Cons: "more organized boarding"

Cons: "more organized boarding"
Pros: "That we got there on time. And landed safely."
Cons: "Honestly I have no complaints but they could at least serve something for a 6 hour flight"
Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."
Pros: "I was in first class this time. The seat was comfortable for the flight of roughly 2-1/2 hours. We were served a continental breakfast that was filling and healthy with cereal, fresh fruit, Brie, soft crackers and yogurt. I'd rather have something simple but satisfying than something overcomplicated and possibly not that good. The crew was polite and efficient. I did have to use the lavatory at one point and I was happy that it was clean."
Cons: "The entertainment system was down, but it wasn't American - it was gogoflight or whatever it's called. I ended up listening to my Audible so it turned out alright, but on a 2+ hour flight, it could have been frustrating."
Cons: "More luggage space and plugs on the plane to charge devices"
Pros: "Terrible"
Cons: "American isn’t my preferred airline for obvious reasons (delays, notoriously bad service, old planes, and a lack of amenities like WiFi and tv’s), but now I’ll never spend my money with them again. They took me off an already delayed flight after I’d already boarded to examine my smart bag. I know that lithium batteries can’t be taken in the underbelly of the plane and I knew my bag would likely be checked at the gate (why I removed the battery and left it at home in the first place). When they asked me if I had a lithium battery in my bag I said “no.” They then gate checked the bag and allowed me on the plane. After everyone had been boarded (half an hour after we’d been scheduled to take off) they then called my name out on the speaker. I had to then de-board the plane and re-explain to staff that there was no lithium battery in my bag. The staff didn’t believe me citing the infallible logic: “there are ports so there’s a battery.” I told them again and again that the battery had been removed and the charging ports—while there—were inert as they weren’t attached to the battery. STILL, I had to remove all of my clothes from the bag, and open every single compartment (of which there were many) for them to allow me to get back onto the plane. They were telling me that they might have to “rebook the flight” if my bag couldn’t get on. I don’t think I need to explain how agitated/terrified that made me."
Cons: "Stewardesses were grouchy except the one Oriental stewardess. Boarding was late. Reclining seats need to be eliminated!!! I paid $100 extra for additional 6 inches of legroom which was lost when person in front of me reclined. Kona Airport is nasty."
Pros: "I liked that they were on time (mostly) I liked the movie choices.. Crew were very nice....."
Cons: "Wasting money on their part for the silly little bags of pretzels......hardly worth the effort......could be a little more generous on a five hour flight.........."
Cons: "Getting the crew to fly on original date of 12/31 instead of having to scramble to find hotel on other side of BI in Hilo on New Years eve. 24 hour delay and then giving the last row of seats with a screaming baby that another group kept walking back to our section to "grace" us with such melodies!"
Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"
Pros: "Drink service- Dr Pepper. Clean bathroom."
Cons: "The seat was very hard but I was sitting in economy."
Pros: "That I was able to charge my phone and watch my own movies... That’s it"
Cons: "Better Temperature control"
Pros: "Fight was reasonably smooth. Flight was on time."
Cons: "Being able to afford 1st class"
Pros: "L"
Cons: "Legroom"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Pros: "The boarding experience was quite smooth. The flight itsekf was very good. I must commend the piolots for doing a wonderful job."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for extra leg room and had to board with Group 7. I think that was ridiculous. I was unable to connect to gogo in-flight internet network. It was the second flight in which it was not available."
Pros: "Great service!!!"
Cons: "I couldn’t finish the free in air entertainment. My flight was to short. :)"
Pros: "Nice, friendly crew. Even after a long delat which I'm sure must have frustrated them as much as us!"
Cons: "It can't be better than okay when you are over 2 hours leaving. They gave us some B.S. excuse. They told us an hour before the flight we would be delayed because they had to change a tire. REALLY, 3 hrs. to change a tire????"
Pros: "The crew was great, the entertainment options were plentiful (if you bring your own earphones) and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I'm only 5'7" and normal build, and the seats were uncomfortably narrow with no room to partially straighten even my short legs. The life vest box under each seat also doesn't leave much room for the personal item you're supposed to stow under there."
Cons: "Ticket was never issued."
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and our party was stuck for 2 days without a returning flight."
Pros: "efficiency of terminal and flight changes at Dallas-Fort-Worth excellent. valet service and complimentary checked standard carry-on bag."
Cons: "Didn't know about close connections and terminal changes until printing boarding passes. Snack offerings are minimal one almost all airlines for regular fares. a tiny wafer cookie or about 5 mini-pretzels are not very impressive. I wold much prefer peanuts to pretzels--an option would be good. The gate of outgoing flight to Bloomington kept changing on phone m messaging shortly before takeoff , about 6 gate changes in 10 minutes. Confusing!"
Pros: "Boarded in a timely manner."
Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"
Cons: "American has the smallest seat space out of any airline I have been on and it is heinous."
Pros: "It was a pleasant surprise to be given a boxed Snack on our overnight flight from Kona to Dallas."
Cons: "The ride was a little bumpy but not too bad. Can’t think of much we didn’t like."
Pros: "Really like how smooth and easy was to aboard my plane."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no entertainment at all, no even TV."
