My next flight was at 18:55 and I asked Virgin Atlantic agent am I allowed to stay in the room until time for my flight comes, he confirmed yes and gave me breakfast, lunch, and dinner voucher. However, next day around 12 I got call from Front Desk that I have to leave my room right away because it's time to chack out and If I want to stay longer I have to pay. I called Virgin Atlantic agancy again and the agent run my information and said to me I can stayin the room longer. After that I called front desk to confirm that but they said they didn't hear anything from Virgin Atlantic and I have to leave the room by 1pm. All of this was really unpleasant!"

Cons: "For a more than $800 ticket on a domestic flight: The flight could have been on time The food is not free and limited Entertainment system: the choice of programs and movies is a little bit too limited."
Pros: "the young man who was our flight attendant was just terrible. He could care less about his job. Name I think was Nathan."
Pros: "Older plane."
Cons: "Our section, Main 1 (towards tail end of plane) had strong smell of unine which thankfully dissipated once plane was in flight. Also, bathrooms even on boarding were not clean with urine all over the toilet."

The entire airline industry seems to be a total disaster these days, and this flight was no different. They never posted the gate until boarding time, then bused us to the plane, a 777! We then sat on the plane for over two hours, with almost no information as to why. When they did give us information, it was an obvious lie, like saying we would be underway in 10 minutes, while being number 5 in line for deicing. I worked in the airline industry for 20 years, it takes longer than that for each plane, and a pilot would certainly know that. All in all, a 6 1/2 hour flight was 9 1/2 hours on the plane, just ridiculous! The entire time we were given little to no information as to why things weren't happening as they should. And to top it off, the pilot had the nerve to joke upon arrival into Boston that he was glad we had joined them for the short flight from London. Just what you want after 9 1/2 hours on a rock-hard seat, someone minimizing the agony you've been feeling for hours! Oh yeah, and the added time was just enough to allow the snow to start flying in Boston, which lead to multiple accidents, which made our 1 1/2-hour drive home, 3 hours, icing on the cake!
British Airways refused to allow my daughter and I to sit together because our tickets weren’t purchased at the same time. We were the first in line at the British Airways counter and the gentleman did not greet us but instead we greeted him. F. Kries should not be representing British Airways.
Cons: "The Terminal in Chicago had no open amenities and overcrowded."
Pros: "El tiempo de llegada, aterrizamos 40 min antes de lo esperado"
Cons: "Deben poner a los pasajeros que son impertinentes juntos"
Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Cons: "More room I pay for main cabin It feels it was just the regular"

Cons: "They left me! I know I was a “runner” but they knew I was just already going through security and it’s only a 3 terminal airport! They even asked if there were any runners!"
Taking a bus or train from Newark to Albany is perhaps the better (safer and faster) option for such a short distance, especially with winter weather. Due to complications caused by snowfall, our flight had to circle around Albany airport for about half an hour before the conditions on the runway were sufficient for landing. (The pilots did an excellent job getting us on the ground safely with limited runway-length, snow covering the runway, and poor visibility.) The flight had a lot of turbulence due to the snowstorm and small size of the plane, but all was well in the end.
Rude and condescending crew, below average food, passengers treated as toddlers.
Pros: "Crew was making an effort...."
Cons: "A newer plane. First class was old and uncomfortable. Bins were small and didn't fit much."
Pros: "Lots of movie choices"
Cons: "Filthy plane, one rear lavatory out of order, the other lavatory was dirty from the start of the trip, one of our displays was inoperable and when the crew promised to look into resetting they never got back to us. Just a disappointment compared to other airlines we have flown."
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: "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: "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: "Nothing I never took this flight"
Cons: "Hopefully no one scammed my name or banking info I was not on this flight"
Pros: "Enough legroom in economy. Crew friendly and helpful. Kosher food good."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "My video monitor was loose and I had to hold it up the whole time I was watching it. I told the flight attendant but they said they didn’t have a screw driver. The food wasn’t good."
Pros: "The crew was nice and it wasn't a full flight so we had room."
Cons: "The food wasn't very good and the headphones were a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "For international flights every passenger should be allowed to bring one suitcase for free, I am traveling with my children for family of 6 they charge $70 dollars per person and the grand total charges for suitcases came to $350 dollars. Too much and unfair"
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 crew was ok"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 3 hours while we were already sitting in the airplane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, crew was not helpful in my cabin, entertainment system was outdated and totally broken at my seat."
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."
Pros: "Everything went went really well. The only problems was a delay of several hours which they posted so I knew in advance."
Pros: "Clean airport and airline. I was on the new Dreamliner. Book business you don’t want to be in the back."
Cons: "For obvious reasons security is tight. However, they do not warn you sufficiently about the screening and security process. It took 2 hours alone to get through security and it was a light crowd. I can only imagine if it was packed or during major EU or Israeli holiday. They try to move people fast but security folks are all very young so they require a lot of supervision and need oversight so they stop and go for questions with trained team members."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "No individual entertainment unless youve already downloaded the program to your computer. Non-supportive headrest made it hard to sleep"
Pros: "I did like the breakfast provided, eggs were good. Dinner was fine too, I liked that hummus was provided.. seats were comfortable. There were sufficient bathrooms."
Cons: "Even though the seats were comfortable, the legroom was not."
