For a delayed flight, and one that most choose because of the amenities, no one apologized for the lack of amenities. A simple, “we are truly sorry” announced to everyone would have gone miles. Instead, the crew kept trying to almost conceal the total lack of available entertainment and even feign like it might “sort of work” until the last minute. I was traveling with my life partner, who intended upon and did work the whole flight (despite zero internet, even for the little time avail that we are aware of when traveling to/from PR), but also with a just turned 6 year old who had been looking forward to using “his own” screen for the last 2 weeks. Underwhelming to say the least. The crew’s apathy didn’t help.
…sat in a window seat with a window that was either dirty or fogged over and couldn’t see out. …the flight was delayed and late for unspecified reasons.
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "More seat room"
Pros: "A very pleasant experience, nice crew."
Cons: "The American Airlines staff seemed like they were in a bad mood, not very friendly. Nothing outrageous though."
Pros: "Short connection times"
Cons: "Being on time because of short connection time"
Pros: "Fast boarding and efficient, friendly crew. I paid for an upgraded economy seat, which had more legroom and fit my body (more or less)."
Cons: "AA's seats seem to have gotten thinner in recent years, so I find them less comfortable. There's no in-flight entertainment; you have to download the airline's flight app on your device and stream from there."
Cons: "Never made it. Stranded at LAX."
Pros: "Was not long enough"
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: "On time despite ground hold"
Cons: "Having flight attendants board with 4 bags and taking most storage"
Cons: "A delay in take off"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, with adjustable headrests. Also, there were outlets to charge devices."
Cons: "No free WiFi."
Pros: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Pros: "Generally, the stewardess are new (slow service), but very kind and considerate."
Cons: "I take this flight quite a lot. These comments are for this flight (MIA/MSP) - but not necessarily only for this exact flight that I took on 10/1. To be clear - the crew says "this is not AA", it is Republic Airlines". Well, they must think of themselves very poorly. Their food in first class is always changing - oh, I meant only the names for the same exact meal change. "Grilled Chicken with Couscous", "Grilled Chicken with Risotto", etc.. - all cold meals as they do not have an oven/microwave? on the plane. They are charging first class international prices for economy domestic service. For this amount of money, they should have better meals and a more modern airplane. The first class is always freezing (even in summer) while the rear cabin where the crew stays when not working, is hot. So if they make the first class happy with the correct temperature, they cook in the back. I have also observed more people than usual coughing and getting colds - both ways - than any of the other flights I take regularly (over 115,000 miles on AA this year). I would suggest that AA make it clear that Republic must offer better service to their customers - especially for the large airfares they are receiving."
Pros: "The service was excellent and the flight on time."
Cons: "The seats have been refurbished In the narrow size."
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: "Very long time since I have being on s flight with tv in the aisle , and not on headrest .. this is s international flight ."
Pros: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."
Cons: "the drink service came through pretty late in the flight. i asked for hot tea. a few minutes later i was provided with extremely hot tea. about 10 minutes later it was a temperature i could tolerate drinking. about 1/3 through the drink i was required to throw away my drink because we were preparing for landing. i understand that, fine. bad timing. it’s just a drink. what was unsatisfactory is that the attendant rudely commented “you have to give us your drink. it’s not that long of a flight.” the comment made me feel like i had done something wrong even though i had just been drinking my tea as soon as it was at a drinkable temperature. i was not impressed with the attendant. also, there weren’t any biscotti cookies."
Pros: "You get what you pay for. I don’t recall the fair but this was a bargain and we were safe."
Cons: "Not enough water served. More snacks please"
Pros: "Given our delay, our lovely stewardesses made me feel super calm and comforable."
Cons: "Completely out of the crews control but we were stopped mid takeoff due to the cold weather and macchanical issues. I completely understand better safe than sorry but it was just very jarring having to be stopped mid takeoff rather than just triple checking while we were still on the ground."
Pros: "FUE OPERADO POR AMERICAN AIRLINES Y EL VUELO DESDE TAMPA DESPEGO TARDE Y PERDIMOS LA CONEXION A JAPON TODO EL DIA EN EL AEROPUERTO SOLO HASTA EL DIA 21 VAMOS A SALIR DE LOS ANGELES A TOKIO SI TENEMOS ALGO DE SUERTE MUY MALO EN VERDAD NOS ENTIMOS ENGAÑADOS"
Pros: "Ummmm the only thing I like is we landed in Maui safely. Pilots and crew seems friendly."
Cons: "We almost this flight because the connection flight can't find an open gate to park the plane. Inside the air plane kids got hungry, we were ready to order $$$ meals and they said they didn't have it anymore. Seriously?! 6+ hours flight and no meal. Then I asked for 3 pretzel and they gave it to another passenger, so they only have 1 left supposedly!!! Come on!!"
Pros: "Decent amount of bathrooms"
Cons: "I was shocked that we weren't provided better and more food for an expensive and lengthy flight. Also there were no head rest tv's. They plane seemed very old"
Pros: "First Class seating was of course better than economy."
