Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The length time of the flight"
Cons: "Customer service, the man on the counter was very rude especially with an older person like me, he was arrogant and couldn’t answer my questions, I had to put my daughter on the phone so she can talk to him and he wanted to be rude with her but she didn’t let him."
Cons: "Very old cramped plane. I actually overheard the airplane say that it was tired and wanted to be replaced with one made in this millenium..."
Pros: "The friendly service from everyone including desk, wheelchair service, and flight crew"
Cons: "Not much at all. Everyone took very good care of me."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Everything was satisfactory"
Pros: "Crew was thoughtful."
Cons: "Flight departure delayed due to something about waiting for a travel log."
Cons: "delayed an hour even though the flight took less than an hour"
Cons: "Crew only came by once for drinks, other flights they have come by two or three times. At the end of flight they said they were coming down to collect trash but never did."
Pros: "Seat was okay. Crew was definitely amazing."
Cons: "I wish the seats were even just an inch wider and more legroom for really tall people like myself."
Cons: "Everything was perfect and on schedule! Thanks for the wonderful experience"
Cons: "The personal device entertainment wasn't working, which made for a long, dull flight."
Cons: "Having a crew ready"
Pros: "Flights are on time, and the information on the app was accurate and timely"
Cons: "Not much... it was the easiest flight I’ve taken in some time!"
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "To hot in the back of the plane"
Cons: "maintenance. We left late due to a maintenance issue. Once the flight attendant notification alarm went off for 15 minutes."
Pros: "The boarding experience was quite smooth. The flight itsekf was very good. I must commend the piolots for doing a wonderful job."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for extra leg room and had to board with Group 7. I think that was ridiculous. I was unable to connect to gogo in-flight internet network. It was the second flight in which it was not available."
Pros: "Nothing, this was a miserable flight."
Cons: "Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it."
Pros: "British Airways seats"
Cons: "If we did not arrive at the airport 3hours ahead, and get on an earlier flight we would have missed our connecting flight to England. Do Not book such shoes time between flights because often they are delayed."
Cons: "No internet on plane"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Special note for Payton very attentive to my needs. Great personality. I will fly AA if all attendants are half as good and responsive as she was. She definitely deserves a raise."
Pros: "Easy flight"
Pros: "Good piloting...courteous on board service"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not operational. No food..only simple snack. Even willing to pay only a simple snack box is available...few choices due to length of flight being under 3 hours."
Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"
Pros: "On time, food service, good communication"
Cons: "Employee got us in the wrong terminal"
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival; room to stow carry-on's; able to move to vacant row to give both the other guy in my row and me some extra leg room."
Cons: "If the exit row seats are completely vacant, ask the flight attendant EARLY in the boarding process if you can move into them. I asked a good 10 min. prior to departure from the gate and was told I couldn't do it then. The FA let me move after takeoff and the obligatory "You're in exit row seating ..." briefing."
Pros: "We liked the extra legroom and the night time flight"
Cons: "Late late late"
Pros: "The plane was very nice and very comfy. Not a whole lot of leg room where I sat (economy) but it was a cheap ticket so I can't complain."
Cons: "Overbooked flight made storing carryons annoying and hard."
Pros: "very friendly staff"
Cons: "Dinner was cold, seats cramped, toilets ran out of paper, flight attendants were not nice"
Pros: "The extra leg room, giving everyone a free movie screen. Over all experience was better than any other airline I have experienced."
Pros: "Not a full flight able to stretch out and crew friendly"
Cons: "The plane was dirty, crumbs and stains on seats. Unfortunately no individual entertainment screens with limited offerings overhead makes for a long transatlantic flight but would fly again for the price."
Cons: "Apparently Finnair leases a Hilly plane and crew for this flight right now, so it wasn't quite the same."
Pros: "I flew first class. Philadelphia airport is horrendous. I chose to fly first class to avoid lines and make flying by my lonesome go more smoothly. There are no special lines for first class there are absolutely no perks to flying first class out of Philly. The first class flight attendant was rude. They ran out of hot food by the time they got to me so I was served yogurt ... I don't eat yogurt. I waited 40 minutes for my luggage to arrive at baggage claim. The flight to Philadelphia from Tampa was a good experience. They had first class lines. The airport was cleaner. The flight attendant Steve, was kind and professional. I was served a hot lunch. I'm a diabetic and when my blood sugar went low he got me orange juice quickly. I waited maybe 10 minutes for luggage at baggage claim. However with the horrific experience in Philadlephia I may never fly American again. Definitely will never fly out of Philadelphia again. I was told by the woman who I sat next to on the way home that she hates American and usually flys Delta for her business trips."
Cons: "AVOID FLYING OUT OF PHILADELPHIA!!!"
Cons: "Iwould like my money back notting i bever made it home"
Cons: "Had to be rebooked due to safety issue on my departing flight and lost my connection in Washington DC. Hours of sitting."
Cons: "I was going to miss my flight and so I called the AA and they would not credit, reschedule or do anything for me. I had to just waste the money as the change fee would be just as much as buying a new ticket. Teaches me a lesson for every straying away from Southwest."
Pros: "I was there 35 minutes early at the kiosk, checked in then it said unfortunately you missed your flight."
Pros: "Great food and headphones"
Pros: "That it finally took off and landed."
Cons: "Everything else! American is getting worst by the day."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "Flight delayed 15 min"
Cons: "Aircarft could of had mor a/c"
Cons: "Flight didn't exist"
Pros: "generally on time"
Cons: "The AA employee at the counter in Batoj Rouge informed me that I would miss my connection at Charlotte Airport due to a delayed in the incoming flight. Hebgave me the option to flight the next day or flight the same day, and after a 2 hour delay flight to Charlotte where I would be provided a hotel room and a meal for the night. I asked several times if that information was confirmed and he repeatedly said yes. At my arrival at Charlotte Airport (near midnight) every AA employee said that they did NOT have any more hotels. It was obvious that everything was a staged lie since over 100 people had to spend the night in one of the the terminals where we were provided a pillow and a blanket. I am terribly disappointed for the lack of transparency in AA. I was told my some friends that they also have had experiences like that at the same Charlotte Airport. You have damage once again your reputation and from no own in will expect THE WORST from AA."
Cons: "They lied to us in the pieces of luggage free of charge in international flights (asked at the phone), and charged us $25.00 per each piece of luggage."
Cons: "Had to reschedule to a later flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice and came by often."
Cons: "There was a dog on the 10 hour flight, I thought United Airlines had an 8 hour limit. The dog barked throughout the flight, so obviously it was a pet not a service animal. UA needs to enforce its own policy."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 45 minutes with no updates"
Cons: "Additional price for baggage , plus 8$ for a crapy meal in airplane"
Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Cons: "Not having had to be on a connecting flight in a totally different terminal 20 minutes after I land in Newark."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "The crew in Newark forced me to gate check my bag even though there were several empty overhead bins. I had 5 people in my party and we had only 2 bags. Absolutely STUPID."
Cons: "Seats were hard and stiff with no padding on the backrest. There was minimal room and even less overhead storage. The seats were in between the windows so you couldn’t really see outside of someone else shut the window on you. Thein"
Pros: "Comfy seats. Flights on time. Free pretzels."
Pros: "Stroopwaffles, TVs"
Cons: "They made me check my bag which was ridiculous. It’s been on numerous flights and was smaller than any other bag in the overhead bins"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly on board. The gate crew were a little curt, but it was a full flight and they were really trying to get everyone on board quickly so I can't be too upset about that."
Cons: "Few entertainment options - direct TV unavailable for about half the flight, WiFi also unavailable for the same."
Pros: "Again, on time and great crew."

