Food and wine were of poor quality. Space for improvement!
Boarding was delayed on both flights due to the crew being late. The seats were comfortable even for economy.
Everything went perfectly. Check-in, bag drop, etc. The flight and crew were excellent.
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "There was no WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was great. Love that the soft drinks are still free, unlike some other carriers. More leg room in the plane as well"
Cons: "Delay of 1.5 hours for “fuel” reasons that were sketchy at best. Luckily we were not one of the many that missed connections"
Cons: "Spent more than 500$ in an emergency flight that was delayed ten times"
Pros: "Not too much delay/ wait between flights"
Cons: "snacks ?"
Pros: "Nice big plane, new technology"
Cons: "When landing in LAX we were unloaded far from anything and loaded into buses and taken to the terminal. It was like a weird sci-fi movie LOL."
Pros: "seat was basic. prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen."
Cons: "prefer having tv screens in the seatbacks as opposed to using my tiny phone as a viewing screen. only food available besides pretzel was pay food."
Cons: "did not deliver baggage to Glasgow"
Cons: "Couldn't turn on reading lights the entire 8 hour flight to Hawaii! 8 hour flight and only a wrap to eat. Not even food offered for purchase in the last 7 hours of the flight"
Pros: "Made it to my destination"
Cons: "2-hour delay in the plan after departure from the gate for maintenance. The seats are so small that my knees hit the seat in front of me the entire flight."
Cons: "This plane needs to be retired! It was the most uncomfortable seat I’ve ever had! Also the plane was extremely warm. Like a sweat box or a sauna. Miserable flight. Glad it wasn’t long!"
Pros: "First class for such a short haul."
Cons: "Lack of service."
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather issues then compounded by crew issues. Would have been tolerable if they had been upfront about it instead of doing the one hour delay, then another hour, then another hour ad nauseum. More than 3 hours total."
Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "Time of flight and on time flight"
Cons: "Lack of gluten free snack Cramped knee room"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Touch down was a little rough Small plane"
Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"
Pros: "Absolutely none of it"
Cons: "The entire experience was the worst flying experience of my life"
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding for a busy flight. Efficient, attentive and intuitive cabin crew. Good in-flight entertainment and facilities."
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely cold throughout the duration of the flight. Of all of the long haul airlines I've flown with, I find that American Airlines offers the least leg room."
Pros: "Really like how smooth and easy was to aboard my plane."
Pros: "I am traveling with a friend and our request to seat together was hornored. The crew was fantastic but the seats were cramped. The entertainment was mediocre. I was happy to hear of charging stations, alas, i wasn’t sitting in one of those seats with that option."
Cons: "The crew and the service."
Pros: "Crew does it’s best under miserable conditions. I love a nonstop flight."
Cons: "We were delayed over half an hour due to a broken tray table. Really. A 5 hour flight has no meals available, not even ones you can buy. Water and drinks were brought around once. ONCE in 5 hours. My husband and I were crammed in Middle seats 2 rows apart. And we had to pay extra to get those. Because they charge to check bags everyone brings their carryons on board."
Pros: "Only about 20 people on board did not have follow up connection flights. My flight going to Rome was also delayed by a half an hour. TBH I don't recall being on a AA flight that ever left on schedule."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We had to walk outside to board the plane. My husband has two bad hips and we had to walk up a flight of stairs to board the plane. The plane was extremely small and our sits were located in the rear of the plane. The bathroom had an unpleasant odor."
Cons: "Delay. Old airplane with sewer smell in back. Not a great experience."
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely too hot"
Cons: "I fly this flight every week. In 4 months it has been significantly delayed, usually with mechanical issues all but twice."
Cons: "The electronic screen that shows movies etc. needs to be updated. Some of the functions did not work and those that did work were very difficult to get to work well. Disappointing. Obsolete technology."
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Cons: "Flight cancelled American Airlines aircraft old 30+ years No AC No entertainment"
Pros: "No fees for carryon, like Republic charged on the way out"
Cons: "NO seats available on booking, without paying extra. Never could sit together, even though booked together. Greedy but stupid."
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "snacks and beverages..."
Cons: "Airline had no gates at destination and made us sit on board for an hour after landing. Should have been protactive and found air stairs to disembark instead of forcing passengers stuck on hot plane."
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."
Pros: "Great selection of movies, comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Only one drink service for 5 hours, attendants not friendly or attentive, and it took an eternity--again with AA--for the bags to hit the carousel. Over 30 minutes' wait."
Pros: "Watched an entire season of High Maintenance."
Cons: "Advertisements were a bit much. Also, if everyone is confused about where the spoon is on the ice-cream, maybe you should show them when you hand it out instead of trying to make them feel stupid for asking."
Pros: "Cabin crew (one person) was courteous and professional, but definitely in charge."
Cons: "AA has the same shuttle problem at DCA."
Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."
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: "Flight never happened, can I give 0 stars?"
Cons: "The flight was delayed three times and ultimately cancelled. I got no notification of the cancellation, only found out because I was constantly checking. Ticketing agents in the airport were overwhelmed and ignored most passengers, on the phone they were useless and offered no solution. I was attending a family funeral in the morning and after American offered no options I rented a car (another huge expense) and drove all night to get the my destination."
Pros: "Full flight, so American staff handled the boarding well. Was warned there were no meals on board for economy, so bought meals onboard ."
Cons: "Lack of onboard entertainment for a 5 hour flight. Didn't realize until the end the idea is that you have to pay to get the internet for entertainment now."
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
United airlines ground staff at Indira Gandhi International airport New Delhi didn't let me board the flight. I am a Candian citizen returninv to canada got my covid-19 rt pcr test done less than 72 hours from my flight from newark to toronto as per the regulations of Canadian Government and also the united airlines app, also uploaded all the documentation and were approved by travel ready centre of united airlines app , my wife talk to one of the representatives over the phone in Canada he said the same that I can board the flight and there will be no problem as I had enough time to get my prc test done at Liberty international airport if required by staff at Newark airport, yet the ground staff ignored all this and didn't let me board the flight and told me to catch a direct flight of some other airline. They themselves are not aware of the rules properly. I had to go back soon as my wife and new born son is alone and nobody to take care of them but United airlines gave me this hassle for no reason and have to come back all the way from New Delhi to Chandigarh make fresh arrangements for travel and have to go to dubai and do all the tests over again. I wish I could rate the experience in negative.
Pros: "Crew good. Good tv/ movie choices."

Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Pros: "I did arrive in Boston, eventually."
Cons: "The flight took off approximately 3.5 hours behind schedule and we boarded the flight and waited inside the aircraft for 2.5 hours...why did they do that? The flight attendants were offering water and trying to be as helpful as they could be.... but we're inside the plane, not going anywhere, so not much extra they can do."
Pros: "Great cabin attendant!"
Cons: "Air conditioning on my feet got old."
Cons: "I didn't go on my trip. My course in SF was cancelled and United would n't refund my money or change the dates for my trips because of there basic economy package. They have 3 different economy packages and the economy basic doesn't get refunds and you can't change the flights if needed. It feels like they are banking on increasing there ROI with this basic economy ticket which is 40 -60 dollars cheaper than the next economy package. Intuitively they know people will pick that, but if something comes up the customer is screwed."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and polite."
Cons: "No snack options. Only pretzels. Seat cushion very thin."

Pros: "On time. No damage done."
Cons: "Not allow carry-ons. Big stewardess constantly bumped me on every pass up and down the aisle. Hassle recieving carry-on from gate. Extra small plane equated bumpy ride and poor cabin pressure."
Cons: "Flights were cancelled we missed our earlier flight due to united computer problems. No solution offeeed end up flying to New Orleans had to call a relative 2 hours to come pick us up. Customer service waits were over an hour with 10 computer terminals there and only 2 people working. Trip from hell."

Pros: "Aircraft was newer"
Cons: "A no-frills airline"
Cons: "Room for sitting."

Cons: "Mechanical delay in fargo caused me to miss my connecting flight to Eugene by 5 minutes. Got to Denver airport asked the gate guy to call my connecting flight to see if they could hold the door for me, he said you got 10 mins go. I run 30 gates and the door just closed. I am 25 weeks preg so my running time is slower then normal. Then they rebooked me on a flight that had an additional connect and arrived 4 hours later then expected. By the time I got to my new flight gate- it was delayed so would miss my next connecting flight. Long story short it's 3 hours past when I was suppose to leave and settled for s flight to PDX tonight getting in at midnight. My friend From eugue is picking me up in Portland tomorrow. It has been an unsuccessful flight. Almost cancelled and wMechanical delay in fargo caused me to miss my connecting flight to Eugene by 5 minutes.

