At least a snack or a drink
Everything was fine, thank you.
Cons: "Maintenance problems resulted in original aircraft being unavailable and switching to new aircraft at a different gate. More than 45 min late."
Cons: "Maintenance issues which led to a flight delay- understandable But we have been on the plane waiting to taxi. The person talking said it will take “3-4 minutes” to deplane...it’s taken about 45 min... Don’t overpromise and under deliver"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and fine."
Cons: "Don’t delay all your flights American Airlines. They are never on time."
Cons: "Better WiFi and shows"
Cons: "Better customer service, no delays, respect for customers"
Pros: "Free movies on the included display and electric outlets are top notch."
Cons: "I wish they would offer food service more in the middle as we just ate before boarding."
Pros: "The crew was friendly to me on the plane but the gate staff at both Charlotte airport and Las Vegas airport were rude"
Cons: "The overall experience and when I missed my connecting flight because the plane wasn’t ready and we had to turn around because they let someone who was actively throwing up on the plane than decided she needed to go back we sat in that plane for 2 hours on the tarmac"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Pros: "Missed by connection"
Cons: "Make layovers longer"
Cons: "food and entertainment (5+ hours!)"
Cons: "Late flights with last minute notifications with no alternatives and then more late flights due to missing flight crews."
Cons: "Flight left the gate late, then sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes causing me to miss my connection to Austin. Couldn't get another flight that night to Austin so flew to Dallas, got in at midnight, had a to get a room which was not reimbursed. So sick of American Airlines and will not use them aga"
Pros: "Sat in the upgraded seats or I would have not enjoyed it as usual. I am very tall and flying is never pleasant. The 737 on the way out was terrible and shouldn’t be used on flights more than 2-3 hours. On the way back a much more comfortable 767. But again, upgraded seats only made it bearable."
Cons: "Their on board entertainment wasn’t working and apparently it only works intermittently. The live tv worked, but they only offer live news channels. Otherwise. Not much different than any other airline today. None are “good” any more. All about squeezing more people in smaller and smaller seats."
Pros: "Easy boarding crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was late"
Cons: "the flight was delayed which kept me nervous as I had a connecting flight in the international terminal which I almost missed."
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Cons: "Paid for gogoinflight, then is had a big error red screen, that said keep trying back in a few minutes. Never worked. Was not happy. Long flight."
Cons: "Missed connection due to AA gate agent not holding for a couple of minutes for connecting passengers. Also was given incorrect connnecting gate number. Resulted in extra flight and 5 more hours of travel in overnight trip. Also had maintenance delay on earlier AA flight."
Cons: "Filght was delayed by two hour with multiple repairs necessary including a few after we had already boarded. We sat on the tarmac for 1.5 hours."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers bringing hot food on plane. KFC and McDonalds odours major in first 30 minutes"
Pros: "Flight was punctual and service was good."
Cons: "Gate change"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Staff at the check-in counter made fun of my surname. Bad start but not noteworthy unless combined with the rest of the experience. The flight was delayed causing me to miss another AA connection by minutes. Waited in line to be told I wouldn't get on a flight til the following day, they couldn't help with accommodation and I wouldn't receive my luggage until the following day. In short, AA left me stranded in a strange city at midnight with no accommodation and no luggage. It was 18 degrees and I was in t-shirt and shorts. What a memory."
Cons: "The fact that for an aisle seat in economy I need to pay extra. I feel nickeled and dimed."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly, the plane was clean and food was ok"
Cons: "Having to stand in line with a 2 year old while rude passengers rush to board not caring about anyone or anything bit getting to their seat. What happened to letting customers with small children board first"
Cons: "24 hr trip. Morning business meeting- How did my bag not make my flight? I would have carried it on, if I didn’t trust AA to provide excellent service. This is now impacting my business."
Pros: "Good cookie snack"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"
Pros: "An early morning flight and all went well."
Cons: "I found out at the airport the day we were leaving for Spain that my daughter's passport had to be valid for 3 Months after we returned home from our trip. When booking a flight out of the country it would be nice if Air .com could of mention that to me. We were trying to get to a cruise we had already paid for that was going out of Spain. They would not work with me at all and cx my whole booking. When I tried to talk to them on the phone the man could not speak very good English and was not making any since at all. I let him talk to the British Airlines counter manager and the manager tried to explain that he would have to rebook us that he could not. Air.com was horrible and never helped us out at all. They should not be in business . I paid them of course months ago and I was just out the 1400.00 dollars. British Airlines was amazed that they did nothing to help us out."
Pros: "Flight was delayed in classic AA form, ten minutes at a time, leaving you standing around the gate picking your nose with no information! An hour later we board. Our flight attendant Nicky was awesome!"
Cons: "The plane had no power outlets and spotty WiFi. Even though they knew we were late to Charlotte, they let our connection take off EXACTLY on time while dozens of us rand through the airport. AA does this to themselves, they are the worst!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. The flight itself was uneventful and arrived 19 minutes early. The follow flight to Toronto was about equally late, but construction and heavy traffic made it unavoidable. I saved a lot of money with the Hopper app. Flying used to be nicer, but this is what cost cutting (anywhere) results in - less service and less comfort. We get what we demand - whether we really want it or not."
