Very little crew service or friendliness.

Boarded late. Missed first landing attempt, landed almost an hour late and missed connecting flight.

Pros: "The airplane remained in the air."
Cons: "The crew went 8 hours without food or beverage service. When asked for water, they directed us to a shared (COVID!) bottle of water near the bathroom. Terrible service and in fact, dangerous."
Pros: "crew was great and moved me further up in the plane to make a tight connection"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Glad we made it back."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time. Attendants in the airline could have communicated much better to give update on delay, but they did not give any information despite several times getting up to ask questions at the main check-in. Many of the passengers were very discouraged. Plane left nearly 2 hours late due to an unclear maintenance issue, paperwork and also no fuel put in the plane until all passengers we on board."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "The breakfast."
Cons: "Mejor"
Pros: "Short flight. Great helpers with my mom!"
Pros: "I did like everything"
Cons: "The attention from the crew"
Pros: "on time departure offered a beverage and snack"
Cons: "we had to circle phila we had to wait for our gate"
Pros: "The entire experience was amazing."
Cons: "Changed my flight time bc of Max 8 which ruined my meeting schedule. Then the outlets in my row were not working so I could not do work or watch entertainment."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding and short flight"
Cons: "The exit row seat that I paid for was uncomfortable so I moved to a regular seat"
Cons: "Delay in boarding due issue with aircraft"
Pros: "Friendly, professional, polite, perfect."
Cons: "Limited legroom is a problem. Otherwise, the flight was fine."
Pros: "Flight cancelled after multiple delays. Huge line with single agent to rebook everyone"
Pros: "I liked boarding first and the additional leg room that I purchased"
Cons: "My TSA Pre was not on my boarding pass even though I have had a KTN since this past May!!"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Super full flight. Nothing but a drink in terms of cabin service."
Pros: "The flight was on time, nice crew."
Cons: "Only pretzels and drink on a 2.5 hour flight."
Pros: "I needed special assistance due to limit of mobility and I have been refused assistance twice"
Cons: "On the top of that my luggage was damaged"
Pros: "Nice leg room"
Cons: "Doors closed early for my 6:28am flight. I couldn't fly until 1:18pm. Crew says that doors close 10 minutes before flight. The doors on the 1:18pm flight stayed open well after 1:18pm. The flight was then delayed until 1:50pm."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Left a tiny bit late but not a big deal really"
Cons: "we arrived and it took 15 min for a gate agent to bring the jetbridge out to the plane....sad!"
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Nice airline very accommodating. Loved first class"
Pros: "Going down stairs to tarmac in CLT was very difficult for this old lady"
Cons: "Deplaning"
Cons: "Comfort of plane!"
Pros: "Poor airplane not have nothing"
Cons: "I received an electronic boarding pass but still was required to go thru a security check to get a paper boarding pass, and then had to go stand in the original line again. Aircraft was dated. Audio for th in flight was bad. Poor experience overall."
Cons: "I am very disappointed that I was not sitting with my family. We did not pay to upgrade our seats and allowed AA to choose our seats. I am very surprised that they would not take families traveling together into consideration, especially when we booked all at the same time and far in advance. At the very least sit two together. My daughter sat between two straight, and was very uncomfortable. It made her ill. I will not fly long flights with American again."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Everything was okay and scheduled for me, I just walked into the airline and showed my passport"
Cons: "I would like to get a 24 hour before remainder and chance to pick my sits!"
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Cons: "Meh"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Cons: "Missed my connection in London due to a computer malfunction that took over an hour to remedy. In getting to London, I was automatically rebooked, but with a flight that got me in 10 hours later than expected. I asked customer service about alternate flights, with or without connections, that might get me in earlier, but was given a quite curt, "that is not possible," and turned away. Even if that was the case, which seems unlikely given the multiple other flights arriving in Luxembourg from European airports earlier in the day, it was not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Friendly crew (not specting it from AA, confortable seat and excelent entertaiment."
Cons: "Ticket was sold like BA and nwver told is operated by AA and vueling, not friendly staff at check in, They didnt wabt to check my luggage all the way to AMS because of the short conection (why you sell a ticket like ke this if is bot possible) didnt get the second boarding pass."
