Cons: "Plane should have been clean due to Covid rules, but was not."
Pros: "I paid for a full seat and the person next to me was so overweight, I had the use of less than 2/3 of my seat. My rifgt shoulder, neck and back was very sore when I got off the plane from lack of any movement."
Cons: "Severely overweight people should not be forced onto another adult if they cannot fit in their own seat."
Cons: "With so many empty seats on the front. They decided to crunch everyone in the back without the minimal distance requested for social distancing. Very disappointed. Social distance is not practiced at AA as in Delta. Very sad. Will remember that next time I book a flight."
Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."

Cons: "The flight was canceled; why allow booking for a flight you plan to cancel. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."
Pros: "The food and the movies!"
Cons: "The air on the plane was stale and I could barely breathe the entire flight. I feel sick and light headed after that one."

Cons: "After getting us lined up for boarding we were told to wait due to maintenance."
Pros: "They let me sleep"
Cons: "Not enough food options"
Pros: "The entertainment system was nice. The cabin crew was nice."
Cons: "Airlines have gon back to the days of packing as many seats as possible into these planes. I not a big guy but not huge. I’m just over 6 feet. When I sat down it was impossible for me to sit without my knees jammed against the seat in front of me. I ended up switching with my daughter to the seat across the isle which had slightly more leg room. Overall the seating was very uncomfortable."
Cons: "The airline decided to randomize seating so boarding was an absolute mess, with families switching seats, understandably. Flight attendants didn’t help at all or try to de-escalate the issues. The bathrooms were dirty and unkept which is unacceptable for long flights."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "This was my first time on a British Airways flight and I wasn’t to pleased. I asked for a soft and the crew member took nearly an hour to bring me one. I was sitting in a crammed seat and to make it worse the tv wasn’t working. It was on but I couldn’t change any channel. It was over a 6 hour flight that seemed even longer."
Pros: "Kayak is taking people’s money by selling airlines tickets of airlines that doesn’t exist. I bought tickets for some airlines called Finnair and end up in the worse airline there is “American Airline” this is Not fare for clients, I refuse to flight Americans Airline, if I would have known I would have not buy this flight. 7 hours in a plane with no TV, no free drinks and the worse service. This is a trick, by using Finnair and then end up in AA! There is no Finnair, this is a lie! I am so disappointed about Kayak and won’t use it again. Thank you for rob me and trick me into the worse experience!"
Cons: "The trick the kayak used to put me in American Airlines, the worse Airline there is."
Cons: "Flight from Columbus was delayed due to crew member family emergency. AA said I would miss my connection in Charlotte. The only alternate connection was too late to complete the trip. I nearly canceled the trip. I reboarded and made my connection with 10 minutes to spare. Also, my destination (Greenville) was only 90 miles from Charlotte, the connecting airport (unbeknownst to me). AA should have offered the option of driving to my destination."
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Cons: "3rd flight in two weeks suck sitting next to a morbidly obese person. They should be forced to purchase two seats."
Pros: "Fast and efficient service"
Cons: "Not applicable"
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."
Pros: "The crew are always excellent."
Cons: "The comfort is horrible. Airline companies keep shrinking the seats and charging more. Also they keep serving less food. And flight changes."
Cons: "I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "The Crew was friendley."
Cons: "Could not checkin on internet."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "I truly enjoyed the flight attendants, the flight overall and the great price I got."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays! A few hours. There were liars among their staff!"
Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"
Cons: "bought ticket online for an Alaska Airlines flight 3 weeks prior to flight online, picked seat, too. When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."
Pros: "Readiness for take off was well organized and quick"
Pros: "On time dep/ arrival"
Cons: "Incompetente of Ground agent. Uninterested flight attendants in business class. Luckily it was a n In revenue ticket. Would never pay for that level of service."
Cons: "Older A321 plane, WIFI horrible and no seat back entertainment as on newer A321s"
Pros: "•Boarding was easy - small plane. •No crazy flight maneuvers, so I guess good pilots"
Cons: "•Cash only for drinks?! C'mon AA, it's 2017. •Charging for checked bags is greedy, I don't care if others do it, that's not a good excuse + Southwest doesn't charge. •Plane left 30 min late (and arrived 30 late), then had to sit on Tarmac waiting for a gate. •Placed us at the farthest bagged claim from our arrival gate (all bagge claims walking up to ours were empty), so thanks for thinking of the customer first there. •I reserved an aisle seat, they changed me to window without asking. Thanks. •Overall, there are too many other choices in airlines... I may just be one customer, but this is one less they'll have, as other major carriers haven't ever racked up this amount of annoyances in a single trip with me before."
Pros: "We booked Finnair, but it was a code share with AA. We stood in line at ticket counter for 1hr, and then was sent to AA. We almost missed our flight. We were there 3hr before our flight. Very confused!!! What is your suggestion? Should you say AA not Finnair???"

