Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."
Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Pros: "They got me home eventually"
Cons: "Timeliness was awful. Late crew delayed the flight 50 min. Then ripped cargo net resulted in cargo shift."
Cons: "We landed early but the plane was late 50 minutes into gate. Plane went pst our gate twice, just driving around the terminal."
Cons: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"
Cons: "Speaker volume was too high."
Pros: "It got us there"
Cons: "Beverage service was cancelled due to turbulence but I’ve been in flights worse and they kept their service Had to wait long for a ramp at a remote terminal then take 2 shuttles to terminal."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."
Cons: "Commuter jet boarding at DCA is going to stink until the new terminal is completed. Just is."
Cons: "Too bad you paid$$$$ and they give you pretzels"
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Cons: "Small, cramped seating"
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick, and improvement has been made with people waiting for their boarding group to be called from crowding the boarding line. The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Several seat changes had to be made, but it all worked out."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Pros: "We left on time and the crew was very polite and helpful."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable. They would not recline at all. I was not looking to lay down but sitting straight up for 2 hours made it very uncomfortable. But, I guess since you added the extra seats, there is not enough room for anything. I am only 5'7" and feel sorry for those people who are much taller."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour (which wound up being a 3.5 hour delay in total, with all the continual delays that pursued afterwards(, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Pros: "CRJ 900s have more leg room than expected"
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Cons: "Completely ignored for beverage service"
Cons: "Poor communication Delays -3 hrs"
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Cons: "Rude staff, they changed our flight 2 times and did not offer a drink or food"
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."
Pros: "WHAT FOOD.,,,,,,.AA DOSE NOT FEE US OR HAVE ANY ENTERTAINMENT,"
Cons: "NOTHING AA IS JUST AS BAD AS FIJI AIRWAYS"
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment was out, and the a/c was barely working-not good for a four hour flight. Instead of addressing the issues the flight crew was more interested in chatting with each other. No pre-flight drink service in first class, they rarely even passed through the canin."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "no food"
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss."
Cons: "Worst shittiest experience! Delayed by 3 hours"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and was given another longer flight and had to pay for the luggage twice. Totally disappointed."
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "Crew, leg room, and entertainment."
Cons: "We had to be redirected because the plane's instrument landing system (ILS) failed. We were redirected to another airport where they had to make repairs and then fly back from Geneva to Zürich Switzerland. It made for a very long flight."
Cons: "Old plane even though we upgraded to first class it was just bigger seats no entertainment cold draft just horrible felt like we were flying back in the 80s. Lastly our luggage didn't come with our flight it came with the next flight. Horrible horrible experience"
Pros: "Rebooked me a nonstop flight to my destination!"
Cons: "Delays. O'Hare. United. Storms and air traffic control. Looking all across the board, it didn't look like anyone was leaving Chicago anytime soon."
Cons: "loudspeaker was way too loud - my hearing was fine before the flight...."
Pros: "I was returning from an international flight, and had carried my smallish rollerboard +1 personal bag all through (including outbound) with no problems. Just on the last leg, IAD to RDU, the gate agent forced me to check the bag, even though the flight was not full, and the bag could easily fit in the overhead bin. I was in Group 3."
Cons: "Forced to gate check rollerboard for no reason."
Pros: "every seat come with tV"
Cons: "Disappointed that few come with closed caption. Lousy choice of menu"
Cons: "Extremely noisy inside the smaller jets. Can't hear anyone or anything."
Pros: "My daughter was given assistance when needed."
Pros: "No delays, everything went smooth"
Cons: "I bought tickets for a Lufthansa flight with a Lufthansa flight number and confirmation notice, only to wait in line to find that it was a United flight and United didn't list the baby's ticket number that was in the Lufthansa confirmation! lost an hour resolving ticket issues. When I pay for Lufthansa tickets, I expect to have a Lufthansa flight with their great service."
