Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"
Pros: "Departure dealyed more than 2h."

Pros: "The crew was amazing! The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Used the self check in kiosk to begin! That was awesome! But after that I still had to stand in line to check in my bags. That part of the process took a bit longer than expected."
Pros: "The crew at the checking counters were very accommodating. Knowing that I had requested a wheelchair, they changed my seat to one that was closer to the door."
Cons: "The flight attendants in my could have been more visible other than just during the food service time."
Cons: "First class seats were too close together. It was very difficult to get out of you seat into the aisle. Food was not what it should have been for 1st class There was no wall between 1st class and coach giving little privacy when I worked my laptop. it was in direct view of the middle seat in coach"
Pros: "The flight attendees were nice and attentive. The entertainment was great."

Pros: "Ryan was great! Very nice and professional, would love to see him on a future flight."
Pros: "Flight from Detroit to Phoenix had larger plane and more entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are so narrow. I barely made connecting flight in Detroit and there was no transportation to the next terminal. You’re on your own getting there and I almost didn’t make it. Both Detroit and Phoenix have nothing but wheelchairs and people pushing? Maybe we Should get some rickshaws?!"
Pros: "Amazing crewkeep"
Cons: "Keep going"
Pros: "The crew was good, when we actually were in the air."
Cons: "A working plane would be nice. It was only an hour delay; any inconvenience there may have been, when it comes to flying, is amplified. I am 6’ 8” and the plane is just uncomfortable."
Cons: "The “newbies” were excited and loud, the main attendant was very.long.winded.every.single.time.she.spoke."

Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."
Pros: "Getting off the plane in Los Angeles"
Cons: "3 small children put in the row behind the exit row kicking the seat backs and slamming the tray tables"
Pros: "Free food. Extra room."
Cons: "Waiting on runway"
Cons: "There was no rhyme nor reason for who boarded first"
Pros: "Everything went great. Flight left a little late but was fine and only arrived a little late. I like the side wings on head rests really help."
Cons: "Seats are always hard on long flights."
Pros: "The flight was great & so was the cruise. Unfortunately my luggage is back in Atlanta & I’m in Ft Laurderdale heading on a cruise tomorrow without my belongings"
Cons: "Not even given a toothbrush or tee shirt to sleep in."
Pros: "Traveling with a 4 year old isn’t always easy. Delta’s flight attendants and the captains controlling the plane were excellent! Safe flight. And the entertainment that is provided for the customers is fun and relaxing. Makes a 4.5 hour flight go by quick. Thank you delta, I will be flying with you in the future"
Pros: "Everything was fine—no worse, but no better. Delta crew could definitely learn a thing or two from Southwest. I haven’t been on a flight with Delta where the crew seemed happy."
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "CRJ-700 is too small. Only one bathroom & it was broken. Hour late to depart & no explanation given. Never turned off the seatbelt sign & we ended up on the plan for approx 2.5hrs for our 1hr flight."
Pros: "The staff at the gate were efficient and very friendly, as were the onboard staff."
Cons: "the inefficiency and extra steps required to travel. Quite lacking in smooth transition between flights, significantly below expectations relative to other airlines"
Pros: "Please offer headphones to people who do not regularly take them in flights."
Pros: "A pretty well-run flight, till we landed and waited on the tarmac for a gate. Otherwise, uneventful. Lunch was decent. Crew was good."
Pros: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Cons: "Over cramped No Space for carry on slow service"
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Seats were to small and uncomfortable for us."
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early. Good boarding experience. Seating had access to electrical plugs for charging my phone."
Cons: "Late and missed my international connection"
Cons: "Delta refused to assign my seats until just before boarding, even though I booked my flights months in advance. This is very stressful and totally unacceptable to treat passengers this way."
Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "The long delay could of been avoided if the Delta counter had lied to me by saying I wouldn't have a problem changing my flight out early once I got into NYC from China Not a happy Delta customer There were delays and no compensation"
Pros: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."
Pros: "Great helpful happy staff, made you feel welcome. Good atmosphere and peaceful. Food excellent."
Cons: "On transatlantic flight , seats comfortable but inadequate recline for a night flight and no footrest."

Cons: "Delayed 12 hours"
Pros: "The flight crew was great"
Pros: "Crew were friendly, half full flight was nice to have room"
Pros: "Movies- pro staff"
Cons: "Individual seat space is small, nor do seats recline much."
Pros: "When flying using the big carriers, Delta is becoming our go to airline for timeliness and comfort."
