Cons: "There was a leak from the overhead panel directly ahead of me. I had planned to do some reading on the flight, but after noticing the water was splashing on my paperwork I opted not to."

Pros: "Great selection of TV programs"
Cons: "I'm still annoyed that back in December I had a passenger throw chemicals on me that made me sick and that the flight crew could not be found to intervene. All I got was a $150 voucher. It made me very sick and caused permanent damage to my corneas (documented), but no one cared."
Pros: "That i made it home"
Cons: "This flight is always late. And the original arrival time is late to start with."
Pros: "They have always treated me right, love the direct tv and seats are super comfy!"
Cons: "After a three hour layover we were all set to board our jet when we were told that there were issues and would be delayed. After 2 hours they boarded us on an old propeller plane that was loud and uncomfortable. A man was forced to move from his seat in the front of the plane to the back because of weight balancing problems."
Cons: "Departure was delayed. No explanation. The boarding area is crowded and confusing. The plane's bins were too small for roller boards so passengers had to carry bags outdoors in snow and terrible wind, to get them loaded. The Newark airport where the plane landed was miserable! Departure from Newark was worse than landing if that could be possible! Awful!"
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Pros: "Telephone support was very good. Gate crew did what they could but United keeps them overloaded with very little discretion to actually do anything."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to mechanical problems for four hours."
Cons: "Loaded us all on the plane stowed our luggage all belted in they then announced a few minutes later to get off the plane because the pilot was still in Burlington Vermont and take luggage with us, including red tag luggage. Never should have loaded us when pilot not yet arrived. Plenty of irate customers."
Pros: "The staff were good."
Cons: "I didn't like how we left more than two hours late. United always pulls this kind of thing. The flight was overbooked, so we weren't going anywhere until people volunteered to take later flights. To allow enough time for someone to volunteer, aircraft maintenance was 'required', a scenario I have seen on a few other United flights. Honestly, I will never fly United again and am cancelling my future flights in favor of taking the train instead. It takes eight hours instead of a theoretical 1.5 hours, but at least it is reliable and not much worse than the ACTUAL time it takes to fly United. Worst airline ever. Barf."
Cons: "Not even beverage service. Water only"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "I liked that the crew tried their best to make sure that everyone was happy. Key word was tried"
Cons: "Everything almost we was delayed by almost 3 hours. Crew members kept giving us false hope for no reason"
Cons: "They kept pushing back take-off, pretending we were going to board, and then rambled into the microphone so no one could hear what they said."
Pros: "New crew"
Pros: "The flight started boarding early enough that we had no problem pushing off from the gate on-time. We arrived early"
Cons: "The baggage took longer to arrive that it took us to hike the considerable distance from the gate and then clear passport control."
Cons: "4 hour delay out of DC"
Pros: "It was fine for the most part. No frills, quick flight."
Cons: "With a tight connection, they should really at least sell snack boxes on these quick flights. By the time we arrived in ROC, all the restaurants were closed. Hungry humans."
Pros: "The staff were very professional yet friendly"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "That despite leaving late we arrived on time."
Cons: "The delays due to unorganization."
Pros: "The flight was short once we finally got in the air."
Cons: "Waited forever for plane to arrive. Waited for repairs. Once boarded, waited for more repairs. Supposed to leave at 12:30pm; left at 4:30pm."
Pros: "On time Fast Snoith"
Cons: "Seat was hell Boarding !!!!! The terminal was hot old confusing Even if local think about the wonderful new bus terminals that are being built Tech could go s long way Use apos to highlight boarding ligistics Location and direction sids Etc etc etc Dulles gets an F here"
Pros: "The entire duration of the flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The temperature was incredibly hot."
Cons: "Flight updates were terrible, non existent. The people by the gate were not helpful. My daughter had to check online for updates.Customer service over the phone was poor as well. No one knew what time the plane would board,etc. Terrible overall experience. Need to improve on communication with passengers."
Pros: "The gate was changed on flight to Houston twice in the last 12 hours, and gate was changed on flight back to Newark twice in the last 4 hours, making me late for boarding both flights. Note: I had no info available by phone or internet(had to rely on boards), and I was being transported by wheelchair."
Pros: "Was a good flight, quick and direct. Crew was polite and friendly."
Cons: "Too many people crammed into the space; same as most other flights though."
