Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The paid food choices are rather odd."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Horrible service at Newark. Delta and Airport staff directed me to A terminal with my luggage. Waited in line for 1 hr only to be asked to go back and send my checked luggage then go back in the same line for another 20 minutes. Utter disregard to customers. Very rude staff."
Pros: "Space and time efficiency"
Cons: "Cleaner lavatories, it smelled like urine."
Cons: "When I sat down I found a opened package of cookies which is provided on plan. Tray table had a lot of cookie crumbles too."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "It turned out that we were on stand by (without anyone telling us until the morning of the flight) and did not know if we were going to fly out. We could not select any seats at check in and only found out our seats a few hours before the flight. It was quite unpleasant and stressful as my husband and I were flying with our two children and faced a real possibility of not being able to sit together or getting bumped off a flight all together. It was a code shared flight between Lufthansa and United and each airline kept sending us to the other to get any answers or help. neither were helpful. It made it for an extremely frustrating experience."
Pros: "The 787. Great plane. Great ride."
Cons: "Crew members on all 37 United flights that I have taken in the past 19 months have been rude, unpleasant and grumpy. They do not accommodate modern methods of making children comfortable in seats, such as the use of jetkids and jetbox accessories. I have experienced lies (yes, I’ll be back with more water! Sure, I’ll check for some eye wash for your wife.), misleading (embellishing rules, enforcing rules that do not exist) and overall terrible behavior. With the exception of a few ground crew members who’ve shone through, my interactions with United staff have not been good."
Pros: "Um......30 minutes early to destination"
Cons: "Plane had food and crumbs all over the floor, seats had horrible leg room ( I am 6'5")"
Cons: "It took 35+ mins for bags to be unloaded in claim area. And I was 1st class!"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Just about everything. United Airlines is a transporter for farm stocks. It’s unsuitable to carry humans. Never has and never will be. Fly it only as your last resort."
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "The service and convenience was excellent. Straight forward and smooth transition throughout boarding and catching connecting flight"
Cons: "The piece of mind given to me by the staff with baggage and connecting to the other flight"
Pros: "liked that the plane was small; relatively comfortable and a direct flight."
Pros: "Love it"
Cons: "Our home was damaged, and we were without power for 6 days due to Hurricane Irma. We called the airlines repeatedly in an effort to cancel the ticket before the flight. They refused to cancel the tickets. Heartless"

Pros: "I boarded Lufthansa Flight# 568 on June 1st from Frankfurt to Lagos (my Destination) but forgot my pair of glasses. I made a couple of calls and was finally able to get a contact email address for email@example.com. He is the gentleman at the NAHCO AVIANCE office. He was not only very professional but went over and beyond corresponding well and was able to get the word across to the Malabo Airport where the flight finally terminated. My pair of glasses was returned from Malabo to Nigeria where I picked it up within a couple of days. I was so overjoyed at this display of fantastic customer service. Great job by the excellent team at Lufthansa. I'm going to remain with Lufthansa for future trips. Signed OF."

Pros: "I liked the cleanliness. The use of wifi was great."
Cons: "Didn't like that there was no tv access"
Pros: ".same as above."
Cons: "Second leg was delayed an hour to replace an O2 tank in the back. I understand that things break, but waiting an hour for a "simple fix" is a bit much"
Cons: "I don't think I will be choosing to fly with United going forward. The staff at the desks were rude and very short. I had a layover in Chicago and did not receive any notification that my flight was cancelled due to maintenance. I went to each desk to try and find an associate and no one was available to help the several individuals wondering how to get switched to a new flight. All of us were just given a phone number to call. Once I found someone thy told me that there was no seats available on any of the flights. They found one seat on a plane that was going to laguardia instead of my destination of Newark and then proceeded to tell me that my bags will still go to Newark and it was my job to make sure I filed to get them. (Same thing happened the last time I flew with United) I'm very disappointed all together with how I was treated as a customer."
Pros: "With our mechanical problem delay... our great pilot made up lost time in route... we landed within minutes of scheduled time."
Cons: "There was a mechanical problem with the overhead bins. We were supposed to leave at 19:35. We pushed back at 20:13."
Cons: "The problem w this flight is that the plane departs from ORD. So even if the weather isn't a problem, if there's a problem w the plane they will fix it at ORD. Needless to say the propensity of that happening causes delays."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight arrived early."
Pros: "All fly is in good plan"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No TVs and outlet to charge phone, computer did not work."
Cons: "Was canceled"
Pros: "Flight was 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Fully booked plane"
Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "It was a 6 hr. flight and neither entertainment nor food was complimentary. We were given a tiny pack of pretzels. You expect to at least receive a lunch on a 6 hr. flight. Disappointing."
Cons: "Cabin air didn't work until we were in the air, it was easily iver 80 degrees nthere"
Cons: "Wish I did not book this flight. It was not on"
Cons: "Service was poor, the plane smelled, the seats were dirty, had gum all over the place. The boarding process was slow, the fact that you have to pay for basic entertainment is a rip off. I got news for you United, adding a simple USB port to all of your seats won't hurt, we live in a 21st century. Your airline is a disgrace to what Bill Boreing had managed. I plan to fly Delta or Southwest where planes are clean, staff is friendly, and basic entertainment is free."
Pros: "The crew members were friendly and efficient."
Pros: "Absolutely noting."
Cons: "I purchased a return ticket from Port of Spain, Trinidad to Newark, NJ with United. I also purchased the insurance on this flight because it's good sense to be prepared. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the flight because of medical reasons and had to cancel. When I called United to purchase a new ticket, they were charging me a $200 rebooking fee plus a $30 processing fee. That's almost the price of the ticket! This is an absolutely horrible policy and very unfair. I had to rebook a new ticket with JetBlue which is 100% better, reasonable and understanding than United. Not to mention I lost the credit with united because with the rebooking and processing fee, it's almost the same price as the ticket. Because of this atrocious experience, United will never get my business again."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "They change my gate departure Three time I less than two hours I have a bad back is hard for me to move around that fast."
