Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"

Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."

Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."

Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."

Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."

Pros: "It was on time!"

Pros: "Everything was excellent"

Pros: "Absolutely atrocious!"
Cons: "Dallas Airport needs to get themselves together. Especially American Airlines through Dallas. I wouldn’t wish the AA Dallas experience on my worst enemy.... yet another fail for AA Dallas."

Cons: "Gin availability"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for no apparent reason."

Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The planes having chargers and the WiFi working"

Pros: "The atención"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."

Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."

Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"

Cons: "More space. The seats were packed next to each other."

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"

Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."

Pros: "I appreciated the accommodations for my lactose free diet. Both the meal & the snack were lactose free and I was able to eat on the flight without problems. In-flight entertainment was very nice. I watched several movies on the way to London."

Cons: "First flight delayed 45 min, then cancelled. 2nd flight 3 hrs later."

Cons: "Baggage lost."

Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."

Pros: "Staff were nice enough."
Cons: "We gate checked our stroller and carseat intending to pick them up at the gate when we land. This is something we do every flight we take with no issue, but despite the gate agent confirming that the items would meet us on the jetway, when we landed, we were informed that we would need to pick them up in baggage claim. This meant that instead of having our infant sleeping in his car seat as we spent an hour + going through customs, we had to carry a crying baby around the entire time. In addition to the fact that we asked the gate agent told us the wrong thing, instead of being handled with care, the stroller and car seat were sent down the baggage claim carousel with all of the other bags, getting banged up. This was incredibly frustrating and a terrible customer service experience."

Pros: "The pilot sounded nice"

Pros: "I could give you specific feedback if I'd actually flown anywhere. American Airlines completely screwed the pooch, rebooked, and then canceled my flights. They could've handled it much better and we found out later from another agent that they had other flights that could've gotten us on another one of their flights that would have gotten us there on time."

Pros: "Nothing — the flight was cancelled because of a fault on the plane."
Cons: "Cancelled flight.."

Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"

Pros: "It was 1 in the morning in the Philadelphia airport and I had an 8 hour layover and there were no vending machines available and an airport worker went and got me a drink and some chips and would not take any payment. I call that going above and beyond his job duties. Very pleasant man."
Cons: "They layover was a little much and to get one with a better time was $300.00 and all I wanted to do was get to Watertown NY to see my grandkids."

Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."

Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"

Pros: "The pilot was great. Avoided turbulence and arrived about 20min early. Easy to find seat and stow bag. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Alaska airlines was who I thought I was riding with but the itinerary changed past min. Gate change and the airline itself was changed. Really confusing since I printed my boarding pass the night before."

Cons: "Could not get to Santa Fe! Had to fly to Albuquerque & arrange transport to Santa Fe! No luggage til next day!"

Pros: "The quickness at which they discovered my suitcase was missing even before I got to the luggage carousel and sent me text. The quickness at which my suitcase was found, put on another plane and returned to me the next day by noon to my home. There was nothing missing."
Cons: "That damage on my suitcase is not covered. Corner was torn 8 inches and a tear in the fabric. But it wasn't my expensive suitcase. It got caught on the carousel I sure because the paper identifying strips got caught somewhere."

Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Stingy with the cookies. Somewhat uncomfortable seating. But what can anyone expect anymore?"

Cons: "No food, no entertainment, no room for luggage, no good."

Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"

Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."

Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"

Pros: "Pretty efficient."

Pros: "Free drinks!!!"
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."

Cons: "There should be entertainment on a 6 hr flight."

Pros: "We boarded the flight pretty quickly"
Cons: "This elderly woman took long to put her baggage above so someone that was sitting a row behind my seat decided to take all of the overhead bin space, he definitely did not have a carry on size luggage and I feel that would have never happened if tsa would have noticed his carry on was too big"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "No food was served just a drink in a 4 hr night flight. (But AA never serves food so it was kind of expected) Also there was not enough space for the feet, it was small and felt claustrophobic, plus no entertainment."

Pros: "After missing my flight and zero empathy from AA employee who reassigned a new ticket - I was given 3 new times and an explanation that no pilots were there yet. Flight was short and painless -- but the scheduling was totally frustrating."

Cons: "I paid $25 fo my luggage. I don't like it next time I will choose another company."

