Airline reviews

Pros: "Boarded quickly and got into air fast."
Cons: "Way behind schedule and virtually no snacks or drinks."

Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "Plane on time"
Cons: "Newark airport security was awful. Only one X-ray security area. Small tight area. No air. Security/TSA kept blaming the customer’s for the slowness. When is lack of X-ray and machines."

Pros: "They lost my luggage."

Pros: "Missed this flight"
Cons: "Missed this flight"

Pros: "Kept getting bumped into"
Cons: "Hospitality"

Cons: "Seats were too small; my knees were always against the seat in front of me. Take-off from Dulles was extremely rough. The landing wasn't much better."

Pros: "Amazing amount of legroom! Very comfortable seating, even in economy."
Cons: "I would like to see passengers behave better. One lady pushed in at boarding and went ahead despite the checker telling her she was out of order, Another passenger used both underseat storage in front of him and under him so the person in back of him had no place to put things. Staff should try hard"

Cons: "When transferring our luggage from the flight from Panama, we had to walk all the way to the entrance of the airport as if we had just arrived there instead of being able to transfer the luggage directly. This was not communicated, and we ended up walking around a lot and having to ask at the info desk. When we finally got to the counter, the woman there gave confusing instructions and was incredibly rude to us. As for entertainment on the flight, we couldn't do anything without the app, which you have to get before you're on the plane. Boo."

Pros: "This was my first experience flying United. The staff and pilot were friendly even though everyone seemed grumpy and tired. There was a poor baby that cried almost the whole flight-I get it, I was tired and wanted to cry too...ha! They handled everyone with patience and a smile."
Cons: "When we landed in Columbus we were stuck on the plane for almost a half hour because there were issues with the walking bridge. This was annoying."

Pros: "Everything was as planned"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful."

Cons: "This airline is never on time. Their employees are rude and unhelpful. Planes were dirty! I won’t fly them again"

Pros: "The service"
Cons: "Plane too small and uncomfortable"

Pros: "Flight on time, good polite service. Ground crew helped me check in again after the flight from Europe and find my way around O'Hare."

Pros: "Entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "When we finally got in board and going the pilot got us there quickly to make up for lost time. Staff was nice, it was beyond their control."
Cons: "We waited an hour to board due to a seat that would not stay upright and mechanics fixing it. I was very tired after international travel and it was my last flight to get to my car and go home."

Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working and food selection is non existent. Other than that, a very pleasant flight overall."

Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"

Pros: "Nice flight attendant"

Pros: "On time. Friendly employees"
Cons: "The snacks"

Pros: "Comfort"

Pros: "Landing"
Cons: "No Information about when we would leave jersey"

Pros: "cheap tix"

Cons: "The flight was delayed several hours And no one knew what was going on"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to a delayed aircraft; followed by a broken seat. Seat seemed to have tape wrapped around the seat back tray."

Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Was way too hot on the plane."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "I never got to make the flight. I was unable to take the flight because it was cancelled by United without my consent. I still needed the flight too. I'll never use priceline or United airlines for travel EVER again, and I'll be sure to spread the word. No matter who I talked to, I was blamed for the problem. I've never had a bigger waste of money. $550+"

Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"

Pros: "Felt like a bothersome passenger even though I did not ask for anything. The snack was tossed at me in an empty seat instead of handed to me."

Pros: "Dirty, tired airplane. This (and every other flight going out around our gate) was "oversold"- egging travelers to give up their seats"

Pros: "the plane was on time, smooth take off and landing, crew was efficient and friendly. it was great !"

Cons: "Group 5 was a very delayed boarding beyond what it should have been with no explanation. Felt like second class citizen"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and had plenty of leg room"

Pros: "The crew were very understanding that we all just wanted to be home (the flight was delayed for three hours, so we didn't get home until 2am). They were efficient and got us home safely and quickly."
Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."

Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "feeling cramped"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1 hrs because short of crew member"

Pros: "Crew was very nice and was very responsive with passengers."

Pros: "Time of flight"
Cons: "Crew. The flight attendant in the forward cabin was rude and yelled at the passengers."

Cons: "The aircraft smelled like the restroom due to the fact the aircraft came out of the hangar and the bathroom didn't get cleaned. This flight was delayed as well."

Pros: "Slow return of carry on at end of flight....crowded jetlway with so many waiting."

Pros: "Plane was very comfortable. Attendants were friendly and it was very smooth and quick!"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Maybe pick a packet food that is more favoured by more people. The wasabi peas weren't a good choice for our family"

Cons: "Good trip overall."

Pros: "Even though it was a bumpy flight do to strong winds, the pilot did his best to find smooth air"
Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. Our flight actually disappeared from the tv screen and our luggage was not out. Finally after waiting about 20 minutes it popped back up on the screen and them arrived. This is the second time this has happened to me in Columbus and I don't fly there too often"

Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"
Cons: "When we arrived 20 mins late and then no one was at the terminal gate to put sky walk in place! After 20 min wait we had to walk down the aircraft stairs outside and go thru a door and climb two flights of stairs just to get into the airport"

Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"
