It would have preferred having TVs on the plane rather than having to download the UA app and watch on personal devices.

It was one of the best flights I’ve flown on United in a long time, including a recent international flight. This flight to Hawaii was not only friendly, courteous, and professional on all count, it was exceptional. Even my 92-year old mom shared the same sentiments. Bravo to the flight team!
