It wasn’t possible to connect my own iPad to the entertainment system. I really like that feature. In addition, the entertainment system was spotty at times.
More food options on a 4 hour flight

Pros: "The boarding was great and moved very well. The crew super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "More information on how to use the complimentary Wifi in the cabin. I had the app and it helped me but it’s not immediately in front of you so the passenger can decide. You guys offer WiFi in packages and most of the other airlines do not."
Pros: "On time, service was good"
Cons: "Food, I can't understand why the main course has such a poor taste and looks like it was eaten before."
Cons: "Temperature of cabin was too cold. My feet were icy."
Cons: "More choices for the meal menu"
Pros: "I liked the free "meal". I chose the cheese. Reminds me of airlines 15 years ago."
Cons: "Main cabin is not built for people 6 feet tall. My body feels awful after sitting in those seats for 5-6 hours. Reclining causes the seat to shift forward, creating even LESS leg room!"
Pros: "Great flight attendants and service. Plenty of entertainment selection to make the long flight enjoyable. The boarding was chaotic because of the airport facility."
Cons: "The airport is too small for loading a full international flight."
Pros: "Missed it"
Cons: "Give me back money"
Pros: "Lovely crew. The food was tasty."
Cons: "It would’ve been nice to make up some flight time in the air from the 4 hour delay and multiple gate changes that were all announced too late to delay a trip to the airport :("
Cons: "Late boarding. Slow de-boarding."
Cons: "My 'window' seat had no window! Feeling was claustrophobic"

Cons: "Boarding at JFK a nightmare."

Cons: "Plane 1hr late taking off"
Cons: "Wheelchair shortage on arrival, although I had one reserved. Waited for a while then walked. Not ideal. Very long wait for bus to rental car center."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than an hour. My seat's entertainment system was broken, so an 8 hour flight with not much to do other than sleep."
Pros: "Seat comfort and crew. Atlanta customs was much more efficient in processing people."
Cons: "The flight from. JFK to Barcelona was delayed as well. Their computers were down in Atlanta. So everyone had to have their name hand typed into a computer when boarding. Then the pilot said that our bags are usually weighed and computerized for even distribution on the plane. That system was also down, so we sat on the runway waiting for that problem to be fixed. When we arrived at Barcelona, I unpacked and discovered a jacket and pants in my luggage were wet. The only place that could have happened was at JfK during their rain storm and the luggage weight issue."
Pros: "The flight crew were awesome"
Cons: "Not exactly the flight but the attendant white lady in Atlanta at the gate needs to sharpen her customer service skills, a bit obvious on who she prefers to deal with, as a foreigner and over 25 years of experience in dealing with the public, I felt the indifference. I frequently fly and my choice of airline is delta, this by far has been the only dissappointnent. Please do make sure this gets to the person in charge."
Pros: "delayed flight by Skywest or West jet - Delta subsidiary / affiliate. it’s the 2nd flight in a row that’s delayed. but much better than American Airlines."

Pros: "Roomier than a lot of airplanes."

Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Cons: "Didn’t know that I didn’t have a window on the row I was on"
Cons: "Customer Service was horrid except for last attendant. At one point one rep sent us running out of a secured area to retrieve our luggage and then go to British Airways for connection. We had 45 minutes in front of BA ticket rep to get us on BA182 and they took so long we missed the boarding due to reps slow processing to issue ticket. Then we were stuck outside of secured area."
Pros: "Over all everything specially we got in earlier than expected"
Pros: "Great to have in flight TV"
Cons: "Copilot was an hour late, inexplicably"
Pros: "Got upgraded to 1st / Business class."
Cons: "Due to weather the power outage in ATL, the flight out of PHL was delayed by about 30 minutes. No movies. No meals."
Pros: "I was a little concerned flying West Jet due to poor experiences in the past with Delta, but the flights were on time, staff friendly and accommodating and the plane very comfortable."

Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."
Pros: "On time service &no damaged luggage!"
Pros: "i was able to use wifi during the flight which made the time pass by fast."
Cons: "i asked one of the ladies if they had blankets since the plane was freezing she told me no but everyone in first class recived a blanket whether they used it or not. i guess the people in zone 2 and zone 3 dont matter. the seats are the worst! they dont even sit at a 90 degree angle your more like sitting forward."
