Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I always have preferred American Airlines but they seem to have constant problems with the aircraft these days. This causes delays and missed connections. This in turn causes no breakfast or lunch or dinner opportunities. I travel with snacks in my bag at all times now just in case so I won’t get sick for lack of nourishment or water! This last flight I missed my connection altogether and had to take a shuttle home, then catch a ride back to the airport to pick up my luggage and then get my car to drive home. It was 4 hours past my expected time home."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, my flights were on time, good selection of movies. That's about it."
Cons: "Their Basic fare should be renamed "Bare-sic" – you have to pay for almost anything. Food choices can be better. I guess they can pay the Munich airport to get better treatment and not having to bus their passengers around."
Pros: "It was on time!"
Cons: "Was not allowed to get on slightly early with a car seat and a 3 year old to get situated in the seats, though on every other flight we have been allowed to. There was a delay that caused us to miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays & I changed to United."
Cons: "Stop delaying & canceling flights, especially last minute"
Pros: "Seats very comfortable"
Cons: "No money for baggage registred"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "Gate check of carry-on luggage was nice. The connecting flight from DFW to FLL was on time and the boarding process was very smoothly executed by the gate agent. Well done!!"
Cons: "The flight out of RNO early in the morning was chaotic. One of the kiosks was down and the line to self-check was long and moved very slowly because there was only one agent behind the self-check baggage drop. She did well keeping up but there was a long line of unhappy customers due to the long wait. No snack was offered but I did get a glass of water. Not enough overhead storage for the carry-on bags because passengers get the luggage check tag but brought the carry-on onboard anyway."
Pros: "I feel like there is more leg room in the seats then in other discount airlines! I like the snack and drink, this breaks up the flight a bit. This is nice for me because I don’t like to fly."
Cons: "The staff seemed miserable. No one was nice or even smiled. Just felt like they couldn’t wait for this leg of their day/trip to be over."
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Poor ratings for food Is result of not eating any food. No entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "the staff were not knowledgeable on visa requirements at checkin in Reno. As a result my checkin took long at the counter. Small CRJ700 plane was cramped though fast."
Cons: "I think things would run so much smoother if the plane was loaded from the back to the front. That way you don't have to wait as long for people to put things in the overhead and then sit down."
Pros: "Flight box waste of money for sure. The middle seat was vacant and it was fantastic. We travelbwith a guide dog."
Cons: "The boxed food"
Pros: "Automatic ticket rebooking"
Cons: "It being cancelled."
Cons: "Could not get to Santa Fe! Had to fly to Albuquerque & arrange transport to Santa Fe! No luggage til next day!"
Cons: "Delays without updates, rude flight staff, lost baggage"
Pros: "Movie was the only positive side of the trip. Cramp seats."
Cons: "Subpar in every aspect. Landing was horrible with a hard touch that made everyone bounce."

Pros: "new plane, on time"
Cons: "Somewhat bumpy landing if I'm being picky..."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Everything about the flight was awful. Food pathetic, my monitor didn’t work, smooshed between 2 overweight passengers. Flight crew lacked simple etiquette."
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough"
Cons: "They force you to get to the airport really early."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could considering the situation."
Cons: "There were multiple delays, leaving half my flight with missed connections in Phoenix."
Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
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: "Free seats in economy class are way too squeezed for a 10 hours flight."
Cons: "delayed and missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Great attendants excellent customer service"
Cons: "Awful TSAs"
Cons: "We waited at the gate in Frankfurt once the plane was loaded for 40 minutes for the aircraft to get pushed back from the jetway . Waited another 25 minutes in Dallas for an operator to place the jetway to the aircraft. One of the stewardess we had was really rude."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful given the situation."
Cons: "I changed my flight because they said there would be bad weather. I would have gotten there on time if I never changed it."
Cons: "3 hour delay on international flight from JFK made for a very long day."
Cons: "Bathrooms in the airport deplorable. Gates not so clean as well."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice. I dont' like to fly and the take off was so rough, I spent the whole flight in the bathroom. The flight attendant gave me ginger ale and pretzels and let me sit in the back so i didn't have to go back and forth. The other flight attendant had aroma therapy that helped a lot but i was just too freaked out. Those two made the flight as nice as possible."
