I would rather hop on a 15-30min flight than go through the hassle of renting a car. BUT the flight did get canceled, the next flight was completely booked and the next flight out after that was at NIGHT. I arrived in Chicago in the morning. The gate agent told us all to head to United customer service. There I received RUDE, poor excuse of a "service" only to be told they don't give refunds at the counter as we were told by the gate agent. So do that on your own time. THEN I had to buy my bus ticket and spend 1.5-2hrs on top of already waiting 1.5hrs for the flight that got canceled. HORRIBLE. Will never fly United again. Did i mention upon my arrival home I found out American was WIDE open seat wise to chicago?? And no one checked for me!"

Pros: "How helpful the flight attendants were. And how they didn't disturb me while I slept."
Cons: "How there wasn't much elbow room for the person sitting in the middle seat."
Cons: "The flight was canceled with no explanation or an offer to reschedule. The next flight available was tomorrow afternoon which was not acceptable. When I asked customer service about a refund I was told to go to the website, but it was not guaranteed. Highly disappointed."

I begged not to have to check because I was flying to Nicaragua and was worried my only bag would get lost. I was right -- it did not arrive in Nicaragua until the next day. We sat on runway for 45 minutes before departure so United could fix BOTH sets of the plane's wings lights. Why did they not discover that at any time BEFORE we all boarded or while we were boarding -- NOT first when deciding to pull away from gate. Delay caused many to miss connections."
Pros: "Smiling faces, packed plane, good atmosphere... I slept all the way."

Pros: "Another set of employees rebooked us to a near city right away at no charge."
Cons: "How they closed the door to the Jet way when I was 5-8 steps away and would not open it when I knocked. To be clear, I'm not speaking of the door to the plane, just the jetway. We were kindly and quickly rerouted from Milwaukee to Chicago and told to go to Milwaukee to pick up your luggage as soon as we arrive in Chicago. When we attempted to pick up our luggage there was no one from Frontier at the airport, no one. When I called Frontier they told me toy return the next day. We returned the next morning and again no one was there. After two hours of waiting airport operations had to open the door for me to get my luggage. At the very least, they could ask a neighboring airline permission to access Frontier's baggage storage."
