My husband and I are both enrolled in the AA frequent flyer program and had at least 6 people cut in front of us while on-line. When we finally approached the AA representative, Dayana Gómez, She was rude and not helpful. Our seats on the UIO-Dallas flight did not even recline. We sat completely upright for the duration of the 6 hour overnight night flight into Dallas."

Pros: "Better staff"
Cons: "Still terrible"

Cons: "They had no room for my carry on, I had to place it under my seat making my legs very comfortable."

Pros: "The flight attendants were smiling & seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs. Quick flight, on time, for a good value."
Cons: "The United app does not support my phone, so no entertainment for me. It was a short flight & I use audio books, so no big deal. I imagine other Samsung owners are less than happy. Is there a glich in the link? Does it send android users to Mac platforms?"

Pros: "Efficient crew, knew their business, executed their functions well."
Cons: "Small planes are inherently less comfortable, but that just goes with the package. Nothing you can do about it."

Pros: "United got me from Dulles t o Zurich. The boarding, flight, and food was as expected."
Cons: "Not being able to select my seat in advance of the day before the flight is not ideal."

Pros: "The plane had a nose problem so we had to wait for maintenance when we are a seated. Only took about 15 minutes for the okay and paperwork. That was amazing."
Cons: "Passengers bringing their luggage on the plane when I had to pay $25.00 to check my bag. That is backwards. It also slows down on and off time."

Pros: "It was a United flight and the whole experience was. Positive"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "United flew late and we had to RUN to new gate for connecting flight. Old small jet. No phones could be on. Odd folks drug their dog on board and were asked to put it on the floor. ... oh no! !!!!"

Cons: "In attentive attendants. Limited movie options."

Pros: "Got an earlier flight direct to Boston."

Cons: "Severe lack of legroom. In my 45 years of flying I have never seen such outrageous lack of space. Callous attitude when I approached management about it afterwards. Because of this I will not fly United again ."

Cons: "We had to go from DC to ORD then back to GEG. It was out of the way and took much longer than expected. Other than that all went well."

Pros: "I've always been a United flyer since I was a child. When I grew up I flew Pan Am and United all over the world."
Cons: "These new fares would work fine for me if it wasn't such a drama trying to find someone to issue me a boarding pass. I think I'll finally make the move over to Virgin/ Alaska. I always just travel with a backpack but I almost missed my flight since I couldn't find someone to wave their ID at the kiosk to get a boarding pass. Plus, what have you ordered 737's without eco-plus. Where did the entertainment systems go?"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst experience I've ever had.. I've flown over 7 times with other carriers and my very first United Airlines experience was one to forget.. all around experience was a very SOLID F on the grading scale."

Pros: "It was what I expected, a long flight in economy. Nothing special -nothing terrible. Check in went smoothly."
Cons: "One restroom was inoperative, so there were long waits to use the restroom. For long flights, it would be nice if all restrooms were available."

Cons: "Delays. Miscommunication."

Cons: "The temperature on the plane was awful! It was absolutely too warm and uncomfortable. On a full flight. Arrived early again, had to sit on the plane to wait for the ground crew and then had to wait over an hour for checked luggage. Again ridiculous."

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In a decade of travel I've had three lost bags. Two of which were Air Canada. So I'm going to avoid them."

Pros: "The plane landed safely"
Cons: "The whole culture around United is aggressively unfriendly, a fitting description would be "the dark skies of united" it seems like their employees (crew,ticket agents, gate crew etc) are miserable and grudgingly go through their paces"

Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"

Cons: "Wifi never worked, mentioned several times to crew and didn't have decency to check or follow up. Attendants were crabby at best and were acting like they were doing passengers a favor by even. Wing there. Very rude and unprofessional to every question. Captain came out to go to bathroom twice and chatted up remaining flight attendant for several minutes- making it so passengers couldn't approach restrooms."

Pros: "Crew was nice, did their best to help."
Cons: "14 hours late"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi. No entertainment. No leg room."

Pros: "On time, crew was friendly"

Pros: "Great crew. We happened to be able to land 30 mins early. Never had that happen before!"
Cons: "Transfer from my international flight caused me to go through security again...."

Cons: "HUGE DELAY. MISSED CONNECTION. CONSTANT UNCERTAINTY"

Pros: "I traveled on a weekend during which I experienced numerous flight cancellations and was stuck for a couple of days on two separate nights. I flew United and American that weekend. United Airlines staff was the most empathic and apologetic to.me, even though they had no control over the weather. I didn't expect any accommodations for all of the changes...just a little understanding...and that's what they gave to me. I did let AA know how disappointed I was in them just for their lack of compassion. Thanks"

Cons: "Check in reservation clerk really hassled me when checking in when she saw the reservation under my name was spelled wrong. She acted as if I was NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO BOARD!! I did not make the error! They had my Date of birth, my service dog traveling with me, and still were acting like they weren't going to check me in! Extremely stressful!!"

Pros: "Never took it"
Cons: "Never took this flight"

Pros: "There was a lot of space and a quick departure."
Cons: "When we got to LA event though we were early we had to wait. I know its not the airlines fault but it sucked."

Pros: "Texted notifications of the many delays and changed gates until it finally left"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues AND a delayed crew"

Cons: "PA system delayed the flight to cancellation. Waited all day until they said we should consider switching our flights. Missed our connector. Had to red eye in to an entirely different location and drive straight to work because the mess. Awful."

Pros: "Timely...and pilots updates of flight time"
Cons: "3 stewardess slow service"

Pros: "Flight was fast. Got there early"
Cons: "Didn't know that you needed the united app for in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "Arriving."

Pros: "The flight attendant, Elizabeth, was great! She was friendly and helpful. She made our flight more enjoyable."
Cons: "The ranch snack mix was kinda spicy and had a couple of weird things in with the pretzels. I would've liked it better if it was just regular pretzels. In fact, both my boyfriend and I only ate the pretzels part of it, because we didn't like the other parts."

Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable"

Pros: "some airline don't have entertainment like tv and wifi is very poor"

Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."

Cons: "No room in the seating, nor in the overhead."

Cons: "There was no entertainment, no more food left when they got to my seat and the seats were really small"

Pros: "The space in between the row in front was above average. The extra space is appreciated. Gate agents were kind and helpful during the boarding process."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1 hour after landing. I know that wasn't the crews fault. But they could have given more frequent updates and at least told us what gate we were at so we could have a better idea when trying to frantically make our connections. Also the entertainment was pricey for a 5 hour flight that I paid good money for. I thinK basic movies should just be included in the fees"
