We were delayed waiting for 2 delayed travelers. My other issues concerned 2 fellow passengers.
Boarding was too long. The Seats are too thin. The snacks were water and a cookie.
Pros: "Snacks and movies"
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "CCheck in process was horrible I only had a small bag which fit under the seat and yet I could not check in online or at the kiosk without somebody coming out to certify that my bag was indeed small very stupid and very cumbersome. I’ve been a United flyer for 30 years and this is the worst experien"
Pros: "I reached home"
Cons: "The WORST leg room in economy The WORST entertainment in economy The WORST customer service in economy The WORST food in economy. And I'm companring with other US carriers (American, Jet Blue, Delta, Southwest) -- NOT even international carriers."
Pros: "On time, smooth and lots of cabin space for my carried on."
Cons: "United should have allowed the super-economy ticket holder to check in online get my boarding pass especially I didn’t have any bag to check in. I was almost late for my plane because counter assistance is needed in my case, while there was no counter for NO-bag check-in. The kiosk rejected my check-in as well as online check-in. It was confusing and frustrating; I felt like the United Airline did that on purpose to deter the super-economy ticket buyer. Please be aware of time to take to check in with NO BAG with Super-Economy ticket at EWR."
Pros: "It was a satisfying experience with United Airline from ABE shuttle bus ride (I said Shuttle) to EWR, and short plane ride to PBI. Excellent food selections at terminal C."
Cons: "Too bad the DD at the terminal didn’t accept ordering via DD App."
Cons: "This particular flight had little leg room for me (6 ft tall). Also, my wife had to check her carry on but on the prior flight she did not. I would prefer never checking bags."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Distance between gates"
Cons: "Airport transfer; timing; information availability; security chaos"
Pros: "We boarded quickly and pleasantly were upgraded to first class The crew was pleasant and efficient the flight smooth and arrived estly"
Cons: "There was nothing not liked"
Pros: "we were on time, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Boarding goes from the front of the plane to the back. When you're sitting towards the back, it's not ideal to have to trip over fellow passengers who are already seated in the front. Why not board from the back to the front like other airlines?"
Pros: "When i initially bought my round trip tickets. I chose the seating assignments for my boyfriend and i. When i got to PBI to check in, computer showed we did not have seats. When i questioned the ticket agent, she replied, "it didn't matter when you purchased tickets and it doesn't matter if you chose your seats, you can be bumped at any time". ..so after everyone boarded, then turns out my bf and i can't sit together, we ended up 5 rows from eachother, and we both have anxiety from flying. I am very disappointed with United Airlines, and will do my best not to book with them again. NOT THE FRIENDLY SKIES."
Cons: "Our plane arrived late causing a 20 minute delay, and then we sat at the gate for a very long time after boarding, which ended up in a full hour delay getting out of Newark."
Pros: "Courteous and no delays"
Pros: "United club in terminal A."
Cons: "Flight delays. 2:21 delayed until 3:33 delayed until 5:55 delayed until 6:15pm. Too many excuses. Plane late to arrive. Mechanical maintenance And then the plane was practically empty. So I am thinking. Could these delays be a result of not enough passengers to fill plane and so let's delay and make excuses and get as many passengers on one plane. Hmmmm. Get it together guys!"
Pros: "Staff on and off plane were pleasant and went out of their way to accommodate."
Cons: "Plane malfunction delayed flight two hours"
Pros: "Other than being extremely late, business as usual"

Cons: "flight was leaving at 8:30 and left after 12 midnight. had to pay extra for a rental,car because rentwl agency went with was closed after 3 am. just keep,pushing it back"
Pros: "Safe flight"
Pros: "The plane was not full and they made check my small Cary on then there was room overhead The delay on maintenance of the plane"
Cons: "Multiple delays labeled "operational delays" ended up "canceled due to weather" even though there was no weather anywhere sin the country at the time. Our plan was at the gate from the night before but they just didn't have crew to operate the planes."
Pros: "No delays."
Cons: "Entertainment was close to none."
Pros: "Timing...on time"
Cons: "Staff were immature , unprofessional and not customer service oriented at all."
Cons: "The gate was so small there was not enough seating for the number of passengers. That coupled with the flight delay made for a bad experience at the airport."
Pros: "Every thing about United this trip , from the efficiency of the gate to the flight itself , I upgraded to first class this trip due to an injury , I never said a word but the staff noticed I was in distressed and I couldn't help but notice how accommodating the entire crew was concerned for my comfort and were on point , also at the same time if I was trying to sleep no one bothered me until I was awake and looking around"
Cons: "Nothing , the Captain was able to find a better route then suggested because of hurricane Mathew ,, we landed earlier than expected from departure"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. Seats are very small. Snacks were ridiculously small."
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are very small. Felt like the person next to me was practically sitting on top of me."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Flight was as smooth as glass; great on time for departure and arrival."
Cons: "Did not give senior citizens who needed it any extra time to board; only disabled people. Free snack portion was extra stingy. Other airlines we fly moffer more than one tiny package! One of our party had a seat (aisle) that he could not move in once seated. Free entertainment was very stingy! Other airlines offer much more free entertainment in the way of TV."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and a very smooth ride"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "The seats gave me a backache. The entertainment system made you pay to even hear news or track the flight. The screen was so close you couldn't really watch"

