Pros: "we got a bottle of water and some pretzels"
Cons: "If American can fill every seat on the plane then they can probably serve soda and beer"
Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"
Pros: "The crew was fine the seats were horrible. I will not fly American again as this is the second trip I took in the last year one to Japan one to Greece. Both times I felt like a sardine."
Cons: "2 inches in both directions."
Pros: "The ground crew were very courteous but I feel they were not being completely honest regarding the delays. It felt like we were being given false hope that the flight was taking off soon."
Cons: "We were boarded thinking we were taking off soon. Except the delay continued for another hour and a half I found out. I had exited the plane having been given the option of staying in Gainesville in a hotel provided by the airline and being booked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. The seat was uncomfortable after such a long flight. But that is to be expected, I guess. The lady, kicking our seats behind us, because she felt it was disrespectful to recline your seat, even during a 9 hour flight, was the only drawback. But the crew responded approp"
Cons: "The best part about the food was the ice cream. The rest of the food was lackluster, but what I expected on a flight. The lady kicking our seats behind us because she thought it was disrespectful to recline made for an uncomfortable flight. The rest was as good as expected on American Airlines"
Cons: "Certain crew members could've been a bit more approachable and friendly."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "Does basic economy not get beverage service? My husband who was in basic economy and two rows in front of me got a beverage. The crew skipped from my row, # 22 all the way to the back. There was no rough air that would’ve made them cut off or announcement made that service was being discontinued."
Pros: "The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion."
Cons: "Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher."
Cons: "We miss our flight due to immigration paper"
Pros: "Customer service"
Cons: "The planes having chargers and the WiFi working"
Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"
Cons: "It felt like the staff had instructoions not to smile not even once. The food was beyond terrible. I’m not asking for hot bread like other airlines do, but at least serve it at room temperature instead of super frozen. Same for the butter. The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"
Cons: "Leg room"
Cons: "We have arranged for a wheelchair assistance and there was none available and we had to wait an hour after the flight landed for a wheelchair!"
Cons: "They left me! I know I was a “runner” but they knew I was just already going through security and it’s only a 3 terminal airport! They even asked if there were any runners!"
Pros: "We’re able to get a different flight after ours was re-scheduled several times."
Cons: "Re-scheduling was later then earlier then later, hard to plan’ Comfort: airlines should have a bill of rights for passengers."
Cons: "Broken seat headrest No in-flight entertainment except small screen rows away Reading lights didn’t work properly Flight attendant call signal beeped for first 2+ hours and no one could fix"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. American said I was a no-show so I couldn't get rebooked, my trip insurance was refused,etc. My vacation was ruined. American wouldn't change status either. Funny, I ate right across from the gate 2 hours before flight on the same card. This airline should be banned from flying. I do see a lot of other people are not happy either."
Pros: "Nothing, three hour delay"
Cons: "Why don’t they let people off the plane when they know there is a maintenance problem. They just lie to you and keep pushing the delay back when they could have let us get off the plane and get food. It’s ridiculous how much they keep BS’ing u"
Pros: "At Least the Staff was keeping us updated."
Cons: "No good-faith gesture was offered for the long delay. My associate and I completely missed an important dinner meeting with the rest of our team! Our team takes this trip each year and we have always drove. It' short and I then have transportation when I arrive. This year we decided to fly because it's even easier. This particular flight from Phoenix to Vegas took us longer then if we were to drive and I then spent more in RideShare. I won't be doing it again next year."
Pros: "Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly)."
Cons: "This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?"
Pros: "Crew was nicw"
Pros: "I was lucky enough to have some really sweet flight attendants and was surprised (though maybe I shouldn't be) that we got a small meal."
Cons: "The economy class seats are just so uncomfortable and as soon as someone puts their seat back it is difficult to see the screen in front of you without putting your seat back as well. I suppose there are worse airlines..."
Pros: "Considering BA cancelled our flight to Milan because our Delta flight to JFK was late....we had to buy 2 more round trip tickets. No one from Kayak or BA helped us.. we were out anithet $1100. ..worst experience ever will never use Kayak again. The right thing to do is for Kayak to refund our original.tickets....since we had no control over our delayed flight but I am sure that will not happen."
