Must be the last year on lease"
Cons: "On the red eye from Anchorage to LAX in Business class the A321 was ok as far as comfort.

Pros: "All prompt boarding smooth flight early arrival"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"
Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."
Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."
Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Pros: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Cons: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
Pros: "The flights were smooth and easy."
Cons: "Due to the crew being late, my second flight was delayed and hour and a half."
Pros: "I booked business, so not too bad."
Cons: "I don't know why United doesn't take the 8 hr flight to Honolulu as serious as they do international flights. The business class was like being in Priorty seats with food and reclining. I was in the middle seat of 4 seats. still a crowed feeling. I would not waste my money on business on that flight"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 5 hrs"
Pros: "Food was good but had to purchase on an 11 hour flight."
Cons: "Delays.... The crew didn't know our gate was changed until we told him. Some of the crew were very rude."
Pros: "I loved the flight, the service, and the whole experience."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. That's the best part."
Cons: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."
Pros: "I had the distinct pleasure of flying in an aisle seat in the back of the plane with an empty middle seat. I quickly and effectively commandeered the middle screen (for flight information) and underseat storage to provide extra leg room in front of me. The flight attendants on my side of the plane were all friendly and wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment lacked a little... entertainment. There was a simingly limited selection of films and those available were mostly, to be frank, terrible. The food, not terrible, was simply par for an airline. There was also a rather heated discussion between a flight attendant and a passenger on the opposite side of the plane from me."
Pros: "Arriving alive"
Cons: "Comfort, accessible media, cost"
Pros: "Fell asleep right as the plane took off and was not disturbed by anybody for the duration of the flight. As a result I do not know whether food and drinks were served and their quality."
Cons: "Bag was lost Inefficient check in employee Poorly trained TSA employees Long wait before take off Very uncomfortable and crammed seat"
Pros: "The food being offer was good"
Cons: "The experience as a whole was rather disappointing"
Pros: "The crew was good. Direct with instructions and efficient."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, I should not have to pay extra for the little TV, when other carriers are offering this in-flight entertainment for free. Nickel and dime-ing customers does not bring loyalty. I'll be returning to flying almost exclusively on Delta."
Cons: "I was horribly cramped next to two passengers who used half my seat. Crew could see this and did nothing to help. There was no way to turn off the entertainment"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay due to "wifi" issue caused us to miss our connecting flight to Kona, Hawaii! We thought it would be a quicker and shorter flight buying a direct flight from United from IAD to HNL then to Kona, but we were wrong! We are upset and disappointed that it caused us a day of our vacation! We will avoid United for future travels!"
Pros: "We had economy plus seats, so I could still feel my legs and didn't have a near panic occurrence. Good news! The dents in my husband's knees from the previous flight are gone! A/C worked great."
Cons: "United flight attendants could use a good Dale Carnegie course. The attendants on our flight exuded "GO AWAY!" Our row mate (aisle) had a broken seat that she paid extra $$ for & she asked to be seated elsewhere. Attendant said there are no more seats. There was at least one seat in first-class; we could see it. She also asked for more pretzels......2 1/2 hours into the flight...the attendant said I gave them out already. One pack of pretzels? I wasn't offered any pretzels at all. And the movie choices....what?!?!?!?! I can't even begin to describe the disappointment that your "selection" of movies caused. This isn't a hop to Hawaii. It's long haul. Oh. And my feelings are still a little hurt I at being subjected to the SMELL of baking chocolate chip cookies that were being served in 1st class. Really? Superman vs Batman, Captain America, Barbershop II, Jungle Book, etc., AND having to smell cookies I can't have? It's just too much to take in on a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Food (chicken) was utterly disgusting. I found the seats rather uncomfortable -- my back was really hurting at the end of the flight and that isn't normal."
Cons: "I had a connection flight to San Francisco and then from there to Honolulu and the flight from Portland to SF got delayed 5 times to up to 4 hours late so I would've missed my second flight from SF to HNL. They couldn't do anything about it so they put me on the next available flight, the next MORNING. So I had to go spend a night in a hotel which I had to pay for and wait for the next flight in the morning the next day. Next day the flight got delayed yet again this time little over 2 hours. So I would've missed the flight from San Francisco do Honolulu yet again. This time they managed to find a little later flight and put me on that but still had to wait at the airports for over 8 hours. Super mad about how United works... Had problems with my boss as well because I was supposed to work the next day but they rescheduled my flight for that day. Really not a pleasant experience..."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight landed safely and was only a few minutes late after delayed departure of 25 minutes."
