Airline reviews

Pros: "Staff was very friendly and loved the food."
Cons: "For economy class, nothing."

Cons: "Games sollten Nachts gesperrt werden. Die gute Dame hinter mir spielte wohl die ganze Nacht Solitaire und mein Sitz schüttelte immer. Auf meine bitte zu stoppen weder kommentar noch reaktion."

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "I was fortunate the person in front didn’t lean back"
Cons: "On Swiss website I added Rehe preference for a lactose free meal — but none were on the plane. The economy seats are close enough together I needed to hold my book to the side to read."

Pros: "Lots of room on the flight, fresh warm bread, lots of water, nice cabin crew"
Cons: "How do I book a vegetarian meal??"

Cons: "Seats are tiny and uncomfortable!"

Pros: "Always like flying Swiss business class. Great service, good food and a great lie flat bed"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "They charged about $230 to convey my skis, compared to about $80 for the first bag. This is such ab unexpectedly big difference as to be a trap. Swiss Air are, in my opinion, con artists. Do not fly with them."

Pros: "Friendly agents . Speak very good English. Swiss airlines serves breakfast croissants and beverages for a short flight without a charge"
Cons: "The airline fix the booking problem because my trip was from Zurich to Brussels to Washington DC to Austin and went I print my boarding passes only show to Brussels. The booking agent didn’t complete all the way in the computer. I am thankful that I had my original paper and Swiss airlines fix it"

Cons: "Swiss does not know how to handle their own problems and hurt passengers in the process."

Cons: "Seats and leg space were uncomfortable, staff could have been friendlier and more presentable (cleaner appearance)"

Pros: "Swiss Airlines Saff was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "0"

Pros: "Spacious seating available/ snack/staff"
Cons: "No entainment"

Pros: "Entertainment System (technical apparatus neat); Food tasty"
Cons: "Standard Seat Reservation costs money - ridiculous; Selection of movies mediocre; Light meal: "Lasagna"; Not a lot of drink servings except water; Zurich as Transfer airport: another security check hadn't luggage usual;"

Cons: "Because we missed our connection on our incoming flight, due to a delay leaving Newark by Swiss, Swiss cancelled our returning flights. So when we got to the airport on our return day, we were not booked on any flights. We were required to stay overnight and take a United flight home. Will avoid Swiss in the future."

Pros: "The crew was superlative, and after I was stuck for an hour at passport control I found the captain waiting with my dog(in his crate) to make sure of his well being. He said he made sure he kept the climate control at 20c the whole time on the plane. You hear all these animal horror stories but this went above and beyond."

Pros: "Everything was excellent from boarding with almost no delays to the service on board. We would definitely travel with swiss again"

Pros: "The attendants and food were wonderful. One attendant gave me ice for my swollen ankle"
Cons: "Cramped in economy"

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "TV's did not work. Food was lousy."

Pros: "On Board Service"
Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "The head fligh attendant was very nice and welcoming and informative she personally took care of our carry on to put in the check in..."
Cons: "I was not able to buy from the duty free discounted offers on the plane. The discounted shopping panflet was not on my LA/Zurich flight.... so I didn't see it and did not buy then.... And on my second part of the trip Zurich/Nice they refused to sell me to me from the Duty Free because they didn't have time..... :( The dark hair flight attendant in the back of that plane was not informative or nice....I had to talk to the head flight attendant in the front of the plane, she was more professional! Other than that everything was good!"

Pros: "Throughout the long flight, the cabin crew was excellent. They were attentive and friendly. They avoided interrupting quiet time and rest time by keeping off the PA system (well done). The food was fantastic. We were lucky enough to get some business class tickets with points, and the food was amazing. Wine was excellent. This team was quite solicitous of my parent with reduced-mobility. And the bathrooms stayed clean throughout the flight. find this is often an areas where many airlines fall down. And it's too bad, because while I'm 100% sure it is no fun to clean a toilet while in flight, it is a really a big negative for the customers. Overall excellent attention to detail, with a cheerful and "can-do" crew that kept the plane "proper" throughout the flight and provided seamless service. Good stuff. Will fly again."

Pros: "I fell asleep during the meal service and there was not a vegetarian option left over but the crew was SUPER and brought me some other snacks and made my day. Thanks!"

