Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Not much maybe just the boarding"
Cons: "The staff needs to be retrained a lot like many police personal and subsequent Police departments. The first class is literally coach with a slightly nicer seat. They treat you like cattle at American Airlines. If you have another option take it."
Pros: "Miami based cabin crew were nice, but they sat in the back of the plane and talked to each other then whole flight. Pretty unprofessional. Chicago based crew from start to finish were fantastic."
Cons: "Miami crew from checkin to boarding were rude, demeaning and unhelpful in this extreme situation. Really rude, particularly the gate boarding pass girl. Haven't you learned your lesson about being rude to passengers yet? I won't be choosing AA again. Your loss, I fly a lot."
Pros: "Meal provided was excellent"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "nothing lousy flight"
Cons: "treat people with respect"

Cons: "in cabin air quality odorous and poor"
Pros: "The crew was great. The seat was adequate but NOT comfortable. The request/requirement for only the wheelie bags to be in the overhead and everything else to be under the seat was EXCELLENT. Thank you for organizing the amount of “stuff” people carry on to the plane."
Cons: "I needed a little back support pillow..."
Pros: "Good flight good crew"
Cons: "Hated the connection from terminal 5 to terminal 3 we should not have to go through the departure lounge this added 10 mins or more into a very tight connection."
Pros: "The pilot made up for a lot of time. The flight was said to be 1 hr 40 minutes about but we touched down after about only 1 hour in the air. Deboarding was quick."
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times. We eventually boarded and then spent another 30 minutes waiting to taxi. Another narrow plane with not much room."

Pros: "Entire flight crew was friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "Comfortable wifi enabled jet."
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2hrs. Inbound aircraft mechanical trouble. No info provided by airline. Maddening 10 minute rolling delay. "Your flight is boarding in xx(10) minutes and no airplane is at gate. It's just ridiculous."
Pros: "We got home early"
Cons: "The sandwich was auwful"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Time of flight and on time flight"
Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"

