Absolutely a nightmare which after paying for 3 nights hotel with no discount, I was further inconvenienced by the inability to receive my 2nd luggage and after requesting it be delivered, I, I, tracked my bag and you chose to send it 3 days ahead to my destination and I HAVE NOT RECEIVED any acknowledgment of my online inquiry which is why I am complaining. I've had to purchase a new set of luggage AND will have to pay for them on my next 2 legs on Delta. I apologise for seeming so harsh as I know you've had so much trouble because of the tornadoes, but this leg of my trip cost me an additional $800.00 plus AUD and I was here in the US to care for my father who recently had a 2nd heart attack and my final days in USA were meant to be a holiday, and all I can say is the stress because these expenses have removed any enjoyment (I know I'm looking at this half empty, not half full). I'm glad to share this and hope you're company loses will be recouped after this mess! Daniel Grayson Craigieburn, VIC Australia"

Cons: "Awoke to find ill man laying on floor in aisle next to me with oxygen. Shortly after... Passenger in seat near man on floor (diabetic but no one tells us anything) needs to lay across four seats with oxygen for heart issues for remainder of trip with staff and doctor on board nearby. Nevdr informed what was happening, never offered to move our seats or move iIl passengers. Glad all turned out ok. Could have given them more privacy and better informed other passengers."

Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"

Pros: "SFO - CDG (Air France) was a great journey in all respects. But the one major reason for that was, the middle seat was empty. I was so fresh after the journey, would definitely recommend this flight to anyone."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by atleast 45 mins and therefore had to rush at the CDG airport to catch the next flight."

Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."

Cons: "Freezing"

Pros: "There was enough leg room"
Cons: "The food was not very nice and the aircraft was really cold."

Pros: "Traveled fron SFO to CDG on AF in business class on an A 380. Lounge in SFO was smallish and not many choices in the food bar. Boarding was smooth. my second ride on A 380 in business and this trip reminded me quickly why I did not care for the A 380 on my previous trip. It is a huge plane with a huge sized business class which makes the cost less worth it compared to a Boeing. The crew were extremely helpful and caring. The food was acceptable. The seats on the plane were not comfortable in the lying position. Took a cab to our hotel in Paris (1st Arr) for a flat 50 euros. No meters."
Cons: "Arriving in CDG and facing a slow immigration with the passengers of this huge plane. I didn't care for the baggage delivery system. We were waiting for an hour only to realize that the arrival port for our luggage was changed."

Pros: "It was clean The crew was very kind Food was very good Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats were exceedingly close Screens for entertainment were small and game controls were difficult to use"

Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"

Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "Food was ok - don't know why my vegi meal didn't have cheese and dairy in it, would have made if better. Boarding was ridiculous long line. Could have been more efficient"

Pros: "I was too tired to stay awake so I slept most of the flight. The ground crew at the checking booth was kind enough to provide me with an aisle seat to accommodate my long legs, from which I suffer if I would sit in a middle seat."
Cons: "Nothing that I can remember, again I was too tired to stay awake."

Pros: "Food was surprisingly plentiful and good. Crew was friendly and helpful. Movie selections were adequate."
Cons: "The leg room between seats was non-existant. I'm only average height and it was terribly cramped. For a taller person it would be torture."

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "I was lucky enough not to be put into a middle seat or next to a stranger during this pandemic."
Cons: "No social distancing and no enforcement of wearing a mask properly. Wearing one on your chin or half of your mouth with your nose hanging out needs to be corrected. Empty seats should be utilized for social distancing regardless of fare. First class and the back half of the planes were practically empty while everyone was in the center. We should have been allowed to spread out."

Pros: "Good seats, comfortable w headrest adjustable"

Pros: "Speedy boarding. Helpful crew."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "The first class seats on these newer 737-800s are VERY disappointing. Width is ok, but legroom is on par with economy expectations. With my tray out and the person in front of me reclined, I could barely see my laptop. There is also very little space under the seats, especially for the aisle seat."

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!"

Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "Different snack options."

