The waiting area in panama was super crowded, and hot
Given Covid protocols, it is still baffling to me how these planes can be so overcrowded. But the flight in general was okay.
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Connections great"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Amazing plane, great service, Air. Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Get the 787 back to this route."
Cons: "San Salvador gate is to small, everybody on top of each other"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Cons: "This is my first time that I travel to US form dec 18 and have to pay for luggage. I can understand if that’s a company policie, but maybe I can flight in another airline that’s doesn’t have any variable fees."
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Pros: "Great price!"
Cons: "More food."
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the flight was ahead of schedule."
Cons: "They take my hand luggage in there are lost I don’t know what to do now"
Cons: "The aircraft was very cramped. Water and some solid items leaked onto my head from the overbin."
Cons: "Flight got delayed missed my connecting flight rebooking options are garbage. Hotel was not accepting people from AA. Their shuttle company at MIA airport showed up 35 minutes late"
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "People on the planes were nice"
Cons: "The guy at the gate in france made me check my bag, he said it was due to the size but people were walking by with bigger bags and he didn't seem to care about them at all. Not sure why he singled me out. Also took my passport, which he wasn't doing for other passengers and told me to board the plane. I had to ask multiple times for him to return my passport. Not sure if it was his first day or something but it was a very frustrating experience."
Pros: "food,movies, prices"
Cons: "Flight delayed almost 2 hours"
Cons: "Our flight was overbooked and we were moved to a later flight causing a 7 hour layover and arrived at 2am the following morning."
Pros: "How the pilot flew faster from New Bern to Charlotte because we were 3 hours behind schedule, so I appreciate his effort."
Cons: "Right from the start, customer service was not compassionate in helping out. I was forced to leave my huge luggage behind in order to make it to the next available flight. In addition, American Airlines continued delaying their flight departure times like it was no big deal.. It was stressful for many passengers. This other woman and I had a second plane to get onto, and were worried that we wouldn’t be able to get to the next plane ride because the first plane ride was pushed back like around 10 times or so. This is my first experience with American Airlines, and absolutely do not have a good impression whatsoever. I do not support this airline because it is clear that they do not value their customer’s satisfaction, wellbeing, or schedules."
Cons: "Having to pay for wifi"
Cons: "American wins tge coach torture contest!"
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "For an obviously new aircraft the space between rows was horrendous. I am 5ft4in tall and when I sat down my knees touched the seat in front of me. When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."
Cons: "Food service was not announced. Take off was delayed one hour"
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "The attention and services"
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Cons: "There was no individual entertainment on board (TV’s, internet, etc)"
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "Food & Entertainment were good. Thankfully the crew seemed to have waited for us."
Cons: "We were late, so some guy took my seat. Attendant was annoyed that I didn't just take any open seat. I wanted the seat I purchased, near my wife. The other passenger didn't gain anything by taking my middle seat as he travelled alone."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Cons: "Delay due to mechanical glitch which should have been checked before boarding"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Pros: "Everything, the plane was big and comforting, the fly attendants were very courteous and professional. Awesome fly."
Pros: "All was good ..."
Cons: "The dinner alternatives were not available for everyone ... probably because we were sitting close to the last row of seats. That is not acceptable because everyone is paying the same regardless were you are seated."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Just getting through immigration in Miami fl."
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems."
Cons: "Seats far too close together even for cosch"
Cons: "El vuelo partió casi 1 hora de retraso lo que significó que debí correr para alcanzar mi siguiente vuelo."
Cons: "The security at the gate is poorly organized. Even though there are bathrooms at the gate, security will not let you use them! You must leave the gate, walk down the hall to the bathrooms, and then reenter the gate and be searched again!! This is a problem that can be easily fixed but they need more people speaking up before they will. Wheni spoke with people, Security blamed it on United and United blamed it on the security."
Pros: "Seat was roomier. Food was good."
Cons: "To actually be on it would’ve been awesome"
Pros: "The sits are a little stiff and doesn’t tilt back much but for the price I guess it’s what you get"
Cons: "A bigger and better snack would be best"
Pros: "Food was actually quite decent"
Cons: "In-seat entertainment systems malfunctioned for roughly half the flight, which was quite disappointing"
Cons: "The unplanned layover in HNL was very poorly handled."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "A child kicking the back of my seat the entire flight"
Pros: "Crew were great, especially considering we had a couple of mishaps travelling with a five year old and five month old. Despite being a mega long flight it was comfortable and we were well looked after."
Cons: "Seats are a little narrow on the exit rows and bulkhead as the armrests accommodate the TV and tables. This also means they can’t be moved. Not unique to Air NZ though."
