Ridiculously long wait for baggage
There was no entertainment and again, the seats were very cramped and uncomfortable.
Cons: "We didn’t even have a pilot, had to call and find one because our pilot that was scheduled “forgot to call in sick”. We were already delayed by 4 hrs so this made it delayed by an hour more!"
Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."
Cons: "Getting food service back on plains."
Cons: "Social distancing"
Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight of my life. We were packed in like sardines during COVID. This was the least amount of legroom I've ever had on a flight."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "No more comments!"
Pros: "Everyone was very accommodating."
Cons: "Not much at all. Everyone was very accommodating"
Cons: "We got delayed claiming it was weather for 15 hours."
Pros: "Fast. Arrived early."
Cons: "More room."
Pros: "nothing. Plane never left."
Cons: "Airlines that actually fly. We ended up renting a car and driving the 3.5 hours from Charlotte to Savannah and actually beat the flight that finally left after 11 pm and landed 1 am. We should have gotten the car much sooner and driven instead of sitting at the airport for 8 hours."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for two hours because of a mechanical issue. When we reached Savannah we had to wait to get to a gate to get off the plane."
Pros: "Plane was clean, wifi worked"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5hrs, had to wait on tarmac 30min to take off and 15min to get to gate, bumpy flight. Jerky inputs from pilot."
Pros: "last minute upgrade was nice, made sleeping much nicer. food was good, flight uneventful which is always a good thing."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants had an attitude and we not very personable to others. Just doing their job, ticking off the boxes. One was very kind, the others not so much."
Pros: "It was a great flight. It was on time, and the plane was clean and the stewardess was courteous"
Cons: "It was a great flight."
Pros: "I liked the ability to choose my meal before the flight."
Cons: "Customer Service at the Priority Check-in could have been much friendlier, I’ve experienced much better customer service from Delta Airlines. Plus the flight attendants could have been more attentive that sitting up front in the galley and just chatting with each other."
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: "Wi-Fi and USB ports worked great. Seat was comfortable after 11 upgrade. On time"
Cons: "Having to pay extra for a exit row seat"
Pros: "Very attentive first class stewardess. Loved the comfort of the seats and extra legroom in first class."
Cons: "Wish wii was free. At least for first class."
Pros: "Landed early and safe. Crew was nice and comfort was okay"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times. Little knowledge from front desk, relied on my phone for updated info."
Pros: "Premium economy seats/service made the flight much more tolerable than previous overnight flight to Europe. Would definitely fly this class again. Non-stop from Charlotte to Madrid made travel relatively short."
Cons: "However, only reasonable flight options where red-eyes. Would also recommend noise cancelling haedphones."
Pros: "Did not even have food for sale was given a cookie for 4 hour flight and food services at airport was closed so this was pathetic and miserable finally three immigration officers for 4 international flights so we waited for 2 hours"
Cons: "The whole trip was miserable..., flight attendant and pilot were the only nice thing about this trip"
Pros: "Better-than-expected legroom and comfort. Plane was clean, well kept. Much newer aircraft, so the enhanced entertainment features were great!"
Cons: "Poor boarding experience due to long line and plane capacity. Felt bombarded by American Airlines marketing schemes for their airline credit card."

Pros: "The nicest flight crew we experienced"
Cons: "The chairs were tight together"
Pros: "Friendly welcoming stay"
Cons: "No dis likes"
Pros: "Roomy leg room"
Cons: "Plane to start,delay loading,dlaying taking off.almost hour late arriving."
Cons: "This was a tiny aircraft from Charlotte to Savannah. Our bags were placed into "valet" for the flight. When I retrieved my bag, the handle was broken! Destroyed on a 1 hour flight. This is exactly why people don't like checking their bags. There is no care for other people's belongings. It's bag enough you're packed on these flights like sardines and then you have to worry about receiving your property back the way you gave it to them. Placed a claim, but meanwhile I had to purchase new luggage for my return trip."
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."
Cons: "We booked a BA flight from Pittsburgh to Glasgow, through Philadelphia. We intentionally chose BA because we anticipated good service. We later learned that the flight was serviced by American. Our original flight was delayed one day because we missed our connection due to weather on the East Coast (after six hours at the airport). American re-ticketed us for a flight the next day. After several misstarts in Pittsburgh, we arrived in Philadelphia with minutes to spare. After running to the gate, we were then greeted with what turned out to be a four hour delay. Then, upon return, we learned that our seat selections/priority boardings were all deleted because of the re-ticketing on the on the flight out, and we spent hours on the phone and at the airport trying to get things sorted out and ensure that we had a return flight. One of the worst trips ever in my experience."
Pros: "Once we finally got on the flight, things were fine."
Cons: "Our flight arriving in Charlottesville was late we sat on the tarmac for 20 min. Than waited 20 mi utes to get our luggage that the checker. So we arrived at the gate for this flight and was told the flight was full. Stood around and waited. Finally another passenger suggested we go to costumer service. Waited an hour in the customer service line fortunately we were able to catch a flight that same night."
Pros: "Did not use"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Cons: "No wifi or chargers or seatback entertainment"
Pros: "The Check In Agents were so kind and helpful especially when they found out we were having a rough time with a family situation.....So blessed to have those two ladies working for such a magnificent airlines"

