Cons: "not enough baggage space for cary-ons"
Pros: "On flight entertainment was provided"
Cons: "Even though I booked two tickets together at the same time months before the flight, and there was no option to reserve the seats in advance. when we arrived at the airport we had to go to the gates to get our seats and we were separated, both middle seat exit row on opposite aisles. We asked if any changes could be made and we were told we chose economy seating and all the seats were booked. I will avoid flying with uUnited going forward"

Cons: "The entertainment system has a fee or else you have to use your device to access the United app to access entertainment."
Pros: "Everything went as planned. Professional friendly crew with good rapport! Cabin felt spacious and seats were just right. The food and entertainment packages were quality, appropriate and functioning. The crew put us on a strict schedule allowing us time to sleep and refresh. Toiletries clean and no lines. Just an overall lovely flight!"

Pros: "Left on time and landed early"
Cons: "Air attendant is disruptive and throwing her own opinions at people without listening and disrespectfulness. But it was a good chance for me to debating in English."
Pros: "Overall geeat"
Cons: "Snacks suck I would appreciate one snack instead of a mix of 1 or 2 treats in a bag of nonsense. Peanuts, cookies, pretzels. Choose 1. never got wifi going on either flights. After struggling through downloading the unnecessary apps I was never able to connect, even with assistance from a flight attendant"
Pros: "Not bad overall. I was exhausted at one point and passed out in my chair. I would have missed my flight if the gentleman boarding people hadn't noticed and woke me up to ask if I should be on the flight. I was out so deeply that I hadn't heard any announcements. There wasn't any food on the three flights but a cookie waffle thing and that was all I had during the 13ish hours I was on planes. The staff was super awesome and nice. Space wasn't any different than other planes, but tight on the first flight. I got lucky on the last two."
Cons: "I was starving and literally dehydrated. I was so thirsty."
Cons: "Tried to cancel flight significantly ahead of time due to change in my military duties and was offered $0 because all of the fees and charges far exceeded the cost of the tickets. Very unhappy with United."
Pros: "I like the crews in the plane"
Cons: "But I didn't really like the food and plane was shaking that gave me nauseas and made me throw up a few times"
Cons: "Not even beverage service. Water only"
Cons: "Seat are very cramped. I'm short and hardly ever complain about leg room but it was terrible."

Pros: "easy boarding, helpful united employees"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and pilots did great despite turbulence"
Cons: "Didn't like the snack mix and too cheap to pay for WiFi"
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Pros: "I was insulted by your staff. From Tech support to Face to Face Tech."
Cons: "I confirmed my flight. I had a 3 hour delay in CHI. Having a 90 minute drive and an hour flight. I decided to skip my first flight and just head to the connecter in CHI. My whole flight was canceled as a result. The front desk guy was smug and extremly rude. The Tech support and this representative offered 2 different "Facts" on what could be done. As a result I was forced to pay for a hotel and miss a day of work. All because I wanted to spend extra time with my family. I have nothing possitive to say about your product and as a business owner Im embarrassed for you."
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"
Pros: "the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The seats are so small you cannot access your carry on under the seats."
Pros: "Nice CSR people in AZO"
Pros: "Overall it was a great trip. We left a little late a both connections, but arrived on time so that's good."
Cons: "The only thing two things I'd change would be our plane arriving back the Kalamazoo on time. It wasn't even in Kalamazoo very long. The other thing I'd change would be having the two people helping with boarding speak more clearly on the intercom. I seriously couldn't understand much of what they were saying. Also, there's not much select for pop in your store."
Pros: "Direct TV on the flight was limited to the channels available. While I like The Lego Movie, I would also prefer more choices."
Cons: "I am 5'10" and my knees were pressed into the seat in front of me for the entire trip. Essentially, I didn't fit in the seats."
Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant. plane was clean"
Cons: "I was stuck with commercials for direct tv, two feet from my face the whole trip. I would push the button to turn tv off but it would come back on less than five minutes latter. I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy.. crumbs on seats debris on floors. Dirty arm rest and seat backs"
Pros: "Flight was nice, clean and crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was pathetic, entertainment system was old, no independent entertainment system on board, aircraft looked outdated."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A miserable 13 hour flight. The wifi did not work the entire trip and the movies shown on the large screens kept "skipping" as well. There were no screens on the seat backs to watch movies. (And since wi fi wasn't working I couldn't watch movies on iPad either.). The food was overcooked and inedible."
Cons: "First flight was to leave before 6am but didn't leave till after 8:30 which ment i would miss my flights in DC and not get to St. Thomas until around midnight, too late to get a ferry to St John so I lost a day of my trip. Return trip was late leaving St Thomas, missed connection in DC to Norfolk, Should have been in Norfolk around 5pm but didn't get in till after 11pm. Paid extra for ticket insurance but was told there was no help for loss of day, meals or anything."
Pros: "Getting where I was going."
Pros: "Food was good, flight was early, and I watched three movies on my phone through the United app. No complaints here!"
Pros: "Almost missed flight. Ran from chicago flight and Medford was already boarding"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and I could tell cared a lot about the comfort and safety of the passengers"
Cons: "The plane was older and he seats were very uncomfortable. My window shade didn't open"
