Pros: "Left on time and arrived 20 min early!! Free in-flight entertainment is a huge plus!"
Pros: "Crew were friendly and understanding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 times, didn't land in ATL until almost 4 a.m. Still was charged for bags and when I called in to reschedule so I could get another nights sleep they said next flight wasn't until 10 the next day and there was charge for that. Also my flight from ATL to Boston earlier that week was delayed 3x. Overall not impressed with this connection. Meanwhile another flight to Boston from ATL left and I was not notified or selected for this change."

Pros: "Nice smooth, quick flight"
Cons: "Our gate (E38c) shared the same walkway (or whatever the place between the terminal gate and the plane door is called) with four other flights. It was a long and poorly-marked sidewalk amidst ongoing construction. The crews had to make sure everyone boarding each plane was on the plane heading to the correct destination. There was essentially nothing stopping people from any of the five flights getting on any of the five planes. Other than that, it was a good flight with great crew."
Pros: "Everyone was well behaved."
Pros: "Flight was earlier than scheduled. Crew was good."
Cons: "Nothing. The flight was 30 min. No complaints except for the guy who didn't wear his mask."

Cons: "The male flight attendant was rude and short when answering questions and providing service!"
Pros: "American airlines bad service"
Cons: "Better Customers service"
Cons: "The chairs"
Pros: "The seats in first class. But far from adequate amenities for the price paid. There are no USB ports nor are there electric Outlets, yet you're expected to use your own tablet or phone to access their entertainment. When flying across the country that's a little ridiculous in this day and age."
Cons: ". If you expect us to use our own devices you need to provide USB port or outlets. This was a coast to coast redeye,Iwas awake the whole flight. 20 min before landing announcement was made to not get up, We were not given time to use the restroom, brush teeth, have coffee before landing. Bad form."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Delays that were not weather related. Ground crew changed shift and delayed us 30 mins and then they got a strap stuck that delayed us further. Overlap crews so that u always have a crew to work the flights"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable and the flight attendant was very helpful with all the questions I had, thanks for the wonderful first time flying."
Cons: "Nothing give a 10/10"
Pros: "Friendly crew"

Pros: "Service was poor and unconcerned about comfort or needs."
Cons: "The flight staff did not appear to want to do their job."
Cons: "Had a 4 hr layover due to a bad tire. Waited 3.5 hr for them to get a tire....seriously!!!!! That’s not the only flight I’ve been delayed on with AS due to maintenance problems. Each time it seems like it could have been handled in a more efficient way and time! Very Disappointed!!!"
Cons: "Asked for ginger ale, was not given one"
Cons: "No reason was given for delay, I was disappointed in that I payed more to arrive 3 hrs earlier yet I came in after the otherwise available flights"
Pros: "Made it to destination"
Cons: "Gate changed without any notification"
Pros: "Made it home."
Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Attendant was unable to upgrade me to first class due to a system error they couldn't fix. Boarding was unnecessarily delayed because the attendant on staff was not the scheduled attendant and they were scrambling to catch up."
Cons: "the payment didn't work but I got no notification. When I got to the airport I couldn't check in. It took a lot of time with more fee to figured it out. A terrible experience"
Cons: "It was 3 hours late"
Pros: "Check in staff were very good.Lots of entertainment choices. Very comfortable seating,was worth the extra price."
Cons: "I went to check in with Iberia airlines as the flight information said. Desk was closed. Went to American airlines as suggested by airport staff, which was correct. Completely different terminal,we were lucky we had 3 hours between connections, the whole process took over an hour. Very confusing. The plane was American Airlines, Iberia was not mentioned anywhere else,very confusing. Dinner was served within an hour of taking off at 11pm, which we didnt have, but then nothing until an hour before landing and very hurried. Staff had been very busy chatting in the galley. No snacks available. Had a group of rowdy and rude passengers near us, not alcohol related. I think staff shoud have had a word with them, it looked like they didnt want to know, another passenger finaly did after 5 patient hours. Arrived in London, our bags did not. Staff were good. They found the error straight away. They delivered them to our home the next day which was a very good service."
Cons: "American Airlines flying out of DCA is highly disorganized. I will look to fly to Washington-Dulles next time, or just avoid American Airlines altogether."

