We highly recommend this airlines! We were very impressed and pleased from beginning to end!"

Pros: "Clean, new plane, with great entertainment systems and choices."
Cons: "How in the hell this day in age do you not have Vegan food options on a plane serving Asian countries?! How dose none of the flight crew not understand the words "No Meat"?"

Cons: "Korean Air refused to provide accommodation for my 19 hours layover even I had two flights with Korean Air. The reason provided was simple: "We don't have you on the list". The fact that it's 8 pm and had known nothing about South Korea meant nothing."

Cons: "Just the more than one hour departure delay. Reason given was that they were still waiting for passengers on a connect connecting flight. Then what was unusual was a manual head count of passengers which was out of the ordinary in this high tech world of modern air transportation"

Cons: "Rude flight attendant! She opened the food tray on my lap and instead of informing me to put my seat upright, she did it for me as though I was a child."

Pros: "The crew was nice and organized, polite, professionals, the airplan was clean. flight was on time too."
Cons: "The food did not include varieties, may be is good for korean people but not good for others, the dishes were plastics and foils which are not good for human consumption after being heated. I missed my flight from seoul to saigon because there was two flights with similar time, one with korea and the other with vietnam air, both with similar time but both are with different concourses , then , the ticket did not indicate the gate number , then the airport information operator directed me to the wrong gate resulting in missing my flight to saigon and being subject to penalties which all are not my mistakes. Please fix your system"

Pros: "There was enough leg space even though we were couch and the flight attendants were nice. They also fed us regularly and gave out snacks and drinks so this made the 15 hours plane ride more pleasant."
Cons: "It was HOT. We and other passengers told the flight attendants about the heat but nothing really changed. The air circulation was poor and people were sweating on the plane. Because of this, it was stale and smelly. I'm not sure why the circulation on their plane was so poor but it really made the flight more difficult than it should have been."

Pros: "Everything works fine except the language that has been used to communicate between the passengers and the staffs."

Cons: "The food isn't that great. The landing isn't as good as Id like and i experience more turbulence flying with korean air than with air china."

Pros: "Courteous and attentive service. Generous with extras (e.g. wine, meals). The entertainment options (movies, TV, music) made the 13 hour flight pass quickly. I was even able to catch a few hours' of sleep thanks to the ample leg room and a seat that reclines more than 15 degrees. Finally, the fellow passengers (mostly Korean) were quiet and polite, which made the flight all the more delightful. This is definitely my goto choice for trips to Southeast Asia."

Pros: "Crew was really kind and food was delicious !!"
Cons: "We were so satisfied with services"

Pros: "They changed my seat twice to accommodate mother's with children. Lost my window seat. Told me no more room for carry on bag. Was my only bag cause doesn't want to go to baggage claim. Cost me extra 45 mins claiming my bag."

Cons: "WiFiwas not functioning. They ran out of food. Boarding was delayed."

Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."

Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."

Cons: "Cramped, not enough room for carry-ons"

Pros: "crew was apologetic"
Cons: "no movie service, no wifi. this is the 3rd time this has happened to me on an international flight to China on United. so bad. every other airline has it all together"

Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Entertainment system Completely broken for full duration of flight. Individual screen also broken as well as seat Broken 19C"

Pros: "- Crew was attentive."
Cons: "- Personal device entertainment was intermittently functional, had to use the poor onboard display for entertainment. - Internet access was $39.99 for the length of the trip, that price is ridiculous."

Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."

Pros: "On time arrival in China. Good entertainment options for my iPad, better than seat back display"
Cons: "The usual lack of attentiveness by United Flight crew"

Pros: "The flight is on time.... the food is good.... the service is excellent...."
Cons: "Lack of snacks..."

Pros: "Flight left and landed on time. In flight entertainment worked."

Cons: "WiFi for $39.99, used to be $19.99 before."

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Slightly delayed for slow baggage handling at gate"

Cons: "Bumped from two flights due to weather and delayed due to pilots coming in late"

Cons: "Air lines can't keep a schedule."