Cons: "Horrible experience in the ground system, they charged me $240 for my bags and the staff are really confused."
Cons: "I sat at tha airport for over 9 hours before my flight left. Very poor communication and customer service."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Service"
Cons: "I've boycott A.A. for 15 years now. The only reason I flew is because I didn't have a choice with my connection flight. They still suck.!"
Pros: "Thanks Daniel for making my trip to San Diego comfortable!"
Cons: "Didn't get to upgrade to 1st Class, but oh well :)--"
Cons: "No entertainment. There wasn't even a drop down screen for a movie."
Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix. Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."
Pros: "Crew attitude to work in a plane model that should be retired."
Cons: "Insane for AA to still use a 757 for a intercontinental flight."
Pros: "How the pilot was insistent on the idea of taking off and flying, although we were informed of two system error messages, alledgedly the first for an issue with the AC, the other regarding the drain system. After our return to the gate for the second warning, I deplaned. Didn't feel safe after that!"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Staff and customer service were great"
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"
Pros: "First class service was excellent, food was good and entertainment was also good."
Cons: "We were delayed about 5 hours but overall flight was good."
Pros: "Very well-run flight. Crew was on top of everything. Very cheery."
Pros: "Gusty winds in CID - the crew handled this quite well. Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was no UAL ground crew to greet us when we arrived on time (11PM) in Cedar Rapids. Poor communication."
Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Pros: "The flight was very good and no problems were encountered."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Cons: "Delayed for hours, luggage was lost"
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."
Pros: "I like when I come to United after flying few segments with other alliance airlines in the same trip, you have the feeling of home sweet home"
Pros: "Not much, the plane and crew were fine. The RJ's are getting old and dirty though."
Cons: "Delayed, delayed, delayed. The crew is less than sympathetic. No way would I fly United if it wasn't a non-stop flight."
Pros: "We flew for only 45 minutes on a flight that had been scheduled for 1.3 hours."
Cons: "The long delay seemed strange, as the plane had arrived from Costa Rica. Why would an airline schedule the same plane for an international flight and then a short hop from Newark to DC without adequate time in between? The departure gate at Newark was absolute chaos! Announcements were overlapping and not understandable. There was inadequate seating."
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and caring."
Pros: "Being able to charge my phone."
Cons: "Cramped, the only thing they gave us to eat was a cookie (literally ONE cookie. Unless you paid extra - it was a six hour flight, even southwest gives you free crackers and peanuts), the WiFi was ridiculously expensive, they don’t give you a lid for your hot drinks so my tea spilled all over my lap."
Cons: "the boarding process is horrible and feels rude. The design of the united gates is horrible, the long lines block others walking by. The lack of enough overhead space for carryon's is obnoxious. Overall very disappointing."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "The flight was operated by United. It was a long 10 hour flight. The plane was not very convenient - there was no much leg room, the TV was a tiny one - impossible to watch."
Pros: "Seats, newness of the plane, service, food and boarding efficiency."
Cons: "The overhead lights from other seats are too bright and they bother passengers wanting to sleep."
Pros: "They canceled the flight"
Pros: "Got home earlier than planned because I was able to get on an earlier flight."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The price was right! For a one way ticket in the summer I can't complain."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was fine because it wasn't their fault. However, they cram waaaaay too many seats into the planes. A small turboprop has more space!"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked could fly out until the next day"
Cons: "I got late to my next flight !! I loose my flight ."
Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Pros: "The space and entertainment was good"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Gate agent said we would be early, ended up delayed 30 min. Wifi was broken, plane was hot"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline and I was having a broken leg in a cast I had to keep straight"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Pros: "Free TV since we were 2 hours delayed"
Cons: "4 delays in 1 day on 2 flights. 2 gate changes with no relay of info and to top it all off my wife and i were reassigned to separate seats at the last minute by the airline and very rudely told to deal with it and to calm down when I simply asked why. We were appalled and embarrassed in front of many others in the gate boarding area. The gate agent in Houston has no place in customer service and was on some kind of a power trip. This surprised me with recent events. We are done with United now for many reasons"
Pros: "Made it safely from point A to point B."
