Cons: "No snacks provided only beverages supplied"
Pros: "On time departure/early arrival"
Cons: "Boarding g process a bit chaotic"
Cons: "The crew was late arriving to the gate which delayed boarding and then the plane had an electrical problem that could not be quickly fixed so had to deplane, go to another gate and board another plane. We were an hour and a half late leaving."
Cons: "No gluten free snacks"
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Cons: "We couldn't go to the bathroom. That's right, you read that right, the bathroom on the plane was broken. Also, we left ATL 30min late."

Pros: "The female flight attendant attempted to fill the shortcoming of her coworker"
Cons: "Condescending attitude towards bodies on the flight from the male flight attendant"
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "I like that the crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "That I was there and hour before my flight and my seat was given up. I didn't like that people are allowed to retract all the way making my flight uncomfortable."
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "Nothing. Was a lot of waited, the people were mad rough."

We weren't rebooked on a new flight, we had to call and wait an hour to finally speak to a representative to help rebook us. No flights available for 24 hours, no help finding overnight lodging, new clothes bc checked luggage was lost, $$ for taxis, meals, etc"

Cons: "No refreshments"
Cons: "I found out that my original flight (Wilmington to NY) was canceled 5 hours before it was scheduled to leave. I was rebooked on an earlier flight to Charlotte, which I could do because I had coincidently finished packing early and lived close to the airport. At the airport, my new flight was delayed, which could have caused me to miss my connecting flight to Boston and be stuck at the Charlotte airport overnight. I was then rebooked on a flight that was leaving to NY, with a connecting flight to Boston at 7."

Pros: "Fast entry... Great crew"
Pros: "I made it to NY somehow"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The service is horrible overall horrible, will never travel with American Airlines"
Pros: "staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The flight cansel"
Pros: "Everything was great until I arrived in New York LGA. The staff at Atlanta's airport were great from the curbside checkin agents to the wheelchair attendant and gate agents so that they 45 minute delay due to air traffic in New York was hardly noticeable. The flight attendants were pleasant and friendly and the food was delicious. We actually arrived ahead of our adjusted ETA, after a very smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon arrival in New York, the 3 of us who needed wheelchair assistance waited and waited for them to come. Finally, the gate agents rounded up some wheelchairs that were sitting around nearby just to get us off the plane and to the gate area. After waiting about 15 minutes, while hearing the gate agents being told repeatedly by the wheelchair dispatcher on the radios that they were coming and were passing through security, 2 female attendants finally arrived and they took the two elderly ladies and off they went, leaving me there waiting. I continued to wait, and wait, and wait for ANOTHER 25 MINUTES, total of 40 minutes after arrival at the gate. The same dispatcher lady continued to say that my attendant was on the way, passing through security for the entire 25 minutes. He asked me to change wheelchairs because he liked his better. He didn't offer to take my laptop bag and put it behind. He took off down the concourse before my feet were even on the footrests, with me holding my legs out in front of me because the footrests were up. After 20 or 30 feet, I got him to stop and let me get my feet down. I told him our luggage was supposed to be at carousel E, so he took me to "A". He asked me if any of the bags there were mine, and I said, "Why would they be here? I told you we were on Carousel E!" So then he wheeled me to Carousel E, and since it had now been almost an hour, it was empty. He asked an attendant where my bag would be, and was told to check at the office, which was back over by Carousel A. Upon finally checking with the personnel in the office, he came out rolling my bags and stood them by me for me to deal with while he just pushed the wheelchair. I had told him I was taking Uber, so he deposited me curbside near the taxi stand, which was not anywhere near where Uber could pick me up and was gone. FINALLY, after arriving earlier than expected at 3:25, at 4:43 I was finally picked up by Uber to go on home. What a nightmare! I thought the wheelchairs were supposed to be waiting upon arrival????"
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "Just a small plane, subject to turbulence. Not much that can be done, though if they ever redo the seats for a little more cushioning, that would be nice."
