Poor customer service upon arrival in Dallas with cancelled connection. Offered no compensation, connecting flight, hotel room or anything.
Cons: "Book seats together for parties traveling together."
Pros: "I like the ability to watch movies"
Cons: "The cabin was hot... air didn’t blow well... the crew was abrasive and rude. I asked simple questions and got long explanations for no reason"
Cons: "Delayed for an hour and a half because of a flat tire"
Cons: "Passengers need to DISTANCE 6' and keep their masks on. Which I realize is put of the hands of American. Appreciate the fresh white bag with a bottle of water and crackers. Thank you."
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "The onboard crew was rude and one guy actually grabbed me which to me is unprofessional. All because I had a poster tube that wasn't in my bag they wanted it in my bag. Then I asked for a seat change due to my size hard for ne to be in the middle and the lady was snooty about it."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "We paid for WiFi but it was not working on this flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Less turbulence haha"
Cons: "Had abnormally long delays today!! Added 4.5 hours to my flight today"
Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."
Pros: "Crew was really great!"
Cons: "My bag never left Chicago so I had to wait a day to get that"
Cons: "No headphones and wifi was impossible"
Pros: "Not expecting high end services but not even mediocre service was done."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hrs, unorganized, seats uncomfortable, over crowded. Almost missed my layover flight."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Flight was too crowded!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the flight attendant so helpful. We travelled with our 3 kids, one in a diaper. When we realized we left our diaper bag at security in the airport, he offered to help us find a diaper by asking other passengers with kids. They were very generous with diapers and wipes and it wasn’t great to experience the kindness of strangers."
Cons: "We couldn’t get the free in flight entertainment. The WiFi wasn’t strong enough. The snacks were fine, but looking back I don’t think there was any food offered for sale."
Pros: "very attentive steward, nice snack choices"
Cons: "they allowed too many late people to board after departure on a 100% full flight; not due to lines, but because they were late to the gate"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "3 1/2 hrs late departing dfw, and luggage missing, found and delivered the next day."
Pros: "On time, arrived early"
Cons: "The snacks."
Cons: "I would have liked more Rosé."
Cons: "Boarded the flight before the pilot had been brought over to JFK from LGA, we sat on the jetway waiting for him to arrive for 45 minutes without the air on."
Pros: "I was not expecting the ample leg room and arm space. I was actually comfortable. It made such a huge difference in my day. The crew members were great and it was a pretty chill experience, which is not how I can describe any other flight in recent memory."
Cons: "The entertainment was just snippets from NBC shows that I’m not interested in. It was the same presentation on both legs of my trip, so even if I had been interested initially, I would have gotten bored the second time around."
Pros: "Aircraft and crew were great"
Cons: "After booking tickets months in advance only to get to airport and have a hassle of getting seats together as we are a family of 4. Finally got the seats from Rome to DFW changed and didn't have time for DFW to Denver changed. If your going to offer seat assignments up front for a fee, you need to stick to it. Will never go through a 3rd party again to book flights, should have known better."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Left a tiny bit late but not a big deal really"
Cons: "Could not get to Santa Fe! Had to fly to Albuquerque & arrange transport to Santa Fe! No luggage til next day!"
Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."
Cons: "No online updates or warning about flights for inexperienced flyers"
Cons: "System resets & bright light bursts in our faces over and over. Also when cabin lights dimmed the blue lights on seats were not enough to light the way."
Pros: "Left close to time and arrived early"
Cons: "Wifi was offered, but could not get it connected."
Cons: "The delay in Columbus caused me to miss my connection and have to fly into LAX instead of LGB."
Cons: "Having to step down very steep stairs after an overnight flight and then board a bus whose driver is not sensitive to the fact that many are standing when he makes right angle turns. It was cool outside as well and all my winter clothing was in my checked bag. I had not known I would be exposed to the elements at the end of the flight. I could have been warned!"
Pros: "On time smooth ride"
Cons: "I booked using expedia, but Kayak was sending me updates & info. I did not receive our booking record finder number, so I couldn't check in with my phone, so we got terrible seats in the back."
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Cons: "I chose a package on the cheap flights that has a left hand side for choosing number of baggage which invariably inreases fare depending on the number of baggage and i choose 2 and paid for 2 baggage but the ticket came with 1 baggage and i contacted both by phone call, email and your website but did not get any fsvourable response. Had to pay again at the airport for the extra bag. This is highly unfair."
Pros: "flight crew on my way to BWI were great!!!"
