My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!

Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."
Cons: "Add entertainment and outlets. Supposed to use personal device to watch but then no battery when landing and need to find your ride home."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Be on time!"
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Maybe had a flight crew on time and a plane that wasn’t 30 years old"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The media was not working. The eating table was broken . I made a complaint to the flight attendant snd she just said “ we apologize “. Terrible and old flight. Travel from Rome to Charlotte which is too long to have that type of issues"
Pros: "N\a"
Cons: "My flight was late, so I was in a rush to get my connection."
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."

Pros: "comfortable seating, lots of movie choices. food and drink selections were nice.Galley snack choices were underwhelming"
Cons: "Staff was fair, but nothing compared to the service on JAL from CA to Tokyo. Very loud throughout the flight pushing the drink cart through the 8 Business Class rows instead of just delivering drinks to the 32 people in the section. Once the initial food & beverage service was complete, the service practically disappeared unless i sought them out in the galley."
Cons: "Asked for ginger ale, was not given one"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Nothing it totally messed us up"
Cons: "We missed our 1night in Rome-had to go home and come back the next day-we missed our train tickets and hotel in Rome and it made our trip a lot shorter!"

Cons: "Bogus reservation captured via Kayak!!!"
Pros: "Early!!"
Cons: "The snacks."
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "Paid extra for window seat in exit row-- but there was no window so the experience was like being in a dark space capsule. Very disappointing. At least there was unlimited legroom. Waited for 30 minutes to get luggage at LAX so giving it a low "boarding" rating"
Pros: "overall service was good as expected."
Cons: "overalll service was as expected."
Pros: "Nice crew, very reasonable cost. Didn’t like the “no overhead access” but worth it for the money I saved."

Cons: "Crew was incredibly unfriendly."
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks. Flight was late"
Cons: "Had to wait 4 hours inside a tiny plane while taxing in DCA before taking off. Crew offered water just once during this 4 hr delay inside a plane. The flight was supposed to be 45 min so most of the passengers weren't prepared for it. Terrible. Most of the people on the plane lost their connections."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no personal tv in each seat in the international route"
Pros: "The flight boarded really quickly with absolutely excellent service from the flight crew. The pilots and crew were so considerate, and helpful. They totally took care of all of us. From the time I got on to the flight to the time I got off the crew were there to make sure I was taken care of."

Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "The crew definitely needs to be changed. There needs to be hostesses who are more attentive and actually care about their passengers."
Cons: "The flight left late but the delay was made up for in the air."
Pros: "arrived alive"
Cons: "If you're remotely claustrophobic this is not the flight or aircraft you want to be in. When the flight was booked and paid for I was under the impression that I would have a seat on the plane. As it turned out in order to board the plane I had to pay extra to secure a seat. If this is not a "bait and switch" operation I don't know what would qualify."
Pros: "AM staff was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and crowded. Thankful you had a great intercom system and staff spoke clearly with easy to follow instructions."
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "No comment"
Cons: "No food or drink given to me. Deliberately ignored by crew."
Pros: "I liked that you continue to work on things to get me there but it did not happen."
Cons: "I expected that since I had been delayed by your plane not being ready and having mechanical problems that I would be put on first standby. There were eight people that got on and two of us that did not. After a long day with over three hours of delays and then another four hours of standby I was exhausted."
Pros: "Nothing will never book with aa again"
Cons: "Everything terrible no internet no tv no food not even to buy. 2 hours sitting on plan with 2 babies before taking off then another hour in circles waiting to land. Girl on plane with loose dog up and down aisle and more"

Service was great

My wife and I were re-routed via Zurich, and I am glad the lady who did this at check-in noticed asked us for the right option. She confided in us that the flight to Newark was full, and I wondered why United had overbooked us in the first place.

I spend over 30 hours on my flight to Krakow instead of 14

Average flight...

