Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Heating and serving food in plastic containers."
Pros: "Good service by crew."
Cons: "Online check in was not working which meant long line to check in at airport."
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."

Cons: "My flight got cancelled ten minutes before boarding. Workers gathered phone numbers and told us they would call to direct us a new flight. However, no calls were ever made. I had to call the airline multiple times to get an answer about a new flight. In my first call, the customer service was rude. There was also zero compensation for the inconvenience."

Cons: "Plane configuration; seats were a bit cramped, knee space."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, food was good, and the plane was nice."

Cons: "No lie flat seats."
Pros: "Food was great, seats were comfortable, in flight entertainment was awesome, flight crew was friendly"

Cons: "Not enough food was served for a 16.5 hour flight."
Pros: "As the flight would be long (from Japan to Sao Paulo) they had the gentleness of putting us in the best seats well ahead that were available"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was excellent. They'll bring you pretty much anything reasonable you ask for. In flight entertainment options were many. I don't eat a lot of airline food, but the meals exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "I am quite tall (6'5"/1.92m), the in flight comfort was brutal. It'll take my knees a week or two to forget the constant jamming from the seat in front of me. Otherwise, on boarding was well organized, but very slow. Sound quality on provided headphones was very poor."

Cons: "Evry thing"
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"

Pros: "Crew were all excellent and very helpful"
Cons: "Counter and check in staff were exceptionally rude and unhelpful. The pervading attitude at Dulles was they were incredibly inconvenienced that I had bought a ticket and wanted to check in luggage and was going to fly."
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Pros: "The flight was quick for the time we were in the air."
Cons: "This flight was delayed by over an hour. The plane is tiny so overhead space barely fits a briefcase and the seats are smaller than normal. Since this is a smaller aircraft, unfortunately that is expected."
Pros: "Very kind and professional cabin crew."
Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "Everything was very nice."
Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"
Pros: "Finally getting home safe and sound."
Cons: "It was close to an 8 hour layover for a 35 minutue flight. We almost made an earlier flight that supposedly had room for our luggage but not us. So when we finally got to Pittsburgh our luggage was just sitting at the terminal unattended. Hundreds of people were delayed or had cancelled flights and it wasn't due to weather or related conditions. It was lack of planes and what appeared to be double-booked flights."
Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."
Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"
Cons: "Flight 1039 dec 16 was delayed due to late inbound arrival to Aruba. United gave the reason "delayed Maintenance" which United denied as mechanical failure. We missed connected flight to Albany. United gave us only option: morning flight to Washington and then To Albany which is inacceptable option. We took rental car. Also: Workers at Newark do not coordinate. Super Slow and give disinformation."
Pros: "Mebbe UA learned its lesson after being skewed for a couple of customer horror stories. My domestic flight from MCO to ORD was entirely pleasant. The plane left on time & arrived on time. I noticed quite a few airport employees at O’Hare had a chip on their shoulders, as if they hated their job but needed it to live. There’s better jobs out there if you don’t like dealing w the public."
Pros: "United continues to deteriorate with awful food and entertainment. I paid fir a premium seat and was greatly disappointed because it was so uncomfortable."
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "Loved it."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The flight was more than half empty and instead of allowing customers to move forward to the “premium” seats, the flight crew keep everyone all bunched up in the back of the plane. It would have been a nice customer service gesture to allow people to move forward. And, hey, maybe next time people would have bought those seats if they could have experienced them. Guess I should have felt lucky to remain on the plane and not get punched in the face..."
Cons: "Had to download the United app to watch in flight movies. Then it didn't even work. The only thing that would play were the trailers."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""
Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."
Pros: "We arrived safely, the captain was lighthearted."
Cons: "DRUNK seatmate, who yelled profanity and also that he was drunk several times. Not only did the crew do nothing about it, they served him 2 more drinks! Since there were no air sick bags, I took my food out of my zip lock to have something to offer him when he made retching noises (though he didn't throw up). Isn't the flight crew supposed to prevent visibly drunk people from flying?"
Pros: "That I FINALLY got home."
Cons: "Total snafu from start to finish."
Pros: "The price was cheaper than the other airlines. The flight itself was pretty smooth with very little turbulence."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, and the coffee was way too strong, and there was no Splenda, only Equal, which contrary to the flight attendant's knowledge is NOT "the same thing." United provides only 1 cheap sugary snack for the whole 5 hour flight. Couldn't get my phone to connect to the internet b/c I didn't have my United Mileage plan number written down or recorded anywhere, and I didn't have the card with me. To top it off, there was a screaming toddler in the next aisle over."
Pros: "The crew was excellent - courteous/aware/friendly. The flight, although 2 hours delayed (9;20pm scheduled departure) was pleasant and smooth. Also, the de-boarding process was surprisingly quick."
Cons: "A 2 hour delay at 9:20pm at night is unfortunate yet frustrating experience, especially when we moved our flight up due to a travel warning for EWR (ironically enough, our originally scheduled flight (1922 MCO-EWR). I'm giving an overall OK (instead of good) due to the fact that there were no snacks (although I did not want anything, it didn't go unnoticed) and although there was free inflight entertainment for personal devices, I feel the passengers should have been given free internet access - in my opinion, it would have been the appropriate thing to do. In any case, this experience doesn't change my positive opinion of United."
Pros: "All perfect! Amazing how much nicer flight staff was!!"
Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."
Pros: "Enjoyed the free movies"

Cons: "Well, first of all, it was operated by United. It wasn't even a Lufthansa flight. Also, there was no power outlets in economy. What year is this again??? And no touchscreen to choose what movie I want to watch?? Get with the times, United"
Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."
Cons: "This flight didn't happen."
Cons: "Very small plane. I have to valet my carry on which meant removing all my medicine (I am a cancer patient) and my camera and carry them on board with me."
Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."
Pros: "11 hour delay announced iteratively in two hour increments. Worst flying experience to date. I may no longer fly united as a result."
Cons: "The 11 hour delay preceding my 14 hour flight."

Cons: "Flight left an hour late with no clear explanatiom, making it really difficult to get home at the time of arrival."
Pros: "united customer service quickly booked new flight for second leg as I was not going to make it in time"
Cons: "I did not like waking up super early in the morning only to sit at airport for 3 hours because an escape hatch leaked and got the radios wet. only to have the nearest tech over an hour away. and for him to not be able to do anything but let it dry out. Then the flight attendants did not even do a beverage service."
Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"
Pros: "The flight attendants pilots staff all amazing"
Cons: "Out of the control of anyone the weather was terrible"
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."