Cons: "american airlines does not care about the privacy of their passengers. even after several calls my information wasn't updated correctly and my flight confirmation was passed along to members who weren't even traveling. there was no in flight entertainment and in order to pick seats together i needed to pay extra (i thought i was flying with american not spirit) apparently the only way i can be helped is writing a letter to customer service which they will review within 10 business days. THANKS american for starting a war in my family and ruining my trip. unfortunate the crew is so awesome but the customer service is mortifying, rude, inconsiderate and completely mechanical. i dont ever intend on flying with them again unless necessary."
Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."
Pros: "Staff was fantastic. I was travelling with my 83 yr old mother and the counter staff couldn't have been more helpful. Very compassionate which was much appreciated. Really made a tough job much easier. I wish I had thought to get all their names. They made the trip...though others throughout the trip were just fantastic--including especially the wheelchair attendants."
Cons: "The leg room for seats were horrible especially anyone passed 5 ft 7in."
Pros: "The crew seemed to be as frustrated as we were."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, then we had technical difficulties, the cabin was 90 degrees. It was awful."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Pros: "Stewards were patient and attentive."
Cons: "Late and delayed arrival. No seed assign until I was at the gate"
Pros: "We bought the extra legroom. Worth it."
Cons: "Someone had been sick on the plane. They cleaned it up but it still had a pretty decent residual odor to bear in an hour plus long flight."
Pros: "Ordinary flight, not too chaotic for holiday weekend."
Cons: "My luggage was lost! Had to wait an entire day to recuperate my suitcases."
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "My Unit did not work. The crew tried to fix it but couldn't"
Cons: "I was unable to use my entertainment unit, computer:tv"
Pros: "Safe trip. Kept informed of short delay. Thank you."
Cons: "The bathroom on the flight from Denver to Santa Barbara was the WORST EVER! I doubt it has ever been cleaned and the poor people that had seats near or at the rear of the plane should have been refunded their money having been subjected to the smell of an “indoor outhouse!” Shameful!!"
Pros: "The range of 'free' food and beverages (including beer, wine, and liquor was phenomenal, and the functionality of the 777 touch-screen was outstanding. Seating was also more comfortable than comparable flights on AA."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely horrible. This is why I fly Southwest and Alaska Airlines as much as possible."
Cons: "Everything. Mechanical delay missed connection, arrived at gate to see plane being pushed off due to delay. They couldn't have waited 5 minutes? Multiple people missed their connecting flights within minutes. They kept us on the plane in Boise then deplaned and re-boarded. No coffee on flight."
Pros: "Yes, crew were great, seat was okay"
Cons: "Have life vests on board for the crew, was delayed over 2 1/2 hours on run way!"
Pros: "Poor customer service and not understanding."
Cons: "Don’t now it’s not the company’s fault it’s just the representative that I spoke to. I don’t know how many times I could explain my situation, and my English is not poor and I thought I was explaining myself clearly. Best think I could do is just say forget it I’ll take my $ 430 dollar last."
Pros: "Safe flight. Also, I was offered a different flight from Boise, ID, in order to make my connection in San Francisco. Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing, overall great experience"
Pros: "It didn’t happen."
Cons: "Because of the late plane and possible missed connection, I was re-booked for the next day without any compensation."
Pros: "I travel a lot. All was fairly normal."
Cons: "Entertainment didn’t work. Woman next to me sat cross legged and the bottom of her foot as resting on me. When I politely asked that she not out the bottom of her dirt against me she swore at me and was confrontational and crazy. Flight attendants did nothing"
Pros: "Glad they had a direct flight."
Cons: "The seats didn't offer much room."
Pros: "Very pleasant attentive crew and ground staff. An aborted takeoff on tarmac meant a return to the departure gate and the plane taken to maintenance. The ground staff were superb in dealing with a full plane load of passengers many of whom had onward connections. This meant we had to stay overnight and fly first thing the next morning. Full marks to United for dealing with a potentially dangerous situation and then assisting everyone back in the terminal."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Little to no updates and wrong information when finally given. I was bumped out of my premium seat. I had to ask for refunds for the upgrade and priority seating they were not offered. And I had to ask for a meal voucher since none was offered. Alaska always has offered fist no asking needed."
Pros: "I found the reason for being late to be questionable They said heavy snow but as i flew in i looked out the window and saw all roads nicely cleared That does not happen in 3 hours"
Cons: "They did not get my liggage to the connecting flight And here i am in Ukraine with no winter clothes at 7 below 3 days later"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Had a mechanical issue we were told didn't need fixed to fly the plane. Took 1 hour and 20 minutes to complete safety checklist so we could take off. We missed our connecting flight to Cancun."
Pros: "the crew was very friendly and the flight was smooth"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Super small aircraft so suitcases didn't fit. Didn't have food options, just pretzels."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours due to a maintenance issue"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "The overhead a.c. spout didn't work. Plane was very hot."
