Older plane. I have never EVER had a problem with seat belt length (I need to lose some weight but I am not excessively large) but my seat had a very short one - looked like it needed replacing.
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working"
Cons: "Passengers were not wearing the mask appropriately and the AA crew didn’t do anything about it. The flight was so packed that was not space for social distancing. As a healthcare professional I just feel that AA is not really concerned with doing their part to avoid the spread of the virus and minimize the number of deaths from the actual pandemic. As a professional that has been in the frontline to combat this pandemic I don’t feel safe traveling in the AA flights anymore. I don’t feel that AA cares abouymy well-being and health to keep going where is need to fight this cause. I’m sorry I’m very disappointed and frustrated after this experience."
Pros: "Nice and easy. Smooth the whole way"
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat - and I’m thin."

Pros: "Extra seat width would always be nice"
Pros: "my borden pass had no gate no"
Cons: "Kept on the tarmac with no information on when we would be leaving. I fell asleep and the flight attendant instead of waking me up rudely moved my chair upright in a startling and rude way. When I asked him to next time tap me on the shoulder or ask me to move he went ahead and began speaking loud."
Pros: "Pilots made up for delayed departure. Boarding quick and efficient"

Cons: "Late boarding, narrow seats"

Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "It was a short flight so the A/C didn't affect my throat."
Pros: "The crew was great. Even though we were delayed by about 40 minutes, they were friendly and courteous."
Cons: "40 minutes maintenance delay."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable American airlines is the worst"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The attendant at the gate was rude. She asked for me to put my bag in the slot to see if it will fit. It fit, and she told me I still need to check my bag because I squeezed it in there. She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard"
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Cons: "Over 90 minutes delay on arrival time on a less than 2 hours flight"

Cons: "Ugh. By this time I'm worn out and fed up from hassling with Customs. Then they lose my luggage."
Pros: "Timing of flight routes"
Cons: "Sat on a pillow"
Pros: "The option to hear the flip down LCD screens. Though I didn’t use them."
Cons: "The lady next to me taking up my seat and a quarter of each seat to her side. The person in front of me never putting their seat all the way up. Couldn’t hear the crew when asked a question."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher numbered rows."
Pros: "The crew and planes were excellent."
Cons: "When we booked our flights the web site did not show us all the possibilities for return flights. When inn Puerto Maldanado we checked on line and discovered we did not have to have the 18 hour and 19 hour lay overs. We rebooked and were hammered with the $400 charges. We will not book future flights with your organization because of this deceptive practice."
Pros: "Entertainment system and new plane"
Cons: "Landing was a little rough"
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on luggage. There was no problems on the way up to DC, just on the way back."

Cons: "I didn't like the idea that I've had a four hour delay due to the fact that the airplane and DeRego showed up an hour late. There were no explanations and no apologies. I got to Dallas I was furious complain to customer relations. I at least wanted them to let me in to the admirals club so I could be comfortable for the next four hours. They refuse that but one lady at the customer relations apartment did give me a meal voucher which made me feel a little better."
Pros: "With American Airlines in general there is no such thing as customer service anymore .Staff at desk at the airport are rude .Could learn a few things from your Australian counterparts at Qantas airlines"

Cons: "The delay. My flight was suppossed to depart at 7:25pm and left at 9:30"
Cons: "Denver airport policy kept us on the ground for about an hour because of lightning somewhere that was supposedly heading towards the airport but never showed up. The crew did what they could for the comfort of the passengers - gave out A water & A snack (except really turning on the air conditioning)."

