Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"
Pros: "Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy!"
Pros: "They were awesome."

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"

Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"
Cons: "15 min late boarding 30 min delay leaving the gate Very little leg room"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Cons: "Completely none sense to change the time of départure (30 min earlier) with just a simple email 24h before and w/o sending a text on mobile phone."
Pros: "Entertainment, cabin crew great."
Cons: "Seat layout may now be standard but is still cramped."
Pros: "The Free glass of wine was a very nice surprise."
Pros: "Entertainment included screens in front of every seat, plus tv/movies over Wifi on my iPad, with a good selection."

Cons: "Food was not good, flavor wise"
Cons: "Some crew members don't know how to tolk to passengers they were rude and also they offer coffee for the second time and they said that they don't have more milk come on"
Cons: "United Airlines has really gone downhill"
Pros: "It went smoothly"
Cons: "No service"
Pros: "Our flights arrived just in time, and everything was set up for us to be on time in our destination."
Cons: "There was just ONE lady trying to check all the passengers in. Obviously, it was complicated for her since no other people tried to help her registrate lots of passengers. We could have lost our connection flight, if she hadn’t made it on time. This happened in Panama."
Cons: "You didn't get my bags to airport on time and so I missed my connecting flight which was 90 minutes after my previous flight, I have an 8 month old son and you made us spend another 4 hours waiting for a flight."
Cons: "There is not food and not entertaiment"

Pros: "The crew was nice and professional."

Cons: "Not enough choices for dinner. It was salmon yuck"
Pros: "The crew on the United flight were kind and helpful during the flight"
Cons: "The change of the departure of my flight The miscommunication between airlines No customer service of united airlines in Panama during transit and not being presented with all the boarding passes when checking in. The old business class seats were very uncomfortable. Having no help from representatives to issue a boarding pass"
Cons: "We should be able to watch a movies without having to pay for internet or the movie what else are they gonna take away ?"
Pros: "The marvel of flying. Hurling through the air in a metal tubeZ amazing. We got there safe and on time. That’s what I liked about United. Oh and there was a CSR that was helpful in changing to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Bathroom disgusting. Crew just trying to get through the work day. Seats too close and REAL uncomfortable. Like sitting on a plastic frame with a piece of fake leather over it. Entertainment was awful. Oh wait, non existent since it was an “out of country” flight so there was no access to movies (that you had to PAY for). Otherwise you got to watch Matthew Perry in some taxi game show over and over and over and over on a monitor in your face that couldn’t be shut off. United is my last choice in airlines. But we did get to the destination safe and on time."
Cons: "No outlets"
Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."

Cons: "Seats are really narrow and hard. They don’t recline much."

Pros: "The employees work good."
Cons: "No food for almost 6 hour fly, no tv."
Cons: "The yogurt that was served in business class was out of date by 10 days"
Cons: "Ive never flown with United Airlines internationally and now that I have I never will again. I had just flown with COPA airlines from Colombia to Panama and it was great. I thought I would have a similar experience with United, but alas it was not. You have to pay for movies and food on an international flight?! what is that! terrible terrible"
Cons: "Bad, bad, bad"
Pros: "Boarding to the United, was smoth"
Cons: "Menu; Menu selection was none except for a sandwich. The crew was not friendly at all. Courteous by doing their work, but not friendly and welcoming at all."

Pros: "The captain continually updated is as we were waiting for a gate to enter."
Cons: "The wait in SFO was long. The plane was warm without air circulation. My connecting flight was not held for me and actually departed 10 minutes early. I had to wait 4 hours for the next flight at which I was told they would seat me at the end of boarding. I was never seated and after repeatedly asking was told they would get me on the next flight. Poor customer service."
Pros: "Unforeseen delay was well managed by United!"
Cons: "Paying for entertainment ($7.99 for long flights) not good at all. The crew didn't offer to check/ review the menu. Ps: in my flight Houston- Panamá city the entertainment was free through the united app. Also,there was free wifi during my flight ( very good)"
Cons: "Boarding was stopped due to plane maintenance, there was a delay, the flight attendants had to be seated the entire time due to turbulence so I was very hungry and thirsty and received no food or beverages. I almost missed boarding because the staff said they would deplane the passengers in the middle of boarding and would be another 20 min but instead continued boarding. I would expect to have at least some water for the price paid."

Pros: "Organization for boarding and the seats. The staff was awesome"

Cons: "I was very displeased with the boarding process in Panama City. We were moved from the boarding area without explanation and asked to screen our luggage again at the gate. I had to discard a full bottle of water that I purchased after the first security check. It would have been nice to know about this before so that we could consume our water and use the rest room before boarding. Very frustrating!"

Pros: "It wasn't crowded/full flight, so that was nice. Otherwise everything else was below standards."
Cons: "On the flight from Houston to Panama city we experienced United's personal entertainment where you could use your iPad to watch movies. The Carmel/waffle treat was amazing and they offered a full can of soda. On the reverse flight, this flight that I'm reviewing, none of these amenities were offered. Additionally the temperature cycle between ice cold and quite uncomfortably warm."