Cons: "ANYTHING more than what’s being done in economy would be good."
Pros: "The crew were dope"
Cons: "The flight was completely full and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Despite one piece of carry on per passenger they run out of overhead space. The boarding process is unbelievably slow. Far too many with no apparent reason to pre-board are allowed to pre-board . Wanted to buy food were nearly out of any of the choices by row 34 so no food 5:36 minute flight ridiculously poor planning in my opinion. Very little leg room as configured."
Cons: "Flight was late and missed connection. had to stay overnight"
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "Even as I was checking in for the flight, as an economy traveler, I was constantly reminded of all the things I wasn’t entitled to -all boarding was based on how much you’d paid, not where you were sitting. I didn’t expect special treatment, but once you’re at the gate, boarding agents usually treat passengers equally. Not so with United."
Pros: "The service and they way the treat you is the best."
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Custom agents were rude."
Pros: "The food was better then on many airlines"
Cons: "The staff could have been more friendly"
Pros: "Despite delay for wether kept us informed and did everything they could to make up time"
Cons: "It was a red eye flight so we expected the crew to be more sensitive to the fact that people would be trying to get some sleep to help adjust to the time change ahead in England. The crew, one girl in particular was so incredibly loud as she walked up and down that it was impossible to sleep. She shouted over me and my husbands head despite seeing us asleep, to speak to the third person in our row. It made our journey much more difficult and our arrival in Manchester start the wrong way. Really disappointing and totally controllable."
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped planes."
Cons: "We were stuck on runway for almost an hour. Plane was uncomfortably warm. Josh"
Pros: "Crew still came through cabin even though it was an overnight flight to see if anyone needed anything."
Cons: "The way the plane was boarded which I have found is the way United boards."
Pros: "Rude and un friendly stewards"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, flight was on time, all was OK. Nothing to recommend particularly. d"
Cons: "Few choices in beverages and food. No decaf or green tea or coffee except instant coffee. "Snack" was nothing much."
Cons: "AC was broken. They could at least give you a second cup of water. Tired of being treated like an animal"
Pros: "All was good. Flight attendants helpful and friendly."
Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"
Cons: "Very scary flight"
Cons: "United employees could stand to learn some better customer service."
Pros: "The plane was newer at least. And I made a big enough stink when they made me check my bubble-wrapped framed paintings that they actually did get hand carried and made it okay."
Cons: "These are the smallest seats I have ever experienced on a domestic airline. I'm 6'-4" and I couldn't fit comfortably on their newer 737. The thing that took the cake was that the cabin crew absolutely refused to let me take one of the 5 empty exit row seats telling me that it wasn't fair to the people who paid more, which absolutely enraged me. So then apparently it's also fair that their seats will fit someone who is 5'-4" comfortably but not someone who is 6'-4"?? So it's fair that I can't afford to pay an extra $100+ for it after my profession got gutted in the recession and I make a fraction now of that I used to make? Making your customers suffer for no good reason is inexcusable. I will not be flying United again. Ever."
Cons: "Not accommodating"
Cons: "1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."
Cons: "Too cold on board"
Cons: "Delay in boarding"
Pros: "The experience was bad all around. The flight crew was understanding and sympathetic to the situation but offered no concern."
Cons: "The gate agent was not helpful when my flight was running late and was going to miss my connection in Chicago. 10 mins is not enough time to taxi to the gate unload and get to my next flight. The doors close 10 mins before even if it was the next gate the door would have been shut. Had to reschedule flight for not the same day or the next day but two days later! During flight my inflight drink was evening coffee and tasted old as if it had been sitting for a while. Was sat next to a sick ER nurse who was coughing and sneezing in and around the open cup. I was sick for 8 and half days following the flight."
Pros: "Security was great! No hassle and quick. Boarding was on time and fast."
Cons: "Plane was small and cramped. The snack packs of pretzels and things is not very good, it doesn't taste the best and is not healthy for anyone. Had to gate check my one item. Very cold in the cabin even after two hours in flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable and professional crew"
Cons: "Customs was s l o w but overt all great"
Pros: "Everything went well, from boarding quickly to landing ahead of schedule."
Cons: "A mother with 2 fussy babies somehow sat next to me and they were extremely bothersome. Nothing was done to accommodate the crying babies, and we all know how annoying that is."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and welcoming!"
Pros: "Everything was fine except I barely made the flight in Chicago.when arriving in Charlotte I had to wait about 10 or 15 minutes for a wheel chair to get off the plane."
