I called the stewarddess over and I was haphazardly moved to an aisle seat next to a smaller passenger. I was then bumped into repeatedly by"

Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."

Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."

Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."

Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"

Pros: "The flight was so short we did not even get a snack, only an offer of a bottle of water; this was simply due to to short length of the flight. Basic economy had my wife and I 16 rows apart each in a middle seat. I was in the very last seat on the plane. Flight attendants were attentive and surprisingly very nice, legroom is non-existent (same as every flight in plain coach)."
Cons: "High cost to prebook seats was twice what Spirit or Frontier would charge"

Cons: "We were delayed almost two hours for weather and then when I finally boarded, myself and a few other people were pulled aside to be asked new security questions and have new boarding passes printed. The people at the desk let us know that it was because we checked in online. I don't mind being asked questions but they could have done that part of the process in the two hours that we were waiting to board so as not to further delay the boarding process."

Cons: "it was cancelled "mechanical" sure heard that one before"

Pros: "Cheap fare"

Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

Pros: "Kind and courteous crew. Soft blanket for free."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. There was no internet. There was no power for electronics. There was only one movie option (terrible selection) and the screens were spaced out so far I couldn't have seen it anyway. All of this would have been ok for a short flight but for an overseas flight it was the worst I've experienced."

Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "crew was cranky"

Cons: "Need power supply for passenger seats in Economy Plus."

Cons: "Couldn’t finish check in process without checking a bag"

Pros: "Super easy & smooth flight. We left on time & arrived early."
Cons: "Nothing really. Honestly, I slept for half the trip, so it was pretty uneventful."

Cons: "The flight got delayed and we were told it was "basically cancelled" so we got on a different flight out for the morning but were told we couldn't get a hotel voucher because we volunteered to get off the flight. Very disappointed, will never fly united again. The flight ended up getting cancelled 5 minutes after we "volunteered" to get a different flight too. Luckily we were able to get onto a different airline who helped us out. United dropped the ball big time."

Cons: "Flight cancelled at last minute because of "lack of available crew"."

Cons: "No usb hookup. No food"

Cons: "Same comment as above"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice and there was no problem with the actual flight. The issue was with the United employees at the check in area."
Cons: "The employees at IAD were grumpy and put off by helping us passengers. The kiosk lines were full so after having waited for a while I went to the actual counter since there we no people in line and the agent chased em back to the kiosk. I felt that that was a very poor reflect of customer service. I expect more from United."

Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."

Pros: "The United Airline staff was very helpful. Our evening flight from another airline was cancelled and we booked the next available United flight departing early the following morning. Recommendations from the staff made our unplanned stay much more comfortable. It was greatly appreciated."

Pros: "in flight entertainment"
Cons: "No where to charge devices"

Pros: "Not much to like..."
Cons: "Once again, your people need to cater to the people that flight. The very first time I flew with United was December 14, 1982. I was 7. As an adult I have either flown with Delta or US Air. I went with United on this trip and I have to say that I am never going back on another United flight."

Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."

Pros: "Exit row on return flight"
Cons: "2 hour delay on origin, bad odor entire flight"

Pros: "Left promptly on schedule and arrived on time."
Cons: "Crew cordial but not friendly. Refreshments: I asked for water...flight attendant never asked if I wanted ice and she gave me room temperature water........"

Pros: "Very smooth flight and good seat"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and minimized the frustration with the delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay"

Cons: "I had to be in New Orleans at 12:00am so I could arrive home for an important interview on Monday morning.. My trip was cancelled and I had no knowledge of this until my arrival to the airport.. I had to pay an additional 75.00 to go back to Racine then another 75.00 to head back the next morning. When i arrived to New Orleans I was charged an additional 30.00 dollars for parking!"

Cons: "Same as above, but no snack was offered, and there was only expansive food for purchase"

Pros: "Flight took off promptly & landed early"
Cons: "Paid a lot more than I did for the same flight via delta with half the amenities. Crew not particularly friendly"

Pros: "Crew was polite and responsive."
Cons: "Flight was extremely delayed because of missing flight crew and/or pilot. Boarding announcements were very hard to follow because of overlapping PA systems at the gate. We sat at the gate for a long time before take off, which was uncomfortable because the seats are cramped for anyone above average height and I could not put my seat back or put my headrest up."

Pros: "We had excellent service on the plane and the new snacks that are handed out was a welcomed addition."
Cons: "TSA held a planned work action to have workers call in sick and my flight left 30 minutes late as at departure time we were missing over 20 passengers who hadn't gotten through TSA yet."

Cons: "My direct flight to New Orleans was canelled forcing me to arrive five hours late for my ride from the airport."

Pros: "flight was mercifully short ..."
Cons: "brand new plane with impossible seating dimensions for any normal humans, even at the upgraded price; crew increasingly more concerned with labor relations and their own dramas than with passengers comfort or experience (perhaps understandable, given management screws put to them, but still unprofessional)."

Pros: "Love the customer service and friendly staff"

Pros: "Free snacks and we arrived 30 mind early"

Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The flight attendants."

Pros: "Cheap"
Cons: "My two seats were not together and river landing very rough"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Lies about when we would leave. Next time just be honest about the fact that we didn't have a pilot instead of stringing us along for 9 hours."

Pros: "Comfortable chairs"
Cons: "There are no TV's and there are no snacks"

Cons: "There is delay in both airport for security check ! No more people to do it ! 1 hour waiting in line was very dissappointed"

Pros: "Late flight. Slow to board Given middle seat"

Pros: "Flight attendant on PA had beautiful speaking voice"
Cons: "Turbulence precluded cabin service"

Pros: "Terrible, waited all day for them to tell us they didn't have a plane had nothing to do with weather or anything else. No excuse and no compensation offered. Stranded at the airport that night and no flight offed as replacement. This is not the end of this between united and myself. Won't use them again."