Cons: "I miss the 'free' services such as food, but we all know it wasn't that great anyway."
Cons: "My flight was pushed back and I was never notified and I had to reschedule my flight completely from Vegas to Frankfurt"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The 10:50 PM flight was delayed beyond midnight with no prior indication. The reason given was the flight from Dallas delayed due to weather. This looks childish. Why not pay for inconvenience. Is our time and hardship so invaluable?"
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Paying for extra legroom, delays, being told the flight may be canceled if we didn't leave by a certain time, no beverage service"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed overnight in Las Vegas, which was hassle but unavoidable due to weather and pilot flight hours restrictions. But the ground crew and American Airlines worked very hard to compensate all the passengers: gave us each a voucher for hotel, 2 meals, round trip shuttle ride for hotel and airport. Good work to make up for a bad situation."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seat very uncomfortable. American doesn't let you standby for earlier flight- charges 75 dollars Gate agent wasn't helpful-pointed in general direction of kiosk to pay the 75 dollars Flight attendants passed up our entire row for drinks"
Cons: "I hated that my flight got delayed for over an hour and I was not informed of this delay. I had people waiting at the airport to pick me up so it would've been beneficial for me to know of the delay."
Cons: "The flight attendant was the rudest one I have ever encountered in 47 years. She had short stacked blond hair. Her name tag was covered. She was rude to me and very rude to another passenger. She should be disciplined."
Pros: "General professionalism of crew"
Cons: "Food selection was poor, small quantity, and bad value. Online boarding pass didn't work for return flight first time, but worked a second time."
Pros: "wi-fi access"
Cons: "Flight was late, crew didn't speak to passengers when boarding or de-boarding, passengers had to check carry=on bags due to limited space"
Pros: "impressed the pilot was greeting passengers as we boarded AND exited.What a nice man he was too! Cheerful and friendly. Guessed I was teacher!"
Cons: "boarding is awful. People having to practically crawl over each other. Some trying to get into their seat, some have to go further, clogs if people trying to get their carry on overhead. AWFUL! WHY CANT YOU LOAD THE PLANE BACK TO FRONT!"
Pros: "After traveling on a budget airline to Las Vegas and having a horrific experience, I couldn't have been more pleased with the comfort and cleanliness of the aircraft as well as the friendliness of the flight crew!"
Cons: "The plane was pretty chilly and I was FREEZING, but when I asked for a blanket they told me they only hand them out to the first-class passengers. In addition, they did forget to download our in-flight movie, but we all make mistakes :)"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "Once again my flight was delayed, this time 50 minutes!! . Last time i had to stop in Vegas I got stuck there overnigh because my flight had been delayed and to mKe things worse they also managed to Miss my flights connection in Miami after they had booked me a new flight.. With a window seat that had no window. I old the flight attendant that I needed help stowing my backpack in the overhead bin, not because it was that heavy or big, but because the previous flight had been 5 hrs long and after being stuck in the middle seat my back was killing me and lifting my bag over my head would have triggered a muscle spasm. I have a back condition and they refused to help me. She would not even hear me out and insisted on me to check my bag, which I refused to because my laptop and tablet were in there without propper padding to protect them. The same flight attendant had already yelled at a passanger and was making a scene that made several other passengers uncomfortable. i understand the flight was full and they were delayed enough, but the airline clients should not have to pay for the airline's mistakes."
Pros: "Great flight attendants and agents, employees care about providing quality customer service to the consumer."
Cons: "No media device on the plane to provide entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable and tiny. My wife is 5'4" &120 lbs and found her seat uncomfortable...we were also sitting in comfort seats. It is 2016, please stop the madness of having coast to coast flights with no entertainment available."
Cons: "My seat was next to someone who should have been made to buy 2 seats. I could barely put my seat belt on. My boyfriend & I had to fly for almost 4 hours very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Clean comfortable flight, safe. Nice crew."
Cons: "Better snacks!!! More room between seats!!!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Seats are small"
Cons: "Nothing. It was it is."

Pros: "Nothing special. It was an ordinary flight"
Cons: "More leg room and cushioned armrests"
Cons: "Flight carry on baggage mandatory green tag check in. Very small flight. green tag Baggage being asked to be taken from b baggage carousels after waiting for a while. At baggage carousels the baggage arrival delayed by 30 mins. Flight had rough landing"
Cons: "The flight was a little early which I truly love! Everything else was just fine."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment on the plane with directv."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable at all. My back was aching by the end of the flight. The power outlet under the seat would have been great, had it been working."
Pros: "I was able to find a space for my luggage in the overhead compartment"
Cons: "Seat outlets didn’t work. Flight attendant on the PA didn’t know what city we were flying to. Poor communication regarding reason for flight delay Flight attendant making snarking comments about if we get to their seats we do if we don’t we don’t."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. They were professional, efficient and very accommodating. The pilot was also excellent. He kept us informed of the status of the flight throughout the trip."
