Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Everything AA did nothing right."
Pros: "Big jet not typical going into Knoxville."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding had every zone called essentially at once so we could all stand."
Pros: "Yes"
Pros: "With the exception of comments below, everything was great."
Cons: "Although I understand bad weather is out of the airlines' hands, cancellation of flights seemed to be called a little early (ie to places that we just starting to rain before snow). It took me four days to get home (mnl-rap) because of cancelled flights"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Cons: "More turbulent than usual"
Pros: "The meals on Japan Airlines (JAL) were delicious!"
Cons: "Fukuoka and Narita airports had terminals that weren’t connected by a train or even an indoor path. It was covered but it was cold in Narita and Fukuoka required a slow shuttle."
Pros: "Comfortable good service and friendly attendants and good price"
Pros: "Movies are comparatively new"
Cons: "My flights between Chicago and Japan delayed both ways. My wife's flight from Chicago to Japan which is one day before mine got cancelled. Her name wasn't in the system for her rebooked flight with Cathy Pacific. HORRIBLE!!!"
Pros: "comfortable seating, lots of movie choices. food and drink selections were nice.Galley snack choices were underwhelming"
Cons: "Staff was fair, but nothing compared to the service on JAL from CA to Tokyo. Very loud throughout the flight pushing the drink cart through the 8 Business Class rows instead of just delivering drinks to the 32 people in the section. Once the initial food & beverage service was complete, the service practically disappeared unless i sought them out in the galley."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by approximately 90 minutes. Attendant was friendly."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Waited 3hrs to leave the runway"
Pros: "787 Airplane is nice, very modern. Early Departure Early Arrival. Very smooth Flight. In Flight Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "There was hardly any food and no offering of coffee or variety of beverages on this International 10+ hour flight. Seats were small and not very comfortable. On arrival nobody seemed to know which terminal exit family should meet us at, and LAX "information" said they know nothing about what AA does. Unfortunately LAX is just a terrible airport for arrival or departures. But AA needs to show more clearly where family should wait to pick up arriving internal passengers."
Pros: "AA hired a stewardess from Taiwan who spoke to us in our language. She and her team all made sure our journey was comfortable."
Cons: "Meal, comfort, crew"
Pros: "Business class is wonderful"
Cons: "Bathroom floor was full of pee."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and did a good job of keeping the passengers informed of delays"
Cons: "The gate check-in person was not very pleasant. Once we had to get off the plane after leaving the gate the flight information disappeared and could not be found on any flight tracking service. I know the airline cannot help the weather but keeping passengers informed is key to making people feel comfortable."
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time and arrived early at LAX."
Cons: "They ran out of breakfast. Seat configuration was 3-3-3 in economy and not 2-4-2 like on the JAL flight on the way to Japan. The level of professionalism is much higher on JAL in regards to the flight attendants than AA. The boarding process still needs a lot of work to be more organized (take a look at JAL as an example - they treat customers like kings and queens). Also, there was no way to get a seat assignment through the JAL website. That website looks and acts like it’s from the late 90s."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, amenities such as USB charger and outlets were convenient. Flight departed about 10 minutes early and arrived early as well! Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "-Good entertainment options -During takeoff, plane was on runway for nearly an hour with no word from the captain about delays, etc."
Cons: "-Seats too cramped -I was not informed that the breakfast option of egg omelet contained pork. I cannot eat pork for religious reasons and was unhappy to see this -Food was disgusting - hire a new chef or change your menu options"
Pros: "Crew members provide better service than I expected. It seems that American Airline has increasingly improved its service which is a good sign. Food was good. A wide variety of movies and otger entertainment on board is offered on each passenger's personal screen."
Cons: "Space for seats in such a long flight should have been bigger. Compared to other Asian airlines, AA seems to be thrifty on seat space."
Pros: "On time. Good crew."
Cons: "Flight was over sold and announcements about it at the gate had a threatening tone."
