American Airlines customer service was extremely poor. They canceled our flights multiple times. Then put us on standby trying to get on flights instead of booking us on a confirmed flight to get us home. So flight after flight we kept our hopes up just to be disappointed and stuck from a connecting flight. We had never been to Dallas so we were sleeping on the floor at the airport waiting to get home.
Pros: "I like American Airlines in general."
Cons: "I noticed there was a disagreement/issue between a passenger and the aircrew, but it was handled quickly when the passenger just left. I understand there are some issues sometimes, but I noticed attitude from three of the flight attendants during the flight. There were three teens in the back that kept rambling about how all planes have bombs, everyone there was turbulence we could go into a spiral, the plane engines could blow up, etc. It was clearly making passengers uncomfortable because they kept turning around and one lady even yelled at them. I'm honestly shocked the flight crew never said anything to them. I wasn't too worried, except that they ruined any chance to get some rest."
Cons: "snacks provided"
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: "My ticket did not allow me to use my status to upgrade. Never buying through Kayak again."
Pros: "Fast and easy flight"
Cons: "It’s was very good flight"
Pros: "The ground crew worked really hard to get us going."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."
Cons: "Tried to cancel the flight because of an emergency but American only wants money."
Pros: "Lots of space"
Cons: "Better movie selections They lost one of our bags :("
Pros: "The crew was great and provided a quiet environment for the red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be reevaluated. Perhaps the plane should be boarded from the rear to the front or from window to aisle seat. These suggestions would streamline the boarding process."
Pros: "Nice crew. Newer comfy seats"
Pros: "The crew was nice. The food was pretty good. They were generous with the wine pours. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The legroom wasn't great on the flight from Amsterdam to Dallas. My plane from Dallas to Chicago actually had better legroom, which is ironic considering it was a much shorter flight. I would prefer more legroom on the longer trans-Atlantic flight. My baggage in Chicago was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."
Cons: "Actually having a flight to Charlotte. They delayed flight without much warning... actually, they were delaying/cancelling many flights without warning most of the day. Long story short, I had to get a ride to LaGuardia, to catch a different flight. That flight got delayed when boarding"
Cons: "Potentially of hiccups and things outside of AA control. Better, more comfortable seats would be nice."
Pros: "Checking in with my Mum who needs assistance was excellent."
Cons: "Lack of Entertainment."
Pros: "Puntual, connexion gates very closed,"
Cons: "I need to paid 100$ or more to have a seat"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "My belongings stolen"
Cons: "Didn’t like how old the plane was. Didn’t have any entertainment, and food was bad. Seats were not very comfortable and not much leg room."
Pros: "How fast it was"
Cons: "No tv"
Cons: "Cabin was like an icebox. People were wrapping up in sweaters and jackets. Many raised hands observed attempting to close the overhead vents. Multiple complaints to flight crew yielded a minor improvement but it was still on comfortably cool."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Older aircraft. No electrical outlets. Arm rests did not stay up. Entertainment only on AA app on personal device."
Cons: "Worst flight with AA so far, service is getting worst and worst"
Pros: "The flight left on time, there wasn't a lot of fuss about overhead space and we arrived early."
Cons: "They didn't offer any snacks...no pretzels or cookies."
Pros: "Staff was courteous. Plane was clean."
Cons: "It was a very grueling trip. Plane left Rome at 9:15a but that meant getting there at 7:15a. Plane was kept dark even though it was daylight outside. Staff was courteous but did not particularly demonstrate awareness of the strain on the travelers being cramped for 10+ hours. Plane was so cramped that one could not take a stretch walk down the aisles to alleviate muscle cramp being in same position for 10 hours. My ultimate destination was San Jose, CA, but that entailed a wait at O'Hare from 12:30p to 8p. Again, staff uninterested in traveler comfort in these parameters. American felt okay to delay my last leg from Chicago to San Jose an hour later than original scheduled, but offered no compensation for the addition to my discomfort. The switch from British Airways to American was a surprise. New flight numbers, change increased my travel stress. I am only 5'3" and not obese, yet could not really fit in my seat: kept getting bumped by passers by in aisle. Airline uninterested in passenger comfort."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived early"
Cons: "Insufficient supply of Immigration forms"
Pros: "Uneventful and on time"
Pros: "on time and it was comfortable"
Cons: "Beyond pritzzels pls have other snack varieties"
Pros: "Personal TVs with many movie and game options. I also liked that I could view the flight map and timing details. Meals and crew were great too!"
