Cons: "That flight for 2.5 hrs is way to tight. An hour, hour and a half... OK. But 2.5 hrs on a packed flight was uncomfortable"

Cons: "Seat choice flexibility, but it was basic economy..."

Cons: "A full flight in the midst of a pandemic. Totally unsafe! Safety first in the air and closed space vs how many you can pack in during a pandemic. Disgraceful! I have tried to avoid AA due to how they handle flying right now , I couldn’t today and they were just as bad as I imagined. Delta was so much safer and more protective of its customers . 50-60% full by design . Fly them and learn something."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The customer service, both on the phone & in person"

Cons: "Very old cramped plane. I actually overheard the airplane say that it was tired and wanted to be replaced with one made in this millenium..."

Cons: "Seat 33A. The audio output was bad. Could not clearly hear dialog. Restarting did not help, this issue as consistent got all media programs."

Pros: "A wonderful crew!"
Cons: "Less turbulence on take-off; but I don't really think you can control such things!"

Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"

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: "leg room"
Cons: "paid for a window seat, got no window. The map on the website dictated a window and exit row. This was not the case. This flight is always late. Waiting on baggage in Midland takes 30+ minutes"

Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"

Pros: "Take offs equaled lands"
Cons: "Dirty and tied plane seat way to tiely spaced. Disinterested crew. I hate stowage"

Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."

Pros: "There was nothing to like about the way this sudden last minute cancellation was handled."
Cons: "I expected at least an offer of some kind of compensation for the inconvenience. it didn’t and hasn’t happened thus far."

Pros: "Everything was on time and had a early arrival east a great flight the crew we're friendly and all crews we're on too of there game thanks AA"

Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"

Pros: "It got cancelled and the flight company took 500 usd dollars back from me"

Pros: "Loved how nice all the staff was to us ! Super friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "All Airplanes have tiny seats, and first class is just too expensive for retired people to buy......."

Cons: "80 minute delay"

Pros: "Everything except TSA, my daughter 14, had a precheck. TSA sent her through, and made me go in separate much slower lne. She was upset and scared, which upset me."

Pros: "In flight service was good and the meal was tasty and complete. Fun entertainment."
Cons: "Rude check in staff that priortized customers that arrived too late to the airport which made us late for our flight. A customed shouldn't have to stand in line an for 90 minutes just to drop off checked bags after checking in online. Every customer should start at the back of the line. All of Ecuadorians in the Guayaquil airport for Avianca should be replaced."

Pros: "Lots of food and drinks, nice crew and pretty good experience"
Cons: "Tv screen too slow..... doesn't work that good,the plane was a little noisier at take off than usually, nothing mayor...."

Cons: "Free seats in economy class are way too squeezed for a 10 hours flight."

Pros: "Boarding process was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Do you think airline management sits around boardrooms to brainstorm ways to torture its passengers more? The seats and the leg room are ridiculous. It's gotten to much worse recently."

Pros: "Friendly crew, nice meal, relaxing flight. Really appreciated the opportunity to get the Dasani Lime sparkling water. Nice, healthy alternative to soda and such. I appreciated that loud PA system announcements weren't being made all night long during the flight. This allowed me to get truly relaxed and enjoy the flight part of the experience. Thank you."
Cons: "I flew economy so I have no complaints. The movies weren't my cup of tea, but I was exhausted and slept anyway, so it didn't matter."

Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."

Pros: "On time departures and arrivals. This domestic first leg of the flight had fairly good leg room and seat width."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, great crew, lots of food & drink options, great screens with excellent selection of movies & games."
Cons: "Long flight. We did not realize that we needed to claim baggage and then re-check it at Japan Airlines for a domestic flight. Airport personnel were understanding and helpful, so no crisis."

Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."

Pros: "New aircraft, very comfortable"
Cons: "The Flight Attendants were HORRIBLE. They were rude and dismissive to all passengers, One in particular (Suzette) actually made a passenger sitting next to me cry. I was embarrassed to be an American. It was a nightmare of a flight because of the flight attendants."

Cons: "Worst seats ever. Very delayed. No entertainment"

Pros: "Every single crew member was extremely helpful and friendly. Also the leg room was acceptable compared to similar airlines. Comfortable seats and smooth flight. We were even 20 minutes early to BCN!"
Cons: "The plane was very old and the entertainment was okay... That's if your screen worked, which mine did not. An 8 hour flight without entertainment is not the best scenario. Also, I know it wasn't just my screen that wasn't working."

Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline."

Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"

Pros: "We arrived safe. Although 1 1/2 hours late because of weather Nothing else was good."
Cons: "The plane has no space. No food. No entertainment It's let's crame as many people in the space. There Seats don't recline. And it's very uncomfortable. You Changed planes on us after we had assigned seats So we weren't in the seats we wanted. Poor customer Service on kayak part."