Cons: "See above ....."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "AA has nine boarding groups, which queue up in two lanes. Each of the two lanes hold about 5 people, at most. This is ridiculous. It creates enormous crowds of people jockeying to be near the tiny lanes for when their number is called 5 or 10 minutes down the line. AA needs to reduce the number of boarding groups, lengthen the lanes, and provide more of them. No other airline boards this way. That's because this boarding method is stupid. Unsurprisingly, our plane took off late because they couldn't get everyone boarded in time."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "The plane was older and seat room was pretty bad. Under the seats was more open though."
Cons: "The fact that my original seats were not given. The other issue was that Alaska wasn’t my airline but American was. They didn’t even tell me until I got to the gate, moved over to another and then got transferred over to my gate."
Cons: "Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow."
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: "Flight crew was courteous Seat was as comfortable as an airline seat can be"
Cons: "BULKHEAD seat did not have entertainment. Had to go in search of water"
Cons: "I had a connecting flight in DFW to BOS. My plane left late from OKC, giving very little time to get to my connecting flight in DFW. The flight arrived in BOS and I got to the gate at 6:15pm; with a flight departure of 6:25pm. I felt the gate agent handled the situation very poorly. Instead of letting me, and another passenger with the same situation as mine, let us know why the gate was closed 10 minutes prior to departure was rude and brusque and said sorry, nothing could be done. A simple explanation of why we couldn't board would have gone a long way. She finally barked out for us to go to Customer Service to re-route us. Customer Service was very slow and the agents had attitudes. I did get on an AA flight the next morning, including comp vouchers for dinner and breakfast, but I missed an entire day of the conference I was attending in Boston."
Pros: "Staff"
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "The time of the flights were very good- both departure and arrival"
Cons: "On the departure flight, the flight attendants in economy kept hitting the seats each and everyone they brought out food and drink trolleys."
Pros: "Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised."
Cons: "Landing was ROUGH"
Pros: "Spaciousness of the middle seat they gave me headphones"
Cons: "Not a thing to complain about wonderful flight"
Pros: "Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!"
Pros: "no fresh food"
Cons: "Flight from LAX was late causing our flight to leave 2 hours late missing our flight to CAE. This would have caused us to miss wedding events on Sat Drove to DIA took Red Eye to CLT and drove to CAE to pick up car and drive to Charleston for wedding event at 11:00 Am"
Pros: "Leg room is extremely limited and they made me Check my bag even though it was not at all over size and fit easily into the overhead on my previous flight. Gate crew was impolite but crew on plane was friendly."
Cons: "Smaller seats with very limited leg room (I'm only 100 pounds and 5'4" and felt crowded!) Forced to check bag"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Cons: "The flight attendant continued to serve alcohol to passengers (employees of TomKats catering - they screamed it throughout the flight) that were drunk and belligerent. Her poor judgement, and their complete lack of control, made the flight miserable."
Cons: "I was first sent to the wrong terminal by a female flight attendant. When I arrived at the other terminal, I had already missed my initial flight, so crying back to terminal 3 another nice lady helped me get on the next flight to chicago and from their I had to take a flight to Philly. This really made me upset as I had nursing classes the next day and I would not reach philly until 8pm that night. On the flight to philly from chicago, the plane ride was decent, the crew was nice, but their was no more over head space and I had to give my carry on for them to put in the back of the plane with the rest of my baggage. The plane was small and I did not expect this flight."
Pros: "Food was good and staff was nice."
Cons: "Plane was old, seats uncomfortable like all the cushion in the seat had been worn out, and a bathroom was out of order so we had to wait in line for the other one that would quickly run out of paper towels."
Cons: "Missed the connection in CLT to BTR even though flight status on AA's website indicated that it was delayed enough so that I could make the connection. Ended up spending the night in a cold-assed airport with minimal comfort. I was already confirmed on this flight and AA knew, or should've known, that I was enroute. Not pleased at all."
Cons: "No"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the flight was very smooth. Lots of choices for drinks."
Cons: "The food and boarding."

Flights was delayed twice. No specific reason

Pros: "The crew was great."
Cons: "There were no phone chargers, and there were no snacks."
