The updates on my phone were handy and prompted me to see an agent when the planes were delayed. She switched me to the earlier flight and my baggage even made it so I arrived at the same time I had planned with everything, despite the late flights.

Two minutes decision time for flight change at dinner when runway issue was announced two weeks ago is ridiculous. Only options offered early am or next day or another airport. No customer service for long time card holding user. Poor response.

The most unpleasant experience I've had with an airline. My baggage ticket jammed in United's machine and it took me 20 minutes to find someone to help me to resolve it. Because of that, I was two minutes late for my plane, and the flight attendant wouldn't let me on and was really rude about it. She kept pointing at her watch and saying I was too late. As a result, I missed a big portion of the meeting I was supposed to attend and may have to repeat it. Horrid!
