Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Boarding at Heathrow is horribly inefficient."
Cons: "Working plane mechanical issues"
Pros: "Arrived at destination safely."
Cons: "Erratic flight info- first it was on time, then 45 minutes late, then 5 minutes late. Plane had crumbs and peanuts all over the floor when we boarded. Flight was very turbulent."
Pros: "Right on time"
Cons: "Wife on board"
Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."
Cons: "Had to take shuttle to other side of airport which took over an hour. Very very poor experience. Also, Seats had no room pull down table."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "boarding could have been better. the plane was half empty and the lady at the gate took my bag and let others bigger on the plane. I just thought she could have use a little better judgement. It was fine on all the other flights and within the guidelines. And there was lot of overhead space"
Pros: "I love it"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "They had to take my bag and because no one would volunteer... sigh."
Cons: "I purchased a WiFi pass and the WiFi did not work. Since the airplane does not have individual TV’s on each seat, it makes it for a very long flight. I also did not like that the passengers had to take a bus to the airplane and we’re shoved like sardines in a can in 95 degree weather."
Cons: "Obnoxious amount of confusion at gate. Employees continuously announced and posted conflicting departure times. Was shocked by lack of assistance in finding new flights, alternative methods of transportation to destination, etc. Eventually rescheduled for red-eye flight the following day (over 24 hours later). Found alternate transportation. Don't feel like I could trust AMERICAN with my travel plans again."
Pros: "The lady at the counter before we boarded switched our seats for us so our tickets could be together."
Cons: "The seats we had were exit seats right next to the bathroom and it was a night time flight. So 8 hours overnight of constant commotion and people walking by. The flight attendants were blatantly rude and would sit right in front of us and openly talk badly about the passengers. One of the flight attendants walked by and literally just grabbed my drink out of my hand and took it. There was only one flight attendant who was actually pleasant and polite to everyone and her name was Kate. The other flight attendants were just rude and abrasive to everyone and basically would mock people who did not speak English as their primary language. We were both treated okay but I was truly appalled with the way they spoke to some of the other passengers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for whatever reason. Did not give us a reason why. Also boarding was very haphazard. They just boarded all groups at once to try to make up some time. Almost did not make it to our connecting flight in time"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding, on time, when I asked at the gate for a window seat, I was accommodated. The food was very tasty and the flight attendants pleasant. Overall happy with this flight!"
Cons: "It is impossible to sit comfortably due to the headrest that pushed my head forward regardless how I positioned it and removing it was impossible. There were no individual screens with in-flight entertainment and although I usually read or sleep, I can see how it would bother someone."
Pros: "Great flight overall"
Cons: "Dinner could have been more occidental"
Pros: "nothing, didn't happen"
Cons: "The process of trying to rebook using a third party purchase and a code share ticket."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very small aircraft that didn’t even have a working bathroom. All roll-ons had to be checked because overhead bins were too small to hold. Seats didn’t recline and rows were too close. Very uncomfortable aircraft."
Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"
Cons: "Late, missed connnection. Terrible"
Cons: "No tv. Small aircraft."
Cons: "Flight delayed but the airline "autorouted" off my flight without informing me. I ran across the airport in Charlotte with my 2 small kids to find my original flight still there and I was kicked off of it. Irate and beyond bothered I got nothing but I'm sorry and you can get another flight in over an hour. So my small children and I will not arrive beyond dinner and bedtime. Unacceptable."
Pros: "It was nice having 2 seats to myself, although there was a 45 minute delay in leaving, we still arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "We had a delay in leaving. People were told they could move around to a different seat because there were so many open. Then they allowed more people on so they had to get people to move back. I stayed in my original seat but others were upset and it was too much confusion going on."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8hours"
Pros: "Lots of movie options."
Cons: "I didn't like anything else about the flight. My seat was broken and the seats are incredibly cramped! Absolutely no leg room whatsoever. I am 6 feet tall which is an average male height so I can't imagine how anyone taller fits in those seats."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, clean airplane, great flight! Our original flight was delayed, but we still made it right on time for our connecting flight! I didn't realize when I was booking the flights that American lets you bring a carryon no charge, but United does not. You have to be a "Special" customer with them in order to be allowed a carryon, so we ended up paying an additional $50!!!"
Cons: "I was a little unhappy we were delayed, I had a meeting in Charlotte planned, but these things happen."
