Cons: "Can’t think of anything"

Pros: "From SEA to SAT the pilot (or co-, couldn't tell which one) provided information on what we were flying over (e.g.Mt. Rainier, Columbia River, Salt Flats, corner of New Mexico, etc. ). I LOVE THAT! There was no food or entertainment on this short flight."

Pros: "Love that you recycle and that you care about your reputation"

Cons: "Alaska canceled my flight without notifying or contacting me . I spent over 1000 dollars on flight. Once I rebooked they were rude and would not honor the first class seat I purchased. I kept my moth shut to avoid being yet another victim to the brutality of the way airlines and tsa have been treating travelers."
Pros: "Fast and friendly! The Flight Attendant was very humorous and friendly."
Cons: "No beverage service. I am a nervous flyer and wished I had a cup of water or seven up."
Cons: "We had purchased round trip tickets for our son to come home from college. He was able to get a ride a day earlier as he wanted to surprise us. The night before his return flight he went online to check in, and received a notification his reservation had been cancelled. We called Alaska and were told they had canceled his reservations as he failed to check in for his initial flight. Their policy reflects in the event of this happening they "may" do this, NOT shall. They wanted us to pay an additional $205 for a one way ticket. Hard lesson for my son, he just didn't think about canceling as the seats were paid for, and not understanding why the reservation would be canceled when their service was paid for. We would have thought as we paid for a service Alaska would have at least called or emailed us to check the status of the reservation. they had all of our personal contact information. Again, hard lessen for us all."

Cons: "The Mexico City transfer was weird, and inconvenient. You have to retrieve your luggage, go through Mexican immigration, recheck your bags, go through security again, and the layover was over 4 hours. You pay less, but it winds up being a very long, exhausting trip. I will take a US carrier from Quito to San Francisco, Reno or Vegas next time fir this reason alone."

Pros: "Plain was comfortable."
Cons: "Food again, just a bar full of sugar!"
Pros: "Got home safe"
Cons: "The wait. The landing was rough."
Pros: "The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. The seating is about the same as on every other airline. I was in steerage for the Mexico City - San Jose leg. A lady was seated in my window seat when I boarded, and seemed surprised when I insisted on reclaiming my seat (She had the middle seat). In contrast to Mexico City, the San Jose airport is a model of efficiency. Immigration is rapid, luggage comes out on the carousel in good time, and best of all there is a duty free shop right in the luggage claim area, so it is unnecessary to buy liquor ahead of time."
Cons: "Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once! I speak Spanish, so the following comments are not coloured by language difficulties ... Security staff are unfriendly. While there is supposed to be free wifi in the departure lounge, I couldn't figure out how to use it. A gate agent told me there wasn't any free wifi, all the time standing beside a sign that said there was. I was also singled out for a spot check of my hand luggage right in the jetway. The unfriendly lady doing that search so disarranged my stuff that I couldn't find my Kindle when I got on the plane, so was without my planned reading material."
Cons: "My flight was moved around then cancelled and I didn't know. I also never got a refund for the flight so I really didn't know! Then I got to the airport and said that they canceled my flight but they got me on a new one for the first leg to Mexico City but then there were no flights for my second leg to Cabo"
Pros: "Everything. Everybody very helpful"
Pros: "lucky for us the plane I boarded was also headed to Mexico City. They allowed us to stay on the flight and we made our connecting flight in Mexico City"
Cons: "The entertainment was awesome. Made the flight time go very quickly...Proceso de check in no es de lo mejor, después no tiene servicio de entrenimientos, pero ofrece un refrigerio que otras compañías aéreas no brindan."
Pros: "Un pequeño retraso a la salía de México, sin mayores inconvenientes"
Cons: "I was very upset, because I purchased my baggage and at times of check in it was charged for extra baggage(that I did not have!!) When I questioned the lady at check-in why I was being charged for extra baggage and I did not have extra, she said those were the rules and either I paid or I could not check my bag in, then showed her proof that I had purchased my baggage option online and she stated they don't work with the online policies. That she didn't know why I had purchased my bagged fee online, and still charged me extra. I will NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN!!! She did not even allow me to speak to a manager, she said there was no one above her. Extremely RUDE!!"
Pros: "Headphones, meal, and a charging USB location was provided. Flight attendants were very attentive to us."
Cons: "I didn't like on my way back home the second I walked in I felt nauseated due to the bad odor. Smelled like urine and athlete feet, I was sick to my stomach."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and on time."
Cons: "The temperature was so hot at one point I was getting sick to my stomach. Twenty minutes later I was putting on a jacket."
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"
Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth and arrived more than thirty minutes early."
Cons: "Flight attendants did the basics without showing any enthusiasm for their job or appreciation for the passengers in business class. Food service in business class was uninspiring as there was no element of "international cuisine" on a flight where some dining creativity would have been welcome."
Pros: "My wife and I chose premium economy for the long flight from L.A. to Sydney. I believe it was well worth paying for the differential level of service."
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"

Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, flight was overbooked, and WiFi wasn't working on the plane, so no entertainment at all, as the plane had no screens and we were supposed to use our own devices."
Pros: "The food and the movies!"
Cons: "The air on the plane was stale and I could barely breathe the entire flight. I feel sick and light headed after that one."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "Crew on board was nice."
Cons: "Boarding was very unorganized. I thought families traveling with kids would get priority boarding before main cabin."
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Cons: "My left ear still won’t clear but other than that nothing."
Pros: "Couple of flight attendants were really nice!"
Cons: "Most of flight attendants were rude. No personal touch at all. Felt like they wanna rush and be done with flight asap. Entertainment selection is really poor for 9 hours flight. Expect more new movies and American tv shows. Concerts up to the date would be nice."
Pros: "Appreciated the friendliness of the flight crew, compared to two other international flights I have taken in the past year and a half on other airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seating, as I suppose is the norm on most airlines nowadays. But feels torturous on a long flight. Also, had to pay extra to choose seats. I think that’s outrageous."

Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "Late takoff"
Cons: "Late takeoff"
Pros: "The flight attendant for the back of the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The plane was unbearably hot and stuffy. My row wasn’t offered any snacks (some other rows were). A giant moth flew into my forehead, which was extremely startling. There was no entertainment offered and no power outlets for my phone, which was dead."
Pros: "Nothing Flight was delayed , which made me miss my connecting flight."
Cons: "Mostly the staff who were not friendly at all. Two of them were very arrogant and ignorant. I’m not looking forward to my flight home and I’m thinking of changing airlines. I’ll never travel AA again. Very disappointing."
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "No major delays. Boarding and exiting was smooth. Got assigned a window seat near front Good service."
Cons: "Long flight from CLT to LAX was warm. Not sufficient cooling and airflow."

