Cons: "Delayed flight made me miss my connection and spend a night in Frankfurt. Take off time, bag didn’t come out as priority, waited over 25 minutes."

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. If the person in front of you out their seat back it was on your lap and you couldn’t exit your seat. They were narrow and hard as a board, like sitting on a wood fold out chair. We were delayed 2.5 hours and they wouldn’t turn the air up, so we melted."

Cons: "The seat to be more comfortable really for me wasn’t I fly all the time but this year I don’t know the space between me and the front seats was very small. I fly last year and was much better"

Pros: "Terrible flight. Super tight seats. Major airport delay to take off and land. Overall not a good experience."

Pros: "United airlines check in lady in Knoxville TN, She was efficient, caring and awesome. I also loved the air hostesses on Lufthansa flights, they found space for my bags on board and took care of me all flight long!"
Cons: "Lufthansa gate staff may be in need for a better attitude and not the one of a disgruntled child. I would have expected my 3 checked in bags to arrive with me in Cairo, they did not, so making sure the checked in bags arriving with the passengers can be an needed improvement!"

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "More leg room."

Cons: "Lufthansa lost my luggage. Still waiting in my hotel."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice."
Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "I did not like the food"

Pros: "Large entertainment variety"
Cons: "Comfort less than desirable. Not enough sitting space. Also my luggage was left behind in Munich."

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants got impatient with a few passengers."

Pros: "Short flight, snacks, timely take off and landing."

Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"

Pros: "The fact that it was indeed a plane that went to europe. that's it."
Cons: "The staff (especially ticketing) was rude. And hung up on me when I asked for their name because they knew they were wrong."

Cons: "never got to goddamn frankfurt"

Pros: "Premium economy seats make a huge difference in terms of comfort. The Vegan pre-selected meal was way better this leg of the trip than the LAX to FRA trip. Entertainment was good too."

Cons: "Seats very crowded. No leg room at all."

Pros: "We were warmly welcomed on board by the flight captain. I had not expected this. My wife has some physical challenges and received special treatment, in fact we were accorded priority in boarding as she had to temporarily use a wheel chair. Me and my daughter all enjoyed the privilege by association."
Cons: "My wife is diebetes, we had requested for a special diet but although this was documented on the air ticket, there was oversight and she had to make do with normal menu. Fortunately there was no adverse consequences."

Cons: "The forward economy cabin was too cold. When the passenger in front of me had his seatback all the way back, I could not get out of my seat, lean forward, nor see the entertainment screen or eat easily."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable in Economy section. Crew provided drinks regularly and dinner and snack were adequate. We received special assistance from staff at the airport and that was really appreciated."
Cons: "All airlines seem to serve pasta or chicken options. It would be nice to have other selections."

Cons: "The flight got delayed and it was a nightmare for my handicap old mom."

Cons: "No reason for the cancellation was given. I arrived in Cairo a day late for a 10 day tour I had already paid for which caused major problems for me. I will never fly Lufthansa again."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful as I was traveling alone with my 1 year old."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."

Pros: "Clean plane.."
Cons: "I was very upset that from Kuwait to Frankfurt I paid in sir net but the speed was very bad . It's not fair to pay 15$ for that it's not fair. And I ask my money refund! And again they saying that speed is very good for watching YouTube and video streaming! Why Lie?? IT IS NOT FAIR!"

Pros: "Wine was good."
Cons: "Food was tasteless - of very questionable quality, too much sugar and fat, unhealthy. Space between seats very tight, very uncomfortable. Music sound poor"

Pros: "My first time flying with Lufthansa was outstanding. Great service, super friendly and ready to please. Appreciated the free adult beverages and frequent availability of water during the long, dehydrating flight. In-flight movies were fun to pass the time."
Cons: "Disembarked the plane in a lot and had to shuttle back to the terminal. Not a big issue but much prefer disembarking at the terminal."

Cons: "Due to repair aircraft equipmen, almost 1h delay my flight."

Pros: "Nothing so far"
Cons: "incoming flight was delayed by 1 hour, ensuring that we missed our connecting flight from FRA to BOS. Lufthansa staff could have already booked me on a next flight instead of having me go to a service desk and NOT being able to get me on a flight - I had to make my own arrangements while calling the Lufthansa help line.... Not a big fan of the airline and will try to avoid as much as I can."

