Pros: "Exit seat"
Cons: "Canceled flight after many hours butting was obvious it was. It going to happen from the start. Asked for a hotel and none offered but many others on same flight for a room from AA. Rebooked for the next day an airport an hour away from original destination and had to provide my own transportation to destination. Finally they lost my luggag."
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."
Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"
Pros: "Experienced a 4.5 hr delay to the destination. Family had to pick up grandson (Ibooked trip for him) after midnight in L.A. 2 hour flight delay coming back which pick up had to be re-arranged again by family. Family member flew to us next day via United without any issues. Dont book through this site or use American Airlines!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The fact that we didn't know we were supposed to go to American Airlines to acquire our boarding pass. A heads up would've been appreciated."
Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."
Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."
Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "1 hour delay turned into a 3 hour delay. We waited at the airport for more than 4 hours and could've used that time to explore Chicago instead of rushing to the airport only to board, de-plane, and then board again. No vegetarian options were given for food."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."
Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"
Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "While trying to get help with my boarding pass, the woman behind the counter was so rude and nasty. Yelled at me for being at her desk when another American employee took me there."
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"

Pros: "Other than the delay, it was your basic 1 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."
Pros: "Checkin was fast. Crew is always pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I chose to upgrade my seat and was charged but i couldnt see any difference between my seat and anyone elses. I dont understand how it works. Then I was refunded the upgrade amount..."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."

Cons: "Horrible bin space Sitting arrangement southwest has better system including free baggage"
Pros: "Plane staff friendly, timely flight, uneventful overall."
Cons: "Gate-side crew forced us to check a carry-on bag when there was plenty of space in the plane bins. No in-flight entertainment, old plane."
Pros: "The lay over wasn't bad at all had enough time to make it to my gate and get something to eat"
Cons: "Was scheduled to leave at 3:15pm didn't leave until 4:17pm"
Pros: "Everything very nice peaple"
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time."
Cons: "We went to the gate early and it was printed on our boarding passes. We left to get some food and came back and tried to board.

