Pros: "Everything! Staff and service. I like the Free WiFi also."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Good seats, comfortable w headrest adjustable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "Speedy boarding. Helpful crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment"
Pros: "nothing. Plane never left."
Cons: "Airlines that actually fly. We ended up renting a car and driving the 3.5 hours from Charlotte to Savannah and actually beat the flight that finally left after 11 pm and landed 1 am. We should have gotten the car much sooner and driven instead of sitting at the airport for 8 hours."
Cons: "The flight attendant that helped passengers in the main cabin was rude, lacked empathy, and lacked resourcefulness. She argued about throwing away a drink that she poured, didn’t care to explain things to passengers when asked i. e. why charging outlets were not in service, and her tone was rude ..."
Pros: "The attendant for my area was amazing. I was in the back of the plane and he was friendly. He helped me look for my power cord. He is an outstanding member of your team!"
Cons: "Nope, this was a great flight!"
Cons: "I've flown American airlines twice this year. The service and flights have been very good. One thing I'd like to see is a variety of snack options."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "Different snack options."
Pros: "Crew was great. Made sure I made my connection. Even tried to get me a better placement so I could quickly exit and head to my next flight."
Cons: "It wa super cold on my second flight. Small plane, rather loud."
Cons: "Potentially of hiccups and things outside of AA control. Better, more comfortable seats would be nice."
Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"
Cons: "The security check line was about a mile long at the Terminal 1, but that's not the airline's fault."
Pros: "Everyone was super friendly. The plane was clean and comfortable and the food was great for airplane food."
Pros: "They seem to have more time for the passengers then other airlines do"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4+ hours due to weather. Gate agents did not communicate well, were rude and not helpful."
Pros: "Let's see - I was in first class. The flight itself was fine - and only one hour + late!"
Cons: "Food - Served the "breakfast" (when it was called a protein plate) I had coming (into MSP). for "lunch" on the way back (called it a meat plate for lunch. One slice turkey, one slice jamon, one egg, cinnamon roll and fruit. Just because they don't want to serve bread - they call it a protein plate? I'm not on a protein diet. Food was pretty sick for the amount I paid for the fight. Stewardess said it was against Republic's rules to give a customer a can of tonic water (so I could add to the small amount of vodka) - she also told me that it was against Delta's, American's and United's rules to give a can - strange? First Class seat did not recline. First Class was freezing per every flight on this segment (the stewardesses sit in the back and don't want to be uncomfortable - if they make the front warm - the back is too hot for them (not joking on this one). So many things to list - that I will finish on the AA site."
Cons: "Old, small seats, no tv, no WiFi"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Waiting for maintenance, leaving late, running through the airport. No help from airport staff. They really seemed like that they didn’t care a bit if people made there flights. We barely made our connection to London. People who are 59 should NOT have to run through a huge airport! We spent a lot of money and planned this trip for nearly a year. There were no updates from Kayak. I will use Expedia from now on."
Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."
Pros: "Good communication from the captain"
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Late..."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Bathrooms didn't work delaying initial departure an hour. Ran to connecting flight and made it prior to door being closed. 12 passengers in total were told that we would be boarded and then were abrubly told none would be boarding our final leg to the Caymans even though our seats were available. Horrible company culture not focused on customers."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient, the pilot kept the passengers informed about the delays and updated gate info, etc. well. The seats and interior were cleaner and in better shape than I remember from the last time I flew American."
Cons: "The flight was delayed waiting for crew. The pilots arrived, then a couple of stewards and finally the last steward. Then had to de-ice and wait in line for takeoff. Made my connecting flight with 6 minutes to spare. Never received beverage service. Took 20 minutes to do the first 6 rows and then was discontinued because of turbulence."
Cons: "was seated between 2 to very overweight persons, the person in the aile side, extrememly heavy needed extension belt, plus removing the arm rest next to me and using great part of my seat. not a very comfortable situation and the plane was FULL, no empty seats"
Pros: "Wider seats."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "I left an expensive Bose head set in my seat that could not be found....or did smobody decide it was better in their possession.?"
Pros: "All hope was lost until Greg came to our rescue. We made our connecting flight on time and didn’t have to reschedule the entire trip until the next day- losing out on lodging and plans abroad."
Cons: "The way this flight was cancelled due to weather and couldn’t be rescheduled by anyone at the airport, on the phone — knowing it was due to the size of the plane and the weather conditions. I wasn’t even offered a voucher or accommodation for what I was being told would be a 24-hour delay. That was until we met Greg, he literally saved our trip and our experience with American Airlines."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."
Cons: "delayed 2 hrs in perfect weather"
Pros: "straight through flight no connection. Crew was friendly and smiled."
Cons: "I do not like that you have to pay to choose a decent seat. Our flight was slightly delayed in boarding, and was not communicated."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and flights were on time."
