Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "Crew was nice and comfort was okay."
Cons: "There was no internet most of the flight it only worked for the first 20-30 minutes of the flight then they tried resetting it but it didn’t work for the rest of the flight."

Pros: "Seats seem to get smaller but overall a good experience"
Cons: "Seat room"

Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "boarding delay, we must arrived at 13:48hrs, but our flight return to miami due to problems in navigation, we have to await at airport and arrived at Guatemala at 18:30hrs."

Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."

Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft on a hot summer day is critical. Especially on a 2 hours delay on the tarmac!"

Cons: "There was a delay on the departure"

Pros: "Seat was okay. Crew was definitely amazing."
Cons: "I wish the seats were even just an inch wider and more legroom for really tall people like myself."

Pros: "The crew was fine"
Cons: "The worst international flight I’ve been on in years. No seating room. The movie was shown on tiny screens in the center aisle (which I didn’t think existed anymore) and was barely audible and tuned in and out. The plane also lacked air conditioning. A truly awful experience."

Pros: "The crew and plane was great"
Cons: "The first flight was delayed causing me to miss my second flight and having to spend an extra night at my layover location but the airline accommodated me accordingly with a room and flight the next morning Dallas airport was a shambles not being helpful at all with the people who were delayed"

Pros: "I loved everything"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Two hours late. Poor gate communication. Laggy app updates."

Pros: "Clean airplane."
Cons: "Flight staff, food on board"

Cons: "In a period of 20 minutes in the hour before boarding there were three gate changes. The last one was a change of terminal and gate. You have been doing this for years and you should know how to do this already."

Cons: "Food was payable so should not even be a criteria here We had to collect our luggage coming from portugal to check them in Again in Miami. Really a burden. After 20 hours flying this was really annoying. Again Iberia saving money at the cost of clients"

Cons: "Jammed plane. At origin we were asked to check carry on at the gate to save overhead space. Bags never made the plane. We had our stubs but when we arrived at destination or at layover none was able to help. Bag tags had been removed at origin and bags were opened to determine who they belonged to. Plus wheelchair had armrest broken off."

Pros: "Nothing special."

Pros: "The crew aboard the plane was very friendly"
Cons: "Food was bad. The gate personnel was incredibly rude"

Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Cons: "-"

Cons: "British Airways/American Airlines lost/delayed luggage again! Then send an email in the middle of night with a link to schedule home delivery of the luggage that was valid for 4 hours only. It is clearly an attempt to cheat out of their responsibility of home delivery of the luggage that was delayed the second time. Poor, poor service by American Airlines."

Pros: "The plane departed and arrived as scheduled. Flight attendants weee courteous and responsive."
Cons: "I was cramped in Seat B."

Cons: "inadequate ventilation"

Cons: "Did not dislike anything on this trip."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."

Pros: "Nice crew even though the plain was late and we had to wait for ramp to come."
Cons: "It was hot and very little space. Poor choice of snack."

Pros: "AA staff in Guatemala are great, everything else about AA is bellow any other airline, definitely the worst airline."
Cons: "AA is the worst airline in everything, but worst of all is the AA staff attitude in Miami airport, AA staff in Guatemala are great."

Pros: "Nothing, American Airlines is the worst major airline now."
Cons: "The staff in Miami Airport is really bad, worst attitude I have seen, old planes, not comfortable, definetly the worst major airline now."

Pros: "On time take off"

Pros: "The guy in the middle seat left and never came back. Smooth flight. Good crew. Got both pretzels and cookies, as well as 2 cups of ice, with no problem."
Cons: "Entertainment system had some quirks. I choose my flights in an attempt to make sure I can watch a movie during the flight, so that's important to me. This one stopped once in the middle of the movie, but worked one I started it again. Didn't have buttons for fast forward or rewind, so had to guess on the timeline when I wanted to see something I missed. Then the flight map kept resetting to a mode other than what I wanted. I know these are first world problems, and they in no way affected the safety of the flight, but I expect more."

Cons: "No power outlets. A bag of chips in 1st class is pretty weak. Compared to Europe flights we can from, aircraft felt like 1960's Aeroflot."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No leg room, hot plane, airline staff is friendly but clearly bored."

Pros: "It was on time & staff were pleasant & effective"

Pros: "On time, no issues, friendly and professional staff."

Pros: "The plane was really nice."
Cons: "The food was not good."

Pros: "Not much. Boarding was disorganized. Plane was freezing and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Crew was excellent seat was as usual"
Cons: "Something to Fill your tome a little more"

Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."

Pros: "Avaiability"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and courteous."

Pros: "Cost"
Cons: "Aircon was too cool"

Pros: "empty"
Cons: "food"

Cons: "My baggage was left in Houston"

Pros: "Good. Thank You united airlines.!! Excellent 10.00"

Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."

Pros: "My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee."
Cons: "The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers."

Pros: "The arrive time was excellent. Courtesy and smile faces of the Crew in Business Class"
Cons: "The boarding process was ugly, in disorder and it is a big lie you have with your business class ticket the priority option. The food was very poor. I had to avoid continue eating because I felt the food was not fresh."

Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"

Pros: "Cost On time"
Cons: "Seats in the last row."

Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."

Pros: "I like that it was through United Airline, which I’m a member of so I got to board a littler earlier"
Cons: "The food could have been better. Everything had cheese which I don’t eat."

Pros: "The cabin crew were very kind and helpful, always smiling and happy to be of service."
Cons: "It wasn't Air New Zealand, but operated by United Airlines. The plane was uncomfortable, and the entertainment system seemed clunky, unintuitive and outdated. The selection of entertainment, poor in quality, I thought. There were lost of things to watch, but a lot of it was of poor quality. The food was acceptable, but again, it felt like it was done on-the-cheap, and I was eating airline food a la 20 years ago."

