Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Not enough leg room in seat"
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
Pros: "Kind bar"

Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."
Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"
Cons: "The food service was way to rushed , no time to relax with a cocktail before dinner was being served. The warm mixed nuts were stale tasting. The soup was excellent. The breakfast was not edible . Not your usual standard, Delta. Makes me sad as my late husband was a million miler plus and we have always been loyal to you, Seems like you have too many passengers in business class to provide food and service you can be proud of"
Pros: "They have the flight very well planned out, you get frequent drnks and food initially and then they turn the lights out for a good amount of time so that people can rest. Then, they come by again before landing with more drinks and a snack. Very well coordinated."
Cons: "Really, my only complaint is that after leaving Atlanta ~ 4 pm,,you arrive in Europe at 8 am. The first day is very difficult to adjust to. I would much rather arrive in Europe at night, and get to rest for a night before starting."
Cons: "While there was plenty of space on the aircraft, I was forced to gate check my carry on."
Cons: "No power to charge"
Cons: "Like everyone says - could use more leg room. Theres no way to stretch legs which is a problem on ling flights. Why not lift up the seats by a few inches? This would create more leg room underneath without changing the number of seats and doesnt impact the head room much."
Pros: "Nice crew and good equipment"
Cons: "Bad bad food very disappointing"
Cons: "cramped in economy class"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
Pros: "Entertainment ( movies) were nice."
Cons: "9 hour flight and no food(meal) until 1 hour before we land. The worst food I've had on a international flight."
Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."
Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and ensured you had everything to your comfort . Great selection on movies . The food and wine selection was divine. Great service"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable the entire flight. Seats too close together, then when you recline you hit the person behind you."
Cons: "Good tv shows, friendly attendants"
Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."
Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."
Pros: "The in-flight service was extremely good."
Cons: "The seat was slightly too short for me. If Delta provided a soft mattress cover, slimiler to that of Virgin Atlantic, then the flat bed would be far more comfortable."
Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"
Pros: "Staff friendly & made sure that everyone on the plane was aware of someone with a peanut allergy so no peanuts were to be eaten. Ground staff worked hard to get us rebooked & on our way as our first flight was so late that we missed our connection. So glad to finally see a charging port as our long haul flight didn't have them."
Cons: "Not the crews fault but this was the slowest disembarking process on a plane that I have ever seen. Hard to get comfortable in the seat. Not able to sit with husband as it was a rebooked flight & the flight was full."
Cons: "No free meals."
Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."
Pros: "Good experience given that it was a long flight."
Cons: "How about meal service on the 5hr flight from Atlanta to Portland? The food for purchase options left much to be desired."
Pros: "at least, i got to Haiti"
Cons: "delays + long flight."
Pros: "Food and wine"
Cons: "Seats are difficult to sleep in"

Cons: "Seats most uncomfortable on any flight I have ever taken"
Cons: "The last 30 people on the plane were told there is no.overhead space for a second bag, so I had to check it at the gate. Once on the plane, there was plenty of overhead space. To make it worse, it was raining at my destination, and my bag, and contents, got wet while it was being unloaded."
Pros: "I only fly Delta because they are consistent and efficient and very courteous."
Pros: "The gate agent was outstanding and extremely pleasant. The flight to OKC was only half full so the Crew moved everyone around so there was extra room on every row...that doesn't happen very often so I was excited to have extra leg and seat room!"
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, and flight left on time."
Pros: "It was a lot more comfortable. There were not many people so it was nice to stretch out ."

Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and helpful"
Cons: "First of all flight was delayed an hour and a half.. Then I went to get something to eat to kill time just to find out they switched the gate causing me to have to run all the way to the new gate then they close the door as I was walking up and told me I missed my flight even though the plane was still there for another 15 minutes.. so I had to fly standby on the next flight which was another hour and a half later.. I arrived at the airport at 12:30 and didn't end up catching a flight until 7:45 p.m.... oh and I forgot to mention that I originally paid for an upgrade for priority seating with more legroom that I never received because they put me on the very last seat that you can't even replying because there is a wall behind you.. SMH"

