The CRJ900 is a small plane. For larger passengers, it is only tolerable, even in 1st class. Perhaps avoid 1st row
Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.
Pros: "It's American you know what you get"
Cons: "No room as always but you have to wear a mask next to another mouth breather and they still keep it hot!"
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with my other flight"
Pros: "This was a prompt, well organized flight. In-flight entertainment on AA is always decent."
Cons: "I was asked to move from the front of the plane to the second to last row without a thank you or any kind of appreciation..."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "They got me home eventually"
Cons: "Timeliness was awful. Late crew delayed the flight 50 min. Then ripped cargo net resulted in cargo shift."
Cons: "I was sitting in premium economy and there was no food left. Unacceptable on a long flight. Also on long flight they should give you the can to drink. One little cup of liquid and NO food not even a bag of pretzels or cookies was offered. They could have at least come around with water only later on"
Pros: "Comfortable seating. Friendly staff."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "Seats are too small."
Pros: "Wide choice of films on the flight, boarding was hassle free."
Cons: "Crew could have been much politer when asking about the food wishes of others. Seemed to have no idea how to walk through the aisles, hitting my head and shoulders more than once while walking through."
Pros: "The coffee was hot?"
Cons: "Communication was awful. Make flight attendant had less personality than a dusty brick. Idiot behind me was leaning on my seat so I couldn’t recline. It was just probably one of the worst experiences I’ve had flying."
Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"
Cons: "Commuter jet boarding at DCA is going to stink until the new terminal is completed. Just is."
Pros: "Great surprise at the end of a long travel day. New plane, great crew."
Pros: "It was ok. Got there safe and sound. That's what counts."
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick, and improvement has been made with people waiting for their boarding group to be called from crowding the boarding line. The crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Several seat changes had to be made, but it all worked out."
Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats and spacement between the seats too small and you feel very cramped specially when the person in front of you reclines his seat you can hardly move."
Pros: "Actually pushed back from gate on time in Philadelphia. Took about 25 minutes from then til take off. Landed only a few minutes behind schedule. Crew was pleasant. Food was okay."
Cons: "It was a Finnair flight but operated by American Airlines. I booked through Justfly.com and paid extra for what I thought were our seats. Don’t pay Justfly for seating choice as the operating airline can switch your seats. Online checkin was difficult as I tried Finnair first with no luck, then got somewhere with American. Seats were not very comfortable but I guess that’s what you get in economy."
Pros: "Boarded on time, left on time, smooth flight, early arrival. What’s not to like? NB: Food on this short trip wasn’t available, thus wasn’t a thing, thus my low rating. Great bottled water, tho. ;)"
Cons: "All good!"
Cons: "Entirely too crowded."
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat. Nice crew"
Cons: "I had a screen with excellent selections but the audio didn’t work. They reset it twice but nothing. Started watching a movie with CC but 40 min in it ‘died’."
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "Legroom terrible"
Pros: "The flight was quite emty and instead of packing everyone in the same area, we all had a row for ourselves which was very enjoyable. Flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The interview by a British Airway agent before the flight. I have been to the USA many times and I totally understand this type of interview, but the agent was aggressive, asking questions that were totally irrelevant. She did not even care about why I was going to the USA or where I was staying. Se was rude and I was really unpleased by her attitude saying it was British Airways way off doing interviews. Again I have had many interviews before flying to the USA, never been a bad exerience before"
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Cons: "I asked for water and juice, they just gave me juice"
Pros: "First time flyer with American airlines and the service was impeccable"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "It was finally on time."
Cons: "Being given the, “run around” by American Airlines."
Pros: "CRJ 900s have more leg room than expected"
Pros: "A crazy day at the airport with TWO unattended baggage threats that created a back log at security. Efficiently boarded the plane and took off on time, arriving early."
Cons: "Taking a bus to the plane, being forced to wait on the bus in hot conditions to board, having to climb stairs to access plane."
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "On time. Crew was nice, too"
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "The staff was nice and friendly"
Pros: "New plane, no delays"
Cons: "On way there wasted too much time.with delays"
Cons: "Completely ignored for beverage service"
Cons: "Poor communication Delays -3 hrs"
Cons: "The usual delays out of O'Hare. This plane was an older plane, but good enough for a medium length flight."
