Cons: "Seat couldn't recline back. Was a little uncomfortable for a long flight.

Pros: "Loved everything, the meal was good, spacious seats and friendly staff."

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Pros: "Amenities, seating, plane was newer and nice"
Cons: "Stewardess didn't seem to want to work.wasn't attentive, seemed annoyed, by the time I could order breakfast in 31st class I only had 1 option left. Why wouldn't there be enough for all choices for all 1st class passengers?"

Pros: "Plane was on time, flight attendants were very pleasant. The plane was very nice and clean. Kudos to Delta"
Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "Awesome stewardist (I wish I got her name) noticed that I was in a tight spot near a larger person and moved me to another location that was more comfortable."
Cons: "size of seats for larger people, I realize not much can be done."

Cons: "That’s ok"

Cons: "The plane to Guatemala was the worst plane I've got in on"

Pros: "Very uncomfortable seating even though paid for preferred. Not enough space for carry on."
Cons: "Crew service"

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable staff was really professional"
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No complaints so far"

Pros: "Kind staff. Nice, newer aircraft"
Cons: "Copilot was changed/ not on time and delayed the flight by half an hour. Also, sat beside a man who was far too large to be in a single seat with hygiene issues he clearly was unaware of. Made the 3 hr flight very uncomfortable."

Pros: "very late"
Cons: "very late"

Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "Be organized better."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Working plane mechanical issues"

Pros: "Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad."
Cons: "3 hour flight and no entertainment options. Disappointed with that."

Pros: "Plane landed in one piece, which I very much like."
Cons: "The plane was insufferably hot during the whole flight with AC that felt like a radiator was blowing gently on my head. F-"

Pros: "It was not crowded breakfast"
Cons: "Breakfast was lousy"

Pros: "Loved the food that was served for my flight and the complementary beer."
Cons: "Well, the seats could have reclined more but this is the price you pay for air travel :)"

Pros: "Surprisingly enough leg room for me, even though im 6 foot 6in. Staff on plane were very very nice."
Cons: "In lax The women checking your ticket before you go upstairs to security was super rude. Theres one tiny bathroom in the entire AA terminal."

Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Cold no food"

Pros: "Average but what we’ve come to expect from american airline companies"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Terrible delays entirely their responsibility. No attempts to accommodate. Single worst travel experience I’ve ever had."

Pros: "Flight delayed and gate aircraft changed and different gate"

Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "My console did not work for the entire flight, including the overhead light and hellp/call button. The screen in front of my seat displayed error messages for the entire flight of 8 hours, from the time I got into my seat until after landing. I asked the crew about it before take off. Nothing they did fixed it, not could the screen be turned off completely to avoid scrolling messages for 8+hours. During the flight I was told it couldn't be fixed until after landing. In that case why wasn't it taken care of before my flight ever started? Anyone inspecting the plane properly in between the previous flight and mine would have and should have seen the same error messages on the screen I saw, and resolved it then. ''Hot'' food in the main meal was salty and lukewarm. Also irritating that flights for 3 people booked 5 months ahead of take off with no option for us to choose seats should end up with 3 separate seats at opposite ends of the plane. Should automatically assign seats together for people booking that far out, on a first come first serve basis or allow seat assignment at time of booking by the customer. This flight was about the typical experience most passengers have come to expect from companies who have too much power and really don't care about the customers they are supposed to serve. This is not a reflection of the actual crew on the flight itself, they were average, not bad, but not great."

Pros: "We did get a beverage and snack."
Cons: "Flight attendants don't even acknowledge the passenger s existence. They talk to each other and ignore the passengers."

Cons: "We taxied on the runway for 45 minutes. Grrr"

Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "AA is now trying to save money (presumably) by doing like Delta: forcing half of us to connect in Charlotte. Unfortunately, the Charlotte airport is not ready to accommodate so many people. The airport looks like it is being renovated, which is fine, but there is no tape/cones to mark off the renovated areas from the walkways. You literally walk through dirt and construction sites. I didn't even think that was legal in the US?! Anyway, maybe it will be worth it once the renovations are complete, especially if AA is going to use it as a hub."

