Pros: "Flight attendants super sweet and really paid attention to any needs. Comfy seats, lots of movies to choose from and a tasty breakfast."

Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."

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

Cons: "Crew was not friendly. Also - who thought putting call buttons in the armrest was a good idea? We had 10 accidental calls from the people around us alone."

Pros: "Crew was nice, seat not so comfortable"
Cons: "too crowded for such a long flight"

Pros: "ENTERTAINMENT. ONE STAFF MEMBER DID HER BEST TO LOOK AFTER ME DUE TO THE TERRIBLE SEATING ISSUES."
Cons: "I REQUESTED AND WAS GIVEN A WINDOW EXIT SEAT AS I AM TALL. THE SEAT HAD NO WINDOW AND HAD A HUGE EXIT BARRIER IN FRONT OF ME SO IT WAS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. THE STAFF TOLD ME I HAD TO PUT MY SHOES BACK ON BECAUSE I WAS IN AN EXIT ROW. A DIFFERENT STAFF MEMBER SAID IT DIDNT MATTER"

Cons: "on line check in more difficult than others"

Pros: "great food, entertainment & service"

Pros: "Entertainment and check in staff."
Cons: "Wasn’t able to check in on line. Was asked to pay for seat request on return flight. Passenger put seats as far as can go bashing into my knees (and I am average height. Not very tall), both 15-16 hour flights. It was awful and crew only insist chair is raised slightly for meals. none of my flights since joining frequent flyer were honoured scoring “0” points for flights from/back to US. Back to Delta I guess"

Pros: "The food was decent"
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work or was buggy for the entire flight and while we got an apology, we got no other compensation. Also, with 2 hours left in the flight, the flight attendants loudly woke everyone up in the plane and forcefully raised everyone's seats, even if they were asleep, so that they could serve breakfast to everyone. That was an incredibly rude awakening."

Pros: "Normal standard for that kind of trip"

Pros: "Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Could use more leg room. When the seat in front of you is reclined it is practically in you face."

Pros: "warm food even on domestic flight"

Pros: "staff were very friendly"
Cons: "the entertainment equipment had a glitch and not function properly"

Pros: "Lunch served was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed a bit."

Pros: "Could not fault"

Cons: "We were booked for a connecting flight we could not possiblely have made given we had to go through customs, immigragion and baggage claim. We had to catch a later flight which was then delayed because none of the toilets worked."

Pros: "Check-in & flight staff were very pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was one hour late. There was no entertainment system on the flight. The snack was mediocre."

Pros: "Fantastic Service On time Easy boarding"

Pros: "The flight crew was great, very comfortable plane ride"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late, but the pilot kept us in the loop with all the information"

Pros: "The staff were great but the wait time on calling quantas is ridiculous, check in on an old machine is slow etc"
Cons: "requested an aisle seat online and was not given one. I requested vegetarian meals but was automatically served up dead animals as food so had to keep requesting vegetarian food everytime food was offered. Rather that checking in with an actual human I was directed to a slow and time consuming check in machine."

Pros: "The staff did the best they could to accommodate everyone on a full flight in economy. The passenger in front of me had a failed entertainment system and the staff handled it very well."
Cons: "The leg room is obviously minimal in economy but compared to Singapore Airlines this was cramped and when the seat in front reclines it's almost impossible to find a comfortable position if you're over 5 foot 9! food was below par."

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Poor meals in cardboard boxes"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "Friendly customer service crew, nice amenities kit, and quick boarding."
Cons: "Old aircraft (737) let’s down a good company and frequent flyers."

Pros: "Excellent flight - great from start to finish. Free wifi was a bonus! delicious afternoon tea"

Cons: "Stop sending me these emails. I didn't even take this flight."

