Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connection"
Pros: "On time departure."
Cons: "Aircraft condition is very poor. Inoperable inflight internet."
Cons: "It was hot on the plane and the gate situation was a disaster. So chaotic and stressful. So crowded. Asking people to take later flights. Sucked."
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Cons: "That flight for 2.5 hrs is way to tight. An hour, hour and a half... OK. But 2.5 hrs on a packed flight was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Amazing!"
Pros: "Despite the fact that im a platinum member they offer no benefits during the flight. Seats are torture chairs . Im definitely moving my bussiness w another airline"
Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"
Pros: "Crew entertainment"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and professional."
Cons: "Plane was very hot and cramped."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no reason given. Flight attendant touched my baby without asking if it was ok. Too many announcements over the speaker. 20 min one trying to sell us a credit card was ridicoluolously long. It was also after an ad for it on the video screen."
Pros: "Nice crew! Specifically remember Monica"
Cons: "Boarding was inconvenient and the plane was half empty, leaving the majority of the passengers in the back. I’m sure it’s because of weight distribution but it’s still kind of annoying."
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "boarding could have been better. the plane was half empty and the lady at the gate took my bag and let others bigger on the plane. I just thought she could have use a little better judgement. It was fine on all the other flights and within the guidelines. And there was lot of overhead space"
Cons: "My flight was late, so I was in a rush to get my connection."
Pros: "Service was great in 1st class"
Cons: "The movie Black k Klansman was great but the system had a problem. Not sure if just my seat or the whole digital video system. Every few minutes it would get choppy and unwatchable. I had to rewind and then it would be fine for a while. Like a video buffering problem."
Pros: "People were ok"
Cons: "The boarding process is a mess at this airport. Feel sorry for anyone with accessibility issues. Stairs to all planes."
Cons: "Same is last."
Pros: "Speedy check in and security check in. Seats in plane comfortable. Staff wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing,"
Cons: "4 hours delayed"
Cons: "Our departure flight was cancelled several times and we were not given an explanation. Poor communication and customer service."
Pros: "short flight, crew was nice"
Cons: "left 40 min late due to a communication error deciding what crew would work the plane. didn’t find out why the flight was delayed until airborne."
Cons: "3 planes all with mechanical issues... numerous people left stranded, the whole thing was a nightmare. Finally got home around 1 00 AM. But the worst part was the gate agents I literally felt like I was disrupting their day! Email sent to American."
Pros: "No food, no entertainment. Flight very smooth. No legroom"
Cons: "No legroom. They made me check carry on"
Cons: "Diverted and delayed. Got home 8 hours later then I should have."
Pros: "No hassle of changing terminals in JFK, no bagagge claim, AA check-in-this time, was a "good luck"....Connection in Helsinki, very quik!"
Cons: "Finnair flight AY06 are old aircrafts. Every other in-seat monitor was out of order, flight attendants could not do much. That created mess for passengers, trying to move their seats to the ones with working monitors....."
Pros: "I usually fly Air France but AA was terrific. Tasty food, pleasant crew, even the toilets were nicely maintained during the 9 hours flight. The only thing that AF does better is provide a full array of printed matter before boarding."
Pros: "*finally* getting rebooked"
Cons: "The aircraft was downgraded, so there were 12 "overbooked" seats. The flight was delayed several times, with each new delay only being acknowledged after the previous departure time had already passed. Eventually, the flight was "delayed" to 3:15, but then it was bumped BACK to 2:45, so one woman ended up missing the flight because she had gone to the lounge based on the 3:15 departure. I accepted a voucher, but as the original flight kept getting delayed and I couldn't receive the voucher until the doors closed, I almost missed the flight I was rebooked on. If airlines would just communicate better (e.g., tell us there's a delay *before the departure time has passed*), people would be much more willing to deal with the hassle."
Cons: "Terrible airline. Will not fly them again."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew besides the message below. Still one of my favorite airlines!"
Cons: "Crew made too many announcements that were commercial. The volume of the announcements was out of sync with the inflight entertainment audio and hurt my ears."
Pros: "You never let me know in advance, I had to go to aa terminal. I almost lost this flight in Sfo airport."
Pros: "Once we got on the plane, everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours."
Cons: "Lots of turbulence."