Cons: "They left my bag in Switzerland"

Pros: "Friendly and high quality service"

Pros: "It was a fast flight. Less people on the plain."
Cons: "I did not like that I was in a Swiss airport for more then 13 hrs and the company did not offer me a hotel for the night. Two I did not like that at the airport in zerik they don't take coins."

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "They lost my bag for 6 days. It was an absolute horrible experience. There was a disconnect between their outsourced baggage tracer company and Swiss. Will NEVER fly again."

Cons: "Landed in NY @ JFK with a missing luggage. That happens, I know and it can be ok but the sad thing is the very poor the service offered to take care of it. I have tried to call, no answer, I tried the link they gave me to track progress: NOTHING.... Called customer service, they gave me that number and that link telling me it was the only way!!! I am so frustrated right now!!!"

Pros: "The seats on Swiss' A330-300 are so comfortable in economy. Easy to find a good position to sleep in. Embrear from Zurich to Oslo is tighter, but food and service like in the old days! Bravo!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Flight was fine. The attendants on board were friendly and efficient. The food was nice though there wasn't much variety in drinks."
Cons: "It was awful getting boarding passes and paying for check in luggage in Venice. I assumed we couldn't check in early online much like the earlier Lufthansa flight. Then when we got to the airport there were long lines to check in and no machines to self check in. When we finally got to the front of the line the woman said we had to pay for our checked baggage elsewhere and then come back for the boarding passes. Unheard of elsewhere. The people in the office where you pay for checked baggage took their time and chatted and had no sense of urgency. The first woman we spoke to apparently filled out the form incorrectly. We had to rush to get to the plane and we barely made it through long security lines. We almost missed the plane due to the lack of early information and check in, the cumbersome payment process, etc. It was the worst check in process ever."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was second to none. They were very attentive and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Airline services and great time scheduling"
Cons: "Upon arriving to Chicago airport the Chicago airport couldn't get passengers off the plane due to mechanical issue"

Pros: "I like the space in business class and the staff were really nice"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable, they ran out of scotch (single malt) and I only had 1 drink"

Pros: "I had no idea i would be charged for just one check in bag!"
Cons: "I had no idea i would be charged for checked in bag! Scam!"

Pros: "good service"
Cons: "late departure, stressful to make the connection, had to check in hand luggage even though there was lots of space"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly"

Cons: "Confusion at boarding due to delay & Difficult to hear announced in the crowd & noise."

Pros: "That is wasn't crowded"
Cons: "That I had a 5 hour delay and I was t informed about it earlier"

Pros: "Crew was excellent, and the food was both ample and appetizing."
Cons: "The boarding process is a little chaotic for the economy cabin since there is no distinctions by zone or seat row. The result is a bit of a surge when they first announce the boarding of the cabin."

Pros: "Airline attendants were very polite and nice."
Cons: "Older plane, arm rests did not go up all the way, and missed landing on the initial approach to Newark, which delayed landing for another 20 minutes."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Quality of all services are declining on Lufthansa."

Pros: "The audacity of your gross negligence in a time of global pandemic."
Cons: "Any semblance of social responsibility or ethical behavior."

Cons: "All god nice flight crew helpful. A well organized flight just what you would expect from a German airline"

Cons: "Unexpected $100 baggage fee for second checked baggage"

Cons: "50 min. delay for absolutely nothing. No proper gate available. Only one bus had to serve all passengers from terminal to aircraft. Lufthansa should not operate as a budget airline."

Pros: "Flight landed on time"
Cons: "Gate was constantly changed with no audible notification at the gate and boarding process was mayhem"

Pros: "The crew were really friendly and made sure we were looked after."

Pros: "Crew friendly, attentive. Great plane, comfort, etc. Boarding & disembark easy. Given a little snack as we entered plane was a great touch!"

Cons: "Same as previous"

Pros: "It was a new plane."
Cons: "Cleanliness - there was a pretzel and part of chewy bar between seats. There was no water service on this flight of 12 hours plus. There was no option of vegetarian meal either for dinner or breakfast. I did not want any special meal. There is always choice of vegetarian meal."

Pros: "Crew! They super attentive"
Cons: "A bit more legroom and seat size."

