Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very easy flight, no delays."
Cons: "Very little overheard room so valet bags if possible."
Pros: "Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew was very grumpy and not accommodating to families (ours and others). No wifi or outlets."
Pros: "Movie selection was excellent. Bombardier jet was a notch above what I expected."
Cons: "We were over an hour delayed on the first flight. The seats were super uncomfortable for the overnight flight. They left open seats in the upgrade section on the second flight - why would you ever do that?!?"
Pros: "Plenty of food and snacks, but the food was just ok."
Cons: "Took about 45 minutes after the doors were closed to finally take off. Busy runway I guess."
Cons: "Gate checked baggage took forever to be brought to the jetway. I’ve been on several UA flights. It seems to be a major problem with UA and their contractors. They don’t load bags quickly."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Staff accomodating wheelchairs people is not really pleasant manner."
Pros: "Everything was as pkanned"
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice, understanding and accommodating. I hope To fly with them again."
Cons: "Although not United’s fault, The flight was very uncomfortable as several of the passengers were rude and out if line, one almost accusing me of stealing her husband’s seat all because I was traveling with my ESA companion. I travel with her for a reason and that situation did not help but the flight attendants did everything possible to fix the situation."
Pros: "The people seated to the left and right of me."
Cons: "United 'nickel and dimes' you for everything. Baggage, but the worst is the space between rows. Just horribly uncomfortable. Money hungry corporate greed. $7.99 for the equivalent of an Egg McMuffin. You think the big airlines would learn from Southwest airlines. I'll avoid United as much as I can in the future."
Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding okay speed."
Cons: "The plane was in poor repair. Seats were frayed, overhead panels were bent or broken on the ceiling, floor dirty, air not working... Old planes can still be old AND well kept. I was told I could have a carry-on, but at the gate, I was told that all bags would need to be checked. My "carry-on," which met criteria, came back bent AF with items missing."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "The crew were always really helpful and kind. They were happy to speak English or Japanese."
Cons: "Despite stitching when I could and as soon as I could. Lower back buttocks hurt pretty bad half way through the flight. This is a knock on the airline industry and not so much ANA. Comfort levels start diminish when you try to squeeze as many seats as you can into airplane. Especially, for people like me who are at least 6' tall. Also, the food was very meh. This was surprising because all my other experiences with ANA were quite the opposite."
Pros: "The crew service in the airplane, it was clean and the were very nice."
Cons: "The service in the gate, I tried to explained her that when the plane land in Washington My connection will be already boarding and she didn't do anything to help. I asked her to check my bags complimentary so I could be able to run and she said no."
Cons: "No refund, no compensation, no apology....just too bad."
Pros: "Quick, easy flight with a really nice flight attendant."
Cons: "Really small and uncomfortable plane. I feel like they should phase these small planes out. Seats are not wide enough for a regular sized guy."
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane because there was some problem with the baggage that was holding up all the planes. Not the airline’s fault, rather the airport."
Pros: "Our flight home was Great. At kona airport the flight crew was Amazing, the captain even let my daughter set in the driver seat, which is something she will never forget."
Cons: "Downside there was no onboard t.v.s which makes 4 hours seem long."
Pros: "The flight attendant used my name. Great landing."
Cons: "Tar mat loading. In flight service."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were the best!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we didn't find out until we all boarded and then we all had to get off and re board about 15 minutes later. Some missed connecting flights. Seems like they need to work on communication."
Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Pros: "I enjoy flying, despite the security checks, secondary security checks, the general lax nature of TSA agents who care not when your flight is leaving or how inconvenient it is to have to unpack your entire bag to show them a bar of soap is not, in fact, a plastic explosive. I do like to fly, but it seems to be increasingly difficult to adhere to the rules properly."
Cons: "I was in line to board with group 4 and the woman in front of me had a large duffle bag, a purse, and 3 small grocery bags. The gate agent let her through, but told her to consolidate her bags. I had one carry on and one purse and was forced to gate check my bag, only to find out I would have to go to baggage claim to pick it up. If the woman in front of me was forced to adhere to the rules, I would likely have fit my bag into an overhead. UNFAIR."
Pros: "The first leg of my journey was on time, a little early, even."
Cons: "The second leg was delayed, and the flight crew seemed confused about why. The chairs on the planes were quite uncomfortable, and gave all three of my party some kind of bodily pain."
Cons: "I'm 6"1 and there's no leg room for at all!"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and responsive"
Cons: "Nickel and dimed for every aspect of the flight. Very uncomfortable seating. Definitely not comfortable for anyone over 4'5" and over 100lbs."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hrs without reason."
Pros: "Rude boarding employee- Rude in general on phone with United Got to my confirmation code after having to change my flight and we got disconnected- didn't call me back when he had my number. Lost the connection"
Pros: "This is the way it is supposed to work. Great staff, great flight. Was delayed, but handled very well."
Pros: "Jet was small, so a little less comfortable. Friendly staff. I got a refill on my beverage before they collected trash."
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Pros: "Crew attempted to make a "backup" booking due to the delay in my connection to Newark. I had a 12:45 flight that was delayed. We departed at 1:45. I was booked on the 4:51 connection to Detroit and 8:58 as a backup."
Cons: "Due to the change in my reservation, my luggage was not loaded on my flight. I am still waiting for my belongings."
Cons: "It doesn't make sense to book two tickets together and end up sitting in two middle seats in different rows."
Cons: "United cancelled our first flight, and would not re-book us on another flight until 24 hours later, so we ended up having to drive from Washington DC to Savannah for an event. Instead of cancelling just the first leg of our flight, they cancelled the return trip as well, and then tried to charge us the difference because we were "booking at the last minute". United really is the worst airline, and we will never fly with them again."
Pros: "My flight has a delay and i miss my connection to my second flight. I need to book an hotel room and that was not in my budget."
Cons: "I was so cramped into the seat. I have never experienced such restrictive seating before."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight and had to pay to stay in a hotel room for the night."
Pros: "The crew were very accommodating and polite. They made the trip very pleasant."
Cons: "There were flies on the plane on our return trip."
Cons: "The flight was extremely late and completely upset my travel schedule. It cost me extra money to get to my final destination on-time. The worst travel experience I have had. The airlines did not communicate AT ALL regarding the delays that they knew about."
Pros: "We had no delays this time and had a smooth flight."
Cons: "While we arrived on time, we all waited 40 minutes to get our checked luggage at the end of the flight. United is not my first choice in airlines: they give the impression that they're giving the bare minimum and not really trying to make a good experience for the customer."
Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."
Pros: "Plain pilot profecional"
Cons: "Plain to old"
Pros: "Crew was so friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I couldn't watch the movie on your website. It kept buffering. I also had a very limited choice on movies since I didn't have the app. I was very uncomfortable in my seat."
Cons: "First the flight was delayed more than 1.5 hrs and then I get a text that my suitcase was coming in the next flight which there was none, to then find out that my suitcase was there after my ride was returning to then come back to pick me up. Very unorganized."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight attendant was very rude when I asked for some help lifting my bag into the overhead compartment."
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems. Left and arrived on time."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
