Pros: "Once we were on board. the service was good"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 24hrs which is not the fault of Korean airlines however Boarding was so disorgainsed with no information on the process, almost no priority boarding. We were told that people with boarding passes of the original flight date had to wait for more recent passes. This led many to think that they would be kicked off the flight after waiting 24hrs. Once we did finally board we found that they had made a mistake and had to deboard a passenger resulting in an extra hour delay"

Cons: "the cabin temperature was a little hot. The staff tunred it down after i asked, but even then it was still a bit warm for me. People who are cold can put on blankets or jackets, but people who are hot can't remove clothing, so i think a lower standard temperature setting would be nice."
Pros: "I was not expecting that it exceeded my expectations, it was better than my favorite airline. First time I ever eat all the food they served in an airline. The crew were excellent, they're always there- I don't know if they ever rested throughout the duration of the flight! Not to mention, they are all friendly."
Cons: "Nothing! I wish I won't see things not to like in my future flights with them."

Pros: "I liked the professionalism,courtesy and kindness of the crew. I was impressed with the way they handled their Jonson a flight that ran into a lot of turbulence."
Cons: "I would have liked a better explanation of our meal choices, particularly as it relates to the spiciness of the meal. Simply telling me that my choices are chicken, beef or fish is not enough.

Cons: "The entertainment has limited choice of movies."
Pros: "Great Service Check-in Process Boarding Process Lounge Food"

Their new Business seat on B777 seems much better Security / Immigration in Bali took 2.5h all flights to China, Korea, Japan, Australia seems to depart between 11pm and 2am Breakfast was served 2.5h before landing reducing sleep time"
Pros: "I paid a fair price and got very good service. Seeing there were only middle seats available, the person at the check-in counter gave me the option of an exit row seat with lots of leg room. Slippers, toothbrush, blankets and pillows for everyone, nice meals with Korean and Western options. Wine with dinner. Two checked bag allowance included for American bound flights. The service held up to its reputation as excellent, and the flight attendants are friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The plane only had two bathrooms for the entire economy class. The in-flight movie selection was terrible (although everyone on the plane had their own screen)"
Pros: "Great food selection;just the right amount."
Cons: "Improve sound system;selection of movies & music selections"
Pros: "Spacious seating. I didn't feel crowded. The food on the plane was pretty good too. No complaints. All of the stewardesses were giving a friendly "sawasdee" when we got to Thailand. They provided headphones to each passenger and a pillow as well."

Cons: "Lack of information about getting Visa Schengen to pass a transit hours cost me $300 and loosing my trip"