Cons: "All great"

Cons: "The flight itself was good. But the connection wasn't. For this schedule, it is next to impossible to make the connection. The gate that the SEA to FRA flighy arrives at is at least half an hour away from the gate that SEA to MAA leaves from and there is a security checkpoint in between."

Pros: "Flight attendants Was nice and friendly, I do like theirs Sevice ."

Pros: "Great staff. Impeccable service. Nice flight."

Cons: "I flew with Lufthansa about two years ago and the food was soooo much better. The food on this trip was very distasteful."

Pros: "Everything was great. The crew couldn’t have been more friendly or accommodating. It was a very enjoyable experience."

Pros: "crew friendliness"
Cons: "selections in entertainment system is very old."

Cons: "I didn’t like it because when I asked for a big water bottle, they refused to gove it to me while I am sick and suffer dry throat. The space is rather small. If you are 5ft 5 and above person, I honestly would suggest you buy extra legroom for comfortable purposes. Also, there is like 1 restroom on the whole plane and if you sot at the end, you are screw. Lets not forget that they delayed our flights like 4 hours and only gave us 1 voucher for snack. I don’t expect the experience will be fancy but this is a total disappointment!"

Pros: "Great Service from the crew!"

Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly an apologetic for the delay. We had more space on the 1h inner-German connection flight than on our 7h international overnight flight with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Flight departed Duesseldorf an hour late and waited ont he ground in Munich for another 10 minutes before the gateway was connected. Not a problem for us since we were at our final destination but clearly a frustration for many of our fellow passengers. The cereal bar was a nutritional disaster and the the artifical fruit taste was simply awful. Tastes as if LH gets paid for distributing it."

Pros: "The trip from frankfurt to boston was amazin"
Cons: "The plane from beirut ti frabkfurt was old. No entertainment on board, no screens"

Pros: "Real silverware and glasses for dinner and the best blanket on any flight I've ever taken."

Pros: "Crew members are very friendly."

Cons: "Terrible plane: old propeller plane, bouncing in the wind. Inbound flight was late and I guess plane wasn't cleaned in between; had empty coke bottle and wrappers in my seat pocket. Felt like cutting costs and corners everywhere. This was the regional partner, not UA"

Pros: "Movie selection, food, drinks"
Cons: "Lack of information on arrival (where to go, customs, etc.)"

Pros: "The seating went very efficiently and fast. All the flight attendants were extremely friendly. Food was great and there were plenty of movies for adults and kids. Would chose Lufthansa again"
Cons: "I was in economy class and the lady in front of me put the seat back. My knees hit the seat the whole flight and I am not that tall 5.6."

Pros: "Boarding efficient. Chicago counter very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Some flight attendants friendly and helpful, others not so much Don't change your mind about an item or next time attendant will ignore you. If the customer speaks English, do not assume they don't understand German - so please treat your passengers well. Food was not good, have had better on Lufthansa"

Cons: "This was an Air Canada flight. Time in line to check baggage in Frankfurt was 2+ hours, baggage was lost but arrived the next day at our destination. Unable to check-in online ahead of time for unknown reasons. Overall the Air Canada ground experience was pretty bad, but the crew/meals/entertainment was good."

Pros: "They did offer an extra snack and drinks for the delay... but still..."
Cons: "3 hour delay on tarmac, on a 9 hour flight already... not fun."

Pros: "flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour and there was no bathroom service on board"

Cons: "Our flight was scheduled to leave at 7:00 a.m. We arrived at the airport at 4:00 a.m. to check in. When we tried to check in the lady told us our reservation was canceled. Luckily an airport employee worked his magic and had us added back onto that flight."

Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."

Pros: "No ventilation on some terminals toilet economy class."

Pros: "Bad food"

Pros: "On time and a safe flight."
Cons: "Flying ECONOMY appears to be getting worse as time goes on. I have flown Lufthansa before and was very pleased .... but lunches/dinners served with cold wet bread leaves a lot to be desired. Also, when the individual in font of you reclines their seat, it becomes almost impossible to eat your meal. Overall still better than other airlines ... but clear that economy seating is like sitting in the back of the boat with little regard for the passenger."

