I've always preferred Qantas, and the service is still generally good, but someone has taken their eye off the food offering. Back from NZ it was noodles with a sauce in a cardboard box. No cheese and biscuits, no sweet. Air Tahiti/Air Cailin, etc.. give a decent meal while on International.
Pros: "Crew and beverage options were great."
Cons: "Seats could have been more comfortable. And slightly more leg room would have been preferred for a 14hr flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Cons: "We booked vegan meals which came and were pretty good. But afterwards, the cabin crew handed out icecreams and then Fantales and had no vegan options for those treats."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and professional. The aircraft was clean and well maintained. Food and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Completely satisfied."
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up and crew had to reboot it several times"
Pros: "Service from the moment of getting near the booking counter was excellent. Flight was on time and staff were great."
Cons: "The sandwich for lunch was boring and the bread was not very nice."
Pros: "Good movies make for a quick trip"
Cons: "I booked emrits but i was boaded on quants"
Cons: "Less gate changes"
Cons: "Baby stroller was sent to baggage claim. I had to walk with small baby and a bunch of bags through all steps instead of using the stroller."
Pros: "Good seats and leg room in economy. Crew and service were friendly and enjoyable."
Cons: "Information from Qantas on the last minute delay to the flight and ongoing changes to the timing, was poor. We got most of our information on the delay and timing was largely from other sources."
Pros: "All inside the realm of the expected"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable"
Pros: "Healthy airline food option, friendly helpful service, use of name and I'm on the bottom rung of ff status??"
Pros: "everything was lovely"
Cons: "the outdated on flight entertainment system"
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Cons: "Flight was nearly an hour late leaving."
Pros: "I don't remember much about this plane. It was nice to get food service for such a short flight. I believe we had the two seats to ourselves, and they were comfortable."
Pros: "Overall good flight and staff nice and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing comes,to mind"
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "The crew was always courteous, helpful, and patient with everyone. They just seemed to have much better attitudes than I’ve seen with other airlines, at least this crew did. Even the food was good!"
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Pros: "Boarding from an obscure gate, then being bused quite a long way to the plane was slow and tedious. There were many queues and delays along the way and the plane was late leaving. Food was not great but we we were not offered anything to drink not even water with the meal until we had finished eating. I know crew works hard but that seemed a time management problem. There is no service involved plonking down a tray. Water could be included."
Cons: "All of the above."
Pros: "Had problems with check in because of china eastern mishandling our baggage, the Quantas staff got everything sorted for us. Plenty of leg room on the flight and the cabin staff were fantastic, only thing that let it down was the food choice, but, as it was only a 3 hour flight this wasn;t really a problem. Would gladly fly with them again any time."
Pros: "On time, good food, flite staff and attendants were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Actually had wonderful vegan food for us. Express lane through customs/security. Separate biz check-in that actually worked. Good entertainment. Qantas Biz Lounge about the best lounge I've been in - just wonderful."
Cons: "Cant think of a thing."
Pros: "Staff service was excellent."
Cons: "Paid for Qantas but got Latam. Not at all the same quality of flight material. Heat hearing strange clicks that I have never experienced on other flights."
Pros: "All the food. Service was good."
Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."
Cons: "Checking process could use some improvement; LAX check-in counter staff was NOT customer oriented; got the feeling that either they hate the job and had a bad day?"
Cons: "When my bag got lost"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely and on time. Food and service were above average."
Pros: "This was AA flying for Quantas and it was all very nice; the taste of the food left something to be desired, but it was all decent portions and we were fed three times. The staff was terribly accommodating and friendly. The entertainment was top notch! The flight was smooth and was as comfortable as a 12 hour flight can be. After the hellish experience I had at both O'hare and LAX, it was a lovely way to end/begin the trip."
Cons: "Nothing, really."
Pros: "Helpful crew. Seats so close together, very difficult tou get out to use facilities. Meals tasty."
Cons: "See last comment above."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Very poor legroom, felt very cramped for an international flight. The infotainment system in my seat, and some others didn't work."
Pros: "On time dep and arr."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed and we are already getting there late to begin with."
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: "Luckily the flight was only 3 hours"
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seat (smallest, least leg room would not recline, no padding) that I can remember. Baby not just crying but screening in the seat behind me and crew did nothing."
