Pros: "Crew cheerful and funny."
Cons: "Seat area dirty with pretzels all over floor."
Pros: "Entertainment options were very good."
Cons: "Basic economy rules are really poor especially for passengers that travel for business every day. On the one hand, the airline tells us we are very important to them by assigning us with special gold privileges and on the other tells us we are not important to them. It is confusing at best."
Pros: "what's there ever to like in United? One things is worse than the other!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour for crew not showing up. contacted customer service 2 times on phone and was promised to get travel voucher in 24-48 hours. Never got that. On 3rd time contact I was asked to email their support I did one week ago and nobody bothered to respond yet. Typical United!"
Pros: "No one was sitting next to me so I had the two seats to myself."
Cons: "The flight took a little longer that it was supposed to."
Pros: "Business class seating, nice crew."
Cons: "Our bags showed up a hour after our flight arrived. They were tagged "abandoned, do not deliver" even though a United person told us no more bags were coming off the flight from Munich. Baggage handling is a weak point in the USA."
Pros: "nothing! entertainment should vd a one alos, not s friendly star system"

Pros: "What I did like was the courtesy that they gave me as a military to go in first in the plane it made me feel that my country really loves me..."
Cons: "Me as a military personnel giving my life and my soldiers for better and safe country I think all Airlines should not charge baggage to any military the only one that does charge is JetBlue sorry to tell you that but that also has to be improved something has to give to us as military to feel proud of our country...."
Cons: "We boarded the plane late, sat on the plane for almost two hours before taking off (because of maintenance issues) and then waited to get to our gate upon landing. This happens to me almost every time I fly United."

Cons: "I carry expensive equipment in my backpack and it's an accepted carry on but doesn't fit in the overhead bin of smaller planes. Can't afford to check it and have damage."
Pros: "The flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "When I went to the gate in Houston to get my boarding pass for my second leg, the lady at the gate counter yelled at me because I didn't know my seat assignment even though I had already explained that I didn't know because I didn't have a boarding pass. On my original booking, I had chosen my seat to be a window, but when they rebooked me they put me in a middle seat even though there was a completely empty row in front of me. Then, to top everything off, they forced me me check my rollerboard carry-on because they said there was no more room on the plane, but when I got on I could see multiple spaces were still available. Another passenger and I were left to wait nearly 5 minutes on the jetway while the gate counter rep went to print our checked luggage tags. I asked the stewardess why I had to check mine even though there was plenty of space, and she said "it's hard to tell sometimes how much room we're going to have left." She also didn't offer any apology. All in all it was a terrible experience. I had to wait unnecessarily at various points of the travel process, had to endure a layover that was more than double what I had planned for, was forced to check my carry-on at the gate, and worst of all I missed a really important meeting. United obviously does not care at all about economy customers. Don't trust this airline! Book on Southwest or JetBlue - they actually care about customer retention!"
Pros: "We flew through some pretty turbulent skies but the pilot did a great job, and I saw that he landed in a strong crosswind when's i looked out the window at SAT, although you couldn't have guessed it from how smooth the landing was."
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
Cons: "It took was too long to get off the plane due to jetway bridge operator not there to do his job. Missed my connection. No drink service. No snack."
