Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fly attendants have no knowledge of hospitality. They arguing with customers and refusing to assist, blaming on company policies. My friends were assigned seats next to a toilet.

Pros: "Friendly staffs and on time flights"
Pros: "CVG isn't a huge airport, but it has a good amount of things to keep you entertained/well fed."

Pros: "I lost the flight To hartford and I pay 4 the hotel"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Paid $30 for wifi and it never worked. Would like a refund"
Pros: "Food was actually ok and the crew tried to remain upbeat despite all the challenges we encountered."
Cons: "where do I start....seats are incredibly close together and once the passenger reclines their seat, it is actually painful. I don't consider myself overly tall or large at 5'10" and 190 pounds, yet I did not have circulation in my legs for nearly the entire flight. The pilot indicated that flight would be only 9 1/2 hours and ended up being 14.5 hours due to a maintenance issue that required us to make a stop in Anchorage. Pilot said it would only take 30-40 minutes to repair (supplemental oxygen bottle was apparently empty) and after 3 1/2hrs I think we were finally airborne, only to be delayed an additional 45 minutes or so upon landing because our gate was occupied by another plane. So what, they can't find another gate to use? The whole flight there was also delayed for an unexpected stop in Anchorage to get more fuel for the flight. Did they not complete proper flight planning? I'm a pilot and I know you can check winds aloft and plan your route with ample fuel for emergencies. So did this pilot not properly plan for the flight? I can go on and on about why I won't be flying with Delta for a long long time....so the 5,000 air miles they gave me as a courtesy for putting me through so much pain...well those extra miles are useless to me. How about refunding me the cost of my horrible flight?"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Flight attendant late arriving to his job causing a 30 minute delay in boarding. Desk staff at airport seemed more interested in their own conversations than helping passengers . Fight attendants seemed uninterested in their jobs and lacked warmth. 45 minutes late arriving in Kansas City no announcements from captain"
Pros: "The flight trip coming to an end."
Cons: "Boarding is inefficient. Attendants were friendly but not attentive. The entertainment system was malfunctioning. This was not a pleasant experience."
Cons: "There delay"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "The wifi did not work, my seatbelt was literally broken/unattached, they had no coffee. This may seem minor to some but when you are at the airport at 4 a.m with a child you don't expect all yhese things to happen."
Pros: "on time meet all my expectations"
Cons: "I believe it is time for WI-FI to be complimentary in flights. It is far too expensive and feels like price gaugiMh."
Cons: "Not enough entertainment choices"
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."
Pros: "The entertainment was great!"
Cons: "I was so uncomfortable in my seat."
Pros: "Liked the plane and the leg room. Had to switch itenary due to weather and the gate agent did a great job."
Cons: "Counter at Asheville, point of origin for the flight, was unattended at recommended arrival time. Attendant, when he finally appeared, seemed, to this traveler at least, unengaged, abrupt, even rude, certainly not as welcoming and helpful ad other UA counter attendants at busier airports and at more demanding times. The word lazy comes to mind. The same individual handled the gate. His demeanor there was similar. If it is UA policy to leave counters unattended, an explanation should be posted; if present policy requires one individual to handle counter and gate duties, perhaps more help is needed. This experience, all the more frustrating when a passenger ruses early so as to comply with recommended arrival and boarding times, combined with the fact that the incoming flight significantly delayed AVL to Washington depart setting the tone for a mostly mediocre experience crowned by a painful trek from terminal A to terminal C to catch the connection to PVD. Not a best effort by UA. Outstanding flight and cabin crews saved the day."
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Cons: "Plane wasn’t well maintained. Limited food and entertainment."
Pros: "On time departure and landed a little early"
Cons: "Seats should recline more More food options"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful with large package"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."
Pros: "The crew was great. The seats, though cramped, were nice to have electronic device holders instead of built in screens."
Cons: "The flight was 9 hours and they didn't provide any meals. That's ridiculous. When I fly with any other airline for over 7 hours I've always gotten 1 meal, if not 2. The food for purchase however, was very good. But they should not expect you to pay."
Cons: "The flight was booked through Jetfly and I tried to change the date. I ended up losing the entire ticket. No flight, no money. I talked to Jetfly at least 8 times and they kept confusing things, delaying things, and were not very helpful which caused me to miss any available flights."
Pros: "They did allow myself and children to board earlier 5/4."
Cons: "Baggage took forever. . Caused a lot of confusion if at right claim carousel. Over 30min & counting...."
Cons: "Delayed for so long! 5 hrs"
Cons: "Flight delayed appropriately due to weather but staff at United gave out misinformation and apparently not able to keep apace with information some of us passengers finally accessed online from United. The Asheville airport is small and the only restaurant closed - so for 4 hours we were left with no certainty, no food, and incorrect answers. Perhaps it is because airport is small, or the particular staff people were unable to focus. Flight itself was great."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid entertainment"