Cons: "Check in problems with precheck. There seems to be a consistent issue with seeing our precheck on our boarding pass. This has happened twice. Otherwise good overall. Time to fix the problem"
Pros: "Seats and layout was updated. More room in economy. Staff was personable 3 bathrooms in economy rather than just 2."
Cons: "Offer dinner service for a six hour flight."
Pros: "The crew was rude. Also made me check my carryon when there was plenty of overhead room."
Cons: "Older airplane with ragged seats; food wasn't very good"
Cons: "I'd really like to see specific baggage allowance written on the ticket or confirmation letter. That was very frustrating that it wasn't specifically listed. Especially with multi-city trip, having to go look up each leg and try to remember allowances, would have been better if it was just listed al"
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Getting off the plane."
Cons: "First, it was a big ordeal to get seats together, traveling with 3 children. Seats did not recline. No movie screen, entertainment. Weren’t allowed a carryon, only under seat. Will not fly united again."
Cons: "Another airport would be better, no extra charges for bags would be even better!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "What a rip off airline trying to nickel and dime you every chance they can. You think you got a value until they add in extra money every chance they can. $13 to pick your seat. Tight fitting seats. They don't allow a carry on bag when you book economy and you have to pay for your carry on. Etc."
Pros: "It got me from a to b"
Cons: "Being on time, better food service, entertainment usb plug for charging , seat comfort"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, wonderful crew, even got an appearance from Santa (we flew week before Christmas) which our 3ywar old loved"
Pros: "Getting off the plane. The unusually chipper voices telling us “B-bye”"
Cons: "I remember reading that Aeroflot in Russia has better customer service than United Air Lines. Well, it was on full display today on our flight from LAX to Kona repleat with the veteran battle ax barking orders at passengers; “The Bathroom is by the blue curtaaaaaaiiiins!!!!!’ Poor victim seemed utterly humiliated. Seating is cramped, seats narrow and unsupportive and the old 757’s (c. 1997) entertainment system is ancient...the touch screens seemed unresponsive, but were in fact just slow...as 5-7 seconds would elapse between touching the screen and the command being implemented. A full re-boot was ordered about 30-45 minutes into the flight. As expected, there were some bumps in the air, but we welcommed them because it required the crew to sit down, freeing us of their ultra passive agressiveness."
Pros: "We arrived on time despite leaving 45 minutes late"
Cons: "LAX now buses people to the planes. We stood on the bus for 45 minutes and then drove for 10 minutes on an active taxi way. The crew for united just does not seem motivated anymore on any flight. Even in first class we were offered water only 2 on a 5 hour flight. The crew just sat in the front and looked at their phones. The food made me sick for two days - so it is better to just not eat it and bring your own. It is sad as I united used to be a great airline and now they just seem to focus on what new fee they can charge."
Cons: "No food on a 7 hour flight?? That comes close to torture in my book. Crossing a huge ocean = food you don't have to pay for, in my book."
Pros: "Whole trip to Cancun without wifi"
Cons: "The seats are more crammed side to side and frontto back than EVER. No room to crack open a laptop.... iPad yes but not a keyboard."
Pros: "The gate was right next to the one I flew in from."
Pros: "The crew was friendly, and the flight time was an hour shorter than scheduled. But those are silver linings to real problems I encountered."
Cons: "This flight was actually from Denver to Kona. There was 1.5 hour delay due to mechanical issue with plane, so we had to switch gates and planes. That wasn't so bad. What made it bad was an extra 45 minute delay because apparently maintenance forgot to sign off on the new plane. Also, the space below the seat for my feet and carry-on was unacceptable. All the aisle seats like mine had only half the space of the window seats for their feet. If you're in an aisle seat on that plane, it's impossible to fit anything but the size of a small purse under the seat in front of you. And the middle seat fares only a bit better. Finally, with 7 hours of flight time plus about an hour waiting to depart from gate on plane, the crew ignorantly decided to hand out the Hawaii form to fill out within 2 minutes of preparing to land. Many people didn't have time to fill out the form before being required to put tray tables up. Fortunately, these forms aren't as serious as going thru customs, but it's stupid to pass out the forms that late into the flight expecting people to complete them."
Pros: "The entertainment onboard was good"
Cons: "Five hour delay due to the aircraft maintenance."
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly."
