Pros: "Domestic flight from IAD to LAX was not great as usual — small space, overbooked, no food, entertainment slow. But LAX-INCHEON-MNL was GREAT! Extra space, efficient, helpful and happy crew ready to help passengers! I was surprised by this!"
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Cons: "United's flight was delayed by 6 hours, couldn't make the connecting flight from Washington DC to Denver so they routed me to san francisco, spend the night at the airport there and then travel to Denver in the morning. Fortunately there was a very helpful crew in Schiphol that was able to get us on a flight with american airlines to philadelphia and then on to Denver."
Cons: "Never made it. Stuck in Denver."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Pros: "Friendly crew good leg space."
Cons: "We were actually pretty close to on time. Just 10 minutes late."
Pros: "Nice recline, Nice 777-200."
Cons: "Thought we were going to have to spend the night on New Jersey. Because of it. No apologies or compensation. As a result, we didn't get home until almost 3:00 A.M."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant, food was average."
Cons: "The flight being cancelled. Wifi doesn't even come close to working. No personal entertainment. Communication was poor for the rescheduling of flight that led me to miss the next flight"
Cons: "I can't review this flight because the itinerary change and last minute cancellation of United Airlines' flights."
Cons: "Leg I was only offered economy. Not plus"
Pros: "Great and fast"
Cons: "Wait in Houston. Delayed flights. Not united fault"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled rerouted with Delta"
Pros: "I like that the seats were more comfortable and had at least some padding."
Cons: "The gate had no comfortable seats and looked like a minimalists ' lounge. The gate agent did not actively give any updates to the boarding process."
Pros: "The entertainment worked for like most of the time (surprisingly) and I got an extra seat next to me."
Cons: "What can you expect from united... the crew members were terrible absolutely unprofessional and unwilling to help. We were delayed for 3 hours in Taipei due to an issue with the plane that they were trying to fix. During this time many people were trying to change flights as they had connections in SFO. When they asked the hostesses for help, they either got rude unhelpful responses or got completely ignored. United really needs to train their flight attendants better."
Pros: "I was not pulled off the plane."
Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty and sound wasn't working for first in flight movie"
Pros: "They put me and my son in the very last row of the airplane. I realize this is probably the only way I could afford to fly so I will put up with it, but it isn't very comfortable for 73 year old woman."
Pros: "United is definitely improving. The service was attentive and friendly. When I asked for PJ's, the flight attendant made a good effort to retrieve them for me. I slept through the entire flight, very rare unless the conditions were optimal for sleep."
Cons: "While this flight was fine, my flight to Taipei was riddled with poor service. A bad and forgetful flight attendant can make all the difference. As United adjusts their service to the new Polaris configuration on newer planes, conditions will hopefully improve."
Pros: "Express boarding, Quick flight, approx 1 hour in total. No turbulence, no drama. Shuttle bus took us to our gate and luggage arrived right away at baggage claim without any delays."
Cons: "Departure was initially delayed an hour, then it turned out it was only delayed 20min. They went back and forth for a bit. Same thing happened at Newark airport. Pilot announced we'd be taxi-ing around waiting for gate, then a min later comes back to say we actually have a gate ready. Not sure why so many miscommunications."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Pros: "Fast and smooth"
Cons: "My flight was significantly delayed. They kept changing the departure time and we ended up getting in very late."
Pros: "On board shows were good."
Cons: "Flight left about 3-3.5 hours late. Add that to the time you have to show up early to the airport and I could've been almost home in my car. We were boarded and left to sit for a long time then the pilot came on saying the mechanic needed more time to look at the tire which might need to be changed. After another 15-20 min sitting, pilot comes on and says we need to get off the plane so the maintenance could be done. Ok I'd rather fly safe than be on time but really? Why doesn't this airline have enough planes that the maintenance can be done when the plane isn't scheduled to fly? So many people missed connections and we ended up getting home so much later than we had expected! Honestly I would rather the airline have emailed saying flight delayed 3 hours so I could have had more time in SF rather than sitting in an airport eating a mediocre airport meal for dinner. They had to have known the tire was almost to the point of changing right? I mean I would hope it's checked each flight. Just all together inconvenient. Like they book all theses flights to make money and yet if they had fewer but didn't make anyone waste the day or night at the airport so they could perform routine maintenance it may be worth an extra few bucks in my book. My time is valuable too, and I don't think I was the only one on the flight who thought so. Maybe United doesn't value anyone else's time other than theirs. Guess this is why we have several airlines to choose from and we will not likely fly United again."
Cons: "All the food choices had some sort of animal product – eggs, dairy or meat"
Pros: "Made the flight-arrived home early-good landing!"
Cons: "Racing to make it-thought we hadn't."
Pros: "I appreciate that United hasn't gotten greedy with baggage charges and has kept their seating comfortable. Last Frontier flight was RIDICULOUS!!"
Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Cons: "Luggage lost or left in Chicago with meds including insulin, had to stay in motel in Portland, ME to wait for morning flight. Hope luggage is on that flight. He needed his meds and only wanted to help when they said there was too much baggage. Mr. Perrin had only one carrying with everything in it. The flight itself was fine and he had good aisle seats and wheelchair at all points, but the lost luggage with the important meds caused a problem. We hope United found it."
Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "I arrived in Mexico on Monday, and I've yet to receive my luggage. The representatives keep reassuring me that my luggage is still in Houston and that it will be on the next flight. This is such an overwhelming experience because I don't know what is really going on."
Cons: "No in flight movie!!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, mindful, courteous at all times. The food was warm, well-cooked, fresh with a variety to please most eaters."
Cons: "The seats were a bit worn and mildly uncomfortable, but otherwise the flight was incredibly enjoyable."
Pros: "That I finally got home although it was 4 in the morning!"
Cons: "Delays started early in the afternoon and continued for several hours. At one point the flight was cancelled. About 30 minutes later another flight was created with a 1-3 am flight. We should have been given an option to fly this late or rebook for free. It was too late to travel at this point."
Pros: "Good FA's, ahead of schedule,"
