Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Attentive and very polite flight attendant"
Cons: "Restroom seems to get smaller and smaller"
Cons: "Faster baggage pickup at DFW"
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."
Cons: "Late with a bs explanation. Nasty flight attendant"
Pros: "They got me home eventually"
Cons: "Timeliness was awful. Late crew delayed the flight 50 min. Then ripped cargo net resulted in cargo shift."
Pros: "The flight actually arrived ahead of schedule!"
Cons: "This leg was terrible, the plane sat on the runway for over an hour! The captain did not initially say anything for 30 minutes."
Cons: "2 hour delay, entertainment and WiFi not working, bags almost an hour to come out at SFO"
Cons: "Commuter jet boarding at DCA is going to stink until the new terminal is completed. Just is."
Cons: "Need some sort of gluten free snacks!"
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick, and improvement has been made with people waiting for their boarding group to be called from crowding the boarding line. The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Several seat changes had to be made, but it all worked out."
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Cons: "The flight was an hour late to depart."
Cons: "Delay more ran 2 hours"
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times and then again upon landing at destination."
Pros: "No major delays. Boarding and exiting was smooth. Got assigned a window seat near front Good service."

Cons: "Plane never arrived. Forced to rebook a day later"
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy."
Cons: "This was my first time on a British Airways flight and I wasn’t to pleased. I asked for a soft and the crew member took nearly an hour to bring me one. I was sitting in a crammed seat and to make it worse the tv wasn’t working. It was on but I couldn’t change any channel. It was over a 6 hour flight that seemed even longer."
Pros: "We were up and down and I’m happy there was a direct flight to St George from Phoenix. But the price was higher than going to Salt Lake ."
Cons: "Plane was very old and we had to walk a loooong way to board."
Cons: "The food options on the brochure were not available, flight attendants had bad attitude and negative vibe"

Pros: "Although the flight was short, everything worked as it should have."
Cons: "I miss snacks! Even a bag of pretzels would have been appreciated."
Pros: "CRJ 900s have more leg room than expected"
Cons: "Flighr got delayed resting in connecting flight missing, AA didnt bother to comp the 6 hours of waiting by providing a hotel. Instead AA pretended to give a discount for a Hyatt which would end up costing 100 usd anyway, the same peice for hotels in that area anyone can fond on hotwire for 4+ hotels. Bad customer service, bad expectations management."
Pros: "The newer plane is the only nice thing."
Cons: "This service is terrible. We had to run and practically knock people over to get to this flight. After being stuck in Dallas at the beginning of our trip.

Pros: "Everyone operated fast and professional"
Pros: "Seat configurations"
Cons: "Movies inflight entertainment outdated"
Cons: "Just a suggestion, if you get new planes it is very comfortable when the seats have a bending headrest. It really helps to hold the head, especially nice for red eye flights."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "Did not catch that flight. Delayed about 8 hours."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"

Pros: "Flight was one time."
Cons: "Plane was too old, flight attendants were rude"

Pros: "The flight was on time and smooth."
Cons: "Too many people with carry on luggage."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. The seats were ok but for a 12 hour flight nothing would be perfect."

