Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Free upgrade to business class"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was directed to Chicago nonstop flight"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful"
Cons: "Fresno needs a better runway so bigger planes can fly in"
Cons: "Loud and obnoxious gossiping throughout the flight. Using profanity and talking about personal issues. Extremely unprofessional."
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating. Terrible food"
Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"
Cons: "I didn't like getting bumped and having a 15 hour layover and having to find accommodation in Houston.. that was awful."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't like that they charge for the direct TV and movies. I really think that should be included. The flight was delayed for a minor repair , for inconvenience, I think they should have offered the direct TV free. I didn't see anyone around us buy it. The crew was OK but didn't stand out sharp in their uniforms. I liked the ANA legs of our trip much better."
Cons: "I farted on the plane"
Pros: "Flight left on time, food was yummy, great coffee and crew was nice"
Pros: "I liked a straight nonstop flight. Clean and comfortable."
Cons: ""Free WiFi, not free.""
Cons: "When did a garment bag become a third luggage. Terrible company"
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Cons: "Due to United delays in Bogota we were put on a standby flight 3 hours later. We didn't get on. Then had another connection two hours later that was delayed due to maintenance. Spent over 10 hours in airport. And over a total of 30 hours traveling ☹️"
Pros: "I really can't complain about the flight. Great service and on time"
Cons: "The only unfortunate thing was there were no TVs which was a bummer"

Cons: "Everything for a fee."
Pros: "Didn't crash"
Cons: "Booked two seats at same time and they weren't by one another. Plane was not full so asked ticket counter if they find two seats together but did not want last row because seats don't recline. Clerk said those were only seats together so she she said she'd move us to exit row (still separate middle seats). However, seats were not actually exit row and they did not recline. So we simply got moved to separate middle seats in a different, a row that didn't recline."
Cons: "The heavy winds and turbulence made this the scariest flight I've ever been on."
Pros: "The airplane stuff was real charming, tho the fly got delayed it wasn't united' fault it was a mechanicall problem and they solve the problem real well and eve get us a hotel"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Kept us all up to date all the time."
Pros: "It was very quick boarding, it may have been a bit confusing though."
Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "The people at the gate and on the plane were nice. But I flew United Airlines not Lufthansa."
Cons: "Really sad that you have to pay extra money to watch the monitors on the back of the headrest for a 2.5 trip. That's crappy. And then there is a point when you're out of the Directv Range. We're paying more for flights and then they have flight waitresses trying to monetize the time you're in the air. And when I was checking in in Berlin this guy was asking me a ton of questions, but didn't ask the next 5 people any questions. When I stared at him he started asking others questions. It's really none of your business why I'm going somewhere or what I'm doing. These terrorist attacks are giving people authority they have no business having."
Pros: "That I was able to find a cheap seat to come home for a family emergency even though the seating was tight."
Cons: "The scheduling was really tight. Had to basically run from gate 25 to gate 82 to catch my flight to Nebraska. And then I realized this was the same the last time I flew this route a couple years ago around Christmas. Too close. Good thing I'm in shape."
Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."
Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."
Cons: "Smooth flight, on time, safety procedures followed"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "Plane was not cleaned properly. And it was restroom smell all over the mane during the boarding"
Pros: "We drove into the airport and parked. Checked in. Went through security. All in 15 minutes."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like."
Cons: "i did not see anywhere when checking in on line that there was a charge for checked bags or that the self checking had to be done 45 minutes prior to departure."
Pros: "Overall everything was well conducted. the seats were comfortable and the flight attendants cordial and welcoming."
Cons: "We were a bit late boarding then sat on the tarmac for an extended period of time only to be told that we were headed back to the gate for inspection. They didn't tell us up front what they were dealing with and there was an odd sound and for a few moments the smell of jet fuel wafted in. It was frightening, especailly since the noise persisted and there was no further information offered. When we were set to get back on the runway we were told it was a cargo door that was the issue and that all was well. I would have appreciatted being told what the nature of the problem was initially so that we could know if it was mechanical, engine related etd."
Pros: "Midland Airport was easy checking in, Excellent air crew from United Airlines. Bush Airport easy getting around. Great Flight all around."
Cons: "FRA- SFA was possibly the worst food I've had so far; (SFA - FRA by contrast had been really good) entertainment: movies kept pausing/getting 'stuck', such that one would miss, sometimes crucial, dialog in the film - very annoying! while collecting trash or offering snacks crew walked the aisle rather fast, and, more importantly, back to front (so that one couldn't see them coming), with the result that I had to either shout after them (while other passengers were sleeping) or get up and run after them..."
Pros: "The staff was friendly... I liked the dimmed lights... The free beverages n options to purchase alcohol... The flight was quick and steady"
Cons: "When I got to my seat I had to use a wipe to clean it because there was what looked like either throw up or oatmeal on my seat.... The pocket in front of me was filled with trash like an empty water bottle, a bag of chips and dirty napkins (they were very big so it was obvious that no one cleans between flights)... Also it didn't matter how many times I tried connecting to the wifi, I couldn't and I was willing to pay for it to because it was important that I work during my flight."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
Pros: "Staff seemed lively and created good atmosphere; thank you."
