Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Went well above the call of duty working until 3AM to get our very delayed flight to Philadelphia."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed."
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Temperature in AA cabins are 10 degrees or more colder than your competitors. Uncomfortably cold in AA flights. Recently I have flow, with spirit, Southwest, United, and Delta. In all those cases the cabin temperature was warmer than AA. I have to say as an exec plat, I wish AA would fix this issue. It is something that ER waiting rooms have adjusted and it has statistically shown to improve satisfaction scores."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"
Cons: "This was an updated 737 with pleather seats and a sleek look inside. But what matters most is leg room for me. There was none. I flew for 5 hours in totally cramped conditions. I loved the page in the mag about seat exercises to keep your leg circulation up. Couldn't bend my knees even. Disgusting"
Cons: "It took entirely too long to board the plane. Then there were ‘mechanical issues’ that needed dealt with. Well, don’t have everyone sit on the plane for 60 minutes. Don’t continuously state ‘it’ll be fifteen minutes.’ Just give straight answers"
Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"
Pros: "Flight attendant actually seemed to enjoy job even had genuine smile. Made that the most enjoyable flight I’ve had in awhile"
Pros: "The food was delicious and nutritious. The attendants were very conscientious and took care of us."

Cons: "The fact that my original seats were not given. The other issue was that Alaska wasn’t my airline but American was. They didn’t even tell me until I got to the gate, moved over to another and then got transferred over to my gate."
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
Pros: "I liked the easy boarding and exiting process. I liked the crew, they are all trained very well and seem to enjoy their jobs."

Pros: "mas de media hora en la pista y 15 minutos mas para desembarcar"
Cons: "Almost did not make it on the dieses flight because totally crowded at security check point."

Cons: "seats small and not real comfortable."

Pros: "everything on travel is good."
Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."
Pros: "Planes boarded on time"
Cons: "Long wait on runway before take off"

Cons: "Our pilot was the choppiest pilot I have ever flown with. Don't know if this was his first time flying or what. I was so happy this was only a 30 minute flight. He/she was terrible. More schooling should be a requirement until u can fly and turn smoothly."
Cons: "Broken headrest, no services, very loud older plane"
Cons: "It was constantly delayed and the airline was poorly treating its passengers in helping them get to their final destination. I was originally supposed to get into my final destination at 6pm, but I didn't get in until after 10pm central time due to those delays."
Cons: "Check in problems with precheck. There seems to be a consistent issue with seeing our precheck on our boarding pass. This has happened twice. Otherwise good overall. Time to fix the problem"

