Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew were very nice and the seats were comfy."
Cons: "I would have liked a snack instead of just a beverage alone."
Pros: "Small plane ,comfortable seats,"
Pros: "Heidi was very nice!"
Pros: "Crew was fine and movies, that was it"
Cons: "We started by boarding plane, we sat on plane for nearly an hour before we had to get off due to maintenance. We sat in airport for another hour, got back on and had to wait another hour to take off. Such an uncomfortable experience knowing the plane was down. Horrible time."
Cons: "Aircon was too cool"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment was free so keep me busy."
Cons: "Flight was good had no complaints."
Pros: "Flight attendants were older and very professional"
Cons: "Was not offered a drink or snack on the flight"
Pros: "Brought my own entertainment. Friendly staff. Great boarding process. On time departure"
Pros: "My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee."
Cons: "The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers."
Pros: "Large plane. Cheerful Staff. Food was good as airline food goes. Power and video at every seat. And there was enough room for carry on bags."
Cons: "Seat didn’t really recline. Couldn’t sleep"
Pros: "It seemed they had just installed new carpet and the seats looked like new. The plane was nice."
Cons: "We were 2 and a half hours late to Omaha. There were thirty planes ahead of us to take off in Chicago. Very long wait inside of the plane."
Cons: "the person helping me couldn't understand her and she was aggressive and charged me too much and wouldn't make adjustments about it."
Pros: "The cabin crew were very kind and helpful, always smiling and happy to be of service."
Cons: "It wasn't Air New Zealand, but operated by United Airlines. The plane was uncomfortable, and the entertainment system seemed clunky, unintuitive and outdated. The selection of entertainment, poor in quality, I thought. There were lost of things to watch, but a lot of it was of poor quality. The food was acceptable, but again, it felt like it was done on-the-cheap, and I was eating airline food a la 20 years ago."
Pros: "The flight was quite smooth and left virtually on time. Boarding was simple and fast and the economy plus seats were extremely comfortable."
Cons: "The food was quite poor. United can learn a thing or two about food by flying Cathay Pacific to see what decent airline food is like. As far as entertainment is concerned, while United had a great movie selection the method of controlling the playback was quite poor. Pausing the movie would actually make it stop on several occasions."
Pros: "The aircraft was spacious and well appointed. The crew MEL to LAX were very friendly and offered food and beverages at regular intervals, and walked the aisles regularly in case the passengers needed anything..."
Cons: "On the LAX to MEL return flight, the crew were very unfriendly and only did the bare minimum, and basically just asked 'chicken or fish" and "what beverage do you want", then almost threw the food and drinks at the passengers. The obviously don't enjoy their job very much."
Pros: "I loved the flight, the service, and the whole experience."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike. That's the best part."
Pros: "If it weren't for the great staff, I'd give this flight a 1."
Cons: "The new seats only give the illusion of reclining. There isn't enough space to comfortably lean forward. I thought I'd be sleeping through this flight, however there was absolutely no way to get comfortable. I didn't go to SFO , I was redirected to LAX."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "Air Canada sold the flight to United Airlines - and United moved the flight later and later and later. Six times. When this was combined with a weather delay, we ended up boarding at 11 PM and landing well after midnight. This is not what we signed up for and not what we wanted."
Pros: "0 meals/delays"
Cons: "Got there safely!"
Cons: "My first two flights were delayed (1st flight from Changsha to Beijing was delayed for 4 hours and 2nd flight from Beijing to Houston was delayed for 45 mins), so I missed my last flight from Houston to Orlando to go home! And! They lost both of my luggages! Now I'm forced to stay in Houston airport overnight to catch next flight to go home tomorrow morning. Air China did NOT help anything! They wouldn't even help me rebook my flight when they know I will miss my last connect flight."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so got to sit w/o middle seat psgr."
Cons: "UA app for in flight movie kept losing contact or sound."
Cons: "When sitting straight up in the seat, my knees hit the seat in front of me. United seems to be making the space between each seat terribly close."
Pros: "Pretty basic but no complaints"
Cons: "Basic but no complaints. Why don't you have music and more movie selection of recent movies ...?"
Pros: "Leaving and arriving on time Comfortable head rest Option to watch tv for free"
Cons: "Inefficient boarding process led to confusing lines at the gate and slow movement on the plane."
Pros: "ANA operates 787s which have much nicer cabins and entertainment systems than the older 777s operated by United."
Cons: "The food on United leg is pretty bad after an ANA operated flight. I'm always going to ask for the Vegeteraierain option going forward. Why waist an animal on that feed stuff they give you to eat."
