Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Cons: "The entertainment app didn’t worked"
Cons: "The American Airlines staff seemed like they were in a bad mood, not very friendly. Nothing outrageous though."
Pros: "The crew was great. The plane was clean. Both flights were on time and went very well."
Cons: "The one thing I must say could be better is limiting people to one carry on bag. There were a few people that held up the boarding process because they had more than one bag and they were trying to find a open slot in the overhead compartment."
Pros: "First class travel on express jets."
Cons: "First class travel is limited to bigger seat and snacks. I think hot towellete could be very nice."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly compared to other airlines, and the pilots seemed more skilled as well. Very smooth landings in spite of turbulence."
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."
Pros: "Seat assignment process was great and considerate of my preferences."
Cons: "If AA could fix its luggage handling process that would be great. BOTH (!) of my bags have been lost on this flight. Both have been eventually located, recovered and delivered to me, but experience was not pleasant this time."
Pros: "Friendly crew, meals/snacks/beverage service all excellent, and great movie selection! Return flight slightly delayed but we got notifications in advance. Would highly recommend the DFW to Rome nonstop flight."
Cons: "The seats in economy are comfortable but way too close together, even for a small adult needing minimal leg room."
Pros: "Crew on board was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. I thought families traveling with kids would get priority boarding before main cabin."
Pros: "The crew that was on board was pleasant. I always like flying American."
Cons: "There was no flight attendants so the flight was delayed for an hour."
Pros: "On time despite ground hold"
Cons: "Having flight attendants board with 4 bags and taking most storage"
Pros: "Some of the flight attendants were helpful, some were not. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The Food was not fully warmed, seats were uncomfortable. The boarding process did not seem organized."
Cons: "A delay in take off"
Pros: "American Airlines Premium Economy was very nice! Great service, lovely plane and overall an experience that I would be happy to have again!"
Pros: "New gates at Philadelphia are beautiful but are hard to get in and out of and the design almost forces people into the hallway which clogs up pedestrian traffic down the corridor"
Cons: "There were no announcements at the gate. So it was very disorganized and people were frustrated I had purchased some fried breakfast rice at the gate and it came in a bag. The woman at the gat told me I had too many bags. It’s not a bag lady. It’s fried rice. She was not friendly. At least smile when you tell me to combine my takeout bag and my very small cross-body bag that is barely big enough to hold my Iphone. Most of the announcements in flight were muffled and hard to hear. The safety speech was really quite terrible. I think someone was torturing her to do it. It was really quite painful to listen to....."
Pros: "Good leg room!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "Flight was very oversold. I purchased an aisle seat and had to give it up to a family that needed to be together. Would be nice if the airlines didn't charge more to pick a seat so situations like this could be avoided."
Pros: "I appreciated that they were interested in the general welfare of the whole craft in the midst of storms."
Cons: "The long delays, the cancellation near midnight, the long lines to what I thought was going to be some type of reimbursement for all the inconvenience at now having to find lodging for the evening, spend an entire day back at the airport, and transport myself from the NEW airport they made available for me from the original airport I had chosen. 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: "the tremendous pressure from the staff, at the American Airlines. Never before experience such a low and virtually feel like an inmate, Just because the person in doing so, was profiling and that is NO GOOD , also the airport is filthy and dirty , Nobody Cares...I will not come again as a tourist to that country.. American Airlines should train the staff to be more courteous and not to ask that many questions ..it feels like you where in Siberia.."
Pros: "How nice the landing was. And how really sort it was"
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Flight depart on time, with possible 5 minute delay. No problem at all."
Cons: "When I checked in my luggage, the price did not include local taxes."
Pros: "Time in air was quicker since we left so late"
Cons: "We spent 45 minutes on the ground in miami waiting for rake off in a hot airplane with no real air. Babies were crying because of the heat and everyone was sweating and complaining."
Cons: "Just never enough leg room❗️"
Pros: "Timely, decent plane and a great crew. Next to me was a family with a young (one-year-old) kid. The crew were so accommodating and went above and beyond to help them. They deserve an award!"
Cons: "Entertainment system: world's worst touchscreen Food: I am sure it can be better"
Pros: "We got there safe"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour because of a flat tire."
Cons: "I loved everything"
Pros: "What did you like? The crew was extremely polite and greeted us when we entered the cabin. Willing to assist us if we needed assistance. they got us seated straight away, and we were off, they brought the beverage cart out straight away, offered us a snack of pretzels and a drink. it was pretty quiet on the flight a lot of tired people who just came from an international flight and just wanting to get home. both flights were on time. I haven't one bad thing to say about American Airlines"
Pros: "Pretty good dinner and breakfast, complimentary wine"
Cons: "Slow flaky entertainment system didn't work at all in some seats, needed multiple 10-minute reboots in other seats. I was unable to complete a 2 hour movie on a 9 hour flight. No internet."
Pros: "Bad weather came in n I was rerouted on Time"
Pros: "I was so happy I could check in online and boarding was a breeze. I actually got to sit by the window when my original seat was in the middle. So nice of the ladies to suggest it to me."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Small plane. Even small carry-ons had to be gate checked"
Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "The waiting time due to the storm and the no communication from the crew . 5 hours strand on the tarmac plus 9 flying."

Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."
Cons: "Trtvr Rrrrrcffrrcr rr crfrr"
Cons: "The video screens weren't very good. You had to tap screen multiple times to select a choice."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had the row to myself and got to stretch out. Great selection of movies. Decent food."
Cons: "One FA seemed visibly annoyed with me; I'm honestly not sure what I did. I am a FA for another airline; didn't identify myself as such but always make sure to not be "that passenger." During two beverage services she did not ask me if I wanted anything but simply looked at me with disdain and sighed loudly. She wasn't rude; just not friendly and I never once saw her smile. She seemed tired and annoyed. I understand that feeling. I've been a FA for 16 years, still junior at my company, but it reminded me how important body language and facial expressions are when we work hospitality and customer service in the public eye. I hope everything is ok with her and I'm sorry if I did something that irritated her. I didn't get her name."
Pros: "Great service and Manchester is way better than flying to Boston"
Cons: "Your rating app doesn't have a N/A option"
Pros: "Really? I just gave 1 star. Your feedback form should be smart enough to realize that."
Cons: "It's not finnair. It's American Airlines. The sears were so cramped that I have a horrible backache. Stop calling it finnair. Several airlines booked tickets on this flight. There's nothing good to say."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Cons: "Carry on luggage does not fit for the whole plane. We had to check and wait for it to be unloaded in the jetway."
Pros: "The comfortable sitting and good hospitality by staff. Timely departure and smooth landing of aircraft."
Cons: "Boarding started almost an hour late but the status never went to delayed (they just said it was on time but kept pushing the boarding time back). Arrived in CLT with only 20 min before the next flight departure."
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost five hours."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Comfort seats"
Cons: "better planes, ice cold inside pkane"
Pros: "The crew was really great. Arrived 25 min early."
Cons: "The snack was terrible. To sweet"
Pros: "Smooth flight overall, no major issues"
Cons: "Older plane, limited entertainment options"
Pros: "I am Premier Silver on United, so boarding was easy and the flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "When I purchased this ticket on Kayak, it was advertised as "Economy" and confirmation was also "Economy" however, United Airlines only recognized as "Basic Economy". This prevented me from using my free upgrade to Economy Plus. It also prevented me from selecting my seat and I got a seat I didn'"
Cons: "Very crowded and had to take the rear seats but otherwise OK."
Pros: "The United flight had a great entertainment package (movies, tv shows, etc). The flight attendant who sat in front of us was awesome,and fun to talk to. She gave us some great tips about things to do while in Athens. The food was good (for airline food)."
Cons: "The flight from Newark to Athens was interesting. The flight changed gates at the last minute. The plane was towed to the new gate, then we found out that it was going to be delayed an additional hour due to required maintenance checks. Actually, I don't mind the additional maintenance checks, I want to arrive alive! We arrived in Athens 90 minutes after our expected time. We got seats in the exit row, however, we couldn't really enjoy the extra legroom for 2 reasons: 1) The exit hatch was right in front of my girlfriend who was sitting near the window. She couldn't extend her feet without kicking the door (I big no-no at 35,000 feet). 2) Our row was right in front of the bathrooms, so I had constant traffic bumping me in left shoulder and lines of people literally standing in front of me for the majority of the flight while waiting for their turn to use the bathroom. They are stepping on my feet constantly or passing gas in my face (I wish I was kidding)."
Pros: "enjoyed getting moved up to economy plus with my premier silver status."
Cons: "the little kid kicking my seat behind me which is no one's fault except the parent which you can't police."
Cons: "No apologies for being delayed. More than 4 hours. No explanation. Nothing. Awful service."
Pros: "I reached home"
Cons: "The WORST leg room in economy The WORST entertainment in economy The WORST customer service in economy The WORST food in economy. And I'm companring with other US carriers (American, Jet Blue, Delta, Southwest) -- NOT even international carriers."
Pros: "On time!! Arrived in Athens early:)"
Cons: "Very poor quality food! For breakfast I received a rock-hard croissant and a fruit plate with 9 grapes and 4 tiny pieces of mellon. The 767 plane was extremely noisy. Good thing I have noise cancelling headphones. Limited selection of movies and for some reason I could not locate any song or music categories."
Pros: "Food was really good and I watched some great movies. I was happy to see that there is much more room on Int'l flights than domestic flights. The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I was pulled out of line when trying to board at the gate for not having a 'stamp' on my boarding pass which would tell them I went through security (even though I had gone through three levels of security!) I was sent back to a gate that had no idea what I was talking about and I became frantic, as my son was about to board a flight that I could not. I finally found what was needed (after being sent through the line and patted down this time!) and I ran back to the gate to be the last person on the plane. It was nerve wracking to say the least. Also my son's video touch screen was not working properly. I realize that it is hard to keep these operating well, with all the use they get, but it was annoying as this happened on the flight over as well."
Pros: "No one booked the aisle seat and for the first time in 10 years I flew comfortably!"
