Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The plane was completely packed despite the COVID pandemic. A stranger sat next to me on the plane (distance of about 6 inches, not 6 feet). What social distancing? And yet they conveniently said no food/drink beverage for safety reasons. Good way for the airline to save a few bucks. Other airlines (like JetBlue) block out adjacent sears and give snacks in individual bags but this... I flew several times since the pandemic began and this was by far the worst. What a joke of an airline. Never flying them again"
Pros: "We appreciated being upgraded to first class using my segments."
Cons: "For a 2 1/2 hour flight in first class all we got was our pick from a basket of chips. Horrible!"
Pros: "Great stewardesses"
Pros: "The crew was friendly indeed."
Cons: "I was really surprised that there was a gate change that made the flight depart from a whole different part of the airport. I was sitting right there and didn't notice it but thankfully I had enough time to get to the different gate."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Waiting to board took almost 2 hours ! We were delayed so many times and sat on the plane for an hour after boarding. I was supposed to land at 6:55 and didn’t land til 9:30 and I was late for work due to poor planning. The pilot even admitted in the announcement that there was a crew problem and maintence problem. I was not happy"
Pros: "I liked how convenient and smooth everything was, from the price of my plane ticket to the pick-up and drop-off of my rental vehicle. Also, the text notifications I received upon landing that informed me how much time I had I had between flights & where to go!"

Cons: "On both segments of the trip American changed my seat which I. I’d not realize until boarding. Way to late to protest. You pay for preferred seating but then get bumped to a lousy seat with no explanation. Likely because I was a single traveler and an American employee wanted my seat. Better not happen on the return flight"
Cons: "It is clearly the policy or American Airlines to discriminate against passengers based on their class of flight"
Pros: "Arriving in SFO for Christmas"
Cons: "Gate changed 4 times...late boarding and even later departure 2 hours. Put us on a small plane and then do maintenance. not cool."

They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late. No big deal. Once on, however, they made us deboard because they forgot to do a security check. Oops. Flight attendants made the experience much better -- funny, enthusiastic, hard-working."

Cons: "gate assignment took too long"

Pros: "Crew was great, took off and landed early."
Cons: "Plane was very dated, food service was aweful..... bag of chips in first class."
Pros: "The most memorable part of our trip was a completely rude flight attendant! She asked my friend a question while she had her headphones on and when my friend said "excuse me", the flight attendant repeated herself in an extraordinarily snotty condescending manner that was completely uncalled for!"
Cons: "The worst experience I ever had in thirty years of flying. I missed my flight because even though I got to LAX two hours before the flight, I had to wait on the baggage check for two and a half hours. The attendants were texting and talking and not servicing the passengers. When I told American attendants and supervisors that I was going to miss my flight unless they got me through they were clueless and didn't care about me or any of the passengers. The entire American staff were the most disorganized and careless flight personnel I have ever seen. Them they put me on a standby flight, where I was number eight and five minutes later was number eighteen, so I missed that, too. My wife is one of the top Public Relations people in Los Angeles and we both have tweeted and posted on social media extensively about this horrendous experience. I require a full refund from American Airlines for my airfare, and if I don't receive it from you will take you to court. --Eric Red"
Cons: "Not very helpful in rebooking"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "I. Did not take this flight had a family emergency had to get home right away"
Pros: "Boarded on time and was easy"

