Pros: "Yes"

Cons: "The entertainment apps were difficult to use"

Pros: "WiFi entertainment system."
Cons: "Hard seats, no arm padding. No power to recharge phone and iPad."

Cons: "American Airlines continues to lag in their ability to proactively communicate updates to their customers. Then to top it off, they lack empathy and a true ability to accommodate customers."

Pros: "Crew on board are great."
Cons: "American keeps canceling and changing schedules. They cancelled flight section and took it out of my itinerary. Then took over 3 calls and 2 hours on hold to fix."

Pros: "I was on time"
Cons: "Compensation for your mistakes"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Gate D60 is the gate from hell. I was told to go to a different number gate 3 times, and no direction board to reference. Worst airport ever. The staff are rude and could not understand most overhead announcements because their accents and talking super fast."

Cons: "2.5 hour delay on the ground - very poor communication from Crew"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The spacing between rows, the aisle and size of seats were terrible. I will go back flying British Airways and Lufthansa!!!!!"

Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "Paid $330.00 +/- for a one way ticket. Some how i messed up on the date and had it for 8/3/18 instead of 8/2/18. Had to pay an additional $500 + for the change. I understand that the fault didn't lie with AA, however, the rate for changing the ticket borders on the ridiculous. I have to travel quite a bit as of late for work, I am doing all i can to Avoid using American. There were others on the flight that paid for first class that didn't pay as much as me and i was stuck in boarding group 6. It really feels as though American is only in it for the dollars, not the customer service."

Pros: "We got to our destination aver 12 hours late."
Cons: "In addition to being rebooked approximately 12 hours after our original flight, this flight left about 40 minutes late."

Pros: "The trip was fast and efficient. The crew was very friendly and we had no issues."

Cons: "lots of branding stuff-watching any video had you go through 3 minutes of commercials. I must have watched the same commercials over 20 times."

Pros: "It was a really fast flight. Twenty minutes from wheels-up to wheels-down."
Cons: "Plane is more suitable for passengers under 5'11". At 6'7", I wasn't an ideal passenger!"

Pros: "Crew friendly.Flight arrived early.Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."

Pros: "The plane had really soft, puffy, comfy headrests. These were the best headrests I've ever encountered on any flight. I wish these were on every plane."
Cons: "1. Departure gate gets inexplicably moved to an entirely different concourse. 2. Gate agent offers to check bags through to destination, then when I go up, offers to gate-tag my bag. Why did you say you could check the bags through, then? 3. The long, ridiculous AA boarding process consisting of 9 groups and 2 short lanes, taking about 20 minutes to get 30 people outside. 4. 30 people wander around outside on the tarmac, trying to find a sign for Albuquerque. 5. BAGGAGE HANDLERS tell some of the passengers that the planes have been switched, and we should now board the plane marked Flagstaff. 6. Gate agents come outside, receive information from -- again -- BAGGAGE HANDLERS -- and then tell everyone to go back inside. 7. Once inside, gate agents tell passengers they have no idea what is going on, where they will be departing from, or when. 8. Gate agents tell passengers to go through the (long, ridiculous) boarding process a second time, and get on the second plane on the left. 9. A couple of PASSENGERS remind the gate agent that the baggage handlers specifically said that plane was not going to Albuquerque. 10. Gate agents change their minds, and tell passengers to get on a different plane. 11. We finally get on the damn plane."

Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"

Cons: "Nothing was negative."

Cons: "Good flight!"

Cons: "Boarding chaos at Miami airport."

Cons: "On my particular row of seats the power outlets were dead. The flight attendant tried to reset, which reset the entertainment but the outlet remained dead. Used the USB port to charge."

Pros: "Timely I have no complaints. The flight went well."
Cons: "Timely I have no complaints. The flight went well."

Cons: "Seating. Plus our previous flights on American were horrible. Too many delays to note. (Late plane, mechanical issues, boarded anyway, sat on plane 2 hours, sent to a new gate, delayed, boarded, sat on new plane 2hrs waiting for food truck (chips), etc. Trip from hell"

Pros: "Quick and easy boarding"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"

Pros: "Boarding was quick, but rushed."
Cons: "- plane was extremely hot, no A/C until boarding was complete and on the runway. So about 45 minutes of heat. - no entertainment units - no food, just pretzels and cookies, one drink - seats not comfortable, even with Main Cabin Extra"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the plane​approximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."

