Terrible experience. Terrible service with inconsistent information and lack of willingness to help."

All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."
Pros: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Cons: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Cons: "The United plane was coming in right at the time copa departed. The copa plane sat there for half hour with door closed. Could have made connection. Then COpa put me on a flight to Buenos Aires which is six hours away from Rosario and did not provide any connection from Buenos Aires to Rosario. Don’t take this flight, the 1 hr connection time from IAH to Panama to Rosario is not enough time to allow for delays and COpa is a BAD partner to United as it refuses to wait for the United flight to arrive."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Flight was on time. It was my connection flight, arrived from Mendoza ARG and continued to Toronto. In Mendoza I got boarding pass for second leg of flight (Panama - Toronto) with the gate number and boarding time. Everything was correct, not even gate number changed.

Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."

Cons: "Neither flight had individual TV screens, and a vegetarian option was not available by default-as it had been on the flight there."
Pros: "Crew was courteous, and very polite."

Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"
Cons: "The crew, and the plane is very old not fit, for a such,long flight"
Pros: "Leaving the plane when it landed."
Cons: "Second time in a five day span where i didn't have a seat because they overbooked and over sold. The first time resulted in a two day delay and they tried to blame my connecting flight when , in fact, they had oversold the flight. The reps at LAX were horrific. The only She was awful. manager refused to talk to me about the issue as she had other customers to take care of...devil spawn. No help. I had to call the online number to get another flight and they tried numerous times to talk to her but she refused. Yet, I would see devil spawn on her phone laughing and joking and talking... but too busy to help the consumer. She was awful. Horrible."

Pros: "Overal a good experience"

Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."

Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "Stewardess were not very friendly. Plane apparence inside was not updated needs overall refurbish Having to pay extra for 1st luggage and seat selection"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"
Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Pros: "I liked the ease of the gate for the airplane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The airline did not offer a complimentary headphones, and failr sure the wifi was not even working. Also was not that big of a fan with the extra long layover. Was not a fan of the extra time in the holding pattern above Indianapolis, nor the extra time 150 feet from the gate after we landed."
Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."
Pros: "Clean, quiet, nice staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "A little bumpy"
Cons: "The gate the flight was originally on changed, however there was never an announcement made over the intercom advising of the change. When the gate I was waiting at finally showed the flight information to Toledo, I had to find what gate I my flight was now on and had fifteen minutes to make it to the correct gate. Had the original gate displayed the new information any later I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "Great announcements by lead flight attendant."
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Pros: "Except for comments under what I didn't like. AA experience was O.K."
Cons: "The restrooms needed cleaned better. Big airplane lots of people, needs cleaned before, during, and after. Had to pay for the Wi-Fi, that I used for 30 min, basically for E-Mail."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was how polite and helpful the staff was at the airport."
Cons: "The flight attendants both seemed unhappy and we're not very polite. They hardly came through the cabin at all. It took a while to get anything. They mostly just stayed in the back talking to each other. The pilot didn't greet us. Just stood there when we walked in. And there was a kid screaming for most of the trip. My seat was broken and wouldn't recline. This was my first trip flying, and on the trip to Miami I flew with Delta. The service with them was tremendously better. I was really disappointed."
Cons: "Sat on the ground for an hour."
Pros: "I was shocked to finally get a snack. Seems like years since that happened. And we arrived in Indy thirty minutes early!"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly delayed."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Boarding was not good!"
Pros: "I really like the crew on this flight, they were very polite and very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding again same comment as above. Comfort was good because I had paid for an upgrade which I actually thought I was paying for the international flight but found out it was actually for the Charlotte flight which was a surprise it was not very clear from the tool. So hence the Comfort was great on this flight. But the tool needs to make it much more clear as to what you are selecting the upgrade for. Food, there has got to be something else out there other than pretzels, I understand why we do not have peanuts, but a little bit more variety would be very nice. I understand there's a cost tractor, but often pretzels tend to be fairly stale. Short flights entertainment."
Pros: "I missed my flight due to LA traffic. American Airlines was very accommodating. They put me at ease and helped reach my destination. I wasn't treated like it was my fault. They totally understood and were very compassionate. Thank you."
Pros: "No complaints. Love American!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was high spirited, funny, and very attentive!"
Cons: "Delayed due to crew member not arriving. They boarded half the plane before realizing and then made those individuals de-plane and re-board again."
Pros: "Trip was quick bags came quickly also and everyone very nice!!"
Cons: "Cost of everything in airports!! Ridiculous!!"
Pros: "The crews not responsible for AAs garbage corporate policies, and were empathetic"
Cons: "No pilots, and mechanical issues."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the plane was new."
Cons: "The seats are entirely too close together. If I wanted to be crammed in uncomfortably close to the seat in front of me, I would have chosen a budget airline like Spirit. I am not a large person by any means in terms of height or weight, and I cannot imagine how anyone who is relatively tall could ever be comfortable on your airline. Will not likely book again."
Cons: "this was the first time a I have traveled to the US and I was stranded at the Louisville airport after the flight diverted due to bad weather. I was offered no alternative transportation to Indianapolis. I was totally lost being in a strange city without support. finally I had to take a taxi which was very expensive"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and caring."
Cons: "The plane is old and uncomfortable. The bathrooms are dirty and the storage space limited"
Pros: "I somehow made it to IND"
Cons: "Everything. I had to be transported by an old unsafe looking bus to a separate terminal and had to climb up and down emergency stairs (not handicap friendly), also I have 2 roller bags I carry on to every flight I have ever taken without issue and they charged me $25 per bag to check because it was a "snug" fit into their dimension box. Also gave no snacks and only half can refreshments, no entertainment."
Pros: "Great service with low prices!"
Pros: "They came around and offered drinks twice, and I asked for a cup full of ice and a cup of orange juice, and they provided it with a smile. Even though the flight was full, there was ample room for everyone's carry on luggage in the overhead compartments. Very pleasant flight overall"
Cons: "I was not unhappy with any part of the flight. Oh, one thing, the PA system was defective, so all you got was static and feedback, but they kept using it, even though you couldn't hear them at all."
Pros: "Partial the crew."
Cons: "Change the management. Worst customer service ever."
Cons: "Will never book a trip with you"
Pros: "They were very kind and helpful when my daughter became unexpectedly ill during the flight, bringing cold wash cloths, ice etc, and they checked in on her regularly until landing. Much appreciated!"
Cons: "Departure and arrival was late."
Pros: "everything went by fast, a lot of turbulence but the pilot kept us in check the entire time."
Pros: "Staff very accommodating."
Cons: "Same entertainment as last flight."
Cons: "Ended up missing this connecting flight to Calgary . Our plane left 45 minutes late from Phoenix because of a gas spill so when we got to Vancouver from Phoenix, we had to go through customs which took extra time. When we first landed in Vancouver and before we even got off the plane, we had 5 minutes to board onto our next flight which obviously was not going to happen. We rushed through customs and still might have been able to board our flight at the last possible minute except the staff at the airport led us to somehow get out of the secure area and have to go through security again before going to our gate. That took so much extra time. This never should have happened. When you get off the plane and have a connecting flight, there is always a way to get to the gate to board without having to go through security again. When we finally made it to our gate for our connecting flight, our plane had left and we were told to go to the air canada service desk. There was about 10 to 15 of us that had missed our connecting flight because of this so the 2 staff at the desk were trying to help us all but had to wait for their manager to come and confirm they could give us another flight which took quite a bit longer than I thought. We ended up getting booked on standby on a flight straight from Vancouver to Saskatoon in 2 hours which was our final destination, but never was told that because of all this headache, we should have grabbed our luggage. We thought our luggage was going to go on without us on the flight we missed but apparently if you do not get on your flight they don’t send your bags which makes sense. We also had thought for a second that maybe our luggage didn’t go on the flight from Vancouver to Calgary but if it didn’t then someone would most likely put it on the flight to Saskatoon. We should have asked about it but they should also have mentioned it when we were in a panic. And I understand you can’t put extra people on a flight that is booked, but what if the plane we were on standby for was full and we had to wait even longer .. could have taken us a day to get home when this wasn’t our fault we missed our flight, but was air Canada’s."
Pros: "I like the courteous crew members, very cordial & attentive."
Cons: "The long wait on the aircraft after all passengers and crew were on board waiting for the oxygen tank to arrive."
Pros: "price, flight wasn't full, water offered through cabin between meals"
Cons: "No menu of food description before meals. Only get choice of beef or chicken"
Cons: "I am still in Toronto, just made it to the hotel. Due to a strike the luggage could not be checked for custums. I won't be able to fly home to Indianapolis till 12:35pm tomorrow"
Cons: "I did not make this flight. Instead was re-routed and spent 12 hours overnight in the Vancouver airport before getting to fly to Portland, without my luggage that was left behind in Toronto."
Pros: "I thought the crew was nice, and I was glad to have an easy flight."