Cons: "It's AA, never again"
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "I had never flown coach and decided to try it at a ridiculously low price. It was fine. I slept well and the service was above expectation for Coach"
Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks included. Was able to get my bag checked for free and pay a decent price for a last minute emergency flight. Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "The price was more than I wanted to pay but it was not unreasonable."
Flight delayed over an hour with no updates. Initially told crew had arrived and needed to make their way to the gate, but that was obviously a lie because I couldn't walked that distance a dozen times in the 70 minutes it took. Delays happen: fine. But failing to provide updates and informing passengers is inexcusable.
I didn’t make this connection
Great overall experience, thank you!
Flew United Airlines. Was planning to get some work done on the flight. Had to use the flashlight on my smartphone because the overhead light for my seat would only stay on for a couple seconds before turning off. Just another example of United not maintaining their planes like they used to.
Pros: "Crew in flight was nice and professional Sit in 1st class was comfortable"
Cons: "For this flight everything was good"
Cons: "Late crew caused delays"
Pros: "Timeliness, professional staff and crew"
Cons: "Less cramped airplane: there is nothing wrong with the plane itself but every time I have travelled this route the plane has been completely full (this time it was even oversold) so a bigger plane would help"
Pros: "The flight was easy and quick. These small planes are actually pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Waiting for a gate in Chicago is never fun. Most people on the plane seemed to have tight connections, and I'm guessing most of us missed them. I only made mine because the next flight was delayed."
Pros: "Crew was great!! Pilot had sense of humor and kept us informed."
Cons: "Was a great flight! No improvements needed."
Cons: "Rough landing in Washington, smell of kerosene in Sao Paulo flight, otherwise good."
Pros: "The connection time Mach very well。"
Cons: "I learned that 3 flight together long hours have no food been sever and we have time to get food from airport. Next time I will do better☺。"
Cons: "All of my fligts has been delayed and resceduled, so instead of 18 hours to go to hawaii, it took me 36h"
Pros: "Good communication from crew concerning updates and ETAs."
Cons: "Service was a bit brusque at times, but never unkind."
Cons: "I made a reservation for my whole family and selected seats four month ahead (we reserved 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1D). One day before the departure, United informed me that one of my kid had to be moved to 11B a part from the rest of family due to a flight swap. When we started boarding, I noted someone else was sitting on my seat (1D) with his own boarding pass with 1D written. United crew politely asked if the gentlemen was willing to move to 6B, which his original seating in the system but he refused to do so. We' also personally explained to him that if he can yield the seat so that our family could sit together due to my wife's medical condition but he would not cooperate. I noted Those gentlemen on 1D and 1C are either buddies or coworkers. The crews were looking at each other without offering a solution. I ended up telling the crew that I could sit on 6B so that the plane can leave. The departure time was 20 min late u related my seating issue and de-icing took another 40 min. I am a Global Service member and I am very unhappy about the way the whole situation was created and handled by United."
Pros: "I was able to sleep for 2 hours of this 3 hour flight. But that was due more to my extreme exhaustion than any comfort the plane provided."
Cons: "The Flight attendant was rude and abrupt."
Pros: "Delayed by 2 hours"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "In flight entertainment did not work"
Pros: "The flight crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "The boarding time lasted an hour as the front desk staff at the gate insisted that I needed a visa travel document for my connection in China (multiple leg journey). What they failed to realize is that nobody needs a visa for China if they’re connecting in transit. It took a phone call and 3 staff members to sort things out. Not something that I want to deal with at 5:00 am. Moreover, due to the de icing, the flight was late and i just made it to my connecting flight in Newark. It was quite a hair-raising experience overall."
Cons: "Smoke on the plane crazy delay"
Pros: "The prevoarding was fine!"
Cons: "I was sat next to two verge large people that smelled and farted before pushback. One finally got up and left to sit somewhere else. The flight to SFO was fine until landing when they missed the landing and took an extra hour and 15 minutes to get to the gate. Passengers were scared for their lives! I was terrified at one point due to the lack of knowledge shared with the cabin!"
Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. They got the plane boarded early for an early takeoff. It was easy getting from landing gate to my next takeoff gate."
Cons: "The boarding was a little quicker and more controlled."
