Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Fog in Philly. AA should have diverted our plane to a bigger airport where AA could have serviced us (eg. Washington DC). Instead AA diverted us to Salibury/Ocean City!! We missed our connections."
Pros: "Seat was o.k. Loved that captain made periodic announcements, esp to point out Niagara Falls ."
Cons: "It was a very good flight. I had a tired back.... suspect it's because I'm short, (5 ft tall) seats are somewhat uncomfortable."
Cons: "Had abnormally long delays today!! Added 4.5 hours to my flight today"
Pros: "My wife and I chose premium economy for the long flight from L.A. to Sydney. I believe it was well worth paying for the differential level of service."
Pros: "On time. Fast boarding. Comfortable seating."
Pros: "On time and quick boarding process"
Cons: "The attendants at the gates could have been more pleasant"
Pros: "that it's over."
Cons: "sat on tarmac for 45 minutes! AFTER landing... unacceptable."
Pros: "Nice crew! Specifically remember Monica"
Cons: "Boarding was inconvenient and the plane was half empty, leaving the majority of the passengers in the back. I’m sure it’s because of weight distribution but it’s still kind of annoying."
Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Pros: "Good plane with excellent crew."
Cons: "Bulkhead seat in Main Cabin Extra was a nightmare. One has to be in cirque du soleil to navigate through breakfast in the extra small tray."
Pros: "Had to take three flights to get from Maine to California. All were on time or ahead of schedule. Flight attendants did exceptional work on each flight."
Cons: "My left ear still won’t clear but other than that nothing."
Pros: "Macy in the first class cabin was friendly, attentive and very efficient."
Cons: "Ticket was never issued."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "The food was better than other international flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "A “broken plane?” Are you kidding me? This was the explanation for a 3 hour delay. A European connection should have either rigorous maintenance routine and/or records or there should be planes ready to fill a unexpected need."
Cons: "There was a high school sports team that were very rowdy and nosiy on this red eye flight. The flight crew made them sit down (as they kept getting up and turning around) but did nothing to try and keep them quiet. I was exhausted and had been flying for 24 hours already and was kept awake and annoyed by this group. No drink or snack service was provided becasue it was a red eye flight but I was kept awake by the rowdy kids and could have really used it!"
Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."
Cons: "Flight got Delayed but they were efficient enough to get an alternate flight as fast as possible"
Pros: "The airplane is new"
Cons: "The crew was terrible, so rude, really I don’t understand why there are like that. Is like asking a favor for everything . The seat are to short of space and uncorfortable"
Pros: "After the nearly 9 hours of delays, the seemingly hastily assembled crew appeared to be equally annoyed, but got us through to MIA."
Cons: "Same. The flight crew and stewards were mostly also angry in demeanor."
Cons: "This flight was miserable. Seriously, one of the worst flight experiences I've ever had. The leg room was absurdly small. I'm not a tall person and I only had one inch in front of my legs. When the guy in front of me put his seat back it pressed into my knees. There wasn't enough space to bend down and untie my shoes, let alone get something out of my bag. My shoulder and knee were touching the guy next to me (a complete stranger) for the entire flight and there was nothing I could do about it. This was a red-eye but I absolutely could not sleep because it was so uncomfortable, so when we landed I had a terrible migraine and was nauseous and disoriented going through customs. I actually had to sit down in the airport because I though I was gonna pass out while trying to carry my bag, that's how shitty I felt after this flight. On top of that, not being able to sleep on the flight really messed up my sleep schedule and so jet lag from the time change has been made even worse, so I'm completely out of whack and its so much worse that it otherwise would have been because of the horrible flight. Also the food was gross and there wasn't enough of it. Even now, I don't think I have really communicated just how shitty this flight was. I was actually angry when I saw my seat upon boarding, and I'm still angry about it now."
Pros: "extra leg room but I had to pay for it"
Cons: "This should only be used for important communications. And to not offer food on a 6 hour flight is horrible."
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."
Cons: "Finding checked luggage at philadelphia airport. Inadequate signs and helpful people. It was very hard on my wife who is disabled to walk to the luggage carousel and we didnt see anyone who could help with disabilities."
Pros: "Friendly Crew, short and easy trip."
Cons: "I wish that there were tv's built in, entertainment."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."
Pros: "It was quick and easy."
Pros: "The Boarding Was Fast And Easy, The Flight Was Even Early And On Time! The Crew Was Very Nice."
