Cons: I told attendant my carry on had Med equipment. She proceeded to stow other larger carryons and tried to get me to check it — then she just put it in biz class. Cabin was hot. They brought me just after takeoff instas of at lunch time. My entertainment system didn’t work and the only response was “we’re aware of it” no attempt to fix, no apology. Then flight attendant skipped my tow with drinks.

BOS
SFO
Okay 5.0

Cons: 1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order.

Cons: I had to wait over 1.5 hours to use the bathroom because of the food and drink carts. The flight attendant would not let me use first clsss and told me I had to wait. That was way to long to make someone wait.

Pros: Flight was stuck on the ground for 2 hrs because of a generator issue, so I missed my connection. The United app nicely pre-booked me on the next flight to my destination without my having to do anything, which was cool. Internet didn't work but they refunded my purchase.

Cons: The legroom is so much worse than jetBlue (which I usually fly) I almost couldn't believe it. Because of the generator issue the flight ended up being almost 9 hours. They ran out of ALL FOOD for purchase except chips (which they didn't even offer for free despite everything), so those of us in the back of the aircraft had our choice of a bag of chips for $4, or no food for 9 hours. Also, I paid $20 for the internet for the entire flight but it only worked for the first hour so I couldn't do any work.

Cons: WAs delayed for over 5 hours and missed my connecting flight. Had to abort takeoff go back to the gate and there were 2 issues with the plane

Excellent 8.4

Pros: Everything about this flight was good...EXCEPT the wifi.

Cons: Wifi is so madly expensive I will not fly United for business EVER (or a lot of pleasure--since often I have to catch up on work when in flight). Very disappointing. $40 for wifi is obscene...and the service was spotty. You know: my last few JetBlue flights had COMPLIMENTARY wifi--and it was good. I will fly JetBlue in the future whenever I need to be online. Really annoying, United.

Okay 4.6

Cons: The first contact in the airport was quite rude when informing me that I had to measure my suitcase for size. I have carried this suitcase on on every airline for over 10 years....the size got smaller and United got $25.00....not happy. There was NO free movies, no access to TV, flight pattern....nothing and it could not be turned off. ONE cookie for a coast-to-coast flight. What happened to United?

Cons: Got re-seated into a non-recline, bulkhead exit row. For a tall guy like me that's a death sentence on a 6h flight that's delayed extra at the end of a day

Okay 5.3

Pros: Only outstanding thing about the flight was the agent, Annie C. who checked us in at Logan. She was pleasant, polite, friendly and so helpful. If only the other personnel at United were like her.

Pros: The first 10 minutes that I was able to access in-flight entertainment.

Cons: After 10 minutes, the United WiFi was no longer available and passengers unable to acces in-flight entertainment. Passengers were also required to use their own devices. Monitors not available.

Mediocre 2.0

Cons: I arrived at the airport only to find out that they had instituted a no carry on policy for basic economy and that I'd have to check my bag. They acknowledged that they had not informed me of this but that I'd still have to pay. The flight was delayed and the crew was extremely rude through out the flight, to top it off the in flight entertainment and wifi didn't work and the seat was incredibly uncomfortable

Mediocre 2.6

Cons: The last 5 times I have flown united I have either been cancelled or delayed to the point that I miss my connecting flight aND get to the destination. 24 hours later I will NEVER book a united flight again

Okay 5.0

Cons: 1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order.

Excellent 8.5

Pros: We boarded very quickly. Take off and landing were immediate. I wasn't interrupted as I slept.

Cons: The flight was delayed. Ordinarily, a little over an hour isn't bad, but we ended up landing at 1:30 in the morning, local time. I called United expressing concern about the arrival time when I was first notified of the delay and all I was told was "I'm sorry for the inconvenience." I learned later that there was an earlier flight I could have tried to get on.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.

If you have more questions or if you have a bad price to report to us,
please send us an and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
