This was after being forced to gate check bag in group 6 (and 7,8,9) Then luggage offload in Charlotte took forever, and then was on the wrong belt. Baggage staff in CLT were clueless."

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: "Ease of travel. Seamless boarding process."
Pros: "No big crowds trying to board. Everyone had room for their items in the over head. Love the one seat by itself. Very short flight but the one steward still served beverages and cookies."
Pros: "An airplane is an airplane. Yes, they can be uncomfortable, but the cabin crew will really make or break a long flight. The crew on this flight was fantastic."
Cons: "Delaaayyyyyed due to a broken latch on the main cabin door. Scary."
Cons: "choice of meals"
Cons: "Left with plenty of time but: -Terrible traffic! More than 3 hrs -Had to wait 30 min for shuttle -At airport they said flight was via American, other terminal. My paper from Kayak says Air Alaska -Terminal for flight uses separate bldg so shuttles to terminal , more time needed."

Pros: "The beauty that is Oregon."
Cons: "The fact that AA had an issue with THEIR plane which caused me to miss an already booked connecting flight. I ended up spending SEVEN hours in Phoenix waiting for a different flight to take me back to Tampa. The least AA could do is offer to pay for my supper or even a snack ANYTHING would've been nice. It's called customer service. I understand things happen that are out of our control, I also understand what it is to help make people whole or happy."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Not sure why American would fly a plane across the country with no electrical outlets, entertainment options, or food beyond snacks."
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Didn't like being grounded in Charleston because we were on a commuter flight while our AA connections was allowed to land in Charlotte and leave without us. Did not know AA operated flights receive priority at the airports over their inferior non-AA operated "partners". Will look for alternatives to AA in the future. Flight too short for a drink! No lodging because not their fault! Okay, storm not their fault, faulty policy is!"
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Pros: "They were absolutely fantastic on checking on me, food, service, flight in general. Would recommend to anyone!!!"
Pros: "Easy flight, friendly crew."
Cons: "Girl next to me being sick the whole time"
Pros: "Flight attendants made sure my family and I were comfortable"
Cons: "Small leg room space"
Cons: "No usb or wall chargers. No inseat entertainment and glitchy wifi entertainment"
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for the wine."
Pros: "Had a great flight and attendants on the plane were helpful."
Cons: "I paid for an upgrade to Business and my seat would not recline. Spent the whole 6 hours in one position."
Pros: "The beverage service and entertainment was fantastic!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were slightly roomier."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight. Had to pay my suitcase extra (60 dollars)."
Pros: "The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They were built for Asians & old people who were smaller. Please understand that the descendants of Norway Germany & Native Americans are large people, we require a larger seat! I was stuffed into this seat so tight that today I will have to see a chirop."
Cons: "The different class of seating was silly to me everyone was at the back of the plane open seats every where but you had to sit in assigned seat"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and professional."
Cons: "Pillow for back support would be nice. More Japanese food choices would be nice also."
Pros: "Nothing. At all."
Cons: "I don't like not having a TV screen"
Cons: "Why would United use a 757 when they know that if the plane is full and there is a strong headwind that the fuel capacity won't get them to their destination! Of course this happened to me. We were diverted to Newfoundland to refuel (after spending 3 hours sitting on the tarmac while the captain arranged to redirect). THEN... the flight crew had been working too long and they had to send another crew which took 4 extra hours. 17 hours from Lisbon to Newark is unacceptable! It could have all been avoided with a larger plane."
Pros: "Not much but it was the best price"
Cons: "The space was so tight I couldn't open the lid to my laptop. I had a small personal item, the gate checked my bag, and there was no room for my feet. I just flew Alaska, delta, American,d Lufthansa recently and none of those airlines were as bad. Like a sardine can. I will avoid United at Ll costs."
Cons: "Second standby adventure of the day got longer as inbound flight was late."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and there were no other flights that day."
Pros: "Smooth flight into Denver"
Cons: "whereupon it printed a boarding pass and luggage tag to Houston for a previous customer who had apparently started but not finished checking in. Now I wonder if United will actually charge my credit card for his flight?"
Pros: "I no longer expect tolerable so that was nice"
Cons: "No food available by the time I ordered. Entertainment was not working unless I had downloaded the app. Battery life limits entertainment"
Pros: "The movies, the crew, the flight itself."
Cons: "The food was horrible. Also, all of my ticket information said Brussels Airlines but there's no such thing. It made it very confusing because on my departure I was looking for Brussels, but it was actually United I needed to look for."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the middle and separated from husband who was traveling with me"
Pros: "Attentive Crew. Departed on time. Arrived 20min early."
Cons: "No power outlets. No USB outlets. Extremely poor Wi-Fi connectivity. Extremely poor Wi-Fi streaming."
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "I guess San Francisco ATC (Air Traffic Control) decided the plane couldn’t leave San Fran until way past our take off time. Then it takes two plus hours to get the plane here unload and refuel and rest. So I missed my connecting flight to Redding. Which meant I had to fly to Sacramento. Then I had a pleasant 3 hour drive on I-5 (can you sense my sarcasm?!) didn’t reach my destination until 5 in the FREAKING morning. Around 8 HOURS LATE TO MY DESTINATION"
Pros: "The crew was fun, courteous, and very helpful. The complimentary refreshments were slightly better than those offered by most airlines."
