I do not remember if I have ever traveled on United Express, but a short recently a business trip brought me to this really enjoyable flight from SFO to ONT. As it was just a short regional one hour flight, the airplane was smaller then those I am used to seeing on other domestic flight. So the overhead bins were very small and limited, but I was Ok as was caring a smaller roller bag. There was only one flight attendant. Professional, welcoming, and good on-board customer service. Overall, really enjoyable flight.
The United airline's customer service at the airport is one of the best. I was late for my flight two times on different occasions and they redirected me free of charge to my final destination, and even paid my hotel stay overnight+meal at the hotel. Also the staff was very friendly and understanding of my situation.
They also operate with different types of aircraft. For example on my flight from Berlin to NY I was in a pretty much new Boeing with many extras, like power charger near to my seat and big, good resolution screen on the back of the front seat. But on my flight from NY to London the Boeing was kinda old, with only a small screen on the back of the front seat.
Overall I like this airline.
I am writing this review in order to thank the flight attendants on flight UA1974 on July 9 MIA - EWR. There were passengers on this flight (including myself), who had connecting transatlantic flights. Since the departure and the arrival were delayed with almost 1.5 hr, when we landed in EWR one of the flight attendants (sorry didn't get her name) asked the passengers, who did not have connecting flights to remain in their seats, in order to let those, who are in a hurry for the next flight, to make it on time. Thanks to this thoughtful request I made it out of the plane very fast, even though my seat was in the back of the plane and I had plenty of time to get to the gate for my flight to TLV. I believe others was able to do it as well. Thank you United!
Flight route EWR-TLV. We flew on a new aircraft, I believe B777-300 ER - very smooth take off and landing and even though I had a window seat in Economy, it was comfortable enough for me to work on my laptop for almost the whole duration of the flight. The weather was nice, so the flight experience was very pleasant. Wasn't thrilled with the food though.
