Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Airplane temperature was freezing"
Pros: "short time, smooth flight"
Cons: "The departure gate was changed four or five times, including after we had traipsed from one end of the concourse to the other, only to have the gate changed BACK to the one from which we came. This was at supper time; we wanted to eat in the terminal but were rousted from two different lines to change gates. We couldn't stop running back and forth long enough to eat! I got updated info more quickly from Kayak than from United, despite having signed up for email and text notifications and having the United app. Come on!! Eventually we were marched down to a narrow hallway, crowded with passengers from two other departing flights, held in formation by obviously harried gate agents and finally led outside to the ramp to board the plane. The worst boarding experience. Ever. Give me Southwest anytime."
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "It was a CRJ-700, but I was cramped..."
Pros: "Love the movies available on the United app"
Cons: "The A/C was blowing ice cubes at me, which wasn't the worst because it was pretty warm yesterday, but still it was less than ideal."
Pros: "The crew made the best out of it and thankfully it’s an extremely short flight."
Cons: "A 20 minute flight was delayed for 2.5 hrs. United did a terrible job with notifying passengers, just simply bumped out departure in 15 min increments. Original excuse was inbound delay, although plane was there for 6 hrs already. Passenger soiled himself in cabin and there was no ventilation."
Pros: "Flight was extremely late!"
Cons: "A lot of turbulence on this flight, often interrupting cabin service."
Pros: "Free snacks they gave us for the 6 hours delays."
Cons: "Everything, the delayed no one knew what was going on. It was also expensive and not as comfortable as other plans"
Pros: "The sound system had been down most of the flight. Butter cube was completed melt. Bread was cold in the center."
Cons: "Entertainment system. Rarely does an international flight not equipped with TV screen on back of chair. It's so ancient to have overhead screen"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and courteous. And the food was delicious."
Cons: "My legs hurt during the flght and I couldn't get pills for air sickness, plus a half-an-hour delay. Also, my screen didn't work properly, which needs repair."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Terrible food. Cramped, uncomfortable seats. No in-flight entertainment, app did not work."
Pros: "I liked that the captain communicated with the passengers about delays and the reasons for the delays over the intercom."
Cons: "I feel that I was treated by the employees at the boarding desk and by the customer service attendants as if I were garbage!!!! I was attempting to purchase an upgrade in my seating to avoid very uncomfortable swelling on my right ankle and other personal reasons. As I inquired with the man at the boarding gate about purchasing the upgrade I was told that there were none available. So I pulled out my tablet with the united airlines app and showed him the image of the empty business class seat that I would like to purchase on the seating map available in the app. He told me that he had no option on his computer screen to sell me the seat. I asked him where could I go or who could I ask to get the seat. This back and forth continued for some time where he kept saying he could not sell me the seat but I would then say, “I understand that, but do you know who can or where I can go to find someone who knows where I can buy an upgrade?” The attendant got VERY VERY upset that I was even ASKING. As if I were asking for some OUTRAGEOUS request!! I asked to speak with the manager several times. He continued by ignoring me and just saying NO! Finally he pointed to some lady beside him. I don't know if she was the manager or not, but she was on the phone and barely gave ten seconds of a glance to the situation. He asked me"Are you gonna go or not?" I could tell that he cared absolutely nothing about me or my request and was extremely dismissive in asking me this. Finally, he dismissively told me to ask the flight attendant. I could tell that this young man would be of no further help AT ALL, so I gave my ticket, went on board and thought to just try and ask a flight attendant. Right before I went to give my ticket to the man who was taking tickets, I heard the boarding gate man walk away mumbling how ANNOYING I was in Chinese. I know this because I SPEAK Chinese. This is HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL!! I continued to go on board hoping the flight attendants might actually have some information. When I asked, who I thought was the flight attendant, about purchasing a seat, it turns out that she was the customer service agent on the flight, she gave no effort to even try to hear what I was communicating to her. I know about communication and as a public speaking instructor, I know how to listen and to speak. She continued to raise her voice and talk over me, although I remained very calm and tried talking to her logically. I tried to communicate to her that I was attempting to purchase one of the empty business class seats that I had seen were empty. I checked the seating of the flight from the united airlines app before I had even boarded the plane. The lady continued to be very rude and uncaring. She talked over me, did not listen, her responses did not make sense, she very loudly kept asking me " CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT??" as if I was a child or as if I was confrontational when I absolutely was not. I noticed I had been trying to communicate for a while.wordlimit"
Pros: "Mediocre. The attendant was lovely."
Cons: "I hate being charged for one bag. It should be included. I'm glad I wasn't bumped off and dragged off the plane bloodied, it was a concern. Especially because I'm an Asian person."
Cons: "Flight was late Food on trip was barely average"
Pros: "Flight and crew great"
Cons: "I had one small bag and just did the economy and was going to put it under the seat. The guy at the checkin did not allow my bag and made me check it EVEN THOUGH it fit in their mock tray. He said I squeezed the sides 1 inch and that it just need to go in the tray by gravity. That is complete BS. As long as it fits under the seat and I am not putting my feet in others space thats is all that matters. Check in people at least one guy in Denver needs to be retrained."
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 min to change a tire. Takes too long to get paperwork for mechanical issues completed. Delayed 10 min on arrival while gate was readied. They had 2 hrs to get ready!!"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to tell someone to meet me so I could hopefully be on time at work. I was not on time .! I'm unhappy !"
