She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."

I got to Dallas I was furious complain to customer relations. I at least wanted them to let me in to the admirals club so I could be comfortable for the next four hours. They refuse that but one lady at the customer relations apartment did give me a meal voucher which made me feel a little better."

Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"
Pros: "Service was good. Boarding was easy. Snacks were great."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited. On tv and not much to choose from."
Pros: "Flight okay"
Cons: "Not enough or any choice of food but that is ok asyou really do not need it unless you have not planned well, so it is partly my fault that I felt the shortage of food!"
Pros: "Nice crew and ground staff. With the right credit card (United Explorer or better) boarding is a snap."
Cons: "Lack of personal space is a fact of life for air travel unless one can afford the good seats. Plus, why do I always sit behind a crying, screaming child? I know it's no fun for anyone involved and it's just part of life, but maybe next time I'll be more fortunate. Flying in economy is truly like riding in a very big Greyhound Bus! It beats driving, but not by much. I wish trains were more plentiful and affordable."
Cons: "Not sitting by my wife."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of the entire awful experience. The pilots let people tour the cockpit and the stewards were very accommodating considering their rules and restrictions. With so many delays, we were able to disembark the plane and come and go as we needed till we were able to finally board for takeoff."
Cons: "We all received updates every thirty minutes with a new departure time and each time we were supposed to depart, there was another delay. The first delay was caused by a seat cushion floating device not being on the plane (hour delay right there) and then for the next three and a half hours, we all were constantly being delayed due to rain. The rain was not their fault but had that cushion been properly stocked on the plane, we would have missed the storm and been on our way. A two-hour flight became an eight-hour hell. Not to mention, the plane itself smelled like a seedy bar bathroom, I had to tuck my legs underneath myself because there was absolutely no legroom, and my row mate was a belligerent drunk. Getting home at 5 am Monday morning and going straight to work was not ideal. Would have been nice to be home on the same day that my flight was scheduled."
Cons: "not that it is the fault of the airline, but it was turbulent flight"
Cons: "Boarding by group is ridiculous. Should be back of the plane people after kids & wheelchairs. One small bag of pretzels & a cup of drink. JetBlue gives many choices of snacks & whole can of drink. DirecTv - $7.99, JetBlue is free. We were a party of 3 that picked our seats to be together. Got to the airport & our seats were split up by desk clerk & she didn't even inform us of seat assignment change. She also put 2 of us in the Exit row without informing us. Did not know we were assigned to Exit row until we boarded. Our overhead bins were full with other passengers carryons. This should not be. Why can't passengers use their own overhead bins. Stewardess would not help us, she said find a spot up front, if not you'll have to check carryons. Terrible."
Pros: "The ticket staff. The only thing about the Harlingen airport is that it needs more than a couple of exray machines ....the Valley is woefully behind in staff training and technology. It took forever to get through the short lines...it was too long of a wait."
Cons: "The way that a couple of young AA men who were biligirent, combative and vulgar upset about their seat assignments. I told one of the young men to stop using vulgarity and no way to treat the lady that was doing her job, she continued treating them with courtesy and they kept mumbling under their breath God knows what. So young and already so bitter. They were towering over her and took a confrontational stance...she finally called security. I would not allowed them on the plane. I commend the young lady there in Harlingen."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lost luggage twice!!"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Changed gate to another terminal at the last minute, we made it on time buy with an infant and a toddler taking a bus in a raining day was tough."
Cons: "My trip was for my dad's quadruple bypass surgery and the date was changed. I was told by Price Line I would need to pay $400 as fee to change my trip. I received your email so I contacted United directly and they said there was a $200 fee which could be reimbursed since it was a medical situation."
Pros: "The new aircrafts are great! More room for everything! Love flying United!"
Cons: "The flight attendants aren't always the most friendliest"
Cons: "Took way to long to finish boarding so we were very delayed. This becomes almost a punishment to those who board on time. Also, the flight crew was very loud (I was seated in the last row and they were not at all concerned about the volume of their conversations)."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "If the seats get any closer or smaller they might as well double stack. I am of average height and weight so this is disappointing. The plane was sold out so it's not like UA is hurting"
Pros: "After many flights with United, I am always pleased with the level of customer service. I've only encountered friendly staff from the skycaps to the captains and everyone inbetween. I have never felt like I'm just a warm body filling a plane seat."
