Cons: "Overall good flight however the WiFi didn’t work"

Pros: "awesome"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant. The flight was smooth even though we flew through clouds the whole way."
Cons: "If you don't purchase a seat in advance, the airline puts you in a middle seat even if the plane is not full. I don't really like that."

Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."

Pros: "The direct flight was great and made up for the rescheduled flight time in Memphis."
Cons: "Original Flight did not depart on time."

Cons: "rerouted through Philadelphia."

Cons: "I arrived at the airport and had already checked in and had m boarding passes. For some reason they could not find me when I went to check my bag. After 30 minutes they saw that my seat assignment had been changed and that is why my boarding passes that I had printed at home did not match what their computer showed. I booked this reservation in May and had a seat chosen fairly toward the front. I am 73 years old and the closer to the front I can be helps. When I finally got on the plane to my surprise my seat was the very last seat on the plane across from the restroom. People continued to leave the door open after using the restroom so had to get up and continue to close the door or look at the restroom the whole flight. There was never any explanation as to why they did this. As a result, being lst off the plane, I almost missed my connection as I had to go two terminals over for my connection. At my age I cannot run so I arrived as the last people were getting on the plane. I will never fly American Airlines again."

Cons: "The flight was over an hour late and we were not given an update until we started boarding. No alternatives were offered to those with tight connections."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Issues with times changing for departure"

Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was awful. Food pathetic, my monitor didn’t work, smooshed between 2 overweight passengers. Flight crew lacked simple etiquette."

Cons: "If there was ever a staff that was more eager to shirk responsibility I have never encountered it. At this point you might as well crash the plane and blame a duck. I am personally offended at the shear incompetence of the people employed by your "company.""

Cons: "We waited for seven hours while our flight kept getting delayed. We finally switched to another flight and I don’t even know if our original flight ever got off the ground. Frustrating, irritating, disappointing. American Airlines was a huge disappointment"

Cons: "Rude crew"

Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."

Cons: "delayed on the plane"

Pros: "Got to my destination without any delays"
Cons: "I booked a window seat and sat by a wall instead with no window. Seats were very cramped."

Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Pros: "Timeliness of departure and quality customer service"

Pros: "Timeliness of the flight and the crew were excellent."

Cons: "Too crowded"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Nice landing."
Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "3 hours late. I could have driven home faster than this and saved $800. Once again, disappointed."

Cons: "No wifi, no headsets to listen to tv"

Cons: "American Airlines seemed to be out of sorts on both days of the trip. My connecting flight seat was not assigned until I got to my connecting airport. On the way back, we sat in the plane for over half an hour with no explanation. We then had to de-plane due to engine issues. The attendants at the counter were not that efficient with rescheduling itineraries, as they were often taking breaks, engaging in chit-chat with other workers, and answering personal phone calls during the process. On the connecting flight back, the ground crew "was not ready" for the plane and advised us to "hang out". This made for very little time in finding my connecting flight home (especially because the assigned gate was not even listed in the airport terminal). Not overly dramatic. Just a lot of small things that culminated in a very frustrating travel day. I will likely be avoiding American Airlines in the future."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."

Cons: "3 hour delay due to maintenance issues on two planes."

Cons: "I was so sick of waiting for the delay and remembering my horrible previous flight that I opted to meet my friend who lives in North Carolina and will be driving home to Richmond instead."

Pros: "On time & courteous. & On board service was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "This was an average flight on a small, cramped, RJ/CRJ. There was nothing special about this flight and this review is only to stop the over abundance of emails Kayak sends you begging for a review...."
Cons: "Please read what I wrote above."

Pros: "Left on time."

Pros: "Flight was on-time."
Cons: "I sat in section 4 in economy coach. The ticketing agents REQUIRED everyone in sections 4 and 5 in the back to check our bags, they gave us no choice! We then boarded the airplane to find over half of all the overhead bins empty! This is completely unacceptable to be separated from my carry-on luggage for no reason! There would have been plenty of room for our baggage! One more reason to never fly United again!"

Pros: "Bad attitude with check in agent at Memphis airport"

Cons: "The seats are way too cramped"

Pros: "Seats do not decline and make it difficult to nap, generally not much room. Staff was fine."
Cons: "No snacks at all, not even for purchase."

Pros: "Attendants were cordial and efficient."
Cons: "Because I was seated in the rear near the engines, the announcement from crew were incomprehensible."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and it was too much confusion with no answers. Took forever to be helped. Would not pay or offer a discount for hotel room. Didn't receive a food voucher."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for the next day because the pilot timed out in the middle of the flight. I had to spend the night in a crappy room at the Ramada while others on my same flight got luxury hotels. I got a crappy $20 voucher for food that only got me crappy over priced snacks. It wasn't enough for dinner and breakfast. Since my flight was delayed I missed and lost money to the circus. 1 had purchased tickets for my 5 children my husband and I for a total of $400. The show was at 11 am and I arrived at Richmond at that time. Your airline sucks. To make it worst on my way to Aguascalientes I got stuck in Houston for the night and half a day because yall delayed flights due to snow that never happened. I had to before for food vouchers because I had already gone over my budget with the delay. Overall it was a horrible experience."

