Worst traveling experience I’ve ever had with American Airlines

I liked the attention paid by the flight attendants. They were excellent. The customers were all very well behaved. The airplane’s ability to accommodate the passengers was excellent, with USB ports at each seat.

Onboard Wi-Fi kept cutting out. Flight attendant comped me my drink because they didn’t have what I wanted. Her name is Beth and she was awesome.

Flight boarded, departed, and landed right on time. Great communication from the crew. I really like the planes with the phone holders. Only thing that I disliked is the bathroom in the middle right between seats which can be smelly!

Agents at the counter needs to be more nicer and happy to come to work

Great processes! Easy navigation! Organized!

Wifi didn't work and there were no screens on the back of the seats

Hot as heck on flight

Leaving Miami to Austin was a mess! TSA needs to do better job!

Wifi not working on iPhones

Friendly crew and clean airplane. Also loved the device charger hookup. Would have liked some more of those delicious biscuit cookies! =)

Aside from the 5-6 texts for the flight changing the flight was pretty comfortable

very bad experience they closed the flight 10 minutes before the flight girls very bad attention

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "If the security doesn’t humiliate the people"
Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were true heroes, they did they're absolute best in a terrible situation."
Cons: "American Airlines once again fails to provide the required number of flights and crews for a holiday weekend, and did a terrible job of letting passengers know what the situation with their flights are."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "I had some issues with the Onboard entertainment in terms of connecting with the site. I typically do not have this problem with my airline of choice but choose you because of the proximity of my hotel to my desired departure airport as well as price."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The crew was rude, we took off over an hour late, there was no food for sale on board"
Cons: "Full can of soda"
Cons: "The jerks left early despite the fact that security and baggage were backed up. We ran to our gate and barely missed the flight. Jerks! Who leaves early when so many passengers are missing?!"
Cons: "3 hr delay and had to change gates"
Cons: "Plane was very delayed, Crew seemed very inexperienced, and the plane had a maintenance issue after boarding as well. Overall, this was a very poor experience."
Pros: "Love the seat. Left side best going to Jackson hole"
Cons: "Bigger snack"
Pros: "Quick, on time, MCE even has some legroom."
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Pros: "Easy, no hassle travel."
Cons: "Stale mini pretzels are not appetizing. There are much better inexpensive alternatives. Yuck."