Pros: "Captain came out and talked with us"
Cons: "Delay seemed very avoidable."
Pros: "Very courteous flight crew."
Cons: "Cramped quarters, as the people who were sitting on either side of me...I was in the middle seat, we're very large people and took up part of my seat and both arm rests. Not pleasant at all. Why are these individuals not required to purchase a larger seat instead of encroaching on the seat next to them? I am an average sized person, and the seat would have been just fine if the larger people had not taken up part of my space!"
Pros: "Free entertainment."
Cons: "Food and seat room. Was up close and personal with someone’s wife."
Cons: "Entertainment doesn't work with Android 8.0 devices because you decided not to support newer versions? Stop restricting it to higher versions idiots"
Cons: "Left an hour late."
Cons: "Continuously moving departure time back."
Pros: "Getting off the hot tin can!"
Cons: "Plane was delayed because the AC was not working right. It never really cooled down much during the flight. They need to get their act together"
Pros: "Boarding was great and the in flight food and beverages were great. The choice of entertainment was awesome."
Pros: "Captain was very friendly and took ownership of delay for United"
Cons: "Delays at newark due to President in area. Would rather of just been told of delay hours prior so I could have spent the extra time with my family. Apparently the delay was known about"
Cons: "My friend traveling with me was not allowed on the plane at first because united said he didn't have a ticket. I had to get off the plane and go show them our confirmation info and where we had already checked in for the flight. Still took anther 15 minutes and they where very rude until they realized their mistake...."
Pros: "Really friendly staff, communicative, helpful. Gave good directions. Plenty of leg room on flight."
Cons: "Beyond the control of United, but LAX is a nightmare of an airport. Traffic control caused delays, airport staff more of a hindrance than helpful. Border control mumbling and barking orders at people like they're cattle. Not the best way to welcome tourists, but at least United Airlines crew made up for it with their smiles."
Pros: "I wasn't dragged off the plane forcibly. That's it."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late because plane was still in hangar. Crew didn't care either. Seats are too cramped. I'm 6'4" and window seats used to be okay for me. Now, I feel like I'm squeezing into a closet. My knees hated this flight. Also, I'd picked my seat when I booked it. When I arrive at the airport and check in, my seat was magically unassigned and unavailable. Luckily there were a couple empty seats or I'd have been dragged off"
Pros: "The flight was rerouted due to the blizzard, but the staff made it very pleasant and easy to make it to my destination on time."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Unavoidable weather delays, but overall welcoming crew and nice easy flight."
Cons: "No air plane was hot, landing took two attempts second seamed difficult and a little scary"
Cons: "Major maintenance delays made the 0600 flight take off late and missed our connection so had to go to a later flight, then that flight also got maintenance delays so our 8 hour trip took closer to 15 hours..."
Pros: "Too many delays to be able to take the flight."
Pros: "Liked the staff, always friendly even with several delays. The assist staff were excellent"
Cons: "Did not like the delays and gate changes - but that wasn't the airlines' fault"
Cons: "Long delay"
Pros: "Great flight! comfortable seats even for me being a big guy. The wifi made the flight go by great! The price on the wifi seemed a little excessive but a great convince none the less. I had a sandwich during the flight (like I said I am a big guy) it was better than expected for sure. Crew did there jobs but didn't seem to be happy about it. Overall great flight."
Pros: "flight attending was good. flight was on time,i like to flight with United thanks for their service"
Cons: "The flight was a little pricey, but that was to be expected from my short notice purchase!"
Cons: "We get informed at boarding time the flight is delayed by over an hour due to "awaiting aircraft arrival". How do you not know until boarding time there isn't an available aircraft? That's just poor operations. Then our flight continues to get delayed several times. Which is the most annoying... Don't tell me the flight is delayed an hour, the 55 min later tell me it's delayed another hour - repeat, repeat, repeat. After two and a half hours, I said f-it, and just left. I could've driven to my destination faster."
Cons: "Bad snacks. Need biscotti"
Pros: "No hassle direct flight overnight."
Cons: "Ignoring the SHITTY, SHITTY, SHITTY airport experience that seems to be unavoidable, the on board entertainment that one had to pay for required a card swipe, but the reader didn't work, so I didn't get to use it."
Pros: "Very smooth flight and good seat"
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant and professional. The flight was safe. The chicken curry meal was small but delicious, and the Belgian chocolate truffle ice cream fantastic."
Cons: "Very tight cramped seating;"
Pros: "First time flying in many years. United Staff very helpful and were helpful when I had questions."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Had to wait 30 minutes to speak to United service rep to rebook to Boston. No other Manchester flights. Forced to check carry ons. There were 10 terminals for service reps and only five reps. Line was very long and reps were in no hurry to assist. Not a pleasant experience. They should pay us a cancellation fee like they charge us when we cancel. Incurred additional expense getting to Manchester, NH. Not happy with United."
Pros: "Couldn't check in on line or at the kiosks with Lufthanse. At airport, sent to SAS desk, and after a 1 hour wait in line, sent to United desk -- that was the airline Lufhanse assigned us to (months in advance, based on flight times) but never to us about the switch. United desk was about to close and we nearly missed the flight -- seat assignments made at the last minute at the gait. We'll try to to avoid air travel in the future. Just too hairy and full of uncertainties and frustrations. Only funny part was the sign at SAS checkin warning against assaulting the agents -- must happen a lot."
Pros: "The fast boarding and arriving ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Receiving a half can of soda. Not good for a grown man"
Pros: "The flight crew were really wonderful. The flight was also very smooth."
Cons: "The food was unusually bad. The Lufthansa food from NYC to Göteborg was far, far better. The movie selection on the United flight also could have been better."
Pros: "The entertainment on the app for movies is pretty cool but everything else sucks!!!"
Cons: "Never never never ontime. I can't trust your flights to get me where I need to go. 3 weeks in a row your 5:20pm out of Richmond, VA was late due to waiting on an aircraft. How can that be? You didn't fix the problem the first time? I won't be flying United unless something changes. You lost a customer for life"
Pros: "The flight was delayed but the gate staff and flight attendants did an excellent job helping us to get quickly to our connections"
Pros: "The stewardess was personable. The staff at the United Club reception desk, helped with a seating problem on my return trip."
Cons: "The climate of both planes was not great. It may have to do with the age of the plane."
