Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Loved it"
Cons: "Sit was a little tight"
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hout"
Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I upgraded to business class and am so happy I did for the 16 hour flight."
Pros: "Crew and food."
Cons: "Lights did not work, so diner was guessing whats was in the tray"
Cons: "Handling flight delay"
Pros: "Liked comfort and srvice"
Cons: "Doha to Lahore flight plane was a bit older than Edinburgh was new and exciting"
Pros: "Just as I thought it could not get any better The service was perfect. The privacy was superb and the comfort allowed me to sleep for a good while."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."
Pros: "Everything really.They run the airline very smoothly and professionally from boarding to disembarking."
Cons: "They tempt you with so much food lol although some of the food wasnt too appealing.toilets very clean and seemed to stay that way throughout long 17hr flight.good leg room for a long legged guy like me.felt sorry for lady with two young children.She could have been allocated better seats."
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Pros: "Ground crew was especially helpful to my mother who could not speak English or Arabic, and had never flown before. She also had difficulty walking, so everyone assisted her in the airport and during her long connection in Doha."
Pros: "The service and food."
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."
Cons: "My personal headphones (Beats) couldn’t be used in the headphone socket which was a bummer. 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!"
Pros: "Flight service"
Cons: "I used Qatar airways 3 times so far. In the last flight, were a connection has 8 hours between 2 flights, they deny me to stay in a hotel. The last 2 flights which have exactly the same schedule, I used the hotel in that 8 hours between the 2 flights. I asked why, they told me that my ticket is not eligible to the hotel, although, I bought the last two times from Kayak, with almost same price. My first flight with Qatar Airways was on July 2017. My second flight with Qatar Airways was on August 2017. My third flight with Qatar Airways was on Jan 208."
Cons: "No proper communication and very poor management. I was on an emergency and no one bothered to listen and all the passengers were sent . The customer care numbers didn't work as they operate between 8-5 !! No one to reach to .. really bad experience. Don't suggest this aircraft for folks who needs to travel urgently !"
Cons: "Flight delay by 4 hours!!"
Pros: "Flight attendants very nice"
Cons: "Boarding at JFK. PHONEY wheel chair users. Saw a woman with one leg who.REALLY needed one tough it out while others were just lazy. I saw them walking after wards. They just don't want to wait in.line. Handicapped should have wheelchairs but once they have them they should wait like everyone.else"

Pros: "There were a lot if security checks but the boarding crew was very helpful and let me check in a bag at rhe last minute with duty free shopping items that i would not have been able to carry with me on-board the airplane."

Pros: "The lack of passengers on this flight gave me an amazing amount of room. Really makes the flights enjoyable when I can spread out."
Cons: "The food could use some work. The quantities are perfect. But the quality is definitely lacking"
Cons: "The flight from Sao Paulo to Doha was canceled which delayed our travel by 24 hrs. With the baggage being mis-labeled from Rio we almost lost our bags. the crew was not communicative and the entire experience terribly stressful."
Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."
Pros: "Polite staff keen to help"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Pros: "Crew are great and entertainment options are good."

Pros: "Good service from cabin crew"
Cons: "Seat is quite small compared to other flight"
Pros: "Could have done without the awful sexist ads they play on in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Qatar is quite possibly the best airline in the world, especially on its long haul flights. It is heads above the other two major Persian Gulf airlines. All the employees with whom I dealt were excellent and customer-oriented. The planes between Doha and London were new, had more space than older planes and had an excellent selection of movies and TV shows. I ordered special meals on all the flights, and I was very satisfied. I have been a fan of Qatar Airways since I flew it to Australia in 2011. It continues to do a superb job, even in Economy."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Cons: "On the second leg, my first choice option was not available. Instead I was offered what appeared to be a lurid pink yogurt, coupled with fluorescent orange 'juice', together with the Indian vegetarian option. The accompanying 'muffin' appeared to consist of the following ingredients: flour, oil. Suffers from the "African flight's don't matter" syndrome when it comes to level of staff and entertainment. I was expecting better from Qatar - back to Emirates I go!"
Pros: "One of the best flights in the past 5 years! 5 gold star service!"
Cons: "Wonderful friendly and helpful crew and check in staff. Excellent food and service. On time departure and arrival. Help with bags during the check in process."
Pros: "New plane. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Kayak/priceline re-booked my flight for my sister and I from SAA to BA, but failed to completely reissue us tickets. When we checked in for the flight, we had no ticket for the first leg of the flight, but we had tickets for the remaining flights. We immediately called to fix this problem, but due to slow customer service, we weren't issued tickets in time and the flight left without us. We missed all remaining connecting flights and were forced to buy New tickets. Now we have to work with kayak/priceline to get all my money back due to their error. We came back a day later than expected and missed going back to work."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Poor management didn't provide a hotel for layovers more than 12 hrs"
Cons: "No good movies on the flight. The crew hardly interacts. The food sucks and they served sausage to me even though I was a vegetarian and they said they didn't have anything else. The headrest kept falling off ."
Cons: "The crew has no control over passengers. Specifically, it is the cabin supervisors responsibility to maintain order on the flight. Everyone before boarding, during boarding and during the flight kept sitting in incorrect seats, no boarding passes checked. Felt like a zoo on the airline. Very disappointed."
Pros: "The entertainment was great."
Pros: "Lots of disruptive kids, one of the ethnically chinese (sorry didn't catch her name) was very attentive and supportive of parents trying to keep their kids happy on a twelve hour flight."

Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."

Not having a Visa kept me.from entering the immigration and security wont let me in without a boarding pass. security supervisor had to contact Emirates ground staff who escorted me."
Pros: "In general, everything as expected, some crew members were even extra nice."
Cons: "When checking in, they were quite slow and they didn't seem like they wanted to be helpful. Some crew members were not as helpful as when we were going to Brazil, and even the way they communicated the rules was not always very nice, but not rude either."
Pros: "The entertainment system was excellent and the free WiFi was good. The food was good, it was a bit more than expected as were the numerous beverages. The service was excellent."

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: "For a 15 hour flight the crew made it comfortable"
Cons: "The restrooms were non functional by the end of the flight"
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: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."

Loved the goodies for the kids, little blanket and scotch pad."

Cons: "To drop the bag was very messy"
Cons: "the cabin and seats are old and seems dirty"
Pros: "Neat, polite and orderly. Great food!"
Cons: "Not much."
Cons: "Strange use of curtains upfront during flight. I was asked to check my carryon for free to help out with boarding, but then had to wait longer to get the bag in baggage claim. It was the last bag of my checked bags to show up. Checked carryon bags should have a higher priority to return."

Pros: "They were very kind!"
Cons: "Probably the space we need more room, so we could stretch our legs and be more comfy!"
Cons: "I've flown a lot of different business class flights in my time and these are the narrowest I've ever seen. I am not overweight but I felt very restricted in these seats. Add to the narrow seats is the design of the seat and armrests themselves and you don't have much space at all. No way I was going to be able to work on my laptop in this LATAM business class seat."

Electronic check in system was not working twice, perhaps due to international minors, had to wait in line in order to check in. The boarding pass for our connection from Rio to Miami was not given to us in Sao Paulo when we had to manually check in. As a result, we had to exit the secured area in Rio to go check in manually again for our connection and then go through security and customs again."
Cons: "Flight delayed well over an hour, Airport stuff unhelpful, Very below average."
Cons: "Three gate changes, the flight was delayed and the luggage was left outside in the rain. Recommend waterproofing when flying with Latam."

Cons: "We fly during lunch time and were only serviced a snack. Something more substantial would have been in order."

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.

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).

Cons: "Standing too long before boarding at 2am!"
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Cons: "The flight at first had a 3 HOUR delay do to a "mechanical breakdown". We were told that they were going to bring another airplane from Rio de Janeiro. After the 3 hours passed they were only announcing in Portuguese to board the original plane. They never changed planes or provided a clear explanation to the passengers. Many of us refused to board. This was one of the worse experiences I have ever had. The staff was disrespectful and would not help us. We ended up taking another flight until the following night!!"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "You could have not cancelled my flight after rebooking a connection"

