Pros: "Boarding in Bozeman was good."
Cons: "Couldn’t hear the pilot at all, which was disconcerting through a pretty turbulent flight. Unclear about beverage service; some people seemed to get drinks but no one ever asked if we wanted anything. Finally the app did not work consistently for in-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"

Pros: "Once we took off the flight was quick and smooth"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed from 11:55 am take off to a 1:30 pm take off."

Cons: "The airport experience was horrible. American Airlines did not have enough personnel on duty to process all the waiting passengers."

Pros: "Missed our connection flight. Time to close terminal to far away. Ran to gate closed as we got there."
Cons: "Spending night in Chicago O'hare airport where we rerouted."

Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "There were no power ports on this flight."

Pros: "The crew was friendly enough and the seat size / storage was typical for standard plane tickets."
Cons: "The flight was extremely cold. Coming from Mexico to LA we didn't have jackets / blankets on us but it would have been very helpful for this flight. Deplaning at LAX was ridiculous. We stood on the tarmac outside the plane inside a glass tube for 20-25 minutes with no information waiting for a bus."

Cons: "The plane was so small no roller bags could be accommodated. All bags were gate checked. Retrieving all those bags while on the jetway was difficult"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seats were very uncomfortable. I've flown Lufthansa many times and there is a big difference."
Cons: "Seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Handicap issues. We were exiting on the tarmac in Charlotte- all crew left us on the plane waiting for assistance to get off. Finally when someone showed they would not come up the ramo to get my Mom. I backed her down myself while 5 bewildered airport workers looked confused."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The food was excellent"
Cons: "seat room space"

Cons: "One crew member is not particularly helpful when passengers needed assistance."

Cons: "5 hour delay including multiple gate changes, being pulled off the runway and poor communication"

Cons: "The delay of 1 hour inside the aircraft and at the end before they closed the doors 3 new passengers came in and it appeared that the aircraft was waiting for these passengers"

Cons: "Smelling booze on obviously wasted passenger who invaded my personal space multiple times."

Pros: "Meal and drink service was excellent"
Cons: "Economy plus is packed liked sardines and difficult to move from side to side. Also upgrade doesn’t include priority seating. It should be included in any seating upgrade."

Cons: "NOT ENOUGH SPACE FOR THE LEGS, I serioulsy doubt that it was the size that the sold in the info when I booked (armrest blocked), the seat to small (I couldn't put my head because it was too much short). Paintful, the worst experience in my life,"

Pros: "Experience was fine, Flight was late leaving & plane seamed pretty old. The crew however is was very good."

Cons: "did not get my requested wheel chair service."

Pros: "Cabin crew"
Cons: "Check in. I swappda seat and ended up with a worse seat. Check in agent unaware of the plane configuration and between us a bad choice wasmade"

Pros: "Relatively quick embarkation process despite having to walk outside. Got us safely to destination."
Cons: "Those old turbo props suck big time. Not only everything looks dated but the engine drone and especially the vibration are unbearable. I have flown turbo-prop in Europe and they didn’t seem so noisy and transmitting so much vibration."

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Boarding is chaotic. They don't check the group number when passengers board."

Pros: "Boarding, crew, seating"
Cons: "Food was awful"

Pros: "Not turbulence"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rude customer"

Cons: "Food in general"

Pros: "Horrible hospitality. The flight was initially delayed for computer issues which understandably happens. However, we were later switch to another plane 4 hr later, boarded, de iced, taxied, then notified he flight was cancelled at 1 am because the crew hit their maximum work time. We were de-boarded. There was no organization to get vouchers passed out. The hotel ran out of rooms for passengers. The whole trip was 16 hrs delayed and no customer service provided."

Cons: "I was expecting this to be a flight by Japan Airlines but it turned out to be an American Airlines flight. I was expecting and wanted to experience a flight from another airline."

Cons: "I didn't have enough time and had to rush to get to me connecting flight. It scared me that I might not make it to the terminal and gate in time. thanks!!"

Pros: "Flight was smooth. Service was perfect"
Cons: "Boarding process is horrible, too many groups, not logical at all."

Pros: "Entertainment aspect of flight was excellent. Good was not bad and staff attentive."
Cons: "Check in was terrible. There was confusion and it was terribly disorganized. I arrived 2 hours before my flight and almost did not make bag drop due to the long line (atleast 50-80 other people in the same situation). Then had to rush through security and the terminal to make boarding. Cleared second passport check to be told when the flight shelf have been taking off that the flight was delayed. I get sick when I fly and it helps to eat and due to all the check in delays I could not eat. So when the flight was delayed for mechanical reasons I wanted to go eat to be told that for the next three hours that I would be stuck I could not leave to walk around get a meal or anything. The communication for the staff was poor and their attempt to keep their customers comfortable was lacking."

Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"

Cons: "Slight delay taking off due to lack of personnel at Jackson airport. They did not arrive until 600 AM. Flight was to leave at 550 AM"

Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."

Pros: "We were able to be put in an exit row which was great - especially since my husband and I are very tall and it was a cross-country flight."
Cons: "I find it ridiculous that on a cross-country flight they can't even offer pretzels or peanuts. There was NOTHING!!!! I have been on short hops on other airlines and you get something."

Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "I was confused by the Brot"

Cons: "tiny plane with uncomfortable, old seats. no entertainment options on a 3 hour flight. No food options for purchase."

Pros: "I like AA because they are honest and kind. I received good value for my money."

Cons: "Seats that are smaller and more cramped than even the customary seats on domestic flights. The "breakfast" constituted yogurt and was served literally 42 minutes before we landed."

Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."

Pros: "El embarque fue rápido y ordenado."
Cons: "El vuelo fue operado por American Airlines. Era un 777 viejo, con pantallas antiguas, servicio de entretenimiento pobre, con películas que no se podían iniciar cuando uno quería."

Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"

Pros: "Everything went very smoothly & I plan to book more trips on Kayak in the future."

Pros: "The free mivies, the leg room was good also"
Cons: "Flight left late and yge long wait for the baggage. Too long!"

Pros: "tv!"
Cons: "babies crying"

Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"

Pros: "Every thing."
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Entertainment and seats on the plane"
Cons: "Crew was not very polite, looks like they don't like their job, boarding was very slow and confusing, who ever was directing at the door did not have a speaker, passengers were looking for information and no one had an answer. Check bag stands outsides, those guy don't have any maners, they talk to people in Avery disrespecful way"

Cons: "The temperature on the flight was super warm. I was uncomfortable. I was told that with Layover I would receive my check in bag for Hotel stay. the attendant took a discription of my luggage for other united employees to tell me it would take 3 hours to retrieve my luggage. They didn’t even try to look for it or help me. Then what’s the point of taking my discription down? Now I have to stay at a hotel with nothing on me. So ridiculous and rude."

Cons: "They boarded us in spite of the fact that the flight had been delayed 40 minutes. We were all getting alerts on our phones but were told to disregard it and board anyway. We then had to sit on the runway for 40+ minutes until we could take off. Since we were traveling with two small children, it would have been preferable to spend those extra 40 minutes in the terminal rather than on the plane."

Pros: "Comfortable fast trip"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "Pleasant, uneventful flights."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Great boarding service and flight crew"
Cons: "no in flight entertinment"

Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "This is a small airplane. I would like to see United insist that people check large bags."

Pros: "Not the flights problem that I have sciatic issues and get very unconfortable, not going to lie I was more uncomfortable than I thought I’d be. Bathrooms were clean and staff was wonderful! Besides the long flight and my own back issues, great flight."
Cons: "If I upgraded to first class!"

Pros: "The flight attendant was very sweet and helpful."
Cons: "Every.single.time I take this flight we sit and wait for upwards of 30 minutes for someone to be available to park/unload the plane. The wait is so consistent it’s ridiculous."

Pros: "Hearing progress and warnings of turbulence ahead, everything else great - flight attendants especially."

Pros: "Great service, quick and easy!"

Pros: "No problems to deal with"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It took 35+ mins for bags to be unloaded in claim area. And I was 1st class!"

Cons: "Plane as dirty and dislike direct tv"

Pros: "Upgraded Business Economy was much nicer than regular Economy. The flight got in to Tampa early."
Cons: "Bathroom not maintained during flight. Vomiting child seated behind us (which I know was not the airlines fault, it was gross though)."

Cons: "We waited an hour and a half for de-icing in Bozeman and I nearly missed a connecting flight in Denver"

Pros: "Friendliness"
Cons: "Ride was bumpy"

Pros: "Informative Gate Attendant Nice flight attendant"
Cons: "I couldn't take my computer bag on board and had to empty it because of the small space overhead. Bozeman airport was very nice. Easy to maneuver in the airport."

Pros: "Basic snack for a one hour flight."
Cons: "The WiFi wasn’t working. It kept trying to connect but never did."

