Pros: "The crew did everything they could for the passengers to make them comfortable and informed about the situation but unfortunately it was out of their hands."
Cons: "It may be La Guardia Airport that is the one to blame and not AA, but long story short I was on the airplane on the ground in NY for about 5 hours. We had a domino effect of things happen that caused us to be delayed and then cancelled. First a Gate change to a different terminal after boarding was suppose to begin so we had to take a shuttle over and we're still missing 50 passengers, Engine problem that required maintenance, refuel because we were in the plane on the ground waiting for so long, deplane and replane for 10 mins because of a law, on the runway and back to the gate for all these different occasions. When they finally let us off the plane after all these hours it was because of weather (although the skies were blue and the pilot was confident it wouldn't be an issue) they didn't actually cancel the flight until 5pm, my flight was suppose to take off at 9am. They were also required by law to give us free snacks Bc we hadn't eaten all day or had fresh air--these were all chips and soda...in gluten free so I had to starve. AA customer relations said they couldn't compensate because the issue that was documented in their records for my flight cancellation was because of "weather"... my flight couldn't be rescheduled until the following afternoon, making me have to cancel work 2 days in a row and pay for multiple taxis and and extra night of boarding. I will NEVER fly AA or La Guardia again."
Cons: "No power outlets. A bag of chips in 1st class is pretty weak. Compared to Europe flights we can from, aircraft felt like 1960's Aeroflot."
Pros: "It was on time boarding and landing"
Pros: "Was fairly standard flight. Left in time."
Cons: "Was in last group and had to check carry on."
Pros: "Small airport"

Pros: "Smooth flight, barely late."
Cons: "Broken sink, horribly uncomfortable, cramped seats."
Pros: "Communication from personnel was good. The desk workers did there best to deal with upset customers"
Cons: "We were delayed to do weather. Nothing AS could do but they tried."
Cons: "I've got to the airport at 4:30am because my flight was at 8:00am. Unfortunately I had to wait until 12:30pm to take another flight because American Airlines didn't have a flight crew for our aircraft. They did not refund money for the waiting, they didn't give any voucher for breakfast, they just gave us chips and drinks. People were very anxious and mad about the sInitiation."
Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."

Pros: "Arrived early. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "It seems like the plane was recently renovated and I loved the comfortable seats."

Cons: "The seats were so old, I didn't have a screen to watch movies on and it was really really cold"
Pros: "Never again. I had a connecting flight with a one hour layover and almost missed it. The plane to charlotte was very late boarding. Once i land I rush to my gate because I only have 20 minutes before they start boarding ; I get to the gate and have to wait almost an hour. At this point I still havent eaten because I am waiting around by the gate and the attendants are not communicating any information. Then they finally tell us that the reason the fligt hasnt boarded was because the flight attendant misplaced her luggage in the previous flight and was waiting to arrive to the terminal. Now how is that my issue? American Airlines needs to do better!"
Pros: "Slept like a log Gate staff were nice Lounge was very average poor food and beverage. Slow internet. Outdated furnishings. Not worth the access fee."
Cons: "Smallish seats and overhead storage Onboard Staff had brisque manner"
Cons: "Typical American. They start with a 75 minute delay because of crew problems. Then we sit at gate for 30 minutes while they "fix" something. Then they push out and cant start the plane so they cancel. I'm learning to hate American"
Pros: "Terminal changed at LaGuardia and we had to take a bus to another terminal. The staff were extremely kind and helpful with our items and transportation. The large size of the water cup."
Cons: "I didn't like that there were dirty used food wrappers in seat pocket in front of me. The fellow sitting in front of me was in the bulkhead seat, yet reclined his chair all the way leaving me very little space. I really wish flight attendants would ask travelers to be considerate and not recline their seats during there welcome speech. Or even ask if the person being squished is ok. There were no snacks offered. Drinks were not offered till at least an hour into flight. My first flight was canceled. Kayak let me know, American never notified me!"
Pros: "It got cancelled!"
Pros: "On time. Efficient boarding."
Cons: "Just because the flight was full.. They checked in my luggage but put on the wrong tag. I have no change clothes for more than 24 hours. Hopefully, they'll deliver to me by today. But I am not holding my breath on it"
Pros: "That we arrived on time to RDU."
Cons: "It left 20 minutes late from LGA and we had a connecting flight in Philadelphia. We had to run really fast and made it in the last minute."
Cons: "Never made it. My flights were canceled. So I don't even think this review counts."
Pros: "The actual plane crew and flight."
Cons: "The flight changed gates and terminals as well as times and the staff knew nothing about it. Staff on the phone and in person had poor attitude."
Cons: "Seats have no give to recline, also the bare flights are awful cos you think you're getting a cheap flight bit then the added fees tack on, making the price similar to other slightly more pricier options. The crew was fine, no complaints."
Pros: "Seats size are comfortable"
Cons: "No food on board , neautral flight attendants. No entertainment for free"
Cons: "Thought we were going to have to spend the night on New Jersey. Because of it. No apologies or compensation. As a result, we didn't get home until almost 3:00 A.M."

