                                          The seats are small. I’m 140lbs and am too big.

                                          Very expensive for flying but a fine trip

                                          Oct 1, 2019

                                          Thank you for being smart about your boarding--letting window passengers on first! SO SMART. This flight maybe had an issue with the PA system, it was very difficult to hear the announcements.

                                          Far superior to American flight I took outbound both with respect to comfort and service.

                                          Sep 11, 2018

                                          Nice lady at DCA helped me to get on earlier plane. I am happy to be home 4 hours earlier. Thank you!

                                          United is totally unreliable.

                                          Dec 31, 2019

                                          Flight cancelled for no good reason- other airlines flying, despite rain

                                          Nov 28, 2019

                                          They changed gate without making an announcement

                                          Guilty planes

                                          Sep 19, 2018

                                          United has the worst customer service I've seen. They also treat economy class people like dirt, literally like you have "no status." Obviously this is to dissuade people from using economy class, but it actually makes me never want to fly United again. Shame on them!

                                          Sep 5, 2018

                                          It was such a horrible experience. And I paid for this which is so sad ..

                                          Jul 21, 2018

                                          Had flight rebooked twice because of delays and engine maintenance issues and my luggage was lost. Very unhappy.

                                          Jun 20, 2018

                                          They get everyone boarded then say we have to wait an hour. Then they tell us we are delayed until 930pm when the flight was SUPPOSED to be 320 to begin with
