Cons: "Even though we landed in Doha before our connection left ( barely-20 min)on Qatar airways, they would not hold the connecting flight for the 7 of us who were connecting. This was extremely disappointing as we then lost a full 8 hours of our first day arrival. If they schedule you for a 45 minute connecting flight, I suggest you book a later one. Our flight from NYC left on time but was 20 min late landing. Their only compensation to us all was use of the airport lounge in Doha ( quite nice with free food wine and showers, but would rather have had the extra day in Bali."

Cons: "Food quality and quantity."

Cons: "Seat number was the same but different position from one reserved online"

Pros: "great crew and food."

Cons: "nothing on the actual flight --- but i felt we had been promised overnight hotel stay since the layover was 8 hours and 55 minutes --- if was not granted in spited of 2 eMails and promise at the time of booking"

Pros: "Very friendly online travel booking portal. I like it"

Pros: "Nice flight attendants, frequent fluid services."
Cons: "There was no Wifi in the plane."

Pros: "Overall, an excellent short flight. I was flying with oversize luggage (bicycle), which is offer a hassle. The ticket agent took care of it without issue, and it arrived safely. Food was OK. I would try Qatar for a long flight if the opportunity arises."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Everyone just queued up instead of using zones, etc."

Pros: "The flight crew was polite. The plane was clean and comfortable. The food was well timed and delicious. They explained everything in full, and were extremely apologetic when there was one short delay. All of my planes were for the most part well timed (we had one short delay)"

Pros: "The Steward on this flight was excellent. Very attentive and pleasant. He asked at the end of my flight how was everything. Food was good ."
Cons: "This flight was better than the flight going out to Doha , then to Abu Dhabi. You guys were late landing,and as a result I almost missed my connecting flight, was rushed thru the airport like a lunatic by one of your Reps. Then was told my luggage may not be in Abu Dhabi when I arrive, which it was not. My paid for seat wasn't available and had to sit in the back. Had to fill out a lost luggage report in Abu Dhabi. Was promised my luggage by 4:30 pm . Didn't receive it until 2:30 am next day. Missed my whole first day of vacation as I had no clothes , toiletries, etc . Very angry, and feel I should get a substantial discount on my next flight in March to Dubai. Totally unacceptable !!!!!!!"

Pros: "The entertainment and food was great. The service as well. They are very attentive to any request."
Cons: "When it was time to leave Doha, Qatar there was a massive delay which caused us to be late for any upcoming transfer in BKK. That told me that my would be delivered the next day. I am currently trying to figure out whether they have my bags or not."

Pros: "Layover was short"
Cons: "I was charged for my carry on that they then forced me to check. Then one of the stewards on the second leg was an outright nasty woman regarding masks. I had my mask over nose and mouth. But apparently not enough and then she was loudly talking to the other flight attendants about it. One told me “I was perfectly fine.”"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane on time and it was very hot on the plane"

Cons: "Was sick so couldn’t fly airline refused to help and let me change my flights"

Pros: "Landing safely"
Cons: "Late departure. Poor food sale selection"

Pros: "Boeing 787 is a nice plane."
Cons: "When flying cross-country, I always choose a window seat so I could look at the mountains in Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California. But on this flight, the windows would dim completely so I couldn't see anything. And the controls to un-dim them didn't work."

Pros: "It was just okay"
Cons: "Nothing just flying in a smaller plane"

Pros: "Flew United out of Sioux Falls. Check in took forever. United employees were miserable. Did get some help from a very nice TSA woman. TSA check in was a nightmare. Almost missed flight. Complete chaos. The sat on runway for 40 minutes waging for luggage to be loaded. Almost missed connecting flight. Just plane horrible. Very helpful stewardess however."

Pros: "Great inflight service! On the ground faster than expected."
Cons: "I asked to complementary check my small carry on, but the attendants at the desk would not let me. The stewardesses were booked too closely to their last flight and we were delayed - huge oversight. Boarding was chaotic as the gate immediately across from us was simultaneously boarding and the United staff made the whole process long and miserable by failing to call the next boarding group in a timely fashion. This is not the first time I’ve felt miserable while trying to board a United flight :/."

Pros: "Everything was as planned"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot and attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Rules are rules. Yet, at least ten people brought on more than the designated one carry-on bag and purse. Flight attendants shouldn't have to deal with those poorly mannered passengers who think they deserve special treatment. Otherwise, it was all fine."

Cons: "Maintnece delayed our flight for nearly 3 hours. We remained aboard the parked plan for this time span and not allowed to get off of plan."

Pros: "easy"
Cons: "nothinh"

Pros: "I am muslim, but I forgot to arrange the kind of food I would prefer during the flight, and the gentlement I talked to said let me see what I could do to help you about it, and few minutes later came up with muslim meal. I was really happy! Thank you all again."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Stuck in Denver because our flight was delayed so we missed our connection to Houston. Couldn’t get a hotel voucher because they are claiming a weather delay (which there was none)."

Cons: "It was boiling hot on this flight."

Pros: "Everything was good."

Pros: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"
Cons: "Will never fly UNITED again no matter how cheap!!!!!"

Pros: "The cheap price of the flight."
Cons: "Flight wasn't comfortable, non legroom an no acces to entertainment."

Pros: "Despite delay, pilot made up time in air and we made our connection in Denver. Advice to download United app for free entertainment ahead of takeoff meant we didn't miss the chance to offer movies to our kids on flight. In-flight crew was incredibly friendly/helpful."
Cons: "Gate attendant was INCREDIBLY unfriendly - made no eye contact or completely ignored our verbal greetings/thanks during early boarding w/ our young child. Delayed an hour out of Baltimore, we were worried we'd miss our connection."

