Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Cons: "Never again!"
Pros: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."
Cons: "No electronic check-in; No seat assignment; will be avoiding flying Delta"
Cons: "1. Boarding order is not by seating making boarding very inefficient"

Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."

Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."

Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"

Cons: "Super small and crowded flight, no safe distance whatsoever. A particular older flight attendant was cranky."
Cons: "Way too crowded on the plane"
Cons: "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"
Cons: "This was a red-eye from Costa Rica to Chicago. I sat in the very back row, so I really felt the turbulence back there. But I had no chance of sleeping through it because my seat would not lean back; in fact it was so far upright that I was almost leaning forward. I can normally sleep on any flight but this was like sitting in a tiny cage designed to prevent me from finding any remotely comfortable position or getting any rest at all. They should not be allowed to sell a seat like this."
Cons: "Where should I begin? Incoming flight was late, so UA 1560 was delayed. After boarding, IFE was not working. Crew could not get it to work. Snack options were NON-existent for a 5-hour flight. Upon arriving at Newark, the gate was not available. Come on United this is your hub. Final straw, the baggage took about 50 to 60 minutes to arrive."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight had a THIRTEEN hour delay. The plane was very old and broken (we couldn’t fly because of a broken fuel gauge)."

Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"
Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."
Pros: "Leg room was good in economy plus but no entertainment. Flight ran on time though."
Cons: "WiFi was broken and only refreshments offered! No meals for purchase only snack boxes that were horrible."
Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."
Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"

Pros: "Nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Hard, uncomfortable seats."

Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"
Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"
Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"
Pros: "No problems and the crew was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."
Pros: "There was no in-flight entertainment. I like when the planes have the TV's so you can watch."

Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"
Pros: "Our departure was delayed by a pump problem of some kind. Then the pilot aborted a takeoff because of another error. Needless to say, we were a bit nervous."
Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."
Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."
Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."
Pros: "Delays seem to be frequent with united and the staff is always in a bad mood. Will not fly again with them, I flew one leg on a different airline so I wouldn't miss my international connection as they wanted to delay 6 hours!!!"
Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."
Pros: "Good non.stop to Costa Rica."
Cons: "Best flight to Costa Rica out of the tristate area."
Cons: "Didn't happen"
Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."

Cons: "Food was extremely expensive. Snacks were so simple. Had to pay for entertainment. Also paid for my baggage, i thought it was included. It was a carry on and had to check that in, absurd."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"
Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"
Cons: "Like a city bus in the sky"
Cons: "Spirit airlines is as cheap as they are on the front end because they have a ton of fees they charge on the backend, and it’s a 100% rip off. Very upsetting to know that the luggage is only 40 pounds And they charge for extra carry-on items."
Cons: "Delayed, no info on when or why, app didn’t update to show delay, front desk people rude."
Pros: "Some but not all staff were friendly and apologetic and put forth effort to satisfy their customers."
Cons: "There were no wheelchairs available. A large amount of other flyers were in desperate need of wheelchair access including a blind women.

Pros: "We arrived a few minutes early"
Cons: "They kept changing their minds on whether my son had to check his skateboard. Finally decided yes, charged us for another bag when if they had told us earlier, we could have added it.
