Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"

Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Crew at the desk were rude. They also enacted policies that I'd never seen before about gate checking, and implied I was crazy when I noted how unusual it was. I literally came off a previous AA flight with the previous policy and they said I was confusing them with AE."

Pros: "There was a lot of entertainment choices"
Cons: "Seats are so crammed. Plane was late."

Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"

Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."

Cons: "Onboard entertainment was not reliable on one of our TVs, and the earphones ports barely worked, had to hold the plugs to hear. MinimL food choices, and you had to go to the rear of the plane to get it. Staff on plane was not super friendly."

Pros: "Smooth ride"

Cons: "In a perfect world, no 2-hour delay."

Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. They accomodated us with free snacks and sandwiches. The flight crew were very professional and were nice to us, because a lot of us were worried about making our flight. They kept us updated with all the changes. They had good entertainment selections. The pilot got us to our destination about 5 minutes early."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Many things Food Services Entertainment"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"

Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."

Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Pros: "Entertainment comfort crew food fligjt"
Cons: "Not 1 thing"

Cons: "No wifi nor power outlets. The entertainment was okay at best."

Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time. Enjoyed the blankets and the inflight movie options were good."
Cons: "Cramped, and we didn't get seats together... Hate the system where you have to pay $30-$95 additionally to choose your seats before check in, just doesn't seem fair when the tickets are already crazy expemsive and you're paying for your luggage as well... if you don't pay extra, you (we) end up sitting across from the restroom for six hours of in and out excitement."

Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."

Pros: "Crew was very upbeat and attentive to passengers. We sat in Main Cabin plus and there was a lot of legroom."
Cons: "1. Limited menu of food for purchase 2. wifi did not work over the Pacific--their wifi is ground based rather than satellite based."

Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"

Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"

Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"

Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

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: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."

Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"

Cons: "Checking a bag on American at LAX is a nightmare. We were lucky to eventually find a worker who actually wanted to help us when the kiosk malfunctioned."

Pros: "I liked the entertainment, and thought the service was good."
Cons: "I didn't like having our seats moved from the rear of the plane to right over the wing, and I am still trying to figure out how to sleep on a plane...not alaska airlines fault. Also, if the flight is operated by american airlines, please make it crystal clear which gate and airline counter I am supposed to check in at, and which frequent flyer program I can count my miles towards."

Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"

Cons: "Flight was canceled with no option to leave until the next day"

Cons: "Flight was changed without notice did NOT go to Charlotte instead flew Detroit to Dallas! To Tampa- a little out of the way. After we were checked in and ready to board I then got a call to notify me the flight was changed. Boarding was awful made me check small carry on when there was several open over-head compartments and several others were walking in with two + carry ons. How do you explain that? I will NEVER fly American Airlines again. The airplane from Dallas to Tampa was ancient, a little scary to even think it was still in the air. The air conditioning was minimal I could hear other passengers complaining it was extremely uncomfortable."

Pros: "The pilot got us home to Detroit!"
Cons: "Flight delay after flight delay after a terrible experience with Spirit and having to switch to your airline."

Cons: "American has never been reliable, and this time was no exception. 3 hour delay and they put me in a hotel 20mins away. Bobby was helpful though at getting me a new flight, but should have given more in food vouchers"

Pros: "Staff was prompt, pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Delays due to mechanical issues."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inter Seat spacing was not convenient."
Cons: "Ensuring seat in front of me was fixed to ensure it doesn’t over recline"

Pros: "The hotel price did not include taxes breakfast"

Cons: "We flew dtw to Frankfort we"

Pros: "It was a smooth, comfortable flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was late and caused a lot of stress and missed layovers. One of the crew members had a bad attitude when I offered to let my bags continue on the flight without me (I originally opted to deplane and stay in Detroit). I was only trying to be helpful and got my head bit off... I get It. It was a stressful situation, but the crew doesn’t need to add insult to injury. They’re getting paid hourly whether flights are on time or not. It’s the passengers who have a right to be anxious."

Cons: "Confusing carryon regulations. Said “no carryons” so I repacked & when arrived at gate EVERYONE had full sized carryons...!"

Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight got hit with a fuel tankard and I had to stay in a hotel for the night. I didn't get to fly home that night and it messed up my entire schedule for the weekend."

Pros: "After the 2nd broken plane, they gave everyone $10 food coupon"
Cons: "Three hour delay, two broken planes, but all things considered not too bad."

Cons: "4 hour delay"

Pros: "Much better leg room on the upgrade. Thanks for the blanket too."
Cons: "And, on a 5.5 hour flight the flight attendants only came down the aisle one time to offer drinks or snacks. The seat was sort of dumpy, my charger wouldn't stay plugged in and the pocket on the seat in front of me was ripped."

Pros: "Efficient, professional and speedy service"

Cons: "It was so late it left me in the lurch and ruined my week"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything, flight was delayed over 6 hours causing me to connecting flight. Spent all day at the airport and didn't go anywhere."

Pros: "Smooth flights"
Cons: "Delayed multiple times. Staff seemed uninterested in passengers. Not compassionate."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The drink service was late and the seats were small"

Cons: "More leg room and on time!"

Cons: "There was only one person rescheduling and we got a faster reroute get plan on the phone. It was all pretty awful and we did not get to our destination until many hours after scheduled. Not at all a good trip."

Pros: "That was the worst traveling experience I've had to date. Yes, I understand there were storms and natural circumstances that held the flight and for that - I understand. What I do not care for is the lack of customer service. There was only one person at the counter in the airport. And let's not mention the unpleasant flight attendent on at 5 hour flight! Nothing offered for the inconvenience. Everyone including the pilot was just as irritated as the passengers. I usually prefer United when flying coast to coast but...worst experience yet."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Fight was delayed and I wasn't notified. I Didn't receive a seat assignment till I got to the gate."

Cons: "We were delayed with no real updates why"

Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"

Pros: "Got a $300 voucher for giving up my seat. Flew with delta on a direct flight instead of having a 2 hour layover and got to my destination almost 2 1/2 hours earlier than originally scheduled. It was a win win."
Cons: "Having to run across the airport to catch my new flight and go through security twice. But in the end it was with it."

Pros: "Relaxing"

Cons: "Seats are a bit cramped"

Pros: "Ontime"
Cons: "At least one check-in baggage should be free for the price."

Pros: "The crew were all very nice and clearly well trained. The seats had plenty of leg room. For being an early flight I was able to take a nap on the plane comfortably."
Cons: "It listed that there was private tvs for each passenger but I didn't see a single screen. Maybe I needed to be more proactive with asking about them."

Cons: "No cash food and beverage"

Pros: "The boarding process went quickly and seats weren't too bad. Flight was pretty painless overall"
Cons: "Overhead bins were full so I had to put my carry on under the seat in front of me meaning less leg room. There was no entertainment."

Pros: "Entertaiment collection was good, kept me engaged throughout for the entire duration of flight."
Cons: "Food was mediocre by standards of an international flight."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Notthing"

Cons: "After my first flight was cancelled for no clear reason, I was rebooked on one which was 8 hours later (not the one of the first flights out). When I arrived to the airport my flight was then delayed another hour. This was two days after my previous flight with United which had us sitting on the tarmac for 2 hours waiting for updates about whether or not we could take off."

Cons: "The crew wasn't the friendliest. Kind of a buzz kill when you're en route to Kauai."

