Cons: "The Soviet Union wants its airline back. This was perhaps the RUDEST airline experience I've ever experienced. I was at Frankfurt (FRA) airport waiting to board Air Moldova Flight 864 to Chisinau (KIV). Due to a delay caused by Frankfurt security (and no fault of my own), I was delayed in reaching the gate. Since it was past my boarding time, I grabbed my bags from the conveyor belt once past security without having time to repack. I arrived at the gate and the extremely rude Air Moldova gate agent on duty yelled at me and demanded that I give her my boarding pass. When I told her I needed to pack, she yelled that there was “no time for that”. When I searched for my pass, she again yelled and said “NOW!”. When I told her that it was not my fault that I arrived late since there was a delay at security, she said “Not my problem!”. After she checked my boarding pass, I tried to repack and she again yelled “There is no time. Go to the bus NOW!” I once again told her that it was not my fault I got delayed and she again yelled “NOT MY PROBLEM”. In addition to rude employees, the airline is clearly in violation of safety regulations. The safety card in the back seat pocket was written in ARMENIAN – and Armenian only, thanks to the plane having been leased and Air Moldova not appropriately changing the safety cards. How did they expect people who read Romanian or Russian (the local languages) or English to understand it! On top of that, the plane was easily 20 years old or more and dirty. If they can't even keep a plane clean or have the appropriate safety cards, what else are they not maintaining. Do not fly this terrible airline!"

Cons: "Great airline"

Cons: "Tight seating"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."

Cons: "Flight was delayed."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "1. There was no beverage service before the meal - that's new to me (travelled 4x around the globe, mostly with LH 2. It took 3 people to open the meal seal with the plastic knife ... 3. You need a written contact with your neighbor about the foot placement - space is so narrow, you need to take turns if you would like to come off the plane without back injuries 4. New custom: serve coffee AFTER breakfast 5. Nobody walked around with water or juice between the meals - you had to wake your neighbor since climbing over someone is no longer possible [either] 6. If you have 2 beverages on your tray and your neighbor needs to get out, you need a third person to assist (impossible to get out of your seat with 2 beverages in your hands (we tried it!) - just too narrow (even for a European Teenager) 7. It was not clearly visible who boards where. An Economy couple standing patiently in line at the Wong boarding line was sent back to the end of the long economy line - although NOBODY was in the business line"

The flight was 2h delayed in NYC because of the mess at the gate coating me a missed connection to Denmark (not that it was necessary have Lufthansa put any effort in speeding up.my transfer like pick up at the gate, gate information before I left aircraft or even as I approached a desk I. Frankfurt as the conneecting flight was late too). On top of that mess I have not gotten my speciality meal and eintertaiment system was malfunctioning the entire flight.

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Our departure was severely delayed due to airport and aircraft crew errors. This meant that I missed my connecting flight in Munich, had to endure an extended lay over, board an extra flight to Budapest and endure an even more unbearable lay over there before being able to reach my final destination in Athens. I paid for a one-stop flight and have ended up having to endure a two-stop flight with extended lay overs. I feel completely cheated out of my money and overall have had a terrible experience."

Cons: "My son Adam is in Mekele Ethiopia having flown most of his journey with Lufthansa. For two days now, his luggage with his nebulizer and asthma medications has gone missing and not ONE person at Lufthansa is willing to help on their end. Since his last leg was with Ethiopian Airlines, Lufthansa is unwilling to help in any fashion or form in helping to track the luggage that flew with them over two flights. They DENY they have any responsibility to help because it's not their "policy." They wouldn't even look into their computers to see where the luggage was last seen. I am so angry that "policy" is more important to Lufthansa than actual human caring about their passengers."

Was then woken by the passenger behind kick my chair which was not comfortable at all and the entertainment system was something out of the 80s, screen so small could see the picture that well and the touch screen was not that reactive. Cabin crew we grumpy. Ashamed this is called British not what I called British........"

Pros: "Early arrival!"

Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."

Pros: "Movies free Staf Comfortable"

Cons: "Jfk massive queue at checkin/drop off"

Pros: "There was nothing I liked!"
Cons: "I couldn't do online check in and was at the airport 2 hours before the flight but they said they cannot give me a seat number and waited there for 25 min to get a seat number. The seats were really uncomfortable (compared to airlines as Turkish airlines and American Airways).The flight attendants were not there to make your flight better, one of them was sulking and was afraid to smile to you but when he was with other crew was able to laugh! Also food was really bad!"

