"once again everything from the boarding process to in-flight service was impeccable."

Pros: "excellent crew, helped me through my nerves about flying"
Cons: "would have loved to sit upstairs in the bar area."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Was able to switch to an open row dubai to jfk. Nice crew..good food..veggie choices."
Cons: "Jfk-mia..held for gate 1 hr.."

Pros: "Food was good but served in a unorganized manner, drinks and food was not sequentially served as normally."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not polite and difficult to understand. They closed two of the lavatories for themselves. I’m not impressed with Emirates."

Pros: "crew responding to the request, supportive"
Cons: "food was just ok, not excellent. movie selection was not really top notch, just so-so..."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. The food was excellent.the seats was comfortable."
Cons: "The whole boarding process was lengthy and totally unnecessary with the extra steps"

Cons: "Only one person in a three row and it was a great flight"

Pros: "Inflight entertainment was superb, catering in main cabin was also excellent. The crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Main cabin seats were definitely better than other airlines, but still not the most comfortable for 8+ hours."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No need for improvement"

Cons: "Kids food. Chairs weren't comfortable until I reclined it back. Felt like I was bending forward when in the upright position."

Cons: "Food could be tastier. But, you can’t starve"

Cons: "Vegan food was served with BUTTER how can this be vegan? NEED MORE Healthy options instead of Pan cakes etc made of Enriched Flour... Upgrades have become.alsmost nil. Emirates is making a huge profit but is not sharing with its passengers... had to wait one whole hour to get our baggage"

Cons: "It was good service by emirates"

Cons: "Requested an aisle seat at the front or an emergency seat and got neither. I could hardly move my long legs. That the flight was long did not help matters. I was sandwiched between two other travelers on a three-seater arrangement. Again, is it just on flights to Kenya or other African countries that passengers DO NOT receive the travel pouch?"

Cons: "The plane is great but the young gentlemen next to me is 300lb+(my best guest He's at least 6'2" possibly in his teen or early 20s) Don't get me wrong but to sit in coach for 14 hours with him in the middle seat is kind of a nightmare. Half of the way we all went to a bathroom and I don't blame him but the bathroom must be to small to clean up himself for I have to sit with feces smell for the rest of the flight. Imagine that. This is my second leg of this long flight from BKK to NYC. The first leg to dubai is horrible enough but this one top that by far!!!!"

Cons: "Food was bland, repetitive (poor choice and variety) Crew was unwelcoming. Had to ask multiple times for water, soda and also take away plates I have travelled emirates before so this flight was bad compared to previous experiences"

Pros: "Seating space in the plane"
Cons: "The crew was quite rude. My flight got cancelled and the next day there was no veg food in the flight. It’s a 14 hour flight for god’s Sake!"

Cons: "I am a 76 yr old traveller, did not get the change in flight schedule until I booked my flight. I was at Dubai airport for over 12 hours waited for the 3AM flight that took another 14 hours. Very stressful and tiring. There was not even a proper accommodation for this very long wait between flights. This experience will be told to all my friends and trust me it will be a very bad, negative endorsement."

Cons: "Very noisy for passengers sitting by crew area. Crew seats were used very frequently and every time it opened and closed it slammed waking up passengers."

Pros: "Beautiful aircraft flight attendants speak 19 languages additional leg room fabulous entertainment"
Cons: "only had jetblue as partner and when my flight had to be changed it presented a huge problem- they need more US partnerships to provide better options"

Pros: "Loved the service. My flight was from NYC to Milan."
Cons: "There was not one thing."

Pros: "On time, entertainment good crew"
Cons: "Food was bland"

Pros: "Everything except boarding and internet"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic they need to have better communications... it was a free for all! I did not at all like the way they make you think you are getting free wifi but in reality it's a hoax!"

Cons: "I've never flown Emirates and boarding section of the trip was very confusing. There was no audible instructions and they used flip-boards to indicate which group should be boarding. It was very difficult to see the flip-boards since the attendants holding them up were around 5'2". All was well once i got on the plane."

Pros: "Choice of movies was good"
Cons: "Changed flights in Dubai but there were not enough or easy directions. Could not hear boarding announcements due to announcement issues. Crew who served were rude and not useful most time, except couple of crew members. Ear phone not working, took a while after asking to get new one. Food was cold and poor - did not have second bite on most food. Crew serving was as if they were in training (must be) Cramped seat, which did not recline much, which was unusual for Emirates. Glad to be out of that plane."

