American service was horrible especially in DFW

Cons: "Had to walk 2-3 miles and made transfers just to get to my gate"
Pros: "I used my miles to get the tickets."
Cons: "None of the crew smiled. They seemed like TSA agents that wanted to stop us from coming in. They seemed mad that we were using their airline."
Pros: "Even during a delay the crew remained professional. There was something wrong with the plan and I appreciate that safety was the main priority."
Cons: "My 1 hour layover turned into a four hours past 2am arrival."
Pros: "I did not take the flight, I stopped in Miami instead."
Cons: "Don’t know because I did not take this flight."
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 crew was amazing. The seats were very uncomfortable. I've flown Lufthansa many times and there is a big difference."
Cons: "Seats."
Pros: "Amazingly professional, informative crew despite having had been diverted at the last moment and dealing with multiple issues from laptop freezing, an uncooperative passenger and delayed take off. My hats off to this crew; we had a smooth landing and very pleasant experience on board."
Cons: "The terminal was under construction and extremely crowded. We could have used some help from the ground crew shepherding people, keeping hallways clear. Would probably be useful to not have gates immediately opposite each other both trying to board with space being so limited."
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: "It was on time"
Cons: "The crew, the flight attendant was very rude"
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"
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating, even on short flight"
Cons: "Good - no complaints."
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: "Flight attendants were great."
Pros: "The free entertainment was great! Left on time and arrive time. No lost bags and no incidents."

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: "Ontime. Friendly staff. Newer plane. Large overhead."
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Cons: "Person in front reclined the entire flight. I was squeezed in a a small box. Seats should not recline that much"
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."
Pros: "Vegetarian chickpea curry were delicious"

Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Cons: "The counter manager at PHX, Lanell Monarrez was a total witch and whispering to Lanya in front of me was very unprofessional.

Pros: "The pilot apologized for the delay and promised to get us there as quick as he can, if that was possible. But, it was thoughtful of him."
Cons: "Although I was informed that the flight was delayed, it was too late, I was already at the airport. A two delay ended up being three hours delay. When it was time to board, we had to wait for a crew member, further delaying boarding. Finally on the flight, I was served cold coffee!!! There was no blanket!"
Cons: "Crew member in first class not polite at all... And there was no food on a 5hr flight even in first class."

Pros: "On time flights"
Cons: "All ok"
Cons: "Slow with drinks and food, late departure"
Cons: "They need to learn from asian airlines (specifically Thai Airways)"

Cons: "NA"

Cons: "This flight and three others arrive into Dublin at 5:00 am This is a bizarre time to arrive at a destination"
Pros: "I LIKED THE WAY I WAS TREATED BY PERSONNEL AT FLIGHT DEPARTURE ZONES ESPECIALLY IN VANCOUVER AND CHICAGO. WHEN BOARDING THE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE POLITE AND HELPFUL IN GETTING MY CARRY ON SUITCASE PROPERLY STOWED."
Cons: "THE OPTION TO WATCH TV WAS NOT USED AS I PREFER READING AND CHATTING WITH FELLOW PASSENGERS AND I DID BOTH!"
Pros: "Crew. Club soda. Safe landing."
Cons: "Pay for movie. Delayed plane that landed 10 minutes after boarding for connecting flight which was last flight of the night."
Pros: "Take off and landing very good"

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"

It would be revolutionary if one airline valued their guests and showed it! Instead of cattle they manage and transport"
Pros: "It was a sparsely populated flight, I was able to lay down and sleep, very nice!"
Cons: "No problems, al was fine and I slept very well. No complaints!"
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: "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."
Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."

Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."

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."

Cons: "Small plane, last row of seats are the pits"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Your refund or rescheduling policies."
Pros: "Was quick enough and on time."
Cons: "Please start charging obese customers more money for their tickets. Seat I was in had me squished because the other passenger was so big. Its not fair that I have to give up half of my seat."
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....."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "awful handling of the flight delay with lack of info and updates. We were told we were boarding in twenty minutes for four hours."
Pros: "Another normal flight."
Cons: "Check in troubles. Couldn't check in online. Agents had some trouble locating our reservations. Security was a lengthy process. Big brother type operation going through customs."
Pros: "Great flight with no issues or any problems. Flight on time, luggage transfer was fine, crew pleasant and helpful. Smooth sailing."
Cons: "We don't take advantage of entertainment on board."
Cons: "Constant 5 - 30 minute email updates stating flight delay. The delayed started at 30 minutes and ended in being 3 hours. The stated reason changed just as frequently."
Pros: "Crew and services"
Cons: "in flight movies were not free while most other airlines offer passenger free in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Did know till we got on the flight that if we wanted entertainment that we had to down load a appt. so that was annoying."
Pros: "Not much to like about United these days, just basic cattle car service and nickel and dime you for everything."
Cons: "Cramped seats, poor entertainment choices, basic uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "For an international flight, we had to pay for meals and for entertainment."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Didn't fly this leg on United, but rather on Air Canada."
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!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."
Pros: "There was a medical emergency on board and the crew, especially the African American stewardess is to be commended for her (their) responsiveness. The flight was pleasant, however I could not give an excellent rating. To give an excellent rating would meant his flight or airline stood out above all others."
