Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The sanitizing of the aircraft was beyond expectations. The personal wipes were a plus so we could clean the areas around our seats to our satisfaction. The individual snack bags are a great idea to minimize handling. The boarding rear to front should have been in place years ago and the deplaning was about normal front to rear with distancing."

Cons: "can't think of anything"

Pros: "Crew and being able to watch movies."
Cons: "Cost of flight"
Pros: "They say us together (we had seats apart -- even though it stated our children are 4 & 1). They gave them wings and each an extra little snack. I felt they were supportive of us."
Cons: "Paying to check our bags!! We were forced to... too much stuff traveling with kids. It sucked to have to pay $50 when Alaska airlines saw we were struggling, they checked our carry one for free to ease our time in the airport!"

Cons: "Very cramped plane with no wifi/ movie options."
Pros: "Flight crew from Geneva was nice"
Cons: "The pilot held the Geneva flight for 35 minutes for late arriving inbound passengers. This helped them but hurt far more passengers connecting in Washington DC. We missed our flight and waited in standby mode all evening for a Denver flight."
Cons: "There’s non food!"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment."
Pros: "Crew on the plane was awesome. There was so much food coming through if you were starving that solved the problem. Entertaininment was great."
Cons: "The united airlines attendant was adamant we get in line to board like cattle. He was very demanding and was on a power trip. When we got on board all this hustle to get people on we ended up sitting on the plane as the airline had misplaced individuals seats"
Pros: "We seemed to fly faster to make up time"
Cons: "The seats are jokingly small and very uncomfortable. The boarding space was also small so the lines became very unorganized"
Cons: "Never will fly united again."
Pros: "Nothing at all!!! That should really tell you something!"
Cons: "The staff were rude, abrasive, ignored several passengers that were trying to get her attention before take off as 2 overhead bins were wide open and full to the brim. She of course was too busy playing on her cell phone in the back of the plane and ignored/silenced the passenger call button. They were so loud when people were sleeping, yelling ‘trash please’ every 5 minutes, we are not stupid, we can see what you are doing and if we have trash, we will give it to you - so please STOP disturbing my peace and let me bloody sleep!!!! I was never offered any food or drink during the entire flight, not even when I was awake - other airline attendants are more observant and come back and ask us when we are awake if we would like anything to eat or drink. So essentially that was 7 hours with nothing after having paid a little over $700 for what was seemingly the WORST transatlantic flight I’ve ever taken. I travel back and forth often, because I’m a dual national, but I will stick to BA or Virgin Atlantic - the planes and service are far superior to this pile of turd that goes by the name of United. There were no charging facilities (power outlet or USB port) and the TVs had such horrendous resolution that you would get a headache from having to squint at the screen."
Pros: "Relaxed flight- no issues with boarding. Very close gate transfer"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 hours & little done to compensate travelers. No in-seat entertainment on a 2.5+ hour flight. I expect this from a budget airline, not United."
Cons: "Very crowded. Seat in the back near toilet has much traffic and sitting on the aisle- much jostling. No entertainment unless you brought your own device."
Pros: "Flight was on time both leaving and arriving"
Cons: "The individual, Inited WiFi entertainment accessed via the Inited app did not work. I have been on several long distance Inited flights, and it never has. Error messages include “service is not available st this time” and “unable to connect to server - wait a few minutes and refresh browser.” Since in seat video is very limited, this can make for a long flight."
Pros: "The space on the plane, we left on timeand arrived early and I was able to sit by myself."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses spoke very harshly to me. I felt very embarrassed and offended."
Cons: "The Basic Economy baggage policy is ridiculous. Charge me what the ticket costs upfront."
Cons: "For a long flight, it's inexcusable to have no wifi working for both my flights. I'm very dissapointed as this was very uncomfortable to fly internationally. While they did play a movie on the communal screen, was hard to see from my seat. Would of much rather paid more to fly with a nicer service"
Pros: "serice agents at the airport were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "flight was changed to go thru atlanta. the connecting flight was delayed 3.5 hrs making its departure at 1:51AM. ugh."
