The flight staff were polite, seats were comfortable, and we reached our destinations on time. This was my first time traveling first class since the pandemic. The difference in service was dramatic and made me seriously regret having paid three times more for a first class ticket. Specifically No Sky Cap lounge - One of the main reasons I traveled first class was to use the Sky Cap lounge since we were going to have to wait for our flight for several hours at PDX. PDX Sky Cap would not allow us to enter as first class passengers. The receptionist said we needed to have their American Express Card. Further the Las Vegas Sky Cap lounge is permanently closed. Food - Our first flight was early in the morning, so I thought no need to grab breakfast in the airport, I'm traveling first class. The only food we were served or offered between LAS and PDX was Biscoff cookies. Our return trip was the same. Seems the days of being served a hot meal in first class are long gone.

Pros: "Crew was great, very generous with snacks and beverages, and prior to boarding we were able to switch flights and seats without problem. All the Delta agents were extremely helpful, and had great customer service!"
Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."

Pros: "Pilot was super nice and informative when the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."

Would not check ticket name vs profile name. Happened two consecutive flights. Flight tomorrow morning has no TSA Pre clearance on boarding pass. This will be three consecutive flights. Also seated me next to a person who needed 2 seats to himself. Please never seat me next to a passenger who cannot fit in their own seat. I am switching to SWA."
Pros: "How they take off and land"
Cons: "The price versus other companies"
Cons: "Delta airlines has very poor costumer service. THE WORST I HAVE EXPERIENCED. I wasn't the only one feeling this way, I witness a couple people fighting on the phone like me. When my 1st flight was delayed I asked to be rebooked then and the delta employee insisted that I would make my connection. I didn't make it. This is not all. I could have gotten to a near city several hours after but on the same day, but the mediocrecy of this employes did not allow me to get there until the next day at 7 am. Happy new year to me. This two women (or one of them) on the phone, lied to me. There was an option to get me here and one of them failed to do their job right AND LIED TO MY FACE ON THE PHONE. Just unacceptable. I will sue them, I had an under age waiting for me in Cancun and a pet with me!. With no food or access to do its necessities. AND THERE WAS AN OPTION THAT "they missed" on porpuse."

Pros: "The interior of this Boing 757-200 was New with a great entertainment system in the seat backs in economy, and the crew was free endlessly and attentive."
Cons: "The APU was inoperative, so the flight departure was delayed 40 minutes awaiting a ground start unit to get the engines going. It took,me some time to convince my fellow passengers that the loss of the APU was not a safety-of-flight issue. Also, a humongous passenger waddled down to our row and wedged herself into the window seat just before the doors closed. She immediately wanted to raise the seat divider, claiming that it was uncomfortable. The middle seat passenger insisted that she wanted to have it down, correctly pointing out that she had paid for a whole space. Despite the seat divider, the obese person's body oozed over and below into the middle seat during the flight, cramming the middle passenger. These folks Need to buy a second seat..."

Pros: "Nothing...I missed this flight due to negligence, miscommunication, and incompetence by the front desk agents."

Pros: "We landed 45 minutes early!"

Cons: "I never got there."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants were dis-engaged. No smiles. Not pleasant. RUDE to those wairing for bathroom. Not polite nor particularly helpful. Could not understand pilot at all. No one could dicipher his message. NO emtertainment without extra cost... on 4 1/2 hour flight!! Shame on you United! BOOO. Hardly anyone paid for entertainment. Very boring and hard flight. Will give another airline my $500 next time. Everyone who buys a cross-country ticket should get free entertainment. NO food except one cookie on 4 1/2 hour flight. Are you kidding?? I was starving! A small snack-meal was expected for the high cost we pay for ticket. BOO UNITED. UNTIL UNITED PUTS CUSTOMER SERVICE AND COMFORT FIRST... I and my family will be flying another airline. Very very disappointed."
Pros: "United and American Airlines are subpar at best. I had a poor experience with rude staff and the seats were VERY uncomfortable."

