Delayed flights leading to incredibly tight connection times, staff inconsistent with messaging re the source of the delay, zero compassion for customers, offering $700-$1,400 to get off the plane when you charge $200 to change a flight 2 weeks in advance is especially galling! Will not fly with United again whenever there is a viable alternative to my destination.

The crew was super attentive and cordial.

United Airlines has really deteriorated. Paid entertainment for an international flight is really nickle-and-diming it, especially since it was direct tv which is only available over the continental US!

Never took that flight as I missed the connection. It is a shame how things are done. I had 1.30 min of layer. If it was organized properly I had way enough time to catch the plane but the immagration doesn't care about the time of your flight. No one helps you anywhere. Then I was sent from one place to another before finally finding someone who knew what to do. And course no apologies at any moment

Reminded me of what a pleasure flying was 15 + years ago. Copa had a great inflight movie (personal preference) included with the cost of the flight. Dinner was okay, but they served wine with it which made it better, also included with price of the flight. They did offer headphones for those that wanted/needed then for the inflight movie, once again included with the price of the flight.

The flight attendants were not overly nice. Typical flight to Orlando with A LOT of young children, but the one constantly kicking the back of my seat was one of the worst experiences of my flight history (not the airlines fault).
