Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"
Cons: "I found out that my original flight (Wilmington to NY) was canceled 5 hours before it was scheduled to leave. I was rebooked on an earlier flight to Charlotte, which I could do because I had coincidently finished packing early and lived close to the airport. At the airport, my new flight was delayed, which could have caused me to miss my connecting flight to Boston and be stuck at the Charlotte airport overnight. I was then rebooked on a flight that was leaving to NY, with a connecting flight to Boston at 7."
Cons: "Always a problem with these guys"
Pros: "The pilot was awesome! I felt very safe, and he was personable. He was very communicative about our short delay on the runway and also about the storm that we were passing. Very nice crew as well!"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant"
Pros: "The cookies were good"
Cons: "The gangplank was broken. It took so long for them to ascertain the situation, move the broken gangplank away, move the plane from gate B15 to B16, load passengers & luggage and take off, that I missed my connection in LaGuardia. I had to get a standby flight & thankfully got on. Why wasn't that equipment checked out long before it was used?"
Pros: "Flight attendants."
Cons: "Last Friday I had booked my flight for 8am, but when I woke up at 5am I found that they had just cancelled my flight without reason or rescheduling at 4:30am. I called the flight (American Airlines) and was put on hold for 45 minutes. Once I was able to get a hold of someone I rescheduled my flight to 7am, which was very rushed. I still managed to reach on time. my 1st stop was LaGuardia and there my gate was exchanged several times and my flight was delayed for 2 hours to Montreal Canada. I reach Montreal and missed my connecting flight to Winnipeg. Again American Airlines did not reschedule for me, the best they can do is give me a $12 voucher for food. So I get my rescheduled for a flight 3 hours later with an additional atop to Toronto. Unfortunately due to all these circumstances I miss one of the wedding events. I was supposed to reach Winnipeg at 4pm but end up reaching at 12:30am. When returning from Winnipeg, I came across more problems. My flight was cancelled due to weather, and again it is delayed for two hours. Our plane had left the gate and so when the airports in NY were closed we were far from the gate. They made us take our luggage and walk back to the airport. There were no clear instructions given and again I had to reschedule. I was stuck in a country with no family or friends at the airport two hours short of a 24hour day. I am really disappointed in the kind of treatment I received as a flyer, and I have flown many times with other airlines. I also don't buy from Kayak, and this will be the first and last time I ever do."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. It was very comfort and the seats are very good."
Cons: "They changed the terminal for departure three times. Every time it changed al lot of people had to take the shuttle between terminals again. I don't think it was American Airlines fault, but the la guardian airport was not really customer friendly"

Cons: "Rude people"
Pros: "Nothing !"

Pros: "Excellent service fligth on time no complains"
Pros: "The airline staff was friendly"
Cons: "Well I actually got to the airport 2 hours early. When we took off on schedule I never imagined we would fly for 40 minutes in the air and actually turn the plane around to land at the same airport that I left from! They said there was a mechanical issue with the plane. I spent 12 hours at the airport. It was an awful experience and I missed the celebration I was going to attend in New York. I arrived in NYC at 10:00 in the evening."

Cons: "boarded plane 20 minutes later than scheduled departure time spent over an hour on the ground waiting for take off - don't necessarily think this would be the fault of AA but frustrating none the less"
Pros: "Courteous staff, let us on board as we were late arriving to the gate at no fault of ours."
Cons: "We flew into DC at terminal B and had to run to terminal C. We had to checkin again and security almost made us wait on the long line. We complained, stating we had 15 mins to make our flight. Finally they let us through and we ran to the gate, which was closed but the staff opened the door and we got on. Thank goodness!!!"
