Pros: "Very new plane arrived on time no problems"
Cons: "Nothing everything was great"
Pros: "Airline crew did everything to keep us comfortable during the flight"
Cons: "They boarded us in spite of the fact that the flight had been delayed 40 minutes. We were all getting alerts on our phones but were told to disregard it and board anyway. We then had to sit on the runway for 40+ minutes until we could take off. Since we were traveling with two small children, it would have been preferable to spend those extra 40 minutes in the terminal rather than on the plane."

Cons: "Tiny dirty old smelly plane. Freezing cold. No blankets. Flight was also an hour late. No food."
Pros: "Very nice flight. Comfortable as well. Courteous and attentive crew."
Cons: "The food was awful if you didn't like curry or cheese (my husband and son didn't eat and it was a 9 hour flight). The landing was aborted after the wheels were on the ground. We came down way too fast and hard, and had to take off again and ascend very quickly. Circled an additional 25 mins before landing again."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Seats were roomy"
Cons: "After the entire flight was boarded & ready to go the plane had a mechanical issue before take off. Had to sit on the plan for 90 minutes before we were allowed to exit the plane. No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special. United staff where nice to make the best of the situation."
Pros: "The customer service was good. Smooth flight, no delays!"
Cons: "A couple planes I got on were old and very small. The WiFi was difficult to use."
Pros: "Without a doubt, I will continue to fly United exclusively."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "My first flight leg was delayed 2 hrs 15 mins because of "air traffic control conditions". I was told that I would make my connection, so I took the delayed first leg, and when I arrived in Denver for my 2nd leg. Was informed that my connection had already left the gate & I had to spend an awful night at the airport when I could've just stayed in Durango on a nice soft bed at my friends house. Wish I would've had an honest assessment of my flight plans because my choice would've been different."
Pros: "Apart from the poor attitude of the lady in Denver the rest went fine."
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely welcoming and captain ensured plenty of updates. Even arrived early!"
Cons: "There was a "software" problem but they boarded all passengers anyway then made us deboard and get on a spare plane, which was fortunate, but I missed my connecting flight in Denver. What's up with the software in the first place? United staff in Denver were very helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and comfortable. Flight attendants were kind and courteous."
Cons: "The speaker system was a little loud when announcements were made."
Pros: "Got their early."
Cons: "Took an extra 20 minutes to get our luggage as it came after everyone else's, of course."
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: "Generous attendants"
Cons: "United organized boarding by zones (1, 2, 3, 4) where 1 is in the front of the aircraft (business) and 4 is at the back. While I appreciate that business travelers should have priority boarding, the order of coach is from front to back. It would be beneficial to begin coach boarding from the back to the front to reduce the traffic on the aisles."
Pros: "Did a good job of keeping us hydrated during the flight"
Cons: "The seltzer water is plain not lemon flavored as advertised in the magazine"
Cons: "I understand that many things in aviation are unpredictable, but the flight did arrive late and then once boarding was completed we then waited in the plane for an hour before takeoff as not everything was completed for the plane to be able to leave."
Pros: "The staff was always very helpful. I carry a saxophone and everyone was always very open to accommodating me, which I really appreciate! Also, great legroom, great pilots, positive attitude."
Cons: "The added fees for food and beverage were a little tough. I would understand if the flights were shorter, however we had several-hour delays in a time period from lunch through the middle of the night, and were not offered any sort of voucher or food item. Then my bag got lost (which I understand with the weather issues that caused delays), but it left me in a city with no clothes, very hungry, in an hour past public transportation hours. Which is not THEIR problem, but I would have definitely appreciated some assistance of some sort."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and was on time."
Cons: "The personnel at the STA check were not very friendly."
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Pros: "I like to get home on time"
Cons: "Plane had to return to Chicago for mechanical issues"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "I never got to make the flight. I was unable to take the flight because it was cancelled by United without my consent. I still needed the flight too. I'll never use priceline or United airlines for travel EVER again, and I'll be sure to spread the word. No matter who I talked to, I was blamed for the problem. I've never had a bigger waste of money. $550+"
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "Arrived late"
Pros: "The staff were great; despite maintenance issues they strived to keep updates shared as best as possible. Overall a good experience. Would have preferred to have been given a more definitive timeline rather than continual 10-15 minute late notices. In any event it was a comfortable flight with professional staff."
Pros: "Even though i wasn't able to choose my own seat I was given a fairly good seat near the front of economy"
Cons: "The entertainment system was lacking compared to the system on the Lufthansa flight from Riyadh. The touch screen wasn't easy to manipulate and the choice of movies wasn't the same. I know it was united coming to Chicago but the actual Lufthansa airline flight exceeded expectations over united by far!"
Cons: "My flight was super late and due to delays I missed my second flight"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Flight was completely full so I was stuck in a middle seat. The seat felt small and cramped, so was unable to sleep at all on the overnight flight. There was no in-seat entertainment (although I could have watched stuff on my phone, if I had previously installed the united app, and had sufficient battery)."
Pros: "We landed."
Cons: "I sat in 3A. Almost every passenger getting onboard hit me with his or her bag. The guy across the aisle stepped on my foot. There simply was not enough room for people to move in the aisle."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the crew was there and from du range to denver."
Cons: "My flight from Philadelphia to Denver was horrible. My flight was 30 min late which made my connecting flight impossible. This made a terrible start to my trip. I had a show to attend which I never made it to and ruined my coworkers plans. Went to uniteds customer service for help and the counter lady was so unhelpful and did not show any concerns for my delay."
Pros: "Crew again was fantastic"
Cons: "Increase the length of your seatbelts"
Cons: "The fact I had to purchase an entertainment package when I didnt previous flights. I felt as if the airline was takeoff advantage of a technical glitch."
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Flight attendants nice and friendly"
Cons: "Upon landing we sat for 45+ min on the Tarmac waiting for a gate. Flight was an hour in total longer."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "Our flight was leaving very late, but we were able to rebook on an American flight that left a few hours later from Denver so we didn't miss our connection."
Cons: "It was verrrrry cold on the planes!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Pros: "The nonstop overnight flight was very good. We will for sure choose that again. Much better then daytime with stops"
Cons: "We didn't use food or entertainment, but rating option didn't give that, so it wasn't bad just not used"
Pros: "Flight attendants were sweet everything went smoothly."
Cons: "unloading was a bit difficult in such a tiny space; but it is a small plane ."
