"I really wish American offered some type of free messaging."

Pros: "The flight didn't last long"
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence so the flight was a bit bumpy."

Cons: "Everything was dandy!"

Pros: "Nothing. It’s a terrible airline. Seriously, don’t book with them unless you’re desperate or you want to have an anxiety attack."
Cons: "American isn’t my preferred airline for obvious reasons (delays, notoriously bad service, old planes, and a lack of amenities like WiFi and tv’s), but now I’ll never spend my money with them again. They took me off an already delayed flight after I’d already boarded to examine my smart bag. I know that lithium batteries can’t be taken in the underbelly of the plane and I knew my bag would likely be checked at the gate (why I removed the battery and left it at home in the first place). When they asked me if I had a lithium battery in my bag I said “no.” They then gate checked the bag and allowed me on the plane. After everyone had been boarded (half an hour after we’d been scheduled to take off) they then called my name out on the speaker. I had to then de-board the plane and re-explain to staff that there was no lithium battery in my bag. The staff didn’t believe me citing the infallible logic: “there are ports so there’s a battery.” I told them again and again that the battery had been removed and the charging ports—while there—were inert as they weren’t attached to the battery. STILL, I had to remove all of my clothes from the bag, and open every single compartment (of which there were many) for them to allow me to get back onto the plane. They were telling me that they might have to “rebook the flight” if my bag couldn’t get on. I don’t think I need to explain how agitated/terrified that made me."

Pros: "Easy boarding. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Both the to and return flights, I was never able to get their entertainment to work on my iPhone. The website fails to load in the browser even though I’m on their in flight WiFi and following instructions specifically"

Cons: "After booking about 6 months ago we got seated inBACK ROW against the wall. Couldn’t seat recline over 3 inches and right next to bathroom. Why can’t you give these seats to passengers that fly STANDBY"

Cons: "We left an hour late ."

Cons: "Everything AA did nothing right."

Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"

Cons: "The airport at Chicago always keeps me on the tarmac arriving OR departing. One of my least favorite airports, and almost always my last pick."

Pros: "All was ok accept they charge 32dollar for bag."
Cons: "Travel with free bag."

Pros: "Big jet not typical going into Knoxville."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding had every zone called essentially at once so we could all stand."

Pros: "Gate for flight to Paris from Chicago was changed at least 4 times. At the gate boarding was supposed to start at 10:15. Kept getting delayed until 11pm and then it finally got cancelled. Noone directed us on what to do. It is 20hours later and I still haven't made it 6to my destination."
Cons: "My luggage is lost and none of the American Airlines have been able to locate it. I will never fly with American Airlines again."

Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."
Cons: "Everything!"

Cons: "I know this flight was considered local so they get away with no serving food but Phoenix to Honolulu is 7 hours long. they need to consider that other passengers took that flight as connection to a previous flight mine was Charlotte to Phoenix 4:45 duration"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled and there were zero accommodations"

Cons: "More turbulent than usual"

Pros: "Flight was delayed by approximately 90 minutes. Attendant was friendly."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "the Bowing 787 was wonderful"
Cons: "flight had been delay and delay. we are very disappoint because we always think we are fly with British airway, we even went to check in counter of British airway but find out America airline are the solo airline.you guys can't advertized like that."

Pros: "Crew was very nice Flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Mediocre snack/meal"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and did a good job of keeping the passengers informed of delays"
Cons: "The gate check-in person was not very pleasant. Once we had to get off the plane after leaving the gate the flight information disappeared and could not be found on any flight tracking service. I know the airline cannot help the weather but keeping passengers informed is key to making people feel comfortable."

Pros: "Our seats were booked by a cruise line and were not together on this flight. When my husband asked, the gate agent was able to seat us in at least the same row."

Pros: "On time. Good crew."
Cons: "Flight was over sold and announcements about it at the gate had a threatening tone."

Pros: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."

Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"

Cons: "No free water on British Airways"

Pros: "Friendly Crew."
Cons: "The food that was served."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Haven't made it to my final destination yet.."

Pros: "They cancelled this flight."
Cons: "I had to fly to a different city in order to get home."

