Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The entire experience at Newark was dreadful although the actual flight was fine."
Cons: "I was given misinformation about which gate I was supposed to be at and when I eventually got to the proper gate, the plane had left early. The United people that I spoke to in the terminal were very rude and disrespectful. The one woman that I spoke to was extremely nasty to me and it seemed like she was under the influence of something. This experience was totally unacceptable . Not everyone is comfortable flying, especially if they have not flown much. Airport personnel should take that into better consideration . Instead of flying next time, I probably should take the train!"

Cons: "No tv, no , no magazines"
Pros: "Everything on Kayak was fast and simple!:)"

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"
Pros: "Economy plus room"
Cons: "The flight was not Swiss as I booked it. It was operated by United. It was over 45 minutes late boarding and over 2 hours late leaving. Tone of people were checking in at the gate and thus didn't pay extra for economy plus. There were loud and inappropriate passengers and the flight crew didn't do anything about them. I will avoid United at all costs the next time I travel...truly."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."
Pros: "Crew was honest. Provided ice water."
Cons: "Prop plane didn't have air conditioning (flight 4989) thank God it was only 45 minutes and FA provided ice water."
Cons: "The plane was so damn HOT inside. Then we sat on the tarmac for 40mins, while being cramped inside with no word from the flight crew, on why we were not taking off. Worst and most uncomfortable flight in years for me and the rest of us suffering passengers on board.... Horrible Horrible Flight"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food was OK, the entertainment was left to be desired. The comfort was just ok, but to be expected"
Cons: "I purchased a direct flight and was not told the flight was cancelled until I arrived. I was put on two transfers and arrived to my destination 10 hours later than planned. I want my money back."
Pros: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Cons: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Terrible food"
Cons: "How about getting friendlier staff. The male flight attendants were insanely rude."
Pros: "I liked the fact that I got to Dominican Republic on time."
Cons: "However the crew was horrible; there was no food provided. (Crackers j don't call food)."
Pros: "The plane and crew functioned well. From a purely technical stand-point the flight was a success, though it was delayed at Newark because the maintenance dept. took a good half hour to 45 minutes in transmitting its clearance to the captain."
Cons: "A lot of people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and dispositions were crammed into a comparatively small space. It was close and stuffy, very little space to stretch or move about when that was allowed. I'm not tall, but in terms of body mass I'm thicker and wider than many folks, but not obese, and my body thermostat tends to run on the warm side. So the flight was a bit of a physical and mental ordeal for me. The entertainment might have been great had my headphone port been operational. A previous passenger broke off the plug in the hole and the flight staff didn't have a pair of pliers on board to pull it out. Consequently, I was unable to listen to the media in-flight. Also, I couldn't recline my seat because the fussy older woman who sat behind me complained when I did, which made it difficult to snooze."
Pros: "They let us know ahead of time so we could arrive later to the airport, and did not have to wait in the airport."
Cons: "- They were very strict about carry-on luggage size, and insisted even after the flight being 3 hours late. My carry-on fit into their overhead compartment just fine. - No food was offered during the 6 hours flight. - Chairs in coach are uncomfortable for long flights (same as some other airlines I've flown with). Feet or head rest could be nice additions that don't require much additional space per passenger."
Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"
Cons: "Very stressful experience at counter check in. Airline representative didn't know the difference between the expiry date of a visa and that of my passport.. he just ran away with the passport to check and didn't get convinced and it took him long to return, with me just waiting and knowing nothing about where he went. Only the passport needs to be valid for three months after returning from the trip. Not the visa. He should know that. I got my boarding pass at the end, and he didn't apologize for the inconvenience or anything."
Pros: "Nothing. I did not know it was code-shared by United, otherwise I would never take a United flight. This is the second terrible experience in a row. Our flight was delayed. My wife and I somehow to our connecting flight by running all the way and requesting people to let us go ahead of them. However, United did not send our bags fast enought and deliverd them to our place the next day. This created a lot of inconvinience as I was scheduled to go for a business related conference in Chicago. United - you suck! Hate your service for the core. I hope I never have to fly United again."

Pros: "We have a list a cookie on the fly"
Cons: "The see were too cloused"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Cons: "The crew was held up in Houston we had an additional lay over onto our already 3+ hour wsot"
Pros: "The seats were mostly comfortable (although extremely cramped), pillows and blankets were provided. I liked the one free thing offered; ability to follow the planes progress on my iPhone."