Cons: "Airline had no gates at destination and made us sit on board for an hour after landing. Should have been protactive and found air stairs to disembark instead of forcing passengers stuck on hot plane."
Pros: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding sequence"
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Plane was on schedule luggage taken as I boarded and help available as needed. This is very important for an 80 year old. Thanks for a great trip. Sue"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "We made it home safely"
Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "excellent in flight experience, crew was helpful and friendly. Overall a great experience"
Pros: "Getting there safe and sound"
Cons: "We didn't fly FinAir, it was American Airlines"
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wished the airline would have checked my bag rather then leave it at the gateway Time was wasted if you had a connecting flight"
Pros: "Flight was not full so i got two seats to myself. Movie selections was great, and crew was great ."
Cons: "Baggage charge. I always try and fly with southwest if possible no baggage fee and they have an overall better vibe for the flyers"

Some rude flight attendants with poor customer service!

Pros: "I like that I was finally able to come home"
Cons: "The United Airlines reps could have shown some empathy to the passengers who were delayed. The arline knew we had connecting flights and could've alerted the other flight that we were there and to wait on us. The connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 only to find that the flight had not only boarded but had already left. The reps at the counter showed no level of empathy and acted put out when asked to provide transportation to the reassigned gate. Lastly, the flight could've offered something more than a $10 food voucher, especially since the majority of the food in the airport is greater than $10."
Pros: "Best Airline."
Cons: "Nothing, flights are always great in my experience with United."
Cons: "Plugs would be nice. Food isn’t great and drinks are more expensive than other airlines"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Pros: "We were early. We sat together"
Cons: "Too strict on check in baggage weight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Seat bottoms are very short on this plane--several inches shorter than normal."
Pros: "I liked the lounge."
Cons: "The boarding process could've been better (no excess of gate changes, overbooking the flight, and kicking people out of their seats). Additionally, the food on board could've been better. My chicken was not chicken and lastly the airline's hard product could've been better, no IFE is a big no-no."
Cons: "My bag beat me home. How does that happen?"
Pros: "Boarding was quick.... I am just filling space to get to 50 characters as United was quite bad and that’s paying for first class"
Cons: "First class doesn’t get you into their United Club before the flight. You still have to pay for any food in first class. And they tell you need to download the app after you exit the airport area and lose WiFi and coming international couldn’t go and download before flight. United was a huge disappointment."
Pros: "It got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "Very crowded, packed in like sardines and the plane was uncomfortably warm!"
Pros: "Smaller plane was awesome. Flight service great. Checkin easy."
Cons: "We are okay with seat area but would ask that united freeze seat backs. The inconsiderate bumpkins in front of us put seat back and then leaned forward the whole flight. we could not even put our tray table all the way down. Coke spilled all over us in turbulence as liose tabke bounced significantly more than if set in place. Give people rude, freeze saet so cant recline or remove tray tables so we dont hurt ourselves due to rude people."
Pros: "Going home"
Pros: "Crew were fabulous with my children, 2 and 5 years old."
Cons: "Not enough room on jetway to collapse and open stroller. My kids almost got trampled as I was doing this even though they stood still against the wall!"
Pros: "Bording was smooth."
Cons: "No WiFi. Video system not working. Poor leg room. Worst airplane food I have ever had - disgusting. Flight attendants inattentive and unappoligetic."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent and went over and above to help us"
Cons: "We were told due to the delay that CSR ‘s would help us with making our flights. Upon arrival no csr. Plane was still at terminal. Had to make 2 calls to a supervisor before csr’s Would do their job and get us boarded. Finally they came to their senses."
Cons: "The crew was haughty and rude, my purse was taken and stowed in overhead storage, the person sitting next to me wouldn't stow the carry on luggage. I needed to take my daily medication during the flight and was not able to. I have chronic health issues and needed to take it on schedule, I was delayed in getting home because I had to stop and eat in the airport and take my medication"
Pros: "Fast and friendly staff from check in to landing. Southern folk don’t rush you and actually listen to consumers concerns."
Cons: "None...nice, short flight"
Pros: "Check in, arrive ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No entertiment, no snack only little bag of pretzels"
Cons: "We were delayed by more than 6 hours."
Pros: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"
Pros: "We got there safely with our stuff."
Cons: "The stupid led by the unwilling."
