Miss two days of my trip . Now I have to go back to AZ. Nov 14.
The plugs were not working in the flight and since they’ve taken out the screens even in first class it makes it kind of useful when you have to use your own device. I also found my cushion to be loose and sliding all over. Overall the flight was good. The crew was great. The lack of amenities and the state of the plane left more to be desired. At least Delta you can use WiFi for free a little as well as getting messaging services for free.
Pros: "Crew was amazing, seats were comfortable. Only negative is out of your control - bad weather in DFW held up departure 5-6 hours. Much of that was on the plane, but crew kept us notified. We had to return to the gate and wait another couple of hours. Awful trip, but not your fault. What I was surprised by was no comp hotel, and the discounts were not rally good discounts."
Cons: "Most of my issues were ATC problems, not AA. The AA personnel kept us informed, etc. The one thing you can control is hotels if delayed to the point of missing all connection until the next afternoon. I understand not compi9ng BUT, when google maps shows better rates at local hotels than your "discount" program, that's sad."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "I like the tablet holder in the seat back"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The customer service, both on the phone & in person"
Cons: "The entertainment app didn’t worked"
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "We sat in boarding in about 90-100 degree heat for over an hour. Everyone is drenched in sweat and should have never boarded."
Pros: "No flight. It was cancelled."
Cons: "Find a sooner alternate flight"
Cons: "If we had access to the WiFi to watch shows earlier like United does, that would be nice."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seats were very uncomfortable. I've flown Lufthansa many times and there is a big difference."
Cons: "All. Crew did not arrive on time. Boarding was a mess. Many arguments with customers."
Pros: "plane was completely full , but the seating seemed comfortable for the short flight ( 1 hour )."
Cons: "bags were a bit delayed in delivery to baggage claim."
Cons: "American has no respect for their customers. Counter agent NEVER called group nine to board, then got on the loud speaker and said, “final boarding call, doors will close 30 seconds after the end of this message.” Wha? Poor customer service..."
Cons: "Leaving MKE was organized and orderly. No problems noted. Once in PHL, flight was delayed due to no crew. After an hour or so, boarded the plane. Was on the plane for 45 minutes with no explaination from the crew. It was an electrical problem. Had to inboard and wait 45 more minutes. Allow weld to rehoard again. Waited another 20 ministrations before leaving. I am all for safety, but communications need to improve."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The tv at key seat did not work at all initially. Crew tried to re- boot it but it still didn’t work properly Flight attendant in our area was brusque and rude. And none of the others said a word to us"
Pros: "Came around a few times with drink service. Friendly crew"
Pros: "Nothing - the flight from Chicago to Philadelphia was delayed by about 2 hours. Luckily, was able to get the flight switched to a Chicago - London direct flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Philadelphia to Manchester would've been missed. So, American Airlines booked the same flight for 24 hours later. Luckily, they offered a different flight. Due to the flight changes, the prepaid ground transportation from Manchester to Leeds wasn't used. Transportation from London to Leeds had to be purchased at a much greater additional expense."
Pros: "Nice and clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "No outlet to charge devices"
Pros: "Nice airline very accommodating. Loved first class"
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "For international flight that plane was way to tight. It was like being stuffed in a can for 11 hours. I will try to not fly international with American again."
Pros: "They brought lots of water"
Cons: "Crew member threw mini pretzels on my lap when I was dozing off no protein for vegetarian lots of carbs why not to give some yogurt for protein for vegetarian it's not that we are vegan have more space for middle seat Teach crew not to throw food on somebody's lap and startle them"
Cons: "This was my first time flying First Class. Not only was my flight delayed but everything was changed last minute. My seats, layovers, EVERYTHING! I was better off paying for a regular seat. I'm a young African American and the stay treated me as if I didn't belong in First Class! Not to mention the last time I flew into LAX American Airline lost my luggage! I have proof to show! Absolutely ridiculous!"
Cons: "Good service and smooth flight"
Cons: "Overnight stay due to missed flight with no luggage or medication."
