Cons: "The seats are tight. but hey its an airplane, what can i expect!"
Cons: "I used 7900 points to upgrade to “comfort” and nothing about it was comfortable. I was squashed between a window and a large man and my tv screen kept flickering on and off. I actually felt like I had less space overall than I would have in a regular seat."

Cons: "They did not have a “gate available” for our arrival so we have been waiting in the plain on the tarmac for over fourty minutes and still waiting. This is ridiculous. We purchase tickets at delta for a plain that had a departure and arrival gate. This should not be happening"
Pros: "The Delta flight crew was exceptional!! Friendly and accommodating."
Pros: "The attention to detail from the crew, and the friendliness"
Cons: "Plane was so small I couldn’t even put my backpack in overhead and nobody told me to check it even when I asked"

Pros: "The flight was on time. Airport personnel were courteous & efficient. Airplane was clean. Pilot was friendly. A passenger had a peanut allergy so Delta distributed almonds, instead. Nice. Overall, I like Delta."
Cons: "Leg room was just barely adequate. It was a small plane-nothing could be done about that."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "In SLC they boarded by row numbers and not zones. Weird..."
Cons: "Mechanical repair on nose wheel"
Pros: "I don’t know what Delta could have done better on this two leg flight from Albuqueque to Miami via Atlanta . Yes we were in First Class and it was a (groan) 6:05 AM flight which meant that we were probably on time. But Delta’s 737-900 (to Atlanta) was very comfortable, the crew did everything well and the breakfast was quite good. (Make sure you try the quiche). We had the same crew on the next leg to Miam, who were surprised and gave us a warm welcome. There were only snacks in 1st for that short segment, but they were all we wanted."
Cons: "Air turbulence over the Midwest storms."
Pros: "The service was exelente"
Pros: "Itwas fast and easy."
Cons: "Nothing. Everyrhing was good."