Cons: "Offer dinner service for a six hour flight."
Cons: "Older airplane with ragged seats; food wasn't very good"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "First, it was a big ordeal to get seats together, traveling with 3 children. Seats did not recline. No movie screen, entertainment. Weren’t allowed a carryon, only under seat. Will not fly united again."
Cons: "Another airport would be better, no extra charges for bags would be even better!"
Cons: "What a rip off airline trying to nickel and dime you every chance they can. You think you got a value until they add in extra money every chance they can. $13 to pick your seat. Tight fitting seats. They don't allow a carry on bag when you book economy and you have to pay for your carry on. Etc."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, wonderful crew, even got an appearance from Santa (we flew week before Christmas) which our 3ywar old loved"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. The unusually chipper voices telling us “B-bye”"
Cons: "I remember reading that Aeroflot in Russia has better customer service than United Air Lines. Well, it was on full display today on our flight from LAX to Kona repleat with the veteran battle ax barking orders at passengers; “The Bathroom is by the blue curtaaaaaaiiiins!!!!!’ Poor victim seemed utterly humiliated. Seating is cramped, seats narrow and unsupportive and the old 757’s (c. 1997) entertainment system is ancient...the touch screens seemed unresponsive, but were in fact just slow...as 5-7 seconds would elapse between touching the screen and the command being implemented. A full re-boot was ordered about 30-45 minutes into the flight. As expected, there were some bumps in the air, but we welcommed them because it required the crew to sit down, freeing us of their ultra passive agressiveness."
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Cons: "No food on a 7 hour flight?? That comes close to torture in my book. Crossing a huge ocean = food you don't have to pay for, in my book."
Pros: "comfortable seat"
Cons: "delayed 2.5 hrs, stood in jetway for 15 mins while crew fixed seatbelt issue. snack was poor; limited options for soda, small pour & only pretzels as snack!"
Pros: "The gate was right next to the one I flew in from."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "The entertainment onboard was good"
Cons: "Five hour delay due to the aircraft maintenance."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice and helpful."
Cons: "There was not much legroom. Especially when the person in front of you reclines. The menu stated they had craft beers. They did not. The Entertainment system is very old. My iPhone 7 has a larger and better quality screen. Not to mention it is based on channels like a TV so when you turn the channel it changes the already playing channels. At least Delta has large touch screens so you can choose what you want to watch and watch it from the beginning. The flight was late and one of our bags did not make it on the flight. We were happy it was on the next flight."
Cons: "Paying for entertainment"
Pros: "Service and food were great. Flight was smooth and a lot of leg room. Will definitely fly again."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Crew was very positive and helpful despite the delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hr. To use the entertainment you have to download an app, but in order to download the app you have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great!! The crew was great!"
Cons: "It was SO hot on plane, I was miserable the whole flight. It started out with a delay on the tarmac due to the air conditioning not working. We had to wait for maintenance to fix that. That wasn’t a big deal to me. We didn’t have a connecting flight to catch, so we were understanding....things happen. The problem for me began when HOT air was blowing on my legs the WHOLE flight. I was miserable! They only had pizza for purchase which did NOT sound appetizing in that heat. It was a terribly long flight and I was so happy to land and get off!!"
Pros: "Smooth sailing, the crew was so friendly and flight were all on time. They had really good movies on board which made time fly faster and"
Cons: "Nothen bad to say."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, very friendly and helpful. the pilot announcements were unintelligible. I appreciated that the crew anticipated that overhead luggage space would run out and offered gate checking of luggage all the way through to my final destination. I took advantage of their offer and it made my connections so much quicker and smoother"
Cons: "The room for seating is way to crowded, I need more leg room and don't feel I should have to pay extra for a minimum requirement for air travel. Beverages were skimpy, should be offered more often."
Pros: "Very friendly & accommodating crew. Pilot kept up informed. Personable disposition exuded across the board."
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: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
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: "That it was only a 5/6 hour flight"
Cons: "Movie choices were very limited. Need better snacks than only little mixed crackers."
Pros: "757 first class was excellent"
Cons: "First time using 1st class, now I am spoiled. United coach seats are to small"
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Everything regarding food $ wasn't aware of it"
Pros: "Pleasant crew and all around good experience. I had no problems with any of my flights."
Cons: "Boarding personnel was short and rude in some instances. Condescending comments were made when passengers were not forming lines to their liking."
Pros: "The seats we're ok"
Cons: "Delayed, bad service, bad boarding technique, bad cabin crew, and when we landed we spent another 30min taxiing and sitting. My connector flight was delayed two hours and by time I got to San Diego my rental car company was already closed."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Very Rude while talking to me at the airport. Was not happy to assist me and other passengers even though it was the air-line mistake for cancelling the flight and delaying the flight. Will never fly with this airline ever again."
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Pros: "Service/flight attendants were great. Flight was smooth mostly. Space was good as nobody next to me. Flt from YYZ via ORD to SFO misplaced my luggage and got it the next day."
Cons: "ORD to SFO was very turbulent and luggage didn't make it. Seats tight in middle for ORD to SFO"
Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours due to the air conditioning. It was absolutely ridiculous."
Pros: "No problems"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."
Cons: "The seats in coach were curved in a weird way. The seats made my posture bad."
Cons: "Check in staff was dismissive and not helpful at all at first."
Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "The seats looked new."
Cons: "United had us board and unboard and then board again due to flight delays. United also told us the delay would be only 40 minutes, but I looked at the delay in SFO and it was 2 hours. Eventually United also increased our delay by 30 minute intervals until it was about 2 hours. Once I arrivied in SFO I got a text message notification stating my luggage had been put on an incorrect flight and I would have to return to get my luggage. The attendants at the podium were rude. This was my first terrible flying experience ever."
Pros: "fantastic steward from denver to minot. funny, helpful and courteous. best i've ever had!!"
Pros: "It arrived early."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "The airplane was new and clean"
Cons: "The pre-boarding staff were rude and not helpful. I had requested an aisle seat when I booked my flight. Somewhere along the line, my seat was changed to a middle seat. When I asked the staff if I could switch to an aisle seat to help accommodate my sciatica, they told me, "sorry, we can't help you, you'll just have to ask another passenger." Neither crew member was willing to work with me or hear my concerns. So much for flying the friendly skies...well I guess we were still on land, so may that principle had not yet taken effect."
Pros: "I wish all airlines were like Lufthansa. Lufthansa still cares about the passengers, while others only care about profit."
Pros: "The sodas."
Cons: "Clothing stolen, over crowed, smelled, half of my seat was taken. One of the worst flights I have had."
