Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Boarding and deboarding takes too long. If you H‑E‑B a full flight in Covid, social distancing is a joke while deboarding the plane. It was a waste of time."

Cons: "Very abrupt service. Not much room."

Cons: "To hot in the back of the plane"
Pros: "We landed safely"

Cons: "Most of the family were seating apart. I can't understand why?"
Cons: "small plane"
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"
Cons: "Lost our luggage on a direct flight"
Pros: "Everyone was very professional and pleasant."
Cons: "All great today."
Cons: "Late to Tulsa again.l"
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."
Cons: "Ugh. By this time I'm worn out and fed up from hassling with Customs. Then they lose my luggage."
Pros: "flight was on time and pilot was good. will and grace on the main screens which was a good choice but why bring back the cabin screens from the 80s??"
Cons: "Scaled back to less than a budget airline at a higher cost threshold. boarding process was disorganized, no screens, additional cost for breathing (pretty much)"
Cons: "Didn't make the flight because the flight to London was cancelled."
Pros: "Í like al the fligth ."
Pros: "Old plane. No entertaining in seats for a 10 hour flight. Awful."
Pros: "I like to party. But besides that, I like flying with my instruments and not having to gate check them. Yay!"
Cons: "I didn’t like the way the employees were so friendly! It was not fair. I wanted to be angry and my opportunity was taken from me!"
Pros: "I loved the extra room in the seating, great seats too. Plus the personal TVs and movie selection was fantastic!!! However, 1/3 of the planes TVs did not work. Luckily, my row of TVs did work and we had an empty seat between my daughter and me , so when my son's TV went out he sat in my row which did work. Great plane, once everything is fixed!"
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
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."
Cons: "I had a 6 hour layover in London but the American Airlines still couldn't get my bags from terminal 5 to terminal 3 and i flew into Miami without my bags! Thank you for making my life harder!"
Pros: "New Airbus Dreamliner is a nice plane."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "The experience was average."
Cons: "While the brakes/ tires issue was not their fault, it's much more helpful to post a 2 hour delay (and surprise us with an earlier boarding) than checking with mechanics every 15 minutes with updates announced but no projected departure time!"
Pros: "The extra leg room, giving everyone a free movie screen. Over all experience was better than any other airline I have experienced."
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: "The first leg of trip had a newer aircraft......potentially due to the "mechanical delay" that started the fiasco."
Cons: "I don't usually do reviews, but this experience has prompted me too. I usually pick American over other airlines even if the price is slightly higher but after this last fiasco I doubt I will fly with them again. From the start of the trip there was a delay. I was told that I would have to stay in a hotel in Charlotte because I would miss my connecting flight. I agreed and waited for my flight that was nearly 2 hours late. I arrived in Charlotte and retrieved my bag as instructed and went to the counter. The lady then stated that it was probably best if I tried to get on the last remaining flight even though it showed sold out because "there have been delays all day and plenty of people have been missing their connecting flights". So I rechecked my bag and headed to the game. This flight was delayed, as it was the last for the night, so that all the connecting flights could be made. Okay, that is fair enough....even though I didn't get to board and now I no longer had my bag as this is now on the plane. 30 minutes after the plane left I finally get my voucher for motel along with a $12 voucher for food that can only be used in the terminal restaurants......which are now closed for the night. After 30 minutes of trying to contact the hotel for shuttle information I was advised that they were no longer taking airline vouchers. I , again, approached the ticket counter and I was advised that I "would just have to wait because there are no rooms in the system at this time." And none of this instruction seemed professional or accommodating. After another hour I was approached that now there are no other options in their system for accommodations and I would have to pursue options on my own. So......the higher priced one way ticket just became $100 more at no fault of my own."
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "We had a slight delay due to weather conditions. The aitport staff was wonderful and very professional. There were some folks who were upset but the staff effectively calmed them down. The whole experience was great. Thank you American Airlines!"
Pros: "That it finally took off and landed."
Cons: "Everything else! American is getting worst by the day."
Pros: "generally on time"
Cons: "When we got off the plane in LA from Sydney they told us our flight to Boston was cancelled, and the next avail option home was in 12 hours. We spent two hours with them and on the phone trying to work out different options to get home sooner, when they brought the flight back again, cancelled it again and then eventually brought it back. The customer service agent on the phone said the flight was on, while the agent on the ground said it was cancelled. They were all confused. Caused an unnecessary amount of stress and work. Would make me think twice about ever flying with American again"
Pros: "The crew did a great job of keeping the passengers taken care of."
Cons: "Flight delays and almost missed the checkout of our rental car"
Cons: "Arrived to the airport as suggested based on my departure time; only to find out that my flight was going to be delayed. Delays happen, i understand; however this delay impacted me catching my next connecting flight. There were no attendant at the designated gates to help me in Puerto Rico and calling directly was a nightmare. Never made it to Miami or to lax. Instead I was put on an even longer flight, San Juan to Philadelphia."
Cons: "Sat on runway for 45 minutes with no updates"
Pros: "Upgrade to economy plus"
Cons: "The female flight attendant was not good"
Cons: "Not having had to be on a connecting flight in a totally different terminal 20 minutes after I land in Newark."
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: "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."