Pros: "Great service, good food, even had an ice cream break. Awesome."
Cons: "Gate assignment was 45 minutes from the check-in area. Would be nice to have that heads up a day or two earlier. We had enough time but the extra time that we thought we had built in."

Pros: "the wine was good"
Cons: "the tv"

Pros: "The crew was friendly, energetic, educational and very helpful"
Cons: "Des moines airplanes seem to be the left overs. Old and outdated."

Cons: "You take my money for nothing yu stolen my money why why you kayak my husband doesn't travel from Desmoines he is not in system why ????? bring my money back to my account aa"

Cons: "They could have told me more than 24 hours before my flight that they changed me to a different flight 4 hours earlier in the day!"

Cons: "On time arrival."

Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."

Pros: "except for a young steward who smiled kindly"
Cons: "the other crew that served us had no smiles or eye contact. an incident even happened with a passenger that could have been avoided if the crew was friendlier"

Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"

Pros: "Easy connections, very timely and everything worked out great."
Cons: "Plane was full"

Cons: "I had to check my carry on from DEN to DSM because flight was full which I was told I could pickup at gate.. at the gate the TSA agent was very rude to me as I was confused as where my bag was, which I had to to baggage claim."

Pros: "Boarding seemed smother than usual. I had an issue with a large back pack that wouldn't fit in the overhead due to a smaller plane travelling to Houston from Des Moines, Flight attendant was extremely helpful as it was expensive camera equipment and was able to stow it so that i didn't have to check it at the door. Most appreciated their sensitivity."

Cons: "The United crew really needs an attitude check. How can someone be angry at 6 am?"

Cons: "The plane was not at the airport on time and when it caused us to miss the flight they blamed the weather instead of the plane not being at the airport on time. They were rude and refused to give hotel vouchers."

Cons: "Crew was not very accommodating. Seemed more interested in sleeping then providing service to passengers. Economy plus seats not that comfortable. Flight delayed and baggage took forever."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours due to a maintenance issue"

Pros: "Flight left right on time and arrived to the destination early - which was great because i had an extremely short layover"

Pros: "Decent room on the flight. No food or drink."

Pros: "Friendly service,. On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everybody was so friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Everyone was super nice and gelpful"

Pros: "Quick and easy. Nice crew."

Pros: "I was treated wonderfully and had an amazing times."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Attitude of gate agent, crews. Boarding penalizes all but highest level and they've demoted me since the merger and erased my 30 year history with UAL. Watched them mishandle a paraplegic passenger until another passenger swapped seats. Last choice for me."

Cons: "Tight seats, full flights"

Pros: "Stewardess was nice"
Cons: "Delayed, then when we got here no lanes to land. Seats are way to small for normal sized people."

Pros: "The crew worked quickly to get me another flight when I was not gonna make my connection flight."
Cons: "The plane malfunctioned and their time management of telling us when it was gonna be fixed was poor."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crowded, overbooked, made me check my carry on which made me miss my train. Took 4 flights to get to my final destination. Small seats, uncomfortable... list goes on and on"

Pros: "The staff was great."
Cons: "Not necessarily their fault, but there was a lot of turbulence and at one point I hit my head pretty hard. Puddle jumpers are never for tall people. I do wish they made them just a bit more comfortable to walk through."

Cons: "Cancelled flight. No true explanation. Lack of detail and delay caused me to miss other flight opportunities."

Cons: "The airplane needed to be swapped, which caused an hour delay and made me miss my flight"

Pros: "I loved it"

Pros: "Staff was ok."

Pros: "At least I made it"
Cons: "Flight attendant for United 426 to Chicago was rude, flight delayed and they weren't very helpful"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lack of updates"

Pros: "Everything's on time"
Cons: "No,"

Cons: "The snack"

Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back. HOWEVER, the plane had plenty of overhead luggage room to accommodate our luggage. We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."

Pros: "Flight on time, no delays or problems"
Cons: "Seating for midgets"

Cons: "About two hours before my flight, it was canceled after previously making an airplane switch the night before after checking in online. The I received an email while I was on the way to the airport saying that the airplane that I was going to fly out on was canceled due to airplane maintenance. While I am happy they didn't fly the plane while needing maintenance, they should have planned ahead and known of the maintenance or had a backup ready to go. Obviously it must have been something they just found, but in the big picture of things. You have to pay an way to much for a flight as it is. They should have to solve their own issues to honor their part of the contract. We (as customers) can't cancel a flight with out penalties. Why shouldn't they have to do the same?"

Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hrs after my 4 hr layover"

Pros: "On the trip from Des Moines to Houston, timeliness of flight was great. The boarding went smooth and was done quickly. The crew were friendly and courteous. Overall the first half of the trip was fine."
Cons: "I was extremely disappointed in the condition of my luggage when I picked it up plane side. The wheel was broke off and all the pockets had been unzipped and it appeared they had been rummaged through. I had to drag my bag through the terminal. I spoke with 3 individuals with United who referred me onto the next and each unwilling as the previous to help. I myself am in customer service and would never treat my customers the way I was treated by the employees representing your Airline. I would go above and beyond to make the sure that the customers experience was a great one in spite of the unfotunate incident so they would return. I have never flown United before, and I will not consider your airline in the future."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid extra money for our seats so we cud sit together N I ended up on the front of the plane N my boyfriend clear in the back I'll never fly United again y the hell did I pay almost 25$ per seat to sit together to sit on opposite ends of the plane"

Pros: "They whole computer system went down all morning"
Cons: "I haven't made it. Their computer system was down all morning. I got a pretty inexpensive flight which was refunded. Although I can't go home, all the one way tickets are 3 times the price. Me and my 6 month old baby can't get home to his daddy."

Pros: "Crew was great!"

Cons: "They lost my bag for my entire vacation. They found it and "rushed" it to me, but it got waylaid in SFO and would have sat there had I not called them. Then they said they would deliver it to my hotel. When it arrived 4 days later, they said I could pick it up and they would not deliver it. I was 2.5 hours away. I told them to send it home, but they didn't and when I flew home 7 days later, it was still sitting in Munich!"

Pros: "Everything was great, no waits, and right on time!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "That the flight was on time. disenchanted flight attendants. Makes you want to not need her assistance."
Cons: "Disenchanted flight attendants. For whatever reason, it is obvious that there is unhappiness. Not flat affect, just the look of disinterest, a look that tells you I don't care. In a customer based business it is so disheartening that the very person you may have to depend on to survive is not vested in the clientele that keeps her company in business, thereby insuring future paychecks. I'd like to communicate here that it wasn't all the attendants on either flight, but enough that it was obvious to anyone who paid even casual attention. I was flying home to California, so there were two additional flights a few days before the flights home. I never had any of the same flight attendants on any of the flight. As far as my observation of the attendants, as stated above, I think that speaks volumes. I will cite an example that happened on my trip from Iowa to Denver. I need wheelchair assistance, I walk with a cane, but not able to walk any distance. I pack a light carry-on, bring my purse, jacket and cane. I was being wheeled up the passageway in a regular wheelchair, and the man pushing me stated to the on-coming crew he "would be right back to get my suitcase, couldn't take both at the same time", and added " unless one of you could roll it up?". After an embarrassing pause, a female flight attendant said "Let the flight attendant do it. Add this to the list of responsibilities that aren't really my job." I actually twisted around to look at this person, I was so stunned to hear that! She grabbed my rolling carry-on handle and the look spoke columns. I was embarrased. Thank you. Debra K. Forsythe"

Cons: "Obnoxious crew, repeating the same instructions over and over. No food, no entertainment. Short flight though."

Pros: "Everything was great and the trip was on time perfect"

Pros: "Boarding was pretty quick and staff was friendly. I was in an emergency row so I had a little extra leg room in my middle seat. Also had wifi on this flight."
Cons: "Snacks need to be updated. I prefer the good old fashion pretzels, so maybe providing an option would be better."

Cons: "I have flown with United several times and will be avoiding this airline in the future. After notification that our flight had been delayed by 3 hours, the customer service was awful. The United representatives at the gate told us they could not rebook us nor would they be able to assist us with locating a different connecting flight. We then contacted customer service by phone and were directed to connecting flights. However the connecting flights were at an airport two hours away. After being informed that we would not be able to fly out the next day from the Des Moines airport, we. Had no other choice but to rent a car to drive to the Omaha airport. We had to rent a car because they would not accommodate us by changing our return flights to match where we flying out of. This whole experience has been awful for a trip that has been booked for more than 6 months. I plan to continue to inform the public of this horrendous experience."

Cons: "it's practically frozen TV dinner box. For a flight about 10 hours, this is making the trip extra hard."
