Noisy squeaky airplane. But smooth flight and arrived early.

Worst airline experience of my life, depending on how the rest of my “customer service” experience goes I may never fly american airlines again.

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "The WiFi could have worked"
Cons: "Social distancing"
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Less turbulence haha"
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "Lots of space"
Cons: "Better movie selections They lost one of our bags :("
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We made thru customs and rescreening and still 18 minutes early. The gate agent literally closed the gate right I front of us. Argued that they closed the flight. AA closed the gate 8 minutes above the minimum 10 minute gate close requirement. We missed our flight and there was no announcement."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and friendly."
Cons: "The crew announced that there was limited food options on the flight (low supply). When a flight is 5 hours long, an adequate amount of food options should be available. Hand towels and toilet paper ran out during flight."
Cons: "All Excellent"
Pros: "The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher."
Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"
Cons: "N/a"
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed for 30 mins by a flight attendant not showing up on time."
Pros: "No major delays. Boarding and exiting was smooth. Got assigned a window seat near front Good service."
Cons: "Long flight from CLT to LAX was warm. Not sufficient cooling and airflow."
Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"
Pros: "How fast they had us in the air (5 min early)."
Cons: "In their rush to leave, they didn't communicate with the on board crew about overhead bins and I was forced to check a priceless item that I purposely wanted with me in the cabin. The overheads were empty above my own seat. I wasn't allowed to go back and reclaim my bag because they had already taken it. And they were completely indifferent to my situation, which isn't surprising given they didn't understand the value of my item. Thus, I had a full blown panic attack for my entire 2 hour flight, my medicine being one of the items also in my now checked bag. It was too late, my bag was taken and thrown under the plane by the time it struck. And the flight attendants also had on perfume that brought on a tension headache due to my sensitivity to scents. Considering they work in a recycled air tube, this seems like a vast oversight on their part and should consider that not everyone can handle even the faintest of perfumes. It may not seem like a big deal to them, because mental illness is still seen as a made up thing, but it was enough of a trigger that I will not fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, even with the blankets we were given."
Pros: "The entertainment system and quality of selections"
Cons: "Sun Light from another passenger’s window was shinning in my eye. But I suppose that’s not Americans fault lol"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and rebooked overnight, then delayed 2-3x. This wasn’t all the airline’s fault, but nevertheless, it was a very mediocre experience."
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall people unless you pay extra."
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"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "I bought the tickets together, but was informed at the ticket counter that i had only purchased tickets—not boarding passes. Boarding passes needed to be purchased by paying extra if my husband and I wanted to sit next to each other. I tried calling the customer service line through kayak and waited on hold for a long time with no indication of wait time. When the gate agent arrived, we asked and were moved to seats next to each other right away. The ticket agent at initial check in was very abrasive and non-solution oriented. if what she was saying was true— that we only paid for tickets and had to pay extra for boarding passes together— that was never made clear during the booking process. It’s unlikely I’ll use kayak again unless I know for sure what I’m buying."
Cons: "The fact that my original seats were not given. The other issue was that Alaska wasn’t my airline but American was. They didn’t even tell me until I got to the gate, moved over to another and then got transferred over to my gate."
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "the fly was on time"
Cons: "I don't like central seats"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "My flight to Frankfurt was a disaster. Delays at LGA caused me to miss the connection. Two very nice AA customer service phone staff attempted to help by booking me on a Lufthansa/United flight out of JFK that same evening. HOWEVER, I got to JFK only to discover I had NOT been ticketed. A lengthy call to AA resulted a a lame apology -“we don’t do that” they claimed, but the had previously! And had booked me, so what the heck was this??? I’m still fuming!"
Cons: "Lies! They rebooked me on a Lufthansa flight out of JFK and I got there only to discover “they had made a mistake.” Utter garbage excuses."
Pros: "Seat"
Cons: "Food, beverages, service"
Cons: "We waited for seven hours while our flight kept getting delayed. We finally switched to another flight and I don’t even know if our original flight ever got off the ground. Frustrating, irritating, disappointing. American Airlines was a huge disappointment"
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Pros: "Quick boarding, on time departure and early arrival. No waiting for a gate at LGA upon arrival - excellent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "The flights were on time"
Cons: "I purchased the flight as a British airways flight when it was really an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Pros: "Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised."
Cons: "Landing was ROUGH"
Cons: "."
Pros: "The flight was painfully uncomfortable for me, as a tall and not particularly small person. I should have known better than to take the window seat (Orlando to DC was painfully uncomfortable because I just don't fit in those seats). The in-flight service was good, but I was glad when this flight was over."
Cons: "Mentioned above"
Cons: "The video screens weren't very good. You had to tap screen multiple times to select a choice."
Pros: "All good"
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "Very nice and easy flight, the crew knew English very well"
Cons: "Everything was delayed, the boarding, the flight, the entrance to the airport when we landed in Liam."
Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Solo que a la 1:10pm le comunique al sobrecargo del vuelo Avianca #928 Lima _ salvador 1010 1: 20 pm hora local me di cuenta que se quedo el anillo de matrimonio en el paso de migración en la bandeja, el sobrecargo me di una instrucción que debía hablar con el encargado del Salvador la Srta Geaninia Gomez indica que como no es pérdida dentro del avión no se hacen responsables, lo que no estoy de acuerdo que me digan eso ya que es trayecto del vuelo que estaba realizando voy a tomar medidas para presentar un reclamo ya que es un valor sentimental ya que ni me dejaron ir a ver estando casi 40 minutos y sentí que no me ayudaron por los menos con una llamada en el departamento."
