Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nothing to write home about."
Cons: "Squished seats, mediocre food. Competitor deliver more for the same price or less."
Pros: "We landed Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tray table broken Entire flight too cramped. Grateful I didn’t have the last seat in the back across from the lav. can you squ3eze any more seats into that aircraft?!"
Pros: "The friendly service from everyone including desk, wheelchair service, and flight crew"
Cons: "Not much at all. Everyone took very good care of me."
Pros: "I loved the seating"
Cons: "Honestly on a 5 hour flight ✈️ power outlets would be helpful also maybe a tv so I can see where I am at"
Cons: "You were out of earphones"
Cons: "Our already delayed 1 am flight was cancelled a little before midnight. It was rescheduled to 8am. It was a big headache trying to get a hotel, meal vouchers. Then, there were no shuttles to the hotel available so has to wait in line again for taxi vouchers."
Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Pros: "Easy access and commute"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have the individual TVs on every screen given how long the flight was. At this point it seems like most international flights have them so I would have appreciated it here"
Pros: "It was quick and easy to get from point A to B with no problem with good complementary options."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."
Pros: "Food wasn’t awful."
Cons: "Late. Very. Delayed at departure, then parked on the tarmac for most of an hour, perhaps more, to get to a gate. several of the cabin attendants were very unhappy people, grumpy, snappish and harsh. Old plane, no frills. (Center screens for entertainment, no usb charging in main cabin) come-one—use this poor old guy for short haul stuff."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment and drinks service"
Cons: "Very tight for space."
Pros: "They got another flight for us"
Cons: "4 hour delayed"
Cons: "Inattentive attendant in first class."
Pros: "While the incoming flight arrived late causing us to board late, the flight still landed almost 2o minutes early. The staff was very friendly as well."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Late flight"
Cons: "Obnoxious amount of confusion at gate. Employees continuously announced and posted conflicting departure times. Was shocked by lack of assistance in finding new flights, alternative methods of transportation to destination, etc. Eventually rescheduled for red-eye flight the following day (over 24 hours later). Found alternate transportation. Don't feel like I could trust AMERICAN with my travel plans again."
Pros: "Had row to ourselves."
Cons: "Entertainment arm rest did not work, flight attendants we're not very attentive to used items left on tray s to pick up. Empy cans ad wrapper s say for 3 hours before being picked up. Middle rest room was left very dirty due to bad hygene of passengers."
Pros: "Food & inflight entertaiment decent."
Cons: "Gate agent claiming carry on bag ro large. Used it 30+ as a carryon with our difficulty. It is 14”x22”. If the concern was too many bages dont bs pasengers about reason they are asked to to check bag."
Pros: "For this flight I was seated in first class (I scheduled it this way; it wasn't due to a last minute upgrade) and the flight attendant was very personable and attentive :-) Service was wonderful and the meal was great! Of course, the flight attendant made sure to keep our beverages topped off as needed. It was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The boarding process for just about any airline is nearly identical. It always seems like it takes longer to board than expected even if, in reality, it's not an unreasonable amount of time. The only think I didn't care for was that overhead storage in the area I was sitting was just about full by the time I was seated which meant that I had to store my carry on a few rows behind where I sat. This meant that during off-boarding I needed to go against the flow of people to get back to my carry on. All in all, it was a minor inconvenience."
Pros: "Flight was safe and uneventful"
Cons: "Limited space and I had a better seat Just beverage service - not even crackers offered No entertainment options Seat recline mechanism was faulty"
Pros: "I liked that we were given cookies with our drinks that was a nice touch. I also enjoyed that it was a very quick flight from Dallas to Cincinnati. Shout out to the crew members, they work really hard to help us feel comfortable."
Cons: "The sound of the turbo engine in the beginning made my head feel really dizzy, but the buzzing went away after a while. Other than that, I think that the tiny planes should still have some sort of entertainment, even if it's just a single movie playing for all to watch."
Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
Pros: "Very smooth. Outstanding A-321 platform."
Cons: "No place to plug in my dying phone. All Group 7-9s had to check bags. This is unacceptable. Had to wait on connecting passengers (didn't know the airlines did that anymore). I am tired and have to go to work at my usual time since the flight landed late."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on luggage. There was no problems on the way up to DC, just on the way back."
Pros: "The fact that the lady at the counter was able to change our seats and put us all together."
