Pros: "The transparency of the pilot as to what was causing all of fhe delays."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay. First, the plane was running late from San Francisco (about 2 hours late). The second delay was due to someone putting way too much fuel in the plane so we had to wait for the excess fuel to be removed. Then the flight attendants ended their shift so we had to wait for another crew that was flying in from Denver. This involved us having to remove all of our things from the overhead bin and get off the plane and re-board about an hour and half later. I was supposed to make it to Dallas at 8:45 and instead didn't make it until after 12:30. It was extremely inconvenient and unpleasant. I have not experienced such a nightmare before with any previous airlines."
Cons: "Still stuck on th tarmac an hour and a half after landing in Dallas because of lightning weather conditions and no ground crew to bring the plane in. Can't they wear a rubber suit or something??"

Cons: "I had to run to customs to pass by then I had to run to luggage check in run to the shuttle to catch to terminal hurry through security and then my luggage is still not found or waiting to land in Dallas from Chicago."
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized. Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines. Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."

They should pay for my first night at my hotel at least."
Cons: "I already wrote what I had to write. 4 delays and then cancellation! Are you kidding me? Had itinerary planned for Friday Night and that got ruined because of United Airlines stupid logistics.

Had to make my own arrangements to complete my trip at significant expense to myself and 0 assistance from Airlines."

Cons: "The flight left Houston late. The check in process was fine, we were asked to check our bags because the flight was full. Once on board and seated the flight attendant came on and said there were 5 bags without the proper tags for people to claim. How could they have improper tags when the person at the gate was giving the tags out? Four bags were claimed and with 1 bag (blue) left the flight attendants asked us 3 more times "whose bag it was?". When no one claimed the bag one more person from United came down the isle holding the bag asking everyone one last time. I heard him say "I was told to do this". At this time 4 more people boarded late. I thought after a certain amount of time boarding would end?"
Pros: "There were hundreds of us in O'Hare during an ice issue. I got out 20 hours later by flying standby on a bigger plane to a city 279 miles from my airport (and my car and luggage). What was edifying during those very tiring 20 hours was this - no one, United or we passengers was rude or disrespectful. Were we (staff and passengers) all worn out and tired and frustrated? You bet. Everyone kept an attitude of acceptance for the 20 hours I was at O'Hare. Very impressive - civilization has a bright future."
Cons: "Under the circumstance, nothing bad."
Cons: "United lost one of our baggage"
