Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Delayed flight. Sat on Tarmac for 60 mins"
Pros: "The touch screens had lots of movie options, which was nice."
Cons: "The crew wasn’t friendly and the seats are crazy narrow"
Pros: "I got on my flight"
Cons: "Flight delay could’ve been backed up with a reason why. Nothing was said until we asked."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and on time."
Cons: "The temperature was so hot at one point I was getting sick to my stomach. Twenty minutes later I was putting on a jacket."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Leaving airport on time would’ve been a pleasure"
Pros: "The plane was big and spacious."
Cons: "When we landed to lax, the crew should announce where our baggage claim is. It was different from what was texted, what was on the monitors. The location changed without announcement. After an hour, one agent said to go to another area to find my bag. 1 hr in baggage claim is excessive."
Cons: "On time is always better, otherwise it was a good flight."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The crew was either tired or not at it best; service was just ok. No smiles."
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Didn’t do beverage service and had to sit on the tarmac for a while for a maintenance issue before take off"
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "paid for a window seat, got no window. The map on the website dictated a window and exit row. This was not the case. This flight is always late. Waiting on baggage in Midland takes 30+ minutes"
Cons: "They have very long and annoying credit card announcements"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Flight was 55 minutes late leaving making me miss my connection home. Awesome."
Pros: "The flight got me there"
Cons: "WiFi was too slow to be able to watch anything. Seat small and uncomfortable. Flight attendants not friendly."
Pros: "staff was nice, but check-in is clumsy and inefficient"
Cons: "plane from Prague to Philly is ancient, still has the drop-down screens from 1981 and the radio station dial for listening in, but that didn't even matter as the video system was down for half the flight. No electrical charging capability unless you carry a car adapter with you. Overhead space was tiny. At least they had headrests, which is weird since the seats are obviously 30+ years old. Business class and first have been upgraded with new features."
Pros: "I appreciated that they were interested in the general welfare of the whole craft in the midst of storms."
Cons: "The long delays, the cancellation near midnight, the long lines to what I thought was going to be some type of reimbursement for all the inconvenience at now having to find lodging for the evening, spend an entire day back at the airport, and transport myself from the NEW airport they made available for me from the original airport I had chosen. Absolutely NO compensation or reimbursement due to "weather." While I understand they can't control the weather, this is literally one of the greatest elements in their company. They should have provisions FOR it. Running out of airlines I could trust and rely on, and thought American would deliver. But No, not even this one. Extremely disappointed and staying away from AA."
Cons: "Although I understand turbulence is a common experience during a flight, I would have appreciated a bottle of water from crew after they suspended service."
Pros: "The seats were smalllish but had excellent amenities, such as a multifunction screen and built-in chargers for my phone or such."
Cons: "We were 35 minutes late in boarding, which is not a big deal, but the cabin temperature was very warm and I was sweating most of the trip. Not happy about that."
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "Delayed for about 45 mins"
Cons: "Not enough time in London to change planes. We missed the flight"
Pros: "Boarding was more efficient than I expected. And the leg room was very good, but the seats were narrow. Narrow seats made it a bit uncomfortable for a long 13 hour flight. Crew was efficient and very friendly."
Cons: "The sandwiches were too cold - actually had ice cycles. Narrow seatingwas constricting and entertainment wasn't varied enough."
Cons: "Long time sitting in the plane without any updates from the crew. Very inefficient process in re-booking passengers and switching planes. Maintenance issues are are a trend at American Airlines."
Pros: "People were nice"
Pros: "I was truly surprised by how smooth the entire experience was on this flight. The crew was excellent and the flight was on time!"
Pros: "Plane was cleaner than most. Not freezing cold like almost all other flights"
Cons: "Paid for upgrade that wasn't great. Next class down was just as good. AWFUL FOOD!! Worst I have ever had. HATE the new seat design. Cant lean against the window because of the gap. My purse fell through the gap onto the floor behind my seat. Had to ask the person behind me 3 times to please hand it back to me. The armrest doesnt go up which helps at times getting in and out. It is a large uncomfortable impediment. The remotes were all over the place, down in the seat, on the floor. No one could find the plug in for the headphones. It is in the most ridiculous place!"