Pros: "The onboard crew was very friendly and attentive. American’s service has been vastly improved on international flights over the past couple years. It’s always nice to have a good selection of on board entertainment to keep you busy for 10 hours."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized and I was told I wouldn’t be able to carry on my luggage even though I had flown 2 other American flights that week and had no problem. I measured my bag before starting my trip and it fit in the bin. After demanding an explanation from the gate agent. She let me board with it. The seats on every airline get smaller and smaller. have less leg room and are hard. I’m a 5’10 woman and was incredibly uncomfortable after a few hours."
Pros: "flight time was very good, arrived early"
Cons: "Food options were even more deplorable than the last flight. Ate very little. Might go with ANA next time."
Cons: "Movies selection"
Pros: "Really friendly crew"
Pros: "The fact that the plane landed."
Cons: "American Airlines is running neck and neck with United, competing for the world’s worst airline. They have crammed so many seats onto their planes that I’m surprised it isn’t a health hazard. I was in an aisle seat and every time I started to fall asleep, someone going down the aisle slammed into me, making any sort of rest impossible. And the flight attendants had the typical U.S. flight attendant perma-rage, of course. I feel sorry for them, underpaid and overworked, but always p***ed off. Anerican Airlines needs to look at Emirates and other non-U.S. carriers to learn how to treat their passengers."
Pros: "The flight crew were all very nice and attentive. The on-board entertainment kept me busy during my waking hours. I appreciated the complimentary blanket, pillow and earbuds."
Cons: "The quality of the food selections were ok but could have been better. The remote for the tv screen did not function well with the games. Also, the seats were very hard, sleep did not come easily."
Pros: "Current movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are cramped. They served the final meal very close to the actual landing. The legroom is not comfortable enough for an average size adult. i asked the attendant at the gate for a seat change but never heard back."
Pros: "New plane with shades on windows. Comfortable flight."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The service and the food"
Cons: "Seats are on top of each other, very close space, too many people in that flight or should I say, too many seats for that short of space"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating horrible"
Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "The crews were very kind to young people."
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Pros: "Very comfortable and enough drink service."
Cons: "AA charges extra for a lot of the economy seats which they claim are "premium" but do not warrant the excessive price tag."
Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."
Pros: "Crew pleasant. Food nice."
Pros: "Comfy and friendly. What's not to like up front?"
Pros: "Sears had more room than as medal, service and hospitality much improved over as. Dinner and breakfast were scrumptious and drink choices were abundant."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Na"
Pros: "New airplain."
Cons: "As usual bad luggage handling in USA. At passport control, noticed that my luggage handle was removed half way but I had to re-check in the luggage and airline people did nothing about the handle with tag. And the luggage was lost. Can someone study how other country luggage handler care about customers ' luggage? Save your operation cost!"
Pros: "Rveything ok i noticed American keeps lights low for people rest unlike other airlines"
Cons: "Everything fine considering hours in plane also note passing out fooda all once jal toyko manila didnt like"
Pros: "Good crew on both trips"
Cons: "No crying children"
Pros: "Nice attentive crew"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Nothing except the movie selections and wine."
Cons: "Better seating... seats are small and crampy. The flight attendants were not friendly and attentive. I pressed the call button 3 times within an hour to receive headphones and they never came. My neighbor let me borrow hers. The food was terrible. Not many vegan options."
Pros: "Food was acceptable."
Cons: "Seats were small and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and landed on time."
Cons: "The temperature was too cold to get comfortable. I had on a jacket and a blanket, drank hot tea and still managed to get a cold after leaving the plane. Also the food wasn’t good."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and professional."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "We arrived earlier than expected."
Cons: "I noticed two flight attendants hand hot beverages without looking at you when they pass it to you. Its a bit dangerous, especially if it accidentally spills on you. The Japanese translating flight attendant for flight UA78 on 3/27/19 was gruff and rude in her tone of voice. She needs some help!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "One flight attendant a little short with customers or maybe just dry humor, hard to tell. My daughter did not want to talk to him entire trip because of earlier altercation. It would be great if United could put in foot rests in economy and economy."
Cons: "I flew the first leg of my trip with ANA and the next leg with United and I certainly noticed a difference in terms of customer service. They are less friendly and seemed to have spent more time with a couple of passengers who appeared they know personally than the rest of the passengers."