Cons: "The flight was delayed hence felt a sufforcation the flight as well"
Pros: "It's not the person at the gate's fault. She tried to be very informative and kind."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to leave at 630am. It's currently 945am and I'm still in the airport. Now a new maintenance issue was found. Flying is a first world luxury with first world problems."
Pros: "Great crew, happy hour was wonderful."
Pros: "Crew was apologetic."
Cons: "PHL ground stop no known reason. Good weather. Even pilot was at a loss. 4 hours total delay, 3 of which spent in tarmac."
Pros: "New plane!"
Cons: "Only offered pretzels even though there were cookies. I ha to breakfast them."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"
Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Pros: "New plane; great entertainment; very friendly and helpful on-board staff."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the American bag drop line at Heathrow was long and slow. I understand these things happen but all could have been eased with a bit more information being given and more staff on-hand to provide direction."
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Pros: "Great service and nice plane"
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Had to rent a car and drive to make meeting."
Pros: "Small seats, no consideration for disabled travelers. Pretzels suck. One 30 min tv show on 2.5 hour flight. No bathroom for handicap. Cheap airfare is the only reason I fly American. One attendant asked me, with attitude, if I was going to get off the plane...before realizing I can't physically walk. Her face turned white as a ghost when she realized what she had said and how she had said it."
Cons: "See above"
There was no food or entertainment but there is no n/a option
Flight updates was outstanding

Cons: "The boarding procédure in Dublin requires à long walks in 3 différent locations. Should be ma de shorter"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather at Newark. But when the weatther turned good, there was no Gate Agent from United for nearly one hour. Finally a captain who was flying home cold not take it and finally went from one gate to another hoping to find a GA."
Pros: "The stewardess was super nice! On time and no problems."
Cons: "Bad gate idea to have so many flights going off at once. Very confusing when the intercom would get cut off because another plane would start boarding."
Pros: "Attendants only came by 3 times. Once with food right away. The twice more with water right at the end. Would have preferred more attention."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "The crew in Newark forced me to gate check my bag even though there were several empty overhead bins. I had 5 people in my party and we had only 2 bags. Absolutely STUPID."
Pros: "Agent at the gate"
Cons: "My seats changed so my son and I were not sitting together. The agent at the gate was wonderful and got us seated together. I had to use the restroom and the flight attendant seemed put out, and gave me a dirty look. She than ignored me and almost hit me with her cart."

Cons: "It left a bit late from EWR."
Pros: "For once a United flight on timeh"

Pros: "Good flight."

Cons: "Two hour delay, which delays with United are becoming more and more common."

Pros: "Nice spacious quick flight."
Cons: "No free Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Other then they got me there safe, I dont think there is anything I liked about this flight. Pilot did a decent job, there was lots of turbulance so nothing they could do about it and I made it safe."
Cons: "Plane from Chicago to Savannah was small. I was all the way in the seat not slouching and my knees were crammed in the set infront of me. The arm rests were digging into my thighs as well. Im used to not much leg room but this was a first for how crammed in I was into a seat, Im 6'3" & 270lbs. Ive probably been on 50 different planes over the years to give you some perspective of my experience flying when I say this was a first and a very uncomfortable plane. The plane to take us to Savannah arrived so late it pushed my flight back by like an 1.5 hours from what it was supposed to be."

Pros: "The only thing i lkied about the flight was that they delivered my bag even though it came out 3 days later"

Cons: "Would not change a thing"

Pros: "It arrived early."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "Nothing. Flight never happened"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled hours before it was supposed to take off leaving me minimal crunch time to figure out a new flight for myself."
Pros: "Things were going well until the pilot had us get off the plane."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. United couldn't get me out until Sunday. So I rented a car and drove down instead."
Pros: "Quick and Quiet is how I would describe the flight."
Pros: "I wish all airlines were like Lufthansa. Lufthansa still cares about the passengers, while others only care about profit."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather at ohare despite the fact that many other flights were still going. First delayed, sat around for hours, then cancelled almost 3 hours post scheduled departure time. No hotel voucher provided. Rebooked, but not done correctly so when I tried to check in, it was discovered that I didn't actually have a rebooking, requiring additional calls and second rebooking."

Pros: "Had to switch planes. Done quickly only delayed s half hour."
Cons: "Had to switch planes."

Pros: "The staff was friendly... I liked the dimmed lights... The free beverages n options to purchase alcohol... The flight was quick and steady"
Cons: "When I got to my seat I had to use a wipe to clean it because there was what looked like either throw up or oatmeal on my seat.... The pocket in front of me was filled with trash like an empty water bottle, a bag of chips and dirty napkins (they were very big so it was obvious that no one cleans between flights)... Also it didn't matter how many times I tried connecting to the wifi, I couldn't and I was willing to pay for it to because it was important that I work during my flight."
Pros: "Everything was easy."
Cons: "The plane was hot"
Cons: "I don't think I have walked that far in years- not that I'm lazy but I have rheumatoid arthritis and walking can be very painful- I assumed gateA1 wouldn't be far - but to assume is always wrong!! After my long walk out the plane was super small and the leg room even less!!! So this is why I've rated the way I did- maybe the length of walk should be included in ticketing- the population is getting older and chronic diseases are everywhere. Maybe you could advertise to these populations."
