Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"
Cons: "Had to wait over 30 minutes for my bag. Crew was unpleasant at best. Seats are too narrow."
Pros: "The flight wasn’t over booked or full"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable but being stuck between two other passengers who occupied some of my space was unnerving"
Cons: "Communication of delays in Charlotte. Working airplane, for a newer plane the one side of the screens didn’t work and the engine needed to bat after by another machine which is upsetting to think"
Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"
Cons: "You were out of earphones"
Cons: "1 hour 30 min late taking off."
Cons: "Our flight from Dublin was delayed 2-1/2 hours. So we missed our connecting flight to SJC. Instead of flying back at 5:15 PM we flew back at 8:13 PM. But that flight didn’t leave until 9:00 PM. They rerouted us to fly into SFO which is about 1-1/2 hours further than SJC from our house. Not good!"
Cons: "Inflexible employee, bad website, worse app. NO ROOM for mid seat traveler. Had to keep arms crossed the whole trip, Dangerous for somebody like me with respiratory illness and sleep apnea"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Be on time!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Working plane mechanical issues"
Pros: "Right on time"
Cons: "Wife on board"
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "They seem to have a lot of technical issues. The flight to my destination was cancelled about 8 hours prior to the flight due to maintenance issues with the plane. The computer system at the airport crashed on the return flight and caused a long delay. I won’t fly AA again."
Cons: "Flight was 90 min late due to mechanical issue. Missed next two flights, was rebooked in coach vs paid for first class."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "American needs to recognize that people in Miami are savage animals and don't have manners, which is relevant to getting off the plane. They come running up from the back and clog the aisles instead of letting people off row by row like the rest of the country does."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "My seatbelt was installed incorrectly."
Pros: "Courteous employee interactions from bag check/gate to arrival!"
Cons: "Everything was truly GREAT"
Cons: "You have no comfort at you seats"
Pros: "Great Service, Plane, Food, and Entertainment. Delayed 1 1/2 hours, but we were kept informed. Premium Economy seats are very comfortable and roomy."
Cons: "Got selected for additional screening...not your fault, but would have preferred to Not be screened in the jetway as other pax boarded in same jetway behind us."
Pros: "Flt on time crew and staff very polite"
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly. I was super tired so I slept almost the whole way through. But they still left a bottled water and snacks for me. Very thoughtful."
Cons: "Everything was good, no complaints."
Pros: "Landing in my city"
Cons: "The fact that I was delayed twice, given false information, had to wait to board because a flight attendant was late for her shift and then had to run from terminal to terminal to find my flight on my own because no representative could help me or show up."
Pros: "The flight was not filled with passengers, so a number of passengers had a whole row of three seats in the Dreamliner to sleep on."
Cons: "Super TSA lines in Denver and American employees were less than accomadating or did not meet any kind of customer service expectation. Terrible airline!"
Pros: "Crew were great. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Plane didn't have in-seat entertainment. Very hard to watch movies on small central screens. Movies were really old."
Cons: "Late departure. Sat on tarmac for 20 minutes"
Pros: "Nice new seats."
Cons: "The new seats are meant for "people shorter than 6 feet tall" as the flight attendant said to me. Is the airline industry deliberately discriminating against 6'6" people? 15% of the people you seat based on population are over 6'. I'm sick of paying more money for my long legs."
Cons: "The seats are very small the man next to me took up a quarter of my seat. I am not a bigger woman if a passenger is that large they should make them pay for two seats."
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Pros: "All I want is clear communication- not strung along. Reasonably comfortable seat - without person next to me too large for seat. Don't gate check my bag then I find plenty of space above my seat. Stop giving people food and drink on short flights as it is unnecessary and it constrains use of the bathroom"
Cons: "The scene of returning bags at the gate of arrival is awkward and other passengers take advantage - blocking walkway etc. please change system and adt a baggage handler to drop bags in a line along one side of the gateway while passengers wait along other side of the gateway"
Pros: "The crew was awesome."
Cons: "You guys lost our luggage!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, biscuits were nice"
Cons: "crammed like sardines, if you're over 5'6" You charged extra to get a little more leg room and if the roomier seats are sold, you're out of luck."
Cons: "Miserable food. Just horrible quality. Truly - and I'm not picky."
Cons: "While Delta are stepping up their snack & refreshment options, American seems to be joining the downhill slide group. If you don't like dry pretzels... choose another airline. Also had that wonderful experience of learning after boarding that you need to have downloaded the app to be able to reach any entertainment options. And, nowhere to plug the device to keep it alive. I didn't realise that AA was competing with the budget airlines like Rouge now..."
Cons: "close it!"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Plane is dated and a little crowded"
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Complainers. Shame on the parents who raised such pretentious a--holes."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very accommodating. One of the flight attendants encouraged me to take advantage of a seat that had more space so that I was more comfortable. Also when I casually talked about how I didn't get to eat before the flight she gave me two of the cinnamon crackers that are offered during the flight. This was very thoughtful and considerate of her. It was the little things and the attendants attention to detail that provided me an excellent experience."
