Pros: "Crew was amazing, very helpful and nice!"
Cons: "The touch screen for the entertainment didn't work so I wasn't able to watch or so anything"
Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and quick with service."
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment! This is ridiculous for an overnight, international flight."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Flight was 90 minutes late leaving Manchester so J missed my connection in Philadelphia! After a rebooking I was put on a flight to LA but that flight was also late and delayed getting to the gate in LA so I missed the flight to Seattle"
Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"
Pros: "Pleasant and attentive crew"
Pros: "Trip went smoothly"
Pros: "Service was wonderful and flight pretty much smooth for the 6;5 hour ride back to Seattle. I do enjoy taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Had a 350 pound gentleman in the seat in front of me and had he had no idea of how stressed I was when he would try to adjust his to go back further."
Pros: "Early arrival and free upgrade!"
Pros: "Getting from A to be safely"
Cons: "Being so delayed that we had to sprint to make our connection flight. Starting a transatlantic flight with sweaty armpits is never fun for anyone involved, us or our seat neighbor"
Cons: "I purchased a WiFi pass and the WiFi did not work. Since the airplane does not have individual TV’s on each seat, it makes it for a very long flight. I also did not like that the passengers had to take a bus to the airplane and we’re shoved like sardines in a can in 95 degree weather."
Cons: "Flight to and from AL on American Airlines were both canceled - I was switched to Delta on the ‘to’ trip and stuck in AL another night on ‘home’ trip"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled with zero notice and I almost ended up on a 18 hour layover which would have resulted me in missing work. The staff was very unsympathetic and not helpful. There were 10 people behind the counter and nobody could help us. They were all just spacing out. Ultimately, I was placed on the flight, but had to rush to every single one of my four connecting flights. I am a frequent traveler but this is by far the worst experience I’ve ever had. Avianca should be embarrassed to be associated with star alliances."
Pros: "Nothing to complain about!"
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."
Pros: "I like the ability to stream movies and TV to my device. The seating was also comfortable the head rests are a lifesaver."
Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "A bit bumpy!"
Cons: "Seating is a bit cramped."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Plane malfunction resulted in delay, and missed connection. Rebooked connection flight was canceled. Now in day 2 of eaitingto get home."
Pros: "The flight was a quick 39 minutes from Chicago, the staff was friendly. Good flight."
Cons: "It's snowing!"
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant and helpful. Baggage was broken but replaced with new one in Philadelphia."
Cons: "No entertainment options at all in this flight - system was down."
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Pros: "Professionalism and all time smile of the crew"
Cons: "That there is not TV in the plane"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"
Cons: "Flight was extensively delayed and had to remain inside the plane."
Cons: "Flight left 4 hours late"
Cons: "Aircraft old, crew with bad manners, uncomfortable seats with almost no reclining, little food with poor choices especially for breakfast, entertainment extremely poor."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then extended by 2 hours due to weather."
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "The plane for the flight Miami to Paris was very old plane, hugly and video system in the plane didn't work properly. About the food ? it was simply non acceptable About the return flight AA63 it was scheduled for a departure at 10:50 AM and we leave at 2:40 PM ?"
Pros: "Why did they have everyone board and then decide we needed to wait? Uncomfortable and frustrating."
Cons: "Why did they have everyone board and then decide we needed to wait? Uncomfortable and frustrating."
Pros: "The plane was new on the interior and comfortable."
Pros: "Scenery is awesome: various mountains, including snowy peaks, up close. Great views of Lima and Cusco from high above."

Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Pros: "Crew was fun. Didn't get to finish movie because no wifi from den to mtj"
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Pros: "lousy crew"
Pros: "It’s actually United airline in service. The first flight from Brussels to Washington, everything was great! The crews were amazing, food was surprisingly good. The flight from Washington to Los Angeles was extremely terrible, crews were rude and impatient. Service is like budgeted airlines."
Cons: "More comparable service throughout the journey."
Cons: "We could have made our connecting flight. And then our"
Pros: "The help"
Pros: "I’m thankful for the non-stop route between Raleigh and San Francisco. I think I’m being disrespected by the Econ Plus fee of $92 for what??— 6 more inches of legroom?? There’s no way to make a 6-7 hour flight enjoyable beyond first class, so there you go..."
Cons: "No gluten-free snacks. For some of us, it’s not just a trendy fad but an actual allergy with severe consequences."
Pros: "T was an OK flight, not bad by economy standards. 10 1/2 hours to be endured."
Cons: "Well, I did not like that I had booked Lufthansa, an airline I like to fly, but it was really a United flight. The Lufthansa booking included the first checked bag as free. This information did not reach United and I was faced with a £45 fee for the bag! Not a pleasant surprise and I would like the money back. I would also like to make sure that the return trip does not cost me another £45!"
