Made the 6 hour flight go by quickly and not mind the bumpy air in the tropics."

Pros: "We left on time and the crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable. They would not recline at all. I was not looking to lay down but sitting straight up for 2 hours made it very uncomfortable.

Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."
Pros: "Amenities were about on par with other international airlines. The entertainment console was wonderful. The trip was more quickly than expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. We were there 2.5 hours before our flight and had to rush to make it on time due to the awful lines for the checking our bags and general disorganization of American Airlines. The staff on the plane missed our row when offering drinks near the end of the flight and were not careful about bumping elbows and shoulders as they frequented the aisle. Also couldn't sit by my family which was a huge bummer."
Pros: "A nice uneventful trip"
Cons: "Well because of some dumb delay we missed our connection allowing us to be given new tickets for two more connecting flights. Which is absurd."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was on American Airlines 220, not a BA carrier. No power outlets. No Wi-Fi. No individual entertainment. Cramped seating in spite of paying a premium for improved seating. Lousy food. Flying to Hong Kong on AA was much better. Never again on AA to Europe."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 times for 6 and a half hours in total. Poor communication from the airline.

This delay caused me to miss an important factory meeting and will require another trip to Asia sooner than originally planned."

Pros: "Crew was really nice. Kept me hydrated. I liked the movies available to watch."
Cons: "This is something that the airline doesn't have control over: crying kids. It just comes with flying."

Pros: "The crew was excellent, timing was superb,"

Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding seemed extremely unorganized. Crew skipped group 2 when calling groups to board, resulting in a mad rush."

Pros: "The entire process from check in to boarding to the actual flight was wonderful"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Having to pay extra $$ for seating and not enough together"

Pros: "It was nice and cool."

Pros: "Delayed for hours for seemingly no reason"
Pros: "Entertainment was plentiful. Impressive library of movies."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Great entertainment and arrived early"
Cons: "Chicago airport has the rudest group of people that work in the airport but I've ever seen in all of my life! My flight landed late due to Airline delays no one would help me get across the entire airport the far terminal that I had to go to it was absolutely ridiculous because of this I'm still in Chicago I'm not even reached my destination"
Pros: "Delayed for two hours asked three tunes if I would make my other flight and no attempt to help me just was given a I don’t know response!"
Cons: "That the staff wasn’t willing to help make an informed decision!"
Pros: "It was a satisfying experience with United Airline from ABE shuttle bus ride (I said Shuttle) to EWR. It sure saved me the 2 hours driving during rush hour, and wears and tearS on my personal car, if you have 2 hours extra time during the day. Otherwise (If you want to save time), drive yourself to EWR and park."
Cons: "It does take up 2 more hours"
Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."
Pros: "Loved the staff. Was a great afternoon flight. Best flight I have been on thus far."
Pros: "Crew was very kind and apologetic for delay."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours and forced to deboard when I can drive in 3 hours."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."
Pros: "Nothing. Terrible service"
Cons: "The toilet over flowing and delaying my flight to the point of missing my connection."
Pros: "Good service, being on time or early! Food was good. Keeping it dark for several hours to allow for sleep is good! I would do this flight again hoping for similar experience."
Cons: "AC was broken. They could at least give you a second cup of water. Tired of being treated like an animal"
Pros: "Service and flighr smooth"
Cons: "No one told us at the gate I was told to go to included on my ticket that it had been changed. I almost missed my flight if I had not asked an assistant at another gate. Then when I got to the correct gate I asked that assistant why there was no announcement of the change. He proceeded to tell me I didn't need to yell at him. That was unprofessional, disrepectful, and bottom line rudeness."
Pros: "Pleasant interactions"
Cons: "Didn't realize I couldn't choose my seats with United's new fare"
Pros: "Timely boarding and excellent service"
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Cons: "United has poor consideration for their customers. It does not seem that they are looking to make the trip a postive experience for the customers. Employees are rude and are not personable when in contact with the customer."
Pros: "Good experience with United. I don't usually fly with this airline wi I was kinda hesitant, but it was ok."
Cons: "I don't like that there is no free in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The crew at the gate as well as the crew on the plane were excellent and very helpful. The gate crew made rerouting very easy."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay made for an exceptionally long trip. Delays are so very common on United; especially when connecting through O'Hare."
Pros: "Fast no problems"
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Cons: "Flight was delayed until the next morning because of weather"
Pros: "I made the connection flight, luckily, w the 5 mins I had"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about w the flight. All was well"
Pros: "Coffe and snack"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "No room on board for carry on luggage and when gate checking luggage it resulted in further delaying me to make my connecting flight"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled after being delayed a few times. I was offered to be on standby on flights that's were overbooked the next day. The closest airport was 2 hours away with a different airline."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and had to pay to stay in a hotel room for the night."
Pros: "Changed gates delayed flight changed planes home late I hated this flight"
Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."
Cons: "Plane was delayed Missed connection in Denver Then while on plane about to take off, pilot realized plane lacked fuel to make our destination My 4 1/2 hour flight took 9.... Terrible experience"
Pros: "I like the text message notification service from united."
Cons: "Two of my three flights were delayed, the last one by 3 hours. My first plane was freezing cold."
Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."
Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."
Cons: "They didn't event get drinks out to the whole cabin from Newark to Boston. Paying for Internet was ridiculous for all the other fees I had to pay. There was NOTHING to o on the plane at all with out paying for it."
Pros: "Crew very friendly!"
Cons: "No entertainment (video screens ) on board flight."
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "It was a light flight, so I could have my carry-on with me even though I was in group 5. The breakfast -- berry pecan French toast -- was surprisingly tasty and satisfying (if not very attractively presented)."
Cons: "Too bad I had to pay so much for the exit row seat. I'm tall and it's needed for standard comfort (as opposed to extra comfort). Oh well. Gotta squeeze those dollars out of the passengers every way they can."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
Pros: "Everything went well; great service on both flights"
Pros: "Nothing about this leg of my trip was likeable"
Cons: "The layover went from being 47 minutes to 4 hours had to changed gates only to sit 3 more hours after the first intial hour at the first gate and communication was not the greatest to say the least then when we finally did board we were filled to capacity they couldn't fit all the luggage we sat an additional 30 on the plane before take off... The experience for the last leg of my trip was more than enough to keep me from using United again, most unorganized company I've ever seen... Other customers were telling me that they have to fly United regularly for work and this wasn't an uncommon thing for them compared to other companies they use"
Cons: "Service. Flight attendant negative attitude and disrespect for customers."
Pros: "The seats were a lot more comfortable then other airlines I've flown with. I also enjoyed the personal monitors in the back of every seat."
Cons: "I did not like that you had to pay to watch TV. I did pay to watch TV during my flight, and there were times that the connect was spotting and the picture or sound would go out. Also, in the middle of the flight, the TV did a reboot. If I am paying for this service, I expect it to work. I also did not like the boarding process. I don't know when there became so many preferred groups, but it became a little ridiculous. I felt like half the plan was in one of these numerous preferred or special seating groups. The crew was mediocre. They weren't overtly rude or anything, but they certainly weren't going out of their way to be friendly either."
