Also with this being a connecting flight, it was nice that the group of five I was in was given an entire row to ourselves."
Pros: "Flew delta a few days ago and this wasn't an issue but you've gotta do better on the wifi and tv front. Part of my decision to fly delta is entertainment."

Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Good selection of movies available, but right half of touch screen was broken..."

Desk agent guaranteed baggage delivery within 24 hours. 4 days and 3 airports later, my bag reached my hotel. Fly Air France instead. The food is better and they won't lose your luggage."

Pros: "Service was fantastic everyone so friendly."
Cons: "Nothing. It was fantastic!"
Cons: "The new plane has no usable pouch to put small items in during takeoff and landing - you have to hold everything now, as the cargo net they use barely opens. As hard as the crew hammers you to put things away, having that pouch is handy. Also, we all know we are crammed in too tight."
Pros: "The food was quite good actually"
Cons: "comfort level was terrible"
Pros: "Everything was fine once we got replacement plane"
Cons: "Flight could be on time, not 4 hours late"

Pros: "I did arrive in Boston, eventually."
Cons: "The flight took off approximately 3.5 hours behind schedule and we boarded the flight and waited inside the aircraft for 2.5 hours...why did they do that? The flight attendants were offering water and trying to be as helpful as they could be.... but we're inside the plane, not going anywhere, so not much extra they can do."
Pros: "Nice new interior"
Cons: "3hour weather delay!"
Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."
Pros: "The flight departure was on time and boarding did not seem as challenging to me. Newer aircraft and very friendly crew. Is the friendly skies back?"
Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"
Pros: "Desk personnel were helpful."
Cons: "Desk personnel were helpful. Experience of boarding was confusing. Layover was very unpleasant. A six hour period, not much help in getting to a counter to change. It would’ve been good to have some direction and advice, even though the boarding area"
Pros: "The plane was nice and in good shape. They had beverage service for a very quick flight which is nice. Can't rate food or entertainment because only hour or so flight."
Cons: "It was freezing in the plane and I'm never cold. When I asked for a blanket they had none!!! They had just announced whatever they can do to make your flight more comfortable ask them. Not true, just words. Disappointed after the great treatment after flying ANA."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in the plane. There was confusion as they had passengers going both ways in the aisle .. this forced several ppl to stand in the aisle a long time. One of the air hostess had a major attitude. For example one passenger who was stuck in the middle of other passengers asked her politely if she could help him put the carry on in an overhead bin near her .. and she responded "I cant help you, you need to put it up yourself sir". Not something one expects. She was also terse with passengers, ordering them in an annoyed tone."
Cons: "Because of missed connection I had to go from Dulles to Reagan airport"
Pros: "the personnel were polite and personable and eager to help"
Pros: "Humor of pilot in Boston."
Cons: "Runway construction in Boston delayed flight out of Washington. No healthy snacks- Cheetos."
Pros: "NOTHING AT ALL WHATSOEVER!!!!!!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING!!!!!! I will never fly with united ever again even if it's the last airline left on earth!!!!"
Pros: "Stroopwafel and efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Very tightly packed seats; flight attendant complaint about collecting trash from outside vendors. I guess the obvious alternative is just to leave it in the seat!"
Cons: "sat on the plane for over an hour, no notification for 35-40 mins as to of why we were not leaving. no air conditioning was extremely hot"
Pros: "Pretty standard flight, crew was nice and polite."
Cons: "Very bare bones, no entertainment that you didn't have to pay for, not even a music channel. Food/drinks were bare minimum too, definitely suffered in comparison to my JetBlue flight home."
Pros: "We actually arrived early."
Cons: "Overheads taken with LARGE bags before we even boarded"
Pros: "Lovely, comfortable"
Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."
Cons: "There was a delay after boarding / door closing. We just sat at the gate without explanation so we arrived late in Boston. I assume we were held for some reason by the tower but an update from the pilot would have been nice."
Cons: "The lack of breakfast options. Lack of room."
Pros: "One of the friendliest and most customer friendly flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The boarding process Boarding should start from the rear rows to the front irrespective of what group shows on your ticket.some ended up with no storage space as they are in group 4 or 5"
Pros: "Meals, for a coach ticket, were surprisingly good."
Pros: "I liked there was a United employee at the gate to let us know where to go for our connecting flight."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Planes get delayed for all kinds of reasons both in and out f control of the airline. but something the airline does have control over is how it handles the sitsituatioby letting the passengers know their patience is appreciated. We sat on the runway for 2 and a half hours in summer afternoon in Washington DC because of weather in New York. Only once were we offered a small cup of tepid water. Then someone remembered the pets stuck in the cargo hold, and we went back to the gate. After deplaning, we stood at the gate for thirty minutes and weren't given vouchers for refreshments on the concourse nor bottles or at least bottles of water. Finally we were called for boarding, and then 10 minutes after that, the first passenger actually got on. After a second boarding we made it out to the runway... where we sat for another 40 minutes. Keep in mind, this particular plane has no seat outlets nor in seat entertainment systems, so most people had either dead or dying phones at this point, rendering the "complimentary in flight entertainment" available through the United app useless. Once we were finally in air, we weren't comped drinks or Internet or any other amenity offered by United. I've been stuck in situations like this on other airlines, but they worked to provide the barest glimmer of hospitality. Fly the friendly skies? Nah, we'll overcharge you for everything because our business model is unsustainable but our majority shareholders couldn't care less. A Star Alliance Member™."
