Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."
Pros: "First of I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Parnel at JFK airport. He was such a big help. And his customer service was excellent."
Pros: "Thanks Jennifer, my flight attendant"
Cons: "Under the current health emergency the whole crew went above and beyond. Thank you!"
Pros: "flight delay due to mechanical problem. pilot made up time, avoided excessive turbulence and silky smooth landing. attentive and highly visible patient flight attendants"
Cons: "no complimentary food option (other than pretzels /crackers) on 4 hr flight. aainflight provided live sports and news but movie selection was limited."
Pros: "Great cre"
Pros: "The flight attendant was awesome. She was extremely friendly and very welcoming."
Cons: "Because if the delay from LAX, I missed my connecting flight to Okinawa. The ladies were able to help me get on a flight that left a 3 hours later. It would’ve been nice if AA had let the connecting flight people know this could happen."
Cons: "No deberían cojerse los artículos personales de los pasajeros"
Pros: "Crew was great from checking in to the flight attendant and cockpit."
Pros: "The gate crew handled the delay as best they could."
Cons: "Seems that a crew timing out could be better anticipated."
Pros: "Crew kept very calm and courteous during a delay."
Cons: "There were a ton of angry people about the amount of delays that happened today. There was no reason given and it caused issues."
Pros: "When my original flight out of Roanoke was delayed so much that I was going to miss my connection an employee went above and beyond to find me a different flight to ensure I got home that day."
Cons: "The first AA employee basically told me I was out of luck and there was nothing he could do, which was incorrect and he just didnt want to do everything he could to help me like the other employee eventually did."
Cons: "Boarding crew was not very polite. You can get the same message across with out being rude. Just not necessary."
Cons: "Our extra legroom premium seats didn’t feel like we had much more room. No TVs, WiFi that didn’t work...left a lot to be desired. I know the standards are pretty low in the US compared to other countries, but for a plane that seemed relatively new, the lack of standard technology seemed cheap."
Pros: "During boarding the first class cabin attendant gave me water so I could take a pill I had forgotten."
Cons: "Lav could have been cleaner. Boarding area at airport is small and crowded for all airlines. Stairs to aircraft instead of ramps."
Pros: "Overall good value for money for a Economy seat. The aircraft is of a recent make & model with the latest amenities on board. Crew is friendly & departure well on time."
Cons: "Exit seats on row 12 are NOT exit seats although they are sold as such. They have regular leg room. Only the left must seat has more leg room as the row in front in that spot does not have 3 seats."
Cons: "The on-boarding in Barcelona was a little odd. Instead of calling boarding by groups or zones it was a free for all. That could have been better organized"
Cons: "Ticket says must be at gate 10 minutes prior. We experienced a delay in security. Got to gate 13 minutes prior and was informed our tickets were given away to standby travelers since it was a busy day. 12 hours later we got to new York could not board standby to Philadelphia. Our bags made it to Philadelphia."
Pros: "I appreciate that I was able to switch seats thereby giving the cat and its owner more room."
Cons: "I have to say I was very surprised that there would be a passenger flying next to me with a cat in a carrier seated next to me."
Pros: "No real waiting and everything was on time"
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"

Cons: "The food that was served."
Pros: "Wide seats"
Cons: "Mo food service"
Pros: "Nice plane once they got it working!"
Cons: "Turned up with pet cat having called American Airlines numerous times to confirm all was ok. I had all the correct paperwork and they did not let my cat through. Having then gone through to the gate without cat (left cat with husband) I was then called up at the gate to ask if I was flying with a pet because it was on my records. The flight was then delayed for 3 hours with little explanation and as far as I'm aware, no compensation."
Pros: "Quick smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything went well with this flight."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Service was perfect"
Cons: "Boarding process is horrible, too many groups, not logical at all."
Pros: "Everything was organized pleasant staff,"
Pros: "Service in coach was nice and attentive."
Cons: "Briish Airways does not fly to JFK from Edinburgh. I paid for a flight that apparently did not exist. I had to purchase another flight from another airline on top of the flight that I booked with Kayak. I was supposed to fly to my original airport, but I had to fly to a tiny little airport upstate and pay for a bus to get me back to NYC. I doubt I'll see any of that money I lost in the initial transaction..."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to weather, but nothing can change that. We still landed on time. Many other passengers were complaining."
Cons: "Plane was not board on time. Delayed taking off."
