Pros: "they finally let us off the plane after over 3 hours of just sitting on the tarmac"
Cons: "Flight could have taken off and arrived on time in JFK. Weather was the stated reason so understood but stressful and crew were also not patient with the questions regarding connections"

"So smooth and comfortable. Crew was professional and courteous.. We landed way ahead of schedule! A great quick flight! Thank you American Airlines!!"

Cons: "Plane should have been clean due to Covid rules, but was not."

Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Crew was fine, outlets were nice"
Cons: "It should be a crime to have a fully packed plane in the middle of covid. It’s also illogical to not serve food but allow people to bring food on, doesn’t make it more covid safe. I will avoid American Airlines in the future."

Pros: "The crew was amiable. The plane was crowded but clean."

Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour. Being that it doesn't arrive in ABQ until almost midnight, a 52 minute delay means I don't get home until almost 2 in the morning. Seats also seem to be kind of narrow on the 737-800. I'm not a big guy, but I am still bumping shoulders through out the flight."

Cons: "It was a quick and perfect flight."

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"

Pros: "Good flight. 3 hour duration at night. I flew in first class, as the extension of my business class flight from Paris."
Cons: "Had to use a wheelchair service in terminals. Me and another victim were wheeled to 40 feet from the check in desk and the guy took off without further instruction. I hobbled to the counter to make sure we were on the pre-board list. Defeats the purpose, but whatever....."

Pros: "Delayed 4 hours. Strung along the entire time. Awful experience. Inability to get hotel."

Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."

Cons: "Flight could have been on time"

Cons: "Es on flight 5799 which was delayed over four hours and finally cancelled. Delay without explanation but did not appear to be weather related. Cancelled because no crew available. Put on another flight that was to leave st 10:45, but delayed due to weight restrictions without luggage."

Cons: "21/2 delay....no explanariin. But flight attendants did not show up until 9:15 and yet plane had been on the ground since 8:30. Seems poor planning on airline’s part"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."

Pros: "Ease of boarding with the group numbers"

Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."

Pros: "Good communication from the captain"
Cons: "The delays"

Pros: "Food, comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "Asked if there were any exit rows available, gate attendant wasn’t helpful at all. Many were empty but only received attitude when I inquired about it. Never had such an issue in the past. Not with AA nor any other airline. Except maybe the super cheap low-cost carriers, e.g. spirit and frontier. My rocket was not basic economy and I am an AAadvantage credit card member!"

Cons: "Confusion on boarding. No clear direction. One cup of water for 6 hours. No food for 6 hours when other international airlines give food for 3 hours flight and lot of water. Uncomfortable seat."

Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."

Pros: "Flight was pleasant and all the crew members were courteous."

Pros: "Flight departed on time. Meal was hot and tasty. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Insufficient arm/legroom. Limited selection of interesting movies."

Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"

Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"

Pros: "Despite a departure delay due to necessity to off load some passengers due to nonfunctional seats we arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "The seats are too narrow, which I can tolerate for about an hour."

Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"

Cons: "The flight was five hours late leaving Phoenix due to not having a crew"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "No problems."

Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."

Pros: "It was a short trip, LA to Albuquerque. Flight attendants were nice, plane was clean, and I was comfortable enough to sleep all 2 hours"

Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."

Cons: "Cramped seating, uncomfortable cabin temperature, very hard/jolting landing"

Cons: "Prices are high and changes are frequent on rates"

Pros: "Las aeromosas muy amables y profesionales."
Cons: "Los asientos incómodos que no funcionaban el cambio de posición. El pago de sobrepeso escandalozo; por 10 Libras $160 más extra fees...."

Pros: "The flight attendants were great."

Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."

Pros: "Friendly crew."

Pros: "Good Entertainment. One flight attendant was great."
Cons: "American Airlines Seats were too close together. The plane was way way too hot. Asked the flight attendants and spoke to the captain after the flight as the front coach section of the aircraft was at least 10 degrees hotter than the rear. We were all taking layer of off cloths as it was so hot. Seems the first class attendants were not monitoring the temps which regulars the temps just behind first class. Told the flight attendant who also acknowledged it but the first class attendants did not make the change Many were angry. We were on the Tarmac for almost 1.5 hours waiting for the plane to be de-iced. No AC during the process."

"very small overhead bins. neither of my undersized pieces fit. both had to go under my seat. luckily, the passenger next to me still had room for their bag too."

Pros: "The flight attendant was amazing. She was friendly, courteous and went out of her way to make my flight very enjoyable."

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"

Cons: "Uncomfortable"

Pros: "Ease of finding gate"
Cons: "There were several cases of couple who purchased tickets together were separated on the plane & no one knew why they were arranged that way. No solution offered at counter."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Plane was over 2 hours late. It was tiny. Super claustrophobic."