Pros: "Trip went smoothly"
Cons: "Nothing"

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."

Pros: "Landing and take off."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great!"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "The gate crew and flight crew took extra care of my wife, who has MS and related difficulty walking. They showed great care - very friendly and professional. Pleasant experience all the way through."
Cons: "Seats were a little close together, so my knees were always touching the seat in front of me. Not terrible, but not ideal. I'm 6'1" and my legs are a bit long."

Pros: "They seem to have more time for the passengers then other airlines do"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Delayed for some unknown reason"

Cons: "Old, small seats, no tv, no WiFi"

Pros: "We were rerouted through Philadelphia."

Pros: "The crew was very good. The made sure we were informed and helped get people rebooked."
Cons: "We were delayed by about 2 and 1/2 hours. Which I get no one can control a maintenance issue, just made for a hectic day"

Cons: "Flight delays and cancellations."

Pros: "Good communication from the captain"
Cons: "The delays"

Pros: "Flight was only 25% full. Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats are cramped. No noise canceling headphones."

Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "Good and entertainment"
Cons: "I have short legs so the long flight was uncomfortable. A stop of some sort would helpnif offered"

Pros: "Late..."

Pros: "Called 1-800 hotline and got a new flight"
Cons: "Was at gate onntime for flight. At boarding time passengers were informed if there was an issue with the plane and maintenance is on their way to check out the problem. 30 minutes later we were still till that maintenance is on their way. One hour later there is still no information as far as when the fight will leave but they kept updating the boarding time. There was only one person of the counter who could help re-assign passengers to different flights due to their layovers. After waiting in line for 40 minutes and the line making no movement I called the airline 1-800 hundred number and explain my situation to the American Airlines Airlines representative. they really give me a new flight that left 20 minutes later after my call if I did not call I would not mean it that flight nor any other fights that morning because they're all in the afternoon."

Cons: "Only served half people beverages. No entertainment"

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."

Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."

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."

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: "The crew was friendly and competent."
Cons: "Airlines have an industry wide problem. They INTENTIONALLY make every part of flying miserable so that passengers will pay anything to make it less painful. For example... if you want to make boarding quicker, build the cost of checked luggage into ticket prices so that you don't have people carrying everything on and clogging up the process. Or use the existing and publicly available research to improve boarding mechanisms... but that would mean you lose an opportunity to squeeze extra cash out of people for 'priority boarding'. This phenomenon is real, and currently be investigated by congress. Call your senator."

Pros: "In flight entertainment options. new, clean aircraft."
Cons: "Seat comfort. All the money spent on aircraft amenities, technology, storage, etc. Why not more comfortable seats?"

Cons: "Delayed flight, moderately friendly crew, moderately comfortable flight, expensive."

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: "Assigned seating, snacks, touch screen media feature."
Cons: "Staff could have been more friendly."

Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."

Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."

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."

Pros: "The staff tried to help as much as possible."
Cons: "I called American Airlines as ssoon as I book my trip to set up and make sure my small dog could fly with me. They neglected to inform me their partner, jetstar, does not fly animals. My luggage did not arrive with me. Both of my suitcases were mangled and broken. Items in my suitcases were shattered and crushed even though they were well packed and protected. We got stuck on the terminal in MSP and missed our connecting flight. When we finally arrived the systems were down and could not get new flights or hotels. We were told we could not get hotels and had to argue for an hour. Even though it was a maintenance issue. I arrived a day late and had to take extra leave. The plane from LAX to Tokyo was horrific. I booked a window seat, was stuck in the very middle. There was no way to charge outlets devices. The screen did not work. And my new luggage was also damaged with even more items destroyed."

Pros: "I was lucky to get an upgrade to business class. It was fantastic, of course, as business class should be. Great crew, great space."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies. Or maybe I'm just old and grumpy and not interested in dozens of superhero movies!"

Cons: "They didn't give my parents who are in their 80s seats together, that's not right."

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: "Tv in front of every seat, how far the seats reclined."

