Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the crew was nice, and good movie selection"
Cons: "Vegetarian option for food"

Pros: "Great crew and good seat in Main Cabin Extra!"
Pros: "I loved the seating"
Cons: "Honestly on a 5 hour flight ✈️ power outlets would be helpful also maybe a tv so I can see where I am at"
Cons: "The aircraft was very cramped. Water and some solid items leaked onto my head from the overbin."
Cons: "Checking bags in PHF very poor. Disorganized and poorly managed. Staff needs more training and explicit direction. Kiosks should ALL be in working condition!"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"
Cons: "The flight attendant that helped passengers in the main cabin was rude, lacked empathy, and lacked resourcefulness. She argued about throwing away a drink that she poured, didn’t care to explain things to passengers when asked i. e. why charging outlets were not in service, and her tone was rude ..."
Pros: "Plane was nice and comfortable, enjoyed blanket and pillow. Cabin soft drink service was good."
Cons: "Ok movie selection, more less R rated movies to choose from would be nice. Served snack literally 20 minutes before we landed, kinda silly."

Cons: "The service was poor and not friendly. They over sold the flight and put the stress into customers. They kept the flight so cold that I had 2 blankets and still shivering. The seats are so darn tight that the people next to me didn’t fit and I had to sit at a angle for 5 hours. What is dissatisfying is that airlines will continue to treat customers without compassion. We pay for a service and should not be yelled at when you over sell a flight and demand people to check in carry on bags."
Pros: "Boarded early and landed early."
Cons: "The food, the service and it was delay"
Pros: "Staff very professional, everything else went as planned. That's all one needs."
Cons: "We had a hard time hearing (clarity of speech) announcements over the intercom at the gate & on the plains (specially when the captain spoke). Nothing life threatening, but wouldn't want to miss something important."
Pros: "I upgraded to a premium seat I was assigned a seat in the middle very uncomfortable when there were empty seats three rows ahead should not have been a problem"
Pros: "very nice crew"
Cons: "small jetcraft"
Pros: "The empty sit next to me"
Cons: "The very basic food. Having to argue to get extra water to drink when I got seriously dehidrated The limited choice in movies"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Was really poor choice of food."
Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."

Pros: "Real nice people at check in and flight crew was really nice"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, no personal entertainment, poor snack options"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Sitting next to a bunch of crying babies"
Pros: "This flight was not full, so most people on the plane had the opportunity to spread out and have an empty seat next to them. The in-flight entertainment choices were vast."
Cons: "Food quality was not as good as some of the other flights, but there was still an ample amount of food served."
Cons: "The check in"
Pros: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "Bag drop was unnecessarily slow with long processing lines. The gate area and on-boarding process was a zoo. Business Class seats (opposing design) were spartan and relatively uncomfortable. My upstairs 50B seat viewed directly into the wash room which made sleeping impossible. Food was not good. Overall, this is the weakest Business Class experience of recent memory especially for a newer wide-body aircraft."
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: "On time and easy boarding."
Cons: "I am amazed at how much people bring on board the plane with them and then those of us who only bring the limit, one small backpack are asked to place it under the seat in front of us. This is unfair and causes us to lose leg room. Monitor what people bring on board!"
Cons: "Not much offered on domestic flights."
Cons: "flight from Philly to Ithaca was late also"
Cons: "served warm orange juice and did not have ice available on jax to Dallas flight. Ran out of coffee on return flight Dallas to OKC."
Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."
Pros: "Easy access to the Laboratory, location of my seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not that friendly and do not like me asking for so much water (4 times) on a 9.5 hour flight. This was operated by American Airlines...they need to be nice and smile. I asked for a gluten-free meal which they did not have two hours later I find attendant gave me a meal from first class but someone did not eat. A little disappointed!"
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "We made is safely"
Cons: "Flight took off 2 hours late Television for my seat did not work Flight attendant forgot to serve me dinner Had to ask 3 times for dinner"
Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very professional and friendly as well"
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours by a big rainstorm. That was not the fault of American Airlines. The cabin air quality got very poor (exhaust entering from the ducts0 They eventually let us leave the flight and wait in the terminal before reboarding."
Cons: "Someone had been sick on the plane. They cleaned it up but it still had a pretty decent residual odor to bear in an hour plus long flight."
Pros: "Staff was pretty good, and while the food wasn't incredible, it wasn't bad."
Cons: "I hold the personal opinion that the headrests on transatlantic seats should be the sort that prevent one's head from falling to the side. It seemed like this was a domestic plane assigned to an international route."
Cons: "Either passengers wear a mask or not. What’s the point of making announcements regarding wearing your mask when the staff does not enforce it? Also, not sure why the Wifi went out midway through the flight. Get your act together United!"
