Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"It was a smooth, uneventful ride. The staff was very friendly. The overhead compartments were a little small for my hiking style backpack, but I made it work."

Pros: "The crew.was so rude, even from the check in process"
Pros: "Crew was fine, outlets were nice"
Cons: "It should be a crime to have a fully packed plane in the middle of covid. It’s also illogical to not serve food but allow people to bring food on, doesn’t make it more covid safe. I will avoid American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."

Pros: "Ended up with a row to myself since flight wasn't full and people were able to move to different seats to provide for social distancing."
Cons: "They could start by not allowing a non-compliant passenger ON THE PLANE. When he was already not compliant in the damn terminal. (Dude didn’t wanna wear a mask) forced the captain to circle back and screw our timing for our connecting flight. You might say, how can we blame AA, well, because they chose to allow him to become a problem and then exasperated it by allowing him in the damn door of the plane. Now we got stuck in Charlotte for the night. Nothing like being late for your Grandma’s funeral. Pathetic AA! PATHETIC!"
Pros: "Short, sweet and great crew."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable. Crew was professional."
Cons: "Loading plane was a little chaotic and the comfortable seat was a little overpriced for the legroom."

Pros: "The crew was friendly indeed."
Cons: "I was really surprised that there was a gate change that made the flight depart from a whole different part of the airport. I was sitting right there and didn't notice it but thankfully I had enough time to get to the different gate."
Cons: "No wifi or entertainment was available. Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "Staff was so kind and helpful."
Cons: "They ran out of a couple of the snacks, not a big problem but note worthy."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. FA's were great."
Cons: "On time performance."
Pros: "Travel time was great"
Pros: "Plane was full. Finding overhead storage was tough. And, we checked luggage. The seat was small, but I had leg room and no one reclined their seat. There are a lot of extras one must pay for. But, the plane was on time and the crew was pleasant..People are accustomed to this treatment. There is no joy left in the flying experience."
Cons: "I did not understand the entertainment system. I read a book."
Pros: "Getting off the plane after 3+ hour flight and 45 mins taxi and waiting for gate"
Cons: "Bought our tickets months ago, 2 travelers , myself and wife. Couldn't seat together. Our baggage ( Small backpack and a hardside roller we bought cause it would fit under the seat. Guess what I know they changed the size of the underseat bag . We had it checked going to PHX ,no issue on the way back $50. I'm done with American Airlines and Kayak."
Pros: "At Least the Staff was keeping us updated."
Cons: "No good-faith gesture was offered for the long delay. My associate and I completely missed an important dinner meeting with the rest of our team! Our team takes this trip each year and we have always drove. It' short and I then have transportation when I arrive. This year we decided to fly because it's even easier. This particular flight from Phoenix to Vegas took us longer then if we were to drive and I then spent more in RideShare. I won't be doing it again next year."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late. No big deal. Once on, however, they made us deboard because they forgot to do a security check. Oops. Flight attendants made the experience much better -- funny, enthusiastic, hard-working."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "This requires a list- 1. For a new plane, the seats were uncomfortable 2. The seats had no leg rests 3. It was an overnight flight, arriving before 6 am and all that was offered prior to landing was a mint...seriously, no coffee? I was in first class and expected a light breakfast but AT LEAST A CUP OF COFFEE. Never again will I pay for first class on this airline. AMERICAN AIRLINES SHOULD BE ASHAMED. 4. The crew was unwelcoming and unfriendly. Not acceptable when paying these prices."
Pros: "Find America airlines very expensive and then you check on the back charge the sea charge ."
Cons: "Don't know why they would load the plane then to have you wait for 10 minutes 15 minutes why they deal with that mechanical issue."
Pros: "The only reason I was able to make this flight was that it, too, was delayed. We received ZERO notification - as we were running from one plane to another from Concourse A to B - that the Phoenix-LA flight was delayed. I mean how difficult is that to do?"
Cons: "We took off. We landed. We didn't crash. We sat on the runway for nearly an hour. So much fun!"
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"
Cons: "On the last leg from Abu Dhabi to A'bad, upon boarding the plane, my wife requested the stuardess that she could not order the Vege food online for some strange reasons and that if they can provide it to her, she bluntly refused and said if it wasn't ordered earlier she won't get it. She could have easily said that she will see what can be done. No need to be that rude for a reputable airline staff."