Pros: "customer service of crew was good."
Cons: "there were many who were selected for extra screening (code SSS) this process added a great amount of confusion (without any communication) we were screened and put in an isolation area where we were not allowed to leave or use a bathroom. We were there for over one hour. at one point, we were moving into a long tube like structure where we stayed for at least 30 minutes while others were boarding from an different ramp. the communication was non existent and we were made to feel like prisoners. actually, we were prisoners."

Pros: "For starters, the seats were decently comfortable. They were wide, and offered generous legroom. The food was good: an unbelievable improvement from the previous flight (I recommend the chicken). The ICE system was impeccable. It had a wide selection of movies, TV shows, and games as well as access to the news. However, the flight's greatest perk my have been the compassionate crew. They were very helpful and friendly. They offered many accommodations, like a pizza and photo, all for free. Overall, the flight went very well."
Cons: "Although I enjoyed the flight, the only bad part was the boarding process. To start off, the departure in Milan was delayed for about 45 minutes. Also, when boarding finally began, the line was extremely long and moved very slowly. That was the only event that marred the flight to JFK."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Leg space on time"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Front legs little short"

Pros: "Efficient, clean, friendly"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment and food was enjoyable. Overall service of the crew was excellent."
Cons: "I flew from Singapore to New York with a 1 hour 15 minute layover in Dubai. Passengers with layovers were instructed to be at the next gate 45 minutes in advance of boarding. This was seemingly impossible and cause myself and many other passengers severe anxiety running through the airport. The first flight landed 10 minutes late in Gate C, took another 10-15 minutes to off board, at which point we were held by a flight attendant who later guided us to get on a bus to take us between terminal A and C. The entire trip between gates was approximately 30 minutes and we inexplicably had to pass through security 3 times during the layover. It seemed poorly organized and myself and other passengers just made the second flight before the doors closed."

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."

Pros: "Better plane with much better entertainment system. Decent food. Once I had missed my connecting flight because of the flight delay, they promptly arranged for a hotel to stay at, as there wasnt another flight to NYC for 12 hrs. Otherwise I would have been really pissed."
Cons: "First time I have had mediocre crew on an emirates flight. The guy serving my section was not particularly friendly, had a bit of an attitude problem and spent a little too much time chatting up an attractive female passenger. Again, disorganized boarding process. First time I have experienced such terrible service on emirates."

Pros: "Very good airline with professional stafff and much better comfort than most other airlines"
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I didn't even eat on the return flight."

Pros: "I liked the customer service, entertainment, flight Attendants, food and everything that Emirates has to offer! I felt like I was in first class while in coach!!!"
Cons: "The duration of the flight was extremely long and that made me uncomfortable and it was hard to sleep."

Pros: "Nice flight"
Cons: "time delay at Dubai Airport"

Pros: "The attendants were great at keeping the cabin clean and were very goo with the kids. Loads of activities and unexpected surprises that really pleased my kids."
Cons: "More regular offerings of drinks."

Pros: "See above. Great airline all around. We travel a lot and overall it is one of the two best in the world on almost all counts."
Cons: "For large number of passengers, boarding is impossibly slow. I don't understand why, after boarding the priority passengers, airline don't board the rest of us from the back of the plane to the front. Doing it the other way makes us stumble across the front seated passengers who are busy stowing their carry-ones. This causes a bottleneck in boarding. Also, there are too many checks on us, which also slows things down. Also, Emirates advertises: one carry-on item of less than 15 pounds. On this flight I would say that at least 75% of the passengers violated this with large and multiple carry-ons. This is unfair to those of us who try to go by the rules."

Pros: "Emirates has a great reputation, and now I've experienced first hand why that is! Great (complimentary!) food and beverages, clean comfortable seats, generous luggage policies, and impressive customer service. The crew on our flight represented 19 different countries and spoke a total of 19 different different languages. The woman ahead of me was very unpleasant about her screen not working, and every attendant she spoke to was infinitely polite and pleasant. They tried to reset her screen, and eventually found an empty seat and moved her to first class!"
Cons: "Only that I can't take an Emirates airbus for all of my flights! I was detained for awhile during boarding because I was chosen to have my carry-on bag checked, and it took awhile because I had filled a water bottle after passing through security and it took some discussion before being approved (my husband didn't know where I was and had already boarded and was worried)."

Pros: "Food and staff service"
Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Outstanding, professional, courteous, and highly capable staff; beautiful plane; extremely tasty food; generous beverage offerings; smooth flight, including take-off and landing. Kudos to the entire crew and to the Emirates Airline organization."
Cons: "The seats were very comfortable, but the leg room was inadequate."

Pros: "The food was good."
Cons: "The bathrooms were dirty and some of the staff were unprofessional. they dropped food boxes and trays on passengers including me."

