Worked out okay. Flight was delayed waiting for crew to show. So glad it wasn't cancelled!
Poor customer service upon arrival in Dallas with cancelled connection. Offered no compensation, connecting flight, hotel room or anything.
I had pretzels and there was not entertainment on the flight
Pros: "It was a nightmare. The reps were confusing and giving different answers"
Cons: "Everything could have been better I spoke to 4-5 AA reps/staff, they were horrible. Need lots of training."
Cons: "Better customer services"
Pros: "The crew seemed to make the best of their situation"
Cons: "The airplane was old and very cramped. Needs to be replaced with a more appropriate plane."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "We paid for WiFi but it was not working on this flight."
Pros: "The entertainment on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The seating is cramped as has become customary."
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: "This fly was ok;was yet a litle time 20 minutes late."
Cons: "Wahington to Orlando was ok.O ly 20 mi utes late."
Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"
Pros: "Crew was really great!"
Cons: "My bag never left Chicago so I had to wait a day to get that"
Pros: "Seat was 9k. Comfortable"
Cons: "Plane late to take off because caterer was late"
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow in Philly (again)"
Cons: "No boarding by zone."
Pros: "Crew was fine, nothing spectacular."
Cons: "Paid extra for exit row on A321 - scam for AA to charge extra for this row, there is no extra leg room"
Pros: "Crew on and off plans were helpful and nice."
Cons: "Delayed for hours for a short one hour flight with multiple gate switches."
Pros: "Nice new 737-800 w/ comfy seats, but the plane was nearly 40 mins late due to previous flights."
Cons: "The flight was fine, just be on-time."
Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"
Cons: "That the bags came out late and I missed my next flight. It was the last flight for that day. Royal Jordanian did not offer hotel stay or anything because they said it is not their fault that the bags showed up late"
Pros: "The only positive thing is that we got to our destination."
Cons: "Horrible seats, no entertainment, the crew appeared as if it was their first flight."
Pros: "Lots of food and wine/beer were provided at no additional cost and the first checked bag was free as is standard with British Airways. Basically I liked that American Airlines followed British Airways standards for the flight."
Cons: "There were no personal entertainment devices, just a central tv for everyone to watch, and there were no charging outlets. The plane was probably from a museum it was so old. After boarding we sat in the plane without moving to the runway for 30 minutes just making the 8 hour flight even longer. The gate at the Lisbon airport was overly small and restrictive with everyone crammed in and unable to leave after initially entering."
Cons: "Business class crew was extremely rude and unfriendly."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."
Cons: "We still haven’t left Dayton."
Pros: "Most everything was great"
Cons: "When you have an isle seat, it is very difficult to sleep when you get bumped by the flight attendants every time they pass you. Understanding that there is limited space, just giving feedback"
Pros: "I really liked crew, fast boarding"
Cons: "Old airplane, very noisy , no tv screans on seats, boring movies on tv and horrible ear sets, could not hear anything. very dissapointed experience."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed by 4.5 hours. Then when we finally landed, we had to wait nearly 2 hours on the tarmac before we taxied to the gate. American kept us in the dark about what was happening -- I might have made different plans if I had known what was going on."
Cons: "Delayed flight and missed connection flight to KC"
Pros: "The snacks and meals were decent, as far as plane food goes (although the “vegetables” with the chicken were pretty awful). Also the entertainment selection had a wide assortment of movies, but disappointing tv show selection."
Cons: "The boarding process was a mess. Just a huddle of people, with no clear direction and no one enforcing lines or boarding groups. Also my husband and I weren’t seated together and when I tried to change it online, the entire flight showed as booked. However once on board there were clearly a number of empty seats."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the entertainment available."
Cons: "A 6 hour flight in which we were not offered food. In addition, when it was time for baggage claim, I noticed that my luggage had been damaged. One of the wheels was broken off. I put in a claim and have yet to hear back."
Pros: "Smooth flying and lots of respects to the pilots for their dedicated work. The entertainment really works very well."
Cons: "Poor Service. The service of drinks is done very poorly. Really concerned with the attitude. Never need those complimentary drinks."
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall people unless you pay extra."
Pros: "quick easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Cons: "No preliminary information that no meals are included."
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Cons: "Too long of a layover when flying from san diego through phoenix to detroit. Need to look for improvement in scheduling to make this a trip enjoyable."
Pros: "Boarding was structured as usual"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. No reason was given. There seemed to be an issue with the maintenance log, which I overheard I arrived late to Piarco"
Pros: "Cabin crew were quite good. Food was fine for airplane fare with excellent ice cream mid-flight. Airplane was spotless. Entertainment was very good. Plenty of carry-on storage on this 787-9. Customs and airport (DFW) experience was very good. Baggage claim and return for connection were prompt and rapid."
Cons: "Seats were tight in basic coach. As typical at CDG airport (other than the government subsidized Air France facilities), check-in and security is a nightmare. Clearly the worst airport in the world."
Pros: "Complimentary cocktail! Great selection of entertainment on our own personal screen."
Cons: "Boarding agent was abrupt"
Pros: "Smooth ride."
Cons: "Waited on gate agents for more than 20 mins from 1.39 pm to 2.00 pm And this was a scheduled flight. This is sloppiness."
Pros: "Japan Team excellent in customer service"
Cons: "AA flight crew very poor and not helpful, I saw one of the flight crew almost fight with a customer over a baby crib. As per my experience I had a nice travel suit that I took off and flught attendant did not offer help. I have to store on floor."
Pros: "Ordinary flight, not too chaotic for holiday weekend."
Cons: "My luggage was lost! Had to wait an entire day to recuperate my suitcases."
Pros: "I was 10 minutes late for the flight. People were still lined up to board and the customer service agent taking the tickets refused to accept mine and told me I would have to reschedule. Instead of allowing me to board in line with the other passengers, they choose to delay the flight by another 30 minutes to put in a request to pull my luggage from the flight. It would have been so much easier to just let me board. I've been a few minutes late before and have never been treated like that by any airline. Very disappointed in American Airlines."

Pros: "On time, very friendly and accommodating crew!"
Cons: "My screen didn't work BA to Dallas but I didn't ask for help either!"
Cons: "Flight from San Antonio to Dallas had an excellent entertainment selection and entertainment system, despite being an hour flight, but the flight to Madrid was far more lacking."
Pros: "What can be said about a feeder"
Pros: "Good customer service but to be expected"
Cons: "Horrible bin space Sitting arrangement southwest has better system including free baggage"
Cons: "more room Im 5'5 and I felt like I was 6ft tall that how tiny the sits are...."
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: "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."
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."
Cons: "They delayed the flight 4 hrs knowing there was issues with the plan and lingered us on what's going on. The staff prepared to leave and come back while we wait thinking we was going to be on time smh, no real snack and no t.v. unless you pay to watch it"
Pros: "- Call of apology next morning to say my luggage was found and would come in that night"
Cons: "- My luggage did not make the connection into POS - No United staff meeting flight in PoS to take my report of lost luggage"
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: "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"
Cons: "I had a death I my family you charge me $300 dollars to change my ticket you put me in a middle seat that was not reclining"
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: "No issues to complain about"
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Pros: "It took me to my destination safe"

Pros: "That despite leaving late we arrived on time."
Cons: "The delays due to unorganization."
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"

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: "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: "Staff very professional"
Cons: "Angry passenger unreasonable to handle Very crowded flight"
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!

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."