Cons: "the movie screen being so far away"
Pros: "The flight to LA was fine, but the screen shot of the flight details didn't match what I purchased with a return date a day sooner. American Airlines blames Alaska airlines and they blame Kayak.. it's a blame game that only looks good for everyone but the consumer!"
Cons: "5hrs in LAX due to flight change without notification.. American Told us to go see Alaskan vise versa, but the conclusion was no seats were even available for the flight that was changed a day earlier.. Alaska Airlines solution: 2 additional days of travel and $700 per ticket x4 tickets. Finally after 5 hours of trying to figure it out some resolution to the mistake $500+ with additional stops. Ridiculous to say the least, I had to pay for their mistake"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Slow and confusing boarding process"
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Cons: "We took off with low fuel diverted to DFW then on to lax with no water on board Completely unsat So much for a non-stop flight"
Pros: "Extended legroom upgrade was worth it. I could actually open my laptop and got a lot of work done. Too bad the plane not have 120V plug to charge up or Wifi Arrived safely."
Cons: "- Took 2 hours to get through check in and security - ridiculous. Check in was disorganized and inefficient. People queued to use the kiosks. Firstly, there were too few kiosks, with several unused and at least one was offline. We then waited again for an extended period of time to drop of bags which should be less than 5 min. Please take lessons from Lufthansa - they really know what they are doing. This was one of the worst arrangements in the world. - One of the flight attendants, not all, seems quite bothered to serve us. I don't appreciate that. - No Wifi available - Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Pros: "We had a good flight home everything was good going was a terrible flight a lot of turbulence and attendance weren't very friendly"
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."
Pros: "Crew was very nice ."
Pros: "Everything was really good"
Cons: "-missed my connecting flight at 10pm due to weather. -waited in long line for customer service -received a phone number to book hotel -waited 30 minutes for shuttle -waited behind 8 people who checked into their rooms -when it was finally my turn they had not received my reservation and I was told to take a seat and wait, -eventually I called the booking number again, the call got dropped due to no service in the hotel lobby -I had to go outside to call after midnight! (a female alone) -finally after 45 minutes they received my reservation. -I didnt get to my room until 1am and had to get up at 5 to get the shuttle back to the airport -Frustrating and nerve racking experience"
Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I got same thing pretzel very salty"
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Pros: "I was miserable, couldn't keep myself busy because they made me check my carry on bag, I chose to ride a bus home because it was so horrible"
Cons: "I didn't like anything about it"
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "First off, I got bumped from my flight in New Bern, the only restaurant took cash only, the airline rep put me in a taxi to Greenville, NC, probably 40 minutes or so, because he could not find me a guaranteed flight out of Charlotte if I took a later flight from New Bern. I had over a 3 hour wait in Greenville. In New Bern, they did an additional security check on my shoes, these were flip flops, really? In Greenville, they did an additional check on my carryon bag and threw my toothpaste away, it was over 3 ounces, it had passed other points, no restaurants in Greenville, NC airport, only vending machines and 2 were broken. .Seating was pretty tight too! 3 hr for next flight"
Pros: "Never made it"
Cons: "Never made the flight thanks to hours of delays in chicago and in LA. I want my money back."
Pros: "Nothing.. Entire experience was horrible for my 17 year old"
Cons: "Everything.. Will never use American Airlines again"
Pros: "The flight staff was efficient boarding people and were pleasant despite the close quarters, full plane and bumpy turbulence."
Cons: "The boarding crew woman was completely and unnecessarily rude. I have a small purse I had gotten out of my backpack to get my boarding pass that she insisted I put back in my backpack before loading. I understand the concept and reason for the request but the manner in which she did it was so uncalled for. I don't recal a time in which I've been spoken to in that manner in a very long time. While I was doing it (it took literally 5 seconds), she was screaming at me to walk over to the side and lose my place in line. After I quickly put it in she screams it must go in all the way, which it was. There wasn't even a bulge from it and it closed with ease. I'd be happy to provide a picture of my small backpack/purse."
Pros: "attendants were helpful and professional, but there were very few on staff"
Cons: "delayed with no explanation, caused us to miss our connecting flight"
Cons: "Food was not good, flavor wise"
Pros: "Check in and bag check were easy and fast. Kiosk system works well. Excellent entertainment offerings!"
