Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Boarding process"
Cons: "The head phone jacks were loose so watching a movie was extremely difficult. The aisle is so small you can’t even walk down it without bumping people who are seated. It seemed like none of the crew wanted to be there."
Pros: "Plane was changed Seats which we choose were not given to us. My wife’s seat did not recline!!"
Cons: "Seating was poor"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"
Cons: "delayed and lost luggage! thanks"
Pros: "Arrived at destination safely."
Cons: "Erratic flight info- first it was on time, then 45 minutes late, then 5 minutes late. Plane had crumbs and peanuts all over the floor when we boarded. Flight was very turbulent."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "We experienced flight delays, lots of turbulence, and my knees were pressed up against the seat in front of me the whole duration of the flight. They also overbooked the flight, so some people had to take a flight the following day."
Cons: "We had a two hour delay causing me running through the London airport to make my flight only to sit in the airplane for an hour because someone decided at the last minute not to travel. In the end, my only two bags didn’t make it. So inconvenient."
Pros: "The attendant in first class was really good at his job. The rest seemed a bit lost"
Cons: "The food. The "lasagna" looked and tasted like it came from chef boyardee can"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "More space in coach between seats"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Pros: "High level service"
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Pros: "on-time, courteous flight staff"
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."
Pros: "The rest was as usual"
Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"
Pros: "AA got me home safe."
Cons: "Entertainment was nonexistant. Most movies were unavailable and those that were would start and then say “no longer available” monitor did not work. I was not the only passenger with issues. Many could not get system to work. Antiquated and/or poorly maintained. Also, announcement made it seem as if you had to pay for wine/beer/spirits. I wasn’t drinking so it didnt matter but at other times this would have been a hassle. Never had this on an international flight. Flight was okay just not top drawer like it used to be. Cost cutting measures have impacted the brand. Would not say it is first tier. Dont mind a “no frills” flight if it results in lower cost to consumer (aka Southwest Airlines)"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and courteous. Can't ask for more than that."
Cons: "It was an older plane with no entertainment screens. Also, was charged a ton of money to check in a bicycle: $150. It's only $75 on Southwest. Lame."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not a lot of snacks"
Cons: "Boarding is always awkward on any airline. If you boarded back to front and deplaned front to back, time and aggravation would be reduced."
Cons: "Do you even look at what happens after we pay for your services?"
Cons: "The breakfast was not very good. I would have liked more fruit and maybe a real regular muffin."
Pros: "Crew was great. All flights and connections on time and easy."
Cons: "Food - better to stick with basics in coach. Entertainment - too conservative boring."
Pros: "Nothing special about the flight"
Pros: "My Business Class upgrade."
Cons: "Needs better snack selection."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and the entertainment was quite good. New movies, international films, and games kept me happy from boarding to landing."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about really. I thought that the flight attendants did a great job."
Pros: "Good personnel"
Cons: "No individual video screens, no choice of movies - as if we're back in the 1990s! Unheard of for a transcontinental flight! Be sure to bring your own entertainment! Gluten Free breakfast was useless - yoghurt which I couldn't eat + underripe fruit. Be sure to bring your own!"
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Old plane, broken entertainment system, and blankets were not clean on a 9 hour flight."
Pros: "New and Updated plane, great service, great crew."
Pros: "The new clean plane. The pilot and crew were great."
Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."
Pros: "Crew and promptness. Roomie seat."
Cons: "No cellphone charger. No movie screen at the seat."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Cons: "The fact the flight was delayed for 5 hours due to weather."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment consoles were nice with a great selection of recent movies, which was nice since the flight was 12 hours. The food was alright but nothing to write home about."
Cons: "The seating space was much more cramped than the JAL flight I took over to Japan. It was awkwardly close to your neighbor when getting adjusted with seat belts and such. This would have been OK for a shorter flight but a bit too close for comfort for a 12 hour one."
Pros: "The crew was very good. The pilot kept us updated on the turbulence and reasons for delay on food and beverage service."
Cons: "It was difficult to hear what the staff was announcing during boarding. They were not speaking clearly and loudly enough to hear."
Pros: "Entertainment system is good."
Cons: "Flight was over crowded with baggage. Some people were allowed to board with 3 cabin bags and others weren't allowed to bring any on board."
Pros: "My trip was awesome and very easy."
Cons: "Unprofessional, rude, unorganized, & just ridiculous!!!!"
Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "Loved the idea of a screen in front of me, but mine didn't work"
Cons: "my first flight was delayed by 4 hours so I automatically missed my connection. i called american to reschedule my flight for the next day in order to spend the night at my house and not have ro ask for hotel, they said no problem. when I go to she counter to explain they said that they would put me on a later flight and that they where sure I would make it. when I arrived miami I had missed my connection and they did NOT cover the hotel expenses they rebooked me for the next day at 5pm. no food no hotel no nothing. the next day I arrived at the airport counter the people at the american airline's counter did not want to let me thorugh because I had a one way ticket... after explaining for over 25 minutes they let me go.... the miami gloght to Bermuda then was also delayed for a total of 2 hours and they changed gates 8 times from one end to thw other and so on.... the worst service ever........"
