By far the worst flight experience I have ever had
Kind and caring flight staff. Comfortable flight
The gate agent (when I got off my flight from Lexington to Charlotte) had dismissed the person who was supposed to wheelchair me to the next gate I waited 10 minutes for her to call for another wheelchair assistant After 25 minutes of saving I ask her to call again as no one had shown up She was too busy talking to a friend and then left and went up to check on the next flight while I sat there I personally flag down three people asking for assistance Finally one of them told me that a person with a clipboard type device would be the one to help me I explained I had had nothing to eat in Lexington my way there because the restaurant closed due to some kind of flooding or other plumbing problem before my order could be brought to me I saw a person with a clip for type of device is actually help me get to the restaurant where I waited in line to get a table This person stayed with me as long as she could before she was called to assist another customer I was able to get something to eat then had to walk to my fly and barely made it onto the flight I have never been treated so poorly as I was in this situation I have a new knee and was in a lot of pain and was hungry I would like someone from American to contact me and indicate what Itgey will do id to compensate me for my time, trouble, and inconvenience as well as pain in his poor treatment of a customer
We were delayed in Charlotte for almost 2 hours because American Airlines didn't have flight attendants for our flight.
Pros: "They did the best they could but my overall experience was poor. It seems when I fly with AA either I miss my connecting flight, the airplane is broken, we deplane then the flight gets canceled, I’m rebooked then that flight is delayed and then eventually cancelled."
Cons: "Need newer planes, better scheduling of flights, flight attendants seem tired or overwhelmed/worked/unhappy."
Cons: "The boarding announcement speaker was broken, so the flight attendants needed to yell out."
Pros: "The flight was much awesome"
Cons: "The Frodo add more food please"
Pros: "Free entertainment and snack. Customer service was great with my bags and had options for picking up and delivering"
Cons: "My bags were not there when I landed"
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: "Americans lack of competence caused me to miss this floght"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "One attendant looked and acted,like she had just gotten up after a rough night. Never smiled, watched people put jackets and even a fast food bag in the overheads without ever saying a word."
Pros: "Very nice crew today! On time to depart and arrive."
Cons: "WiFi entertainment not working"
Cons: "Unable to play entertainment on my compatible device."
Cons: "Bush league kayak"
Pros: "The Crew was great. Very courteous and respectful."
Cons: "Better communication. Flight was delayed but passengers were not notified right away. We were notified after we were supposed to have boarded already."
Cons: "The plane was so hot temperature wise. I was literally sweating in a T-shirt"
Cons: "Bag check fee is steep for students."
Pros: "Flight to Philadelphia wasgood"
Cons: "Delayed for almost an hour because of maintenance issues. Then had to wait over an hour to get our bags at the carousel. Mind you this is after arriving at midnight. Didn't leave the airport till after 1am!"
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Cons: "Couldn't take it due to delay, delay, cancel at RDU"
Pros: "Overall smooth. No delays. No major roadblocks."
Cons: "There was some type of leak above my seat that would periodically drip on me."
Pros: "We didn’t crash, so that’s a plus."
Cons: "Boarded early despite known mech issue. Delayed almost 2 hours. Hottest aircraft I’ve ever been on. All the passengers were sweating and complaining. Absolutely a terrible experience."
Pros: "Flight had very few people on it so everyone could stretch out for the 6 hour flight."
Cons: "The original flight turned around 45 minutes in and I missed my connecting flight. AA refused to try and get me on another flight the same day so I could make it to Sydney on the original day I was supposed to land. We waited 2/3 hours to board a whole new flight, and AA hardly compensated. If anything they should’ve provided a meal at least instead of a bag of pretzels. Flight crew seemed very inconvenienced and it showed."
Pros: "planes were on time, good flight"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "After being delayed without any explanation, I was told that I would not have my purchased 1st Class seat. To add to that I received no service In economy."
