Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, fine flight, very prompt"
Cons: "Was unable to board an earlier flight without paying $75. If there are seats it shouldn't be so difficult to be moved."

Flight was smooth, seats luxurious (comfort+ aisle and window seats with an empty center!). Arrival into ATL half an hour early."

Pros: "great staff . clean. current movies"

Cons: "The fact that I missed yet another connection because of a Delta issue. The difference is that this time there was not another connection for me to go to and I was told I would be provided a hotel in Atlanta which was not the case. I had to transfer to a flight 2 hrs away from my home only to still be on the floor of Atl airport because they are unable to appropriately de-ice planes."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "We landed at 2:14 p.m. but did not get our luggage until 3:38 p.m., with "priority" because we were traveling business class. Dozens of bags that were not "priority" preceded ours."
Pros: "The crew boarded us efficiently, and got us off the ground on time, but the boarding experience is not pleasant."
Cons: "The food selections are limited. The crew ran out of popular items in the economy cabin. The personal seat lighting on the B-767 never quite worked. I eventually gave up on it. The overhead bins were too small for many roller boards, which caused some passengers to be perplexed. Delta should offer some inducements to encourage passengers to gate check bags."
Cons: "Much older plane. Not as comfortable as some other planes I've been on."
Pros: "Staff on the plane was courteous although they skipped half of us for snacks & forgot some requests for water"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online. Was not able to select my seat online. I was told I would be able to do both of these things. Spent 30 minutes trying to find a number to someone at Delta to check in & select seat. I was in Australia & all Delta offices were closed because it was Sunday. Although I had an internationally calling plan, no calls to Delta US would go through. finally found someone through a back channel that would help me. We boarded an hour late, and staff would not answer any of our questions about what was going on or how late we would arrive (they sped up the fight so that we landed on time). Flight ran out of drinking WATER after the first service. Half of our section (Economy Plus) was skipped for snacks. An unruly child was allowed to scream for almost the entire flight & was running up & down the aisles. NOTHING was said to the parents by staff members. Was absolutely the worst behaving child with who I've had to fly."
Pros: "I liked that we finally arrived."
Cons: "I didn't like the lack of communication on Delta's behalf by their employees throughout our plane delay process. We were very delayed, and would be getting alerts on our phones before anyone told us what was going on. The forced us to change planes and didn't explain what the plan was or how we why we were transitioning. A lot of passengers had to ask each other what was going on, due to this lack of direction."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The plane was not very full and I was selected to move be from row 30 to row 16. All seats in that row were empty. That was very nice."
Pros: "Very Comfy plane."
Cons: "No food or beverage service"
Pros: "Exit row seat with no seat in front. Was able to stretch legs."
Cons: "No space."
Cons: "Almost everything"
"I’m glad this flight had a snack service as this flight generally only has non-alcoholic beverage service. The Canadair regional 200 jet is one of the worst aircraft experiences you can ride, but it’s better than flying the Dash 8."
Pros: "the crew was great! boarding was a breeze - not a single flaw!"
Cons: "Honestly, one of the best flight experiences ever."
Pros: "Arrived in Tampa informed about all kinds of delays and that I would not be able to make the connection from New York to Iceland. Very hard to get anywhere with the one 800 number they gave me up getting some help with that lady at the service desk, she was finally able to almost promise me trip with another airline a day which was that was yesterday"
Cons: "Certainly did not like their phone help, talk to numerous people first of all bad connection second of all very hard to understand. I got hung up on couple of times was on hold for 25 minutes one time 20 minutes another lady called promised to call me back and that was yesterday at five I still have not called her and today it’s 1030. Super poor customer service"
Pros: "United Airlines kept changing our flights and seating assignments even though we paid for 2 round trip tickets 4 months in advance. The ticket agents at the gate were very helpful in making sure my companion and I could get seats together."
Cons: "Our luggage got left behind in Chicago. The luggage finally arrived at our destination 5 hours after we did."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant."

Pros: "Nothing I never took this flight"
Cons: "Hopefully no one scammed my name or banking info I was not on this flight"
Cons: "Ground crew and in Jamaica was horrible. They asked me if I have flew United before when I asked her a question."
Cons: "Our flight was changed 6 times and then cancelled- we had to sleep in the airport"
Pros: "Until they can make the chair recline backwards a little more (which, space issues may never allow for and I acknowledge this), and give food a bit more substantial then it won’t be 5 stars. However, exceptional stewartess and captains with humor made this 14 hour flight bearable."
Pros: "Not a whole lot, the flight and comfort were fine. The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "There was NO entertainment on board unless you paid $7.99, including watching the progress of the flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica to Newark."