Pros: "Great steward with fabulous sense of humor"
Cons: "Advertised fare I purchase was for economy, where I would have a checked back and be able to pick my seat. I found out the day before that the airline wasn't offering either, even though I paid for it."
Cons: "Delay could have been handled correctly. I should have gotten compensation for the 3 hr delay and the 9 hr delayed departure from SFO to PDX"
Cons: "On time departure. A comfortable seat."
Pros: "Crew was nice, attentive, courteous and professional. We arrived on time, landing was fought (night landing) and all of our luggage arrived with us."
Cons: "Airlines are nickel and dimeing the customers. Everything is being charged and many times you find out the hard way. I will avoid United due to their charging procedures and rigidity in their application of their billing."
Cons: "Not having an eight hour delay due to poor scheduling of the airline."
Pros: "Seat held up nicely for 17 hour trip. Legroom was satisfactory in economy."
Cons: "Food was not special and portions rather stngy. Fur length if flight larger portions and an extra snack would be great. ANA 13 hour flight had larger portions and same number of meals Entertainment was mediocre. Current releases of movies would be great."
Cons: "75 minute delay on tarmac. At least no connection to make so it worked out but still not a good situation."
Pros: "With the amount of bad press that United has, I did not expect much. However, flight was on time, everybody was polite, movie selection was excellent (several classics, box office hits, comedies etc, they even appropriately put "Die hard" under Winter Wonderland), food was good and salted caramel ice cream for dessert was a very nice touch."
Cons: "Tiny seats. My God, would it hurt to have TWO arm rests? I ended up sitting for 8h crooked to the right, just to avoid touching the guy beside me."
Pros: "We had a two hour delay due to mechanical issues. Long time to fix it,"
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."
Pros: "My wife and I flew Lufthansa a good deal in the 1970s and 80s, we stopped in the early 90s because I was working with young people and had difficulties provided them with a non-smoking environment. This is the first time I have used Lufthansa since 1992. Based on the flights over and back, I believe we will start using it again."
Cons: "Experience with partner airlines is not as good as with Lufthansa directly. I mean, Austrian and United. They do not provide the same attention to detail, courtesy, or organization, particularly pre boarding and boarding."
Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."
Pros: "Made up all delays in the air"
Cons: "1) a 5-hour flight to Honolulu was delayed for 6 hours due to mechanical problems, twice! First plane had issues and we had to change to another plane, found issues again before being taxied. Poor maintenance United! Are your planes even safe? 2) United first class is terrible! It isn’t even near first class standard with very tight seats and rude flight attendants. Absolutely zero service! No more United!"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal was not very good."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed scheduled to leave at 6:30 left at almost 9. Small updates with not much information. Entertainment system not functioning. Had to get a tow to the gate after landing??"
Pros: "Landing in Dulles"
Cons: "Poor boarding - had to walk steps with luggage, board a bus and wait for 10 mins in hot weather, then had to walk steps to plane with luggage. Plane - no place for cabin baggage and people had stuffed inefficiently their bags; crew did not seem to care Crew - did not care, pointing fingers at people like they do not know English, no sense of pride or commitment in their job; they might as well thrown food at us Food - bad, lucky we were hungry Entertainment screen - not working well Flight was smooth I do not know why Lufthansa partners with United Airlines."
Pros: "The gate agent in Syracuse was a huge help. I have a service dog and he was very helpful and considerate."
Pros: "The crew was all very polite, attentive and helpful. They were troupers amid a flight gone bad."
Cons: "My wife and I booked a round trip to California from Connecticut. We had a layover in Dulles with plenty of time to change gates. We arrived at our gate and established our place in the waiting area. We were then required to change gates; this was not horribly stressful as the gate was near by: However, on the return flight things changed. Keep in mind that my wife has arthritic hips and knees and I have arthritic knees. Arriving at Dulles, we went to our waiting area at Gate C-19 and ordered a breakfast at a nearby kiosk. Before our order was ready an announcement stated that our gate was changing to D-24. We waited for our order but had to leave the coffees behind because the lids did not fit correctly and we didn't want to spill them on ourselves while hurrying to the new gate (about a mile away). We finally got to that gate and boarded the plane. We wanted to wait to eat our food until we were airborne. We waited on the plane for about 45 minutes in the heat. During that time the "gate attendant" announced that they were waiting for that pilot who could not be found but was in the airport. At the same time my United App on my iPhone messaged me that there was a mechanical issue with the plane and we were waiting for another plane. At the 45 minute mark we were told the plane had a mechanical issue and we would have to disembark and go to Gate D-1 (about 1/2 mile away). My wife and I were already exhausted and needed to stop, but we did not know how long we had before boarding the new plane so we pushed onward. We then were told the plane would be a couple hours and that there was snack and water at no charge. My wife and I proceeded to dissect our breakfast sandwiches to eat what ever was still less than discussing. The new plane arrived and all else went well. We were delayed over 3 hours but made it to Connecticut; exhausted and sore. We had been awake for over 29 hours by the time we hit Hartford, CT. This experience will linger in our minds for a long time and travel by United my not be possible for us. We are very traumatized."
