Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The crew was rude, we left over an hour late due to human error, there was no food for sale and the internet was down"
Cons: "i was on a commuter jet for 2 1/2 hours which was cramped and uncomfortable. no wifi or any entertainment. we sat on the tarmac when we landed for approximately 10 minutes even though we were not early."
Pros: "Flight was mostly empty and it’s a short trip."
Cons: "Super hot inside the cabin and little we could do to lower the temp"
Pros: "The crew was awesome"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times before we even boarded. Then we sat in the plane for an hour."
Cons: "communication prevented me boarding my British flight, rerouting done by american, had paid reseved seat don't know if I will receive a refund. now have to spend my first few days back home going through the delayed flight to europe protocols."
Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."
Cons: "7 hour delay initially because of a mechanical problem, but massively exacerbated by an inability to find crew. Disappointing...."
Cons: "My seat was disgusting when I went to sit in it. Then I discovered the seat was broken. 24A"
Pros: "Crew was on par. Not great, but not bad either. It was a tiny plane so we were all cramped in there."
Pros: "flight took off exactly on time & arrived on time"
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Pros: "Very nice new plane."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Getting through security at O'Hare was horrible. My plane seat was too upright and felt like it was not bolted to the floor properly."
Pros: "Quick flight, great crew, orderly boarding. Updates to gate were clearly communicated"
Cons: "Very annoyed at "Basic Economy" being a thing. Annoying way to get more $ for the same seat. Avoiding any airline with this status."
Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."
Cons: "The crew was very disappointing!!!!!!"
Cons: "No overhead space"
Pros: "Flight attendant was beyond excellent, Yaniel, who smiled and greeted me helping me to my singular seat on the right side of the plane. He was very professional and kind, with a very well appearance and a fantastic attitude. He was quick with delivering my snack and coffee. Very pleased!!!! First flight attendant to ever make the trip as exceptional as possible. Thank you Yaniel very much."
Cons: "Unbelievable wait times at LGA. Late arrival of plane, extremely late departure at over an hour passed original departure time. Waste of money choosing that ticket and time frame when it was clearly not a concern of American Airlines that I was missing my rides, late getting to CMH etc."
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Pros: "The flight crew were absolutely marvelous and were wonderful on board."
Cons: "British Airways had too tight of connections on flights that we purchased and then they ran late. Because of this, we had to rebook both going to Europe and coming back. Our friends were then charged extra luggage fees when being put on a domestic flight back home after going through customs. It will be difficult for me to want to use British Airways again because of all the flight change notifications we got before traveling and then once we did actual travel."
Cons: "I guess I was lucky to get a seat at all, since this last leg of my itinerary was deleted from my ticket when I got to the airport. So my bag couldn't be checked through, and they wanted to charge me for it even though it was a connection to the international flight I had just taken. A truly dreadful experience."
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Cons: "Seats are cramped"
Pros: "40 minute flight, on time, no complaints."
Cons: "I am very disappointed with my flight this morning on American Airlines 1533. The crew did an excellent job. The issue, however, is the media AA chose to play at 8:30am. The NBC show that was playing on every overhead TV on the flight featured a woman being sexually assaulted by a man, someone being bludgeoned with a piece a wood until they lay unconscience in a pool of blood, and woman with a gun to her head as she’s being yelled at by multiple men. I was flying with my three year old son. Why on earth is it necessary to show this tv show (or any show that has mature/adult ratings) on a flight that is obviously going to have audiences of all ages? Our flight had a dozen or so children and when you show prime time trash on the overhead TVs, it’s really tough to keep kids from looking forward the entire length of the 2 hour flight so they don’t watch a woman being raped, a man being beaten, or someone being held at gunpoint. I am traveling on behalf of the US government so I didn’t have to pay for my ticket. I did, however, pay for my 3 year old son to accompany me on the flight and I am wholly unsatisfied with the AA team responsible for choosing in-flight ‘entertainment.’ I’m not sure if NBC pays AA to feature their shows or AA has to pay NBC for the pleasure of featuring their trash but either way, what in the world are you guys thinking?"
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."
Pros: "As usual, the Cathay Pacific staff were awesome and very professional. Never hesitated to serve the passengers with infants/kids and elderly people. My overall experience was great!! Thank you to all staff!!"
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable. The steward as very helpful - just a cup of coffee when I entered the plane - but after nearly missing connections, it was very welcome."
Cons: "The flight was perfect."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."
Pros: "worst experience. Airplane people not so good"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Poorly food and problems at the check in, although my documents were all in order. Also, we also missed our flight because of the security, who double checked for nothing. Was very very stressful, i will think twice next time before choosing to fly with BA. Check in online wasn t possible."
Pros: "There were a lot of entertainment options, the seats were comfortable, staff was attentive, and two meals were included."
