Airline reviews

Pros: "The crew was super polite, even with the delay."
Cons: "I wish the seats were more comfortable."

Pros: "The crew did great"
Cons: "During covid-19 they are not even attempting at providing a modicum of social distancing. Every seat in both of my flights was completely filled, meaning that we were squished up next to everyone despite any efforts to stay 6ft away from each other in the airports. Many passengers were wearing their masks incorrectly (not covering their nose, TAKING OFF THE MASK TO SNEEZE) and were not being asked to wear their mask properly by staff. I felt completely unsafe and won't be flying American again until there is a vaccine for covid."

Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"

Cons: "The plane is falling apart. Overhead bins broken. Dripping water. No water in bathroom Tray tables don’t retract."

Pros: "Nice crew, short flight, comfortable."

Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."

Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."

Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."

Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"

Pros: "The seat was comfy, even though the flight was delayed in takeoff by 45 min. It was nice to hear from the captain. It makes you feel more like you're having a good experience."
Cons: "Delays happen. But snacks offered during a delay known to be longer than 30 min would've made many passengers happier. It's hard to stay happy when other people around you are complaining."

Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"

Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."

Pros: "Comfortable seats and snack / drinks service"
Cons: "Delayed flight departure and bumpy landing"

Pros: "Variety of snacks and friendly service. Good entertainment selection."
Cons: "Signs for Finnair and AA were hard to find on departure."

Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."

Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."

Pros: "Crew was efficient and cordial"
Cons: "Overhead bins are small so they take rolling luggages down. Would have been good to know ahead of time d/t fragile items in carry-on"

Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "In 2 weeks, my husband and I had 4 flights with American and none of them went as planned. We endured flight cancellation, incomplete rebooking with another airline, rude customer service agents, multiple flight delays as well as multiple day lost luggage. Finally, it cost $2K more to get to my destination. Obviously not flying American again."

Pros: "On time! That pretty much says it all. I think American did a great job at everything they had control of."
Cons: "Having connecting flights that seem like they are miles apart. I’m sure there is a good reason for this but it is annoying to have to change concourses at these huge airports."

Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."

Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."

Pros: "Nice newer model plane"
Cons: "The usual...cramped seating. Boarding was very slow."

Pros: "Great crew. Great entertainment but. Ot so comfort."
Cons: "I was in a window but have a big person in my side and can't move in 3 hours."

Pros: "The pilot and co-pilot took the time to answer my question about turbulence. They were very friendly. I appreciated that."
Cons: "There is insufficient legroom in coach, especially when the passenger in front of me reclines."

Pros: "economy plus was worth the money"
Cons: "Flight attendants horrible refused to serve drinks or snacks due to "turbulence" But there was no turbulence. Then when passengers complained they served water only and splashed it into cups on the trays instead of pouring it into cups and handing the cups to the passengers. Nasty people."

Pros: "not much"
Cons: "They overbooked every flight of the day (total of 4) and offered us no solution except what as standby and try to get on next days flight. Very bad form and they were not helpful in finding a solution. we finally rented a car and drove home over 8 hours- still trying to get the rental car cost reimbursed....and oh yeah they completed tore apart my METAL GUN CASE!!!!"

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was very well organized."
Cons: "The plane had a very good entertainment system with a lot of good movies, but the flight had no earphones available, so only the passengers that had their own ear/headphones could use it. Other than that, the flight attendants were not kind in any way and items present in the onboard menu, were not available, as I asked for Pringles and there was none. I did not see anybody eating some food in this flight, other than the mini pretzels served. How a 3hour flight arriving at 09 PM, had no food onboard?"

Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."

Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."

Cons: "Very cold airplane"

Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Arrived 1 hr before my flight and they wouldn't check me in. I believe they overbook the flight and turn customer down. They even gave me hard time during rebooking us. Never again."

Cons: "No preliminary information that no meals are included."

Cons: "The seat I had reserved was given away even though I paid extra for it back in February. American Airlines rep said it was because when i book through a 3rd party like Kayak, they can't guarantee my seat assignment."

Cons: "Cero entretaintment"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional"

Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."

Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"

Cons: "Small seats, no wifi, no chargers, terrible entertainment."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"

Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"

Cons: "Poor customer service"

Pros: "Like the entertainment selection with the gogo app. Just wish there were power outlets to charge my device while watching. Old plane didnt have any"
Cons: "people suck at boarding and there are too many priority classes (i'm gold)"

Cons: "The WiFi for the personal entertainment system wasn’t working properly"

Pros: "I finally arrived."
Cons: "More communication about delay and lost luggage."

