Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was nice. The updated entertainment system on the back of the headrests were nice."
Cons: "The seats were pretty cramped even by today’s standards. It felt more like a frontier or Ryan air flight in that regard. Glad it was only about a 2 hour flight. I’m only 5’4”, I don’t require a lot of room, but my hips were killing me from lack of leg room. Can’t imagine what it’s like for taller people."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The plane could have arrived on time, made sure everything worked fine, and got me to my destination like they said they were going to... instead, stand by for a different flight was not what I paid for... but it is what I got."
Pros: "Take off 20 minute early. Super on time."
Cons: "The food can be better."
Pros: "The crew was great, the plane was new with good tech and space in the seats"
Cons: "Terminal b at lga is a disaster"
Pros: "Captain asked passengers not making close connections to allow passengers with connections to deplane first was very helpful."
Cons: "Flight left late and arrived late making my connection in Philadelphia for a flight to Budapest a very close call."
Cons: "American Airlines flights are always delayed. Using them for business travel is not advisable for anyone."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and very cramped seating"
Pros: "Sears are still too narrow."
Cons: "I wish I could of finished my movie !!!"
Cons: "My flight time was changed because the crew was not on time. Then it was changed back after everyone had already made accommodations for their connections, me included."
Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"
Cons: "salt free option for snacks; flight could have not been delayed but that’s not the flight crew’s fault. winds at sfo caused us to delay our takeoff"
Cons: "Only arriving in Madrid took 1/2 to open the door"
Pros: "The food was pretty good and they served lots of wine."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment on a 9 hour international flight (only live news), so we had to use whatever entertainment we brought ourselves. Also, there was no place to charge our phones. I guess next time I should prepare better for something like this."
Cons: "There was a mom with 3 very rowdy boys in the row in front of me. They disrupted the entire length of the flight! I wish a Flight Attendant had said something to them as the mom clearly didn't care to discipline her kids. Worst flight ever!"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 3 times!"
Pros: "Getting off the plane after 3+ hour flight and 45 mins taxi and waiting for gate"
Cons: "Bought our tickets months ago, 2 travelers , myself and wife. Couldn't seat together. Our baggage ( Small backpack and a hardside roller we bought cause it would fit under the seat. Guess what I know they changed the size of the underseat bag . We had it checked going to PHX ,no issue on the way back $50. I'm done with American Airlines and Kayak."
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Pros: "Our first upgrade to 1st class since I stopped working for IBM in 2009!"
Cons: "Yes Old planes again. No charging ports no entertainment. The crew was nice but the whole experience of this trip was awful."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late. No big deal. Once on, however, they made us deboard because they forgot to do a security check. Oops. Flight attendants made the experience much better -- funny, enthusiastic, hard-working."
Cons: "The touch screen for the video monitors need to be replaced. It was very difficult to select a movie."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Pros: "Me gusto todo"
Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."
Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."
Pros: "Huge clean plane"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by more than two hours which caused us (me, wife, 4yo, and 7mo) to miss our connection from LAX to HNL. We had to stay the night in LA and take a morning flight to HNL. But despite the delay, the gate agent in Charlotte did a good job of updating people and remained very polite even when it was clear people were getting frustrated and starting to get sharp with him. Pilots did a good job of trying to make up as much time as possible. I can't remember how much time they shaved off but I think it was more than 20 minutes. Customer service in LA was solid too. Went to CSD to get our tickets changed. They had already changed our flight to a 8 AM flight. We asked if we could take a later flight because of the kids and he was able to accommodate. They also gave us vouchers for 3 meals and a night at the Holiday Inn. Having a delayed flight is never fun but the AA staff was amazing throughout."
Pros: "Attentiveness of Gate personnel Punta Cana airport and of the flight attendants. The entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of variety in food options during flight."
Pros: "Boarding was I rushed and efficient, roominess of seats, pillow and blanket waiting for us on our seats, good dinner and breakfast, frequent passes by flight attendants to see if folks needed water - great movie selection, USB chargers at every seat- just great!"
Cons: "Jerk who smoked in the bathroom so the alarm went off in the middle of the flight and woke folks up, so it got brighter and noisier and harder to sleep!"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy gate agents were awesome."
Cons: "Older plane. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3.5 hours while the crew cleaned up a fuel spill and we waited for a different co-pilot."
Pros: "Good pilot communications. On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Very cramped quarters. Broken seat. Out of control heating system. Rude staff An hour wait for baggage."
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "Lack of customer service for parents traveling with babies. Denied pre-board despite asking gate agent. Not kid-friendly."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay because I believed they double booked a gate and there was no plane. Didn't offer beverage service( they did on the departure flight) on returning flight to miami"
Pros: "The actual attendants on board were perfunctory but had zero urgency or understanding that we had been delayed or notified we'd be so delayed. Appeared there was zero communcation between the gate staff and actual crew. So much was so 'typical Miami' which is just a sad way any travel experience should be described. I expect more from the largest global airline especially when I just listened to several interviews from the CEO who appeared to pride himself to be accurate in being the best to serve his patrons."
Pros: "For a flight on a US-based airline, this was very comfortable. Much better than the current domestic tin cans. Flight was early"
Cons: "Flight crew giving instructions seemed to be forgetting everything and breaking in every 2 minutes to add a new sentence."
Pros: "The plane actually left without a cancellation"
Cons: "Every flight on this trip was delayed"
Pros: "As usual, the staff at Ithaca airport were warm, friendly, and welcoming. It can be a shock if you're not used to it, be warned!"