Cons: "There Was No Entertainment For A Almost 2 Hr Flight."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Plane is dated and a little crowded"
Cons: "I bought tickets for JAL Japan Airlines but it was American Airlines !! If I know that when I buy tickets I don't buy it !! I will not buy tickets at KYAK anymore."
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "snacks and beverages..."
Pros: "Great free Wi-Fi with a variety of movies to watch. Helpful, friendly crew."
Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."
Pros: "Spacious seats, excellent service and the food was great for an aeroplane meal. Lots of bathrooms and I was always able to access food and water."
Cons: "They still use the dual port for headphones for the entertainment system so you are unable to use your own headphones. I didn't watch anything because of this."
Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"
Cons: "It was one hour late."
Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"
Pros: "Everything went smooth"
Pros: "It got there on time!"
Cons: "I would never fly with them again, the staff were rude and you must pay for everything, at least let people us the WiFi"
Pros: "Movies were available to watch."
Pros: "La puntualidad y responsabilidad del bpersonal de abordo."
Cons: "LOs espacios entre asientos son bastante reducidos."
Pros: "Excellent customer service. Good food."
Cons: "Didn't realize that codeshare meant operation by another airline, so we waited in line to up at the wrong counter, in the wrong terminal and then had to schlep our baggage to the right one. Good thing we were early."
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."
Pros: "The water"
Cons: "After the whole ordeal with the first flight, I get on my second flight, which was only an hour. Something happened with the air on the plane and it was sweltering the whole flight. Really hot and uncomfortable! The day, overall was very taxing - I paid $521 for a ticket and expected a good experience . I guess that was too much to ask for. I am disappointed in American Airlines and will NEVER fly that airline again - nor will any of my family."
Pros: "I liked the flight, the cabin crew was great, and the pilot nailed their landing."
Cons: "The big one is that when we tried to check in with Qantas, we were informed that we needed to check in with American Airlines and could not check in. Had we not been to the airport 2.5 hours early, we would have had a great shot at missing our flight because of this.As it was, we only had 15 extra minutes from when we got to the gate from when we boarded. Even this email you just sent to me said "rate your Qantas Flight", not rate your American Airlines flight coshared by Qantas. The other big gripe is that we sat on the tarmac for way longer than I would have expected. LAX Sucks."
Cons: "I thought I booked a QANTAS flight but I was thrown on a very terrible American Airlines flight. Would not recommend."
Pros: "Crew was super nice."
Cons: "Bathroom was horrible and smelled very bad. Flight was delayed and delayed."
Pros: "World class"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the pilot decided to (after the doors were closed and ready to go) unload and reload cargo and board more people. So based on their decision, we were even further delayed and subsequently missed our connection in sydney. United has offered no compensation either for our change fee in sydney nor for the stress they added to our vacation - on a Christmas flight nonetheless!"
Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."
Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "More leg room on Swiss Air flight I ended up getting rebooked on and smaller plane seating only 2 on the sides, so much better than bigger Air Canada plane on outbound flight to Europe"
Cons: "Again, I did not make the DC flight,not delayed as an email had announced but closed at least 20 mins prior to departure, so no one was let in (after running through Zurich airport, again, no help). Rebooking possible and easy for my route, difficult for those going to DC and further west."
Cons: "Plane was clean. Leg room was adequate for a 6 footer. Wafer cookie was good. Crew was nice."
Cons: "We had a 45 minute maintenance delay. After, there was a medical emergency (NOT the crew's fault) leading to an additional1.5 hr delay. I didn't appreciate how much the crew shared about the patient's status over the intercoms--felt like a violation. There were also numerous long comms throughout th"
Pros: "The entire trip, other than the delay in Dallas was easy & uneventful. There was enough time between flights to allow going through transport & security to the next gate. Food & service was great! Awesome teams on Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Nothing, really. The ticket prices were great for travel from southern United States to Central Europe!"
Pros: "Because we took a bus to the plane boarding was fast - no boarding groups just whomever got off the bus first (me) got on first (me). I love the small planes with one seat on the left and 2 seats on the right. It's great when you don't know if you want aisle or window, you can get both in one."
Cons: "Newark Airport is the worst, and that is not United's fault. However, I'm new to the experience of 'boarding' onto a bus that then takes us to load onto the plane from the Tarmac. Small plane - no frills like wifi, magazines but still a 2+ hour flight."
Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."
Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."
Pros: "Not much, no internet, small seats, cost doubled because I had to know pay hotel for a night."
Cons: "Flight was 4 hrs late arriving, therefore I missed my connection flight to Dallas. I had to spend the night at a cost of $200.00 at Holiday Inn, arrived 24 hrs later. Not United fault, weather related. This is my 3rd United flight that was delayed by hours. Get first flight out in morning, less chance for hours of delay."
