Cons: "Never happened. Had to be cancelled cause we missed our main flight."
Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"
Pros: "The crew was sensational. Everyone really loved working for American, which tells me it's an employee sensitive and supportive company, and that is reflected in their attitude which is what makes my trip so pleasant. I love the darkening windows - great for daytime flying back from Europe when the whole plane becomes tranquil! Food was very good on this flight! Pilot spoke very clearly and was very informative."
Pros: "We got upgraded...Happy New Year to us!!! Service was excellent...landing was one of the smoothest we have ever had! Nice quiet flight with not too many people on board! I will use American Airlines again!"
Pros: "I really like the 737..the seats were so comfortable. I miss the old school planes when things were quality. The seat declined further and the headrest was comfortable and not too tall. And I especially loved the service of our flight attendants. Overall this was a very quality flight."

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Cons: "Not a fan of baggage fees especially this high for only one checked. Next time Southwest Air, I guess."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed 30 minutes, with no explanation. Upon arrival, another airplane was in our gate, resulting in an additional 30 minute wait, buckled in my seat on the tarmac."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy gate agents were awesome."
Cons: "Older plane. Very uncomfortable"

Pros: "Another great flight. On our plane the entertainment was free and I was able to watch a lot of movies. We even landed early"
Cons: "I know it was a very long flight and my butt and legs were hiring by the time we landed. Also I'm lactose intolerant. And I wasn't able to eat any of the food. But it did look good. But overall a very good flight."
Pros: "The flight was on a Boeing 737 plane with IFE at every seat. I found that very helpful and watched movie and a half."
Cons: "The Priority experience at JFK is not quite Priority - just 1 TSA agent checking priority customers and not all the time - if the security line is full, no one moves."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Pros: "Check in Miami Stewards Miami Quito portion"
Cons: "Being 3 1/2 hours late from Quito to Miami Being delayed from Denver to Houston and switch to United to coach seats, they did give us coupons though, but after the fact . Luggage arriving late from Denver, customer service didn't have a clue were the luggage was. As we were leaving to come back next day the luggage, we saw it in a carrousel, and pick it up. Republic flight from New Orleans it's not worth it the business class, very poor service ."
Cons: "Flight has to stop over to refuel (unplanned on a "non-stop" flight). TV entertainment was bad, inappropropriate and boring. Personal entertainment monitor did not work for the first leg of the flight. Got to final destination 2hrs after schedule. No food for international flight, even considering an additional 2hrs on top of the 6.5 hr flight."
Pros: "-friendly staff -clean plane (inside) -smooth landings departure/return -first snack and beverage included -fast flight -confident pilots"
Cons: "-overhead crowded (luggage) -ac didn't really work well on the return. Was hot the whole ride. Started blowing cold air when landed. -paying extra for picking seat not worth it."

Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Pros: "I had ample room and I really like the biscuits"
Cons: "Narrow seats . No plug in for music or phone .. Bare minimum for same cost as better flight"
Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"
Cons: "They should have made contact with our next flight as soon as we landed to tell them to keep the door open, it took a long time to get off the plane and I had to run all the way across the airport only to still miss my flight because they had just closed the door. My plane was still sitting there for about 10 minutes they must have JUST closed the door and still wouldn't let us on"
Cons: "That it got cancelled"
