Great overall experience, thank you!
Pros: "Crew in flight was nice and professional Sit in 1st class was comfortable"
Cons: "For this flight everything was good"
Cons: "The controls for entertainment are on the arm rest so next passenger always hitting volume and channels"
Cons: "Late crew caused delays"
Pros: "Timeliness, professional staff and crew"
Cons: "Less cramped airplane: there is nothing wrong with the plane itself but every time I have travelled this route the plane has been completely full (this time it was even oversold) so a bigger plane would help"
Pros: "The flight was easy and quick. These small planes are actually pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Waiting for a gate in Chicago is never fun. Most people on the plane seemed to have tight connections, and I'm guessing most of us missed them. I only made mine because the next flight was delayed."
Pros: "It was okay. I slept mostly. The crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Even thought I got off a plane and direct to another I had to to go through security again. This meant I had no time to get any food or drink. I got to the new gate after boarding had started. Again, the flights were to close together."
Pros: "The crew was kind and smiling (not like the worst crew I’ve ever had Brussels Airlines)"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Rough landing in Washington, smell of kerosene in Sao Paulo flight, otherwise good."
Pros: "The connection time Mach very well。"
Cons: "I learned that 3 flight together long hours have no food been sever and we have time to get food from airport. Next time I will do better☺。"
Cons: "All of my fligts has been delayed and resceduled, so instead of 18 hours to go to hawaii, it took me 36h"
Pros: "Good communication from crew concerning updates and ETAs."
Cons: "Service was a bit brusque at times, but never unkind."
Cons: "I made a reservation for my whole family and selected seats four month ahead (we reserved 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D). One day before the departure, United informed me that one of my kid had to be moved to 11B a part from the rest of family due to a flight swap. When we started boarding, I noted someone else was sitting on my seat (1D) with his own boarding pass with 1D written. United crew politely asked if the gentlemen was willing to move to 6B, which his original seating in the system but he refused to do so. We' also personally explained to him that if he can yield the seat so that our family could sit together due to my wife's medical condition but he would not cooperate. I noted Those gentlemen on 1D and 1C are either buddies or coworkers. The crews were looking at each other without offering a solution. I ended up telling the crew that I could sit on 6B so that the plane can leave. The departure time was 20 min late u related my seating issue and de-icing took another 40 min. I am a Global Service member and I am very unhappy about the way the whole situation was created and handled by United."
Pros: "With the amount of bad press that United has, I did not expect much. However, flight was on time, everybody was polite, movie selection was excellent (several classics, box office hits, comedies etc, they even appropriately put "Die hard" under Winter Wonderland), food was good and salted caramel ice cream for dessert was a very nice touch."
Cons: "Tiny seats. My God, would it hurt to have TWO arm rests? I ended up sitting for 8h crooked to the right, just to avoid touching the guy beside me."
Cons: "They dont accepted the seats Im requested before, when you charger $ 15.99"
Pros: "The flight crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "The boarding time lasted an hour as the front desk staff at the gate insisted that I needed a visa travel document for my connection in China (multiple leg journey). What they failed to realize is that nobody needs a visa for China if they’re connecting in transit. It took a phone call and 3 staff members to sort things out. Not something that I want to deal with at 5:00 am. Moreover, due to the de icing, the flight was late and i just made it to my connecting flight in Newark. It was quite a hair-raising experience overall."
Cons: "Smoke on the plane crazy delay"
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "Snacks are never good. No TV."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and deplainig."
Cons: "There seemed to have been some “action” with 2 passengers - the crew members seemed frustrated and not very helpful. It left me feeeljng very confused & worrisome about the flight."
Cons: "The delays of airplanes making one almost miss a connecting flight and then arrive at destination super late inconveniencing everyone."
Pros: "Crew was fine, very friendly"
Cons: "Small sear back pockets, having to pay extra to take a carryon onboard!"
Pros: "Seats were very roomy and pilot did a great job!. Boarding went great!"
Cons: "We were stuck on tarmac but this was weather related. No gluten free snacks. Some crew was nice others less so."
Cons: "It was a long delay, which meant I missed my connection at O'Hare even though I had a 3 hour window."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late. The seat was so small, I could not open the tablet (folding tablet in armrest). I am 6" tall and medium built. That tablet can only fit a kid"
Cons: "Delayed delayed delayed"
Pros: "This was my first time flying and I had a very comfortable and pleasant experience"
Pros: "Ease and Comfort. Each terminal in our two-leg journey was modern, immaculate and simple to navigate. The flight and crew were outstanding; attentive and professional. Keep up the good work!"
Cons: "We just couldn't justify paying 16.00 so each of us could watch TV for two hours. We would have appreciated basic TV, in order for us to stay on top of the National/World news. We feel it is part of our best interest, as a country and world, to keep informed. Please allow for at least BBC to be viewed. For Free. Thank You."