Cons: "Bathrooms were disgusting, plane was dirty"

Pros: "Crew was amazingly helpful in all my enquiries"
Cons: "All amazing nothing to complain about it"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Point a to point b with no hiccups."
Cons: "The cabin crew was rude and had no self awareness. 2 times where I wasn't finished with my drink and they grabbed it right out of my hands. I was grabbing it so they could clear everything else but they took it as me trying to hand it to them. Both times I told them I was still drinking that and they disregarded it and threw it in the trash without hesitation. It's like they were robots on autopilot. Also, the male attendant in my row would always bump me pretty severely with his bum while grabbing things from the cart."

Pros: "Once on the plane, the seats, meals and service was great"
Cons: "The lounge was horrible. Crowded, lack of choice for food and drink. Not even crisps available, just stodgy white bread sandwiches and some deep fried (frozen) samosas. Nothing in any way healthy, nothing meat free. The service was however a very high standard, but the staff only had what they had to work with. This flight is always full, so I don't understand why Qantas does not fix this problem."

Pros: "Dinner meal"
Cons: "Nil"

Pros: "A cut above all others"

Pros: "Service and food where good"
Cons: "The TV screen was not responsive and headphones outlet was mest up at both seats on each flight. When you plug in headphones you get only one speaker working or non at all. We couldn't injoy intertaiment consel at all."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hr 30 min because of catering issues. Because of that only one hot meal for 14 hr flight. Diabetic food was the worst I ever had. My prepaid seat for extra $35 AUD wasn't available. The seat was uncomfortable and the pillow was huge - I had to put it on a floor. I am surprised why Qantas is rated #9 among best airlines for 2016. I will try to avoid Qantas in the gorier."

Pros: "Crew on the plane was a group of wonderful ladies. Always smiling & pleasant, even when they had to move people around. Great service with a smile."
Cons: "No info ahead of time about checking in. Once we got to the airport, I was told that I should have known better & checked in 24 hours prior. initially, the agent said that all seats are appropriated randomly. At the gate, I'm told different. I had to fight tooth & nail to get a seat next to my wife (who often gets airsick). It didn't feel good to have to argue & make a scene to accomplish this."

Cons: "The wait time for checked baggage in Melbourne was unacceptable ... 45minutes. This is disgraceful in comparison with other countries. It adds a significant delay to overall journey time."

Pros: "Excellent"

Cons: "My name is Parag Mokashi, Indian Passport No. Z1788332 had booked 2 return air tickets from Singapore to Auckland with details as follows: Qantas Airways Flight QF6 - Depart Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 01Dec16 (Thu) 23:50 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 10:50 Flight QF145 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 02Dec16 (Fri) 11:55 Arrive Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 02Dec16 (Fri) 17:10 Flight QF144 - Depart Auckland International Apt, NZ (AKL) 13Dec16 (Tue) 08:35 Arrive Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 10:15 Flight QF81 - Depart Sydney Kingsford Smith Apt, AU (SYD) 13Dec16 (Tue) 11:15 Arrive Singapore Changi Apt, SG (SIN) 13Dec16 (Tue) 16:30 I had booked these tickets online through CheapTickets.sg on 17th September 2016. While booking the tickets mine and my wife’s full details such as the Name, Nationality and Passport were given. In spite of this nowhere was it mentioned in the Quantas terms and conditions or any prompt/popup given while booking the tickets that Australian transit visa is required for Indians since the flight is via Australian city. I had booked the tickets well in advance and had enough time to get transit visa had there been any information about it mentioned. On 1st December 2016 when we went to the Changi airport we were not allowed to board the plane as we did not have the Australian transit visa. We were told by Quantas personnel at the airport to go to the Australian embassy in Singapore to get the transit visa and that we would get it within a day. Next day we went to the embassy and found that the Australian visa is done by VFS global at a different address. When went there they informed us that Australian visa takes minimum 5 days. I had all my hotel bookings in New Zealand already done hence I had no choice to take a direct Singapore Auckland flight via Singapore Airlines at a very high price on the next day. I also lost one day of my hotel booking in Auckland and had to forfeit the money. I and my wife had to go through the psychological trauma of being refused to board the plane, then the next day running around the Australian embassy / VFS global office for trying to get the Australian transit visa and facing the uncertainty regarding our new Zealand trip which was planned well in advance for our 25th wedding anniversary"

Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"

Pros: "Was impressed with all aspects of Air Calin. Great staff - nice plan - lovely service including food."

