Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."
Cons: "Boarding was poorly set up."

Pros: "Awesome service"
Pros: "Flight was smooth with no issues whatsoever!"
Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Cons: "Crew a little slow flight departed later all wwll"
Pros: "The AA staff was very friendly. The flight was late due to weather however it did not affect our connection. I believe I paid more more my seat class which proved a power outlet."

Cons: "There was no Entertainment. No Screens. Nothing. Except one small tv on the alley. I can so no entertainment for so ever"
Pros: "Good service from the flight attendants."

Pros: "The crew kept us informed as to why we didn''t leave the gate on time; they served beverages and snacks in an efficient manner. Once we got to Dallas we were early, he made up time in the air and the captain informed us that the gate was not ready to receive the plane. We waited about 15 minutes and then we got to the gate."

Cons: "This plane was a little "scarier" than the other but I believe that it was because it was such a small plane."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the employees were very nice"

Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, NOT EVEN THE SNACK ON THE PLANE"
Cons: "PLANE WAS DELAYED TWICE FOR ENGINEERING ISSUES THEN ONCE WE GOT ON THE PLANE AND IT TOOK OFF, THEY SAID WE WOULD HAVE TO FLY BACK BECAUSE THE TIRE WAS MESSED UP, THEN THEY SAID WE WOULD HAVE TO STAY IN THE SKY FOR ONE HOUR TO LET OUT SOME FUEL-WHICH TURNED INTO TWO HOURS, THEN WE WENT BACK AND JUST KEPT GETTING ANNOYED, THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO GIVE US ANOTHER FLIGHT,THEY NEVER DID- THEY GAVE ME NO OPTION OTHER THAN TO STAY IN A NASTY HOTEL, AND GIVE ME A FLIGHT FOR THE NEXT DAY. I MISSED TWO SHIFTS AT WORK, TWO SHIFTS FOR ME IS $500. NEVER AGAIN."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and no reason was given. I had to buy new flights on Southwest and ended up having to pay an extra $200 in order to get home for work on Monday."
Cons: "United, along with American, is a horrible carrier, and the next time it files for bankruptcy, needed to be allowed to remain our of business. The employees don't care about service at all, it's no longer part of their culture."
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."
Pros: "The crew was amazing as always with United."
Cons: "I believe that the food would had been better."
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful with large package"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "No entertainment, no power outlet"
Cons: "There was a delay at the beginning with no communication. The AC was off in the beginning and it was too hot hen after it wa turned up way too high and was freezing. The seats were really uncomfortable."
Pros: "The service and they way the treat you is the best."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Departed and arrived ontime."
Cons: "Old plane. No usb power outlets or tv screens. No included food service in 8 hr flight."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but little leg room."
Cons: "Difficult to find outlets between seats."
Cons: "Mechanical delay on this leg left us in a hot plane on a hot Texas tarmac. We were initially told it would take 15-20 minutes but this incrementally grew to 1-1/2 hours. Even when we were told that we were pushing away from the gate, we didn't move for another 15 minutes. At least tell the truth. Only water offered. Observed flight attendant moving cups along baggage bins.... Don't know if these were the ones he then served water in."
Cons: "Baggage took forever. . Caused a lot of confusion if at right claim carousel. Over 30min & counting...."
Pros: "mediocre service"
Cons: "constant delays"
Cons: "The crew was the worst ever!!! Very rude ladies who spent more time on their phones then serving the customers. They sucked"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "One lavatory inoperable"
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"
Cons: "Plane had very little luggage space. I'm explorer card holder boarding should be priority I was in group 2. Food was not of good quality hence lot of people left it. 3. Sets were too narrow."
Pros: "Flight crew did everything to make sure you were comfortable.on both legs of my flight, I think United airlines is doing a decent job. I had no issues or delays"
Cons: "The seats are just to close together"
Pros: "14 hour flight. The legroom in economy seating on UA 82 is an absolute joke if you are 5 feet 6 inches or taller. I am 5' 11" Charging $200 premium for economy plus which on united is a few more inches of legroom unlike other carriers where it's a step closer to business class."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working for the duration of the flight (14 hours). Legroom in economy seating $200 premium for 4 more inches of legroom No automatic upgrade for silver star loyalty membership even though plenty of seats available."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and they did not notify us"
