Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a mechanical issue so we missed our connection. Still in the states a day later trying to get to Paris."
Pros: "We got our money back."
Cons: "The brakes locked up on the taxi-way and we were taken off the plane after 2 hours and returned to the terminal. After 2 hours and lots of maybes the plane was towed back to the terminal where it was repaired and ready for reboarding. By then we had cancelled the flights for all 7 of us."
Cons: "Very crowded and had to take the rear seats but otherwise OK."
Cons: "The flight crew’s non challent attitude"
Pros: "There were too many people. It seems United is trying to put more seats to make more money. Giving more uncomfortable to passengers."
Cons: "The company forced me to put my luggage out of the plane, which I found strange. On my first flight in this roundtrip they let me have my carry-on without any problems. If they are going to have policies, they should be standards and they should stick to one thing instead of doing different things in different flights."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system not working."
Pros: "I try to fly with Lufthansa every time I travel to Turkey. They never fail to be great! Their service is very good. Their airplanes always seem to be new or kept up very well."

Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours, so I was unable to make my connecting flight. I am ending up landing in Portland about 5 hours after my original landing time. I will be missing part of a conference that I paid for. Major disappointment. The lady that helped me at first literally had me making an unnecessary stop, and arriving another 2 hours later, and I STILL would have missed my second flight due to the delay of the first fligh. Thankfully Michelle was very helpful, and switched me over to American Airlines"

The same attendant was very rude to a family with a small child and a man trying to put away his baggage at the start of the flight. I will avoid united in the future if possible."
