Airline reviews

"The reply O gave before was meant for last leg of my flight from Tokyo on American Airlines to Dallas Forth Worth Intl."

"For auch a short flight it is annoying the number of announcements, mainly because you have a 30 to 35 mins flight and you music or movie stop for every announcement. They announced a drink service that never happened (understandable for such a short flight, but don’t bother me from sleeping or listening to music or watching a movie with and announcement we have to disregard) The crew was good… I feel bad for them having to push the credit cards so hard (also annoying) I did like the video of the safety features better than the old fashioned presentations"

"Very narrow seating"

"The flight was fine. I didn’t have any food or drink, but I believe they offered the usual cookie or pretzels and standard beverages. The crew was very friendly. The seats - like seats on just about all airlines - are a bit cramped - but I was relatively comfortable and the plane was clean. I’d fly American again for sure."

"Worst airline experience of my life, depending on how the rest of my “customer service” experience goes I may never fly american airlines again."

"Maintenance delay for 2 hours after Canceling my flight earlier in the week. So typical for this poorly run airline. Will make better choices for future flights."

"Communication and updates and leaving on time."

"So much fun to be delayed 3.5 hours so you land at 12:12 a.m. CT and then discover there are planes stacked on the tarmac but no open gates. We’ve been sitting in a hot plane for 1:20 and have no estimate when we’ll get a gate. This was poor gate management by American Airlines and DFW. Every AA flight I am on of late has been problematic at best."

"Plane smelled a little funny. Flight was 30 minutes shorter than expected, but gate was occupied when we arrived. Staff was great."

"Comfort, I wish they would warn to take covid test a day before instead of last min I wouldn’t miss my First flight"

"This American Airlines strike is wack. Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the flight crew didn’t show up. Extremely disappointing."

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

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "When we did get in the air, the flight seemed to go quickly and we got there fast."
Cons: "I upgraded to 1st class for both flights but the plane seating was very dismal and hadn't been upgraded in either of these planes for a long time. After we boarded the plane we were told that no drink, snacks or food would be offered. The attendant shut off the lights as soon as we got in the air and kept it dark in the cabin until 10 minutes before we landed. She never came around to check on us once or ask if we needed anything. I was so thirsty when we landed. I have decided that I will either go back to United Airlines or check out the 1st class options at American Airlines better next time. This might not have been their fault, I'm not sure what it was, but the flight was late landing and we took off an hour late as well which really put me behind schedule."

Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."

Pros: "The crew did great"
Cons: "During covid-19 they are not even attempting at providing a modicum of social distancing. Every seat in both of my flights was completely filled, meaning that we were squished up next to everyone despite any efforts to stay 6ft away from each other in the airports. Many passengers were wearing their masks incorrectly (not covering their nose, TAKING OFF THE MASK TO SNEEZE) and were not being asked to wear their mask properly by staff. I felt completely unsafe and won't be flying American again until there is a vaccine for covid."

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Crew"

Pros: "Easy"
Cons: "All was good."

Pros: "The flight back to Columbus made up for the flight from CLT to SJC."
Cons: "This was a multi city, round trip starting out of CLT. My connection was way too close, and we missed the connection due to a mechanical problem. The lines to get vouchers were super long, and the hotel was not the best. It was way after midnight when I got to the hotel, and I did not feel safe staying at a Quality Inn. I had to walk to my room outside, and had leave in the morning in the dark as well. I was traveling alone. Please put your passengers in a better hotel, closer to the airport. I did not expect that from American Airlines."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight boarded twenty minutes late despite the plane being at the gate early scheduled departure. Baggage took another forty minutes to load. Then they decided there we were overweight (data that should be known before the cargo was loaded) and off loaded two people. Then after another delay they realised that off loading people meant off loading their baggagge, total delay nearly 2 hours The hedset socket on the entertainment system did not work The USB port did not work THey ran out of food after serving three rows, loaded four sandwiches, no wraps and 2 cheese plates for a full evening flight that was over 5 hours in duration including the delays."

Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The American Airlines crew in Houston gave multiple people the wrong information regarding checked luggage for our connecting flight. Because the flight from NYC was over an hour delayed and the misinformation, several people missed the connecting flight. Hobby closes at a certain hour so I now have to wait until tomorrow morning to retrieve my carry on luggage the American Airlines MADE me check because of the group I was in. I called American Aurlines customer service line and they were not helpful. I will never fly American again."

Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."

Cons: "First flight TUS to DFW was delayed by 3 hours causeing us to mist all the remaining flights. Had to scramble to find other flights DFW to LHR and LHR to DUB. We arrived at our destination 10 hours. No reason for the delay was given. Lousey service on AA."

Cons: "I could not pre-check or request different seats on the CP website. I think that this was because of issues with the website, apparently due to IT system communication between American Airlines and Cathay Pacific.......on all six flights. On the transfer in San Francisco, Customs was closed when we arrived in San Francisco and we had to haul all of our baggage from one terminal to the other. There was no direction on how to handle this issue of Customs being closed while on the flight to San Francisco. I had to explain the issue of to the CP customer service crew in SF. The CP desk and they had never heard of it. American Airlines was equally poorly trained. I will also say that while at the CP customer service, there were three young adult males that we're not busy at the time and the watched us unload the baggage carts onto the scales and conveyor and then reloaded on to the carts to push to the AA terminal. We handled the bags two additional times because the CP staff did not know what to do and how to handle it. Other passengers were confused as well."

Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."

Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."

Pros: "I like the in-flight attendants as they are courteous even though it was late night flight. I cannot complain at all."
Cons: "Gate agent refused to try to put my 9-year-old son to sit next to me. She said "It's full flight" right out of the bat. Well, even if that's the fact of the matter, at least, be kind in responding to customer's inquiry. My son was seated across the isle, same row, but in reality the row was not even straight. And as a little boy, he cannot sleep straight and he has to lean to a stranger's shoulder? Thankfully I got a nice gent who should have sat next to him who were so kind to exchange seat with me. It's all in the attitude.... hopefully my attitude is not as bad :-) But maybe the gate agent was so tired for it was the last flight from ONT, at 1 AM. Bless her heart! Thank you though for your help to get the plane leave on time.!"

Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."

Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, even with the blankets we were given."

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in counter made fun of my surname. Bad start but not noteworthy unless combined with the rest of the experience. The flight was delayed causing me to miss another AA connection by minutes. Waited in line to be told I wouldn't get on a flight til the following day, they couldn't help with accommodation and I wouldn't receive my luggage until the following day. In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."

Pros: "The fact that the plane landed."
Cons: "American Airlines is running neck and neck with United, competing for the world’s worst airline. They have crammed so many seats onto their planes that I’m surprised it isn’t a health hazard. I was in an aisle seat and every time I started to fall asleep, someone going down the aisle slammed into me, making any sort of rest impossible. And the flight attendants had the typical U.S. flight attendant perma-rage, of course. I feel sorry for them, underpaid and overworked, but always p***ed off. Anerican Airlines needs to look at Emirates and other non-U.S. carriers to learn how to treat their passengers."

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: "The seat was comfortable for such s long flight (~10 hrs). The selection of movies/television/music for personal use was exceptional. Being provided a lightweight blanket & small pillow a nice touch. Beverage service and a small unexpected VIP of ice cream a very nice surprise!"
Cons: "Didn't like being served dinner-type food (pasta & salad) late morning….but I shouldn't complain since it was a privilege yo be served a meal.Didn't like being told my window shade had to be closed I chose a window seat so I could look out the window and have natural light. It was daytime. As there was no one sitting next to me, I ultimately kept the shade partway open. I could tell the crew was irritated. Several hours later, a different FA came over and just shut my shade; I reopened it. What a stupid tug of war."

Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "AA gate crew checked my bag at the gate, but to the wrong person!! I missed my flight because I had to go find it in baggage claim, take a taxi to another terminal, hoof it across the terminal to TSA pre-check which was 45 people deep and slow as a snail, then run to the gate (which was at the ooooother end I originally entered through). I missed my flight literally by 3 minutes. There was no one at the gate to help me, AA staff kept telling me to go to different places, getting a new flight was INSANE. The whole experience was a pure nightmare."

Pros: "Very friendly, constantly hard working crew. They didn't stop moving through the cabin for the whole flight. Swift boarding."
Cons: "Extremely poor food. Airline food is rarely enjoyable but I had two mouthfuls of my pasta and left the rest even though I was hungry. Dreadful "entertainment " system. 4 tiny screens over the centre row is seats showed the in flight movies. This on a transatlantic flight. What decade are American Airlines in?! The fleet look like they date back to the '90's at best!!"

Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"

Pros: "Started when 7 am flight from Knoxville was delayed - multiple times until finally at 4 PM there were no options. Nobody with AA saying a single word all this time even when asked. Finally called their customer service line only to learn that I could get on another flight that left in a few minutes. Door was still open but gate agent argued with the lady on 800 line about who could ticket faster. By time they finished arguing the door closed. That began a 14 hour nightmare of bumping between flights and delays and the inevitable lost luggage. Paid for $300 hotel room at Vancouver that I will get to stay in for 4 hours. Will NEVER fly American again"
Cons: "Service, poor rebooking process, lack of communication."

Pros: "The service from flight attendants very goood. Even the chicken dinner was as good as many restaurants serve with tastey sauce and cooked just right with nice tossed salad and even apple pie desert. We got served free beverage 3 times on 9 hour flight from Paris to Dallas. The entertainment options were amazing: So many new movies or video games or e-reader were added plus with individual screen in front of each seat! They will be my first choice. New seats also had extra padding and were more comfortable! Wow1"
Cons: "A little more leg room would be nice."

Pros: "The entire fly, connections, food and both crews excelente. Flight on time."

Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "Thought the first row seating would provide extra leg room which the reservation page said it would and we paid extra for the seats - not so. it also felt quite claustrophobic with a panel within a short distance of our faces. We had upgraded for better seats but it turns out the seating wasn't better at all. The flight home in seats much further back were MUCH more comfortable. I'm thinking the airline shouldn't book the front seats by the panel as 'better' for the extra price as they were definitely not."

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

Pros: "Standard flight , however I can't believe what most passengers bring on as cabin baggage !!"
Cons: "Evening meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable and considering that they co-share with Qantas , American could learn about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"

Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"

Cons: "Several consecutive issues delayed our start, then had a weather hold before we could descend. VERY crowded, got stuck with a window seat with a very large man next to me--better than B or D, at least."

Pros: "The onboard crew was amazing. No problems there. The flight was decent."
Cons: "Both ways I had delayed trips. On my way back my first flight was running late. So arriving at my connecting airport I literally had to RUN clear across be airport and the attendant tells me I was a "no show". So I would have to wait and go on a different flight. The plane was still there. It was 25 minutes before take off time. And she rerouted me onto a different aircraft in which I had to RUN to the other side of the airport again. Only to find out this flight was delayed for 45 minutes. In which adding on to me already delayed flight. I understand some things are out of everyone's control. But the lady made me feel like I was just looking around in shops instead of being where I needed. Never again."

Pros: "Seat spacing was good, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Nothing for this flight"

Cons: "Engine was super loud on takeoff - to the point where passengers were looking around worried that something wasn't right. Eventually it seemed to be switched off once we hit the clouds and we seemed to sort of coast quietly for a minute or so - also alarming to everyone judging by the non-verbal behavior that suddenly everyone was exhibiting. Then it came back on again but only at half the volume. Nothing was mentioned about it by the captain or crew so I spent the rest of the flight wondering if the engine was going to give out part way through the 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: "Nice crew, quick boarding, good snack options"
Cons: "Easier to use free wifi"

