Cons: "Nothing al contrario all excellent"
Pros: "Smiling attendants."
Cons: "After buying alcohol in Guatemala, at the duty free shop, the workers at the shop taped the small boxed jars in bubble wrap - not, I discovered in an official duty free bag. So security stopped me in Houston, I went back to the United counter where they were going to charge me $15 to send it to Sacramento. I didn't spend the money. Dissapointing."
Cons: "No one notified me that my trip was cancelled I found out myself and then had to rebook after waiting two and a half hours on hold for someone at United for assistance no one ever answered"
Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Waited on phone twice for 45 plus minutes to find alternate flight."
Pros: "No layover and the guy was nice to sit all 3 of us together."
Cons: "Unorganized for boarding, unorganized for check in, no snacks, no meals available on flight or at the airport due to it being a late flight."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The flight was delay by 2.5 hrs"
Cons: "Delay by 2.5 hts"
Pros: "Arriving in the states"
Cons: "Charging 28$ to check one bag on an international flight? When did that change and why? I will fly somebody else from now on. What greed!"
Cons: "I had to wait 16 hours, it was a serious delay"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Changed gate without notifying anyone. Running around trying to catch connection with very little time."
Pros: "The attendant on this flight was very nice. many times and to get on a flight with United the attendants seem like they don't want to be there and they don't want you to be there. But this man was genuinely joyful to each customer."
Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous having five flights leaving out of one gate in five minute increments is very confusing this could definitely be better organized"
Pros: "On time flight and no problems at all"
Cons: "The plane was having some air conditioner issues but the flight crew informed every one of the problem and what they were doing to fix it. They also came around with water very quickly for everyone to help cool them down. It was either push forward and wait for it to cool down once we got in the air or change planes, I was totally ok with how they handled it."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours because they were waiting on an aircraft, which happens but no one to the time to explain or apologize even when asked. An apology goes a long way when you are stuck in an airport with every restaurant closing and you're hungry and tired. Definitely only flying delta or southwest from now on."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not entertainment"
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself. I try to use the liegjt above my seat to call for another staff and this lady yelled NO No No you have to stand up and get it yourself. Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "I didn't like much. The employees were great and that's about it!"
Cons: "I've only flown with United for four flights. And of those four flights they have been delayed for three of them. To be specific about this flight, straight off the bat the flight was late due to a late arriving plane.. Understandable. Then to top it off they had no pilot. So then the 1.5 hour delay has now turned into a four hour wait. But I'm still waiting for the flight so the wait could be even longer yet. The airline should consider refunding everyone's money on this flight. An hour delay is one thing, but four hours is uncalled for. Never flying with United again."
Pros: "Cheap flight no problem."
Pros: "short flight nice crew"
Cons: "no food like in Europe"
Cons: "Small seats. They r making problem cause of small camera bag and the plain was half empty!"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight. I bought my ticket 3 months in advance but I was not given a seat until moments before the flight. Terrible. Never again with this airline."
Pros: "A little snack going with the beverage service. The wifi was cheaper than Air Canada's."
Cons: "Minimum legroom, entertainment system is not on demand and u have to pay for that...Wifi is way slower than the one on Air Canada. Also, boarding was very chaotic and the gate agent seems really not wanna work there."
Cons: "Flight was more than an hour late. My bags came back in terrible shape. One of them got torn"
Cons: "Two hours Delay not good"
Pros: "The only thing i lkied about the flight was that they delivered my bag even though it came out 3 days later"
Cons: "I had a really bad flight my flight was supposed to be a 8hrs flight n i got home 14hrs later also they forgot my bag n they delivered to me 3 days later i was really disappointed"
Cons: "Free entertaiment. Not only pay"
Cons: "Delayed, needed to change the second leg"
Cons: "There were parts of this trip that were out of your control- for instance, the weather. Most people are very understanding of the fact that flights were cancelled or delayed because of this, but members of the UA were short with customers, making unprofessional facial expressions at people who were stressed out because they were trying to reach their destinations, and some staff was even ignoring customers in a long line to have personal conversations with one another or texting on their cell phone."
Pros: "Seating arrangement"
Cons: "The delay and the worry of the door condition"
Pros: "On time, quick on and off. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very small carry-on baggage capacity. Had to surrender in jetway."
Pros: "The bar tender nice service the flights excelent"
Cons: "The service"
