Pros: "Crew was great. Love that the soft drinks are still free, unlike some other carriers. More leg room in the plane as well"
Cons: "Delay of 1.5 hours for “fuel” reasons that were sketchy at best. Luckily we were not one of the many that missed connections"
Pros: "Crew was absolutely precious."
Cons: "Delayed because a passenger was let on that shouldn’t have been. The plane was kind of beat up and gross. The gate changed after boarding started. This is the second flight in two weeks that had the wrong gate posted."
Pros: "Food was far better coming back than going there."
Cons: "No working USB to hook electronics up. What good is it to stream onboard content when on a 10H flight my phone dies in 4H... Stick to paper books next time."
Cons: "Delayed the flight because they sold 1/3 of the seats, not a priority for American operating at a loss."
Pros: "Crew was good!!!"
Cons: "Food in first class had pretty much no taste."
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "More drinks"
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was cancelled and we missed our friends 70th birthday celebration."

Pros: "I paid for 2 seats and they took my seat and did not reimburse me"
Cons: "They should of reimbursed me for my seat that they took"
Cons: "Economy cabin is not meant for anyone over 6' tall. Worst seats I have experienced on any airline. My knees were jammed against the seat on front of me the entire flight. The seats lacked cushion. My legs became numb 20 minutes into the flight. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever experienced."

Pros: "Getting home"

Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was not full."

Pros: "The flight was too short for food or drink"
Pros: "Everything is excellent!!"
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived early. Great crew. A321 is a nice aircraft. Good legroom."
Pros: "The entertainment system and quality of selections"
Cons: "Sun Light from another passenger’s window was shinning in my eye. But I suppose that’s not Americans fault lol"
Pros: "I hope I never fly American again!!! We were supposed to leave at 2.pm, but dud not until 11 pm. The AA customer service staff wanted to charge me $ for my carry on! We missed our connection of course! Had to wait 2 hrs at next airport for a hotel. Did receive food vouchers and luggage was checked in right away (good thing). But overall ridiculous! Missed an entire day due to AA not having another plain? Or not finding another way to put passengers in other flights."
Cons: "Customer treatment and lack of interest on custmer satisfaction. The Denver staff was changed so often they had no clue about customers needs and it was all about making the bucks for the airline."
Cons: "Everything. Flights canceled due to "weather" but every other airline was flying to these locations and the customer service experience was miserable at best."
Cons: "MISSED MY FLIGHT DUE TO LUGGAGE CHECK IN TIMING EVEN THOUGH THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED FOR ANOTHER HOUR."
Pros: "The complementary wine was nice. The raspberry sponge cake was nice. Nice options for entertainment."
Cons: "No one in the entire airport knew what flight I was talking about when I told them it was Iberia + flight number. People were saying I must have the wrong airport. I almost missed my flight because of this. Everything was through American airlines. It would have been nice to know this going in. Also it was tough doing transfers because once again, none of the departure screens refer to "Iberia flights." It was also tough to check-in. Instructions were not clear in terms of the booking number to use. The Iberia app had a lot of usability problems. The seats are too cramped. I'd have to take out a loan to be able to afford business class or 1st class. It's absolutely horrible for everyone in coach. Especially for long flights as this one. The food was subpar, but that is to be expected in my opinion. Would have been nice to offer complementary headphones. I wasn't able to utilize the entertainment because my headphones are blue tooth. Upon arrival, we had to sit on the tarmac for 20 minutes because there was another airplane in our spot."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 35 minutes. No reason given."
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth"
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: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Got delayed by almost 2 hours, no wifi or food on the plane."
Pros: "More leg room than expected, food was airline food, but not that bad considering. Plenty of beverages, great selection of movies. Hour delay leaving, but arrived only half an hour late."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "That the flight was not full and staff were just great very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "All good on this flight."
Cons: "The staff, American airlines did not accommodate me. I purchased a first class ticket American airlines flight was delayed making me late for my connection on another American flight. I was given a coach ticket and told to take it leave it."
Pros: "Offer to send the carry on for free at the gate."
Cons: "Have to pay for check in bag. Used to be free!!!"
