Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The flight attendants were friendly, watched a movie, thanks for the ear buds to listen to the movie. There was a lot of turbulence but I feel our pilot managed it very well bringing us in safely and smoothly as possible. I can't think of anything that could have been improved on."
Pros: "Landed in one piece despite weather."
Cons: "WiFi was down"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Carry-on luggage needs to be monitored more closely. I saw one passenger with three pieces. Meanwhile, I had to stow my bag 10 rows behind me."
Cons: "It was a quick and perfect flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed initially because of plane late arrival then rerouting and then delayed and cancelled. Spent the night on the floor with no offers for food or beverages or at least offering vouchers for delays not related to weather. Tried to lie and say it was weather related."
Cons: "Charlotte lost my bag and will not answer"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work"
Cons: "Didn’t fly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice and ended up arriving hours after schedule. I get sometimes this happens. I was frustrated bc we were boarded and seated, ready to taxi with no pilot!

Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Cons: "inflight entertainment wasn't working on my seat only which made my 6 hour flight seem even longer :("

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendant had some attitude as if they were not enjoying their work."
Pros: "Everyone was nice. Flight left on time an landed early."
Cons: "The front row for the exit is too small. The diagram i looked at said it was an exit row on the 2nd leg of my flight. It wasnt!! Uncomortable for my legs. Im 6'3"
Pros: "Despite a departure delay due to necessity to off load some passengers due to nonfunctional seats we arrived 20 minutes early."

Cons: "They forgot our vegetarian meal, although I triple checked that we had ordered it."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."

Cons: "Ran out of red wine"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hrs late, of which 1.5 before boarding, and almost 1.5 stuck in the plane."
Cons: "Boarding took forever, the flight was over 2 hours late which caused me to miss my connecting flight and my military orders were not honored - I still had to pay extra to take all my gear back to my duty station. Never had that issue with any other American airline."
Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"
Pros: "The crew had Halloween candy they bought themselves. It shows they care."
Cons: "Catering didn't happen. The pilot told us early, apologized and said we would arrive a little early to make up for it."
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Cons: "We were in the very last row so they ran out of food options."
Cons: "Missed the connection in CLT to BTR even though flight status on AA's website indicated that it was delayed enough so that I could make the connection. Ended up spending the night in a cold-assed airport with minimal comfort. I was already confirmed on this flight and AA knew, or should've known, that I was enroute. Not pleased at all."
Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."
Cons: "Taking 48 hours to get home and it would have taken longer if I didn't insist on being put on standby. Being told it was probably "god's will" that my flightless canceled."
Pros: "crew was good"
Cons: "very little room and my flight from charlete NC to augusta GA was a slob next to me (didn't even fit in the seat) Row 4, was chewing tobacco and spitting in a bottle. It was extremely disgusting, I wanted to vomit the whole flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "All flights delayed and missed last flight in Charlotte costing me my hotel in wilimington and had still waiting to get on itto purchase an additional room in Charlotte. Staff in no hurry to assist!!!!!"
Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. 3 gate changes and finally on an old plane. Avoid if you can. Only good thing about it, it was bringing me home"
Pros: "Todo estubo muy bien"
Pros: "Crew was awesome and attentive. Smooth flight and clean."
Cons: "No way to charge a cell phone during the flight. No chargers at the airport waiting area for the flight. There was a metal box under the seat in front of me so i could not out my bag there, could not even fit my feet there."
Cons: "It's hard to rate a flight that didn't happen"
Pros: "Service, comfort, timeliness."
Cons: "Food was marginal, especially the chicken in the salad, which was petrified."
Pros: "Nothing....old plane crappy service...the crew seems That they been punish to do that flight ...screens didn’t work...one of the crew members told me that I can’t change seats even that my screen dinner work because I didn’t pay enough to change my seat"
Cons: "To fly in another airline.... United ? No way what a lack of empathy.... never again"
Cons: "It was a mess from start to finish. Ridiculous lines. Ridiculous covid rules. They have us all shoulder to shoulder in tiny waiting areas then suddenly we get on line to board and have to stand six feet apart and then on the plane we are squashed all together anyway. It’s all so stupid. Not having the ability to get a boarding pass from the online app or printed made me have to wait in a line 300 people long to access the kiosk and then half of them were down. Then another line maybe 500 people long just to be allowed up the escalator to where there is another line to go through exuding checks. Nuts!!! My flight was an hour and I spent three hours online getting to it!!!"
Pros: "Cookies are delicious"
Cons: "I hate that United doesn’t let you get a boarding pass early if you don’t pay for for a bag. Hell, even Frontier lets you check in early. There was no one at the ticket counter till an hour before check in so I had to wait around outside security till I could get a boarding pass. It’s bullshit"
Pros: "Small aircraft, not crowded. The single window seat on the left side of the plane allowed me to stretch my legs."
Pros: "It was a mediocre flight. No frills."
Cons: "Seats could be more comfortable."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The food was literally inedible. The breakfast of mushroom omelette and sausage was so unsavory, I could see the line where the outter “eggy” shell covered the inside, decidedly less eggy and hidden section. I had to stop eating it after 3 bites. Very disappointed with food quality."
Cons: "It would have been great but they ran out of Buffalo Trace halfway through the flight - or that is the line from flight attendants"
Pros: "Everything about the airlines and aircraft and crew make you feel like you’re flying first class even when you’re not. The plane was immaculate, foot was gourmet (and A LOT of it!) and crew was professional, friendly and efficient. I will plan on scheduling all my international flights with Swiss Airlines when possible. We even flew on a shorter flight with them and still received a good sized meal."
Pros: "Arrived at San Diego on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small"
Pros: "Non stop . Wife and I were given side by side seats"
Cons: "Last row"
Pros: "Staff somewhat friendly"
Cons: "See above comment regarding no beverage but gave pretzels."
Pros: "The crew did a fantastic job, as is usually the case. Thanks folks."
Cons: "The three hour delay, the lack of the new business class seats the plane was supposed to have, and United’s inability to get us our bags after we missed our connecting flight by 20 minutes."
Pros: "Short sweet, hard to beat!"
Cons: "No room for my knees - they hurt considerably afterward. The seat did not recline."
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Narrow seats, poor legroom"
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "Onboard entertainment was outstanding and the crew was attentive to everyone and their needs at all times"
Cons: "It took a really long time to board not sure why and the food didn’t taste bad but made me a little sick to my stomach afterwards."

