Cons: "We could have had our non-stop flight that we booked. Air temp in cabin was cold and breezy"
Pros: "Updated plane. Seats were nice. Flight landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The new controls built into the armrests are HORRIBLE! You accidentally hit a button constantly because ITS AN ARM REST! Get the engineers building something to cover it up. We landed early and I was so excited to get a jump home. I then waited for 35 mins for my bags to appear on the conveyor AFTER walking all the way to the baggage claim from the gate. I arrived home later than I expected.....This is not the first time that the United baggage was so slow. This needs to be an improvement area."
Pros: "Everything fine"

Cons: "flight was late close to 4 hrs"
Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Pros: "I sat next to two of the flight attendants prior to our departure. When they got up to board, their negative comments about getting on the plane made me think Wow, why are you doing this job, if you don't really want to go. The two attendants at the check in, they need some training."

After spending a fair amount of time on the phone with customer service I was able to get me on a Flight to Minneapolis that did not arrive till 1:30am then had to take a rental car to drive 3.5 hours to make it to my destination. I was not compensated for any of this. My return flight from Fargo to St. Louis was also Delayed. Both from Fargo and from Chicago. I have never experienced such poor scheduling from an airline or as many delays or cancelled flights in just a few day period."
Cons: "This was 11PM flight from LAX to SFO which takes about an hour and a half. We sat on the tarmac for nearly two hours with little feedback from the crew and screaming kids (I too wanted to scream). When I requested information, I was told that they had to remove a passenger and get gas. It sounded like a cruel joke. Unprofessional, disrespectful and all around terrible experience."

Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."

Pros: "OK until we boarded."
Cons: "My flight out of Chicago was cancelled. I hate when they lie to you that it was weather related. At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Flight was as smooth as glass; great on time for departure and arrival."
Cons: "Did not give senior citizens who needed it any extra time to board; only disabled people. Free snack portion was extra stingy. Other airlines we fly moffer more than one tiny package! One of our party had a seat (aisle) that he could not move in once seated. Free entertainment was very stingy! Other airlines offer much more free entertainment in the way of TV."
Cons: "I never made it on the flight due to weather conditions they couldn't even hold the flight, and then when I have to get my own accommodations had to pay for my own hotel that is not cool"
Pros: "Fine. Wish my earlier one wasn't so delayed."
Pros: "I enjoyed the roomier seat."
Cons: "It would be nice to have one of your complimentary snacks gluten-free."
Pros: "I had an empty row."
Cons: "Waiting for boarding an extra 30mins. Waiting for departure an extra 30mins. All after having my gates switched, and walking accros the concourse just to get to it."
Cons: "The side that I had was very hot and it took a while before it cooled down after flight attendant was notified from everyone on that side"
Cons: "no entertainment united didn't let me connect flight and it is not our fault. but they didn't even pay for the hotel and check in luggage fee that i didn't have to pay if i could connect flight from Tokyo on the same day."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Entertainment systems did not function during the trip-a HUGE disappointment when the cost of the flight was over $1100 per person."
Pros: "Staff was professional and friendly flight was smooth and nice."
Pros: "Loved the Great Falls airport!! Who goes to an airport that has leather couches that you can lay down on and take a quick nap!! Beautiful airport!!"
Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"
Pros: "Easy enough"
Cons: "should have happened yesterday."
Pros: "United airlines seems no better or worse than most major airlines today."
Cons: "I am fed up with the herding mentality by most airlines. Since when did purchasing an economy seat mean you are not entitled to at least a modicum of comfort on a flight. The legroom provided now is no where near enough for any normal size human. Additionally it's still annoying to pay $25.00 for a single checked bag. I tried United after many years but will be returning to Southwest Airlines - in the long run it's less expensive. I realize nothing will change based on my opinion, regardless, it is more comfortable and dignified to take a Greyhound bus than to fly a major airline these days."
Pros: "This flight was smooth, the crew was very nice and very efficient, and overall the flight was on-time (actually it was early landing). I was very happy and would take a flight with this crew any day."
Cons: "We boarded late because of maintenance check. After we boarded, we were told still doing maintence check."
