Such an easy airport to get in and out of. Was. in my lyft in a few minutes and on my way home.
Quick boarding . Clean plane. Arrived ahead of time . Smooth flight
Usual American mechanical issues. 3 hour delay, then boarded, sat at the gate for an hour, deplaned, boarded a new plane, waited another 30 minutes before take off.
My experiences with American Airlines are usually terrible. But this was great.
My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!
Pros: "Fell asleep"
Pros: "On time flight, entertainment and food options."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "Was a great flight"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the seats were comfortable, no complaints about the flight."
Cons: "We got to the gate and I had to use the bathroom, we waited for the jet bridge to be place but there was a malfunction. I had to get up despite the plane not parked at the gate."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and friendly."
Cons: "The crew announced that there was limited food options on the flight (low supply). When a flight is 5 hours long, an adequate amount of food options should be available. Hand towels and toilet paper ran out during flight."
Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "The crew and the seats were okay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost 2 hrs. We should receive credits for that."
Cons: "Because our first flight was delayed over 4 hours we missed our connection and had to be re-booked on the only other flight that still had seats that day. We had previously booked and paid for Main Cabin extra seats in the second row that included extra leg room and free drinks. We ended in an airplane with two exit rows, one near the front and the other near the back. Our seats were right behind the rear exit row in the back of the plane. The seats did not recline and there was limited leg look because the exit row seats were aligned differently due to the crew seat next to the door. Also, the bathroom was right in front of the row in front of us and so it was busy, noisy and smelled. Obviously we didn't get our free drinks either. Now I'm having to fight with American trying to get a refund of the money we spent for the Main Cabin extra fees. The fun never stops. I will never fly American again."
Cons: "The flight from Boston was extremely delayed,but miraculasly, the boarding to conecting FinnAir flight 6, took extra 10 minutes, which gave me a chance not to catch it. Though, me and the AA rep., had to cross-run about a mile up and down the escalators at terminal 8 , my baggage was left behind and did not make a transfer to FinnAir 6. At final destination I was asked to file a lost baggage claim. If not the initial flight from Logan, everything should go smoother."
Pros: "Almost everything about the return flight was great. Check-in, legroom, flight crew, entertainment were top notch"
Cons: "I asked for specific meals for everyone on the booking but multiple customer service reps booked only 1 meal - when making bookings/changes ask if changes are for everyone or for specific passengers"
Pros: "Although boarding took a very long time because the flight was full, the flight was smooth. The touchdown was awesome."
Cons: "I can't comment on food. I didn't get any."
Pros: "Great passengers and crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight."
Cons: "3+ hour flight with no TV/ entertainment"
Pros: "Flight, crew, seats (although we paid extra for them) food were terrific."
Cons: "Nothing negative!"
Pros: "It was American Airlines flight. Some of the crew members were not very polite but majority complied with providing a good service. The plane and the flight were great. The entertainment was good too."
Cons: "Bad manners from some of the crew members like snapping fingers to get your attention. Very impolite."
Pros: "Everyone was nice. Flight left on time an landed early."
Cons: "The front row for the exit is too small. The diagram i looked at said it was an exit row on the 2nd leg of my flight. It wasnt!! Uncomortable for my legs. Im 6'3"
Cons: "Only served half people beverages. No entertainment"
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time. Also, luggage got to the carrousel quickly."
Cons: "Nothing it was a short flight and the plane was mostly empty."
Pros: "Crew was nice we."
Cons: "We were separated from our children even after we upgraded seats because they bumped us on the other flight."
Pros: "Real nice people at check in and flight crew was really nice"
Cons: "there was screens but no movies or anything"
Pros: "Had no problems. Everything went smoothly thank God."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, the boarding was super quick and the whole flight was great and comfortable. Friendly crew members. Smooth flight."
Cons: "I paid for a more comfortable seat around US200 (16L) the day prior the flight, main cabin window seat with more space.They changed planes I guess and row 16 was gone so the assigned me another one on main cabin aswell with more space (15J) but an aisle, which I hate and that was the reason why I paid for a window seat in the first place. No effort to get me a window seat within main cabin when I claimed, nor reasonable explanation on why they did the changed."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for nearly 5 hours. There was no accommodations for the delay, except for apologies. Very limited snacks were provided, but this huge delay cut into our reservations and vacation in our resort."
