Pros: "Front area had nice amount of leg room. Back was so tight i couldnt even reach my bag under the seat in front of me."
Cons: "$20 for wifi is a rip off!! Delta includes free wifi on international flights. Some prople need to work and paying for internet on an 8.5 hour trip was ridiculous. Food options were not that great either. Pasta was supposed to be vegetable pasta but no veggies to be found. Not healthy options."

Pros: "I had to buy new clothes after lost bag and since bag had been lost twice during my trip, I was reluctant to check the bag. It was of size to cram into my carry on so I did that, but American staff demonstrated concern, had a sense of humor and helped me get a comfortable seat to sort of take some of the sting away. All that was great of them I was aware of being in an upgraded seat. No complaints, but it stung a little because I was deeply aware of the reinforcement of class. The small, extra comforts were wonderful and I wish everyone had them while risking their lives together over the ocean - especially the extra room At times, on the way over I felt a claustrophobic panic. But to stay positive, they were kiind, sympathetic, funny, sweet. I appreciate them."
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Cons: "Because they canceled my flight and i had to buy another ticket for 380$ and after that I realized my chair was available and i took a picture. It was really bad and i never choose again American Airlines."

Pros: "Same size and capacity flight, my instrument was not an issue."

Cons: "Bag drop process at CDG was long and confusing, but the staff were doing all they could to help us get through it. Bravo to them. The food could have been a little healthier (a little too much of it was high in sugar)."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours- weather related, but at other destinations- so this flight had to wait to be rescheduled. Also they weren't able to give any idea when the flight would be boarding- they just kept sending text alerts that it was delayed another half hour and no updates were listed on the screens. When the flight finally left, after I had been waiting for over 5 hours, we were told that they would be flying low, so there would be no beverage service. It would be nice in these situations to simply have bottled water to pass out quickly, or make the announcement prior to boarding so people would be able to bring their own beverages."
Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."
Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."
Pros: "It was excellent!"
Pros: "American Airlines has alot more commodities than most"
Cons: "Alaska sold passengers to American"
Cons: "There was no entertainment option available in the plane we flew in."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and we couldn't get out until the next day. They did put us in a hotel and pay for our meals, so that was good, but it was still several hours in line and a big inconvenience. The $30 off coupon for a future Avianca flight is pointless since we live in the US and don't plan to be back in Peru anytime soon. I free ticket or at minimum an upgrad on any star alliance partner would have been appreciated."

Pros: "Person at the ticket desk was nice and helpful"

Cons: "Lots of empty seats but was not available seat choice options when checking in"
Pros: "Friendly staff Smooth ride On time"
Pros: "The service was ok"
Cons: "First when I was checking in I didn't know I only can check in 2 baggage so I had 2 baggage and a 32" TV that I couldn't my TV and at Tampa they took my carry on bag because is was full and I didn't wanna do that they wasn't professional so I'm not happy with my trip."
Pros: "Prices and service"
Cons: "Everything its perfect service"
Cons: "Ensure parents are being honest about the ages of their children. Couple next to me had a wailing, thrashing, kicking, screeching, punching 3 year old who should have had her own seat instead of sitting on her parent’s laps for the duration of the 5 hour flight."
Pros: "I have long legs. My seat a window exit seat had enough legroom so that I did not feel cramped"

Cons: "The experience was poor due to a flight delay that would have resulted in a missed connection. This resulted in a very negative effect because I won't be able to make an important business meeting."
Cons: "The flight departed over 3 hours late. Rather than communicating a realistic departure time, the flight was delayed 6 times in 20-40 minute intervals."
Cons: "I would have liked if the crew kept us a bit more in the loop about what's going on - I took a Southwest flight earlier the same day, and the crew all seemed to be having a lot more fun than the crew on United. Which is more likely more a management/structure issue of United than the crew themselves"

Pros: "Denver had about 2” of blowing snow but the flight in was good and the pilot and crew kept us up to date."

Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "The sweet wafer was a lot of empty calories."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "Told the gate attendant I was flying home for my dad's funeral and if there was anything they could do to move my seat from a middle seat to aisle seat he said not without charging me but I could ask when I boarded the plane. Once the doors were closing I asked the flight attendant if I could move up one row to an open aisle seat she said no not without charging me. I said there's no one in that whole row and I'm flying home for my dad's funeral and could they make an exception I would show them the obituary and funeral brochure if needed I just wanted some space. She got another gate attendant I explained the same thing and he said no. He said the seat will have to remain empty if I wasn't willing to pay for it. I told him r u serious? U r that inconsiderate and heartless as a company. I've already booked 2 flights w United and u can't make an exception as I was in tears he said no nothing. And walked off the flight. This airline is heartless and deserves all the bad publicity it's getting. Horrible horrible service. And the flight attendant Beth did nothing about it after he left."
