Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "Poorly equipped aircraft. No charging stations. No video of any kind. Pitiful food offerings. It's a four hour flight. Gotta do better."
Pros: "The person sitting next to me in the aisle seat moved so I had a window seat and free access to the aisle so I could use the bathroom when I wanted which let me stay hydrated on the plane. This was great. Crew was overall pretty responsive and helpful. Never a line for bathroom"
Pros: "Crew was kind but really bad quality price, bad food, no entertainment, lot of delays..."
Pros: "we left two hours late due to some security mess up. all had to exit, redo security, e.t.c. crew was nice, but info was poor, service to travelers was poor. with 2 hour delay they could have given snacks, drinks. instead the crew mostly disappeared"

Pros: "Cabin crew hospitality and service were amazing"
Pros: "Keeping in mind it was an economy class, I thought the flight was fine. Decent food. I would have preferred some with a heavy cheese sauce. I had gotten sick in Egypt and I felt lousy (dizziness and headache). Despite my physical condition I thought the flight was okay. Crew were professional and airplane was clean. Beer to drink. Other than the fact I was sick, I enjoyed the flight."

Cons: "The business class seats which are a lot more costly than economy seats are no different than economy seats. Same seat and on a 5 hour flight they are awful. The only difference from economy is that the middle seat is left empty....a help toward comfort, but far short especially when the price difference is factored in."

Pros: "Staff was friendly"

Cons: "Online check in didn't work. The site kept telling me I needed a visa although I chose the option that stated I had an ESTA. Also mt destination country was not in the list of countries and there was no way to fill it in. The check- in agent in Cairo was cheeky and unhelpful. I was told I couldn't get the aisle seat assignment that I had selected online when attempting to do the online check in. The crew also stated I couldn't switch to an aisle seat because " we are completely booked" although all 3 rows in front of me had empty aisle seats all the way from Cairo to Frankfurt so I was stuck in a middle seat which the person in front completely reclining their seat for 4 hrs. At 5'10" it was not only uncomfortable but a painful flight. Things improved somewhat from Frankfurt to Miami but was still pretty tight due to the reclining seats. Luckily I got an aisle seat on that leg and the middle seat next to me was open. There was no entertainment on the Cairo to Frankfurt leg."
Cons: "Very small narrow seats in business class on this flight."

I called the website and they didn't help me a all. I had to book a new one way ticket that costed me $1450 I have been using Kayak for 5+ years and I'm very disappointed that I had to deal with such terrible vayma experience!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Bit of turbulence due to weather"
Pros: "Nice airport, but terrible organization"
Cons: "We were directed upstairs when entering the airport, then directed downstairs for a so called faster security location. That line was long, so we were directed to a shorter security TSA pre check by a person who took us back upstairs to a 3rd location that was not signed or marked to be a security check area at all. It said employees. This is a disorganized airport."
Pros: "Pleasant staff. All smiles and very agreeable at the gate and checkin, but..."
Cons: "This new unassigned seat fare that offers the "cheapest rate" also doesn't allow a checked bag. What this means is that you have to do two separate searches to compare the basic economy price and the upgraded economy to see if the difference is less than a checked bag. It makes the booking process unecessarily complicated, so much so that I'm just going to exculde United from the list of airlines when I do a search on one of the aggregators"

Pros: "Comfy plane, ease of connection"
Cons: "Nothing really"

Pros: "On this specific day, flight/s didn't go as planned starting with flight cancellation due to mechanical issues. However, I did eventually arrive."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Second flight overbooked and I was bumped. Put on connecting flight versus direct for third try at getting to destination. Almost bumped again. Finally arrived 10 hrs later."
Pros: "The stewards were nice and they were prompt. The plane seemed to be well cleaned inside and they were quick to get everyone boarded and bags stowed underneath. The pilot knew what he was doing and I had no worries there. Everyone was doing their jobs as well as they could be done."
Cons: "The air nozzle above my seat was broken and would not turn off so I freezing the entire flight, as well as the tray table seeming like it was meant for the lap of an infant versus myself and I can't imagine how someone with longer legs than myself dealt with the way it folded down. The take off was rough either seemingly due to tires or perhaps a rough runway. The wifi on the plane would not work. It worked ok my first flight but not on the second. I don't know why and no one knew why either, had the latest app and it was updated to the current version."
Cons: "Too little time allotted between an international flight to catch the domestic connection. If I had checked my bags I would not have made it through customs and security in time."
Pros: "It was delayed n delayed again it's always a problem"

Pros: "Wifi n t.v. sets"
Pros: "Service on plane, on time"
Cons: "Staff at both Indianapolis and Denver airports were rude and unprofessional. We definitely got stuck in last available middle seats all in separate places on plane...I am guessing this is because we didn't book directly with United because I registered early for our flight."
Pros: "i liked the fact that it was a short trip so i could make my way home from there."
Pros: "Fine. Wish my earlier one wasn't so delayed."
Cons: "Same as the first one"

Pros: "They made up time since the plane left late."
Cons: "The man who was boarding us announced to the whole area that if your ticket says to see him just sit down and wait to be called because he's "getting irritated". Terrible customer service! The crew on the plane acted like they didn't want to be there. They had a ton of empty seats but announced that we can't move up or change unless we pay for it with our credit card. I understand it but it sounded really bad. Not welcoming at all. Will avoid United in the future."
Pros: "Everyone was very accommodating! Thank You."
Pros: "On time and nice attendants"
Cons: "I paid $59 to upgrade to a premium seat and it was terrible with my feet being in the aisle where the service cart rolled"
Cons: "Screaming child the entire 4 hr flight made even the flight attendants angry!"
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."

Cons: "Luggage Lost on 4 Apr after I came to my destination Indianapolis. I reported my lost luggage on the same day at Airport at United airlines office. Its been 10 days and no one has followed up yet on my lost luggage. I have to call United Airlines Customer Care everyday to get a status on my report. No follow up is made on the lost luggage. They have asked to file claim which will also take 8-10 weeks to process. All these experiences has made me and my friends not to prefer United Airlines for Travel."
Cons: "the flight was 2.5 hours late. for no reason that couldn't be resolved much much sooner"
Pros: "I like that the flight was quick and convenient!"
Cons: "There should have been free entertainment considering the short length of the flight. There was no beverage service."
Pros: "The ground crew gave ZERO guidance. Never made announcements. Until they finally told us they found a plane and we would be boarding after safety check. Then announced 10 minutes later flight crew had timed out and flight was canceled."
Cons: "NO COMMUNICATION."
