Pros: On time departure & arrival; helpful staff at check in & at the gate; plane was comfortable.
Cons: Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years.
Pros: We arrived on time.
Cons: These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away.

Pros: On time Attendants friendly Great service
Cons: No complaints
Pros: Other passengers were friendly?
Cons: I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant.
Pros: Nothing, the worse experience I've ever had on a flight from the US Never AA again!!
Cons: Unprofessional crew!! The safety instruction was a mess, first it was on the big screen, totally black, only sound, then the crew started a discussion in the ail if the would do the safety instructions yes or no...in the end they did it without explanation what the were doing and in 2 minutes. Al three of them just did something. Rude and chewing gum crew, the dropped a salad bowl but not one of them was thinking about cleaning it up. The entire flight everybody walked over it in to the carpet. Friendlynes and service are two words that does not apply to this crew. From the first flight till the last flight AA made a mess out of it. Canceled our flight in JFK, no help or service, you are on your own when AA cancels a flight, after rebooking our flight we had a 7 hour stopover at Dallas, again no service, no voucher, no nothing. Then today with our return flight AA could not find our ticket numbers, turns out that when they rebooked our inbound flight they forgot to take over the return flight...cost us 2 hours and 10 minutes to check in at LGA Never, ever again with AA, even easyJet provides better service then AA does on intercontinental flight!
Pros: The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list.
Cons: No usb or wall chargers. No inseat entertainment and glitchy wifi entertainment
Cons: Small plane with no leg room
Cons: Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew.
Cons: i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight.
Cons: Several consecutive issues delayed our start, then had a weather hold before we could descend. VERY crowded, got stuck with a window seat with a very large man next to me--better than B or D, at least.
Pros: Quick and easy
Cons: Obama ground stop in Philadelphia. No one knew in advance? seating very cramped. Entry to aircraft looked dangerous. It would be easy to fall to the tarmac. Very kow railing.
Pros: American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous.
Cons: My flight date was changed because of a medical issue with my grandson, and I was outraged by the amount of the change fee.
Pros: Not applicable
Pros: The passengers
Cons: A/c was broken
Cons: I never even made the flight because they kept jerking us around
Cons: Uncomfortable; charged $50 for checking bags only to see them checked for others for free at the gate. Seat selection on our three flights that day were ignored on 2 of tge floghts.
Pros: Easy upgrade
Cons: E145 don’t have room for carry on. Instead of people having to wait at exit of plane. Tell them well a head like when booking check your bag and make that one free. It goes to the same place right?
Cons: Poor customer service
Pros: the crew was nice
Cons: We had to sit on the tarmac and deplane just to get onto another flight where I no longer had any power to charge my devices
Pros: Crew was very accommodating in light of the maintenance delay. Especially for those of us with small children.
Cons: Look, delays suck. We fly about only once a year, and we ALWAYS have a delay. ALWAYS. Air traffic control at Newark will delay a flight for a hangnail.
Pros: Good entertainment options but couldn't get them to work on my laptop so I had to watch a movie on a small mobile phone screen
Cons: Long delay due to weather. Got screwed by a change fee for a mistake I made on my original booking, no consideration. Good entertainment options but couldn't get them to work on my laptop so I had to watch a movie on a small mobile phone screen-website didn't request to download or activate DRM plug
Pros: Very friendly crew.
Cons: This is a small airplane. I would like to see United insist that people check large bags.
Pros: Poor customer service and not understanding.
Cons: Don’t now it’s not the company’s fault it’s just the representative that I spoke to. I don’t know how many times I could explain my situation, and my English is not poor and I thought I was explaining myself clearly. Best think I could do is just say forget it I’ll take my $ 430 dollar last.
Cons: I don't like not having a TV screen
Pros: The greeting and smiles I received from the crew members as I was boarding. The plane had entertainment and alcoholic beverages.
Cons: The only thing I can complain about is the weather causing the aircraft to shake
Pros: It’s existance. Informative capt.
Cons: Late almost 3 hours. Sketchy bev service. 50 seat RJ.
