Cons: "Nothing was negative."
Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Tiny plane, old. No leg space at all (I'm 5.5). Our connection before this flight was a 1 hour flight on a modern very spacious airplane, we wished we could've flown on the same plane for the 6+ flight to Paris."
Cons: "Boarding chaos at Miami airport."
Pros: "Boarded online. Upgraded to a Comfort seat in and exit row. So wasn't cramped but the entertainment/movie icon happened to be missing from my monitor only. So 5 and a 1/2 flight with nothing to watch. The food tray was also pretty filthy. Otherwise a solid trip. Nice, accomadating crew and with a female pilot! Loved that!"
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat was broken. Was a bummer since we added a extra hour ground hold for weather."
Cons: "2.5 hour delay going, 3.5 hour delay returning. All because their paperwork had not been submitted on time. Terrible organization."

Cons: "Ended up being in a row of three broad-shouldered men, so the "Preferred" seat I paid extra for was not very preferable I despise the practice of making some seats require additional $$$ - just so they can advertise lower fares. Flight was delayed, which is more common than I'd like They're stuffing planes fuller and fuller while offering fewer and fewer amenities at an ever-increasing price with multiple additional costs"
Pros: "The male server was great. The ice cream for dessert was magnificent."
Cons: "First class was awful- no drink service for far too long, didn't have my food order that I selected ahead of time, the female asian flight attendant was not friendly at all, the seat reclined at the back only there was nothing for your feet, the blankets were awful, and movie selection was mediocre at best."

Pros: "It was all good.it was"
Pros: "Well organised"
Pros: "Good space on first."
Cons: "The boarding process is not organized, even if you're flying first you have to "elbow" your way in. The headphones or the connection are wrong the noise coming of it is terrible, couldn't watch a single movie. Unusable. Tried moving it around and changing for another unsuccessfully."
Pros: "I liked that the plane was clean, that the staff consisted of somewhat normal, more mature people, and that water and carry-ons are free."
Cons: "I felt that having to pay $50 extra for a seat when I checked in was pretty deceptive and unethical. I think most people would agree that when they purchase a boarding pass, it is assumed that it includes a seat. Having to pay extra for a seat was something I did not plan for and it was out of my budget, but I had no choice, because I had to get home somehow! I'll be going without groceries this week due to this unplanned expense."
Pros: "Friendly and willing cabin crew, on time, clear skies and no turbulence, relatively quiet, good leg room"
Cons: "Food not tasty, meat tough and dry..no one around us ate it. Dessert was o.k."
Pros: "The crew was really good. They made more rounds compared to other airlines and were always available."

Pros: "American doesn't complain about bags and weight. It makes my trip less stressful."
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."

Cons: "Delayed flight which kept pushing back for more then 5 hours. Got booked on the next flight got middle seat. Flight attendant was rude and short with people. Not very personable. Plane was so hot everyone was sweating."
Pros: "They let me know they couldn't get it together enough to get a plane in an almost timely manner. Once they did I couldn't take advantage of the alternatives without risking missing out all together"
Cons: "The 4 plus hour delay that meant a 3 plus hour layover because of the missed connection. Requesting an agreement to just make the new connection because of their non-weather related delay."
Cons: "United made me check my carry-on and would not transfer , so I had to wait for it and missed my connecting flight. Then I rebooked on a later flight which was cancelled due to weather. So needless to say I did not get to Ottawa and had to purchase a hotel room in Newark. United is telling me I may not get on another flight until tomorrow night. I am very disappointed."

Pros: "I love everything very good"
Pros: "Friendly staff, and an informative pilot."
Pros: "Was very difficult time getting home on my schedule time. First they said they had no seating, then after calling mother explaining then had go back up she said she had seat. Worst flight I ever had with all these problems."
Pros: "the flight crew was awesome! Enjoyed the movie selection on the way back. I'm not a movie person but I watched 3 and enjoyed them all."
Cons: "People had the usual trouble with the overhead bins - I think staff should be more restrictive regarding letting people take on bags that are too large. More gate-checking of things larger than a backpack would speed boarding process."
Cons: "We were at the counter 57 min before flight. They would not consider letting us on the flight even though no one else was in line. My father had a heart attack and i was trying to get home. Zero bending the rules."

Pros: "Easy to board and check in, good price"
Cons: "It was extra to check luggage"
Pros: "The flight was cheapest one available"

Cons: "Having a middle seat"
Pros: "Nothing. Flight was cancelled."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, Went to customer service at Dulles, 2 people working, 5 standing around chatting. After 30 minutes, with the line not moving decided to leave and take Amtrak. Then, United sent me back to customer service to get a release to get me checked bag, I gave up and took a cab to Union Station. Through it all, United's customer service was horrible. I thought American was bad, but United beats them for worst customer service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed multiple times due to the maintenance issues with the fuel tanks. Flight ended up being delayed an 1 plus."
Pros: "The flight attendant was pleasant, and the flight and landing were smooth."
Pros: "Love the free tv/movies with the United App. That was great!"
Cons: "Tight aisle"
Cons: "A lady with a dog on a leash was allowed on board. I do not think it was a service dog. In the gate area, the dog was encouraged to get up on the seat. The owner also walked the dog over to a couple to visit, and the couple had a large cat in a carrier. The dog owner did not see the cat in the carrier for a few minutes. Then, when she did realized it she did not move away. You could see that the dog noticed the cat and was getting excited, and proceeded to bark. I don't know why she didn't back away when she noticed the cat. On board, the dog, still on a leash, didn't stay under her feet. The owner did not hang on to the leash."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Better food would have made my night"