Pros: "The check in woman was rode and could barely soak english"

Cons: "This was an MD80 that had absolutely been ridden to death. I thought that AA was modernizing their fleet? This was a 30 year old plane."

Pros: "Same as first flight."

Pros: "Food was ok and options for entertainment"
Cons: "I was sold a British Airways Flight and got AA"

Pros: "Pleasant crew and flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was a half hour late and had to run to catch our connecting flight"

Pros: "Smooth and easy flight."

Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "old planes, no entertainment on transcontinental flight. Terrible food, and options"

Pros: "Movies in flight."
Cons: "That I was rebooked and lied to at first as to why, and when getting another ticket the the ticket agent said the flight was rebook because "the crew didn't want to come to work". Not cool, I didn't react I simply got my ticket and just wemtnonw but there was no apology like they didn't care what I missed having to be rebooked I also wasn't given any sort of military discount no seats no baggage. Other airlines I've flown the past months always do something for military."

Cons: "delay, then no sandwiches available for purchase onboard during a 3-hr evening flight"

Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and apologetic for the chronic problems with the entertainment system. The pilot gave us a smooth flight and landing, and was very conscientious about turbulence prevention and safety."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was spotty. Some customers had monitors that worked, some did not. A woman with a two-year old had one of the malfunctioning monitors and was forced to entertain her child for nine hours without tv, movies or music. Similarly, on our flight over to London 10 days earlier, my husband and I were 2 of more than 30 passengers whose monitors never worked and we were forced to fly for 7 hours in the dark on an overnight flight staring at the backs of seats. It was miserable. The cabin crew told passengers they had begged the airline for years to replace the system but the airline refuses. Will not fly American Airlines transatlantic again."

Cons: "Having my 5am oneway flight cancelled 3 hrs before flight time resulting in rebooking with layover and tripple the time it would have taken to get to my destination"

Pros: "After I pledged 25 years ago I would not travel with AA, this recent trip to Miami was delayed 30 minutes going to Miami and one hour goin back to Panama."
Cons: "Ticket counter very long in Miami. Kiosk did not work. Flight delayed in both routes."

Pros: "Flight was on time, staff was friendly and boarding was organized."
Cons: "I'm a small person (5'-2", 105lbs) and I didn't have room to breathe in that tiny little seat."

Cons: "Only airline we flew that didn’t have pre boarding for families with small children."

Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"

Pros: "Ease of check in"

Pros: "Appreciated the staff acommodated me with an aisle seat."
Cons: "Had worse return flight experience. The flight was supposed to depart at 10am. While everyone was boarded, we were told the airplane missing a part. All of us had to wait for 2 and half hours for the crew to tell us that the part was in London. Thus, the flight had to be canceled. Then we waited to pick up our luggages from 12:30pm to nearly 4pm in order to get transported to a 40- minute drive away Hotel. I was starving because I didn't have breakfast as I tried to catch my flight and no food was provided during the waiting time. Plus, the entire day was wasted. Oh well, at least we were provided accommodation for the overnight, 2:40am breakfast, 4am airport shuttle, and 8am flight to get to our destination next day."

Pros: "Roomy legroom and proximity to the restroom"
Cons: "There is limited recline."

Pros: "The flight service was consistently adequate and the attendants made sure to provide many opportunities to stay well hydrated"
Cons: "There was a screaming child that made the trip almost intolerable. No fault of American, however, perhaps the attendants could have made some additional suggestions to the parent to help him quiet his child."

Pros: "I must say the in-flight crew, 2 gents and 1 lady for the first class were so friendly and ..... Happy!!!!"
Cons: "It's cold in Ohio"

Pros: "Can't make my stars better on the survey. My flights were great. Great people...kind."

Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"

Pros: "Everyone was helpful and friendly. It was my first trip, and I would do it again."

Cons: "They are too narrow but most importantly they top part goes forward to much. on other airline planes I can sleep fine but not on this one. Terrible seats."

Pros: "Hospitality, service, flight, and crew!"
Cons: "Pretzels"

Cons: "Not flying."

Pros: "No snacks or entertainment short flight"

Pros: "Staff was very nice; ice cream snack was most welcome."
Cons: "The sound and/or picture on many tv screens was broken."

