Cons: "Fresno needs a better runway so bigger planes can fly in"
Pros: "Things were new"
Cons: "Seats were smaller, legroom was less, seatbacks when fully upright push your heard forward so when I fell asleep, my head kept falling, NO FREE ENTERTAINMENT. They tell you to download the app mid-flight to get free entertainment, but you need to pay for wifi to access the app store."
Pros: "The ease of boarding."
Cons: "The air conditioner went out and it was quite warm."
Pros: "I was in premium plus and it was wonderful"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"
Cons: "The fight to flint was canceled last night beacuse they had no captian. What the heck!!! My mom is a senior citizen and the last thing she needed to be doing was schlepping all of her things to and from the airport in fridged temps. She’s battling a major cough and is now so exhausted!! This is totally unacceptable...not to have a captian?!???! Please respond as to how I will be reimbursed or what I can do to feel satisfied."
Pros: "The quick flight."
Cons: "The crew. It was obvious she does not like her job. She seemed as if the people are an inconvenience and everything was so repetishous."
Pros: "Smooth and seamless travel, great seats and punctual departure and arrival."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you."
Pros: "The lead flight attendant was great. Great sense of humor and very informative."
Cons: "baggage delivery time at SFO is so far behind other airlines"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Then they told us they might turn us around and take us back. It was anxiety provoking."
Pros: "Horrible smell in the cabin, lavatory out of service"
Cons: "Horrible smell in the cabin, lavatory out of service"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"
Pros: "Not sure why was contacted"
Cons: "I was forced to buy another ticket from another airline because it was cheaper, rather than change flights because of military orders. I also have to to another airport. zero customer service"
Pros: "Despite weather delay, the flight crew was very energetic and in a positive mood."
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."
Cons: "We were not told about the 20 min delay over the speaker from Newark to Flint Flight attendant basically ignored us for drinks and picking up garbage Newark to Flint"
Cons: "Delay after delay after delay"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment, unless you purchased Direct TV. And if you did not -- you had a super bright Direct TV commercial flashing in your eyes for 6 hours. Seat was broken and did not recline. I had a tight connection to make (20 minutes) and upon asking if they could call the gate or help me deplane quickly, stewardess's response was that "there are other flights tomorrow". Very unhelpful. It worked out, because my connecting flight was cancelled. At which point United told me they could get me on another flight FOUR DAYS later. Or a 9-hour bus to my destination two days later. Yes, a bus. So I ended up taking another flight two days later to a destination three hours from my original itinerary and renting a car at my own expense. Worst flight experience ever -- I will never fly United if I can't help it."
Pros: "Ease in check in and boarding."
Cons: "Plane size was small until I mentally adjusted."
Pros: "Very nice and flexible people and boarding was easy. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very cramped tight seating and the stewardesses were a little lax. Also, the overhead speaker was not loud enough to hear if you're sitting by the window as I was. They have no control over turning it up and if there was something to do with safety I would be in trouble."
Cons: "6'2" broad shoulders and uncomfortable. Sitting by the window meant my leg had to be 5 inches over due to the curvature of the plane. Both of my knees were on the back of the seat and I was at an angle. The lady next to me looked like she did't like me being turned toward her. Many extra seats including the emergency exit row (that has more room) was available when we took off but I was told we couldn't sit there without paying extra. Cheap 1 hour flight. Won't tolerate it for anything else."
Cons: "When I am flying across the country I expect that the movies should be included. If you're going to charge for it the prices of tickets need to come down since it used to be included."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No TVs and outlet to charge phone, computer did not work."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "United is always late it seems"
Pros: "I thought the whole experience was unorganized. The staff attempted to keep their calm but in the end they sounded just as organized as the flight line. (Referring to the trip as a whole)"
Cons: "I received 10 flight delayed notices on this trip. Five of the flight delayed notices were flight 6047. I missed a whole night in Oregon because of the delays and got in at 2 am into Charleston.. which was not ideal. I will not be recommending United Airlines. Also, for some reason the last flight was the coldest flight I've ever been on? I was tired, cold and miserable by the time I got to Charleston."
Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"
Pros: "On time!!!!"
Cons: "Only water served"
Pros: "Not much to like..."
Cons: "Once again, your people need to cater to the people that flight. The very first time I flew with United was December 14, 1982. I was 7. As an adult I have either flown with Delta or US Air. I went with United on this trip and I have to say that I am never going back on another United flight."
Pros: "I was very nervous, but the flight attendant made me feel at ease."
Pros: "They gave us free direct tv"
Cons: "There was no notification or update that the electronic systems aren't working it took over 3 hrs to get checked in then another 2hours to get an electronic boarding pass. Then when we got to Houston we have to wait for the gate to open because the gate shorted out. The worse experience ever"
Pros: "The flight attendant finally took care of it after I complained a couple of times."
Cons: "That you changed our seats, and, that there was no room in any of the overhead bins. So, the flight attendant told me that I needed to fight my way through the people coming toward me back up the aisle and check every overhead bin all the way back up to see if there was room for my one suitcase. Others had brought more than one bag up there. Finally they checked my one carry on bag. The ride was also really bumpy, worst that we've ever experienced. But that was due to weather conditions."
Pros: "Amazing flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours and the gate kept changing. Awful"
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "We had to walk almost halfway to Newark just to get to the flight. It was outside on the Tarmac at the very very very end of the terminal, I've never seen anything like it before. We also left a travel folder in the seat back pocket containing important documents and a sealed envelope of 1000$ USD. We immediately called to retrieve it and at first were told to file a complaint online, no matter how many times we tried to tell them that time was of the essence in this situation. We also begged the united airlines personnel to speak with a manager and he wouldn't put one on the phone. In the end all they could tell us is that the folder "wasn't there""
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "Boarding was terrible. Couldn't hear the PA's for boarding. Didn't get the boarding group thing since there was absolutely no division of where groups should be and no room for the group lines until it backs into the wall. Upon boarding I noticed we were in the center seating which was not what I had booked directly with United. When I had originally called, I explained there were four of us and the explained we could have 2 and 2 by a window but in separate groups or 2 and 2 behind the others in the middle rows. I wanted the window seats. Upon getting the res notification I noticed it was in the center so I called to have it switched to the window rows as previously requested and he said no problem and he would change them. I guess I should have followed up again since once on the plane we were in the center seats. I explained to one of the flight attendants since this was kind of a big deal. She was going to check with the gate agent and get back to me. I never heard from her again even though she knew where we were sitting. I guess she was busy and forgot! The four of us were tired and fell asleep which caused us to miss the meal which was served very early in the flight. No problem until later in the flight I asked the female flight attendant in the back if I could get a meal or some snacks for my daughter since she was now hungry. She told me she would check on it when the seat belt sign was turned off. At this time it had been smooth for quite some time and many passengers and other flight attendants were up and walking around. So if this fa was so concerned shouldn't she be telling everyone else to sit down instead of sitting in the back READING A BOOK? I still didn't have a problem as we patiently waited until she just didn't acknowledge us. Finally, I made the same request to a male fa while the same female was right behind him. He was great and came back soon with a meal I believe he may have retrieved from 1st class. He said the original ones in the back had been sitting to long. Great job to him. Sorry I do not have names. The Lufthansa crew on the way over to Frankfurt worked nearly nonstop, this crew hardly worked. Not impressed at all. By the way, I never write reviews."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for nearly 1 hour."
