Cons: "More room for overhead bags so checking carry-on isn’t necessary"
Pros: "Multiple rounds of drinks/snacks"
Cons: "The crew did not update us about why the WiFi was not working and whether we could expect it to start working again, so I kept checking my computer over the 4 hour flight to see if the WiFi was working and it never did. This was despite multiple passengers inquiring about the WiFi..."
Pros: "Good pilots"
Cons: "Service is dismal and run down interior. Rips in seats. Lags way behind Asian or certain European airlines"

Pros: "Flight crew was very nice Seats were comfortable"

Cons: "Delayed flight caused missed connection. Auto booked on late flight next day and had to change airlines to get better times. Voucher given for hotel off airport and shuttle never arrived and had to take Uber. Hotel very low quality."

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."
Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"
Cons: "steward was somewhat aggressive, but was responsive one on one. Focus on size of carry on baggage was anxiety producing."
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: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Narrow seat"
Pros: "The plane ride was great really liked the connecting times"
Pros: "Didnt try entertainment. Everything else perfect but airline food always average at best."
Cons: "You have taken the enjoyment of flying first class to a whole new low with the new seats they have designed and put in. The lack a privacy from the cabin as well as the design in how the seat is set, comfort and utility of the seat - my tray table didn't even function. It was an expensive 4 hour flight that was not comfortable ..."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Half the flight booked, they let us switch to better seats!"
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: "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: "For the most part the ride was nice."
Cons: "Seats were so small"
Cons: "I and my wife had the unfortunate occasion to be assigned seats 38a and 38b on a flight we purchased months ago. In an effort to sell more economy plus seats at additional cost, they sacrificed mine and my wife's relative comfort and anyone else in these cheapseats larger than a child. Longtime customer here with frequent flyer membership will be looked for better seats from all airlines available. Doesn't pay to be brand loyal unfortunately."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and patient working to reroute so many people."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2.5 hours. Crew were really helpful and trying to assist so many who needed to get where they were going. Honestly it wasn't anyone's fault just what happens sometimes."
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: "All the new amenities on united airlines are great the new seats are much more comfortable and have better leg room"
Cons: "No security for the wifi, I work In Silicon Valley and the soft security could be an issue but then again all the airlines lack passwords."
Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"
Pros: "Boarding went well, Flight was smooth,"
Cons: "Not only the Gate, but the terminal was changed with out advance notice. I got to Terminal C- listed on my boarding pass, only to check the screen to find they switched to Terminal A, which meant exiting the terminal C and taking a bus to Terminal A. Only as I was boarding the plane did I receive a late text telling me there was a Terminal change. The flight attendants passed me by with the drink cart and never came back to service me"
Pros: "Flight delayed for a short time, explanation given- satisfying. Delayed flight info sent via text very helpful. Flight attendants and staff, very attentive, courteous, professional and informational. Over all satisfied with United airlines, thank you for my sucressful trip to Kansas City to celebrate my grandfathers 90th birthday!"
Cons: "Waited at the kiosk at the gate desk, took about 20 minutes for an agent to appear and help with customer service."
Pros: "The purchasing experience was great."
Cons: "Had to pay for the 2nd bag for an international flight. Didn't expect it."
