Pros: "I liked the size of the cups for drinks: smaller than usual."

Pros: "Singapore airlines never disappoints"
Cons: "Everything. Singapore Airlines had a great reputation. Imagine my disappointment. It was a horrible flight. The crew was nice enough, but inattentive. The food, if such a term may be applied here, was inedible. Just vile. In flight entertainment was a complete joke. Boarding was awful, but it always is. Seats were extremely uncomfortable. This racket is the ultimate way to rip somebody off of $1000. Horrible."

Cons: "The leg room was horrible. Honestly the worst space I've ever had in a flight. I was shocked considering Singapore air is considered one of the best airlines"

Pros: "So good to get on a flight where I can fit in the seats..."
Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."

Pros: "Staying in a hotel for 24 hours."

Cons: "Nothing bad to say about this flight. Great airline."
Pros: "Food and good service"
Pros: "Very good service! Lots of flight attendants and they were kind the flight was long, but mostly smooth. The entertainment was good and there was a lot of it."
Cons: "The flight map was a mess. It either said we had 115 hours of flying time or 3.5 hours. Also, it showed the plane pointing in the opposite direction that we were flying in. A minor issue, but weird."
Pros: "I like the personal TV, my foot rest and water holder frequent water serve,"
Cons: "For me coffee is too strong, and I like the food on the way to Tokyo better than on the way back to LA"
Pros: "Great service. Really friendly and polite. Lots of current movies and TV shows to watch and provided earbuds with adaptors. Made the experience a lot more pleasant."
Cons: "The seats can be laid bag pretty far and the people in front of me decided to recline for a majority of the 10 hour flight. I wish the chairs either didn't do this or the flight attendants would have said something. I didn't feel like I had the authority to do anything about it. Also it was so warm! I have no idea if there was a fan."
Pros: "I paid for an economy class ticket but got first class service."
Cons: "My Vegan meal was terrible."
Pros: "Clean aircraft. First rate and very attentive cabin staff. High Quality food and mid flight snacks. Its clear a lot of thought has gone into the making and running of this airline. My first experience and quite frankly I will fly SIA whenever possible."
Cons: "Cabin was to me a little warm during initial taxi at LAX. But not overly so."
Pros: "The service and fast flight"
Pros: "Ease of checking. Empty seat between us"
Cons: "Can't upgrade with krisflyer miles"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean, new, spacious and quiet. The bathrooms were regularly maintained. The food quality, selection and quantity was excellent for the economy class. Even the serving utensils were solid metal and had a very high quality feel to it. Having an endless supply of mid flight snacks was also appreciatd I always like the warm wet towels, which were offered at take off and landing. The entertainment choices were endless, but because it had USB and regular power, I was able to work on my laptop and listen to my podcasts on phone without worrying about running out of battery."
Cons: "The crew lacked its usual pep and cheer. For some reason they seemed very introverted and tired. First time on Singapore Airline that I noticed. The amenities kit was a bit on the cheap side. Also, only the supplied two prong headphones could be used with the entertainment system, I would have preferred an option to use my high end ones -- this was the main reason I chose to just work and listen to my own music/podcasts instead of watching a movie. We boarded and disembarked through the business sections and the aisles were too narrow. The announcements were hard to hear and the temperature was set too low for half of the flight (to kept fluctuating requiring constant adjustment of blanket/jacket). Having said that will keep flying them."
Pros: "Touch screen entertainment system with great variety of programs. Good food, clean cabin, friendly crews. I'd fly again on Singapore Air over other domestic airlines and Japanese airlines."
Cons: "Sound quality of ear buds was not good. No issues if you travel with your own."
Pros: "The service in coach was very impressive! The flight attendants could not be more attentive! I can only imagine how it would be in business or first class."
Pros: "Made Econ class feel like biz :)"
Pros: "The food wss delicious which was surprising. The lamb stew with fresh peas was delicious, and I don't even like peas!"
Cons: "Th entertainment system was old and tiny. Think watching VHS video tapes on a five inch screen. I think my phone screen was wider."
Pros: "The best long leg flight I've been on. I managed to get a whole row to myself and that made the 12hr flight so much better. The crew was very professional, kind, attentive, and it was grand."
Pros: "Customer service and food couldn't be better."
