"My flight was cancelled and I wasn’t even notified!!! Horrible service!"
Pros: "Yes made sure mask was in place"
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."

Cons: "First time we have flown First Class on American Airlines and service was outstanding and perfect! Thank you for an amazing experience!!"

Cons: "Nothing to improve. Very well run."

Cons: "You could have been on time. You could be accountable. You ruined my wife’s 40th birthday by failing to fulfill you’re end of the deal."
Cons: "I purchased 3 tickets and one was not used as the guest could not make the trip. The airline sold the seat that I already bought and paid full price for and I was not issued a refund or a credit for another flight. As fas as I see it, that seat was mine and shoould not have been fiilled by another indiviidual."

Pros: "comfortable seating, lots of movie choices. food and drink selections were nice.Galley snack choices were underwhelming"
Cons: "Staff was fair, but nothing compared to the service on JAL from CA to Tokyo. Very loud throughout the flight pushing the drink cart through the 8 Business Class rows instead of just delivering drinks to the 32 people in the section. Once the initial food & beverage service was complete, the service practically disappeared unless i sought them out in the galley."
Pros: "The seats seem to be shrinking. The flight was flawless."
Cons: "Tight seats, but I guess that is going to be the norm now."
Pros: "Flight was delayed by approximately 90 minutes. Attendant was friendly."

Cons: "Long wait for clearance"
Pros: "I liked the way the AA gate supervisor too charge of the problem and solved it, with great deal of personal imvolvement and follow up. Also check-in crew was very much the best. I would say that AA showed the best of passages care to me. Truly outstanding."
Cons: "Because of a mixup, though not of AA doing, I was literally forgotten at the gate. However, AA personnel showed the very best of can-do attitude and got me home for Thanksgiving. I am very proud of everyone working at AA at the TPA airport."
Pros: "The agent at the desk helped seat us together after our disastrous 1st flight. Crew was friendly & upbeat, great service."
Cons: "Old plane No entertainment No place to plug in/charge devices."
Pros: "Selection of movies, food, air hostess"
Cons: "There was no personal screen like most flights have now. We had to watch the movies on the general screen overhead; however, the sound for the headphones didn't work so we couldn't enjoy those movies. The flight was a non-stop 9hr flight, which made it seem very long without having entertainment."
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and gave great service!"
Pros: "LIKED NOTHING. 5.5 hour delay on a redeye?! What's to like?"
Cons: "EVERYTHING was poorly handled by AA for this delay. You're at LAX, no pilot? no 1st officer? Where's the planning? And we boarded the plane on time, deboarded the plane, they gave us warm drinks and pretzels and cookies to tide us over. 5.5 hours later? we take off. Nothing AA did was done right for the customer."

Pros: "Missed the flight. Money was not refunded."
Pros: "It was a very short flight so not too much to go wrong."
Cons: "I had a carry on and a laptop case that fit under the seat. The laptop case has wheels and a handle. The gate agent said I need to check one bag, even though I could show that the laptop case was within the specs for fitting under the seat. When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"
Cons: "Baggage took 1 hour after arrival1"
Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours then canceled."
Cons: "The wifi entertainment stopped working for me half way through the flight"
Pros: "Very good , fare price and nice flight"
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Pros: "We left 55 minutes late. Person at counter was annoying. Kept grabbing the microphone, think he liked hearing himself talk. Wanted to valet all the carryons but there was room in the airplane for them."
Cons: "being late and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "The boarding at GYE was very smooth and the GYE terminal is very comfortable."
Cons: "The check-in process at GYE needs to improve. Not many people in line and it still takes an hour get checked in. Plane crew waiting much longer to serve the food. That made sure I would get less rest on and overnight flight. Worst of all, after the crew served the food, the never came to pick it up. Just makes it uncomfortable to have a tray of trash on your tray table for 3 hours."
Pros: "Crew was excellent on both legs. Pleasant, accommodating. Good overhead storage space. Free tv was nice although I didn't watch it."
Cons: "Cramped! I'm 5'2" and could barely get my underseat bag in and out. Very late boarding and departure. Don't like the glass of soda and they don't hand you the can but that's just me. And, of course, we boarded very late."
Cons: "it was really bumpy"
Cons: "Weather delay"