Cons: "Every leg of my journey I was charged for two pieces of luggage. I thought this was ridiculous and unfair."
Cons: "No entertainment no wifi"
Pros: "Crew was apologetic."
Cons: "PHL ground stop no known reason. Good weather. Even pilot was at a loss. 4 hours total delay, 3 of which spent in tarmac."
Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"
Cons: "There was no wifi and no screen on the seat. I could not see the screen for the movie. Airline was old and also it took 2 hours to get going because they had to check the engine."
Pros: "AA provided free headphones, free movies, music, and such."
Pros: "The employee working the desk in Seattle was great. Long lines to check in and she took the time to assign us seats next to each other. Loved the bonus of the seats being in an exit row."
Cons: "Flight changed with no notification."
Pros: "Great movie selection, including ones currently in theaters."
Cons: "Only received pretzels for snacks, while others received cookies."
Pros: "General professionalism of crew"
Cons: "Food selection was poor, small quantity, and bad value. Online boarding pass didn't work for return flight first time, but worked a second time."
Pros: "I was really excited about the timely correct schedule of the flights with British Airways."
Cons: "The long distances for running from one gate to the other. I know this is for elderly people like me, and the children as well, typically a little bit hard, but a small appropriate [air]shuttle same how is a thing, on which the advanced technology has to think. (?)"
Cons: "I still have not received my luggage"
Pros: "The flight and boarding process was smooth with no issues. The crew and pilots was the best!!!!"
Cons: "Wish we had peanuts as an option for a snack."

