Delayed 4 hours in Chicago.
Pros: "Great having every set have its own screen and charging port"
Cons: "Not to be an hour delayed and make half the plane miss their connections!"
Cons: "Gate agent was cold rude and incompetent"
Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."
Cons: "Lack of social distancing with American Airlines"
Pros: "Only masked picking up trash during pandemic - difficult to rate crew"
Cons: "Organized exit vs. usual crowded chaos of passengers in a hurry"
Cons: "American Airlines has to be the worst airlines there is. It never fails that they try I Cath someone and try to pretend that their carry-on bagIs too big. They have this tiny little frame no reasonable carry-on could possibly fit into. Over and over again I see people including myself and my traveling companion’s having to check their carry-on bag because their “too big” this is nonsense. These are standard size bags. It’s more than enough space on board the plane. In a way in which the gate check individuals handle this interaction is a palling you’re insulting demanding and don’t give you a chance to rearrange your luggage so I can go into their absurd dimensions"
Cons: "I wish there were charging ports so I could charge my device on such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was almost on time."
Cons: "The power outlet at my seat didn't work. The baggage was delivered to the wrong carousel at DFW. The seats are TOO DAMN SMALL."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "Fast boarding and efficient, friendly crew. I paid for an upgraded economy seat, which had more legroom and fit my body (more or less)."
Cons: "AA's seats seem to have gotten thinner in recent years, so I find them less comfortable. There's no in-flight entertainment; you have to download the airline's flight app on your device and stream from there."
Cons: "Flight was 90 mins late departing"
Cons: "The wifi didn't work at all"
Pros: "last minute upgrade was nice, made sleeping much nicer. food was good, flight uneventful which is always a good thing."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants had an attitude and we not very personable to others. Just doing their job, ticking off the boxes. One was very kind, the others not so much."
Cons: "I was forced to check my bag bc the plane was “full” but when I got on there were more than 5 completely empty overhead bins. So now I’m waiting in baggage claim, after an already delayed flight, when there was absolutely plenty of room on board for my bag (which was of acceptable size)."
Pros: "Seats were nice, flight was efficient, arrived early."
Cons: "Gate agent spoke so ridiculously fast and swallowed so many sounds that it was virtually impossible to understand most of what he was saying. Most importantly we all missed that our roll-on bags wouldn’t fight in the overhead bins. As a result many people pulled their bags on and fought and struggled to force their luggage above, only to give up. The on-board agents recognized early the problem and then proceeded to allow many other passengers to stroll by them with their large roll-on bags, only to delay the boarding process and frustrate everyone. When making their safety announcement the flight attendant was clearly competing for fastest speaking human and rushed through at blazing speeds. In all my 30+ years of travel, I’ve never heard anything like it."
Pros: "Nothing it totally messed us up"
Cons: "We missed our 1night in Rome-had to go home and come back the next day-we missed our train tickets and hotel in Rome and it made our trip a lot shorter!"
Pros: "I liked the fact that, my flight was miraculously on time leaving salt lake city"
Cons: "I don’t like, however, the fact that 3 of the last 5 times I’ve flown American round trip midland tx to Salt Lake City I have missed my connecting flight on the way back due to no fault of my own. I have flown this trip once a month for the past six months and have to do it two more times before December. American sucks"
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable! Too close together"
Pros: "Time was good. Ground service was good. In-flight was okay. Because I love Cathay so much I took a 3 hour longer trip through LA (vs. Seattle) and paid more. But I was berating myself for that. But the flight back was Cathay service at its finest."
Cons: "We were not told our passports needed to have an expiration past six months of travel even though we got back before the expiration. We entered our passport info including our expiration dates and we’re given no warning. We even had our boarding passes prior to showing up at the airport. We will not use Kayak in the future and will book direct through the airline moving forward."
Cons: "My flight was 7:45AM from JFK to ANU I got into airport at 6:30AM But AA refused to me take on board. They said flight gate is closed."
Cons: "Snacks were okay, nothing to shout about. Streaming movies is still of a mystery to me, not an intuitive experience in any sense of the word. the sites AA provides to answer one's questions don't give any real guidance on 'how', just state what, kept pointing me to the app which doesn't have any menu item to view movies. took me well over ten minutes to find any helpful information."
Pros: "Cabin crew was excellent."
Cons: "Deplaning at an inconvenient remote terminal with unattractive and minimal facilities, which involved waiting in a long line for a series of buses for transport to the main terminal. Arrival at the main terminal required climbing a flight of stairs. No in-flight food service offered except a choice between one cookie or one cracker."
Pros: "Turbulence most of the way. The breakfast homlet was horrible."
Cons: "Change the food. Better headsets in business class. The seats could be updates in business class."
