Cons: "With the purchase of tickets there was no meal selection option available. Had to ask at the reporting time and then seat was messed up. 3 seats were three different row while I had two minor sons. Spoke to the travel agents (justfly.com) and requested meal was not properly recorded. I requested, two kids meal and a Hindu meal, when meal came it was told I had Muslim meal. How on earth did it make any sense, I am not even muslim? I did not even mention about muslim. Those dumbass at justfly.com do not have any level of professionalism. I tried to contact china southern airlines, they are always busy, after several attempts, finally somebody on the phone talking chinese shitty accents that only understood a few english. Chinese passenger crowded and with the shitty attitudes. One of the old guy drop the heavy coffee cup on my son's head and hurt real bad when he pulled his bag immediately after the land when he is not supposed to. I have a return ticket to deal with again with pain in a few days. then I will never fly with this shitty airlines. At Gongzhau, kids are hungry in transit, tried to buy food, told they only take Yuan. there was no ATM in transit. had to exchange Yuan and thats the only option there if you want to buy something. Airport wi-fi sucks, no connectivity even after logging into the shitty local advertisers websites. Finally, crew were to manage some kind of food, but did not like it at all. shitty shitty. do no fly this airlines of chinese route at all."
Pros: "Fast as always. Very professional"
Cons: "Inwasny aware my small pocket knife wouldn't be accepted at the airport even though it has been cleared before and the staff was a bit rude about it.the food"
Cons: "Boarding wasn't very prompt, but went smoothly once it began."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Sat in Delta Comfort and a loyal Delta flier, except had the bad fortune of taking off at 830 ATL time and apparently Delta doesn't find it important or a good idea to sell food after that time. The logic behind this is beyond me. I'm willing to pay $9 for a few cheese slice and crackers or a sandwich yet they don't offer anything, not even to first class which would really irritate me had I paid 1000 bucks. Ontop of that the crew which is normally excellent, was feisty and rude and wanted nothing to do with their job"
Pros: "Whoa, we flew Coach and had plenty of space! How marvelous to not be packed in; crew and passengers were wonderfully relaxed, and all went well despite turbulence on takeoff and landing. Great daytime flight experience with my toddler grandchild!"

Cons: "Delta delayed my flight so long that I'm now traveling another day."
Pros: "flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Very old dirty plane"
Pros: "Wonderful staff, very helpful after our plane was diverted"
"A little puddle jumper to go to SFO from LAX seems strange to me. Its cramped and slower than just taking SWA from BUR. Its a little bitty plane, and the added time with the baggage, transferring on the buses and all the extra time needed for these things just don't add up to a quick and dirty business trip."
Cons: "Why do we accept this humiliation from AA, they charge for breading inside the plane, they don't give anything nice to eat or drink, and the tickets are more expensive than others. You know why?, Because we are stupid"
Cons: "The crew seemed like they didn’t know what they were doing."
Cons: "Snacks could be better....seats are small.... it was freezing....no free WiFi and no Tv"
Cons: "The entertainment app didn’t worked"

Cons: "I didn't get to Dallas. There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. I was put on the flight for the next day."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"
Pros: "More comfortable seats"
Pros: "Prior to boarding, we had help with our seating. My wife gets anxiety and our son is three, so I felt like I needed to be there for them both. A crew member ensured we sat together."
Cons: "Everything else."
Pros: "So frendly"
Pros: "the food was great, and they served dinner right away so passengers could get some sleep before arrival"

Pros: "The pilot sounded nice"
Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "I have to say, I’m a medium sized 6 foot guy, but I felt very uncomfortable in the seat with another 6 foot man to my right. I felt like I couldn’t use rest my shoulder, since he was using the armrest. i know this is a calculated decision made by very high ups, but the seats just need more comfort. I was even in an exit row, which has more legroom in comparison, but the actual seat was almost painful."
Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had to wait 5 and a half hours in the airport and not being compensated by the airline, who for some reason penalize anyone of their passagers if they are late or want to change a flight. I was also late for a meeting"
Cons: "was seated between 2 to very overweight persons, the person in the aile side, extrememly heavy needed extension belt, plus removing the arm rest next to me and using great part of my seat. not a very comfortable situation and the plane was FULL, no empty seats"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and entertainment, on time"
Cons: "More water should be offered throughout the flight."
Pros: "The Crew was friendley."
Cons: "Could not checkin on internet."
Pros: "I am happy to have made it to my final destination."
