                                          So nice to get free carry-on plus complimentary snacks and drinks in coach with AA. Last flight with Frontier there were charges for all those.

                                          Flight takeoff delayed for de-icing plane; no hot coffee available; probably weather-related issues made it a so-so experience. Service people did their best.

                                          Appeared to be a newer plane and better designed than others.

                                          The two flight attendants were excellent! Flight was diverted to Indianapolis with unknown outcome. They were calm yet assertive and focused on problem resolution for all. I was grateful to be on their flight under their guidance! Professional, personable, wise, resourceful, great sense of humor and thoughtful. I am a frequent flyer on many airlines and these two flight attendants stand out in their field.

                                          Will try very hard not to fly with American Airlines again.

                                          Delays. Missed one whole day due delays and cancellation fee

                                          Jan 28, 2019

                                          Terrible staff and experience. When the bag was lost, then found I was told it would be 4-6 hours before they could bring it to the hotel or I would have to pick it up earlier. I will be avoiding United at all cost on all future flights! It was miserable!!!!

                                          Nov 24, 2018

                                          Staff was extremely rude and my seat belt was broken

                                          I made it to the next gate in time, but not let on to my plane.

                                          Aug 12, 2018

                                          Flight was delayed 3 hours. They just kept pushing the delay back by half an hour instead of just telling us what time the plane would arrive.