Cons: "The plane was terrible. The seats are so close together that you cannot move. The aisle is so narrow that one person can barely down it. Forget it if you have to pass by someone. The bathroom too is so small that you cannot move in it. It’s so uncomfortable. The new boarding process is just dumb. And to make matters worse they don’t even bother to check the boarding groups when you board. I had a person in a later boarding group in front of me and they let her on anyway — so what’s the point of having boarding groups. They should just go back to boarding from the rear of the plane first - that is the most efficient and quick way to do it. The so called entertainment is a joke. There is a very small choice of movies/TV shows to watch and that’s it. The free wi-fi gets you nowhere."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No snavks"
Cons: "My entertainment console didn’t work and I was unable to purchase movies/direct tv"
Pros: "Reasonably helpful counter staff that let me still board 10 mins before takeoff"

Pros: "quick, considerate servers, clean,"
Cons: "was not able to checkin online. had to go to the counter and wait in line ot get checked in. this needs to be improved. unable to get Rouge entertainment once in the air. so couldnt watch movies. this should be expained while on the ground before take off."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and caring."
Pros: "It got us from a to b but not much more to be said!"
Cons: "The idea of the entertainment system broadcast to your hand held device is fine - it didn't work for me though."
Pros: "The crew was great and loved being able to board first with my baby without paying extra."
Cons: "The five hour delay was insane and unorganized."
Pros: "Some of the United reps in Chicago were helpful"
Cons: "The united representative at LAS had no interest in customer service. This delay cost my family a lot of inconvenience. In short my wife spent her 50th birthday waiting in an airport with no compensation from united"
Cons: "Southwest has much better experience."
Cons: "Ticket check in employee was extremely rude. Put me on stand by for the next flight even though they were still letting people onto my original flight."
Cons: "United changed their luggage policy and because I booked through priceline/kayak I was not made aware of this new policy. Basic economy only allows you to bring a personal item on the plane, YOU CANNOT HAVE A CARRYON ITEM. Therefore they charge $25 to check your carry on bag and my flight then became more expensive than a different flight. Poor dissemination of information."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly and professional. The flight also arrived early."
Cons: "If you're going to offer personal device entertainment, you need to offer power outlets. How is that not common sense?"
Cons: "Lack of information from United. Eventually had to buy a ticket from another airline."

Pros: "Flight was delayed but arrived only 1/2 hour later. Check in was smooth. Plane was rather old and not enough leg space."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was very customer-friendly. I had asked for a meal and they had a long, in drink service so it took awhile for her to come back to me. She didn't forget and she gave it to me at a discount so I was very happy about that as well."
Pros: "When i did my online check in, i just found out that i was separated with my companion. One hour before boarding opens i took the chance to request in the boarding desk if we could be seated together, i spoke with Ms. Nan, she said she'll do her best. Diting boarding time as soon as i was sat, she came approach me and said she had a seat for us together. I was so greatful to Ms. Nan. That is why I love united so much."
Cons: "Did not get a receipt/mail of booking, had to call to make sure the flight was actually booked."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, so I cancel my flight with United and went with another airline that was ontime."
Pros: "Flight and service were great."
Cons: "United it terrible at letting you know flights are delayed. Got to the airport and found out my flight wasn't going to take off till 2:45 which was 4 hours later then my scheduled flight. I asked the ticketing associate why it was delayed and she said that it was due to crew issues. At least let me know that the flight is delayed so I didn't have to get to the airport 5 hours before my flight took off."
Pros: "I really liked the boarding process at Las Vegas. The process was pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "The flight was a little rocky and I wasn't feeling well, but that's not exactly something the airline can control. :)"
Pros: "I was feeling sick and the attendant really went out f their way to make me feel at ease"
Cons: "I wish there was better edible snacks"
Cons: "My mother Vickie is hearing impaired. When her fist flight from Las Vegas to San Francisco changed terminals, she missed her flight. Not exactly something she would have been able to personally hear. Being that it was her 2nd time flying, ever, she didn't know to look for it until it was too late. Now her connecting flight from San Francisco to Anchorage has been delays to just shy of an hour. I wake up at 4am and thus is a HUGE burden on me as I'm a Dept Director at a Hospital and I need to be on my game at all times while at work."
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane"
Cons: "My TSA Precheck status would not print on the boarding pass. My number was in the system. I've used it multiple times flying UAL."
Pros: "Service was outstanding. United has made tremendous improvements."
Cons: "Legroom was too tight."
Cons: "The landing and departing gates were too far apart to make a connecting flight."
Cons: "The staff"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and ground staff was respecrful"
Cons: "Seats are way too small and I am only 5ft 7 inches short."
Pros: "Plane was new and nice"
Cons: "Flight delayed 6 hours with inadequate information and no compensation plan, no customer service in the LAS airport"
Cons: "Boarding is mismanaged. They have several lines for zones, we were zone 3 so we correctly stood in the correct line. Employees did not check zones and allowed many to cut ahead. Paid for upgrading seats, they did not recline."
