I liked that the planes were on time and people were friendly. The check-in at CMH was slow. Two long lines after checking in online. Why?? No room at the airport for these lines so people struggled to get by each other with all their luggage. People were friendly and helpful but the system was poorly designed. Baggage fees are excessive after high flight costs.

Seats too small and lieg room was poor. How about putting the customer first on your airline not the bottom line?

Was not offered food, was not sure what the protocol was. This is my first flight with this airline and wasn’t sure. Would like to know if I use this airline again.

Our brand new luggage was stained with grease or oil. Complaint to United not helpful. She blamed us for buying light colored luggage.