Pros: "Entertainment system was good, great crew, great food, great service"

Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Pros: "The gate agent helped half a dozen people (not including those described below) understand they were boarding with the wrong group."
Cons: "Fully one-quarter of the passengers boarded as disability or premium. This included a party of eight that boarded with one person in a wheelchair because "We're all together.""
Pros: "Flight was very smooth, and crew would actually smile. Coach Sears very cramp."
Cons: "Poor intercom. Could not hear pilot's announcements. Gate staff not very friendly. Sears assigned while boarding...didn't know until then if my wife and I would sit together."

Cons: "More food."
Pros: "Friend service"
Cons: "Food, seat comfort."
Cons: "going through customs at the airport until barcelona takes in inordinate amount of time."
Pros: "The entertainment and crew in flight(not the ticket crew)"
Cons: "First of all, We were delayed 5 hours, I did not know finnair was operated by American Airlines(I wouldn’t never bought this thickets) we so many issues with AA in the past that we refused to fly with them, on top of all this they were trying to split us up(2 times) I bought 2 ticket for a reason..."
Cons: "Not comfortable seating bad food fruits were smiling and they made me to check in my carry on bag to charge $60 Will not recommend or travel international again with this airline"
Pros: "Confort and good treatment."
Cons: "I didn’t have the opportunity to chiíes seats."
Cons: "Kept the lights on for too long serving dinner. Forgot to serve the middle section beverages during breakfast."
Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable and spacious"
Cons: "It was super cold, not even with 2 blankets made it"
Pros: "Staff was cheerful and nice"
Cons: "same as above. Was not on this flight"
Pros: "Upgrade to economy premium was well worth the extra fee."
Cons: "Coffee could have been better."
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, the service and the food was great."
Pros: "The new plane!"
Cons: "Hmmm, everything. First we didn’t get the seats we selected, then we had to pay an extra 800 for my family to sit together. Took about an hour waiting on the tarmac. Then to top it off American Airlines broke my stroller and NO apology. Never again with a third party site or American Airlines"
Pros: "Great service and clean airplane."
Pros: "Eventually, the actual flight was fine."
Cons: "Initially delayed by 3hours (mechanical) which was American Eagle couldn’t get their “bucket of bolts” to Springfield, MO on time so we missed our flight out of Charlotte to Barcelona. Then we were rerouted through Chicago, but lost our first class seats and were bumped back to coach. This was after I had bought first class tickets for the entire trip only to be told 3 months before leaving that AA decided to switch planes on our domestic flight so there’s were no first class seats. THEN, in Chicago we tried to get first class seats on British Airways which would have been fine but After being sent to another terminal (after the bus to that terminal had stopped running) we were turned back because British Airways wouldn’t accept the boarding pass that AA had issued us. Now, having to go back to the first terminal to DISCUSS all this, we miss that flight and wind up stuck in Chicago for another 24 hours. Then, that flight was delayed by 3 hours, so we lost a day and a half of our vacation."
Pros: "Didn’t expect a hot dinner or a breffy, so that was nice!"
Cons: "Felt crowded for such a long flight, but the flight crew was great."
Pros: "Service was quick, comfort flight, excellent service. This was the best flight so far."
Cons: "To many kids crying, it was loud."
Cons: "The cabin crew on the flight to Barcelona acted like they really didn't want to be there. From telling me that they'd serve everyone when they had the chance when I asked for water to shouting down the aisles to each other while passengers tried to sleep and having an overall feeling of being incredibly stressed out by basic requests (a bottle of water, help operating the entertainment screen, etc), they made the flight decidedly less enjoyable than an intercontinental flight in economy class already is. They were not rude to me personally, more just disinterested and apathetic, but I did witness one of the flight attendants being downright rude to another passenger. This was not a British Airways crew, but an American Airlines crew, and they treated us like they were doing us a favor by paying us any attention rather than treating us like it is their job to serve passengers courteously."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was cold and food could have been better."
Pros: "They announce in the local language."
Pros: "much room. great entertainment. great crew"
Pros: "The confort seat, and service"
Cons: "Crew didn't walk around to offer wanter/drinks except during meal time and it would have been nice if they did."