Cons: "Sat on plane over an hour before take off, no explaination provided."
Pros: "At least they were able to get us on the next flight."
Cons: "Security lines at Newark took us an hour and 45 minutes so we missed our flight. The lines were crazy and there was no security. People were cutting ahead and fighting. It was like survival of the fittest. Then when we got rebooked the boarding passes wouldn't work and we had to be last on the plane. The male flight attendant was rude even to my 7 and 10 year old who sat alone because there were no seats together. My 7 year old didn't know what tray table in the upright position meant and the attendant was giving him a hard time instead of just helping him."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful"
Cons: "The plane didn't take off for an hour later because they said it wasn't prepare for takeoff-in the airplane was so cold everyone was freezing. They could've done something for us like a free snack or free TV for waiting an hour"
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing"
Cons: "Everything nothing was pleasing it was torture"
Cons: "The flight was over two hours delayed and every twenty minutes we found out it was delayed another 30 minutes. The crew was terrible. There was no beverage service, and when I asked for a blanket at the beginning of the flight the crew didn't give it to me for over 2 hours. The crew was also very rude in general. There was no entertainment of any kind. The pilots kept pushing back the time we were taking off every 15 minutes and kept changing the arrival time drastically. Overall, horrendous experience."

Pros: "All seats were very comfortable and spots where I can view everything and crew were awesome."
Cons: "Local travelers should be offered even water."

Cons: "Cleanliness of plane and limited movies"

Pros: "Whatever positive experience we had was overwhelmed by careless handling of our luggage."
Cons: "Luggage nor sent from Brussels to Florence. On day 2 they had no clue where our 2 pieces were. Both pieces were bar-coded and there was. File complaint number did not help. we travel regularly and it has been many years sine we had luggage problems."
Pros: "Got a free cup of orange juice"
Cons: "Was just a bit tired and irritable from the delayed flight before."
Cons: "My luggage was lost and still haven't received it. Very disappointed in the service."
Cons: "1. During check in, they change my seat number that i choose during the reservation process from a front window seat to a rear isle seat 2. Flight was supposed to land in Hamburg. Because of a storm, they went to Hannover. They announced that the time we will stay in Hannover is unknown. Maybe 2 hours... but then no news from the crew during our stop. 3. Several passeNgers asked to get out in Hannover. The crew said they will ask if possible. After one hour waiting in Hannover they did not even ask the airport authorities. Passengers insisted. The crew then said no because they do not want to go through the luggage finding process. 4. Weather was too hot. Waiting time was too long. Passengers Needed drinks and food. Crew only sold these without even offering free snacks, sandwitches, or drinks. 5. Babies and kids were there. No food nor drinks. They survived during 5 extra hours on the plane schedule on biscuits and water. Personnel did not even think of ordering food from hannover airport while waiting there. They only SOLD the snacks they have. 6. We returned to humburg with 5 hours delay over our original schedule. Stayed 2 hours until we got our luggages on the belt 7. Some passengers had to go back to hannover by train. We discover that all trains were stopped die to problems caused by the storm on the railway. They had the choice either to take very expensive taxis or to sleep over in Hamburg!! 8. This could have been avoided if brussel airline had some good will to at least help those passengers get their luggage and leave in Hannover! 9. Overall: very bad experience and crue attitude in Brussel Airlines!"
Cons: "Mocarella and tomatoes wrap was not tasty. Tomatoes seemed to be old."
Pros: "The airline insisted I check my bag because it was 2lbs over the weight, but it was an empty flight. We had a transfer in Brussels where some how the tags on the bags were not there and we were without a luggage for 5 days. I feel that the Venice airport claim was horrible as they seem to misplace luggage alot and on our transfer flight they fave us the wrong carousel. The service on the plane was great. But that was it."

Pros: "Flight was delayed and we had to spend time Waiting both in the terminal and the plane. But crew was very nice!"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have been given a free snack or some water while waiting. We got a tiny chocolate which was nice but didn't make up for the waiting time"
Pros: "Good movies , decent food"
Cons: "Boarding took forever and cause a departure delayed of 1 hour."
Pros: "SN (Brussels Airlines) took on them to organize a flight via Lufthansa. this as soon as they had the info about the strike,."

Cons: "Required to pay even for a soft drink or juice."
Cons: "Need more movies. Fly this route all the time and very little change."
Cons: "I was unable to check-in online, Lufthansa said see Brussels Airlines and Vice Versa. The check in process at Dulles was very poor (this was the Brussels Airlines desk) Chaotic would sum it up best. The meal on the flight was very poor, even the staff apologized before I said anything, they were quite embarrassed. Hopefully the flight back on Lufthansa will be a huge improvement !!"
Pros: "I liked the leg room in economy but the chairs were very uncomfortable for sleeping. The staff was amazing and helpful and overall an enjoyable flight."
Pros: "I liked the crew. They were really nice and spoke many languages. Even though my seat was in the middle I still was able to see out of the window."
Cons: "There was nothing:)"
Cons: "The seats were completely uncomfortable, they have a leather thing where you put your neck on (on the long flights) which is completely uncomfortable. on one flight there was no entertainment system at all, and in the long one it was fine. Also on one flight while we have already been on the plane the light was delayed by over an hour, because they overbooked or something- it was pretty hell inside, very hot- and no one has even offered a warer. recommendation: avoid."
Pros: "Great plane and a crew,"
Cons: "the most uncomfortable seats. A tourchere to seat for ý hours."