Cons: "I am very frustrated that a single part could not be located in the early afternoon to allow the plane to fly. I will be late again for work and it seems to be American Airlines and not Delta that has all the delays or is late."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight got delayed from salt lake and we had to spend a day in Charlotte before another flight came"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Not enough snow in salt lake"
Pros: "The flight was lovely from beginning to end. There were no issues."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the information was not displayed on the FIDS until the aircraft arrived at the gate"
Pros: "I went to check in for my flight and was told that it changed to American Airlines. By the time I arrived to the gate it the flight was full and they wouldn't let me on. I want a refund."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Good in-flight service, comfortable first class seat."
Cons: "Arrival gate was remote from main terminal, requiring a crowded and disorganized wait for a bus to the main terminal and baggage claim. The extremely small overhead storage cabinets of the Canadair required many passengers to check normally acceptably sized carry-on bags after boarding and finding it impossible to fit. Waiting time for retrieving these on the ramp at the destination was excessive."
Pros: "Entertainment selection."
Pros: "Free movies and tv"
Cons: "The Three days it took to get 10 hours away horrible customer service no one was there to help us.30 people were stranded"
Pros: "They were so helpful as we checked in and checked our bags! :)"
Pros: "Comfort, snacks, boarding process"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "No entertainment without paying"
Pros: "Both American flights (on Airbus 321, I think) I've taken in the past two weeks had comfortable seating with great legroom. My knees were not knocking the seat in front of me! Seat width also comfortable. Not sure how I lucked up on both flights!"
Pros: "For tall people more room for the legs"
Cons: "The Seats aré very near"
Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "Thought the first row seating would provide extra leg room which the reservation page said it would and we paid extra for the seats - not so. it also felt quite claustrophobic with a panel within a short distance of our faces. We had upgraded for better seats but it turns out the seating wasn't better at all. The flight home in seats much further back were MUCH more comfortable. I'm thinking the airline shouldn't book the front seats by the panel as 'better' for the extra price as they were definitely not."
Pros: "Complimentary cocktail! Great selection of entertainment on our own personal screen."
Cons: "Boarding agent was abrupt"
Pros: "Courteous and professional crew"
Cons: "Delay taking off, due to technical issues with aircraft. Seat area is much too small for an adult."
Pros: "Snacks and entertainment"
Pros: "The planes were comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't get a boarding pass for my third flight."
Pros: "Completely satisfactory for my needs"
Pros: "Good pilot communications. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Very cramped quarters. Broken seat. Out of control heating system. Rude staff An hour wait for baggage."
Pros: "Everything went well. Great assistance because I can't walk far. They got me to my gate on time."
Cons: "Delayed plane on last leg of flight, over 1 hr."
Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "No open seats at all. Old cramped A319"
Pros: "The captain kept us informed about a delay."
Cons: "The seats are cramped"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew was not helpful, entertainment on screen was archaic and all but useless. Terrible leg room, no accommodation for carry on luggage and just generally in pleasant experience with united"
Pros: "the flight was scheduled 1h30"
Cons: "the seat comfort"
Pros: "The crew was polite"
Cons: "We got stopped waiting to pull up to the gate for over an hour. This on top of the flight being delayed. The TV screens didn't work and the flight tracker didn't work."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Better foods and free entertainment (movies..)"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment system was excellent."
Cons: "I don't like the boarding process, where there are so many "special" boarding sections that zone 3 only comes up after the first 200+ passengers have boarded."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and polite."
Cons: "No snack options. Only pretzels. Seat cushion very thin."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Plane made good time and both flights on time."
Cons: "Plane was 80+ degrees until after takeoff. My girlfriend complained unrelentingly about this on both legs until it was resolved. I don’t know my way around Houston airport but it seemed like we landed several kilometers from our connecting gate. Probably not something that could be avoided but aggravating nonetheless. Also I pooped on this flight and no one would have known except for the lady sitting in the back made a comment about how long I was in the lavatory (5-7 minutes?). Rude."
Pros: "Crew and employees were all great, could not have gone any better."
Cons: "For a three hour flight, entertainment was lacking. The fact that there are ONLY paid options was kind of a slap in the face. Even just providing some radio stations to listen to would have been acceptable as a free option"
Cons: "We were in First class and were served a yoghurt that had already been opened and oatmeal that was stone cold, I mean refrigerator cold. Also the in flight entertainment kept buffering so that it was basically unwatchable. United touts Polaris, but maybe they should concentrate on their current classes of service instead."
Pros: "Timely departure, comfortable airplane, decent food&drink offerings, my baggage arrived on time despite 2 layovers"
Pros: "They checked my. Bag"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment unless app was downloaded prior, small craft for duration of flight"
Pros: "Everything was wonderful"
Cons: "The trip was too long but it is what it is"
Cons: "No one is actually caring. They read a script without emotion this making the safety inspection a nuisance rather than informative. Southwest is much better st this."
Pros: "On the whole plane,my row was the only one with a vacant seat. I needed wheelchair assistance getting from check -in counter to the plane and the person who helped me could not have been nicer or more helpful."
Cons: "The savory pretzel snack was very skimpy and I could not drink their water because they only had Dasani which contains an ingredient that I am allergic to."
