Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "For being a red-eye flight, it was very annoying to have some of the crew members in the back carrying on and laughing very very loudly."
Pros: "Excellent crew, really liked large overhead bin capacity on this 737-800, and excellent boarding."
Cons: "United apparently insists on making entertainment available only through its United app and personal devices. That may be OK for lots of passengers, but we prefer the entertainment options available on almost every other airline that flies internationally and long distance domestic flights."
Cons: "Didn't realize when we booked our seats that they were basic economy and we couldn't upgrade or change them. I was seated away from my husband, beside a very large man who hugged the armrest and munched loudly on corn chips. For 5 hours. Movie headphones were poor. No leg room and I'm 5'4", 125 lbs."
Pros: "The cabin crew was horrible. When serving refreshments during the flight, I was ignored repeatedly when I asked for a soda. My wife sitting next to me, and the other passenger on our row were served. I asked the flight attendant 5 times for a drink and never received it."
Cons: "fire the flight attendant, and find somebody who cares for their customers."
Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."
Pros: "gate agent helped to get me on a flight at LAX just made it an extra 10 hours"
Cons: "not cancel my flight"
Cons: "First class seat and it barely reclined at all"
Pros: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"
Pros: "quick fast and no nonsense, nothing to worry about on a 30 minutes. Hawaiian gets you there fast and mostly on time."
Pros: "Met chief pilot at Wendy’s before flight. He was friendly and gave us confidence"
Cons: "The seats were too close together and very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The plane took of and arrived safely and on time. The entertainment was decent."
Cons: "1/2 bag of pretzels for a ~6 hour flight? Are you kidding me! The whole ride was sweltering hot. United flight attendants almost universally hate their jobs and they let it show. The entertainment system takes up half of the room under the seat, as if things weren’t cramped enough already."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Hard, uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "We boarded the plane and due to "mechanical problem", we sat on the tarmac for ~3 hours before departing. This led to missing our connection at LAX and then missing our connection in ORD to State College tacking 6 extra hours to the trip. The late arrival and full work schedule the next day left me exhausted and got a nasty cold as a consequence. I find the frequency of mechanical problem delays to be high and increasing."
Pros: "Smooth easy flight."
Cons: "The only real downside was seat 22D headphone jack was broken so it made for a long flight but I played some games."
Pros: "Fun introduction of crew and local trivia sets the time for an enjoyable flight."
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Despite a slight delay in take off the flight landed on time; crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Couldn't get a seat assignment until I arrived at the gate; boarding was slow and a little disorganized; seats are small"
Pros: "Crew on board"
Cons: "We sat on the plane for almost an hour before takeoff. We actually sat so long that they did the safety demonstration twice. It was absurd. Mistakes happen, but my overall trip must have fallen in the unlucky category. I'll continue to use kayak, but I'll be reluctant to book United Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing compared to the part condiucted by ANA."
Cons: "Lacking in patience. Use of negative body language on passengers."
Cons: "Made me take off sweater out of my bag cause my bag was 0.5 lbs over weight."
Pros: "Generally, a good flight experience. The crew were polite and professional."
Pros: "Got me home."
Cons: "Everything, see prior comments on Des Moines to Denver flight."
Cons: "It was freezing on the flight no blankets. A lot of turbulence and a very hard landing. Not pleasant at all."
Pros: "Boarding was as it should be. The flight crew were friendly and did their jobs well."
Cons: "Two of the movie screens in our row were broken. The seats are rediculously tight. Leg room is terrible."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Had to land in Austin due to weather. Fueled up and flew back to Houston. I made the flight to tucson with 20 min to spare."
Pros: "Good service. Friendly"
Cons: "Plane change from lie down seats to regular. Intermittent sound on TV. Only movies & not very good. Attendant spilled water on me & iPad filling glass for window passenger. Seat reclinred but needed to be manually pulled upright. Not very good value for 1st class ticket price."
Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "No food. Just some peanuts"
Pros: "I like how courteous the attendants were."
Cons: "We had many delays with the system down. We ended up in lines at the airport for nearly 3 hours. Also, it would have been nice to be given food for that long of a flight."
Pros: "I really appreciate them getting us there safely the crew was fine and it was nice to have tvs on each seat complimentary it really helps having something else to take you away mentally when physically your crammed together and it's really not comfortable or pleasant. I think the staff and crew were just fine though it's just flying has gotten to be something I don't enjoy and want to avoid as much as possible it's that way with most airlines though I think her blue is a little better on seat space and usually always has the tvs but yeah they are limited where they fly and it I is just expensive and uncomfortable to fly I think."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and expensive."
Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"
Pros: "Getting to Rome on time"
Cons: "It took to long to board the flight"
Cons: "Heavily delayed, kept getting later"
Pros: "We were diverted to Austin due to weather. We had to refuel and we were stuck on the Tarmac for over an hour. While all of this was miserable, the Crew stayed active answering questions. The Captain gave several updates and walked the aisle. They even let people off the plane who were trying to get to Austin. For a bad situation this crew made it so much better!"
Cons: "Weather, but what can you do about that?"
Cons: "TSA agaent at New Orlleans airport was very RUDE"
Pros: "Quick loading and easy flight"
Cons: "Little cramped on the smaller plane."
Pros: "Another normal flight."
Cons: "Check in troubles. Couldn't check in online. Agents had some trouble locating our reservations. Security was a lengthy process. Big brother type operation going through customs."
Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"
Pros: "I'm not a frequent flyer so I can only compare to my 2 United trips (1 last year and the most recent) but the experience was great. Thanks"
Pros: "Efficient Boarding"
Cons: "No in seat Video. Free entertainment promised did not work on my laptop."
Cons: "My husband, sister, brother-in-law and myself flew into STL. We thought we had booked the same flight but when we got there found out our departure flight was different. We asked about moving them to our floght but it was over booked so we asked if we could move to there flight. They had 15 open seats. They told us no. There would be a charge of 500 dollars if we wanted to change. We decided to just fly out first and meet them there. We stood by the counter to speak about meeting. As we did we could hear them telling the next couple that they would have to move to the later flight. It was a huge problem for them as they would miss there connection. We then offered again to take the later flight so they could take our place on the over booked flight and make there connection. They where unwilling. Then we get on the flight and the plane was nasty and dirty. We put out tray table down and there was drink and dirt all over it. When asked if they could be cleaned we got an attitude. They never came back to do it. Luckily I had a wet wipe to do it. The plan smelled like urine. Same was true for our return flight. The plane was very old and not taken care of. This is not the first problem is we have had with United. We will not be flying with them any longer."
Pros: "Chairs were comfortable on this plane"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Cramped seating and you had to pay for entertainment."
