Pros: "Nothing, my flight was delayed so bad that if I would have had taken off I would have been stuck in DFW Airport until probably Friday as I would have had missed my flight and all the flights to PR were sold out until the 19th.

Cons: "Canceled flight due to hurricane Irma and couldn't book me on a flight until 5 days later, had to buy an overpriced ticket on a different airline and still waiting for refund."
Cons: "Closed gate early and left me stranded. The AA employees could care less about you. They are hired for the rudeness and indifference."
Cons: "old plane with worn out seats."
Pros: "Gate staff had a nice sense of humor and did keep us reasonably informed about the delayed departure."
Cons: "The headroom and seating space on this plane were tight and inadequate. Paid extra for 'preferred seating' but certainly couldn't tell that I got anything for the money. Had to duck to get in and out of seat. Was in a 2-seat row with a large, but not oversize young man and our shoulders were glued together the entire trip. Was served warm tomato juice with no ice, although ice bucket was full. last flight of evening so perhaps attendants were tired, but nonetheless...."

The discount worked out to be 6 dollars. Not a pleasant experience."

Cons: "The airports restaurants closed and security shut down as well. We were prisoners in the airport with only a vending machine. Unbelievable. Believe the Allegiant Air stories from 60 Minutes. The stories are true."
Pros: "Nothing, honestly. Constantly delayed, cheap airline with forced fees, only one I could take and I can’t believe you exist. You have horrible customer service"

Pros: "Check in was fine Wait was short Crew was great!"
Cons: "Seats REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE SAD Could not have updated the seats on newer Jets."
Pros: "To be honest nothing"
Cons: "Missed flight any no one was willing to help us pure BS"
Cons: "5 delays between for a 4:27PM flight that eventually took off at 3:15am. My biggest issue is the unrealistic delay that could have left us in the airport for 11+ hours. Very thankful that they did allow me to change departure locations to another airport at no charge. That flight went well, even arrived early."
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed by more than 2 hours, we were able to make it home."
Cons: "Started with constant delays. Flight ended up leaving around 8:30 when the flight was supposed to leave at 5:59. Once boarded there were no snacks, no liquor and only a few options to drink. The flight attendant was mumbling and kept on messing up what he was supposed to say the entire flight."
Pros: "The check-in line moved quickly and our representative was very friendly and encouraged us to download the app rather than pay for boarding passes. Good experience all around"
Pros: "I have never experienced this before. You stand in line to get a tag for your bag. Then you stand in line to check your bag. Then you stand in a Disney style HUGE line just to get to the escalator to take you to the second floor so you can go through security. Thank goodness for TSA precheck! That line was long but not very long like the other line."
Pros: "Easy boarding, very nice crew. I would definitely recommend spending the extra for Priority, it is much faster."
Cons: "7.5HR DELAY. LOST A DAY. ARRIVING AT 3AM VS 6:30PM TECH ISSUES NOT ALLOWING CHECKIN ONLINE POORLY TRAINED STAFF AND SUPERIORS AT CHECKIN ONE HR ON TARMAC AS PER HEADCOUNT ISSUE WHEREBY, TWICE ASKED ON PLANE WHO I WAS. EMBARASSING. RUINED MY VACA WITH MY HUSBAND SANS KIDS:-(((((("
Pros: "Great price, flight on time , great trip would use again"
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "EVERYTHING is extra payment, even a small carry-on; water $2!!!; seating is extremely cramped"
Pros: "It is hard to beat the price of tickets for this airline. I love the price; that the flights are direct & almost always on time; that the staff, from the flight attendants to ticket agents, all seem professional, helpful & friendly; and that the planes are clean and seats well cushioned & comfortable."
Cons: "I don't like that the seats don't lean back & that they are very close together with little leg/knee room. Altho the base price for the flights is cheap, they charge for "extras", including making your reservation by phone instead of online, printing out your boarding pass &choosing your seat. There's a fee for carry on's as well as regular size luggage. If you don't prepay for your luggage or if your luggage weighs more than 40 lbs, they charge $50, instead of $25. They not only charge for food, but also for water or any beverage. If you are prepared for a no frills flight & are willing to sit separately from your travel companions, etc. then this is a great way to save time (direct flights) and money. I will choose to fly with them again, even tho My husband & I prob. won't get to sit together. If you know what to expect & plan for it, it is a great way to save."
Pros: "My kids and I had great experiences with Allegiant Air, thanks in large part to some excellent flight attendants. This was the first flight for both of my children (5, 7) and they had a blast. On our initial flight from Indianapolis to Ft. Lauderdale the attendants even gave each of them their own set of pin-on wings since it was their first time. The kids loved this!"
Pros: "Actual flight good and crew very accommodating"
Cons: "Seats poor. Waited 40 mins before the luggage entered the belt for pickup. Held us up for transportation to rent lot."
Pros: "I chose this flight knowing it was gonna be a little cramped and no snacks. But I loved the price, so I booked it. The unexpected bonus was the crew. They were down to earth and funny."
Pros: "Boarding at the new Austin South terminal was a breeze!"
Cons: "It's ridiculous to make passengers keep their personal items on the floor when most of the overhead lockers are empty. Ridiculous and dangerous."
Pros: "Love the ticket price, but charging $44 for a carry-on? C'mon man! Added charges that were worth it? Priority boarding: $15, Exit row seating: $25 Also be advised that all food & drink is for purchase and must be purchased with debit or credit card - absolutely no cash."
Pros: "Fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Both original and 2nd plane had malfunctions which caused extensive delays and doubled boarding time"
Pros: "No frills inexprnsive"
Cons: "No services"
Pros: "The original booking price was great."
Cons: "All of the additional charges for the flight may make other airlines cheaper. You even have to pay extra if you pick a seat before you check in at the airport. If you don't print your ticket online or save it to your phone, you have to pay extra for that too! Overall, the worst part about the flight was that the seats are actually very uncomfortable. I'm not sure if this flight was now worth the original case posted."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Could of had more selections on the flight for snacks"
Pros: "My book"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "That fact that they did not suply even one free bottle or cup of water is awful. I was very thirsty but did not get a drink because they chaged $2.00 for one bottle of water, and the is just plain wrong."
Pros: "flight took off on time"
Pros: "Crew was amazing & child friendly."
Pros: "Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Plane was very clean and more spacious than any other airline coach seats. We departed on time and arrived 15 minutes early at our destination.

