Communication and updates and leaving on time.
Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."

Pros: "The crew was very good & a great selection of movies."
Cons: "More selection of snack would be great."
Cons: "The seat went back three inches. I was about to spasm after 4 hours. No movement whatsoever. The flight crew could have moved me but I suppose they were told not to as I had a cheap ticket."
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "Expensive, tight seats, They now charge extra if you want to sit by the window. Mediocre."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. Avoid this airline like the plague. Never again."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"

Cons: "Seats are small but I understand why just dont like it."
Cons: "My flight from Madison to Chicago got cancelled and I had to drive for three hors to get to o’ Hare."
Pros: "Loved the interactive headrest system. Games, movies and more. Kept me so busy that the trip seemed like minutes instead of hours. Very comfortable seats!!"
Cons: "Tight squeeze down the aisle and heaven forbid you drop something while seated because you pretty much had to put your head on you neighbors lap to get it."

Cons: "I wish they had outlets near seats but that's more of a general suggestion."
Pros: "I fflew Delta last Nov. Had meals movies dinner inks etc. American I am serv d beverages no meals and no movies. Getting ridiculous"
Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful."
Cons: "Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable."

Cons: "I was late to my first flight from Dallas to LR due to my flight from Spain coming in late. I got off the plane and there was also another connecting flight printed for me. I thought "wow that is amazing sevice! I am def going to brag on them." I should have done it myself... after a 30 hour traveling day.. I got to the counter to get on my second scheduled flight home, and it wouldn't let me on because something with my Rickey was not working on the computer. The person did not know how to fix it so I missed the flight. After calling a supervisor, and that said supervisor never showing up, someone else finally happened to walk by and helped the original person fix the problem. Finally after waiting 5 hours total, I was on my flight home. The first flight was amazing but this flight makes me question if I want to ever use American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "All flights were on time and actually landed ahead of schedule. Crew were helpful and attentive but our particular flight attendant was very abrupt with all the passengers which was off putting."

Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "old planes, no entertainment on transcontinental flight. Terrible food, and options"
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Pros: "Easy and safe flight to destination. Not meant to be a 5 star hotel."
Pros: "This was great!"
Cons: "Every leg of my journey I was charged for two pieces of luggage. I thought this was ridiculous and unfair."

Pros: "Each person having their own screen for movies and Tv is great! Food good/ too much but spaced apart very well...overall excellent service"
Cons: "Being pulled aside prior to boarding because we did I not have a sticker on our passports... otherwise boarding was excellent!"
Pros: "Was appropriately warned that British Airways was having computer problems"
Pros: "Personel attitude and excelent service"
Cons: "The 2 hours delay to deppart and the small room in seats."
Pros: "Flight was good overall , free pretzels were tasty. Drink service on point."

Pros: "plane was entirely too small for any hope of comfort will advise friends not to book a flight that includes American eagle, and will not use American in the future if I can avoid it."
Pros: "Can't make my stars better on the survey. My flights were great. Great people...kind."
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: "Crew were friendly and helpful, the magazine was worth reading and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "The seat felt like a wooden block was strapped to my back."
Pros: "Layover was short"
Cons: "I was charged for my carry on that they then forced me to check. Then one of the stewards on the second leg was an outright nasty woman regarding masks. I had my mask over nose and mouth.

Pros: "The crew was helpful accommodating, the flight was smooth and it was just a very pleasant experience overall"

Pros: "Pilot kept us up to date on flight times, weather in London, etc."
Cons: "Legroom. Not changing passengers’ seating at the last moment."
Pros: "fast flight"
Cons: "no crew to unload plane, ended up sitting on runway for 1 hour + at RDU, at 1:00 AM"
Pros: "nothing spectacular"
Cons: "paying for wifi to access the "free" movies/TV shows....ridiculous. Miss the good old days when everything was included in the price of a ticket. now you have you pay for everything :("
Cons: "Just a couple passengers slow to get suitcases in overhead slowed people down. Nothing United needed to fix. You all were great. Loved the flight attendants’s humor too."

Pros: "The crew was pretty good."

