Pros: "Comfortable seating. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Commuter jet—no comfort. No jetway, we were on airplane stairs."
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Cons: "Check in at Heathrow was a pain. One agent asking questions about where people work and who there manager was. The other not. Having to tag baggage yourself is frustrating, especially when nobody is around to ask questions and ensure it’s done right."

Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Pros: "Efficient and on time! Courteous and professional travel assistants. Nice job. Nice new planes too!"
Cons: "Traveling as family of 5 - booked tickets two months ahead and we did not sit together despite me selecting seats when I booked. They were cheap seats so I can’t complain too much but felt that could have been accomplished given the advance booking."
Cons: "Every leg of my journey was frought with issues. From weather delays to maintenance issues. The biggest issue I have is that invariably when I fly American, if I go through Charlotte, is on the whole inconvenient. It takes way to Long to get to a gate when you land. And while everyone is apologetic, I would prefer they didn't have to be."
Cons: "Delay in boarding was over an hour"
Pros: "Everyone was nice. Flight left on time an landed early."

Pros: "Nothing in particular. They got me there."
Cons: "The usual stuff. Uncomfortable. Worse than riding a bus."
Pros: "Started when 7 am flight from Knoxville was delayed - multiple times until finally at 4 PM there were no options. Nobody with AA saying a single word all this time even when asked. Finally called their customer service line only to learn that I could get on another flight that left in a few minutes. Door was still open but gate agent argued with the lady on 800 line about who could ticket faster. By time they finished arguing the door closed. That began a 14 hour nightmare of bumping between flights and delays and the inevitable lost luggage. Paid for $300 hotel room at Vancouver that I will get to stay in for 4 hours. Will NEVER fly American again"
Cons: "Service, poor rebooking process, lack of communication."

Cons: "The seats needed to be shampood."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. In fight crew was great."
Cons: "Apparently you can make a reservation for a seat and AA is not required to honor it. They told us that you reserve a seat but you get your seat assignment when you check in to your flight. Apparently many people can make a reservation for one seat and the first person to check in gets it. My husband and I were very upset when we found this out. Especially since we went through many hoops to get a good seat assignment."
Cons: "The customer service from AA representitives in the airport was completely unnacceptable and the absolute worst service I have recieved in an airport to date! One incident during this trip was as follows: When arriving in Charlotte and running to catch my connecting flight, I arrived as the lady at the desk was closing the door, she looked at me and rolled her eyes. When I went up to the desk along with the other passengers arriving from the same flight as me the AA representative said "Hurry up , I want to go home!! At a point I'm just going to cut you off and that will be it!" She was of no help to me in anyway amd was forced tonstay the night in charlotte ; Normally this would not have been such a big deal, However I am on emergency leave from the Navy rushing home because I have a very serious family emergency, that representitive was very lucky I held my temper! From now on thanks to the poor unproffessional customer service I received I will no longer be flying American Airlines!"
Pros: "The crew was lovely, that's the only compliment I can muster."
Cons: "The plane was too small for an international flight, no in-seat entertainment, it was so small and horrible. We were like packed sardines for 6 hours. Seat in front of my was broken and in a perpetual state of big recline, the bathroom light was broken in one bathroom and door on the other. The plane looked old and disgusting. Cracks in window, grafatti on seats. Will try desperately not to fly American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "Plane was extremely hot! AC was barley flowing"
Pros: "That we at least made it to Chicago."
Cons: "That the plane coming into Raleigh from Dallas had technical problems so it made us miss our connecting flight in Chicago. I needed to be at work in Des Moines Monday morning at 8 and they bumped us to a flight from Chicago to Des Moines for 12:00 pm Monday afternoon. We had to pay $280 to rent a car and I drove all night and went straight to work without even going home to shower or get ready or anything. My 4 and a half year old son had to endure the whole thing too."