Cons: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""
Pros: "Very helpful and kind staff. Everything was on time and made for a great travel experience."
Cons: "Audio jacks were not compatible with most headphones, healthier food choices could be offered"
Cons: "They didn't even get me to Sarasota, they flew me into Tampa."
Pros: "We're hustling and hard working."
Cons: "Having to fly from Hawaii back to lax to fly to Australia."
Pros: "overall okay"
Cons: "malaysia airlines only allows one check in? didnt give any headphones for tv"
Pros: "It was quiet and comfortable"
Cons: "On a 5 1/2 hour flight in first class it would have been nice to be offered something other than water to drink. the entertainment system didn't work at all in my seat. Also, after e a very trying day, I was anxious to get home, and the luggage didn't arrive until 90 minutes after touchdown. I guess that's what they mean by priority service- first on the plane and last off."
Pros: "inflight entertainment was good; food was so-so"
Cons: "Our flight was 'delayed' and as a result had to be put on another connecting flight. Many people on the same flight missed their connecting flights because of it. Because of all the re-booking they had to do, we nearly missed our flight as well. AA is also horrible at boarding."
Pros: "Plane was good. Not jammed too tightly to be comfortably."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving. Baggage took a ridiculous amount of time to come down."
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."
Pros: "Timeliness of departure and quality customer service"
Cons: "I had problems with my reservation. Somehow my last name was typed wrong on the sistem and they couldn't fixed it at the moment i was doing my check in. I had to purchased another ticket otherwise i was going to missed my flight. Very disappointed with that airline. It was my second time traveling with them and definitely my last one."
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "entertainment did not work"
Pros: "plane was entirely too small for any hope of comfort will advise friends not to book a flight that includes American eagle, and will not use American in the future if I can avoid it."
Pros: "American Sirlines flight # AA1249. Was a poor experience. Flight was over an hour late due to flight crew had not arrived. The plane was too small for such a long flight Los Angeles to Atlanta. Took an hour to collect our baggage from baggage claim. I will try to Avoid American Airlines on the future."
Pros: "I liked the newer plane with the excellent entertainment screen and power outlets. Everything was on time."
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
Cons: "The flight was delayed my baggage was charged when I use my credit card for the flight and the plan was very small"

They came around with snacks so many times they might as well have served a meal. They had a pretty limited selection of TV shows/movies compared to other airlines, and it played their COVID safety ads every. single. time. you started a new episode or show, even if you got disconnected partway through. I also had issues with the charger in my seat - it was loose and my phone would be charging on and off. However, it was a well-priced flight, comfortable, and staff was nice. No complaints on getting to my destination on time!

Pros: "Everything! From ticketing agent to all the crew on our flight back were awesome. Thank you!"
Cons: "Small seats. Uncomfortable. Limited and expensive food."
Pros: "Good communication between once we had to re route for technical difficulty and united gave us 100$ coupon to fly with them again after our trip changed from 9hrs to 18 hrs"
Cons: "No TVs, no charger points, not a lot of knee space/leg room, not enough luggage storage at back of plane, can’t sleep in isle seat due to people constantly bumping into you while walking by"
Pros: "It ended up being united not Lufthansa and they were delayed 45 minutes so they rerouted me through Munich which made me miss a free bus to my destination outside of Rome"
Cons: "More time in Chicago in case of a delay I only missed my flight by 5 minutes"
Pros: "efficient and communicative"
Cons: "Not necessarily United's problem, but I feel like the design of the seating could be more efficient. The 3 or 4 in a row seats can be super problematic if you have to use the bathroom and need to climb over a stranger to do it and they're asleep/3 times your size. Holding for 5 hours is not fun."
Pros: "Cabin was not cold"
Cons: "Respect passenger seat selection - we were downgraded from economy plus to economy with non reclining seats! Flight crew rude - referring to passengers as “bodies”!!! Entertainment system not working. Internet does not work on most of the flight!!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "Free snacks and tv and charging sockets"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly.. a little delayed but that's ok..."
Cons: "These days, to get these kinds of "First class" doesn't seem so first class for the price. Lower the price or up your first class game..."
Pros: "We paid for extra leg room but did not receive it. Our complaint to the staff was dismissed without a care. We will be taking our business to Alaska Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Nonstop is the greatest."
Pros: "Uncomfortable"
Cons: "A few more inches of seating"
Cons: "More room for your knees"
Pros: "Very friendly flight crew. Lots of smiles and personal touches."
Pros: "I was in first class and talked some w/ the pilot during our massive and enjoyed that. But not the almost 3 hr wait. The lunch, a choice of brisket or spinach ravioli - I took the pasta - was quite good. Amazing for an airline now known for service. The wine was also pretty good."
Cons: "The wait, the wait and the wait. Economy passengers - my friend Tanya was in econ - got not much during the wait. At least she had the whole row 38 D-E to herself. I sent her the cheese plate from my meal. Even though the crew kept us informed, it was too little and too late. When I asked the Captain when the missing part blew off he had no answer. Not impressive..."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "Quality of food (snack) was just not good."
