Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"
Cons: "If you fly first class your seat should recline. Ridiculous and the reason I go out of my way to make sure I NEVER fly American. Couldn’t avoid it this time and as always American managed to disappoint."
Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"
Cons: "Employees I understand that sometimes they see a lot of people and it can get overwhelming with the job but giving good attitude it’s a most."
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and flight was clean"
Cons: "AC was broke took long time to get ac on we all sweat to death on the plan as it was broke and portable starter didn't work so they had to get a 2nd one. Then stewart on plan says American just doesn't have good maintenance on there equipment that is a red flag for sure."
Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"
Pros: "The flight was on time and things went smoothly for the most part!"
Cons: "The male flight attendant was rude and short when answering questions and providing service!"
Pros: "Crew did a good job handling the full flight."
Cons: "I had selected seats thru justly.com. Paid extra. I was not given the seats I had selected. American Airlines refused to acknowledge the confirmation for seat assignments that I had received thru email from justfly.com and Finnair."
Pros: "Made it to my destination"
Cons: "2-hour delay in the plan after departure from the gate for maintenance. The seats are so small that my knees hit the seat in front of me the entire flight."
Cons: "I love it"
Pros: "Great crew - good attitudes."
Cons: "Delayed for an hour due to a log book issue."
Cons: "I'm 6ft2in not enough leg room"
Cons: "Even on a big ole B777 you better upgrade to bigger seats"
Cons: "Delayed takeoff by 1 hour waiting for a crew to fly in. Upon crew arrival, new crew member states that there are standby crew available and he's not sure why they didn't call on them. Then we continued to wait for 3 more passengers who were delayed and now had a chance to board our flight. Once landed, gate was occupied by yet another flight running late so we waited for 15 minutes to get to the gate."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Standard flight and good landing. On time."
Cons: "Need more space in coach."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine and the inflight entertainment provided good entertainment."
Cons: "From the begining the trip was plagued by delays. I was supposed to leave Monterey at 0600, we didnt leave until 0630. Then my Phoenix flight was delayed by two hours that caused me to shift flights in Charlotte because i would miss my connection. Lastly, they had to change a break on the plane leaving Charlotte so instead of getting home at 7 like i was supposed to, i got into Norfolk at 1139 pm."
Pros: "Was supposed to leave at 8:00 am. Waited for 4 hours, got my flight rebooked after having to search for an AA representative. I had to get my luggage due to the change of airlines, after waiting for an hour at the luggage reclaim center i was told that my bag had already shipped by itself with other flight"
Cons: "Everything. Poor service. 5 hours of waiting. Disaster"
Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."
Pros: "The Monterrey airport is very comfortable and fast. The trip was pleasant. The staff very attentive."
Cons: "On this trip I wanted to see snow and I did not see it."
Cons: "Late leaving Monterey. Other than that, fine trip"
Pros: "I always trave AA/British Airways and I have never experienced any major problem or delay. They are a really good and trustworthy airline!"
Pros: "Seat was good and staff were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "In-flight music selection could have been better."
Pros: "Food service was good."
Pros: "Pleasant crew and flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was a half hour late and had to run to catch our connecting flight"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Really unconfortable seats."
Cons: "Beyond pritzzels pls have other snack varieties"
Pros: "I loved the delay."
Cons: "Sits are very tight."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Pros: "Broken down into more groups - ok I guess..."
Cons: "No way to know who was up next, who was in line for what number - should have corraling stations (some airlines have this) where you gather based on your number and can move out of the way for others. Getting onto the plan was awful - the aisle are SO TINY - I'm 5'6" tall and 140 lbs, trying to roll a small back through the aisle, and it was impossible not to hit 14 people. It's like you have to go to class on how to walk through the aisle and not be an idiot."
Pros: "Ability to avoid storms in order to provide a less stressful and safer flight. Actually arrived early!"
Cons: "Did not like having to board from the tarmac."
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Cons: "No tv screens or entertainment"
Pros: "The American Air crew was great very attentive and they pass out free drinks"
Cons: "The 787 is tight and when the fight is 7 plus hours it tends to ware on you"
Pros: "Handicap boarded with sufficient extra time"
Cons: "Not enough room."
Cons: "Flight cancelled to begin the trip. They did however help us get a flight on Alaska to get us to los cobos"
Cons: "Return flight was delayed, gate changes unfriendly and unhelpful flight attendants"
Cons: "No tv.. Rude customer service n my luggage got lost.. I will make to stay away from aa"
Pros: "The flight was on time and comfortable"
Cons: "That I paid for luggage when most people waited until they were told while boarding so they checked the baggage for free even though it was obviously too large. Maybe it should be checked closer when checking in before going through security."
Pros: "New plane, fair legroom, comfortable temperature, a couple nice FAs, couple mediocore ones."
Cons: "IFE completely broken, mediocre apology. Sat on ramp 15 min after push. Zero explanation or status update. Typical small pretzel or cookie and soft drink."
Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."
Cons: "Had to cancel my flight and call the company. Was talking to a computer for 30 min before I finally talked to someone. It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."
Pros: "Got an economy extra seat without upgrading, had a variety of snacks and service extras which were nice"
Cons: "Was never asked for dietary restrictions so no vegetarian meals were available, pretty old aircraft to be flying that route, no seat back entertainment"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, LOVED the enterainment system!"
Cons: "No complaints here."
Pros: "Respesv your promise for the bording time"
Cons: "When the crew bothering me"
Cons: "Engine was super loud on takeoff - to the point where passengers were looking around worried that something wasn't right. Eventually it seemed to be switched off once we hit the clouds and we seemed to sort of coast quietly for a minute or so - also alarming to everyone judging by the non-verbal behavior that suddenly everyone was exhibiting. Then it came back on again but only at half the volume. Nothing was mentioned about it by the captain or crew so I spent the rest of the flight wondering if the engine was going to give out part way through the flight."
Pros: "lousy crew"
Pros: "Safety of the flight, the route"
Cons: "The remote for the AV was so torn. I coukdnt even use it"
Pros: "Great gate staff at each leg. Fantastic crew DEN to IAH"
Cons: "Nothing really. The layovers allowed me time to work on schoolwork and to enjoy lounges."
Pros: "Spa first class but seats are pretty comfortable. Wi-Fi works well ."
Cons: "Parked at gate getting in without gate availability. I hate those delays ."
Pros: "Delayed notifications"
Cons: "Hours of delays and no courtesy by airline."
Pros: "Never made it to Denver"
Cons: "Up graded seat but didn't get to board till last."
Pros: "The avod system of movies was good and the channel 9 ATC was amazing to listen to."
Cons: "Multiple delays because of United crazy crew scheduling and a lazy flight crew. Flight attendants didn’t even give us the meals on a 12 hour flight. Worst flight ever."
Cons: "Lost my bags..."
Cons: "the person helping me couldn't understand her and she was aggressive and charged me too much and wouldn't make adjustments about it."
Pros: "Crew members were pleasant"
Cons: "Gate was changed to a gate much farther away. Flight was delayed for 4 different reasons all of which were unlikely. We left 4 hours late. On board the plane was freezing cold. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again."
Cons: "As stated above, we never made it to Liberia (where we had family waiting for us). We had to fly first to Panama and then to San Jose and figure out a new rental car situation, as we already had one booked in Liberia."
Cons: "After being so delayed on our first flight from San Francisco, I was nervous about getting to our connecting flight in Houston. We were assured by the flight attendant that when a flight is delayed and has connections, they communicate that to the gates and we would be fine. It was the OPPOSITE of fine. We landed with 10 minutes until the flight to Costa Rica left and they let all of us who were connecting deplane first, only to run full speed to a gate who’s plane left 10 minutes EARLY and decided that it was not going to wait for the 12+ passenagers who had no control of the delayed flight. My fiancé and I were flying to our WEDDING. So now I’m sitting here in Houston for a full 24 hours waiting for the next flight to take me to my wedding. The only “accommodation” united airlines gave us was a hotel. No compensation for the night we paid for at our resort in Costa Rica that we are missing, no upgrades to a better class on our new flight and no reassurance on how terrible they feel for this giant and heartbreaking inconvenience. I am furious."
Pros: "This was one of the worst domestic flights I’ve ever taken. United Airlines had a maintenance problem I’m delayed this plane by one hour every hour for six hours keeping us captive at the airport !! Horrible service horrible Airline I will try to avoid this at all costS."
Pros: "It was great... all staff where very courteous and helpful. A very comfortable ride. A 10 in my books!!! Love you guys!! Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"

