Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "No reason to delay a 55 minute flight to make it over 4 hours just for rain. Absolutely ridiculous and I will be calling and complaining to be compensated for my time."

Cons: "Thank you"

Cons: "the AA flight arriving to Charlotte experienced a door malfunction that delayed deplaning by 15 minutes. Not a big deal unless you had a close connection to begin with. Result was a dead sprint to Charleston gate where no attempt to hold the plane for those passengers. Also, a black, middle-aged woman with short hair working the ticket counter had the personality of a piece of cardboard with zero responsiveness. AA should reconsider who it places to interact with the general public."

Cons: "It apparently was not noticed until the last minute that the plane parked at the designated gate was not the right plane. Just as we were ready to board, had to change gates. the announcement of new gate was not in clear English. Instead of saying 'C' as in Charlie, just C3, which sounded like a D, which would have been a concourse change. Little things, but they add up, when your previous flight was late on arrival."

Cons: "Last to board with a young child."

Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."

Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."

Cons: "No accommodation for delays and overnight stay in airport."

Cons: "The seats were so close together! I was between two men, and one was spitting tabaco into a cup. It was terrible."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We had to walk outside to board the plane. My husband has two bad hips and we had to walk up a flight of stairs to board the plane. The plane was extremely small and our sits were located in the rear of the plane. The bathroom had an unpleasant odor."

Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew."

Cons: "No power outlets or USB ports on a 5+ hour flight. Not great for business."

Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"

Pros: "Flight was good, there was no entertaiment, so i put one, but the flight was only almost 4 hrs. At night."
Cons: "I like the service I got and the service I got. I have back surgery and walk with assistance and the lady that helped me a the the birding desk took care of my needs and it was so much appriciated.. Thank you."

Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."

Pros: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours which caused us (me, wife, 4yo, and 7mo) to miss our connection from LAX to HNL. We had to stay the night in LA and take a morning flight to HNL. But despite the delay, the gate agent in Charlotte did a good job of updating people and remained very polite even when it was clear people were getting frustrated and starting to get sharp with him. Pilots did a good job of trying to make up as much time as possible. I can't remember how much time they shaved off but I think it was more than 20 minutes. Customer service in LA was solid too. Went to CSD to get our tickets changed. They had already changed our flight to a 8 AM flight. We asked if we could take a later flight because of the kids and he was able to accommodate. They also gave us vouchers for 3 meals and a night at the Holiday Inn. Having a delayed flight is never fun but the AA staff was amazing throughout."

Pros: "On time Friendly attendants Great service Mike in First Class was awesome"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "AC didn't work and no beverage service or WiFi"

Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"

Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

Pros: "Im very upset with the flight"
Cons: "What you guys did its unfair I paid for a reservation. The way you run the business its not right"

Cons: "British airways?"

Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."

Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"

Pros: "I loved not having to change planes."
Cons: "It was VERY cold on the plane."

Pros: "Tthe crew was very friendly"
Cons: "No food"

Pros: "Nothing. Someday the airline industry will be disrupted and we'll all remember this and say, "can you believe what we used to put up with, and how expensive it was?!""
Cons: "No decent food available, they ran out. People allowed to play movies loudly with no headphones for 5 hours straight. Uncomfortable seats with no cushioning."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Massive delay. Waited over 4 hours to get on plane and more wait time on the tarmac. Unhappy flight attendants"

Cons: "Total incompetence. Navigational system broken, two hours on the tarmac, unboarded, then reboarded one at a time, then out to the tarmac and then back to the gate to do FAA paperwork before finally being over 4 hours late. And they don't really care. Very sad."

Pros: "(1) The flight was overbooked and boarded late. (2) The crew and flight attendants flying to NY had more baggage space than the passengers. (3) The pilot and crew were excellent and I enjoyed my overall flight."
Cons: "Stop overbooking the plan. I don't mind paying more"

Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."

Pros: "Nice flight attendant A full can of soda"
Cons: "Board on the tarmac Tiny plane Hardly any overhead storage Had to sit on the taxiway for another 30 min once we landed"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Smooth flight. Early."
Cons: "In Charlotte the kiosks were not acting right. The agents were still exceptional but you could tell they were frustrated"

Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"

Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."

