Flight was delayed 1.5 hrs because the “new pilot” didn’t have his paperwork. There were ZERO food options . Check in process was too long. The app and customer service is marginal at best. I used to love AM , but I was super disappointed with this entire Roundtrip experience.
Made payment for extra baggage online. When I got to check-in, they made me pay again. Lesson learned - Dont buy extra luggage allowence online, only pay at check-in.
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "There was utter chaos at pre-boarding. The snack was tiny. A flight attendant was rude. My seat assignment was changed without my consent."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. Compared to other flights there is more leg room. Flight attendants where friendly."
Cons: "The flight was late on arrival, so there was more time spent in the airport. Due to this, we were right behind another flight that landed before us. Customs will only allow one plane to disembark, so we waited to get off the plan for over 30 minutes. This was the only bad experience with the trip."
Pros: "Nothing. There were no Covid-19 measures in place and no social distancing. Unsafe. Crew without masks."
Cons: "FOLLOW COVID-19 TRAVEL GUIDELINES!!!"
Cons: "1h late departure, but we arrived at the expected time. Seats were not very confortable, but everyone had an individual tv. We bought a flight Montreal-Mexico-Panama City, but for some reasons, it was impossible to get boarding passes for the second part of this flight... We had to check-in again in Mexico city."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "You should bring a pillow and a blanket yourself if you want to have a good long flight."
Cons: "This part of the flight was good, Mexico City to Los Angeles was terrible."

Cons: "Food could have been better"
Pros: "The lunch was good, the team was nice and the flight went well!"
Pros: "Great plane with great service!"
Cons: "Horrible and first flight was 1h45min late which made me miss my connecting flight. The transit airport was also a horrible experience to spend many endless hours in."
Pros: "the crew was very gentle."
Cons: "I could not get my chair in a more confortable position to sleep, it did not work. Because of that my 6 hour and a half trip was very long and unconfortable and i ended up with pain in my lower back."
Cons: "In the counter people were rude (as always) and the first guy that helped us didnt found us. A lot of time wasting and not much staff to check-in."
Pros: "Staff on board was great, super friendly & attentive!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes & there was no mention of it from the crew. They were acting as if there was nothing going on and no reason for the delay. No actions were taken to compensate for the delayed flight."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Airline too busy ?we lost are flight"
Pros: "I loved the city of Puerto Vallarta,Mexico. I will encourage anyone interesting in visiting Puerto Vallarta to take Delta,or American Airlines"
Cons: "Aeromexico canceled my flight 5 hours before boarding on May 24th 2018. Then rebooked us two days later on May 26th 2018"
Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"
Pros: "We think the upgrade to AM Plus was worth it."
Cons: "Crew not attentive. Announcements in English were almost impossible to hear - need to be louder. Video screens were very limited: no games to play, no instructions on how to use it, and map of route was inflexible."
Cons: "Avión muy incomodo"
Pros: "Nothing all the cabin crew members were horrible and very rude."
Cons: "Cabin crew and ground personal."
Pros: "Helpful check-in in Mexico City."
Cons: "Flight was scheduled to leave at 11:00 and was delayed an hour and a half. Changed the departure time 3 times within 1 hour."
Pros: "After almost missing our connecting flight to Cabo, we got to relax for our last flight to our final destination with a complimentary beer and a snack, on board also had a movie playing and WiFi."
Pros: "Lots of really good movie choices"
Cons: "Que solo tengan cacahuates y el avión no tenía pinta de haber sido aseado antes de abordar"
Pros: "We got an upgrade to 1st class. However because it’s an older plane, 1st class was just recliner seats. This was an overnight flight, so anything helped. It would have been nicer to have seats lay further back in 1st class. We did not have food since we slept the whole way."
Pros: "Pretty average experience. Did not like that first checked luggage was charged for an international flight."
Cons: "Food was by far the worst of any airline I’ve flown. It was unreal....the smell...wow."
Pros: "Confortable seats and entertaiment"
Cons: "late boarding"
Pros: "The people :) warm kind and helpful flight was delayed though and we had to stay in the plain for almost 2 hrs before we took off .................."
