I had work and responsabilities the next day. TThe scheduled trip was supposed to take off at 7:45. Boarding started late and was very slow. My bag fit the meassurements and still was forced to check it (which I did not want to do as I did not want to be waiting an hour for my bag at my arrival as I had work early the next day. In addition there was airplaine traffic as it was "rush hour" instead of flying at 7:45 we departed almost at 9pm!!!!

He just didn't seem to care at all about anything that was going around."
Pros: "Flight departed on time.our trip out there was disappointing , causing us to get there very late costing us money."
Cons: "Airline did not notify us that as of 10-15-16 the Samsung Note 7 phone could not be bought on the plane. Because my sister Phillip Mae had a meeting at 10am in Greensboro, N.C. she was forced to give her phone to American Airline."
Cons: "They wouldn't allow me to check my bag at the main gate so I had to go through security and check it at the boarding gate. Souvenirs were confiscated because the bag couldn't be check sooner.

Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Pros: "Left on time!"

Cons: "My son and I were scheduled to leave Providence to Philadelphia on Monday at 6:05. Flight went through a series of delays until we were finally informed that our flight would not make the flight departing Philly to SF. Rather than fly to Philly during the DNC, we decided to SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT IN PROVIDENCE and take the flight out the next day. This part of the trip caused me to lose a day of work and spend more money on a hotel and meals. This was very poor planning on your part since there were flights flying in and out of both places, but your company was short one aircraft that would have gotten my son and I home on time!!! This was my last flight on American Airlines and I will be sure to spread the word to my friends and family that you have become too unreliable!!"
Pros: "The plane broke in D.C. I had to rent a car to finish the last leg of my trip. They probably won't reimbursement me for either. I try never to book with AA, but it was last minute and I didn't have a choice."
Cons: "Stop saying sorry and just be better."
Cons: "What happened to complimentary snacks?!"
Pros: "I liked that the plane didn’t crash!"
Cons: "I don’t know, maybe having FOOD ON THE FLIGHT ACROSS THE COUNTRY INSTEAD OF JUST CANDY?"
Pros: "NOTHING!! I had to book them another flight thru another airline, because they had a delayed stating weather issues when it was nice and sunny so they couldn't make it on time. I will never trust United Airlines not for myself or any on my family members, nobody period!"

Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice. She tried to let one particular person off plane first so that he could run to catch his connecting flight"
Cons: "The gate people were horrible at explaining the delays and then trying to set up alternatives. Quick tip: offering "free water" when your flight is delayed 1.5hrs so several people will miss their flights is not enough."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours causing me to miss my connecting flight to Indianapolis. Went to the service desk to re-book, and nothing could be done to get me out in time. Customer service was not great. I was flying to see my daughter graduate, and the only time they could get me out was when the graduation started. No hotel vouchers were given for the delay either, so the airport bench ended up being the bed. So I ended up being stranded in Newark for an additional 8 hours to just miss her graduation."
Cons: "Plane seating was tight"
Pros: "I received an unexpected free upgrade to first class. Two thumbs up!"
Cons: "No complaints. Every aspect of the flight met or exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "One hour delay, no microphone to hear what the desk staff was actually announcing, desk staff were also completely unprofessional. Made my connecting flight by less than a minute thanks to SPRINTING through the airport because of the delay - a less able bodied person would not have made it. Overall ridiculous and dissappointing"
Cons: "The fligjht diidnt happen. I double booked the flight. But when I tried to adjust it I wasn't allowed to without crazy fees. This was after an agent told me that he would wave the fee. Their not on the same page and they do not honor what you're told."
Pros: "friendly staff"
Cons: "seat in last row of plane. no outlet under my seat for charging. listened to flight attendants conversation the whole time. in flight entertainment system was not working on whole plane and could use the in-app entertainment either since it was assuming we had a working infotainment system. seat would not recline"
Cons: "It was cancelled in the early AM, due to equipment failure"
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Baggage claim was extremely slow"
Pros: "Plane was filthy & disgusting! I asked the stewardess for a towel to wipe down my table that was covered in sticky gunk, she just handed me a Wet One. Passengers table next to me was the same. My checked was only 3 lb over the 50 lb limit. United actually made me take 3 pairs of dirty jeans out & carry them with me in a Target shopping bag! Ridiculous!"

They told me 45 min then gave me headphones witch I already had .... and said nothing for 3 hours about when we are ariveing or leaving or anything . Prob won't fly united or use kayak again ."
Pros: "Early arrivals"
Cons: "On the express smaller planes you have to gate check your rollarboard suitcase which is fine but if your in first class they dont have a separate tag from economy class so i got my bag last even tho i was in first."
Pros: "Econ Plus was nice. Flight was fine."
Cons: "GA called for all "people with disabilities" to board first. How about simply asking for people who need a little extra time...PWD's is a bit of a label that doesn't work for me. While we were boarding the white female FA made a snide comment that maybe passengers should not bring more than one bag. She was also rude to the other FA."
Pros: "Texted notifications of the many delays and changed gates until it finally left"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues AND a delayed crew"
Pros: "Nothing flight got canceled and they couldn't even get me out the same day .. Due to there Maintnence issue most horrible expierence"

Pros: "the snack pack was a good value"
Cons: "arriving plane was late so we got into OKC late"

Cons: "No leg room or entertainment. Receiving baggage after the flight took 15 min (carry-on baggage)"

Pros: "the crew handed out complimentary headsets which was nice"
Pros: "Everything! My grandparents needed special assistance with wheelchair and the crew was very helpful!"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Even though I checked in early I was not assigned a seat. I had to wait to see if people didn't show up to claim a seat. For a red eye it is difficult to notify family if you don't get on the flight because most likely they will be getting up early to pick you up at the airport. Luckily I got on the flight but the stress of waiting was tough. I was treated just as if I was on standby yet I purchased my flight ahead of time."
Cons: "Your email stated that my departure gate for my connection was B87. It was actually B80. There were no message boards in that area of airport (commuter planes). I missed my flight because of it. Luckily there was a van shuttle that I was able to catch but the ride was 4 hours in the night and cost an additional 80.00. I would like Kayak to reimburse me the 80.00 I had to pay extra. Thank you"
