Pros: "I would like to say this is the most horrific experience I have ever had traveling and using Kayak. I was late by 10 mins getting to the ticket counter and Emirates gave my seat away. I then proceeded to attempt to rebook and the Emirates agent advised they are sold out for the next 3 days and have no flight alternatives to offer. I contact flight network and the person I spoke proceeds to tell me the same thing and there is nothing they can do for me. Basically that I would need to purchase a whole new ticket on another airline as Emirates doesn't have availability. Which I did. Now I'm looking online and Flight Network has my exact flight on Emirates available at same price I paid for my ticket. But now my new ticket purchased to get home is non-refundable. I'm out over 1000 dollars because of bad info. This has been a horrific experience and after being loyal to Kayak for years.... I will never use the site again."

More then 3 hours delay with 500 people have lots of questions. Need to answer with lot of patients. The manger behavior was not appropriate with one lady with the kids."

Cons: "Meals could be improved"
Pros: "They never cared about non-muslim passenger as the flight is full of muslim passengers."
Pros: "Food and entertainment"
Cons: "I travelled from KUL to JFK with transit at Abu Dhsbi. Nightmarish transit in Abu Dhabi. Three intrusive security screenings (why three?). At some point they take away your boarding pass and make you sit in a hall for about half an hour (with similar 'criminals') with no access to bathrooms without telling you why. Then they call your name to return the boarding pass ( which was a problem for me because I am hearing challenged). Not sure this special treatment is reserved for just brown skinned travellers"
Cons: "Crews attitudes + the long flight"
Cons: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was awful. There was no other choice than Paneer the indian food."
Pros: "As I said, the crew and facility were pretty good. But the bad things really ruined the trip and pissed me off."
Cons: "First of all, I tried to purchase the on-plane WiFi. That didn't happen, as I was told there was an error in purchasing and I didn't end up getting any connection. Yet when I got off the plane, I realized that I was nevertheless charged for $12. This was definitely annoying, and they still haven't gotten back to me. Secondly, which is very frustrating and infuriating, was the fact that not only was my checked luggage delayed, they did not call me or reply to my emails with any useful information on my luggage's situation. To this date, I have no idea where it is, if it's lost or damaged, or when can they deliver it to me. I had all my clothes, my DSLR camera and gifts in my luggage, and I had to buy a bunch of stuff in the next few days because I didn't have those things. It has been more than a week, and they still haven't gotten back to me on anything. For this reason alone, I think they totally deserve a poor overall rating, especially because I chose them in the first place because I trusted their good ratings."
Cons: "Limited food options and quantity."
Pros: "There is nothing much to like about the flight. The only good thing about Etihad is the pre clearance option at Abu Dhabi that saves a lot of time after landing in the US"
Cons: "14+ hours of flying time where it can be done under 10 to 12 hours. Food is not good at all."
Cons: "Crew was not as attentive as Emirates Airlines."
Pros: "مجال الكراسى"
Pros: "Ample storage available in window seat. Window seat for solo business traveler is nice; private."
Cons: "Boarding very inefficient- rushed out of Premium Lounge to go to the pre-screening for return to US - finished and at the gate sent back to a nearby lounge with just enough time to sit down for a few minutes."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than Qatar. Staff was very friendly. They handed out more water than other airlines, which is much needed on the long flights."
Cons: "They caused a lot of us to miss our connecting flights bc of hours-long delays. I had to stay overnight in Abu Dhabi. They put me up, which was nice, but I was sad to miss the first day of my work trip bc of it."
Pros: "The movie options and food were good."
Cons: "This flight had the potential to be good as the entertainment and food options were good, but I felt cramped and the volume of the surrounding passengers was awful. There were three crying babies, which I know neither the airline nor the families themselves can control, as well as one child with special needs who was making a lot of noise the whole flight. I wasn't able to sleep at all for that reason. Additionally, I was disappointed that the flight was late and that the deplaning process was so long – we taxied for a long time and there was only one staircase, so we were very late."
