Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The view."

Pros: "The flight attendant was amazing and tried to compensate for the other problems of the flight."
Cons: "The air conditioner was broken so the entire flight was extremely hot. The plane was so small that the engine vibrated the seats the whole time. It was miserable to be on the flight."

Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "Same as above. I miss the old days of magazines as some of us cannot pay for the Wi-Fi"

Cons: "Extremely frustrated at having to wait a full hour for baggage to be delivered to baggage claim. Otherwise, fine--the typical comfortless, joyless flight that all airlines provide."
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."

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: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "Airline attendants were friendly and attentive."
Cons: "I sat in a window seat, yet had no window. I travelled with two other people, and none of us were able to sit together. The seats were more cramped than any other plane I had been on. The light above me was not even strong enough to illuminate the words of the book I was reading, so thankfully there was still some sunshine. There was also no in air entertainment, which I feel like is usually a standard on most planes nowadays."
Pros: "Thank you for making this connection available from charlottesville to dulles. It beat driving! Everyone was helpful"
Cons: "Two hours delayed two hours on the tarmac."
Cons: "The crew was terrible. We sat on the Tarmac for over an hour, very limited information. Flight attendants were asked for ETA several times in flight and never gave any information to passengers. At one point saw them taking selfies in the front of the plane service area. Worst service I've ever had in a flight"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Crew did not get all passengers drink"

Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
