Pros: "How does one describe spending 10+ hours in a metal tube approximately 18 feet wide at 30,000 feet with 300 of your closest friends breathing the same air while having the seat in front of you pushed back so you cannot adequately see the passenger monitor because it's too close to focus on as your knees are under your chin? Flying in "steerage" is not comfortable as humans get larger and airplane seats get squeezed smaller. Please unsqueeze! Cabin crew members were excellent. Other than that, Europe was great!"
Cons: "See other side."
Cons: "Flighted delayed due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting 400pm flight. Next flight was 10:25 pm."

Cons: "Unbearably hot!!"
Pros: "See above."
Cons: "Nothing. Really."
Cons: "Platinum member. Flying with gold colleague. He was upgraded. I was 1 on the list, wirh 3 openings. Asked gate agent, and she said just take my seat. Asked attendant, she said same. So spent flight in last seat in back next to bathroom, while 2 comfort + seats were empty. Did not feel like a valued customer."
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Pros: "Quiet, quick, no issues"
Cons: "Slow boarding. Slowest boarding everr. Maybe not enough overhead space, doesn't make sense how there is not enough overhead space while calling zone 2 passengers."

Pros: "The crew was very warm and friendly."
Pros: "Crew were excellent"
Cons: "Flight delayed 45 minutes"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats that are far too close for tall peolle"

Cons: "You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387"
Pros: "On time and courteous staff"
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Pros: "Good Entertainment"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours with no explanation from Delta or any information. Once boarding finally began, another 30 min went by before they closed the plane again without any explanation. As a connecting flight after a long international flight, it was awful. Unfriendly and impatient staff."
Cons: "We were waiting until the airport assigned us a parking slot. Instead of leaving the entertainment system on, they turned it off. We basically spent 1.5h without entertainment system."
Pros: "The only positive of this leg is that it was less infuriating than the flight from RDU to Boston"
Cons: "Delta's partnership with Go Jet seriously compromises the legacy carrier's reputation. I am a Delta fan - although flexible enough to use other choices when necessary. I will no longer fly a Go Jet operated leg when other choices are available. For my trips to Boston, that means Jet Blue. Sorry Delta. I'll see you back on a true Delta route."
Cons: "As usual, a small space on a full flight. Pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "We flew 1st class and this was out first time on a 767. Wow! Amazing seats that recline as well as foot rests that extend. USB and electrical outlets, bigger tray tables, massaging seats, etc. I had a special meal request and the flight attendant was very professional and pleasant about it."
Cons: "Nothing. It was great!"
Cons: "You guys lied to us , you said I was getting first class flys , and it didn't happen . I'm really disappointed and I would never again get a flight with you guys!"
Cons: "The seat was not a flatbed. It was an old fashioned first class seat but with absolutely awful knee room---possibly as little as 28-30 inches. It was very difficult for the person next to the window to get out to the aisle, even when the person in the aisle seat was not sitting there. The biz class cabin was shared with economy comfort. The crew gave no explanation for the switch in aircraft, and no apology either."
Pros: "I love deltas crew. Quick service and they let you sleep. Very efficient boarding. Excellent."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Arrival time is better than before."
Pros: "Even with a 90 minute delay getting out of Seatac caused because some one checked their luggage but didn't get on the plane, Delta made sure that everyone made their connecting flights in Tokyo. In my hurry I left a charging cable on the late flight but right after I got settled on the next flight, and before I'd even figured out that I'd left it, a Delta attendant handed it to me."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Movie selection, clean plane"
Cons: "Rude passengers that do not respect personal space even after notifying a flight attendant."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "Entertainment options were awesome, and we had charging stations too! Made flying very comfortable and passed the time well. Also, the boarding process was super quick."
Cons: "Nothing, we were very happy."
Pros: "Nothing. You’re horrible."
Cons: "You could have been on time. You could be accountable. You ruined my wife’s 40th birthday by failing to fulfill you’re end of the deal."
Pros: "Very nice crew today! On time to depart and arrive."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"
Pros: "The seat was So so"
Cons: "My food was cold had to send it back"
Cons: "This flight, along with the bulk of AA flights, were cancelled, leaving me stranded and missing work meetings."
Pros: "Boarding was fine and crew were friendly with one exception. The in flight entertainment is great idea, except that the wifi went down mid flight, mid movie."
