Cons: "I wish Quatar had a direct flight between Chicago and Indian cities such as Delhi and Mumbai. I can understand that Doha is their hub, but such a flights would be really good for me as I always want to reduce my layovers.

Pros: "It was nice service and hospitality"
Cons: "No internet"
Pros: "I miss the flight beacous of the gate agent the don't now what the doing I was coming from Washington to Dubai I just need to transfer my bags to this flight and the say ohh we canot do that it was unprofessional people I'm sorry so I book another flight from Dubai to Baghdad"

Cons: "Since my flight was connecting from London to New York we barely had a break even though we were suppose to have a 2.5 hour layover. As soon as we got off our first plane we were directed to American Airline security where they questioned me about my trip and what I did in Spain. Then I was directed to TSA where it took a long time to get through the lines. I got to my gate an hour before take off and they were already boarding. I didn't have a moment to take a bathroom break or grab a drink/snack. But again, this experience was not all that bad because all the positive notes listed above."
Cons: "Didnt like the food or the movie selections"
Cons: "They closed the counter too early , missed flight Did mot accommodate although I was there 50 minites prior to the flight"
Pros: "They brought lots of water"

Pros: "Cerainly boarding is easy and the seats are quite comfort in business class."
Cons: "the service, considering this was the highest level of service on these flights was less than I would have expected"
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Pros: "The food and drink were abundant and served at a decent pace. The boarding seemed quick and I was able to get to my seat quickly."
Cons: "I had a 2 hour layover to switch from my BA flight to my American Airlines flight in Heathrow, but since I, and every other AA passenger had to wait in line to reprint my boarding pass to an AA boarding pass after we had taken the bus to the terminal, I waited about 45 minutes in that line. Then we had to go through security again. By the time I made it to my gate the flight said it was "closing." We took off about 15 minutes after that. The "hot box" snack had goat cheese and I'm not a fan."
Pros: "The smooth flight"
Cons: "The smell in the plane"
Pros: "Pasta was good."
Cons: "The touch screen did NOT work most of the time.Not able to watch GPS or select movie..."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, smooth flying, arrived on time"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment could have been more user friendly"
Pros: "More options for food like rice chicken or rice beef"
Cons: "Pls have decent meal plans and the seats were very uncomfortable American Airlines need improvement in all areas"
Pros: "Boarding in London was smooth, we arrived early. New plane, good seats for extra $$."
Cons: "Food could be better, even on an international flight. Crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The entertainment and food on the flight were excellent and the crew were kind and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't much legroom in the economy section. Another problem - which is probably related to Heathrow airport and outside of the crew's control - was that the staff at the airport rushed us tremendously during boarding, saying that the flight would close half an hour in advance. I had never seen boarding close that early and it was very frustrating, because the boarding then took a very long time, since they searched us for no reason, and our flight ended up taking off 30 minutes late! As passengers, we felt very rushed, it seems, for no reason."
Cons: "Flight connection was too close. Delays in leaving Nairobi made us almost miss this flight"
Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."
Pros: "Comfort in business class. Service was excellent."
Cons: "2nd meal choices were very limited."
Cons: "Disappointed with the "Hot Box" (Bean Burrito type) cold & never heated up but still served...unedible. Real shame - food just wasted...unnecessary and just adds to costs of flights at end of day :-/ Customs & Gate in Clt delay could have been handled better. Continuously told us we were deplaning and then silence...several times...very frustrating after 9 hour flight. Better communication and organization in customs would be appreciated Otherwise, crew was very polite and overall good job"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable with good food and movie options."
Cons: "Being in the last row, the deaf didn't recline much and I had difficulty sleeping. Also, I was not informed on the ticket that this particular international flight only allowed one free checked bag, not two, ad got stuck with a $100 extra baggage fee."
Cons: "Poor communication Delays -3 hrs"
Cons: "I despise Heathrow. I'll only go there or use an airline there as a last resort."
