On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink.

No respect for each other. My worst experience in history flying with AA."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost 2 hours. Maintenance - While I understand that these things happen to tell the passengers that maintenance crew "can't find a screw" to fix some panelling on the plane seems rediculous. Then further delay the flight because the wrong luggage was loaded?"

Pros: "On time. comfortable aircraft."

Pros: "the arrival on the other end"
Cons: "on tarmac 1-1/2 hours conflicting info....went from delay due to traffic/weather, to extended flight time due to reroute, to asking 10 people to volunteer to get off or 10 would be chosen to have to get off, 4 people volunteered, was holding my breath to be “picked off” when the 4 people were let back on and we took off an hour late. the flight steward spoke so unreasonably fast you couldn’t understand a word she said and she had an overall bad attitude....very disappointing from United"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Poor service in first class. Made me feel like I was bothering her"
Pros: "Da food, seat"
Cons: "Da Music"

Cons: "Ended up at Logan."
Cons: "Lady sitting behind me lit a cigarette on the tarmac"
Pros: "Free movies/TV"
Cons: "A pancake sized hole was burned into my luggage destroying my clothing, toiletries and computer. United Airlines Baggage Services has directed me to purchase replacements for the items destroyed and submit receipts.

Pros: "Quick flight, no complaints."
Pros: "The last minute emergency flight was not terribly priced"
Cons: "I was notified when there was going to be a delay, but not notified when my flight was cancelled due to the airline not having a crew. Really? No crew? Gave my mother a voucher for a motel stay, but failed to notify her that there would be no shuttle that comes to the airport after 10pm. She is not great with technology and was stranded at the airport until her re-scheduled flight 12 hours later"
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant, food was average."
Cons: "The flight being cancelled. Wifi doesn't even come close to working. No personal entertainment. Communication was poor for the rescheduling of flight that led me to miss the next flight"
Pros: "On time for once"
Cons: "Cost of the flights + baggage"
Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Connection flight times were a little close which caused me to rush from different sections of New ark airport. I almost missed my flight home to Providence so if connecting flights could be scheduled with a little more wiggle room that would be great."
Pros: "Staff was nice and accommodating. Plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "DELAYS. I had 4 flights within a weekend all with United and EVERY flight was delayed. The plane also heading to Newark ahead of us was overbooked and some people were pushed onto our plane, not a big deal if all can fit on the plane...but we wouldn't have if it wasn't for the delay causing those flying to Boston to miss their flights. Frustrating and adds an element of concern when faced with delays when the weather is fine. The internet on the plane is also confusing to use...should be clearer. Mistakenly booked my flight before realizing the new carry on policy, so trying to pack everything into a tiny bag to meet requirements was frustrating... definitely don't think I will be booking United again."
Pros: "The plane were nice and service was good"
Cons: "They charge me $25 baggage fee even though I had mileage plus card which allow one free checked baggage"
Cons: "Again flights never left on time."
Pros: "The entertainment worked for like most of the time (surprisingly) and I got an extra seat next to me."
Cons: "What can you expect from united... the crew members were terrible absolutely unprofessional and unwilling to help. We were delayed for 3 hours in Taipei due to an issue with the plane that they were trying to fix. During this time many people were trying to change flights as they had connections in SFO. When they asked the hostesses for help, they either got rude unhelpful responses or got completely ignored. United really needs to train their flight attendants better."
Pros: "On time, courteous & caring flight attendant & desk staff. Unable to understand pilot or first officer's PA announcements...language & microphone issues. Airplane is severely cramped so flight was uncomfortable."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Flight was shorter than expected"
Cons: "Bathrooms were dirty and sound wasn't working for first in flight movie"
Cons: "The day we were to return to San Francisco United cancelled our flight making us scramble to get another flight. Thank goodness for Alaska. They got us a return flight and went to Seattle instead of San Fransico. United and San Francisco is a joke. Never again."
Pros: "United is definitely improving. The service was attentive and friendly. When I asked for PJ's, the flight attendant made a good effort to retrieve them for me. I slept through the entire flight, very rare unless the conditions were optimal for sleep."
