Happy that the check in staff tried to put us on an earlier flight automatically as we were really early due to our earlier flight coming in early. This was great for us.

United staff were great in helping me us re book seats after missing my flight, but Expedia was unhelpful & wanted to charge me $990 fir 3 new tickets, United put us on the next available flight. Not too happy after a 4 hr delay out of Melbourne.