Cons: "Gate attendant did not help people asking questions and snickered as an elderly couple walked away confused."
Pros: "It is hard to do poorly on such a short flight"
Pros: "No delay at all"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Leg room in economy was bad for a international flight"
Pros: "I made it home"
Cons: "No plugs for electrical, no entertainment and no internet. The seats were very tight. Especially the man next to me was 300+ lbs. Also I had to pay for baggage even though I have united cc. American has all these things and doesn't charge me for baggage."
Pros: "It was a quick flight that was really nice"
Cons: "People got on at the last moment"
Cons: "Firat flight wver. Age 28. Lots of turbulence. 4 hour delay with no explanation"
Pros: "Very good!"
Pros: "The flight was short and left on time."
Cons: "The same problem as with the other flight: no headrest tabs and not much leg room."
Pros: "Flight was delayed almost missed connection."
Cons: "Wouldn't let us off the plane for over an hour. 100 yds from the gate. Got home after midnight."
Pros: "Never been treated so disrespectful and like I was insignificant in allyour life!"
Pros: "Being told how unimportant my issue/ need was"
Cons: "Customer service, terrible desk agents and a triple delay."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by an hour and a half. That's the amount of time I could have spent to drive home to Milwaukee. I stuck around because there was no indication of a flight cancellation. I would rather hop on a 15-30min flight than go through the hassle of renting a car. BUT the flight did get canceled, the next flight was completely booked and the next flight out after that was at NIGHT. I arrived in Chicago in the morning. The gate agent told us all to head to United customer service. There I received RUDE, poor excuse of a "service" only to be told they don't give refunds at the counter as we were told by the gate agent. So do that on your own time. THEN I had to buy my bus ticket and spend 1.5-2hrs on top of already waiting 1.5hrs for the flight that got canceled. HORRIBLE. Will never fly United again. Did i mention upon my arrival home I found out American was WIDE open seat wise to chicago?? And no one checked for me!"
Pros: "Efficient and arrived early."
Pros: "It never took off. I should have just drove from NYC to Milwaukee. It would have been faster! Now, I have to deal with baggage issues because they made me unnecessarily check my carry on."
Cons: "All of it"
Pros: "Smaller crowd"
Cons: "Had to rush from one terminal to another to just barely make boarding, there was a bad smell on the plane, and the staff was not friendly."
Cons: "There were no snacks on the second leg of the flight. I guess the flight was too short."
Pros: "Flight departed An hour late but caught up time on route. service was cold, rude and lazy. Many passenger brought food trash tray to the station by themselves. Bathroom was gross. Food was salty and I requested water and I was ignored. I finally raised my voice and start asking their names because I would write a complain. Tha started all hassle for me. Long story short, I was demanded to identify if I held Chinese or US passport... I have written a letter to United CEO. I got reply that I would get a reply in 24-48 hours. I'm waiting. My second leg was two hours delay from Chicago to Boston."
Cons: "those FA should be fired, especially the one who demanded to identify my nationality."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Very short flight so rating entertainment & food is not really relevant. 15 minutes in the air."
Cons: "The crew members were not very happy and were snappy in their replies. The seating is ridiculously small, you cannot access the carry one baggage under the seat if the person in front of you puts their seat back. The food was better this time than the flight to Beijing, still not great. I also need to add that the original flight from Chicago to Beijing had a 7 hour delay which was ridiculous, especially when traveling so far. No food vouchers were offered and passengers were kept in the dark for long periods of time. The return flight was also slightly delayed. This is not a good reputation for an airlines to have. United will not be my first choice of airlines in the future."
Pros: "What can you say ?? It's a 20 minute flight on a tiny cramped plane but it got us from A to B on time. Crew was as friendly as they needed to be. Landing was very hard."
Pros: "How helpful the flight attendants were. And how they didn't disturb me while I slept."
Cons: "How there wasn't much elbow room for the person sitting in the middle seat."
Cons: "The flight was canceled with no explanation or an offer to reschedule. The next flight available was tomorrow afternoon which was not acceptable. When I asked customer service about a refund I was told to go to the website, but it was not guaranteed. Highly disappointed."
Pros: "Crew was efficient, professional and pleasant."
Cons: "No food; only a drink. Tight seating. No entertainment. The sun kept bouncing off the magazine and iPhone of the lady kitty-corner across the aisle into my eyes-- very uncomfortable!!"
Cons: "I missed my connection due to long lines in customs and security. United was unable to get me another flight out that day and I ended up taking a bus back to Milwaukee instead."
Pros: "Flight attendants were okay and we made up an hour on the way which did not make up for the 5 hour delay in Beijing."
Cons: "United did not come close to matching the Air China flight service and entertainment from SFO to Beijing. Was told we would get a voucher for the hotel but only got $10 voucher each for lunch which did not cover lunch. Had to stand in a line for an hour to check in even though we did not have luggage. All in all, a very frustrating experience."
Pros: "The smooth take off & landing. The flight attendants were very helpful."
Cons: "In Houston, At the gate with my ticket in hand, I was told I was not on the flight and would have to be scheduled on the next flight. The boarding pass in my hand matched the flight and time with the seat I picked out online when I purchased the ticket. Then a bad storm went through and many flights were cancelled. (Not the fault of United of course). About 9 hours later with a new boarding pass, I went to the gate to board and was told once again that I was not on that flight even though I was holding a new boarding pass!! What is going on here!? How can this happen twice to the same person, let alone happen at all??!"
Pros: "We were on time and that was great!"
