Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "Everything was very nice."
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."
Pros: "Easy boarding and finding seat; good food and liked that wine was available, good movies to choose from"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable, I am 5'1" and the head rest was too high, fortunately I had my own foam neck support. Bathrooms could use more cleaning during flight as one was grossly covered with urine right after turbulence was experienced. One crew member appeared to be having a bad day and seemed unhappy to be at work and was impatient with all."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. What else could you ask for? The flight was only 30 minutes long."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was uneventful and short. The crew as nice."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"
Pros: "The captain and first officer were top notch! They were very polite and kind. The plane seemed clean."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was passive aggressive to anyone she didn’t agree with. She wasn’t out right rude but nonetheless, she doesn’t need to act like that."
Cons: "only pretzel, no nuts as option"
Pros: "First class seating is comfortable."
Cons: "Seat 1A lack of leg room."
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Pros: "It was a short flight, less than an hour, but the crew was great."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Friendly crew, decent food, good entertainment options to make the flight feel shorter."
Pros: "It was a bit less expensive at first, but the charges added up quickly. My only complaint really is that the booking was through Air Canada and the flight was operated through United Airlines. It wasn’t a problem for me but if you only have a Visa debit card and want to pay for checked bags online, this is not possible to do online prior to checking in. You also can’t check in to your flight as you would normally, you get the last available seats and have to pay for any seat changes. All in all, I’d still book through Kayak but I’d make sure that the flight I booked was through the company that operates the flights. It’s will give you more options when checking in to the flight."
Cons: "I was put through a third party airline that had no control of the final booking procedure that I was used to. I could not choose seats or add checked luggage on my visa debit, I needed a credit card. This wasn’t a problem but it could pose problems for some people."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"
Pros: "Chill easy flight no issues"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was cool"
Pros: "Three seats to myself, not crowded."
Pros: "No one died."
Cons: "The boarding was he'll at best."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""
Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."
Pros: "I had the distinct pleasure of flying in an aisle seat in the back of the plane with an empty middle seat. I quickly and effectively commandeered the middle screen (for flight information) and underseat storage to provide extra leg room in front of me. The flight attendants on my side of the plane were all friendly and wonderful."
Cons: "The entertainment lacked a little... entertainment. There was a simingly limited selection of films and those available were mostly, to be frank, terrible. The food, not terrible, was simply par for an airline. There was also a rather heated discussion between a flight attendant and a passenger on the opposite side of the plane from me."
Pros: "Charging availability for my devices on board."
Cons: "No wifi available!"
Pros: "Good staff."
Cons: "Couldn't change flight and it was delayed."
Pros: "We got my wife on a plane home in under four hours."
Cons: "United decided to bump some of their glorified bus drivers ahead of me on standby so I had to wait a full four hours in O'Hare listening to some doichebag from LA try to entertain folks at the Goose Island bar with his stories about selling franchises."
Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."
Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Pros: "Uneventful. Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Airplane seats, they're never very comfortable. Unfair to have to pay more for exit row. Headrests and seats are just not pleasant."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."
Pros: "Enjoyed the free movies"
Pros: "I need some substance $400 for a flight And you offered me No water or snack"
Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Had to wait 40 minutes for a gate"
Pros: "Sucked. .the boarding process was a cluster.tiny bag of salted ceap..huge snoring man sweating on me in seat"
Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "On time arrived early"
Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."
Cons: "This flight didn't happen."
Cons: "Very small plane. I have to valet my carry on which meant removing all my medicine (I am a cancer patient) and my camera and carry them on board with me."
Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."
