Pros: "Nice plane, good service and pilots, great landing - no issues at all."
Cons: "Flight attendant in First class was visibly frustrated and unfriendly. He was not helping with my simple request for a blanket. Also, the were no food service in first class."
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."
Cons: "Flight was 1,5 hr delayed, which almost caused me to miss my connecting flight"
Cons: "Wheelchair shortage on arrival, although I had one reserved. Waited for a while then walked. Not ideal. Very long wait for bus to rental car center."
Cons: "We thought we were flying AirFrance as our emails came from them and were surprised to learn after waiting in the AirFrance baggage drop queue for 30 mins that we were in the wrong place."
Cons: "Double booking and payment of flight. Dropped flight bookings. Not a good trip"
Cons: "the inefficiency and extra steps required to travel. Quite lacking in smooth transition between flights, significantly below expectations relative to other airlines"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment and communication."
Cons: "The online reservation had me pick seats for my family, those seats were emailed to me, then when I checked in and got our boarding passes, the seats had changed! Wouldn't have been a big deal, but I had already memorized our seats, so I looked like a moron when I insisted seats that were not ours anymore were ours!"
Pros: "Food available was good."
Cons: "Very tight space- could not reach floor when person in front of me moved seat into recline position. Could not get out of seat to go to bathroom when my seat mates were sleeping. Tough to load- tight spaces."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay on the ground - very poor communication from Crew"
Pros: "The flight was crowded, but what can you expect? Turbulence prevented beverage service. The flight arrived early but had to wait to land."
Cons: "inflight entertainment wasn't working on my seat only which made my 6 hour flight seem even longer :("
Pros: "Wi-Fi was great. Watched two movies. Flight was on time and painless"
Cons: "Only complimentary snack was pretzels and only a cup of water."
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Cons: "Had to drive 100 miles to catch second leg of trip."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Cons: "the payment didn't work but I got no notification. When I got to the airport I couldn't check in. It took a lot of time with more fee to figured it out. A terrible experience"
Pros: "One was great and one was not helpful and was condescending"
Pros: "Staff was polite and friendly. It was a great experience!"
Pros: "Great, friendly crew and excellent customer service from flight attendants."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment depended on the Wi-Fi working. It did not work the whole flight."
Pros: "the entertainment program was good, and the plane in good shape"
Cons: "food was terrible"
Pros: "The plane was nice and in good shape. They had beverage service for a very quick flight which is nice. Can't rate food or entertainment because only hour or so flight."
Cons: "It was freezing in the plane and I'm never cold. When I asked for a blanket they had none!!! They had just announced whatever they can do to make your flight more comfortable ask them. Not true, just words. Disappointed after the great treatment after flying ANA."
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: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."
Cons: "Because of missed connection I had to go from Dulles to Reagan airport"
Pros: "I got home safe."
Cons: "The customer service was mediocre. The selection of complementary beverage was minimal compared to other airlines. The staff are disgruntled and sometimes rude. There was always some sort of mechanical problems with the plane going to Puerto Plata and coming back. On the way to DR we had to divert to Miami because of problems with Navigation. They made us wait seven hours and gave us a voucher for food at the last minute. People had already bought food. I would not recommend United to none of my associates."
Pros: "The flight was as comfortable as can be. I really appreciated the great cup of coffee brewed. This was the 2nd and final segment of an overnight itinerary. What else can be said?"
Pros: "Free TV since we were 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "4 delays in 1 day on 2 flights. 2 gate changes with no relay of info and to top it all off my wife and i were reassigned to separate seats at the last minute by the airline and very rudely told to deal with it and to calm down when I simply asked why. We were appalled and embarrassed in front of many others in the gate boarding area. The gate agent in Houston has no place in customer service and was on some kind of a power trip. This surprised me with recent events. We are done with United now for many reasons"
Pros: "Yes crew was amazing and bathrooms remained clean for entire flight"
Pros: "All was well, staff was cordial and food decent. I got my special meal with no problem. We left on time and arrived half hour early. Flying with elal, we need to be patient with all the extra security, but that feels safer to me so I don’t mind."
