Pros: "Flight crew was ok."
Cons: "Bag check was $30, "self service", then directed to wrong line to drop. Flight delayed 3 times and an hour and a half. Jam packed plane. Pay for seats. This is discount airline tactics, not a strategy/market American Airlines presents itself as. Why pay premium if, in the end, they are no different?"

Cons: "Beat up baggage"
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "Actually pushed back from gate on time in Philadelphia. Took about 25 minutes from then til take off. Landed only a few minutes behind schedule. Crew was pleasant. Food was okay."
Cons: "It was a Finnair flight but operated by American Airlines. I booked through Justfly.com and paid extra for what I thought were our seats. Don’t pay Justfly for seating choice as the operating airline can switch your seats. Online checkin was difficult as I tried Finnair first with no luck, then got somewhere with American. Seats were not very comfortable but I guess that’s what you get in economy."
Pros: "The flight was on time and I was upgraded to First Class!"
Cons: "Gogo WiFi didn’t work"

Cons: "Weather was the issue in Toronto on December 29, 2017. However, We're in Canada, Toronto specifically and we've dealt with weather like this NUMEROUS times. For Air Canada to cancel flights 2 times in a row without any further communications with any of us... To tell us when we'd be rebooked, how, etc. is horrible. I work in the transportation industry which is American based and we can handle this much better than Air Canada. Awful... Wendell/Gate Agent said he couldn't rebook my flight until the 31st, but when I got home I called air Canada and she was able to rebook me on the 30th with no issues. Nonsense. Wendell didn't care, he was tired, yawned in our faces like it was acceptable. Awful service. I'm flying with Air Canada on my way from India in the next couple of weeks I hope I get better service. Otherwise, completion will be my only option."
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed I never made it to Montreal"

Cons: "There was some confusion during boarding."
Pros: "Seats were nice to recline and the in flight tv is much nicer than tablets etc. The in flight safety video is good and quick easy"

Pros: "The crew was lovely and made the trip easy."
Cons: "The boarding process was very strange. The "zone" loading makes no sense because I was at a window seat and other people had already sat down, so they had to get up so that I could go to my seat. Also the entertainment selection is very limited and poorly curated. I would recommend downloading Netflix shows on ur device before using their service."
Pros: "Everything was good with this flight - really no complaints. The staff was very friendly too!"
Cons: "Nothing - I really have nothing to complain about with this flight."
Pros: "Delayed and still on time overall great experience"

Cons: "My tv screen was not working, so I had no entertainment for the ride."
Cons: "From Toronto to London the price they charge is about the same as I pay from Toronto to Dubai using emirate or ettihad which is twice the distance. Toronto to London is a busy route so why charge such a high fare? Food. Be prepared for food that comes straight out of a cafeteria's frozen items. Entertainment. Slightly better than Turkish airline's which isn't an achievement by any means. Old aircrafts which don't have air vents. They really don't offer anything to you except charge you a lot for the busiest routes in the world. Try other airlines."
Pros: "I really like how friendly the flight staff was. The women and men were always smiling and courteous! They loaded the plane quickly and easily all while being helpful and smiling. On my flight from Moncton to Montreal I needed several vomit bags just in case some of my cousins wedding drinks wanted to come up. The stewardess quickly grabbed several for me and was very kind. Luckily nothing came up and I felt great at the end of the flight!"
Cons: "I don't fly as often as used to, but I've noticed that flight services have definitely gone down hill. Flying Air Canada was refreshing, so I don't have anything negative to say except I really wish I'd won tickets for my family and I back to Canada on Air Canada, hahaha!"

Pros: "Landing safely"
Cons: "Late departure. Poor food sale selection"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, long lines (2 hrs) to get info. People on the phone at times were blaming other airlines saying there isn't anything they can do. Did help to get hotel or taxi after being in the airport for 12 hrs in line. And couldn't get us on a flight to our destination until 2 days later...."
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 crew was polite. The flight was comfortable."
Pros: "My seat and space was good. The plane boarded on time and left on time."
Cons: "The stewardess Susan Schultz was rude at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Still sitting anothee 6 hours until departure"

Cons: "Noise level, couldn't use my light as it kept children up behind me and the guy next to me. Had to purchase food if desired."
Cons: "Air Canada sold the flight to United Airlines - and United moved the flight later and later and later. Six times. When this was combined with a weather delay, we ended up boarding at 11 PM and landing well after midnight. This is not what we signed up for and not what we wanted."
Pros: "Don't do it."
Cons: "The ticket was over- priced, the staff was untimely and indifferent, they were overbearing and incompetent."
Pros: "Leg room paid extra for economy plus"
Cons: "Paid extra for economy plus, my seat didnt recline"

