Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Armrests were broken. No outlets or USB ports to charge."
Cons: "Boarding process"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "AA seats are very small and narrow. The reclining part was uncomfortable. I prefer legroom and comfort at Delta Airlines."
Cons: "Paid for seats so I could sit with my guy - still had zero leg room. Generally disappointed with the state of air travel in the US - feels like we're being herded like cattle. Would like to vote with my dollars to help airlines that value customers and aren't trying to pinch pennies/nickel & dime us"
Pros: "everything was good"
Cons: "I’m not sure"
Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "The atención"
Pros: "Exactly on schedule."
Pros: "Thankfully they gave out ear buds on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was over booked, at the point of boarding there was no room left on the flight for any carry on’s so they wanted everyone to check bags one particular lady at the gate snatched my husbands boarding pass out of his had and threw it back at him so it landed on the floor. She came back with a checked bag ticket, this bag could have fit under the seat. We would have preferred not to check the bag because it had everything in it we needed access to like medication, ear buds, book, tablet, it also contained my Jewlery and various other things. The lady was extremely rude when I told her I prefer not to check the bag, she said we could take everything out of the bag we needed but that would have been 70 % of what was in the bag, where was I supposed to put all this stuff? My small purse was already full. my husband was upset at her treatment and said something to her and she told us we where welcome to book another flight. I paid a hell of a lot of money on this flight alone plus upgraded our seats with extra legroom. Once on the plane the seating was so crammed, uncomfortable and no legroom. My seat reclined but my husbands did not. I will never fly American Airlines again."

Pros: "New Plane interior"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was delightful. Nothing special with a flight, as long as its was on time."
Cons: "flight was delayed two hours because they couldn't find a single American airlines employee to sign off on some log book.sat on tarmac two hours because no one could sign a piece of paper!!! so obviously we missed our connecting international flight to dublin. called american customer svc, they made us call british airways, british airways said we had to call kayak, kayak said we had to call American. thanks for all the great customer svc. this is why everyone hates flying and all airlines are garbage. then finally in chicago american customer svc desk said they rebooked us on a British airways flight the same night, we traversed (ran) the entire chicago ohare airport only to find out british airways said we were not on that flight, were completely full and we had to go back to american. literally had to leave airport to get on train to go back to american terminal. they swear we are now (the next day) on this aer lingus flight despite our inability since last night to try and check in to that flight because aer lingus website doesnt work, no one answers their customer service number and their ticket counter at airport doesnt open until noon. suffice it to say we are still not on a flight to Dublin, ive missed an entire day of a limited vacation, and i will NEVER fly american again."
Cons: "Waited one hour on runway after landing for plane to be towed prior to getting off the plane. This was made worse surrounded by unruly children that no one made an effort to control."
Pros: "the crew was excellent .... cudos to the flight attendant ... she was both kind and sensitive to our needs."
Cons: "Boarding the plane in DC was less than desirable ... a bus took us to the plane"
Pros: "American reminded me why I always chose to fly with them and not other airlines. Kind fly crew, prompt notifications, Mobile Boarding Passes, quick check-in process and more. I loved it!"
Pros: "No big crowds trying to board. Everyone had room for their items in the over head. Love the one seat by itself. Very short flight but the one steward still served beverages and cookies."
Pros: "They were gracious and courteous, the flight attendants. Very nice people."
Cons: "The last seat empty thing was weird but im sure that has to do with some new regulations or something and not the airline itself."
Cons: "Terrible lead flight attendant"
Pros: "The pilot was great. Avoided turbulence and arrived about 20min early. Easy to find seat and stow bag. Smooth takeoff and landing."

Cons: "Too cramped."
Pros: "Delayed and no AC working..."
Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."
Cons: "My flight back home was cancelled without any notice and so we had to spend an extra night. The flight the next day went without a hitch, so it sort of made up for it."
Cons: "the fly got delayed for more than 3 hours."
Pros: "Same as first flight."
Pros: "I had a weapon to check and found that one of the case locks had been broken. With only minutes to spare a Huntsville TSA bag checker donated a personal padlock so I could make my flight. 5 stars."
Cons: "Monotonal flight orientation. Follow a Southwest Airlines model and add some vigor!"
Pros: "The plane landed on time."
Cons: "Beverage are limited, one of the crews was loud, the food was terrible. I made a reservation through japan airlines. If they do a codeshare, they should give the passengers equal advice."

