Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "no food at all"
Cons: "It was way too hot in the aircraft"
Cons: "if the crew/flight wasn’t filled with racist tendencies that forced a black man and his partner to take a new flight because his “tone” wasn’t to their liking when he responded to accidentally being the wrong seat, costing us 90 minutes at least of delays because they deplaned us all when all."
Pros: "Upgraded to premium economy, nice seat, overall comfort."
Cons: "Leg rests for our seats didn’t work. Crew said ther was no fix for problem and left it at that. A bit disappointing. Fruit plate was disappointing, but pastry and yogurt was nice. Fruit wasn’t fresh."
Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Cons: "No personal entertainment for an international flight."
Cons: "horrible food and poor service and attitude of cabin crew"
Pros: "I took two connecting flights on American Airlines between Los Angeles and Lisbon period on the website American claims to have charging and or electrical ports in every row. There were none on either flight. To make matters worse, when my tablet and phone batteries both died before the end of the first flight, there was no inflight entertainment, other than 1 ridiculous thing available, on either flight. American has switched to BYOD for entertainment, but forgot to provide a way to charge our own devices. Incredibly stupid."
Cons: "On top of that, one of the flight attendants on the Philadelphia to Lisbon run was a hella snarky guy with a bad attitude all the way through. I would be surprised if I am the first person to complain about him."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "It was so ht on the aircraft, Almost no aircirculation"
Pros: "The entertaining, the aircraft"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Left Newark 2 hours late which mean missing connections in Chicago by 20 minutes. From that point on American was inept in getting me to MSP."
Pros: "Boarded on time. Concierge met me at baggage check to direct me to the queue I needed. (Two days ago, no concierge, and I spent 15 min in the wrong line to check a special-handling bag.)"
Cons: "25 min to get from late push-back to throttle-up. Late arrival at destination."
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good Crew. Smooth Flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours. Land and 1 hour later still waiting on baggage claim. Kinda sucks when its after 1am and I'm waiting."
Cons: "This was an 8 hour international flight and there was no leg room, outdated amenities and no tvs! How can people take an 8 hour flight without individual air vents??? I have never had such an uncomfortable flight, and I will never fly with you again."
Pros: "Flight was as expected, Nothing to report."
Cons: "Seat was fine and of course when the person in from recliner it was no longer fun. And that was on premium economy."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 35 minutes"
Cons: "Seat back in front of us broke. So my partner and I had to move to other seats during landing."
Pros: "Didn't fly."
Cons: "Didn't fly. Rented a car because this flight was delayed for no weather related issue."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Some crew were not very welcoming (smile)."
Pros: "Nice plane once they got it working!"
Cons: "Turned up with pet cat having called American Airlines numerous times to confirm all was ok. I had all the correct paperwork and they did not let my cat through. Having then gone through to the gate without cat (left cat with husband) I was then called up at the gate to ask if I was flying with a pet because it was on my records. The flight was then delayed for 3 hours with little explanation and as far as I'm aware, no compensation."
Pros: "Best part left on time and arrived early. Many thanks. Good seat room in the older S80."
Cons: "Overhead bins very full. No entertainment but that's ok for flights under 4 hours."
Pros: "I am happy to have made it to my final destination."
Cons: "This was a disappointing experience to say the very least. The boarding process in Quito was chaotic to say the least. The AA staff did not make an effort to maintain any kind of order. My husband and I are both enrolled in the AA frequent flyer program and had at least 6 people cut in front of us while on-line. When we finally approached the AA representative, Dayana Gómez, She was rude and not helpful. Our seats on the UIO-Dallas flight did not even recline. We sat completely upright for the duration of the 6 hour overnight night flight into Dallas."
Cons: "Pre-booked Special meals were not catered to. Could have appreciated more friendly crew."
Cons: "Almost did not make it on the dieses flight because totally crowded at security check point."
Pros: "I cannot comment because the total journey was without food."
Cons: "The crew is so rude that I was asked to remove the meat and eat the remaining. Is there no value for Veg eaters in American Airlines."
Cons: "Missed this connection"
Pros: "The pilot was great about keeping us up to date on the possible route change and exactly how long we would be sitting on the runway, new arrival time, etc."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 35 minutes with no offer of a beverage (though there was going to be beverage service). Then just before take off as the flight attendants were snacking in the back, we asked about a possible drink and they said the flight was going to be too turbulent to serve anything."
Pros: "Pretty average flight and experience overall. Food was as expected. Average flight attendants - no one really stood out, which is odd for an international flight."
Cons: "Premium economy seat didn't decline making this the most uncomfortable and unpremium experience I've had. Sore neck and back. Searching for media such as artist or movie worthless - yields no results, yet the album is included in the listings - I stumbled on it earlier in the flight and wanted to listen to it again. Same search experience on a flight three months ago."
