Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights."

Hate the system where you have to pay $30-$95 additionally to choose your seats before check in, just doesn't seem fair when the tickets are already crazy expemsive and you're paying for your luggage as well... if you don't pay extra, you (we) end up sitting across from the restroom for six hours of in and out excitement."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Pros: "The crew was always very warming and assisting. Everything was a breeze."
Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Aircraft is small, boarding is a mad dash to the plane"
Cons: "I don't know if I need to contact american airlines directly or what. But this is the 3rd flight that has been delayed with no reason given or for whatever the reason was tonight. Its obsurd. I booked a flight on Alaska Airlines specifically because american airlines had the issue of delays. Then come to find out, the flight WASN'T on Alaska...but its affiliate. It would be really nice to get some answers."

Cons: "What poor services all round. The check in staff where on the phone or talk to themselves. No one even spoke to me at checkin. Then the boarding staff were so rude, they act like they own the plane and they are god. They would not answer anyone questions and just pointed at the screen. The airplane staff hello at least. But the food very so bad, even easyjet has better food. Also their understanding for the english was so poor but the air stewardess told me " we speak American" !!!!"

Cons: "Softer landing"
Pros: "The crew were pretty good. The entertainment system and selection of movies were superb. Even though they were the same plane/airline this plane offered more leg room than our previous flight."
Cons: "Limited choice from the beverage cart. Our group just doesn’t care for Coke products. But that seems more like a preference issue, so take it for what it’s worth."

Cons: "Drink service was later in the flight."
Pros: "Price, plane interior lighting, comfy seats, large entertainment options"

Pros: "We landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Connecting United flight was late due to us waiting for a gate for almost an hour. As a result we had to run to the gate to make the Tokyo flight. On boarding, staff were less than helpful in finding spaces for our luggage etc."
Pros: "Clean, good crew, not too cramped."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable on the upright position. It would be nice to have some complementary food on a long haul. Even air Dolomiti on a 1 and a half hour flight offers better than... pretzels!"
Pros: "Crew was responsive to an engine circuit breaker issue while taxiing and returned to the gate to have it addressed. Took off two hours late, but secure in the knowledge that the problem was not a flight safety issue. Kudos to the crew."
Cons: "The day after my flight I received an emailed receipt of the the customer in front of me of her lunch order, I’m sure it was an honest mistake but to me paying attention to details like that is very important. There was no personal information on the receipt, I was just wondering on how it was emailed to me instead of her."
Pros: "The service was excellent! The crew was happy and accommodating."
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!"
Cons: "One hour on tarmac."
Pros: "I'm sure this flight would have been fine if it wasn't missed due to previous maintenance delays on my first flight causing a catastrophic snowball to my entire trip."
Cons: "I like that they had freer media for us to see and wifi abalibl"
Pros: "No problem boarding. Had no issue with overhead storage. Crew waa great, helpful, and friendly."

