Airline reviews

Cons: "They already know they will have a delay but they don’t act before happen"

Pros: "Nicole and I really like the Economy Plus seating with the extra legroom. It is a good compromise between sitting in cramped Economy seating and spending way too much money in Business Class."
Cons: "I wish that the Seattle Tacoma Airport has an Admiral's Club Lounge. Actually, I might as well fess up... I wish that EVERY airport had an Admiral's Club Lounge. I also wish it would be possible to "gift" miles to family members. I would love to have my son and daughter-in-law take advantage of my miles to go on a honeymoon."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Better snacks."

Cons: "Wider seating"

Cons: "Healthy snack options"

Pros: "nice entertainment when you use the AA app."
Cons: "Unbelievable turbulent and bumpy ride. Not AA's fault but the question was "how was the trip?" It was a white-knuckle ride."

Pros: "that it's over."
Cons: "sat on tarmac for 45 minutes! AFTER landing... unacceptable."

Cons: "Delayed for an hour"

Pros: "No issues - which is what I expect"
Cons: "USB chargers on seats"

Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"

Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"

Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."

Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined so far that the guy in that seat had his head less than a foot from my face and my knees were being smashed by his seat. Very painful."

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: "One nickel hostess"
Cons: "PAID FR UPGRADDED SESTS AND THEY WETE GIVEN TO LATE ARRIVALS."

Pros: "Other passengers"
Cons: "It was terribly hot and the attendants didn’t serve us regularly. The skipped us when we wanted cold water:"

Pros: "The flight crew was nice. They kept us well hydrated."
Cons: "I expected more from the in-flight entertainment on a 6 hour flight. If I had known I would have brought my own tablet and watched the free in-flight movies that were offered via free Wi-Fi."

Cons: "Flight left early on top of us arriving in Philadelphia late. Hadw the staff been more helpful we would've made the connecting flight. This occurred to multiple people on our flight from Rome."

Pros: "Both the departing and returning flights departed in schedule and arrived a solid half hour early. Staff was accommodating and friendly, and very helpful with me juggling luggage and a toddler by myself."

Pros: "The fight was not over crowded."

Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"

Pros: "The aircratf and on time operation"
Cons: "Gate agents not following AA.com policies to charge extra fees"

Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."

Pros: "There’s nothing better than a non-stop."
Cons: "Oy, they offered an $800 credit if I let them bump me. But they had no way to get me to my destination! I guess instead of asking for volunteers, they should have asked for people who really didn’t want to go. Then the flight attendant announced, “we’re really low on food”. Really? This is a SEVEN hour flight!"

Pros: "seemed more comfortable on this plane, still squishy."
Cons: "really.. a 6 hour flight with just a cookie.."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "it was not BA flight American Airlines. For a 6-hour cross-country flight, there was no entertainment of any kind. More than that, no blanket or a pillow was available which made the trip so much worse. Worst of all, the last 90 minutes of the flight all the toilets ran out of water so they can't even be flushed. First time I have ever come across such a problem. Absolutely terrible."

Cons: "Left s half hour late because they had to shift cargo, then we taxied on the runway for what seemed like a half hour. My wife and I purchased our tickets in July but could never pick our seats and ended up 9 rows apart."

Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"

Cons: "no charging station"

Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."

Cons: "close it!"

Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."
Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"

Pros: "Delayed"

Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"

Cons: "Bad as above"

Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."

Cons: "unbelievably tightly spaced seats. Incredibly uncomfortable to have knees pushed into seat ahead - - so tight almost impossible to get feet under seat."

Pros: "There was movie available"
Cons: "-There were no Blankets for coach even though I wasn't feeling good at all."

Pros: "left and arrived on time. helpful staff. no glitches. reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "i did not rate food and entertainment because i did not partake."

Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "My bag was lost and it still hasn't showed up at the airport. Seems like I would get some kind of credit of some kind for this inconvenience."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "No tvs"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "See above comments"

Pros: "From Seattle to DFW, we had the best flight! Brand new plane with individual entertainment screens!"

Pros: "Unable to Rate food & entertainment (night flight) I can, however, rate comfort since it was the worst crammed in seating ever!! They talk about the increase in violent behavior. Perhaps American Air could step up to the plate and offer a bit of comfort for hard working passengers. How? Easy to figure out!! Give us leg room for crying out loud."
Cons: "Crammed seating... No leg room.... Volunteered to check carry on... (Big mistake) had a longish wait for bags.."

Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."

Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"

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."

Pros: "Boarding was fast"

Cons: "Delayed boarding, no room in overhead bins even after being charged extra for carryon and had to stuff it at my feet, even at row 15, after being charged more for that too."

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful"
Cons: "The food was very average"

Cons: "Late start by approximately 30 minutes. Made up the entire 30 in the air. Smooth ride all the way!"

Pros: "Everything was fine once we got replacement plane"
Cons: "Flight could be on time, not 4 hours late"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, so taking off would have been an improvement."

Pros: "Crew was phenomenal!!!! So attentive and professional. Great customer service"

Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight I have ever had. The plane was so hot we were sitting there sweating the entire time. It made it impossible to sleep or focus on a movie or anything, and it made the flight feel 10 times longer."

Pros: "Check-in process was smooth"

Pros: "Able to use my frequent flier miles."
Cons: "Boarding, comfort, de-planing."

Pros: "Leg room was good in economy plus but no entertainment. Flight ran on time though."
Cons: "WiFi was broken and only refreshments offered! No meals for purchase only snack boxes that were horrible."

Pros: "Snacks"

Pros: "Flight was delayed after boarding due to engine troubles and had to get down to board on to a different flight again"
Cons: "No compensation offered for the inconvenience"

Pros: "made it home safe"
Cons: "Boarding protocol. we were traveling together and were placed on opposite ends of the aircraft. very cramped seats. would prefer not to fly them again."

Pros: "Nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Hard, uncomfortable seats."

Pros: "No problems and the crew was friendly and helpful."

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: "NA"
Cons: "NA"

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

Cons: "Seats were incredibly uncomfortable. Why no food on a 4 hr+ flight?"

Pros: "Flight attendants were exceptionally great! Gave out free drinks and snacks for no reason."

Cons: "I was very cold!"

Cons: "Crew is like very impolite for passengers"

Pros: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."
Cons: "Load $60k worth of my video equipment."

Pros: "Really fast and efficient boarding"
Cons: "The flight was really bumpy which I realize isn't anyone's fault but I couldn't wait till we landed...also they announced that as soon as we were at a certain altitude they would begin beverage service....which I was really looking forward too , and then ten minutes later they announced that they were cancelling beverage service."

Pros: "kept on delaying and didn't take off until almost 3 hrs later"

Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Cons: "IF A PASSENGER CANT FIT IN ONE SEAT MAKE THEM BUY A SECOND. I SPENT 2 HOURS WITH SHREK SITTING ON TOP OF ME"

Pros: "Very nice crew who were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "Waiting 5 hours for this flight, after a very long overseas flight just about did me in. Wish they had more than one or two flights a day from Denver to Spokane."

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."

Pros: "At gate, staff generously gave me priority boarding because I'm pregnant."
Cons: "We couldn't access the inflight entertainment because we didn't have the United App and you can't download it once the flight has started (flight was operated by United)."

Pros: "Went thru security without taking off shoes in Harbor Sky Int airport! Flight was on time and smooth. I had my seat picked and flight was not overly full. Non stop flight for under $55.00. What is not to like?"

Pros: "Our departure was delayed by a pump problem of some kind. Then the pilot aborted a takeoff because of another error. Needless to say, we were a bit nervous."

Pros: ". Easy boarding, snacks, overall, everything was great!"

Pros: "The flight was quick and painless"
Cons: "Yeah, it was a bit frustrating trying to rush and hustle from gate to gate with how many times they changed the location!!"

Pros: "Delays seem to be frequent with united and the staff is always in a bad mood. Will not fly again with them, I flew one leg on a different airline so I wouldn't miss my international connection as they wanted to delay 6 hours!!!"

Cons: "Didn't happen"

Pros: "It was Great Thank you"

Pros: "There was nothing good to like about this leg of my trip."
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."

Cons: "It was so cold on this flight. Like ice cold. It wasn't just me, I traveled with 3 other people who were spread out on the plane and all of them noted the sub zero temperatures."

Cons: "Everything - seemed like the airline staff had no concern about passengers being delayed 3 hours arriving around 4 am in the morning - we paid for an afternoon flight and ended up with a red eye - Least you coils do is refund us the fair difference and pay for transportation that we would not have had to pay had the flight been on time and our families would have been able to pick us up"
