Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I got there safe!"
Cons: "I f plane had slowed downed during turbulence."
Pros: "I got an unexpected box lunch. Food was good. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats were cramped. A little more elbow room would be welcome."
Cons: "The flight had an emergency oxygen failure an hour into the flight, so we had to turn around and go back to the departure city for 4 hours. Extremely annoying on an overnight flight."
Pros: "On Time Departure / Early Arrival. Pleasant Crew"
Pros: "The trip started off poorly with a day delay and rebooking hotel and car at final destination. Not to mention our final destination is San Antonio not Phoenix. We were not rebooked for a flight from PHX to SAT. But after a few hours we were finally booked. We didn’t really appreciate the 7 hour layover at 0100 in the morning and nowhere to get a meal or even coffee. However, the flight had the same crew from the night prior and they were excellent. The flight was open so we were able to get more leg room, less waiting time for the bathroom, and pretty much one on one service from our flight attendants. With all the struggle in the beginning, this particular flight was actually the best flight I have been on."
Cons: "We were ok with the hotel and meal vouchers however, again, the only part of our itinerary looked at was the first flight, not the second into SAT. Had we not questioned the agent, we would have been stuck in PHX with no room, no car, and if we eventually would have gotten a flight, our reservations for car and hotel in SAT would have been cancelled and I would have been out $1700. I already lost money but it could have been worse. Basically, I am paying for a car and room that I am not currently in. Reimbursement for that would have been nice. Either way we will still travel using the travel service and this particular airline in the future."
Pros: "It was a safe flight back to the Phoenix thank you."
Cons: "More ethical vegan options."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "They cancelled two of my flights in one weekend. We will not use American Airlines again."
Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Pros: "The flight was good."
Cons: "The seat size could be bigger, and the layover was awful. Sixteen hours is unheard of."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice crew, decent entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "No AC, and after boarding there was an issue with the; we had to deboard and wait nearly an hour to load onto another plane."
Cons: "The entire entertainment system was down the entire 6 hour flight. Crew attempted to reboot the system several times with no luck."
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Pros: "More room"
Pros: "A couple crew members were great and attentive. A couple seemed like they would’ve rather been anywhere else."
Cons: "This plane is so outdated. For such a long flight, these days entertainment is everything. The movies got interrupted every time an announcement was made (as in the screens went black and never came back on only the sound) this happened to 3 movies! The “wifi” completely useless."
Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Good entertainment. Gate agents friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Friendly attendants"
Pros: "Everything went smooth and fast"
Pros: "Comfortable, fast check in, nice staff, arrived a little early, great timing. Will fly AA again"
Pros: "Flight was smooth, on time. Modern plane. Got the sense that careful aircraft maintenance is always a high priority. Courteous attendants. Large choice of movies."
Cons: "Blankets but no pillows on this long red-eye. We need a pillow! Wrap was a bit doughy. no choices."
Pros: "Efficient, nice crew."
Cons: "Seats were rock hard. Terrible situation for a long flight."
Cons: "I booked in August with your company for a trip in December. I booked out of Pittsburgh to Philly both directions to avoid Chicago. I picked seats and also chose British Airways. What I got was my trip to Philly to Manchester with middle of the middle seats (I PAID FOR AISLE). On the way back we got a change through Chicago (which I tried to avoid by booking in August). We did get the proper seats, fortunately. I will never book with your company again. So dissatisfied ....I booked so early and to no advantage."
Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"
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."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "No own movie screen for a 6 hour flight. No snack/ nuts with drinks"
Cons: "My luggage was inexplicably placed on a later flight which arrived an hour after my flight arrived."
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Cons: "Employees seemed like they didn’t like working for American. Flight was delayed and nobody informed us about it until it was past the past the boarding time. Missed connecting flight and booked on flight 5 hours past original departure time. Sat in an aisle seat and stewardess kept bumping my arms."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
Cons: "Agent at gate said overhead compartments were all full and no more room for any bag. So I had to check in my carry on luggage . To my surprise, there had many open space when I walked in the plane. The worst thing was my brand new suitcase was torn. I told the luggage agent the incident and she said they had no liability what so ever."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Cons: "flight from Philly to Ithaca was late also"
Cons: "My seat was broken and wouldn't recline very much at all."
Pros: "The entertainment was a new release movie - liked that. The food was okay."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable, especially for a 7 hour trip! My tray table broke and would not close. I informed a stewardess and she apologized for the inconvenience and did her best to duct tape it shut (twice). It's an old plane, I would not recommend for a flight more than 2 hours. Wasn't greeted at boarding. Had to interrupt staff to ask which side of plane I should walk down to get to my seat. I paid extra for 12th row - waste of money!"
