Cons: "Personal monitors. Free food."
Pros: "Direct flight from Sioux Falls to Dallas"
Cons: "We turned around due to equipment issues and had to spend the night. While American picked up the tab, instead of staying at one of the hotels on-site, we were shipped via bus to a low-rate hotel roughly 45 minutes away. Did not feel safe that night!!"
Pros: "Crew on the plant was friendly."
Cons: "I think at least some small food should be offer even tho it wasn’t dinner time."
Cons: "When my husband retrieved his luggage, it smelled terrible- like dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows down & throw away the baggage when we got home."

Cons: "The seats in that plane felt cramped and had less space."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Cons: "Go go in flight and in flight video not working for majority of flight."
Pros: "Crew was cordial. Pilot did treat during some rough turbulence."
Cons: "Late boarding, narrow seats"
Cons: "on time, delayed flight missed connection"
Pros: "The announcements were clear and the captain did not mumble! Not sure what happened at the airport but we had issues with ground crew not coming to help park us. The captain made sure we were informed and it didn’t really add to much to our time."
Pros: "In flight movies"
Pros: "Very good crew."
Cons: "Hate the kiosk check in"
Cons: "American Arline’s gave us a meal voucher and hotel stay. Left be t day. Not happy."
Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the food, worse I’ Ever taste"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Our connecting flight to New Orleans was cancelled and we had to rent a car or wait until the next flight out which was 5pm the next day. We opted to rent a car and Had to cancel our return flight home to be refunded. American Airlines cancelled multiple flights and were in total disarray. Still waiting to see if they will honor the refund"
Cons: "super delayed, then delayed more on tarmac due to OVERVfueling."
Cons: "I am very disappointed with my flight this morning on American Airlines 1533. The crew did an excellent job. The issue, however, is the media AA chose to play at 8:30am. The NBC show that was playing on every overhead TV on the flight featured a woman being sexually assaulted by a man, someone being bludgeoned with a piece a wood until they lay unconscience in a pool of blood, and woman with a gun to her head as she’s being yelled at by multiple men. I was flying with my three year old son. Why on earth is it necessary to show this tv show (or any show that has mature/adult ratings) on a flight that is obviously going to have audiences of all ages? Our flight had a dozen or so children and when you show prime time trash on the overhead TVs, it’s really tough to keep kids from looking forward the entire length of the 2 hour flight so they don’t watch a woman being raped, a man being beaten, or someone being held at gunpoint. I am traveling on behalf of the US government so I didn’t have to pay for my ticket. I did, however, pay for my 3 year old son to accompany me on the flight and I am wholly unsatisfied with the AA team responsible for choosing in-flight ‘entertainment.’ I’m not sure if NBC pays AA to feature their shows or AA has to pay NBC for the pleasure of featuring their trash but either way, what in the world are you guys thinking?"
Cons: "Late departure. Sat on tarmac for 20 minutes"
Pros: "We got there"
Pros: "Smooth flight with great service."
Cons: "seats should be priced based on passengers' weight."
Pros: "staff fine On time"
Cons: "Review misleading - I didn’t use entertainment and this flight does not have food"
Cons: "We were not permitted to board the plane until later than expected, but were told we would still take off right away and regain lost time, no mention of a delay at last call or immediately after, despite the 20 minute delay by this point. After taxiing, the pilot informed us of withheld information, that ATC would delay our departure for ~40 minutes, but we could STILL try to make it up in the air. This was a bold faced lie. It was finally 9:52pm before we even took off from SFO. While idling, the cabin started to reek of jet fuel, and people started coughing and sneezing. Upon landing at LAX at 10:46pm, we were told that there was no gate for us, and that we would have to wait for an amount of time that kept changing every time there was an announcement. The toxic jet fumes started to permeate the cabin again, and people started coughing and sneezing in response. Ultimately it is 11:21pm by the time we reached our gate. At this point, the jetway was broken/failed to open, but despite this, the air conditioning was switched off and pax crowd the aisles without direction. Finally we managed to escape at 11:31pm."
Cons: "a little loud in the cabin."
Pros: "The people where great. But this does not make up for what happened."
Cons: "1. Undisclosed LAX bus ride time limit to get to gate. BS 2. Undisclosed LAX bus ride to gate. BS 3. Alaska Airlines never explained at ticket purchase that it was at American Airline Terminal. Caused a 8 min walk to AA terminal from Alaska terminal. BS 4. None of this was explained at ticket purchase. Not happy. Probably will never try to fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "Stsff was outstanding...love the compllimentary wine....like the old days.when service mattered most."
