Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The boarding was quick, the flight was uneventful"
Cons: "The flight attendants could be friendlier and smile more"
Pros: "Service was friendly. Food ok. Entertainment acceptable for long flight."
Cons: "There is More Variety of entertainment on Delta and American Airlines but otherwise comparable."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Rescheduled on next morning on economy class even though the original tickets booked for business class. No hotel, food voucher, etc. were provided blamed on the weather condition even though the bad weather was 1-2 days ago, and on the day of departure it was air traffic control problems which was stated in cancellation email."
Pros: "My flight was delayed where I would have missed my connection, customer service rebooked on another flight which got me to my final destination early. The upgrades and consistent service is handled very well."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and service was good, which is rare in United!"
Cons: "The dinner was paasable but the breakfast was horrible. Stale croissant. No butter."
Pros: "Nice Airplane and good experience on United Domestic flights. International is another story! It seems many of the senior flight attendants think the passengers are there to serve them vs. the reverse."
Cons: "No complaints about domestic flights. United gets good marks here."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Cons: "Comfort , service,..terrible!"
Pros: "Economy Plus works well"
Cons: "United new seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "okay because it was short"
Cons: "I don't have a tablet to watch movies on. The entertainment didn't accommodateven me."
Cons: "Seats are too small no leg room"
Pros: "After all these years, still love United!"
Cons: "Loved everything!"
Pros: "LOVE the plane! CLEAN!! New and BEAUTIFUL!!!!"
Cons: "Sat and listened the WHOLE trip except when drinks were being served to the private lives of the flight attendants. The didn't pick up trash so everyone had to place their ice and semi full drinks in the nets when it got bumpy for the landing. I watched the flight attendants the whole time- they got paid to converse about everything- here is proof- one flight attendant was complaining that she only had 4 days of vacation and that she never gets called to work- I think I can guess why- and that she has talked to Kaitlyn- I think that was her bosses name?? But she wasn't given more hours. I wish I had ear plugs. The African American lady was so unkind and uncaring. She scollded another African American lady for coming to the back to throw away her trash. She hurt the lady's feelings and made her mad too. The folks on the plane seemed to be too much of a deflection to their personal conversations, but they were successful at ignoring everyone. We had to be careful to not spill liquid on our carry on etc and not hit the cups and such with our knees on the way out. I usually fly Southwest and want to write a letter telling them how great their service is! I apologized to the cleaning crew as the flight attendants told us to not worry about our drinks"the cleaning crew" will get it. How unprofessional to treat others that way. Stop talking! You can get A WHOLE lot done when you aren't sharing your personal life and opinions with each other!"
Cons: "Gate was changed.. Delayed one hour"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Last second gate change. Plane departed and arrived late."
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "two hours late without any reason given, and forced to check my bag on the prior flight to the final destination meaning I can't get it at gate side. Numerous flights to Cedar Rapids through United have been canceled or delayed without any explanation - I don't have faith in United anymore and will not book with them again."
Pros: "The snack boxes are very good. The on flight crew were excellent. The gate crew - not so much."
Cons: "Row 32- seats don't recline. I requested to be sat with my children at booking - we were in different rows 3 of the 4 legs. My TV wouldn't accept cc payment."
Pros: "Seating. It's a new plane."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving and you lost my luggage. I had $40 of frozen smoke meat on it that spoiled and I had no clothes or anything until 11:00 the next day and there was only one transfer for the luggage to make plus they had extra time because the plane was LATE."
Cons: "Having to board and put away carry on thinking the flight will depart soon and then finding out within 15 mins when everyone have boarded and settle that the maintenance delay requires that everyone must evacuate the plane with their carry on luggages. We waited at the gate for nearly 2 hours because the flight clerk told us not to roam far due to continuous updates... It started out as a 30 min delay and ended as a 2 hour delay with gate and plane changes. Had we known it was a 2 hr delay we would have been able to go use the restroom and go eat in between without worrying that the flight will depart."
Pros: "The seats were large and comfortable"
Cons: "I had to ask to get a drink, and was never offered food. Granted it was a red eye, but I was never even offered a cookie. I expected more after paying for first class. Plus, since it was an older plane, it didn't have the power ports they advertise. The guy sitting next to me didn't want to watch tv, but it didnt work and the screen wouldn't go off. They didn't offer him anything as a apology."
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Pros: "Great flight attendants on flight itself."