Pros: "I had the opportunity of flying The Apartment from Abu Dhabi to JFK. It was one of the most incredible first class cabin experiences ever. The experience starts when boarding the aircraft and you are personally escorted to your seat and introduced to the several features around you. The space is ample and the cabin has some privacy doors making it feel very exclusive. There is a large couch across the seat which later is converted into a bed. I was offered pijamas and a small closet to hang my clothes right before take off. Once on the air our personal chef introduced himself and explained the different dishes from the menu. I was able to try the steak and the lamb biryani; both were superb. The IES provided a decent selection of western and some middle eastern films as well as a few live news channels. After I woke up our flight attendant explained the on board shower which is also a distinctive feature allowing to feel refreshed before landing. I had another meal before landing which included an appetizer, and entree and a dessert made with roses. The crew was nothing but fantastic and I would love to fly with them again."
Cons: "I was not told what airline lounge I should use at JFK, but the only regret I had was not being able to take a longer flight..."
Pros: "All aspects"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Very noisy with loads of kids, crying babies"
Cons: "There is no politeness of cabin crew and there not having ample stuff as snacks and liquor. They are not desire to serve you as long flight India to PHIONIX"
Pros: "I like Etihad airways."
Cons: "Food really needs to be upgraded."
Cons: "Child screaming for 12 hours straight. No action taken to resolve."
Pros: "Seat relatively comfortable. Liked pillow that resembled neck pillow."
Cons: "Despite plane not being full, crew seemed to have difficulty serving meals."
Pros: "Best airline out there, by a long shot Was given a vegan food option when booking!"
Pros: "I enjoyed all aspects of the flight except the food."
Cons: "I did not likeep the food. It was oily and didn't have a good taste."
Pros: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."
Cons: "Beware of the etihad airport crew at Abu Dhabi. They are extremely inept. The gate agent lost my ID card needed to gain entry into a third country. Not only I had to miss my connecting fight from Abu Dhabi, was never put on another flight, but etihad also cancelled my return portion of the ticket all due to a mistake by their gate agent."
Pros: "the crew was good, unlike NY-AUH flight where some crewmembers were arrogant bathrooms were kept clean"
Cons: "zone boarding should be smoother, but people still try to skip the line"
Pros: "Bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "Tranfer desk staff at auh changed assigned seat. Inflight crew Made an excuse for not serving coffee. Took more than an hour to get bags"
Pros: "The service was spectacular to begin with. It was consistent, frequent and ultimately satisfying. It was a very comfortable ride with enough space for a broad guy like me. What I love most is their selection of entertainment. I have to say that in the 16-17 hours I flew with them (which I just came home from) I never felt claustrophobic, uncomfortable, or bored. I was in the middle seat. I love their flight progress and flight time. Their timing was very accurate. In fact, both flights landed earlier than expected."
Cons: "I didn't really dislike anything on the return trip. It was everything I expected and more"
Cons: "If you are flying from AUH to JFK, they pre-clear you for US Customs. What they don't tell you is that the cut-off to get to the gate is one hour before departure. I took a leisurely stroll down to the gate when he signs said 'boarding soon' and was denied entry to the flight. The next one was in seven hours, so I spent the night in the terminal. The big slap in the face, aside from how rude the staff were: they won't just put you on the next flight. You have to buy a new ticket, full fare. It cost me more to get home than the original round trip ticket did to begin with. Trying to discuss this is fruitless - they are absolutely not interested in helping, but instead use phrases like "you are the one that is wrong" and "why should we pay for your mistake". Essentially, I was held hostage in Abu Dhabi and forced to pay a heavy charge to leave."
Pros: "Flight was on time and even landed to JFK an hour early. Flight was not full. Hence, enjoyed free vacant seats to lay down. Landing was nice and smooth"
Cons: "Food was horrible. No desert provided. Juice was not natural. It was sugar added juices. USB port was not working to charge my smart phone."
Pros: "granted food voucher"
Cons: "movie selection poor. 3 hour delay"
Pros: "Bussiness class was excellent."
Pros: "It Was a beautiful expiren ce"
Cons: "Middle Seat"
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "The check-in cashier was very rude. maybe she should retake the course in hospitality. Again, it was operates by AA so what should I expect?"