Pros: "Plane was insanely old"
Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"
Pros: "The crew was nice Smooth ride"
Cons: "Still at the Dam airport,7hr wait is a pain in the back!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, and arrived about 1/2 hour early into MPS!!"
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
Cons: "Please read above."
Pros: "The pasta coming out of Frankfurt that was served on the plane was actually phenomenal I have never had that kind of cheese spaetzle in an aircraft before absolutely excellent. The desert choice of the crumble tart was also very good. The roll was cold as usual in economy class. The rap served as pre arrival meal was also very good. This was by far the best food I have ever had and economy class I have never encountered this food traveling from the US to Europe but traveling back from Europe the food is often better. This one was phenomenal."
Cons: "Selecting the entertainment choices was very very sluggish to the point where I just discontinued trying to find a show to watch. On both flights, going to Frankfurt and then returning from Frankfurt those international flights, the video or entertainment was very slow to select. I also noticed in some seats it wasn't working or people also just gave up. I did however like the fact that some shows we're closed captioned, that is really helpful because sometimes it is difficult to adjust the sound to to be able to clearly hear the conversations in the movie. Subtitles definitely help. I wish all of them had subtitles. The boarding is okay and I understand all the emeralds and rubies and platinum's Etc, but sometimes by the time group for get seated there's not always enough room in the overhead compartments because people tend to put all their bags their. And some people still take oversized bags that should probably be checked this is quite a nuisance."
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Cons: "No seemed happy at all."
Pros: "Great crew! Super friendly! Thanks for making my flight a great one!"
Pros: "New plane with great overhead bins and comfortable seats and pretty empty!"
Cons: "WiFi could have been better, and seats could have been better"
Cons: "I had a very large man in the middle seat next to me. I was in the window seat. He leaked over into my seat which made it very uncomfortable especially when he fell asleep. I know the airlines can't do anything about this but he should pay for a larger seat."
Pros: "Great crew. Comfortable in economy plus."
Cons: "Bigger screens. More options for entertainment."
Cons: "Communication about the delay was poor. The captain acted like he had no idea how maintenance clearances work."
Pros: "Boarding was slow because the flight was sold out."
Cons: "Slow service. Poor loading and unloading."
Pros: "Left on time. Deplaned into a tunnel, which was great because it was raining"
Cons: "My flight was rescheduled, so I ended up waiting about a 12 hour delay in Germany"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Friendly crew."
Cons: "It turned out that we were on stand by (without anyone telling us until the morning of the flight) and did not know if we were going to fly out. We could not select any seats at check in and only found out our seats a few hours before the flight. It was quite unpleasant and stressful as my husband and I were flying with our two children and faced a real possibility of not being able to sit together or getting bumped off a flight all together. It was a code shared flight between Lufthansa and United and each airline kept sending us to the other to get any answers or help. neither were helpful. It made it for an extremely frustrating experience."
Cons: "We were delayed to no fault of the airline"
Pros: "- orderly boarding - calm crew despite many frustrating circumstances which delayed the flight"
Cons: "- Had to wait for catering to deliver carts before take off (this also caused a weight balance issue) - After carts were delivered, we were informed catering had forgotten one which caused more of a delay - While we were waiting, the plane started to become unbearably hot - After finally taking off, we were promised free Directv access for the delay but the entertainment was turned off 5 min into the flight due to technical difficulties"
Pros: "The crew was great"
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)."
Cons: "Minimal and rushed service due to holiday shortage of flight attendants should be compensated. Otherwise a good flight."
Pros: "Flexibility in changing reservation at the last minute. Excellent service on board, good food."
Cons: "United's flight was delayed by 6 hours, couldn't make the connecting flight from Washington DC to Denver so they routed me to san francisco, spend the night at the airport there and then travel to Denver in the morning. Fortunately there was a very helpful crew in Schiphol that was able to get us on a flight with american airlines to philadelphia and then on to Denver."
Pros: "Nothing At All"
Cons: "United Airlines Was Unwilling To Assist With The Changing Of My Flight Due To The Circumstances In Puerto Rico And Wanted To Charge Me $1250 Just To Move My Flight One Day I Will Never Be Using This Service Again.Not To Mention They Wanted To Charge Me $75 Just To Pay For My Bags In Cash"
Pros: "Finally, got a plane and arrived in SLO!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2 hours: no information, no explanation. In fact, all cooperating connecting United flights were 2 hours late, not just mine"
Pros: "On time boarding, comfortable seating. The young man who was the sole flight attendant was excellent (attentive, competent, kind)."