Cons: "This was a disappointing experience to say the very least. The boarding process in Quito was chaotic to say the least. The AA staff did not make an effort to maintain any kind of order. My husband and I are both enrolled in the AA frequent flyer program and had at least 6 people cut in front of us while on-line. When we finally approached the AA representative, Dayana Gómez, She was rude and not helpful. Our seats on the UIO-Dallas flight did not even recline. We sat completely upright for the duration of the 6 hour overnight night flight into Dallas."
Pros: "The food and drink were abundant and served at a decent pace. The boarding seemed quick and I was able to get to my seat quickly."
Cons: "I had a 2 hour layover to switch from my BA flight to my American Airlines flight in Heathrow, but since I, and every other AA passenger had to wait in line to reprint my boarding pass to an AA boarding pass after we had taken the bus to the terminal, I waited about 45 minutes in that line. Then we had to go through security again. By the time I made it to my gate the flight said it was "closing." We took off about 15 minutes after that. The "hot box" snack had goat cheese and I'm not a fan."
Pros: "So great to see the flight attendants help a family (not my own) make sure that a child could get to the toilet even though it meant a brief delay before we could take off. so helpful."
Pros: "The flight staff did the best they could for how few of them there were."
Cons: "Flight cancelled, and the gate was understaffed, so it took forever to even get up to the counter to try arranging alternate flights. Also, the Kayak/Webjet tickets we were issued interfered with the process as the airline could not reissue us tickets directly. Moreover, one Kayak & Webjet got actively involved, they even tried to deny us passage on the alternate flights that American Airlines suggested. By the time we did make it up to the desk, everything was taken/full for the next few days & we have been struggling to make our overseas travel even possible ever since."
Pros: "Flight was good overall , free pretzels were tasty. Drink service on point."
Cons: "Crew came off as annoyed the whole time. Glad I didn't pay the $$ to upgrade my seat."
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Because it was a day later!!!"
Pros: "On time. Quick boarding."
Pros: "In flight individual movie screen at no charge"
Cons: "Had issue with continuing flight after Dallas. Gate agent told me to go to AA.com and wouldn't even try to help. If you can't do it on line, forget it. Tried to call the 800 number and told to wait 2 hours!"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "Flights were boarded efficiently and on time. Crews were courteous and helpful."
Pros: "No delays except for weather."
Cons: "No snack"
Cons: "Everything on this flight was considered an EXTRA. It was uncomfortable and the lay over in Miami made it even worse. Long lines, long distances and extreme delays!"
Cons: "They Only serve pretzels, nothing else different."
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
Pros: "We boarded, then left on the plane for an hour, then offered the opportunity to unboard, then required to unboard. We left several hours late and missed our connecting international flight."
Cons: "Everyone was anxious about missing connecting flights. It was a chaotic scene. The flight staff were clearly annoyed with all the questions they were getting."
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "Overall experience with American Airlines and those under them was definitely not a good one. In the future I will probably look at other airlines."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, and I was glad that it was direct without layovers"
Cons: "The flight attendants were a little stand off-ish. I sat directly behind a screaming toddler on a red-eye. Not that the airline had any control over that, but it was terrible."
Cons: "kayak geat flighthub the worse ROBERS"
Pros: "Amazing crew and comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food, movies"
Pros: "staff was nice"
Cons: "it was late as always, so instead of getting home tonight, I am in a crapy hotel in Houston ...."
Pros: "I sat next to two of the flight attendants prior to our departure. When they got up to board, their negative comments about getting on the plane made me think Wow, why are you doing this job, if you don't really want to go. The two attendants at the check in, they need some training."
Cons: "More professional staff."
Pros: "It was a very old and TINY plane."
Cons: "Newer and atleast a midsize plane."
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Losding procedure orderly, staff helpful."
Cons: "Pretzels are getting old, anything new out there?"

Cons: "La película que pusieron fue realmente mala"
Cons: "Both outbound and invound flights were delayed 3 hours and no reason was every given. The staff at the gate and on the plane in both directions were not friendly or helpful at all."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "Everything was fast"
Cons: "emtertinment screens in the front Row couldn’t turn Iran’s it was a midnight flight."
Pros: "nice plane. good service good job of getting our missing bags to us."
Cons: "delays on both ends. luggage did not arrive with us on either end"
Pros: "United is an OK airline, but their planes are old and not comfortable, entertainment is inexistent since it has old and bad screens and everything is paid, better to have your own tablet."
Cons: "Seats aren't comfortable, airplanes too old, food is bad, crew members don't have the service as Asian or Middle east airlines."
Cons: "Waiting in the airport for 8 hours."
