Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Throughout the flight every since and while they offered food. Snaks, drinks, desserts as well as main course. Surprisingly as it is relatively not a long flight. Some of food was not very tasty, but definitely won't stay hungry!"
Cons: "Sky is the limit"
Cons: "ran out of the food i wanted. poor selection of food... screen on "tv" was too dark to see details"
Pros: "Great flight - very nice crew and service."
Cons: "A few dirty cups were left behind from the previous flight."
Cons: "It turns out that this flight was delayed, so I would have missed my connections. Huge thanks to the gate agent from United who rebooked me to San Francisco and from there to Frankfurt and then Prague."
Cons: "Glad we were able to watch a movie"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, friendly crew, comfortable seating."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Cons: "Plane left one hour late."
Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Not enough food for 8.5 hours!!"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Unable to since they did not wait for several passengers."
Cons: "I was called the night before saying our flight was overbooked will you change flights for 300.00 dollars each. We needed to get home so we turned their offer down. The day of the flight our connection flight was delayed we were told someone would escort several of the passengers from Lufthansa to the connection with United no one was there. Several of us ran to where the flight gate was but the plane already left. It turns out other people were also called and turned down United’s offer. So the question is since our flight was purposely overbooked did United take advantage of our situation and just leave and cause all of us great pain and duress with no compensation for all of our inconvenience."
Pros: "No delays for flight, despite weather."
Cons: "Lack of legroom or recline in seats. I know it’s economy, but come on. We’re not sardines."
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."
Cons: "Very limited movie choices on this 767 aircraft"
Pros: "Crew was so nice and professional."
Cons: "Small space (I am not heavy set). Crying, inconsolable child on the entire flight. :("
Pros: "The staff was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "My window shade was upside down and I had to hold it to stay up and the plane was very small."
Cons: "Ive never flown with United Airlines internationally and now that I have I never will again. I had just flown with COPA airlines from Colombia to Panama and it was great. I thought I would have a similar experience with United, but alas it was not. You have to pay for movies and food on an international flight?! what is that! terrible terrible"
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: "Nothing compared to the part condiucted by ANA."
Cons: "Lacking in patience. Use of negative body language on passengers."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff, no problems"
Cons: "Warm while on the ground. Otherwise comfortable"
Cons: "I selected the original flight for it's times, which would work best for my grandmother who was traveling solo and needed wheel chair access. Then I receive an email there will be a 7 hour delay and there were no other flights available for my original time slot. United this is the second time you have "delayed" or changed my seat after calling and selecting it and inconvenienced me. I will look for other providers from now on!"
Pros: "Movies on plane"
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay caused necessity of connection to be unusable - no explanation. Virtually useless help in getting a new connection."
Pros: "I like the seats in the plane."
Cons: "When we were bording, we had 5 bags and one very small handbag. And then the bording the lady who works there told us that we couldn't have more then 5 bags, because we are five people. She count that small bag as one. In addition, I realized that because we have different race, she did let us go."
Pros: "Good experience with United. I don't usually fly with this airline wi I was kinda hesitant, but it was ok."
Cons: "I don't like that there is no free in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Crew was really upbeat and helpful"
Cons: "The airline seats are a joke. Shared my middle "seat with two normal/thin guys and there was literally no room hot me to even put my arms down. The upright seat position isn't; it's pitched forward, and even when "reclined" perhaps 2 inches, it's no relief. Arrived in Chicago needing an ice pack for my neck and back pain. Also, LAX Terminal is visibly dirty."
Pros: "The employees were kind, considerate and professional."
Cons: "I don't have any complaints at this time"
Pros: "Comfy seats and liked that we actually got blankets for the Red Eye. Lots of airlines don't provide anything anymore."
Cons: "Boarding took quite a while."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Overhead light was flickering and I couldn't read"
Pros: "I had a special meal and they were mindful to bring it and check that everything was okay."
Cons: "I downloaded the United app for entertainment but for some reason, I wasn't able to watch movies. It kept giving me an error. Make sure you download the app before the flight and that you have the latest version! At least they were playing movies and shows on the main screens."
Pros: "Generally it was ok. Travelling is so horrible these days that "ok" seems pretty great."
Cons: "My bag was lost but my husband's, checked at the same time, made it."
Pros: "Entertainment was offered on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was 90 minutes late Crew took an additional 40 minutes to get passengers with disabilities off the plane. There's no reason it should have taken that long. After I paid for entertainment, the crew announced it would be free for everyone since we were so late. Crew member was super-grouchy. Seats couldn't be smaller if they tried to sit you on a postage stamp. I'm a tiny person, but this is ridiculous!"
Cons: "A mechanical issue delayed our return by over an hour. I guess they didn't know the extent or the time needed to repair, so we boarded at the regular time and sat in the plane. Good cabin crews both ways. Food meh. The 787 over was much better than the aging 767 coming back. I like the new app based entertainment system."
Pros: "The flight and cabin crew were awesome!!"
Cons: "Snack was really gross"
Cons: "Over an hour late in the middle of the night early morning after Rabbi from Houston to Fort Lauderdale and uncomfortable seats hard to sleep in for a redeye maybe good for regular day flying by too tight too cramped and the boarding process was so chaotic because they had too many suitcases and they had to take them out and then that made a stand in line waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting and a poor man on crutches was waiting forever and we were smelling the exhaust fumes"
Pros: "The flight left on time, arrived on time, no problems"
Cons: "The 3 hour layover."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Changed the seating plan because it was a different aircraft, we were separated and told we couldn't change seats"
Pros: "Staff and comfort good."
Cons: "Samething no help to my flights or cabin."
Pros: "The welcoming feeling that I received from the flight attendants."
Cons: "There was a drunk man on the flight. He kept making so many disruptions."
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."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "Snacks could be better choices, for the free one."
Cons: "Seated in the last row of plane and was continuously bumped by flight attendant as she delivered drinks."
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "Squashed in like sardines in a can, but that's expected when flying economy. NO DISLIKES."
Cons: "Service. Flight attendant negative attitude and disrespect for customers."
Pros: "Employees were very nice Very easy to board/check in"
Pros: "Nothing. One flight attendant gave me a gingere when I was sick from landing and that was helpful."
Cons: "Compeltly ridiculous that you had to pay for every single thing. I think the only complimentary thing was cranberry juice and water. Paying for entertainment and wifi with seperate fees felt really cheap and tacky along with the plane itself. It was run down and looked and felt even more that way when you're competing with flights from companies like JetBlue where they work to make you feel comfortable and provide free entertainment. We also were an hour delayed and sat on the runway for an hour before we left due to too much traffic over Cuba. It felt as a customer that it was poor planning on the companies part and that that could have been avoided earlier. Companies that put effort into a comfortable flying experience and care about customer satisfaction will be getting my money in the future. United would be my last choice when make travel plans in the future."
