Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Delayed for an hour and a half because of a flat tire"
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and aircraft crew."
Cons: "Customer service. Ridiculous when buying flight tickets, regardless the economy “restriction” if you buy two tickets together you put them together even if your picking the seats. A money scam charging more for us to pick our seats. Common sense isn’t that common"
Cons: "offer coffee at least"
Pros: "The plane didn’t crash"
Cons: "The air smelled like a dirty diaper, seats are over priced for the very little improvement over basic economy"
Pros: "Kind staff. Nice, newer aircraft"
Cons: "Copilot was changed/ not on time and delayed the flight by half an hour. Also, sat beside a man who was far too large to be in a single seat with hygiene issues he clearly was unaware of. Made the 3 hr flight very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The 2 flight attendants who continued to work this flight were amazing. The gate agent in Phoenix was also great."
Cons: "7 hour delay initially because of a mechanical problem, but massively exacerbated by an inability to find crew. Disappointing...."
Pros: "No problem with boarding and flight crew. Seating was comfortable."
Cons: "Checked in 1 hour 45 minutes early and our checked baggage did not leave with the plane. Lost baggage representative on the OKC airport was incompetent. Repeated contact information 3 times and still had to follow up delivery with corrected address and phone number."
Pros: "The crew tries."
Cons: "Planes are just uncomfortable and the airlines have a monopoly on long distance travel."
Cons: "Actually having a flight to Charlotte. They delayed flight without much warning... actually, they were delaying/cancelling many flights without warning most of the day. Long story short, I had to get a ride to LaGuardia, to catch a different flight. That flight got delayed when boarding"
Cons: "Usual uncomfortable seating. Plane was not pulled into a gate. DCA should be an embarrassing operation for American."
Cons: "American’s little buses at DCA suck. Why should I have to wait for everyone who gate checked a bag to get to the terminal? Let me walk to the terminal, get more buses, or get more gates."
Cons: "Wi-Fi was spotty."
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."
Pros: "Their CRJ was very comfortable. More comfortable and modern than what I’ve seen on a lot of Skywest/delta connection flights. Crew was great"
Pros: "One plane had comfortable seats, with adjustable headrests."
Cons: "The first plane had very uncomfortable seats that do not really lean back and no charging ports for devices. No free WiFi."
Cons: "Three of my five most recent flights with American have been delayed. Champs."
Pros: "Pilot kept informing us what was happening..."
Cons: "Plane already late, then 15 minute taxi, then they could not drive the walkway up to us correctly so another 10 minutes wasted. We missed our connecting flight... rescheduled with different airlines much later. Missed a whole day out of our three day visit. Airline travel at its normal worst!"
Cons: "Delay was too long - thanks. The weather was cleared but still delay for no reason."
Pros: "Excellent experience despite short weather delay. Outstanding flight crew"
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Pros: "One cabin crew went the extra mile for me...rescued a partial dental plate which I had inadvertently tossed in the trash."
Cons: "delays were horrible."
Pros: "TV screen in back rest was nice"
Cons: "See comments above"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "the flight was good"
Cons: "the delay, we stay from 12 to 6:30 that the flight finally depart"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. We were delayed at the gate one hour and the captain allowed us to deboard which was nice."
Cons: "The food was not great- a very plain pasta for dinner and a muffin top and yogurt for breakfast. I thinking was an older plane because there were no individual screens and no place to plug in devices. They played Pirates of the Caribbean on small overhead monitors."
Pros: "I usually don't like or at the meal in coach, but I had a ravioli pasta dish that was great. Also the wine was a much better quality then what I have been getting on the other airlines."
Cons: "On my particular row of seats the power outlets were dead. The flight attendant tried to reset, which reset the entertainment but the outlet remained dead. Used the USB port to charge."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "- Departure and arrival ahead of schedule - Great entertainment system and choices"
Cons: "- Rather uncomfortable seats and minimal leg room for a 5'11'' / 180 lbs passenger - Flight attendants were superficial (continuously overlooked / ignored me on the service cycles), I was seated on the window."
Cons: "We bought 3 seats on Business class. My seat did not have the TV working. After flying for 2 hours the flight attendant gave me a portable TV, after asking multiple times. The food was totally horrible. The catering company that American Airlines uses needs to be replaced immediately. Flying TAP, Emirates, Latam, British Airlines , their catering company is very good. Flight attendants were sarcastic and rude. The service was equivalent if you fly coach class."
Cons: "Missed connecting flight because they left late out of our origin location. We were only 2 min late but they closed the door eventhough they knew the previous flight had landed and we were on our way to the flight."
