Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Roomy, comfy seats. Thanks for the snack and bottle water provided during covid"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "We were delayed 3 hours for mechanical repairs."
Cons: "If you fly first class your seat should recline. Ridiculous and the reason I go out of my way to make sure I NEVER fly American. Couldn’t avoid it this time and as always American managed to disappoint."
Pros: "The seat although with limited leg room, was comfortable."
Cons: "The desk agent at the airport was awful and made my experience unpleasant. And already stressful travel was made much worse."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The crew, comfort, flight itself"
Pros: "Crew was excellent and the flight was ahead of schedule."
Pros: "More entertainment options, plugs for charging electronics, and better food"
Cons: "Pretty much everything could have been better, including the plane"
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Pros: "Service was American average. Not necessarily a good thing, but it could have been worse."
Cons: "Seats with more leg room required for people over 6' tall."
Cons: "Not canceling our reservations and making our flight back home extremely difficult and hair-raising"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick and easy. There was plenty of room for everyone's cary on luggage. The movie selection was vast and encompassing."
Cons: "The seat was really uncomfortable even if reclined all the way. If the person in front of you is reclined, then you basically have to recline yourself to see the screen. Very little leg room."
Pros: "The airlines don't allow enough room to sit comfortably. I am 6' 2" 250 lbs. My knees touch the back of the seat in front of me and there is no room side to side. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."

Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "Paid extra for window seat in exit row-- but there was no window so the experience was like being in a dark space capsule. Very disappointing. At least there was unlimited legroom. Waited for 30 minutes to get luggage at LAX so giving it a low "boarding" rating"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was lovely."
Cons: "Waiting for maintenance, leaving late, running through the airport. No help from airport staff. They really seemed like that they didn’t care a bit if people made there flights. We barely made our connection to London. People who are 59 should NOT have to run through a huge airport! We spent a lot of money and planned this trip for nearly a year. There were no updates from Kayak. I will use Expedia from now on."
Pros: "There’s no usb charger for my phone.there is no Monitor in front of me"
Cons: "super delayed, then delayed more on tarmac due to OVERVfueling."
Pros: "Cabin crew were good. Their service was good. And quality of flight and food was good"

Pros: "Planes were punctual and smooth flight"
Pros: "Easy and efficient boarding for a busy flight. Efficient, attentive and intuitive cabin crew. Good in-flight entertainment and facilities."

Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "AC was not working. Bathrooms were inoperative for the second time. They also didn't work when flew out of EWN to start our trip. American Eagle aircraft must have some major maintenance issues!"
Pros: "I have nothing good to say about the flight to LA or the flight back to Chicago from LA."
Cons: "3 of the 4 flights were late, and the 4th was canceled. The canceled flight was due to weather, but AA's response was to connect those of us stranded with a 3rd party vendor - Travelliance - with the promise of a SUBSTANTIAL discount for a hotel (SINCE THE NEXT FLIGHT I WAS GIVEN WAS 17 HOURS LATER!) - and there was, effectively, NO DISCOUNT. I have spent thousands and thousands of dollars with you over the years, but this was a bucker of water in the face. I'm sure I'll fly with you again, but any sort of good will I held for AA is gone."
Pros: "Everyone was so helpful. The flight was very quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "The plane was very outdated and the food was poor. Flight attendants were very rude."
Cons: "The video screens weren't very good. You had to tap screen multiple times to select a choice."
Pros: "Very professional. Overall great. WiFi was free. Very fast. Left 3 minutes early and arrived 17 minutes early."
Cons: "Made me reprint my boarding pass. Bad food. No outlets. No in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me ＄50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Cons: "Held hostage on plane through storm. Teased for 6 hours then cancelled at midnight."
Cons: "That i booked a flight that departed 6:20pm on Alaska Airlines and found out i was put on a red eye American Airlines flight that left at 11:50 pm. In addition did not reciveve any notification of the change. Had to leave the airport because i thought i was leaving at 6:20 pm :("
Pros: "Although we were in "Economy" class, it felt just like Business. Lots of space to stretch your legs, personal TV monitor on the back of each head rest (Including HBO!), and even though it was a short 1.5 hour flight we were served drinks and a meal."
Cons: "The meal was average to sub-par, but than again it was a short flight and a warm meal was actually a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Do not bring blankets!! And the staff not nice"
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."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly. Very comfortable smooth ride."
Cons: "We were delayed for 4 hours, due to a mechanical issue. We were not given any forms of reimbursement. I would like a 500.00 voucher."
Pros: "Having free entertainment again is very nice!!"
Cons: "Delayed once again, at least it was only about 30 minutes and I didn't have a connecting flight to worry about. Leg room was absolutely horrendous!!! Newer model plane and zero room for my legs."
