                                          Would be nice to have on screen entertainment

                                          The flight was delayed by weather for 2 hours!

                                          Dec 31, 2019

                                          The app to watch entertainment was not working so we could not watch anything on a long flight

                                          Nov 27, 2019

                                          Checkin was very crowded and confusing, but takeoff on time

                                          Aug 16, 2019

                                          Flight experience was good, but United’s nickle and diming approach to ticket pricing and fees is very unappealing.

                                          No delays whatsoever from IAD to SFO nonstop - perfect flight; didn't feel like a 5-hour flight at all. Also: BEEF JERKY!!!

                                          Asiana is the best airline in Asia for economy seating. Excellent leg room in economy. Excellent helpful, courteous, and friendly flight attendants. Food slightly above average but it arrived hot.

                                          Check in was a complete mess with long lines. There was no WiFi in the plane so even the united entertainment app didn’t work.
