Pros: "Cabin crew were very nice. Food was okay, while the legroom was good too."

Cons: "I know this isn’t really the fault of the airline, but there was a loud toddler sitting behind me. It was frustrating, because the mother did not seem to do anything to have her child be quiet. It makes it hard for everyone around them to have comfortable rest, especially as this was an overnight flight. I have flown over the years with up to 5 children and do know how hard it can be, but it is important to foresee the needs of the child. I wonder of the attendants could have been a little more firm with the mother to ask her not to let the child roam the aisle."

Cons: "There is nowhere in the airport to go for long layovers. The ticket counter didn't open until closer to the flight, without it I couldn't get inside to the Travelers Lounge, and spent most of my time in the entry area. I also was assigned a middle seat, which is even less fun than usual when you've been in India and your bowels are acting wonky."
Pros: "The crew was excellent."

The second time we boarded and were told we’re waiting on catering who wasn’t on site then had to go through airport security. After 3HOURS , we were asked to leave the plane. For rebounding the next morning with no explanation. The next morning the flight was delayed an additional 3HOURS. We were never given food in all this time of a wait. This became an 18+ hour delay.

Pros: "Friendly helpful crew"

Cons: "Senior flight staff were very rude except for the one gentlemen. We did not receive our vegetarian meals."

Pros: "I LOVED the WiFi entertainment that had many movies to choose to watch for free. Staff was very friendly and good."
Cons: "I hated that the movie entertainment wasn't available on every flight. We had 2 flights in one day and just a couple hours after using the movies the second flight didn't allow it, I was hugely disappointed because it really makes the flight go by fast. Seats werent very comfortable. Boarding could be better."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "The outlet for charging was unreliable"
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The entertainment on board was limited, shoddy, and frankly disappointing. Why you are asking customers to download the United app instead of providing onboard entertainment like almost every other airline in the world is unknown to me. In comparison with other airlines (particularly airlines in Asia), it was downright egregious. The airlines top people obviously have no interest in providing any comfort for the those who are unwilling to pay the extra money. I do not understand why the airlines believes people should have to pay for their own meal on a 7 hour flight when they've already shelled out the money for the flight. In addition, why should I have to pay an extra $89 for a so-called premium aisle seat? It's completely inexplicable that the state of all airlines in America have fallen to this level."
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "Everything went fine no problems and it was XMAS eve"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Good service on board."
Cons: "For boarding at the gate, attendant scanned boarding passes at one terminal and asked passengers to board next to another terminal across the room. Anyone could have walked onto the plane without a boarding pass, which seems to be a security concern. It felt as if I was seated over the rear wheels of the plane. During taxi and takeoff, there was an irregular bump that made a noise and vibrated the plane every second or so, and sped up as the plane sped up. I was concerned that something was the matter with the tire or wheel."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "terrible food mediocre service no overnight snacks in a 15 hr long flight no personal entertainment system; with bad movies playing on a large screen making it impossible to get any rest poor drink service"

Cons: "Get on it United, hot weather is not a good reason for a twelve hrs delay, hot temperatures didn't come last minute and this flight was not the only one flew out from the airport."