Cons: "All of the screens on the side of the cabin I sat in did not work so even if we chose to pay the ridiculous fees for content it wasn't an option. Charging $16 for internet is gouging to the extreme. Truthfully, I would choose to pay a little more for my ticket if I knew that United did not cram people in like sardines, provided good quality free internet, provided free video content (on consoles that worked), and provided a small snack (better than a little wafer)."
Pros: "The fact that I made it to Vegas!!!"
Cons: "Flight uncomfortable the staff wasn't all that pleasant nor attentive..."
Cons: "Plane was not up to par with other current planes. Pricing was high for not having more leg space, TV's which should be a standard by now, and free liquor/wine on international flights! United is truly a disappointment and I may not be flying with them anymore if I had a choice"
Pros: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Cons: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
Pros: "Tight seating funky food"
Pros: "The Cabin Crew"
Cons: "Improve entertainment content"
Cons: "Almost everything- uncomfortable seating, pathetic hosting, malfunctioning entertainment system, delays over 3 hours, missed flights and poor customer treatment. Not one thing went right."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which made me miss my connection to Kochi. There are no announcements or communication from Air India. It's not worth flying Air India for cheaper tickets even if it's a last minute trip. I would recommend Emirates or Qatar Airways, if traveling from NY to COK"
Pros: "Pricing seating and foid"
Cons: "In flight service was bad. Long lay over at Mumbai for connecting flight to Hyderabad.Flight delays"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful. I paid $25 extra (which isn't much at all) for an exit row and it was as comfortable as it could have been in economy. I got to my destination safely and on time which is most important."
Cons: "I wasn't able to keep the screen for the entertainment system up (I had no seats in front of me so the screen was on an arm) so I could not use the entertainment system. If I had been able to use it, I usually prefer using the audio part of the system and I noticed that only Indian music was available. It would be nice if some western music was also offered."
Pros: "Service was curtious and good"
Cons: "Food and wine"
Pros: "Courteous service"
Cons: "Tv was not working at all"
Cons: "Seat allotment."
Cons: "Entertainment system doesn’t work. Headphone jack not working!!"
Cons: "1. The screen on all the 3 seats was not working. 2. The seats were not comfortable as they were very old. 3. They mentioned there will be a stopage at Mumbai but instead when we reached Mumbai the crew was not aware and they asked to collect bags and checkin again through domestic terminal within half an hour. Would not recommend to friend and family."
Cons: "Using the entertainment system was very cumbersome. For one thing, it did not work at the start and someone had to reset the system. Even after that, the system was very sluggish in responding to commands. The range of available selection was very limited."
Pros: "New flight with chargers for phones. Great food and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Terrible airline; my back still hurts 10 days after sleeping on their business class seats."
Pros: "The ground crew as well as the cabin crew was extremely helpful. My arm was in sling and I was traveling with my 3 yr old so they helped me everywhere from carrying the baggage to providing comfortable seats."
Pros: "Direct flight and one less hour the pilots covered the distance . Crew was exlent!"
Cons: "Older flight The seats chosen seem to appear next to rest room than what the seat map showed. Crew helped me seat at different available seat."
Pros: "The entertainment was pretty good. Megar selection, but good quaility. The flight was on time. The leg room was pretty good and the seats reclined back far."
Cons: "-food was poor: too spicy, stale bread. Breakfast was also stale. -the flight attendant ignored my call button request, even cancelled it twice before coming over. Then rolled his eyes at my request for a pillow. -They fumigated the cabin. I'm not kidding. They popped these aerosol canisters and walked around the cabin. I have no idea why. The flight was from NYC to London Heathrow. This was unpleasant to say the least. -since it's a cheap airline, the clientele was as to be expected. Some guy jumped in the lavatory in front of me after I waited 20 mins. The boarding process was like the line for the lifeboats on the titanic. -they played some traditional Indian music during landing. I understand it's AirIndia, but if I wanted music playing I'd have put it on myself. It seemed intrusive and strange. -they "misplaced" our luggage. It didn't come out of the carousel. Bags claim said it's "somewhere in the airport". Myself and about 30 people waited 40 mins for them to find our bags. At least they didn't go with the connecting flight to India? -we deplaned on the tarmac and took buses to the terminal. Once there, AirIndia staff asked us to produce our bording passes again. One women said she threw hers away, since we were already off the plane. They yelled at her saying it made "it" easier for them to process. I have no idea why they needed to see them once we were at our destination."
Cons: "Tv didnt work, staff didnt help with it at all."
Pros: "The price and AI staff attitude/demeanor were both very good."
Cons: "The actual service quality was below the average US flagship airline, far below the average EU flagship airline, and very far below the average Asian flagship airline."
