Cons: "Flight was rerouted to another airport due to poor weather at Philly. 3 hours later we arrived at Philly, but I missed my connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew was nice, polite, and fairly accommodating. Would prefer to be given the full can of soda, instead of a glass which is 1/2 can and need to ask for more. Xtra leg room seat was ok."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't great. Long lines. Deask lady gave my extra leg room seat, that I had bought and paid for, away to another person which made my boarding pass invalid. Made my boarding longer. Then no overhead space avail when I did get on and I was in bulkhead seat. I got my seat back.. But it was annoying, unnecessary, and uncalled for. And the woman who did it did not apologize."
Cons: "I got assigned seats but when we got our boarding passes we were seated several rows apart, not in the seats I got when tickets were purchased months earlier. So we got reassigned to near back of plane, not at window seats, near several families with small loud children!! Not pleasant!"
Cons: "No delays"
Cons: "American Airlines lost our luggage and both flights were late, wife her cell phone and credit cards due to running in airport to catch our flight to Lisbon. Not impressed."
Pros: "I am traveling with my 79yr old infirm mother. The crew was so kind & so helpful! On the scale of 1-10 (10=Best) they were like 100! Even though my flight was delayed a bit it was still VERY GOOD! Plus the flight was amazing. The flight was also amazing. Even though we were flying though a storm."
Cons: "You couldn’t have been on time because of the storm so there’s nothing that you could have done"
Cons: "I sat in a middle seat, sandwiched in between a passenger who had an aisle seat on my left and another passenger who had a window seat on my right. It would have been okay, but both were much larger than me and with the seat already a bit narrow, I felt like a sardine on this flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "During boarding female staff disengaged, not calling passengers to her podium to take boarding pass. She made boarding much slower"
Pros: "Seat 5A was great"
Pros: "Great flight crew!!"
Cons: "Better food menu!"
Pros: "Seating was comfy with techy was to entertain yourself."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed due to the plane not being ready. Baggage handling absolutely destroyed my wife’s new luggage. Her suitcase came with a cover to help keep it clean. The cover was ripped in several locations and the whole side of her suitcase was blown out. We will have to purchase new luggage."
Cons: "Everything was fine, crew was great, but the wifi entertainment system is a joke. Its nice to allow passengers to connect and watch movies or shows, however, when trying to watch a movie it constantly buffers. More buffering then watching, to the point of just stopping and skipping it all together."
Pros: "Once the flight began everything was fine"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3.5 hours without a solid reason being explained to the passengers"
Cons: "Delay in boarding due issue with aircraft"
Pros: "Convenient without problems"
Cons: "The aircraft was very old and the seats where hard to sit the crew were not so good, we were thrusting all the trip."
Pros: "Attentive Flight Attenants"
Cons: "waiting on runwat for 30 minutes"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay. American is never on time and constantly calling for passengers to switch flights because of overbooking."
Pros: "The service was pretty good and the flight attendants were helpful and overall happy. Not the worst airline but Could use some work."
Cons: "The flight ended up sitting on the runway a long time. However we were able to push back pretty much on time. The seats were cramped."
Pros: "Love FLIGHT WITH AMERICAN AIRLINES."
Pros: "Upgrade to economy premium was well worth the extra fee."
Cons: "Coffee could have been better."
Pros: "Crew worked hard."
Cons: "premium service was good including extra seat space"
Cons: "Overseas flight and the seats were so tiny. I literally have bruises on my legs on the sides and on my knees from being crammed into the seat in front of me. I'm 73" tall and I couldn't even lower my tray all the way to set food and drink on it."
Pros: "Pleased to get luggage with tight connections. Exceptional crew RSW- Charlotte. Good legroom in overseas flight . Please do on all flights"
Cons: "Tv screen didn’t work on trans Atlantic flight"
Pros: "The flights didn't have any delays"
Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "On flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was delayed 1.5 hours. Rental Car reservation was at a location 30 miles from the airport, not the airport rental location. Had to transfer reservations which cost an extra $30..."
Cons: "My ticket was issued by JAL but it was printed oersted by American Air. I was confused which terminal I should go to checo in. I called JAL. i waited 2 hours. No answer. Then, I called AA. They said international. But i went to terminal 4 which is American Air just in case because it was OPERATED by AA. I was right! I hope someone gave me a correct info."
Pros: "Plenty of overhead storage. Loved USB and AC outlets. Comfortable and expeditious trip."
Cons: "Inboard video sound system stunk. Movie audio was inaudible, particularly dialog, and to make matters worse, choosing subtitles obliterated the rest of the audio. Love Cayman but departure gates are crowded and chaotic."
Pros: "efficiency of terminal and flight changes at Dallas-Fort-Worth excellent. valet service and complimentary checked standard carry-on bag."
Cons: "Didn't know about close connections and terminal changes until printing boarding passes. Snack offerings are minimal one almost all airlines for regular fares. a tiny wafer cookie or about 5 mini-pretzels are not very impressive. I wold much prefer peanuts to pretzels--an option would be good. The gate of outgoing flight to Bloomington kept changing on phone m messaging shortly before takeoff , about 6 gate changes in 10 minutes. Confusing!"
Pros: "It was the night before Thanksgiving and I was really impressed at how smoothly everything went. The crew even had little travel passports for kids and flyer wings (the old school pins, not the stickers). We took off a little late but landed on time, and luggage was out immediately."
Pros: "Great service!"
Cons: "We were not permitted to board the plane until later than expected, but were told we would still take off right away and regain lost time, no mention of a delay at last call or immediately after, despite the 20 minute delay by this point. After taxiing, the pilot informed us of withheld information, that ATC would delay our departure for ~40 minutes, but we could STILL try to make it up in the air. This was a bold faced lie. It was finally 9:52pm before we even took off from SFO. While idling, the cabin started to reek of jet fuel, and people started coughing and sneezing. Upon landing at LAX at 10:46pm, we were told that there was no gate for us, and that we would have to wait for an amount of time that kept changing every time there was an announcement. The toxic jet fumes started to permeate the cabin again, and people started coughing and sneezing in response. Ultimately it is 11:21pm by the time we reached our gate. At this point, the jetway was broken/failed to open, but despite this, the air conditioning was switched off and pax crowd the aisles without direction. Finally we managed to escape at 11:31pm."
Cons: "The Video on Demand service for movies, TV, and Music would skip every 10 to 20 seconds, jumping forward about 2 or 3 seconds at a time...making videos unwatchable. This was a problem for my seat, the two in front of me, and apparently many other seats on the flight."
Pros: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"
Pros: "Flight was on time and prompt."
Cons: "Stayed on the run way for a bit"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly despite turbulence and bad weather, thanks to the crew."
Cons: "Seating is even more cramped than I'm used to, and everything outside of a drink and a biscuit is extra money."
Cons: "I wasn't able to fly Alaska Airlines due to storm in Washington DC. My first flight American Airlines from Charlotte to Washington DC was cancelled. The second flight Alaska Airlines from Washington DC to Portland was delayed, but I never flew. I got a direct flight from American Airlines from Charlotte to Portland instead."
Cons: "Late departure by 90 minutes because no flight crew. Tray table was disabled."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late departure, and arrival (no gate at LAX due to late arrival."
Pros: "No hassle. Drinks provided. No complaints."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Well organised and even arrived early! The flight crew were kind and efficient."
Cons: "No free food"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "For price paid, service and treatment not comensurate expense. Boarding system seems arbitrary to seat booked. Had window seat but middle and aisle seat boarded first...doesn't make sense."

