Cons: "Attendant was not friendly"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, nice crew."
Cons: "United never got us to Atlanta, we spent all day in the airport with delays and no help with seat accommodations on other flights over 4 hours in customer service lines all to be sent back home and gave our luggage lost. Basic economy is such a scam and this was the worst ever flight experience"
Pros: "*They offered a few snacks (small bags of cookies and water) during our 2 and a half hour delay. *Staff was friendly."

Pros: "The sound system had been down most of the flight. Butter cube was completed melt. Bread was cold in the center."

Pros: "The crew were friendly and courteous. And the food was delicious."
Cons: "My legs hurt during the flght and I couldn't get pills for air sickness, plus a half-an-hour delay. Also, my screen didn't work properly, which needs repair."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible food. Cramped, uncomfortable seats. No in-flight entertainment, app did not work."
Pros: "I liked that the captain communicated with the passengers about delays and the reasons for the delays over the intercom."
Cons: "I feel that I was treated by the employees at the boarding desk and by the customer service attendants as if I were garbage!!!! I was attempting to purchase an upgrade in my seating to avoid very uncomfortable swelling on my right ankle and other personal reasons. As I inquired with the man at the boarding gate about purchasing the upgrade I was told that there were none available. So I pulled out my tablet with the united airlines app and showed him the image of the empty business class seat that I would like to purchase on the seating map available in the app. He told me that he had no option on his computer screen to sell me the seat. I asked him where could I go or who could I ask to get the seat. This back and forth continued for some time where he kept saying he could not sell me the seat but I would then say, “I understand that, but do you know who can or where I can go to find someone who knows where I can buy an upgrade?” The attendant got VERY VERY upset that I was even ASKING. As if I were asking for some OUTRAGEOUS request!! I asked to speak with the manager several times. He continued by ignoring me and just saying NO! Finally he pointed to some lady beside him. I don't know if she was the manager or not, but she was on the phone and barely gave ten seconds of a glance to the situation. He asked me"Are you gonna go or not?" I could tell that he cared absolutely nothing about me or my request and was extremely dismissive in asking me this. Finally, he dismissively told me to ask the flight attendant. I could tell that this young man would be of no further help AT ALL, so I gave my ticket, went on board and thought to just try and ask a flight attendant. Right before I went to give my ticket to the man who was taking tickets, I heard the boarding gate man walk away mumbling how ANNOYING I was in Chinese. I know this because I SPEAK Chinese. This is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!! I continued to go on board hoping the flight attendants might actually have some information. When I asked, who I thought was the flight attendant, about purchasing a seat, it turns out that she was the customer service agent on the flight, she gave no effort to even try to hear what I was communicating to her. I know about communication and as a public speaking instructor, I know how to listen and to speak. She continued to raise her voice and talk over me, although I remained very calm and tried talking to her logically. I tried to communicate to her that I was attempting to purchase one of the empty business class seats that I had seen were empty. I checked the seating of the flight from the united airlines app before I had even boarded the plane. The lady continued to be very rude and uncaring. She talked over me, did not listen, her responses did not make sense, she very loudly kept asking me " CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??" as if I was a child or as if I was confrontational when I absolutely was not. I noticed I had been trying to communicate for a while.wordlimit"

Cons: "The fact that my husband was seated 18 rows behind us."
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Cons: "Extended layover by over an hour"
Pros: "Such a long walk in both miami and Newark terminals. Miami I was gate 14 and Newark just to get out. Most are now equipt w those running mats."
Pros: "Very good!"
Pros: "Flight attendants and pilots were great."
Cons: "The flight would have been great if we flew out of Hailey where there were blue skies and no snow. Instead we got on a bus to Twin Falls with very poor visibility, snow and a bus sliding all over the road. No security check before getting on the bus and no real explanation for being diverted. Our safety definitely wasn't a concern with this airline."
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."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmack for three hours and when finally got to springfield, my luggage was not there."
Pros: "Nice and quiet for an early morning flight. Just wish the tv was free the whole time since it was such a short flight it wasn't worth the $$$"
Pros: "Flight departed An hour late but caught up time on route. service was cold, rude and lazy. Many passenger brought food trash tray to the station by themselves. Bathroom was gross. Food was salty and I requested water and I was ignored. I finally raised my voice and start asking their names because I would write a complain. Tha started all hassle for me. Long story short, I was demanded to identify if I held Chinese or US passport... I have written a letter to United CEO. I got reply that I would get a reply in 24-48 hours. I'm waiting. My second leg was two hours delay from Chicago to Boston."
Cons: "those FA should be fired, especially the one who demanded to identify my nationality."
Cons: "Confusions on dates from Internet. Your site usually sets its own dates without confirming."
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "It was a really noisy flight because a little boy was crying in the back"
Cons: "Our seats were Infront of the emergency exit, couldn't relax. I'm 6'6" , so the incline if the back isn't comfortable and we couldn't recline. We had asked switching seats on our flight to Spokane because we were given the same seats. The airline told us seats were chosen at random and they couldn't control them so we had 4 legs of our two flights stuck in no reveling seats. I was very disappointed."
Cons: "The crew members were not very happy and were snappy in their replies. The seating is ridiculously small, you cannot access the carry one baggage under the seat if the person in front of you puts their seat back. The food was better this time than the flight to Beijing, still not great. I also need to add that the original flight from Chicago to Beijing had a 7 hour delay which was ridiculous, especially when traveling so far. No food vouchers were offered and passengers were kept in the dark for long periods of time. The return flight was also slightly delayed. This is not a good reputation for an airlines to have. United will not be my first choice of airlines in the future."
Pros: "The simplicity of your website."
Cons: "The guy sitting next to me."
Cons: "Comfortable and affordable!"
Cons: "I need my suitcase asap. There are lots of important stuff inside."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "My mother Vickie is hearing impaired. When her fist flight from Las Vegas to San Francisco changed terminals, she missed her flight. Not exactly something she would have been able to personally hear. Being that it was her 2nd time flying, ever, she didn't know to look for it until it was too late. Now her connecting flight from San Francisco to Anchorage has been delays to just shy of an hour. I wake up at 4am and thus is a HUGE burden on me as I'm a Dept Director at a Hospital and I need to be on my game at all times while at work."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. I wont bother letting you know how you ruined my day. Youre turning air travel a joke. The only thing mastered by you is security procedures. In the name of 20+ party we were, united is the worst ever and next time we will pay extra for a decent airline."