Check-in was slow but due to all the covid protocals

Pros: "It was meh...."
Cons: "I got no notification that the flight was going to be 1 hour earlier"
Pros: "Airplanes, entertainment, boarding, check in"
Cons: "Food, conections"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Cons: "We didn’t have food on our flight, but ordered it at a cost. We didn’t get the food or pay for it."
Cons: "We were 3 hours lake due to a mechanical problem. We missed our connection in Barcelona. We received no support from United. Left on our own in a foreign country and had to scramble to rebook ourselves at considerable extra expense. Totally unacceptable!"
Pros: "Excellent crew, really liked large overhead bin capacity on this 737-800, and excellent boarding."
Cons: "United apparently insists on making entertainment available only through its United app and personal devices. That may be OK for lots of passengers, but we prefer the entertainment options available on almost every other airline that flies internationally and long distance domestic flights."
Pros: "My economy plus seat was good (once I finally got it) and for all the hassle they did free tv for the whole plane. THey found a new plane FAST!"
Cons: "They changed gates last minute - plane was in for maintenance and slight delay - then cancelled that plane - did the series of 15 minute additional delays. They found a new plane - changed the gates (big distance) again - and 'the computer' had reseated 1/2 the plane. DISTASTER to fix."
Pros: "Comfort was fair"
Cons: "It was delayed - enough to miss the flight"
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "Selection of films and TV"
Cons: "Late boarding, but no apology. Drinks service, but no snacks"
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Pros: "The crew were competent, friendly and helpful. The back of seat entertainment was very good, with a lot of new releases. When the flight was delayed the pilot did come around and speak to passengers, which I appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and we were not given any information about what was going on."
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Movie kept crashing and I had to restart the app"
Pros: "The service excellent on the plane."
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly"
Cons: "There was no free in-flight entertainment available on the tv screens. Half of the screens didn't work."
Pros: "Pushed out on time and made it home early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were non existent. 2 water services in a 4 hour flight is ridiculous."
Pros: "Exit row seat. 18A"
Cons: "No tv, not loving the waffle cookie."
Cons: "The United Boarding Agent repeatedly warned about the "SMALL" carry on compartments on the CJR aircraft and literally insisted we tag our carry ons to be set aside on boarding even though we knew they fitted OK. AS A RESULT when we got to Calgary we had to wait at the over size luggage racks for our carry ons to be delivered instead of them being set up for us as we left the aircraft which is normal!! Very frustrating!!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."
Pros: "Acommodating ground crew."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "I fly about four times a year if not more. Always delays, missing my connections or running like a maniac trying to get to my connection. BUT. This was the first time in a very long time that I actually boarded on time."
Cons: "The crew members for some reason had attitudes. The two/ plus hours in the plane , not one cracked a smile..One,literally threw a tiny bag of snacks on my tray, which bounced off and she proceeded to step on them .... oh well. I'll take a not-so-nice hostess over delays and missing connections . Maybe I'll find an airlines that can give me both?"
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight Attendant was REALLY late. We had to delay boarding to wait for her. 15 minutes. then it took longer to wait for gate check -- green tag bag - than if I had checked the bag. when we finally got the gate check bags and headed through customs the checked bags were all on the carousel. And I have Nexus. So Customs was 3 minutes. NOT a good process. Figure it out YYC international terminal!!!"
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Pros: "Very good"
Pros: "I had left my laptop at security and the woman at the on board desk (wish i knew her name) changed my flight to go on a later flight to West Palm Beach instead so I could get my laptop and continue on my way to Florida. She didn't even charge me anything extra! The West Palm Flight wasn't full and I was able to get closer to my destination going to West Palm Florida. The flight was smooth and the snacks were great too!"
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Pros: "Captain was good and gave us info about their problems. First crew (before unexpected stop) was very good. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Second crew was flip and not helpful (especially announcer). Seemed like a joke to them that they were extending our trip by several hours. No movies for whole period in the sky (12 hours). Trip was bumpy. Seats were not comfortable. Food is much worse than British Airways or Air France. Typical United experience - poor."
Cons: "The gate was so small there was not enough seating for the number of passengers. That coupled with the flight delay made for a bad experience at the airport."
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "We arrived safely along with our baggage."
Cons: "Major weather issues so delayed boarding and flight. That's understandable, but poor, often rude, gate operations. Often no, inaccurate, or misleading information. They seemed confused, as if this were the first time event."
Pros: "Great flight attendant"
Pros: "The flight is on time."