Cons: "Very rough take off but that is mother nature not the air line :) Took off almost an hour late. LAX scheduled too many flight to land at the same time, Had to wait on the runway in Reno."
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Small plane claustrophobia, entertainment required your own debice"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was definitely the highlight. The cabin crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "There was a 2hr+ delay for boarding."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight to to 3 delays."
Pros: "We left 55 minutes late. Person at counter was annoying. Kept grabbing the microphone, think he liked hearing himself talk. Wanted to valet all the carryons but there was room in the airplane for them."
Cons: "being late and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Flight was one time."
Cons: "It was a standard boarding. The standard ride. I have nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."
Pros: "Boarding was easy & seamless"
Cons: "Had to lie about forgetting my phone charger in the waiting area to get off the plane & give my niece a hug who arrived early on a neighboring flight from NY to RNO as we switched off to take care of my dad who just had a triple bypass. If two people are past security - there should be NO ISSUE with them meeting - we have already been screened & a hug or anything else should not be a crime."
Cons: "I still have not received my luggage"
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Cons: "The previous crew did not do some kind of check so leaving Reno was delayed which left almost no time to get to my connecting flight. No one seemed very happy at all."
Pros: "Politeness of the crew"
Cons: "Not very spacious and entertainment only offered at My own expense"
Pros: "Very good and safe"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Easy bording"

Cons: "There were a few bumps. Would be nice to use points for seat upgrades"
Cons: "Sat on the runway way too long. Hot. Cramped plane"
Pros: "Flight landed on time"
Cons: "Entertainment system was down. This created chaos for some families sitting nearby. The crew told us to complete a survey about the difficulties in order to chose a small token for compensation. When completing the survey, an automatic message popped up that stated that there were no problems on the flight."
Pros: "We had a 1pm connecting flight to SF enroute to Los Angeles and it was suddenly cancelled without any notification. Luckily, Kayak had notified me about the cancellation and we immediately called United to take the next flight out. The earliest was at 5:50pm and we didn’t get back to LA till 7:50pm. The 5:50pm flight was late and therefore push everything out..."
Cons: "No communication from United... the crew and staff was fine, it was just the lack of communication that was disappointing! Not to mention, I had my dog boarded at Doggy Daycare and I’d missed picking her up due to the late return back to LA."
Cons: "Seating is very tight and amenities are nada."
Cons: "i had no space & couldn’t move because passenger next to me should have been required to purchase TWO SEATS!!! I could not move entire flight & he had armrest up & took up my space & full plant so i could not move elsewhere. my neck is still killing me because i had to turn my head to stay away from his face. i will NEVER fly united again."
Pros: "Easy very organized loading."
Cons: "Really nothing"
Pros: "That seats next to me were empty so I was able to sleep comfortably."
Cons: "That my ears don't work well, so it's hard to hear the movies."
Cons: "Very turbulent flight"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed leaving RNO, and the check-in agent moved my seat up to the front even though I had the new "Basic Economy" so I'd have a better chance running to catch my connection upon arrival. She also put my backpack in one of those plastic bags. DCA did not do the same for me."
Cons: "Small CRJ, so seats were smaller as expected. Short flight though."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours due to a maintenance issue"
Pros: "Only 5 1/2 hours"
Cons: "It wasn't ANA!"
Pros: "Sadly, I am unable to find anything positive to say, aside from one customer service agent at LAX of the 7 I dealt with"
Cons: "The lack of accountability. Rude staff. The TSA was even more welcoming. Any time I had a question, I was pawned off to another agent, who would ignore me. I had to walk back and forth from gate to gate and was charged $310 for luggage."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "In a decade of travel I've had three lost bags. Two of which were Air Canada. So I'm going to avoid them."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I am a small person, 5ft 4in 110lbs. The seats are not comfortable and very cramped."
Cons: "Flight turned out to be 3 hours total instead of 1 1/4 hrs because of delays at both ends"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Cabin crew were a little bit edgy. Not as pleasant as others on similar route."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac in Reno for half an hour because of flight control delay from SFO."
