My flight was on 10th May 2018 from Islamabad to Doha to Chicago but neither my online booking site ( Kayak ) not Qatar Airways sent any notification that my Boarding was changed from Banzir International Airport to the newer, bigger airport. Consequently , on the day of flight, I went to check in and board from the Bnazir International Airport but upon reaching the airport I was told that the airport was no more in operation. I was surprised to hear that all flights were to be from the newer airport.

I've booked a trip to be a part of my friends special day and instead get to the reception as guest start leaving.

But, I was very disappointed that they only know and follow the rules in their book. Dumping the luggage and wallet on the floor and then asked me to put everything back was not gonna help you find anything. They need to be bit smart and have some people skills. I mean a car salesman is smarter than this custom officer. I walked in for random screening with great respect for those officers but walked out with zero respect and maybe worse experience of my life. If you mistreat a innocent person just have a courtesy to say sorry or give them a stuffed canadian bear. We can understand!! One last thing for custom or border officers, treat the people the way you wanted to be treated."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Aisle seat was convenient"
Cons: "Stewards never smiled, acted like they didn’t care about passengers, spilled food in isle next to my seat and very slow to clean up Just not the friendly skies advertised. Will consider different airlines next time."
Cons: "My itinerary had to completely change."
Cons: "I am only 5 ft tall & petite but felt like a sardine with my knees hitting the seat in front. The overhead bins were so small that they couldn't fit carry ons efficiently so everyone was scrambling for space, delaying the boarding process & heightening frustration & stress. Boarding process was also inefficient causing delays."
Pros: "Very little to like"
Cons: "First : I bought Lufthansa tickets but was flown w United. Rude staff terrible food and unbearable seating no tv monitors per seat. I travel to Europe 4 time a year... This was without question the worse"
Pros: "Movies were ok."
Cons: "Openly rude, almost argumentative staff. I was afraid to talk back because the last thing I want is any accusation of bad behavior on an airplane. But if this were a restaurant, the customers would get up and leave without eating. I've never had this experience on China Airlines or Japan Air. I will never use UA again."
Pros: "on time arrival"
Cons: "power outlets were present but not functional. A real pity as I counted on it for my long trip to keep my portable devices. Lounge in Chicago does not have many outlets either and the next plane to Brussels either. This prevented me to keep my devices up along my trip preventing to work or watch movie as I wanted."
Cons: "Why does it take 45 minutes to board a plane? Way too long."
Cons: "the trip from san fran to Minneapolis was good but sitting on the tarmac landing in Minneapolis being told that we could not park at the gate to unload due to snow was inaccurate and frustrating"
Pros: "I liked the information provided by the pilot and the smooth ride and good landing."
Cons: "The stewardess just went through the motions. She walked down the aisle with water but never asked if you wanted any unfriendly demeanor"
Cons: "IT WAS CANCELLED"
Cons: "The plane was supposed to have WIFI but it didn't."
Cons: "Late and rude"
Pros: "great to have internet access on board"
Cons: "you really need to improve the food. this is just unacceptable"
Pros: "So please tell me how it is you publish on your reader board need to park time and then you leave before that without indicating it to anyone"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "I was short."
Cons: "Plane was late arriving and had to chance plans at final destination for pick up."
Cons: "2 hr behind schecduel"
Pros: "My overall experience was excellent except for your new food policy. Meals should included! I am handicapped and asked for help boarding and getting to flights! I was helped by your caring and very curtitious staff! Thank you for your help."
Cons: "United lost one of our baggage"
Pros: "Didn't even get to Newark. Complete travel plan change."
Cons: "I was put up in a hotel by your company and the hotel would not take cash for the deposit they require. I do not own a credit card so I had to find a relative to fax a copy of their card and their personal information to be able to get the room that you are supposed to pay for. Since when do businesses not take cash? It is not my fault I had to be here because your equipment failed. I did my part by purchasing the ticket. I am not happy that I am treated this way because I only have cash to pay for things. Maybe you need to work out a deal with the hotels you use to accommodate such a scenario as this."
Cons: "Had to pay over $200 to check bags and dog, won't be flying United anytime soon."
Pros: "Free wifi on board"
Pros: "The stewardess were nice"
Cons: "If you are over 6 foot and don't have 1st class or a exit row....you're going to have a bad time. The seats are tiny, felt like the smallest plane ever. Paid $20 for wifi and the wifi was dial up speeds. I'm wondering how they kept the cable from USA to South Korea. The food was horrible....I wouldn't feed it to the great leader Kim Jong il or Un. Vegetarian noodles or omelette...that's a cruel joke, there are only 2 lavatories on the plane"
Pros: "Comfort of seats, legroom and pleasant inflight service."
Cons: "Too many carry-ons. Should be stopped at boarding."
Cons: "Take off delay due to catering"
Pros: "Finally getting home"
Cons: "It took so long to get there"
Cons: "You had to pay for television."
Cons: "Planes are jammed"
Cons: "I have handicape son and they didnt give seat together"
Cons: "3hrs late departure"
Cons: "We booked 2 seats at one time so it seems ridiculous to have been put in different placed"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Worst service ever."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Total lack of space. Embarrassing. Cattle is treated better. Unable tot make proper seat selection in advance. Will avoid United if I can."