Pros: "I liked the smoothness of the flight"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "We were delayed by a mechanical then we waited another hour after that until they finally decided to take some people off because we were weight restricted. Then we waited another hour while they changed their minds and brought us back to the gate to get the people back. Then when we got into SFO at 1 am we had to wait because they had another plane parked at out gate."
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: "Bumping passengers with seated tickets so you can fly additional crew elsewhere is 100% unacceptable. Luckily I got on the flight last minute but only after dealing with extremely unprofessional staff/supervisors at the gate"
Cons: "There was no more room on the plane so me and 10 other passengers had to wait 3 hrs for next flight."
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: "Crew was nice and efficient it"

Cons: "To make meetings, got routed to Omaha, rented car and driving to SIoux Falls. United' best flights arrived next day about 2:30pm which misses business mtgs and most of day.

Pros: "fast"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "Spacious seating and friendly crew"

Cons: "Broken Restrooms"
Pros: "Contact me for more info"
Cons: "The plane temperature was ice cold and I was miserable the entire flight home"
Cons: "Plane 2.5 hours late"
Cons: "The lousy attitude, mediocre equipment, non-proactive planning to prepare for a known problem......overall, this is not the airline, I used to fly few years back. I think, United knows that there are not many options for New Jersey residents to fly anywhere, without being on UA flights so they take customers for granted.......Well, it won't be for too long, if they don't get their act together.......People will start driving to Philadelphia and find themselves other choices......"
Pros: "They got a wheelchair within 5 minutes."
Cons: "Delayed as usual with united airlines.Seems that every time I fly with United their is some kind of problem flying out of Denver.Every Time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Terrible flight. I payed for an upgraded seat, list my flight due to a crew on previous flight being late then was put on standby on this plane in a tiny seat next to someone else. We sat on the runway for 45 min. There was an open seat in row 1 that I could have been seated in, but no one offered"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "This was for my in-laws and they were very happy and great full for all the help"
Cons: "My flight was canceled numerous times. The only good part was that, after the 1000th cancellation, I was moved to a non-stop flight."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. And the wine was good."
Cons: "I paid for 2 round trip tickets and because my son was not there for the first leg, they resold the seat. So they got my money and the other person's money for the same seat. I wanted both seats and paid for both seats. It is theft and should not be allowed. The flight attendant was extremely rude and dismissive. It is a poor practice. You could have at least asked first before rebooking the seat. At least have offered compensation or something. I probably would have said yes Anyway. It's the principle of the process being wrong to the consumer which only benefits the corporation."
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: "Flight attendant was welcoming and fun."
Cons: "It was a smaller plane and being in the very last row meant I smelled the bathroom. The door was literally within arms reach."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delays. Courteous staff."
Pros: "Economy plus was nice."
Pros: "Landing was excellent"
Pros: "I had lots of room, the flight was great"
Pros: "Great crew, nice aircraft to fly!"
Pros: "The seats were very spacious and comfortable. The flight was very smooth not a lot of turbulence was present and the weather was good which contributed to the smooth flight. I flew economy but even we were treated to a snack and drinks."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "nothing my plane was canceled"
Cons: "that my trip was canceled"