Cons: "T"
Pros: "Enough food was provided."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Check-in at Narita was great!!! The entire process from obtaining boarding pass to dropping off luggage took less than 3 minutes."
Cons: "I could not check in online. Although I only have carry on I still have to go to the United Airlines counter to get my check in card. The food was awful. The crew was extremely rude ( I would present a proper complain through United Airlines website). The small tv were completely old. I bought a ticket for ANA but operated by United Airlines. but I was not expecting this awful experience."
Pros: "The plane was run by ANA. It was super clean, the food was good and the attendants were great"
Cons: "It was the best economy flight I have ever had. Super."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was supposedly upgraded but my seat was shittier than the flight to Tokyo after it got delayed 7 hrs and no upgraded seat."
Cons: "When purchase we were told that this flight was operated by ANA airline and we got an ANA flight number, but turns out that it was United Airline and the service was much worse than ANA airline."
Cons: "Had to wait on wheel chair upon arrival"
Cons: "Flight delayed in Chicago with no one at gate ro provide any information on when flight would actually leave. Plane was scheduled to leave at 8:40pm and finally left at 12:43 am. Will never fly United through Chicago again."
Pros: "The 787 dreamliner was such a fantastic aircraft, one of the best aircraft I've flown across the Pacific. Despite being delayed, the flight crew was so accommodating and helpful with getting us to our destination quickly and safely. I hope to fly this route again soon"
Pros: "Staff are so nice"
Pros: "At least I could watch movies."
Cons: "After a long journey in Japan, flying United back to the U.S. was a rude awakening. Their crew has no regard for the manners or respect in Japanese society. I was sitting in an exit row aisle behind a restroom in economy. The staff kept bumping into me and my entertainment system as they tried to rush up and down the aisles. Really taking a breath and walking more slowly could have resolved this. At one point, the staff almost caught my arm between my seat and their rolly cart. The plane was old and in disrepair. My neighbor's entertainment system screen needed to be propped up with duct tape. The seats are stiff and uncomfortable, and the headrests are designed so that if you have a U head support, it will collide with the headrest and curve your back into a C. Some staff could use a refresher on basic Japanese. One flight attendant kept asking everyone "US Citizen or 日本語?" which means Japanese Language. Those are not mutually exclusive questions for many bilingual flyers. I usually tolerate airplane food, but this was the first meal I could not eat on a plane. It was eggs and hash browns, and it was so mushy and salty, I decided to pass. The bathrooms dirty quickly, and are a disappointment compared to the amenities provided on your basic Asian carrier. No toothbrush. No hand lotion. Just soap. We left Narita after 5 pm, and were served this weird dinner breakfast meal. Six hours later (of a 12 hour flight) it was about 11 pm in Tokyo, and 7 am in the destination city of Houston. Might as well get back to American schedules? I don't know, but when I was naturally getting tired and putting on my sleepmask and earplugs to get some rest, a rude flight attendant kept asking me if I wanted breakfast or orange juice, shoving items in front of me (with one hand, a no-no in Japanese culture), and repeatedly asking me despite me shaking my head no. I really don't know where they hired these people. My bag got held up by customs in Houston, and United transfered it to a third party courier service who tried to call me at 1 am to deliver it. That was a bit later than I expected, and I missed the call. The next day, I tried to call the driver, who hung up on me! I called their customer support, who was unable to contact the driver or the delivery service. Just who did they hand my bags to? Thankfully, after an 18 hour wait, I got my bags back, but it was a stressful wait. Throw a dart at a list of Asian airlines, they're all better than United."
Pros: "Pleasant flight w pleasant attendant."
Cons: "Tight tight seating! Yuck."
Pros: "Newark Airport is great and the flight was comfortable"
Pros: "Crew very efficient and nice"
Cons: "Being it’s a flight from Japan a more Japanese meal would’ve been better"
Pros: "The flight got us back home alive."
Cons: "mechanical delays in Tokyo with only fair communication especially after we were in the plane."
