Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "That they left my luggage, 1 piece off entire flight! A brightly patterned piece! In 50 years of flying!!! Has NEVER happened! Had to spend the 1st several hours running around looking for underwear and jacket! Not a great start to vacation! And $100 nzd doesn't buy much!"
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "I was excited to see some notorious places as we flew into Queenstown....however, I wouldn't have known the places if I hadn't been sitting next to someone that knew the area."
Cons: "I can't complain about anything with Air New Zealand....I loved each flight with them."
Pros: "There was so much I loved, but what really stood out was the mood was set from the beginning....music, lighting, and the welcome message on the screens that were personalized for passengers. Great food and the friendliest airline crew ever. I also loved the safety video....it wasn't boring even though I knew to he information."
Cons: "I was in the middle of the middle row, but even then....I couldn't complain.....most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The customer service was great when I missed my flight."
Cons: "It was difficult to have a shorty layover and transfer from Auckland to Queenstown. I missed my flight."
Pros: "The pilot would tell us as we were flying over different mountains, regions etc, and the flight was not at all crowded, and there is so much more seat space than on any domestic American flight I’ve ever flown!"
Cons: "They charged 60NZD for one small checked bag! And then I misunderstood the policy on lithium batteries and switched my power banks from carry-on to checked bag and they confiscated them. So there goes that."
Cons: "Unable to check-in online because of an international connection. Also, we need to pay extra for everything."
Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Air NZ are great. Kayak are not,"
Cons: "I couldn’t tell about the food and entertainment because even after several call to Kayak trying to upgrade to a flight where food and entertainment were included because it said “no meal service” on my itinerary I was assured they were included and what do you know. They weren’t. I will never be using Kayak again. Very poor serve from people I phoned. They did no know what they were doing."
Pros: "Things generally went well on this flight; you never know what you're going to get, and this was successful- all went well!"
Cons: "Wasn't all that bad!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, airplane was clean, flight attendants friendly and attentive. Very pleasant flying experience"
Pros: "Comfortable flight and service"
Pros: "Unlike the American flights, they actually served a light snack (not pretzels and nuts) and offered complementary wine and beer. The ride was pleasant."
Cons: "For the economy passengers, we had to go down a flight of stairs onto the tarmac and then back up on a portable stairs to get onto the plane. The same was true when we were deboarding the plane. This has more to do with the airports than with Air New Zealand."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Someone sitting in my seat already!"
Cons: "Having to pick up our bags and going through customs was horrible and stressful. Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good lleg room in the aircraft. Friendly service."
Pros: "These guys are the best!"
Cons: "Flight was too short"
Cons: "Staff was not friendly or attentive."
Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."
Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"
Pros: ".."
Cons: "."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Very friendly and frequent service while in-flight. It was great having my own monitor built into the seat to watch available movies or tv shows I wanted to for the duration of the flight. Flight attendants would walk the aisles every two hours and offer water to everyone. I had never flown Air New Zealand before, but now it's one of my top airlines."
Cons: "The only complaint would be that there was no in-flight wifi available onboard."
Pros: "Large screen with good choice of movies etc"
Cons: "As they have 3-4-3 seating on their 777 (BA and Delta have 3-3-3) the seats are very narrow to make room for the extra seat in school row"

It was very good

Cons: "30 passengers on a 60 seat plane. We should have been spaced out due to the Coronavirus, but NO. We reallocated seats which had us all jammed up the front and back with rows of empty seats in between. Not good enough Qantas! I asked to change and the cery pleasant hostess said no we were NOT allowed. I do NOT understand this."
Pros: "The crews were very polite and efficient."
Cons: "The seats were excellent, but the storage and configuration below the Airbus equivalents."
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable,"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "WiFi was intermittent and if Qantas is going to rely on us to bring the equipment then they better get the service reliability right. I don’t see ticket prices or wine quality improving by passing entertainment infrastructure on to us..."
Pros: "Great crew and comfortable sear"
Cons: "Older plane so entertainment system left a bit to be desired"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That I was rebooked for a flight I showed up to before it took me off. Literally people that showed up after me got on the plane"
Cons: "Allow married people to travel with their new names."
Pros: "Crew was good. Seats somehow seemed narrower than normal flights I have taken with Qantas. Sat in middle not even enough space to drink tea comfortably. Wouldn't want to be in that position for any longer flights."
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Not enough toilets - always a queue. More leg room."