Pros: "Alex and Marcus -- flight attendants -- were awesome. They thanked passengers directly and personally for flying United, and this was a very nice touch and I observed that passengers were touched by this gesture."
Pros: "The access to free TV/Movies"
Cons: "Everyone from the Ticket Agents to TSA, to the crew treat you like you're a second class citizen. When I purchased this ticket, I didn't realize what "basic" meant, and I will never buy one of these types of fares again. Extremely disappointed with United."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Pros: "Quick flight. Arrived 30 mins early! Great friendly crew :)"

Pros: "The entire process was easy and the flight attendants were very friendly."
Pros: "I liked that I got to upgrade to first class for $120"
Cons: "The stewardist was rude, talked to much, talked horribly about the airplane and plane flight. She served someone orange and vodka instead of plain orange juice. Imagine if that was a child she served it to? She wasn't even very apologetic about it."
Cons: "Seat of 1.5 hours on board the flight, but understand it's beyond the airlines control"
Cons: "The fact that I wasn't able to sit with my travel partner"
Pros: "The staff was great, very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Theres no food whatsoever and no options for the tv unless you pay. The seats aren't spacious."
Cons: "I was forced to check in my carry-on bag (and pay). My flight was delayed and therefore I missed my connecting flight. I was unable to change seats, and the United staff were I accommodating to assist with the "Basic Economy" fare. I will never book United "basic economy" ever again!"
Cons: "Can't think of i enjoy it"
Cons: "Late departure blaming weather but there was no weather issue where they referenced (we all can check online these days guys -_-) RUDE crew, ran out of food (to purchase no less) by row 18 on a 38 row plane, almost missed connecting bc crew made no effort to help get people with tight connections off the plane first. I hate this airline. I am legacy Continental with 14yrs of business travel experience. United, you suck."
Pros: "The flight at the time was so crowded with people"
Cons: "Experiencing a delay in my flight and waited 4 hours in the airport."
Cons: "My trip was poor because my flight got cancelled and I couldn't get on another flight until 24hours later and there were NO hotels available at all that night and this was an emergency flight I needed to be on. I will not be flying with you guys again because no one cared that I was basically stranded in NY with no where to go and I wasn't given any options to make my trip with you guys better."

Pros: "The flight attendant was willing to give me 2 bags of pretzels for the two hour delay...that was nice"

Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "Gate staff and flight staff were brusque and rude."
Cons: "They are bar none the worst airline. Besides terrible service with overbooking m, they have zero places to charge your phone."

Pros: "The crew was friendly.. that's was it"
Cons: "The plane is tight. I'm not small but I'm not gigantic and I have comfortably fit in other planes. The skinny ppl next 2 me were cramped and u could barely lean back w/of feeling bad 4 ppl bhind u. It was only a 2hr flight nyc -chi-town but I had the worse crick!

Pros: "Easy fast friendly!"
Cons: "That it wasnt free :)"
Cons: "1.5 hour delay!"

Cons: "I did not like the fact that out of our four flights three were not too comfortable... & no tvs on three out of four"
Pros: "smooth sailing the staff was pretty good"
Cons: "The snacks were horrible. And the fact you get a sip of a drink makes no sense."
Cons: "Never made it so I can't rate it"
Pros: "I had a blood coat on my leg 2 months before my flight and the pain and swelling sometimes were unbearable, United was extremely accommodating, kind and courteous from the check in all the way to helping me retrieve my luggage in a wheel chair and that alone ease my pain, not having to do any extra effort was a huge relief on my legs. Definitely booking again with United and Kayak"
Cons: "TSA were less than basic, making me go up and down twice trough two different metal detectors and a body scan machine, then asking me to put both my hands above my head while standing up in the body scanner, a guy in a wheel chair who could only stand with a cane, these guys are barbaric but that's not the airlines fault."
