I had a great flight, staff check on me regularly if I required a drink. Food was spread out over the flight. Will flly again with United as my preferred carrier. Might upgrade from economy to mark the flight more enjoyable. Overall great service and friendly flight staff.

Seats were very uncomfortable

Keep up the always good service. Thank you

Upgrade procedure needs to be revised, if you do not complain a lot you will likely get the worst seat on the plane. Plenty of economy plus seats given to children who don't need the leg room.
