Flight was delayed nearly five hours. Would have missed my connection despite having a 2.5hr layover originally. Austin to Philadelphia just is not a route that has many back up options if there is a problem. I will avoid Austin at all costs going forward. Please be aware if you have connections in Austin that they don’t fly to all locations on every day. So if you miss one……you might be stuck in Austin for a day or two. STAY AWAY FROM AUSTIN.
Cons: "When I got to dallas there was no one there with a wheel chair to help me get to my next flight. Asked the counter person for information and she almost could not be bothered. After asking twice I notice a golf cart type of transportation for the handicap. Well it took me 1 1\2 to get to my connecting flight. 2 other people had missed there flight. I was disappointed in American Airlines that they could not be bothered to help or even answer a couple questions."
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "It was hot on the plane and the gate situation was a disaster. So chaotic and stressful. So crowded. Asking people to take later flights. Sucked."
Pros: "It was a quick and comfortable flight, no complaints."
Cons: "For the longer leg of my trip, there was no entertainment. No screens at all! No food besides some dry pretzels on a 5 hour flight and the crew was borderline surly. They were running into people with the drink cart, bumping any edge of arm or leg that was in the aisle, not smiling, not pleasant at all."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was wonderful, she worked so hard the whole flight and was so pleasant. I am sorry I don’t know her name, but she’s beautiful!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Great flight"
Pros: "I liked the location of my seat in first class because I was the first one off the plane after we landed"
Cons: "The crew, specifically the woman who was assigned to take care of first class customers"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 Minutes at the end of the flight."
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: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Not as friendly as I hoped"
Cons: "Crew service; food and general customer service"
Cons: "Not being delayed for 6 hours would’ve been better."
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."
Pros: "Crew helped us find new seats on board."
Cons: "American Airlines changed our seats after ticket purchase so that we were not sitting together. We chose seats at check-in in San Francisco so that we could sit together. When we landed in Miami we discovered our seats had been changed yet again and we were seated in different rows, middle seat!"
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"
Cons: "Flight delayed 24 hrs"
Cons: "One of the seats in fseat"
Pros: "Easy access and commute"
Cons: "4 delays.. weather suc’s when trying to fly"
Pros: "Helpful staff and located us at the front of the plane. Easy checkin and friendly attendants."
Cons: "The in flight sandwich was so so but overall good, Turkey sandwich and pepper mayonnaise, for airline food. They included kettle chips and a brownie which was a nice touch."
Cons: "No entertainment or WiFi at all"
Cons: "5 hour delay missed my connecting flight because of this neither airline offers a refund or anything since I booked them separately.... Now I have to spend more $$ and time thanks"
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"
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."
Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."
Cons: "The space between seats is very short!!"
Pros: "Good time for flight"
Cons: "Tight, hot inside plane, no refreshments"
Pros: "Newer seating configuration on A321. Decent leg room."
Cons: "Crew claimed turbulence prevented in-flight service. Also couldn’t use GoGo WiFi from either of my iPhones. Disappointing, unremarkable flight."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence"
Cons: "American continues to surprise through their lack of consideration and cheapness Prefer to have seat empty on the front rather than move passengers that are loyal frequent flyers. The most important point for American is you have to pay for everything including for flight status. No longer miles flew but how much you pay them"
Pros: "Clean and on time flight!"
Cons: "The Food"
Pros: "Another typical domestic flight. Nothing special. Pretzels were the only snack."
Cons: "No entertainment and nowhere to charge electronics."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Pros: "Crew are saving a bad experience"
Cons: "Space are laughable Food is bad If I have a choice, I'll not take an american airlines for any international travel"
Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"

Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."
Pros: "Very smooth"
Cons: "I didn't not like anything."
Pros: "Again just a small jumper, can't expect much, but a day late due to AA"
Cons: "Back home just 5 days out and back, just 2 days of flights, 3 flights late or missed because of AA. fly anything but American Airlines."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and the service was great. Clean plane wonderful crew. We left our gate 10 early, and landed 30 minutes before our estimated time."
Cons: "It was not AA fault, but since we arrived so early we waited more than an hour for a new gate. Ours was occupied by a cancelled flight because something was wrong with the plane and couldn't move it."
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Pros: "It was nice and cool."
Cons: "It was delayed."
The first plane could have had working avionics.
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1hr 20min. Had to wait inside the plane because they forgot to put fuel into it on time. Flight attendant was very rude, full of anger, almost threatening"
Pros: "The reps at customer service were very nice and helpful. Kudos to them"
Cons: "I missed my flight to Grand Junction the night before because my plane from Dulles was delayed. So, consequently I had to spend the night in Denver. I was not pleased with that at all."

