Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"

Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"

Pros: "That the flight ended"
Cons: "Everything. In a flight from Miami/Orlando (full of families) you are not allowed to choose seats, at the gate (where you supposed to change seats) the staff was rude, inside the plan people make their own changes and it gets a mess. Terrible experience."

Cons: "AA seats are very small and narrow. The reclining part was uncomfortable. I prefer legroom and comfort at Delta Airlines."

Cons: "There was a delay on the departure"

Pros: "Nothing, really. But it could have been worse."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Did they run out of planes or something? They couldn't have used a backup? Plane was old and junky. Seats, of course, were way too small and uncomfortable."

Cons: "Staff friendliness. Not forever late. Not losing kids stroller"

Pros: "The early boarding and charging ports accesbility?"
Cons: "Just one snack option maybe a few more comps. Also it didn’t have any info on the new airplane. The ride was nice."

Pros: "Plane was clean, wifi worked"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5hrs, had to wait on tarmac 30min to take off and 15min to get to gate, bumpy flight. Jerky inputs from pilot."

Cons: "Have coach passengers prepay for meals"

Cons: "Better customer service, better customer experience, no delays"

Cons: "Flight was 90 min late due to mechanical issue. Missed next two flights, was rebooked in coach vs paid for first class."

Pros: "Price for a very short notice trip, ease of online booking, very informative staff. Also, able to readjust my seating assignment."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the pilot assigned had a car wreck coming to work that morning. The delay was not bad, but my timeline was tight. Still, very grateful that a suitable replacement was found. The delay could have been much worse."

Pros: "Wi-Fi and USB ports worked great. Seat was comfortable after 11 upgrade. On time."
Cons: "Having to pay extra for a aisle seat"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "New Plane interior"

Cons: "The flight from Miami to Sao Paulo was delayed, therefore, I lost the flight from Sao Paulo to Asunción, those from Latam did not give me any solution and they sent me to the people of American Airlines saying it was their fault. I traveled 3 hours through the whole airport and they did not give me any solution, no new flight."

Cons: "Seat isn’t very comfortable"

Cons: "Missed connection due to the crew delay and the runway being shut down to only one."

Cons: "I had to put my carry on item 10 seats behind my seat location. That delayed my leaving of the plane to my next flight."

Pros: "Taking the exit door makes a difference in having enough leg room. Everyone was nice an helpful."

Cons: "Past was dry... It was the first time but changed my experience"

Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"

Pros: "Got us home finally"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment on the flight was good, they had live TV and other TV shows."
Cons: "Boarding was hectic with passengers fighting over the overhead compartment spaces, security measures were overbearing with around 2 hours of going thru checks between terminals at Heathrow Airport. The seat selection is a joke since we could never select our seat not even 24 hours before the flight, so buyers be aware. The food was mediocre at best."

Pros: "My flight is tomorrow"

Pros: "It got me there safely without delays."
Cons: "Food isn't good. the connections can be offered in a much better and time efficient way but they were not. I had to change airports in NYC with a 7-hr layover while they could've flown me to JFK (there was available flights). Same thing with coming back, a long layover in Texas."

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"

Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Short flight, so seats were good."
Cons: "Food options are generally not good on American Airlines flights. This has been a beef of mine."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The entire flight. Bumbing, disabled seating was not provided as promised, neither was off boarding to baggage area."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Poor service and food quality for having paid for business class. Cabin crew more focused on their own convenience than the customers."

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"

Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"

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!"

Pros: "Great movie selection and beautiful plane!"

Pros: "everything on travel is good."

Cons: "LATAM deboarded me from the flight after I had boarded. They claimed American had cancelled my reservation because they did not think I would make my connection. I ran in order to make it and then instead of offering me information on the next flight they left me stranded with instructions to find American. Terrible, terrible customer service. I will think twice before booking a LATAM flight again."

Pros: "They have a huge selection of movies"
Cons: "They do not have gluten free options"

Pros: "Streaming entertainment with great choices Not too crowded so got my upgrade"
Cons: "Food was disgusting... bland cheese lasagna or small wet noodle salad with piece of chicken. This menu has been going for years! Old B757 No sparkling water but 75 variations of Coca Cola"

Cons: "Your subject headline in your email read: How was your Alaska Airlines flight to Washington? All correspondence referenced Alaska Airlines, however my flight was and American Airlines flight and in a terminal on the complete other side of the airport. I suggest you clarify on line."

Pros: "I liked because it was my mom first international trip and she got all the support from the crew. She loved it!"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are not roomy, but that's par for the course."

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Cons: "Voar 8 horas de Miami para Sao Paulo sem entretenimento de bordo foi péssimo. Poucos filmes e nenhum com legenda em Português. Se o voo era pro Brasil acho que era o mínimo que se poderia esperar. A comida estava horrível."

Pros: "I like the entertainment choice"
Cons: "No snacks I had to pay for my bag I'm sticking to southwest"

Pros: "Great friendly crew for 7 am on a Saturday morning."
Cons: "Tarmac delay upon landing because of runway constr"

Pros: "Got us on the flight and in the air fast."
Cons: "They had plane issues and then the flight was delayed and then they changed our gates."

Cons: "Delayed flight, attendants were rude and unhelpful."

Pros: "We arrived to our destination safety."
Cons: "My seat was changed on me last minute without notifying me. I was moved away from my friends. It took a while to get this resolved with my seat. Once it was solved my chair was broken and could not recline. It took them 3 hours to get this fixed and were rude to me the entire time. I told them I had never been treated so poorly on a plane."

Pros: "The flight attendant in business class was awesome!"