Cons: "An out delayed with one update from the pilot. Sitting on the tarmac with no AC for an hour."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Not much"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Cleaner lavatories"

Pros: "Flight on time, bigger plane, more comfortable seats, my internet didn't work, I asked for help, still waiting."
Cons: "They made me pay twice for luggage, I pay once in Halifax, right through to Dallas. I missed Connection, therefore left next day, they charged me again, a total cost of $250.00 USD for baggage and hotel charges"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The tray cannot be pullled closer for eating. The seat sitting up is very uncomfortable for reading. I would have liked a pillow. Th poor man in front of me asked for a coke after the meal service was done, and the flight attendant said she had to reserve it for the next flight?! The male announcer flight attendant was very hard to understand, some of his words were slurred and garbled. And the volume was always too loud for both the male and female announcers. There was no entertainment unless you downloaded the app."

Pros: "Not much to like. The flight was okay."
Cons: "Not having free Wi-Fi and sound on the entertainment.I We could have been offered complimentary snacks as well with the beverage."

Cons: "Kayak should be ashamed to think that such a short international connection through ord would work. Shame shame shame. Never booking with you again."

Cons: "It was HORRIBLE. They had to book us on another flight to Houston and then to Dallas because there were no more direct flights. We arrived at the check in counter at 10 AM. Flight left at 10:40. We were only 5 minutes late for the cutoff after a 15 hour flight with delays that were NOT our fault but were the fault of the airline itself. Our seats were terrible going back and they did not even offer us any kind of voucher to help with the added time and stress of having to wait for another flight and take an extra one."

Pros: "That i finally got hom"
Cons: "I called bc of weather issues, and it said you may have a wait time more than 30 minutes. I waited 2 hrs and 45 mins without any update on how much longer it would be. The website told me to go to the airport the day before to see a representative. I went to the airport and they told me call back or come back the next day. Information was all inaccurate and after another 55 min wait on the phone (stated “more than 30 mins) i got an agent and rebooked my ticket."

Pros: "There was a fair amount of leg room."
Cons: "Boarding could be a little frustrating because groups 3 4 5 were 1 lane and there wasn't a lot of room in the airport. Also, there wasn't a lot of time to get from one side of the airport to the other to stop at the restroom and get a real meal, since there was nothing served on the previous flight. Due to turbulence there was nothing served on the flight, which is beyond the control of the crew. They knrw ahead of time about the turbulence, perhaps they could have quickly passed out pretzels or cookie before the flight took off."

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact that you had to pay for in flight entertainment. Too many offer it complimentary so this is a negative for me."

Pros: "Service, comfort and inflight entertainment"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The transparency of the pilot as to what was causing all of fhe delays."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay. First, the plane was running late from San Francisco (about 2 hours late). The second delay was due to someone putting way too much fuel in the plane so we had to wait for the excess fuel to be removed. Then the flight attendants ended their shift so we had to wait for another crew that was flying in from Denver. This involved us having to remove all of our things from the overhead bin and get off the plane and re-board about an hour and half later. I was supposed to make it to Dallas at 8:45 and instead didn't make it until after 12:30. It was extremely inconvenient and unpleasant. I have not experienced such a nightmare before with any previous airlines."

Pros: "The flight and the flight attendant was amazing. Very professional and accommodating...you could tell she enjoys her job. She also discreetly handed me an extender...very nice."
Cons: "I did not like having to put my own bag on the travel cart. I wasn't expecting to have to check my bag at the last minute. Someone at United need a to warn potential passengers the limited space on the plane. I felt like others that we were the Jolly Green Giant."

Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized.  Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines.  Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."

Cons: "I was allowed only 1 bag to carry on when both my bag & purse would have clearly fit underneath the seat in front of me. Makes no sense. Also other airlines don't require you to check in at the counter if you're not checking a bag. Why would United want all passengers at their ticket counter or kiosk? Ridiculous!"

Cons: "The seating is cramped but to be expected in coach. No big deal."

