Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Why no service in first class??? Cost cutting measure?"
Cons: "American Airlines has to be the worst airlines there is. It never fails that they try I Cath someone and try to pretend that their carry-on bagIs too big. They have this tiny little frame no reasonable carry-on could possibly fit into. Over and over again I see people including myself and my traveling companion’s having to check their carry-on bag because their “too big” this is nonsense. These are standard size bags. It’s more than enough space on board the plane. In a way in which the gate check individuals handle this interaction is a palling you’re insulting demanding and don’t give you a chance to rearrange your luggage so I can go into their absurd dimensions"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "I'm a frequent flyer with AA; it's very dissapointing that I have missed my connections with AA about 60% of the time this year. I don't know what's going on with the airline, but it seems they are falling behind the curve in terms of punctuality. Seriously thinking about changing airlines."
Pros: "The crew looked tired and somewhat friendly. We were delayed about 45 mins and they really didn’t communicate much the Captain did. On the ground we had to wait 20mins for the jet bridge and the door to open and no one said anything. The plane was shut down and turned on again too."
Cons: "More communication with the passengers would have been a bit better !!"
Cons: "My bag was sent on an earlier flights and spend more than and hours looking for it once I landed ."
Pros: "MIA to EZE we got the priority seats and it was worth the extra expense."
Cons: "Honoring paid reservations. Our flight was cancelled and rescheduled 4 times within the last few days. Communication. No one emailed me or called me to give me options or to even tell me they were kicking me out"
Pros: "The seating and leg room was comfortable."
Cons: "Since my ticket was "basic" I was put in the last boarding group and given a middle seat; my mother was also in a middle seat. Once boarded I noticed everyone around me was separated from their families--to the point where a baby was transferred 3 times over my head between the parents!"
Cons: "We had a two hour delay causing me running through the London airport to make my flight only to sit in the airplane for an hour because someone decided at the last minute not to travel. In the end, my only two bags didn’t make it. So inconvenient."
Cons: "The wifi didn't work. No seatback everyone's screens, only a screen over there middle row of seats. Maybe update your 20 year old livery."
Pros: "The crew at the check in counter were very help and just outright awesome. Having missed my flight they were kind enough to find a seat for me on another flight. So I say Weldone to them"
Cons: "As I am tall the seats especially the middle seat was a nightmare espcially when people pullback their seats back. need more space to stretch your legs on long flights"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Negative leg room. If the seat next to me had not been vacant, my legs would have lost circulation."
Cons: "1 hour late leaving origination, late arrival at connection & missed flight, overnight hotel at my expense when there was no weather at any of the cities in my itinerary. Hours and several calls to reschedule. App didn't allow me to pick seat or check in on next day's flight. That flight was late (had to wait for flight attendants to arrive from another late flight. It should not take 24 hours to fly from Phoenix to Boston in good weather."
Pros: "video choices"
Cons: "seat width leg space aisle are way too narrow"
Pros: "The flight was on time, cabin crew looked nice and professional, AA stuff at the airport of departure was very helpful with complicated check-in procedure."
Cons: "It was a short flight (less than an hour) and only complimentary drinks were offered, no little snacks (like pretzels, peanuts or cookies)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "Old overhead monitors for movies. Audio did not work at my seat."
Cons: "The plane was so hot, by the time we landed everyone was literally dripping from sweat. It was so uncomfortable that it was cooler outside of the plane even though it was 83 degrees when we landed."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Felt very uncomfortable on that seat me and my girlfriend. We got delayed before taking off And our first flight from SF to Miami we got delayed an hour after landing before exiting the plane!"
Pros: "Extra space was amazing"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Plentiful wine. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Food. Pasta was un-eatable. Cutlery flimsy. Napkin like a kleenex."
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Outdated 757. No individual entertainment. Power restricted to premium seats and was intermittent when it worked."
Cons: "Didn't make it to Tulsa. Won't make it for almost 8 more hours. Shameful."
Pros: "Airbus was nice and had charging capability at each seat?"
Cons: "Missed flight"
Cons: "Flight connections time was not enough for mam with infant.we missed the flight should better set up that kind of big airport"
Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"
Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."
Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Zero Entertainment. Flight delayed around 30 minutes, which gave me a heartburn as we had to catch the next flight. No priority plus lounge near this gate in Toronto"
Pros: "Very pleasant cabin crew. Flight right on time."
Cons: "You overbooked the flight"
Pros: "Excellent staff and flight attendants."
Cons: "Coach seats were like cardboard. My back was killing me within 2 hrs... :("
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Boarded small plane too early Air conditioning did not work...sweated whole flight No beverage service seats too small for an adult, and I am only 5'-5""
Pros: "The crew was courteous and very nice."
