Pros: "Not a long flight, overhead lockers had space although I wasn't helped to find somewhere. Crew lovely otherwise."

Pros: "there is a big amount of space between the rows making sitting very comfortable"

Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "The crew's efficiency and friendliness"
Cons: "Having to fly to Germany to come to San Diego"
Cons: "A bass blasting private event at the airport near Lufthansa gate"
Cons: "Manchester Airport couldn’t organise a bus to take us off the plane. Stuck on a landed plane for ever."

Cons: "There was not entertainment at all"
Pros: "Not much at all"
Cons: "I was enquiringly about the transfer of my luggage from the Hurghada flight with sunexpress with one of the Lufthansa correspondents at the central fest and the guy was absolutely clueless. Needless to say- our luggage wasn’t in Manchester when we arrived. Had to travel back to Manchester to collect it 8 hours later as it was left in Munich. Not happy one bit"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived on time. Efficient service."
Cons: "None. The seats on this Airbus 320 were more comfortable on this leg than on the transatlantic leg of the journey."

Cons: "The food is horrble and leg space"
Cons: "Check in very confusing, switched gates on me but I didn’t get the text until later, after take off. No announcement over the PA system in the airport. If my son, who was picking me up, hadn’t been tracking my flight, I would have missed it."
Pros: "Everything! The service of the flight attendants, in full ugh entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great. I would say that I didn't like the automation and self serve check in at Munich Airport not because it wasn't easy or efficient, but because I love human interactions. I know this is the way society is tending, towards automation, but I don't love it. I prefer to speak to a real person. Thank you for reading."
Pros: "Food, crew and comfort was alright"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. There was not announcement. Everyone rushed to board and was very chaotic"
Pros: "The flight was delayed due to air traffic control issues. It didn't make a difference for me but many people missed their connection. However, the crew were all friendly and the Captain was very outgoing and communicative."
Cons: "Late flights are never good."
Cons: "I made seat reservation in the internet and the LH agent change it"
Pros: "Professional, friendly, helpful staff, especially the Manager at Gates A17 and A18 who helped make sure I got a seat on LH011 after two other, earlier choices I had been put on were cancelled."
Cons: "Lufthansa must work on its domestic-to-international hub feeder system, which is unpredictable. E-mails were sent too late to be useful for knowing what was happening to the original LH009, then LH007 flights, both of which were ultimately cancelled, making the connection to LH400 dicey for the FRA to JFK leg of the trip. Telephone or SMS should have been used for faster contact. I had already printed boarding passes for LH009 about 20 hours before flight time and ultimately arrived at HAM two hours before flight time and thought everything was in order. It ultimately was not, and my checked baggage never made it onto the connecting flight."
Pros: "Changed planes, flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "crew very helpful and accommodating. served two meals and complimentary beverages including beer, wine, spirits"
Cons: "movie selection limited"
Cons: "By the time my daughter got through security the gate had closed and her ticket didn't allow for any opportunity for her to get another flight. Would not book again using Lastminute.com, nor Lufthansa, as they provided a lack of service and no help for her to change her flight - even though the ticket was nearly €200 and she was clearly distressed and upset."
Pros: "Overall, was good!"
Pros: "as usual flight itself was okay"
Cons: "no major complaints"
Pros: "Everything! The food was nice, I liked the entertainment too!"
Cons: "That my fellow passenger took some of my limited space due to being obese:("
Pros: "Exceptional staff, service."
Cons: "I missed flight to Los Angeles because of laziness and carelessness of Lufthansa employees. I came with the train on 12/26/16 at 8:33 am to catch flight to Los Angeles at 10:05 am. I had plenty of time. As soon as got of the train I got into line to check my luggage. I had boarding pass already. Line to check luggage was huge with 2-3 clerks to check luggage for all US flights. After while I complained that I will miss flight to several clerk who were standing around talking on the phones all the time but answer, if I got one was, sir you will be fine. After one hour I got to security check line which was equally long. I complained again no response. With probably 20 minutes left I cut the line on my one mad as hell. I got at 10:00 am at the gate and some older lady was like " Sorry sir we closed the flight". I said "What do you mean, it is 10 am and flight is at 10:05am??? "Sir we sold your ticket" I couldn't believe her words. Anyway they sent me to Munich to catch flight to LA next day. Best part I HAD TO PAY HOTEL IN MUNICH BECAUSE LUFTHANSA DID WANT TO COVER EXPENSES. I don't know what happened to famous German organizational skills or this is just Lufthansa and her careless employees."
Cons: "This Air Canada flight was operated by Lufthansa and was cancelled due to the strike. So, this means that I am still in Germany which is not the worst place in the world to be stuck, especially because my parents live here. So a few day longer are not a problem for me, but if it takes a week, it is not good because I am supposed to be at work and I am using up vacation I had planned to spent with my family."