Cons: "Getting around London Heathrow was a pain and took a long time."
Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Pros: "the plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"
Cons: "not a very good choice of current movies"
Cons: "Old Equipment"
Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."
Cons: "The plane had mechanical problems and was rescheduled to a different flight"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Cons: "Unprofessional, rude, unorganized, & just ridiculous!!!!"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and got into air fast."
Cons: "Way behind schedule and virtually no snacks or drinks."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Plane on time"
Cons: "Newark airport security was awful. Only one X-ray security area. Small tight area. No air. Security/TSA kept blaming the customer’s for the slowness. When is lack of X-ray and machines."
Pros: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "Missed this flight"
Cons: "Missed this flight"
Cons: "On time instead of 5 hours late"
Pros: "Kept getting bumped into"
Cons: "Seats were too small; my knees were always against the seat in front of me. Take-off from Dulles was extremely rough. The landing wasn't much better."
Pros: "Amazing amount of legroom! Very comfortable seating, even in economy."
Cons: "I would like to see passengers behave better. One lady pushed in at boarding and went ahead despite the checker telling her she was out of order, Another passenger used both underseat storage in front of him and under him so the person in back of him had no place to put things. Staff should try hard"
Cons: "When transferring our luggage from the flight from Panama, we had to walk all the way to the entrance of the airport as if we had just arrived there instead of being able to transfer the luggage directly. This was not communicated, and we ended up walking around a lot and having to ask at the info desk. When we finally got to the counter, the woman there gave confusing instructions and was incredibly rude to us. As for entertainment on the flight, we couldn't do anything without the app, which you have to get before you're on the plane. Boo."
Pros: "This was my first experience flying United. The staff and pilot were friendly even though everyone seemed grumpy and tired. There was a poor baby that cried almost the whole flight-I get it, I was tired and wanted to cry too...ha! They handled everyone with patience and a smile."
Cons: "When we landed in Columbus we were stuck on the plane for almost a half hour because there were issues with the walking bridge. This was annoying."
Cons: "Given that the airline tickets were purchased together many months ago, it would have been nice if we - husband and wife - would have had side-by-side seating. In the computer age of 2018, that cannot be very difficult to orchestrate."
Cons: "This airline is never on time. Their employees are rude and unhelpful. Planes were dirty! I won’t fly them again"
Pros: "Flight on time, good polite service. Ground crew helped me check in again after the flight from Europe and find my way around O'Hare."
Cons: "The onboard wifi was not working."
Pros: "When we finally got in board and going the pilot got us there quickly to make up for lost time. Staff was nice, it was beyond their control."
Cons: "We waited an hour to board due to a seat that would not stay upright and mechanics fixing it. I was very tired after international travel and it was my last flight to get to my car and go home."
Pros: "For the first time I did not fly on a puddle jumper. Not only was it a real jet, it had good seat comfort and leg room even in economy class. The crew was friendly and attentive. They came by with offerings of water at least 4 times for a 2+ hour flight. Contrast that with my last two 5 hour flights on Virgin and American where they came by with water — ONCE. WiFi wasn’t working for either flight and of course the lack of decent food is discouraging. The coffee has improved which is a plus. Overall, good job, United! Nice not to be jammed in like sardines for once."
Cons: "WiFi wasn’t working and food selection is non existent. Other than that, a very pleasant flight overall."
Pros: "On my flight home from Columbus, there was one guy running the whole ship! He. Was. Everything!!! So Attentive but not overly so. And he read my mind and gave me what I needed before I even realized I did. Thank you to him for one of my best flights!"
Cons: "There really wasn't an entertainment option. A lot of airlines these days have much better service that's simple yet good. Also, just a small pack of pretzels? Fail. You have to keep up with the Deltas and Jetblues of the world!"
Cons: "flight was delayed - mechanical; disabled husband (had knee replacement 15 weeks ago) had to walk the entire way from concourse F to A. the caused excruciating pain."

Cons: "I was not impressed with United and how they handled the delay. The staff did not care that we were waiting for 5 hours for a plane they couldn't even guarantee was coming. No workers were at the gate for a long time to even help out customers."

Cons: "The baggage claim took forever. Our flight actually disappeared from the tv screen and our luggage was not out. Finally after waiting about 20 minutes it popped back up on the screen and them arrived. This is the second time this has happened to me in Columbus and I don't fly there too often"
Pros: "Flight was delayed because they couldn't get their passenger count straight! 30 min delay just to leave the gate!"
Cons: "When we arrived 20 mins late and then no one was at the terminal gate to put sky walk in place! After 20 min wait we had to walk down the aircraft stairs outside and go thru a door and climb two flights of stairs just to get into the airport"
Pros: "Everything was smooth and senseless. And I liked kayak updated me which baggage terminal my bags were. Saved a lot of time walking around the Dulles terminal."

Pros: "The plane had tvs on the back of each seat"

Pros: "The pilot provided an exceptionally SMOOTH flight. The attendants were friendly and helpful."
