Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "United is the literal worst. Economy basic where you are forced to check and pay for your carry on?! Horrible service in the terminal, staff more interested in their phones than helping. Wifi didn’t work. I’m the future I will pay more and fly anyone else. Never making this mistake again."
Cons: "Changed our reserved seating"
Cons: "Wifi only worked for a half hour, we paid extra to bring carry on bag, and the're was no space in the plane, had to send it in the cargo."
Pros: "Meals were decent."
Pros: "Everybody was wonderful. All the staff were friendly and the flight was great."
Cons: "I volunteered to gate check my instruments (which I NEVER do because it’s not my hobby, it’s my livelihood). When I did, I made very clear that I’ll ONLY do it if it’s handed to me at the gate when I arrive. It CANNOT go into baggage claim because it’s 2 $3000, left handed, vintage Paul McCartney basses packed in one bag. The gentleman assured me that I’d have it handed to me upon arrival. It isn’t designed to go through the rough handling of people I’ve never met or trusted. So I got to Denver and waited at the gate until someone told me, “oh no that’s gonna be down in baggage claim” Needless to say, I’m scared to death and I don’t even know where $6000 worth of instruments of mine, is right now. I wish people would communicate when they promise things."
Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Cons: "One crew is rude while I was ordering food while she is delivering the beverage after the order time. She simply told me they don't have what I want to order and leave. After 5 mins, I pushed the service button and nobody responded. After half hour, I ordered the food from another crew passed by. After I landed, they suppose to return my stroller set at the airplane gate. But they said it is not there, ask us to wait at the airport gate. We walked outside and they broadcasted again, I didn't hear very clearly but followed most parents to walk out. We wait at the baggage claim for almost 1 hour and finally, the baggage crew came back to the gate and found our stroller."
Pros: "The price, the mango sorbet, short flight into Belgium, the coffee, the water being offered often"
Cons: "The tray was very dirty and obviously had not been disinfected from the previous flight. So I brought it to the attention of one of the crew members, and I felt like she made fun of me in front of other passengers for not liking my tray dirty; and she got a little paper towel for serving, wet it with a bottled water, and wiped my tray quickly. Not hygienic at all and not a word of apology. AIR FRANCE is so much better when it comes to customer service! Also I did not like the constant interruption on the speakers, very loud in my headsets and difficult to watch a movie on tiny screens. The crew members seemed very bossy and uncaring, if not actually rude."
Pros: "economy plua has a reasonable amount of room, good food for breakfast, nice movies in flight."
Cons: "they canceled our flight to hanaeda and instead had us take an hour later flight to narita which is a 1 1/2 hour $30 bus ride away which they don’t pay for. this caused us to miss our connecting flight to Asahikawa, the last flight of the day. The connection time allowed was not nearly enough even if the plane had not been an hour late and there are no flights to asahikawa from narita. yo have to transfer to hanaeda. remind me not to fly United to Tokyo again as I’m pretty sure the flight was canceled because it was not full enough. Even the narita flight with all the hanaeda passengers rebooked on it was not full. So i suspect this may be a relatively common occurance on the hanaeda flight."
Pros: "I haven’t flown international in a while and things seemed to have improved quite a bit in all the above categories."
Cons: "The seats back was designed too soft, so every time I grabbed my laptop which I stored in the pocket in front of me, the person seating in front thought I was kicking/kneeing her. I also experienced the discomfort from someone getting an item from the seat pocket behind me. Not great for long flights when trying to sleep!"
Cons: "Late flight. No support to find back-up flights. No help with tips of how to navigate chicago airport to hopefully get to connecting flight in timely manner. Shuttle service could have been mentioned. The area of the airport I would need to get to in Chicago was not known. Although thr flight to Chicago was by far not full Iwas denied my request to take my roll on on the flight. It fits under seat. I am 70 and had to run across the airport."
Pros: "Entertainment had good choices. I was very comfortable in the chairs. The crew was overall friendly."
Cons: "Wish the entertainment came with tablets already installed instead if for purchase. Would be nice to have gluten-free options for snacks. Since my first flight was delayed and I barely made it to my connection, I had no time to grab something to eat at the airport. And being celiac, there was only a nut and fruit mix. Not enough to substitute for a meal. My biggest complaint however is with 3 hours left of the flight, i turned on the call button to request a beverage and nobody came. I waited 45 minutes, having to turn on the light 3 separate time because it automatically must have timed out. I couldn't get out of my seat due to seat belt sign. I looked back into the rear galley and 5 attendants were back there talking. Tried to get their attention. Nothing. Finally, I got up and went to get my own drinks. Being a server at hotel in waikiki, I understand that customer service is very important. And though I understand that they may have been busy and unable to answer my call, I could see that clearly was not the problem. They were just standing there and chatting. Very frustrating. Though they were friendly, they just simply weren't paying attention. I have to say in all honesty, I will not be recommending nor flying United airlines again."
