Multiple delays. Could have been more honest on delay, so could have rebooked elsewhere. Multiple cancelled connecting flights. No compensation. Could not fix myself online. Had to wait on call back.

Pros: "With the exception of comments below, everything was great."

Cons: "The wifi signup process not seemless with Android."
Pros: "Worst flight of my life"
Cons: "The crew was rude, the entertainment system was broken, there was 0 leg room, and it took hitting the call button 4 times to get water after beverage service (the second time they walked up, turned it off and walked away). I vowed to never fly American again after this flight."
Pros: "Movies were great!"
Cons: "They didn’t give customs forms until exiting the plane. Caused huge problems for everyone. Sandwich was still frozen inside."
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours."
Pros: "Plane had a modern feel with exception of entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment on the back of the screen. This is 2018, who doesn’t have that??? Sit length was a little small. I’m 5’10 and barely fit."
Cons: "Gate changed 4 times...late boarding and even later departure 2 hours. Put us on a small plane and then do maintenance. not cool."

Pros: "Flight cancelled after multiple delays. Huge line with single agent to rebook everyone"
Pros: "Tulsa to Chicago was nice."
Cons: "First flight was delayed, reschedule for new flight 4 hours later, second flight delayed. Barely made connecting flight. Plane was almost empty, I’m 6’4 and asked mid flight to move to exit row because my knees was pressing into the forward seat. 1 person out of 6 seats were in the exit row and the gentleman attendant denied my request. I didn’t flinch about my full day of delays and connection issues but on an empty flight it would have been nice to catch a break. I landed in Pittsburgh at 12:30 at night and got to my hotel at 1:30am with an 8 am presentation. AA delays really have created a discontent with my business trips. As I use AA as my primary airline I hope this doesn’t continue or I’ll switch to United for future business trips monthly."
Cons: "We arrived 2 1/2 hr before boarding and arrived at the gate 6 minutes before AA was announcing it would close the gate. Desk was clearly understaffed."
Pros: "New plane. Excellent service. Absolutely a delightful experience."
Cons: "Delayed flight and missed connection flight to KC"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Out of wraps, sandwich disappointing. Legroom bad."
Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Cons: "Waiting on a hot plane for 2 hours"
Cons: "delayed on the plane"
Cons: "We waited at the gate in Frankfurt once the plane was loaded for 40 minutes for the aircraft to get pushed back from the jetway . Waited another 25 minutes in Dallas for an operator to place the jetway to the aircraft. One of the stewardess we had was really rude."
Pros: "Everything lined up perfectly"
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Pros: "Terri was very attentive."
Pros: "Almost 20 hours before regular flight time, received numerous texts from airline that flight will be delayed. Some were delays if 4,5 hours then changed to almost 8 hrs then back to 6 hours . Needless to say connection flight is messed up and no way of knowing what that might be until arriving at airport. Then more confusion, too almost an hour to get checked in. With connecting flight of 1.5 hours which is scary for international flight that requires going through custom then recheck luggage and TSA line again. The saving grace is captain speed up place on first leg of international flight so arrived airport 1 hour early, thus allowing enough time to connect."
Cons: "The flight was late due to flight attendants coming from another plane! American Airlines is a billion dollar company; they should have had flight attendants on stand-bye. Then we had to wait an hour just to get out luggage..."
Pros: "The plane was new and relatively clean."
Cons: "I fell asleep as soon as the cabin began to pressurize, which I often do. I subsequently missed the first meal, and was informed of light snacks in the galley bar - this meant mini pretzels. We experienced some light turbulence perhaps 2 hours to 1.5 hours before landing, after which we were informed that the turbulence had caused the food for the economy cabin to spill (first class was apparently fine). So that meant I had not eaten at all on a 13.5 hour flight, and all I consumed was water. To add insult to injury, I was caught in a 2 hour immigration line, despite the presence of one world employees in the hall responsible for ushering passengers with tight transfer times, but refused to give me assistance on 2 occasions. I later missed my connecting flight and was forced to pay for my own hotel, transfers and subsistence, with no apology from the airline. Outrageous flying experience."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Our flight to Nashville AND our flight back to Dallas were both delayed due to "maintenance". Each time was a delay of a couple of hours causing us to miss both of our original layover flights. As a result, we missed TWO very important business meetings that ended up costing us over $10,000! We were unable to provide paychecks to employees! After spending 2 entire days sitting in the airport waiting, we were offered a "food voucher" for $30, were advised to go pick up our luggage first, but they failed to mention we would be unable to get back through DFW airport security just to eat!! We had to take a taxi back to our hotel for over $100 and they didn't offer help with that or anything else. This airline is the worst!!! Unless there is significant compensation offered, I will do anything and everything to destroy their reputation further. I'm in the marketing industry and am very capable of getting the word out to millions. American Airlines... 9/11...Never Forget."
Pros: "wi-fi access"
Cons: "Flight was late, crew didn't speak to passengers when boarding or de-boarding, passengers had to check carry=on bags due to limited space"
Pros: "The flight attendants on both flights were very friendly"
Cons: "They changed my flight without telling me about it. My first flight was at 8 but my plane was late. When I went to the ticket counter they changed my flight and didn't tell me when I was getting to my destination"
Pros: "The entertainment, the crew were very hospitable. The flight was on time"
Cons: "This flight was good, but when I fly in July I pay extra for protection and extra for better seat. Flight was canceled and they put me on different plane, which make my day in San Diego very difficult, because I miss my meeting, I didn't get better seat ither,instead I got seat in front of toilet and for 3 hours have to listen door bunging and terrible smell. I never been compensate for canceling flight or extra seat price.Nobody care even apologize. I hope that was just unforchened incident and I still like your company and still flying with AA, but I was really disappointed. Sincerely Vera Vasiley."

