Airline reviews

Pros: "I really got a good deal on my trip's cost, and for the price, all the comforts of a top-quality airline were there. I especially appreciate how helpful and friendly the airline staff were."
Cons: "The outbound flight still had the exact same movie selection as the inbound flight had, even though they were six weeks apart for my trip. I really feel like the movie selection should be changed every month (or even more frequently than that), as I ran out of films to watch."

Cons: "The person who assisted me to check in didn’t even know about Global entry..."

Cons: "Great experience all around. Need to improve access customer service support."

Pros: "Perfect service, never had a more pleasant and attentive crew"
Cons: "Movies were pretty much still the same as 10 weeks ago. Not possible to sleep in the seat in premium economy right by the toilets and galley. Constant door clattering and toilet flushing. In other cabins the noise wasn't as bad, probably better insulated?"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Lower the price"

Pros: "Service was excellent. Premium economy seats well worth the few extra $$."

Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "It’s 14h flight. I wanted more water. I had to keep asking but the size was too small... I didn’t want orange or apple juice...."

Pros: "Standard JAL. No hassles, nice, clean, friendly. Makes Hawaiian airlines look so Bad!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Friendly, clean. Great movie selection."
Cons: "I wasn't allowed to reserve a seat - apparently they don't allow Kayak customers to reserve seats now. I was forced into a middle seat and was uncomfortable and dehydrated the majority of the trip. Nice girl at baggage check said she'd ask a manager to move me, and to let them know at the gate, but the people at the gate said no. I felt discriminated against because I didn't book through them and/or I'm not Japanese. They historically love to put mushrooms in their food, like a fetish. This left me with one choice for the entree - some version of oyakodon - eggs and chicken. In my box there were two enormous chunks of fat/skin and another unidentifiable part of the chicken, and about the amount of edible chicken as 1 1/2 nuggets from Chick-Fil-A. There was more lotus root than chicken, so basically I had a box of rice and scrambled eggs with garnish. For the second meal, it was the Yoshinoya gyudon - a small serving of thinly sliced beef with rice. If I bought this fresh at a Yoshinoya restaurant, it would cost about $3. It's the rough equivalent of serving you a McDouble - cheap and filling and a coin toss if you get stomach pains. I lost that coin toss. Unless there is a big fare difference or I find out that their reserved seat policies are changed, I will choose ANA or another carrier. I used to enjoy JAL, but I cannot abide by idiotic decisions that seemed designed to punish people for using 3rd-party booking sites or who are not Japanese."

Pros: "They were very accommodating and helped ensure a good travel experience (first time traveling with a young child)."

Pros: "Very efficient getting the plane loaded trying to beat a Typhoon approaching. immediately compensated passengers after a couple of delays. excellent service."

Pros: "Lots of leg room in economy, flat screen, very friendly crew, and this was the cheapest direct flight to Japan I could find 2 weeks in advance!"

Pros: "The flight from Chicago to Tokyo was delayed, which made me worried that I would miss the connection to Taipei. I was very happy to discover that an airline staff person was waiting for me when I got off the plane, having already changed me to another Taipei flight. She explained things and guided me to the right place. She was able to walk amazingly fast for a woman wearing high heels!"

Pros: "everything went well. food and service was great."
Cons: "the return flight had a guy next to me that would keep putting his feet in front of me. he would spill over to my side so much. pretty rude person."

Pros: "Flight time was not bad, not too long"
Cons: "Food options were bad, I offered to pay money for something better, didn't even have an option to pay for better meals, I don't think better meals existed for coach."

Pros: "Prompt, friendly service. Clean aircraft with comfortable seats. Onboard meal for international flight."

Pros: "Service was exquisite."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Politeness. It definitely stands out."
Cons: "Coffee. It just didn’t taste good to me. But they had wine!"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "Food was fair, not great."

Pros: "From check in to final destination, customer service to amenities, Japan Airlines exceeded my expectations in every regard."
Cons: "The flights were everything I expected and more."

Pros: "Great service and terrific vegan meals served. Facilities were clean and personnel were very helpful and provided terrific service to the passengers."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Food was very good and snacks and drinks were offered frequently. Plenty of entertainment on the in-seat TV consoles. Gave me a pillow and blanket and the seat reclined a bit so I could sleep some. The airline staff were polite and helpful."
Cons: "Nothing, it was a very positive experience."

