Pros: "Great to have in flight TV"
Cons: "the short connection screwed me"
Cons: "I was seated in first class, and due to some catering mix-up, no meal was served. I was given a banana and crackers which was very disappointing since I hadn't eaten in 8 hours and was starving. No on board entertainment whatsoever."
Cons: "Too crowded."

Cons: "The flight attendant was completely rude to me when I was getting a pacifier for my baby out of my luggage during boarding and all of the captains announcements were garbled, rapid and unable to understand."
Pros: "Overall, the flight was very smooth and I thought the crew did a great job."
Cons: "I know this is a federal regulation, but I have to mention it as it is part of the boarding process. For the life of me, I can't understand why it is necessary to go through security again after re-entering the country. Understandable that I have to go through customs, but going through security again is ridiculous."
Cons: "The plane was about 10 minutes late departing (not too bad), but the Entertainment System was down for the flight, meaning that in addition to entertainment, the USB and outlet charging was not working and you couldn't see current flight status."
Pros: "Entertainment, newer plane, great crew. and complimentary meal? fantastic."
Cons: "I checked in 12 hours in advance for both trips and was assigned a B seat toward the back of the plane for both, with no capability to select my seats in advance."
Cons: "not enough leg room and space. The business class should be at the minimum for economy. My standard carry on luggage did not fit the over head compartment."
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Pros: "Everything that British Airways tried to do to help us when Delta didn't want to take ownership for their screwups!"
Cons: "Not only did we miss our Delta connection but when Delta rebooked us on a British Airways flight they refused to help when British Airways could not access our tickets. they kept saying since it was Virigin Atlantic who we originally booked through that VA woulkd have to fix it, even thought Delta was the actual carrier and the ones that did the rebooking onto the British Airways flight"
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "Efficient and on time."
Cons: "I booked tickets well in advance but wasnt allowed to select seats at time of booking nor at 24 hour check in. This adds undue stress having to wait for an assignement at the gate."
Cons: "Because KAYAK reassigned my flight to airfare.com, I actually flew into JFK. Not my preference and the rebooking process was a nightmare. Very disappointed and I will not be using KAYAK ever again. So stressful."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Pros: "Gate agents were nice, crew was ok"
Cons: "but we could tell they were not happy with something and it's hard to hide that in the way you speak to and treat your passengers."
Pros: "No issue. Everything was good."
Cons: "Not much. Everything was good."
Pros: "Plane should have been inspected before scheduled departure at 5:30 AM!"
Cons: "Narrowest bathroom I have ever entered! I weigh 120 lbs!"
Cons: "The temperature on the flight was super warm. I was uncomfortable. I was told that with Layover I would receive my check in bag for Hotel stay. the attendant took a discription of my luggage for other united employees to tell me it would take 3 hours to retrieve my luggage. They didn’t even try to look for it or help me. Then what’s the point of taking my discription down? Now I have to stay at a hotel with nothing on me. So ridiculous and rude."
Cons: "They boarded us in spite of the fact that the flight had been delayed 40 minutes. We were all getting alerts on our phones but were told to disregard it and board anyway. We then had to sit on the runway for 40+ minutes until we could take off. Since we were traveling with two small children, it would have been preferable to spend those extra 40 minutes in the terminal rather than on the plane."
Pros: "Pleasant, uneventful flights."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The effort of the crew to do as much as they could. Even at basic econ fare. Profits dictate. People are crammed as much as possible. We felt like folding chairs. But what can be done?"
Cons: "See above"
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: "The flight attendant was very sweet and helpful."
Cons: "Every.single.time I take this flight we sit and wait for upwards of 30 minutes for someone to be available to park/unload the plane. The wait is so consistent it’s ridiculous."
Pros: "Hearing progress and warnings of turbulence ahead, everything else great - flight attendants especially."
Pros: "Great service, quick and easy!"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Then for 2 of the 3 meals they missed even serving some rows entrees."
Pros: "No problems to deal with"
Cons: "It took 35+ mins for bags to be unloaded in claim area. And I was 1st class!"
Pros: "The attendents at the gate were friendly and very helpful."
Cons: "No friendly welcoming when boarding the plane. Male flight attendants should be working elsewhere. I watched them being rude to United customers."
Cons: "Plane as dirty and dislike direct tv"
Pros: "Upgraded Business Economy was much nicer than regular Economy. The flight got in to Tampa early."
