Pros: "Everything was great."

Cons: "I could not access the games the lady next to me, and others were playing. When I decided to watch movies the earphones were so small they kept falling out of my ears, and I am a small woman. It was a long flight from Tokyo to Dallas, and the lack of diversion became a major irritant."

Pros: "Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)"
Cons: "the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from."

Pros: "crew was miserable, they should retire, seems as if they do not like working with people, do not like their job. I have had many many flights with aa to know the difference"

Pros: "The crew did try to make us feel comfortable considering the air challenges"
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely hot and it took a extraordinary long time to resolve the issue. Dont understand why the aircraft was not checked prior to the flight so alternate plans could be made. Upon connecting the crew in the terminal and at the gate was not very accommodating. Very disappointed with American airlines and this experience"

Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice"

Pros: "Economy class seats better than UA."
Cons: "Economy class seats always have room for improvement."

Cons: "There was no one at the ticket kiosk located by TSA and no sign that said they would be back or to go to another booth. After waiting 10 minutes I️ went upstairs and found a chaotic mass of people checking in at the actual open kiosk. The check in process was not clearly defined and even after spending 30 minutes checking a bag I️ still had to care my checked bag down to another TSA check line. In their boarding area there were minimal phone chargers. The plane was small and no leg room and a rigid uncomfortable seat. Also the flight was at night and they kept the cabin lights on. That was super frustrating to an exhausted traveler who was trying to sleep."

Pros: "Smooth ride and free wine"

Pros: "courteous helpful & friendly crew and really great ground crew too"

Cons: "The fact that one could not book either an aisle or a window without paying significant sums is ridiculous - an additional $74 for a window seat and some were considerably more than that."

Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"
Cons: "No food offered on 1st leg, but it was on the menu card."

Pros: "Comfort and roominess of seat, after switching seats with another passenger who requested it to be closer to her boyfriend. Great take off and landing. Crew was attentive. Entertainment system at each seat was awesome."
Cons: "Although the food was better on my trip back to NY from Rome, it was not the best."

Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"

Pros: "The crew and captain were lovely and communicative."
Cons: "Our plane was very old and there were engine problems that kept us grounded for hours at JFK. I was terrified the entire time we were in the air that something might go wrong. Additionally, the air conditioner worked very poorly."

Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"

Cons: "3 hour delay waiting for pilots"

Cons: "I am so tired of people reclining back in my lap. It has happened for the last 3 times I have flown. The last flight the man reclined before we even took off and he was not instructed to put his seat up. There is no room for the tray table when the person reclines in front of you. I am sick of looking at fat bald heads during the entire flight. Wifi also sucks."

Cons: "significant delay in boarding; return to terminal to remove a drunk. Result was missed connection at DFW to London, resulting in missed connection to Munich; resulting in loss of my checked luggage"

Cons: "Interior noise level very high, was difficult to hear overhead public announcement. A woman passenger seated next to me coughed during practicLly entire flight and young child seated behind me was winnin/ crying for long time."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Easy changes to my first flight reservations to avoid catastrophe."
Cons: "I liked everything!"

Cons: "Didn't like the way the flight attendant attitude was to me. No politeness what so ever. Turbulence was scary, from the hurricane coming in. And they no complimentary drinks or snack because we landed go quickly. It makes no sense to even have an in service flight with it only being 45 min fight."

Pros: "Flight was good. No delays. No hassle"

Pros: "Price and schedule."
Cons: "Do not like how this or any airlines board passengers."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants vocally expressed how badly they hated heir jobs. Their service echoed their sentiments."

Cons: "I boarded in group 2. A lot of the overhead space was already full due to the large number of priority passengers. This led to people having to go to the back to find space for bags. That creates a lot of jams at the end of the flight. Also, younger passengers often try to rush out of the plane rather than waiting for their row. This should be stopped."

Pros: "The onboard crew was amazing. No problems there. The flight was decent."
Cons: "Both ways I had delayed trips. On my way back my first flight was running late. So arriving at my connecting airport I literally had to RUN clear across be airport and the attendant tells me I was a "no show". So I would have to wait and go on a different flight. The plane was still there. It was 25 minutes before take off time. And she rerouted me onto a different aircraft in which I had to RUN to the other side of the airport again. Only to find out this flight was delayed for 45 minutes. In which adding on to me already delayed flight. I understand some things are out of everyone's control. But the lady made me feel like I was just looking around in shops instead of being where I needed. Never again."