Pros: "I love Qantas and mostly fly the airline. Love the 380 airbus for long hauls."
Cons: "On this flight the attendants were very un-organised to a point of almost tripping over themselves. meal delivery over an hour apart The standard of meals seems to have dropped by a star. Not wanting to post a gloomy picture as the staff area nearly always friendly and great. These guys were also. Perhaps they were tired."

Cons: "Plane departs at 1pm Sydney. Lights are turned off within a couple of hours, but for me, sleeping at 3pm is impossible. Point being? A later departure would be a help. Clearly not going to happen, but the timing of the flight to Sydney from DFW had been awesome."

Pros: "Service was too notch. Despite software issues and timtams out of stock, crew were lighthearted and joked around with passengers. V refreshing."
Cons: "Comfort still has room to improve, a foot rest would be a step in the right direction. Particularly for us shorter types or those who like to curl up and sleep. Also random upgrades (eg. Exit rows) is always appreciated. Online dinner special was excellent. Breakfast was terrible, maybe because it was the last meal so not as fresh?"

Cons: "Sold as Qantas. In fact it is Jetstar. No food, no drinks, no entertainment. Qantas personal unfriendly when we went to Qantas desk to check in for, what we thought was a Qantas flight."

Pros: "Even though the delay caused me to miss my connecting flight to Perth Qantas booked me onto the next available one so my overall delay was reduced to one hour. Thanks for not screwing me over."

Pros: "Nicest flight attendants I've seen! Their service is phenomenal and they truly care about your experience. Food and entertainment are great as well."
Cons: "Seats were incredibly cramped, very little legroom for such a long flight."

Pros: "The food was absolutely incredible for such a short and domestic flight. The in-flight entertainment app was also amazing."

Pros: "excellent food, first rate movies choices, newer plane, professional staff"
Cons: "There was a child in a car seat in the seat behind me and she kicked my seat for the first few hours. At that point the parents turned her seat around and it was easier to fly. The window seat is usually my preference but strangely enough there is so much of a gap between the seat and the "wall" and window that i constantly lost my pillow in the slot"

Pros: "Crews were wonderful. Seat space could be better."
Cons: "Leaving on time could be better."

Pros: "Crew was so helpful"
Cons: "Food ...special ordered food didnt make it in any flight. And quality of food needs bit improvement"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the bula plus seats are worth the money."

Cons: "The food !"

Pros: "Crew, food, service"
Cons: "Interior and entertainment system quite outdated. When trying to turn on the reading lights the ones above the seats before us would go on, not ours (21H was our seat, 20H light would turn on, not ours)"

Pros: "Amazing service on Fiji Airways"

Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "More movie selections"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest. Movies were mostly older and good PG at worst."
Cons: "Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest BUT very cramped in Basic Economy. I’m short and couldn’t even put my seat back for entire 11 hours because man behind me was so tall. Meals did not include any salad but did have small amount of veggies."

Pros: "I love that the planes are loaded from back to front!!! I wish airlines in the states will follow suit. It seems that this makes the most sense."

Pros: "Can't beat that. Bigger seat, better leg room, comfortable seats."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Great food and drink..complimentary on Fiji Airlines. Economy class seats are bigger than all US airlines!"
Cons: "Late to board d in Fiji due to ‘ operational’ reasons? Late arrival into Honolulu. But overall good flight"

Pros: "Service is nice. Very friendly. Food is good."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Audio for in flight entertainment did not work midway through the movie. Video was unclear. Food was terrible."

Pros: "Food was very tasty. In-flight movies were up to date and very good."
Cons: "Seat was hard as a rock. No way to get comfortable on a 10 hour + flight. Seat in front practically is in your face when they recline. I'm not fond of the A330 layout. Give me a 777 any day."