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Left on time, seemed to have a little more leg room than on previous flights. Experienced some air turbulence, but not sure pilot could have done anything about it. Delayed refreshments, but the attendants still managed to serve everyone."
Cons: "Seemed to take a long time for luggage to arrive; not sure what problem was. Not sure why we had to claim our luggage, only to turn it in again right away."
Pros: "The flights were smooth and easy."
Cons: "Due to the crew being late, my second flight was delayed and hour and a half."
Pros: "Very kind crew and staff."
Cons: "Newport news has no comfortable seating in the airport...no where to nap until the flight."
Pros: "That it finally took off and landed."
Cons: "Everything else! American is getting worst by the day."
Cons: "We upgraded our seats to row 8, priority seating and the legroom was absolutely terrible. I completely regret upgrading our seats and paying extra for nothing. This was a terrible over-night experience. We also did not have Wifi, which AA.com indicated we would. The plane was very outdated and the seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Pretty comfortable"
Pros: "Curtious people...friendly and made sure we had what we needed for a comfortable flight"
Cons: "After arriving in Phoenix the connecting flight was delayed then cancelled. They put me up in a hotel and got me out the next morning. Other than missing a scheduled meeting. They were very helpful"
Cons: "Don't like the habit of having the staff reserve the last 3 rows of the airplane for personal usage when there are no other spare seats on the plane. Then we were lied to by the attendants that they did this to balance the weight across the aircraft. The seats are incredibly uncomfortable to begin with and mine had a broken seat bag making things worse. All in all a miserable flight to Europe for my kids and me."
Pros: "Because our plane sat on the tar mat in both White Plains and D.C. for over 40 minutes after an hour delay, we missed our connection to Knoxville. AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again."

AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again"

Cons: "You had to pay to watch television and movies"
Pros: "I liked the staff at united in Pittsburgh who helped solve the real mess with my reservation"
Cons: "I did not like having my flight to Düsseldorf changed to flight to Frankfurt without being told of the change. That flight was late so I missed my connection to GVA- Frankfurt is a dreadful airport"
Pros: "Entertainment system good. Nice new aircraft 777-300 ER. On-time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "Vegetarian food choices very limited."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly on board. The gate crew were a little curt, but it was a full flight and they were really trying to get everyone on board quickly so I can't be too upset about that."
Cons: "Few entertainment options - direct TV unavailable for about half the flight, WiFi also unavailable for the same."
Cons: "Late flight. No support to find back-up flights. No help with tips of how to navigate chicago airport to hopefully get to connecting flight in timely manner. Shuttle service could have been mentioned. The area of the airport I would need to get to in Chicago was not known. Although thr flight to Chicago was by far not full Iwas denied my request to take my roll on on the flight. It fits under seat. I am 70 and had to run across the airport."
Pros: "The transportation..."
Cons: "There's absolutely no leg room it's the smallest amount of room I have ever experienced on a plane - even the first class is eh - mediocre at best. I am slim and fit and I had very little to no room. Consider someone overweight and they would have to buy 2 seats... united is definitely not my favorite airline..."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No storage space for carry-on luggage despite boarding with premier access! Very long taxi after landing to get to the gate, losing a lot of my connection time. Long walk to departure gate in Houston, despite same airline."
Pros: "While it was a long flight it was comfortable and surprisingly the food was good."
Cons: "We ran late as the plane needed some work on it before we could take off; when it was finally done there was a storm and could not take off again. We were behind over an hour before we could leave but we made up for in as we had good tail wind."
Pros: "I like the United app for ease of checkin"
Cons: "Flying itself is a terrible experience. Cramped seats, food is nonexistent, no wifi"
Pros: "every seat come with tV"
Cons: "Disappointed that few come with closed caption. Lousy choice of menu"
Pros: "United has a lot of issues but I can handle it...."
Cons: "I was so upset that when I went to El Salvador and when I came back UNITED charged me for my bag and my partrner bag too... I spent another 125 USD for that and you guys never say a word about it before ... that is not fair at all...."
Pros: "Great experience overall"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and helpful. Comfort is OK but that's because we shelled out $35 per seat extra."
