Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
"The boarding process went very quickly, faster than I’ve ever seen boarding occur. I understand the need for efficiency, but the groups were called so quickly that there was a lot of chaos at the gate and people running through the airport. Then we all sat on the plane for a while, which seemed silly."
Cons: "The cabin was to cold 🥶"
Cons: "Change your fist class cabin. If we’re paying that much for a 4 hour flight we should be in a better cabin. The flight from Lax to O’Hare was great but the plane coming back is old and ragged"
Pros: "I had a great seat"
Cons: "Attention to detail by the gate attendant who totally missed that I was boarding the wrong flight"
Pros: "I got an unexpected box lunch. Food was good. Thanks."
Cons: "Seats were cramped. A little more elbow room would be welcome."
Pros: "Crew was nice and comfort was okay."
Cons: "There was no internet most of the flight it only worked for the first 20-30 minutes of the flight then they tried resetting it but it didn’t work for the rest of the flight."
Cons: "boarding delay, we must arrived at 13:48hrs, but our flight return to miami due to problems in navigation, we have to await at airport and arrived at Guatemala at 18:30hrs."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."
Cons: "There was a delay on the departure"
Pros: "The seat was comfy, even though the flight was delayed in takeoff by 45 min. It was nice to hear from the captain. It makes you feel more like you're having a good experience."
Cons: "Delays happen. But snacks offered during a delay known to be longer than 30 min would've made many passengers happier. It's hard to stay happy when other people around you are complaining."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Food was payable so should not even be a criteria here We had to collect our luggage coming from portugal to check them in Again in Miami. Really a burden. After 20 hours flying this was really annoying. Again Iberia saving money at the cost of clients"
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. I was stressed the whole time because my flight was late in Abilene and was going to cause me to miss my flight in Dallas to Portland possibly and I had to run through Dallas to make it on time."
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The air conditioner on the plane."
Pros: "Service was inattentive. Worst I have experienced in a long time. I’m traveling in first class — I believe economy had much better service."
Cons: "Inattentive service."
Cons: "The plane was late"
Pros: "Crew is very nice, we were on time and baggage didn't get lost for once."
Cons: "Seats are simply too tight, not enough space for carry-on, and boarding procedures are a joke."
Pros: "Courteous staff! Very accommodating."
Cons: "The company did great, no complaints."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient. The service was fine. The pilot was informative."
Pros: "None of the experience was pleasant"
Cons: "First flight was delayed causing us to miss the 2nd flight and we ended sleeping on a chair at the airport waiting for a morning flight. AMERICAN AIRLINES didn't even have the decency to put us in a hotel for the night due to their delay. Then they added a 2nd lay over which was delayed for hours also. Traveling was to visit my mother who had cancer and I was sick so this made the trip even more distasteful."
Pros: "AA staff in Guatemala are great, everything else about AA is bellow any other airline, definitely the worst airline."
Cons: "AA is the worst airline in everything, but worst of all is the AA staff attitude in Miami airport, AA staff in Guatemala are great."
Pros: "Nothing, American Airlines is the worst major airline now."
Cons: "The staff in Miami Airport is really bad, worst attitude I have seen, old planes, not comfortable, definetly the worst major airline now."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "I wish more food"
Pros: "Smooth transition with our connecting flight"
Cons: "Plane didn’t feel very clean. Our tray tables were dirty Seats were not very comfortable. Food could do with a little help"
Pros: "Smooth ride and free wine"
Pros: "Arriving on time"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant Arrived safely"
Cons: "Seats are way too cramped especially for my broad shoulders. Beverage service was minimal"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early.T"
Cons: "This was by far the most turbulent flight I have ever been on. Perhaps it was due to the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia, but only toward the end did the flight become smooth. I am surprised that a better flight path couldn't have been chosen."
Cons: "Waiting for the bathroom I overheard a flight attendant telling the other one that she "wished that when she grew old she wasn't so damn stupid like some of the passengers on this flight". She wasn't even trying to be silent, which I thought was a bit shameless on her part and mostly why I'm writing this review. (Maybe she wasn't smart enough to think some of us understood English?) Very unprofessional."
Cons: "No screens in each seat."
