Cons: "Availability of on-board meals, I wasn’t able to purchase anything. Nothing available from the lunch menu even at the exact lunch time, in a +5h flight. Truly disappointed"

Pros: "Quick boarding, no delays."
Cons: "The control for the entertainment system is strangely located on the armrest, so the person next to me was constantly changing my system's volume and channels by simply using the armrest."

Cons: "This was a red-eye from Costa Rica to Chicago. I sat in the very back row, so I really felt the turbulence back there. But I had no chance of sleeping through it because my seat would not lean back; in fact it was so far upright that I was almost leaning forward. I can normally sleep on any flight but this was like sitting in a tiny cage designed to prevent me from finding any remotely comfortable position or getting any rest at all. They should not be allowed to sell a seat like this."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Where should I begin? Incoming flight was late, so UA 1560 was delayed. After boarding, IFE was not working. Crew could not get it to work. Snack options were NON-existent for a 5-hour flight. Upon arriving at Newark, the gate was not available. Come on United this is your hub. Final straw, the baggage took about 50 to 60 minutes to arrive."

Pros: ":)"
Cons: ":("

Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."

Pros: "Crew can be nicer"
Cons: "Food and crew"

Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"

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."

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 went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"

Cons: "Nothing, The flight left with 45 minutes of delay, for a trip of 6 h they only gave a juice and a biscuit."

Pros: "I didn't die."
Cons: "Bedlam at gate. Three overwhelmed employees trying to kick people off the plane. So many seats on this plane that there's no legroom, but also it makes the plane so heavy that it can't take off safely unless conditions are ideal. THIS IS A REAL THING THAT REALLY HAPPENED. We left 2.5 hours late due to "weather" (not because there are too many goddamn seats on the plane.) Then, before landing, we were asked to stay in our seats so people who are late for connections can get off first. Seems reasonable. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A GATE FOR US WHEN WE LANDED! The captain said 20 minutes til we can get a gate, but he'll try to get it sooner. He apparently didn't succeed, because it was 45 minutes (!!) before we got to the gate! As a result, 3 hours 15 minutes late. Officially this is "due to weather." Sure."

Pros: "Staff was VERY KIND and helpfull"
Cons: "They only had ONE warm food choice (mozzarella turkey sandwich) and none Gluten Free option. When traveling in a 5hour flight at 7am you expect to at least be able to pay for a decent breakfast..... wasn’t my chance or my 3kids. Very dissapointed"

Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional, efficient, and kind. The plane was in good condition and my seats were comfortable enough."
Cons: "The only food or entertainment offered besides a cookie or advertisement for the airline magazine had to be purchased despite the fact that it was an international plan more than 4 hours long."

Pros: "It got me to Houston, but that’s about it"
Cons: "First we boarded and the plane was cools and i am traveling with my mom who is 76 and a little frail, we ask for a blanket and the response was there no blankets in economy, with a condescending tone. Unnecessary and mean"

Cons: "The website doesn’t specify that the last row has no recline!"

Cons: "Checked baggage fees!!"

Pros: "United nunca da comida que merezca la pena y por suerte esta vez no sobre vendieron el vuelo."
Cons: "La comida, es escasa y ridícula"

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: "The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I already knew I was going to pay $200 to ship my boards back home (I wonder if golf clubs which are roughly the same size cost as much,) but when pre-purchasing through the app for an "oversized" bag you have to put a "one" in the checked bag and a "one" in the oversized bag even though they're the same bag, but then they charge you for two, and when you tell the check-in person that you only have one bag of course they can't issue a refund. No, they tell you that you get to call customer service when you return home."

Pros: "At least I made it back home in one day. The airline honored our business ageeement."
Cons: "I waited for a wheele chair that was requested from day one, but the wheeled chair never arrived. I had to venture out on foot despite my resent back surgery. It took me tree times more the time that usually takes me to make it to my destination. I only thank God for protecting me through this day."

Pros: "I enjoyed the crew and the service... Top notch"
Cons: "No tv on plain no free wifi like it was advertised"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time Direct flight!"
Cons: "Food terrible! No options. $10 sandwich only choice."

Pros: "It was a great flight over all but it was very cold inside the plane"
Cons: "Immigration lines at the IAH airport was long and security clearance line was even longer."

Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"

Cons: "Flight kept being delayed"

Pros: "Sleeping"
Cons: "One of the flighty attendents was extremely rude and aggressive. Very unpleasant."

Cons: "Sleeping in the airport"

Pros: "Updates on delays were helpful."
Cons: "2 out of 3 flights were delayed due to baggage scanning problems."

Pros: "Nice"

Pros: "They assigned us to seat 7 by chance because flight was too empty to balance weight..it wad a blessing to have extra room"
Cons: "I was having a terrible back pain so i went to the back where the crew was setting and relaxing and asked for a pillow..they told me they didn't have any..asked if they have a blanket and and they said yes..but never gave it too me..flight was almost 4 hours with no food..COPA AVIANCA charge less and offers full meals..."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable. The atmosphere was nice and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "I didn't like that the crew took so long to help me find an overhead bin location for my carry-on bag. Also, they need to provide FREE entertainment and better snacks for international flights."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."

Pros: "SJO to Houston was excellent. Houston to Nashville was mediocre."

Pros: "It got me to my destination."
Cons: "The service, entertainment, boarding, comfort, and crew haven't changed at all ever since I've flown with united. The crew just seemed to be there to get their pay checks not serve the customers."

Pros: "Good non.stop to Costa Rica."
Cons: "Best flight to Costa Rica out of the tristate area."

Cons: "Having to pay $7.99 for entertainment is ridiculous, especially on an international flight. Just one more way to gouge customers. Especially as a 1K flyer, having to pay for entertainment is just a slap in the face."

Pros: "I've taken a number of airlines, but none as bad as United. I get bad weather, I wouldn't want to go up in a plane in a thunderstorm regardless of the circumstances....but I spent almost a day getting to my destination that should of only taken9 hours tops. Delay upon delay, arriving right when my next flight was leaving. Very rude staff, I saw an attendant yell at a mom and daughter like she was their mom. Non-apologetic to anyone. Their goal is to shove you in the plane and shove you out. Are they safe airline? Yes, they will get you to where you need to be...but not before they make your life hell. I don't normally do reviews on anything, but United still has me frustrated even a week later. I almost forgot, they did give $20 to eat. Do you know how expensive airport food is?"

Pros: "Everything about the flight was great. Both going and return were so on time, it was amazing. On the way home the in flight entertainment was out for the duration of the flight and nobody in the crew really took the time to address it - thought that was a little odd. Thanks again!"

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Cons: "Missed connection due to under staff at customs (don't they know exactly how many people land at each time?) it was ridiculous, of course no help from anyone except "you can sleep on the floor if yoi want"????"

Cons: "old plane and configuration in business"

Cons: "The flight was delayed in landing. I paid to watch tv which should be free on international flights... It use to be and they kept making PA announcements the entire flight. It was very very disruptive."

Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable and cramped. There was no option for on flight entertainment (despite it being an international flight). Probably would never fly United internationally again."

Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Less leg room than any other airline, complementary food is real bad, they charge you for everything, movies, alcohol and food, in other airlines they do not charge you for none of the above!"
