Air New Zealand leave Qantas for dead
No cleaners available Luggage screwed up Entertainment not working Only 1 toilet for full capacity economy class Other locked off Over an hour late arrival

Pros: "Crew was very professional and willing to help"
Cons: "Selection of movies not that great when you spend 14 hours sitting on a chair for that long you expect at least to have some good movies to watch ... that was a let down. Also everytime they served us food it seemed lime yhey didnt have enough of the choices we were given as the crew had run out of our choices all the time making choose things we didnt lie"

Pros: "Friendly customer service crew, nice amenities kit, and quick boarding."
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: "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: "Got away on time and landed early."
Cons: "Boarding pass scanners broken - so couldn't scan from a phone. And then the boarding pass printer wasn't working properly either. Also these planes are very noisy."
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: "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."
Pros: "Was able to quickly check in and get through security. The front counter staff were friendly and efficient. Minimal waiting to board."
Cons: "The plane was filthy. My seat was sticky and covered in what appeared to be food of some sort. Flight attendant wiped it off, but it wasn't clean by any means. The seat belts were twisted and had food and crud stuck to them. When I changed my clothes the next day, there was food and stains on my black pants from where I sat on the dirty seats."
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: "Everything, the crew, the service, the amenities."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about, it was a great flight."
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: "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: "Typical airline food. Nothing else to complain about."
Pros: "The crew were cheery, helpful and professional."
Cons: "In economy, space is an issue, still feels cramped"
Cons: "Nothing. Probably the best airline flown"
Pros: "The crew were really very good kind and could not have done more. I have crew members who are patients of mine and I know the stress they undergo and I wa actually very proud of the crew in my section of the aircraft"
Cons: "Not applicable"
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: "Very friendly crew. Comfortable flight."
Pros: "waited for us. We were late from Yuma"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No real headrests on the seats. Not very comfortable."
Cons: "The head phone jacks were loose so watching a movie was extremely difficult. The aisle is so small you can’t even walk down it without bumping people who are seated. It seemed like none of the crew wanted to be there."
Cons: "The flight attendants were friendly, watched a movie, thanks for the ear buds to listen to the movie. There was a lot of turbulence but I feel our pilot managed it very well bringing us in safely and smoothly as possible. I can't think of anything that could have been improved on."
Pros: "Nice stewards"

Pros: "Good crew"

Cons: "Inflight Wifi was spotty"

Pros: "Good service in-flight. Pretty comfortable seats and decent in-flight food/beverage options."
Cons: "Crew was slamming overhead compartments before take-off and would ignore questions from passengers. Late take-off, very late gate change and late arrival. No help from crew on the plan to get bags taken care of so boarding took forever."
Pros: "Nothing - except getting my seat upgraded from the 'claustrophobic zone'."
Cons: "Having to wait 5 hours for the flight as my FRA to DFW flight arrived late. I had been up over 26 hours already and was struggling to stay awake prior to the flight. (My day didn't end until I'd been up more than 32 hours.) Crew from the late arriving flight should have announced the connecting flight delay well before landing at DFW. The flight should have been held for 20 minutes, as it appeared that the majority of the passengers affected were able to clear customs and arrive at the gate in time. Headphone jack had a very poor connection. Plane was dirty."
Cons: "We still haven’t left Dayton."
Pros: "Crew was nice and professional."
Cons: "Freezing, one hour wait on the tarmac before takeoff meant one hour delayed arrival. No TVs in seats, no meals on six hour flight."
Cons: "Had terrible seats with no reclines and near the bathroom. They charge extra for better seats, they should offer something in return for below average seats."
Pros: "The pilot was very apologetic about being delayed but we were able to catch the flight because it was delayed for about more than 2 hours."
Cons: "It was cold in the beginning of the flight. We were delayed at the first flight and when we got to the gate there were no one available at the gate to check us in. We had to go to customer service to get on board."
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and efficient. Everything was on time."
Cons: "Cramped seats with zero leg room."
Pros: "Got to see The Shape of Water from DFW to PDX in advance of the Oscars! Nice clear image and sound. Thanks American, you've upped your game from a few years back!"

Cons: "The wait at the customer service counter in the terminal at LAX."
Pros: "I like how quick and efficient the boarding and check in process was."

Pros: "I slept the entire duration."
