Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Cons: "Red-booked from cancelled flight. On this leg they neglected to give me a boarding pass on app and gate agent was irtitated that I didnt have one. On flight; fidgety person in front of mr was in annoyingly squeaky chair. I was told I could not switch seats because of weight balance (I'm 135 lbs)."

Pros: "Flight Crew were professional and accommodating throughout the trip."
Cons: "AA should inform customers via its App when they are the carrier for another airline. That way, one would know which terminal at LHR to go to. Check in was not good as there was no staff to assist or even an information kiosk in the immediate area. Had to go looking for one with all my luggage; they were having a group 'chat'. Then, instead of being helpful when asked to change seats, commenced to quiz me about why and what I did during my trip."

Horrible, if that's how AA treats their dedicated service members!"

Cons: "I had a connecting flight in DFW to BOS. My plane left late from OKC, giving very little time to get to my connecting flight in DFW. The flight arrived in BOS and I got to the gate at 6:15pm; with a flight departure of 6:25pm. I felt the gate agent handled the situation very poorly. Instead of letting me, and another passenger with the same situation as mine, let us know why the gate was closed 10 minutes prior to departure was rude and brusque and said sorry, nothing could be done. A simple explanation of why we couldn't board would have gone a long way. She finally barked out for us to go to Customer Service to re-route us. Customer Service was very slow and the agents had attitudes. I did get on an AA flight the next morning, including comp vouchers for dinner and breakfast, but I missed an entire day of the conference I was attending in Boston."
Pros: "Friendly crew and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Older plane without individual entertainment choice. No food other than a single bag of pretzels offered."
Cons: "I've got to the airport at 4:30am because my flight was at 8:00am. Unfortunately I had to wait until 12:30pm to take another flight because American Airlines didn't have a flight crew for our aircraft. They did not refund money for the waiting, they didn't give any voucher for breakfast, they just gave us chips and drinks. People were very anxious and mad about the sInitiation."

Cons: "My son was flying on United from Colorado Springs to Denver, then on to Seattle for Thanksgiving. He rushed through as quickly as he could, but the door to the place was closing and it left 10 minutes early. United recorded him as a 'No Show', and there policy now is to cancel the entire ticket is you miss any segment of a round trip ticket. Thus, his entire $900 was forfeited, he couldn't even pay a change fee to catch a later flight. I hate American, and now I hate United just as much. These airlines shills have been allowed to go out of business when they last filled for bankruptcy. We fly in quite a few international airlines, and outside of Alaska, Jet Blue and Delta, maybe Southwest, US carriers are absolutely bottom of the barrel and it's clear that their employees don't care whatsoever. Will never book again in United or American. I'll try Amtrak before either of those carriers."
Pros: "We boarded quickly. That was nice."
Cons: "The plane was old and tiny with barely any room for carry on. And no in flight entertainment or WiFi or anything. Bummer."

Pros: "On time flight"
Pros: "Colorado Springs is one of my favorite airports. It is well run and maintned, friendly and efficient"
Cons: "The seat in the exit row was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Delayed flights leading to incredibly tight connection times, staff inconsistent with messaging re the source of the delay, zero compassion for customers, offering $700-$1,400 to get off the plane when you charge $200 to change a flight 2 weeks in advance is especially galling! Will not fly with United again whenever there is a viable alternative to my destination."
Pros: "Great service! Smooth flight!"
Pros: "The planes weren’t overly packed and everyplane was on time"
Pros: "Everyone was really nice."
Cons: "Not enough free food options for active duty flyers."
Pros: "I really like how your flights are inexpensive compared to others when trying to purchase a last minute ticket."
Cons: "The last two times I traveled ( I flew with United Airlines ) and both times my flights were delayed. The first time it was delayed by 4 hours and made me miss an appointment. The second time it was delayed by over 13 hours. It was nice that United had put me in a hotel room for the night, but again it took away from time in which I needed to be somewhere else."
Pros: "Nice staff, helpful front desk and flight attendants."
Cons: "No wifi, carry on fee, small seats"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Why can’t the plane be boarded from the back to the front. Seems like that would be easier for all passengers. Also, I picked assigned seats when I purchased the tickets and my husband and I where separated in different rows."
Pros: "I typically dont fly with united, and this was a typical experience, staff was not friendly, terminal and gate change at last minute after I walking all the way to the gate, then another delay after we were boarded, now this was more airport related then United, but after they told us it was a 45min delay someone asked if we can use our phone or computer and the answer was a stern no with no explanation until someone got really upset, just not a professional experience, and this was why I don't fly united. But I had no choice this time."
Pros: "Quick Hop"

Pros: "On time, flight attendants were friendly"
Pros: "Flew to Austin instead of Houston because of weather. Then flew to Houston after 4 hours chilling on a plane in Austin!"

Cons: "Multiple long delays."
Pros: "Flights were fine once we got off the ground."

Cons: "The plane was small and bags barely fit on board"

Cons: "Upgraded seat on Airbus to phone charger and there wasn't one!"
Pros: "I am fine with the airline other than a 5 hour delay. I I will never use Kayak again."
Pros: "Everyone we dealt with was unbelievably kind and helpful. They had a wheelchair at the gate and helped push my disabled brother which was such a help for my elderly parents to make their connections. When I got my parents their tickets I was very apprehensive that it might be difficult making the connections but thanks to United's wonderful service their whole experience was fantastic. In the future I will always try to book United."
