Cons: "Better inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Checking-in was super simple, and speedy. All the staff I had contact with were very polite and professional"
Cons: "I had exhausted the entertainment system before I finished my first leg of the outbound journey."
Pros: "Nice and clean flight good crew"
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Pros: "I had a fast and easy check-in at Denpasar airport. In flight service by cabin crew was very good, as I normally get in the business class at Emirates. Flight left Denpasar on time and arrived in Auckland some 30 mins early, which was nice. Enjoyed a late dinner - the mie goreng ayam was particularly tasty!"
Cons: "In the past on overnight flights Emirates I have received a pyjama set in the Business Class, which made it very comfortable to sleep. But this time this was not given, so I had to sleep in my day-wear, which was a bit uncomformtable."
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "The crews"
Cons: "The wifi is bad the food is bad im in business class"
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Pros: "Footrest would be good for a long haul flight."
Pros: "Airbus was comfortable. Entertainment was really great."
Cons: "I wish there was more legroom."
Cons: "Noise of serving some people dinner in middle of night interfered with sleep. Deep dip South meant no internet for much of the flight lots of noise and inconvenience trying to fix Tvnz for (rude) lady in front"
Cons: "Peanuts should be replaced with snack crackers as so many people can not eat or come in to contact with peanuts, it’s a health hazard and not healthy. Entertainment on board should have background music"
Pros: "Travelled Business Class - a great experience."

Pros: "I flew from Orlando DL to Dubai ,and from Dubai to cape town and both flight I was selected to seat on the middle seat,f that happens on my return flights to Orlando fl ,I will never fly emirates again"

Cons: "Firstly the check in for boarding pass took forever since there was only one counter that charged for extra luggage. I had to line up 3 times to get a boarding pass and almost missed my flight even though I came 2 hrs earlier. Secondly emirates does not give you Hotel even if your layover is for 14 hrs. Since my airline for final destination is another airline they said I don't qualify for it. It's a nightmare. I have travelled all other airline but by far emirates is the worst airline I travel. Terrible experience and I will never fly Emirates."

Pros: "Started my Movie on the Ground before takeoff"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there was absolutely no announcement with everyone lined up at the scheduled departure time. Communication on the delay was non existent. There was one announcement made 10minutes after boarding was suppose to commence to say the boarding will be delayed. No details as to why, approximate time."

Cons: "I was fairly squished on this flight at 6'2" with my knees almost touching the seat in front of me. I had more space on another Cathay flight and I think I had a seat in the same class.

Cons: "Passenger immediately behind said that they couldn't watch their movie properly when I wanted to recline my seat for sleeping position. Had to wait!!"
Pros: "Upgraded seats"
Cons: "Same Some staff still needs training, sinplying saying no, is not acceptable, finding a solution and working towards a resuloution is more acceptable. Better verbiage used, checking on food count making sure EVERYONE gets what’s printed on the menu. Asking everyone equally on the same roll is the rule of thumb."
Cons: "The stopover in Hong Kong was longer than I would have liked."
Cons: "Original itinerary was not followed. Flight from manila to hongkong was late. We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."

Pros: "Entertainment was good. There was a lot of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Not enough padding on the seats for long distance travel. Not enough leg room. Not enough baggage bin over top of your seat people from other seats put their luggage on your overhead bins."
Pros: "Cathay Pacific offers terrific service and decent food. The entertainment selection was good. Sitting in economy is tough for 14.5 hours unless you’re in a pod."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped, not a lot of legroom. The overhead bin for the middle row in aisle 64 is smaller than other bins."
Pros: "Food and attentive staff"
Pros: "- Crew friendly and helpful"
Cons: "- very uncomfortable flight - seated with someone who whined and complained the whole way - could not sleep as the person behind me snored loudly the whole night - Was sitting in the isle seat and kept getting hit in the arm every time the trolley went by"
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "I had requested special vegetarian meal. Although I did receive this meal, it was barely a meal, the full course was not provided. Only the main course and salad was provided. The bread(bun) and dessert were missing. It's not clear to me why vegetarians would be deprived of a full course meal."
Cons: "It was operated by an alliance air company but I bought thru American Airlines, I even didn't know that was a coshare because I started the first leg with American, once it got cancelled they said that they couldn't do anything, and the other company said that the ticked was issued by American, nightmare. BTW I'm a Platinium member of American Airlines, what thy should at least give a little attention since I fly every month."
Cons: "The crew manager shouted to me and my 1 year old boy during the flight as my son cried. They did not offer any help, my family got insulted and cried. The worst flying experience in my life, will never take that again."