Pros: "The trip was on time and with no issues flying. I really enjoyed the ability to watch a movie...this was AWESOME!"
Cons: "Wow, the seating was VERY tight and I was happy for the TV screen in front of me to keep me busy. All the inflight interruptions on the movie I was watching."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "On time yes. Every seat sold. Overhead baggage full had to check luggage. Dinner time flight no food. No beer."
Pros: "Entertainment movies"
Cons: "Never will I fly on them Again! No protective measures in regard to Covid! Terrible!"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "Everything! Jam packed flight. and no Covid measures taken. Aweful!!! I will Never fly on them Again! Shame on the Airline!"
Pros: "The was helpful and friendly and was able to take care of problems."
Cons: "Notifying me when a flight was being canceled before getting to the airport not where. You are supposed to be boarding the plane."
Pros: "Flight smooth. Not too crowded."
Cons: "Flight delayed."
Cons: "Couldn't hear announcements over PA system"
Cons: "I got two basic economy seats and no seat assignment until after other passengers had already started boarding. The gate agent showed up late so it was a hassle to get to the counter and find out where I was sitting. Then there was a long backup on the gang way, and we still couldn't get on the plane. We were delayed sitting on the tarmac for an extra hour, the crew could have given us drinks or snacks then."
Pros: "Great movies"
Cons: "Very cramped seats"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays. :("
Cons: "Plane was clean. Leg room was adequate for a 6 footer. Wafer cookie was good. Crew was nice."
Pros: "The crew was friendly but because of 5 flight delays we missed our connections in Amsterdam and got stuck in Houston for the night."
Cons: "The crew was friendly but because of 5 flight delays we missed our connection to Amsterdam and got stuck in Houston for the night. Because of this we were forced to pay for a hotel in Houston. I believe that we should have received some type of voucher for the huge inconvenience and waste of money"
Cons: "Crew was really inattentive and service was poor to say the least. Very disappointing business class experience."
Pros: "Baggage was delivered to the carousel before passenger could get there. No waiting! Well done!"
Cons: "United has a 2 hour delay for mechanical issue. We almost missed our connection to Zurich. Our bags did not make it and we are still waiting for our luggage"
Pros: "AlwYs on time"
Cons: "I couldn't make my trip because of work. Therefore had to cancel but Lufthansa would not provide refund so I had a wasted ticket. Not happy"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "Seats are not comfortable and it is hard to sleep on this flight"
Cons: "Seats, crew."
Pros: "It was quiet, staff were chearful!"
Cons: "A little cramped in the middle."
Pros: "Boarding went quickly."
Cons: "Landing early, then sitting on the plane for an hour and a half, which made me miss my connection for the second time in my last two united flights. Being given no assistance in how you rectify my situation and having to figure it out myself, then boarding the next flight late. Recieving no compensation for the inconveniences United caused me on both of the last two flights I've taken with them."
Pros: "Simple and easy,"
Cons: "United has poor consideration for their customers. It does not seem that they are looking to make the trip a postive experience for the customers. Employees are rude and are not personable when in contact with the customer."
Cons: "Nice quiet flight home."
Pros: "Paid to have more room to be comfortable but the service Wa not overly special. Flight attendant got us a drink after takeoff; then promptly turned off the lights & sat & read her book. I would have had to ring the buzzer to get anything. She didn't even collect the glasses. I know it was a red-eye but she could have paid a little more attention."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The crew and service was very nice and pleasant"
Cons: "To hard to use the inflight entertainment from wifi and that it was delayed"
Pros: "Seats have some good cush to them"
Cons: "I specifically bought carry on luggage that meets the standards so that I would not have to go baggage claim as it would weigh heavily on my schedule. As I stood in line and noticed all of the huge "carry on" bags more than 2 I was astounded when the flight attendant said my carry on would have to be loaded with the other luggage. When I offered my rebuke she scolded me and said the luggage would be there before me....how the hell is that supposed to happen? To make matter worse the flight "attendants" stopped serving half way and when they started again I got trapped by the bathroom and did not get back to my seat in time to enjoy a beverage....not that I was offered one."