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time and friendly and efficient service during flight."
Cons: "The boarding staff were very unprofessional. Will not fly American out of Reagan again."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight"
Cons: "I was upset with overall customer service"
Pros: "Allowed us to pre-order with our daughter who needed our support."
Cons: "We were told the overhead was full, so we had to check our bags, but once we boarded there were complete compartments empty. I suspect they were just trying to depart earlier."
Cons: "There should be entertainment on a 6 hr flight."
Cons: "Our 10:40AM flight got cancelled. We had to wait in line until 1AM with regular check-ins to rebook for 8:40AM. When we made it to the airport again after limited sleep, that flight also got cancelled. We bought a ticket with LATAM which was a breeze. Throughout the following week, we tried calling them numerous times to have them tell us we had to loose yet more time by having to go to their Cusco office... but they couldn't resolve the issue either. We had to escalate this over the phone from their office so they would issue us a flight back to Lima at no charge to us. Now, I can only hope that they will honor this ticket but I'm not expecting much."
Cons: "It was a full flight, anyone in loading zones 7-9 were required to check their carry-on luggage. We were in loading zone 6, so not required and preferred not to due to our full day of air travel that would continue into a 3 hour car trip. My husband reached the gate, his ticket scanned, and let onto the plane. I walk up next, my ticket is scanned and then the personnel at the gate said in what I can only describe as the most disrespectful, inconsiderate, ill-tempered tone that he would need take my bag. He grabbed it out of my possession, shoved it into the luggage sizing rack and even though it did fit inside the lines, he said it was "too close" and would need to be checked. Not wanting to cause a scene and quite frankly speechless by this man's attitude, I did not object.. It was not until I was seated on the plane that I noticed more than a dozen items of luggage larger than mine and that the vast majority of people that had 3, 4, 5 carry on items when the maximum is 2: one personal item and one carry on luggage item. It was both the lack of respect and the lack of consistency that lead me to have an extremely "poor" boarding experience. Serious retraining needs to be completed and boarding attendants should not be able to harass airline passengers."
Pros: "Boarding, crew"
Cons: "entertainment, 1st luggage payment"
Pros: "Cabin crew (one person) was courteous and professional, but definitely in charge."
Cons: "AA has the same shuttle problem at DCA."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Ac was broke on plane, no wifi or entertainment options, lots and lots of being kept in the dark waiting and waiting after already boarding the plane or landing on the runway"
Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"
Pros: "Closer to home"
Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."
Pros: "Nice plane. Great staff. 45 minutes of pleasure."
Pros: "Overall, I liked the experience. Usually, I fly with southwest but I liked the price and comfort with American."
Cons: "Deley for 30 minutes on take off 10 minutes on landing"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."
Cons: "Was delayed for several hours then when the plane showed up the flight was cancelled. I was not given I decent deal I was put on a letter flight when in actually I made if home earlier because of a desk woman who noticed I she could help. I was given a small sandwhich it was already late at night. No place to stay nothing while stuck in Dallas. Ended up going to philly then Newport News."
Pros: "That the plane was on time .i was a passenger on Delta airlines when their system shut down so transferred to American"
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
Cons: "The flight crew cavalier attitude by not coming on to apologize"
Pros: "Late leaving Houston, but the pilots did a great job landing in very windy conditions."
Pros: "Despite all the security checks, it was easy to board even in group 4. :)"
Cons: "Food was just mediocre. Would be nice to see a menu. They didn't offer slippers and the eye masks for the long flight. Comfort plus seats were spacious not really "comfortable:"
Pros: "i got home."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour waiting on the crew. Seems perhaps common with this flight since I had a problem with the leg coming up earlier in the week."
Cons: "The flight was about 9 hours delayed and I didn’t feel like anyone was trying to make up for it"
Cons: "Never got the chance to make it to Norfolk with United. They would not provide us a plane same day or our money back or money for the rental car we required."