Pros: "The service was super"
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and apologetic for the chronic problems with the entertainment system. The pilot gave us a smooth flight and landing, and was very conscientious about turbulence prevention and safety."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was spotty. Some customers had monitors that worked, some did not. A woman with a two-year old had one of the malfunctioning monitors and was forced to entertain her child for nine hours without tv, movies or music. Similarly, on our flight over to London 10 days earlier, my husband and I were 2 of more than 30 passengers whose monitors never worked and we were forced to fly for 7 hours in the dark on an overnight flight staring at the backs of seats. It was miserable. The cabin crew told passengers they had begged the airline for years to replace the system but the airline refuses. Will not fly American Airlines transatlantic again."
Pros: "- Departure and arrival ahead of schedule - Great entertainment system and choices"
Cons: "- Rather uncomfortable seats and minimal leg room for a 5'11'' / 180 lbs passenger - Flight attendants were superficial (continuously overlooked / ignored me on the service cycles), I was seated on the window."
Pros: "The seats on the plane were well covered and leather like that was helpful"
Cons: "The food was horrendous ant the staff unprepared for service . They don't want to be service oriented they want to be your equal they are two familiar and on the edge of rude."
Pros: "flight was on time. Very friendly attendants. Plane was only 1 month old and was absolutely amazing. The personal entertainment system made a 9 hour flight actually enjoyable! Loved the recline of the seats!"
Cons: "healthier options for food."
Pros: "Service and smooth flight."
Cons: "I bought two exit seats and they were not given to me."
Pros: "Very pleasant cabin crew. Flight right on time."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient . Liked the option to upgrade to priority boarding, however."
Cons: "Always hard to hear what group is boarding due to poor quality of microphone at desk. Visual reader board would help."
Pros: "1. Heathrow - transit very professional 2. Heathrow - Philly - flight AA 734 was excellent. 3. I like the AA concept of making fliers pay for hard drinks."
Pros: "Crew was great. Food was so so as usual."
Pros: "Pampered by flight crew !!!"
Pros: "The American Airlines plane was very clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and attentive at all times. I enjoyed the food served and the selection of movies offered inflight was excellent. I would definitely travel with American again."
Cons: "I wish the vegetarian meal was a little better thought out! It tasted a bit like hospital food."
Pros: "On time dep/ arrival"
Cons: "Incompetente of Ground agent. Uninterested flight attendants in business class. Luckily it was a n In revenue ticket. Would never pay for that level of service."
Pros: "Flight attendets were great, friendly, helpful, made me feel very welcoming, it made such a great experience. Thank you."
Pros: "Great flight, Fantastic landing in Charlotte. l was pleased with everything on flight home."
Cons: "My 11am flight had engine problems, so at 1pm they asked if anyone wanted to leave and take the 2pm flight to Charlotte. About 30 people said yes, as I did too. After running across Heathrow to make flight, we got on plane and Waited....seems after running a Mile across the airport, they Decided to HOLD the Flight and have everyone from 11am flight take the 2pm flight to Charlotte. All the baggage had to be taken from 11am flight and brought to 2pm flight. Delay for take off was almost 2 HOURS!!! Instead of arriving in Charlotte at 3pm, we were Leaving at that time!!! Didn't get to Charlotte until almost 9pm. NO ONE on Flight from 11am was Happy about this."
Pros: "I fell asleep and missed dinner. When I woke up one of the stuff came up to me and asked me if I would like to eat something and went especially for me and got me the the dinner portion. Although we had a delay I was informed promptly and the staff apologized for my inconvenience. The airline took responsibility and did not blame the delay on other factors. Thanks for being honest"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "American Airlines was amazing fed you a good meal fun crew good entertainment had 3 glasses of wine desert , and hot biscuits and coffee before landing was a great flight."
Pros: "Great staff and leg room/comfort. Food, drinks and entertainment was superb! Comfortable Boeing 787."
Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Pros: "Movies and food"
Cons: "I went and picked up my luggage in Dallas and an AA rep ensured me my luggage was going to El Paso in my flight ... Not true"
Pros: "Awesome crew. Comfortable seats. Great entertainment options. Good food."

Cons: "Entertainment screen broken."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and informative"
Cons: "It felt a bit cramped, but overall nice seats and movie screens"
Pros: "Seat configurations"
Cons: "Movies inflight entertainment outdated"
Pros: "Check-in was outstanding."
