Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Generally flight was ok."
Cons: "Food was not too much. Probably men was hungry, for me it did not taste good."
Cons: "Aircon was too cool"
Cons: "Self Check in was appalling ... minimal staff to assist and then they walk away and you have to ask again for help."
Cons: "Seats are not very big."
Pros: "Not much. Did not get some"
Cons: "Delayed and cancelled"
Pros: "My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee."
Cons: "The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers."
Cons: "I could not check in online. Although I only have carry on I still have to go to the United Airlines counter to get my check in card. The food was awful. The crew was extremely rude ( I would present a proper complain through United Airlines website). The small tv were completely old. I bought a ticket for ANA but operated by United Airlines. but I was not expecting this awful experience."
Pros: "Nobody bugged me about plugging my laptop and cellphone into the wall for charging. I wanted to check out the spice shops in the airport but they were closed both times I was there. That would have been something I might have liked."
Cons: "Customs in Trinidad, even for transit is a pain. You go through customs, get dumped outside, have to recheck your luggage whenever the counter decides its going to open. 11 hour layover on the way down, 6 hour layover on the way up. Food options were fried chicken (KFC), fried chicken (Churches), fried chicken (the local franchise), and Subway. Since the layover was late at night and I was a woman traveling alone, I did not want to leave the airport (and still drag my luggage because the airline counter was not open yet to check in to my connecting flight)."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very kind and helpful, always smiling and happy to be of service."
Cons: "It wasn't Air New Zealand, but operated by United Airlines. The plane was uncomfortable, and the entertainment system seemed clunky, unintuitive and outdated. The selection of entertainment, poor in quality, I thought. There were lost of things to watch, but a lot of it was of poor quality. The food was acceptable, but again, it felt like it was done on-the-cheap, and I was eating airline food a la 20 years ago."
Pros: "The flight was quite smooth and left virtually on time. Boarding was simple and fast and the economy plus seats were extremely comfortable."
Cons: "The food was quite poor. United can learn a thing or two about food by flying Cathay Pacific to see what decent airline food is like. As far as entertainment is concerned, while United had a great movie selection the method of controlling the playback was quite poor. Pausing the movie would actually make it stop on several occasions."
Cons: "They ran out of the food I wanted"
Pros: "The crew was polite. Flight was late leaving Charlotte but landed on time in Newark."
Pros: "The aircraft was spacious and well appointed. The crew MEL to LAX were very friendly and offered food and beverages at regular intervals, and walked the aisles regularly in case the passengers needed anything..."
Cons: "On the LAX to MEL return flight, the crew were very unfriendly and only did the bare minimum, and basically just asked 'chicken or fish" and "what beverage do you want", then almost threw the food and drinks at the passengers. The obviously don't enjoy their job very much."
Pros: "My seat and space was good. The plane boarded on time and left on time."
Cons: "The stewardess Susan Schultz was rude at the end of the flight."
Pros: "Very couteous and helpful at gate"
Cons: "Delayed two hours which caused many travel problems"
Pros: "Seats are too narrow. Passenger next to me was so big he was sitting on my seat."
Cons: "Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "Everything ran on time and the staff was very friendly."
Pros: "TSA check in was so fast and easy. United terminal TSA was so well organized that we got through very quickly. Also checking bags took just a few minutes."
Cons: "I had a ver good experience"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Made up time in air. Decent snacks. Professional although not seemingly happy flight attendants."
Cons: "Delayed take off. Sat on tarmac. The outgoing flight had free entertainment via the united app but the return flight required payment for the same fare class and same duration. Ran out of snacks for purchase."
Pros: "When i initially bought my round trip tickets. I chose the seating assignments for my boyfriend and i. When i got to PBI to check in, computer showed we did not have seats. When i questioned the ticket agent, she replied, "it didn't matter when you purchased tickets and it doesn't matter if you chose your seats, you can be bumped at any time". ..so after everyone boarded, then turns out my bf and i can't sit together, we ended up 5 rows from eachother, and we both have anxiety from flying. I am very disappointed with United Airlines, and will do my best not to book with them again. NOT THE FRIENDLY SKIES."
Pros: "The steward was very helpful, when we were stuck on tarmac for thirty minutes, she helped with my next flight showing me how to reach next gate in time to board."
Cons: "Stuffed into seats. The three seats where there is only room for two is absolutely terrible. Average people have shoulders not of a nine year old. The middle seat is ridiculous."
Pros: "I made it to the destination on time."
