Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "We boarded on time then Pilot announced that they were working in the plane so we sat at the gate 90 minutes with no air conditioning. I would have much preferred to have been in terminal while waiting for maintenance to repair aircraft"

Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."

Pros: "Very nice crew."

Cons: "Full plane with no Main Cabin Extra seats left over = painful flight for someone over 6 feet."

Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "Perfect!"

Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"

Pros: "Great crew. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "No snack options. No individual screens on an international flight!"

Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."

Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."

Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."
Cons: "The crew on the way to Sydney was a little more present. There was always someone milling in the galley between the business class and premium economy cabin. The crew returning came through the cabin often and were attentive if you asked for them but you had to seek them out."

Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."

Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."

Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."

Pros: "Arrived early, friendly crew, good exit row seat."

Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"

Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."

Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."

Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."

Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."

Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."

Pros: "Streaming entertainment with great choices Not too crowded so got my upgrade"
Cons: "Food was disgusting... bland cheese lasagna or small wet noodle salad with piece of chicken. This menu has been going for years! Old B757 No sparkling water but 75 variations of Coca Cola"

Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."

Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."

Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."

Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."

Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."

Pros: "Boarding was seamless."
Cons: "Food choices were horrible as was the food quality. Especially for an international flight. AA should be embarrassed that this is the level by which they operate. Entertainment systems were faulty. Many around me had to be restarted. And crew seemed tired and irritated. Willing to overlook the chairs that barely reclined but with everything else operating at a poor level, it was just the icing on the cake."

Pros: "Overall, it was a decent flight. Tucked way in the back, but no major issues."
Cons: "One flight attendant spent the majority of the flight flirting with the guy behind me. Another had a voice so loud that I could hear him through my earplugs and Bose headphones while trying to sleep on the overnight flight. I also don't like that I booked with Qantas and ended up on an American flight."

Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."

Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."

Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"

Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."

Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."

Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."

Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They didnt tell us that emergency seats do not recling"

Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."

Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."

Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."

Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"

Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"

Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."

Pros: "The people were amazing. They were the sweetest people and were so eger to learn. I have never been so neverous. We experienced a place where I need to help the ppl of the island and hopefully make the experience better. Fijians are so generous and amazing I will be back"

Pros: "Flight was safe and early then estimates timd landing"
Cons: "Meal is not enough for older people (my mom over 60y) then i think that is not enough to adults too Meal is not good tatste like before when fly with quatas only No appetizer like before too fly with quatas we can eat 6 - 8 times include snack"

Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"

Pros: "The crew and the service was very good."
Cons: "Food could have been slightly better but can’t complain."

Pros: "Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew was very grumpy and not accommodating to families (ours and others). No wifi or outlets."

Cons: "Additional price for baggage , plus 8$ for a crapy meal in airplane"

Cons: "Free WiFi kn the plane was hardly working even over US mainland, before it list connection with outside internet over ocean. But it is something I do not care much about."

Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."

Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"

Pros: "Excellent. On time."

Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."

Cons: "When to Newark airport to check in, crew were very disorganized and very rude. Nobody was willing to help us and everybody tried to avoid people who looked like they needed help. Worst airport ever."

Cons: "The boarding process."

Pros: "Plane felt spacious and wifi entertainment was great using the United App."

Pros: "Pre-selected seats and in flight WiFi/entertainment"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Staff did a great job communicating about turbulent situations & delaying services"

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"

Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."

Pros: "I ordered a special meal and it was delicious! Because I have dietary concerns, I often have to order a special meal. Usually, I find that the alternatives meals are second thoughts and thus can be rather tasteless. I was very thankful for my meal."
Cons: "The plane was so tiny we were packed in it like sardines. I am a rather small person (barely 5 feet tall) and usually have no complaints about space on a flight but even my knees hit the back of the seat in front of me."

Pros: "I liked the flight when I thought it was going to happen."
Cons: "That the plane never took off I will never use united again"

Pros: "Ample leg room, not just meat"
Cons: "Would like to purchase everything at beginning, keeps surprise out of the cost. Seems like i could not get my sests."

Cons: "Crew was not very accommodating. Seemed more interested in sleeping then providing service to passengers. Economy plus seats not that comfortable. Flight delayed and baggage took forever."

Pros: "Best united flight I've been on in a very long time!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The crew when boarding was very rude, my ticket said ask an agent for an assigned seat and the three people from delta I spoke with were very rude and the first two completely treated me like I was nothing but a bother for asking for assistance. The third lady just said it was overbooked I didn't have a seat she was busy with other stuff and would deal with me later to listen to for my name to call. Not impressed with deltas service at the airport. The flight crew was very nice."

Cons: "Couldn't get direct tv yo work"

Pros: "I liked that the crew was nice and caring."
Cons: "I didn't like the take off or landing."

Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."

Cons: "We reserved wheelchair assistance prior to the flight. We had to wait an extended amount of time to actually get the wheelchair assistance with 5 kids 7 and under. Due to the wait we almost missed our flight, we were literally the last to board the plane. We were hoping to grab some breakfast for the kids as we had a long flight and did not have time to do so because of this delay. This is why we called ahead to reserve the wheelchair. The people checking in did not seem to care about the delay and only told us to be patient. Sad, unfortunate experience with accessibility issues."

Pros: "Everything was pleasant."

Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."

Pros: "Food in the airplane and the quickness of the arrival."
Cons: "They left us at the gate waiting for a long time without an assigned seat. They didn't announce boarding time, we were waiting for so long and the crew saw us sitting down and didn't call us. The flight almost left us. The lady at the airport was extremely rude, I asked her her name and she refused to give it to us. The delay was absurd."

Pros: "The airplane crew"
Cons: "They left us waiting for hours at the gate without assigning us a seat. When I finally made the line for the third time, the rude lady gave us a seat. Then they didn't call for by groups and we were about to be left on boarding time."

Cons: "3 hour delay."

Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"

Pros: "I didn't fly.I bought the ticket for my son. He had no complaints. You should ask in your questionnaire if the booked flight was for self or someone else."

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."

Cons: "Ko"

Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."

Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."

Cons: "Lack of leg room"

Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"

Pros: "Overall experience was very good"
Cons: "Meals on flight"

Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."

Pros: "They got me there"
Cons: "late which made me run to my next flight which was quite a hike"

Pros: "Not much, although I was flying First Class, I waited 4 1/2 hours in a wheelchair at the gate, because of a delay. I believe I could've spent that time in the United Lounge, but noone offered to take me there."

Pros: "Everything , great service , very attentive , smooth flight ."

Pros: "Two out of three pieces of luggage lost. You fall out of love after that. No matter what they do."

Pros: "Michael Reeves was helpful"
Cons: "The lack of communication to tell us why were delayed. No one told us about the flight being cancelled. We had 3 gate changes, told the flight was coming even though it never left its previous airport. Had to call and switch myself to another flight to get out of Okc."

Pros: "The flight was on time."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and caring"
Cons: "MY SEAT WAS CHANGED WITHOUT EVEN ASKING ME The flight was 3 hrs delayed There was crying babies on board so I couldn't even get some rest"

Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
