This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Cons: "Plane interior was really dirty"

Cons: "Missed the connection in CLT to BTR even though flight status on AA's website indicated that it was delayed enough so that I could make the connection. Ended up spending the night in a cold-assed airport with minimal comfort. I was already confirmed on this flight and AA knew, or should've known, that I was enroute. Not pleased at all."
Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Pros: "the plane was great"
Cons: "the flight was delayed one hour"
Cons: "This flight was operated by American, but sold by Iberia and ticketed by airfare.com. When I tried to reserve a special meal, each party (American, Iberia & airfare.com) said they could not do it, that the other party had to do it. So, in other words, no company took responsibility for my customer satisfaction. So I am ultimately blaming American Airlines accountable since they, not Iberia or airfare.com, contracted with the food service provider at the airport."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I got same thing pretzel very salty"
Pros: "The rebooking services provided by Tawanna, who was very pleasant and helpful in a stressful time."

Pros: "Like I said before nice early boarding."
Cons: "No problem"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Pros: "Denver USO facility"
Pros: "This flight wasn't terrible for being as long as it was. I slept some during it since it was at night. The good was also not bad. I got the chicken and rice combo."
Cons: "I thought the flight attendants were somewhat distracted and rude. When the flight first started I had a problem with my tv screen saying that I was blocked out. When they finally fixed it I was excited to watch a movie like everyone else around me. However, my headphone jack in the armrest did not work properly. I thought it might have been my headphones but I tried two different pairs including the pair provided by the airline. I was only able to hear scratchy background noise but no words. This meant I had to go the entire flight with no movie or music. That was highly disappointing. I told the flight attendant about it and she reset my screen thinking that might be the problem but it did not help at all."
Cons: "Boarding was the same here. Just very hectic and unorganized. Too many people getting up into line when their group was not boarding yet. Seems like there should be a better way to accomplish this."
Cons: "Roomier Seats more isle space and comfortable seating. Better head sets"
Pros: "The customer service wait is extremely long especially when u get hung up on and start all over . But one man was very helpful in changing to accommodate me next day"
Cons: "Luthsansa sent the reminder 30 prior the flight that was a delay on the flight operated by United. I called customer service they do don’t helped and hanged up twice. Finally after waiting for an hour on the airport the same flight was change 4 times more. A manager in United got us in a different flight but we arrived 40 minutes later to Madrid and missed our connection to our other flight. I had to buy a one way expensive tickets because my connection was loss due to the issues with the FL rigth from Charlotte"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Having some luggage crew at Dulles. We waited a long time on the tarmac to get our carryon bags. We had a short time to catch a connecting international flight. We had to run the length of D & C terminals to get to our connecting flight."
Pros: "Fantastic service and very poloce staff."
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: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "Staff, modern plane"
Cons: "Seats where slightly small"
Pros: "The crew was very nice...the entertainment choices are very good...I appreciate the Mileage Plus Card perk of Preferred Boarding in Group 2...smaller plane with 2 seats allowed good leg room and my wife and I to sit together alone."
Cons: "You also ask us to rate food, but they do not provide food...what do we rate...the soda choices, the teeny bags of snack mix???"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 1.5 hrs due to lack of communication, leading me to miss my connecting flight by minutes"
Cons: "We had to wait over two hoirs for them to het us a plane. They allowed United Staff members to dead head to Scranton amd bumped paying costomers. They flight attended stopped her speech to make a mother keep her infant quiet. The The agent at the gate continued to give false information on the delays."
Pros: "priority boarding; seat;"
Cons: "snacks selection was limited"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, flight arrived early after leaving late, more leg room than expected"
Cons: "Seats were very, very thin."
Pros: "Overall flight was Okay. United has been my favorite airline since 1971. "Fly The Friendly Skies of United""
Cons: "Very tight seating My wife said it seamed as though the lavitory hadn't been cleaned in a month. I didn't use it though."
Pros: "Everything went smooth."
Cons: "We get informed at boarding time the flight is delayed by over an hour due to "awaiting aircraft arrival". How do you not know until boarding time there isn't an available aircraft? That's just poor operations. Then our flight continues to get delayed several times. Which is the most annoying... Don't tell me the flight is delayed an hour, the 55 min later tell me it's delayed another hour - repeat, repeat, repeat. After two and a half hours, I said f-it, and just left. I could've driven to my destination faster."
Pros: "While waiting for the flight the agent kept us informed of the status by use of a speaker - said plane just landed and once passengers get off they will get us on board - he also took control and told people that wanted to be first in line to get on board to step aside and clear the way for passengers to get off the plane - pilot let us know we would land around 25 minutes early in Chicago so we were informed - then he explained why we had to sit and wait for a gate at O'hara"
Cons: "I didn't like that I couldn't take my rolling luggage with me cause it was a small plane and there wasn't the overhead room - then I had to wait afterwards around 15 minutes to get my luggage but the price for the flight was low and they were organized in how it was handled -"
Pros: "The flight was snooze and the flight staff were friendly!"
Cons: "We received a notification 2 hours before our Friday flight that it was cancelled, rescheduled for 24 hours later with no help in finding alternate options. All United employees were rude and non helpful. We were forced to switch airlines to Delta, and I will never fly United again. Very disappointing, we got into Chicago Friday night at 12PM CST, 1AM"
Pros: "The flight itself was very convenient and quick."
Cons: "We were delayed and sitting on the plane for almost 4 hours and were left with few explanations. The crew was not friendly."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Twin prop was a bit bumpy would have preferred jet service. I will make sure to inquire the next time"
Cons: "I got to the airport 40 minutes early. The flight was out at 6:20, I was there by 5:40. They did not let me print out a boarding pass. I could see the gate from the security line and the security line was EMPTY. There was no reason for them not to let me get on the plane, but they ended up scheduling me for a flight to Denver with the connecting flight in the morning- delaying my trip 24 hrs and charging me an extra 125$!!! I ended up paying an extra 85$ to American and was able to get to PHX that afternoon! The ladies at United were straight up RUDE too. When I told the lady at the counter my name she rolled her eyes."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "There was a delayed my flight, arrived late, delayed in the plane getting off, nothing but delays."
Pros: "Wine was good and generous pours were nice."
Cons: "Turkey was terrible never offer it again. Bread was stale. Get better coffee"

