United Airlines Compliment - Another Good Trip
SINGAPORE VIA NARITA/SAN FRANCISCO TO PORTLAND, OR -- Earlier this week, I flew home from Singapore on United Airlines. In this day of airline complaints, this makes the second time this year that I have absolutely nothing negative to comment on.
Every single one of my flights were on-time and we even arrived early to my transfer points--one in Narita (Tokyo) and one in San Francisco.
My seats were comfortable enough (Economy Plus), but, to be honest, nothing will ever be comfortable when you're sitting in it for 8 hours at a time, business class included. I highly recommend the bulkhead seats as they do give you more room for your legs and for things you may want out during your flight. I usually fashion a leg rest out of my carryon which helps considerably. With the seats in the other rows, this is not possible.
The food was acceptable, but, then, I never expect gourmet food, so I am never disappointed. They served two meals on each flight--free I might add.
They offered several movie choices (with your personal screen) on both long flights. This really helps pass the time. There were actually good movies that I hadn't yet seen. That's always a plus.
When I arrived at destination, my luggage was there too! Everything was intact, as usual, and nothing was missing. I actually have never had any problems with my luggage, even though we often hear complaints about people coming up with missing items. I will consider myself fortunate. But, I have also come to believe that these incidences do not happen very often. If they did, I surely would have had it happen by now.
Last, but not least, every single flight attendant on my three flights were all courteous and helpful.
Really, what more could I ask for?