Pros: "Huge selection of movies Towel service, socks, and toothbrush for economy class Snacks included entire chocolate bars! Friendly staff"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The leg rests didn't have enough room to be useful. I'm only 5'10", which is average, not tall, so they should have had more legroom."
Pros: "Everything in this flight is very good. Next traveling time I will consider this airline first!!"
Pros: "Leg room in economy is good, even for tall people. Food was actually quite good."
Cons: "Two of our family's seats would not recline, although they were not near an exit row."
Cons: "old facilities"
Pros: "Singapore airlines was also great and I very much enjoyed that flight even though it was 10 or more hours. The good was great and same for the entertainment . The whole flight was very pleasant . Also I loved the steamed towels that was something i haven't had on a flight before ."
Pros: "The stewardesses were extremely professional- attentive & pleasant. The toilet was well equipped. There was no delay in taking off Boarding was orderly & efficient & quick and so was disembarking. The snacks were nice- ice cream, apples, chops, sandwiches. Many other airlines don't even provide snacks on these long flights. The seats in wconomy were roomy & confortable."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that was bad but I didn't enjoy the breakfast. I would have preferred an American breakfast. It was a mixture of shrimp, potato & brocolli. Ivwould have pregerred a criossant & yogurt to the tiramisu & roll."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super attentive and took great care of me, even bringing me headache medicine."
Cons: "I was in a front row seat which meant using my table in the armrest would wake up my neighbor. (Not a big deal but a little awkward) It was also hard to sleep because the seats didn't recline enough."
Pros: "It was the best service ive ever had. The flight attendants came right away and were always coming up the aisle making sure we eye well hydrated and fed"
Pros: "Aircraft was a new A320. Superb. Loads of legroom and extra width . Great flight."
Cons: "I was turned away at the gate and was unable to board the plane. It was an awful experience!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing, very attentive."
Cons: "I couldn’t get the seat to recline."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "First time travelling with the airline and wasn't aware of having to book things like food and entertainment. These things come standard with all other airlines I have flow with so was very surprised when finding out about it mid flight. Can't say I was very pleased but must say crew were very good"
Pros: "The seats are comfortable. I was fortunate to have a gap in the middle seat. On my flight there was a delay due to a person needing to disembark before the flight took off. The flight dealt with the person inconsiderately and explained to everyone the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was efficiently run and seats comfortable."
Pros: "Nice, short flight. Smooth ride."
Cons: "Had a middle seat between two very large women. Couldn't be helped, was a full flight."
Pros: "Good for a sheot flight"
Pros: "Wellington airport is the most accessible and relaxed I’ve used, and the Air New Zealand Check-in process was the easiest I’ve used so far."
Pros: "The plane, seat, food, amenities, staff, etc were all world class"
Cons: "LAX immigration is a nightmare but not NZ fault."
Pros: "Checking in, bag drop, and boarding were all super fast and easy. Flight was on time."

Pros: "The crew were all very attentive."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Late start of check in"
Cons: "i was a little disappointed in seating .... felt like a Sardine ... unlike my flight from Brisbane to Auckland on my way to LA... which surprised me,"
Pros: "Please read notes above -"
Pros: "Baggage made it all the way to Queenstown from Perth"
Cons: "Check -in staff said that there were no seats available in emergency exit rows so put us in the row in front. We couldn't recline and thete were several seats empty in the emergency exit row behind us."
Pros: "The airport was great! Very easy access, fast check in and security. Loved the LOTR theme. Uneventful and beautiful flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Air New Zealand was great, plane comfortable and the crew very nice"
Cons: "$120 to check my 12kg bag! I was outraged! Was sold a ticket that included nothing but a seat and virgin and air new Zealand were not helpful. Kayak should have been more transparent about this exhorbitant fee! I plan to raise a stink when I get back to the states. Was shocked and had no other choose but to pay!"
Pros: "Punctuality. Confortable plane."
Pros: "Very professional staff"
Cons: "I don’t have an option of purchasing a meal during check in or at any moment during my booking."
Pros: "Suggest boarding with electronic board !"
Pros: "We flew premium economy which included every luxury we could desire. We could not be more satisfied."
Pros: "Reliable service. Flew Air NZ twice without any hiccups. Boards on time, leaves on time. Get a biscuit (cookie), drink, and sweet. Had room on both flights also. Not packed to the gills and enjoyed the aerial view of the lovely NZ countryside."