Pros: "Nothing very bad experience, the staff very nasty !!"
Cons: "My flight had a big the delay, and they didn't really help us with flight connection they we us hartzell time . Also one is my suitcase did come on time . The seat were very bad for economic class . I WON'T EVER FLIGHT FROM UNITED AIRLINES!!! I ALWAYS TRAVEL THIS MY FRIST TIME USING THIS AIRLINE I WON'T DO IT AGAIN!!!"

Pros: "The crew was awesome. Boarding went very well."
Cons: "Seats are too dang small. I didn’t pay to sit with my elbows in front of me instead to my sides. The human body is NOT designed to sit like that."

Pros: "It was a stressful experience, arriving late for ur connection flight and find out u cant get to ur destination. I would say that they did compliment us with a very nice hotel so i apologize for the bad review i understand u cant do anything about the weather but was amazed with the hotel"

Cons: "arm rest to control inflight entertainment did not work"

Pros: "United staff were ready in Panamá to handle the missed connections, with onward booking already handled and hotel vouchers ready for distribution upon deplaning."
Cons: "Late boarding and long wait on runway to be able to take off, thus ensuring connection in Panamá would be missed. Given that one runway was closed due to wind, this is something outside the control of United. Nevertheless, allowing a connecting flight with only 30 minutes between flights would seem to be overly risky, thus any delay upon departure will ensure a missed connection."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Amazes me how the airlines can shrink legroom. I'm 6'5" & had an economy middle row middle seat. Needsless to say, I was stuck actually & figuratively since it was a full flight."

Cons: "No food.long flight if you come from a connecring flight. They serve pretzels which exclude people who don't est wheat. Serve an option of mixed nuts.breakfast was the ssme a cookie serve a rice cake ootion. I ordered celiac snd got the cookie on the Panama City to Asuncion flight"

Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."

Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."

Pros: "Fast and easy"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy, repeated same commercials"

Cons: "Plane was late and missed connection."

Cons: "Customer service"

Cons: "..."

Cons: "Terrible experience. Will avoid united at all costs. We arrived with enough time and called ahead. They said to run and the plane would still be there however at the kiosk, the personell was very unhelpful. They made us miss our flight, fly out the next day and didn't now help change our return flight to the next day. I called united, the booking agency and the other airline without getting any changes."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before. Two people near me were blasting their smartphones listening to music and/or playing games with their smartphones but without earphones and not one person from the crew told them to shut it up."

Pros: "United App on phone had update information"
Cons: "Unorganized/Nonexistent Information/no assistant for handicap person"

Pros: "The crew was super attentive and cordial."
Cons: "United Airlines has really deteriorated. Paid entertainment for an international flight is really nickle-and-diming it, especially since it was direct tv which is only available over the continental US!"

Pros: "Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight"
Cons: "Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English."

Cons: "I left New Jersey during snow storm. Flights had been cancelled on the previous days but our flight was not. It did not leave on time, had to switch planes before we actually took off. My luggage was lost. I did not make my connecting flight. Had sty over in Panama. Got to my destination a day late without my carry on ( checked at the gate...lost). Still have not located my other 2 bags. Very stressful expirence. Will not fly united again. Staff at my lay over was poorly trained at handling the situation and my luggage issue is taking a very long time to correct."

Pros: "The flight was delayed 4 hours and missed all my connecting flights. I’m still not in Taiwan I’m spending the night in San Francisco"

Cons: "Flight was canceled"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst airline I’ve taken in a while .. you can tel they want is $$. From charging to change seats. To have VERY LITTLE leg room (and I’m 5’2”). Charging for entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable. Crew seemed embarrassed. The crew was fine and did their job."

Cons: "bad web site lost luggage stolen items from luggage no option to wrap my luggage in plastic unfriendly staff late flight and take off"

Cons: "A 5+hr flight and a bag of pretzels for a snack? Cheap! Unfriendly staff at Panama airport"

Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."

Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "Food not Not any enterteinmet unless you pay"

Pros: "The timing"
Cons: "No food, no great entertainment,very tight space"

Pros: "The crew was Amazing!"
