Airline reviews

Pros: "The boarding process was very smooth and we took off early and the crew was great and then we also arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing could be changed."

Cons: "Full flight"

Pros: "The fact that no one sat next to me believe me it was not a my choice there was just not a body to put in the seat"
Cons: "The staff was not friendly or say hello or goodbye"

Cons: "Both female flight attendants were very rude and pushy, the male was the only pleasant person. Also the in flight entertainment didn’t work half the time."

Pros: "The crew was amazing but I was on a United flight since American was late leaving Athens. AA booked me on a later flight from Chicago to San Francisco on United. They issued separate inside seats for my wife and I. United showed me their kindness by putting us together in economy Plus."
Cons: "I don't blame American for being late but putting me on a United flight and splitting up my wife and I seperate seats was a little under the bar."

Pros: "Good leg room. Seems to have improved."
Cons: "Additional food options would be good."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Zero entertainment - no screens, no wifi, no plug ins for phones/computers - poor!"

Pros: "On time. Fast boarding. Comfortable seating."

Cons: "Checking bags in PHF very poor. Disorganized and poorly managed. Staff needs more training and explicit direction. Kiosks should ALL be in working condition!"

Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Boarding took forever and made me almost miss my connecting flight."

Pros: "After we boarded there was a lot of confusion with the flight attendant. Apparently people ‘s bags got mislabeled. He didn’t know the those passengers final destination. Then he called out to see if a passenger was on board...shouldn’t he know? He had the list in his hand. Another baggage issue. Third, he asked if there were children under 10...was thoroughly confused when he only found one. It was a bit unsettling to the point where we were wondering where we were really going to end up. But our pilot, Hercules, got us there."
Cons: "Newport News airport was exceptional."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient the flight left on time in spite of rain. Lots of air traffic departing JFK and we were delayed in the take off queue for an hour. The captain made up time and arrived Paris almost as scheduled. Food was very good for coach class and it was a hot meal."
Cons: "The coach seats even on this 6.5 hour flight were uncomfortable. The seat backs have no support. The aircraft was an older 767 and did not have entertainment screens on the seat backs. Thus there were no games or other interactive programs. It had the overhead monitors for movies. Hopefully they will modify that plane soon."

Cons: "Lines are very long and the check-in staff are not good at their jobs. For example, I arrived 2 hours early and they ended up letting half the line cut in front, which made me barely make my flight."

Pros: "Boarding at Springfield was fast and simple. The check-in agent were friendly and efficient. I especially appreciated that the flight arrived early into Dallas. I had a little more time to find lunch before my next flight."
Cons: "N/A"

Cons: "The connecting flight from Barcelona was delayed and there was inadequate time to connect. Horrible travel via AA to and from Barcelona. You guys should be embarrassed to tears ... and that is be overly gracious to AA."

Cons: "Cancelled flight"

Pros: "We really appreciated the comfort of the seats and the staff are great. Although fully booked, we were still comfortable."
Cons: "My husband and I were assigned seats away from each other and the boarding took a long time."

Pros: "New plane. Excellent service. Absolutely a delightful experience."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Sat on runway for 30 minutes before the announcement was made that the First Officer had called out. Deplaned. Then once we reboarded an 1.5 hours later, we sat on the runway for over 2 hours waiting to be deiced, then waiting to take off with absolutely NO TRANSPARENCY from the crew or the pilot. We were updated ONCE every HOUR. I missed a day of my vacation because a crew member didn't arrive on time. UNACCEPTABLE."

Pros: "The fight was not over crowded."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "It got delayed and delayed, cancelled and re-routed and delayed two more time. I have yet to make it to Knoxville."

Pros: "Nothing. Had a family emergency"
Cons: "I had a family emergency and had to buy a ticket to Pittsburgh to get home instead of going to Portland."

Pros: "USB Outlets are nice to have"
Cons: "Nothing was bad on this flight"

Pros: "Got to DC fast once we finally boarded."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times."

Pros: "smooth flight, great crew, decent food with beverages, good entertainment selection with nice screens to watch movies"
Cons: "just a tiny bit cramped"

Cons: "Meh"

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. We were delayed at the gate one hour and the captain allowed us to deboard which was nice."
Cons: "The food was not great- a very plain pasta for dinner and a muffin top and yogurt for breakfast. I thinking was an older plane because there were no individual screens and no place to plug in devices. They played Pirates of the Caribbean on small overhead monitors."