Cons: "Nothing... didn’t give 5 star due to no monitor/tv for entertainment but with such a short flight it really isn’t necessary."
Cons: "Charged us for baggage, even though the flight was international and clearly stated on their website international flights included baggage. Had to pay more than we paid for our flights just to check a bag."
Pros: "Meal was excellent"
Cons: "Would have liked a blanket, it was a bit cold."
Pros: "I liked that it got me from point a to point b. I had to pay extra to watch movies, no meal on an international flight (tbh I'm not sure what I ticketed and didn't tick while booking, but I mean it was nz to aus, come on)."
Cons: "Not getting my luggage across the ditch, paying for movies as an extra, no meal."
Pros: "Although I'd like to see the seats upgraded to ones adjustable to lie flat seats without getting up and several steps, the crew on the Air New Zealand flights make the difference. What a PLEASANT experience. Great passenger service boarding to landing."
Cons: "Once made, the lie flat seats are extremely comfortable. However, it's a bit of a hassle to get the bed made. Also the seats don't offer as much privacy as seats on other carriers (AA, UA, LH etc). If they changed the seats, the airline can compete with any other, as the crews are superb."
Pros: "Premium Economy was worth the price! The section was not as full, and the service was wonderful."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating staff. Good food, comfortable seats, and excellent entertainment choices."
Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Cons: "Boarding is an issue. Please have more staff in the early stages of boarding to make sure people go to the correct lines . It's not immediately obvious and leads to frustration . I wasn't too bothered as I worked it out quickly but I could hear many others expressing their frustration around me . I was disappointed in the movie selection. I wanted more new release movies to choose from . Cabin crew friendly and polite . Love the wine ! Put up with being cramped .. would love more leg room but overall very happy ! Thank You everyone involved !"
Pros: "Not much to like with the cattle car ride that was an hour late."
Cons: "I was shocked at the baggage charge upon checking in and was told I just purchased a seat from Virgin Australia but no baggage transport with the flight. When kayak directed me to VA, I made the purchase and certainly did not remember being offered a chance to purchase baggage fee as other airlines offer (e.g. BA). While I understand kayak refer users to search airlines baggage fees it need to make sure that airlines offer true and baggage fees at the time of purchase so the full cost of flight is clear at purchase time."
Pros: "Boarding and service were attentive, entertainment excellent"
Cons: "The seat space is little cramped even for a relatively slim 5'11". Food taste was below airline average."
Pros: "everythign aboht the trip was great"
Pros: "Everything FA even got our bags out while taxiing into gate"
Pros: "Foot rests, pillows, blankets, nice seats, and they had free in flight entertainment as well as dinner and beverages"
Pros: "Extra leg room at front of plane."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
Pros: "Good IFE"
Cons: "No enforcement of carry on - therefore no bin space"
Pros: "Crew, ground and flight crew, were all so friendly and accommodating. Great access to free snacks/drinks, but the best was the seats with the footrests that lift all the way up to form a couch, even for those of us who aren't able to fly business class, but are frequent flyers."
Cons: "The video system wasn't as good as say, Virgin or B.A., but it's such a small issue, compared to the superior comfort of coach in Air New Zealand to the other steerage-like coach classes."
Cons: "Slow service and delay exiting"
Pros: "Getting on was a delight in Wellington. Having two set of doors open was great."
Cons: "Getting off in Auckland, only the front doors open so took what felt like ages to get off."
Pros: "Staff and the cleaninless of the plane."
Pros: "Very helpful check-in staff helped me arrange to sit with a friend on the trip."
Cons: "My first seat had a broken entertainment system but I was quickly moved to a new seat."
Pros: "amazingly pleasant crew, great food, efficient service, very comfortable."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Pros: "Some of the crew were excellent service wise"
Cons: "Some of the crew were less than what I would expect service wise"
Pros: "Air New Zealand may be one of the best airlines I've ever flown. Fantastic service and great flight!"
Cons: "flight was seriously delayed, poor communication from staff & NZ Air app to travelers re reason for & how long delay would actually be. Shortly after we finally boarded I got a text saying our connecting flight from Christchurch to Dunedin was cancelled. So, we were flown to Christchurch & given hotel accommodations for the night, only to be flown BACK the next day to Wellington to catch a flight to Dunedin. All in all quite infuriating."