Pros: "The flight was full. I was upgraded to an exit row seat which was wonderful."
Pros: "Departed early for an early arrival which was pleasant."
Cons: "It was fine, roomie since I had my own seat section to myself"
Cons: "Flight delayed three hours because of malfunctioning fuel valve . United needs to figure out how do identify the problem I had of time to allow more time to fix"
Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"
Pros: "Was excellent i like thank you"
Cons: "Nothing al contrario all excellent"
Pros: "comfortable and on time"
Pros: "Smiling attendants."
Cons: "After buying alcohol in Guatemala, at the duty free shop, the workers at the shop taped the small boxed jars in bubble wrap - not, I discovered in an official duty free bag. So security stopped me in Houston, I went back to the United counter where they were going to charge me $15 to send it to Sacramento. I didn't spend the money. Dissapointing."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "I fly a lot. Other airlines do pretty much everything better. Only thing that was slightly better was the boarding process."
Cons: "the boarding process is horrible and feels rude. The design of the united gates is horrible, the long lines block others walking by. The lack of enough overhead space for carryon's is obnoxious. Overall very disappointing."
Cons: "No one notified me that my trip was cancelled I found out myself and then had to rebook after waiting two and a half hours on hold for someone at United for assistance no one ever answered"
Pros: "I loved the pilot taking time to greet my boys and give them wings! My boys loved sitting in the co-pilot's seat and hearing "the plane talk." Once we got to our seats, the flight attendants were very helpful and kind and we, actually, landed early! Yaaayyy! My boys won't forget their flight to Houston because of the cool female and male pilots they met while traveling. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did NOT like how the seats are grouped in twos. I flew with two small children who could only sit together and I had to sit by myself and watch them; which was very hard. If I could change anything about my flight, I would change the age of children who need to purchase seats to four and up as most children under 4 want to sit with their mothers, so why should I pay for a seat they will not be using?"
Pros: "No layover and the guy was nice to sit all 3 of us together."
Cons: "Unorganized for boarding, unorganized for check in, no snacks, no meals available on flight or at the airport due to it being a late flight."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Arriving in the states"
Cons: "Charging 28$ to check one bag on an international flight? When did that change and why? I will fly somebody else from now on. What greed!"
Cons: "I had to wait 16 hours, it was a serious delay"
Cons: "Gate attendant recommended we check bags because overheads were full, but there were multiple empty overheads when we entered. This caused us an extra delay when we landed."
Pros: "On time flight and no problems at all"
Cons: "The plane was having some air conditioner issues but the flight crew informed every one of the problem and what they were doing to fix it. They also came around with water very quickly for everyone to help cool them down. It was either push forward and wait for it to cool down once we got in the air or change planes, I was totally ok with how they handled it."
Cons: "UNITED employees are very rude"
Pros: "The flight had no delays and boarding and flight went smoothly."
Cons: "The crew were not very polite and in some instances rude."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not entertainment"
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself. I try to use the liegjt above my seat to call for another staff and this lady yelled NO No No you have to stand up and get it yourself. Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"
Pros: "Flight was on time, except that we had to wait a few minutes for more oxygen to be boarded because the flight was completely flow (overbook in fact)."
Cons: "Both my daughter's and my seats were broken. We were not given seats until just before boarding, luckily they were together."
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "Got to flight on time"
Cons: "Everything good"
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."
Pros: "Polite crew, very helpful"
Cons: "Legroom seemed so very tiny. My husband is fairly tall and long-legged, and has had knee trouble, The seat-back position of the chair in front made a normal sitting position impossible for him."
Pros: "Arrived to find the flight was canceled due to mechanical problems. The airline was prompt to provide alternative flight arrangements. I taxied from BWI to IAD and took a different flight. The airline provided free lunch meal and transportation was covered as well."
Cons: "Dead battery on plane. Delayed flight caused missed connection. No hotel voucher. Sit in terminal all night."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours sitting in tight space on the plane"
Pros: "All fly is in good plan"
Pros: "They got us on this flight (the last one to SNA for the day) after we missed our original connecting flight due to delays on the Frankfurt to Houston flight."
Cons: "Two hours Delay not good"
Pros: "The only thing i lkied about the flight was that they delivered my bag even though it came out 3 days later"
Cons: "I had a really bad flight my flight was supposed to be a 8hrs flight n i got home 14hrs later also they forgot my bag n they delivered to me 3 days later i was really disappointed"
Cons: "Need to pay for movies. We need at least some free channels. Also would like to see the map of where the plane is, as it used to be few years ago"
Cons: "Free entertaiment. Not only pay"
