Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nothing to write home about."
Cons: "Squished seats, mediocre food. Competitor deliver more for the same price or less."
Pros: "Attentive and very polite flight attendant"
Cons: "Restroom seems to get smaller and smaller"
Cons: "Economy basic on American is terrible."
Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."
Pros: "Flight got in early. Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Bags could have been brought onto the plane instead of being checked in. There was space in the overhead bins. The space wasn’t utilized efficiently. It would be nice if there were a few choices for the snacks."
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Cons: "The plane was very old. It had cigarette ash tray in the armrests and bathrooms. It also only had three screens to watch movies. The headphone jack did not work properly and you could not hear the movie well. There were no screens in the chairs in front."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late. I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."
Pros: "Kept us waiting at gate for 5 hours, the boarded us, then canceled flight and asked us to deplane. Only gave one meal voucher for two days."
Cons: "After 2 hours of delay, cancel the flight and allow people to get sleep and give vouchers for 3 square meals as appropriate."
Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."
Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."
Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"
Pros: "many movies"
Pros: "Purser Rockland Albrecht and his crew went out of their way to make our over night flight BA as comfortable as possible. Found us better seats and checked in to see that all was well on a busy flight. Service has certainly improved!"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"
Cons: "Rude and disrespectful"
Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."
Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."
Pros: "short flight, crew was nice"
Cons: "left 40 min late due to a communication error deciding what crew would work the plane. didn’t find out why the flight was delayed until airborne."
Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."
Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Pros: "The fact we arrived safely"
Cons: "Long time to claim baggage, three hours delay, uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "I liked arriving safely, although we were an hour and a half late"
Cons: "American switched pilots last minute, so all passengers sat waiting in our cramped seats for about 15 minutes while pilots got situated in the cockpit. Then it was discovered a preflight mechanical check hadn't been done. So we all sat for another HOUR waiting for the mechanics to arrive and do their work. The flight attendants were unpleasant and rude."
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Pros: "Service was one of the best I have received for an airline."
Cons: "Although I should now be at my final destination, I still have 11 hrs of travel to go. My flights were changed three times. The first cancelation caused me to buy new tickets at a higher price I had originally purchased them at. We were redirected from Kayak to Vayamo and they have no sense of customer service. Horrible"
Cons: "Rude crew, no bathroom useage for entire flight and staff would not help handicap with luggage."
Pros: "Boarding lasted over an hour"
Cons: "I regret flying with American. They have consistent problems with every flight from seating to delayed flights"
Cons: "Terrible airline. Will not fly them again."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. By the time groups 5&6 boarded the first groups had not finished and there were no longer any lines to control the crowd, just people trying to get on board to assure overhead cabin space."
Pros: "The spaciousness of the seating on AA is tops bar none"
Cons: "The cookies and it was cold. Jesse"
Pros: "I think they were holding the plane for a connection flight arrival."
Pros: "Boarding was simple"
Cons: "For my whole three hour flight a child kicked my chair, i asked the mother politely if she could get her to stop. the woman didn't even apologize and the kicking continued for three hours."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "Had row all to myself--that's a rarity"
Cons: "1hr departure delay"
Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."
Cons: "Allowed me to take earlier flight"
Cons: "Significantly late & rude, as usual."
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Pros: "Getting off of that plane."
Cons: "I understand delays happen and are sometimes out of your control. However, customer service is something that you can, should, and must control. I witnessed a lack of self control of the American employees (including a Supervisor) and every point of my trip w/your customers. I was embarrassed for the American executive team."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Cons: "It was an hour + late. A trip I took from Washington two weeks before was late in both directions."
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to keep us updated about the flight delay"
Pros: "once I made it on it was smooth"
Cons: "plane in cos had to refuel so we were 20 late leaving and I bearly made it to next flight in dallas they were closing doors, young people ran but im old so could not move as fast, it was a challenge to not miss flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and the food was decent."
