Comfortable seats, good quality food, even though departure was delayed by an hour still caught up about half the time. Didn't have to rush to get the connection.

The flight was rescheduled by 6 hrs delay and no accommodation provided. also the connecting flight from India to Doha was minimum basic comfort level.

Everything was fine

The breakfast menu was quite disappointing in comparison to the other food I’m used to being served on Qatar Airways

It was bad experience i has booking on business class Bombay to doha but they changed airline equipment and had to fly on couch. They promised to get me voucher at get but no voucher or any email Please call me to resolve this problem. Shilu patel 281 948 1724

unfortunately we were unable to travel at this time due to the ongoing Covid situation in Sri Lanka. we hope to go instead in March 2022.

Pros: "The crew was amazing. very helpful and great services."
Cons: "While waiting in the check-in line, it would be better if one of the crew would come and ask the travellers if they have got everything. cause I had my Covid test and it was negative. However, they said that my final destination place won't accept my test. rather me waiting on the line that was not moving ahead at all, I could have sort things out some way. So, it would be nice if the crew would come to the passenger on the line just to make sure they have everything right."
Pros: "The seat that I picked."
Cons: "Running water in the bathroom"
Pros: "Amazing crew. Very attentive to passengers and genuinely nice."
Cons: "As such everything was fine."
Cons: "Food from New York to doha was average. Doha to Karachi excellent. Over all it was excellent experience. People on the ground at doha airport was exceptional. Very courteous and ready to go serve. This is what I call real service."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable. The entertainment system was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew was disorganized."
Cons: "Every thing is good"
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "seat was okay, far from comfortable, plane too cold, although they did have blankets, late boarding, no particular reason, it's probably not Qatar's fault, but baggage service at JFK was terrible."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Qatar counter check asked how long I will be staying in Ho Chi Minh, even though my visa expired in 2022! Surprise and they are aware of my ticket with a return in Thi September. Then I was asked for how long I will stay is not of Qatar concern. Too much of concern!"

Cons: "Announcement volume too loud"
Cons: "Ord to Doh: People kept window blinds open all through 15 hour flight Flight temperature kept very warm"
Pros: "Overall a good service with good food."
Cons: "When flying from New Zealand to Doha, we departed Auckland at 15h25 and due to the time zone, most passengers body clocks would have been expecting sleep within a few hours. However we were flying West and thus into daylight. Sadly the window seated passengers were not asked to close their window blinds to block out the sunlight and many were left open. This made the cabin very bright and a difficult environment in which to sleep. Too much advertising before the on board videos, but otherwise content was good."
Pros: "decent leg room. the staff was accommodating"
Cons: "the brea was har. some of the food was overheated thus making it hard to eat"
Pros: "The ease of connection from New York to Nagpur. It was a breeze."

Also, the only male guy in the crew was trying to solve some meal issues and was trying to tell the hostess how not to tell the passenger!! All of it could be easily conveyed discreetly but he seemed to be least bothered!"

Cons: "old entertainment options little space to move about"
Cons: "Requested Asian vegetarian mean but available was non vegetarian. Led screen did not working."

They said that they have to charge me a $615 penalty on top of the $750 i had payed for the ticket for cancellation. They mentioned that ill be refunded my $750 from qatar as they got a waiver for me. I received $250 from qatar airways and nothing yet. Airfare's customer service staff is highly uncooperative and v rude"
Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"
Pros: "Very spacious, good food & service"

TestTest

Pros: "Easy to check in, outstanding crew!"
Cons: "Old, old, old plane! :("
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: "Everything else"
Cons: "The crew didn’t have me the right food"
Pros: "Not really Seat cushion hard ."
Cons: "Boarding disorganised..little management of the process"
Pros: "Flight attendants are very friendly, actually smile, rather than scowl at you, as so many of the American carriers do."
Pros: "Food, and space"
Cons: "Nothing"
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: "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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very poor service overall"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Pros: "We got upgraded to business class--best experience of my life!!!"

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: "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: "Food and crew"
Pros: "The food was decent."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit disorganized."

Pros: "Everything was great. They have it together."
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."

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."
Pros: "A380 is so quiet and smooth. Nice to be up the front of the plane, albeit on the lower floor in economy."
Pros: "The airplanes are confortable and the crew and service very good. For a 3 hour flight that even provided a full meal. Other airlines would have only give you peanuts"

An old plane, with entertainment wifi failures, cold sandwich.