Pros: "The male flight attendant was friendly. The boarding personnel were friendly and apologetic for needing to check our carry ons."
Cons: "seats are so uncomfortable. no space."
Pros: "Friendly and courteous servive."
Cons: "No entertainment and very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Comfortable, clean, friendlier staff and newer planes than United."
Cons: "Snacks - pretzels? Fresh baby carrots would have been better, or apples & PB. Purchase food options are not healthy."
Cons: "Was delayed at take off and was getting claustrophobic sitting in the plane for an hour before a five hour flight."
Pros: "I wish I remembered their names, but I have never had more friendly and engaging flight attendants. It made the flight a very enjoyable one!"
Cons: "Food & entertainment options were lacking."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No free food or entertainment service."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and the movie choices were good"
Cons: "The seats were pretty tight and there were only pretzel snacks"
Pros: "There were no positives to this flight"
Cons: "The plane was delayed. The crew stood at the airport gate for a good hour chatting with each other completely disregarding the fact they had a plane full of people around them waiting to board. They were drinking coffee taking selfies it was ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing about this flight was good other than it arrived without falling from the sky into the Pacific Ocean. I was on the back row miserable, worst seat ever. An hour late loading. The airport crew at Kona was really good. Kona airport needs to upgrade their chairs in waiting areas they hard picnic benches. Flight crew talked all night kept people up in the back. Absolutely no ability to sleep. Worst chair and comfort ever. Barley made connection to Las Vegas."
Cons: "Take my advice skip the red eye flights and pay more money for something that lands and leaves at a reasonable hour. We had to wait an hour longer at the airport because they didn't have their crews available."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and sat next to someone who was real sick.Should make sick people wear a mask.I got sick the next day."
Cons: "When did a garment bag become a third luggage. Terrible company"
Pros: "Nice flight crew served Illy coffee as a delightful beverage surprise Overnight flight was smooth and restful On-time departure and early arrival exceeded our expectations"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "No one let the children on their flight. Should have never been able to be booked on this site in the first place. Thanks. We just lost 600!!! Never using again"
Pros: "Kind staff."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable. Unbelievable for an overseas flight. Hard plastic commuter plane seats meant for short flights."
Cons: "Late start"
Cons: "The plane had mechanical issues. they flew the plane that had mechanical issues to a Honolulu. spent eight hours in a Honolulu. had to catch a redeye to San Francisco. 12 hour layover caused us to have to pay for a rental car to get to our final destination Of Reno. I would hope that there would be some sort of compensation."
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable. My neck and lower back hurt afterwards. I do not recommend taking an overnight flight with united or do not expect to sleep if you do."
Pros: "Clean new aircraft, flight attendants pleasant"
Cons: "Bare bones, no entertainment system, beverages offered once in 5 hours, water once. Narrow seats with lots of neighbors elbows."
Cons: "They might as well have thrown us in a car trunk the crew was very unaccommodating they didn't really care about us and the room legroom is ridiculously smal. On the connecting flight, the last flight the plane was two thirds empty and the crew made us sit in our assigned seats, crammed together telling us that if we want to sit in a seat with more legroom we have to pay $180"
Cons: "Speed of boarding, no hassle with carry on bags"
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The plane was only half full -- plenty of room!"
Cons: "Turbulence (not your fault)."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled out of Hawaii because crew didn't verify if radio equipment worked , changing all our flights and significantly increasing the travel time home. To top it off, they lost our suitcases. I'll never fly with united again ."
Pros: "The person sitting next to me...that were pleasant."
Cons: "That when I explained being hearing impaired the boarding attendant said my carry on needed to be checked. I didn't understand her and proceeded to the loading blank. Then when boarding the attendant informed me. I explained I checked my bag in the airport compartment tester and it was fine. I also asked the attendant at the counter. She confirmed it was fine. Still smiling until the snack pretzels were passed out. When I didn't hear the attendant's question, in spite of telling her I was hearing impaired, she threw her hand up rudely and just continued on to other customers. When boarding I watched orhers board with the same size bag as mine, and wondered if telling someone you can't hear gives them the right to inform you at the gate that your bag needs to be checked?"
Pros: "Pilot and flight attendant communication"
Cons: "Seats too close. No food available for last 10 rows of plane. Way too long of a flight for there to be limited food availability."
Pros: "UAL gate agents were nice."
Cons: "TSA precheck still funnels in with non-precheck passengers and I had to take out my laptop even with precheck. Not efficient."
Pros: "The flight was packed, uncomfortable and not much to est that is healthy."
Pros: "Super Bowl Perks!!! & great service tight"
Cons: "As usual with all flights, tight seating"
Pros: "Snacks were good. Flight attendants were friendly."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable. Wifi doesn't work. EVER."
Pros: "The flight was good. Little bumpy but that was to be expected with a hurricane near by"
Pros: "Check in was easy. bags made it."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway because of security "issue.""
Pros: "Landing and leaving"
Cons: "I paid extra money for a better seat and it was crowded and uncomfortable. When I walked back there were plenty of more comfortable seats empty!!! I wasted $80!!!"
Cons: "Small plane, seated in very back row, unable to tilt seats back. no food no service."
