Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "crew was amazing!!"
Pros: "Got me there"
Cons: "MAKE PEOPLE WEAR MADKS EVEN IF THEY ARE IN FIRST CLASS THE MASK HAS TO COVER THE NOSE!!!"
Pros: "While i normally fly AA i gave United a try & my flight to Austin was surprisingly comfortable & enjoyable. The trip back was another story. Seated between two very nice but 250lb people who spilled over into my seat. The Entertainment channel was best part of trip and that was uneven."
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable. Inedible food that I had to pay for was another frustration. We had a 45 min flight delay. At that point food should be gratis. A good opportunity to create loyalty was squandered. Complete lack of awareness about human essentials."
Cons: "I have one small computer bag and need to put my own feet under the seat in front. I should be able to not have my small bag where my feet NEED to be. My carryon is far less than what most have and this is for my own comfort."
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac for 35 minutes because our flight was “randomly” selected to wait because there was too much air traffic over Houston. Result: I missed my connection to my final destination. The airline promised that the other flights were alerted of the delay and that people would be there to assist. May departure gate was literally two gates away from my arrival gate in Houston. No one was there to help. No exceptions were made to get me on the flight, even as it was delayed at the gate for 15 minutes, meaning that they could have gotten me aboard. The whole experience made me very angry. After all this, I had to wait an additional two hours for the next flight."
Pros: "Was able to get an Economy Plus seat, which is nice - great legroom for an almost 6' tall person and power plug is very handy. Entertainment & screens on the 787 is very good. Regular distributions of water was very helpful since I wasn't able to fill up my bottle before getting on the flight."
Cons: "Not a great amount of food available, and one of the larger cabin crew members kept brushing my arm as she walked past, which didn't help me get any sleep."
Pros: "Great crew and friendly service. They are not too hard on customers and are professional."
Pros: "PRofessional, helpful, courteous staff. Before time arrivals"
Cons: "No entertainment at all. It was complicated to use the Wifi in the plane to watch the free videos / movies."
Pros: "Over all flight was good.."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed 4 hours ..I waited at the Austin Airport all day before boarding plane coming from the Atlanta airport due to the outage ..noone was informed of the delay while waiting for boarding. I had missed my original flight and was bumped to a later flight which turned into waiting 8 hours to board ..so, I really was frustrated."
Cons: "Nickle and diming....baggage fee, meal."
Cons: "The fact that you can not check in online unless pay for checked baggage is predatory and manipulative."
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Pros: "Easy, no probs. Clean & on time."
Cons: "Nuttin. All good."
Pros: "All of the united staff was very understanding and patient. Since this was the first time that we brought our daughter who is six months old we were both worried"
Pros: "The crew was good and the snack was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seat was absolute misery. I spent the second half of the flight constantly fidgeting trying to find a comfortable position that didn't feel like it was ruining my back. I was unsuccessful. Entertainment options were shocking. Each seat had a screen, but there was no free VOD. The only free option was a stream of two episodes of a terrible discovery show padded with ads to fill 4 hours. I tried to pull my laptop out to watch anything else, but the seat was too small to open a 15" laptop."
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Just your avergae flight and time for a quick flight to a nearby city"
Cons: "Just luggage being lost at the final destination was a despressing conversation"
Pros: "Overall experience was good."
Cons: "The food and the long layover"
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "I boarded Lufthansa Flight# 568 on June 1st from Frankfurt to Lagos (my Destination) but forgot my pair of glasses. I made a couple of calls and was finally able to get a contact email address for firstname.lastname@example.org. He is the gentleman at the NAHCO AVIANCE office. He was not only very professional but went over and beyond corresponding well and was able to get the word across to the Malabo Airport where the flight finally terminated. My pair of glasses was returned from Malabo to Nigeria where I picked it up within a couple of days. I was so overjoyed at this display of fantastic customer service. Great job by the excellent team at Lufthansa. I'm going to remain with Lufthansa for future trips. Signed OF."