Cons: "Honestly i have no complaints."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Muy mal aerolínea"
Pros: "everything was organized, friendly and right on time"
Cons: "seats are an in thick. also, too much talking!, why do you need to tell people abc are on the left, def rt three times? they re marked and a few tines not to queue by the bathroom? and in and on... after the safety fdrill, pipe down, its annoying!"
Cons: "7 hours late on a direct flight"
Cons: "Poor communication about delays, delayed for over an hour with no where to find once on the plane, nobody offered any of the passengers anything to drink. Overall my worst flying experience with United ever."
Pros: "My bag actually made it to my destination before I did. I also managed to modify my flight on the United app to a better one than the customer service provided."
Cons: "no accommodation or food vouchers offered. If I didn't have a smart phone to shop around, I would have been subject to price gouging of local hotels. I was quoted $399/night at one of the generic hotels advertised at the airport kiosk."
Pros: "It seemed they had just installed new carpet and the seats looked like new. The plane was nice."
Cons: "We were 2 and a half hours late to Omaha. There were thirty planes ahead of us to take off in Chicago. Very long wait inside of the plane."
Cons: "Plan was late. Had to fix radio on plane. Dat on plane for 1 1/2 hours to get engine started. Never again"
Pros: "In flight "included wifi" is a joke. Spent 20 minutes trying to connect and the rest of the flight trying to load the "entertainment" page. Doesn't matter if you have the app, same thing happens. You're better off downloading whatever you'd like to consume prior to take off!"
Cons: "Wifi connection, pretzels, tiny beverage cups"
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Had to pay for wifi. Seems weird to advertise it and it's not included"
Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "A cat in a carrier was very loud and restless during flight."
Pros: "Business clas worth the money for this long trip"
Cons: "all was okay"
Pros: "I love United Airlines airplanes. They are roomy and comfortable. I don't like to fly, but I have to admit, I felt pretty good on these flights. I get scared when it's bumpy, but I guess that's just life in the air."
Cons: "There was a slight delay in Chicago (20 minutes), which is not much to complain about. I just wanted to get home."
Pros: "CHECKIN Is long and awful."
Cons: "Staff rude"
Pros: "The comfort of first class was very good."
Cons: "The flight attendant was working her tail off, but she was struggling to keep up with the first class passengers due to the limited time to get service items out."

