Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Pros: "The gate crew were very responsive and told us accurate estimates about the delayed departure time. They even distributed snacks for us."
Cons: "The flight crew was subpar. We had been delayed by 2 hours and they did nothing to assuage anyone’s frustrations. Service was minimal and lacklustre.

Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No leg space whatsoever. I'm 6'8 and am being told to keep my legs in while it is near impossible or I'm eating my legs. I became so uncomfortable I became nauseous. Anyone above 6'4 is having a rough flight."

Cons: "No assistance in helping us get to our destination"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hr"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."
Pros: "I called ahead to get a seat assigned. I suffer from minor claustrophobia and the lady at the call center was kind enough to seat me somewhere spacious."
Cons: "Snacks could be better. Although the biscoff cookies are excellent and the crew was on their game making sure we had our snacks. I wish that for a flight as long as NY to MIA, they would offer more of a meal."

Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."
Cons: "Muy mal servicio, no dieron ni agua solo galletas vencidas ni una bebida, muy mala experiencia no recomiendo viajar en UNITED"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly."
Cons: "WiFiwas not functioning. They ran out of food. Boarding was delayed."
Pros: "They let me know they couldn't get it together enough to get a plane in an almost timely manner. Once they did I couldn't take advantage of the alternatives without risking missing out all together"
Cons: "The 4 plus hour delay that meant a 3 plus hour layover because of the missed connection. Requesting an agreement to just make the new connection because of their non-weather related delay."

Cons: "Cramped, not enough room for carry-ons"
Pros: "Great service in business class, as always."
Cons: "Weather system on the way down, but the pilot and first officer were tops"
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: "Overall I am so disappointed"
Cons: "Deleyed flight in Huston, my baggage’s stayed behind"
Pros: "The flight is on time.... the food is good.... the service is excellent...."

Pros: "Is goood"
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Air lines can't keep a schedule."
Pros: "Crew was great. Very patient with a difficult situation."
Cons: "Issue with something in the bathroom. I was on the plane watching them decide what to do for 20 minutes or more. Then I had to de-plane (just my row) while they cleaned. Then they decided it was too wet. Everyone deplaned. They changed planes and we didn't leave for hours. Seems like they could have found the issue and changed planes before we boarded."
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: "The space in my seat feels bigger than other airlines"

Pros: "Helpfully and we'll guided"
Pros: "everything was good"
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"
Cons: "Flight was originally for 2:58pm. When I got to the airport it was delayed until 4:15pm. This wasn't ideal but I would still make my connecting flight in EWR at 6:20. I got to my gate to find a sign saying "most on time arrivals in our history" followed by my flight now delayed until 5:00pm. It was once again delayed into 5:20pm and so I had to be transferred to an American flight or else I would not have left the day scheduled."
Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"
Pros: "I realy enjoy the flight"
Cons: "Wifi is wrong"
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: "leg room was not too bad"
Cons: "I needed to ask questions about my flights because of delays and not a single person acted professional at the gates, quite rude responses. On each of my 3 plane changes there was only one attendant actually smiled. Another read from a sheet of paper like she didn't know what to say. Two others never dmiled or said you're welcome after I thanked them. Im used to the friendly staff on Southwest. They are great!"
Cons: "Flight before delayed 5 hours. Bad snack, expressive food"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
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: "Flight was not longer."
Cons: "No free entertainment. Didn't give out headphones until an hour into the flight. Tight seating. No meal service."
Pros: "Got here"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
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"
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."
Cons: "our flight was a little delayed, the rest was wonderful"