Cons: "My baggage was lost."
Pros: "except for a young steward who smiled kindly"
Cons: "the other crew that served us had no smiles or eye contact. an incident even happened with a passenger that could have been avoided if the crew was friendlier"
Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"
Pros: "More space, better flight attendants, 3 free meals and free alcoholic beverages. It’s all good."
Cons: "Nothing, loved it."
Cons: "I landed in Terminal 5 at LAX, so I walked 20 minutes to the International Terminal and waited in line at the Austrian Airlines counter for 45 minutes. When my turn came, I was told that Austrian does NOT fly to London. After a while, they figured out I was on a Unites flight, so I had to walk to terminal 7 (about 25 minutes) to check in with United. If this is a United flight, why is it called Austrian Airlines? Very frustrating and confusing to me and to Austrian Airlines!!!"
Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"
Pros: "Free Movies."
Cons: "Got delayed 3+ hours. No food on flight. No leg room."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Food was not tasty. Some crew members weee to task oriented and it is make them less friendly"
Pros: "Boarding and entertainment were good.."
Cons: "Over an hour delayed and unlesss you pay up the seating is very cramped"
Pros: "Flight was short so I I did not get too involved with crew, men had smiles and hellos not so with females. Maybe they get too much stuff from other passengers but I was a little surprised by it. I haven't flown in quite a while but I don't remember that bad attitude. Drink service was good with snacks."
Cons: "There was no food, entertainment and seats are not that comfortable for a person with back problems. Female flight attendants are not so much in the friendly skies"
Cons: "Too long delayed"
Pros: "On time and smooth boarding process."
Cons: "Being charged for directtv while on board. This should be included in ticket."
Pros: "Great in flight crew. Easy check in and boarding. Left on time. Arrived early."
Cons: "Really bumpy ride. I mean bumpy."
Pros: "Also united forced me to check my bags because I got a basic economy flight will never use them again it cost an extra 50 dollars."
Cons: "Also united forced me to check my bags because I got a basic economy flight will never use them again it cost an extra 50 dollars. The one guy on board was creepy Newark airports eating system made me go to 3 different iPads one for food one for drink and one to pay. Just let me pay when I order!!! Also bad signage"
Pros: "The flight was excellent"
Pros: "Timelyness. On time. Crew was good"
Cons: "The small screen in front was annoying. No leg room so uncomfortable."
Pros: "First through all the issues I will say that the staff was nice and helped us the best they could to fix what went wrong. Except one thing..."
Cons: "The flight to Chicago got delayed due to weather (not Uniteds fault), then got stuck in Sioux Falls due to need for gas (also not Uniteds fault), but when we finally got to Chicago and got told we couldn't continue on to our destination for two days United refused to get us a hotel room. They said that since no one had entered the mechanical failure that made us stay in Sioux Falls (also not Uniteds fault) that they couldn't give us rooms at a hotel. What a crock. We ended up having to borrow money from my in laws to be able to afford a hotel room for 2 days."
Cons: "Over all service was good. Only food what I ordered could not get. My requirement was vegetarian without onion, garlic and mushroom. There was mushroom in the food."
Pros: "Since the plane was an hour late, many with connecting flights worried about making their connections. It'd be helpful if there was a way to communicate with flights to know whether one would make the connection or not. trying to get off the plane in a hurry is stressful."
Pros: "Crew was fine"
Cons: "We weren't offered snacks. Plane was very hot. Seats uncomfortable"
Pros: "Great flight!!!"
Cons: "I had 2 minutes left to board, and they wouldn't let me. Instead they closed the door. But United was get me a ticket home. Unlike LH..."
Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "They crew tried to help us as much as they could given the fact that United computers were down and we couldn't go anywhere for 3 hours."
Cons: "Because both our Air China flights were late, we had to RUSH all the way across LAX, only to find out United's computer systems were down, then wait 3 hours to leave."
Pros: "It was a smooth flight."
Cons: "I'm disappointed that I had to pay to watch the flight tracker, that it wasn't a free option and I had to be continually subjected to commercials that were irrelevant to me."
Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"

Pros: "Bigger plane more smooth ride the pizza was excellent"
Cons: "The running to the next plane in 15 min because of the delay the landing was hard"

Pros: "The veg meal was better than anticipated and the entertainment system had many options"
Cons: "Small child in the seat in front of us wouldn't quiet down on the red eye flight. More delays on this flight due to a maintenance issue."