Pros: "Very friendly staff and food was delicious."
Cons: "I had to run from Terninal A to Z to make this flight since our first flight was delayed arriving due to weather. As a result, my luggage didn't make it to my destination."

Pros: "Comfortable."
Cons: "Needed more visible organized pickets showing the seat ranges avoiding mixed lined passengers and delay."

Cons: "My flight got delayed so I wasn't even in the airplane. I'm staying at the airport for 24 hours before the next one leaves. Didn't offer hote, blanket or anything. They didnt care. I'm never flying united airlines again."

Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."

Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "The shabbiness of the plane. The cramped space. The lack of overhead bin space. In fact, the space above my seat was full of suitcases of the crew. I had to find space somewhere else. If I had not been able to board early, I probably would not have found space."

Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."

Pros: "The pilots"
Cons: "It was a bit hot in the salon. Food was average. Flight intendants were not very attentive. My neighbor was waiting for about 20 min to get someone picked up her empty glass. Entertainment: there was no Russian language."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Pros: "Despite not being able to recline my seat, I at least had room for my legs, unlike the last flight."
Cons: "My seat was unable to recline. Boarding was a bit chaotic, and the constant shuttling around Frankfurt airport is just ridiculous. (Not that the airline can do anything about it)."

Pros: "Lufthansa seems to have friendlier more helpful customer service than does Webjet's customer service."
Cons: "Webjet customer service didn't seem very friendly or concerned about helping to request fees waived from themselves and Lufthansa."

Pros: "One and half hour flight, not much to report."

Pros: "Friendly service, clean plane, good food for economy class, and entertainment was good. Seats were not bad for economy."
Cons: "For some reason this A340 does not have air vents in the passenger service unit. This is a first for me, as every other plane I've ever been on has air vents that the passenger can position to direct cool air. This airplane lacks these! For some reason our area of the plane in row 35 was so hot. It must have been 80F and air was not moving. It seems like other areas of the plane may have been cooler."

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and accommodating"
Cons: "Most of the announcements were hard to hear and understand"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty good, and was plentiful. Comfortable seating."
Cons: "I don't think my tv worked."

Pros: "Comfort, pleasant, and efficiency"
Cons: "Food seems an afterthought in an otherwise top-notch business"

Pros: "All was very proffessional"

Pros: "Again, excellent customer service. Can't say enough."

Cons: "Couldn't checkin online. Had to wait in line for over an hour."

Cons: "The window seats are not comfortable like in other planes. The windows are too high, you don't see anything. The seat is too far from the window so you cannot lean towards it. For a 10 hour flight it was not comfortable."

Pros: "Efficient, early check in and seat selection was simple and done from home. Got to the airport early which is unusual for me but everything went smoothly and was relatively low stress."

Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly."

Cons: "On time"

Pros: "There was a special needs boy that sat behind me and he had some issues (long flight, understandable) and the crew were AMAZING with him. Not everyone has common or even human decency. These people were rad, and it was lovely to see."

Cons: "We went to Gatwick(75.00 Uber) to reschedule in person and we were told there were no refunds and if we wanted to change it would be 250 pounds. It is my wife’s and my 35 year anniversary and this wants a mood dampener"

Pros: "Pilot was friendly and addressed the crew and passengers multiple times with updates."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Politeness during check-in, timeliness in providing gate information, having a person at the BA desk to help, being on time"

Pros: "For the most part the people and workers were very nice"
Cons: "Couldn’t add baggage with the ticket bought online. Once I did it cost $100 to add 1 bag. Checking in process was the worst, as many kiosks didn’t work and the software seemed buggy."

Cons: "Constantly late! Unreliable and missed my connecting flight, AGAIN!!! 4 out of last 10 flights I have had lost luggage. No apology, it’s “just BA”."

Pros: "BAc- great brand and very professional."
Cons: "Nothing for me"

Pros: "Fab flight in every way"

Cons: "Transit time should be calculated reasonably."

Pros: "Flight screens showed info"
Cons: "Bring back free food ba"

Cons: "Had no idea we had not payed to check a bag. Could have paid online prior to boarding for 30 pounds, but because we did not know, had to pay 65 pounds in order to check a bag at the airport. I am extremely dissatisfied with this flight and with British airways in general. I wish I would have known about the baggage and I could have saved myself a LOT of money. British airway crew were rude and unhelpful. I will not be flying with them again."