Cons: "The seats were too narrow and uncomfortable"
Pros: "The braised beef dinner was excellent, the crew were really helpful and the entertainment good. Arrived early as well.Qantas seems to have great pilots as very little in the way of bumpiness on landing. So well done guys."
Cons: "Nothing much. I have long legs so it's hard to get comfortable enough to sleep."
Pros: "The seats had more room than the bigger planes. We were offered a very nice sandwich for lunch There was cool air pumped around the plane from the moment we boarded"
Cons: "This flight was pleasant, so nothing to worry about."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We DIDN"T GET TO FLY TO SYDNEY. We were re-routed to SAN FRAN, then to Melbourne! WE MISSED TWO DAYS of our trip!!"
Cons: "I wasn’t given the seats I had chosen when purchasing the ($3,000) tickets. The seats in the “Dreamliner” were cramped and hard—uncomfortable."
Cons: "An old plane for a long haul to Australia, uncomfortable seats, freezing temperature in the cabin, mediocre food. Not what a traveler expects in business class in today’s travel world."
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "Poor food and no choice, only given tofu noodles! The general appearance of the plane was dated and worn, needs a refit. It felt more like a cheap budget airline not ‘the spirit of australia’ as branded. The touch screen was so bad that you forced the persons head in front to move when you pressed the screen."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and my itinerary was re-booked and going thru Melbourne to Perth. I lost half day of my life wasted in the Airport. The worst part of this change was flying on an old 737 thru Melbourne without the entertainment access for this long flight."
Pros: "Service good"
Pros: "Rob Cumming was the supervisor crew for our section. He was very good at trying to compensate for the big problems that Qantas had created for us."
Cons: "ruin my seat arrangement for no reason! We were traveling as a family of 7 (2 grandparents from each side, my husband, my 4 year son and myself). We paid $30 per person per seat so that we could sit together and watch out for each other because some of the grandparents are in their 80's. However, when we checked in, we found out all our seats were re-arranged and in the worst possible way! Our 4 year old child was assigned in middle seat no where near my husband or myself. In addition, the family was divided in half, separated by the service station. I had switched seat so I can sit with my son but my husband had to sit at the other side of the service station to take care of the other half of the family because they do not speak English. I was left to attend to my 4 year old son by myself, which was hard to do. what bothers me the most is that there seem to be no obvious reason for them to re-arranged seats in such a devastating manner - it was not a full flight at all. I saw quite a few empty seats in the back. We spoke to the woman who was the head of the stewardess about the problem upon boarding, she said she would try to see what she could do, but she never got back to us at all. The seats were horrible seats for a few reason. First, there were a lot of traffic and noise from crew and other passengers because they were next to the Service station. Second, we were always the last one to receive food service because of the location. This is a problem when you have 4 year old and 80 years old who were diabetics."
Pros: "The flight was fast, crew was awesome and overall was awesome"
Cons: "My kayak app wasn’t updated to the correct flight time so they had to put me on the last flight to Melbourne that would make it. Thankfully quantas is awesome and got it done."
Cons: "We were booked for a connecting flight we could not possiblely have made given we had to go through customs, immigragion and baggage claim. We had to catch a later flight which was then delayed because none of the toilets worked."
Pros: "The business class attention, and the quietness of an A380"
Cons: "Old style ‘ pod’ business seats.They are hard to sit , and not private like newer versions Silly extendable pop up tv screens with poor resolution"
Pros: "New business layout is more comfortable comfortable and private."
Cons: "Really unnecessary delays."
Pros: "The flight was perfect, good leg space in economy, food was good both breakfast and dinner, even snacks were available during the flight."
Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Very friendly and attentive - entertainment selection was great and the plane stayed nice and cool which is really helpful for a 15hr flight - no one needs 300 sweaty people for 15 its."
Cons: "That we were required to check our overhead bag because it weighed more than 15lbs. Meanwhile as we boarded nearly every passenger had an overhead bag that most certainly weighed more than 15lbs. Not sure what was going on there...also the seats are a little tight when reclined. Once the seat in front of me reclined back I had my knees in the back of the chair the entire flight and I am not a particularly tall person- made for a pretty uncomfortable 15hrs."
Pros: "Seriously, in all my years of flying this was the best experience I've ever had - and that includes comparing my Economy ticket at Qantas to previous First Class flights with Delta and US Air. Very coordinated, very well setup and prepared. The stewards were wonderful. Food and service outstanding through the entire 13hr flight."
