Cons: "American changed our seats to back of plane. No explanation."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice and tried to make our long delay tolerable"

Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Pros: "Had no problems. Everything went smoothly thank God."
Pros: "The free movies were a generous provision. The American Airlines ad was cool. The screen to trace the flight geographically was neat, as were the details about height, temperature, time until landing, and so forth. The service people were nice."

Pros: "Wheelchair was ready in La Guardia airport, but transfer from gate C to gate B had impossible stairs or shuttle outside. This option required another security check which was terrible. TSA personnel was rude and incompetent. In the end there was no need for such scrutiny and we were released, but the emotional impact lasted for hours."
Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
Cons: "Horrible - Flight was diverted to IAD for no legitimate reason. Rebooked out of DCA with no travel vouchers. Most likely never booking with American Airlines again."

Pros: "The price was fair and the flights were on time."
Cons: "Bags cost extra, food cost extra, seats cost extra. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me the entire flight (two exit row seats were empty) and there was no way to move that provided comfort. The overhead bins were full before half of the passengers boarded. The crew was polite, but not kind."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and i had a great seat."
Cons: "It wasnt a long flight so there was no entertainment and minimal food."
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: "Limited overhead bag storage. Gates changed to more crowded area. Felt like we were being herded onto the plane. Hurry up, etc. clear the aisles that sort of thing."