Pros: "The Jacksonville airport"
Cons: "The whole Reagan expierence from check in thru boarding the staff was rude and inefficient"

Cons: "It was a narrow, regional aircraft, so I was squeezed into my row next to a large man. My seat was the first in economy, so I was bumped everytime the beverage cart made the jog in the path from First Class. The flight attendant never apologized."

Pros: "Fast, easy"
Cons: "It was all good"

Cons: "More time was spent by cabin attendees selling food and drink items to one row than the rest of the passengers, making us wait for complementary water or other drinks . Really? There should be equal service for all passengers. Makes me wonder if there are incentives for the sale of extra items"

Pros: "Crew was very courteous and professional."

Pros: "There was only one flight attendant but he was very friendly and worked very hard"
Cons: "The checkin process is awful if you fly basic economy. This is the second time I have flown basic economy on United and you have to wait in line for 20 minutes to get a boarding pass and then have someone inspect the size of your personal item. You cannot check in and get a boarding pass online."

Cons: "Too long of a line to get in the air and a bit long to get to gate"

Pros: "Found a replacement aircraft and worked hard to get bags from original scheduled aircraft."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Long flight Very very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Timing and available seats"

Pros: "Smooth boarding, arrived to destination early and friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "????"

Pros: "Flight attendant decided this was a water-only flight. No particular reason, just lazy."

Pros: "Stewardess was pleasant. Left on time."

Cons: "WiFi did not work"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The Wi-Fi entertainment was a complete joke. This was the first time that I used it but the speed of the connection was intolerable. I was only able to watch 22 minutes of a movie on a 2 hour flight due to buffering. Also, the gate agent never announced my boarding group. It was only because of the monitor that I knew I could board."

Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Both airports what one expects when one hopes for a good flight."

Pros: "Flight was on-time; no delays; great crew! I also liked the fact there was a person at the gate to let us know where our connecting flight gate was - that was really helpful!"
Cons: "In flight entertainment (archived TV/Movies) not provided (other than through personal electronics); but that didn't bother me - flight between Santa Barbara and Denver isn't that long."

Cons: "I could not hear the flight attendant's announcements."

Cons: "A 1 hr Flight was delayed 2 Hours! Missed a special event because of it. Will never fly United again!"

Cons: "Flight was canceled and attendant very unhelpful"

Pros: "My flight was delayed multiple and had to get a taxi to LAX which we even missed that flight because the gate attendants waited so late to make a decision. We are still traveling as we speak and are looking to arrive in Raleigh after 3pm. Which is 8 hours later than our orginal flight."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not asked for drinks"

Cons: "Missed both my connections"

Pros: "???"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because of "weather" so no financial liability for keeping me in Chicago for an extra day - Flights going in and out like crazy!!! As far as I am concerned, United are big fat liars."

Pros: "economy is so cramped! It really should not be legal. Any flight at 5:30 AM should give people more than a cookie. All airport food shops are closed at that hour."
Cons: "Why is every connecting flight in Denver located in a different terminal and at the farthest gate? It's always a sprint to make the flight. I got singled out for a complete pat down. I was wearing light summer clothing. I'm 65 years old. It makes no sense. Those machines need recalibrsting."

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Everything went very well"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "on time"
Cons: "so uncomfortable seating. united website wofirst offered us $200.00 each because flight was overbooked.we declined. united would not let us check in online due to having no bags. we had to go to airport desk who then sent us to kiosk. we used the kiosk and machine said we had to talk to an agent, who inturn had to see the see the size of our bags. (she was miserable). then she printed our a boarding pass without seat assignment. we then had to go to gate agent who told us we had to wait a couple of minutes. we returned to the gate agent who again said we had to wait .(she was miserable too!!) all the while, for 2 days, we thought of that poor man assaulted on the united flight as they forced him out of his seat and off the plane. was this going to happen to us??? we sat and watched many many crew members board, crew that did not work on the flight. finally we were given out boarding pass with a seat assignment . HATE UNITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Quick hop to San Fran"
Cons: "Such a tiny plane! Carryons have to go in the hold. Any delay and you will miss your connection. Best is to check all luggage through and only bring an under seat bag on board."

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long taxi to terminal at LAX"

Pros: "Flight staff was fantastic!"

