Cons: "Many other travelers were not wearing their masks and the flight was completely packed."
Cons: "The paid food choices are rather odd."
Pros: "The crew were kind and helpful and kept us hydrated"
Cons: "The seats are so tightly packed that it’s quite uncomfortable"
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "Love the movies available on the United app"
Cons: "The A/C was blowing ice cubes at me, which wasn't the worst because it was pretty warm yesterday, but still it was less than ideal."
Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"
Pros: "The pilot and flight crew were outstanding.... I’ve never had a smoother flight ... I told them as I was existing the plane"
Pros: "The crew was great throughout the 12 hour flight, the entertainment was varied as always, the flight time for departure and arrival was almost spot on."
Cons: "Due to the fact that I didn’t know my gate number and that my bags were going straight to destination, I waited for all the bags to be dispensed at the carousel which never came. I later rushed through security check and told one of the officers that my connecting flight’s last call was in 15 min. She then placed me in front of 20-25 people. I was the last person to board the plane. All of this could have been avoided had the printing machine write my gate number and the ticketing crew tell me about my bag. They were too casual overall. I want United to give me a cash credit for my next flight. Every flight that I’ve taken with them has always had a hiccup on one leg of the flight or the other."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled the flights and blamed united airlines. The united airlines would not help and finally ended up having to stay in Frankfurt and now have to leave for Lisbon tomorrow and then onwards."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Most of crew had no concern for anyone. One of the worst flights on United in several years."
Cons: "First flight was delayed so we missed our flight. The least they could have done was given us a pass to the lounge to relax considering we came in on a red eye or a lunch voucher. The staff was a bit rude."

Cons: "Running through Ohare to catch my connection"
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved upon (less sugar and carbs, more fresh vegetables/fruits)"
Pros: "Crew at the airport and on the plane were wonderful!"
Cons: "I don't understand the purpose of basic economy. I bought my ticket months ahead of time and paid over $300 for it. Only to find out when it was time to board that I wasn't guaranteed a seat. EVEN THOUGH I BOUGHT A TICKET AND IT WASNT CHEAP. I was put on a waitlist and finally got a ticket after boarding was supposed to be over. I was appalled by the whole thing. Doing away with basic economy or just giving those who buy those tickets the basic rights that should come with an airline ticket should be considered. How can you deny someone a seat if they bought a ticket months ahead of time? What if I wasn't lucky and couldn't get a seat? Wait until the next flight hours later and get put on a waitlist there too? Something needs to change."
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working"
Pros: "We got there safely and on time."
Cons: "Bathrooms too small and unsanitary. Sick people on board spreading germs. Headphones fall out of kids ears. Airplane too cold. Food not good. Bread is terrible. Wasteful packaging and serving of food. Nowhere to throw away trash. Bad timing and content of meals based on final destination."
Cons: "DIRTY PLANES, POOR SERVICE. DELAYED FLIGHT AGAIN"
Cons: "Awful delayed by hours."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "You cancelled my flight when I was in chicago to cincinnati United did not offer me anything no hotel, money back nothing and I had to be somewhere very important I didn't have my thing because it was in my suitcase which i didn't get till sunday. Ended up renting a car and driving the rest of the way. Never offer anything to help me. Then United messed up my plane ticket on my way back home almost miss my flight."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight. Good personnel, friendly. Seats were OK, managed to get some rest."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Absolutely NO leg space."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. No problem with boarding/departure/baggage claim"
Cons: "Couldn't recline in exit row. No pillow. No foot rest"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was excellent. Handled communication and our delay very well. Things changes once we were off the plane."
Cons: "Technical difficulties happen but once we had to deplane the communication has been about non-existent. I'm just glad that I don't have to get a boarding pass for a connecting flight like a lot of others on the flight."
Cons: "On all 4 of my United flights this past week, I could not connect to the peivate screening for longer than 23 minutes. A bit annoying really."
Cons: "We have been members of Star Alliance for over 20 years with millions of miles in the book, and though I have avoid flying with the US companies of the Alliance, we too United round trip to Miami via Fort Lauderdale, flying down I was surprised that with the short flight the in flight entertainment was not free? We paid extra for extra leg room and exit seats, though what was left was given away free, which felt a bit unfair for those who paid in advance extra? Most traumatic was on the return trip, at the gate as we were removed from our prepaid seats, due to the fact that the ground crew checking us in asked us abruptly weather we could assist in the case of emergency, I replied, "Yes", but my partner was confused and did not understood the question nor the context as to what or why she was being asked! As I tried to explained that she was German and that the question had confused her and didn't primped reply, the crew stope us from boarding the flight, and demanded that our seats be changed for someone who could understand English! We explained that we both understood and spoke English perfectly well... But no one was going to reason with us and quickly removed us from our seats and had us put into the back sectioned which was without extralegal room and proceeded to give our seat out to another couple who volunteered... Without charging extra... It was appalling their behavior and unreasonable gestures towards their customers and at that a Gold member of the Alliance. We will no longer book flights with United no matter what comes, even if we have to fly around the world to get there pay triple etc. It felt a hint of racism and with the state of things, I do hope others take heed in consideration of flying with this airline. Thank you"
Pros: "Left right on time."
Pros: "Felt like a bothersome passenger even though I did not ask for anything. The snack was tossed at me in an empty seat instead of handed to me."
Cons: "Everything! Fabulous flight"
Pros: "This flight was On Time.."
Cons: "We paid extra to have seating together in an upgraded to business class. We paid an additional $89.00 each for this option on top of our airfare. When we got to the boarding gate and we were ready to have our ticket scanned we were told, "unfortunately, you two won't be able to be seated together, we had a seat change that affected your seating." then we were asked to go to the counter at the gate to see what could be done, but there was nothing that could be done, the flight was full. So our money was collected but due to the mess up on seating and loss of our $600.00 epi pen medication we didn't take the flight."
Pros: "Good communication and polite."
Pros: "I was very late and the staff made huge efforts to get me through security and onboard!"

Cons: "Flight attendant woke me up for beverage service. Sleep was way more important."
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
