On time and great service.
Cons: "Food and rough flight"
Pros: "The flight attendant was amazing. She was friendly, courteous and went out of her way to make my flight very enjoyable."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Not let babies on planes"
Pros: "I flee economy. Seats are tight and not real comfy but the crew always is helpful with pillows and blanket."
Cons: "The touch screen to watch movies was terrible. The screen did not respond well at all to touch and there was no Sound. Even when attempting to increase volume with volume control, it simply did not work. Even my seat mate attempted it and had no luck. extremely long flight- no entertainment"
Pros: "There was a wheel chair waiting for me at each gate, but in Newark, the attendant took my next boarding pass and dissapeared for about 15 minutes, and left me near the gangway. I was starting to panic. My travel companion was not happy and started to vent. It ewas quite tense for awhile."
Cons: "The seats were cramped. I boarded first because of a broken ankle and a leg boot that turns into a child's car seat when I'm done with it. I was able to work the boot off when I had a leg cramp, but didn't have enough room to put it back on."
Cons: "a 2nd snack for a 5 hr flight would have been nice. Also never heard that they were serving lunch meals to buy, heard the breakfast one!"
Pros: "We didn’t like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable. Far less room than we expected and the seating posture was unbearable. If United continues this poor level of service as it reaches for every last passenger dollar, it will surely lose business. We will seek alternatives from now on."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for more than 4 times, I lost the transport and I will have to spend the night with my brother at the airport."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than 4 times, I lost the transport and I will have to spend the night with my brother at the airport."
Pros: "Not much but it was the best price"
Cons: "The space was so tight I couldn't open the lid to my laptop. I had a small personal item, the gate checked my bag, and there was no room for my feet. I just flew Alaska, delta, American,d Lufthansa recently and none of those airlines were as bad. Like a sardine can. I will avoid United at Ll costs."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave at noon. We were delayed for 2.5 hours due to incoming flights, which were delayed. Finally they told us to board at 4 pm. Once everyone was on board, they told us we "lost" our pilot and we had to get off the plane. Thirty minutes later, they "found" a new pilot and boarded us on the plane. We then sat on the plane for 4 hours because there was a system issue and the pilots didn't have our flight plan. At 8 pm, the pilot got off the plane, and new pilots came aboard. Finally, the plane left at 9:30 pm. We never received food vouchers, water, snacks during the delay. The pilot insisted the last delay was due to a system issue, the crew told us it was because of weather. In the end, I think they were all lying to us and they had no intention of leaving on time and just made excuses. We lost a whole day in Bermuda because of their lies. I will never fly United again."
Cons: "Luggage took >1hr. Flew w Copa - always got bad seats when on United flights"
Cons: "No assistance at all for handicap person, try to ask for help and was told grab a wheelchair and have your family push you or wait till 530 which my flight would be boardiat that time."
Pros: "The pilot informed us about various sights along the way. He did so in a friendly and classy way. Nice landing too."
Pros: "Spacious for economy. Crew was very friendly"
Pros: "Pleased with everything. Flight crew was great!"
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty much what I've come to expect on U.S. airlines--overweight, older, and sloppy in appearance. One of them looked like she had rolled out of bed ten minutes before arriving at the gate. It was the complete antithesis to the flight attendants on Hong Kong Airlines. Ah, for the good old days of air travel. Before the plane ever took off it was announced the the entertainment system on the seat back ahead of those in comfort seats was not working and wouldn't be for the duration of the flight. Having paid an additional $239 for the comfort seat in the hopes of making a 16-hour flight go by a bit faster, this was unconscionable. The food was far inferior to Hong Kong Airlines. In short, it was the trip from hell."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding took forever Not enough overhead space"
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."
Pros: "Nothing, will avoid this airline in the future"
Cons: "Cramped seats, paying for 1 bag when others didnt at gate, ran out of peanuts / pretzels, undewhelming crew. Overall wasre of money, will avoid in the future."
Pros: "Cheap price"
Cons: "No selection of drinks. They offer only wine. Also, no food for almost 10 hrs of the flight. They make you starve for food."
Pros: "The flights were on time, the planes were clean and all staff was great."
Cons: "No wifi or TV on the planes."
Cons: "No outlets or entertainment"
Pros: "Slightly delayed for slow baggage handling at gate"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay, people were nice, but I missed my connection."
