LAX
SFO
Okay 5.6

Pros: The only thing I liked was that I was one fight closer to home. This flight was awful.

Cons: The aft lavatory had a broken seat lid so they took the entire lavatory out of commission for our flight, and our flight knowingly experienced ground delays so one lavatory for 100 people for several hours is UNPLEASANT. One crewmember was in a foul mood, and due to the lavatory issue, refused to let anyone use the forward lavatory while she was doing drink service, even during an emergency.

Okay 4.3

Pros: I finally arrived at my destination

Cons: he flight was from lax to SFO, the printed ticket said it was a two hour flight whereas I know it is a one hour flight. We proceeded to board the plane on time and then pushed off the gate and sat in the runway for 45 minutes fly to sf and sit there on the runway for 30-45 minutes. Which meant that we were on the runway more than in the air. I would never pick United again for my flight between la and sf as it would be much quicker and easier with southwest, Virgin or JetBlue.

Pros: The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together.

Pros: I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment.

They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card.

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.
