Having flown on United Airlines on previous family visits to the US I found them very disappointing. Domestically they seem to have adopted all the worst aspects of budget airlines back home with a vengeance - $25 charge for checking bags in even though I was well within the allowance specified on my around the world ticket and if you wanted to watch any inflight entertainment you had to pay extra for it using your credit card which nobody did.
Many people I spoke to blamed this on United Airlines' recent merger with Continental Airlines but this seemed to depend on which of the former airlines used the airport as a hub, the blame expressed was the other way around at former Continental Airline hubs.
