Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The flight crew was fine considering it was 2 in the morning."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 3 times; from 10:40pm to 12:55am to 1:25am because “the copilot was late on his flight from Chicago.” When another American flight arrived around midnight and their copilot offered to step in (he had not exceeded his flying hours), he was refused by management. Exhausted passengers were extremely angry. Each time the flight was delayed, the gate agents waited until the “Boarding in...” status screen reached 0 before announcing the next delay. Not cool."
Pros: "AA flights are always a pleasure. Staff is cheerful despite the early hours I fly out of Philadelphia."
Cons: "There is a complete lack of airport personnel at 3:00am and the fire alarm went off and sounded for about half an hour or so."
Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"

Cons: "Sat on tarmac a lot at both airports. They boarded all 9 groups so back to back, there was almost no line speration."
Pros: "My flight to Frankfurt was a disaster. Delays at LGA caused me to miss the connection. Two very nice AA customer service phone staff attempted to help by booking me on a Lufthansa/United flight out of JFK that same evening. HOWEVER, I got to JFK only to discover I had NOT been ticketed. A lengthy call to AA resulted a a lame apology -“we don’t do that” they claimed, but the had previously! And had booked me, so what the heck was this??? I’m still fuming!"

Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "It was okay"
Cons: "We loaded late and than sat in the plane awhile before we left. No explanation was given. Once we arrived in Charlie we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. No explanation. Than we waited 20 min fir our carry on luggage to arrive. We were told we had to check it. By the time we arrived at our gate they had given outlet seats away. They were not very polity ir helpful."

Cons: "Couldn't get the entertainment app to work"
Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"
Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Cons: "Very poor boarding. Crew late but did not start screening and checking passengers until late. Had to ride bus to plane and walk a short distance in the rain which was moderately heavy."
Pros: "Extra blanket and pillow. Empty seat to sleep in. Fairly clean interior for the most part."
Cons: "The plane supposedly was running out of fuel, which I've never heard of such thing. So we had to go down 20mns before reaching Charlotte to a nearby airport to get fueled up and then went back in the air. The whole ordeal made me miss my connection flight to Barcelona! And I wasn't able to get on a flight until the next day. To make matters worse I had to flight back to New York to catch the flight to Barcelona! Unbelievable. I was beyond disappointed. I chose American Airlines for a reason, a good one at that. Yet this happened."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "Flights attendants were super friendly and the plane was very clean"
Cons: "seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late . It was in the hsngar. They said they were fixing the plane. It was an old plane. No Screen anywhere . It was 5.5 flight across country. Only pretzels. I will try not to fly American again."
Cons: "I paid $75.00 to take an earlier flight and Americans crew error nullified this. I feel ripped off."
Pros: "Polite and professional:-)"
Pros: "The crew, as always"

