Pros: "That we finally arrived."
Cons: "That we didn't arrive even remotely close to when we were supposed to."

Pros: "Are usually fly international, and I really enjoy it. Flying domestic inside the US is bad because you never know when you will get flight delays, like we got. It wasn’t the fault of Delta, but it sucked."
Cons: "Small seeds, no food, the flight delay"

Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"

Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, especially when checking in"

Cons: "It was a 1.5 hour late leaving San Diego (6am flight), one of three bathrooms out, no coffee or tea (wtf?), we circled Atlanta for an hour, ran out of gas, landed in Pensacola, no information, missed the flight to DC ... And it's not even noon"

Cons: "Flight was late to arrive and late to depart. Not many passengers but no service."

Pros: "Great crew on board!"

Pros: "Courteous staff."

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "On time boarding in Seattle."

Pros: "More entertainment options were added. Thank you"
Cons: "It didn't fly fast enough. Jk. Not much to say"

Pros: "Flight attrndants on delta are mostly ok-- but there are several with bad attitudes who cannot communicate They will just point at things and mumble incoherently with incomplete sentences They will not turn there hips when walking down the aisle to avoid hitting people & they"
Cons: "Flight attendants are miserable"

Pros: "What is the issue?"

Cons: "They delayed the takeoff because of catering, really over a half hour because you wanted to sell more sandwiches. So you make us late and the poor people who had connecting flight, it just does not make sense."

Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"

Pros: "Nothing I can think of right away"
Cons: "Late arrival and late departure. Poor service in having my luggage be connected to my flight. Was under the impression that they would do that after I had called the day prior and once I got to airport they didn't do so"

Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"

Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."

Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Arrived 15 mins late and then taxied for another 5-10 mins."

Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Woot! For food on the SAN to JFK flight!"
Cons: "I hate that I booked and checked in early, but still had my seat assignment changed twice before boarding, and when I got to my seat, it was in front of the exit row, and my seat wouldn't recline. It was terribly uncomfortable"

Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."

Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Cons: "Cant get used to cookies and drink service on long haul flight. Do not care for salable food choices so packed a sandwich."

Cons: "Extreme delays"

Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"

Pros: "Very easy flight & process"

Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Liked the entertainment option. I was able to watch most of a movie on the first flight, then pick up the end on the second. B737-900 ER is a nice plane"
Cons: "Boarding sequence seems inefficient"

Cons: "The plane temperature was too hot from boarding to landing"

Pros: "The crew, and boarding quickly"
Cons: "The flight was packed. It was hot as we boarded. The seat was tight and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "No leg room, tight squeeze, charge for checked bags, no room for carryon luggage, bin compartments are too small"

Pros: "What wasn't there to like it was truly amazing. I had a great time."

Cons: "My flight was canceled because of the hurricane in Houston which was completely understandable. Trying to rebook a flight was one of the worst experiences I've had on the phone. Over 2 hours on hold only for United to tell me to call back inside 24 hours of my requested departure (which was about 12 hours outside of the time I called). Bad customer service all around, both Kayak and United."

Cons: "They put my luggage on a flight 3 hours later. I bought this flight so I can get to the wedding rehearsal on time. All my fiancés and my clothes are in that luggage. So now we are late to the wedding rehearsal that my fiance is the maid of honor for and we still have to head to the hotel to check in and get ready. It's just unacceptable."

Pros: "They gave us free tv since we had to wait so long and they made us wait for an hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "We had a connecting flight from San Francisco that we missed due to their delays. We still don't know why it was delayed. They didnt give a clear or concise reason for the delays. Our flight landed a few minutes before our connecting flight departed and instead of holding the plane like they have done in other reviews I've read they actually took off early. We were automatically given tickets to the next flight out to our final destination (which was 6 hours later.) This was sucky but we didn't have control over it so we dealt with it. However when we went to customer service to print our new tickets we were "greeted" with two apathetic employees. The first one we didn't actually get to interact with because after waiting in line for 10 minutes when it was finally our turn he held his hand up to stop us from walking up to the counter and just left. No explanation just headed out. So we headed over to the "premier" line for a procedure that should literally take 3 minutes to interact with the next employee who made it somehow our fault that we were mildly upset with the situation. My father always told me United "sucks" we gave them a chance but we should have heeded his fatherly advice. Oh and a bonus my traveling partner has a broken pelvis so sitting around for hours on end was just salt to the wound."

Pros: "I was able to board on time. Service in-flight was ok."
Cons: "I wasn't able to check-in at the self-serve kiosk. Customer service took a long time and helped two people that got in the inexistent line after me first. During the flight my seat was broken, wouldn't recline. I don't like I can't turn off the screen if I want to, rather I have to put up with that undesired content someone else manages."

Pros: "Easy on ! Organized"

Cons: "Crew was rude and seemed to be in a constant rush big lack of customer service"

Pros: "i eventually got to SF"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed and they wouldn't tell us why. There happened to be a line forming at the counter and when i asked an employee why people were lining up, all that i got in reply was "because the flights delayed". Thanks...i had no idea"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid $50 extra for a flight to leave at 5 instead of 8 and they ended up so late that the cheaper flight left before we did. Overbooked and packed to the point of immobility."