Pros: "The airplane was nice and comfortable"
Pros: "seats and space were good"
Cons: "2 hour delay and freezing cold inside the plane"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the food was very good!we left over two hours after the scheduled departure time."
Cons: "I did not like having to wait to depart."
Cons: "They broke a wheel on my luggage."
Pros: "It was okay flight little late on departure but could be better"
Cons: "Seats are not roomy or comfortable"
Cons: "There was a hour delay, waiting for crew. But the flight and crew were very competent."
Pros: "Newer plane and one very friendly male flight attendant."
Cons: "Aside from one younger male flight attendant the service was terrible. They did not pick up garbage and ran out of meal selections. One flight attendant by the name of Valerie was incredibly rude. I would recommend American Airlines invest in younger and more professional flight attendants."
Pros: "Flight and landing were smooth."
Cons: "Touch screen worked sporadically. Wifi never worked. Boarding plane was very unorganized."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it's not even delay, but the terrible incompetent unprofessional way this was handled."
Pros: "I didn't make the flight due to a delay/cancellation."
Cons: "I missed this flight."
Cons: "Passengers too crammed in closer together."
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to change my seat to sit with my husband because there were empty seats."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that children sitting behind us weren't told to stop kicking the chair. They also spoke loudly when it was quiet and thus woke me up from my sleep. We were delayed leaving due to unforeseen circumstances, but our arrival time was only 15 minutes later. There was a lot of turbulence during this flight."
Cons: "In January, we booked a 5:40pm fight through Kayak to Barcelona. July 7th, the day before our flight kayak sent us an email with a different time. Apparently, this flight had been dropped and completely changed to 5 hours later on February 2nd. Kayak didn't care to tell us until the day before. We ended up having to book a new connecting flight which cost us $250. Ive always booked with kayak and now I fear I will never again. I would like a refund for the $250 or a flight stipend. My name is sarah chambers"
Cons: "Pretty much everything"
Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit messy"
Pros: "Clean equipment and good food"
Pros: "The meals were good and the flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. The seat my husband was sitting in (30A window seat), the touch screen seemed to have some technical issues, for it did not recognize when you touch the screen. It was a bit frustrating trying to select entertainment. Also, when checking in from our original departure location, MCO, we were not provided our boarding pass or luggage tags for our final destination, Barcelona, only to our connecting flight, Philadelphia. The connecting flight was delayed in MCO for an 1 hour and a half, after we have boarded the plane, therefore almost cost us to be late for our final flight to Barcelona. Since we were not given our boarding passes for PHL to BCL it caused confusion when trying to board our plane in PHL to Barcelona, and also caused for our baggage to not arrive with the flight. After landing, we spent an additional 2 hours at the Airport going through customs, and waiting on line for the lost and found desk for baggage in Barcelona. The lost and found desk had three agents available to assist, however we can only talk to one which was designated specifically for American Airlines. This caused a very long wait time of 1 hour. We were advised the bags stayed in Phildelaphia since they did not have the additional luggage tags, and will not arrive till the next day. Overall the experience within the Airport service desks and baggage check in' s was not a pleasant experience. I believe many of these issues could have been avoided if the American Airlines agents were more knowledgeable and attentive."
Pros: "The economy seats were relatively spacious and had a full TV menu and outlet to charge devices."
Cons: "For a red eye they could perhaps ask people to turn off their lights, but it doesn't matter."
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."
Pros: "Everything. I had no problems at all when coming to Barcelona last week!!"
Pros: "The TVs/back of the chairs were great because they could shut off completely so there was no screen glare when you want to sleep, the headphone jack worked with good sound quality, and there was a decent movie selection. Staff was courteous and the food was fine."
Cons: "This flight itself was great overall. No complaints. The only thing I didn't like was that I'd wanted to book a return direct flight on American Airlines as well, but the price skyrocketed from a few hundred to over $2200, which is just outrageous, so I booked TAP Portugal instead. My friend paid under $600 round trip and it boggles the mind that the same flights shot up to over $2k... It's not realistic to expect customers to stay loyal to an airline that prices them out."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous."
