Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane."
Cons: "Bring back beverage service when you can!"
Pros: "Great Crew on the Second Leg from DFW to SPI"
Pros: "Crew members were all very pleasant and personable. A very special experience with the local ticket agent / boarding agent (double duty) in Guadalajara: Maria Hernandez (or perhaps Fernandez) who was pleasant, professional, helpful and even called us respectfully by name ("Mr. and Mrs. Petrusek") She is an outstanding representative of American Airlines! Gracias to her!!"

Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth and arrived more than thirty minutes early."

This was the 3rd fight that had issues with electronics."

Cons: "See above. I like Kayak"
Pros: "Smooth Travel! AA is great"
Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and informative. They were very helpful. The"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable. They were hard and so narrow I had to sit crooked in the seat to keep from getting banged into by the service carts and every person going by to the bathrooms. I'm not tiny, but I'm not huge either, it was just overcrowded. It was also very hot in the airplane the entire way from Phoenix to Spokane. My husband, who is always cold, was even hot."

Cons: "The 45 minute bag time that's it may or may not be able to go 45 mins within boarding ."

Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Cons: "Three gate changes and 45 minute delay. Same happened two years ago"
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Cons: "I know there is little to be done about who you get seated next to. I also know you do your best with full flights. However I was seated next to a frightening woman who touched me and laid on my the whole flight. No matter what I did, she moved closer to touch me and did not give me personal space for the entire flight. Since it was a full flight I couldn't ask to be moved."

Cons: "temperature was too hot and stuffy."
Pros: "Price. That's it."
Cons: "We sat in Orlando waiting to take off - delayed for OVER 30 minutes because ---> the catering truck failed to show up. The captain aired his frustration of the catering crew. Supposed to arrive in Philly approximately 2:24pm - we didn't arrive until 3:03pm. Baggage took another 20-30 minutes. All American emoloyees looked tired. Not one smile either to Orlando or from Orlando. (Oh yeah - we were late taking off to start my vacation from Philly because a crew failed to arrive to "start the engines of the aircraft," per captain's announcement. The entire aircraft boarded and sat, again, for 30 minutes without any air conditioning or air flow in the cabin.) Blah experience. Blah employees. And two different captains announced the reasons for delay with an "annoyed tone.""
Cons: "Please read above."
Cons: "Super small and crowded flight, no safe distance whatsoever. A particular older flight attendant was cranky."
Cons: "Way too crowded on the plane"
Cons: "Crew member in first class not polite at all... And there was no food on a 5hr flight even in first class."
Cons: "Their baggage system is a joke. They demanded I remove my smaller carry- on so someone with a huge carry-on could use the overhead space. They ask boarders to please check Carr-on luggage for free on full flights but they don’t. United just needs to count the bags and demand the overage be checked."

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: "There was no in-flight entertainment. I like when the planes have the TV's so you can watch."

Cons: "We had to wait over two hoirs for them to het us a plane. They allowed United Staff members to dead head to Scranton amd bumped paying costomers. They flight attended stopped her speech to make a mother keep her infant quiet. The The agent at the gate continued to give false information on the delays."

Cons: "I paid for first class and It was the worst flight I have ever been on, sat in the plane at the gate for over an hour with a huge women that was brought up to1st class from economy, she smelled, she was a lush. There was a child that did not quit crying the entire flight, I could not get off the plane fast enough, there was nothing1st class about the flight, we needed fuel after we boarded, then it was a cargo issue,and then it was airport, we should not have been on the plane until the plane was ready for flight.very poor planning you should be embarrassed about the flight."
Pros: "Stewardesses we're kind and helpful"
Cons: "One of the stewards spoke ill and loudly of a passenger he was irritated with as passengers were exiting the plane in Houston, which I found to be incredibly unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew & flight! Ladies were really nice & we were about 45 mins early which is always a plus!"
Cons: "No in-seat chargers No entertainment Small seats"
Pros: "Pretty typical domestic flight. The crew on this flight definitely seemed tired and "over it". The one attendant stood blankly, staring off to the back of the plane robotically going through the safety. Far cry from the staff on my previous 10+ hour flight from Munich."
Cons: "No free entertainment whatsoever, and even though the screen reads that flights under 2 hours are $5.99, and our flight was a few minutes under 2 hours, the price was still the regular $7.99. Not worth it."
