Cons: "On the Mexico layover you have to fill paperwork like if you are going to stay in Mexico. My passport number was filled with a different ink color and paperwork was rejected. I was really tired and this paperwork took forever. Then after you go through the line and your paperwork is checked you have to go get your checked in luggage. I didn't like that you have to find the carrousel and pick your bags... that alone took 50 mins. For some reason we were waiting and waiting for the first bags out of the plane to come out. After that you have to form line again to put all your luggage into an x-ray machine. Then there's one final luggage paperwork check and Then you have to take your luggage to a carrousel again so they can board it into the plane. Then you have to go through security and then you have to go find the departure gate at the monitors in the terminal. Ours did not have a gate until 10 mins before departure. Signage at the Mexican airport is very poor. You have to ask people."

Pros: "My seat mate"
Cons: "The flight attendant"

Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 minutes while sitting on runway"

Cons: "Our extra legroom premium seats didn’t feel like we had much more room. No TVs, WiFi that didn’t work...left a lot to be desired. I know the standards are pretty low in the US compared to other countries, but for a plane that seemed relatively new, the lack of standard technology seemed cheap."

Pros: "Very kind flight attendant. Flight on time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."

Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."

Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "We were told that we get one checked bag free, but at check-in were told we had to pay. So much for low prices!"

Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It's was my kids first time fying and no entertainment. Wi-Fi didn't work. And the kandng was a bit scary."

Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Unexplained delay, more than 4 hours. Terrible"

Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."

Pros: "The crew, boarding went smooth"
Cons: "The seats too close ,I drop one paper I could hardly bend over I am 5ft tall"

Cons: "Spotty internet, somewhat limited entertainment."

Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "Packed together like animals on the way to the slaughterhouse for a 6 hour flight. And they charge for the tiny screen entertainment. They will happily allow you to swipe your credit card. Fly Jet Blue if you can- extra space between seats, free entertainment, comfortable flights."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane was a little drafty."

Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "Dear United crew, there are definitely a bunch of great people amongst you. Can you please tell your fellow colleagues to start treating passengers as customers ... no need to leave your good spirits at home, just bring it on the plane ... starting with a smile! And yes, in seat power was not working. PS I wonder who decided on the power outlet placement ... 1.5M flying miles on United."

Pros: "Service was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"

Pros: "Plane was a lot cleaner than I’ve been accustomed to. Boarding was great."
Cons: "I want real food on 4 hour flights where there’s only 1 hour between connections. Starving from 4am pacific to 5pm eastern time is not good for my blood glucose levels. Salt and gluten laden over priced snacks are not good enough"

Cons: "No drop down or seat screens."

Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"

Pros: "Arrived on time"

Cons: "Plane was delayed because the AC was not working right. It never really cooled down much during the flight. They need to get their act together"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "The free in-flight entertainment was great. I appreciate it being free as it makes up for some of the other issues of not being able to sit next to fellow travelers on the low-fare"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The united staff kept skipping the lines to drop off the bags. They didn't care when multiple people in line said they were skipping people. After paying once for my checked bag they tried to make me pay again. Asked to see in writing what they were trying to explain and the manager couldn't do it. They never gave me my ticket stub for my checked bag. So if it hadn't arrived I wouldn't have had anyway to find it. Very disappointing staff in SFO. Seemed aa if no one at SFO was happy to be working there or even worse didnt know what to do most of the time. VERY different than the DEN united experience."

Pros: "the large Wide body plan"

Pros: "Had no food so don't know. Entertainment system was available, but did not use it."
Cons: "Would have been nice if I could turn it off the entertainment system."

Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."

Pros: "It was good overall"

Pros: "Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "Staff nice and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback."

Pros: "Leg room & comfortable seating. Staff were nice & helpful"
Cons: "They should serve sufficient quantity of snacks in long journey"

Pros: "Plane was 1/2 full; almost all tourists. Clean and ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Snacks are really weak - and I paid for them!"

Pros: "Same exact as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "I loved how easy it was to book the flight."
Cons: "I cancelled my flight within 24hrs and received no refund because I booked through priceline. However, there was no restriction or clause listed on the ticket stating that I had to cancel through priceline also. It really should not matter who I cancelled through, if I canceled within 24hrs the refund should be given. Also, the debits from my account said United as well as priceline taking me to United's web page to make the purchase. So of course one would think cancelling through United's site is appropriate. I'm very disappointed in United and will consider all other options (Airlines) before booking with them again. PS - United customer gave me the run around for 3 days knowing that it was their policy and they were the company who's keeping my money. Absolutely ridiculous."

Pros: "First of all, I was excited to get to Puerto Vallarta! Unfortunately, we had a delay due to a child who got sick as the plane was backing from the gate. The crew was fantastic and had paramedics load the plane to check on toddler. The family deboarded and United crew cleaned the throw up. The pilots kept the passengers informed and we proceeded with the flight. The flight attendants were fantastic, particularly the brunette attendant who remembered me from a previous flight. Best flight attendant ever!! Thank you United!!!"

Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"

Pros: "I arrived at the aurport 1 hr 20 mins before flight - plenty if time to check in and make it to gate at a small airport ad Newark is. Wanted to check in online - the United System did not allow me to. Had to wait in line - long line due to holidays. I raised my hand and asked for assistance given the impending 1 hr cut off time for check in. Was told I should go to the special assustance line. Well, guess what - that line which was meant to be express service for fliers with special situations was moving with the speed of a tortoise - slower than the general line. Only 2 flight assistants were servicing, both incredibly slow. When asked politely that I need special assistance as I was approaching the 1 hr cut iff fir checkin, the United lady yelled at me instead of speeding up her slow motion. Bottom line, I missed my flight on a tiny airport dedpite arriving 1 hr 20 mins before flight. Had to wait 14 hrs overnight at the airport to catch the next flight because the United Airlines personnel are lazy, slow, inefficient, rude and no customer oriented. Terrible service."

Cons: "The flight I purchased was over booked. I had to leave a friend behind and travel on my own. I will never use United Airlines again."

Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"
