LGA Terminal A is terrible. Not NEARLY enough bathrooms (huge line) and very inadequate seating in small crowded waiting room.

Cons: "WiFi didn’t work well, tv had to be reset"
Pros: "Lots of room. Great crew. We left early. We arrived early."
Cons: "Food ok."
Pros: "This time within the last couple months the trip a lot better."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Entertainment System wasn’t working properly. Movies were down as were many of the channels. Although a disappointment, JetBlue is still amazing!"
Cons: "The TV plug fed out static volume and the TV worked randomly .. The Afro American flight attended gave a nasty attitude and didnt allow me to completely request my order as if she was in a rush"
Cons: "Wonderful wheel chair service."
Pros: "Really friendly and personable crew, Comfortable seats Terra blue chips"
Cons: "Seat had a sticky goo on it that I had to wipe off Coffee was not good Terra blue chip bag was too small"
Pros: "Two of the three were amazing, the other looked like a miserable person"
Cons: "The tv didn’t activate until half way home!!!"
Pros: "Staff was amazing loved every minute of flight"
Pros: "I boarded fast"
Cons: "flight attendant was moddy"
Pros: "Everything about the flight operated smooth and comfortably. Efficient boarding, surprised and delighted to have inflight entertainment for such a short flight where most other airlines use older planes without tv/movies."
Cons: "did my pre flight check in at about 3pm for my 8:50pm flight. I didnt immediately receive my boarding pass via text but figured it’d come in the next 4hrs. It didn’t and I had to go through the line for a paper pass, then at about 11pm when I was already home after my flight I received the text containing my boarding pass. Obviously a simple hiccup in an automated process but laughably pathetic in terms of delivering a simple service for paying customers that’s designed to save you, JetBlue, time and money"
Pros: "Free wine , free coffee, quick flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Wi fi and the tv made the time pass quick , seats were big , flight was quick"
Pros: "The seating space was just right, and thanks for the complimentary Sprite."

Pros: "Good snacks, was switched to an “even more space” seat"
Cons: "Changed gates without notification, got at email with delay notification but no information that the gate was moved from 5 to 25 until I went up to ask the desk staff since my departure wasn’t showing on the screen. Very loud engine for some reason. No USB a chargers on plane is old school"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The delays, and the crew had no real answers they just kept pushing the time back very poor communication"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Checked in online, but no gate was assigned. When I asked the person at the desk what gate I was to board at, he looked up the information as if I was asking him for the access code Chase's bank vault. He didn't even write it down even thought he had a pen in his hand. Apparently, at customers, we are not suppose to get this information and it's a burden on the employees to give it. Again the flight was late and while I know it was due to weather, we were seated in the plane and sat at the gate for more than an hour. Apparently, we were not cleared to be given an update. Once again, the speakers at the seat didn't work. Apparently, this is a constant problem with JetBlue"
Pros: "Night masked"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as hell , she looked like she didn’t know what she was doing"
Pros: "On time and very friendly crew."
Pros: "Wow - perfect trip from booking to arrival in FLL. Easy website, luggage and assigned seat included. Helpful ground crew in BUF. And the best free inflight wifi. I will book again."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "By the time we boarded in row 8 all overhead bins were full thru row 16. Made getting off more difficult when we had to get our carryons"
Pros: "Excellente"
Cons: "Staff, legroom bterra chips"
Pros: "We made it to our destination in one piece so that's good I guess"
Cons: "Delayed over 3hrs. Didn't get to sit with my wife. They switched movies 30min into the movie that I was enjoying. Attendants seemed annoyed at life in general."
Cons: "A woman was boarding the plane with two babies and clearly struggling to get to the back of the plane. When she could not handle it anymore she asked one of the flight attendants to help her. She was refused assistance by her. Then the flight attendant came to the front of the plane laughing uncontrollably say, "OMG, did you see her having a meltdown...she was asking me to help." She proceeded to laugh for the next 20 minutes repeating that the woman was helpless. I was disgusted by the flight attendant's behavior and attitude."
Pros: "The extra room. The staff was friendly."
