My first plane had technical issues and never took off but after hours, the original flight just kept getting delayed and delayed without letting the customers have the updated information or rebooking them. I only made the Washington flight thanks to one lady TSA agent at the Asheville airport who personally retrieved my luggage from the grounded flight and brought them to the Washington flight. The flight itself was fine.
Pros: "The crew and the service was very good."
Cons: "Food could have been slightly better but can’t complain."
Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."
Pros: "Not the flights problem that I have sciatic issues and get very unconfortable, not going to lie I was more uncomfortable than I thought I’d be. Bathrooms were clean and staff was wonderful! Besides the long flight and my own back issues, great flight."
Cons: "If I upgraded to first class!"
Pros: "Short flight, not a lot of people. It was very quiet. Plane seats had plenty of leg room!"
Cons: "Unable to choose seat"
Pros: "You did everything possible to delay my connection so I would make my flight. I was so worried I made a wrong turn and missed it anyway."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac waiting for a gate and missing my connection. Sitting for 10 mins on Midland tarmac to burn off gas. What? I get it but, what?"
Pros: "Overall service at was very satisfactory on all the sectors. In-flight service was excellent. Lounges were good at Mumbai and Frankfurt. Pl. see my comments about United lounge at Chicago."
Cons: "I was denied an entry to the UNITED LOUNGE at Chicago Air port. The lady stated that this lounge is only for the departing passengers! She scanned my boarding card.and I said to her that I am departing to Detroit. She said I can enter if I am a GOLD card member or purchase a day pass for $59.00. I declined. I am under the impression that United is a partner of Lufthansa.and that they should honor the same Business class privileges as Lufthansa. I found it rather discriminatory act on the part of this particular employee of the United lounge at Chicago airport. Pl. bring it to the attention of the Lufthansa and United . I will appreciate follow up on this matter."
Pros: "the plane got me to chicago in one piece"
Cons: "United switched the aircraft shortly before takeoff and reassigned me to an uncomfortable aisle seat in the last row of the middle section of the plane. The seats were dingy, the back-of-seat TV monitors were grainy and of poor quality, the headphone jack for audio was old and not fully functioning."
Cons: "Customs bus at LAX was 30 minutes late picking us up from flight"
Pros: "Offered WiFi. Friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding took forever. Flight was late which caused me to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Honestly liked when the plane landed and I was able to get off."
Cons: "There was absolutely no room to be comfortable no shoulder width no leg room just terrible."
Pros: "very kind crew members and flight was an hour early."
Cons: "The worst food on an airline ever...witnessed so much waste all around me. No one could eat it. Entertainment broken and sound quality awful."
Pros: "Without a doubt, I will continue to fly United exclusively."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "When I was boarding the flight from Denver to Jackson the ticket agent was extremely hostile and rude. I was carrying a back pack and a small purse strapped across my shoulder which was maybe 4"x6". He shouted at me after I had handed in my ticket and started down the gangway that my purse needed to be in my backpack. I have never heard of such a thing in all my years of travel. I complied and started to put my purse into my backpack when he shouted at me "Ms. Derbyshire get back here now! You cannot be past the counter!" Your employee was rude, hostile and made me very upset as well as the other passengers waiting to board. Later other passengers who witnessed the event told me how upset they were. Sadly this is not the first time I have had issues with United. Clearly this type of behavior is in your culture. There is no need to shout at anyone."
Cons: "After the gates closed, an exit light broke and the staff took over an hour to fix it. Flight delayed."
Cons: "We were put on a different flight due to plane delay"
Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "Would have been nice to have more room"
Pros: "On time flight so can't complain about that. Flight attendant was funny, helpful and all around terrific"
Cons: "Tiny cabin and seats. Aisle barely wide enough to walk through. Had to crouch down (I'm 6'4"), and barely fit into my seat (I'm not overweight. Cabin was frigid as well."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Pros: "At the airport was a little confusion to get pass TSA . There was construction and no clear directions to get to the gates , what made the lines extra long and people getting confused."
Cons: "Long lines to get through security"
Cons: "One hour mechanical delay"
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked and I had a wonderful empty seat in the middle so that I could sit in the window"
Cons: "There was almost no legroom. Having to pay for entertainment for a 45 min flight."
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Pros: "Movies on personal device"
Pros: "Trip OK."
Cons: "If you need to cancel a flight wit Air Canada or Southwest you will have one year to use the cost of your flight as a credit. You must to be completely sure to fly with United. If you have to cancel, NO refund will be made. I try to change my flight to Canada and they impose a PENALTY of $200 per passenger!! (almost the price of each ticket). So, avoid United, unless you have no other choice."