Pros: "Airplane crew was nice and I was surprised(in a good way) by them giving to passengers sandwiches as a snack."
Cons: "So I actually had a flight that departures at 9:50 AM and it was connection flight after I got to Frankfurt at 9:00, but I missed it cause other gates were too far and moreover Lufthansa staff were not so nice to help me out. Actually, I was running there and got to the gates at 9:40 AM but air hostess said that I've already missed it. They said that I had enough time and that's my fault - I even should be thankful that I don't pay for another flight that I am going to be flying in 7 hours. Bottom line: I got to Kiev at 9:20 PM and moreover, the flight landed 30 mins late. It never happened to me, despite I've been more than on 25 flights. I am shocked by employee's behavior and the situation in general. Would never recommend Lufthansa airline to anyone."

Pros: "The flight was on time enough that I comfortably got to my connecting flight. It was still late and some other passengers were anxious they wouldn't get theirs. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seats were regular seats with the middle seat unused. The "meal" on this early flight (had to leave the house around 4:30am to get to it) was light. I'm glad I had the time to stop at the business lounge first. I don't recall any entertainment system, which isn't a big issue on this short flight."

Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."

Pros: "good service on time performance comfortable ride"
Cons: "movie selection was terrible but worst part was landing and the hand off to United. Getting thru customs at LAX was horrible! had a short connection and both airlines just left us completely on our own. no coordination or help getting thru mind you we were in flying business class! and we got a complete lack of assistance getting to our connection."

Pros: "No communication"
Cons: "Unhelpful and now luggage has been lost going on 3 days in same clothes"

Pros: "The boarding process was very orderly. The flight attendants were very polite and very competent."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."

Pros: "Really liked that glasses water, soda and juice were readily available near the staircase to the bathrooms. The seats were spacious and comfortably reclined. The staff went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable. I appreciated them refilling my cup right after being served a drink because I was thirsty and had immediately drank the first cup. The movie selection was pretty good but could have had more up to date movies. I liked the touch screens."

Cons: "Cramped seating in Economy"

Pros: "Smooth boarding. Excellent service and good food. New plane with bathrooms a few steps below the seating area made for a quieter flight with no lines in aisles. We paid extra for Economy seats with extra leg room and it was well worth it."

Pros: "Professional and courteous flight attendants."

"Great flight Will go again!"

Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."

Pros: "I liked how generous they were with food and drinks"

Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "A little bit chaotic when they loaded two planes at the same time in a very tight space in Amsterdsm but this was most likey an airport soecific design issue and not a KLM issue. The flight was as good as can be expected fir an international flight. The staff was great"

Pros: "Pleasant crew. Appropriate and efficiently served snack."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarkation were slow."

Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"

Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"

Pros: "Crew helpful. Food good."
Cons: "Better range of movies please"

Cons: "We were allowed to choose our seats from SFO to Amsterdam but not for the return flight. I like to be able to choise my seats when I book the flight. Choosing seats 24 hours before is not convenient when traveling for the return trip."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"

Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "He missed it due to having a 32 minute layover, which he ran all the way to board."
Cons: "he had no choice but to look at the closed door of his flight, and wait an additional 7 hours and they didn't even give him a voucher for food. I'm his mother, I'm currently visiting family in Scotland, so couldn't help him much. I'm pretty disgusting and disappointed by the whole experience."

Pros: "The crew were hardworking, responsive, conscientious and friendly"
Cons: "Really poor entertainment choices esp compared to my inbound AirFrance flight. Boarding was pretty disorganized and late."

Pros: "Nice flight, nice crew, and a nice experience."

Pros: "Excellent very good"

Cons: "Please Endeavour to put the expiration date on the food served in the flight."

Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"

Pros: "The staff was very helpful and professional. Promp response to calling for attention."
Cons: "Wish there was better lumbar support for the seats. The food could be a bit more exciting with simple addition of lime pickles. Overall can not complain for economy standard!"

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Cons: "Dutch sub titels would be nice."

Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"

Pros: "The staff at the front desk for the check-in were extremely helpful. I had a complicated issue with my luggage and they helped me to sort it out in the best possible way. Amazing service! Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."

Pros: "staff was fine"
Cons: "old old plane, very uncomfortable. Tiny bad screen made movies pointless"

Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."

Pros: "Eveything is well arranged"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Pros: "Easy airport business"

Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."

Pros: "Wide selection of entertainment, food was good."
Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

"On time departure and early arrival. Luggage retrieval was quick on arrival in Newark."