Pros: "Did a good job of keeping us hydrated during the flight"
Cons: "The seltzer water is plain not lemon flavored as advertised in the magazine"
Cons: "1. Delayed flights- I took a round trip SFO-IAD. Both my flights were delayed by 3 hours each. Reached my destination at odd hours and was never compensated. 2. Not apologetic !"
Cons: "Flight delayed in Washington, then after we boarded sat on a hot plane for an hour while flight crew did "training". United never apologises for delaying flights, seems like they don't care for the customers at all."
Pros: "Ease of purchasing ticket online"
Cons: "The $230 change fee for a ticket that cost me $70. No recourse but to lose the money completely."
Pros: "The flight was on time and everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and it became one of the most chaotic ordeals to get from Newark to Seattle."
Cons: "Late full lounge bad food"
Pros: "Crew was great and accommodating due to hour delay"
Cons: "Late delay. Slow boarding. Sat on plane for hour before actual take off."
Cons: "It is outrageous that those seats and that legroom is legal. Something has to change!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours. In 15 minute increments so we kept thinking we were leaving and then it kept getting delayed. Almost missed my brother's graduation from basic training. Not pleased. I would like some kind of compensation for this. Also I am flying back now and my flights have been very delayed and I will arrive at least seven hours later than planned."
Pros: "I didn't like anything. The only positive was the polite crew . The flight was terrible. The conditions was very bad."
Cons: "Bad conditions. Bad flight. Delayed and the airport is terrible . Thank you for the safe flight. But please upgrade the services"
Pros: "Dirty, tired airplane. This (and every other flight going out around our gate) was "oversold"- egging travelers to give up their seats"
Pros: "On time, happy and efficient crew."
Cons: "No food, but beverages offered, understandable due to the quick flight."
Cons: "Gate crew was rude and I'm helping boarding process was terrible unorganized chaotic snacks were terrible only soda for drinks seats were terrible hard cramped no leg room very poor conditions no entertainment onboard systems did not work crew on board complaining about United Airlines"
Cons: "Late departure."
Cons: "Besides taking off late, the worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Ground and flight crew were all pleasant and professional"
Cons: "This flight is always fully booked - book your seat early if you can."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane. 2 seats on a side, 5 thumbs up."
Pros: "Great and on t time"
Pros: "Never got on"
Cons: "Never had a chance to find out if I would like it or not."
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Flight attendants were courteous. Boarding was quick."
Pros: "Everything went smooth and on time"
Pros: "I loved how quickly we departed and arrived at each destination!"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. People forgetting to even stand in line for their boarding groups getting to cut ahead of those whose group is currently in the process of boarding. That should not be allowed. It's rude and disrespectful to other passengers/customers."
Cons: "Maintenance delays and rerouting caused me to miss my reserved ground transit in LA... United claimed on the phone I would be reimbursed for a taxi, but changed their mind when I sent them a receipt a few days later."
Pros: "same comments as above"
Cons: "same comments as above"
Cons: "Tight aisle"
Pros: "I love United. They're now my go to airline. I love the pet friendliness as well as every employee through United I met today from the bdl check in crew , to especially the flight crew on flight558 iAd to phx who I believe was from Houston and their Texas roots truly shined. Every crew member was Sooo attentive professional Cleanly pleasant and always smiling and happy to come around. Other crews could learn from this crew please take notice !!! I have never been so impressed (and I am a frequent flyer )"
Cons: "Flight tracker wouldn't work on screen or on phone disappointing"
Pros: "Blanket for lap"
Cons: "No service /selections. Paid for movie and fat child continually shut off TV w his fat arm on my armrest Boarding is very poor no assists as flight attendants virtually unattentive LAX dirty disgusting and no shops seating or restaurants No mvmt to allow stiff swollen legs all cramped in tiny seats. I pay bag fees while others get free checked bags at the gates. Many people are able to carry huge extra backpacks w no enforcement from staff Slows the whole trip down"
