Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Business class amenities"
Cons: "Luggage drop off taking over 45 minutes (for Business Class) was not acceptable."

Pros: "Crew was nice, easy to use entertainment, smooth boarding"

Pros: "The spacious seats"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Not delayed every leg of this trip and extend the travel time from 16 hours to 30 hours!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and courteous"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the cabin was comfortable."
Cons: "No change required."
Pros: "Being on time at departure and arrival is a challenge, but despite having a completely filled cabin, they made it look easy."
Cons: "I boarded in Group 4 and all bins were full. So my carry on case had to be checked (several others’ cases as well). This caused me a 30 minute delay at baggage claim and some minor scuffs on an item that wasn’t designed for checking in. These are 2 reasons why I no longer check in. 3 is lost items."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Pros: "Nobody bugged me about plugging my laptop and cellphone into the wall for charging. I wanted to check out the spice shops in the airport but they were closed both times I was there. That would have been something I might have liked."
Cons: "Customs in Trinidad, even for transit is a pain. You go through customs, get dumped outside, have to recheck your luggage whenever the counter decides its going to open. 11 hour layover on the way down, 6 hour layover on the way up. Food options were fried chicken (KFC), fried chicken (Churches), fried chicken (the local franchise), and Subway. Since the layover was late at night and I was a woman traveling alone, I did not want to leave the airport (and still drag my luggage because the airline counter was not open yet to check in to my connecting flight)."
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: "Flights went out on time, almost"
Cons: "The number of people who bring far too many and too big luggage onto the plane as carry on. I paid for my bags to be checked and then see how many people are breaking all the rules. This delays flight departure and causes frustration and anxiety onboard"
Pros: "I always feel merely "tired" after the Denver-Tokyo flight on UA's 787 Dreamliner. On all other aircraft, I always feel "exhausted" after an intercontinental flight. The increased humidity and pressure make an incredible difference. As usual, I paid a ~$300 premium to take this flight (HKG-NRT-DEN and back) rather than cheaper HKG-SFO-DEN or HKG-SEA-DEN routings, which feature 777 or A330 aircraft."
Cons: "As long as you don't expect the level of service you would receive on an Asian carrier, United is fine. As usual, United's cabin crew are simply not generally gentle and welcoming. They get their jobs done, and I feel safe with them, but I don't look forward to interacting with them. I wish ANA would operate NRT-DEN!!!"
Pros: "Just arriving safe, otherwise Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service is very poor"
Pros: "This was good, a pleasant and comfortable experience."
Cons: "WiFi was not free"
Pros: "Staff was courteous. Flight on time. I sat 2 seats away from rear. Toilet smell was pervasive."
Cons: "Cramped seating conditions"
Cons: "I saw my bag come out of the baggage claim ripped open. My stuff coming out. My zipper was complety destroyed and my locking mechanism on my bag was ripped off even though it wasn't locked."
Cons: "The flight was full to capacity"
Pros: "Flight was timely"
Cons: "We flew to Hawaii for a friend's wedding and many of us flew different airlines. You would think that a flight that was 8 hours would include a meal?! Our friends who flew Delta and American all got meals and snacks. Another issue too is that you do get free movies although they don't tell you as your boarding that you would need their App to watch it. So if you didn't download it before take off you have to pay for their internet or their tablet."
Pros: "On time, free checked bag, speedy service and a friendly crew."
Cons: "Food could be better, does not compare with previous level of service."
Pros: "Have flown 6 different airlines this year and United was the least enjoyable so far."
Cons: "Seat space on other economy flights was better. Cabin staff very unengaged. Entertainment seemed to be all pay as you go."
Pros: "The food could be better, for and international flight."
Pros: "Although I was allowed a personal item and a carryon. The agent at the plane doors ( Guyanese guy. Insisted I check my carryon, for the reason the flight is full name note I was the second to last person to boaRd the plane. I explained to him I had a shoetc connection to MIA and then to Frankfurter so I did not take any other luggage so I would not haveto wait. He insisted I will get my luggage as soon as I exit the plane in Houston, which I asked him 3 times . The plane was not full there were more than 10 empty seats and lots of luggage space.I got to Houstonew to be told I would have to go the the luggage belt to pick up my bag, which did not appear for half an hour after we landed. I was truly disgusted"
Pros: "Got in my seat and took off right on time. Courteous welcoming staff as we boarded and deplaned."