Cons: "Bathroom not maintained during flight. Vomiting child seated behind us (which I know was not the airlines fault, it was gross though)."
Cons: "We waited an hour and a half for de-icing in Bozeman and I nearly missed a connecting flight in Denver"
Pros: "This was good, a pleasant and comfortable experience."
Cons: "WiFi was not free"
Pros: "The flight to Indy was not full. The crew did a great job of spreading people out so that everyone would be more comfortable. Everything went smoothly and even landed early"
Cons: "Being jostled by carts and people walking by"
Pros: "Very little. The crew were grumpy and barely gave any service beyond what they had to do. They grunted "Chicken or fish" and "What beverage do you want" and basically threw the food and drinks at the passengers.."
Cons: "Almost everything..."
Pros: "Informative Gate Attendant Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "I couldn't take my computer bag on board and had to empty it because of the small space overhead. Bozeman airport was very nice. Easy to maneuver in the airport."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, flight was on time, all was OK. Nothing to recommend particularly. d"
Cons: "Few choices in beverages and food. No decaf or green tea or coffee except instant coffee. "Snack" was nothing much."
Cons: "Way overcharge for 3rd bag -$150 for single relatively small bag!"
Cons: "Getting bags checked was a nightmare in Bozeman with United. Way understaffed behind the counter. This is a typical problem in Bozeman at Peaks."
Pros: "Magazine was worth reading"
Cons: "Boarding process is broken. They start boarding on time, 50 minutes before the flight, but the group system they use doesn't get people on efficiently. Both legs of the flight took over an hour before the plane was remotely ready to move."
Pros: "The seating seemed a bit more spacious~very much appreciated!"
Cons: "Connecting flights so close together we barely made it to the gate. Crew wasn't as friendly. An uncomfortable 5.5 hour flight to say the least. I'll pay extra to fly American again next time."
Pros: "On time. Comfortable"
Pros: "Good solid trip. No issues and went smooth. Your team Was good both ways."
Pros: "I like being able to use the United App,"
Cons: "I don't like having to pay for all entertainment in the headrest tvs. The app is much more convenient."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight. Good personnel, friendly. Seats were OK, managed to get some rest."
Pros: "Warm friendly competent staff."
Pros: "Employees were very nice"
Cons: "Seating very cramped I'm six foot one maybe you guys should look at JetBlue"
Pros: "smooth check in, effortless boarding"
Cons: "1/3 of a soda can for a drink? Just give the clients a can for heaven's sake! too short a flight for much but the snacks are pretty tiny"
Cons: "IT system outtage, grounded all domestic flights"
Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"
Pros: "Left out of Houston a hour late."
Cons: "They charge me to much for my second baggage($70)"
Cons: "Hard to sleep, turbulence"
Cons: "Entertainment system was extremely poor. Need app to use it so I didn't preload onto my iPad but tried to use iPhone instead and the streaming was just so poor and kept freezing that I just gave up and read a book. Also selection should have included a lot more shorter programs that could be viewed on less than 2 hour flight eg lifestyle programs, news etc."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Luggage lost or left in Chicago with meds including insulin, had to stay in motel in Portland, ME to wait for morning flight. Hope luggage is on that flight. He needed his meds and only wanted to help when they said there was too much baggage. Mr. Perrin had only one carrying with everything in it. The flight itself was fine and he had good aisle seats and wheelchair at all points, but the lost luggage with the important meds caused a problem. We hope United found it."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lots of selection for movies."
Cons: "Drink service was so slow. Literally had to beg for drinks"
Pros: "The plane."
Cons: "Travelling with a nine week old: no add on seatbelt (as per QANTAS) for lap sleeping, paid for an extra seat we didn't realize we were buying. The food has not improved in the last decade in contrast to other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Checking in. We did it electronically When we went to the counter to give our bags extra staff were talking with each other about trying out to be a stripper. No hello. No smile. Just looked at our info and took our checked bags. We pay more for tickets and bags and are getting less service. It is time to bring back customer service"
Pros: "Held flight from Chicago to Harrisburg so we could make connection. Arrived MDT only 30 minutes later than original schedule."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Unfortantely their was a mechanical problem that delayed the flight. I understand that failures occur, but only having one mechanic available to work this problem is not good. What happend to the two person concept when working on critical aircraft systems? Pretty hard landing at Chicago."
Pros: "New seats (more room & comfort) & movies"
Cons: "No food no wifi"
