Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "It apparently was not noticed until the last minute that the plane parked at the designated gate was not the right plane. Just as we were ready to board, had to change gates. the announcement of new gate was not in clear English. Instead of saying 'C' as in Charlie, just C3, which sounded like a D, which would have been a concourse change. Little things, but they add up, when your previous flight was late on arrival."
Cons: "Last to board with a young child."
Cons: "experienced a 1hr mechanical delay. it would be nice if refreshments were served."
Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."
Cons: "The seats were so close together! I was between two men, and one was spitting tabaco into a cup. It was terrible."
Pros: "The crew was nice."

Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours which caused us (me, wife, 4yo, and 7mo) to miss our connection from LAX to HNL. We had to stay the night in LA and take a morning flight to HNL. But despite the delay, the gate agent in Charlotte did a good job of updating people and remained very polite even when it was clear people were getting frustrated and starting to get sharp with him. Pilots did a good job of trying to make up as much time as possible. I can't remember how much time they shaved off but I think it was more than 20 minutes. Customer service in LA was solid too. Went to CSD to get our tickets changed. They had already changed our flight to a 8 AM flight. We asked if we could take a later flight because of the kids and he was able to accommodate. They also gave us vouchers for 3 meals and a night at the Holiday Inn. Having a delayed flight is never fun but the AA staff was amazing throughout."

Coming back- not so much."

The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."

I am extremely upset because I paid an extra $75.00 on day of to get home earlier but ended up getting home at the same time that I would have on my original flight because the flight was late and I missed my shuttle because 1920 was late boarding.

The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Cons: "Roomier Seats more isle space and comfortable seating. Better head sets"
Cons: "Luthsansa sent the reminder 30 prior the flight that was a delay on the flight operated by United. I called customer service they do don’t helped and hanged up twice. Finally after waiting for an hour on the airport the same flight was change 4 times more. A manager in United got us in a different flight but we arrived 40 minutes later to Madrid and missed our connection to our other flight. I had to buy a one way expensive tickets because my connection was loss due to the issues with the FL rigth from Charlotte"

Cons: "The first flight got delayed, was supposed to work night shift, was late, had to call in sick, and not sure what my manager will do after this."
Cons: "I would have liked to arrive home before 12 noon but due to United delaying my fligh twice and not being able to make the connection in washington . I had to plead with them to put me on a direct flight to Newark which made me fly another carrier "American airlines". I'm not sure what the issue was for the delays but it was frustrated."
Pros: "The leg from Denver to vegas was awesome"
Cons: "The first leg didn't have any snacks and a cold continental breakfast. American and Delta's breakfast is much nicer. But worth the price for that portion of the leg."
Cons: "Delayed for over 3 hours due to jetbridge being stuck to plane. Basically 2 5.5 hours have taken me 2 full days instead of one"
Pros: "The agent in charlotte. Due to my delayed flight which caused all my other flights to get re-booked - she went above amd beyond to help get me on a flight with my friends"
Cons: "Almost everyrhing - first flight delayed which caused all my flights to get rebooked. Was told when I flew feom charlotte to phoenix connecting flight would be at 1:59. Landed and found out delayed for 6 hrs. Should have originally arrived in Honolulu at 5:30, disn't get there till 1:00 am their time. Ridiculous -"
Cons: "Flight massively delayed. Missed my connection. And the next flight. If they had called ahead at the gate would have made the next one, instead had to sleep in the airport overnight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! They really communicated with the passengers regarding connecting flights and flight time delays."

