Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Got on the plane. Grateful we got to where we were going. Smooth transition to aircraft."
Cons: "Seating order was not good. Plane should seat from the back to the front. It was reverse order and a little taxing. No one came to check on passengers, offer concessions etc."
Pros: "leaving on time"
Cons: "provide a snack"
Cons: "Communication. I cannot speak with anyone at flyus about a refund. Qatar airways denied boarding to ALL passengers heading to Saudi Arabia, I was left stranded in Dallas, and could not contact ANYONE."
Pros: "On-time, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats are too tight. Board from the outsides in, not front to back. Windows seats in the back go first (after first class, ADA, etc), and fill the cheap seats back to front. As it is, literally everyone with an aisle seat ends up on first and overheads fill before people have a chance to know, requiring a lot of against-the-flow foot traffic and delays pushing away from gate."
Cons: "Everything AA did nothing right."
Pros: "Missed our connection flight. Time to close terminal to far away. Ran to gate closed as we got there."
Cons: "Spending night in Chicago O'hare airport where we rerouted."
Pros: "Everything was awesome. No wait, fast boarding, nice crew!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. TSA in Tulsa can always speed up or open more lanes!"
Pros: "On time flight, efficient, friendly crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "I was told that 30 minutes is plenty of time to make a connection at DCA. However in order to make a connection there you need to take a bus across the tarmac. The bus sat on the tarmac loading up with way too many people for 10+ min… Almost missed our connection"
Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."
Cons: "LEFT 30 MIN LATE, DUE TO CONNECTING FLIGHT."
Pros: "Crew did a great job!"
Cons: "Not much everything was smooth."
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Pros: "Not much probably just that they came by twice with the drink cart."
Cons: "Very limited room in seats compared to other airlines. First class passengers enjoyed full meals while everyone in coach got a cookie. One tv for every few rows felt like I was flying in 2000 still. This is why American is behind JetBlue and Delta. I will pay more nd y time just not to fly American."
Cons: "Rude and disrespectful"
Pros: "departure and arrival time"
Cons: "the passenger next to me smelled horrible"
Pros: "Made it to destination"
Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"
Cons: "My seat was broken and would not recline, i mentioned it to the stewardness and even though there were other empty seats they did not offer to move me."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Cons: "This was an updated 737 with pleather seats and a sleek look inside. But what matters most is leg room for me. There was none. I flew for 5 hours in totally cramped conditions. I loved the page in the mag about seat exercises to keep your leg circulation up. Couldn't bend my knees even. Disgusting"
Pros: "Smooth flight, takeoff, and landing. Efficient boarding and unloading plane. Excellent timing of departure and arrival. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "No leg room. No food. No entertainment. Long taxi time to gate after landing at DFW. Crew all business not that friendly."
Pros: "We were20 min early"
Cons: "The seats are stiff"
Pros: "The flight wasn't full and so there was more space to spread out than is normal on long-haul flights."
Cons: "For the second time on a Madrid/JFK flight in two weeks, overhead lights were broken for some seats, which is absurd for a 7.5 hour flight. Luckily, my flight attendant was kind enough to allow me to change seats to one in which the overhead light was actually working. Unfortunately, the plane was so busted that even though my overhead light was working, the headphone jacks in both of the seats that I had access to went off in the midst of food service, and as far as I could tell was never reset. Finally, and most appallingly, one of the flight attendants was completely out of control, and during the boarding process repeatedly and loudly scolded passengers. During service, she rammed the food cart into multiple seats so hard that food flew out of it onto the floor. Rather than apologizing to the customers whose seats she had rammed, she laughed loudly"
Cons: "Nobody gave us an explanation on why it was late"
Pros: "Automatic ticket rebooking"
Cons: "It being cancelled."
Pros: "The very long TSA line was very fast. Good job TSA. Flight attendants were very attentive."
Cons: "Found the first class seat capsule uncomfortable after about three n hours. Certainly would not want it for Transocean flights."
Pros: "Pilot made up time so we made it in early!"