Cons: "There could be additional snacks available especially on a flight that’s over 3 hrs. I had a short lay over in JFK and wasn’t able to buy a meal and very limited snacks on board so I left home 2:00 to be early and arrived at my destination at 2:30pm with only chips to eat"
Pros: "On time departure. Lot of seat room and good snacks."
Cons: "All was good. Just be sure the planes are ready to go bef it goes to the gate and passengers get in then to hear that there is a mechanical issue."
Pros: "I like the new collaborative coffee option at the gate and the get-your-own-snacks option upon boarding."
Pros: "Quick flight, television, reasonably price"
Pros: "Everything was on-time and we arrived early with no problems. Wasn't expecting even snacks/drinks on a 45 minute flight, but they served them. Crew was even more friendly and helpful than usual."
Cons: "E-mailed me advertising a free drink on BOS-->LGA flights, but I didn't see that."
Cons: "My flight to New York was delayed 4 hours. My flight home to Orlando was delayed almost 3 hours. That is absolutely ridiculous and makes me never want to fly JetBlue again."
Cons: "The boarding pass machine was broken, almost missed my flight. The customer services was rude."
Pros: "Ticket prices were very affordable. Check in was quick, smooth & easy. Flight was on time. I loved the leg room, the fact that snacks are unlimited & the crew was just super courteous."
Cons: "That my tv & wifi did not work properly on my return flight"
Pros: "JetBlue out of Marine Air Terminal at LGA is a game changer for this New Yorker. It made our lives unbelievably easier - no airport madness, quick security, friendly staff, and timely departure and arrival. It also makes it super easy to get a ride or rideshare (such as Lyft) to pick you up."
Pros: "Service and friendly staff"
Pros: "Service was phenomenal"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Plane was delayed...they inform passengers of the delay, then set back to the original time. Horrible. This airline stinks."
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "My seat did not go back, and sitting upright the entire flight was very comfortable. When I asked the fight attendant about the seat, he said seats do not go back forward of the exit row. Had I known this, I would not have booked my seat. This information was not made clear to me when I arranged the flight. I am looking to book another flight R/T from Boston to NYC and would appreciate compensation for this upcoming flight."
Pros: "I arrived early for my flight and JetBlue offered to put me on standby for another flight. I got home 3hrs earlier than expected!! Awesome!!"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Smell in the air"
Pros: "the atmosphere, appearance of lga, the wheelchair service attendants-kind, courteous and attentive."
Pros: "the food options and staff"
Cons: "i reserved two seats together and when we checked in we were sitting apart."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. I like the Dunkin Donuts coffee"
Cons: "My overhead light and tv we're both not working. The stewardess was rude when I brought it up. Told me to move to the next empty seat dismissively. I bought a window seat on purpose and did not want to move. My concerns were left unaddressed"
Pros: "Overhead space"
Cons: "departure was very late same thing happen coming back they were late,but the most upsetting was that they lie insulting our inteligent."
Pros: "Service"
Pros: "miss the flight, plane was at the tarmic, door was not close, supperson supervisor was in the plane but gate was close, person at the gate did not try to contect the supervisor, thats not helpful at all"
Cons: "Flight delayed and couldn't land at la guardia. Had to get a taxi to get back to laguardia because it landed inJFK"
Cons: "JetBlue cancelled my flight and charged me for the luggage. I wrote them and asked for a refund. Still have not heard back. Person who booked flight guaranteed they would not charge me for a flight that they cancelled."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours. Then when we arrived to NYC the airplane sat on the runway another hour. Total delay times ran more than 3 hours. I don't mind delays ... they are part of travel life ... however I expect exceptional service or some type of credit or a massive warm good bye when De-boarding the plane. None of the above took place. Keep in mind. I NEVER complain and I also never write reviews. This time it felt necessary .... hopefully someone will actually listen to this valid complaint and make changes."

They made us check carry ons despite the entire aircraft overhead space being empty

Departed 25 min late with no explanation. Arrival time was very off due to late departure but would have appreciated a better estimate.

