Pros: "Seat cramped"

Pros: "Crew was very helpful. I volunteered to move so a mother could sit next to her 4 1/2 year old daughter. The flight attendant found me a seat with no other passenger. She also comped by glass of wine."
Cons: "I wish the flight was a bit longer so I could eat a bit."

Cons: "It took only 20 minutes to fly there but 20 minutes waiting to get off the ground in 25 minutes to circle around Philadelphia before landing. Not good when they reduce the size of the seats to 17 inches most people shoulders are wider than that. No food service no snack no drink and just snarky empl"

Cons: "on time departure"

Cons: "Flight was delayed, but there was clear weather in both Boston and DC. Did not get home until after 1 AM, completely exhausted."

Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."

Pros: "Perfect from start to finish"

Pros: "Liked sitting in the bigger leg room. Short flight was a bonus."
Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."

Cons: "Plane had plenty of room for carry on bags. No need for valet bag check."

Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"

Pros: "Seats are terrible. My back hurts after the journey. Leg room is bad too."

Pros: "Vegetarian meal was actually good!"
Cons: "They didn’t give me ice cream :("

Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rickity old plane. Needs updates badly. No drink service options. Cash only bar? Hello, this is the 21st century calling the 20th... You can have your plane and payment methods beck."

Pros: "Nothing really, very upsetting start of a vacation."
Cons: "The layover in Boston was an hour or so, but the miscommunication between American Airlines and Iberia was such, that my luggage never left the US. I am very upset cause Iberia did not even provided any good ground help in Lisbon - Portugal, with the most rude personnel I ever had to deal with that was actually annoyed I was complaining they lost my luggage, they offer no assisatance."

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."

Cons: "Food was not good at all."

Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."

Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost connection"

Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."

Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."

Pros: "The Resolution team assisted me initially when I arrived to correct an issue from my online attempt. The agent printed bag checks for me to my final destination and told me how to get needed boarding pass for the final stage. How wonderful to have pleasant and professional personal attention."

Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."

Cons: "Attempted to make my connection which was in another terminal. Could not get onboard as they shut the doors. My rerouted flight was in a different terminal. Overall a very disappointing travel experience."

Pros: "short flight so I would not expect any particular issues."

Cons: "Checkin"

Pros: "Crew was ok, did their best considering the circumstances, but even they were getting aggravated and were short with the passengers near the end."
Cons: "The Washington airport is horrible. The gate we left from was not a gate but a series of doors that buses came to. This wouldn't be so bad if they were able to handle it in an orderly way, but the airport showed complete incompetence in organizing anything and there were people everywhere trying to find the right door which kept changing on them, and the times kept changing...it was a mess. Then, when we finally got on the plane and were about to take off, the air traffic control tower called and said that their flight path was incorrect and to not take off...but didn't give them a new flight path for nearly two hours as we sat on the runway. Nationalize the airports in DC, fire the whole lot and start fresh, I'd say."

Pros: "The flight was short, only 1.35 hours."
Cons: "To start, the boarding process is a chaos. First class and executive platinums should board first, but of course the gate agent was completely clueless and rude, even to an ExPlat. Althiugh the flight is only 1.35 hours, I was surprised that flight attendants didn't even make an effort to offer a drink service. No turbulence or anything, just seems they were lazy."

Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was great. The flight attendants were pleasant and helpful and the pilot gave timely and useful announcements. The coffee and free cookies were quite good as well (surprisingly, especially for the coffee)."
Cons: "As a frequent United flyer, I was a bit taken aback to see that AA charges for their movie streaming to your personal device."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Horrible delay due to maintenance. Seat cushion completely gone. Forced to wait on shuttle bus too long"

Pros: "Only about half full, new plane was very clean, excellent snack options in First, attentive crew"
Cons: "On a windy day, our landing was bumpy and the pilot pulled up at the last second. After a fatal landing accident in the news, it was nerve-wracking, but I appreciate the crew's decision!"

Pros: "The flight was only ten minutes late."
Cons: "Gate 35x at National just doesn't work. A woman fell on the ice trying to get to the shuttle bus, on which we sat for a long time before leaving for the plane. After a chaotic boarding, the plane sat around as the flight became late, and the pilots gave no explanation for the delay or hint of when we might take off."

Pros: "Wheelchair service was great at all airports except at Pittsburgh on my return flight. No one came to get me in the wheelchair, and I was assured that I would have the service at every airport. This is the second time on a flight that no one has gotten me at Pittsburgh on my return. I had to carry my purse and carry--on bag by myself from the plane to the baggage area where my husband was waiting. Sadly, that prevents me from giving an excellent to the staff in Pittsburgh for this service. This is only for my return trip at Pittsburgh. The flight from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia on the first part of my trip was excellent otherwise. All staff serving special assistance did a wonderful job and are to be commended other than the ones who never showed up."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in the seats. Very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Pilot kept us in the know given congestion at LGA. And kept us safe because of expected turbulence."
Cons: "I feel like the airline should know LGA is backed up since they flight mostly the same schedule daily. Flight AA2174 should be pushed to a later time so passengers don't have to sit on the tarmac."

