Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "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: "Just never enough leg room❗️"
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Pros: "Good connection"
Pros: "The crew was professional"
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Small plane. Even small carry-ons had to be gate checked"
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and we had a safe trip in general"
Cons: "2 hours of delay to take the airplane in Orlando and they changed the flight to Charlotte when it was planned it would go to Philadelphia but it was not a big deal to me."
Pros: "Entertainment and meals"
Cons: "Crew could of been friendlier"
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"
Cons: "You overbooked the flight"
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Cons: "I paid for a non-stop from Seattle to Philadelphia. they cancelled it and only had options that dragged out the trip, caused an extra day of lost work. There was no attempt or offer to ameliorate the inconvenience, or refund the cost -- even an upgrade would have been appreciated. just here's what we have, take it or leave it. I am through with American"
Pros: "Great service and Manchester is way better than flying to Boston"
Cons: "Your rating app doesn't have a N/A option"
Cons: "There was no wifi"
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 entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"
Cons: "Late by 40 min"
Pros: "great service from flight attendance"
Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "I had booked an international flight with British Airways and it ended up being American Airlines. There was no notification of this change and I was not happy. I found AA to be subpar. The plane itself didn't have individual screens and my view was obstructed by other seats. The food was terrible and I got sick later, possibly from the bad airline food. Overall I got to my destination on time, but unhappy as I had chosen an airline and was forced to use another."
Pros: "Our extra leg room seating was fantastic. The crew was delightful."
Cons: "The entertainment was just okay."
Pros: "We were very happy with the crew. They were very helpful and attentive throughout. One of the flight crew members even found me at customs to return a toy we had inadvertently left that belonged to my 13 month old. She certainly did not have to do that, so we are very thankful. Unfortunately, I did not catch her name."
Cons: "Unlike other airlines we have traveled that give priority to people traveling with children, American Airlines does not. That would be something that would be helpful for traveling parents. Allowing people with children to board first and get off the plane first would make things better for all passengers. Planes are also outdated. We have been traveling with other airlines that have individual screens. Much easier for people to travel on long flights when they have individual entertainment."
Cons: "In seat entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks. We were told the hour and a half flight was too short for service. Really??? First class got their drinks."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. I got home at 1 am instead of 10 pm."
Pros: "generally on time"
Pros: "Nothing but delays, cancellations, and rude people"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
Cons: "Really uncomfortable seats, very cramped. Made me feel aick."
Pros: "More available leg room on aisle seat."
Pros: "Quick flight, smooth ride i.e. no turbulence, on-time departure, lovely crew"
Cons: "No real food options as I was starving"
Pros: "Comfortable enough"
Cons: "No films"
Cons: "The plane was very old, the crew was unprofessional and further only provided drink service once in 4 hours. It was mass chaos boarding because the flight that landed was late as well."
Pros: "On-time departure, and on-time arrival. Just the way I like it."
Pros: "Transport to international terminal was a breeze"
Cons: "Very few food vendors open in the international flight area"
Pros: "We got free upgrades to 1st class as we used to get at USAir! Great surprise."
Pros: "the flight was quick"
Cons: "Arriving at the airport and having my baggage checked the crew at AA made me feel incompetent that i didint know the process, even after telling them this is my first flight they seemed indifferent"
Pros: "Associates were nice and knowledgeable. The airplanes were comfortable. Love the onetime performance of scheduling."
Cons: "Unite Airline performance wasn't the good. Also, there was nobody in Chicago to help us with the transferring process."
Cons: "The woman next to me had her computer angled toward my face with the brightness all the way up. On a red eye. It was rude, and she prevented me from sleeping at all on the flight."
Pros: "FREE TV on the plane....all planes should have it."
Pros: "With these short flights on small planes, the best we can ask for is an on-time departure and smooth flying - which is just what we got."
Pros: "That I survived."
Cons: "30 min delay because of a.c. and still was not fixed"
Pros: "The man at the counter gave me a much better seat than I originally had. He was pleasant and very customer-friendly. I can't remember his name but he had brown hair, glasses and a mustache. I was extremely exhausted from my Las Vegas flight and it helped me greatly."
Cons: "Slow, rude check-in staff almost made us miss our flight. Crew was unpleasant to us. One member was wearing a repulsive, visibly dirty uniform shirt. No service due to turbulent flight."
Pros: "It was a small prop plane but the flight was amazingly smooth."
Pros: "I did like that we boarded quickly and efficiently. The attendants were very respectful and kept very quiet throughout their food and beverage service so others could sleep which was quite professional."
Cons: "I didn't like that the only guy on the flight that kept his light on the entire trip had to sit next to me. I was able to sleep regardless, and I understand that it is out of the control of the crew or myself or anyone but that guy... but that was less than desirable. Other than that, great flight."
Cons: "What food? A little snack mix. And once again, needed to get in and out with a shoe horn."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned"
Pros: "Attendants were nice."
Cons: "No entertainment screens & last seat didn't recline."
Pros: "In flight entertainment worked. Staff was friendly."
