Narrow middle seat in Boeing 777 (10 abreast) instead of 9. Boarding one an a half hour late.
It was not that good. The AC of the the airplane was off for 30 minutes before it took of. When asked for it to be turned on, the flight attendant was completely rude and said that I would have the option to get off the plane if I didn’t like the situation. I thought it was disrespectful and unnecessary for him to act like that, especially when there were passengers that were tired and without sleep after an international flight.
Self entitled pax loudly continuing his telephone conversation after pushback was tolerated and only after the safety demonstration did crew address it.
Pros: "Everything was great."

Pros: "The crew did their job."
Cons: "At least monitors to watch a movie since there is no food in first class..."

Cons: "We didn't leave on time, so an on-time departure."
Cons: "No room for long legs. Seats too close"
Pros: "Seat extremely comfortable."
Cons: "We sat waiting a few minutes after everyone was onboard."
Cons: "I was sitting in premium economy and there was no food left. Unacceptable on a long flight. Also on long flight they should give you the can to drink. One little cup of liquid and NO food not even a bag of pretzels or cookies was offered. They could have at least come around with water only later on"
Pros: "Smallest seats of any airline I've recently traveled on"
Cons: "Flights were crazy, our plane was delayed over an hour while we were already boarded due to low fuel. We also circled around the air which caused at least 13 other people to miss the connecting flight to Vegas by three minutes and they could not hold the plane."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and kept us informed of ongoing issues."
Cons: "There was not enough fuel to make the connection in Charlotte as well as mechanical issues with getting the luggage off the plane resulting in being stuck over night. Also they lost my bag."
Pros: "Your crew was friendly, attentive and efficient. Flight was excellent and the pilot kept us informed."
Cons: "food selection was minimal. Wanted one of the fresh plates, but there was only hummus and crackers."
Cons: "Very poor communication with multiple delays. Boarding was 2 hours late, and yet flight was still showing as on time. Then when finally boarded, sat at the gate much longer due to no push back crew. Sloppy and disrespectful of peoles time!"
Pros: "Flights reached the destination before scheduled arrival"
Cons: "Chicago airport is a mess. It took us about 3 hours from exiting international terminal to domestic We managed to board a flight just before the gate close. Literally running in the airport. I believe there are people who missed the flight"

Pros: "Much more room in seats than expected"
Pros: "Great crew cabin and excellent service at the checking area"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."
Cons: "Due to technical error my flight delayed and I missed my flight to Hyd from London. I was traveling on personal medical emergency and missed an important surgery of my mother."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I flew American four times in 7 days, every flight was delayed. delay times varied from 90 minutes to over three hours. Fog in Chicago was beyond anybody's control, but the other times were not weather related, I recently flew frontier Air and their flights were also late. I jinxed myself by stating I never have this issue with AA. Great job at proving me wrong. I flew a good bit last year and these issues didn't start until after the new year., Thank you for your time."
Pros: "All went well the St"
Cons: "Need more leg room"

Pros: "Good meals"
Cons: "Could not get seats together with my husband"
Cons: "I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it."
Pros: "Nothing exceptional"
Cons: "Change fees are ludicrous. Also flight was late."
Pros: "Got us on the flight and in the air fast."
Cons: "They had plane issues and then the flight was delayed and then they changed our gates."

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Pros: "A long but uneventful flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. The flight was fine."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "The Newark security people were ridiculously rude. The flight was delayed due to mismanagement of the gates, and yet they yelled as us, the folks standing in line (and not making a ruckus). The flight attendants seemed bored and were inattentive."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was great. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "There was very little room for my legs and I couldn't rest my arm on the seat next to me since the person on my left took over. It made my flight much worse. It is difficult to fly overnight when you are so uncomfortable and the price was very high in the economy area."
Pros: "Crew was great and I really like the text updates on landing for my new gate with directions on how to navigate Dulles."
Pros: "I liked it because the flight was not overbooked and I had plenty of space."