Pros: "Space on the airplane"
Cons: "Small seats, tiny bathrooms"
Pros: "I got super lucky and had three seats to myself, it's a long flight just over 12hrs and good sleep is precious. The entertainment options were excellent and I watched some great first run movies. Food was quite good with options, beverage service standard. Restrooms were readily accessible and "clean.""
Cons: "We left SFO an hour late waiting for a handful of late passengers - good for them though, eh? The rest of the passengers on plane were packed in like sardines. Seemed to me that too much space on plane dedicated to the premium 'cabins' for the uber rich, but they were interesting to look at."
Cons: "Check in clerk was mean nasty and said several times we could not fly because we didn’t have our tickets rather then helping us use the airport printer to print our tickets she said you can’t print you ticket until you show me your ticket. She should be fired it was united airlines won’t fly them again"
Cons: "Boarded the plane later to be asked to switched planes because of mechanical problems with the first one. After boarding the second 2 hour delayed plane my family and I were asked to step off the plane and go to the front desk because they made the mistake to give several people the same seats. It was horrible, and embarrassing. My family, friends and I will definitely won’t be flying eith United."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I did not like it at all!!!!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Chairs hard"
Cons: "My grabdmother was on the flight a almost 80 yrs old woman dont know english who was put in a diferent waiting area to another flight that wasn't her ended up that the person who was suppost to transport her was new and now she gotta wait to catch another flight to get ti Indianapolis at 7:30 pm 12 hours for a almost 80 yrs old woman is too much not happy at all with delta"
Cons: "None for this flight."
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: "The seats food drinks and comfortable chairs."
Cons: "There was a delay."
Pros: "Crew were amazing, so friendly and helpful Entertainment system was so so good Landed early"
Cons: "Overnight wasn't the easiest flight in the seats Serving people coffee when others are probably trying to sleep probably wasn't the wisest idea either Pre flight queue system is just baffling"
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food was terrible the service wasn't great not even one the flight attendant walked by and offered bottles of water or dessert besides the 2 meals served. The restroom always were out of tissu paper and were not maintained."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, no complaints about the trip."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable and I was in premium seating."
Cons: "No food I was hungry .. because In the airport I didn't have time and they just give cookies lol"
Cons: "Poor customer service from the begging to end on day of arrival Crew had poor attitude gave wrong information about bag prices. When asked they told me there was a misunderstanding. on our way to El Salvador. Due to weather we had to stop at guatemla a lot of people were ready to walk around since a 3 hour flight became a 6 just sitting around a attendant was very disrespectful towards an older lady told her to get out her way and moved her to the side. Me and another gentleman look at eachother and couldn't believe it"
Cons: "Advertised great price that did not include luggage and changes were not permitted. Cancellation within 24 hours."
Pros: "Flights to be on time"
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "Wasn't able to find my luggage as fast"
Pros: "The flight was very nice the Captain did an awesome job flying and the flight was awesome seeing the fireworks from the sky."
Cons: "I had to run to customs to pass by then I had to run to luggage check in run to the shuttle to catch to terminal hurry through security and then my luggage is still not found or waiting to land in Dallas from Chicago."
Pros: "United has a lot of issues but I can handle it...."
Cons: "I was so upset that when I went to El Salvador and when I came back UNITED charged me for my bag and my partrner bag too... I spent another 125 USD for that and you guys never say a word about it before ... that is not fair at all...."
Cons: "Entire staff was cranky from check-in/crew/post-cancelation at gate in Houston. Was really hoping for a positive experience since united hasn't been getting good reviews."
Pros: "It was a jet"
Cons: "But the captain was missing for over an hour"
Cons: "Give something else to eat free."
Pros: "Random seating was okay & the newer planes are nice."
Cons: "The representative at the gates were very unfriendly and rude to passengers. They did not create a welcoming environment. There need to be more outlets in the waiting area and the outlets that are there should work."

Pros: "Crew worked hard and were terrific."
Pros: "Perfect, the service is great !!"
Pros: "Good time of day flight"
Cons: "Very cramped small plane"
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Cons: "Where do I begin with this experience, It all starts with a 200 dollar fee for surfboards. Highest of any airline I've ever seen. And ended with delays on every leg of the flight (all Maintnence issues ) and lost boards in Texas. Do not fly this airline, they are the worst"
Pros: "Wheelchair assistance"
Cons: "Crowded gate"
Cons: "Baggage pick up"
Cons: "Fly being delayed for more than 6 hours"
Cons: "Absence of food on International Flight. Tight seating. Old plane. Lack of free entertainment."