Pros: "Everything was great until I arrived in New York LGA. The staff at Atlanta's airport were great from the curbside checkin agents to the wheelchair attendant and gate agents so that they 45 minute delay due to air traffic in New York was hardly noticeable. The flight attendants were pleasant and friendly and the food was delicious. We actually arrived ahead of our adjusted ETA, after a very smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon arrival in New York, the 3 of us who needed wheelchair assistance waited and waited for them to come. Finally, the gate agents rounded up some wheelchairs that were sitting around nearby just to get us off the plane and to the gate area. After waiting about 15 minutes, while hearing the gate agents being told repeatedly by the wheelchair dispatcher on the radios that they were coming and were passing through security, 2 female attendants finally arrived and they took the two elderly ladies and off they went, leaving me there waiting. I continued to wait, and wait, and wait for ANOTHER 25 MINUTES, total of 40 minutes after arrival at the gate. The same dispatcher lady continued to say that my attendant was on the way, passing through security for the entire 25 minutes. He asked me to change wheelchairs because he liked his better. He didn't offer to take my laptop bag and put it behind. He took off down the concourse before my feet were even on the footrests, with me holding my legs out in front of me because the footrests were up. After 20 or 30 feet, I got him to stop and let me get my feet down. I told him our luggage was supposed to be at carousel E, so he took me to "A". He asked me if any of the bags there were mine, and I said, "Why would they be here? I told you we were on Carousel E!" So then he wheeled me to Carousel E, and since it had now been almost an hour, it was empty. He asked an attendant where my bag would be, and was told to check at the office, which was back over by Carousel A. Upon finally checking with the personnel in the office, he came out rolling my bags and stood them by me for me to deal with while he just pushed the wheelchair. I had told him I was taking Uber, so he deposited me curbside near the taxi stand, which was not anywhere near where Uber could pick me up and was gone. FINALLY, after arriving earlier than expected at 3:25, at 4:43 I was finally picked up by Uber to go on home. What a nightmare! I thought the wheelchairs were supposed to be waiting upon arrival????"
Cons: "From the surly check in personnel, to the confused boarding. Even less charming than usual. The flight was scheduled to depart at 11:40 from Tampa to Newark. Twenty minute delay for boarding and then additional 40 minute ground delay. Flight scheduled from 11:40 to 2:20 p.m. Onboard the flight attendant came through with the food carte. Were any of the "lunch" items available? "No, we only have snack items on this flight." But it's during lunch time... "It's not a long enough flight." WHO COULD MAKE THIS UP? We declined to complain for fear we would be thrown from the plane. Oh yes, I have 1,800,000 miles on United."
Pros: "The soda"
Cons: "Crazy lady sat next to me complaining about noise"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say about United Airlines"
Cons: "Everything was terrible"
Cons: "in-flight entertainment was broken the entire flight only 1 snack choice (and it had dairy, which i can't have)"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "No entertainment on such a long fight. Food for purchase not included, then the for purchase the system was down. My bags did not arrive , and then i had to wait 3 days in milan eith no luggage at all."
Cons: "The bathrooms were dirty out of toilet paper. The food was mediocre at best. The delight wasn't delayed hours and no one informed us about the status at any point in time. Overall I did not like airchina and I would not choose them again if"
Cons: "The seats and leg room are awful"
Pros: "Flying through the night freed me up the next morning. I'll fly red eye anytime."
Pros: "Everything about my whole trip was amazing"
Cons: "Seats so cramped. Fat person next to me invaded my space in my middle seat"
Pros: "I had not been given a choice of gluten free meal before boarding so I declined the food offered, and the attendant, without my asking her to , went and found something gluten free."
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work well."
Cons: "When experiencing turbulence, the flight attendant came over the speaker and requested everyone to be seated with their seat belts fastened. A few moments later she came back on reprimanding that "THIS IS NOT A JOKE YOU NEED TO SIT DOWN WITH YOUR SEAT BELTS FASTENED" which was still ok. The third announcement was the one I felt was highly inappropriate when she then stated "I DONT KNOW IF YOUVE BEEN WATCHING THE NEWS LATELY, BUT THERE IS NO WARNING WHEN THE TURBULANCE IS GOING TO GET WORSE" frankly I have been watching the news lately and there is plane CRASHES on the news. My husband is afraid of flying and that announcement was terrifying, even for someone who is not afraid to fly. There has to be some sort of protocol of verbage to use when the turbulance is getting bad, because to insinuate the plane could crash to get your point across is crossing the line. I have been on planes where the turbulance is a lot worse and felt this was really out of line."
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
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"
Cons: "horrible service representative in newark."
Cons: "Flights was delayed and connection was unable to be made. My younger brother is now im limbo in newark nj and is not getting much help at all. Very dissapointed in united. He may have to spend the night in the airport they said. Smh"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Absolutely NO leg space."
Pros: "Easy quick boarding - attendants seemed to watch and keep the misc items from going into the overhead."
Cons: "Being woken up to see if I wanted water or food"
Pros: "nicest flight attendants and very friendly, thoughtful service. thanks for a great flight!"
Cons: "Entertainment Did not work properly."
Cons: "Waiting in line for over 3hours to change our flight they have 2 employees for the hall plain it make us very tired. Next time they should be more prepared"
Pros: "Couldn't have asked for more. Quick flight l. Got in early!"
