Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "Excellent crew. Very good food. Comfortable seats."
Pros: "Same as before"
Cons: "Same as before"
Pros: "The 1-hour complimentary wifi."
Cons: "Hope they had the immigration/arrival card on the airplane."

Pros: "Crew was good and helpful. Food was good. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "They could have given me an other flight so that I could attend the wedding I was going for. I gotta flight after 12 hours and 10 hours lay-off in Doha. Even if I didn’t get that long layover, I could have been able to attend the wedding."
Pros: "Airlines' diligence in arranging an alternative flight in place of the missed connection because the initial departure from JFK was delayed due to technical reasons"

Pros: "If we had arrived on time everything would have been perfect. However I did not arrive in Johannesburg because a flight delay (even though our flight was set to let ontime) caused probably 40 people to miss their connections. To their credit, Qatar Airways did find accommodations for us and gave us food vouchers. Otherwise it'd be a zero rating."
Cons: "Boarding took far too long and caused us to be an hour late. Because of this, I am missing out on events scheduled in South Africa. This is very upsetting and it appears that Qatar Airways is too slow with boarding, there was no explanation given for why it took so incredibly long to board."

Cons: "The flat bed is narrow and VERY hard."
Pros: "The flight itself was very enjoyable. The only negative aspect was that the first leg of the flight was delayed long enough that I almost missed my connecting flight and my baggage was lost."
Cons: "The real reason for the negative review is a combination of the cost of this flight, loss of my baggage and poor service after the flight. I paid nearly $4,500 for an economy ticket from New York to New Delhi. The first leg of the flight, from New York to Zurich was delayed long enough that I made my connecting flight to Delhi within seconds of them closing the gate and as a result my baggage was lost. Once I got to Delhi I had to take a connecting flight to Goa and then drive an hour to my destination, where I was attending a good friend's wedding. All of my baggage was lost during transit by the airline, and unfortunately they never delivered by baggage to my hotel...so I was without formal clothes and normal clothes for the wedding for 4 days. The customer service line was no help, and the airline refused to deliver the baggage to me...the closest they would bring it was the Goa airport which was an hour and a half away."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They were all multi-lingual and ready to help foreign travelers. The food was good. The plain wasn’t overstuffed with people - actually there were enough open seats that everyone could have a little extra space. Will always check Swiss Air first for international travel."

Pros: "It was nice because plane was half empty so had quicker attention from stewards - everything was good."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and courteous. Everything from check in to landing was simple and streamlined."
Cons: "If I were a small person I would have been almost comfortable the seats were so narrow with no leg room so that trying to find a place for myself was laughable, unfortunately not the funny laughable. There is not a chance that I will ever again book an international flight on Swiss. I hope you share this with the airline."
Cons: "The headset outlet is still the old one, so you can't use your own ."
Pros: "It reminds me of school dinners"
Cons: "Bland, over cooked No thought into the presentation or flavour"

Some were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "I could notice The crew was really attentive and took good Care of passengers Who speak german or were from Swizertland, meanwhile with The rest of The passengers they were not really nice at all."
Pros: "The steward was friendly"
Cons: "1) Assigned seat but was allowed to change seat 24 hours before online check in but at baggage drop off at airport, I was shocked that Swiss Air did not abide to our selected seats changed and gave us the initial seat assigned. 2) At airport check in, none of the ground crew able to gave us good explanation or assistance. 3) Enterainment has to reboot twice. Audio selection cannot be play. No USB port for charging phone."
Pros: "I like that Coke Zero was available."
Cons: "My chair was stuck in the fully reclined position for a good portion of the flight and my wife's chair was constantly being knocked into by the passenger behind her because his seat was too short for him.

There was a loud, obnoxious passenger next to me who almost got into a fistfight with another passenger until the stewardess came to calm him down."

Cons: "Better organized boarding"
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: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."

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"

She actually swore at us!! We were only able to rebook by calling the Lufthansa call centre and had to spend a very uncomfortable overnight at the airport without any certainty of when we would fly out.

