Great flight

Aug 26, 2019

I couldn't get the WiFi to work, and it was nearly impossible to find the outlet to plug in my phone (it was underneath the seat - really??). I also couldn't access the in-flight entertainment because it was only available on my personal device and nobody had instructed me to download the United app before the flight took off. Since the WiFi wasn't working properly, I couldn't download it once we were in the air. Voila - no in-flight entertainment.
