Pros: "The pilot, crew, etc. was all good. Boarding was great, as was deplaning. There was a lot of communication."
Cons: "I'm a tall woman and I was never more cramped. I think in a long flight such as this 2.5+ hours, they should not be using American Eagle jets. They are so tiny and my neighbor and I were practically on each other's laps."
Cons: "When you buy basic economy they put you in zone 9 for boarding. When i checked in online, they didnt even give me and my wife seats together."
Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."
Cons: "After booking about 6 months ago we got seated inBACK ROW against the wall. Couldn’t seat recline over 3 inches and right next to bathroom. Why can’t you give these seats to passengers that fly STANDBY"
Cons: "The flight comfort was very bad. The plane was extremely warm and people we beginning to feel bad. Several mentioned it and asked multiple times to have the the cabin air conditioning turned down"
Cons: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"
Pros: "Right on time"

Cons: "USB plug didn't work. Could not charge phone. Touch screen on TV didn't work well."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was excellent."
Cons: "For the fourth flight in a row with American the flight was late. I guess you don’t want to be in a hurry with this airline and have a long layover if you are connecting."
Pros: "Flight Attendants were excellent. Especially good was the senior FA who was seen training the junior ones who were on their maiden flight. The breakfast omelet with turkey sausage was about as good as they get."
Cons: "Nearly two hour delay due to fog in SFO. Recommend AA reroute into OAK where the fog is not so bad and the airport has a way better arrival on time rate than SFO. The drive into San Francisco is about the same time from OAK as it is from SFO."
Pros: "Very attentive.. good service.."
Cons: "Seats to tight.."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Thank you. I get to see my family."
Pros: "Quietness of the flight and easy boarding entertainment was good"

Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Cons: "Meals were minimal. Entertainment system is archaic. Seats tight and narrow and hard."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent"
Pros: "Food was okay. Luckily plenty of wine to get through 8 hours on this horrible plane."
Cons: "No individual video screens. Also our audio did not work ( true of most of one side of plane) so we could not even watch movie on the TINY overhead screen. Reading lights also did not work. We had no options to pass the time for an eight hour flight. The crew was unconcerned about the problem. They seemed grumpy!! This plane should not be used for long haul flights."
Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "It felt like flying low cost, no entertainment, they had screens in the center but I couldn’t see it cause I was sitting by the window, and no choice of what to watch."
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "I liked the ease of the gate for the airplane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The airline did not offer a complimentary headphones, and failr sure the wifi was not even working. Also was not that big of a fan with the extra long layover. Was not a fan of the extra time in the holding pattern above Indianapolis, nor the extra time 150 feet from the gate after we landed."
Pros: "Flight was straightforward and crew were pleasant."
Cons: "The boarding process was not so good. It was a busy flight and they needed to put luggage underneath asking for volunteer, then after a certain point it was mandatory. I completely appreciate the need for it to happen, but it turned into caos. People everywhere stood waiting. My suggestion would be to have people who need to check baggage stand off to the side and continue boarding those who are ready to go."
Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Cons: "Overhead compartments full. Had to check carry-ons to final destination before boarding. Groups 3 and 4 and most of Group 2 had to check their carry-ons due to AA allowing more than 2 carry on items per person and oversize carry on items for Groups 1, and all the Advantage classes called."
Pros: "I loved how there were screens to pass the time with. I watched a movie the whole way back home and it really made the ride smooth and enjoyable. There were some great movie selections."
Cons: "I had trouble choosing one movie. Too many good movies."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Cons: "Flight is really late causing missed connection"
Pros: "Over all wonderful!"
Cons: "Movies broken has to change seat"
Pros: "Great crew of airplane staff"
Pros: "Todo muy bueno"
Pros: "Once we got around to actually boarding and being on the plane, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the plane and company were. Every experience up to that point had led me to believe we were on the budget airline with the delays and the way everything was handled (getting us into the bus to go to the plane, waiting 15 minutes, getting us off to wait in lobby 40 minutes, boarding again)."
Cons: "Lots of delay with little explanation. All in all, it was nearly 3 hours later by the time we took off for an otherwise very short flight."
Pros: "We made it there"
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for 3 hours and nothing to drink and no one told you for 2 hours what was going on. Then to get to São Paulo stood in line because I was at NYC airport for 14 hours. So I missed the other flights. And the help I got was worthless."
Cons: "Delayed!!! Waited and waited"
Pros: "Re-routed to Phx; inflight Phx was closed. Diverted to Tucson. Only jets on the ramp were American. Seems if you close an airport there would be a lot more than 4 jets and different airlines. Landed at 11pm; still on the aircraft at 130am"
Cons: "Let's see pretty much the whole experience"
Pros: "Cool TV roomy seats , friendly staff."
Cons: "United needs stricter rules about boarding and de-boarding during Covid. They lag behind other airlines. De-boarding especially needs to be controlled. Very disappointed. Also, after row 21 there are no screens and you have to use your own device. Then provide outlets! Jeeze that's ridiculous. You need to have plugs if you have to use your own device during the flight!"
Pros: "We got to our destination 20mins early. And this is not the first time this has happened with United Airlines"
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The funny crew"
Cons: "Softer landing"
Cons: "There was no lunch"
Pros: "Always love the Stroopwaffel snacks! Flight attendant was very friendly and worked to help passengers who had short layovers get off the plane first."
Pros: "Never got on flight."
Cons: "No delays and compensation for inconvenience. Paid extra for seat upgrade which I never sat in."
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"
Pros: "Great price — easy flight. Had an entire row to myself, so I could stretch out."
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."
Pros: "The captain was wonderful"
Cons: "The crew were jerks"
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Pros: "Lot of space nice flight professional crews"
Pros: "Fast and works really well."
Cons: "On board snacks could be better."
Pros: "Crew was helpful, courteous and kind!"
Cons: "Gate area didn’t have enough seats, plane delayed.... once got on had to buy entertainment unless you wanted to watch commercials on loop."
Pros: "Comfort was good"
Cons: "Food appeared stale at times Drinks like fruit juices were given in small amounts like a quarter cup by stewardess Appears that it was being rationed Choice and scope of movies were poor and narrow"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "My dear was extremely uncomfortable"
Pros: "The staff was amazing made you feel really confident!"
Cons: "Boarding was horrific I paid for insurance my seat was in the middle of 2 HUGE guys and I'm 6'4...I thought my insurance would give me some kind of courtesy boarding/seating!"
Cons: "Our home was damaged, and we were without power for 6 days due to Hurricane Irma. We called the airlines repeatedly in an effort to cancel the ticket before the flight. They refused to cancel the tickets. Heartless"
Pros: "Better than I expected, given the bad publicity of late"
Cons: "My aisle seat has miniscule foot room"
Pros: "The staff & attendants were friendly & professional. The new United terminal is a very pleasant experience"
Pros: "I was able to make my flight."
Cons: "Crew were not friendly or helpful while boarding."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely filthy. The window was had a coating a head grease and dirt. It was disgusting."
Cons: "Flight attendant on first flight rude overall to all passengers, second flight they were good. Not one complimentary television station."
Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."
Pros: "Thank you for a job well done!"
Pros: "I had left my laptop at security and the woman at the on board desk (wish i knew her name) changed my flight to go on a later flight to West Palm Beach instead so I could get my laptop and continue on my way to Florida. She didn't even charge me anything extra! The West Palm Flight wasn't full and I was able to get closer to my destination going to West Palm Florida. The flight was smooth and the snacks were great too!"
Pros: "On time!"
Pros: "Boarding at the Midland airport was a breeze. Small airport, small plane, quick and easy boarding. Good plane - new Embraer jet. Enough room in economy even without Economy Plus. Good amount of time for a flight - not overly long. Friendly crew, standard service."
Pros: "The crew was nice to our one year old. And because it wasn't a full flight we were able to give him a seat which saved us!"
Cons: "We're healthy vegans and the snacks aren't friendly for us at all. We brought our own but to have options would have been nice."
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Pros: "I appreciate that United hasn't gotten greedy with baggage charges and has kept their seating comfortable. Last Frontier flight was RIDICULOUS!!"

Pros: "I got all my steps I while waited. Was rebooked on an American airplane for my connection on Chicago"
Cons: "Over a 3 hr delay in leaving Flont"
Pros: "The crew, friendly."
Cons: "We left about 15-20 mins late. Full flight, no room to stretch. The form was given almost at the end of the flight with not enough time to fill it out. No pens were offered."
Pros: "While waiting for the flight the agent kept us informed of the status by use of a speaker - said plane just landed and once passengers get off they will get us on board - he also took control and told people that wanted to be first in line to get on board to step aside and clear the way for passengers to get off the plane - pilot let us know we would land around 25 minutes early in Chicago so we were informed - then he explained why we had to sit and wait for a gate at O'hara"
Cons: "I didn't like that I couldn't take my rolling luggage with me cause it was a small plane and there wasn't the overhead room - then I had to wait afterwards around 15 minutes to get my luggage but the price for the flight was low and they were organized in how it was handled -"
Pros: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Cons: "We were definitely on an older plane. It didn't seem like a plane usually used for international based on the chair back pocket but I don't know. I'm sure it will be retired soon."
Cons: "No in flight movie!!!"
Pros: "Even though it was a long miserable flight with no entertainment at least the crew attempted to move me to another seat the plane was full so it was either stay where I was or go to a middle seat"
Cons: "Maintenance should be done especially on minor things like headphone jacks on Long flights passengers pay for those upgrades pretty frustrating when they do not work"

Pros: "The O'Hare bathrooms, which I shaved in? Everything else about the flights and the airports were awful, like of course"
Cons: "The turbulence"