Cons: "This was the coldest plane I've ever been on and they didn't offer blankets for their passengers or turn down the AC. I asked for a blanket and they told me they'd provide me with one and never got back to me. They ignored me the rest of the flight. Shame on them for not providing something so standard as a blanket."
Cons: "The flight was delayed little by little up to two hours then finally we board the plane, everyone is seated and then they cancel the flight."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Decent communication during delay of previous flight (delay of 4+ hours), friendly and helpful crew on the delayed flight."
Cons: "Dirty plane. I had to clean my own seat with a wet wipe and some paper towels. Previous AA flight delayed by 4+ hours causing a missed connection."
Pros: "Flight attendants were polite and friendly during beverage and snack service Seats were clean and recently reupholstered"
Cons: "Two people got removed from the flight for seemingly no particular reason prior to departure, and looked quite unhappy although there were no strong words. Very small seat pitch Long delays for maintenance and runway Annoying ads for AA credit card over the intercom prior to landing No USB ports"
Pros: "Comfortable first class seats for a regional airline, although no food or entertainment. Flight attendants were great, very friendly and they checked up on us often. On time departure and early arrival. American Airlines has always been great for me. Will be back"
Cons: "No food in first class, but it was only a 2 hr flight on a regional"
Pros: "Flight was moved from Philadelphia to Dalllas...no problem"
Cons: "scanty food from Dallas to Porltand"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between."
Cons: "I think this was the most cramped airplane I have been on. It was so uncomfortable and I would think that they would take this into consideration since it was a red eye flight."
Pros: "I got there safe and there was some entertainment"
Cons: "seats small and not real comfortable."
Pros: "The trip was on time and with no issues flying. I really enjoyed the ability to watch a movie...this was AWESOME!"
Cons: "Wow, the seating was VERY tight and I was happy for the TV screen in front of me to keep me busy. All the inflight interruptions on the movie I was watching."
Pros: "All connections-smooth"
Pros: "We did not take this flight when its schedule was moved back, instead taking one LHR-SEA that would get us home at a reasonable hour."
Cons: "The change by British Air in flight departure/arrival times. The resulting adjustment was costly and we were unable to get "extra" seating on the long leg of the trip by the time we were notified of the changes."
Cons: "There is no legroom in coach. I am six foot seven and my knees cram against the seat in front of me to the point my legs go numb."
Pros: "No individual screens to watch. Get with the times for long flights !"
Cons: "I don't know if I need to contact american airlines directly or what. But this is the 3rd flight that has been delayed with no reason given or for whatever the reason was tonight. Its obsurd. I booked a flight on Alaska Airlines specifically because american airlines had the issue of delays. Then come to find out, the flight WASN'T on Alaska...but its affiliate. It would be really nice to get some answers."
Pros: "We moved due to job change and American would not work with us to Change a reservation."
Pros: "Wrong airline, sent me to wrong gate, almost missed the flight. If I wasn't lucky enough to need a wheelchair, I would probably still be in Phx! Not happy at all, to say the least. I had to grease the palms of about 7 different wheelchair pushers. A bad day all around."
Cons: "our flight was delayed, and no other options"
Pros: "On schedule and met all my expectations."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "My luggage was lost!!! People were sympathetic but no apologies or compensation Also, we were forced to pay extra for our seats before we were able to print boarding passes. My husband and I were not able to sit together which was upsetting to me."
Pros: "Nothing unexpected happened"
Cons: "Narrow seats . No plug in for music or phone .. Bare minimum for same cost as better flight"
Cons: "Booked flights together yet sat apart.. kid kicking back of away just uncomfortable"
So much delays! The head flight attendent was rude to everybody.
I have never been on an AC flight that left on time. Very little inflight service, at least in coach. For example, one beverage service in 5 hour flight (and they didn’t even offer water while we were waiting on the plane for over an hour to take off). You have to pay for everything, and wifi doesn’t work well unless you pay for the fastest speed.
When getting off the plane in the rain umbrellas should have been provided, the cost is next to nothing and means a good customer service.
Cons: "Would've been better if Air Canada had not downgraded the land to a propeller plane!"
Cons: "Good food. Best airline I’ve traveled besides Southwest. First international flight and the crew was so nice and professional!"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine and the crew was excellent. The boarding process was efficient."
Cons: "My center seat, which was assigned, put me in an extremely uncomfortable position physically for the entire 14 hour flight. My two seatmates extended physically into my space, and minimal legroom meant by knees were pressed against the seat in front. I was not happy at the lack of seat choice."