Cons: "I thought it was a bit odd to not be given a seat assignment until after zones 1, 2, and 3 had been boarded. It seemed like the other passengers and myself who needed assignments had been forgotten about."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 3 hours. The delay was announced after we had boarded and sat in the plane. Not acceptable. For the delay all that was served was water after about an hour, and pretzels and soft drink after two hours. Not acceptable."
Pros: "4 hour mechanical delay."
Cons: "First flight to LA flight was delayed 7 hours from Calgary to LA on the way back flight was delayed again but from 1 hour what made missed my flight from Calgary to Edmonton when we finily landed in Edmonton my luggage was lost worse flight ever"
Pros: "Flight crew were friendly"
Cons: "Ground staff were terrible and the ground crew mysteriously disappeared. Air conditioning was not working on the flight while it was on the ground. All passengers sweating for an hour on the tarmac. Flight arrived 2.5 hrs late resulting in a missed connection."
Cons: "Super noisy and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "I liked nothing. Lech Grabinski"
Cons: "my flight was late by 3 hours, lousy airplane, no service, no food, never again on Air Canada, even for free, Lech Grabinski"
Cons: "The flight was delayed about an hour and a half, only after some time at the gate they explained it on the mic.I had a connection flight, and before landing they mentioned there will be agents helping those with upcoming connections to catch them up due to the delay, but those people just pointed me in the general direction of the gates. I had to ran all over the airport, confused after the terrible long flight, and since it was my first time there. I made it at the last second, they changed my seat without my permission and didn't have enough room for my bag so I had to check it. The general attitude of the crew was reluctant at best.The food was mediocre, like what you would have gotten in a flight 10 years ago, and they gave beef to people who asked for chicken. I wanted to be more cool about it, but it was a terrible flight in every Aspect, and I never even got an apology or a follow up."
Cons: "Actually I flew from Buenos Aires to Vancouver on Air Canada. I had paid to prebook my seats both on the B.A.-Torononto leg and also Toronto to Vancouver. Did not get either of the seats I had paid and prebooked. Therefore Air Canada is taking money but not providing the service or product...... technically this is stealing"
Cons: "We missed our flight. OK, our fault. Any attempts to contact the airline were unsuccessful. They did not have an office in the airport and the numbers we were given at the information desk to US, Canada, or the local representative were not responsive. We ended up buying tickets for another airline. We were lucky to get the last minute fares for $630 one way. Air Canada's price was over $6,000. An e-mail from the airline reminding of the check-in time would have prevented all this."
Pros: "The Air Canada ground and flight crews did the best they could in a bad situation."
Cons: "Where do I start? Maybe by saying that I'm really not a complainer. I'm really not. I know there are understandable, although not always pleasant, occurences and situations that cause or contribute to things. But this shuttle flight was a disaster of poor airline planning. The 1.5 hour flight kept getting delayed again and again and again. The assigned gate got changed 4 times and we found ourselves having to walk with our bags from one to another. It finally took off at 12:30 at night with an ORIGINAL departure time of either 8:40 or thereabouts. You're talking about a 4 hour delay. Weather? Raining, but nothing that was serious. It was just, well, raining. No explanation was ever given for the delay although, uhh, complimentary bags of pretzels were handed out. I felt bad for the ground and flight crew. They had to deal with us less-than-pleased passengers and, really, the delay was beyond their control. Which leads me to believe poor scheduling by Air Canada of available planes was a reason. It was all very, very bad and, given a previous flight 10 days ago that took 5 hours instead of the scheduled 1.5, we'll never use Air Canada again."
Cons: "We missed this connecting flight"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Shirt fight, friendly attendants, provided entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing in particular. Everything was adequate, though the carry on space was limited."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Long delay while a new crew was flown to Toronto. Has root cause of original delay been identified and steps taken to ensure it doesn't happen again?"
Cons: "Air Canada closed the door ten minutes before departure although the knew we were in the terminal trying to get to the gate. Air Canada charged us $315 for a flight two hours later."
Pros: "Breakfast and lunch filling and tasty with good options. Attendants came around often."
Cons: "Multiple glitches in flight- Some entertainment systems did not work, so the pilot had to do a reboot of whole system for 20 minutes. One overhead compartment would not close, had to divert bags somewhere else. Planes need a major upgrade to entertainment equipment. view screens are 20 years old, the touch screens don't work on the first try because its such old underpowered tech. Safety demonstration props missing."
Pros: "The seating is too squished.If you have long legs, their toast"
Pros: "Everything was average."
Cons: "Not all food available on the food catalog menu."
Cons: "Staff was rude, Flight attendant was not. Very bad terminal-small, packed, no seating, no help. I was using w/c help but was passed from one person to another, was left at gate with no help to get to another gate or anything. I had suitcase, bag AND a w/c to manage by myself. Difficult to get to bathroom let alone try to get anything to eat or drink( so I didn't). Delays x3. Staff didn't know what was going on. (Other flights also) couldn't hear announcements."
Cons: "Food was bad,"
Cons: "Air Canada lost my luggage, customer service was very vague and unhelpful, did not get my bag back for almost a week."
Pros: "Movie selection Crew was kind"
Cons: "Check in was over 45 min Space between seats: I'm 6" 3" and leg space was a problem Food was mediocre"
Cons: "My biggest complaint regarding air Canada is the poor service and indifference typically exhibited by their service staff."
Cons: "Delayed 20 minutes"
Pros: "the whole process was great. staff at the airport and in flight were all friendly and helpful."
Cons: "almost all planes were delayed...this one was delayed by 2.5 hours. After being up for 20+ hours traveling from abroad, it was a bad experience to have to wait so long for planes to arrive for last leg of journey"
Cons: "Never happened since the first fligh never landed. Has to be rebooked on a united flight which took me to destination."
Pros: "Nice aircraft. Good direct flight without the hassle of a layover"
Cons: "Seat comfort not so good. The cabins a bit dated with the seats needing to be tightened."
Cons: "Three hour delay with no real explanation is unacceptable"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The crew did not cater to the passengers. Every international flight I've been on, the crew members always ask if we want more snacks or drinks. I was never approached. Also, I asked for an extra blanket and was told no."
Pros: "Very smooth and easy flight. Very friendly staff."
Pros: "There is nothing I liked about air Canada"
Cons: "Everything sucks"
Pros: "The crew did a fine job after a hard day."
Cons: "The monitor showed delay after delay--finally at 2 1/2 hours--and no one ever made any announcement. Customer service desks were closing and there was no agents at the gate. Customers did not get any information about why they were leaving at 23:25 rather than 20:55. Finally one agent started to fill us in but no announcements in gate area. This was a really unpleasant delay situation. We needed a lot more information and gate agents to help out. I will strongly try to avoid Air Canada in the future. Overall two thumbs down on the experience."
Pros: "i canceled by flight nyc to toronto to rio do to the custom laws in canada that they have the right to inspect all cell phones and lap tops, and can demand your pass code."
Cons: "canceled flight went with LATAM air"
Pros: "Friendliness of flight attendant. Plane clean and newer than others I've flew on."
Cons: "Lack of more flights throughout the day. Also sometimes flights are late as there are crew changes or planes flown from other cities to Toronto to accommodate the flight. Making departures late to leave. In spite of this, I would still fly Air Canada."
Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence due to weather"
Pros: "Pleasant staff. All smiles and very agreeable at the gate and checkin, but..."
Cons: "This new unassigned seat fare that offers the "cheapest rate" also doesn't allow a checked bag. What this means is that you have to do two separate searches to compare the basic economy price and the upgraded economy to see if the difference is less than a checked bag. It makes the booking process unecessarily complicated, so much so that I'm just going to exculde United from the list of airlines when I do a search on one of the aggregators"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 times and by 6 hours"
Pros: "Comfy plane, ease of connection"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Shirt flight"