Cons: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful. Comfort is OK but that's because we shelled out $35 per seat extra."
Pros: "Plane side checked bags. Kind flight crew."
Cons: "Perfect weather. Delayed an hour."
Pros: "Missed connection in SF to Medford due to other planes at our gate not allowing us to de-board on time to make my connection to Medford ...!!"
Pros: "United is usually my first airline choice, so the flight went smoothly as I expected."
Pros: "very helpful"
Pros: "Very good!"
Cons: "My experience on this flight was not good. The crew was not really quite friendly in my opinion. Then my luggage did not arrive with me in the same flight. When it eventually showed up the next day it was damaged. The Agent at the counter was very unfriendly and unhelpful- he essentially said "if you read the fine print on your ticket purchase, you'll see that external damages are not covered by any airlines ". Sad!"
Pros: "Cost my son and I one whole day getting back home. Canceled flight first scheduled day, canceled flight next day, 4 hr layover etc. etc. etc. Over 20 hrs to get from Shreveport to Bakersfield CA. Darn glad I left my car at the airport as we got there at 2:30 in the morning. F. B."
Pros: "Air traffic control stopped all flights to Chicago, so my itinerary got changed and ended up taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Because it didn't go anywhere."
Cons: "When I attempted to check in for flights using the United app both outgoing and return, I found boarding passes were not available for all flights and had to call United to have reservation adjusted so boarding passes could be issued. Don't know why? but inconvenient."
Pros: "I had a terrible time flying from IAH to Pensacola with United. I was flying on Christmas Day and there were not enough employees from United to help the customers. One of United employees completely disregarded me when I needed help, and I ended up missing my flight."
Cons: "S"
Pros: "Due to weather delays "not able to accommodate" Service representative had an attitude. I understand there are a lot of issues, but it's their job in customer service and if anyone should be upset it should be the customer for not being able to make their flight as scheduled."
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "All of it. EVERY SINGLE BIT..."
Pros: "Everyone was helpful. And professional"
Cons: "Plane change from lie down seats to regular. Intermittent sound on TV. Only movies & not very good. Attendant spilled water on me & iPad filling glass for window passenger. Seat reclinred but needed to be manually pulled upright. Not very good value for 1st class ticket price."
Pros: "My flight was on time. I appreciate that."
Cons: "Narrow seats. Literally no leg room for me. It was a terrible time for me, especially since I was in the middle seat."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Everything ran on time"
Cons: "Would love healthier snacks"
Pros: "Great price and comfortable seating. Also friendly staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Nothinh"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Cons: "Late, waited for a plane while numerous flights to Ontario and Sacramento came and went. Unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed not enough information. Missed connection."
Pros: "They still offer drinks. It was a short flight, so all the bad things didn't have to be endured for as long."
Cons: "Every time I fly United, I realize they shrank the seat size, again. Oh, and the flight attendant spilled my drink on me. Only said, "sorry, buddy" and then got me a couple of napkins... Was friendly other than that, though. O.o"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, very firm, back of seat was like leaning against a piece of wood. OK for this short flight, longer flight would have been extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "The people I sat next to."
Cons: "I missed my first flight because the plane left 15 min early. I was at the gate before the plane detached and the guy said I should be on the plane 15 min before and that he wasn't going to stop the plane from going. I had a business meeting that I was trying to get to so him doing this completely ruined my day and purpose for flying and spending $300 on a flight. I have NEVER experienced anything like this. Once on my rescheduled flight the attendant made several comments about the fact that I had a pillow with me. If you don't know someone situation then you should make any comments at all. I had just finished a 5 day drive across country and unfortunately the pillow needed to get home with me. Not a single employee was kind welcoming or helpful. I will never fly with this airline again. I will be letting EVERYONE I speak to know about this experience and I plan on writing reviews wherever I can find."
Cons: "United airlines plane from SLC to SFO departed 45 minutes late due to maintenance issue. Then the connecting flight from SFO to Bakersfield left 10 minutes early, thus resulting in a small group missing the connection. Spent Father's Day in the airport for 10+ hours to get on the last flight out of SFO to Bakersfield. Customer service was unhelpful and rude until they found out that the issue was at the fault of united Airlines and not external circumstances."
Pros: "Most of the crew was great."
Cons: "One of cabin stewards was a total jerk."