Cons: "Food was mediocre and in very small amounts, even the I have been seated in premium economy, there still was little space in the armrests and hardly any recline"
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Cons: "Plan on wearing your running shoes. United is bad at giving you a lay over that is almost impossible to make. 45 minutes or less for a layover is going to give u a pretty good chance to miss your flights. We went to LAX and had to run from terminal 8 to 7. If it were long we would have missed it.."
Pros: "The avod system of movies was good and the channel 9 ATC was amazing to listen to."
Cons: "Multiple delays because of United crazy crew scheduling and a lazy flight crew. Flight attendants didn’t even give us the meals on a 12 hour flight. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "Food was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seats are just too close for a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Was flying biz class and the audio wasn’t working. The flight attendant tried her best but only was able to reboot over and over again. But she didn’t offer a voucher or anything for the lack of a sound system."
Pros: "Flight was on time, even a little early. Bags came out quickly at destination."
Cons: "Crowded seats. Too many people bringing huge bags on board even when crew kept asking them to check them. Customs was very long in DC. It would have been nice to been made aware of dowloading customs app before deplaning. It would have saved a huge amount of time."
Pros: "kosher meals were on plane. extra legroom was comfortable. Good choice of movies"
Cons: "We started to board on time and after group 1 boarded, they said they pulled the crew for a different flight and we needed to wait til 1:30 AM ( 2.5 hours delay) to board. Then 30 minutes later they called us back after finding another crew. It was very chaotic and made not sense"
Pros: "We left on time and got in a bit early leg room was ok for me."
Cons: "It's a long flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great multimedia"
Cons: "Food was good but they served same dish for dinner and breakfast"

Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food was terrible the service wasn't great not even one the flight attendant walked by and offered bottles of water or dessert besides the 2 meals served. The restroom always were out of tissu paper and were not maintained."

Cons: "The food was not very good"
Cons: "Delay Food Service Plane equipment"
Pros: "The new business seat gives improved comfort. New airplane smell."
Cons: "Flight was late close to one hour because of catering. No prior notices - we were left to stand for more than an hour in front of gate. Surely and nasty elderly citizens made up the flight crew including pilots. About the same service you get from a Siberian gulag prison guard. No communications from pilots. Despite delays and turbulence we were kept in the dark."
Cons: "United organized boarding by zones (1, 2, 3, 4) where 1 is in the front of the aircraft (business) and 4 is at the back. While I appreciate that business travelers should have priority boarding, the order of coach is from front to back. It would be beneficial to begin coach boarding from the back to the front to reduce the traffic on the aisles."
Pros: "Overbooked flight and were upgrade"
Pros: "Polaris is a great product"
Cons: "Crew still stuck in their old ways and don't deliver personal service, just wait your turn trolley service - when they spend most of the time chatting in the galley!!"
Pros: "Direct flight was convenient"
Cons: "The crew on the outbound leg of the trip was unprofessional loud and disrupted everyone's sleep."
Pros: "Nice plane, great crew. on time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "United has terrible boarding procedures... a problem most airlines have... they need to get it together to stop the mad rush to get on the plane... 5 boarding groups does absolutely nothing... On a side note many things could be improved by offering free checked baggage and charge for overhead bins.... so many delays, arguments and general aggravation caused by people struggling for overhead bin space... just have a guaranteed spot overhead for a fee.... no more aggravation period... when they started charging for checked bags but offered free carry on the problems got worse... flip it around and several problems go away... simple."
Pros: "The landing was perfect"
Pros: "Crow was great , was very nice flight actually !"
Cons: "My flight was delayed by an entire day and I gladly accepted the change, I did not argue. Then, on my return, I arrived 20 minutes before my flight and the desk associates would not issue me my ticket. The flight had not left, I had not missed my flight, theywould not let me board for not being early by 40 minutes (I was there 20 minutes before). The reason this pissed me off is because I had to pay 2 additional hotel nights which wound up costing me additional 300 dollars which United WONT PAY FOR. I want at the very least 300 dollars worth of credit, it is unbelievable."
Cons: "The seating selection and comfort was below parr"
Pros: "Very profesional crew with positive attitude Take off and landing within the planed time schedule"
Cons: "Not enough movies with Hebrew subtitles For people with hearing problems English subtitles for all movies can help"
Pros: "flight is OK + in business class"

Pros: "Quick load and exit"
Cons: "Small plane. Dozens of bags taken in jetway so a long wait for delivery. Rough ride throughout"
