Cons: "Is not the airline fault. Is thanksgiving weekend. The boarding was extremely slow because So many wheelchairs, . The weather and Chicago airport doesn’t help neither. The capitan take a time to go out and explain what we had to expect. That was a plus. Still for us is our #1 choice"
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."

Cons: "Your seats are small and you never turn the fasten seatbelt light off"
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Pros: "Arrived 11 minutes early, courteous staff, biscoff cookies. Great price."
Cons: "They pushed the stupid credit card again with its annual fee and miles BS."
Pros: "I had enough legroom. Airplane arrived a bit early to destination."

One of my pet peeves: People boarded with out verification of their boarding pass location. By the time we boarded, 90% of the plane was loaded and we were in the middle. Luckily that had no impact but annoying bc people are trying to get their overhead bins before they run out, which they did."

Pros: "Free movies, and crew were helpful once we were in the air"

Pros: "All was good!!"
Cons: "A bit warm which is unusual."
Pros: "There was nothing that I liked."
Cons: "One half hour before boarding we learned there was a delay. Obviously, American Airlines knew way before this time of the delay. At 6:00 p.m we were told they were bringing another plane from the hanger. The plane showed up around 9:00 p.m ... must be a long trip from the hanger. Then we were told they are waiting on a rear flight crew from another flight. After getting the rear flight crew, we were told that the front flight crew "timed out" and they had to look for other pilots. Needles to say after arriving at West Palm Beach at 1:00 in the morning...about four hours late the passengers were all devastated. American could have orchestrated this so much better"
Cons: "Crew was rude."
Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."
Pros: "Quick boarding, no shuttle! Pilot very informative"
Cons: "We were never asked for beverage service.Also when arriving and exiting to retrieve our bags when congested with baggage no room to stand and wheelchairs all at once trying to exit up ramp.Very unorganized and chaotic."

Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Flight attendants vocally expressed how badly they hated heir jobs. Their service echoed their sentiments."
Cons: "Did not depart til 7AM THE NEXT DAY"
Pros: "Left on time and landed early."
Cons: "The seat seemed to be really old and could have been more comfortable. However I wouldn't change that for a flight leaving on time."
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."
Cons: "CCheck in process was horrible I only had a small bag which fit under the seat and yet I could not check in online or at the kiosk without somebody coming out to certify that my bag was indeed small very stupid and very cumbersome. I’ve been a United flyer for 30 years and this is the worst experien"
Pros: "On time, smooth and lots of cabin space for my carried on."
Cons: "United should have allowed the super-economy ticket holder to check in online get my boarding pass especially I didn’t have any bag to check in. I was almost late for my plane because counter assistance is needed in my case, while there was no counter for NO-bag check-in. The kiosk rejected my check-in as well as online check-in. It was confusing and frustrating; I felt like the United Airline did that on purpose to deter the super-economy ticket buyer. Please be aware of time to take to check in with NO BAG with Super-Economy ticket at EWR."
Pros: "Flight attendant decided this was a water-only flight. No particular reason, just lazy."
Pros: "It was a satisfying experience with United Airline from ABE shuttle bus ride (I said Shuttle) to EWR, and short plane ride to PBI. Excellent food selections at terminal C."
Cons: "Too bad the DD at the terminal didn’t accept ordering via DD App."
Cons: "I could not hear the flight attendant's announcements."

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: "we were on time, and the crew was nice."
Cons: "Boarding goes from the front of the plane to the back. When you're sitting towards the back, it's not ideal to have to trip over fellow passengers who are already seated in the front. Why not board from the back to the front like other airlines?"
Cons: "Missed both my connections"
Pros: "When i initially bought my round trip tickets. I chose the seating assignments for my boyfriend and i. When i got to PBI to check in, computer showed we did not have seats. When i questioned the ticket agent, she replied, "it didn't matter when you purchased tickets and it doesn't matter if you chose your seats, you can be bumped at any time". ..so after everyone boarded, then turns out my bf and i can't sit together, we ended up 5 rows from eachother, and we both have anxiety from flying. I am very disappointed with United Airlines, and will do my best not to book with them again. NOT THE FRIENDLY SKIES."
Cons: "Our plane arrived late causing a 20 minute delay, and then we sat at the gate for a very long time after boarding, which ended up in a full hour delay getting out of Newark."
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: "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: "Courteous and no delays"
Pros: "United club in terminal A."
Cons: "Flight delays. 2:21 delayed until 3:33 delayed until 5:55 delayed until 6:15pm. Too many excuses. Plane late to arrive. Mechanical maintenance And then the plane was practically empty. So I am thinking. Could these delays be a result of not enough passengers to fill plane and so let's delay and make excuses and get as many passengers on one plane. Hmmmm. Get it together guys!"
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: "Staff on and off plane were pleasant and went out of their way to accommodate."

Cons: "Entertainment was close to none."
Pros: "Timing...on time"
Cons: "Staff were immature , unprofessional and not customer service oriented at all."
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!"
Cons: "The gate was so small there was not enough seating for the number of passengers. That coupled with the flight delay made for a bad experience at the airport."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked. Seats are very small. Snacks were ridiculously small."
Pros: "Staff was very nice"
Cons: "Seats are very small. Felt like the person next to me was practically sitting on top of me."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and accommodating. Flight was as smooth as glass; great on time for departure and arrival."
Cons: "Did not give senior citizens who needed it any extra time to board; only disabled people. Free snack portion was extra stingy. Other airlines we fly moffer more than one tiny package! One of our party had a seat (aisle) that he could not move in once seated. Free entertainment was very stingy! Other airlines offer much more free entertainment in the way of TV."
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."
Cons: "Sat on plane over an hour before take off, no explaination provided."
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: "The convenience of flying from a small airport more than compensates for the fact that it is a smaller plane. Because it is a small plane, the service is much more adroit and responsive."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "At least they were able to get us on the next flight."
Cons: "Security lines at Newark took us an hour and 45 minutes so we missed our flight. The lines were crazy and there was no security. People were cutting ahead and fighting. It was like survival of the fittest. Then when we got rebooked the boarding passes wouldn't work and we had to be last on the plane. The male flight attendant was rude even to my 7 and 10 year old who sat alone because there were no seats together. My 7 year old didn't know what tray table in the upright position meant and the attendant was giving him a hard time instead of just helping him."
Pros: "Nothing, due to my flights getting delayed thanks to United, I missed my flight to south bend and then told them to get my luggage because I was getting picked up by n Chicago. United then sent my luggage to south bend after I spoke with 3 United customer care agents and luggage agents and I wanted almost 2 hrs for my luggage. I paid 1200 for my ticket to get to my grandpas funeral and everything went wrong that possibly could"
Cons: "The flight was over two hours delayed and every twenty minutes we found out it was delayed another 30 minutes. The crew was terrible. There was no beverage service, and when I asked for a blanket at the beginning of the flight the crew didn't give it to me for over 2 hours. The crew was also very rude in general. There was no entertainment of any kind. The pilots kept pushing back the time we were taking off every 15 minutes and kept changing the arrival time drastically. Overall, horrendous experience."
Pros: "The service was awesome!"