Pros: "Horrendous experience. 6 hours on the tarmac, followed by a another 7 hour delay. I missed my connecting flight in Sao Paolo - had to spend another $1300 to get to my final destination"
Cons: "Everything was terrible."

Cons: "It is unacceptable that United is still submitting its customers in business class to old planes and very old seats - including rows with four seats looking backwards with no separation between the seats (with the same issue on the window seats, which are double seats). Dreadful flight - my fare shall be refunded in full."

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Tight space and food could be better"

Pros: "Weather delays and the Boeing 737 problems a little out of their control. Some things could have done better, but some good employee efforts."
Cons: "Small planes are subpar.. Food useless. Baggage fees. When things go bad you're on your own."

Pros: "I forgot my charger at the gate and the purser was so kind to help bring it back #unitedairlinecares"
Cons: "Nothing was a perfect flight"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Overall wonderful trip"
Cons: "17L entertainment screen didn't work"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The fact that you have to download an app to get any kind of entertainment on United is a bit ridiculous. Plus the food offerings are poor at best."

Pros: "service was good. instructions in English & Portuguese."
Cons: "lavatories didn't work below 5,000 ft. It was extremely cold so I had to put on my coat. Seats of course are very uncomfortable."

Pros: "A comida"
Cons: "As cadeiras poderiam inclinar mais para trás."

Pros: "Service Cleanliness Food Entertainment Boarding"
Cons: "Length of Flight"

Pros: "Getting home safely!!"

Cons: "there was someone sitting in my chair who got angry and it was very rude because I asked him to sit in the right place. I had to put my carry far from me because he put his on my head."

Cons: "Late, no leg room and bad wifi"

Cons: "Majorly delayed, barely made my connecting flight, My poor body was so confused - "WHY are we up right now, WHY are we running so hard and carrying much weight." I felt exactly like I was finishing a cross country race trying to make my connection, then the gate agents made me check my bags, I'm looking at completely vacant overhead compartments and will never fly this airline ever again. No food. No drinks. Rude and disriptive attendants - let us sleep!"

Cons: "Extremely small plane. No tv in headrests or on plane, Not enough room for everyone's carry on, no usb charging ports, don't offer unlimited snacks and beverages. They did not offer ANY drinks or snack on this flight which is ridiculous."

Pros: "Very smooth ride from take off to landing"

Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"

Cons: "They should board the plane from the back to front, it just makes sense to do it this way, less people out if place and it would board faster"

Pros: "Had to cancel."
Cons: "WaIting for refund"

Pros: "Attentive stewards"

Cons: "My flight was delayed (not due to weather) almost 4 hrs"

Pros: "We only liked it cause we landed safe"
Cons: "Everything it was very out dated over priced"

Pros: "Meal, snack, water and a glass of wine...the entertainment monitor functioned...brought my own ear phones but airline offered them...lotion in the toilet...friendly service...the small comforts make a HUGE difference...not being nickel and dimmed to death...really MATTERS...especially when you are crammed in."
Cons: "It is difficult to sit for 7+ hours in such tight quarters...but...for the price...I'd do it again. Also I had very considerate seat mates."

Pros: "Kansas City airport has to be the worst in the country. Over an hour to get through TSA."
Cons: "I was to be in Kansas City at 4PM and did not get in until after 11PM. Two planes with mechanical problems. The return flight was ahead of schedule all the way."

Pros: "That we didn't crash."

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived half an hour early. The ride was smooth as could be. Flight attendants were courteous and helpful. They were personable and took their time out to give each customer the their best, even though the flight was quite full. I highly recommend this flight."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything went as scheduled. Would take it again."

Pros: "Everything was ok."

Cons: "Boarding in IAH was a mess. Several gate changes, airport information screens didn't match with the actual departure gate, lines were not properly identified. Very bad."

Pros: "Small airport, comfortable seating, polite crew"
Cons: "Snack wasn't my style"

Pros: "The staff was very helpful. When overhead storage was full, bags were checked at no additional cost."
Cons: "Had trouble with the highly advertised entertainment. On the trip from Rapid to Chicago, the entertainment wouldn't work. I was fairly comfortable in my aisle seat, but think it I had to be in a center of window seat, I would have been very uncomfortable."

Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. Crew was kind to allow me to use an empty seat in the middle row and get more space. Managed to connect to onboard entertainment with a tablet and avoided to use the tiny screen that still exists on United's 767s."
Cons: "Food was a bit tasteless."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed Missed connection in Denver Then while on plane about to take off, pilot realized plane lacked fuel to make our destination My 4 1/2 hour flight took 9.... Terrible experience"

Pros: "It was a pretty smooth flight and it was pretty well organized."
Cons: "The plane was in the Houston hanger most of the day, but it seems they didn't test it. Even after being delayed on the ground due to rain and a mechanical problem with the ramp for three hours, the plane had to turn around and come back to Houston due to another mechanical issue. Finally left 13.5 hours late. I did receive a hotel room, breakfast and 10,000 miles compensation for the hassle, but I would rather have been in Brazil on time."

Pros: "It was awesome, I could travel on Gold gropu for a chrap pice! Simply great"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Crew was very accommodating to the fact that I was flying with a large service animal. They even brought him his own dinner. They were excellent people."

Pros: "Snack was nice even for a short plane. Every seat having a television was very night."
Cons: "Being 6 foot I couldn't fit my legs in the seats they were so tightly packed on the plane. Even another inch of leg room would have been great. Thankfully it was only a 40 minute flight because by the end of it my legs and feet were numb and I was irritated at the space allowed."

Cons: "Pilots capabiliy. Excellent smooth landing. Friendly crew."

Pros: "Flight was early!"