I liked the timeliness of the departure and arrival, and the crew were good. The turbulence was rough, though.

The whole experience was great. Boarding is so orderly. The staff is super helpful. The wifi works great the whole flight so I was able to text for the entire flight. The best part was that it was orderly even when we were exiting the flight.

Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Pros: "Plane seemed well maintained and newer. Crew seemed friendly."
Pros: "The crew and entertainment options are great. Relatively comfortable seats by today's standards."
Cons: "Literally any of our flights could have been on time. None were."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and departure."
Cons: "Refreshments and up to date airplane. Plane seem outdated and very loud. Flight attendants could use a friendlier demeanor"
Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 8 hours. Both the pilots and flight attendants timed out at different times. After boarding we had to deplane because crew was timing out. Had to fly new crew in from Atlanta. Was in airport from 10:50am to 8pm with airlines offering a bag of chips and water."
Pros: "Crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat assignment at gate was inconvenient b/c jt dissuades you from taking a bathroom break before the flight. They can't prefer that you go on the plane."
Pros: "I fly a lot, and I am very impressed with the level of consistency that Delta has offered the last couple of months. This flight didn’t disappoint. The crew was particularly friendly"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of-10/10"
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Cons: "Seat assignment for me and my traveling companion was done at gate. We had to sit in 2 different rows."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Cons: "Terrible flight ? Captain lied to to us and kept saying two more minutes 5 more minutes , etc Stuck for 4 hours . Plane had a problem and captain said it was glued and that was suppose to be like that"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled after multiple delays and waiting 8 hours"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, cabin was clean."
Cons: "No Tvs"
Cons: "We were already very delayed, the flight crew was not nice"
Cons: "Choice of healthier snack"
Pros: "Flight attendant in first class was amazing."
Pros: "Zee was our flight attendant and she was absolutely wonderful. Personable, attentive, and she made sure each and every person on the plane was comfortable and happy, going so far as to move solo passengers to empty rows so they could have more space. I wish she could be on every flight I take."
Pros: "Arrived on time and smooth flight though it was completely full"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Even though we were delayed for 10 mins We still managed to make it to NYC on time. The crew was friendly. The entertainment was exceptional. Really I have no complaints. I am so happy that they were able to accommodate a seat change at no charge as well."
Pros: "Overall Service!!!!"
Cons: "People Should Use The Overhead Bins Next To Their Seats, "Not Someone Else's", Thank You Very Much"
Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Pros: "Excellent flight with efficient service. Flight was on time and friendly staff"
Cons: "Efficiency"
Pros: "The Delta service desk was great! We wanted to get an earlier flight home and the Delta Rep got us on standby quickly and with a smile."
Cons: "Some chaos getting on the flight. The area they have set up for the different sections to wait before getting called weren't marked very well so everyone was bunched up and confused. Once they started calling the sections it was fine. Not sure why they even had the marked areas."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant. Boarding was fast and efficient, nobody bumrushed."
Cons: "The non-reclining seat right next to the bathroom door opening should not exist. I was miserable there; I swear everyone on the plane made sure to take a dump on this <2 hour flight. Also none of the windows on any of these small planes line up with the actual positions of seats and it sucks."
Cons: "After we boarded and were already sitting in our sits the stewardess came and removed our bags from the overhead compartment for another person with a larger bag! We ended up storing our bags under the sits in-front. The way it was done it was rude and with no consideration for our comfort."
Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Atlanta to NY was rescheduled for an hour and fifteen minutes later, boarding for the delayed flight started late, closed doors were another 20 minutes late, spend another hour or so waiting for confirmations, during which no AC is on because of a malfunction on the plane with the electricity unit. Due to rough air conditions, no in-flight service, or very limited one - and all of those are fine by me, and not the airlines' fault at all. But then, during all these unexpected conditions, I can't even use the in flight entertainment system as i use Bluetooth earphones, and to get earphones I have to buy them for 2$. To earn excellent service, inspite of all the delays, AC malfunction and unpleasantness all you had to do was give those 2$ earphones for free. I have another flight with SkyTeam coming up and I do hope it won't be as unpleasant as it is a much longer flight."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could under the circumstances."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled for 7:45 pm. Due to the storm the day before, my flight out of Miami was cancelled and I was told that the flight out of W Palm Beach was my only option. I paid $150 for an Uber at 4 pm. At 6:37, I got an email with news of a two hour delay. I would’ve appreciated an earlier notice. But much worse was the boarding experience. As half the passengers had boarded, someone announced that we had to have everyone boarded and seated in 5 minutes, or else the crew would time out, and we’d have to stay in WPalm. This set off a frenzy, with seated passengers yelling at the people boarding to hurry!! I was told by the pilot while exiting in LGA, that we made it by 30 seconds! It could’ve been handled so much better!"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Pros: "Got me where I needed to go at the price I wanted to pay. - The gals at the ticketing desk were extremely helpful and cheerful."
Cons: "Not my typical Delta experience: -Boarding for special needs was a joke. A literal ‘run-on-sentence’. No more did I get up and they went to the next group. I was almost knocked over in the rush. -The onboard staff was nice enough. However, between the two of them, one of them had a thick accent. Maybe that one shouldn’t be the one making all on board announcements… and please fix the horrendous crackles too!!! -It seemed our pilot was in training… during our short flight a series of right and left turns were made, no effort to avoid turbulence, and the landing was surprisingly hard. It felt as if my spine took a quick jab to my brain as a result! What’s up?"

Pros: "Great trips notifications"
Pros: "I asked for a change of seat at the gate and was given it. It really made a difference to be at the window."
Pros: "Very nice flight and attentive staff. Enjoyed the view of NYC as we flew up the East River, then looped over Nassau County to approach LGA."
Cons: "The male flight attendant who handed out the complimentary drinks and snacks acted a bit strangely. I was very thirsty, and I asked him if I could keep the rest of the can of soda. He neither said yes nor no, but rather completely ignored what I said and just poured my drink and moved on. I was a mildly annoyed, but figured maybe it was policy and he was shy and didn't want to debate the matter. When he took care of the older couple behind us, however, things got really strange. He asked them whether they wanted pretzels or peanuts, but they misheard him and asked for a ginger ale. I happened to know that he did have ginger ale, since my wife had just gotten one, but rather than just pouring the old folks a drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" They misheard again and asked him whether he had a diet ginger ale. Again, rather than just pour them the drink, he repeated himself. "Peanuts or pretzels?" This went round and round a few more times -- like a poorly designed computer UI that refuses to accept anything except the correct input -- before the old couple finally figured out the disconnect and picked their snacks before their drinks. Very weird."
Pros: "Please call me. Why did you double charge me? I took my parents for a trip and you charge me 2 twice?? Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "You charge me twice. Call me 416 888 4387"
Cons: "Arrived "early" only to sit on tarmac for over 45 minutes with no air , I'd rather leave later , get there at the right time and not sit in a plane with no air for extended time"
Pros: "Cabin crew were great. Food selection is good and appreciate the snacks."
Cons: "Wish all seats and electrical outlets. Was forced to check my bag at the gate and DID NOT think it was nessesary. There was plenty of room on the plane. They also didn't allow me to take my medicine out before it was checked. Luckily there were no issues with getting it back."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."
Pros: "The agent on my departure flight at the ATL airport was amazing, boarding was quick, the flight attendants were great! I had an overall great experience."
Cons: "Turbulence was pretty bad both flights."
Pros: "Return trip was 30 min ahead of schedule"
Cons: "We had a 2 hour delay getting to NYC"
Cons: "Not enough water on the flight and we landed in a parking lot and shuttled back to the airport."
Pros: "The Delta cookies that were offered as a snack"
Cons: "I don't understand why there's always a lack of space when the flight is full. Were the aircrafts not designed to accommodate a full flight's worth of luggage? anf then when I went to go to my seat, the air stewardess told me to progress down the aisle so someone that they knew could pass through, causing a delay in me getting to my seat as well as losing my overhead luggage space as someone else passing utilized it instead. Now I am in my seat with both my carry on and personal item stowed below. So was I comfortable ? No. Was I upset and annoyed, on top of being tired? Yes. They need a better system."