Cons: "My seat screen did not work, but I was ok with that as I had a charged iPad with me."
Pros: "Crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Bathroom for business class was out of order about 2hrs before landing, were told to use the bathroom in the back of plane!"
Pros: "Hot food"
Cons: "Need 34-36" pitch minimum for long haul flights. Grumpy crew"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Entertainment, movies wasn't that great for long haul flight. They could have included more interesting movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Attention by cabin crew was ok. They can be more friendly and approachable. I didn't experience customer care."
Pros: "Not much. The movie selection was ok"
Cons: "How can an airline be worse than United. Ask Qantas because they cracked the code."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Uncomfortable flight, food, boarding, minimum entertainment"
Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "We had comfortable seats and a pleasant flight. Food was good for airline food. Plenty of water and fresh fruit available all through the flight"
Cons: "Wasn't able to complete on line check in."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Crew wa very pleasant and willing to help"
Cons: "Old plane, food was average, luggage wasn't sent first as it usually is for business class and had to wait forever to pick it up"
Pros: "The staff was great, the individual screens and entertainment options were great. Boarding and service was excellent. Included meal and meal options."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg room. My husband and I are both 6ft / 1.8m and on such a long flight, 13hrs it got uncomfortable"
Pros: "Complimentary healthy food, iPads, smiling staff"
Pros: "Good pillows."
Cons: "They let us know by email little before departure that there would be a delay of 1h 15 min in our arrival to London. This made me uneasy from the very beginning that I would lose my London-Luxembourg flight. The crew in the boarding gate, only after much insisting, said they would make a note so that someone from Qantas would wait for me and help me get my London-Luxembourg flight no problem, but in the next stopovers (Melbourne, Dubai), there was no sign of this. Also, the delay in the end was 2h 20 min - and I lost my flight to Luxembourg."
Pros: "The service was great. Flight got delayed a day, but everyone was well taken care of in spite of the situation. During the flight the staff was attentive and courteous. I'd definitely fly with Qantas again."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed, but that was to no fault of the staff. I'd definitely let that slide."
Cons: "I was surprised that we were flying a different carrier than Emirates"
Pros: "Even though these are older aircraft, they have been refurbished and in the premium economy service the staff were excellent."
Cons: "The leg rest didn't go up very far."
Cons: "There was a known 3+ hr delay in Auckland for the second part of the connection through to Sydney, that wasn't advised during the flight. It caused quite a lot of difficulty for the Qantas Lounge Staff who were asked questions and unable to assist as it was operated by LATAM (LAN)"
Pros: "plane will clean and service pleasant. hot meal service on 2.5 hour fight."
Cons: "limit weight of roller carry on limited to 8 kg, though did not check weight of shoulder bags New Zealand immigration is intense with bio inspection - check that you do not have any nuts or other issues as took a long time to inspect packaged food bought at Sydney airport Prior to check-in, needed evidence of flight leaving New Zealand, not just confirm number - paper with actual ticket number"
Pros: "Quantas is great, great food, staff, seats were pretty roomy. Entertainment options were very good."
Cons: "American Airlines. Tiny seats, bad customer services, no entertainment on board, so loud you can't even sleep."
Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Cons: "Almost everything. This airline charges normal fees and offers low cost service. Very bad"
Cons: "The food ."
Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I'm not sure since I slept through most of the 90 minute flight, which is a good sign, I guess. It was an older plane with no entertainment system, but I hate those things, so fine by me. I missed the food this time around, but it was a crappy cold sandwich when I took the same flight a few weeks earlier, but it's a 90 minute flight, so what do you expect?"
Cons: "The boarding process was pointless While this is a quirk of the airport, the airline should change their procedure for this scenario. LATAM splits passengers into different groups: first class, special needs, priority because you paid, everybody else. That's fine at most airports. At Santiago's airport, however, passengers ride a bus from the gate to the plane, mixing up all the groups on the bus, so what's the point? Worse, special needs passengers were the first to get on the bus, but end up last to get off screwing over the elderly and those with small children. What a system!"
Cons: "The stewards were rude and they overbooked the flight. These arrived at the gate at 6:15 and were told we could not board our plane which was to take off at 7:30. Absolute nonsense."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "The snack was ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over one hour and a half and nobody could tell us why"
Pros: "The people were very kind and very respectful."
