Cons: "At Mumbai airport, during check-in I was told that my carry on bag plus personal item together should weigh not more than 7kgs!! I have never had any airline actually weigh my personal item (laptop backpack) before this journey. Eventually I ended up stuffing my check-in bags with everything I was carrying in my carry on bag before I was allowed to check in. The weird thing is, I was never told about this rule on my journey from the US to India."
Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."

The hotel was good but getting there with the big bags for just a few hours and then the flight was scheduled for night (12 hrs later than original schedule) They could have just held the checked in baggage with them, or arranged an alternate aircraft to arrive sooner."

I wanted to have some grub at airport but there was no time."

Cons: "First of all, We were delayed 5 hours, I did not know finnair was operated by American Airlines(I wouldn’t never bought this thickets) we so many issues with AA in the past that we refused to fly with them, on top of all this they were trying to split us up(2 times) I bought 2 ticket for a reason..."

Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"

Pros: "New Plane interior"
Cons: "The flight from Miami to Sao Paulo was delayed, therefore, I lost the flight from Sao Paulo to Asunción, those from Latam did not give me any solution and they sent me to the people of American Airlines saying it was their fault.

Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and I missed a connection in Dallas so I had to get a flight with Delta, but the staff was very helpful getting me that flight."
Cons: "I purchased a WiFi pass and the WiFi did not work. Since the airplane does not have individual TV’s on each seat, it makes it for a very long flight. I also did not like that the passengers had to take a bus to the airplane and we’re shoved like sardines in a can in 95 degree weather."

Cons: "I got a lot of engine noise so I didn't enjoy the entertainment as much"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "Same as above. Very pleased"
Pros: "fairly comfortable, crew was helpful"
Cons: "Having to use my phone for entertainment, with no place to plug it in"

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"
Cons: "Seat 20f It was very uncomfortable and freezing My legs were sore after the journey. Besides until 30 seconds before actual boarding time the members didn't inform about the delay. Everybody had formed lines and we see people getting out only then."
Pros: "The flight was short and all went well."
Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."
Pros: "Flight was good, there was no entertaiment, so i put one, but the flight was only almost 4 hrs. At night."

Pros: "Great movie selection and beautiful plane!"
Pros: "everything on travel is good."
Pros: "Free in flight movies"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Older American Airlines plane had the old monitors showing cabin the same movies. Difficult to see and hurt my neck. You don't expect this on overseas flights."
Pros: "Staff was very nice; very courteous."
Cons: "We were delayed for 2 hours! I had a premium seat but still ended up boarding with Group 6. Almost ran out of room and had to check my roller. Not happy with late boarding given that when I booked my ticket, it said I'd have priority seating."
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Cons: "LATAM deboarded me from the flight after I had boarded. They claimed American had cancelled my reservation because they did not think I would make my connection. I ran in order to make it and then instead of offering me information on the next flight they left me stranded with instructions to find American. Terrible, terrible customer service. I will think twice before booking a LATAM flight again."
Pros: "My flight was very short. It was a straight flight and there was no turbulence. Flight pulled off when it was supposed and early landing."
Cons: "They rebooked my flight to one with an overnight layover and informed me via email with no explanation. I rerebooked it myself to one which left the next morning and arrived sooner than their rebooking."
Pros: "They have a huge selection of movies"
Cons: "They do not have gluten free options"
Pros: "roomy flight, great movie selection, food was great"
Pros: "I liked because it was my mom first international trip and she got all the support from the crew. She loved it!"
Pros: "On time. Quick boarding."
Cons: "Voar 8 horas de Miami para Sao Paulo sem entretenimento de bordo foi péssimo. Poucos filmes e nenhum com legenda em Português. Se o voo era pro Brasil acho que era o mínimo que se poderia esperar. A comida estava horrível."
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Pros: "We arrived to our destination safety."
Cons: "My seat was changed on me last minute without notifying me. I was moved away from my friends. It took a while to get this resolved with my seat. Once it was solved my chair was broken and could not recline. It took them 3 hours to get this fixed and were rude to me the entire time. I told them I had never been treated so poorly on a plane."
Pros: "I liked a lot about our flight, especially that we didn't crash."
Cons: "For a 12 hour flight a little more leg room would have been nice."

