Flights Review

Jan 13, 2020

Everything was fine except for Chicago international Ohare. It delayed the flight twice. And they did not send a review from their part.

Seems like smaller seats ,

Flights landed and took off in time. I would take United again 😀

Apr 11, 2018

My Orbitz information was confusing. It stated that my flight was from Terminal 2 at Ohare, but my cab driver knew I needed to be dropped off at Terminal 1 for checkin.

The coffee was great

Mar 8, 2018

Haven't flown United in over 10 years. Used to fly them a lot. Very bad experiences back then. This trip has been very good, so far. I hope it continues on my return home.