Cons: "Nothing was good! Horrible horrible airline!"
Pros: "flight time was very good, arrived early"
Cons: "Food options were even more deplorable than the last flight. Ate very little. Might go with ANA next time."
Cons: "The in flight crew did not even attend the passenger properly or even did not satisfy the passengers with food what they supposed to deserve. I ultimately rate it poor airways and wish not to travel with BA."
Pros: "Friendly Crew."
Cons: "The food that was served."
Pros: "We enjoyed the room on the seats and the power outlets were very comfortable. Air Crew was extremely attentive!"
Cons: "Too much space in between meals provided and small portions."
Pros: "Great crew and on time"
Cons: "Arrival G14; Departure H18 with only 35 minute layover, a really loooong walk at speed. Need tunnel from G to H or moving walkways or a "train.""
Pros: "The flight was on time The flight attendants were were very helpful and friendly. Food service was good. I am a vegan and they were very accommodating. The fact that we had 2free checked bags was great"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "The crew was terriffic"
Cons: "seats are tiny, but that's what I paid for."
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally lovely through delay except for lead attendant who spoke down to attendants and passengers alike (would refer to me in third person in front of me--asking attendant condescendingly "why is he here?"). terrible sense of service, spoke like I was a grade school kid in her class. Gate agent gave me last minute seat change which was very cool of her"
Cons: "Plane is terribly old, has ashtrays and audio channels for entertainment. More importantly, mechanical failures at and after gate. Total delay of over 2 hours. My girlfriend flew this same plane and had even longer delays plus needed to divert In flight and turn around and land in heathrow on a mxp-jfk route (they were over the Atlantic). Problems continue for me 2 months later on this route and as a pattern it's incredibly unsettling. I'm questioning whether taking the return flight on a plane that's clearly begging to be retired"
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Cons: "Four and a half hours on board and just a cookie? Really!?"
Pros: "What I absolutely adored is that I left my phone in Philly, and the gate agents put it on the next flight up to Boston. I picked it up from American Luggage Services in Boston the next day. Priceless!"
Cons: "Terrible airline. Will not fly them again."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Pros: "nice flight - nonstop got us exactly where we want"
Cons: "not a big selection on food... just cookies (although good it would be nice to have some selection)"
Pros: "The seats weren't bad and there was enough space for my carry on and personal bag"
Cons: "It was so hot the entire flight and the overhead air was very low pressure that it didn't even feel it touch my head. The person next to me had very bad odor and was hoping the air would clear it for me but it didn't because the overhead air was so low."
Cons: "LONG LINES at passport check, LONGER LINES after we picked up the luggage. There were only two people working after the luggage pickup for hundreds of passengers. People were fighting and yelling and it was an awful experience. We then had to go through SECURITY AGAIN to get to our transfer plane. Our plane was late, otherwise it would have been very tight schedule."
Pros: "It wasn't a full flight so I had more legroom, since I didn't have a person sit beside me on both flights. The flights arrive on time. Boarding was organized, quick and effective."
Cons: "Flight attendant provided a snack to everyone and forgot to offer a snack to me. There were children on both flights, kicking my seat through 60% of the flight. There was not entertainment provided for brief flights and the snack selection was mediocre."
Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"
Cons: "Delay that caused us missing the connecting flight."
Cons: "Very very delayed. Made traveling home difficult on me and my family."
Pros: "Great crews"
Cons: "Not sure"
Pros: "My trip overall was great . I like the many stops for us to walk around and not be stuck in the plane for 11 plus hours . Our planes all the way to Zurich and back had no delays at all . Awesome"
Cons: "The only proble we experience was in the way back our booking didn’t show in the system only partial."
Pros: "The newer Embraer 175 had more leg room than most which is much appreciated."
Pros: "On time. Flight attendant was exceptional."
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork"
Pros: "Again, on time and great crew."
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"
Pros: "i slept for all but the last 30 min, where i read my book till we landed."
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."