Cons: "Single worst airline ever"
Cons: "It is unacceptable that United is still submitting its customers in business class to old planes and very old seats - including rows with four seats looking backwards with no separation between the seats (with the same issue on the window seats, which are double seats). Dreadful flight - my fare shall be refunded in full."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Tight space and food could be better"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was very good."
Cons: "Departure was 45-60 minutes late because the plane arrived late. We sat on the runway for ~ 20 mins after landing in Chicago because there was no available jetway. Passport “spot check (?!) at jetway for all deplaning passengers created a slow crush once we left the plane."
Pros: "Seats, flight attendant"
Cons: "Boarding is still a bit of a mess given how many people are in Group 1 or better."
Pros: "I forgot my charger at the gate and the purser was so kind to help bring it back #unitedairlinecares"

Pros: "Overall wonderful trip"
Cons: "17L entertainment screen didn't work"
Cons: "Never will fly united again."
Cons: "Didn’t get bags transferred from United flight from Washington DC to the flight from Munchen to Athens. We made it to gate just in time. Bags did not. Maybe there is some way to increase layover time On this international flight. Thanks"
Pros: "Despite all the security checks, it was easy to board even in group 4. :)"
Cons: "Food was just mediocre. Would be nice to see a menu. They didn't offer slippers and the eye masks for the long flight. Comfort plus seats were spacious not really "comfortable:"
Cons: "The flight was about 9 hours delayed and I didn’t feel like anyone was trying to make up for it"
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed by 4 hours due tknsmong in India. I called United ahead of time to tell them I was not able to make my flight and if there was anyway I could get a new ticket. The representative was confident that 40 minutes between my flights at Delhi was enough time to make it despite me reminding her about the time it took to get off the plane, pick up my luggage, get through immigrations and travel to my terminal. She was very wrong. She insisted I call them when I land and that I go to the ticket booth. Little did she know that once I miss my flight my ticket is no longer valid and I was no longer able to enter the airport in India. Once I reached the entrance I was directed to a Untied booth all the way at the end of the terminal and was told to buy a new ticket. There was no United representative at this booth. I waited 3 hours and even called the number posted at the booth. No one picked up and no one came. I had wasted several hours. I ultimately decided to buy a ticket online spending another thousand dollars to get back home when I was told that I would be given a new ticket at the booth by United. But I had to wait another 24 hours outside the airport because I was not allowed in so early prior to my flight. Very unprofessional and unhelpful when I needed it the most."

Cons: "The plane was so unbelievably hot. The air hardly blew out of the vents. Also, they left the lights on the entire time on a flight that left at 10pm and arrived at 12:30pm (11:30pm local time). It made for a very uncomfortable ride"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. Crew was kind to allow me to use an empty seat in the middle row and get more space. Managed to connect to onboard entertainment with a tablet and avoided to use the tiny screen that still exists on United's 767s."
Cons: "Food was a bit tasteless."
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: "Clearly a recent D check plane, very clean and new interior"
Cons: "New screens are nice, but $8 to watch TV for a couple of hours? Take a hint from JetBlue, United, STOP NICKEL AND DIMING CUSTOMERS! This on top of there being two solid rows of economy comfort seating open, and not letting us move back one row to the economy comfort seats since ours wouldn't recline because they were in front of that exit row. On United website, it would've been $25 to upgrade each seat (not horrible), and the flight attendant told us we couldn't when we asked that they were $100+ seats and that there's nothing she could do. Thanks United. Guess I'll go back to being a JetBlue customer."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating to the fact that I was flying with a large service animal. They even brought him his own dinner. They were excellent people."