Customs agents wanted us to have our landing cards filled out before we got there but the crew on flight didn’t give passengers landing cards to fill out prior to landing and customs didn’t even have pens for us to fill our our forms. Super unhelpful and rude. Then our flight was delayed two hours which caused us to miss the train we needed out of the airport to West Jesmond. Thus forcing us to take a cab that was horrifically expensive. Super bummed on heathrow and British airlines. Would not travel through heathrow again."
Pros: "Price and prompt and timely boarding."
Cons: "Old airplane, old entertainment system, below average food on the LHR-IAH leg and charging for food and drinks for the IST-LHR leg which is over 3 hrs."
Cons: "No power plugs/usb ports. Very small, poor quality screen. Not much bigger than my iPhone."
Pros: "On time good flight"
Pros: "Plane not full, comfort, choice of entertainment. On time leaving and arriving."
Cons: "Unable to check in online. Message said not approved to enter US as yet. Called airline and was reassured but still unclear and anxious about this unusual message. Boarding time was extended."
Pros: "This flight is exactly what you’d expect it to be- no frills, just a cheap way to get around! Coffe is 30 pnc so come pr prepared!"
Cons: "They were late by 2 hrs"
Cons: "This is by far the worst business class experience ever. Really bad. Never seen business seat so tight. 2x4x2 configuration in business is just not acceptable."
Cons: "There was a problem in the pilot flying from London to Riyadh and did not go to us tomorrow, I do not know is the reason you (KAYAK) or they are this problem is very large and I am not satisfied with this service"
Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "Stop trying to be a budget airline and invest in your customers rather than shareholders. Need better seats, free meals on 4+ hour flights, and entertainment. Also, the plane was old and definitely needed interior work (call buttons and lights were constantly flashing and ringing for the last 30 minutes of the flight)."
Pros: "Really friendly nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort OK but person in front had seat back all the time"
Pros: "Got there safely"
Cons: "Had to pay any food or drink. Just cheap"
Pros: "Ticket agent was courteous, helpful, set up the positive vibes for our flight."
Cons: "Our experience was great,"
Pros: "Flight was good, delayed by 25minutes though,"
Pros: "Crew was very courteous. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Did not get the seat I paid $67 for. The seat had a clump like an old fashioned mattress spring. Lucky I had the pillow! Impossible legroom esp. when the seat in front was lowered. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "- price - crew"
Cons: "- no USB - tiny screens - poor video quality - crappy food"
Pros: "Planes were new or well maintained."
Cons: "Confirmed seat selection does not actually mean confirmed. BA changed our seats without notice and stuck us in the back of the plane. There was no real effort to address the unexpected change. It also took the entirety of the 3 hour flight for the service cart to make it to the back of the plane. This was after a 2 hour delay during which they provided only sporadic updates. Overall, quite a poor experience which would make me hesitate to fly BA again given a choice of comparable airlines."
Pros: "Crew were great."
Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"
Pros: "I like that they managed to squeeze the seats in an A380 jumbo jets to make it feel like the space of a domestic carrier plane."
Cons: "Seat is small, no food menu on a 12-hour long haul flight from SIN to London. Only 1 available meal type: bland tasting "sea bass" soaked in tomato sauce. The air crew spent most of their time sitting in the back - zero effort in service - not once did they make rounds with cups of water/juice. In between meals, I request for some snacks and they said they don't carry any snacks at all - onboard a 12-hour long flight. I asked to BUY some Malteser chocolate and pringles, and the air crew exclaim "ohhhh but it's on the upper deck, I would have to climb up to get some." Here how about some bread rolls and butter. They offered me stale bread from the previous meal. I am their One World Partners SAPPHIRE Member. I shudder to think how they would treat their standard economy class passengers."
Pros: "I like the way they treat people. Each crew member was friendly and worked very hard to please everyone"
Cons: "I have no negative comments."
Pros: "Because of the cabin crew strike the old biddies pushing the trolleys were smart enough to give the passengers double the quota of wine to keep us quiet so we didn't mind the slow food service. I had an excellent flight sleeping thru half of it."
Cons: "The audio provided by the ear buds provided produced very poor results, probably causes long term hearing loss."
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
Pros: "Flight crew is the most helpful and genuine I've experienced of all carriers. I've had bad experiences with Lufthansa, United, American, and Delta. Everything we asked of BA was taken care of quickly and they truly seemed to care more. They are especially attentive to children. The A320 storage space overhead is huge and seemed to have room to spare with a fully booked flight."
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable for people 6 foot tall and above. Why can't they make a seat that adjusts for taller people."