Cons: "I realize there is no real food service in coach, but a little variety in bagged snacks would be nice."
Pros: "The flight got me to my destination"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour, leg room was very cramped, we sat on the tarmac at O’Hare for almost an hour upon arrival"
Pros: "I was in first class and talked some w/ the pilot during our massive and enjoyed that. But not the almost 3 hr wait. The lunch, a choice of brisket or spinach ravioli - I took the pasta - was quite good. Amazing for an airline now known for service. The wine was also pretty good."
Cons: "The wait, the wait and the wait. Economy passengers - my friend Tanya was in econ - got not much during the wait. At least she had the whole row 38 D-E to herself. I sent her the cheese plate from my meal. Even though the crew kept us informed, it was too little and too late. When I asked the Captain when the missing part blew off he had no answer. Not impressive..."
Pros: "On time arrival in China. Good entertainment options for my iPad, better than seat back display"
Cons: "The usual lack of attentiveness by United Flight crew"
Pros: "Flight attendants helpful, service timely"
Cons: "Food just okay, not awful."
Pros: "Flight was on time both leaving and arriving"
Cons: "The individual, Inited WiFi entertainment accessed via the Inited app did not work. I have been on several long distance Inited flights, and it never has. Error messages include “service is not available st this time” and “unable to connect to server - wait a few minutes and refresh browser.” Since in seat video is very limited, this can make for a long flight."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative and reponsive to our needs.,"
Cons: "Flight attendant was very irritable and rude. Screaming baby on most of the flight. There was no attempt to help by flight attendants. Plane warm."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "No peanuts"
Pros: "I did like that it was pretty fast"
Cons: "Crew was rude, super unfriendly and not understanding with my toddler"
Pros: "Multiple passengers were assigned the same seats so we had to do some shuffling once everyone had boarded. There were however enough seats for everyone."
Cons: "The staff was very pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Spent 5 hours in the airport only to be cancelled at the last minute WITH NO OPTIONS to get home. They stranded us. Won't fly United EVER AGAIN."
Cons: "Between delays, terrible good, missing connection flight, the accommodation for connection flight. All pretty poor experience"
Pros: "Watching part of a baseball game at the Chicago airport and reading a book."
Cons: "I did not get to fly to Fargo. I had to drive. all flights were delayed or cancelled."
Pros: "Great UA crew on flight to SFO."
Cons: "UA plane stayed a long time on O'Hare tarmac waiting for takeoff to LA. Then parking at gate in LA took a long time. The result was I missed my UA connection to SFO. UA put me in the next LA-SFO flight."
Pros: "It was great professional and pleasant"
Cons: "The staff"
Cons: "3 delays, but United refused to cancel the flight which would allow the passengers to rebook. Pilots were dismissed and we were given vouchers to the worst motel that I have EVER stayed in. Since I had to be in Washington the next morning, I purchased a $600 ticket online after the gate agent told all of the passengers that United could not get them to D.C. until the next evening. To top it off, they used the same plane with mechanical problems the next morning, which caused further delays. Terrible and costly."
Pros: "The cabin crew themselves were great. The pilots offered my child to go see the cabin and everyone on the actual plane was great."
Cons: "The United employees at check in kiosk were very unorganized and unhelpful. I was traveling internationally with a small child and had two pieces of luggage to check in. Normally you just go to the counter once and they do everything including taking your luggage once they weigh it. Instead, I had to go to the self check in kiosk, then back to the counter to weigh my luggage, take off the one luggage from the scale, weigh the second one, then go back to the self check in kiosk, then was told to take off the second luggage as well, then finally went to a second counter where the lady handwritten my luggage tags and then was told to take both pieces of luggage and put them somewhere else altogether with specific directions on where to put them. This is something normally handled by the actual employees. Also, the check in dude yelled at my kid for putting in his name into the check in kiosk while we were waiting on the check in dude to do all those unorganized activities. He claimed it would break the software if my kid were to enter his name. I have told him that no, the software will not break if my child enters in his name."
Cons: "Air Canada flight from Ontario to SFO was operated by United. Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and we ended up missing our connection. The customer service on the phone from both Air Canada and United would not take responsibility and continued to advise to call the other company to reschedule the flight. Not only did we miss our connection but our checked bag was rerouted onto another flight with no formal notification."
