Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Cleanliness of airplane. Vents and tray tables were very dirty"
Pros: "First flight I’ve been on where United airlines has adequate leg room for a tall person. A newish airbus plane. I’ve been avoiding United for a number of years cause their planes tend to be very uncomfortable for taller passengers. This is the seat spacing that all airlines should have."
Pros: "No room. Delays."
Cons: "Board me 1st."
Pros: "Flight was canceled."
Pros: "Hope the flight attendant was awesome. She should be filmed for training videos."
Cons: "Update bathroom. Sinks almost too small to use with the facet type installed. Super gross bumping the sink basin in order to wash hands. Acrobatic feat to get done."
Pros: "I finally got home. An 4-5 hours flight ended 12 hours later."
Cons: "United Airlines sucks. If you can avoid United Airlines you should. They might seem like a better price but what they don’t tell you is they are going to burn your time and waste your money. - They are not accountability for delays or non - delivery of service. Their customer service mantra"
Pros: "United has done a lot to update and modernize their terminals. Easy access to food, charging outlets, comfortable seating, and an open atmosphere made my layover quite pleasant."
Pros: "The cabin was actually warm & toasty...used to it being chilly. Knocked everyone out for the flight. Staff was friendly & professional"
Cons: "It may have been a little too warm."
Pros: "Staff was super friendly and very helpful. They made boarding and the rest of the trip a wonderful experience."
Cons: "The small baby in my row had a hard time adjusting and cried a lot. Can small kids and their parents be seated in a separate area near the east of the plane where they're crying won't be so disruptive?"
Pros: "Food was great"
Cons: "No Wifi even though it was published. No stroop waffles was disappointment"
Cons: "flight delayed by 3 hours. no reason given- effected subsequent schedule..."
Pros: "We arrived in one piece so United did exactly what they offered. The gate crew kept up updated over the 2 hour delay including the gate change."
Cons: "United shouldn't make access to the in-flight entertainment on planes *without* monitors dependent on the customer's personal electronic devices if they don't offer an intranet link that is available to all devices. For example, not all devices also for the download of certain files to java script which is necessary to gain access to the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "The pilot is inexperienced and did not aware early landing more than 30 mins would be undesirable as the assigned gate is still occupied by another plane. Therefore, we were forced to taxi around leading to excessive delay more than 20mins caausing a lot of conencting passengers had to run. The pilot should be retrained"
Pros: "Excellent crew, cabin crew was very friendly, excellent service."
Pros: "Crew was helpful."
Cons: "We were sitting right next to the crew resting area and it was very restricting to us. I had two little kids that I had to keep quiet for about 6 hours out of 8. Even when my kids were quiet, we were reminded twice to keep quiet. It was very restricting and I was forced to walk back and forth with my two year old to keep her quiet so the crew can rest. Why is the crew resting when they are supposed to be working on that flight? The meal quality sucked, I did not finish it, let alone my kids. My kids were prettu much hungry for 8 hrs. Not a very family friendly flight."
Pros: "arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "nothing really. Just a standard, OK, United flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the elbow room from lack of passengers. This was less than an hour long. Everyone was nice onboard this flight."
Cons: "No free internet and flight was to short for food to be served."
Pros: "Food was great."
Cons: "The WiFi was horrible. The provided movies to watch would constantly buffer."
Cons: "Late departure not good with wheelchair disability services"
Pros: "Comfortable all the way."
Cons: "Our flight got cancelled three times before they finally switched us to Delta. We missed an entire 2 days of our vacation that we haven't got reimbursed for. One of the agents that worked for United Airlines put her hands on my friend that I was traveling with and the police got involved. It was an horrible experience and no one was trying to accommodate us for our troubles what's so ever. I will NEVER fly United again. A waste of time and money."
Cons: "I had to be switched to a different airline, arriving 3 hours after I was supposed to I was late to my grandmother's funeral and had the most difficult time even arranging this, as the rep rebooking was adamant about me getting on the next United flight 12 hours later Then, my $310 luggage failed to arrive and I had no clothes to wear to my grandmother's wake. When it did arrive, my suitcase was broken. I tried filing a claim with United and they dismissed it and stated that they were not responsible - a recurring theme from this entire experience"
Pros: "Enjoyed the friendliness of the pilots. As they made my sons day when he was able to go into cockpit and see them. We arrived earlier which helps."
