Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable and not enough space. Not ideal for a long flight"
Cons: "Strange reason for delays"
Cons: "Not sitting for an hour on the runway with no A/C."
Cons: "Service for people not able to sleep on the long haul"
Pros: "The staff was accommodating and worked hard to make us more comfortable and be helpful when possible- there was a lot of turbulence so dinner was served late and there was a lot of time we couldn't move about but they made the best of it."
Cons: "The added benefits of the Air New Zealand long flight planes of the entertainment like mini games and the footrest into bed as well as my husband and I not being seated in between two people but being on one side or the other."
Pros: "Flight was fine. Just like any other."
Cons: "Nothing stands out as being good or bad. But I think all airlines are super cramped these days."
Cons: "Food ran out and only one choice"
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "The foot room could be better for lying on you side."
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: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Cons: "I was not allowed on the flight despite spending two weeks planning and calling and organizing to get my emotional support animal onto the plane. After booking everything on the advice of airlines and agents they all gave me blatantly incorrect information and after admitting they were in the wrong would still do nothing because apparently nobody is responsible when I booked through an online agent (also done on the advice of lufthansa). I will be making sure someone provide compensation and takes responsibility for the monetary, emotional and time consuming disaster that has transpired. Thank you for nothing."
Pros: "Kayak provided excellent info during the trip about flights timings ! Marvelous !!!!"
Cons: "they changed our flight without notifying us! they messed up our seats and asked my mother to deplane! when we were flying with twin babies! they also gave us grief about gate checking something on the trip home that we had no problems with on the way there. honestly i will never fly united again."
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating. Terrible food"
Cons: "Lufthansa canceled the flights and blamed united airlines. The united airlines would not help and finally ended up having to stay in Frankfurt and now have to leave for Lisbon tomorrow and then onwards."
Pros: "No one was in my row, so I had the opportunity to lay down and stretch out!"
Cons: "The crew didn’t seem to inviting. There was one woman who was very kind... but other than that, they all seemed like they hated thief jobs... the food was very bland."
Pros: "Entertainment was actually good"
Cons: "Not very good food but I guess they gave ice cream so maybe that made up for it? Not super comfortable seats/room."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "The movie choices were the only saving grace."
Cons: "They split up my family and were not accommodating in helping to find seats near each other. Flight attendants were rude. Requested a veggie meal and got chicken. Seats didn't recline."
Cons: "The seat cushion of 21A seems tilted forward. Please fix it."
Pros: "Air Canada seats were much more comfortable than the United flight seats."
Cons: "I had to leave the terminal and pass through security again. United did not let me reserve my seat on Air Canada. They did not even tell me where my connecting flight could be found."
Pros: "No complaints here! The Air New Zealand staff were amazing. They did their jobs really well! They made everyone comfortable during the trip."
Cons: "Leg room and seats are way too tight and uncomfortable and I am on the thinner side. Can imagine how hard for larger people. Really cringe at having to pay for check in luggage as very used to Southwest's 2 free."
Pros: "Delay, delays delayed !!!"
Cons: "Definitely delayed"
Cons: "Super delayed. 4 hours plus for a less than 2 hour flight. Unacceptable. Arrival at 3:15 am vs 11 pm."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant & helping. There was a gentlemen I sat beside with a service dog the size of a horse! He (diesel) was a gentle giant. The crew were dog lovers so they took care of diesel like he was a rock star!"
Cons: "No entertainment...you had to watch it on your phone or tablet."
Cons: "It was delayed a few minutes"
Pros: "Always loved United, always will! The bad rap going around about them unfortunate but people won't understand the airline industry if they don't try."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful especially with looking up connecting flights due to most people missing their connection."
Cons: "The delay, but what can you do. The seats are not comfortable when you're short."
Cons: "Need more leg room and more movie options. Also crew needs to be a little nicer lol"
Pros: "I cancelled that flight... Hope my refund is coming soon"
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "Anything but water was for extra. We weren't even offered a small snack for the price of the flight. My flight was changed three times and it was very cramped. They said there would be entertainment, but it cost as much as a movie ticket. They also managed to lose my bags for the third time in a row."
Cons: "Polaris Biz servie was worse than old biz class service. Only six salmon dinners aboard! Cabin crew needed to asked for many standard items. After dinner service, they were invisible. Brkfst was rushed in last hour before touch down. This was a real disappointment after an excellent flight from LAX to MEL! We can fly AA for such service at a lower price!"
Pros: "It was a small plane and it made up for some lost time in the delayed departure. The one air stewardess was also nice."
Cons: "Waiting for hand luggage on arrival slowed me down to catch my connecting flight. The flight was delayed to start with."
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It wasn't on time to board"
Cons: "1hr late to board because of a missing flight attendant. They could not get replacement for an hour."
Pros: "Crew was great, food was good, and had a superb entertainment selection."
Cons: "Comfort was as issue, I was assigned more leg room at the emergency row and the wall would be pushing against me, forcing me to go towards my neighbors side. Also, I had initially picked the last row to sit on, which was stated on my itinerary but when I printed my boarding pass, I got assigned middle of plane - which I did not understand nor complain about."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants, helpful staff at the ticket counter."
Cons: "Unable to check into both legs of my flight even though Air Canada used United for the first leg."
Pros: "Crew pleasant."
Cons: "Tight space and no food to speak of."
Pros: "Arrived a bit early to the destination."
Cons: "Every time the crew came by with something (more food, duty free, custom forms) (which seemed very regularly) it was announced over the intercom so it made sleeping very difficult on the 11 hour red eye flight. Other airlines will just walk by and catch your eye if you are awake. Seats were quite small as well."
Pros: "I like the entertainment screen and the food was tasty"
Cons: "My seat...not being able to pick an aisle seat. Also the passenger behind me kept doing something with her seat pocket and I could feel that everytime. Need more padding there. And halfway through the flight the screen quit working."
Cons: "Everything. I had a very tight schedule to visit my friends in canada. What was supposed to be a quick flight turned into almost 24 hours of travel and ariving 12 hours late. I was lucky to have 3 days in with my friends now i only have 2. Not to mention what was supposed to be an inexpensive trip turned i to an expensive one when you are forced to eat airport food after being constantly re routed. I bought my ticket based on ariving to ottawa in the morning this however was not the case. I will be seeking a refund."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The Air NZ FLight from Aickland to San Francisco was operated by United Airlines. The seat had excellent leg room. The attendants were very pleasant and available throughout."
Cons: "When I first border the plane there was another passes egg in my allocated seat. The selection of movies available was only okay. their is only a minimal number of toilets for the number of passengers and one of them was out of paper when I went or use it. But they were always clean."
Pros: "everyone was quick, efficient, and customer oriented. seats were comfortable and the snacks were nice. The crew members were exhausted, i'm sure, but they kept a smile on their faces and helped all of us feel comfortable and secure."
Cons: "The flight was rescheduled due to weather, it would have been nice to have a meal voucher so people were less aggravated and hungry. My biggest issue was that the T.V. screen was very bright and gave me a migraine. If there was a way to darken, or even shut it off, that would be much more pleasant."
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "The whole nightmare of flying on United worst travel ever. never again"