Cons: "First and foremost seats are very uncomfortable. Would expect American to realize that passengers will be sitting for 9 hours and the seat needs to have some cushion. Could not get comfortable so could not sleep. Most of the crew were friendly and courteous, but was the 1 who was less so. Wifi quit"
Pros: "Wifi was semi-fast and reasonably priced; crew was friendly."
Cons: "No seatback TVs."
Cons: "Extra food."
Pros: "I think everyone was traveling for the holidays and was cheerful, made for a good flight!"
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "Boarding from Dallas was very good but when landed in London there was no service provided to me as I requested. I asked for wheelchair and help claiming my luggage due to health problem but when I asked at the airplan gate if some body will help me the answer was wait over there with a rude way and ended by walking to the passport area and claiming my bags by my self, my bags was not there and I was going back and forth to follow directions been given to find my luggage. I was very exhausted and tired and asked people around me for help."
Cons: "There was no help at all especially from the British airway. Unlikely there was very rude answer by telling me if you need help you can hire somebody to help you at claiming bags area. This answer was not expected at all and I was very disoppointed as I made a request to have a wheelchair from London. This request was ignored in London. I was very tired and placed my self to a risk of injury because I hade recent surgery to my right shoulder. As a British air way and this was my first experience I will think carefully next time to use this service again. One of my luggage was damaged and this bag was new and this was my first time to use it they told me at customer service this just a scratch and there is no liability for this kind of damage. hopefully some body can investigate this and do something"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Grabbed me a blanket. Did not mind the small plane."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Cons: "Seats and space"
Pros: "I appreciated that they were interested in the general welfare of the whole craft in the midst of storms."
Cons: "The long delays, the cancellation near midnight, the long lines to what I thought was going to be some type of reimbursement for all the inconvenience at now having to find lodging for the evening, spend an entire day back at the airport, and transport myself from the NEW airport they made available for me from the original airport I had chosen. Absolutely NO compensation or reimbursement due to "weather." While I understand they can't control the weather, this is literally one of the greatest elements in their company. They should have provisions FOR it. Running out of airlines I could trust and rely on, and thought American would deliver. But No, not even this one. Extremely disappointed and staying away from AA."
Cons: "Terrible airplane food"
Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "I have to say, I’m a medium sized 6 foot guy, but I felt very uncomfortable in the seat with another 6 foot man to my right. I felt like I couldn’t use rest my shoulder, since he was using the armrest. i know this is a calculated decision made by very high ups, but the seats just need more comfort. I was even in an exit row, which has more legroom in comparison, but the actual seat was almost painful."
Pros: "How fast they had us in the air (5 min early)."
Cons: "In their rush to leave, they didn't communicate with the on board crew about overhead bins and I was forced to check a priceless item that I purposely wanted with me in the cabin. The overheads were empty above my own seat. I wasn't allowed to go back and reclaim my bag because they had already taken it. And they were completely indifferent to my situation, which isn't surprising given they didn't understand the value of my item. Thus, I had a full blown panic attack for my entire 2 hour flight, my medicine being one of the items also in my now checked bag. It was too late, my bag was taken and thrown under the plane by the time it struck. And the flight attendants also had on perfume that brought on a tension headache due to my sensitivity to scents. Considering they work in a recycled air tube, this seems like a vast oversight on their part and should consider that not everyone can handle even the faintest of perfumes. It may not seem like a big deal to them, because mental illness is still seen as a made up thing, but it was enough of a trigger that I will not fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Food was terrible and the audio was broken for the entire plane and couldn't watch the movie they played on the flight."
Pros: "Plane had mechanical issues. Say on plane for 50 minutes before taking off"
Cons: "Our luggage was ruined and our stuff inside in bubble wrap was smashed to bits!"
Pros: "This was a horrendous experience."
Cons: "I've had flights canceled before, but clearly American Airlines/ JFK is not equipped to manage. American Airlines online hung up on me after 24 minutes of being on hold. I waited in line for 2 hours to get on another flight home and the attendant first suggested to fly me to Charlotte then Cleveland where I would arrive a day late after I'd been traveling with my elderly parents for 24 hours. Additionally, once we changed flights and had to go to Newark, it took an hour to print (yes, print) our new itineraries for United and then when the cab should have arrived immediately, we waited 45 minutes. I was displeased."