Cons: "Delayed departure."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour because crew announced there was a discrepancy between # passengers boarding central records. Flight crew didn't do anything to comfort passengers during this. Captain made one announcement about turbulence once at the beginning but nothing else for 1/2 hour or longer long turbulence period. Crew took away tray without asking. Ran out of water. Doors did not open for quite awhile after docking but crew said nothing. Seats so small one had to keep elbows glued to body to eat without touching neighbors. Felt like cattle being driven to slaughter. Min"
9 minute layover. I ran. With my cane. Last to board. Why, oh why, was I scheduled for this.
My wife and I were re-routed via Zurich, and I am glad the lady who did this at check-in noticed asked us for the right option. She confided in us that the flight to Newark was full, and I wondered why United had overbooked us in the first place.
Cons: "The gate changed twice and the plane was a little cramped and not full. A smaller more spacious plane would have been more comfortable experience."
Pros: "Flight was smooth the whole time"
Cons: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "The staff was impeccable. Boarding was great. My seat was not comfortable, but what can we say?"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on board. That was not cool. We had to download the app, but WiFi was not included."
Cons: "Air conditioning was not working. Very hot on plan. Light switch above my seat was broken. Luggage crew cracked off one of the “feet” on my luggage. Overall terrible service and flight."
Cons: "The 5+ hour delay was simply horrible"
Pros: "We had a wheel chair person and they made it very easy to drop off at the gate and get it at the destination gate. Also they drove us over to the baggage area due to many elevation changes required to reach this area."
Cons: "The obtaining of the boarding pass in Newark needed more people to help get the boarding pass. I like the option to use a machine if I want to generate a boarding pass but there were issues with the machines and not enough people to help alleviate the backup of people having to wait."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot."
Pros: "It was fine. It was a short flight, so I didn't get food, or use any of the entertainment or anything like that. It was a little cramped though, but, like I said it was a short flight, so that was fine."
Cons: "I'm not sure the stewardess is really a morning person. She wasn't rude or anything, but she wasn't nice either. :)"
Pros: "Length of flight"
Cons: "No screen on seat for entertainment"
Cons: "Awful crew - discrimination"
Pros: "Great crew, food was good"
Cons: "Still need updated seating for room and comfort"
Pros: "Flight mechanics (checkin, luggage, boarding), in cabin service were allfine."
Pros: "I felt spoiled with all the service and the ice cream was a special treat. I had never gotten ice cream on an oversea trip. Thanks."
Cons: "I wished that some of the children would have left the window blinds down so we could sleep."
Cons: "Delayed over 6 hours. United should have made replacement plane available sooner."
Cons: "Delay caused missed flight. Staff did not accomidate efficiently. Ended up on a much later flight and was treated unfairly."
Pros: "Can’t think of a thing on this flight."
Cons: "Delay after delay. Took way too long for de-icing. The storage compartmemt door got stuck and I could not get my bag out. The flight attendant blamed the issue on my bag. She claimed it was too big. It was not. I have carried the bag on several flights with similar planes, the gate agent slowed it on the plane as many have, and I had no issue opening and closing other compartment as I tried a couple after maintenance retrieved my bag."
Pros: "Good service, being on time or early! Food was good. Keeping it dark for several hours to allow for sleep is good! I would do this flight again hoping for similar experience."
Cons: "I thought I was flying Lufthansa but got United which is the worst Airline in my opinion. Delayed 3 hours and poor service."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and temperature"
Pros: "Our flight to Madrid was simple and uncomplicated. The boarding process was flawless, and the flight itself wasn't as full as I expected. My wife and I had three seats in which to spread out."
Cons: "The audio jack in my seat had some kind of short in it. I had to hold the wire to my earbuds in a certain way to hear properly."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for over 2 hours and nobody from United told us it is delayed and for how long etc. Customer service not very helpful"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food was terrible the service wasn't great not even one the flight attendant walked by and offered bottles of water or dessert besides the 2 meals served. The restroom always were out of tissu paper and were not maintained."
Pros: "Speed of flight"
Pros: "This was a direct red eye flight to Madrid"
Cons: "I paid 1308$ for the tickets, I wasn't expecting first class experience but honestly I was just shocked. First off the flight attendant was so rude, whenever I asked for something or said thank you she would just stare at me and not respond. I mean I get it, it's a red eye flight I wasn't expecting anyone to be chipper. But honestly that was especially rude having to deal with her for the 6 hour trip to Madrid. Second the food was especially disgusting. The chicken was in this white sauce that looked like discharge and if taste like rubber. The bread was hard to bite into. Everything was so stale and tasted so bad I wondered how long they had that food sitting there. My last trip to Europe I flew Swiss air to Italy they had the best customer service and the food didn't taste like I was eating cardboard in jail. I am never flying united airlines to Europe again. It is too long of a trip for subpar service."