Pros: "Emirates defines economy class .. No one else comes close"

Pros: "Friendly staff and variety of entertainment"
Cons: "Everything was good."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "The seats are roomy in economy and the food and drink service is very nice. The entertainment offered is extensive."
Cons: "I was in 70G and there was a very difficult family next to me. It was not the crew's fault but it made the trip very uncomfortable for me..."

Pros: "Our company has used emirates in the past ( business class) ..this flight was a last minute decision so was booked in economy. We had seats in row 52 BC - a bulkhead outside the mid galley ....it was an incredible experience to watch the crew start eating from containers, peeling apples and making salads from a plastic bag before the passengers were served. The flight attendants when not eating were taking selfies ...so much for the "emirates experience. The curtain was drawn once for about 15 minutes between our seats and tghe galley area. I was so amazed at the lack of professionalism and the amount of food consumed by the attendants I took photos of the constantly stuffing food in their moths and then trying to speak to passengers."
Cons: "See above comments."

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: "screen, ubs charger"
Cons: "be more careful with luggage; 8 flights on this trip and it would be this last one that my luggage cover was lost, and it wasn't a cheap one."

Pros: "It was our first time flying on Qantas. everything was above expectations."

Pros: "Very friendly crew, and super comfy flat bed in business class."
Cons: "On this occasion, Qantas delivered the goods!"

Pros: "Same as previous answer!"

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Not enough toilets - always a queue. More leg room."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."

Pros: "Crew were generally friendly."
Cons: "Food was appalling. Told I had no choice and then what I got was inedible. Wine selection very small also. Two toilets for all of Business Class - always busy, super small and really substandard."

Pros: "Pillows were comfy, seats reclined to a comfy position"

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"

Cons: "747 not as pleasant or spacious as A380"

Pros: "All the services"

Cons: "Service in the cabin was very bad all the staff look lost they had no idea what the wher doing like first day on the job with no training"

Cons: "Arrogance of the crew"

Pros: "The wide selection of free movies and TV shows. The food is tasty!"
Cons: "Our first flight to LAX was delayed by 7 hours so we spent the day in Sydney airport, spending more money on meals that hadn’t been planned. Because of the delay, we missed our connecting flight from LAX to JFK. The flight we were re-booked on was also delayed for mechanical/paperwork issues so we arrived back home in NYC 8 hours later than originally scheduled. This caused us to spend more money on a taxi since it was too late to take public transportation. it also made it difficult to settle back in at home because both my husband and I had to get up early for work the next day and we missed several hours of unpacking and cooking time we would have had had our flight not been delayed."

Pros: "*Our flight from LA to Melbourne on January 7th was cancelled. Fortunately, Qantas crew members were able to place us on an American Airlines flight to JFK the very same day."

Pros: "Economy seats were comfy."
Cons: "Food was terrible! Literally inedible."

Pros: "Mobile checkin, e-boarding pass, straight to the gate!"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "This was the plane flown to and from Brisbane apparently. It's one of the oldest in their fleet. The economy seats were significantly smaller than our flight from Melbourne and the premium economy and business were not as nice either. Really. It comfortable. Crew weren't super friendly but were very professional."

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."

Cons: "Crew service was disgraceful"

Pros: "Getting through airport at Sydney was nice and easy, and good overall at JFK."
Cons: "LAX was not an easy navigation from terminal to terminal, as there was little info provided in flight and a serious lack of good signage or information booths at the airport."

Cons: "The delay was just disappointing"

Pros: "Overall, one of the best international flying experiences I have ever had."

Pros: "Crew was kind, food was good"
Cons: "Very little legroom"

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: "Great service. Perfect flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working at my seat"

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: "The crew in the ground and plane were very accommodating for Sydney to New York flight."
Cons: "On the flight from New York to Sydney the crew were rude and indifferent to needs even condescending."

Pros: "Fortunately for me my wife had to cancel her return flight in the last minute so seat was ok"
Cons: "Type of seats not comfortable. Even MD380 seats were better"

Cons: "tv monitor didn't work well."

Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, plenty of snacks and drinks Good range of entertainment options"
Cons: "One of seats did not recline with button-push, but cabin crew instructed us on the use of the manual adjustment, so it worked out OK in the end. We flew Premier Economy on the LA-SYD outgoing trip; the main difference for our SYD-LA return in Economy was the presence of a 3rd seat in our row occupied by a stranger, so bathroom breaks were a bit of a disturbance for all involved. Still you get what you pay for I guess!"

