Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Been non discriminatory"
Cons: "I can’t believe with all that’s going on American doesn’t care. The terminal was packed with people. Terminal B Charlotte airport. Packed!!!. I had no choice. In the future Jet Blue. I know it’s all about making money the flight was packed. Logan airport Delta every other set has a sticker don’t sit here"
Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"
Pros: "Direct flight Erie to Charlotte. Glad for that."
Cons: "Not sure why, assuming it’s the plane type, but first time in 35 years my ears continued to pop all the way up and ended up with ear ache."
Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."
Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
Pros: "Crew were very nice."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "Had to sit next to someone that was so big she had to put up the arm seat and sit on half my seat. Thank god I’m 110 but sitting next to the window made me very claustrophobic."
Pros: "crew made me feel guilty to change my paid for seat so a married couple could sit together and I was solo"
Cons: "choice of snacks or food"
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."
Cons: "Didn’t fly"
Pros: "Take offs were a few minutes late but we arrived on time at each destination due to savvy pilots and great tailwinds. Staff was in a good mood and so were the passengers, no Scrooge’s!"
Cons: "The only BBQ in Dallas Airport Terminal C is a chain spot....boooo!"
Pros: "Smooth boarding, polite & effective crew, functional aircraft, nice weather"
Pros: "On time . No significant delays cost of ticket low."
Cons: "Tiny plane with small seats never that comfortable."
Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Pros: "They got us there quickly."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived earlier than expected. Great job by the flight attendants as well! I thoroughly enjoyed my flight back home."
Pros: "Smooth and quick flight"
Cons: "Warm, no refreshments"
Pros: "Went without a hitch"
Cons: "The 24hr layover in Miami"
Pros: "Not overcrowded or over booked. Efficient boarding process. Smooth flight."
Pros: "The streaming entertainment was nice."
Cons: "The heat was on and even after complaining to the flight attendants, they couldn't change it. Many of us were so uncomfortable with the heat for a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Pros: "Terrible delay in plane on tarmac. Just nasty"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Cramped beyond belief. Can’t roll carry on bags through aisles. Seems they’re more narrow. Boarding seems something beyond common sense. On domestic flights I only fly Southwest unless a must do trip and they don’t fly there. Our trip over to Milan on British Airways was wonderful. Sorry the last leg was American Airlines.)"
Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""
Cons: "Tv was out the entire international flight. When I asked the flight attendant for help he said that "wasn't his job" and walked away. When I asked another attendant for help she said there wasnt anything she could do and that their "tv's suck". Rude crew, uncomfortable, cheap."
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Pros: "Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected."
Cons: "AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch or raise legs. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "The American Airways gate agent was very helpful fixing the problem that British Airways created. She went out of her way to get me booked on AA flights to catch my BA flight from London to Riyadh."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and the first available flight was 3 days later. BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work. The BA booking person seemed content that there was no way I could make it to Saudi prior to the end of the week. Fortunately, the AA agent was able to find a way for me to continue my trip on a later flight."
Pros: "Great flight, on time, seat upgrade"
Pros: "El ser una marca conocida"
Cons: "Tanto el vuelo de ida como de vuelta fueron cancelados ambos vuelos. Siendo el de regreso de una forma abusiva cancelando para el día siguiente sin considerar el pago mínimo de hotel y comidas. Sin considerar los gastos ocasionados por las pérdidas de reservas en hoteles."
Pros: "Fast check in, timely take off & arrival Excellent and friendly service"
Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"
Pros: "The crew on the flight were nice and helpful. Even though it was a short flight"
Pros: "As a bonus, I was bumped up to Business class on the way back because the flight was full. The lie-flat seat was amazing and food in Business really was "next level.""
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Quick boarding. No delays."
Cons: "Again flights attendants were a bit dry."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The flights were smooth and easy."
Cons: "Due to the crew being late, my second flight was delayed and hour and a half."
Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"
Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."
Pros: "My first plane from Ashevile to Charlotte was fine."
Cons: "This plane was a little "scarier" than the other but I believe that it was because it was such a small plane."
Cons: "I was so sick of waiting for the delay and remembering my horrible previous flight that I opted to meet my friend who lives in North Carolina and will be driving home to Richmond instead."
Pros: "The boarding process was good. Departed on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "No social distancing of passengers on the plane yet there are empty rows of seats."
Cons: "Direct tv sucks! Had to watch trailer 3 times before movie started. If switched to another movie it started part way. Flight attendants instead of one long announcement made three announcements few seconds between thus cutting in and out of movie."