Pros: "We had 2 stops each way, I'm glad all of the gates were next to each other and our flights were on time."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "free entertainment"
Pros: "The food was surprisingly decent."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding was orderly, crew was reasonably nice."
Cons: "Comfort, food and entertainment (extra $$) is very mediocre."
Cons: "My flight out of traverse city was cancelled but I rebooked on a different airlines through united to be able to get to my destination in time for an event that day. It was a long process but I made it and really appreciated all the work the agent on the phone did for me. When I arrived at the airport they had my resvervation but no ticket... luckily we worked it out"
Cons: "I wish I could have gotten more beverage (water) during the flight. Very dry in the cabin but all-in-all, it was a pleasant experience."
Pros: "Stuck in SLC because of computer issues, was told that the flight to XNA was also delayed, wrong now stuck in Denver for another day. Hopefully we can get home tomorrow, now booked to Houston then to XNA as all united flights are sold out. . . Miserable service."
Cons: "Gate attendant was rude and prematurely gave my seat away before boarding was closed so My infant and I missed the original flight. Check in attendant was rude, picked up my bag stickers and when we disagreed on a military regulation he set the stickers down and walked away and did not assist me. Boarding was extremely disorganized and not enough room for carry on items. It was an aweful experience and I will not be traveling with united airlines ever again."
Cons: "The flight left 15 late due to the bags needing to be moved from below up to the cabin. With only a 45 minutes connecting time, this made us nervous. We did ultimately end up making the connection because they arrived/departed out of the same terminal. I'm not sure we would have made it otherwise. The crew was a bit loud and kept bumping people on the aisle as he made his way down with the cart. The seats were hard as a rock."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and I was very comfortable. I will fly United again."
Cons: "Those delays I mentioned."
Pros: "Tailwind got it all over faster. The flight crew was professional."
Cons: "I paid for the insurance just in case I needed to change my flight. Well I did need to change my flight to get a few more things done before returning home. The answer I recieved when I called was that I had to pay 600 dollars for the change and then file a claim for possible reimbursement. The whole round trip flight only cost $250."
Pros: "Nice attendants."
Cons: "Cancelled and rerouting of flights. Long waits in airports."
Pros: "I was scared until the young man who sat beside me helped me out. He was a military man . ."
Cons: "The bumpy ride! The take off and the landing ..."
Cons: "Luggage over bins should limit one bag per costumer ., passenger broading in group 4-5., space for one bag over their seat. ., and not be penalty because if broading group ,"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and a very smooth ride"
Cons: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Baggage didn't make next flight"
Pros: "Boarding Zones included seats throughout plane so it wasn't so bunched up when putting luggage away."
Cons: "Seats too close together and no TV's"
Cons: "Kayak did not confirm my seat. Was not able to get a flight. Called customer service and they told me to rebook. My card was charged twice. The airplane had faulted hardware. Waited in line for 2 hours to get a different flight. All flights to Phoenix were full. Didn't make the standby list. Couldn't make the rebook flight. Worst day ever Now, No one can give me a refund. mind you I took a day off from work this was a last minute. The reason this trip was so important to me is because my grandma is in the ICU. I hardly ever complain about any customer service experience. Overall to get a hold of customer service is awful."
Pros: "Everything was in time."
Cons: "Delay time boarding. Taxi time once landed"
Pros: "The crew was helpful to a family with a girl in a wheelchair."
Cons: "Tray table and windows were dirty. Don't care for the waffle cookie they serve."
Cons: "the older plane. not as much personal space per seat"
Pros: "The person sitting next to me was normal."
Cons: "The space was to small, flying makes me sick, my legs hurt, my back hurt and Didn't offer Dr. Pepper"
Cons: "Hours and comfort was horrible"
Pros: "Crew was personable. Free wifi entertainment with a good selection of movies broken down by genres as well as Satillite style radio. Plenty of leg and shoulder room: I'm 6'4" & weigh 280 with a 38" waist, so I notice these things"
Cons: "Snack was only a single mouthful of pretzels (note size comment above)."
Pros: "Staff were professional and alert to all concerns and potential threats."
Pros: "The United App"
Cons: "Downgraded plane that departed 1hr late, horrible turbulence, missed connection because 1hr late departure. Stood in customer service line for 2 hrs in vain because communication was bad. Had to pay an extra $72 for a hotel because my flight was rebooked for the next day."
Pros: "The crew. The booking experience and the check in were all very good to great. I liked the plane on the Houston to cle flight. A 737 I think"
Cons: "The small planes to spend the day in cle to Chicago to slc And the small plane to Houston. Did not eat or use entertainment. No not used answer avail"
Pros: "Nice to have free streaming of entertainment/movies."
Cons: "SLC to Houston couldn't connected to the advertised entertainment even after it was announced. Perhaps it wasn't activated? That said, very friendly crew; on time and comfortable flight."
Pros: "On time, boarded quickly, checked my carry on all the way through Tampa for me"
Pros: "Nothing. Due to weather delays, there should have been a much better approach to resolvong the problem. Customer service was horrible"