Pros: "Made up all delays in the air"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Free TV because of the 3 hour delay."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay and the poor communication about it."
Cons: "I don’t like that you have to purchase WiFi and movies. My first flight was with JetBlue and they provide those things for free. I do not understand why United doesn’t do the same. Overall I was disappointed for the amount of money I spent on the flight and being told I’d have to purchase movies and WiFi"
Pros: "AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS."
Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."

Pros: "On time. Tasty eats. Good crew"
Cons: "Sound in the movies is sub-par"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Great landing."
Cons: "I'm still here never got out"
Cons: "Will NEVER fly United again. Going home to advise EVERYONE I know not to fly United. They straight suck. Starving people on long flights with hot food for a third of the plane?!?!?! Then telling me I'm wrong for expecting a meal on an almost 7 hour flight?!?!?! &, even better, the reason my son & I starved all morning, day , & evening because EVERY single flight (all 3) were late, one so much so that we almost missed the connecting flight. Wow, is all I can say. After I still have United a chance after assaulting that poor man. Beyond highly disappointed."
Cons: "The air hostess mentioned a workaround/ compensation, which was not provided."
Pros: "great crew great flight and in flight service."
Pros: "I like everything!!everyone was so nice that it makes you feel so welcome and that you're like in home!!!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by a hour and a half. They originally advised us that the delay was due to cleaning the inside of the airplane for the next passengers then they said they were fueling the plane then finally admitted there were maintenance issues with the plane. The delay cause most people to miss there connecting flights and have to stay the night since it being late evening. Inconvenience to customer"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time and there was absolutely no delay. As soon as we boarded we were on our way..I was such a pleasant flight with very little turbulence."
Pros: "Seating felt like cheap european carriers. Limited seat pockets as they try to improve legroom. Didnt let seats come back too far. so design of the cheap seating actually worked as i was not pinned in seat when jerk in frong of me put seat back."
Cons: "Aisle Narrow. People at checkin were grumpy...telling us to get back ...."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"
Cons: "Less than friendly staff at the desk. The gate was changed on us and again no United app updates or texts until much later."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Pilot kept the passengers informed regarding weather issues in the flight path."
Cons: "Had to rebook flight due to prior delay. Not so friendly staff at the desk."
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time. We got some food and a selection of free drinks. I could choose the movies I would like to watch. There was plenty of space for hand luggage."
Cons: "I could not select my seat online, so I was assigned the worst seat. I was all the way in the back and in the middle. I could not lean back at all. The headrest was too high. I felt extremely uncomfortable the entire time. My entire neck and back hurt by the time we made it to our destination. This aircraft should NOT be used for flights that last more than 5-6h. In addition, since I was all the way in the back, I didn't have food options - I was given whatever nobody else (that got food before me) wanted. If I had known this, I would have brought food with me. And again, all this could have been avoided if only I could have selected my seat online."
Pros: "In air television .. Seats were comfortable. Arrived earlier than expected"
Cons: "Enjoyed the entire flight."

Pros: "The flight arrived 20 mins early."
Cons: "Had to wait too long to pick up luggage at baggage claim."
Pros: "Free wifi, one free snack and drink, overall one personal item and one free carry on bag."
Cons: "Wifi wasn't excellent and the crew should tell the passengers that they give out one free snack and drink."
Cons: "Did not offer much food or entertainment options that were free. Flight was also delayed a hour and 45 mins."
Pros: "The flight was good the pilots made up the delayed time and the flight was fairly smooth"
Cons: "Paying for checked baggage It's impossible to go on vacation with only a carry on bag"
Pros: "Everything went on schedule and our bulkhead seats were great. Flight was smooth and got in early."
Cons: "The person giving the announcements spoke so quickly and in a monotone way that it was difficult to understand her."
Cons: "boarding needs to be more organized.... the group numbers was a no go. food choices sucked"
Pros: "The pilots and flight attendants were excellence..."
Cons: "The boarding procedures are too long and unorganized."