Cons: "Well I think this doesn’t have nothing to do with the airline, I guess... any way the airport is dirty, and very to buy something you got have more money than you think, the salesperson are not friendly. To get to the plane they checked everybody’s luggage again in the crazy way!"
Pros: "Plane was clean, videos worked well. Cabin attendants were gracious and spoke excellent English. Food was good."
Pros: "Entretenimiento"
Cons: "Retraso en el abordaje y salida De Santiag y retraso en la entrega del equipaje en Lima"
Pros: "Excellent boarding, something that all the airlines should do: starting boarding from the back of the plain. Boarding is much faster."
Cons: "Nothing, they had been VERY unprofessional and incompetent, they lost the luggage and is been now two days of going around back and forth with phone calls to AA and Latham, needless to say this has been a great inconvenience for the passenger and I'm constipated because of it!"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."
Pros: "The whole flight went smoothly and I really have no complaints about the flight itself."
Cons: "When I arrived, my luggage did not make the connecting flight. It was tracked down and hopefully will make it to me soon but you can see how it’s inconvenient. The first leg of my flight was operated by Wamos, though it was a LATAM flight. I know that this is something that happens often for all sorts of reasons, however I can’t help but think it had something to do with the transition of my luggage from one flight to the next. My flights home are similar ( One leg of it being operated by another airline) and needless to say I’m a bit nervous about that."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Fly us never proactively contacted us about the LATAM flight change so we missed this flight. LATAM stepped up and paid for another two flights to get us back to Austin. No thanks to Flyus, whom we will never book with again. Their customer support was a joke! Jeff"
Cons: "They lost my bag and I had to wait a full day to get it back."
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized and not on time. My seat assignment was changed upon boarding the plane. They had assigned 3 people to my seat which was an isle seat I had chosen upon purchasing my ticket 5 months prior. I was changed to a middle seat. They had an extra (makeshift) security check point on the actual boarding ramp. They made everyone open their carry-on bags and suitcases on folding tables just before entering the plane. They also took beverages bought at the gift shops, right before getting on the plane which was unusual. Overall ground crew was not very customer service oriented. In flight crew was better."
Cons: "They lost my bags"
Pros: "I left a scarf on the plain when we landed in NY. And a lamd team member, Kelly, went out of her way to get it back for me right at the airport, and I did!!!! So helpful and efficient and curtious!!! Thank you!!!"
Cons: "There was a 1hour delay leaving Chile, but they made up some time in the air."
Pros: "It was special. Like a special limo"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "It actually was all good"
Cons: "Late departure without giving any reason."
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: "more space in coach section, between seats"
Cons: "less space for legs in seats."
Pros: "Excellent service and the food is awesome :-) It has one of the youngest fleets in the industry!!! the LATAM Dreamliner feels so smooth! You should really try that aircraft, it has a special pressurization that you won't feel the"
Pros: "Great entertainment choices, the best airline food I've ever had, attentive service, lots of amenities, new and modern plane"
Pros: "I loved the whole trip"
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints!!"
Pros: "My first flight on LATAM and very impressed. Fast boarding, lots of help for an English speaking passenger in Chile, newer plane, clean, and efficient flight attendants. I'll be back!"
Pros: "Plane on time performance"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "LAN moved to departure gate five minutes before scheduled Board Time from downstairs shuttle bus to plane, to a walk on gate to plane."
Cons: "Original schedule pulled in one day due to Hurricane Irma cancellation/rebook from MIA to SCL. LAN wanted $280US to change ticket. I paid $160US for ticket originally. No sympathy from LAN for hurricane impacted travelors. Extremely poor customer relations!!"
Pros: "It was comfy"
Cons: "When I got to Miami, I wasn't assisted to the next gate"
Pros: "Good food, friendly staff, in flight entertainment, flight on time."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful. The flight was smooth and quiet."
Cons: "The cabin has garbage and it was dirty."
Cons: "The space"
Cons: "I received a confirmation email and flight information but was unable to check into my flight upon arrival and was not in their system for the flight. Very upsetting and unreliable."
