Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"I just for my TSA. So security line is short and upgraded to one group up. I do think the ground crew should learn new way of boarding - the passengers sitting in higher number seat should board first to prevent traffic jam."
Cons: "Everything. Major delay, lost my vacation time"
Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."
Pros: "I paid for a full seat and the person next to me was so overweight, I had the use of less than 2/3 of my seat. My rifgt shoulder, neck and back was very sore when I got off the plane from lack of any movement."
Cons: "Severely overweight people should not be forced onto another adult if they cannot fit in their own seat."
Pros: "Newer plane with slightly more room"
Pros: "Nice crew and reasonable seats. With only 20-30 on the flight there was plenary of room and to spare to lay down across the empty seats (a sad reality)."
Cons: "Given the circumstances not much. I hope we return to full planes and less difficult travel scenarios that enable it."
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with my other flight"
Pros: "The flight attendant was awesome. She was extremely friendly and very welcoming."
Cons: "Because if the delay from LAX, I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa. The ladies were able to help me get on a flight that left a 3 hours later. It would’ve been nice if AA had let the connecting flight people know this could happen."
Pros: "They got me home eventually"
Cons: "Timeliness was awful. Late crew delayed the flight 50 min. Then ripped cargo net resulted in cargo shift."
Pros: "Not much, but I guess I finally got to my desitination"
Cons: "They cancelled 2 of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again, even if it's the cheapest option."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "My bag got lost"
Pros: "The seat was great"
Cons: "Cabin crew - service"
Cons: "More space."
Cons: "Needed better food selection"
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Couldn’t. Ate, slept, woke, ate and landed. Too easy"
Cons: "Commuter jet boarding at DCA is going to stink until the new terminal is completed. Just is."
Pros: "Pilot made up time from Montrose to Dallas. 737 is more comfortable than some of the planes in use currently."
Pros: "Great service and entertainment options"
Pros: "Crew is helpful, seats comfortable, flight and baggage on time. Food was good for the airline."
Cons: "International connection experience is awful. I understand that AmericanAirlines is not responsible but no help or explanation was provided either."
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick, and improvement has been made with people waiting for their boarding group to be called from crowding the boarding line. The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Several seat changes had to be made, but it all worked out."
Pros: "My favorite part was after we all got off, the man helping everyone get their luggage said take one down and pass it down if it’s not yours. It was genius!"
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and in-flight entertainment was good, including easy access to power ports."
Cons: "Delayed about an hour due to weather. However, another 2 hours spent screwing around sitting on the plane after boarding because no one anticipated DCA restrictions. Then on arrival sat another 30 minutes waiting for a gate. Adding insult to injury, took about 40 minutes to get luggage. Weather is understandable, but the rest was just mismanagement."
Pros: "With my frequent flier status, I get some perks on American, but by using the Boeing 777 instead of the Airbus BA uses, we had comfortable coach seats, easy boarding and good entertainment."
Cons: "Food is still just okay, but after all, it's coach."
Pros: "Boarding staff helped me change to a seat that was suited better for my child and I- I was SO grateful. During the flight, flight staff made sure my child was happy/comfortable which meant a lot to me."
Cons: "The normal things- better cushioned seats with some lumbar for those of us with back/nerve issues; a little wider seat options in economy for heavier people or those with lap infants; Honestly I’m reaching because I was just really happy with my flight/plane/crew service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost two hours due to crew staffing issues."
Pros: "We really enjoyed our flights with American Airlines. From the counter to the stop on the plane everyone was great to work with and very friendly"
Pros: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Pros: "CRJ 900s have more leg room than expected"
Pros: "Great crew. Nice passengers."
Cons: "Food not so good"
Pros: "The American Airlines crews and people manning the desk erred very professional. Yes, this particular flight was conducted by American for Iberia under a share code. So whatever horror stories you have heard of about European Iberia flights, the one I took was fine. But the airline's crew is being let down."
Cons: "In Chicago, our flight was delayed at least three hours for a "GPS update." The crews said the software wasn't even handshaking. Okay. But I have a feeling this is common, and wish the airline would figure out a way to conduct updates, safely, without impacting everyone's schedule. My wife flew through same connection on the same airline a week later. And her flight was canceled. Maybe for the same issue? Unsure. It could have been a a bad luck streak."
