Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Delays, seat assignment changed, the food"
Pros: "The on-time arrival"
Cons: "Having to check our bags due to lack of overhead space which was announced before anyone boarded the aircraft. Had they provided our bags to us when we exited the plane, or told us in advance that there would be no space and they would be offering free bag check, that would have mitigated the situation. Instead they wait till the last minute costing us valuable time. In the future, they should pay us the 25 dollar bag fee when they arbitrarily make this decision."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Rescheduled on next morning on economy class even though the original tickets booked for business class. No hotel, food voucher, etc. were provided blamed on the weather condition even though the bad weather was 1-2 days ago, and on the day of departure it was air traffic control problems which was stated in cancellation email."
Pros: "Smooth take off and landing"
Cons: "Always quality service, food and plane! My fav!"
Pros: "United hires good people. Flight was comfortable and on-time."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Plane was late and we almost missed our connection in Newark"
Pros: "United service is awful."
Cons: "Wi-fi didn't work (3rd flight this trip). Ran out of cheese plate in the 2nd row... Really? Late departure caused missed connection. Then the customer service agents - if you can call them that -- were downright pathetic, absolutely no effort to deal with the crowds of people who needed help. Finally had to call UA while in line and got booked on another connecting flight to a connecting flight :( and they freaking gave me the wrong gate!"
Pros: "Timely departure. No delay."
Cons: "Seats were small. No wifi on this flight."
Cons: "The boarding process is ridiculous. Takes forever because it is totally irrational and driven by favoritism. Plus they don't enforce the baggage size rules."
Cons: "We did not leave on time"
Cons: "okay because it was short"
Pros: "The crew were nice. and thats it"
Cons: "the choices of food we were given wasnt suitable for dogs, the movies were either boring family comidies or romances, the music has been the SAME for the past 10 years. theres no leg room and the seats are horribly uncomfortable"
Pros: "Susan Smith at check in counter Reagan National was very helpful, kind and service-oriented. I hope you recognize the gem you have."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and gate agents appeared tired, agitated, and unhelpful."
Pros: "Evening flight. Crew wasn't the nicest but they were professional nonetheless. Flight itself was smooth but a bit of a bumpy landing (I think it was a bit windy so not surprised. It is Ch). Not the best flight but certainly not the worst either."
Cons: "DirecTV in-flight entertainment. You pay or you're subjected to constant ads and/or snippets of shows. I'd rather watch one free movie that I can't choose rather than pay to watch bad TV."
Cons: "Cancelled my Son's flight & he missed his TEST the next day."
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "Great flight! comfortable seats even for me being a big guy. The wifi made the flight go by great! The price on the wifi seemed a little excessive but a great convince none the less. I had a sandwich during the flight (like I said I am a big guy) it was better than expected for sure. Crew did there jobs but didn't seem to be happy about it. Overall great flight."
Cons: "A 6:30 pm flight that leaves at 8:15? What is there to like?"
Pros: "They had a free snack."
Cons: "Boarding process is better than some, but stinks compared to Southwest."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac for 30+ min in Washington."
Pros: "Plane was nice and clean."
Cons: "Having to take a shuttle from one terminal to another in Chicago."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Last second gate change. Plane departed and arrived late."
Pros: "Seating. It's a new plane."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving and you lost my luggage. I had $40 of frozen smoke meat on it that spoiled and I had no clothes or anything until 11:00 the next day and there was only one transfer for the luggage to make plus they had extra time because the plane was LATE."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, which caused me to run to catch my connection."
Cons: "Well easier to say what I like. U've got a nice crew at least on our flight, very professional and nice. Other than that, well u have got lots of things to improve"
Pros: "Friendly crew including the airport staff. Quick flight"
Cons: "Tight overhead baggage compartment"
Pros: "I liked the fact that I had a window seat... at the way back. Also that I was at least offered snacks, or whatever was left because they ran out."
Cons: "They ran out of meals and snacks, both paid and free. We all pay a price, yet seats and class determine whether you will get your moneys worth. I guess the point is that I at least made it home."
Cons: "Very cold on flights, no blankets"
Pros: "I love the whole thing about it. The take off was nice and smooth"
Cons: "entertainment system stopped working 1/2 way through flight."
Cons: "It was one of the most horrible flights. Delays, sitting in the plane being really hot, did not offer water. Newaur airport change of terminals is like being in the middle ages, old, hot, no signage, bus steps, Really, reaaly awfulWill think twice before flyinf United again Other than that they got me here, late"
Pros: "Flight attendants were trying hard to assist passengers."
Cons: "There was a malfunction of ventilation system leaving the plane at unsafe temperature on tarmac. Pilot literally screamed at passenger who was inquiring appropriately about allowing us to Deborah the plane."
Cons: "they canceled my flight and couldn't reschedule. I had to pay for a rental car and drive to my destination which has ended up costing me more money and the flight was already very expensive to begin with."
Pros: "The flight I actually took, the next morning, was fine."
Cons: "My connection was to the 10:35 pm flight from SF. My preceding United flight, from Chicago, got in late BUT BEFORE 10:35. Fellow passengers and I dashed to catch this shuttle but it HAD DEPARTED EARLY, even though ticket-holding passengers hadn't yet boarded and shuttle crew should have known we were on a delayed flight that had just landed. This was an expensive decision for United (it had to put 4 passengers up for the night) and very inconvenient for the passengers. AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. This shuttle had no more connecting flights to meet. It could have waited for us or, at least, taken off at its scheduled time."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "It was behind schedule. Cut it very close on making my connection to Dublin."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was oversold and late"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "delay tight sits slow boarding"
Pros: "The Steward was amazing! He was such a sweet man, I really hope to see him on a flight again in the future. He was so silly and personable to everyone, and did fast service as well. Def a 10.0 and made the flight much more enjoyable. Lots of space on this plane because it's so small. It seems counterintuitive but that means there are less people stop it seems less crowded and more spacious."
Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"
Pros: "Your Crew!!!! From the lady who checked me in to the last flight attendant saying thank you for flying with us... you should really be proud of your staff!"
Pros: "The flight was very ontime and very comfortable, I had an excellent experiance with United"
Pros: "The arrival flight that was to be our departure aircraft was late, thus our craft to Chicago arrived late. The arrival gate was miles away from my connecting flight, As a result, I missed boarding and was rebooked with a 5 hour wait in Chicago."
Cons: "See my comments. Furthermore, the gate agent at the flight I missed and rebooked me was rude, aggressive and obviously not suited to human contact. He may have been a better PR employee used in loading luggage into the belly of the plane, thus not having any human contact."
Pros: "Short flight. Food/entertainment N/A"
Cons: "Small seats, delayed for three hours and got in so late!"
