    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good mileage plus program, cheap fares
    Cons: Bad customer service, delays, cramped seats and the list goes on...

    Summary: If ever an airline can make you feel guilty for buying a ticket, providing its revenues and paying its employees’ salaries, United is the one. I still have visions of the check-in assistant angrily explaining why she could not check my bag all the way ... read more

    Pros: Efficient service, real ticketing system, economy plus
    Cons: It's a plane ride

    Summary: While on a business trip, I got stuck overnight in Detroit due to bad weather. The next day, the no-frills carrier I was on managed to get us to their hub in Chicago, but we missed our connecting flight, and their attempt to fix it was not acceptable in ... read more

    Pros: Pretty good international service; short check-in queues at Heathrow; good FF programme
    Cons: Domestic flights are a nightmare; economy seats are pretty cramped

    Summary: I fly United internationally a couple of times a year. They are, on average, pretty good, especially if you get decent seating, which you can do if you get to Premier status in Mileage Plus. Food is OK. Flight attendants are OK. I was ... read more

    Pros: Great service
    Cons: Small planes

    Summary: I usually don't get to fly a lot, but users of epinions may think I'm a regular airline traveler as this is my second straight epinion on an airline. This time I flew home (Eugene) for Easter Break. My college gave a few extra days off around the Easter ... read more

    Pros: We arrived safely and without incident, although delayed due to weather.
    Cons: We left approximately an hour late with few status updates. Not very friendly.

    Summary: Having flown dozens of times during my life I was surprised that I'd never flown United until last week. Small Memphis Operation United has a small operation out of Memphis, with only two or three agents checking people in. ... read more

  • Too Big for their britches.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of flights
    Cons: Who knows if there will be a flight or seat by the time you leave.

    Summary: It seems as if the airline giant has become to big to control themselves. I think they forgot that there is a lot of money to make from the average family. They may do well with business travelers, I don't know. What I do know is that they are terrible ... read more

    Cons: a total crapshoot.

    Summary: I was quite nervous. After all, I was on my way to spend three months in France, staying with someone I had never before met in person. My mom was nearly certain I would end up dead. Plus, it was around 6am. I was less than pleased to be up at such ... read more

    Pros: haven't crashed or gotten food poisoning (yet)
    Cons: cramped seats, dog food, no entertainment, old aircraft, few flight choices, smelly arcraft

    Summary: Until recently, United Airlines offered (relatively) edible gunk, average size seats, and a halfway decent entertainment selection. Now even that is taken away from us. When flying coach, you kinda get the feeling that you're packed somewhat tighter ... read more

    Pros: Friendly people.
    Cons: Same with all airlines, the food could be better.

    Summary: I have flown with United Airlines many times and I really don't have any complaints. They have friendly and helpful service. When ever I have flown it was usually with a baby or two. I have flown by myself when my first child was a baby. And I have flown ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Many destinations, good service.
    Cons: It can be expensive if you're a last-minute traveler.

    Summary: I travel very frequently on UAL. It's not very often that I receive poor service. More often than not, it's due to my mileage account that I receive perks and special attention. Because of the level of service that the full-service airlines provide, ... read more

    Pros: Flight Attendants, Flights EARLY (Better than On-Time), Red Carpet Room, Movie Choices
    Cons: None I can think of

    Summary: I just flew from New York to London and back on United. It was wonderful. I flew out on a very new Boeing 777 and returned on a 767 that was equipped in the same manner. The service was wonderful- they have the most pleasant and attentive flight ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great time table, Excellent connections with the Star Alliance, Fantastic for International travelers
    Cons: A bit pricey for Business "C" Class

    Summary: I'm a 100K flier (and have been for eight years now). Since I fly mostly international, I am flying exclusively on widebody (747, 767, 777, etc) aircraft, not the Shuttle-by-United or other smaller type aircraft. I think that while United is not ... read more

    Pros: Got us there -- free extra seat one leg -- free movies
    Cons: food, seats close together

    Summary: I love to travel. When I married my husband the joke was that I only married him for airplane tickets. Usually our airline of choice is Delta; however, they don't fly everywhere we want to go. One area of the world Delta doesn't cover well is Asia. ... read more