Pros: "My flight to Los Angeles was great comfortable seats and the food was very good"
Cons: "Unfortunately my flight from Los Angeles to Christchurch was cancelled the plane had a mishap on the runway colliding with another plain so was booked on an Air New Zealand flight back to Auckland the following night it was good of Fiji air to put me up in the Crowne Plaza near airport lovely hotel"

Pros: "As above"
Cons: "Breakfast was pretty average"

Pros: "The service and food"
Cons: "Plane seems dated"

Pros: "Food, comfort & on board entertainment not the best but for the price of the flight it was well worth it. The flight crew and those on the ground in Nadi were amazing. Fantastic service all round. Don't forget to use the Premier Lounge in Nadi if you're there for a few hours. FJ$100 for full lounge access. It was an absolute pleasure. Best way to get to the USA from NZ."

Pros: "Fuji was Great"

Cons: "sitting in a plane at Sydney airport for three hours waiting for a part,for the plane was not much fun.But we still got to Apia that day,or maybe late but before 12 midnight was a very long day."

Pros: "They had vegetarian options at every in-flight meal. Heaven! Flight staff were all extremely attentive and polite."
Cons: "Seats are cramped (as with most budget travel) and entertainment options were not very good. Movies were mainly very old and games not very interesting."

Pros: "Service, space, seats and one meal was good."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very nice and liguids were given frequently."
Cons: "The seating needs more room for legs"

Cons: "Fiji airways lost about a third of the baggage on our flight and no representatives would give us any information. Then when we were sent to file a claim for lost luggage, no one was at the office for another hour. While I understand things happen, the way that they handled this situation was completely awful."

Pros: "They did hand out thin blankets."
Cons: "The temperature in the airplane... Couldn't feel my body!"

Cons: "Despite buying my ticket with virgin and being a platinum Fiji air tried to charge me $300 for an extra bag."

Pros: "Crew's service"
Cons: "Better organizing of boarding"

Pros: "Staff were very helpful and attentive"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable, and needed repair. Entertainment very limited Limited checked baggage (one piece only)"

Cons: "Cancelled the flight and had to cancell the whole trip. They’re the only game in town to get to Christmas Island."

Pros: "On time. Good aircraft. Good landing"

Cons: "The food,rude staf ,small and uncomfortable seats,outdated entertainment system. A staff member had the nerve to tell me to let a first class customer go before me to the restroom (although I was in line to use my assigned restroom) because “he was first class and his assigned restroom was occupied.“"

Pros: "I didn't like anything about this airline !"
Cons: "Where do I start !!!! Horrible service bad food no class ... Would never fly Fiji Airways if I have other options . Sad that it's the only airline flying to Fiji ."

Pros: "Foods"
Cons: "Poor communications between crews and passengers"

Pros: "Everything was perfect - from the crew, to the plane itself, to the entertainment and blankets and seats -- delightful and easy flight!"

Pros: "I really appreciated how the crew enforced window shades down for the majority of the flight. It really helped me sleep like I was hoping to so that I can be better adjusted to the time change and reduce jet lag."

Pros: "Airline stays rooted in its culture. The interior, uniforms, and ambience all give way to the Fiji island culture. They also give a small pillow and blanket in every seat."
Cons: "I wish the seats were a bit wider and had more legroom. But overall the airline is on average for space and I have flown in more uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew."
Cons: "That we had a window seat, but on getting to Nadi found that had been given away and we had two seats in the middle section. Not real happy about that."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats are hard"

Pros: "The crew and entertainment options were wonderful!"
Cons: "Seats were a little uncomfortable and the food was just okay."

Pros: "No surprises. Left on time. Food better than average"
Cons: "Took longer than thought given distance covered"

Pros: "Professional and friendly crew. My 8th international flight in business class with 3 different airlines and Fiji Airways crew beat them hands down. Loved the Fiji Chicken curry."
Cons: "Angled seats Limited choice on IFE"

Pros: "IT was a quick flight."
Cons: "People always used my the way at my comfort seat to shortn there way...so it wasnt really comfortable. The Crew seemed really stressed."

Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."

Cons: "Same as above comment. Plus something needs to change about bringing water bottles on to the plane from Fiji airport. It's just dumb to put people on a flight for 10+ hours with no water. Not happy with this experience."

Pros: "Lots of legroom. Clean, new plan. Friendly qnd efficient crew."

Pros: "As described above."

Pros: "It's American you know what you get"
Cons: "No room as always but you have to wear a mask next to another mouth breather and they still keep it hot!"

Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Super crowded and hot"

Cons: "Flight attendants not enforcing mask rules. Unfortunately, many people on my flight seemed to think they're not concerned by the pandemic, and were keeping their noses out of their masks, or frequently removing their masks"

Pros: "Plane wasn’t full, they allowed everyone to spread out in the plane"

Pros: "They were fine. Seemed really short with a mom and her children but other than that, average."
Cons: "Well, my flight was delayed for an hour and a half and it seemed like the airlines mistake, not weather. It's going to make me over 2 his late to a concert, which is the main reason I came here. So hopefully they let me in, or I just spent $300 for nothing."

Pros: "The entire crew and the landing"

Pros: "I liked that the armrest came up and that the walkway was a bit wider than other airplanes."
Cons: "Larger seats"

Cons: "Paid for a seat with extra legroom, but passenger in next seat allowed small child to run back and forth in the legroom. Nothing was done when observed by crew"

Pros: "My wife and I chose premium economy for the long flight from L.A. to Sydney. I believe it was well worth paying for the differential level of service."

Pros: "The crew was very courteous and helpful, they seemed to have a positive attitude and worked with passengers like they really enjoyed their job."
Cons: "There was a 3 hour delay outbound and a 9 hour delay inbound. On the inbound flight I was put up in a nice hotel for the day and given a $30 meal voucher. However I missed my connecting flights and had to be put up when I got back to the States. Despite getting in at 10pm I was put on a 5am flight."

Cons: "More leg room, more attentive to customers with disabilities"

Cons: "Well the flight was delayed out of Indy and then due to some emergency at Ohare, we taxied for at least 30 minutes causing me to be late for my connecting flight and now I'm still here waiting for my new flight which is delayed."

Pros: "Good plane with excellent crew."
Cons: "Bulkhead seat in Main Cabin Extra was a nightmare. One has to be in cirque du soleil to navigate through breakfast in the extra small tray."

Pros: "Row to myself. Big plane."
Cons: "Still need more wgroom as someone over 6 feet tall."

Pros: "Super great flight attendant in first class. Very friends and beautiful smile. Nice to see on stressful days traveling. Nice job!"

Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"

Pros: "Boarding the plane was incredibly fast. As for the crew, I got an iffy energy from one of the crew members whom I felt was trying to play on my intelligence."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."

Cons: "Nothing was wrong."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, flight took off and landed close to the time it was supposed to."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable, first check d bag could be included instead."

Pros: "It was as good as one has gotten used to"
Cons: "It was only as good as one has gotten used to"

Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The snack selection and lack of entertainment"

Pros: "I got to sneak into the economy plus seats and no one said anything."
Cons: "Flight attendants clearly did not like each other and argued constantly. Sub-par coffee (even by international standards)."

Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."

Pros: "Quick boarding and punctuality at departure"
Cons: "Plane was not confortable"

Pros: "It was quick and easy."

Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."

Pros: "Ss"
Cons: "Sd"

Pros: "Quick boarding and luggage pickup."
Cons: "Mediocre staff. In my experience United is more friendly and welcoming."

Cons: "The space between seats are too small, and the seats do not recline enough (very uncomfortable)"

Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."

Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"

Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"

Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Thanks, Obama."

