Arrived early but then sat on the tarmac for 1 hour
It took a long time to board. The real problem was the flight though. It was a little noisy (not the airlines fault) and incredibly hot.
Extraordinary service in difficult times.
Pros: "Crew was very sweet!"
Cons: "Plane was much warmer than any flight I’ve been on - lots of people visibly sweating (don’t know if any others complained besides me). Seat was pretty uncomfortable (17D)"
Cons: "Lots of turbulence, but well-handled by the pilot. All lights in cabin were left on from takeoff to cruising, which made two infants cry that entire hour."
Cons: "Seats small"
Cons: "Why do we accept this humiliation from AA, they charge for breading inside the plane, they don't give anything nice to eat or drink, and the tickets are more expensive than others. You know why?, Because we are stupid"
Pros: "Nothing stands out"
Cons: "Plane also delayed"
Pros: "flight was on time!"
Cons: "The entertainment app didn’t worked"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."

Pros: "Wonderful selection of movies"
Pros: "Seat ok, crew was good and flight left right on time"
Cons: "Just the entertainment need to have options"
Pros: "The crew was nice, there was a lot of room on the plane because it was so delayed."

Pros: "it was fine."
Cons: "annoying to be forced to check our carry ons when there is clearly still room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "The air conditioner on the plane."
Pros: "Lunch was GREAT- usually fly Delta but this was comparable."
Cons: "WiFi, ESPECIALLY when you pay for a first class ticket, should be free. Further, the instructions for connecting to paid WiFi are NOT printed clearly anywhere. I had to go to the internet while on the ground. There are many movie and TV show options for free on your own device, however."
Cons: "Flight delayed because the crew arrived late the night before. This created a chain of events that got me to Newark 7 hrs later than scheduled."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Nothing I didnt like"
Pros: "The non stop flight Guatemala- Chicago"
Cons: "Just a cookie and drink for international flight(4 hrs +)"
Cons: "Changing terminals atleast 4 times"
Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "I have to say, I’m a medium sized 6 foot guy, but I felt very uncomfortable in the seat with another 6 foot man to my right. I felt like I couldn’t use rest my shoulder, since he was using the armrest. i know this is a calculated decision made by very high ups, but the seats just need more comfort. I was even in an exit row, which has more legroom in comparison, but the actual seat was almost painful."
Pros: "Airplane food was good"
Cons: "I was in the air 24hr, the trip was as good as it gets."
Pros: "Flight wasn’t full. We were able to relocate to exit row seating. I love preassigned seating."

Cons: "Would like more Western food."
Cons: "For some reason they changed my seat."
Pros: "The Crew was friendley."
Cons: "Could not checkin on internet."

Cons: "cramp leg space"
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Cons: "The flight leg PHL-LIS was the most unconfortable transatlantic trip I ever experienced. The plane was small, tight and no head support made this the worst transatlantic flight of my life, easily comparable to any low cost airline."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth."
Cons: "Our first flight had an hour and a half delay. Missed our connecting flight. Had to wait two hours for a later flight that was then delayed another hour and a half. Absolutely horrific and inconvenient."
Cons: "Only one plane really gave me a bad experience. The plane was pretty old and cramped and the crew was very rude. Maybe they were having a bad day or didn't want to be in the old plane either, but their performance was bad. One of the attendants, I think his name was Juju, asked me is a soft voice if I would like a drink. With the engines roaring in the background I thought he asked have you been served a drink? I responded "No, I have not." And he started off serving everyone else. I had to call him and asked if he was skipping me and he replied "I asked you if you wanted a drink and you said No!" I explained the engines were loud and I mistaken his words and with an attitude he served me a drink. For the whole 9hr flight I avoided him at all cost and just responded to the other attendants. The other attendants seemed annoyed and would roll their eyes or make a face when people would try to pass them on the aisle, but I in their defense, they were moving a large cart in a small aisle. Passengers should have waited until the aisle was clear before moving. That was my only issue. The next flight was better with no problems."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff, good entertainment offerings"
Cons: "AA got rid of the video screens on the back of seats."
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "Safely took off, flew, landed. They gave a biscoff instead of bland pretzels"
Cons: "Couldn't understand pilot."
Pros: "On time. Quick boarding."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "I was able to fall asleep and we didn't have to wait at the dock very long. Arrived on time and no delays."
Cons: "They flight attendant I had who took my drink order seemed distracted and basically threw my pretzels down on my tray table."
Pros: "Flights were boarded efficiently and on time. Crews were courteous and helpful."
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Pros: "Air Berlin has very nice jets"
Cons: "The connection time was much to short, 40 minutes connection. I was in the back end of a 777 with a lap child. My stroller that was gate checked came back with a missing wheel on just"

Cons: "On my San Francisco to Panama City flight my vegetarian meal was not there. It wasn't a big deal in the end because I slept through most of the flight. I do find it odd though that on all of the other legs of my trip I had my vegetarian meals."
Pros: "Losding procedure orderly, staff helpful."

Pros: "Boarding flight was orderly. For some reason there was a lot of passenger patience waiting in boarding lines."
Cons: "Checking in (self checkin to obtain baggage ticket) was terrible simply because United separated first class and economy areas. There were few if any signs directing passengers to the proper area. The areas were as far apart as they could be, straddling the security entrance. United was extremely busy at the time. Waiting in line for a kiosk only to be told it was first class only was inexcusable."
Pros: "nice plane. good service good job of getting our missing bags to us."
Cons: "delays on both ends. luggage did not arrive with us on either end"

Cons: "After buying alcohol in Guatemala, at the duty free shop, the workers at the shop taped the small boxed jars in bubble wrap - not, I discovered in an official duty free bag. So security stopped me in Houston, I went back to the United counter where they were going to charge me $15 to send it to Sacramento. I didn't spend the money. Dissapointing."
Cons: "4+ hour delay due to mechanical failures. My seat video monitor was broken. Missed connection rescheduled through a different airline. My luggage didn't make the change, and though I was told they would deliver it to my hotel late that night, it didn't arrive until mid-morning the next day."

Pros: "On time flight and no problems at all"
Cons: "The plane was having some air conditioner issues but the flight crew informed every one of the problem and what they were doing to fix it. They also came around with water very quickly for everyone to help cool them down. It was either push forward and wait for it to cool down once we got in the air or change planes, I was totally ok with how they handled it."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not entertainment"
Cons: "The staff was disrespectful when I asked for water the lady told me I had to stand up and get it myself. I try to use the liegjt above my seat to call for another staff and this lady yelled NO No No you have to stand up and get it yourself. Also flight delays, i went on 4 flights with UA this time and they were terrible"