Pros: "Direct flight."
Cons: "Luggage got stuck in plane, 1 1/2 hour wait at carrousel! Newark sucks to get out, took two atemps with 2 GPS and 2 people trying to decifer NJ's crappy road signs!"
Pros: "Boarding on time"
Pros: "The smooth ride"
Cons: "Could not cross my legs Not enough room for food and diabetes kit Flight information would not load"
Pros: "It was a quick flight"
Cons: "Crowded not a lot of room"
Pros: "Staff excellent"
Cons: "Passengers space is insanely small, staff work under restrictive conditions"
Pros: "Customer service was amazing, I really enjoyed my journey traveling with United."
Pros: "Awesome flight , great crew, couldn't ask for better"
Pros: "In seat entertainment was pretty good. Food was also surprisingly good, though it would have been nice if bigger. To be fair, it was typical sized for an airline meal."
Cons: "They ran out of wine in economy. I had two tiny cups and then was told they were all out. Seats in economy plus only barely reclined. I just can't sleep on an overnight flight when sitting virtually vertical. I was seated in economy plus so the legroom was reasonable."
Pros: "I was happy to have leg room on this flight. My first one was way too cramp"
Cons: "Why does the crew giving the announcement have to either hell into the microphone or why does the speakers so loud it was deafing!"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, the plane was new, and staff was friendly."
Cons: "Like others have said, the in-flight entertainment isn't free (even a few channels) so it is pretty useless."
Pros: "The wifi, TV, timeliness of flights, staff."
Cons: "Seat size. Snacks both ways! I need like s snack option "peanuts or granola""
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "I was able to get a seat change so that I had some great leg room."
Cons: "There was no internet or video content without huge fees."
Cons: "United made no accommodation for a late-arriving connecting flight. The United schedule required changing terminals and a race to the next gate -- then closed the doors five minutes early even though there were passengers sprinting from the other terminal to make their connection. They knew the connecting flight had been delayed; they should have waited five minutes to let us on. The result was a nine-hour wait in Newark Airport for the next United flight."
Pros: "Airline attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No wifi and a very small plane. The plane was also extremely cold. There was very cold air blowing at my feet and I was so cold on the flight I was shivering. I had to lift my feet up or place them under my bag to keep them from being so cold. The Newark airport in terminal A did not have many food options and security did not honor TSA precheck. It was also extremely dirty and poorly organized."
Cons: "Seat could not recline, voucher was only a small fraction of the ticket fare that I paid. This is a business class seat."
Pros: "Friendly and efficient. All went as planned"
Pros: "People only comment to complain. In my case, everything went smoothly and ahead of schedule. The pilots took advantage of tail winds and put us at the gate ten minutes ahead of schedule. The crew was professional, personable and did their best to make everyone as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "A male flight attendant was so rude demanding and yelling at me to take my carry on down because according to him it didn't fit, he didn't even try, I asked him politely if I can give it a try and he responded "you can do whatever you want" with such an attitude!!, of course it did fit perfectly. so racist! Also 5hours flight from LA to Newark and not a single snack not even considered that this was a very early flight in the morning."
Pros: "It's was fine no issues"
Cons: "Too close of a connection flight."
Pros: "The flight attendants were extremely nice."
Cons: "Flight was needlessly delayed. No help given. Horrible."
Pros: "The flight was everything I imagined."
Pros: "I've only used United a handful of times between London and New York. They've been okay. The worst flight was on an older plane that felt like it'd been built in 1975, and the entertainment was rubbish. The staff however are always pleasant and accommodating. Their service was just as good on my heavily delayed return flight, and managed to handle the tired, short fused customers with aplomb. Hats off to them."
Cons: "My return flight from EWR to LHR was delayed by 4.5hours. Initially it was a 20minute delay; then we boarded the plane, only to sit still for an hour due to technical difficulties. Then we were delayed by another 30 minutes. Then we were asked to leave the plane as a replacement jet was required. It was meant to take 15 minutes, when it actually took at least 1.5 hours. It was a 6.10pm flight, and we boarded the new plane at 9.30pm. We eventually jetted off at 10.30pm. I'de received 10 text messages stating each each rescheduled/delayed departure time. Sadly, it's the worst flight I've ever had. I ended up 3.5 hours late for work, missed an important business meeting. Shame."
Pros: "We left on time"
Cons: "No leg room what so ever. I was cramped into my seat. The service was terrible"
