We were late getting to our connecting flight. The flight crew was immensely helpful in getting us on the plan and on our way home.
Pros: "United Airlines is putting customers and employees at risk. It is an insane and absurd as it is disgraceful. During boarding you will see painted arrows on the ground urging you to be "6 feet apart" from fellow travellers. You will then enter a the plane and be 6 inches apart as the plane will be FULL. Fly Delta where they block off middle seats and social distance. United CEO Scott Kirby does not care about customers or employees. The absurdity of the juxtaposition between the "6 feet" signs in the boarding area and the COMPLETE ABSENCE of distancing on board tells you everything you need to know about United."
Cons: "Practice social distancing on the plane. There's a pandemic. This is the NUMBER ONE thing you should be doing to assure safety of passengers and crew."
Pros: "good crew. plane was showing of wear. torn pockets and worn out seats."
Cons: "newer aircraft or refurbished one."
Pros: "Small plane ,comfortable seats,"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "More comfortable and spacious seating, more reasonable priced food for the quality you get"
Cons: "No room in the seats at all"
Pros: "The crew was typical, the seat was on the aisle, which I prefer, but kind of in the way and I kept hitting my head."
Cons: "The snacks are not good at all, next time I'll take my own. They should just quit serving them and charging us for them."
Pros: "The flight was excellent. My luggage dding"
Cons: "Having my luggage."
Pros: "Great gate staff at each leg. Fantastic crew DEN to IAH"
Cons: "Nothing really. The layovers allowed me time to work on schoolwork and to enjoy lounges."
Pros: "Flight was ok the first flight from Btv to IAd was not great the plane made a lot of noise during takeoff and landing sounded like the ceiling panels were going too fall off as well as other noises"
Cons: "Lots of noises crew were good . Price of luggage was outrageous"
Pros: "Love this direct flight! So nice!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice, but not terribly attentive. Chicken option for dinner was too spicy and no warning about it or I would have chosen something else."
Cons: "We were being bumped around constantly all night. I’m sure there is a reason the pilot didn’t change path or altitude, but it made sleeping impossible."
Pros: "The wafer caramel cookies were great but no substitute for an actual breakfast."
Cons: "You have to pay an insane rate for the Wifi. Access to United.com and the United app weren't available so checking on connections was impossible."
Pros: "Boarding seemed efficient"
Cons: "In flight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "Aircraft was very nice...seats good, clean"
Cons: "Way too hot on the plane, Service was poor. No wifi working. many people had to go to desk...seat assignments stamped see at gate."
Pros: "I was able to make my flight."
Cons: "Crew were not friendly or helpful while boarding."
Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "Customer service, being nickel and dimed, the staff told me if I don't like it to fly Jet Blue"
Cons: "Poor communication and terrible management of bad situations."
Pros: "Crew on the plane were amazing and boarding experience was very efficient, which is less commonly seen at O'Hare so it was nice."
Pros: "I like watching "Hacksaw Ridge" on the flight."
Cons: "I was only offered a cookie, no snack mix. Not a big deal. The landing was terrifying. The winds must've been bad?"
Pros: "At least they made an effort and it was finally resolved."
Cons: "Fact that the plane was not checked properly and was about to take off and go back to the gate."
Pros: "OK service, hard landing"
Cons: "Scheduled times were kept"
Cons: "Need to pay to watch TV"
Cons: "It was delayed a few minutes"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Pros: "I left wallet on plane. And I didn't realize until After I left aurport While it has not been found yet, United reps really did everything to find. I Thank them for the effort"
Pros: "Wife is legally blind and asked for help deboarding plane. Flight attendant refused. A passenger in front of her helped her. This is terrible service."
Cons: "Service,and checking .. most people at ticket counter"
Pros: "Too many delays to be able to take the flight."
Pros: "I liked that when the plane actually arrived to newark that the boarding was swift. The pilot and flight crew were good."
Cons: "The plane was late. I flew out of Detroit because it was cheaper than flying out of Cleveland where I live. So due to this flight being late I had to pay more then expected to get my car out of the parking garage and got home an hour and a half later than expected which got me home at 3am versus 130am (original time I would have been home IF the plane would have been on time)."
Pros: "The crew on every leg of the flight was very professional. Having one TSA entry point for eight gates at Brulington really slows things down, I realize this has nothing to do with United though."
Cons: "I wish instead of me when I missed my flight due to TSA that United themselves would have tried to get me out on another flight that same day. They assumed I wanted only one stop, when in fact it didn't matter to me so long as I wasn't stuck another overnight. I used Kayak in the terminal to discover a different flight that same day and was lucky to get on as each flight was fully booked."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "United can't get anywhere on time. It was a beautiful day no weather issues and we were still 30 minutes late. This is the 7 th time this summer there have been issues with united out of Bangor or Portland. I'm going to always take jet blue in the future."
Pros: "seats aren't so cramped."
Cons: "too cold. could have a few blankets on hand.."
Pros: "Good service, quick flight, food/entertainment N/A"
Cons: "Checked my carry on even though there were many open overhead bins and I explained we only had an hour layover in Dulles"
Pros: "Quick easy no delays"
Cons: "Cat meowing loudly in seat in front of us"
Cons: "Lost my bag"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The whole arrangement going through Air Canada but flying United. I never got confirmation numbers from United at all. I had to call Air Canada to get confirmation codes for United. Getting confirmation codes from Air Canada had no real significance with United. United would not confirm seating. When United finally confirmed seating, the seats were not together. Then United changed the flight three times and never gave updated confirmation codes. The last change came the day before our departure. Then United charged another $138.00 for seats that were assigned and never informed us. I am still trying to get the $138.00 back."
Cons: "No snack or entertainment."
Cons: "No food, was very warm, no movies unless you use your credit card."
Pros: "Good service, good movies, fast flight"
Cons: "They could not get the sky way to work AND we had to take the Dulles bus then escalators then train then escalators and still a fair amount of walking and waiting to get to ground transport-- 1 hour from landing!"
Pros: "Flight was boarded efficiently. Left the gate on time and got in early."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Pros: "the staff was friendly and helpful, boarding was fast"
Cons: "The plane was a bit dirty, crumbs on my seat for the first flight but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."
Pros: "The pilots at the front were friendly as we departed, thanking the passengers."
Cons: "The line up process at LaGuardia was unorganized based on the preassigned number boarding system. There was no space to organize 1-5 as assigned on the boarding passes. Going and coming from LaGuardia, the flight gate was changed multiple times, then there was at least an hour and a half delay on the ground and an hour in the plane. We had to reroute to Neward because of air traffic situations, but the ground crew was not ready nor efficient in helping the throngs of people find transportation or understand the process The crew was sour, and when simply asked for a spoon, the guy said, "later" and of course, he never brought one. There was no friendliness or cordiality from these people. We were like cattle to them. I have never seen it so bad. I have watched what used to be a great airline with Continental, decline to a consistently subpar experience with United. I will look for other airlines to fly in the future. My experiences with Southwest have been much better in the last two years."
Pros: "Everything was on time and good"
Cons: "United made no accommodation for a late-arriving connecting flight. The United schedule required changing terminals and a race to the next gate -- then closed the doors five minutes early even though there were passengers sprinting from the other terminal to make their connection. They knew the connecting flight had been delayed; they should have waited five minutes to let us on. The result was a nine-hour wait in Newark Airport for the next United flight."
