Today we are talking about flying United Airlines to New York. I live in Edinburgh, so my thoughts will be on Edinburgh - Newark.
I know friends who've went on holiday flying the cheapest way, taking stop-overs. The things you really need to consider, is it really worth the hassle ? How much money are you saving ? United Airlines fly Edinburgh to Newark direct, leaving at half 9 in the morning and arriving in Newark at 12 lunchtime. The flight is 7 and a half hours, but everytime I fly with United Airlines it always arrives early. I've always chosen to fly with United Airlines, as it's a direct flight from Edinburgh to Newark. Also it's a morning flight, meaning I arrive in New York for lunchtime and still have the whole day.
I personally like the window seat, because I hate feeling like am stopping someone from getting out to go to the toilet. I'll go to the toilet just before they start doing the boarding call, then I can last the whole flight without needing the toilet.
I think I've flew with United Airlines way too many times now. When I get on the plane, I find myself thinking "those flight attendants were on my flight before". Haha am not too sure it's a good thing to remember the staff from previous flights.
The entertainment system on the plane is very slow. I find I keep have to hit the screen a few times for it to work. I worry sometimes if am annoying the person in the seat in front hammering on their seat haha. The first time I flew with United Airlines I said to people beside me I'd never fly with them again, as their entertainment system is slow. Entertainment isn't everything, I thought of the ups and downs and would rather a direct flight over flight entertainment.