Cons: "Crew could have been a little more friendly and the planes were a bit dated...although I know AA is in the process of replacing their fleet."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Pros: "The flight staff did the best they could for how few of them there were."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, and the gate was understaffed, so it took forever to even get up to the counter to try arranging alternate flights. Also, the Kayak/Webjet tickets we were issued interfered with the process as the airline could not reissue us tickets directly. Moreover, one Kayak & Webjet got actively involved, they even tried to deny us passage on the alternate flights that American Airlines suggested. By the time we did make it up to the desk, everything was taken/full for the next few days & we have been struggling to make our overseas travel even possible ever since."
Pros: "It was nice that I had a seat empty next to me, allowing for extra room. Flight was a little early in landing in Dallas, allowing for extra time for a short layover to find my terminal and gate for my next flight."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Quick board and exit, fast check-in"
Cons: "Wi-Fi onboard free for all T Mobile customers, cramped seat room for a smaller adult even"
Pros: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."
Pros: "I liked the fact I eventually ended up in Dallas - that's about the only thing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Inconsistent service - some customers got cans, some got just a cup with a lot of ice and drink. FAs were uninterested when the drink I wanted was not available. Flight was delayed by a maintenance issue. Overall, a terrible experience."
Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."
Cons: "Baggage charge. I always try and fly with southwest if possible no baggage fee and they have an overall better vibe for the flyers"
Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Pros: "Nothing. Was a lot of waited, the people were mad rough."
Cons: "We had a cup of water and a cookie for a 3 hours flight. The captain put gas at the airport with us in the plane. we waited in the plane almost 3 hour because of a storm."
Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew was nice and courteous"
Cons: "Seats seem quite narrow standard fare of biscuits to go with drink"
Pros: "Crew was nice, drinks"
Cons: "Ended up landing in Oklahoma, no hotel available even with the voucher, no food in airport,"
Pros: "On time."
Pros: "You had genuine people working."
Cons: "Flight was delay for a long time."
Pros: "I was in a regular seat, but had more leg room than other airlines I've flown recently. I always put my bacpack and purse under the seat in front of me. On JetBlue and Frontier, I have to pull out the back pack during the flight to stretch my legs out, but not on either of these flights. This survey rates entertainment, but there was none. For me that's a great thing (I bring my own), so None gets the 5-star rating for my purposes. Uneventful flights--on time even with a short delay taking off out of MSP."
Pros: "My first flight fom MSP to chicago was 25mins early and from Chicago to MCI 5mins early which is good."
Pros: "Biarding"
Cons: "Internet WiFi"
Pros: "Seem to be a smooth and direct flight"
Cons: "The flight was fine however my seat was next to the bathroom and people would occasionaly Bump in to me ."
Pros: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Cons: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Pros: "Great to always feel comfortable while traveling."
Cons: "The legroom is non-existent. I sure wish airlines didn't try to put so many seats in each aircraft."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed out of Mpls 2 hours so we had to rebook everything since we would miss our connection in Denver to Honolulu. The process of rebooking was terrible -- took almost 2 hours standing in line and the booking agent wasn't knowledgable Had to make an additional stop in LAX and arrived in Honolulu 5 hours later than we were supposed to. VERY disappointing experience all around!"
Pros: "Flight was quick and the flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "I'm 6' tall and my head was above the headrest, so it wasn't super comfortable to lay back."
Pros: "Service and respect very good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The trip went smoothly and it was on time. The Crew was nice and efficient"
Pros: "The friendliness of the crews."
Cons: "The landing was a little bumpy."
Pros: "Always raved about my experience. This time was not impressed. The people who initially took our bags were great, there after... not good."
Cons: "Arrived at 0750, ahead of schedule and waited until 0915 to get off the plane due to an error with the gate and then a malfunction of equipment. Now waiting for our baggage for 40 min. still nothing. Disappointing start to an already short vacay."
Cons: "It was not made clear at all that I was buying a basic economy ticket and was not going to be allowed to take a carry on. That was really frustrating."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Snack"
Pros: "On time Friendly staffs"
Cons: "There was no provided entertainment"
Pros: "service is good."
Pros: "So grateful the flight waited for us because our flight was delayed because of mechanical problems. The take off and landing were great and flight attendants Were great also. Snacks were marginal but served with a smile!"
Cons: "Snacks and that our previous flight was delayed and the stress of not knowing if we would make our flight"
Pros: "Very nice large roomy airplane"
Pros: "On time, no delays."
Pros: "Being on time"
Pros: "Room for my luggage"
Cons: "The crew & boarding. Awful snacks."
Cons: "I'm disappointed that I had to pay to watch the flight tracker, that it wasn't a free option and I had to be continually subjected to commercials that were irrelevant to me."
Cons: "milk products in the snack bag, gross."
Cons: "Landing at dulles - we had to deplane from the outside. Would be nice to have it connected so we walk from plane to covered ramp inside to airport. Didn't serve a snack and they usually do."
