Cons: 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.

Pros: I had a great experience flying with United Airlines right from the moment I boarded the plane. The flight crew welcomed me (not that I expected them to do), the crew were very nice and in positive attitude. But above all, I loved the flight information videos on my screen. They were very informative, very entertaining and engaging, and funny. I think United Airlines did a great job creating these in-flight videos.

Cons: Alcoholic beverages were expensive on board the plane.

LAX
SFO
Excellent 9.0

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

Cons: 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

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.
