Pros: "We liked the effiency and politeness of the staff. We enjoyed the movies, the food was better than normal."

Pros: "Cerainly boarding is easy and the seats are quite comfort in business class."
Cons: "the service, considering this was the highest level of service on these flights was less than I would have expected"

Pros: "First class on TUS to ORD flight - very good flight attendant who was very pleasant, attentive and knowledgeable... she remembered which drink I was having."

Cons: "Horrible long delays."

Cons: "The seats were so close together! I was between two men, and one was spitting tabaco into a cup. It was terrible."

Cons: "Not much offered on domestic flights."

Pros: "I wish I could remember the names of our flight attendants- but they were wonderful and really took time to get to know passengers! They were so friendly and went above and beyond in any of our requests. Loved them!"
Cons: "It would have been nice to have individual screens for such a long flight, but I wouldn't say that's a complaint. The flight was fine."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Personnel; lack of customer service"

Cons: "Kayak repeatedly listed the departure gate as D36 when it was D17."

Cons: "It was cancelled"

Cons: "The tsa in chicago was very unorganized. The tsa workers were extremely rude."

Cons: "Flight connection was too close. Delays in leaving Nairobi made us almost miss this flight"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on board"

Pros: "Was able to store my carry on and arrived early"

Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."

Pros: "The food, entertainment and crew were satisfactory."
Cons: "I did not like that my original flight was flat out cancelled. It made for a stressful trip."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "There was water dripping from the vents. When I tried to inform the flight attendant, she shut me down so fast I couldn't believe it. All she had to do was reassure me that it wasn't a safety issue. Her attitude was like she was tired of telling passengers that it was perfectly normal. Very unprofessional!"

Cons: "Allergic to cat/dog dander. Had dog with no kennel in window seat of my row. I was on aisle seat. As we all got up to let the owner go to the bathroom a dog followed walking on my seat. For the last hour and a half of the flight the dog Sat on the owners lap. My allergies and asthma begin to flare up prior to landing . Not a pleasant flight ."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled, there is nothing to rate except the inconvenience it caused me and my fiancee who were traveling back home for a business meeting."

Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."

Pros: "Individual entertainment. Wowww!"
Cons: "Seat was a bit tiny. Free food snacks were not quite good."

Pros: "Smooth"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "American Airlines was amazing fed you a good meal fun crew good entertainment had 3 glasses of wine desert , and hot biscuits and coffee before landing was a great flight."

Pros: "Great staff and leg room/comfort. Food, drinks and entertainment was superb! Comfortable Boeing 787."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "When the arrival time of the connecting flight was changed, we chose another set of flights."

Pros: "ON TIME!!!!! Nice folks, smooth and safe."
Cons: "Got through the extensive security lines to USA one hour before scheduled departure and looked at the screen which said 'final boarding' which was not true and made us panic a bit, running for the gate. It did board and leave on time but not an hour early. This flight was night and day different than our ORD to Dublin flight of 5.12.17 which was 5 hours delayed and do stressful."

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant, boarding efficient."
Cons: "Food was very mediocre but nothing new in air travel. The biggest complaint is that there was no individual light available for each person to sue to read. On a transatlantic flight of 10+ hours that is not overnight, it is a bit much to expect customers to fill that much time if one cannot read because the lights aren't working. The flight attendant said it was a very old plane as the reason why, not exactly what one wants to hear. Also, the plane was different than the one I prepaid my seats for, thus the money I spent on bulkhead seats was wasted as we just got two normal seats. Not a good experience."

Pros: "wifi was great"

Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Flight on time."

Pros: "Awesome crew. Comfortable seats. Great entertainment options. Good food."

Pros: "Nice crew. Chairs were comfortable."
Cons: "Not enough movies! No individual screens. Plans had dirt stuck all along the air vents"

Pros: "Fast check in, timely take off & arrival Excellent and friendly service"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "One of the crew members, Walt, was amazing."
Cons: "Everything else was a NIGHTMARE. We bought our tickets in Nov. I paid for an upgrade and assigned seats in FEBRUARY. We flew May 13. Not only did they RESELL and REASSIGN our seats to someone else -- we could not get a refund for the upgrade we paid for. To add insult to injury, the only seats they could give us were in the back of the plane next to the toilet. Having heard so many similar nightmare stories about American Air I can say I will never ever fly American Air again. We now have to spend our firrst few days home from vacation disputing that charge, writing letters and making calls to get that damn refund. I will be sharing my discontent far and wide. Whoever at corporate thinks it's best practice to sell and sell and sell seats and live with the aggravation of the customers has an upside down notion of how to run a successful business. NIGHTMARE."

Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Crew was friendly and professional."
Cons: "Passengers are packed in like sardines. All carry on bags must be checked at the gate as the overhead bins are too small to accommodate anything except a small personal bag or jacket."

Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "After traveling on 9 flights during a 2.5 week period, this crew mishandled my bag leaving damage to the handle and top of my bags."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and informative"
Cons: "It felt a bit cramped, but overall nice seats and movie screens"

Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."

Cons: "The flight attendant was arrogant. This is her job... just for $$$"

Pros: "The in flight entertainment was perfect, new, and relevant. I also had an empty seat between myself and another passenger so my legs weren't as cramped."