Cons: "the flight attendant had way too many announcements. Her script was too long."
Cons: "I didn’t like being told I couldn’t use the restroom in front because it was for 1st class only. I was in a wheelchair and dealing with spine issues which made it very difficult to walk at all. Then on my flight home from GR the flight ended up being 3 hrs late. I was in terrible pain."

Cons: "no food, no entertainment, tiny squished seats"
Cons: "Flight was late, at the end they told people to hurry up so they can be on their way with the next destination"
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination."

The flight attendant neglected to look my way when picking up discarded trash, (I raised it up when she passed me - she was looking the other way and raced up the aisle), so I sat with my trash during the final 30 minutes of flight (and additional 20-25 minutes waiting for gate)"

Pros: "Very good experience"
Cons: "My seat doesn't recline, on top of being as comfortable as a rock. Passenger in front of my threw their garbage everywhere"
Pros: "punctuality, crew"
Cons: "seats on EMB175 are just not meant for flights longer than an hour. Absolutely no low back support on a firm seat flat as a 2x4 makes for a miserable experience, particularly after a previous intercontinental flight."
Pros: "They were always very attentive to let you know about gate changes or seat changes. Which to me personally is very important. I have had very bad experiences with other airlines in the past because they did not communicate properly their gate change and I missed my flight and missed events I was flying for. Excellent job to United for communicating gate changes very well! They did not break any of my luggage and the seats were fairly comfortable. The employees were also very attentive and willing to answer any questions."
Cons: "It was a bit confusing gate wise. I did have to ask an employee what was going on but they cleared up the confusion pretty quick. I flew on a jet verses a regular plane, and it was very loud. I had my movie turned up all the way with headphones and I still could barely hear it. It wasn't the fact that I couldn't hear my movie but in general it just hurt my ears. I was sitting towards the back of the jet though so I'm assuming if I was closer to the front it wouldn't have been as bad? Overall it was still a great experience"
Pros: "Extra leg room, larger plane"
Pros: "Flight was great, liked getting the reminders to pre check in 24 hours ahead."
Cons: "We got moved from United to American Airlines because United overbooked out first flight. We finally landed in SLC 8 hours later than we were supposed to only to be told that they had left out luggage in Chicago. It is now a week later and I still don't have my luggage! This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had!"
Cons: "She missed this flight due to her first flight from Little Rock getting cancelled."
Cons: "Could not make seat assignments for second leg of trip on line , had to wait until boarding agents to a rive 45 minutes before flight. Did not get assigned seats until most passengers were seated. They did get us is eats but not together !"
Cons: "I HAVENT EVEN GOTTEN THERE YET!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick once it happened"
Cons: "Both of my united flights were delayed due to crew issues, one they were stuck in traffic, we'll they should leave early like we do. The next they were late for some clearance issues. The seats on this air craft were very thin and uncomfortable, you could feel the metal."
Cons: "We paid for first class seats from Houston to Salt Lake City, thinking it would be provide us more than a regular seat. It did not. We received one drink and were allowed to pick from a basket of snacks (packaged pretzels and cookies), but that was it. No additional food, no entertainment options on our plane, no blanket, no pillows, no hot towels. We basically paid all that extra money for a little bigger seat. It was not worth it. This was our first time flying with United in a while and it will definitely be our last."
Pros: "Sat in the middle seat had never done that before,hopefully wont get to do it again. Did not bring head phones or did not know to ask for them would of liked to watch some TV but my bad. Everything went smooth enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "Did not have head phones !!"
Cons: "New plane but uncomfortable seats that don't lean back... There was only one attendant for the entire business and economy class cabin... The first class had an attendant but only one for the rest of the ENTIRE plane! There was a TON of turbulence and we never heard ONCE anything from the attendants or the pilots about the bad weather! Scared and uncomfortable the entire flight!"
Pros: "So please tell me how it is you publish on your reader board need to park time and then you leave before that without indicating it to anyone"