Cons: "Airline wait lines at terminals"
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft Bad food No wifi No chargers Seat won't incline Seats were falling apart"
Cons: "My audio outlet was defenct. So, no films. And my connecting flight didnt have any information."
Cons: "There is no legroom in coach. I am six foot seven and my knees cram against the seat in front of me to the point my legs go numb."
Pros: "Overall it was very comfortable and smooth flight."
Cons: "The airplane was looked new, clean and the seats were very comfortable."
Pros: "again, nice and easy and well done."
Pros: "Overall friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and was rebooked the following day. Plane arrived to my destination 25 minutes late."
Cons: "Great app, sometime it still miss a flight, suggust to provide a display sorting options, such as stops, times etc"
Pros: "Arrived at destination safely."
Pros: "I was happy that my bag arrived on the same flight."
Cons: "Paying for first checked luggage, 30 min. delay leaving PHX, small seats in coach"
Pros: "After boarding and a 20 min wait seated we were told we had to leave the plane because of the broken something . It was fixed and we were off about two hours late. Fresno is a beautiful easy airport."
Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."
Pros: "The Boeing 777 200 was refurbished with the new business class pods"
Cons: "Modern cabin space"
Pros: "Nice plane when we finally boarded it. Crew was very professional."
Cons: "Endless advisories, the official explanation of the flight delay and estimated departure was constantly in flux."
Pros: "The space in economy plus. But the crew making sure we had room due to social distancing the best they could with what space they had to work with on the plane."
Pros: "Perfect..!!! Very nice...!!!"
Cons: "I think that is just perfect for a very short flight you can not ask for something else."
Pros: "The flight was great. No complains to the crew."
Cons: "The drop-off bags at LAX is a mess and you have to stand in two separate lines to drop off your bag. First you have to print the tag and then go to another long line be with 2 employees only to drop it of instead of having one place to print and drop off at the same time. Poor system. Moreover while there was plenty of time my bag did not make it on the same flight. It will arrive on the next flight hopefully. I had to wait in another line for 30 minutes to arrange the delivery and verify all my information. I truly believe that to make a trip great both arms - the airport and the flight experience should be perfect. Unfortunately the ground experience does not allow me to give a higher rating."
Pros: "trip was horrible. Very disrespectful and racist."
Cons: "Crew needs to take classes on discrimination"
Cons: "Turbulence was so so bad!! Pilot announce that there would be a little of it!!! It never stopped!!! I thought I wouid leave at that time and sleep some what!!! Not a wink!!!!"
Pros: "Seat were comfortable Crew were awesome"
Cons: "Could have cell phone charging at all seats Would have been nice to have a second cup of coffee"
Pros: "Most of the staff were good and helpful. Chicago had a snow storm and it was frustrating but not their fault...I did get a free drink on the plane for all the delays."
Cons: "The boarding process. Again, not the staff's fault."

Pros: "Nothing, worst airline ever"
Cons: "They didnt take care of us.... aftee the airplane was delay for almost 4 hours, and told us that must of the people.were traveling.by car from sacramento to san francisco to take the other airplane didnt even gave us anothee option!!"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful"
Cons: "Fresno needs a better runway so bigger planes can fly in"
Pros: "Pretty good leg room and nice refreshments, but the flight was delayed quite a bit and caused to me to miss my connecting flight, which I was told I had plenty of time to get to."
Cons: "See what I liked*"
Cons: "Mechanical delay on this leg left us in a hot plane on a hot Texas tarmac. We were initially told it would take 15-20 minutes but this incrementally grew to 1-1/2 hours. Even when we were told that we were pushing away from the gate, we didn't move for another 15 minutes. At least tell the truth. Only water offered. Observed flight attendant moving cups along baggage bins.... Don't know if these were the ones he then served water in."
Pros: "On time, not crowded, seat with enough space, responsive screen and good sound"
Pros: "Short fly nothing fancy made it safe and in time."
Pros: "The captain was diligent to keep us informed of the flight progress."
Cons: "Another major airline’s equipment failure delaying our pushback! In spite of that, our crew delivered us to FAT on time!"
Pros: "Very helpful with my mother and the wheelchair."
Cons: "Plane unloaded on tarmac. If weather would have bad the experience would have been very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Food was great and unexpected"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as they could have been they could have provided a usb charger."
