Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "I downloaded the app and followed the directions to watch a movie but when I got on board I host the connection and not get back in . It would not allow me to download anything"
Pros: "The employees were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "We haven't made it to Rochester as intended. It is covid time and our flight had mechanical difficulties. The airlines has provided vouchers for hotel and dinner."
Pros: "Gate attendant was a superstar."
Cons: "6 hour delay due to part that St. Louis sent for - twice. Will never fly through ST Louis again on AA. Terrible Domino's pizza and water were complimentary after 4 hours delay. Returned to gate twice. 11 a.m. flight arrived at 9:30 PM ( 3 hr flight). Poor gate attendant was left to fend for herself as she was fed false and contradictory information."
Pros: "Absolutely positively nothing."
Cons: "Everything literally!! Plane down for maintenance, rebooked four times and not willing to spend 48 hours in an airport due to incompetence. Never flying American Airlines. Will use Delta from now on."
Cons: "We boarded on time then Pilot announced that they were working in the plane so we sat at the gate 90 minutes with no air conditioning. I would have much preferred to have been in terminal while waiting for maintenance to repair aircraft"
Cons: "Crew was terrible"
Cons: "It’s perfect"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "I paid extra to pick seats for my fiance and I and when we arrived at the gate, they had changed my seat without any advance notification"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Seating was bad"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "Communication among crew members was terrible. We had to ride a crowded shuttle over to the plane only to be told we could not get off because the crew was running late. The crew shows up and begins their pre-flight preparations, but we then could not get off the shuttle because of broken air system"
Cons: "Even with the delay I had a good flight and the service on board was very good"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "WiFi did not work. One seat had broken infotainment and one seat did not recline."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The air hostess didn’t smile while offering cookies, but she wasn’t rude. She later asked my fellow passenger to move to another window seat and I had the comfort of 2 seats."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not sitting on the runway for 2 hours"
Cons: "food and entertainment (5+ hours!)"
Cons: "They lost my bag in my layover at DCA. Even with a first class orange tag and 1:10 layover, they didn’t transfer the bag between planes on a Thursday evening. The planes were probably 300 feet away. Clearly their entire luggage tracking systems at DCA are broken. Even with 1:00 connections at O'Hare, DFW, PHL, my luggage has not gotten delayed."
Pros: "The positive attitude. The spirit of happy."
Pros: "Frequent updates on lightning in the area ( causing delays). Full service on board while we were wIting for weather to clear. Very good i flight service."
Cons: "Just the weather — so nothing anyone can control"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Not getting service even SW served on 45 min flight"
Pros: "Considering BA cancelled our flight to Milan because our Delta flight to JFK was late....we had to buy 2 more round trip tickets. No one from Kayak or BA helped us.. we were out anithet $1100. ..worst experience ever will never use Kayak again. The right thing to do is for Kayak to refund our original.tickets....since we had no control over our delayed flight but I am sure that will not happen."
Cons: "See above ....."
Pros: "The flight left Tallahassee and arrived in Charlotte on time. Better yet, I received an upgrade to first class. The flight attendant was attentive and the pilot wasn't too verbose."
Cons: "There were no cookies among the offered snacks!"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no great snacks"
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Cons: "80 minute delay"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with an efficient and present crew."
Cons: "First, passengers had to wait in the main terminal for a bus ride to a remote terminal to wait to board. The only food items offered in first class were unhealthful packaged snacks. On a flight such as this, at 8:12 am, something like a breakfast wrap would be more appropriate, especially considering the fare charged."
Pros: "seats comfy, seemed like a newer plane, crew was lovely."
Cons: "usual complaints about domestic flights - not having free headphones and not having free snacks."
Pros: "Good food, kind staff, free booze"
Cons: "Flight got canceled for over a week."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Great flight & got in early"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, for the most part friendly crew, with one exception. Flight left right on time and landed with no extra time to taxi. That was a welcomed benefit."
Cons: "No wifi on plane and no individual tv's for movie selections. Also had to pay extra for an aisle seat. Could not select seat at time of purchase. Didn't know if I called Iberia or American to make seat selection. Confusing with two different flight numbers. One from Iberia and one from American. Passengers should be made aware of which airline they are flying on at time of purchase."
Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew, good exit row seat."