Cons: "Volume of the PA was so loud it was painful"
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Narrow seats, poor legroom"
Pros: "Efficient crew. It"
Cons: "It was good overall."
Cons: "a coach class seat is a chair of torture!!!!"
Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "Every time I fly to Denver, we land in one terminal and your connection is in another terminal that requires a train ride to get there. ,ayovers are short — generally barely an hour. If the flight is late you stand a very good chance of missing your connection, as I’m betting happened to over half the passengers on this flight. I was the lucky exception — this aircraft was actually the connecting flight too. Why can’t all United connections be in the same terminal? It makes no sense."
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."
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
Pros: "Spacious seating, quickly boarded. Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment, no food, snacks were really stingy."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Snacks are so miserly!!!"
Pros: "I got to my destination."
Cons: "Here is no entertainment. The snacks are minuscule and pretty boring. And we sat on the tarmac at both Houston and DCA for a long time."
Cons: "Over all service was good. Only food what I ordered could not get. My requirement was vegetarian without onion, garlic and mushroom. There was mushroom in the food."
Pros: "We liked the crew, they were helpful."
Cons: "We did not like the video on the United flight that used the app. We were not told about this until it was too late and the instructions were not good for how to get the app--they were misleading. I had to go to the app store, not the United website. Also, our seats were changed without our knowledge and the flight description for the flight from Austin to Washington, DC, specified complimentary lunch and there was no lunch unless you wanted to buy it. This should be more clear, so that I can bring my own lunch if there will be none provided."
Pros: "Great experience overall"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great for this flight"
Cons: "The check-in staff were rude and didn't seem to care about clients. Two different people were rude to me when i checked my baggage upon leaving and returning. I'm not impressed with United."
Cons: "Air attendant is disruptive and throwing her own opinions at people without listening and disrespectfulness. But it was a good chance for me to debating in English."
Pros: "The crew was nice. Coffee was great."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Doesn't look like it's been thoroughly cleaned in ages. My seat was broken. Had to sit upright the entire trip. Bathroom door wouldn't stay closed."
Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."
Cons: "Felt very crowded - narrow seats."
Pros: "OK until we boarded."
Cons: "My flight out of Chicago was cancelled. I hate when they lie to you that it was weather related. At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."
Cons: "Delayed twice. And even after landing had to wait almost 2 hours for taxing. Felt out of breath by the end."
Cons: "No mechanics available and had to send for some, taking 5 hours. Didn't get to destination until late at night and missed my event."
Pros: "Several channels for entertainment."
Cons: "Rough landing. Plane bumped up and down when touching down and swayed."
Pros: "Hard working efficient crew. On time; a pleasant flight. Excellent flight attendant who covered all requests on her own."
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "Nothing is provided: you have to pay for everything, food and movies, paying a return ticket at 1000$ between Indy and Hawaii, I was expecting much more!!"
Cons: "Good very poor Crew no interest to service, asked for landing immigration card, crew just answer haven't you got it? Then walk away"
Cons: "Food was terrible, entertainment was non-existent and crew is sub par compared to other airlines. The flight was United, so no one should be surprised at the poor rating. I though I booked a flight with Lufthansa, but tunrs out this was partnered with United. Terrible experience. Don't think I would fly United again even if you paid me."
Pros: "Everything went perfectly. Thank you."
Cons: "At this point, I needed a drink and placed an order with the stewardess. She never brought the drink. What is up with you guys?!?"
Pros: "Seat space OK for economy class experienced crew"
Cons: "Transit time less than 1 hour. last on plane for seating (wheelchair customer) Not enough bathrooms in econ class"
Pros: "the crew was very nice."
Cons: "The food was terrible. The seats are so small you cannot access your carry on under the seats."
Pros: "I liked that I was given spacious accommodations for myself and my service animal."
Cons: "I didn't like that we then sat on the plane for 2 hours, then had to get back off. I don't really blame United Airlines for this because there was a storm. But if Kayak wants me to rate the flight I'd have to say it was bad because it didn't even occur."
Pros: "Here's the situation- There are massive storms across the state, massive delays across the nation, and a tiny airport packed full of people. All the things needed to make a horrible flying day an even worse day for customer service. BUT the flight crew and terminal teams did an amazing job keeping things together and keeping guests happy. They communicated all the information they knew in a timely manner, and made sure to correct any connections that needed to be processed before the plan landed. Also they kept their calm as people flipped out."
Cons: "I didn't lol the size of the white planes airport. That plan could hold about 150 people at best.... There was at least 600"
Cons: "The plane was so damn HOT inside. Then we sat on the tarmac for 40mins, while being cramped inside with no word from the flight crew, on why we were not taking off. Worst and most uncomfortable flight in years for me and the rest of us suffering passengers on board.... Horrible Horrible Flight"
Cons: "cold I the cabin - leaky vent by my legs in 3D"
Pros: "The fact that it was actually on time and flight went according to plan."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable with very little room."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "We were deplaned due to mechanical issue. Had to take a didferent flight which put me in portland 9 hours later than planned. Only compensation received was a $10 meal voucher."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "One of the crew members was very mean towards some people I was sitting near. They were older and didn't realize that once we pushed off you had to remain in your seat and she came and told them they were breaking the law and would be arrested for standing up, in such a nasty tone they didn't say another word the whole flight. When we were offered something to drink they declined. I jumped out of my seat realized I forgot to ask where the bags were placed that were collected on the jet bridge and went back to ask if they were in baggage claim or not and she yelled at me for turning around and told me she could not speak me because I had exited the plane already."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "A miserable 13 hour flight. The wifi did not work the entire trip and the movies shown on the large screens kept "skipping" as well. There were no screens on the seat backs to watch movies. (And since wi fi wasn't working I couldn't watch movies on iPad either.). The food was overcooked and inedible."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight customer service had attitude"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Patronizing flight attendant"
Pros: "Good on time boarding."
Cons: "The food is just disgusting and not even respectful of its faithful passengers. United should really check on what it offers to his customers."
Pros: "Can you imagine there's no movies or games during this 12-hour international flight? It's very hard and made the trip much more longer and so tired. I suggest the airline to do something to make the customers happy, such as to issue a free air ticket or a big coupon for my next trip."