Pros: "Confort and service"
Cons: "1-hour delay due to inclement weather"

Then that 2nd rescheduled connecting flight moved 10 hours later was AGAIN delayed!!! Wasted 1 day that would have been spent nicely in London. What a way to ruin our London vacation by Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."

Cons: "Flight was late by 4hrs No food was supplied they said food is over"
Pros: "They are nice, let space, shopping options unpaired. Cathay attendants, are they trained to be as nice or are they born like that in Hong Kong?"
Cons: "All was good"
Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."
Cons: "The food was average. Had some chicken on pasta on the way over, chicken was dry and without sauce. My wife fainted on the flight and the flight attendant wasn't the most reassuring. Also her foot rest broke and they blamed her weight which was mean."
Pros: "We were really taken care of and had a great experience. From the cleanliness of the plane, to the kind staff and generous in flight services/accommodations, we were very pleased. We look forward to flying Cathay Pacific again!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Cabin facilities"
Cons: "They didn’t bring one of my bags"
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: "The crew were really helpful with people who had tight connections because of the delayed flight"
Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"

Cons: "Landlords gave an unpleasant service! Which continued with late of 50min of the flight, they didn’t do anything to help/ to provide the passengers the answers. The food was cold It was comfort place to sit. Bad experience with KLM"

Pros: "Airlines issue"
Cons: "Profiling certain customers"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."

Cons: "need better and more food options, more often"

Cons: "Sears we're toooo small"

Cons: "The bags where damaged from the staff"
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday. A lovely touch. This airline runs like clockwork. They are just great. The sandwich and stoop waffle are nice too."
Cons: "There is a bus to the plane, so that takes a bit of extra time but they are very well organized."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliability."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."

Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
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..."
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."

Cons: "full flight, no upgrade possible"
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Pros: "I ended up getting home with less delay than originally predicted. I guess that's a good thing Also delta customer service was super polite and trying to help when I called"
Cons: "Delay again... seems to be pretty frequent on KLM flights at least on the ones I flew with in the past 4 years... this time it was 3hours wait due to a technical issue... no alternative flight option and we ended up getting a very old plane as a replacement. In addition people at info terminals are disorganized and not kind at all.."
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and because of this I missed my connection flight to Amsterdam"
Pros: "Fine as delta flights go"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew professional, food and drinks good and kept coming. I learnt Dutch on the in-flight entertainment system. I was in a good mood talking to another passenger about his new luggage system. This mood was kept and not taken away on the flight."
Cons: "Would be nice if there was wifi on board"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Claiming that the plane was completely full (which it wasn't), They forced just about everyone to check there carry ons. When we got on board, there was plenty of overhead space. Supposedly, we should've have been allowed a carryon and a personal item."
Pros: "Food was relatively good"
Cons: "We had ourtrip from San Francisco to Amsterdam which is one of the longest flights ever, andthe entertainment system wasnt working, we kept on telling them several times but nothing happened and at the end they wereeven avoiding us. By the end of the trip when we were approaching Ams, a hostess came and she gave us a $25 dollar discountvoucher to be used in our next trip, this is totally not acceptable!"

Cons: "Seat could use a bit more cushion, a bit thin for a long haul service. Also, had to take a bus to the aircraft which slowed the boarding."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived ahead of time. Baggage arrived very promptly. Seats comfortable."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on inflight entertainment. Seatbelt short, unable to keep secured except sitting straight in seat. No food which is now typical most domestic flights 4 hours or less."
Pros: "The long flight"
Cons: "The long flits"
"Canceled my trip never flew. They were rude and uninformed. Caused me grief wanting another covid test even though I had one plus I am vaccinated. No excuse. They should have had a test station by their ticketing counter. Had to hunt for transportation which was very difficult since it was 10 pm. Rented car for 350 to get home. I would think twice before booking through Kayak and with BA. kayak should have had more assistance and not just sell the ticket. Both receive an F ."
Cons: "The pancake was not cooked enough couldn’t eat it"
Cons: "Boarding process.."

Cons: "we buy the tickets from kayak and reconfirmed with British Airways is that we allowed to have one suitcase of 23 kilo checked in for each person . would get to their products and we paid 180 US dollars for the read suitcases we have . I didn’t mention kayak to give me the 180 us dollar back"

Pros: "Service, clean restroom, courtesy of crew members"
Pros: "Nothing really was good or stood out in a positive way."
Cons: "Horrible lie flat seats with absolutely no stowage room. Seats are super cramped with 8 in a row you feel like being transported in a cattle car. Crew was most decidedly unfriendly. We were boarded on time despite the fact BA knew the flight was delayed and sat at the gate for an hour. Food was equivalent to hospital food. U must be crazy to fly business in BA. Never again."

