Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good."
Cons: "Forgot how small the Bombardier 400 seats are. And they are uncomfortable. Need to upgrade to a plane with bigger seats. Also the prop noise was a lot louder then I remember."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Everyone from Bag check in thru baggage claim were courteous and attentive."
Pros: "The crew was quite good at serving us water often."
Cons: "The plane was 50 minutes late in departure. On boarding process was a mess because the crew tried to rush everyone. Then all three bathrooms in economy class broken down about two third of the way to Washington. First class bathroom is the only one working with a long line at the economy cabin..."
Pros: "Loved the crew"
Pros: "First class away with leg rest on first flight was very nice. Great gate agents in BRW, Anchorage and Omaha."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, downgraded to coach on replacement flight, luggage was lost (still waiting), surly gate agent on CRT leg. No need to be so unpleasant."
Pros: "Short flight, generous complimentary drink portions."
Cons: "Another passenger was in my assigned seat. When I called him on it, he acted all confused, but made no effort to move. I had to put my bag in a further bin because there was no room in the one next to my seat and when I returned to my seat, the man was still there. I told an attendant, but the man only gave me the number of HIS seat and told me it was the same. I told him it was NOT the same. I assumed he wanted to sit next to a friend, so I just let it go and the flight attendant just kind of drifted away. I also didn't want to be the one getting tackled by an Air Marshall for causing a fuss. Turns out, that man didn't even know the person he was sitting next to. I suspect he just wanted to get out of the plane sooner. Either way, this shouldn't be allowed to happen - what's the point of choosing your seats if someone else can just take it from you?"
Pros: "Service with the attendants on beverages"
Cons: "Being delayed and bumped to another location..the flight was bumpy a lot..my hour and half lay over for the other location.."
Pros: "The seat was ok and has plenty of leg room. I think I ended up in a premium seat for some reason."

Pros: "Efficiency and spotless plane."
Pros: "The coffee was good and the crew was attentive and helpful."

(-_-) really? I will think twice before flying with this airline again"

Cons: "The flight was delayed. The pilot explained that the plane had been sitting in the sun all day and during the flight check, they realized that the interior of the plane had gotten over 100 degrees by not being operated for hours before the flight. Seems like poor planning or preparation."

Pros: "by airlines"
Cons: "flying next day trough LAX"
Cons: "flight was delayed two hours because they couldn't find a single American airlines employee to sign off on some log book.sat on tarmac two hours because no one could sign a piece of paper!!! so obviously we missed our connecting international flight to dublin. called american customer svc, they made us call british airways, british airways said we had to call kayak, kayak said we had to call American. thanks for all the great customer svc. this is why everyone hates flying and all airlines are garbage. then finally in chicago american customer svc desk said they rebooked us on a British airways flight the same night, we traversed (ran) the entire chicago ohare airport only to find out british airways said we were not on that flight, were completely full and we had to go back to american. literally had to leave airport to get on train to go back to american terminal. they swear we are now (the next day) on this aer lingus flight despite our inability since last night to try and check in to that flight because aer lingus website doesnt work, no one answers their customer service number and their ticket counter at airport doesnt open until noon. suffice it to say we are still not on a flight to Dublin, ive missed an entire day of a limited vacation, and i will NEVER fly american again."
Pros: "Horrible landing. Also-landed early and srive around for 20 min with no announcement from cockpit"
Cons: "Our seats wouldn't hardly go back, but noticed that a few seemed to operate properly. Tried to watch a movie (94minutes) on a 2.1 hr flight. Started it before takeoff and with all of the inflight announcements the credits didn't get finished before they shut down the system."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Pros: "crew friendly"
Pros: "Dreamliner plane"
Cons: "Terrible service from get go which continued when landing in Melbourne with hopeless Qantas."
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "The airline charged me $50 for my carry on even though they told me I could hate check it earlier. Apparently they changed their mind and I am $50 poorer. This is after being a loyal American card member for over 10 years. BS."

Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"

Cons: "Late departures both ways."
Cons: "PA system was painfully too loud."

Pros: "Comfy seats and they offered a beverage"
Cons: "Our plane smelled horrible: like a bus full of HS boys after playing basketball in Satan's sauna for 2 1/2 hrs. No entertainment options but it was less than an hour flight so didn't really care. Our flight attendant said nothing about our carry on being bigger than the compartments of our tiny plane so we walked to the back with our bag just to bring it bag and them check it"
Pros: "This was very different than most United flights I have been on. Even in Economy the seats were wide, well padded, with actual legroom. How I wish I had this plane on the 4 hour trip that preceded it. Way to go, United. Buy more of these planes."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Late flight"
Pros: "Overall, the flight and crew were great. Thank you."

Pros: "'Nuff said"
Cons: "Everything else was great!!!"
Cons: "lack of storage space overhead. cramped seating. old plane. no wifi or entertainment."
Cons: "The weather in SF delayed is so very long while the airport staff were rather rude at both airports. And after all that, my bag did not make it on my connecting flight- or maybe it did but you guys texted me it didn't via your little app- and I had to go back for it mysef the next day becuase you would not deliver it or help me find it. wanted to be compensated for my long and horrible ordeal."
Pros: "Our first leg of the flight was great."
Cons: "My husband was upgraded to first class, but they wouldn't upgrade me. The rep at the boarding station was very, very rude as well. We will reconsider when it's time for the next trip. We do have a choice on who we fly with."
Pros: "Automatically rebooked flight was changed free-of-charge to a different destination."
Cons: "Original flight was delayed, which was understandable due to inclement weather. Connecting flight, which was also United Airlines, was either uninformed of the delay, or indifferent. Myself and two other passengers arrived 2 minutes before the flight left, were told we could not board, and watched the plane undock from the gate and fly away."
Cons: "Grinding and whining while plane in taxi- extremely loud frinding when landing gear engaged and disengaged"
Cons: "My bag was misplaced after being gate checked, it ended up going to baggage claim, not a huge inconvenience, but after all our trouble with United, it was frustrating and we were tired and not interested in waiting for our bags (which is why we took carry on only in the first place)."
