Boarding was orderly the different groups waited in rows. Older gentleman greeted us with Merry Christmas as he took our tickets. Overall nice feeling.

LAX

Mediocre 3.6

Pros: Everything was fine until the passenger for seat 1E boarded

Cons: I paid EXTRA for comfort. I paid $89 to select my seat (1F). A very, very LARGE lady boarded the plane shortly before the door was closed. She was assigned to seat 1E. After some difficulty and struggles she was able to fasten her seatbelt. The gentlemen who was in seat 1D disappeared. I was LITERALLY unable to sit back comfortably in my seat because of this lady's size. Her body spilled over my armrest. I could not get comfortable at all. From Los Angeles to Atlanta I was miserable. I firmly believe that if someone is of a certain size, they should be required to purchase two seats. Why should I have to suffer when I paid extra to have a comfortable flight? So unfair.

Pros: Flight attendants were nice and provided good service

Cons: Overbooked flight. No preassigned seats and staff was rude and unaccommodating. Not enough time to make connection. Had to run to make connection and no room for carry-ons once we got there. We didn't get to sit together. Both got middle seats in different rows. Had to pick up carry-on luggage at baggage claim. Will never fly United again.

EWR
MSY
Good 6.6

Pros: Crew was efficient and personable.

Cons: Two and a half hour delay leaving EWR because aircraft was late from prior destination. UAL said FAA limited flights coming in due to weather. Although scattered light rain, no seemingly unusual weather at EWR. No special reward once on the flight to make up for that delay (I.e. still charged for snacks and alcoholic drinks). Delay was very frustrating. Also, not a fan of selections on United WiFi entertainment - very limited.

Cons: United Airlines were curt and unhelpful. The refused to allow me to board my flight unless I arrived at least 1 hour before takeoff. There were 57min until takeoff after I checked in at the counter. I have a trusted traveler card and TSA express.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