Pros: "Comfortable seats ,nice crew"
Pros: "The new flight procedures informational film at the beginning of the flight (BA/Comic Relief)"

Cons: "I booked a regular flight and at the end the system or dont know how, booked me PLUS ECONOMY, when I wanted to change my ticket date, it was so expensive and almost no dates were available. Also, you didnt give me chance to downgrade in order to change the dates more easily. I always fly through BA and I love the easy it is to change dates, but this time you disappointed me. I usualy choose BA because its easy and non expensive to change dates in my flight but now I may be open to book with other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth from boarding to landing early at Heathrow."
Cons: "It was a fully booked flight, which means the person next to you tends to overflow into your seat"
Cons: "I paid 100$ because I had to cancel my request. It was a technical error of your reservation system which unexpectedly changed my return from the 5th of November to the 6th of November. The fine was unfair and you're required to refund me."
Pros: "The staff were some of the friendliest I have encountered in recent traveling experiences. They were very attentive to every passenger."
Cons: "We only paid for economy seats, and unfortunately, it's hard to expect much more than what we got. The friendly service made up for the lack of comfort these seats provide."
Pros: "Upgraded to world traveler plus was way more comfortable. The flight crew were so so nice and helpful. I am handicapped and they just couldn't do enough to make me comfortable."
Cons: "They the seats I reserved months ago were changed."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Pros: "I loved the on-demand entertainment which starts as soon as you board the plane and continues all the way into landing / taxing to the gate."
Cons: "The system would not allow me to check-in / get my boarding passes 24 hrs prior to barding, which basically left me with a middle seat all the way to Seattle. I considered this a terrible process and didn't get a good explanation why I was blocked from doing my check-in online."
Cons: "No food selection. No vegan meal that i ordered for my daughter."
Pros: "Most everything"
Cons: "Seat choice"
Cons: "BA cancelled the flight, did not reroute us, provided a phone number for tel aviv (closed for the weekend). Terrible customer service. And our ticket was bought thru vayama who also did not bother to help us. Bad bad customer service for BA."
Cons: "boarding with bus instead of sleeve"
Pros: "Security staff was rude in England and our suitcases was lost And they did not even let us know"
Pros: "The crew was very efficient"
Cons: "The was really bad."
Cons: "I received no information from British Airways! Luckily someone saw that all flights on BA had been canceled. This is the second time this has happened with British Airways. They have zero customer service and terrible communication."
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailingly helpful and polite. We paid extra for exit row seats, which were wonderful for my 6'6" husband's long legs."
Cons: "The food wasn't really edible, but the flight was only 5 hours long, so it wasn't a great issue."
Cons: "For some reason British Airways has a bug in its computers and does not allow me to check in on line. This is not the first time."
Cons: "Nor too many good movies to choose from. I get it , row number 47, don't expect any 1st class comfort, but still, i was glad to land in Denver. Started to run out of sitting positions that didn't hurt."
Pros: "Crew was making an effort...."
Cons: "A newer plane. First class was old and uncomfortable. Bins were small and didn't fit much."
Cons: "Less full"
Pros: "Got a row to Myself"
Cons: "No Masks really enforced"
Pros: "GREAT SEATS AND SERVICE"
Cons: "other than free flights, nothing"
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Pros: "What mede this trip so poor was that the agent at the desk informed me that as I was boarding the plane my carry on suitcase had to be checked due to limited space in the overhead bins. This is the same carry on that I have stored in overheads on literally over 100 flights including a United flight 4 days earlier. I was the approximately the fith passenger to board in group 3 and after I let her check my bag I walked on to the plane to see not only was it only one quarter full of passengers, most of the overhead bins were completely empty. So I had to go to baggage claim to get my checked bag after we landed which took almost 40 minutes. Very frustrating!"
Cons: "See above!"
Pros: "Premium economy was great"
Cons: "Toilets were broken"
Pros: "Food was excellent, seating was comfortable and entertainment choices were good."
Cons: "Boarding could have been more organized. It seemed to have been a little chaotic."
Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."
Cons: "Meals, better service, didn't provide me with a wheel chair as I'm pregnant and had my nine months old daughter with me. Very bad experience."
Cons: "A horrific, frustrating and humiliating experience at the Tel Aviv airport. United airlines did not inform me about the security process for transit passengers. I was subjected to humiliating search and with my bag still at the Tel Aviv, because they didn't have enough times Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "No delays or cancellations occured!"
Cons: "Plane space for feet is terrible. I'm a small person and it is crammed, very uncomfortable seats. Also, electrical outlets didn't work most of the time"
Pros: "Enough legroom in economy. Crew friendly and helpful. Kosher food good."
Pros: "Brand new plane"
Cons: "Didn't get much refreshment"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."