Cons: "After you get used to Jet Blue, it's tough to fly with United where there is no inflight entertainment unless you bring your own gadget. There are no in-flight snacks other than a tiny bag of mini pretzels or over-priced "snack boxes" for purchase. For short flights this is fine, but for 5 hour flights, it's a bit stingy. The biggest frustration with United is the small space. If you are a small child, great, but for adults, it's just terribly uncomfortable. Truly a "herded animal" experience."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a few times , learned once i got to the airport flight was delayed .. and delayed 2 more times while on the plane .... They didnt know which way the bags were located ...(baggage claim or at the door way of exit of the plane )"
Pros: "The staff were great; despite maintenance issues they strived to keep updates shared as best as possible. Overall a good experience. Would have preferred to have been given a more definitive timeline rather than continual 10-15 minute late notices. In any event it was a comfortable flight with professional staff."
Pros: "All of the staff is very friendly and everything is taken care of in a timely manner"
Pros: "Staff was very helpful and courteous. Punctual flight."
Pros: "We sat on the runway for an hour. We shouldn't have boarded if there was a long delay."
Pros: "Boarding at the Midland airport was a breeze. Small airport, small plane, quick and easy boarding. Good plane - new Embraer jet. Enough room in economy even without Economy Plus. Good amount of time for a flight - not overly long. Friendly crew, standard service."
Pros: "This flight was canceled due to weather. We rented a car and drove back. During the drive we experienced very brief periods of drizzle rain. The weather radar showed no signs of bad weather in the area. I am all for safety but Is light rain really a valid reason for cancelling a flight, or was this more about a flight that was not fully booked?"
Pros: "Crew again was fantastic"
Cons: "Increase the length of your seatbelts"
Cons: "The fact I had to purchase an entertainment package when I didnt previous flights. I felt as if the airline was takeoff advantage of a technical glitch."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, no TVS & food was horrible"
Cons: "When we checked in at gate we learned my wife's reservation had been cancelled she was put on standby. The checkin agent was great. We discerned that when my wife boarded the plane in Des Moines the scanner did not read her boarding pass on her phone. So there was no record of her on the flight to Chicago which led to the rest of her trip being cancelled. Fortunately the United agent restored her reservation and put her at the top of the standby list."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The gate agent @ Fort Lauderdale was very professional and helpful."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The fact that we had a connecting flight to minot from Denver. Arrived late to Denver because of weather, but my stroller that I had left on the jetway in Seattle was never put on the plane which I didn't know until I got to minot. I was going to wait for it in denver, but I would have missed my flight to minot had I waited 5 more minutes. We arrived to minot only to find out that our 3 suitcases, one stroller and 2 car seats were never in the flight. Awful! And my connecting flight was even delayed an extra 55 min so I don't quite know where my things are."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. I wont bother letting you know how you ruined my day. Youre turning air travel a joke. The only thing mastered by you is security procedures. In the name of 20+ party we were, united is the worst ever and next time we will pay extra for a decent airline."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The only flight leaving Eugene that would get me to Dallas in time for an urgent meeting left at 5:25 am. The crew identified something in inspection that gave them a little concern, so they called maintenance to come and check it out to ensure we were safe to fly (which I very much appreciate). The issue I have is that over an hour passed (after the flight was supposed to leave), with them giving periodic updates that they had called maintenance and were waiting for them. Finally I asked the people at the counter, who were visibly embarrassed, where maintenance was coming from (this is an airport - shouldn't they have it onsite), and they conceded that maintenance was at the airport, but they had no idea where they were. This delay resulted in me missing my connection in Denver, which caused me to miss the meeting and the whole reason I was flying back to Dallas a day early for. I essentially paid over $400 for an extra ticket (I had to not use my one on Friday - because it was just cheaper to buy a separate one way ticket). I will never fly United again."
Pros: "Midland Airport was easy checking in, Excellent air crew from United Airlines. Bush Airport easy getting around. Great Flight all around."
Cons: "Very crowded feeling and I don't have claustrophobia. My seat in the very back couldn't recline because it was jammed in with less legroom than others around me."
Pros: "Fairly short flight"
Cons: "I didnt want to touch the little fold out table because i could see gunk and dirt in the cracks...also I didn't know I was going to be right next to the bathroom so I was graced with a lot of smells the entire trip :("
Pros: "Airbus is the best commercial way to travel"