Cons: "Etihad overbooked me along with more than a dozen other passengers on a 14-hour international flight. Apparently Etihad decides on who gets left behind. Etihad's "Transit Travelers" service is one of the WORST customer service desks I've ever been to. I waited in line for 2 hours. Passengers were urging to be served so they can make it to their connecting flights not knowing they have been already selected not to board those plains. Voices were raised and demands were made to speak to the supervisor. It was chaos. I made it to the agent shortly after the gate to my flight had opened. I was shocked by how the agent lacked empathy when he informed me I won't make it to the connecting flight because it had been overbooked. Not an apology or even sir! I was forced to be rerouted which stretches my 25-hour trip to 33 hours. Then the connecting flight gets delayed more than an hour resulting in missing the second connecting flight. Now my trip has become a 41-hour trip, I missed a day of work that's worth more than double the value of the voucher Etihad gave me and lost one day of unscheduled vacation. Etihad even damages my bag that had servived more than 10 flights. I will never fly Etihad and strongly recommend against flying with Etihad."
Cons: "we had a layover for about 7 hours. The airport was cold. But the departure lounge was extremely cold, very uncomfortable. Even wearing a hooded jacket, I was very cold and my hands were numb. And we waited about 3 hours in the departure area."
Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"
Pros: "nice plane"
Cons: "The gate was closed. people sitting on floor"
Cons: "Horrible food plan. We were served an entire dinner 2 hours before landing in New York and mind you it was morning in New York. Instead of serving breakfast, we were given dinner which was again horrible. Worst food plan ever!"
Cons: "A computer problem caused us to sit on the tarmac for 3 hours. Good times."
Pros: "Best Airline."
Cons: "Nothing, flights are always great in my experience with United."
Pros: "It was a mediocre flight. No frills."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "On time departure and landed a little early"
Cons: "Seats should recline more More food options"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Snacks from Lax to Denver"
Pros: "Onboard, sat down & fell asleep."
Cons: "The tv/entertainment system does not seem to have a FF/RW function. So if you have seen the beginning of the movie playing on the previous flight, you have to sit through it again."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Kids dont like fancy spices. Both ways we had ravioli. Thai. Spinach. Sundried tomatoes. Quinoa. Plain breakfast sandwich was best for both kids. If there is a special thing for kids make it clear. We would have taken that. Many tv disnt work. Froze on games. My kid did not need it. Others on plane whined. Parents fault, yes. But maybe service tv's. It was unclear how to get help."
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac waiting for a gate for an hour and a half once we arrived in Atlanta. Other than that, everything was fine."
Cons: "no electricity outlets"
Pros: "Efficient crew. It"
Cons: "It was good overall."
Pros: "United is an OK airline, but their planes are old and not comfortable, entertainment is inexistent since it has old and bad screens and everything is paid, better to have your own tablet."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable, airplanes too old, food is bad, crew members don't have the service as Asian or Middle east airlines."
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: "All of it was good."
Pros: "Overall service"
Cons: "Couldn't sell us snack during regular service (we were at front of economy cabin) and had to wait to almost end of flight."
Pros: "Free entertainment was great, but needed to download adobe flash which I recommend before getting on the flight."
Cons: "The small seats and the pay for food selection. I’ve gotten spoiled on international airlines where they provide food and drinks(alcoholic beverages too) for free."
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We stayed in the plane for a hour and a half beforehand take off. We couldn't even get some water to drink. For the love of God"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours."
Pros: "Extra legroom was good, seat were ok, and the overall improvement in general was much better than I last flew United.no"
Cons: "wifi does not work on this route. I have used it on cross Atlantic flights yet LAX to HNL didn't have it."
Pros: "We arrived safely, the captain was lighthearted."
Cons: "DRUNK seatmate, who yelled profanity and also that he was drunk several times. Not only did the crew do nothing about it, they served him 2 more drinks! Since there were no air sick bags, I took my food out of my zip lock to have something to offer him when he made retching noises (though he didn't throw up). Isn't the flight crew supposed to prevent visibly drunk people from flying?"
Cons: "The movies kept doing out. They told us to log in and get compensated in a few days"
Pros: "Nothing about this airline."