Cons: "Nothing for this flight"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Cleaner lavatories"
Cons: "We arrived at the airport over an hour before the scheduled departure time, per TSA suggestions, and it was way too early. Perhaps a half hour before boarding from smaller cities would be more suitable."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Better wheelchair services. Fended for ourselves."
Pros: "The price was better than spirit"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for some time but made it to Dallas on time"
Pros: "Flight was delayed after boarding due to engine troubles and had to get down to board on to a different flight again"
Cons: "No compensation offered for the inconvenience"
Pros: "Our flight arrived early and they didn't lose our luggage."
Cons: "I checked in online. I PAID for our bags. When I get to the check in counter to check my bags, I have to use their computers to CHECK IN and PAY AGAIN! They charged me $100 for my 1 bag! Ridiculous! And we were NOT allowed a carry on; only 1 personal bag."
Pros: "Much more room, seats are more cushy"
Cons: "Short flight, so no food or entertainment."
Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew"

Cons: "Fairly lady attendants."
Pros: "Service, comfort and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Excellent customer service"
Pros: "The transparency of the pilot as to what was causing all of fhe delays."
Cons: "The 4 hour delay. First, the plane was running late from San Francisco (about 2 hours late). The second delay was due to someone putting way too much fuel in the plane so we had to wait for the excess fuel to be removed. Then the flight attendants ended their shift so we had to wait for another crew that was flying in from Denver. This involved us having to remove all of our things from the overhead bin and get off the plane and re-board about an hour and half later. I was supposed to make it to Dallas at 8:45 and instead didn't make it until after 12:30. It was extremely inconvenient and unpleasant. I have not experienced such a nightmare before with any previous airlines."
Cons: "Plane delayed due to maintenance at the hub airport of Newark and no gates upon arrival in DFW at midnight."
Pros: "American Airlines"
Cons: "Dear United Airlines, It is my dearest wish that reading the following inflicts upon you at least a fraction of the stress, frustration, and pain that I have been through traveling with you today- you absolutely abhorrent excuse for a company. Due to your incomparable incompetence my arrival was inexcusably delayed almost 12 hours. An account follows: For a company who's customer service is already hanging by a very thin thread you would think that you would be doing everything to make your flights as smooth and pleasant as possible. Shall I elaborate on the utter frustration and boredom of being trapped in the San Francisco airport facing not one, not two, but what became SEVEN delays? Delays that have been caused by runway maintenance- a condition which someone in your company would have known about well before I got to the airport and that you simply did not plan for. A almost FOUR HOUR delay that could have been easily avoided if you just had things together and scheduled your planes around the affected runways. And let's not forget the additional delay caused when your flight crew simply couldn't be found to come to the gate so we could start getting underway! But no, I think the absolutely outstanding quintessential experience that defines flying with United airlines is this: After the above delays myself and my fellow passengers were finally able to board our flight- only to be told by the captain that there would be another brief delay while we waited for ANOTHER crew member because one of the pilots was near the end of their union hours. We sit on the plane stuck for another 20 minuets or so, only to be told they can't find anyone, and can we please get off the plane because our WHOLE FLIGHT is CANCELED. The kiosk I get to try and fix this is uncrowded but understaffed and run by clearly undertrained