The gate was changed 3 TIMES, very frustrating. Flight full and packed like sardines. My original flight from Zurich to London canceled and I could NOT fly business class as planned.
Treated first rate in first class. The crew had such a happy, even jolly, demeanor that one couldn't help smiling and enjoying the experience. Thoughtful enough not to wake us for breakfast when they saw wife and i sleeping soundly after early morning departure. We would gladly fly Alaska Airlines again.
Entertainment did not work for us
The gate agent (when I got off my flight from Lexington to Charlotte) had dismissed the person who was supposed to wheelchair me to the next gate I waited 10 minutes for her to call for another wheelchair assistant After 25 minutes of saving I ask her to call again as no one had shown up She was too busy talking to a friend and then left and went up to check on the next flight while I sat there I personally flag down three people asking for assistance Finally one of them told me that a person with a clipboard type device would be the one to help me I explained I had had nothing to eat in Lexington my way there because the restaurant closed due to some kind of flooding or other plumbing problem before my order could be brought to me I saw a person with a clip for type of device is actually help me get to the restaurant where I waited in line to get a table This person stayed with me as long as she could before she was called to assist another customer I was able to get something to eat then had to walk to my fly and barely made it onto the flight I have never been treated so poorly as I was in this situation I have a new knee and was in a lot of pain and was hungry I would like someone from American to contact me and indicate what Itgey will do id to compensate me for my time, trouble, and inconvenience as well as pain in his poor treatment of a customer
The first-class flight attendant from LIT to Mia was very professional and a nice older experience attedent .
Pros: "This was the worst flying experience I have ever encountered."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac 3 hours, then deplaned to a holding area for another hour and then were told the flight would be delayed until 1 pm the next day. I booked this flight in order to arrive home 7 hours earlier than originally planned on Alaska Air. I finally arrived 20 hours LATER THAN I WOULD HAVE ARRIVED!"
Pros: "Crew were lovely, let me sit in the cockpit. Drinks/snacks were rapidly distributed to facilitate sleep during the redeye, legroom in my extra legroom seat was sufficient, and bathrooms were large. Also, we left swiftly and arrived on time."
Cons: "Lack of IFE screens was disappointing and the seats had zero padding."
Cons: "I missed boarding by one minute and was told there was nothing they could do. Our connecting flight landed on the other side of the airport and after literally running through DFW, we were told our flight home had already boarded, we arrived at 6:21, flight left at 6:30. American Airlines screwed us again. Just paid $300 for a rental vehicle so I could make it home."
Cons: "Not telling us we would be arriving 30 min early and then getting in 30 min later than scheduled AND Having priority baggage actually be a priority"
Cons: "There is nothing that this company can do to be better."
Cons: "We were early arriving on both legs of our flight, which was nice. Charlotte Airport staff was rude as usual, so nothing new there. Overall, we had a great trip."
Pros: "Mechanical difficulty and ineptitude -twice at repairs. Undisclosed landing complications due to runways issues in Phoenix resulting in missed connections."
Cons: "Reasonable arrangements were made for hotel, shuttle, and meal voucher, but the airport was virtually closed for the night and getting to ground transportation nearly impossible. Thank the airport cleaning service who were the most helpful"
Cons: "On the red eye from Anchorage to LAX in Business class the A321 was ok as far as comfort. Same duration flight fromLAX to MIA, same plane, but we received a nice pillow and blanket, as well as a little travel kit and bottle of water. Seems strange there are different standards for the same duration"
Cons: "Everything comfort communication"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Pros: "Flight delayed for 12 hours. Had to reschedule both flights"
Cons: "See above. Missed work."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Far and away the most uncomfortable and worst value-for-money international flight I've experienced. This plane is so old it should be put in a museum. The warm food was terrible and the non-hot food was completely frozen so even if I wanted to eat it, this wouldn't be possible. Individual seat in-flight entertainment screens have been the norm for many years, yet this plane had the community-style in-flight entertainment. Half of the time, the screens weren't working, which just made matters worse. The total lack of legroom and chair ergonomics made getting comfortable nearly impossible. I was literally in pain sitting in these seats. I live in Prague and visit family in the US often. This was my first experience with American Airlines' newer direct flight option from Prague to Philadelphia; based on the extreme discomfort of the inflight features and to top it off it was the highest price I've paid for a flight back home...(total lack of value for the money! )I would go out of my way to make sure I never take this route again."