Cons: "This flight was miserable. Seriously, one of the worst flight experiences I've ever had. The leg room was absurdly small. I'm not a tall person and I only had one inch in front of my legs. When the guy in front of me put his seat back it pressed into my knees. There wasn't enough space to bend down and untie my shoes, let alone get something out of my bag. My shoulder and knee were touching the guy next to me (a complete stranger) for the entire flight and there was nothing I could do about it. This was a red-eye but I absolutely could not sleep because it was so uncomfortable, so when we landed I had a terrible migraine and was nauseous and disoriented going through customs. I actually had to sit down in the airport because I though I was gonna pass out while trying to carry my bag, that's how shitty I felt after this flight. On top of that, not being able to sleep on the flight really messed up my sleep schedule and so jet lag from the time change has been made even worse, so I'm completely out of whack and its so much worse that it otherwise would have been because of the horrible flight. Also the food was gross and there wasn't enough of it. Even now, I don't think I have really communicated just how shitty this flight was. I was actually angry when I saw my seat upon boarding, and I'm still angry about it now."

Pros: "The flight boarded on time and arrived early. Very comfortable new aircraft"

Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."

Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "LIKED NOTHING. 5.5 hour delay on a redeye?! What's to like?"
Cons: "EVERYTHING was poorly handled by AA for this delay. You're at LAX, no pilot? no 1st officer? Where's the planning? And we boarded the plane on time, deboarded the plane, they gave us warm drinks and pretzels and cookies to tide us over. 5.5 hours later? we take off. Nothing AA did was done right for the customer."

Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."

Pros: "The plane was very nice and very comfy. Not a whole lot of leg room where I sat (economy) but it was a cheap ticket so I can't complain."
Cons: "Overbooked flight made storing carryons annoying and hard."

Pros: "Updated interior. Comfortable chairs. Friendly staff. Pilot communicated well."
Cons: "No charging capabilities for devices. Limited food options."

Pros: "Food was good, crew was efficient. Flight was fine"

Pros: "Service on board"
Cons: "Left an hour late; missed connecting flight. Our final destination was DC; connecting flight was to Philly. Wanted them to Serbs us to DC since we missed our flight. But, the agent said he couldn't due to airline regulation. I was willing to pay more. I'm not happy about it."

Pros: "Easy to get on and off"
Cons: "cramped"

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "The A321 had the most cramped seating I've ever experienced. The video in the seat back didn't work properly going or coming back. Boarding was slow. I don't know why they don't load the rear seats first so you don't have to wait for everyone ahead to secure their carry-on luggage. If they didn't charge so much for checking a bag there wouldn't be so much carry-on baggage"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I like the quite clam and smooth flight. The attendants were very helpful; and kind."
Cons: "I did not like that fact that I change me flight to the next day and had to pay $200.00 for a ticket change. I feel if there are opening we should not have to pay an additional charge of $200.00. $50 for a ticket change is understandable, but $200.00. Things do happen and changes must be made. Cynthia J. Black- Finch cynthiajfinch@gmail.com"

Pros: "There were charging outlets. Bravo!"
Cons: "They lost my baggage"

Pros: "The plane crew were quite kind and efficient"
Cons: "When we bought our tickets we asked about how much time to allow between the London flight and our connection to Knoxville. We booked expecting to take the early connection if we could get thru customs early enough. We did, asked for boarding passes and were told it would cost $150.00 to take the earlier flight...so we sat for more than 3 hours waiting for our connection, after buying over $2,000 in airfare, traveling for 24 hours and seeing a partly empty plane leave Charlotte for Knoxville. We were the given the back two non reclining seats on the flight, even though we had booked weeks in advance...so no we felt very let down at the end of a difficult trip."

Cons: "Had to spend 12 hrs in an airport because it was cancelled and was given no reason as to why. I won't fly with aa again"

Cons: "My flight was changed 3 times-- always pick a window seat and was changed to aisle seat. The attitude at the ticket counter was "you're lucky to get any seat", flight was overbooked, the boarding process and deplaning were absurd with all the people bringing on way too much carry on luggage !!! It takes almost 30 min to get off the plane!!"

