Cons: "Plane was dirty"

Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."

Pros: "The Chicago airport is a nice airport to stay in when you're waiting for a new plane! Also the flight attendants did a very good job!!"
Cons: "The crew did a very good job of getting us on and off the plane and getting us on a new plane even though it was annoying and inconvenient!"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "All we got for food was a little bag of pretzels. Maybe not cheap out on that"

Pros: "Everything was really smooth sailing."
Cons: "Everything was great! The Charleston airport is small yet very nice inside"

Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."

Pros: "Plane broke. Gate change. Sat on the tarmac for a half hour to take off."

Pros: "The crew, was friendly and attentive to any and all needs."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to arrive in Newark at 4:30. But it did not leave Charleston until 6:15 PM! This is not the 1st time this has happened with United. It seems that they are always some kind if “weather” delay with United flights arriving and departing Newark. Also, they are constantly cancelling flights to/from there. I would suggest looking at a different airline, perhaps one that cares more about the passengers iteneraries than the number of passengers."

Pros: "crew was apologetic"
Cons: "no movie service, no wifi. this is the 3rd time this has happened to me on an international flight to China on United. so bad. every other airline has it all together"

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Entertainment system Completely broken for full duration of flight. Individual screen also broken as well as seat Broken 19C"

Pros: "- Crew was attentive."
Cons: "- Personal device entertainment was intermittently functional, had to use the poor onboard display for entertainment. - Internet access was $39.99 for the length of the trip, that price is ridiculous."

Pros: "Prescreening"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time arrival in China. Good entertainment options for my iPad, better than seat back display"
Cons: "The usual lack of attentiveness by United Flight crew"

Cons: "95% of my united flights are delayed. Today, they overbooked and asked for a volunteer. I did so and was offered a $1,500 compensation. Instead of 8:00, I would arrive at 11:00. I was very excited and patiently waited for the plane to board, so I coulD receive my new flight info. The flight is inevitably delayed, as it always is with this airline: I would have ended up missing my connection, so it seemed to work out well. However, they’re about to close the doors when the agent says “it’s not overbooked anymore” she gave me the option to so either get on that flight and wing it on my layover to find another flight, or go to Newark. But I needed to make a decision at that moment. The agent revoked the $1,500 because it was no longer overbooked and her demeanor immediately changed from The kind, accommodating agent she was when she needed me to give up my seat. She became short and rude. I got the last available seat because I was the last to board and was forced to check my bag because there was no more room. All because I was willing to change my travel plans. I get to my layover, and the earliest flight I could get would land at midnight with an additional layover. Oh! And the first class seat I was supposed to have on my second leg was not available. All of this was while I was seriously ill— throwing up, just wanting to be home. Honestly, I’ve never liked United. I constantly get over it, because it’s often the less expensive option. At this point, I am so sick of how they treat their customers, and their inability to depart on time. Last time I let them put me through this again."

Pros: "Flight left and landed on time. In flight entertainment worked."
Cons: "In flight food made me sick later in the flight."

Pros: "Prompt boarding, no delays,smooth flight. Overall a very good experience."

Pros: "Food was great and unexpected"

Pros: "There was nothing to like"
Cons: "The worst company ever!!!!!"

Pros: "Food choices"
Cons: "Average service"

Cons: "Plane sucks. Too small and poor seats. Better snack selection."

Cons: "WiFi for $39.99, used to be $19.99 before."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Great crew & very accommodating"

Pros: "Most of it"
Cons: "Purchase of snack! I only received a cracker and a soda!! Also, the movies were not free!! Really!!!!"

Cons: "Wifi access"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They comped everyone the direct tv access as an apology for the delay, but I'd rather be comped wifi."
Cons: "It ended up being a 5 hour delay. I would have been fine with it if they had told us up front that it was 5 hours, but instead it's 2 hours, then after an hour passes they tack on another hour and so on. It would be nice just to know it'll be a long wait, so we can leave and come back or reschedule our flight for the next day."

Cons: "Cramped space."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants brought a few people drinks and then disappeared leaving the rest of us thirsty"

Pros: "Timely take-off. Info from flight deck good in the beginning."
Cons: "However reporting of weather delay and the info about fuel stock on the aircraft could have been beter managed."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The whole flight seemed like a sales pitch. Pay to upgrade to our empty seats with a little more legroom. Pay to watch TV cross country (Delta, American, and all others are included). They did have more sales pitches on the screen for 6 hours though. Pay for snacks. Not even peanuts or pretzels anymore. They do give you a disgusting wafer. Flew back on Delta and didn't see any of this. Between this and their recent beating up of customers, no more United for me."

Cons: "Overall United airport staff were not helpful and not very apologetic for delays and missed connections"

Pros: "Refreshments"
Cons: "More room. The plane was not full but we still were shoved in middle seat with no room for normal shoulders without over lapping. The seating areas are not comfortable. They put three seats where there is only room for two."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."

Pros: "Easy boarding and on time . Pleasant staff. 0verall good flight"

Pros: "Connecting flights in China need more of a layover I missed my connecting flight not happy it was a disaster going through immigration takes forever in Shanghai .."

Cons: "That i got stuck in China for 2 days"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall the flights were trouble free. The seats on the CRJ145 to Chicago were pretty confortable. United is the only airline that gives passengers a complete can of coke instead of just a cup. The snack was just so so."
Cons: "The seats on the plane from Chicago to Tucson were not comfortable. I could feel the hard bottom."

Pros: "Length of flight."
Cons: "We were kept in the airport for hours on end without being informed our flight was cancelled. Something was wrong with the plane and then by the time it was fixed the crew had times out. We were given no information, the delays just kept increasing and increasing. We had to fly out the following morning which made things very inconvenient for getting rides from the airport and getting to work on time."

Cons: "Barely enough room to hoist your baggage in the overhead bins"

Pros: "That it got me from point a to b"
Cons: "Plane was very old and rickity. Crew was short. Boarded plane late and of understaffing. Overall pretty terrible."

Pros: "The flight from Charleston was uneventful"
Cons: "There was no problems flying from Charleston to Dulles"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Being able to leave on my desired day."
Cons: "This would have been my first time on this airline ans I was excited going into it with ano open mind. However as I was getting ready to head to the airport, my flight was canceled and they rebooked for another flight that would leave the next day with a 3 to 4 hour layover. I was frustrated with the flight selected and therected seemed to be no effort into suiting me with an equivalent flight in which I purchased, which was a direct flight. I spoke to a reap that found a flight on another airline, but it still was not a direct flight in which I requested. For this being my first impression I was not impressed!"

Pros: "Friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No wifi on small plane"

Cons: "Significant delays, minimal information."

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"
