Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Delayed as usual."
Pros: "The ground crew worked really hard to get us going."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hours."
Pros: "Crew was spectacular"
Cons: "If it had been on time"
Pros: "Missed our connection flight. Time to close terminal to far away. Ran to gate closed as we got there."
Cons: "Spending night in Chicago O'hare airport where we rerouted."
Cons: "The seats, are getting Narrow. Very constricting."
Pros: "Crew was fine."
Cons: "The first class seats on these newer 737-800s are VERY disappointing. Width is ok, but legroom is on par with economy expectations. With my tray out and the person in front of me reclined, I could barely see my laptop. There is also very little space under the seats, especially for the aisle seat."
Pros: "Nothing n"
Cons: "Again - door broken on connecting flight as was the first leg. American needs to better maintain their planes. This is ridiculous"
Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Not expecting high end services but not even mediocre service was done."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hrs, unorganized, seats uncomfortable, over crowded. Almost missed my layover flight."
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Cons: "Delay in boarding due issue with aircraft"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "No snacks because of short trip, so can’t rate properly."
Cons: "Asked for ginger ale, was not given one"
Cons: "The service was poor and not friendly. They over sold the flight and put the stress into customers. They kept the flight so cold that I had 2 blankets and still shivering. The seats are so darn tight that the people next to me didn’t fit and I had to sit at a angle for 5 hours. What is dissatisfying is that airlines will continue to treat customers without compassion. We pay for a service and should not be yelled at when you over sell a flight and demand people to check in carry on bags."
Pros: "It was an average flight"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hrs and it wasn't due to weather"
Pros: "Flight was bumpy because of storms in the area but the crew did a great job of keeping it calm and making sure passengers were taken care of."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac when we landed for 20 mins for a reason not really made clear. The captain said that the alley was blocked but didn’t really keep us informed other wise."
Cons: "The plane was so hot, by the time we landed everyone was literally dripping from sweat. It was so uncomfortable that it was cooler outside of the plane even though it was 83 degrees when we landed."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nisy airplane and hard seats."
Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Pros: "Do you really think there is anything to like about flying these days. We are sardines pack on a your planes."
Cons: "Purchased business class seats, boarded in group 5. Had no where to put my 1 backpack. All the storage up front was gone. Why should I pay extra for a seat if I have to wait for everyone to get off the plane so I can go back 10 seat rows to get my bag. Dirty tray tables."
Pros: "Everyone was nice. Flight left on time an landed early."
Cons: "The front row for the exit is too small. The diagram i looked at said it was an exit row on the 2nd leg of my flight. It wasnt!! Uncomortable for my legs. Im 6'3"
Pros: "Ensured that the connecting passengers boarded the flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was ok."
Cons: "The entertainment system failed again."
Pros: "The crew was very welcoming."
Cons: "The weather caused a bit of turbulence."
Pros: "Everything but the boarding."
Cons: "The boarding seemed to take forever. The crew could’ve performed the boarding process while getting the people who were waiting for upgrades at the same time. Splitting work could’ve worked and to not let all of us wait."
Cons: "Late over an hour due to maintenance issues Did not receive the seats we paid for due to plane change"
Pros: "Once we got flying, everything was fine."
Cons: "Gate changes had passengers walking from one end of Terminal 3 at O'Hare to the other twice."
Pros: "This is a modern airplane with great features"
Cons: "The seats are way to narrow"
Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Everyone was polite and accommodating. The entertainment available was on point. The food was both tasty and offered often."
Cons: "The seat were ok. There was not enough legroom, but honestly no airline has enough unless its business of first class. The Wi-Fi availability was misleading, though it did not advertise that it was free."
Pros: "The crew was extremely personable, friendly, courteous and helpful. They must have come down the aisles about 20 times during the trip."
Cons: "The food was not great and the movie selection was pretty bad."
Pros: "The flight was short and all went well."
Cons: "crew coming in from another flight was late. Then, according to announcement our plane had been sitting 2 hours and they would have to call for power. It was already a late night flight, now delayed 1 1/2 hours leaving. The plane interior was hot, that helped with our displeasure."
Pros: "I was able to try the recently redesigned coach cabin seats which are OK for a short flight. But I wouldn't want to be seating in them for more than 2 to 3 hours top specially on the window or worse a middle seat. The crew was attentive up to a point (just saw them boarding and when given a cracker and some water during the flight). I think American can do a better job providing comfortable seats or even a nicer meal during flights."
Cons: "Seats are short of cramped. If you are large size avoid windows and middle."
Pros: "Everything was crew, drinks and the flight was great!"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the seats are too close together. I understand the desire to maximize quantity; I do however think that AA has gone too far. Leg room is necessary, not a luxury. The cost of the ticket should include leg room."
Pros: "Flight left on time. Staff was excellent like always."
Cons: "No outlets on the plane. My flight was suppose to have WiFi but it didn't work."
