Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "There were only snacks, no setback entertainment"
Cons: "Add a meal and seatback entertainment"
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Good seat pitch in economy. Food and beverages included and tasted good surprisingly. Crew were helpful and efficient. Plenty of entertainment options for film, TV and music."
Cons: "Do not like the process of boarding by group number. Another way of squeezing money out of the consumer. Also causes chaos when trying to board. Seats too narrow in economy especially if your broad shouldered."
Cons: "Flight left at 1120 AM and was close to five hours long. They should provided at least a small meal not just waffle cookies! also we paid for “premium seats yet the space was still very cramped."
Cons: "More space on the flight"
Pros: "The woman at the counter was helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."
Pros: "Ease of changing flights same day"
Cons: "Not having to change my entire reservation I had to go through a totally different airport that I was unfamiliar and got to my destination 4 hours later than original plain"
Cons: "Be on time!!"
Pros: "Lots of movies, reasonable seats, arrived early."
Cons: "I'm 6'0" tall and have to pay extra to get enough leg room, one very grumpy flight attendant, mediocre dinner, very unappetizing breakfast"
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Cons: "When I spoke to the United person last week to confirm baggage and carry on requirements. He said I could take a carry on when I turned up to the gates I was charged another fee for my carry on bag. What is baffling is that when I arrived at Denver people were getting complementary check in baggage. I’m so dissatisfied with the booking and the amount it has now cost me ruining any savings I’d had for sanfrancisco"
Pros: "great crew, easy flight"
Cons: "Aircon too cool"
Cons: "Aircon was too cool"
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: "The flight was delayed by a couple hours, causing a missed connection in SFO. The United agents, both in PPT and SFO were greatly helpful in getting me rebooked and accommodated. A special shout out to the *captain* of this flight who helped sort me out, off the clock, after a long flight."
Cons: "The media screen at my seat didn't work at all."
Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"
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: "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."
Pros: "Good service in business class, comfortable seats."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The controlled and orderly way when boarding."
Cons: "The staff from the desk was unfriendly. On boarding no one showed you where your seat is located. The food was dreadful. The same aweful pasta meal on the outbound journey was served again. During the flight I was feeling very unwell I asked the flight attendant our axeick bag which she brought, but I was told to go to the toilet. She did not return to enquire after my well being. I was in the toilet for 5 minutes. Very uncaring. The tea was cold when served"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cabin AirConditioning fault. Air bridge fault all delayed flights from Fort Lauderdale to San Antonio"
Pros: "The crew were competent, friendly and helpful. The back of seat entertainment was very good, with a lot of new releases. When the flight was delayed the pilot did come around and speak to passengers, which I appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were not given any information about what was going on."
Pros: "United seems to have simplified how it separates the boarding groups, so getting on the plane was well organized. The 787 aircraft was spacious and comfortable, which seems to put both passengers and crew in a good mood. Lots of entertainment options were available, so the three hour flight flew by. And we arrived early! A great experience on United."
Pros: "Carole was excellent"
Pros: "Not one thing!"
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed bored and completely uninterested in passengers and their jobs. Worst flight ever."
Cons: "Not much choice of good movies"
Pros: "TV and movie choices should be according to 2018 instead of1980. Also TV should be from running Era"
Pros: "Good trip and on time"
Cons: "Lufthansa as an agent is a mistake! I had to deal with them prior to flying to the US. I have never ever had to deal with such bad service in my entire life. United was great though and I highly recommend them."
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."
Pros: "The TV shows and movie collection is good."
Cons: "Horrible food, no complimentary drinks on economy plus seats. UNITED lost my luggage again (2nd time this year)."
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: "Not a lot of positive to say"
Cons: "Ignorant, rude air hostess, two male hostess, double act the pair of them, if they had of been recorded they would be first today. As I said in my headline, if you hate your job that much find one that makes you happy, United need to do secret shopper experiences on their planes, to quality check their hostess, this cowboys are representing your company and its not good."
Pros: "The staff was pretty polite and helpful"
Cons: "The plane was old, seats didn’t recline and I thought all flights over 4 hours had screens and not personal device entertainment. I was able to use but it’s not conducive to the overall experience."
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly from start to finish"
Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "Entertainment and the crew"
Pros: "small airplane but fly smooth and landed safe."
Cons: "nothing at all"
Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."
Cons: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and very willing to work with everyone."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Horrible uncomfortable plane"