Cons: "A 2-hour layover was too short. We experienced crazy long lines for: the bus between terminals, immigration passport review; passport review before the metal detector, and detailed tests on permitted volumes of shampo, and toothpaste. The agent forced me to check a normally permitted carryon bag, then the bags took 45 minutes to be placed on the turnstile after the flight. Not an efficient airport."

Pros: "This is a no frills BA flight, but I'd rather do fly with BA than the other options. You have to pay for food and drink, the quality of crew far exceeds the usual low cost dross."
Cons: "Nothing for the price. Although my preference would be BA via London City."

Cons: "The connection was not good too little time between flights also the American Airlines desk was hidden. We had to get boarding passes at the exit gate. There should have been a rep to guide passengers to desk."

Pros: "Quickness of flight."
Cons: "Came round collecting cups etc within minutes of being served. No sky shop. And I was sitting in 3rd row (by choice) but didn't know I would have a curtain inches from my face for most of the journey."

Cons: "One piece of luggage was left at Heathrow. It arrived on the next flight so it turned out ok but was stressful for an hour."

Pros: "Good for leg room and nice and the seats are comfy and wide too. Still get a free drink and snack on this flight and the service was friendly and efficient throughout. We were very quick to board and flight landed early, so very happy."
Cons: "I'm guessing this plane was stopping in EDI for the night, so it parked way, way away from the terminal, so we had an extra 15 minutes none of us had been expecting to wait for the bus and transfer."

Pros: "The seat was fine. the flight was as expected."
Cons: "expectation that one will fly with only one carry-on bag and not receive any food or beverage during the flight. industry trend is ridiculous ..."

Pros: "Much quieter than Heathrow so a more relaxed environment to travel. Flight left slightly late but made up time and landed ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea. No issue with BA charging for alcolhol in a 1 hour flight but still think drinks like tea/coffee should be provided free."

Pros: "Crew was mostly kind and helpful. My bags arrived at their final destination."
Cons: "I was told that I had to check my bag because it would not fit in the overhead bin. When I got on the plane I found that the overhead bins were ample sized for my hiking pack. I know that British Airways has a policy regarding bags in overhead bins that basically says 'if you cannot lift your bag into the overhead bin un-assisted, you must check your bag.' My husband and I are both experienced hikers, we lifted our packs unassisted on the last plane, yet they forced us to check our bags. I'm glad our bags made it to the UK, but this is literally the first time I've checked a bag and had it arrive. Also, the boarding passes sent to me on my phone were rejected by almost every security/boarding check. This is after BA supposedly fixed their error with the previous boarding passes. Overall not pleased with the experience but glad I paid under $300 for my ticket."

Cons: "Everything was sub par with BA. We upgraded to world traveler plus and the seats were old, there was trash from the previous flight and the tv screens were from 1995. The movies are only on loop so when you take off and are finally allowed to turn on the tv, the movies are 25 minutes in. All around a waste of money. Will never fly BA AGAIN!!"

Pros: "Staff and Crew amazing and very friendly on this trip"
Cons: "Nothing negative to report best flight for some time"

Cons: "Left late. Everything was unorganized."

Cons: "As requested checked my bag in and it took an absolute age to get my bag in Edinburgh. I ordered a toastie it was lukewarm"

Pros: "Amazing service in club Europe"
Cons: "Nothing to say"

Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."

Pros: "Comfortable enough seats"
Cons: "Not even drinks were served"

Pros: "Staff at Heathrow was professional and efficient. Staff on board was professional and friendly as well."

Cons: "could not even get water to drink without purchasing"

Pros: "The best ever and a flew crew that understands hospital."
Cons: "Movies were second rate"

Pros: "Even on a short flight, you can feel a difference with the crew. This one was very good."

Cons: "security in Heathrow was AWFUL. There was only ONE person working to screen luggage AND check luggage that was questionable. There wee 15 people waiting for luggage who almost missed their connections. I sprinted through the airport and made my connection with 2 minutes to spare."

Cons: "No hay entretenimiento"

Pros: "Service was great - so polite and friendly. And the coffee was worth every penny."
Cons: "the luggage fee - Now I understand why the fare was so inexpensive! I'm an American and thus slow :-)"

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Seating was roomier and much more comfortable. More leg room."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks."

Pros: "It left on time."
Cons: "It was American airlines not BA. British airways never sent our bags on our flight leaving Gatwick. We got our luggage 2 days later."

Pros: "Luggage delayed."

