Air booking isn’t reimbursing us and want US to pay $400."
Pros: "Nothing was better than standard"

The continental breakfast had nothing continental about it"
Cons: "The legroom on AA's new planes is atrocious."

Pros: "I did not like any of it."
Cons: "We couldn't hear any of the group calling. There were so many different reward members that by the time group B was called I had to check in my baggage. I was not able to pick another seat during ticketing.

Cons: "Terrible customer service, multiple flight cancellations"
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Cons: "Headphones should be provided in flights"
Cons: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "When going to website to link to free entertainment the flight is wifi capable but you must purchase Internet. Not sure why they did not make the move to add free entertainment on a 4+ hour flight."

Cons: "No entertainment no offer to up grade"
Cons: "When I noticed on the itinerary that the layover only gave me 35 minutes I knew it would be a problem. I missed my flight and never got to Pensacola . AA staff were not very Empathetic. It seems to happen often. I'm in a hotel and praying that my flight leaves today."
Pros: "Crew were nice and as accommodating as possible."
Cons: "On a round-trip, both airplanes on outbound and return flights had mechanical failures, resulting in over 3hr delays both times.

Pros: "No weather issues this time"
Cons: "Nothing good flight"
Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."

Pros: "Power outlets. Friendly staff."
Cons: "What entertainment was there? No movie, you had to pay for internet. United to me seems to be a lesser luxurious airline, not like how it use to be. It’s apparent that they are making some cut backs. Not liking this bag fee they’ve added."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Stewardess was impatient, rude and not helpful. Asked for milk & it was spoiled which made my daughter gag. Worst part is I called United to confirm they would take care of the transfer of my luggage all the way to my final destination even with sleeping over in Japan & they said yes. Turns out, I had to get all my luggage & check it back in the next day."

Pros: "Male flight attendant was friendly and relatable"
Cons: "Very rocky flight, female flight attendant was mocking male attendant, reading from the manual so I was hearing all the possible worst things that could happen and sanitary conditions of the bathrooms, very unpleasant.
