Firstly the flight was delayed, these things happen but nevertheless I end up missing my connecting Qatar flight to Belgrade, put into a horrible little hotel for 24hrs without my bag, no clothes or toiletries. At one point during the flight once everyone had their chairs reclined one hostess told me to not put mine so far back?!?! Then when asked well then person in front of me has to move theirs forward and her response no they don’t. Absolutely shocking. To think I wanted to upgrade to business class.

Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."
Cons: "They re issued my boarding pass Doha, for Dallas flight and gave us the last seat on the plane, even though I chosed the seat at the time of booking. Food was ok, but when we asked for the chicken they didn’t had it. It’s an international flight of 15 hours with food shortage???"

Cons: "seat was not much comfortable"
Pros: "طيران ممتاز"
Pros: "The crew on my side of the cabin was very good."

Pros: "Excellent Service"
Pros: "All Qatar employees were friendly and helpful. A great flight!"
Cons: "Requested Asian vegetarian mean but available was non vegetarian. Led screen did not working."
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Cons: "I checked in a couple of hours after checkin open but unfortunately I could not get my preferred window seat, got a middle instead. But still the leg room would have been ok but the middle seat (second row behind the bilkhead row) had the front passenger's entertainment system arranged across the footwell, not sideways, so it completely blocked the footwell and prevented any stretching of the legs. I am a tall passenger and this caused much discomfort on the flight, I had to keep getting up to walk around. I also found the seat bottom quite uncomfortable (not enough padding I think), butnghis could have been made worse by the footwell issue. Regards Neil"
Pros: "Stewardess (Thai origin) - can't recall her name... Simi something or another... was very helpful... great experience!"
Pros: "The crew members are amazing."
Cons: "Terrible. Awful. Could not possibly recommend this airline to anyone."
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Pros: "Journey was ok."
Cons: "Flight was on runway for more than 45 mins. I had to run to catch my connecting flight. If the flight had to wait then why on runway after landing. Anyways I barely caught my connecting flight."

Pros: "Crew was friendly. Flight left on time!!!!!! :)"
Cons: "Food was served too late. Unable to get a bottle of water as I was dehydrated."
Cons: "My credit card was processed and I dint receive my e-ticket. i couldn't travel and my money is taken out of my card."
Pros: "The staff was amazing! I started I get a headache- probably because of low blood sugar, and one of the attendant provided me with constant water, ginger ale, and chocolates. It was so sweet- she didn't have to make sure I was okay, but she chose to our the kindness of her heart!"
Cons: "The cramped quarters. I had a very tall person sit practically on my lap the entire flight, as he leaned his chair back the entire time. It left no room for me to use the table for my laptop. I was fortunate that no one sat next to me on my first flight, but for the second one I was not so lucky – so I couldn't work on my schoolwork."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with NO NOTIFICATION. I learnt about it when i reached the airport - 3 hours before departure. And there was absolutely no one from Lufthansa available - innperson or on phone."

Cons: "Flight delayed 30 min. Customs in ORD overwhelmed by two planes coming at once. Missed my connection and had to stay overnight."

Pros: "Flight crew was amazing, as well as the first meal....restaurant quality."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I was not on this flight."
Pros: "Entertainment is good with literally hunreds of movies. Even the screens are fairly good."