Pros: "Cancelled the first flight I was on. Then the second flight out of SAN to SFO was delayed so we sat on the plane for an hour. Of course i was fine but the way United treated people who were going to miss their connections was nothing but rude. I've had it with them!"
Cons: "I wish airlines that treat you like a human like Virgin, Alaska.."

Pros: "Friendly, cheerful cabin crew."
Cons: "If I wanted to check my bag I wouldn't have dragged it through the airport. Boarding was a mess. Too many people put both their personal item and their bag up top. The whole boarding process stopped when people with bags there was no space for ran into people trying to get to the back of the plane. It was stuck still for a good five minutes while we figured out how to un-jam the space. I blame airline policies that discourage checking a bag, at any weight. I really dislike gate checking a bag."

Pros: "The staff were very freindly"
Cons: "They had a setup if you wanted to watch a movie you had to log onto your computer or other device, but you had to down load the United airlines app, but my IPad would not connect to download."

Pros: "The flight was 50% shorter than advertised."
Cons: "Terminal 8 was a very very long walk to Terminal B."

Cons: "From flight attendants who shouted, rather than help sort out seat assignments, to repeatedly announcing the luggage was on the empty, stopped carousel 4 when it was really over on 2, the service on the red eye was irritating from start to finish."

Cons: "Didn't happen"

Pros: "The crew and flight was excellent. Two short flights to get to my destination."
Cons: "Their new fare for budget flights processing is outrageous. I was advised booking the flight carrying size only undervfront seat storage. Then got an email explaining how this works. Then tried to checkin online 24 hours prior and you can't since you are not checking baggage. Got to airport to find that can't checkin except at counter as you need a UAL employee to scan their I'd during process to get boarding pass. Waited for employee and then she was rude about it. Again reminded me I can't bring anything else onboard or will cost me extra at gate. If UAL wants to offer this they need to be more customer friendly. I was far from impressed for the inconvenience I experienced being s longtime UAL Frequent Flier."

Cons: "Seat area had a good deal of trash around it and in the seat back pocket"

Pros: "The crew was all very polite, attentive and helpful."

Pros: "Your reminders!"

Pros: "San Diego airport had a curfew of 11:30. The flight was delayed 30 minutes and the crew did a great job of boarding with a purpose to expedite the process and have us ready to take off by curfew."
Cons: "The flight was 30 minutes late in a city with a curfew so we ran the chance of not being able to take off that night."

Pros: "Arrived to destination 30min early! Boarded and took off exactlymon time!"
Cons: "Nothing, everything went perfectly smooth"

Pros: "The employees."

Pros: "Nice service"

Pros: "Leg room was good and on time."
Cons: "For a 51/2 hr flight they only offered a beverage twice in a these litTle 4 is cups!! The united app was not working and the internet was sporadic which lent to a long long flight with no movies. Overall not impressed."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant & helping. There was a gentlemen I sat beside with a service dog the size of a horse! He (diesel) was a gentle giant. The crew were dog lovers so they took care of diesel like he was a rock star!"
Cons: "No entertainment...you had to watch it on your phone or tablet."

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No internet service. And you have to pay for all extra emenities."

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "the rest"

Pros: "Got in early, but unfortunately no gate to unload passengers for almost 20 mins"
Cons: "Stewardess told me I had to use overhead bin for my personal item. Personal item met requirements with ease. Did not listen to this woman's command."

Pros: "Staff"

Pros: "they gave me a row with all three seats open so I could sleep on the way home on a red eye. Absolutely excellent crew."

Pros: "Crew members were nice"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and crammed , my seat wouldn't go back and the headphone jack was broken so I couldn't enjoy movies"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Almost missed connection. Crew tried to besupportive best she could."

Pros: "The wi-fi entertainment was good"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew. Broken seat back, would not recline. Made crew aware and was basically told to deal with it. Delayed twice on my return lay over. Not a good experience overall."

Pros: "Everything was quick and convenient! No hassles! Smooth sailing"

Pros: "Every thing the best company ever"
Cons: "Just make the price $10 more dollars per ticket and give free wifi. Thanks"

Pros: "Despite delays, united employees went out of their way to make sure I made my connection and got to my destination on time."
Cons: "Many delays in and out if lax due to construction. All four of my flights were delayed. The initial and the connection, both coming and going"

Cons: "Missed connection due to delay rebooking took me out of way from LA to Denver and the to Seattle. Arrived 8 hrs after expected/anticipated arrival."

Pros: "The fact i got to my destination"
Cons: "No entertainment system or wifi available"

Cons: "On my flight back during taking off, I was throwing a trash away into a little bag that is also designed for vomiting. When I pushed a trash into the bag, I felt that it was already wet. Somebody vomited into it at the previous flight and placed it back to the seat's packet. I am not telling that it was the cleaning crew's mistake because it looked like unused until I pushed my hand into it, but it was still a very unpleasant experience and could be also a health hazard."

Cons: "Leg room not sufficient"

Pros: "The plane seats were comfortable and I liked the entertainment offered."
Cons: "Crying babies."

Pros: "Friendly staff, and an informative pilot."

Pros: "Was very difficult time getting home on my schedule time. First they said they had no seating, then after calling mother explaining then had go back up she said she had seat. Worst flight I ever had with all these problems."

Pros: "On time boarding"
