Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Enough space between seats"
Cons: "Very little food"
Cons: "Flight was late due to mechanical issues. Couldn’t exit the plane in Chicago bc of JetWay malfunction."
Pros: "Flight was calm and arrived early"
Cons: "Odd seat rows are cramped. Food was below average. Dry salmon and chicken. Flight attendants were barely visible. My seat did not work properly"
Pros: "Loved the food. Great for flash frozen and then microwaved. Service was excellent, much better than the going flight."
Pros: "The crew was attentive and professional"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The entertainment options were not that broad. Music for instance was only podcast?!"
Cons: "I understand sometimes there are problems with gates once a plane lands, but an hour on the tarmac waiting to get into a gate is ridiculous. Pay up to have gates available for your aircraft. We have choices when flying. If you disrespect the customer's time, we take our business elsewhere. Also, having the customer do everything from tagging our baggage and automated check-in at the airport should reflect in the price we pay for a flight. Instead, you make us do all the work and keep prices the same."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, instead of a direct flight back, we had to go to Munich and then fly to LA"
Pros: "The actual flight was great, employees on the plane were very friendly"
Cons: "We missed flight by 5 minutes and employees were not helpful at all. We had to stay the night in Houston due to this fact and caught a flight out the next morning. The employees were all ready to get off work and left w/o helping us."
Cons: "Our plane was United, so I don't think this reflects on Lufthansa, but rather United. The plane entertainment was extremely outdated and there was not enough room in the overhead containers for everyone's carry-ons. This problem made boarding a very long and aggrevating process."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Pros: "The London based crew: attentive, kind, relaxed, sympathetic and very professional in a relaxed fashion."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the rest adequate. Since all airlines cahoot to have same prices the choice for the passenger is quality and United does not offer a great deal on that subject."
Pros: "The international flights were fine."
Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice,"
Cons: "Seats are much too cramped. Even for economy seat, it is difficult to move."
Pros: "Entertainment via the phone was nice First meal was okay with pasta and bread Facilities were clean Power source below seat was good"
Cons: "Entertainment via plane monitors was bad Sound for entertainment via plane monitors kept breaking up Second meal with a turkey sando and chips was bland Seats weren't comfortable No internet provided"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great"
Cons: "Seating in cabin is horribly tight"
Pros: "Customer service was very good and the attendants went out of their way to make the passengers as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "Plane was extremely old and did not have tv's in the consoles. Very painful to take a 12 hour flight with minimal entertainment. The wifi was not working so could not even use the personal device entertainment. Definitely felt like the airline did not value the customers or our comfort."
Pros: "Thumbs-up to the flight attendant who filled my metal water bottle to the top."
Cons: "I needed to work on this flight but never got online. Disturbingly, I pressed the flight attendant button twice to ask why unitedwifi.com was "unable to handle this request" for so long, but no one came to my seat. Much later, when the food cart came by, the attendant at the front told the other one to reset my light. The second one then asked if I had a question -- but didn't know what the wifi problem was. Hours later I did manage to get onto unitedwifi.com and learned that it's impossible to connect to using Chrome. Why did the crew not know this?! Then I was confronted with the $20 price tag to get on the internet. I started to pay, but the transaction took so long to complete that I realized it would be pointless to connect if that was the speed I could expect."
Cons: "The dinner, Thai Chicken Curry, contained nuts. Nobody communicated that to the passengers. I ate the Curry, not knowing there were nuts in the dish - I am allergic to nuts. Spent much of the flight feeling sick, being physically sick, feeling ill and not being able to think about anything else. After reading the Curry container cover, it did say the dish contained nuts. But the flight staff, I think, should have communicated this. Also who puts a dish with nuts in it on a plane, with all the allergies that passengers could have? I was not going to die from the experience, but some people are more allergic than I am. I think this choice of menu was very inappropriate."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses served us well."
Cons: "The plane was an older one, and the overhead storage spaces were small."