Cons: "Even though I have an account with United, and confirmed that I was a vegetarian both online, and on the flight heading to Europe, my meal wasn't entered. It worked out really well because I was sitting close to the front and they had pasta dishes available, but this is not the first time that United and its partners have "lost" or "mishandled" my vegetarian registration. The flight attendant even remarked that sadly, she hears this 'complaint' constantly. The food was good, but there's no reason that my meal request can't stay in the system."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and Captain explained reason as Newark Airport Traffic Control. Further delay was experienced after taxiing and Captain kept us informed. Seats were marginally ok and flight crew was attentive. Had a soda and a small bag of pretzels. Overall, it was an ok flight."
Pros: ""ONLY" 2 delays this time."
Cons: "There were "2" delays."
Cons: "No food on the fligh"
Pros: "Typical United flight."
Cons: "Crew on this flight were so rude and crabby."
Pros: "Assigned seat - delayed because of hot breaks but stayed on tarmac to cool while cooled only about 10 min."
Cons: "Airline stewardess should have suggested mom with young child in lap could move to empty row of seats."
Pros: "The staff were fairly friendly. It was a short easy flight"
Cons: "I didn't care for how tiny the plane was but the pilot definitely knew what he was doing. I still felt safe."
Pros: "great service from flight attendant Angela and Asian crew."
Pros: "The flight was ok."
Cons: "It took a long time to hook up to the jetway once we taxied in to EWR. Pilot even commented that he didn't know what the heck she was doing out there."
Pros: "The lady crew member was so sweet and kind."
Cons: "The first seat on the plane you couldn't see out the window because it was blurred with dirt or something, there was no foot room"
Pros: "Boarding efficient and latest films available. Price excellent."
Cons: "Food ."
Pros: "I enjoyed the timely service and smooth ride."
Cons: "Seats in coach get a little uncomfortable after a few hours."
Pros: "On-time. Reasonable fare. Friendly crew. A/C plug for every seat."
Cons: "No IFE -- free service over wi-fi glitchy and not compatible with Galaxy S7. Baggage slow (~30min) after arrival."
Pros: "On board shows were good."
Cons: "Flight left about 3-3.5 hours late. Add that to the time you have to show up early to the airport and I could've been almost home in my car. We were boarded and left to sit for a long time then the pilot came on saying the mechanic needed more time to look at the tire which might need to be changed. After another 15-20 min sitting, pilot comes on and says we need to get off the plane so the maintenance could be done. Ok I'd rather fly safe than be on time but really? Why doesn't this airline have enough planes that the maintenance can be done when the plane isn't scheduled to fly? So many people missed connections and we ended up getting home so much later than we had expected! Honestly I would rather the airline have emailed saying flight delayed 3 hours so I could have had more time in SF rather than sitting in an airport eating a mediocre airport meal for dinner. They had to have known the tire was almost to the point of changing right? I mean I would hope it's checked each flight. Just all together inconvenient. Like they book all theses flights to make money and yet if they had fewer but didn't make anyone waste the day or night at the airport so they could perform routine maintenance it may be worth an extra few bucks in my book. My time is valuable too, and I don't think I was the only one on the flight who thought so. Maybe United doesn't value anyone else's time other than theirs. Guess this is why we have several airlines to choose from and we will not likely fly United again."
Cons: "Had to wait at gate for a while before disembarking."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The in-seat TV had one channel that was blacked out initially but eventually was viewable, and one channel that worked fine at first but then blacked out for the rest of the flight. As far as options for an 8.5 hour flight? Very poor. 5 movies, 2 of which were multiple years old. The reclining seat seemed over-exaggerated; I had never been on a flight where the seat in front of me came so close to my face. The boarding process was pretty good and streamlined but we still took off about an hour late."
Cons: "The monitor on the seat was malfunctioning even after being reset twice making for a long flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "There was a gentleman that was upset because his seat had been switched around and he called the flight attendants incompetent. He stood by my seat as he waited for the issue to be resolved, that made me feel really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Pros: "The crew were very nice."
Cons: "The flight from Newerk to Tampa was very small and cramped but it was only 3 hours so it was ok."
Pros: "Economy plus room"
Cons: "The flight was not Swiss as I booked it. It was operated by United. It was over 45 minutes late boarding and over 2 hours late leaving. Tone of people were checking in at the gate and thus didn't pay extra for economy plus. There were loud and inappropriate passengers and the flight crew didn't do anything about them. I will avoid United at all costs the next time I travel...truly."
Pros: "Good flight attendants."
Cons: "After cancelled flight due to weather, process for booking hotel handled poorly. United's customer service says they partner with hotel booking agency to get you a discount, but this is either false or unlikely. The price you pay is the same."