Cons: "Waiting on a hot plane for 2 hours"
Pros: "Gate crew provided frequent updates about the nature and duration of our substantial delay in takeoff. Polite and efficient crew"
Cons: "2.5-hour delay caused me to miss connection in Tokyo. Boarding took a long time. Nearly one hour for my suitcase to emerge on carousel, well after all other bags. Legroom minimum in coach. Sandwich for the snack was frozen in the middle."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Pros: "I liked that we got into Dublin earlier than expected. I really liked the amount of legroom-- It's rare for me to be able to sleep and I did. Thank you!"
Cons: "nothing to complain about--"
Pros: "The crew is good"
Cons: "No comfort in the light"
Cons: "They had the wrong flight times which made my connection impossible so they had to book a later flight for my wife and I, Did not get the seats we paid for and initially did not have us even sitting together until we insisted."
Pros: "Streaming entertainment with great choices Not too crowded so got my upgrade"
Cons: "Food was disgusting... bland cheese lasagna or small wet noodle salad with piece of chicken. This menu has been going for years! Old B757 No sparkling water but 75 variations of Coca Cola"
Pros: "It was effortless... easy boarding and accommodating crew. There was a lot of turbulence so only one beverage service and no food. Would rather be safe than have crew injured."
Pros: "food could be better"
Pros: "The crew were friendly. We arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They didnt tell us that emergency seats do not recling"
Cons: "Seats packed it tight. One less row and a few more inches would be better. Shame the airlines have making more money in mind and not passenger comforts"
Pros: "Upgraded inflight entertainment had more free movies tv and games. Seats had limited recline range and were thinner and harder. Food choices were good and aisle service was typical of today's coach. Enough room for overhead even in boarding group 2. USB adapters in each seat"
Cons: "Flight was delayed one hour ten minutes due to a late plane arrival."
Pros: "Seating way too tight"
Cons: "The gate changed twice and the plane was a little cramped and not full. A smaller more spacious plane would have been more comfortable experience."
Cons: "We had to wait for about seven hours at the airport because the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Additional price for baggage , plus 8$ for a crapy meal in airplane"
Cons: "Free WiFi kn the plane was hardly working even over US mainland, before it list connection with outside internet over ocean. But it is something I do not care much about."
Cons: "Flight to Houston delayed due to air traffic"
Pros: "Crew was great and seats were comfy"
Pros: "Excellent. On time."
Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Cons: "Flight was denied in 3 hours"
Cons: "When to Newark airport to check in, crew were very disorganized and very rude. Nobody was willing to help us and everybody tried to avoid people who looked like they needed help. Worst airport ever."
Pros: "It was great."
Pros: "The friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "Sitting on the plane due to a delay with the system"
Pros: "Normal sized seats, arrived early"
Cons: "Nothing out of the normal expectations"
Cons: "The pilot didn't show up. A replacement came 1 hour later. Horrible service. It seems that United is never on schedule. They also over booked the flight again........."
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Best united flight I've been on in a very long time!"
Cons: "The second leg of the flight-Denver to Little Rock was a very hot flight. The air conditioning never seemed to cool the plane down!"
Pros: "On time departure, no kinks, good seats."
Cons: "Gate changes"
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "The ticket clerk up charged me stating that my carry on was over weight and insisted the bag be checked. When I inquired why, the ticketing agent became indifferent stating that they would not issue a boarding pass because they were not dealing with questions. Had to pay and pacify the agents rudeness or be denied a pass. What happened to this airline?"
Pros: "The service"
Pros: "Once airborne it was like any other flight."
Cons: "The absolute waste of my time and seemingly not caring about that fact."
Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."
Pros: "Food in the airplane and the quickness of the arrival."
Cons: "They left us at the gate waiting for a long time without an assigned seat. They didn't announce boarding time, we were waiting for so long and the crew saw us sitting down and didn't call us. The flight almost left us. The lady at the airport was extremely rude, I asked her her name and she refused to give it to us. The delay was absurd."
Pros: "The airplane crew"
Cons: "They left us waiting for hours at the gate without assigning us a seat. When I finally made the line for the third time, the rude lady gave us a seat. Then they didn't call for by groups and we were about to be left on boarding time."
Pros: "Wish all the major airlines would have more flight options from ORD and MSY, but all went well"
Cons: "Fast and painless"
Cons: "High fare"
Pros: "Staff and the pilot got us to our destination safely and with out complications."
Pros: "Will never fly United Airlines!!"
Cons: "Customer Service was terrible!!"
Pros: "The pilots did a great job!"