Pros: "Flight was faster than expected."
Cons: "Stuck with a window seat next to a couple on a group tour. She spilled into my seat so we kept jockeying for better comfort next to each other."

Pros: "What’s to like about flying commercial economy ? The chicken meal was tasty though."
Cons: "45 min delay boarding because the catering was late. Room in the seats. Plug between seats was not very reliable."

Pros: "Very efficient service and crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment skipped a lot and sound was bad. Flight felt very busy overall for a red-eye... Difficult to sleep."

Pros: "Never got on flight."
Cons: "No delays and compensation for inconvenience. Paid extra for seat upgrade which I never sat in."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. I was traveling with my 11 month old and they were super helpful and very friendly."
Cons: "I was bummed that this plane didn’t have TVs at each seat. You were able to stream all kinds of free movies and shows on the United app but I was holding a baby on my lap and couldn’t use my phone as well."

Cons: "This flight was not a Lufthansa flight as advertised. It was a United flight. And they changed the plane, I believe. The two aisle seats I reserved ended up being a middle and a window seat. Grrr..."

Cons: "In both flights the in flight entertainment don’t work, you need to pay for a service that is free in other airlines"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."

Pros: "Not much, no internet, small seats, cost doubled because I had to know pay hotel for a night."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hrs late arriving, therefore I missed my connection flight to Dallas. I had to spend the night at a cost of $200.00 at Holiday Inn, arrived 24 hrs later. Not United fault, weather related. This is my 3rd United flight that was delayed by hours. Get first flight out in morning, less chance for hours of delay."

Pros: "On time. Flight attendant was exceptional."

Cons: "streaming entertainment and wifi were not functioning on this flight Seats are smaller in width (17inches) with the newer seating configuration in economy on the Boeing 777"

Pros: "Snack menu, the plane was moderately clean compared to the last. Good communication about late flight."
Cons: "Staff was mostly rude, tired. The plane was 30 minutes late due to weather. Internet would not work, the captain kept trying to reboot it, no entertainment. An older plane in moderate disrepair. Economy seats were much more uncomfortable than American Airlines."

Cons: "Worst food I've ever had on a plane. Entertainment and internet down for half the flight after a delay at the airport for maintenance. Finally had United app. No free WiFi."

Pros: "That goodness it was a short flight. Seats are small."

Pros: "United staff worked with me to book a round-about itinerary on a different airline that got me to my destination within 8 hours of the original flight. Progress announcements were made at regular, predictable intervals."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled an hour after scheduled takeoff due to mechanical issues. The plane was actually repaired, but the time it took to do so exceeded the flight crew's hours. I understand the practical implications, but in the moment it did feel maddeningly bureaucratic."

Cons: "Flight cancelled with no explanation."

Pros: "One ground agent worked hard to communicate what decision the airline had made regarding the flight delay in response to aircraft malfunction. His words helped establish a priority on which passages need to be rebooked"
Cons: "Flight Attendant communication was less than professional. Speed, pitch, and I found it generally annoying"

Pros: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Cons: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"

Pros: "While it was a long flight it was comfortable and surprisingly the food was good."
Cons: "We ran late as the plane needed some work on it before we could take off; when it was finally done there was a storm and could not take off again. We were behind over an hour before we could leave but we made up for in as we had good tail wind."

Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."

Cons: "My booking confirmation told me we were on Lufthansa flight #7644 so naturally we went to the Lufthansa terminal at the airport. We waited in line to check in and were then redirected to a different terminal because we were actually flying United. How did that happen and why wasn't it explained ahead of time? The seat was too small for an international flight and the entertainment was unwatchable because there was a constant screeching sound in the headphones, a problem with the jack."

Pros: "Not sure!"
Cons: "Crew service"

Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have more room"

Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were not that broad. Music for instance was only podcast?!"

Pros: "First leg of journey cancelled because of weather, so we drove to ORD. Phone agents were nice, helpful, and effective."
Cons: "Somehow, airplane food keeps getting worse. There's got to be a bottom somewhere, but we haven't found it yet."