Cons: "No food. Just water Stopped to ask customer service about our gate and the girl was rude stating this is not a gate this is customer service. I asked again is gate correct which was right next to the customer service desk and she said over there"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to change my seat to sit with my husband because there were empty seats."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that children sitting behind us weren't told to stop kicking the chair. They also spoke loudly when it was quiet and thus woke me up from my sleep. We were delayed leaving due to unforeseen circumstances, but our arrival time was only 15 minutes later. There was a lot of turbulence during this flight."
Cons: "That all the passengers were rechecked at the Gate by TSA without offering any explanation as to why, if it was a domestic flight, why were they requiring ID again. And checking bags."
Pros: "Quick flight, no pressure issues in flight."
Cons: "There were two delays."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. A six and a half hour drive took nine and a half hours by air."
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Cons: "Due to a flight being cancelled earlier in the day, flights for the rest of the day were over booked. Instead of getting bumped from flight to flight due to the earlier cancellation, I and 6 other passengers decided to drive."
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly"
Cons: "We were delayed 30-35 minutes due to a broken tray table, after we had already boarded."
Pros: "The sweet flight attendant on our flight was the only good thing about our experience."

Cons: "Not more sugar snack"
Cons: "Flight crew did nothing ..... nothing!"
Cons: "flight delayed by 3 hours. no reason given- effected subsequent schedule..."
Pros: "Crew and comfort were excellent."
Cons: "First, united cancelled my flight to OkC, their reasoning was because of the weather, if that was the case then, why weren’t other flights cancelled? Then after waiting in line for an hour to see a customer representative for another flight, they said it was at gate C2, we go there then the gate was changed to E10. After already have walking from gate F, to E, back to F, then C and finally back to E, was a little ridiculous."

Pros: "Seats comfortable Flights on time Good communication between airline staff and passengers"
Pros: "Poor attitude by every united employee I ran into."
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "Everything went fine no problems and it was XMAS eve"
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Good service on board."
Cons: "For boarding at the gate, attendant scanned boarding passes at one terminal and asked passengers to board next to another terminal across the room. Anyone could have walked onto the plane without a boarding pass, which seems to be a security concern. It felt as if I was seated over the rear wheels of the plane. During taxi and takeoff, there was an irregular bump that made a noise and vibrated the plane every second or so, and sped up as the plane sped up. I was concerned that something was the matter with the tire or wheel."
Pros: "It was an easy flight and smooth process. Boarded and departed on time which was great. Attendants at the gate were nice, flight attendants on the flight were nice and helpful."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "Everything the city is beautiful"
Pros: "We were ontime boarding ,taking off, and arriving at OKC. GREAT FLIGHT."
Cons: "WE DIDN'T NEED ENTERTAINMENT. FLIGHT WAS SHORT"
Pros: "Everything was great. First time using Kayak and first time on United."
Pros: "Everything was very painless from booking to flying! This was my first time flying United and I'm very impressed and excited to fly with them again in the future. I had an hour delay on departure that caused me to miss something but when I called united to move my return flight due to this they handled it great! Based on that alone I feel myself become a loyal United customer! How you handle mishaps means the world to someone like me!"
Pros: "the snack pack was a good value"
Cons: "arriving plane was late so we got into OKC late"
Pros: "Ticket agent got us on a Delta flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Terrible airline ."
Pros: "No delay! Earlier then expected."
Cons: "Not to comfy."
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "No good snacks to even pay for didn't have time to stop and eat in the airport"
Cons: "That the captain knew he was having problems with the plane and he change flights."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Crew was great, captain was a comedian. Pretty sure he broke the speed limit getting from Denver to OKC (95 minute flight took just about 67 minutes. Hey, the pilot told us he was going supersonic) no complaints here. Again, great entertainment, flight didn't last long enough to enjoy the free wifi entertainment."
Cons: "This was a 6 person row plane. As such, with three on each side and more people front to back, I lost leg and shoulder room. At 6'4" & 280 with size 14 feet, you notice these things."
Pros: "Positive crew made even requests for seat changes happy moments. Even got us there 10 minutes early,"