Cons: "The food i have a pretzel bag that someone throw in the floir step on it and the give it to me"
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Pros: "Nice boarding head schedule friendly service."
Cons: "Poor entertainment but other than that it was a great flight until we got to Charlotte the ✈it was thousands of feets to make touchdown went took off again a was scary moment for all the passengers."
Pros: "I liked that I landed in time to get to my next flight."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had a child kicking my seat back the whole flight and that the in flight movie that I purchased skipped more than it played."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Pros: "Arrived home safely"
Cons: "Arrived very early due to logistics and our flight was not leaving for 9 hrs and the AA Representative would only put us on a earlier flight if we paid a large fee, so we waited then the original flight was delayed 2 hours and we nearly missed our connection in another city, it all could have been avoided if a little flexability and care were involved to put us on a earlier flight"
Cons: "Zero flexibility"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming. I enjoy having more choices then just pretzels and peanuts for a snack."
Cons: "The boarding process seems like it is hectic and not very well planned. A lot of people still standing in line that are not actually boarding yet because they are not in the correct group. This made it hard to actually board and know where the line was. Once on the plane the seats just seemed very uncomfortable."
Pros: "We paid to upgrade to economy plus for the extra leg room which made the flight more comfortable."
Cons: "Seats do not recline"
Pros: "The roominess of the plane. Awesome."
Cons: "We were crammed in like sardines"
Pros: "New plane"
Pros: "Attendants were nice"
Cons: "Made me check my carry on to destination when lots of people had carry one same size as mine"
Pros: "I liked the check-in and waiting area at the airport."
Cons: "I did not like that we had to walk so much to the new gate assignment."
Cons: "Boarding and disembarking were quite painful with an overcrowded plane and most passangers carrying on huge bags. What happened to shoulder bags only for carry on?"
Cons: "Never made it to destination"
Pros: "One of us had the last seat on the plane even though they were reserved almost a month ago. However we had signed up for basic economy so that was not a shock. What was a shock was that water was dripping from the top side track onto his lap and he had to use the provided brochures to redirect the dripping water. The steward said it was condensation and that was it. Also, since it was next to bathroom, the smell wasn't great and the small child screaming while waiting to get into the bathroom wasn't pleasant."
Pros: "Nice seats and lots of space"
Cons: "Rude crew on board"
Pros: "I was impressed with the fact that our crew initiated an alternate route so we could actually get to RDU when things had been pretty dicey. Excellent flying and landing under difficult circumstances."
Pros: "Delayed bc of weather."
Pros: "Flight was 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Fully booked plane"
Pros: "The seating is cramped."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "The personal tv"
Cons: "Having to pay an extra fee just to watch whatever I wanted"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Very small seats, no leg room."
Pros: "Good just hate middle seat."
Cons: "The 2 people in front of me were told they'd have to check their bags, as was I. They boarded with the bags and I saw that there was plenty of room in the overhead bins for mine too. I could have avoided the baggage claim wait. If you make this determination then it should be enforced. Next time I too will carry on my tagged bag"
Cons: "We were boarded on the aircraft. A 737 800 that was booked full. No ac, no pilots, and the weather was fine. It was the worst flight I've ever been on. If you don't know when the pilots are going to arrive, don't board the flight and make everyone sit in a hot plane without even updating the passengers on the eta or departure."
Pros: "Good and frequent updates on delays and changes."
Cons: "No reasons for delays."
Pros: "boarding was efficient and fast; easy check in"
Cons: "oversold flight with 16+ standbys multiple flight delays with vague or no explanations"
Pros: "Service at the boarding gate."
Cons: "Comfort= no leg room, people pack like sardines Food+ have to purchase you own food. Entertainment= have to purchase Wi-Fi to get entertainment Overall after flight for almost 15 hrs. I was hoping to get some comfort for this flight."
Pros: "fantastic steward from denver to minot. funny, helpful and courteous. best i've ever had!!"
Pros: "It arrived early."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Pilot was excellent, didn't even feel the wheels touch down at RDU. It was a turbulent flight with thunderstorms (barely too bumpy for drink service) but Captain made it as smooth as possible and also kept us well informed what to expect. Plane was also on time, though many flights that day were late."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled after a 3 hour delay. The next flight out was from a different airport, 14 hours later and with another connection. I would not have arrived home for another 28 hours. I decided to rent a car and drive the 4.5 hours home instead. Processing the refund has been nearly impossible."
Cons: "The layover/ delay was bad and inconvenient."
Pros: "my flight was on time, and quick which is always helpful. I was able to sit at the seat I picked as well."
Cons: "Boarding took so long between all the kids which i think could have moved faster. The seats are always tight without much room. I'm pretty small so it doesn't affect me as much but I could tell some of the other travelers were uncomfortable. United has got to step up their snack game too. I got like a zesty ranch snack and I was happy I brought my own snacks."
Cons: "Once again just like the first United flight the AC was so cold. They did not offer blankets and my son was so cold I had to unpack tshirts to wrap him. Will not fly this airline again. This has happened twice now."
Pros: "I wish all airlines were like Lufthansa. Lufthansa still cares about the passengers, while others only care about profit."
Pros: "The flight overall went fast - boarded, took off, landed within an hour."
Cons: "There was only one snack - a zesty ranch snack mix. I couldn't eat it because it was a little spicy. I was not offered an alternative, I don't know if there was one."
Pros: "Everything Was good crew courteous"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The sodas."
Cons: "Clothing stolen, over crowed, smelled, half of my seat was taken. One of the worst flights I have had."
Pros: "No delays, was actually 35 minutes early on my return flight, attendants were especially kind to me and helped me out significantly, and I was pleased with the free in-flight entertainment via the free Wifi. Overall, a Good experience with United."
Pros: "Nothing. Both airlines refused to accept responsibility."
Cons: "Security was down to 4 officers after 8 pm, which is normal practice. We where in line for 2 hrs with TSA. Neither airline made any attempt to assist getting us to the gate faster to make our flight on time. We received no assistance from United or Lufthansa airlines and had to sleep in the airport overnight."
Pros: "The crew for this flight was amazing! Very helpful and informative. Friendly is an understatement. Safety was a priority especially when we went through a little turbulence. Thank you for making this a wonderful experience."
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: "Easy process, no issues. Pilot handled turbulence well, landed pretty smoothly. It was a good trip."
Cons: "No complaint except the trash other passengers left on the plan."
Pros: "Good crew Landed on time"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "The single best thing was that the cabin lights were dimmed on the way to Raleigh so I could sleep since it was so late. The crew was polite and patient. Getting re-booked for a new flight after my original flight had been cancelled wasn't too bad. Text message updates are helpful (but could use more info)."
Cons: "I arrived into Newark to find out that my flight had been cancelled. I'm still not sure why it was cancelled. Then, I was placed on a new flight that was intended to leave at 8:30pm, but didn't leave until 1:00am. I spent 10 hours in the Newark airport where, even though charging stations were in abundance, wifi was non-functioning. I received 7 text messages, each one with new departure times. I appreciated the texts, but would have liked to have more information about why we were delayed. Communication from gate agents can go such a long way. I spent a ton of money on bad airport food and couldn't work due to the lack of wifi. I never understand why nothing is offered to passengers in return for such delays--whatever happened to food vouchers, etc.?"
Pros: "Had the row to myself in Economy Plus. Beautiful afternoon skies. Easy and comfortable."
Pros: "Enjoyed the small size of the Raleigh airport."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were."
Cons: "I hated how it kept delaying and delaying I didn't know what to do or if to leave and come back time change was ridiculous"
Pros: "The flight was fine and on time. All staff from the check-in to the flight were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The only complaints have to do with the other customers flying. Not reading up on the carry-on dimension guidelines and delaying everything. No issues with United at all."
Pros: "Our stewardess' were great."
Cons: "The seats were hard, the plane was cold, & the overhead lights were so bright and never turned off."
Pros: "We boarded the plane, made it to the runway when a light came on causing us to have to wait and wait on the plane until they had to bring us back to the gate where we had to exit the plane and go back to WAITING in the terminal. We were so delayed I missed all of my meetings and lost business because they could not give us an ETA at all or updated on our flight."
Pros: "Aisle seat."
Cons: "They made my dad check his bag even though there was space."
Pros: "Lots of room"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. New plane but seats are incredibly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight was on time, in fact, arrival was early."
Cons: "The seating was a bit tight."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Small aircraft."