Pros: "Flt time!"
Cons: "Boarding announcer was rude"
Cons: "Nothing great"
Pros: "Companion in flight nice Korean girl... We chatted trough all flight time"
Cons: "Arrived and luggage did not arrive and had to open a claim and had to go back to pick my luggage next day, not pleasant considering I live in Juarez Mexico and had to cross the border all tired and fed up with this incident"
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"
Pros: "Staff was extremeley courtous, helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "Archiac entertainment system. The plane has not been upgraded for what seems like at least a couple of decades."
Pros: "Sat in the exit, very nice and comfortable Crew was very well dressed and polite"
Cons: "Boarding was very disorganized Flight was almost an hour late After getting on the plane, there was at least another 20 minute delay"
Cons: "No place to put my purse!"
Pros: "Very old American Airplane. Lost luggage (finally retrieved). Attendants were great."
Cons: "Monitors didn't work from our seats. small area in seating."
Pros: "Had a airline steward named Scott that was very pleasant and nice all throughout the flight."
Cons: "The plane was late/delayed going from Dallas to Colorado and the plane going from Colorado back to Dallas was late/delayed as well ."
Pros: "Early arrival."
Cons: "No real food."
Pros: "everything went smooth"
Pros: "no change in take off was a good relief. crew was great and all smiles"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Advertised snack pack wasn't the one in the brochure. I had to pay for something I didn't care for. And couldn't put my purchase on my new AA MC because I am new."
Pros: "That the pilot got us home safely."
Cons: "Honestly I am not a big fan of AA. I made a mistake booking my flight but couldn't change it because it was going to cost an arm and a leg. The staff are rude and don't try to help you. It's just a job for them to get by and it shows. Many including myself isn't big fans of AA. I wish this airline gets bought out by Southwest who understands value and elite customer service. They don't charge every little thing like American. I hope soon they can fly into Colorado Springs."
Pros: "So there was a lot of turbulence because of storms and we ended up in a holding pattern over the airport and then stuck on the tarmac when we landed. The captain and crew were very professional, offering us all the information available and explain current plans. It wasn't the best flight ever but the people handled it professionally and clearly."
Pros: "Well, there wasn't any entertainment, but that's ok. The flight attendants were nice, and the flight was on time."
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then cancel altogether. No vouchers provided for the inconveniences."
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Cons: "This flight included a lot of delays."
Everything was on time ! Less stress
Pros: "There was nothing I liked. The plane was an hour late and nearly missed my connection."
Cons: "My son was flying on United from Colorado Springs to Denver, then on to Seattle for Thanksgiving. He rushed through as quickly as he could, but the door to the place was closing and it left 10 minutes early. United recorded him as a 'No Show', and there policy now is to cancel the entire ticket is you miss any segment of a round trip ticket. Thus, his entire $900 was forfeited, he couldn't even pay a change fee to catch a later flight. I hate American, and now I hate United just as much. These airlines shills have been allowed to go out of business when they last filled for bankruptcy. We fly in quite a few international airlines, and outside of Alaska, Jet Blue and Delta, maybe Southwest, US carriers are absolutely bottom of the barrel and it's clear that their employees don't care whatsoever. Will never book again in United or American. I'll try Amtrak before either of those carriers."
Pros: "We boarded quickly. That was nice."
Cons: "The plane was old and tiny with barely any room for carry on. And no in flight entertainment or WiFi or anything. Bummer."
Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight when I needed to change it fee for everything"
Pros: "Staff always amazing."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi available."
Pros: "Colorado Springs is one of my favorite airports. It is well run and maintned, friendly and efficient"
Cons: "The seat in the exit row was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Delayed flights leading to incredibly tight connection times, staff inconsistent with messaging re the source of the delay, zero compassion for customers, offering $700-$1,400 to get off the plane when you charge $200 to change a flight 2 weeks in advance is especially galling! Will not fly with United again whenever there is a viable alternative to my destination."
Pros: "Great service! Smooth flight!"