Pros: "Small plane ,comfortable seats,"
Pros: "The food options and that we were offered drinks multiple times."
Cons: "Nothing! It was excellent"
Pros: "Emergency exit"
Cons: "Extra blankets as emergency exit is terribly cold Boarding"
Cons: "Flight to SFO landed 7 min late. Wouldn’t let us on connecting flight to MRY. We were put on a land shuttle to MRY and now I’m car sick. Horrible day!"
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "Wifi, just horrible as a transatlantic flight, it was the only option for entertainment and it wouldn’t connect as I’m sure the network hub was overloaded."
Pros: "Everything wasnt bad."
Cons: "Had seating in the very back row in 38 middle seat, was very cramped and uncomfortable, felt claustrophobic. Other than that, probably will avoid the back row from now on."
Pros: "Quick boarding, departed on time, arrived early, good cabin communication"
Cons: "This is a very cramped commuter jet, just one flight attendant to serve entire plane, she came by once for drinks but not a second time"
Pros: "Smooth. Arrived early."
Pros: "Everything was great and i hate flying"
Cons: "The plane has business section seats that face both ways...some face the front of the plane as most seats do and some face the back of the plane which seems new. I had asked when I booked the flight and again when I checked in what direction out seats faced and was assured the seats faced forward. They do not. Out seats in row 9 faced the backend of the plane and were awful."
Pros: "I didnt like anything. This airline is a disgrace."
Cons: "Your flight attendants were extremely rude. Seats are uncomfortable. Lights stayed on the entire flight (even at midnight). You played the same commercial for 2 hours straight. Restroom looks as bad as it smells."
Pros: "Very little. The crew were grumpy and barely gave any service beyond what they had to do. They grunted "Chicken or fish" and "What beverage do you want" and basically threw the food and drinks at the passengers.."
Cons: "Almost everything..."
Pros: "Spacy seats. Great entertainment. In time."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."
Pros: "crew members friendly and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "More leg room and need better snacks"
Pros: "Other airlines that don't lie to you about which airline you're purchasing tickets with."
Cons: "When I buy an apple computer and pay apple prices, I don't expect to open up the box and find a PC in there. When I bought tickets with Air Canada, I expected to fly with Air Canada, not United. I don't know how it's even legal for you to sell me one thing, have me pay for it, and then give me another. My experiences with Air Canada have been fine. My experience with United was terrible. Their check in devices freeze and don't give proper instructions or feedback, and my tray table was taped shut because it was broken. The tape looked like it was a year old. It is not ok to fix an airplane with tape. This is terrible for both of us. Now you - Air Canada - are sharing in United's PR disaster because you've effectively said buying tickets from you might just be a bait-and-switch for buying tickets with them. Upon purchasing tickets "your" customers have no way of knowing what they're going to get. I'd much rather book with an airline that sells tickets for its own flights, or at least tells customers when they're buying something else instead of lying to them."
Pros: "Seats were pretty comfortable. Very pleasant staff."
Cons: "Almost missed the flight due to border police lines being extensively long in Paris. They had to rush me through after my third request. I go to the airport 90 minutes ahead of flight time."
Cons: "The employees were verbally rude, borderline abusive. The airline was completely disorganized, changing our gate 3 times. Literally the worst airline experience I have had in years."
Cons: "Don't like being squeezed in, but it is what it is"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "No entertainment on such a long fight. Food for purchase not included, then the for purchase the system was down. My bags did not arrive , and then i had to wait 3 days in milan eith no luggage at all."
Cons: "Snack offering was caramely sugar cookie"
Pros: "The crew worked quickly and efficiently to get us all on board on time had a mechanical delay but was fixed quickly"
Cons: "The seats were not as comfortable as some of the other plane models but it was a quick flight so it didnt matter much. Also the entertainment provided didnt work on my phone luckily i had my own"
Pros: "The movies, the seats wre confortables."
Cons: "Too long to boarding, very desorganized, my seats were wringful assugned took it to long to reassign the correct seats numbers, the flight was one hour delayed, the food too expensive."
Pros: "The staff was nice and helpful. The flight was relatively smooth."
Cons: "The flight was late."
Pros: "My luggage was cheap but not cheap it was freaking awesome."
Cons: "My flight was delayed hours. You guys didnt give us any food. My family was wiiting in the airport for hours."
Cons: "Total disaster due to some snow, excessive delays"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The boarding made it so much easier for me."
Cons: "My bag was misplaced after being gate checked, it ended up going to baggage claim, not a huge inconvenience, but after all our trouble with United, it was frustrating and we were tired and not interested in waiting for our bags (which is why we took carry on only in the first place)."
