Cons: "never made it to this flight."
Cons: "DCA poorly organized"
Pros: "We got there safe. The flight was smooth and ryhe crew was friendly"
Cons: "The plane door wouldn’t lock so we were delayed a while. The food cost too much so all you get is a cookie and a cup of coffee and the bag cost $30 to check. I miss the days of complimentary services."
Cons: "Very close quarters, food was what you might expect - just ok, media /entertainment console not working and then we had the crying baby. Suggest priority boarding, go for additional leg room, bring your own media entertainment and purchase good noise cancelation headphones."
Cons: "Paid for seats so I could sit with my guy - still had zero leg room. Generally disappointed with the state of air travel in the US - feels like we're being herded like cattle. Would like to vote with my dollars to help airlines that value customers and aren't trying to pinch pennies/nickel & dime us"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."
Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."
Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"
Cons: "Gate agent told me it wasn't his job to quickly verify if my luggage had made it on the plane after my 10 minute sprint in PHX. I know at my job, I don't get the luxury of telling customers "it's not my job", especially when the customer has had a bad experience with us."

Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."
Cons: "We didnt managed to get on that flight due to the delay from precious flight from philadelphia"
Pros: "Good meals and accommodating crew"

Pros: "Crew made up time to get us in to Boston nearly on time."
Cons: "1 hour delay in LA without an explanation. 20 minute delay in Boston, on arrival, because the jet bridge did not fully extend to the plane."
Pros: "The gentlemen from the wheelchair service who was there to pick us up when we arrived in Heathrow went above and beyond his duties. Instead of passing us over to another wheelchair attendant as we needed to switch terminals, he stayed with us thru the terminal change until we were on the airplane. We needed to get our boarding passes at Heathrow from a different airline and he helped us with this. Kudos to him!! The attendants on this flight were very helpful when my husband was having a diabetic reaction and I was vomiting form air motion sickness. We were a mess!! However the flight attendants were sure we had a wheelchair in Chicago and helped us with our bags as we were exiting the plane. Nice Job"
Pros: "The crew was friendly There was a bit more legroom than usual"

Thant my paymenr was not process but yet i never got an email or call saying different. I recived my boarding pass and my payment was pending!!

Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortably"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind and professional"
Cons: "My nonstop flight was cancelled and I was given a replacement flight with a layover. The cancellation was given with short notice and made for a stressful ride to the airport in oreder to make the new flight time.The layover was supposed to be one hour and ended up being 3 hours. This was very disappointing and exhausting flight. The ride was fine once on board"
Cons: "Delayed. Missed connection. Happens too often. Moving my business to southwest."
Pros: "The flight from New Jersey to Michigan is short."
Cons: "My flight in January was delayed because mechanical issues with the plane. My flight in February was delayed because of mechanical issues on the plane. Each time we were delayed about the amount of time the actual flight takes. The bathrooms on both planes smelled like a sewer."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly!"
Cons: "3 hour delay, water didn't work in bathroom so there was no washing my hands, bathroom old and dirty, seats old, mismatched and dirty. Essentially a terrible flight."
Pros: "Didn't take me long to rebook the flight when it got cancelled due to weather/pilots timing out"
Cons: "The way the whole thing was handled. I ended up flying on the 5th because of the issues with weather. My general problem was with the way the situation was handled. We shouldn't have boarded the plane on the 4th given the fact that the pilots were probably gonna time out anyway. Instead of wasting time, the protocol should've been to begin rebooking everybody to another flight. Just my two cents"
Pros: "I liked I got notified of the delay."
Cons: "The flight kept getting pushed back and no alternatives were provided. I was able to get on a different flight after sitting at the airport for 6 hours because the delay text came after I was just about to the airport. Very inconveniencing for traveling."
Cons: "We changed planes and was 5 hours late"
Pros: "Never will fly United again. First flight left early and we missed it.second re-flight arrived late to get us so we arrived too late to get our next flight. Here we are spending all our money in airports and a cheap motel in Chicago in the rain instead of being in Florida with our family."
Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "I purchase the economy plus seat, hoping to get some sleep. But, the seat did not recline at all! It was so uncomfortable that I could not rest. This was not worth the extra $57 I paid."
Cons: "Flights were all delayed or cancelled"
Pros: "This is not a long flight (Grand Rapids, MI to Newark, NJ: just under 2 hours). There was a minor delay for departure of 20 minutes that Kayak and United kept us well aware of. The Grand Rapids, Ml airport is one of my new favorites -it's small, friendly, comfortable and quick and easy to navigate."
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late. But we didn't miss any connections so everything turned out okay."
Pros: "That trip was great to Housto!"
Pros: "Nowadays the gate closes 10 minutes before takeoff which really helps get the plane off on time as we can make connections. Some may not know this and find it frustrating. As a regular traveler I appreciate the move."
Pros: "Due to operations, maintenance, crew arriving late (the excuses kept changing) our flight was 2 hours and 15 minutes delayed! I understand things happen, however, I've flown in Delta and when they had delays they brought complimentary snacks and drinks for us at the gate. United did nothing but give excuses, changing reasons for the delay. The flight was 2 hours late, which would push us from breakfast to lunch yet they provided no extra food! They gave us direct tv instead."
Cons: "Very delayed. Poor compensation. Poor explaination. They just didn't manage the situation well, customer satisfaction should be their first goal and they didn't seem to care. Fortunately for them, we were all a patient good natured group of passengers, but now that I think it over, we WERE mishandled and we should have been more upset"
Pros: "Fast flight, on-time"
Cons: "Old plane, uncomfortable seats, really dirty looking bathroom"
Cons: "I cancelled it and it appears it didn't really cancel"
Cons: "Our plane was delayed leaving Grand Rapids. Once in Houston there was no gate available causing another 10 minute delay. All bags were required to be checked plane side so once we finally got off the plane it took another 10 minutes to get our bags. Many passengers had tight connections and had to rush to their next flight. My connection was already tight as it was - and I had to go to a completely different terminal very far from where I was to catch it. Five of us were on that flight connecting to San Diego. We finally made it to the gate. The plane was still there but the door was closed so we were not allowed to board. It was the last flight out so we were stranded in Houston overnight. This caused me to miss a very important medical appointment this morning - and to have to cancel client sessions leading to a significant loss of income."
Pros: "United always has the cleanest planes I've been on the offer a lot for what they have."
Cons: "Seats are a little tight. I'm a 6'4" male knees always in the back of a seat makes for an uncomfortable ride. However the seats are the most comfortable one been on in a nation wide travel."
Pros: "Non stop service Friendly, courteous personnel"
Cons: "Cost of the flight"
