Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Hated the tight seating, very narrow, so uncomfortable; Couldn't sleep and I WAS FREEZING. Ended up with a terrible cold and sore throat. Angry that I had to pay $100 each way for my second checked bag. Terrible policy. Probably won't fly anymore, if I can help it!"

Cons: "The sit was so croweded"

Cons: "VeRy long flight that didn’t need to be as long. Small plane. Hard landing and very quick stop where where everyone screamed."

Cons: "power plug didn't work"
Pros: "Free World Series viewing"

Pros: "Everything was fine, there was nothing exceptional about the flight."

Cons: "The 777 has the smallest seats ever!! Horrible flight!!! Seats are made for midgets!!!"
Pros: "quick boarding"
Cons: "no outlets!"
Cons: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline and I was having a broken leg in a cast I had to keep straight"
Pros: "Male flight attendant was so genuinely kind to an elderly couple next to me. Female was nice as well. Seat more comfortable than last flight. Flight on time."

Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Crammed unconfortable"
Pros: "Staff was wecoming and friendly"
Cons: "Couldn't even access united's flight map without paying for movies. Seats are very small, large neighbor next to me used my armrest the whole flight and generally spilled into my seat."
Pros: "Missed my flight so I ended up staying overnight in the airport to catch the 5:25 am flight the next morning. One of the cleaning staff found a blanket for me which really helped since it was incredible cold in the airport."
Cons: "Security line at BWI is extremely long and under staffed compared to other airports. There was not enough legroom and the flight attendants pressured people to check baggage when there was plenty of room on the flight to stow luggage."
Pros: "The snack mix. The power outlets underneath my seat."
Cons: "The steward wasn't very friendly and had a curt attitude when I had any requests for water and a refill of water. I didn't like that you needed the United app in order to watch in flight entertainment. That should be specified before getting on the plane because had I known I would have downloaded it to watch movies. Rather you MUST purchase the internet to download the app once in the air and that was just frustrating to find out an hour into a 5 hour flight. The lack of snacks. There is no variety, I had no idea what I was getting and the offerings they did have felt very restricted. Leg room was atrocious. Especially because we had no overhead room to store our backpacks which meant we had to place it under the chair in front of us. I am relatively tall so I wanted to stretch out my feet under the chair in front of me but they had to straddle my fat backpack and the gentleman who sat in front of me was very large and he kept kicking and hitting my feet underneath his chair."
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Your entertainment sucks everything cost so much. There is NO leg room. Your planes I think are old needs to be updated."
Pros: "On time/early"
Cons: "My seat belt buckles had a crusty green slime on the inset table part--probably gum, but maybe something else."
Pros: "great crew great flight and in flight service."
Cons: "The only negative was that after waiting to taxi (for almost 10 minutes), we received an announcement that it would be a little longer because they realized that the had yet to re-fuel the plane. That was somewhat alarming."
Pros: "Online confirmation"
Cons: "My seat assignments were changed and we were at the end of the plane next to the bathroom. I know I didn't put those. I don't like the fact that you have to pay for baggage and there is no food provided other than a drink and some really poor substitute even for peanuts. Southwest at least allows you to have a free baggage. It's not the fault of the pilot but it also is very bumpy. The flight crew was fine and it's just the uncomfortable aspects of having my seat assignment changed and the extra charges for anything that makes it comfortable."
Pros: "Wi fi movies"
Cons: "Tiny seats. I'm 6'1" and 225. All passengers need more elbow and leg room."
Pros: "Average experience. Mostly pleasant enough."
Cons: "United changed our flight with No chance to object. Then reassigned us to separate seats. We asked to be moved next to each other. We were repeatedly and rudely dismissed 3 times, at 3 different levels, as if we were in the wrong to ask. If not for the kindness of a fellow passenger we would not have flown together. Very poor hospitality training."
Cons: "Terminals were a bit far a part"
Pros: "Nothing, worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Dried throw up on the floor in front of my seat.disgusting. SO MANY FLIES IN THE CABIN!!! Crew seemed like they hated their jobs, were NOT attentive. wasn't cleaned at all. Plane smelled. Charge port didn't work. Tray was extremely dirty. It was the worst flight I have ever had and is making me dread flying United back home."
Cons: "There were 2 ladies speaking Romanian. Being native Romanian speaker, I understood them and the way they talked to each other did not seem professional. Also I heard someone from the crew asking rude questions to some guy such as "- Do you have a gun in your bag right now?" (Heck, that guy was in transit, and he already passed 1 or more security check points before getting to that gate. And even if he has a gun, he would say NO, and your job is not to trust his words, but to check his bag instead...)."
Pros: "Covered the required distance in time"
Cons: "Need individual TV screens. No one came for "Call to attendent" button for 30mins. i canceled it . Just needed water. United and Lufthansa need to look at Singapore airlines. They operate very professionally."
Cons: "Seats are too close together. I could barely fit my knees in, and I'm not an overweight person."
Pros: "Nice cozy seat, but seatbelt was about 6" shorter than most planes-wouldnt fit a medium-large person."
Cons: "Paid a lot for an upgrade, and our bathroom was out of order, the stewardess was snippy, and my expectations were less than met."
Pros: "Sitting in economy plus is definitely the way to go for a trans Atlantic flight. The seats are very comfortable and give me, an average size person, enough leg room to sit for longer periods of time. The inflight videos are great and the staff was exceptionally courteous."
Cons: "United still falls behind on food offerings. Although the food is not unexceptional, it is not the best. Definitely pack snacks if you want to eat healthier and fix your hunger cravings."