Cons: "The aisles are too narrow. As passengers are boarding and you sit in the aisles you are constantly struck. FAA should investigate with the decreased aisle width and distance between the seats, can the evacuation be completed within required time, in an actual emergency. American Airlines is endangering the lives of passengers. And the cramped conditions are contributing to the hostile actions of some passengers. What does it take to do what is right?"
Cons: "No entertainment on board Wifi not working."
Cons: "Baggage took 1 hour after arrival1"
Pros: "The upgrade to main cabin extra was worth the cost. Extra leg room, entertainment options, and room to breathe when the passenger in cent leans all the way back made a long flight more than bearable. The crew handled themselves and us very well."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
Pros: "Very quick curbside check-in. TSA check went quickly and gate was easy to get to."
Cons: "Flying old dilapidated 767-300 on 10.5 hour overseas flight is not a good idea Crappy seats, no in-seat entertainment, non-working overhead lights on the first flight... AA in it's usual glory. Mediocre company at best."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "We sat behind a 3 year old child. Very loud screaming jumping. Parent did not have control over child. The stewardess did not seem bothered. The longest most miserable flight EVER!!!!"
Pros: "Like I said before the crews were on time. The seats were comfortable and big enough. Everyone on the crew were very nice and made sure we were informed of procedures."
Cons: "There is nothing I can say negative."
Cons: "Fue de lo peor, viaje a Bos a SAL , haciendo escala en NJ , los vuelos súper mega retrasados, pero el más retrasado fue el NJ a SAL , supuestamente iban. A compensar con alimentos pero lo único que dieron fue una galleta vencidas, y una bebida no más mal servicio, no lo recomiendo viajar en UNITED"
Pros: "Without asking, the crew arranged to have my partner and I sit next to each other. That was such a pleasant touch of service for our trip. Also, the connection was perfectly timed at Chicago flying to Bozeman."
Pros: "The crew was rude. Also made me check my carryon when there was plenty of overhead room."
Cons: "The time of the flight was super late. I wish we could have left earlier. All other aspects were fine."
Cons: "If the flight had left on time"
Pros: "Crew did a good job. In flight entertainment was great. Need a way to use my wireless headphones with the direct tv (maybe through the United app?)"
Cons: "Seats in First Class were not as comfortable as I would expect. Hardly any padding in the back or in the armrests. Didn’t care for the food on either flight. Can’t you just serve some good ol’ Meat and potatoes with gravy, a plain vegetable and a roll?"
Pros: "I only rated Good because the flight was not too crowded and I got 3 seats to myself. Your seats are tiny and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Food was not good, flavor wise"
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and the leg space is nonexistent."
Cons: "Did not seem to be able to control the movie, to restart, or FF or REWIND."
Pros: "On time , smooth ride"
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take the flight."
Cons: "They didn't get me to New York. Our original aircraft was stolen to use for another flight. So we needed to wait for another plane that wasn't due until 90 minutes after our scheduled departure. This second plane had maintainence issues. After 4 hours waiting I got on a Delta flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The entertainment system for an international flight was lacking compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Jet Plane"
Cons: "No entertainment. No charging point for personal device in today's age. Seats that can't get any smaller, yet, still does. Seats that barely recline and yet have to be brought upright during take-off and landing. Maybe common theme between airlines, but, it stands out. Salty pretzels probably the poorest choice for free handout snacks. No choice of course."
Pros: "Service was terrific."
Pros: "Got me from point A to B"
Cons: "Cabin was freezing, very skimpy on drinks, coffee maker didn't work. Ask volunteers to move to back of plane to balance out weight."
Cons: "Plane hot and crowded"
Pros: "Flight comfort and online crew were good and no complaints"
Cons: "Flight delayed boarding 31/2 hrs and then over an hour delayed on the ground before takeoff."
Pros: "The crew and captain were amazing dealing with us during a terrible, late night delay. They constantly kept us updated about what was happening and were constantly walking around to ensure all of our needs were met."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely horrible. Two bathrooms and the in-flight entertainment did not work as well as most reading lights. A door sensor wasn't working correctly which cost us another hour of waiting for a technician to come and repair/reset the sensor."
Pros: "Aguadilla airport is crazy at 2:00 am. I never really heard them call for me to get on the plane to Newark so if I wasn't really paying attention I might have missed my flight"
Cons: "It was late and getting there was even worse. I was told I wouldn't make my connecting flight in Newark on the way there so I had to go home and come back the next day. Of course it was weather related so you can't control that."
Pros: "Ir was good experíence"
Cons: "Guy next to me kept bumping in to me"
Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Boa 're ding good"
Cons: "Lights on in plane all time american keeps lights dim so people rest"
Cons: "It was delayed a day"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers -No leg room -Package on food said snack mix but it only contained pretzels"
Cons: "After I booked my round trip flight to Denver from New Orleans I discovered that my mom had surgery to remove her breast cancer on the day I was originally supposed to depart. I called to see if there was anything I could do to change my flight to the next day and received no help what so ever. They said it would cost $200 just from the start. I couldn't afford that, so I just bought a cheaper one way ticket for the next day, not knowing that if I didn't catch my first flight that my return flight would also be cancelled. When I called to see if I still had my return flight I was told no and one again told it would cost $200 to do anything about it. So in the end, I'm stuck in Denver and bought a round trip ticket for absolutely no reason."
