                    Location ok, hotel is clean, water in the shower is good, bed and pillow are comfortable. The lacking point is just the lighting. The lights provided is very strong and sharp for the eyes. Not comfortable. So it’s either too bright or too dark.

                                          Flight got cancelled, they rescheduled me on an American flight which was much appreciated and only a couple hours later in the day.

                                          I might didn’t like it that I had to pay for baggage.

                                          I was a little disappointed that I checked in via the app but then was told we had to check in again at the airport. Not sure why we needed to do both.

                                          Please keep the RDU- SFO direct flights. They're awesome. Love the equipment, the people and the entertainment. I never take the United flight anymore!

                                          Discovering the yoga room at San Francisco airport was a highlight of the trip. What a wonderful space for centering and stretching on a long travel day. Thank you!

                                          We had time to make the flight but the staff refused to help us and cost us 2100$ in rebooking fees. We will never ever fly with this airline again and will tell everyone we know about this horrible experience.

                                          Stewardess Sharon was very rude and condescending on 3 occasions.
