The booking on line for us senior citizens is very confused to use especially we are not efficient at it. Questions asked going around and around. Better go to a travel agent and have them done for us. ESP the pre check in and order of meal. A third person with experience help me to complete my pre check in. HORRIBLE !

Pros: "Service and food."
Cons: "not much choices in the movie selection"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed and then cancelled NO COMMUNICATION WHATSOEVER as to what was going on. We finally got rebooked in another flight on a Chinese airline at 2:30am so we had to stay at jfk for a total of about 24 hours with no compensation for our time and troubles. Horrible. Experience!"
Pros: "The seats are fairly comfortable, and the service was great."
Cons: "The economy seats are obviously not great. The extended legroom seats are still quite narrow, though the legroom is great."
Pros: "The onboard crews were excellent. The entertainment was good too. However, the HK check in counter staffs were terrible, rude, condescending, unprofessional. They left bad tastes in our mouths and ruined the whole trip experience."

Cons: "Plane seemed tired. The usb charger didn't work and the reading lights were impossible to use without putting glare into other passengers eyes. The seats were uncomfortable and their design made it difficult to stretch your legs out beneath the row in front. It was a 777 and I never find Boeings as comfortable as Airbus. Selection of in flight entertainment was limited and sound quality was poor."

Pros: "I normally fly Delta (Platinum member), but the price this time I thought was ridiculous. I bought the flight on Cathay for 45 percent less and actually I found the service and food quality was better. Both seats were about the same in comfort......So I would do it again"

Very minimal service provided during flight, minimal isle check by flight attendent throughout the 14 hours flight. I had the rudest flight attendant, she didn't smiles. Asked for drinks but never return. My niece request for cup of noodle, instead she responded if didn't my niece had already one. I asked for beef dinner but she placed on my table a turkey instead stated she ran out after I told her that's not beef.

Then that 2nd rescheduled connecting flight moved 10 hours later was AGAIN delayed!!! Wasted 1 day that would have been spent nicely in London. What a way to ruin our London vacation by Cathay Pacific."

Pros: "Good collection of entertainment options"
Cons: "Biggest gripe: No onboard wifi. As a business traveller, this is important to me."
Pros: "Easy check in, and a pleasant flight! Thank You!!!"
Pros: "I was seated around a number of sick people - and it was a middle seat so hard to get up since there was pretty much no space"
Pros: "This was the cheapest direct flight to Hong Kong so I bought it. Alsonivam a qantas member so got the points. It was a day trip for me to go so I wanted to get some sleep both ways. I'm 188cm and the seats are just a little bit close together to let you stretch your legs but ok. Entertainment system is good and window seat was ok."
Cons: "Meals are terrible - soft mushy potatoes and scrambled eggs need a revamp, device is s bit chuck it at you. Flight out was 1.15 hours late but suited me other people were put out."
Pros: "Reboot shut my system down for a bit. Rebooting restored ok"
Pros: "Crew Service and Leg space is great. Automatic check-in station is simple and easy to operate, speeds up the queue for checking-in and luggage drop."
Cons: "Seat has no recline option, only movable part is the base of seat, back support recline is not available, thus making it impossible to rest. Food was served cold, CX used to be much better at food handling, cold omelette and soggy bacon is definitely not appetizing even for a hungry morning flight. Entertainment is ok, nice options, but LCD screen is getting old and blurry, rather not strain my eyes to try watch anything on it."
Cramped; no space for luggage beyond group 3; only a single cup of iced beverage beyond water (rather than a can) and just a cracker for snack, even on 4.5 hour flight.

Cons: "Baggage policy on my fare rate. Ended up spending about $300 to check a carryon. (proper size and weight) I knew it was not included in the fare, but assumed that I could check it or carryon for a *reasonable* fee. Checkin personnel not sympathetic despite travel being forced by coronavirus eviction. Great fare turned into an expensive full fare."
Pros: "GREAT SEATS AND SERVICE"
Cons: "other than free flights, nothing"
Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."
Pros: "Premium economy was great"
Cons: "Toilets were broken"
Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."

Cons: "Dinner for long distance flights."

I was subjected to humiliating search and with my bag still at the Tel Aviv, because they didn't have enough times Worst experience ever!!"
Pros: "Onboard, sat down & fell asleep."
Cons: "The tv/entertainment system does not seem to have a FF/RW function. So if you have seen the beginning of the movie playing on the previous flight, you have to sit through it again."

Cons: "The food was not good, salad was old, and overall not good."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Pros: "Service,management, food"
Cons: "The comform of the seats was very poor. Entertainment only worked half way. Stewards did not ask if I wanted to eat or not. Only pessengers on the alley seats were asked. Very little attention was given to make passengers comfortable."
Pros: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"
Cons: "The plane was late, I request wheal chair for my mother because she can't see for one eye no more and only 30% can see on her good eye and in Houston she was lost inside the aeroport because no one take care of my mother , yes lost for almost two hours, very very disappoint , I always book thru Kayak and never complaint, this time very disappointed , Glad my mother is okay"
Pros: "We enjoyed the ability to have beer and wine included. We thought the meals going to Tel Aviv and on the return were very tasty, good portions, and served at the appropriate times. We loved the choices of movies/tv that were updated and new and also included."
Cons: "The only issue we had was getting up to go to the bathroom midflight. There was some slight turbulence and the attendants demanded we sit down for safety (it wasn't too bad though) yet once we got back to our seats the turblence was fine, and we got up to go again and the same thing happened. There were long lines for the bathrooms. I'm not sure if that can be avoided though."
Pros: "the flight was cancelled!!!"
Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "Did not appreciate the flight attendants at all. VERY rude staff. Not considerate by making everyone wait a LONG time to serve food, which was not served in a friendly manner at all. It was quite obvious they did NOT care about our comfort or experience. Would NOT recommend unless I'm desperate and feel like being around people who hate their job and want me to know it."
Pros: "The attendant on this flight was very nice. many times and to get on a flight with United the attendants seem like they don't want to be there and they don't want you to be there. But this man was genuinely joyful to each customer."

Pros: "everything is perfect"

Cons: "Not enough good movies"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."
Cons: "We haven't even left yet"
Cons: "Some moron decided that passengers shouldn't be allowed to bring drinks on the plane. This means that after passing security and customs, after buying an overpriced cup of latte, you are told to spill it or else. And that's in a country that lives on security. Unacceptable. Unjustified and unheard of."

Cons: "The food was terrible"