Pros: "On time Nice crew"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Pros: "I like that this flight got me from point A to point B. It was uneventful."
Cons: "I am tall and there is never enough leg room"
Pros: "The flight was excellent"
Pros: "That I didn't have to walk to Fargo. I wasn't dragged off a plane."
Cons: "3 flights to Fargo were cancelled. I was told I would not get to Fargo until 32 hours after my original time I was suppose to land in Fargo. After spending a fair amount of time on the phone with customer service I was able to get me on a Flight to Minneapolis that did not arrive till 1:30am then had to take a rental car to drive 3.5 hours to make it to my destination. I was not compensated for any of this. My return flight from Fargo to St. Louis was also Delayed. Both from Fargo and from Chicago. I have never experienced such poor scheduling from an airline or as many delays or cancelled flights in just a few day period."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight delayed for 2.5 hours. Food at airport terminal specific to United ridiculously expensive, particularly for a family, e.g.. $8.50 for French fries, etc."
Pros: "Comfortable seats for economy"
Cons: "Computers were down in Akron Ohio. Flight was delayed an hour. Chicago was delayed 2 hours. There was an earlier flight i should have been booked on."
Cons: "No food on the fligh"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Flight attendant never smiled once. She got short with the lady in front of me. Just looked like she doesn't like her job. You could tell she didn't want to be there. I never did hear the Captain speak. The crew just seemed unfriendly to me. Service at the airport was great!"
Pros: "It was on time and I had no problems whatsoever."
Pros: "The snacks that was given"
Cons: "There was a delay leaving and while we was in the air."
Pros: "I love THe. cak airport. ANd I am flying United again tomorrow"
Cons: "My carry on. Didn't fit. Had to check it after I boarded. Front desk said it was good. I bought it For THaT purpose.. The retailer advertises it as tsa approved carry oOn?"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No leg room."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2 hours"
Cons: "Explained above"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence. Horrible landing...very abrupt."
Cons: "Worst customer service of my life. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again."
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: "I liked that the crew tried their best to make sure that everyone was happy. Key word was tried"
Cons: "Everything almost we was delayed by almost 3 hours. Crew members kept giving us false hope for no reason"
Pros: "Everything went better than expected, no line, easy flights , short layovers. Everything just went smooth."
Pros: "I was late to get to airport-- the airport is small-- I hauled and managed to get checked in and got to gate 15 minutes before take off. There was no one at the gate door. I went to another gate and she tried to call the attendant at the door. She didn't respond because her phone was at the desk. I was frustrated I didn't get on while I could see she was talking with people at the gate and in the airplane-- but I should have been there earlier. That said-- she came out and was incredibly helpful-- she managed to get me on a flight only an hour after that one and I didn't miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "I have nobody sitting next to me"
Cons: "The 20 min delay"
Pros: "The struf waffles"
Cons: "Every thing went well"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled, so I can't say how the flight was. However, I can say that in my 20 years of travel, this was by far the worst, most stressful experience I have ever had. I was placed on 2 other flights with 2 other airlines and wasn't notified until AFTER I was already checking in with another airline (this is also after calling the airlines regarding the cancellation, several hours before heading to the airport). Worst experience. Do not recommend."
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."
Cons: "United told us our plane was delayed, then they cancelled it. No one notified us, we just sat there and found out for ourselves."
Pros: "From Akron to Cleveland it was a great trip"
Cons: "Man in front of me smelled so every time he moved the odor came back to me and since I was stuck in the last row it had no where else to go!"
Cons: "Fly being delayed for more than 6 hours"
Cons: "I hated everything"
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient boarding"
Cons: "Not much that could be helped. Short flight, very turbulent on takeoff and landing. Getting stuck in front of a kid who kept dropping her tray table open and slamming it shut wasn't fun, but I know United isn't responsible for someone else's sucky parenting. And when did the leg room shrink???"
Pros: "Check-staff was very gracious."
Cons: "Flights always delayed delta sucks in Denver"
Pros: "See above comment"
