Cons: "We were packed in during coronavirus. I am never flying American again. Profits over health"

Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."

Pros: "The boarding was fast."

Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow and we were director the wrong carousel."

Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."

Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"

Pros: "We left a few minutes early"

Pros: "Busy but kind stewardesses"
Cons: "Please offer another snack option besides carboard flavored pretzels."

Pros: "Love flying with AMERICAN AIRLINES."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Condescending staff, lackadaisical crew, pitiful excuses of why we were delayed."

Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."

Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"

Pros: "Very comfortable, affordable, nice staff! On time. Will fly AA again."

Pros: "Felt very quick, I supposed after a 15+ hour flight from Sydney."
Cons: "As always tight seats."

Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"

Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"
Cons: "The cookie"

Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."

Pros: "Nothing. Still waiting on New Years to see if AA get us back to MSP"

Cons: "Food in general"

Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Made me check my carry-on because they claimed the bones were full and they weren't. Not even close."

Pros: "Perfect quiet comfy flight"

Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and provided good service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Boarding process could be improved. Seems some people board out of sequence and it screws up the process of stowing luggage and getting to your assigned seat. These same people bring in large over sized bags that will not fit in the above compartment or underneath the seat. Charging these individuals for these violations would deter them from engaging in this behavior. You might also want to add to your instructions how to disembark the plane, some individuals think their schedule is more important and rush up the isle in front of others who are trying to get their carry on luggage from the overhead compartment. Losers!!"

Cons: "Delayed!!"

Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."

Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Cons: "it was an hour late"

Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."

Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"

Cons: "The handle for the window shade was torn off"

Pros: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."

Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"

Cons: "Female attendant on 11/22 mpls>Dallas-Fort was very rude."

Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation."

Pros: "More spacious seating."
Cons: "All ofd the overhead bin carry on luggage left no room atg all by the time we boarded So hence the leg room was very crowded. When will the airlines stop the ridiculous over use and abuse of carry on unchecked bags?"

Pros: "Love the new entertainment on your own phone"
Cons: "Boarding took forever due to people's luggage in the overhead."

Pros: "Why because my flight was delayed did I get moved to the last boarding group???? I was group 2 on my original flight... I feel as though I should've kept that status. Subsequently... I was forced to check my roll on carry-on. I also was forced to wait at baggage claim in msp. I purposely traveled with carry-on items to avoid this issue! Not happy..."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Uneventful, except for a malfunctioning getaway in MSP which caused a very brief delay."

Cons: "Budget Rental, OMG 55 min wait in the parking lot before some would check myself and several other renters. NEVER use budget again. Its not that they were understaffed. I saw Budget employees standing around doing nothing. On a side note the inside of the car was coated with a white cleaning solution, windows were dirty, and windshield fluid was empty."

Cons: "It was freezing."

Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"

Pros: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."

Cons: "Two hour delay due to mechanical issue was a showstopper."

Pros: "crew was good"

Cons: "A passenger seated next to me threw up all over me as we landed. We were seated towards the back, we should of been let out first because when I say threw up, I mean he THREW UP!! And the hosts looked less than pleased and just handed us paper towels to clean it up. Just not very friendly."

Pros: "This one at least flew off the runway soon after closing its doora"

Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "There wasn’t much for social distancing. Was kind of disappointed."

Cons: "Transfer from international (T5) to T1 at O'Hare is very unpleasant..Generally O'Hare is a terrible airport."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and the airport employees and United Airlines staff were all very friendly. No complaints. Especially for the incredibly low price of the ticket. I feel like it was a really good deal."
Cons: "The tricky luggage policies. Those seem like they are deliberately being engineered to confuse the passengers into making expensive mistakes. Who travels with no luggage (other than me) anyhow?"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "EVERYTHING~"

Cons: "That no one told me about the mandatory $25 luggage fee even for a carry-on bag. Very dissatisfied."

Cons: "Se pusieron a darle mantenimiento al avión a la hora de salir cuando ya teníamos más de seis horas esperando el avión. Y esperamos una hora más ya sentados adentro. Eso estuvo fatal. Y sin comida de San José a Houston.. fataaal!"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and no one got beat up."

Pros: "Muy buen servicio"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly and quickly, (e.g. check in, baggage, seat and storage) Staff were helpful and friendly."

Pros: "First of all, the crew was amazing. I had just been traveling for about 20 hours and I had a seat towards the back of the economy section. After traveling that long, I was getting antsy to be at my destination, and I asked the gate agent if she could bump me to a row towards the front of economy- thankfully the plane wasn't full, and she was able to! It's the little things like that, that are what make me fly United. Also, the cabin crew on the flight was great! Of course, the economy section of the plane wasn't an ideal amount of space, but come on- it was an hour flight, and they did a good job of trying to spread people out so that the rows weren't packed."
Cons: "Boarding took a little longer because the plane was being cleaned. I believe they said the overnight flight got in a little late and they still had to clean the plane. We boarded late, but still got to our destination early. Negative turned into a positive- you can't beat that!"
