I was carrying with me my service dog and a bag containing an expensive medication (it couldn’t go on the top bin). Despite being in the comfort class and having the seat next to me empty, we were tight for space. The flight attendants were unreasonable and forced me to put my medication on the top bin despite the fact I had told them it was extremely delicate, that it that to go upright, and that I needed to keep it with me. They did not listen and pressured me into giving them the medication. The medication could have easily gotten broken. Thankfully it didn’t but this is no way to treat a human being."
Pros: "Training on delta app usage and being hospitable to injured customers"
Cons: "Timing and not providing accurate information; Phillip at Las Vegas airport was unaware of how to purchase and pay for a checkin bag via the delta app. I️ didn’t have a working card and then realized by the time I️ needed to check in that it was too late. 8 hours later I’m on a red eye flight for a guaranteed seat bc of being put on stand bye. I️ stay in Vegas for 1 night and my ankle swells the next morning and I’m unable to move my legs. Sent to the hospital and have been in Vegas since 11/20"
Pros: "Great ground staff and flight crew, except they should as warn and apologize regarding the limited gate as access so far from the check-in."

Pros: "Entertainment is very good"

When i spoke to the flight attendant of my original itineray, he was extremenly rude and shooed me off. The supervisor was slightly more helpful but ended up being just as bad when i informed him of his rude employee. Even the new itinerary put me on a delayed flight. One choice of snack on a 5 hour flight. Overall, not flying with united again."
Pros: "There was nothing special about this flight. It wasn't the worst I have been on but not best."
Cons: "Confusion on boarding. Flight delayed almost 2 hours. Passengers should have been informed by text earlier. I was at airport when the text came in that flight was delayed.

Pros: "NON STOP FLIGHT"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats with no leg room."
Cons: "The terminal number on my ticket was wrong and when me and some other customers asked the flight lady what was going on she was of very little help. Not only that but she was making a personal phone call. So I had to rush to the other end and then just to find out that they didn't have enough room to put my carry on so I had to place it enbetween my legs which made for an even more uncomfortable flight. Also one of the flight attendant was particularly rude and kept saying she had to do her job in a very rude tone to the point were an older retired man told her he's worked too hard in his life time to be talked to like that. Overall the poorest plane experience I've ever had and I fly quite a bit."
Pros: "Fast service!"
Pros: "People were nice."
Cons: "No wifi and no food."
Cons: "The 777-200 is geting old"
Pros: "Not much, except the fact that it could have been worse."
Cons: "- Cheap quality food. And less in quantity. Less options. And they ran out of meal options even though I indicated them at the time of booking. - Not so clean - Sickness bags were used ones and had something in them. Clearly, they were not replaced. Toilets didn't have basic supplies like moisturizers. Not to mention they were super cramped. - Entertainment system was out of 60s. Small LCD and were of the smallest resolution and viewing angles - made watching anything akin to watching those cam rips floating all over internet. - Cramped leg room. And the premium seat didn't have any better room. Overall, one of the poorest flights I have ever flown on. Even Air India has much better planes and service."
Cons: "We waited on the plane for 45 minutes without explanation...finally we were told the caterer had personnel issues and the food delivery was late. I MISSED MY CONNECTION IN HOUSTON OVER THIS SND HAD TO TAKE THE NEXT FLIGHT 5 HOURS LATER! TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. Entire crew was very casual and unmoved by my situation....UNited you FAILED Miserably!"
Pros: "It was standard"
Cons: "They loss my bags, in-flight entertainment was at a cost"
