Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean, neat and well maintained. The crew was friendly. Process of checked-in luggage was seamless and straightforward."
Cons: "I found the istructions on some restricted items to be confusing and contradictory between instructions at the airport, the AA website and the TSA website. The agent at the counter was well-informed, though, and it all ended up going well."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Cons: "more legroom"
Cons: "Late with a bs explanation. Nasty flight attendant"
Cons: "Hard to say...it seemed good. I would have liked complementary baggage check"

Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."

Pros: "People were nice about screwing us ocer."
Cons: "We boarded on time. But then we sat outside forever because apparently they had too much fuel. Then we left 40+ minutes late. Then when we got to Dallas our fate was taken. Then I missed my flight. Then they offered NO support. They would not pay for a hotel and I'm presently sleeping on the airport floor. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER AND I WILL NEVER FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES AGAIN."

The plane was clean and full of all the technology I could've asked for to keep me occupied during the whole flight."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't enjoy about my experience. Thank you for getting me there and back safely!"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the pilot did a nice job of getting us to and from Miami. Thank you!"
Cons: "The flight time said an hour, yet our arrival time was 6 hours. Then we proceeded to sit on the runway for 20 minutes before take off and now at 45 minutes after we landed. Someone should have planned gates and deplaning schedules better, it's an awful experience sitting and doing nothing when you're so close to being home. The other thing that was bothersome was on this 6 hour flight, my entertainment screen didn't work. Which not only meant I would need to entertain myself for the next 6 hours, but also there wasn't a way to get the flight attendants attention. When they came around with drinks, I asked two of them how to fix the screen and they gave me two different answers which neither worked. Then when I needed anything I would have to make my neighbors move and go walk to find someone. Overall not my favorite flying experience and didn't feel taken care of by the crew or AA. And to think I spent extra money to fly with AA..."
Pros: "It was a very peaceful flight. The crew was extremely professional, and courteous, one of the members went out of her way, and frankly it was the kindest flight attendant has been to me in a while."
Cons: "The typical complaint you would hear regarding airplane food. Though, it does not warrant a true complaint of the flight."
Pros: "We left 55 minutes late. Person at counter was annoying. Kept grabbing the microphone, think he liked hearing himself talk. Wanted to valet all the carryons but there was room in the airplane for them."
Cons: "being late and uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Small plane"
Pros: "Enjoyed the rare opportunity to fly first class."
