This was a pretty typical United flight to SFO. Nice crew, nice plane, no issues.

This is not on United, but LAX has a long way to go to reach that "wonderful airport experience." They keep broadcasting those security messages over and over and over - way too much. The airport employees, in general, are tired and jaded - very few were helpful. The terminal buses were way too few - I walked from T4 to T7 because I got tired of waiting. Not enough signage for folks not familiar with LAX

Nice new seats.

The new seats are meant for "people shorter than 6 feet tall" as the flight attendant said to me. Is the airline industry deliberately discriminating against 6'6" people? 15% of the people you seat based on population are over 6'. I'm sick of paying more money for my long legs.

Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change.

Always a fan of snacks and JetBlue staff were great

45 minute delay should have been communicated earlier then we are at a remote terminal even though we landed late then we are sitting waiting in the plane because they can’t get the stairs to work so we have to get tugged to a gate. If flight is running late you should have it together when we land. Been sitting in the plane not moving for another 30 minutes and counting on top of the 45 minute delay. All for a 1 hour flight...

No other flights available For family of three until 3 days later! Had to demand to be transferred to another airline so my family & I can go home the next morning. Overall stuck in SNA airport for 8 hours. Didn’t get a refund for baggage, instead was given meal vouchers for the airport in the morning. United did provide hotel for the night but nothing special.

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.