Cons: "Unexplained delay, more than 4 hours. Terrible"
Cons: "I didn't get ANY flight status reports until I had arrived and was at my destination for the night!! American did a fine job. I got updates TODAY on my flight and baggage claim for yesterdays flight form you!!! Your service sucked balls!!"
Cons: "Boarded small plane too early Air conditioning did not work...sweated whole flight No beverage service seats too small for an adult, and I am only 5'-5""
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."
Pros: "Great steward with fabulous sense of humor"
Pros: "how easy it was to purchase ticket on kayak."
Cons: "Being charged for my checked bag unexpectedly at check in."
Pros: "It’s been a while since I have flown United, but I was pleasantly surprised by how great the crew on both of my flights were. I flew basic economy and was treated better and had as much leg room as with “upgraded service” from another carrier with an American name. After this experience I’ll go out of my way to book on United. Thanks"
Pros: "Great to be home in time"
Pros: "Friendliness of crew."
Cons: "Seating on United sucks. Seats are not comfortable and don't recline to the degree that Deltas does for standard cabin. Boarding for both my united flights has always been delayed. they are never on time. Ill go back with Delta and pay a little extra for the comfort and timeliness."
Pros: "20 minutes early landing, despite the weather"
Cons: "Boarding before scheduled time was not pre announced, seats lack legroom, unlikely to choose United again"
Pros: "We had a two hour delay due to mechanical issues. Long time to fix it,"
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: "The 787. Great plane. Great ride."
Cons: "Crew members on all 37 United flights that I have taken in the past 19 months have been rude, unpleasant and grumpy. They do not accommodate modern methods of making children comfortable in seats, such as the use of jetkids and jetbox accessories. I have experienced lies (yes, I’ll be back with more water! Sure, I’ll check for some eye wash for your wife.), misleading (embellishing rules, enforcing rules that do not exist) and overall terrible behavior. With the exception of a few ground crew members who’ve shone through, my interactions with United staff have not been good."
Cons: "Didn’t get bags transferred from United flight from Washington DC to the flight from Munchen to Athens. We made it to gate just in time. Bags did not. Maybe there is some way to increase layover time On this international flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Jet Plane"
Cons: "No entertainment. No charging point for personal device in today's age. Seats that can't get any smaller, yet, still does. Seats that barely recline and yet have to be brought upright during take-off and landing. Maybe common theme between airlines, but, it stands out. Salty pretzels probably the poorest choice for free handout snacks. No choice of course."
Cons: "It was delayed due to my earlier trip but united tried to get me a connection which was atleaogood. The overall trip was 24 hours and due to all these delays my trip took 31 hours."
Pros: "Comfortable and on time!"
Cons: "Plane was equipped with Direct TV but the TVs were not powered on and that was very disappointing."
Pros: "Crew members were pleasant"
Cons: "Gate was changed to a gate much farther away. Flight was delayed for 4 different reasons all of which were unlikely. We left 4 hours late. On board the plane was freezing cold. I will NEVER fly United Airlines again."
Pros: "The flight was nice crew was nice"
Cons: "The fact it took three calls to get chair to the gate my knees and back is not good.. Some places on a flight the airline took one call few min chair was there this was the longest I had to wait and get someone to call and call"
Pros: "The short lines for boarding, but then again these were small flights. The flights taking off early when all passengers were boarded. The flights arriving much earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "The basic economy flight is bullshit. We both know that it's better to just buy an economic flight. So why even pretend and lie to customers to precast the basic economy flight knowing full well that's just going to force them to have to check in their bags which end up costing more than an economic flight? Why not just offer the regular economy flight price and leave it at that. If the overhead bins are full, offer the passengers a chance to check in their bags for free. What you're doing is preying on the poor who already do not have much which is why they choose the basic economy flight without realizing the full extent of the set up."
Cons: "Plane hot and crowded"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very efficient, professional and kind. It was a dramatic improvement from past experience."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew was good and the snack was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seat was absolute misery. I spent the second half of the flight constantly fidgeting trying to find a comfortable position that didn't feel like it was ruining my back. I was unsuccessful. Entertainment options were shocking. Each seat had a screen, but there was no free VOD. The only free option was a stream of two episodes of a terrible discovery show padded with ads to fill 4 hours. I tried to pull my laptop out to watch anything else, but the seat was too small to open a 15" laptop."
Pros: "it was ok just a long flight"
Cons: "food too high"
Cons: "loudspeaker was way too loud - my hearing was fine before the flight...."
Cons: "Food was embarrassingly poor I would rather pay additional fees to upgrade to s quality meal Bags in Edinburgh took over an hour and a half to retrieve But, the flight was safe and the crew very good"
Pros: "The plane arrived safely in Newark"
Cons: "The plane left 7 hours late - for a 45 min flight. I got on another flight (only becuase I sought a solution to arri9ving 7 hrs late) but still arrived several hours after my determined arrival time. No compenatio or apology."