Pros: "The plane arrived safely in Newark"
Cons: "The plane left 7 hours late - for a 45 min flight. I got on another flight (only becuase I sought a solution to arri9ving 7 hrs late) but still arrived several hours after my determined arrival time. No compenatio or apology."

Pros: "There was a problem at Newark airport on my way back. The united agent was terrific to successfully secure a different route for me so I could get back home. Many thanks,"

Cons: "5 hr delay"

Pros: "The space in my seat feels bigger than other airlines"
Cons: "I couldn't switch the internet that I bought to my phone from my computer without signing up. It would have been nice to put in my name and have it transfer"

Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Wheelchair service was so helpful for my mother."
Cons: "Over an hour mechanical delay at ALB. We barely made it to our connection. Pretty tense considering I was with an elderly confused mother who would not have dealt well with a delay from Newark to Denver."

Pros: "Fight was on time. Crew very pleasant. No complaints"

Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."

Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"

Pros: "Connecting flights in China need more of a layover I missed my connecting flight not happy it was a disaster going through immigration takes forever in Shanghai .."

Cons: "That i got stuck in China for 2 days"

Pros: "Went as expected"

Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like about this trip."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours due to a ground stop at the next airport. Upon finally boarding the plane for a second time, we sat at the Albany airport for abou 40 minutes. When arriving to the Newark airport, there was communication issues and no way for us to get to a terminal so we were stuck on that plane for 2 hours. While stuck on the plane my connecting flight got delayed twice then cancelled. Once finally in the airport, I waited an hour in line for customer service only to tell me they couldn't even put me up in a hotel because it was air traffic controls fault, even though NO other airline was down. They gave me a $10 food voucher, apparently that would fix everything. I had to put myself in a $130 hotel room and being a broke college student I wasn't expecting that. I will never fly united again, it was he worst experience I've ever had and one of the most stressful days. This airline is horrible."

Pros: "I liked getting a snack and drink. I guess all planes are crowded. I didn't have any carrying luggage so I didn't have to worry about overhead storage- which would have been a problem."

Pros: "Nothing good at all"

Pros: "Crew were friendly. Got us in early (efficent)."
Cons: "Boarding is a free-for-all. No ammenties (charged for tv, internet, and food)."

Pros: "The flight was cancelled three times. Understanding that can happen, it's the fact that United didn't do anything to make everyone relaxed about having the flight delayed. The crew and pilots were very understanding and relayed reasons for delay while ON the plane. The air on the plane was very cold."

Pros: "Did not realize that I was not confirmed. I was traveling for a medical emergency and needed to wait to be cleared."
Cons: "Plane was tiny and claustrophobic"

Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Seating is uncomfortable, everything costs money, takes a long time"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"

Pros: "Flight a lot easier then flight up to NY. Didn't have to ride with left over storm conditions. Smoother flight."

Pros: "The flight was delayed so they put me on a direct flight with an earlier arrival time..... So nice."

Pros: "United crews use to tell me you couldn't preboard with children but they must have changed that policy because they allowed it this time."
Cons: "They always ask a second time for the boarding pass after the first agent scans it. They should tell you to keep it out if they are going to review it a second time."

Pros: "The timely fashion that the process took to complete, traveling was good and easy that day!"

Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "The whole nightmare of flying on United worst travel ever. never again"

Pros: "Left on time - arrived on time"

Pros: "Zooooooommm"
Cons: "Where the asciago?"

Cons: "3 hour delay out of Albany. My flight was canceled out of Newark and had to wait about 23 hours for next flight. I wasn't offered hotel, food or lounge to accommodate such a lengthy delay. Airport's should be able to accommodate delayed passenger's with better entertainment and comfort."

Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice."

Cons: "Flight was needlessly delayed. No help given. Horrible."

Pros: "staff on airplane"
Cons: "staff at checkin counter"