Cons: "Boarded us onto a plane with a broken engine, deboarded the plane and delayed the flight 4 hours. Then we sat on the tarmac for an hour after landing because they didn't inform the airport that we were in a new, larger plane."
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Cons: "Wait 4 hours for a delay flight"
Cons: "Same as above."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Seats were smaller"
Pros: "Boarding, on time and luggage handling were all smooth with no glitches"
Cons: "Snacks. Really, why bother."
Cons: "I required a wheelchair from gate to gate, on each gate I had to ask for it a few times, regardless that it said so in the computer. On one departure i bearly made as we ran really late. United reps seems kind of moody. Waiting for so eone to pick me up last minute made for a really stressful trip."
Cons: "united food is the worst"
Pros: "The timing."
Cons: "The landing was a little rough."
Pros: "The service was outstanding. There was a lot of space between the seats. A lot of movies to choose and the best part you don't have to pay for it. Nothing like other airlines. This is the best by far!"
Cons: "I did not like the seats. I was unable to recline and rest the way I wanted and did not like having to wait 45 minutes for baggage claim to drop my bags"
Pros: "We made it to our destination on time. We got some food and a selection of free drinks. I could choose the movies I would like to watch. There was plenty of space for hand luggage."
Cons: "I could not select my seat online, so I was assigned the worst seat. I was all the way in the back and in the middle. I could not lean back at all. The headrest was too high. I felt extremely uncomfortable the entire time. My entire neck and back hurt by the time we made it to our destination. This aircraft should NOT be used for flights that last more than 5-6h. In addition, since I was all the way in the back, I didn't have food options - I was given whatever nobody else (that got food before me) wanted. If I had known this, I would have brought food with me. And again, all this could have been avoided if only I could have selected my seat online."
Pros: "Food was good service was great"
Pros: "Nice steward and beverages served"
Pros: "The movie selection was great"
Cons: "The food was horrible"
Pros: "Staff great. New plane. Check in a breeze."

Cons: "You have to pay for food! It should have been included w/ the fair!"
Pros: "seats aren't so cramped."
Cons: "too cold. could have a few blankets on hand.."
Pros: "Everything went to well."
Cons: "Couldn't be more better."
Cons: "At EWR there were a lot of travelers but 1 agent until another one showed to help travelers at the kiosks. You ask for help and everybody asked can't do the kiosk, you have to wait. I have a lot patience but when it's a bunch of us and it take 20 minutes to get someone to help you, it's wrong."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "No drinks or snacks Well think it was only water or orange juice available"
Pros: "Good price. Good service."
Pros: "Nothing at all. Delta is the best I've been with."
Cons: "The attendant were the wrort I've ever. Continue to hit arms s d was very rude to passenger. One didn't close the over head bin while in sever tubulance."

Cons: "Sound was not working in my seat. Food was awful."
Pros: "On time bags made connection"
Cons: "Bad Service over all."
Cons: "Small loud plane"
Cons: "The seats were cramped. Many people carried on extra bags as the price per bag checked was $25.00 a bag -- so there was a lot of bags carried on and delayed the process."
Cons: "need to do pre assigned seating during the purchase of the tickets"
Cons: "The worst part was the new seats are the smallest ever. I could not sit without my knees jammed into the seat in front of me, and on both legs, Ithe seats were narrow that the people next to me and I were overlapping shoulders - that was a first. Unless its flights in the future are significantly advantageous, United's losing my business. It's not worth saving a few bucks to me to be so uncomfortable."
Pros: "United crews use to tell me you couldn't preboard with children but they must have changed that policy because they allowed it this time."
Cons: "They always ask a second time for the boarding pass after the first agent scans it. They should tell you to keep it out if they are going to review it a second time."
Cons: "It was late boarding and landing. Our bags were sitting in the rain."
Cons: "No TV"
Pros: "Got there."
Cons: "Small, cramped seating. Outdoor jetway upon arrival."
