Pros: "Flight left on time."
Cons: "No charging points at seat and armrest headphone jacks did not work."

Cons: "Delayed more than 2 hours"
Pros: "The crew at the check in counter were very help and just outright awesome. Having missed my flight they were kind enough to find a seat for me on another flight. So I say Weldone to them"
Cons: "As I am tall the seats especially the middle seat was a nightmare espcially when people pullback their seats back. need more space to stretch your legs on long flights"
Cons: "They charged EUR 50 for the 1st bag of luggage on an international flight. I never heard this before."
Pros: "Busy but kind stewardesses"
Cons: "Please offer another snack option besides carboard flavored pretzels."
Pros: "After we boarded there was a lot of confusion with the flight attendant. Apparently people ‘s bags got mislabeled. He didn’t know the those passengers final destination. Then he called out to see if a passenger was on board...shouldn’t he know? He had the list in his hand. Another baggage issue. Third, he asked if there were children under 10...was thoroughly confused when he only found one. It was a bit unsettling to the point where we were wondering where we were really going to end up. But our pilot, Hercules, got us there."
Cons: "Newport News airport was exceptional."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Pilot had a sense of humor."
Cons: "Entertainment seemed canned"
Pros: "The entertainment was good. A lot of things to choose from."
Cons: "The boarding took too long"
Cons: "Rude and disrespectful"
Pros: "It was not a full flight so I didn’t feel cramped and had space for my carry on in the overhead compartments instead of having to check it in due to lack of space like I had to do on all the other AA flights."
Cons: "We were given last minute notice our flight was going to be delayed and our gate changed 3 times. There was never a definite time frame for anything and very vague information was given. Our flight ended up being delayed almost 2 hours. It was my most frustrating experience with any airline. Definitely would not choose to fly with them again"
Pros: "The entertainment choices were very good. It made traveling with children easier."
Cons: "The crew. It seems that the US crew has gotten used to treating customers like animals and giving treats to deplane or calling security is a norm now. They seem to forget that they are working in a service industry. On our flight which was international and long they had quarantined the entire back rows for themselves and one of the bathrooms was also for their use only. In addition they had two choices for the meal they served Chicken and Pasta and they mentioned to customers that they had run out of Chicken. One of the passengers in our group of seven could not eat pasta as she had dietary restrictions after surgery and they told her too bad and she should have ordered a special meal. When she spoke up she was threatened with security. This person is a respected physician in her community and understands the service industry well. The worse part is the crew then proceeded to eat chicken dinners right behind her seat and continued to talk rudely about her. They had not run out of chicken meals just kept them for themselves. It seems American Airlines spends lots of advertising dollars about choosing to fly with them but is forgetting to train their staff about being nice to passengers."
Cons: "The plane arrive almost 2 hours late then there was a 2 hour delay due to weather. My daughter was traveling to Italy so missed her connecting flight by 15 minutes.

Pros: "Movie choices"
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "They lost our bags in Dallas. The customer service rep was useless"
Pros: "Arrived on time"

Pros: "Food was okay. Luckily plenty of wine to get through 8 hours on this horrible plane."
Cons: "No individual video screens. Also our audio did not work ( true of most of one side of plane) so we could not even watch movie on the TINY overhead screen. Reading lights also did not work.

Video equipment at my seat did not work. Did not seem to have enough crew. . . took forever to get the limited service - - crew seemed complacent - no enjoyment in their jobs - doing what they always do. Having enjoyed five years with Delta - I enjoyed my job and the people. No one seems to like their job now. Shame. Takes even more fun out of flying these days. It's a job - more people - more coffee - more sodas.... Don't LIKE it. . . give someone else the chance to fill that position. Flying Should be Fun. . . it's special!! every time."

Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"

Cons: "Delay that caused us missing the connecting flight."
Pros: "The view."

