Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "I had some issues with the Onboard entertainment in terms of connecting with the site. I typically do not have this problem with my airline of choice but choose you because of the proximity of my hotel to my desired departure airport as well as price."

Cons: "I understand main cabin isn't supposed to be as upscale as 1st class, but it would do well if the seats were a bit more comfortable and the headrest was softer, it feels like a lump or sack of potatoes.

Cons: "Too many delays"
Cons: "Check in staff was unprepared for volume of people. When asking an American Airlines agent if I could use the priority check in because I had priority seating I was told no. I was informed by a customer going that way that I indeed could. When I got in line for the priority check in, the agent looked over and very loudly said that I was in the wrong check in area. Given the volume at which it was said to me I felt embarrassed, and was upset at the fact that I then had to respond that I indeed was in the correct location."

Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"
Pros: "Excellent service and very friendly; thanks!"
Pros: "i dislike booking with British Airways and ending up flying with American Airlines, who is their partner. This usually happens from US>London, but happened both ways this trip. AA flies outdated aircraft with old entertainment systems. Time for an upgrade! AA crew is okay, but BA crew is better. Might choose a different carrier next time."

Cons: "I didn't like how there was wifi available, but it wouldn't work"

Pros: "That it was a short flight."
Cons: "Small plane. I had to gate check my standard size carry-on bag because the plane was so small. Waste of a first class flight. How and why is there even a category for entertainment? There is no more entertainment unless provided by yourself. Even the free wifi is bullshit! I was given a warm beer! First class is not worth the money."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and hospitable."
Cons: "I didn't like how small the seat was on this flight. I'm used to flying JetBlue and getting extra comfort. Also, my television wasn't working properly. I would start a show and then it would play for a couple minutes then the screen would go out, but the sound still on. This happened with every show I tried. Overall I was disappointed in the new American plane even for just a short flight. I can't imagine flying that for a long distance."

Cons: "An alternative to pretzels!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and came by often."
Cons: "There was a dog on the 10 hour flight, I thought United Airlines had an 8 hour limit. The dog barked throughout the flight, so obviously it was a pet not a service animal. UA needs to enforce its own policy."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional, and the food and beverage on the Lufthansa transatlantic sector were better than US carriers offer."
Cons: "The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat. I will avoid this aircraft if possible in the future."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, professional, and communicative."
Pros: "Comfort was fair"
Cons: "It was delayed - enough to miss the flight"

Pros: "The staff that is it"

When it did arrive, my suitcase was broken. I tried filing a claim with United and they dismissed it and stated that they were not responsible - a recurring theme from this entire experience"

Pros: "Pleasent crew"
Pros: "The people on the plane were friiendly enough, the customer service once we were on the ground was terrible"
Cons: "United Customer Service Blamed weather for a delay, I am a pilot and didn't see any weather delays posted for Newark. Even if there was weather, they didn't hold our outbound flight and missed it by 15 minutes. Didn't comp us for a hotel, had to stay in Jersey out of pocket, Jersey is busy, dirty, smelly, and overcrowded. Not enough infrastructure for the people. We were lucky we got there 2 hours prior to flight time and had TSA Pre Check."

Cons: "United terminal gate crew at Norfolk International was horrible."

Pros: "The people were really nice. We left on time or early on most flights which was also nice. Like the variety of liquor and prices for beverage that's offered."
Cons: "The in flight entertainment doesn't compare to delta. Our last plane was getting retired so it didn't have any in flight entertainment and the snacks tasted really old. The other flights had spotty connection at best and was hard to connect to their movies."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "I don't think it's fair that you don't any money back of you cancel your plane ticket. It shouldn't matter what type of ticket it was. You should at least be allowed a voucher for the amount of the ticket at a later date. Even if it's a percentage off, you should be allowed something. How is it that you can buy a car worth thousands, and be allowed to return it under the Lemon Law. When a company called can make billions of dollars doing this, it's just taking advantage of the little people."
Pros: "I think your agents on up did well handling rebooking and upset people. I was told I would miss my flight first thing this morning but the agent was able to get me on and I arrived in CR only 1. Hour late. Thank you for the great service. It has to be hard picking up the pieces after the hurricane."

Pros: "Norfolk is always good and professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed for more than 3 hours. The plane had technical difficulties... But the delay was sooo long."
Pros: "The flights were on the empty side so there was an open seat next to me"
Cons: "The first flight got delayed so I missed my connection. My connecting flight got delayed about five times and sat on the runway for over an hour. I ended getting home at eleven PM when I was anticipating getting home st 9:45 AM"
Cons: "Our flight had a "mechanical delay" which drug on for several hours (every 30 min there would be another 30 min delay). This eventually meant we would miss our connection to Munich and had to be rescheduled to the following day. The next day we had another round of "mechanical delays" and just barely made the connection."
Cons: "Typical horror story... Lied to by gate attendants... Hours late to destination with no apologies... Essentially got totally screwed without reimbursement."
