Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."
Cons: "Leg room and seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. It would be nice to be informed that although beverage service is suspended, you can still request drinks that are available. I had to find this on the website and didn't get anything by a tiny water bottle for both of my 3+ hour flights."
Cons: "I understand main cabin isn't supposed to be as upscale as 1st class, but it would do well if the seats were a bit more comfortable and the headrest was softer, it feels like a lump or sack of potatoes. Very stiff and hard. Also, having enough arm room would be nice so you're not fighting the person next to you for space on the armrest."
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "leaving on time. more than 4 hours delayed. we had to deplane the aircraft and all the time there was not a certain answer."
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Cons: "Had to sit next to someone that was so big she had to put up the arm seat and sit on half my seat. Thank god I’m 110 but sitting next to the window made me very claustrophobic."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Pros: "The wine"
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Cons: "1 hour delay boarding then another hour waiting for a Pilot!?"
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Pros: "Plane was on time, good service, main cabin extra is nice with my knees"
Cons: "No problems"
Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"
Pros: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"
Cons: "There was no individual entertainment on board (TV’s, internet, etc)"
Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats are definitely cramped."
Pros: "Getting home safely"
Cons: "Finding damage to my luggage"
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Cons: "Imagine, thanking up until the last minute that you were taking one airline only to be taking another. Imagine no one alerted you to the fact that you were not taking Finn air, as all of your travel documents indicated, but American Airlines that had set up operations with Finn air as a front to cover their poor allegiance and performance as of late. Classic bait and switch at the tune of several thousand dollars. This is worthy of congressional over site."
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The plane was freezing, then it was boiling hot. There was no happy medium. Never had this issue on a plane. The crew would not shut up. They talked endlessly on the speakers, which were blown out and had some sort of buzzing feedback which made listening unbearable. I hated every minute of this flight and was so glad to be off the plane."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1hr and 20 minutes since tower mix up and plane was bigger so confusion on seating. I feel stressed cause I will be missing a full day of work because of this delay and pretty pissed off. Would like some sort of compensation"
Cons: "Same as previous response."
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "nothing. horrible flight."
Cons: "Aweful experience. I waited for hours in the airport because there was no plane available. thank you for wasting my time. No food served on my first class flight. All airport restaurants closed down so no food available and yet American airlines left me stranded and hungry."
Cons: "Still haven’t left after two maintenance issues on two different planes, one of which aborted takeoff."
Pros: "Crew was ok they seemed disconnected from the passengers"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Serve drinks faster we didn't get a drink until we was 20 min into flight. I pay for first class expect a drink before we take off."
Cons: "Not sticking me next to a 400 pound man"
Pros: "Everything was smooth"
Cons: "More leg room!"
Cons: "Crew was late. Delayed the flight by 45 minutes."

Cons: "Flight was 2 hrs late"
Pros: "No middle seat."
Cons: "Late boarding, late take off, late arrival."
Cons: "Couldn’t understand what the crew was saying. Had to wait 29 minutes on plane after landing for a gate. The entertainment was annoying and the screen would not shut off. I did not purchase direct tv because I do not was to buy a product to watch advertisements. If you offer it then there should be an option to TURN OFF THE SCREEN it is super annoying"
Pros: "Power ports at the seats basically worked, thank goodness. If you pay for Economy Plus, there's a basic, humane amount of leg room."
Cons: "The bathrooms have been narrowed so that an average male can't turn around without contortions. The conditions, overall, are subhuman."
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "Snug srating"
Pros: "fast take off and good service."
Cons: "At the last minute outside my control I could not fly. I tried to get a refund or a voucher and I could not. Well I could but the cost of changing or exchanging the ticket was more than the face value of the ticket."
Pros: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."
Pros: "I loved how comfortable the plane was. The snacks were tasty! My husband and I actually looked in the grocery store for them when we returned home :)"
Pros: "staff friendly"
Cons: "Could not check in on app due to basic economy . Made me what until last to board . I had no seat assigned until last second"
Cons: "For a long flight, it's inexcusable to have no wifi working for both my flights. I'm very dissapointed as this was very uncomfortable to fly internationally. While they did play a movie on the communal screen, was hard to see from my seat. Would of much rather paid more to fly with a nicer service"
Cons: "Not a fan of the snack"
Pros: "Mints at the end of the flight! Leg room adequate! Professional attendants."
Cons: "During Boarding process we blocked the entire concourse making it awkward for non passengers of the flight walking to and fro who had to squeeze between us. Has to be a better way. Otherwise very smooth."
Pros: "The flight was on time and without any issues."
Cons: "Comfort: seating area very small. Food: The flight was over 6 hours and the only food available had to be purchased. Food should be included in the price of tickets for such a long flight. Entertainment : extra charge for entertainment. Come on!"