Pros: "Lost my baggage at San fransico and your connecting flights give you 30 min at most to get across an entire airport honestly I was so mad at the end when I finally got my bag I was missing a wheel of all things just poor organization for a business that takes in as much revenue as United does"
Cons: "The flight attendant was unusually pushy about the emergency exit. I am a military member who is fit and flys in the emergency row as much as possible. The attendant threatens to move me because I didn’t know what section of the aircraft the overwing exit was located."
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.

Pros: "boarding, flight attendant very nice"
Cons: "narrow seat, small aircraft"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hours because of the crew. Wouldn't it make sense that if the flight was scheduled to depart at a certain time, 5 minutes before that, still no crew, let the passengers know then? No. Not if you're United. They told us to wait 20 minutes, then after 30 minutes told us about the delay and the New departure time. But when that time arrived, still no Captain. Finally, after another 15 minutes, we're on the way. Except not quite. Now, they can't get the weight and logistics of the flight worked out. C'mon United, get it together!!"
Cons: "Purchased a non-stop flight leaving at 530 and arriving at 6:30 pm. After flight was pushed back to 830 pm departure, it was pushed back again to 1130 pm departure and 1230 am arrival. Rebooked through connecting flight and arrived at midnight."

Pros: "Flight was on time and the staff was nice."
Cons: "My chairs audio jack did not work, so I could not listen to anything for my 11 hour flight from narita to newark."
Cons: "My experience on this flight was not good. The crew was not really quite friendly in my opinion. Then my luggage did not arrive with me in the same flight. When it eventually showed up the next day it was damaged. The Agent at the counter was very unfriendly and unhelpful- he essentially said "if you read the fine print on your ticket purchase, you'll see that external damages are not covered by any airlines ". Sad!"
Pros: "Cost my son and I one whole day getting back home. Canceled flight first scheduled day, canceled flight next day, 4 hr layover etc. etc. etc. Over 20 hrs to get from Shreveport to Bakersfield CA. Darn glad I left my car at the airport as we got there at 2:30 in the morning. F. B."
Pros: "Get to Denver, they tell me I don't have a seat, they asked me if I wanted to fly out the next day because they over booked met three other people who had been there for 10hrs because they did the same thing to them! One girl told me they told her it was because we paid less then other people! A nice couple stayed so I could come home. I was pissed! My daughter flew into Houston, the flight was late getting in to LA, by two hrs, missed her connecting flight to San Luis Obispo, her sister had to drive down 4hrs to pick her up and drive back because she had work! Not happy!!!!"

Cons: "Despite wearing a down coat, scarf, and hat, and holding my bag in my lap, I was freezing cold the entire flight.

Cons: "One flight was cancelled resulting in a 6 hour wait, the second flight was 2 hours late. Meat meals ran out quick resulting in a vegetarian only option for a lot of passengers"
Cons: "Late, waited for a plane while numerous flights to Ontario and Sacramento came and went. Unacceptable."
Pros: "The plane was a newer version so we could watch movies up close and personal, although I'd prefer the option to stop or pause the movie and also to choose to watch whenever I feel like it, like on the Lufthansa planes... those are great! Many choices and full control to pause or start whenever one likes to..."

Then the connecting flight from SFO to Bakersfield left 10 minutes early, thus resulting in a small group missing the connection. Spent Father's Day in the airport for 10+ hours to get on the last flight out of SFO to Bakersfield. Customer service was unhelpful and rude until they found out that the issue was at the fault of united Airlines and not external circumstances."
Cons: "Flight updates were terrible, non existent. The people by the gate were not helpful. My daughter had to check online for updates.Customer service over the phone was poor as well. No one knew what time the plane would board,etc. Terrible overall experience. Need to improve on communication with passengers."
Cons: "Flight cancelled due to weather at ohare despite the fact that many other flights were still going. First delayed, sat around for hours, then cancelled almost 3 hours post scheduled departure time. No hotel voucher provided. Rebooked, but not done correctly so when I tried to check in, it was discovered that I didn't actually have a rebooking, requiring additional calls and second rebooking."
Pros: "Easy process with no delays"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and welcoming. I had enough space in the plane to feel comfortable."
