Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."

Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Ummm . . . the colors?"
Cons: "10 years ago, American was a great airline. It has just gone down and down. The flight attendants are miserable, grabbing things out of your hand when they come to collect stuff before landing. No smiles, no grace. The plane was old, but also poorly cleaned between flights, so the bathrooms on our LAX-Atlanta flight smelled of urine from minute 1--you can imagine how they smelled by the time we landed. There was trash in my seat-back pocket when I took my seat. Supposedly food was available for purchase, but I couldn't activate the food menu, only the drinks menu, on my little seatback screen, so I just waited until I got to Atlanta to eat."
Cons: "Our honeymoon started off with American airlines delaying us by 3 hours in Miami causing us to miss our flight to Iceland and now we are stuck in Dallas paying out of pocket for everything because American does not reimburse anything. Just brutal."
Pros: "Pleasant service ; courteous team"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Great and safe"
Cons: "Compared with the 3 x 3 seating configuration on the AA A321 fleet, the 737-800 seating is very cramped. Significantly less leg room."

Pros: "Crew were pleasant Arrived safely"
Cons: "Seats are way too cramped especially for my broad shoulders. Beverage service was minimal"
Cons: "Delayed flight, multiple gate changes"

Cons: "No screens in each seat."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "We were delayed almost two hours for weather and then when I finally boarded, myself and a few other people were pulled aside to be asked new security questions and have new boarding passes printed. The people at the desk let us know that it was because we checked in online. I don't mind being asked questions but they could have done that part of the process in the two hours that we were waiting to board so as not to further delay the boarding process."
Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."
Pros: "The smooth flight"
Cons: "The smell in the plane"
Pros: "Friendly crew Smooth flight"
Cons: "Couldn't select seats"
Pros: "AA customer service was great because we had missed our connection from Rome to Chicago. They got me and my daughters on the next available flight back to LAX with preferred seating that we had already paid for. They proactively checked my carry-on and the flight had all the individual entertainment amenities we were hoping for. The crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "There was nothing about this flight I didn't love."
Pros: "On time dep/ arrival"
Cons: "Incompetente of Ground agent. Uninterested flight attendants in business class. Luckily it was a n In revenue ticket. Would never pay for that level of service."
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Pros: "Remodeled plane style"
Cons: "Liked it"
Cons: "This leg of my flight was closed out on me!"
Pros: "The plane was really nice."
Cons: "The food was not good."
Pros: "Treated very bad and rudely by the staff crew with disrespect and yelling around. Have to manners and respect for passengers. Do not want to mention names. Even the ground staff have no control over the hand carry on luggage, just allowing everyone on board and ended up with horrifying situation which caused the delays in take off, disrespect between the black and white AA staff. No respect for each other. My worst experience in history flying with AA."
Pros: "Good Entertainment. One flight attendant was great."
Cons: "American Airlines Seats were too close together. The plane was way way too hot. Asked the flight attendants and spoke to the captain after the flight as the front coach section of the aircraft was at least 10 degrees hotter than the rear. We were all taking layer of off cloths as it was so hot. Seems the first class attendants were not monitoring the temps which regulars the temps just behind first class. Told the flight attendant who also acknowledged it but the first class attendants did not make the change Many were angry. We were on the Tarmac for almost 1.5 hours waiting for the plane to be de-iced. No AC during the process."
Cons: "Okay, but flight was delayed."
Cons: "Service was great but seating was cramped and uncomfortable, entertainment system was massively out of date, and no power outlets were available. Nickel and diming for extra (proper?) legroom was not appreciated."
Cons: "Food was horrible. A lot of seats in economy do not work properly and power supplies for cell phones are broken in a few seats. The flight attendants had to assist passengers by manually pushing seats back to up right position. Overall, needs a little remodeling."
Pros: "Outside my issues, everything else was quite pleased"
Cons: "I was charged twice for my seat. Purchase flight and I chose my seat. Both charges were separate. Once I made it to the airport I was charged again for the seat. Really confused with this matter. One ticket agent was anything but unpleasant, I am disable and I had to load my luggage on the ramp. Very unprofessional. Those two situations sad"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and give another one to Boston and then to washigton I was 13 hours late"
Cons: "I purchased a “first class”seat when the door close I switch from my seat to the front seat to put more distance with others passengers since I’m a transplant paciente. The rude flight attendant told me in a very bad tone to go back to my seat that I couldn’t seat in there . Only to see later that she put her coat in there. I got up later to go to the bathroom , also I have overreacted bladder and she told me in same rude talk go back to my seat that if I couldn’t see that the do not get up signs were on. I felt literally she yelled at me . Never asked me if I needed help , or just wait a little . I literally pee in my pants"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "I mean nothing. But a cute added feature could be massage chairs in Business/First. JetBlue has them and it is a pretty nice special surprise. But seriously- you guys are great!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent seat was as usual"
Cons: "Something to Fill your tome a little more"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."
Cons: "Premium plus Economy was not as advertised"
Pros: "The plane had lots of leg room."

Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "The arrive time was excellent. Courtesy and smile faces of the Crew in Business Class"
Cons: "The boarding process was ugly, in disorder and it is a big lie you have with your business class ticket the priority option. The food was very poor. I had to avoid continue eating because I felt the food was not fresh."
Pros: "My bag actually made it to my destination before I did. I also managed to modify my flight on the United app to a better one than the customer service provided."
Cons: "no accommodation or food vouchers offered. If I didn't have a smart phone to shop around, I would have been subject to price gouging of local hotels. I was quoted $399/night at one of the generic hotels advertised at the airport kiosk."
Pros: "very comfortable able to move up to first class due to premier access since silver. which was nice"
Pros: "Glad they had a direct flight."
Cons: "The seats didn't offer much room."

Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."
Pros: "the plane got me to chicago in one piece"
Cons: "United switched the aircraft shortly before takeoff and reassigned me to an uncomfortable aisle seat in the last row of the middle section of the plane. The seats were dingy, the back-of-seat TV monitors were grainy and of poor quality, the headphone jack for audio was old and not fully functioning."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Pretzels are not good snacks"
Cons: "They don’t care about their passengers one bit"
Pros: "The service at the automated counter was very good"
Pros: "Everything !!"
Cons: "Not applicable ........................................... ..............."
Pros: "I only flew united because it was the cheapest I found for my flight at the time I booked it."
Cons: "My seat 3 of the 4 of my connecting flight seats were broken and could not recline. I could smell urine coming from the bathroom from my seat while waiting for people to board(3 hrs of urine smell will ruin any flight experience). The internet did not work coming back from Central America so if you don't have the entertainment app already on your phone, you couldn't watch any tv since you can't even download the app. Other airlines normally have a monitor so their customers can watch tv and not stain their eyes looking at their phone. But with United, if you don't get beat up the airline, its considered a win."
Cons: "As common as this might be, I think 4 hours delay is the worst advertising for an airline. I completely understand things can happen but, what would happen if I show up 4 hours late? will you be ok with that. We gotta be fair. I think passengers deserve a compensation for this"
Pros: "tsa pre"
Pros: "Old and filthy not clean Nowhere to charge the phone First class seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Old and filthy not clean Nowhere to charge the phone First class seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked could fly out until the next day"
Cons: "Booked on flight next day but much less convenient than original direct flight."
Pros: "Flight was very smooth and timely"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work properly. Couldn't watch anything entirely. Frankfurt Airport is poor logistically"
Cons: "They charge de luggage, didnt gave anything to eat, the luggage in orlando came like 2 hours late. The flight back from Houston was cancelled with no reason, they overbooked the flight.. and worst of all the only offer us a $10 disccount in a cheap hotel.. no food nothing"
Pros: "Could have basic viewing for free like other airlines."
Pros: "Awesome Illy coffee and stroopwaffel cookie for my flight to Guatemala for my first medical mission trip on a snowy cold morning was a welcome snack. It was so much better than the snack mix or nut packs that you usually get."
Cons: "The plane being overbooked, having to check my carry on bag. Making me late to my event having to wait at the carousel."
Pros: "Coldest flight ever, they don't get it do they?"
Cons: "My bag didn't came with came, it was a direct flying. The air conditioned was too cold"
Cons: "They suspended my ticket claiming I was a NO SHOW when that was not the case @ all!"
Cons: "Both flights were INCREDIBLY delayed. First, the flight from San Jose was delayed 1.5 hours because they were "waiting for the aircraft." After everybody finally boarded the plane an announcement was made that somehow the luggage crew had damaged the cargo hold, and that everybody would have to deplane. It would take 45 minutes for maintenance crew to arrive to assess the situation. People got up, got their luggage out of the overhead bins, and started moving to the front of the plane. The pilot then came back on the intercom and told everyone they would have to return to their seats. Roughly an hour later we finally took off. It would have been the decent thing to do to AT LEAST offer the passengers something (i.e. comp drinks or snacks), but the cheapskates at United DIDN'T EVEN APOLOGIZE. Multiple people missed their connections. Fast forward to IAH--> SAT. Another late flight. This time, everybody boarded the plane only to be informed that due to a problem with the plane's computer everybody would have to sit on the plane while they "rebooted" its computers. This was done TWICE. UNITED AIRLINES, GET IT TOGETHER. There is a very good reason you are consistently ranked one of the WORST US-flagged carriers, which makes you one of the MOST HATED AIRLINES ON THE PLANET. I really and truly pray that the US airlines and their lobbyists lose their battle to prevent foreign flagged carriers from operating within the US, because you all deserve to go bankrupt."
Cons: "The planes seem to need a little bit of refurbishing"
Pros: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."
Cons: "Just waiting and no information as to why. At the same time the flight to Stockholm, was delaid, aml all this information came over "our" speaker, even when they started boarding , quite confusing."
Pros: "TSA forced me to be sexually fondled. Then the flight was over booked. My connecting flight was delayed. My last flight was also delayed by over three hours. Rather rude customer service agents. Joseph in Dulles was the exception however."
Cons: "There are 2 maintenance problems on 2 different planes that caused major delays in Chicago. This is the last time I'm taking United."
Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."
Pros: "That I arrived to Memphis on time!"
Cons: "That the air isn't on until its time to board, instead of being a lil before its time to board."
Pros: "The attendants were super nice"
Pros: "Kindness of crew"
Cons: "Flights were delayed, no entertainment... Only pay-per view... No free food..."
Cons: "Boarded, then deboarded due to missing rivets, flight delayed nearly 4hrs, luggage claim took close to an hour"
Cons: "Everytime I was about to board there always seemed to be a problem with the flight it didn't even miss. Having so many problems caused delays. When other people including myself had other connections to get to and made me run through airports and I actually missed a flight and instead of taking one direct flight to Puerto Rico I had to take two more flights."
Pros: "Attentive crew, on time departure and arrival. I came on crutches due to recent surgery. Flight attendant assisted with putting them in the overhead bin and assisted my getting off the plane also."
Cons: "I paid extra to upgrade to a seat behind the bulkhead which eould give me more legroom. The bulkhead was way too close for that. So I felt this money was not well spent."
Cons: "Plane broke had to deplane... Missed flight due to shorter layover than expected"
