Pros: "I appreciated that they were interested in the general welfare of the whole craft in the midst of storms."

Absolutely NO compensation or reimbursement due to "weather." While I understand they can't control the weather, this is literally one of the greatest elements in their company. They should have provisions FOR it. Running out of airlines I could trust and rely on, and thought American would deliver. But No, not even this one. Extremely disappointed and staying away from AA."

Cons: "Heh, it's 2017 and the halcyon days of travel are long gone . . . unless you're willing to shell out money . . . and more money. . . and more money. Flying is a demeaning experience where the airlines nickel and dime you for everything. Seats in economy are miniscule, your neighbors are in your laps, the food is objectionable and costly, entertainment non-existent or costly. Customers are cash cows who can be sucked dry for every amenity."

Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We accidentally left our Camera on the plane and didn't realize it until we got to our hotel. They had found it and returned it directly to our hotel. They saved our honeymoon."
Cons: "We had checked in early and selected seats together because this trip was our honeymoon. We or an alert saying our plane was changed as well as our seats and we were seated on OPPOSITE SIDES of the plane. We were then charged over $200 in order to sit next to each other. I even called United directly and they said there was nothing they could do. That's pretty inexcusable and ridiculous. If the customer service representatives are not Empowered enough to rectify such an egregious inconvenience, then why do they exist?"
Pros: "On time Skilled pilots Smooth landing Accommodating staff Pleasant"
Cons: "There was no entertainment, no more food left when they got to my seat and the seats were really small"
Cons: "Overall becoming frustrated with paying airline inflated seat prices not reflecting current fuel prices, smaller space, fees for every little extra, no food even for international flight, not enough overhead storage even for one per seat, switching of payed for Isle seat to middle at last minute, not a clean flight_ trash in seat pocket when I boarded and overall feeling of just being a revenue stream and not a person."
Pros: "I love how amazing the crew & especially the pilot handled An unexpected emergency stop during the take off. A+++ I felt comfortable and not stressed with what was being done to work things out. A huge thanks to them !!!!!"
Cons: "How shitty some of the passengers were to the crew and what was happening ."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Can't beat a direct flight from Houston to sunny Mexico!"
Cons: "They over booked the flight. And it was jumping all the time. The worst flight ever!!"
Pros: "Having enough time to eat at Pappadeaux"
Cons: "My seats felt smaller than they used to. More in each others' space."
Pros: "I made it to Cancun."
Cons: "When I got to the gate in Chicago I asked if my seat could be moved next to my friend. The attendant said she would only be able to move me closer and the issued another ticket to me. It ended up being a different persons name from mine. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to board because big her mistake."
Pros: "I liked that, even we departure a little late, the plane made it in time to Cancun. The plane was clean. They had all the variety of drinks."
Cons: "One of the flight attendant was not friendly at all. After we left there was plenty of room on the plane, and I told her that one of my leg was not good and if I could move to a better seat and she said no, IF I want to change the seat I have to pay. The entertainment system was not working at all."
Cons: "Upon arrival at Manchester airport a conversation was overheard about my flight being delayed 8 hrs. When I approached an employee she was abrupt and rude. The second employee when I inquired simply stated you will have to rebook gathered her things and left. Went to the desk rebooked the flight she asked if I had my boarding passes which I didn't because she hadn't printed them she then got them for me. I finally board the plane to get to Chicago and needless to say again the crew was held up and put me into another delay. I gave United another chance to do things well as I have had similar experiences in the past they failed. I would rather spend more money than deal with such frustration."
