Pros: "Nice attendants was the only thing good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was very late causing problems for connection. Forced to check carryon due to poor storage. Seat instruction were in Spanish. Magazine was in Spanish. This is America and can’t it be in English."
Cons: "Bathroom broken. Broken plane. Stuck on runway with me bathroom and no food or drink for 2 hours before we took off."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was comfortable and clean."
Cons: "Not more room, just room in general"
Pros: "On this flight was a female flight attendant who anticipated my every need. I wasn’t flying first class, but still, she went out of her way to treat me very well. Her personality and hospitality made my flight relaxing, made me feel loved and appreciated, and the flight felt like I was already home"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no apparent reason."
Cons: "The flight was canceled; why allow booking for a flight you plan to cancel. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."
Pros: "The coffee was hot?"
Cons: "Communication was awful. Make flight attendant had less personality than a dusty brick. Idiot behind me was leaning on my seat so I couldn’t recline. It was just probably one of the worst experiences I’ve had flying."
Pros: "yes thank you"
Cons: "all vary good"
Cons: "Leave on time. My round trip had 3 legs to it and 3 of the 4 flights were late!!!"
Cons: "Very cold temperature in the cabin both flights, could have been warmer. Wore hooded packable jacket and gloves and was still cold"
Cons: "Waited one hour and 50 minutes for my luggage. The ENTIRE flight had to wait 1 hour and 50 minutes for our bags to come in on the carousel. There were no apologies or explanations or compensation offered for our wait. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean...had just been renovated"
Cons: "I can’t believe therebwere no flights from MIA to RDU from 11:30 to 4:30 :(. (Original flight was a 3.5 hour layover and that was bad emough)...and then it was changed to this flight:("
Pros: "Food and entertainment were great"
Cons: "wish there was more legroom"
Cons: "It would’ve been nice if we made it to fort Meyers!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "I ended up renting a car at my expense to drive the last 6 hours. AA didn't care, actually I think they were happy."
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Pros: "Leaving that airplane 8 hours after expected."
Cons: "The fact that I was delayed twice, given false information, had to wait to board because a flight attendant was late for her shift and then had to run from terminal to terminal to find my flight on my own because no representative could help me or show up."
Pros: "Best landing I’ve experienced recently!"
Cons: "Aircraft issues, late on take off, a gate change, but the ticket against kept us informed"
Pros: "How nice the landing was. And how really sort it was"
Pros: "Flight attendant was great; talkative, funny, entertaining."
Cons: "Inclement weather"
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Pros: "Great flat beds, entertainment, noise cancelling headphones. Awesome 3 course meal."
Cons: "Could have made the bar area more exciting ... as Virgin Atlantic bars do."
Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."
Pros: "Competent crew; flight arrived on time with my luggage."
Cons: "Plane was jammed full; so much so that even passengers like me, who paid to check one of my bags, still had to put my one carry-on under the seat in front of me instead of in an overhead compartment. I expected some legroom because I paid to check my bag. Unfortunately because of American Airlines I had next to no legroom. I'll be avoiding AA where possible on all of my future travels."

Pros: "Respesv your promise for the bording time"
Cons: "When the crew bothering me"
Pros: "I know AA and Alask are same company but I bought Alaska ariline ticket and everything I need to deal with is AA. It's too confusing."

Cons: "There was just ONE lady trying to check all the passengers in. Obviously, it was complicated for her since no other people tried to help her registrate lots of passengers. We could have lost our connection flight, if she hadn’t made it on time. This happened in Panama."
Cons: "You didn't get my bags to airport on time and so I missed my connecting flight which was 90 minutes after my previous flight, I have an 8 month old son and you made us spend another 4 hours waiting for a flight."
Cons: "There is not food and not entertaiment"
Cons: "There’s non food!"

Cons: "45 minutes Delayed departure. Pretzels and drinks were only provided in a 3 1/2 hour flight..."

Cons: "We should be able to watch a movies without having to pay for internet or the movie what else are they gonna take away ?"
Pros: "The marvel of flying. Hurling through the air in a metal tubeZ amazing. We got there safe and on time. That’s what I liked about United. Oh and there was a CSR that was helpful in changing to an earlier flight."
Cons: "Plane was dirty. Bathroom disgusting. Crew just trying to get through the work day. Seats too close and REAL uncomfortable. Like sitting on a plastic frame with a piece of fake leather over it. Entertainment was awful. Oh wait, non existent since it was an “out of country” flight so there was no access to movies (that you had to PAY for). Otherwise you got to watch Matthew Perry in some taxi game show over and over and over and over on a monitor in your face that couldn’t be shut off. United is my last choice in airlines. But we did get to the destination safe and on time."
Cons: "No outlets"
Pros: "Short flight"

Cons: "Bad, bad, bad"
Pros: "Boarding to the United, was smoth"
Cons: "Menu; Menu selection was none except for a sandwich. The crew was not friendly at all. Courteous by doing their work, but not friendly and welcoming at all."
Cons: "Somewhat condescending comment from one of the flight attendants when I asked if they had a blanket. She said oh no, we haven't had them for ten years! I wanted to say -- must be just on the larger flights then- as I had just gotten off a United flight from Honolulu to Chicago where there weee plenty of blankets. I just smiled and said ok."

Pros: "Smooth flight, good landing."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable, too small and too close together!"

Cons: "I was very displeased with the boarding process in Panama City. We were moved from the boarding area without explanation and asked to screen our luggage again at the gate. I had to discard a full bottle of water that I purchased after the first security check. It would have been nice to know about this before so that we could consume our water and use the rest room before boarding. Very frustrating!"

Additionally the temperature cycle between ice cold and quite uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "Great movie selection and functionality."
