Cons: "I’ve never flown American Airlines and the flight was on time."

Cons: "As usual with PHL, lots of delays and issues. Had to switch planes after delayed boarding for a SECOND maintenance issue. After arriving at AVP, I noticed that both my valeted carry-on and my checked-in suitcase were drenched. My bags were clearly mishandled, and all of my clothing and devices are now wet. Beyond disappointed."
Pros: "I was in first class thanks to an upgrade. The flight attendant was very nice. But the amenities are total garbage - no seatback in-flight entertainment, no power."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment except on your own device. No power, ensuring your device will die on a long flight. The old US Airways fleet from the Northeast is awful."
Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Food was better than expected, entertainment options were good."

Cons: "super delayed, then delayed more on tarmac due to OVERVfueling."
Pros: "I got there on time and they didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "The planes are too cramped, costs are too high, staff just love pointing out a carry on isn't a carry on even though it's sold as one and fits in every other airline's definition of one. Boarding process is ridiculous."
Cons: "Yes Old planes again. No charging ports no entertainment. The crew was nice but the whole experience of this trip was awful."
Pros: "Flight was delayed then cancelled. No explanation, apologies, or provision for accommodation was made or offered!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seats were comfortable, the lav was large enough to turn around in, and we arrived in plenty of time to catch our train out of Frankfurt."
Cons: "The movie selection didn't have anything interesting."
Pros: "It was a small plane so the crew pulled larger totes and packed them separately. It worked very efficiently given the circumstances."

Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "I am not comfortable flying so for me, flying makes me nervous"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Paid extra for seat and I don't see why. It wasn't any better than lower priced seats. American boarding process is unnecessarily complicated. Board from the back forward like Alaska does."
Cons: "After flying from Denver to Philly, I had anticipated an hour and a half layover. First email came speaking of a delay, then second, then about five emails later American Airlines notified me that there will be a 4 hour delay. To get from Philly to avoca on a flight is half an hour. On a bus, its two hours. If an airline knows there will be a four hour delay, how do you not provide that service? I watched plent of other flights go to AVP and even to Allentown, no one could offer one of those options to me? Cold, compressed and miserable experience."
Pros: "it was ok"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat but had to sit in different spot. Set in isle seat"
Pros: "Great crew on Sacto flight. More comfortable than Phoenix flight because not full."
Cons: "Had to wait for crew delayed by weather. No gate when we got to SMF. Luggage took way too long to come off. Lots of turbulence - not your fault - but I HATE it."
Cons: "The sound did not work in my assigned seat. I could not watch any movies or partipate in any games."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."
Pros: "no problems."
Pros: "We were able to board first. The round trip flight was overall amazing. American Airlines is awesome when it comes to active duty flying. When try let him board early and took his luggage they also did the same for me as his wife and it was a great experience to know they care for both of us."
Cons: "I didn't like the lady we sat next to! But you can't help that. So you all did amazing!"
Pros: "Either BA or American Airlines didn't know that We got switched by BA TO AN EARLIER FLIGHT TO JFK!. When we arrived in PIT we almost missed our flight to JFK. The American desk agent at check in had to walk us thru security because of this. OTHERWISE EVERYTHING ELSE WAS OK."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Crew announcements are too loud! What is that all about?"
Cons: "In seat entertainment"
Pros: "Hot tea to warm me up. Friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew ok seat to small"
Cons: "Seat size"
Pros: "United canceled this flight."
Cons: "If United didn't cancel this flight and then rudely answer questions about a full refund."
Cons: "Less crowded, with better two-bag carryons enforcement forces coach and more latitude for First Class."
Pros: "Kind, attentive crew who were very professional"
Cons: "The armrest control for the TV embedded in the seat in front of me from Pittsburgh to Denver didn't work, so I was forced to watch sports-ball while trying to read a book/work on my laptop. There's so little space between seats that it felt like an intrusion into my personal space."
Pros: "Meh. Once we took off it was fine."
Cons: "It was almost 6 hours late. Performed brilliantly like a classic United delay updated in 30 minute increments? Could have taken the next two flights and left earlier. Could have driven and got there earlier. Luckily we were able to get three really crappy seats on a later connection to Frankfurt"
Cons: "Direct flight"
Pros: "The crew was very good and the seats were also fine"
Pros: "Meals were decent."
