Pros: "Plane was new and quite comfortable up front"

Pros: "Customer service desk was super helpful in rebooking me."
Cons: "Gate crew gave away my seat prior to the 10 minute departure window. I had already checked in. The door was still open when I arrived at the gate. They said they gave my seat away to standby. One minute later they shut the gate door."

Pros: "Overall flight was pretty goodstaff was exceptionally nice and pleasant. As was the pilot"
Cons: "staff was exceptionally nice and pleasant. As was the pilot"

Pros: "That it was a short flight."
Cons: "Crew was bare minimum attention, bitching about merger and schedule as I left, nobody returned my 'goodbye', felt like a city bus. My screen said 'loading content' for the whole flight and nobody was very interested in fixing it."

Pros: "Great new airplane and entertainment system. American flight attendants were courteous and helpful. Even when there was a glitch in the computer system, the agent solved problems quickly and we were on our way. Way to go, AA!"

Cons: "Flight attendant was not very friendly"

Pros: "The service in the aircraft was nice!"
Cons: "The 1th. aircraft has an defekt, we have to go out and wait for 3 hrs. The second has already the same defekt, we wait again 2 hrs without new information and no service on the gate. Then it happened, we can go to the aircraft and flight to our destination. The aircraft seems to be a part of an museum, not a part of an modern airline. The next time, I will take the oceanic 0815, that will be better!:-)"

Pros: "The crew was nice. The updated entertainment system on the back of the headrests were nice."
Cons: "The seats were pretty cramped even by today’s standards. It felt more like a frontier or Ryan air flight in that regard. Glad it was only about a 2 hour flight. I’m only 5’4”, I don’t require a lot of room, but my hips were killing me from lack of leg room. Can’t imagine what it’s like for taller people."

Pros: "Personell at Bagage drop was nice"

Pros: "Prompt boarding"
Cons: "I could never sync in the entertainment app and wifi"

Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"

Pros: "Comfort level on the plane was beyond my expectations. Seats, noise level, and elbow room excellent. I will definitely take another flight with American."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"

Pros: "Great flight. Nice airplanes and friendly hostesses."

Pros: "I got there safe and there was some entertainment"
Cons: "seats small and not real comfortable."

Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Always seems to have a delay connecting through DFW, caused me an extra day of parking fee for coming back late."

Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Complainers. Shame on the parents who raised such pretentious a--holes."

Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."

Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"

Pros: "Great first class staff."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "there was no entertainment for a very long flight. also, it was night time, and the fasten seatbelt signs are so big and bright that it is impossible to go to sleep! Our plan was delayed for 2 hours, meaning we did not get in until 230am. it was exhausting!"

Cons: "No entertainment. No food. The flight was 2:25 minutes but American Airlines managed to make it take three and a half hours. The tone of staff was closer to prison guards than airline hostesses."

Pros: "My flight experience with Etihad Airway was fantastic. I will recommend anyone to flight with Etihad. Thank you for your great service Etihad crews. I will flight with you again soon."

Pros: "We flew out of Dallas on AA Eagle and what a great flight! Super roomy, great staff, newest aircraft. Loved it .. wish we could have flown all the way home to SLC on the Eagle!"

Pros: "Entertainment"

Cons: "Food was bad and crew never ask for food to economy passengers for long hour flight meal plan was not working I felt hungry and ac was too cold for all the time nothing good entertainment movies for different languages and no providing small personal hygiene kits for long flight"

Cons: "Long wait on Tarmac and not being able to add my boarding pass to my Apple wallet"

Pros: "Service and price"

Pros: "Nothing, because I did not fly"

Cons: "I wanted the salami and cheese crackers but the flight wasn’t given any, so I chose the veggie smash/pita bread/quinoa/almond thing. Not too bad, but definitely no match for salami and cheese crackers. You know?"