Cons: "Business does not have salad for everyone, I missed out salad"
Cons: "It’s ridiculous that Cheaptickets (your contracted agent) did not answer the phone to change flights. And when they did answer the phone, charged extortionate change fees above and beyond Qantas fees even during the coronavirus pandemic."
Pros: "All was good"
Pros: "We were treated very rudely."
Cons: "We were treated very rudely. We should’ve taken another airline"
Pros: "Amazing food and entertainment."
Cons: "I’ve been on more comfortable plane seats."
Pros: "staff were nice"
Cons: "-priority boarding isn’t priority -only vegetarian food"
Pros: "an amazing flying experience with pleasant crews who served their customers with hearts and their lovely smiles!"
Pros: "The onboard crew was very nice and attentive."
Cons: "Qantas should have updated the passengers during the very long delay. A 4 1/2 hour delay warrants a little better treatment of there passengers but they left us in the dark as to what was going on. Even if there’s no new information, they should say so."
Pros: "What was there to like!"
Cons: "That i couldn't board this flight. Duh!"
Pros: "Quick boarding and deplaning on arrival"
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Cons: "American airlines dont know what passengers need to enter a country and then rebooked me on new zealand air but quantos changed that and i dont know where my bags are. Does the insurance i bought cover any if not all of these inconveniences."
Cons: "Couldn't get on the flight, thanks to the airline counter person."
Pros: "The flight was fast, crew was awesome and overall was awesome"
Cons: "My kayak app wasn’t updated to the correct flight time so they had to put me on the last flight to Melbourne that would make it. Thankfully quantas is awesome and got it done."
Pros: "I loved Qantas's attention to detail and their exceptionally friendly staff. Best airline I've used in recent years."
Pros: "Flight was delayed simply due to the poor positioning of the auxiliary power unit that is an acceptable reason for delay which shows absolutely poor operational management of the local airport operations"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Very old plane, entertainment pathetic. Seats bad Time to retire plane.."
Pros: "Very good selection of movies with recent releases; the section at the back of the plan with drinks and small snacks was also good music selection was also excellent"
Cons: "the meals were not great and spaced out a lot. no green tea, no eyemasks and socks provided"
Pros: "It never left.....I am still in Sydney!!!! Keep up on your dlights"
Cons: "Quantas Flight was cancelled going down and also back."
Pros: "Wonderful staff, the flight felt quick and easy."
Cons: "The food, there was no vegetarian option."
Pros: "Really appreciate the food and entertainment Qantas provides on these mid-haul flights"
Cons: "Seat was quite uncomfortable for a long flight. Would be nice if the window arm rest could fold up."
Pros: "All the services"
Pros: "The staff on board were very kind."
Cons: "Being delayed 3 1/2 hours...but at least now I know the ' friends' I traveled w/aren't the people I though they were. Their American Airlines flight was on time. They arrived at LAX at 6:30 a.m. By the time I landed at 10, they were already home. Without me."
Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Pros: "Cabin crew is friendly. No reschedules or gate changes. Pretty straight forward to catch a plane."
Cons: "First off the planes I flew on were noticeably old."
Pros: "I didn't eat dinner as I was too tired, but the breakfast was good and dinner looked pretty good. For airline food, that is. The staff were very polite and friendly."
Cons: "I previously flew Tokyo to Sydney premium economy on Japan Air and that created expectations. This was significantly worse. The seats were not as comfortable or as spacious. On JL, you have a bit of a barrier between you and the person in the next seat. On Qantas, you very much do not. While this is probably more just bad luck than anything else, the boarding experience was nightmarish with swarms of people blocking every passage."
Pros: "It was a smooth uneventful flight. We arrived on time."
Cons: "The distance between the seats has decreased substantially. Reminds me of a Jetstar budget flight. The food being served in cardboard boxes was Aldo a big shock. For the cost of a qantas flight I expected more comfort and better food served"
Pros: "Qantas crew were amazing. Entertainment offered was excellent."
Cons: "Not suitable meals for a long flight. E.g. Chili dogs way too messy, garlic bread should not contain garlic! Was charged an additional $35 per seat to get seat assignments 24 hrs before. Then, seats not together & changed again before flight. Why the fee for nothing?"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, cabin crew were friendly and helpful. Food was tasty, but portion rather small."
