must download app to have inflight movies; would be nice to announce this first before takeoff; food was not very good

Jun 27, 2019

Boarding was a little unorganized, couldn't hear what zone was being called. Everyone was crowded at the gate waiting to board and seemed was confused about when to board.

Despite plane problems the crew handled everything professionally and positively.

Plane was small for a three hour flight

This flight was for my 77 year old father. The attendant virtually sprinted with him in the wheel chair so he wouldn't miss his flight. Kudos to United!