Cons: "Leg room is atrocious. Delayed an hour because of maintenance."
Pros: "lots of good movie choices"
Cons: "touch screens didn't always work easily"
Pros: "Food for purchase available is a good idea on long flights"
Cons: "People don't like surprises. Charging extra for seats, charging extra for luggage resulting in jammed overcrowded overhead bin space are not good ideas. United seats are smaller more cramped than your competitors making for an uncomfortable flight. Flight had no in flight entertainment or ability to charge mobile devices"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Chicago airport gate is so far away from other united flights I can't believe they don't provide a shuttle to it."
Pros: "I went a different route back to Denver I drove in a vehicle do the circumstances of a friend moving back to Colorado from Michigan. So I called ahead of time and let United Airlines know to go ahead and give my seat to anybody"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable (for economy), service pleasant, food nothing special but fine, entertainment good. Boarding was efficient; there was a slight delay due to de-icing, but that's normal"
Cons: "It was impossible to download a boarding pass on either Lufthansa's website or any other (code share with United). Lufthansa gives you a number to call but they are open only 9-5 weekdays; when I called their regular office, I listened to a very annoying message routing for 15 minutes before hanging up. They have to work this out better, though I must say that at the United gate I could print it out easily at the machine, and the staff there was exceptionally helpful"
Cons: "it got cancelled and di not have"
Pros: "Friendly and polite! Crew."
Cons: "Middle seat. Space too small."
Pros: "I usually fly spirit"
Cons: "Taxied on the tarmac in Chicago for almost as long as we were in the air from South Bend. Arrived too early and there was no gate. By the time we finally deplaned, my next flight was already boarding."
Pros: "Fast. On time. Great service"
Pros: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
Cons: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
Pros: "The Argentinian lady that help us at the counter. She safe us from missing the flight."
Cons: "The long waiting with customs and that the connection were too far away to drop the baggage"
Pros: "The flight crew got us there quickly and safely."
Cons: "Food was sub par but that is about what you can expect from any US carrier, the crew was disorganized and let people move around before taking off making people finding their seats occupied on arrival. Service members were curt and woke us up for some kind of morning snack they call breakfast when my guest and I were clearly asleep and not interested. I really wish this flight was operated by Lufthansa..."
Pros: "Food was pretty tasty and entertainment worked well."
Cons: "The crew was extremely rude and seemed annoyed a passenger would even think of asking for assistance."
Cons: "No alternative options given. Slow response. No retrieval of email confirmation after purchase of trip. Flight was delayed and no notice was given. Rental car had to ordered last minute and was left without room and board for the night. Had to call again for actual co formation of second flight because no notice was given,"
Pros: "The United crew were extremely pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "Lufthansa's website was confusing and their agents contradicted one another as we unsuccessfully attempted to reserve seats. No in flight entertainment was available"
Cons: "How about getting friendlier staff. The male flight attendants were insanely rude."
Pros: "Free direct tv, the flight was delayed at ewr due to not having an updated procedures manual"
Cons: "Delayed flight, but fidget in on time"
Cons: "Displaced to another delayed flight 6 hours in total!!!!! Lost of other connections Send me to Frankfurt and then to Madrid one day after programmed The baggage lost Should reimburse us"
Pros: "Crew were gracious & helpful. Plane left and arrived on time. Frequent offers of beverages."
Cons: "There was no space for legs and feet. Rows are too close together in economy. Only my left foot could extend forward - a metal box was bolted to the floor where a right foot would go. Seatback pockets with magazines, headphones, etc take space that knees require. Then when my front neighbor fully reclined for 7 hours, I was really pinned in (middle seat of center section). It can't be healthy to be physically restricted for so long. Very uncomfortable. Ryanair seats packed this close (for much shorter flights) don't seem to have floor obstruction, and eliminate the pockets and recline features which helps."