Cons: "Was supposed to arrive in time for my speaking engagement - since I was the speaker, I was very upset I missed it!!!"
Cons: "2 hours late"
Pros: "I had excellent service, the employees were extremely nice and helpful. I use a wheelchair due to disability, so it's important to me to have someone take me from entrance to the gate and help getting on board. From the woman who helped me with getting me to the gate, the gate agent and flight attendants, I was very impressed with UA service today."
Cons: "Similarly, poor cabin staffing"
Pros: "I liked the cleanliness. The use of wifi was great."
Cons: "Didn't like that there was no tv access"
Cons: "Very rude steward. Sooooooo not his line ofnwork!"
Cons: "Had computer problems. All flights shut down. Will never fly United again"
Pros: "Crew was nice Smooth flight"
Cons: "Small plane Delayed flight"
Pros: "The flight is short and sweet and because of my seat assignment I didn't get a beverage until about 15 minutes before landing so the flight attendant said, "you don't have much time to enjoy it, so just enjoy it". That was just what i needed that day! Thanks United!"
Cons: "Delayed for a latch for 10min then 10 more then 30 in reality was around 1:30 plus when we finally bored the plane we got delayed again because they had to spray the aircraft because of the snow supposedly 5 minutes it took 25 My overall opinion about united airlines is: Never again Bad customer service"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "Quick and easy flight. Just over one hour from take off to landing. Both airports are easy to navigate."

Pros: "Take off and landing and overall flight was great. Flight crew were very friendly."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "Again, the food wasn't bad, persay, there was just hardly any time to justify food at all. Just a slightly crushed packet of snack that was almost entirely pretzel."
Pros: "We had no delays this time and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "While we arrived on time, we all waited 40 minutes to get our checked luggage at the end of the flight. United is not my first choice in airlines: they give the impression that they're giving the bare minimum and not really trying to make a good experience for the customer."
Pros: "The kindness of the staff."
Cons: "Having to go back to Denver because of a storm-in Omaha."
Cons: "The boarding gate changed but the gate information did not. I thought I would save money and time flying United at Ohare. That's a mistake I will never make again."
Cons: "Went all the way there turned around and came back"
Pros: "Seats were spacious, we were on time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hour and then canceled. 1.5 hour flight between Chicago & Omaha. Weather was gorgeous in both places. Will ever fly united again for this."

Pros: "departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "cost was high person next to me on the way there was rather large and made my trip uncomfortable - not trying to be mean just being honest"
Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "The fact that we had to get off due to too much fule,didn't make a lot of us comfortable..when it comes to flying,the whole team needs to be on the same page..makes flyers more comfortable..but things do happen.."
Pros: "Crew was nice but seemed tired or flustered. I could stow my backpack in overhead because it was a backpack, a true carry-on piece. Flight was short."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Boarding is always a pain. Airline calls boarding, everyone queues up and then it takes forever. Also they take to long boarding business class etc then many times they call a group # but allow passengers from other groups to board, not including people with disabilities, older passengers who need assistance."
Pros: "Other than having the plane replaced with one that worked, noting."
Cons: "The plane was gross, no actually nasty! Dirty, dirty, dirty. The cubby that holds the emergency latch was falling off. The window shade hardly worked. But more than that, the scum that caked the seats, window area and floor was UNEXCEPTABL!"
Pros: "The United Wi-Fi that I paid for with my frequent flyer miles and the free entertainment via the United App"
Cons: "The screaming kid kicking the back of my seat the whole flight."