Pros: "The entertainment screens and the new seats in business class were very nice"
Cons: "Held hostage on plane through storm. Teased for 6 hours then cancelled at midnight."
Pros: "A value for the money."
Cons: "Again, narrow seats and hard."
Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Nickeling and dimming by the airline -- extra fee for baggage checked -- by the way, airline broke the suitcase; very slow in Las Vegas to get the bags to the right carousel. -- took an extra 45 minutes because airline kept changing carousels. I' m frustrated wit the airline's reservations for seats -- none unless you pay extra. Flying (especially with American Airlines) used to be a pleasant experience. Now it is very hectic -- no reserved seats, cramped seats, little/ no food. I'll drive from now on."
Pros: "Crew was good. Relatively quick flight. Plane was not crowded, up to date plane."
Cons: "Food was not very good.. but typical airline fare. Japanese airlines do better food."
Pros: "Made the flight on standby. Nice efficient customer assistance on the ground and a nice smooth ontime flight."
Pros: "Crew was really nice"
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable, and we also waiting around on the ground 25 minutes until we were allowed to take off."
Pros: "Weather delays and the Boeing 737 problems a little out of their control. Some things could have done better, but some good employee efforts."
Cons: "Small planes are subpar.. Food useless. Baggage fees. When things go bad you're on your own."
Cons: "Try to keep the flights close to schedule and be honest about the delay."
Cons: "The basic economy fare is not explained well when purchasing ticket. Insane that you can buy a ticket for your toddler child who is flying with you but can not request to sit next to them. And no overhead carry on is ridiculous. Have had so many problems with United this may be the final straw."
Pros: "This is one of the longest flights in the world, but the flight attendants were cheerful throughout the flight. There was a good selection of movies and other entertainment in the seat back viewer."
Cons: "The food was mediocre. Lots of carbs, little protein, almost no fruits or vegetables. Not great for someone watching their weight."
Cons: "Missed flight"
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "Much more room, seats are more cushy"
Pros: "Fast & efficient"
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "Getting home safely!!"
Pros: "Crew and employees were all great, could not have gone any better."
Cons: "For a three hour flight, entertainment was lacking. The fact that there are ONLY paid options was kind of a slap in the face. Even just providing some radio stations to listen to would have been acceptable as a free option"
Cons: "Extremely small plane. No tv in headrests or on plane, Not enough room for everyone's carry on, no usb charging ports, don't offer unlimited snacks and beverages. They did not offer ANY drinks or snack on this flight which is ridiculous."
Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The first leg they announced Gate check early so there were no delays on boarding. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No United entertainment."
Cons: "Basic Economy fare will flag at the kiosk for check-in. I'd rather have a warning to indicate no Carry On bag allowed, and flag at the gate for them to check. Both legs of the trip caused an extra 5-10 minutes to wait for help to proceed"
Cons: "They should board the plane from the back to front, it just makes sense to do it this way, less people out if place and it would board faster"
Cons: "My flight was delayed (not due to weather) almost 4 hrs"
Pros: "The cabin crew themselves were great. The pilots offered my child to go see the cabin and everyone on the actual plane was great."
Cons: "The United employees at check in kiosk were very unorganized and unhelpful. I was traveling internationally with a small child and had two pieces of luggage to check in. Normally you just go to the counter once and they do everything including taking your luggage once they weigh it. Instead, I had to go to the self check in kiosk, then back to the counter to weigh my luggage, take off the one luggage from the scale, weigh the second one, then go back to the self check in kiosk, then was told to take off the second luggage as well, then finally went to a second counter where the lady handwritten my luggage tags and then was told to take both pieces of luggage and put them somewhere else altogether with specific directions on where to put them. This is something normally handled by the actual employees. Also, the check in dude yelled at my kid for putting in his name into the check in kiosk while we were waiting on the check in dude to do all those unorganized activities. He claimed it would break the software if my kid were to enter his name. I have told him that no, the software will not break if my child enters in his name."
Pros: "The courteous agent at the gate"
Cons: "Not being able to get a flight over 20 hours later!"
Pros: "Kansas City airport has to be the worst in the country. Over an hour to get through TSA."
Cons: "I was to be in Kansas City at 4PM and did not get in until after 11PM. Two planes with mechanical problems. The return flight was ahead of schedule all the way."
Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived early, great selection on entertainment system (and free)"
Cons: "It baffles me that meals aren't included on a 10 hour flight simply because it's a domestic flight. There are shorter (and cheaper) flights to London that include meals and alcohol."
Cons: "United sent out a series of delayed flight communications times that all contradicted each other. Flight updates did not give me adequate time to arrange my plans to accommodate their sporadic updates for fliget 4132, resulting in me missing my flight after paying a $95 dollar cab fare. May 1, 2017 United failed in my eyes of a loyal customer."
