Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was a little delayed, but not terribly so. Crew was friendly, airplane looked clean and fresh."
Cons: "Entertainment on the plane (American Airlines Airbus A321) didn’t exist, unless you had the AA app and purchased the WiFi plan from the airline. Only food offered was a breakfast cookie for economy passengers."
Cons: "We asked if the Cajun chicken (which by the way isn’t anything like Cajun chicken) contained any nuts as one of us in the party is severely allergic, only to wait more than 15 minutes and were told they don’t have an allergen sheet so they don’t know! Pls take food allergies seriously!"
Pros: "Crew fine. Plane ok. Legroom better than usual."
Cons: "Re-routed mid flight and forced delays. AA has been awful all holiday weekend."
Pros: "The flight actually arrived ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "On time departure. Meal service."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"

Cons: "The DVD/ movies was having an issue.., couldn’t play.. I had to ask to have it reset a few times."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "very very old plane"
Pros: "Getting off."
Cons: "Boarding the way there, they did not honor my AA Advantage card to board earlier because my boarding pass did not say so. Even after seeing it said so in the computer system, they refused to honor it. Further, there were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."
Pros: "Pretty standard flight"
Cons: "Inconvenient timing and overcrowded with obnoxious children sitting on laps. No attempts made to change their behavior by crew or parents."
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!"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late and we were not given an update until we started boarding. No alternatives were offered to those with tight connections."

Pros: "On time and no hassles."
Cons: "Uncomfortable old dirty aircraft."
Pros: "Vegetarian chickpea curry were delicious"
Cons: "7 hour flight with no individual entertainment, plane was not clean chairs worn and controls were filthy. One flight attendant asked “Are you going to eat”? Customer interaction leaves much to be desired."
Pros: "Flight delayed and gate aircraft changed and different gate"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The engine noise was loud."
Pros: "Sat at the gate for a while before pushing off. An announcement would be nice. Crammed into tiny seats. Wi fi didn't work (broken yesterday and they didn't fix). Very limited entertainment options on an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Reasonably on time. Quit trying to sell us credit cards. How about improving the flying experience?"
Cons: "Flight crew was late and didn’t try and make things move faster to make up time. Kept saying they wanted to go Puerto Rico and that’s where they should have been going."
Pros: "Good piloting...courteous on board service"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not operational. No food..only simple snack. Even willing to pay only a simple snack box is available...few choices due to length of flight being under 3 hours."
Cons: "Plane was delayed all day and when we finally boarded we were told it was due to an engine problem!! Not good!!"
Pros: "Taking the exit door makes a difference in having enough leg room. Everyone was nice an helpful."

Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."
Cons: "The staff, specifically Stephen, need to focus when serving who he served and where he left off! 5 passengers were not served at all until they came around for trash which we did not have! Then were told there were not any full meals left! If you booked that many tickets the amount of meals should match!"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Slow on return of gate checked bags. A little late in getting off the ground."
Pros: "Communication from personnel was good. The desk workers did there best to deal with upset customers"
Cons: "We were delayed to do weather. Nothing AS could do but they tried."
Pros: "The options for entertainment were great."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. I received errors when trying to access gogoinflight on my tablet, even when I had the most updated app. Therefore I was unable to use the app during my flight to Philadelphia. Also, when checking in from our original departure location, MCO, we were not provided our boarding pass or luggage tags for our final destination, Barcelona, only to our connecting flight, Philadelphia. The connecting flight was delayed in MCO for an 1 hour and a half, after we have boarded the plane. So we waited in the plane for the whole hour and half while a maintenance issue was being resolved. The delay almost cost us to be late for our final flight to Barcelona. Since we were not given our boarding passes for PHL to BCL it caused confusion when trying to board our plane in PHL to Barcelona, and also caused for our baggage to not arrive with the flight. After landing, we spent an additional 2 hours at the Airport going through customs, and waiting on line for the lost and found desk for baggage in Barcelona. The lost and found desk had three agents available to assist, however we can only talk to one which was designated specifically for American Airlines. This caused a very long wait time of 1 hour. We were advised the bags stayed in Phildelaphia since they did not have the additional luggage tags, and will not arrive till the next day. Overall the experience within the Airport kiosks, service desks, and baggage check in' s was not a pleasant experience. I believe many of these issues could have been avoided if the American Airlines agents were more knowledgeable and attentive."
Cons: "Delayed like 5 times, finally canceled. Rerouted thru additional stops than bought."
Pros: "The accommodations. Loved the high tech tv and choices on the entertainment, as well as the more advanced reading lights. LOVED LOVED LOVED the charging ports available."
Cons: "The headrests/seats weren't very comfortable."
Cons: "There was no wifi and no screen on the seat. I could not see the screen for the movie. Airline was old and also it took 2 hours to get going because they had to check the engine."
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite."
Pros: "Normally I've been on planes where the seats aren't that great! But these seats were wonderful! :) I was out like a baby!"
Cons: "I don't really like the complimentary pretzels."
Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."
Cons: "In seat entertainment"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was safe and early then estimates timd landing"
Cons: "Meal is not enough for older people (my mom over 60y) then i think that is not enough to adults too Meal is not good tatste like before when fly with quatas only No appetizer like before too fly with quatas we can eat 6 - 8 times include snack"
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Pros: "Never got there. We are still in the Dominican Republic where United Airlines abandoned us."
Cons: "They shouldn't have abandoned my family in the Dominican Republic."
Pros: "Seat space"
Cons: "Better full wifi"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2.5 hours."
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Not here as long as the last place but was still teribly confusing. The airport is not very new user friendly. I had to ask ppl multiple times where gates were and issues with time changes etc. Was pretty nerve wracking for a first time traveller to the states."
Cons: "The flight was canceled, so taking off would have been an improvement."
Pros: "Excellent landing"
Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"

