In one instance, as they passed to pick up trash, they took two of my three items. They started walking on, and I tapped them as they passed to pick up the third.

I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"

Pros: "Everyone was nice and it went smoothly!"

Pros: "No"

Cons: "Never made it"

Pros: "entertaining system"
Cons: "food could be better, not bad though"

Cons: "Lateness, seat comfort and gate checking a duffel bag"

Cons: "the connection time between flights was NOT adequate especially considering I had to go through customs! AA did page me and had a representative (I think his name was Brian) waiting for me to help me get to my connection. He gave me a bright red/orange tag. I still hit some barriers. I was stopped in security and my carry on was put aside to be searched. It sat and sat . I explained to the man I had to go. He said he was working alone, so I had to wait. I was ready to leave it and just run to catch the flight, but the security man said I wasn't allowed to do that. He finally called someone else to search my bag (nothing found) I did make it...barely!"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Quick and did good job"

Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "It's just like very other airlines."

Pros: "See above"

Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Before I booked the flight I noticed it was only on time 53% of the time. True to that number we were delayed almost an hour before takeoff. Why schedule fights so close if almost half the time it's delayed? Something needs to change."

Pros: "Good free entertainment. Thanks."
Cons: "No good free snacks. Only free drinks."

Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."

Pros: "wifi was great"

Pros: "Infrastructure"
Cons: "Staff behaviour"

Cons: "There was no food offered. The stewardess was not happy to be at work."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"

Cons: "Same as above"

Cons: "The 20 minute wait before we could dock at the gate An annoying air vent making an intermittent noise... Something broken obviously"

Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"

Pros: "Old plane"

Pros: "Excellent attitude of the crew from AUS to SFO. They promptly addressed the overhead bin issues with the groups 1 and 2 boarding. We left on time, and arrived ahead of schedule. Smiles all around."
Cons: "Rules surrounding one personal item carry on: If bringing food to nibble and save to share later but wish to not place into carry on, I must pay the additional $30 at the check-in counter. Negates the savings and makes me wish to book another airline."

Cons: "All went well."

Cons: "They need to learn from asian airlines (specifically Thai Airways)"

Pros: "Comfortable plane. I love United Express."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Have seatback TV and arrived on-time"
Cons: "Sitting in window seat"

Pros: "Flight left on departure and on board air cooling system was much welcome. Cabin crew were polite."
Cons: "Cabin was untidy, goodness knows what was stowed away at the back of seats towards the rear of the cabin, so rear of cabin was unwelcoming. Cabin crew should keep some overhead lockers for their own use. Poor sound quality on Inflight entertainment, either that or Headphones were poor. Food portions were painfully small (lunch of chicken risotto) AND I found pretzel flavoured breakfast bap unpopular."

Pros: "Read above"

Pros: "Sucked"
Cons: "On time, free food and WiFi for our troubles and serious delay, our money back."

Cons: "The fuel mishap made us late which is just not ok.g get it right."

Cons: "Legroom, bin space, food"

Cons: "I could not choose my seat"

Pros: "Food was great"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Good flight, personal device entertainment, on-plane flight attendant helped switch some seats so my family could stick together"
Cons: "Meddlesome gate agent split my family up before we boarded, lost one of my bags at SFO (got it 1.5 days later)."

Cons: "Nickle and diming....baggage fee, meal."

Pros: "No complaints about wait times, punctuality or the crew."
Cons: "TV and headphone jack both defective. Paid for First Class and expected better. Since this was also not a flight with entertainment availability on personal devices I’m glad I had my kindle on board for the 3 1/2 hour flight."

Pros: "Punctual flight, fabulous flight attendants, and the best airline food I’ve eaten in a long time. I can’t remember the last time passengers were given a menu to order food from ."
Cons: "No WiFi on board"

Pros: "Attendents were very nice."
Cons: "Cramped"

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."

Cons: "I hate the apps for entertainment- it's so chintzy in comparison to Delta that has the nice the on the back of the chairs. Seats so cramped"

Cons: "Super late pilots/airplane. The time wasn't followed as it was always DELAYED!"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Crowded"

Cons: "Leg room! Nice staff, smooth ride and landing."

Pros: "The attendants were friendly, knowledgeable, available. Flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and cramped. Cold inside plane. "Free" Wi-Fi free only after you downloaded app. Didn't know I needed to down load app before we took off so then I needed Wi-Fi to download app, which cost money. Noisy inside plane. Ear plugs would be nice."

Pros: "Flight crew friendly & helpful."
Cons: "Overbooked. No overhead storage."

Pros: "The flight was 3 hours late, for 'weather conditions' as we were told. We've been given no compensation or vouchers. Communication was super poor: displays still showing the originary boarding time. And then suddenly they started birding before the time announced."

Pros: "I made it to the destination on time."
Cons: "Small seats, I'm not big, just tall. You have to pay extra for everything except for non-alcoholic beverages. Crews get by doing their basic job. Pretty sure they are not even required to smile. I fly a lot and know this is just the way it is with most US continental airlines. They all suck and should take notes from any international airline."

Pros: "The flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "We boarded the plane when the crew knew of a 4 hour weather delay. As soon as the last person boarded we were told to disembark. The time kept getting updated in 30 minute intervals, but the desk staff said we wouldn't be flying for the entire 4 hours. We were again told to board the plane and we would be leaving early, but no we just waited on the tarmac for an hour until the original 4 hour delay. Just give it to folks straight. Everyone was frustrated due to the run around."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When I checked in 25 hours in advance I didn't have seat assaignemtns and when I got to the airport all they could tell me is they flight was overbooked and I could possibly not have a seat. Once getting through security we checked in again and we were given seats but not next to each other. The overall experience was horrible and since I didn't everything I was supposed to I felt like I got screwed. Overall not happy at all."

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!"

Pros: "Everbody seemed nice. Smooth ride."
Cons: "The back bins get filled too quickly. Same issue going and coming."

Pros: "The connection Austin to Newark, Newark to Amsterdam"
Cons: "plane could be cleaner"

Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "We were deplaned due to mechanical issue. Had to take a didferent flight which put me in portland 9 hours later than planned. Only compensation received was a $10 meal voucher."

Pros: "Easy boarding for elderly slow passengers"
Cons: "Crowded seat space"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cramped, lost my bags for three days."

Cons: "Purchased two tickets for my wife and me and our seats were separated. Another couple were separated as well. No good very dissatisfied"

Pros: "The flight was uneventful and we landed early. Although there were no entertainment options on the plane besides wifi, I just watched my own shows on the smartphone. The snack that we got was actually not bad."
Cons: "Seat is still a bit small, even with their updated seats that moved the seat pockets to the top. Cushion is hard and became uncomfortable after an hour o so."
