Cons: "The entertainment system on these planes need to be updated. It's really unacceptable today to have everyone forced to watch the same movie in the ceiling, forgot about pausing for toilet breaks. This one they showed one movie and then we were forced to endure snippets and NBC shows that I can't imagine anyone watching. What happened to the second movie? They supposedly had entertainment that you could watch on your phone or tablet, but it was only tv shows as well?!"
Pros: "The entertainment system was very nice. The seats were comfortable!! The crew friendly!!!"
Cons: "Food was lacking!!!"

Pros: "Got to my destination..."
Cons: "Seat was tiny. Felt crammed in there. I'm just 6ft tall, but couldn't even use the headrest...it was a back rest. No individual inflight entertainment on a 3 hour flight? I've had screens in front of me for hour long flights. Left 30 minutes late with no indication as to why. Just one of the most uncomfortable flights I've had in a long time."
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "The row I was in was spacious, I'm glad that I paid extra to move closer to front of plane and then paid extra to get an earlier boarding. I would recommend seat 13C for these types of flights. Legroom was good and I was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment program was a bit glitchy towards the end of my flight, but I slept inside. Maybe check all screens and such because it wasn't really registering when I would push the buttons."
Pros: "Everything was superb! I couldn't believe i was in coach. I travel every year overseas and usually use a different airline, this year i used British air/AA and i will ONLY fly with them again. Everyone was helpful. Plane was clean. Bathrooms stayed mostly clean. Food was pretty good. There was an open row and the attendant offered it to me and my 9 y/o daughter"
