Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating"
Cons: "More seating space"
Pros: "efficient, punctual"
Cons: "Better food pool"
Pros: "The Free glass of wine was a very nice surprise."
Pros: "The entire trip, other than the delay in Dallas was easy & uneventful. There was enough time between flights to allow going through transport & security to the next gate. Food & service was great! Awesome teams on Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Nothing, really. The ticket prices were great for travel from southern United States to Central Europe!"
Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."
Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"
Pros: "United crew were incredibly kind and accommodating. We had 2 lap babies and a 3 year old. They took our carry-on suitcases and checked them through to our destination without charge -- freeing up valuable hands in the process. They also arranged seats to make sure there were enough air masks for us and our 2 lap children. Our 3 year old had his own seat. In doing so, they moved me and 2 others so that my wife and I were in adjacent rows and there was an empty seat next to each of us (where our babies ended up sleeping). They were very kind and helped us in every way. Overall this was the best experience I've ever had on a flight, period."
Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Pros: "The flight went okay. Boarding was very good."
Cons: "We were delayed because the air conditioning was having problems. This was the fifth flight out of seven that had some kind of delay."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was abominable. Service was someone just doing their job"
Pros: "Quick direct service with no connections."
Cons: "Seated in 8C on 737-900. Could not strrtch legs as blocked door to toilet in front of my seat. Had one passenger exit the toilet and fall in my lap."
Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."
Pros: "On time!"
Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."
Pros: "The crew was fun, courteous, and very helpful. The complimentary refreshments were slightly better than those offered by most airlines."
Cons: "Our flight ended up being an hour delayed. The cabin during the flight was extremely cold, and the attendants finally gave my wife a blanket which was for first-class only because she was miserable. Also, the in-flight entertainment through their wi-if onboard was down for “maintenance” the entire trip."
Pros: "Punctual flight and not filled to last seat. Excellent amber beer.option, no extra charge for beer or wine. Crew members were friendly and eager to please. They were happy to supply extra snacks and coffee or water between regular service. Seat reservations were properly done (unlike a flight in June on Etihad)."
Cons: "In boarding, putting groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line works poorly. Location of electric outlets needs better (i.e. some) documentation; had to ask crew. The heat fluctuated between too warm and too cold; had to put on and take off a fleece every 10-15 minutes. Chicken option for dinner rated spicy, so had to opt for pasta. No Asian options on flight from Japan; sad. So-so movie selection, controlling screen not very easy, screen often too dark. The list of movies in the United Magazine was incomplete and inaccurate. The size limits on carry-on bags and personal items was smaller than other airlines, unnecessarily so for the latter given the size of the space under the seat in front. United is inconveniencing customers without any justification."
Pros: "Convience o flying from tvc instead of driving to grr or det"
Cons: "My wife and I had to sit separately"
Cons: "The flight had delayed almost 3 hours"
Cons: "Cancellation without compensation or care got customer"
Cons: "The business class seats are worn and the entertainment options are very limited compared to Delta."
Cons: "Leg I was only offered economy. Not plus"
Pros: "I booked the basic economy and I was pleased that I had a row to myself. I was nervous it was going to be a tight flight because of the smaller plane. Also I enjoyed the onboard movies available on our personal devices."
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Cons: "United flights are always delayed!"
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Pros: "Nothing delay"
Cons: "Mahor delay and tarmac issue refund immideate"
Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and patient working to reroute so many people."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2.5 hours. Crew were really helpful and trying to assist so many who needed to get where they were going. Honestly it wasn't anyone's fault just what happens sometimes."
Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "It was delayed by 2.5 hrs and I ended up rebooking to another flight."
Pros: "The crew were rude, The food was inedible, the planes were delayed with no communication. To top it off my bags came 2 days after my arrival, they were clueless as to where it was, when I'd get it and didn't seem to care. When I finally got my suitcase It was so vandalised it cut my hand... Legs had ever been snapped off. I've been flying frequently for 10 years and this was the worst experience I've ever had."
Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"
Pros: "United, as always, was professional and efficient. Once I was able to find the information from price line for my check in, everything went smoothly. I was impressed that the airline sent an email suggesting a change of itinerary due to weather in Chicago, and waived change fees to facilitate this. I got home without cancelled or delayed flights."
Cons: "The kayak to price line to united interface led to communication breakdown. I received no notice to check in for my departing flight, and had to dig through several messages and 2 websites to find the appropriate confirmation number. It should be clearer who you are actually purchasing from, and there should be better fail-safes in place to prevent loss of information"
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "2 hour delay and missing my connection"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "There was a gentleman that was upset because his seat had been switched around and he called the flight attendants incompetent. He stood by my seat as he waited for the issue to be resolved, that made me feel really uncomfortable."
Cons: "We got moved from United to American Airlines because United overbooked out first flight. We finally landed in SLC 8 hours later than we were supposed to only to be told that they had left out luggage in Chicago. It is now a week later and I still don't have my luggage! This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had!"
Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The only flight leaving Eugene that would get me to Dallas in time for an urgent meeting left at 5:25 am. The crew identified something in inspection that gave them a little concern, so they called maintenance to come and check it out to ensure we were safe to fly (which I very much appreciate). The issue I have is that over an hour passed (after the flight was supposed to leave), with them giving periodic updates that they had called maintenance and were waiting for them. Finally I asked the people at the counter, who were visibly embarrassed, where maintenance was coming from (this is an airport - shouldn't they have it onsite), and they conceded that maintenance was at the airport, but they had no idea where they were. This delay resulted in me missing my connection in Denver, which caused me to miss the meeting and the whole reason I was flying back to Dallas a day early for. I essentially paid over $400 for an extra ticket (I had to not use my one on Friday - because it was just cheaper to buy a separate one way ticket). I will never fly United again."
Pros: "Every moment was great. We arrived early to LA and we had great service. Best part was LAX and their new terminal for customs. Perfect and beautiful!"
Cons: "Horrible snacks on plane. Pretzels with ranch flavor. Yuck"