Pros: "Staff was pleasant"
Pros: "Let me book my luggage free ."
Cons: "Texas people on there break,cannot talk to customers that are lost"
Pros: "Re-routed to Phx; inflight Phx was closed. Diverted to Tucson. Only jets on the ramp were American. Seems if you close an airport there would be a lot more than 4 jets and different airlines. Landed at 11pm; still on the aircraft at 130am"
Cons: "Let's see pretty much the whole experience"
Pros: "Ease of access. Hospitality."
Cons: ". The plane was clearly a very old model - very cramped."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather, which is understandable. The way your staff handled this in both Atlanta and Philly was totally unacceptable. No one knew what to do.

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything from the 6 different times our flight got delayed and after 7 hours of waiting they just canceled our flight at 2am with no remorse and the worst customer service ever"
Cons: "The ticket agents for my flight into LAX were awful. They were rude to other passengers and extremely curt and disrespectful. The one agent, Tamika, spoke in a tone as if she were speaking with a child. The passenger in front of me had the same unpleasant experience and subsequently filed a complaint. It just confirms my theory, that some people are just not meant for customer service positions."
Cons: "The DELAY"
Pros: "Leg room was ok.."
Cons: "American Airlines don't have entertainment that one can access when on board unlike united airlines. They have an icon for entertainment that passengers can watches movies when on board. AA, don't offer snacks to its passengers unlike United airlines..! Seat 8A has white stuff falling from the top.., seemed like particles of ice-they were cold."

Pros: "Roomy & comfortable seating for such a small aircraft"

Pros: "I really liked the entertainment on board. Made the flight go by so fast."
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours making us miss our connecting flight, the revised flight was delayed resuslting in missing our next connection and this resulted it lost baggage. So an 11 hour flight becames 24 hours which is unacceptable when travling with 2 kids. Nevering flying United again."
Cons: "Very small screens, poor service when flight was delayed from boarding hostess"
Pros: "It got us to London. My bags were quickly available."
Cons: "The seats were SO. UNCOMFORTABLE. I didn't sleep at all and have a headache because of them. Absolutely atrocious. The food was meh. One of the flight attendants was so rude I dreaded every time she headed over. I'll be flying with Delta in the future."
Cons: "We should up 2.5 hours before our flight. Was told by United desk clerk my flight to Chicago was the day before and that the reservation for my wife was for correct day but had been cancelled"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable with adequate cushioning."
Cons: "The drinks served in plastic cups were tiny."

Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin crew were a little bit edgy. Not as pleasant as others on similar route."
Cons: "2.5h hours delay almost made me miss my second flight that day. Also agent didn't seem to know anything so wasn't able to help."
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Pros: "The trip TO the United States was bearable."
Cons: "This flight was a complete disaster. I ended up b=on a different flight to Newark, as my flight to Chicago got canceled. Then that fight was unable to land, so I spent hours in baltimore, and missed my connecting flight to Brussels. By the time I finally arrived, 4 hours late, to Newark, I had to spend 2 hours in a line to get re-book, for a flight the next night. I was compensated for all this mess with a $10 food voucher, and had to get a cab from the airport to the closest and cheapest hotel. My flight to Brussels was uneventful, save one rude flight attendant, and I got to school a day late."
Pros: "It's funny that they try to sell you the entertainment .nobody buys it, nobody."
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "Nice flight crew Nice gate agents Flights were on-time"
Cons: "Seats are a little tight To select seats during online check-in cost $33 per seat"