Cons: "working bathroom and entertainment system"
Pros: "Good pilot"
Cons: "Snarky flight attendant. Plane was late."
Cons: "Horrible 4 hour delays and no ETA on take off time."
Cons: "I could've actually made it to savannah tonight but I've been stuck in two different customer service lines for over 3 hours"
Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "Seating is kind of cramped. More legroom would be appreciated."
Cons: "If I actually got to fly with United Airlines instead of having to purchase an additional ticket and fly with American Airlines."
Cons: "Wouldnt refund my ticket or change my flight. Fee for everything"
Pros: "The crew is nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a technical issue and then the plane was very cold for most of the flight. And they said my green-tagged carry on would be at the gate when I arrived in Richmond. But then we arrived and they put it at baggage claim instead where we had to wait 20 minutes for it. Too many things were not comfortable or convenient on this particular flight."
Cons: "Crew was not available, that caused a delay. Bags were not loaded, that caused another delay. Gate was not available upon arrival, that caused yet another delay."
Cons: "My flight was missed due to being in TSA and the flight leaving 7 minutes early without my knowledge. Had to reschedule to a later flight and totally messed up my plans"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours coming into Denver due to an oil leak they fixed at the last airport. Turned out the leak wasn't fixed. Took an hour to get a mechanic to look at it and then they cancelled the flight. United's partner had no other planes in Denver so we had to sleep there after sitting in the airport for almost 4 hours."
Cons: "No TV Screens, everything needs to be purchased on board."
Pros: "I finally made it"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late, the gate agent was rude, the Flight Attendant was so large that he hit my arm every time he passed by, no Entertainment/Internet service. EVERY one of my United flights has been late in the recent past."
Cons: "Flight left 8 hours late because they couldn’t find a tire."
Pros: "Food was way better than I expected."
Cons: "No air conditioning... the plane was hot"
Cons: "cushion on the seats are a bit dead. I wish they notified us of gate changes at O'Hare."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of the airline"
Pros: "Flight crew on the plane were friendly and engaging, and the flight itself went smoothly."
Cons: "Gate agent made a brief and vague statement that the flight would be delayed and offered no updates for about an hour and a half until the very minute boarding was starting. The United app and website never updated to reflect the delay, which made it difficult to coordinate pickup with family in Chicago."
Pros: "The flight attendant's positive energy and the speed/smoothness of the flight"
Cons: "Being 6'6" on a super small plane is never too much fun"
Pros: "Food for purchase"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "That they lost my bags"
Pros: "The seats on this United flight were far more comfortable than the longer Seattle-Chicago hop. We had more legroom, too."
Cons: "Kept delying the flight for a total of 5hours, and then sat on the runway for 1 hour before take off. Was the worst experience of flying by far. Will definitely go back to delta or American as they are more informative and nicer"
Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."
Pros: "Fell asleep right as the plane took off and was not disturbed by anybody for the duration of the flight. As a result I do not know whether food and drinks were served and their quality."
Cons: "Bag was lost Inefficient check in employee Poorly trained TSA employees Long wait before take off Very uncomfortable and crammed seat"
Cons: "Just before announcements to board, the gate agent advised the plane was being checked out / aircraft maintenance. The creeping delay commenced: 20 minutes, then 15 minutes more, then 30 minutes more, etc... with very little communication about when what going on. Finally, we were advised of a gate change and new aircraft. We landed 93 minutes late. Problems happen but keep customers informed!"
Pros: "Crew very professional; friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable; not much room to move"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "The over all experience"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."
Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."
Pros: "They were very understanding organization. The flight kept changing . It was like that coming and going"
Cons: "They were very un organization the flight was changed both coming and going it messed my plans up on going and coming and no one cared."
Cons: "The short time between connecting flights"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Staff friendly and helpful. Cabin was clean"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."
Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."
Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."
Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."
Pros: "The crew were so friendly and professional. They looked like they were genuinely enjoying their job. The crew were London based on both of my journeys and both crews were excellent. Thank you United Airlines for making my flight an enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"
Cons: "They changed our gate from one end of the terminal to another right at the time of boarding and made no announcements. We all found out by text or had to be told by other passengers."
Pros: "personal service"
Cons: "Nothing was fine"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."
Cons: "I got stuck with a 2 hours delay flying into Dallas and then another 2 hours delay flying back to Newark. Worst experience ever with United Airlines. Couldn't even get a complimentary of any sort and missed 2 events which was very disappointing."
