Free movies, and crew were helpful once we were in the air

Gate agent did not start forcing check in, which caused delay in boarding. Ground crew did not stock aircraft until 20 minutes after scheduled departure time. and DFW did the usual 20 minute taxi and then 15 minute hold prior to take off.

did not like having to order from computer when food and beverage server is standing in front of you -- there are not that many selections, and they cannot take a verbal request? this seems de-humanizing, not helpful what you want on a flight is to feel reassured, and not made to feel more alienated or trapped in your seat

Same orice as the old economy tickets, but less benefits. - No carry on - No online check in - total confusion at check in counters because of the additional rush of people trying to check in - unhelpful united staff

Non stop flight. Nice clean seats. Decent entertainment system.

Flying economy sucks. Economy plus helps a little. Plane is packed. No room to move. Food is unhealthy. No room to work. United is no worse than the other carriers in economy class.

We boarded quickly and left on time. There was a slight delay and they were sure to keep us updated as we were leaving why we were stalling. The entertainment options were greT!

As we were landing they did not come by for trash?! After 5 hrs of traveling, especially with a toddler we had quite a bit. They did come by and tell us to put our tray tables up so then I was holding trash on my lap for about 30 min! I finally used my call button and told them to get the trash since I was worried about deplaning with my toddler alone and care for this mountain of trash in our row! Thought the sevice declined as the flight progressed!

Prices are per person, are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in GBP.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
