Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Free novies"
Cons: "Food service and better social distancing"
Pros: "Knowing that the pilot takes out safety seriously is to be commended. Thank you"
Cons: "Not have a breakdown would be nice but I know that breakdowns are unexpected and it’s better to be safe than sorry with our safety. So thank you"
Cons: "Seat 33A. The audio output was bad. Could not clearly hear dialog. Restarting did not help, this issue as consistent got all media programs."
Cons: "We changed terminals and the communication was minimal. The original plane had mx issues, so the boarding/takeoff time kept slipping."
Pros: "The flying crew was excellent, boarding was amazing.."
Cons: "It is a international fry? if a fly takes more than 2 hours it need some entertainment and may work with a bigger aircraft.. and some small byte .."
Pros: "I love the video before take off on AA flights. I also, enjoyed the crew and frequently being offered beverages!"
Cons: "AA is either on time or very delayed. This flight was on time but I fly AA often and that’s not always the case."
Cons: "We waited in the shuttle bus for one hour while they determined the plane needed maintenance and found another plane to warm up"
Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."
Pros: "They quickly rebooked us after cancelling our original flights"
Cons: "The British Airways experience was awful. American should be ashamed for selling that business class seat. The seats were confusing, uncomfortable, and tiny. I feel like I paid a full price rate for a stripped down and discounted product. Not flying BA ever again if I have a choice."
Cons: "Person in front of me had seat reclined from take off to landing. Nobody checked. Nobody told him it had to be upright during takeoff and landing. I believe that is a safety issue. Isn’t that why the flight attendants are there?"
Cons: "Never made it"
Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Crew needs to improve their attitude"
Cons: "Limited legroom is a problem. Otherwise, the flight was fine."
Cons: "No in-seat entertainment"
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful, which is what you want from a flight. Once the connection was made the next day, the flight segment went perfectly."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hours late leaving Lima, so many people missed connections in Miami, NOBODY from LATAM was at the gate to assist with how to make new connections or how to get local accommodations for the night. This was a customer service fail. American is no better. They rescheduled the flight at no cost, but then sent you back to LATAM for help with the overnight. If we buy tickets from your website and you own the process, you should be more helpful when there are problems. The back-and-forth was frustrating. Lima airport takes a long time to go through all the checkpoints. Two hours does not give enough time. There are at least four long lines that have to be endured. This process could use some streamlining."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."
Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."
Pros: "Comfortable wifi enabled jet."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2hrs. Inbound aircraft mechanical trouble. No info provided by airline. Maddening 10 minute rolling delay. "Your flight is boarding in xx(10) minutes and no airplane is at gate. It's just ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"
Cons: "Delay out of Wichita and another delay out of Dallas, got into Tokyo 3 hours late. Paid $167 for upgrade to economy plus but seat assignment was in economy"
Pros: "It was 1 in the morning in the Philadelphia airport and I had an 8 hour layover and there were no vending machines available and an airport worker went and got me a drink and some chips and would not take any payment. I call that going above and beyond his job duties. Very pleasant man."
Cons: "They layover was a little much and to get one with a better time was $300.00 and all I wanted to do was get to Watertown NY to see my grandkids."
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Time of flight and on time flight"
Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"
Cons: "80 minute delay"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing was good about this flight."
Cons: "An 8 hour delay to get from DFW to DC, after an 18 hour flight from Sydney. No one knew where the plane was and the delay changed from 3 hours, to 5 hours to finally 8 hours. The former, refitted United Airlines plane, with no frills, no electric outlets, uncomfortable seats, and the joke that is the "recline" position."
Pros: "Flight was not completely full so I got an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "We were delayed due to some balance issues."
Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."
Cons: "Didn't make the flight because the flight to London was cancelled."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Very small airplane for a 3 hours flight."
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary"
Cons: "No charges for cellphones on first class! (Plane looks pretty new as well)"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "Check in was total chaos. Food was horrible."
