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: "Good on flight entertainment"
Cons: "Tried to select my seat 2 weeks out from flight. Was told by multiple delta employees I can only change at the gate. Was unable to change seat and ended up getting downgraded to middle seat middle row. Rude flight staff that barked at the passengers"

Pros: "Crew was exellent"
Cons: "The food quality needs to improve."

Pros: "Was upgraded to Comfort Plus after they had no seat for me on the plane"
Cons: "We booked with Virgin however flew with Delta and we were not alerted to this. We booked with Virgin for a reason. They also did not have seats for me when I went to check in on both flights and I had to negotiate seats before boarding. Very disappointing."
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours at LAX and even though we made it to the gate to fly out on our connecting flight they had given our tickets away and booked us on a flight 5 hrs later. They told us our bags would be transferred. They werent and now both my daughter and i are starting out a dream vacation with no l"
Pros: "The crew was great. Flight was on time. Although crowded, boarded went smoothly."
Cons: "Checking bags in Reno was a bit chaotic. Only one representative was there to assist when we arrived an hour before the flight. When others arrived to assist, people went directly to counter and were helped before those of us who had been waiting in line. My seat back screen did not work ."

Cons: "Not enough searband leg room"
Pros: "Not crowded?"
Cons: "It's a 6A flight from RNO to SLC meaning you are up really early to get to the airport, checkin and wait.

The exit row seating does help, but the seats didn't recline making it a bit more uncomfortable."

