Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."

Cons: "They forgot to board my laggauge"

Cons: "No signage for checking bags. Was total cluster. No one knew where to take bags or what line to be in. Employees kept telling us we were in the wrong line but didn’t seem to tell us what was the correctly line."

Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"

Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."

Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"

Pros: "The entertainment selection was pretty goid"
Cons: "They made a horrible mistake by getting the bag count or weight wrong and we had to go back to the gate and it cost us 2 1/2 hours."

Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."

Pros: "Timely upgrade. Great service."

Cons: "Terrible airline. Will not fly them again."

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"

Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."

Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."

Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"

Pros: "Old plane"

Cons: "Delay that caused us missing the connecting flight."

Pros: "The woman at the counter was helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."

Pros: "Great crews"
Cons: "Not sure"

Pros: "Crew was great. Plane was nice."
Cons: "No charger at seat."

Cons: "Delta Global Services is the contract company for UA and Delta in MISSOULA. After a great flight to MSO from Denver, we have been sitting in the plane while DGS tried to figure out how to get us off the plane. No management is here to make decisions. Horrible company that is managing United’s flight"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed 40 minutes due to delay in inbound aircraft. Slow turning around added a second delay."

Pros: "On time. Flight attendant was exceptional."

Pros: "Everything went like clockwork"

Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"

Cons: "The sit was so croweded"

Pros: "You cannot watch shows or.movis on demand. You can only watch TV movies, commercials and all"
Cons: "We weren't allowed in the Premier Lounge even though we had first class tickets. They said only international passengers."

Cons: "VeRy long flight that didn’t need to be as long. Small plane. Hard landing and very quick stop where where everyone screamed."

Cons: "Had to cancel my trip due to family illness. But, not acceptable to United for a refund. And wants to charge me as much as a new ticket to save my ticket. Why penalize me for a sick relative? Unbelievable! And very disappointing."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tight seats, boarding process"

Cons: "power plug didn't work"

Cons: "There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you."

Pros: "Free World Series viewing"
Cons: "No power outlets at seat"

Cons: "I couldn’t pick my seats online. Having to take that extra step at the airport was a hassle. Also we that way I wasn’t guaranteed to be sitting with my husband."

Cons: "I would like to have a response from United Airline , my email address is pamm. strickland @ gmail.com"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Delayed outbound so I got to CA much later than I needed to be."

Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "everthing else"

Pros: "Comfortable seats for economy"
Cons: "Computers were down in Akron Ohio. Flight was delayed an hour. Chicago was delayed 2 hours. There was an earlier flight i should have been booked on."

Pros: "quick boarding"
Cons: "no outlets!"

Pros: "Overall it was a good experience."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment at all. Not even music."

Pros: "I love THe. cak airport. ANd I am flying United again tomorrow"
Cons: "My carry on. Didn't fit. Had to check it after I boarded. Front desk said it was good. I bought it For THaT purpose.. The retailer advertises it as tsa approved carry oOn?"

Pros: "Courtesy of crew."
Cons: "Left late. Arrived late. Bumpy flight."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No leg room."

Pros: "Male flight attendant was so genuinely kind to an elderly couple next to me. Female was nice as well. Seat more comfortable than last flight. Flight on time."

Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Crammed unconfortable"

Pros: "Staff was wecoming and friendly"
Cons: "Couldn't even access united's flight map without paying for movies. Seats are very small, large neighbor next to me used my armrest the whole flight and generally spilled into my seat."

Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Your entertainment sucks everything cost so much. There is NO leg room. Your planes I think are old needs to be updated."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "great crew great flight and in flight service."

Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Twelve hours of horrible delays, missed connections, and running through airports due to poor aircraft maintenance and mechanical problems. Will never fly United again if I have a choice."

Cons: "The only negative was that after waiting to taxi (for almost 10 minutes), we received an announcement that it would be a little longer because they realized that the had yet to re-fuel the plane. That was somewhat alarming."

Pros: "Online confirmation"
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and we were at the end of the plane next to the bathroom. I know I didn't put those. I don't like the fact that you have to pay for baggage and there is no food provided other than a drink and some really poor substitute even for peanuts. Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."

Pros: "Wi fi movies"
Cons: "Tiny seats. I'm 6'1" and 225. All passengers need more elbow and leg room."

Pros: "Average experience. Mostly pleasant enough."
Cons: "United changed our flight with No chance to object. Then reassigned us to separate seats. We asked to be moved next to each other. We were repeatedly and rudely dismissed 3 times, at 3 different levels, as if we were in the wrong to ask. If not for the kindness of a fellow passenger we would not have flown together. Very poor hospitality training."

Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"

Pros: "Nothing, worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Dried throw up on the floor in front of my seat.disgusting. SO MANY FLIES IN THE CABIN!!! Crew seemed like they hated their jobs, were NOT attentive. wasn't cleaned at all. Plane smelled. Charge port didn't work. Tray was extremely dirty. It was the worst flight I have ever had and is making me dread flying United back home."

Pros: "The struf waffles"
Cons: "Every thing went well"

Pros: "From Akron to Cleveland it was a great trip"

Pros: "Nice cozy seat, but seatbelt was about 6" shorter than most planes-wouldnt fit a medium-large person."
Cons: "Paid a lot for an upgrade, and our bathroom was out of order, the stewardess was snippy, and my expectations were less than met."

Cons: "Everything, I got the worst seat and I had a seat in the front and was moved without my consent and unable to be moved back."

Cons: "Expensive luggage fees"

Pros: "I enjoyed both flights, from LAX and from Denver. However, I have to admit the CSR's in LAX was much more helpful then the Denver airport. Which is a bit shocking to me since I always felt the Denver airport had a bettet customer fucos team then LAX. I will continue to fly with Spirit when ever possible. Thank you!"
