Pros: "Spacious enough (for economy), decent food, no delays in boarding or in schedule"
Cons: "I was surprised at the rudeness of the female staff towards people who didn't understand her the first time she said something. Obvious looks of anger and condescending tones towards those people spoke to poor customer service; however, one male staff was really friendly and fluent in Japanese. Very helpful"
Pros: "Until they can make the chair recline backwards a little more (which, space issues may never allow for and I acknowledge this), and give food a bit more substantial then it won’t be 5 stars. However, exceptional stewartess and captains with humor made this 14 hour flight bearable."
Pros: "Good price"
Cons: "Stink in the plane"
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was a little rude."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant and helpful. Food selections were very good. Lavatories were well maintained throughout the 14-hour flight, which is very much appreciated."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seats for a very long flight."
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "ANA: Flight attendents very nice"
Cons: "ANA: Seat was uncomfortable for a seven hour flight....Could not totally recline ANA: Food was very basic--not a business class meal"
Pros: "Great flight and crew"
Pros: "I wouldnt know"
Cons: "I didnt like that I was charged almost a full month after the booking and wasnt reimbursed for ANAs fuckup"
Pros: "It is like going to the dentist, long, boring, uneventful. That is good. Eventful flights are scary"
Cons: "Couldn't select my seats ahead of time."
Cons: "I thought it was ANA but it was United."
Pros: "I got upgraded from Economy to Economy Plus without being charged a dime more. And the difference between the two classes is very noticeable! The Economy Plus seats may have an extra 3" per side and it's awesome! Plus, United partnered up with ANA for my first leg to Manila and that plane was spectacular, as was the top-notch crew!"
Pros: "The services"
Pros: "Hostesses came around often"
Cons: "I don't know if I can ding ANA though I paid for a ANA flight and got an entirely United flight. The media was rather old and the screen looked like it hadn't been updated since they got a touch screen, which didn't work all that well. The food was terrible. Only beer and wine was complementary."
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "Large selection of movies to keep me entertained throughout a 13 hour flight."
Cons: "The food did not sit well with me. Seats became uncomfortable after a while, made it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "There was a nice selection of entertainment"
Cons: "The plane was not comfortable at all for an International flight. United should invest in bigger planes for flights over 6 hours. I could hardly sleep since the seats were so uncomfortable. Further, I was unable to get up and move around as much as I had on other international flights. There was no room on this plane to walk around and stretch. The food was mediocre. Quantas, Air China and Japan Airlines have much better meals."
Pros: "I liked the power outlets that were available, as well as the USB! I have trouble sleeping on flights, but the great options for the in flight entertainment made it more than bearable. I will always choose to fly United now."
Cons: "I coudnt make an on line checked in, and i called i asked for aisle seats the gurl said yes and its checked in but when i recieved the boarding pass it was middle seat and the worst seat ever at the emergency seat, it was really small the food was terrible service was so bad ! No more united airlines for long flights."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Crammed seats, poor quality entertainment system (but at least with access to in-seat monitor, while on the way to the US that was not available), no additional amenities of any kind, including in the restroom, bad quality and insufficient quantity for food and drinks, and the usual/to-be-expected poor/disrespectful attitude of the United flight and gate attendants."
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Pros: "The crew was doing their work well."
Cons: "At the boarding gate over 30 people were in line to get a seat number. I thought I had successfully selected my aisle seat online but was arbitrarily given a middle seat. I tend to use the washroom often. I had to climb over a sleeping passenger many times, without waking him up. One gentleman had some serious problems there but it was clear he was not getting any resolution. he was obviously very very frustrated. Syrupy sweet noodles?"
Pros: "Nah, sorry I don't have any special for the flight!"
Cons: "The United flight so far was a terrible experience for me. the food is so salty and so little!! I am a person who love to eat so much, but the food (noodle) was very bad, I didn't finish it. The ice-cream at first I'm so excited and the taste very good! However, it been already melted so... I'm so disappointing. There is no entertainment on plane... I'm so boring"
Cons: "One of the stewardesses had a terrible attitude. She was rude to people and rolling her eyes at them. She also seemed to be rude to her fellow co workers."
Cons: "Did not have enough good snacks"
Pros: "11 hour delay announced iteratively in two hour increments. Worst flying experience to date. I may no longer fly united as a result."
Cons: "The 11 hour delay preceding my 14 hour flight."
Cons: "Ana flight attendants are the best!!! Excellent service cheeers"
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: "About as comfortable as a trans-pacific flight gets in economy class. Plenty of leg room, great entertainment choices, surprisingly good food - and plenty of it, by the time breakfast came around I was actually too full to eat it!"
Pros: "the japanese speaking flight attendant was exellent! she was very observant to passengers needs. i was also pleasantly surprised by the entertainment system."
Cons: "there was a flight delay due to maintenance, which was inconvenient."
Pros: "Economy Plus seating was quite comfortable. Movie and TV selection options provided wide variety which gave me an opportunity to view several titles on my wish list."
Cons: "The menu card did not provided selections for this flight and the crew description was very broad - pasta or noodles. For example, "ravioli with marinara sauce or chow mein with vegetables" would have been more helpful."
Pros: "Computerised and self check-in was good and fast."
Cons: "Require united app on smartphone or tablet. Don't expect personal screen as its not available. Unfriendly crew and food was bad."