Cons: "Flight departed approximately 5 hours late, excuses given by employees didn't make sense."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "The beauty that is Oregon."
Cons: "The fact that AA had an issue with THEIR plane which caused me to miss an already booked connecting flight. I ended up spending SEVEN hours in Phoenix waiting for a different flight to take me back to Tampa. The least AA could do is offer to pay for my supper or even a snack ANYTHING would've been nice. It's called customer service. I understand things happen that are out of our control, I also understand what it is to help make people whole or happy."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."
Cons: "Baggage claim process way too long. Took 1hr to get off plane."
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Pros: "The only good thing about the flight is that it was nonstop."
Cons: "This four-hour flight had no movie and no seatback entertainment system. It didn't even offer SiriusXM to listen to. How old exactly was this plane?!"
Pros: "Was fairly standard flight. Left in time."
Cons: "Was in last group and had to check carry on."
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Pros: "Lots of space and very accommodating. The updates via email were helpful"
Cons: "You will never change anything. It doesn't matter."
Pros: "They gave us free headphones. The seat back entertainment had a large selection of movies to watch."
Cons: "Similar to my previous review, the crew treated the passengers like we were in the way of their travel plans. There were far too many interruptions during the flight that paused the seat back entertainment. Awesome that you have a credit card, but I don't need to hear about it 100 times during the flight."
Cons: "crowded, tight even in better seat, no wifi entertainment"
Pros: "Nothing. My fight from San Juan to Miami on Friday Oct. 7 was cancelled because of hurricane Matthews, since I didnot buy a roundtrip with AA they did not reimburse or offer me a credit for my returning flight. I contacted AA in two ocassions and both times their personnel were impersonal and even rude to me with the whole situation. I ended up losing $250 because of choosing American Airlines. I will do my best to avoid traveling with American ever again, and I will spread the word, as well. I felt robbed, so unfair."
Pros: "The third set of pilot tried their best to get us a spot to fly out due to bad weather we took off after almost 3 hours"
Cons: "The airline should have at least coordinated their crew arrangement before passenger boarding time, and have to change crew members three times after passengers boarded."
Great and easy flight from Medford to SFO.
Pros: "I was rerouted through SFO pretty seamlessly."
Cons: "My bags were not rerouted with me and are still in Houston. My SFO-AKL flight was delayed so I called in to push back my AKL-ZQN flight to 12:05pm; I received confirmation of that change on the phone, and then received an email a few hours later that I was placed on the 3:40pm flight for some reason. I was then forced to book the 12:05 directly, costing me $250."
Pros: "The beverage service and entertainment was fantastic!"
Cons: "I wish the seats were slightly roomier."
Pros: "The seats are cramped and uncomfortable. They were built for Asians & old people who were smaller. Please understand that the descendants of Norway Germany & Native Americans are large people, we require a larger seat! I was stuffed into this seat so tight that today I will have to see a chirop."
Cons: "The different class of seating was silly to me everyone was at the back of the plane open seats every where but you had to sit in assigned seat"
Cons: "Seating was brutal. Need to do a better job about being upfront about what you book when you get basic economy. Brutal seating and gouged for baggage"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and professional."
Cons: "Pillow for back support would be nice. More Japanese food choices would be nice also."
Pros: "Not much but it was the best price"
Cons: "The space was so tight I couldn't open the lid to my laptop. I had a small personal item, the gate checked my bag, and there was no room for my feet. I just flew Alaska, delta, American,d Lufthansa recently and none of those airlines were as bad. Like a sardine can. I will avoid United at Ll costs."
Cons: "Flight was canceled and there were no other flights that day."
Pros: "Smooth flight into Denver"
Pros: "The Washington terminals were close in distance for transfering and the gate had each group marked off with lanes, versus waiting for the agent to call your group number."
Cons: "On a 3 hour flight, you should get more than pretzels."
Pros: "I no longer expect tolerable so that was nice"
Cons: "No food available by the time I ordered. Entertainment was not working unless I had downloaded the app. Battery life limits entertainment"
Pros: "On time, no issues."
