Pros: "Flight attendants were proficient and courteous."
Cons: "The seats are horrible and gave me backache. Hardly any cushion that could provide any form of comfort to an 11 hour flight and the recline was nonexistence"

Pros: "Had the whole of 3 seats to myself. Was a fast and pleasant and direct flight. Flight attendants gave me the option to take the row. Nice of her."
Cons: "Food selection and tastiness ... room for improvement."

Cons: "Free high speed Wifi. More room / comfort"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment that’s all"
Cons: "Better crew and food"

Cons: "Delayed flight, seat didn’t recline"

Cons: "More time was spent by cabin attendees selling food and drink items to one row than the rest of the passengers, making us wait for complementary water or other drinks . Really? There should be equal service for all passengers. Makes me wonder if there are incentives for the sale of extra items"

Pros: "In flight entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Departure was 45-60 minutes late because the plane arrived late. We sat on the runway for ~ 20 mins after landing in Chicago because there was no available jetway. Passport “spot check (?!) at jetway for all deplaning passengers created a slow crush once we left the plane."

Pros: "the crew was amazing and pleasant."
Cons: "everything went well and what i was expecting."

Cons: "The plane took forever to take off"

Cons: "Better seats / choice of entertainment. They have not updated the content in months."

Cons: "There was a delay at the beginning with no communication. The AC was off in the beginning and it was too hot hen after it wa turned up way too high and was freezing. The seats were really uncomfortable."

Pros: "- Food was good, (3 cup chicken) - Ontime departure - Early arrival - Friendly attentive staff"

Pros: "Everything was in schedule. Bonus was those smaller extra foam pillows in Polaris."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "Got bit six times by a rogue mosquito that made it onboard during boarding."

Cons: "False advertising it was a United not a Swiss flight"

Pros: "Entertainment, and leg space."
Cons: "Full plane, long wait to use lavatory. Crew was good, but should have upped their game under the circumstances, especially with regards to keeping the lavatory clean. The noodles for breakfast turned out to be porridge, and went straight to the waste basket."

Pros: "On time and flight crew were very courteous and professional."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Everything! The customer service was terrible and cold. Non refundable tickets should state in huge red writing that they are non refundable!!!"

Pros: "Good average flight, everything was efficient, comfortable, reasonable value but not outstanding."

Pros: "Flight was on time and on schedule,"
Cons: "The cost of a one way ticket was more than a return flight The entertainment system did not work, no movies were accessible on the entire plane for the 12 hour flight. Meals were OK but nothing fantastic to write home about Seat were crowded for eccomomy class, I flew on Emirates on my way to Zurich, for 60% of this flight cost, and would give them a solid 9 or 10 rating our of 10. This was an old plane, 747 Jumbo, Looked tired and was loud inside."

Cons: "The yogurt that was served in business class was out of date by 10 days"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food and service not bad. Flight on time."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. One snarky light attendant. Little leg room. Terrible selection of films for all passengers. Have to get United app on ground--need this to be communicated better, on website, before boarding, and onboard."

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay of an hour to get to my destination"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Worst airline and customer service in the world."

Cons: "United is no longer customer friendly. Personnel on ground are like robots. They no longer recognize loyal customers as the core. Stewardess and stewards are not courteous. The steward was chewing while serving food. No more what high standards are about. Just to get through with the job. Sad."

Pros: "The purser was amazing. He set a high bar for personal service and caring."
Cons: "Lots of problems with seats around us (and ours) in business class. For a new airplane (787) that was surprising!"

Cons: "too much technical problems too long of delays,horrible"

Pros: "Shanghai"
Cons: "Los Angeles"

Pros: "The pilot did a good job. However the cabin crew needs more training. Very rude and unattentive"
Cons: "Rude and incompetent staff on this flight. Plus the overweight/hot/sweaty/snorlax gentleman squeezing me into my window seat for 12hrs was pleasant."

Pros: "Lady at boarding was very helpful let me board because I was having trouble walking due to knee operation"

Pros: "Crew service,food was excellent, entertain was ok except the audio no music selection to cannot choose individual music cannot forward or playback songs but overall it was an excellent flight especially Shanghai to Sfo trip"

Pros: "Fantastic minus the fact this flight was canceled without any notification."
Cons: "I wasn't notified that my flight was cancelled until I tried to check in online a few hours before. Then I was booked on a terrible next day combination. I had to book with another carrier for $400. I missed out on time and money."

Pros: "The variety of movies and music to listen to. Very comfortable"
Cons: "The quality of food could be better. I always order a Hindu meal not because that's my background but because it has more flavor than a standard meal"

Pros: "The plane was big and they made sure to keep you hydrated."
Cons: "Most of the airline staff were unbelievably rude. They wouldn't let me 91 year old grandfather get up to stretch at ask during the flight. They also told me to stay out of the way and sit down during a medical emergency when I got up because they needed a doctor."

Cons: "The flight did not take off."

Pros: "Fight was 45 delay but still 10 minutes earlier arrived.that was very good."

Pros: "Comfortable seats on the long flight. The crew did their best to put together a vegetarian breakfast for me."
Cons: "It would be helpful to make meal choice an easy option as you are purchasing your flight, or checking in. More vegetarian options ready for guests on flight."

Pros: "Crew members are nice and attentive."
Cons: "Entertainment: they took away personal screen but then the "new" personal device entertainment option never worked on our roundtrip flight SFO-PVG. The movie froze every 10-15min even on their own big screen. Food was very disappointing even by airline food standard. I was not expecting it to be great food but hey at least provide some options with decent taste please? Comfort: Seats are tight and you will have very minimal space and an awkward position if the person in front of you recline the seat but you don't. Flight is old and seats are uncomfortable. Very little leg room"

Cons: "$25 for one checked bag, no heads up about needing to download an app to watch free in flight entertainment"

Pros: "Flight was on time even with a take off delay"
Cons: "On late flight would be nice with pillow/blanket Somewhere along the way our approved TSA locks were taken and zipper on one suitcase broken because of it. Not happy about that."

Pros: "I'm never traveling with United again."

Pros: "Crew friendliness"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess with an adjacent gate exiting at the time of boarding creating a melee of people crossing queues. You have a carry-on baggage policy - stick to it. I wasn't carrying any roll-ons or large items but many of my fellow passengers were carrying multiple items in the hope of either getting them on or having them checked for free. Complete shambles with later boarders running up and down the aisle trying to fit their carry-ons into overhead lockers. Solution: Enforce one item only; Apply free checked items at the gate early. Apply a fee for items that don't fit and were not offered up for checking."

Pros: "The snack"
Cons: "For the price I paid, it was a terrible seat, no room with 2 people sitting on either side."

Pros: "Had no problems!"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable and very tight."

Pros: "Crew was courteous, though not very helpful. I liked the convenience of a direct flight."
Cons: "First the change fees. To reschedule for a week later would have cost over $800. I only paid $540 for the RT ticket! Second, my seat was broken and would not stay upright. Attendant simply told me to not lean back. Furthermore the audio in my wife's seat did not work; only produced static. Although we had these problems, and the plane was not full, the attendant did not offer a solution - like changing seats. Chinese airlines offer free second bag, and not cost changes. I will probably choose another carrier, even if it cost a bit more, for the extra flexibility and service"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Like any flight, the lack of choice in included snacks."

Cons: "It is not a problem not to have a personal entertainment screen in front of you; but both the wifi system and the control in my chair arm were not working!! And this being a 14 hour flight !!"