Cons: "Didn't like that every time someone nearby used the entertainment - watched a film I think, my film changed."
Pros: "The people I came in contact with were very helpful."
Cons: "Nothing, everything went well. Same complaint as everyone else, not enough leg room."
Pros: "Excellent service!!! The flight attendants were amazing! Everyone seemed happy and was very pleasant. Would definitely fly with Quantas again. Thank you for making my trip more enjoyable."
Pros: "Best I've flown in a while."
Cons: "No Upgrades available when they had empty sets in business class. ??? Not sure why.?"
Pros: "They gave us loaner strollers to get the kids through the airport. So family friendly. Food was great too."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Food: Japanese fried chicken was soggy. Economy space is cramped, and stuck next to a guy who invaded into my space and guy in front leant his seat back. Overnight flight but couldn't sleep when it was so cramped (when usually I can without problem on other flights)"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, recommend qantas to others based on this alone"
Cons: "Qantas safety video was to long... painful to watch. i would love ro see airlines start recycling the waste generated in fliht"
Pros: "Nice seats."
Cons: "Poor selection of entertainment options. New iPad system cheaper for airline, but offers less than the in built wired system it replaced."
Pros: "Such an arduous and indirect flight route and entertainment screen was non viable but always good to fly with Qantas!"
Pros: "movie selection"
Cons: "Crew is not friendly or helpful Many times you couldn't get them. Serving process is very poor due to the process."
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"
Pros: "It was a short flight from Wellington to Sydney. There was no food served but beverages and snack."
Cons: "Not much I didn't like"
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly, the flight left on time, food good and cabin clean."
Cons: "Had a jumpy screen for a while and the headsets were a bit sensitive with the sound dropping on and off. The controls were on the top of the arm rest which my husband kept accidentally knocking. Changing channels, turning up the volume etc."
Pros: "Great staff, overall comfortable for a long flight."
Cons: "Our vegetarian meals were bland and repetitive; dinner and breakfast pretty much identical. We received little processed fruit cups both meals, while the others had a nice fresh fruit entree."
Cons: "The airline used a codeshare that did not seem to signify anything. They would not provide me with any help when it became clear I would miss my connection. Furthermore, I purchased an extra legroom seat and was charged for it twice. Avoid if at all possible"
Pros: "Crew was very professional. Entertainment was good. Pillows and blankets were availanle when we arrived."
Cons: "We were sporadicaly with water and ice from above. The arm rests were uncomfortable and some were broken. Food was only so so and for international flyers, the menu was not able to be fully understood."
Pros: "Fog prevented the plane we where to fly out on from landing however planes from other airlines where landing. This lead to a 6 hour delay."
Pros: "Nothing because they did not allow us to take the flight. We had to buy new sets of tickets."
Cons: "They did not do their best to help us talk to the Australian embassy to allow us to re enter Sydney even as transit passengers just to be able to take our flight with Philippine airlines early the next morning. I know we made a mistake of getting flight to Manila in Sydney. We should have just gotten flight from Auckland instead but it was an honest mistake. They should have just allowed us since we know it's possible. We spent 14, 000NZ additional for that mistake."
"The check in process was kind of slow considering that I had already checked in and just needed to drop off my bag. Everything else was great! I love flying with the Japanese. Their customer service is always astounding."
Cons: "The front desk did not allow me to board the plane. I am supposed to attend the memorial service of my Mom who passed away two days before."
Pros: "The flight was nice and easy. Great food and service."
Cons: "Plane is still yet to be upgraded to full Polaris experience"
Pros: "Plane was good except the seat which was hard and not reclining enough and headset was “hard to hear”. Services were good but food (meals) were awful."
Cons: "Need to look for better chef or food provider"
Cons: "I ran to the gate from my previous flight, but it turned out this flight had been delayed. The flight boards and United app didn't show that though."
Pros: "The staff was impeccable. Boarding was great. My seat was not comfortable, but what can we say?"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. That was not cool. We had to download the app, but WiFi was not included."
Pros: "Not too much. Very poor compared with Asian airlines"
Cons: "Seat comfort in economy plus, food was terrible and cabin attendants provided poor service"
Pros: "Great gate agent and flight crew!! I checked in my acoustic guitar for the first time with an airline and it was treated like gold."
Cons: "Nothing at this time"
Cons: "All is good"
Pros: "Delayed. Bagage mis-rerouted."