Pros: "The staff on the flight were friendly, food was good and the overall flight was pleasant."
Cons: "The ladies at the check-in counter were very rude. Completely disregarded my wife and I. Then made jokes to each other, while servicing us."
Pros: "Crew passed out drinks and food as passengers requested. Very very courteous and extremely caring. Airport, boarding, and everything else went flawlessly."
Cons: "I don't know whether it was the airplane or the seats, but something was squeaking for the entirety of the two hour flight"
Pros: "Crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Better comfort, cushions were hard"
Pros: "Great nonstop, friendly crew"
Pros: "Seat was okay. We sat on the tarmack when we arrived and missed our connection flight. United was able to get us on a flight home in 2 more hours. The immigration counter was the real roadblock. One agent and 500 people"
Cons: "Being able to make our flight"
Pros: "The crew was responsive and very friendly."
Pros: "Nice & quick! Made me feel safe even though it was icy!"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Boarding, no surprises, flight: comfortable take off, flight, landing, coffee, on-time, carry-on baggage"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all (had it connected but it was too slow)"
Pros: "Aircrew great along with gate agents."
Cons: "First class flying is gone. No lounge access in the US. No meal (boarding at 1720 and arriving 2100) Beverage service the same in front as in back. Need to go back to Asia to get what you pay for."
Pros: "Liked the exit row."
Cons: "Hated the delay of more than 90 minutes."
Pros: "On flight entertainment was provided"
Cons: "Even though I booked two tickets together at the same time months before the flight, and there was no option to reserve the seats in advance. when we arrived at the airport we had to go to the gates to get our seats and we were separated, both middle seat exit row on opposite aisles. We asked if any changes could be made and we were told we chose economy seating and all the seats were booked. I will avoid flying with uUnited going forward"
Pros: "I liked getting off the plane. Staff really hates their job."
Cons: "The screaming kids, the rude staff, the extra hour on the tarmac with "4 planes ahead of us" followed by "a few planes ahead of us" which meant we all had OVER AN HOUR TO USE THE RESTROOM but weren't allowed. Some people were in the lavatory for 15 mins and your crew knocked on my door after less than 5. Could have sworn at the stewardess it was so rude! 0/10, would rather fly a kite"
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time flight."
Pros: "made it home safe"
Cons: "Boarding protocol. we were traveling together and were placed on opposite ends of the aircraft. very cramped seats. would prefer not to fly them again."
Pros: "The crew was very kind, professional and accommodating."
Cons: "I paid extra so that we could have more leg room and be closer to the front of the plane yet upon embarking we were part of the last group to board. We sat in the first isle directly behind firstclass yet borded. virtually last. I was told by the flight attendant that because I purchased my airfare through Kayak as opposed to the airline was the reason behind this. I had no idea that this was the case and on top of spending the additional fee for upgrading, I was disappointed. I have a 0 star for entertainment because there was no N/A as a selection choice. There were no movies or entertainment aboard this aircraft."
Cons: "Rebooking through united was a nightmare"
Pros: "service was good. instructions in English & Portuguese."
Cons: "lavatories didn't work below 5,000 ft. It was extremely cold so I had to put on my coat. Seats of course are very uncomfortable."
Cons: "After the entire flight was boarded & ready to go the plane had a mechanical issue before take off. Had to sit on the plan for 90 minutes before we were allowed to exit the plane. No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special. United staff where nice to make the best of the situation."
Cons: "It was a red eye flight so we expected the crew to be more sensitive to the fact that people would be trying to get some sleep to help adjust to the time change ahead in England. The crew, one girl in particular was so incredibly loud as she walked up and down that it was impossible to sleep. She shouted over me and my husbands head despite seeing us asleep, to speak to the third person in our row. It made our journey much more difficult and our arrival in Manchester start the wrong way. Really disappointing and totally controllable."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and worked well together."
Cons: "Small delay before takeoff."
Pros: "Landed safely. The stewardess was very nice and engaging."
Cons: "My plane took off late from Wichita, and missed departure to LA in Denver by five minutes. Despite their being several of us, they didn't hold the plane. It's 7:39 before I'm guaranteed a make up flight because I'm told by customer service that united flies fewer flights during holidays periods despite being the busiest season of the year. United did nothing to make up for the night with family they have taken from me on vacation."
Pros: "The crew! Very nice people :)"
Cons: "Small plane, broken media pads and headphones. Food was awful."
Pros: "Staff were very polite and courteous. Friendly and kind. The flight was on time and smooth. I really enjoyed my time and the stewardesses were awesome."