Pros: "USB Outlets are nice to have"
Cons: "Nothing was bad on this flight"
Pros: "We barely made our connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed nearly an hour due to crew not showing up on time. Crew blocked aisle as passengers were boarding. Crew did not assist people who needed to make connecting flights by keeping other passengers from blocking the aisle after landing.. Airline did not seem to care about all the chaos caused by being so late."
Cons: "Both of my flights, to and from Europe were delayed. Missed both connections which caused us to get to our final destination hours late. Thing is, they don't even seem to care. We will never fly BA again"
Pros: "The onboard entertainment has definitely improved. Nice to see how organize is the boarding process when compare to other local airlines."
Cons: "I was seating in the front of the plane were the seating should be better. The seat reclined minimum. Also, had the had luck to travel next to an amazing mother who was traveling with two small kinds and a dog. Brave woman but nasty flight for me. Need to improve the meals on the international flights. Too mediocre."
Cons: "No charges for cellphones on first class! (Plane looks pretty new as well)"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the seating in biz class on the 787s is great. Lots of entertainment choices also"
Cons: "I think the service lacks to some extent given biz class is the highest level of service offered on this London flight. Seems like American lacks in this area"
Cons: "Crew not that friendly towards everyone."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and organized. The flight even arrived early. Friendly crew and comfortable seats with extra leg room (but these were too expensive). Food was quite good for airline fare."
Cons: "Fee for more legroom."
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Pros: "Friendly customer service, good snacks."
Cons: "No negative actions or interactions."
Cons: "Forced to check my carry on. Took 30min for the bags to come out on the carousel. Which is why i never check my bag."
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Pros: "Schedules were always on time, the price was the best"
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Plane arrived early."
Cons: "Obama ground stop in Philadelphia. No one knew in advance? seating very cramped. Entry to aircraft looked dangerous. It would be easy to fall to the tarmac. Very kow railing."
Pros: "A great ride."
Pros: "The crew moved quickly to get us in the air once we had a plane to get on."
Cons: "I waited in an airport for 10 hours because there wasn't a place to get on. They messed up the schedule then two different planes had problems that made them unsafe. This made me feel uneasy about flying with them at all. Overall not a good experience."
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "Yes & yes."
Cons: "Time delays & changing gates"
Pros: "Nothing very bad experience, the staff very nasty !!"
Cons: "My flight had a big the delay, and they didn't really help us with flight connection they we us hartzell time . Also one is my suitcase did come on time . The seat were very bad for economic class . I WON'T EVER FLIGHT FROM UNITED AIRLINES!!! I ALWAYS TRAVEL THIS MY FRIST TIME USING THIS AIRLINE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!"
Pros: "the arrival on the other end"
Cons: "on tarmac 1-1/2 hours conflicting info....went from delay due to traffic/weather, to extended flight time due to reroute, to asking 10 people to volunteer to get off or 10 would be chosen to have to get off, 4 people volunteered, was holding my breath to be “picked off” when the 4 people were let back on and we took off an hour late. the flight steward spoke so unreasonably fast you couldn’t understand a word she said and she had an overall bad attitude....very disappointing from United"
Pros: "Food and wine was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "Slightly bumpy turbulence, nothing horrible. Lavatory could have been cleaner. There’s nothing special about United; they’re the Macy’s of the sky."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Poor service in first class. Made me feel like I was bothering her"
Cons: "Ended up at Logan."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Little to no updates and wrong information when finally given. I was bumped out of my premium seat. I had to ask for refunds for the upgrade and priority seating they were not offered. And I had to ask for a meal voucher since none was offered. Alaska always has offered fist no asking needed."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Pros: "On time, no issues."
Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Pros: "The person at the United customer service desk was able to book me on the next available flight to Reno (after missing my original flight mentioned above) quickly and efficiently. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "I was late to my original flight and the United personal that I talked to at the gate was very rude. I asked if the plane was still boarding and all she said was go to customer service. I know I gave her a questioning look because this did not answer my original question. She repeated her statement again this time pointing. I would have preferred that she tell me that the flight had finished boarding but customer service could help me get on another flight. I feel that would have been more professional. My new flight was also an hour late"
Cons: "Palm Beach airport organized and nice."
Pros: "The last minute emergency flight was not terribly priced"
Cons: "I was notified when there was going to be a delay, but not notified when my flight was cancelled due to the airline not having a crew. Really? No crew? Gave my mother a voucher for a motel stay, but failed to notify her that there would be no shuttle that comes to the airport after 10pm. She is not great with technology and was stranded at the airport until her re-scheduled flight 12 hours later"
Cons: "Did not make connection due to flight being late"
Cons: "No call cancellation and 8 hour setting in OKC airport tell the next flight out to Houston and Tampa final destination!!!!"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Connection flight times were a little close which caused me to rush from different sections of New ark airport. I almost missed my flight home to Providence so if connecting flights could be scheduled with a little more wiggle room that would be great."
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Cons: "Again flights never left on time."
Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional. The flight also arrived early."
Cons: "If you're going to offer personal device entertainment, you need to offer power outlets. How is that not common sense?"
Cons: "Very good information"
Pros: "The staff were very attentive to passengers and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing they did a Great job and keep a safe and exciting flight."
Cons: "Never happened"
Pros: "The flight was dark"
Cons: "I had to check my bag because their boarding process requires me to board last."
Pros: "Everything on Kayak was fast and simple!:)"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two hours"
Pros: "The flight was to depart at 8:15 but due to delay only leaving at 3;30. Dissapointed as it took two agents to process a replacement flight (first agent offered a connection for a 1.5h flight only)."
Cons: "More attentive staff willing to help and at the very least, be emphatic."
Cons: "The crew was unprofessional and Unprepared"
Pros: "Same as before"
Cons: "Second to last row. Yuck"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "The crew was nice. That's about the only nice thing I can say."
Cons: "First of the seats are awful. Paying for the upgrade is hardly worth it. I'm sure first class is nice but the standard and business are not. Secondly the entertainment is a joke. You have to pay for everything. Only one flight had the TV sets on the back of the seats. The rest were paying for wifi and using your device. I bought the wifi and then it wouldn't work. It was a big waste of $10.00. Thirdly while I know the airline can't do anything about the weather, but they should schedule their flights with more of a layover. I was stuck in the air due to a storm for an hour and my layover was only for an hour. Luckily I was able to make the flight as they were closing the door. All in all just a bad experience."
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"
Pros: "Red eye flights are always difficult, this one was no different."
Pros: "Boarding was well organized. Crew was great."
Cons: "Magazine was old with torn out pages including the inflight food list. Connecting to the in-flight entertainment system on my Apple Mac was confusing and took too long -- it could have been explained better vis-a-vis browser caveats, etc. -- which is too bad because I found a movie I wanted to watch but missed the end as it had taken so long to load the proper software. Seats were too small and cramped."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Seats were changed without warning. I had to talk to people inside to sit with my husband. I booked both tickets together but they separated the reservation without notice."
Pros: "We received a free video service for the flight"
Cons: "First of all the flight was booked for a plane which was too large to land in Providence. So either way we were going to have a longer day and extra leg.....which I only paid for ONE plane change. After running to the gate because my first flight was late taking off, this flight was delayed due to engine issues. The agent had us standing in line for 1 1/2 hours while she tried to figure out what was going on. So instead of taking off at 5:40 pm, we took off at 9 pm and still had to catch a bus from Boston to Providence...HORRIBLE Flight = Long Day/Night"
Pros: "This was a last minute change of planes in an effort to finally get to Denver. SW cancelled two flights delaying my departure by three days. So I paid a huge amount for the one way fare, the flight did get delayed but it did get me there. Thank you United"
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "Long layover"
Cons: "We had a confirmed reservation on tickets that I bought months ago. However, when we went to get our seats, the flight had been oversold. We were involuntarily booted off the flight- even though one on standby got a seat, and another person did not show up- we could have gotten on the flight! We were heavily compensated and the staff were as generous as they could be, but it was completely frustrating and upsetting when you have to go through that, after ahead time planning to be booted off a flight like that."
Cons: "The gate changed twice. We were directed to a bus to take us to our flight to only be made to get back off the bus because we didn't have a crew. No one would tell us anything. Got back into the airport and then 30 minutes later got put back on the bus. The plane was disgusting, smelled like urine. The air conditioning didn't work. Terrible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by more then 2 hours"
Pros: "we were 10 minutes early to the gate"
Cons: "super cramped quarters, like touching legs to the next person the whole squirmy flight close... the plane was made for little people."
Pros: "A very smooth ride"
Pros: "Boarding and deplaining went smoothly"
Cons: "Rear seats didn't recline and we're not as comfortable as other passengers"