Cons: "Flight to Maui had no Mai Tai drinks available, no heated towels, no dessert, barely any service from the flight attendant(s)."
Cons: "Just never enough leg room❗️"
Pros: "There was an extra seat and they allowed me to move there. Superb entertainment!!"
Cons: "They guy behind me kept kicking my chair"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Cons: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Pros: "In General, as a premium passenger, I usually enjoy the premium cabin experience; however, it was lacking this time."
Cons: "In first class, three/four of us requested headphones/headsets; the flight attendant informed us that there were no headphones/headsets; thus, we could not watch any programming In first class, there were two meal options, but one was almost immediately depleted before the flight attendant arrived at my row."
Pros: "The plane was so modernized. Loved the fact of the inflight movie options!!"
Pros: "Got to watch movies"
Cons: "Couldn't eat the meal both had dairy no other choice"
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Small plane. Even small carry-ons had to be gate checked"
Pros: "thay we didn't crash"
Cons: "1. To didn't work 2. Give us pillows"
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."
Pros: "Great service and Manchester is way better than flying to Boston"
Cons: "Your rating app doesn't have a N/A option"
Cons: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "We flew safely!"
Cons: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"
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 plane, a 380, had comfortable seats, fewer occupants, more and easier access to bathrooms, did not like the larger plane I flew on going to Australia, it held 700 persons could physically reach the lights and when on, they didn't disturb anyone vegetarian food was delicious and nutritionally sound and varied love the soft blankets"
Cons: "not a very good choice of current movies"
Cons: "Flight was four hours late departing. Pretty much ruins the whole flight."
Pros: "Expected turbulence and crew was honest about it and even changed the flight path to Logan to avoid it. It was bumpy but not that bad. free soft drinks and cookies :)"
Cons: "Checkin was a nightmare! Not clearly marked and very confusing at LAX."
Pros: "I thought frontier was worst but american is not too far because american flight can not fly on time."
Pros: "Everything. A bit skewed as we flew first class which we don’t usually so. All was great!"
Pros: "One of the crew members was very good"
Cons: "The food!!! Would have been nice to have screens for the movies"
Cons: "On time departures"
Cons: "It was a NINE hour flight and there was NO FOOD provided!!! Why do we have to pay extra for the crappy food??"
Cons: "THE TEMPERATURE WAS FREEZING. THE COLDEST FLIGHT IVE EVER BEEN ON AND IVE BEEN ON A LOT. IT FELT LIKE IT WAS 30-40 DEFGREES."
Cons: "Seats too narrow."
Cons: "Take off was delayed by 75 minutes due to mechanical problem and paperwork. Crew and flight were fantastic but it seems they could have discovered the mechanical problem prior to everyone boarding the plane."
Pros: "It landed."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and disorganized. The seats are ridiculously small n close. The cabin was uncomfortably hot. The seats literally reclined 1 inch, no joke. No food on a 6 hour flight. The tv screens where 20 years old n the size of an iPhone plus. The flight just sucked and United has taken a huge dive in my opinion of them."
Pros: "United Airlines Flight 202 Left on time. It was a Boeing 777 so it had a lot of room."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed focused only on the small First Class section and rushed through everything in the Economy Class. They rushed through the "Food Service" and didn't want to answer questions about what is on their menu. The menu was removed from the magazines in our row. Fortunately, we brought our own snacks. The Economy CLass cabin had a terrible odor. It really smelled. Maybe they should clean the plane once in a while. United Airlines ALWAYS has issues with entertainment. You MUST download their App to your cell phone. Then, they allow you to connect to their entertainment system. If you don't, you cannot access WiFi without paying $26 for the flight ... the WiFi access is inconsistent and limiting and doesn't always work so the download doesn't always complete. This was a nine hour flight from Hell. I think I prefer Frontier Airlines. Although the airlines make you pay for everything now, at least you expect some attention and food options and a plane that doesn't smell. It was nauseating. Don't even ask me about the "Miles" that they keep screwing up ... RAY HANANIA"
Pros: "The crew was top notch."
Cons: "Window was missing the shade. Food was tough (roast beef)"
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."
Cons: "There is no compassion with United"
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: "Flight attendant had a lot of attitude. I live in Maui so I'm used to the whole "I'm local and you're not" entitled attitude some locals have, but it was completely uncalled for and unprofessional to do this to visitors. She literally asked the passengers where they were from and then launched into how she was local and it was her way or the highway. She was also really incompetent at the job overall. She gave me attitude and anyone that required her to do her job."
Pros: "The agent in San Francisco was awesome and even went out of her way to bump me to a better seat. Leaving Portland was easy, crew were super organized!"
Cons: "No entertainment systems were working at all. Leaving San Francisco to kahului we had so many unruly young adults that were just out if control. They kept switching seats, spilling alcohol all over me and my stuff and the flight crew could not care less. We even had an older Asian flight attendant on flight 1749 that was just overwhelmed for the job. She would hand the person on the isle a handful of pretzels and say 'here, pass these out'. The other flight crew members made it worse by treating her poorly. You could tell they didn't like her and were agitated by her. Instead if being polite and educating, they were exasperated and impatient. Overall was super disappointed. I have flown United so many times back home to Maui and was always so please and excited to brag about how great United was. Not this time. Thanks for reading."
