Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Cons: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Pros: "On Time Departure / Early Arrival. Pleasant Crew"
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: "Most flights were delayed (3/4 legs) causing bags to not make connections. Had to wait 2 days for my bags in Paris requiring me to purchase new clothes, shoes, toiletries and then spent 4 hours waiting for them at our VRBO- finally delivered it at 4 hours 15 minutes. Also not given adjacent seats on"
Pros: "Fast birding and arriving early"
Cons: "Entertainment, there were no seat displays for 10 hours flight"
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Cons: "My bag was sent on an earlier flights and spend more than and hours looking for it once I landed ."
Pros: "JAL flight crew were the best"
Cons: "all were good"
Cons: "American changed our seats to back of plane. No explanation."
Pros: "Amazingly professional, informative crew despite having had been diverted at the last moment and dealing with multiple issues from laptop freezing, an uncooperative passenger and delayed take off. My hats off to this crew; we had a smooth landing and very pleasant experience on board."
Cons: "The terminal was under construction and extremely crowded. We could have used some help from the ground crew shepherding people, keeping hallways clear. Would probably be useful to not have gates immediately opposite each other both trying to board with space being so limited."
Cons: "Luggage lost never return"
Cons: "Delay wasn’t explained, crew/staff was mediocre"
Cons: "I upgraded my seats, but we still didn’t get any extras for the price."
Pros: "Everything was good. Bear in mind flight was under 1 hour and I slept the whole time."
Cons: "AA flight into Miami delayed due to late arrival of aircraft, followed by significant delay on the tarmac waiting for another plane to leave. This then delayed getting bags that required rechecking. At the AA booth, even though I was 42 minutes before the flight, they would not let me check my bags (not 45 minutes before) requiring me to stay in Miami overnight before booking me on a standby flight the next day. Customer service representatives were unhelpful and supervisor was rude. As someone who travels a lot, this was the worst service I have ever received from an airline (which says quite a bit). Will rethink ever booking a trip on American again."
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Cons: "Having to pay AGAIN for a seat choice. AND IBWAS MADE TO CHECK MY XARRY-ON BAG ALL THE WAY THRU TO ROME! WHY. WHY couldn't it only be checked to Philadelphia.?. That has taken place on other flights. Should not require checking a carry-on all the way thru on an international flight."
Cons: "Not the best. Marginal food and hassled about carry-on that fit the size requirements. More like premium economy."
Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."
Cons: "Seat isn’t very comfortable"
Pros: "Flight, Plane, and Customer Service was incredible. There was a woman at Phoenix Sky Harbor, Michelle, who saved my bacon in a crazy change of flights. THANK YOU MICHELLE!!!"
Cons: "American Airlines texted me at 6 AM saying that my 10 AM flight was cancelled and I had been rebooked for a flight that DEPARTED at 7:35 AM. I was and am livid. Thank goodness everyone at the airport did an incredible job and I made the flight, but what a terrible way to start the trip to Tahiti. I will be using American as a last and final option from now on. Changing flights last minute like that, especially when making an international connection, is hateful. Never again."
Cons: "Took off 40 min late without explanation"
Pros: "Smootm and in early."
Cons: "Not knowing no gratis drinks were served."
Cons: "There was no WiFi on this 3 hour flight"
Pros: "On flight crew was pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "The inflight wifi and entertainment was ok"
Cons: "Inconsistent gate staff. Happened twice to. Me in the recent trip where a multi flight journey the first leg my luggage was fine to get in board, the second flight it was tagged as too big. I've seen massive pieces of luggage go through no problem and then a random person is stopped to have their bags checked in."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very small aircraft that didn’t even have a working bathroom. All roll-ons had to be checked because overhead bins were too small to hold. Seats didn’t recline and rows were too close. Very uncomfortable aircraft."
Cons: "I'm not sure where the problem was - whether with AA or Royal Jordanian, but my luggage did not make it to Amman with me. In fact, there was a whole group of passengers traveling on American from different US cities, switching to RJ in Chicago, whose luggage did not come on the flight to Amman. My advice: be sure to pack enough for a couple of days in your carryon - and don't accept an offer to check your carryon to its final destination!"
Pros: "777 plane was awesome in first class."
Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."
Pros: "Just about nothing."
Cons: "Aged plane, aged bitter crew."
Pros: "What did you like? The crew was extremely polite and greeted us when we entered the cabin. Willing to assist us if we needed assistance. they got us seated straight away, and we were off, they brought the beverage cart out straight away, offered us a snack of pretzels and a drink. it was pretty quiet on the flight a lot of tired people who just came from an international flight and just wanting to get home. both flights were on time. I haven't one bad thing to say about American Airlines"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between."
Cons: "I think this was the most cramped airplane I have been on. It was so uncomfortable and I would think that they would take this into consideration since it was a red eye flight."
Pros: "Returning flight had much more entertainment options. I didn't sleep at all during the flight, which was perfectly fine by me because I didn't want to. The crew did a nice job. Complimentary wine was nice."
Cons: "Hated having to pay extra in order to sit next to my wife on the plane for our honeymoon. It was not clear from the beginning about needing to reserve any kind of seat before most were taken."
Cons: "they broke my luggage"
Pros: "Good food & movies."
Pros: "Eveything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Staff on the plane was pleasant."
Cons: "When I checked in I wasn't given a seat assignment. I had to wait until I got to the gate."
Pros: "Crew always helpful and polite."
Cons: "Only Vegetarian meals available for myself and many passengers. Later snacks also Vegetarian. Only chocolate ice cream. All I had to eat was the crumble in the main meal. No hot tea whilst waiting three and half hour for repairs to computer."
Pros: "Service was very efficient and responsive. I was lucky to have an empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "Hate, hate, hate not having individual monitors for entertainment....especially considering that it's an international flight."
Pros: "Great customer service from the ticketing agents, gate agents, flight attendants and pilots!"
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."
Cons: "The customer service and the lack of assistance from the airline ground staff was horrible ."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly an American / American code share flight abroad again. I cannot believe they are flying this plane for trans-continental flight in 2016."
Cons: "1980's 757. Literally, I flew on planes like this in the 80's. American, please get with it. This was a horrendous flight. No in flight entertainment at all in 2016 on a 9+ hr. flight is unacceptable. Couple that with 1.25 hour delay AFTER the plane boarded. You should not be flying narrow body jets on flights this long. Much less ones with old, uncomfortable seats and zero entertainment options. I don't mean to sound entitled but this experience was night and day in every capacity (comfort, food, service, entertainment) from my flight to Europe on BA. Sad. Lastly, I sat next to a off duty American flight attendant who was quite rude."
Cons: "My flight was severely delayed and my family was improperly informed"
Cons: "The plane took off much later than it was supposed to, so we were already behind. Once we got onto the runway, the plane turned around and went back for three people who had missed the flight. I suppose if I had barely missed the flight, I would want the plane to turn around. However, those three people held up a plane that was completely full and had standby passengers. Through the entire flight, there was an issue with the seating and there was a man standing up at the front because he had nowhere to sit. It was one of the most bizarre flights I've ever taken... and I fly about 15-20 times a year."
