Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"

Cons: "Need to have handheld device to watch entertainment. Terribly uncomfortable. Delay getting out of Dallas."
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."
Cons: "The flight attendants were the best"
Pros: "The crew at the airport was outstanding .. getting out of their way to help us"
Cons: "The flight is delayed for 5 hours without any compensation"
Pros: "Seemed like a tiny bit more leg room, lots of good movie choices."
Cons: "Food was bleh."
Pros: "on time, even a little early"
Pros: "The food was pretty good."
Cons: "They had no accommodations for our baby, and didn’t let us board first. It was an old plane with basic entertainment, TVs above the middle row and not all do them worked. It was particularly freezing on board. Some of the crew was nice but overall not very friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing."
Pros: "Pilot sounded nice"
Cons: "Airline Attendant ride. Not 2 me. I stayed away from her seeing how she talked to other patrons. Yelling “get with the program. I’ll be watching you” for simple mistakes made before door of plane closed. Tried to talk elderly woman out of tea because she was lazy and didn’t bring hot water on her cart. Eventually brought it but why try to talk her out of it. Heavy set dark brown tall Attendant on flight 5874 Mesa Airlines. Lost my luggage. More and more friends, family & 1 flight expert says AA gets more complaints. Will try booking with another airline carrier in future unless absolute emergency to take AA. Worth $40.00 or more extra to get friendly service."
Pros: "Great wifi. Nice comfortable seating. Great entertainment selection"
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"
Cons: "Boarding is always awkward on any airline. If you boarded back to front and deplaned front to back, time and aggravation would be reduced."
Pros: "Friendly welcoming stay"
Cons: "No dis likes"
Pros: "I've recently had problems with other airlines in the past few years. It seems that flight attendants get more and more rude by the day! I had nothing but a pleasant time on both these flights though. Everyone was cordial and respectful!"
Cons: "Don't have a conplaint."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to text via free WiFi in the sky. Oddly, this same service is unable to be acquired, once you’re in the United States. Leave it to Mexico, a beautiful country that’s struggling with so much poverty, to offer up free internet service instead of some silly $20 per flight deal which occurs once you cross into (at least on the surface) the wealthy, not so poverty stricken, USA! AMERICA! America, the same America that the side of the plane you’re flying in, is so proudly representing. Rich, powerful, fair America needs the extra $20!"
Cons: "I loved all of it. I have nothing to complain about. Thanks for a great experience!! Except, if there’s any way that I can extend a complaint about the Cozumel airport... I was SO disappointed that they no longer carry those delicious Doritos, that can only be found in Mexico. Their stores stopped carrying them and I nearly died of sadness! Just kidding guys. I had a great experience and I love Cozumel airport. It’s one of my favorites, honestly."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze"
Cons: "I miss my flight because my plane left “early.” The person who attended me wasn’t understandable at all, she responded with so much rudeness. Was very upset!"
Pros: "I was truly surprised by how smooth the entire experience was on this flight. The crew was excellent and the flight was on time!"
Pros: "I survived the flight."
Cons: "Missed connection Uncomfortable Rollercoaster flight"
Pros: "Outlets, great entertainment choices, quick boarding"
Cons: "Connecting to LAX through Toronto was frustrating. We were told in Dublin that our bags were checked all the way through to LA and they weren't. (Been through Toronto before and thought maybe they had changed the procedure) Airport signage could be improved to accurately inform of baggage pickup and drop off with your connecting air carrier. (Our traveling companions ended up missing the flight home in the confusion.) The airport is going through renovations, maybe it will improve. The flight to LA wasn't stocked properly with food. They ran out of sandwiches/fruit and cheese plates by the first few rows in the main cabin. No earbuds available for those who needed them. Cramped seating. This flight was with BA partner American Airlines"
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: "That I was found an alternative flight and was boarded swiftly."
Cons: "That my flight was delayed four hours or more and then cancelled so I had to be transferred to a totally different flight in the early hours of the morning and that my luggage was delayed and travelled on a different flight to mine. The entire experience was very discouraging."
Pros: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Cons: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Pros: "Attentiveness of Gate personnel Punta Cana airport and of the flight attendants. The entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of variety in food options during flight."
Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"
Cons: "bought ticket online for an Alaska Airlines flight 3 weeks prior to flight online, picked seat, too. When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Slow on return of gate checked bags. A little late in getting off the ground."
Pros: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
Cons: "Finally took off at 12:15 AM on a flight scheduled to depart at 7;30 PM the day before!"
Pros: "Food and drink"
Cons: "Seats hurt after s while"
Pros: "It's nice to see a large corporation getting back to the basics which helped their company grow CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!"
Cons: "The airport waiting times through TSA check points. It's over kill and an obvious reason just to extend employment. Reminds me of the old saying " the criminals are running the asylum @"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Kept asking passengers pretty boarding to check luggage due to limited space...yet after we boarded there was at least 1 completely empty overhead compartment."
Pros: "On time."

Pros: "Business class seats very comfortable and private"
Pros: "Fomos atendidos pelo JIM ao fazer o check in e despachar as malas e adoramos o atendimento. Muito simpático e gentil."
Cons: "Out would be helpful if there was a visual cure at boarding of what group is "now boarding". It's not always possible too hear over the noise. You also might as well tell group 3 and 4 passengers to check luggage in advance to encourage an on time gate departure."
Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice. The flight went smoothly."
Cons: "Let's get some tvs on the backs of the seats!"
Cons: "Very long wait, though good communication. Rather bumpy flight."
Pros: "Crew and boarding"
Cons: "Seats are tiny"
Cons: "Better seats / choice of entertainment. They have not updated the content in months."