Cons: "On most airlines, including United, flying is ever more uncomfortable and degrading. Too many people crammed into too little space. My pre-check-in was fruitless because a paper ticket was necessary. The constant upselling of "better" classes of service/comfort and sorting passengers into descending boarding categories is utterly out of control. Make it stop."
Pros: "Arrived early which was great. Thank you"
Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful. The flight was relatively smooth."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Cons: "United delayed the flight over for 2 hours with over 24 hours of flight time. The reason was one of the crew memeber called in sick. When we showed the flight, we were told the flight has to make another stop in San Francisco thus delaying the flight for amther 3 hours. If they know hat they are missing a crew member over 24 hours and cannot find a replacement, this is a serious problem with United. They must be running a very tight ship."
Cons: "Plane was late didn't state as to why, no explanation, luckily didn't miss connecting flight from lax to hnl, that would habe been messed up."
Pros: "Compared to other aircrafts i've recently been on, this aircraft was very comfy"
Pros: "Everything was great we just had to sit for mechanical issues. Announcing ETAs is crucial for those of us getting picked up"
Pros: "I had long waiting time for my flight from ORD and asked at stall if i can get early flight and the person at desk checked the system and get me early flight with no charge in cooperative and helpful manner with smiley gesture ."
Cons: "Boarding group announcrments were hard to understand. Aisle were full of people getting settled and nobody could move. Loading back to front makes more sense."
Pros: "After I boarded, the flight experience was fine for a 16 hour flight. Service was great and helpful, lacked wifi but the inflight entertainment kept me satisfied. All together was pleasant."
Cons: "This flight started out a little bumpy. When I got to the gate I purchased 2 bottles of water (INSIDE SECURITY RIGHT ACROSS FROM THE GATE) only to find out at the end of the jetway, like 100 steps from where I purchased them, I had to give them up. Who would of thought, why would a human want 2 bottles of water before boarding a 16 hour flight, weird right, so that was really frustrating and just a plain waist of money. Thanks UNITED..."
Pros: "very nice flight attendant. Very helpful to have my son and I sit together. Gave me a cup of coffee when i asked. very friendly as well."
Pros: "My flight wasn't full so I had no one sitting next to me."
Cons: "Snack wasn't very good"
Pros: "The flight made the best out of what they had to work with. They got me to my destination."
Cons: "I paid $200 extra to get upgrade my seat but it was far from an upgrade. I my seat was next to the bathroom. People were constantly coming and out as well as stepping on my feet while they stood and stretched so I never had any actually "extra leg room". I didn't get any sleep from the bathroom lights contasntly shining in my face. The entertainment was horrible there were no tv screens expect for the small ones going down the aisle. Felt like I was on a flight from when I was 10. When we made it to our destination baggage claim was a mess and our carsoul kept changing. None of the passengers or employees knew what was going on. It was a mess."
Pros: "Eh, it wasn't the best nor the worst, just mediocre."
Cons: "I'm not a fan of United Airlines!"
Pros: "Great flight."
Cons: "My husband and I were given seats in different rows. When you book two seats together they should be next to each other"
Pros: "They were on time."
Cons: "The cabin temperature never went below 80 degrees. Seats were very, very small. Especially when seated by a 300 lb person"
Pros: "United Flight cancelled because no available working aircraft. Did not tell us until very late at night. The lines and wait to speak to customer service was extraordinary. Could not get us out until the next day on another airline. They did give us hotel voucher but did not arrive at hotel until after midnight cue to late notice of flight cancellation and long lines at the airport. Sent bag on another flight even though we could not fly out as scheduled. Therefore we were stuck overnight without our luggage, change of clothes, cell phone charger etc... Seems United has these issues more than any other airline. Will avoid flying united in the future"
Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome; entertainment was very good (lots of movies and played computer chess); ample drink service."
Cons: "Food in main meal was disappointing. Was like cafeteria food. (However, toward end of flight we had a sandwich which was actually pretty good.)"
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "The crew was very non polite!. The flight was delayed. Asked for help from crew and she answered me with bad altitude. Never go with them again!!!!."