Pros: "Received official flight delayed notice by email. New takeoff time 9:00 AM....Actual closer to 9:30. Caused by waiting for flight QF11 from Sydney and mechanical issues or something else which caused JFK passengers from another flight to be put aboard QF11 continuation to JFK. Turbulent air most of the way to JFK, no fault of Qantas. However pilot made no effort to avoid it or was not allowed to go to another flight level. In any event no communication from Capt. Food was mediocre at best. Cabin crew was getting beaten up by turbulence. They did the best they could. Arm rest USB power receptacle broke and headphone jack faulty (60C)."

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: "Despite very difficult and stressing transfer process and delay of connecting flight for 1 hour, we arrived on time to JFK. The crew was very nice. The food was good."
Cons: "The time for transfer was absolutely not sufficient, because there were long lines everywhere, no signs where to go next. Only at the end of a very long way there was a representative of Quantas to show us the way. We were very nervous because of uncertainty and came late to the gate. Then it turned out that there were many people behind us. The plane was waiting for them for about an hour. Finally, everybody came. It would be much more logical, if from the beginning the connecting flight to JFK was postponed to some more appropriate time."

Cons: "Bags got lost. Not enough time for connection at LAX ."

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."

Pros: "Crew and foodnostfing"
Cons: "Boarding unorganized."

Pros: "Again, top quality service and support from all qantas employees. Good was yum also! And the Rv made time go by fast."

Pros: "Crew service."
Cons: "Seating place."

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."

Cons: "Special food was very bad. It smells."

Cons: "The flight boarded 30 mins after it said it would on the boarding pass, and then was delayed further by an ill passenger. We ended up leaving about 60-90 minutes late."

Pros: "They still serve free food and beverages, even on cross country flights. There were plenty of movie choices to keep us occupied."

Pros: "Should have put me on one of the Qantas flights that left sooner, no explanation, no compensation."

Cons: "Was not the original scheduled flight."

Pros: "I was able to make a connection without too much hassle"
Cons: "I had a economy plus flight booked and should have been on a Qantas from LA to JFK but due to delays I was put on an AA flight and downgraded to economy. I could have just as easily been upgraded to business - you chose not to do that."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendants were more interested in socializing with each other than working. More interested in talking about what they were going to do in NY. They were not neatly dressed as compared to others Quantas crew members on other flights, before our meal was served they were eating rolls before serving us. Changing flights was a mess, getting your bags, going though customs, picking up bags and having to go so far in the airport to go check in again was disorganized. Food was not good, fish was fishy, worst meal in three weeks of traveling off and on plans in and out of AU."

"Not sure why we left 50 min late after together boarded the plane ….. we taxied around for 35 min ans SFO isn’t that big"

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."

Cons: "Flight attendant crushed my backpack"

Pros: "Smooth travels"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Crew was above and beyond. Really helpful and kind."

Cons: "We had a 3 hour delay."

Pros: "t7 at LAX was a much improved experience. Crew were attentive and friendly and did a great overall job."
Cons: "Tiny, and hard, seats"

Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Only a couple delays."
Cons: "The ease of travel."

Pros: "The entertainment interface and selection was fantastic!"
Cons: "Minor, but an arm rest would not stay up. Also, let's face it, the food food is never excellent, rarely good, but understandably hard to make so."

Pros: "Round trips from FRA to DME were great. Round trip from SFO to FRA was okay. It's time for United Airlines upgrade planes."
Cons: "United Airlines needs to upgrade its planes."

Pros: "Very courteous service, frequent snacks, free in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Long wait at SFO on tarmack for gait to become available on arrival."

Pros: "Despite a slight delay in take off the flight landed on time; crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Couldn't get a seat assignment until I arrived at the gate; boarding was slow and a little disorganized; seats are small"

Cons: "Good"

Cons: "PA system was painfully too loud."

Pros: "The crew was hospitable and friendly. They helped me get to my seat and were very effiecient during their food service."
Cons: "As soon as we boarded, the told us that the wifi was unavailable throughout the flight."

Pros: "The crew was very kind and welcoming all smiles and very good mood. The plane was clean and nice."
Cons: "No pillows for sleep, a/c was VERY poor. Hardly any air was coming out, I was sweating the entire flight. I hate that there are no screens."

Pros: "Everything was fine on the flight. Crew was friendly, entertainment options were good and free beer and wine on international flights."
Cons: "Of course the food was awful and the boarding area, 125 to be exact was a complete mess. They try to separate 5 groups in 1 small corner with seating and the counter in the way. Total and mass chaos"

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: "Movie selection was good. crew were fast and helpful."
Cons: "Phone/tablet holder was not working with iPhone 5s size."

