The flight also boarded and departed mostly on time, and the onboard wifi was great."

Cons: "We did not board at the scheduled time, although I believe we arrived on time. The crew was demeaning and singled out individuals who were causing the aircraft to not move. It was in a very pretentious manner, not like southwest personnel who have similar antics but with a playful tone. The plane is a small one where bags don't fit overhead and many head bumps occur. We arrived fine which mean the flight was successful but it was not very enjoyable."

Pros: "the flight was scheduled 1h30"
Cons: "the seat comfort"

I immediately advised Lufthansa, asking for cancellation of flight and reimbursement. They cancelled my reservation immediately.

Pros: "Can’t think of a thing on this flight."
Cons: "Delay after delay. Took way too long for de-icing. The storage compartmemt door got stuck and I could not get my bag out. The flight attendant blamed the issue on my bag. She claimed it was too big. It was not. I have carried the bag on several flights with similar planes, the gate agent slowed it on the plane as many have, and I had no issue opening and closing other compartment as I tried a couple after maintenance retrieved my bag."
Pros: "It was perfect"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Pros: "Speed of flight"
Pros: "Very hot upon entrance to airplane, minimal ventilation, very hot entire flight Seats too close together front to back!!!!"
Cons: "Very hot poor if any ventilation i had to remove my shirt and sit in t-shirt only and still too hot ( i am not a large person-165 pounds and 6 feet tall ) the larger person next to me was suffering even more"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. My neck and lower back hurt afterwards. I do not recommend taking an overnight flight with united or do not expect to sleep if you do."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Chicago airport gate is so far away from other united flights I can't believe they don't provide a shuttle to it."
Pros: "I went a different route back to Denver I drove in a vehicle do the circumstances of a friend moving back to Colorado from Michigan. So I called ahead of time and let United Airlines know to go ahead and give my seat to anybody"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Plane was small for a2:55 flight"
Pros: "Everything was on time!!! I flew in the new airplane with the adjustable seats coach and I was comfortable!!! This is a huge difference from a couple of years ago when I totally refused to fly this airline due to the the small uncomfortable seats when I was flying from NY to LA. The service was amazing - every person from the kiosk help to the suitcase attendant who found my forgotten duty-free purchase after arrival. I had the best experience flying United - they really stepped up their game!!! No complaints!!!"
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to book two tickets together and end up sitting in two middle seats in different rows."
Pros: "Short flight so no time for perks. Flight attendant was awesome!"
Pros: "One of the worst and most chaotic security / boarding experiences I've ever been through. Plus they refuse to gate check fragile musical instruments."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Gosh---no feedback on delay of takeoff . Didn't seem like they tried to avoid the turbulence which lasted the entire 4 hour flight . And to top it off the landing tossed us around in our seats because it was so rough. No apology and no sign of pilots when we disembarked very odd"
Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"
Pros: "Going home"
Cons: "it got cancelled and di not have"
Cons: "Grinding and whining while plane in taxi- extremely loud frinding when landing gear engaged and disengaged"
Pros: "I usually fly spirit"
Cons: "Wish I would have gotten a direct flight from Tokyo to SFO"
Cons: "Taxied on the tarmac in Chicago for almost as long as we were in the air from South Bend. Arrived too early and there was no gate. By the time we finally deplaned, my next flight was already boarding."
Pros: "Fast. On time. Great service"
Pros: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
Cons: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."

Pros: "The staff was great. Very accommodating."
Cons: "TV was inoperable for the 5 hour flight. However, United made it up to us. Thank you United."
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely small. Being 6'4" it's a challenge to navigate to and from your seat. I was pleasantly surprised that I could fit in the seat."
Pros: "Wheels up to wheels down took under 20 minutes."
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and if I would've had to sit on that plane much longer I would've been quite sore. Seats are small, space is exceedingly limited. But, it was a regional jet, so this was to be expected. Nonetheless, other airlines' regional jets haven't been quite so cramped."
Cons: "You had to buy food or snacks and buy tv connection seats are super uncomfortable"
Pros: "Very smooth and speedy flight, arrived early!"
Pros: "The boarding process was excellent, smooth, orderly and expedient."
