Pros: "..."
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "Nothing very bad experience, the staff very nasty !!"
Cons: "My flight had a big the delay, and they didn't really help us with flight connection they we us hartzell time . Also one is my suitcase did come on time . The seat were very bad for economic class . I WON'T EVER FLIGHT FROM UNITED AIRLINES!!! I ALWAYS TRAVEL THIS MY FRIST TIME USING THIS AIRLINE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."
Pros: "It was a stressful experience, arriving late for ur connection flight and find out u cant get to ur destination. I would say that they did compliment us with a very nice hotel so i apologize for the bad review i understand u cant do anything about the weather but was amazed with the hotel"
Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "United staff were ready in Panamá to handle the missed connections, with onward booking already handled and hotel vouchers ready for distribution upon deplaning."
Cons: "Late boarding and long wait on runway to be able to take off, thus ensuring connection in Panamá would be missed. Given that one runway was closed due to wind, this is something outside the control of United. Nevertheless, allowing a connecting flight with only 30 minutes between flights would seem to be overly risky, thus any delay upon departure will ensure a missed connection."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Amazes me how the airlines can shrink legroom. I'm 6'5" & had an economy middle row middle seat. Needsless to say, I was stuck actually & figuratively since it was a full flight."
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy, repeated same commercials"
Cons: "Plane was late and missed connection."
Cons: "Terrible experience. Will avoid united at all costs. We arrived with enough time and called ahead. They said to run and the plane would still be there however at the kiosk, the personell was very unhelpful. They made us miss our flight, fly out the next day and didn't now help change our return flight to the next day. I called united, the booking agency and the other airline without getting any changes."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Pros: "The crew was super attentive and cordial."
Cons: "United Airlines has really deteriorated. Paid entertainment for an international flight is really nickle-and-diming it, especially since it was direct tv which is only available over the continental US!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight"
Cons: "Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English."
Cons: "I left New Jersey during snow storm. Flights had been cancelled on the previous days but our flight was not. It did not leave on time, had to switch planes before we actually took off. My luggage was lost. I did not make my connecting flight. Had sty over in Panama. Got to my destination a day late without my carry on ( checked at the gate...lost). Still have not located my other 2 bags. Very stressful expirence. Will not fly united again. Staff at my lay over was poorly trained at handling the situation and my luggage issue is taking a very long time to correct."
Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst airline I’ve taken in a while .. you can tel they want is $$. From charging to change seats. To have VERY LITTLE leg room (and I’m 5’2”). Charging for entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable. Crew seemed embarrassed. The crew was fine and did their job."
Cons: "bad web site lost luggage stolen items from luggage no option to wrap my luggage in plastic unfriendly staff late flight and take off"
Cons: "A 5+hr flight and a bag of pretzels for a snack? Cheap! Unfriendly staff at Panama airport"
Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."
Pros: "Directv on board"
Cons: "No food. Delayed. Bad crew"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, terrible attention"
Pros: "See comments from the first flight"
Cons: "See comments from the first flight"
Pros: "First rate service"
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "No food, no great entertainment,very tight space"
Cons: "I did not like that there was no food. Long flights are supposed to give some, at least a small sandwich."
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Cons: "El peor servicio que he recibido"
Cons: "Coffee was not available, couldn't get the machine to work. I thought the stewardess could of at least offered and extra bag of snacks."
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Pros: "It was indeed good experience."
Pros: "Airline personel were all very pleasant and eager to help, just not very effective"
Cons: "paid entertainment"
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "on a 5,5 hour flight only drinks and no food, NOT OKEY - entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."
Pros: "I liked the staff and comfort the most"
Cons: "I mean is not anybodys fault but its lame that now everything has to be paid, from entertainment to food and all of that!"
Pros: "Soso"
Cons: "Was good"
Pros: "The food the free alcoholic drinks it was a short flight from Panama city to Quito but they gave you all the free drinks you wanted and a nice meal in like an hr flight, stewardesses were great as well top customer service, live copa, no entertainment but that's OK on a short flight"
Cons: "nothing, likes everything quick flight drinks pretty stewardesses, all my airline dreams fulfilled"
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."
Cons: "Cancellation policy is just abusive !!"
Pros: "Wonderful cabin crew"
Cons: "No entertainment unless you downloaded an app in advance, and then, for people who had, only over USA, and after you pay for united wifi. That's poor"
Cons: "The pilots were late which cost us our departure so that we ran into restrictions based on weather. Thus we missed our connection in Panama City. United should ensure pilots are on time."
Pros: "Worst flight ever. I wont bother letting you know how you ruined my day. Youre turning air travel a joke. The only thing mastered by you is security procedures. In the name of 20+ party we were, united is the worst ever and next time we will pay extra for a decent airline."