Cons: "American Airlines holding open seats until right before the flight leaves."
Cons: "Separated from luggage"
Pros: "Very organized and helpful. I felt safe."
Cons: "Different types of snack. Nothing serious to complain about."
Cons: "Airplane temperature was freezing"
Cons: "7 hour delay"
Pros: "nothing spectacular"
Cons: "paying for wifi to access the "free" movies/TV shows....ridiculous. Miss the good old days when everything was included in the price of a ticket. now you have you pay for everything :("
Cons: "Flight to Houston delayed due to air traffic"
Pros: "Crew was great and seats were comfy"
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "Leaving on time, movie selection and an update on the delay before boarding the plane"
Pros: "The crew was pretty good."
Cons: "Wish they offered better snack options but I’m not complaining"
Pros: "Have delay and cancel my flight to dca"
Pros: "It was a very enjoyable flight. Flight attendants were great, comfort plus was great (I'm 6'5") and the food was good."
Cons: "I spent $1180 on this flight and my friends who where on the same flight and who reserved theirs after I did paid from $600--800 for their round trip. I was under the impression that Kayak gave me access to decent fares. I guess not. I'll be trying other sites from now on."
Pros: "The United staff and flight were great, no complaints. We arrived a few minutes too late for my partner to check in with his luggage so they even arranged it so that he would be able to still catch the flight but the luggage would be sent on the following flight. Definitely saved us from the stress of having to be split up and worried on when there would be room for him to catch an alternate flight."
Cons: "My complaints are with Newark airport (EWR). The AirTran took over 10-15min to arrive and when it finally did we had to get off and wait for another one which didn’t have space for everyone so a group of us had to wait even longer for the next one to arrive. A guy said he missed his flight last time that happened. They had more trains going to the parking lot for customers leaving the airport than they did for people catching their flights! Then there was only one security check in line, even for expedited check in. Despite allocating extra time for our overall commute, we still made it right on time for boarding so make sure to give yourself PLENTY of time when dealing with EWR."
Pros: "Love this direct flight! So nice!"
Pros: "Delays were clearly communicated with ample time to make changes if necessary"
Cons: "TEEEEENY WEENY itty bitty plane - hard to be comfortable- but fortunately it was a short flight"
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."
Pros: "None, Zero..."
Cons: "I did not like how we were treated by the United Airline Crew front desk when we were getting our boarding pass, they immediately say that due to myself having a Philippine Passport and A US Green Card holder they needed to check with Japan Immigration and in the end of waiting they said that we can’t board the plane because of my citizenship status and I needed to get a Japan VISA, I felt discriminated for something I do not know about when I purchased the tickets via online it doesn’t even show if there were any requirements needed in order for me to travel to Japan. My overall Review is a big ZERO and Unsatisfactory of how they treat their customers."
Pros: "I liked that the ground crew did an excellent job in boarding the flight even though it was completely full."
Cons: "I felt it took too long to retrieve luggage in Newark. The onboard food options were overpriced."
Pros: "They were able to change my seat location from middle to an exit aisle seat, nice."
Cons: "No food choices"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Seat too narrow and not enough leg room"
Cons: "3 delays, but United refused to cancel the flight which would allow the passengers to rebook. Pilots were dismissed and we were given vouchers to the worst motel that I have EVER stayed in. Since I had to be in Washington the next morning, I purchased a $600 ticket online after the gate agent told all of the passengers that United could not get them to D.C. until the next evening. To top it off, they used the same plane with mechanical problems the next morning, which caused further delays. Terrible and costly."
Pros: "On time departure, no kinks, good seats."
Cons: "Gate changes"
Pros: "No flight delay"
Cons: "Food, Wi-Fi, entertainment"
Pros: "The flight crew tried to make the best of a bad situation."
Cons: "We paid good money for first class tickets expecting to get a hot dinner meal on the flight so we had not eaten. By the time the flight was allowed to take off, the dinner onb the flight had sat too long and they were not allowed to serve it. They gave us a coupon for $20 buck to eat dinner at San Francisco airport upon arrival but of course no restaurant is open at 2:00 am."
Pros: "The seats were somewhat comfortable."
Cons: "Almost nothing was included with the ticket purchase."
Cons: "I had ear ache probably caused by the pressure"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Coffee was great."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Doesn't look like it's been thoroughly cleaned in ages. My seat was broken. Had to sit upright the entire trip. Bathroom door wouldn't stay closed."
Pros: "The crew was great....they spoke english n spanish...very warm group"
Pros: "Staff and the pilot got us to our destination safely and with out complications."
Pros: "Polite, professional and kept us informed"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly!"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight slept through the flight"
Cons: "The delay of the flight"
Pros: "Wow- I was flat out told by the supervisor that "you used a travel agent, Kayak, how is this United's problem? This supervisor then confirmed that my 30 min connection was "on the screen, if you don't like it you shouldn't have booked it, since you used an agent we are not doing anything and it's not our problem". Offered to move me to the earlier flight for $775 per ticket. For a 2 hour flight that was only one leg and also same day. Disgusting people."
Cons: "The first two agents didn't understand what I was asking when I asked if we could switch to an earlier flight. Both, yes both, told me there were no seats available when I saw 4 first class seats on line. By the way, did I fail to mention that I had booked 2 International full fair first class tickets? To be treated like they were doing me a favor."
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: "The flight was pretty smooth and we made up some lost time from the delays."
Cons: "This is touted as one of the newest in United's fleet. I've flown on this plane twice in the last month and the seats are the worst. They are hard plastic (feel flimsy), and have very little padding. The recline is almost nonexistent. Both times I've come off the plane with my backside feeling numb."
Pros: "Nice crew, quick boarding, quick service."
Cons: "Only thing they lacked was entertainment. You could download an app for everything, but there were no plugs to charge your device."
Pros: "Absolutely no delay. Great assistance provided by flight attendants to ensure that everyone quickly secured their hand luggage."
Cons: "No issues to complain about"
Pros: "Got upgraded to Economy Plus ... how nice to have some extra legroom on a long flight! LOTS of movie options for the 6 hour flight."
Cons: "I got the last row, it smelled like pee from the very beginning and couldn't put back the seat because it was to close to the wall. It was a very early flight and I was super tired, the ac wasn't working correctly, it was hot."
Pros: "Really short flight. Everything was up to par."
Pros: "Seat itself was comfortable."
Cons: "Out of several beverage options. TV was not working at my seat. Seats also a little cramped. Boarding seemed disorganized."
Pros: "i am glad they had entertainment"
Pros: "The flight is on time."
Pros: "Standard average flight"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destination"
Cons: "the boarding process was cumbersome. My seat didn't recline as it was immediately before an exit row, which was located in different rows according to the seating plan available when purchasing my seats online."
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"
Cons: "The seats on the flight from LAX to ORD are built for people who are under 6' tall. You need to disclose the fact that your seats cannot accomodate a person who is 6'2" and 200 lbs. or you will need to accept medical responsibility for the damage done to a persons musculoskeketal system."
Pros: "Crew was attentive. My seat was taken by someone else but crew helped me find another seat. (Which was fine by me). Pilot kept passengers in formed of weather conditions and bumpy ride."
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: "Crew were gracious & helpful. Plane left and arrived on time. Frequent offers of beverages."
Cons: "There was no space for legs and feet. Rows are too close together in economy. Only my left foot could extend forward - a metal box was bolted to the floor where a right foot would go. Seatback pockets with magazines, headphones, etc take space that knees require. Then when my front neighbor fully reclined for 7 hours, I was really pinned in (middle seat of center section). It can't be healthy to be physically restricted for so long. Very uncomfortable. Ryanair seats packed this close (for much shorter flights) don't seem to have floor obstruction, and eliminate the pockets and recline features which helps."
Pros: "Smiles and service"
Cons: "Limited leg room"