Pros: "Everything fine"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendant was super awesome. She was personable and had a great attitude. I didnt get her name, but she was by far the best! Blonde lady, smelled wonderful, very refreshing and funny conversation...(Ua1412 to LaGuardia) yeah yeah! Amazing!"
Cons: "I wanted the salami and cheese crackers but the flight wasn’t given any, so I chose the veggie smash/pita bread/quinoa/almond thing. Not too bad, but definitely no match for salami and cheese crackers. You know?"
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take the flight."
Cons: "They didn't get me to New York. Our original aircraft was stolen to use for another flight. So we needed to wait for another plane that wasn't due until 90 minutes after our scheduled departure. This second plane had maintainence issues. After 4 hours waiting I got on a Delta flight."
Pros: "My legs were very uncomfortable to sit"
Cons: "seats were too close"
Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "People were polite."
Cons: "I got my flight switched earlier. Paid $57 for it. Then this flight got delayed almost 2 hours so I ended up in NYC at the same time and it threw off my whole work day."
Cons: "Comfort, service.., terrible'"
Pros: "They let people get on with oversize bags when sequence 4&5 get on there's no room left"
Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."
Cons: "Everything! Even worse than my previous flight. Delays were inexcusable, staff ridiculously unfriendly and just bad attitudes all round. Very unpleasant experience, won't be using this airline ever again."
Pros: "I wish all airlines were like Lufthansa. Lufthansa still cares about the passengers, while others only care about profit."
Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."
Cons: "There was confusion on where to go check luggage and what duty free items could be carried on board."
Cons: "Old plane. An almost two hour delay taking off once we had boarded the plane. Terrible in flight entertainment options. 30 minutes straight of turbulence just before and while landing."
Pros: "Communicated things as they unfolded"
Cons: "The air traffic control issues on both ends of the flight...we had to divert to a different airport, and there was only one option for transportation and a long line to figure it out, so since it was so late, I gave up and ended up paying a hefty cab fee. The airline should have been ready with cards or info about how to get reimbursed, considering everyone's unique travel situations. Simply a shuttle back to Kahaurdia was not helpful..."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "The flight was short so no entertainment was needed. After the nightmarish flight I had just endured it felt like first class accommodations."
Cons: "Many hours of delays from and to.."
Cons: "United changed my flight 3 times, due to "traffic control", then I almost missed my flight altogether because the last update they sent me was incorrect. Luckily I showed up to the check in desk early, or what I thought was early, they were at final boarding and almost didn't let me on the flight. The crew was helpful but indignate. Flight 1968, no Bueno."
Pros: "I like the way the crew was very professional with the rude, obnoxious man sitting next to me. Not once did anyone lose their cool with him."
Cons: "The rude man sitting next to me. He was just so obnoxious and acted entitled as if he owned the flight."
Cons: "The flight No one knew what was going on. My bag made it in earlier than I did. Everyone I talked to was unhelpful. Staff was not able to deliver my bag overnight. Had to go back to the airport. Cannot stress enough that no one knew what was going on."
Pros: "I got stuck in security but the United staff waited for me to board. I am grateful they went the extra mile because I chose to fly that day in order to make it to an important event."
Cons: "When i originally boarded the flight i notices that the person next to me was an obese person that was taking over half of my seat when i went to the flight attendant and informed her she said she might not be able to do anything cause the flight was full. When door was about to close i noticed an empty seat and took. The thing that upset me is if there not been an empty seat i would have had to seat in a seat where there was no space and still would have paid the same as a person that is taking part of my seat and the flight attendant didbt even seem to care."
Cons: "The economy seats are obnoxiously small."
Cons: "My flight we canceled to LGA due to "weather". Every other airline had flights going to New York on schedule. To me, the reason was unbelievable. I was moved to a flight 12 hours later, at 540am. Not only was my flight time changed but I was now flying into a completely different airport. I had to stay in a hotel and pay $70 because United doesn't pay for a hotel if the cancellation is due to weather. I am outraged by this sudden change in plans. I will never fly United again and I will spread the word to everyone I know."