Pros: "I had left my walking stick somewhere at the airport, couldn't find it and had given it up for lost. What a surprise, once I was seated on plane, to hear an announcement for the traveler who had left a 'walking stick'; I told the nearest steward, and he got it for me - BA rocks! Overall, the air crew were so professional, (unlike certain things happening on other airlines at the moment), and I was very happy, even with my ovo lacto veg meal, (it really was tasty)."
Cons: "Nor too many good movies to choose from. I get it , row number 47, don't expect any 1st class comfort, but still, i was glad to land in Denver. Started to run out of sitting positions that didn't hurt."
Pros: "Nothing went wrong, everything on time"
Cons: "Mediocre service, not what you expect from a premier carrier, I have not flown BA in many years and my how the stands have slipped. Economy was sub par with little to no room, not comfortable for a 7 hour flight."
Pros: "Quick flight. Nice crew"
Cons: "The fact that there was no free food and drink on the flight."
Pros: "Generally British Airways provides great service but I think the labor issues had a impact on the crew's ability to smile."
Pros: "This was a very empty flight. I heard there were around 150 open seats. It gave me nearly the entire back of the plan. The staff was attentive and friendly. The plane had a good selection of movies. The meal was pretty good for economy and the drinks were available whenever I wanted them. It was easy getting on board and deplaning in Boston. Good experience!"
Cons: "The plane (747) was a bit old, so the entertainment screens are quite dated. The comfort was good, but just a LITTLE more room in economy would have been great if the flight had been full."
Pros: "food and video entertainment"
Cons: "mysterious baggage problem that was not adequately explained by Captain. Staff were choatic in supposedly checking bags to passengers, but only in an erratic fashion. As a result flight was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "Amount of entertainment was good"
Cons: "Audio jacks always seem to have issues"
Cons: "How come there is no entertainment system? This is a 5 hour flight"
Pros: "Staff was polite."
Cons: "The next flight was delayed too. Insult to injury, our luggage was left behind in London (LHR). It arrived 24 hours later. Will never take BA again. It isn't there fault. LHR is a mess. The return flight was equally nasty with delayed flights and lost luggage. Avoid LHR."
Pros: "There were delays beyond the pilot or crews control and they handled the situation in a very courteous and respectful way, much appreciated."
Pros: "All great in Biz. class."
Pros: "Business class amenities"
Cons: "Luggage drop off taking over 45 minutes (for Business Class) was not acceptable."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and quick. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Suitcase arrived brokken off the belt. If was in good shape when checked in at Chicago for the last leg of a 17 flight round the world trip. Typical to have baggage handled very poorly in US."
Cons: "Crew was rude. The premium plus cabin was not worth the extra cost. No real change in service just a little more room."
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Nothing except the movie selections and wine."
Cons: "Better seating... seats are small and crampy. The flight attendants were not friendly and attentive. I pressed the call button 3 times within an hour to receive headphones and they never came. My neighbor let me borrow hers. The food was terrible. Not many vegan options."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "It was an older airplane. For a long flight from Montreal to San Francisco, a plane with more room would be more humane. People were lined up for the bathrooms most of the trip since could not use the small first class bathroom. If one wanted a meal, it was one you had to pay for. Broken monitor"
Pros: "The crew was great and very helpful. They properly stowed a box of crab legs someone had on the flight that wouldn’t fit in the overhead."
Cons: "You gotta stop treating economy travelers like 2nd class citizens. The split level check-in at Newark is ridiculous with premium up top and easy to get to where there’s literally 2-3 customers. Versus economy where you need to take an elevator & then wait. no check on policy for economy is silly too"
Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful"
Cons: "The food was very average"
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."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "I just wanted to seat with my husband but it was not possible."
Pros: "The flight itself was as good as expected: Attentive crew and competent pilot, good enough food, comfortable enough (for coach) seats, and clean airplane. The seats could be made to recline a bit more but nobody seems to be doing it for coach class."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 30 minutes causing me to lose the connecting flight home by about 5 minutes There was no effort from United to help me to get the second flight on time or from the crew on that one to delay it enough for me to arrive. They suggested I waited 9 hours for the next available flight or to get one by AA in Reagan Airport in 3 hours. They told me that transportation to that airport would not be reimbursed and would cost between 20 and 40 dollars. I didn't know the airports were that far apart and the one-hour taxi drive cost me 80 dollars. From Sao Paulo to Washington, things went as well as expected. Once landed everything was horrible."
