Very little food option

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

Same day first class upgrade was amazing. We would do this every single time! More 777 planes please!

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Why no service in first class?"
Pros: "Liked we actually made it."
Cons: "Another delayed American Airlines flight where the temperature in the cabin was as the overall apathy of the employees."
Pros: "You sold my seat , now I am sleeping in the airport it is no nice"
Cons: "Yes if you keep my seat"
Cons: "We landed early and had to wait 45 min on the runway."
Cons: "I am glad to be home after 4 1/2 hours of delays"
Pros: "Crew professional and competent"
Pros: "Clear communication on flight boarding"
Cons: "Attendant could have been more friendly."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Cons: "Due to missed connection, computer booked me on later flight, but in the wrong class (i.e., not first class as ticketed). Very helpful agent at O'Hare was able to remedy this though (didn't get her name. 6/25/19 at help desk near O'Hare gate L4, 7PM)"
Cons: "Todo bien gente tranquila"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was about 1000 years old and I don’t think I’ve sat in a more uncomfortable seat."
Pros: "Courteous crew and staff"
Cons: "Check bags online for all flights"
Pros: "We didn’t crash."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "very very old plane"
Pros: "Super-friendly crew, really under-booked flight so LOTS of empty seats"
Cons: "“Free” WiFi was really $10, unless you have TMobile"
Cons: "Very confused as to why I am receiving messages regarding confirming flight and post flight review when I did not purchase this flight. I watched it, did NOT book it. I should not be charged for it."
Pros: "Flight from Narita to Kaoshiung was great, as usual, with JAL"
Cons: "Slept overnight in LA terminal, Bag sent to San Diego. Flight on American Airlines to Narita was cramped. Short stay in Narita, on to Kaoshiung via JAL, got to Kaoshiung and bag was/is still in San Diego. Hopefully, I'll never have to fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."
Pros: "Departure was on time"
Cons: "Really hard seats, no phone charger outlets, on board WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "Flight was delayed so much that I would miss my connection so I never went and am on a new flight today on a different airline"
Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."
Pros: "We took off and arrived on time. That was the only thing they did right."
Cons: "The service was terrible. The stewardess was clearly doing exactly what she needed to in order to not get fired."
Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."
Cons: "Wasn't a dislike, but would have liked to board a little earlier with kids of age 5, 7, and 9. However, all was fine and staff were pleasant."
Cons: "Going to aircraft by bus in the cold with long wait for bus departure"
Pros: "Flight attendant, David, was extremely professional and nice."
Pros: "Service was fine and the crew members were professional. Everything you would expect in a standard flight"
Cons: "Price tag to travel within the country was more expensive than transatlantic flights despite leaving from a major hub. Wouldn’t allow carry lbs either. If you’re going to fly basic economy, might as well just do spirit and save several hundred dollars."
Cons: "They put a bunch of crying babies next to me, other than that it was a good experience."
Pros: "Ice cream as a snack was a nice surprise."
Cons: "This was a nine hour flight and the entertainment system was very old. There were screens in the middle of the plane with the movies chosen for you. On a flight this long, the customer should have options. You also were not able to control your the air. So the flight was freezing! The lunch options were meatballs or cheesy pasta. I thought these were risky. What has happened to chicken?"
Pros: "It's not the person at the gate's fault. She tried to be very informative and kind."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 630am. It's currently 945am and I'm still in the airport. Now a new maintenance issue was found. Flying is a first world luxury with first world problems."
Pros: "Smooth flight, barely late."
Cons: "Broken sink, horribly uncomfortable, cramped seats."
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing special, nothing wrong. On time."
Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "Walking out in rain to board the plane"
Pros: "Pretty efficient."
Pros: "Good crew, everything efficient with no problems for getting from point A to point B."
Cons: "I really am starting to hate the CRJ-700. I dislike being packed into one with 50 of my closest friends I never knew."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."
Cons: "I was trying to check two bags, and I get three free bags. My one bag was my wife's bike in a case and it as 60 pounds and the other was a suitcase that was only 20. 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: "Safely took off, flew, landed. They gave a biscoff instead of bland pretzels"
Cons: "Couldn't understand pilot."
Pros: "Due to my missed connection, American booked me on the earliest flight to Dayton the next morning via United."
Cons: "The United flight's aircraft was cannibalized for another flight as our plane was only slightly more than 1/2 full. Our later aircraft were cannibalized twice more, until we finally got a spare aircraft after a two hour delay."
Pros: "* on time * courteous staff"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and efficient. Schedules met my needs."
Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"

Pros: "Nothing - never happened."
Cons: "The flight was changed many times."
Pros: "that connecting flight was close to arrival gate"

Pros: "The flight was not only on time, but a little early!! The flight crew were fantastic & the plane looked new. Everything went according to plan which rarely happens these days!!!"
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. Ultimately, I had to report I had an infant with me at the flight gate, even though this was my second flight with AA that day."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "I liked American better than the other airlines used during my trip. Those were United n Southwest"
Cons: "We waited nearly TWO hours in line to check in our unaccompanied minors."
Cons: "The gate attendant was a little snarky; shirt with an older passenger. The snacks were just okay; almonds would be good, or kind bars."
Pros: "Comfortable seating, good service, wide variety of entertainment options."
Cons: "I’m vegetarian and the food was horrendous and extremely limited."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late getting to Cincinnati due to weather in Houston. We did make up some time in the air, however, when we got to Newark, we waited over 20 minutes to be towed to the gate! This level of service is simply unacceptable."
Pros: "The crews did a great job!"
Cons: "Departures on both legs of the flight was delayed. First one 45 minutes and second one 20 minutes. The seat on the first flight was not the best and doesn’t seem to have a tall enough back section for taller people to rest their head."
Cons: "Delayed multiple times"
Pros: "Alyessa went over & above to make us feel welcome & appreciated"
Cons: "Limited snacks"
Pros: "staff was fine"

