Pros: "The flight from Honolulu to San Francisco was great! Staff was amazing. Trip was smooth and very enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight from San Francisco to Washington was horrible. Terribly overcrowded and i wasn’t offered a thing until 40 minutes till landing. Then the flight from Washington to Chattanooga was delayed over 2 hours. Which i understand safety comes first but it made for a very long two day trip back from Hawaii."

Cons: "snacks were wimpy"
Pros: "Lufthansa crew and service made the long trip not just bearable,but enjoyable!"
Cons: "The seats are super squeezed together. My daughter and I weigh no more than 130 lbs each and We were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It was operated by United Airlines. Absolutely no food oe entertainment, limited comfort."
Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "It was united airlines not ana airlines"
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."

Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "They were nice. Speak different languages to cover travelers all over the world. But food wasn't that great."

Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."

Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Cons: "No entertainment at all?"
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."

Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2 hours because flight crew wasn't on time for the flight. 8 missed connecting flight and couldn't get another flight for 6 hrs. Positive side they were able to get me another flight on another air line as soon as could. United service dep. was not very helpful and messed up ticketing. Thankfully Alaska air was able to fix thier mistakes."
Cons: "Boarding long lines in Honolulu"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "The plane got almost 1/2 way to SFO before having to return to honolulu bc they didn't have enough fuel. We spent 5 hrs in the air over th pacific for nothing and wasted a while day of our life. No weather issues, no mechanical issues, just they didn't have enough fuel widen it turned out there were strong headwinds."

Pros: "Finding the flight I needed"
Cons: "Found the flight on the United site but couldn't buy it because it wouldn't let me enter my birthday. Called to book over the phone right then and the price was $100 more. Went online to check and the price was 100 suddenly. Went to kayak and they still had the original price. Games like that make choose United last"
Cons: "They called for uniformed services to board priority and when I went to the front with another individual in the Military we were RUDELY told we are not allowed to board unless we are in uniform. I am in the US Coast Guard and we are NOT allowed to fly in uniform. This does not mean I am not a part of the military and I should be treated with respect. I had my ID ready to present and only had one bag. The employee was very rude and told me to go to the end of the line. I will NEVER fly United again. I was wrong to think they took care of military personnel."

Pros: "The staff was really nice! Flight was on time and clerk changed my flight to a more efficient itinerary"
Cons: "I had alittle trouble with the entertainment/technology aspect but eventually got it. I had to download the united app and then went around and around till i got the movie i wanted to watch. It would be good to have an outlet to power the device also."
Pros: "That we got there earlier than expected."
Cons: "The shakedown to buy food or rent a tablet was beyond me. On the way to Honolulu. The young lady next to me had not eaten and it was the third flight on her journey, she had one more flight to go. the pressure from the flight attendant was similar to a very bad used car salesman. Tacky. When the same thing happened to another young person on my flight back, I suspected this is the way United runs its flights. I'm guessing United doesn't treat their employees well. They did just enough to be barely pleasant. I won't fly United again."
Cons: "It was ok. We had to connect to the their wifi in order to watch movies, yet the wifi continued to buffer. So it wasn't the best."
Pros: "Pilots did a good job comforting passengers about duration of flight, weather and safety. Smooth flight for all 8 hours. Sevice was good."
Pros: "I like the o assemblers that rode with me. Two individuals that were extremely kind to me Jim and Ethan Farley that were in the same situation I was in."
Cons: "After a rough start in Honolulu we landed in San Francisco to catch our connecting flight to Chicago but when arriving to the gate before the plane left I along with the other passengers were ignored and given no information as to why we couldn't board the plane. The best they could do was St Louis. Frustrated is an understatement."
Pros: "The flight seemed to go by a lot quicker than I expected"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline back so I could not sleep on my REDEYE flight!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour on take off. Had to wait 1 hour for bags at my destination because the cargo door was stuck."
Cons: "Plane old , no music, no tv, no plug in"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say in this box."
Cons: "7 am flight cancelled and re booked for 4pm flight on standby until then. 4pm flight didn't finish boarding until 5pm. No compensation offered on top of all of that, turbulence was terrible during descent. Been on easily over 100 flights and this was the worst"