Cons: "A problem passenger ruined the flight for me and several others. He continually left his seat when the seat belt sign was on. I figured he was back smoking or vaping in the lavatory as he came back smelling strongly of after shave, bit seeing him weave around he must've been drinking. Then he stood in the aisle and poured more after shave down his shirt and outside his shirt. The smell was so strong it gave me a headache and make me sick to my stomach. Then he left his seat and sat behind us somewhere with a woman. A flight attendant told another man to come up and sit where he had been sitting. After the man went to sleep this guy came up and kicked him out of his seat. Then he asked the guy by the windows to switch seats with him which the guy did Kama then he proceeded to make him move several times as he had to get out and get out of his seat looking for something. I'm not sure how these things are handled normally but this guy really ruined for me. Aren't there consequences for ignoring all the rules? I probably won't fly United again."
Pros: "Staff and timeliness of flight."
Cons: "1) Seats barely recline beyond 90 degrees. 2) Food was unimpressive. 3) Paying for cocktails on a long haul flight is absurd. 4) Instructed to "download a ridiculous app" for entertainment. 5) finally downloaded stupid app but didn't have my laptop available as it was in checked baggage so tried to watch a bad movie on my IpHone...??? 6) Outlet to plug my power sources for mobile devices into was not functioning."
Cons: "personal entertainment connection was spotty."
Cons: "How rude the women airline attendants are /the extreme lack of leg room"
Cons: "90 minute delay!!!"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "I enjoyed very little about this experience. The crew was cordial however they lose the ability to perform simple tasks by the long standing protocols and overcrowded flights. Most of the crew are as unhappy as the passengers."
Cons: "The plane hit the brakes while taking off and returned to the gate due to a warning light. We were told nothing other than we needed to wait. They said the fix took 5 minutes but our wait took 2 hours. Not efficient. They rent out tablets for on plane entertainment, unlike every other plane I've ever flown, they make you pay to keep you happy during a 5.5 hour flight. Food was horrible. The seat did not recline and they eradicate every ounce of comfort to overpack the plane. The Captian made little announcements and the one he did make upon decent, started with "please fasten your seat belts, we are 65 miles away from Honolulu but...", I was sure the "light" came back on 30k feet about the pacific and we were going down. Finally - the last announcement from the head stewardess didn't include "Aloah, thank you for flying United". Seems minor but it goes to show they don't care anymore. That's the first time I hadn't heard the welcomed message after my 20th trip to the Islands. After my return flight I vow to never fly United again."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. It was a long flight, so glad that came around in between drink services to offer water."
Cons: "Not that much content on the entertainment device, several movies were only playing in Japanese and no option to change to English. My device kept shutting off at random times despite having full battery."
Pros: "Crew and workers were all pleasant and polite"
Cons: "United knows they can't fly into Orange County after curfew. This was handled terrible. After 4 delays. All weather related we were finally boarded. Yay hope. Not even to our destination. Boarded to LAX. Now we are seated. The announcement pilots won't fly. No. It is illegal for them to fly. Why not tell customers. Don't blame pilots. Also you know the rules why board us. Even if we flew we still needed a two hour ride to SNA. It was sheer luck I called and was told another flight leaving in 8 min at gate 14 ten gates away. My running to catch that flight was not good. I made it panting. Arrived in LAX at 2:00 a m Not my destination. If nothing else people should be compensated by United don't you think?"
Pros: "I had no issues during my flight. Overall, the trip from Tamuning to Honolulu was quite enjoyable."
Pros: "Great entertainment. Most of crew was very nice."
Cons: "Computer problem delay. Then someone closed the door improperly, so back to the gate. Then we needed more fuel. Then we had to wait for "paperwork". Took off 2 hours late all of which was spent sitting on the plane."
Pros: "Nice plane for a small one"
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Pros: "They gave us a blanket"
Cons: "I got to Honolulu past midnight instead of 9:40pm. Because of the delay, I lost my rental car and now it t will cost me 3x more."
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "I couldn't believe that this long flight had NOTHING in the form of entertainment. No wifi to watch on your own device and no inflight entertainment. I was stuck in the middle of 2 people with a baby with nothing to pass the hours. Unbelievable!!!"
