Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Delayed for hours for seemingly no reason"
Pros: "Great take off and landing. My ears were not even plugged up after landing. Great piloting skills by the crew."
Pros: "I thought the process of board was excellent and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The shuttle driver was confused on what plane to go to and lots of steps."
Cons: "not enough baggage space for cary-ons"
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Could have had a polite crew, ran on time, or had internet that lasted more than 10 minutes after I paid for it. I'll never fly united again."
Cons: "The seats to close ,tv did not work"
Cons: "Airport staff rudest I’ve ever seen. Terminals extremely close together and over crowded."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the food choices were great. I enjoyed several hours of dimmed lighting, which helped with sleeping and kept my five year old daughter calm. The staff were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "One irritation was that the temperature of the plane was too cold and we have a/c blowing in our faces most of the trip. We couldn't control it from our overhead fans, so we were a bit chilly."
Pros: "Amazing flight amazing service."
Cons: "Nothing everything was amazing."
Pros: "We did not crash. Eventually we got to our destination."
Cons: "All flights were awful. None were on time. I paid for economy plus aisle seat but was put in economy middle seat anyway. Asked for refund and was sent to 3 different people. The final person, a gate agent for my departing gate, Peggy Hunter, told me that she has 35 years experience and she knows everything about United Airlines’ processes. Told me the only way I might get a refund is to submit online but that paying extra for a seat upgrade doesn’t mean I will actually get one and that I should read the fine print on the ticket. Had previously spoken to another gate agent who had told me that I could ask for a refund at the departing gate. Wifi didn’t work. On one of three delayed flights had to beg for water to take my medicine. I will make extra efforts to avoid using this mediocre airline."
Pros: "Friendly gate agents & flight crew. Free entertainment through the United app."
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are very hard making a 3+ hour flight pretty uncomfortable."
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was a little rude."
Pros: "Flight okay"
Cons: "Lost my baggage"
Pros: "I only flew united because it was the cheapest I found for my flight at the time I booked it."
Cons: "My seat 3 of the 4 of my connecting flight seats were broken and could not recline. I could smell urine coming from the bathroom from my seat while waiting for people to board(3 hrs of urine smell will ruin any flight experience). The internet did not work coming back from Central America so if you don't have the entertainment app already on your phone, you couldn't watch any tv since you can't even download the app. Other airlines normally have a monitor so their customers can watch tv and not stain their eyes looking at their phone. But with United, if you don't get beat up the airline, its considered a win."
Pros: "The flight attendants were pretty nice."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour and a half while we waited for 'paperwork'. The captain kept trying to make it seem like our fault for missing our connections because we didn't have longer layovers in O'Hare. I barely made my connection. I know other people did not."
Cons: "I want to clarify that I boough tiquests with Lufthansa not with United... and I had to travel United most of the time to Africa and Bach to the USA... united socks terrible ... bad food and old plain to cross the Atlantic... besides the service and the bad actitude of the employees... when I travel international I want only Lufthansa. So, kayak you tricked me ....horribly!"
Pros: "Very attentive flight crew"
Pros: "Boarding to the United, was smoth"
Cons: "Menu; Menu selection was none except for a sandwich. The crew was not friendly at all. Courteous by doing their work, but not friendly and welcoming at all."
Cons: "First flight has delayed from Atlanta to Houston,after that all the contact flight has massed up."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. A three hour flight felt like five. WiFi not working"
Cons: "Very limited free entertainment"
Cons: "2 hours late for departure. Female flight attendant was not understandable on the announcements, because of her lack of English skills and she did not know how to use the PA system."
Cons: "Seats are crammed up against each other and little leg room plus I am short!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Why do all the employees at United try to make you feel like your "putting them out" whenever you ask them anything. I have never experienced how an entire company can walk around with a chip on their shoulder. No life-threatening we are done."
Cons: "Airline staff was misleading. When we left Costa Rica hours late and all missed our connections, the staff in San Jose assured us we would be compensated and put up in hotels. This was not the case, and I ended up spending over 30 hours sitting in airports to get from San Jose to Boston, including an entire night in the Houston airport."
Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."
Pros: "Late boarding, ZERO ENTERTAINMENT when you can pay the same price for American that provides television, old uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Still sitting at the airport. Flight delayed :("
Cons: "The guy putting his feet on me next to the window"
Pros: "The passenger next to the window."
Cons: "The passenger on the aisle."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "It was on time, the landing was beautiful!!"
Cons: "Selection of snacks were not appealing."
Cons: "Young flight attendant, with dark hair, red lips, and glasses, was kind of rude. I am a small woman and had issues getting my bag in the overhead bin. There was a line forming and she stared at me until I asked for help. She just seemed really annoyed."
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Pros: "Not at all, crew over fueled the plane and delayed for 1 1/2 hours"
Cons: "That I missed my next flight, and no one cared to attend those who were on the Kay over, in Denver Colorado the united customer care was extremely rude to the 6 ppl"
Pros: "Crew was awesome."
Cons: "NO entertainment whatsoever unless you purchased it, $5 is expensive"
Pros: "That we arrived alive"
Pros: "Pilots kept us well informed Flight arrived early Staff were very nice"
Cons: "The 757-200 is a small older plane for such a premium route of London to NY. Conditions felt cramped. The 767 going the other way was much more pleasant with the extra aisle for stretching your legs. The main meals were not nice, pasta options were not appetizing at all."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and attentive. The captain was informative and constantly keeping the passengers updates. The chicken I had was good :) overall I had a good experience."
Cons: "no outlets, no tv, no wifi"
Cons: "Plane was small with very loud engine"
Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."
Pros: "The seating was very good. We "accidentally" were issued seats in bulkhead which gave us plenty of unexpected leg room. Thank you!"
Cons: "For such a long flight there should be complimentary tv/movie viewing but there was not. And the wifi was spotty."
Pros: "What I like the most was that it was on time, also the crew was amicable."
Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"