Pros: "What did I like? Nothing. It was United Airlines, and it has been a long time since there was ANYTHING to like about United. Usually, the best one can hope for is that there is plenty to TOLERATE. Unfortunately, this trip did not rise to that standard."
Cons: "UA to Denver cancelled due to maint, issue. Re-booked thru LAX on Delta. Arrived 12 AM vs. planned 6 PM (w/ 7 AM meeting the next day). Delta is 6-block walk outdoors from United at LAX. TSA pre-check didn't show on the Delta ticket issued by United, leading to another hassle at Security."

Cons: "2 hour delay."

Pros: "Things were new"
Cons: "Seats were smaller, legroom was less, seatbacks when fully upright push your heard forward so when I fell asleep, my head kept falling, NO FREE ENTERTAINMENT. They tell you to download the app mid-flight to get free entertainment, but you need to pay for wifi to access the app store."

Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "The persons sitting next to me"

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."

Pros: "Short sweet, hard to beat!"

Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Narrow seats, poor legroom"

Cons: "delayed 2.5 hrs, stood in jetway for 15 mins while crew fixed seatbelt issue. snack was poor; limited options for soda, small pour & only pretzels as snack!"

Cons: "Had a one hour delay on thtarmac waiting for de-icing...weather related."

Pros: "Good progress info in-flight from cockpit"
Cons: "TSA lines at SFO Terminal 3 are a zoo, precheck included. United gates had no facilities available to plug in a charger. C'mon folks, it's 2017, one wall outlet with two kids sprawled on the carpet next to it isn't enough. The 'grab a snack' box had one crumpled cellophane package of peanut butter crackers. Yum."

Cons: "I appreciate the in-flight entertainment idea, but the execution leaves something to be desired."

Cons: "Personal entertainment did not work. Most first and business class airlines have a screen to see the movies."

Pros: "Flight was late"

Cons: "Thirty minute delay with pushback in San Francisco"

Pros: "service.snack"
Cons: "some folks didn't use ear phones watching shows so i had to hear annoying entail mentioned selections. I had ear plugs fortunately :) didn't find anything I'd watch in entertainment. enjoy learning/science/documentaries"

Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"

Pros: "Really fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The flight was really bumpy which I realize isn't anyone's fault but I couldn't wait till we landed...also they announced that as soon as we were at a certain altitude they would begin beverage service....which I was really looking forward too , and then ten minutes later they announced that they were cancelling beverage service."

Cons: "Everything was ok."

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "The food seemed overpriced for what it was. I passed as it didn't look very appealing."

Pros: "Only good thing was the flight was fast and on flight staff friendly."
Cons: "Flight to Denver was supposed to leave from Albuquerque at 9:55. Screen said flight was on time. No rep at desk and screen changes to Houston and only way we found out our flight was delayed because the plane was diverted to Durango is because another passenger called United. Finally at a quarter till 11am the screen at the gate changed back to Denver but still said 9:55am departure flight on time but united's website stated flight delayed till 11:55am. Upon return to Albuquerque from Denver bag was not on my flight so I had to hang out in Albuquerque although, I live an hour away because I have prescription meds in my checked bag I need to take 4 times daily. Would not fly United again"

Pros: "I liked the fact that it was a direct flight and the departure and arrival times were just perfect. I really liked the cookies they had. If I had wanted to use it, there was WiFi available."
Cons: "We took off late due to mechanical problems and I think the practice of allowing first class passengers to board first and then get in the way of other people trying to board later is inefficient."

Pros: "The flight was safe, the crew courteous. Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."
Cons: "Why persist in jamming people into seating that is uncomfortable and unhealthy."

Pros: "Okay crew."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seating. Departure time and gate changes."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "When traveling with a service animal, it's kind of a given that I would be seated where there would be room for my dog. My dog is 70 pounds. There was no room for him to sit in front of me. The flight attendant just says "he can't sit in the isle". I asked her where would you like him to go? She says "not in the isle". A 2nd attendant was able to move me to a front row where there was space for him to sit on the floor in front of me."

Pros: "This was for my in-laws and they were very happy and great full for all the help"

Pros: "The crew was very nice, the food was good and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The seats were terribly uncomfortable, and the WiFi was expensive. Plus, when I got to my destination, my suitcase has been damaged and a few items were missing."

Pros: "No problem flight"
Cons: "Announcements from cockpit inaudible"

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: "Left and got into destination early"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "Economy plus was nice."

Pros: "My first trip as a handicapped traveler. All airline staff made me feel comfortable and welcome."

Pros: "Was on a larger regional small jet. The service was great. Lots of legroom."

Pros: "I had lots of room, the flight was great"

Cons: "United double charged me for the same flight! When I called customer service I was left on hold for a long time and received no explanation or refund. Such a terrible airline experience."