Cons: "Terrible uncaring old waitresses overweight, no room for luggage no room for even walk in the plane, kept asking to turn off devices when it is well known devices don't cause any problem. No free internet. Old tired planes, terrible third world airline."
Cons: "Seats and food were disappointing ."
Pros: "We made it to Dublin..."
Cons: "Crew was terrible, grumpy and not welcoming. Boarding was terrible, 4 hours late. No compensation, little apology. Food was awful. Couldn't really tell what we were actually eating. Actually hated this flight."
Cons: "Did' agree with decision of Ua air to include unannounced stop at Rapid City to drop off crew as it was not a part of my scheduling ticket. A bit confusing at the gate w/ looking for flight to Fargo. Had to ask other passengers at gate what was going on."
Pros: "Plane not full, got to move to a row of 3. Could stretch outcandvslepp Flight attendants really helpful and friendly Bathrooms wrte clean"
Cons: "Could not see monitor so I couldn't watch the movies Food mediocre"

Pros: "Flight was wonderful!"

Pros: "Clean flight, boarding went smoothly, everything on time."
Pros: "Staff was professional. Flight was on time"
Pros: "Everything except the delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with little communication or reassurance. When I had to rebook my connection, the counter was woefully understaffed and they were not equipped with new enough computers to quickly address my problem."
Pros: "The flight crew let us know we should anticipate turbulence."
Cons: "No entertainment, no allergy friendly snacks, no help from crew with child kicking me while the mother slept"
Pros: "Everything was good except for couple of things the food n snacks Ucan offer or improve it The toilets were one I used)was out of paoer towels n rolls! Plus it was v filthy too!"
Cons: "I had to be in New Orleans at 12:00am so I could arrive home for an important interview on Monday morning.. My trip was cancelled and I had no knowledge of this until my arrival to the airport.. I had to pay an additional 75.00 to go back to Racine then another 75.00 to head back the next morning. When i arrived to New Orleans I was charged an additional 30.00 dollars for parking!"
Cons: "Due to my initial delayed flight I got to O'Hare during a drastically busy time. Due to the amount of people, noise, and dishevelment my PTSD became aggravated and I found myself having an attack. I chose the initial early flight to ensure this would not happen. I am aware of what causes my PTSD to become aggravated and I take that into consideration when I make all plans."
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly."
Cons: "Dirty plane. The air smelled bad. We were delayed, on both flights."
Pros: "Nice good and movie selection. Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "No tv in headrest."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 4 hours and when I checked in the agents at the front desk offered me a $10 meal voucher to restaurants that were already closed, so it was basically useless. I had to walk to opposite end of the airport just to find something open. My seat and surrounding area were filthy. There was hard, crunchy food on the floor, the tray was sticky and the seat 'cushion' was rock hard. Being that I have a preexisting lower-back condition, sitting in that seat was horrible. When I asked a flight attendant for a wet rag to wipe the tray off they told me I could just switch seats and showed that they didn't care. Basically, it was a disappointing end to a great trip."
Pros: "Great staff"
Cons: "I wish they posted about the United App for free entertainment."
Pros: "Airplane was clean. The attendant was warm and friendly, made eye contact and seemed concerned about everyone's comfort."
Cons: "Flight attendant was over worked. Flight was delayed. Small carry-on compartments"
Pros: "I liked the fact that United Airlines crew members at the gate and on the plane waited for all the passengers who were stuck at TSA because of the airport's issue with staffing. They were extremely accommodating and didn't seem bothered at either the gate or when I boarded."
Cons: "I understand it was a short flight but seemed like the 2 attendants were stressed with trying to have enough time for drinks. Maybe add a 3rd person. Also snacks should still be part of the flight even if it's less than a hour. We are getting a drink...why not add something like nuts"
Pros: "The flight crew were professional and well trained"
Cons: "The aircraft was very cramped and very uncomfortable even for such a short fligh"
Pros: "Organized boarding, great attentive crew.. offered water and snacks."
Cons: "Seats are hellishly uncomfortable. I couldn't sleep longer than 10 minutes at a time. No slight recline which is awful on the back. Armrests. We're locked into place. Poor pressure stabilizers. Ear drums suffered a nice amount."
Cons: "My two seats were not together and river landing very rough"
Pros: "The planning of the crew at the airport was poor. They waited until everyone got on the plane and we sat for almost 45 minutes on the plane waiting to get the plane de-iced."