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and had an exit row for more room"
Cons: "A better charging port for the seats. Both of ours did not work"
Pros: "Thank you for the number of refreshments including drinks and a snack. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "The seat was so hard to get comfortable in. I’m only 5’9” but I kept getting bumped into as I was sitting in the aisle seat. Also my seat 23C’s headphone jack is broken - I had to play around with my headphone cable input to get enough contact to hear everything."
Pros: "Bert helpful crew onboard."
Cons: "Delayed start (75 minutes), stressful if I would miss my connection."
Pros: "It has Directv"
Cons: "The landing was terrible, the airplane bounced very high as soon as it touched the ground"
Pros: "united is united"
Pros: "Nice flight but a little tight."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and my seat was roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a ground stop. That was not the annoying part. At Ronald Reagan airport we were at gate 12, flight changed to gate 16 and then changed back to gate 12. A bit confusing."
Pros: "Delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "On time departure and arrivial"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Flight was good, nothing stood out as good or bad. It just seems like a very tight space (I'm 5'3 and less than 150 lbs)."
Cons: "Going through TSA in Newark Airport was HORRENDOUS. A TSA agent grabbed my things out of my hand and threw it on the belt without any consent from me. I was still unpacking my carry on, to abide to the rules and no she just wouldn't have it and was very rude."
Pros: "The time between boarding and departure was limited."
Cons: "It was hot and the pilot sped up through turbulence to land on time. The wind was too rough to fly fast through, I almost needed the "barf bag"."
Pros: "great comfortable seats,great food section,friendly staff"
Pros: "Legroom coffee and snacks"
Pros: "Crew were helpful. They got the plane boarded early for an early takeoff. It was easy getting from landing gate to my next takeoff gate."
Cons: "The boarding was a little quicker and more controlled."
Pros: "Plane arrived early and deplaned early. Crew pushed to serve drinks even though there were bumpy stretches."
Cons: "In boarding, putting groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line works poorly. The size limits on carry-on bags and personal items was smaller than other airlines, unnecessarily so for the latter given the size of the space under the seat in front. United is inconveniencing customers without any justification."
Pros: "Captain came out and talked with us"
Cons: "Delay seemed very avoidable."
Pros: "Pilots had great skill and provided a very comfortable flight despite bad weather. Exceptionally smooth take off. The newer planes being introduced are very nice, too."
Cons: "I didn't realize how amazing the United Airlines app was. Shows all kinds of cool info on your flight and free media. I am now shocked st how ignorant people are to write complaints regarding delays due to weather. It's for your safety. Appreciate technology and respect Mother Nature fools."
Cons: "Left an hour late."
Cons: "Continuously moving departure time back."
Pros: "In general crew is awsome, the things I didn't like are from the airlines administration."
Cons: "First of all I have to pay for my first bag even If it's an international flight?!?! It was a one and a half hour flight just to cross the border, the ticket cost over $300 and still I get charged for my first suitcase... Second of all, SINCE WHEN PEOPLE HAVE TO PAY TAXES JUST TO BRING THEIR BABY IN THE LAP?!?! C'mon!!!! And the worst, you don't let people now about this so at least we can pay it in advanced since we don't have a choice, but it is anoying that someone leave USA without paying extra just to bring your baby with you and then flying in the same aerline you are not aware you have to pay for him without notice and been inform in advanced. Third and last ... I NEVER GOT MY BOARDING PASS TO PRINT AT HOME by email, either any information or update about my flight...."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled which I accept, but couldn't get me on another flight for 24 hours???? (When at least 15 flights, some with empty seats, went to Chicago in that time!!!). That's bull United."
Pros: "Free movies. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "Really friendly staff, communicative, helpful. Gave good directions. Plenty of leg room on flight."
Cons: "Beyond the control of United, but LAX is a nightmare of an airport. Traffic control caused delays, airport staff more of a hindrance than helpful. Border control mumbling and barking orders at people like they're cattle. Not the best way to welcome tourists, but at least United Airlines crew made up for it with their smiles."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment , no reading material , seat uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight from mke to Chicago was delayed so long I missed my connecting flight to charlotte. U had to spend the night in ohare airport. Very unhappy with United airlines."
