Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Excellent Service"
Cons: "More recent movies"
Pros: "Great 1st class service."
Cons: "Food served in 1st class fair"
Pros: "The flight attendants were the best!"
Cons: "Even though there were 4 seats across, the rows were too close together and there was absolutely no space at the back by the toilet. The last 3 overhead bins were non-existent for passengers (being taken up with flight equipment). Extremely uncomfortable plane!"
Cons: "The head phone jacks were loose so watching a movie was extremely difficult. The aisle is so small you can’t even walk down it without bumping people who are seated. It seemed like none of the crew wanted to be there."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "I just like flying in general"
Cons: "Flying oo high of the altitude made my ears feel like they’re about to burst."
Cons: "AA seats are very small and narrow. The reclining part was uncomfortable. I prefer legroom and comfort at Delta Airlines."
Pros: "Booked week ago, expensive but seating was comfortable, crew first class, in economy."
Cons: "All. Crew did not arrive on time. Boarding was a mess. Many arguments with customers."
Pros: "Great flying great time"
Cons: "Great flying great time"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "They moved us to 6 different gates and took us off a plane due to computer problems."
Pros: "The pilot got us to Dallas ahead of schedule which was a big help because I was concerned about making my connecting flight. The stewardess assured me of the process and said not to worry."
Cons: "The food combination was a bit strange and we need a non spicy option. The bibimbop was good because I could control the amount of spice."
Pros: "Got bumped up to main cabin extra for free whiskey"
Cons: "2 hour delay on first flight making me miss my second flight and instead of arriving home at 3 pm I won’t be home till about 10 pm .... definitely reconsidering booking American Airlines again...."
Pros: "The boarding experience was quite smooth. The flight itsekf was very good. I must commend the piolots for doing a wonderful job."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for extra leg room and had to board with Group 7. I think that was ridiculous. I was unable to connect to gogo in-flight internet network. It was the second flight in which it was not available."
Pros: "Crew was nice and flight enjoyable"
Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was delightful. Nothing special with a flight, as long as its was on time."
Cons: "After boarding the plane, it lost power. We sat at the gate with no air conditioning for almost an hour. While they tried to jump start the plane. After deboarding due to the heat (Dallas temps around 105 F), instead of telling us the next available plane to put us on was going to be 5 hours later, they delayed the flight 15-30 minutes at a time. This was a flight from Dallas to Austin and I could have rented a car and driven in a shorter amount of time."
Pros: "Nice seats, good food, good service"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding process was pretty quick."
Cons: "The plane had one of those aggravating screens on the back of every seat. I turned it off AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES and it kept coming back on, first to try to sell me on a credit card offer, then to show me previews of movies I wasn't going to watch on a 5 AM FLIGHT that was lasting 75 MINUTES. I finally tore a page out of the AA magazine and wedged it against the screen so I could actually sleep without it constantly blinking on and disturbing me. Next time, I'm going to smash the screen. If I want it off, leave it off."
Cons: "Snacks were okay, nothing to shout about. Streaming movies is still of a mystery to me, not an intuitive experience in any sense of the word. the sites AA provides to answer one's questions don't give any real guidance on 'how', just state what, kept pointing me to the app which doesn't have any menu item to view movies. took me well over ten minutes to find any helpful information."
Cons: "Too cramped."
Pros: "Great selection on movies to pass the time and charging port for mobile devices ."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "I had a weapon to check and found that one of the case locks had been broken. With only minutes to spare a Huntsville TSA bag checker donated a personal padlock so I could make my flight. 5 stars."
Cons: "Monotonal flight orientation. Follow a Southwest Airlines model and add some vigor!"
Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"
Pros: "It was nice having 2 seats to myself, although there was a 45 minute delay in leaving, we still arrived nearly on time."
Cons: "We had a delay in leaving. People were told they could move around to a different seat because there were so many open. Then they allowed more people on so they had to get people to move back. I stayed in my original seat but others were upset and it was too much confusion going on."
Pros: "Everything was fine---smooth flight, no problems until after landing."
Cons: "We waited 45 minutes on the tarmac for a gate before we could deplane."
Cons: "My grandparents were supposed to have escorts and assistants with their baggage, as they don't speak English and are elderly. In addition, one of their suitcases was lost and the other was rifled through. The overall service was very discouraging."
Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seats to get more legroom in main cabin. But legroom in Row 6 was still cramped."
Pros: "Great having plugs, nice seats"
Cons: "First leg of flight did not have personal TVs, so limited selection of entertainment"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was perfect, new, and relevant. I also had an empty seat between myself and another passenger so my legs weren't as cramped."
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"
Pros: "The airline was great."
Cons: "It airfare.......I've never in my life had to deal with such an unprofessional company in my entire life! I'm honestly shocked that you use them considering your a creditable company. I was screamed and cursed at hung up on and also cancelled off my flight the morning of and then had to pay an additional $100 to get back onto the flight! When I checked online they have nothing but bad reviews. Unfortunately I will not be booking through kayak again in fear of having to deal with airfare."
Pros: "Flights were on-time, planes were clean/newer, snacks were good."
Cons: "Their boarding/de-boarding process was quite inefficient - they have boarding zones, but then you just go to a shuttle and it's a free for all at the plane."
Cons: "When they finally found the crew they had been working so long, they weren't allowed to fly for another hour because of regulations. For overpriced flights, youd think they would be able to hire some more crew"
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Cons: "delayed so long we missed our connection"
Pros: "Friendly-on time-love the charlotte airport"
Pros: "For what airlines fees this high, meals should be included....meals that are offered are redicous priced."
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."
Cons: "Missed the connection in CLT to BTR even though flight status on AA's website indicated that it was delayed enough so that I could make the connection. Ended up spending the night in a cold-assed airport with minimal comfort. I was already confirmed on this flight and AA knew, or should've known, that I was enroute. Not pleased at all."
Pros: "Prompt boarding & early arrival. Staff was also friendly"
Pros: "Enjoyed my flight, good to be flying American I wish I could fly AA every time"
Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"
Cons: "The 1 hour delay"
Cons: "American Airlines and the entire Terminal 5 in Rome did a horrible job of communicating with all outgoing flights on Monday the 18th when their computer systems went down. They kept us outside the terminal for two hours without restrooms or any explanation, finally began sending groups inside only to wait more hours past our flight time. Finally made it to delayed boarding several hours later, only to have them inform us at the bottom of the tube to go to plane that the flight was cancelled!!! Just said pick up your bags on Carousel 10 and that was it. Got our bags and booked a hotel to go to for the night, and they came out and said they were going to bus us to a hotel for the night. The hotel I booked was un-refundable and when I called American about our flight the next day that got messed up too and ended up with an extra five hour layover between flights. When we went to board from Charlotte to Nashville, the boarding agent announced we didn't have any pilots!!! So with a full flight, had to wait for them to find us some pilots. Will not fly American Airlines again if I can help it! Also the tv/entertainment units on the flight didn't work properly."