Cons: "Small seats, I'm not big, just tall. You have to pay extra for everything except for non-alcoholic beverages. Crews get by doing their basic job. Pretty sure they are not even required to smile. I fly a lot and know this is just the way it is with most US continental airlines. They all suck and should take notes from any international airline."
Pros: "Pretty basic but no complaints"
Cons: "Basic but no complaints. Why don't you have music and more movie selection of recent movies ...?"
Cons: "Had computer problems. All flights shut down. Will never fly United again"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hrs without reason."
Cons: "Never got there canceled for weather."
Pros: "On time, pleasant and helpful staff."
Pros: "The Dreamliner is a very nice plane to fly on. Crew was friendly overall. Food was average. Entertainment was good. Blankets were too thin for a 14+ hour flight. I would fly this particular flight again though. Price was the best when I booked it."
Pros: "The crew and the gate was great. The pilot was amazing. This was my first flight since 1998 and I had gforce fear for take off and expecially landing but this landing was so smooth I wasn't scared."
Cons: "I didn't like that you had to pay to watch the monitor and the seating was tight."
Pros: "Flight from Calgary to Chicago was excellent!"
Pros: "Once I finally got my flight got it seemed short and sweet"
Pros: "We took off 4 hrs late because of a brake issue. But we did make it. They didn't cancel."
Cons: "No entertainment provided"
Pros: "The price was excellent considering it was a last minute purchase"
Cons: "There could be courtesy boarding for military members."
Pros: "Didn't have to pay for in-flight entertainment. Plane boarding and exiting was smooth. No delays. Plenty of overhead baggage space."
Cons: "Stuff was not all that pleasant, seemed irritated at everyone, seats promote terrible posture, especially for anyone over 5' 7" it seems."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Food was ok; need to anticipate the more popular choices so there's enough to go around."
Cons: "New Dreamliner has added more business seats resulting in loss of storage space as well as space for your feet when fully reclined."
Pros: "They definitely had more viewing choices in their entertainment than anyone could watch."
Cons: "The two big complaints are the food which was quite pathetic for a 14 hour flight - half of a cold sandwich and one cookie!!! Really?? They need to fly their competition and see how it should be done! The biggest complaint of all is their slight of hand baggage charges. If they're going to partner with another airline, they need some communication and agreement about pricing and allowances. Even though we are United Club members and credit card holders, we were charged nearly $400 to bring our luggage home, after paying just $30., yes, thirty, on Air New Zealand to take two extra bags! United's own overseas policy allows two bags, but they charged us anyway on return because we came on an airline that only allows one even though we paid ANZ to bring extra. Extremely illogical."
Cons: "Wifi didn't work"
Cons: "So, late, rude flight attendants."
Cons: "Seating is just cramped!"
Cons: "There was a grumpy mail air host. Vegetarian option was offered to everyone and hence none left for reminder of journey"
Cons: "Massive delays on both flights out of O'Hare... No leg room...."
Pros: "We had no delays this time and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "While we arrived on time, we all waited 40 minutes to get our checked luggage at the end of the flight. United is not my first choice in airlines: they give the impression that they're giving the bare minimum and not really trying to make a good experience for the customer."
Pros: "Food was ok reclining seats worked not much else."
Cons: "The reclining seats only work if you are shorter than 187cm I'm taller and so I had to bend my knees as there is nowhere else for your legs to go! The Chardonnay was warm - when served with tasty smoked salmon turned me off. The pillow was a $2 one lumpy and next to useless it's too big for the room you have. My entertainment system was reset three times and it still didn't work properly - no sound and no ability to watch movies that were not child rated. Stewards have to learn to be quiet as some of us are trying to sleep on a 15 hour flight and aren't interested in their laughs and jokes as we are travelling business first because we have to go to work when we get there!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants gave stellar service, especially the ones from Hawaii !!! I wasn't feeling very well and they noticed and checked up on me and made sure I was hydrated and got something to make me feel better. (I was so grateful to have a mom~type take care of me, on a long flight.) Thank You!!!"
Cons: "The lack of space - in the isles AND in between the seats in front of us. Anytime the person in front of me wanted to recline their seat, it made it hard for me to even get out and go to the bathroom. That was not pleasant."
Cons: "delayed for 4hrs missed my transfer sleeping in SFO and my suitcase is in DFW. been traveling for 16hrs or so today fly out in another 6hrs. no food it's all closed. just a wonderful travel experience. sigh."
Pros: "To say, its been over 20 years since I've flown, everything was just fine."