Cons: "There were several flights departing from Dallas Fort Worth and they couldn't get me on one based on weather supposedly but there's zero rain on the ground they made me pay for a hotel hundred bucks to stay in a Holiday Inn Express end it's not very quaint mind you I don't get to leave and get to my destination until 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon"
Pros: "I appreciated that the pilot was very upfront and honest with us about the delayed flights going into San Francisco."
Cons: "My flight got delayed so much that I ended up cancelling my trip."
Pros: "I'm glad I didn't get kicked off!"
Cons: "I did not like the boarding process and I had a fear of being kicked off."
Pros: "The desk people were nice in Phoenix, AZ"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 6 hours so United rebooked the whole flight, however they made no attempt to inform us before we arrived at the airport. We found out when we arrived to our gate to board. So because we did not know about the delay until the time of boarding, we missed all other flights out because it was 8pm and no more flights could take us to our final destination. We did receive a hotel voucher but we had to pay for a taxi back to the airport as well as we had to pay extra for our car that had been sitting in the airport garage overnight. It should have been $2.50, but because it sat in the garage overnight we had to pay $20."
Pros: "The flight was on time. Boarding on and off was good."
Cons: "The in flight wifi doesnt allow streaming. It was lame and there was no free in flight movies. So other than sleeping or using an app to text there was nothing you could do. In flight wifi isnt worth buying."
Pros: "Overall experience was great!"
Cons: "Snacks could have been better. Next time, I would like an entire pop instead of a small cup."
Pros: "But as far as I know, nobody was beaten up by your goons. From now on, I will fly United only as a last result."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "It was a ten am flight, they forgot to stock snacks, so no food on board at all, and I was hungry!"
Pros: "No issues staff was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Everything went well Lloyds"
Pros: "Organized boarding"
Cons: "We're all aware of the national "glitch" the delayed flights a couple of hours. While our plane was available for an on-time departure (UA1976) @11:35, the crew was inbound on one of the delayed flights (UA1611). United could have known as early as 7:30pm that 1611 wasn't going to make it on time to turn around the crew and would hold up 1976 as a result. Instead United didn't update passengers of 1976 until 11:55 (20 minutes after it was obvious that it was delayed and 4.5 hours after they could have known). Maybe I'm missing something, would love for someone at United to explain it."
Pros: "Everything from boarding to landing was great."
Pros: "The actual flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I was told it was due to "weather issues", and that i'd more than likely miss my flight, and that there was nothing they could do about it. I ask the guy to print me some sort of itinerary to show my work, and it shows "mechanicall issues", not weather. Confirmed this with their website. I was told I'd probably be arriving in Seattle around 1-1:30AM. By pure chance, my flight from San Fran to Seattle was ALSO delayed (due to a late incoming flight), so I was able to board my original connecting flight. However, this still put me in a bad situation. I use public transportation, which wont be running by the time I arrive. LooKS like I'll be forking out $50+ for an Uber or Lyft home. Thanks, United. I only ever get delays when I fly United."
Pros: "Comfort of plane"
Cons: "Delay boarding, wait for a seat ticket, and gate to next terminal"
Pros: "UA crew/ FAs got me to my destination safely, fairly comfortably (good seats), and efficiently."
Cons: "I felt that mid-cabin was chilly even with a blanket that I had along. Being a former FA, I feel that most flight crews today fail to be aware of cabin temp as it relates to passengers. I realize that we all have different body temps, but cold is cold and uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Crowded flight efficient crew and staff pleasant and cooperative passengers."
Cons: "The days of an empty seat are gone the new normal is crowded flights."
Pros: "The friendly and comfortable atmosphere!"
Cons: "PHX is a large airport, and my emailed ticket said Brussles Airlines, Terminal 4. First off, Brussles Airlines is not a carrier at PHX, and secondly no one knew that United was their partner. There was no information provided to me to go to United, which was in Terminal 2. After making a phone call to Brussles Airlines, I ended up getting to the check in gate ten minutes after boarding started. It was a lovely rest of the trip after that though! But please include partner information im the email next time!"
Cons: "It was a very packed flight and I feel like the boarding process could've gone smoother."
Cons: "Called the airlines to cancel only my flight there to SFO but the full reservation was canceled which made me but a new reservation to come back to PHX. Very poorly handled."
Pros: "The price Phoenix to LA and back for around $77"
Cons: "I got the shitty set by the exit door that didn't recline no big deal on such a short trip"
