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."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "Quiet, easy to sleep on"
Cons: "Running late, but only by 30 mins. Better than it could have been!"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Since we have an AAdvantage CitiCard and are AAdvantage members, it is disconcerting to have to claim your privilege of 1 free bag and priority boarding each time. This is embarrassing at the gate especially since it looks like we are cutting the line. What good is this "privilege" if you have to assert it every time or hold a credit card in hand with your carryon and boarding pass. This should be included in our ticketing at the time of purchase and upgraded on our boarding pass if we use the damn card for the purchase. It is now not a "privilege" but an inconvenience."
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: "We had to walk outside to board the plane. My husband has two bad hips and we had to walk up a flight of stairs to board the plane. The plane was extremely small and our sits were located in the rear of the plane. The bathroom had an unpleasant odor."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."
Cons: "No power outlets or USB ports on a 5+ hour flight. Not great for business."
Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."

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."

Pros: "I loved not having to change planes."

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. I should be reimbursed SOMETHING for my inconvenience...especially after paying $75.00 extra for an earlier flight."

Finally after waiting for an hour on the airport the same flight was change 4 times more.

Cons: "I got to the airport 40 minutes early. The flight was out at 6:20, I was there by 5:40. They did not let me print out a boarding pass. I could see the gate from the security line and the security line was EMPTY. There was no reason for them not to let me get on the plane, but they ended up scheduling me for a flight to Denver with the connecting flight in the morning- delaying my trip 24 hrs and charging me an extra 125$!!! I ended up paying an extra 85$ to American and was able to get to PHX that afternoon! The ladies at United were straight up RUDE too. When I told the lady at the counter my name she rolled her eyes."

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: "Clean! Comfortable seats. Crew friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie choices limited, but even worse was that most of the machines were not working properly (could not read credit card info - so useless!!). And when they did the earphone connection was so poor you could only rarely understand what was being said. Very discouraging for a 5-6 hour flight!!! Fortunately the flight was only half full so I eventually found a monitor that would take my credit card ( after upsetting many folks, including myself, with all the moves ). My ears were mush trying to hear something that made sense ( work fine with my iPod). In the end the stewardess admitted the system was poor and they would be replacing it with a new service. At least then I stopped being frustrated with United. Wish I knew the system name and manufacturer so I could berate them for an inferior product. So sick of this in US. Products that are designed to fail after use - or not built to withstand the use they will be getting."
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: "I loved the free WIFI!!!!!! I had the United App and it allowed me to watch Avatar on the long journey to Hawaii. I think United needs to make that more known to the public for a huge advantage over all other airlines. The crew was also extremely helpful and kind."
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."
Cons: "No entertainment at all, poor food, handwritten menus, no access to lounge despite being in First class, nothing to drink or eat until an hour after takeoff. Meal when it eventually came was worst I've ever had in First or Business, and worse than many I've had in Economy."
Pros: "they lost my luggage"
Pros: "Crew was responsive"
Cons: "I didn't like the extra 2 hour lay over in Ethiopia."
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"
