Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Be on time"

Pros: "The crew was great. Flight attendant worked really hard to keep people moving and comfortable and safe. Pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The plane is a bit older and they need to update their fleet. Boarding process needs to start sooner. Not sure what is ... Took forever for them to board."

Pros: "My wife and I chose premium economy for the long flight from L.A. to Sydney. I believe it was well worth paying for the differential level of service."

Pros: "Seats weren't too uncomfortable, and the crew was friendly."

Cons: "We stayed one hour in the plane without any reason"

Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"

Cons: "Crew very good"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No internet available on the flight. Boardng was a long process."

Pros: "Good plane with excellent crew."
Cons: "Bulkhead seat in Main Cabin Extra was a nightmare. One has to be in cirque du soleil to navigate through breakfast in the extra small tray."

Pros: "the movies selection was quite nice"
Cons: "I have to run to get to my connection flight"

Pros: "Snack service was the quickest I have seen in a while.Very smooth landing."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Baggage took 40+ mins unacceptable"

Pros: "Better-than-expected legroom and comfort. Plane was clean, well kept. Much newer aircraft, so the enhanced entertainment features were great!"
Cons: "Poor boarding experience due to long line and plane capacity. Felt bombarded by American Airlines marketing schemes for their airline credit card."

Pros: "The premium economy service was well worth the extra money. The crew was attentive but not annoying on an overnight service. The food was much better than other long haul internationals. And we arrived rested ready to see the city"
Cons: "Again boarding was just a mush of people. American keeps revising the boarding process but does little to make it actually efficient and orderly. The grouping should have made things better but gate agents don’t consistently reinforce the policy so passengers are all lax."

Pros: "The airplane is new"
Cons: "The crew was terrible, so rude, really I don’t understand why there are like that. Is like asking a favor for everything . The seat are to short of space and uncorfortable"

Pros: "The check in agent was a complete &$@?(. I had luggage and asked if I there was a counter I could just go to. I was told no. After figuring out self check in at 5 am I had to tag my own bags then see her at the counter and reshow all my id etc. it would have been much easier to skip the self check in as o has asked. But that’s what I get for getting an American Airlines codeshare."
Cons: "American Airlines service was horrible, both on the ground and in the air."

Pros: "The food and seat back entertainment were great, as well as the staff"
Cons: "Legroom was borderline inhumane, as a 5'10"adult I don't think it's too crazy to ask for a little more space on a 12+ hour flight. Good luck sleeping"

Pros: "Staff was great!"
Cons: "Seats were really uncomfortable up and reclined. Overhead baggage was full by the time I boarded and there was no enforcement of the carry-on baggage sizes... This needs to be addressed and contributed to our lack of comfort, noting this was the last leg of an 18 hour journey. My body still hurts today after a good nights sleep."

Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Quick boarding and punctuality at departure"
Cons: "Plane was not confortable"

Pros: "It was quick and easy."

Pros: "Nice staff, great accommodations"
Cons: "Uncomfortable, very hard to sleep."

Pros: "Ss"
Cons: "Sd"

Pros: "Narrow aisle and seating. Attendant looking at his phone the entire time we were getting ready to take off as well during taxiing and takeoff. Unbelievable!"

Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."

Pros: "Free upgrade to domestic first class was awesome."
Cons: "Food was meh."

Pros: "American airline flight to Paris was great"

Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."

Pros: "Spacious seats, excellent service and the food was great for an aeroplane meal. Lots of bathrooms and I was always able to access food and water."
Cons: "They still use the dual port for headphones for the entertainment system so you are unable to use your own headphones. I didn't watch anything because of this."

Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"

Pros: "It was a reminder again why I never fly United"

Pros: "only the low fare; which wasn't worth the experience we endured. i do not plan to use them again!"
Cons: "that was much too long a flight to be to be put through such an inferior"

Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"

Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."

Pros: "No food served. Late take off. Seats cramped. Forced to carry on bags, then asked to check for free, if they don't fit. That forces everyone to fight to get on the plane, to get the best place for their luggage. Why not remove the $25 fee on the checking the first bag?"

Pros: "Once seated flight was pleasant & arrived to our destination 20 min early."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been more attentive to boarding customers. They were serving drinks to first class, talking in the aisles, did not move when you were trying to get in your seat. Too much commotion going on while boarding and it became frustrating."