Pros: "Attendants were kind and helpful The food and drink provisions were good"
Cons: "A small problem with my seat back screen"
Pros: "The crew was nice. Coffee was great."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. Doesn't look like it's been thoroughly cleaned in ages. My seat was broken. Had to sit upright the entire trip. Bathroom door wouldn't stay closed."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Pros: "Rude boarding employee- Rude in general on phone with United Got to my confirmation code after having to change my flight and we got disconnected- didn't call me back when he had my number. Lost the connection"
Cons: "This airline is so beyond awful. American has the most janky planes, uncomfortable seats, and worst service on the plane. I had to beg the flight attendant to get me a wine because I was asleep when they came by and missed them by not even a half hour... She acted like it was so hard and it took asking 4 times and finally just asking another person. I was so annoyed. They also have shitty food selections per usual. Who chooses those snack items?! They clearly have no taste. I was miserable the whole flight. I usually am not a miserable traveler so this isn't just me being negative, I seriously may write one review every few months, only if something is really good or really bad. The fact that I'm even taking the time to write this says a lot!!!"
Pros: "Getting from A to B safely. Some of the crew were extremely helpful and sweet."
Cons: "The poor guy next to me had a TV screen that was not functioning properly. He could only watch Lion King because the top right part of his screen would not register his touch. 15 hours with no entertainment."
Pros: "OK until we boarded."
Cons: "My flight out of Chicago was cancelled. I hate when they lie to you that it was weather related. At the time of my flight to White Plains at 1:50 PM there was no snow in Chicago or at White Plains, Moreover the 6 PM flight left to White Plains when it was snowing both here and there. The only option given to me was standby on the 6PM flight. So, I had to cancel my flights and it ruined myu weekend."
Cons: "No mechanics available and had to send for some, taking 5 hours. Didn't get to destination until late at night and missed my event."
Cons: "I don't like delays..."
Cons: "Wish the seats were a bit more comfortable on frontier. And had to pay for carry ons. Will never ride frontier again."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "This is the 4th time flying United and every time I experienced a delay and disorganization after delays."
Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "on a 5,5 hour flight only drinks and no food, NOT OKEY - entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."
Pros: "I liked that I was given spacious accommodations for myself and my service animal."
Cons: "I didn't like that we then sat on the plane for 2 hours, then had to get back off. I don't really blame United Airlines for this because there was a storm. But if Kayak wants me to rate the flight I'd have to say it was bad because it didn't even occur."
Pros: "The flight attendant did the best he could knowing I was uncomfortably hot and there was nothing I could do. He gave me an extra ice cream to help :)"
Cons: "Complained to flight attendant about RIDICULOUSLY high temperature of the air craft. Flight attendants told me they had already requested the pilots turn the head down twice. The temperature of the plane made me extremely uncomfortable and unhappy."
Pros: "More spacious seats than my 12+ hour flight from tokyo to chicago."
Cons: "Need to advetise the app outside of the boarding gate."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and flight departed in time"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable, no snack variety, no entertainment"
Cons: "leg room and cabin temp was too high"
Pros: "Here's the situation- There are massive storms across the state, massive delays across the nation, and a tiny airport packed full of people. All the things needed to make a horrible flying day an even worse day for customer service. BUT the flight crew and terminal teams did an amazing job keeping things together and keeping guests happy. They communicated all the information they knew in a timely manner, and made sure to correct any connections that needed to be processed before the plan landed. Also they kept their calm as people flipped out."
Cons: "I didn't lol the size of the white planes airport. That plan could hold about 150 people at best.... There was at least 600"
Pros: "this flight was only an hour long but it was enjoyable. made it home earlier which is always great. I like having only two seats on each side rather than 3."
Cons: "as short as the flight was, there were a few disturbances. first, the two kids behind me were off the wall. it wasn't a baby crying, they had to be 5 and 7 just screaming and being so loud when their parents just laughed. at 8pm It would have been nice for a crew to quiet them down. second, there was a disturbance by a woman who had to be escorted off the plane which caused us to sit not knowing anything going on for the extra 20 minutes on the runway. I'm so glad they got her off for our safety but we were in the dark about the situation. And United, you need to up your snacks."
Cons: "cold I the cabin - leaky vent by my legs in 3D"
Cons: "You are required to pay to watch the tv. It's free with Delta."
Pros: "Easy and on time!"
Cons: "In Houston, At the gate with my ticket in hand, I was told I was not on the flight and would have to be scheduled on the next flight. The boarding pass in my hand matched the flight and time with the seat I picked out online when I purchased the ticket. Then a bad storm went through and many flights were cancelled. (Not the fault of United of course). About 9 hours later with a new boarding pass, I went to the gate to board and was told once again that I was not on that flight even though I was holding a new boarding pass!! What is going on here!? How can this happen twice to the same person, let alone happen at all??!"
