                                          We were delayed for more than 3 hours (with 3 small children - ugh!) due to a flat tire and a battery replacement. Sounds like an old car that wasn't properly maintained. So sad that there are not regular checks for things like this.

                                          We all LOVED our pilot. He got us out of the snow and it was a VERY smooth trip. Thank you again.

                                          Provide better quality of snacks. The flight from Chicago to Knoxville had a problem with wheels -Before take off there was regular jolting before taxiing. Landing was slightly rough as well. It was flight no 4190 on 11/24/19

                                          Nov 8, 2019

                                          Did not like having to pay a fee in order to select a seat until assignment of one at check-in.

                                          Flight was canceled due to "extreme weather in Chicago". Wasn't a cloud in the sky. Had to cancel my entire vacation. Will NEVER fly United again.