Cons: "Explanation on why it took so long to board was a vage"
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "Crew was able to switch my seat so I was able to board early and have a seat where I could stretch my bad foot."
Cons: "On takeoff and landing it sounded like the plane was falling apart - literally. My confidence was shaken when it sounded like someone was sawing the belly of the plane. Very scary."
Pros: "People only comment to complain. In my case, everything went smoothly and ahead of schedule. The pilots took advantage of tail winds and put us at the gate ten minutes ahead of schedule. The crew was professional, personable and did their best to make everyone as comfortable as possible."
Pros: "The crew were wearing new uniforms. They look nice!"
Cons: "Seets were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight was canceled"
Cons: "Flight was canceled and I'm finding it difficult to get a refund"
Pros: "Was good, but will be great if the wifi is free for all"
Cons: "Can't complain"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Rude staff. Very mean to me in the fact that I can't walk and needed assistance. Flight delayed for a ridiculous amount of time. I was not informed until last minute"
Pros: "This was my first time flying United and first time flying on a jet. The plane was small which was a little scary, not the huge Delta airplanes that I am accustomed to. However the ride was smooth and quick. I liked that they turned the lights off which made it super cozy, I slept like a baby and I never sleep when I fly! Both flights were great!"
Cons: "I can't complain at all."
Cons: "The flight was delayed seversl times for crew staffing issues. I missed my connection to LAX and therefore, missed a very important business meeting."
Pros: "The rate was great The captain was courteous The flight attendants was very courteous"
Cons: "The delays was awful I'm disabled wasn't offered no assistant to get from one terminal to the next because your flight delays we waited 3hours to go from Chicago to Boston then get on plane and wasn't offered but a swallow of soda that was poured out of a twelve ounce can split between three customers And I'm diabetic my sugar was low because the unexpected delay So that made a perfectly good trip awful"
Pros: "Quick flight, landing was terrible. Spent to long in the airport."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled at the boarding time: the plane was ready without a flight crew causing the cancelation. Finding a replacement flight was very difficult and the Costomer service was not helpful. After showing I was active duty military, a seat "appeared" on the next flight out and I was put on standby for an earlier flight For that day. The earliest flight before then, wasn't until Tuesday the 29th. This was not acceptable."
Pros: "They got us into Chicago which nice. Also United was giving away free bottles of water for the holidays."
Pros: "The flight attendant ran out of regular sprite, ginger ale, and seltzer water by the time he reached the last row. Finally settled for water."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "It wasn't the airlines fault, just weather related. The plane was so small the the winds just flung it around a bit. Not enjoyable at all."
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I had to switch my flight to Denver, CO and fly through Delta."
Pros: "I liked that the airline gave me a complimentary flight change because I didn't realize I was crossing into another time zone to get to the air port so by the time I got through the traffic and to the airport, my flight was pretty much leaving. They were very quick to get everything rearranged for my new flight. I was very tearful. The staff was very helpful."
Cons: "I didn't like that it took me almost an hour to get through security, however that is probably why they say to be there two hours early. I also didn't like how hard it was to find where I was supposed to be dropped off for departures. It took me about 30 mins driving in circles trying to find the place to be dropped off for departures. I first went to the international side because my final destination was an international destination but then I realized that my first flight is domestic.... I'm a dork. :/ I wish they would tell you the exact directions how to get to the gate and could give you a live feed on estimated time it will take to get there. I should have called ahead of time to figure it out, but I want expecting it to be so hard."
Pros: "It was a normal flight. Normal take off delays."
Pros: "United was effecient in the rebooking process"
Pros: "The free coffee?"
Cons: "Boarding took forever, there was no space in the over head bins. People just completely brain farted and stood in the aisles, unable to comprehend the lack of space."
Cons: "Never made it because of stupid United"
Pros: "I was overall impressed. Both flights were early to the destination. All the flight crew were friendly. The planes were very clean."
Cons: "No food was offered, not even to purchase on a 3.5 hour flight. The $25 charge per bag is too high."
Cons: "Flight was delayed ended up switching to a Delta Flight."
Pros: "The crew were professional, helpful and friendly. The numbered boarding lines work really well."
Cons: "Although I was able to bring both of my bags on board because they were small, many people were forced to check theirs at the gate. The airline should tell people this ahead of time, or even have a 1-bag policy, rather than spring this surprise on people at the gate. The seats were too close together. It was impossible for me to find a comfortable sitting position. I'm not especially tall, but I could not extend my legs enough."
Pros: "Nothing was satisfactory"
Cons: "Charging double due to flight discrepancy. This might be my last time flying United. HORRIBLE customer service."
Pros: "VERY loud engine startup. Aside from that, superb!"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