Cons: "Our flight ended up being an hour delayed. The cabin during the flight was extremely cold, and the attendants finally gave my wife a blanket which was for first-class only because she was miserable. Also, the in-flight entertainment through their wi-if onboard was down for “maintenance” the entire trip."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and made up for the small space."
Cons: "The express plane was extremely tight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and everything was on time."
Cons: "The first class seats I sat in on both flights were so dirty. There was good on the wall next to me food on the overhead area and the backs of the seats. It was disgusting to see how filthy the airline allows the cabin to be. Needless to say I passed on snacks."
Pros: "The plane did not crash"
Cons: "Customer service, being nickel and dimed, the staff told me if I don't like it to fly Jet Blue"
Pros: "On schedule"
Cons: "This was an unfortunate and uncomfortable end to a great trip. The seating area is tight and the seats lack cushioning. I experienced more cramping and discomfort on this one hour flight than on all of the entire 9.5 hrs of preceding flights."
Cons: "Flight got delayed 10 hours and united airlines would do absolutely nothing to accommodate or help out situation in any way"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The whole flight seemed like a sales pitch. Pay to upgrade to our empty seats with a little more legroom. Pay to watch TV cross country (Delta, American, and all others are included). They did have more sales pitches on the screen for 6 hours though. Pay for snacks. Not even peanuts or pretzels anymore. They do give you a disgusting wafer. Flew back on Delta and didn't see any of this. Between this and their recent beating up of customers, no more United for me."
Cons: "got in super late. missed my shuttle. plans impacted"
Pros: "Food voucher"
Cons: "Flight was delayed approx 7-8 times, 7.5 hrs. I arrived at 7:15 am for a 9:20am flight to find that it was delayed. Wasn't notified before leaving home of delay. Was given a 2 food vouchers but very late, 30 mins before boarding time. Paid for two meals already by then. My Friday to Monday trip to see my family was shortened by almost a day. I hadn’t seen them for 3 years. Don't know when I'll be able to see them next. Not happy..."
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working"
Cons: "I could have driven the 1600 miles faster than I did using United Airlines. Zero notifications that could have saved me time sitting in the airports that I traveled to."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was great."
Cons: "I HATED that our flight was delayed. Not even delayed once or twice, but a total of 6 times?! thats just ridiculous. Sitting in the airport for over 6 hours should NEVER be tolerated."
Cons: "The temperature inside the plane was too hot"
Pros: "The entertainment was free because of the delayed departure."
Cons: "We left late (again) and the crew was not very friendly."
Cons: "On trip to medford my lugguage got left in san fransisco and was never delivered to me so i went back to airport and it was just sitting there, no one there to give it to me so i had to look for someone to open room so i could get it. Then From medford to san fransisco There was no explanation cancellation, no one at counter for hours to figure out something else, no apology for inconvience, no vouchers for hotel or food since i had to stay at one since flight left so early in am. I had less then 10 mins to get from medford plane to denver plane. Thats running and up 2 flights of stairs and getting to door in nick of time. I missed a day of work and basically unless an emergency i wont fly united again."
Cons: "My bag was misplaced after being gate checked, it ended up going to baggage claim, not a huge inconvenience, but after all our trouble with United, it was frustrating and we were tired and not interested in waiting for our bags (which is why we took carry on only in the first place)."
Cons: "Overbooked both my flights and I was a last minute addition to the first flight."
Pros: "It was on time . Everything else was ok. No wi fi connection they pologise for that intertaiment was down??"
Pros: "The movie selection was great"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Cons: "I'm usually a patient person, but my flight was supposed to leave at 525am and didn't leave until 730. This was the first flight in the morning. We boarded, waiting 30 minutes on the plane, they told us to get off because there were computer issues. Why wasn't that checked before everybody was boarded? Once we got on the plane we had to wait another 30 minutes for the crew to get someone's luggage from under the plane. Why wasn't that done while the computer was getting fixed? I didn't get to Denver until 1040am missed my flight and didn't get to get on my connection until 500pm. In the meantime I called to get on a different flight at 1, but the guy on the phone didn't actually book me a seat. The gate people weren't very nice."
Pros: "Flight attendants were cordial and helpful"
Cons: "Seating in the last row or rows made deplaning very slow."
Pros: "Crew was great even on overnight flight"
Cons: "Plane was late then sat on run way for 30 minutes. Over one hour late."
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: "It was a very well ran flight, both fights were what you would expect from an airline service. Overall satisfied."
Pros: "Got $200 voucher for overbooking"
Pros: "That flight had no entrainment. So it wasn't bad, just not available on that short flight"
Pros: "Short lines at Medford airport"
Cons: "Small plane"
Cons: "Not enough time between flights!"
Cons: "My connecting flight was sent without me- I paid for upgraded seats that I never got, they tried giving me a connector that didn't get back to Baltimore until 1030pm after my day started at 3am for a flight at 5:30am... Then finally got a connecting flight into Virginia and had to drive 2 hours to get my car from Baltimore. Never flying United again."
Pros: "Nothing. The people were rude the flight was late, the seats were cramped."
Cons: "Everything. I can't say anything about how bad it was."