Cons: "Seat space very narrow and uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "Can't really say much as I slept most of the flight."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Cons: " the "group system" boarding process arranges passengers in an aleatory way making the process totally chaotic. For instance last groups are the last ones to enter the aircraft and don't easily find space for the hand luggage. They have to accommodate bags under the front seat making the already uncomfortable trip more painful. Also this process may delay the departure time.  Food service is terrible. no options, specially for kids or people with food restrictions. Not even the payed ones offer healthy food alternatives.  No comfort at all for a flight that departs little before midnight and arrives at 7 am at its destination. They forgot about the pillows and blankets you find in other airlines.  at the end, when I collected my baggage I realized 1 wheel was missing from one of my suitcases. I informed the airline and 3 days later I receive an email saying that the airline is not responsible for damages that include wheels and other "baggage accessories" I did not rate the flight poor because at least it manages to arrive to its final destination..."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Cons: "Check in crew were awful. Told us that there was a sick passenger on the plane and asked if my friend and I would volunteer to take a flight out the next day, that star alliance would put us up in a hotel over night, pay for our evening meal and fly us business class in the morning, that all we had to do was wait at our departure gate And someone would call our name before boarding. We accepted, waited patiently, then we were scolded for having our checked bags with us and told multiple different conflicting stories about how we were to board our flight, that volunteers were no longer needed. I checked multiple times with check-in crew to confirm that the scenario was a go. They confirmed each time, so I canceled my accommodations for the evening in Lima. The change up at the gate left for a big mess to clean up. The gate crew kept arguing hat they never told us to cancel our Lima plans. But that was besides the point. The point was, they told us one thing, there was a major breakdown in communication among check in and gate crew as well as between all crew and me and no crew member took ownership or apologized for the flub up. And I'd like to point out, this was not a language barrier issue, all flight crew spoke English fluently. One crew member said all volunteers were obtained and they no longer needed us, another said that the sick person flying (the initial issue) was no longer flying, so no volunteers were needed. crew never owned that. they suggested that it was our issue that we canceled our plans. We were able to fix, but incredibly disappointing and frustrating experience."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Flight to Chicago which was at the same gate took way too long to board. Could not figure out the problem. Took WAY too long to get wheelchairs to unload passengers off the plane that was to take us to Dallas. Sat on the tarmac for additional 20 min. Delay cost me an additional 2 1/2 hours later in Dallas and FIVE hours in London airport!!"
Pros: "I messed up royally, as a result, I missed my flight to Miami. However, they were able to put me on the available flight without the extra cost to me. Thanks a lot."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Flight is only an hour so not much to get wrong."
Cons: "We were delayed and I felt like information could have been shared with passengers in a better way."
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.
My screen didn’t work at my seat. Communication at Toronto airport between the two flights was non-existent. We were not given TSA precheck, we weren’t told we were going through US customs in Toronto, we were given instructions like go into that room and sit down. Really, really poor quality airport. Walkways were turned off, poor air conditioning, lack of food services, etc. I will try to avoid Toronto airport in future travels.
Pros: "The crew was super nice and did the best it could with what is given to them."
Cons: "No space, super gathered, big chance of spread. Delayed take off"
Cons: "There was no proper social distancing and safety measures followed. The plane was packed and the flight was almost an hour longer due to excessive cargo according (to the pilot)."
Pros: "Team worked well together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for my device. An educational label would help."
Pros: "In flight experience was ok."
Cons: "It was difficult to learn gate information, was provided at the last minute, which is tough in a long airport like Munich. Airline few us into an airport that was the center of a political protest which was known at the time of takeoff. We should have been warned as it required 4 hours to leave the Barcelona airport, walking away from it 3 miles in the rain."
Cons: "Although in first class, the service was subpar. The attendant did not smile, told me to look in the magazine when I asked if there were any dishes without cheese . She left an empty glass on my tray for the entire flight!"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding and the flight on time."
Cons: "One of the bathrooms was not working properly so everyone had to do with two bathrooms."
Pros: "United Airlines kept changing our flights and seating assignments even though we paid for 2 round trip tickets 4 months in advance. The ticket agents at the gate were very helpful in making sure my companion and I could get seats together."
Cons: "Our luggage got left behind in Chicago. The luggage finally arrived at our destination 5 hours after we did."
Pros: "Since there was an empty seat next to me, I was able to spread out a bit."
Cons: "Had to pay for entertainment. WiFi sucks."
Pros: "Great video entertainment selection"
Cons: "Being in a middle seat"
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: "Desk personnel were helpful."
Cons: "Desk personnel were helpful. Experience of boarding was confusing. Layover was very unpleasant. A six hour period, not much help in getting to a counter to change. It would’ve been good to have some direction and advice, even though the boarding area"
Pros: "They actually checked sizes of some “carryons.” Of course, it’s a cash cow for the carrier. The checkers should get 20% of the fee collected for checking oversized carryons at the gate."
Cons: "There are faster, more efficient ways to load and unload passengers."
Pros: "Flew First Class, so: - Got to eat an drink good stuff... - Plane/seats were clean"
Cons: "But it could have been Economy because: - Had to ask for everything, even a greeting and a welcome aboard drink - Cabin Crew's attitude was very poor; the looks we got! - There was no on-board entertainment or Internet available - Crew gave us outdated customs forms so everyone was delayed because we had to locate proper forms and fill the out upon arrival"
Pros: "Good food, entertainment options, communication from pilot"
Cons: "none of the flight attendants seemed to be friendly- literally all of them were neutral or slightly rude at best. Not impressed."
