Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "There was no gate agent in Santa Fe. I had to leave two very expensive bottles of alcohol I’m the trash because they don’t have adequate staff to check my bag."
Pros: "Crew was very rude and did not follow actual baggage policies regarding a passenger’s batteries in their bag that fit just fine in the overhead."
Cons: "Crew could maybe re-read policy and use their logic to apply it correctly."
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane."
Cons: "Wish we had beverage service back soon."
Cons: "Your seats are too small, but we know the airline industry is not gonna do anything about it."
Cons: "The American Airlines staff seemed like they were in a bad mood, not very friendly. Nothing outrageous though."
Pros: "We were allowed to board early with my father, who is disabled."
Cons: "Denver airport was a nightmare with my disabled father. We were given a “wheelchair” but no escort through a nightmarish security scene. Airport is terribly designed, lacking clear signage and navigation. TSA was a disaster and no one seemed remotely concerned about my father’s comfort or needs."
Pros: "Pilot and crew were great even though we had lots of delays due to weather"
Cons: "Gate agents were a little rude to some customers"
Pros: "Seats in first class were comfortable. It was nice to get a cocktail right away."
Cons: "A real snack would have been nice after boarding"
Pros: "comfortable plane."
Cons: "Kay&k was awful. Never use them again."
Pros: "Crew did a great job!"
Cons: "Not much everything was smooth."
Pros: "Quick f playing AA"
Pros: "Crew was outstanding."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on."
Pros: "Great entertainment and crew."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Sure, I could’ve paid extra to have more legroom, but the flight was already expensive enough. Please spread the seats back out a bit and charge us all the same price."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, comfortable and staff was terrific."
Pros: "Great flight. Great staff. Nice landing"
Pros: "Purser Rockland Albrecht and his crew went out of their way to make our over night flight BA as comfortable as possible. Found us better seats and checked in to see that all was well on a busy flight. Service has certainly improved!"
Pros: "The movie selection on the flight was stellar."
Cons: "AA let me know that our flights were delayed to MIA, which would in effect, make up miss out connection to get to Kingston, Jamaica. They tried to rebook us, but for the NEXT day. So after calling, I got my ticket rebooked for an earlier flight, but I couldn’t do the same for my boyfriend’s. At the airport we requested he check in as standby, however, the rep checking us in said he couldn’t. We asked for other flights arriving on the same day at the original ticket & even looking across partner airlines, he said there was nothing. Hard to believe, but then eventually said he found something by way of Lax to AZ to MIA & then KIN that would arrive later that night. We quickly took it because it was getting late to check in for TSA for my flight, only to find out later that the ticket he printed was for arrival the next night - not at all what we agreed upon! What a waste of time, as if the money we spent on this vacation didn’t mean anything, and when I called to get compensated, I was told to write in to AA. Write in. It’s 2018. Who can I speak with to get compensated for our time & money being wasted? I understand it may not have been within AA control, however, I would have liked for them to have cared that we were inconvenienced as paying customers, instead of being told, in action & in words, that the inconvenience we were being put through (to no fault of our own) was no big deal & we should just suck up the money we are loosing as a result. Very disappointed ☹️"
Cons: "Taxied for two hours, then returned for fuel and discovered an engine problem. Had to change aircraft. No food or entertainment system."
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Cons: "Flight crew was late and didn’t try and make things move faster to make up time. Kept saying they wanted to go Puerto Rico and that’s where they should have been going."
Cons: "The airport crew in Fort Myers were rude, slow, difficult and more concerned with chitchat among themselves than helping passengers"
Pros: "Better-than-expected legroom and comfort. Plane was clean, well kept. Much newer aircraft, so the enhanced entertainment features were great!"
Cons: "Poor boarding experience due to long line and plane capacity. Felt bombarded by American Airlines marketing schemes for their airline credit card."
Pros: "Ability to check in the carry on"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, entertainment with few choices"
Pros: "I got to sneak into the economy plus seats and no one said anything."
Cons: "Flight attendants clearly did not like each other and argued constantly. Sub-par coffee (even by international standards)."
Cons: "The crew looked very bored."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Baggage was damaged and took a long time to get to the claim area."
Cons: "After flying 24 hours one of four bags got put on a later flight. The line at baggage service was so long that by the time I waited for the bag it arrived on another flight 2 hours of wait! Unbelievable! Disappointing. And by the way if a passenger is assigned to a seat that doesn’t recline it should be heavily discounted. Heavily as in half price of a normal seat. It really is sad that airline industry is not more service focused and more efficient."
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "This is a modern airplane with great features"
Cons: "The seats are way to narrow"
Cons: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Pros: "Entertainment Captain Food"
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "seating too small."
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."
Pros: "I found this flight to be very efficient and the crew very professional and friendly. After a previous 15 hour flight I was very tired and this flight was a welcome ending to my journey."
Pros: "The food, entertainment and crew were satisfactory."
Cons: "I did not like that my original flight was flat out cancelled. It made for a stressful trip."
Cons: "Your partner vayama doesn't provide the terminal or airline. Went to Iberia/ terminal 7 just to realize it was AA/terminal 8."
Pros: "Nonstop flight"
Cons: "Bag of pretzels to eat. Just so cheap"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "The flight left almost 6 hours late, and the delay was not directly due to weather. Another flight from and to the same airports left as scheduled 3 hours before this one finally left."
Pros: "Everything, it was my first time flying and I actually really enjoyed it! I'd be looking Forward to flying with this airline again!"
Pros: "I prefer this size plane to the other alternatives."
Cons: "No snacks were offered at all."
Cons: "seating was very uncomfortable crew was extremely rude no entertainment at all for the 5 hours flight"

Cons: "The snack choice was unappealing."
Pros: "Very little turbulence, excellent flight crew."

