Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was amazing! So sweet and great experience. Tatiana was really great and caring and was interesting to talk to. I sat across from her for take off and she was great."
Pros: "Areas of schede with flights. No incidents."
Cons: "Oversold on the way out. Didnt affect me. It could have."
Pros: "Getting to destination"
Cons: "Seats terribly small. No leg room. Sat on runway 30 mins before departure totally cramped"
Pros: "This was a quick flight - 39 mins I also got an upgrade too"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The gate change was not announced on my phone app (changed from E7 to D49). I hate leaving out of Terminal E at MIA. There is no point to having TSA Pre-Check if you have to stand in line with people who don't have it. I have to remove my liquids and laptop. It's such a shabby, run-down terminal."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have the individual TVs on every screen given how long the flight was. At this point it seems like most international flights have them so I would have appreciated it here"
Pros: "loved the free movies on board, also on time departure and before time arrival makes me feel the best."
Pros: "Deplaning in White Plains"
Cons: "Boarding the way there, they did not honor my AA Advantage card to board earlier because my boarding pass did not say so. Even after seeing it said so in the computer system, they refused to honor it. So this time, I gave up and boarded with the last group. No prior warning was given that this plane would not allow for carry on luggage in overhead bins. Further were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies."
Cons: "super delayed, then delayed more on tarmac due to OVERVfueling."
Pros: "Boarding has been fast, food and entertainment were very good."
Pros: "The have the lotus cookies which is my favorite ."
Cons: "Broken plane, re-route and conflicting inaccurate email updates."
Pros: "How fast they had us in the air (5 min early)."
Cons: "In their rush to leave, they didn't communicate with the on board crew about overhead bins and I was forced to check a priceless item that I purposely wanted with me in the cabin. The overheads were empty above my own seat. I wasn't allowed to go back and reclaim my bag because they had already taken it. And they were completely indifferent to my situation, which isn't surprising given they didn't understand the value of my item. Thus, I had a full blown panic attack for my entire 2 hour flight, my medicine being one of the items also in my now checked bag. It was too late, my bag was taken and thrown under the plane by the time it struck. And the flight attendants also had on perfume that brought on a tension headache due to my sensitivity to scents. Considering they work in a recycled air tube, this seems like a vast oversight on their part and should consider that not everyone can handle even the faintest of perfumes. It may not seem like a big deal to them, because mental illness is still seen as a made up thing, but it was enough of a trigger that I will not fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "On time, even early arrival."
Cons: "Couldn’t get a WiFi to work in flight to watch a movie."
Cons: "Canceled flight. Moved us to another flight IN ANOTHER CITY. Changed our second reschedule flight gate from one end of the airport to the other. NONE of the walkways worked. Total unorganized mess - this airline is run like idiots are running it! Very challenging as I have CHF."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was cancelled and I was unable to reschedule from this airport, resulting in an increased price of almost $1,000."
Pros: "Either Frank needs a raise or the register personnel need additional training. It seemed every time the desk needed assistance, they were hollering for Frank. May be nice to have an ear set for personnel so they aren’t hollering amidst the chaos. Honestly, I sat at Gate E16 for almost 2 hours and genuinely want to say, “Great job!” to Frank. He kept a level head through the madness and maintained his professionalism all the while. Thank you for your hard work, Frank. We need more like you."
Cons: "Poor breakfast option for lactose intolerants."
Pros: "Very nice in flight staff"
Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Connection from SAN to PHX seemed cheaply made."
Pros: "My flight was early"
Cons: "I had to pay an extra $5 because I did not have a card to check my luggage."
Pros: "During the time we were wkaiting for final decision on the flight delay I did not like any activity from crew and AA's emplyees."
Cons: "I understand some delays can occur due to tecnical problems and most of the times they are out of control but negative issues related to communications they are controllable and they must be reviewed and implemente properly."
Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "Easy access to the Laboratory, location of my seat"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not that friendly and do not like me asking for so much water (4 times) on a 9.5 hour flight. This was operated by American Airlines...they need to be nice and smile. I asked for a gluten-free meal which they did not have two hours later I find attendant gave me a meal from first class but someone did not eat. A little disappointed!"
Pros: "The staff were fine and boarding went relatively smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was dated and small. There were no individual screens for entertainment. I've flown internationally with American before and felt this specific experience was worse."
Pros: "Pilot did good job in tricky conditions at landing."
Cons: "Wish food were served."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent! Flight was top notch! A+++ , very friendly people and nice to talk to!"
Cons: "A hippie beside me opened up his homemade fish and garlic hummus! But excellent on American Airlines end!"
Pros: "Quick and smooth flight."
Cons: "American Airlines made me check my carry-on luggage, despite there being many open overhead compartments visible on the plane."
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Pros: "Everything was great. Comfortable seats & good service."
Cons: "Unfortunately, the flight was delayed because of a "problem with the plane"- we had to wait at the gate for 2.5hrs for the mechanics to work on it."
Pros: "Clean, smooth flight, on time."
Cons: "Small plane claustrophobia, entertainment required your own debice"
Cons: "American Airlines delayed my flight over 16 hours. Very unhappy."
Pros: "Flight was delayed and hour and they lost out baggage. Did not have clothes for 2 days"
Pros: "Staff was pleasant and efficient. Schedules met my needs."
Cons: "Seats on smaller planes were very tight!!! It's not just your butt in the seat but where do you put your elbows?!?!?!?"
Cons: "The 5 hour delay"
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight,so even though I had a ticket and was NOT standby, I almost didn't make it on even though there were seats available (after two people forfeited their seats) bc they were worried about over-weighting the plane. Then they packed us like sardines into the back row of the plane."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
Pros: "Friendly and prompt service."
Pros: "The entire process from check in to boarding to the actual flight was wonderful"
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."
Pros: "Loved the check in process, crew was friendly and flight was great"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, LOVED the enterainment system!"
Cons: "No complaints here."
Cons: "Issues with the booking company Justfly.com and we had several changes in our flight. When we got to the airport one of us was not even in the passenger's list. In the next connecting flight, my reservation was cancelled!! Worst booking company ever. Never work with them. Cheers"
Pros: "QUE SEA PUNTUAL"
Pros: "I was very impressed with the ease of check in and the very professional staff. One woman in particular stands out, she went out of her way to make sure everyone was satisfied. She even remembered my name after meeting me only once, and the flight was fully booked. I really liked the monitors at every seat and the choices of free in flight movies."
Cons: "My only complaint is that American Airlines has the very uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Ticket price is reasonable when I bought it 6 weeks before my trip."
Cons: "No entertainment. Plane is old and crowded. Boarding was very late. The rest was just ok."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. We weren't given an accurate time, then we sat on the runway for 40 minutes"