Cons: "Very long walk from aircraft to immigration"

Pros: "It was on time and a little early"
Cons: "I had to pay to watch any movies which I didn't and service was aloof."

Pros: "There was a storm coming but they were able to get us out and landed before the storm hit so that we arrived on time. The flight attendants were also great."
Cons: "The pilot was a bit rude about overhead baggage. I was one of the passengers that had to check my bag before boarding which was fine, but it seemed like I walked onto a stressful plane situation where the pilot's tone sounded irritated with the passengers who put their smaller bags overhead instead of underneath. If it's that big of an issue, then I would suggest getting the flight attendants to suggest helping passengers to put smaller bags underneath and if they don't want to so be it. It just made me uncomfortable because the pilot had to come over the speaker and say something about it multiple times."

Cons: "Flight cancelled and no alternative to deal with cancelled flight"

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 flight left an hour and thirty minutes late so I missed my connecting flight now I'm stuck in the airport overnight NEVER FLYING UNITED AGAIN"

Pros: "That we got to Little Rock early"
Cons: "I had ordered ginger rail and the lady brought me a Diet Coke I told her I don't like Diet Coke because I don't drink Coke and she said I thought that's what you want it now you have to hold onto it until they come back and pick up the trash and she never brought me the ginger rail to drink she walked away and I never drank nothing on the flight back to Little Rock that lady was so rude"

Cons: "It's 2.5 hours past our scheduled departure time and we're still sitting at the gate"

Pros: "Entertainment could not be turned off, so there was a moving screen all the time. Selection poor. Could not access flight info. Could only watch at specific times. Seat had a hard lump very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Put the luggage on the wrong flight. We ended up waiting at the airport at our final destination for four hours (1:30am) while our bags arrived on a different flight. VERY frustrating."

Cons: "Boarding was late, then, after boarding, we were advised leaving was delayed due to no fuel service available, then other problems arouse, over all, we sat at the gate for over 2 hours before take off."

Cons: "Got delayed and flights cancelled with very little information or assistance from united to help solve the problem. Finally transferred to American Airlines and had a much better experience"

Pros: "I had a fall over Thanksgiving weekend and needed extra help. The staff and crew were super helpful."

Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"

Pros: "Bigger plane more smooth ride the pizza was excellent"
Cons: "The running to the next plane in 15 min because of the delay the landing was hard"

Pros: "As a devoted southwest fan, My experience on United was a pleasant one. Friendly crew, nice updated plane. Seems like United is truly seeking customer satisfaction and realize the airline business requires customer service and care!"
Cons: "Seats are still pretty small and tight!"

Pros: "Iam 53 not i to electronics much and to have no movue or music on the second longer flight is assinine most of the people o.n brd didnt have anything to do for the price i might as well just flown spirt and saved money"
Cons: "By removi g all inflyte movie and no hot food and no music your getting like Spirit. But cost alot more maby i need to go to them and just bring some food iam not electronics guy and most around me werent but a AM flight over 2 hrs should serve bot foid as well as a movie or at least have music to listen to"

Pros: "The flight attendant finally took care of it after I complained a couple of times."
Cons: "That you changed our seats, and, that there was no room in any of the overhead bins. So, the flight attendant told me that I needed to fight my way through the people coming toward me back up the aisle and check every overhead bin all the way back up to see if there was room for my one suitcase. Others had brought more than one bag up there. Finally they checked my one carry on bag. The ride was also really bumpy, worst that we've ever experienced. But that was due to weather conditions."

Cons: "I spent 4 hours waiting for a connecting flight the scheduled wait was 45 min"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and the most surprising was the leg room. I am 6'1" and it really helped. Food was average, have had way better on other aircraft carriers."
Cons: "No charging point. Tray was not working properly. The entertainment screen was difficult to use. The touch screen was very difficult to use."

Pros: "Because my flight was delayed for three hour from Pittsburgh to Chicago and sit there for eight hours until my next flight to Sacramento and I was not happy"

Cons: "Very poor customer service"

Pros: "The cabins was remarkably clean and the pilot on the second leg was very entertaining, pointing out landmarks."
Cons: "The video selection on the second leg."

Pros: "Wifi on flight"

Cons: "Need to find a way for kayak to streamline the entry of tsa precheck info prior to flight."

Cons: "Getting home late after an already long travel day."

Pros: "ontime"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."

Cons: "Very nice friendly service, keep up the good work."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything costs money on top of the tickets I purchased. To compete with other airlines they are going to have to start including food, baggage, and entertainment for free especially on international flights."
