I've never had a problem with United. We use them occasionally when traveling back & forth from Germany to the US...But mainly when Lufthansa flights are full or not available

This should be moved to the Travel sub-forum.

I'm 1K on United. Within the United States, I think their service is comparable to the other non-low-cost carriers operating domestically. (eg US Airways, Delta, American).

United has frequent cross-country non-stops and manageable hubs in SF, Denver, Chicago and the NYC area (JFK I think is a hub) so that could be a key decision factor to select them or not. Same with price. Unless you get a good sale, their prices seem slightly higher than some of the other carriers.

however, you will only allowed to check in 1 luggage domestic now, which is sucks
