                                          Easy boarding and on-time flight. Can't complain at all.

                                          Air Wisconsin plane too hot and seats are too small for any normal sized adult. If everyone was 5 feet 6 inches or shorter, they would be at most acceptable.

                                          Pleasant flight, hassle free.

                                          Everything was OK!!

                                          May 2, 2019

                                          No email or text notifications came to my phone. Airtran said to get off at international terminal, then the information person told us terminal 1, then another person said terminal 2. We spent way too much time looking for the checkin counter with our group of 2 people over 70, a 4 year old and her father., Everything fine once we located the Alaska Airlines check in desk, but we were exhausted.

                                          Do not like United new Zone seating. First class gets no advantage boarding the plane

                                          Sep 10, 2018

                                          Like that I could order a soft drink from my seat and did not have to wait til an attendant came around.

                                          Aug 6, 2018

                                          Please have some sandwiches to purchase on the plane, the sack packed for 8$ is no good. Thanks.

                                          It is not right to force passengers to listen to lengthy and repeated credit card pitches. Mention it once and make it brief.

                                          Had to discard $100 in olive oil and 25 yr old balsamic vinegar!

                                          Flight was cancelled and staff was unhelpful and rude.

                                          Jun 12, 2019

                                          I made the reservation for four of us but all of us were seated separately and all of us were in middle seats. Even before our flight I spoke with customer service but the lady told me in front of a few more customers that my ticket is very limited and there is nothing she could do for us. I’m not very happy with the United flight back from California

                                          Jan 4, 2019

                                          We were delayed two hours on the tarmac for multiple issues making us miss our connection. United then wanted us to wait in the airport for 14 hours for the next flight.

                                          Cross country flight: no screen, no usb to charge devices to watch entertainment, tiny bag of pretzels. Criminal.

                                          Aug 27, 2018

                                          United couldn't get a plane to the gate on time and as a result, I would miss my connection which resulted in having to take a redeye.

                                          Jul 20, 2018

                                          Every leg of this trip was either significantly delayed or late. This was a horrible flight experience.

                                          Apr 4, 2018

                                          Unnecessarily forced checking of carry-ons, no gate check, flight attendant discussed not enough food available in front of passengers, then harshly refused to address hungry passenger concerns, gave away some of her sandwiches to other flight attendant, and initiated power struggle with passenger on complaint, saying “I would not have been dismissive of you - I would never do that. I have a Ph.D. As a minister - I am always kind to everyone! (Defensively). The whole experience was so stressful from start to finish with harried, controlling, harsh - burned out - staff that I am finally resolving to do anything in my ability not to ever take United again. The stress and demoralization of employees and their poor treatment of passengers are creating a situation that really does.not feel safe. It eeems like a disaster waiting to happen - more like being a prisoner than a guest...unacceptable!