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "There was a lot to see"
Cons: "The screens were severely delayed and frustrating."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Cons: "Completely ignored for beverage service"
Cons: "Poor communication Delays -3 hrs"
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Pros: "The flight wasn't totally packed, so no one got kicked off. There was room for all of the carry-on baggage. The staff was friendly and courteous. Flight was not on time, but early! Never have an issue with American!"
Cons: "The only thing that concerned me about this flight was that immediately when we left the ground, there was a very strange noise that occurred and stayed until we were above the clouds. Made me and a number of passengers concerned because none of us had ever heard such a noise from a flight ever."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and flights were on time."
Cons: "Crew could have been a little more friendly and the planes were a bit dated...although I know AA is in the process of replacing their fleet."
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."
Cons: "One poor attitude flight attendant."
Pros: "Everything was great their wasn't enough clarification as to what airline I was fliying. It said Japan air on my confirmation email but it would up being through American Airlines. The experience through American was superb but I would of liked clarity on such airline I was going to fly with."
Pros: "Crews are very friendly, thank you"
Cons: "One flight attendant in my section (23H), plonked food down on the tray with a curt, "passengers-are-a-nuisance" attitude. Her male colleague, when I asked about a spoon for the tub of ice cream said "It's there. If you can find it, you can eat it." I am a 71 yr old woman, and was shocked to be spoken to with such impertinence. Had I not already been travelling for16 hrs, having started the day in the Occupied Territories, I would have reported him to the senior person on board. I was just too tired."
Pros: "There were too many gate changes ."
Cons: "When the pilot took off at LGA he said "everyone here is trying to take off at the same time" so we'd be delayed by 30 min. Not once was there a mention of any other reason. By the time we got to DC I had JUST missed my connecting flight. It was listed nowhere on the departures screen and I realized I had to take an outdoor bus to the other half of the "c" terminal which was very confusing. I got there and had missed the connecting flight and stand in line for 20 min for someone to tell me that I would be stuck in DC overnight. At this point rain had started pouring and they told me that because my mishap was due to weather they would provide no meal or hotel voucher. Weather was not the issue and I was stuck in DC overnight by myself and not compensated for hotels or meals."
Pros: "No food, drinks were late but given alcohol without charge."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess as needed crew members that knew Spanish. Plane overloaded so had to hard check bags."
Pros: "How comfortable the seats were. How nice and pleasing the crew were to the passengers"
Cons: "How long it takes to be seated. I suggest you seat passengers by seat (after the people in wheelchairs and with baby carriages). First class first then whoever sits behind them and do on. Which basically is being seated by your seat number. Seat 1A first then seat 1B and so on"
Cons: "Not only was it cancelled but the next am flight was booked"
Pros: "Crew amazing"
Cons: "Flight length difference even with non stop"
Pros: "Great Entertainment options and meals"
Cons: "A bit more space for legs and more courtesy from cabbin attendants"
Pros: "It’s actually United airline in service. The first flight from Brussels to Washington, everything was great! The crews were amazing, food was surprisingly good. The flight from Washington to Los Angeles was extremely terrible, crews were rude and impatient. Service is like budgeted airlines."
Cons: "More comparable service throughout the journey."
Pros: "How the cabin windows were adjustable, great drink selections thank you!"
Cons: "One lady with a bob just hated her life working with a bad attitude, definitely made me uncomfortable"
Cons: "The food! And 21 yo to drink let 18yo drinks"
Cons: "Late crew. Slow to depart added to delay. Arrival blocked by equipment in the gate, so we waited to get access to the terminal. 20 min after gate arrival, still no bags. Then one truck of luggage on the announced carousel and then...nothing. Secretly, the remaining bags were appearing on a differen"
Pros: "Foot rests are nice"
Cons: "Mediocre food Excellent staff"
Pros: "They were OK"
Cons: "Terrible business class seating. You have to climb over your neighbor to go use the rest room."
Pros: "Seats were okay—good leg room."