Cons: "Seat space,"
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Pros: "Despite having a high "Sapphire" status with this One World Partner and being promised "preferente" seats by the airline when I reserved seats months ago, I was unable to view the seats or check in online. Both their App and their online system were down and unavailable. We were never able to view our actual seats online. The "preferred seats" my group on 5 could not have been worse!! We were seated consistently in row 11 or the very last row of the aircraft immediately in front of the lavatory, where the seats do not recline at all and where you hear and smell the bathroom for the entire flight.. There was NO space to breathe in our seats. I have traveled on dozens of airlines and this experience and these seats were the WORST! After this happened once, I specifically asked to insure that it would not happen again and was told that seats on my next flights were good but they were the same horrible seats. Part of our itinerary was on LAN and part was on TAM, who have now combined into 1 airline, but still operate on separate systems. So LAN customer service could not see the seats for TAM flights and vice versa. Their online system reflected a changed time for our return flight from 145pm to 250pm from Rio. We verified it 3 times (even though we could not check in or view our seats because of "technical difficulties" we could see the new departure tie, and the change was confirmed by our Sheraton concierge, but when we arrived to the airport they informed us that we had arrived to late for our 145pm flight! We showed them the app that showed our flight was changed to 250pm and they could not explain the problem. We were delayed 4 hours and arrived too late for dinner in Santiago. The final 4 hour flight at 4am flight from Santiago to Lima was torture. The seat in front was literally 6 inches in front of my face when they reclined and I could not recline. It was absolute TORTURE! Avoid this airline! To add the agony, they have lost my bag and do not know where it is!"
Cons: "HORRIBLE seats with NO space and no Recline as a "preferred" clients. Impossible and inaccurate online App and check in process that was always unavailable. Unfriendly and poor customer service at check in, and inaccurate information (being told that we had good preferred seats, for example) Lost luggage still pending."
Cons: "One of my bags was damaged on the direct flight from Santiago to Miami. It looked like it had been dragged down the runway. I showed this to Latan representative Angel Pupulin in Miami who's first statement was, "Latan is not responsible." He was rude and initially refused to even fill out a damaged bag report. I explained that I would call my credit card company and put a non-authorization on $2500 worth of tickets. He continued to speak to me in Spanish although I told him, " No habla Espanol." He spoke English but was trying to jerk me around in every way possible. This is not going to be ignored! One employee screwed up all the positives of multiple flights with Latan. I will avoid flying Latan in the future and will not recommend Latan to others."
Pros: "Flying on a Boing 787 is wonderful. The overall service from Latam is top quality; the crew was welcoming and very attentive. Food could be improved, specially offering vegetarian alternative for all of the food services. The movie selection could be improved (in variety and vintage). Music selection was very good for my taste."
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seats on line in advance, which created a stressful situation when at check-in we found that my wife and I were not seated together. Fortunately for the first leg of the trip (Santiago-Lima) there was an empty seat by her and I took it; and for the second leg (Lima-Los Angeles) the passenger next to her was upgraded on the last minute and left his seat for me. Latam has great service, but must let customers choose their seats or guarantee assigning adjacent seats to passengers traveling together, The process for servicing of the plane during the stop-over in Lima could be improved. I know it is hard to do minor cleaning, tidy-up, and replacement of pillows & blankets while many passengers remain on board, but at least there should be an announcement describing what the passengers are to expect during the stop-over."
Pros: "Once again, I was impressed with the food and the service. The flight crew was very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My entertainment center didn't have audio for one of the movies so I had to use closed caption to read what the characters were saying. I had some issues trying to get the movie to play because the screen froze for a moment."
Pros: "Fabulous staff"
Cons: "Long boarding times waiting too much"
Pros: "Staff was nice but still in an airplane not moving"
Cons: "Waiting and no contact as no cell phone or internet conection to inform hotel you are not going to arrive in time to use their room"
Cons: "To short connection"
Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
Pros: "The movie choices are endless!"
Cons: "I wish I was told about the Lan app to download before we took off"
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "The schedule"
Cons: "The stop in Lima"

With all the cancellations I've heard about in the news lately, surprised that our trip went off without a hitch! We were early even! Way to go United 👏👏👏

The seats are so painful. No recognition of star alliance gold member

Cons: "On board Mask enforcement - was not done. The video controller buttons were on the arm rest. This presented a challenge to actually USE the arm rest for myself and my seat mates - we were constantly and inadvertently turning the monitor on."
Pros: "The Free glass of wine was a very nice surprise."
Cons: "Seat was too narrow. Flight delayed 4 hours."
Pros: "The whole experience was fine, as expected for today’s standard."
Cons: "Boarding would be better if the window seats go first, followed by middle seats then aisle seats."
