Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats were comfortable didn’t have to pay extra for my personal day crew was polite"
Pros: "Uneventful flight! Love that!"
Cons: "The crew is just over it all. They are Tired & put out by the job. They cannot even pretend to like their jobs. Quite unfortunate."
Cons: "Employees I understand that sometimes they see a lot of people and it can get overwhelming with the job but giving good attitude it’s a most."
Cons: "Boarding very slow in Medellin -always- Entertainment only in your phone now!"
Pros: "Crew was horrible. The flight attendant was rude to clients for no reason. On a power trip"
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "I am traveling with my 79yr old infirm mother. The crew was so kind & so helpful! On the scale of 1-10 (10=Best) they were like 100! Even though my flight was delayed a bit it was still VERY GOOD! Plus the flight was amazing. The flight was also amazing. Even though we were flying though a storm."
Cons: "You couldn’t have been on time because of the storm so there’s nothing that you could have done"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Airplane didn't have any AC and was very old and dirty."
Pros: "Crew was amazing considering we had a delay for a 18 minute flight due to weather. They passed out water etc.. even though they didn't have to"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "On times and good service - half-empty plane."
Pros: "Flying out around bad weather; lucky we got out in time. Pilot did a reasonable job keeping passengers up to speed on what was happening. Flight attendants were friendly and respectful. CRJ-900 leather seats are more comfortable than your average economy seat."
Cons: "In flight wifi didn't work the whole trip. Plane was a sauna getting in and on the ramp, air conditioning wasn't working on the ground. Boarding took FOREVER with some less than competent wheelchair agents (I think)."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats were extremely uncomfortable, and hurt my back very much."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The seat (as I am sure you know) is not 100% comfortable. One of those little pillows that some airlines provide would have been appreciated as I need a bit more back support."
Pros: "I really enjoyed kicking back and watching —- **EXCUSE ME EVERYONE ........ JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW.......... WE’RE GOING TO BE LANDING IN A COUPLE OF HOURS IN BEAUTIFUL..... SUNNY.... LOS ANGELES.... WHERE THE TEMPERATURE IS A PERFECT..... 72 DEGREES..... FAHERENHEIT** —-a couple of movies."
Cons: "*ding We Are GoingToBeLanding In Two Hours. *ding* I noticed there were a number of anno — *JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW.... THAT WE MAY EXPERIENCE SOME TURBULENCE.... BUT WE SHOULD BE LANDING A LITTLE EARLY..... IN ABOUT AN HOUR AND 45 MINUTES... YOU SHOULD REACH YOUR DESTINATION.... IN BEAUTIFUL... SUNNY... LOS ANGELES...* —uncements in the middle of watching a movie. And it seem — *ding* Some TurbulenceMayOccur PleaseFascenSeatBelts. FlightAndCrew PleasePrepareForLanding in OneHour and FortyFive Minutes *ding* —ed difficult to relax and pay attention to that movie. It sorta seemed like the pilot wanted us to — *ALRIGHT EVERYONE WE’RE EXPERIENCING SOME TURBULENCE HERE.... JUST WANTED TO LET YOU ALL KNOW.... TO FASCEN YOUR SEATBELTS..... AND PLEASE REMAIN SEATED* —pay attending to him instead of the movie or whatever other people were doing."
Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."
Pros: "the crew was very friendlily and the flight was great and confortable."
Pros: "They got another flight for us"
Cons: "4 hour delayed"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay due to the ground crew not having it together, this reason coming from the pilot. Flight attendant was complaining more than any of us passages. Even though 85% of us missed our connecting flights. After boarding the plane, the smell of the restroom, we all had to deplane."
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "Delayed on both flights"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Ease of travel. Seamless boarding process."
Pros: "Room between rows Entertainment from St Louis to Phoenix"
Pros: "Nice crew, very reasonable cost. Didn’t like the “no overhead access” but worth it for the money I saved."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously crowded. It’s really so uncomfortable and claustrophobic, even for shorter flights."