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Nothing special about American. Boarding process doesn't make sense. People crowd the gate during boarding. Aircraft cabin is outdated. Would love to see, at minimum, power outlets for each seat. Cabin was frigid, does it need to be that cold?!"
Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours. That's not human."
Cons: "After the 2 hours delay, I had to take a shuttle that took forever to get to the terminal that has my suitcase."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and movie selection was excellent. They did not provide headphones however. Boo."
Pros: "I loved that the on demand movies were free! The time went by so fast!"
Cons: "I didn't like that it said Alaska Airlines but it was really American so I ran 4 terminals and had to go through agricultural inspection twice. The guy at the counter didn't want me to check in my bag because it was 58 mins before my flight. The lady at the station really helped me and let me check my bag."
Cons: "No room, small seats and no food"
Cons: "The wifi did not work and we were not offered any food, and the beverage choice was only water or coffee. Very old plane with broken seats."
Pros: "TV and on time flight"
Pros: "Free Meal was a welcomed surprise. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Except for one gentleman the rest were kind of surly flight attendants. No personal video system. Old plane."
Pros: "I was served breakfast and lunch/dinner"
Cons: "Trying to sleep in an airport is near impossible"
Pros: "The food was ample and delicious. The stewardess was very pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I had a very difficult time adjusting my reclining seat. It gave new meaning to physical comedy. Anothers' seat locked up all together and an attendant had to play with it for a long time to get it to an upright position. Another woman's phone slipped back under the cushion and she had a most difficult time retrieving it."
Pros: "Service by the ANA crew was excellent"
Pros: "The flight from Honolulu to San Francisco was great! Staff was amazing. Trip was smooth and very enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight from San Francisco to Washington was horrible. Terribly overcrowded and i wasn’t offered a thing until 40 minutes till landing. Then the flight from Washington to Chattanooga was delayed over 2 hours. Which i understand safety comes first but it made for a very long two day trip back from Hawaii."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "snacks were wimpy"
Pros: "Lufthansa crew and service made the long trip not just bearable,but enjoyable!"
Cons: "The seats are super squeezed together. My daughter and I weigh no more than 130 lbs each and We were very uncomfortable."
Cons: "It was operated by United Airlines. Absolutely no food oe entertainment, limited comfort."
Cons: "Except for this one male crew, the Asian women were mean/rude. I always try to fly with ANA or JAL to Hawaii and I thought my flight back was also ANA, but it was UA. Food and crew are ALWAYS better with ANA and JAL I wonder if UA crew have ever flown with ANA or JAL..."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "It was united airlines not ana airlines"
Pros: "Lots of good movies to watch; inflight meal was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line; couldn't get a seat at airport check in and had to get assigned at the gate. Understand that the flight was fully booked but still was a little uncomfortable as I couldn't get an aisle seat."
Pros: "Upgrade and lay flat seats."
Cons: "Too crowded."
Pros: "They were nice. Speak different languages to cover travelers all over the world. But food wasn't that great."
Pros: "Despite the lack of entertainment options, the ability to upgrade to economy plus made my flight comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment on board, and you need a plugin installed on your mobile device to make their streaming service work, which I didn't have."
Pros: "No wifi, so no entertainment. But we did get 2 packets of snacks!"
Pros: "Not much ~ no movies, no rental video device ~ nothing"
Pros: "The flight was great and crew was awesome!"
Cons: "There was no working wifi, which was a bit of a bummer. But certainly not the end of the world!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed several times due to no pilot"
Pros: "The crew were polite and helped to assist the passengers who has the same seats."
Cons: "The fact that I had to download an app for onboard entertainment prior o my flight is farcical."
Cons: "$660 in baggage fees for a military traveller who signed up with a U.S. Flag carrier. The whole purpose of choosing United was their baggage limits, instead its just a code-shared flight with ANA as the operator and I end up paying loads to bring home equipment. Will use a budget airline that is more upfront with their fees next time."
Pros: "Overall, the plane seemed newer and was very comfortable."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little disorganized, but being in group 5, it didn't really affect me too much. The crew on board did their job, but they could check on the passengers a little bit more and possibly pass out water or refills to drinks."
Pros: "Good movie selection, easy and unremarkable flight. Great way to travel!"
Cons: "Terrible experience ever!!!!! Didn't get economy plus that I paid for, seats didn't recline and luggage got damaged and was not replaces or compensated for."
Cons: "No entertainment at all?"
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants wasn't the friendliest, a bit of a "humph" attitude..."
Pros: "Not everyone showed up for the flight, so I got an extra seat to spread out across."