Cons: "While this flight was fine, my flight to Taipei was riddled with poor service. A bad and forgetful flight attendant can make all the difference. As United adjusts their service to the new Polaris configuration on newer planes, conditions will hopefully improve."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled a few minutes before boarding announcement. All indication prior to that was flight was on schedule. Wasted 4 hours after struggling to get another flight."
Pros: "The seats were uncomfortable. The staff was cold. The food was horrible, I wasn't even able to eat some of it. The chicken was full of bones and grissle. The rest just tasted bad. Most of their planes did not have screens in the back of the seats. Instead they wanted you to watch on your personal device via their app which worked sub par. The baggage on the return flight was delayed and I almost missed my next flight even though I had a 2 hour 40 min layover. Thankfully that flight was delayed 1 hour and a half. Next time I will stick with airlines I know better. Delta, Emirates, and Qatar all offer superior service and upscale aircraft. The 2k spent was not worth what I received."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by over two hours"
Pros: "The flight was to depart at 8:15 but due to delay only leaving at 3;30. Dissapointed as it took two agents to process a replacement flight (first agent offered a connection for a 1.5h flight only)."
Cons: "More attentive staff willing to help and at the very least, be emphatic."
Cons: "All the food choices had some sort of animal product – eggs, dairy or meat"
Cons: "The crew was unprofessional and Unprepared"
Pros: "Same as before"
Pros: "I like the many options that I had to choose from for my filghts"
Cons: "That I could get my seat assignment when I place the reservation"
Pros: "did not crash"
Cons: "It appeared that flight was not ever scheduled to go to Providence, The plane was too large to land in Providence. United probably sold too many tickets. Arrived at 130 a.m. next day -- not 9 p.m. lie I was supposed to arrive. United offered a $100 e-ticket gift. I do not fly very often. Could use $100 cash or free flight to Providence -- not Boston"
Pros: "We received a free video service for the flight"
Cons: "First of all the flight was booked for a plane which was too large to land in Providence. So either way we were going to have a longer day and extra leg.....which I only paid for ONE plane change. After running to the gate because my first flight was late taking off, this flight was delayed due to engine issues. The agent had us standing in line for 1 1/2 hours while she tried to figure out what was going on. So instead of taking off at 5:40 pm, we took off at 9 pm and still had to catch a bus from Boston to Providence...HORRIBLE Flight = Long Day/Night"
Pros: "Getting home."
Cons: "Long layover"
Cons: "The gate changed twice. We were directed to a bus to take us to our flight to only be made to get back off the bus because we didn't have a crew. No one would tell us anything. Got back into the airport and then 30 minutes later got put back on the bus. The plane was disgusting, smelled like urine. The air conditioning didn't work. Terrible."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, mindful, courteous at all times. The food was warm, well-cooked, fresh with a variety to please most eaters."
Cons: "The seats were a bit worn and mildly uncomfortable, but otherwise the flight was incredibly enjoyable."
Cons: "Delayed in Sacramento due to weather which is understandable. However, my connecting flight in San Francisco left 8 minutes early causing me to miss the flight. It was the last flight out for the night.... Had to sleep at the airport for 5 hours until another flight in the morning. My flight in the morning caused me to have a middle seat, which was very uncomfortable for the next 5 hours."
Pros: "Check in 24 Hrs before by phone and upgrade to Economy Plus for me and my husband - we were returning from a ski trip ( we fly twice a year Bs Aires-Calgary during the ski season)."
Cons: "On our return, check in ground staff tell us we can NOT check in skis and boot bags, not even paying. The reason was unknkwn but that is what the system was indicating ... We purchased RT tickets, flew from BsAires to Calgary without a glitch, skis and boot bags, in addition to one checked bag and s small carryon each. For no reason we were denied the possibility to check in ski equipment and provided no reason or solutiion. This was also not a full flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants spoke Mandarin and were in general pretty friendly and helpful at one-off requests (for a cup of water, or removing trash when I could not) even when they seemed annoyed."
Cons: "The food on the international flight was terrible -- but I think that's to be expected on most American airlines. Eat heartily and happily before flying."