Pros: "Enjoyed the changes in landscape as we flew over"
Pros: "The flight arrived. Pilot did well with turbulence and cross winds at landing."
Cons: "Flight left 30 minutes late, seats were terribly uncomfortable, many passengers had to stand up or walk around just to get out of the seats. Seats did not recline and had very little leg room. I assume the seats are just worn out since I have never had a seat that had such little cushion on a flight."
Cons: "We were an 1hr and 40mins late. It would have been ok but the pilot and crew did say why. United kept me informed by using text messages which were great. They had us sitting down and water could be given until the flights starts but 1 st class recieved all the accommodations which i unstand that is why you pay for 1st class. But honestly the crew could accommodate a class of water to a few passagers. The pilot didn't have to wait 40 mins to let us k now we were waiting on maintenance to sign off on their form. Some of the passage obeyed the rules by turning of our phone. I turn my phone back on when i heard a passager say maintance was required. I would say flight was good sits were smaller than last August"
Pros: "NOTHING AT ALL WHATSOEVER!!!!!!"
Cons: "EVERYTHING!!!!!! I will never fly with united ever again even if it's the last airline left on earth!!!!"
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."
Cons: "I was forced to check in my carry-on bag (and pay). My flight was delayed and therefore I missed my connecting flight. I was unable to change seats, and the United staff were I accommodating to assist with the "Basic Economy" fare."
Cons: "I checked in in advance of arriving at the airport, and the United personnel still made me use the kiosk, and the sit in a line for 40 minutes to drop my bag! Horrific Service!"
Cons: "I booked 2 seats in order to sit next my wife. And the seats were not together. I didn't realized till after booking"
Pros: "I would like to give a rating lower than zero for this airline"
Pros: "The planes appeared to be newer."
Cons: "We had very little leg room and my husband had a sore back after the flights."
Pros: "At gate, staff generously gave me priority boarding because I'm pregnant."
Cons: "We couldn't access the inflight entertainment because we didn't have the United App and you can't download it once the flight has started (flight was operated by United)."
Pros: "At 6' tall I'm not exactly TALL, SLIGHTLY above average yet as hard as I pressed back into the seat I wasn't able to squeeze Even a milimeter of leg room. I spent 2+hrs in moderate pain with no options. The seat sold to me WASN'T big enough for a person talker than 5'10". I felt ripped off. At age 41 I've NEVER had a flight with less leg room. Ever, not on a commuter flight or anything. It was a very painful experience. I had to ice my knee caps afterwards."
Cons: "ZERO LEG ROOM AT ALL. PAINFUL to say the least."
Cons: "Food and crew could be better"
Pros: "Great flight. Everything was on time and went smoothly"
Pros: "Plane was clean."
Cons: "My initial flight was cancelled, then they pushed everyone on to this flight which was then delayed more than 5 hours, then we sat on the tarmac for another hour, and since they crammed 2 flights of passengers on the plane they forced everyone to check their carry-on bags. The plane had 0 TVs or entertainment and the leg room was nonexistent. And on top of all of that, the customer service rep's at the gate were the least helpful people ever."
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like. The whole experience was bad and totally not worth the effort / money."
Cons: "Everything. The whole experience. 1) Delayed flight. 2) Bad boarding experience. 3) No information whatsoever, unless one asks - that too incomplete. 4) Even the WiFi was not advertisement free. That too on a United specific terminal. Really bad service altogether."
Pros: "The stewardess at the back on the plane was very friendly."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "I lost my flight called United and they booked me in another fly with no problem customer service was great definitely I will fly more often on united thank you"
Cons: "The fee ...lol , but is worth it."
Cons: "People carry to many carry-on's and many times to large but the policy is not enforced."
Cons: "I will never fly with your airline! My luggage is damaged, the flight was terrible at informing people about gate change, the food was not edible, do I need to continue. I just wont fly with your company."
Pros: "Staff friendly, quick boarding, organized no delays"
Cons: "Food I know it's not a restaurant but the quality was below expectations when compared to a few other airlines."
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Cons: "United delayed the flight. This information became available about an hour in advance- well after we drove two hours (We live in Montana) to get to the airport. The attendants said / not our problem. I called United's Customer Service number to discuss ways of mediating the delay that resulted in us missing the wedding venue and entire reason we booked the $1400 flight. I again got a "not my problem" response- no the flights can be modified, no we will not provide vouchers, no we really don't care that our poor quality and service cost you and your family tremendously in time, effort, and lost memories. I know we are at the mercy of airlines, but what a painful disappointment. My experience with Delta has been better and I suggest avoiding United Airlines if other flight options exist.... Even consider a very long drive over the use of the airline."
Pros: "Great and on t time"
Pros: "Plane left on time and got in early. Flight crew unusually pleasant. Service fine."
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and had hoped to get an aisle seat. When none of those were available, I chose a window seat. However, when I took my seat, I was sitting next to a wall, not a window. Bummer"
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."
Cons: "My seat cushion was not in correctly and very uncomfortable. Movies were free on my last flight and coat money on this one."
Pros: "Great experience. Quick and well executed boarding/deplaning"
Pros: "Very friendly and great service. Gave us drinks twice."