Cons: "Gate was changed before bording, gates closed before plane departure time regardless of not all passengers present. Missed the flight and Aeromexico made us pay to grab another flight while it was Aeromexico personel that refused to allow us in even though it was not yet departure time and said plane doors were closed."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, both at the airport and in the air. It was nice to have meals served, even on the very short flight."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport to find that they had overbooked the plane and our family's 4 seats were in jeopardy. We had to wait until they had processed everyone else in line, even though we had gotten there first, because either they were in the "sky priority" line or because maybe they had pre-bought their seat assignments. After a tense 20 minutes of waiting, they closed the flight and let us have our seats. Then, at the gate, they confiscated two of our most important carry on bags and checked them because they said that children are not allowed a carry on item -- despite paying full freight for their seats! It was very nerve-wracking at our arrival destinations as these two items were not padlocked and were the very last to come on the conveyor belt."
Pros: "It was great! Great people,great food, entertainment,blankets, pillows,music, great view in the eye."
Pros: "Everyone who worked on this trip was very friendly and helpful. They all handled the high pressure and busy nature of the job with excellent professionalism."
Pros: "Good flight, excelent schedule"
Cons: "Flight Over sold (20 people)."
Cons: "To start with I paid to check in my suitcase. But I change my mind and decided to have a cary on. when I arrived at the airport I told an agent that I wanted to bring my suitcase as carry-on and she said that it was too large. So I had to wait in line. When I finally fot to the counter the agent and the agent realized I had already paid. She said that I could try take my suitcase under my own responsibility because she thought security would send me back. I was very surprised to hear this because it is a computer case. I did not have any problems and was able to embark. The plane had not bern clean. The pocket underneath my table had a used kleenex and the table of the person seated next to my had coffee spilled. During the 5:50 hrs only once were we offer a drink. Really bad service for an international flight."
Pros: "Great customer service !"
Cons: "i like everything service entreteinment very good i really enjoyed the movies employes helpfull i whish they have hot meals like before other than that i was very pleased thank you"
Pros: "Plane service was good"
Cons: "Connection in Mexico city was a horrible experience. More than 2 hours to go thru customs. Seberal people lost connection flights. I will never ever will take this flight again."
Cons: "Waited from scheduled boarding to when the flight was cancelled- 3 hours and then little help from Aero Mexico to rebook to final destination in a reasonable time. Was promised a full refund of cancelled booking with Aero Mexico and as of 4/17- 0"
Pros: "I was impressed and very happy the flight was early. I had low expectations with Aeromexico because in the past every flight I took with you was delayed or late."
Pros: "Coffee, SMILES on faces of the Capt., Stewards, Professional Appearances by AM staff from beginning to end. (unlike American Airlines) We had a snafu at boarding and a Miss Gina Diaz in San Jose Airport was MOST super helpful."
Cons: "No movies, or shorts, even clips or old tv shows.... WAAAAAAAA"
Cons: "The fact that they damaged the handle on the zipper, they broke it off, and it was hard to open my luggage."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lost my luggage"
Cons: "No option to confirm seat via phone beforehand, the website kept malfunctioning. No pillows and blankets for passengers on the flight. Those were provided on my flight to Mexico, not on the return flight. Extremely cold."
Cons: "Missed connection No reebooking done by klm no hotel voucher no taxi voucher very bad ground service in MEX"
Cons: "Horrible Service. Delayed 5 hours for multiple mechanical malfunctions. No updates given."
Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
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: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Pros: "I like nothing!!!!!"
Cons: "My flight was canceled and company didn’t give any other flight.... any compensation for it...."
Pros: "Seat was okay. Crew was definitely amazing."
Cons: "I wish the seats were even just an inch wider and more legroom for really tall people like myself."
Pros: "Flights were on time."

Pros: "Crew nice- flight smooth"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "Did good job"
Cons: "Bigger seats in economy"

Cons: "Flight was late and caused me to miss my flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"
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: "All of the above marked excellent. Very smooth flight too."
