Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Attendants were nice and cordial and made the flight seem like a breeze."
Cons: "Wish the plane was little bigger and not overbooked. It’s not good with people who have claustrophobia and bad anxiety."
Pros: "Good overall."
Pros: "Nothing, my flight was delayed so bad that if I would have had taken off I would have been stuck in DFW Airport until probably Friday as I would have had missed my flight and all the flights to PR were sold out until the 19th. Luckily my brother was so proactive that he was able to re-schedule a flight for the 19th."
Cons: "If the flight would have taken off on time."
Pros: "Flight crew were good."
Cons: "My checked baggage did not make it on this flight even though it was checked in over an hour before the flight. I have been getting the runaround at the Baggage Claim area and on the phone. It may be delivered tomorrow afternoon and I have food items in the baggage and it may not be delivered until the afternoon of the next day. They don’t have a good baggage tracking system."
Pros: "We finally got to Madison"
Cons: "There were 5 delays, with no explanations given. When the plane finally took off, after the 5 delays, it made it to Madison and sat on the runway for another hour because there was only one gate operating. In addition, when the plane was in Charlotte we were told that the cleaning crew was working on it, and when we boarded the plane was filthy; trash on the seats, on the floor, and in the pouches. American should be really embarrassed at how far it has fallen."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."
Cons: "Was next to crying child. I do understand crying children. But I should have footed a free glass of rose."
Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Cons: "The flight was canceled; why allow booking for a flight you plan to cancel. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."
Cons: "The entertainment / announcement system has issues. The safety video was interrupted and segments repeated randomly."
Pros: "Friendly crew, meals/snacks/beverage service all excellent, and great movie selection! Return flight slightly delayed but we got notifications in advance. Would highly recommend the DFW to Rome nonstop flight."
Cons: "The seats in economy are comfortable but way too close together, even for a small adult needing minimal leg room."
Pros: "Crew helpful and cheerful"
Pros: "Fairly short trip but was able to used the in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Too many PA announcements and the volume when connected to the TV screens was way too loud! Gave us a heart attack everytime!"
Cons: "the flight was delayed which kept me nervous as I had a connecting flight in the international terminal which I almost missed."
Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."
Pros: "My favorite part was after we all got off, the man helping everyone get their luggage said take one down and pass it down if it’s not yours. It was genius!"
Pros: "It’s a jet"
Cons: "Boarding terrible at DCA, seats cramped"
Cons: "choice of meals"
Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"
Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."
Pros: "Smooth in every way."
Cons: "Just never enough leg room❗️"
Pros: "Food, entertainment. Comfort, crew. On time flight."
Pros: "All I want is clear communication- not strung along. Reasonably comfortable seat - without person next to me too large for seat. Don't gate check my bag then I find plenty of space above my seat. Stop giving people food and drink on short flights as it is unnecessary and it constrains use of the bathroom"
Cons: "The scene of returning bags at the gate of arrival is awkward and other passengers take advantage - blocking walkway etc. please change system and adt a baggage handler to drop bags in a line along one side of the gateway while passengers wait along other side of the gateway"
Pros: "Quiet, easy to sleep on"
Cons: "Running late, but only by 30 mins. Better than it could have been!"
Pros: "New plane, no delays"
Cons: "On way there wasted too much time.with delays"
Cons: "30 minutes late taking off. Therefore arrived late."
Cons: "Baggage was damaged, which required a claim to be submitted. Company policy requires me to take the damaged baggage home, empty it, and return it to the airport. The airport is 1-1/2 hours from my house. They inconvenience me by handling my baggage like an ape and then continue to inconvenience me by requiring me to go way out of my way to get it repaired. American Airlines apparently does not understand what customer service means."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay Uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "It was a good and comfortable flight and a nice crew allthough it was Operators by AA"
Cons: "The food is not overwhelming."
Pros: "Upgraded to business class and it was wonderful"
Cons: "I have no complaints"
Cons: "Boarded small plane too early Air conditioning did not work...sweated whole flight No beverage service seats too small for an adult, and I am only 5'-5""
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though it was a red-eye, it still would have been nice to have a tv for an international flight, or at the least a way to charge your electronics."
Pros: "Nothing to expect from Domestic fight."
Pros: "Nice crew,very efficient."
Pros: "Person at the ticket desk was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough people to help all of the travail let's"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Seats were rough and I didn't understand the process of selecting seating for the return trip, so my wife and I had to sit 10 rows apart a few days after we got married."
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Cons: "the flight was 4 hours late. we were constantly shuffled to different gates. the internet on the flight didn't work."
Pros: "New plane"
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems. Had to check my carry on due to lack of space but my bag arrived quickly at my destination so this was not a big deal."
Cons: "Boarding is always a free for all. Even though passengers are called in groups no one listens and the boarding process never seems very efficient."
