The wifi wasn’t working, waste of money. There was no space for carry in baggage, had to hold all the valuables and the carry in baggage was went to cargo

Not the most comfortable business class out there

Pros: "Nothing. Missed the flight as the crew directed us to the wrong gate"
Cons: "Support staff"
Pros: "Amazing seats and crew"
Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Everything was very nice"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Cons: "They lost one of my bags. I had to file a complaint with emirates office."
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."
Cons: "Slow to board."
Pros: "Really liked the long journey. Was a bit nervous given the 15 hour flight but was pleasantly surprised. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The crew were really young and not very talkative."
Pros: "The plane was spacious and we had really good seats , next to the toilet and wall in front of us. Super, as we were traveling with a toddler and he was able to sit on the floor in front of us and play with his toys. Food came out promptly and was tasty. Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."
Cons: "The delay in boarding! It’s hard work when traveling with a toddler."
Pros: "Good facilities, food and entertaniment. Seat comfort not so good."
Pros: "The service, food and boarding were all excellent. It brought back the joy of flying like what used to know in the 80s."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Flying with Emirates is always great."
Pros: "The food was good and the service was great. I also had a great seat in the front row."
Cons: "We were delayed by over 2 hours We had no where to park when we landed so we had to wait for buses to take us toche terminal There was no new and exciting movies that excited me"
Pros: "Polite staff and professional."
Cons: "I was asleep so I did not get my arrival card from the crew when landing in transit in Yangon"
Pros: "Extremely quiet plane since they placed people in front of the half empty plane. Great plane food and internet access, limited to text but still incredibly useful to text people from the air."
Cons: "I checked in online, but when I went to drop my bags there was about a 20 min delay. the agent needed to make 2 phone calls and conference with 2 supervisors. All this without letting me know what was going on."
Pros: "Business class upgrade was available for this flight, and it was well worth it."
Cons: "The food was mediocre, at best. Odd food combination choices. I don't expect gourmet on a flight, so don't try to pretend you're serving it."
Cons: "Very late. Caused us to miss outlet rental car. Left us stranded at the airport."

Cons: "Late departure but made up time in flight"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "I was inzble to select vegetarian meal on ypur website"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Pros: "The entertainment system"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "The people at ticket issuing counter is very arrogant. Customs form was not given while issuing ticket and I was sent back to the airline ticketing counter and had to stand back in line for customs."
Pros: "Check-in was efficient and staff were extremely helpful. Flight itself was comfortable, food was actually tasty, and in-flight entertainment was great. Overall an amazing experience compared to US carriers."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."
Pros: "I enjoyed my first time flying with Emirates from Australia to New Zealand The checking in was quick, easy and the staff were friendly. The crew were polite, and friendly with excellent customer service. Refreshments and Entertainment were first class. I will be flying Emirates from now on."
Pros: "Comfortable cabin, attentive crew, if somewhat aloof. Food okay, but better than a 2 ounce package of salty pretzel mix for $3! All in all, quite good."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Cons: "Plane was dirty, staff seemed rushed and inexperienced, soaps empty in bathroom"
Cons: "So much delayed due to plane problem.. 8 hours total delay..."

Cons: "Confusion with wrong menus being handed out - on 2 flights!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."

The flight crew was very impressive and friendly. Very accommodating.

Very bad.