Cons: "Flight itself was good, but will never book via JustFly again. 2/3 of my flights were cancelled and I was never notified. Then I had to call to reschedule, which took almost an hour. Then they stated they would send my confirmation via email 24-48 hours. 3 days later and the confirmation still never came. SO I had to call again and wait another half hour. No point in booking through a 3rd party for that type of hassle."

Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."

Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"

Cons: "Flight was late, no info why, when landed in DCA NO GATE AVAILABLE - and that is past 10 PM."

Pros: "The flight attendants on both flights were very friendly"
Cons: "They changed my flight without telling me about it. My first flight was at 8 but my plane was late. When I went to the ticket counter they changed my flight and didn't tell me when I was getting to my destination"

Cons: "I didn't like how we were 20 minutes early yet after 1.5 hours of sitting on the Tarmac that I missed my connection by a few minutes. I wish the crew hadn't falsely informed the passengers onboard that the other planes would be delayed with the communication issue @ Reagan (DC)."

Pros: "Excellent customer service. Good food."
Cons: "Didn't realize that codeshare meant operation by another airline, so we waited in line to up at the wrong counter, in the wrong terminal and then had to schlep our baggage to the right one. Good thing we were early."

Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."

Pros: "I liked the flight, the cabin crew was great, and the pilot nailed their landing."
Cons: "The big one is that when we tried to check in with Qantas, we were informed that we needed to check in with American Airlines and could not check in. Had we not been to the airport 2.5 hours early, we would have had a great shot at missing our flight because of this.As it was, we only had 15 extra minutes from when we got to the gate from when we boarded. Even this email you just sent to me said "rate your Qantas Flight", not rate your American Airlines flight coshared by Qantas. The other big gripe is that we sat on the tarmac for way longer than I would have expected. LAX Sucks."

Pros: "As always, the staff was courteous and efficient. I never have any problems when I fly American Airlines. I often book my flights specifically for American Airlines when I can."

Pros: "Made it to LGA"
Cons: "Didn't make it home"

Pros: "I liked the smooth ride, and engaging captain. We didn't hit much turbulence, even if it is uncontrollable. Takeoff and landing was smooth and put my worries about flying to rest."

Pros: "Fast entry... Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Cons: "I thought I booked a QANTAS flight but I was thrown on a very terrible American Airlines flight. Would not recommend."

Pros: "Nothing much. Really poor quality headphones and that too the crew had hard time giving!! I felt they were very rude every time we asked for something (including water!!)"
Cons: "Everything!! They don't have Asian vegetarian meal?? It's all vegan?? Bread roll felt really hard and person behind me asked for butter/margarine and reply was very rude "we don't have any extras" so I didn't even bother asking!!"

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Diversity training"

Cons: "@ last minute My flights changed from Ind-Dev-Spokane to Ind-SFC-Spokane. We were offered free WiFi on flight but it wasn’t true."

Pros: "The plane wasn't very full."
Cons: "The flight attendants did not properly wear their masks nor did they enforce the proper use of masks."

Cons: "Length"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If flights was on time I would not have to miss connecting flight in Dulles I had to stay for 22 hours in Indianapolis to be rerouted"

Pros: "In flight entertainment is provided through a screen in front of your seat. There are many different channels to browse."

Cons: "Going and coming back was delayed"

Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"

Cons: "My baggage was lost."

Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"

Cons: "The booking process for a ticket is not very user friendly and confusing it was the first and last time to use your"Services" for me Can't change it anymore And it was not even a Lufthansa flight carried out by United Airlines Die"

Pros: "Accurate information"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was outstanding . Boarding was easy. Ahead of schedule arrival"
Cons: "Return to terminal required a bus and then off loading like cattle for sale. Came in through maintenance area. One hour from landing to baggage claim. Terrible!"

Cons: "Excellent flight nice ground and flight crew"

Cons: "The tickets we purchased should have taken us from Indianapolis to San Diego with a 2 hour-ish layover in San Francisco.

Our plane landed in Chicago 20 minutes early, but then we sat out on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate despite being able to see 3 or 4 open gates from our window.
