The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours, transferred carriers and still don't have my bag"

Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late then suddenly was on time then again was informed it was 2 hours later, Then again ontime"
Cons: "Flight delayed so booked on another flight. Get to layover and was told that United tried but couldn't book the second leg of the flight after all.

Pros: "Price and comfortable new plane"
Cons: "Male stewardess was very unpleasant/unprofessional No food or snack or water offered to my son or I"
Cons: "I flew from OKC to Richmond, with one stop in DC. After we arrived in DC my flight to Richmond was pushed back 6 hours in perfect weather.

Pros: "The flight was fine nothing to rave about or complain about."

Cons: "I did not get a text message or a phone call that my flight had a long delay."
Pros: "United left late and then had their connecting flight leave early. Both flights were through United and on same itinerary. My teenage son was treated rudely and left to find for himself by the United counter in Dulles, even though he would have made the connection if they had adhered to the departure time. Staff refused to speak with me because, as they told my son, he was the passenger. Unbelievably poor service....and lack of care, professionalism and compassion."