Cons: "No air plane was hot, landing took two attempts second seamed difficult and a little scary"
Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."
Cons: "My flight was delay and they change gate like 3 times and when it was boarding time they didn't announce that they were already boarding then when we landed in Chicago it took a long time for the luggage to come out."
Pros: "Too many delays to be able to take the flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and had to fend for ourselves to get to boston. Ended up getting to boston at 12:30 am when I was supposed to get there at 1 pm. Will try and get a voucher for this awful trip."
Pros: "The flight crew was very professional. Both of my flights departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"
Cons: "Long delay"
Cons: "first Flight too late Misses connection flight. Was at gate 10 min. before departure, but they did not open the door again lost my luggage"
Pros: "Comfortable seats,, easy luggage bins, attentive crew."
Cons: "Wi-fi didn't work. Direct TV was expensive"
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 1.5 hours which was not nice and it was a six hour flight and only could receive pretzels without paying for food."
Cons: "Bad snacks. Need biscotti"
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant and professional. The flight was safe. The chicken curry meal was small but delicious, and the Belgian chocolate truffle ice cream fantastic."
Cons: "Very tight cramped seating;"
Pros: "First time flying in many years. United Staff very helpful and were helpful when I had questions."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Had to wait 30 minutes to speak to United service rep to rebook to Boston. No other Manchester flights. Forced to check carry ons. There were 10 terminals for service reps and only five reps. Line was very long and reps were in no hurry to assist. Not a pleasant experience. They should pay us a cancellation fee like they charge us when we cancel. Incurred additional expense getting to Manchester, NH. Not happy with United."
Cons: "The flight was late, then the actions of United personnel in Newark caused me to miss my connection. I would have made the flight except they would not recheck my bag after customs, forcing me into an unmoving "customer service" line until it was too late to get to the gate. No one from United was apologetic, friendly, or helpful; all effort to find a new flight home was up to me. To top it off my baggage took a different flight to a different airport than me."
Pros: "Couldn't check in on line or at the kiosks with Lufthanse. At airport, sent to SAS desk, and after a 1 hour wait in line, sent to United desk -- that was the airline Lufhanse assigned us to (months in advance, based on flight times) but never to us about the switch. United desk was about to close and we nearly missed the flight -- seat assignments made at the last minute at the gait. We'll try to to avoid air travel in the future. Just too hairy and full of uncertainties and frustrations. Only funny part was the sign at SAS checkin warning against assaulting the agents -- must happen a lot."
Pros: "The fast boarding and arriving ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Receiving a half can of soda. Not good for a grown man"
Pros: "The flight crew were really wonderful. The flight was also very smooth."
Cons: "The food was unusually bad. The Lufthansa food from NYC to Göteborg was far, far better. The movie selection on the United flight also could have been better."
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of the flight. we arrived faster than expected."
Cons: "there was an open seat next to my boyfriend and i, we thought we would have a little extra space on the flight since the seat wasn't taken. but the flight attended moves a passenger next to us without notifying us prior or even asking if it's okay, or ask that we scoot down so that we can at least have the window seat. would've been nice to have the window to lean on.. we felt like she could have said something to us. she was very rude."
Pros: "The stewardess was personable. The staff at the United Club reception desk, helped with a seating problem on my return trip."
Cons: "The climate of both planes was not great. It may have to do with the age of the plane."
Cons: "This is an international flight from San Francisco to Manila. Because United has a policy of "meals for purchase" on domestic flights, the Sfo-Hnl and Hnl-Guam legs did not serve meals. Only the Guam-Mnl portion had dinner. The planes on each leg were cramped and old. Seats were old. No in-flight entertainment unless you rented a tablet. The fare cost around $720 which was not really a bargain since other international airlines like China Airlines and Ana were offering fares in the same ballpark fare. I made a mistake booking this flight and by the time I realized it, it was too late. I will never fly UA on international flights if there are other options. Asian airlines have newer planes with more legroom; customer service is better;and in flight entertainment and food offered. I intend to post a blog on travel sites "buyer beware.""
