Cons: "Nothing much!"
Pros: "One crew guy seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most others seemed happy."

Cons: "The seat I have had 13C for the last 3 flights to and from Miami on this plane has the controller broken where it does not stay in place and pops out.

Cons: "American Airlines couldn’t make plane seats anymore cramped. Cabin was very cold with no way to control climate. If you don’t buy first class or premium be ready for very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "I liked the fact that, my flight was miraculously on time leaving salt lake city"
Cons: "I don’t like, however, the fact that 3 of the last 5 times I’ve flown American round trip midland tx to Salt Lake City I have missed my connecting flight on the way back due to no fault of my own. I have flown this trip once a month for the past six months and have to do it two more times before December. American sucks"
Pros: "Fast flight that included an afternoon snack, that was a nice surprise. Tight seats and no entertainment, which is to be expected for such as short flight. Got to our destination about 25 minutes early!"

We were delayed approximately 4 hours total. Had to take a taxi ($85) to Fajardo to HOPEFULLY catch last ferry to Culebra. Guess AmericansAirlines doesn’t care if you have to sleep at the dock!"

Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."

Pros: "I enjoyed the first class seat with the bed.."

Cons: "Flight was actually non existent. It took us two days to get to our destination, Cancun so we lost a day of vacation there. We had to stay a night in Dallas and traverse all over the airport between American and Untied to chase down our vouchers for luggage, dinner, and rooms. Exhausting. We had to travel two hours in an old mini van from Columbia to St. Louis to even get started on our vacation flights. We did not have a pleasant experience with United on either side of the trip."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."

Cons: "Wish there was an option for me or even Lufthansa to resell the ticket I couldn't use. $500 wasted"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time in the plane. There was confusion as they had passengers going both ways in the aisle .. this forced several ppl to stand in the aisle a long time. One of the air hostess had a major attitude. For example one passenger who was stuck in the middle of other passengers asked her politely if she could help him put the carry on in an overhead bin near her .. and she responded "I cant help you, you need to put it up yourself sir". Not something one expects. She was also terse with passengers, ordering them in an annoyed tone."
Pros: "Very quick flight from ORD to BHM involving hardly any bad weather which got me home early."
Cons: "The online entertainment had poor connectivity and did not work, forcing me to take a nap to kill time."
Pros: "I was returning from an international flight, and had carried my smallish rollerboard +1 personal bag all through (including outbound) with no problems. Just on the last leg, IAD to RDU, the gate agent forced me to check the bag, even though the flight was not full, and the bag could easily fit in the overhead bin. I was in Group 3."
Cons: "Forced to gate check rollerboard for no reason."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. We were always informed of what was going on."

Cons: "Couldn't get internet based entertainment on my iPhone as advertised"
Cons: "we had to sit on runway for 1 hr to burn fuel to lighten the load. did not get served until 1 hr of fly time."
Cons: "Wifi never worked, mentioned several times to crew and didn't have decency to check or follow up. Attendants were crabby at best and were acting like they were doing passengers a favor by even. Wing there. Very rude and unprofessional to every question. Captain came out to go to bathroom twice and chatted up remaining flight attendant for several minutes- making it so passengers couldn't approach restrooms."
Pros: "The flight attendant was professional and pleasant"
Cons: "Boarding in Houston was disorganized"
Cons: "Two hours late!"
Pros: "The Fresno staff was incredible, patient, and very helpful. Take-off and landing was super smooth."
Cons: "There was no food, only a glass of water. The steward was very kind though. The layover at LAX seemed unrealistic. When I called ahead of time about it, a United employee told me it was "do-able". We barely made it, even with riding on the skycap's cart. If I hadn't had that cart ride, I would definitely have missed it. Reasonable layovers would be more helpful."
Cons: "Again, United changed my original departure time from Burlington, VT to San Diego (via Chicago) from 10 am to 6:30 am. This meant an overnight stay in Burlington and loss of sleep and my free breakfast. In addition, I was stuck with 4+ hr layover in Chicago. The Chicago terminal was a mass of swarming people. Horrible!"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was great."
Cons: "I HATED that our flight was delayed. Not even delayed once or twice, but a total of 6 times?! thats just ridiculous. Sitting in the airport for over 6 hours should NEVER be tolerated."
Pros: "Onboard service"
Cons: "The fact that we had to pay extra in order to have room to Cross our legs."
Pros: "Delays, rudeness, doesn't have its act together. Must be United Airlines"
Cons: "Had the most uncomfortable seats on the plane seats didn't recline as well . Also was giving no food not even a snack for a international flight which was absolutely redicoulous. Had to pay for bags when I fly American Airlines or southwest they are free. So your prices really aren't that great after you have to pay for everything."
Pros: "Tailwind got it all over faster. The flight crew was professional."
Cons: "I paid for the insurance just in case I needed to change my flight. Well I did need to change my flight to get a few more things done before returning home. The answer I recieved when I called was that I had to pay 600 dollars for the change and then file a claim for possible reimbursement. The whole round trip flight only cost $250."
Pros: "Seats are to small but fortunately sat directly behind first class and had plenty of leg room. The new entertainment system worked well."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The size of the plane"
Pros: "New crew"
Cons: "TINY seats! I'm 5'11 and I had a hard time being comfortable and I find it incredibly unfair to have to now pay more for the exit row??? The person in front kicks back their seat and suddenly the TV screen on the back of the seat is in my lap"
Pros: "Free entertainment offered on our flight home."
Cons: "Confusing baggage claim information/lack thereof, spotty WiFi, difficulty locating a United representative to resolve our seat issue"
Pros: "The flight boarded early and orderly. We were able to take off a few minutes early because of that. Flight & seats were very comfortable. Crew were very courteous & professional (even at that early hour). Arrived at SFO approx. 15-20 minutes early. Wish all of my flights went this great. Thank You"
Cons: "I didn't order any food, was only given a snack so I can't really comment on food. There were plenty of drinks offered by crew throughout entire flight."
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Luggage was not in Birmingham for the flight until next day in the afternoon"
Pros: "Leg room seemed better. Flight was early arriving in Vancouver. Flight crew kept us informed about slight turbulence and arrival time, Pilot landed plane very smoothly."
Cons: "This is minor: the small package of complimtary food (a sweet wafer) was not good. Something more substantial would have been appreciated for the long flight."
Pros: "New plane, courteous staff. everything on time--what else could you want?"
Cons: "There were some crying babies, (5 of them--yikes) but nothing you could do anything about."
