Only airline I’ve flown that treats their passengers with respect and consideration.... kept us informed in a timely manner about the plane’s difficulties... when they realized it would take a bit longer they brought us bottled water and snacks.... and the text messages that we received were not only informative but acknowledged that they realized that the delays were not what we had expected... and they apologized. Well done, United!!