Cons: Flight got cancelled again and again then call customer service but he doesn’t know anything about information. Totally ruined my day
Cons: 3 hour mechanical delay
Pros: An early departure!
Pros: Nothing was good about this airline with the exception of the baggage crew that finally helped me in Washington Ronald Regan Airport
Cons: My flight out of Portland was canceled and it took hours to rebook. I had to fly American Airline to Washington DCA where I roamed the airport at 9pm looking for someone from United. The crew in Portland ME told me the gate person would have a hotel for me.... The baggage crew had to help me.
Cons: I only made it as far as Chicago, and my bag was fairly comprehensively lost as I did so
Cons: Person at ticket counter was rude did not want to wait in us when we was 1st in line. Did not greet and say good morning
Pros: AT THE TERMINAL IN PORTLAND THE ATTENDANTS WERE SUPER HELPFUL AS I WAS CONFUSED ABOUT GETTING MY TICKETS.
Cons: JUST BEFORE BOARDING THOSE OF US PASSENGERS NOT ALREADY BOARDED WERE TOLD WE COULD NOT BRING OUR CARRY ONS WITH US AS THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE TO STOW THEM OVERHEAD. SO WE WERE TOLD TO SEND THEM DIRECTLY TO OUR FINAL DESTINATION. WHEN I BOARDED THE PLANE I COUNTED 7 OVERHEAD STORAGE BINS ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE TO MY AISLE WHERE I WAS SEATED WERE NOT FILLED AND THERE WERE SEVERAL SUCH BINS ON MY SIDE OF THE AISLE (I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO COUNT THEM BEFORE I SAT DOWN). I ASKED AN ATTENDANT WHY THIS WAS SO GIVEN WE WERE TOLD THE BINS WERE FILLED JUST AS WE BOARDING FROM THE DEPARTURE AREA. SHE WAS POLITE AND SAID SHE WASN'T SURE ABOUT WHO MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE TERMINAL BUT THAT IN ANY EVENT MY CARRY ON WOULD ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND IN VANCOUVER - IT DID BUT WITH MY BOOK FOOD SNACK WHICH i HAD INTENDED TO USE WHILE ON MY WAY TO CHI. AND VAN.
Pros: First time first class flyer. It was great!
Cons: Being separated from my wife in seating when we booked before others that we talked to!
Pros: The flight attendants. Especially Meagan and Heather. Amber was a,sweetheart too. I had the same attendants 3 out of 4 of my flights that weekend. So cool. When they realized it was me again they spoiled me rotten. So good I feel like unless I have those 3 as my attendants I won't fly United again
Cons: No food options. No free food
Pros: Got me there
Cons: Bad knee hurt by end of flgt
Cons: Really awful, disorganized and unapologetic.
Pros: Got through sucurity ar PNR barely in time to make flight.
Cons: Even though I am a frequent flyer with a Global Access card, I was select for enhanced security check. I paid for the Global Accessmcard especially sofas to avoid this. United said it was a TSA thing while TSA said it was at the prerogative of the airline. Why did this happen? So much for TSA Pre or Global Access.
Pros: Flight was short.
Cons: I was not informed about the delay until after I checked my bag, otherwise I might have chosen another flight. I was informed that though I could possibly change flights, my bag might not. I have the UA app, and did not receive timely notification. Free WIFI would have been nice as a compensation. A 4 hour delay means I miss my bus and extends my travel time significantly, one more night away from home. You did offer $50 of mt next UA flight for the next year, but I don't fly that often. Considering the reason for the delay was they were waiting for a plane was frustrating.
Pros: Usual United Corp mentality Overbook flites change your itinary leave you stranded with no connection spend nite in airport
Cons: See above
Pros: Leg room paid extra for economy plus
Cons: Paid extra for economy plus, my seat didnt recline
Pros: Arrived early
Cons: The plane dropped during decent.
Pros: The flight was ok.
Cons: It took a long time to hook up to the jetway once we taxied in to EWR. Pilot even commented that he didn't know what the heck she was doing out there.
Pros: Flight did not happen
Pros: I liked when Delta stepped up and had us booked on one of their flights within seconds, after United abandoned us at their own terminal.