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: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The staff had no meal for me despite me having ordered one. The entertainment system wasn't working and neither was the wifi to allow you to watch on your own device. Old planes with uncomfortable seats. Really poor airline."
Cons: "Temp inside plane was freezing cold. Pilot was asked 3 times to adjust. People were bundled up, hugging themselves and had blankets over their heads to try to stay warm. After third request to pilot, the temperature was set to so hot people were sweating and complaining. Typical United Airlines crew who think they are driving a cattle car"
Pros: "The gate agent in Syracuse was a huge help. I have a service dog and he was very helpful and considerate."
Pros: "Paying for extra leg room"
Cons: "Customer service is terrible. I dislike 'having' to travel to Midwest. Options are terrible. Delays, delays. No leg room"
Pros: "i eventually got to SF"
Cons: "The flight kept getting delayed and they wouldn't tell us why. There happened to be a line forming at the counter and when i asked an employee why people were lining up, all that i got in reply was "because the flights delayed". Thanks...i had no idea"
Pros: "I like the United app for ease of checkin"

Pros: "Although the seats were cramped the cushion was comfortable. The flight attendant was very personable."
Cons: "Very cramped quarters."
Cons: "I was in a window seat with my leg next to a vent that was pumping out extremely hot air the entire trip. I was told nothing could be done. They give $1k vouchers to passengers that move to later flights bc of oversold flights. What should I get?!"
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: "The people at the check in in Boise were unpleasant. Seemed angry and frustrated with everyone. Our flight from San Francisco to Boise was cancelled and the person on the phone was not helpful at all. The two flight attendants argued at least three times dragging passengers in on their fight. My husband and I were sitting in the back. It was very uncomfortable. Thank goodness I had my headphones. Then the flight attendant followed one of the passengers to the women's restroom at the SF airport to argue her point after overhearing she was going to email the airline!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent. Beyond making sure we were comfortable."
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."
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."
Pros: "United entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "The fact that I had to rent a car and drive ... When I bought a flight ticket."
Cons: "Oh geez flight cancelled, what didn't I like?"

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: "newer, quieter jet"
Pros: "We had a delay and everyone was very helpful!!"
Pros: "I liked the snack waffle the crew gave during flight. Taste real good."
Cons: "I was too cramped in my seat."
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Cons: "Flight was late , and many other issues"
Pros: "The plan took off and landed. Not much positive about united."
Cons: "The staff at Syracuse is horrible. They were badgering passengers. They seem hostile and rude. They are always incompetent. I fly all over. This is the worst united staff. I dread flying into Syracuse. They are never on time meeting flights. Baggage claim takes ages. Checking in is a nightmare if you need something other than checking in."