Cons: "Did not get the seats I paid for"

Pros: "Was not made aware of baggage policy. Their regular policy allows one checked baggage but not our ticket. Was not prompted when doing online check in and led to me paying almost 200 pounds for luggage. Just ridiculous!"
Cons: "Baggage policy not clear - good way to force customers to pay more and help their revenue!"

Pros: "Boarding was straight forward with the automated scanning of boarding pass."
Cons: "I was totally taken aback that I had to pay for tea and coffee. After having to pay for baggage and to reserve my seat for the flight. At least beverages could have been offered at no additional cost. Very disappointed with BA."

Pros: "The 1 hr flight"
Cons: "They charged 3.50£ for tea"

Pros: "I was travelling alone with a baby and a toddler and found most of the staff very helpful - stowing my bags, helping to carry my buggy, helping with seat belts etc."
Cons: "A member of staff at the gate referred to my 2 year old daughter as "a difficult child" to another member of staff because she didn't like having her photo taken. I felt it was very rude and unfair, particularly as I had to lift her to an awkward height (whilst also holding a baby) as the camera was in a fixed position. It was clear the staff member didn't have children herself!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrived about 45 mins before the departure time and they refused to let my 85 year old sick dad in a wheel chair board. They did not assist him in rebooking and we had to sleep in the airport to catch an Easy jet in the morning as all hotels were fully booked. This is about the worst service I have ever encountered and I would like a full refund Thanks Charles"

Pros: "Slept most of the way. Cabin looked new, so that was nice."
Cons: "Having to gate check my bag even though it fit in the overhead bin."

Cons: "Did not like that I thought it was a BA flight but was really a EI flight , which means I had to get a boarding pass but I was sure was on BA and almost went to there booking counter to get boarding pass."

Pros: "Nothing. At. All."
Cons: "This was a nightmare. BA had no flights available to Edinburgh. Booked on 3 separate flights at 2 different airports. Last one was canceled outright. After being awake for 28 hours and traveling for 15, we finally were given a hotel room for the night in London. Still trying to get to Edinburgh."

Cons: "Couldn't say as the flight was cancelled on arrival in LHR. Took 5hrs and 8 seperate question to discover what was going on and to be offered a flight to Glasgow as an alternative. The flight to Glasgow also took of late arriving at 2310 local. Europecar were great hired a Mercedes E220 with a gps to complete the journey to Edinburgh, at a cost of 600GBP for 3 1/2 days including fuel. Arrived 8hrs late, seriously affecting sleep patterns and ruining an already tight schedule. BA could have met us exiting ac from LAS in T5 explained situation, new boarding cards etc, total fail, should have booked flight with Lufthansa to EDI via Frankfurt for 600USD less. BA Staff comments such as " I'm sorry I haven't been trained for this situation, I can't help you after 40 minutes" etc Total lack of staff available and able to assist, super poor knowledge, massive queues not moving."

Pros: "Snacks were delicious, flight attendant was very attentive, great conversation—I mean it might have been better because I was in first class, but it was definitely worth the upgrade."
Cons: "Seats weren’t as comfortable as I have experienced before in first class on other airlines (Delta, American)"

Pros: "Flight was faster than expected."
Cons: "Stuck with a window seat next to a couple on a group tour. She spilled into my seat so we kept jockeying for better comfort next to each other."

Pros: "What’s to like about flying commercial economy ? The chicken meal was tasty though."
Cons: "45 min delay boarding because the catering was late. Room in the seats. Plug between seats was not very reliable."

Pros: "Very efficient service and crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment skipped a lot and sound was bad. Flight felt very busy overall for a red-eye... Difficult to sleep."

Cons: "This flight was not a Lufthansa flight as advertised. It was a United flight. And they changed the plane, I believe. The two aisle seats I reserved ended up being a middle and a window seat. Grrr..."

Cons: "Very turbulent day."

Pros: "Everything was very nice."

Pros: "Everything. It was a great flight"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Dirty seat, broken screen & headphone socket."

Pros: "The flight arrived"
Cons: "The crew has the worst attitude & we are late."

Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"

Pros: "United staff worked with me to book a round-about itinerary on a different airline that got me to my destination within 8 hours of the original flight. Progress announcements were made at regular, predictable intervals."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled an hour after scheduled takeoff due to mechanical issues. The plane was actually repaired, but the time it took to do so exceeded the flight crew's hours. I understand the practical implications, but in the moment it did feel maddeningly bureaucratic."