Pros: "The pilot was friendly and made an effort to keep us informed"
Cons: "Same as the previous flight, but the space between the seats doesn't give room to climb over two people to go to the lavatory. Also, SLC said they would send the message ahead notifying Houston and JAX that I needed wheelchair assistance, but I had to request it and wait at each location ."

Cons: "A small bag of small pretzel mix was tasty, but there used to be more."

Pros: "Quick and friendly service. No lines through TSA"

Pros: "No big incident, was offered a small bag of pretzels, complimentary."
Cons: "Seats have uncomfortably small spacing."

Pros: "Always a good fight, very short."

Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Cramped quarters. Having to pay for entertainment. I didn't. Pretzels were only food offered. I'm gluten free, so pretzels a no-no. I bring my own bag of walnuts, anyway."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too many delays, nothing was offered. Nothing was given or comp; Food, water, bags, seat upgrades, not flying untied again"

Pros: "It's was a straight threw flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed on the way there and on the way back. I checked the flights to see if they where running on time they said they where. Then I'm told the flight was delayed first 15 min then an hour. The Flight back was even worse the flight was suppose to leave Saint Louis at 3:30 to Newark was delayed 2hours and 50 minutes I checked the flight status said it was going to be on time. If I had know it wasn't going to be on time My son wouldn't have had to wait at the air port as long as He did"

Pros: "Crew on board was very good. Also Had a connection in Houston and ground crew was very helpful. I needed a wheelchair and it was right there and would have missed the connection if I had to walk"
Cons: "Seats to tight. Person in front put his seat back the whole flight. Very"

Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "The seating space to compact. And too many delays on all my flights from Friday and Sunday."

Pros: "again the crew was great."
Cons: "nothing, it was a very smooth flight."

Pros: "Stewardess was extremely rude"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight UA 6270 was initially delayed due to incoming plane delayed for weather. After boarding 2 planes at IAD, we were told after 5 + hrs that the flight to JAX was cancelled. UA Customer Service Agent was slow and not well trained. Other passengers were easily and promptly placed on other flights (UA & other airlines)...we were told that the next available UA flight from IAD to JAX was more than 24 hrs wait. Eventually placed on a UA Flt to CLT at 11 PM. Upon arrival in CLT, we asked the gate Agent for assistance on a Voucher because we had to stay overnight in CLT...we were told that the IAD Agent did not designate us as eligible for a voucher and yet, people next to us flying coach were given a voucher. The Gentleman Agent at our arrival gate was trying to help us but his Madam Supervisor was arrogant and unwilling to help. In an exasperated tone, I asked both individuals if flying First Class would help us get a voucher and her arrogant answer was "do you want me to call the police?" Obviously we left for our Marriott Hotel which was a wonderful customer service experience. Plus our UA Flt from IAD to CLT placed us in Coach (is a refund coming???) We paid for 1st Class for our 12/22 flight and our 12/26 flight. After 3 hrs in a Marriott in CLT we took an AA Flt from CLT to JAX. Also, the UA communication on the status of our baggage was unclear and misleading. Plan to fly American or Delta for future travel."

Pros: "A little late leaving the airport but it made us feel like they checked the plane well"

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight it was a good flight. The crew was friendly and very polite. Broading went very well. We actually got there about 15 minutes early. I would definitely fly again with them"
Cons: "In all honesty there wasn't much I didn't like everything went good and easy so like I said there wasn't much I did not like about it"

Pros: "Adequate work-around by an alert and helpful United Customer Service rep in LAX."
Cons: "We had to take this flight rather than a direct from LAX to SBA after missing our scheduled flight sitting on the tarmac for an HOUR waiting for our terminal to be vacated by an international flight with "mechanical problems." Four extra hours in transit!"

Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"

Cons: "The most unpleasant crew we have ever had in our flying lives. Rude, condescending, treating passengers as if we are not human. Lufthansa should carefully examine their customer treatment training."

Pros: "Flight once in the air went well. Service was fine/uneventful"
Cons: "Many delays and flight changes. Swap from 1 overlay of an hour to 3 overlays of about 5 hours. Really makes planning trip post flight travel a pain"

Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Shitty seats was very uncomfortable probably won't fly United just because of that... Delta has a lot more comfortable seats"

Pros: "Never got on"
Cons: "Never had a chance to find out if I would like it or not."
