Because of turbulence we were not served anything unless we asked for it. But flight attendants were very nice and accommodating.
I have American Airlines Gold member but I do not think they care for it. No priority boarding, nothing. I felt like I should have gone many other flights which were lot cheaper than it.
Entertainment was very plentiful, staff were courteous. Seating was HORRIBLE. That is the most cramped I’ve ever been on any flight …Jet Blue and Spirit included. Very uncomfortable for a six hour trip.
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Crew members were okay"
Cons: "Wifi could be better"
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "tv screens on the back of seats"
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: "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: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."
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: "We got to our destination aver 12 hours late."
Cons: "In addition to being rebooked approximately 12 hours after our original flight, this flight left about 40 minutes late."
Cons: "the tremendous pressure from the staff, at the American Airlines. Never before experience such a low and virtually feel like an inmate, Just because the person in doing so, was profiling and that is NO GOOD , also the airport is filthy and dirty , Nobody Cares...I will not come again as a tourist to that country.. American Airlines should train the staff to be more courteous and not to ask that many questions ..it feels like you where in Siberia.."
Pros: "Left on time, service was good."
Pros: "PHX. This is the airport we flew out of. That’s it. I mean, come on. The airport has nothing to do with it. That’s how bad."
Cons: "Plane got delayed because of a malfunction. We were on the ground for about 1 hour extra. And pretty much everything else about the flight sucked."
Pros: "Arrived slightly early. The crew was efficient and friendly. The interior and seats looked new."
Cons: "Nothing was negative."
Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"
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: "Pasta good. Meatballs we're bad. Breakfast vegetable burrito was bad"
Cons: "Very bumpy ride for such a big plane. Don't know why we didn't fly higher to get over the turbulence"
Pros: "Friendly crew and on time arrival we great. Seats are closer on all flights so comfort has suffered. Hard to use a laptop on the tray in economy. Lavatories all in good order and abundant entertainment choices for a domestic flight."
Cons: "As mentioned above the seat distances are tight in economy."
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."

Pros: "The crew was great! They did big effort to speak in Spanish! And also they are kind in every thing!"
Pros: "Flight was cancelled after 5 hours"
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."
Cons: "I paid 800.00 and no breakfast order lunch served."
Pros: "Everything ran on time, which was surprising because I've heard horror stories, but I was surprised. Would definitely fly again."
Cons: "The landing was ROUGH!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "1. No individual monitors. The pull down shared monitors are antiquated and not the standard now. 2. Would not fly AA from SJU again because of this. Unless I preloaded my iPad with movies."
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: "Flight oversold. Couldn't use online system to book flight, so went 3 hours early to check in. Told couldn't check in still, had to do it at the gate. Then flight delayed two hours. No communication."
Pros: "Fabulous crew and service, absolutely fantastic."
Cons: "Having to get off!"
Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"
Pros: "The flight schedule"
Cons: "The hardens of the seats. Rather seat on the floor"

Great overall experience, thank you!

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: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Lots of movies, reasonable seats, arrived early."
Cons: "I'm 6'0" tall and have to pay extra to get enough leg room, one very grumpy flight attendant, mediocre dinner, very unappetizing breakfast"
Cons: "Movie selection wasn't very good, and the touch screens aren't sensitive enough, so I could feel the person behind me poking the screen really hard to make selections."
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: "The flight was relatively short and uneventful."
Cons: "The workers at the airport, airline door, and flight attendants were all very rude. After sitting in LAX traffic for over 2 hours, they could’ve at least attempted to be friendly and helpful. I swore I’d never fly United again, and this solidified my opinion."
Cons: "Brussels Airlines flight was operated by United Airlines. United Airlines lied and charged us $120 when out should have been free for luggage. United Airlines are a bunch of rapists. United airlines screws people. Do not fly United Airlines. I called United Airlines to verify baggage policy before i flew and they said follow brussels Airlines bag policy. Liers. United airlines is the worst Airlines ever...DO NOT FLY UNITED AIRLINES."
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: "Boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The space between seats was very uncomfortable. I have never felt so crowded in a plane seat and would reconsider United in the future for that reason."
Pros: "The crew could not have been more friendly and accommodating."
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: "Flight switched, old plane operated by Privelage Style, 0 entertainment and poor service throughout the 7 + hours from Chicago, flight an hour delayed as well"
Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Delayed delayed delayed"
Pros: "Crew was great. Very friendly and accommodating ."
Cons: "When we landed we waited 30 minutes to get to our gate. There was nowhere for the plane to disinbark."
Cons: "Our flight was an hour and a half late. The seats are very new on this configuration is perfect. The entertainment system is old and you pay for everything."
Cons: "they canceled the flight and put us on american airlines wich was terrible"
Pros: "Easy enough to get on and stow my carry on."
Cons: "Narrow as all hell. Also, somewhere between Tucson and Nashville the baggage guys played football with my case. I ended up with broken gifts and a suitcase full of crushed cookies after the damn container is broken as well."
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: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Intercom anouncements on late night flight. Way too many about the ball game"
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: "It was a pretty smooth flight and it was pretty well organized."
Cons: "The plane was in the Houston hanger most of the day, but it seems they didn't test it. Even after being delayed on the ground due to rain and a mechanical problem with the ramp for three hours, the plane had to turn around and come back to Houston due to another mechanical issue. Finally left 13.5 hours late. I did receive a hotel room, breakfast and 10,000 miles compensation for the hassle, but I would rather have been in Brazil on time."
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: "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!"
Cons: "United delayed the flight. This information became available about an hour in advance- well after we drove two hours (We live in Montana) to get to the airport. The attendants said / not our problem. I called United's Customer Service number to discuss ways of mediating the delay that resulted in us missing the wedding venue and entire reason we booked the $1400 flight. I again got a "not my problem" response- no the flights can be modified, no we will not provide vouchers, no we really don't care that our poor quality and service cost you and your family tremendously in time, effort, and lost memories. I know we are at the mercy of airlines, but what a painful disappointment. My experience with Delta has been better and I suggest avoiding United Airlines if other flight options exist.... Even consider a very long drive over the use of the airline."
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."
Cons: "Zero leg room. I am 5' 9'' and my knees touched the seat in front of me. The bathroom lines extended half way down the plane for the majority of the flight."
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: "It was easy to check in"
Cons: "The crying baby in the back"
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."
Cons: "Not enough space for your legs"
Pros: "Nice terminal"
Cons: "United is chronically late"