Pros: "Free WiFi with Free Entertainment movies."
Cons: "Delayed flight, had to wait on the airplane that had a late departure out of NYC"
Pros: "Nice Airplane and all good except the service. Can't complain about anything but the unfriendliness of the flight attendants. The food was not as god as foreign carriers but basically OK."
Cons: "The service was very curt and unfriendly. This seems to be typical on United International flights when flying in Coach! I've spoiled myself by flying on foreign carriers who all have MUCH friendlier flight attendants, better food, and no charge for drinks. that would include Air France, KLM, Turkish, LOT and British Airways."
Pros: "Nothing stood out."
Cons: "having to wait for the flight crew"
Pros: "crew very nice and helpful"
Cons: "seats uncomfortable and food adequate. arrived in newark late and arrived in manchester england late but no problem as no connection."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself. I try to use the liegjt above my seat to call for another staff and this lady yelled NO No No you have to stand up and get it yourself. Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"
Pros: "The crew was awesome!!!! You did a great job"
Pros: "Boarding efficient and latest films available. Price excellent."
Cons: "Food ."
Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."
Pros: "They put me and my son in the very last row of the airplane. I realize this is probably the only way I could afford to fly so I will put up with it, but it isn't very comfortable for 73 year old woman."
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Everyone was great helped me make my flight on time and great service."
Cons: "Flight attendant, LaToya, was the rudest I've ever encountered on United. Didn't greet anyone, basically slammed drinks down on the tray tables, didn't say goodbye to us when departing, and was overall very unpleasant. Could tell she didn't want to be there."
Pros: "Everything smooth and on time."
Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."
Pros: "They put us up in a reasonable hotel"
Cons: "United operated leg had no inseat entertainment for an 11hr flight. Isle seats had half of legroom taken up by mysterious metal box. Flight was canceled after three hours in the plane due to mysterious smell. Followed by stampede out of the plane, into hotel, etc. No compensation obviously, #America."
Cons: "Because of United's failure in Pittsburgh, I was unable to make it to IAD to fly from Washington to Manchester."
Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "- we didn't know that we need the United app on our phones before departure (for example, my daughter, too) :( - the flight was overbooked and seats in Economy were challenging - plugs fell out of sockets permanently because of our legs/feet"
Pros: "The crew kept us up to date on the ATC delay."
Cons: "Weather in the DEN area and Eastern Colorado generated a ground stop in DEN delaying our departure from ICT for about 2 hours. Even with the overall delay in DEN my SMF flight was long gone putting me on a late flight into SMF. This of course lead to a short night's rest...just another day of travel on the airlines."
Pros: "It's always worth the extra money to fly United! I love this airline."
Cons: "Too warm in flight. Did not run Ac enough."
Pros: "Food was a bit better than I expected. Videos kept going out. Staff were great. Plane landed well!"
Pros: "The plane was clean. Boarding was great at Wichita."
Cons: "All flights should have free wifi and power hookups. Greyhound does this, why shouldn't united."
Cons: "Arrived SIX hours late, did have luggage which was nice."
Pros: "Kayak did a perfect job of alerting us via email in a timely manner when changes were made to gates and flight times. I napped the whole flight, so no food or entertainment issues."
Cons: "I forgot to choose specific seats for our return flight. My fault."
Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"
Pros: "Was a very good service; thanks to all"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. I was traveling with a baby and there was no gate agent anywhere to be found to help us get re-routed after the delay caused us to miss our connection. Terrible experience with United."
