Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."

Cons: "Seats too small tight uncomfortable. Boarding without a jetway uncomfortable."
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Pros: "The ground crew were very courteous but I feel they were not being completely honest regarding the delays. It felt like we were being given false hope that the flight was taking off soon."
Cons: "We were boarded thinking we were taking off soon. Except the delay continued for another hour and a half I found out. I had exited the plane having been given the option of staying in Gainesville in a hotel provided by the airline and being booked on a flight the next day."
Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"
Pros: "Boarding was average. Cabin crew was very nice and attentive when needed. Flight was on-time. Luggage arrived quickly and unharmed."

Pros: "Pleasant flight crew!!"
Pros: "The seats seem to be shrinking. The flight was flawless."

I paid $1500 for the ticket and even when another airline was going to fly me to catch the second leg they denied me. This was my worst experience, I have missed flights before and I get rebooked pay some fee but I still get to my destination. I missed an opportunity to pay last respect to my dad. I’m so very disappointed"

The airport is 1-1/2 hours from my house. They inconvenience me by handling my baggage like an ape and then continue to inconvenience me by requiring me to go way out of my way to get it repaired. American Airlines apparently does not understand what customer service means."

Cons: "You wouldn't let me change my flight so I didn't even take it"
Pros: "The price was fair and the flights were on time."

Cons: "The flight on the way west was awful. It left Albany almost two hours late making me miss my connection to LA. At Newark airport the next two flights were overbooked so United put me up in a hotell The next morning the first two flights were overbooked but they put me on the third flight. That was supposed to come into LAX a half hour early but a passenger became very ill so they landed in Des Moines for the medical emergency. I realize that wasn't United's fault, but I don't think it should have taken so long to take off, and we were well over an hour late upon arrival."
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled because connection was missed due to United"
Cons: "FAT to LAX not one word from the flight deck explaining the delay in our delayed pushback and take off"

Pros: "Staff at Fresno Airport was helpful and informative."
Cons: "A six hour delay caused us to rent a car to drive from Fresno to LA. Once we were on our way and after 3 hours or so, the delay was reduced so that we theoretically could have made connections - but it was too late. We made it driving - but we had to eat the cost of the car rental."
Pros: "Heavy Hispanic woman got ill and I was really worried she might pass away because she kept laying forward asleep or passed out on the back of the seat in front of her. Finally they found a doctor who was bilingual and he took great care of her. So bravo for that UA!"
Cons: "Heavy Hispanic woman got ill and I was really worried she might pass away because she kept laying forward asleep or passed out on the back of the seat in front of her. Finally they found a doctor who was bilingual and he took great care of her. So bravo for that UA!"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay!"
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Cons: "Was not informed that there was a required 30 minute check in and was given incorrect information about what time the airport opened. Causing us to miss our flight and purchase new tickets at an extra $620, whereas I believe it should have been a free adjustment. I will never use united or kayak again."
