Cons: Plane should have been clean due to Covid rules, but was not.
Pros: Free reschedule of flight.
Cons: Flight was cancelled for no reason.
Pros: The crew was great, comfortable
Cons: I was on a long business trip heading back from India. The flight was delayed leaving India which would have made me miss my connection in London to Phx. Fortunately the flight from London to Phx was delayed (because it was delayed arriving into London) and I was able to make my connection. Especially when we had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, there is no way I would have made my connection. While I know there are reasons for the delays, it is frustrating. After a long week of traveling and 21 hours of flying- ones patience does run out.
Pros: American really exceeded our expectations on both overseas flights on this trip. Good food, nice service, plenty of in-flight entertainment.
Cons: It was a quick and perfect flight.
Pros: Easy boarding, smooth flight, friendly staff.
Cons: Small plane, kept hitting my head on overhead bins
Pros: The service
Cons: The food
Pros: Nothing. Have not flown American airlines for the past 15 yrs because they always managed to have mechanical problems, delays, etc. Flew with then for the first time since, and again, mechanical problems. They kept us inside the plane for two hours. Because of that delay I missed my connection.
Cons: The hotel they put me in (Holiday Inn Airport) is like going back to the 70’s. Horrible experience overall. Needless to say, not flying American Airlines ever again.
Cons: Checked baggage untimely, causing me to miss the train
Cons: I have an american advantage executive credit card that allows priority boarding but at santo domingo’s aieport they didnt let me do priority. Terrible customer service from check in crew at the airport and no individual tv’s its boring
Cons: I had almost two hours to make my Moscow connection. I almost missed the flight! The bus transfers are awful. I will avoid this airport if possible. M
Pros: The fly it was on time
Cons: The food it was very bad
Cons: The seats could be bigger.
Pros: Just ok
Cons: No customs forms on board. Big inconveny
Pros: Boarding experience was excellent as we used a wheelchair.
Pros: Great service and entertainment options
Cons: Disgusting Food. Extremely uncomfortable seats: unable to recline far enough, my knees on back of seat in front of me, unable to sleep at all the entire trip. This was American Airlines, not British Airways. Cheap headphones kept falling out of line in port. TERRIBLE FLIGHT, Never Again!
Pros: The direct flight was great and made up for the rescheduled flight time in Memphis.
Cons: Original Flight did not depart on time.
Pros: Frequent updates on lightning in the area ( causing delays). Full service on board while we were wIting for weather to clear. Very good i flight service.
Cons: Just the weather — so nothing anyone can control
Pros: Made it to destination
Cons: Gate changed without any notification
Pros: Comfort, promptness, and food.
Cons: The original booked flight was about 12 hours before the rebooked flight. We got up at about 2:00 am to leave for the airport at 3:30 am for a 6:30 am flight. We were all packed and booked our ride and shuttinlpg down the computer at the last minute when we noticed an mail after midnight telling us the flight was cancelled. We called and were told there was nothing they could do, due to connections and this was entirely their fault. Approximately 12 hours later we took a “red eye” thus arriving a day late for our hotel and car reservations. We were charged baggage fees and not sure if our priority boarding will be refunded.
Pros: The trip was fast and efficient. The crew was very friendly and we had no issues.
Pros: Nice new aircraft - clean and comfortable. Entertainment selection and system is excellent. SFO airport is clean and efficient
Cons: I DO NOT like JFK airport. The signage is poor and it's difficult to figure out where you need to go. There aren't enough monitors and people in the airport are rude (including staff)
Cons: Seats are small and not ergonomic
Pros: Despite a departure delay due to necessity to off load some passengers due to nonfunctional seats we arrived 20 minutes early.
Cons: The seats are too narrow, which I can tolerate for about an hour.
Cons: They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed
Pros: Entertainment, courtesy, flight attendants, and service
Cons: Just being confined. But that's the nature of that beast
Cons: Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare.
Pros: I loved the crew on my trip
Cons: Nothing everything was grate
Pros: Nice seats, friendly staff and crew.
Cons: Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens.
Pros: Everything was crew, drinks and the flight was great!
Pros: Crew and promptness. Roomie seat.
Cons: No cellphone charger. No movie screen at the seat.
Pros: Flight went well despite some bad weather
Cons: Seating was uncomfortable and narrow. We had seats at exit door in an effort to allow for more leg room but even that did not make for a completely comfortable ride. Even on a bus you have enough room to sit without elbowing your neighbor. Cannot say the same for planes these days.
Pros: Great crew!
Cons: No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline.
Pros: Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops.
Cons: No issues.
Pros: It was good fly can't complaint the attention was great
Cons: When I was flying to Arkansas from NY they didn't give anything to eat
Cons: Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge.
Cons: Boarding was slow. Flight to Chicago which was at the same gate took way too long to board. Could not figure out the problem. Took WAY too long to get wheelchairs to unload passengers off the plane that was to take us to Dallas. Sat on the tarmac for additional 20 min. Delay cost me an additional 2 1/2 hours later in Dallas and FIVE hours in London airport!!
Cons: At the last minutes was told to go to seat next to the bathroom coz the airline made a mistake and have my seat to the other person. So unprofessional and disappointing.
Cons: 3 hour delay...and no voucher for the delay
Cons: One hour delay sitting inside the plane with no pilot!! And to top it off, the air conditioner was off!! Will never fly American ever again.
Pros: Crew and boarding was great.
Cons: Three trips around complex on train because of gate changes. Could have spent a short while eating, relaxing, instead of frantically thinking I was going to be late and miss my flight.
Pros: The leg room on these flights is becoming a joke. I purchase upgrades seats always and was appalled on this trip how aa seems to be trying to rip off customers more and more with any trick they can come up with. My extra leg room was barely acceptable for any flight. I can't imagine those behind me.
Cons: I really will avoid AA at all costs now. Just feels like a rip off every time I fly with them and their crew is rude.
Pros: Not much
Cons: All flights delayed and missed last flight in Charlotte costing me my hotel in wilimington and had still waiting to get on itto purchase an additional room in Charlotte. Staff in no hurry to assist!!!!!
Pros: Fast shuttle to our hotel