Pros: "Lots of beverages offered. Boarding was fine"
Cons: "Lack of food choices and cramped seating"
Cons: "Didn't get in until 3am"
Cons: "My flight was delayed three hours. The staff behind the gate were extremely rude and unhelpful when I or others would ask details about the flight. They failed to provide us with anything other than "All we know is what you know," which is extremely false as they knew the whole time that the flight coming in was delayed, which delayed our flights. The crew onboard was extremely rude as well, telling me I could not have two cups of Coke when I asked for a second (I was thirsty, and we were waiting for 3 hours to board the flight). Also, the flight attendant kept knocking on the bathroom door while I was in there, and once I got out, told me I was limited to 5 minutes during flight (which I have never been told, and have been flying for years). Needless to say, I probably will never be flying United Airlines again."
Cons: "I was put on an Air Canada flight and sat on the tarmac for almost THREE hours in MTL. Finally took off and am stuck in Toronto overnight. Air Canada was very unhelpful. I have to sleep in the airport. No food vouchers. Sucks."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment..."
Pros: "Not much , cabin is small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Sat on tar mack for 2.5 hours"
Pros: "Boarding I guess was good. Flight was on time and arrived early in San Francisco."
Cons: "This was not a Luftansa flight, it was United. The crew was okay, but were not very good with putting any effort in for the passengers. The entertainment systems were clunky, slow and unresponsive. They looked old and/or just poorly designed or implemented. Could have just been cheap? Mine froze during the flight and never worked after that. The food was some of the worst I've ever had on a flight. Don't choose the vegetarian option unless you want an upset stomach. Seats were cramped and uncomfortable, but at least we got a clean blanket. They kept the plane cold for some unknown reason, so we needed it."
Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "- entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried.. United booked a hotel room for the night."
Cons: "Poor communication on gate change. Delay on flight boarding, and there were issues with engine. Stuck on the tarmac with no AC, they had us off-boarded since everyone was sweating. Reboarded after, no AC still until takeoff. Delayed more than two hours- this was last flight, and caused me to miss connection flight. Was supposed to arrive in final destination at 11pm that night- ended up getting there at 9:40AM next day."
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"
Pros: "Really short flight. Everything was up to par."
Pros: "I liked arriving home in a timely fashion."
Cons: "The first gate agent responding flatly, "I have NO idea." to a gate change question. OR the Mother Superior flight attendants that couldn't wait to point and nag about seat backs and tray tables. I wonder if either of the women noticed they were talking to someone who wasnt't an English speaker? United needs to fly Southwest to learn the right way to do things."
Pros: "Can't really remember if I liked anything."
Cons: "Unfriendly crew. Flight delayed by more then 2 hours. We were moved from gate to gate 2-3 times. Totally disorganized."
Pros: "Same as Co's to Houston"
Cons: "Delay caused us to miss last flight of day. We have been sleeping on floor of airport for 9 hours. Same thing happened in the beginning of the trip from dallas to chicago. Oh, it was our honeymoon!"
Cons: "Delays! Numerous delays! No assistance to help with changing missed connections or getting a hotel while stuck in Chicago."
Pros: "Never on Air Canada again. Food was miserable. They literally told me that they ran out of food (on the flight from Montreal to Casablanca). No kidding. They told us that the flight was full and no more food was available! When we asked for water, they did not bring water. I am not sure if they were out of water because the flight was full! That would be something! Bathrooms were not usable. Utterly dirty. My six-year old daughter refused to use the bathrooms. Water was flowing and the smell was horrible. They should clean that. I can go on but what is the point???"
Cons: "The list would be too long. So, what did I like is a better question in this case. Honestly, I am not even sure if I liked anything. I mean some people were nice, but why? Do I expect people to be rude? I mean, I need to like something extraordinary, something that others don't do. I can't remember anything remarkable. Just nothing."
Pros: "Eplenty of leg room. Very nice flight, no complaints,nothing I didn't like"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. When I called United I was in hold for an hour only to be told that my airline was not United but Air Canada. When I called air canada I was on hold for another 45 minutes. They rescheduled my flight for another day. I lost one day of my vacation."
Pros: "The crew were professional"
Cons: "The worst thing is that they schedule a CRJ-70 on this flight. This would be tolerable if the obvious alternative was a turboprop, as if Montreal were a small town, like Flin Flon. But it is not; it is a large and important city, and it stinks that the demand is so low that airlines must use small aircraft on these routes. Is it because Canadian taxes are so high on airlines that fares in turn must be high and not stimulate demand? I can't think of any other reason connecting cities this size would be on crappy little aircraft rather than on at least an A320/737 family aircraft. The problem is that there is not enough room in the overhead bins to fit rollaboards, even small ones like mine. So they have to "gate check" the bag, which does not always reappear at the gate at the destination. Less bad than the choice of aircraft was the fact that after we pushed back, they couldn't get an engine started, so they cancelled the flight and reaccommodated us on a later flight."