Cons: "Temperature was way too warm."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Crew was very positive and helpful despite the delay."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2.5 hr. To use the entertainment you have to download an app, but in order to download the app you have to pay for wifi."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was great!! The crew was great!"
Cons: "It was SO hot on plane, I was miserable the whole flight. It started out with a delay on the tarmac due to the air conditioning not working. We had to wait for maintenance to fix that. That wasn’t a big deal to me. We didn’t have a connecting flight to catch, so we were understanding....things happen. The problem for me began when HOT air was blowing on my legs the WHOLE flight. I was miserable! They only had pizza for purchase which did NOT sound appetizing in that heat. It was a terribly long flight and I was so happy to land and get off!!"
Pros: "Smooth sailing, the crew was so friendly and flight were all on time. They had really good movies on board which made time fly faster and"
Cons: "Nothen bad to say."
Pros: "Very friendly & accommodating crew. Pilot kept up informed. Personable disposition exuded across the board."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and easy. The crew were friendly and accommodating. The entertainment was bring your own phone, tablet or computer to watch movies over wifi. We could not access our United account so we could not watch the movies, which was lame for a 5 hour flight. The food was also unpleasant as usual. You'd think a multimillion dollar airline could afford to feed people more than drinks and a cookie. What happened to the hospitality of the industry? If you came to my house for 5 hours and I gave you one cookie and a beverage maybe two you would think I was rude or down right cheap."
Cons: "The crew were wonderful. My husband was on a business trip and I was able to sit with him. The staff didn't wake me up and they were generous with the sodas."
Pros: "That it was only a 5/6 hour flight"
Cons: "Movie choices were very limited. Need better snacks than only little mixed crackers."
Pros: "757 first class was excellent"
Cons: "First time using 1st class, now I am spoiled. United coach seats are to small"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Wifi"
Cons: "Boarding personnel was short and rude in some instances. Condescending comments were made when passengers were not forming lines to their liking."
Pros: "Everyone that works there"
Cons: "No free WiFi"
Cons: "Internet is painfully slow. I can't believe I paid 6.99$ for almost nothing!"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Crammed unconfortable"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Too tight. $8 sends a little high for the amount of commercials one has to suffer though on the tv"
Cons: "Ran out of the food that i wanted... settled with something that wasn't great."
Cons: "Lost baggage"
Pros: "Service/flight attendants were great. Flight was smooth mostly. Space was good as nobody next to me. Flt from YYZ via ORD to SFO misplaced my luggage and got it the next day."
Cons: "ORD to SFO was very turbulent and luggage didn't make it. Seats tight in middle for ORD to SFO"
Pros: "Friendly staff and attentive"
Cons: "Boarding was late, then, after boarding, we were advised leaving was delayed due to no fuel service available, then other problems arouse, over all, we sat at the gate for over 2 hours before take off."
Cons: "All of it. EVERY SINGLE BIT..."
Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We where delayed for two hours or so, if you asked upon arrving during what should have been boarding you got a curt remark no information. There way no anouncement about a delay just one that the crew arrived, nothing about why we where delayed or estimation of time when we would board. Other delayed fights where getting information over the loud speaker. The attendants left the area came back when we could board and hurded us on the plane. Not a friendly face or smile. Everyone was tired, a little civility would have gone a long way"
Pros: "Great entertainment options. Thank you"
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Left on time. Everyone was pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are cramped. Could not understand flight attendants or captain when they spoke on the intercom. Sat in one of the last rows. Didn't get to us for drink service."
Cons: "The seats in coach were curved in a weird way. The seats made my posture bad."
Pros: "The stewards were awesome. Funny kind and attentive"
Pros: "guess that the only thing I liked is that there was no problem during the flight."
Cons: "When we landed un Houston it took forever to get off the plane. It was unclear where to get my luggage. I had to leave it to pass through TSA to run and try to catch my flight from Houston to Chicago. When I arrived at my gate I got there just in time because they were starting to board the plane. I was uconfortable sitting between two men. I traveled alone. When we landed in Chicago, took forever to get to the gate so we can get off the plane. There was no entertainment, at least for me. My phone was way low in battery and ai couldn't watch anything."
Pros: "Only person in the row so could work sideways."
Cons: "Very cramped, movies and shows require payment"
Pros: "Hu"
Pros: "On time,excellent communication .."