Pros: "Very nice gate crew, efficient boarding, quick and efficient takeoff"
Cons: "Found out that a lot of Argentinians do not obey the crew rules. Before the seatbelt sign turns off they already start moving to the front of the plane. But off course is not the airline duty to teach manners."
Pros: "The experience was average."
Cons: "While the brakes/ tires issue was not their fault, it's much more helpful to post a 2 hour delay (and surprise us with an earlier boarding) than checking with mechanics every 15 minutes with updates announced but no projected departure time!"
Pros: "I had a great experience. Each flight left and arrived at designated times and the staff were very friendly."
Cons: "I have no complaints about any of my flights during my trip."
Pros: "Left on time arrived at destination early"
Cons: "Stewardess didn't smile was abrupt impatient"
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "Fast wi fi and decent selection of in flight stuff on devices. Landed early!"
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "Everything was very nice."
Pros: "Coach seat in economy. Enough said."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was down for entire flight."
Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."
Pros: "Non stop. Easy boarding and de-planing. Good food"
Cons: "I am claustrophobic and the only opportunity I had to select a seat was when I checked in 24 hrs before the flight. The only aisle seat left was in the back row of the plane. Between the person in front of me fully reclining their seat and my inability to fully recline my own seat (airplane design) and with pepole standing in the aisles waiting for the toilets - I was very uncomfortable for most of the flight. United also had problems with their entertainment system so for an 8 hour long flight, there was much room for improvement."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"
Cons: "I didn’t not like being delayed an entire day because they had a problem with my wife’s name in the system"
Pros: "The planes weren’t overly packed and everyplane was on time"
Pros: "On time, good servicw"
Cons: "Seats not very comfortable"
Cons: "No food or entertainment"
Pros: "I'm sure this flight would have been fine if it wasn't missed due to mechanicals from previous connecting leg."
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""
Pros: "The staff & attendants were friendly & professional. The new United terminal is a very pleasant experience"
Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."
Pros: "Polaris"
Pros: "Flights to be on time"
Pros: "Great service, it had been a while since I flew with United. Impressed with the new plane."
Pros: "Tv"
Cons: "Cramped seats, some rows had 1 person and some had 3. Didnt offer them to people who were cramped.. 4 and a half hour flight and small bag of snacks"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
Pros: "Good seats. Good air hostess - very nice and tried to make jokes."
Cons: "Bought a snack -- terrible Hummus and Pita, but also wanted cheese platter, but they had run out of it. Entertainment was too hard to actually enjoy -- i couldn't download flash on my laptop while in the air."
Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."
Pros: "Nice and smooth ride"
Cons: "All was great!!"
Pros: "Enjoyed the free movies"
Pros: "I need some substance $400 for a flight And you offered me No water or snack"
Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Had to wait 40 minutes for a gate"
Pros: "Sucked. .the boarding process was a cluster.tiny bag of salted ceap..huge snoring man sweating on me in seat"
Cons: "everyrhing"
Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "On time arrived early"
Pros: "The crew was nice to our one year old. And because it wasn't a full flight we were able to give him a seat which saved us!"
Cons: "We're healthy vegans and the snacks aren't friendly for us at all. We brought our own but to have options would have been nice."
Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks Well think it was only water or orange juice available"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the lat flat seat in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"
Pros: "My flight wasn't full so I had no one sitting next to me."
Cons: "Snack wasn't very good"
Cons: "This flight didn't happen."
Pros: "Everything went on schedule and our bulkhead seats were great. Flight was smooth and got in early."
Cons: "The person giving the announcements spoke so quickly and in a monotone way that it was difficult to understand her."
Cons: "Very small plane. I have to valet my carry on which meant removing all my medicine (I am a cancer patient) and my camera and carry them on board with me."
Pros: "No complaints"
Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."
Pros: "Easily the best flight of our entire trip. Airplanes was nicer so the others couldn't help that but the crew was outstanding on this flight. All of them were amazing! Kindness is what the world needs and all three were wonderful. The comfort was also the best on this plane. This was the first time flying with United."
Cons: "Problem was after the flight. My luggage was lost. This was the first trip with United so I'm not sure about the future. This was the first time my luggage has ever been misplaced."
Cons: "No in flight movie!!!"
Pros: "united customer service quickly booked new flight for second leg as I was not going to make it in time"
Cons: "I did not like waking up super early in the morning only to sit at airport for 3 hours because an escape hatch leaked and got the radios wet. only to have the nearest tech over an hour away. and for him to not be able to do anything but let it dry out. Then the flight attendants did not even do a beverage service."
Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"
Pros: "The plane didn't crash."
Cons: "1) The plane was late because the crew didn't get enough sleep. 2) I was told that my flight would be at a specific gate. It was a long walk to this gate. Then I was told that the gate had been changed. Now I have a even longer walk back and then had to walk to a new gate. 3) This plane was late also. We were told the plane was still in the hanger. (Are you kidding me?) Then we had to wait some more for the clean up crew to do their thing and then the flight crew had to do their pre-flight check. Now to add insult to injury, the stewardess to us that the Wi-Fi was out on the plane. I was done and said I'll never fly United again! '"
Pros: "The flight to OHare was fine. No problems whatever. There was no entertainment. The juice was ok."
Cons: "The snack I could not eat for dietary restrictions."
Cons: "The turbulence"