Pros: "- The crew was pretty good. Helpful overall"
Cons: "- The boarding was handled very badly. Couldn't believe my eyes to see something as simple as boarding looking like a complicated job! - AI crew is pretty rude when it comes to helping with overhead cabins: The cabins are high and it really is very difficult for most individuals to manage it single-handedly. For crew to say this is to any passenger,"You opened it. Now close it" without a 'please can you close it' just sounds atrocious and mean"
Pros: "Flt was on time. It was enjoyable.."
Cons: "Lost my sleep !!!"
Pros: "Direct Flight reached on schedule"
Cons: "Some of entertainment systems were not functioning"
Pros: "The window seat"
Cons: "Bathroom a mess"
Pros: "On time, good movies and overall o What one expects for an economy class flight."
Cons: "Sometimes the air hostes were hard to understand."
Cons: "Reached destination late by 13 hours."
Pros: "It left close to on time"
Pros: "Good flight, modern plane. I love curry, but food was god awful"
Cons: "Baggage handlers went through my stuff and stole tools."
Cons: "Limited collection of Hindi and English movies. In particular, not many new releases were available. Other international flights have much better collections of movies"
Pros: "Had good legroom; seating was comfortable"
Cons: "Food was not up to mark. The touchscreen was not responsive everytime."
Pros: "Timing was kept up."
Cons: "Entertainment was at its worst!!!"
Cons: "The staff at the check in counter was very unprofessional. And there was tooo much gap between meals. And when I asked for some snacks for my baby they said the only had peanuts. How is that possible."
Cons: "The plane was incredibly dated, did not include any type of internet (I would have bought for a premium given the 14 hour flight!), nor basic navigational info, so passengers were left not knowing any details about trip progress throughout the duration of flight. This is as close as one gets to flying in 1992."
Pros: "Travelling in Air India was good"
Cons: "No goodies for kids which could have been better."
Cons: "The screen from the front row was loose and fell on my leg which was painful. I felt I was treated as if it were my fault!"
Pros: "Helpful crew and the food was alright."
Cons: "Cracked seats, faulty entertainment systems, broken USB slots, the flight was not cleaned after the previous trip. There was crumbs of biscuits inside the headphone pouch. Another passenger had broken headphones. The touch screen rarely worked and rebooted 2-3 times during the flight. Very old aircraft. I was transported back to the 90s."
Cons: "Don't count on making meetings and connections if your taking Air India"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit disprganized"
Pros: "Never going on an American airline again!"
Pros: "The seats weren't bad on comfort. They had soda water available which was nice. Flight attendants were very courteous."
Cons: "Two of the economy lavatories were out of service so there was quite a wait. The food was not very good--one of the 'meals' was just mushy white bread: one half had a slice cheese slapped on it and the other half had a piece of lettuce and one tomato, which I just didn't eat at all."
Pros: "General fleet of aircraft and overall infrastructure seems good."
Cons: "Crew just does not have the habit of smiling. They just do not want to co-operate on simple things like getting water with a smile, or giving a meal later (if the passanger was asleep when the meal service was passing). I mean how difficult can it be to give a meal later, you leave the passanger hungry for crying out loud. And all the airlines in america do this curtesy of either waking a sleeping passanger or serve meal later to that passanger. Indian crew members are just waiting to leave the passager hungry and throw your stupid excuses. And I am an Indian, so dont call me prejudiced."
Pros: "The food and the comfertness is great"
Cons: "Staff and the cleanliness suckes"
Pros: "Direct non stop"
Cons: "Was told that my ex baggage would cost $100 but when I got there at check in was informed that it was going to be $200. T Totally unacceptable. I could have easily given the extra suitcase to my son in law coming a few days later who has a status on Continental & could take it for free for me!"
Pros: "Good crew . Helpful and polite . Smiling"
Cons: "Cleanliness to b improved in toilets . Seats were not in good condition . Place near window should be clean"
Pros: "Flight landed timely despite a late take off"
Cons: "Food quality very poor. Baggage claim took me over an hour.waiting after a 15hr flight was troublesome Flight attendants were not responsive Many of the entertainment systems didn't worked and passagers kept complaining"
Cons: "I did not like to complete immigration in Mumbai as my connecting flight to Hyderabad is in couple hours and I had to take my luggage and check in again and check out again in Hyderabad , very inconvenient process , doesn't make any sense to carat big luggage twice and stress level raises as the connect flight might miss , very poor coordination ."
Pros: "Seats are spacious , food was OK"
Cons: "The tray did not work , needed effort to fold n unfold, seats and carpets smelled of pesticides , movies and entertainment was not latest , it was 2014 ."
Pros: "Awesome food"