Pros: "The American Airways gate agent was very helpful fixing the problem that British Airways created. She went out of her way to get me booked on AA flights to catch my BA flight from London to Riyadh."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and the first available flight was 3 days later. BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work. The BA booking person seemed content that there was no way I could make it to Saudi prior to the end of the week. Fortunately, the AA agent was able to find a way for me to continue my trip on a later flight."
Cons: "Plane needs updating. Pretty outdated and dirty"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Disaster"
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."
Pros: "Honestly I enjoyed every little moment. I haven't traveled to Atlanta in 9 years and let's say traveling with AA is great. Starting from the check-in up until baggage claim in atl. Everything was speedy! I'm so happy that I went with AA I had a spectacular arrival."
Pros: "Nice plane, very friendly pilot."
Cons: "Delayed flight."
Cons: "Lousy food. Cramped seats, try to make you pay extra for seats to sit together,"
Cons: "Still sitting at the airport at 1am. 5 hours later. The incoming plane had "damage" to it so they were going to give us a new plane... 5 hours later and sitting here freezing. American Airlines cannot come up with one extra plane?? Very disappointed"
Cons: "Someone had been sick on the plane. They cleaned it up but it still had a pretty decent residual odor to bear in an hour plus long flight."
Cons: "Held hostage on plane through storm. Teased for 6 hours then cancelled at midnight."
Pros: "A value for the money."
Cons: "Again, narrow seats and hard."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were so crowded. No leg room. The lady next to me was too big for her seat so it was hot and sweaty the whole way"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Cons: "No food chips chips very POOR POOR"
Cons: "The customer service and the lack of assistance from the airline ground staff was horrible ."
Pros: "Very good crew. The gate personnel also made the best of a bad situation."
Cons: "The 90 min delay and multiple postponements were a huge problem. The fact that there was such a long delay that there was another flight to the same place leaving approx 5 min later and then an hour later is pretty sad. And loading from the gate consisting of walking through cattle gates across the Tarmac was slightly irritating. In the future if you can't find enough working aircraft, make better arrangements."
Pros: "Not applicable"
Cons: "Entertainment screen didn't work, luckily someone let me switch seats so I would get bored"
Pros: "the crew was great! boarding was a breeze - not a single flaw!"
Cons: "Honestly, one of the best flight experiences ever."
Cons: "more seating room."

Pros: "Ronald fight attendant made our first time to Europe trip very pleasing. He was amazing."
Cons: "nothing everything was perfect."
Pros: "Good crew, good and safe flight. Thank you!"
Pros: "On time, rare for a full flight."
Cons: "A little quicker on the baggage upon arrival would have been nice."
Cons: "Nothing extra but great crew. The seats on the new plane barely recline so that’s a bit annoying but overall a good experience for an airline that doesn’t have the best reputation"
Pros: "The flight was shorter due to a tailwind."
Cons: "Middle seat, over crowded and the guy next to me had his emotional support rabbit."
Cons: "No available gate after landing required an extra 45 mins. Not fun with a 2 year-old"
Cons: "3 hour delay. Had to reroute."
Pros: "The Washington terminals were close in distance for transfering and the gate had each group marked off with lanes, versus waiting for the agent to call your group number."
Cons: "On a 3 hour flight, you should get more than pretzels."
Pros: "Great service in business class, as always."
Cons: "Weather system on the way down, but the pilot and first officer were tops"
Cons: "Got delayed big time."
Pros: "Loved the stroopwaffles"
Pros: "On time. Didn't have to wait that long for luggages to come out.."
Cons: "Flight attendant in United just standing idly, doesn't help you with carryons. No free meal for connecting flights with United even though it's meal time unlike when you are in one airlinr all through your international flight."
Pros: "Friendly people"
Cons: "Left 2 hours late with no real apology or offer to compensate."
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "United's In-flight entertainment did not work."
Pros: "As always with United you know what to expect being a Silver Star Alliance member."
Cons: "It was a normal United flight, good, but not outstanding - in coach class - it is one of the most reliable national carriers."
Cons: "My friend and I have taken our hiking packs to Alaska, California, Washington, and all along the East coast. Never have we been asked to check our packs. I was mostly surprised, at first. Once I was seated a man in front of me had his hiking pack and two ukuleles in their cases, neither of which could fit under his seat. That's when I became frustrated. O This plane sucks: our knees were slammed into the seat in front of us because the chairs are so close together. No USB plugs. Plane was dirty, scuff marks on the wall and ceiling. There was paper in the pouch that looked like a mouse had chewed on it."