Cons: "3 hour delay"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The food and entertainment options were both above average."
Cons: "The flight was being run by Iberia, not British Airways. Iberia has a policy which did not allow me to check in without proof of a return flight. Unfortunately, my travel partner had booked the return flight and did not share the details with me. I was not able to reach my travel partner and, as such, was forced to buy a new ~$2,300 return ticket on the spot in order to provide the necessary proof. This was an extreme inconvenience, as I nearly missed my flight. If Iberia or British Airways made its travelers aware of this policy in advance of their check in. I have no intention of flying Iberia ever again."

Pros: "This flight did not have much enjoyment due to the extreme delay overseas."
Cons: "There was an ill passenger onboard as we were flying mid Atlantic - instead of flying the aircraft onward we turned around to St.Johns (understandable) however once we arrived we roughly sat on the plane for three hours after the passenger walked off the aircraft conscious. There was paperwork delaying the craft to fly, the re-fueling took over an 1 hour due to not knowing how much fuel to put into this larger plane. There were also difficulties on the plane other then a passenger being ill, the craft had some engine issues after landing in St.Johns - the pilot tried to keep crowd control by lying to the passengers. As we finally got up into the air, knowing that we missed our connecting flight to Budapest from london already- it was stressful. Then as we approached Europe we were told we have to land in Dublin due to the crew working too many hours... Which the pilot had to of known as we departed from St. John's yet he told us we were on our way to London. We waited in the airport in Dublin Ireland for at least 3-4 hours we were told another crew would bring us to London at 3pm yet we didn't even board until 5-6pm. We finally got to London 12 hours after we were suppose to arrive. And to our final destination 14 hours after we were suppose to arrive. I expect a complete refund from this flight from JFK- Budapest. It was the worst experience ever."

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "The air in the airplane was very cold and no blankets were provided. The aircraft seemed very old. Small movie screens on the ceiling, too far away to watch movie."

Cons: "Seating was not comfortable."

Pros: "Once we took off, all went very well!"
Cons: "Disappointed that paperwork issues caused a 2hr delay. the captain kept assuring a take off in "10mins" again and again which got rather annoying after a while!"

Pros: "Nice food, polite, warm and competent staff, blankets and pillows at every seat. Kids enjoyed all the shows. You knew you were not flying an airline that cut corners."
Cons: "Plane crew had to reassign seats since plane used had a different configuration than one listed at check-in. That took a long time, but crew was experienced and calm and handled it."

Pros: "Premium economy seats - even the old ones that were on this flight - are still a better experience than economy but I didn't find the difference in price worth what was delivered."
Cons: "Service was scattered compared to the LHR > JFK leg. No "welcome aboard" drinks, staff seemed very distracted, frantic and a bit disorganised. Food was very disappointing and I'm pretty sure it gave me a sick stomach for 24 hours after."

Pros: "The special meal was horrible"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "As was another flight operated by American Airlines and the second flight connecting us. We were not on it. Still stuck in Orlando trying to get home when this took off. They closed the gate on us early in Orlando leaving us stuck with no way home. . This airline is shockingly bad. It will be avoided at all costs. Not really surprised as the flights with them to get there were very bad also. Go with a different airline. Always."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and accomodating given the delays and the change of planes"
Cons: "The plane was delayed an hour and a half. They had to change the gate twice. The worst part was the plane. The original plane had a problem and they replaced it with a tiny everyday commercial jet for a 7 hour flight. It was extremely uncomfortable and I felt like I got a bit robbed because of how expensive the flight was."

Cons: "It was a mess checking in"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Customers service, politeness and general helpfulness"

Pros: "Not much except that it was a smooth ride once we were up in the air."
Cons: "Space is AWFUL, Boarding waa AWFUL. Airlines consider customers cattle and don’t give a damn."

Pros: "The early boarding and charging ports accesbility?"
Cons: "Just one snack option maybe a few more comps. Also it didn’t have any info on the new airplane. The ride was nice."

Cons: "When my husband retrieved his piece of luggage, it smelled terribly lie dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows all the way down because the stench was so bad and throw away the suitcase I had just bought because of the terrible smell. Just awful to come home to that!"

Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"

Cons: "No individual screen. It would have been nice to know that beforehand. It was an unpleasant surprise."

Pros: "Friendly staff."

Cons: "Too little room for legs and cabin was colder than usual."

Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"

Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."

Cons: "Strange thing: my wife and I were in business class. The stewardess going down my isle said all dinner choices were already used up and I only had a choice of pasta or chicken. Later the stewardess went down the isle for my wife and she had all choices available! Weird. And the stewardess said this was as it was supposed to be."

The staff at the airport were rude and unhelpful and United airlines is unreliable."

Cons: "Delays were caused because the captains lost the fuel sheet and calculated the remaining furl incorrectly. we were delayed 45 minutes for this."

Pros: "Biarding"
Cons: "Internet WiFi"

Cons: "I was lead to believe I was booking a flight on lufthansa. It turned out it was United in a confirmation email a few weeks following the purchase. Then 24 hours prior to boarding, a notification comes in that I am flying Air Brussels. This leaves me with confusion - which airport terminal to go to, where to check in, who to call, etc. When I finally arrive to the airport at JFK, I find there is no Air Brussels Check in and that I need to go to United. But United no longer operates out of JFK, so I was finally directed to the British Airways terminal to check in with Eurowings. The flight was supposedly a Eurowings flight in collaboration with Lufthansa and United but operated by Brussels Airlines. I’ve never before experienced this miscommunication and confusion with one single flight, especially in my home country. When I booked the flight, it was quite clear it was Lufthansa and I paid Lufthansa prices. I was very disappointed overall with the experience leading me up to boarding time and had I known it was not a Lufthansa plane and crew, I would not have booked it. I hope you can I understand my frustration as this was poorly communicated and manasged and was quite misleading from the start. I would appreciate some compensation or recognition for the confusion as I will no longer be using Kayak or third party booking sites due to the way this was handled. I am a loyal Kayak user, but this was just too much and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before."

Pros: "Good food, entertainment options, communication from pilot"
Cons: "none of the flight attendants seemed to be friendly- literally all of them were neutral or slightly rude at best. Not impressed."

Cons: "They never have enough food selections in First Class"

Pros: "Free drinks and a snack."
Cons: "United entertainment app doesn't work on all devices."

Pros: "A+"

Pros: "Screens at every seat, but mine was broken and so were several around me."
Cons: "No power outlets at my seat. No free chat. Wifi should come as part of the ticket price. I feel nickel and dimed and I am tired of it."

Pros: "Crewq"

Pros: "Cheapest flight I could find"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment. My Screen was broken and flight attendants did not fix it so I spent the entire flight in silence"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "United took GREAT care of me. I never departed MCO. They feared i would possibly be stuck in Houston until the next afternoon so they put me in hotel and gave me a food voucher to stay in Orlando. I am leaving to catch the first flight to Chicago this morning and make it to my final destination in time for my evening plans in Iowa. They turned a bad situation around for me. I love that"
Cons: "I would not have made connector in Houston due to delay"

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"

Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "Two hour delay for no reason from Houston to SA"

Pros: "The experience of flying business class is day versus night. The seats are extremely comfortable, the service is excellent, and one feels pampered and relaxed."

Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Cramped quarters. Having to pay for entertainment. I didn't. Pretzels were only food offered. I'm gluten free, so pretzels a no-no. I bring my own bag of walnuts, anyway."

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Flight got cancelled after a 10 hr delay. No compensation offered. Told us too bad so sad. Pushed us off onto American and acted like they were doing us us a favor. Today was the day I swore my allegiance to Southwest Airlines. I don't care if you gave me a lifetime supply of flights and the CEO, your business model pales in comparison to that airline. Disgusted is the only word I can use to describe my experience. Save the hassle, use southwest even if it costs more."
Cons: "Everything. Worst travel day ever"

Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"

Pros: "I was scared until the young man who sat beside me helped me out. He was a military man . ."
Cons: "The bumpy ride! The take off and the landing ..."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very friendly"
Cons: "Since I could not check in the day before I was not able to change my seat. The gate agent was not helpful"

Cons: "Missed second flight due to mechanical problems on first flight. I wish the united app would at least offer alternatives when the flight problem is entirely theirs. But no, they expect you to wait in a huge line. I gave up and took the bus which had wonderful service!"

