Cons: "Ditto from above"
Cons: "Breakfast for economy:))"
Pros: "It was more or less on time. No big surprises or issues."
Cons: "The United Club in Chicago is barely better than the airport itself. Why is there no place to fill water bottles? The place looks very worn and shabby. The movie selection on board was very limited"
Cons: "Counter at Asheville, point of origin for the flight, was unattended at recommended arrival time. Attendant, when he finally appeared, seemed, to this traveler at least, unengaged, abrupt, even rude, certainly not as welcoming and helpful ad other UA counter attendants at busier airports and at more demanding times. The word lazy comes to mind. The same individual handled the gate. His demeanor there was similar. If it is UA policy to leave counters unattended, an explanation should be posted; if present policy requires one individual to handle counter and gate duties, perhaps more help is needed. This experience, all the more frustrating when a passenger ruses early so as to comply with recommended arrival and boarding times, combined with the fact that the incoming flight significantly delayed AVL to Washington depart setting the tone for a mostly mediocre experience crowned by a painful trek from terminal A to terminal C to catch the connection to PVD. Not a best effort by UA. Outstanding flight and cabin crews saved the day."
Cons: "Few more food options"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful with large package"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "Nothing, and I’m a very agreeable person.... Always"
Cons: "Every person employed by United is either overworked until the point of jadedness is issued with their first paycheck, or they get paid in Monopoly money. There were flight delays, and really I was good with that, but when I approached a staff member, he literally said “what do you want?!” Before I even opened my mouth. The phone lines are operated by someone in a foreign country. And after the flight caused me an overnight layover, they offer you a measly discount voucher for a place to stay. I can only hope that someone out there is getting better treatment than the poor people I saw on this flight, or at any united desk I attempted to get help from."
Pros: "No problems to deal with"
Cons: "Baggage took forever. . Caused a lot of confusion if at right claim carousel. Over 30min & counting...."
Pros: "service was very good...food and drink was good....lay flat seats are marvelous for a nice restful flight....flight left SFO early and reached CDG early. all around outstanding job for United.... as footnote, the fare we found on Kayak was really unbeatable...."
Cons: "this flight was all good!!"
Cons: "Plan was late. Had to fix radio on plane. Dat on plane for 1 1/2 hours to get engine started. Never again"
Pros: "Outstanding service. On time very nice employees"
Cons: "No complaints at all."
Pros: "Crew was very professional. No issues."
Cons: "There couldn't be less seating space. I get the need to maximize seata, but come on."
Pros: "Frankly, I didn't like anything. Flying economy, even economy plus for more than 2 hours is not comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment system had an annoying buzz in the system."
Cons: "This flight and three others arrive into Dublin at 5:00 am This is a bizarre time to arrive at a destination"
Cons: "Flight delayed appropriately due to weather but staff at United gave out misinformation and apparently not able to keep apace with information some of us passengers finally accessed online from United. The Asheville airport is small and the only restaurant closed - so for 4 hours we were left with no certainty, no food, and incorrect answers. Perhaps it is because airport is small, or the particular staff people were unable to focus. Flight itself was great."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid entertainment"
Pros: "Directv on board"
Cons: "No food. Delayed. Bad crew"

Cons: "Our flight was canceled and they did not notify us"
Cons: "That i sat grounded for an extra 45min over Fuel discrepancy."
Pros: "Friendly, attentive crew made being scrunched in economy much pkeasanter than on other trips. They seemed to like their work, each other and us! This is not always the case."
Cons: "Trouble getting in-flight entertainment screen to work. Crew member Rick rebooted it for me and the problem was solved."
Pros: "Delayed to Albany 2 hrs, no compensation, not even a beer!"
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays including on plane then everyone was kicked off. We waited more and they cancelled the whole flight and everyone had to scramble to get on anything available. I lost 28 hours of my vacation. They put us in a scary hotel in Chicago. I received a $200 voucher for further flights that doesn't even cover the cost of my unrefundable expenses such as car, hotel and tickets that were lost on my vacation."
Pros: "The seats were soft. The convenience of flying out of Asheville was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes waiting. When the captain spoke, no one on the plane could understand a word he said due to the poor speakers, his accent?, and he spoke too fast. I nearly missed my connection in Chicago."
Pros: "All was very convenient for me"
Pros: "I liked kayak, recommended by a friend and my new booking application. Thank you."
Pros: "Nothing again!!!"
Cons: "Having to fly to LHR to get home, even that flight was delayed. Typical United methinks."

Pros: "Entertainment options were great, the crew was super friendly, and the food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "Seats seem to get smaller every time I board, and despite flight information stating there were power outlets and wi-if, there was neither."
Pros: "Boarding procedure and crew were excellent!"
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "In order to upgrade to economy plus or first class, it would have cost more than my round trip flight. Flight left late and arrived late."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding at the gate"
Cons: "Tight seats. Slow service on the flight."
Pros: "I missed my flight with Alligent due to an overturned tractor trailer and they couldn't do anything to help me (I'll never fly with them again) and I had to book a last minute flight with United, very easy just pricy due to last minute. Thanks!"
Pros: "She was very friendly and on task."
Cons: "Nothing. She was great."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Same.as above."
Cons: "crammed seats, I’m 6"5'"
Pros: "Biggest hassle of many flights these days is dealing with on board luggage. If people insist on bring all luggage into the cabin, they should be required to have one piece under the seat and only one overhead."
Cons: "Drives me nuts to find there is no gate available when we arrive."
Cons: "The plane was so cold that my feet literally went numb. I had to run through O'Hare to get to my next flight."
Pros: "Excelent services and good customer services"
Pros: "Boarding was painless despite being a full flight. Plane left on time."
Cons: "Complete failure of the wifi based streaming system. And not just for me, but the whole plane. Probably never fly with UA long distance again for this. Failed on the way out and on the way back. I have no faith that it will work the next time. Crew were sympathetic but powerless to fix it. A stale sandwich is forgivable, not having any on demand movies to watch for 11 hours isn't ."
Pros: "Need to think!"
Cons: "We had requested for Asian vegetarian for all the 3 family members. Only 2 were given Asian vegetarian during first half. For the second half, my daughter was given meat sandwich! We are vegetarians due to our religious beliefs and our request for Asian vegetarian meal was totally disregarded. At DC wheelchair was not available even after waiting for several minutes. The staff said she had called for wheelchair 4 times and asked us if we wanted to wait more or walk to the shuttle that was waiting. Since we didn't know how long it would take, we decided to walk to the shuttle. This was a United flight that Luftansa had tie up with and it has been very disappointing experience. I used to like Luftansa and have recommend it to my friends in the past. Even though my tickets were with Luftansa, the experience was nothing like before. I plan to share my experience with friends and family and probably think twice before purchasing tickets via Luftansa!"
Pros: "I experienced absolutely no problems before/during after my flight. Everything went smoothly. I wish every flight ran as smoothly as the two flights I took that day."
Pros: "Movie selection and delivery/access was very good"
Cons: "Seat legroom is insufficient. There was a water leak in the ceiling that dripped cold Wster on me for a portion of the trip."