Pros: "The crew was understanding and patient"
Cons: "I was informed by text that flight would be 3 hours late but when I called I was told I would need to get to airport at least an hour before scheduled departure as They MIGHT get a new aircraft!!!! However when I got to airport the flight was now listed at 4 hours late. Then it was listed as 6 hours late and We arrived 6 1/2 hours late. I had missed my first trAin connection and lost part of that fee because of change then had to take UBER from airport to Penn Station in order to catch the LAST train to my home in upstate NY and was so late I could not call people to pick me up so had to take another taxi. The $50 credit you gave us did not even cover my extra taxi fares let alone aggravation AND the TV monitor in front of my seat did not work!! I am a United mileage person who flies regularly but to Texas and internationally but this was worst flight in years."
Pros: "I like that since the fight wasn't full, and I didn't know until after I bought my ticket on kayak that I couldn't change seats. The crew allowed me and my friend to sit together."
Cons: "That the window seat armrest doesn't raise to allow more room that's available."
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Pros: "Everything, wheelchair, knowledgable staff, got me where I needed, no confusion, patient with my worries."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Danny and tansha were friendly . They looked like they enjoyed their jobs. The kind of people that if we met on the street I'd want to hang out with."
Cons: "The run through the Huston hub, to catch a flight in 10 minutes."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "4 hours 40 mins delay."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Cons: "The arrogance and attitude from air crew, ground service staff to lounge receptionist was unreal."
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Cons: "I didn't get any food mainly because of the cost. I did get a complimentary drink. I did not get any entertainment but was under the impression there was a cost. Too short of a flight for that."
Pros: "Ashley, the stewardist, stole my heart. She poured me water with such finesse it brought a renewed passion to my photography."
Cons: "They should really get some wifi for free. Its the future man!!!"
Cons: "Everything was horrible"
Cons: "Had to deboard after an hour on the plane. Waited another hour for next flight."
Pros: "After loading and putting bags overhead, announcement came that we needed to change planes due to the starter on one engine didn't work. Then was advised we did not have to change planes, there would be a 20 minute delay because they had 'found' a mechanic. Flight went well the rest of the flight."
Cons: "Delay without updates. Almost missed my connection. No TV."
Cons: "The people at the check in in Boise were unpleasant. Seemed angry and frustrated with everyone. Our flight from San Francisco to Boise was cancelled and the person on the phone was not helpful at all. The two flight attendants argued at least three times dragging passengers in on their fight. My husband and I were sitting in the back. It was very uncomfortable. Thank goodness I had my headphones. Then the flight attendant followed one of the passengers to the women's restroom at the SF airport to argue her point after overhearing she was going to email the airline!"
Pros: "Space, cleanliness, boarding procedures"
Cons: "Snack options"
Pros: "I must say I was happy with the comfortable seats and easy check in. Also found it to be a little more spacious than other airlines. Helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "However, there was a 2 hour delay for "maintenance" on my way to my destination. Then, on my returning flight, there was another 1 hour delay. I understand it happens here and there, but I got held up both ways. Just thought I'd mention this."
Cons: "Needs more leg room"
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected and the pilot kept communication open to us. Onboarding from Austin was smooth and the agents were friendly at the gate."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge as there was not enough overhead room, delaying getting on/off the plane because my bags ended up in the back of the plane far from my seat. No TVs, tight space / small plane."
Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"
Cons: "Rerouted to Dulles and then to Boston instead of Manchester.. With no assistance in finding a way to Manchester in the middle of the night. Asked for help. Nothing."
Pros: "Never took a flight to Appleton cause the assigned planemail never showed up. I ended up getting a flight to Green Bay, and arranging for someone to pick me up there instead. Now I have no idea exactly where my luggage is!"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay"
Cons: "The directtv was not free. My charger wouldnt stay plugged because the outlet was loose"
Pros: "First time in a plane and it was the smoothest ride"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