Pros: "My flight was very short. It was a straight flight and there was no turbulence. Flight pulled off when it was supposed and early landing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"

Pros: "The new Dreamliner was amazing. However my great experience was also directly a result of the unfilled nature of the plane. This gave so much room to the passengers, food service was fast and plentiful, and crew was in a good mood."

Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."

Pros: "The gentlemen from the wheelchair service who was there to pick us up when we arrived in Heathrow went above and beyond his duties. Instead of passing us over to another wheelchair attendant as we needed to switch terminals, he stayed with us thru the terminal change until we were on the airplane. We needed to get our boarding passes at Heathrow from a different airline and he helped us with this. Kudos to him!! The attendants on this flight were very helpful when my husband was having a diabetic reaction and I was vomiting form air motion sickness. We were a mess!! However the flight attendants were sure we had a wheelchair in Chicago and helped us with our bags as we were exiting the plane. Nice Job"

Pros: "Nice plane, very friendly pilot."
Cons: "Delayed flight."

Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"

Cons: "My flight was delayed 9 times with 9 different gate changes. I was supposed to arrive by 10PM and didn't land until 2 AM."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Now have to sleep in airport because connecting flight was missed. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Another flight was issued"
Cons: "My original flight schedule was cancelled"

Pros: "Flights was ontime"
Cons: "Plane was too hot, and then way to cold. This seems to be a re-occurring problem. I am not sure why the plane can't just be set to be be 68-72 degrees. There is no need for it to be above 80 or less than 60."

Cons: "Unable to depart due to pilot wanting windows washed. Created significant delay. Had to rebook flight for next day. Additional cost as a result. I will seek a refund which was due to the delay."

Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."

Pros: "Crew and workers were all pleasant and polite"
Cons: "United knows they can't fly into Orange County after curfew. This was handled terrible. After 4 delays. All weather related we were finally boarded. Yay hope. Not even to our destination. Boarded to LAX. Now we are seated. The announcement pilots won't fly. No. It is illegal for them to fly. Why not tell customers. Don't blame pilots. Also you know the rules why board us. Even if we flew we still needed a two hour ride to SNA. It was sheer luck I called and was told another flight leaving in 8 min at gate 14 ten gates away. My running to catch that flight was not good. I made it panting. Arrived in LAX at 2:00 a m Not my destination. If nothing else people should be compensated by United don't you think?"

Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"

Pros: "The flight to OHare was fine. No problems whatever. There was no entertainment. The juice was ok."
Cons: "The snack I could not eat for dietary restrictions."

Pros: "Good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "seats were a little less shitty but still shitty"

Pros: "Ive had a hip injury so walking is problematic. I was worried about my 45 minute transfer time in Ohare. The boarding attendant at Charleston ordered a wheelchair to meet me. I got to my plane as it boarded. A distance I couldn't have walked, much less in the time allotted."
Cons: "Not enough time between the two flights for the distance between the two terminals."

Pros: "Excellent service and friendly staff"
Cons: "Absolutely not enough room to stretch your legs"

Pros: "Lots of turbulence"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Very complicated boarding. Unpleasant and arrogant gate attendand, she did not show too much of interest in helping us. My husband and I traveled together, but we were seated separately. She changed our seats, but the seats were still not together just in the same row."

Pros: "The O'Hare bathrooms, which I shaved in? Everything else about the flights and the airports were awful, like of course"

Cons: "Delayed three times"

Pros: "Flight was n time, boarding was fast and efficient."

Pros: "Nice plane for a small one"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating during the flight"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours, with not much explanation"

Pros: "The crew was very unrespctful spasialy her name is nachelle"

Pros: "Service and crew were excellent. Seats had extra legroom built in."
Cons: "Terrible internet service for the $8.99 I paid. Also the early departure of passengers who have to catch connecting flights doesn't work when those passengers are in window seats. Just get people off the plane and keep passengers from starting conversations with the crew while exiting"

Pros: "My daughter and I sat in Economy Plus which was great because it was towards the front and plenty of leg room. We both have long legs, so this extra comfort made our flight much better and relaxing."
Cons: "One of the Flight Attendants was crabby and unpleasant. This was the first time I've ever had an unpleasant Flight Attendant on a United Flight. I travel quite a bit for business and always try to fly United. I always carry a large purse which always stays on my lap and her and I went back and forth because she insisted that I put it on the floor under the seat. This really upset me."

Pros: "So glad the flight left on time and we actually arrived early!!"
Cons: "'Snacks' were spicy and they should be aware not everyone likes spicy food"

Pros: "On time, boarded quickly, checked my carry on all the way through Tampa for me"

Pros: "Everything was as described"
Cons: "Small plane"

Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."

Pros: "Everything went smooth"

Pros: "Plane was clean, crew was efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare, baggage took 20-30 minutes on the opposite end to be unloaded."

Cons: "Due to the frequent gate change updates from Kayak we ended up at the wrong terminal. Because of this we were late for our flight which they would not let us get boarding passes for so they bumped us to a flight 2 hrs later. After getting through security we realized the original flight was delayed. We asked the airline if we could get back on that flight and we were rudely told no without a good reason. So we sat for what ended up being and hour looking at the plane we "missed" before it took off. No using United again."

Pros: "Flight was uneventful. Went smoothly."
Cons: "Seating wa very cramped. Long legged people were shoving their knees into my husband's back and I was unable to stretch my legs. Also, there was not a free gluten free snack available."

Cons: "Flight attendants slow to bring drinks around"