Cons: "Got food and drinks and beer at nomadditional cost"
Pros: "Was really good flight"
Pros: "Nothing really. I feel for the crew. The space is so small and confining there is no room to work or move around"
Cons: "We thought we would get some decent amenities with a name brand carrier but American has basically become like Spirit or Frontier. International travel used to be exempt from impossibly small seats, lack of in flight entertainment and terribly overmatched crew members scurrying to try and complete their duties. Terrible. But the good news is if you pay an extra fee they will let you get on the plane first. More time to be miserable! Hoorah!!"
Pros: "On time, courteous flight crew, and a smooth flight"
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Cons: "delayed so long we missed our connection"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost 2 hours and when I went to ask the lady at the kiosk a question I was basically told to go sit doWn and be quiet"
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."
Cons: "The 5 hour flight was extremely full. No chance of social distancing. Did not feel safe for my family."
Pros: "Best Airline."
Cons: "Nothing, flights are always great in my experience with United."
Pros: "Economy plus was quite comfortable."
Cons: "The storage space would have been woefully inadequate if the flight was full."
Pros: "Small plane ,comfortable seats,"
Cons: "Plugs would be nice. Food isn’t great and drinks are more expensive than other airlines"
Pros: "There was not much."
Cons: "The flight attendants made you feel rushed and that we were a bother. The volume on the overhead speaker was considerably high, especially for a late night flight; each time they spoke it startled you and sounded as if they were yelling into the microphone. They treated us rudely."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Pros: "Good crew, good and safe flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "Long delay."
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: "We were 2 min late for check in and the agent got our bags and got them on the plane"
Pros: "One of the stewardess was very kind"
Cons: "The longer leg from US to Frankfurt was very difficult to sleep in because the mid cabin section light was not turned off"
Pros: "Gate attendant downstairs at departure door was very nice, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "I had to rush across the airport to another terminal in order to not miss my flight. Gate attendant at upstairs desk could have been more helpful. The flight attendant appeared to be tired and not so patient. Could have asked the people who had not turned off electronic devices to do so individually instead of threatening to stall take off over the intercom."
Pros: "Great crew"
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: "It was excellent all way) thank you."
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Getting home safely!!"
Pros: "Check in, arrive ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No entertiment, no snack only little bag of pretzels"
Pros: "Aircraft was very nice...seats good, clean"
Cons: "Way too hot on the plane, Service was poor. No wifi working. many people had to go to desk...seat assignments stamped see at gate."
Cons: "We were delayed by more than 6 hours."
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Cons: "No assistance what so ever. Flight was cancelled. No refund, no room, no help. Had to rent a car $300. Next available flight 24 hours later."
Pros: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"
Cons: "We didn't have seats assigned and the gate attendent didn't take the time to tell any of the 20 of us waiting for 15-20 mins to speak to a gate agent what was going on until AFTER she boarded the rest of the plane. When asked what was going on she responded "excuse me, I'll get to you when I get to you and thanks for your 'non attitude'" to the woman who asked her if she had any plans to greet us or even ackwnowledge us. Then the flight attendants became flustered as they realized they separated a 5 year old child and his father and sat the child in the emergency seat. When several of us attempted to help they were rude so when I put my headphones in to pass the time and didn't hear the woman ask if I was willing to sit in the emergency isle she snidely said "there's always one millenial not paying attention." Ummm.... I had my eyes closed and was listening to my music since they clearly wanted us to mind our own business and NOT try to help the father (meanwhile all of us strangers were trying to figure out how to rearrange in order to help). The only reason entertainment gets a 2 is bc I had good conversation with the passenger next to me, not because of anything United did. Really unbelievable that they continue to operate this way and treat PAYING customers like this. It's sad actually."
Pros: "We got there safely with our stuff."
Cons: "The stupid led by the unwilling."
Pros: "I like watching "Hacksaw Ridge" on the flight."
Cons: "I was only offered a cookie, no snack mix. Not a big deal. The landing was terrifying. The winds must've been bad?"
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: "We flew business class and slept most of the way in very comfortable environment"
Cons: "The cabin crew insisted that we had to claim our baggage in Houston and go thru customs with it. THEY WERE WRONG! . we wasted 15 mins for luggage that we then found out did not need to be picked up as it was routed direct to Vancouver. This almost made us miss our next flight and caused us a lot of stress. We had specifically asked the crew to check as we thought it was ticketed to Vancouver but they insisted WE WERE WRONG"
Cons: "I chose Luthansa because I was traveling with a bike and they are usually good about not overcharging however after booking the flight, United took over the flight and they have very unfriendly bike policies (200 each way). Usually I will not fly United because of these policies, I think I am done flying any Star Alliance companies."
Pros: "Horrible check in process. Arrived 2-1/2 hours before flight, and spent the entire time in line waiting to check in. Was very chaotic and extremely frustrating. The staff were great, and thanks to their help we surprisingly didn't miss our flight. I cannot stress enough how awful this experience was."
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."
Pros: "Nothing, as you sent this prematurely and my flight hasn't even left yet and was delayed by more than two hours."
Cons: "Being told we could stretch our legs and leave the plane, only to be told a minute later "never mind" because it should be "just a few minutes". That was an hour ago."
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."
Pros: "The assistance given to me"
Pros: "Landed on time."
Cons: "Cramped seats."
Pros: "The boarding made it so much easier for me."
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours, lack of communication regarding delays even after airplane arrived, seats were uncomfortable and lacked room."
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."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Good communication and polite."
Pros: "Crew was polite."
Cons: "United can't get anywhere on time. It was a beautiful day no weather issues and we were still 30 minutes late. This is the 7 th time this summer there have been issues with united out of Bangor or Portland. I'm going to always take jet blue in the future."
Cons: "I couldn't move up to an empty row on a half empty plane"
Pros: "New clean plane, nice staff,"
Cons: "The seats literally only reclined half an inch on a 2 1/2 hour flight at 1:15am..that's evil"
Cons: "Flight was delayed not enough information. Missed connection."
Pros: "The plane was clean, flight was smoothe, cost was good."
Cons: "Made me check my carry on because they stated there was no room which was not the case when I walked on ( found at least 6 spots). I requested to at least be able to look for myself seeing as how my seat was in the very back, but they refused. Also, allowed many customers to store their personal bag ( their backpack) in the bins that were oversized which should have counted as their carry on, just allowed them because they wanted to. They should have made those individuals check their "carry on". Also limited snacks available by the time they were able to provide service to my area of the plane."
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."
Cons: "Cat meowing loudly in seat in front of us"