The confirmation number was: KAYAK Booking Reference KE40651 British Airways Record Locator 3IMN38 Booking Date Jan 24, 2021 So British airways cancelled the flight may days before the flight date and they notified Kayak but Kayak sent me no notification. At the time of check in we found that the flight was cancelled. It was such a hassle. I called kayak to rebook frantically since it was very important to travel right away. Your customer service was pathetic. I was told to cancel my british airways reservation and then I have to wait 24 hours for another department to call me to talk to me about rebooking choices. There was no concern from your customer service that since u are at fault so make correction for it right away by rebooking it. You guys didnt inform us for cancellation of the flight that happened days before the flight. I didnt like what Kayak rep was telling me and called British airways again to see if they would do something. They then were able to rebook me the following day with 2 stops instead of one stop which I had booked. So my parents took the flight with one day delay with extra stops. I had such a horrible experience with Kayak. I will never rebook from Kayak again."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours because of hydronic issues. I feel asleep and missed the food which was part of the ticket wasn’t woken up. 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.

Cons: "They lost my luggage and they have wo"

Pros: "I loved the crew - they were very helpful and communicative. The food was also good, and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "My seat would not recline, so when the lady in front of me reclined her seat, eating and watching movies became difficult. The crew were very helpful in trying to solve the problem, but the seat was broken so they could do nothing to help me. They offered to move me and my son, but we had settled in and so decided to decline the offer."

Cons: "Sat on runway for 45 minutes with no updates"

Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "Plane was small and uncomfortable. The plane was again delayed. 4 flights with United. ALL 4 delayed."
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."