Pros: "This flight was enjoyable because everyone could choose their own entertainment. No one offered headphones, so I was glad that I had my own."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "1 hour delay turned into a 3 hour delay. We waited at the airport for more than 4 hours and could've used that time to explore Chicago instead of rushing to the airport only to board, de-plane, and then board again. No vegetarian options were given for food."
Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."
Pros: "Everything was fine---smooth flight, no problems until after landing."
Cons: "We waited 45 minutes on the tarmac for a gate before we could deplane."
Pros: "Friendly customer service, good snacks."
Cons: "No negative actions or interactions."
Pros: "The accommodations. Loved the high tech tv and choices on the entertainment, as well as the more advanced reading lights. LOVED LOVED LOVED the charging ports available."
Cons: "The headrests/seats weren't very comfortable."
Pros: "our flight were on time. Staff was very helpful, I walk with aid of a cane."
Cons: "Last row. They forgot to assign us seats and we almost didn't get one. We had to because we had a dog. They put the dog under the wrong reservation and were concerned they charged someone else for it. No concern for fact they forgot to get us seats. We were in last row center seats. Horrible. Then we were starving and willing to purchase food. By the time they got to us, they were out of food. What?!?! We were willing to pay! Rude personnel. Horrible all around. Hate America. United is better."
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Plane arrived early."
Cons: "Seat reassignment"
Cons: "Obama ground stop in Philadelphia. No one knew in advance? seating very cramped. Entry to aircraft looked dangerous. It would be easy to fall to the tarmac. Very kow railing."
Pros: "A great ride."
Pros: "The crew was responsive and very friendly."
Pros: "Nice & quick! Made me feel safe even though it was icy!"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Boarding, no surprises, flight: comfortable take off, flight, landing, coffee, on-time, carry-on baggage"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all (had it connected but it was too slow)"
Pros: "the arrival on the other end"
Cons: "on tarmac 1-1/2 hours conflicting info....went from delay due to traffic/weather, to extended flight time due to reroute, to asking 10 people to volunteer to get off or 10 would be chosen to have to get off, 4 people volunteered, was holding my breath to be “picked off” when the 4 people were let back on and we took off an hour late. the flight steward spoke so unreasonably fast you couldn’t understand a word she said and she had an overall bad attitude....very disappointing from United"
Pros: "Aircrew great along with gate agents."
Cons: "First class flying is gone. No lounge access in the US. No meal (boarding at 1720 and arriving 2100) Beverage service the same in front as in back. Need to go back to Asia to get what you pay for."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Poor service in first class. Made me feel like I was bothering her"
Cons: "Ended up at Logan."
Cons: "Rebooking through united was a nightmare"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and worked well together."
Cons: "Small delay before takeoff."
Pros: "Good crew all around"
Cons: "United at LAX is poor customer care. It's newly(and continuing) remodeled design is not well thought out and executed. No accents, color, features or even minimal amenities 2 billion dollar profit and none spent on customer care or comfort"
Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Pros: "Landed safely. The stewardess was very nice and engaging."
Cons: "My plane took off late from Wichita, and missed departure to LA in Denver by five minutes. Despite their being several of us, they didn't hold the plane. It's 7:39 before I'm guaranteed a make up flight because I'm told by customer service that united flies fewer flights during holidays periods despite being the busiest season of the year. United did nothing to make up for the night with family they have taken from me on vacation."
Pros: "Staff were very polite and courteous. Friendly and kind. The flight was on time and smooth. I really enjoyed my time and the stewardesses were awesome."
Cons: "I really don't have any response to this question. I didn't have any food or entertainment due to my choice so I really appreciate the crews overall performance."
