Pros: "The one gentleman who came to the RESCUE at the ticket counter was AWESOME!!! AMAZING customer service, friendly, and helpful - I had someone else but it was a pleasure watching him take care of others! (He was wearing a tobagan and ear muffs making him look like he had Mickey Ears on!)"
Cons: "Only 3 people handling check in - ALL of the self service machines needed a restock on bag tags so we were all in line for tags and the one attendant at the Bag Drop kept telling us all she couldn’t print tags. WORST experience at RIC in years!"

Pros: "Comfy seat, nice crew"

Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Staff was so kind and helpful."
Cons: "They ran out of a couple of the snacks, not a big problem but note worthy."

Pros: "The crew was exceptional. The seats are very uncomfortable. It feels like you are being packed in a sardine can."
Cons: "The airlines need to take into consideration, the Price that passengers pay for an airline ticket, only to be restricted in those uncomfortable positions on the average of 2 to 3 hours."

Cons: "Certain crew members could've been a bit more approachable and friendly."

Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"

Pros: "There was a hood vibe from crew. I believe the good nature of the crew had a positive effect on me and follow travelers. A pleasant experience."
Cons: "I can't think of anything that would have improved the experience."

Pros: "as expected"

Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"

Cons: "My bag was ripped open completely for all of my intimates to be exposed to the public."

Pros: "The boarding process was quick, seats were comfy, staff was very nice."

Pros: "Stewards were good."
Cons: "Mechanical problems and incompetent repair people who forgot to fill out paperwork delayed our flight by 3 hours. Because of this I almost missed my RESCHEDULED next flight and my bag was gate checked to baggage claim."

Pros: "Multiple delays. Ended up taking off after my initial anticipated arrival time. No snacks or food available on the flight either just made for a very poor experience."

Pros: "Excellent crew and friendly staff on flight."
Cons: "Due to re-evaluate cancellation priority given to guests the rebooking needs over guests needing to make requests about current flight."

Pros: "This flight crew were upbeat and all smile. They definitely know what customer service should be."
Cons: "Only pretzels for food when you’ve been on a plane all day didn’t make me happy."

Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"

Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."

Pros: "Flight loaded on time left on time and arrived on time. Crew were all very nice."

Cons: "Need better coffee"

Cons: "Bit of delay."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."

Pros: "On time and no hassles."
Cons: "Uncomfortable old dirty aircraft."

Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"

Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."

Pros: "It went very well."
Cons: "Np"

Cons: "Plane was delayed all day and when we finally boarded we were told it was due to an engine problem!! Not good!!"

Cons: "When will the airlines stop cramming so many people in planes with seats that are too cramped. Especially when you are on a regional flight, with a seat crammed in a corner that does not recline."

Pros: "Everyone was nice. Flight left on time an landed early."
Cons: "The front row for the exit is too small. The diagram i looked at said it was an exit row on the 2nd leg of my flight. It wasnt!! Uncomortable for my legs. Im 6'3"

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "They overbooked every flight of the day (total of 4) and offered us no solution except what as standby and try to get on next days flight. Very bad form and they were not helpful in finding a solution. we finally rented a car and drove home over 8 hours- still trying to get the rental car cost reimbursed....and oh yeah they completed tore apart my METAL GUN CASE!!!!"

Pros: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Airbus was nice and had charging capability at each seat?"

Pros: "Smooth flight on time."

Pros: "crew was great"
Cons: "delays"

Pros: "The pilot was great about keeping us up to date on the possible route change and exactly how long we would be sitting on the runway, new arrival time, etc."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 35 minutes with no offer of a beverage (though there was going to be beverage service). Then just before take off as the flight attendants were snacking in the back, we asked about a possible drink and they said the flight was going to be too turbulent to serve anything."

Pros: "Very friendly staff, clean airplane, great flight! Our original flight was delayed, but we still made it right on time for our connecting flight! I didn't realize when I was booking the flights that American lets you bring a carryon no charge, but United does not. You have to be a "Special" customer with them in order to be allowed a carryon, so we ended up paying an additional $50!!!"
Cons: "I was a little unhappy we were delayed, I had a meeting in Charlotte planned, but these things happen."