Pros: "Seats were the most uncomfortable I've experienced in years"
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "We were delayed initially because our jet was given to a different flight which had been delayed due to mechanical problems. Then our incoming flight was first from San Diego, then Los Angeles. The arrival was delayed several times. Then our boarding was delayed several times. By the time we we in the air, we were even later. The flight was so turbulent, there was no food or beverage service, which isn't important anyway since that has become a token gesture by airlines anyway. . If this was an isolated incident, I could ignore it but it seems that this almost always happens when I fly United."
Pros: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"
Cons: "Why is United charging for inflight tv and movies? Ridiculous"
Pros: "The movie selection was great. I did start to feel quite ill as we were taxiing to the gate and the attendant was kind enough to open the restroom door"
Cons: "This flight was operated by United ugh!, we didn’t get the extra leg room seats we requested. The flight attendants were not very helpful"
Pros: "I liked the United entertainment movies option. Full can of soda for free."
Cons: "Only pretzels. Would prefer additional options - on other flights they offer peanuts or cookie. When you have to use your own device to watch the entertainment, you use battery. If battery dies before movie ends, too bad. In today’s cell phone world it would be nice to at least have USB charging available- cheaper than inflight screens!"
Pros: "I paid for extra space and it satisfy my needs."
Cons: "The personnel service during the flight was mediocre. In my opinion they don’t know what is customer satisfaction. They have to show that they like what they do with a simple smile. They are not doing the customer a favor . That is their job a good customer satisfaction"
Pros: "A flight attendant went out of her way to bring my wife some nuts from first class, since she said she missed having the packages of nuts and pretzels in economy."
Cons: "The stand-by for business class upgrade process is anything but clear."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence due to weather"
Cons: "Boarded in, then boarded out. Told aircraft was not inspected then delayed by ~2 hours due to bolts loose in a wing plate despite brand new aircraft"
Pros: "Getting back to the UK"
Cons: "When booking with Lufthansa I don't then expect to be on a united airlines flight Terrible customer service and substandard old uncomfortable aircraft"
Pros: "Felt a bit cramped but otherwise was a good flight. Left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped but still more legroom than most flights in economy. So that’s a plus."
Pros: "Was actually not delayed and arrived 1 hour early! Wow!"
Cons: "Flying coach on United isn't the greatest experience. Boring food and very little water, less leg room"
Cons: "My seat had garbage on the seat, on the floor and in the front pocket"
Pros: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
Pros: "I liked that the captain communicated with the passengers about delays and the reasons for the delays over the intercom."
Cons: "I feel that I was treated by the employees at the boarding desk and by the customer service attendants as if I were garbage!!!! I was attempting to purchase an upgrade in my seating to avoid very uncomfortable swelling on my right ankle and other personal reasons. As I inquired with the man at the boarding gate about purchasing the upgrade I was told that there were none available. So I pulled out my tablet with the united airlines app and showed him the image of the empty business class seat that I would like to purchase on the seating map available in the app. He told me that he had no option on his computer screen to sell me the seat. I asked him where could I go or who could I ask to get the seat. This back and forth continued for some time where he kept saying he could not sell me the seat but I would then say, “I understand that, but do you know who can or where I can go to find someone who knows where I can buy an upgrade?” The attendant got VERY VERY upset that I was even ASKING. As if I were asking for some OUTRAGEOUS request!! I asked to speak with the manager several times. He continued by ignoring me and just saying NO! Finally he pointed to some lady beside him. I don't know if she was the manager or not, but she was on the phone and barely gave ten seconds of a glance to the situation. He asked me"Are you gonna go or not?" I could tell that he cared absolutely nothing about me or my request and was extremely dismissive in asking me this. Finally, he dismissively told me to ask the flight attendant. I could tell that this young man would be of no further help AT ALL, so I gave my ticket, went on board and thought to just try and ask a flight attendant. Right before I went to give my ticket to the man who was taking tickets, I heard the boarding gate man walk away mumbling how ANNOYING I was in Chinese. I know this because I SPEAK Chinese. This is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!! I continued to go on board hoping the flight attendants might actually have some information. When I asked, who I thought was the flight attendant, about purchasing a seat, it turns out that she was the customer service agent on the flight, she gave no effort to even try to hear what I was communicating to her. I know about communication and as a public speaking instructor, I know how to listen and to speak. She continued to raise her voice and talk over me, although I remained very calm and tried talking to her logically. I tried to communicate to her that I was attempting to purchase one of the empty business class seats that I had seen were empty. I checked the seating of the flight from the united airlines app before I had even boarded the plane. The lady continued to be very rude and uncaring. She talked over me, did not listen, her responses did not make sense, she very loudly kept asking me " CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??" as if I was a child or as if I was confrontational when I absolutely was not. I noticed I had been trying to communicate for a while.wordlimit"
Pros: "Attentive stewards"
Pros: "Agent at check-in was very, very helpful and accomadating"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional. The flight also arrived early."