Pros: "Flights were all on time. Crew was lovely."
Cons: "The usual: hard to get in and out to go to bathroom. I would have liked to sit in emergency row as I noticed few people were in those seats but I didn't know how to have secured those seats so I just sat where I was assigned."
Pros: "Loved the fast boarding and quick flight! The crew did their best to inform us about our various delays."
Cons: "Cmon dudes, just plan ahead. Don't leave us to taxi on the tarmac for an hour before take off, only to do the same once we land! This shouldn't take quite so long."
Cons: "The crew, on the flight, were very short and rude. Acted like it was a inconvenience to them to even be there. I was very disappointed. I am a ex airline employee, and it hurts my heart when I see staff treat people with disinterest. So, over all I was very disappointed."

Cons: "This flight was my third delayed United flight in under 3 days. I will not be flying with United again. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing for this flight. Delayed, rude crew, seat assignment mess up, etc."
Cons: "No food in a previous 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight. Very uncomfortable plane! Asking to pay for entertainment Direct TV, are you kidding me??? Those tickets are not cheap and you can't provide entertainment? Charging for everything extra is outrageous. Crew was a bit rude. And the people at the counter at the gate -very rude and unhelpful. Flight delayed on Christmas night and no refund for all that time wasted without being with the family. I had seats together with my husband and then seats were removed, asked to see an agent when printed boarding pass and then got separate seats. You are a joke and do not respect the money we pay and prearranged seat assignments. United you are a terrible airline, please strive for better customer service. You charge a lot."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice, the plane had wifi"

The new ticket I was issued would not scan.. Same thing happened on the way back... Got new seats and horrible ones at that.. Why book your seats if you are gonna get moved anyways?!?!? Never fly United."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 4 hours."
Cons: "I paid for the internet access and it says all flight, but that's not true, it doesn't cover the whole flight."
Pros: "The price for the flights was great."
Cons: "The airplane was cramped, legroom nonexistent (and I'm small and skinny). The plane was delayed and hot. The ride was bumpy. The crew was slow. I thought United was a premier carrier. I've had better experiences with Frontier and Spirit recently."