Pros: "Uneventful, as expected"
Cons: "The stewardess was Young and NOT the epitome of the Friendly skies. She lived upto a my expectatuons of a stereotypical Millenial! She served us, but not well. Not what I have come to expect from the Friendly skies. All others have been gooD or better."
Cons: "I am pregnant and took a 12-hour flight. The flight crew did not provide me with food for 11 hours of that flight. When I asked the flight attendants for food they told me they had none, and it was my fault I didn't bring anything to eat. then I saw them handing out food to business class. I understand that I did not shell out the class to fly business class, but it's not okay to not feed a pregnant woman. Additionally, when I was flying form you were not allowed t bring water onto the plane. The flight attendants only provided me one small water bottle an two small cups of water. I asked for more but they said no :( I will never fly United again"
Cons: "Trail mix was gross, the child sitting next to me spilled her soda all over my pants and throughout the flight kept purposely touching even after I and her mother told her to stop."
Pros: "I wasn't so cramped this trrip"
Cons: "Took forever to land freaked me out a lil bit"
Cons: "United was unorganized and they acted as if these cancellations were no big deal. Those two days that we missed could have been spent at work. Now I have wasted PTO time that I can't get back and wasted money at our resort that I wasn't able to get back. One of the agents at Bradley International Airport Sammy put her hands on my friend and screamed in her face USING FOUL LANGUAGE with a line full of people and their children waiting to check in. It was unprofessional and uncalled for. We did get police and management involved. The overall experience was terrible."
Cons: "Too much time taxing at the gate."
Cons: "Cancelled my flight because of "weather" so no financial liability for keeping me in Chicago for an extra day - Flights going in and out like crazy!!! As far as I am concerned, United are big fat liars."
Cons: "Plane delayed due to maintenance at the hub airport of Newark and no gates upon arrival in DFW at midnight."
Pros: "Great crew and flight attendants, kept us informed of everything, very helpful and prompt on all questions and requests. Movie selection was impressive. Boarding was efficient and flight even left early. Surprisingly pleasant experience in economy for a long flight."
Cons: "Having to pay for my luggage."
Pros: "I liked that the flight was on time"
Cons: "I did not like the absence of much food for breakfast on economy"
Pros: "I survived."
Cons: "Just before takeoff we had to abort and the crew slammed on the brakes. It was entirely frightening. We sat on the runway for a long time after that while the crew did not have clear answers for what was happening or why. Several things happened while we were on that plane that were unnerving for the passengers. So much so that at least one passenger threw up. Very scary. We did end up taking that plane on to our destination two hours later, but it was the worst flight experience of my life."
Pros: "I took 4 different flights and all the crews seemed to all be moody."
Pros: "The flight itself was great.. However the experience at the airport was terrible.. After placing several calls prior to my departure date to confirm that my 40 inch TV was ok for transportation , it wasn't until I got to the airport to find out that I was unable to take the TV or the TV stand.. I live in Philadelphia and had nowhere to leave it causing me to give it to a stranger in order to make my flight . I am very distraught that the information indicating there was an embargo restricting the transportatione of TV greater 32 inches or boxes to Montego Bay was not given during any of those calls.. I don't understand why that information was not sent in an email prior.. On top of that I placed a call to customs in Montego Bay and was adviced that the embargo is enforced by the airline not customs... If I could some how get some answers regarding this I would appreciate it..."
Pros: "Entertainment was offered on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was 90 minutes late Crew took an additional 40 minutes to get passengers with disabilities off the plane. There's no reason it should have taken that long. After I paid for entertainment, the crew announced it would be free for everyone since we were so late. Crew member was super-grouchy. Seats couldn't be smaller if they tried to sit you on a postage stamp. I'm a tiny person, but this is ridiculous!"
Pros: "Aisle seat made it tokerable"
Cons: "Crew seemed grumpy and not happy to be working. Snacks was small bag of mix and no choice."
Pros: "Connections were on time. Staff was nice."
Cons: "Wish I had a shorter wait in Denver. I had a 3-hour wait between my Las Vegas landing and take off for Omaha. Very tired."
Pros: "No flight delays!"
Pros: "Didn't like that we have to pay for everything like food & tv"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight"
Cons: "No pretzels or cookies. One of the flight attendants was a bit over the top trying to be cool. It came off as obnoxious."
Pros: "Crew were nice and the seats were comfortable."
Cons: "No entertainment. At the last min board many had to check their carry on."
Pros: "The crew was extremely helpful on both flights. This made the whole experience very pleasant."
Pros: "I updated to first class and it was wonderful. I loved the extra space and services I received! I will only fly first class from now on."
Pros: "Outlets at all the seats."
Cons: "There was no entertainment at all, which would be fine if they tell people ahead of time. This is a long flight if you don't come prepared."
Pros: "Fast puddle jumper from CMH to IAD."
Cons: "United has replaced all gate agents with contractors. It is abundantly clear. No stakes in customer service, these folks are just slightly above automated robots following scripts verbatim with poor skills speaking English."
