Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

No different than what retailers do to their suppliers when supplier is late delivering merchandis"

Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Cons: "More flight delays..."
Cons: "1. Weather was bad and airlines knew it without sending out caution email or text messages early to passengers like Delta so that passengers can prepare for coming situation, either re routing flight or mental prepare for flight delay 2. Poor coordination - called to change flight and got confirmation via phone only found out in ticket counter that was not valid. 3. Luggage counter was bad, giving wrong picking luggage location caused two hour waiting in airport for nothing."

Cons: "Worst seats ever. Very delayed. No entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Really bumpy"
Cons: "We were downgraded from Main Cabin Extra rows 7 and 8 to row 30. We were told that we will get refund automatically. However, we received nothing. Getting a refund back is now becomes a very complicated process with zero transparency. Main Cabin Extra is kind of a scam. We bought it specifically for an extra leg room. However, on the flight from PHX to BOS, all seats in the economy class have the same leg room. The agent explicitly told us that on this plane all seats are the same. So, they offer product they do not have and collect money. Sounds like a scam to me."
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing special. Horrible food (the worst in years). Cabin crew try to manage but a refurbished plane doesn't justify more than double for a substandard bussines class."
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: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
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: "The flights were smooth and easy."
Cons: "Due to the crew being late, my second flight was delayed and hour and a half."
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: "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."
Pros: "Horrendous experience. 6 hours on the tarmac, followed by a another 7 hour delay. I missed my connecting flight in Sao Paolo - had to spend another $1300 to get to my final destination"

Pros: "flying in and out of COU is the best"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, courteous, and nice"

Cons: "Gate not ready on arrival."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seats felt a bit too cramped."
Cons: "Check-in process took nearly two hours because of other flight cancellations. Very chaotic process. Seat on plane was not very comfortable and arm rest was broken. However, flight went smoothly with an early arrival. Very good flight attendants and good food."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Cons: "Everything! Arrived 5 hours latter than expected"
Pros: "Did not really like it."
Cons: "More communication from the boarding staff. The delays kept increasing. Due to weather, we were delayed 4 hrs. They only decided to accommodate everyone with water and snacks 3 hrs into the 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: "All other stuff good"
Cons: "No music options for entertainment"
Pros: "Easy boarding and finding seat; good food and liked that wine was available, good movies to choose from"
Cons: "Seat was not comfortable, I am 5'1" and the head rest was too high, fortunately I had my own foam neck support. Bathrooms could use more cleaning during flight as one was grossly covered with urine right after turbulence was experienced. One crew member appeared to be having a bad day and seemed unhappy to be at work and was impatient with all."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Endless delays on top of delays."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day"
Pros: "plane is new/crew was friendly"
Cons: "no legroom/food was horrible; worst ever on any flight I have taken to and from korea. Worst"
Pros: "good seating. I am 6'5" and i was pretty comfortable"
Pros: "Flight was on time and efficient"
Cons: "Flight attendants always behave as if they barely have enough patience for you with your silly needs and requests. They border on being rude. This is not just this flight- but a signature of United. Maybe it is time to stop staffing international flights based on seniority, and let someone with more passion for customers come in, or swap staff with Singapore airlines."
Pros: "Nothing!!! Just a bab company that is just driven by money."
Cons: "No compassion from this company."
Cons: "United just did not do it for us on either end of the trip. Miscommunication and 3 hour delays on this flight before we could board. The poor girl at the front desk had to take verbal abuse because the higher ups don't give her any truthful information t work with. Terrible."
Pros: "Just arriving safe, otherwise Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service is very poor"
Pros: "Liked that it wasn’t the smallest regional jet that flies to Springfield"
Cons: "There was a delay because inbound plane was late. Didn’t like that jetway was very cold when we were waiting for our gate checked luggage. My gloves and hat were in the gate checked luggage."

Cons: "All was great!"

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: "Love the entertainment with Direct TV, worked great"
Cons: "More food options please. Also wifi didn't work at all during flight."
Cons: "Lost baggage"
Pros: "We were delayed due to some maintenance issues, but the crew did a great job of keeping us updated on what was happening. Other than that, a normal flight."
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: "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: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
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: "Flight was delayed not enough information. Missed connection."
Pros: "Length of flight."
Cons: "We were kept in the airport for hours on end without being informed our flight was cancelled. Something was wrong with the plane and then by the time it was fixed the crew had times out. We were given no information, the delays just kept increasing and increasing. We had to fly out the following morning which made things very inconvenient for getting rides from the airport and getting to work on time."
Pros: "On time"
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: "Rude staff, delay flights, and late flights."
Cons: "Waited too long to land"
Cons: "I got to the airport 40 minutes early. The flight was out at 6:20, I was there by 5:40. They did not let me print out a boarding pass. I could see the gate from the security line and the security line was EMPTY. There was no reason for them not to let me get on the plane, but they ended up scheduling me for a flight to Denver with the connecting flight in the morning- delaying my trip 24 hrs and charging me an extra 125$!!! I ended up paying an extra 85$ to American and was able to get to PHX that afternoon! The ladies at United were straight up RUDE too. When I told the lady at the counter my name she rolled her eyes."
Cons: "No food, was very warm, no movies unless you use your credit card."