Need certificate yellow fevor we dont know this,boarding impossible

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "They should be on time but we left 30 minutes later."

Cons: "Not to pay for ítems that are bebefits with Workdmember credit CARD Santander I paíd luggage and they dont return money baca even if you made the mistake"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"
Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."
Pros: "Puntual"
Pros: "Business class is nice and comfortable with LATAM"
Cons: "More choices for the mains would be great"
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"

Cons: "more seat space and padding, no charge for soft drinks"
Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"
Pros: "The seats were typical airliner seats - good enough but more leg room would be nice. Our flights ran on time, and the crew was excellent. Our experience at the Lima Airport was much improved from our first stop there."
Pros: "Excellent price and value. Great service both before and after travelling with an infant"
Cons: "Food quality could be better"
Pros: "We made the flight in great time after our connecting flight was delayed."

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."

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."

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: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
Cons: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
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"
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"
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: "Old airplane"
Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"
Pros: "While my flight attendants were all fine and everything was very good, my daughter flew w/ LATAM 3 days later than us and her experience was good on all flights except from Lima to Rio de Janeiro."
Cons: "It was all very good on the flight TO Lima. No problems."
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."

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."

What could improve is the way the crew treats us/passengers; also information should be offered more freely to us if there are significant delays especially when the delays negatively affect our connecting flights and plans at our final destinations.

Standard flight. Could be better by taking off and/or arriving at scheduled time.

Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"
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."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"
Pros: "The crew and the seats were okay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 2 hrs. We should receive credits for that."
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: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Pros: "First class for such a short haul."
Cons: "Lack of service."
Pros: "Old plane with new seats. The exit row window seat — which they rate as a preferred seat was terrible as the exit door sticks into the plane and takes away your room. And the seat doesn’t recline - they forget to say that."
Cons: "New Airplane"
Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful, and flight was relatively pleasant."
Cons: "Entertainment system was poor and lagging. Restroom facilities were atrocious."
Cons: "Delays again. Can American. Ever be on time?"
Pros: "We took off on time and landed about 45 minutes early. That was great"
Cons: "My bags were lost and didn't arrive in New York with. They were not delivered until 1am that night."
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
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: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
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."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
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....."
Pros: "Arriving on time for the next connection"
Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."
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: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Cons: "We thought we were going to be flying on British Airways American Airways."
Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"
Cons: "Extremely old plane"
Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Pros: "Very comfortable and nice staff"
Cons: "Had a 2.5 delay on one of my connectors from NY to Madrid. Was worried I wouldn't make my flight to Vigo on time, but I did!"
Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight attendant was arrogant. This is her job... just for $$$"
Pros: "Very nice gate crew, efficient boarding, quick and efficient takeoff"
Cons: "Found out that a lot of Argentinians do not obey the crew rules. Before the seatbelt sign turns off they already start moving to the front of the plane. But off course is not the airline duty to teach manners."
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Pros: "The plane size and the individual monitors on each seat."
Cons: "Some of the attendants didn't seem to know what they were doing."
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Cons: "Seats far too close together even for cosch"

My seat was upgraded without extra cost. The crew were amazing and attentive! Smooth flight.

I had a tight connection in Denver and the lead attendant made sure to facilitate my making the next flight. Along with the entire plane of people!

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.

All good in Rio, some confusion at Houston on-boarding could be smoother.

