Not sure why he singled me out. Also took my passport, which he wasn't doing for other passengers and told me to board the plane. I had to ask multiple times for him to return my passport. Not sure if it was his first day or something but it was a very frustrating experience."

Pros: "Very attentive.. good service.."
Cons: "Seats to tight.."

Pros: "Even with the weather the flight made it out of Dallas and on to Philadelphia. I am guessing they had to switch crews but not much of a hiccup."

Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "The flight delayed 6 hours."

Pros: "Excluding the below situations, everything else exceeded expectations, just outstanding."
Cons: "Food selection for someone who's allergic to milk, such as myself, was the poorest I've ever encountered. Also, somehow the TSA Pre-Check for both my spouse and I was "dropped." So we had to wait to clear security and still didn't have tickets until the last minute because we couldn't check-in online because we needed our passports. Therefore, we almost missed our flight to Dallas. My spouse and I are still upset about the situation and lack of customer service."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."

Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."

Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together."

Pros: "the airlines did try to accommodate by giving us optional flight when our connecting flight got cancelled"
Cons: "No meal options for vegetarians for breakfast. They just gave everyone a turkey sandwich. Rude, frustated and sarcastic staff"

Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"

Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."

Cons: "Mediocre snack"

Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."

Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Flight Attendent, crew and aircraft"
Cons: "Had to wait 35 minutes for luggage at Bradley. Poor"

Pros: "Plane was one and a half hours late out of SF to Newark. Had to fly standby to Boston instead of Providence. Had to take a bus to Providence, was exhausted, and cost twenty six dollars with the driver from hell. Asked United for an aisle seat so my right leg could stick out. Bad right knee. They stuck me on the left aisle instead. Was in agony the whole flight."
Cons: "Read above."

Cons: "Carmel waffle cookie"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"

Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"

Cons: "Windows were dirty and that's looking for something. Lol"

Pros: "Flight attendants and other crew work long, hard hours, and I appreciate them greatly, particularly those who have enough self-awareness to be honestly gracious and friendly (as opposed to plastic smiles). I did not get this young woman's name, unfortunately, but everything about her work was exemplary. Thanks!"
Cons: "Everything was just fine."

Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."

Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."

Cons: "My flights got changed and seat assignments changed so I did not get xtra leg room as I needed Also united did not know that I had a service dog even though I booked with that information"

Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."

Cons: "I called about changing my travel dates to later dates and they wanted $200, each direction, to change them. That's more than it cost to buy the later tickets, outright. In other words, the message from United is: "How about we keep your money *and* we fly someone else in your seat (because we overbook)?". Okay... how about I never fly on your airline, again."

Pros: "Acommodating ground crew."

Pros: "Price was fair. Wait times weren't exceedingly long."
Cons: "Leg room was terrible, no working outlet, food options were garbage."

Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."

Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"

Cons: "Missed connecting flight Bc it was delayed."

Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"

Cons: "The HI Ag questionnaire: why? what value?"

Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"

Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "We boarded then sat! There was too much fuel from the previous flight so we had to sit while they unloaded some."

Cons: "Flight 5022 was delayed 1 hr leaving SBP due to flight arriving late. Very little info was relayed by airline staff about the reason for or details of the delay. This delay caused me to miss my connection in SFO and be rebooked to a later flight, which was also delayed over an hour."

Cons: "Fligh delay."

Cons: "I don't understand what the form is used for, based on the useless information it asks for. My flight was held from disembarking in order for the forms to be delivered upon landing, then distibuted to a plane full of.passengers pulling out carry-ons while asking to borrow ballpoint pens to fill out the forms before de-planing. I've been a Hawaii Island resident for 36 years and a State employee for 25 years. The effort required to input and process this data had better be rewarding for the state population and not another State 'make-work' chokehold on the travel industry. I realize the danger of invasive species in the state but does it really require a Completed form for Every passenger on Every flight to make a difference? Airline employees took their task Very seriously, BTW. Why?"

Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"

Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."

Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."

Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"

Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"

Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."

Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"

Cons: "I am handicapped. Boarding agent abused me. Made me walk to plane on tarmac in stocking feet. Asked for wheel chair and was denied. Have congestive heart failure and could hardly make it on the plane. The man should be fired. Deputy sheriff with him was just as bad glad to go into more detail with someone. Will report united to govt. small Airport would not ever be reorder."

Pros: "Zero"
Cons: "II spent $502.20 on a flight that ended up a complete disaster, ultimately costing me even more money to fix. UA411 ORD -> LAX -> SBP ORD - LAX take of was delayed. After landing we sat on the tarmac without explanation for about an hour, which caused me to miss my connection to SBP. I ran the ridiculous gate change distance through the airport and arrived 1 minute prior to scheduled take-off and was not allowed to board. They left behind at least 8-9 passengers (that I saw) that were also delayed from the ORD-LAX flight – this is probably 1/3 of the flight. It's absurd. I then waited in the Customer Service line for 30 mins and was told I have to go online to request my flight credit for the flight I wasn't allowed to board. I was also told to request a credit for the rental car that I had to arrange last minute online. United did absolutely zero to assist. The next flight out wasn't until after 11am the next day, which caused me to miss a prepaid event, which was the entire reason for my trip. I had to drive over 3 hours in the middle of the night arriving 5am the next morning due to United Airlines' incompetence."

Cons: "It was very crowded"

Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."

Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."

Pros: "I EVENTUALLY arrived at my destination."
Cons: "A whole series of delays that landed me at my final destination over 8 hours late! I lost my hotel booking and had to arrange for pick up well after midnight!! Miserable."

Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "Everything"
