Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Cookies are delicious"
Cons: "I hate that United doesn’t let you get a boarding pass early if you don’t pay for for a bag. Hell, even Frontier lets you check in early. There was no one at the ticket counter till an hour before check in so I had to wait around outside security till I could get a boarding pass. It’s bullshit"
Cons: "On time departure !"
Pros: "Very comfortable, lots of space between seats!"
Cons: "Flying on United was surprisingly much better than our flight on Lufthansa"
Pros: "My original flight and rebooked flight were both canceled, then this flight was delayed. Even with the extra time, we still sat on the runway because paperwork wasn't in order. It was just a mess."
Cons: "I had to rebook my own flight and considering the plane was already delayed, it should have departed as soon as we left the gate."
Cons: "Almost a 5 hr flight and there was no food or snacks given and water by request only. It was a full flight and the crew had just an attitude. Never had a flight like this one before. Horrible just horrible"
Cons: "15 hours late! Terrible communication about the flight, conflicting messages, and no concern for the customers. What more CanIsay!"

Pros: "Check in was easy, no hassle. No lines"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have a direct flight from dc area to Houston instead of having to go thru Chicago."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. This was my 50th flight this year and first time any airline has no free entertainment. Probably will boycott united on future flights"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Rescheduled on next morning on economy class even though the original tickets booked for business class. No hotel, food voucher, etc. were provided blamed on the weather condition even though the bad weather was 1-2 days ago, and on the day of departure it was air traffic control problems which was stated in cancellation email."

Pros: "Great service and food"
Pros: "Space, cleanliness, boarding procedures"
Cons: "Snack options"
Pros: "Spacious seats, crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "It took a long time to get everyone on board even after the crew kept paging that they were closing the door. After running to catch the flight it would have been nice to stop before getting on the plane for food. Food service etc was almost 2 hours after getting on the flight."
Pros: "The fact that we were able to check two bags with no added cost and eve though we had to go through customs the bags were transferred for us after."
Cons: "The lack of entertainment on the second part of the flight which was serviced by United from Washington to Seattle. We had to use our own phones as the plane did not have screens and the choices of shows was a bit lacking, we also had to pay for drinks even though this was a 5.5 hour flight which should have included a meal."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Last second gate change. Plane departed and arrived late."
Pros: "Seating. It's a new plane."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving and you lost my luggage. I had $40 of frozen smoke meat on it that spoiled and I had no clothes or anything until 11:00 the next day and there was only one transfer for the luggage to make plus they had extra time because the plane was LATE."
Pros: "Friendly crew including the airport staff. Quick flight"
Cons: "Tight overhead baggage compartment"
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice staff, on time"
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!! The new planes cram us in even tighter. Unless you pay more, you suffer. Why should we have to pay more just because we are tall??!! Pocket for book etc is way too small."
Pros: "Very solid crew able to be efficient and courteous."
Pros: "The flight I actually took, the next morning, was fine."
Cons: "My connection was to the 10:35 pm flight from SF. My preceding United flight, from Chicago, got in late BUT BEFORE 10:35. Fellow passengers and I dashed to catch this shuttle but it HAD DEPARTED EARLY, even though ticket-holding passengers hadn't yet boarded and shuttle crew should have known we were on a delayed flight that had just landed. This was an expensive decision for United (it had to put 4 passengers up for the night) and very inconvenient for the passengers. AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. This shuttle had no more connecting flights to meet. It could have waited for us or, at least, taken off at its scheduled time."
Pros: "This was for my in-laws and they were very happy and great full for all the help"
Pros: "The Steward was amazing! He was such a sweet man, I really hope to see him on a flight again in the future. He was so silly and personable to everyone, and did fast service as well. Def a 10.0 and made the flight much more enjoyable. Lots of space on this plane because it's so small. It seems counterintuitive but that means there are less people stop it seems less crowded and more spacious."
Pros: "Originally was planned to fly into Denver but the flight was delayed due to weather, they were able to re-route us through SFO earlier in the day with no headache. The original flight ended up cancelled and so we would have been delayed a day or 2. The ease of the switch was perfect and allowed to focus on our trip and not the travel. 5 stars."
Pros: "Economy plus was nice."
Pros: "The flight was mercifully short and on time. I was very glad to get off."
Cons: "Weird boarding procedures at Houston where you have to wait in a giant holding pen and not allowed to go to your gate until it is almost ready for boarding. Rude United personnel to tell you about how that works. Flight was in a small regional jet where the overhead bins were tiny. Multiple screaming children In the row in front of me. Seats seemed small (though perhaps they are just the normal United small)."
Pros: "I really liked the streaming video from United wi fi. Unfortunately, while I had the United app on my phone, I don't have it on iPad so I had to watch lilliputian image on my phone. Don't think I could install United app in the air. If I could, it wasn't clear how to do it."
Cons: "On a long flight, having one head out of service can be a problem, especially for someone like myself who needs to use a bathroom frequently and I feel guilty if I take too long knowing I'm in the only functioning bathroom in the rear of the plane."
Pros: "Short flight. Food/entertainment N/A"
Pros: "I had lots of room, the flight was great"
Cons: "See above"