Pros: "Comfortable and food was great So was the service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."
Cons: "3 hour delay. Old plane."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The smell of the bathroom"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "It was very cold, even with my vent closed and wearing a sweater. The food did not taste very good. One of the flight attendants (middle aged Caucasian male) was rude with an overall dismissive demeanor. For example, I requested water and he handed me a cup of warm water while giving everyone else around me a cup of ice with their beverage without being asked."
Pros: "Quick time in boarding and exiting plane in Charlotte."
Cons: "Frustrating to pay extra for priority boarding so they don't require that my carry on be checked which requires me to take half of my luggage and shove it in my backpack to make sure that it lands with me."
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Pros: "Ok time flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work in all stops"
Pros: "Nice trip...no stress"
Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."
Pros: "Good pilot...smooth landing."
Cons: "snacks and lack of in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Equipment was an A330. I was seated in Row 11 and had priority boarding. As a result, I had considerable leg room and not trouble finding overhead space. Seating in the back has several inches less "pitch" between seats. A330s provide a very smooth ride."
Cons: "Food: Salad was good, you could taste the arugula. Chicken, once you scrape off the barbecue sauce, was decent. The rest of the lunch did not seem worth eating. The best option if you are hungry is to either eat in the terminal or bring something you do enjoy with you. The movie selection had nothing you likely have not seen already. Be aware that sometimes PHL moves slowly. We waited over 5 minutes for the plane door to open. Bags took about 40 minutes to come up. There were no lines at immigration. Connecting in less than 2 hours can be iffy."
Pros: "Person at the ticket desk was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough people to help all of the travail let's"
Cons: "Only pretzels were served. Crew was very nice. Friendly too!"
Cons: "Plane delayed, had to switch to new plane which was after two hours"
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "The flight was on timely"
Cons: "The staff was very informative"
Cons: "Not good my carry on bag they send it under and they said I get it at my final destination"
Cons: "The flight was operated by American Eagle, on a small regional commuter jet. We had to board from the tarmac and climb a steep flight of stairs to board. Not advisable for anyone with limited mobility."
Cons: "900$ flight change"
Cons: "They changed our gate four times and delayed our flight two hours. Got in after midnight and wasn't able to pick up my rental car."
Pros: "Crew amazing, space great."
Cons: "Security line"
Pros: "Crew was great and I really like the text updates on landing for my new gate with directions on how to navigate Dulles."
Pros: "Flight attendants were absolutely amazing!!!!! They made the trip very enjoyable!"
Cons: "Very turbulent day."
Pros: "The flight was fast and empty."
Cons: "Don’t cancel my trip 24 hours after I booked it."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Hard seats"
Cons: "Long wait time"
Pros: "waived entertainment fees for our flight; crew at gate & in flight were friendly and helpful; stoopwafel instead of the typical peanuts or pretzel as a free snack; got us to our destination safely"
Pros: "Snack menu, the plane was moderately clean compared to the last. Good communication about late flight."
Cons: "Staff was mostly rude, tired. The plane was 30 minutes late due to weather. Internet would not work, the captain kept trying to reboot it, no entertainment. An older plane in moderate disrepair. Economy seats were much more uncomfortable than American Airlines."
Cons: "delayed in piecemeal by 6 hrs before move to another gate. than mechanical delay and then cancelled. Arrived at hotel after midnight without food or drink. Substitute flight was next day noon - original offer was for late afternoon flight! That flight had poor service. Attendant dawdled so there were no drinks served."
Pros: "The crew were excellent. They exhibited good customer service and was pleased by their recycling initiatives."
Pros: "My legs were very uncomfortable to sit"
Cons: "seats were too close"
Pros: "Boarding and nice crew."
Cons: "Pretzels for snack, nuts would be much better, uncomfortable seat by window and no entertainment!"
Pros: "One flight attendant who went above and beyond to compensate for the airline having prepared a vegetarian meal option"
Cons: "Called ahead to secure a vegetarian meal option for a 6-hr flight and the meal was promised. Once on flight it was explained to me that vegetarian option was not offered on this flight. If customer rep would have explained that, u would have taken measures to bring along a prepared meal for myself. Not okay."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Pros: "The plane landed safely"
Cons: "The whole culture around United is aggressively unfriendly, a fitting description would be "the dark skies of united" it seems like their employees (crew,ticket agents, gate crew etc) are miserable and grudgingly go through their paces"
Pros: "Crew at counter n on plane were great. Perfect. Couldn't ask for more."