Pros: "We did not have to wait long for our luggage."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "The transfer was not realistic, and I would have missed my flight. To cancel was more expensive than to buy a new ticket. Disgusting"
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: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Pros: "Quick service, pilots witj trusting calm voices."
Pros: "The bathroom sign that shows if it is busy without going there"
Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "i never made it to tampa and it was because the staff refused to help and offer assistance. SAS staff was the reason i missed my flight."
Cons: "There was three hour deley because the pliain didn't arrive on time."
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "We got off the airplane from Singapore to Houston. We almost missed the fight from Houston to Tampa because we didn't have enough time"
Pros: "The cabin was very warm and uncomfortable for the entire flight and tarmac time. The overhead air wasn't working either so that didn't help. Other than that, the flight was great."
Cons: "Cabin temperature"
Pros: "I purchased a ticket for my 18 year old dog $ 125.00 each way to fly with me to Kalispell and back. She is so old that she can not SEE, HEAR, or BARK any longer. I understood she needed to be under the seat for take off and landing but I was told by the ticket agent and flight attendants on my first flight that she could sit on my lap during the flight. Everything was great on the way there. On the returning flight,.... the flight attendant was so RUDE to me. She saw that after we were airborne and at a steady altitude, I brought my dog "Kacey" up into my lap. She immediately raised her voice and stated the dog needed to remain on the ground. I politely explained her condition BUT she refused to listen to anything. I put my poor old dog back under the seat. After approx 20 min I could hear her patting very loud. I lifted her again and asked a different flight attendant for some water. She was very hot on the floor. Or course, the flight attendant saw my little chihuahua drinking the water and said that after she drinks a little more, she must remain under the seat. By now, my husband is getting annoyed. He tried explaining to the flight attendant the medical needs that my dog has " she's on protein shakes" which were approved their security. and how fragile she is. She can't BARK, SEE, or HEAR. Yes, we will be putting her down soon but we took her to Montana for my daughter to say her GOODBYES!! Sorry to say, but that flight attendant has turned me away from UNITED AIR LINES forever. Feel free to call me 352-804-8344. You may send this to UNITED AIRLINES too!! Thanks Karen Hope"
Pros: "Service was good. Boarding was easy. Snacks were great."
Cons: "Entertainment was limited. On tv and not much to choose from."
Cons: "Not enough or any choice of food but that is ok asyou really do not need it unless you have not planned well, so it is partly my fault that I felt the shortage of food!"
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."
Cons: "Not sitting by my wife."
Pros: "The crew was the best part of the entire awful experience. The pilots let people tour the cockpit and the stewards were very accommodating considering their rules and restrictions. With so many delays, we were able to disembark the plane and come and go as we needed till we were able to finally board for takeoff."
Cons: "We all received updates every thirty minutes with a new departure time and each time we were supposed to depart, there was another delay. The first delay was caused by a seat cushion floating device not being on the plane (hour delay right there) and then for the next three and a half hours, we all were constantly being delayed due to rain. The rain was not their fault but had that cushion been properly stocked on the plane, we would have missed the storm and been on our way. A two-hour flight became an eight-hour hell. Not to mention, the plane itself smelled like a seedy bar bathroom, I had to tuck my legs underneath myself because there was absolutely no legroom, and my row mate was a belligerent drunk. Getting home at 5 am Monday morning and going straight to work was not ideal. Would have been nice to be home on the same day that my flight was scheduled."
Cons: "not that it is the fault of the airline, but it was turbulent flight"
Cons: "Boarding by group is ridiculous. Should be back of the plane people after kids & wheelchairs. One small bag of pretzels & a cup of drink. JetBlue gives many choices of snacks & whole can of drink. DirecTv - $7.99, JetBlue is free. We were a party of 3 that picked our seats to be together. Got to the airport & our seats were split up by desk clerk & she didn't even inform us of seat assignment change. She also put 2 of us in the Exit row without informing us. Did not know we were assigned to Exit row until we boarded. Our overhead bins were full with other passengers carryons. This should not be. Why can't passengers use their own overhead bins. Stewardess would not help us, she said find a spot up front, if not you'll have to check carryons. Terrible."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Lost luggage twice!!"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Changed gate to another terminal at the last minute, we made it on time buy with an infant and a toddler taking a bus in a raining day was tough."
Cons: "My trip was for my dad's quadruple bypass surgery and the date was changed. I was told by Price Line I would need to pay $400 as fee to change my trip. I received your email so I contacted United directly and they said there was a $200 fee which could be reimbursed since it was a medical situation."