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: "Wireless entertainment and seat spacing on the airbus"
Cons: "Boeing seats are too close together. Space them out"

Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "As always, seats are very tight and not super comfortable... but that’s true for all airlines these days, unfortunately."

Cons: "The usual-- lack of legroom, insufficient recline"

Pros: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"
Cons: "I cant say nothing but can say everything was good"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Though take off was delayed."
Cons: "Not much."

Pros: "The flight was unremarkable"
Cons: "The loading was 1hr late because United had to move the plane to the proper gate. No leg space, but that's my 6'-4" body's fault."

Cons: "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."

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: "Not much. The plane left ontimefrom SF,got toMplsontime."
Cons: "Bought a basic economy ticket: 3 emails warning about luggage restrictions - demeaning! Can't download boarding passes from own computer- must be done at airport under supervision of United staff: "have to check and see what bags you're bringing"!. Last to board! Seat assignments done at the gate; instructed to see gate attendant, who says, "Take a seat, we'll call you". Finally, in SF, gate person says,"You bought a restricted ticket, we have to watch you"! I didn't buy lousy customer service!"

Pros: "On time, friendly, overall great!"

Pros: "The friendliness of the crews."
Cons: "The landing was a little bumpy."

Pros: "The price of a ticket is slightly lower. It is not enough of a difference to make the plethora of inconveniences worth it. You are not a valued customer with this fare. If United values customers, they shouldn't offer this fare. That's why I don't fly the bargain airlines."
Cons: "You can't check in at the kiosk on basic economy without an employee badge swipe, and there were no employees available. I had to stop checking in, wait in line, and then the employee that I talked to didn't have the right kind of badge to swipe. So I waited again. Extremely inconvenient. Even after being forced to talk to a ticket agent at check in, they still won't issue a seat. So you have to go to the gate and wait in line again to get a seat. The system is built for maximum inefficiency. It doesn't cost less for them to make me talk to two separate people, it is only to inconvenience the flyer for buying a cheaper ticket. It seems like a punitive system. Boarding was organized and painless. The crew seemed polite. Regarding comfort, the "leg room" on the airbus is ridiculous. I am average height and felt claustrophobic. I can't imagine how a tall person feels. There was no " entertainment" on my flight, so one star for that. I didn't not receive any food and was not offered water, 1 star."

Pros: "I liked the savory snack mix."

Pros: "Private screening and movies available."
Cons: "No drink was offered due to descent sooner than planned. Very rough turbulance during descent."

Pros: "service is good."

Pros: "Very nice large roomy airplane"

Pros: "On time, no delays."

Cons: "Delays on delays"

Pros: "Being on time"

Pros: "Room for my luggage"

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "I have taken this fight many times. This was the first time there was not a drink Service available. Approximately 10 people had to get off the plane so five people to check their bag"

Pros: "Good service and on time"
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment before arriving to the airport."

Cons: "Would like atleast 1 or 2 options free on the tv"

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."

Cons: "Cost too much."

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: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."

Pros: "The lady helping me before boarding plan was awesome thanks enjoy your week"

Cons: "I'm 6'tall...NOT that tall and felt cramped the entire time."

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"

Pros: "Speed and ease of our return home."
Cons: "We got in SO early, there was no gate ready for us at Newark, so we had to stay on board at least 30 min. Also they didnt allow even 1 person waiting in queue for bathroom, so if you sat down you'd lose your place."

Cons: "No movies to watch"

Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "first class seats not comfy. No wi-fi on the entire outbound. I had paid $149 to upgrade to first class. With no movies, no wi-fi, and being a vegetarian with 2 chicken entrees (chicken sandwich or chicken salad!) and no extra room, I decided to drink. I had 3 "free drinks" in first class, which was like paying $50 for a vodka tonic without a lime (3 times). Save you $$$"

Pros: "First leg had free streaming on your own device, which was awesome!"

Pros: "Love junction airport"
Cons: "DIA is always nice and kayak was a great service and price."

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: "Seat too tight couldn't move at all"
Cons: "Seat too tight couldn't move at all"

Pros: "We got here"
