Pros: "Great flight crew!!"
Cons: "Better food menu!"
Pros: "Flight attendant was a little rude"
Pros: "No issues - which is what I expect"
Cons: "USB chargers on seats"
Pros: "During boarding the first class cabin attendant gave me water so I could take a pill I had forgotten."
Cons: "Lav could have been cleaner. Boarding area at airport is small and crowded for all airlines. Stairs to aircraft instead of ramps."
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time. Besides that. Not much."
Cons: "Having to us use our cell phones to watch a few channels was terrible. No movie. No help. You were just left on your own. Total of waste of time. Give us a monitor. Give us options. You are American Airlines, not Allegiant Air"
Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"
Cons: "They left me! I know I was a “runner” but they knew I was just already going through security and it’s only a 3 terminal airport! They even asked if there were any runners!"
Cons: "No amenities at airport"
Pros: "The check-in was pleasant. I was treated politely, the staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "People at the gate while boarding were quite rude."
Pros: "People were ok"
Cons: "The boarding process is a mess at this airport. Feel sorry for anyone with accessibility issues. Stairs to all planes."
Pros: "The flight was early to arrive. There was also a rather frightening bit of turbulence, and the pilot explained why it had occurred, which I found very reassuring."
Cons: "The food was definitely below average. It's virtually all carbohydrates.Other airlines provide you with a printed description of the menu options, so it's easier to make a choice. "Chicken or pasta" doesn't give the passengers any idea of what they are actually choosing. This time the chicken dish was served with pearl couscous, so it was basically pasta as well. The salad I was given was brown and wilted, and while the cabin attendants were kind enough to give me two salad that were in better shape (after meal service), I just think that quality control should have prevented a inedible salad from being served in the first place. I am also extremely opposed to American Airlines Transatlantic luggage fees. Since I was moving abroad rather than taking a short trip, I was not pleased about paying 100 USD for a second bag on top of an already expensive flight."
Cons: "Super tiny seats"
Pros: "Ontime. Friendly staff. Newer plane. Large overhead."
Cons: "Although I understand turbulence is a common experience during a flight, I would have appreciated a bottle of water from crew after they suspended service."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"
Pros: "Good service."
Pros: "On time and quick."
Cons: "Have to pay for WiFi"
Cons: "The cabin heat was way too high, I actually was sweating. Boarding took 35 minutes"
Cons: "Very crowded, rude passengers"
Pros: "Very pleasant staff"
Cons: "Inability to charge cell phone, poor location of TV, & inability to hear the music & movie well"
Pros: "Check-in staff very helpful"
Pros: "Loved the entertainment features. Great movie selection!"
Pros: "Perfect quiet comfy flight"
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "GREAT CREW! PILOT MADE UP TIME IN THE AIR DUE TO YHE DELAYED FLIGHT OUT OF MIAMI"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO BAD WEATHER IN MIAMI."
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Cons: "The leg room for seats were horrible especially anyone passed 5 ft 7in."
Pros: "Service was good. Entertainment system was excellent. Flight took almost an extra 45 minutes to arrive and was quite bumpy at the end. Not sure if it could have been avoided."
Pros: "Bottom tier entertainment provided"
Cons: "Advertised wifi not functional. Limited TV access (1 8" tv for every 12-16 seats) poor programming random NBC clips and partial episodes) and terrible movie. No selection/plane tracker"
Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"
Cons: "Very!! Dissatisfied & disappointed with AA. Finally took off over 3 hrs late. At that point everyone was thrilled that we were going versus being canceled. Had food in business class which tasted like it had been overcooked for three hours"
Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but on the outbound flight, the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using on-board Wifi, as well as 2 TV shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Cons: "The flight attendant chastised my husband loudly when doing a pre check before take off. She reached over and yanked his charger our of the socket and stood over him and reprimanded him for not being on airplane mode. The passengers in front were turning around while the passengers behind were laughing. It was excessive and inappropriate. The passengers behind him had tray tables down and video games out and when she addressed them it was in a respectful manner, but when addressing my husband, it was disrespectful and unprofessional. Seemed to be discrimination as she did not treat any other passengers like this. I wish I would have captured this on video to share with American Airlines as I do not think they would condone her behavior. Her name was Marlene and she needs additional training regarding customer service."
