Orbitz was bare bones but for a 3he flight it was fine. Wouldn't fly them long distance though. Seats dont move at all. My squad car seats are more comfortable and it's a fleet vehicle

Feb 23, 2020

Will travel again with United.

Feb 21, 2020

Didn’t expect not to be able to have carry on included on a ticket that cost more than $400 per person. I was shocked. Terrible idea

Feb 20, 2020

fly was late taking off

Jan 23, 2020

The chatty ladies - ugh! Not the airline’s fault but what can you do to get them to converse without the entire plane knowing?

Jan 5, 2020

There needs to be a neutral option. I landed so the flight was good.

Top of the line folks and flight!

Orbitz only gets you half way there. I paid $60 for two checked bags and over $70 in seat upgrade ONE WAY.and thats another $260 round trip in fees in addition to Orbitz fees for a couple.

Feb 1, 2019

With all of the problems with the weather and delays the staff was amazing and did everything they could with a smile even though they were as frustrated as some of the people.

Feb 1, 2019

Total experience was good so i will definitely be looking here for future trips.
