Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time. Besides that. Not much."
Cons: "Having to us use our cell phones to watch a few channels was terrible. No movie. No help. You were just left on your own. Total of waste of time. Give us a monitor. Give us options. You are American Airlines, not Allegiant Air"

Cons: "Departure was about one hour late."
Pros: "They kept on schedule. We"
Cons: "I was not notified of flight changes and until I called the Airline my husband and I were intended to sit far apart. I booked this trip back in Jan. and we were supposed to be across the aisle from each other. We ended up in the last row of seats of both flights. We never knew of the changes until we tried to get boarding passes."

Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."

Cons: "The space under the seats on the floor has gotten very small."
Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."
Pros: "The only nice thing was the plane."
Cons: "There was terrible service. And we missed out connection because an empty plane was sitting at our gate. There is no way the airline did not know this plane was at our gate.

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."
Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."

Cons: "I was pulled aside at the gate and had a security interview because I hadn't checked a bag!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and made my travel pleasant"
Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant"
Cons: "There is very little space in the seats, I had a big guy sitting next to me and I had trouble sitting with my back straight, he was taking some of my seat! Also they charge for luggage 25$ like the domestic flights"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating in light of the maintenance delay. Especially for those of us with small children."

Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "This is a small airplane. I would like to see United insist that people check large bags."

Cons: "Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day"

Pros: "An early departure!"
Pros: "Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport"
Cons: "My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United.

Pros: "Very annoyed with the direct tv. No gluten free option for food/snacking."

Cons: "Few entertainment options - direct TV unavailable for about half the flight, WiFi also unavailable for the same."
Cons: "Person at ticket counter was rude did not want to wait in us when we was 1st in line. Did not greet and say good morning"
Pros: "The transportation..."
Cons: "There's absolutely no leg room it's the smallest amount of room I have ever experienced on a plane - even the first class is eh - mediocre at best. I am slim and fit and I had very little to no room. Consider someone overweight and they would have to buy 2 seats... united is definitely not my favorite airline..."
Pros: "The people were all very nice. The plane was top-notch. Would definitely fly with them again if I had the opportunity."
Cons: "The boarding lasted much longer than I had anticipated. I was also not informed of when my group was boarding at the proper time."

Cons: "JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN."
Pros: "First time first class flyer. It was great!"
Cons: "Being separated from my wife in seating when we booked before others that we talked to!"
Pros: "The flight attendants. Especially Meagan and Heather. Amber was a,sweetheart too. I had the same attendants 3 out of 4 of my flights that weekend. So cool. When they realized it was me again they spoiled me rotten. So good I feel like unless I have those 3 as my attendants I won't fly United again"
Cons: "No food options. No free food"
Cons: "Really awful, disorganized and unapologetic."
Pros: "Got through sucurity ar PNR barely in time to make flight."
Cons: "Even though I am a frequent flyer with a Global Access card, I was select for enhanced security check. I paid for the Global Accessmcard especially sofas to avoid this. United said it was a TSA thing while TSA said it was at the prerogative of the airline. Why did this happen? So much for TSA Pre or Global Access."

Pros: "The flight was ok."
Cons: "It took a long time to hook up to the jetway once we taxied in to EWR. Pilot even commented that he didn't know what the heck she was doing out there."
Pros: "Despite the lack of entertainment options, the ability to upgrade to economy plus made my flight comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment on board, and you need a plugin installed on your mobile device to make their streaming service work, which I didn't have."
Pros: "Flight did not happen"
Pros: "I liked when Delta stepped up and had us booked on one of their flights within seconds, after United abandoned us at their own terminal."
Cons: "Flight delayed 3 times due to maintenance, total of 5 hours. After final arrival time came and went with no plane or even announcement, I had to go back through security to front desk to find a rep and remind United that they had forgotten about us. They handed us off to the Delta counter with no apology (except the "new girl" apologized)"
Pros: "Both flights were on time. The planes were new and clean."
Pros: "Not a single thing!"
Cons: "Arrived late"

Pros: "The crew was nice and the area was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that before boarding they offered to check peoples bags for free because so many people were trying to take ridiculous sized bags onto the plane. I always pay to check my bag . That process took for ever but we did still arrive on time."
Cons: "it took me three days to get home. the first plane had a mechanical error. the second flight united booked me on was over booked so i didnt get a seat. the third flight they tried to send me on was also over booked. luckily someone volunteered to give up their seat."
Pros: "We stood in line forever to then be told the clerk couldn't ch we ck us in. When we tried the kiosk it didn’t work. Long story short we missed our flight due to their poor organization of the line and crowd."

Cons: "Seating next to the bathroom is gross"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "Couldn't really figure out your Wi-Fi system so I just read a book"
Cons: "It's not really easy to set up your Wi-Fi system through the United app"
Pros: "It use to be, I could put up with the lack of comfort and services because the cost savings made it bearable. But thes days, the basic ticket costs are high and increasing despite ala Carter pricing. The flights are always full and the number of flights are down. Airline profits are at a peak yet very little is flowing back to improve the flying experience."
Cons: "No agent to check in when I arrived at airport. Only at gate. No advance check in or advance seating. Allowed passengers to have more than 2 bags. Flight was late. No help getting to next gate or holding aircraft. Absolutely uncomfortable sitting."
Pros: "That I got a refund, although that should be a given"
Cons: "Had to purchase new flight day of, as I was told of flight cancellation 5 hours before leaving to the airport. I then had to spend $500 on a new flight, and one of the connections refused to let me on the plane. Stil not home."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Pros: "made good time."
Cons: "they lost our luggage on the way back,Didn't make it to Portland. But it was brought to our house at 7:45. I think for 1600.00 for tickets you should provide pretzels. That would be great. Thanks"
Cons: "Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights"
Cons: "Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm."
Cons: "Tried to get assistance at the United desk where my gate was located at and they could not answer any of my questions and would not assist me or many others who had the same issues."
Cons: "Payed to upgrade seat was not comfortable and person next to me kept moving onto my side. Flight was 2 hours late so I missed my connection and had a terrible time to find a flight home. United staff was not helpful and kept telling me to go somewhere else for help. No food was served only tiny packet of way too spicy pretzels. Sat on the runway for an hour. Flight crew said 15 min and it was much longer. Crew seemed to be really confused."