Cons: "25 minutes late due to having to wait for galley to be stocked. Left the ramp and sat another 15 minutes on the tarmac. Never happened to me on Delta."

Pros: "Crew was making an effort...."
Cons: "A newer plane. First class was old and uncomfortable. Bins were small and didn't fit much."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "Less full"

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

Pros: "Convenient route, great United Polaris lounge at SFO for business passengers."
Cons: "The flight frequently arrives about an hour before customs desks are opened, so passengers are forced to wait inside the airplane after landing until the customs desks are open."

Pros: "Premium economy was great"
Cons: "Toilets were broken"

Pros: "Crew was pretty friendly"
Cons: "Food is disgusting, they should really be embarrassed to serve it to humans. Also, the seats are uncomfortable, don't don't recline enough, and don't offer enough room for normal-sized adults to sit comfortably on a 15 hour flight."

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "A horrific, frustrating and humiliating experience at the Tel Aviv airport. United airlines did not inform me about the security process for transit passengers. I was subjected to humiliating search and with my bag still at the Tel Aviv, because they didn't have enough times Worst experience ever!!"

Cons: "T"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "My video monitor was loose and I had to hold it up the whole time I was watching it. I told the flight attendant but they said they didn’t have a screw driver. The food wasn’t good."

Pros: "Alot of empty seats to stretch out"
Cons: "Very basic not so comfortable seats"

Cons: "Dirty airplain, 12h flight, the food a disaster, crew that don’t know to smile, restrooms dirty the igienic paper and a lot more...."

Pros: "The crew is friendly and helpful. The entertainment system is good and fairly modern. The entertainment over WiFi is a great option."
Cons: "There's no Premium Economy cabin. The Economy Plus seats are as narrow as regular economy seats. The food is fairly basic, and many other airlines serve better."

Pros: "the entertainment program was good, and the plane in good shape"
Cons: "food was terrible"

Cons: "Flight delayed in Chicago with no one at gate ro provide any information on when flight would actually leave. Plane was scheduled to leave at 8:40pm and finally left at 12:43 am. Will never fly United through Chicago again."

Pros: "Even though we took off late, the flight landed early. We were served two meals and a snack. Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "It's a 12 hour flight. It's exhausting"

Pros: "Pleasant flight w pleasant attendant."
Cons: "Tight tight seating! Yuck."

Pros: "Newark Airport is great and the flight was comfortable"

Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"

Pros: "Service,management, food"

Cons: "The comform of the seats was very poor. Entertainment only worked half way. Stewards did not ask if I wanted to eat or not. Only pessengers on the alley seats were asked. Very little attention was given to make passengers comfortable."

Pros: "Helpful finding next flight worried can my son it UN traveled and is in a standby I pray he gets on this flight I am really worried. If he does he will arrive at 11:45 pm if not .... I have no clue he is so young and scARED TRACING ACROSS THE Whole country. For mistakes beyond his control saying prayers."
Cons: "I was tied to go tailgate 10 like my paper said they switched flights to gate 15 missed flight had to wait 7 extra hours flying Into Chicago and have a priority stand by pass from Chicago to Knoxville. I need to be on this flight so bad. If I dont make it i have no clue what i will Do. I need to keep my stress down and just prY i get on this flight which would have me i. Knox about 11:30 pm if not i have no clue what to do.the United Team we have talked to have been nice they just can't confirm my Chigaco flight to Knoxvile and i have 31 min. Once plane lands to get to other boarder term and Al."

Pros: "We enjoyed the ability to have beer and wine included. We thought the meals going to Tel Aviv and on the return were very tasty, good portions, and served at the appropriate times. We loved the choices of movies/tv that were updated and new and also included."
Cons: "The only issue we had was getting up to go to the bathroom midflight. There was some slight turbulence and the attendants demanded we sit down for safety (it wasn't too bad though) yet once we got back to our seats the turblence was fine, and we got up to go again and the same thing happened. There were long lines for the bathrooms. I'm not sure if that can be avoided though."

Pros: "the flight was cancelled!!!"