Cons: "The servers serving drinks and snacks, never smiled never said your welcome...maybe having a bad day? Sucks we have to pay to watch anything on tv. We pay enough at least let's us have two hours of entertainment."
Pros: "Two bags free"
Cons: "Ground staff rude"
Pros: "Status quo"
Cons: "Flight was late arriving to gate hence late leaving, had a connecting flight."
Cons: "It was an hour late."
Pros: "The updates I received on my phone for delays and change of gates was faster than the agents would/could announce."
Cons: "When workers were walking the aisle, it was hard to get their attention."
Pros: "When the flight took off I was asleep and when I woke up I was at my destination."
Pros: "Direct flight to Houston"
Cons: "Staff boarding did not care travelled with my diabetic mom going home to Houston they could not be bothered to seat us together response was " ash your fellow passengers to swap with you" how aweful"
Pros: "Courteous crew and smooth flight for the most part"
Cons: "The seats in were the most cramped I've ever experienced even for economy"
Pros: "Professional way staff worked with public"
Cons: "In boarding, I was told the flight was overbooked and because I did not choose a seat prior to checking in that I would be placed on stand by after purchasing my tickets weeks before. I was highly upset and that was unfair. Long story short, at boarding they were able to give me a seat. I should have never went through that stress if I had a confirmed purchased ticket from the beginning."
Pros: "No much at all."
Cons: "We were stuck 30 minutes before takeoff, and an hour and ten minutes after landing. The takeoff was extremely wobbly."
Pros: "The simplicity."
Pros: "Smooth and efficient boarding process resulting in the flight actually leaving before time.Flight attendants were very friendly and polite."
Cons: "I was taken by surprise when I was required to pay for one checkin luggage. I am normally allowed one free and felt that I should have been notified beforehand."
Pros: "Short. Easy."
Cons: "Flight a little late. Waited outside at SFO before anyone could board plane 15minutes it was cold."
Pros: "The demeanor of the crew was warm and welcoming throughout the trip."
Cons: "The bathrooms were not very clean and hour into the trip"
Pros: "Everything really was superb. Food rated low because of a measly biscuit on a 6 hour flight. Entertainment rated low because I even had to pay to gain access to the flight tracker. And, as far as airlines go, comfort should've been 5 stars, but I really could have used a back pillow. Or even a back pillow option (had I asked an attendant - all of whom were awesome). PS. Kayak's regular emails kept me unusually updated on flight progress and their communication was the main factor in my decision to complete this survey."
Pros: "Absolutely noting."
Cons: "I purchased a return ticket from Port of Spain, Trinidad to Newark, NJ with United. I also purchased the insurance on this flight because it's good sense to be prepared. Unfortunately, I couldn't make the flight because of medical reasons and had to cancel. When I called United to purchase a new ticket, they were charging me a $200 rebooking fee plus a $30 processing fee. That's almost the price of the ticket! This is an absolutely horrible policy and very unfair. I had to rebook a new ticket with JetBlue which is 100% better, reasonable and understanding than United. Not to mention I lost the credit with united because with the rebooking and processing fee, it's almost the same price as the ticket. Because of this atrocious experience, United will never get my business again."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to the weather. I had to stay at the hotel with my parents and then fly next day. I had 11 bags and was told that United can't hold bags in airport so I had to take them to the airport. I paid twice for my luggage . I paid about $700 as a sequence for the flight delay."
Pros: "Plenty of time between flights"
Cons: "Boarding gate changed 3-4 times in 2 hrs!!"
Cons: "The service by the crew was awful! Airlines forget that customers pay for transportation. Sometimes hundreds to thousands of dollars. Will never use them again"
Pros: "Everything was easy."
Cons: "The plane was hot"
Cons: "The flight had continual ongoing delays and it was recognized I would not make my connection. United was more than accommodating to the customers in front of me, however when it came to assisting me they were not. I would not get to my final destination until 7 hours after the original time. I will never fly United airlines again."
