Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "crj900 from BUF-MSP is a wreck. worn out, uncomfortable seats, cold air coming from floor toes were numb for about 20m after flight. Flight delayed, missed connecting flight, lost comfort+ upgrade I paid for. No excuse for pitch in main cabin on 737-900 ER."

Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."
Pros: "Entertainment on seats"
Cons: "I sat in seat 12A- the window was so hot it was burning my arm and I was extremely hot. Not sure if it’s from the engine heat or sun but it’s probably a mechanical issue that the 737 should address. Horribly uncomfortable trip."

Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "The flight attendants were absolutely incredible. One of the best crews I've ever flown with."

Cons: "Plane was late for takeoff and we arrived 30 minutes after scheduled time. They didn’t announce a delay or apologize."

Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "3 hours late flight- customer care very insensitive and unhelpful"

Pros: "Left on time, service was good."

Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "Our seats were booked by a cruise line and were not together on this flight. When my husband asked, the gate agent was able to seat us in at least the same row."
Cons: "American airlines uses old planes with no amenities. The service was poor with only 1 beverage service in 6 hr flight (due to turbulence they said ). Most food purchase options were gone by row 18..."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "I liked that we were given cookies with our drinks that was a nice touch. I also enjoyed that it was a very quick flight from Dallas to Cincinnati. Shout out to the crew members, they work really hard to help us feel comfortable."
Cons: "The sound of the turbo engine in the beginning made my head feel really dizzy, but the buzzing went away after a while. Other than that, I think that the tiny planes should still have some sort of entertainment, even if it's just a single movie playing for all to watch."
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Good crew on board"
Cons: "Poor communication, continued delays of flight. Poor on ground staff at dca"
Cons: "The check in"
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."
Cons: "Too many delays. Having to de-board after boarding."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "Delays Was told my ticket had been canceled"
Pros: "Free wine Great Movies Great food including ice cream!!! Free pillow, blanket, and headphones!!"
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."
Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "It was a reminder again why I never fly United"
Pros: "It was on time and the crew were good"
Cons: "Padlocks being cut of our luggage with no explanation!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."

Cons: "Sat on runway for 45 minutes with no updates"
Pros: "Big selection of movies if you have the United app."
Cons: "Tiny overheads in the 777 so they took carry-ons from at least half the people on the flight. Out of the hamburger by the time they left Economy Plus. Narrow seats, very little seat pitch. I am not quite 5' 10" and I only have a couple inches between my legs and the seatback. Similarly cramped restrooms."
Cons: "Several delays for maintenance and then plane in our gate when we landed"
Pros: "Gusty winds in CID - the crew handled this quite well. Smooth flight."

Cons: "No movie anymore."
Pros: "United is an OK airline, but their planes are old and not comfortable, entertainment is inexistent since it has old and bad screens and everything is paid, better to have your own tablet."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable, airplanes too old, food is bad, crew members don't have the service as Asian or Middle east airlines."
Pros: "I like how orderly and quick the boarding process was."
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."
Cons: "In both airports I was wheeled to gates and left in the way of people coming and going. I tried to get the attention of airline employees and when I did they told someone else and so I sat for between 40-60 minutes."
Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."
Pros: "I like the price and the time of the flight. Thank you"
Pros: "I liked that it was a fast flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seating was crowded."
Pros: "On time Nice crew No complaints"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Cons: "That I never made it to Dallas and so lost my job. Thanks to unitrd."
Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 5:30 did not depart until around 7:20!!! Had to sit on plane for almost 2 hrs!! We were NOT OFFERED anything to drink Not even water!! Jet Blue would NEVER be neglectful, they are very service oriented. Plane was full & 2 babies on board one was fussy crying at times. It was s nightmare!! I was exhausted from traveling to NYC & Philly! & the delay & lack of service was AWFUL!! Could not watch TV, bc It either connects to phone, I could not connect it or I think you had to pay! Unheard of!!!I love to watch CNN, MSNBC & Fox it makes the time fly!! Hopefully will Never have to fly United Again"
Cons: "They cancelled my return flight when I rebooked through united online."

Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"
Cons: "Ok for a short flight"
Pros: "Great view. My wife and 3 year old's seats were separated and I had bought a ticket on this flight home at the last minute so my seat was quite far away. The gate agent went above and beyond by loving some people and putting all three of us together!"

Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "Having to pay a baggage fee for the one bag I checked; lack of seat/leg room."
Cons: "The snack offering was not appealing. I understand nut allergy sensitivities but the option was poorly decided."
Pros: "Everything was great we just had to sit for mechanical issues. Announcing ETAs is crucial for those of us getting picked up"
Pros: "Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time."
Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."
Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"
Cons: "The fact I had to buy a tv package when on my previous"
Pros: "This was one of the top 5 worst flights. I have over 150k of miles logged. I will do my best to NEVER fly United again."

Pros: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."
Pros: "Patrick- flight attendant"
