Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Fix internet"
Pros: "The AA staff was incredibly nice to us. The facilities our check in at DCA that got us on faster and the staff at CLT very nicely got us on to an earlier flight. They were awesome!"
Cons: "The entertainment options are great but the interface is annoying and difficult to use. -connecting to the WiFi was wonky -working between the apps and browser page was annoying -rewind/fast forward controls overly sensitive"
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Cons: "My flight time was changed because the crew was not on time. Then it was changed back after everyone had already made accommodations for their connections, me included."
Pros: "Not happy having to spend the extra money to fly 1st class because the flight from Phoenix was so terrible."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "Pilots and staff on plane briliant"
Cons: "Counter staff at boarding gate. Not friendly, not helpful. Very disappointing"
Pros: "Getting off the plane"

Cons: "No screens in seats or outlets for phones. Old planes. Never again."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Flight was 55 minutes late leaving making me miss my connection home. Awesome."
Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."
Pros: "Flight Crew were professional and accommodating throughout the trip."
Cons: "AA should inform customers via its App when they are the carrier for another airline. That way, one would know which terminal at LHR to go to. Check in was not good as there was no staff to assist or even an information kiosk in the immediate area. Had to go looking for one with all my luggage; they were having a group 'chat'. Then, instead of being helpful when asked to change seats, commenced to quiz me about why and what I did during my trip."
Pros: "Plane was surprisingly spacious in coach and very clean."
Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Pros: "The gate was close to security, quick embarkation, departure on time, kind and professional service, decent size aircraft and overhead bins."
Cons: "Kind of dated, wifi didn’t work."
Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "No breakfast"
Cons: "They separated my bags, so I had to wait in Philadelphia for my bag to arrive on next flight 2 1/2 hours latter. Not happy after flying from Sydney."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival; room to stow carry-on's; able to move to vacant row to give both the other guy in my row and me some extra leg room."
Cons: "If the exit row seats are completely vacant, ask the flight attendant EARLY in the boarding process if you can move into them. I asked a good 10 min. prior to departure from the gate and was told I couldn't do it then. The FA let me move after takeoff and the obligatory "You're in exit row seating ..." briefing."
Pros: "Considerate flight attendants. Turned lights down for evening flight, so we could get some rest."
Cons: "Flight was not on time. Time was changed a day prior with no reason explained. No in flight entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "Crew does it’s best under miserable conditions. I love a nonstop flight."
Cons: "We were delayed over half an hour due to a broken tray table. Really. A 5 hour flight has no meals available, not even ones you can buy. Water and drinks were brought around once. ONCE in 5 hours. My husband and I were crammed in Middle seats 2 rows apart. And we had to pay extra to get those. Because they charge to check bags everyone brings their carryons on board."
Pros: "Movies. Safety of flight"
Cons: "Food Too crowed seats no room to breath"
Pros: "Everything was great about my flight from Buffalo. Friendly people, easy boarding and flight was smooth as I expected."

Cons: "5 hr delay"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding went smoothly."
Pros: "The flight was early morning so the plane was basically empty. And the flight was short due to short distance and tail winds. Crew is always friendly and helpful."

Cons: "You wouldn't let me change my flight so I didn't even take it"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Cons: "Seats packed it tight. One less row and a few more inches would be better. Shame the airlines have making more money in mind and not passenger comforts"
Pros: "My flight was late leaving buffalo ny which caused me to miss my connecting flight in Phl.... Never once was this delay communicated to ONE person sitting at the gate in buffalo. I even asked the attendant in buffalo if the plane was present at 1:10 pm and he responded that it would be landing in ten minutes. We were scheduled to board at 1:16 although I am highly disappointed to have gotten home 2.5 hours later than anticipated...communication is my biggest complaint here."