Cons: "Flight was at 0700. Delayed until 0831 then 0900. Then we were taxi-ing for an hour. Didn't depart until a little after 1000."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "There was no type of entertainment and the plane was small. I thought it would have been bigger"
Pros: "Attentive, polite and efficient staff."
Cons: "No TVs. No reason planes shouldn't be upgraded"
Pros: "We left on time, and arrived early."
Cons: "No down side."
Pros: "kept us advised on why we were delayed. somethings are out of your control abbr I understand that"
Cons: "one of the crew members was not so friendly."
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "The last 5 times I have flown united I have either been cancelled or delayed to the point that I miss my connecting flight aND get to the destination. 24 hours later I will NEVER book a united flight again"
Pros: "Despite the lack of entertainment options, the ability to upgrade to economy plus made my flight comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment on board, and you need a plugin installed on your mobile device to make their streaming service work, which I didn't have."
Cons: "No tv or movies"
Cons: "My experience on this flight was not good. The crew was not really quite friendly in my opinion. Then my luggage did not arrive with me in the same flight. When it eventually showed up the next day it was damaged. The Agent at the counter was very unfriendly and unhelpful- he essentially said "if you read the fine print on your ticket purchase, you'll see that external damages are not covered by any airlines ". Sad!"
Pros: "Short direct flight"
Pros: "We found a new flight"
Cons: "The fact they did very little to accommodate the cancellation"
Pros: "The crew to LA was nice! The crew to Houston seemed tired and needed a break or some days off. Or maybe the just got back to work and weren't ready."
Cons: "United is a pretty decent airline. What they probably DON'T have control over is so many children on a flight. I understand that, but honestly the flight to Houston sucked with whiny kids. What they CAN control is the overbooking of flights. I notice that the flights to LA are often overbooked. It's a bit annoying when waiting to board a flight and constantly seeing the overbooked notification asking people to volunteer their seat. It's not the first time."
Cons: "Flight turned around and I was merely given a voucher for a hotel. This was united's fault; it was not caused by weather. Now I'm responsible for paying $80 for a hotel room. I'm furious. I will never fly united again."
Cons: "It was a small, commuter plane and everyone was to gate check any carry-on that wouldn't fit under the seat, like rolling bag. My neighbor did not check his and took up more than half of my leg room. He was NOT friendly and I was not willing to anger him by complaining. But he should not have been allowed to bring it on board. This was a United flight, not Lufthansa."
Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."
Pros: "Texts about delays"
Pros: "Same as Co's to Houston"
Pros: "The flight was short once we finally got in the air."
Cons: "Waited forever for plane to arrive. Waited for repairs. Once boarded, waited for more repairs. Supposed to leave at 12:30pm; left at 4:30pm."
Pros: "Very smooth check in."
Cons: "The seating being assigned is a bit strange. My husband and I booked our seats together but were assigned separate rows. Luckily people switched with us."
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was cancelled. Put on standby for the next flight and was too far down the list for that to be useful. Scheduled for a later flight it too was cancelled."
Cons: "The entire experience. I have no intention of flying United again and will not recommend to other travelers."
Pros: "Videos on United flights kept getting re-started"
Cons: "When traveling with a service animal, it's kind of a given that I would be seated where there would be room for my dog. My dog is 70 pounds. There was no room for him to sit in front of me. The flight attendant just says "he can't sit in the isle". I asked her where would you like him to go? She says "not in the isle". A 2nd attendant was able to move me to a front row where there was space for him to sit on the floor in front of me."
Pros: "I flew from Manchester NH to Miami with a layover in Newark. I had 7 people in my group with three of them being children. I did not choose seats before departure date and when we arrived at the airport we found that we were all in separate seats. The attendant noticed this and immediately moved people around to make sure the children were sitting with an adult. It was a small commuter plane so I was very surprised anyone would change seats. Thank you United for a great experience"
Pros: "This crew is probably the best I've experienced traveling this route in years. They were professional, attentive, gracious and friendly. I was just thinking what a joy to watch them interacting with different people from the nice ones to the difficult ones. You guys rock"
Cons: "Explanation for the delay in boarding"
Pros: "Left on time,luggage not missed and good landing"