Cons: "No UBS charger on the plane!!!!!. I I cannot believe it . Not even in business class. Boarding always sucks. Wwhen will they ever learn that people can comfortably wait in the waiting area instead of being stacked up in front of the plane waiting for others to put their luggage away? It's ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "What are they charging for, I fail to grasp, No help in check in, pay for every bag you check in, pay for seat if you choose yr own, overpriced tickets, no meals, cramped seating. Worst airlines in the world."
Pros: "It was good , on time and quick destinations"
Cons: "Could be free wifi"
Pros: "Food, atmosphere, people!"
Cons: "Nothing not to like!"
Pros: "I like that my flight arrive on time. I mist say before a time and that was really good. I like almost everything about it."
Pros: "Again very skilled pilot in windy weather"
Cons: "Had to stand on bridge in crazy cold weather to pick up plane side check in. Just unfortunate"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and friendly."
Pros: "Every one was friendly. The plane was clean"
Pros: "The Crew was wonderful, warm and engaging. Made my fiancé and I feel comfortable."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment kept cutting out on me, I was watching a movie and never got to see the end because of connectivity issues."
Cons: "I have an 8 yr old boy & he & I were seated apart. The flight was packed, then we were seated together but there were 2 pairs including us that had duplicate seats. Needless to say the flight was delayed because the grumpy stewards couldn't fix the situation. The door was reopened so that the fate agent could finally resolve things. Stressful before a very turbulent flight, not fun, I'll never fly United again."
Cons: "Stop with the united airlines video. I bought the in-flight tv package but the in-flight United Airlines video, not the mandatory safety video, caused me to miss the end of my game. I don't care about seeing a commercial I'm already a customer."
Cons: "-Flight was 2 hours delayed getting to the gate because they kept saying they were "bringing it from the hangar." Does it really take 2 hours to bring a plane from the hangar? And why didn't they bring it before our scheduled departure? -Flight was then delayed another 1.5 hours because the fueler put too much fuel on the plane so we had to wait for them to send out another fueler to take fuel off. -Meanwhile, I was late for work and almost got fired because of this mistake. -They then proceeded to put my luggage on the wrong airplane so once we landed I had to wait another 1-2 hours for my luggage to arrive. -Meanwhile, all gate attendants had terrible attitudes when dealing with customer. I will never fly United again."
Cons: "Over 2 hour delay that started with maintenance again (this happened on 2 of 3 flights for this trip), that further delayed with the plane being late and de-icing for the weather. No in-flight entertainment and smaller seating than jet blue, yikes."
Pros: "Plane was sub-standard. Bad lavatory. Stewardesses gave wrong info about arrival terminal Only small toilet in rear of plane. No toilet in front Very bad experience"
Cons: "The turbulence was nuts, crew was rough, food was none!"
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice because they could not find a crew member/pilot. This was extremely unprofessional and I ended up having to get a flight with american airlines instead and they were awesome. Will never fly with united airlines ever again."
Pros: "Airline staff were friendly. Flight to O'Hare arrived late but what can u do? On flight to laguadia , I got no snacks and no soft drinks. economy class was like a sardine can"
Pros: "The service was quick by flight attendants, 5 minutes in the air we were served immediately. Then people were sleeping and relaxing. Thank you"
Pros: "On time. Clean equipment."
Cons: "Small seats."
Pros: "The pilot flew fast once we were actually in the air."
Cons: "First, the ol' Bait n Switch on my actual seat selection. "Sir, when you buy a ticket, purchase the "request" for a window seat." Was what I was told at the podium. So middle seat it was. Then there was a 3.5 hour delay... we taxied on the runway for 2 hours before taking off. Yep, another day on United."
Pros: "On time arrival and departure"
Cons: "Boarding process awkward. I liked the 5 lanes, but once on the plane it took a long time for people to load their carry-ons. I was seated in an aisle and was in boarding group 2......??"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "There was a weather delay and I went to pay for upgrade to a bigger seat and the airlines did it with out a charge. Thank you..."
Cons: "Never offered me a beverage, that is why a chose mediocre."