employees. The ones I'm dealing with keep having to ask each other for help, and give advice/plans that contradict one another. One of theme even takes what seems to be a personal call while 'assisting' me. When I finally get ahold of a supervisor I have to plead to get the next flight out of this godforsaken place, which I am reluctantly given as its with one of your competitors. Talking with other customer and airport staff is sounds very much like you are delaying/canceling flights for your own personal gain or at least not correcting flights around the situation to squeeze more money from the situation) it becomes quite clear that you are not only still incapable of accepting any real measure of accountability but entirely disgracefully unorganized. Almost 12 hours later I do finally make it home- thanks to American Airlines. Only to have the utter displeasure of one last interaction with United wherein when I pick up my bag your employees insist that I was delayed due to the weather and it wasn't your fault. It was entirely absolutely your fault."
Cons: "No food no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Flight left really late"
Pros: "The flight itself was comfortable."
Pros: "First time but I like it"
Cons: "Good experience"
Cons: "I booked a one way flight to Dallas (DFW) for my father and I using Kayak to leave from washington D.C. (IAD) 05:30 PM - 08:04 PM United Airlines Flight 6296 Operated by Oriental Air Bridge I booked it for Saturday January 21st and it went to pricline.com and confirmed it. The problem is that when I looked on the confirmation email/boarding pass it said I was supposed to be leaving January 20th, so as you could tell on my account I had to purchase another 2 tickets with another airline. I don't know what happened but I am very disappointed. I would like a refund please. Abdallah mohammad ismail Abdallahismail84@gmail.com 469-396 3589"

Pros: "All around great service for everyone"
Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Rough landing!"
Pros: "We volunteered to be bumped to another flight, but instead ended up on our same flight but with upgraded seats!"
Cons: "Unfortunately the stewardess was a little rude and treated my husband and I sub par compared to the other first class passengers. Yes, we were upgraded from economy but we felt she should have given us the same service as the other passengers. When she passed snacks she quickly put the basket in front and didn't even give us a chance to say no before walking off. Didn't offer refills to us but others were given refills/offered."
Pros: "I would have rather of not been offered"
Pros: "Boarding and overhead space was good."
Cons: "Too hot."
Pros: "Direct tv in united codeshare flt"
Pros: "Less of a delay than I've come to expect with United."
Cons: "I would also like the breakdown of my flight combined. Having to justify paying more for an economy seat (Plus) I can move in is not fun on an expense report. I feel like it's more and more expensive (nickel and diming) and no space and all to frequent delays. I'm considering switching airlines."
Pros: "Everything about the flight process was excellent"
Pros: "Best movie choices"
Pros: "The first class accommodations were great, my only issue was that the entertainment required an app!"
Cons: "Required an app to get any video."
Pros: "It got me home."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours. I had a two hour drive after which got me in bed at 4:30 AM instead of 1:00 AM. Had to work that day which made it hard to function. Usually great, but was disappointed they didn't offer anything to us for such an inconvenience."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I'm home safe"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "Leg space Terrible"
Pros: "Fairly short flight"
Cons: "I didnt want to touch the little fold out table because i could see gunk and dirt in the cracks...also I didn't know I was going to be right next to the bathroom so I was graced with a lot of smells the entire trip :("
Pros: "Overall service."
Cons: "Impolite Lady Gate Agent."
Cons: "Middle Seat"
