Excellent.

Pilot gave timely updates for delays that were outside of their control. Flight attendants did not seem eager to engage and provide friendly service to passengers

seat in front of me was angled back more then other seats.. was very uncomfortable, tight fit .

Late. Take off. Due to having no crew to fly. Food dry and old. In first class. Poor service. Crew just sat in galley talking

Entertainment was very plentiful, staff were courteous. Seating was HORRIBLE. That is the most cramped I’ve ever been on any flight …Jet Blue and Spirit included. Very uncomfortable for a six hour trip.

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Both the to and return flights, I was never able to get their entertainment to work on my iPhone. The website fails to load in the browser even though I’m on their in flight WiFi and following instructions specifically"
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Pros: "Crew were good"
Cons: "Way late. This flight has been over 45 minutes late 1/4 of the time in the last 60 days. Today was the 1 in 3 days."
Cons: "very cramped very old plane with no wifi. UPGRADE YOUR FLEET!!!"
Cons: "A bit of food would have been nice on a 5 1/2 hour flight!"
Cons: "Missed the flight due to poor staff and a delayed landing from my crossover. Given how childish the ground staff were being, I can only assume the flight staff wouldn't be much better."
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."
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Pros: "I was not expecting the ample leg room and arm space. I was actually comfortable. It made such a huge difference in my day. The crew members were great and it was a pretty chill experience, which is not how I can describe any other flight in recent memory."
Cons: "The entertainment was just snippets from NBC shows that I’m not interested in. It was the same presentation on both legs of my trip, so even if I had been interested initially, I would have gotten bored the second time around."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "I got better snacks in kindergarten"
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: "Nice staff. Seats are comfy."
Cons: "A lot of pushy people. I think it always happens on the flights back from vacation destinations, people are burnt out and want to get home. The American airlines staff were fine, though."
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
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: "Very nice crew Very smooth flight On time!"
Cons: "They didn’t have coffee or tea, but them announced that in the beginning. No WiFi. Also announced."
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendants going down the middle aisle and bumping me as I had an aisle seat."
Pros: "The location of the seat with "leg room" was next to the bathroom."
Cons: "The location of the upgraded seat with "leg room" was only half way open to leg room due to the exit door inconvenience"
Cons: "Boarded the plane and had to wait on the runway for almost 3 hours after being delayed at the gate. Absolutely horrible with no compensation for our time whatsoever."
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Pros: "I fell asleep and missed dinner. When I woke up one of the stuff came up to me and asked me if I would like to eat something and went especially for me and got me the the dinner portion. Although we had a delay I was informed promptly and the staff apologized for my inconvenience. The airline took responsibility and did not blame the delay on other factors. Thanks for being honest"
Pros: "Clean, quiet, nice staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Cons: "Not very helpful in rebooking"
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The plane was freezing, then it was boiling hot. There was no happy medium. Never had this issue on a plane. The crew would not shut up. They talked endlessly on the speakers, which were blown out and had some sort of buzzing feedback which made listening unbearable. I hated every minute of this flight and was so glad to be off the plane."
Pros: "Left Venice on time and arrived in Philadelphia on time. Selection of free movies was good."
Cons: "Food is so awful I wouldn't' feed it to a pig. Did not offer anything other than coffee, tea or water to drink during the 8+ hour flight after the first offering of complementary wine or soda. Seats are cramped as always on US airlines. I would not like to be an overweight person jammed into these seats for so many hours."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Seats far too close together even for cosch"

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.