Cons: "4 hr delayed departure. fine... better safe than sorry when there's a mechanical problem. BUT-- there was no compensation.. no free drinks, no free food worse: the flight left after lunch but there was only breakfast food (since it had been a morning flight). and THEY RAN OUT OF FOOD FOR SALE. despite the 4 hour delay. we were starving. then... we FINALLY arrive... and wait another full HOUR for the gate to be opened. because it had "timed out" (because we were so late?) and apparently, they have to call someone in from who knows where to unlock the gate... it took an hour! we basically lost a full day of our Hawaiian vacation"
Cons: "There's very little room between sest rows."
Cons: "Very rude lady working at United desk at LAX. I am a veteran and I have very bad anxiety and PTSD and my wife (who is active duty) were split up for the flight so we had asked to be seated next to one another since we had picked our seats online prior to flying. The lady was very rude rolling her eyes saying that there was nothing she could do for us besides us asking people to possibly switch seats even though my spouse had the United app open and showed two seats to upgrade too and she didn't even ask if we wanted to upgrade to be next to each other. At this point I had to take my anxiety medication and as we were taking off one of the flight attendants said we could ask about upgrading but yet the lady at the desk said nothing."
Pros: "service was superb. Our stewardesses were great"
Cons: "The meal was horrible. Never a good idea to serve a breaded dish if the dish will end up soaking the steam and be soggy by the time the passenger gets it. Bread was too hard for the plastic ware to be able to cut through it. Entertainment system was down too."
Cons: "This is an international flight from San Francisco to Manila. Because United has a policy of "meals for purchase" on domestic flights, the Sfo-Hnl and Hnl-Guam legs did not serve meals. Only the Guam-Mnl portion had dinner. The planes on each leg were cramped and old. Seats were old. No in-flight entertainment unless you rented a tablet. The fare cost around $720 which was not really a bargain since other international airlines like China Airlines and Ana were offering fares in the same ballpark fare. I made a mistake booking this flight and by the time I realized it, it was too late. I will never fly UA on international flights if there are other options. Asian airlines have newer planes with more legroom; customer service is better;and in flight entertainment and food offered. I intend to post a blog on travel sites "buyer beware.""
Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "Over 1 hour late. We sat on the plane after boarding all that time. Late for things that should have been done before boarding ( fueling and more food). The movie and TV shows froze and skipped, so we're hard to follow."
Pros: "I had two seats to myself because it was a small flight. I was able to sleep most of the flight"
Pros: "Our attendant Andrea M was a breath of fresh air. Always smiling and attentive to our needs . She was great! Ah, if only all UAL and other US airlines flight attendants were like her. Kudos to her!!!"
Cons: "Spent $13 for Internet but it didn't even work"
Pros: "The Economy Section Flight crew on the LA to Honolulu 2/18/16 flight lived up to UA's advertised flight service Good job - you made a frequent flier want to return to another UA flight soon."
Cons: "I have no complain."
Cons: "Old planes, blanket with hair, no complimentary meals"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin was hot the entire flight. It was a red eye but the lights were kept on bright for most of the flight."
Pros: "I upgraded to first class so the food and service was very good. Loved the super adjustable lay flat seats."
Cons: "Even in first class, it was clear United doesn't care about repairing anything that won't keep the plane from flying. The entertainment console was damaged to the point it wouldn't even fit back together and none of the headphone jacks were operational on an 8 hour flight. We were also understandably delayed by a medical emergency onboard but United saw fit to further inconvenience the entire plane of passengers by searching the cargo hold for the the deplaned passengers luggage long after they were gone, rather than send it back on the next return flight. The crew said the decision came from corporate and clearly thought it was as ridiculous as we did. Given that United was valuing this seat at well over $2k, I think it's reasonable to expect the amenities to be in good repair."
Pros: "The service was much more friendly and polite than the last time I flew united."
Cons: "Cramped seating very high food prices. Electric phone sockets didn't work AGAIN even though the green light was on. Couldn't charge my phone at all..."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over one hour. I had to ask to flight attendant to ask the pilot if they could wave the TV/movie entertainment fees due to the delay with the flight, which was approved. I did not like the fact that I had to ask about that when that offer should had been automatic. In the past, when flying and a delay happens, other airlines like Hawaiian and Delta have waved their entertainment fees. The baggage claim took over 45 minutes to release the flights luggage."
Pros: "On board entertainment did not work but otherwise a good flight."
Pros: "Roomy seats & leg room, free movies, arrived 30min early."
Cons: "That one attendant, that prob should look for another job, she does not enjoy that line of work, just the paycheck. No fault of United: 2 crying babies..."
Pros: "Crew was great entertainment was poor"