Pros: "I got there in one piece. Even made my connection (barely)"
Cons: "TSA were abusing power and pulling ppl out of line like crazy. Tried to take Christmas toys from someone (and they weren’t in violation of anything. ) flight was delayed and took so long it would have been faster to drive to Charlotte. Whole airport was the most inefficient thing I have ever seen."
Cons: "Me 6’ 200 lb sitting in middle seat next to somebody that needed 2 seats for self (pls understand I’m not unsensetive nor prejudice just stating a fact). I requested to sit in last row (of both sides of plane that were empty but attendant said sears reserved for attendants - 2)."
Pros: "I hope I never fly American again!!! We were supposed to leave at 2.pm, but dud not until 11 pm. The AA customer service staff wanted to charge me $ for my carry on! We missed our connection of course! Had to wait 2 hrs at next airport for a hotel. Did receive food vouchers and luggage was checked in right away (good thing). But overall ridiculous! Missed an entire day due to AA not having another plain? Or not finding another way to put passengers in other flights."
Cons: "Customer treatment and lack of interest on custmer satisfaction. The Denver staff was changed so often they had no clue about customers needs and it was all about making the bucks for the airline."
Cons: "The breakfast, no hot meal just sugary food."
Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."
Pros: "The airplale MD 80 are old"
Cons: "Canceled flight due to hurricane Irma and couldn't book me on a flight until 5 days later, had to buy an overpriced ticket on a different airline and still waiting for refund."

Cons: "The food, the salad can be better, there should be more on the tray than offered"
Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "we had to wait for the 4th flight attendant for almost 3h in la. The Crew at the gate wasn't even able to make proper announcements. The plane didn't provide charging stations for your devices, I would expect for a flight like this that you either have screens on each seat or you're be able to charge your devices"
Cons: "My flight was delayed leaving Ft Myers because of weather in Dallas. I got to Dallas and went to my connecting flight and was told I didn't have a seat anymore. No reason given, they just said you don't have a seat anymore and I'd have to take another flight. Complete garbage."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 30 minutes for maintenance, then no drinks on the flight. I've made this flight multiple times and always had the drink cart come through. Not this time for some reason. Was looking forward to a cup of coffee on an 8am flight."
Pros: "More options for entertainment on a long flight."
Cons: "There were no individual screens on the seat backs, Sono entertainment system . the whole plane had to watch the same movie. Also no wifi or access to other entertainment"
Pros: "Safely took off, flew, landed. They gave a biscoff instead of bland pretzels"
Cons: "Couldn't understand pilot."
Pros: "Due to my missed connection, American booked me on the earliest flight to Dayton the next morning via United."
Cons: "The United flight's aircraft was cannibalized for another flight as our plane was only slightly more than 1/2 full. Our later aircraft were cannibalized twice more, until we finally got a spare aircraft after a two hour delay."
Pros: "I had a window seat on the left side of the plane and the scenery flying to Cuzco was amazing."
Cons: "Just another flight where everyone is packed in like Sardines."
Pros: "Assigned seats"
Cons: "They wouldn't allow me to check my bag at the main gate so I had to go through security and check it at the boarding gate. Souvenirs were confiscated because the bag couldn't be check sooner. Then they tagged my bag with the wrong name and destination. It was 48 hours later before I got my bag."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."
Pros: "Love PTO, always efficient."
Pros: "The hostess was friendly and helpful. She made the trip pleasant."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport early, as suggested. The plane was over an hour late in arriving. Then it was announced that there was a maintenance problem and that there would be further delay. An hour later they were still waiting for maintenance to arrive. (I know that Greensboro airport is not O'hare, but it is not Dogpatch,either!) A large airline like AA should adequate personnel. After about two hours they arrived and the word given to us was that it would take about 30 minutes to resolve the problem. Finally, at 5:00 pm the 1:30 pm. flight was cancelled. They put us on a flight leaving 9:25 am the next day, and we were on our own until then. That flight left on time, and my comment about the hostess was, of course about that flight. I will consider all of the other options available before risking flying AA again."