Pros: "Great crews"
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "In OKC the staff was amazing! When I got to denver it wasn’t very pleasant the boarding staff was rude! The person that assisted me with the wheel chair was so preoccupied with her phone we almost ran into people"

Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Tight quarters."
Cons: "There was no entertainment available on this flight. It's a short flight so I don't expect any, however, I continued on to Phoenix that day from Chicago and that is a long flight. I expected free entertainment on that flight, as it was afforded on the flight on the Phoenix to Chicago leg of my flights earlier in the week. The Chicago to Phoenix had entertainment offered but it there was a fee, which I didn't appreciate and did not take part in. I looked around me as much as possible and didn't see anyone else pay for entertainment. Having in flight movies and TV available for feee is a great incentive for flying with United. If these long flights in the future are pay for view, I will not be flying with you when there are alternative carriers who do provide free entertainment. Thank you."
Cons: "Delay in departing Pittsburgh and also in landing in Newark. Boarding in Newark was put in a corner and United personal at the alternate counter was not polite. Delay landing in Venice and apparently at higher speed than normal, which created alarm at the firefighting statin in Marco Polo's airport."

Pros: "It was timely"
Cons: "No room to move around"
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No leg room."
Pros: "United doesn't give any food."
Cons: "Issues with crew delayed the flight. I was further delayed getting to my destination because they forced me to check my bag."
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."

Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Cons: "I wish the entertainment was complimentary."
Cons: "We boarded the plane when the crew knew of a 4 hour weather delay. As soon as the last person boarded we were told to disembark. The time kept getting updated in 30 minute intervals, but the desk staff said we wouldn't be flying for the entire 4 hours. We were again told to board the plane and we would be leaving early, but no we just waited on the tarmac for an hour until the original 4 hour delay. Just give it to folks straight. Everyone was frustrated due to the run around."
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Cons: "I had a flight from Los Angeles to Cleveland with a stop in Chicago on December 29, 2016; however, both flights were delayed. I am contacting customer care for compensation due to a severe delay for the departure and arrival for my flight from Chicago to Cleveland (Flight 786). I also wanted to report a very disappointing experience with the representatives at 1-800-864-8331. I was supposed to arrive at Cleveland, OH (CLE) on December 29, 2016 by 7:30 PM. However, it was closer to 11:20 PM when we finally arrived. The flight was delayed over an hour for departure when they announced the plane was not even ready and present at the gate. Due to this delay, we were not able to land on Cleveland, OH (CLE) because of snow on the runway. We circled Cleveland for roughly 40 minutes and then got redirected to the Detroit. We would've avoided the snow if the flight departed on time since the snow did not hit Cleveland until the delayed flight was airborne. We then landed in Detroit and spent another hour and a half in Detroit. At this time, I called the representatives at United and requested a refund. The representative completely understood my situation and said I would be refunded the full amount to my original payment method. She also assured me that I did not need a case number and that other representatives would be able to look up this information through my confirmation number. This was not the case when I contacted United again to see the progress on the refund. They said there were no annotations and that they could not provide a refund. They advised me that the previous representative had lied to me. While the flight experience caused me to miss the rehearsal dinner and bachelor party for a close friend I served with in the Army and almost caused me to miss the wedding, I feel very cheated and trashed for being lied to by your employees regarding my refund and its validity. This experience has left a very bad taste regarding United Airline's integrity and values."
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Twelve hours of horrible delays, missed connections, and running through airports due to poor aircraft maintenance and mechanical problems. Will never fly United again if I have a choice."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "The struf waffles"
Cons: "Every thing went well"
Pros: "Flight was early!"
Pros: "From Akron to Cleveland it was a great trip"
Pros: "Great crew, smooth flight, beautiful safe take offs and landings"
Cons: "Worst seat cushion I have ever had. EvER. Behind and back are so sore .......even with the short flight. You can do better here...."
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Pros: "No layover, friendly staff"
Cons: "Plug in avail but not accessible under the seat... I feel the tv entertainment should be covered by the ticket cost..if folks want to watch movies then charge for those"
Cons: "they didn't serve us, not even water. Also they tried to land once and they could not and then they took us back and retried. Not an explanation or anything.. I believe that the pilots didn't know what they were doing.... I fly frequently but this is one of the worst experience, plus have in mind that you go to Palm Springs to enjoy and relax not to die.., If you have turbulence least announce the passengers and prepare them."
Pros: "Check-staff was very gracious."
Cons: "Their plane broke down, no assigned gates ,"
Pros: "The help of a guy called CID at Customer Service"
Cons: "1st flight cancelled due to maintenance; 2nd due to crew (no pilot). The feeling is that they cancelled due to few passengers. Been 9h hours in the airport with a 5 month pregnant wife was not fun (mainly for her). Totally disappointed with United. That never happened to me in life before. And I fly at least 2 X month..."
Pros: "Employees were very nice Very easy to board/check in"
