Pros: "The crew were super! Extremely attentive and always gracious."
Pros: "Slept the entire flight"
Cons: "The plane was smaller so there wasn't a lot of space"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, but not terribly attentive. Chicken option for dinner was too spicy and no warning about it or I would have chosen something else."
Cons: "We were being bumped around constantly all night. I’m sure there is a reason the pilot didn’t change path or altitude, but it made sleeping impossible."
Cons: "Flight late for 2 hours and poor assistance"
Pros: "Free movies/TV"
Cons: "A pancake sized hole was burned into my luggage destroying my clothing, toiletries and computer. United Airlines Baggage Services has directed me to purchase replacements for the items destroyed and submit receipts. However, they are maintaining they will NOT replace my laptop which was destroyed. It will cost over $1000 to replace the laptop alone."
Pros: "The staff was amazing made you feel really confident!"
Cons: "Boarding was horrific I paid for insurance my seat was in the middle of 2 HUGE guys and I'm 6'4...I thought my insurance would give me some kind of courtesy boarding/seating!"
Pros: "The seating was comfortable. On the Chicago keg I was seated in the middle and was not stuck with people who were too big for the seat. I noticed there was an overweight person in first class. Does United have strict policies on size?"
Cons: "Just the fourth seating group had trouble finding a place for my roller board carry on."
Cons: "It was a mess. 5 hour delay. No re-booking. A complete sh*t show. No way to change this thing, as you guys are peddling overpriced consolidator tickets. A mess. Will probably NEVER book via KaiYak again. Horrible."
Cons: "We arrived at the Newark Airport 3 hours before our flight, arrived at our gate, as designated, 45 minutes before boarding. Nowhere around the gate, on any monitors, did we see our flight number posted. Three airline attendants, at three different desks, at our gate were all talking at the same time announcing flights. I heard our flight # announced once. My husband asked one of the attendants about our flight and they said it was delayed an hour. That was BS. We nearly missed our flight because it was boarding at that time."
Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"
Pros: "We got my wife on a plane home in under four hours."
Cons: "United decided to bump some of their glorified bus drivers ahead of me on standby so I had to wait a full four hours in O'Hare listening to some doichebag from LA try to entertain folks at the Goose Island bar with his stories about selling franchises."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy. The window was had a coating a head grease and dirt. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Flight attendant on first flight rude overall to all passengers, second flight they were good. Not one complimentary television station."
Pros: "Economy plus is comfortable, crew was friendly, free wifi and entertainment options via United's app is a plus"
Cons: "Boarding process could be better, gate staff not so friendly"
Cons: "Plane was small and cramped. So small you could not get a carry - on in the overhead bin. Also I did not receive an electronic scan to get on the plane. Wasn't I supposed to get one ?"

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Gate staff and flight staff were brusque and rude."
Pros: "Even though I was on connecting flights and weather sounded like it might interfere, that was not the case. Each flight went smoothly and easily. It was a fantastic travel day."
Pros: "United needs to get there entertainment figured out because it does not work right. Out of 5 flights in the last week only got to watch TV once. Same way when I flew in January. We pay enough money to fly at least the extras could be worth it. Everything else was fine"
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "No wifi on plane, unable to use the United app."
Pros: "Quick flight got in earlier than scheduled, but smooth flight"

Pros: "Got home safe"

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Cold service, playing taxi around Chicago for 45 minutes and arriving late, taking off from Chicago and boarding late, Geo Metro style cabin."
Cons: "I have told the steward but she can't do anything about it, since it is technical problem."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment. United tells u when u get on the flight the inflight entertainment is not working , the flight time is 7hrs which I messed up and the attendants have no remorse"
Pros: "Efficient Boarding"
Cons: "No in seat Video. Free entertainment promised did not work on my laptop."
Pros: "Even though it was a long miserable flight with no entertainment at least the crew attempted to move me to another seat the plane was full so it was either stay where I was or go to a middle seat"

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Had several delays also a mechanical issue, I've had the same problem a few other times with United in the past, most likely not booking a flight with them again."
Cons: "Delayed and we missed our connecting flight. The accommodations did not make up for the time missed."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "That u load the plane assistance backard,loading goes much faster if you start @the back of the plane,& myself I carry only a shoulder bag only ,all the time. U put me @ the back of the plane 90% of the time which means I have to wait for the people that are moving their whole house,making me miss my schedule, I have to spend night @ airport for next schedule."
Pros: "The attendant was very gracious and caring. Kudos to the pilots. They handled the aircraft very well under questionable winter weather even for the great lakes region."
Cons: "Had a three hour wait for an aircraft. The wait was for a flight to come in form Ottawa. There seemed to be plenty of other aircraft sitting around O'Hara not being used. Also the deicing process can use some much needed review. Having to wait over an hour for a deice unit to come to the aircraft is just way inefficient and I would think more costly to the company. It is certainly irritating to your customers who have just spent three, maybe five or more hours in a crappy air terminal waiting to get the heck out and on their way home."
Cons: "Sat next to a very large man with injured shoulder whichave has five pens in it"
Cons: "Apparently United is the only airline that can't figure out how to upload TSA-pre KTNs onto boarding passes. I went to the SFO United customer service desk and they rambled through a few minutes of excuses before even looking at their system to identify possible problems. She even stated that United wouldn't comply with the federal Homeland Security program unless passengers paid for it... Which sounded like she was asking for a bribe. That can't possibly be legal and United should be ashamed and this policy made public."
