Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I got stuck in the airport through the whole night"
Pros: "on time. Seat was fine."
Cons: "Way too small a plane for the flight length."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "This plane has more space than larger plane, was more comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Better snacks would be nice, and there was no entertainment available, even for personal devices."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Steward and Stewardess very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Walk between flights was extreme - tracked at about a mile! The video movie was incredibly choppy making entertainment frustrating."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "I think that going stingy with customers on a flight regarding food is disappointing. It’s the first time in my life that I travel and the airline doesn’t not provide food in the overall cost!, and charging for entertainment:speechless! And the seats, well uncomfortable would be a nice word to describe them.No United again!"
Pros: "The flight was fine, no drama. Crew was s great. But damn that is an uncomfortable plane. We were only on it 3 hours and I found the seat to be so short in the seat pan my back and legs were aching an hour in to it. You are really are just pearched on the seat. Also the aisle is extremely narrow. You almost have to walk side ways down it."
Pros: "Lufthansa was great"
Cons: "TSA in SFO treated us like vermin. Issuing confusing orders and barking at us to come and go. I almost cried that I had returned to this beautiful country to be treated like an unwelcome criminal."
Pros: "Leg room 7 aisle"
Cons: "Pretzels on a 4 our flight? There should have been some food"
Cons: "Not being able to request a seat on the aisle."
Pros: "Boarded the aircraft on a very cold January day. The cabin was not heated at all until the engines were started 25 minutes after boarding. Small kids were crying as they were so cold. Easily the most uncomfortable boarding ever. Where’s the heat!!! Money that tight!!!"
Cons: "Lack of heat made the boarding brutally uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was a bit less expensive at first, but the charges added up quickly. My only complaint really is that the booking was through Air Canada and the flight was operated through United Airlines. It wasn’t a problem for me but if you only have a Visa debit card and want to pay for checked bags online, this is not possible to do online prior to checking in. You also can’t check in to your flight as you would normally, you get the last available seats and have to pay for any seat changes. All in all, I’d still book through Kayak but I’d make sure that the flight I booked was through the company that operates the flights. It’s will give you more options when checking in to the flight."
Cons: "I was put through a third party airline that had no control of the final booking procedure that I was used to. I could not choose seats or add checked luggage on my visa debit, I needed a credit card. This wasn’t a problem but it could pose problems for some people."
Pros: "It was typical of experience you get these days."
Cons: "All met expectations."
Pros: "Finally, got a plane and arrived in SLO!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours: no information, no explanation. In fact, all cooperating connecting United flights were 2 hours late, not just mine"
Pros: "Great coastal views"
Cons: "O issues"
Pros: "No one died."
Cons: "The boarding was he'll at best."
Cons: "Flight didn't happen due to reschedule from delays"
Pros: "Same as my previous flight, the crew was outstanding. Had to avoid a rain storm and no turbulence. The stewardess was great! Everything went well!"
Cons: "Again same as above, comfort was a major hindrance. Hard to get comfortable. Wish the airlines could make seating arrangements a little larger!! Otherwise the experience was great!"
Cons: "Baggage was lost."
Cons: "delays... not flying united again"
Cons: "Audio did not work well on demand, food costs money"
Pros: "They helped get me rerouted."
Cons: "It seems to be a common problem plaguing United. Last flight was 4 hours delayed. This time it was last minute notification of 2 hour delays that would automatically make a connection be missed. Delayed the whole trip by several hours. Getting tiered of constant problems with United."
Cons: "No drinks"
Cons: "It was an hour late."
Pros: "Comfort was perfect. Checkin was easy and staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Engine problems before take-off."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. The flight attendant's were extremely welcoming. I will fly United again."

Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding, crew and staff were all as expected."
Cons: "This was a "puddle Jumper" flight so seats were small but all as expected."
Pros: "The Pilot is very proffesional."
Cons: "Very inconvenient to collect the luggages and check in again for a transit passenger. There is also no proper assistance in Ottawa. It is because of that one of my luggages didn't arrive with me. I wasted much time waiting and again claim to know the where about. I will never use Air Canada connection flight."
Cons: "O'Hare airport. Bad signage to economy parking."
Pros: "Crew again was fantastic"
Cons: "Increase the length of your seatbelts"
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork, the announcements, the boarding, the take off, the landing and the on time arrival. This trip was an example of how things should go."
Pros: "Crew was patient, plenty of room to move thru cabin! Went fast & was over before we knew it!"
Pros: "I appreciated full cans of soda."
Cons: "I tried getting on the stand by list on my phone web browser, but found out later that I was not. This process could be made much clearer and easier."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hour and then canceled. 1.5 hour flight between Chicago & Omaha. Weather was gorgeous in both places. Will ever fly united again for this."
Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."

Cons: "Is a seatback tv too much to ask for?"
Pros: "Crew and workers were all pleasant and polite"
Cons: "United knows they can't fly into Orange County after curfew. This was handled terrible. After 4 delays. All weather related we were finally boarded. Yay hope. Not even to our destination. Boarded to LAX. Now we are seated. The announcement pilots won't fly. No. It is illegal for them to fly. Why not tell customers. Don't blame pilots. Also you know the rules why board us. Even if we flew we still needed a two hour ride to SNA. It was sheer luck I called and was told another flight leaving in 8 min at gate 14 ten gates away. My running to catch that flight was not good. I made it panting. Arrived in LAX at 2:00 a m Not my destination. If nothing else people should be compensated by United don't you think?"
Cons: "Old plane, old in-seat entertainment system. Since a phone or tablet won't play for hours off of battery, the usefulness of United App entertainment greatly limited by lack of outlets in Economy."
Pros: "Easy fast friendly!"
Cons: "That it wasnt free :)"
Pros: "There was a large amount of room"