Cons: "We walked from one end of terminal C to the other after already having the gate changed twice!"
Cons: "50 characters isn’t enough to describe the pain I went through. United airlines screwed me. Canceled flight and didn’t compensate me only with a flight to Chicago and a 15 hour wait for the next flight... no hotel or food... no transportation."
Pros: "Seats were quite comfortable. Service pretty great."
Cons: "The only issue was checking my bag at MHT. The guy at the desk had no idea what he was doing, and it made me really nervous."
Pros: "Ended up requesting a refund. Received zero compensation and zero empathy from anyone at United. Left the airport infuriated and drove to my destination instead."
Cons: "Ended up requesting a refund. Received zero compensation and zero empathy from anyone at United. Left the airport infuriated and drove to my destination instead."
Cons: "One of the stewardesses was very unpleasant as she was ha doing out drinks and snacks. When I asked her a question she was very rude."
Pros: "We arrived earlier than expected, the flight crew was attentive and friendly. The gate staff was really helpful in helping to sort out a last minute dilemma"
Cons: "Way overcharge for 3rd bag -$150 for single relatively small bag!"
Cons: "The seat table was badly stained andlooked like it hadn't been wiped in ages. The sack in front had garbage from previous passengers. It was also freezing cold. Food inedible"
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare there were 4 flights boarding at the same time from gate 57-61. People were coming in line from every direction and it took forever to walk a few feet to get my boarding pass scanned. Then about 1hr into flight it's was freezing in the front of the plane, I was in row 5 and the only solution given to several of those who inquired about it was to "take a walk to the back, it's warmer back there". We were dressed for the winter up front and people in the back were comfortable. It was ridiculous. Mind you this was a tiny plane 1 seat on the right and 2 on the left so not a lot of room to stand and move around."
Pros: "We left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Something was wrong with the plane and I miss work"
Pros: "Love the cookie! Good crew."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, boarding was easy."
Cons: "I wasn't informed when I booked that the flight was operated by Air Canda's budget variant, rouge, and not Air Canda as was listed on Kayak. I had no option to select seats, and when we boarded I was seated on the last row by the galley with no reclining seats and the florescent lights were on nearly the whole time on a 10 hour overnight flight. There are no seat back TVs and the free streaming service went down repeatedly just like the AC outlet at our seats (there are only two of these for three people). I booked this trip nearly a year in advance, and I am extremely disappointed that I wasn't informed that I was flying a budget airline on a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Great rate for unexpected emergency reservation to see my gma. They came through"
Cons: "No complaints to note. Left from LAX and the lines were organized and TSA lines were moving pretty fast."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay 8 hours with short notice I had 2 take Uber 90$ 2 Boston airport"
Pros: "Good crew. The crew is very nice and accommodating. On my previous flight with United the crew was Kurt and not so good. Sorry very happy to see how nice and accommodating this crew lunch."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Pros: "Onboard service"
Pros: "Nothing. Never again"
Cons: "Rude and unhelpful. No empathy or concern. Erik"
Cons: "They kept delaying the flight. Finally, I decided to drive 6:30 hours."
Pros: "Online movies and TV"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and initial Customer Service Representative was not helpful at all."
Cons: "I think a whole can of soda is the least that should be provided for any flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours from Manchester, which would have made me miss my connecting flight to MIA"
Pros: "This leg home had nice United staff but bumpy. I got seasick but the cabin folks were kind. The leg out in a small plane was bad with one surly female cabin aide. I will tell United in a separate correspondence."
Pros: "It was a small prop plane but the flight was amazingly smooth."
Pros: "The service since I am handicap"
Pros: "The timely departure and early arrival of the flight. The crew was fast and attentive!! The entertainment was superb- caught up on all my movies. Please continue this flight!"

Pros: "Staff friendly, quick boarding, organized no delays"
Cons: "Food I know it's not a restaurant but the quality was below expectations when compared to a few other airlines."
Pros: "Easiest boarding process I've ever had. Terrific!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, small cramped"
Cons: "Our flight had a "mechanical delay" which drug on for several hours (every 30 min there would be another 30 min delay). This eventually meant we would miss our connection to Munich and had to be rescheduled to the following day. The next day we had another round of "mechanical delays" and just barely made the connection."
Pros: "It was timely, and the flight attendant was wonderful!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed by 20 mins which made it hard for the connecting flights"
Pros: "The seating was surprisingly comfortable. There was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Nowhere to store one's belongings in the seat I was assigned. It was difficult to get anything needed during the flight that was stored in the overhead (3 seats back)."
Pros: "Flights were on time, and arrived early at each destination"
Pros: "Absolutely Nothing!"
Cons: "The whole nightmare of flying on United worst travel ever. never again"
Pros: "United got my passengers from origin to destination on time."
Cons: "UA staff tried to intimidate my daughter into redesign sting her registered service dog as a "comfort aninal", and demanded that she describe the nature of the dog's service, IN DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT. UA staff also, at the outset of the flight, attempted to confiscate all food and drink items from passengers, so that UA could immediately sell food and drink items to passengers."
