“Mexican Airport Shut Down After Trunp Elections”

Written on: 17/11/2016 by MateoBroussard (1 review written)

The Mexico City airport shut down with no explanation while on the Tarmac for hours. Then there was no accommodation nor assistance to catch my connecting flight. I don't think they recognize the severity of such a stop. Let the protests from the country that is our main labor and workforce begin. If they let another country shut them down the U.S. is in deep trouble. I WILL NEVER FLY UNITED again. As a result I refuse to take their free hotel accommodation and free food vouchers and forced… Read Full Review

“Always Late never in time”

Written on: 28/10/2016 by 123Simpson (1 review written)

Every time I fly with united they are always Late. And they always lie about the actual boarding times. So if you are a business person and don't want delays choose another airline instead… Read Full Review

“Very bad service”

Written on: 09/08/2016 by JaydenMcMahon151 (1 review written)

Bought 1 domestic flight ticket. Frequent flyer. Made date change, medical reason. United quoted different price than actually charged. Received email $1,900. Insurance did nothing (ripoff). 800 number from another country. Said accept charge. Supervisor overcharged for changing date. Started as $400 flight, now $1,900 for making change. NO customer service number to call and resolve issue. Real Dishonesty!!!!… Read Full Review

“Carry-on had to be checked! ”

Written on: 01/07/2016 by 1967Medina (1 review written)

I flew into O'Hare on Aer Lingus from Dublin, Ireland on 6/26/16. The experience was horrible! I had been through security check prior to leaving Dublin and on arrival in Chicago had to go through again. Was told my carry on was too big after others ahead of me were sent through with same size and larger bags! I then had to check my bag at a cost of $100.00! I also had to have a new ticket printed. The kiosks weren't working properly so many of us were having problems! When I turned to ask the… Read Full Review

“UA SFO office did great work.”

Written on: 20/06/2016 by yanmin8 (1 review written)

If there were ten stars I would give it to United airlines at SFO a ten star as their staff reached out up and beyond in helping us out. We were supposed to take airflight with UA from SFO to canada then get connected to China. Because our agent failed to notify us a change in the schedule, we missed the UA flight. Now there was no way we could get to Canada on time to catch the international flight operated by airchina. we spent one hour on the phone with our flight agent but nothing could… Read Full Review

“La very disappointing airline ”

Written on: 15/04/2016 by Smurid83 (3 reviews written)

For the price I paid for a ticket I would expect the basic customer service and amenities on this airline. Not only was my first flight cancelled due to a broken toilet we were bumped to a later flight. The flight going out was ok in itself. The flight coming back was just awful. The planes are very outdated. In flight entertainment was laughable in this day and age. I have been on better flights in the 3rd world country. Headsets were not sanitised but that it mattered as the in flight… Read Full Review

“Deceptive airline”

Written on: 20/02/2016 by Ball252 (1 review written)

I had to cancel a flight with United. They charge a $200 fee if you re book a flight within one year and tell you that the remaining sum you spent can be used for payment towards the new flight. Not the case....only after you re book and they have your money, then they tell you that the remaining sum will not be applied to this flight, but can be used for booking another flight within a year. A deceptive rip off to say the least. And, before they have your money, you get to talk to them in… Read Full Review

“OK IF YOU SAVE A LOT OF MONEY”

Written on: 02/01/2016 by Coffeyly205 (1 review written)

Went to Hawaii....none of the attendants knew how to use the cell phone chargers in the seats....I paid an extra $100 to upgrade to more room and charger. I had a led light on my keychain and after getting on hands and knees was able to find port. One hour layover for lunch and another for dinner (traveling from Atlanta to Honolulu with stops in Huston and San Francisco) ended up being 15 minutes or less, because of late landing....always allow at least an hour change planes on this airline… Read Full Review

“Very helpful employee”

Written on: 08/11/2015 by FlyUnited (1 review written)

On Nov. 2nd we had a scheduled flight from Detroit to Newark, then after 84 min. layover to Fort Myers. Thanks to Obama our first flight was delayed for over an hour and then since Obama was landing in Newark, we could not takeoff for another hour. No chance of making our connection, so we had to book a new flight. The attendant couldn't find a reasonable one on United so he found one on Delta (non stop, but 8 hours later). He then walked with us to where we could collect our baggage and… Read Full Review

“Not a flight on time!”

Written on: 15/10/2015

Traveled on United from San Francisco to Paris in September/October. All in all, we took three different flights. Every flight was delayed from 2-9 hours and two of the three flights had mechanical difficulties. We flew Premium Economy, which was a joke. There were no extra amenities other than extra leg room. The food was virtually inedible - luckily we knew this and brought our own food for our return flight home. On our return flight, both of our entertainment monitors failed to work… Read Full Review

“health safety”

Written on: 19/09/2015 by Lookout1 (1 review written)

I travelled from Baltimore to Los Angeles on United 1477 - sat in row 7D which is literary sitting next to the bathroom. The entire 5 hours of flight, I inhaled the odor and the germ/bacterial. Could not eat or drink anything as it was awful. I have reported this to the FAA in the hope that they will pay attention to the location of this seat. There are many airborne diseases today for which the passenger on this seat would be susceptible to. The flight attendants had nothing to say - all… Read Full Review

“Entertainment Doesn't work; food is scarce and bad; ”

Written on: 21/08/2015 by Orna (1 review written)

Entertainment is constantly interrupted, even the public movie. I could watch about 30 min every hour. My long flight to China became longer with scarce food, snacks you need to buy, dirty toilettes. I had little choice since this is a work trip - and these conditions were in economy+. Stay away if you can!… Read Full Review

“Worst Airline I Have Flown On”

Written on: 15/08/2015 by Tennisplayerperson (1 review written)

I have flown quite a few times before, and I have never had such a bad flying experience as I did with United. I flew a round trip from Detroit to LAX with a connecting flight each way. There was a delay for all of the 4 planes I flew on, and on the way there, there was a 2 hour delay. On the way back, there was a 1 hour delay and we sat in the plane while they fixed the air conditioning, and it was incredibly hot. I understand that they had to fix the plane's air conditioning, but they should… Read Full Review

“How united discriminates and hangs up!!!”

Written on: 14/06/2015

I have tried booking tickets with United since 3 days and kept on giving me errors when completing the booking. so finally I decided to call United and tell them to book it for me. I understand there is a fee to book it over the phone, but I told them my problem and she said let me transfer to the supervisor. I was transferred to the supervisor, she was very discriminative towards me and as well as the rep before the supervisor. I say discrimination, because I was travelling to Karachi and her… Read Full Review