Cons: "the entertainment screen didn’t work. I downloaded the “dream stream” to my phone in advance and watched content that way. It worked fine, but it’s not the same content that is available on the actual screen."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and pleasant. Boarding was quick. Airplane was clean. Blankets were warm. Food was good."
Cons: "Aircraft old so entertainment was not on the individual seat. Seats were hard and didn’t recline too much. Leg room was decent. Check in was horrible. 45 minute line."
Pros: "The blanket provided"
Cons: "More water service since we were not allowed to bring water on the airplane"
Pros: "Flight was amazing but my connection in Barcelona to Tel Aviv was a bit stressful. I couldn't check in via app or phone, When I arrived at security in Barcelona, security would not allow me to pass without a boarding pass. So I had to leave the gate area and go to El Al ticket counter."
Cons: "I almost missed my flight because of this. I called Expedia staff and they weren't much help. Next time I will be better prepared when booking flights to Tel Aviv."
Cons: "I may have left my heart in San Francisco, but they left my baggage in Boston!"
Pros: "When the plane is not crowded there are no lines to the bathroom, the crew is more relaxed. It is overall more human."
Pros: "Fairly empty flight. Decent movie selections. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "I shouldn’t have upgraded to Economy+ b/c the front row (in Economy) has no where to store your things except overhead, the extra legroom is negated by everyone using your row to cross between aisles and the screen that folds out from the armrest wouldn’t stay upright & required constant adjustment. No WiFi is disappointing for a 12+ hr flight."
Pros: "Crew was unusually helpful and nice. There were 2 plain clothes air marshalls on the flight. Made me feel much more secure than any other airline."
Cons: "My new Samsung Note 8 wouldn't charge on the old El Al planes. Either with 110 or 220 adapters."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No individual entertainment unless youve already downloaded the program to your computer. Non-supportive headrest made it hard to sleep"
The team of flight attendants assigned to Economy class were very attentive. They assisted my disabled husband with the use of an aisle chair so that he could go to the bathroom. They were respectful and patient with him when it took awhile for him to finish. After the flight we went to the ER and he had a bladder infection.
Staff are attentive, pleasant and responsive. Food was wonderful. Wish that we didn’t have to board buses to get to the plane in Rome but went smoothly. Flight was very smooth but ITA can’t control weather. Left late but got there almost on time. Great flight.
A lot of things could have been better. They lost our luggage. We missed our connection from YVR to Naples when we arrived in Zurich and then we got re-routed to Rome and then Naples. We eventually got to Naples but our bags didn’t. Our experience at the lost luggage in the Naples was not at all reassuring. They didn’t seem that interested in our problem. I did a live chat with Swiss customer service and all they could do is tell me to follow the process. Meanwhile we’ve had to spend significant money on clothes and I have to replace medications. This has meant our trip so far has been totally different than what we had planned. It’s not clear that our baggage will ever show up which means we will have lost significant amount of clothing and other things and our two month trip to Europe will have more problems than good memories. So far we are not happy.
Not a very modern plane with no entertainment and a sandwich and juice served on board.
the customs line was total chaos. staff were exceptionally rude. was almost late for flight because I was directed to two different lines. once I finally got on the plane it was great. Great choice of movies and games. Staff was nice. the food could be better but I'm happy I was fed. exiting was easy.
Terrible. Flight was cancelled with less than 10 hours notice. They added an extra flight to the itinerary and separated our weats which I specifically had already paid to have together.
Flight was missed due to delayed departure from Rome Luggage lost on Rome.
Missed connecting flight because flight out of Rome was delayed. Had to rent car to final destination. Luggage was lost from Rome. Delta is blaming Ita Airlines and Ita Airlines is blaming. And as of right know neither airline wants to be responsible for our luggage or refund or missed flight. Will not book trips through third party companies such as Kayak again.
Terrible service, uninterested employees, inefficient boarding process, and marginal set up on plane. Staff make the airline - good luck with this one.
Never went to Rome's airport and it was beautiful!!