Pros: "What did you like? The crew was extremely polite and greeted us when we entered the cabin. Willing to assist us if we needed assistance. they got us seated straight away, and we were off, they brought the beverage cart out straight away, offered us a snack of pretzels and a drink. it was pretty quiet on the flight a lot of tired people who just came from an international flight and just wanting to get home. both flights were on time. I haven't one bad thing to say about American Airlines"
Pros: "No major issues with the flight itself, see below for MAJOR issues with check-in and checking bags."
Cons: "The organization with American Airlines at Charles de Gaulle was absolutely pathetic. I understand it's a busy airport, but NONE of the other airlines had lines like American did. Then by the time you get up to an American airline employee, incompetence was written all over their faces. The straw that broke the camel's back was that they insisted on separating my partner and me while doing security questions, meanwhile other parties who were together were not separated (LGBT discrimination). This pushed us back 10 minutes--we were separated and he was having to wait for me after the questioning to get my bag checked, too. I'll add that we arrived to the airport with over 2 hours to spare before our flight which should have been more than enough time. We probably would have missed the flight if not for a few decent Charles de Gaulle employees who bumped us though lines at customs when they realized the time crunch, no thanks to anyone with American Airlines. I heard so many saying they will not use American Airlines again, and how saving a few dollars was not worth the headache. Flying is already stressful enough, don't make it that much worse."
Pros: "it was a reasonably priced flight, so I guess having to put up with the delay and a cramped plane is what you should expect"
Cons: "the fact that we were delayed for over 3 hours (mechanical? then switched plane). The plane itself was really cramped - I realize you have to put up with that on domestic flights, but international, really??? American should figure out other ways to cut costs."
Pros: "We boarded on time and arrived early. What more can ya ask for? Fairly easy ride. Free entertainment on board, movies and shows! Awesome."
Cons: "The speaker that the pilot used was static-y, hard to understand. No free wifi option. Rough landing."
Pros: "The lax to atl flight was on a much better plane with all the modern features to make the 5hr flight comfortable."
Cons: "The atl to lax was an old plane and wasn't comfortable for a 5hr flight"
Pros: "On time and smooth flight"
Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."
Cons: "Airline had no gates at destination and made us sit on board for an hour after landing. Should have been protactive and found air stairs to disembark instead of forcing passengers stuck on hot plane."
Pros: "The plane was really nice."
Cons: "The food was not good."
Pros: "Great flight crew price was right and I will travel American again!"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and efficient. Schedules met my needs."
Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"
Pros: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Not the most pleasant crew. Also, entertainment system has unresponsive screens. Must repeat touching until it gets your selection. Others said the same thing. Sticky system apparently. Food was surprisingly digestible."
Pros: "The crew etc were amazing. Rated food and entertainment as 1 star because there was no inapplicable rating. I did not eat any food. There was no entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "The fact I made the flight"
Cons: "Nearly missing the flight that my luggage did not arrive with me that I had to go back to airport 6 hours later to get it!!!!!"
Cons: "This flight was canceled 9 minutes before we were supposed to board. I was rescheduled twice more and ended up at a DIFFERENT destination, 8 hours after I was supposed to arrive. I will not be flying American Airlines anytime soon."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "Both flights each way where delayed significantly"
Cons: "Ladies in the front desk are super RUDE yes I said super not just rude! I WILL NEVER book with American Airlines again. Worst customer service I have ever encountered. When I left from Fresno onto when I left from Pheonix!"
Pros: "Crew was excellent seat was as usual"
Cons: "Something to Fill your tome a little more"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."

Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours."
Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "The United flight had a great entertainment package (movies, tv shows, etc). The flight attendant who sat in front of us was awesome,and fun to talk to. She gave us some great tips about things to do while in Athens. The food was good (for airline food)."
Cons: "The flight from Newark to Athens was interesting. The flight changed gates at the last minute. The plane was towed to the new gate, then we found out that it was going to be delayed an additional hour due to required maintenance checks. Actually, I don't mind the additional maintenance checks, I want to arrive alive! We arrived in Athens 90 minutes after our expected time. We got seats in the exit row, however, we couldn't really enjoy the extra legroom for 2 reasons: 1) The exit hatch was right in front of my girlfriend who was sitting near the window. She couldn't extend her feet without kicking the door (I big no-no at 35,000 feet). 2) Our row was right in front of the bathrooms, so I had constant traffic bumping me in left shoulder and lines of people literally standing in front of me for the majority of the flight while waiting for their turn to use the bathroom. They are stepping on my feet constantly or passing gas in my face (I wish I was kidding)."
