As soon as we got off our first plane we were directed to American Airline security where they questioned me about my trip and what I did in Spain. Then I was directed to TSA where it took a long time to get through the lines. I got to my gate an hour before take off and they were already boarding. I didn't have a moment to take a bathroom break or grab a drink/snack. But again, this experience was not all that bad because all the positive notes listed above."

Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Cons: "see review headline above"
Pros: "Appreciated the extra legroom and food and drink service, even on a short flight. Crew seemed very friendly."
Cons: "It was way too cold. We shouldn't all be bundling up in scarves and jackets. I've noticed that European airlines manage nut to freeze the passengers, so three must be a way to adjust the standard temperature on planes a but more."
Cons: "It was delayed because of late or no show flight attendants. Thankfully two women who just got done offered to do the flight, so our flight wasn't cancelled."
Cons: "The first class flight attendants were VERY RUDE to the passengers getting on the plane, especially the male flight attendant. While serving drinks, instead of saying things like "pardon me", they would say "move" (as was said directly to me) and get out of the way" (as I herd him say to another passinger). Very disrespectful way to treat a person, let alone a paying customer! Btw...I am a middle class 5' 11" tall college educated male."
Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems."
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight,so even though I had a ticket and was NOT standby, I almost didn't make it on even though there were seats available (after two people forfeited their seats) bc they were worried about over-weighting the plane. Then they packed us like sardines into the back row of the plane."

Pros: "Had more leg room."
Cons: "The delay in the flight. The extended boarding process."

Pros: "Staff was very nice; ice cream snack was most welcome."
Cons: "The sound and/or picture on many tv screens was broken."
Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times. This was for a short Austin-Dallas round trip, where I could have driven in less time than what I spent delayed at the airports. I can only conclude that AA is skimping on maintenance."
Pros: "Ease of access. Hospitality."
Pros: "I fly alot! I have never been on a plane that was so shaky from take off. No wind nothing crazy effecting the pilot. It felt like maybe it was his first flight"
Pros: "The leg room in the emergency isle"

Cons: "In flight entertainment was very spotty and would almost be better if it wasn't available."
Pros: "Comfortable seating Temperature was good Flight crew kept us informed and were friendly when we deplaned Food was good. Nice people at check in"
Cons: "I think the flight attendants were not very friendly. When they were thanked they did not respond at all. I saw one roll her eyes at someone in front of me when turning to head back to the galley They fulfilled my requests quickly but were rather blaaaaah. And one in particular mocked me in front of the other attendants in the galley when I engaged in a little small talk. This particular woman prompted me to take the time to write all of this"
Pros: "Departed early for an early arrival which was pleasant."
Cons: "It was fine, roomie since I had my own seat section to myself"
Pros: "The flight was fast, quiet, and had a friendly crew"

Pros: "The plane was newer and reasonably clean looking."
Cons: "I was on the last row in a window seat. Throughout the entire flight tiny ice pellets kept flying out of the vent system above my head. When I mentioned it to the flight attendant, she just shrugged and said "it's just the air conditioner ", like tough luck. That was the only time I saw the attendant. No drinks, no snacks. I guess she didn't have time for the last 4 rows of seats, although the flight was 1 1/2 hours long."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Smallest in-seat TV I've had in 10 years. Audio for movies was blurred between 2 different movies on different channels, making it impossible to watch a movie on this long haul flight."
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. Total of 4 hours delayed."
Pros: "The young ladies who booked hotel after flight was cancelled and worked to get ne on a different flight closer to my interview was great."
Cons: "3-4 delays. Boarded the flight and then told we did not make the cut off time and pilot could not legally fly!!!!!! The stewards was NOT nice at all. The way she scolded a man for changing seats was embarrassing. I was utterly disgusted. Tgeybdud not explain the sense of urgency needed when boarding. Passengers would have moved faster."