Cons: "incredibly crowded seats"
Pros: "Made up time on delayed flight. Friendly, efficient and helpful."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Good crew on both trips"
Cons: "No crying children"
Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "No complaints about the flight or the crew."
Cons: "Delayed repeatedly. 3 hours behind schedule and no clear explanation was offered."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."
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."
Pros: "My daughter never made the flight because the ticket referenced a gate at LHR that didn't exist. No one at the airport was able to assist her in obtaining the correct gate and she subsequently missed the flight."
Cons: "See above"
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: "The Rio de Janeiro international airport is very difficult to traverse. However, the airport staff was very helpful in directing me several times to the correct location."
Cons: "United needs a check-in kiosk located between the domestic arrivals section and the international connection hallway just before security. I had to walk to the complete length of the airport and back again, just to check-in. Other airlines, such as Delta, have a kiosk located just before the security entrance. The cabin temperature was absolutely freezing during the flight, and I am usually hot."
Pros: "Salmon and rice."
Cons: "Tvs not working and staff pretending as if they would fix it but actually the problem been going for a while with that airplane. The pizza should not only be a vegetarian one ."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Pay for headphones"
Pros: "Loved the direct Tv"
Cons: "Turbulence"
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: "Taggged carry-on bag, claimed A/C had no space, when I boarded saw lots of bin space not used. I am on a transfer to Intl. fight, so in sFO had to claim baggage and go through all of security again"
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: "Airplane was super cold. No extra blankets. Passengers freezing. Impossible to sleep."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "All the flight crew was incredibly attentive, particularly with those with special needs. From helping them to use the facilities to getting them little extras. It was a nice thing to see - especially in a such long (14+ hrs) flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system and service carts were quite outdated. There were no visible place to charge my phone. It takes away from the strong people service."
Pros: "The whole flight was fine. It was on time and there were no problems."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. In particular, the head rests are not high enough for me to use and are not adjustable."
Cons: "bad web site lost luggage stolen items from luggage no option to wrap my luggage in plastic unfriendly staff late flight and take off"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "Friendly efficient staff with good service and comfortable jet."
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up in our row only, would have been nice to know. Waffle snacks taste good but are very crumbly and make a mess, there were other options for $$. Stating "free wifi" is misleading as you have to pay for internet access."
Cons: "Our home was damaged, and we were without power for 6 days due to Hurricane Irma. We called the airlines repeatedly in an effort to cancel the ticket before the flight. They refused to cancel the tickets. Heartless"
Pros: "I enjoyed the assistance, the food and the movies"
Cons: "I liked every single bit of my experience."
Cons: "We star boarding 20 min late, after that the airplane was totally full i was separated from my family"
Pros: "On time - smooth flight. Male flight attendant loved his job! Great personality and energy- nice to see!"
Pros: "Everything. Specially, the United entertainment thing."
Pros: "Your reminders!"
Pros: "No delays, everything went smooth"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No meal on business, no free internet, no entertainment"
Pros: "Departure and arrival were on schedule."
Cons: "We booked a flight on ANA Airlines specifically for our trip to Japan. However, upon arriving at the airport to board our plane we discovered the flight was operated by another carrier. Out intent and desire was to fly on ANA."
Cons: "Roundtrip flight to Seattle with a layover, first flight went without incident, so far so good. On the flight back (during a layover) literaly 5 minutes till boarding the plane, the pilot is ready to go, the people are standing in line, United decides it wont make enough $ on the flight and gives it to an Ontario flight. We are canceled and now have to wait 4 additional hours in the airport. Was told it was air traffic control that messed up, not United, which was not even possible and an obvious untruth. Was offered a complimentary bottle of water for the trouble. Classic united."
Cons: "Great flight crew"
Cons: "the plane was cold early in the morning. I was feeling cold in the plane."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "I liked that going from Puerto Vallarta to LAX was non stop; free chex style mix and drinks"
Cons: "The boarding was so disorganized; boarding another plane within 15 minutes at gate next to ours; had to sit on floor to rest; going on bus out to plane would have been better if there was a way to make it single file, and not close to another boarding plane. Boarding groups make it disorganized--perhaps it would make more sense to board from back, but I am guessing it is done by boarding group for those who insist on taking large bags onboard to avoid the fee. By the way, tax on the $25.00 per bag charge????"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 hours. Mixed signals from Captain and United whether or not flight would be cancelled. Forced to check only carry on at gate, citing lack of space, but plenty seen when aboard. Entertainment was limited to one channel if you don't want to pay some amount of money. Couldn't even look at the flight status screen. Stuck with only garbage home renovation show."
Pros: "getting off the plane is faster than i'd expect it to be"
Cons: "-kayak, priceline, lufthansa, united!?!?!? the booking was not clear -please provide free wifi w/o jacking up the costs somewhere else -the entertainment system's touch screen is rather clumsy"
Pros: "The crew was very delightful and kept us hydrated."
Cons: "The food, mail meal was icky. Wishing the entertainment was simple, with access right there on board without having to download, have a computer ect..."
Pros: "1st class experience was great."
Cons: "Time between load and take off"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