Pros: "The flight was quite smooth and left virtually on time. Boarding was simple and fast and the economy plus seats were extremely comfortable."
Cons: "The food was quite poor. United can learn a thing or two about food by flying Cathay Pacific to see what decent airline food is like. As far as entertainment is concerned, while United had a great movie selection the method of controlling the playback was quite poor. Pausing the movie would actually make it stop on several occasions."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They don’t care about their passengers one bit"

Cons: "Seats are really narrow and hard. They don’t recline much."

Pros: "The service at the automated counter was very good"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "The aircraft was spacious and well appointed. The crew MEL to LAX were very friendly and offered food and beverages at regular intervals, and walked the aisles regularly in case the passengers needed anything..."
Cons: "On the LAX to MEL return flight, the crew were very unfriendly and only did the bare minimum, and basically just asked 'chicken or fish" and "what beverage do you want", then almost threw the food and drinks at the passengers. The obviously don't enjoy their job very much."

Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No snack or drink was offered."

Cons: "As common as this might be, I think 4 hours delay is the worst advertising for an airline. I completely understand things can happen but, what would happen if I show up 4 hours late? will you be ok with that. We gotta be fair. I think passengers deserve a compensation for this"

Pros: "tsa pre"

Cons: "My flight was overbooked could fly out until the next day"

Cons: "Booked on flight next day but much less convenient than original direct flight."

Pros: "Quiet flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They charge de luggage, didnt gave anything to eat, the luggage in orlando came like 2 hours late. The flight back from Houston was cancelled with no reason, they overbooked the flight.. and worst of all the only offer us a $10 disccount in a cheap hotel.. no food nothing"

Pros: "Awesome Illy coffee and stroopwaffel cookie for my flight to Guatemala for my first medical mission trip on a snowy cold morning was a welcome snack. It was so much better than the snack mix or nut packs that you usually get."

Pros: "Schedule"
Cons: "My bag didn't came with came, it was a direct flying. The air conditioned was too cold"

Cons: "Not a crew or airline issue, but strong winds made for three attempted landings."

Pros: "Pretty basic but no complaints"
Cons: "Basic but no complaints. Why don't you have music and more movie selection of recent movies ...?"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had valid tickets bought months ago, but no assigned seats. Only way to make sure I had seats was to upgrade....bush league. Be loyal to the people that plan ahead and purchase tickets on your airline and actually assign seats there and then."

Pros: "Nothing stood out except it was a new plane."
Cons: "Seating space. Where they could take an inch they took 2 or 3. First time I've ever had to get up on an airplane and walk down the Isles and stretch. They gonna learn bait and switch is gonna cost them in long run."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful, food was ok."
Cons: "It is uncomfortable, you can´t select a decent seat and there´s no entertainment, you hae to pay for it. There's suppose to be an option with mobile devices but when you make the ticket purchase it only says that entertainment is included in longflights and it is not. I paid for the entertrainment system but you have only some options and the movies start according to their own schedule so you can't really pick what you want to watch. And the directv remotes are not set in a good place, the are in the arm rest, so everytime the person next to you moves the wrong way they change your channel or turn the volume down or something else. For such an expensive and long flight the tiny space between chairs and entertainment lack is unacceptable."

Pros: "The Dreamliner is a very nice plane to fly on. Crew was friendly overall. Food was average. Entertainment was good. Blankets were too thin for a 14+ hour flight. I would fly this particular flight again though. Price was the best when I booked it."

Pros: "Didn't have to pay for in-flight entertainment. Plane boarding and exiting was smooth. No delays. Plenty of overhead baggage space."
Cons: "Stuff was not all that pleasant, seemed irritated at everyone, seats promote terrible posture, especially for anyone over 5' 7" it seems."

Pros: "Crew was very good. Food was ok; need to anticipate the more popular choices so there's enough to go around."
Cons: "New Dreamliner has added more business seats resulting in loss of storage space as well as space for your feet when fully reclined."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It was oversold so they booked another flight on American that still hasn't even left Dallas! Should have arrived by now."

Pros: "They definitely had more viewing choices in their entertainment than anyone could watch."
Cons: "The two big complaints are the food which was quite pathetic for a 14 hour flight - half of a cold sandwich and one cookie!!! Really?? They need to fly their competition and see how it should be done! The biggest complaint of all is their slight of hand baggage charges. If they're going to partner with another airline, they need some communication and agreement about pricing and allowances. Even though we are United Club members and credit card holders, we were charged nearly $400 to bring our luggage home, after paying just $30., yes, thirty, on Air New Zealand to take two extra bags! United's own overseas policy allows two bags, but they charged us anyway on return because we came on an airline that only allows one even though we paid ANZ to bring extra. Extremely illogical."

Cons: "There was a grumpy mail air host. Vegetarian option was offered to everyone and hence none left for reminder of journey"

Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"

Pros: "On time. Organize boarding"

Pros: "Friendly staff, great service."
Cons: "The boarding for handicap is not good,should be the first one on the plane.."

Pros: "Kindness of crew"
Cons: "Flights were delayed, no entertainment... Only pay-per view... No free food..."

Pros: "Things were going well until the pilot had us get off the plane."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. United couldn't get me out until Sunday. So I rented a car and drove down instead."

Pros: "The crew. The cheese plate."
Cons: "The TV kept going off. No news channels available."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They didn't event get drinks out to the whole cabin from Newark to Boston. Paying for Internet was ridiculous for all the other fees I had to pay. There was NOTHING to o on the plane at all with out paying for it."

Pros: "Free movies and TV shows between Newark and Houston"
Cons: "That the first checked bag is not complimentary."