Pros: "Same as above (for both flights"
Cons: "Same as above (for both flights"
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Pros: "Flight attendants are nice. I picked one of the seats at the end so plenty leg room."
Cons: "OK, United, I understand and fully support "no more seat monitor" policy to reduce costs (even though it seems very backward); however, there's one problem--if you still want to enjoy onboard entertainments, you need to download the United application above 10,000 feet where you can never find your 4G connection. Oh wait, but there's still Wi-Fi service, right? Sure, if you are willing to pay $17 just to download application!! United, I understand how you want to make little money out of a customer's pocket, but this is not how you should do it. You should at least allow internet connection before departure or let the customer aware they need to download application beforehand."
Cons: "Delayed for over 3 hours due to jetbridge being stuck to plane. Basically 2 5.5 hours have taken me 2 full days instead of one"
Cons: "Cramped. Freezing on flight"
Pros: "Wide ranges of shows to watch"
Cons: "one of the crew members was so rude to me, confusing me and changed my seat three times in less than 15min... I also had a bite of the pancake and I instantly threw it up. There was also a very long delay and my chair would not lean back for 10+hrs. The first seat I sat on did not have a working earphone plug and the next seat I was scolded for being moved there EVEN THOUGH A CREW MEMBER SEATED ME THERE. I then proceeded to change to another seat."
Cons: "Flight got delayed 10 hours and united airlines would do absolutely nothing to accommodate or help out situation in any way"
Cons: "See above."
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."
Cons: "I had a seat that had a monitor that was steaming code in front of me for 6 hours. It couldn't even be turned off. The only thing the crew offered was a piece of cardboard to cover it up. "If you download the United app you can pay to stream movies." I hate United and I don't use that word often. I would much rather give praises than complaints. Pay extra for food, entertainment, emergency isle seats... not that the tickets didn't already cost me a fortune. Crew even gave me grief about hanging up my suit!?! I flew to Thailand recently for less than flying to Texas, and everything was included, comfortable, and FRIENDLY. NOT UNITED."
Pros: "The food was great"
Cons: "Boarding was slow"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. They offered refreshments when we needed."
Pros: "Not much on this flight."
Cons: "I wanted juice or soda and for one hour waiting for the plane to be fixed and then the one hour flight, all we got offered was water. And it tasted like tap water. They did offer free TV while flying but I had movies on my Kindle."
Pros: "Gate and customer service agents were kind."
Cons: "Gate agent and computer decided to give standby seating to terminal traveling customers after a weather delay pushed our original flight past my connecting flights departure. E.g. The airline could have let me make my connection, since other guests, who had no connections to make and were also stand by. In addition, customer service refused to offer a hotel voucher, instead offering a third-party 'wholesale price' coupon to participating hotels. The discounted price is more than the flight! Perhaps United could acknowledge the priority conflict of causing overnight delays and offer a flight voucher..."
Pros: "3 hous of waiting after our original departure time. Gave us free tv though so that's nice."
Pros: "Get to Denver, they tell me I don't have a seat, they asked me if I wanted to fly out the next day because they over booked met three other people who had been there for 10hrs because they did the same thing to them! One girl told me they told her it was because we paid less then other people! A nice couple stayed so I could come home. I was pissed! My daughter flew into Houston, the flight was late getting in to LA, by two hrs, missed her connecting flight to San Luis Obispo, her sister had to drive down 4hrs to pick her up and drive back because she had work! Not happy!!!!"
Pros: "On time and got all our luggage"
Cons: "Took a while to offload luggage"
Pros: "The flight was on time, the attendants were nice and my luggage came to pickup quickly."
Pros: "After the 2nd broken plane, they gave everyone $10 food coupon"
Cons: "Three hour delay, two broken planes, but all things considered not too bad."
Pros: "Much better leg room on the upgrade. Thanks for the blanket too."
Cons: "And, on a 5.5 hour flight the flight attendants only came down the aisle one time to offer drinks or snacks. The seat was sort of dumpy, my charger wouldn't stay plugged in and the pocket on the seat in front of me was ripped."
Pros: "Very helpful crew, comfortable flight I was alone and everyone was helpful all around"
Pros: "I got all my steps I while waited. Was rebooked on an American airplane for my connection on Chicago"
Cons: "Over a 3 hr delay in leaving Flont"
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork, the announcements, the boarding, the take off, the landing and the on time arrival. This trip was an example of how things should go."
Pros: "I didn't freeze! We got a little snack thing. The center seat wasn't taken so I had more room. Even tho it was delayed a bit to wait for connecting passengers, I would like to think the same would be done for me, so that was okay."
Pros: "Provided blankets for snug sleeping"
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"
Cons: "Maintenance should be done especially on minor things like headphone jacks on Long flights passengers pay for those upgrades pretty frustrating when they do not work"
Pros: "Lots of turbulence"
Pros: "The O'Hare bathrooms, which I shaved in? Everything else about the flights and the airports were awful, like of course"
Cons: "The crew wasn't the friendliest. Kind of a buzz kill when you're en route to Kauai."
Pros: "Not much positive on this flight other than I was headed home. I had a decent seat but I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "This review is for another flight that paid for the same day as this flight from LA to Lihue. The actual flight for this review is a different flight that I paid to get my friend on so could get home. He pretty much had an equally bad experience. The following is my review from my flight from San Diego to Lihue, through San Fransisco. I paid for both flights but wasn't offered the opportunity to submit a review for the flight I was on so I'm taking this opportunity now to do so. I was on a flight home after losing one of my best friends. The flight attendant was extremely rude, making me feel like she was going out of her way to get me a drink of water and never returned to offer food after they missed me when they went down the isle. The gentleman attending to the first class passengers was beyond rude to anyone attempting to use the lavatory near the first class section as if people were supposed to know that it was only available to first class passengers. I was never offered food and myself and other passengers repeatedly ignored by our flight attendant. The entire flight was freezing cold and the air blowing so loud that I couldn't hear any volume on the movie player I was watching, making that nearly impossible as well. I landed at my destination feeling cold and hungry with a pretty bad taste in my mouth towards United Airlines. I don't normally fly United but due to the untimely hospitalization of one of my best friends and having to fly on such short notice, it was all that was available. I used to be a united mileage member but my points expired and became useless to me, living in Hawaii with very few flights in and out of the state several years ago. They seem to have added flights since then but other airlines have won my loyalty since then. I was hoping for a better experience as I remember having better experiences flying United. After this recent experience, I'm not sure that I will be flying United again, especially given the price of fares and what you get for what you pay. You'd think the staff would be more welcoming knowing that people pay so much to fly and then pay for everything else once on the plane. (A comfortable seat, food, drink, etc)."
Cons: "I didn't like the 5 hour delay... Neither did any other United customer as it seemed like every single flight was delayed to everywhere for only united airlines"