Cons: "Exhorbitant baggage fees!! Will never fly Brussels Air again as a result."
Pros: "Economy plus was so roomy and the crew was very attentive and nice."
Pros: "Breakfast , comfort"
Pros: "The flight was fine, despite the distance."
Pros: "Delayed by 2 hours"
Cons: "We left late because they were waiting for people from another flight that got canceled to transfer to our flight, and even with the delay, one of my bags got lost. I was the third person to check in for the flight, so I'm not sure how that happened."
Pros: "I felt spoiled with all the service and the ice cream was a special treat. I had never gotten ice cream on an oversea trip. Thanks."
Cons: "I wished that some of the children would have left the window blinds down so we could sleep."
Cons: "The video on both movies and tv selections froze every few minutes making it virtually impossible to watch a program. Frustrating on an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "ended up 4x thru the metal detector 4x : 1x in Dublin, 1x in Brussels & 2x in Chicago: terminal 1 & 2!"
Cons: "Es united, no se puede esperar mucho de ellos. El snack para 5 horas son unos pretzels y el entretenimiento lo cobran. Lo único bueno es que aun con un aviso en la pantalla pude ver el final del partido de Champions, por el resto,.... compañía a evitar."
Cons: "Tea - disgusting brown liquid! What about a tea bag, or I gladly would take just a cup of hot water to brew my own. Sandwiches: turkey with cheese or cheese. I am allergic to milk (common allergy), you put milk products everywhere. Vegan is the only option, sadly it is usually some sort of Asian food and I am not Asian, have a gag reflex when I smell Indian food. This was not Air India flight, but smelled like one!!! Will avoid flying with United. Somehow, although I booked on purpose with Brussels Air, without my consent (!!!) I was sold tickets for United operated flight. Please, don't tell me that customers are your #1 priority, because they are NOT!"
Cons: "no electricity outlets"
Cons: "The plane was very old. No outlet to plug electronics. Small screens for video"
Pros: "Good food, entertainment options, communication from pilot"
Cons: "none of the flight attendants seemed to be friendly- literally all of them were neutral or slightly rude at best. Not impressed."
Pros: "indulged by the service and plenty of food"
Pros: "Beyond one or two friendly crew members, not much."
Cons: "We booked our flights round trip on united.com, but when we arrived at the airport for our return flight from Budapest to D.C., we were told we were on standby and might not be given seats (despite paying full price for the fare months ago). Brussels Airlines, the codeshare partner, blamed United. United blamed Brussels airlines. We are the flight, but my wife and I were seated separately. When I noticed several seats empty after the plane had finished boarding and asked the head flight attendant if my wife and I might not together, she refused, saying they weren't going to give us a free upgrade. When we went to drop off our bags for the next leg of the flight, from Brussels to Dulles, the bag check counters we're severely understaffed and we waited almost an hour just to drop off two suitcases. This made us nearly miss our flight and required us to sprint through the airport and beg to cut the security line. After boarding, my entertainment screen stopped working, though they did manage to fix it a couple of hours into the flight. Needless to say, this was less then a stellar experience."
Pros: "The flight was smooth. Boarding was a bit nerve wracking as a neighboring bin was not closed completely until just before take off."
Cons: "The bathrooms were poorly maintained. There was no toilet paper and there was tons of paper on the floor. I was anxious that a piece of TP was going to be stuck to my shoes when I returned to my seat. The flight crew did clean it up. I'm not a frequent flier, but was taken by surprise that I didn't need to check in before getting to the airport. I was amazed that the airlines take it upon themselves to assign seats. I think that's a poor decision as a mom and her 2 small kids were scattered about the plane. Fortunately, people were willing to shuffle around to allow the mom to sit with her kids."
Pros: "Excellent service and a safe flight."
Pros: "food service"
Cons: "bagage allowance"
Cons: "Continuously moving departure time back."
Cons: "Even though I have an account with United, and confirmed that I was a vegetarian both online, and on the flight heading to Europe, my meal wasn't entered. It worked out really well because I was sitting close to the front and they had pasta dishes available, but this is not the first time that United and its partners have "lost" or "mishandled" my vegetarian registration. The flight attendant even remarked that sadly, she hears this 'complaint' constantly. The food was good, but there's no reason that my meal request can't stay in the system."