Pros: "An attractive, attentative crew"
Cons: "Snacks sucked"

Pros: "United sucks Erik Balodis Bahrainseabee@gmail.com Please contact me"
Cons: "United sucks Erik Balodis Bahrainseabee@gmail.com Please contact me"

Pros: "Everyone was friendly, flight was on time checking in at kiosk was very efficient no complaints . I would recommend Kayak and United to friends and family"

Pros: "fast"
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "As long as United still provides snacks and doesn't charge for carryons I will definitely be flying them again. Their staff was great, the flight was a bit turbulent but everything g was great otherwise."

Pros: "the flight crew was awesome! Very patient with difficult passengers."
Cons: "People had the usual trouble with the overhead bins - I think staff should be more restrictive regarding letting people take on bags that are too large. More gate-checking of things larger than a backpack would speed boarding process."

Pros: "The leg room was much better on this plane. I was comfortable and enjoyed my trip."
Cons: "Food and entertainment was not provided."

Pros: "First time but I like it"
Cons: "Good experience"

Cons: "Delay and then having to change gates - at O"Hare that means walking and walking some more !! After being insulted during check in. The RUDE woman (poor English) with assisted boarding then the RUDE man that changed my name and my luggage he chose to send to Dayton OH -never been there in my life and he "dug" thru my luggage - as if he was searching for MONEY or GOLD -he pulled out a protein drink and I asked him to hand that to me so I could drink it as I am a diabetic - he shouted at me "I THROW AWAY'. During the two hour delay I could have used it !! Poor service I will fly American from now on !!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "That was okay. Crew was nice. Food bad"

Cons: "It's delay I'm still here in denver"

Cons: "The flight was delayed over 4 hours. The seats are horribly uncomfortable. My flight was supposed to take off at 8:30 pm and it is past midnight and we are now taxing back to the gate."

Pros: "Boarding and overhead space was good."
Cons: "Too hot."

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: "Everything went like clockwork, the announcements, the boarding, the take off, the landing and the on time arrival. This trip was an example of how things should go."

Cons: "Even though I was on business class, I could not use the lounge at United . They said Luftansa do not pay pay for local connections."

Pros: "The first class accommodations were great, my only issue was that the entertainment required an app!"
Cons: "Required an app to get any video."

Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours. I had a two hour drive after which got me in bed at 4:30 AM instead of 1:00 AM. Had to work that day which made it hard to function. Usually great, but was disappointed they didn't offer anything to us for such an inconvenience."

Pros: "The crew was nice and expedient."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable seats I've ever sat in. Like sitting on rocks but worse. No snacks or drinks available during flight."

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: "Overall service."
Cons: "Impolite Lady Gate Agent."

Pros: "Nonstop"
Cons: "Middle Seat"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, boarding was efficient, you got a whole can of your preferred drink without request."
Cons: "Not a lot of leg space, the trail mix snack(ranch flavored?) was gross."

Cons: "Agent at the counter didn't look into my passport properly so when I landed in Dfw they rejected so I couldn't fly international so I had to buy another ticket and fly back to denver. Cost me my time and money which I could have avoided only if your ticket agent checked my passport properly knowing about my international flight. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of leg room, flight attendants were attentive and took care of drinks and made several trips to picked up garbage."
Cons: "I was told the wifi was available on my return flight but I could not get it to come on."

Pros: "Perfect flight"
Cons: "Was charged $50 for my 42lb luggage"

Pros: "A gentleman at check in was very helpful."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were traveling with our almost 2 year old and were assigned seats apart from each other."