Pros: "Despite a slight delay in take off the flight landed on time; crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Couldn't get a seat assignment until I arrived at the gate; boarding was slow and a little disorganized; seats are small"
Pros: "Flight crew did everything to make sure you were comfortable.on both legs of my flight, I think United airlines is doing a decent job. I had no issues or delays"
Cons: "The seats are just to close together"
Pros: "The staff & attendants were friendly & professional. The new United terminal is a very pleasant experience"
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and they did not notify us"
Cons: "That i sat grounded for an extra 45min over Fuel discrepancy."
Pros: "Delayed to Albany 2 hrs, no compensation, not even a beer!"
Pros: "The seats were soft. The convenience of flying out of Asheville was great."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes waiting. When the captain spoke, no one on the plane could understand a word he said due to the poor speakers, his accent?, and he spoke too fast. I nearly missed my connection in Chicago."
Pros: "I liked kayak, recommended by a friend and my new booking application. Thank you."
Cons: "I didn't arrange for travel or fly this flight. My email was entered by someone else by mistake."
Cons: "I think Kayak wasn't clear that Lufhansa and United are partners....all that Kayak put on my ticket was United. When I went to JFK I could not find United international and the airport info people said it's Lufhatnasa and then when I went to Schipol airport and went to Lufhtansa they said there is a United international check in. Kayak cost me a lot of walking and delays because they were not clear on what airline out of which airport."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
Pros: "Boarding procedure and crew were excellent!"
Cons: "Zero regard for customer service. I will never fly United Airlines again, I may never use Kayak again either. This was the worst travel experience of my entire life."
Pros: "Everything was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "In order to upgrade to economy plus or first class, it would have cost more than my round trip flight. Flight left late and arrived late."
Pros: "I missed my flight with Alligent due to an overturned tractor trailer and they couldn't do anything to help me (I'll never fly with them again) and I had to book a last minute flight with United, very easy just pricy due to last minute. Thanks!"
Pros: "Nothing to like. 6:00pm flight delayed and kept rescheduling takeoff. Boarded plane about midnight and after ninety plus minutes we were made to deplane because current crew was over their allotted airtime. Kept on plane awaiting a new crew but they couldn't get them so flight cancelled. Attendants told us we would be compensated for cancellation. A big airline like united should have a better grasp on scheduling flight crews and stand bys available instead of putting us through this hell. No hotels available so we all had to stay overnight in uncomfortable chairs with many sleeping on floors. I felt bad for myself as a 69 ur old woman with some health issues but felt even worse for the parents flying with little toddlers who just wanted to go home. The day of my flight Denver had 8" of snow that stopped by 9am yet I couldn't get a flight out till the following evening. Psp to Denver to Newark should have taken six hours but took me over 38 hrs of travel time. Denver should be used to snow and 8" shouldn't cause such extreme disruption at that airport. And united needs to better coordinate its flight schedules and working crews. I will be contacting customer service regarding compensation as cancelled flight was due to company musmagent. Finally it would have been nice if united opened its club to the travelers who couldn't get hotels. Sitting in a comfortable place would have been so much better especially to the elderly and small children traveling. Thank you"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Kept us all up to date all the time."
Pros: "She was very friendly and on task."
Cons: "Nothing. She was great."
Pros: "Although the flight was cancelled due to the hurricane i got my money back."
Pros: "The crew was nice to our one year old. And because it wasn't a full flight we were able to give him a seat which saved us!"
Cons: "We're healthy vegans and the snacks aren't friendly for us at all. We brought our own but to have options would have been nice."
Cons: "The plane was so cold that my feet literally went numb. I had to run through O'Hare to get to my next flight."
Pros: "It was quick and the person I sat next was pretty cool."
Cons: "The flight personnel had bad attitudes. The seating was cramped and the wifi was expensive"
Pros: "Mostly I like that crew is nice, aircraft is big, and from EWR direcect flight to Delhi."
Cons: "1) flight from Bos to EWR is never on time and connection time is very tight. On day before my uncle missed the same flight because flight Boston got cancelled. 2) business class seats are not comfortable."
Pros: "I experienced absolutely no problems before/during after my flight. Everything went smoothly. I wish every flight ran as smoothly as the two flights I took that day."
Cons: "No in flight movie!!!"

Cons: "Nice flight attendants"
Pros: "Lousy pretzels. We had no choice in a snack!"
Cons: "Seats are for skinny high school kids who are only 5'2"."
Cons: "No TV"
Cons: "The turbulence"
Cons: "Recently United decided to cancel all of their flights to Denver due to an April snow storm. United was the only company that chose to cancel rather than delay flights. Our flight was cancelled 24 hrs before any snow fell. Their solution was to offer us another flight over 72 hrs out. After spending 6 hrs on the phone with this company (not exaggerating) I feel entitled to say that this company holds zero accountability or concern for their customers. We had to spend an additional $500 to get to our destination last minute through JetBlue."