Cons: "The crew at the gate was really rude. Zero customer service. She raised her voice at us and another customer who was charged $50 for our carry on. Not only was the flight delayed for over 2 hours. We were not informed that we could not bring a carry on even when we were at the main entrance with an agent for over 30 mins when you entered the airport. All their staff needs new training everyone kept on giving us a different answer. We asked because of this delayed will our room be comp due to the fact we will be missing our connected flight. On the phone the agent said yes. When we got to the airport that agent said no. When we got on the plane that agent said no. When we landed in Denver that agent comp our room. We ended up booking a room making sure we had a place to stay at night. It created more work for us because we were trying to cancel our room took even more time. Definitely wanted to give United the benefit of the doubt that they were at least at the level of American Airlines. The last time we flew United it was delayed for 8 hours they ended up canceling the flight. When we called they said it was the weather and we told that agent it's mechanical issue because we are watching someone remove the engine. We will stick to American Airlines. Free entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and accomodating. What a great experience!!"
Cons: "I don't like this trip at all, when my mom arrive to make her check on they charge her 25 dolares for her firs baggage, when it was always free, it is not about he money it is about they didn't tell when you buy the ticket and she is 70 years old, she just have with her the necessary thats why I pay for her trip"
Pros: "Always a good fight, very short."
Pros: "Seeing as we were flying with ANA instead of United, everything was excellent, especially the crew. The food was amazing."
Cons: "there was absolutely no notfication that we were flying with ANA! I understand the flight was booked with united and you guys are part of the star partnership thing or whatever but it made finding out where to check in very stressful and time consuming! Stop overbooking your flights!"
Cons: "They over booked the flight again and wanted 4 people to volunteer to take a layer flight."
Pros: "The plane was only half full -- plenty of room!"
Cons: "Turbulence (not your fault)."
Pros: "Flight crew and ground crew are very professional."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Very professional flight crew and ground crew."
Cons: "Did not want to leave Merida."
Cons: "Flight was delayed both ways"
Pros: "the crew on the plane was pleasant and helpful. the pilot was very nice as well with made the flight smooth and delightful"
Cons: "we were not able to check in at the kiosk, it was saying that we need further assistance but wasn't giving any reason, nobody could help us with it. we were directed to different stands 3 times were people would just tell us they don't know what to do. the lines everywhere were extremely long with only 1 person working, the lady came up to the line at some point and stating assisting people in line starting from the back end of the line. That was very frustrating. she finally got to us, asked us to come up to the kiosk with her, wasn't been able to help us and then put us back in the end of the line! The lady who was able to help us in the end just said "it was just disconnected." I have no idea what it means but considering that on our way in we had to be on "standby" because the flight was overbooked. the total impressing from United is very poor."
Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and on time"
Pros: "we left right on time. It was a smooth flight and a nice aircraft. did not use entertainment so no comment there but was a good experience overall."
Pros: "One representative provided extremely nice customer service."
Cons: "All the flights were late. No food for a 4.5 hours flight."
Pros: "Now that you asked - the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The snack was adequate but I don't think very healthy. I didn't eat it on the second flight. Not sure what - the plane - wind patterns - pilot - but it was a pretty rocky flight from RDU to DEN. You should give NA as an option cause I didn't use the entertainment"
Cons: "In an effort to maximize profit you give up comfort. I bet you could charge more if it were comfortable."
Cons: "Myself and 10 others were kept from boarding as they had overbooked/overweighted the plan for the wind conditions...so i was stuck with a mini van rental as they couldn't get me another flight to my destination for 2 days so I ended up driving the 14hrs to make it home."
Cons: "Same as above, including late flight"
Pros: "Enter system has good content and fair price."
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and generally grumpy. The flight was delayed due to maintenance ( UAL issue). There was no acknowledgement or apology for the delay."
Pros: "Our flight was leaving very late, but we were able to rebook on an American flight that left a few hours later from Denver so we didn't miss our connection."
Cons: "It was verrrrry cold on the planes!"
Pros: "I wish I would have caught her name but the staff member at the boarding gate was fabulous! She is someone I would want representing my company."
Cons: "The wafer served with the beverage & my seat assignment stunk."
Cons: "Had to gate check bag both ways. Flight extremely delayed on way home causing me to miss connection; minimal communication from gate crew. A complimentary drink included a Dixie cup full of soda."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 9 times with 9 different gate changes. I was supposed to arrive by 10PM and didn't land until 2 AM."
Pros: "Both flights were early, which was nice for a change."
Cons: "The crew did not seem to enjoy their jobs and can the seats get any more uncomfortable? It really is okay to put some padding in the seat cushions. Is it really necessary to charge for the movies?"
