This will be the last time I use Orbitz since I’ve been nickeled and dimes with getting seats and paying for baggage. I could have booked directly and it would not have cost me an extra $150 like it has here. What’s with you can’t upgrade if you booked a particular price point?
Yes, why charge extra for seating? I had to pay an $50 for wife and myself to sit together? That's "nickle and diming" your customers. Otherwise, a good flight.
Seats not comfortable and need to recline more. I’m only 5’8” and 180 lbs. couldn’t sleep
The seats are too narrow and leg room is insufficient.
Other than having to pay for our seat selection to ensure our family was able to sit together with our small children we were pleasantly surprised United waived the checked bag fee during Hurricane Florence. The staff was friendly and accommodating.
Seats awfully small. I think the smallest for a commercial airlines. Thank goodness I am not a 6 foot tall man.
The stewardess should be equally nice to everyone. Not just to the VIP’s ...
The breakfast sandwich for 7.99 was old and hard. Not too good. Everything else was satisfactory.
Orbitz did not notify us of flight # and time change. Thus missed flight and trip delayed 24 hours. A major and expensive (for us) problem. I am unsure if I can trust using Orbitz booking in the future