Pros: "The flight itself was fairly quick."
Cons: "We were late by 4hours and they kept changing the times. I wish they would have set it to one time like the other airlines. The seating is uncomfortable and there was no entertainment."
Cons: "There were many empty seats, and when I moved from a cramped seat to a fully open row, the attendant rudely and humiliatingly admonished me for moving to a comfort+ from my "preferred" seat. It was unprofessional and extremely uncalled for. The seats were completely empty and there was no reason for him to admonish me loudly and rudely. I suffer from severe general anxiety disorder, fur which I take appropriate medications, but this incident caused an anxiety attack that lasted through the rest of the flight. Extremely disturbing that crew would behave so rudely and insensitively to anyone."
Cons: "Plane was dirty when boarding and older than usual with a broken intercom speaker above us - squawking volume that rang every time the captain or seatbelt light came on. Staff were loud throughout this evening flight where everyone tried to get some shut eye. NOT kid friendly. overhead bins didn't fit the standard carry on correctly requiring everyone to place them sideways with wasted space and therefore not enough luggage room for everyone, crowding an already fully booked flight. A few more reasons why we'll never fly delta again"
Cons: "Plane was diverted back to Toronto from LaGuardia airport as we were told due to "weather", landed late at night and were told that due to not being able to control weather WestJet could not assist with accommodations, leaving everyone stranded and scrambling to find a room in alreday booked up hotels. When speaking on phone with agent, I was told it wasn't due to weather but incident at LaGuardia where plane went off runway. I paid $130.00 for 5 hours in a hotel, due to pilot error, not weather. La Guardia opened it's other runway immediately after and other airports in NewYork were running fine. Completely unacceptable and extremely bad customer service as CSR simply told us "sorry we can't help". Will never book with West Jet again."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Special assistance readily available"
Cons: "The weather"
Cons: "We had to wait for an hour on the runway until we could approach the gate"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "If there were no delays"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable enough to sleep for a few hours"
Cons: "The ac in cabin could have been a lot colder"
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Cons: "Too freakin cold."
Cons: "No personal entertainment system. Has to use my phone."
Cons: "Delayed flight. Seat didn't recline."
Pros: "A bit more legroom than united airlines. Tvs were a plus. The service was excellent and they give you a full can of soda instead of just a dram."
Cons: "Nothing really it was a great value for the price."
Cons: "No delay"
Pros: "the best seat ever and very amazing crew"
Pros: "The crew were nice people."
Cons: "There was no air conditioning and we were re-routed all the way down to Kentucky on the way back!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Landing, temperature, passengers"
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination"
Cons: "Flight was turbulent, plane was messy, crew had a hard time noticing when passengers needed anything."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled, some staff I dealt with to rebook had some attitude issues, others where fine. Overall not very transparent throughout the process. Definitely could've been much more helpful."
Cons: "plane was too hot...AA needs to keep a lower temp and pump air through their plane...on a crowded flight like this was, claustrophobia set in. First time I ever experienced this."
Pros: "Yes the flight was slightly empty so I had a ton of room!!!!"
Pros: "Knowing what carousel luggage was at - I suppose."
Cons: "Extended wait times in taxi departing and landing - took over an hour longer than expected. LaGuardia airport forced passengers to take their car services by walking outside and waiting in a parking garage with (12 degree Fahrenheit feels like -4 and 20 mph winds). Felt frostbite, couldn’t move fingers, and have a sinus headache. absolutely appalling this is NY and USA - yet we can’t have car services pick up pasengers outside the door of the airport, instead require to walk 7 minutes and stand in a freezing air tunnel airport garage. Changes my mind on flying to LAGUARDIA in the future"
Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. They did not allow me to take her whit me in the plane because i did not fit a suitcase that always travel on top because is small suitcase terrible I will never travel again with amercan airlines"
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "X"
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "The available movies and games in personal screen"
Cons: "Seat selection"
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Pros: "We had to wait in the airplane upon arrival in La Guardia NY because wheelchair was not ready."
