Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Once we took off everything was good"
Cons: "We boarded and pushed off from the gate on time. Then the plane was forced back to the gate because of some mistake the ground crew made when loading the jet. This caused an hour plus delay getting to SFO"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth"
Cons: "Crew was late arriving to what would have otherwise been an on-time flight"
Cons: "I thought that this flight was booked through Luftansa, at least that is what the ticket said. After waiting in line at the Lufthansa desk, I was told that the flight was actually through United, so I had to go and wait in line at an even longer United desk. Then, United charged me $60 for my bag!!"
Cons: "Dang the seats are just small in the coach area. Great smooth flight and my bag arrived where it was supposed to be. Cant complain there"
Pros: "On time, rare for a full flight."
Cons: "A little quicker on the baggage upon arrival would have been nice."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly.Discomport"
Cons: "Discomfort of small space"
Pros: "Friendly attendants and a comfortable flight"
Cons: "Delayed flight and poor food choice"
Cons: "United made me check my carry-on and would not transfer , so I had to wait for it and missed my connecting flight. Then I rebooked on a later flight which was cancelled due to weather. So needless to say I did not get to Ottawa and had to purchase a hotel room in Newark. United is telling me I may not get on another flight until tomorrow night. I am very disappointed."
Cons: "Flight was so delayed we would have missed our connection and been stranded in DC overnight, so we had to push all our reservations back and missed a full day of our vacation."
Pros: "The boarding process went quickly an smoothly and it was a pleasant shirt flight."
Cons: "The taxiing at Chicago took a long time"
Pros: "Having an aisle seat."
Cons: "Being bussed a long way out to the airplane made us depart late. Very inefficient handling by the staff. They should have started earlier. This has never happened to me before on United. What has happened?"
Pros: "Late leaving Houston, but the pilots did a great job landing in very windy conditions."
Pros: "Free drinks and a snack."
Cons: "United entertainment app doesn't work on all devices."

Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and temperature"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and the plane had lots of empty seats"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was awful"
Cons: "Terrible position of the seat. In between bathrooms and crying kids when I had requested the exact opposite. Food was awful. I had a vegetarian meal."
Cons: "I don't have a problem with a flight being delayed for any reason. That is simply one of the hazards of flying. However, the PIT->ORD flight was delayed multiple times for unknown reasons. If the airline would have given a realistic timetable, customers could have managed their time much easier. Instead, United Airlines kept delaying takeoff for 15-20 minutes, multiple times. When they finally get the customers into the boarding process, they act like they're doing you a favor. Poorly managed, customers manipulated."
Pros: "Nice newer plane"
Cons: "Absolutely unprofessional corporate culture is blatantly obvious at United. They have learned nothing, and changed nothing, after their multiple recent failures. Flight attendants on this segment openly mocked and spoke ill of passengers loud enough for many other passengers to hear. I will avoid at all costs in the future."
Cons: "Worst airline meal ever - ok chicken with plain grits and bitter green vegetable (kale?) and a tough dry roll"
Cons: "Booked a cheap flight but United wouldn't allow us to carry on our federally regulated carry on bags because we bought an economy class ticket. Made our flight expensive and will try and avoid United in our future flight plans"
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
Pros: "It was on time and a little early"
Cons: "I had to pay to watch any movies which I didn't and service was aloof."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. I had a layover and the connection was short but thankfully the staff was helpful. I will continue to do business with united."
Cons: "Yyyy Ggggggggggffggvfggggdswfgggfffffrffgfggggfffff"
Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "There were 20-30 empty seats in economy+ they wouldn't let anyone move into them wife and I sat apart with all their bad press how bout a little good will!?"
Cons: "Worst experience of my life's flies. United missed mine and my parents luggage, delivery after 5 days, made us to loose good part of our appointments. Very disappointed with United."
Cons: "I was forced to rent a van with other people booked on a 9:40 PM flight from Newark to Hartford because one and 1/2 hours after the flight should have left we didn't know if it would leave in 1 and 1/2 hours or be cancelled United was trying new software or something that Sunday night and hundreds of flights were affected."
Cons: "Didn't ride. Stuck in Chicago overnight."
Cons: "Original final flight delayed past my connection so I had to be on phone over an hour to remedy"
Pros: "couldn't access wifi. crowded cabin. passengers being loud/obtrusive. long delay for takeoff."
Pros: "We volunteered to be bumped to another flight, but instead ended up on our same flight but with upgraded seats!"
Cons: "Unfortunately the stewardess was a little rude and treated my husband and I sub par compared to the other first class passengers. Yes, we were upgraded from economy but we felt she should have given us the same service as the other passengers. When she passed snacks she quickly put the basket in front and didn't even give us a chance to say no before walking off. Didn't offer refills to us but others were given refills/offered."
Pros: "It was lit and cozy"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "The wait"
Pros: "Telling everyone not to fly United. Thank God United employs competent crew for their planes, please consider doing the same at corporate."
Cons: "Being treated like cattle. Terrible customer service. Not feeding or providing accommodations for the elderly, children, families, and all passengers- regardless of lying about mechanical issues."
Pros: "They gave us free entertainment"
Cons: "We took two hours in taking off"
Cons: "My flight was canceled. I was put on standby for a booked flight. Instead of working with me to actually get a flight they kept wanting to put me on standby for booked flights. After talking with four reps I finally was able to speak with someone who was willing to help. Due to the lack of customer service and 6 hours of searching for someone who was willing to put in some effort, I am not sure I will fly United in the future. I had 48 hrs with my family and spent 24hrs traveling/waiting for a solution."
Cons: "Almost a 4 hour delay. Good weather across the country so this was clearly Uniteds problem."
Cons: "You switched me to an earlier flight without asking is confirming with me. I almost missed the flight, had to check my bag at the gate, and started out my morning scrambling to get to the airport and through security. No one at united could tell me why it was changed. Un believable. This is not the kind of surprise that is welcomed or appreciated."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and I received a lot of updates on my flight infor before my flight"
Cons: "Although I received a lot of flight info about my delayed flight I wouldn't receive it sometimes until right before the time changes. Also we were boarded and still sat on the plane and waited for almost an hour before leaving the Tarmac and received no reason as to why we're still sitting until over 40 minutes of waiting. Also the bathroom water smelled bad and it felt extra small."
Pros: "Tons of food and water. Movies good. Staff on plane were excellent. Clean bathrooms and peacful. Nice that headphones were provided."
Cons: "Seats should not be set to go back so far, if a person in front sets back all way, no space passenger behind. The seats should be calibrated to go back less of an angle."
Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."