Cons: "Delayed of 5 hours without much information. Huge line to passport control By United which i have never seen before."
Pros: "Professional, courteous flight crew. Uneventful flight. When flying at 37000 feet over an ocean, uneventful is a very good thing! :) Deboarding on arrival was quick and efficient."
Cons: "My headphone jack in the seat was broken but they offered to relocate me to a seat that worked. I stayed put and used the United app on my phone."
Pros: "lots of good movie choices"
Cons: "touch screens didn't always work easily"
Pros: "Flight and experience were great."
Cons: "I would expect when I book a Luftansa flight to fly in a Luftansa jet. This flight was carried by United and I did not know that until I arrived at the airport."
Cons: "I chose Luthansa because I was traveling with a bike and they are usually good about not overcharging however after booking the flight, United took over the flight and they have very unfriendly bike policies (200 each way). Usually I will not fly United because of these policies, I think I am done flying any Star Alliance companies."
Cons: "This was a mess as the attendants didn't not have my transfer ticket It took them for ever till the last minute when was called by the Microphone"
Pros: "Even in economy plus, I felt like a first class passenger."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great with lots of variety (good for an 8 hour fight)."
Cons: "There were always lines for the toilets. Limited leg room. Food was meh."
Cons: "Starting at Brussels airport I was questioned as if I was a threat. The lady wore an UA uniform. She asked me questions like these: where do you live when you come to Belgium? What do you do when you are in Belgium? Why do you come to belgium often? Then we were 2 blacks in the last line and we were all selected for "random" check during which the agent touched all parts of my body!!!!! Last, after I ate the food served on board, I went to the bathroom twice, I took I modicum before!!!!"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and timely."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was patronizing."
Pros: "For me, the food wasn't too bad. I had an Indian food meal on the way over, and on the way back a vegetarian one. They also handed out some good sandwiches and snacks, cheese pretsel sandwich, icecream. At least they didn't charge for the water, like on the first leg of the trip!"
Cons: "There was one crew person in particular who was really crabby. I get that they work hard, but..... For instance, I didn't hear what the choices were for dinner due to the overall noise of being on a plane. So I asked her to repeat and she yelled out the choices in an irritable manner. I had ordered a special meal, and she added, "I have no special meal for you." Really negative!"
Cons: "Delayed boarding at Munich airport"
Pros: "Flight wasn't that long. Experience was okay. Flight was full. Attendants did their job. Some were more polite and helpful than others."
Cons: "No request was made for the outbound flight which I want to comment about. At Dulles Airport, I checked in at the Brussels Airline counter, only to be told that since I was on a flight operated by United, then I had to go to the United Airlines counter to check in. At UA, I was handed a boarding pass which advised that my seat will be assigned at the gate. I saw on the monitor where the available seats were-1 window, the remainder middle row. I got the feeling that since I bought a ticket which cost less than what the other United Airlines customers paid for, then I was being relegated to seats that the other travelers didn't desire."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Ran out of food choices and plane was dirty , entertainment center locked up and could not use it"
Pros: "there was one flight attendant who was annoying slow when he spoke over the intercom and paused for long breaks while still breathing into the mic. Very awkward. Everyone else was great though."
Pros: "Helpful crew when I told them that my right leg was causing me severe pain. I asked them to order a wheel chair for me when the plane landed They did so right away."
Cons: "The DVD player at my seat did not work. I was the last one to leave the plane, with the help of some crew members; but no wheelchair was waiting for me. A staff called but was told that no such an order was received and no one was then available to bring me a wheel chair. Later someone in the Cleaning crew made a couple of calls and finally ,10 to 15 minutes later, a wheelchair arrived."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, great staff, food was pretty decent, they were very accommodating and had sufficient drinks and snacks through the flight. I would highly recommend Brussels Airlines."
Cons: "People were not told where to get their transfer boarding passes until last minute. Security check of "random" passengers was overboard. I wasn't one of the passengers who had to undergo the extra security at the gate, but felt bad for those who did. Completely unnecessary.."