Cons: "I tryed to call and send messages to chande the date of flight, but I didn't get any answers from agent. ANA Japan said they cannot handle the changing flight. So I haven't got a return ticket rescheduled. Please advice me how to get new ticket back to Hawaii date of 9/12 or 13 ASAP."
Pros: "Everything went really smoothly!"
Pros: "The staff are really nice, they try to help to their best abilities."
Cons: "The only thing was that there were many loud children, there's no helping that."
Cons: "UA check-in staff in NRT was very rude. We had reserved seats when we booked the tickets over Kayak by paying about $15. UA staff said they didn't know that, its not in their system. They implied we were cheating because UA always charges about $200+ for reserving seat. They even didn't want to listen and look at the receipt we had. What he said in terrible English was "That is not my business""I'm busy" So my daughter and I had to seat separately in order to seat next to aisle. UA will be my last choice to fly."
Cons: "The space in the seat, too narrow, difficult to to strenghten feet. Also the bathroom already smelly, I understand that but needs to have freshener."
Pros: "The overall rating of the trip was positive, however, the staff at times was very disrespectful and unhelpful."
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful."
Cons: "Food and crew"
Pros: "The crew were pretty quick and responsive and the seats were pretty good."
Cons: "The dinner was alright but the breakfast was awful. The breakfast was the worst I ever had on a flight and the only thing I found edible were the little cookies that came with it. I had the omelette meal and it made me sick taking even one bite of it and the smell was pretty bad too."
Pros: "The entertainment was okay although the controls were having some issues since they weren't working properly"
Cons: "The unfriendliness of some of the crew. We were given ice cream and it came with a wood spoon however I am allergic to wood utensils and asked one of the crew members if they could provide me with a plastic spoon or a plastic fork and he just ignored me and I had to go all the way in the back to ask to another crew member for a plastic utensil."
Pros: "Direct TV was on the seat monitor and it was distracting and annoying."
Pros: "Cabin arrangement and chair configuration."
Cons: "Although acceptable, service on United is nowhere near the quality of service on ANA."
Cons: "It was an old plane being retired. The leg room was very small. It had no individual screens and not all the large cabin screens worked,"
Pros: "The crew to be more friendly. Crew were quite rude."
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "I am surprised by the strong attitude and the rude way of treating the passengers by the personnel of the airline"
Pros: "Movies were great. Crew was helpful but seemed flustered."
Cons: "Food was terrible for a ten hour flight; I think we all had upset stomachs from it. Passenger next to me was huge and definitely had mansplain going, not cool."
Cons: "Was not able to pick my food choice as I was sitting in the back rows even though I paid the same amount for the ticket as the person who sat 20 rows I. Front of me and could pick their prefer food"
Pros: "Everything except food"
Cons: "Food in seating"
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time and earlier. The pilot was awesome and landed the plane as gently as I've felt it could be. The plane was super awesome! I loved the ample space on the overhead bins and also love the newer entertainment systems. Speaking of entertainment, thank goodness it had new movies and included Disney."
Cons: "Too many public announcements. Kept interrupting entertainment. Then again, I sat in 32B and my screen was frozen for like half the flight. I told the flight attendant, can't remember her name, she was black, but she said she'd restart it but it never worked. I told her more than once, and it still wasn't fixed. She never even came back to check whether it was working or not. She just ignored it. But all the rest of the crew were wonderful. Also wished the boarding were in order. Each group should board in order, that way we can place our carry-ons above our own seats."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight delayed, food was horrible i have seafood allergy and theres no other choice. It took a while to dock. Everything was horrible."
Cons: "aborted takeoff due to mechanical problem, a bit scary but crew opted for safety and we changed to another plane;thus, long delay but unavoidable."
Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."
Cons: "Ok"
Pros: "Pilot was friendly and polite"
Cons: "Food (chicken) was utterly disgusting. I found the seats rather uncomfortable -- my back was really hurting at the end of the flight and that isn't normal."
Pros: "It was comfortable for a 13 hour flight. Entertainment was good. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Food was gross except for the ham sandwich and the drinks were warm."