Cons: "Plane interior was really dirty"

Pros: "Planes were on time and staff was friendly"
Cons: "Nothing disliked"

Pros: "Great food, comfort, and smiles :)"

Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."

Pros: "The crew very helpful and nice."
Cons: "On the flight home my seat wouldn't let back, so I had to sleep in an upright position. Lol"

Pros: "Crew, clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed as we were pushing back from the gate."

Pros: "Boarding and meal"
Cons: "Service in first class and the heavy turbulence could of reached a warning from the pilot"

Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"

Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "All flights were on time or early and luggage made it to final destination with me."
Cons: "Wish they had another snack option besides just pretzels."

Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"

Cons: "Flight was so delayed we would have missed our connection and been stranded in DC overnight, so we had to push all our reservations back and missed a full day of our vacation."

Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."

Cons: "Personnel were unhelpful and not forthcoming! Very inconvenient with trying to reschedule to the next day! Felt as if no one really cared if we got there or not! No vouchers were offered for hotels or food!"

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"

Pros: "Plane size"
Cons: "Pilot driving way to fast"

Pros: "Also united forced me to check my bags because I got a basic economy flight will never use them again it cost an extra 50 dollars."
Cons: "Also united forced me to check my bags because I got a basic economy flight will never use them again it cost an extra 50 dollars. The one guy on board was creepy Newark airports eating system made me go to 3 different iPads one for food one for drink and one to pay. Just let me pay when I order!!! Also bad signage"

Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."

Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Nothing, good flight and no problems."

Cons: "Didn't make this flight either. Still in Dallas"

Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."

Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Houston had a 40 minute wait on the runway"

Cons: "Over an hr late departing :-("

Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"

Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"

Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."

Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. I had a layover and the connection was short but thankfully the staff was helpful. I will continue to do business with united."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. Snacks - coffee and stroopwaffle were MUCH better than what is typically available without cost."
Cons: "Engine noise made safety instruction and pilots commentary incomprehensible. Plane was equipped with wifi, BUT you needed to download an app to get access - which is a catch 22. Couldn't download the app because I needed wifi access, which I couldn't get without the app!"

Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"

Cons: "Flights were significanly delayed that resulted in missing connecting flights. During my return trip I ran to make my connecting flight just barely on time and once boarded we sat on the plan for an hour before taking off. Flight to get to Richmond on united was a major problem. I work up with a notification that my flight time had been moved up 2.5 hours ( a problem as I live 2.5 hours away from the airport) I called and they said it was a mistake that I was good to take the origional flight. A few hours later I get a phone call from united asking if I could be at the airport 2.5 hours early. I said unfortunately no because I had already spoken to someone from united and they had reassumed me that the origional flight was still good. She then said if I couldn't make it early it was no problem. So I get to the airport at the origional time after speaking to two different agents who told me this was ok to find the plane delayed and causing me to miss my missed connection."

Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"

Pros: "First time flying united. It was a little rough landing back in Memphis though. I'm not sure what that was all about."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great and took the time to care for passengers. One guy was suffering from a migraine and the flight attendants did all they could to assist the gentleman with his issues."

Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. Luckily no turblance. Crew members were helpful and courteous, and added a little humor to their jobs. Good job!"

Pros: "On time, good service"

Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"

Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."

Cons: "My name is Elizabeth and everything was OK"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "That I arrived to Memphis on time!"
Cons: "That the air isn't on until its time to board, instead of being a lil before its time to board."

Pros: "More comfortable"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence"

Pros: "Crew were great"

Pros: "The staff was wonderful."
Cons: "The return flight was delayed several hours however there were several emails updating the status of the flight."

Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."

Pros: "crew was friendly"

Pros: "It was good"

Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!! Kept changing gate numbers causing me to walk all over airport while having severe knee pain!! Very upsetting and painful"

Pros: "The entertainment on the app for movies is pretty cool but everything else sucks!!!"
Cons: "Never never never ontime. I can't trust your flights to get me where I need to go. 3 weeks in a row your 5:20pm out of Richmond, VA was late due to waiting on an aircraft. How can that be? You didn't fix the problem the first time? I won't be flying United unless something changes. You lost a customer for life"