Cons: "No food no entertainment. It's a sad change from how United used to be"
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."
Cons: "My first two flights were delayed (1st flight from Changsha to Beijing was delayed for 4 hours and 2nd flight from Beijing to Houston was delayed for 45 mins), so I missed my last flight from Houston to Orlando to go home! And! They lost both of my luggages! Now I'm forced to stay in Houston airport overnight to catch next flight to go home tomorrow morning. Air China did NOT help anything! They wouldn't even help me rebook my flight when they know I will miss my last connect flight."
Cons: "Got harrassed by the TSA"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 6 times and eventually cancelled. We missed a full day of our vacation. Hotel charged us a no-show fee since we couldn't make it on time due to the scheduling of the flights."
Cons: "The plane delay wasn't explained"
Cons: "Flight cancelled"

Cons: "It was an old plane being retired. The leg room was very small. It had no individual screens and not all the large cabin screens worked,"
Cons: "No entertainment provided"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by a hour and a half. They originally advised us that the delay was due to cleaning the inside of the airplane for the next passengers then they said they were fueling the plane then finally admitted there were maintenance issues with the plane. The delay cause most people to miss there connecting flights and have to stay the night since it being late evening. Inconvenience to customer"
Pros: "One flight, we sat next to ssomeone with a cat in her lap that threw up and pooped the whole time. The second flight a drunk man yelled the whole flight."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was excellent. Handled communication and our delay very well. Things changes once we were off the plane."

Cons: "Poor selection of movies Food was not very good - have had better on United/Lufthansa flights Very little leg room - I have short legs & leg room is usually not a problem, but this was particularly cramped"
Pros: "Fast loading and effect attendant"
Pros: "flights were on time with early arrivals."
Pros: "Cheap, non-stop flight to London."
Cons: "I'm glad that the ground crew id'd an APU leak prior to takeoff, but delayed flight for an hour. Crew was not memorable. VERY limited entertainment options available for a 7-hr flight. Was looking forward to experiencing Austrian Airlines, and upon check-in was pointed to the fine print on my booking: "Flight provided by United Airlines." Was hoping for a flight like the one we took on Turkish Airways a couple years ago -- a very high standard. But couldn't even get comfortable in the seats. The entertainment screen was very difficult to use; if there had been more options I probably wouldn't have been able to get to them anyway. Could barely reach above-seat vents, even when standing. All this was made worse when we had to walk through the First Class section when boarding and deplaning. The disparity between the comfort they experienced and the minimum standards in economy felt like Austrian Airlines/United were rubbing it in our faces that we didn't want to spend more on travel."
Pros: "Great flight. Pilot flew away from hurricane."
Pros: "stewards left me alonee to sleep"
Cons: "Over crowded back half of the plane... With the first 10 rows basically completely empty (only 8 people in the front 60 seats) That flight to anchorage arrived an hour early which is awesome, but we had to wait 45 min on the plane "for an empty gate" they said. There were at least 4 empty gates I could see from my window in the sand terminal we ended up deboarding at. Very frustrating"
Pros: "On time and direct"
Pros: "New clean plane, nice staff,"
Cons: "The seats literally only reclined half an inch on a 2 1/2 hour flight at 1:15am..that's evil"
Pros: "All crew members were extremely friendly from boarding to being on the flight, even the captain. When there was a small delay from so control flight attendants had provided great resources for people with connecting flights (they even offered their own phones with the United app to look up connecting flight information). The little waffle treats that were handed out for free were delicious and a nice break from the pretzels other airlines usually pass out."
Cons: "The space between my seat and the seat in front was very small and I'm not a big person. My seat wouldn't even recline during the flight to give me just a few extra inches."
Pros: "Two out of three pieces of luggage lost. You fall out of love after that. No matter what they do."
Cons: "The United Terminal at Newark is hideous and United should be ashamed to be associated with this poor quality. The airport is a construction zone at best. The aircraft is tiny, cramped and inadequate."
Pros: "excellent aircraft, roomy, comfortable and clean. the flight attendants were very attentive but not pushy"
Cons: "very full flight ... tourist season?"
Pros: "When they couldn't do their job they turned us over to American Airlines."
Cons: "Cancelled our scheduled 1:30 pm flight from Austin to Chicago for "scheduled" maintainence. We drove 3 hours and spent almost $300 for a rental car to get to Dallas for the flight they put us on, which we couldn't make. We told the check in counter and they gave us boarding passes for an American flight that wouldn't leave until 10:00 pm but that we could try to get on stand by for an earlier flight. At this point we were already missing a concert we were trying to make in Chicago. Another $150 gone. We were lucky enough to make the 8:30 pm Dallas to Chicago with American and arrived at Ohare by 11:00 pm. All in all United wasted $300 on a rental car, $150 of concert tickets and 5 hours of paid time off I can't get back. Very disappointed. PS: they gave us food vouchers at the airport to apologize and they were already expired. They couldn't do one thing right."
Pros: "Plenty of personal space. this first leg was actually quite pleasant I would give this leg a 4.5"
Cons: "The spicy snack was awful, I needed water, it took a while to get to me."
