Nice flight

The WiFi wasn’t working but other than that, it was great.

Our connecting flight was in a different terminal. It would have been nice to know there was a transfer bus that keeps you from exiting and having to go through security again. There was nothing about this on the United website.

Not happy about all the added money to pick a seat and have a carry on. How about setting an all inclusive price?