Pros: "Delayed but we arrived almost on time"
Cons: "Terrible that United charges for Carry on bags!!! Most airlines don’t do that but this is almost getting like flying in other low cost airlines. The price was not super competitive and on top they give you mediocre Seats, they split your family members just to push you to pay for the upgrades."
Cons: "Gate crew was grumpy. Treated passengers as children"
Pros: "Boarded a little early and everything was moved along smoothly and efficiently. Quick and painless. Very smooth landing."
Pros: "Early morning departures are the best and the crew and boarding staff were fantastic"
Cons: "Small seat space"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "whereupon it printed a boarding pass and luggage tag to Houston for a previous customer who had apparently started but not finished checking in. Now I wonder if United will actually charge my credit card for his flight?"
Pros: "I liked the staff at united in Pittsburgh who helped solve the real mess with my reservation"
Cons: "I did not like having my flight to Düsseldorf changed to flight to Frankfurt without being told of the change. That flight was late so I missed my connection to GVA- Frankfurt is a dreadful airport"
Pros: "leg room was great, i was treated with respect everyone did a good job, from the people at the gate to the pilot and stewards."
Cons: "had to peice together the flight, would have liked to have gotten all wiith one purchase"
Pros: "Smooth flight, kind of cramped but overall not bad."
Cons: "Snacks only available for purchase, cramped seats with limited room."
Cons: "Delay in departing Pittsburgh and also in landing in Newark. Boarding in Newark was put in a corner and United personal at the alternate counter was not polite. Delay landing in Venice and apparently at higher speed than normal, which created alarm at the firefighting statin in Marco Polo's airport."
Pros: "Clean, New airplane, roomy seats. No complaints!"
Cons: "There was a gate change and I did not receive notification. There was no email, text or app change nor was it announced over the loud speaker. I had to get a hotel for the night and I'm flying standby in the morning."
Cons: "I don't have a problem with a flight being delayed for any reason. That is simply one of the hazards of flying. However, the PIT->ORD flight was delayed multiple times for unknown reasons. If the airline would have given a realistic timetable, customers could have managed their time much easier. Instead, United Airlines kept delaying takeoff for 15-20 minutes, multiple times. When they finally get the customers into the boarding process, they act like they're doing you a favor. Poorly managed, customers manipulated."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Everything great"
Cons: "the wifi connection did not work."
Cons: "Not many updates, very delayed, no drinks given out. Crew very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough legroom for someone 6'5"."
Pros: "On time good service very clean"
Cons: "We had to wait over two hoirs for them to het us a plane. They allowed United Staff members to dead head to Scranton amd bumped paying costomers. They flight attended stopped her speech to make a mother keep her infant quiet. The The agent at the gate continued to give false information on the delays."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic."
Cons: "The cramped space"
Pros: "2 hrs late!"
Pros: "Leaving and arriving on time Comfortable head rest Option to watch tv for free"
Cons: "Inefficient boarding process led to confusing lines at the gate and slow movement on the plane."
Pros: "That small propeller plane was an exciting experience!"
Pros: "After boarding late, e erroneous finally got seated. Then announcement that due to weather delays (snow flurries) Newark, we were delayed and had to deplane! So, everyone gets off, slowly. Long story short we were late by about just an hour. The crew, the plane were fine, just tough to have to spend so much time at the airport sitting around and then to be delayed ( on, off and on again) is what made it a just ok trip."
Cons: "See above!"
Cons: "My father is 89 and our whole family went to see him off. My husband, 3 children and myself. When I went to the ticket gate to check him in, the ladies did not issue a family pass to us. They said only 1 member of our family can go with him to wheel him to the gate. So my husband went since my father had 2 carry on luggage plus he wheeled my father. So the ladies were not very understanding. At that age I do hope he makes it back in 6 months for us all to see him again! We've been issued passes before and their only excuse was it was busy which it was not at all, no lines anywhere."
Cons: "You will be seeing a formal compliant and expect a refund. We will not be using Kayak again."
Pros: "Economy+ seats were very nice. The stroopwaffel snack beats Delta hands down. Check-in was smooth and we had no hiccups."
Cons: "The boarding lines were not clearly delineated. It seemed like there were gate check offers, but audio systems at the gate were not very coherent. Paying for Direct-TV is so-so."
Cons: "Wifi should be free"
Pros: "The experience overall was good. Loved having the plug outlet."
Cons: "Wish I could have had the entertainment on the app."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Lining up is about getting overhead space. It gets brutal and awful atmosphere."
