Both flights were late by about 30 minutes .. Other than that, everything was ok..

Both flights were late by about 30 minutes .. Other than that, everything was ok..

United cancelled the flight after a 2 hour delay. The only choice was a 24 hour delay which was then 3 hours delayed.

Not worth the premium paid for the first class ticket

Fine. Though no food or entertainment so the survey needs to be updated with those options.

Backpack should NOT allowed put in the flight bin , only put it under the seat. I can't find space put my carry on luggage!!! and I pay for it ! that was very bad experience

Standard flight experience, but there is only power at the seat to row 20 on the aircraft, on my initial check in it did not say that was the case

I feel like they have upgraded the app since I last flew United and I found it to be super helpful. I had stopped flying United unless absolutely necessary and my experience on this trip indicates they have been working hard to improve their services.

The ride was good but no food ot entertainment hence, it was just over an hour flight.

Wifi wasn't working on one of the UA flights after boarding.

This flight was a code share on Air New Zealand.

It was canceled twice in a 4 week timeframe, the second time was one week before my departure. So I canceled the whole flight and got a refund and went from San Francisco to Athens with Condor

Everything nice. Only nice staff and kind people. Thank you Air Canada. I will be back ❤️

Went well. On time good loading food ok. Had to wait an hour for bags at pearson

It might have been closer to being on time. Maybe next time I could fly from London to Toronto?

Flights were mostly on time. Pilots were courteous and provided direction and information appropriately. The flights encountered mild turbulence which was handled well. Staff on planes and at the airports were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

They changed our seats so my husband and I could sit together. Gluten free option for meals would be nice. Negative experience is that our luggage was "forgotten" at Schiphol so a day later we ate still waiting word on when we will get it!

Flight was delayed, some of the outlets for charging were not working, and some of the entertainment screens were also not working

Flight was cancelled. We were rebooked on American Airlines and had to pay baggage costs again.

I paid for my seat, very noisy and my seat was not comfortable for a long flight. very disappointed.

Our plane was quite dirty, it was clear that it had not been cleaned since it’s prior use, and that a small child had been sitting in our row, leaving crumbs all over the seat, the floor, and scribbling on the wall with a colored pencil.
