Great flight. There was a 45 minute delay but United was good in providing feedback.

All my headphone were wireless, charge me $2 more and offer me the free headphones, please!!! And couldn't select my seat in advance, that would have been reassuring before the flight.

overpriced but had to purchase since reserved flight had been canceled, this flight at last minute cost me over $200 more for a one way flight SFO to LAX

Shameful $30 for Baggage. Your profits are high enough without it. For second bag $20 is okay.