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed by 4 hours due tknsmong in India. I called United ahead of time to tell them I was not able to make my flight and if there was anyway I could get a new ticket. The representative was confident that 40 minutes between my flights at Delhi was enough time to make it despite me reminding her about the time it took to get off the plane, pick up my luggage, get through immigrations and travel to my terminal. She was very wrong. She insisted I call them when I land and that I go to the ticket booth. Little did she know that once I miss my flight my ticket is no longer valid and I was no longer able to enter the airport in India. Once I reached the entrance I was directed to a Untied booth all the way at the end of the terminal and was told to buy a new ticket. There was no United representative at this booth. I waited 3 hours and even called the number posted at the booth. No one picked up and no one came. I had wasted several hours. I ultimately decided to buy a ticket online spending another thousand dollars to get back home when I was told that I would be given a new ticket at the booth by United. But I had to wait another 24 hours outside the airport because I was not allowed in so early prior to my flight. Very unprofessional and unhelpful when I needed it the most."
Pros: "On time and efficient."
Cons: "I’m still hungry. Walking halfway round the airport to get to my connection destroyed my eating time. I hate that food has been removed from domestic flights. Another long walk from landing gate to transportation while still hungry."
Pros: "Crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Flight was canceled"
Pros: "The flight attendant kept the drinks and snacks coming and looked abundantly joyful to serve us. One of the best flights I've ever been on."
Cons: "No pillow or blanket."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good..."
Cons: "Baggage delayed for three days... had a terrible unnecessary painful stay at delhi,india.. claimed for compensation since July 19th, still on pending..."
Pros: "The crew was a little harsh to passengers and rough speaking. 2 of them stood out from the rest."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The entertainment screen did not work, After repeatedly asking for an aisle seat - I was asked to pay $200 for a seat selection."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was awful! It was absolutely too warm and uncomfortable. On a full flight. Arrived early again, had to sit on the plane to wait for the ground crew and then had to wait over an hour for checked luggage. Again ridiculous."
Pros: "crew helped me get on flight from standby list and were especially helpful at gate"
Cons: "at first they told me i would have to check carryon at gate even though i had measured it and kbew it would fit under seats."
Cons: "It wasn't until AFTER everyone boarded the plane at 9:45 that they informed us that " they only had until midnight to reboot their system so they HAVE to do it RIGHT THEN" then they informed us twice that it was "stuck" and "not working" our plane was supposed to land at 11:18 and we didn't take off until 11:00. My husband has work at 5:30 in the morning as well as my brother who was supposed to pick us up and they are in the navy so being late isn't an option. My brother could no longer pick us up due to the fact that we did t get our luggage until 1 in the morning and he has work in a few hours so we had to wait for a taxi and pay a buttload to get home in Virginia Beach. NOT PLEASED!!"
Pros: "We arrived there early"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "No food on a 3 hour flight?"
Cons: "The upgrade was pointless as it put me next to the Bathroom. Food was inedible. Crew was testy"
Pros: "Much nicer flight attendant than my last united experiance . 45 minute flight so not much to tell"
Cons: "Crew remained their usual ignorant, uninterested , back-of-the-plane kitty party groupies"
Pros: "The lady crew member was so sweet and kind."
Cons: "The first seat on the plane you couldn't see out the window because it was blurred with dirt or something, there was no foot room"
Pros: "Crew were great"
Cons: "$27 for a double Jack and (1/2 a can) Coke and a beer seems excessive."
Cons: "Had to be transferred to a different airline because my first flight was delayed which would have made me miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "This flight was a complete change. We boarded quickly and I and took off on time."
Pros: "Direct flight Flight take off and landing timing"
Cons: "Packed like sardines. Way too much Crew unmindful of passenger comfort (attitude) Food was just ok, especially the soggy sandwich snacks"
Cons: "Could not understand the announcements on the overhead speakers. Chicago remains one of the poorest hub airports to go through. Crowded. Small gate areas. People lining up to board need to stand in the walkways."
