Pros: "Flight crew were good."
Cons: "My checked baggage did not make it on this flight even though it was checked in over an hour before the flight. I have been getting the runaround at the Baggage Claim area and on the phone. It may be delivered tomorrow afternoon and I have food items in the baggage and it may not be delivered until the afternoon of the next day. They don’t have a good baggage tracking system."

Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."
Pros: "I liked that we were given cookies with our drinks that was a nice touch. I also enjoyed that it was a very quick flight from Dallas to Cincinnati. Shout out to the crew members, they work really hard to help us feel comfortable."
Cons: "The sound of the turbo engine in the beginning made my head feel really dizzy, but the buzzing went away after a while. Other than that, I think that the tiny planes should still have some sort of entertainment, even if it's just a single movie playing for all to watch."

Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
Cons: "Poor communication Delays -3 hrs"
Pros: "The pilot was a riot, the flight was on time. Again, nothing wrong, nothing special. As it should be (if only we had more leg and seat room, and I am pretty streamline)."

Pros: "From boarding to landing evething was perfect. Flight was not overcrowded, so I could lay and sleep comfortable in economy. Crew ok"
Cons: "There seets are two small. And they dont sell alcohol. That sucks."
Pros: "The friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and leaving Dallas but we arrived on time. And the plane is very narrow. Two ladies with hips sitting next to each other can be uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and very professional. It was not a full flight and boarding was quick and easy. We landed almost an hour early. When we made the reservation we were told it was an 8 hour and 50 minute flight but we got there in 7 hours and 45 minutes, more than 1 hour early. It would be good to know the real timing so that meetings could be planned in a timely way."
Cons: "This is a code share with American Airlines and an American Airlines plane and crew and it is an out of date plane. There were no individual screens only 1 screen hanging down every five or six seats. The seats are very, very narrow. The cleanliness of the tray tables were gooey and full of crusted dirt as were the seat areas in front of the tray tables. I was told that they fly an even older plane from Europe to NY, which is an old one aisle plane. Not sure why AA continues to use such out of date planes but if they use planes from the 1980's it seems to me that they should charge 1980 prices!"
Cons: "The flight out of Dallas was delayed. We hustled to our last gate and the person was incredibly rude about last call a d is just arriving to the gate..."
Pros: "The gentleman at the departure desk was first rate. Polite and accommodating he was just what you would expect from an airline. Especially American Airlines. The crew was the same and I was happy to have decided to use AA."
Cons: "The departure was delayed approximately an hour."
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."
Cons: "Finnair was thru American Airlines. American had only a couple of check in windows open when we got to the Frankfurt airport - nowhere near enough to handle the number of people checking in."
Cons: "Fight was cancelled as reported a light near the exit sign was out. Had to sit in the airport 8 hours a regular delay of the this route."
Pros: "Timeliness, and the cabin crew."
Pros: "Enjoyed the rare opportunity to fly first class."
Cons: "Did not appreciate being delayed 30 minutes because flight attendants did not have enough rest time. Inconvenience 183 for the sake of 4 employees. This is the second flight in 1.5 weeks I have been on delayed by crew not on time."
Pros: "I met someone who was going to a university I used to attend from South Africa. I enjoyed the entertainment selection and the fact that the flight was quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence on the plane ride a couple of times during the 8 hour flight."

Pros: "The complementary snacks and drinks were good"
Cons: "Our flight attendant was late which caused us to be late so I had to change my flight and take a taxi go to LAX to catch a different flight and I was up for a total of 25 hours until I arrived at my final destination(my hotel) thanks a lot I will never use American Airline again if I have a choice of other airlines"
Cons: "No bad, easy"
Pros: "Movie choice"
Cons: "Man flight was rude for me reason"
Pros: "Updated plane. Seats were nice. Flight landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The new controls built into the armrests are HORRIBLE! You accidentally hit a button constantly because ITS AN ARM REST! Get the engineers building something to cover it up. We landed early and I was so excited to get a jump home. I then waited for 35 mins for my bags to appear on the conveyor AFTER walking all the way to the baggage claim from the gate. I arrived home later than I expected.....This is not the first time that the United baggage was so slow. This needs to be an improvement area."
Cons: "Leaving on time. More updates on status. Water was served 2 hours after sitting in tarmac."
Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Snack options"
Pros: "Organized crew"
Cons: "Travel delay was a bummer and landing was felt like a huge bounce and skid. Not sure if that was unavoidable due to weather or a hiccup so to speak."