Pros: "Non stop. Directtv"
Pros: "Movies on personal device"
Cons: "Great flight crew"
Pros: "I enjoyed the speedy boarding process"
Cons: "The flight was over booked. Very crowded and when we arrived in Los Angeles we sat on the runway for over an hour"
Pros: "The service & how comfortable I was."
Cons: "That you have to pay for everything but I guess now a days every airline is doing the same thing."
Cons: "I was forced to rent a van with other people booked on a 9:40 PM flight from Newark to Hartford because one and 1/2 hours after the flight should have left we didn't know if it would leave in 1 and 1/2 hours or be cancelled United was trying new software or something that Sunday night and hundreds of flights were affected."
Pros: "First a long wait for plane repairs in Chicago. Then the plane couldn't be repaired so we had to wheel our heavy bags to a new gate and wait, again. Finally a new plane arrived and we finally got on. Nothing free but pretzels and water, etc. No compensation. No movies so I had nothing to do, since I planned to watch a movie. Didn't bring my book."
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Pros: "TSA was very rude in Cleveland."
Pros: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."
Cons: "Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing."
Cons: "Total flight was cancelled got trapped in Denver next flight was going to be out 3 days later. Customer care locations were closed. Still lost baggage. Had to rent a car in Denver and drive 2 Durango on icy roads. Totally terrible Airline and a terrible experience."
Pros: "Was shocked they still offered drinks on such a short and small flight."
Cons: "late> 6 hours, with an entire cast of characters that could not possibly care any less than they do."
Pros: "Crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Small seats and not much leg room."
Pros: "The Inited Club"
Cons: "Flight never took off due to engine problems, That is understandable. What was not fun was the "every man for himself" trying to get to an agent to get alternate flights out. If you were sitting at the back the of the plane you obviously we're at the back of a long line and had no good options by the time you got to someone"
Pros: "The services very nice"
Cons: "It's very good service"
Pros: "The airport"
Cons: "Crew allowed other passengers to put more luggage in than me. I had to go hunt for space. United cheated me."
Cons: "The flight from Newark was delayed and caused me to miss my flight from SFO to TPE. The gate staff on arrival did nothing to help ensure that I would make the flight. I chose United because i expected reliable service, instead I got the worst ever experience with an airline."
Cons: "Flight delayed, missed connection. United made no effort to help find a new flight. They stranded my at an airport for 12 and never even apologized."
Pros: "Crew was patient, plenty of room to move thru cabin! Went fast & was over before we knew it!"
Pros: "The crew worked furiously to get everyone her drink & snack. Boarding sequence was orderly."
Cons: "Most of the time, the weak link is in check-in. For CLE-ORD, too many huge personal bags & carry-ons slipped thru the process resulting in takeoff delay as the staff checked for overhead cabin space back & forth. Inside the jet, the crew had to look for cabin space, rearrange ridiculously large bags...in order to fit my backpack. More delay. Some "personal" items were larger than most carryons."
Pros: "The seats were roomy enough. The plane was clean."
Cons: "The flight within itself was not a problem. However there was a hold up because on weather which is not a problem better safe than sorry. But trying to make our connecting flight was the problem we asked over and over for information on if we were to make our connecting flight and no one seem to be able to give us a relatively fair answer on what we were to do because of the delays. Needless to say we missed our connecting flight in New Jersey they shut the door and said we could not board, that's OK if that was the rules but what to do next was the problem, no one could seemingly help us.We had to walk around to find someone to help us to only be told that we can just get the next flight but we had to go to customer service to get re-ticketed which was making us missed even another flight the lines in customer service were extremely long and they were going extremely slow so I had to jump out of line and go to a gate in which someone help me get re-ticketed to catch the next flight. We were to have someone to meet us in London in which we had no way to connect with them to tell them we were going to be 2 to 3 hours late. Once we got on a flight the plane was clean, the seats were spacious enough for economy and the staff was friendly but coming through New Jersey was not what I would want to do again but I had a flight back coming through. The horror!"
Pros: "Everyone was kind and on time"
Pros: "It was on time from Cle to Houston. The problem was from Houston to SF"
Cons: "Houston to SF was delayed about 3 hours."
Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats were too cramped..knees hit seat in front and I felt like I couldn't use the arm rest cause my hand would be on the knee of the person next to me"
Pros: "That it was direct form Cleveland to LA and it left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "Wifi did not work. Chairs are so tight and hardly move back enough. Why can't they have some form of lumbar support?"
Pros: "The crew spoke Mandarin and were very friendly. The food has definitely improved since the last time I flew this segment. I think UA is feeling the competition from the Asian airlines and improving their services to better compete. The seats are definitely more comfortable than the domestic flights. It was a comfortable flight and we landed right on time."
Cons: "The seats are still smaller than some of the Asian competition."
