Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Mostly pleasant flight crew"
Cons: "Better gate agent and mechanics"
Pros: "The stewardess that was serving refreshments threw my pretzels at me and refused to list off drinks. There was no menu in the seat in front of me, so I was curious of my choices. Extremely rude and unprofessional, there is no excuse for the way I was treated."
Cons: "Hire stewardess that are professional and polite."
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The wait"
Cons: "Absolutely horrible plane. This 737-700 sucks. I’m in premium economy and it’s horrible. Very narrow seats. Very tight. Horrible. At airport American Airlines jfk ground crew were non existent when the aircraft pulled into the gate."
Pros: "The crew looked tired and somewhat friendly. We were delayed about 45 mins and they really didn’t communicate much the Captain did. On the ground we had to wait 20mins for the jet bridge and the door to open and no one said anything. The plane was shut down and turned on again too."
Cons: "More communication with the passengers would have been a bit better !!"
Cons: "We made reservations on Premium economy which was overbooked so we did not get a seat assignment until reaching the gate. However they upgraded us to business class so we were delighted."
Pros: "The food and the movies!"
Cons: "The air on the plane was stale and I could barely breathe the entire flight. I feel sick and light headed after that one."
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Less bumps"
Pros: "Tim was great!"
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold."
Pros: "Military boards with first class."
Cons: "It was very warm on plane. Sat on tarmac for 30 min with no explanation. Flight attendant said she didn’t have any head phones but the. I saw another one with head phones later in the flight."
Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."
Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Good pilot/ crew to passenger interection. Great movie and entertainment selections."
Cons: "Turbulence but airline / pilot can't control that."
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "That you have to pay extra for entertainment, that you have to have your own device, and that the food was mediocre"
Pros: "Wi-Fi was adequate"
Cons: "I paid extra for a better seat, but it still felt cramped. The tray was crooked and I had no priority boarding."
Pros: "Crew helpful and cheerful"
Pros: "Smooth pleasant flight, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "No food. 5 1/2 hours flight and we were offered one biscotti pkg. paid extra to sit in an exit row and never offered any food even to buy. Unpleasant attitude from flight attendants."
Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."
Cons: "There were no TVs for each passenger especially for a 3+ hour long flight which was disappointing."
Cons: "On the first flight my husband and I each had a personal item and carry on that we carried on fine! We stopped in Charlotte for a lay over and we went to board the plane they told us our carry on was to big and had to be checked. This was very frustrating because we were just able to carry on this bag. We feel the planes are the same it shouldn't change from plane to plane."
Pros: "The crew were attentive."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The boarding should start from back to front."
Cons: "If you get to the airport too early and there aren't any American Airlines flight before yours you have to wait for the crew to get there to open the counter and check you in. Just a couple pounds over the 50lbs and you get screwed with a $100 fee. There is very little AC in the airport and very few outlets so if you have to wait for a flight make sure to charge your devices prior to getting to the airport. WiFi on this an all other American Airlines flights I've recently taken has been useless - almost impossible to use."
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for 45 minutes. Grrr"
Pros: "Drink service was good"
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment. The pilot was witty and funky"
Cons: "AC was kinda warm. I was very uncomfortable. I actually was sweating."
Pros: "i loved everything but there should be more variety of food and snacks"
Pros: "It was a larger plane than the first leg of my journey so I did not have to gate-check my carry on luggage."

Pros: "Good service and excellent crew"
Cons: "Food choice are few by the time they reach the back of the plane."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Movie kept freezing up. So did Sodoku game."
Pros: "I loved the extra room in the seating, great seats too. Plus the personal TVs and movie selection was fantastic!!! However, 1/3 of the planes TVs did not work. Luckily, my row of TVs did work and we had an empty seat between my daughter and me , so when my son's TV went out he sat in my row which did work. Great plane, once everything is fixed!"
Cons: "I paid 800.00 and no breakfast order lunch served."
Pros: "Boarding, staff, service, arrival all great"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "Cramped seating. As per usual."
Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Airlines should board from the back first. That would eliminate all the jostling of passengers already seated in the front, as well as the clogging of aisles as passengers trying to load their bags into overhead bins or under seats bar the way for passengers with seats behind the people blocking the aisles. It would also make it easier for flight attendants to get to passengers who need assistance. Seats are too narrow for the size of most American passengers. The people next to me on both my flights took up part of my space and pressed against me because their upper bodies were too large to fit in their seat space. Paying to check a bag on a domestic flight is very irritating."