Cons: "The check-in was done by machine and the ticketing crew didn’t mention that the luggage was going directly to destination nor was my gate info for the second leg of my journey printed on my ticket. You’d figure United would know this info a few hours prior to departure."
Cons: "We missed the whole vacation due to United flt. 599 being late into SFO. We missed the Zurich flight by 7 minutes due to a mechanical issue (overhead bin lid would not stay closed.) United customer service was very poor and after 16 hrs. at SO without resolution on flights and schedule, we just came back home. If Siss Air could have waited 10 minutes for 12 or more passengers, we would have been fine. I don't know if United communicated with them or not. This was a disaster!"
Pros: "mediocre service"
Cons: "constant delays"
Pros: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "I was on a business trip and needed internet during this 10 hr flight from London to San Fran. Paid 40 bucks for internet and got abt 15 minutes of it. Extremely frustrating. Flight attendants bewildered about what to do about it."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Plane made good time and both flights on time."
Cons: "Plane was 80+ degrees until after takeoff. My girlfriend complained unrelentingly about this on both legs until it was resolved. I don’t know my way around Houston airport but it seemed like we landed several kilometers from our connecting gate. Probably not something that could be avoided but aggravating nonetheless. Also I pooped on this flight and no one would have known except for the lady sitting in the back made a comment about how long I was in the lavatory (5-7 minutes?). Rude."
Pros: "Large aircraft half to 3/4 full, so boarding and leaving were smooth."
Cons: "Flight attendant passed me by when he was collecting food orders. I never had the chance to get food."
Cons: "My united app didnt find my flight;"
Cons: "No wi-fi"
Cons: "Plane had very little luggage space. I'm explorer card holder boarding should be priority I was in group 2. Food was not of good quality hence lot of people left it. 3. Sets were too narrow."
Pros: "14 hour flight. The legroom in economy seating on UA 82 is an absolute joke if you are 5 feet 6 inches or taller. I am 5' 11" Charging $200 premium for economy plus which on united is a few more inches of legroom unlike other carriers where it's a step closer to business class."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working for the duration of the flight (14 hours). Legroom in economy seating $200 premium for 4 more inches of legroom No automatic upgrade for silver star loyalty membership even though plenty of seats available."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly"
Cons: "A fight attendant accidentally spilled a drink down my back. To compensate, she offered me an alcoholic drink. I can't drink alcohol. I asked if I could move to another seat that was dry and she said I'd have to pay $130."
Pros: "At boarding there were delays which the boarding personnel updated as they had information. After boarding flight crew passed out water while we waited on the tarmac for hours while a maintenance issue was reviewed. Safety protocols that had a engine issue looked at on the ground prior to putting us in the air. Curry chicken was good."
Cons: "Several issues that caused this flight to be late. Part of the issue was the plane was not available to be in the gate on time. The longest delay was on the tarmac for over 2 hours as an engine was analyzed. Does this suggest need for more regular maintenance? I don't know. Given the delays I think United could have done more in recognition of the delay to its customers on the flight such as not charging for some of the services they normally charge for like wifi access and such. As it was I was delayed on both legs of my trip by a minimum of an hour. United should do better."
Pros: "Rhe crew again"
Cons: "Food options weren't good."
Pros: "I'm 73. Delayed an hour from SLC for no apparent reason meant racing like crazy with 5 mins to make my connection. I'm in good shape for my age but I'm 73! I was the last one to board and barely made it. Very stressful"
Cons: "Crew was friendly but let's face it, I didn't expect much from united and their recent antics publicly"
Pros: "Charging availability for my devices on board."
Cons: "No wifi available!"
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "The updates I received on my phone for delays and change of gates was faster than the agents would/could announce."
Cons: "When workers were walking the aisle, it was hard to get their attention."
Cons: "Plane was hot no air and super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Very good information"
Pros: "Empty flight."
Cons: "WiFi didn't work. Flight was late and the in flight service was lacking. Seats are extremely small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "6 Feb from Newark to Delhi the Tv out of order no one is helping hand in the flight poor service. Only one thing is good that flight is well in time"
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Flight attendants and boarding crew were great!"
Cons: "Seats are very crammed in in the back of plane"
Pros: "Crew members were actually quite rude at times."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "I am handicapped. Boarding agent abused me. Made me walk to plane on tarmac in stocking feet. Asked for wheel chair and was denied. Have congestive heart failure and could hardly make it on the plane. The man should be fired. Deputy sheriff with him was just as bad glad to go into more detail with someone. Will report united to govt. small Airport would not ever be reorder."
Pros: "Very organized boarding process."
Cons: "Entertainment/tv none unless you pay. Food...small bag of dry mix snacks or pay. Not asking for prime steaks, but a fruit would have been nice."
Pros: "Very comfortable and flight was on time. Flight attendants were friendly and polite."
Cons: "The fact that you had to pay for one check in luggage"
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. Also plane was too hot. No air circulation."
Pros: "We booked our trip on United and they were the most accommodating airlines for the deaf (3 deaf in our group of 6) by far. They made sure we were all set, came by our seats to ask if we needed anything, etc. I will definitely fly United every chance I get."
Pros: "Loved being able to watch a newer movie in flight. Enjoyed the pillow and blanket and the ability to charge my phone during flight"
Cons: "The plane was a little over crowded."
Cons: "I booked a window seat and when I got to PDX I did not have a seat. United worked to rearrange seats so couples could sit together, which I do understand but I ended up with a middle seat on a redeye flight."
Cons: "There were a lot of children on the flight."
Pros: "Not much, except the fact that it could have been worse."
Cons: "- Cheap quality food. And less in quantity. Less options. And they ran out of meal options even though I indicated them at the time of booking. - Not so clean - Sickness bags were used ones and had something in them. Clearly, they were not replaced. Toilets didn't have basic supplies like moisturizers. Not to mention they were super cramped. - Entertainment system was out of 60s. Small LCD and were of the smallest resolution and viewing angles - made watching anything akin to watching those cam rips floating all over internet. - Cramped leg room. And the premium seat didn't have any better room. Overall, one of the poorest flights I have ever flown on. Even Air India has much better planes and service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than two hours. Entertainment was working intermittently."
Cons: "Terrible experience in onboarding.. Later on i was made to sit in flight for 5 hours at mumbai airport"
Pros: "Free movie on flight to Denver was nice.... Free movies and internet was nice because I didn't have to dig around for a credit card and you pay enough for tickets anyway, that it SHOULD be free. Its there for one person, EVERYONE should be able to use it. So it was a nice perk to kill time! Boarding was awesome, but only because I have a handicap"
Cons: "I just don't like my soda poured from a can into a tiny cup....Just give me a cold can of soda for the 3 hours....geez."
Cons: "It was late boarding and landing. Our bags were sitting in the rain."
Cons: "The crew did not seem to enjoy their jobs and can the seats get any more uncomfortable? It really is okay to put some padding in the seat cushions. Is it really necessary to charge for the movies?"
Pros: "crew personable"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