Cons: "Recent airline corporation consolidation has greatly reduced consumer choice. The surviving major airlines, in their effort to cut costs, sacrifice quality control and assurance. Pittsburgh's status as "no longer a major hub" was on full display here. United needed to have customer service agents available on site, but they did not. The review could easily turn into an essay on United's complete failure (ask the remaining passengers who were supposed to be on the PIT-IAD), but such a review would not change the state of affairs in the airline industry. I will be contacting United reps to lodge an official complaint."
Cons: "When I passed a crew member and asked him where to put my bag because there was no more space in the overhead compartments, he replied with a snarky and cocky attitude that was not appreciated in the least."
Pros: "Seating is so close you can count the hairs on the passenger in front of you. Tray is too close to you and uncomfortable to even eat or drink anything. Overseas and international seating needs to be larger than short domestic flights."
Cons: "Seating was terribly close, too close for comfort."
Pros: "Nothing. I didn't take off yet. The flight was cancelled. I got 5 hrs sleep and had to be back at the airport, so I can have the longest day ever, but I guess that doesn't matter, because nobody does anything except shuffle you along"
Pros: "Pittsburgh International Airport's wheelchair service was excellent (provided separate from United Airlines)."
Cons: "I was traveling for the first time in crutches. As soon as I approached the check-in counter, the lady at the counter asked me rudely "Are you checking in any luggage?". I first told her that I requested assistance getting to the gate and asked if it would be by a wheelchair or a cart. She didn't answer the question, and repeated the same question. Since I had one carry-on size bag, I asked if I need to check it in, or if I can bring it with me when they help me get to the gate. To which she replied in a very irritated tone, "I'm asking you if you need to check it in! Can you bring the bag on-board and put it away in the overhead bin YOURSELF WITHOUT ANY HELP?", hinting that no one will provide any help... At this point, I went ahead and checked in my bag. Thank God the wheelchair service is provided by a separate vendor, because he was wonderful and helpful. While we waited to board, the flight was delayed a few times. I could not hear the announcement from where I was sitting, but I noticed people started to make a line by the central info counter. 4:42pm, I received the cancellation notice via email. Because of my injury, I was unable to wait in line for long, so I chose to sit and wait next to the counter, until the line got shorter. 1 hour later, the line was growing even longer. 6pm, I re-booked a new flight for the next day via iPhone app, however, it was still showing the old boarding pass that I was automatically re-booked for. I still had to talk to someone from United to confirm, also to ask for wheelchair to get back to the main building, so I continued to wait. At one point, one of the United employees moved to the side counter to make a call re: another flight that arrived. I went and stood right in front of her and said "Excuse me, I have a quick question about wheelchair service". She looked at me right in my eyes, but she started talking to the other person on the phone. After she hung up, she ignored me and went back to the center counter, leaving me confused as to what just happened... At this point, I did not even want to make another attempt to ask for help. 7:20pm, the line went down to 3 people; a gentleman with a bad knee, another gentleman with a bad leg and myself on crutches... Am I the only one to think there is something wrong with this picture? 7:40pm, I was finally on the way back to the main building with a wheelchair service, which by the way is run by a group of amazing people. I am not complaining about the delays and cancellations. I understand it happens. I am not expecting that someone like me with temporary disability automatically receives first place in line. I do, however, wish United was more aware of some people who are in need of assistance, while being fair to other passengers. I cannot imagine how difficult it is for people with disabilities to travel with United Airlines."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Twin prop was a bit bumpy would have preferred jet service. I will make sure to inquire the next time"
Pros: "I sat in exit row. Since I am tall , I enjoyed having leg room Each seat had a screen and Wi Fi availability."
Cons: "The lack of air conditioning in the economy section. Noticeably cooler in the front an middle section of the plane. Rear of plane warm. The less you pay the less comfort a customer receive? Plane fares are expensive for everyone. Even those who buy economy should ride with comfortable seating and temperature."
Cons: "Customer service would not let me take flight home from reservation and only resolution was an additional 200 fee plus the price difference in cost of ticket There is no logical reason why the airline would attempt to charge additional fees in this circumstance as my first leg I allowed an open seat for standby passengers which benefited United monetarily should this have been a non rev passenger and essentially the cost I paid for round trip I was only asking to use for one way due to emergency circumstances. I strongly suggest having a valid reason outside of taking advantage of people by overcharging because the customer is at the airlines mercy. Simply wrong!"