Pros: "Used system wide upgrade to 1st class. Excellent service"
Cons: "bumpy ride"
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Cons: "They run out of food in Business Class. Service was the same as in coach."
Cons: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."
Pros: "I like AA because they are honest and kind. I received good value for my money."
Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Pros: "Our flight from Rome to Chicago was on an airplane from the Flinstones. It creaked, no amenities, not just no wifi and fancy things, but no air nozzles at the seats!?"
Cons: "Horrible flight, paid extra for nicer seats, but the airplane was prehistoric"
Pros: "Snacks and beverage"
Pros: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "My aisle had a couple of vets who were just doing the job. Missed several rows during a beverage service. Not bad but nothing special."
Cons: "Only a few options as far as tv and movies"
Cons: "Live Tv CNN did not work"
Pros: "Got home safely (eventually)"
Cons: "Left 3.5 hours late. Promised a connection the following morning and a hotel. Arrived at SFO only to be told that they would not pay for the hotel (or make arrangements) as the delay was weather related (since when is trying to leave BEFORE a typhoon hits and being LATE a weather related issue). They gave me the option of after a 13 hour flight at 11:30pm walking over to find AA staff in another terminal to argue for payment. I was too tired. After 1 million miles on AA I will avoid them now."
Cons: "I ask many AA customer assistance this question no body help me understand. I buy a seat and a 70$ extra for a premium what does this seat offer , what am I paying 70 $ for"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not very pleasant; almost pretentious. One had a passive aggressive attitude towards an older couple next to me with questions regarding the exit seats. The flight attendant was short and quick to snap. This was the couples first trip to hawaii and the attendant gave them a sour impression leaving the plane. I was disappointed."
Pros: "Almost 20 hours before regular flight time, received numerous texts from airline that flight will be delayed. Some were delays if 4,5 hours then changed to almost 8 hrs then back to 6 hours . Needless to say connection flight is messed up and no way of knowing what that might be until arriving at airport. Then more confusion, too almost an hour to get checked in. With connecting flight of 1.5 hours which is scary for international flight that requires going through custom then recheck luggage and TSA line again. The saving grace is captain speed up place on first leg of international flight so arrived airport 1 hour early, thus allowing enough time to connect."
Cons: "Entertainment was boring"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Updated plane with new seat providing better leg room. Good inflight entertainment"
Pros: "I love the economy plus section. The additional space between rows is much appreciated. The planes are great and the entertainment system is very good. The crew is very nice. The whole experience was very good."
Cons: "More movies variety would be great."
Pros: "Business class amenities"
Cons: "Luggage drop off taking over 45 minutes (for Business Class) was not acceptable."
Cons: "Not sitting for an hour on the runway with no A/C."
Pros: "This is one of the longest flights in the world, but the flight attendants were cheerful throughout the flight. There was a good selection of movies and other entertainment in the seat back viewer."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Lots of carbs, little protein, almost no fruits or vegetables. Not great for someone watching their weight."
Cons: "Poor food selection,"
Cons: "Power at the seat was not working; bags took almost an hour to arrive at EWR"
Pros: "Great movie choices. Seats were ok. The flight crew were very nice and accommodating."
Cons: "I do not know why there is an extra check right before boarding, but my husband ended up leaving a bag on the table and since there is no orderly fashion and people are standing everywhere, we didn't notice. No one came after us to inform us we had left a bag. We had over $100 worth of souvenirs in it that are now just gone. Flight was delayed leaving and landing which meant we missed our connecting flight. Food was ok but nothing special. They only offer you snacks once."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Most of crew had no concern for anyone. One of the worst flights on United in several years."
Pros: "Nothing, absolutely nothing."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty much what I've come to expect on U.S. airlines--overweight, older, and sloppy in appearance. One of them looked like she had rolled out of bed ten minutes before arriving at the gate. It was the complete antithesis to the flight attendants on Hong Kong Airlines. Ah, for the good old days of air travel. Before the plane ever took off it was announced the the entertainment system on the seat back ahead of those in comfort seats was not working and wouldn't be for the duration of the flight. Having paid an additional $239 for the comfort seat in the hopes of making a 16-hour flight go by a bit faster, this was unconscionable. The food was far inferior to Hong Kong Airlines. In short, it was the trip from hell."
Pros: "Nothing. Plane was late."
Cons: "Everything. Rude crew. Not allowed to use restroom."
Pros: "Not much to like on United. The boarding was the best part as the staff were somewhat helpful."
Cons: "One nice flight attendant out of the five I interacted with. I'm flying United less and less because the service just sucks."
Cons: "We had a 15 hours flight and a one small meal 2 hours into the flight and a light snack sandwich after 10 hours."
Pros: "Everything good"
Pros: "Empty flight so was able to relax."
