Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."
Cons: "The plane was extremely full. No chance of social distancing."
Cons: "Such a short flight, not a lot of time to pass out snacks or beverages. The attendant went right past me when passing out water."
Pros: "Good job"
Pros: "Friendly, quick and easy check in."
Cons: "All our chosen seats were disregarded the entire way from Munich back to Raleigh because the airline was switched to United. My family was separated on all flights, even though we chose seats over a month in advance."
Cons: "The airline should have reviewed who was delayed on their connection and wait at least 5-10 minutes to accommodate me for a delayed connection. We ended up at the gate for the final leg of my flight and the door closed 30 seconds prior. Very poor internal communications and lack of customer care."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times"
Pros: "On-time departure. Grouped boarding"
Cons: "Had to gate check bag, but I’ve flown this flight often enough to know that. Missed beverage service while dozing . Cart was just 2 rows past and never got a chance."
Pros: "The ease of boarding and plenty of room."
Cons: "Only that the man sitting next to me kept the light on. It was an early morning flight."
Pros: "Not a whole lot, the flight and comfort were fine. The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "There was NO entertainment on board unless you paid $7.99, including watching the progress of the flight from Montego Bay, Jamaica to Newark."
Pros: "Great left ok time..."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour because no gate was available! I missed my connection by 5 min. When I asked if they could do something (hold the plane etc) since I had a connection they said, “Sir everyone has a connecting flight!” Like I was asking them to move mountains. Point is, United doesn’t care about their costumers. I see them going out of business soon. They have terrible costumer service. I missed the holidays with my family and had to buy a new plane ticket on a different airline because they could not reschedule me on time!"
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "The leg room in the plane. I know airliners want to put as many people in a flight as possible but for tall people no leg room is bad."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Had a mechanical issue we were told didn't need fixed to fly the plane. Took 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete safety checklist so we could take off. We missed our connecting flight to Cancun."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed safely, and pretty much on time."
Cons: "Smallest cabin seats I’ve ever been in. Oversold plane. Bored, uninterested flight attendants. Free DirecTV for some passengers, $8 for others. Peanuts and water/coffee grudgingly served, but lots of enthusiasm for opening a United Credit Card. I will pay more for a different airline next time - just for normal sized seats."
Cons: "My flight was changed and I missed a very important meeting that I had to be at."
Pros: "Nothing. Flying has become an nightmare. I will avoid in the future. Late flights and miss connections seem the norm now in this dysfunctional industry."
Cons: "I don't like having to waste my valuable time in airports for days to make a short flight."
Cons: "United has new seats that have absolutely no leg room and are very uncomfortable. I will make sure never to fly United again. This was 3 hours of agony."
Pros: "We arrived on time and I had no problems ."
Cons: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "My wife and I arrived at airport in Tampa and tried to check our bags in and United ticket counter wasn't working properly. It was malfunctioning. A United agent helped my wife and I very professionally and got everything back to working like it was supposed to."
Cons: "The check in machine not working properly."
Pros: "My experience with Air Canada was all around pleasant. I would definitely fly with them again. Any negative aspect during my travels was due to their partner United Airlines."
Cons: "If flying within the States we used United Airlines; a partner of Air Canada. The flight itinerary changed numerous times before our departure, including two days before we left. The change added an additional layover, and put us at our destination nearly 6 hours later than out original booking. This meant we lost a decent portion of the first day of our honeymoon. However, we were forced to stay an extra day when our return flight was cancelled. After spending 8 hours in the airport we were informed that our Monday flight was cancelled, and the next available flight would not be until Wednesday! United Airlines let us down on the way to our destination and on our trip home. Air Canada was great, but I dread having to use their partner United Airlines."
Pros: "This was the first United flight I've been on in 10 years that was not full."
Cons: "There is no way to turn off the screens on the seat backs, so they continue flashing the same thing over and over. I counted 690 times between Houston and Vancouver."
Cons: "They switched my airline from ANA to United without notifying me."
Cons: "If you aren't going to turn on the air AT ALL for a 4.5 hour flight, at least don't lie to us and patronize us. After the SIXTH person asks you for air, don't continue to say, "Oh, are you really hot?" YES we were hot!! We were packed in like cattle with no air!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Nearly 2 hour delay and stuck on plane waiting. Wifi problems and movies wouldn't stream."
Cons: "Delayed getting on our way I think because they were late getting in and had to do all the plane checking. Captain said safety checks. Seat space felt tight and I am short."
Pros: "On time, good customer service."
Pros: "Missing my connection due a security in Newark the plan was 2 h delay"
Cons: "I would like to rate my flight HOME. United CANCELED my flight one hour prior to boarding. PISSED"

Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Pros: "We had nice flight even so the airplain was full."

Cons: "Luggage transfer"
Cons: "At the check in people were so rude giving me a lot of trouble with the baby food! Also it's a lot of charge for an extra bag"

Pros: "Nice crew and pleasant flight."
Cons: "Only offered water and no snack"
Cons: "I spent 8 hours in the Denver airport without any compensation from the airline. At least buy me lunch."
Pros: "Good crew"
Pros: "Good quick flight"
Pros: "getting there"
Cons: "getting there late"
Pros: "Not one thing."
Cons: "I chose to fly UA back from a trip to Fort Worth because your price was cheaper than the airline I normally use. Boy do I know why! You have the rudest staff I have ever encountered. My day started out at 6:30am with one of your staff members rudely telling me I had to check my bag, which met all of the dimension requirements you put in place, because two notches on the back side of the carry on did not allow it to completely slide into the display. This women waited until you were halfway through the security line to call you back and make you measure the suitcase. So then you had to walk back through a long line and find yourself even FURTHER back in the line to get through security. She was so unprofessional- not compassionate, unpleasant attitude, and was all about making sure as many people as possible had to pay the extra $25 for a checked bag. The person I flew with is a military wife and you would not honor the free checked bag because her husband was not on the trip and this policy was not included anywhere on her flight documents. Again, the "customer service" reps were rude to her about this and she had to pay the $25 to check her bag. You do not believe in offering quality customer service or ensuring that we have a pleasant experience, you want our money and look to us as an opportunity to make a dollar. Never again!!!"
Pros: "The crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Everything went very smoothly. No real complaints"
Pros: "Slightly more room, the person next to me was normal."
Cons: "Could not turn off screen in front of me? Didn't offer Dr. Pepper"
Pros: "Roomy for a small plane"
Cons: "Hard to get online, much smoother on connecting flight. Hated landing in SFO."