Cons: "Airline never assigned me a seat. They just told me what sea to sit in when I was boarding. I was concerned I would be bumped since when checking the airline said it could not assign a seat."

Cons: "Long delay at departing airport due to no flight crew"

Pros: "It was a short hop over to New York, so that's the only positive thing I can say."
Cons: "The plane was tiny, seats uncomfortable. Had to be bused to the plane, only 1 bus provided and had to be packed like sardines. Overall, a terrible experience."

Pros: "The landing in Phoenix finally here!!"
Cons: "The 5 plus hour flight but had to endure to get to Phoenix!!"

Pros: "It got me home, and around the time I was originally supposed to arrive"
Cons: "It left late, without any explanation as to why. It's pretty pathetic that I was thankful that AA got me home at all, considering they almost left me stranded in the wrong city, and the only reason I wasn't was no thanks to AA and thanks to Kayak."

Pros: "Uneventful, reasonably timely, not overcrowded, cheerful and friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long, needless wait in the cold, crowded, standing room only shuttle bus"

Cons: "The changes of time and gates were disturbing."

Pros: "Smooth check in was quick as well as boarding"
Cons: "Delayed because 1st attendant was not available"

Pros: "Finally getting home safe and sound."
Cons: "It was close to an 8 hour layover for a 35 minutue flight. We almost made an earlier flight that supposedly had room for our luggage but not us. So when we finally got to Pittsburgh our luggage was just sitting at the terminal unattended. Hundreds of people were delayed or had cancelled flights and it wasn't due to weather or related conditions. It was lack of planes and what appeared to be double-booked flights."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Plane was old and space was tight."

Pros: "Short flight, quick boarding once aircraft arrived"
Cons: "Flight was late"

Pros: "I was able to leave Burlington before the storm."
Cons: "When you travel the friendly skies, it is a cattle call. Travel is just not fun via any of the airlines. My experience was decent and that is all that I can say."

Cons: "The flight attendant forgot to serve me."

Pros: "Flight attendant service was great."
Cons: "I'm tall and the seats are cramped."

Cons: "Never made it to destination"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Poor WiFi. Poor video. Very small seating"

Cons: "Extremely noisy inside the smaller jets. Can't hear anyone or anything."

Pros: "Entertainment, food, service, on-time landing (early!)"
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."

Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "We were forced to deplane in DC and instructed to go to the United customer service counter to arrange our missed connections in Frankfurt. After standing in line at the United counter for 2 hours, we were told to go to our gate to re-board our plane. we wasted all that time standing and all but 2 agents had left the counter to take a break. it was EXTREMELY STRESSFUL not knowing what would happen to our missed connections. when we reboarded WE still did not have connecting flights.Also, on the United flight to Frankfurt, I had a premium economy seat and it was HORRIFIC. the extra leg room did NOT make the seat more comfortable and I SUFFERED greatly because I am recovering from an injury. Upon arrival in Frankfurt, after a great deal of begging, I got a hotel room for the night and upgrad to economy premium for the flight from Frankfurt to Addis. that Lufthana flight was better because my seat reclined somewhat but still I had a great deal of pain throughout the flight and I would have preferred to have been upgraded to business so that I could lay flat to ease my physical pain. Overall, the experience was extremely STRESSFUL and painful and the only way, I feel that Lufthana can repair this situation is to give me a free upgrade to business on my flight home.to Miami"

Cons: "For a trans-Atlantic flight this was a very small plane with very tight seats. The bathrooms smelled throughout the plane. Many seat back TVs didrn't function."

Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and kept the flight interesting."
Cons: "The check in process did not allow us to select seats until we got to the airport so we had to sit separately."

Pros: "The United crew were extremely pleasant and helpful"

Pros: "Food was a bit better than I expected. Videos kept going out. Staff were great. Plane landed well!"

Pros: "that the plane landed in one piece"
Cons: "it was late 1.5 hours it badly was overbooked hand luggage hysteria lack of aircon while on the ground overall attitude of crew"

Cons: "The plane was old. Entertainment screen too small and no way to restart a show. No AC power sockets at chairs. I was sitting at back of the plane and at the time food came there was no choice - they ran out of food options. Also, the plane storage bins were too small to fit small bags."

Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."

Did not provide any help there. My baggage did not reach with me and they promised to deliver it with in next 6 hours and it turned out that they took more than 18 hours to deliver my baggage to my home. My entire day got wasted waiting for this baggage to reach me. Poor communication made me wait and watch the door every hour. I tried to reach and get some information on when that baggage would reach me but no body knows."

Cons: "Small cramped plan. Seats did not recline."

Cons: "Flight was canceled and announced at midnight"