Cons: "Not on time, flight got cancelled and they just rebooked to the next day with no support for overnight stay, rental, etc."
Cons: "Poor food selection,"
Pros: "I always feel merely "tired" after the Denver-Tokyo flight on UA's 787 Dreamliner. On all other aircraft, I always feel "exhausted" after an intercontinental flight. The increased humidity and pressure make an incredible difference. As usual, I paid a ~$300 premium to take this flight (HKG-NRT-DEN and back) rather than cheaper HKG-SFO-DEN or HKG-SEA-DEN routings, which feature 777 or A330 aircraft."
Cons: "As long as you don't expect the level of service you would receive on an Asian carrier, United is fine. As usual, United's cabin crew are simply not generally gentle and welcoming. They get their jobs done, and I feel safe with them, but I don't look forward to interacting with them. I wish ANA would operate NRT-DEN!!!"
Cons: "Delays and poor communication. Ended up on other airline and 14 hrs to get from Madison, WI to Baltimore, MD"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Every time I paused my movie, it was difficult to resume it. I couldn't watch the last half at all."
Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour but not notified of the length of the delay in a fashion which would allow me to drive the 2 hours to Chicago in order to make my connection. Repeatedly told the connecting flight was the last one out of the entire airport to my final destination. Heard other travelers discussing that they had been rebooked onto an alternate airline and then found a later flight on Kayak, walked up to podium and asked to be rebooked on that specific flight, which they grudgingly did. Of note, I was repeatedly reassured that they were "sure" I would make my connection without a problem and to stop worrying so much. My flight left out of Madison 2 minutes after my connection departed Chicago. I usually fly a different airline, whose flights out of Madison were all on time that day, and will do so in the future despite more expensive ticket. The actual crew on the flight was lovely and apologetic, did everything they could to help us despite the delays. At least that's something."
Pros: "On time Nice crew"
Cons: "Pure sugar snack"
Pros: "There is nothing positive to say."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 8 hours. We boarded and unboarded the plane 3 times. Why didn't they just cancel the flight? I missed my connecting flight. No food or beverage service. Didn't even let us use the airplane bathroom after a long delay. I paid to check my luggage and they LOST it and sent it to the wrong airport."
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "I never made it to Newark"
Pros: "Half-hour flight, early to destination, which gave us plenty of time for our connecting flight."
Cons: "Why pay extra for baggage? This should be included in the ticket price -- which incidentally was not cheap!"
Cons: "I haven't made it there yet. Flight leaves 4PM Friday. Mechanical problems in Chicago so was put up in Hyatt and I am at the airport now waiting to fly out at 4PM today."
Pros: "The seats were somewhat comfortable."
Cons: "Almost nothing was included with the ticket purchase."
Pros: "The plane didn't crash"
Cons: "You pay for everything- including wi fi. Cheapest, saddest flights I've ever had. Never again flying United."
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
Pros: "Gate agent handled impossible situation well"
Cons: "flight was canceled due to mechanical problems on two of the airplanes"
Pros: "Boarding was uneventful, but I wish I could have gotten a gate check....I;m 76 and getting my bag above the seat is difficult. But the gate attendant said there was no gate check on that flight."
Cons: "I had a center seat and that is very uncomfortable for me."
Pros: "Delays, rudeness, doesn't have its act together. Must be United Airlines"
Pros: "I took 4 different flights and all the crews seemed to all be moody."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly!"
Pros: "Getting a seat in economy plus! (But I think that happened because I had trouble using the online seat booking process and couldn't get a seat assignment till I got to the gate for my Albany flight, probably the only seat available) also liked arriving early in Albany."
Cons: "Arriving at the end of terminal C and having to trek to the end of terminal B for my connecting flight. Supposedly a one hour window, but by the time I got off, and made that enormous trek, no time to get a meal. Going to Madison flights left from almost adjoining gates. Lovely!"
Pros: "They kept us well hydrated"
Cons: "How far I had to get to me next flight in Chicago"
Cons: "Poor coordination after our flight from Frankfurt took off 1/2 hour late and we had to run through the airport to catch our flight to Washington along with an entire busload of passengers in the same boat. No assistance from anyone to help us reach our connecting flight on time. When we did arrive just under the wire, our seats were changed at the front gate, even though we had assigned seats and checked in 24 hours before. Poor situation."
Pros: "On time..nice staff"
Pros: "Tsa stopped all in my party for private screening to run us very late.."
Pros: "Flight and crew was great."
Cons: "Kids whose mother didn't seem to think it was appropriate to keep her damn kids quiet during basically an overnight flight, let them fight continuously, making noise and kicking the back of my seat even after repeated attempts at glaring at all of them. Really wish flight attendants would get more involved in these situations. Sigh."
Pros: "Attended to us constantly"
Cons: "Everything was Great!"
Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."
Cons: "The baggage claim at San Luis obispo was not acceptable"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived on time. Flight attendant has a rock star!! Did her job above and beyond what I have seen in the past."
Cons: "United airlines crew said that the plane had on board computer problems and then the crew said they couldn't fly because they were timed out on hours and we sat for 3 hrs in the plane only to here that they cancelled the flight and I had to scramble to find another flight to get to my destination"
Pros: "I liked the crew members"
Cons: "Weeichair service was late"
Cons: "The fact that the tv is on constantly without the option to turn it off is annoying. The viewing length to passenger is too short to really enjoy (Probably not your fault). PLEASE permit us to turn it off."
Cons: "Unable to depart due to pilot wanting windows washed. Created significant delay. Had to rebook flight for next day. Additional cost as a result. I will seek a refund which was due to the delay."