Pros: "Not much positive on this flight other than I was headed home. I had a decent seat but I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "This review is for another flight that paid for the same day as this flight from LA to Lihue. The actual flight for this review is a different flight that I paid to get my friend on so could get home. He pretty much had an equally bad experience. The following is my review from my flight from San Diego to Lihue, through San Fransisco. I paid for both flights but wasn't offered the opportunity to submit a review for the flight I was on so I'm taking this opportunity now to do so. I was on a flight home after losing one of my best friends. The flight attendant was extremely rude, making me feel like she was going out of her way to get me a drink of water and never returned to offer food after they missed me when they went down the isle. The gentleman attending to the first class passengers was beyond rude to anyone attempting to use the lavatory near the first class section as if people were supposed to know that it was only available to first class passengers. I was never offered food and myself and other passengers repeatedly ignored by our flight attendant. The entire flight was freezing cold and the air blowing so loud that I couldn't hear any volume on the movie player I was watching, making that nearly impossible as well. I landed at my destination feeling cold and hungry with a pretty bad taste in my mouth towards United Airlines. I don't normally fly United but due to the untimely hospitalization of one of my best friends and having to fly on such short notice, it was all that was available. I used to be a united mileage member but my points expired and became useless to me, living in Hawaii with very few flights in and out of the state several years ago. They seem to have added flights since then but other airlines have won my loyalty since then. I was hoping for a better experience as I remember having better experiences flying United. After this recent experience, I'm not sure that I will be flying United again, especially given the price of fares and what you get for what you pay. You'd think the staff would be more welcoming knowing that people pay so much to fly and then pay for everything else once on the plane. (A comfortable seat, food, drink, etc)."

Cons: "I didn't like the 5 hour delay... Neither did any other United customer as it seemed like every single flight was delayed to everywhere for only united airlines"

Pros: "NOTHING!!!!!"
Cons: "The plane never left we sat in the plane for a 1 hour and 30 minutes before they told us to get off .. Then they kept saying the plane was leaving up until the time I Miss my connection flight .. Then they make it seem likes its your fault... NEVER AGAIN !!!"

Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."

Cons: "Because my first flight from detroit was an hour late i missed this flight and flew American which that flight was nice"

Cons: "Delay n missed my 2nd flight Then a 50 min flight was canceled"

Pros: "The crew was always striving to make sure the flight was as comfortable as possible. They have me a couple perks for being in the military and that made my flight very enjoyable. I will definitely start flying with United more often"
Cons: "No bad comments on my behalph"

Pros: "friendly crew and good flight,,"
Cons: "why load the plane front to back,,Hassle getting by everyone,,A little common sense would go a long way,,,"

Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there were plenty of empty seats for everyone on to spread out."
Cons: "The flight was minorly delayed for de-iceing, but not more than maybe 30 mins or so. Not even worth saying what I didn't like about the flight when its necessary!"

Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time."
Cons: "Plane was small and the space felt a little tight but was not too bad."

Pros: "Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane departure wa two hours late leaving causing missed connections. There were two United employees at the counter and one left. They were to help us change connections so te line was long and VERY slow. Half of us didn't get the connections changed. We de larded in Houston with connections that were unreasonable. United employees rude and not helpful. I had to fly to San Francisco then to Ontario making a long terrible day."

Pros: "Everything was perfect, from the boarding process to the seats, things went well."
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "The customer service was horrible and I was stranded for two additional days."

Pros: "Not a damn thing."
Cons: "My flight was held back 2 hours because "a flight attendant called off". So I missed my connecting flight "I touched down as the connecting flight was supposed to take off". I was put on a standby list for a flight leaving later that night and I didn't get it. I was told I had to wait until 7am the next morning to get on a flight. After asking, I was given a hotel, cab, and 2 food vouchers. The taxi took me to the hotel united chose. I got there and there were no vacancies. I had to pay for my own taxi to a different hotel that luckily took my voucher for the other hotel. after all this mess I only got 2 hours sleep. The 7am flight waited for its connecting flights. This delay cost me a third of my trip and money on my first night at my hotel."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was 20 min late, and then on top of that an hour delay happened. The courtesy drink I had, which was coffee, was bad. The WiFi I had in my seat wasn't working, and the crew seemed more somber than cheery. I did not at all enjoy my flight. Also, becuase the flight was that late, my ride couldn't pick me up so I had to fork out 50$ for cab fare."

Pros: "We finally arrived, thankful. But upset. The flight was good after we got going.."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and i missed my meeting on Dec.10, 2015.. We were suppose to go Washington to Portland, Maine.instead we went to New Newark..At lenght wait... And after all that waiting we are offered a drink of soda or juice. What gives? Nothing else?"

Pros: "Excellent experience sleek look and roomy"

Cons: "lost bags missed flights rude staff no concern for helping figure out next step"
