Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything was great. But the American Airlines can improve on not letting non-first class passengers use the restroom up front."
Cons: "The food! Bring back real food please"
Cons: "First flight delayed 30mins due to crew rest issues."
Pros: "Quick Flight and nice crew."
Cons: "The crew wasn't the problem at all. Some of the passengers were just being obnoxious and sitting next to their friends not what their seat numbers were. The BIGGEST problem are the packed planes with no social distance between passengers which is a HUGE concern for me."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "board families with infants and children first"
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seat - and I’m thin."
Cons: "Outlets not working for my row"
Cons: "God knows how long we sat in the plane on the tarmac. I fell asleep! Totally missed my tour at the Airplane boneyard as a consequence. Way to go AA. You truly suck!"
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"
Cons: "Update from the pilot. Stalled for over 20 mins after landing with no update from staff as to the reason why. No entertainment. Sucked."
Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"
Pros: "Crew was extremely friendly and professional. Well trained, exceptional."
Pros: "Absolutely atrocious!"
Cons: "Dallas Airport needs to get themselves together. Especially American Airlines through Dallas. I wouldn’t wish the AA Dallas experience on my worst enemy.... yet another fail for AA Dallas."
Pros: "The seating is cramped as has become customary."
Pros: "Great polite crew attentive to every need"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Cons: "Flight was very late"
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "My seatbelt was installed incorrectly."
Pros: "Good leg room!"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay and the seat comfort for purchasing the main cabin seats was not as expected."
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class because I had to fly home early after I suffered a crushed wrist and broken arm while in Spain. I could not have made it through the flight without the extra room and pillows and my daughter by my side."
Cons: "The stewards and Stewardesses were very unfriendly. I was in so much pain and not one person asked if there was anything they could do to make the flight more comfortable. Just the kindness of offering would’ve been so nice. One girl just threw a water bottle in my lap!"
Cons: "lots of branding stuff-watching any video had you go through 3 minutes of commercials. I must have watched the same commercials over 20 times."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Pros: "Totally fine"
Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "We did get a beverage and snack."
Cons: "Flight attendants don't even acknowledge the passenger s existence. They talk to each other and ignore the passengers."
Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful and very accommodating. They were pleasant, nice to talk to, and attentive to all passengers. Special assist personal were polite, pleasant and extremely helpful."
Cons: "I did not understand if I booked with British Airways why my return flight was through American Airlines. I requested special accommodations with extra leg room as a result of recent knee surgery. My seat location was in row 34, the back of the cabin. Not as pleasant. Too far to walk leg room uncomfortable at times during the 8 hour flight."
Pros: "The Crew was very helpful and friendly. The food was surprisingly good."
Cons: "It was pretty cramped. That's just the way it is in economy."
Pros: "That we arrived safely and on time"
Cons: "The food was horrible for such a long flight and the seats were uncomfortable. Most airlines have neck braces to place one's head on. Neither flight had anything for one's head. I had my own blanket fortunately because it was cold...then hot... If one did not have an iPad or computer watching anything was impossible on a 6 hour flight. Never going to take this flight again aGAIN...NEVER PAID ADDITIONAL ON SUCH A LONG FLIGHT FOR SEATS. NEXT TIME I'LL STAND."
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Pros: "it was an american airline flight. good trip"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and very nice."
Cons: "The aisles are too narrow. As passengers are boarding and you sit in the aisles you are constantly struck. FAA should investigate with the decreased aisle width and distance between the seats, can the evacuation be completed within required time, in an actual emergency. American Airlines is endangering the lives of passengers. And the cramped conditions are contributing to the hostile actions of some passengers. What does it take to do what is right?"
Pros: "Nothing really. I feel for the crew. The space is so small and confining there is no room to work or move around"
Cons: "We thought we would get some decent amenities with a name brand carrier but American has basically become like Spirit or Frontier. International travel used to be exempt from impossibly small seats, lack of in flight entertainment and terribly overmatched crew members scurrying to try and complete their duties. Terrible. But the good news is if you pay an extra fee they will let you get on the plane first. More time to be miserable! Hoorah!!"
Pros: "The crew was excellent, timing was superb,"
Cons: "I don't understand why the carryon limitation can't be better enforced. I watched several people put multiple bags in the overhead compartments and nothing under their seats, yet those in boarding groups 3 & 4 often are required to check their baggage."
Cons: "As it was the continuation of an international flight, I believe I travelers like me deserved to be treated with free food and not just drink and water."
Pros: "I missed my flight due to LA traffic. American Airlines was very accommodating. They put me at ease and helped reach my destination. I wasn't treated like it was my fault. They totally understood and were very compassionate. Thank you."
Cons: "Arrived twenty minutes late. AA refused to accept responsibility for this and compensate me, even though my transportation had departed without me as a result of their tardiness."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Having to pay extra $$ for seating and not enough together"
Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination"
Cons: "AA changed my flight plans which resulted in a 4.5 hour layover in Philly. The gates were filthy, there is not much selection for in-flight food and nothing for entertainment. I couldn't even find an outlet that worked at the gate."
Pros: "Finally upgraded planes on this route. Dreamliner was very comfortable."
Cons: "Hour and a half delay for a scratch on a cargo door. Glad safety is a top priority but it must have been more this just a scratch."
Pros: "crew friendly and kind"
Cons: "old aircraft for a long (delayed and diverted) flight - no personal screens, dripping ceiling, no vegetarian options for snack (just turkey sandwiches),"
Cons: "First class"