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: "Ease of boarding and good communication from pilot"
Cons: "Flight attendant was gruff when communicating. She seemed angry when providing information. It was a short flight, so not a lot was offered, which was totally fine. However, when she walked down the isle with water, she appeared to be looking at the ceiling and didn’t stop to check if many people wanted water, including me."
Pros: "Flight Attendent, crew and aircraft"
Cons: "Had to wait 35 minutes for luggage at Bradley. Poor"
Pros: "On time, flight attends are superb"
Cons: "Cramped seats due to greedy corporation trying to appease the share holders"
Cons: "movies: screen froze every few minutes throughout the flight in biz class: nor more brandy/cognac; menu rather limited"
Cons: "VeRy long flight that didn’t need to be as long. Small plane. Hard landing and very quick stop where where everyone screamed."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could with the situation"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for an hour so that the plane after having to change planes needed to be filled with gas. It was a long wait in a very small space. Never uncomfortable. We also waited on the plane with any notice of how long we would be sitting."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "No peanuts"
Pros: "Arriving in Dublin"
Cons: "Seat was cramped and uncomfortable"
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."
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."
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."
Pros: "Like the free snacks while we waited 2 hours to board."
Cons: "Did not like waiting 2 hours to board."
Pros: "The flight was very nice the Captain did an awesome job flying and the flight was awesome seeing the fireworks from the sky."
Cons: "I had to run to customs to pass by then I had to run to luggage check in run to the shuttle to catch to terminal hurry through security and then my luggage is still not found or waiting to land in Dallas from Chicago."
Pros: "I really can't complain about the flight. Great service and on time"
Cons: "The only unfortunate thing was there were no TVs which was a bummer"
Cons: "Seats and food were disappointing ."
Cons: "Being in the plane for 3 hours with no AC"
Cons: "Why charge people for entertainment and snacks put it in the cost of flight , many people onboard complained about this it's 2017 how united could compete with virgin JetBlue southwest baffles me. I surely will not fly united ever again"
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Leg room in economy was bad for a international flight"
Cons: "I was told that a transport would be available upon landing, it was only there for first class patrons. We landed 20 minutes late due to maintenance issues and I missed my flight by five minutes. I feel that united could have expedited my departure from the plane."
Pros: "Everything was on time!!! I flew in the new airplane with the adjustable seats coach and I was comfortable!!! This is a huge difference from a couple of years ago when I totally refused to fly this airline due to the the small uncomfortable seats when I was flying from NY to LA. The service was amazing - every person from the kiosk help to the suitcase attendant who found my forgotten duty-free purchase after arrival. I had the best experience flying United - they really stepped up their game!!! No complaints!!!"
Cons: "I think a whole can of soda is the least that should be provided for any flight."
Cons: "People took my seat, family in front of me had tv blaring the entire time and flight attendants did nothing, child next to me threw up on me since there were NO bags in the seats. Took 45 minutes to get luggage. Never again!! And no free wifi?? $7.99 is ridiculous when most other airlines give it for free."
Cons: "All of it. EVERY SINGLE BIT..."
Cons: "It is 6:50 PM. We are at the airport in Merida, Mexico. We were scheduled to leave at 8:22 AM this morning. The flight was delayed twice, due to maintenance. We are now scheduled to leave at 9:00 PM. The plane is coming in from Houston. An airline as large as United could have sent another plane here instead of having us wait 13 hours. We have a 4 hour drive to get home after arriving Houston."
Cons: "i had to pay $25.00 for my one bag on my flight home but didn't have to pay from indy to washington"
Pros: "The professionalism of the airline stewardess says that's what I like the most"
Cons: "I really can't say that I truly would call something I didn't like"
Cons: "A 4 hour flight & we got a repulsive wafer cookie and one, just one drink. No one ever came around to offer another beverage. The flight attendants were rude & spent the majority of the flight hanging out in the back gossiping."
Pros: "Staff was professional. Flight was on time"
Pros: "Mr Anthony Brown, gate crew for United in Chicago remembered that I had asked for an aisle seat and, when one became available, he made sure I got it. I was so grateful for his consideration and professionalism."
Cons: "No entertainment system. Few bathrooms. More cramped."
Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."
Pros: "Not much, although I was flying First Class, I waited 4 1/2 hours in a wheelchair at the gate, because of a delay. I believe I could've spent that time in the United Lounge, but noone offered to take me there."
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 time it took to get there"
Cons: "One of the crew members was very rude with an attitude the guys that sat next to us where loud and annoying"
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly."

Cons: "That the first checked bag is not complimentary."
Pros: "On time and even more comfortable seats"
Cons: "No sparkling lime water"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess, another oversold United flight. I was forced to gate check my carry-on by the time my group boarded, though there was plenty of overhead space once I was on the plane."
Pros: "Airplane was clean. The attendant was warm and friendly, made eye contact and seemed concerned about everyone's comfort."
