Ever been on a flight which included an extended layover due to a 2 hour delay, no place to lay down, a rude flight crew, terrible food, and half the promised services not functioning?

Read on about my United flight from Munich to Chicago....

Excellent trip report. Really enjoyed reading it.

As usual some a.net chaps are calling you high maintenance for criticizing UA's service.

Thanks for reading!

Its a good thing s/he got shut down for the most part. Clearly some snowflakes that can't take in reality, I guess....

Awesome TR, with a very apt title!

Absolutely disgusting service from UA. I guess their goal was to just get people from Point A to Point B in the most unpleasant manner. They probably need to take a leaf out of the Indian, European & Middle-Eastern airliners books (some of them can still get better) on how take care of guests on board.

I guess the entire experience was unsavoury.
The inadvertant delay.
The racial security check at MUC.
Pax hogging resting areas at MUC.
The racial cabin crew on board, and their inconsistencies, and irritating chat.
Possibly dirty pillow, headphones and blanket.
Those tiny unresponsive and slow IFE screens.,
Bad food. Not unsurprising.
Dirty lav.

On the report itself: yet another wonderful set of descriptions and pictures!
The MUC spotting, wing and cloud pictures, and the aircraft shadow!
One can feel your discomfort by the vivid way you have described things.

Racial people at A.net. `Comes to the US to study from an economically weaker country, and criticises US airlines, how dare he?'
One reason most of us do not patronise this site very actively.
However, kudos to you for calling a spade...nothing else.
On their faces (his, in this case). It is reassuring to see the general support you got!
Cheers, Sumantra.

Thanks bud! Should've put this title on the TR itself, then the real snowflakes would've been triggered Wink

For the price I paid, I expected just a tad more. Edible food, and a less racist crew. Other than that, I got from point A to be B delayed by 32 minutes, so I guess I can't be too unhappy Razz

Its just what it is, sir. Not all flights can be as great as the ones I have been on. Law of averages, perhaps. However, a racist crew is just unacceptable.

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed reading this flight report Smile

I do not see this reply anywhere sir. It has perhaps been deleted, or you have seen it elsewhere. Could you link me to it, please?
I guess the land of the free doesn't allow free speech after all! Laughing
With that being said, by and large people have been quite disappointed with United in this respect, and have recommended me to take up with United, and I will be doing so.

No Sir, no one posted this, but I have seen this kind of attitude over the years on A.net. Disgusting!
