Pros: "Service and crew were much friendlier coming back from Rio."
Cons: "Food was terrible, seat as uncomfortable."
Cons: "One crew is rude while I was ordering food while she is delivering the beverage after the order time. She simply told me they don't have what I want to order and leave. After 5 mins, I pushed the service button and nobody responded. After half hour, I ordered the food from another crew passed by. After I landed, they suppose to return my stroller set at the airplane gate. But they said it is not there, ask us to wait at the airport gate. We walked outside and they broadcasted again, I didn't hear very clearly but followed most parents to walk out. We wait at the baggage claim for almost 1 hour and finally, the baggage crew came back to the gate and found our stroller."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Moline was delayed over 3 hours due to an engine issue. We were delayed to board, then once we were boarded, we sat on a cold airplane for over 30 minutes in sub-zero temperatures in Chicago. Maintenance was called to start the engines externally but the starter machine wouldn't work. Finally, we were made to de-plane. We sat for over 30 minutes waiting on information. Never received meal vouchers. No snacks or water was given during the wait. The steward was very nice and helpful but the gate agent was horrible. She seemed "inconvenienced" when you went to ask her questions."

Cons: "The staff on board not nice Pilot with no experience try to land the plane with no success 2 time"
Pros: "Flight was on time both leaving and arriving"

Error messages include “service is not available st this time” and “unable to connect to server - wait a few minutes and refresh browser.” Since in seat video is very limited, this can make for a long flight."
Pros: "Everyone involved in making sure that everyone's travel EXPerience was superior; is to be given high praise."
Pros: "A United employee working at the boarding gate who's name was Amy, (I don't know her last name) really did shine in her efforts to assist in getting my luggage and I reunited. Thanks again, Amy!"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "That no one told me about the mandatory $25 luggage fee even for a carry-on bag. Very dissatisfied."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and initial Customer Service Representative was not helpful at all."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "Everything went well with United at LAX. Baggage check-in and boarding were very easy. Interesting and fun entertainment options made the flight go extremely fast. Crew was very polite and accommodating."
Cons: "Leg room seems to be getting smaller and smaller in economy class; could barely move in my window seat."

Cons: "And my boarding group status was downgraded to 5. Consequently bins were so full my smallish roll on was taken and checked through. Not what I would have liked."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. We sat on the Tarmac for over an hour, very limited information. Flight attendants were asked for ETA several times in flight and never gave any information to passengers. At one point saw them taking selfies in the front of the plane service area. Worst service I've ever had in a flight"
Pros: "Wick & on the!"
Cons: "The one tee member kept repeating things that had been said on the intercom & then announced the wrong time when we landed. She seemed quite distracted."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled without any explanation. It took 4 hours to get bags to go to a hotel and several hours trying to rebook for next day"
Pros: "I liked everything overall Service Attention Boarding Crew Food, snacks and drinks"
Cons: "Price should include WiFi or at least mention it at ticket purchase so that WiFi service can be purchased. Some trips are budget based and any extra expenditures may unbalance a vacation. I don't mind paying upfront when purchasing tickets but having my wife look at me while I'm about to purchase WiFi for the trip made me uneasy. Thanks"

Pros: "There was a medical emergency on board and the crew, especially the African American stewardess is to be commended for her (their) responsiveness. The flight was pleasant, however I could not give an excellent rating. To give an excellent rating would meant his flight or airline stood out above all others."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "I liked crew as they treated me as good customer, thank you!"
Cons: "Their snack food I dont like it and little delayed"
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats in a completely full flight. My seat didn't really lean back. The man next to me kept spilling over into my space. Terrible flight, especially for a red-eye."
Cons: "The delays and plane changes started the night before, and continued throughout the day. All were listed as "Operations issues". When I arrived for the flight, it was delayed about 30 min. When boarding time approached, another delay and no plane in sight. When the other plane finally arrived almost an hour after our scheduled departure, we were told it would be a quick boarding. People started waiting in line, but no passengers were getting off the arrival. After a short time, the announced they were having problems with the luggage. After about 30 min of waiting, the flight was finally cancelled due to "weather", even though you could see other flights taking off. I'm sure it had nothing to do with our arrival airport being closed for the night by the time we would have arrived. Thanks United for the $55 cab ride. Every trip in the last year on United has either had a delayed or cancelled flight!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice."