Pros: "The planes weren’t overly packed and everyplane was on time"
Pros: "Everyone was really nice."
Cons: "Not enough free food options for active duty flyers."
Pros: "I really like how your flights are inexpensive compared to others when trying to purchase a last minute ticket."
Cons: "The last two times I traveled ( I flew with United Airlines ) and both times my flights were delayed. The first time it was delayed by 4 hours and made me miss an appointment. The second time it was delayed by over 13 hours. It was nice that United had put me in a hotel room for the night, but again it took away from time in which I needed to be somewhere else."
Pros: "Nice staff, helpful front desk and flight attendants."
Cons: "No wifi, carry on fee, small seats"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Why can’t the plane be boarded from the back to the front. Seems like that would be easier for all passengers. Also, I picked assigned seats when I purchased the tickets and my husband and I where separated in different rows."
Pros: "I typically dont fly with united, and this was a typical experience, staff was not friendly, terminal and gate change at last minute after I walking all the way to the gate, then another delay after we were boarded, now this was more airport related then United, but after they told us it was a 45min delay someone asked if we can use our phone or computer and the answer was a stern no with no explanation until someone got really upset, just not a professional experience, and this was why I don't fly united. But I had no choice this time."
Pros: "Quick Hop"
Cons: "Just a quick hop to Denver"
Pros: "I really liked the flight attendant. He was funny and kind."
Pros: "Had a flight delay in csprings but United had plane going to Denver for delivery they put us on no one missed their connection yeah!!!!"
Cons: "This was a good trip! No complaints ."
Pros: "Status quo"
Cons: "Flight was late arriving to gate hence late leaving, had a connecting flight."
Pros: "My flight out of COS was delayed by 3 and a half hours yet my connecting flight was on time. They were unable to get me another connecting flight without me being held up and landing at the wee hours of the morning. It wasn't until I demanded an upgrade from United that I was placed on an American Airlines flight. This would never have been offered if I didn't go off on the representative and demand it. American Airlines saved the day! Never again will I fly United."
Cons: "Everything.. flight never happened. Upgrade was never offered until I demanded it. The experience was so bad that I will never book with them again. They also still owe me my baggage fee back. That should be interesting."
Pros: "It was two hrs late"
Pros: "On time, flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "Multiple long delays."
Pros: "Flights were fine once we got off the ground."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 6 hours, not due to weather. Really unfortunate that I had to spend an entire day of a long weekend sitting in an airport. Wasn't reimbursed at all for any of the mess, but I guess that is life!"

Pros: "Flight on time!"
Cons: "The plane was small and bags barely fit on board"
Pros: "Boarding was fast although the flight was delayed 15 minutes. The were very quick and kind."
Cons: "The seat kept slowly reclining and I had to continually pull the seat up. I paid extra because it was Economy Plus and had extra leg room."
Pros: "Great Crew! Very professional. Great communication. Very Comfortable."
Cons: "Upgraded seat on Airbus to phone charger and there wasn't one!"
Pros: "I am fine with the airline other than a 5 hour delay. I I will never use Kayak again."
Pros: "Everyone we dealt with was unbelievably kind and helpful. They had a wheelchair at the gate and helped push my disabled brother which was such a help for my elderly parents to make their connections. When I got my parents their tickets I was very apprehensive that it might be difficult making the connections but thanks to United's wonderful service their whole experience was fantastic. In the future I will always try to book United."
Pros: "The steward was lip scyncing to the safety rules which kept our attention!"
Pros: "United made it so easy to check in & get our boarding tickets. We were traveling with a child and it was a good first time experience!"
Pros: "Went fine...short only 16 min flight"
Cons: "No food :("
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "I had to RUN through the airport to get connecting flight. I had to pay and check a carry-on because my first flight was delayed and there wasn't time to wait for my bag. If I'd have known I'd have taken a regular sized suitcase."
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized"
Pros: "Short lflight"
Pros: "Seating was nice, middle seat was empty"
Cons: "I landed at F1 and had to run to C29. No time to even grab a snack!"