Pros: "was upgraded"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "smooth flight"
Cons: "seat didn't recline"

Pros: "The flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare there were 4 flights boarding at the same time from gate 57-61. People were coming in line from every direction and it took forever to walk a few feet to get my boarding pass scanned. Then about 1hr into flight it's was freezing in the front of the plane, I was in row 5 and the only solution given to several of those who inquired about it was to "take a walk to the back, it's warmer back there". We were dressed for the winter up front and people in the back were comfortable. It was ridiculous. Mind you this was a tiny plane 1 seat on the right and 2 on the left so not a lot of room to stand and move around."

Pros: "We made it safely to our destination."
Cons: "Did not appreciate the flight attendants at all. VERY rude staff. Not considerate by making everyone wait a LONG time to serve food, which was not served in a friendly manner at all. It was quite obvious they did NOT care about our comfort or experience. Would NOT recommend unless I'm desperate and feel like being around people who hate their job and want me to know it."

Pros: "everything is perfect"
Cons: "i wish i have something to say"

Pros: "I liked the movies,they have many movies and I can choice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and the employees of the front desk don't help anything. The service was worse."

Cons: "The crabbiest crew I've ever encountered - they even barked at each other."

Cons: "Rude staff"

Pros: "the staff was extremely pleasant, and so nice. the flight was ok"
Cons: "The gluten free menu wasn't very good, and also there were no gluten free snacks. 1% of the population has celiac, I expected more these days..."

Cons: "Not enough good movies"

Pros: "Seat had room"
Cons: "Could not lay back"

Pros: "It was a good flight, short but good."

Pros: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Good legroom. Did not feel cramped"
Cons: "No access to movies because my earbuds would not plug into the hole for them. All food was nasty, inedible. Breakfast so bad even the smell of it polluted the cabin for the remainder of the flight. Just a cold ham or turkey and cheese sandwich would have been preferable. Attention from flight attendants was haphazard at best. Chose this flight because of good flight times but in future will avoid United if at all possible."

Cons: "Some moron decided that passengers shouldn't be allowed to bring drinks on the plane. This means that after passing security and customs, after buying an overpriced cup of latte, you are told to spill it or else. And that's in a country that lives on security. Unacceptable. Unjustified and unheard of."

Cons: "The food was terrible"

Pros: "More space than El-al. No delays"
Cons: "Food. We ordered 4 special meals and got only one!"

Cons: "aborted takeoff due to mechanical problem, a bit scary but crew opted for safety and we changed to another plane;thus, long delay but unavoidable."

Cons: "I went on this trip as an veterinary humanitarian out reach. I was also guardian to one high school student so that she might have an experience of such to guild her future. Her flight was missed booked to leave after mine, I attempted to rebook my flight with Luthansia but they would not let me me even partial rebook. I attempted a number of times to rebook the flight but their solution was extreme financial gain for them when more reasonable alternative could have been arranged. They canceled my entire return flight and left me stranded. I had to piece together a return flight on a shoe string budget. Thankfully American Airlines was understanding for it appears Luthansia and United are not."

Cons: "Ok"

Pros: "lay flat bed in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"

Pros: "That the plane arrived on time, which is a miracle in itself."
Cons: "No offer by the Flight Attendant to any passenger if they wanted extra snacks or if they desired to have the entire can of soft drink they requested. Only one A/C was operational, so thank God we cruising at altitude cooled the cabin down."

Cons: "Food was not great. Crew was not so friendly."

Cons: "I left my Kindle in the seat pocket. It has not been returned."

Cons: "The only complaint is to have to pay for the TV. I feel it should be part of the service. On the way going to Punta Cana the flight attendant gave it to us for free and that was very nice as it made the trip seem to go by faster. Other then that everything was wonderful."

Pros: "Once we got on board the flight attendant was very nice and accommodating. The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "We had to wait 4 hours to board our flight. The plane was late, then they had to replace the whole navigation system. Then at the last minute told us to go to another gate and when we got there we were told to go back to the original gate. Getting another plane from the get go would have eliminated a lot of the hassle we all experienced."
