Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"
Pros: "My plane was downgraded to a smaller and the weight restricted. I was unable to get on my flight at the designated time so now currently sitting in another plane 2 hours later and still haven’t left for my destination GRK. This is the worst I’ve been treated since flying with American Airlines."
Cons: "If I was able to get on my original flight without downgrading and weight restriction issues. I am highly inconvenienced by American Airlines"
Cons: "No deberían cojerse los artículos personales de los pasajeros"
Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Delays on the tarmac made our flight arrive late"
Cons: "Organization on when the flight would be leaving. BETTER food vouchers. And prudence goes a long way"
Pros: "Delayed 4 hours. Strung along the entire time. Awful experience. Inability to get hotel."
Cons: "Multiple lengthy delays, gate agents in Charlotte not committed to explaining the problem and solutions"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are absolutely horrible. I feel crammed like a sardine in the plane. Seriously, can we adjust the seat widths and distance to the seat in front and make them a couple inches bigger?"
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"
Cons: "The attitude from the crw"
Cons: "Over 45 mins for bags to get on the belt ? Ridiculous. Won’t fly with AA again"
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined so far that the guy in that seat had his head less than a foot from my face and my knees were being smashed by his seat. Very painful."
Cons: "It was cancelled. Rebooked via support the whole route on to the next day. Airport AA staff is very unprofessional, they tried to put solving all problems onto customer the customer shoulders. Lost ~$500 due to the cancellation and nobody cares to compensate it. Completely disappointed about customer care."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the airport in Philadelphia "wasn't aware" that we were coming to it took forever to get off the plane. I would have missed my next flight if they didn't wait for us. Also I couldn't check in online beforehand, which was frustrating. Also I waited in line at the British Airways desk to check in and it was a long line. When I finally got to the front I was told I had to check in at the American Airlines desk and I wish I had been told that earlier. One staff member was rude when I asked him to repeat the food options."
Pros: "Entertainment offered several options to choose from"
Cons: "Food, only one beverage was offered"
Cons: "the payment didn't work but I got no notification. When I got to the airport I couldn't check in. It took a lot of time with more fee to figured it out. A terrible experience"
Pros: "I found the crew to be nice and friendly and the breakfast was good."
Cons: "It seems like American Airlines has lived up to its reputation. More seats in a plane and less comfort. On top of that, the entertainment system has not been upgraded since the 70's. TV monitors in the middle and everyone has to watch the same thing. Of course, the sound system did not work for one entire side of the plane so I could only watch the movie and not hear it. If you are not going to have individual monitors for each seat, allow your passengers to what from their mobil devises like almost all other airlines are doing."
Pros: "Great crew. So friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Food was terrible and the audio was broken for the entire plane and couldn't watch the movie they played on the flight."
Cons: "There was only a shared screen. And the AA Entertainment app didn't work"
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks. Flight was late"
Pros: "Food, cleanliness"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The luggage transfer from customs to the Miami LAX flt. was not clearly explained . I had to wait in line to recheck the luggage to LAX, the wait cut the time to lax flt departure forcing me to sprint over to gate 48 all the way across the airport.(about 1 mile.)"
Pros: "Thanks everything was on time. Very nice cre"
Pros: "everything was smooth"
Cons: "Nothing bad about the trip"
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "I was in Business class and had some room to spread out."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by almost three hours. Crew provided NO service, but it was a late flight."
Pros: "I am happy to have made it to my final destination."
Cons: "This was a disappointing experience to say the very least. The boarding process in Quito was chaotic to say the least. The AA staff did not make an effort to maintain any kind of order. My husband and I are both enrolled in the AA frequent flyer program and had at least 6 people cut in front of us while on-line. When we finally approached the AA representative, Dayana Gómez, She was rude and not helpful. Our seats on the UIO-Dallas flight did not even recline. We sat completely upright for the duration of the 6 hour overnight night flight into Dallas."