Cons: "Minimal food and drink service."
Pros: "Getting there in one piece."
Cons: "Very small selection of movies and shows. Breakfast meal horrible. Heartburn within half hour."
Cons: "Lost a piece of our luggage--but very diligent about finding it and getting it to us the next day."
Cons: "1. Qantas was not interested in the fact that we were seniors and and that we were distress from our flight from USA. KAYAK SEND THESE COMMENTS ON TO QANTAS My phone no here in New Zealand is 0223446325 I can be contacted on this no. for more comment."
Pros: "Quick layover"
Cons: "Food used to be so much better."
Pros: "When checking in, the lady at the counter gave us great instruction on how to board and what to expect in customs when we landed in New Zealand."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment system (on-demand), on-time arrival, decent food."
Cons: "Announcements at boarding gate were impossible to understand -- very muffled."
Pros: "Wrote a story published in the Samoa News today"
Cons: "Never got my bag in Sydney and I am enroute to the Kingdom of Tonga now"
Pros: "Screen size is better and bigger"
Crew was very attentive and flight was ontime
Seria muy bueno que primero bajaran los pasajeros con conecxiones ….se hace muy dificil ir de un lado a otro y las lineas son largas. De uruguay a Montevideo nos hicieron en chile pasar revisacion de bolsos a los que teniamos conecxiones y habia 1 sola fila?????Habia mucha gente que se dirigia hacia diferentes paises y estaba enojada.Ojala algun dia cambien los asientos x lo menos cuando son viajes de 8 horas muy apretados y incomodos, no todos tenemos dinero para viajar en Primera Clase
I would recommend Lan Chile to all people flying to South America. Definitely a great experience.
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. The waiting area was filled with people milling around, trying to find their line."
Pros: "seat was comfortable"
Cons: "On a long flight, lack of drinking water during the flight, need to improve on this. Lack of communication needs to be improved"
Pros: "Yes, they did"
Pros: "The seat was ok."
Cons: "I have a delay for 24hs."
Pros: "Business class is nice and comfortable with LATAM"
Cons: "More choices for the mains would be great"
Cons: "I got a middle seat. Any other seat would’ve been better."
Pros: "Boarding and Check in was really good"
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was too cold. A bit warmer would have been better."
Pros: "Excellent price and value. Great service both before and after travelling with an infant"
Cons: "Food quality could be better"
Cons: "No entertainment. The airplane seems to be an older model."
Pros: "Premium Economy DIRTY , Aircraft was not cleaned even in Prem. Economy. Seat sold as Business Class on Kayak but actually exact same seat as economy in the back. Mean was disgusting Seat was dirty, Could not understand ANY of the announcements Will definately try a different carrier when available"
Pros: "The plane left on time. My LATAM flight to Sydney on Wednesday 12 September was cancelled and I missed a meeting that day in Sydney as a result."
Cons: "We fly during lunch time and were only serviced a snack. Something more substantial would have been in order."
Pros: "Boeing 787 Dreamliner, plane looked brand new. Attendants are friendly. Food is excellent. Best flight experience in many years."
Pros: "Was cold so requested a blanket, was told we will see ..Blankets were given to passengers in the front seat but I was ignored. I usually carry a warm scarf so do not need airline blankets."
Cons: "No issues will travel on this airline again."
Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, comfortable and well laid out."
Cons: "Some of the staff had a problem with English enunciation which makes it very difficult for aging passengers to understand"
Pros: "The aircraft."
Cons: "Charger $190 for a second check in bag of 7kg. Extremely rude staff. Terrible food. Never fly with them again!"
Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"
Pros: "Great service from start to finish"
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."
Pros: "Rescheduled on to a different airline."
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: "Lancing was excellent. Good leg room, good leather sits"
Cons: "I thought service was good."
Pros: "Awesome service, friendly staff and the Dreamliners are amazing. Thanks LATAM and thanks Kayak ... Great fares."
Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Food and drink service not given. There was no turbulence to justify this failure, and flight was over an hour long, allowing sufficient time to provide it. Poor communication of departure delay."
Pros: "Flight crew friendly , on time, clean, comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized and confusing, no where to sit at gate."
Pros: "The entertainment was awesome."
Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline. The airline informed them about the change in schedule but the company did not informe me and I almost lost the flight which would have ended with me not arriving to australia until who knows when. I am quite disappointed with this!"
Cons: "Had to wait more than 2 hours in the Que to get the boarding pass. Had to come in air new Zealand and same issues when went to brisbane. More than 8 hours wait before flying to brisbane. Thanks."
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Specially crew leader Sandra"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was top notch. Crew was wonderful and the plane itself was excellent."
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Cons: "The agents are NOT CONSISTENT in knowledge or charging baggage fees."
Pros: "We left a pocketbook at our Apt that we did not realize until we arrived at the airport. We called LATAM Airlines to cancel our flight. Can we receive any refund? Thanks, Tom and Leigh King"
Cons: "Why offer so much flights to Cusco and then cancel it the night before? Almost give us a heart attack. Had to place an international call to their US office from Lima to find out what our next morning flight will be at 11pm!"
Cons: "Missed my first leg and then they canceled my return leg without telling me. I then had to pay for a new flight"
Cons: "Latam Flight was delayed for maintenance and notice was not given via email/text or call. Desk agent pointed at paper taped on desk and asked us to read about the delay vs telling us what to expect."
Cons: "Latin service can come across as abrupt"
Cons: "The boarding process how backwards they do it And make you check carry on items Anf don't offer online check in"
Pros: "Everything was fine and no problems at all with the flight or service. Good value for money."
Cons: "Food was average. I got a chicken sandwich. It was cold (meant to be a cold sandwich) and not particularly tasty. Also, there was limited range of drinks. I asked for tomato juice and this was not available."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The crew seemed to ish they were somewhere else. I was in business class and had to beg for a drink after an hour of flying."
Pros: "Roomy seats, good meal, friendly staff."
Pros: "good service, professional, nice flight"
Cons: "nothing really"
Pros: "Nothing. They would not let me on the flight although I was at the gate an hour in advance with no checked luggage"
Cons: "I had called previously to verify that Qantas and Lan were partners and although I had purchased separate tickets (Qantas from LAX to SYD and LAN from SYD to CHC), that i would have no checked luggage and the informed to go straight to the gate. When I arrived in SYD i did and was there well in advance. They wouldn't let me on the flight and I have no idea why."
Pros: "Excellent service. Short flight, arriving in time."
we had a connection flight which the airline failed to connect - and we lost a baggage, and delayed 3 of our baggages.
The AA employees at George Bush were phenomenal. They were helpful, kind, and efficient. The airport was packed and they and the TSA moved us through the lines quickly and efficiently. Both of my flights were on time!
Pros: "Crew was nice and comfort was okay."
Cons: "There was no internet most of the flight it only worked for the first 20-30 minutes of the flight then they tried resetting it but it didn’t work for the rest of the flight."
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Cons: "Entreteinment. More room in the plain"
Pros: "I was comped an upgrade to first class for the 25 minute flight. That’s something."
Cons: "A flight that was already 39 minutes late to board, was another 50 minutes late to take off. You really do get what you pay for."
Pros: "It was quick, on time."
Cons: "Beverage service did not exist."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
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: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "WiFi was not gogo; entertainment system didn’t work - no audio. They rebooted it multiple times but it would not work. No compensation was offered and the entertainment in the app did not work either."
Pros: "The plane has no individual entertainment option. The common screen has NBC on American which has a few shows to watch."
Cons: "The only option for individual entertainment is to have another mobile device. The common screen worked but the headphone jack did not so I could not hear any of the entertainment offered."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."
Pros: "They made a long trip comfortable with an excellent attitude."
Pros: "Leaving that airplane 8 hours after expected."
Cons: "The fact that I was delayed twice, given false information, had to wait to board because a flight attendant was late for her shift and then had to run from terminal to terminal to find my flight on my own because no representative could help me or show up."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Cons: "I didn't like having someone put a red tag on my carry on for valet when it didn't have to be taken. I would have rather kept it near me!"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment at all."
Cons: "Did not offer enough WATER."
Pros: "They were gracious and courteous, the flight attendants. Very nice people."
Cons: "The last seat empty thing was weird but im sure that has to do with some new regulations or something and not the airline itself."
Pros: "No better no worse of expected services."
Cons: "A bigger snack should have been provided."