Pros: "Buen servicio"
Cons: "No te ofrecen buenos aperitivos"
Pros: "Flight was timely"
Cons: "We flew to Hawaii for a friend's wedding and many of us flew different airlines. You would think that a flight that was 8 hours would include a meal?! Our friends who flew Delta and American all got meals and snacks. Another issue too is that you do get free movies although they don't tell you as your boarding that you would need their App to watch it. So if you didn't download it before take off you have to pay for their internet or their tablet."
Cons: "Continuously moving departure time back."
Pros: "Seats were very roomy and pilot did a great job!. Boarding went great!"
Cons: "We were stuck on tarmac but this was weather related. No gluten free snacks. Some crew was nice others less so."
Cons: "It was a long delay, which meant I missed my connection at O'Hare even though I had a 3 hour window."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Flight was 4 hours late. The seat was so small, I could not open the tablet (folding tablet in armrest). I am 6" tall and medium built. That tablet can only fit a kid"
Cons: "Delayed delayed delayed"
Pros: "Leg room. The app had movies. Friendly people. Not crammed with passengers. I FINALLY got a window seat"
Pros: "A smooth easy trip from Chattanooga to Newark."
Pros: "Too many delays to be able to take the flight."
Cons: "I was put on an Air Canada flight and sat on the tarmac for almost THREE hours in MTL. Finally took off and am stuck in Toronto overnight. Air Canada was very unhelpful. I have to sleep in the airport. No food vouchers. Sucks."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, staff was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment..."
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Could not get the entertainment app to work."
Pros: "friendly flight crew. good informations nice plain"
Cons: "- entertanment only with pay??? this is a step backwords...."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried.. United booked a hotel room for the night."
Cons: "Poor communication on gate change. Delay on flight boarding, and there were issues with engine. Stuck on the tarmac with no AC, they had us off-boarded since everyone was sweating. Reboarded after, no AC still until takeoff. Delayed more than two hours- this was last flight, and caused me to miss connection flight. Was supposed to arrive in final destination at 11pm that night- ended up getting there at 9:40AM next day."
Cons: "Gate was changed.. Delayed one hour"
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"
Pros: "Seating. It's a new plane."
Cons: "Plane was late leaving and you lost my luggage. I had $40 of frozen smoke meat on it that spoiled and I had no clothes or anything until 11:00 the next day and there was only one transfer for the luggage to make plus they had extra time because the plane was LATE."
Pros: "Can't really remember if I liked anything."
Cons: "Unfriendly crew. Flight delayed by more then 2 hours. We were moved from gate to gate 2-3 times. Totally disorganized."
Pros: "Very decent legroom onboard....flawless connections....pleasurable. Flight crew were responsive, friendly, and professional."
Cons: "Delay caused us to miss last flight of day. We have been sleeping on floor of airport for 9 hours. Same thing happened in the beginning of the trip from dallas to chicago. Oh, it was our honeymoon!"
Pros: "The lady at the gate did everything she could to get my wife and I seats next to each other. Very kind and polite woman at HNL."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable and no leg space at all. Paid the price of a meal at a restaurant for a box of snacks on the plane. Food grossly overpriced."
Pros: "Flight cancelled"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Had to wait 30 minutes to speak to United service rep to rebook to Boston. No other Manchester flights. Forced to check carry ons. There were 10 terminals for service reps and only five reps. Line was very long and reps were in no hurry to assist. Not a pleasant experience. They should pay us a cancellation fee like they charge us when we cancel. Incurred additional expense getting to Manchester, NH. Not happy with United."
Pros: "Never on Air Canada again. Food was miserable. They literally told me that they ran out of food (on the flight from Montreal to Casablanca). No kidding. They told us that the flight was full and no more food was available! When we asked for water, they did not bring water. I am not sure if they were out of water because the flight was full! That would be something! Bathrooms were not usable. Utterly dirty. My six-year old daughter refused to use the bathrooms. Water was flowing and the smell was horrible. They should clean that. I can go on but what is the point???"
Cons: "The list would be too long. So, what did I like is a better question in this case. Honestly, I am not even sure if I liked anything. I mean some people were nice, but why? Do I expect people to be rude? I mean, I need to like something extraordinary, something that others don't do. I can't remember anything remarkable. Just nothing."