Pros: "Alot of empty seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Very basic not so comfortable seats"
Cons: "Dirty airplain, 12h flight, the food a disaster, crew that don’t know to smile, restrooms dirty the igienic paper and a lot more...."
Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful. The entertainment system is good and fairly modern. The entertainment over WiFi is a great option."
Cons: "There's no Premium Economy cabin. The Economy Plus seats are as narrow as regular economy seats. The food is fairly basic, and many other airlines serve better."
Pros: "the entertainment program was good, and the plane in good shape"
Cons: "food was terrible"
Pros: "Even though we took off late, the flight landed early. We were served two meals and a snack. Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "It's a 12 hour flight. It's exhausting"
Pros: "Very little. The crew were grumpy and barely gave any service beyond what they had to do. They grunted "Chicken or fish" and "What beverage do you want" and basically threw the food and drinks at the passengers.."
Cons: "Almost everything..."
Pros: "I purchased a seat with extra legroom and It was comfortable, the staff was accommodating, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food was not good, salad was old, and overall not good."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "The comform of the seats was very poor. Entertainment only worked half way. Stewards did not ask if I wanted to eat or not. Only pessengers on the alley seats were asked. Very little attention was given to make passengers comfortable."
Pros: "We enjoyed the ability to have beer and wine included. We thought the meals going to Tel Aviv and on the return were very tasty, good portions, and served at the appropriate times. We loved the choices of movies/tv that were updated and new and also included."
Cons: "The only issue we had was getting up to go to the bathroom midflight. There was some slight turbulence and the attendants demanded we sit down for safety (it wasn't too bad though) yet once we got back to our seats the turblence was fine, and we got up to go again and the same thing happened. There were long lines for the bathrooms. I'm not sure if that can be avoided though."
Pros: "the flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "Did not appreciate the flight attendants at all. VERY rude staff. Not considerate by making everyone wait a LONG time to serve food, which was not served in a friendly manner at all. It was quite obvious they did NOT care about our comfort or experience. Would NOT recommend unless I'm desperate and feel like being around people who hate their job and want me to know it."
Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "i wish i have something to say"
Pros: "I liked the movies,they have many movies and I can choice"

Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "the staff was extremely pleasant, and so nice. the flight was ok"
Cons: "The gluten free menu wasn't very good, and also there were no gluten free snacks. 1% of the population has celiac, I expected more these days..."
Cons: "Not enough good movies"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and had to pay to stay in a hotel room for the night."
Cons: "Some moron decided that passengers shouldn't be allowed to bring drinks on the plane. This means that after passing security and customs, after buying an overpriced cup of latte, you are told to spill it or else. And that's in a country that lives on security. Unacceptable. Unjustified and unheard of."
Cons: "The food was terrible"
Pros: "More space than El-al. No delays"
Cons: "Food. We ordered 4 special meals and got only one!"
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Pros: "When I landed in Denver, I needed a wheelchair. The gate where I landed was a LONG way from the gate where I needed to board for my flight to Billings. The person wheeling me didn't think we'd make it to my gate on time----she practically had to run!! As we passed an agent, she asked if they'd call ahead to let them know I was coming. The agent told her they wouldn't hold the plane for me if we didn't make it. I don't know if they did, but I was the last person to board. Thank God!!!!"
Cons: "The person wheeling me to my gate to Billings couldn't find anyone on a cart who get me to my gate faster & on time. I feel that more of them should be available to those of us who need to go such a long distance to our next gate. We barely made it in my wheelchair and had I had to walk that distance, I NEVER would have made my flight to Billings. Also, agents should be able to contact a gate to let them know that a person is having difficulty getting to their next gate!!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lots of selection for movies."
Cons: "Drink service was so slow. Literally had to beg for drinks"
Pros: "The plane."
Cons: "Travelling with a nine week old: no add on seatbelt (as per QANTAS) for lap sleeping, paid for an extra seat we didn't realize we were buying. The food has not improved in the last decade in contrast to other airlines."
Pros: "lay flat bed in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Cons: "The délayer that was due to The weather"
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "NO leg room."