Pros: "the flight was AVIANCA , not American Airlines"
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: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
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: "Good food, kind staff, free booze"
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Pros: "The first leg had awesome pasta.Then, on the 2nd leg, Philly to Denver, they had a "pay for meal" option for turkey with Chutney sandwich - again, delicious. I should add that the service was very good as well."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Great selection for entertainment. Flight arrived to my destination early."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "I had a relaxing trip everything went smooth and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "the only thing I did not like is the food choice because it seems like every airlines have the same to choices no big deal"
Cons: "Comfort was compromised because we had to sit in chairs against back bulkhead and chairs did not properly recline. Headphonesfor movies were not offered. Even though I tried to reserve aseat 24 hours ahead of time, the computer system was impossible to navigate."
Pros: "That I was found an alternative flight and was boarded swiftly."
Cons: "That my flight was delayed four hours or more and then cancelled so I had to be transferred to a totally different flight in the early hours of the morning and that my luggage was delayed and travelled on a different flight to mine. The entire experience was very discouraging."
Pros: "Older smaller plane, no wifi"
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Pros: "The crew was nice and because the flight wasn't full we had ample space."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. It was already a late flight with 2 children"
Cons: "Aircraft old, crew with bad manners, uncomfortable seats with almost no reclining, little food with poor choices especially for breakfast, entertainment extremely poor."
Cons: "I sat at tha airport for over 9 hours before my flight left. Very poor communication and customer service."
Internet in the plane is terrible:((
The BA staff at the rear of the plane were extremely helpful and professional. Very unfortunately for me, I had developed a cough prior to flying, and when a couple of passengers complained they handled the situation very professionally and did not make things in any way awkward for me. Would most certainly recommend BA/Iberia to my friends for future travel.
Cons: "They lost my suitcase"
Cons: "Food and personnel attitude."
Cons: "Food could be better"
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Cons: "Online check in didn’t work."
Pros: "Got In ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "Staff was very friendly"
Cons: "We wanted to eat and there was no sandwiches left."
Pros: "Food on board was really good in general and some of the crew members where so polite and helpful but the rest of them nop."
Cons: "The way the crew was serving the meals and offering everything was disappointing, in few word no good. Coffee, coffees anyone? Coffee, coffee! Please! That’s not a way for serving"
Pros: "Everything. Perfect flight, service, food and Ann early arrival. All great. Memorable."
Pros: "Boarding was excellent and crew also food was good."
Cons: "Seats to small. Like sardines for 8 hours. Almost no leg room"
Pros: "Very little - other than getting off"
Cons: "Every detail from rude checking all the way through rudness"
Pros: "Bumped up to better seats than we paid for. More space mkes a long ride easier."
Pros: "Excellent service , good food . Ahead of time flight"
Pros: "The seat, the screen, the plane. Premium Economy in Iberia is totally worth."
Cons: "The power source wasn't working, Premium Economy pax can't go to the Business class restroom, although is just next to their area and have to cross half of the plane for the 1st Economy class restroom."
Pros: "Who assigns the seats? A monkey?"
Cons: "Who assigns the seats? A monkey? Half my party was seated away from me (including my 5 year old daughter); we were put in an exit row and then moved. Everyone around us was sitting apart from their traveling companions so that we talked over each other. The whole thing was absurd."
Pros: "Great check-in process. Friendly, helpful crew. Well-maintained aircraft."
Cons: "Iberia charges for everything in in-flight service (even soft drinks)."
Pros: "Staff was very nice There was a medical emergency that deleted our deplaning Passagers were concered regarding their connection The medical staff was still on board when we deplayed"
Cons: "I was not able to check in on line Had difficulty in getting a contact phone who dismissed my concerns Just said show up two hours before Good thing I went earlier since Ben Gurion has long lines for security before one gets to the ticket counter"
Cons: "No WiFi on a 10 hour flight!"
Pros: "I like the staff and the generous host of them"
Cons: "The price was not matching the benefits of the ticket because it was without check in bag (luggage) and every single thing you have to pay The type of aircraft there are using its too small business class is very poor nothing to compare with other company."
Cons: "old plane not comfortable"
Cons: "they book flight connections too close in madrid, resulting in big hassles, especially if passport control is also involved"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in parts."
Pros: "Service, food, plane cleanliness and quality of entertainment."