Cons: "The vegan food was a bit ordinary. Maybe think of Thai and indian veggie curries, roasted veggie and potatoes, pasta with no cheese, etc. :)"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Plane needs updated or put out of service. Uncomfortable for international flights. Monitors were few and broken in the main cabin."
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!"
Pros: "Customer service In Philadelphia was fantastic. Got us on earlier flight so we didn’t have to wait 4 hours."
Cons: "Food and aircraft was old."
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Cons: "American wins tge coach torture contest!"
Pros: "Polite. Clean. Nice business class."
Cons: "Would like more Western food."
Cons: "LATE ! ! ! LATE ! ! ! And “AA” has a really good reputation ... so pretty bummed out ... the apologized ... and did what hey could to make the flight more pleasant ... but i’m here for my daughter who’s having surgery in the morning and .. it’s now 0107 and we should have been here at 2356 ... and we are all tired"
Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "A bit bumpy!"
Pros: "Entertainment, crew"
Cons: "Several flights were delayed and canceled on last minute."
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: "Average. Expectation for US airlines are so low this flight score average."
Pros: "Staff did good jobn"
Cons: "No movie screens on overseas flight. I called day before departure and they couldn’t even tell me yes or no on that question."
Pros: "Best fligh I had in some time. Left on time, arrived early very attentitive crew (with smiles as they worked through the rear cabin - wish I had their names to give recognition for/to). Food rating should have had a ‘NA’ as I nor partner did not consume any food."
Cons: "Can’t think of one thing - unless a flying saucer could have delivered me like in about 5 minutes to Cabo! Ok - maybe one thing: charging for a checked bag on international flight seems rediculous (you asked)."
Cons: "The food options on the brochure were not available, flight attendants had bad attitude and negative vibe"
Pros: "I'm gluten free & I don't eat pork so I would like a gluten free no pork option!"
Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "It was 3 hours delayed and we ended up with an aircraft that was in the hanger. The economy seats were really tight, more suitable for a 2-3 hour domestic flight, not for a transoceanic 7 hour flight. I paid $81 for my seat since AA did not let me choose my seat. $81 for a seat that was really uncomfortable and with very limited leg room. I felt ripped off. There were common screens as entertainment instead of individual ones, very obsolete. This will be the last AA flight I will take."
Pros: "I got the vegetarian meal I asked for."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, because of the boarding process with immigration"
Pros: "Very nice flight. Nothing unexpected."
Pros: "Flight was delayed in classic AA form, ten minutes at a time, leaving you standing around the gate picking your nose with no information! An hour later we board. Our flight attendant Nicky was awesome!"
Cons: "The plane had no power outlets and spotty WiFi. Even though they knew we were late to Charlotte, they let our connection take off EXACTLY on time while dozens of us rand through the airport. AA does this to themselves, they are the worst!"
Pros: "The pilot was a riot, the flight was on time. Again, nothing wrong, nothing special. As it should be (if only we had more leg and seat room, and I am pretty streamline)."
Cons: "I was upset with overall customer service"
Pros: "My seat changed by a crew when I boarded on the plane and I thought that was rude but then I realized that all the row seats were empty. The newest airplane was clean, nice and had a cool entertainment system. All the crews were very friendly, nice and outstanding customer service especially one of the elder crews (Asian man) was very attentive and caring about all passengers. I hope he will be on the board for my return."
Cons: "No so far."
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: "The crew excellent,"
Cons: "Before boarding i felt lost had to ask multiple people where i had to go"
Cons: "No entertainment, ran out of meals by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Pros: "The aircraft was new, clean and had a nice in seat entertainment system."
Cons: "The boarding process is total chaos, self organizing by groups is not as efficient as some airlines. Flight departed over 45 minutes late and arrived late, no concern for any passengers who might be missing close connections."
Great overall experience, thank you!
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: "On time boarding, take off and arrival."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a short flight."
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."
Cons: "the seats are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very receptive to all of my needs. Took care of my Leis on the way too!"
Cons: "Nothing. This was an awesome flight"
Pros: "I liked the lounge."
