Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Full bottle of water and continuous refreshments in flight."
Cons: "Connections booked together need more time for larger airports. I had over an hour connection on paper and had to run through the entire airport to even catch my flight. My mother on a separate flight arrived ten minutes before her flight took off even though booking stated a full hour. Also the quality and cleanliness of the plane needs improvement. Lufthansa is normally amazing quality but both flights today were subpar. Bathroom smelled of urine, old and dirty seats with no support. Dirty hand rests and outdated screens which skipped with movies"
Pros: "Amazing crew and service."
Cons: "Seat space extremely low for tall person."
Pros: "Crews was excellent, always refilling water which I can appreciate so much. Keep it up! Loved the United pilot at John Wayne who came out just to say hi, let us know we were in good hands."

Pros: "Lufthansa is a great airline. My problem is Kayak, who sold the tickets to us."
Cons: "You, Kayak, sold me economy tickets. When I checked in online I saw it for the first time that our tickets were Economy Light. So even though we are Frequent Flyers, we payed $220 for three checkin luggages. I intend to dispute this case."
Cons: "I din't like the fact that Lufhtansa company uses double standards for the countries where they have their flights. From USA, San Jose, Ca, to Frankfurt, Germany everything was good (flight on 08/31/2018 - 09/01/2018). They have been very profesional, beganing wih the boarding time untill the arrival in Frankfurt. The flight to Romania was a different story. They haven't been very professional at all. The flight had a delay and nobody said a word. It was just a clerck there who didn't tell to the Lufthansa passengers for a while anything about our delay. So, finally, he said after 15-20 minutes that our fligt will be later, 20 minutes, than the scheduled time on our tickets. They seemed do not care too much about the Romanian passengers."
Cons: "getting fine from DC to Munchen and Munchen to Bucharest, 7 h delayed but we get to Romania. - when waiting for the luggages, guess what? Both luggages are missing. -made the complainment, now we are waiting to show up in Romania and to be delivered at home. -went to pick up the rental car, because of the plane delay, they gave our car away. -after trying several companies, we found a car, 3 times more expensive, but we have a car....yeeyy"

Cons: "My flight was delayed, leaving SNA and I would not make the connecting flight to HNL. Lyn P. at SNA placed me on Alaska Air and I was able to make my connection. Howeer my bag is lost. When I inquire on the 1-800 Baggage resolution number, my bag has not been found yet. It has been 12 hours since my bag was placed on Alaska Air at SNA."
Cons: "I was told to go to gate 10, found out my flight was moved to 15 and missed flight sit at airport over"

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."
Cons: "That my return flight was canceled with no notification after I missed my first flight. I ended up getting a new flight and was never informed that my return flight was cancelled there for when I got to the airport to return home I had to buy another $600 ticket. After buying a new ticket when I missed my first flight (my fault, I know) but I really think I should be compensated for this inconvenience and the lack of notifying me whatsoever."
Pros: "Nothing your Service was horrible"
Cons: "We were in first class first row, the crew kept talking and laughing during the entire flight (this is a 5 hours flight and we landed at 5am). Loud and banging the trolleys (why, everyone is trying to sleep!). We asked them to not speak as loud, but to no avail.... asking for a glass a water was a no no, you could clearly see they were not there to help you... The entertainment system was a vintage tiny TV which did not work well anyway (loss of image...). The seat was half broken. Not sure where the first class experience was. United please do something... Start first with your employees. Send them to Southwest for training..."
Cons: "I thought it was ridiculous you had to pay to watch tv despite there being a monitor in each seat. That was the first time I've encountered that on a flight."
Cons: "I've flown United for years and this was the most cramped plane - I'm 5'9 and I barely fit in the seat with my knees hitting the seat in front of me. Seems as though the seats have also been redone and made thinner - assuming to fit more rows in which results in more uncomfortable seats and far less room. Other than the entertainment on the flight - this was very reminiscent of a Frontier or Spirit airplane ride."
Pros: "Seamless checkin and boarding. We were early to get into Denver and things were on time."
Cons: "Things were a bit crowded and options for food were limited"
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: "We made up late departure and arrival was close to ontime."
Cons: "Tight seating and luggage overhead bin storage too small. Our bins were already full with others bags when we boarded. Wonder why the bins above your assigned seat would be used by other passengers."
Cons: "The flight was late, the seats have less leg room and the passengers were crabby"
Pros: "Arrived about 15 mins early. Not bad"
Cons: "Left late one hour."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "Nothing everything was fine"
Pros: "Punctual departure and arrival"
Cons: "The A319 that was used appeared quite tired. Strange irregular banging noises were heard and felt under the wing root area as jet taxied out of Santa Ana. After landing, a very high pitch squeal started and lasted 5 minutes after engine shut-down. Finally, there was a very loud "sawing noise" coming from under the aircraft after parking in the terminal that others commented about the loud sawing noise. Canadair aircraft was much nicer and quieter that was used from SFO to Santa Ana."
Pros: "Being a red eye, they were too busy congregating among themselves and chatting away.. when requested for a beverage, the service was as though they were doing a big favor and the guests on-board were disturbing them..!!"
Pros: "I love how polite and efficient your employees are. I was immediately offered assistance with baggage check in and with using the kiosk. You should be very proud of these staff for they represent United well. I thoroughly enjoyed every member I met.Thank you for a 100% wonderful experience."
Pros: "Did not have the entertainment app but didn't know I needed to download it before the flight."
Cons: "Crew was not prepared for boarding."
Pros: "The aircraft"
Pros: "Great customer service, loved the Halloween outfits.!"
Cons: "Not enough room to write my opinion !!!"
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!"
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."
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: "Flight crew was great. Easy, quick boarding."
Cons: "$25 for the first checked bag is a ripoff."
Cons: "Wifi on the first flight was great, unable to view any entertainment on the connecting flight"
Pros: "The price...for once, a weekend to SF was reasonable!"
Pros: "No problems."
Pros: "On time comfortable seat."
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "We had to land in San Antonio due to bad weather (understandable), but the customer service was appalling. They kept passengers on the plane for 3 hours and 45 minutes, which is prohibited by federa law. They failed to provide additional snacks when the passengers were on the plane for over 7.5 hours, and made it seem like it was such a nuisance when we asked for water. They were able to pass out one cookie by hour 6 but the flight attendant made it VERY clear that they had to do "so much paperwork" to get it approved. The flight attendants were rude, inconsiderate, and when asked what the game plan was after our 4 hour delay, their response was, ""not sure, not my department." If they didn't have answers, that's fine, but the manner and careless tone in which they replied was inconsiderate and insincere. When we finally landed at our half way destination in Houston, the flight attendant made a comment about how she can't get home due to all of the delays without considering that half of the passengers had the same dilemma and paid hundreds of dollars for their flights! The flight attendant had no empathy or respect and I would NEVER take this airline again. We spent the night at the airport and are still trying to find a flight to our destinatiom in New York :("
Cons: "The snacks where gross."