Pros: "Very clean and pleasant flight personal great."

Pros: "They were very understanding organization. The flight kept changing . It was like that coming and going"
Cons: "They were very un organization the flight was changed both coming and going it messed my plans up on going and coming and no one cared."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Comfort space"

Pros: "The newer express jets (4 seat rows) had more leg room for Economy seating! Free wifi and movies."

Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "The delay from Cancun caused us to miss our connection. The ground crew gave no help, information, or baseline customer service. We were referred to one person after the other only to finally end up in a 3hour line at customer service where we were told we miss the ground transportation and would have to find our own way home. We rented a car from Hertz and drove to Richmond arriving at 5:30am.... very disappointing."

Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "We did not return on the flight.family illness. From San Francisco to Memphis was terrible."
Cons: "This was the smallest amount of space I have ever sat in on a plane. Totally ridiculous. To shink the amount of space for seating & ile space.. There are three seats per row when there should only be two"

Pros: "Once the plane was good to go everything went smoothly."
Cons: "I don't think it can really be avoided when there is a leak in the plane, but its really hard to be delayed an hour for a flight that takes less than a half hour - and I could've driven that distance quicker."

Pros: "I wasnt on plane long"
Cons: "Our flight was continuously delayed. Our layover actually took than the the drive from DC to Richmond would have taken. I also misplaced my phone on the flight and had no help when I called United looking for assistance today."

Pros: "Flight attendant was fantastic."
Cons: "That it took 2 extra hours to get to Richmond."

Pros: "Courteous perdonality"

Cons: "The noisy children"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly"

Pros: "personal service"

Pros: "I have food a low score as there basically was none. I was offered a glass of water. I paid $74 for an emergency exit seat, and while it gave extra legroom, the seat hardly reclined at all."
Cons: "Lack of food choices, but perhaps not atypical for coach."

Pros: "We were diverted to Austin due to weather. We had to refuel and we were stuck on the Tarmac for over an hour. While all of this was miserable, the Crew stayed active answering questions. The Captain gave several updates and walked the aisle. They even let people off the plane who were trying to get to Austin. For a bad situation this crew made it so much better!"
Cons: "Weather, but what can you do about that?"

Cons: "Nothing was fine"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrive to Richmond, Va for a family reunion and with enough time to make the banquet. The baggage services in Newark didn't pack my bag on my flight, the next one afterwards nor the one after that. When trying to contact to see what's the issue nobody answered the phone, for a hour. The bag claim services from when I landed in Richmond didn't have a clue on how to contact Newark or to confirm my bags will be on the flight for that day. I had to do the research and find it myself while she watched a movie on her iPad. Needless to say if I could give a negative star rating I would. I missed the banquet and received my bags the next day and still couldn't get a reason from either airport on why they got left behind."

Pros: "Even though we were delayed, I still made it to the island within the 9pm hour."
Cons: "Flight was slightly delayed, causing me to miss my connection"

Pros: "Good"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Your crew and service atrocious"

Pros: "The overall comfort and entertainment availabity."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Bad comfort no entertainment and no power outlets"

Cons: "Nothing at all was lacking"

Pros: "The amount of leg room"
Cons: "Snacks are shrinking"

Cons: "Cancelled needed to be rerouted no reason ever given"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth, the crew was courteous."
Cons: "I want able to select my seat and ended up being separated from my sister. We had a 3 hr lay over due to problems with the plane. By the time we got to our destination we almost didn't get a rental car. There was some turbulence on the flight, which is expected. Landing was very rough, came in too fast and hit the breaks so hard I thought I was going to end up in the back of the seat in front of me."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "I like that all flights were ontime"
Cons: "The flight attendant was rude to passengers and my luggage was lost so I arrived at my destination with nothing!! I had to wait at the airport for 6hours for my luggage to be returned to me!"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to pilot and crew never showing up. Customer service didn't offer a hotel or any type of compensation for wasting time and money. Instead they put me on a flight another day which I incurred cost on parking, hotel, food and etc."

Pros: "Seems United played April fools joke on me on my flight on 4/1."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late then suddenly was on time then again was informed it was 2 hours later, Then again ontime"

Cons: "I flew from OKC to Richmond, with one stop in DC. After we arrived in DC my flight to Richmond was pushed back 6 hours in perfect weather. They said it was due to maintenance issues but they didn't provide us with any alternatives. I ended up taking a rental with a nice man to Richmond. A bit frustrating to say the least"

Cons: "Small plane, it was hot. Delayed, missed connecting flight."

Pros: "The price of the flight was affordable."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Seats were uncomfortable & worn. Other airlines offer free wi-fo or entertainment. They did not have enough condiments for coffee. There was not good direction to passengers for boarding."

Pros: "Still deciding"
Cons: "All flights were late."
