Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"

Pros: "Very helpful and professional crew, despite some pretty snarky passengers. Seemed to go out of their way to accommodate everyone."
Cons: "Bigger seats would have been nice, but these were okay. Changing planes at JFK was tight due to late departure from Atlanta, but it worked out. Overall, no complaints and I would fly Delta again given the opportunity and choice. Thanks!"
Cons: "It was ridiculously cold for 2 1/2 hours. When my seat mate asked for a blanket, the stewardess said she only had one more - then walked off. For drinks, they skipped several people. I had to catch her eye to ask for one and then ask her to get my kids a drink in front of me."
Pros: "All the attention bestowed upon me"
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Cons: "Worst first class service. Only came by twice in two hour flight"
Pros: "Lots of leg room, smooth flights and plenty of notification of any upcoming turbulence. Delta did fantastic with keeping everything from check-in to landing friendly and professional. Will definitely fly again"
Pros: "Each employee on the plane was nice."
Pros: "Lots of movies to choose from."
Cons: "Delays out of MCI and late arrival, no hope for a decent seat on HNL leg, couldn't sit with husband, huge smelly seat mate, used up 10,000 miles on my account and paid higher price than current ticket price, middle seats, not happy"
Pros: "I am usually happy with Delta."
Cons: "Huge smelly person invading my space. Disgusted by his hot sweat on my leg. Used up 10,000 miles and paid too much (watched the fare go down several hundred dollars) and ended up with a middle seat. Not happy."
Pros: "We landed 45 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and we left the gate late."

Pros: "Crew were ok. Not that comfortable."
Cons: "seat need to be more comfortable"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "Flight attendant's are awesome and they always try to make your flight better."
Cons: "Itinerary was changed from the one that was booked. Flight was preponed by 2hours."
Cons: "I got bumped from this flight a couple of hours before departing."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Late bumby ride"
Pros: "Nothing including the captain who was making the boarding announcements at MCI who talked to me like I was stupid"
Cons: "My flight was delayed almost two hours which caused problems for me arriving late to business appointments in New York. My flight areas also late 45 minutes leaving New York. In both cases it was due to a late airline attendant this is increadably unprofessional."
Pros: "-forgot to charge me for wine"

Pros: "Not the wor st comfort,"

Cons: "We landed early and were stuck waiting on the plane for an hour and fifteen minutes for a gate to open."
Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."

Pros: "love to fly delta"
Cons: "don't like when they ask to check bags at gate"

