Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "All the flights were on time."
Pros: "Comfy plane"
Cons: "Food so so in economy"
Pros: "United crew"
Cons: "Weather. Maybe toss us free WiFi for making us sit on the tarmac for nearly 2 hours"
Pros: "Good flight, decent crew. Food was okay."
Cons: "My entertainment set didn't work because the headphone jack was broken so that was a major bummer."
Pros: "Flight attendant was pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Food options ok. Minor problem with gate upon arrival to Chicago. Problem resolved in 10 min"
Cons: "No WiFi functioning so nothing to do for five hours when you counted on having WiFi. Now I will always bring a book"
Cons: "Missed All connecting flights because plane was delayed 5 hours at place of origin thanks to United Airlines. Needed an "O ring" for maintenance. A very simple part yet had to locate one in another city. Very poor. Wasted 1 day. Went back home. Rebooked for tomorrow. $20 meal voucher. Pathetic."
Pros: "The service on the non stop flight United Airlines from San Francisco to Osaka was excellent."
Cons: "I wish there could be more movies about nature on the entertainment network."
Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."
Pros: "None, Zero..."
Cons: "I did not like how we were treated by the United Airline Crew front desk when we were getting our boarding pass, they immediately say that due to myself having a Philippine Passport and A US Green Card holder they needed to check with Japan Immigration and in the end of waiting they said that we can’t board the plane because of my citizenship status and I needed to get a Japan VISA, I felt discriminated for something I do not know about when I purchased the tickets via online it doesn’t even show if there were any requirements needed in order for me to travel to Japan. My overall Review is a big ZERO and Unsatisfactory of how they treat their customers."
Pros: "Fast and easy check-in. Attentive service. Good food. Great wine. Speedy baggage service."
Cons: "TSA absolutely sucks at LGA. TSA shut down all lanes except Precheck for a crew switch, and I almost missed my flight! Awful. Someone should be fired for causing the delay today. Everyone was angry and stressed out."
Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."
Cons: "The fight to flint was canceled last night beacuse they had no captian. What the heck!!! My mom is a senior citizen and the last thing she needed to be doing was schlepping all of her things to and from the airport in fridged temps. She’s battling a major cough and is now so exhausted!! This is totally unacceptable...not to have a captian?!???! Please respond as to how I will be reimbursed or what I can do to feel satisfied."
Cons: "refer to the comment above-Due to the bad experience on the initially take off , we felt that things went wrong and not so smooth on the first day. This really hurt our feeling and ruined our trip. Please share this information with United Airline. Passenger: Siu Yuk Chan, Eric Ming Chan and Cody Yutung Chan"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 plane was very nice. The window shading control is unique!"

Pros: "787 is starting to show its age but efficient and comfortable 3 3 3 seating. Reasonable as you can expect crew., do the minimum required."
Cons: "Entertainment systems have dated material, too censored, required resets mid flight. Food was abysmal to say the least."
Cons: "Not enough food for such a long flight"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and entertainment was ok"
Cons: "In a 12 hrs journey only two meager meals were provided."
Pros: "The complimentary meals were good and I wasn't given too much. The flight attendants were very friendly and polite (and it was amusing to listen to how the English and Japanese pilot announcements differed, since the culturally-expected tones are WAY different.)"
Cons: "It was kind of hard to sleep on the plane. I ended up propoing up the armrest next to me and leaning my pillow against it, which sort of did the trick. My hips hurt from sitting so long, so maybe there's some kind of cushion technology that can help with that."

Pros: "Excellent flight!"
Pros: "It was just fine."

Pros: "This united flight was overbooked and crowded due to end of holiday season. But it was managed well. Got a great in flight entertainment and comfortable seats. Crew was very friendly and helpful. It was almost like flying international minus the lunch. Baggage was also handled well."
Cons: "Temperature inside was a bit weird. It felt hot some times and later it felt cold and then hot again."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Quick flight time."
Cons: "The crew seemed so much less friendly on this flight, however they got the job done. I was scolded for having a carry on with me, although I did notice there was still a portion of overhead space that was unused.

We sat on the runway for 45 min. There was an open seat in row 1 that I could have been seated in, but no one offered"
Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."
Pros: "Great flight crew. Liked the pre-laid out boarding group lines."
Cons: "TV screen advertising got annoying. Seat was not very comfortable (although definitely not the worst either)."

(I was so grateful to have a mom~type take care of me, on a long flight.) Thank You!!!"
Cons: "The lack of space - in the isles AND in between the seats in front of us. Anytime the person in front of me wanted to recline their seat, it made it hard for me to even get out and go to the bathroom. That was not pleasant."