Pros: "On this specific day, flight/s didn't go as planned starting with flight cancellation due to mechanical issues. However, I did eventually arrive."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Second flight overbooked and I was bumped. Put on connecting flight versus direct for third try at getting to destination. Almost bumped again. Finally arrived 10 hrs later."
Pros: "The stewards were nice and they were prompt. The plane seemed to be well cleaned inside and they were quick to get everyone boarded and bags stowed underneath. The pilot knew what he was doing and I had no worries there. Everyone was doing their jobs as well as they could be done."
Cons: "The air nozzle above my seat was broken and would not turn off so I freezing the entire flight, as well as the tray table seeming like it was meant for the lap of an infant versus myself and I can't imagine how someone with longer legs than myself dealt with the way it folded down. The take off was rough either seemingly due to tires or perhaps a rough runway. The wifi on the plane would not work. It worked ok my first flight but not on the second. I don't know why and no one knew why either, had the latest app and it was updated to the current version."
Cons: "Too little time allotted between an international flight to catch the domestic connection. If I had checked my bags I would not have made it through customs and security in time."
Pros: "It was delayed n delayed again it's always a problem"
Pros: "Easy buddy"
Pros: "Flight canceled due to weather. Eunice Daly in Newark was kind and efficient with finding a new flight to my final destination of Indianapolis. She was great and is a huge asset to united airlines! Bravo eunice and bravo united for having people like Eunice working for them!"