Pros: "Apart from the poor attitude of the lady in Denver the rest went fine."
Pros: "The flight crew were much better than the one on the out-bound flight. Our steward was really good."
Cons: "The Polaris class thing is not fully put together. The ANA cabin was more comfortable."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Sit in the last row and wait for the food"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding. Changed gate without notifying anyone. Running around trying to catch connection with very little time."
Pros: "Both legs of flights went without a hitch"
Pros: "Food was very good, almost restaurant-level. Wine selection was good as well"
Cons: "While on the plane at the gate, had to wait 20 mins for someone to hang my jacket (had to ask and the person came back 5 mins later) despite the fact that the attendant immediately checked on the guy next to me when he sat down, who apparently had status with United (attendant ignored me). I guess a $7,000 fare doesn't warrant special attention. I had to ask the same attendant for other items at times, but he'd forget and I'd have to ask someone else. Also, the seats were decent yet a bit crowded IMHO. I'm 5'10" and my feet were crammed up against the front of the space when fully reclined. The width of the seat area was a bit tight as well. Finally, they have 2 heads (toilets) that serve both the business class section ( maybe 50 people) as well as the front of economy. One of the pilots was waiting at the same time as me and agreed that it was a pretty questionable layout for the number of seats covered. All in all, not my favorite airline and nothing on this trip so far changed that view."
Cons: "Your company and crew make me sick, and all of you should feel ashamed and embarrassed."
Pros: "Nice, friendly personnel. Plane was fairly comfortable. Made up some lost time due to late take off."
Cons: "Late departure."
Pros: "always enjoy the short flight home and I even got a glass of water"
Pros: "I broke my arm and all of the gate agents were wonderful trying and succeeding in getting me A seats for my comfort."
Cons: "united reliability and transperecency can b painful"
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces."
Cons: "No complaints. Everything went well."
Pros: "I enjoyed the timely service and smooth ride."
Cons: "Seats in coach get a little uncomfortable after a few hours."
Pros: "That is a short time period and the staff was at their best."
Pros: "The crew to LA was nice! The crew to Houston seemed tired and needed a break or some days off. Or maybe the just got back to work and weren't ready."
Cons: "United is a pretty decent airline. What they probably DON'T have control over is so many children on a flight. I understand that, but honestly the flight to Houston sucked with whiny kids. What they CAN control is the overbooking of flights. I notice that the flights to LA are often overbooked. It's a bit annoying when waiting to board a flight and constantly seeing the overbooked notification asking people to volunteer their seat. It's not the first time."
Pros: "Lovely flight. Comfortable seating."
Pros: "On time coming & going. Friendly"
Cons: "united airlines planes are very old"
Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"
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: "Everything went smoothly and employees were all very nice"
Cons: "Satellite wasn't working so we had no in flight info. No Problem tho since I had stuff to read"
Pros: "It was awesome, I could travel on Gold gropu for a chrap pice! Simply great"
Pros: "Not everyone showed up for the flight, so I got an extra seat to spread out across."
Cons: "You should make seats that absorb smell. The guy in front of me smelled like he pooped his pant."
Cons: "It was over 7 hours late. The second plane was old and in poor condition. The crew attitude des were awful."
Pros: "Customer service who helped us switch flights from Burbank to LAX was helpful"
Cons: "Booked and paid for a flight for 4 had no seats, put on another flight that was delayed for 5 hours. Sat in Denver airport for 6.5+ hours with small children. Could not get seats together on second flight"
Pros: "Crew did an excellent job of taking care of a patient with a medical issue."
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "We arrived almost half and hour before ETA That was amazing. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Complimentary snacks and drinks were a joke At that time in the morning mini cookie and a mini glass of soda (not even the whole can? ) i think the airline can do way better than that."
Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant, and the flight and landing were smooth."
Cons: "I wish there was more food included with the flight instead of us having to buy food on the plane, especially on a flight that was almost 6 hours long."