Cons: "Very tight and narrow rows. One of the smallest (jumbo) planes I've been on. Tons of turbulence as well."
Pros: "No entertainment due to short flight"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Terrible. Flight was delayed by an hour. Gate was changed. Only reason I found out was because of email updates. It wasn't announced over the speaker. Although "comping" a film was a nice gesture, it would have been nice if the films started from the beginning. So it was basically pointless. Woman who sat next to me was a train wreck. When the snack/drink carts came around, I asked for a drink it was completely flat and disgusting. Just an overall terrible experience."
Pros: "smooth flight, good service"
Cons: "hold up to board family with 2 much luggage, overhead bins 2 small"
Pros: "It was running on time."
Cons: "The seats were super tiny and cramped! I paid for wifi and had to keep refreshing the whole time and it never really worked at all. I was sort of banking on using that flight to work and now I am late on some deadlines."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Delayed for an excessive amount of time before the flight was finally Cancelled. Got stuck waiting for over 7hrs before the flight was eventually cancelled. Barley made it home in time for my grandfather's funeral as a result."
Pros: "I got another window seat and the refreshments were good."
Cons: "I wasnt able to recline my seat and not much leg room."
Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "Everything went by smoothly, no problems"
Pros: "Everything went fine no problems and it was XMAS eve"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Good service on board."
Cons: "For boarding at the gate, attendant scanned boarding passes at one terminal and asked passengers to board next to another terminal across the room. Anyone could have walked onto the plane without a boarding pass, which seems to be a security concern. It felt as if I was seated over the rear wheels of the plane. During taxi and takeoff, there was an irregular bump that made a noise and vibrated the plane every second or so, and sped up as the plane sped up. I was concerned that something was the matter with the tire or wheel."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable for bigger guys and no source of entertainment"
Pros: "Our names are Steve and Jan Hovde if you have any other questions about our flight concerns. We can be reached by phone at 360-332-8414. We did not call FAA, but still very much a concern. We have flown United other times and many other airlines and many Boeing 737's...we noticed other passengers looking at each other because of the clunking and growling sounds."
Cons: "most important I vowed I would try and call FAA about safety concerns with the plane. Mechanical noises prior to take off , during flight(right fan whine) - could hear it when started engines in SF., Some loud clunking at take off bringing in landing wheels and again letting down for landing in Seattle. When plane came to stop at the gate, again some noises we have never heard before on 737's. Please check out that plane more closely. Part of our concern is that Pilot mentioned before take off that they had problems with scheduled 737 and they needed extra time to locate another 737 that could be used(Why our take off was rescheduled twice and different gate)......it seemed that one that had been mothballed may have been brought out to use......We did mention some of this tactfully to stewardess' standing near exit when we got off the plane(She seemed surprised and wondered what we were talking about. We were so thankful we made it. We just figured that flight crew would be tracking these odd noises and pass along to captain if he couldn't hear."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Was assigned a middle seat. Tried to change it, but was not willing to pay $75 to do so."
Pros: "Ticket agent got us on a Delta flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for more than 3 hours. The plane had technical difficulties... But the delay was sooo long."

Cons: "Not to comfy."
Pros: "Covered the required distance in time"
Cons: "Need individual TV screens. No one came for "Call to attendent" button for 30mins. i canceled it . Just needed water. United and Lufthansa need to look at Singapore airlines. They operate very professionally."
Cons: "No good snacks to even pay for didn't have time to stop and eat in the airport"
Cons: "This flight was also delayed and changed departure time three times. This was the worst flight ever."
Pros: "Crew was great and quiet flight"
Cons: "No wifi or video system on plane"
Cons: "Everything was horrible. The fried noodles that they served was too soggy. The crew was understaffed but it won't justified their bad service. I called twice and noone came to helped. They had a young Asian male flight attendant that was flirting with other 2 guy passengers. But when other passengers approached him he wasn't very nice at all, he had this unpleased face all the time, It was hot and we couldn't connect to the internet. It was just horrible. Sucks paying so much for a very bad service."
Pros: "Flights were on time, no delays."
Cons: "Three hour Houston delay; I accepted a change in scheduled flights with less delays and $300 compensation, but the offer was withdrawn without explanation. And had to switch seats in the first leg to redistribute weight."
Pros: "I liked the friendly smiles everywhere. I was lucky to score a window seat with no one in the middle."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to pay $25 to check one bag and the Wi-fi didn't work all flight."