Pros: "Nothing. It was extremely stressful dealing with the cancellation."
Pros: "Really nice flight"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Filthy was not full so for a tall guy I was offered good seats for the plane size"
Pros: "Politeness of the crew, not cramped"
Pros: "crew was patient and efficient"
Cons: "3+ hour delay leaving CVG due to delayed plane out of ORD"
Cons: "No seat assigned"
Pros: "The crew were. Friendly, polite and tried to do there best in accommodating the customer. Hats off to the crew."
Cons: "The seats, hard as rocks, limited comfort, leg room, width everything, entertainment was down more then running, basically the cabin was dirty and as uncomfortable as I've ever seen or been in. I was more confortable sitting on bleachers with no padding than in one of this flights seats."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Layover in Newark was too long and Newark is not a good airport for layover"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi didn't work when I tried it on my computer."
Cons: "There's not enough room. The guy beside me is hanging over his seat and I'm trying to sleep and our bodies are touching because he's so big."
Cons: "This flight seems to be frequently delayed waiting on the inbound aircraft from SFO to CVG"
Cons: "Each direction I got delayed"
Pros: "The crew from gate to landing was very helpful and met all my required needs. I didn't have to worry if my questions would be answered or if there was space for my luggage as they attended to all the things I could have wondered about."
Cons: "Newer planes are more compact than I would like, and the aisles are very narrow. When the carts move up and down the aisles, they have a tendency to bump people even if the flight attendants are being extremely careful."
Pros: "All was good. Crew was nice to everyone."
Cons: "Two large people had carry on bags that did fit in the overhead. They kept trying different areas and delaying boarding for other passagers."
Pros: "Your crew was sympathetic to the dry air and happily provided extra water when I asked"
Cons: "Fellow next to me was having a hard time with the credit card use for direct tv."
Pros: "Seat assignment"
Cons: "I'm not a pilot but I've flown enough to know what turbulence is. I was one of the first to board and asked the flight attendant if there was food for purchase or any type of snack as my blood sugar was so low. I was also in pain and needed to take my medication. It was a 40+ minute flight however when one is handicapped you are at the mercy of the person taking you to the gate it's not like you can stop and look for a place to eat. It wasn't until we were almost at the destination we received a plastic cup and offered a sip of water. I sat right in front of the flight attendant and she could see my discomfort yet didn't offer a bag of peanuts or a drink"
Pros: "On time, crew was friendly"
Pros: "Plane took off and landed in one piece on time - funny how we all accept that is all that matters"
Cons: "I am a connection in Chicago from A to C concourse- too far. I came to fly not walk. Then we loaded from the front to the back - crazy. Service was slow cos too few crew. Airlines completely "dis" their customers"
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "You cancelled my flight when I was in chicago to cincinnati United did not offer me anything no hotel, money back nothing and I had to be somewhere very important I didn't have my thing because it was in my suitcase which i didn't get till sunday. Ended up renting a car and driving the rest of the way. Never offer anything to help me. Then United messed up my plane ticket on my way back home almost miss my flight."
Pros: "The gate attendant was fantastic , very professional and kept us informed through two gate changes"
Cons: "I prefer having the entertainment system provided I was unable to access the wifi"
Pros: "Some of the people I dealt with were nice. All of the flight attendants and pilots were nice."
Cons: "United only had one person working to check people in, and due to a lady with 8+ bags that the only agent had to take 20+ minutes with (while the line stacked up behind us), we ended up missing the first leg of our flight. Told us our bags would be checked all the way through, and they weren't. Checked bag got lost on the way back (again, due to misinformation from United on whether our bag would be checked all the way through), and when we got them back they had obviously been rooted through, with no note left by TSA. I fly often, and this was one of the worst flying experiences of my life."
Cons: "still haven't left."
Pros: "Quick boarding & on time. 70mph tail winds pushing us from Chicago to Dayton in 40 minutes! What's not to like. A 10:20 am flight 60% full."
Pros: "My flights were on time and I didn't die."
Cons: "United Airlines doesn't have power outlets in their economy seats."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was so cold that ice was falling on passengers throughout the flight from the vents. I chose coffee for my in-flight beverage to warm up, but the flight attendants did not have lids available to offer. As you can imagine, that didn't end well on a turbulent flight."
Pros: "Nice aircraft"
Cons: "Late out of ORD"
Pros: "Great flight today from Chicago to Dayton good to be home. Very fast and efficient."
Cons: "To Stewart will not let me move forward even when it was open seats"
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork, the announcements, the boarding, the take off, the landing and the on time arrival. This trip was an example of how things should go."
Cons: "70min connection and luggage took 40 min so had to rebook. Destination 100min late so not awful after 32hr flight but difficult at the end of all that."
Pros: "Comfortable and on time other than rain delays"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight and had difficulty getting help to reschedule b missed flight due to retouting to Austin"
Pros: "Great friendly crew, you can tell they love their jobs"
Cons: "Liked everything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 1/2 hours, transferred carriers and still don't have my bag"
Cons: "The flight was delayed so that I would miss my connecting flight so they change me to a different flight which was been cancelled and I had to get a different flight to Detroit where I landed as far from my departing gate as you could possibly make it with 20 minutes to get there"
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!"
Cons: "The snack food was the worst I've ever had on any flight. It was some kind of Asian-style snack and I almost gagged. Never had a snack on a plane I couldn't eat until now."
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: "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."