Cons: "Ridiculous price of flight from OC to SFO, the $200 cancellation fee when cancellation was medically related & notification was over 24hrs. 45minute flight delay."
Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"
Pros: "The flight I actually took, the next morning, was fine."
Cons: "My connection was to the 10:35 pm flight from SF. My preceding United flight, from Chicago, got in late BUT BEFORE 10:35. Fellow passengers and I dashed to catch this shuttle but it HAD DEPARTED EARLY, even though ticket-holding passengers hadn't yet boarded and shuttle crew should have known we were on a delayed flight that had just landed. This was an expensive decision for United (it had to put 4 passengers up for the night) and very inconvenient for the passengers. AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. This shuttle had no more connecting flights to meet. It could have waited for us or, at least, taken off at its scheduled time."
Pros: "The Steward was amazing! He was such a sweet man, I really hope to see him on a flight again in the future. He was so silly and personable to everyone, and did fast service as well. Def a 10.0 and made the flight much more enjoyable. Lots of space on this plane because it's so small. It seems counterintuitive but that means there are less people stop it seems less crowded and more spacious."
Pros: "No problems."
Pros: "On time comfortable seat."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"
Pros: "Take off and landing was 15 mins ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Legroom on the plane was cramped."
Cons: "Gate crew had no interest in helping with layovers affected by flight delay."
Cons: "The snacks where gross."
Cons: "Waiting in S.F. for flight to board. Crew announces flight will be 1 hour and ten minutes late. A few minutes later, announces the pilot is on his way and may be a half an hour late. The gate number was not announced until about a half an hour before boarding. We finally boarded and was told that co-pilot was not at airport. It was a terrible experience with United."
Pros: "There was not enough room for my legs."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "What happened to the 1960s concept of stewerdess?"
Pros: "The flight crew was nice"
Cons: "The flights landing was a fast decent"
Pros: "She saw me boarding with two small kids and came right up with snacks and juice! Much appreciated. Also I really like that you do pre-boarding again for families with young ones. Thank you."
Cons: "Food. You said you have wifi but I was never able to connect. Don't understand."
Pros: "II like the speed of the overall flight. The group was boarded promptly and we leave right one time. Everything was efficient and done in a quick and timely manner."
Cons: "There's no entertainment in the plane whatsoever, but it's understandle. Flights for United are generally cheaper than most so I don't expect anything fancy or entertaining."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early. Not just this time but also the last four times I took this flight. That's what it's all about."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic, went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and satisfaction with every aspect of my flight."
Cons: "My vehicle keys were removed from my checked luggage requiring to pay extensively to have a locksmith come to the airport the next day to create new keys. I slept in the parking lot due to the fact the locksmith could only open the doors and could not cut new electronic keys until morning. I am extremely enraged over this incident. I know the keys were contained in this article due to the fact that the Keychain was left on top, without keys. I could not imagine why someone would remove these keys from my Keychain that holds only those keys. I would like to hear your openion on the matter. Thanks, Alexander Kruse"
Pros: "informative and accurate why we could not take off on time"
Pros: "Early arrival is always good. The crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "The seats are too crowded and the $95 charge for an upgraded seat is too high."
Pros: "I want to thank United for taking excellent care with my mobility issues (broken ankle). From changing the seats to provide wheelchairs, made things much easier."
Cons: "I put food poor as there was no N/A...we did not get anything for the redeye flight."
Pros: "I appreciated the updates and prompt boarding with my flight. It was organized."
Cons: "The crew was very unprofessional. I was NOT offered any drinks and they raised their voices at me to straighten my chair. I guess they assumed I didn't speak or understand English. Don't expect much from them. I'm just glad I got from a to b."
Pros: "Never ever again. Delay after delay, maintenance issues and when you get to your destination, your bag for which you had to pay $25 looks like someone played soccer with."
Cons: "With all the fees I payed, my flight was very expensive. Don't fall for kayak or other sites deals. It's not a deal at all. If you live in Chicago area, fly southwest out of Midway. They'll get you to almost all destinations in US... always on time and no bag fees... plus you'll get a snack"
Pros: "Thank you."
Pros: "The staff were extremely nice"
Cons: "Delays on the Tarmac at both arrival and take off. I would have missed my connecting flight if it hadn't been cancelled anyway."
Pros: "Nothing. Pretty gross plane."