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Cons: "I was in the center bulkhead seat with an very oversized man on the aisle seat with a "service dog". It was not a service dog in the sense that it was all over the place--on my feet and in the aisle where it tripped a stewardess more than once and she told him it couldn't be in the aisle. So it pushed over to my seat because the guy was just to big to share his legroom. It shredded napkins the man dropped which a trained dog would not do. it bounced his tray table up causing him to drop his two vodkas. I had to have the stewardess tell him to move his arm and body out of my seat so I could stow my tray for landing. When waiting for my ride outside the dog was off lease and ran into the pickup lanes where the man had to chase him down. A true service dog would never behave like that."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "The airport was really inefficient. The flight itself was good, very smooth landing. No food offered as it was so early in the morning and such a short flight."
Pros: "It was a perfect flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and overall flight was good"
Cons: "Half way through the movie I bought to watch on my screen there was an announcement made by the captain and when my movie came on the sound wouldn't work, the flight attendant just said sometimes that happens and I could try to ask for a refund."
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Cons: "This was the flight from hell. Terrible uncomfortable seats. Could not get the monitor turned off and out of my eyes. Plus we were delayed 4 hours in this crappy airport only to get on a really crappy plane. We were supposed to arrive in Tampa before 10 but wound up getting in like a red eye at 1230 am. Lost out on our ride home and we were so exhausted. I cried most of this flight home 2 1/2 hour flight. Nice staff but crappy plane. I am waiting to get a call to get reimbursed for my loss of time at work and the missed ride home."
Pros: "The cookie was wonderful . I was shaped like a waffle & had caramel inside. The package even instructed how to warm it up over the top of my coffee cup. Also, all the United personnel were great!"
Cons: "Our flight departure was delayed from Tampa to Chicago cause they switched planes. Thank God I didn't miss my connection flight."
Pros: "Entertainment should really be N/A. Landing was a little hard but all in all it was a good flight."
Cons: "Everything was very smooth. No issues."
Cons: "United is a bare bones airline with poor everything. Flight attendants that project ther roll MAINLY as safety technicians, uncomfortable seats (not to mention right packing. Booked this flight when it was listed as Luftstansa, but should have made another choice when I saw it was United."
Pros: "The staff that worked for United was very friendly, professional, and they provided great alternatives due to the fact that the flight was delayed for almost 2 hours. They offered paid lodging and food vouchers if I would've missed my flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 2 hours because there was a maintenance problem. It left me with a five minute layover to get from one gate to the different gate One building away for my connecting flight. The plane also felt very old and definitely needs to be updated or replaced. The plastic panels where the lights and air vents are were slightly damaged to the point where they would dip low from the ceiling. No entertainment was offered."
Pros: "The plane was very clean, modern, and it just felt safe. The crew is excellent, and the flight took less than three hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Boarding was a bit of a problem, there was a miscommunication of who boarded first and who would board next so the boarding process was a bit delayed and disorganized. No entertainment was offered."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Instead of a full can of soda with glass of ice, just recieve a glass with v ice and a bit of soda from the can."
Pros: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Pros: "The crew was mostly friendly. One crew member didn't look too happy to be there, but the rest were quite friendly. The flight took off on time or earlier. We landed and started exiting the plane about 15 minutes earlier than expected which is always good. Even though you had to pay for the entertainment, they did provide one channel without paying and played a couple tv episodes."
Cons: "I don't really have any complaints, it was a good trip."
Pros: "The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. I had just flown in with united from Hawaii and landed 6. 15 am that morning and the employees assisted as I was not familiar with the airport. Will definitely fly united again."
Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"
Cons: "The crew did not seem to enjoy their jobs and can the seats get any more uncomfortable? It really is okay to put some padding in the seat cushions. Is it really necessary to charge for the movies?"
Pros: "Willingness to check carry ons for sold out flights"
Cons: "Choosing of seats process. My traveling partner and I did not get to sit together on way home. Everyone was nice and got a free upgrade but would have been nice to sit together"
Pros: "Getting to Tampa"
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours in the airport and landing in Tampa 3 hours before I had to work... In the MORNING"