Pros: "One of the staff guys was nice"
Cons: "It was quite late"
Pros: "Service was excellent"
Pros: "Check in was super easy. Seats are tiny. The screens on the backs of the seats are annoying, with nothing worth watching."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was untime and the staff courtious"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The flights were late and annoying"
Cons: "Same as above same as above"
Cons: "I was informed at check in that I could not bring a carry on bag. Therefore, I had to pay to check my bag. However, all other passengers on the plane brought carry on bags. Then, upon arrival in New Orleans, my bag failed to arrive. My bag was still in Chicago."
Cons: "Multiple delays"
Cons: "I don't like this trip at all, when my mom arrive to make her check on they charge her 25 dolares for her firs baggage, when it was always free, it is not about he money it is about they didn't tell when you buy the ticket and she is 70 years old, she just have with her the necessary thats why I pay for her trip"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Couldn't get the tv to turn off, was making me feel nauseous. Seats don't acutally lean back to a comfortable level."
Pros: "Gate agent handled impossible situation well"
Cons: "flight was canceled due to mechanical problems on two of the airplanes"
Pros: "The staff was wonderful"
Cons: "Bummpy ride"
Pros: "Everything was on time!!! I flew in the new airplane with the adjustable seats coach and I was comfortable!!! This is a huge difference from a couple of years ago when I totally refused to fly this airline due to the the small uncomfortable seats when I was flying from NY to LA. The service was amazing - every person from the kiosk help to the suitcase attendant who found my forgotten duty-free purchase after arrival. I had the best experience flying United - they really stepped up their game!!! No complaints!!!"
Pros: "Other than the boarding issues, it was a pretty standard flight. Left early and got to Newark early."
Cons: "I thought the boarding process for the United Flight departing from Owen Roberts International was very very poor. I understand it is a small airport catering to different destinations in the world but the boarding process was chaotic. The lines were all blending, they started the boarding process very early, many people were still going through security."
Pros: "Wheelchair service was so helpful for my mother. Beverage service was nice. Snacks were overpriced, cheese platter was at least tasty."
Cons: "Seats in your 737-800 are very uncomfortable. My back actually hurt to the point where I had to try to shift positions. Wi-fi would be better than the satellite tv. The charging outlets are located in a place where only a three year old could reach, sure you've got them, but what is the point?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, I missed my connection, the flight attendant did not care one bit, she was a bit rude, the food was horrible."
Pros: "I traveled on a weekend during which I experienced numerous flight cancellations and was stuck for a couple of days on two separate nights. I flew United and American that weekend. United Airlines staff was the most empathic and apologetic to.me, even though they had no control over the weather. I didn't expect any accommodations for all of the changes...just a little understanding...and that's what they gave to me. I did let AA know how disappointed I was in them just for their lack of compassion. Thanks"
Pros: "Small planes make it easier to embark and disembark. It was on schedule on both legs, but changing terminals (on a bus) for the connecting flight was a drag."
Cons: "These are very small planes with little seating room. Thankfully, the flight was very short. C"
Cons: "I missed my connection in DEN to DSM by MINUTES!!! The flight crew from OAX to DEN would NOT ask for the flight to DSM to wait. We were only 2gates away!!! So much for the friendly skies."
Cons: "I didn't make this flight."
Pros: "The crew, complimentary food and drinks. Love UNITED"
Pros: "Crew were very professional"
Cons: "The wait to get to the gate was hard. After a 3 hour flight we had no gate as another plane took our assigned gate then another gate had a broken gangway so we had to use "air stairs" to depart"
Pros: "Both flights were great! They left on time, the one from San Diego left earlier than scheduled. Kayak was most informative with flight info and upon arrival, indicating the bagage claim number via email!"
Cons: "N.A. Everything was great."
Cons: "There were a lot of children on the flight."
Pros: "The food the free alcoholic drinks it was a short flight from Panama city to Quito but they gave you all the free drinks you wanted and a nice meal in like an hr flight, stewardesses were great as well top customer service, live copa, no entertainment but that's OK on a short flight"
Cons: "nothing, likes everything quick flight drinks pretty stewardesses, all my airline dreams fulfilled"
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
Pros: "Help from crewvand updates on delayed flight"
Pros: "The flight was fast and the crew was nice."
Cons: "The boarding took forever"
Pros: "Never on Air Canada again. Food was miserable. They literally told me that they ran out of food (on the flight from Montreal to Casablanca). No kidding. They told us that the flight was full and no more food was available! When we asked for water, they did not bring water. I am not sure if they were out of water because the flight was full! That would be something! Bathrooms were not usable. Utterly dirty. My six-year old daughter refused to use the bathrooms. Water was flowing and the smell was horrible. They should clean that. I can go on but what is the point???"
Cons: "The list would be too long. So, what did I like is a better question in this case. Honestly, I am not even sure if I liked anything. I mean some people were nice, but why? Do I expect people to be rude? I mean, I need to like something extraordinary, something that others don't do. I can't remember anything remarkable. Just nothing."
Cons: "Almost a 4 hour delay. Good weather across the country so this was clearly Uniteds problem."
Pros: "No complaints here. Smooth flight going back home. Plane was clean and flight crew were very professional."