Cons: "I had no issue with the delay, things happen. I was dealing with a knee injury and the gate plan had us all over the airport. It was quite frustrating to get to a gate in another terminal only to get told we were being moved back to the terminal we had just come from! Then that gate was changed again, involving another long walk on said bad knee!"
Pros: "Comfortable the entire trip! 1st class is the only way I will travel any more especially flying all the way across the country! Thank you United!"
Pros: "The crew members were very friendly"
Cons: "My seat was a tad bit uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight attendant was very rude and made my experience very stressful."
Cons: "There was a sick passenger on board. The crew spent 40 minutes trying to convince him to get off the plane. He refused and after 40 minutes, they left him on and we finally left the gate."
Pros: "We were lucky there was an empty seat on our row of three, which made it a little more comfortable."
Cons: "Some of the crew was not helpful, cramped, no food. Next time will book 1st class for a 3 hr flight. We were delayed 1 1/2 hrs due to weather in Philly, nobody's fault just inconvenient."
Pros: "Easiest boarding process I've ever had. Terrific!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment, small cramped"
Cons: "United was boarding at least TWO flights out of the same gate, at the SAME time. My luggage was delayed and the United agents in philly told me it would be in at 7 pm... It was in at 7 pm two days later. They sent it to Knoxville for some reason? Will not fly United again."
Cons: "No hot food"
Pros: "Professional airline. Comfortable seating. On time. Most impressive airline I've flown with in a very long time."
Cons: "The Flight was late taking off with no explanation. We were on the plane for an hour prior to takeoff with no AC. The cabin was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "It was timely, and the flight attendant was wonderful!"
Pros: "flight attendants were pleasant. plane was clean"
Cons: "I was stuck with commercials for direct tv, two feet from my face the whole trip. I would push the button to turn tv off but it would come back on less than five minutes latter. I had my head phones in listening to personal device but was still distracting. speaker for announcements were extremely loud. the poor lady next to me would jump and then plug her ears. question, if you are allowed one carry on and one personal bag, why do you only have space for a third of the passengers to stow said bags?"
Pros: "honestly nothing"
Cons: "Both my flights were delayed. The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They don't give any food at all. There is no free entertainment."
Cons: "Had to pay for my own shuttle to the train station (an hour away) and sit on an overcrowded train for hours. Extremely disappointed. Flight was canceled do to "air traffic control." No attempt was made to put me on other carrier's flights even though there were open seats with another airline."
Pros: "Boarding was nice, and fast, but inly because I'm handicapped. Crew was pleasant."
Cons: "I didn't like having to pay $4/2hrs for internet/movies for a 3 hour flight....$8 to watch a movie on a 8" screen?? Come on! If you have it available, why isn't it free or included in $600 ticket price? I'm 6'0" tall and weigh 218lbs and I felt like a sardine in a can. Seats are WAY cramped! They probably are comfortable for a 7 year old girl...."
Pros: "Flight left OT."
Cons: "Uncomfortable slimline seats."
Pros: "Everything was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Had to pay for Internet to watch airline movies on my device. Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Never got there due to my first flight being cancelled. BUT, I did see from my emails that this flight was delayed multiple times and then cancelled as well."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed by 20 mins which made it hard for the connecting flights"
Cons: "Tight aisle"
Pros: "The lcd screens in the back of the seats and the availability of watching whatever you wanted was nice. The flight was short so TV cost $5.99. Usually wouldn't do it but the Masters was on so it was a great way to pass the time!"
Cons: "The delay due to weather."
Pros: "Flights were on time, and arrived early at each destination"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Great comfort. Great crew service"
Cons: "The plane was supposed to have WIFI but it didn't."
Pros: "Our flight was two hours late. We received no water on our flight. We had to wait in the cold/outside to get our carry on bags. Flight attendant was not in the mood, and looked like she was taking it out on the passengers."
Pros: "Courteous crew. On time flight( in fact, we arrived in Philadelphia early) love that. Clean plane. Looked new."
Cons: "No drink, no entertainment."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate then delayed again on the plane brocade they couldn't find someone to fill the fuel tank. Once that was complete, we had to wait quite some time before the slip came to the plane to be signed off on. The last issue was that they couldn't get the aircraft pushed out of the gate. The only positive was that my bags arrived this time."
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."
Pros: "Non-existent! !! Canceled AFTER the first leg if the flight....leaving us stranded."
Pros: "The flight was fast a head of time."
Cons: "By the time the flight attendant got to our row, she was out of orange juice. Can't believe they don't give out peanuts or pretzels any more. They do on southwest. Once again the steps boarding plane. Very difficult for me to handle. The walk from one end of the airport to the other."
Pros: "Nice crew. Easy boarding/unboarding. Appreciated having my carry-on (not having it gate-checked). Comfortable for coach."
Pros: "Great service by the crew"
Cons: "On board entertainment did not work."
Pros: "The boarding went a lot faster than I was expecting. The flight attendant on my flight was VERY nice & extremely attentive."
Cons: "There were no food options on my flight, whatsoever. A bag of peanuts or pretzels to munch on would have been nice. The $25 charge for my luggage was quite unpleasant as well. Some electrical outlets/USB ports would be helpful."