Pros: "Fast easy"
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Cons: "Delayed flights leading to incredibly tight connection times, staff inconsistent with messaging re the source of the delay, zero compassion for customers, offering $700-$1,400 to get off the plane when you charge $200 to change a flight 2 weeks in advance is especially galling! Will not fly with United again whenever there is a viable alternative to my destination."
Pros: "The best thing about my flight was that it was really empty so I was able to change to a better seat. Everything was quick and easy."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "One hour on tarmac."
Cons: "Have the seats and leg room gotten even smaller on the 767 or is it me. Booked w SwissAir, got United quality instead"
Pros: "Crew very professional, plane clean, take off on time, flight landed safely (most important)"
Cons: "Dinner sort of goopy."
Cons: "Continuously moving departure time back."
Pros: "Least expensive and quickest trip"
Cons: "Not always available on return trip"
Cons: "That you had to pay to watch anything"
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Pros: "We got my wife on a plane home in under four hours."
Cons: "United decided to bump some of their glorified bus drivers ahead of me on standby so I had to wait a full four hours in O'Hare listening to some doichebag from LA try to entertain folks at the Goose Island bar with his stories about selling franchises."
Pros: "Nothing was positive"
Cons: "Whole experience was terrible"
Pros: "Stewardesses were nice"
Cons: "Captain did not show. Had to wait 45 minutes for a new crew!"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "My flight from MIA to DIA was delayed two hours due to not having a crew. Not sure how that happened, but it was very disorganized. Crew issues happen, but what happened with entertainment? Three days earlier when flying to MIA, my United app had a great, large movie selection, so I picked one movie to watch and thought I would save the movie I really wanted to watch for my return flight. However, my return/very delayed flight had two movie options. It's the united app, why did one day have 50 movies and the second flight have two?? Shouldnt it be the same across the board? My best friends wedding and Night at the Museum 3 are not good options of entertainment."
Pros: "The flight was short and left on time."
Cons: "The same problem as with the other flight: no headrest tabs and not much leg room."
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Cons: "Left my Kindle on the plane. It has yet to be returned/found."
Pros: "Good crew, smooth flying, on-time"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable!"
Cons: "Fully loaded with passengers, had to burn off extra fuel to compensate. Not an inconvenience, just unexpected. Otherwise, no complaints."
Pros: "Boarding was a bit crowded and hectic. The food was good as was the service. We had tons of entertainment options."
Cons: "Checking in in Amsterdam was a nightmare. Long lines everywhere. They can't handle the volume of passengers efficiently"
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic"
Cons: "I really didn't like how the TVs were running to make you think you could watch whatever you want but then you had to pay. No one is going to pay for such a short flight, it would be really nice to offer it for free."
Pros: "When I landed in Denver, I needed a wheelchair. The gate where I landed was a LONG way from the gate where I needed to board for my flight to Billings. The person wheeling me didn't think we'd make it to my gate on time----she practically had to run!! As we passed an agent, she asked if they'd call ahead to let them know I was coming. The agent told her they wouldn't hold the plane for me if we didn't make it. I don't know if they did, but I was the last person to board. Thank God!!!!"
Cons: "The person wheeling me to my gate to Billings couldn't find anyone on a cart who get me to my gate faster & on time. I feel that more of them should be available to those of us who need to go such a long distance to our next gate. We barely made it in my wheelchair and had I had to walk that distance, I NEVER would have made my flight to Billings. Also, agents should be able to contact a gate to let them know that a person is having difficulty getting to their next gate!!!"
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Cons: "I spent 4 hours waiting for a connecting flight the scheduled wait was 45 min"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Our plane was delayed three hours, which put us in Billing at 12:30am. We also had four different gates in Denver and kept having to move up and down the B-concourse. Huge rodeo."
Pros: "Getting off"
Pros: "The flight crew apologized and kept everyone informed."
Cons: "The plane was having mechanical problems. Once it was determined that the problem couldn't be fixed it took the airline quite some time to locate a new plane. They should have started working to identify a new plane sooner. Ended up arriving in Portland after 3 am."
Cons: "To small uncomfortable"
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Pros: "Small plane completely booked."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Cons: "There were empty seats on this flight but the crew would not let me move to a different seat to be more comfortable."
Pros: "price was great for new years day."
Cons: "flight was delayed due to a late flight attendant and then delayed again because they flight attendant didn't know about her destinations and thrn delayed again so she could prepare for her upcoming trips. This was all announced on the PA system. In total, the flight was delayed about an hour and 20 minutes."