Cons: "I wish they have two sheets. I don't like to sit next to stranger. And hard to go to bathroom"

Pros: "Entertainment system Leg room"
Cons: "Just one package of snacks for a 6 hour flight Delays going out of NYC"

Pros: "It was an ok airplane, entertainment system worked"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.15 hours and didn't even offered water or anything, after a while they said if we wanted we could go out of the plane... really bad!"

Cons: "Plane needs updating. Pretty outdated and dirty"

Pros: "Good variety of entertainment options. Wifi reliable"
Cons: "Food options were horrible. Need to offer non seafood/pork option."

Pros: "I liked the boarding, entertainment, and food."
Cons: "I did not like the cramped legroom. The airline got greedy and crammed too many rows of seats in the plane, cramping the legroom for all the economy passengers. Legroom in economy was MUCH better on the Japan Airlines plane (also a 777) that I was on from Los Angeles to Japan. Legroom is always important, but especially so on long trans oceanic flights. I am inclined to avoid American Airlines in the future because of that.qa"

Cons: "Everything was great."

Pros: "very friendly staff"

Pros: "I suppose the food / wine was okay."
Cons: "The plane was one of the oldest I have been on in years. The center aisle overhead bins were not even big enough for luggage and there was one TV every 5 or so rows. We were at the mercy of the crappy movies American Airlines chose for us. Most flights these days have individual entertainment and at a minimum room for luggage. The plane was old, dirty and not up to date. Never flying American again. Extremely disappointed with the service on the flight, as well. A little more than halfway through the flight, the woman in the row next to me began reading the airline magazine. Her window shade was up and the sunlight caused a horrible glare on the magazine pages that beamed like a laser over everyone near by. My friend seated next to me and I both have extreme sensitivity to light that causes migraines. I asked the woman to close her shade which at first she did about an inch or two. This didn't do anything to help the glare so I asked again and she refused to do anything more. I explained it was giving us migraines and she didn't seem to care. I asked the flight attendant to help navigate the situation, which was just as useless. She said she could ask but not force her to close her window shade. While I understand that AA can't control that some people can be selfish, I find it incredibly hard to believe that the crew can't intervene when a passengers actions are making other people physically ill. Our only other option was to be relegated to the last row, next to the crews stinking pile of garbage that had been accumulating for the first five hours of the trip. Almost every crew member we interacted with was completely apathetic to the situation. We spent the rest of flight nauseous and with splitting headaches. But I sure hope my row mate and fellow human being in 32A enjoyed the article about the dinosaur flea market in Bolivia This entire situation could have been mediated by the flight attendants who chose to disengage. Furthermore, when we were deceding to land, overhead bins were still open, and people were starting to stand up to gather their belongings in the overhead bins. Again, the apathetic flight attendants were no where to be found. Overall, disappointing experience. Glad to never have to fly them again."

Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."

Pros: "We got to our airline with plenty of time around 7pm . We got delayed 3 hours. We have no annoucement. Service costumer representative was rude and did not want to give updates on our flight. Horrible experience."
Cons: "A free plane ticket."

Cons: "Delays"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "I'm in the military so thank you for allowing active duty to board with 1st class passengers. Also having the free movies available to watch is great too!"
Cons: "No bad comments to put here. The only thing I would recommend would be to add a free Internet option"

Pros: "No vouchers were given out to customers"
Cons: "Delayed flights"

Pros: "Very kind crew and staff."
Cons: "Newport news has no comfortable seating in the airport...no where to nap until the flight."

Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"

Cons: "No personal screens on each seat-,makes international flight very long."

Cons: "When I booked my flight, I used Kayac like I always have in the past. To begin with, I selected several flights that were listed, only to have it tell me that this flight is no longer offered, which I assume is engineered to get me to select a more expensive flight. Once I finally found a flight that was still available, I selected it and began the process of providing information and selecting seat assignments. On 2 of the 4 legs of the round trip, there were no more seats available except for upgrade seats, which resulted in an extra $100.00+ in charges. Then when I finished the transaction, I noticed an extra $200.00 charge added. End result was that I ended up paying over double what I would normally pay for this same round trip that I have made many many times. I feel, no I know, that some customer relations person will look at this comment and reply with a pre-generated response apologizing and hoping I have a better experience in the future and thank me for using Kayac. Big companies like yours look at one customer as no big deal. I'm a Physician and have the ability to reach out to multitudes. I'm going to make it my mission in life to reach out to as many people as I can through word of mouth, signs in my office, Internet and social media to let them know about the deplorable practices of your company."

Pros: "The entire process from check in to boarding to the actual flight was wonderful"

Pros: "On time. Good crew and nicer flight."
Cons: "Actually no complaints."

Pros: "does not have compensation during my stay, sad"