Pros: "spacious comfortable seats"
Cons: "I waited in line at Virgin Australia for 35 minutes only to be told that I was actually on a Delta flight even though my itinerary said Virgin Australia. good thing I was early to airport or I would of missed my flight because I had to go find Delta check in"
Pros: "Well, the seats and the lavatories are smaller than ever. And I am quite petite."
Pros: "Flight Attendant and great Boeing 737-800 was amazing"
Pros: "We traveled first class. Plane needs an update. Seats were not comfortable and did not work correctly. the crew had to continually pull the seat cushions up and reset the elec mechanism b"
Pros: "adjustable head rest is great - being given a pillow is great - the plane was not too cold to sleep either (as they often are)"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats that are far too close for tall peolle"
Pros: "nothing other than on time departure Ann's arrival"
Cons: "I specifically shopped carriers other than delta or united, tho my regret usa carriers have stopped offering comforts, service, quality food. Not sure how, but even though I bought virgin Australia ticket and flight, I ended up on delta. Terrible sitting, even though after I paid for tickets I was charged extra for more leg room and priority boarding, I got neither, they advertised free texts in flight, it didn't work either."
Pros: "Requested a special meal over the phone when I checked in i.e. 24 hours before talk off, customer support confirmed my request but the crew told me that they had not received anything as such....crew didn't even bothered to offer any alternative. I was fine, didn't have any reservations but my wife and kid went starving all the way remember it was a 15 hour flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Food above average. Plenty of entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is not the only airline to have planes with the new seat configurations in First Class but they are a big disappointment for tall passengers and couples who enjoy traveling together and cannot even carry on a comfortable conversation on a 15-hour flight."
Pros: "Crew were lovely, boarding wasn't too painful."
Cons: "Payed extra for a seat that was the seat I selected. Totally disappointed"
Pros: "Boarding reasonably quickly; able to find overhead storage for my roll-on even in Zone 3; departed on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight. MD-88 not as comfortable as the Airbus from Chi to Atl."
Pros: "Crew was stellar, very accommodating."
Cons: "Food was WAAAAY to salty. Needs some more flavor than just salt sad to say. Would be nice to be offered an entire can of soda not just a cup full of ice and a tiny amount of liquid. Charging for exit row swats? Cmon.... I'm 6 foot 5, why should a 5 foot 115lb woman get all the extra leg room but I canot?"
Pros: "Like the online check in and advanced seat assignment"
Cons: "It's only a 45 min flight so no ptoblems"
Pros: "We travelled Economy comfort which has extra leg room & recline, which is great for a long flight such as this. Food was ok, crew were great & there was a lot of good entertainment to watch? A nice smooth ride down to Sydney."
Cons: "Food wasn't so great & coffee as with most Airlines is terrible."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Everything! Flight late, seats to close, worst customer service in the skies!"
Pros: "Flight itself was mostly fine. Adequate overhead space. Boarding process ok."
Cons: "Adequate legroom but seat space so tight could not even reach things dropped on the floor. Seats are HARD! Some USB sockets didn't work. Entertainment system is old and clunky, often didn't respond to touches. Crew was grudgingly OK, didn't seem to want to be there to help. Food was a disaster. Special meals were all wrong. Food brought was mostly terrible."
Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."
Pros: "Very good and safe"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Easy bording"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the pilot decided to (after the doors were closed and ready to go) unload and reload cargo and board more people. So based on their decision, we were even further delayed and subsequently missed our connection in sydney. United has offered no compensation either for our change fee in sydney nor for the stress they added to our vacation - on a Christmas flight nonetheless!"
Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."
Cons: "The rubber chicken in first class was awful. Drinks and wine were good. Service was excellent."
Cons: "We had a 45 minute maintenance delay. After, there was a medical emergency (NOT the crew's fault) leading to an additional1.5 hr delay. I didn't appreciate how much the crew shared about the patient's status over the intercoms--felt like a violation. There were also numerous long comms throughout th"
Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."
Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."
Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"
Cons: "My baggage was lost."
Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"
Pros: "More space, better flight attendants, 3 free meals and free alcoholic beverages. It’s all good."
Cons: "Nothing, loved it."
Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"
Cons: "Seating is very tight and amenities are nada."
Pros: "On a recent trip it was very good to be in the new dreamliner and with staff that were enthusiastic and being able to deliver a good product, food and comfort wise was a big bonus. Thank you"
Cons: "i had no space & couldn’t move because passenger next to me should have been required to purchase TWO SEATS!!! I could not move entire flight & he had armrest up & took up my space & full plant so i could not move elsewhere. my neck is still killing me because i had to turn my head to stay away from his face. i will NEVER fly united again."
Pros: "Easy very organized loading."
Cons: "Really nothing"
Cons: "Very turbulent flight"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed leaving RNO, and the check-in agent moved my seat up to the front even though I had the new "Basic Economy" so I'd have a better chance running to catch my connection upon arrival. She also put my backpack in one of those plastic bags. DCA did not do the same for me."
Cons: "Small CRJ, so seats were smaller as expected. Short flight though."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In a decade of travel I've had three lost bags. Two of which were Air Canada. So I'm going to avoid them."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I am a small person, 5ft 4in 110lbs. The seats are not comfortable and very cramped."
Cons: "Flight turned out to be 3 hours total instead of 1 1/4 hrs because of delays at both ends"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac in Reno for half an hour because of flight control delay from SFO."
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Cons: "Every flight delayed 2 hours plus"
Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Flight out of Reno was delayed due to congestion / back up at LAX. Ground staff patiently helped all passengers reschedule connecting flights / explain options."
Pros: "It was quick but full"
Cons: "The tv broke"
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "One flight, we sat next to ssomeone with a cat in her lap that threw up and pooped the whole time. The second flight a drunk man yelled the whole flight."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Pros: "The courteous ticket agent at the counter in Reno-that's all."
Cons: "Getting stuck, having to change plans. SUCKS!"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable ride. Now I know what dinners feel like. Recently flew Delta and didn't notice discomfort like this."
Pros: "It got me to Boston!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats!"
Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."
Pros: "Did everything you scheduled and nice crew."
Cons: "On the 3 hour and 18 minute trip to NY in the coach section the seats have hard plastic armrests and a paded armrest would make your airline the cats meow. Give the coach section a little comfort please."
Cons: "The flight was over one hour late in leaving and while I appreciate that is beyond the control of the flight crew, one steward was quite rude as we were quickly trying to board as she prioritized serving the first class cabin rather than get us all on the plane. At the very least she could have used commonly acceptable language such as "please, thank you and excuse me" but rather chose to use "wait". As some of us where desperate to make a tight connection in SF, focusing on getting people on board and the plane off the ground should have been the crew focus."
Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"
Pros: "Nice assortment of movies"
Cons: "The chairs barely recline and my chair never stayed reclined. Crew was off putting. Not very friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."
Cons: "Food need more variety"