Cons: "American delayed the flight 7 times before cancelling it. They then put me on a flight 7 hours after the initial departure time. That flight was delayed 7 times and then they cancelled it. I wasted 10 hours at the airport."
Pros: "on time..."
Pros: "That I made it alive."
Cons: "I lost my keys and not one single person has contacted me about my lost set of keys, even when I left my contact info with them."
Cons: "Having to pay extra 24 hours in advance for a seat. There were no available "free" seats 24 hours before flight time."
Pros: "The flight was very comfortable and all was good."
Cons: "It would be nice if it offered some kind if entertainment Not everyone has a portable device.."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Crew wasn’t very friendly. Seemed as if customer experience is no longer a goal. Could do with some smiles & improved service. Seat was comfortable though & pilots did a wonderful job flying. Great take-off & Landing."
Pros: "The view."
Cons: "Landed early by a bit. Made to wait on runway 30 minutes before we could park at gate. Figure it out United - maybe if you worked with your airport partners better they’d help you the 1 or 2 times you’re actually early."
Pros: "The stewardess was super nice! On time and no problems."
Cons: "Bad gate idea to have so many flights going off at once. Very confusing when the intercom would get cut off because another plane would start boarding."
Cons: "Seats were super small, people kept bumping us, and so did the crew, without even say sorry"
Pros: "Although there were a lot of passengers on this flight, the crew was able to get everyone on the plane in an efficient manner."
Cons: "We were delayed about 2 and a half hours because of the weather in Denver. I was not comfortable at all in my seat because the passenger beside me had his knee and elbow all in my personal space. I asked an attendant if it was okay for me to move and she stated that it was okay, but United switched a lot of passengers flights around so there wouldn't be any empty seats. I was stuck beside the man, all hanging out of my seat, because there wasn't an open seat available. Thank goodness the flight was only 2 hours long. Overall my experience with United was terrible and I will not be flying with them anymore."
Pros: "There was room for 26+ standby passengers to board. Power outlets & more leg room in Economy Plus."
Cons: "No reclining! No screens, power outlets didn’t work well, not enough room for carryon baggage. No food other than pretzels. Drinks took a long time."
Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"
Cons: "Don’t use United out of Charlotte"
Cons: "The flight was late getting out of Charleston and we had a very long walk in Chicago. By the time we got to the gate mos people had already boarded. It could have been much worse if we had not nearly ran to the gate. Other than that all was good."
Pros: "Most of my flights this time had more legroom than I’ve been seeing lately. Very pleasant flight and nice not to be so cramped. The flight also left from the same terminal in Denver as my previous flight. With a 1 hour connection that was wonderful. Keep that up, United! The crew also came by regularly with offers of water. Much appreciated."
Cons: "Naturally no food except pretzels."
Pros: "The landing was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced on the Belize runway. And that is saying alot, as the runway is very rough!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "That you had to pay for your entertainment--after all the fees and extra charges you pay when you buy the ticket, you would think the entertainment/TV would be free, or at least just the flight map."
Pros: "The respect for the time and the organization to boarding"
Cons: "My baggage did not arrive to my destination"
Pros: "We were serviced in the way we expect from United."
Cons: "4 hr delay"
Pros: "It was what I expected, a long flight in economy. Nothing special -nothing terrible. Check in went smoothly."
Cons: "One restroom was inoperative, so there were long waits to use the restroom. For long flights, it would be nice if all restrooms were available."
Pros: "The crew members were great"
Cons: "VERRRRRYYYY OUTDATED"
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized. Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines. Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Pros: "I liked that we didn't crash into snowy mountains. I like that we landed."
Cons: "OMG. First class seat "broken" - wasn't really able to lean back because it went "too far" into row behind me. Nope - that's actually how the chair is designed. Was asked to sit upright the entire 7 hour flight. IFE spotty at best. It kept rebooting and kicking me and others out. I guess food was "okay" as I honestly don't remember it at all. This is my last of 10 years at 1K with United. Moving airlines this year."