Pros: "It was great."

Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"

Pros: "comfortable and on time"

Pros: "Fantastic service! Much obliged for everything!"

Pros: "We upgraded to more leg room since our flight to LA was terrible."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""

Pros: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Cons: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"

Pros: "While it was a long flight it was comfortable and surprisingly the food was good."
Cons: "We ran late as the plane needed some work on it before we could take off; when it was finally done there was a storm and could not take off again. We were behind over an hour before we could leave but we made up for in as we had good tail wind."

Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."

Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."

Cons: "My booking confirmation told me we were on Lufthansa flight #7644 so naturally we went to the Lufthansa terminal at the airport. We waited in line to check in and were then redirected to a different terminal because we were actually flying United. How did that happen and why wasn't it explained ahead of time? The seat was too small for an international flight and the entertainment was unwatchable because there was a constant screeching sound in the headphones, a problem with the jack."

Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have more room"

Pros: "First leg of journey cancelled because of weather, so we drove to ORD. Phone agents were nice, helpful, and effective."
Cons: "Somehow, airplane food keeps getting worse. There's got to be a bottom somewhere, but we haven't found it yet."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and lights left on so I couldn't sleep."

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Uncomfortable.. not enough leg room, seats don't lay back enough"

Pros: "Everyone was nice and polite"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed an hour and they had us waiting in the airplane which was really hot. Also, the seats were really uncomfortable."

Cons: "Food was embarrassingly poor I would rather pay additional fees to upgrade to s quality meal Bags in Edinburgh took over an hour and a half to retrieve But, the flight was safe and the crew very good"

Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."

Pros: "Enjoyed the free movies"

Pros: "I need some substance $400 for a flight And you offered me No water or snack"

Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Had to wait 40 minutes for a gate"

Pros: "The flight was to depart at 8:15 but due to delay only leaving at 3;30. Dissapointed as it took two agents to process a replacement flight (first agent offered a connection for a 1.5h flight only)."
Cons: "More attentive staff willing to help and at the very least, be emphatic."

Pros: "Sucked. .the boarding process was a cluster.tiny bag of salted ceap..huge snoring man sweating on me in seat"
Cons: "everyrhing"

Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "On time arrived early"

Pros: "That they stored my carrion that didn't fit overhead for free"
Cons: "Overhead was to small"

Cons: "Connecting flight Delayed 8hrs. Missed flight"

Pros: "I liked the equipment, very comfortable. The actual entertainment was alright, but it would be better to have the movies start when one is ready, and not on a fixed schedule. Plenty of bathrooms."
Cons: "We were quite shocked that we couldn't check in on-line. We spent literally hours, even brought a computer with us on a day-trip so we would be the regular 24 hrs before. Then tat also changed to 23 hours, then we were denied completely. This is very old-fashioned and really unacceptable. Why???"

Pros: "Hmm....hard to say. Probably the crossword puzzle in the airline magazine."
Cons: "Well the wifi and onboard entertainment was broken. We were delayed (5th or 6th time I've flown United IN A ROW that I've been delayed)! They don't really serve you food. I just think United is pretty horrible and they don't really care at all."

Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."

Cons: "STINGY DRINK SERVINGS TINY SNACK BAGS"

Pros: "The flight attendant did the best he could knowing I was uncomfortably hot and there was nothing I could do. He gave me an extra ice cream to help :)"
Cons: "Complained to flight attendant about RIDICULOUSLY high temperature of the air craft. Flight attendants told me they had already requested the pilots turn the head down twice. The temperature of the plane made me extremely uncomfortable and unhappy."

Pros: "We left nearly on time, arrived on time and had a pleasant comfortable flight. I went to sleep early and skipped the food and drink, so I cannot comment on this aspect of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Cons: "This flight didn't happen."

Pros: "The movie selection was great, upto date with great titles"
Cons: "Crew was surly, and acted like they were doing us a favor for being there. service was slow. Food was pricey and terrible. I had the Ceasar chicken wrap paid somethings around 9 dollars and Iwas served half a small wrap. The worst part was even though we bought our seats early, together and picked our seats during purchase were changed at the gate and my wife and I were seated in opposite sides, both in center seats and had to beg our way into sitting together."

Pros: "The free movies on the united app were awesome"

Cons: "Very small plane. I have to valet my carry on which meant removing all my medicine (I am a cancer patient) and my camera and carry them on board with me."

Pros: "Nice flight, not packed"