Delays and lack of communication

Pros: "Quick and easy. Just a 35 minute flight. Wish they could all be like that."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "It was a flight, it was decent."
Pros: "Crew was very good and accodating"
Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "Great crew"
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: "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: "We had a two hour delay due to mechanical issues. Long time to fix it,"
Cons: "United made me check my carry-on and would not transfer , so I had to wait for it and missed my connecting flight. Then I rebooked on a later flight which was cancelled due to weather. So needless to say I did not get to Ottawa and had to purchase a hotel room in Newark. United is telling me I may not get on another flight until tomorrow night. I am very disappointed."
Cons: "Flight left 8 hours late because they couldn’t find a tire."
Pros: "Thankful for infight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "United flight attendants (not former continental) really need attitude overhauls. Customer Service is your job, stop acting as though assisting passengers is an inconvenience to you."
Pros: "On time, smooth and lots of cabin space for my carried on."
Cons: "United should have allowed the super-economy ticket holder to check in online get my boarding pass especially I didn’t have any bag to check in. I was almost late for my plane because counter assistance is needed in my case, while there was no counter for NO-bag check-in. The kiosk rejected my check-in as well as online check-in. It was confusing and frustrating; I felt like the United Airline did that on purpose to deter the super-economy ticket buyer. Please be aware of time to take to check in with NO BAG with Super-Economy ticket at EWR."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No entertainment and meals being served in the row ahead of our seats."
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"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 4 hours, should have given us miles or a voucher"
Pros: "poor service, rude flight attendants, no leg room, dirty plane..."
Cons: "poor service, rude flight attendants, no leg room, dirty plane..."
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: "The seat next to me was empty which made the whole long flight more bearable."
Cons: "Typical United service, without any bells or whistles."
Cons: "Baggage delayed"
Pros: "Everyone was quite friendlly and personable, especially our flight attendants."
Cons: "It was hard to hear the captain over the speaker. The inflight entertainment was expensive"
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled rerouted with Delta"
Pros: "There is no food essentially. No entertainment unless you have your own electronic hand-held device."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "On time from Checking In and Departure"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "$27 for a double Jack and (1/2 a can) Coke and a beer seems excessive."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "I need some substance $400 for a flight And you offered me No water or snack"
Pros: "Crowded like sardines Groups 4 & 5 were told you must check your carry-on bags Wifi didn't work for all devices Pilot had to make second approach, because he was too freaking low!!"
Pros: "United switched my seats and made me sit apart from the person I was flying with because they overbooked the flight."
Pros: "Great service and flight was on time"
Cons: "Prices of additional add-ons was ridiculous"
Pros: "Price and being on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "We were delayed due to computer issues, the two different mechanical issues, then it took over an hour to stand in line to get help. They had to hire a bus to take us to Houston, once I got there, I realized that San Antonio crew lied to me and had not booked me a ticket on the flight they told me, then they sent me to talk to Air Canada, then back to United. They had booked me for next day, but was able to fly as stand-by the same day."
Pros: "The cabin attendant gave me a extra coke."
Cons: "Connection times were too close. My seat was double book on the flight."
Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"
Cons: "Flight was more than an hour late. My bags came back in terrible shape. One of them got torn"
Pros: "Shortened flight was unexpected & appreciated. Not sure if I lost some weight or united finally lengthened safety belts but I didn't need extension this trip."
Cons: "Feel like I got conned & ripped off over set upgrade at the checkin kyiosk. Offered an economy upgrade for $79 which actually was $94. I selected seat by window that had no other passengers listed in the seating aisle but somehow in the short period of time I upgrade & walked to gate a middle eastern family with 4 kids, none over 4yrs of age happen to book the seats in my aisle. It was not comfortable & definitely not an upgrade worthy of the xtra $ having kids kicking my chair, yelling, & crying majority of the trip. Had an extreme migraine when finally landed in Houston."
Pros: "The staff did fine but that's about it."
Cons: "I can't believe that a free meal isn't served on 6 hour flight and I also had to pay for the movies after paying over $2000 dollars for two tickets. It was just an extremely long domestic flight that should have been treated more like an international flight with free movies and a meal server."
Pros: "Everything was delayed which caused me to miss my connection flight so I was stuck in the airport for 12 hours."
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I got to the airport 40 minutes early. The flight was out at 6:20, I was there by 5:40. They did not let me print out a boarding pass. I could see the gate from the security line and the security line was EMPTY. There was no reason for them not to let me get on the plane, but they ended up scheduling me for a flight to Denver with the connecting flight in the morning- delaying my trip 24 hrs and charging me an extra 125$!!! I ended up paying an extra 85$ to American and was able to get to PHX that afternoon! The ladies at United were straight up RUDE too. When I told the lady at the counter my name she rolled her eyes."
Pros: "Professional service and on time departure"
Pros: "The smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."
Cons: "The delay"