Pros: "The last minute emergency flight was not terribly priced"
Cons: "I was notified when there was going to be a delay, but not notified when my flight was cancelled due to the airline not having a crew. Really? No crew? Gave my mother a voucher for a motel stay, but failed to notify her that there would be no shuttle that comes to the airport after 10pm. She is not great with technology and was stranded at the airport until her re-scheduled flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "Kayak did not notify us of a flight cancellation and we were delayed by one day and out over 450$."
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Connection flight times were a little close which caused me to rush from different sections of New ark airport. I almost missed my flight home to Providence so if connecting flights could be scheduled with a little more wiggle room that would be great."
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Pros: "Easy to board an deplane, as the plane is about the size of my bath tub."
Cons: "Can't believe United is still flying these propeller soda cans in 2017. This plane was absolutely disgusting...smelled like urine throughout, was dirty and grimy, had worn out seats. Basically like borrowing your college roommates 20 year old Buick that he got for free from his grandma. Customer service from the flight attendant was on par with the plane quality. Was snapping at customers and annoyed that everyone didn't understand how he wanted to balance the load in the plane with moving people's seats around. I get why that is super important, but that doesn't mean you can be a jerk about it to *customers* who haven't experienced the pleasure of flying in a pinewood derby car in the sky before."
Cons: "Again flights never left on time."
Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew was awesome!!!! You did a great job"
Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two hours"
Pros: "Everyone was great helped me make my flight on time and great service."
Cons: "Flight attendant, LaToya, was the rudest I've ever encountered on United. Didn't greet anyone, basically slammed drinks down on the tray tables, didn't say goodbye to us when departing, and was overall very unpleasant. Could tell she didn't want to be there."
Pros: "The flight was to depart at 8:15 but due to delay only leaving at 3;30. Dissapointed as it took two agents to process a replacement flight (first agent offered a connection for a 1.5h flight only)."
Cons: "More attentive staff willing to help and at the very least, be emphatic."
Cons: "The crew was unprofessional and Unprepared"
Pros: "Same as before"
Pros: "Everything smooth and on time."
Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."
Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"
Pros: "We received a free video service for the flight"
Cons: "First of all the flight was booked for a plane which was too large to land in Providence. So either way we were going to have a longer day and extra leg.....which I only paid for ONE plane change. After running to the gate because my first flight was late taking off, this flight was delayed due to engine issues. The agent had us standing in line for 1 1/2 hours while she tried to figure out what was going on. So instead of taking off at 5:40 pm, we took off at 9 pm and still had to catch a bus from Boston to Providence...HORRIBLE Flight = Long Day/Night"
Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "The crew kept us up to date on the ATC delay."
Cons: "Weather in the DEN area and Eastern Colorado generated a ground stop in DEN delaying our departure from ICT for about 2 hours. Even with the overall delay in DEN my SMF flight was long gone putting me on a late flight into SMF. This of course lead to a short night's rest...just another day of travel on the airlines."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
Pros: "It's always worth the extra money to fly United! I love this airline."
Cons: "Too warm in flight. Did not run Ac enough."
Cons: "The gate changed twice. We were directed to a bus to take us to our flight to only be made to get back off the bus because we didn't have a crew. No one would tell us anything. Got back into the airport and then 30 minutes later got put back on the bus. The plane was disgusting, smelled like urine. The air conditioning didn't work. Terrible."
Pros: "The plane was clean. Boarding was great at Wichita."
Cons: "All flights should have free wifi and power hookups. Greyhound does this, why shouldn't united."
Cons: "Arrived SIX hours late, did have luggage which was nice."
Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"
Pros: "Was a very good service; thanks to all"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. I was traveling with a baby and there was no gate agent anywhere to be found to help us get re-routed after the delay caused us to miss our connection. Terrible experience with United."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, everything went smoothly and efficiently. On a personal level I felt a lot more comfortable on these smaller planes, just because there were less people I suppose."
Pros: "Very short flight which is nice again boarded from outside. Very small plane so boarding was super quick. Arrived early."
Cons: "Seats need more cushion for back support. No food just drink. Internent was the worse."
