Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."

Pros: "Liked we actually made it."

They made us take stuff out of the bike case and move it to the suitcase to get it below 50 pounds. Ridiculously nitpicky. It's the same overall weight..."

Pros: "I was automatically rebooked into the next flight."
Cons: "The customer assistance rep at PHL had a terrible attitude. She was very short in her responses, and seemed annoyed at the fact I needed help, getting my new ticket indicating I had a lap infant, as it was in my reservation.

Cons: "To Stewart will not let me move forward even when it was open seats"

Cons: "Liked everything"

Pros: "Nothing, pilot was polite but also very frustrated"
Cons: "Original flight was cancelled. After 6 hour delay. Second flight arrived to Dayton and sat on Tarmac for 1.5 hours. Sweltering heat, idiots working the gate, full plane. United owes these poor folks a lot. My 80 year old mother will never fly again due to this trip"

Cons: "Major delays at Chicago O Hare, little to no communication. Passengers were not told what was going on, or the reasoning for our plane being so late. 3 hour delay boarding, and also sat on runway for another 1.5 hours before takeoff. Once landed in Dayton, could not pull up to a gate for another 45 minutes. So much wasted time. I purposely picked an early flight so I could have more time with my family. Had to cancel my family dinner plans that night due to an extra 5 hours wasted."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours, transferred carriers and still don't have my bag"

Cons: "Waiting In the airport 6hr waiting on a flight that takes and hour"

Cons: "They delayed the flight because they had no flight attendant. They delayed it every 15 minutes from 450 to 715 and then just stopped updating us at all. We all waited with no food or drink or any news. At 815 they cancelled it and sent the whole plane to customer service to wait in line. Most of us had to stay in Wash and leave the next day. They offered us nothing except to rebook the flight. The boarding crew was laughing and joking the whole time with zero regard for our discomfort or ruining connecting flights! Never again."

Pros: "We finally got to Chicago.... In one piece!"
Cons: "The delay, the plane changed so the seat assignments changed but we were not given new boarding passes, A MESS!"

Pros: "on time, clean plane, efficient crew."

Pros: "The smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"

Pros: "The crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Like any flight, the lack of choice in included snacks."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Considering I got in 5 hours late to my destination... I hated the whole experience"

Cons: "Flight delayed so booked on another flight. Get to layover and was told that United tried but couldn't book the second leg of the flight after all. Before we left our original destination, they assured us all the arrangements had been made. Lying to customers doesn't look good for businesses."

Pros: "On time departure of flight"
Cons: "Seats seem to be getting smaller. Flight attendants movement is greatly reduced. It seemed that his behind every time I looked up. Not good!"

Pros: "Price and comfortable new plane"
Cons: "Male stewardess was very unpleasant/unprofessional No food or snack or water offered to my son or I"

Pros: "The help of a guy called CID at Customer Service"
Cons: "1st flight cancelled due to maintenance; 2nd due to crew (no pilot). The feeling is that they cancelled due to few passengers. Been 9h hours in the airport with a 5 month pregnant wife was not fun (mainly for her). Totally disappointed with United. That never happened to me in life before. And I fly at least 2 X month..."

Pros: "The flight was fine nothing to rave about or complain about."
Cons: "The cargo door did jam on the return flight so we had to wait at least 30 minutes to get our bags. Not sure if someone didn't do what they were supposed to do when securing luggage. It took maintenance some time and several calls before they came to assist."

Pros: "There is absolutely nothing that I liked about this experience!"
Cons: "They had to reroute my flight four times! Then when they finally gave me a final flight I didn't get the premier seating that I paid for! Even if it's the only flight available the next time I fly I will not book with United!"

Pros: "I liked that United got me a flight on Delta. A delay on my United flight would have taken off after my connecting flight took off from Chicago to Hartford."
Cons: "I did not get a text message or a phone call that my flight had a long delay."

Pros: "United left late and then had their connecting flight leave early. Both flights were through United and on same itinerary. My teenage son was treated rudely and left to find for himself by the United counter in Dulles, even though he would have made the connection if they had adhered to the departure time. Staff refused to speak with me because, as they told my son, he was the passenger. Unbelievably poor service....and lack of care, professionalism and compassion."
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "It was a very smooth trip. No issues"

Pros: "A few delays (as to be expected from chicago )"