Cons: "American refused to board me becouse LAN did not send the reservation to AA system. Flight was full and AA did not even talk with me about what to do. They just unloaded my bag allready checked to MIA.. After two hours standing at LAN counter they changed my flight to Lima and than to Miami. I came to Miami 12 hours late, very disappointed by this service. According to AA my ticket was never confirmed by the airline !! How can you sell it to customer ??"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant and arrival earlier than expected"
Cons: "There was nothing not to like. We took off on time, had no turbulence, friendly service and landed early."
Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendants going down the middle aisle and bumping me as I had an aisle seat."
Pros: "Friendly crew made a long international flight with a 14 month old as pleasant as possible."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "nice flight - nonstop got us exactly where we want"
Cons: "not a big selection on food... just cookies (although good it would be nice to have some selection)"
Cons: "My bag was lost and was not woken up for meal or provided a meal when I asked."
Pros: "Customer service good. Offered food/service quickly."
Cons: "Film selection was subpar, and had no subtitles available. Flight safety information video so unbelievably boring. Flight crew repeated all instructions at least 3 times including video interruptions. What is the point of having in flight entertainment if crew will interrupt said entertainment at least once every 10 min to remind you you are still in turbulent air? Do they honestly think the passengers forgot? We are in the plane too! I understand they have to be careful due to liability but this airline is ridiculous. Believe it or not customers do not like being treated like children. Would not recommend to others or fly this airline again. Also, the lunch was awful even by airline standards. Btw the airline was avianca not AA. kayak must have messed up or they are owned by AA. AA is great and I recommend them wholeheartedly but Avianca is awful. Stay away if you can afford to do so."
Pros: "The guy at the check in counter was awesome, even though his English wasn't great. He upgraded me to the exit row seats since my legs are long; usually you need to pay for this. The seats were huge and comfortable, though the arm rests didn't move, so you could stretch out (the flight wasn't that full)."
Cons: "One flight attendant was basically rude to everyone. She was so comically unfriendly that people on the plane were actually mocking her (for good reason). She refused to explain to us how the emergent slide worked. We asked because the visual instructions on the door were different from those in the seat back pamphlet. In fact, I still don't know which directions are the correct ones (they were contradictory)."
Pros: "They flew us back to Charlotte in good time."
Cons: "Prior to take off as the plane backed away from the ramp, we heard a noise for several minutes from under the plane. It sounded like something with the wheels. Kinda unnerving. Just prior to taxiing the plane stopped, the pilot announced a technical difficulty. They had to reboot one system to correct it. We heard more wheel noise. Almost like the doors over the wheels were stuck. Again kinda unnerving. Once airborne everything was smooth."
Pros: "The flight was fast and good service"
Cons: "En El Salvador the person who check my luggage was rude And throw my medicines to the garbage and she told That I need a proscription from my Dr , never it happen before , I think she work for El Salvador airport but she was rude"
Pros: "The professionalism of the pilots in handling the extremely rough weather during the flight"
Cons: "The meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable . They are co - shared with Qantas and could learn a lot about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No food, no good entertainment"
Cons: "Food was bad even for airline standards. Seats uncomfortable. There were 2 female crew members who seemed like they didn't want to be there or cared. Movie selection was limited with not many new releases. One of the worst international flights I've been on for a long time."
Pros: "Todo muy bueno"
Pros: "the different sections of the plane made it feel smaller. Great food in flight along with the entertainment."
Cons: "it was a long flight, not enough movies to watch throughout the flight. Only dc outlets available which i wasn't prepared for"
Pros: "It was easy checking in and getting boarding pass online. OMG"
Cons: "OMG. Horrible experience. The 8:20 am flight didn't leave 'til noon. There were several changes. We were moved to different gates FIVE TIMES!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding was smooth and on time."
Cons: "By no fault of the crew, the flight was delayed by an hour and a half due to conditions at LAX. I wish there was a charger or usb port to charge my phone. After the long delay on the Tarmac and many calls updating my family about the delay, I had drained most of the battery from my phone and had barely enough upon arrival."
