Then they boarded us on the plane, let us know it was delayed 1.5 hours, then back onto the plane at that time, then waited another 1.5 hours to leave. Unacceptable. I missed my work meeting from this."

Cons: "Got there safe!"
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Cons: "It took entirely too long to board the plane. Then there were ‘mechanical issues’ that needed dealt with. Well, don’t have everyone sit on the plane for 60 minutes. Don’t continuously state ‘it’ll be fifteen minutes.’ Just give straight answers"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Seats were narrow"
Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "Right after boarding Zone 5, the crew called for Zone 6, and everyone rushed the line. Zone 5 had not yet completed boarding."
Cons: "While Delta are stepping up their snack & refreshment options, American seems to be joining the downhill slide group. If you don't like dry pretzels... choose another airline. Also had that wonderful experience of learning after boarding that you need to have downloaded the app to be able to reach any entertainment options. And, nowhere to plug the device to keep it alive. I didn't realise that AA was competing with the budget airlines like Rouge now..."
Pros: "The crew for the most part was nice."
Cons: "It just wasn't a comfortable flight and then a extremely bumpy ride all the way from LA to NYC."
Cons: "Boarding complete chaos. Looked like Bangladesh. Very unorganized. No airline has ever explained why they do not board from the window seat out. Would reduce much confusion. Too much to handle."

Pros: "Good preferred seat."

Cons: "Late arrival."
Cons: "Being led to pay to select seats on flight that was only 50% full"
Pros: "The flight was a great experience opposed to other airlines (frontier).I would definitely choose american airlines next time i fly."

Cons: "They forgot to get my coffee but it's nothing major plus we were about to land in 30 mins or so"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours, gate changed, no free food"
Pros: "Was about an average flight for domestic travel."
Cons: "Leg room on flight wasn't the greatest and seat recline also slides the bottom of the seat forward."
Pros: "It was easy checking in and getting boarding pass online. OMG"
Cons: "OMG. Horrible experience. The 8:20 am flight didn't leave 'til noon. There were several changes. We were moved to different gates FIVE TIMES!!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and then cancelled. We were given new flights the next day 8/20/16 and that was delayed for a few more hours. We wasted a day and a half at the airport and our hotel for the first night could not be refunded."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Family trip ruined because of the delay departure. And the airline is not able to do anything to make this situation better. The wait line is over an hour. Most ppl miss their flights. The crew member at the desk is very rude and doesn't have patience to explain my questions. Unsatisfied experience ever!"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Late flight, they didn't update the board at all. Forced me to check my carry on luggage because they didn't do their job correctly. Overall terrible service, will avoid AA in the future."
Cons: "Media entertainment selection"
Pros: "The crew was ok, it felt like we were getting as little information as possible from either the flight attendants and the captain. The seats were horrible and honestly this will be my last flight with United."
Cons: "Having the crew care and go through what to expect during the flight. United has the worst seats I’ve been on the plain had an insane and annoying rattle by the windows and the pilot could barley get through a sentence without stuttering or relaying wrong information."
Pros: "Friendly, quick and easy check in."
Pros: "Good entertainment section if you have your personal devices. Menu was better than most anymore (which isn’t saying much)."
Cons: "Attendants allowed drunk travelers to party and gather in the aisles. They were spilling drinks and yelling so loudly “talking” that you could hear them clearly over the engine noise AND headphones, and they kept serving them."
Pros: "Crew very professional and provided excellent service."
Cons: "Boarding process chaotic."
Pros: "Thank you for the number of refreshments including drinks and a snack. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The seat was so hard to get comfortable in. I’m only 5’9” but I kept getting bumped into as I was sitting in the aisle seat. Also my seat 23C’s headphone jack is broken - I had to play around with my headphone cable input to get enough contact to hear everything."
Cons: "Kayak app didn’t update the gate change. Luckily I receive a text from United that the flight was boarding."
Pros: "Nothing. At all."
Pros: "On time. Courteous and friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "A bit of turbulence at the beginning of the flight and the captain didn’t release the seatbelt sign for longer than I could! Sprint to the bathroom the minute the sign was released. Hallelujah!!"
Pros: "No surprises, boarding, friendly plane staff, carry on so didn’t have to worry about baggage issues , on-time"
Cons: "Pilots flying: the plane would turn or ascend/descend in such a way that I felt that I was going to pass out. I was not intoxlcated nor did i experience it on my previous flight nor the majority of this flight unless maneuvering was occurring. Also, again, worthless wifi"
Pros: "The staff was kind and flight was smooth"
Cons: "The plane was small and cramped. I could barely bend down to get my bag from under the seat in front of me and I'm tiny. I can just imagine how bigger people felt."