Cons: Flight delayed 3 times due to maintenance, total of 5 hours. After final arrival time came and went with no plane or even announcement, I had to go back through security to front desk to find a rep and remind United that they had forgotten about us. They handed us off to the Delta counter with no apology (except the "new girl" apologized)
Pros: Not a single thing!
Cons: Arrived late
Cons: Kayak did not provide me with confirming email for flight in either direction and I missed my first flight to LA from Portland This is the second time I was not contacted via email from Kayak on flight reservations
Pros: The crew was nice and the area was clean.
Cons: I didn't like the fact that before boarding they offered to check peoples bags for free because so many people were trying to take ridiculous sized bags onto the plane. I always pay to check my bag . That process took for ever but we did still arrive on time.
Cons: it took me three days to get home. the first plane had a mechanical error. the second flight united booked me on was over booked so i didnt get a seat. the third flight they tried to send me on was also over booked. luckily someone volunteered to give up their seat.
Pros: Helpful employees
Cons: Being charged for internet access. Cramped seating.
Pros: We stood in line forever to then be told the clerk couldn't ch we ck us in. When we tried the kiosk it didn’t work. Long story short we missed our flight due to their poor organization of the line and crowd.
Cons: The confusion caused by lack of direction from the staff.
Cons: Seating next to the bathroom is gross
Pros: Friendly and polite! Crew.
Cons: Middle seat. Space too small.
Pros: Couldn't really figure out your Wi-Fi system so I just read a book
Cons: It's not really easy to set up your Wi-Fi system through the United app
Pros: It use to be, I could put up with the lack of comfort and services because the cost savings made it bearable. But thes days, the basic ticket costs are high and increasing despite ala Carter pricing. The flights are always full and the number of flights are down. Airline profits are at a peak yet very little is flowing back to improve the flying experience.
Cons: No agent to check in when I arrived at airport. Only at gate. No advance check in or advance seating. Allowed passengers to have more than 2 bags. Flight was late. No help getting to next gate or holding aircraft. Absolutely uncomfortable sitting.
Pros: That I got a refund, although that should be a given
Cons: Had to purchase new flight day of, as I was told of flight cancellation 5 hours before leaving to the airport. I then had to spend $500 on a new flight, and one of the connections refused to let me on the plane. Stil not home.
Pros: Pleasant crew
Pros: made good time.
Cons: they lost our luggage on the way back,Didn't make it to Portland. But it was brought to our house at 7:45. I think for 1600.00 for tickets you should provide pretzels. That would be great. Thanks
Cons: Canceled flight, booked me an impossible connection, put on stayby when I get the tickets months in advance. Offered no vouchers and made me fly out on a diffrent day. Hs aircraft delays on all flights
Cons: Never flying United again. On my way to the airport in Portland I got a text from United that my flight to Newark had been cancelled and there was no way to fly me out of Portland to San Diego that day. My sister had to drive me to Boston so I could catch a flight to San Francisco, which took 6.5 hours because it flew over most of Canada for some reason AND had three babies that cried from start to finish. Oh and because I was a late addition, I had a middle seat. The second I turned my phone on after we landed I had another yet another text from United saying that my connection to San Diego had been delayed three hours and wouldn't take off until 11:15 pm.
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.
Cons: Payed to upgrade seat was not comfortable and person next to me kept moving onto my side. Flight was 2 hours late so I missed my connection and had a terrible time to find a flight home. United staff was not helpful and kept telling me to go somewhere else for help. No food was served only tiny packet of way too spicy pretzels. Sat on the runway for an hour. Flight crew said 15 min and it was much longer. Crew seemed to be really confused.
Pros: By getting my ticket from Kayak I was always informed if my flas delay and updates every time. And due to I drove to a far places after I got to Washington I was about to lose my flight but the airline was able to gave me another flight later on. So was perfect.
Pros: Polite staff
Pros: The crew communicated well to the passengers.
Cons: I didn't get to Chicago until close to midnight, the flight to MSP was cancelled, and I missed my meeting the next morning. I understand you can't control the weather, but that didn't change the outcome for me.
