Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Made up time on delayed flight. Friendly, efficient and helpful."
Pros: "I was comfortable and it went by smoothly"
Cons: "The remote is on the arm rest and the girl next to me kept elbowing it and it would turn on even though i turned it off. Not her fault but the fault of the airline."
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Cons: "Meals, better service, didn't provide me with a wheel chair as I'm pregnant and had my nine months old daughter with me. Very bad experience."
Pros: "Good crew, good and safe flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Pros: "Once on board, everything was great."
Cons: "The gate was crowded, and it was difficult to hear gate announcements. Everyone was confused unless they'd been there before. The gate assignment is confusing to everyone considering you go through the same door."
Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
Pros: "Food was actually pretty good."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was broken my entire flight and my husband's was broken for a portion of it. It looked like the screen was seizing and I couldn't turn off the screen. The flight attendant tried restarting it multiple times but there was no other troubleshooting to fix it."

In the future I will always try to book United."