Pros: "The staff and crew were very helpful, especially in helping catch my connection. Which leads to the dislike."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "AgainThe person next to me was so obese she needed two extenqders. She was taking up her seat and most of her neighbors, she was in the middle. I was literally pinned against the aisle arm rest. It was a full flight and I wasn't able to be moved. For the entire flight I was cramped and pinned with no where to go."
Cons: "Because of plane problems I had to wait until the next day to fly home. Very inconvenient."
Pros: "all went well...no issues"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat I have ever ridden on a flight. My back and posterior were in pain for over a day after the flight. Terrible treatment of passengers to pack a few more people in like cattle. Thinnest seats I have ever seen that felt and looked like hard plastic. This was an Embraer 175 jet...will never fly on one of these again. Had a hard landing in excellent weather. Flew the same route back to Charlotte on an American Airlines A320...these seats were comfortable and the landing was smooth even with a 20mph crosswind."
Pros: "Delayed Flight, late flight attendant that delayed flight 1.5 hr. Causing many to miss overseas connections. Changed arrival terminal."
Cons: "Explained flight delay due to one attendant not showing up. Needs to be a better back up system."
Pros: "Ease of security and boarding. Friendly and accommodating staff. No concerns at all."
Pros: "on time and very polite.. good flight"
Cons: "I had a seat that had a monitor that was steaming code in front of me for 6 hours. It couldn't even be turned off. The only thing the crew offered was a piece of cardboard to cover it up. "If you download the United app you can pay to stream movies." I hate United and I don't use that word often. I would much rather give praises than complaints. Pay extra for food, entertainment, emergency isle seats... not that the tickets didn't already cost me a fortune. Crew even gave me grief about hanging up my suit!?! I flew to Thailand recently for less than flying to Texas, and everything was included, comfortable, and FRIENDLY. NOT UNITED."
Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Well to start off, this was my very first time flying on United and both flights had minor trouble. The first flight had a delay that almost caused me to miss the next flight. The second flight had a minor delay but I made it home at the scheduled time. Other than that the flight was very good."
Pros: "Despite weather delay, the flight crew was very energetic and in a positive mood."
Cons: "They suspended my ticket claiming I was a NO SHOW when that was not the case @ all!"
Cons: "Nothing not to like!"
Cons: "There was a delayed my flight, arrived late, delayed in the plane getting off, nothing but delays."
Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Pros: "everyone was quick, efficient, and customer oriented. seats were comfortable and the snacks were nice."
Pros: "Not much positive on this flight other than I was headed home. I had a decent seat but I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "This review is for another flight that paid for the same day as this flight from LA to Lihue. The actual flight for this review is a different flight that I paid to get my friend on so could get home. He pretty much had an equally bad experience. The following is my review from my flight from San Diego to Lihue, through San Fransisco. I paid for both flights but wasn't offered the opportunity to submit a review for the flight I was on so I'm taking this opportunity now to do so. I was on a flight home after losing one of my best friends. The flight attendant was extremely rude, making me feel like she was going out of her way to get me a drink of water and never returned to offer food after they missed me when they went down the isle. The gentleman attending to the first class passengers was beyond rude to anyone attempting to use the lavatory near the first class section as if people were supposed to know that it was only available to first class passengers. I was never offered food and myself and other passengers repeatedly ignored by our flight attendant. The entire flight was freezing cold and the air blowing so loud that I couldn't hear any volume on the movie player I was watching, making that nearly impossible as well. I landed at my destination feeling cold and hungry with a pretty bad taste in my mouth towards United Airlines. I don't normally fly United but due to the untimely hospitalization of one of my best friends and having to fly on such short notice, it was all that was available. I used to be a united mileage member but my points expired and became useless to me, living in Hawaii with very few flights in and out of the state several years ago. They seem to have added flights since then but other airlines have won my loyalty since then. I was hoping for a better experience as I remember having better experiences flying United. After this recent experience, I'm not sure that I will be flying United again, especially given the price of fares and what you get for what you pay. You'd think the staff would be more welcoming knowing that people pay so much to fly and then pay for everything else once on the plane. (A comfortable seat, food, drink, etc)."
Cons: "I didn't like the 5 hour delay... Neither did any other United customer as it seemed like every single flight was delayed to everywhere for only united airlines"
Cons: "I flew to Charlotte, NC last week from Houston with my husband for a funeral. The flight there went smoothly and we used the United app to check in and get our boarding passes. When it came time to check in for our flight home my husband was able to get his boarding pass, but they said mine was unavailable. Obviously concerned I called United. After being on hold for over an hour I was able to speak to a representative. I was told that I hadn't show up for my flight to Charlotte... so they had canceled the returning flight. Not only was I on that flight my boarding pass was scanned twice (one at security and once during boarding). The representative then told me to go to the airport the next day and "try" to explain what happened. I don't know if this was some sort of glitch in the system, but I was very concerned and upset that someone could be on a flight with no record of them being on the plane... and that I was having to spend 2 hours trying to figure out if I could go home after a very stressful day... during a time when I should have been with my family. The next day I had to show up the the airport extra early while the representative there tried to figure out how to reactivate my ticket. Overall, an awful experience... I don't think I will be flying with United again anytime soon."
Pros: "Everything, service, timing. Great job"
Pros: "Everything was fine. I have a small suggestion , why don't you have direct flights from charlotte to tampa or Tampa to Charlotte for bit cheaper fares?"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and satisfaction with every aspect of my flight."
Cons: "My vehicle keys were removed from my checked luggage requiring to pay extensively to have a locksmith come to the airport the next day to create new keys. I slept in the parking lot due to the fact the locksmith could only open the doors and could not cut new electronic keys until morning. I am extremely enraged over this incident. I know the keys were contained in this article due to the fact that the Keychain was left on top, without keys. I could not imagine why someone would remove these keys from my Keychain that holds only those keys. I would like to hear your openion on the matter. Thanks, Alexander Kruse"
Pros: "They Canceled My and did not refund my money Never will use United Ever Again Scum Buckets"
Cons: "Give me my money back"
Pros: "Great flight from Washington to GrandRapids! We flew into GRR on a evening where there was a winter storm advisory and had a smooth trip all the way. United had a very good pilot and crew that evening."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Service was good and everything went well once on the flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours."
Cons: "A lot of turbulence. Very shakey."
Pros: "they lost my luggage"
Pros: "The first leg of our trip started late and we were parked on the tarmac waiting for a departure gate. Once we were allowed to depart we had the desk at that gate radio ahead. After sprinting to the connecting flight they stated they had already stopped boarding even though we were five minutes earlier then departure time. We had to take another flight in the morning ended up costing a days worth of time and a lot of extra expense."
Pros: "Able to book me on a nonstop with American Airlines...which was NOT ridiculously understaffed. Flying Americsn next time! And the lost baggage claim guys for American in Cleveland are the best!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so I would've missed my connecting flight. They didn't switch my bag so it was lost. United never gave out luggage ID stickers in Charlotte....seriously."
Pros: "Although it was a new airliner to United, it had noticeable more legroom than the Airbus aircraft that other airlines use. Luggage room for your carryon was ok, though not near as convenient as the Boeing's."
Cons: "My plane was late. Then my other plane left. They lost my baggage. And I had to stay overnight in the airport"