Pros: "The snack"
Cons: "For the price I paid, it was a terrible seat, no room with 2 people sitting on either side."
Pros: "She was very understanding to my 37 minute layover in Denver and upgraded me to seat row 11 from seat row 31 to make sure I could get off the plane quicker. Very much appreciated and why I always fly United with my MilagePlus card. I had been on vacation for a week and had to be at work the next day."
Pros: "Nothing special, just a short flight."
Cons: "Old plain with very uncomfortable seats, even for a cheap 30min flight they could do something to keep the seats from hurting.Terrible flight boarding process at Newark! They had everyone get on buses and we're shuttled over to their airplane. To make matters worse they boarded like 3 flights at a time at the same gate. Clearly they have had issues with people getting on the wrong plane with this process, because they asked us about 4 times if everyone here was going to this destination."
Pros: "The steward on this flight was very attentive. He anticipated my needs and those of the other passangers."
Cons: "This was a turbo jet and was very noisy. My seat was in the front and there was very little leg room. Fortunately, I am a short and and short legged."
Pros: "Flights were on time..."
Pros: "everyone was quick, efficient, and customer oriented. seats were comfortable and the snacks were nice."
Pros: "No problem except that shuttle is awful"
Pros: "Fast boarding, I time flight"

Cons: "Complimentary wifi was on the fritz"
Pros: "Very friendly and comfortable"
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: "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."
Pros: "they lost my luggage"
Pros: "Crew was responsive"
Cons: "I didn't like the extra 2 hour lay over in Ethiopia."
Pros: "The first leg of our trip started late and we were parked on the tarmac waiting for a departure gate. Once we were allowed to depart we had the desk at that gate radio ahead. After sprinting to the connecting flight they stated they had already stopped boarding even though we were five minutes earlier then departure time. We had to take another flight in the morning ended up costing a days worth of time and a lot of extra expense."
Pros: "Able to book me on a nonstop with American Airlines...which was NOT ridiculously understaffed. Flying Americsn next time! And the lost baggage claim guys for American in Cleveland are the best!!!!!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so I would've missed my connecting flight. They didn't switch my bag so it was lost. United never gave out luggage ID stickers in Charlotte....seriously."
Pros: "Although it was a new airliner to United, it had noticeable more legroom than the Airbus aircraft that other airlines use. Luggage room for your carryon was ok, though not near as convenient as the Boeing's."