Pros: "The check in process was very fast and efficient"
Pros: "iwheelchair and cart to get to my plane because of a knee injuryhad a wheelchair or cart to get me through the airport"
Pros: "Pilots kept us well informed Flight arrived early Staff were very nice"
Cons: "The 757-200 is a small older plane for such a premium route of London to NY. Conditions felt cramped. The 767 going the other way was much more pleasant with the extra aisle for stretching your legs. The main meals were not nice, pasta options were not appetizing at all."
Pros: "The plane flew."
Cons: "We must have had the oldest plane in the fleet. Small screen entertainment with cycling channel movies, not individual choice ... And my screen did not even work. Uncomfortable seating. Poor meal choice. Service was average, some of the staff seemed to be doing the best they could with what they were given. Some didn't seem to try at all. Why is United so far behind any other sta Star"
Cons: "Had a passenger next to me who kept trying to elbow me the arm rest when I was sleeping."
Pros: "Good price. Good service."
Cons: "Ground staff was racist. Standards vary depending the color."
Cons: "Kayak suckssssssssss"
Pros: "The stewardesses wee attentive. Liked my other passengers around me."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. The seat did not feel any larger for $189 extra! The internet never stated on for a longer period of time"
Pros: "enough leg room (I'm 5'10") vegetarian dish was delicious many choices of new movies alcoholic beverages were good"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled, we did not receive an email or text. We found out when we reached the Heathrow airport. We got booked on another flight, with 6 hour layover. When the flight that got cancelled was a direct flight. Then our luggage was not put on the connecting flight, we got our luggage 24 hours later."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Waited half an hour to take off"
Pros: "The flight attendants were attentive and polite."
Pros: "Good movies, empty seats so i could stretch out."
Cons: "The crew was nice! But a little awkward. The food was kind of bad."
Pros: "Boarding was swift, seat was fine, service was pleasant, flight was uneventful."
Cons: "Entertainment system was a tiny, pixelated screen playing a few movies on loop. Felt like it was 20 years old. Food was fine, but the pre-landing snack was a very greasy, ham and cheese on pretzel roll sandwhich."
Cons: "Crew was rude and did not reply to my call button when I rang it 3 times. Boarding was confusing. Instructions to get your passport checked before your zone boarded was not clear. Boarding agents were pleasant, but onboard crew was rude."
Pros: "The crew both ways were professional and hard working."
Cons: "The flight was a code share with United. Seats were ridiculously cramped in economy. Perhaps this is the new normal--I haven't flown internationally in a while. Food was just ok. I was disappointed that I was not flying Air New Zealand since that was part of the reason I booked this flight."
Pros: "Stewards were great."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 40 minutes before taking off and 45 minutes before we docked and get off the plane...."
Cons: "Wifi was atrocious and I spent $16.99 on it. No one was manning the jet bridge so after we took off 2 hours late we had another delay of 15 minutes on the arrival. Our late takeoff was due to some plane issue, we missed our window and got held up by traffic control. Weather was perfect. All UAL fault."
Cons: "Flew on 747 not as comfortable and enjoyable as the dreamliners."
Pros: "Attendants handled everything well!"
Pros: "There really wasn't anything good about this flight!"
Cons: "We were delayed about 4 hours leaving, first delayed, then cancelled, then reinstated with a stop in Chicago so switch crew. The plane's AC didn't work on the ground so it was hot while we sat there. Arrived in SFO about 8-9 hours late, missed all connecting flights home and then they wanted us to spend the night. It was less than a 2 hour drive home so I ended up renting a car and doing that!"
Pros: "The service when flight was cancelled"
Cons: "The flight being cancelled"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Major delay resulted in arriving one day later than planned, additional transportation cost, unplanned, and unplanned parking fees. No travel voucher was offered and when I asked was told it was not possible to issue a travel voucher."
Cons: "Boarded a full flight without the APU working. It was warm in Denver that evening. It was repaired. I think we could have waited it out in the terminal."
Cons: "They boarded the plane when they knew they had mechanical issues. Passengers then sat on a hot plane at the terminal for almost 2 hours before departing."
Cons: "The very very long delay"