Cons: "The crew was rude and were just sassy."
Cons: "Didn't ask for any food so can't rate that or entertainment"
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "Everyone that worked for AA was so friendly and nice. My flight was denied for about 3 hours and I arrived in Miami so late that I lost a day if vacation. I called AA to tell them and was told I could have been compensated for the trouble but I had to call the same day as flight (mind you I landed in Miami at almost 9pm and was too tired to call them.) so I lost any compensation."
Pros: "everything was polite with a lot of courtesy service was given excellence I would recommend to everyone at all times everything was clean too"
Pros: "Best airline ever"
Pros: "The cue was great. Did not try the food! Overall I had a ver good experience. The seats on the airline needed more leg and seer room . The space was uncomfortable. And I am not a fat person"
Cons: "I guess the same! The crue was very nice and helpful! It's the space that was shared with the other person that was painful"
Pros: "The seats had head rests"
Cons: "Rude staff, flight was delayed. No food or drink service."
Cons: "Tight space"
Cons: "Plane was cold! But better than hot!"
Pros: "It was the worst trip I have ever taken. Delayed 2 hours due to air traffic control problems, then they landed us in Baltimore and decided we were gonna take buses to Newark. They put us back on the plane and drove around the runway for 2 more hours until I finally had a panic attack. I got off. Then they pulled everyone off and 3 busses took us to NJ, arrival at 4 a.m....HORRIBLE crew had timed out, horrible stewards served up water in cups and were yelling at people to sit saying we were NOT getting off the plane."
Cons: "UNITED AIR"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "It was just fine."
Pros: "We loved the small terminal at Sky Harbor, with the cute little discounted parking lot, no more that 100 feet away. We loved the location of Avis Rental Car, directly across from the baggage pick-up exit doors, at Regional Southwest. Our flights were all on-time, and the crew was extremely professional."
Cons: "No need for reclining seats. These cause a problem with leg room, for the person behind the "recliner.""
Pros: "Plane was fine but cheap seats suck"
Cons: "It was a miserably long weather delay that turned into a sleepless. nIght in the airport and on the too cold plane. Not their fault, they kept us updated but updates were always more delays."
Cons: "Seats are ridicoualy close together and the aisle's width to short. Every time someone moves, they are bumping into people seated in aisle seats. Boarding and replanting is a nightmare. Asked to help clean up plane before leaving. For all this, I paid $650."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost every half hour from 4 pm til 9:30. We finally boarded the plane to be ushered off without anyone letting us know anything. Flight was cancelled and we flew the following day"
Pros: "Uneventful, on time! Knees will never be the same, but small price to pay - or so I'm led to believe by your marketing. Also paid 10 bucks for internet- seems excessive."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, plane clean and comfortable"
Cons: "It's about time airlines offer a better snack without paying for it! The sweet wafer is not enough neither are the tiny bags of pretzels!"
Pros: "Quick, on time easy."
Cons: "Short flight.... so no food. No entertainment. Had to put my bag under plane and forgot to take out my headphones. My bad"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Then they told us they might turn us around and take us back. It was anxiety provoking."
Pros: "There was room for my carry on on both flights."
Cons: "The bathroom on the plane smelled of urine. The only snack offered on both flights was a stroopwaffle. Seat didn't relive at all."
Cons: "The seats are Uncomfortable. The food no longer exists. They give you two ounces of drink"
Cons: "I was rerouted, very efficiently, to another airline by United due to late planes. I had paid my baggage fee on united and then had to pay it on the other airline. I have been on the phone 3 times for half an hour each time to get my refund from United. I STILL do not have it!!!!!!!!"
Cons: "After booking my flight months in advance United change are seating and separated us. Spent hours on the phone with no explanation and no assistance. Didn't even help me upgrade when I was willing to pay for it. The worst of it all was the nonsense that their customer service kept spewing. Brushed and straight up lied to. Will do everything possible to never fly united again"
Pros: "My flight was delayed 30+ minutes going out from Ohare. But overall the flight was good & service was fine. Thanks!"
Cons: "The delay concerned me, years ago we flew to Mudkegon and our flight was delayed and we ended up stranded in Detroit overnight. I was very happy to see our plane fly into terminal."
Pros: "The crew is really nice. They are considerate and helpful as if they know you will be bored through out the flight."
Cons: "You get no food. One advise for the company, do not serve alcohol on 6 AM flights. Just serve some eggs or bread. Try to compete with international airlines like emirates and not greyhound buses. The entertainment system requires you to download the app on your phone and you need to buy the internet."
Pros: "Uneventful is good now a days when flying. Plane was comfortable an very smooth flying!!"
Cons: "Our flight attendant was all business an no smiles. I asked for ice an never received."
Pros: "Lost flight other one took longer not happy"
Cons: "Lost flight other took too long"
Pros: "Had the ability to connect in my phone to the app for free in-flight entertainment. Other United flights will have the TV in the headrest but charge you for wifi or to watch TV or movies."
Cons: "Our flight got delayed 3 hours (which I understand happens) but they boarded group 1 individually, group 2 individually, then combined groups 3, 4, and 5 in the same line. I was in group 3 but was stuck behind people in other groups. Also, they ran out of room in the overhead storage which is frustrating when you're flight is already pushed out to a later time - the last thing I want to do at 1:00 am is wait for my luggage because it had to be checked. People brought on carry-on suitcases along with 1 personal item which were huge tote bags or backpacks. There's got to be a way to monitor overhead storage for items like that - if it's the size of a carry-on, they should need to check their suitcase. The snack was lack-luster. I went on a 5-hour flight to Seattle a few months ago and one cookie with no protein is hardly filling for that long of a flight."