Cons: "Plane sucks. Too small and poor seats. Better snack selection."
Cons: "Paid extra for carry on,couldnt sit by my wife,no screens but even if there was you now have to pay for an inflight movie,sucked"
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "The plane was delayed for hours no pilot who is that possible they board us and then make a announcement that we are delayed for another 130 ridiculous never had a problem with jet blue extremely dissapointed"
Pros: "Couldn't get Wi-Fi to work"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Delays the entire trip for no discernible reason."
Cons: "United sent out a series of delayed flight communications times that all contradicted each other. Flight updates did not give me adequate time to arrange my plans to accommodate their sporadic updates for fliget 4132, resulting in me missing my flight after paying a $95 dollar cab fare. May 1, 2017 United failed in my eyes of a loyal customer."
Pros: "I liked that the attendant suggested that anyone who wished, could move to unsold seats! Nice!"
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and uncomfortable. And we never pushed pack on time for all my flights"
Pros: "Due to a computer error there was a slight delay on take off. However, the flight crew bought us a tasty beverage for the inconvience. Kudos to the flight attendant as she had a short amount of time to provide our service and did a wonderful job. Thank you."
Pros: "A smooth easy trip from Chattanooga to Newark."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and no touriblence"
Cons: "Why always changing gate! Almost miss my flight because of the change of gate, not that is was late at the airport... Inform your customers via email or text message for any delay, change or modifications that has or will be made on the trip with the airline. It's that easy, no body ever listen or understand what you saying on the microphone..... Henry R Scheurer"
Cons: "Bad communication between crew and guests . We sat on the runway for over an hour before them told us what was going on . The most rude and awful flight attendants I've ever had . Same thing with landing no communication as to why it took so long till the end , over all I'll prolly never fly United again and I would like a full refund ."
Cons: "I was two hours delayed from my originating terminal in Denver due to a snow storm overnight. I arrive into Houston two hours late only to re adjust my remaining flights back to Denver. Two days later. What was supposed to be a one day trip to get my kids to spend it with me in Colorado. Is now turning into a three day filled adventure in airports."
Pros: "No wifi on plane, unable to use the United app."
Cons: "Nothing special"
Pros: "Was on time, good landing."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly without any substantial hiccups or delays."
Cons: "paid entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding went well, Flight was smooth,"
Cons: "Not only the Gate, but the terminal was changed with out advance notice. I got to Terminal C- listed on my boarding pass, only to check the screen to find they switched to Terminal A, which meant exiting the terminal C and taking a bus to Terminal A. Only as I was boarding the plane did I receive a late text telling me there was a Terminal change. The flight attendants passed me by with the drink cart and never came back to service me"
Pros: "Boarding and overhead space was good."
Cons: "Too hot."
Cons: "I was horribly cramped next to two passengers who used half my seat. Crew could see this and did nothing to help. There was no way to turn off the entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was patient, plenty of room to move thru cabin! Went fast & was over before we knew it!"
Cons: "Late arriving crew. Screw up because the ground crew forgot to throw a switch. So we left even later. Got to Charlotte and United had forgotten to request a gate."
Pros: "I always appreciate a nice smooth landing."
Cons: "The caramel wafer served with the beverage in flight."
Pros: "Lots of movies and shows plus constant tracking info."
Cons: "Closeness of seats and worn out touch screens on seat backs resulted in people behind us constantly kicking and pounding on our setbacks throughout the flight. Cleaning crew did not do a thorough job, leaving trash and used chewing gum on floor from previous flight."
Pros: "I had a flight home that was good. The boarding was smooth? The crew I didn't have interactions with the only came around once. No comfort at all. No food was served and I had to pay for the television, that's disgusting"
Cons: "I had to pay to use the television smh and there was barely any space to breath on the flight. The safety manual call for bending over in your seat in case of an emergency there is no space at all to bend over in your seat. I attempted this to see if it could be done and my head stopped at the top of the seat in front of me. So the travelers safety and comfort have knowingly been compromised for the company's greed"
Pros: "The flight got there"
Cons: "There is no reason why baggage should take over 60 minutes to arrive at baggage claim at 1130 pm"
Pros: "The crew kept us feeling comfortable"
Cons: "Hated the security check in on the airport because of their lack of staff also hatted the flight we were delayed 3 hours"