Pros: "Crew very nice"
Cons: "Food terrible."
Cons: "Flight from Iberia, operated by AA and finaly no flight!!!!!"
Cons: "Our luggage did not arrive. They told us it was sent to another city by mistake and that they would get it to us as soon as it arrived. It's a long story but we didn't get the bag for a week. We called multiple times and got very little help. We finally got the bag, but had to buy new clothes to get by in the meantime."
Cons: "It was hot in there and the WiFi wasn’t working Besides that it was good"
Pros: "Smooth boarding Professional and bilingual crew"
Cons: "Cramped quarters"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Absolutely everything. I paid for a seat only to get bumped to the very back of the plane. I waited in line for 30 plus minutes to talk to a gate agent who just ignored everyone in line. Their service is worse than United. You get what you pay for. I will never fly with these clowns again. And I want my $33 back for the seat I didn't get!!!!!"
Pros: "Was surprised to be upgraded to business class, so it was effectively the most comfortable flight I've ever been on!"
Pros: "The in flight movie selection was great. They were generous with providing us wine and complementary in flight entertainment . Didn't have to pay extra to check our bags."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good. But at least they provided us with some. We paid extra foe exit row seats and they allowed someone to sir across from my husband in the flight attendant seat they use during landing and take off. He sat there the entire flight. He was tall with long legs and took away from my husbands leg room which is why we paid extra for the exit row seats. Not sure if he worked for the airline as he was dressed in regular street clothes but annoying all the same."
Cons: "My ticket said operated by British Airways so after an hour of standing in line - why there were two agents baffles me-- I was told to go stand in the Iberia one. I went to a kiosk and it didn't recognize my flight, so I finally got ahold of someone. The night before I was unable to check in because their site had crashed, so there was no way for me to know where to go."
Pros: "On time. Great service."
Pros: "New aircraft, comfortable seats, and the best of all a friendly and welcoming crew. Love Iberia!"
Cons: "Space between seats too small, the food was not good."
Cons: "arrival and departure times, overall service"
Pros: "A short flight but could have some form of entertainment."
Pros: "Easy check in and comfortable seats"
Pros: "My rerun flight was overbooked so they had to find another flight for me and one other in my group of 4. Nothing was offered to make up for the inconvienience. They did manage to find a direct flight that departed s couple hours later."
Cons: "The plane was delayed after boarding and nobody accommodated the temperature in the plane, food, or informing us of what was going on."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment, the food and the good service from the ladies and gentlemen"
Pros: "The dood was decent (rice and chicken instead of a sandwich). Entertaiment was great, we had more than 20movies to choose from."
Cons: "The only bad thing was the weather. Ee ended up arriving 1hr later due to heavy rain, but then at the airport you could hear Iberia employees calling passengers with connections to speed up their process."
Pros: "Courtesy of flight crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Love Kayak. Everything excelkent."
Pros: "We did not get Kosher meals even so we order it while buying the tickets. The crew was very nice and help us with the kids meal"
Pros: "People at the airport were yelling and rude. They did not know hope to direct people to their connections and customs."
Cons: "Crew sensitivity to customer needs was horrible. One person said one thing and another said another thing to go. People confused what to follow wit multiple directions."
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.
nul I am satisfied because Jewish people were very noisy during the flight I AM NOT RACIST but they were extremely noisy and what impressed me was that the food served them at the beginning and the rest 1 hour late. The biggest problem was during the trip I was very scared the plane started shaking tremendously for a long time, this terrifies me a lot and I do not have to choose with this and I do not have to recommend it to anyone
Pros: "Boarding and deplaning was organized and efficient."
Cons: "The flight was completely full, including every middle seat. It did NOT feel safe to have a completely full flight during COVID. Some passengers kept on taking off their masks to talk to each other, completely defeating the purpose of the mask. I will not fly United again during COVID."
Pros: "Old plane. Window shade cracked. Seat poorly maintained."
Cons: "Staff could’ve done a better job at asking family with unruly kids to settle down as a courtesy to other passengers."