Pros: "The new aircrafts are great! More room for everything! Love flying United!"
Cons: "The flight attendants aren't always the most friendliest"
Cons: "Took way to long to finish boarding so we were very delayed. This becomes almost a punishment to those who board on time. Also, the flight crew was very loud (I was seated in the last row and they were not at all concerned about the volume of their conversations)."
Pros: "I was pleased to get in early."
Cons: "Seats are too small to be comfortable."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "If the seats get any closer or smaller they might as well double stack. I am of average height and weight so this is disappointing. The plane was sold out so it's not like UA is hurting"
Pros: "After many flights with United, I am always pleased with the level of customer service. I've only encountered friendly staff from the skycaps to the captains and everyone inbetween. I have never felt like I'm just a warm body filling a plane seat."
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Cons: "I was in the center bulkhead seat with an very oversized man on the aisle seat with a "service dog". It was not a service dog in the sense that it was all over the place--on my feet and in the aisle where it tripped a stewardess more than once and she told him it couldn't be in the aisle. So it pushed over to my seat because the guy was just to big to share his legroom. It shredded napkins the man dropped which a trained dog would not do. it bounced his tray table up causing him to drop his two vodkas. I had to have the stewardess tell him to move his arm and body out of my seat so I could stow my tray for landing. When waiting for my ride outside the dog was off lease and ran into the pickup lanes where the man had to chase him down. A true service dog would never behave like that."
Pros: "It was a perfect flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and overall flight was good"
Cons: "Half way through the movie I bought to watch on my screen there was an announcement made by the captain and when my movie came on the sound wouldn't work, the flight attendant just said sometimes that happens and I could try to ask for a refund."
Cons: "Wi-Fi wasn't available"
Cons: "This was the flight from hell. Terrible uncomfortable seats. Could not get the monitor turned off and out of my eyes. Plus we were delayed 4 hours in this crappy airport only to get on a really crappy plane. We were supposed to arrive in Tampa before 10 but wound up getting in like a red eye at 1230 am. Lost out on our ride home and we were so exhausted. I cried most of this flight home 2 1/2 hour flight. Nice staff but crappy plane. I am waiting to get a call to get reimbursed for my loss of time at work and the missed ride home."
Pros: "The cookie was wonderful . I was shaped like a waffle & had caramel inside. The package even instructed how to warm it up over the top of my coffee cup. Also, all the United personnel were great!"
Cons: "Our flight departure was delayed from Tampa to Chicago cause they switched planes. Thank God I didn't miss my connection flight."
Pros: "Entertainment should really be N/A. Landing was a little hard but all in all it was a good flight."
Cons: "Everything was very smooth. No issues."
Cons: "United is a bare bones airline with poor everything. Flight attendants that project ther roll MAINLY as safety technicians, uncomfortable seats (not to mention right packing. Booked this flight when it was listed as Luftstansa, but should have made another choice when I saw it was United."
Pros: "The plane was very clean, modern, and it just felt safe. The crew is excellent, and the flight took less than three hours."
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour. Boarding was a bit of a problem, there was a miscommunication of who boarded first and who would board next so the boarding process was a bit delayed and disorganized. No entertainment was offered."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Instead of a full can of soda with glass of ice, just recieve a glass with v ice and a bit of soda from the can."
Pros: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Pros: "The crew was mostly friendly. One crew member didn't look too happy to be there, but the rest were quite friendly. The flight took off on time or earlier. We landed and started exiting the plane about 15 minutes earlier than expected which is always good. Even though you had to pay for the entertainment, they did provide one channel without paying and played a couple tv episodes."
Cons: "I don't really have any complaints, it was a good trip."
Pros: "The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. I had just flown in with united from Hawaii and landed 6. 15 am that morning and the employees assisted as I was not familiar with the airport. Will definitely fly united again."
Pros: "Seats where ok and they gave beverage"
Cons: "Literally no leg room space"
Cons: "The crew did not seem to enjoy their jobs and can the seats get any more uncomfortable? It really is okay to put some padding in the seat cushions. Is it really necessary to charge for the movies?"
Pros: "Willingness to check carry ons for sold out flights"
Cons: "Choosing of seats process. My traveling partner and I did not get to sit together on way home. Everyone was nice and got a free upgrade but would have been nice to sit together"
Pros: "Getting to Tampa"
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours in the airport and landing in Tampa 3 hours before I had to work... In the MORNING"
