Pros: "Free movie on flight to Denver was nice.... Free movies and internet was nice because I didn't have to dig around for a credit card and you pay enough for tickets anyway, that it SHOULD be free. Its there for one person, EVERYONE should be able to use it. So it was a nice perk to kill time! Boarding was awesome, but only because I have a handicap"

Cons: "Can't complain."
Cons: "Twice on this trip, the plane was not at the gate, since it needed to be delivered.......In Houston, when it was delivered, the gate agent reported that the interior was too hot, they had to cool it down.

Needless to say, the flight was over an hour late, many of us missed our connections and had to spend the night,"

Cons: "My flight was scheduled to leave at 4:51 pm. I arrived at the airport 2 and a half hours before my flight was to leave and I read the departure board to see that the flight was delayed due to maintenance. Then I saw that it was delayed again because we were waiting for a flight coming in from the Bahamas. Well my flight didn't take off until about 7:30 pm. I arrived in Denver around 10:00 pm which made me miss my shuttle to the Springs. I am a diabetic and was in need of my medication so I needed to get home. I spent extra money to take a bus to downtown Denver and a grayhound bus to the springs and a cab to my home. So my trip cost my an extra $55.00 dollars I didn't have. I have always taken United but after this experience, I will never again take United."

Pros: "After the first two delays, they upgraded me to 1st class, it was lovely. They offered nuts and water while we waited. The pilots and crew were nice."
Cons: "Every plane was delayed so much that I missed all my connecting flights. The first one was because they still had plane maintenance to do (3 & 1/2hour delay) The second, they forgot to transfer the the log book when it was full and they had to scan 26pages while we all waited with a bunch of pissed off business men who were yelling and booing the pilot:(. The third flight was delayed so much that I couldn't fly out till the next day."
Cons: "Customer service via phone was unhelp and kind of snarky. She knew I was several thousand miles from home trying to get back, but wouldn't arrange for me to get on a different plane without a $650 fee. Another airline would have bumped people off their flights so I could get hiome. I was not pleased that my missed flight couoldn't be accommodated reasonably. Apparently my ticket was wroth nothing..."
