Her fellow agent seemed like she wanted to apologize for her capricious behavior, but was understandably hesitant to do so. The airplane seating was cramped and uncomfortable. The rntertainment choices were very limited unless you enjoy superhero movies or a very limited range of audio/musical selections. So it goes in coach class.

Okay 4.6

Pros: The price is right. I do not take any of the extras, do not be tricked by the website that you have to pick a seat. Charging more for carry on keeps the cabin clear, buy a bottle of water in the airport and skip the in flight food service. Planes are clean, reasonabley comfortable. Crews are professional.

Cons: Boarding could be better. Why don't they load the back of the plane first? Mostly because people can't learn to get themselves on and off a plane. Get on and sit down. Then on arrivial standing in the isle fumbleling to get their overhead bags.

Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week.

Okay 4.0

Pros: Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections.

Cons: I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections.

Okay 4.3

Pros: The only good thing about the flight was the crew.

Cons: I’m surprised there weren't chickens and goats flying with us. The seats were worn out and ratty. There was no where to charge a phone or electronics. No in seat tv screen so was forced to watch the tiny overhead screen of terrible tv shows and mediocre movies. I prepaid for a seat a head of time which was given to someone else. Also quite a bit of heavy turbulence the entire flight. Not ideal for an 8 hr flight. I’m lucky I brought an external charger and some xanax. Never again

Mediocre 2.6

Cons: Customer service was very poor. I had an aisle seat and one flight attendant kept hitting the back of my head and hitting my arm. At one point she rammed the beverage cart into my arm leaving a large bruise. Not once did she apologize or say excuse me. My arm was not into the aisle, part of it was just resting on the arm rest. Crew at the gate were unfriendly and surly. Walking off before answering questions when flights delayed leaving DSM for mechanical issues. My flight on the 4th was diverted due to weather and when did arrive in DFW, I checked at gate to see when I could fly out and was lied to and because of being lied to had to run through DFW uselessly. I will not be flying American again!

Okay 4.0

Pros: Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections.

Cons: I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections.

Okay 4.3

Pros: The only good thing about the flight was the crew.

Cons: I’m surprised there weren't chickens and goats flying with us. The seats were worn out and ratty. There was no where to charge a phone or electronics. No in seat tv screen so was forced to watch the tiny overhead screen of terrible tv shows and mediocre movies. I prepaid for a seat a head of time which was given to someone else. Also quite a bit of heavy turbulence the entire flight. Not ideal for an 8 hr flight. I’m lucky I brought an external charger and some xanax. Never again

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