Cons: "Due to snowstorm, my flight was rescheduled with Delta. I was on hold on the phone for almost an hour and half to change my flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Pay for drink Old farts as crew ..sulky and not helpful"
Cons: "It was a 15.5 hour flight, and food was served 14 hours apart! Could've served the second meal a bit earlier."
Cons: "The flight to Dulles was okey but flight to Norfolk was constant shaking of airplane without any explanation from the pilot of the problem and everyone was a little uptight wondering what was going on. Crew un able to do any of their duties! Very Unpleasant. Not sure I will fly United again!"
Cons: "I never feel you stay alert to make sure the earlier people don't take up all the overhead bins . It is not right the way you allow them to overload have too many big carryons"
Pros: "Good crew on both legs of my flight. Airbus from LAX to Chicago was a bit tight, but Chicago to Norfolk was pretty comfortable (different plane). . The SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT thing about this.....and any other flight.....is leaving your place or origin and arriving at your destination SAFELY and without incident. For this, I'm always happy for an uneventful flight. Thanks United."
Cons: "You DO have to have the United app to watch any entertainment. This is kind of a downer. If you have WiFi on a plane, why limit it to just ONE app? Standard snacks and drinks so nothing special there"
Pros: "Second flight was a million times better"
Pros: "People was very nice"
Pros: "Finally got onto the plane and the rest of my experience was much better."
Cons: "When i got to Houston, the monitors were down, getting help from United was not easy, was passed off to many people and finally directed to the ticket counter. This was my first time in Houston and the gates were a bit confusing. I was in B area of airport for my tiny plane. I was told where to go with the wave of her hand and she did not want to be bothered more...got to the gated area and the agents there were way too busy chatting to be bothered. On my return trip home was better because i now knew the layout. I am sure my next trip will be improved."
Cons: "Was not happy to have to make 2 stops"
Cons: "People carry to many carry-on's and many times to large but the policy is not enforced."
Pros: "Kind men beside me"
Cons: "I will never accept the last row of seating EVER!!! I have a bruised knee and double sprained ankles and could not lean back. It was the most awful flight of my like. I could barely get out of the row. I sat in 39A. Horrible I tell you."
Pros: "They have a snack and a drink on such a short flight."
Pros: "We were nearly 2 hours late. Terrible."
Cons: "We were nearly 2 hours late. Terrible."
Cons: "Flight was delayed a total of 3.5 hours with each delay being posted as 30 minutes. Very little information provided by the gate employees. On this trip we flew a total of 4 legs (with 5 boarding opportunities due to one leg being rescheduled to the next day as a result of delays) and had "mechnical delays" on 4 of the 5 boarding opportunities. We won't be flying United again."
Pros: "Great Dep and Arrival times. Punctuality. In fact flight arrived an hour earlier."
Cons: "In flight service appeared to be just mechanical.."
Pros: "As usual the staff were great! The flight was on time."
Cons: "No snacks were distributed. I would've thought they could've handed out pretzels or peanuts."
Pros: "Flight itself was good. Nice flight attendants. Funny pilot."
Cons: "The lady at desk to board the flight made me check my carry on. I had assumed it was because the plane was full, but when I got on the plane there were more than adequate spots to stow more bags. There was a compartment across from my seat that remained open the entire flight. While I completely understand the need to check extra luggage when the plane is full, I was very upset when I saw it was not. I intentionally fly with a carry on for the convenience, and to be inconvenienced for absolutely no reason made me not want to fly with this company again for fear it could happen again in the future."
Pros: "Honestly nothing. The flight was a disaster."
Cons: "Second flight of the day with zero drink service. I suppose the hostesses were too busy napping and eating their dinner as they never left the last row of the plane. They sure had drinks and dinner even though we didn't. Also should have cancelled or delayed the flight rather than make us wait forever on the plane waiting for a new route to miss weather at our destination."
Pros: "On time and arrived early"
