      Water pressure for showering was very poor. Thermostate did not regulate the temperature in the room. We would heat the room to a high temp and have to shut it off. If we didn’t shut it off but lower the temp it would cool the room. Very hard to regulate. I told the staff when we checked out.

                                          Was suppiosed to have a wheelchair available @ Des Moines arrival & no one was at the gate when I arrived...another passenger helped me get to an elevator to get to baggage claim. Disappointing.

                                          The flight from PDX to Chicago was very uncomfortable, seats small and so close together. Shoulders touching seat mates, impossible to share arm rests. We felt trapped for three plus hours! NOT GOOD.

                                          Rude employees. Extra fees for everything. I won't fly United anymore.