Cons: "The food is so, so. The seats are extremely narrow"
Pros: "Legroom, interactive lcd screens on seat headrests. Would fly again, affordable as well."
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Pros: "Exceptional service and communication from the in-flight staff. The entire process from check-in to baggage claim was ,seamless and pleasant. I highly recommend AA."
Cons: "Tight seats, return was late missed connection had to spend the night in Charlottte."
Pros: "I liked the overnight trip. I got to sleep. Great crew. Not alot of passengers."
Cons: "Had to pay for snacks and tea."
Pros: "The airplane was new and very spacious. Air hostess were very accommodating. The flight took off and landed on time. Food and snack quality was amazing. Entertainment options were plenty. Restrooms were clean and smelled fresh through the journey."
Cons: "Since my flight was connecting from London to New York we barely had a break even though we were suppose to have a 2.5 hour layover. 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: "New plane and excellent service. The flight was on time and the crew was very servicial."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Pros: "The economy seats were relatively spacious and had a full TV menu and outlet to charge devices."
Cons: "For a red eye they could perhaps ask people to turn off their lights, but it doesn't matter."
Cons: "I've boycott A.A. for 15 years now. The only reason I flew is because I didn't have a choice with my connection flight. They still suck.!"
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Good food-ample space"
Cons: "Tv didnt work for 3+ hours took 4 attendants to restart it."
Pros: "I flew first class. Philadelphia airport is horrendous. I chose to fly first class to avoid lines and make flying by my lonesome go more smoothly. There are no special lines for first class there are absolutely no perks to flying first class out of Philly. The first class flight attendant was rude. They ran out of hot food by the time they got to me so I was served yogurt ... I don't eat yogurt. I waited 40 minutes for my luggage to arrive at baggage claim. The flight to Philadelphia from Tampa was a good experience. They had first class lines. The airport was cleaner. The flight attendant Steve, was kind and professional. I was served a hot lunch. I'm a diabetic and when my blood sugar went low he got me orange juice quickly. I waited maybe 10 minutes for luggage at baggage claim. However with the horrific experience in Philadlephia I may never fly American again. Definitely will never fly out of Philadelphia again. I was told by the woman who I sat next to on the way home that she hates American and usually flys Delta for her business trips."
Cons: "AVOID FLYING OUT OF PHILADELPHIA!!!"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "The crew was unfriendly and pretty much not seen on the flight except for meal service and prior to landing. Drinks were only offered with meal service. The flight was 8+ hours and I was only given a beverage 3 times. Additionally questions were answered almost condescendingly. Perhaps the problem is that our flight from Pittsburgh to Rome was on Canadian Air and they set the bar high in terms of comfort and service."
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"
Cons: "Flight was canceled due to United's mismanagement of crews."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Cons: "One and a half hour delay to get in the plane then we were told to sit on the tarmac for another hour. Pilots had no sense of urgency tying to make up any of the time. Flight attendant was extremely rude and condescending."
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Seat was way too small"
Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "I guess San Francisco ATC (Air Traffic Control) decided the plane couldn’t leave San Fran until way past our take off time. Then it takes two plus hours to get the plane here unload and refuel and rest. So I missed my connecting flight to Redding. Which meant I had to fly to Sacramento. Then I had a pleasant 3 hour drive on I-5 (can you sense my sarcasm?!) didn’t reach my destination until 5 in the FREAKING morning. Around 8 HOURS LATE TO MY DESTINATION"
Pros: "They find an option though TPE as I missed my connection in SFO."
Cons: "Had a middle seat while I need a window to sleep in the plane. Was wasted on arrival."
Pros: "I went to go talk to an employee about my flight boarding without me, when an Edwin Rodriguez of EWR New Jersey United Airlines employee started screaming at me. He told me to “wake up” and go run after my flight then while going after my flight he yells at me to come back. He apologized a few minutes later and then proceeds to yell at me again. My flight was canceled and reset for a later time. I have prior medical conditions that Edwin Rodriguez agitated through consistently harassing me at the help desk and am now in distress. I’m being relocated due to active duty military service and this is how you treat military veterans and their families."
Cons: "Edwin Rodriguez of the EWR airport in New Jersey. If I screamed whenever I didn’t get my way I’d be arrested. I will never fly United Airlines again because of Edwin Rodriguez."
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Pros: "Great captain and crew."
Cons: "I prefer the entertainment on your own device."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."
Pros: "So they lost my bag but where super helpful and nice!"
Pros: "Direct flight - nothing else"
Cons: "This flight is never on time"
Pros: "Flight crew were very helpful."
Cons: "too many people on flights."
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Pros: "Due to technical difficulties, the entire flight received DIRECTV service at no charge."
Cons: "The boarding gate changed without notice and we had to scramble to a new gate. Turbulence over the Rockies added time to the flight."
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Since we were the last ones to arrive at the gate because of our delayed flight they had to check our carry-on baggage with the luggage we didn't have locks and nomally what we carry in that bag are fragile or valuable things. They should at least have plastic gauzes or fragile stickers to put on the bags. I don't know the reason but the flight attendants left about the last 6 rows of passengers without pretzels or drinks. There was no device to view movies. Leg space too tight."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Viajar en United es desastroso. Los asientos son demasiado pequeños, yo mido1.57 metros y no me podía ni mover."
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Cons: "Horrible delays and reboarding and then none of the crew tried to make anything better. My flight attendant practically threw one of the cheap bags of snacks at me"
Pros: "I love that you can fly direct to Pasco now. For years, one had to fly to Seattle and catch a puddle jumper. You're only in the air for about an hour and a half and Pasco has been slowly upgrading their airport. I love how easy it is to visit my family in the Tri-city area now."
Pros: "The staff was really polite and were willig to answer all questions with a smile."
Cons: "The seat I was on could not be reclined. This was most unpleasant because it was an overnight flight. You should earn the clients - even economy passengers - when this seat is the one being assigned to them. I would payed beforehand to get a more comfortable seat if I'd known I was to fly on a no-reclining seat on an overnight flight."
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
Cons: "The seats were so small, with no space between rows that you couldn't even recline. The tv on the seat in front was so close you couldn't watch it. Miserable flight, and I'm only 5'5"."
Pros: "The flight attendant was cheerful."
Cons: "Logistics. Please figure out how to board a plane on time and have a gate available upon arrival. Neither of these happened for this flight."