Cons: "The doors closed 15 minutes prior to when I expected them to, causing about five of us to miss our flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was broken on the flight. Halfway through the captain apologies over the intercom."
Cons: "Entertainment was broken on the flight. Halfway through the captain apologies over the intercom"
Cons: "No one could get their story straight and actually lied! I was sent a text (I was already at the airport) that the flight would be delayed due to "aircraft maintenance". Not true in the least bit. Then when we finally landed in Denver (nearly every person on that flight missed their connecting flights) we were told the system said the delay was "due to weather". Another lie. Then they announced there would be gate agents to meet us when we got off the plane to assist with connecting flights. First gate agent said "I have no information you have to go to gate 56". The person at gate 56 said "I don't open for another 15 minutes so you have to go to gate 39"! The real story? They made us change gates 5 times in Fargo! The gate attendant was using the "F-bomb"! It wasn't aircraft maintenance or the weather. They couldn't get the walkway to work! In the end, we still left from the original gate and had to walk outside on the tarmac to board the plane. Why didn't they just opt for that to begin with and avoid all the missed flights? My measly voucher isn't nearly enough compensation and if United ever expects me to fly with them again I am expecting a full refund (as other passengers received- I witnessed the manager in Denver authorize a full refund for another passenger but only offered me $50)"
Pros: "The staff and crew were great."
Cons: "I flew round trip to Bangkok from Chicago last year for $460. Why does one way from Fargo N.D. To Green Bay, WI cost $480?! My flight said it was late on the screen (6:40) but actually flew on time. I think a kid missed his flight because of it. My connecting flight in Chicago was way too tight because of a LONG delay waiting to unboard. Had to run, yes run through ORD to get to terminal 2 from 1 within minutes to catch my flight. It was too stressfu and expensive."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "The aircraft was super HOT and the seats were smaller than any plane i have ever been on. there was zero leg room available."
Pros: "Overall ease to get on the plane, the flights were smooth.. and flights crew were friendly"
Cons: "Paying for! Movies. They should be part of the flight so you are more comfortable flying"
Cons: "Too many delays, nothing was offered. Nothing was given or comp; Food, water, bags, seat upgrades, not flying untied again"
Pros: "Nothing to like because the flight was canceled and flights the next day only had standby"
Cons: "Everything! We will try our best to never fly United again. They offered no compensation for our canceled flight and we incurred $400 in additional charges trying to get home a day late!"
Pros: "Great staff and everything on time"
Pros: "Honestly, nothing for this flight. Delayed, rude crew, seat assignment mess up, etc."
Cons: "No food in a previous 4 hour flight, plus being early at gate, plus travel to airport. A lot of time without eating, expensive flights and no food. As a matter of fact only 1 tiny bitty snack for the entire flight. Very uncomfortable plane! Asking to pay for entertainment Direct TV, are you kidding me??? Those tickets are not cheap and you can't provide entertainment? Charging for everything extra is outrageous. Crew was a bit rude. And the people at the counter at the gate -very rude and unhelpful. Flight delayed on Christmas night and no refund for all that time wasted without being with the family. I had seats together with my husband and then seats were removed, asked to see an agent when printed boarding pass and then got separate seats. You are a joke and do not respect the money we pay and prearranged seat assignments. United you are a terrible airline, please strive for better customer service. You charge a lot."
Cons: "Lines, delays, at least the agent I called while in line was helpful."
Pros: "Free entertainment for the 6+ hour flight"
Cons: "Says wifi is available for in flight use except you have to pay $15.99....."
Pros: "Arrived on time. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Passengers for numerous regional flights had to wait in a crowded area before going to our gates in the basement. There was no attendant that I could see to tell us what was going on until 30 minutes or less before departure. I had never seen this arrangement before and was not pleased with it. On board, there was no snack, only a beverage, which I did not want."
Cons: "Prices are expensive for entertainment. No room to be comfortable for economy passengers."
Pros: "Great, friendly crew. Handled switching plane situation quickly"
Cons: "Too cold.... It is no possible to be in this temperature!"
Pros: "Easy boarding with app and boarding pass on phone"
Cons: "Didn't earn United points on my husbands flight even though I booked mine & my husbands flights together"
Cons: "There seem to always be delays on my united flights. This flight was delayed about 30-45 minutes with no major apologies or some type of compensation from them. Even a food voucher or a free alcoholic beverage would've been nice."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty legroom."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "Clean plane, seats and on time performance"
Pros: "The flight attendant worked very hard to keep everyone satisfied as she found seats together for a family of three small children and mother just as the passengers were settling in."
