Pros: "The business seats were comfortable & our service excellent"
Pros: "I was able to change my seat."
Cons: "Five hour delay, no entertainment, no food... A really poor experience."
Pros: "Staff found us two seats together. Food was good."
Cons: "Email telling us about pre airport arrival check in and seat selection."
Cons: "The food was the worst. The setup was old. The staff was indifferent"
Cons: "we had a 9 hour delay"
Cons: "i ordered a vegetarian meal and didn't get one."
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "The staff and crew were excellent"
Cons: "Legroom was far too tight, by at least an inch. Entertainment such as recent movies, available on other airlines for free, was available only for pay."
Pros: "boarding was fast, flight was on time, nice crew"
Cons: "pretty basic creature comforts, seats so so"
Pros: "We landed in NYC -- although it was first announced as Dulles."
Cons: "This flight was on Canadian Air under the auspices of United. I was not allowed into the United Club lounge despite the fact that I had business class ticket. I was informed that a business class ticket isn't sufficient for using the lounge when flying domestic. It is only good when flying international. They call that customer service. I generally avoid domestic airlines because of the customer service. The flight attendants were not happy to serve you. It's a small flight but they didn't even offer a snack -- you had to ask for it. And then they brought over a small basket with nuts, chips, candy bars, and a muffin. I took a muffin and it stuck to the roof of my mouth -- very poor quality. When I asked for a snack the flight attendant replied cocktail or soft drink never saying whether or not a snack was available.. She said this a couple of times before I could repeat that I wanted a snack to which she replied you want something to drink with that. I've been on many short flights in Asia and they will deliver a full meal and you don't have to ask for it. There was no entertainment but United did send an email explaining how I could purchase entertainment to play on my own device."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Hostess was super loud repeated destination at least 100 times."
Cons: "Pilot was calm and understanding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by five hours due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Little information was provided by United. Frustrating experience."
Pros: "The flight attendants, service and comfort were very good."
Cons: "Because of plane maintenance the flight was 4 hours late. I stood in line for two hours to get my flight changed since I missed my connection in Frankfort, and never got it changed. I got to Frankfort and stood in 3 more lines to get on standby. I’m hoping to get to Naples before the last ferry to Capri in order to make my sister’s wedding."
Pros: "Quick flight, faster than schedule. Flight attendant was good."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room or arm space in the seats on US express jets. If the flight were longer than an hour it would make for an absolutely miserable experience."
Pros: "Got a window seat and had an amazing crew. Everything went smoothly! Dinner and breakfast served!"
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Food appeared stale at times Drinks like fruit juices were given in small amounts like a quarter cup by stewardess Appears that it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies were poor and narrow"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Cons: "We bought this on swiss air with the terms that included free skis. When we arrived at the airport, Unites airlines informed us that skis would be $200 to check. A pretty awful surprise to start our vacation. Perhaps it should be made more clear that the operating airline’s fees with predominant - not the fees we originally agreed to at purchase. United’s planes are awfully old and small."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed our flight. The least they could have done was given us a pass to the lounge to relax considering we came in on a red eye or a lunch voucher. The staff was a bit rude."
Pros: "All of it was good."
Cons: "2 short a trip to serve food"
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Pros: "It was hot...the whole flight"
Cons: "Hot hot hot"
Pros: "Comfortable, no issues."
Cons: "Being jostled by carts and people walking by"
Pros: "Pilot candor"
Cons: "In flight service"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and staff was courteous."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Cons: "- The flight out of IAD was overbooked and left late. - My hand luggage was taken from me with promise of delivery at final destination - Staff in EWR was unhelpful and just short of rude - My luggage did not make the connection at EWR - There was no United staff in PoS to take my report of lost luggage -"
Pros: "On time flight. And the upgrade was wonderful"
Cons: "Because of missed connection I had to go from Dulles to Reagan airport"
Pros: "I liked that I finally made it home despite all the drama."
Cons: "I didn't like that I booked a flight nearly 2 months ago to only find out I didn't have a seat. I do understand its legal but I don't get how you are putting customers first by causing this drama. I understand how that DR felt when your guards ripped him out of his seat. I spent nearly 3 hours trying to find babysitters and alternate rides all while the snotty lady at the desk kept saying "you may not be flying out today but I cant tell you for sure". So to insure the bottom line you overbook then bump people at your leisure? This little game effects many lives above and beyond just the passengers. I don't plan on booking with United ever again. Why would I? There are many other options that take customer service more seriously. I would love to speak to someone higher up in this organization. But, im sure that will never happen."
Pros: "The personal are very amability"
Pros: "The flight was to depart at 8:15 but due to delay only leaving at 3;30. Dissapointed as it took two agents to process a replacement flight (first agent offered a connection for a 1.5h flight only)."
Cons: "More attentive staff willing to help and at the very least, be emphatic."
Cons: "There was a delay after boarding / door closing. We just sat at the gate without explanation so we arrived late in Boston. I assume we were held for some reason by the tower but an update from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "Easy to board and check in, good price"
Cons: "It was extra to check luggage"
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "not to mention non existent entertainment. TV never worked no.map. no interesting info from pilot unlike last pilot we'd had on this flight who'd given us great information on our flight. no apologies. we were told about 50 tvs were out on the flight. the chicken meal was delicious pasta awful (we shared because of that). the couscous salad which lady flight had been super this time was too spicy for us much less if we'd bought a child. if this is the positive ... we got there safely and the boarding was better than sometimes."
Cons: "see above. united which ran this flight more intent on telling you what you can't do than making it a pleasant flight. no entertainment. 75 per cent of food was inedible. will be looking at Ba in future or Virgin despite being United mileage plus members. how about some customer service training?! as a repressed brit living in us I'm not normally a picky passenger. but a smile? sorry the movies aren't working? hi? just the greeting over the intercom makes you feel as if you are an inconvenience. not friendly skies thus time. put off."
Pros: "Flight attendant was extraordinarily kind, especially for the couple sitting next to me with their adorable 7-week old baby."
Cons: "Touch screen broken on TV. I couldn't watch the films I wanted to watch."
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Short flight, the express plane had more leg room than the regular plane."
Cons: "VERY DISORGANIZED in Dulles. Flight was delayed because we were waiting for a pilot?? Then one happens to show up? Sounded a little sketchy..."
Pros: "We arrived 10 minutes early which allowed me to catch connecting ground transport"
Cons: "4 hr delay on the flight, terrible experience never flying with United again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and United offered no reasonable options for returning home that evening."