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. Flight arrived early into Frankfurt."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Economy seats are just uncomfortable."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "Amazing experience"
Cons: "No, everything was perfect"
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Cons: "The flight took off late due to baggage not being loaded in a timely manner and the wait on the flight when we arrived was much longer due to equipment not being handled properly; because of this my family and I missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the food choices were great. I enjoyed several hours of dimmed lighting, which helped with sleeping and kept my five year old daughter calm. The staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "One irritation was that the temperature of the plane was too cold and we have a/c blowing in our faces most of the trip. We couldn't control it from our overhead fans, so we were a bit chilly."
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."
Pros: "mediocre service"
Cons: "constant delays"
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: "Very happy United had a vegan option for dinner. Wasn't the most delicious food in the world, but airplane food seldom is and I was very happy to even have had an option."
Cons: "This was a 5 hour flight that was overnight, but the crew turned all of the lights on for dinner service and then turned them all on again for a breakfast service. I was stuck next to a kid who was kicking me every two seconds, one of the crew members kept hitting me with the food cart (my elbow was on the arm rest, not sticking out into the aisle). All in all, I got absolutely no sleep, so I was delirious and miserable once I landed in London."
Cons: "There was no free in-flight entertainment available on the tv screens. Half of the screens didn't work. The seat belts were not long enough to accommodate the passenger sitting beside me. The space for my personal item was smaller than the other flight."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Easy check in. Good flight. Good food."
Pros: "Nothing, will avoid this airline in the future"
Cons: "Cramped seats, paying for 1 bag when others didnt at gate, ran out of peanuts / pretzels, undewhelming crew. Overall wasre of money, will avoid in the future."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, leaving SNA and I would not make the connecting flight to HNL. Lyn P. at SNA placed me on Alaska Air and I was able to make my connection. Howeer my bag is lost. When I inquire on the 1-800 Baggage resolution number, my bag has not been found yet. It has been 12 hours since my bag was placed on Alaska Air at SNA."
Pros: "good flight"
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very efficient, professional and kind. It was a dramatic improvement from past experience."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculous."
Cons: "Super late pilots/airplane. The time wasn't followed as it was always DELAYED!"
Cons: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."
Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."
Pros: "Quick boarding m"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay"
Pros: "Earlier than scheduled. Enough space."
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "Notifications of flights, easy check in .... United is wonderful"
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "I learned to stop flying Air Canada or United affiliated partners"
Cons: "Just about everything else"
Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"
Pros: "Nothing. The experience was terrible. 7 trips back and forth to SLO Irport to try to get home to Palm Springs. 3 days attempt. Cancelled and delayed."
Cons: "Didn't like anything."
Pros: "Crew professional, a little bag of snacks and one cup of beverage so nothing outstanding, but then again nothing substandard than anyone else does nowadays. This flight arrived and departed right on time, as all of United flights did for me and right near Thanksgiving travel time too."
Cons: "The food was not satisfactory. Soon after take-off everyone received a skimpy packet of breadsticks. A while later a meal (lunch) was served. It was very good. Many hours later everyone received a packet of pretzels, etc. About an hour before arrival everyone received a sandwich in a plastic wrap. It was close to inedible. Beverage service was very good. However, the amount of food served was unacceptable. This seemed like a budget flight. Very different from the flight to Europe on a Lufthansa plane. This was on a United plane. Will make me think twice about flying to Europe on a United plane."
Cons: "I had to fly to San Francisco bcs maintenance and delays bullshit"
Pros: "Comfortable seats,, easy luggage bins, attentive crew."
Cons: "Wi-fi didn't work. Direct TV was expensive"
Pros: "Boarding was organized. Crew was great."
Pros: "The one little flight attendant was sweet and kind."
Pros: "Except for the boarding process, the flight went smoothly, the crew was friendly and I had no problems."
Cons: "The boarding process was confusing. I was issued a boarding pass with "see agent" instead of a seat assignment listed. When I saw the United agent at the gate I was told "don't worry we'll find you a seat." I was confused because I felt that I was treated as if I was flying stand by when in reality I booked my ticket in advance. Everything worked out in the end--I was one of the last on the plane but I got a seat and had no issues with finding a place for my carry-on--however, I prefer having an assigned seat to avoid the anxiety of not knowing what is going on during the boarding process."
Pros: "The plane was on time."
Cons: "Overbooked. Food service for a fee. Tight leg room unless you want to upgrade ($$) for decent leg room. DirectTV only worked for 15 minutes, even if you paid."
Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"