Pros: "I liked the new, immaculately clean plane that appeared to have more leg room between seats, which also appeared to recline more than my recent United Flights. Other rows appeared to be quite comfortable. I don't like the only flight options into Aquadilla to be so late at night. There is enough of a demand into and out of this airport to have at least a few daytime flights."
Cons: "After having changed my seat and choosing the last row, I realized that those seats had been squashed into the remaining space in the cabin. It did not allow for as much leg room as other seats and being the last row, the seats did not incline. My own fault for selecting this row however, I wish it had been mentioned when I made the selection. Also, the entertainment was only available through an APP on one's Smart Phone. This assumes everyone has a smart phone, the correct plan and the knowledge to use said app. Too much reliance on technology when the "old way" worked just fine for more customers. The Crew was fantastic......very accommodating without being over bearing."
Pros: "Good service. Good communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Should be widerr."
Pros: "Nothing. The experience was terrible. 7 trips back and forth to SLO Irport to try to get home to Palm Springs. 3 days attempt. Cancelled and delayed."
Cons: "Didn't like anything."
Cons: "Support for all Android platforms needs to be updated."
Pros: "The crew on this segment was very nice. They seemed to go out of their way to make everyone happy."
Cons: "It was a painful wait to board the aircraft. The gate crew was running around like they didn't know what they were doing, and they wouldn't fill us in on when we would actually start boarding. We boarded about 30 minutes past the scheduled boarding time. Then once we landed, everyone waited for 30 minutes at the baggage carousel."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Had us planeside check our roller bags but had at least 4 overhead bins around us that ended up being empty. They then took a substantial amount of time to unload the plane side checked bags. I was toward the rear of the plane and still had to wait."
Pros: "Flight from sfo to london didnot have personal tvs & the main tv didnot work well. London to SFO there were personal tvs but mine didnot work at all. Th flight attendants could not fix it i guess. It kept freezing every movie i started. 10 hrs of flight was very boring."
Pros: "Overall flight was Okay. United has been my favorite airline since 1971. "Fly The Friendly Skies of United""
Cons: "Very tight seating My wife said it seamed as though the lavitory hadn't been cleaned in a month. I didn't use it though."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and quickly, (e.g. check in, baggage, seat and storage) Staff were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Crew members were not helpful."
Cons: "We got on board, waited 20 minutes. Capt said it was a bad reverser, and we were waiting on paperwork for 15 minutes. Long story short, they make us leave the plane after 2.5 hours. Then we wait in the airport for another 2.5 hours. I missed my connection and spent 10 hours in Chicago."
Pros: "Crew was honest. Provided ice water."
Cons: "Prop plane didn't have air conditioning (flight 4989) thank God it was only 45 minutes and FA provided ice water."
Pros: "Honestly nothing"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They don't give any food at all. There is no free entertainment."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and I received a lot of updates on my flight infor before my flight"
Cons: "Although I received a lot of flight info about my delayed flight I wouldn't receive it sometimes until right before the time changes. Also we were boarded and still sat on the plane and waited for almost an hour before leaving the Tarmac and received no reason as to why we're still sitting until over 40 minutes of waiting. Also the bathroom water smelled bad and it felt extra small."
Pros: "The crew was great - very responsive"
Cons: "It is just a long time to sit in very cramped space"
Pros: "That I finally got there a day later. I only had carry on bags, so they weren't lost."
Cons: "At OHare the gate agent sent me to the wrong gate and plane for my flight. I did not arrive Thursday at 8:30 pm as scheduled. Customer service put me on "red eye" to Dulles for the next flight to Charleston, without motel or meal vouchers. I couldnt sleep on the benches there due to asthma and diabetic issues. I arrived Friday 2:30 pm 17 hours late. Dulles overnight cleaning staff helped more than agents at OHare."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating during the flight"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours, with not much explanation"
Pros: "I had a blood coat on my leg 2 months before my flight and the pain and swelling sometimes were unbearable, United was extremely accommodating, kind and courteous from the check in all the way to helping me retrieve my luggage in a wheel chair and that alone ease my pain, not having to do any extra effort was a huge relief on my legs. Definitely booking again with United and Kayak"
Cons: "TSA were less than basic, making me go up and down twice trough two different metal detectors and a body scan machine, then asking me to put both my hands above my head while standing up in the body scanner, a guy in a wheel chair who could only stand with a cane, these guys are barbaric but that's not the airlines fault."
Pros: "Accommodating, T.v's, timely."