Cons: "You should make seats that absorb smell. The guy in front of me smelled like he pooped his pant."
Pros: "The lady at the gate did everything she could to get my wife and I seats next to each other. Very kind and polite woman at HNL."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and no leg space at all. Paid the price of a meal at a restaurant for a box of snacks on the plane. Food grossly overpriced."
Pros: "We arrived, and were on time."
Cons: "The following points would be totally ok for a 50 Minute business flight, but not to a 5.5h flight to Hawaii. - Luggage costs extra $25 per direction. This amounts to additional 10% of the total costs. Does anyone not take checked luggage to Hawaii? - The lunch was a savory snack. Really, because a sandwich is too expensive? - Entertainment needs to be purchased extra. Use your existing Directv subscription? Of course not. - Power socket underneath the seat - good idea. One that actually works? Oh wait."
Pros: "Crew was great willing to accommodate and professional."
Cons: "Extra costs for luggage, fees for internet and entertainment which is wrong especially on long flights. Delta offered free entertainment. on their flight for LAX to Honolulu. SEATING WAS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE !"
Pros: "Everything else was fine. I was even able to access my luggage in LAX to retrieve my medication, which I accidentally had left in there. Thanks for that."
Cons: "Stewardess was so big and clumsy, that she had to hold on to the overhead bins and wake me up every time she squeezed through aisle and scraped by me. I know you cannot discriminate against big staff, but you have to make the aisle wider if you want your passengers to be comfortable and undisturbed."
Pros: "The return flightf we had our be on from S,an Francisco to Atlanta , we had only 20 minutes to make it to the boarding gate. We were tired and didn't have time to use the bathroom nor eat before boarding. This is because my flight was changed. I'm so upset with United."
Cons: "Boarding long lines in Honolulu"
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "The plane got almost 1/2 way to SFO before having to return to honolulu bc they didn't have enough fuel. We spent 5 hrs in the air over th pacific for nothing and wasted a while day of our life. No weather issues, no mechanical issues, just they didn't have enough fuel widen it turned out there were strong headwinds."
Cons: "Cramped and overcrowded"
Pros: "The only thing good was the flight attendants were very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "No free food or alcohol. This is the first international flight that I flew that didn't offer free food and alcohol. Never flying United again"
Pros: "Boarding and in boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "See earlier comments."
Cons: "It would be nice to see a smile and enthusiasm from the attendants. Service? Waited almost two hours before my empty bottle was removed from my tray top. Asian airline attendants can teach UAL's a thing or two about the art of service."
Pros: "Extra legroom in premier economy was great. Entertainment made the long flight quite enjoyable."
Cons: "I liked the 2-5-2 seat arrangement better than this new 3-3-3."
Pros: "The staff was really nice! Flight was on time and clerk changed my flight to a more efficient itinerary"
Cons: "I had alittle trouble with the entertainment/technology aspect but eventually got it. I had to download the united app and then went around and around till i got the movie i wanted to watch. It would be good to have an outlet to power the device also."
Pros: "That we got there earlier than expected."
Cons: "The shakedown to buy food or rent a tablet was beyond me. On the way to Honolulu. The young lady next to me had not eaten and it was the third flight on her journey, she had one more flight to go. the pressure from the flight attendant was similar to a very bad used car salesman. Tacky. When the same thing happened to another young person on my flight back, I suspected this is the way United runs its flights. I'm guessing United doesn't treat their employees well. They did just enough to be barely pleasant. I won't fly United again."
Cons: "It was ok. We had to connect to the their wifi in order to watch movies, yet the wifi continued to buffer. So it wasn't the best."
Pros: "Pilots did a good job comforting passengers about duration of flight, weather and safety. Smooth flight for all 8 hours. Sevice was good."
Pros: "I like the o assemblers that rode with me. Two individuals that were extremely kind to me Jim and Ethan Farley that were in the same situation I was in."
Cons: "After a rough start in Honolulu we landed in San Francisco to catch our connecting flight to Chicago but when arriving to the gate before the plane left I along with the other passengers were ignored and given no information as to why we couldn't board the plane. The best they could do was St Louis. Frustrated is an understatement."
Pros: "The flight seemed to go by a lot quicker than I expected"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline back so I could not sleep on my REDEYE flight!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour on take off. Had to wait 1 hour for bags at my destination because the cargo door was stuck."
Cons: "Plane old , no music, no tv, no plug in"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say in this box."
Cons: "7 am flight cancelled and re booked for 4pm flight on standby until then. 4pm flight didn't finish boarding until 5pm. No compensation offered on top of all of that, turbulence was terrible during descent. Been on easily over 100 flights and this was the worst"
