Cons: "The flight was delayed I had to wait for more than an hour"

Pros: "There wasn't anything that stood out that I could say I liked."

Things really aren't clear there for first-timers and much of the staff was acting like I should already know to do a lot of things when there weren't any clearly posted signs saying so.

Cons: "Departure was late, causing me to have to run to the next gate"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "I thought Comcast service was bad. This was the worst. They cancelled my flight at the last minute, then escorted all passengers out of the gate, told us to go through customs then pick up our luggage. And said we had to call to arrange another flight, but the phones just left a message saying to call back in a few days. I was stranded with no phone, no hotel, and no flight home. Three days later, I still cannot get in touch with them."

Cons: "We were walking towards our seats near the end of the aircraft when this flight attendant stopped us from loading our hand luggage in the overhead bins. She made us stuff them under the seats in front of us. There was space im the overhead bin, but there was a bunch of stuff that belonged to the cabin crew. Rude."

Pros: "I liked that we got a lot of food, and the movies were very good. Groups for boarding made sense and we boarded quickly"
Cons: "it was late and despite being 4.5 hours there were no free snacks or food. Only one toilet which we could never use bc of constant turbulence."

Pros: "The ever wonderful Air Canada cancelled a bunch of the flights that I had originally booked 2 months before I left and marooned me in the Toronto airport for an 8 hour layover on my way home. Unacceptable. No reason given, no apology made, nothing."

Pros: "Poor airline, always delayed, dreadful and unfriendly customer service. The only reason I flew with them this short trip was due to price"

Cons: "My flight was changed and I wasn't informed - I cleerly checked my information beforehand but it would be nice if flights were to change by two hours, to know in advance so arrangements could be made"

Cons: "It was so great we didn't go. Got a refund you retards"

Pros: "We were able to switch to an earlier flight. gate agent was very helpful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was late from Barcelona to Mintreal by an hour. I needed a wheelchair - didn't show up! Then pulled a muscle trying to get through customs and they barely held my flight to Chicago. Made it, with No Help. Late into Chicago and still no wheelchair. There was no one from whom to get help. Finally a United Airlines employee took pity on me and got a wheelchair to me and got me to the flight - again, just barely. Over 20 hours in the air, no assistance and poor food. I will never fly air canada again - ever. Not worth the savings. I've spent an entire week recovering and spent the savings on physical therapy due to the damage to my legs."

Cons: "horrible"

Pros: "short trip"
Cons: "delayed but didn't update the screen as delayed even though it was delayed an hour it still said on time."

Cons: "No personal tv on an international flight. The tickets were pretty expensive, I would have expected a personal tv instead of having to use my cell phone- especially with spotty wifi. Chairs weren't very comfortable and the food was so so."

Pros: "Clean, prompt, attentive staff"

Pros: "There was nothing redeeming about this flight."

Cons: "Delays leaving the gate led to longer delays taking off."

Pros: "Nothing to like about this airline. Horrible people especially in toronto, really unhelpful, extremely rude."
Cons: "Air line decided they didn't want me to take my connecting flight. Removed my luggage without consulting with me. Offered me a disgusting hotel. Forced me to pay out of pocket for food, taxis, transfers and my own hotel choice. Staff were so rude. No explanation to why they removed my bags. I made it in plenty of time for my connecting flight but airline had just decided. No staff member was interested in answering my questions or helping. They all just wanted to sod off home. they just didn't care."

Pros: "Despite weather travel delayed I was taken care of very well. Comfortable seats. More leg room. Friendly, calm crew."
Cons: "We were not given the option to change our flight out from Chicago when we knew we wouldn't make the connection in Montreal due to weather."

Cons: "The engine was making an unusually loud whirring sound. Felt concerned that the plane was not fit to fly."

Pros: "The plane was delayed and I had a short layover so I was maybe not going to make it to my next flight so they transferred me to another airline and was upgraded to first class for free!"

Pros: "One attendant did it all. And very well. Impressive."
Cons: "More snack options."

Pros: "I liked the tv and movie options on the United app but thought the movie selection could have been better."

Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."

Pros: "Dr usus I"
Cons: "The keys"

Pros: "The seating was comfortable. On the Chicago keg I was seated in the middle and was not stuck with people who were too big for the seat. I noticed there was an overweight person in first class. Does United have strict policies on size?"
Cons: "Just the fourth seating group had trouble finding a place for my roller board carry on."

Pros: "boarding very easy"
Cons: "no drinks ir snacks offered"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable plane!"

Cons: "Lines"

Pros: "The gate at the Chicago airport was well designed. There was a line for each boarding group, and you could line up early. This is particularly effective for some Asian flights, which can sometimes be chaotic with many different nationalities all lining up."

Cons: "Was never in Chicago but my stuff was."

Pros: "Perfect, but I did upgrade to United's business plus."

Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."

Pros: "Worst flying experience ever"

Cons: "I was informed today that one of my checked bags was picked up by another customer who eventually realized it was not her bag. She brought it back to the airport and refused to turn over the bag until the airport compensated her. (How this happened I have no idea because I stood right by the entrance of the baggage claim and never saw the bag come out). The customer refused to return the bag until the police became involved at which point she agreed to write a note confirmed she did not steal anything. The bag then needs to be sent to me in 2 days and I'll have to verify myself that indeed nothing was taken from the bag. I'm very concerned how this individual came to be in possession of my bag considering, again, I stood right at the entrance of the baggage claim conveyor belt from the time it started to when it ended. As a result, this experience really made me feel frustrated and violated."

Pros: "I got there on time"
Cons: "Why not have people board the plane based on sat number? Why this cattle call and stand in line like you're not going to get a seat? Everyone fighting for line position so they can get a place in the overhead bins? Stupid."

Pros: "on-time! Even a little early!"

Pros: "By bag was broken when I got to my final destination. It looked like they played football with it. I'm filing a claim with United Airlines"

Pros: "Please address the lax enforcement of one carry-on and one under-the-seat bag/passenger."
Cons: "Overhead compartments were full by the time I boarded so my bag was taken and tagged, as was several other passengers. I noticed upon arrival in Hartford that several passengers had 2 bags in the overhead compartment and their coats as well. If you have a policy of one carry-on and one under-the-seat/passenger, why isn't this enforced? It is not fair to the Group 4 and 5 passengers that there is no room in the overhead compartments and they are forced to relinquish their bags. Furthermore, this results in them having to go to the baggage claim area and wait for their carry-on. This added a half hour to my time and my ride had to circle the airport waiting for me to come out."

Pros: "Overall I arrived at my final destination in one piece. I'm satisfied :)"

Pros: ":("
Cons: ":("

Cons: "The airline checkin is terrible and time consuming!"

Cons: "Never made it because of stupid United"