Pros: "BATE AND SWITCH. I BUY A TICKET TO DISCOVER IT DOENST ALLOW ME TO CARRY MY ROLLER BAG ON BOARD UNLESS I PAY A $60.00 FEE, YES $60. I GUESS THIS IS HOW TO MAKE A PROFIT EVEN IF YOU MAKE YOUR CUSTOMER FEEL LIKE A SUCKER! THANKS AMERICAN AIRLINE FOR LETTING ME KNOW YOU ONLY CARE ABOUT YOUR STOCKHOLDER AND THE CUSTOMER IS JUST A WAY TO MAKE THE STOCKHOLDERS AND EXECUTIVES (WHO GET BIG BONUS') HAPPY. SINCE YOU NOW ACT LIKE SPIRIT AIRLINES MAYBE YOU SHOULD MERGE WITH THEM TOO. I WANT BE TRAVELING AMERICAN AGAIN UNLESS ITS THE ONLY CHOICE I HAVE. IM GLAD TO SHARE MY STORY WITH OTHERS."
Cons: "NOTHING"
Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."
Cons: "The plane was very old."
Cons: "We waited for 3 hours inside the plane on taxi then had to get off for an hour because of traffic delays."
Pros: "i like the wifi internet that AA provided. Great movies"
Cons: "The flight attendants were highly rude and i felt as if i was discriminated on. I was sitting in the back and the flight attendant who was suppose to assist us made us feel like i was a bother to her. First of all she just rudly dropped biscuits on my table didnt ask if i wanted and then I had to ask her for coffee, she didnt ask me if i wanted something to drink. Finally she brought my daughter and I some coffee. i ask for sugar and she said im very busy you have to wait....eventually she gave me one packet of sugar. I had to ask for another sugar for my daughter , so when i ask she gets upset and tells me i have to wait but there as a white who ask for assistance and she was very polite to her."
Cons: "I am missing two items that I had in my checked bag and my clothes and belongings were all messy as if it had been gone through. I am very upset that these items were likely taken by whoever went through my bag."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled we were re-routed and didn't get there until 24hours later."
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Cons: "American airlines was helpful to embark my daughter who lost her conection from Miami to NYC"
Pros: "It was good fly can't complaint the attention was great"
Cons: "When I was flying to Arkansas from NY they didn't give anything to eat"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. this is the third flight that has been cancelled to this destination. I waited for 7 hours in the airport and caught a flight on stand by. Because this has happended to me before I knew how to get a stand by ticket right away even though I was scheduled on a flight for later that day. Much later."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but on the outbound flight, the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using on-board Wifi, as well as 2 TV shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and courteous. Our plane landed early which is a plus"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact some of the seats appeared to be dirty , I sat on a book."
Pros: "Very professional and friendly."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The pilots did not show up for my flight after my other connecting flight was delayed and a previous fkight had been cancelled."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not updating flights at the airports or apps, our 3 flights that we tried to take to get us home were canceled I had to fly stand by ALL day Saturday, went through security three times, and have been standing at a ticket counter for ANOTHER DELAYED flight. I am disgusted and will NEVER fly American again and will let friends and family know to fly SOUTHWEST"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for approximately 3 hours for mechanical problems."
Pros: "The crew was nice!"
Cons: "Just a small plane, subject to turbulence. Not much that can be done, though if they ever redo the seats for a little more cushioning, that would be nice."
Pros: "Fast wi fi and decent selection of in flight stuff on devices. Landed early!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "I was sitting two rows from the bathroom and the entire time the bathroom reeked of urine. It was unbearable."
Pros: "Nothing really- we were on the tarmac for an hour for a flight that was 46 minutes!"
Cons: "An on time departure- and a better / bigger aircraft."
Cons: "I had a very large man in the middle seat next to me. I was in the window seat. He leaked over into my seat which made it very uncomfortable especially when he fell asleep. I know the airlines can't do anything about this but he should pay for a larger seat."
Pros: "Did not really like it."
