Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything was pretty smooth, on time, as expected, no problems."
Cons: "The entertainment access from my device was unusable due to unavailability of downloading the proprietary American Airlines APP. I had the GoGo In Flight app installed but that wasn’t enough. A better system should be in place."
Cons: "Decaf tea"
Pros: "Fast. Arrived early."
Cons: "More room."
Cons: "More room. Screen was broke"
Pros: "Seat extraordinarily comfortable"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "If I can avoid flying American I will... on my way to Rome, 4 hours delay due to technical issues. Same plane on our way back, 2 hours delay due to technical issues. I did not feel safe knowing that plane has so many technical issues. Had to wait almost an hour on the plane to get to our gate."
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "Paid extra for free booze, but they didn’t serve booze, except to first class of course. Saying the flight was so quick, they weren’t even getting it out."
Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "We boarded late, they were unable to seat our family all together, and the seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "Extraordinarily rude staff, no information, mess with gates, staff not willing to help. Really rude and awful-worst experience ever!"
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: "Food and entertainment were great"
Cons: "wish there was more legroom"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable and ON-TIME!"
Pros: "The meals on Japan Airlines (JAL) were delicious!"
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."
Pros: "The food and the snack was pretty good"
Cons: "I paid $20 for the 24 hours of Wi-Fi and it never worked On either flight. The guy sitting in the seat behind me kept putting his knees into the back of the seat to prevent me from reclining so that his girlfriend could sleep with her head in his lap, so I could not recline in sleep on the long flight from Munich to Philadelphia. I don't have any of these issues when I fly on United. If you want me to fly on American more than I suggest you fixed them."
Pros: "No hassle boarding or deplaning"
Cons: "Cramped seats. I am a loyal JetBlue customer, the seating consistently better than the major airlines."
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."
Cons: "If all airlines would just board the people at the back of the plane first, it would go a lot faster."
Pros: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Cons: "Paying for non middle seats"
Pros: "Too many passengers, crazy lines and the food not great. Flight crew was friendly and helpful. Was great in terms of flight time. Flight arrive earlier than expect. Was smooth flight in terms of turbulence."
Cons: "Food. I didn’t like my seat, was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Even on a big ole B777 you better upgrade to bigger seats"
Pros: "On time and no hassles."
Cons: "Uncomfortable old dirty aircraft."
Pros: "New economy extra for those of us with elite FF status was awesome and made a long flight comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system on these planes need to be updated. It's really unacceptable today to have everyone forced to watch the same movie in the ceiling, forgot about pausing for toilet breaks. This one they showed one movie and then we were forced to endure snippets and NBC shows that I can't imagine anyone watching. What happened to the second movie? They supposedly had entertainment that you could watch on your phone or tablet, but it was only tv shows as well?!"
Pros: "On time if not early. Clean."
Cons: "Considering this was a domestic internal flight the crew member doing the pa’s did not speak English well enough for me to understand their content. Other crew members were clearly past retirement age that I seriously doubted their ability to assist anyone in an emergency. In fact it would be highly likely they would be a hinderence and I would have to assist them."
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Pros: "Friendly welcoming stay"
Cons: "No dis likes"
Pros: "Nice comfy plane, reasonably quick boarding"
Cons: "Philly’s airport sucks Half the mens’ bathroom stalls don’t work, doors weren’t closing, in multiple bathrooms!! The crew could have been a bit more attentive to picking up or collecting trash, but otherwise I liked them fine."
Cons: "My ticket was issued by JAL but it was printed oersted by American Air. I was confused which terminal I should go to checo in. I called JAL. i waited 2 hours. No answer. Then, I called AA. They said international. But i went to terminal 4 which is American Air just in case because it was OPERATED by AA. I was right! I hope someone gave me a correct info."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Not enough coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Lousy food"
Pros: "I usually fly Air France but AA was terrific. Tasty food, pleasant crew, even the toilets were nicely maintained during the 9 hours flight. The only thing that AF does better is provide a full array of printed matter before boarding."
Cons: "I never got on my scheduled flight. The flight I did get on, 4 hours later, was fine. But caused major delays to my train departure from NYC to Philadelphia"
Pros: "I loved everything about this airline!"
Cons: "Sorry, I have no complaints!"
Cons: "Closed gate early and left me stranded. The AA employees could care less about you. They are hired for the rudeness and indifference."