Pros: "Comfortable and service was pleasant"
Cons: "Like all of it except lack of vegetarian option for food"

Pros: "Let's face it - flying b-class is pretty awesome, so for $3300, it was really great. Loved the food selections, though I did feel the food was a little on the heavy side. I had the Japanese fare, which was lighter, but a little more salted than what I prefer - but over all very good. Service was amazing - the crew is super-nice. The plane, a massive 787 jet, absorbed the turbulence like it was nothing. It was like riding in one of those Cadillacs from the 1970's. The lavatories were big enough that I could actually stand up straight (and I'm 6'0"). The seats were pretty good as well - they had a feature for extension of the seating surface to allow for more thigh support (which I love) as well as great lumbar support. the movie selection was OK - neither great nor bad, and I ended up watching 4 movies during the flight anyway. ;)"
Cons: "I preface this section by saying that I'm being very nit-picky here - there's not much I can really say, except that the seats, while they will recline to a flat surface, which is great for dozing off, they are angled about 15 degrees so you're constantly sliding down them in that position. Also, there could be more support for your head in the reclined position - I had to futz with pillows and a blanket to get that comfortable. However, the reclined position was the most comfortable, and I could get it so that I was sufficiently reclined with my legs extended and horizontal, while laying back without sliding down. This was sufficient for resting. I'm only mentioning this because I flew a business class flight on Delta in 2015 which had ridiculously amazing seats that reclined all the way flat and horizontal. On the 9-11 hour flight from Tokyo back to San Diego, which will take place mainly at night, this would be a very useful feature."

Pros: "best comfy seat! best food best service! I will use japan airline again!"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "The check-in was flawless and gave me accurate information about my luggage being checked all the way through. I had an overnight layover in Tokyo and they handled my luggage the way I expected."

Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive."
Cons: "A bit hard to get in and out of my seat 8A. But the seat and bed itself were comfortable."

Pros: "Service impeccable"
Cons: "Worst food in the industry. Barely edible."

Pros: "The crew member was excellent and his charisma really made up for any shortcomings this little "puddle jumper" had. He even helped my companion out with some advice for relieving his ear pressure."

Pros: "The fact that everything is included with the flight makes it very easy to fly with JAL. The staff was friendly and helpful when I was checking in. The agent tried her best to get me a window or aisle seat but was unable to. That didn't matter though. Airlines in the US should learn from them and treat their customers the same way."

Pros: "Went premium economy for such a long flight- NYC to Tokyo- to Sydney. Seats were great as was crew and everything!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "Nice"
Cons: "Nth"

Pros: "Plane was spotlessly clean, smelled nice, bathrooms also very clean and had toothbrushes and toothpaste. I requested the vegetarian meal and it was the best airline food I have ever eaten Flight crew was friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy working for Japan Airlines. I don't see that very often on any domestic US air carriers. I highly recommend Japan Air."
Cons: "Headset was too big for me and kept skipping back."

Pros: "excellent foods and services, spacious seats, crews speak english, flight is landing is smooth"
Cons: "seats need a bit more padding"

Pros: "Direct flights from San Diego to Narita. Easy connections for other countries. Good food. Luggage allowance."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "The crew on JAL is excellent. They get pleasure out of providing service to the passenger -- I was in business class."

Cons: "too little legroom seating is designed shorter legged Japanese"

Pros: "Great food, great seats, everything was smooth overall"

Pros: "Food and leg room"

Pros: "Very attentive and efficient"

Pros: "Amazing crew. Great service in economy."

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Horrible."

Cons: "Took long time to provide food & water."

Pros: "Qatar airways is the best company"

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Too crowded in in flight"

Pros: "the flight was empty and lots of room to get comfortable snacks and food were good boarding was easy"

Cons: "They drop you at the airport for 16-17 hours Airport hotel costs around 350$/night No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they gave No entry visas because you bought a discounted ticket!!"

Pros: "The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago"

Pros: "Not much really."
Cons: "The air craft was old, I was sitting on the exit row and the screen was loose and the window on the exit row was leaking. The food was bad and the service was poor. The flight attendant kept on forcing things on me rather than asking me what I wanted."

Pros: "the trip coming and going from Kuwait was very pleasant"

Cons: "Leg space in economic class is too less. No options in vegetarian food. They don't give you what you want."

Cons: "Lack of movies"

Pros: "Great food, and excellent choice of in-flight entertainment."

Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Cons: "Late gatw announcement so we waited for quite sometime in front of the electronic board"

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Pros: "A couple more inches leg room than most airlines was welcome, They airline and crew were very good and the Doha airport very nice."

Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "I was disappointed when i tried to change my departure date. I was told one price and was charged a full round trip price at the end."
Cons: "Be more clear when explaining charges and fees including taxes"

Pros: "Excellent meals (3) and great service. Efficient minimal layover in Qatar."