Cons: "Zero regard for customer service. I will never fly United Airlines again, I may never use Kayak again either. This was the worst travel experience of my entire life."
Pros: "The staff was great."
Cons: "Not necessarily their fault, but there was a lot of turbulence and at one point I hit my head pretty hard. Puddle jumpers are never for tall people. I do wish they made them just a bit more comfortable to walk through."
Pros: "More fights to choose"
Cons: "Could not choose the seat at the time booking"
Pros: "That we got to Little Rock early"
Cons: "I had ordered ginger rail and the lady brought me a Diet Coke I told her I don't like Diet Coke because I don't drink Coke and she said I thought that's what you want it now you have to hold onto it until they come back and pick up the trash and she never brought me the ginger rail to drink she walked away and I never drank nothing on the flight back to Little Rock that lady was so rude"
Cons: "Food, like all airlines, is so lacking even though airlines are making record profits while lessening service (crowded, fewer flights, baggage fees, etc)."
Pros: "Great staff and everything on time"
Cons: "That a bunch of travelers including myself missed our connecting flight in Chicago after united chamged our arrival gate but didn't have any crew to man the jet way. We sat for 20 mins right in front of our gate. From 1 pm to 10 on my flight to Asheville from Chicago was delayed many many times waiting for our airplane to arrive. Upsetting that we missed our connection due to United's poor planning, they didn't hold our connecting flight for us but we had to wait all night for other flights."
Pros: "It was so smooth.No long lines ,no delays,a straight thru flight.And on Christmas Eve morning."
Pros: "The travel agent, Tim, in STL worked very hard to get us on a flight."
Cons: "After a cancelled flight, two delays and lost luggage (that we did not receive for two days after arrival) on the way to Boise, we've now been cancelled on the way home to St. Louis. The first cancellation was due to weather. The two delays were due to late crew and refueling issues. Today's cancellation was due to maintenance. Embarassing. I travel often and can guarantee I will never fly United again."
Pros: "Very smooth and easy. Thank you"
Pros: "we left right on time. It was a smooth flight and a nice aircraft. did not use entertainment so no comment there but was a good experience overall."
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Pros: "The leg room on this flight was spacious. The crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Not a fan of the snacks that were served."
Pros: "Short flight, direct"
Cons: "Wifi misleading, sounds like free but not."
Cons: "I think that after first class they should load the plane from the last seat forward for ease of getting to the back seats"
Cons: "Charged 50.00 for check bags,when that was included in the online purchase,not happy and probably will not use either again!"
Pros: "prompt emails and text messages with the back up plan"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because flight delayed takeoff from home due to SFO problems. Sat on tarmac for an hour or more, finally took off but missed connecting flight mid afternoon and no other acceptable flights until 11 pm getting into Fort Lauderdale at 730 am. (originally was supposed to be getting to Fort Lauderdale at 10 pm). Also, the aisle seats on the plane had a narrower underseat space that my little boxy carryon wouldn't fit into--and it usually fits under any underseat storage...Luckily the passenger in the middle was willing to swap places."
Cons: "Worst ever Can you credit my credit card for a full refund"
Pros: "Boarding and.crew awesome. Crew helpful, friendly, and efficient."
Cons: "Didn't like to have a fee for my bag. Have to pay for wifi"
Pros: "Flight to Austin was just fine."
Cons: "My flight back to bosie from San Francisco they changed the gate I didn't hear the change and missed my flight. I didn't get back to bosie until the next day."
Cons: "United are the most rudest phone people on the phone to deal with and if it's there fault they never want to comp u last time I fly with united"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "That u load the plane assistance backard,loading goes much faster if you start @the back of the plane,& myself I carry only a shoulder bag only ,all the time. U put me @ the back of the plane 90% of the time which means I have to wait for the people that are moving their whole house,making me miss my schedule, I have to spend night @ airport for next schedule."
Cons: "no inflight entertainment."
Pros: "Again everybody was nice and we got on the plane on time."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to find the gate because it was one outside. The small plane was suffocating."
Pros: "Not only do I get the best price. The fact that you told me what carousel to get my bag from was new to me. I alway check kyak first but now I love u guys. I know my travel site and its kayak"
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "I almost missed my flight, because at check in they were only helping Premier passengers. Forced to wait for 45 minutes. All I wanted to do was check a bag! When I finally got to the counter, the customer service agent was extremely rude, slow and frustrated. I had to run from check in to security and only made it to the plane with seconds to go."
Pros: "Free entertainment on mobile devices"
Cons: "TSA pre check did not register from website, had to use standard security line. No boarding or seating preference for military."
Pros: "Newer plane so seats were cushioned better, crew was attentive. Great landing on icy runway."