I bought my son’s tickets 3 months before the flight through an agency just to request flight attendant services. On the day of the flight the agency called me in the morning saying Latam had canceled the flight from Boston and that aid have to drive my son yo New York. I get that the poor communication wasn’t Latam’s fault but I called Latam at least a dozen times to confirm that everything was OK and that my son would still have the flight attendant service and I was told by many different customers services that things were OK but when we got to the airport I had the most horrible time ever. They told me the service was requested but but approved and that my son would have to flight without the flight attendant service and they kept telling me since he’s 12 he didn’t need flight attendant? An international flight for the very first time unaccompanied and they wanted me to just let it happen? It took me over 1 hour of arguing and explaining that I’ve bought the tickets over 3 months ahead of time just to be certain that my son would have the flight attendant services on both ways and they finally told me they’d add the service last minute because they understood that my flight from Boston got canceled. I paid $150 each way and my son did not seat with the other kids nor was supervised during the flights. They simply sat him and disappeared until the flight landed. I cannot believe how ridiculous and irresponsible this was and I really hope to never use Latam’s services again. I DO NOT recommend Latam to anyone. I had the most difficult time ever and I always do everything ahead of time to make sure things go smoothly. The agency where I bought the tickets is located in Marlborough, Ma right in Main st abs I also do not recommend anyone to waste time and money with them. I cannot believe that they waited until the day of the flight to inform me I had to drive 4 hours plus to a different state. Of course it’s my mistake for not have checked but I left the agency with the paper print out with the flight information saying I’d leave from Boston so I trusted it. Not going to happen again. I always bought my international tickets online and never had any problems but since my son was Ma going to travel alone, I decided to use the agency. Horrible experience. I’m so happy it’s over.

Purchasing tickets through BudgetAir was underwhelming...

Flight boarded late and left late making the Sao Paulo connection more stressful..

Left on the dark all flight.crew disappeared after safety video, poor food and drink service and cramped seating.

the fly too late. delay

Pros: "seat was comfortable"
Cons: "On a long flight, lack of drinking water during the flight, need to improve on this. Lack of communication needs to be improved"
Cons: "The flight was delayed at the last minute"
Cons: "As it was a short flight it was ok but their system of checking in/ baggage drop off is really poor and disorganised. Everyone was queuing together for baggage drop, checking... it was a mess and took ages. It’s unfair on those who have already checked in online because you were ended up queuing with everyone else."
Cons: "Bad"
Pros: "it was ok flight, but on time, very important to me"
Cons: "the food... cream cracker and very sweet cake..."
Cons: "Snack . Don’t have 0 snack in the plane"
Pros: "Business class is nice and comfortable with LATAM"
Cons: "More choices for the mains would be great"
Cons: "Flying on schedule"
Cons: "more seat space and padding, no charge for soft drinks"
Pros: "easy enough..."
Pros: "Excellent price and value. Great service both before and after travelling with an infant"
Cons: "Food quality could be better"
Pros: "Good service and food. Though food tray was small. not very many choices. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "The boarding process in Lima was chaotic. I was to continue on the same plane from Miami and Lima to Buenos Aires, however, nobody mentioned I could stay on the same aircraft, so they made me go off the plane out the arriving area hall, again through security, which was a hassle, almost forgot my wrist watch..... all that to end up in the same gate to board the same plane. a total waste of time and energy...."
Cons: "No entertainment. The airplane seems to be an older model."
Pros: "The plane left on time. My LATAM flight to Sydney on Wednesday 12 September was cancelled and I missed a meeting that day in Sydney as a result."
Cons: "We fly during lunch time and were only serviced a snack. Something more substantial would have been in order."
Pros: "Perfect flight arrived 20 min early !!"
Cons: "None all great"
Pros: "I liked the presentation, the effort that LATAM puts forward in general. They have great uniforms that reminds me of old airlines, in a good way."
Cons: "The services is good, but they do not do it with a smile on their face. I asked for a cup of water and both times it took them about 10 minutes to get me that cup. The crew always seems to be bothered to serve the customer. There is also a big difference between services going straight to Santiago on the 787 and to Peru on the 767. I understand the plan (767) is older and that does not bother me. What bothers me is the disparity in service between the two. I received great service the first time I traveled on LATAM, ever since then they have disappointed. I do not understand what is going on with them."
Pros: "Boeing 787 Dreamliner, plane looked brand new. Attendants are friendly. Food is excellent. Best flight experience in many years."
Pros: "Was cold so requested a blanket, was told we will see ..Blankets were given to passengers in the front seat but I was ignored. I usually carry a warm scarf so do not need airline blankets."
Cons: "No issues will travel on this airline again."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, comfortable and well laid out."
Cons: "Some of the staff had a problem with English enunciation which makes it very difficult for aging passengers to understand"
Pros: "The aircraft."
Cons: "Charger $190 for a second check in bag of 7kg. Extremely rude staff. Terrible food. Never fly with them again!"
Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
Pros: "Rescheduled on to a different airline."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Service on board great people"
Cons: "Overbooked flight we had to wait with baby and 4 years old kid till last minute to know if we could get on board or not. Latam wanted us to fly in three different seats we told them that we were happy to flight next day but they pushed till last minute waiting. When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."

Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and confusing, no where to sit at gate."
Pros: "The entertainment was awesome."

Cons: "Tight space between seats"
Cons: "No complimentary beverage service I.e. Water or food. On a three hour flight, that is totally unacceptable."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was top notch. Crew was wonderful and the plane itself was excellent."
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Pros: "We left a pocketbook at our Apt that we did not realize until we arrived at the airport. We called LATAM Airlines to cancel our flight. Can we receive any refund? Thanks, Tom and Leigh King"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Missed my first leg and then they canceled my return leg without telling me. I then had to pay for a new flight"
Cons: "Latam Flight was delayed for maintenance and notice was not given via email/text or call. Desk agent pointed at paper taped on desk and asked us to read about the delay vs telling us what to expect."
Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"
Cons: "The boarding process how backwards they do it And make you check carry on items Anf don't offer online check in"
Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."
Cons: "Food was average. I got a chicken sandwich. It was cold (meant to be a cold sandwich) and not particularly tasty. Also, there was limited range of drinks. I asked for tomato juice and this was not available."
Pros: "Nice staff, on time"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The crew seemed to ish they were somewhere else. I was in business class and had to beg for a drink after an hour of flying."

Never go to miami plane arrived late passport control took over 4 hrs so missed the flight to Boston then got a flight from miami to London had to pay over a £500 for a night stay in airport hotel then the messed up checking in the the baggage not happy at all going to make a claim

Traveled in business class and all they offered, besides liquor, wine and other refreshment, were chips and cookies...really?!

Wifi couldve been a lot better

The employees at the PHL Airport were terrible. Security people were beyond rude and couldn’t have been any less helpful. Thank goodness fir my flight, it was excellent.

Pros: "The staff at seatac airport were condescending and not helpful...traveling with a service dog and made to pay the pet fee and talked about me where I can over hearnthen in a manner that embarassed me"
Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. Super considerate and very fun to talk to/be around especially on my first flight."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing! The entertainment was not necessary for such short flights and were still available. The pretzels were... well... pretzels so no complaint there. Overall great flight"
Pros: "Great polite crew attentive to every need"
Pros: "Super nice crew, 787 plane, entertainment"
Cons: "Seat comfort. Very little legroom"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was like herding cattle. Everyone blocked the stairs. A frustrating mess."
Cons: "Needed better food selection"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Cons: "Flight attendants gruff, coffees small, TV screens glitchy/ poor quality. Everything seemed just a bit old and worn"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "The plane was not busy so services took about 5 minutes, everyone had 2 seats minimum and generally quiet. Had it been busy, it would have been different in that seats were not very wide, aisles very small, if the seat in front reclines and you don't, you can't see your screen and not a lot of space in general."
Cons: "If you want to select your seat, be prepared to pay £175 per flight. This is ridiculous! Second meal was a very bare bbq beef pie or sweet potato pie... On their own with nothing else and it arrived 30 minutes before we landed so very rushed. On a 9.5hr flight the 2nd meal needed to be an actual meal and come sooner than it did."
Cons: "I purchased a WiFi pass and the WiFi did not work. Since the airplane does not have individual TV’s on each seat, it makes it for a very long flight. I also did not like that the passengers had to take a bus to the airplane and we’re shoved like sardines in a can in 95 degree weather."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."
Cons: "Still waiting to get to the terminal."
Cons: "American wins tge coach torture contest!"
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "For an obviously new aircraft the space between rows was horrendous. I am 5ft4in tall and when I sat down my knees touched the seat in front of me. When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."
Cons: "Food service was not announced. Take off was delayed one hour"
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Cons: "Very crowded, rude passengers"
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "easy on and easy off. ontime."
Cons: "would like more comfort in the seats and a pretty young lady sitting next to me."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Very cramped seating Delays on both flights"
Cons: "Delayed by two hours."
Pros: "The plane was nicer and cleaner."
Cons: "Heading Back to Philadelphia from Miami took so long for the plane to arrive from Philadelphia. We had a 2 hour delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "Haven't left yet don't leave until today the flight was behind due to maintenance"
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and had good foot space."
Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."
Pros: "Nice crew,very efficient."
Cons: "You cancel my entire round trip flight because I missed the first flight? No other airline does this. I'll never fly with AA again. You should take notes on how Delta works"
Pros: "Fantastic first class seats and service."
Pros: "I slept through the flight"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. Very unorganized the agents were rude I was over charged for my bags an to top it off the supervisor witnessed the whole debacle and asked what I would like her to do about it."