Cons: "Advertised great price that did not include luggage and changes were not permitted. Cancellation within 24 hours."

Pros: "It was a new plane. Plenty of leg room and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Arrived a little early and had to sit at gate before deplaning"

Pros: "Quick short flight."

Cons: "United service was uniformly poor. When we checked in at Dulles Airport, we had to go to two different counters to send our luggage. The United check-in / baggage attendant determined that two of my bags were 'oversized.' I have travelled dozens of times with these same bags, including on this trip, and none of the airport determined the bags to be oversized. The United seats, which we had purchased as "Premium Economy" from the Lufthansa site were "Economy Plus" and not worth the extra $ 275 per seat. The United plane was not well-maintained and had several obvious defects. If United wants "Star AlliNCE" to mean something, they need to do as well as Lufthansa."

Pros: "I love THe. cak airport. ANd I am flying United again tomorrow"
Cons: "My carry on. Didn't fit. Had to check it after I boarded. Front desk said it was good. I bought it For THaT purpose.. The retailer advertises it as tsa approved carry oOn?"

Cons: "It landed"

Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew were pleasant and polite. I was a little surprised that the pilot announced they wanted to leave early; there were a couple of announcements about that while we were boarding. When we arrived at LAX there wasn't a gate available, because we were early, so I don't think we gained anything other than a feeling of being herded quickly."
Cons: "Entertainment options were limited; Friends and Big Bang reruns plus some music videos. According to the app, these don't work on Windows 8, which is what I had. The seats are cramped with very little tilt. I had an aisle seat and was hit by nearly everyone walking by, even though it wasn't a rough flight. I would rather not fly with this airline; I don't see anything that they do that would encourage my return business. Frankly, I've had better flights on Southwest!"

Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hrs delayed"

Pros: "Crew on board was very good. Also Had a connection in Houston and ground crew was very helpful. I needed a wheelchair and it was right there and would have missed the connection if I had to walk"
Cons: "Seats to tight. Person in front put his seat back the whole flight. Very"

Pros: "The flight was fine. Crew was polite. No problems with that part."
Cons: "Tell me why it costs $470 to fly 1.5 hours from S.F. To Denver. Absurd! I flew from Denver to San Fran for $90, the same week. Never again!"

Pros: "It was indeed good experience."

Pros: "Well, my original flight was cancelled due to bad weather, got to spend 2 extra days with my family! Gave up my seat on the last leg of my flight, got a 500$ voucher, put up in a beautiful hotel, w/ a nice meal and transportation. Like winning a sweepstake. Always love United, great airline, great staff."
Cons: "There was nothing i didn't like. Airline of choice, for always!"

Cons: "Delayed flight due to a plane change."

Pros: "Solid flight, there were open seats in the economy plus and they let me move up to them, which was great!"

Cons: "Small plane, no TV"

Cons: "seat didnt recline, tight space couldnt sleep no chargers the plane sucks"

Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. THEY CANCELED MY RESERVATION AND WOULDN'T GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK. I WILL NEVER FLY UNITED AGAIN"

Cons: "United is a poor carrier, there's nothing more to say. I struggled with my check in (I had just had a spine procedure done 48 hrs prior).... and by the time I got help from an agent it was 7:03 am, so... They wouldn't give me a boarding pass for my 8 am flight. Add to that an extremely rude ticket agent who couldn't care less about helping me, and almost seemed to enjoy my predicament, and that sums up my experience with this airline. I will never fly with them again, that's for sure; there's so many other airlines that actually care about their customers, this is not one of them."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Ride was ok. Both our flights from Chicago were delayed. No one tried to explain or offer any apology. No one offered to complete anything or offer coupons for meals. I thought that was extremely rude."
Cons: "See above. Very disappointed. There were four of us and my 76 year old father has health issues and was very uncomfortable."

Pros: "All the crew were friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Waiting so long for the flight to actually take off. Very late !"

Pros: "courteous attendents and airport personnel. on time flight"
Cons: "nothing"

Cons: "My flight was two hours delayed and overbooked so I have up my seat and united ensured we'd get to slo asap but ended up not leaving lax until 8:00."

Cons: "Apart from the bad weather, the flight from Houston to Mexico was delayed because we were waiting for two flight attendants that were coming from another flight. The airline needs to have enough crew."

Cons: "They lost my piece of luggage."

Pros: "Wifi"
Cons: "Boarding chaos, zones are there for a reason and the gate agent shouldn't be a pushover. Had the huge elbow hog sitting next to me and the temperature on board was between 95-105. It was crazy warm for a winter flight when passengers are already wearing cold adapted clothing."

Pros: "Service was good"

Pros: "Entertainment was good... Kept me engaged... Crew were reasonable with their service"
Cons: "Food tasted horrible. I have travelled in multiple airlines in the past including British Airways, Emirates, South African, Delta and more. Food is by far inferior to any of the other airlines."

Pros: "The flight was fine nothing to rave about or complain about."
Cons: "The cargo door did jam on the return flight so we had to wait at least 30 minutes to get our bags. Not sure if someone didn't do what they were supposed to do when securing luggage. It took maintenance some time and several calls before they came to assist."

Cons: "Almost missed our flight because they wanted to close the gate early..other than that a good flight."

Pros: "Service was good. Flight was on time. Comfort was fair. Bathroom on board plane was so small my knees would hit door."