Cons: "Embarked late. Sat on runway for 30 minutes waiting to disembark. Missed ride to Eugene Or. Not happy."
Cons: "We had a two hour delay. First the aircraft was late. Then it needed repair and another aircraft had to be brought up. After a 10 flight from Frankfurt and a 3 hour layover in Vancouver, I was not a happy camper!"
Pros: "Crew was helpful in answering questions"
Cons: "The only food served was a pay option only."
Pros: "90 minutes"
Cons: "90 minutes"
Pros: "Flight was mercifully short."
Cons: "Air Canada canceled other short haul flights and jammed the overflow passengers onto our flight which resulted in our flight being late and overcrowded. Passengers that came from the canceled flight complained that this wasn't the first time Air Canada had done this."
Pros: "Airfare is very reasonable. Food on the planes are average. Service is average."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from Vancouver to Portland"
Pros: "A short flight on a small plane.Smooth flight, smooth, smooth landing. Although the flight was delayed, the passengers were kept informed as to where the plane was and the expected time of departure."
Pros: "The leg room in basic economy was great -- especially compared to other airlines. In seat entertainment was free."
Cons: "No complimentary snack on a five-hour flight. Food was available for fee. Entertainment movie/TV programming was limited (not live television)."
Cons: "Because of the delayed flight out of Lisbon I missed this flight and was rerouted to Vancouver. I had to go through customs and re enter the airport going through security to board the Vancouver fligh. Slept in a hotel for four hours, paid for by Air Canada, went back to the airport through security again and flew to Portland."
Cons: "Air Canada offers this flight DAILY. Yet somehow the boarding was the most excruciating tedious I’ve had to endure. Passengers who needed assistance boarding seemed to have to deal with haphazard organisation, and the fact that they seemed surprised so many people brought carry-on luggage that the bins filled up is laughable. Changed my return flight to Alaska Air."
Cons: "I did not make this flight. Instead was re-routed and spent 12 hours overnight in the Vancouver airport before getting to fly to Portland, without my luggage that was left behind in Toronto."
Cons: "I was held back for 'random' security check. Security lost my boarding pass and didn't care. Only found it because my friend asked them to check a table where they had put it. They didn't apologize for any inconvenience and instead security chief kept asking more questions. Truly atrocious customer service."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "ONE bathroom for all of economy Had to buy even smallest snacks Poor overhead bin space"
Cons: "There was one announcement about preboarding and none after that -- only one announcement about delay of 20 minutes but we were more than an Hour late boarding. That was 1st impression. Then, when we got on the plane, it was very old so made me worry about safety."
Cons: "The entertainment system was broken on this flight."
Pros: "Good price for flight ticket"
Cons: "Customs detained my girlfriend and I for an hour causing us to supposedly miss our flight. We spoke to a Air Canada Rep and they told us our flight had left and they couldn't hold it for us. That is fine but they said they would not provide us with a hotel for missing this. Ok that is there policy but we ran to the terminal E95, for our Flight to Portland which had actually had not left and they were actually holding it for another person. So Air Canada lied about our flight leaving and that there was not another one till the next day. Overall I will never go to this airport nor will I use Air Canada ever again."
Cons: "The flight attendants were jerks. Why can't I listen to my headphones before takeoff? Because of the safety speech? Are deaf people not allowed to fly? I was asked to take my headphones off during the safety speech, which I did. I put them back on after the speech and was yelled at. The lady in front of me had a dog. The lady across from me was talking on her cell phone. And the kids behind me were playing games on their iPad with no headphones and the sound on. No one said anything to them. Screw this airline."
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Pros: "Nice friendly staff in plane, and experienced staff at airport (unlike in Okinawa, Tokyo and Osaka). Nice to be able to recheck bags and clear US customs in Vancouver, BC thanks to the US section of the terminal, so that we didn't have to do that upon arrival in Portland."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "One of the attendants yelled at anyone who needed to use the bathroom whenever the seatbelt sign was on. Understandable when the plane was actually experiencing turbulence but most of the time it was a smooth flight. Know there are regulations concerning this but I feel she could have been a bit nicer in her tone. Thankfully there was an empty seat just outside the toilet so that I could sit but anyone who arrived after me was told to return to their seat. When nature calls, sometimes it's impossible to walk very far."
Cons: "I needed to sleep ( it was 1:00 am in the city I originated from) and in the smaller plane the seats barely reclined and it was hard to get comfortable, let alone sleep."