Cons: "Take off delayed. Plane had air conditioning problems."

Pros: "Great seats, great crew."
Cons: "Was not anything too exciting on Entertainment with regards to movies, but personal choice really."

Pros: "Plane was large and comfortable."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable, good entertainment"
Cons: "Poor gluten free options"

Pros: "The crew were superlative."

Cons: "Too long of a wait for "parking" after landing"

Cons: "Everything about the flight was great with the exception that the WiFi was pretty terrible and didnt work the final few hours of the flight. I raise the issue because customers shouldn’t pay $15 for it if it doesn’t work."

Pros: "Everything was nice.."
Cons: "None..."

Pros: "Fast and easy"

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"

Pros: "Crew service, and service at Emirates lounge in Dubai, were outstanding"

Cons: "I cant cause im still at quantos waiting for them to find my god damn bags!"

Cons: "Delays boarding meant we were almost 30 mins late arriving in Wellington. Cramped seats on Qantas 737 plane"

Pros: "Comfortable overall, not much turbulance"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Comfort, amenities"

Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."

Cons: "All good"

Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"

Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."

Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"

Pros: "Staff were quite attentive. All requested were promptly fulfilled"
Cons: "Service took a long time once on the flight. We left Sydney at 7pm and didn't receive any food or drinks for at least an hour and a half."

Pros: "Our seats & the crew."
Cons: "Food was ok & entertainment was ok but not great."

Pros: "A380! Overall is good. I liked a bag of accessories including eye mask and socks."
Cons: "In flight food in Arabic style, my brother didn't like much of that styled food. But I'm OK with it. They provided light meal ( "pide" lamb/veggie filled bread or choice of fruit). The veggie pide was a bit weird. But overall, the food was not so bad."

Pros: "Got upgraded to Business!"
Cons: "Nothing really, crew was professional"

Pros: "Bar in business class"

Cons: "I specifically booked my flight with emirates as I prefer their service,food,staff,seating and entertainment and was instead told once I arrived at Auckland airport that we were instead flying with qantas . Not impressed that we received no email or contact to inform us of this beforehand . The service itself from qantas was not bad but again some sort of notice would have been nice ."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The fact that I didn't fly due to ill health and got no refund"

Pros: "all entertrainment onboard is excellent ."
Cons: "the flight is good,,but unfortunately the staff is not accomodating that much,,need some basic training on what kind of food you are serving to passenger.."

Pros: "All was good"

Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."

Pros: "Emirates is always excellent however the crew were not very engaging"

Pros: "Emirates crew have been amazing in every point of our journey!"

Pros: "Loved the staff, very friendly and extremely accommodation nothing was too much trouble. Very comfortable"

Pros: "The airplane was nice and clean, good selection of movies and music."
Cons: "I didn't like the service! Flight attendants are not very helpful Food was very bad!"

Pros: "Crew were lovely"
Cons: "Extremely overweight passenger next to me. It was awful, her body was in contact with me the entire flight. The most uncomfortable, hot, smelly, awkward flight Ive ever experienced. Its time you charge for 2 seats for people that are the size of 2 people. Not fair to other passengers to have to be so inconvenienced and extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"

Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"

Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"

Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."

Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."

Pros: "Perfect!"

Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"

Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"

Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."

Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."

Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."

Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."
Cons: "The crew on the way to Sydney was a little more present. There was always someone milling in the galley between the business class and premium economy cabin. The crew returning came through the cabin often and were attentive if you asked for them but you had to seek them out."

Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."

Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."

Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."

Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."

Pros: "On time and very professional"

Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."

Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"

Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."

Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."

Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."

Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."

Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."

Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."

Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."

Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."

Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."

Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."

Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."

Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."

Pros: "Polite and professional"

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."

Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"

Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."

Pros: "Flight was safe and early then estimates timd landing"
Cons: "Meal is not enough for older people (my mom over 60y) then i think that is not enough to adults too Meal is not good tatste like before when fly with quatas only No appetizer like before too fly with quatas we can eat 6 - 8 times include snack"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and lots of leg room in the priority seat I purchased in advance"
Cons: "Very bad food"

Pros: "Enjoyed my flight, good to be flying American I wish I could fly AA every time"

Cons: "Was not happy about it, as I don't like American Airlines, and thought I was booking a QANTAS flight. Shoudn't promote a flight as QANTAS if it was not a actual QANTAS plane. I had to go into extra queues to get my ticket as I was not officially on either. I couldn't choose a seat or any options before my flight so was stuck at the back on a airline I don't like. WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND"

Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"

Cons: "The staff was very rude . I was given an American Airlines plane not qantas the way home. I'll never fly American ever again."

