Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "People seated in front of me disregarded wearing their mask during the flight."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely precious."
Cons: "Delayed because a passenger was let on that shouldn’t have been. The plane was kind of beat up and gross. The gate changed after boarding started. This is the second flight in two weeks that had the wrong gate posted."
Cons: "The aadvantage app kept crashing so we couldnt watch movies during our overall 8+ hrs travel, on both legs"
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "Great polite crew attentive to every need"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and caring."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The pilot explained that the plane had been sitting in the sun all day and during the flight check, they realized that the interior of the plane had gotten over 100 degrees by not being operated for hours before the flight. Seems like poor planning or preparation."
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Cons: "The entire entertainment system was down the entire 6 hour flight. Crew attempted to reboot the system several times with no luck."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean...had just been renovated"
Cons: "I can’t believe therebwere no flights from MIA to RDU from 11:30 to 4:30 :(. (Original flight was a 3.5 hour layover and that was bad emough)...and then it was changed to this flight:("
Pros: "Overall a very good flight"
Pros: "Great seats w no annoying entertainment console."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Free lugagge for veterans. We have made our sacrifice."
Pros: "Safe and on time."
Cons: "Crew did the minimum, showing no appreciation to passengers or asking if they could do anything more. Virtually no communication from pilot about route of flight or progress during flight. American’s international service lacks any flavor of being international."
Pros: "The flight attendants were able to find a place for my carry-on luggage when the overhead bins were filling up. I got a seat with extra leg room by chance (without having to pay the extra fees)."
Cons: "There are no snacks served on the flight. The Philadelphia Airport was overcrowded. There was hardly any room to navigate and there was a long line at nearly every women's bathroom."
Pros: "great staff making you feel like home. flight on time,definitely recommend to all."
Cons: "Need better coffee"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."
Pros: "Didn’t expect a hot dinner or a breffy, so that was nice!"
Cons: "Felt crowded for such a long flight, but the flight crew was great."
Pros: "Me gusto todo"
Pros: "My flights were booked through British Airways, but these segments were operated by American. Dallas to LAX was on an Airbus 321. Entertainment options were very good (although not as diverse as on British Airways). Food was okay. The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Small Airbus models (319 and 321) have noisy engines and noisy hydraulics, and they create an annoying amount of white noise in the passenger cabin."
Cons: "The airline charged me $50 for my carry on even though they told me I could hate check it earlier. Apparently they changed their mind and I am $50 poorer. This is after being a loyal American card member for over 10 years. BS."
Cons: "When I️ went to the gate to Ben seated they said there was overbooking, but 10 min before departure they allowed me to fly"
Cons: "Rude crew"
Pros: "We had our passes available on our iPhone to assist the boarding process. Very enjoyable trip with the crew and we plan to fly AA again in the future."
Cons: "Food was 100% inedible, I didn’t even bother with the breakfast because the main meal was really really disgusting No in seat entertainment The electrical outlet was not turned in for that section of aircraft"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "We were delayed almost two hours for weather and then when I finally boarded, myself and a few other people were pulled aside to be asked new security questions and have new boarding passes printed. The people at the desk let us know that it was because we checked in online. I don't mind being asked questions but they could have done that part of the process in the two hours that we were waiting to board so as not to further delay the boarding process."
Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"
Pros: "Arrived 30 minutes early"
Cons: "We had to wait 40 minutes in the runway before parking at the gate."
Pros: "The flight departed ontime and arrived 30 minutes early. The flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Nothing, it was all good."
Pros: "Old plane had bigger seats"
Cons: "Flight attendants were ok, plane was super old and made weird noises"
Cons: "You lost our bag and our original flight was shrunk. Our seats booted without warning. Late to our conference in Arizona."
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely too hot"
Cons: "Easy direct flight. No issues."
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Pros: "The crew for the most part were friendly. Boarding was easy enough"
Cons: "The one thing that stood out was that the flight attendants weren't offering water outside of the regular beverage service. I've never been on an international flight where there wasn't almost a constant flow of water. I was so parched after 8 hours. It seemed unusual. Also the seats are so small. I'm only 130 and 5'7" and it was a tough ride"
Pros: "Staff on the plane were nice."
Cons: "5 hour delay, fear of cancellation ruining a trip planned for years, not feeling we were told what was happening, series of delays extending decision time, unappetizing sandwiches during delay."
Pros: "GSP easy to navigate- easy option for WNC travelers"
Cons: "Due to a flight being cancelled earlier in the day, flights for the rest of the day were over booked. Instead of getting bumped from flight to flight due to the earlier cancellation, I and 6 other passengers decided to drive."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "The crew really seemed like they didn't like their job, and didn't want to be there. I felt kind of bad for them, nobody should be stuck in a job they hate."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The plane was older than me. There was no personal in flight entertainment on a daytime, 8hr 49min long-haul flight. Further the old "TV" six rows ahead of me was playing something I could barely see but the Audio system was broken for the whole plane so it was torture that the TV was even on. American Airlines needs to send modern equipment. This plane was unaccepatable by today's standards."
Pros: "I must say the in-flight crew, 2 gents and 1 lady for the first class were so friendly and ..... Happy!!!!"
Cons: "It's cold in Ohio"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and efficient. Schedules met my needs."
Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"
Cons: "Despite paying 5 months in advance, couldn't check in online or reserve seats without paying extra. AA customer service told me there were no more "complimentary " seats!! Very tight legroom in cabin."
Cons: "Delay boarding and then dropped us off at a remote runway and had to wait 45 minutes for a bus to main terminal!"
Pros: "Right in time and crew very responsable."
Cons: "The audio for film's didn't function in many places of the plain."
Cons: "Seeing as this flight was cancelled and we had to wait as two elderly people until 3pm the next day to get another flight and American Airlines would not compensate in anyway. I would say that we will never fly American Airlines again nor will my family. This was not the only delay or cancellation because of American either. We spent 48 hours traveling because of delays and cancellations and still American would do nothing for us. I'm 66 and my husband is 72 (who also has had back surgery for five slipped discs) and we had to sleep on concrete floors and had very limited money to buy food. It was by far the worst experience of my life and I would encourage everyone to not travel with them."
Pros: "Available drinks"
Cons: "Poor selection and no coffee"