Pros: "I want $254 visa gift card as a refund!!!!!"
Cons: "Please see above"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed which caused us to miss our international connection. Flight attendants did not care, did not attempt to get us out faster, or put on a different flight. Asked for an announcement to be made on board or to be moved to seats closer to the front so we could get off the plane quicker, did not happen. Offboarded and sprinted across the airport for our international connection and was notified by gate attendents that the gate closed five minutes ago and that they could not let us on the plane. Meanwhile, the plane sat there for an additional 30 minutes while it fueled and waited for release from air traffic control. There were six travelers total stuck there in San Fran at that gate, all of us begging to be let on the plane to Beijing, the last one for over 24 hours. Zero compassion from staff at the the airline gate. They did not care about us and did not care about leaving their travelers stranded. Our total travel was Denver to Bangkok, 26 hours of travel including layovers in San Fran and Beijing. In San Fran (after missing the gate connection), United rerouted us through Haiwaii and the customer service agent that did this reroute did not finish the reroute to our final destination. We got to Haiwaii and were stranded again, at the United service desk for four hours having to once again provide documentation of our initial travel plans to Bangkok, having them build a new itinerary to our final destination. Overall, 20 additional travel hours have been added to our itinerary, almost double our initial travel time. We have had to call and cancel pre-arranged bookings in Thailand as we are now missing two full days off our trip. I am absolutely disappointed and heart broken as I write this still stuck in the Beijing airport waiting another six hours to connect to Bangkok. My fiancé and I were traveling to Thailand to get married and have received no compassion from anyone at this airline to try and get us there. I fly United for work quite frequently and have never experienced such horrendous service and lack of basic human compassion. I am flat out disgusted by United and will not be using them again, for personal travel or work related trips, because of this horrendous experience."

Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"

Cons: "2-1/2 hour delay due to poor maintenance"

Cons: "Seats in economy were cramped! Chair barely leaned back at all. Woke up with a sore neck. Cabin was freezing!"

Pros: "The flight attendant was trying to be accommodating. I and other passsengers bumped our heads when getting into seats. Can we say SMALL plane?"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The seats r too small"

Cons: "No food no entertainment. It's a sad change from how United used to be"

Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "That my flight got delayed in Denver over an hour and I missed my flight from LA to BJX because of that. I was suppose to land in BJX At 6am on Friday April 28th for a family emergency and now my next flight isn't till 1pm! This is the worst flight experience I have ever had in my life. Never in my life will I ever fly with united again. My plans got ruined, I was forced to sleep on the cold dirty floor of LAX. This cost me a lot of time and money, and I am upset about it. I will tell all my peers about this horrible experience and encourage them to never fly with united ever again. I do expect some sort of compensation over this horrible experience."

Pros: "Phone charger at every seat"
Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"

Cons: "Very late."

Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."

Cons: "My flight was ten hours late and no accommodations were provided. 40% off tickets to hotels and no way to get to them."

Cons: "Very bumpy ride....but I realize that can't be helped"

Pros: "Amazing plane with great features! Incredible staff!"
Cons: "Bathrooms should be bigger"

Cons: "Delayed and got downgraded"

Pros: "nice flight attendancts"

Pros: "Good crew, smooth flying, on-time"
Cons: "Crowded"

Pros: "There was a lot of space and a quick departure."
Cons: "When we got to LA event though we were early we had to wait. I know its not the airlines fault but it sucked."

Pros: "The crew was very kind to everyone and it was a very pleasant flight!"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Aircraft interior is dated."

Pros: "Hard working efficient crew. On time; a pleasant flight. Excellent flight attendant who covered all requests on her own."
Cons: "No problems"

Cons: "The plane temperature was ice cold and I was miserable the entire flight home"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The kindness of the staff."
Cons: "Having to go back to Denver because of a storm-in Omaha."

Pros: "I"
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"

Cons: "Seats are not comfortable and no leg room"

Cons: "Crew was not particularly friendly. One man was brusque when I asked for water to fill my small bottle. Rare since most crew members I've experienced have been very pleasant. Snacks were pretty paltry. Ned to serve some biscotti."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly, and that's really all that matters. The crew was great."
Cons: "Don't know why we have to pay for entertainment. It used to be free."

Pros: "I liked the flight attendants that they were courteous and helpful"
Cons: "I am a fearful flyer and that is putting it mildly. I didn't like that the pilot didn't introduce himself and talk to us about the flight."

Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."

Pros: "Crew nice and friendly."
Cons: "Free in-flight entertainment should be offered on all flights of 2+ hours through the United app. Had a family with young kids next to me who would have benefited from it (I saw the father trying to connect to it through the app), and overall it would make the flight a much more pleasant experience. After boarding a full hour later than what was originally said, it would have been nice to kick back with a movie for the flight."

Pros: "I know it's some sort of miracle. But there was only 40 people on an airbus. We all had about 3 seats each and we made full beds for ourselves."

Cons: "Boarded and left late for many to miss connections. No real help to get to new connection both on plane and off."

Cons: "Delays! Numerous delays! No assistance to help with changing missed connections or getting a hotel while stuck in Chicago."
