  • Fraudulent travel agent doing business with United Airlines.

    When I tried to rebook my United Airline flight thru my online travel agent, CheapAir, I was told that they have no records at all of having done business with me. That was very surprising since the United Air ticket I purchased thru them on 5/26/16 was processed normally with Confirm #N63Z9E for travel on 7/20/16. When I called CheapAir the day before to cancel the 7/20 flight that agency charged $100 on my credit card for the cancellation. (I was told the ticket price will be credited to my account and a new ticket with new fare can be reissued within one year of the 5/26/16 booking... More...

  • Complaint against UNITED Airlines

    I wish to file a official complaint against airline, UNITED. In August 2016 I made reservations in FIRST CLASS, from Denver CO to Honolulu HI. I chose seats 2B for both my flights.

I was not, have not been notified of any changes to the time, plane etc - even though there have been changes. With todays technology you can%u2019t tell me that customers that have chosen a seat cannot remain in the seat till they initially choose at the time they purchased the ticket. You will... More...

  • Getting to Aruba 1 hour late

    Hello wanted to let you know about our experience with United Airlines for our trip to Aruba from February 8th thru the 14th 2017. We traveled with 2 other couples and our flights to Aruba as well as our flights back to the states well we will all rate this out of 10 as the best a score of 1!!!!! Both times getting to Newark we had to run to the next gate to catch our connections which we just made. We all believe they just kept on making excuses why we were not taking off on time. Our flight from Newark to Aruba we got on the plane and then had to get off the plane because of computer... More...

  • No entertainment on flight58

    I was on a business class flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt on January,13. There was no entertainment program available during the whole almost 11 hour flight. As this is a substantial part of the servives I'm paying for United should reimburse an approbiate part of the fee I paid. I tried to use United's customer reply form, but I think it is not working from Germany. Poor service altogether I must say. More...

    UA257 from JFK to SFO for 08/30/2015 got delayed 4 hrs due to inclement weather finally getting cancelled. While weather can't be accurately predicted, crew could not provide any information whatsoever. An LA bound flight though could take off from the adjacent gate during the same time window. United also sent out mails for boarding with a wrong gate number. Cancellation announcement wasn't made rather told to people as they would walk up to inquire. The desk staff on ground were trying their best to divert held up passengers to avoid the rush of rebooking them all at once,... More...

My husband and I flew from Chicago to Houston on Wednesday, July 15 and then home on July 18, 2015, from Houston to Chicago. I had purchased these tickets using my United miles.

We were specific in choosing our travel route due to the times of arrival in El Salvador. Our flight leaving Edmonton was delayed by over two hours in order for the flight crew to get some rest due to them working their maximum hours. We understand the importance of this protocol but there should have been a fresh crew to take their place!!! When it was time to board the next plane in Houston, TX, there was miscommunication as to which gate to... More...

    I needed to change my flight due to the funeral being moved on the day I was supposed to leave and they wanted to charge me an extra $411. They told me if I got a death certificate they would take off $200. No sympathy was given.

  • United Airlines "Hidden" Fees

    Was just charged $75 dollars for cancelling a Mileage Plus reservation, which I made on behalf of my wife to visit her ailing father. When the situation with her father shifted, I cancelled the reservation within the 24 hour "grace" period. My MP miles will be refunded to me as will $36 of the $111 that I was charged for booking a flight using my miles. Did the agent who helped me with the reservation explain that the 24-hour cancellation policy, would cost me $75? (Must have slipped her mind.)

  • United Airlines Flight #1934 from Washington Dulles to DFW

    First flight was delayed because of "late" crew arriving to work plane, then pilot decided brakes needed to be changed so another delay for aircraft maintenance (isn't this done via FAA Maintenance guidelines on a constant basis/schedule; if not, that's a scary thought), so my 5:15 flight was delayed to 5:30, then 6:30, then 7:30, then 8:30. Finally they told us we would leave at 9:00, hurry get on, then we sat at the gate for another 2 hours, then because we never got clearance to leave the gate (couldn't we have had priority to fly out instead of cargo...

  • UA coast-to-coast PS service

    I think it is outrageous to charge $250 on top of deducting 20,000 miles to upgrade one-way to business class on a NY/LA PS flight. The in-flight experience is not worth it. The food and beverage service and the cabin comfort are far inferior to the former three-class PS service. Is there anything else UA can do to alienate its most loyal customers? Yes, the new mileage credit based on fare paid, not miles flown, is another insult. More...

    I don't normally write reviews, but I am sorely disappointed with my experience booking with United Airlines. Their advertised fares DO NOT represent actual prices. They have found a loophole, and can misrepresent their fares by posting a certain fare, but upon booking, travelers find out that the price they selected depends upon seat availability. I went through the majority of the booking process, only to find out that the only seats available were in the upper classes (meaning, not "economy"). This added a minimum of $50 to the price listed. On top of that, there were... More...

  • United Airlines - Poor Customer Service

    I was on the 10 pm flight from Hilo to LAX and just prior to boarding, we were told that the plane did not have the navigation software to guide the plane to LAX (where it just came from). They had to fly a technician in from Honolulu to install it and we finally took off over three hours later at 1:15 am. We didn't receive much of an apology and I received updates faster on the text service than from the local announcements, which just sounded confused. Coming back to Hilo, there was no video for almost the entire flight due to "normal flight movement" or something to that... More...