Pros: "Everything was nice and comfy"
Cons: "Nothing everything is perfect"

Cons: "Always delayed"

Pros: "All fly attendants. DId a very good job"
Cons: "The little flat tv was not working properly. The plain is too old."

Pros: "Excellent customer service. Good food."
Cons: "Didn't realize that codeshare meant operation by another airline, so we waited in line to up at the wrong counter, in the wrong terminal and then had to schlep our baggage to the right one. Good thing we were early."

Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding was smooth and on time."
Cons: "By no fault of the crew, the flight was delayed by an hour and a half due to conditions at LAX. I wish there was a charger or usb port to charge my phone. After the long delay on the Tarmac and many calls updating my family about the delay, I had drained most of the battery from my phone and had barely enough upon arrival."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "That the flight from Nashville to LA was delayed then cancelled due to maintenance issues and then my follow up flight to Dallas was delayed so I couldn't make the connecting flight from Dallas to LA, leaving me stuck in Dallas Fort Worth, to spend the night till a morning flight. Making me miss my first day on a new job!"

Pros: "Flight was on time, flight was good. Overall I was very happy with the overall fight experience."

Pros: "I liked the flight, the cabin crew was great, and the pilot nailed their landing."
Cons: "The big one is that when we tried to check in with Qantas, we were informed that we needed to check in with American Airlines and could not check in. Had we not been to the airport 2.5 hours early, we would have had a great shot at missing our flight because of this.As it was, we only had 15 extra minutes from when we got to the gate from when we boarded. Even this email you just sent to me said "rate your Qantas Flight", not rate your American Airlines flight coshared by Qantas. The other big gripe is that we sat on the tarmac for way longer than I would have expected. LAX Sucks."

Cons: "I thought I booked a QANTAS flight but I was thrown on a very terrible American Airlines flight. Would not recommend."

Pros: "Nothing much. Really poor quality headphones and that too the crew had hard time giving!! I felt they were very rude every time we asked for something (including water!!)"
Cons: "Everything!! They don't have Asian vegetarian meal?? It's all vegan?? Bread roll felt really hard and person behind me asked for butter/margarine and reply was very rude "we don't have any extras" so I didn't even bother asking!!"

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Diversity training"

Pros: "The flt was not full, so I was on row 42 of 43, in a two seat block with no one near. Who wouldn't like that! The seat was very comfortable, so I could stand to be in it for a long time. It did not have a footrest that I could find, but I didn't ask about it."
Cons: "Typical of American, passengers are not allowed to stand for long periods. I was initially very disappointed that it was not a Qantas flt. And had it been full, it would have been very unpleasant. I fly with American as little as possible. The 777-300 does not have the area in the back where a few can stand, but in this case, with all the room, it wasn't necessary. I was standing for just a minute, and was told to move on. That's American for you."

Pros: "Very organized and helpful. I felt safe."
Cons: "Different types of snack. Nothing serious to complain about."

Pros: "GREAT SEATS AND SERVICE"
Cons: "other than free flights, nothing"

Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the pilot decided to (after the doors were closed and ready to go) unload and reload cargo and board more people. So based on their decision, we were even further delayed and subsequently missed our connection in sydney. United has offered no compensation either for our change fee in sydney nor for the stress they added to our vacation - on a Christmas flight nonetheless!"

Pros: "The seats were fine and the plane was in good shape."
Cons: "The food is mediocre - everything has meat in it and they use tons of plastic. Also, the plane was late getting to the gate. This wouldn’t have been an issue had the pilot not decided to off board and then re onboard cargo (the commercial stuff they get paid to carry). This took about 20 minutes and then after the winds changed, he decided he could load more passengers. So despite having the doors locked and getting ready to leave the gate, they opened the doors up again and boarded more people for the next 40 minutes. So they chose to make a delayed flight even more delayed (on Christmas Eve). So we inevitably missed our connection in sydney and had to pay a change fee since it’s a different airline. Thanks for the Christmas gift United - you always know how to disappoint your passengers."

Cons: "Length"

Cons: "We had a 45 minute maintenance delay. After, there was a medical emergency (NOT the crew's fault) leading to an additional1.5 hr delay. I didn't appreciate how much the crew shared about the patient's status over the intercoms--felt like a violation. There were also numerous long comms throughout th"

Cons: "Changed gates 4 times and walked all over the C terminal. Waited for 2 hours on the plane at the jetway for the captain to arrive (with no water). Finally offered 1 small cup of water and 1 bag of pretzels (at 8pm)."