Cons: "N/A had to change my flight. :("
Cons: "The flight was fine but there was a 45 minute delay at baggage claim."
Pros: "Everything was fine once we got on the plane."
Cons: "United took our plane and gave it to another delayed flight, meaning they delayed us by over 4 hours. Didn’t take off until 12:30 am when we were supposed to have taken off at 7:55 pm."
Pros: "frequency of drink/food service. Appreciated the ice cream."
Cons: "Food was not good. chicken or pasta were the choices, we sampled both. Neither was good - some of the worst airplane food Ive had. On our return flight from Munich to Houston we had same choices but it was a different type of chicken - curry chicken - and that was excellent. I would recommend you serve the same thing on your Houston - Munich flights! Seat comfort (bottoms) not so good."
Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"
Cons: "Seats only marginally comfortable, weather delays caused us to leave very late (although I made my connections, many did not)."
Pros: "The direct TV was free on this leg of my trip"
Pros: "Can not think of anything"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Pros: "The flight was a head of schedule and very smooth."
Cons: "It was freezing cold. I was wearing a sweater and was freezing."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant, and the flight and landing were smooth."
Pros: "UA did a good job, but Houston International was closed off/on due to bad weather, so it was a mess."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the attendants courteous."
Cons: "However, the seats were so cramped, it was pretty miserable, even for just a 2 hour flight. With no snacks even offered because of turbulence, and no working wifi or seat back TVs, there was nothing to distract from how uncomfortable we all were. Plus, Austin's airport layout requires travelers to walk awfully far to get bags and then a rental car. Don't dare be disabled or feeling unwell--you'll never make it! Of course our gate was furthest from baggage claim, & someone's has to be. Nevertheless, it's a terrible layout, w/ pedestrians pushing through boarding queues and where others are lined-up to buy food."
Pros: "Easy enough"
Cons: "should have happened yesterday."
Pros: "Very comfortable plane. 2 seats on a side, 5 thumbs up."
Pros: "Everyone was great. A young lady on my Houston to Austin flight helped me find my seat. A young man on my NY to Houston flight was very friendly!!!"
Pros: "I liked how friendly the staff members were, and how informative the pilots were."
Cons: "The seating in the economy class is just horrendous. There is no acceptable reason for a person to pay $200, $300, or even $400.00 for a flight and have to be so uncomfortable. I must say had I known it was going to Be that small I would have driven to my destination probably would have been much better for my knees and thighs. There needs to be a revamping of the seating size and space on these planes. The fact that you have to pay to watch T.V , 7.99, is a bit of a joke."
Cons: "Flight Attendants took forever to come and bring you water, headphones or something to eat. Seats were uncomfortable and my headrest was broke. I paid for Wifi and it didn't work. Food is over priced. Boarding was telling us our flight was full so please check your luggage but I was row 4 and the flight crew let everyone on with two bags and the last people in 4 and 5 were screwed and upset for checking our bags."
Pros: "Quick, painless flight from O'Hare to Austin, that landed much earlier than anticipated. I was renting my car 20 minutes before we were scheduled to land."
Cons: "No entertainment options, even for personal devices on their 737s."
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding was pretty efficient"
Cons: "No complimentary snacks on the flight from Austin to Los Angelss. Entertainment was non existent unless you paid for wifi, even then you can't stream videos and no TVs at all"
Pros: "I have time to get a shoe sine and do some shopping a the airport. Check out 2 bars."
Cons: "I gat home at 12 20. I was hoping to get home at 7 :30. And I spend 200 but I was happy to get home safe. Thank you all"
Cons: "Terrible delays during boarding with no seating in boarding area after boarding is called to begin."
Cons: "See previous comment"
Cons: "Small commuter jet with small poorly padded seats"
Pros: "Our tickets had no assigned seats so we checked in at the gate. The attendant was very helpful but could only offer us middle seats sitting apart from one another. When we scanned our passes at the gate we were surprised to learn she found us seats together with extra leg room! What a treat!"
Pros: "I slept the whole way and wasn't disturbed"
Cons: "There was no food serviced and no entertainment"
Pros: "2 of the flight attendants were really nice. I had an empty seat next to me."
Cons: "They board us on the plane only to have us wait for an hour for our pilot. That's terrible business to have that many paying people to wait for anything, especially a ride before midnight. I asked a flight attendant if she could let me watch the tv in front of me for free considering the inconvenience. She responded in a very matter of fact tone explaining my inconvenience was not a very big deal and actually lied about the landing time to make my claims sound less worthy. I feel like jet blue, virgin and southwest are the only airlines that still care about the customer and their experience and not just how to squeeze more money out of them."
Pros: "Service of flight attendants and the seat space i am 6 '6". The menu its delicious"
Cons: "No free entertainment like local channel's and music."
Pros: "Entertainment was great p"
Cons: "Leg room on economy was non-existent"
Cons: "Security was worst I have ever seen - needed well over recommended 90 mins. No entertainment and ran out of food. Extra charge for regular economy seats. Reminded why I don't choose United."
Cons: "First, my original DIRECT flight was cancelled bc of weather. I was switched to a flight w a connection no joke less than an hour later. Why not just postpone original flight? Then, I had a middle seat. I was in between two extremely overweight people that had no business buying only one ticket. It was clear that there was no room for three people and no one checked in or tried to accommodate. Trying to go to the bathroom was a huge ordeal bc the person next to me was barely mobile. If there was an emergency , it would have been a hazard. When I was able to go to the bathroom (after ten minutes of maneuvering ) flight attendants seemed annoyed when people were in the lane. While this is understandable, it was not possible for me to quickly scoot back into my seat. Overall , this was a terrible experience. Entertainment was lacking. It took about 30 minutes to get any beverages after being requested."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Got in later then needed."
Pros: "Bigger planes"
Cons: "Seats were too hard"
Cons: "My first flight was delayed by an hour and 20 min. I arrived at Dallas for my connector to Austin, 25 min before my departure time. I could have made it, however, the plane taxi'd at the gate for at least 10 min, then the door wouldn't open. When I finally got off, I sprinted to my next gate, thinking they may hold it for a few minutes as there were many people connecting on that flight to Austin, but instead they did the opposite. When I arrived there were other people waiting who had arrived 10 min before the departure time (also from a delayed flight) and the doors were already closed. There was no representative at the gate to even tell us this, until we had waited over 10 min, and when he arrived, he said the doors were closed, and all of us were too late. Why would you close the doors early, knowing that other connectors were coming in. Additionally, on my return trip, my flight was cancelled, and I never received a reason for its cancellation, just an automatic rebooking that put me back in New York a day late. I had to be on the phone for an hour, rebooking a flight that United didn’t have. They instead put me on an American airlines flight last minute that I barely made. This wouldn’t have been so bad if this wasn’t the second time this exact scenario occurred within two months, when my siblings attempted to return home for the Christmas holidays. United is terrible."
Pros: "Had the whole row to myself! Got to relax and lay down the whole flight."
Cons: "Wifi cost $7; only worked 15 min."
Cons: "no food and no entertainment"
Pros: "The United help desk was very accommodating, and the woman who helped me went out of her way to find me a flight with another airline that would get me to my destination faster than the next United flight. She was also kind enough to upgrade the first half of my trip to first class at no extra charge."
Cons: "While my journey was pleasant once it began, I arrived at my destination 10 hours later than planned. I was supposed to have a quick direct flight to Austin from Newark I the morning, and it was cancelled because the pilot didn't show up. There was no rescheduled flight, and suddenly 60+ people were trying to find extra seats on the next Austin flights which were of course also booked. Many people were put on standby, but the next flight was overbooked so not even everyone with tickets made it on the plane. I ended up having a 2 leg, 6 hour journey that left 5 hours after my planned departure (which was a direct 3 hour flight)."
Cons: "Had to pay over $200 to check bags and dog, won't be flying United anytime soon."
Pros: "Great hospitable crew. Took a minute to get off the ground, but better safe than sorry!"
Cons: "Flight was late as usual with united. Every time I fly United there is some kind of delay. The landing was awful as well"
Pros: "Was boarded quickly"
Cons: "No charge ports for my phone Small plane for a full flight with limited overhead space"
Cons: "Seats very hard and uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seating,constant advertising,flight atendands,delay all in this order"
Pros: "Everything! Trip was so smooth"
Cons: "Took a while to take off and the screens weren't working throughout the flight."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "That I got to my destination"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, could not hear/understand announcer"