Cons: "Nothing :("
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight"
Cons: "Snacks are never good. No TV."
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 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: "Upgraded to first class which was great."
Cons: "Had to change planes. Entertainment did not allow me to play movies. I could view the trailers."
Pros: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Pros: "They gave us free tv since we had to wait so long and they made us wait for an hour on the tarmac."
Cons: "We had a connecting flight from San Francisco that we missed due to their delays. We still don't know why it was delayed. They didnt give a clear or concise reason for the delays. Our flight landed a few minutes before our connecting flight departed and instead of holding the plane like they have done in other reviews I've read they actually took off early. We were automatically given tickets to the next flight out to our final destination (which was 6 hours later.) This was sucky but we didn't have control over it so we dealt with it. However when we went to customer service to print our new tickets we were "greeted" with two apathetic employees. The first one we didn't actually get to interact with because after waiting in line for 10 minutes when it was finally our turn he held his hand up to stop us from walking up to the counter and just left. No explanation just headed out. So we headed over to the "premier" line for a procedure that should literally take 3 minutes to interact with the next employee who made it somehow our fault that we were mildly upset with the situation. My father always told me United "sucks" we gave them a chance but we should have heeded his fatherly advice. Oh and a bonus my traveling partner has a broken pelvis so sitting around for hours on end was just salt to the wound."
Pros: "Friendly service! Good legroom"
Pros: "No problems on the way home."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In a decade of travel I've had three lost bags. Two of which were Air Canada. So I'm going to avoid them."
Pros: "Cabin and cockpit crews great. "Food" = small bag pretzels. Entertainment was available, but too expensive. Did not observe anyone buying it. More leg room than previous flight."
Cons: "United wi fi did not work during either flight. Phone service only worked on the ground,"
Cons: "I checked and paid for my luggage and alpt of peoe with carry on luggage had theirs checked for free. Totally unfair"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "We were boarded on a plane that was missing a part and sat for an hour and a half. Then we were taken off that plane and put on another with no money back or any sort of sorry. Had to miss work that night so it cost me money out of pocket."
Pros: "Nice easy one. Quick flight, on time, no issues."
Cons: "$6 for one hour of TV is ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and we got in to BZN a little early, which was great."

Pros: "Pilot communicated everything"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. The flight attendant's were extremely welcoming. I will fly United again."
Cons: "On my first flight segment there was an issue with wifi. I was not able to connect. Also, the route was unnecessarily long. I flew a different carrier home and cut 3 hours in flying time."

Pros: "Friendly service."
Cons: "No entertainment and no where to plug in my phone."
Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded"

Cons: "Departure was initially delayed an hour, then it turned out it was only delayed 20min. They went back and forth for a bit. Same thing happened at Newark airport. Pilot announced we'd be taxi-ing around waiting for gate, then a min later comes back to say we actually have a gate ready. Not sure why so many miscommunications."
Pros: "Crew were fine."
Cons: "Twelve hours of horrible delays, missed connections, and running through airports due to poor aircraft maintenance and mechanical problems. Will never fly United again if I have a choice."