Cons: "Be honest when bags are not routed correctly after assuring passenger twice that bags will be at the same airport they were re-routed too. Do not ask passengers for a bag delivery fee when the mistake was United's. Keep passengers informed of delayed flight and keep inconvenience to a minimum."
Pros: "Entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Seats were pretty bad. For a 10 hour flight, rigid, not reclining. Crew was curt. Not rude but curt. Food was terrible. Asked for Indian vegetarian meal - but got an Asian vegetarian meal that had no taste whatsoever. If they can do a Muslim meal, I don't know why they can't do Indian Vegetarian."
Pros: "Good communication from crew concerning updates and ETAs."
Cons: "Service was a bit brusque at times, but never unkind."
Pros: "Food was decent. Loved the movie options"
Cons: "Could have used more water throughout."
Cons: "As a result of arriving late on Air Canada we never made our flight to Tokyo. Had to rebook and fly Asians through Seoul. Asiana flight was excellent!"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The persons sitting next to me"
Pros: "United is good,"
Cons: "Airport EWR is bad."
Cons: "CAs of UA were not kind as usual. It was UA, so I didn't expect nice service from first."
Cons: "Horrible customer service, crew looked and sounded like they hated their jobs. I chose ANA because I’ve had many positive experiences in the past where the customer service was stellar."
Cons: "I thought I booked with ANA, but it was actually United. Plane and crew all United. I expected domestic flight would be United but international flight would be ANA. Many people didn’t have seats until last minutes, no explanations, desk clerk was not helpful at all and had attitudes. And Food was terrible!!!"
Cons: "Kayak's third party CS company gives me the ANA schedule while in fact I have to check in with United Airlines. Because of this, I was not able to check in on line in San Diego. Please ensure that Kayak & their affiliate are well coordinated with the information they send out to customers."
Pros: "economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight."
Cons: "they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight."
Pros: "Crew was great and took care of my carry-on as all the space near my seat was full, so she brought it back to the front and stowed it for me."
Cons: "Seats were small, as typically horrible on flights these days. In-flight movies are normally free over a 5 hour flight, but that didnt seem to be the case, not a bad thing as overnight everyone slept, however my screen was unable to shut off so we had to cover it with a blanket to block the light."
Cons: "Plane seats were so narrow that my knees were pressed into the back of seat infront of me."
Pros: "Check in excellent, staff at airport very professional."
Cons: "No negative issues"
Pros: "Three seats to myself, not crowded."

Pros: "Boarding was as expected, flight was on time, all was OK. Nothing to recommend particularly. d"
Cons: "Few choices in beverages and food. No decaf or green tea or coffee except instant coffee. "Snack" was nothing much."
Cons: "Had to pay to pay extra to watch t.v. was $7.99 for a 2 hour flight. Could go to a theater for those prices. Everyone in my group complained about it"
Pros: "Security Video was interesting. Seat was wide and comfortable."
Cons: "Food was tasty, but strange smell was contaminated. Announce was so fast and unclear both English and Japanese. I felt no intention to communicate."
Pros: "Food and service not bad. Flight on time."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. One snarky light attendant. Little leg room. Terrible selection of films for all passengers. Have to get United app on ground--need this to be communicated better, on website, before boarding, and onboard."
Cons: "Disorganised with aggressive & disgruntal staff"
Pros: "The jet did not crash."
Cons: "Boarding, staff, instructions, overpriced everything"
Pros: "The stroll waffle"

Pros: "Quick short flight."
Pros: "The flight experience was as usual. There was nothing out of the ordinary for me. The airline was good and the crew was great. Economy sitting on any long flight is never excellent."
Cons: "The entertainment was okay. It was one of the older model aircraft, so no seat selection of entertainment."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment screen on this aircraft."
Cons: "Not any vegetarian food choice"
Pros: "Just great"
Pros: "Quick boarding/deplaning and super friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."

Cons: "Cramped legroom"
Pros: "Seat comfort. Crew was much nicer than crew I had out Houston on previous trip."
Cons: "I put 3's on food and entertainment because it wasn't used partially due to availability. I wasn't able to download app and personal headphones ended up being checked due to small plane so couldn't listen to anything. I wasn't partial to food options so didn't get to eat"
Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Pros: "A everything was fine other than..."