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."
Cons: "Cabin too cold"
Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"
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: "Lost my baggage at united, better not cooperate with them"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Food OK but to be expected. Entertainment good as per usual on United."
Cons: "My least favorite thing about flying to Dulles is getting on those ridiculous people movers to go to customs and immigration s. Creates a larger cluster of people at immigration and something else I have to wait on. Also - why is GRU already using buses for boarding 787s? The new terminal just opened three years ago-- missed opportunity."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable chairs"
Pros: "Both our flight where on time and smooth as can be. Stuff was super friendly."
Cons: "Nothen bad to say..."
Cons: "After waiting almost an hour at the Luthansa check in line, I was told that I had to check in under the United counter -- even though the ticket was sold by Lufthansa. The documentation sent with the ticket needs to make this clearer so that such a frustrating experience is not repeated."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No blanket"
Cons: "Late start"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "Boarding, crew, and also the flight were smooth and pleasant"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work"
Pros: "Always raved about my experience. This time was not impressed. The people who initially took our bags were great, there after... not good."
Cons: "Arrived at 0750, ahead of schedule and waited until 0915 to get off the plane due to an error with the gate and then a malfunction of equipment. Now waiting for our baggage for 40 min. still nothing. Disappointing start to an already short vacay."
Pros: "I liked that the attendant suggested that anyone who wished, could move to unsold seats! Nice!"
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Pros: "STROOPWAFELS!! Waffle cookies was an delicious treat on board. United should offer this snack on all routes. Chairs were comfy on this type of airplane for economy."
Cons: "Middle seat. Oh well"
Pros: "Delayed 3hrs due to awaiting the aircraft. Was given the option to change flights with no more flights to HNL tonight"
Cons: "There was only one hour to get off the plane, wait forever for your bag, go through customs and run to the next flight. Several people missed it. Bad connection timing. One hour is not enough when coming off an international flight"
Pros: "There were maybe two of the flight attendants. Who weren't rude. The rest well, I guess didn't like there jobs? I lost all my money for my first flight, because i was over 4 hours late. When i purchased a ticket from cheapo air, the person helping me was so nice. Unlike United airlines, or Viama. When i missed my flight that i paid $1,300.00, United said they'd give me another ticket for $4,000? This was a one time offer to redeem my $1,300 Viama said $10,500? I will only buy my tickets from cheapo air from now on."
Cons: "The flight attendants are very snotty, 2 out of the 18 I encountered were polite. The rest acted like they hated their jobs, and all the passengers. When you travel to another country they should have at least one person who speaks English. Can't really say much for the food, essentially requesting a vegetarian meal was out of the question, so i just starve. Drink some watered down booze, take a few dramamine and sleep. The layovers are ridiculous. 14 hours, 8 hours 4 hours? Good thing God made Beer and pizza."
Pros: "The flight left on time, was uneventful, and arrived early."
Cons: "There was no USB or in flight entertainment"
Pros: "The cookie was wonderful . I was shaped like a waffle & had caramel inside. The package even instructed how to warm it up over the top of my coffee cup. Also, all the United personnel were great!"
Cons: "Our flight departure was delayed from Tampa to Chicago cause they switched planes. Thank God I didn't miss my connection flight."
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "Very kind and curtious flight attendants to and from my destinations. Great service! Wouldn't hesitate to plan future flights with United again."
Cons: "I had no complaints or dislikes."
Pros: "Aircraft with old decoration. Could not see a single smile from the crew."
Pros: "I had an empty row."
Cons: "Waiting for boarding an extra 30mins. Waiting for departure an extra 30mins. All after having my gates switched, and walking accros the concourse just to get to it."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The screen was frozen the whole flight."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic ! My daughter was anxious during some unexpected turbulence and she was very supportive . Movies and entertainment were good . Food , acceptable."
Cons: "The space allotted per person is ridiculous. And I upgraded to extra leg room ... What extra legroom ??"
Cons: "..there was a very drunk passenger on the flight. He spilled wine all over another customer. The flight crew kept serving him more alcohol even though he could barely stand with out falling down. Unfortunately, he would shut up the whole trip, speaking in a very loud voice to his seat mate who was clearly not interested in the conversation."