Cons: "On the flight to Kansas City we had movie screens which spoiled me and made me think we would have them on the way back to Atlanta."
Pros: "Smooth ride. Delta got everything right from takeoff to landing."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."
Pros: "Good uneven full flight"
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I didn't get my luggage with me when I arrived to casablanca as I lived 4 hours away from the casablanca. I have to come back the next day to get my luggage. I was very mad about it.plus I noticed one of my luggage has been damaged so now I have to buy another one because I can t use it. It was disgusting."
Pros: "I had a great pilot on this flight. He always told us what was happening, why we had a wait on the tarmac in LGA, why he anticipated it might be a choppy flight, how to access in flight entertainment so we could be distracted. Gave us some trivia questions. Joked about Pokemon go, walked along the aisle talking to us. He was awesome!"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. But what else is new?"
Pros: "Everything was fine Food entertainment"
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed a whole day and night I was exhausted. I have been trying to get the $200 delayed trip rebate. I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Pros: "Was on time, in fact early. Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The CRJ is just very small. No room in the overheads, no room below. Seat didn't recline, all average carryons have to be gate checked, the usual. Well it still beats driving!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very sweet to my 16 month old son. The plane was clean and the flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and I wish we received a bottle of water."
Cons: "Seat choice flexibility, but it was basic economy..."
Pros: "Food was tasty and plenty. Crew was attentive and professional. Even with a 20 minute delay for take off, we arrived on time."
Cons: "The leg room and seat width seem to be less than other planes. The monitor was very touchy and hard to make it respond"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Plane was too warm. Once again I was next to a larger person in a middle seat. This is as much airlines fault as it is the person. As Americans get bigger seats keep getting smaller. Internet stopped working on the flight."
Pros: "The flight back to Columbus made up for the flight from CLT to SJC."
Cons: "This was a multi city, round trip starting out of CLT. My connection was way too close, and we missed the connection due to a mechanical problem. The lines to get vouchers were super long, and the hotel was not the best. It was way after midnight when I got to the hotel, and I did not feel safe staying at a Quality Inn. I had to walk to my room outside, and had leave in the morning in the dark as well. I was traveling alone. Please put your passengers in a better hotel, closer to the airport. I did not expect that from American Airlines."
Pros: "Movie selection and internet quality was Ok"
Cons: "The attendant made me check in my only carry on bag despite there was plenty of space on the plane for it. My bag was subsequently lost in the airport as it was moved to a different carousel without any notice. There was no food offered."
Cons: "Seat 33A. The audio output was bad. Could not clearly hear dialog. Restarting did not help, this issue as consistent got all media programs."
Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"
Cons: "The crew’s attitude. Forcing me to check my bag when there were plenty of spots overhead. Telling me my carryon, which fits perfectly under the seat, isn’t allowed to go under my seat. The crew and gate attendant were rude. Poor service. Poor flight."
Cons: "No delay. Seats were horribly uncomfortable."
Cons: "The cabin was hot for the whole flight"
Cons: "delayed and lost luggage! thanks"
Pros: "Great flying great time"
Cons: "Great flying great time"
Pros: "I liked the big 787 plane and the in flight entertainment with individual TVs!"
Cons: "Not a huge fan of the captive audience announcements for the credit card and the meal pre-orders"
Cons: "Can't fly American Airlines without a flight delay. Have to plan flight delays into my trips because every time I fly American there is a delay. Certainly encourages me to fly other airlines."
Pros: "missed this flight due to delay in transit and security between connections at heathrow"
Pros: "Never even made it on this flight because the first flight was ruined and delayed severely"
Cons: "The fact that my travel plans were entirely derailed and I had to book with another airline"
Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"
Pros: "Flight attendants incredible!!!!"
Cons: "American Airlines couldn’t make plane seats anymore cramped. Cabin was very cold with no way to control climate. If you don’t buy first class or premium be ready for very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"
Cons: "Delay out of Wichita and another delay out of Dallas, got into Tokyo 3 hours late. Paid $167 for upgrade to economy plus but seat assignment was in economy"
Pros: "Food, comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "Asked if there were any exit rows available, gate attendant wasn’t helpful at all. Many were empty but only received attitude when I inquired about it. Never had such an issue in the past. Not with AA nor any other airline. Except maybe the super cheap low-cost carriers, e.g. spirit and frontier. My rocket was not basic economy and I am an AAadvantage credit card member!"
Pros: "Good piloting...courteous on board service"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not operational. No food..only simple snack. Even willing to pay only a simple snack box is available...few choices due to length of flight being under 3 hours."
Cons: "80 minute delay"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that, I was ask to help a non English person, whom spoke French find their way to the departure area from check in. I could not understand their broken English. That I feel is the job of the person or staff trying to check them in."
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"
Pros: "we upgraded to economy plus seats and it made all the difference - just having an extra 4-5 inches made the 11 hour flight so much more tolerable than the trip to Madrid."
Pros: "New and Updated plane, great service, great crew."
Pros: "My business class flight"
Pros: "Entertainment on long flights is vast. Flight attendants are nice and are prompt with requests."
Cons: "Bags that are told will be planeside end up being sent to tne final destination and no tags are given to the riders to let them know beforehand. Workers at counters were very rude."
Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."
Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
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: "I sat next to a friend I haven't seen in almost a year"
Cons: "Flight was delayed arriving, connecting flight was in a completely different terminal = they didn't wait for us and auto booked us on a flight out the next morning. We requested our bags and drove home instead. Horrible."
Cons: "Seat reassignment"
Pros: "The actual flight was fine, no surprises. Food was better than average in Economy, crew was very attentive."
Cons: "This was a code shared operation. Iberia issued my ticket but flight was operated by American Airlines. That made it difficult to reserve my seat in advance, and impossible (literally!) to reserve a special request meal. Online request wouldn't work so I called Iberia. They said they couldn't reserve the meal, I needed to call American. So I called American, they said they couldn't reserve the meal (even though the plane would be catered by their contracted food service-go figure THAT out!) and I should call the travel agent. Called the travel agent, who said I needed to call Iberia! Apparently no one could (or would) be responsible for my satisfaction. So the message here is: Beware the Code Share!"
Cons: "Plane was very warm upon boarding due to issues with auxiliary cooling but informed it would change as engines turned on . I sat in row 20 and it was very cold during flight. Flight attendant inquired about comfort. It improved for about 10 minutes and returned to cold state . Noticed that one attendant put on some kind of jacket due to coldness . Nearby passengers retrieved blankets from their carry on baggage. Glad I had at least a light jacket to throw over me and that my legs were partially covered. Guess it's better to be too cool than too hot. Otherwise. It was s great flight ."
Pros: "Well, there wasn't any entertainment, but that's ok. The flight attendants were nice, and the flight was on time."
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Late flight, late crew, Late boarding"
Pros: "I sat in seat 2A. Excellent food and service. Flight was smooth."
Cons: "The flight from ROCHESTER to Philadelphia was noisy and sounded like it was going to fall apart... No drinks..: worst flight I've had Flight from Philadelphia to Charlotte NC was outstanding"

Pros: "Aircrew great along with gate agents."