Pros: "Service and amenities"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Pros: "The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words."
Cons: "As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Not sure why American would fly a plane across the country with no electrical outlets, entertainment options, or food beyond snacks."
Pros: "You are pushed into 4 square inches. But the boarding and checkin process was much much better then the ny experience."
Cons: "Food and comfort"
Cons: "The passport check point was horrendouslyorganized as was boarding in Barcelona. My vegetarian sandwich served for lunch was nothing more than Dry bread, two cucumbers and a piece of iceberg lettuce- just awful."
Cons: "No tv screens or entertainment"
Pros: "Seats wer brand new leather on this plane"
Pros: "Japan Team excellent in customer service"
Cons: "AA flight crew very poor and not helpful, I saw one of the flight crew almost fight with a customer over a baby crib. As per my experience I had a nice travel suit that I took off and flught attendant did not offer help. I have to store on floor."
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "Wasn't able to catch up this flight because of the cancellation of the connecting flight."
Pros: "Airline upgrades were great!"
Pros: "Nothing. Again, super old plane, no screens, no movies, zero effort."
Cons: "I got tricked into spending $80 for a seat with legroom. I'm 6'6" there is zero compassion and/or understanding for being a tall person. That's fine, I'll pay more. But then I was sat in a 'special' section, the only 2 seats that are narrower than a regular seat. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do. 5 1/2 hours and I spent half the time standing up to avoid serious cramps. As a tall person I am literally getting phased out of airline seats. My knee to hip length prevents me from sitting in some seats. No one cares."
Pros: "Can't make my stars better on the survey. My flights were great. Great people...kind."
Pros: "Landed and waited 25 min for a gate at a completely empty airport ... United sucks plus the small plane for 2.5 hours sucked"
Cons: "Land then park at a gate not sit for 25 min"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Luggage was damaged, flight was delayed multiple times, baggage took forever to retrieve (and was not prioritized properly)"
Pros: "Have seatback TV and arrived on-time"
Cons: "Sitting in window seat"
Pros: "The crew and pilot were terrific. Soft take off and landing. We flew past Toronto over Lake Ontario. Great views!"
Pros: "We arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "I noticed two flight attendants hand hot beverages without looking at you when they pass it to you. Its a bit dangerous, especially if it accidentally spills on you. The Japanese translating flight attendant for flight UA78 on 3/27/19 was gruff and rude in her tone of voice. She needs some help!"
Pros: "The crew were super! Extremely attentive and always gracious."
Pros: "They gave out ice cream and plenty of snacks."
Cons: "I could not choose my seat"
Cons: "Service, and long wait to take off."
Pros: "We actually left on time"
Cons: "Had no power in the seat which is an issue on a 6 hour flight. There was no meal provided or first drink even though I am a premier member. United is so cheap and the service shows it."
Pros: "Food was ok"
Cons: "Entertainment was terrible., music not working . Small and horrible selection of films with subpar quality and sound. No where to charge phone. SAS has excellent entertainment system even in economy"
Cons: "Paying for entertainment"
Cons: "The arm rest was broken and removed. I had no room between the myself and the other passenger. Very uncomfortable feeling."
Pros: "Comfortable short flight with nice staff."
Cons: "IAH airport has the worst signage. I walked in circles looking for the exit from the terminals, and then again looking for the correct exit where my friend was waiting."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Travelled with my wife and they didn't put us together - the counter response was to ask a customer to swap seats (which she did not)! Just a poor experience, as you would now expect with Unites."
Cons: "Cold on board. Need to offer blankets if planning to keep temperature down all the time. Very unpleasant to be freezing for couple hours while wearing warm jacket."
Pros: "Easy, no probs. Clean & on time."
Cons: "Nuttin. All good."
Pros: "The flight and crew were satisfactory"
Cons: "That was probably the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. There is no room to stretch your legs or to recline the seat. To fly almost eight hours sitting straight up with no leg room is not something I want to do on a regular basis."
Cons: "Late flight and can't catch next flight on time:("
Pros: "The access to free TV/Movies"
Cons: "Everyone from the Ticket Agents to TSA, to the crew treat you like you're a second class citizen. When I purchased this ticket, I didn't realize what "basic" meant, and I will never buy one of these types of fares again. Extremely disappointed with United."