Cons: "Having to wait on a wheelchair so long in Chicago I almost missed my flight and having to wait so long for a wheelchair when I arrived in Charlotte."
Pros: "The crew was very polite"
Cons: "Anything but water was for extra. We weren't even offered a small snack for the price of the flight. My flight was changed three times and it was very cramped. They said there would be entertainment, but it cost as much as a movie ticket."
Cons: "When I attempted to check in for flights using the United app both outgoing and return, I found boarding passes were not available for all flights and had to call United to have reservation adjusted so boarding passes could be issued. Don't know why? but inconvenient."
Cons: "I'm disappointed that I had to pay to watch the flight tracker, that it wasn't a free option and I had to be continually subjected to commercials that were irrelevant to me."
Pros: "It was a pretty smooth flight and it was pretty well organized."
Cons: "The plane was in the Houston hanger most of the day, but it seems they didn't test it. Even after being delayed on the ground due to rain and a mechanical problem with the ramp for three hours, the plane had to turn around and come back to Houston due to another mechanical issue. Finally left 13.5 hours late. I did receive a hotel room, breakfast and 10,000 miles compensation for the hassle, but I would rather have been in Brazil on time."
Pros: "More luggage storage (overhead and under the seats) on this international flight than on domestic. Most everything else was as expected."
Cons: "The toilets smelled and were messy a few hours into it. (I was on a Korean Airlines flight recently and their toilets were always clean and nice!). The crew were mostly efficient and worked well together BUT only one (out of the 4 or 5 in our section) smiled at passengers and looked like she was actually enjoying her job. One blanket wasn't cleaned well enough."
Pros: "I'm handicapped and the help getting from terminal to terminal. The people were very helpful."
Cons: "I have metal leg braces. I had to remove them to get in the seat. So the flight was uncomfortable. It would be nice if the plane could have handicapped seating.I know I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for comfortable seating."
Pros: "Our flight attendant Lei was absolutely fantastic on this flight. After having to run nearly a mile through the Denver airport to catch the connection to Helena after a delay in DSM, I was very warmly greeted by Lei. She regularly checked to see how I was doing through the flight and made sure I was well hydrated. She was a highlight of the entire trip!"
Pros: "Everything except my bag did not make it to destination"
Cons: "Bag did make it to destination"
Pros: "Able to rebook us on delta"
Cons: "Plane was delayed, then mechanical issues made us deplane"
Pros: "The young lady who was the flight attendant was very nice and tried to make a very bad situation somewhat bearable. There were a number of children on the flight that she was very attentive to. I hope united treats their employees better than they treat their passengers."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours. We were told to proceed to the United terminal in spite of the delay. There seemed to be no effort to inform or assist us. There was very little to do in this terminal but wait to see if our flight would eventually come. There were other United passengers in the terminal who were also waiting for overly delayed flights. eventually, we had a plane that was extremely small, cramped and uncomfortable. United seems to consistently oversell its seats and then tried to get people to give up their seats. Very poorly managed airline with bad customer service. Sadly, I have to say that I have never had an acceptable experience on a united flight. Will NOT take another United flight."
Pros: "free booz, entertainment."
Cons: "Why haven't all airlines figured out that the best way to board the plain is from the back? Not only was the plain delayed, they took for ever to board it. But most important the plain was filthy and not from the last flight. So I happen to drop my phone on the floor and notice a pile of rotting moldy fruit between the seat in-front of me and plains hall. The berries looked like they were their for a week as it had mold growing on it. I wish there was a place on this review to upload pictures so that you can see this disgusting mess that my girlfriend and I were trapped on."
Pros: "The flights from Vegas to SF are a great deal, and the flight's only about an hour ans a half long. Get any better than that."
Pros: "Lousy pretzels. We had no choice in a snack!"
Cons: "Seats are for skinny high school kids who are only 5'2"."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and united told us on the phone that all flights were cancelled for the day. I specifically asked on the phone to be moved to an American Airlines flight later that day, and was told that flight would be cancelled. Drove to the airport because I didn't understand how both the flights were cancelled with perfect weather in the departure and destination cities. The people at the airport moved us to the American flight that I was previously told was cancelled. Would have been much easier to do over the phone, but I was lied to on the phone."
Pros: "no delays. quick flight & boarding"
Pros: "San Antonio flight to Denver delayed too long where could not make connection in Denver to Toronto. Had to make other flight arrangements."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "The snacks were kinda small"
