It was of size to cram into my carry on so I did that, but American staff demonstrated concern, had a sense of humor and helped me get a comfortable seat to sort of take some of the sting away. All that was great of them I was aware of being in an upgraded seat. No complaints, but it stung a little because I was deeply aware of the reinforcement of class. The small, extra comforts were wonderful and I wish everyone had them while risking their lives together over the ocean - especially the extra room At times, on the way over I felt a claustrophobic panic. But to stay positive, they were kiind, sympathetic, funny, sweet. I appreciate them."

We were at the farthest International Airport gate M20. After 10 minutes one "pusher" arrived and moved my wife to the bottom of the ramp, approximately 100 feet and left her sitting in the corridor unattended. Although I had 2 Rolla boards I had to push her the full distance to Immigration and Customs. Our bags were sitting on a stationary baggage conveyor, the last from our American Airline flight. It wasn't until we're were ready to leave Customs that 4 people from "Prospect" asked if they could help, saying that they were SORRY!! They had just been standing around. A year ago I had the exact same thing happen to me from gate M1 and my wife had to push me the full distance. BTW, I 'm 71 and my wife is 68."

I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Pros: "Courteous and polite"

Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "The arrive time was excellent. Courtesy and smile faces of the Crew in Business Class"
Cons: "The boarding process was ugly, in disorder and it is a big lie you have with your business class ticket the priority option. The food was very poor. I had to avoid continue eating because I felt the food was not fresh."
Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."
Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"
Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."

Pros: "That we landed."
Cons: "Stuard needs to articulate his english better. Food was awful even for a plane. Broken headphones, broken monitors. Staff with bad attitude."

Pros: "Flight was delayed causing us to miss our connection in Houston to Bonaire. No flights until 2 weeks and we missed a vacation planned with several friends. All United said was they were sorry. We did get our money back. But not another thing."
Cons: "As common as this might be, I think 4 hours delay is the worst advertising for an airline. I completely understand things can happen but, what would happen if I show up 4 hours late? will you be ok with that. We gotta be fair. I think passengers deserve a compensation for this"
Pros: "tsa pre"
Pros: "Good on-phone customer service to make flight accommodations since we missed our connecting flight out of Denver"
Cons: "Insufficient and/or incomplete communication from pilot as to the nature of the delay (unhooked cable), how it was being addressed (the ONLY person that could hook the cable was still at home; then when he did arrive, he was assigned to fix another airplane before ours), and what we, as passengers, could do to help ourselves (United staff was reviewing connections, but then no one ever came back to relay information about that). We missed our connecting flight (we finally departed 15 minutes before our connecting flight left Denver); I had to call customer service while still sitting on the plane, and we were placed on a connecting flight out of Denver that left 4 hours AFTER we should have landed at our final destination. What should have been 9 hours of total travel time (including driving to and from airport, security checks, customs, etc.) turned into 20 hours, resulting in a lost 1st day of our trip."
Cons: "My flight was overbooked could fly out until the next day"
Cons: "Booked on flight next day but much less convenient than original direct flight."
Cons: "They charge de luggage, didnt gave anything to eat, the luggage in orlando came like 2 hours late. The flight back from Houston was cancelled with no reason, they overbooked the flight.. and worst of all the only offer us a $10 disccount in a cheap hotel.. no food nothing"
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Pros: "Awesome Illy coffee and stroopwaffel cookie for my flight to Guatemala for my first medical mission trip on a snowy cold morning was a welcome snack. It was so much better than the snack mix or nut packs that you usually get."
Cons: "Had to get off the plane because of a mechanical issue only to re-board the same exact plane 1 hour later"
Cons: "My bag didn't came with came, it was a direct flying. The air conditioned was too cold"

Pros: "On time."
Pros: "In these past six months my family and I have been back and forth on the same route and in four occations this flight as been delayed. My 70 year old aunt lost her other flight in Houston and had to wait 12 more hours overnight wihtout food because all the restaurants were already closed. In our case were a party of five and with 1hr 40min connection. We had to run to the other side of the airport to the international gates not knowing if we lost the flight because when we arrived to Houston the second flight was already boarding. Luckly the flight attendants let us out first before the other passengers and barely made it."
Pros: "From Salt Lake to Houston, there was a really rude flight attendant, a man. Other than that, my entire flight experience was good. They didn't have Dr. Pepper."
Pros: "Garrett's popcorn They seem to be trying to improve the food. Tsa precheck great Love that I was offered a ride through Newark airport on a cart!"
Cons: "No chocolate snack items, you have to buy a whole kit to get something chocolate and you don't know what it is. Long line packed in jetway to board. Slight maintenance delay but handled it quickly."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Cons: "70min connection and luggage took 40 min so had to rebook. Destination 100min late so not awful after 32hr flight but difficult at the end of all that."
Pros: "Kindness of crew"
Cons: "Flights were delayed, no entertainment... Only pay-per view... No free food..."
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."

Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Pros: "I enjoyed that this aircraft had in-seat entertainment displays."
Cons: "Flight delayed 5 hours until 2am then about to take off and while on the runway I receive the text "Your flight to Chicago (UA1282) is canceled due to required crew rest" then they didn't have enough crew to unload the bags from the plane so I was without a bag containing all my medication. They rebooked me on a flight with a 2 hour layover when I had a direct flight before. Didn't give me any food or travel vouchers and now I missed MY OWN BRIDAL SHOWER! Very VERY unhappy."
Pros: "Timely departure, safe timely arrival, friendly crew."
Pros: "I was able to book at the last minute and received a decent price for a flight to st Thomas after I was not notified I didn't have a real ticket with american airlines."
Cons: "Seats in economy are always short on the knees. Paying $25 for checked bag is way out of line. Free is better, but $10 max would be more than enough since fuel charges have gone way down for all air lines."
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
