Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."

Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."

Cons: "I am understanding during a flight delay- that's not in the crew's control. But when an employee swears up and down that there is NO chance our bags won't arrive with us and then is WRONG, that is bullshit. Also, I'm a 5'6 woman, and even I had knee pain from the tiny leg room. Imagine how my 6'2 partner felt."

Cons: "I was sat next to two verge large people that smelled and farted before pushback. One finally got up and left to sit somewhere else. The flight to SFO was fine until landing when they missed the landing and took an extra hour and 15 minutes to get to the gate. Passengers were scared for their lives! I was terrified at one point due to the lack of knowledge shared with the cabin!"

Pros: "Flight left on time! No problem in OHare with transferring planes. Next flight also on time."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortably"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind and professional"
Cons: "My nonstop flight was cancelled and I was given a replacement flight with a layover. The cancellation was given with short notice and made for a stressful ride to the airport in oreder to make the new flight time.The layover was supposed to be one hour and ended up being 3 hours. This was very disappointing and exhausting flight. The ride was fine once on board"
Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."
Pros: "The flight from New Jersey to Michigan is short."
Cons: "My flight in January was delayed because mechanical issues with the plane. My flight in February was delayed because of mechanical issues on the plane. Each time we were delayed about the amount of time the actual flight takes. The bathrooms on both planes smelled like a sewer."
Cons: "3 hour delay, water didn't work in bathroom so there was no washing my hands, bathroom old and dirty, seats old, mismatched and dirty. Essentially a terrible flight."
Pros: "Didn't take me long to rebook the flight when it got cancelled due to weather/pilots timing out"
Cons: "The way the whole thing was handled. I ended up flying on the 5th because of the issues with weather. My general problem was with the way the situation was handled. We shouldn't have boarded the plane on the 4th given the fact that the pilots were probably gonna time out anyway. Instead of wasting time, the protocol should've been to begin rebooking everybody to another flight. Just my two cents"
Pros: "I liked I got notified of the delay."
Cons: "The flight kept getting pushed back and no alternatives were provided. I was able to get on a different flight after sitting at the airport for 6 hours because the delay text came after I was just about to the airport. Very inconveniencing for traveling."
Pros: "Getting to Houston fast"
Cons: "The plane was hot! And flight attendant was kinda over it."
Pros: "The stewardess at the back on the plane was very friendly."
Cons: "We changed planes and was 5 hours late"
Pros: "Never will fly United again. First flight left early and we missed it.second re-flight arrived late to get us so we arrived too late to get our next flight. Here we are spending all our money in airports and a cheap motel in Chicago in the rain instead of being in Florida with our family."
Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "I purchase the economy plus seat, hoping to get some sleep. But, the seat did not recline at all! It was so uncomfortable that I could not rest. This was not worth the extra $57 I paid."
Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"
Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."
Pros: "That trip was great to Housto!"
Pros: "Nowadays the gate closes 10 minutes before takeoff which really helps get the plane off on time as we can make connections. Some may not know this and find it frustrating. As a regular traveler I appreciate the move."
Pros: "Fast flight, on-time"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, really dirty looking bathroom"
Cons: "I cancelled it and it appears it didn't really cancel"
Cons: "Our plane was delayed leaving Grand Rapids. Once in Houston there was no gate available causing another 10 minute delay. All bags were required to be checked plane side so once we finally got off the plane it took another 10 minutes to get our bags. Many passengers had tight connections and had to rush to their next flight. My connection was already tight as it was - and I had to go to a completely different terminal very far from where I was to catch it. Five of us were on that flight connecting to San Diego. We finally made it to the gate. The plane was still there but the door was closed so we were not allowed to board. It was the last flight out so we were stranded in Houston overnight. This caused me to miss a very important medical appointment this morning - and to have to cancel client sessions leading to a significant loss of income."
Pros: "United always has the cleanest planes I've been on the offer a lot for what they have."
Cons: "Seats are a little tight. I'm a 6'4" male knees always in the back of a seat makes for an uncomfortable ride. However the seats are the most comfortable one been on in a nation wide travel."
Pros: "Non stop service Friendly, courteous personnel"
Cons: "Cost of the flight"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed, even when we landed our piolet was told to find another gate, when we got to our next flight the sign said boarding but they would not let us on, made us stay in Houston over night"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for an hour before take off due to runway congestion. Even pilot said it was worst he'd seen."
