Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Extremely late

Pros: "Non stop flight. Excellent departure time."
Cons: "Understanding the COVID situation but they can give more than a bottle of water (3oz) and a bag of pretzels 🥨 (50 grams) and yet they charge full fare prices and worse extra for any bags!!!!"
Cons: "With so many empty seats on the front. They decided to crunch everyone in the back without the minimal distance requested for social distancing. Very disappointed. Social distance is not practiced at AA as in Delta. Very sad. Will remember that next time I book a flight."
Pros: "Attendants were nice and cordial and made the flight seem like a breeze."
Cons: "Wish the plane was little bigger and not overbooked. It’s not good with people who have claustrophobia and bad anxiety."

Pros: "Crew were very helpful"

Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "The pilot got us to Dallas ahead of schedule which was a big help because I was concerned about making my connecting flight. The stewardess assured me of the process and said not to worry."
Cons: "The food combination was a bit strange and we need a non spicy option. The bibimbop was good because I could control the amount of spice."

Pros: "Nice people"
Cons: "Delays and more delays"
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."

Pros: "Courteous professional staff!"
Cons: "I couldn't imagine a smaller space for traveling - rediculously small!"

Pros: "Very hard landing."
Cons: "Your pretzels are terrible"
Cons: "served snacks without drinks or at least water"
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Pros: "Plane was not full so more space. Original seat whilst legroom was plentiful the aircraft hull made the seating experience cramped. Poor interior space design. Entertainment excellent helped me concentrate on work. Left late but made up time in the air given arrival time this was good."
Cons: "Food especially snack was absolutely dreadful. Cabin staff were polite but have done one too many transatlantic flights and the process whilst polite is a transaction. The customer is not special."
Cons: "An extremely rude woman told me there was no space to place my bag in the overhead compartment and forced me to step aside and check my backpack. I didn't have a purse or any other item, just a backpack. I told them I had medication and they told me to just put it in my pockets. So I stashed my medicine in my pockets and had no room for my personal items or valuables. I had a hiking backpack with a water bottle in the side, and since they forced me to check the bag, my water bottle flew out of the pocket while it was being loaded onto the plane. Fortunately they at least tracked me down and brought my stainless steel water bottle to my seat. However, it wouldn't fit in the pocket in front of me and I had no other bag to store it in so I had to hold it and a few other belongings in my lap for the entire flight. I also had some other fragile items in my backpack that may or may not be okay. Also, when I boarded the plane, there was still space...there was no need to be so rude and force me to check a bag being used not only as my suitcase but as my purse as well. I'm so displeased with American, their staff, and their overall disorganization. How ridiculous."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Numerous delays."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "For tall people more room for the legs"
Cons: "The Seats aré very near"

Cons: "Crew were consistently overlooking us in the middle section."
Pros: "Got me to destination, I slept the whole way."
Cons: "Delayed for about 15 minutes on arrival, something about maintenance and the entry door."
Pros: "This airline is evil."
Pros: "Everything smooth. No hang ups"
Cons: "The flight was incredibly delayed."
Cons: "Long flight for a short distance. Slow getting people on and off. Delayed on arrival getting to gate and then delays getting people off. Baggage took a long time."
Pros: "Cheap. Easy. Got me to my destination"
Cons: "The only downfall of the flight was the seating. Having to pay extra for an emergency exit row to get more leg room isn't good practice."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Inflight movies"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "A safe, quiet set of flights. Nothing really unusual, which is a good thing. US airlines suck badly in cuisine and this trip reinforcedji"
Pros: "Was able to get on another flight"
Cons: "If they could have held the flight for 15 minutes, I would have made it. My flight from Spokane was late. Now I had to pay another $250 just for a crappy room for the night."
Pros: "The food and the crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system, it is outdated"
Pros: "Amabilidad de la tripulacion"
Cons: "Podrían dar comida, el viaje no es tan corto. Aire acondicionado demasiado frío, muchos pasajeros solicitaron regular l temperatura, no habían suficientes mantas"

Cons: "A smile from the flight attendant and something other than pretzels in first class."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable and on time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The overnight flight made it easy to sleep most of the way."
Cons: "I didn't like getting woken up in the middle of the night to eat a sandwich. The bathroom was not stocked well with paper towels, so there was no way to dry my hands after washing them. I also don't know how to order gluten-free meals before the flight."
Cons: "No screens in the seats. Food options are the usual limited fair"
Cons: "I’m 6’3, misty in my legs, so the diminishing legroom is a problem. Can’t afford business class either. You should really have entertainment for a 5 hr flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with screens"
Cons: "Mediocre snack"
Cons: "I didn't get to get on the flight."
Cons: "Slow boarding, no food no drinks, no tv."

Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Más espacio, al menos una película que ver, y algún bocadillo por ser un vuelo de tantas horas"
Pros: "The flight left on time as scheduled."
Cons: "Prior to boarding United announced it would be a full flight so they offered to check our bags for free. The United employee seemed put off when we let her know my wife & I wanted to check out two carry on bags. After my wife had her bag checked the United Employee looked at me & said “let me have it” while pointing at my right side that was holding my back pack & ticket. I misunderstood because I replied “I am not checking my backpack, only my suitcase.” The United employee said “no, your ticket” which caused an awkward silence of confusion & everyone surrounding us to look at me like I had said something wrong when in fact it was then United employee that was unclear with her words. I handed her my ticket & the other United employee proceeded to tag my wife’s suitcase but not mine looking at me like I was crazy for offering mine up. Out of further embarrassment & frustration I ended up carrying my suitcase on the plane. The seats on the plane felt like I was sitting against a piece of plywood. If I could give comfort zero stars I would. Terrible customer service & terrible comfort."
Pros: "Was comfortable and attendant gave me a seat closer to exit door so I could get off the plane quicker."
Cons: "Was delayed 45 minutes and by the time we landed and taxiied I had only 10 minutes to make it to my other flight for boarding. Barely made it."
Pros: "Entertainment worked on this flight! And once again, I had an empty seat next to me - that's always a huge plus so I can stretch a bit."
Pros: "The flight crew was very attentive and friendly. Probably one of the nicest crews I have encountered on my flights."
Cons: "Me and this other person were waiting in the back for the two bathrooms to become available. We waited over 10 minutes."
Cons: "Legroom on both flights was the least I've ever had on any plane."
Pros: "The plane took two hours to leave the ground due to weather. This was unfortunate and made the passengers uncomfortable but it was not the fault of the airline."
Cons: "The airline gave all the passengers access to the movies and television channels."
Pros: "I liked the comfort of the eats, the roominess of the seats even when fully occupied (3) and the friendliness and efficiency of the staff in the cabin."
Cons: "the tiny restroom, water on the floor and size of the waste paper basket."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."
Pros: "The price was right! For a one way ticket in the summer I can't complain."
Cons: "Flight was delayed which was fine because it wasn't their fault. However, they cram waaaaay too many seats into the planes. A small turboprop has more space!"
Pros: "The app, United airlines, the whole experience."
Pros: "The time getting there on time or early"
Pros: "Left early...arrived early"
Pros: "First flight delayed once board to check a broken light. Then waisted 40 minutes taxiing on tarmac in Houston because they couldn't find a gate. Missed our connection. They put us up in a low end hotel overnight. Then we had our morning flight again delayed as we waited for planes to the take off, so further delays. Arrived in Costa Rica 1 hour late. Now with too many other flights so immigration packed and took another hour and twenty minutes (when we finished there was only a 5 minute wait). Thanks United"
Cons: "Coffee and cookies. Moscow mule"
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Cons: "Fligh delay."
Pros: "I was allowed to get off the aircraft to collect a bag I left behind"
Pros: "Attendants were amazing"
Cons: "We spent the whole delay on the plane and wasn't notified of a problem until after an hour. A lot of my time was wasted. That's not okay. Keep your customers informed."
Pros: "The boarding process is terrible, because communication breakdown is inevitable. The crew on the plane are sometimes rude, and have no patience when passing seated passengers. One air hostess constantly bumped into my arm like a bull as she passed walking down the isle. Entertainment is practically non-existent on long flights unless you pay for it. Two of my flights were cancelled last minute with little to no remorse, and I had to wait 2 days to catch the next flight. That flight was even delayed more than an hour. I was sick by time I reached my destination. Overall, United would not be my 1st choice due to bad experiences numerous times."
Pros: "Nice and comfy seats, good service on plane, fast boarding"
Cons: "No good food and the entertainment was not the beat"
Pros: "Just the crew"
Cons: "Now when I fly united i feel like flying with spirit or jet blue o any other cheap airline, they charge for everything but sodas. They don't even carry blankets. The fact that for a long (3h- 4h and 5h) flight (took 4 overall during the holidays) united didn't offered ONE movie for free at least was very disappointing. Not one of my flights were on-time!"
Pros: "You will refund for missed flights, everything was good"
Cons: "Same. No ffood ..poor Service and allso charging. To much for extra weight. $200 for 3 extra pounds. Ridiculous. Also charged for one check in bag..Todo much"
Cons: "Well considering I am still in Houston, the plane left late and I was in the last row and I it took 10+ minutes to deplane, I missed my connection to Corpus Christie!!! The schedule between planes is way to tight!! I am very unhappy and too old to be running to catch my connecting flight. I will never make reservations that the airline or kayak do not consider time needed to change terminals etched"
Pros: "The crew were nice though exasperated with cramped new planes and crowded restrooms. Flight was on time"
Cons: "After three years of flying all around US, realized United is the worst of the three major legacy carriers. I'm star alliance gold and it's still a painful experience. Crew admitted in latest redesign of planes they've managed to squeeze another six seats in coach. My seat wouldn't go back but even if it did, would feel too guilty for person behind to do it - so little legroom on newer planes. They've also cut down on restrooms so for most of the flight there was a line of 5-6 people waiting in the aisle. American Airlines seems to have older planes but at least decent legroom (and I'm not tall - anybody over 5'10 would have to sit at an angle on new United planes!). Been very impressed by Delta's service lately. United feels more like Spirit"
Pros: "Wonderful experience the entire way! I did fly first class as I've decided if I have to fly all the way across country I want to be very comfortable, and I was! Thank you United!"
Pros: "The service was food"
Cons: "Lack of leg room!!! After my bicycle box was inspected they failed to secure my bike the way I had it in the box. Bike was flipping around in box. Bent rear brake calipers. Bent brake hoods. Rear skewers were uncoupled. No way to treat a $10,000 bike! Very upset!"
Pros: "On time. Boarded smoothly. Pleasant crew. Snacks and beverage included. No cost to check bag."
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable."
Pros: "All of this trip went well, all on time, great service, no worries!"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed the flight due to "operational difficulties". I understand this happens, however, their communication towards customers was unacceptable. They first announced a 20 min delay, followed by another 30 min, then 30 more and then 30 more than then 30 more! They basically kept us at the gate for 2 1/2 hours until the found another plane. For a business like United, and flying out of their hub this is completely unacceptable. We ended up leaving at 11pm for a flight scheduled at 8. They didnt give anything in the plane to make up for it. No food, no free wifi, nothing."
Pros: "The seat next to me was empty"
Cons: "United put my bags on the next flight to San Jose, so I had to wait an extra 2.5 hours in the airport for the next plane to land in San Jose, Costa Rica while my ride waited for me."