Cons: "Delayed flight No food/drink service offered"
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: "Seats are uncomfortable. Seats are too close together, not wide enough, to short, no knee room."
Pros: "too many gate changes and delays"
Pros: "Flight was late. Sat on Tarmac for 30 minutes at end of flight with no gate to exit."
Cons: "Why can't airplanes be designed with proper toilets that have enough room to accommodate human beings and don't stink up the main cabin?"
Pros: "Good staff"
Cons: "Both flights delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, first because we had to wait forever for fuel. It was really hot on the plane while we waited. It would have been better to wait for the plane to be fueled, or at least started fueling, before boarding. Then we sat and waited in the backed up line for takeoff. It was miserably hot."
Cons: "The flight attendant forgot to serve me."
Pros: "flight attendants were outstanding and very nice. Pilot was great as well and even thought we were delayed in Houston for a fuel sensor for 45 mins. He was still able to get us into Pittsburgh at a decent time. Was very happy with this flight."
Cons: "needed more leg room."
Pros: "Flight crew was great, flight was easy, aside from a little turbulence"
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!"
Pros: "Little to add."
Cons: "The plane was delayed incoming. Then boarding was interminably long because of overbooking and no overhead room for luggage. It took precious time to load passengers 1 group at a time while bags were checked. Once airborne I saw I only had 10 minutes or less to make my connection in Newark, which I inevitably missed. Poorly scheduled. Many passengers missed connections. It would have been much quicker and easier to advise passengers to check bags at the gate BEFORE the plane arrived knowing it was overbooked. I'm very disappointed in how the entire boarding was handled given the time constraints."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats barely recline. No leg room"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, even if they were dealing with travelers who were cranky about it being so late."
Cons: "Twelve hours before the flight and they already knew that the flight would be delayed due to the inbound plane being later. One flight earlier in the day caused a delay for the rest of the day. So, our flight was three hours late in boarding, putting us into the final destination at 2:15 AM. Not cool, especially when travelling with children."
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight slept through the flight"
Cons: "The delay of the flight"
Cons: "do not see how the process is helped at all with those "lines or zones" Still seems like people get clogged up and takes too long to get boarded."
Pros: "Got to travel JetBlue for the first time which demonstrated the way an airline should treat its passengers."
Cons: "Never got on the United flight as United's inefficiency AGAIN caused significant delays! Still awaiting the reimbursement (or even communication) I was promised."
Pros: "the crew on the plane was pleasant and helpful. the pilot was very nice as well with made the flight smooth and delightful"
Cons: "we were not able to check in at the kiosk, it was saying that we need further assistance but wasn't giving any reason, nobody could help us with it. we were directed to different stands 3 times were people would just tell us they don't know what to do. the lines everywhere were extremely long with only 1 person working, the lady came up to the line at some point and stating assisting people in line starting from the back end of the line. That was very frustrating. she finally got to us, asked us to come up to the kiosk with her, wasn't been able to help us and then put us back in the end of the line! The lady who was able to help us in the end just said "it was just disconnected." I have no idea what it means but considering that on our way in we had to be on "standby" because the flight was overbooked. the total impressing from United is very poor."
Cons: "Broken Restrooms"
Pros: "The pilot was great. The smoothest take off and landing on the San Fran to Pittsburgh flight"
Cons: "The biggest problem I had was that the gate was changed and I wasn't notified. So I had to go from Concourse A to C, then back to A. Thankfully, I gave myself plenty of time and everyone was helpful."
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."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "1st time flying United and was truly impressed. They were timely and friendly. I might have just found my new favorite airline."
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: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I shouldn't have had to pay to check a carry-on because the first flight was delayed."
Cons: "Will absolutely pay extra to never fly United ever again"
Pros: "Nothing flight got canceled and they couldn't even get me out the same day .. Due to there Maintnence issue most horrible expierence"
Cons: "Everything ruined my boyfriends bday with there Maintnence problem"
Cons: "The wifi onboard was broken. There were no t.v. sets to watch."
Pros: "Short flight so no need for food or entertainment, but the roomy seats were amazing after a long day of flying"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "What a difference a plane makes. Traveling on the embraer plane versus the CRJ700 is night and day. I can't believe that the price is the same for these flights! There is entertainment available inflight. There is more room overhead, more room in the aisle, two bathrooms, on and on...this flight was so much better. I will make sure that I never book on the CRJ700 flight to Houston again if I can avoid it!"
Cons: "The flight attendant in first class didn't have the best attitude but it was ok."
Cons: "Good -- but my flight from Pittsburgh to STL was not so good. My flight was delayed HOURS. I was supposed to get to my destination by 10pm. I did not get there until 1am. I was so so tired and cold sitting in the airport. I felt like we would never leave. That was definitely a disappointment."
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after being delayed for over 2 hours for mechanical issues. Gate agent was not overwhelmingly helpful or understanding to people's frustrations during the delay and didn't go out of her way to try to help. Customer Service was helpful and able to rebook and provide overnight hotel accommodations, but it was a very slow process that clearly frustrated some customers even more. Clearly not anyone's fault, but still frustrating and not a great flying experience."
Pros: "Some movies to choose from, plenty of good action and drama choices."
Pros: "They have a snack and a drink on such a short flight."
Cons: "No leg room or entertainment. Receiving baggage after the flight took 15 min (carry-on baggage)"
Cons: "We were diverted from Pittsburgh because of fog. Other flights landed shortly thereafter from other airlines which was frustrating, but a short delay did not ruin the day. We landed instead at Dulles. After sitting and waiting for hours we were finally all put back on the plane. Then we taxied out before the pilot told us they were over their hours or something along those lines and couldn't submit the paperwork necessary to take off. We went back to the gate and were told to wait some more in case there were more pilots. No more pilots came. No more flights were available. Instead we all hovered either around the gate desk or the customer service desk where we were told we couldn't be helped. We were instead forced to pile onto buses nearly 5 hours after we had landed at the wrong airport. We then spent another 6 hours on the road driving to Pittsburgh on a bus that was crowded and hot because the air conditioning kept failing. Because of some fog and a lot of incompetence, I arrived in Pittsburgh over 12 hours after I was supposed to. My trip in total lasted 20 hours from my flight in Seattle taking off. I missed an important event for the wedding that weekend, which was upsetting given the distance I had to travel and the amount of extra time I had scheduled in for myself, but the way we were treated was worse. There was no positive communication. Nobody knew anything. We were clearly an inconvenience that nobody knew what to do with so they just kept trying to push us off to the next person. It was infuriating and unacceptable I will never fly United again if I can possibly help it."
Pros: "We didn't have those annoying corrals of groups and we were called by our groups so it made the boarding VERY easy and civilized."
Cons: "I suggest on these surveys to have a Non-applicable section for food/entertainment as many of the flights don't offer these."
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"
Pros: "Short flight, the express plane had more leg room than the regular plane."
Cons: "VERY DISORGANIZED in Dulles. Flight was delayed because we were waiting for a pilot?? Then one happens to show up? Sounded a little sketchy..."
Cons: "Flight delayed and I had to literally run to the next flight"
Pros: "Everything! My grandparents needed special assistance with wheelchair and the crew was very helpful!"
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew, flight was at our destination early."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical problems, sat on aircraft to long before decision was made to change aircraft,multiple changes in gate which lead to long walks across airport. Should get some sort of refund for a lot of frustration and waiting"
Pros: "40 minute delay to swap a crew from the next gate over due to poor scheduling of total staff flight hours."
Cons: "crew was rude, boarding and waiting were horrible"
Cons: "There was no wifi no entertainment!!!!!!! This was a later flight that I had to be on and they showed no effort of making anyone feel comfortable even though we were on a late flight!!! Never booking united again!!!!!"
Cons: "We were in the last row and was very noisey. The stewards talked and laughed which made it difficult to rest."
Pros: "no food in first class that what I get for 5hours in texas with out my O2"
Pros: "The booking was last minute so I paid a lot for the ticket but it was a good flight. Thanks."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours due to a light malfunction."
Pros: "Never happen."
Cons: "Didn't even get to take the flight. They were overbooked and instead of putting us on a different flight, shipped us via cab to a different airport in a different state 1.5 hrs away. No apology, no travel voucher, NOTHING!! Then on the way home everything was canceled because of the storms and I sat on hold for 5 hrs only to get hung up on. I had to go to the airport 3 days in a row to finally get a flight home, even though my destination and an alternate were not affected by the storm. I'll never fly united again"
Cons: "It was cancelled!"