Cons: "If you're going to offer personal device entertainment, you need to offer power outlets. How is that not common sense?"
Pros: "On time Friendly staffs"
Pros: "Flights were OK"
Cons: "Due to the more than two hours held up in customs and immigration I missed my connection to Redding. Plus it took me half an hour to get to the domestic gate. So you booked me on flights where I needed a minimum of 3 hours between flights and you only allowed me two. I spent a freezing night at the gate blasted by a/c and vitriolic CNN in extreme discomfort waiting for my early morning flight. (Security ziplocked my bag and I was unable to access a sweater). Nightmare!"
Cons: "After boarding onto the aircraft, I asked a flight attendant if I could move from a middle seat and into a row with no occupied personnel. He said I couldn't because personnel were still boarding, and I promise you that there was only 3 people behind me in line, none of which sat in that row. I figured he would tell me I could move after the remaining 3 personnel boarded, but he did not and I sat uncomfortably that entire flight."
Pros: "on time boarding arrived early, crew was wonderful"
Pros: "The bathroom was exceptionally clean. Staff seemed very helpful to people for whom there was no room for their bags. Pilots a lovely smooth landing."
Cons: "I expected economy plus to be comparable to other 'pluses.' It isn't - it is more what I expect regular economy to be. Also suitcases had not been monitored for over-size. There were more than a few taking up most of a storage bin each. Also there was an hour delay for mechanical repair."
Cons: "I understand the weather issue that occurred in ORD, but not letting the passengers know what was going on, except for delay, delay, delay was unacceptable, even after the weather calmed down. I will never fly United, thru ORD again"
Pros: "It was quick to checkin but considering we were one of the few flights it should have been that way."
Cons: "No snacks were given to my kids cuz they were sleeping, the plane was freezing took a lil while until someone finally listened to the complaints and turned the heat up. No one was able to give us direction at San Juan airport all information desk were closed. It was a very stressful frustrating time at the airport. We were flying with 2 young kids at 2am and there was no body there to help, anyone we asked question we were given the wrong info not pleased one bit."
Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded"
Pros: "Forced me to check my bag and now it's broken"
Cons: "Horrible attitude by staff at the baggage service desk"
Pros: "That was okay. Crew was nice. Food bad"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They canceled my flight without asking me or notifying me. I wad left stranded at the airport when I showed up 1.5h before takeoff to find thru cancelled my ticket. I was forced to buy a very expensive last minute ticket with another airline and got home very late. I am still in disbelief"
Cons: "United operated the ROR-GUM. Philippine Airlines operated the GUM to MNL segment. Checked baggage could not be transferred in GUM. Checked bags had to be picked upnin baggage claim and rechecked with PR. Should not have been listed as a joint fare."
Pros: "Kind flight attendants and quick early arriving flight"
Cons: "Nothing, everything was food"
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "We were real late leaving and we were never notified as to why or that the flight would be late. We never received an apology for the inconvenience. We had no in service flight entertainment, very disappointing."
Cons: "Horrible airline"
Pros: "Attendant attitude"
Cons: "Noise in the cabin. Food was only two options, none vegetarian. Bathrooms locked all the time."
Pros: "Enjoyed the extra leg room, choice in movies, how smooth the flight was."
Cons: "The food was ok, the stewardess wasn't very friendly, it was like I was inconveniencing her, although I never asked for anything extra and always said please and thank you."
Pros: "United doesn't care about customers, It was nothing to like about this flight over four hours late, the flight went to it's destination and came back, seems like every other United flight was canceled, Dora huge line about 2 to 3 hours long to get you an agent, there were no hotels available, slept in the airport"
Cons: "Flight over four hours late, had to sleep in the airport on the chairs, because there was no hotels left, United didn't offer anything, I'm really displeased with them"
Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"
Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
Pros: "the nice crew"
Cons: "the Economy Plus was not that great ,I was in the center seat .I was unconfortable."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
