Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Doing better with last minute delays and connecting flights. I’ve lost my bags for the second time now"
Pros: "Crew is always great with United."
Cons: "Delayed boarding, no room in overhead bins even after being charged extra for carryon and had to stuff it at my feet, even at row 15, after being charged more for that too."
Pros: "Everything was on time and as far as flights go, it was uneventful which is what you want on a long haul flight such as this."
Cons: "Food options have gotten old as I have taken this trip many times for work, maybe mixing up the choices a bit."
Pros: "We didn’t like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable. Far less room than we expected and the seating posture was unbearable. If United continues this poor level of service as it reaches for every last passenger dollar, it will surely lose business. We will seek alternatives from now on."
Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."
Cons: "Poor communications, no apologies"
Pros: "No issues at all on this leg of the flight."
Cons: "wish plane had phone chargers on board"
Pros: "Customer service and everything else was great"
Cons: "Getting delayed. We were supposed to leave at 10 something PM but instead kept getting delayed until we finally left at 1:45am. That to me killed my overall experience for that flight considering that it's an 8 hour flight and that I needed to come back on that Monday. Less time do stuff for the weekend."
Cons: "One and a half hour delay to get in the plane then we were told to sit on the tarmac for another hour. Pilots had no sense of urgency tying to make up any of the time. Flight attendant was extremely rude and condescending."
Pros: "The staff was courteous and efficient. The entertainment selections were diverse. The seating was adequate for a long haul flight."
Cons: "The check-in process took 50 minutes at the counter as the staff told me that I needed a visa for China (transit) while that info was incorrect. I had to deal with online customer service while the person at the counter couldn’t help. It finally took 3 people at the counter to send me away. Once on the plane for a 14+ hour flight, I couldn’t use the bathrooms freely as they were filthy. The staff obviously didn’t maintain the bathrooms during the entire flight. The food served made me wish that I had bought take-out food for 3-meals prior to my boarding. the quantity of food was inadequate for the long flight as well. 1 extra snack would have been appreciated. I will likely book my future trans-Pacific flights with another airline."
Pros: "crew was apologetic"
Cons: "no movie service, no wifi. this is the 3rd time this has happened to me on an international flight to China on United. so bad. every other airline has it all together"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Entertainment system Completely broken for full duration of flight. Individual screen also broken as well as seat Broken 19C"
Pros: "- Crew was attentive."
Cons: "- Personal device entertainment was intermittently functional, had to use the poor onboard display for entertainment. - Internet access was $39.99 for the length of the trip, that price is ridiculous."
Cons: "Seat was way too small"
Pros: "Cool crew"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Can keep electronic devices on in flight mode. Had power outlets, very nice!"
Cons: "Boading horrible mess. A second flight was boarding using same audio system. And no elite flyer pre boading in SFO"
Pros: "On time arrival in China. Good entertainment options for my iPad, better than seat back display"
Cons: "The usual lack of attentiveness by United Flight crew"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "I guess San Francisco ATC (Air Traffic Control) decided the plane couldn’t leave San Fran until way past our take off time. Then it takes two plus hours to get the plane here unload and refuel and rest. So I missed my connecting flight to Redding. Which meant I had to fly to Sacramento. Then I had a pleasant 3 hour drive on I-5 (can you sense my sarcasm?!) didn’t reach my destination until 5 in the FREAKING morning. Around 8 HOURS LATE TO MY DESTINATION"
Pros: "Flight left and landed on time. In flight entertainment worked."
Cons: "In flight food made me sick later in the flight."
Cons: "I didn’t like being told I couldn’t use the restroom in front because it was for 1st class only. I was in a wheelchair and dealing with spine issues which made it very difficult to walk at all. Then on my flight home from GR the flight ended up being 3 hrs late. I was in terrible pain."
Pros: "Food choices"
Cons: "Average service"
Cons: "WiFi for $39.99, used to be $19.99 before."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled and they did not notify us"
Pros: "Mints at the end of the flight! Leg room adequate! Professional attendants."
Cons: "During Boarding process we blocked the entire concourse making it awkward for non passengers of the flight walking to and fro who had to squeeze between us. Has to be a better way. Otherwise very smooth."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "Crew's facial expression were upsetting to see since they looked unhappy. Should I be worried about my flight?"
Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Pros: "Direct flight - nothing else"
Cons: "This flight is never on time"
Pros: "Flight crew were very helpful."
Cons: "too many people on flights."
Cons: "The cabin smelled like an unflushed toilet. That should be enough!!!"
Pros: "It was a jet"
Cons: "But the captain was missing for over an hour"
Pros: "Comfort of business class was ok"
Cons: "No vegetarian food. Delayed flight by more than 4 hours :-("
Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."
Pros: "Connecting flights in China need more of a layover I missed my connecting flight not happy it was a disaster going through immigration takes forever in Shanghai .."
Cons: "That i got stuck in China for 2 days"
Cons: "i booked my flight on Kayak and immediately been cancelled dunno why"
Cons: "The seats are tiny. If you drio something, you can't reach down to pick it up. The food was burnt. The app isn't downloadable in China. The overall experience makes me not want to ever fly United again."
Pros: "Before boarding the attention was very good"
Cons: "After boarding the seats were broken, there was no entertainment and the food was next to nothing"
Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."
Pros: "Got there on time with bags"
Cons: "Headline AND noone knew or was clear on whether i needed to transfer bag myself to Juneyao airline in Shanghai. Was told by 800 number no but turned out yes. Friend thought yes and arrived in Chaing Mai and bag still in China!"
Pros: "Flight was 15 minutes early, which helped with a tight connecting flight. Crew was very kind and understanding to this fact."
Cons: "My seat was switched to a middle seat with no reason or justification."
Cons: "Food. It is a very long time and there no food enough"
Pros: "The flight attendant was cheerful."
Cons: "Logistics. Please figure out how to board a plane on time and have a gate available upon arrival. Neither of these happened for this flight."
Pros: "Gate agents were very friendly and helpful. I appreciate the extra effort made."
Cons: "It's shady to accept payments for the tv's for a less than one hour long travel time. No one expects entertainment on a short flight, but when the plane comes with it, it would go a long way to override the required payment. Especially on a delayed flight on the first night of the NCAA tournament. Nickel and diming is TACKY in general, but especially from a huge company that really has price gouged the tv access to begin with."
Pros: "The plane was new and the seats were comfortable. It was a decent size plane. It wasn't crowded, so folks could spread out and sleep since it was a late evening flight."
Cons: "There were only about 12 people on the flight, and they made 6 of us wait past boarding time until the others arrived. I wanted to get on and get settled, so this was an annoyance to me. There was no beverage or snack service, which I assume was because it was a short flight. However, my itinerary showed a longer flight, so I didn't pre purchase any beverages, I was thirsty the entire flight."
Pros: "I really had been a good experience with you I don't really had that much to complaint, the only personal I will re-trained to be more polite and understanding will be the people's or employees who make us as loyal costumer to have a hard time for a few onces. They need to be a little more understanding not just to judge everybody equally for who we are traveling to"
Cons: "Being treated like I was during somethings wrong just because a had a few onces on my luggage and I was traveling to a third word country"
Cons: "An hour and a half delay is never fun."