Pros: "One crew member had a sense of humor."
Cons: "My seat was broken and wouldn't stay in upright position. This really pissed off the passenger behind me. Crew kept telling me to put my seat upright, I kept having to tell them the seat was broken. Old airplane with no in-seat entertainment. they advertise on the seat that you can watch all their entertainment content for free, but then you have to pay for wifi to watch so it's not free then, is it? Every movie or show requires "additional software" so you have to purchase internet to do the download. This is an 11 hour flight, I would have appreciated being able to watch a movie or something without forking out $30. Flight was delayed, so we were low on time to make our connection. I asked a flight attendant twice if we could get help deplaning early or at least get moved up some rows since we were in the very back of a 747 (there were plenty of vacant seats). They said no, and told us that customs would only take a minute and that the other united flight knew we'd be coming and would wait. I don't usually fly united; other airlines typically will actively take steps to help (like moving connecting passengers to the front shortly before landing) if they are the cause of the delay. Customs had only one agent working and we were pretty much last in line so that process took over an hour. Just moving us 10 rows forward before landing would have made all the difference because our connecting flight closed its doors and taxied for takeoff less than 5 minutes before we arrived. They had some united employees guiding and directing a couple of passengers that were going to be late for a connection to LAX, but no help for those of us connecting to portland. Customer service didn't even offer a verbal apology. Last time I flew with united, I also had a terrible experience for different reasons. I did not intend to fly united for this flight, but I purchased tickets through and for Lufthansa, and this flight was regrettably operated by united. Another thing I don't like - the food was horrendous. It was a breakfast sandwich that was advertised as "hot and fresh" on the packaging but was served straight from the refrigerator. I was in the middle seats with one person to my left and two people to my right. Everyone took only one bite and threw away the rest. Just don't bother serving the food if it's going to be that bad, it's very wasteful. I always appreciate a hot towelette after a long overnight flight. United offered no such thing which was a first for me. Regarding boarding: they called us all up to line up in boarding groups and then we had to stand in line for 65 minutes. I have a bad back and had to sit on the carpet to avoid being last in line and not having space for my carry on bag. Would have been nicer if they would have just let us sit in the chairs at the gate in comfort until they were ready to board."
Pros: "I liked that the attendant suggested that anyone who wished, could move to unsold seats! Nice!"
Pros: "Seats were a little better on this flight. Crews were friendly and offered drinks a couple of times"
Pros: "That we didn't crash."
Cons: "No internet so made for a boring flight"
Pros: "I discovered it was was a united airlines flight, causing some confusion. This was false advertising."
Cons: "You sold me a Lufthansa flight but I got United Airlines one."
Cons: "AFTER boarding, you endeavored to remove 41 passengers. Only interaction was through an overwhelmed flight attendant, who barely spoke english. Was an experience that eroded confidence in safety, something one would imagine from a third world airline. Unacceptable. No direction. Only instruction was to call United."
Pros: "A smooth easy trip from Chattanooga to Newark."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and no touriblence"
Cons: "NOT ON TIME EVER THIS FLIGHT IS ALWAYS DELAYED HATE TAKING IT ONLY DO AS A LAST RESORT"
Pros: "Small airport, comfortable seating, polite crew"
Cons: "Snack wasn't my style"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and even fun"
Cons: "My seat did not recline at all. I believe it was broken."
Cons: "O'Hare airport. Bad signage to economy parking."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "She didn't smile Speak as we boarded Had attitude"
Cons: "crying babies and no food"
Pros: "The staff was very helpful. When overhead storage was full, bags were checked at no additional cost."
Cons: "Had trouble with the highly advertised entertainment. On the trip from Rapid to Chicago, the entertainment wouldn't work. I was fairly comfortable in my aisle seat, but think it I had to be in a center of window seat, I would have been very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Plane was delayed Missed connection in Denver Then while on plane about to take off, pilot realized plane lacked fuel to make our destination My 4 1/2 hour flight took 9.... Terrible experience"
Cons: "The fact that the person next to was in my seat as well"
Pros: "Fantastic service"
Pros: "I liked when I got home 12 plus hours later than I was supposed to!"
Cons: "The three canceled flights and 7 delays that I was out through were awful!"
Cons: "I ended up changing my flight in Newark airport to Fort Lauderdale that landed earlier that the one they gave me up in Scraton.."
Pros: "quick easy boarding"
Cons: "Old plane. Magazines were old and missing several pages."
Pros: "My flight was rescheduled so I hope I did not get charged for another flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time, workers were courteous, gates were easy to find."
Cons: "Pilots capabiliy. Excellent smooth landing. Friendly crew."
Cons: "4 hour 20 minute delay to change part. Since last flight of nigh plenty or the planes could have been substituted while part was switched overnight on this one."
