Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"

Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Cons: "CCheck in process was horrible I only had a small bag which fit under the seat and yet I could not check in online or at the kiosk without somebody coming out to certify that my bag was indeed small very stupid and very cumbersome. I’ve been a United flyer for 30 years and this is the worst experien"

Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."

Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly.Discomport"
Cons: "Discomfort of small space"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Pros: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"
Cons: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The plane was freezing. I needed to put on socks--really wished I had packed wool ones. The seats were cramped and mine did not recline."

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Pros: "Other then they got me there safe, I dont think there is anything I liked about this flight. Pilot did a decent job, there was lots of turbulance so nothing they could do about it and I made it safe."
Cons: "Plane from Chicago to Savannah was small. I was all the way in the seat not slouching and my knees were crammed in the set infront of me. The arm rests were digging into my thighs as well. Im used to not much leg room but this was a first for how crammed in I was into a seat, Im 6'3" & 270lbs. Ive probably been on 50 different planes over the years to give you some perspective of my experience flying when I say this was a first and a very uncomfortable plane. The plane to take us to Savannah arrived so late it pushed my flight back by like an 1.5 hours from what it was supposed to be."

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Pros: "I didn't like anything about it, they will overturn a half hours late, with the excuse "waiting for aircraft"... My first flight was delayed for over four hours, I had to sleep in the airport, terrible company to do business with… Will tell everyone not to use United ever again"
Cons: "Flight worth almost 3 hours late, there was really no reason to be late, they texted at 5:00 in the morning saying the flight was already two hours late on the flight wasn't supposed to be until 5:40 PM. Bad planning, seems very disregarding to people's travel plan, and careless about the whole situation. I would expect at least some courtesy food or the offering of airlines miles points for the late flight. Selfish!"

Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "I felt like tuna in a can."

Pros: "Free movie on flight to Denver was nice.... Free movies and internet was nice because I didn't have to dig around for a credit card and you pay enough for tickets anyway, that it SHOULD be free. Its there for one person, EVERYONE should be able to use it. So it was a nice perk to kill time! Boarding was awesome, but only because I have a handicap"
Cons: "I just don't like my soda poured from a can into a tiny cup....Just give me a cold can of soda for the 3 hours....geez."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"

Pros: "The price was great"
Cons: "The inability to choose a seat without paying a premium price left me in the last row without a reclining seat. I'm 6'3" and those seats should be considered torture"

Cons: "Plane was delayed. Missed connecting flight. Rerouting made a one stop flight into a 2 stop overnight flight. Reached my final destination 15 hrs late."

Cons: "There was no food served as well as no entertainment"

Pros: "That you provided a direct flight"
Cons: "I purchased my tickets on 10/30/2015 for an aisle seat. I check in the day before and no seat assignment, get to the kiosk and no seat assignment. I see the agent at the gate and she gives me a middle seat, I complained and she gave me an aisle seat. I get to my seat and someone is sitting in that seat, I go back to the front of the plane and wait to be assigned to another seat. The agent said they changed the plane that's why everyone lost seat assignments, 6 out of the 8 people that all booked together sat in their assigned seats. Never fly with them again."