Cons: "More communication from the boarding staff. The delays kept increasing. Due to weather, we were delayed 4 hrs. They only decided to accommodate everyone with water and snacks 3 hrs into the delay."
Pros: "Pilot spoke with confidence and crew handled delay will"
Cons: "options for new rider poor"
Cons: "We were forced to use another airline and we landed in NYC about 5 hours later."
Pros: "The flight time was short"
Cons: "Cabin crew seemed cold and distracted I was done of the last to board because I came off a connecting flight. And I was made to check my carry-on at the gate, however when I boarded the plane I saw plenty of overhead room. The carry-on bag that I had to check was scoffed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pilot admitted error. They did not even know what was going on. 3 hours late due to last min maintenance after the plane had been on the ground since last night. No supervisor came even though we asked the captain to contact one. We were ignored. Total clusterfuck. Pilot was courteous and professional but front desk was Frazzled and incompetent. We were hugely inconvenienced and missed our obligations with no offer of compensation. Then when we finally get on the plane they kick us off!!!!!!!!!! Now they are saying a 630 departure for a 2 pm flight. This is beyond acceptable and I am about to call the local news and am sending them video of your gross incompetence. I want to be contacted at 815-527-1935 immediately. My time is valuable and no part of this delay is acceptable. I want full flight vouchers for this debacle"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Cons: "You better get rid of basic economy."
Pros: "The crew was nice, quick check ins and boarding. They were very accommodating during the flight."
Cons: "Although it was breakfast, not everyone wants sausage or the other option of fruit and yogurt. Meals should be offered in the literature provided by time, as in reality, if you're not going to sever the expansive US menu throughout the day. I was unable to order a salad at 9 am, regardless of being starving. Also I'm 5'1, there isn't enough leg room. Power outlets should not be a first class luxury, that is rediculous. We all need to charge our devices. TV should not come as an extra charge."
Pros: "The crew The entertainment options The power options The drinks"
Cons: "10 minutes earlier and the food would have been better. Then again, 10 minutes earlier and wouldn’t have made flight."
Pros: "Air Canada seats were much more comfortable than the United flight seats."
Cons: "I had to leave the terminal and pass through security again. United did not let me reserve my seat on Air Canada. They did not even tell me where my connecting flight could be found."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Despite delay, flight arrived at gate on time."
Cons: "Insufficient meals available for the passengers. Flight time was moved back twice and then up. It can really cause problems for people when departure times are moved up. In flight programs were good but no headphones provided. Good thing we brought some!"
Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Pros: "Shuttle helped me get to where I needed to go which was great because I am disabled. Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Didn't put my bag on the conveyor right and instead of being explicit as to what was wrong, the TSA officer just kept yelling at me I was doing things wrong and I was holding everything up. Could have been so much more pleasant. Also give wrong data a couple of times but got through it ok."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed, United could not get me to Richmond before 5 pm. Not acceptable. They had to book me on another airline. Never took the united flights."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed, and was charged a $200 oversized baggage fee for a bag that actually isn't oversized according to the measurements on the United website"
Pros: "The flight was delayed for who knows what reason and after many it's gonna be right here! It took an hour and therefore delayed my arrival to my final destination 6 hours!!!"
Pros: "Seat was ok in stiffness and padding"
Cons: "Don't like sitting with my knees propped on the seat in front of me when I'm only 6' tall. feel like you could give a touch of extra legroom for times like when you want something out of your bag crammed below the seat and you have to jar your neck sideways to reach it and try not to be in your neighbors lap while doing it."
Pros: "It was running on time."
Cons: "The seats were super tiny and cramped! I paid for wifi and had to keep refreshing the whole time and it never really worked at all. I was sort of banking on using that flight to work and now I am late on some deadlines."
Pros: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Cons: "We had a four hour delay. Absolutely no reason given. Even the the guys at the counter admitted they didn't know why the plane was delayed. And best yet, neither did the pilot. Customer service was great at the airport. But the airline itself was pathetic."
Cons: "economy seats so small. also can't even access flight maps if you don't buy the directv package."