Pros: "Fast to board but had to wait for over an hour for a connecting flight to get on the plane."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, no in seat entertainment"
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."
Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"
Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."
Cons: "Paying for entertainment"
Cons: "They don’t care about their passengers one bit"
Cons: "Had to download the United app to watch in flight movies. Then it didn't even work. The only thing that would play were the trailers."
Pros: "The service at the automated counter was very good"
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Last time when i'm flying with United!"
Cons: "Omg, food was awful. You guys should try to eat it. I think you can't eat it. I have never eaten like this food for my life. Awful!"
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"
Cons: "The boarding process was unnecessarily complicated by United Airlines. I was made to wait right until take off time without any information while they "confirmed my visa" on which I entered the US multiple times in the past."
Pros: "tsa pre"
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."
Cons: "The temperature on the plane was awful! It was absolutely too warm and uncomfortable. On a full flight. Arrived early again, had to sit on the plane to wait for the ground crew and then had to wait over an hour for checked luggage. Again ridiculous."
Pros: "I liked nothing about this airline"
Cons: "I was not able to board the fist flight because i got there one hour before the flight left. I drove 2 hours to catch my second plane and because i did that my entire ticket was cancel forcing me to pay $341.00 to purchase another ticket"
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: "Flight staff was fantastic!"
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."
Pros: "Punctual departure, arrival ahead of schedule"
Cons: "The man in front of me thought it was obvious that he should enjoy 130% space, leaving me with 70%. I couldn't even read my magazine. I've paid full price for my seat. Slow service. Half an hour wait for baggage claim."
Cons: "Los Angeles"
Cons: "My bag didn't came with came, it was a direct flying. The air conditioned was too cold"
Cons: "I wasn't assigned a seat even when I checked in (flight was overbooked)so I felt a lot of stress that I wouldn't get a seat on the flight I had booked a few weeks prior. I called United and they could not guarantee that I would definitely have a seat."
Pros: "service on time"
Cons: "snacks very little amounr"
Pros: "It was just a nice flight stewardess were nice. just a nice time thank you guys."
Cons: "SO LATE"
Pros: "Likr the Gogo entdrtainment systrem."
Cons: "The GoGo app doesn't work with the Android phone I have"
Cons: "neither flight had a tv on it and the food was for purchase only. The flight from Portland to Chicago had a terrible flight attendent. Very rude and I could see and hear the tension between the two. Overall not a good experience."
Cons: "In an effort to maximize profit you give up comfort. I bet you could charge more if it were comfortable."
Pros: "Everything went like clockwork, the announcements, the boarding, the take off, the landing and the on time arrival. This trip was an example of how things should go."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing! My flight was scheduled for takeoff at 8:15 pm on Wednesday.I boarded my flight on two different occasions only to be informed that there were mechanical issues.that first delayed & eventually cancelled my flight. I was kept waiting and inconvenienced until 5am, when I was finally offered an alternate 12noon flight later that day as well as a comped room at a nearby hotel. My time is very valuable & limited and because of this experience my itinerary was adversely affected. I will be hard pressed to ever fly United again. Michael Aponte- Very Disappointed!"
Cons: "Please read above comments"
Pros: "Kindness of crew"
Cons: "Flights were delayed, no entertainment... Only pay-per view... No free food..."
Cons: "It took almost 15 minutes to get my bag back that I had to gate check. We were not allowed to carry on."
Cons: "United did not service the final destination so they transferred luggage to another airline and then washed their hands of it. When one of4 remained lost they did not help at all!"
Cons: "Code share between United and Air Canada, operated by Mesa. Many troubles finding the correct website. Confirmation number changed once. Terminal changed twice while we were at IAH. 1 hour late taking off, 45 minutes late landing. Missed connection in Toronto. Bags showed up in Toronto 2 hours after landing."
Pros: "Timely departure, safe timely arrival, friendly crew."