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed by 4 hours due tknsmong in India. I called United ahead of time to tell them I was not able to make my flight and if there was anyway I could get a new ticket. The representative was confident that 40 minutes between my flights at Delhi was enough time to make it despite me reminding her about the time it took to get off the plane, pick up my luggage, get through immigrations and travel to my terminal. She was very wrong. She insisted I call them when I land and that I go to the ticket booth. Little did she know that once I miss my flight my ticket is no longer valid and I was no longer able to enter the airport in India. Once I reached the entrance I was directed to a Untied booth all the way at the end of the terminal and was told to buy a new ticket. There was no United representative at this booth. I waited 3 hours and even called the number posted at the booth. No one picked up and no one came. I had wasted several hours. I ultimately decided to buy a ticket online spending another thousand dollars to get back home when I was told that I would be given a new ticket at the booth by United. But I had to wait another 24 hours outside the airport because I was not allowed in so early prior to my flight. Very unprofessional and unhelpful when I needed it the most."
Cons: "Missed our connection due to a cargo issue"
Pros: "Service is great fly on time"
Pros: "This United flight left on time and arrived to my destination early, which was nice, unlike my last flight."
Cons: "Wi-Fi and “private screen” entertainment through my own devices did not work. Second time it has not worked at all on a United flight. Food was average (meaning bare-bones for complimentary)."
Pros: "There were some great employees but unfortunately one of the team didn't share their personality"
Cons: "There was one employee or steward who just didn't seem to want to be there did his job but compared to the others was not on the same page of the team"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and made up for the small space."
Cons: "The express plane was extremely tight."
Pros: "Boarding was easy and everything was on time."
Cons: "The first class seats I sat in on both flights were so dirty. There was good on the wall next to me food on the overhead area and the backs of the seats. It was disgusting to see how filthy the airline allows the cabin to be. Needless to say I passed on snacks."
Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"
Cons: "I miss my appointment at 1:30"
Pros: "Staff made extra effort for everyone to feel comfortable!!"
Cons: "The walk LOL!! It's a Big Airport!! All staff ready to help thank you!!"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 10 hours and united airlines would do absolutely nothing to accommodate or help out situation in any way"
Cons: "got in super late. missed my shuttle. plans impacted"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working"
Pros: "Stewardess was nice"
Cons: "Delayed, then when we got here no lanes to land. Seats are way to small for normal sized people."
Pros: "The flight was prompt and smooth. Flight crew was nice and welcoming."
Cons: "The seats seemed too tight. Uncomfortable if you're tall."
Cons: "On trip to medford my lugguage got left in san fransisco and was never delivered to me so i went back to airport and it was just sitting there, no one there to give it to me so i had to look for someone to open room so i could get it. Then From medford to san fransisco There was no explanation cancellation, no one at counter for hours to figure out something else, no apology for inconvience, no vouchers for hotel or food since i had to stay at one since flight left so early in am. I had less then 10 mins to get from medford plane to denver plane. Thats running and up 2 flights of stairs and getting to door in nick of time. I missed a day of work and basically unless an emergency i wont fly united again."
Pros: "Every one including the crew was very nice and polite"
Cons: "We left late and my seat was very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Overbooked both my flights and I was a last minute addition to the first flight."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and professional"
Cons: "Like all airlines, need to expand leg room and chair size"
Cons: "I'm usually a patient person, but my flight was supposed to leave at 525am and didn't leave until 730. This was the first flight in the morning. We boarded, waiting 30 minutes on the plane, they told us to get off because there were computer issues. Why wasn't that checked before everybody was boarded? Once we got on the plane we had to wait another 30 minutes for the crew to get someone's luggage from under the plane. Why wasn't that done while the computer was getting fixed? I didn't get to Denver until 1040am missed my flight and didn't get to get on my connection until 500pm. In the meantime I called to get on a different flight at 1, but the guy on the phone didn't actually book me a seat. The gate people weren't very nice."
Cons: "There was a grumpy mail air host. Vegetarian option was offered to everyone and hence none left for reminder of journey"
Pros: "Flight attendants were cordial and helpful"
Cons: "Seating in the last row or rows made deplaning very slow."

Pros: "It was a very well ran flight, both fights were what you would expect from an airline service. Overall satisfied."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Cons: "I arrived in Mexico on Monday, and I've yet to receive my luggage. The representatives keep reassuring me that my luggage is still in Houston and that it will be on the next flight. This is such an overwhelming experience because I don't know what is really going on."
Pros: "The staff are friendly and cordial despite passengers weary of long lines."
Cons: "You should warn travelers,especially in summer, to get to the airport at least 3 hours in advance. The lines for check-in with United Airlines are very long and slow and other check-in points have long lines. The staff are very nice and friendly, however."
Pros: "Got $200 voucher for overbooking"
Pros: "That flight had no entrainment. So it wasn't bad, just not available on that short flight"
Pros: "No screens or entertainment on either of my flights, but the crew was very nice."