great personal interaction by flight staff. Small point. Having missed eating the main meal served just after boarding as I needed to sleep as I had been travelling 24 hours , the promised inflight light snack was not offered and not obvious how to get it. Would have appreciated more drinks offered throughout the flight.

Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Everything could be better. From the boarding process to the on board service."
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable and badly maintained. Seatback stowage netting was detached and useless. There was an equipment change (new larger aircraft) I had a B (aisle seat) on the original aircraft and on the new plane my "B" seat became a middle seat. This was completely unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Lack of communication from flight deck or cabin crew as to engine shutdown and takeoff delay at MSO. Just plain irritating and completely unnecessary"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Crew and entertainment."
Cons: "Offer more food and beverages due to long delay and sitting in the plane for over an hour before take off."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Cons: "Not having had to be on a connecting flight in a totally different terminal 20 minutes after I land in Newark."
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Cons: "The fact that they give all first class passengers dibs on the hot food and that leaves NOTHING for the folks in economy plus. The FA said that they only had a limited amount anyway. I was willing to purchase that buy high food cuz I was hungry instead I filled up on water and ginger ale and went to sleep on the 4 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Crew. Entertainment. Food. Leg room was a bit longer than usual."
Cons: "I was unable to pre-order a kosher meal through the web site. Customer service could barely write in legible English and in essence told me to take a hike. Flight was bumpy both ways for quite a while. What's the point of giving me a boarding pass in Tel Aviv if I need to go to the United transfer counter in Brussels and go through the process again, including a TSA (friendly) interrogation?"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and light hearted."
Pros: "No problem boarding. Had no issue with overhead storage. Crew waa great, helpful, and friendly."
Cons: "More leg room. Anyone 6'+ won't be too comfy in economy"
Pros: "Nice flight crew served Illy coffee as a delightful beverage surprise Overnight flight was smooth and restful On-time departure and early arrival exceeded our expectations"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "An old 777 , dirty and the food was horrible."
Cons: "Internet service did not work as advertised."
Pros: "Captain was communicative before departure and during flight Boarding was orderly"
Cons: "After aircraft was parked a strange loud noise could have been heard for 30 seconds. Would be nice if a crew member (flight attendant or captain) assured passengers that it was normal. Noise didn't seem normal and I was very concerned. No infotainment options."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The leg room & the service"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight to Pittsburgh was cancelled and NO attempt to rebook was made by united. No compensation. I had to fly to Cleveland and rent a car for $150 and drive to Pittsburgh. United refused to pay for my rental car. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Making the connectoin in SFO worked out because both flights were delayed. Offering bottled water and chips to waiting passengers was a small courtesy that I heard others appreciated."
Cons: "Couldn't understand the PA announcements in Eugene. Audio clarity problem. Flight delayed. It happens. I prefer media content from United accessed through the cabin wi-fi. That option wasn't working on one flight segment. Just an hour flight though. I'm 6'2". Could future planes have a variety of seat sizes? The leg room in economy is actually sufficient for me. It was difficult to find my delayed flights on the departures screen. United employees didn't complain about helping me though."
Pros: "Courteous and no delays"
Pros: "Flight was wonderful!"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly for the most part."