Pros: "I found my seat with no problem."
Cons: "The flight left Houston late. The check in process was fine, we were asked to check our bags because the flight was full. Once on board and seated the flight attendant came on and said there were 5 bags without the proper tags for people to claim. How could they have improper tags when the person at the gate was giving the tags out? Four bags were claimed and with 1 bag (blue) left the flight attendants asked us 3 more times "whose bag it was?". When no one claimed the bag one more person from United came down the isle holding the bag asking everyone one last time. I heard him say "I was told to do this". At this time 4 more people boarded late. I thought after a certain amount of time boarding would end?"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable & cabin crew was very attentive to our needs."
Cons: "1. Unloading baggage in Richmond took over 20 minutes, and the plane was an Embraer biz jet. That's unsatisfactory. 2. The total flight time, including taxi and takeoff, was over 3 hours but all we were served for food was a cheese plate. For first class air fare we should at least have gotten a sandwich or wrap."

Pros: "Excellent ground and aircraft staff."

Pros: "Crew was nice , seat was ok."
Cons: "The employee at the desk by the gate in Houston could’ve been more polite. Several noticed she was actively avoiding speaking to customers with a question"

Cons: "The pilot could have shown up on time so that the flight would not have been delayed. If certain seating classes of passengers do not get permitted a carry-on that needs to be communicated better. I had to check a bag that contains over $5000 worth of computer and photography equipment."

Cons: "My original flight was cancel 4 hours in advance, it was efficiently reschedule after trying for 30 min to contact dam customers service with US"

Cons: "1 hr delay waiting for pilot to get through customs while sitting on plane"

Cons: "Cabin too hot"

Cons: "Poor planning and I start thinking to move to use Delta instead"

Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule, bags make up quickly."
Cons: "No PSA Pre at this small airport."

Pros: "On time. Flight crew was great"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant Dirty plane"

Pros: "Conveniently ent boarding"
Cons: "No coffee offered"

Pros: "Flight staff was pleasant and welcoming. Communicated well. Very professional."
Cons: "I know you can't control this...the turbulence was nerve wracking."

Pros: "Flight attendant on the flight that was almost 4 hours late tried to cheer people up."
Cons: "4 hours late! Missed connection at DFW! No staff to assist with wheelchair request at DFW! No staff to assist with lodging at DFW! Rudeness in rebooking, rudeness next morning when wheelchair request did not transfer to next morning's flight! The worst experience I've had on American in years (and after almost 2 million miles flown with them)."

Pros: "Just about average."
Cons: "Just about average."

Pros: "An adequate flight with few issues but nothing outstanding about the service."
Cons: "Wish there was more leg room and rest rooms in the cabin. Checking in was quick but there were no smiles and minimal assistance from crew."

Pros: "I fly every month to and from Georgia and United constantly has delays… Every single flight."

Pros: "Speedy!"

Pros: "Although departure as delayed, pilot made up most of the time enroute"
Cons: "On longest leg the wifi entertainment system failed"

Pros: "The actual flight was ok the ce"

Pros: "The staff and crew of United were very helpful. They went above and beyond to keep us updated and provide services to keep us occupied."
Cons: "I have no complaints"

Pros: "Crew tried to be make up for all aircraft shortcomings and were really nice"
Cons: "Seat trays were falling apart. Windows were dirty They had a family move to another seat because there were few oxygen masks in that seat"

Pros: "Going through security was a breeze. We were sent to precheck,which is like being upgraded."
Cons: "The plane is so small and the aisles are very tight,"

Cons: "Second time between EVV and ORD. First time going to Vegas through these airports, the flight had to be cancelled due to maintance issues. Delayed for over 7 hours to get to Vegas, sucked tremendously bad. Flight back home, same thing . This time they had an alternative plane to give us but delayed for over an hour until they declared the original plane dead and another one given. So FML. I just want to get there and back without maintenance problems, not weather, not nothing, plane broke twice on the same trip."

Pros: "It was nice arriving for once before the scheduled time."

Pros: "i love. united"
Cons: "hot plane wxtremely uncomfortable"

Cons: "Flight was 5 hours late taking off"

Pros: "Perfect sized plane for the ride from Houston to St. Louis. Couldn't ask for better!"

Pros: "The crew--Steve and Paula were very nice. Very attentive?"

