Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Dirty airplain, 12h flight, the food a disaster, crew that don’t know to smile, restrooms dirty the igienic paper and a lot more...."
Pros: "Nothing.... Seats were terrible!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Could watch movie on phone. Arrived early."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. Didn’t offer lunch options, just snacks. Barely made it to boarding due to previous United flight being delayed. Appearently, since we arrived early, was no staff at gate so couldn’t de-board."
Cons: "seats a little small"
Pros: "Plenty of leg space and crew was friendly"
Pros: "Great left ok time..."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour because no gate was available! I missed my connection by 5 min. When I asked if they could do something (hold the plane etc) since I had a connection they said, “Sir everyone has a connecting flight!” Like I was asking them to move mountains. Point is, United doesn’t care about their costumers. I see them going out of business soon. They have terrible costumer service. I missed the holidays with my family and had to buy a new plane ticket on a different airline because they could not reschedule me on time!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "The leg room in the plane. I know airliners want to put as many people in a flight as possible but for tall people no leg room is bad."
Cons: "My flight was changed and I missed a very important meeting that I had to be at."
Pros: "Nothing. Flying has become an nightmare. I will avoid in the future. Late flights and miss connections seem the norm now in this dysfunctional industry."
Cons: "I don't like having to waste my valuable time in airports for days to make a short flight."
Cons: "The boarding process was unnecessarily complicated by United Airlines. I was made to wait right until take off time without any information while they "confirmed my visa" on which I entered the US multiple times in the past."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours due to a maintenance issue"
Pros: "That I FINALLY got home."
Cons: "Total snafu from start to finish."
Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."
Cons: "Average seats, no in flight entertainment or beverage service"
Cons: "Food was embarrassingly poor I would rather pay additional fees to upgrade to s quality meal Bags in Edinburgh took over an hour and a half to retrieve But, the flight was safe and the crew very good"
Pros: "On time, good customer service."
Cons: "Cramped seats, some rows had 1 person and some had 3. Didnt offer them to people who were cramped.. 4 and a half hour flight and small bag of snacks"
Cons: "Ever since gas prices went up to 5 a gallon years ago, the airlines started charging for food, checked bags etc etc. Now that gas prices have come down, the airlines still charge for said items. Totally LAME"
Pros: "The fact that I actually arrived"
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled. Had a crappy middle seat because the rebooked flight was over booked. New layover time was an hour and a half longer than the original. And THEN, the flight was delayed for 4 HOURS PLUS. different reasons were given for the flight delay each time. Gate staff didn't really seem to care. Horrible horrible experience."
Pros: "On time, comfortable but crowded"
Pros: "The staff was great."
Cons: "Not necessarily their fault, but there was a lot of turbulence and at one point I hit my head pretty hard. Puddle jumpers are never for tall people. I do wish they made them just a bit more comfortable to walk through."
Cons: "Overbooked as usual on a flight we had no chance to make"
Cons: "How I was notified last minute and had to figure out"
Pros: "Attendant was nice."
Cons: "Unexpected, unannounced delay put us into Chicago 30 minutes late. I was scheduled to have a 45 minute layover, now down to 15. I was given no support getting to my next gate, that plane was not held despite the fact that I ran across the terminal to catch it."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, even if they were dealing with travelers who were cranky about it being so late."
Cons: "Twelve hours before the flight and they already knew that the flight would be delayed due to the inbound plane being later. One flight earlier in the day caused a delay for the rest of the day. So, our flight was three hours late in boarding, putting us into the final destination at 2:15 AM. Not cool, especially when travelling with children."
Pros: "I liked the plane and the short flight. The flight crew seemed sour and never got a hello or good bye or any interaction."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Almost ruined my trip and lost a day of vacation"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, so I cancel my flight with United and went with another airline that was ontime."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lots of selection for movies."
Cons: "Drink service was so slow. Literally had to beg for drinks"
Pros: "Nice crew and pleasant flight."
Cons: "Only offered water and no snack"
Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight from PHX to RNO the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."
Pros: "Good quick flight"
Pros: "getting there"
Cons: "getting there late"
Cons: "My husband and I had different boarding groups. How are the groups figured out? We were sitting next to each other. Maybe it was because my TSA did not appear on my boarding pass. Why??"
Pros: "Roomy for a small plane"
Cons: "Hard to get online, much smoother on connecting flight. Hated landing in SFO."
Cons: "Seats arent very comfortable"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off."
Cons: "Gate agent was lazy and purposely gave me my friend's boarding pass and check in tag after telling him that wasn't my name, causing my friend to have issues on her flight after mines."
Pros: "Great experience, love the crew, super nice, will fly again."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "This flight was very short the entertainment was non existent, I dealt with a hour delay which made me arrive 3 hours later to where my final destination was. I chose the connecting flight so I could leave at the earliest possible flight. Due to the delay I ended up arriving in Boston way later and had to take the last bus and boat to get to Martha's Vineyard my destination. its just frustrating planning it all out only to have your plans almost ruined because of a delay."
Cons: "We were delayed which happens. That alone isn't a big deal. However, we sat on a runway for over 40 minutes without an update. Then we were told it will be 15 minutes and we returned to a terminal. Zero additional updates for about 50 minutes later. Crew or captain could at least kept us updated so we knew. Very poor service. Crew was friendly and good during the flight"
Pros: "Again everybody was nice and we got on the plane on time."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to find the gate because it was one outside. The small plane was suffocating."
Pros: "Nothing to like about a cancelled flight"
Cons: "That they were only able to acomodate me two days later on another airline on a non direct route"
Cons: "Did not advise that the $30.00 Costa Rica exit fee was now included in the ticket price."
Pros: "The gate agent agents and inflight crew on this flight were great. Unusual for United inflight crew. Delayed, missed next flight but they knew that and prepared us accordingly by getting us a later connection."