Cons: "Air temperature was too warm which caused nausea."
Pros: "Friendly staff, smooth flight"
Cons: "Very early in the morning We had to drive to Chicago to catch our flight to Sarasota. (Since our flight was delayed over 2.5 hrs) So since our car was in Chicago, we did NOT take the flight to Peoria."
Pros: "The airport location was convenient."
Cons: "Flight delays up to 11hrs. Poor food. Poor flight crew hospitality."
Pros: "No complaints really. The staff was incredible. The snacks were great. (Free & otherwise) Free non alcoholic beverages. It was a smooth ride I got on and off quickly. (15 min"
Cons: "The price of Wi-Fi. The price of on flight entertainment. Nothing for free, but that's no big deal cause I came prepared."
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "United did nothing to help me get home to my wife whom went InTo labor today when one of their flights got delayed which in turn made me miss my flight from Newark to west palm beach the risk of missing our first child's birth was supposed to be made better by a 10$ food voucher and a oh well that I had to spend the night in an airport and wait another 12 hours to be by my wife's side !! How does a billion dollar company not have any flights after 8 pm ?? Ridiculous The"
Cons: "It was delayed a day"
Cons: "The baby crying!"
Cons: "No fee for movies on international flight"
Cons: "Cramped plane. Not enough space. Late boarding and then sat on the tarmac for a while."
Pros: "Didn't take me long to rebook the flight when it got cancelled due to weather/pilots timing out"
Cons: "The way the whole thing was handled. I ended up flying on the 5th because of the issues with weather. My general problem was with the way the situation was handled. We shouldn't have boarded the plane on the 4th given the fact that the pilots were probably gonna time out anyway. Instead of wasting time, the protocol should've been to begin rebooking everybody to another flight. Just my two cents"
Cons: "Flight was late departing!"
Pros: "Fast boarding and departure"
Cons: "Had an aisle seat so was constantly getting bumped"
Pros: "Our names are Steve and Jan Hovde if you have any other questions about our flight concerns. We can be reached by phone at 360-332-8414. We did not call FAA, but still very much a concern. We have flown United other times and many other airlines and many Boeing 737's...we noticed other passengers looking at each other because of the clunking and growling sounds."
Cons: "most important I vowed I would try and call FAA about safety concerns with the plane. Mechanical noises prior to take off , during flight(right fan whine) - could hear it when started engines in SF., Some loud clunking at take off bringing in landing wheels and again letting down for landing in Seattle. When plane came to stop at the gate, again some noises we have never heard before on 737's. Please check out that plane more closely. Part of our concern is that Pilot mentioned before take off that they had problems with scheduled 737 and they needed extra time to locate another 737 that could be used(Why our take off was rescheduled twice and different gate)......it seemed that one that had been mothballed may have been brought out to use......We did mention some of this tactfully to stewardess' standing near exit when we got off the plane(She seemed surprised and wondered what we were talking about. We were so thankful we made it. We just figured that flight crew would be tracking these odd noises and pass along to captain if he couldn't hear."
Pros: "Absolutely no delay. Great assistance provided by flight attendants to ensure that everyone quickly secured their hand luggage."
Cons: "No issues to complain about"
Cons: "seats too small and close together. very bad seating. Would fly United again only if no other flight available."
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed, then we taxied and had to return to the terminal for maintainence. We were told it would take 20 min but it was much longer. Maybe an hour, hour and a half."
Cons: "Somehow I ended up with a middle seat all three flights I took. I would have upgraded if offered. Plane wasn't all that comfortable. All and all, you guys got me where I needed to go, so I can't really complain. Thank you"
Pros: "Entertainment was good Snack provided was ok"
Cons: "The food could have been better, with some choice for children Service was ok, the flight was really empty but felt we didn't get much better attention. Everything was still a rush."
Pros: "From Chicago to San Francisco was great"
Pros: "Great stewardess"
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Pros: "UA did a good job, but Houston International was closed off/on due to bad weather, so it was a mess."
Cons: "Apathetic non communities. Felt like it was part of a herd. They cancelled my flight and had to miss work"
Pros: "That I finally got there a day later. I only had carry on bags, so they weren't lost."
Cons: "At OHare the gate agent sent me to the wrong gate and plane for my flight. I did not arrive Thursday at 8:30 pm as scheduled. Customer service put me on "red eye" to Dulles for the next flight to Charleston, without motel or meal vouchers. I couldnt sleep on the benches there due to asthma and diabetic issues. I arrived Friday 2:30 pm 17 hours late. Dulles overnight cleaning staff helped more than agents at OHare."
Pros: "Got delayed at the gate, New flight plan lead to more fuel being needed. Over an hour at the gate."
Cons: "My seat's audio port was broken. Multiple earphones did not work properly"
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."
