Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "When it finally took off the flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Plane was delayed coming in, then we were told we were waiting on catering. Then it became a weather issue. Then we boarded. Weather got worse so they took us off. The second time we boarded and were told we’re waiting on catering who wasn’t on site then had to go through airport security. After 3HOURS , we were asked to leave the plane. For rebounding the next morning with no explanation. The next morning the flight was delayed an additional 3HOURS. We were never given food in all this time of a wait. This became an 18+ hour delay. We definitely missed our connection and they rebooked it."
Pros: "Every thing is with time No delay"
Cons: "Drop-off bagage agent made me line up to get a new baggage tag even though my luggage had been checked up to my destination via COPA Airlines. A United Airlines check-in agent told me that the baggage agents don’t work for the airline therefore didn’t know what to do. These people need add training."
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 3 hours. When I was at the gate having the rest of my flights updated, the agent at the counter failed to properly transfer my bags to my connecting flights and as a solution requested that I speak to the Customer Service agent in Chicago to have my bags rerouted. That's where the unpleasant experience continues..."

Cons: "have been stranded by Air Canada in Toronto en route to Tel Aviv for what will be at least two nights. Let me preface this by saying that I travel regularly and have never experienced anything like what has transpired over the last 36+ hours. I've been unable to get to my work and unable to return home to my two young children, stuck in international limbo. The thing that really galls about my whole experience, though, has been that the actions as well as tenor of the interactions with almost every single Air Canada customer service representative has been deplorable. No one has even apologized for the inconvenience, let alone taken ownership of the situation to fix it. My experience as a customer has been reprehensible. I was scheduled to travel from Los Angeles to Tel Aviv through Chicago and then Toronto. The problems started in Chicago. My layover in Toronto was scheduled to be brief and I became concerned when the flight in Chicago did not board on time and no information was given. Some time later (maybe 20 minutes, although, to be honest, I was not concerned enough at that point to be checking) we were told there were maintenance problems. I immediately went to the counter and asked about other possible routes to Tel Aviv as it was clear that I would not make my connection. While missed connections happen all the time in travel, I have never encountered airline personnel who were so disinterested in helping. My immediate stop was the Air Canada service desk. The man there started to look for solutions and then passed it off to someone else as he got frustrated that it was not a simple route. She in turn asked if I could find someone else to help. But this was the service desk! So she begrudgingly went back to it. She put me to the side to help other passengers and told me to go get food and not to hover. I stood to the side and checked back and she had not come back to the task. Neither had the man I first worked with. By this point well over an hour had elapsed and they conceded to help as another family in the same position came up and also asked for assistance. They began trying to reroute us and then the flight cleared and we were able to board. We did not want to but they told us that there would be someone waiting at the jet bridge to expedite the connection to Tel Aviv and that we had made it just in time. We did not trust him and said so and he assured us that they would hold the plane for our flight. This did not happen. The Air Canada agent flatly lied to us. There was no one waiting to help get us to the gate. They did not hold the plane. I ran through the Toronto airport at sprint speed and left the other family to try to hold the plane for us all. They had already given away my seat despite my having checked in, paid for an extra legroom exit seat, and begun travel on the original itinerary. Thus did I miss the flight to Tel Aviv."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "I cannot believe that there is a charge now for entertainment on even long flights. Complimentary drinks only and a pretzel snack bag. No information was available to forewarn the passenger they should bring their own."
Pros: "It doesn't matter what I do, with United I always end up in Group 4."
Cons: "The scrum to get my small bag into a large overhead bin full of almost suitcases"
Pros: "The crew was always striving to make sure the flight was as comfortable as possible. They have me a couple perks for being in the military and that made my flight very enjoyable. I will definitely start flying with United more often"
Cons: "No bad comments on my behalph"