Pros: "Not much, crew was pleasant enough."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hrs, missed connection, had to spend day in limbo at DIA. Seats were rock hard on aircraft. I flew on UA because of the timing to my destination. 6 hours of travel time turned into a 13 hr experience. boo"

Pros: "It was the best united flight that I've taken in a while"
Cons: "The other customers were the only probably. The flight attendants need to be able to control the passengers more."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "This is the 4th time flying United and every time I experienced a delay and disorganization after delays."

Cons: "I reserved an aisle seat and at the last minute, my seat was changed to a middle seat. Dude told me it was a better seat without saying it was a middle seat. Crew gave me an aisle seat once I was aboard."

Pros: "Food was great as alwaya, staff was ok"
Cons: "Boarding at IAD is difficult, the airport is very space restricted. (At the united terminals) so it makes kt a little uncomfortable. The configuration of the old United planes in business is horrible, 2-4-2. I was on a 4 seat and you don't get your own place. By far, Continental planes are much better. Apart from this: Love United"

Pros: "crew was very polite and friendly"
Cons: "Cramped"

Pros: "The attendants were super nice"

Pros: "I did not like anything about this experience. Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline. He missed his flight. No one helped him."
Cons: "Sent young man Spanish speaking only. Wrote a note and called the airline to inform about language barrier. Gate changed. No one helped him.He missed his flight. was missed inform how he could be accommodate."

Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"

Cons: "Waiting In the airport 6hr waiting on a flight that takes and hour"

Cons: "United airlines plane from SLC to SFO departed 45 minutes late due to maintenance issue. Then the connecting flight from SFO to Bakersfield left 10 minutes early, thus resulting in a small group missing the connection. Spent Father's Day in the airport for 10+ hours to get on the last flight out of SFO to Bakersfield. Customer service was unhelpful and rude until they found out that the issue was at the fault of united Airlines and not external circumstances."

Pros: "Great crew. Good communication."
Cons: "Lazy airline. Wouldn't tell me before hand whether or not flight was delayed or canceled. Waited until flight was invevitably delayed before were were told it was. Cost me a day. Lost work. Asked airline beforehand about conditions due to whether and was blown off like I was a dumb person who didn't matter."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and united told us on the phone that all flights were cancelled for the day. I specifically asked on the phone to be moved to an American Airlines flight later that day, and was told that flight would be cancelled. Drove to the airport because I didn't understand how both the flights were cancelled with perfect weather in the departure and destination cities. The people at the airport moved us to the American flight that I was previously told was cancelled. Would have been much easier to do over the phone, but I was lied to on the phone."

Pros: "Entertainment was good... Kept me engaged... Crew were reasonable with their service"
Cons: "Food tasted horrible. I have travelled in multiple airlines in the past including British Airways, Emirates, South African, Delta and more. Food is by far inferior to any of the other airlines."

Cons: "I was in the last group boarding and the gate agent made me check my carry on bag. I explained it was important to me to keep my carry on with me on the plane. Instead of helping me make it work I was forced to check it at the gate. Upon boarding, there were plenty of overhead spaces for my bag. There was then a mechanical failure, a fuel pump that was faulty. This is not anyone's fault or at all controllable, but the way things were handled was ridiculous. There was 1 gate agent for 2.5 hours handling everyone who needed to re book. In my case I simply needed to cancel my flight (because I had already missed my meeting) and needed to get my bag brought up so I could go home. I was told I needed to wait in line. So I waited for 3 hours. Then waited another 1.5 hours for my bag to come up from bag check. The agents there were not all that helpful or concerned about my experience yesterday whatsoever. I will likely never fly united again and I travel a lot. I will also likely express my dislike for united to anyone I can going forward. In one flight, one experience, you lost this customer for good."

Pros: "Great Entertainment choices"
Cons: "One flight attendant seemed to be annoyed by most people. I am allergic to onions, so I was not able to eat any food provided."

Pros: "Everything met my expectations"

Pros: "It was a good flight no issues arose and the flight attendants were sweet."
Cons: "My headphone jack was messed up so even though I paid for TV I couldn't hear well, it sounded like the speakers were blown. And my headphones work just fine."

Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