Cons: "That i sat grounded for an extra 45min over Fuel discrepancy."
Pros: "Delayed to Albany 2 hrs, no compensation, not even a beer!"
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: "I liked kayak, recommended by a friend and my new booking application. Thank you."
Cons: "I didn't arrange for travel or fly this flight. My email was entered by someone else by mistake."
Cons: "Food options weren't good."
Pros: "Boarding procedure and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "Yyyy Ggggggggggffggvfggggdswfgggfffffrffgfggggfffff"
Pros: "When the flight took off I was asleep and when I woke up I was at my destination."
Pros: "It was a quick flight that was really nice"
Cons: "People got on at the last moment"
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: "6 Feb from Newark to Delhi the Tv out of order no one is helping hand in the flight poor service. Only one thing is good that flight is well in time"
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: "There were maybe two of the flight attendants. Who weren't rude. The rest well, I guess didn't like there jobs? I lost all my money for my first flight, because i was over 4 hours late. When i purchased a ticket from cheapo air, the person helping me was so nice. Unlike United airlines, or Viama. When i missed my flight that i paid $1,300.00, United said they'd give me another ticket for $4,000? This was a one time offer to redeem my $1,300 Viama said $10,500? I will only buy my tickets from cheapo air from now on."
Cons: "The flight attendants are very snotty, 2 out of the 18 I encountered were polite. The rest acted like they hated their jobs, and all the passengers. When you travel to another country they should have at least one person who speaks English. Can't really say much for the food, essentially requesting a vegetarian meal was out of the question, so i just starve. Drink some watered down booze, take a few dramamine and sleep. The layovers are ridiculous. 14 hours, 8 hours 4 hours? Good thing God made Beer and pizza."
Pros: "She was very friendly and on task."
Cons: "Nothing. She was great."
Cons: "It was terrible. It was ridiculously hot and the plane smelled like pee. It was the worst flight experience my fiancé and I have ever taken. Shameful condition and experience."
Pros: "Very organized boarding process."
Cons: "Entertainment/tv none unless you pay. Food...small bag of dry mix snacks or pay. Not asking for prime steaks, but a fruit would have been nice."
Pros: "Our plane was delayed, nothing could be done about that and the food at the airport was great. So our extremely quick transfer became something that let us down and have a meal. Food was okay on the flight. And the Crew was very polite. All of our bags made it, hooray! New technology at the international terminal in SFO needs better, multi-language assistance signs."
Cons: "This may have been the oldest 747 in United's inventory. There were still cigarette ash trays in the bathroom and the bathroom was not user-friendly at all. My seat was busted and would not do anything but be fully reclined with a broken headrest too. Padding/ergonomics in the seat was terrible. Entertainment was old school, only main cabin TV's, no personal selection."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and a very smooth ride"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
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: "Not much, except the fact that it could have been worse."
Cons: "- Cheap quality food. And less in quantity. Less options. And they ran out of meal options even though I indicated them at the time of booking. - Not so clean - Sickness bags were used ones and had something in them. Clearly, they were not replaced. Toilets didn't have basic supplies like moisturizers. Not to mention they were super cramped. - Entertainment system was out of 60s. Small LCD and were of the smallest resolution and viewing angles - made watching anything akin to watching those cam rips floating all over internet. - Cramped leg room. And the premium seat didn't have any better room. Overall, one of the poorest flights I have ever flown on. Even Air India has much better planes and service."
Cons: "I will never fly with your airline! My luggage is damaged, the flight was terrible at informing people about gate change, the food was not edible, do I need to continue. I just wont fly with your company."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Unfortantely their was a mechanical problem that delayed the flight. I understand that failures occur, but only having one mechanic available to work this problem is not good. What happend to the two person concept when working on critical aircraft systems? Pretty hard landing at Chicago."
Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."
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: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."