Cons: "The amount of luggage people bring as carry ons."
Cons: "Rude staff,"
Pros: "Very nice flight staff. Will be joining again"
Pros: "Very nice and smooth flight, lasted even less time"
Cons: "The lady at check in couldn't give me and my boyfriend seats next to each other, but thankfully there was a very nice lady who agreed to exchange seats in the plane."
Pros: "Short. Easy."
Cons: "Flight a little late. Waited outside at SFO before anyone could board plane 15minutes it was cold."
Cons: "Did not like the commuter ride from newark to syracuse. Probably would not use united again because of that. Had to get on a bus that took us across the street to board this little, very noisy plane. Even the flight to newark was uncomfortable. Seats are too close no legroom and my back was killing me due to uncomfortable small seats. United is not for me. Sorry."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled in Newark for an unknown reason. Luggage was then delayed because nobody from united cared to change it onto the new flight I was assigned to."
Pros: "The worst I have ever taken"
Cons: "Flight attendants rude. Super late and no offer for a drink voucher even"
Pros: "Everyone was pleasant and ask are you comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was great"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "That all the passengers were allowed a carry on bag, the flt was full and they made a lot of people check their bags, not fare!!! This airlines breaks their people into 5 different classes, I'm not sure what or how they do it, I was a 5, I boarded last, people climbing over each other, use to be back to front, after 1st class, of course. It was ridiculous."
Cons: "Departure was changed twice until I would miss my connecting flight. I was sent to another airlines with not much help. Stayed in the airport an additional five hours."
Cons: "I booked my flight over 5 weeks ago, and was given an aisle seat. When I checked in online, my seat had been changed to a middle seat. I tried to change my seat online, and was only given the option of 1 other middle seat. I have to have an aisle seat because of arthritis, and I need to walk around during flight. There were long lines at the desk at the gate, and I couldn't stand there to get my seat changed. Now I'm dealing with lots of leg pain as a result. I NEVER would have booked this flight if I'd known I would'nt have an aisle seat. IT IS "BAIT AND SWITCH"!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy"
Cons: "signed up for a window seat was assigned a middle"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Dinner was served within 1 hr of takeoff and breakfast 1-2 hrs of landing. Nothing served inbetween. There was about 10-11 hrs of nothing. No drinks or snacks served. Very poor service in compairison to other international flights I have taken."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to mechanical issues after waiting for 3 hours. The next flight they put me on was the next day on another airline. They put us up in a shity hotel and the meal vouchers only worked at the airport where everything was closed by then or hotel which had no restaurant. United offered a $50 compensation which is a kick in the teeth compared to the inconvenience I was put trough. If I don't get properly compensated from United for that horrible experience I will never fly them again and tell everyone I know to never fly United."
Pros: "On my first flight from SNA plane and crew excellent. Due t storm in Houston we got on and off plane 3x until tower thought it was a go. Captain was excellent explained everything I am a scared flyer but he was so encouraging and funny he made it a goo experience"
Cons: "Flights back from Fort Meyers planes seemed smaller and no room in seats Entrainment 0 can't fix stars Food 0!didnt eat"
Pros: "The crew -- friendly and informative."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great direct flight, served coffee & snack as soon as reached cruising, offered OJ & water later. Even offered second cup of coffee. Flight arrived at the gate 15 min. early, the baggage was at baggage carrosel fast"
Cons: "We flew united on our way to forida and we had a layover our first flight got delayed so we missed our second flight. Then on our way back they tried doing the same thing. The lady at the counter thank god ran down to delta and got us a flight to atlanta then to st louis. I think united just doesnt want to pay for a hotel room when they are the ones that kept delaying it. It was a nightmare and i dont plan on flying united again."
Cons: "There is extreme turbulence and no one came over the PA system for sure that it was just turbulence. I was afraid"
Pros: "Nothing. Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was schedule to depart at 9:17am and didn't depart until 4pm. Delay after delay. I missed a business meeting with the city and now have to spend more money on a hotel room and rental car as I have to extend my stay as the city is not open for a meeting until Monday. This is absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "Easy,smooth ride, thank you"
Pros: "Cost Ease of booking"
Cons: "delays (weather based )"
Pros: "The flight was short(ish)."
Cons: "The price of flight not in line with service, comfort, anything. Full flight, small seat, some flight attendants in crabby mood, luggage hassle in Houston, didn't get it first, thought they didn't have it. Had to go to United customer service. Ended up being somekind of "jam". Took forever to get luggage. And it cost me 25 bucks extra. Shameful. Poor experience."
Pros: "Boarding on time and easy Seats super comfy Tv was great"
Cons: "Staff not attentive or friendly Not many food options"
Pros: "Updates were poor as to wether or not I would make my connecting flight. When I asked if there were back up options and was told there were not any. After an hour delay I was called up and given a flight number that could be an option."
Cons: "The delays that I experienced were incredibly long. The major problem with this was the lack of comunication that I received from the airline. I could not figure out how to turn off the tv."
Pros: "Security staff was terrific , the Crew was exceptional . Overall satisfied ..."
Cons: "It was a short flight but still very tight . I couldn't take a longer flight on a 737 . Uncomfortable ."