Cons: "Disorganised with aggressive & disgruntal staff"
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Cons: "United service was uniformly poor. When we checked in at Dulles Airport, we had to go to two different counters to send our luggage. The United check-in / baggage attendant determined that two of my bags were 'oversized.' I have travelled dozens of times with these same bags, including on this trip, and none of the airport determined the bags to be oversized. The United seats, which we had purchased as "Premium Economy" from the Lufthansa site were "Economy Plus" and not worth the extra $ 275 per seat. The United plane was not well-maintained and had several obvious defects. If United wants "Star AlliNCE" to mean something, they need to do as well as Lufthansa."
Pros: "Todo, menos la demora. 8 horas sentada y mi espalda sufrió. Lo demás excelente."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Family not considered in seat assignments."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very fast at getting our drinks and snacks delivered - especially for a 44 minute flight! She was also very friendly."
Cons: "I could have driven the 1600 miles faster than I did using United Airlines. Zero notifications that could have saved me time sitting in the airports that I traveled to."
Pros: "Waited 2 hrs for a plane"
Cons: "Arrived in SFO late due to delay from SBP on flight 5022. Rushed to the gate for flight 5992 which was scheduled to board at 2:00 and depart at 2:25. Arrived at the gate at 2:12 with 4 other passengers, 3 of which came from flight 5022. Found the door to the jetway closed and no airline employee to be seen. One fellow passenger ran to a neighboring gate to ask an employee for help and was told they could not help us. Another passenger called united customer service and was put on hold. At 2:23 the united employee emerged from the jetway and told us that we had gotten there too late. When we told the employee that all 5 passengers had been waiting at the gate for ever 10 minutes, the employee argued, insisted that we were lying. This was not only extremely unprofessional but also added insult to injury after we had missed this flight due to fault 100% on united's shoulders and none of our own. I am completely baffled how an employee could not wait just a few minutes when you have 5 passengers rushing in late. The employee could have looked in the system and seen that we were already on the ground and coming from a near by gate. I was rebooked on flight 1889 at a later time. After boarding 1889 a maintenance issue was detected requiring all passengers to deplane. It is beyond me why this issue was not discovered until after the flight had been boarded, when at that time the plane had been sitting at the gate for over two hours. After being delayed over an hour we were on our way to Austin. Ultimately I arrived in Austin 5 hours after my original arrival time due to the incompetence of united airlines. I was disappointed by the lack of professionalism and compassion by united employees throughout the ordeal."
Pros: "I liked that my flight was on time and fast boarding."
Cons: "Paying the extra for my baggage. It was only one bag to check and had to pay an extra $50 for round trip."
Pros: "everything was fine"
Cons: "1/3 of a soda can for a drink? Just give the clients a can for heaven's sake No food on this flight... but we had time for a snack"
Cons: "My flight was delayed over 4 hours. Pilots kept us in the plane before take off for an hour. They barely informed us even when we were experiencing turbulence and flight attendants were not very attentive to us during the flight."
Cons: "Plane was late and we almost missed our connection in Newark"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Waited in the customer service line for 3+ hours just to not be helped. Had to rent a car for more money than I spent on my round trip ticket without reimbursement. United employees give you the run around so they don't have to deal with you anymore and none of them are on the same page. Definately lost a loyal customer after this nightmare of an experience."
Pros: "The aircraft"
Pros: "Patient flight crew"
Cons: "Waited for CFO for 20 min past departure time and there were 3 CFO onboard in general seating"
Pros: "Had more leg room and comfortable seats than our flight from esst coast. Food and entertainment are not applicabke due ti short flight duration."
Pros: "United made it so easy to check in & get our boarding tickets. We were traveling with a child and it was a good first time experience!"
Cons: "Didn't use. Had to reschedule thru phoenix with aal"
Pros: "Seat comfort and friendly"
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "Have to pay to watch movies"
Pros: "Seating was spaced good"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little communication or reassurance. When I had to rebook my connection, the counter was woefully understaffed and they were not equipped with new enough computers to quickly address my problem."
Cons: "Bumped my head getting into the seat!!!!! The coffee machine was broken hence there was no coffee - this was a 10 am flight and the choice was a cool drink - Very poor."
Pros: "Nice CSR people in AZO"
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Pros: "The United terminals are amazing. The United planes are not."
Cons: "They gave my vegetarian meal away to someone else. The plane had mechanical issues and we were moved to a new gate and plane, but that plane was late on the fueling list and they only addressed this after boarding us, so we waited forever after boarding. The internet didn't work even through the united app."