Pros: "Worst plane to travel 5 1/2 hours. Almost no legroom, very small seats."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude and short. They were not welcoming and an attendant asked if I could "just pick the meat out" of the food considering I am a vegetarian. That is unacceptable and overall they just seemed annoyed that they were working on that flight and did NOT go beyond to make the 13+ hour flight comfortable."
Pros: "The ticketing staff in Lihue was excellent!"
Pros: "Ease of checking in by agent. Courteous and friendly staff. On time departure"
Pros: "Good pilot communications. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Very cramped quarters. Broken seat. Out of control heating system. Rude staff An hour wait for baggage."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Pros: "Thomas of the crew gave incredible service."
Cons: "Both to and from the seat didn't fully function and both ways the entertainment system broke down"
Pros: "The new airplane was nice. The plane that we took to Hawaii was so old that it still had ashtrays and was super dirty."
Cons: "For some reason American has not given us any seat assignments in our trip home and all the gate agents are very unfriendly and not in HR least bit helpful."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "Flight attendant was hilarious, personable, and caring."
Cons: "I reserved an aisle seat but somehow was assigned a window seat when I checked in. Sat next to a very large man and now my back and neck hurt from being cramped next to the side of a curved fuselage."
Cons: "20 min delay at Dallas International"
Cons: "I choose my seat to accommodate a physical condition. My seat was changed at the last minute and that made the flight very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Nothing. Great shirt flight"
Pros: "Not sure I can comment on this particular flight."
Cons: "On time departure, being truthful about delayed departure time and taxiing time, easier landing (had a lot of ear pain from rapid air pressure drop), It took over 30 mins from the time the plane landed for bags to load on the carousel"
Pros: "on time. Seat was fine."
Pros: "The crew was great. The flight arrived on time even though there was a mechanical delay."
Pros: "Excellent crew, really liked large overhead bin capacity on this 737-800, and excellent boarding."
Cons: "United apparently insists on making entertainment available only through its United app and personal devices. That may be OK for lots of passengers, but we prefer the entertainment options available on almost every other airline that flies internationally and long distance domestic flights."
Cons: "Didn't realize when we booked our seats that they were basic economy and we couldn't upgrade or change them. I was seated away from my husband, beside a very large man who hugged the armrest and munched loudly on corn chips. For 5 hours. Movie headphones were poor. No leg room and I'm 5'4", 125 lbs."
Cons: "Way too small a plane for the flight length."
Pros: "This plane has more space than larger plane, was more comfortable."
Pros: "The cabin crew was horrible. When serving refreshments during the flight, I was ignored repeatedly when I asked for a soda. My wife sitting next to me, and the other passenger on our row were served. I asked the flight attendant 5 times for a drink and never received it."
Cons: "fire the flight attendant, and find somebody who cares for their customers."
Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."
Cons: "First class seat and it barely reclined at all"
Pros: "The variety of movies"
Cons: "No daily wifi"
Pros: "quick fast and no nonsense, nothing to worry about on a 30 minutes. Hawaiian gets you there fast and mostly on time."
Pros: "The flight was fine, no drama. Crew was s great. But damn that is an uncomfortable plane. We were only on it 3 hours and I found the seat to be so short in the seat pan my back and legs were aching an hour in to it. You are really are just pearched on the seat. Also the aisle is extremely narrow. You almost have to walk side ways down it."
Pros: "The 787. Great plane. Great ride."
Cons: "Crew members on all 37 United flights that I have taken in the past 19 months have been rude, unpleasant and grumpy. They do not accommodate modern methods of making children comfortable in seats, such as the use of jetkids and jetbox accessories. I have experienced lies (yes, I’ll be back with more water! Sure, I’ll check for some eye wash for your wife.), misleading (embellishing rules, enforcing rules that do not exist) and overall terrible behavior. With the exception of a few ground crew members who’ve shone through, my interactions with United staff have not been good."
Pros: "The plane took of and arrived safely and on time. The entertainment was decent."
Cons: "1/2 bag of pretzels for a ~6 hour flight? Are you kidding me! The whole ride was sweltering hot. United flight attendants almost universally hate their jobs and they let it show. The entertainment system takes up half of the room under the seat, as if things weren’t cramped enough already."
Pros: "Lufthansa was great"
Cons: "TSA in SFO treated us like vermin. Issuing confusing orders and barking at us to come and go. I almost cried that I had returned to this beautiful country to be treated like an unwelcome criminal."
Cons: "Not being able to request a seat on the aisle."
Cons: "We boarded the plane and due to "mechanical problem", we sat on the tarmac for ~3 hours before departing. This led to missing our connection at LAX and then missing our connection in ORD to State College tacking 6 extra hours to the trip. The late arrival and full work schedule the next day left me exhausted and got a nasty cold as a consequence. I find the frequency of mechanical problem delays to be high and increasing."