Pros: "It got me home I was able to watch a movie They gave me the whole can of Coke Zero I got both the pretzels AND the cookies A321 aircraft, so power at every seat and good entertainment options"
Cons: "Ended up being in a row of three broad-shouldered men, so the "Preferred" seat I paid extra for was not very preferable I despise the practice of making some seats require additional $$$ - just so they can advertise lower fares. Flight was delayed, which is more common than I'd like They're stuffing planes fuller and fuller while offering fewer and fewer amenities at an ever-increasing price with multiple additional costs"
Pros: "I did have to speak with an attendant at the customer service area of checkin and she was great. Very helpful."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Flight delayed more than one hour. Poor communications by pilots. No recognition by any crew members that it was Father's Day!!!"
Pros: "I did like that the flight attendant checked my bag for me land was very forth coming on tips on how to save money with traveling. The fights we very smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that airport staff didn't alert when the plane was leaving (no announcement was made and staff gave wrong information, I ended up"
Pros: "The British Airways flight to Europe had on-demand movies, with a screen on the back of the seat in front of you. The American Airlines return flight only had a cabin screen, where everyone watched the same movie. I will say, however, that the two movies I watched were excellent, so the outcome was fine (but given the option, I'd take the BA option of on-demand viewing!)."
Cons: "The seats on the AA weren't quite as comfortable as the BA flight (seats sat pretty straight upright, and not too plush... but all in all, not terribly uncomfortable)."
Pros: "It was all good . I enjoyed the service. Was friendly . Take off and landing went well . The plane was awesome. The temperature in the plane stayed the same . Not to hot or cold . I travel alot for my job . I half to say , this was a great crew ."
Cons: "I honestly can't come up wirh something I didn't like ."
Pros: "I did not actually get to take this flight. My father was placed into hospice right before this trip and passed away about a week later. The airline was kind and sympathetic and refunded the total airfare. They made the whole thing much easier than anticipated."
Cons: "The only negative aspect of the three hopswas a couple of gate changes prior to boarding... one at Dallas and one at Charlotte and the could not have been much further apart, new gate from the original gate... but it made for a leg-stretcher during a long day of sitting"
Cons: "$8 for cheap wine?! Disgusting."
Cons: "Very!! Dissatisfied & disappointed with AA. Finally took off over 3 hrs late. At that point everyone was thrilled that we were going versus being canceled. Had food in business class which tasted like it had been overcooked for three hours"
Cons: "Lengthy delay due to a broken seat. Missed connection then the next plane had an equipment issue. Had to deplane after 40 min and wait on a new plane. Every flight has had an equipment issue causing a major delay. I'll never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Cons: "Everyone excellent"
Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew allowed us to move to open row of seats"
Cons: "It seemed that asking for extra service was an imposition on the 'gossip session' for the crew standard fare of biscuits"
Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."
Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"
Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"
Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Cons: "United horrible customer service"
Cons: "No flight"
Cons: "Haven’t taken it yet. It’s 2:00 a.m. and I’m waiting for the next available flight at 8 a.m."
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"
Cons: "So many maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections. Gate attendants were crabby and not very helpful. Absolutely no leg room. Much less than most major airlines."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was CRAAAAABY!!"
Pros: "Left on tarmac for 20 minutes prior to takeoff. Late flying into IAD with no guidance from crew or ground crew with very short time to catch next flight. With no info, felt abandoned."
Cons: "Lack of info from United crew."
Pros: "Gate attendant helped reseat my 2yo so that he wasn't across the aisle from me. Enjoyed the comped food in the Economy Plus seats."
Pros: "The crew was very professional."
Cons: "Nothing, good flight and no problems."
Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Pros: "Rebooked flight was very good. Comfortable but one suit case Didn't transfer. It was promptly deliver the next morning. High marks for that. Last leg was Alaska airlines. Free wine was nice and egress from front and back of plane. Very smart."
Cons: "Lost suitcase...more waiting and rescheduling at airport."
Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."
Cons: "Average seats, no in flight entertainment or beverage service"
Pros: "Flight was re booked and we got seats on the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and the plane was waved off from the runway when it landed in EWR"
Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"
Pros: "I liked the staff on the DELTA flight I was transferred onto."
Cons: "United flight was delayed by 2 hours unitially, and eventually by 5 hours. Transfer to Delta flight was acceptable but deposited me at the wrong airport! A lot of money and inconvenience and delay after that to get to my destination. And no compensation offered for that!"
Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."
Pros: "Staff was courteous and professional. I had a layover and the connection was short but thankfully the staff was helpful. I will continue to do business with united."
Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"
Cons: "Too damn small of plane, cramped in and treated like cattle, not valued customers"
Cons: "Flights were significanly delayed that resulted in missing connecting flights. During my return trip I ran to make my connecting flight just barely on time and once boarded we sat on the plan for an hour before taking off. Flight to get to Richmond on united was a major problem. I work up with a notification that my flight time had been moved up 2.5 hours ( a problem as I live 2.5 hours away from the airport) I called and they said it was a mistake that I was good to take the origional flight. A few hours later I get a phone call from united asking if I could be at the airport 2.5 hours early. I said unfortunately no because I had already spoken to someone from united and they had reassumed me that the origional flight was still good. She then said if I couldn't make it early it was no problem. So I get to the airport at the origional time after speaking to two different agents who told me this was ok to find the plane delayed and causing me to miss my missed connection."
Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"
Pros: "On time, safe, good landing, friendly crew."
Cons: "Stingy on drinks. No food. No on board entertainment."
Cons: "Long delay in San Francisco"
Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"
Pros: "Pilot and plane crew seemed good"
Cons: "Takeoff scheduled for 7:45pm, didn't happen until after midnight. Only one agent provided at airline counter to help so stood in line for a very very long time."
Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night. I will not be flying with United after this trip."
Pros: "No wi fi for this flight, I get it that it's a small plane on a short journey but I really miss it when it is not there. My food assessment is just based on the free snacks as I didn't buy any food but the classic peanuts would be better than the snack mix provided. The crew I feel for as they, I am sure, felt the stress of the flight being late to get in (and thus causing the other flights of that particular plane to be behind). The free sandwiches offered by SFO as an apology were a good thought but no substitute for timely delivery. Not a nock on SFO just an unfortunate circumstance."
Cons: "Same.as above."
Pros: "On time, smooth ride and fantastic landing in a small plane."
Cons: "There is apparently nothing between the floor and the outside of the plane because it was very cold upon entering the plane and it got considerably colder on the route. The cabin temperature was fine but the floor was freezing on both outbound from Bend and inbound."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "That I missed flight due to LH bus connection"
Pros: "Our flight went smoothly and we left on time. The crew was friendly and we had no delays this time around."
Cons: "The boarding took a long time and the coffee on the flight is the worst I've ever head. I feel like United gives the bare minimum when it comes to the customers and doesn't really make an effort to do more than that."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and awesome crew"
Cons: "No wifi or any entertainment"
Pros: "I like that I was put on another plane and went from Richmond to Chicago. It was a very small plane but mine was overbooked."
Pros: "The pretzel snacks had flavoring added"
Cons: "My seat didn't recline My arm rest wouldn't raise My flight was delayed for hours There wasn't another available flight I could switch to I lost a whole day of work from getting in at 1:00 AM"
Cons: "when i purchased my flight ut was for 6am. After paying for my tickets my flight time was changed to 9am. Then 24 hours prior to my flight it wad changed to 11am due to technical difficulties. This caused me to have to take a later flight out of Chicago O'Hare."
Pros: "Glad they waited for me."
Pros: "That it was a short flight"
Cons: "Yet another delay. It took me a total of over 30 to FLY across country with United. I could have driven in that amount of time."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."
Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!! Kept changing gate numbers causing me to walk all over airport while having severe knee pain!! Very upsetting and painful"
Pros: "The entertainment on the app for movies is pretty cool but everything else sucks!!!"
Cons: "Never never never ontime. I can't trust your flights to get me where I need to go. 3 weeks in a row your 5:20pm out of Richmond, VA was late due to waiting on an aircraft. How can that be? You didn't fix the problem the first time? I won't be flying United unless something changes. You lost a customer for life"
Pros: "So glad the flight left on time and we actually arrived early!!"
Cons: "'Snacks' were spicy and they should be aware not everyone likes spicy food"
Cons: "A little bumpy"
Pros: "Everything was on time and good"
Pros: "Flight attendant and pilot were great, smooth flight."
Cons: "Despite pre-checking in for my return flight I wasn't given an actual seat assignment until I was at the boarding gate. I has previously asked two United employees for assistance with my seat assignment (one of whom was customer service, go figure) and it took a third request from a different gate agent to actual get a seat assigned."