Cons: "All of the restaurants in the airport have changed to this "high-end" bistros. No fast food anywhere except the premade wraps and stuff at the kiosks. If you need food fast don't try to sit down and eat. My sandwich took 30 minutes to come out. Food was ok."
Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Seats are so narrow and uncomfortable. And we never pushed pack on time for all my flights"
Cons: "Everthing about the trip with united was terrible"
Pros: "Considering the rough weather "winds", the flight should have been riddled with turbulence from start to finish. Lucky for us, the pilot was so talented that everyone on board would have never known that we were passing through severe weather if they hadn't announced it over the PA."
Cons: "It was an old plane being retired. The leg room was very small. It had no individual screens and not all the large cabin screens worked,"
Pros: "Automatically rebooked flight was changed free-of-charge to a different destination."
Cons: "Original flight was delayed, which was understandable due to inclement weather. Connecting flight, which was also United Airlines, was either uninformed of the delay, or indifferent. Myself and two other passengers arrived 2 minutes before the flight left, were told we could not board, and watched the plane undock from the gate and fly away."
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Didn't actually fly to Indianapolis due to missed connection, flew from LAX to SFO to ORD to IND. Two days to get home from Los Angeles."
Pros: "Getting to Houston fast"
Cons: "The plane was hot! And flight attendant was kinda over it."
Pros: "It was a decent flight experience. Frequent water, beverage offerings helped a lot during the long flight. A flight attendant was very nice and compassionate when my baby cried. It was more enjoyable when the flight was operated by lufthansa and not united though."
Cons: "The economy seats are just too close to each other and if the person in front reclines their seat, you pretty much have to recline yours too. The food wasn't very good and not kid friendly at all, I asked for a banana for my baby and was denied. Earphones weren't provided unless you asked for them, but no one told you that. I figured it out like 4 hours into the flight..."
Pros: "Flight was stuck on the ground for 2 hrs because of a generator issue, so I missed my connection. The United app nicely pre-booked me on the next flight to my destination without my having to do anything, which was cool. Internet didn't work but they refunded my purchase."
Cons: "The legroom is so much worse than jetBlue (which I usually fly) I almost couldn't believe it. Because of the generator issue the flight ended up being almost 9 hours. They ran out of ALL FOOD for purchase except chips (which they didn't even offer for free despite everything), so those of us in the back of the aircraft had our choice of a bag of chips for $4, or no food for 9 hours. Also, I paid $20 for the internet for the entire flight but it only worked for the first hour so I couldn't do any work."
Cons: "4 hour delay"
Cons: "The dalay at Newark"
Cons: "Excellent, on time flight. The only issue I have is people boarding t the back and leaving their luggage in front. We almost didn't have room to stow our luggage. This shouldn't be allowed."
Pros: "nice screen size and good movie selection."
Cons: "i will likely avoid this flight.in the future. it seems like a small thing but the seats were much too hard making a long flight torture. also the air temperature ws sweltering hot,"
Pros: "Better leg room than I recalled last time I flew this airline! No claustrophobia! Much better than our overseas leg. Airline attendants were sweeter than sugar which was a nice change after Air NZ. Purchased meal (sandwich)was reasonably priced and satisfying"
Cons: "The entertainment system was nice but would like to have seen more choices (and episodes for sitcoms). It was a 5 hour flight and the wifi wasn't very strong compared to similar flights, so we were very reliant on the entertainment system."
Pros: "fantastic steward from denver to minot. funny, helpful and courteous. best i've ever had!!"
Pros: "It arrived early."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "They knew my connecting flight was delayed why did they did not give any allowance of 10 minutes"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Cons: "Man in front of me smelled so every time he moved the odor came back to me and since I was stuck in the last row it had no where else to go!"
Pros: "I wish all airlines were like Lufthansa. Lufthansa still cares about the passengers, while others only care about profit."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline"
Pros: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "On time and even more comfortable seats"
Cons: "No sparkling lime water"
Pros: "The sodas."
Cons: "Clothing stolen, over crowed, smelled, half of my seat was taken. One of the worst flights I have had."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
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: "United flight from AVP TO EWR than TO EWR was great"
Cons: "Coming back I didn't like that I had to comeback with Air Canada to EWR. They forced me to check in my carry on. I don't care about the money just didn't like the attitude thati was treated. However United services very friendly."