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived early!"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "United app would not work both ways. Have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "Good rate"

Pros: "Crew on the plane were very friendly."
Cons: "Checking in crew were not friendly. Boarding process for IAD->CVG flight was very confusing and staff did not really appear like they wanted to help. Once on the plane, the crew there was excellent. Net - airport staff in Cincinnati and Washington Dulles (not good)."
Pros: "I didnt care for anything"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. There were no chargers at any seat in Coach."
Pros: "Seat 7 A on this type of aircraft - and United's configuration - had the most leg room and space, esp. when the seat next to you is empty. The flight crew was friendly and great!"
Cons: "Boarding gates/ area in Denver airport for these small aircraft was almost as bad as a bus station! Crowded and most cramped/ uncomfortable. Denver United staff at customer service center was most unhelpful, unsympathetic and dismissive about the fact that in spite of a flight delay that completely their fault (no weather delay), which made me miss the memorial service for my friend's daughter - my main purpose for visiting Cincinnati - they refused to even give me a patient hearing much less consider my request to try and put me on a different flight!"
Pros: "Easy and quick boarding process; arrived early; no wait to get luggage."
Cons: "The plane was so old that it just seemed like it should be retired. My flight was also delayed 45 minutes. They made passengers get off the plane because of a weight restriction it was absurd that my luggage took 40 minutes to come off the plane"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. I was traveling alone with an infant and since the flight wasn't full, the ticketing agent moved seats around and gave me an entire row! It was so nice to have the extra space with all my things and to get up freely when needing to change my sons diaper. There was also a changing table in the bathroom which was much needed."
Cons: "Lack of information from United. Eventually had to buy a ticket from another airline."
Cons: "Upgraded to first class the trip to was great the return was terrible even the first class seating was old and uncomfortable then my bag was not at my final location (direct flight) was told it wouldn't scan!? Same bag used numerous times then I was told I'd have it the next day by noon call at 2 pm and it says it's on its way them receive a call at 430 pm saying he just left the airport wtf?! Just over all very bad service and didn't get a damn thing for my troubles."

Pros: "On time coming & going. Friendly"
Pros: "On time performance"
Cons: "Wifi login process is complicated"

Pros: "Flight crew were very nice"
Cons: "The flight left an hour and 15 minutes after the scheduled time."
Pros: "It was a very well ran flight, both fights were what you would expect from an airline service. Overall satisfied."
Cons: "Flight got 4+ hours delayed due to mech issues so I was late to work the next day and they thought it safe enough to still use the messed up plane to go on a 6hr cross country journey once they fixed the problems they've never witnessed before. Crazy I want my money back."
Pros: "The flight attendant was excellent. Much better than most of your other ones."
Pros: "The gate agent was so nice and polite my connecting flight was late but he still allowed me to grab something to drink. He saved my life I had been sick since I left Dallas and needed something as I felt i was maybe dehydrated."
Cons: "My Stewardess on the flight seem despondent. I am for some coffee she replied that they had that in first class but it was crazy cause I just looked thru the pamphlet and it said Now Serving Illy coffee which I love. Then I saw her give another passenger a cup of coffee she looked at me with an attitude like I just made that... Then she brought it. This was crazy because if she wasn't black I would have called her racist then again done black people are racist to they own..SMH"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats on CRJ700. Bottom was fine, but seatback had ZERO padding."
Cons: "Boarding went quickly but then waited almost 35 minutes on the plane to take off. Once the plane landed there was again a wait to pull into the gate. Spent more time waiting on the plane than the flight itself."
Pros: "Conplimentary drinks and flight time. Most everything was generally fantastic"
Cons: "Choice of snacks."
Pros: "The boarding staff in the airport were excellent and very helpful. Wish I would have got the gate attendant name because she was great. There was a 30 minute delay for departure due to a maintenance issue but we arrived in Cincinnati only 10 minutes late."

Pros: "Crew was fine!"
Cons: "We boarded on time but had to wait about 25 extra minutes because luggage went to to wrong gate for wrong plane. My luggage was not there when I arrived and the next day I still don't have it."
Pros: "The stewardess offered me a free refil"
Cons: "No wifi, we sat 15 feet from the gate for 15 min waiting for someone to move the jet bridge. Did they not know we were showing up? Was it a surprise? Then I had to wait 30 more minutes for my luggage to arrive."
Cons: "t was delayed without informing me i stay in airport 6hours"
Pros: "It was clean and the stewardesses were nice."
Cons: "I curbside checked my bag, and when I got to Cincinnati, it never got off the plane. I had to ask several times for them to go back into the plane and look again. They finally did and found it. But it was just a nightmare."
