my seat got changed twice after checking on then boarding it had been given to a family so by the time they found a seat for me no overhead storage left. i ended up losing my Sony Headphones case because i could even access underthe seat in front of my when deplaning.

Seats in economy were VERY tight for such a long flight. Food was pretty good, flight attendants were fine, it was just pretty uncomfortable.

All good, useful to have the united app from check in to boarding

Delayed for maintenance issue?? Should have been addressed before boarding. Put my bag on an earlier flight, but didn’t ask if I wanted to change to an earlier flight. Arrived to find my bag locked up and no agent to be found when I landed.

Flight crew and pilots did great. Flight way delayed due to a part needing replacement. Based on what the pilot indicated- the maintenance crew could’ve resolved this more efficiently than replacing whole part- and taken less time

temperature, temperature, temperature. it was hot as balls and everyone around me was complaining and constantly adjusting their vents

Poor customer service & placement in seating row with less leg room than we paid for.

The staff was phenomenal. I can’t think of anything that could be better. Will be flying with UA again

Flight was delayed, which put a great stress on us, about potentially disrupting our two subsequent overseas flights. Had to run through the airport, but we made it. Comfort of the seat was non-existent.

I had very little time to change planes originally in Denver after my flight from Omaha. I had an hour and a half layover in Denver originally and my flight leaving Omaha was delayed an hour because they had to change a tire, which I can understand. When I reached Denver my other flight was late, fortunately, but I still had only 10 minutes to run about a mile through the airport to get to my flight. Again, fortunately, I am a healthy 71-year-old and was able to accomplish this feat. However, the stress was more than necessary to bear.

A much better flight than our previous. The flight attendant took care of us and regularly checked in to see if we needed anything. Brought us drinks prior to the departure and then a couple more times. Totally makes the difference in how you travel when the crew is checking on their passengers. Great job on this leg of our trip.

The person next to me used my leg space up and made it an uncomfortable ride the whole time

Food was terrible. Flight attendants OK. Only saw them at food service. Other than that they paid no attention to the passengers at all.

I had first class itinerary, yet they put me boarding group 5 from FNT to ORD! I spoke with the gate agent though, and she let me board in Group 1 like I should have been assigned. Would've liked water on that flight. I'm glad that I asked about food on the flight from ORD to DALLAS. If I fly United from ORD to any city in Texas, they always offer a hot meal and regardless if it is a time in between meal times. The excuse was that it was not dinner time yet. It was almost 6pm?? And the flight was over 2 hours. There were some healthy snack options at least, but fresh snacks like apples or something would be nice. At least offer cheese plates or similar. Please bring seatback screens like United is doing. The flight attendant in first class was wonderful.

Flight was delayed and American failed to hold my connecting flight for 5 minutes to let me board after running through CLT to get to the gate. The plane was still at the gate. Gate agent could not have cared less

The service was good during the flight, but booking process was arduous due to mysterious partial cancellation (on the return leg), which took me 1 whole day to connect to the RJ’s NYC ticketing department to straighten it out. The reservation line of RJ customer service said they did not have the authority to un-cancel it, nor refund the ticket. To undo, I would have to email the NYC office and wait 5-6 days for reply, while my departure is 5 days away. Then the NYC phone number given (and I also found on their website) had no one answering, until I got someone in accounting or HR department to transfer me to ticketing dept. Then the seat upgrade at the gate only takes cash, no CC. From speaking with other tour mates, other airlines were given them the similar headache too - cancelling part of the trip without rescheduling options.

It was fine. I didn't love the food but it was at least a real attempt at serving a meal, unlike my earlier flight from Nashville to Dallas.

Once we got on the flight everything was fine. The first leg of our flight was delayed 3 times but American sent us emails allowing us to chose a new itinerary.

Pros: "Im usually not one to sleep on ttransport but I was very comfy on this flight and was able to sleep the whole three hours"
Cons: "The snacks."
Pros: "Nothing, was scheduled to depart at 10AM, is 3 PM and no info whatsoever."
Cons: "Taking ownership of the issue by the staff at the counter."