Pros: "everything was on time and no one got kicked off of the flight!"
Pros: "I finally got there a day later"
Cons: "No gate number listed on boarding passes in SYR plane arrived and departed early with no communication to myself. Missed the flight"
Pros: "The transportation..."
Cons: "There's absolutely no leg room it's the smallest amount of room I have ever experienced on a plane - even the first class is eh - mediocre at best. I am slim and fit and I had very little to no room. Consider someone overweight and they would have to buy 2 seats... united is definitely not my favorite airline..."
Pros: "At least UA rebooked me next day no charge."
Cons: "Had to cancel trip until next day due to initial flight so delayed I would have missed connection in Denver. Since UA claimed was weather related, I woulda been responsible for hotel."
Pros: "Curtial personnel"
Cons: "Late departures both ways."
Pros: "The gate agent in Syracuse was a huge help. I have a service dog and he was very helpful and considerate."

Pros: "Flight from New Orleans to Washington went fine"
Cons: "Can't get United app on kindle tablet"
Pros: "We landed safely"
Cons: "20-30 minutes on the tarmac to take off. 30 minute wait after we arrived at the gate to have United staff attempt to line up the jetway with the cabin door. United is really firing on all cylinders lately"
Cons: "That they gave my seat from Chicago - Denver to someone else. Was sitting in the waiting area. Waiting to be called in, couldn't understand the person talking. They also did it to another person. Will never fly United again after this trip!!"

Pros: "Airline paid him"
Cons: "Everything went wrong on this flight! My son is a freshman student at Syracuse, was forced to spend two days (!) waiting for next flight."

Cons: "Having to walk a LONG distance from one terminal to the next and almost missing my flight due to delays. Then we had a delay from the bridge from plane to the airport was not working!!!"
Pros: "I missed my flight due to an unexpected car accident. The first two Kayak agents I delt with tried their best to help me by calling United and getting the fees waived for me, but they had no luck.The third agent was successful. All three agents were wonderful, compassionate and wanted to help. The third agent was successful and I appreciate all that was done for me."
Pros: "Aircraft remained grounded for 1h due to a door switch with malfunction."
Cons: "On both legs of my flight, I watched an hour of a movie on my iPad using United's app, and then the network failed. And I couldn't get the first movie on the second leg, so I couldn't finish either. Very frustrating."
Cons: "Personal device entertainment wasn't working because of a WiFi issue"
Pros: "United entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were fantastic!"

Cons: "Oh geez flight cancelled, what didn't I like?"
Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour, so they didn't charge for TV."
Cons: "Flight "attendant" bumped into my shoulder every time she walked by. Splashed with liquids (ice/soda) multiple times by the flight "attendant" running the drink cart, then they skipped past me when it came my turn for a drink. Very cramped cabin."
Cons: "Small loud plane"
Pros: "Flights was ontime"
Cons: "Plane was too hot, and then way to cold. This seems to be a re-occurring problem. I am not sure why the plane can't just be set to be be 68-72 degrees. There is no need for it to be above 80 or less than 60."
Pros: "The crew that helped get everyone booked on another flight did an outstanding job. Too bad we had to sit around for 3 hours to find out that the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Not enough communication as to the flight being canceled. Too long to inform us that it was canceled. We were told that the flight was always on time with the exception of the past few days. We were told that the service was starting to slip."

Pros: "We had a delay and everyone was very helpful!!"