Cons: "Small seats. They r making problem cause of small camera bag and the plain was half empty!"
Pros: "The food was better than I'd expected because it was a codeshared flight operated by United, so I'd got prepared for worse food )."
Cons: "My personal entertainment system just kept shutting down by itself from time to time. A attendant kept talking some of the passengers on the plane, which was a bit noisy."
Cons: "The free snacks were extremely salty. During the second leg of my trip, I chose to forego them. Other snacks were available for a cost."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lots of selection for movies."
Cons: "Drink service was so slow. Literally had to beg for drinks"
Pros: "The plane."
Cons: "Travelling with a nine week old: no add on seatbelt (as per QANTAS) for lap sleeping, paid for an extra seat we didn't realize we were buying. The food has not improved in the last decade in contrast to other airlines."
Pros: "nothing much."
Cons: "It was hot, no air conditioning We sat for 55 minutes after landing at Newark waiting for a place to deplane. I will not fly on United again!! Lion Sanford Waters"
Cons: "Hour delay that made me miss my connecting flight. Customer service agent, Theresa, at the United gate was more interested in checking her cell phone text messages & handing out $10 food vouchers than the long of people who have conflicts with connecting flights or missing events in the destination they were flying to. Every minute lost could prevent customers from obtaining another immediate or comparable flight to their destination. Customer service agent sent those who were going to have problems with their connecting flights to the United Airlines service desk, of which, there were no customer service agents at any of the four available stations. I waited 10 minutes for an agent & no one arrived. When I went back to the original line I was standing in, I was forced to go to the back of the line rather than the place I was originally standing. Therefore I waited in line an additional 20-30 minutes. Once I was served they did not have any more seats available on direct flights to Melbourne. They wanted me to fly to NY, then Sydney & then Melbourne. Additionally the customer service agent did not seem confident this flight was not going to have any hiccups. Worst of all, I had been planning this trip for months & it was ruined by United Airlines."
Pros: "Crew nice and friendly."
Cons: "Free in-flight entertainment should be offered on all flights of 2+ hours through the United app. Had a family with young kids next to me who would have benefited from it (I saw the father trying to connect to it through the app), and overall it would make the flight a much more pleasant experience. After boarding a full hour later than what was originally said, it would have been nice to kick back with a movie for the flight."
Cons: "Flight was over 3hrs delayed then once we boarded plane we sat for 4hrs while they tried to fix an engine problem. Never offered us drinks etc... Now we have deplaned and have to wait 3 1/2hrs to board next plane. NOT HAPPY, MISSING WORK & $$$$$"
Pros: "My flight was delayed by a day due to the engine problem."
Cons: "Got a voucher for a hotel that was of very poor quality. I made my own rebooking. Otherwise I probably would never leave ABQ."
Pros: "The lady helping me to get another plane was very nice because I lost it and was crying"
Cons: "The time for the connection was not enough to change gates using a bus and the connecting gate was too far away ."
Cons: "Emergency landing with no power in flightn"
Cons: "I thought I was flying with Lufthansa Airline. I paid more because it's a good airline and services... I was surprised that they must of conctract it with United Airline. It's terrible to fly for eleven hours without your little individual tv sceen to select your own movies..... United really sucks!!!!!! I wish that you guys would of said something about connecting with United..... I was very disappointed!"
Pros: "Best direct flight to Japan for the price. The crew was amazing."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment could have been better."
Cons: "At the boarding gate, there was really really mean crew operating the boarding. There was one guy on standby, was told to wait so he did but he didn't get the seat . I understand that could happen but how she spoke this guy was absolutely rude and she did say " that's not my fault! That's your fault!!" And slam the door ... When we asked her for adding miles , she did as complaining " I am here for the flight to Ommaha ." Even though she was not , she is working for United airlines , isn't it her job ??? She was like that to every customer and that presents your company's value ... When the gate was for us , she was back at the gate ...... I am so disappointed for this poor customer service. Even though if I mention here , I know nothing would change and I hope this one voice will reach to the company somehow and make some change ."
Cons: "cancelled flight. Broken plane."
Cons: "All the people in my group got our seats changed at the last minute due to an "aircraft change". It was the same configuration of seats, so why did we all get moved around? My group got broken up and one person got stuck all the way at the back near the bathrooms - both ways!!"
Pros: "no food in first class that what I get for 5hours in texas with out my O2"
Pros: "The captain kept us informed, the flight attendants were simply amazing, going above and beyond to ensure the best flight possible."
Cons: "The plane was delayed twice. The crew members at the terminal did nothing to explain why. I do know that in their world things like this happen, but in the customer's world, things like this can really mess up someone's day, so simple periodic updates as well as one genuine apology for the inconvenience would have made things a whole lot better."