Cons: "Flight delayed on tarmac for almost an hour. No air during delay. Seats are not very comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding and ticketing process"
Cons: "Food was insufficient"
Pros: "The Crew"
Cons: "Flight previous day that I was supposed to be on was cancelled. This one was late and there was no sense of urgency by the crew to get back on schedule. I had to run all the way across the Charlotte airport to make my connection. The gate door had already closed (early) but I got someone to open it for me. There was no assistance from the flight crew to help me make my flight. No gate information was announced, etc."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination on time. Airport was nice and clean in Reno."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Enough leg room in the priority seating section."
Cons: "After US Airways finally managed to upgrade their fleet to a A330 between PHL and ZRH, American Airways apparently reversed that progress and is using again Boeing 767 without personal entertainment system but only overhead screen. Very disappointing. Also, the space for carry-ons and personal items was very limited in the priority seating area."
Cons: "Plane was late After we boarded, we sat for an hour while they tried to resolve a computer glitch about which they told us nothing while we sat there sweating, i.e. communication very poor. Delay caused us to miss our landing slot in Lima and we had to sit in hot plane another hour. Once there, it took over 20 minutes for a bus to come for us. Then luggage was slow to arrive. As a consequence I missed an international flight that I should have arrived 4 hours before boarding. Avianca staff at check-in window told me they could not help me because Avianca doesn't have a formal relationship with American. As a result, I had to pay $300 to rebook and arrived at my destination 12 hours later than planned. Send me my $300 and I will fly on Avianca again, otherwise NO. We weren't even offered cold drinks for our 2 hot hours on tarmack or profuse apologies. If there had been a bus there waiting for us I would have made my flight. About 10 other passengers missed their flights as well. The whole situation was handled poorly and with a lack of professionalism."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful and the in-flight movie was great!"
Cons: "A teenager sitting behind me kept putting her feet and knees at the back of my chair making it very uncomfortable for me the entire flight."
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"
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: "Good timing flight even delay from denver due to snow/ice"
Cons: "The crew is not so much to mention because they don't do much in services, the seats are not comfortable for international long flight"
Pros: "I purchased a seat with extra legroom and It was comfortable, the staff was accommodating, and the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The food was not good, salad was old, and overall not good."
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: "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!!!"
Cons: "The pilot's landing was way too fast. I was sure that the plane would come to a stop in Hwy 280 at the end of the Asheville runway. That plane probably needed a major brake job after that landing. We ended up at the absolute very end of the runway!"
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: "Free wifi & drinks, good time and friendly staff"
Cons: "The ride was bumpy (not their fault) and the plane was just loud in general."

Cons: "Again with the pretzels"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Once we got on it went well, so I won't complain! It was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "Well my boarding group (5) was the last to board, we were informed after they shut the door and boarded all other groups that it was overbooked and that 14 people couldn't take this flight. We had 2 in our party that had made the plane (grp4, child n wife). After about a half hr of confusion and a handful of volunteers to take alternate flights, I boarded along with a friend who was traveling with me, they then shut the door behind us telling the rest they couldn't board"
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!"
Pros: "There was more room on this flight. Comfortable. Staff was nice."
Cons: "Gate change/delay"

Cons: "terrible delay..."
Cons: "Plane was small with very loud engine"
Pros: "lay flat bed in business class"
Cons: "The seat area wasn't cleaned properly"
Cons: "Flight was canceled completely. No email was send about the cancelation or explanation. Agents weren't helpful with readjusting flights"
Pros: "I was satisfied with the friendliness of the flight crew. The comfort of the flight was satisfactory also."
Cons: "I was unhappy with the handing of my luggage when unloaded plane side in Houston. The unwillingness of the representatives of United to help was extremely dissapointing. My flight being delayed I guess was just the icing on the cake."
Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "NO leg room."
Cons: "Food was not great. Crew was not so friendly."
Cons: "Uncomfortable, and unsafe, seat - with the bottom sagging badly on the right side at the back. Narrowly avoided having to check my hand luggage through to Nice, France, which would have been the second time on a row! Why, oh, why can't they ENFORCE the carry-on rules that are supposed to limit the size and number, as they do in Europe?! If you're in group 5, forget carry-on."
Cons: "I left my Kindle in the seat pocket. It has not been returned."
Pros: "Our tickets had no assigned seats so we checked in at the gate. The attendant was very helpful but could only offer us middle seats sitting apart from one another. When we scanned our passes at the gate we were surprised to learn she found us seats together with extra leg room! What a treat!"
Pros: "I was very disappointed for the price I paid I expected a bit more of everything there"
Pros: "Overall, I was satisfied with my flight experience. There were no delays and boarding was smooth."
Cons: "I had the same sad flight attendant on both flights that I had that day. Her name was Brittany. She didn't smile or seem at all content to be alive. It was awkward. Also, wish we had wifi."
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Got me a aisle seat when I asked. Flight came through as promised."
Pros: "The crew was great. The food was good. The flight was prompt. Overall the flight was pretty good. it wasn't so cold and cramped the flight would've been perfect."
Pros: "The quality of food has really improved."
Cons: "Internet - didn't work. Dirty lavatories. Broken seat Nasty uncaring flight attendants Entertainment system - inferior."
Pros: "Seats too small. Entertainment selection poor."
Cons: "Typical complaint, I'm sure. The seats are way too small and uncomfortable. Movie/tv selection was poor. Delta had a much better selection. Even us airways/American has a better selection. Since the seats are so small and uncomfortable, it would be nice to have a decent movie to watch and try to zone out for the long flight. I doubt I'll fly United overseas again. I guess you get what you pay for...no frills. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "No option to turn Direct TV commercials off"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Layovers. I hate waiting!"