Pros: "On time and not over booked."
Cons: "small plane, but not crowded so not so bad."
Cons: "No food on plane only a tiny bag of snacks"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Cons: "Seat was inoperable and frozen in upright position in business class cabin. Last to order entree had only 2 of 7 choices remaining and fish was extremely unappetizing presentation."
Pros: "Boarding and crew attendants were courteous and helpful. Flight left on time and arrived early. Luggage arrived and my time inChicago was short."
Cons: "Seats crowded but I was fortunate to not have a person in middle seat. Implied tv was free but system kept asking for my credit card."
Cons: "Getting bk to anchorage @midnight instead of the origibal time of 2:00 due to not having a fuckin pilot in new orleans"
Pros: "Nice crew, on time"
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Pros: "overhead space for luggage and TV monitors for entertainment"
Cons: "My experience on this flight was not good. The crew was not really quite friendly in my opinion. Then my luggage did not arrive with me in the same flight. When it eventually showed up the next day it was damaged. The Agent at the counter was very unfriendly and unhelpful- he essentially said "if you read the fine print on your ticket purchase, you'll see that external damages are not covered by any airlines ". Sad!"
Pros: "Easy to board friendly"
Cons: "The snack food selection, price on wifi"
Pros: "I'll always contact kayak for my up coming flights"
Pros: "Thank you for a job well done!"
Pros: "United delivered us to Anchorage so late that we missed the very last flight out of Anchorage to Homer. We had to pay for a hotel room and full price tickets to fly the very next morning. Because United delivered us to Anchorage so late, we had to spend so much money on the hotel and next day flights. Until this point I have always been happy with United but I don't think we can go with United anymore after this."
Pros: "The flight crew on this route is one of the best that ive ever had the pleasure to have been served by. The ladies were extremely helpful and were always out helping serve the people"
Cons: "The cost of the entertainment and that it didn't work all the way. Lost like the last two hours of the flight, not very good especially having to pay for it"
Cons: "Missed it due to delays"
Pros: "Perfect, the service is great !!"
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Customer service was excellent,very friendly."
Cons: "Delay of the plane and every show you have to pay for even the flight map, that was very disappointing."
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "two hours late without any reason given, and forced to check my bag on the prior flight to the final destination meaning I can't get it at gate side. Numerous flights to Cedar Rapids through United have been canceled or delayed without any explanation - I don't have faith in United anymore and will not book with them again."
Cons: "At the check in people were so rude giving me a lot of trouble with the baby food! Also it's a lot of charge for an extra bag"
Pros: "United is reputable. I like the trust of knowing what to expect, especially on international flights."
Cons: "Both United flights, to and from, were delayed. In both incidents, it seemed that our aircrafts were switched out. Thus., we waited for another to arrive. In the MEX - ORD flight, we stood waiting with our boarding groups for at least 30 minutes. United seems to do well on my domestic flights, but international, I may consider a different airline next time."
Cons: "Last row seats. Nothing of space, man seating next to me in the isle seat couldn't accomodate his legs inside the available space."
Pros: "Because of our incident in LV, This flight was out of Denver. The flight attendants were fantastic! The staff was very helpful, and was able to get seats together."
Cons: "They had issues with the wifi, so there was no entertainment."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off. The constant repeating of the Dish commercials while in dead air space is so annoying I will never consider Dish as a provider.! Please play more than one entertaining video than repeating the one about alligators (crocodiles?)."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
Pros: "The staff was helpful my flight to vages was awesome they blew me away so really my high marks are for them the flight into Newark the crew seemed tired less engaged not rude just Kurt friendly yet short"
Pros: "Ive had a hip injury so walking is problematic. I was worried about my 45 minute transfer time in Ohare. The boarding attendant at Charleston ordered a wheelchair to meet me. I got to my plane as it boarded. A distance I couldn't have walked, much less in the time allotted."
Cons: "Not enough time between the two flights for the distance between the two terminals."