Pros: "With this one I didn't get to pick my seat there was an over weight person searing next to my husband and he could not put down his armrest because she was on his seat they should make them buy 2 seats or buy first class. So that they other person doesn't have to suffer"
Cons: "Make them buy 2 seats or buy a 1st class seat!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats rude crew"
Pros: "The new premiere plus was pretty nice and roomy with recliner feature and big personal screen. I'll try this again."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived almost 30 minutes early."
Cons: "The general shrinking size of airplane seats is ridiculous. And one of the restrooms was not locking properly."
Pros: "Thankful for infight entertainment and wifi"
Cons: "United flight attendants (not former continental) really need attitude overhauls. Customer Service is your job, stop acting as though assisting passengers is an inconvenience to you."
Pros: "Quick and smooth"
Cons: "We were asked to be at the airport 8hrs ahead of time, so we arrived 3am. United desk workers arrived at 4am."
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "The plane was clean, airy, comfortable, and not overbooked. The flight attendants treated me very well. Boarding was easy and the gate agent was extra pleasant."
Cons: "The flight attendants were downright rude to some of the other passengers, the ticketing agent had a nasty attitude and made for a very poor "first contact" experience with the airline. The front desk agents at the United Club in EWR were aggressively officious with a lot of the guests that day as well. Overall, customer service was very poor, even though the attendant on the flight were quite nice to me and gave me great service."
Pros: "Economy class is super cramped. One of the flight attendants was unpleasant."
Pros: "Staff seemed efficient"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, long delay (due to weather)"
Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."
Pros: "First class was fine - nothing too special"
Cons: "delay too long"
Cons: "Flight attendant was really not very nice at all. I felt like I was in trouble for even taking the flight. 'Move your feet. Bags have to be moved under seat. I need to see your seat belts.' She was curt, unfriendly & really made me upset with her bad attitude. Maybe she was having a bad day but I paid good hard earned money for my trip. I at least deserved courteousy & mutual respect."
Pros: "The hospitality of the crew."
Cons: "The amount of snacks that were served."
Pros: "Great price and comfortable seating. Also friendly staff"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Now that you asked - the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The snack was adequate but I don't think very healthy. I didn't eat it on the second flight. Not sure what - the plane - wind patterns - pilot - but it was a pretty rocky flight from RDU to DEN. You should give NA as an option cause I didn't use the entertainment"
Pros: "Excelent services and good customer services"
Pros: "Everything went how it should."
Pros: "Can't usually go wrong, 1st flight of the day!"
Pros: "Good leg room. The snack was good - a waffle cookie. Crew was cheerful. Plane was clean."
Pros: "friendly crew. speedy, reliable flight"
Cons: "insufficient overhead storage. could not accommodate the one carry-on and one personal item room for all passengers."
Pros: "I liked the entire flying experience. It was ideal. Best part to me was the pre check and not having to go thru the line. Flight left early, arrived early, I had a middle seat and it was comfortable."
Pros: "The free programming on your personal device"
Cons: "Drink (Alcohol) options could be better"
Pros: "No surprises."
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "Even though the flight was delayed on departure, it did not cause a delayed arrival. The crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy seating. My knees touched the back of the next row making a very uncomfortable 5 1/2 hours. I think it is ridiculous to have to pay additional fee (up to $99) for extra legroom. I think it is called "premier economy" seating."
Pros: "this flight was only an hour long but it was enjoyable. made it home earlier which is always great. I like having only two seats on each side rather than 3."
Cons: "as short as the flight was, there were a few disturbances. first, the two kids behind me were off the wall. it wasn't a baby crying, they had to be 5 and 7 just screaming and being so loud when their parents just laughed. at 8pm It would have been nice for a crew to quiet them down. second, there was a disturbance by a woman who had to be escorted off the plane which caused us to sit not knowing anything going on for the extra 20 minutes on the runway. I'm so glad they got her off for our safety but we were in the dark about the situation. And United, you need to up your snacks."
