Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi and entertainment. Landed early."
Cons: "Way too crowded during Covid, every single seat was taken. Then, to make things worse, they let people in with food so they'd have the excuse to unmask in-flight. On top of which, they passed around snacks (in a 2-hr flight?? during Covid??) so 80% of the plane took their masks off to eat their pretzels and drink their water. Unacceptable."

Cons: "That particular plane seemed old and interior worn."

Cons: "Mobile boarding passes did not work and required us to go back to the service counter and print the tickets. Luckily we had time but this was a hassle given we were traveling with our 3 year old. The woman at the service desk quickly helped us print the passes but stated the mobile boarding passes tended to not scan. They should have told us to print the passes the first time we were at the counter if they knew the mobile passes tend to not work."

Cons: "You are kidding."
Cons: "We waited at the gate in Frankfurt once the plane was loaded for 40 minutes for the aircraft to get pushed back from the jetway . Waited another 25 minutes in Dallas for an operator to place the jetway to the aircraft. One of the stewardess we had was really rude."
Pros: "The plane was really nice."
Cons: "The food was not good."
Pros: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."
Cons: "flight delay"
Pros: "Checkin was fast. Crew is always pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I chose to upgrade my seat and was charged but i couldnt see any difference between my seat and anyone elses. I dont understand how it works. Then I was refunded the upgrade amount..."

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "United is the literal worst. Economy basic where you are forced to check and pay for your carry on?! Horrible service in the terminal, staff more interested in their phones than helping. Wifi didn’t work. I’m the future I will pay more and fly anyone else. Never making this mistake again."
Pros: "Crew didn’t interact-but in all fairness it was only a 2 hr flight"
Cons: "Plane moaned groaned and squeaked with every movement. Turbulence was nasty in the first stage decent"
Pros: "That I can charge my phone."
Cons: "That I needed the wall jack part to charge my phone. My side’s wall jack was broken. I think if possible they can make it that I can plug the usb part of the wall jack straight. This way the wall jack won’t be needed. Also they were only two in each roll but they are three seats in each roll."
Cons: "My baggage was left in Houston"
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "Good. Thank You united airlines.!! Excellent 10.00"