Pros: "I was last on the plane. The crew was welcoming."
Cons: "Not very clean bathroom. Not unusual for airplanes."
Cons: "To small of plane."
Cons: "My girlfriend and I booked our flights about 10 months in advance and had selected seats next to each other for all of our Air Canada Flights. Somehow all of these seats were changed without an update to us. We did not sit together at all on any of our flights and were put in middle seats, which is not what we originally requested. We were both very upset with this as some of these were long flights."
Cons: "My flight from Milan was 1 1/2 hr late but before landing it was announced that our seats on the connecting flight was "protected". I got to my gate 40 min. before takeoff (it was 15 min. delayed). Upon boarding I was told my seat was given away. They assumed I would miss my flight. I had to wait another 4 hr. to board a flight to Vancouver BC leaving 11pm. I had to go to a hotel at 2 am and take a 8:50 am flight to PDX. Before boarding I was again stopped because my ticket didn't have the proper security stamp. The agent there was extremely rude and condescending. This was a terrible experience!"
Pros: "Price and crew were good. comfortable enough."
Cons: "No decent place to eat in the airport and no food options on the flight.Also it was an hour delayed."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. We got here safely. That's good."
Cons: "1 bathroom for long flight. Ridiculous. Very tight and uncomfortable seats. No pillows, blankets, food and drink service only 1 time in long flight and all food is purchased. Basically, an exercise in human torture for 5+ hours. Should not be permissible to treat people this way."
Pros: "Staff VERY professional. Very easy to use food voucher."
Cons: "Mechanical Issues. Made to wait 4 hours for alternative plane."
Pros: "I'm glad Air Canada took appropriate precautions to ensure our safety, however..."
Cons: "On the flight from Portland to Vancouver, someone was allowed to board the plane and then leave, with no explanation, no accompaniment, and no way of contacting him. Consequently, our flight was delayed 3 hours while police and bomb squads checked the plane and all the baggage. Why was this person allowed to disembark in the first place? This occurred during boarding, so there should have been attendants there to stop him or at least ask him where he was going. And once he did disembark, why was no one able to track where he went? Seems like an odd security breach and, ultimately, a huge inconvenience for the passengers who remained on the plane."
Pros: "- On-time departure, attentive staff and good selection of entertainment to pass 5 hours of travel time - Love the pre-boarding for families with kids - Good overheard space for carry-on bags - flight was not way overbooked and no one had to scramble for space"
Cons: "- Narrow leg room - relaxing in the economy class was challenging (but not surprising experience)"
Pros: "Wow these guys balance MANY flight changes and seat changes with professional and humor that all the passengers appreciated"
Pros: "Air Canada worked hard to get people where they needed to be but security was somewhat difficult although understandable"
Cons: "The final leg of our travel boarded over 2 hours late. No compensation given for that. Two planes were declared not fly worthy-low confidence. While not Air Canada's responsibility, Toronto's Pearson Airport was awful. We went through many airports on our travels and this stood out as the worst. Constant security checks that seemed unnecessary. Poor line management. Not enough security/immigration kiosks. Very expensive food. During our 2+hour delay for boarding, we observed constant gate changes for other flights. Flight organization seems poor."
Pros: "That this flight had entertain system that was on broad. Did not have to down load or use your horrible app."
Cons: "You should provide food or snacks for flights over 2hours with no charge. We were only offered a drink. Some people do not carry credit cards to purchase items."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and I was able to sleep for most of the flight."
Cons: "My flight was delayed several times and the gate was also changed. I recognize that safety is important, but passengers should be offered snacks when their flight is delayed for several hours."
Cons: "The pressurization of the cabin was very uncomfortable for me. I fly a lot and only notice this like one in 30 flights. I was very swollen after and felt the pressure during the flight."
Cons: "No viewing screens and fewer selections of movies from air canada app compared with selection from vancouver to tokyo. I don't know why our return trip was so different."
Cons: "Not even a pretzel with a soft drink or coffee. Also coffee was lukewarm."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and could recline more than other planes. Had entertainment in the headrests."
Pros: "Again, I felt we had excellent service. It was a small plane and one steward, and she did everything!"
Pros: "Short, quick and convenient"
Pros: "It was alright, just not much entertainment on a small plane"
Cons: "No enough things to entertain me and the seats were somewhat uncomfortable"
Cons: "The boarding process"
Pros: "Liked the option of multiple snacks rather than being restricted to pretzels."