Pros: "Nice comfortable seating. Fell straight to sleep"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fast boarding, smooth flight, almost on time landing despite light snow in NY, flight was not full which was a big plus, there was enough room in overhead bins thanks to fewer passengers on board, bigger than average built in seats monitors"
Cons: "Direct TV too expensive, no other entertainment option"
Cons: "The air hostess were horrible!! It felt like they didn't know what they were doing. We sat for hours. I had a messages that the fight was delayed before they announced it. The first gate cancellation was never announced. New passengers boarded and it was a free for all . Those passengers lied about seating and pushed their way on. We believed them until one said that United offered them an earlier flight and choice of seating."
Pros: "I like that after my 1st flight was cancelled, they booked me on another flight that is so delayed I'm still waiting at the airport!"
Cons: "I'm still waiting at the airport"
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "My flight was delayed twice on both the trip out and the return. It's not such a bit deal for a longer flight, but when the flight is barely more than an hour and it's delayed for an hour each time it really starts to negate the point of flying instead of driving when you factor in the airport time."
Pros: "The comfy seats"
Cons: "The fact that I had to pay to watch tv. Maybe people should have to pay for movies, but not for watching tv. Flights and till we takeoff can take a while. It would be nice to have some free entertainment. The plane was very hot when we were boarding."
Pros: "Captain personally kept us updated on the situation concerning the delay due to mechanical problems"
Cons: "Reassurance about what would happen if a replacement aircraft could not be found should be provided up front."
Pros: "Comfortable seats and lots of leg room. I was not crowded at all. It was so nice to not feel cramped and to have plenty of room around me. It was one of the most comfortable flights I have experienced in years!"
Cons: "The flight attendants were disrespectful to not only me but to other passengers. They were not attentive! The plane was dirty."
Cons: "UAL announced one hour delay due to no plane availability which I could understand after an early day thunderstorm. But shortly after, I received a text from Kayak.com (booking) announcing delay moved to 30 mins and boarding had started. Thank goodness for Kayak.com"
Pros: "Boarding was well organized. Crew was great."
Cons: "Magazine was old with torn out pages including the inflight food list. Connecting to the in-flight entertainment system on my Apple Mac was confusing and took too long -- it could have been explained better vis-a-vis browser caveats, etc. -- which is too bad because I found a movie I wanted to watch but missed the end as it had taken so long to load the proper software. Seats were too small and cramped."
Cons: "I spent 4 hours waiting for a connecting flight the scheduled wait was 45 min"
Cons: "The only snack available was a mix that had dairy. Other airlines, like JetBlue not only have a selection from which to choose, but at least one option is vegan."
Cons: "Bad"
Pros: "It was also 2 hours late."
Cons: "The crew was very rude and argued with me for not saying thank you to him after he gave me water. I had actually said Thank you but he didn't hear it. I don't mind saying it again."
Cons: "Some inspector idiot decided that the exterior cover stickers weren't "up to code" literally half an hour before my flight, delaying us 2 hours. I got onto a different flight at the last second, then the same thing happened to that plane. Brilliant on their parts. I almost lost a job interview thanks to your people."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Wobbly takeoff from Denver, then an aborted landing at LGA, I won't be flying United again anytime soon."
Pros: "Quick, pleasant, & timely"
Cons: "Flight attendant asked if my boyfriend was my son, then went from son to husband to friend. I told her boyfriend. We are 2 years apart in age. Flight attendant was pleasant but she should have just kept her mouth shut if she was unsure. Our relationship status is none of her business. She meant well & is pleasant bur I was on call before & did look tired. Asking if my boyfriend was my son did not help the situation."
Cons: "There was confusion on where to go check luggage and what duty free items could be carried on board."
Pros: "The flight was short"
Cons: "The flight was short so no entertainment was needed. After the nightmarish flight I had just endured it felt like first class accommodations."
Pros: "R flight was cancelled and did not fine out until we were at the airport.."
Cons: "That r flight was cancelled and there was no other flight"
Pros: "I got stuck in security but the United staff waited for me to board. I am grateful they went the extra mile because I chose to fly that day in order to make it to an important event."