Cons: "Less full"
Pros: "Got a row to Myself"
Cons: "No Masks really enforced"
Pros: "GREAT SEATS AND SERVICE"
Cons: "other than free flights, nothing"

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."
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!!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the cabin was comfortable."
Cons: "No change required."
Cons: "a 2nd snack for a 5 hr flight would have been nice. Also never heard that they were serving lunch meals to buy, heard the breakfast one!"
Pros: "We didn’t like anything about this flight"
Cons: "The seats were absolutely uncomfortable. Far less room than we expected and the seating posture was unbearable. If United continues this poor level of service as it reaches for every last passenger dollar, it will surely lose business. We will seek alternatives from now on."
Pros: "Enough legroom in economy. Crew friendly and helpful. Kosher food good."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "So cramped it’s not even funny anymore. I’m 6 foot and average build. The seats are so narrow, thin, and with such little legroom, I just can’t imagine who can comfortably fit in a United economy seat anymore."
Pros: "It expect delays when flying w United"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the entertainment was good."

Pros: "New plane, roomy, good free entertainment options."
Pros: "A pleasant surprise when overbooked flight was announced was that I could give up seat on Chicago to LA flight and get a direct flight Chicago to San Francisco and still make my connection to Santa Rosa. A very nice perk. Everything comfortable on flight."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything. Comfortable flight. Good flight attendents."
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"
Pros: "I would like to have movies shown during long flights."
Cons: "I do not like satellite TV option. No one seemed to even use it. The internet and the TV are only availlible for certain periods during the flight."
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!!!"
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: "Rude staff"
Pros: "the staff was extremely pleasant, and so nice. the flight was ok"

Cons: "Not enough good movies"
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."
Pros: "The flight crew was kind, informative, and helpful. Very professional."
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: "Flight crew keep kind and courteous."
Cons: "Did get to my father's memorial service on time"

Pros: "They offered us a $50 E-certificate for a future flight to compensate us for the long delay."

Pros: "food and crew"
Cons: "NO leg room."
Cons: "Food was not great. Crew was not so friendly."