Cons: "The seat cushion was not very comfortable--like it was squished from having been sat on several too many times."
Cons: "The seat that don’t recline have a very poor posture to begin with. Flight was delayed and didn’t depart for a while."
Pros: "The crew was great and the landing into Denver was very smooth."
Cons: "I miss the good old days where Captain X tells us what’s seeable out the window!"
Pros: "Boarding, service, staff attitudes, on time and deplaning"
Cons: "Getting to San Francisco flight was canceled, make a line for 3.30 hours to let us know what they were going to do with us, they give the place to go at 3 a.m with not directions were to take a bus , later someone come and told us the bus stop running at that time and I have to go upstairs to take a taxi, I was alone and not use to be alone at that time never in my live I had to pretend I was afraid. Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly. I got there more than a day and half LATE. If you ask me how was my trip I will tell you horrible and I can’t recommend anybody, this company doesn’t have any personality at all"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Everything but the easy boarding. Horrible comfort level to the point of wishing I could have hurled myself out of the plane."
Pros: "airplane was good"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The in flight entertainment didn't work on my iPad. Apparently I needed the United app. It would've been nice to have been notified of that before I got on the plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very welcoming"
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: "Our flight was 20 minutes lite but the flight crew was Great at letting us know what was going on."
Pros: "Fast flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment to speak of."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The captain was communicative while we were experiencing turbulence and the flight was relatively quick."
Cons: "I received different info from every united employee I spoke to. Myself and others on both my flights were frustrated by the fact that our gates were so far from each other and we had NO time to get to the next one because the first flight took so long to taxi. And then they treated us like children as we were trying to get our "carry on" items. Overall NOT a good experience."
Pros: "Great stuff, very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "When asked to be seated next to each other, my husband and myself, we weren't not helped at all."
Pros: "We arrived safely at PDX"
Cons: "We left 3 hrs late, arrived very late at night, I did not get home until 2 a.m. There was no apology. There were no plugs for computers in the back of the plane and I got stuck between a fat person to my left and a fat person in front of me who leaned their seat back as far as possible. It was hideous."
Pros: "N/A due to them rerouting my itinerary."
Cons: "N/A due to them rerouting my itinerary."
Pros: "The crew was courteous, the pilot was the best one out of the 4 flights I had taken that weekend."
Cons: "We used to get more for our money. 20 minutes isn't enough time to use the restroom and find and eat food after hauling from one terminal to another on the light rail. Then we are given a mystery snack mix and a drink, I remember we used to get meal service for flights that long. Boarding was very confusing for people in groups 3, 4, & 5 as we were all grouped in one line. Group 3 was called and 4 & 5 tried to board. A simple PA saying that group 3 should be in line first would help the confusion. The lady performing the boarding call was rude. Saying "I don't care I will just take thier bags and check them, they don't have a choice". That's a great way to start an argument. Then the seat pitch is awful, I'm not the only person flying that is over 6ft tall. My knees were directly impacting the meal tray arms of the seat in front of me the entire flight. Shorter flights weren't bad, but sitting on the ramp waiting for takeoff for at least 30 minutes plus the flight time was pretty painful."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and polite. Service was prompt and excellent"
Cons: "Excessively long layovers. I came home with 3 broken ribs and had to endure a 11 hour layover in Japan and another 6 hour layover in San Francisco."
Pros: "Due to a computer error there was a slight delay on take off. However, the flight crew bought us a tasty beverage for the inconvience. Kudos to the flight attendant as she had a short amount of time to provide our service and did a wonderful job. Thank you."
Pros: "Boarding was very organized"
Cons: "There were 2 flight attendants. Male and female. The female flight attendant was rude and appeared in a bad mood. And did not offer food to me. I hadnt eaten at all. I was in the very last row. And when the food cart approached she just wheeled right past without asking me. Then we i tried to get her attention she looked annoyed and ignored me. So i just ate ice cubes. It was unacceptable. I could hear her bickering at the other flight attendants in the back. It was so unprofessional."