Pros: "The Dreamliner is a very nice plane to fly on. Crew was friendly overall. Food was average. Entertainment was good. Blankets were too thin for a 14+ hour flight. I would fly this particular flight again though. Price was the best when I booked it."
Cons: "I was refused boarding after being told I could fly. A horrible experience--rebooking for my wife and I cost us 1,000 dollars."
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "Didn't have to pay for in-flight entertainment. Plane boarding and exiting was smooth. No delays. Plenty of overhead baggage space."
Cons: "Stuff was not all that pleasant, seemed irritated at everyone, seats promote terrible posture, especially for anyone over 5' 7" it seems."
Pros: "-I upgraded to a better seat for $100 to seat 10C from 32A? -so much room -charging outlet -super friendly crew -thankful for beverage and snack -was able to watch Ghostbusters II on Halloween night and it made me feel better about not being home with my family and missing Halloween with them. Thank you for providing entertainment/cable -best 4 hours I spent on a plane -flight was delayed due to refueling, but I was I didn't mind -can I say I love United."
Pros: "Crew was very good. Food was ok; need to anticipate the more popular choices so there's enough to go around."
Cons: "New Dreamliner has added more business seats resulting in loss of storage space as well as space for your feet when fully reclined."
Pros: "Nice seats and lots of space"
Cons: "Rude crew on board"
Pros: "Evening flight. Crew wasn't the nicest but they were professional nonetheless. Flight itself was smooth but a bit of a bumpy landing (I think it was a bit windy so not surprised. It is Ch). Not the best flight but certainly not the worst either."
Cons: "DirecTV in-flight entertainment. You pay or you're subjected to constant ads and/or snippets of shows. I'd rather watch one free movie that I can't choose rather than pay to watch bad TV."
Pros: "They definitely had more viewing choices in their entertainment than anyone could watch."
Cons: "The two big complaints are the food which was quite pathetic for a 14 hour flight - half of a cold sandwich and one cookie!!! Really?? They need to fly their competition and see how it should be done! The biggest complaint of all is their slight of hand baggage charges. If they're going to partner with another airline, they need some communication and agreement about pricing and allowances. Even though we are United Club members and credit card holders, we were charged nearly $400 to bring our luggage home, after paying just $30., yes, thirty, on Air New Zealand to take two extra bags! United's own overseas policy allows two bags, but they charged us anyway on return because we came on an airline that only allows one even though we paid ANZ to bring extra. Extremely illogical."
Pros: "The fact that we had two checked bags at no cost as well as the communication of the airline crew and also the choice of entertainment which even included HBO and Showtime."
Cons: "There was a grumpy mail air host. Vegetarian option was offered to everyone and hence none left for reminder of journey"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours. I had a two hour drive after which got me in bed at 4:30 AM instead of 1:00 AM. Had to work that day which made it hard to function. Usually great, but was disappointed they didn't offer anything to us for such an inconvenience."
Cons: "Cabin air didn't work until we were in the air, it was easily iver 80 degrees nthere"
Cons: "The United Terminal at Newark is hideous and United should be ashamed to be associated with this poor quality. The airport is a construction zone at best. The aircraft is tiny, cramped and inadequate."
Cons: "Second, much longer, leg didnt have free streaming from a personal device. You were asked to pay $8 to watch TV and movies."
Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "I booked the flight with my boyfriend and we didn't have seats together ever though we were on the same reservation! In the plane I found that entire families had been separated and had the same problem we did."
Pros: "Food was ok reclining seats worked not much else."
Cons: "The reclining seats only work if you are shorter than 187cm I'm taller and so I had to bend my knees as there is nowhere else for your legs to go! The Chardonnay was warm - when served with tasty smoked salmon turned me off. The pillow was a $2 one lumpy and next to useless it's too big for the room you have. My entertainment system was reset three times and it still didn't work properly - no sound and no ability to watch movies that were not child rated. Stewards have to learn to be quiet as some of us are trying to sleep on a 15 hour flight and aren't interested in their laughs and jokes as we are travelling business first because we have to go to work when we get there!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants gave stellar service, especially the ones from Hawaii !!! I wasn't feeling very well and they noticed and checked up on me and made sure I was hydrated and got something to make me feel better. (I was so grateful to have a mom~type take care of me, on a long flight.) Thank You!!!"
Cons: "The lack of space - in the isles AND in between the seats in front of us. Anytime the person in front of me wanted to recline their seat, it made it hard for me to even get out and go to the bathroom. That was not pleasant."
Pros: "Very polite, upbeat crew"
Cons: "Newark airport a mess!"
Pros: "Glad you didn't give priority to those with other designations like priority plus etc"