Pros: "First flight on a 777 ... quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "It's a long day in a plane but necessary if you want to travel to bucket list destinations!"
Cons: "Thank you for the great flight!"
Cons: "2 of the flight attendants were not friendly and one was flat out rude. They handed out some form that needed to be filled out before we entered Hawaii. When I asked for a pen she said they don't hand out pens and to start asking neighbors, which didn't have any either., however when she came back around to pick the forms up and some people didn't have them filled out she reprimanded everyone and kept saying you had 5 hours to fill these out. Her communication skills were not what I expected and her lectures were not necessary."
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, flight was on time, all was OK. Nothing to recommend particularly. d"
Cons: "Few choices in beverages and food. No decaf or green tea or coffee except instant coffee. "Snack" was nothing much."
Pros: "Power plugs"
Cons: "No tvs"
Pros: "Lots of drinks. 10 free Movie options. Snacks. Blankets. Great!"
Cons: "Tiny crowded space, and they wouldn't let economy use the front two restrooms"
Pros: "Boarding was really easy"
Cons: "Not only you have to pay for checking one bag, not only you have to pay for a poor meal, you also have to bring your own device to watch a movie!"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "Love the cookie! Good crew."
Pros: "fast comfortable flight thanks to an upgrade."
Pros: "People next to me"
Cons: "Promised a reclining seat...was in front of exit...NO recline...in pain the entire trip"
Cons: "Headphone jack was also broken on this flight , and my seat also did not go back"
Pros: "The staff was nice and professional"
Cons: "Why should we have to pay extra to have a little extra leg room? Aren't fares high enough? Also, I had a credit for directv but was charged again."
Cons: "In flight wifi not worth money. Cant stream on paid for inflight wifi. Didnt want to watch pre loaded movies on united app. Should have free in flight movies that you dont have to pay for or allow you to stream what you want on paid for wifi."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay 8 hours with short notice I had 2 take Uber 90$ 2 Boston airport"
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."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and initial Customer Service Representative was not helpful at all."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours from Manchester, which would have made me miss my connecting flight to MIA"
Pros: "too crowded, seats small and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable and felt like a very old mattress in desespertly need of replacement"
Pros: "Boarding was very smooth, and flight was very timely (landed early)."
Cons: "Male flight attendant was extremely rude. I was asleep when the food was being served and politely asked for a tray of food once I woke up. Fight attendant that I asked was at the time collecting trash and snapped back saying that he had to finish what he was doing first. After about 10 min the lady attendant walked by so I simply mentioned that I was waiting for my food in case he had forgotten or was busy. She asked if I had mentioned it to the man attendant and I told her that I had and that I was simply waiting. She proceeded to go to him (not sure what she told him), but he later came by and angrily handed me my tray of food and annoyingly explained that he had to finish handing the trash In order to then handle my food. I told him that I completely understood, and he AGAIN snapped back saying "oh really? Because I heard you were complaining!" And walked away. The rest of the flight he proceeded to ignore me. I had been nothing but polite to him. The lady across the isle was looking his way and the man next to me made a comment to me that I had done nothing wrong and mentioned he he noticed how rude the attendant was to me. That even if I HAD complained, he was in no place to confront a customer about it. Regardless, I hadn't even complained one bit."
Pros: "Easiest boarding process I've ever had. Terrific!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, small cramped"
Pros: "Nice boarding and effective attentive crew."
Cons: "Well it was over 5 hours and we got a miniature bag of spicy mixed stuff."
Pros: "Getting there."
Cons: "Seated me in back. Made me board last. Had to walk all the way back up to the front of the plane to put my bag in the rack. 180 people with only 2 restrooms in the back. Much of the time there were people standing in line right over me waiting. Lots of bumping and grinding with my fellow passengers."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed by 20 mins which made it hard for the connecting flights"
Pros: "Getting there."
Cons: "flight crew could give a sh!t. Had to connect and came in late, made no assistance to get connecting passengers off first. Tv option sucks. Have to pay to watch anything. Couldn't even watch plane progress. Pay for that too. Only thing on is a cooking show. And yes you have to pay for food. Interesting. Food is decent though. That was a plus. All but one of the crew seemed pissed about being there. I know passengers suck. At least the guy that looked like Tim meadows from snl was nice. A 5 hour flight and they plane has no wifi (I get it) but also no charging ports??? Just gives the feeling of being held hostage for 5 hours and the only savior is your Visa. I'd hate to see how parents with kids handle it."
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: "Plane was on time"
Cons: "Plane was crowded and seats were small and crammed"
Pros: "Flights were on time, and arrived early at each destination"
Cons: "for this 6hrs flt I feel for the price of the flt you need more variety of foods served without a cost."