Pros: "The service and the kindness from the crew."
Cons: "No sit for handycap to pull their leg away nor bathroom for handycap enough room to sit on toilet."
Cons: "This was an updated 737 with pleather seats and a sleek look inside. But what matters most is leg room for me. There was none. I flew for 5 hours in totally cramped conditions. I loved the page in the mag about seat exercises to keep your leg circulation up. Couldn't bend my knees even. Disgusting"
Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Comfortable journey. Our pilot was a woman! Go girl power!"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work. You couldn’t download the American Airlines app. The crew forgot to give me my complimentary drink. After attempting for 10 minutes, Gave up."
Pros: "It got cancelled and the flight company took 500 usd dollars back from me"
Cons: "Boarding was poorly set up."
Cons: "Seats smaller than before."
Cons: "Flight was fine but took 20 minutes to find a gate agent at DCA to let us off the plane."
Cons: "Told me that if I checked my carry on bag at gate, I'd be able to pick bag up from from the gate at the other end. Instead it went to baggage claim with took more than 30 minutes."
Cons: "No wifi. No personal video. Old plane. Felt like 2005 domestic flight instead of 2017 international. I paid $135 each for 2 exit row seats, and everyone around me on the flight told me they had not paid anything and just received the seat today I won't fly AA again I don't think."
Cons: "Seats are not designed for long haul flights"
Pros: "excellent from ticketing to depaning"
Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Pros: "Great food and movie selection - awesome distraction from my usual flight anxiety."
Pros: "I loved our flight from Anchorage alaska to Los Angeles California. Flight attendants were kind and helpful. We had plenty of leg room and it was great flight. Loved our window seat."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight attendants snarky attitudes when we would ask for son."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "1. No individual monitors. The pull down shared monitors are antiquated and not the standard now. 2. Would not fly AA from SJU again because of this. Unless I preloaded my iPad with movies."
Pros: "Flight was delayed in classic AA form, ten minutes at a time, leaving you standing around the gate picking your nose with no information! An hour later we board. Our flight attendant Nicky was awesome!"
Cons: "The plane had no power outlets and spotty WiFi. Even though they knew we were late to Charlotte, they let our connection take off EXACTLY on time while dozens of us rand through the airport. AA does this to themselves, they are the worst!"
Pros: "I could not sleep comfortably at all. I have slept on airline beds that were extremely comfortable. This seat left me having to shift constantly to avoid discomfort. I also found the crew to be disorganized."
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Cons: "Provide food would be better"
Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."
Cons: "Our flight was about 50 minutes late in boarding. American should have announced why it was late and an approximate time"
Pros: "God service at the flight ."
Cons: "Canceled my first flight of American airlines, I had to wait 11 more hours, I had no compensation and nobody even apologized to me."
Pros: "Crews are very friendly, thank you"
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seats to get more legroom in main cabin. But legroom in Row 6 was still cramped."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Everything smooth. No hang ups"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the flight was smother and on time, boarding was timely"
Cons: "The plane was older with a poor entertainment system"
Pros: "Service and staff were great!"
Pros: "Quick flight, great service"
Cons: "Was not accommodated for a missed flight"
Pros: "I like the updated airplane were we all had our own Tv's to watch whatever we wanted"
Cons: "Had to switch planes twice late boarding food sucks it what to freaking hot in the plan seat where Uncomfy no freaking movie on our way back I'm not sure if I'll fly again with AA to many complains from people"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and tired! No energy. Plane was hot no AC when we boarded."