Pros: "Seat cushions ok, but it was cramped."
Cons: "Entertainment console very poor touch screen."

Pros: "Great crew! My husband had a cold, so he wore a mask. One flight attendant was so helpful, bringing him hot tea and lots of liquids."
Cons: "I'd love to know how to request a gluten free meal before a flight."

Cons: "Original flight through Houston was delayed and rerouted through SFO. Then the connecting SFO flight was delayed and missed original flight. Spent 24 additional hours at the airport to catch the next available direct flight. Had an aisle seat but then put between two men who took both armrests for 15 hours."

Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"

Pros: "Arrived much earlier than expected and very smooth trip"
Cons: "Screaming small child for first 30 min of flight"

Cons: "My baggage was lost."

Pros: "Flight was on time and arrived early!"

Pros: "SFO-SYD was great. My luggage was left behind in SYD when I landed QZN!!! Not amused!"
Cons: "Them losing my luggage!"

Pros: "More space, better flight attendants, 3 free meals and free alcoholic beverages. It’s all good."
Cons: "Nothing, loved it."

Pros: "I liked the extensive entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t like that for about 10 hours there is no meal service."

Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"

Pros: "Food was not tasty. Some crew members weee to task oriented and it is make them less friendly"

Cons: "Had to cancel my trip due to family illness. But, not acceptable to United for a refund. And wants to charge me as much as a new ticket to save my ticket. Why penalize me for a sick relative? Unbelievable! And very disappointing."

Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours because of a mechanical issue."

Pros: "Friendly staff, on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped planes."

Pros: "On a recent trip it was very good to be in the new dreamliner and with staff that were enthusiastic and being able to deliver a good product, food and comfort wise was a big bonus. Thank you"

Pros: "Pleased with all"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Very accommodating cabin crew."

Pros: "There were no delays"
Cons: "Even for a smaller person like myself, it was quite cramped--moreso than what I've noted in the past"

Cons: "I had a man sit next to me who was in the wrong seat but didn't move. He told the girl to keep his seat and he would stay next to me. He was so big he was in my space and had didn't make any effort to try not to spill over in my area. I had to put a magazine next to my thigh because his body was so hot it was damp! I hated the entire trip. I was cramped up and extremely uncomfortable. This is simply unacceptable to have this happen because huge people can't fit in one seat. I want these obese people to be required to purchase 2 seats because they take mine."

Pros: "Free directv because of the delays"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled rerouted with Delta"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Delay in boarding"

Pros: "The experience was bad all around. The flight crew was understanding and sympathetic to the situation but offered no concern."
Cons: "The gate agent was not helpful when my flight was running late and was going to miss my connection in Chicago. 10 mins is not enough time to taxi to the gate unload and get to my next flight. The doors close 10 mins before even if it was the next gate the door would have been shut. Had to reschedule flight for not the same day or the next day but two days later! During flight my inflight drink was evening coffee and tasted old as if it had been sitting for a while. Was sat next to a sick ER nurse who was coughing and sneezing in and around the open cup. I was sick for 8 and half days following the flight."

Pros: "Security was great! No hassle and quick. Boarding was on time and fast."
Cons: "Plane was small and cramped. The snack packs of pretzels and things is not very good, it doesn't taste the best and is not healthy for anyone. Had to gate check my one item. Very cold in the cabin even after two hours in flight."

Pros: "Lovely helpful crew."
Cons: "Fee for WiFi & for any kind of entertainment. Also mild confusion with boarding- -stood outside plane for several minutes. Difficult to hear when we were supposed to board."

Pros: "I arrived two hours early to the airport as specified and arrived to find out my flight was delayed by over four hours. So my daughter and I had to sit in the airport for over six hours."

Cons: "When I attempted to check in for flights using the United app both outgoing and return, I found boarding passes were not available for all flights and had to call United to have reservation adjusted so boarding passes could be issued. Don't know why? but inconvenient."

Cons: "Seats could provide lower-lumbar support."

Pros: "The attendants were pleasant and professional. The flight was safe. The chicken curry meal was small but delicious, and the Belgian chocolate truffle ice cream fantastic."
Cons: "Very tight cramped seating;"

Pros: "Pre-check with United"
Cons: "Did not get connecting flights boarding pass from the beginning. Short connection time - was very stressful"

Cons: "Seats are for skinny high school kids who are only 5'2"."

Cons: "flew delta on way down to liberia and they did not charge for any entertainment."