Cons: "The United flight out of LaFayette left late. We told them we had a connecting flight to Phoenix. They told us to "run". We ran about a half mile to the other gate for them to say we were too late. So yeah stuck overnight in Houston and not sleeping in my own bed tonight and missing work tomorrow morning. Not acceptable."
Pros: "Everything! It was a great flight. Everything was on time and we even landed early. Our flight attendant was extremely nice!"
Cons: "Not one bad thing to say about this! It was a perfect flight!"
Pros: "That I got home safe"
Cons: "It was a very uncomfortable ride"
Pros: "I like that I was able to get on the plane, and get to my destination."
Cons: "I was the ONLY seat overbooked on the flight. The crew basically told me I was out of luck and that I had to be rescheduled for tomorrow. In the last minute, someone didn't show up, and I got on the flight. I don't believe they tried hard enough to give vouchers away to the passengers. In addition to that, why was it overbooked to begin with? This is either a major error by KAYAK or United. Either way - awful experience to go through at 6:30am."
Pros: "I was late, ridiculously late. Unfortunately my driver to the airport had issues ergo I had issues....I was redirected to the service desk to reschedule."
Cons: "A service attendant took the time to check the status of my original flight and help me make it. He didnt have to but he did with a pleasant attitude."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over an hour, which caused me to run to catch my connection."
Pros: "Really short flight. Everything was up to par."
Pros: "Everything , great service , very attentive , smooth flight ."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Pros: "I'm not a frequent flyer so I can only compare to my 2 United trips (1 last year and the most recent) but the experience was great. Thanks"
Pros: "The crew on the board were excellent and the seats were comfort"
Cons: "The ground crew must be a little logical related to bags during checking"
Cons: "slow departure no A/C on the plane for an hour wifi broken"
Pros: "The flights were all on time, we had no problem getting through TSA, despite the fact that the airport tonight open until 4 AM for our 530 departure from Lafayette, Louisiana . United agents were there to get us through quickly at 4:15 AM. Because we were being met in Managua at noon and moving in with families that afternoon, there was a little margin for error."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "The time of departure was 5:30 AM, and I was concerned that we'd have trouble with TSA, competing with other early morning flights at a small airport whose terminal only opens at 4 AM. But the United ticket counter handled us efficiently and we were seated in the boarding area at 4:25."
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Everything went smoothly and we arrived in Nicaragua on time and the rest of our complicated plans for the day went perfectly. And that wouldn't have happened if we had run into glitches."
Pros: "I was informed all the time"
Cons: "The plain was delayed for too long"
Cons: "having to check bags that normally fit in most overhead bins"
Pros: "Regardless of product, the 787 is by far the most comfortable aircraft in the sky. Obviously you can't compare UA Economy to EY's "Residence" on the 380, but once you're comparing similar products across different aircraft, the 787 blows all the others out of the water. This is because of the higher cabin pressure, higher cabin humidity, and relatively enormous windows at eye level. Even UA can't ruin the 787 experience with their snippy staff (I almost found myself apologizing for asking for the little bag of snack mix that I missed out on because I was snoozing when they first came around) and ear-splitting announcements. The flight was delayed due to a mechanical, and the staff at NRT was very helpful in getting us to where we needed to be."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue that they had to sort out after we pushed back. This was not so bad, but they changed their minds about whether we would take the original plane or switch to a second 787 that had flown in on NRT-DEN so many times I lost count. This is why I gave the "boarding" process poor marks--please just figure out whether we need to get off (we didn't need to, but did anyway) and whether we are going to switch to another aircraft before letting everyone off. The staff at NRT failed to consider moving the DEN-HKG passengers to a ET NRT-HKG flight (which surely had available seats) that was parked next door. Instead, we were all put on a HND-HKG flight leaving about five hours later than the ET flight."
Cons: "They had us wait in the runway for almost an hour not good when you have arrived airport not organozed"
Pros: "I liked that my wife and I could sit together from Lafayette to Houston."
Cons: "Delays, delays, and more delays....rude gate crew forcing economy passengers to check bags when there was still TONS of space in overhead bins for a not even full flight. Added extra hour to an already majorly delayed flight day to wait for a bag that could have easily been stowed overhead. Service was lacking. Plane was new but no real in-flight entertainment for a long flight. Uncomfortable flight all around. Will do everything I can to avoid United from now on. 14 hour travel day that should have been half the time! Haven't had such a bad experience in years."