Cons: "The seats were cramped and uncomfortable. The entertainment options are very limited on a cross-country trip. I also don't see how there are no charging options at all."

Cons: "AA gate attendant assigned two of us to the same seat."

Pros: "the flight attendants were very professional on this flight. the lead attendant was very personable when giving announcements and going through the safety procedures on the public address system. the other two attendants were also very professional in their services as well."
Cons: "flight 1920 was almost an hour late with boarding. I am extremely upset because I paid an extra $75.00 on day of to get home earlier but ended up getting home at the same time that I would have on my original flight because the flight was late and I missed my shuttle because 1920 was late boarding. I should be reimbursed SOMETHING for my inconvenience...especially after paying $75.00 extra for an earlier flight."

Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."

Pros: "The plane was sleek and clean. I had a good amount of room even in coach!"

Cons: "Roomier Seats more isle space and comfortable seating. Better head sets"

Cons: "Getting a partner airline, cancelled flight, missed intercontinental connecting flight, missing an important occasion, missing an entire day of vacation, no willingness to find more suitable outcomes."

Pros: "The Way the customer service guy, Derek, handled the situation in Denver, CO, was excellent I'd really give him a star, went above and beyond my expectations. Put me on the next flight and gave me a food voucher."
Cons: "The first flight got delayed, was supposed to work night shift, was late, had to call in sick, and not sure what my manager will do after this."

Cons: "I would have liked to arrive home before 12 noon but due to United delaying my fligh twice and not being able to make the connection in washington . I had to plead with them to put me on a direct flight to Newark which made me fly another carrier "American airlines". I'm not sure what the issue was for the delays but it was frustrated."

Cons: "The Asian style snack mix was absolutely disgusting. I was expecting a thing of pretzels or peanuts, not a ball of wasabi"

Pros: "The leg from Denver to vegas was awesome"
Cons: "The first leg didn't have any snacks and a cold continental breakfast. American and Delta's breakfast is much nicer. But worth the price for that portion of the leg."

Pros: "The agent in charlotte. Due to my delayed flight which caused all my other flights to get re-booked - she went above amd beyond to help get me on a flight with my friends"
Cons: "Almost everyrhing - first flight delayed which caused all my flights to get rebooked. Was told when I flew feom charlotte to phoenix connecting flight would be at 1:59. Landed and found out delayed for 6 hrs. Should have originally arrived in Honolulu at 5:30, disn't get there till 1:00 am their time. Ridiculous -"

Cons: "Flight massively delayed. Missed my connection. And the next flight. If they had called ahead at the gate would have made the next one, instead had to sleep in the airport overnight."

Pros: "Flight was delayed and Captain explained reason as Newark Airport Traffic Control. Further delay was experienced after taxiing and Captain kept us informed. Seats were marginally ok and flight crew was attentive. Had a soda and a small bag of pretzels. Overall, it was an ok flight."

Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent! They really communicated with the passengers regarding connecting flights and flight time delays."
Cons: "Way too small and skimpy seats, I felt like I was in a jump seat getting ready to jump out with a parachute!"

Pros: "Smaller plane, quick luggage delivery on arrival, 20 minutes early arrival time"

Pros: "The staff and crew were very helpful, especially in helping catch my connection. Which leads to the dislike."
Cons: "Nothing but delays. Before we boarded...delay. Before we left the gate...delay. Before we left the taxiway...delay. Before we landed...delay. Many on the flight missing, or having tight connections."

Cons: "I had a man sit next to me who was in the wrong seat but didn't move. He told the girl to keep his seat and he would stay next to me. He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Our flight from Charlotte to Chicago was horrible!!! It felt as if a trainee was flying our plane. Landing was so bad that I threw my feet onto the back of the seat in front of me to brace myself for landing."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "AgainThe person next to me was so obese she needed two extenqders. She was taking up her seat and most of her neighbors, she was in the middle. I was literally pinned against the aisle arm rest. It was a full flight and I wasn't able to be moved. For the entire flight I was cramped and pinned with no where to go."