Cons: "Booked my flight and paid to pick my seats. Did not end up getting the seats I booked. Boarding and departing was extremely slow."
Pros: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Cons: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."
Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "Movie helped to pass the time this was the longest flight ever I was glad when it was over"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The boarding process in Atlanta was as smooth as could be expected given that it was a full flight. I appreciated the gate announcer's suggestions to everyone about how to ease the overhead baggage crunch."
Cons: "Economy is very tight quarters."
Pros: "Very nice, comfortable plane, everything went smoothly in spite of our little airport being overrun with eclipse tourists."
Cons: "We paid extra to be able to pick our seat ahead of time but when we got there we were told that in the first leg of our trip the flight was oversold and therefore we didn't have seat assignments anymore. The delta folks blamed Kayak. We did get seat together, but not the ones I had previously chosen. Also there was no beverage service on this flight."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats are too close together."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment and the pilot being informative about what was going wrong at the Atlanta airport."
Cons: "The insane process that followed the flight of rebooking - it would have been VERY HELPFUL to have access to the inflight internet so that I could have rebooked my missed connection before we landed in the ATL airport where it was past midnight and there were hardly any staff available for us to talk to and the lines to speak to anyone took literal HOURS to get through."
Cons: "small aisles and space in the seats. me and my wife were seated"
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "I'm not sure if this staff is exhausted or just over there job, but they cow towed to a woman who made major complaints about the air conditioning and even gave her points to help her deal with the temperature. Strange. They were only gold stays and I'm only Platinum and didn't complain once. Oh well, that's delta, we all deal with their silence when we post anything that is unfair."
Pros: "Well after going through a terrible storm to get to the airport we were given a opportunity to up grade to First Class for a very reasonable rate. That was great."
Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."
Pros: "El tiempo de llegada, aterrizamos 40 min antes de lo esperado"
Cons: "Deben poner a los pasajeros que son impertinentes juntos"
Cons: "American is poorly prepared for day long delays."
Cons: "No food or beverage service during covid-19"
Cons: "The 1st flight that I have not been cold for the entire flight. The attendants were very good and professional and kind. The Movie selection I felt did not have enough variety. The movies all seemed to be rated R or they were child type movies. Nothing much in between."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Nothing. It was smooth and efficient."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seating even though paid for preferred. Not enough space for carry on."
Cons: "Crew service"
Pros: "My flight attendant always smiled and was very hospitable."
Cons: "Its okay"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent"
Cons: "Great service always"
Pros: "Loved getting pretzels and pop. Loved having movie options. Didn’t love the delay."
Cons: "If the seat hadn’t broken and delayed our flight by 20 minutes"
Pros: "Seating, nice personnel"
Cons: "Long layover in Chicago"
Pros: "The announcements were clear and the captain did not mumble! Not sure what happened at the airport but we had issues with ground crew not coming to help park us. The captain made sure we were informed and it didn’t really add to much to our time."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent. Communication from the flight deck was good as well"
Pros: "Leaving on time"
Cons: "Snack selection could have been better. Gluten free options."
Pros: "The ground personal and flight crews did everything they could do make up for the delays."
Cons: "The numerous delays The small aircraft with overhead bins that couldn't handle what I always carry on normal airplanes. The plane didn't have entertainment Missing plug ins that most airplanes have today."
Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom in first class"
Cons: "Expected more than cookies for food in first class."
Pros: "by airlines"
Cons: "flying next day trough LAX"
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."
Pros: "Horrible landing. Also-landed early and srive around for 20 min with no announcement from cockpit"
Cons: "3 hours late leaving Dublin, with poor communicstion on the monitors as to gate info. not to mention the lateness."
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "Food - What can I say about pretzels except "Okay"?!"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Cons: "I have never been treated as poorly as I was by the old biddy that physically took the guitar out of my hands as I was trying to board the plane today. I travel as a professional musician at least once a week and I’ve never been threatened with arrest for having an instrument on my person."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Pros: "crew friendly"
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "The information that was given was awful. Why would AA send a broken plane to ABW?"
Pros: "Nice people to fly with"
Pros: "everything fine"
Cons: "having to gate-check our hand luggage"
Pros: "Great staff. Arrived very early. Smooth flight ."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They should have someone packing your duty free if they are going to make you check it. My duty free expensive wine broke and I am not too happy. After 2 long flights, time change, and minimal materials to work with I have to box and check my duty free in. Not co"
Cons: "short flight herded like cattle. not much about it"
Cons: "The information of code share was not clear..so I was expected to fly with JAL..."
Pros: "Almost on time"
Cons: "Boarding process, PA system volume very low at PHX"
Pros: "Met expectations. Landed early."
Cons: "Seats harder than expected"
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Cons: "Delayed because of cleaning crew showing up late.... Totally avoidable. Gate crew was not helpful"
Pros: "After I pledged 25 years ago I would not travel with AA, this recent trip to Miami was delayed 30 minutes going to Miami and one hour goin back to Panama."
Cons: "Ticket counter very long in Miami. Kiosk did not work. Flight delayed in both routes."
Pros: "Customer service at American Airlines was amazingly good. They figured out the mess that the third party agent, WEBJET.COM made and fixed it."
Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."
Pros: "Remodeled plane style"
Cons: "Liked it"
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Complainers. Shame on the parents who raised such pretentious a--holes."
Cons: "Boarding took forever and I'm a Premium passenger."
Pros: "On time, upgraded at Dallas"
Cons: "Couldn't get my boarding pass. My name was wrong in your system, had to go to American Airlines desk for assistance and the attendant couldn't locate my name. There was a service attendant at the Alaskan airline service desk."
Pros: "The stewardess was nice enough to give me water with my gingerale"
Cons: "We didn't take off until 3 hours after scheduled, and we're forced to watch ads on the overhead monitors for most of the flight. I was not impressed. Poor communication from the pilot."
Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour. Because of that, I missed my appointment."
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Late take off with no explanation No on board entertainment Other isle we sat in was even more cramped than the others."
Cons: "It turns out that this flight was delayed, so I would have missed my connections. Huge thanks to the gate agent from United who rebooked me to San Francisco and from there to Frankfurt and then Prague."
Pros: "Nothing very bad experience, the staff very nasty !!"
Cons: "My flight had a big the delay, and they didn't really help us with flight connection they we us hartzell time . Also one is my suitcase did come on time . The seat were very bad for economic class . I WON'T EVER FLIGHT FROM UNITED AIRLINES!!! I ALWAYS TRAVEL THIS MY FRIST TIME USING THIS AIRLINE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "It was a stressful experience, arriving late for ur connection flight and find out u cant get to ur destination. I would say that they did compliment us with a very nice hotel so i apologize for the bad review i understand u cant do anything about the weather but was amazed with the hotel"
Pros: "United staff were ready in Panamá to handle the missed connections, with onward booking already handled and hotel vouchers ready for distribution upon deplaning."
Cons: "Late boarding and long wait on runway to be able to take off, thus ensuring connection in Panamá would be missed. Given that one runway was closed due to wind, this is something outside the control of United. Nevertheless, allowing a connecting flight with only 30 minutes between flights would seem to be overly risky, thus any delay upon departure will ensure a missed connection."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Amazes me how the airlines can shrink legroom. I'm 6'5" & had an economy middle row middle seat. Needsless to say, I was stuck actually & figuratively since it was a full flight."
Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."
Pros: "crew friendly, talked to us, made sure we had everything we needed for a good flight"
Cons: "Took off late due to weather"
Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."
Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy, repeated same commercials"
Cons: "Customer service"
Cons: "Terrible experience. Will avoid united at all costs. We arrived with enough time and called ahead. They said to run and the plane would still be there however at the kiosk, the personell was very unhelpful. They made us miss our flight, fly out the next day and didn't now help change our return flight to the next day. I called united, the booking agency and the other airline without getting any changes."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Cons: "45 minute delay due to passenger self-injury, then turned around half-way across the Atlantic due to another passenger medic."

Cons: "El peor servicio que he recibido"
Cons: "2hrs late"
Pros: "I had an entire row to myself."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Water only"
Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."
Pros: "All the United personnel from gate agents to pilot and crew were very nice and pleasant and friendly. They seemed to take pride in their work."
Cons: "I am tall (6' 4") and the seats are still too cramped. Would a 1/2" more really lose millions of dollars per year. Stop treating people like sardines."
Pros: "It was indeed good experience."
Pros: "We departed on time and arrived at least half an hour early."
Cons: "The seats lacked those tabs on the side of the headrest that fold forward to help hold your head while sleeping and little leg room."

Cons: "- There wasn't space for my bag to go overhead - There were no options for food or entertainment - My seat was very cramped"
Pros: "On time, ahead of schedule"
Pros: "Biggest hassle of many flights these days is dealing with on board luggage. If people insist on bring all luggage into the cabin, they should be required to have one piece under the seat and only one overhead."
Cons: "Drives me nuts to find there is no gate available when we arrive."
Cons: "paid entertainment"
Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "on a 5,5 hour flight only drinks and no food, NOT OKEY - entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."
Pros: "I liked the staff and comfort the most"
Cons: "I mean is not anybodys fault but its lame that now everything has to be paid, from entertainment to food and all of that!"
Cons: "Was good"
Pros: "Quick flight back home, crew understood my needs of having to move 18 days from acl replacement surgery."
Cons: "The pilots were late which cost us our departure so that we ran into restrictions based on weather. Thus we missed our connection in Panama City. United should ensure pilots are on time."
Pros: "great staff"