Pros: "The selection of movies was fantastic and the blanket and pillow that was provided was comfortable."
Cons: "The food was okay."

Pros: "The movie selection and how often we were given beverages."
Cons: "I was selected for a random inspection. I was pulled aside and went through a separate check in process. I completed everything I was instructed to do and as I'm boarding, I'm pulled aside and told I needed to go back to pre clearance because someone forgot to punch a hole in my boarding pass. The stewardess and j had to run all the way back to security so I could go through the whole process again. I delayed the flight and everyone was upset. It was completely unnecessary. Simply because one employee didn't do their job, I delayed a transatlantic flight to Chicago. Best part, I arrived at the airport four hours before my flight. Also, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. And I was separated from my traveling companion for this entire process. Had I missed the flight, she would never have known."

Cons: "Baggage charge. I always try and fly with southwest if possible no baggage fee and they have an overall better vibe for the flyers"

Cons: "Seat reassignment"

Pros: "On my return I had my own seat! Not nearly as cramped. Had soda and pretzels. The air magazine was latest issue! The attended was nice."
Cons: "The seats needed to be shampood."

Pros: "The crew was responsive and very friendly."

Pros: "Nice & quick! Made me feel safe even though it was icy!"
Cons: "Nothing really."

Cons: "Great airline"

Pros: "Boarding, no surprises, flight: comfortable take off, flight, landing, coffee, on-time, carry-on baggage"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work at all (had it connected but it was too slow)"

Pros: "Aircrew great along with gate agents."
Cons: "First class flying is gone. No lounge access in the US. No meal (boarding at 1720 and arriving 2100) Beverage service the same in front as in back. Need to go back to Asia to get what you pay for."

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Not the airline’s fault. Bumpy ride."

Pros: "Flight crew was excellent and went over and above to help us"
Cons: "We were told due to the delay that CSR ‘s would help us with making our flights. Upon arrival no csr. Plane was still at terminal. Had to make 2 calls to a supervisor before csr’s Would do their job and get us boarded. Finally they came to their senses."

Pros: "Everything was as expected including on time, great service and smooth ride arriving a little early."

Cons: "Rebooking through united was a nightmare"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and worked well together."
Cons: "Small delay before takeoff."

Pros: "Landed safely. The stewardess was very nice and engaging."
Cons: "My plane took off late from Wichita, and missed departure to LA in Denver by five minutes. Despite their being several of us, they didn't hold the plane. It's 7:39 before I'm guaranteed a make up flight because I'm told by customer service that united flies fewer flights during holidays periods despite being the busiest season of the year. United did nothing to make up for the night with family they have taken from me on vacation."

Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination in the end and that my overhead reading light worked."
Cons: "The entertainment system was useless. Not only did tapping the screen take a million taps to register one tap, the audio didn’t work at all. The seat next to me even had something lodged into the audio jack."

Pros: "Staff were very polite and courteous. Friendly and kind. The flight was on time and smooth. I really enjoyed my time and the stewardesses were awesome."
Cons: "I really don't have any response to this question. I didn't have any food or entertainment due to my choice so I really appreciate the crews overall performance."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The flights were late and annoying"

Pros: "Nice customer service"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5hrs because there was no plane available to take us to our designation. Only flown united 2 other times and similar things happened on those flights as well. Definitly won't be booking with united again"

Pros: "Pleasant staff. All smiles and very agreeable at the gate and checkin, but..."
Cons: "This new unassigned seat fare that offers the "cheapest rate" also doesn't allow a checked bag. What this means is that you have to do two separate searches to compare the basic economy price and the upgraded economy to see if the difference is less than a checked bag. It makes the booking process unecessarily complicated, so much so that I'm just going to exculde United from the list of airlines when I do a search on one of the aggregators"

Cons: "5 hours delayed"

Pros: "The crew was awesome!!!! You did a great job"

Pros: "The flight was fine. No issues at all"
Cons: "My experience would be fine except when I went through security and they checked my luggage, they opened my suitcase in front of everyone and riffled through my clothes out in the open. I don't care that they needed to go through my bag, I care that there was no concern for privacy."

Cons: "My experience on this flight was not good. The crew was not really quite friendly in my opinion. Then my luggage did not arrive with me in the same flight. When it eventually showed up the next day it was damaged. The Agent at the counter was very unfriendly and unhelpful- he essentially said "if you read the fine print on your ticket purchase, you'll see that external damages are not covered by any airlines ". Sad!"

Pros: "Enjoyed be seats & actually had enough leg room even w a middle seat. Very pleasant attendant...only had enough tea for a half cup.....came back w full cup AFTER service cart left aisle"

Pros: "Cost my son and I one whole day getting back home. Canceled flight first scheduled day, canceled flight next day, 4 hr layover etc. etc. etc. Over 20 hrs to get from Shreveport to Bakersfield CA. Darn glad I left my car at the airport as we got there at 2:30 in the morning. F. B."

Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"

Pros: "It was without any trouble and comfortable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "I had a comfortable flight it was on time the people were congenial everything was good."
Cons: "Kayak did not notify me 24 hours in advance for my flight itinerary. I was a little disappointed in this."

Pros: "Everyone was great helped me make my flight on time and great service."

Cons: "Flight attendant, LaToya, was the rudest I've ever encountered on United. Didn't greet anyone, basically slammed drinks down on the tray tables, didn't say goodbye to us when departing, and was overall very unpleasant. Could tell she didn't want to be there."

Cons: "United Express (Skywest Airlines in the SFO area) is simply unreliable. This time the flight was 3 hours late. With United Express (Skywest), the only thing you can count on are cancellations and delays."

Pros: "I liked the takeoff it was entertaining and fun also I liked the flight crew where every 30 min they would check on us and bring us water and snacks."

Pros: "Everything smooth and on time."

Pros: "I liked how new and clean the plane was, and how orderly all aspects of the flight were."
Cons: "It has always seem really counterproductive to load the front of the plane first. All five of us said the same thing. Really dumb, so what....... if we were to have paid more money for first class. It would be faster. No need to wait for someone to get their bag in the overhead for so long."

Cons: "Late, waited for a plane while numerous flights to Ontario and Sacramento came and went. Unacceptable."

Pros: "Free entertainment on your own devices"
Cons: "We left late, so even though I had rushed to catch my connection, we still sat in the plane for half an hour. Is it possible to build in more time between connecting flights? Which luckily was also late. Too bad people now have to pay for food."

Cons: "Ac didn't work on ground. Not tall enough."

Pros: "The crew kept us up to date on the ATC delay."
Cons: "Weather in the DEN area and Eastern Colorado generated a ground stop in DEN delaying our departure from ICT for about 2 hours. Even with the overall delay in DEN my SMF flight was long gone putting me on a late flight into SMF. This of course lead to a short night's rest...just another day of travel on the airlines."

Pros: "It's always worth the extra money to fly United! I love this airline."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "Too warm in flight. Did not run Ac enough."

Pros: "The crew both ways were professional and hard working."
Cons: "The flight was a code share with United. Seats were ridiculously cramped in economy. Perhaps this is the new normal--I haven't flown internationally in a while. Food was just ok. I was disappointed that I was not flying Air New Zealand since that was part of the reason I booked this flight."

Cons: "United airlines plane from SLC to SFO departed 45 minutes late due to maintenance issue. Then the connecting flight from SFO to Bakersfield left 10 minutes early, thus resulting in a small group missing the connection. Spent Father's Day in the airport for 10+ hours to get on the last flight out of SFO to Bakersfield. Customer service was unhelpful and rude until they found out that the issue was at the fault of united Airlines and not external circumstances."

Pros: "The plane was clean. Boarding was great at Wichita."
Cons: "All flights should have free wifi and power hookups. Greyhound does this, why shouldn't united."

Pros: "Rate and nice leg space seats"
Cons: "No entertainment without charge,not good,at least few Chanel's should be free"

Cons: "Arrived SIX hours late, did have luggage which was nice."

Pros: "There was nothing to like about this constantly delayed flight with rude attendants at the gate. I will not be flying United again."
Cons: "Everything! Our flight started with a thirty minute delay which was mentioned after we were asked to stand and prepare to board. The flight continued to be pushed out an hour every hour with no reason as to why. Our gate changed and we were told to line up for boarding, then we had another delay. The frustrating part was being told to line up to board only to see another delay. In total, the flight was delayed over four hours, being asked to prepare to board three times and with one gate change. This was not even the worst part, our new plane did not have WiFi, which was promised when booking. Needless to say, the entertainment was bleak. The icing on this flight from hell was when we hit turbulence and two bottles of wine spilt on another passenger and all over the floor. I understand that this happens, but none of the flight attendants attempted to clean up the wine and all the passengers where forced to smell cheap red wine for the remaining eight hours of the flight. I regret to claim that I will not fly United ever again."

Pros: "went smoothly"
Cons: "lack of free peanuts"

Pros: "Everyone at the Wichita airport were very friendly - especially the TSA personnel. Everything moved quickly and efficiently. Plus the airport itself is so beautiful and easy to get around in. Took us less than 30 minutes from parking in shuttle parking lot to going through security to getting to our gate!"

Cons: "waiting for wheelchairs."

Pros: "Was a very good service; thanks to all"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed. I was traveling with a baby and there was no gate agent anywhere to be found to help us get re-routed after the delay caused us to miss our connection. Terrible experience with United."

Pros: "ease of ordering by phone"
