Pros: "Crew was fantastic, seats and entertainment was great. Very good food choices."
Cons: "Everything was very good."

Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"
Pros: "KLM was a great experience compared to Airitalia. The food was good, the flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Time was excellent even considering a connection delay they had. Very polite crew members. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Cabin was crowded. Leg room was scarce, short seating space. Almost no room for sleeping if you're not a frequent economy traveler."
Cons: "lost baggage"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Service was great as usual. Food was very good and entertainment options were great so you won't have to be bored throughout the trip."
Pros: "Everything is alright"
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Cons: "I’ve traveled a lot internationally and this was the WORST flight I’ve ever had to endure. I felt like I was being tortured and didn’t sleep at all and so slept when getting into Amsterdam rather than being able to explore the city. I was out $200 for the Airbnb (could’ve stayed in the airport cheaper) and $200 for a dinner cruise I slept through. NEVER AGAIN"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Cons: "... ear plugs, masks, good food or even picking seats? I remember when it was all complementary and standard on overnight flights. Oh, and the vegetarian breakfast was unfortunately poor as well. I know you can do better, because you used to."
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."
Cons: "After more than two hours of delay... Initially the flight takes off was at 8:35... Then 21:20... Then 21:50... Then 22:10. Finally we took off at 22:40... Refund our money klm..."

Cons: "They stole my money"
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "had problems checking in , in that I was charged for a suitcase! I have since checked my paper work and found thad that I had paid for a case! I will follow this up when I return to the UK"
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Cons: "The Guy who had an accident when boarding causing a delay. Also I didn’t like the wait fir checking as passengers with children went before business class and should be after."
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "Early departure, and early arrival at our destination."
Cons: "The plain was cold It’s the first time ever I had get my coat on because of the temp No in seat screens and expensive WiFi"
Pros: "United does it better than low-cost carriers"
Cons: "Not worth the additional cost over low-cost carriers"
Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."

Pros: "Not much but it was the best price"
Cons: "The space was so tight I couldn't open the lid to my laptop. I had a small personal item, the gate checked my bag, and there was no room for my feet. I just flew Alaska, delta, American,d Lufthansa recently and none of those airlines were as bad. Like a sardine can. I will avoid United at Ll costs."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants were dis-engaged. No smiles. Not pleasant. RUDE to those wairing for bathroom. Not polite nor particularly helpful. Could not understand pilot at all. No one could dicipher his message. NO emtertainment without extra cost... on 4 1/2 hour flight!! Shame on you United! BOOO. Hardly anyone paid for entertainment. Very boring and hard flight. Will give another airline my $500 next time. Everyone who buys a cross-country ticket should get free entertainment. NO food except one cookie on 4 1/2 hour flight. Are you kidding?? I was starving! A small snack-meal was expected for the high cost we pay for ticket. BOO UNITED. UNTIL UNITED PUTS CUSTOMER SERVICE AND COMFORT FIRST... I and my family will be flying another airline. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "Although there were a lot of passengers on this flight, the crew was able to get everyone on the plane in an efficient manner."
Cons: "We were delayed about 2 and a half hours because of the weather in Denver. I was not comfortable at all in my seat because the passenger beside me had his knee and elbow all in my personal space. I asked an attendant if it was okay for me to move and she stated that it was okay, but United switched a lot of passengers flights around so there wouldn't be any empty seats. I was stuck beside the man, all hanging out of my seat, because there wasn't an open seat available. Thank goodness the flight was only 2 hours long. Overall my experience with United was terrible and I will not be flying with them anymore."
Pros: "We were unable to board our flight because my passport was not within the 6 month expiration date required by Italy. We were offered no credit regarding the missed flight and told that our return flight was also void. Given that we entered our passport info to originally book the tickets, we should have been notified that the expiration date was not valid. A the very least our return. flight should have been valid."
Cons: "Not atypical of this airline and flight, we sat on the tarmac for 1 hr 45 minutes after boarding for a repair."
Cons: "3 hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "My only real issue was that, upon checking in online, I was informed that my boarding pass would be emailed to me. I don't believe it ever was. I checked all of my various email folders, including spam, and saw nothing."
Pros: "Flight to Italy fine"
Cons: "Flight was a Lufthansa flight operated by United, sold by webjet...there is not a United counter in Malpensa. Train was delayed, we arrived an hour b4 Flight, would not let us board. United is offering FREE re ticketing but webjet is extorting 480.00 additional on top of the 641.00 ticket...6 calls to webjet..several hours of frustration. I have used kayak for years...I will research reviews on all future purchases thru this web sites associates. Kakak...webjet is creepy company...check their references...yuk!"

Cons: "Pretzels are not good snacks"

Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The entertainment on board was limited, shoddy, and frankly disappointing. Why you are asking customers to download the United app instead of providing onboard entertainment like almost every other airline in the world is unknown to me. In comparison with other airlines (particularly airlines in Asia), it was downright egregious. The airlines top people obviously have no interest in providing any comfort for the those who are unwilling to pay the extra money. I do not understand why the airlines believes people should have to pay for their own meal on a 7 hour flight when they've already shelled out the money for the flight. In addition, why should I have to pay an extra $89 for a so-called premium aisle seat? It's completely inexplicable that the state of all airlines in America have fallen to this level."
Pros: "The crew and ground staff kept us fairly well updated"
Cons: "An excessive delay that included having a part flown to Monterey from Los Angeles"
Pros: "We loved the convenience of booking a United Flight through Kayak. Planes were clean and no delays!"
Cons: "See above comments."
Cons: "The fact I had to buy a tv package when on my previous"
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "We did not get headphones. We were told by a very flip attendant that they ran out. No apology! It was a long flight without entertainment. On our trip TO Hamburg, we had earphones, but NO screens. So both our flights, to and from Hamburg, were disappointing"
Pros: "Good it was."
Cons: "It was the tiniest, most uncomfortable plane I have ever been on. The inflight entertainment was horrible, everything needed their app, which you can only download with internet and there is no notification about this prior to take off. Seat was horrible, tiny, I was in pain after the flight...never again"
Pros: "Nice specious plane but seat backs were concave and offered no support"
Pros: "The stewardesses were kind."
Cons: "United didn't even try to hold my connection even though I could have made it if they held it 10 minutes (and it had no further connections). Instead they sent it out early. They had no other flights to my destination until 3pm the next day. The hotels were full and no rental cars were available."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The plane the service and overall United as an airline"
Pros: "The amenities are fabulous. The flight was very comfortable."
Pros: "The flight attendants pilots staff all amazing"
Cons: "Out of the control of anyone the weather was terrible"

Cons: "I didn't like that I missed this flight because your first one was late"
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"