Cons: "Was a disaster we’re stuck at the airport for 3 1/2 hours delayed the flight.... gave us a vautcher for 10$ canadian by the time everything at the airport was closed for food. There were no space for our luggage. Spend 12 hours at airports from Victoria to Las Vegas."
Pros: "Great left ok time..."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour because no gate was available! I missed my connection by 5 min. When I asked if they could do something (hold the plane etc) since I had a connection they said, “Sir everyone has a connecting flight!” Like I was asking them to move mountains. Point is, United doesn’t care about their costumers. I see them going out of business soon. They have terrible costumer service. I missed the holidays with my family and had to buy a new plane ticket on a different airline because they could not reschedule me on time!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great crew. Enjoyed the random jokes."
Cons: "Long taxing"
Cons: "Seat was really hard and hurt to sit on after the first hour. Even had trouble sleeping it was so bad."
Pros: "It was a quick flight."
Cons: "The leg room in the plane. I know airliners want to put as many people in a flight as possible but for tall people no leg room is bad."
Cons: "The crew allowed an excessively foul smelling person on the plane who was obviously Intoxicated on some illicit drug and smelled so bad that it made the entire area unbearable."
Pros: "Staff was pleasant, decent movies overall."
Cons: "I can't eat mushrooms. Both meals had mushrooms (3 out of 4 entrees) and it wasn't always obvious which ones. Additionally, the second meal with seafood or pasta, the pasta obviously had mushrooms so I chose seafood, even though I don't like most seafood. Mushrooms all mixed in with the seafood, so I had to pick them all out. Also 2 of the accompanying sides had mushrooms. Do they have a mushroom fetish like Cheesecake Factory? Need more consideration for people who may have varying food requirements that are unavailable to address during the booking process. I know you can't please everyone, but why overuse an ingredient that has a relatively low appeal to potential passengers? Will try again, just hope they can use similar customer service in their food preparation as they have otherwise."
Pros: "We got let in first because we had a baby under 2. A stewardess felt bad for our seating at the end and gave us a free blanky for baby and a free shot for me."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hrs. The back seating was horrible. One crew member made fun of my sister for walking too slow on the way out. Like seriously we were the last seats on plane and had a baby. So yes we were slow!!!"
Pros: "The space in this seat I had, was awesome. The boarding crew was rather pleasant and I loved how my gate was right next to my next gate."
Cons: "The attitudes of the flight attendants on this particular flight; they seemed highly agitated, probably because they looked tired, but who knows? Their performance reflected their attitudes."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Got stuck with the last row of seats. I never previously had the last row for a flight but to be honest it was definitely the worst seats on the plane. What makes it worse was these were not tickets I bought last week but on united economy they only give you seat selection just days prior and no explanation as to why you are placed in a particular row. Stuck near the bathroom and the seats do not decline at all though they deceptively provide the button to recline your seats. Horrible experience and one more reason to not fly United."
Pros: "Crew was nice & limited free on board movies & TV were available but I forgot my headphones"
Cons: "Same pretzels & one cup of Coke for a 3 hour flight. Very Cheap!"
Cons: "We were an 1hr and 40mins late. It would have been ok but the pilot and crew did say why. United kept me informed by using text messages which were great. They had us sitting down and water could be given until the flights starts but 1 st class recieved all the accommodations which i unstand that is why you pay for 1st class. But honestly the crew could accommodate a class of water to a few passagers. The pilot didn't have to wait 40 mins to let us k now we were waiting on maintenance to sign off on their form. Some of the passage obeyed the rules by turning of our phone. I turn my phone back on when i heard a passager say maintance was required. I would say flight was good sits were smaller than last August"
Pros: "I know it's not the crews fault for the delay, but everything was just truly horrendous. I was a little hesitant to fly United after their scandal, but now I know that I should not have. After a 2+ hour delay, I had to pay $60 at the gate to check a CARRY-ON that I had already asked about at the baggage drop at the beginning of that dreadful day. They assured me that it would be no problem, and foolish me, I actually believed them, so instead of paying $25 to check it ahead of time, I got screwed for $60. For a close to 6 hour flight, a meal should be provided. Entertainment was free because of the fiasco, but normally it's $7.99 which is ridiculous. Lastly, the leg room was really nonexistent. Truly the worst experience I've ever had flying, and I've flown plenty of airlines, both domestic and international. I definitely think my return trip back to Jersey will be my last time flying United."