Pros: "Everything was nice and comfy"
Cons: "Nothing everything is perfect"
Pros: "Checking in was a breeze. Flight crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Extra baggage fees. Older plane missing some of the common amenities like wifi and individual tvs. The cabin Tv was small."
Cons: "The flight was super late."
Pros: "The crew was nice. When I finally arrived in Denver, Marlin in customer service was the only saving grace for United for me. When I asked for options for an earlier flight into Rapid City so I didn’t have to wait 24 hours and miss my visit with my sister, he looked at different hubs (Chicago, Minneapolis) to see if they had any available flights into Rapid, he checked for double bookings, and when he couldn’t find anything, he put me on the standby list for the first flight out in the morning and wrote down the flight information for all of the United flights from Denver for the following day. Marlin provided excellent customer service and was a huge credit to the company."
Cons: "The flight was supposed to leave at 3:56 pm and didn’t leave until 7:30 pm. I would estimate at least 15-20 people missed connecting flights because of the delay. According to the United app, the delay initially started in Portland due to mechanical issues, which took over 3 hours. Then, there was a weather delay in San Francisco according to the gate agent - there was a ground hold and no planes were landing or flying out. At some point, I would think another plane would have been an option rather than delaying a flight for this long and disrupting holiday travel for so many people."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, so taking off would have been an improvement."
Pros: "Left on time. Deplaned into a tunnel, which was great because it was raining"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by 3 hours. Hostess was super loud repeated destination at least 100 times."
Cons: "Pilot was calm and understanding"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Endless delays on top of delays."
Pros: "It was efficient."
Cons: "Crew wasn’t too friendly but not unpleasant either."
Cons: "Worst customer service ever."
Cons: "Rude crew members."
Pros: "Short flight - 37 minutes or so."
Cons: "Bathroom door kept swinging open."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "We were 2 hour 40 minutes late due to no crew available. What happened to planning for contingencies? Just confirmed how horrible United Airlines has become! (They used to be one of my favorites!0"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks. Good legroom"
Cons: "I chose our seats online upon booking about 5 months ago and when we got to check in we were told we weren’t even sitting together for a 3.5 hour flight. Not sure why we got leftover seats when we chose already And booked months ago"
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "The flight on the way west was awful. It left Albany almost two hours late making me miss my connection to LA. At Newark airport the next two flights were overbooked so United put me up in a hotell The next morning the first two flights were overbooked but they put me on the third flight. That was supposed to come into LAX a half hour early but a passenger became very ill so they landed in Des Moines for the medical emergency. I realize that wasn't United's fault, but I don't think it should have taken so long to take off, and we were well over an hour late upon arrival."
Pros: "That even though my luggage was put on the wrong flight they got it to me soon at home"
Cons: "That my luggage was put on the wrong flight"
Cons: "Flight was rescheduled because connection was missed due to United"
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."
Cons: "Flight 1039 dec 16 was delayed due to late inbound arrival to Aruba. United gave the reason "delayed Maintenance" which United denied as mechanical failure. We missed connected flight to Albany. United gave us only option: morning flight to Washington and then To Albany which is inacceptable option. We took rental car. Also: Workers at Newark do not coordinate. Super Slow and give disinformation."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay!"
Cons: "The prior flight was delayed because after taxing, a crew wanted to remove an uncooperative passenger and went back to the gait. Subsequently, we arrived in Washington DC with only a few minutes before our next flight Albany was scheduled to leave. Because we had to do check our carry-on bags, we were 5 minutes later to the gait where the airline refused to wait for us to board although another passenger who did not have to wait for her bag was able to board the flight Albany. We therefore had to take a shuttle to Reagan international Airport, fly on a different airline to Hartford Connecticut, rent a car and drive 2 hours to finally reach our destination in Albany."
Pros: "United flew from Puerto Rico to Newark - did not attempt to schedule through airports affected by the hurricane in the southern US"
Cons: "United flights out of San Juan were expensive for those of us who were stuck by hurricane Irma and delayed. I paid almost double what my original carrier charged, but at least we got out 4 days earlier. I see that the carriers have dropped/frozen rates for customers stranded by hurricane Maria, but United was listed at least $100-$200 per ticket above other carriers"
Pros: "I arrived in Omaha in one piece."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "2 hours delay"
Cons: "The rules of basic economy are far too restricted"
Pros: "Staff were friendly"
Cons: "The staff were very nice but should have told us about the delays which added up to over 5 hrs. And they lost our luggage. This Newark to Albany flight is known for beinh incredibly unreliable."

Cons: "United flights always delayed!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Nothing to drink offered, not even water"
Cons: "Flight delayed in Washington, then after we boarded sat on a hot plane for an hour while flight crew did "training". United never apologises for delaying flights, seems like they don't care for the customers at all."
