I liked the fact that the gate personnel allowed me to check in my carry on for free before I boarded the plane. 👍

Getting a seat assignment was a little weird but I did get to sit with my traveling buddy so it worked out.

The staff in LA was very slow and not concerned about the time at all. Purpose of lines not apparent. Almost missed flight

No WiFi during flight

I normally don’t flight with them unless there isn’t a choice after two time being stuck in an airport over night and this time I was nervous then there was immediate delays but they made good time and overall this time it was okay.

Nice airline kinda nickel and dime you so that “cheaper fare” is almost as much as other airlines. Think this is the 1st time I’ve ever paid for general seat selection

The only issue I had was having to pay what I felt was an exorbitant amount of money to check my bag

Apr 22, 2019

I was not happy at all with the policies with United nor the space in the planes / the age of the planes but the only reason I might fly them again is because of the employees in particular at the Chicago airport. They were helpful friendly

Nice surprise to have wheelchair waiting at destination. We didn’t even request it but staff saw hubby was struggling. Thank you!

I would recommend the charge for a checked bag be included in the airfare as the price comes out to be the same as other airlines. No need to go the extra step to buy a carry on if it’s already included.
