Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was pretty nice"
Cons: "My toddler wasn’t issued a ticket like he should have been so it ended up taking me a long time to check in. I had to sit next to another passenger with a toddler on my lap. Multiple rows had 3 passengers."
Pros: "Great crew! Super friendly! Thanks for making my flight a great one!"
Pros: "Entertainment is great and the crew is always super friendly"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1 hour on the tarmac"

Cons: "Flight was canceled and I was left stranded."
Pros: "Crew was accommodating."
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Cons: "Tight seats, no access to actual WiFi unless you purchase a yearly or monthly plan"
Pros: "With the amount of bad press that United has, I did not expect much. However, flight was on time, everybody was polite, movie selection was excellent (several classics, box office hits, comedies etc, they even appropriately put "Die hard" under Winter Wonderland), food was good and salted caramel ice cream for dessert was a very nice touch."
Cons: "Tiny seats. My God, would it hurt to have TWO arm rests? I ended up sitting for 8h crooked to the right, just to avoid touching the guy beside me."
Cons: "Pilot calls in sick and the plan b is wait 4 hours"
Pros: "Girl at boarding counter. Male steward. Very nice."
Cons: "Female stewardess over hour late had to wait for her. And she didn’t even smile when she finally arrived. Couldn’t be bothered. Rude and disrespectful to people."
Pros: "The credit was polite, hat was about it"
Cons: "We were delayed coming out bc the plane needed de-icing... IN JACKSONVILLE, but they were unable to get manager approval for de-icing and then the truck was out of fuel. Finally, the pilot moved the plane into the sun (which should have happened much sooner). During the flight, the cabin temperature dropped to low 60s and everyone was freezing."
Cons: "2 hour delay sitting on the airplane!!!"
Pros: "Waffle cookies were amazing"
Cons: "leg room is ridiculous unfriendly attendants"
Cons: "Seat was really hard and hurt to sit on after the first hour. Even had trouble sleeping it was so bad."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Direct Flight & Affordable"
Cons: "Zero Complaints"
Pros: "ON TIME,"
Cons: "BASIC ECOMONY PASSENGERS ARE INCONVIENCED AT AIRPORT, WE WERE NOT PERMITTED TO CHECK IN ONLINE AND GET PRINT BOARDING PASSES. HAD TO GO TO AIRPORT TO CHECK IN FIND A BETTER WAY WITHOUT INCONVENCING PASSENGERS.....(AS USUAL)"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant!"
Cons: "The food was absolutely horrible!"
Cons: "When comparing flights between only United flights, the economy & economy plus categories are a distraction. Especially if you are traveling with more than two people. When comparing across airlines, it is annoying because you have to add back costs that the "other" airline include in their price. In the future I am going to compare all "other" flights without United and then check United as the "low cost provider"."
Pros: "Smooth and efficient"
Cons: "no snacks!!!"
Pros: "nice and easy boarding, good customer relations"
Pros: "I like flying and window seats"
Cons: "There is nothing I can do about it, but the distance between seats is really cramped."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delays the entire trip for no discernible reason."
Cons: "No room for bags"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, unlike the people at the ticket and gate counters."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by nearly two hours, causing me to have to miss my connection. Though they knew for hours that the flight would be delayed, they did not have enough people working at the check in counters. There were not that many people in line, but I had to wait more than 20 minutes before being able to speak to someone. The representative informed me that I would have to be rebooked onto a later connection because the delay would cause my to miss my original connecting flight, and when I told her that I needed an earlier time to avoid missing a meeting, she just said "I have nothing earlier." She was barely even apologetic. Then she was unable to print my boarding pass for my connection. I had a 2 hour and 45 minute layover in Houston whereas in my original flight it was 1 hour."
Pros: "Frequent communication about the issue to keep passengers updated. Flight crew and gate boarding support were excellent"
Cons: "Plane's tire needed to be replaced. I was irritated because at one point they were saying they needed to fly a tire into JAX which seems ridiculous. They ended up finding a tire once the day shift arrived. I would have expected inspections of planes after flights and for basic replacement parts to be located across their network."
Cons: "4 hour delay. Maintenance issue. We were told Only one maintenance person covering the entire airport"
Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "I paid extra for an economy plus seat and they gave it away. I had to sit in a middle seat."
Pros: "All went very smoothly. Even arrived early"
Pros: "Thumbs up"
Pros: "The planes were small which were fine because there was still enough leg room.."
Cons: "Sears could be a little wider not everyone is small frame"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was pleasant and friendly."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Excellent, on time flight. The only issue I have is people boarding t the back and leaving their luggage in front. We almost didn't have room to stow our luggage. This shouldn't be allowed."
Pros: "Being able to use a digital boarding pass."
Cons: "On my outbound trip my connecting flight changed gates. There was no notice from United or on the terminal monitors. United sent me a text saying my connecting flight had departed already, but when I got to the gate a representative brusquely informed me the flight was departing from the other end of the terminal."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "The departure was late. There was no explanation nor apology. As a long term and faithful Alaska Airlines customer I was shocked that a plane would not leave on time and act like it was par for course. Ehhh so what? I'm an older woman and needed help with my overhead luggage. The very young male attendant saw me struggling and just said that is not going to fit and walked toward the front of the plane. No offer to help whatsoever. The plane was small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "United did not service the final destination so they transferred luggage to another airline and then washed their hands of it. When one of4 remained lost they did not help at all!"
Pros: "I eventually made it to Hawaii."
Cons: "Flight was delayed >8 hours. Had to change flights with a late departure and more layovers. Took over 24 hours to get there. Ridiculous."
Cons: "No snacks offered on the plane"
Pros: "They boarded is quickly"
Cons: "Plane was delayed on runway for over an hour. When the passenger next to me asked the lead flight attnd about her connecting flight the attnd was extremely rude and of no help. Any ? was answered with "well just look at your united airways app". Then later I asked what gate we were coming in on and her reply was "the capt just said it". I replied saying "sorry I didn't hear it" and again the flight attnd answered "look on your UA app". I don't usually fly UA so I didn't have it. Overall she was short, snarky and rude with ever reasonable question asked. No one was rude to her but her attitude was shocking. I travel quite often and have never seen an antd speak or act this way to passengers. I understand things get stressful, but I def won't be flying UA again if this is the way they allow flight attnds to speak to customers. She way beyond rude and lazy and I hope the girl she was training doesn't pick up those traits either."
Pros: "This was the most smoothest overall trip I have ever had flying! I loved the new plane (from JAX) and the leg room since I'm 6'5 and it was very comfortable. Everyone involved in the process were very professional as well."
Pros: "Excellent service, amazed that on flight attendant was capable of serving everyone on the flight."
Cons: "A tight fit for seats, luckily it was short trip. I tried hard not to spill over in the other person seat. The arm rest did not help, made it worse."
Pros: "No entertainment. Water and assorted chips were fine."
Cons: "Plane very nice. Good leg and seat space."
