Flight delayed. Crew excellent. Airlines are struggling amid shortages of staff. Be prepared to have flights canceled or delayed.
Flights kept changing right up to the day before leaving—-finally requiring two connecting flights instead of one with all of us traveling alone to connect through a different city. The connecting flight changes were scheduled too close to the arriving flight time—-requiring another phone call and extremely long wait times to United. In all, we had to call United 6 times with flight changes THEY made. United and their partner companies (in our case Lufthansa) continually blamed the other provider for the scheduling problems. All flights we took on this trip were delayed. The flight staff was always good. The arrangements for the trip a nightmare.
Positiv: "Very good and safe"
Negativ: "Everything was great"
Negativ: "Quick flight on time and no issues."
Negativ: "Our bag was tagged as Priority, and was literally the last one off the plane. We clearly have different definitions of that word."
Negativ: "Flight delayed by over 4 hours. Took another flight"
Positiv: "Sehr positiv dass man der Person neben mir einen freien Platz anbot und wir dadurch mehr Platz hatten. Sitzplatz hatte ausreichend Platz und das Unterhaltungsprogramm war sehr gut."
Negativ: "Frühstück hätte besser sein können"
Negativ: "Bigger seats and warmer cabin"
Positiv: "I had the row of seats to myself and lots of leg room."
Negativ: "Our flight was delayed. We watched while the next flight was loading on time. We had to wait 2 hours!"
Negativ: "Seats very uncomfortable Planes tatty Toilets very dirty"
Negativ: "bei einem 45 min Flug kann man nicht viel anders machen"
Positiv: "eingentlich war gar nichts wirklich gut. sondern max mässig"
Negativ: "Es gibt 2x auf einem über 11 Stunden non-stop Flug was zum essen:Nach dem Start und einmal 1,5 Stunden vor der Landung. 9 Std. nichts. Wenn dann eine Stewardess helfen will mit einem kleinen Snack aber von einem Kollegin gebremst wird, dann finde ich das unverschämt!! "Wir machen keine Ausnahmen!""
Positiv: "Great crew"
Negativ: "More legroom"
Positiv: "The pilot and stewardess were very pleasant to chat with the stewardess was sweet, pleasant to chat with. All around enjoyable She likes her job as does the captain."
Negativ: "I fell getting out of my small seat breaking my glasses and hitting my head on the top of seat’nnn"
Positiv: "Personal freundlich und in dem Fall war der Punkt 20 Minuten überpünktlich"
Negativ: "Wie üblich auf diesen kurzen Flügen keine Bordunterhaltung. Relativ wenig Sitzabstand wie sonst aber auch üblich (bei knappe 1,90m) wenn kein spezieller Sitz mehr frei ist."
Positiv: "Pleasant crew, flight on time. Ambiance = none, comfort = bare minimum, better than sewerage on the Mayflower and that's the norm."
Negativ: "I missed having the navigation map when traveling such a long distance."
Positiv: "Leider verspätet"
Negativ: "What I wrote above was meant to describe our experience from Chicago to Burlington- not Milwaukee to Chicago. Although, we had a delay in Milwaukee too. Overall, everything was only fair"
Negativ: "Entertainment während des Fluges nur gegen Aufpreis mittels Kreditkartenzahlung möglich"
Positiv: "Good flight attendants"
Negativ: "There were no charging outlets, the tv screens were very old and poor quality. I downloaded the app before my first flight and the in flight entertainment would not work. I even checked if there was an updated version before boarding and there wasn’t. I kept getting an error that I would need to try again in a few minutes. Horrible plane experience in terms of the amount paid compared to even lower budget flights that have great in flight entertainment options."
Negativ: "- knapp unter 6 Std Flugzeit und nur ein Mini-sackerl bretzen zum Essen - für jedes Gepäckstück wird kassiert"
Positiv: "Flug hat Minimumkriterien erfuellt. Puenklichkeit und Sicherheit. Getraenke wurden offeriert."
Negativ: "Ich bin klein und fand es beengend. Das überraschendste war aber das komplett fehlende Unterhaltungsprogramm. Nicht mal ein gemeinschaftlicher Monitor. Dies bei einem 4h Flug. Info über vorhandene Service( entertainment und food ) im Flug wäre wünschenswert."