Pros: "Because our first flight to philly was extremely late we were going to be unable to make our connecting flight to Wilmington sooooo had to cancel cour whole vacation to myrtle beach"
Cons: "Read above comments"
Pros: "Plane arrived on time"
Pros: "Big selection of movies if you have the United app."
Cons: "Tiny overheads in the 777 so they took carry-ons from at least half the people on the flight. Out of the hamburger by the time they left Economy Plus. Narrow seats, very little seat pitch. I am not quite 5' 10" and I only have a couple inches between my legs and the seatback. Similarly cramped restrooms."
Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Cons: "Too long of a line to get in the air and a bit long to get to gate"
Cons: "Several delays for maintenance and then plane in our gate when we landed"
Pros: "I enjoy the plus seats with extra leg room"
Cons: "I found your crew quite unfriendly"
Pros: "Flight was quick and uneventful."
Cons: "50 minutes wait on the runway in a very small plane. No room for carry ons"
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable! Was dealing with my ankle and just got stitches removed. Boarded in pre-boarding group! The gate attendant helped a lot with my boarding pass which was on my phone and didn’t work the first time I tried it. The plane was a brand new 737 Max 9. My seat was in first class (2A) is was a nice size seat and comfortable! The flight crew was extremely nice, polite and attentive!"
Cons: "We did hit some turbulence on the trip but nothing major. The person in front of me reclined their seat pretty early in the trip which was fine until I had to use the lavatory. It was a bit of a tight squeeze trying to get out of the row since I was in the window seat. Was a little bit upset that I complied with the carry-on rules and many of the other passengers DID NOT! The flight was over sold and they did ask for volunteers to give up their seats. I wish United would stop doing that!"
Pros: "Stroopwaffles, TVs"
Cons: "They made me check my bag which was ridiculous. It’s been on numerous flights and was smaller than any other bag in the overhead bins"
Cons: "my reservation was cancelled by united with out checking with me."
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options for kids."
Cons: "Older plane, ageing bathrooms etc. Chairs not too comforatable and legroom limited. Staff ok, not particularly helpful or child-friendly. No headsets for kids. Adult earbuds do not work in little ears!"
Pros: "Nice flights attendants"
Cons: "This is not how business class sshould be"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly on board. The gate crew were a little curt, but it was a full flight and they were really trying to get everyone on board quickly so I can't be too upset about that."
Cons: "Few entertainment options - direct TV unavailable for about half the flight, WiFi also unavailable for the same."
Cons: "Overbooked, delay in de-planing and getting luggage"
Pros: "The burger I bought was good."
Cons: "I had to pay for food on a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed appropriately due to weather but staff at United gave out misinformation and apparently not able to keep apace with information some of us passengers finally accessed online from United. The Asheville airport is small and the only restaurant closed - so for 4 hours we were left with no certainty, no food, and incorrect answers. Perhaps it is because airport is small, or the particular staff people were unable to focus. Flight itself was great."
Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."
Pros: "I like the price and the time of the flight. Thank you"
Pros: "The transportation..."
Cons: "There's absolutely no leg room it's the smallest amount of room I have ever experienced on a plane - even the first class is eh - mediocre at best. I am slim and fit and I had very little to no room. Consider someone overweight and they would have to buy 2 seats... united is definitely not my favorite airline..."
Pros: "I liked that it was a fast flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seating was crowded."
Pros: "On time Nice crew No complaints"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Cons: "That I never made it to Dallas and so lost my job. Thanks to unitrd."
Cons: "The entertainment selections were awful for such a long flight. Also there should be meals provided for such a lengthy flight."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was CRAAAAABY!!"
Pros: "I like the United app for ease of checkin"
Cons: "Flying itself is a terrible experience. Cramped seats, food is nonexistent, no wifi"
Pros: "It was in time. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "It was crowded."
Cons: "Severe delays. Disorganized boarding procedures. No internet."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Arrived at designated time"
Cons: "Really only a snack pack and water."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "They cancelled my return flight when I rebooked through united online."
Pros: "Empty flight"
Cons: "I got hit really hard with a drink cart, it left a mark☹️️ Then my luggage came on a separate flight."
Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"
Cons: "Rude staff"
Cons: "Ok for a short flight"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and efficient. The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "The plane is old. It lacks entertainment amenities. Bolt Bus and Grayhound are luxurious in comparison to this United plane."
Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
Pros: "Everything about this flight was satisfactory."
Cons: "Having to pay a baggage fee for the one bag I checked; lack of seat/leg room."
Cons: "The snack offering was not appealing. I understand nut allergy sensitivities but the option was poorly decided."
Pros: "Very nice that my husband and I were upgraded to first class on this short flight. It was a short flight but we were very comfortable for that time."
Cons: "I'm very upset I left an item in the overhead bin and had customer service call over as soon as we realized, but they said it wasn't there. There's no way, it had to be there and they didn't look very hard. I submitted a claim and they still haven't found it."
Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"
Pros: "This was one of the top 5 worst flights. I have over 150k of miles logged. I will do my best to NEVER fly United again."
Pros: "I was in a wheel chair and the crew in the airport made my transitiins within the airport very easy"
Cons: "Plane was small with very loud engine"
Cons: "Dad services they don't care about the passengers"
Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"
Pros: "Price looked good at booking."
Cons: "Old prop plane was grounded 5 min. after our boarding time. Went to several gates to try to hop on another flight but nothing got me to my destination in time -- so a total loss. Tried to cancel by phone (line to gate service was 50+ people deep), and was told I couldn't cancel. Then was told I could. Then was told I had to call back! TOTAL LOSS. Refund is needed."
Pros: "Good FA's, ahead of schedule,"
Pros: "Patrick- flight attendant"