Pros: "At least we didn't crash and die"
Cons: "I've flown with United before, and I've only had nothing but trouble. Decided to give them one last try, since their flights were a few bucks cheaper. Big mistake. They canceled my return flight last minute, and scheduled a new one over 24 hours later. Thus causing me to have to book a hotel last minute, as well as now being AWOL, since my Leave paperwork only lasted until my return date. Had to explain to the chief why I won't be at formation. I'm saving myself the trouble and never flying united again, even if I have to spend more money. United isn't even reimbursing me for the hotel. They basically told me to go f**k myself and file a complaint. They can eat a d**k."
Cons: "Every flight delayed 2 hours plus"
Cons: "I would know, my flight was delayed and my connection left early. I will never fly united again"
Cons: "Tight uncomfortable seating"
Pros: "Flight out of Reno was delayed due to congestion / back up at LAX. Ground staff patiently helped all passengers reschedule connecting flights / explain options."
Pros: "It was quick but full"
Pros: "The staff was great."
Cons: "Not necessarily their fault, but there was a lot of turbulence and at one point I hit my head pretty hard. Puddle jumpers are never for tall people. I do wish they made them just a bit more comfortable to walk through."
Cons: "The tv broke"
Cons: "Airplane went to the wrong airport and caused 3 hour delay . Missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "One flight, we sat next to ssomeone with a cat in her lap that threw up and pooped the whole time. The second flight a drunk man yelled the whole flight."
Cons: "No food. Horrible service"
Pros: "The courteous ticket agent at the counter in Reno-that's all."
Cons: "Getting stuck, having to change plans. SUCKS!"
Cons: "Flying in general"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable ride. Now I know what dinners feel like. Recently flew Delta and didn't notice discomfort like this."
Pros: "I was on time. I liked the view."
Cons: "I don't like when they leave me at the gate in my wheelchair. I don't like it even more when they take the wheelchair. I feel really uneasy when I am left at the gate. So I have the wheelchair pusher let someone know from the gate that I am there and will need assistance. Once again being sexually assaulted going through the metal detectors. Outside of being foreign most of the United employees seem like complete morons. Also there was that same bag in front of me. So my legroom was restricted."
Pros: "It got me to Boston!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats!"
Pros: "It got me to boston, the pilot etc did a great job"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, even in Economy plus"
Cons: "The crew was rude especially the male attendant in the business class , the seats looked as if they will break anytime and entertainment doesn't really work"
Cons: "Our flights were all cancelled or delayed and they gave us nothing to apologize. We lost 2 whole days of vacation and the cost of our rooms. All of the customer service people were rude. One lady in particular was so rude I had to walk away from the desk. The movie on the plane skipped and was unwatchable. I hate this airline and would pay more to fly another one."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 5 hours and then cancelled. This delayed my trip with family to Missouri and inconvenienced many people. On top of that, due to cancellation had to stay in hotel without my luggage and my pills that I have to take daily. Worst experience ever!! I need compensation for all this mess!!!!"
Pros: "It was a quiet and smooth ride."
Pros: "Did everything you scheduled and nice crew."
Cons: "On the 3 hour and 18 minute trip to NY in the coach section the seats have hard plastic armrests and a paded armrest would make your airline the cats meow. Give the coach section a little comfort please."
Cons: "The flight was over one hour late in leaving and while I appreciate that is beyond the control of the flight crew, one steward was quite rude as we were quickly trying to board as she prioritized serving the first class cabin rather than get us all on the plane. At the very least she could have used commonly acceptable language such as "please, thank you and excuse me" but rather chose to use "wait". As some of us where desperate to make a tight connection in SF, focusing on getting people on board and the plane off the ground should have been the crew focus."
Cons: "I had no indication that my flight was actually with united and not air canada. I almost missed my flight as a result. Was incredibly stressful."
Pros: "Everything worked. Smooth process. But online check in didn't work well for us."
Cons: "Online check-in."
Cons: "The crew workers attitude"
Cons: "Late take off and had to wait for ground crew when landed"
Cons: "Entertainment was announced, yet nothing came up when I connected with the United app."
Pros: "Got delayed on my first flight, missed my other connections, had an 8 hr layover and almost 24 hr trip, rearranged my entire travel plan. Not united 's fault but not the best flight I've had either."