Cons: "Foor has taken a dive. It was never so bad on United, but lately its been terrible. Got the same food, thrice, on the same flight without any change."
Cons: "map navigation did not show a map; instead it was air speed, distance to destination, etc, Managemwnt should check out the excellent msp navigation software on air china flights from Bali to Taipei. Why not useyhe flight time to learn some geography??"
Pros: "The food choices were good and the service was excellent, Always kind and responsive to my needs and attentive."
Cons: "Boarding could be done by letting people with window seats being seated first, then the middle seats next and finally aisle seats last! That way people would not have to get up from their seats after they have been sitting down to get back up to allow the people in the inner seat to get to their seats a pond boarding the plane after the people in the aisle seat are already sitting!"
Pros: "Flight comfort and online crew were good and no complaints"
Cons: "Flight delayed boarding 31/2 hrs and then over an hour delayed on the ground before takeoff."
Cons: "Gave me the wrong seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over and over. They then changed the gate at the last minute."
Pros: "It was what I expected, a long flight in economy. Nothing special -nothing terrible. Check in went smoothly."
Cons: "One restroom was inoperative, so there were long waits to use the restroom. For long flights, it would be nice if all restrooms were available."
Cons: "stewardess hardly asked what we need and feels like supplies are so limited when u ask for water its half and etc"
Cons: "Flight attendants disappear after early dinner serving. They hid in the galley until breakfast service. For a 15 hr flight, this is unacceptable. They should be able to offer snacks and drinks during the flight."
Pros: "Great flight!!!"
Pros: "On the airplane, wonderful crews, friendly and helpful. Food was not that an important to me as much as the friendly faces helpful crew at this. Thank you UA!"
Cons: "ground crew not helpful!"
Cons: "Narrower 777 seats noticiable when eating."
Cons: "Why does the airport have so many flights coming in at the same time that you can't deplane as soon as you touch the ground? Feels like someone doesn't know what they are doing! Very frustrating! I was late to my event due to this!"
Cons: "Broken luggage"
Cons: "Crew n comfort"
Pros: "Good staff"
Cons: "Nonpersonal tv"
Pros: "Smooth landing and plenty of cold water to drink. Movie choices are good."
Cons: "Toilets should be cleaned more often."
Pros: "Great pilot. Smoothest landing ever"
Cons: "No snacks :("
Pros: "I like the crews in the plane"
Cons: "But I didn't really like the food and plane was shaking that gave me nauseas and made me throw up a few times"
Pros: "Food and service we're excellent! New plane, very comfortable seating and easy to use entertainment system"
Pros: "Flight from Calgary to Chicago was excellent!"
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable. The special meal requested was not good."
Cons: "It was awful. Flight was delayed for 3 hours because united couldn't get a pilot here who was even coming from a warm weather destination so weather shouldn't have been a problem. Poor planning. There was another flight I tried to get on but they couldn't seem to locate their flight attendants and it was delayed about 6 hours."
Cons: "United delayed the flight over for 2 hours with over 24 hours of flight time. The reason was one of the crew memeber called in sick. When we showed the flight, we were told the flight has to make another stop in San Francisco thus delaying the flight for amther 3 hours. If they know hat they are missing a crew member over 24 hours and cannot find a replacement, this is a serious problem with United. They must be running a very tight ship."
Cons: "Totally antiquated 747 aircraft which belongs to the museum. Still showed movies on the screens instead of individual monitors at the seat. No wifi and United app did not work. Terrible entertainment."
Pros: "Good time of day flight"
Cons: "Very cramped small plane"
Cons: "Wish I would have gotten a direct flight from Tokyo to SFO"
Pros: "Food was better than ever and crew was very good. Usually mid flight meal which is wonton soup is luke warm. For the first time it was hot and got hot chili delivered separately. It was actually good. Breakfast also better than usual."
Pros: "After I boarded, the flight experience was fine for a 16 hour flight. Service was great and helpful, lacked wifi but the inflight entertainment kept me satisfied. All together was pleasant."
Cons: "This flight started out a little bumpy. When I got to the gate I purchased 2 bottles of water (INSIDE SECURITY RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE GATE) only to find out at the end of the jetway, like 100 steps from where I purchased them, I had to give them up. Who would of thought, why would a human want 2 bottles of water before boarding a 16 hour flight, weird right, so that was really frustrating and just a plain waist of money. Thanks UNITED..."
Pros: "Night time flight coming back from Asia."
Cons: "Right tight seats, and terrible over-priced food. The plane seats were from the 90s."
Pros: "Crew professional"
Cons: "Unhappy that my luggage didn't make it"
Pros: "crew members."
Cons: "got delay."
Pros: "The flight attendants gave a full can of soda vice pouring into one single cup."