Cons: "My luggage was destroied ;-("
Pros: "Crew nice. Plenty of food"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic. Very long lines and not managed well"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "The usual flight discomfort, but the seat in front of me was broke. The person in it struggled to stay out of my lap, which I appreciated. The connecting flight had a non-functional screen and the reading light broke and flew across the cabin."
Pros: "The service."
Pros: "All good - flight, service all great!!!"
Cons: "Right before boarding I checked to see about purchasing an upgrade to business for my Wife and I because she was not feeling well and the added room would help. The Rude desk clerk didn’t even check and just spit out no upgrades. Yet once on the plane there were several empty business class seats and they stayed empty the entire flight."
Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."
Pros: "Exceptionally clean gate area and aircraft. Professional and friendly gate crew as well as flight crew. Well treated as a passenger. Genuine."
Cons: "Nothing noted..."
Pros: "The whole journey with Lufthansa went smoothly without any delay. The transist time is just right. The check in is online is straight forward and the flight information is very clear. I will certainly recommend Lufthansa to anyone."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like."
Pros: "Comfortable and clean planes. Flight was on time. Free drink!"
Cons: "Check in with checked baggage required an agent. As with almost every flight in Europe, boarding was chaotic, not following zones, priority or people requiring assistance/gate agents did not enforce the boarding rules."
Cons: "Being sick on the way back home from my Vacation!"
Pros: "The boarding process was orderly, the seats comfortable, plenty of luggage space, excellent food -- one of the best economy class flights I've taken."
Pros: "Going out the crew left something to be desired, the crew on the return trip was outstanding! Friendly, courteous, caring, efficient."
Cons: "Ran out oof meal choices twice"
Pros: "Roomy seats and good space between rows. Didn't have the feel of being on a cattle car like most flights in the US"
Cons: "Boarding process. Felt like a mad dash just to scan your boarding pass."
Cons: "The vegan meal. No airline appears to know how to make a healthy and tasty meal."
Cons: "We were late, had to run through the airport just to catch our next flight"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Too many stairs, far away from the connection flight."
Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"
Pros: "The professionalism and warmth of the staff, the food, the wet towels before a meal. We appreciated the constant supply of beverages to keep us hydrated."
Cons: "The disjointed announcements which kept disrupting the movie we were watching. It would be helpful to have one single announcement instead of breaking it up into several smaller units. We had a serious issue with a passenger in front of us who kept jamming his seat back into our knees. The flight staff did a great job of trying to resolve the issue. But the bottom line is that the seats are way too close together for such a long flight."
Cons: "I was denied boarding on the Dublin to Munich leg of my connecting flight from Newark to Munich. My ticket was booked through Lufthansa, but the transatlantic leg of my trip was operated by United. When checking in with United in Newark, I received two boarding passes, one for each leg of the trip. I arrived on time in Dublin for my flight to Munich and tried to board the plane for Munich with the boarding pass I had printed in Newark. After scanning my ticket, the Lufthansa employees at the gate informed me that they had no record of me or my plane ticket in their system. I showed them the email confirmation for my ticket, but they still could not find any record of my ticket in their online system. The employees seemed more concerned with boarding all passengers as quickly as possible than assisting me. After being denied boarding, I had to go back through passport control to change my flight, and ended up getting to Munich nearly 6 hours behind schedule and missed an entire day of vacation. A Lufthansa employee told me that out of every partner in the STAR alliance, United is the ONLY airline they have had this problem with. I find this inexcusable, I will be AVOIDING ANY United/Lufthansa connecting flight from now on."
Pros: "The overall feeling of this flight was 'relaxed'...after getting over the fact, that this was a huge (two story) airplane. Short flight from Denver to Frankfurt...only 8 hours:)"
Cons: "I would have loved to be offered eye shades and ear plus, since most passengers watched movies and i wanted to sleep:)."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was late, They kept us in the plane for 20min And bagages are delay...."
Pros: "non stop to Frankfurt very timely scheduleing was able to find reasonably priced flight to meet my travel needs."

Cons: "On the long haul flight the seats started to hurt after a few hours. The seats on the short haul flight felt more comfortable."
Pros: "flight attendants were polite and there were two meal services."
Cons: "The flight was full and the seats were extremely close together with little room. When the person in front of me leaned back I had no room and it was hard to see the movie screen."
Cons: "Foods usually not bad but the sausage and beef was absolutely disgusting."
Pros: "On time, clean, helpful"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Cons: "I was very uncomfortable in my seat between two fellow passengers who were large individuals. For a flight duration of over ten hours, it was terrible to repeatedly have to negotiate space with them as they were spilling into my chair space. I also had to insist they not extend their legs into my foot well."
Pros: "Selection of movies in the entertainment section. Food"
Pros: "The seats were roomy, the flight staff was attentive and very efficient. The plane was clean and offered many different movies to watch. They even had new releases on those list along with games and music. I truly enjoyed my first experience with this airline!"
Cons: "They offered alternative media for people with dietary restrictions and I didn't know this when I booked. I'm gf and they could have accommodated, had I known."
Pros: "Service and food were excellent. Plane was clean, on time, smooth ride."
Cons: "Need slightly more leg room in seats"
Pros: "short and comfortable"
Pros: "very clean, food was excellent, on board entertainment was excellent too. staff very friendly."

Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Cons: "It's KLM. What else do you need to know."
Pros: "Confort and kindness"
Cons: "It was too cold"
Pros: "Crew good and seat OK but not exceptional for business class"
Cons: "Food was average - main course could have been better. Range of movies ok but not great"
Cons: "KLM crew exceed our expectations"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."

Pros: "The flight crew was so friendly and the food was really good."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and effortless."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything."
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."

Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Unexpected refueling stop. 2 hr delay Lost connection Reached destination after 18 hr delay"
Pros: "Crew were great, food, entertainment, seat and everything else was great as well."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "Cabin Crews was extremely good and hospital. Transfer point staff buggy / wheal Chair was good and second to none."
Cons: "Transfer point needs upgrade."
Cons: "The overall travel was good, no wifi and the entertainment system had a faulty headphone connection, and no place to charge devices other than through a USB port"
Pros: "Best airline in the business quick efficient and outstanding service What else can you say"
Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "The flight AMS to MEX was smooth, very helpful personnel on board, we enjoyed a bit more space and the seat seemed a bit more comfortable."
Cons: "Besides the seat relative comfort, it did not recline much at all, i wondered what the extra money (at least $5 or $600) got us. The food, wine/ beer service was same as regular economy, the boarding took place at same time as economy, no drink before take-off if only sparkling water. And the plane was old generation 747 and the entertainment was same vintage: screen was not very bright and the selection of films was poor. No plug to charge electronics. We were disappointed with KLM when comparing with other airline companies offerings when you book in Premium Economy."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "Arrived early!"
Cons: "Boarding seemed disorganized."
Pros: "Everything is top notch for an airline company."
Cons: "Nothing.... I enjoyed every moment of the flight."
Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Good flights. Good prices."
Pros: "The staff were professional and friendly The food was very good and plentiful The inflight entertainment has lots of choices The bathrooms remained clean All in stark contrast with BA with who I did the same flight 2 weeks ago and all the above points were very poor"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Cons: "They stole my money"
Pros: "Service impeccable!"
Cons: "They have one line of executive class after the kitchen and toilet, is very noisy."
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Pros: "The supplied pack of toothpaste/toothbrush"
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Pros: "Short-hop flight, fit for purpose."
Pros: "Very little if any."
Cons: "Aircraft was not very clean,the staff seamed quite harsh at times when speaking to customers. The food was really quite poor but it was a short flight to be honest. Overall not as pleasant as the China Southern flights. I would not like to choose them again unless i had to."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Cons: "Horrible. First, we lost a suitcase. It could happen but for two days they did nothing and only told us stories (so as not to use the word lies). Within a few hours (and thanks to airline assistance) we were able to locate the suitcase. Even then it took them two days to bring it to us, two precious days off our planned vacation (7 days) At the end of the shortened vacation, we got to the chek in, and told that since the ticket I had purchased form them two months earlier was too cheap ... and since the flight was Over booked, they would take me off the plane if all the passengers would arrive. It's unnecessary to describe what I felt until the plane took off. They apologize constantly, but do nothing practical. a bae company. no me nor my freinds/family will go with KLM"
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Quick and easy. Just a 35 minute flight. Wish they could all be like that."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "The attendant at the desk was very accommodating towards my needs."
Cons: "Plane wasn’t well maintained. Limited food and entertainment."
Cons: "When flight is delayed (by taxing for 45min or delayed take off of 3h40) allow passengers who are trying to connect disembark first."
Cons: "Crew was late. Delayed the flight by 45 minutes."
Pros: "the arrival on the other end"
Cons: "on tarmac 1-1/2 hours conflicting info....went from delay due to traffic/weather, to extended flight time due to reroute, to asking 10 people to volunteer to get off or 10 would be chosen to have to get off, 4 people volunteered, was holding my breath to be “picked off” when the 4 people were let back on and we took off an hour late. the flight steward spoke so unreasonably fast you couldn’t understand a word she said and she had an overall bad attitude....very disappointing from United"
Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional."
Cons: "Flight was 50 minutes late."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Poor service in first class. Made me feel like I was bothering her"
Cons: "Ended up at Logan."
Pros: "Window seat"
Cons: "4 hour delay and checked bags on different flight"
Pros: "Smooth flight and landing."
Cons: "Too long for the hardness of the seats. Flight was endles."
Pros: "on time,quick boarding,nice&pleasant crew,online check in"
Cons: "seat is narrow and short depth.poor back and thigh support."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Just about everything. United Airlines is a transporter for farm stocks. It’s unsuitable to carry humans. Never has and never will be. Fly it only as your last resort."
Pros: "Flight to Italy fine"
Cons: "Flight was a Lufthansa flight operated by United, sold by webjet...there is not a United counter in Malpensa. Train was delayed, we arrived an hour b4 Flight, would not let us board. United is offering FREE re ticketing but webjet is extorting 480.00 additional on top of the 641.00 ticket...6 calls to webjet..several hours of frustration. I have used kayak for years...I will research reviews on all future purchases thru this web sites associates. Kakak...webjet is creepy company...check their references...yuk!"
Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "The last minute emergency flight was not terribly priced"
Cons: "I was notified when there was going to be a delay, but not notified when my flight was cancelled due to the airline not having a crew. Really? No crew? Gave my mother a voucher for a motel stay, but failed to notify her that there would be no shuttle that comes to the airport after 10pm. She is not great with technology and was stranded at the airport until her re-scheduled flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"
Pros: "It was a long day with the delays which ended in a missed flight to Vancouver. Great service in providing accommodations and food voucher. Much appreciated. Made getting home a day later as I have another 6 1/2 hour drive to get home. Overall a good trip."
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Connection flight times were a little close which caused me to rush from different sections of New ark airport. I almost missed my flight home to Providence so if connecting flights could be scheduled with a little more wiggle room that would be great."
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Pros: "It all went smoothly"
Cons: "I'm still here never got out"
Cons: "Air attendant is disruptive and throwing her own opinions at people without listening and disrespectfulness. But it was a good chance for me to debating in English."
Cons: "Again flights never left on time."
Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Arriving to my destination."
Cons: "The flight crew was rude, walking through the aisle sounding bossy, not courteous. I've flown united in the past and not had issues but on both united flights this trip, highly disappointed in the experience."
Pros: "very comfortable seating"
Pros: "Didn't have to check my roller bag. Arrived 30 minutes early and didn't have to wait for a gate. This may neve happen again."
Pros: "Ticket price"
Cons: "Long layover"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two hours"
Pros: "Very good."
Cons: "Though tickets were purchased many weeks in advance of flight, seating options were not offered online. Paid extra $35 per ticket, for side-by-side seats."
Pros: "The flight was to depart at 8:15 but due to delay only leaving at 3;30. Dissapointed as it took two agents to process a replacement flight (first agent offered a connection for a 1.5h flight only)."
Cons: "More attentive staff willing to help and at the very least, be emphatic."
Pros: "Very comfortable seats, movies & TV for streaming without having to pay $8. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The crew was unprofessional and Unprepared"
Pros: "The professionalism of the airline stewardess says that's what I like the most"
Cons: "I really can't say that I truly would call something I didn't like"
Pros: "Nothing I cuold think off"
Cons: "Too many delays, change of gates, maintenance check is too overwhelming. My Houston flight is unbelievable. We stayed were delayed for almost 5 hours . Wifi is not working"
Pros: "Same as before"
Cons: "Flight was changed on me last minute so I had to call United and see if I could negotiate a better flight time. Layover in LA went 3-4 hours longer than expected so I ended up getting in a lot later than expected, meaning I had less time to spend with my wife. I missed my flight on my way back - I think when everyone was boarding, I somehow misinterpreted the digital sign that said "Ontario" to mean that they were boarding for Ontario. I had to sleep in the airport that night because I missed the flight - most uncomfortable experience ever! I paid for United's lounge but they weren't open 24/7. Then they almost didn't let me in the next morning to the lounge because technically it was only for that 1 night, even though I had been at the airport all the same. Lesson learned - maybe I should just drive to SD rather than fly."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good."
Cons: "I was a little disappointed when I discovered the weight limit for carry one was so much more restrictive than other major carriers. The seats did not feel as comfortable on the Liftansa flight as the United flight."
Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"
Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."
Pros: "United entertainment options are fantastic. Using their app and on board wifi we have access to a very large collection of free movies and tv shows that kept me entertained"
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour waiting for a spot to take off. That is acceptable as the airport was dealing was lightning strikes. What was not acceptable was that fact that the airplane cabin during this time was a sauna. The air conditioning did not work and the entire airplane was really hot the crew said that the air was turned on all the way but that was having no effect. Beverages were served 5 mins before landing. How do we seat or drink anything in that time?."
Pros: "We received a free video service for the flight"
Cons: "First of all the flight was booked for a plane which was too large to land in Providence. So either way we were going to have a longer day and extra leg.....which I only paid for ONE plane change. After running to the gate because my first flight was late taking off, this flight was delayed due to engine issues. The agent had us standing in line for 1 1/2 hours while she tried to figure out what was going on. So instead of taking off at 5:40 pm, we took off at 9 pm and still had to catch a bus from Boston to Providence...HORRIBLE Flight = Long Day/Night"
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "Things were going well until the pilot had us get off the plane."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. United couldn't get me out until Sunday. So I rented a car and drove down instead."