Pros: "Same as for first leg"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Had us planeside check our roller bags but had at least 4 overhead bins around us that ended up being empty. They then took a substantial amount of time to unload the plane side checked bags. I was toward the rear of the plane and still had to wait."
Pros: "The flight & the crew were great."
Cons: "Not everyone likes rock-hard crackers."
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "Custermer service for United is terrible. Not impressed at all."
Pros: "Wifi n t.v. sets"
Pros: "Service on plane, on time"
Cons: "Staff at both Indianapolis and Denver airports were rude and unprofessional. We definitely got stuck in last available middle seats all in separate places on plane...I am guessing this is because we didn't book directly with United because I registered early for our flight."
Pros: "i liked the fact that it was a short trip so i could make my way home from there."
Pros: "Fine. Wish my earlier one wasn't so delayed."
Cons: "Same as the first one"
Cons: "I was early to my flight and sent to the wrong gate. When I received the notice that the gate had been changed, I had a long way to go to get to the correct gate and limited time. Since I have arthritis I was very inconvenienced making the gate."

Pros: "Ahead of schedule and pleasant"

Cons: "Flight cancelled - again - and due to mechcanical issues"
Pros: "Cabin crew were fantastic"
Pros: "They made up time since the plane left late."
Cons: "The man who was boarding us announced to the whole area that if your ticket says to see him just sit down and wait to be called because he's "getting irritated". Terrible customer service! The crew on the plane acted like they didn't want to be there. They had a ton of empty seats but announced that we can't move up or change unless we pay for it with our credit card. I understand it but it sounded really bad. Not welcoming at all. Will avoid United in the future."
Pros: "Everyone was very accommodating! Thank You."
Pros: "On time and nice attendants"
Cons: "I paid $59 to upgrade to a premium seat and it was terrible with my feet being in the aisle where the service cart rolled"
Cons: "Screaming child the entire 4 hr flight made even the flight attendants angry!"
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."

Cons: "Luggage Lost on 4 Apr after I came to my destination Indianapolis. I reported my lost luggage on the same day at Airport at United airlines office. Its been 10 days and no one has followed up yet on my lost luggage. I have to call United Airlines Customer Care everyday to get a status on my report. No follow up is made on the lost luggage. They have asked to file claim which will also take 8-10 weeks to process. All these experiences has made me and my friends not to prefer United Airlines for Travel."
Cons: "the flight was 2.5 hours late. for no reason that couldn't be resolved much much sooner"
Pros: "I like that the flight was quick and convenient!"
Cons: "There should have been free entertainment considering the short length of the flight. There was no beverage service."

Cons: "NO COMMUNICATION."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. After waiting on hold for over an hour two separate times, I made other arrangements to get home. I still need to get a refund or voucher, but finding a time to sit on hold for over an hour is hard to do."
Cons: "2nd time flying United baggage late arriving both times"