Cons: "The boarding process could've been better (no excess of gate changes, overbooking the flight, and kicking people out of their seats). Additionally, the food on board could've been better. My chicken was not chicken and lastly the airline's hard product could've been better, no IFE is a big no-no."
Cons: "Rough landing in Washington, smell of kerosene in Sao Paulo flight, otherwise good."
Cons: "Pilot didn’t show up, we waited 2.5 hours for him."
Pros: "Non stop flight. The crew went out of their way to help us enjoy the flight. Food was available during most of the flight. The crew was friendly and enjoyed helping us get to our vacation"
Cons: "The entertainment system. I started watching a movie but couldn’t finish. Once the movie stoped I could not restart it."
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: "Lots of leg room!"
Cons: "No complaints"
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: "Flight was on time and fantastic!"
Cons: "They tried to keep changing it on us!!!"
Pros: "I am only 5'4" but the seat in front of me was broken. I had NO leg room. If you are going to squeeze your passengers in like sardines, the very least that you could do is make sure what little room you have left us isn't compromised by faulty equipment."
Pros: "the crew was great, flight was not overcrowded - smooth sailing the entire flight."
Pros: "Great in flight crew. Easy check in and boarding. Left on time. Arrived early."
Cons: "Really bumpy ride. I mean bumpy."
Cons: "I couldn't believe they did not have no tv or some type of food for 6 hour flight"
Pros: "Noisy intrusive spoiled crying screaming kids kicking seats shaking rattles and crew was helpless"
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: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We weren't happy about not being able to pick our seats before hand. Very frustrating not knowing if we had sets or not when checking in at the airport."
Pros: "Non stop to Cabo"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating and leg room. $200 fee each way fro surfboards. Lost the surfboards on the way home."
Pros: "I liked that we made it to Cabo in a timely fashion"
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to download an app to get free wifi."
Pros: "My grandma passed away and the airline would not work with me when I tried to change my flight. Very upsetting. Mark Davis"
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: "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."
Pros: "Bad good, good service but 5 hours delay"
Cons: "The airplane food and the delay in Chicago"
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."
Cons: "United is a poor carrier, there's nothing more to say. I struggled with my check in (I had just had a spine procedure done 48 hrs prior).... and by the time I got help from an agent it was 7:03 am, so... They wouldn't give me a boarding pass for my 8 am flight. Add to that an extremely rude ticket agent who couldn't care less about helping me, and almost seemed to enjoy my predicament, and that sums up my experience with this airline. I will never fly with them again, that's for sure; there's so many other airlines that actually care about their customers, this is not one of them."
Pros: "Economy Plus seating was awesome"
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: "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."
Pros: "Relatively cheap flight... Key word is "relatively""
Cons: "You are literally only paying for a seat on a plane on this airline nowadays... No food, 1 drink + 1 water refill, cramped space, no checked bags... Should I continue? And come on: YOU NOW HAVE TO PAY FOR IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT (if there is any at all)?!?!? This is just getting ridiculous."
Pros: "Crew helped make the best out of out nearly 2 hour weather delayed flight."
Cons: "SFO to SEA is always prone to weather delays. Wish United would fly more from SJC."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. When I called United I was in hold for an hour only to be told that my airline was not United but Air Canada. When I called air canada I was on hold for another 45 minutes. They rescheduled my flight for another day. I lost one day of my vacation."
Pros: "The crew were professional"
Cons: "The worst thing is that they schedule a CRJ-70 on this flight. This would be tolerable if the obvious alternative was a turboprop, as if Montreal were a small town, like Flin Flon. But it is not; it is a large and important city, and it stinks that the demand is so low that airlines must use small aircraft on these routes. Is it because Canadian taxes are so high on airlines that fares in turn must be high and not stimulate demand? I can't think of any other reason connecting cities this size would be on crappy little aircraft rather than on at least an A320/737 family aircraft. The problem is that there is not enough room in the overhead bins to fit rollaboards, even small ones like mine. So they have to "gate check" the bag, which does not always reappear at the gate at the destination. Less bad than the choice of aircraft was the fact that after we pushed back, they couldn't get an engine started, so they cancelled the flight and reaccommodated us on a later flight."
