Cons: "Bad airline delays change gates horrible not recommended"
Pros: "Had Good space (not crowded plane)"
Cons: "Food, wasn’t what I call food... No entertainment at all."
Pros: "Empty flight- every passenger could have had their own row! Excellent piloting through a rough approach on a short landing."
Cons: "The weather upon arrival- uncontrollable. So, nothing else about this flight could have been better."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."
Cons: "Now United is showing the struggle by selling food on board the plain. Thats not a good sign of business for loyal travelers"
Cons: "I missed having the navigation map when traveling such a long distance."
Pros: "Comfy seats. Flights on time. Free pretzels."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally nice."
Cons: "Advising passengers in a timely fashion about weather delays. Left for air post @ 3:15 for a 5:58 flight. When I got to Newark I discovered my flight was delayed. Left the party early, which was reason for trip to sit in airport for hours. I generally fly Jet Blue & I definitely will stay with that airline. Second experience & last one with United. Paid $25 extra for a roomier seat which I never have to do with Jet Blue."
Pros: "good seating. I am 6'5" and i was pretty comfortable"
Cons: "The fight to flint was canceled last night beacuse they had no captian. What the heck!!! My mom is a senior citizen and the last thing she needed to be doing was schlepping all of her things to and from the airport in fridged temps. She’s battling a major cough and is now so exhausted!! This is totally unacceptable...not to have a captian?!???! Please respond as to how I will be reimbursed or what I can do to feel satisfied."
Pros: "The quick flight."
Cons: "The crew. It was obvious she does not like her job. She seemed as if the people are an inconvenience and everything was so repetishous."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "Very crowded flight - almost overbooked!"
Pros: "It was a United Flight which I have taken before and is always good. Great flight attendants, good food and close to on time"
Cons: "This particular flight is on a very old 747 which does not have individual seat back video screens."
Cons: "Only sent a code for bad wifi on one of two trips. I wish united airlines would step up their game. At least I didn't get dragged off."
Pros: "Most of it"
Cons: "Purchase of snack! I only received a cracker and a soda!! Also, the movies were not free!! Really!!!!"
Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"
Pros: "Not much. We did arrive alive, which is the best part of it."
Cons: "Late, very late without any explanation. Only one food service in flight."
Cons: "back of lane smelled like lavatory - ugh"
Pros: "Short flights"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and good service."
Cons: "Not really flight related, but having the call buttons located on arm rests was terrible and interrupted sleep for everyone whenever someone's arm would bump a button and set it off."
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice"
Cons: "My first class seat would not recline and I had a broken leg in casting, it was absolutely difficult for me to stay up the 6 hours flight. The food choice was only one choice since the run out of the other selection."
Pros: "The plane was not very full...that made the experience so nice. All passengers were there early and boarded quickly allowing us to leave the ground ahead of schedule. They offer entertainment using their app on your phone or notepad."
Pros: "A seat assignment"
Cons: "A full flight late taxiing and baggage fees"
Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"
Pros: "Not sure why was contacted"
Cons: "I was forced to buy another ticket from another airline because it was cheaper, rather than change flights because of military orders. I also have to to another airport. zero customer service"
Pros: "They put me and my son in the very last row of the airplane. I realize this is probably the only way I could afford to fly so I will put up with it, but it isn't very comfortable for 73 year old woman."
Cons: "We were not told about the 20 min delay over the speaker from Newark to Flint Flight attendant basically ignored us for drinks and picking up garbage Newark to Flint"
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay"
Pros: "Ease in check in and boarding."
Cons: "Plane size was small until I mentally adjusted."
Pros: "We boarded timely, and quickly. All the staff were friendly."
Cons: "Overhead storage in back seats, area was full of flight attendants belonging. Hard to find room for our 1 carry on. (I realize they need room too, but thought they had their own space)promot"
Pros: "cheerful, helpful crew text message giving me flight updates"
Cons: "flight was late due to unavailable equipment no peanuts for those of us who must have gluten-free snacks"
Cons: "6'2" broad shoulders and uncomfortable. Sitting by the window meant my leg had to be 5 inches over due to the curvature of the plane. Both of my knees were on the back of the seat and I was at an angle. The lady next to me looked like she did't like me being turned toward her. Many extra seats including the emergency exit row (that has more room) was available when we took off but I was told we couldn't sit there without paying extra. Cheap 1 hour flight. Won't tolerate it for anything else."
Pros: "Pretty typical domestic flight. The crew on this flight definitely seemed tired and "over it". The one attendant stood blankly, staring off to the back of the plane robotically going through the safety. Far cry from the staff on my previous 10+ hour flight from Munich."
Cons: "No free entertainment whatsoever, and even though the screen reads that flights under 2 hours are $5.99, and our flight was a few minutes under 2 hours, the price was still the regular $7.99. Not worth it."
Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "United is always late it seems"
Pros: "These days we can all admit flying is not what it used to be before 9/11. It's still professional and curtious, but the awareness and appreciation of passengers has dwindled. Stewards and stewardesses go through the motions and do just what they need to do not more. The pilots got the plane to its destination well within the time sometimes even a half an hour early. But sometimes being that early means sitting on the tarmac for 40 minutes which cut it close to missing my next flight. Flights used to offer blankets if passengers were cold. If the plane is not full they do allow passengers to move seats to be more comfortable. The complementary beverage is still always a nice touch but seconds aren't offered and cups are often taken before they're finished. It would be nice to see our country's airlines go back to a little more awareness and appreciation for one another, and work to improving their levels to above satisfactory. The flight was supposed to have entertainment viewable on personal devices but going through the app to select something was told this flight didn't have access. Overall it was satisfactory."
Cons: "It was a little too cold on the plane. Blankets weren't offered. The food while it looked delicious needed to be warmed and the only option was coffee for warming it."
Pros: "On time!!!!"
Cons: "Only water served"
Pros: "Flights were on time, no delays."
Cons: "Three hour Houston delay; I accepted a change in scheduled flights with less delays and $300 compensation, but the offer was withdrawn without explanation. And had to switch seats in the first leg to redistribute weight."
Pros: "Short. Crew was efficient"
Cons: "Flight delayed 50 minutes."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "How the flight attendance was pleasant"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "The seats were cramped. Many people carried on extra bags as the price per bag checked was $25.00 a bag -- so there was a lot of bags carried on and delayed the process."
Cons: "I am almost always cold. Not so on this flight. The temperature on the plane was so miserably hot that I had sweat pouring down my face. Everyone around me was trying to open their air vents to get more cool air and/or fanning themselves. I asked the flight attendant about it and he said that the plane was just old and it would cool off eventually. It did, about 20 minutes before they cut the air down again for landing. By the time I got off the plane I was nauseated from the heat and stale air. It will be a long time before I fly United again if this is any indication of the condition of their planes."