Pros: "The courteous agent at the gate"
Cons: "Not being able to get a flight over 20 hours later!"
Pros: "Helpfully and we'll guided"
Pros: "No carry on fee .. nice staff .. on time!"
Pros: "Liked that we landed safely and I was treated like a human being not just a seat but the accommodation s were a little under what I expected"
Pros: "My flight from MIA to DIA was delayed two hours due to not having a crew. Not sure how that happened, but it was very disorganized. Crew issues happen, but what happened with entertainment? Three days earlier when flying to MIA, my United app had a great, large movie selection, so I picked one movie to watch and thought I would save the movie I really wanted to watch for my return flight. However, my return/very delayed flight had two movie options. It's the united app, why did one day have 50 movies and the second flight have two?? Shouldnt it be the same across the board? My best friends wedding and Night at the Museum 3 are not good options of entertainment."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Check in at the airport with United was terrible. The United agent on duty (Sandra Mcelroy) was rude, slow to process us, extremely inattentive. She either didn't know how to or was unwilling to verify our infant in arms' ticket, check our baggage, or receive a cash payment for our checked bags after she sent us to the kiosk for a third time. She never greeted us and only addressed us when absolutely necessary but had plenty of time to talk with her coworkers. It took nearly an hour for her to process our check in. She actually made another customer cry."
Pros: "Rud staff"
Pros: "Crew- very efficient on the ground andon the air"
Cons: "Inner flights no entertainment. Maybe dhould go wifi like LH"
Pros: "Crew was nice just snacks flight was turbulent no one fault"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Pros: "I think your agents on up did well handling rebooking and upset people. I was told I would miss my flight first thing this morning but the agent was able to get me on and I arrived in CR only 1. Hour late. Thank you for the great service. It has to be hard picking up the pieces after the hurricane."
Pros: "Brand new plane!"
Pros: "Before boarding the attention was very good"
Cons: "After boarding the seats were broken, there was no entertainment and the food was next to nothing"
Pros: "The flight was smooth with a perfect landing, so I was happy with the pilot."
Cons: "The United Airline Flight Attendants who were French were rude. The pilot announced that several of them were retiring after working for 50 years. I think they stayed in their jobs too long because they were very abrupt when I asked for a USA custom form instead of a French form."
Cons: "We boarded and waited then was told we would wait more for people on a late flight then something wrong was found on the flight. After over an hour we were able to get off. Then we were told about 20 minutes later to get back on. No one can see the future. What i did like is that you let us get off the plane for a while before our 3 hour destination. Wish that would have happened sooner. This. Was on the flight from Boston to Salt Lake"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Coach seats only recline an inch at best Knees were up against the seat in front, no room to move. Seats were as hard as rocks Boarding group 5 has no luggage space $25 for checked bags seems a bit much for the first bag. Requires app to see anything."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and very friendly"
Cons: "The seats were narrow and the cushions felt like and old cushion on a wood board."
Pros: "At our origin the flight was delayed and they were gratious enough to switch us to united so we didn't miss our connection. Delta hooked us up! Tight connection in Atlanta, but the flight to Seattle was awesome."
Cons: "The United Terminal at Newark is hideous and United should be ashamed to be associated with this poor quality. The airport is a construction zone at best. The aircraft is tiny, cramped and inadequate."
Pros: "Everything was easy and smooth I love it and they are very nice people"
Cons: "Leg space Terrible"
Cons: "Fly being delayed for more than 6 hours"
Pros: "i was moved from my flight the day earlier to this one because i was sick. thank you! flying 6 hours while sick is the WORST. and i had a window seat!"
Pros: "Staff was professional and friendly flight was smooth and nice."
Cons: "Delta airline always delayed. My flight was delayed 3 hours then cancelled twice. they don't give you anything beside rescheduling your flight. Sucks. I hope to god I never have to deal with them again!!"
Cons: "on the way there we had TV. On the way back we had to take a different route (which added more time for the trip)and we did have a TV on the head rest or even movie showing. Also one snack that has three crackers isn't worth handing out. It would be nice to be able to enjoy the snack."