Pros: "Greatest flight few passengers just need more comfortable seats but not complaining"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "The fact that we were kept up to date with tge delayed connecting flight from Hattiesburg. And that we eventually made our connecting flight to Dubai albeit by the skin of our nose.."
Cons: "The fact that the connecting flight from Hattiesburg was delayed. And it seems to be a regular occurence as it was the case two weeks earlier too."

Pros: "Flight attendant was perfectly nice and crew tried to get us out of Halifax as quickly as possible despite the air traffic delay at Newark"
Cons: "Airplane felt outdated and check in counter agents could not look less interested"

Pros: "Efficient, pleasant staff on the ground and in the air."
Cons: "The plane's interior needs a renovation. Old and cramped. Good thing I was married to the girl sitting beside me."

Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "The boarding is so tedious . First this one then that. My seat did not recline"

Cons: "My flight was delayed 2 hours due to snow. Therefore, I arrived to the airport 1.5 hours before my new schedule time of departure. Because I only checked in 40 minutes before the original flight (which was changed 12 hours ago without an email alert) they refused to let me check in to the flight."

Cons: "Flight was delayed. United assured me in SDF that ISH would provide me with a hotel room At IAH they would not give me a hotel room"

Cons: "An hour late"

Pros: "Convenient and close to home only a 35 minute drive to get home."
Cons: "Seats don't recline."

Cons: "The cost of a one-year-old great from BWI to Denver plus $169. The cost of an upgrade for this flight from Houston to BWY was $589. Please explain that United. This is one and a half times the original cost of my ticket."

Cons: "Man to big for the seat took half of mind i had to move to a available seat which was in the back of the plane not fair when you pay for a whole seat and you get half make over large people buy two seats"

Cons: "Connecting flight was late"

Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the staff seemed very competent."
Cons: "The seats are VERY UNCOMFORTABLE and crowded."

Cons: "That I had to pay extra for a bag!!!"

Pros: "I'm filling this out in the hotel I had to get since my flight from philly to dallas wasn't on time. Unles's I get some kind of compensation I will never fly AA again."
Cons: "The airline, I doubt this will even get read. I have a feeling that this survey is to put some false sense of security into the people flying your airline. Like you are working hard to make sure this doesnt happen again. So far with your airline I have spent 12, 10, and 9 hours at this very same airport waiting for a plane. And my bag was damaged on my flight from dallas to philly. So I gotta buy a new bag as well wich is a carry on size but because my flight was over booked I had to check it while boarding. You have taken enough hard earned $ from me. This won't happen again."

Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom!"
Cons: "No complaints!"

Cons: "The AC was not working. The seat was very uncomfortable"

Cons: "My seat was double booked even though I had paid for the seat. We were already on the plane and discovered that someone was in my seat. I was travelling with my family and we were told that one of us had to get off. My daughter graciously offered to get off so that I would not miss the important event we were going to. She missed most of the event as a result. My husband and I took the rental car to get to our event. She had no transportation and had to beg for the airline to pay for transportation to the event. We should not have to incur an $88 expense because United messed up. How can we depend on our tickets to get us somewhere on time when you sell it to me and then resell it to another person? This should be considered illegal. I could not do this in my business. On the return trip, my daughter who was going to New York City found out that her seat had been given to a passenger who had been delayed the day before by the Tornado. She was told that there no flights available and she would most likely have to stay overnight. She had several important meetings the next day and would have missed all of them. By luck, she did fly out at 8:30 P.M. after spending the day in the Grand Rapids airport. My husband, my other daughter and I flew out 1 1/2 hours late. We have no intention of flying United in the future and will let as many people as possible know about our experience. Thank you."

Pros: "Everything!"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to weather and then customer service put me on a delta flight from Houston to Minneapolis 45 minutes later which makes no sense if it was cancelled due to weather how come I was able to fly to Minneapolis Minnesota and not Des Moines Iowa. Earlier that afternoon we didn't have a crew or captain so I know it wasn't due to weather the radar was clear."

Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, lumpy cushions."