Pros: "We have Global entry so the security was a breeze. Everyone was happy !"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Everything went smooth for being in coach."
Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient it"
Cons: "It was late"
Cons: "First flight delayed by 2 hours for crew rest; with no significant weather in Corpus Christi, from the night before, this shouldn't happen. I had to re-route, and arrived 5 hours after I was supposed to."
Cons: "I did not like that there was no food. Long flights are supposed to give some, at least a small sandwich."
Cons: "It was an almost 5 hour flight and all we were offered was a small bag of pretzels."
Cons: "It was more of a United experience....they canceled the flight 30 minutes before take off and scheduled me for the morning. It seemed they knew the that this flight would not take off because they sent my bags ahead on the earlier flight but left me waiting for 5 hours. before the cancellation. This was not a Kayak issue but a United"
Cons: "The seating is cramped but to be expected in coach. No big deal."
Pros: "Good seats. Good air hostess - very nice and tried to make jokes."
Cons: "Bought a snack -- terrible Hummus and Pita, but also wanted cheese platter, but they had run out of it. Entertainment was too hard to actually enjoy -- i couldn't download flash on my laptop while in the air."
Pros: "I appreciated that the captain, although it sounds as though he wasn't originally scheduled for this flight, flew us to Cleveland anyway since the originally scheduled one was delayed. The landing was incredibly smooth, especially given the circumstances/weather."
Pros: "Great crew, especially crew from Leesburg, VA, and Baltimore, MD. Made it fun!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and fast. Plenty of luggage space."
Cons: "Seat wouldn't move back and they take too long to turn on the A/C which makes me nauseous."
Cons: "Multiple delays labeled "operational delays" ended up "canceled due to weather" even though there was no weather anywhere sin the country at the time. Our plan was at the gate from the night before but they just didn't have crew to operate the planes."
Pros: "Like the treatment,very gentil personal and the attention whit the passengers,like the way to precede my boarding pass, luggage,i like that way to explain process of emergency situation does tips save life's iam happy Great very satisfied services."
Cons: "No coments"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "To close"
Pros: "Good crew"
Pros: "I am Brenda Crooks, Zachary's mom. I am the one that actually took the trip. I went to Connecticut to see my son, Samuel, get his white coat for medical school. I will never forget my experience in Newark, New Jersey. I met a wonderful woman named Yevette who checked in my luggage. She is to be commended on going above and beyond the call of duty. I don't know her last name. She knew I was very upset because I was leaving my 22 year old baby in Connecticut. She sympathized and comforted me. She put her arms around me and assured me that everything was going to be alright. She is a wonderful woman with a big heart. She is the true meaning of a lady. I will never forget her and thank her so very much for being so gracious and kind to me."
Pros: "The flight was timely, the interior was cooled and comfortable. The flight was otherwise quite comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hour leaving Seattle."
Pros: "Crew and facilities were great. I will travel with you again."
Cons: "Again the seats were a little hard."
Pros: "This was for my in-laws and they were very happy and great full for all the help"
Pros: "Honestly nothing. The flight was a disaster."
Cons: "Second flight of the day with zero drink service. I suppose the hostesses were too busy napping and eating their dinner as they never left the last row of the plane. They sure had drinks and dinner even though we didn't. Also should have cancelled or delayed the flight rather than make us wait forever on the plane waiting for a new route to miss weather at our destination."
Pros: "No problems."
Pros: "Originally was planned to fly into Denver but the flight was delayed due to weather, they were able to re-route us through SFO earlier in the day with no headache. The original flight ended up cancelled and so we would have been delayed a day or 2. The ease of the switch was perfect and allowed to focus on our trip and not the travel. 5 stars."
Pros: "Nothing to eat... For the price of the ticket, this is shameful!!"
Pros: "Everything was easy."
Cons: "The plane was hot"
Pros: "Economy plus was nice."
Cons: "Flight was over an hour late"