Pros: "No weather issues this time"
Cons: "Nothing good flight"
Pros: "great gate personnel"
Cons: "late times loading and taking off"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
Pros: "Since the flight was delay almost 4 hours and the replacement plane was very old, but I did get home no comment."
Pros: "The effort of the crew to do as much as they could. Even at basic econ fare. Profits dictate. People are crammed as much as possible. We felt like folding chairs. But what can be done?"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Communication about the delay was poor. The captain acted like he had no idea how maintenance clearances work."
Pros: "Gusty winds in CID - the crew handled this quite well. Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was no UAL ground crew to greet us when we arrived on time (11PM) in Cedar Rapids. Poor communication."
Pros: "Having about an hour and 20 minutes left me with enough time to explore the airport from one gate to the other without feeling terribly rushed."
Cons: "The ONLY thing negative that I can say is that the Chicago airport had no charging stations at my gate."
Pros: "The entertainment can stream a large library of movies to your device"

Cons: "Service was outstanding. No complaints"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."
Cons: "bad web site lost luggage stolen items from luggage no option to wrap my luggage in plastic unfriendly staff late flight and take off"
Pros: "So kind"
Cons: "Wish everyone was like her"
Cons: "Flight left 6 hours late with only vague explanations. Simply, "we had to get our equipment in the right places." Attempts to standby on 3 other flights were fruitless and UA airport staff gave no direction or recommendations other than "were sorry.""
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was a little rude."
Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."
Cons: "Airport transfer; timing; information availability; security chaos"
Pros: "Smiling attendants."
Cons: "After buying alcohol in Guatemala, at the duty free shop, the workers at the shop taped the small boxed jars in bubble wrap - not, I discovered in an official duty free bag. So security stopped me in Houston, I went back to the United counter where they were going to charge me $15 to send it to Sacramento. I didn't spend the money. Dissapointing."
Pros: "FAST TURNAROUND OF LATE ARRIVING INBOUND FLIGHT"
Pros: "First and foremost, our flight arrived 25 minutes early! Nuff said!"
Cons: "Did make this flight due to severe delay in Santa Barbara"
Cons: "Seats in economy were cramped! Chair barely leaned back at all. Woke up with a sore neck. Cabin was freezing!"
Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"
Pros: "The flight and the flight attendant was amazing. Very professional and accommodating...you could tell she enjoys her job. She also discreetly handed me an extender...very nice."
Cons: "I did not like having to put my own bag on the travel cart. I wasn't expecting to have to check my bag at the last minute. Someone at United need a to warn potential passengers the limited space on the plane. I felt like others that we were the Jolly Green Giant."
Pros: "Mints at the end of the flight! Leg room adequate! Professional attendants."
Cons: "During Boarding process we blocked the entire concourse making it awkward for non passengers of the flight walking to and fro who had to squeeze between us. Has to be a better way. Otherwise very smooth."
Pros: "Friendly staff, bags were received quickly at baggage claim."
Cons: "40 min boarding delay, didn't have a phone charge at my seat."
Pros: "First pilot on 1502 drove smooth and was able to cut 30min of the in flight time"
Cons: "On arrival from 1502 the baggage claim area for United was poorly executed with guest luggage coming off tow conveyer belts and not properly communicated to passengers. Took over 1 1/2 to get one checked piece as large items came out first. On my return flight to the States in 1503 the pilot drove rough in his take off and through turbulence. Lastly, I was disappointed with the i flight paid wifi service where other carriers offer free 1hr service and/or inflight movie on your personal device."
Pros: "It was a good flight and for a great prize"
Pros: "On time, crew was friendly"
Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"
Pros: "The flight attendants at united make everything super easy. I'm an anxious person when I get to the airport but I know that if I have any questions the united airlines crew will take care of me. The pilots are amazing and airways land the plane smoothly."
Pros: "Had to land in Austin due to weather. Fueled up and flew back to Houston. I made the flight to tucson with 20 min to spare."
Pros: "The flight from Houston to St. Louis was delayed b/c maintenance had to "work on something." I think with something that vague and when you're boarding a plane that is the size of a small buss, you should be kind enough to let us know what that maintenance wS. You could even make something up just to put us at ease."
Pros: "Prompt, organized boarding. Professional, pleasant staff."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked. My adult son and I had tickets to "see agent" and given seats together. But they'd also assigned his seat a another person, who was already settled. Luckily, there was a seat left, and both arrived at out destination. Their solution was to move him, even tho we were traveling together."
Pros: "Updated plane, free movies"
Cons: "Only 1 little snack for 8-10 hour flight"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."

Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Short lflight"
Pros: "The actual flight was good. Didn't eat or drink so don't know. The less than perfect rating was because we left an hour late. Don't know how they handled folks with connecting flights but that can be a very stressful situation."
Cons: "That it was late"
Pros: "Nothing stand out. The crew was good."
Cons: "I booked a window seat weeks ago. UA somehow put me into a middle seat without notifying me. The 737 seating space is very tight. There is no entertanment to talk about; you pay for everything via directtv."
Pros: "very nice flight attendant. Very helpful to have my son and I sit together. Gave me a cup of coffee when i asked. very friendly as well."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and caring"
Cons: "MY SEAT WAS CHANGED WITHOUT EVEN ASKING ME The flight was 3 hrs delayed There was crying babies on board so I couldn't even get some rest"

Pros: "Crew did an excellent job of taking care of a patient with a medical issue."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job"
Cons: "My luggage was lost, my connecting flight was cancelled, I had to fend for myself in getting a cheap unkempt hotel room, I had to pay for my uber from the airport into New York City, there were no rentals or hotels near the airports hat were available. All united kept saying was go online to file for refunds. I will never fly with them again!"