Pros: "On time Nice crew"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"

Cons: "Way overcharge for 3rd bag -$150 for single relatively small bag!"

Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Getting bags checked was a nightmare in Bozeman with United. Way understaffed behind the counter. This is a typical problem in Bozeman at Peaks."

Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour"

Pros: "Nice crew and ground staff. With the right credit card (United Explorer or better) boarding is a snap."
Cons: "Lack of personal space is a fact of life for air travel unless one can afford the good seats. Plus, why do I always sit behind a crying, screaming child? I know it's no fun for anyone involved and it's just part of life, but maybe next time I'll be more fortunate. Flying in economy is truly like riding in a very big Greyhound Bus! It beats driving, but not by much. I wish trains were more plentiful and affordable."

Pros: "Magazine was worth reading"
Cons: "Boarding process is broken. They start boarding on time, 50 minutes before the flight, but the group system they use doesn't get people on efficiently. Both legs of the flight took over an hour before the plane was remotely ready to move."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "Flight attendant never smiled once. She got short with the lady in front of me. Just looked like she doesn't like her job. You could tell she didn't want to be there. I never did hear the Captain speak. The crew just seemed unfriendly to me. Service at the airport was great!"

Pros: "The seating seemed a bit more spacious~very much appreciated!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "On time. Comfortable"

Pros: "Good solid trip. No issues and went smooth. Your team Was good both ways."

Cons: "Lots of turbulence. Horrible landing...very abrupt."

Pros: "I like being able to use the United App,"
Cons: "I don't like having to pay for all entertainment in the headrest tvs. The app is much more convenient."

Pros: "Warm friendly competent staff."

Pros: "Employees were very nice"
Cons: "Seating very cramped I'm six foot one maybe you guys should look at JetBlue"

Pros: "smooth check in, effortless boarding"
Cons: "1/3 of a soda can for a drink? Just give the clients a can for heaven's sake! too short a flight for much but the snacks are pretty tiny"

Cons: "IT system outtage, grounded all domestic flights"

Pros: "Blanket and small pillow. Puerto Rico crew sang Christmas song- very nice."
Cons: "No food in a 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew, easy, quick boarding. I had gate checked my bag. Upon arrival, it wasn't brought up with the others. A ground crewman said he would find it. After a few minutes he returned with my bag, thanked him profusely, he saved the day for United"
Cons: "I am tall and don't fit the curvature of the seatback plus the padding of the seat pan was too hard"

Pros: "I was late to get to airport-- the airport is small-- I hauled and managed to get checked in and got to gate 15 minutes before take off. There was no one at the gate door. I went to another gate and she tried to call the attendant at the door. She didn't respond because her phone was at the desk. I was frustrated I didn't get on while I could see she was talking with people at the gate and in the airplane-- but I should have been there earlier. That said-- she came out and was incredibly helpful-- she managed to get me on a flight only an hour after that one and I didn't miss my connecting flight."

Cons: "Hard to sleep, turbulence"

Pros: "I have nobody sitting next to me"
Cons: "The 20 min delay"

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Luggage lost or left in Chicago with meds including insulin, had to stay in motel in Portland, ME to wait for morning flight. Hope luggage is on that flight. He needed his meds and only wanted to help when they said there was too much baggage. Mr. Perrin had only one carrying with everything in it. The flight itself was fine and he had good aisle seats and wheelchair at all points, but the lost luggage with the important meds caused a problem. We hope United found it."

Pros: "Great flight attendant"

Pros: "Held flight from Chicago to Harrisburg so we could make connection. Arrived MDT only 30 minutes later than original schedule."

Pros: "The crew was the most polite, calm and reassuring crew I've ever come across. When faced with the mounting frustrations of a cabin full of delayed passengers, these guys were smooth as silk. Bravo!"
Cons: "Being grounded due to weather is unfortunate, but the team did so well in managing expectations, it's hard to be mad."

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Unfortantely their was a mechanical problem that delayed the flight. I understand that failures occur, but only having one mechanic available to work this problem is not good. What happend to the two person concept when working on critical aircraft systems? Pretty hard landing at Chicago."

Pros: "New seats (more room & comfort) & movies"

Cons: "No food no wifi"

Pros: "Great overall leg of the flight"
Cons: "No one working the ticket counter at check in for questions. Obviously understaffed!"

Pros: "..."
Cons: "Its a joke paying money to watch broadcast T.V."