Pros: "Fabulous crew and service, absolutely fantastic."
Cons: "Having to get off!"

Cons: "Crowded seating, smaller seats."

Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."

Pros: "Entertainment was free."
Cons: "Had to wait for mechanical issues so we were delayed."

Pros: "All"

Pros: "Boarding was smooth. Flight was on time. Some weather en route but pilot was able to avoid the turbulence. Overall a good flight."
Cons: "Unrelated to the flight- but immigration and customs in Grand Cayman was slow. 200+ people arrived on this plane and there ware 4 immigration agents although they had more stations. We spent about a half hour in line in each- immigration and then customs. Rental cars is another situation to be aware of regarding insurance."

Cons: "American delayed the flight 7 times before cancelling it. They then put me on a flight 7 hours after the initial departure time. That flight was delayed 7 times and then they cancelled it. I wasted 10 hours at the airport."

Cons: "Horrible disorganization at boarding. Board from back to front for goodness sake...its common sense."

Pros: "The flight attendant was nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost 2 hours. Then when we got on the plane we sat on the runway for over 2 hours. We weren't offered any food or beverage until after 2 hours of sitting on the runway. First class was given drinks before the plane even went to the runway. They were very inconsiderate of us in coach. First class was more important. All we got was a drink and crackers after 2 hours of sitting on the runway"

Pros: "While waiting to board an American pilot sat next to me and was very pleasant. I appreciated his conversation."
Cons: "Delayed getting out of Sacramento. The connection anxiety was intense. we landed as my connection was boarding. De-planing was chaotic and un informed. Seemed like we stood a good 10 mins before the doors opened...some info would have helped. Sometimes they give the gate numbers and everybody on that plane needed to go somewhere. the attendants were not helpful, the one announcer had an accent, a little hard to understand and asked that we all be kind...ok that I can do."

Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Cons: "Boarding and deplaning always takes a long time."

Pros: "Had the whole of 3 seats to myself. Was a fast and pleasant and direct flight. Flight attendants gave me the option to take the row. Nice of her."
Cons: "Food selection and tastiness ... room for improvement."

Pros: "It’s actually United airline in service. The first flight from Brussels to Washington, everything was great! The crews were amazing, food was surprisingly good. The flight from Washington to Los Angeles was extremely terrible, crews were rude and impatient. Service is like budgeted airlines."
Cons: "More comparable service throughout the journey."

Pros: "No, uncomfortable seats and cramped, forced to check bags"
Cons: "Another airline"

Pros: "Lots of leg room!"

Cons: "The seats to close ,tv did not work"

Pros: "It got us to London. My bags were quickly available."
Cons: "The seats were SO. UNCOMFORTABLE. I didn't sleep at all and have a headache because of them. Absolutely atrocious. The food was meh. One of the flight attendants was so rude I dreaded every time she headed over. I'll be flying with Delta in the future."

Cons: "Storms in Newark caused a huge delay - not the airlines fault, they did the best that they could in the situation."

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Delay of over 1-1/2"

Pros: "The flight from BHM to DEN (my connection) was re-routed due to poor weather in DEN. What was supposed to be a 3-hr flight, turned into a 5-hr flight. Thank goodness my layover was originally 3.5 hrs, so that extra time in the air cut into that wait time at the airport, but at least waiting at the airport would allow me to move around and stretch my legs, and not be stuck in THE tiniest plane seat I've ever experienced."
Cons: "Being stuck on the plane for 2 hours longer than the original flight time of 3 hours made my legs ache. The seats were SO incredibly tiny, and there is very little room in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of you. You can't fit a water bottle, and barely my tiny purse or e-reader device. Please do away with these super-tiny seats."

Pros: "Crew on board was good"

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "The people on the plane were friiendly enough, the customer service once we were on the ground was terrible"

Even if there was weather, they didn't hold our outbound flight and missed it by 15 minutes. Didn't comp us for a hotel, had to stay in Jersey out of pocket, Jersey is busy, dirty, smelly, and overcrowded. Not enough infrastructure for the people.

Pros: "On time. Organize boarding"

Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful and went as expected."
Cons: "We were instructed to hand in our hand luggage before boarding the plane which meant we had to wait in a long one after the flight to get the luggage back.

We were told by the cabin staff that the gate personnel don't always check what size plane it is before requiring everyone to hand in their luggage."

Pros: "The crew for the most part was friendly and courteous!"