Pros: "Landed safely. The stewardess was very nice and engaging."
Cons: "My plane took off late from Wichita, and missed departure to LA in Denver by five minutes. Despite their being several of us, they didn't hold the plane. It's 7:39 before I'm guaranteed a make up flight because I'm told by customer service that united flies fewer flights during holidays periods despite being the busiest season of the year. United did nothing to make up for the night with family they have taken from me on vacation."
Pros: "The food was really good and the service was good."
Cons: "The TVs didn't work. The one in my seat did not work so I used the adjacent seat's TV. It shut down on me mid movie several times and I would have to wait for it to reboot. It was extremely irritating and I couldn't even finish one of my movies because it kept shutting down."
Pros: "Staff were very polite and courteous. Friendly and kind. The flight was on time and smooth. I really enjoyed my time and the stewardesses were awesome."
Cons: "I really don't have any response to this question. I didn't have any food or entertainment due to my choice so I really appreciate the crews overall performance."
Cons: "Thought we were going to have to spend the night on New Jersey. Because of it. No apologies or compensation. As a result, we didn't get home until almost 3:00 A.M."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Boarding. Board by inside seat to outside seat and it'll go much faster."
Pros: "I like that the seats were more comfortable and had at least some padding."
Cons: "The gate had no comfortable seats and looked like a minimalists ' lounge. The gate agent did not actively give any updates to the boarding process."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice, unlike the people at the ticket and gate counters."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by nearly two hours, causing me to have to miss my connection. Though they knew for hours that the flight would be delayed, they did not have enough people working at the check in counters. There were not that many people in line, but I had to wait more than 20 minutes before being able to speak to someone. The representative informed me that I would have to be rebooked onto a later connection because the delay would cause my to miss my original connecting flight, and when I told her that I needed an earlier time to avoid missing a meeting, she just said "I have nothing earlier." She was barely even apologetic. Then she was unable to print my boarding pass for my connection. I had a 2 hour and 45 minute layover in Houston whereas in my original flight it was 1 hour."
Pros: "Got to flight on time"
Cons: "Everything good"
Pros: "The crew was awesome!!!! You did a great job"
Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."
Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"
Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "Everyone was great helped me make my flight on time and great service."
Cons: "Flight attendant, LaToya, was the rudest I've ever encountered on United. Didn't greet anyone, basically slammed drinks down on the tray tables, didn't say goodbye to us when departing, and was overall very unpleasant. Could tell she didn't want to be there."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great with lots of variety (good for an 8 hour fight)."
Cons: "There were always lines for the toilets. Limited leg room. Food was meh."
Pros: "Compensation with free movies instead . It would have been nice if there is free WI-FI too ."
Cons: "Twice delay on actual departure"
Pros: "Everything smooth and on time."
Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."
Pros: "Made the flight-arrived home early-good landing!"
Cons: "Racing to make it-thought we hadn't."
Pros: "Late boarding, other then that ok."
Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight ! This was our connecting flight so we have to stay there (Newark) till the next day 6pm with our own expenses."
Pros: "Quick easy boarding"
Cons: "A bit of delay not to bad though"
Pros: "The crew kept us up to date on the ATC delay."
Cons: "Weather in the DEN area and Eastern Colorado generated a ground stop in DEN delaying our departure from ICT for about 2 hours. Even with the overall delay in DEN my SMF flight was long gone putting me on a late flight into SMF. This of course lead to a short night's rest...just another day of travel on the airlines."
Pros: "It's always worth the extra money to fly United! I love this airline."
Cons: "Too warm in flight. Did not run Ac enough."
Pros: "The plane was clean. Boarding was great at Wichita."
Cons: "All flights should have free wifi and power hookups. Greyhound does this, why shouldn't united."
Cons: "Arrived SIX hours late, did have luggage which was nice."
Pros: "That I finally got home although it was 4 in the morning!"
Cons: "Delays started early in the afternoon and continued for several hours. At one point the flight was cancelled. About 30 minutes later another flight was created with a 1-3 am flight. We should have been given an option to fly this late or rebook for free. It was too late to travel at this point."
Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and friendly and boarding was fast"
Cons: "There was gooey stuff in the cracks of the inside paneling near the seams where something had seeped in, but overall, not bad. There was no entertainment other than their magazine provided, so that is not applicable."
Cons: "Never made it so I can't rate it"
Pros: "I loved the crew, everyone was very nice. And the flight was great too. I will be using United Airlines in the future for my flights."
