Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and the seats were comfortable, which was my reason for upgrading to first class, I am tall with long legs, therefore leg room is a MUST for me...but the reurn flight from Memphis to Houston was HORRIBLE!!..PACKED FULL, NO leg room, NO A/C-seriously-Hot air and body odor!"
Cons: "The plane had no A/C!..it just circulated hot air mixed with stale body odor from previous flight!..no leg room and the flight was 100% full..CanadaAir regional jet..and the seats were all narrow, and we were in 1A, !B...totally disappointed!"

Pros: "Crew was great. The landing in Memphis was exceptionally smooth."

Cons: "Shrinking the knee room is a mistake"

Pros: "Airbus 380 was comfortable and new which made for a decent flight."
Cons: "Lufthansa and United computer systems don't talk to one another. We had a leg of our journey from United. We could not purchase seats on the Lufthansa flights and could not even check in; therefore we ended up with seats that were not comfortable for us. Lufthansa messed up on our meals despite it being 'confirmed' (we checked with the service desk in Frankfurt). The in flight movies were ok; the touch screens are not sensitive enough and take lots of processing time."

Pros: "On time & courteous. & On board service was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Scheduled to arrive in Honolulu @ 7p on 10/7 but won’t arrive until 10/6 @ 11:26a. My only daughter re-enlisted in the military and I was due to attend the ceremony but because of United Airlines that didn’t happen. So disappointed as she is also. Overall such a horrible experience!"

Pros: "Pilots had great skill and provided a very comfortable flight despite bad weather. Exceptionally smooth take off. The newer planes being introduced are very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize how amazing the United Airlines app was. Shows all kinds of cool info on your flight and free media. I am now shocked st how ignorant people are to write complaints regarding delays due to weather. It's for your safety. Appreciate technology and respect Mother Nature fools."

Cons: "Cabin was freezing and flight attendant told us there was no way to control the heating the cooling to a comfortable temperature. It will continue to be too hot or too cold."

Pros: "Left on time."

Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "I sat in section 4 in economy coach. The ticketing agents REQUIRED everyone in sections 4 and 5 in the back to check our bags, they gave us no choice! We then boarded the airplane to find over half of all the overhead bins empty! This is completely unacceptable to be separated from my carry-on luggage for no reason! There would have been plenty of room for our baggage! One more reason to never fly United again!"

Pros: "Courteous perdonality"

Cons: "The noisy children"

Pros: "I have food a low score as there basically was none. I was offered a glass of water. I paid $74 for an emergency exit seat, and while it gave extra legroom, the seat hardly reclined at all."
Cons: "Lack of food choices, but perhaps not atypical for coach."

Pros: "We were diverted to Austin due to weather. We had to refuel and we were stuck on the Tarmac for over an hour. While all of this was miserable, the Crew stayed active answering questions. The Captain gave several updates and walked the aisle. They even let people off the plane who were trying to get to Austin. For a bad situation this crew made it so much better!"

By the time we got to our destination we almost didn't get a rental car. There was some turbulence on the flight, which is expected.