Pros: "Good job"

Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."

Cons: "Bigger seats and food service"

Pros: "Worst experience I’ve ever had traveling and I travel a lot. United needs some better works and to compensate for my 14 hours of sitting in the airport for no reason."
Cons: "Everything that happened was completely shitty...."

Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Cons: "None."

Cons: "Seat was insanely small"

Cons: "Asked which sandwich was most popular, burger or chicken, and flight attendant told me she was a vegetarian. Diet Coke had one small ice cube."

Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped seats - no leg room (unless you want to pay much more). I'm 5'10 on a good day, so I don't know how someone 6'+ can sit in the back 2/3 of the plane."

Pros: "Comfy seats. Flights on time. Free pretzels."

Cons: "Cold, not enough space for carry on"

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"

Cons: "Never enough food selections"

Pros: "Service, space, and staff of course!"
Cons: "Entertainment is boring and tired, United use to offer better free shows and movies!"

Pros: "I had window seat"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They cut one hour and took off when I made chek in they gave another ticket I was supposed to arrive 6 pm in my destination I arrived 11 pm and they were very very rude when I tried to complain about it! United no more!!!"

Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"

Cons: "Couldn't make"

Cons: "Having to pay for entertainment."

Pros: "Quick, smooth"

Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."
Cons: "Delayed after boarding because of a technical issue and then after waiting over an hour we had to deplane and board another plane in a different terminal. That was a bummer"

Pros: "-Avoided the foul toilet -No overbooked passenger was clubbed into submission & dragged off.. although the threat hung in the air..."
Cons: "Delayed take off, cramped seating, predatory fees, ...what else could go wrong?"

Pros: "perfect"
Cons: "thank you"

Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."

Cons: "Being required to sit in middle seat and I'm deaf so I could not see what was going on in the isle like watching the flight attendants deliver their message."

Cons: "So crowded it was unbelievable. The seats are jammed together way too tight"

Pros: "Stewardesses were nice"
Cons: "Captain did not show. Had to wait 45 minutes for a new crew!"

Pros: "Ditto"

Cons: "Ko"

Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."

Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"

Pros: "On time, new plane."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "2 hour plus delay. After we boarded an additional delay due to maintenance paperwork. I missed part of a work meeting because of this."

Pros: "Everything ran on time in a smoothly Manor..."
Cons: "Not to comfortable need more space between People"

Pros: "They got us on this flight (the last one to SNA for the day) after we missed our original connecting flight due to delays on the Frankfurt to Houston flight."
Cons: "crowded"

Cons: "Boarding was a little rough. I use a walker and I had to board last. It was difficult for me to get to my seat."

Pros: "On Time!"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Delayed luggage"

Cons: "The pane was 2 hours delayed due tom problem at airport. While we sat on the plane for 2 hours in old uncomfortable seats (5pm - 7pm) we were not offered refreshments or snacks. When the flight finally took off and they got to us after 9pm, they had ran out of food. Lastly, this plan was made for short flights. No one should be asked to sit in those seats for 7 hours."

Cons: "Gate attendant had a snide attitude and made a joke about the possibility that a Samsung 7 could cause an explosion in flight over the intercom. Very unprofessional."

Pros: "I missed my flight and the front counter was very, very cheerful at 8pm and helpful. I was able to get on the last flight. There was no food or entertainment, but it's a short flight. I didn't really mind. Just happy to go home in comfort with my upgraded exit aisle seat and no one next to me."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Early boarding for passengers with children under age of 2 was super helpful for me as I was traveling by myself with baby for the first time!"

Pros: "It was nice and smooth and I had an empty seat in between, it doesn't make 5 stars because I was in coach."

Pros: "choices"
Cons: "too much $ for 1/2 a meal."

Cons: "My flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Having to spent the night here at the airport. I'm still here waiting. I was rebooked on a 11:55am flight for this morning 7/19/16. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."

Pros: "We arrived early."
Cons: "We were in group 5, We couldn't take our carry on. They ran out of space for it in the overhead bins. Had to check it."

Pros: "Took off early!"
Cons: "One stuartist was very frank and unwelcoming."

Pros: "The Qantas agent controlling access to the International Terminal from the Domestic Terminal in Sydney was the best I have ever encountered. Not only did he unravel a very complicated situation created by United, he helped get cell phone to the connecting flight after I left it on first flight. Service on the flight was good and better in Economy than Business First on United."