Pros: "My experience with Air Canada was all around pleasant. I would definitely fly with them again. Any negative aspect during my travels was due to their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "If flying within the States we used United Airlines; a partner of Air Canada. The flight itinerary changed numerous times before our departure, including two days before we left. The change added an additional layover, and put us at our destination nearly 6 hours later than out original booking. This meant we lost a decent portion of the first day of our honeymoon. However, we were forced to stay an extra day when our return flight was cancelled. After spending 8 hours in the airport we were informed that our Monday flight was cancelled, and the next available flight would not be until Wednesday! United Airlines let us down on the way to our destination and on our trip home. Air Canada was great, but I dread having to use their partner United Airlines."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and lights left on so I couldn't sleep."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Process of going through customs in Halifax instead of Newark was very efficient. I didn't order food or use inflight entertainment."

Pros: "Smaller plane, quick luggage delivery on arrival, 20 minutes early arrival time"

Cons: "Food was embarrassingly poor I would rather pay additional fees to upgrade to s quality meal Bags in Edinburgh took over an hour and a half to retrieve But, the flight was safe and the crew very good"

Pros: "United canceled my flightl"
Cons: "United canceled my flightl"

Pros: "Great selection of TV programs"
Cons: "I'm still annoyed that back in December I had a passenger throw chemicals on me that made me sick and that the flight crew could not be found to intervene. All I got was a $150 voucher. It made me very sick and caused permanent damage to my corneas (documented), but no one cared."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I fly out of Halifax once a week and the flight has let 4 hours late two weeks in a row with out compensation. I missed my connection flight and was forced to sleep in airport. Never again Delta all the way."

Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra 155 for a seat in back of 1st class!!"

Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hrs delayed"

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, very professional. The plan was very clean (it helps being new!)."
Cons: "I'm 6'3" , I wouldn't say this was United's fault but the truncated seat size is endemic to the entire industry. But It was SO CRAMPED."

Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Flight was completely full so I was stuck in a middle seat. The seat felt small and cramped, so was unable to sleep at all on the overnight flight. There was no in-seat entertainment (although I could have watched stuff on my phone, if I had previously installed the united app, and had sufficient battery)."

Cons: "Flight attendants were indifferent at best, mean and couldn't be bothered. I travel in 3rd world countries all the time and this was exponentially worse than any travel experience I've had. UAL needs to retire their indifferent employees who are clearly punching the clock until retirement. Several, not all, the flight attendants spent their time in the back gossiping and complaining about UAL management vs bringing out water (which they never did on a nearly 9 hour flight). If you have a choice, never fly UAL international."

Pros: "1st flight left on time and was comfortable."
Cons: "2nd flight missed due to multiple flights from gate 130. No seats close to gate. Speakers not loud enough. Garbled speakers. To much background noise. Very confusing. Was able to rebook later flight but very inconvenient and not optimum."

Pros: "The flight attendant did the best he could knowing I was uncomfortably hot and there was nothing I could do. He gave me an extra ice cream to help :)"
Cons: "Complained to flight attendant about RIDICULOUSLY high temperature of the air craft. Flight attendants told me they had already requested the pilots turn the head down twice. The temperature of the plane made me extremely uncomfortable and unhappy."

Pros: "We left nearly on time, arrived on time and had a pleasant comfortable flight. I went to sleep early and skipped the food and drink, so I cannot comment on this aspect of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Pros: "Overall, this was an OK flight; nothing to brag about."
Cons: "The flight attendant told me that I did not need to collect my bag in Toronto and that it would automatically be sent onward to Halifax. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS. All United passengers arriving in Canada MUST manually gather their luggage at baggage claim in Toronto and clear customs manually. ONLY Air Canada has this automatic option. Even if the United flight has an Air Canada code share United passengers MUST clear customs manually. How hard is this for flight attendants to understand?"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Checking in. We did it electronically When we went to the counter to give our bags extra staff were talking with each other about trying out to be a stripper. No hello. No smile. Just looked at our info and took our checked bags. We pay more for tickets and bags and are getting less service. It is time to bring back customer service"

Pros: "This was a nonstop flight with Air Canada, in cooperation with United Airlines"
Cons: "A small plane, crowded and full, for a non stop, international flight. Obviously, United prefers to use the larger, more comfortable planes for flights through their hub in Chicago- which is always a hot mess!"

Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."

Pros: "United Staff very helpful. When initial flight was cancelled, attempts were made to book on anther flight. Unfortunately unsuccessful"

Pros: "Everything was smooth"