Pros: "Flight Attendent, crew and aircraft"
Cons: "Had to wait 35 minutes for luggage at Bradley. Poor"
Pros: "Domestic flight from IAD to LAX was not great as usual — small space, overbooked, no food, entertainment slow. But LAX-INCHEON-MNL was GREAT! Extra space, efficient, helpful and happy crew ready to help passengers! I was surprised by this!"
Pros: "The arrive time was excellent. Courtesy and smile faces of the Crew in Business Class"
Cons: "The boarding process was ugly, in disorder and it is a big lie you have with your business class ticket the priority option. The food was very poor. I had to avoid continue eating because I felt the food was not fresh."
Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"
Pros: "I liked the extensive entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t like that for about 10 hours there is no meal service."
Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."
Cons: "It did not register my touch very well. It was hard to navigate through the movies as the scroll interface didn't work smoothly. The whole system needs to be updated, including the hardware."
Cons: "my TV did not work while everyone elses did"
Cons: "They don’t care about their passengers one bit"
Pros: "The service at the automated counter was very good"
Pros: "they gave a $100 voucher"
Pros: "To be honest both flights were below average and the average flight isn't great to begin with. United found a way to really push the boundaries of that floor"
Cons: "Could not check in online. Had to get boarding pass at kiosk. No opportunity to upgrade if purchasing basic economy. Staff not helpful. Restricted to a purse size bag? Really? I just love that united gives you one last chance to gouge you by telling you that you CAN check in online only if you pay for check in. I know delta started this whole basic economy deal but united really set a new low on their version."
Cons: "As common as this might be, I think 4 hours delay is the worst advertising for an airline. I completely understand things can happen but, what would happen if I show up 4 hours late? will you be ok with that. We gotta be fair. I think passengers deserve a compensation for this"
Pros: "tsa pre"
Pros: "I missed the gotdamn flight"
Cons: "I missed"
Pros: "The crew and captain were amazing dealing with us during a terrible, late night delay. They constantly kept us updated about what was happening and were constantly walking around to ensure all of our needs were met."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrible. Two bathrooms and the in-flight entertainment did not work as well as most reading lights. A door sensor wasn't working correctly which cost us another hour of waiting for a technician to come and repair/reset the sensor."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked could fly out until the next day"
Pros: "Nothing about this was good. Our flight was canceled and no one alerted us. Apparently you didn't even know it was canceled. Not cool. I've given Kayak.com a lot of business but I'm done. This was unacceptable. How do you not alert your customer? Terribly disappointed."
Cons: "Read above."
Cons: "Booked on flight next day but much less convenient than original direct flight."
Cons: "They charge de luggage, didnt gave anything to eat, the luggage in orlando came like 2 hours late. The flight back from Houston was cancelled with no reason, they overbooked the flight.. and worst of all the only offer us a $10 disccount in a cheap hotel.. no food nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment is too hard with Direct TV"
Pros: "Seats have some good cush to them"
Cons: "I specifically bought carry on luggage that meets the standards so that I would not have to go baggage claim as it would weigh heavily on my schedule. As I stood in line and noticed all of the huge "carry on" bags more than 2 I was astounded when the flight attendant said my carry on would have to be loaded with the other luggage. When I offered my rebuke she scolded me and said the luggage would be there before me....how the hell is that supposed to happen? To make matter worse the flight "attendants" stopped serving half way and when they started again I got trapped by the bathroom and did not get back to my seat in time to enjoy a beverage....not that I was offered one."
Pros: "The flight crew tried to make the best of a bad situation."
Cons: "We paid good money for first class tickets expecting to get a hot dinner meal on the flight so we had not eaten. By the time the flight was allowed to take off, the dinner onb the flight had sat too long and they were not allowed to serve it. They gave us a coupon for $20 buck to eat dinner at San Francisco airport upon arrival but of course no restaurant is open at 2:00 am."
Pros: "Awesome Illy coffee and stroopwaffel cookie for my flight to Guatemala for my first medical mission trip on a snowy cold morning was a welcome snack. It was so much better than the snack mix or nut packs that you usually get."
Cons: "My bag didn't came with came, it was a direct flying. The air conditioned was too cold"
Cons: "Airline would not help in any way. Tried rescheduling flight and they wanted to charge me over $500 when I could simply book a $170 Delta flight. I thought they'd help me replace my ticket with another or at least something, but I guess we all know now how United treat their passengers."
Cons: "I am a school director and had a very important meeting, that's why I had to get to my country and I almost lost my job for losing my flight due to the airline's ineligibility. I did not like the fact that, I didn't know were to go because it was too crowded. every time I ask them to help me, they ether not answers or did not know what to tell me. Every one seen to be very confused. They have very bad costumers service. I even cut myself wile trying to put the bag into the square that they now have, to see if it can go into the airplane. I was very surprised that they didn't even excuse themselves for the inconvenient... this was a horrible experience... don't think I'll ever take this airline again. They have no organization."
Pros: "Attendant was nice."
Cons: "Unexpected, unannounced delay put us into Chicago 30 minutes late. I was scheduled to have a 45 minute layover, now down to 15. I was given no support getting to my next gate, that plane was not held despite the fact that I ran across the terminal to catch it."

Cons: "I wish the plan had device charge ports since they offer in-flight entertainment on your device."

Pros: "The amenities are fabulous. The flight was very comfortable."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."
Pros: "Did not fly as I chose to drive to St George so I could make my business meeting. I would have missed this if I had stayed on the plane."

Cons: "Baggage claim was extremely slow..."
Pros: "No surprises which is good"

Pros: "Everything moved along as planned and no delays."
Pros: "Not much"