Pros: "I liked Wh snack mix"
Cons: "I didn't like that there was a power outlet advertised and there was in fact not one."
Pros: "The flights were wonderful. Boarding process went smoothly."
Pros: "One of the best flights I have ever been on! Everything was right on time."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "I appreciate that United hasn't gotten greedy with baggage charges and has kept their seating comfortable. Last Frontier flight was RIDICULOUS!!"
Pros: "The staff was friendly"
Cons: "Can't rate a flight that was cancelled 2 1/2 hours before it was to take off. They cancelled my flight, re-routed me to three flights going through la. I talked with a gate agent who got me an earlier flight to L.A bit the layover was huge. Was supposed to be in sac at 11am got here at 5"
Pros: "Perfect"
Cons: "Late, waited for a plane while numerous flights to Ontario and Sacramento came and went. Unacceptable."
Pros: "I really like almost everything about flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "Checking in and obtaining my boarding pass was a less than satisfying experience. Initially I could not check in until arrived at the airport because the first leg of my trip was Lufthansa through United? I tried to check in on BOTH United and lufthansa's website neither worked. I then spent about 45 minutes on the phone with a Lufthansa representitave just to find out I would be unable to check in until I arrived at the airport the next day. Once I checked in to the airport I could only get my seat for the first flight and was told I would have to get my subsequent seats while on layover. When I arrived at my layover, while trying to get my seat for the next flight I was told they were overbooked and I would have to wait 'over there' until they could figure out a place for me to sit. But when the attendant printed my ticket she was shocked to find out I had a seat, and angrily reported that 'I don't know how YOU got a seat, but you did. So go get in line for the flight!' That said, I did get in line, I did get fairly decent seats the whole trip, and all but one employee were overly helpful and nice. However it would have been far less stressful if I was just able to check in for the initial flight."
Cons: "No movies to watch"
Cons: "Every flight I had was delayed at least an hour, and one of my flights was delayed 2.5 hours, which caused me to miss an important meeting. When I asked why it was taking so long, the United customer service representative was very short and somewhat rude. Not a great experience this time that's for sure."
Cons: "seats were extremely uncomfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times causing me to have to literally run across airport to catch international connecting flight. Gate crew did very little to assist me in securing an alternate flight. On board crew did little to assist me in finding out information and getting me off the plane quickly to get to my connecting flight. Overall they showed little empathy and customer service."
Pros: "When I got on the plane"
Cons: "Late by more then an hour and I missed my connection home. I had to stay the night in Denver and miss a day of work. This cost me an extra day and about $1000 worth of missed revenue."
Pros: "It was a good flight."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Overall good flight. Very quick! :) nice pilot"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "One strange thing happened on my United airlines flight. The crew announced before we boarded that there wasn't enough overhead space for rolling bags and encouraged us to check them in. Upon boarding they announced that all overhead space in the back was full. I sat in the back and noticed that the crew closed the overhead compartments even though they were mostly empty. Another passenger opened an empty one and the crew came over and closed it right away, though many people were still boarding. What's going on?"
Pros: "We got here"
Cons: "Lost luggage"
Cons: "Very slow boarding. The entire last boarding group had to gate check our bags, despite there being lots of room in the overhead bins when we got on. Then we had to go to baggage claim to retrieve them, rather than having them unloaded quickly and returned to us when we de-boarded. My carry-on is no longer clean; it not has big black spots on it, and came though the baggage claim partially wet from the rain. I was not happy."
Cons: "Flight was over 2 hrs delayed so I couldn't even take the flight. Waste of my money. Paid 330 dollars and got nothing. Now United nor you guys are helping. Never again will I use this site"
Pros: "Comfortable seats ,they seem to have a new ergonomic design that make them more comfy . More leg room even in regular economy seating."
Cons: "Staff wasn't very talkative just kinda did the basic beverage service and that's it . Not rude but not overly friendly either . The crews that work for Southwest make you laugh and they're so much more interactive with passengers ."
Pros: "Great flight crew. MSP airport was outstanding"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Cons: "Delayed three times"
Cons: "I'm not a cofee guy , meat and potatoes right. The carmel wafer cookie thing, not bad. I like peanuts one bag plain, one bag honey roasted perfect. Then the second carmel wafer came, I guess what choice do I have. The accountants have won, flat tasteless wafers fly best due to form factor plus most will not take another once they've had the first. Maybe several selections of the flavored wafer cookie? Imagine beer with a salsa wafer, wine with cheese garlic wafer, coffee and cheesecake wafer. In app selection or purchase by seat number. You customize your entertainment and refreshments. Yeah you had to pack light and get a millipeeper scan, but now for some reward. The new plane is nice, smooth surface seating, clean carpet. Not grossed out at all. Could not review the toilet, have never been. The wafer thingy is not refined enough yet. easy fix."