Cons: "It may have been a little too warm."
Pros: "Delayed notifications"
Cons: "Hours of delays and no courtesy by airline."
Cons: "I called United within 24 hours after booking and was told my flight could not be changed, but I was able to cancel for a refund. I said thank you and was told I would be refunded on the card I purchased with. Never refunded me!! Guess they never canceled my ticket?! Thanks, never booking with United again."
Cons: "VERY close quarters."
Pros: "Staff was professional"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 50 minutes"
Pros: "The flight crew was very helpful and very willing to work with everyone."

Pros: "First time didn’t sit on runway. Landed early"
Cons: "I farted on the plane"
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: "Crew was nice, but could tell they were tired."
Cons: "Waited for late connecting flights almost 40 minutes (15-20 people). First class seats were like bricks - lower cushions need upgrade or replacement. Very hard landing including a good pavement “bounce”. Not what I would consider first class accomodations all around. 3 different baggage claim turnstiles until they finally got it right."
Pros: "the ERJ175 has nice leg room in coach."
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."
Cons: "Web have to pay extra for acces internet, and they give you a little bag of mix of peanuts and little cup of coke, think in travels to more than 3 hours its not enough"
Cons: "Such a downgrade from other airlines! Awful! They board backwards. Usually the back seats board on the plane after the special needs people. Makes more sense, people are out of the way. My water was poured into a cup from a big water battle. I like how Jetblue gives me a personal water bottle and a variety of snack option. I was given a "snack mix" on this flight which was not good. I hated this flight and there were NO televisions, or usb ports to charge phones. Never again. They didn't even have enough room for carry on bags for everyone. Thank god I packed light and didn't need to use that option. Good to know United Airlines has crappy everything."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Waited on phone twice for 45 plus minutes to find alternate flight."
Pros: "The flight was delay by 2.5 hrs"
Cons: "Delay by 2.5 hts"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Changed gate without notifying anyone. Running around trying to catch connection with very little time."
Pros: "The attendant on this flight was very nice. many times and to get on a flight with United the attendants seem like they don't want to be there and they don't want you to be there. But this man was genuinely joyful to each customer."
Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous having five flights leaving out of one gate in five minute increments is very confusing this could definitely be better organized"
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours because they were waiting on an aircraft, which happens but no one to the time to explain or apologize even when asked. An apology goes a long way when you are stuck in an airport with every restaurant closing and you're hungry and tired. Definitely only flying delta or southwest from now on."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat even when I checked in (flight was overbooked)so I felt a lot of stress that I wouldn't get a seat on the flight I had booked a few weeks prior. I called United and they could not guarantee that I would definitely have a seat."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "Very uncomfortable turbulence, not your fault, boarding was smooth, checked my bag for free, got it right away at destination after stopover"
Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."
Pros: "I didn't like much. The employees were great and that's about it!"
Cons: "I've only flown with United for four flights. And of those four flights they have been delayed for three of them. To be specific about this flight, straight off the bat the flight was late due to a late arriving plane.. Understandable. Then to top it off they had no pilot. So then the 1.5 hour delay has now turned into a four hour wait. But I'm still waiting for the flight so the wait could be even longer yet. The airline should consider refunding everyone's money on this flight. An hour delay is one thing, but four hours is uncalled for. Never flying with United again."
Cons: "My connecting flight from IAD to BUF was cancelled due to aircraft maintenance; huge inconvenience. My checked luggage was lost and the rebooked flight had another layover. Not impressed with United."
Pros: "Cheap flight no problem."
Pros: "short flight nice crew"
Cons: "no food like in Europe"
Cons: "Small seats. They r making problem cause of small camera bag and the plain was half empty!"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight. I bought my ticket 3 months in advance but I was not given a seat until moments before the flight. Terrible. Never again with this airline."
Pros: "A little snack going with the beverage service. The wifi was cheaper than Air Canada's."
Cons: "Minimum legroom, entertainment system is not on demand and u have to pay for that...Wifi is way slower than the one on Air Canada. Also, boarding was very chaotic and the gate agent seems really not wanna work there."
Cons: "Flight was more than an hour late. My bags came back in terrible shape. One of them got torn"
Pros: "fantastic steward from denver to minot. funny, helpful and courteous. best i've ever had!!"
Pros: "It arrived early."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "There were parts of this trip that were out of your control- for instance, the weather. Most people are very understanding of the fact that flights were cancelled or delayed because of this, but members of the UA were short with customers, making unprofessional facial expressions at people who were stressed out because they were trying to reach their destinations, and some staff was even ignoring customers in a long line to have personal conversations with one another or texting on their cell phone."
Pros: "Seating arrangement"
Cons: "The delay and the worry of the door condition"
Pros: "On time, quick on and off. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Very small carry-on baggage capacity. Had to surrender in jetway."
Pros: "I wish all airlines were like Lufthansa. Lufthansa still cares about the passengers, while others only care about profit."
Pros: "Staff were professional and alert to all concerns and potential threats."
Pros: "The sodas."
Cons: "Clothing stolen, over crowed, smelled, half of my seat was taken. One of the worst flights I have had."
Cons: "While people were waiting on delay their was no effort made to get people seat locations. When time to board their was a line of 30 people getting new seat location before they could board the plane. A seat location I had for 3 months and checked in Ft. Myers 8 hours earlier was occupied so I was told very rudely to get in line behind 30 people to get new seat location. It took over an hour to board plane before take off. There was non English speaking customers who received no help boarding plane finding seats because crew was laughing joking with other passenger. They tried to put a non English speaking passenger in exit row. I paid $25 to check a bag to find passengers getting free bag checking at gate."