Cons: "On both flghts we requested a bassinet for our 3 month old. We were told on the phone if one was available we were able to have it. Both flights had bassinets but we weren't allowed access to them. On our first leg the bassinet was in economy plus and we were economy. On the way home our fight was downsized to a smaller plane and the airline was too busy trying to cut 25 people off the fight they weren't able to give us a seat where the bassinet would be. We asked several flight attendants and got different answers from each one."
Pros: "Flight UA 945 got me home!"
Cons: "Everything. This was a UA plane and LH ticket. We had to check in with LH in a completely different concourse than we departed. The plane was very aged, the carpets and seats were soiled and the bathrooms were in a terrible state of repair and floors filthy. I think this plane is more fitting for the grave yard than the skies. It was completely overcrowded with seats. Although I am only 6 ft tall, my knees touched the seat in front on me. Entertainment was disfunctional to a state of unusable. The small analog screens were streaked and blurry and selection terrible. Audio jacks were worn so bad you could maintain contact one ear but at the time. Food was awful and very sparse and served by very Grouchy crew members. Breakfast and a snack were inedible. No real meal was served. Never again on UA. I recommend LH consider divorcing themselves from UA."
Pros: "Overhead bin space"
Cons: "5 able-bodied pax's allowed pre-board privilege because they were traveling with a single wheelchair pax was ridiculous. No signage on seat of where to locate power charge."
Cons: "I am handicapped. Boarding agent abused me. Made me walk to plane on tarmac in stocking feet. Asked for wheel chair and was denied. Have congestive heart failure and could hardly make it on the plane. The man should be fired. Deputy sheriff with him was just as bad glad to go into more detail with someone. Will report united to govt. small Airport would not ever be reorder."
Pros: "Entertainment via the phone was nice First meal was okay with pasta and bread Facilities were clean Power source below seat was good"
Cons: "Entertainment via plane monitors was bad Sound for entertainment via plane monitors kept breaking up Second meal with a turkey sando and chips was bland Seats weren't comfortable No internet provided"
Pros: "Everything about the flight and process was very efficient and very comfortable. The flight attendants and crew are always so friendly on United flights! My favorite airline!"
Pros: "The crew was very thoughtful, and courteous."
Cons: "The monitor for my viewing was out of order. There was no complimentary food offered, but there was a nice selection of beverages offered."
Pros: "They gave me TSA pre-check. I don't know why, since I'm not signed up."
Cons: "Prices should be discounted for being in the last row (e.g., seats don't recline), especially on a 5 hour red-eye that was packed. These are the narrowest seats and aisles I've ever experienced in over fifty years of commercial flying, and that includes Asiana. No food offered, even for purchase. One flight attendant was sarcastic with me with no provocation on my part."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"
Pros: "From Chicago to San Francisco was great"
Pros: "The flight attendant was great! Pleasant, polite and professional!"
Cons: "The flight from ORD to ABE was on a plane with expired maintenance logs or inspections? We were delayed 2 hours in arriving for what seemed like a pilots lax in paperwork. But what does a customer expect from an airline who knows they that customer by the balls?"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "The way you bord the plane"
Pros: "Same as above, same plane even. Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was extremely cramped."
Cons: "Bought the ticket with Brussels, but it was operated by United. Late departure. When we boarded, we found that United had booked another person in my assigned seat! Had to stand in the aisle for nearly 10 minutes while attendant found another seat for us, farther back in the plane and in the center section. Absolutely no legroom and the food was hardly edible. Every few years I fly United in the hope that they'll have gotten better, but it just never seems to happen. Still can not recommend this airline."
Pros: "friendly service newspaper punctuality"
Cons: "the snack little legroom"
Pros: "On time, gates were close together"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "Easy boarding , good leg room. Two seats rather than three to each side."
Cons: "No entertainment or headsets"