Pros: "Smooth easy flight."
Cons: "The only real downside was seat 22D headphone jack was broken so it made for a long flight but I played some games."
Pros: "Finally, got a plane and arrived in SLO!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours: no information, no explanation. In fact, all cooperating connecting United flights were 2 hours late, not just mine"
Pros: "Great coastal views"
Cons: "O issues"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "No one died."
Cons: "The boarding was he'll at best."
Cons: "Flight didn't happen due to reschedule from delays"
Pros: "Same as my previous flight, the crew was outstanding. Had to avoid a rain storm and no turbulence. The stewardess was great! Everything went well!"
Cons: "Again same as above, comfort was a major hindrance. Hard to get comfortable. Wish the airlines could make seating arrangements a little larger!! Otherwise the experience was great!"
Pros: "Generally, a good flight experience. The crew were polite and professional."
Cons: "No drinks"
Cons: "It was an hour late."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Seats are tight, food is a few pretzels."
Cons: "It was freezing on the flight no blankets. A lot of turbulence and a very hard landing. Not pleasant at all."
Pros: "Boarding was as it should be. The flight crew were friendly and did their jobs well."
Cons: "Two of the movie screens in our row were broken. The seats are rediculously tight. Leg room is terrible."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled cause of issues with plane. Took over 5 hours in line to get to the counter to talk to someone. There were only 2 counter people for first 3 hours. Once at counter ther had to put us on flight for next day. (Just informed 5 min ago that flight has been delayed another day cause of plane issues.) they couldn't get us to sit together which I understand but also put me in a middle seat which I'm clostraphobic so that sucks. Told me that I can book a hotel to stay at and they would reimburse me.... eventually. Fought over that for an hour and they finally agreed to pay for Hotel. Overall the trip was great but the departure from Kauai has been real bad. Still waiting to leave the island."
Pros: "Staff was very kind and genuine"
Cons: "the plane was absolutely freezing cold!"
Cons: "Plane change from lie down seats to regular. Intermittent sound on TV. Only movies & not very good. Attendant spilled water on me & iPad filling glass for window passenger. Seat reclinred but needed to be manually pulled upright. Not very good value for 1st class ticket price."
Cons: "My scooter should have been gate checked to BWI. instead it was only checked to LAX due to a error at the gate. It arrived 14choirs later."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "No food. Just some peanuts"
Pros: "I like how courteous the attendants were."
Cons: "We had many delays with the system down. We ended up in lines at the airport for nearly 3 hours. Also, it would have been nice to be given food for that long of a flight."
Cons: "did not take that flight, the return date need changed and it was more money to change date than it was to buy a new ticket"
Pros: "Flight was on time and boarding, crew and staff were all as expected."
Cons: "This was a "puddle Jumper" flight so seats were small but all as expected."
Pros: "I really appreciate them getting us there safely the crew was fine and it was nice to have tvs on each seat complimentary it really helps having something else to take you away mentally when physically your crammed together and it's really not comfortable or pleasant. I think the staff and crew were just fine though it's just flying has gotten to be something I don't enjoy and want to avoid as much as possible it's that way with most airlines though I think her blue is a little better on seat space and usually always has the tvs but yeah they are limited where they fly and it I is just expensive and uncomfortable to fly I think."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and expensive."
Cons: "United canceled my reservation without any explanation. The Worst customer service ever!!!!"
Pros: "Wonderful experience the entire way! I did fly first class as I've decided if I have to fly all the way across country I want to be very comfortable, and I was! Thank you United!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. Crew was kind to allow me to use an empty seat in the middle row and get more space. Managed to connect to onboard entertainment with a tablet and avoided to use the tiny screen that still exists on United's 767s."
Cons: "Food was a bit tasteless."
Cons: "My flight was two hours delayed and overbooked so I have up my seat and united ensured we'd get to slo asap but ended up not leaving lax until 8:00."
Pros: "Chairs were comfortable on this plane"
Pros: "There was a large amount of room"
Pros: "Excellent service as usual, really enjoyed your free movies and shows on the seat screens of my flight a few weeks ago thought United had really upped their game."
Cons: "How olds a plane it still has ashtrays? There was a part of a seat under me and my arm rest was broken."
Pros: "I liked the information provided by the pilot and the smooth ride and good landing."
Cons: "The stewardess just went through the motions. She walked down the aisle with water but never asked if you wanted any unfriendly demeanor"
Cons: "IT WAS CANCELLED"