Pros: "The crew was nice on the plane"
Cons: "Upon approach we were suddenly deverted to Seattle. I had a few issues. Number one you could not hear the pilot so that made it worse. The lack of communication was horrible. I have been on flights when there has been clarity given a change in plans but this was bad. We sat at the gate for an hour and a half, again no real communication, the fligh attendant t hope was joking when he said there was a half a bottle left for the whole plane...much later we were served water. Announcements were made but no clarity. We were told to collect baggage at number 2. Get a voucher for a hotel. After deplann9ng about 25 of us stood in line at the customer service desk where there were two staff working slowly. Then after an hour they announced we were in the wrong place, couldn't that have been explained earlier? Once we made our way out of the terminal to the ticket count the line was all the way down the hall. still with little info we waited. We landed at the alternate airport at 945, at 130am I had my vouchers, the food not useful until the following day, the hotels were full, no one picked up the phone for the shuttle bus to the hotels. I finally elected to sleep at the airport on a bench. We had actually all been reassigned a flight on our same plane. So I am not sure why we had to wait in line all that time. Our bags were not removed from the plane an irritated baggage claim attendant told me. It was a mess. The flight the next morning was fine, short, without problems for me. united needs to work on its communications. It would have been helpful to have someone out side running the line giving out info. And at customer service they should have been paying attention to their line. Would have been helpful."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Much more cramped than other airlines."
Pros: "This was the first flight in approximately 10 years where everything worked as it was supposed to. The flight was on time. Our crew were pleasant, friendly, and warm - this has been the missing element for a long time. The new plane was comfortable."
Cons: "I still could not get my PC to work with in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "I asked if I could buy headphones on the plane and they gave me a pair for free! I had the Tapas snack box and it was tasty and I was full afterwards."
Cons: "Only 1 of my 2 large plane flights had a personal TV. I also didn't know I had to download the App to watch free entertainment in light on my personal device so it prompted me to purchase Internet so that I could download the app"
Cons: "Seating next to the bathrooms is gross"
Cons: "Bad cancellation policy. I would've been charged over $200 to cancel a single leg of my journey (no other changes or add'l flight). Would not do business with United again."
Pros: "Good communication and polite."
Pros: "Excellent as expected."
Pros: "Overall okay everything was on time."
Cons: "There was no entertainment, no power outlet on one flight, they charge for access to there Internet. No Tvs on the back of the seats"
Pros: "I appreciated that we boarded quickly. Again the crew was great!"
Cons: "We were assigned seats that didn't recline, and we'd been travelling since 4:30am Pacific time. Flight was full so we were stuck. Our electrical outlet was smashed and unusable to charge my phone, which I needed for sending work emails and contacting clients. I was surprised that there was no free content on the tvs. I actually just wanted to see the map and it required I pay."
Pros: "The crews everyone was caring, respectful, and professional. I don't see anything to improve, they are that good, including the pilots!"
Cons: "I can't think of anything really."
Pros: "Same as above...was put on a direct flight on Alaska. Luggage arrived later in Portland but delivered professionally to my home that afternoon."
Pros: "Loved that the steward did everything possible to make sure that my service animal and I were completely comfortable for the flight."
Cons: "When I checked in the attendant tried to charge my service animal as a pet, even though I called in advance to let united know I was traveling with my service animal."
Pros: "Professional staff"
Cons: "Last minute gate change no notification. Plane was filthy even with 25 minute boarding delay, air coming from the supposed fresh air was full of lubricating oil smell. Seat would not recline as a disabled passenger with ruptured discs in my neck and back, this was more than an inconvenience it was very painful. At 6foot 2 inches tall my legs did not fit between the seats, plenty of foot room not enough space between rows. Miserable is an understatement the pain from the flight will certainly be very real for days after. Never United airlines again I will campaign against anyone flying United airlines!!"
Cons: "I cannot boo up to wifi so was unable to enjoy any entertainment."
Pros: "On time and people nice"
Cons: "Everything. Very good"
Pros: "We left on time and got in 40 min early, direct flight, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats were smaller than usual flights, no window seats left when I checked in, under seat leg area small, the TV was repetitive and no music options, if there were plugins on the flught!, they were hard to find. No free WiFi for T-Mobile in flight texting, standing in line while waiting to board after walking all day...the boarding took ages and people kept cutting (first class, disabled?)...it'd be nice if the crew acknowledged why people were taken out of order like "okay, first class you're all set!" Or "thank you for your service" so we knew it wasn't 20 people randomly jumping the line."
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to me while I was boarding. There was room for my carry on in the overhead compartment but she told me I had to keep my bag under the seat in front of me. There was also an extremely overweight person next to me, I couldn't lean back.I had to ride the entire flight on the edge of the seat stooped over. They should have made the large man buy 2 seats."
Pros: "Boarding, economy plus"