Cons: "The plane was filthy and crew was not very helpful."
Pros: "Even though this was a smaller plane, the seats were roomier"
Pros: "Courteous attendant. Light snack provided were enjoyable."
Pros: "the fact that I could pay for more comfort with an upgrade"
Cons: "When the crew moved a baby, Mom, and Dad to the upgraded seats for free...And the baby cried the entire flight. Not the baby or parents fault...The crew member did take paying upgrades into consideration. I should get my money bac"
Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Cons: "Didn't get in until 3am"
Pros: "The first plane had enough leg room"
Cons: "That the plane needed to be changed due to something being wrong with it. On our flight from cancun, Mexico to SFO we had to stop in Houston to change planes. One of the guys working at the security check point was very mean, raising his voice to people, grabbing their and also my stuff out of their hands, some of my stuff fell on the floor and got stuck in the rolling thingies. I hope I found all of it, not sure. I'm not sure how this happened, shouldn't planes be checked thoroughly before heading out!?!? This all is a big mess and very upsetting (literally just cried for 20 minutes). Sincerely, Sabrina Jungclaus S.firstname.lastname@example.org"
Pros: "Excellent personnel, friendly and efficient."
Cons: "I was sitting in the boarding area and it was a quiet space, but I didn't hear the boarding announcement. I did get up when I saw that others were but meanwhile still didn't hear continuing announcements. Thank goodness for the excellent boarding sign which noted what zone was boarding."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "On LAX tarmac for 40 min. Food awful"

Cons: "•Security was very weird and aggressive towards me. I was "acting suspiciously"...it was my first flight alone and I was confused on where to go •Sat on runway for 30 mins after we landed •Super small plane, barely any room to walk on/off plane"
Pros: "It got to me to Atlanta fine. But going back to Newark was a nightmare."
Cons: "When I checked in at Newark, I upgraded my seat from 22 B to 7B for $55. I also paid $25 for my small piece of luggage. I was told there may be a lot of suitcases and it was better to check it. When on the plane, a stewardess came up to me and asked to see my boarding pass (which was scanned when I got onto the plane.) I gave it to her and she never returned it to me. I get an EMAIL while in Atlanta, saying my seat on the flight was canceled because I was a NO SHOW on the 27th to go down to Atlanta. I had the receipt of my seat upgrade, my receipt for the checked luggage, and the tag on the luggage. I called United who said I wasn't on the plane. After a long conversation, she said she fixed it. I get to the Atlanta airport on 10/31, and I was not in the system. I had to get a supervisor and they said my seat was gone and I may not be able to get back to NJ that day. After the agent called United Headquarters, they finally got me on the plane. I was told once again I should check my luggage and shelled out another $25. I then get to the gate, and the agent at the gate was asking for 10-20 people to check their luggage for FREE. That was it for me. I will not fly United again, and have already requested that my Executive Admin's not use United and use other airlines when they book business trips because I would hate for anyone to have to go through what I did. I am 44, have been flying since I was 5, and have never had anything like this happen and don't want it to happen to anyone else I know. I was disgusted by the whole situation."
Pros: "Not sure there was anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5.5 hours. Lost my luggage."
Cons: "It was delayed"
Pros: "Wick & on the!"
Cons: "The one tee member kept repeating things that had been said on the intercom & then announced the wrong time when we landed. She seemed quite distracted."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly"
Cons: "Tried to get assistance at the United desk where my gate was located at and they could not answer any of my questions and would not assist me or many others who had the same issues."
Pros: "The cabins was remarkably clean and the pilot on the second leg was very entertaining, pointing out landmarks."
Cons: "The video selection on the second leg."
Pros: "Crew was personable. Free wifi entertainment with a good selection of movies broken down by genres as well as Satillite style radio. Plenty of leg and shoulder room: I'm 6'4" & weigh 280 with a 38" waist, so I notice these things"
Cons: "Snack was only a single mouthful of pretzels (note size comment above)."
Pros: "Boarding was ok"
Cons: "I was one of the last to broad the aircraft and found that my seat was given to another customer. I was asked by the flight attendant if I could seat all the way in the back by the restrooms. I was not happy with this at all but could live with it. Once we landed I waited on my bags at baggage claim. Found that my luggage had been damaged."
Cons: "We were delayed which happens. That alone isn't a big deal. However, we sat on a runway for over 40 minutes without an update. Then we were told it will be 15 minutes and we returned to a terminal. Zero additional updates for about 50 minutes later. Crew or captain could at least kept us updated so we knew. Very poor service. Crew was friendly and good during the flight"
Pros: "There was a medical emergency on board and the crew, especially the African American stewardess is to be commended for her (their) responsiveness. The flight was pleasant, however I could not give an excellent rating. To give an excellent rating would meant his flight or airline stood out above all others."