Cons: "Sat in plane on runway for an hour"

Cons: "Because of plane problems I had to wait until the next day to fly home. Very inconvenient."

Pros: "all went well...no issues"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable seat I have ever ridden on a flight. My back and posterior were in pain for over a day after the flight. Terrible treatment of passengers to pack a few more people in like cattle. Thinnest seats I have ever seen that felt and looked like hard plastic. This was an Embraer 175 jet...will never fly on one of these again. Had a hard landing in excellent weather. Flew the same route back to Charlotte on an American Airlines A320...these seats were comfortable and the landing was smooth even with a 20mph crosswind."

Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."

Pros: "Delayed Flight, late flight attendant that delayed flight 1.5 hr. Causing many to miss overseas connections. Changed arrival terminal."

Pros: "on time and very polite.. good flight"

Pros: "Everything went well."
Cons: "Well to start off, this was my very first time flying on United and both flights had minor trouble. The first flight had a delay that almost caused me to miss the next flight. The second flight had a minor delay but I made it home at the scheduled time. Other than that the flight was very good."

Pros: "The seamless service from reservation to arrival at destination"
Cons: "Would have appreciated a lower fair"

Cons: "Nothing not to like!"

Cons: "I payed for my flight about a month prior and for some reason still did not have a guaranteed seat on the flight and almost got left behind"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was a delayed my flight, arrived late, delayed in the plane getting off, nothing but delays."

Pros: "Flights were on time..."

Pros: "everyone was quick, efficient, and customer oriented. seats were comfortable and the snacks were nice."

Cons: "Had an extended overlay because of an overlap booking with our pilot. He was on another plane that wasn't due to come in until two hours later."

Cons: "I flew to Charlotte, NC last week from Houston with my husband for a funeral. The flight there went smoothly and we used the United app to check in and get our boarding passes. When it came time to check in for our flight home my husband was able to get his boarding pass, but they said mine was unavailable. Obviously concerned I called United. After being on hold for over an hour I was able to speak to a representative. I was told that I hadn't show up for my flight to Charlotte... so they had canceled the returning flight. Not only was I on that flight my boarding pass was scanned twice (one at security and once during boarding). The representative then told me to go to the airport the next day and "try" to explain what happened. I don't know if this was some sort of glitch in the system, but I was very concerned and upset that someone could be on a flight with no record of them being on the plane... and that I was having to spend 2 hours trying to figure out if I could go home after a very stressful day... during a time when I should have been with my family. The next day I had to show up the the airport extra early while the representative there tried to figure out how to reactivate my ticket. Overall, an awful experience... I don't think I will be flying with United again anytime soon."

Pros: "Everything, service, timing. Great job"

Pros: "Everything was fine. I have a small suggestion , why don't you have direct flights from charlotte to tampa or Tampa to Charlotte for bit cheaper fares?"

Pros: "Crew was fantastic, went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and satisfaction with every aspect of my flight."
Cons: "My vehicle keys were removed from my checked luggage requiring to pay extensively to have a locksmith come to the airport the next day to create new keys. I slept in the parking lot due to the fact the locksmith could only open the doors and could not cut new electronic keys until morning. I am extremely enraged over this incident. I know the keys were contained in this article due to the fact that the Keychain was left on top, without keys. I could not imagine why someone would remove these keys from my Keychain that holds only those keys. I would like to hear your openion on the matter. Thanks, Alexander Kruse"

Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time"
Cons: "The seats were even smaller than the last flight. The space was very crammed and was too tight and made the flight uncomfortable."

Pros: "They Canceled My and did not refund my money Never will use United Ever Again Scum Buckets"
Cons: "Give me my money back"

Pros: "Great flight from Washington to GrandRapids! We flew into GRR on a evening where there was a winter storm advisory and had a smooth trip all the way. United had a very good pilot and crew that evening."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Service was good and everything went well once on the flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours."

Cons: "A lot of turbulence. Very shakey."