Cons: "Refer to the aforementioned post outlining everything I did not like about this absolute trip from hell. Very disappointing to experience that and it really started the trip out on a sour note. Hopefully it gets better before I have to get back on another United plane back home."
Cons: "I bought a ticket on KAYAK and it was united flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. I buy many tickets going from LA to Vegas. After no indication about any extra costs but only the inability to check in… At the airport I was warned by one of the agents when she told me that my basic economy ticket would not allow me to bring my computer back on the plane without being charged. I've never experienced this in my life. I said I'm not paying and I went through TSA and I boarded without any problem. United has just been axed off of my list of Airlines with which I will travel. Come to think of it the only other airline that I can choose not to travel on his Spirit so United has reached new lows!"
Pros: "Friendly staff, great customer service"
Pros: "I would like to give a rating lower than zero for this airline"
Cons: "Again a full flight and this time I was seated next to an Asian male. I'm deal thy allergic to fish and what did he bring to eat, yep you got it. While I know it's a right for him to do so, I spent the flight with puffed eyes and throat issues. Again, the flight was overbooked"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were kind."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were unkind"
Pros: "I liked that it was on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants are rude and cranky. The plane was hot and over booked."
Cons: "after transferring from terminal B after a long walk then another long walk to transfer to Terminal C and another walk to baggage claim for a 70 yr.old woman and no transport available is intolerable and unacceptable! It is so disgusting that I am a frequent flyer via United Airlines and getting more and more dissatisfied cause of the troubles I'm encounterring flying with United Airlines! I should think twice,the next time I'm booking with the airline for my next flight!"
Cons: "Time on planes"
Pros: "I don't know why but every time I fly United, my flight ends up getting delayed!! I don't know if they are always delayed or its just my luck."
Cons: "Didn't get veggi food while going or coming back in 16 hours. Layover was super long 8hts even when there are other flights available at same destination."
Pros: "First of all the captain let us board early and get settled, the flight attendants were very friendly and the take off and landing were smooth, it was a great flight the seats were comfortable and the trip was short."
Pros: "The view and legroom was nice."
Cons: "I collect disability each month so I am on a very tight budget. The Spanish speaking woman that pushed my wheelchair told me that I can bring my water bottles full of water through the metal detectors. I asked if she could take me somewhere to pour them out and refill them on the other side. They threw them away at the metal detector. So I had to buy a new bottle for my medicine that I have to take. You would think she would have got it by me carrying these bottles around but nope. She actually said to me that I can give her gratuity now if I wanted. I gave her $1. She then replied in a sarcastic voice " Thankyou you are soooo generous. I don't like feeling obligated to tip somebody because I am disabled and have a bullet in my head."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating our requests."
Cons: "Lady directly behind me literally choking, couching, sneezing and constantly blowing her nose (really runny), that was not enjoyable at all. And her two (2) companions were not provide any relief for her."
Pros: "Attention from crew."
Cons: "For a 5 hour flight, instead of a glass of coke or juice, I should get the whole can. Need an alternative to a cookie. some people have 'sugar problems'."
Pros: "The flight overall was great, easy to board and de-board, and a smooth process from start to finish."
Cons: "Connecting to the in-flight wi-fi to watch movies and tv shows was nearly impossible."
Cons: "Almost ruined my trip and lost a day of vacation"
Pros: "They know their business"
Cons: "No free Internet. Costs too outrageous."
Pros: "The flight left on time"
Cons: "There was a gate change and I requested an aisle or a window seat but ended up getting a seat in the middle somehow"
Pros: "The crew on the board were excellent and the seats were comfort"
Cons: "The ground crew must be a little logical related to bags during checking"
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Ample legroom"
Pros: "Seats were great. Will fly with this airline again."
Cons: "Crew not responsive to needs of allergic passengers. As has previously occurred, gate staff chose not to re-seat allergic children with their parents. We were forced to ask fellow passengers if they would swap seats so we could sit next to our allergic children."
Cons: "Boarding experience was terrible. Our flight was delayed by an hour and a half due to maintenance. On top of that, when we finally boarded, my ticket was scanned and the flight attendant said I didn't have a seat, even though I selected a seat when I purchased my ticket online and checked-in the day before my flight. I was boarding Group 3 out 5, but they made me wait for everyone else to get on the plane until they could let me on to find an empty seat for me. In addition, they were rude to me about it, like it was my fault that there was not a seat available for me. I was grateful I was able to have a seat since I wanted to get to Las Vegas as soon as possible after the delay, but it should be something that's expected when you purchase a plane ticket..."