Pros: "All was very good"
Cons: ". Before boarding they said flight was full and there wouldn't be enough room in overhead compartment, so I checked in my carry all. After landing I expected to pick it up as we exited the plane and was told it was on the carousel ."
Pros: "Efficient Boarding"
Cons: "No in seat Video. Free entertainment promised did not work on my laptop."
Pros: "The service and that i could sleep"
Cons: "Gates where too far away in Newark"
Pros: "The plane was on time the crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Pros: "No drama. Everything on time. Crews were great."
Cons: "Seats cramped but I'm 6'7" so I should have put more effort into getting a bulkhead or emergency exit seat. My fault."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Short flight , every thing was good f"
Cons: "Flight was likeable short flight"
Pros: "Friendlier attendance."
Cons: "Small glasses of water were offered very infrequently. Needed much much more"
Pros: "Got there."
Cons: "Small, cramped seating. Outdoor jetway upon arrival."
Cons: "The area around me was very dirty. Made me a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "We were well compensated for a traveling fiasco. Our plane died in Newark. Our new plane wasn't big enough for 12 of us. It was a pretty crummy to spend Easter Sunday at the airport while our entire family celebrated the holiday. I do really appreciate the travel certificates we received for our trouble."
Cons: "As I stated above, we were stuck at the airport for the duration of Easter Sunday. We were supposed to be home by 1:30pm. Kind of a bummer to have wasted the entire holiday; but I guess that's what you get for traveling on holidays."
Cons: "I paid the 25.00 for my small bag which could have easily been a carry on, but I had a purse and small carry bag. I felt that WAY too many folks had backpack and two small carry ones, but by bringing them to the gate - the announcement was made its a full flight so you can check your bag for FREE! Next time, I will not follow the rules and just simply check at gate?? That is message loud and clear from your gate folks."
Pros: "Nice Flight Crew"
Cons: "There was no leg room what so ever! I am 6 foot tall and around 275 pounds. The seats were made for children, not made for an adult. My seat was so uncomfortable my legs actually went numb, mainly for the fact that I couldn’t move because of how tight the seats were. I have flown many times and this was by far the most uncomfortable flight ever! I will never fly again if this is how planes are going to be."
Pros: "The whole experience was great, plenty of room in the seats and leg room. Fun flight"
Cons: "It was all good . Can't say the same for the flight from Huston to Seattle"
Pros: "After having worked Monday 10 am until 7 pm AND then10 pm to4 am i was exhausted boarding a 6:50 am flight. Needless to say i was asleep before we left the runway. No-one bothered me, and I slept the entire flight. Didn't wake up until we landed in Newark and the tires hit the runway. Thanks United!! I'll def be utilizing your airlines again!!"
Pros: "Plane was very clean and seats were comfy"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and no snacks were handed out."
Pros: "RDU to EWR was fine, but the return flight was way oversold, and we didn't even get seat assignments until it was time to board. I purchased our tickets months ago, checked in 24 hrs before, and did not check bags, but we still had to stand online and keep reminding the gate agents that we did not have seats and that my three year-old had a car seat that needed to go in a window seat. Once on board, the first clas flight attendant was awesome! She helped us fix a seating nightmare (agent had given my 3 y/o a seat by himself) and came back to coach during the flight to give my son some wings and to just check on us. She and our safe arrival are the only aspects of the entire experience that deserve any stars whatsoever."
Pros: "Everything was on time and adequate. That seems to be the standard for a great flight these days."
Cons: "No pretzels or peanuts."
Cons: "A lady on the plane threw up 5 plus times. The vomet got me and other passengers. The flight crew did not clean it up and was very rude. We I complained I was told " Who do I think I am" I responded I am a paying passenger. I am very disappointed in United the way this matter was handled and the nonprofessional attitude of the flight crew. This is a very concerning due to the unsanitary and health risks involved. United should look into this ."
Cons: "no food< no entertainment, crying babies, why can some flights be for adults only?"
Pros: "Smooth Flight"
Cons: "No movies nor Internet"
Pros: "It was a short flight."