Pros: "Seats which I choose where very comfortable."
Cons: "Would have like a choice in food severd"
Cons: "Mechanical problems deejays the flight and I missed my connection. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."
Cons: "."
Cons: "No carbs free meals."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "For the 100th time, you seats are too dang small."
Pros: "S"
Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"
Pros: "Good entertainment options in newer flights."
Cons: "Food options for first class could be better."
Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
Pros: "Airport expansion"
Cons: "Due to construction traffic is a problem but still manageable"
Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"
Pros: "wifi was great"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."
Cons: "The 20 minute wait before we could dock at the gate An annoying air vent making an intermittent noise... Something broken obviously"
Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Cons: "No internet on plane. Plane was older. Seats were not comfortable. Had to wait 40 minutes in hot plane for our gate to be available for our plane to pull into."
Cons: "I paid $40 extra to select a seat and the seat was a middle seat and very uncomfortable and a rip off."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"
Pros: "crew was amazing!!"
Cons: "nothing!"
Cons: "Had to sit on the tarmac for 35 minutes because our flight was “randomly” selected to wait because there was too much air traffic over Houston. Result: I missed my connection to my final destination. The airline promised that the other flights were alerted of the delay and that people would be there to assist. May departure gate was literally two gates away from my arrival gate in Houston. No one was there to help. No exceptions were made to get me on the flight, even as it was delayed at the gate for 15 minutes, meaning that they could have gotten me aboard. The whole experience made me very angry. After all this, I had to wait an additional two hours for the next flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."
Pros: "flights delayed overall"
Cons: "service. flights were delayed and they said there was nothing they could do"
Pros: "The staff put on a smiley face despite the delays and upset passengers."
Cons: "Delays from an earlier flight getting in and then maintenance delays. It was an overcrowded, uncomfortable flight. We didn't even get an apology from it being over 40 minutes late. Then you want us to buy tv? I'm thinking of flying Jet Blue next time!"
Pros: "The cabin crew weren't charging people for alcohol on the flight"
Cons: "On checking in we had to use a machine to print our boarding passes and take our bags to a bag drop in Newark. The man proceeded to put a large tray on the conveyor belt, swing our bags in the air then smash them down into the tray. This was done to both bags as if we weren't there. Had there been something expensive in there it would have been totally destroyed. He really couldn't have cared less about our bags and their contents. We were talking to a woman on the plane who was telling us that a woman a few rows behind who had a new born baby as was told she would be given a seat with extra legroom had this taken away from her to United could sell the seat to someone paying for it. The chicken and orzo dinner was absolutely revolting. The orzo was so over cooked that it just turned to mush and the chicken really didn't taste like it had ever seen a chicken. All this combined with the issues we had on our flight out show that United are scum and just see you as ££. Sorry I cant be more complementary than that, its just the truth."
Pros: "The crew was good and the snack was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seat was absolute misery. I spent the second half of the flight constantly fidgeting trying to find a comfortable position that didn't feel like it was ruining my back. I was unsuccessful. Entertainment options were shocking. Each seat had a screen, but there was no free VOD. The only free option was a stream of two episodes of a terrible discovery show padded with ads to fill 4 hours. I tried to pull my laptop out to watch anything else, but the seat was too small to open a 15" laptop."
Pros: "Delayed, still in Houston waiting for another flight to go back home since last night"
Pros: "Aside from the turbulence the ride was fine."
Cons: "We got stuck for an hour on the tarmac in Denver, completely ruining the transfer process and I got stuck overnight in Denver."
Pros: "Comfortable all the way."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "My July 11 fiight UA1259 was delayed and I could not connect to Milan. I had to stay in Newark for 1 night. But UA assigned me a hotel about 1 hour driving from Newark Airport. I had to rent by my own money $160 a day. UA should arraign a hotel either close to the airport or pay the rental car for me."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "I had to be switched to a different airline, arriving 3 hours after I was supposed to I was late to my grandmother's funeral and had the most difficult time even arranging this, as the rep rebooking was adamant about me getting on the next United flight 12 hours later Then, my $310 luggage failed to arrive and I had no clothes to wear to my grandmother's wake. When it did arrive, my suitcase was broken. I tried filing a claim with United and they dismissed it and stated that they were not responsible - a recurring theme from this entire experience"
Pros: "I boarded Lufthansa Flight# 568 on June 1st from Frankfurt to Lagos (my Destination) but forgot my pair of glasses. I made a couple of calls and was finally able to get a contact email address for malik.haruna@dlh.de. He is the gentleman at the NAHCO AVIANCE office. He was not only very professional but went over and beyond corresponding well and was able to get the word across to the Malabo Airport where the flight finally terminated. My pair of glasses was returned from Malabo to Nigeria where I picked it up within a couple of days. I was so overjoyed at this display of fantastic customer service. Great job by the excellent team at Lufthansa. I'm going to remain with Lufthansa for future trips. Signed OF."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The crew was understanding and patient"
Cons: "I was informed by text that flight would be 3 hours late but when I called I was told I would need to get to airport at least an hour before scheduled departure as They MIGHT get a new aircraft!!!! However when I got to airport the flight was now listed at 4 hours late. Then it was listed as 6 hours late and We arrived 6 1/2 hours late. I had missed my first trAin connection and lost part of that fee because of change then had to take UBER from airport to Penn Station in order to catch the LAST train to my home in upstate NY and was so late I could not call people to pick me up so had to take another taxi. The $50 credit you gave us did not even cover my extra taxi fares let alone aggravation AND the TV monitor in front of my seat did not work!! I am a United mileage person who flies regularly but to Texas and internationally but this was worst flight in years."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"
Pros: "Prompt departure"
Cons: "The weather in denver"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Waiting 45 minutes going on the tarmac and 60 minutes coming back"
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "That I got a window seat"
Cons: "Didn't like the boading system. Ppl. Had to stand for long time just for them to start announce boarding for each group"
Pros: "Great crew, especially crew from Leesburg, VA, and Baltimore, MD. Made it fun!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "United did manage to reroute us so that we cought up with the flight to Europe we were booked on."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Though delayed through no fault of the airline, there was very little effort made to hold connecting flight for a few brief moments so that we could catch up to it"
Pros: "Small plane"
Cons: "Air con too cold. Freezing inside the plane"
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything went by smoothly, no problems"
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home by now, but instead I'm sitting in an airport in Houston writing a review about how ducky this flight experience has been. Delays delays delays. Nothing to eat because all the restaurants are closed. Can't go anywhere because nobody knows what is happening and "it could be any minute now." Two hours later... still here."
Cons: "Everything was horrible"
Cons: "Had to deboard after an hour on the plane. Waited another hour for next flight."
Cons: "Delay without updates. Almost missed my connection. No TV."
Cons: "The people at the check in in Boise were unpleasant. Seemed angry and frustrated with everyone. Our flight from San Francisco to Boise was cancelled and the person on the phone was not helpful at all. The two flight attendants argued at least three times dragging passengers in on their fight. My husband and I were sitting in the back. It was very uncomfortable. Thank goodness I had my headphones. Then the flight attendant followed one of the passengers to the women's restroom at the SF airport to argue her point after overhearing she was going to email the airline!"
Cons: "Price was not competitive"
Pros: "Space, cleanliness, boarding procedures"
Cons: "Snack options"
Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."
Pros: "My flight was early every time"
Cons: "All planes were booked fully"
Pros: "Had a window seat that allowed me to sleep"
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected and the pilot kept communication open to us. Onboarding from Austin was smooth and the agents were friendly at the gate."
Cons: "Boarding was a challenge as there was not enough overhead room, delaying getting on/off the plane because my bags ended up in the back of the plane far from my seat. No TVs, tight space / small plane."
Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"
Cons: "Limited food and drinks options."
Pros: "Polite attendants!"
Cons: "Will definitely recommend to friends!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for more than 3 hours. The plane had technical difficulties... But the delay was sooo long."
Pros: "Good customers service!"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "everything on United's part was fine"
Cons: "Return trip had small planes"
Cons: "flight was 3 hours late, initially due to maintanence"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "The aircraft size. The fact that the plane left and arrived on schedule."
Cons: "The overhead compartments were very small and didn't fit a regular size carry-on suitcase.."