Cons: "A mechanic issue with a fan in the cargo hold kept us from boarding for 40 minutes. Once we boarded and got out onto the tarmack they discovered an issue with the GPS. We sat for 2 hours before going back to the gate. Maintenance came on and fixed it. Then we took off.. 3 hours late"

Cons: "Everything. We were incredibly delayed which happens but none of the staff knew what was happening. Different passengers were told different things and when we tried to ask questions they were far from helpful. It was not a good experience at all."

Cons: "Plane had no entertainment"

Pros: "The crew, the speed (we arrived early), the boarding."
Cons: "NA"

Cons: "Faster boarding"

Cons: "Saw many backpacks inefficiently stored overhead, yet I was told to check in my carry on even though I had paid to upgrade my seat. Staff extremely unhelpful and clueless."

Pros: "Got to gate on time. Attendants nice, good service"
Cons: "seats of course. No room anymore"

Pros: "Crew was cheerful."
Cons: "Bring your own everything, even your own entertainment. Download the app before you fly so you can watch 20 year old movies."

Cons: "0% leg room :("

Pros: "We upgraded to business so it was great. Crew was especially attentive."
Cons: "Couldn't recharge the iPhone. No plug."

Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."

Cons: "Unassigned seating from the beginning of the trip made the trip arduous."

Pros: "The flight was nice and the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough"

Cons: "Late flight and can't catch next flight on time:("

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "Staff was great, and the few delays that occurred were fairly minimal and it was clear that the staff/pilot did their best to keep things timely"
Cons: "These seats and spaces are incredibly small, my body is so sore! Also the internet costs money? I've travelled with other airlines that include Wi-Fi for free"

Pros: "Flight crew was nicer, and it ran on time."

Pros: "Good job."
Cons: "Could not get movies to play on iPad or Mac book pro."

Cons: "I didn't like buying a ticket for a flight with an ANA number and advertised as ANA but then flying United. I don't want to fly united."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Indifferent staff, absolutely no customer service Flight late, no food, no entertainment, seats extremely cramped, packed in like sardines, no personality at all, just attitude- get through it, provided basics, waited 20 min for first bag to appear in luggage carousel too, nothing good about it! It would be revolutionary if one airline valued their guests and showed it! Instead of cattle they manage and transport"

Pros: "They at least had the option for live TV on one of the flights, but wanted $8, when Southwest gives it to you free."
Cons: "The gate agent also just seemed and unpleasant in general. The leg room is the worst in the industry, it's absolutely terrible"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "-Jolene at the United check in at the Vancouver airport loves to discriminate -No WiFi on a 5+ hour flight -Old clunky planes -Poor service overall -Noticed employees using their phones constantly instead of helping paying Customers"

Cons: "Unfortunately the first leg of our flight was delayed over an hour. Although we made our connecting flight (barely), our luggage didn't make it onto the plane. It was OK since it was our return flight and we received our luggage later the next day."

Pros: "At least the seats had power outlets."
Cons: "Crew appeared to hate their jobs, only peanuts and water for a 2.5hr flight. Plane was good but united sucks."

Cons: "I don't understand why you don't load from the back of the plane first, it just makes more sense."

Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Awful service,"

Pros: "It really was great. On time, crew was helpful and friendly"

Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."

Pros: "It had been years since we last flew UNITED. Honestly, we were a bit apprehensive after learning of friends' negative experiences but we moved forward with our plan. The flight was smooth, and ahead of schedule and the crew was totally on top of their game. SPOT ON!"
Cons: "If I would make ANY suggestion, it would be to load people from the back of the plane to expedite loading. Your current 'zone' approach results in lots of waiting for passengers lo sitting in the back....as the front passenger's mess around, trying to get themselves situated...CLUELESS that there are a hundred others WAITING in the aisle, as they tussle with their sweaters, purses, tech equipment, etc. (if you get my gist!). Just something to consider....."

Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "The flight attendants were really courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was not anything that I did not like"

Pros: "Headphone slot. Free wifi"
Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"

Cons: "Cramped seats, poor entertainment choices, basic uncomfortable seating."

Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."

Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."

Pros: "Kayak was not aware that my flight was changed to another airline. Great notification!!!!!"
