Reviews from Customers:


Much better than anticipated

I have just returned from Newark Liberty airport having paid £406 for a round trip. On the plus side: The flight staff was superb. Newark ground staff excellent. Couldn’t ask for a veggie dish on either flight via the app but got one regardless. Plenty of leg room, excellent entertainment package onboard and spot on flights. Not what I expected from a budget US Airline. Definitely, will fly with them again.

Thanks, United.