Negativ: "When boarding, the agent said we had to check our rollaboards because they were our of overhead bin space. Hen we entered the plane, we saw that the entire back half of the plane had empty bins, but by that time it was too last to retrieve our bags."
Negativ: "Never got to dc"
Positiv: "All the effort to make my need for wheelchair problem free"
Positiv: "Business Class entsprach voll den Erwartungen, nur das erste Mal war der Flug rückwärts"
Positiv: "Prinzipiell ok aber nicht First Class Standard, wie gebucht"
Positiv: "Nice, friendly flight attendant, smooth flight once we got in the air"
Negativ: "Delays. Some people missed connections. I was fortunate my second plane was delayed, else I would have missed mine too"
Positiv: "I had a good amount of time between each flight, every plane was waiting at the gate when I arrived, every flight arrived early."
Positiv: "Once the plane boarded it was a smooth flight."
Negativ: "The airline said that it needed to take on additional fuel due to bad weather, which would make the plane overweight. This meant that nearly half of the passengers who bought tickets would not be able to fly. Thos made boarding stressful as they were randomly calling names. They were offering $2000 and a hotel and meals and a flight out the next morning. However I did not have flexible travel plans and the stress of hoping to be allowed to board was unpleasant."
Negativ: "We kept getting delayed by 20minutes (for 4 hours) without any communications/updates from the staff as to what the problem was or when a solution might be found."
Negativ: "I reboarded the same plane for this leg of the trip. The same issue with the air being unbearably cold."
Positiv: "Flights on time"
Negativ: "Luggage arrived 2 hours late on separate flight"
Positiv: "Siehe Bewertung in den Kategorien. Essen ok, Boarding entspannt und ein guter Flug für den Preis (sehr günstig)"
Negativ: "Nicht sehr viel Platz, zu wenige Getränke über den Flugzeitraum, Personal nur mäßig freundlich, kein Boardentertainment am Platz nur über zentrale Lautsprecher aller 4-5 Reihen (Flug durchgeführt von United)"
Positiv: "Guter Komfort und gute Beinfreiheit zu den Vordersitzen so dass man auch nach einem Langstreckenflug von München nach San Francisco entspannt ankommt."
Negativ: "... und alles kostet extra: Bordunterhaltung, Essen, Bier."
Positiv: "Wir waren sehr knapp dran. Wir erreichten den Flieger nur, weil uns Airline Angestellte geholfen haben und wir durch den Flughafen gespurtet sind."
Positiv: "Every member of the crew was really helpful, especially since I had a cello with me. They helped me with tips on how the airport and their boarding system worked, and I'm sure they are just as good with families and people carrying heavier luggage."
Positiv: "Personal war sehr nett, das Boarding ging zügig vonstatten, Sitze gemütlich(für Kurzstreckenflug)"
Negativ: "Flug hatte 1 h Verspätung, keine Auswahl beim angebotenen Snack"
Positiv: "Boarding sehr zügig, Carry-on wurde unkompliziert in Frachtraum verbracht da sehr kleines Flugzeug"
Negativ: "Sitze eher sparsam bemessen, keine Auswahl bei Snack"
Positiv: "Everything went well and we didn't crash. 10/10"
Positiv: "Gate staff were courteous."
Negativ: "I had about an hour layover in which I had time to use the restroom and buy lunch. I did these things, then went to wait at the assigned gate. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to me, they changed the departing gate for my connecting flight. The concourse area is so crowded and noisy, and announcements are only heard in the immediate gate are, that, though I was sitting only one gate over, I did not hear the boarding calls and missed my flight. I sat in Newark airport for six hours (which included a maintenance problem, gate change and 1 more hour delay) until the departure of the next flight to Burlington."
Negativ: "Again, United changed my original departure time from Burlington, VT to San Diego (via Chicago) from 10 am to 6:30 am. This meant an overnight stay in Burlington and loss of sleep and my free breakfast. In addition, I was stuck with 4+ hr layover in Chicago. The Chicago terminal was a mass of swarming people. Horrible!"
