Pros: "Everything goog"
Pros: "The crew had an amazing personality. They definitely enhanced my experience"

Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Good crew, on time flight and departure."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "All was great"
Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"
Pros: "The crew was one of the best I have ever experienced. They even had the flight deck wish a happy birthday to my 89 year old mother in law."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"
Pros: "Crew was fine - not their fault that DELTA changed my flight at the last minutes with terrible options on rescheduling my flight!"
Cons: "Yes...not change my flight at the last minute and causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then making me reschedule my flight with only options that I now have (2) layover and then arrive in Korea another day later, that then caused me to miss my college orientation day!"

Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"
Pros: "Food quality was above average (compared to Air France, for instance). On-board entertainment system offers a lot of movies or tv series, assuming it is in working order."
Cons: "A negative point for the entertainment system is the variety of movies - all US based movies. Other airlines mix in foreign movies, Delta is squarely US centric. Also, the entertainment system didn't properly work until rebooted, but flight attendants could not be contacted to get this done timely (cannot call attendants through a non-functional screen). Another concern is the noise level of the cabin, but it's mostly due to passengers."
Cons: "The heat on the plane was turned up so high! We were roasting on there! I mentioned it to the flight attendant and he didn't seem to do anything. Everyone was sweating to death."

Pros: "They held the plane for me. Due to customs and TSA, I had to run across the airport, and then a bus to the correct terminal to catch the plane. I arrived at the gate a couple of minutes after it was closed. THANKFULLY the gate agent came back (he was on the plane) and issued my seat ticket (it had been upgraded) and led me to the plane. So, didn't miss my flight, AND had a seat upgrade."

Pros: "Crew was kind but really bad quality price, bad food, no entertainment, lot of delays..."
Cons: "All"
Pros: "we left two hours late due to some security mess up. all had to exit, redo security, e.t.c. crew was nice, but info was poor, service to travelers was poor. with 2 hour delay they could have given snacks, drinks. instead the crew mostly disappeared"

With no meat or chicken at all , apparently they don’t know what the meaning of a muslim meal is ! It means to have halal meat , we are not vegetarians ! 3- my baggage didn’t arrive to the airport and I filed a report and was told that I will have them tomorrow and now after four days the baggage didn’t arrive yet and I was told that one of them is missing !!!!!!! I can’t hate them enough."

Cons: "The business class seats which are a lot more costly than economy seats are no different than economy seats. Same seat and on a 5 hour flight they are awful. The only difference from economy is that the middle seat is left empty....a help toward comfort, but far short especially when the price difference is factored in."

Pros: "Staff"
Pros: "Surprisingly tasty breakfast."
Cons: "Online check in didn't work. The site kept telling me I needed a visa although I chose the option that stated I had an ESTA. Also mt destination country was not in the list of countries and there was no way to fill it in. The check- in agent in Cairo was cheeky and unhelpful. I was told I couldn't get the aisle seat assignment that I had selected online when attempting to do the online check in. The crew also stated I couldn't switch to an aisle seat because " we are completely booked" although all 3 rows in front of me had empty aisle seats all the way from Cairo to Frankfurt so I was stuck in a middle seat which the person in front completely reclining their seat for 4 hrs. At 5'10" it was not only uncomfortable but a painful flight. Things improved somewhat from Frankfurt to Miami but was still pretty tight due to the reclining seats. Luckily I got an aisle seat on that leg and the middle seat next to me was open. There was no entertainment on the Cairo to Frankfurt leg."

Cons: "Seating is cramped up. Entertainment options are mediocre."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Every thing is excellent"
Cons: "With Covid they could hand out a bag containing water and a snack."
Cons: "AA needs to standardize their WiFi. Sometimes it is boingo, GoGo, or Panasonic or something other. Each has a different way of logging in. It is way too complicated. Sometimes you can watch on the iPad in a browser, other times you need a flash player or the AA app. Have a common way of at least accessing the internet, otherwise it can take 10 minutes to log in if switching from a GoGo yo Panasonic service. It is just too difficult and buggy. I am glad I don’t actually pay for the internet."
Cons: "The entertainment app didn’t worked"
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Cons: "We asked if the Cajun chicken (which by the way isn’t anything like Cajun chicken) contained any nuts as one of us in the party is severely allergic, only to wait more than 15 minutes and were told they don’t have an allergen sheet so they don’t know! Pls take food allergies seriously!"
Pros: "Nothing. Door closed in my face departure board never showed it was boarding and I ran from my other delayed flight to try and catch the Wilmington flight"
Cons: "American needs to step up their device and the airlines should be punished for their lack of service If an airline vises a non weather delay there should be immediate compensation for passengers. No different than what retailers do to their suppliers when supplier is late delivering merchandis"
Cons: "Flight attendants were NOT personal at all. Did not say hello or even greet passengers. Totally acted like they did not want to be there. Made me feel like we were nothing but a bother to even.be there. Hate all the interruptions advertising the credit card. Very annoying!"

Pros: "Clean"
Cons: "Has to be the most narrows seats with the smallest amount of legroom of all carriers. Great price on the flight (comparatively speaking) but I will opt to pay more for a diffferent airline with better seats. Comparing economy to economy seating"
Pros: "Delayed for 2 and a half hours"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "An S80? Really? This plane was older than me! Horrible plane! The crew looked like they had been up since 4 am. Looked exhausted and unfriendly. I do want to clarify that this was an American Airlines operated plane, not etihad."
Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"
Pros: "The newer plane is the only nice thing."
Cons: "This service is terrible. We had to run and practically knock people over to get to this flight. After being stuck in Dallas at the beginning of our trip. There is nothing organized about this company. And no concern for their customers. We heard different things from every single employee we talked to."
Pros: "Good entertainment options in newer flights."
Cons: "Food options for first class could be better."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "Seat was slightly more comfortable than DELTA."
Cons: "Families with infants/young children not allowed to board early. Flight was delayed by almost 3 hours and gate moved FOUR times while waiting for the delayed flight... That's a LOT of moving when you're hauling a cranky 1 year old around the airport long after we were supposed to already be at our destination. Desk attendants were abrupt, not friendly, and diamissive when I came up to ask for a stroller tag."
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"

Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Pros: "Headrest entertainment systems"
Cons: "Lack of comfort in the seat, pay for every little thing, departed late, 90% of all passengers seems to be lumped in "Group 6" making boarding extremely annoying. I suppose any other group costs extra."
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "The crew was professional and polite."
Pros: "The flights were smooth and easy."
Cons: "Due to the crew being late, my second flight was delayed and hour and a half."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Got me home safely"
Cons: "Boarded us late. Got us to the runway, realized they didn't have the paperwork they needed and returned to gate. Swapped out a crew member whilst they were there. Lost place in the queue and so we ended up about an hour and a half late. Lots of excuses but don't recall hearing an "I'm sorry for the delay"."
Cons: "Small narrow seats"
Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "This airline was extremely disrespectful and treated us like animals after cancelling our flight ..."
