Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "I have an injury so I paid extra for 'extra leg room" but there's a wall between economy and business class so very little legroom. My leg was hurting a lot and the flight attendants had to find me a different seat because I could not stay there for 5 hours. I wouldn't have paid extra for this seat."
Pros: "The seat is uncomfortable"
Pros: "The Cabin Crew were very kind and always cared about your comfort."
Pros: "some what and it could be better"
Cons: "the help you get from the crew and if they wouldn't make so many gate changes"
Pros: "Woman at ticket counter was great. Was traveling with 2 kids and she moved our seats closer to the front"
Pros: "I liked the ability to choose my meal ahead of time."
Cons: "Pre-boarding drinks could have been offered to all business class customers, but again, the flight attendants with American aren’t as customer service oriented as those from Delta."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There were no headrests for sleeping or TVs on thr airplanes. Also the flight departure time kept getting pushed back and ended up leaving over and hour late as did our last flight with american."
Cons: "No personal entertainment for an international flight."
Cons: "Overall terrible experience, flight attendant was extremely rude when i asked if they were offering sparkiling wine. Flight was delayed due to overbooking on american. Turbulence was horrible the entire flight. The in flight entertainment was unavailable for some reason."
Cons: "Crew was rude, and we had to wait an hour to leave, I understand things happen, but then we were rerouted mid flight so it was inconvenient and again I get it, things happen. But the landing was incredibly rough and the pilot didn’t apologize. That would have made things better, but he said nothing about being sorry we were delayed and nothing about the rough landing."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff, as always!"
Cons: "Far too cramped for seating; im a big guy, but still!"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful of the flight was fine!"
Cons: "Arriving 2 hours before my flight I had a hard time getting through security because of my handicap situation, I arrived at the gate as the plane was leaving the gate, whie American Airlines where able to get me on the next flight, the flight was 3 hours after my original flight! JW"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. The flight was on time."
Cons: "A bigger snack should have been provided on such 3-hour flight."
Cons: "We had to sit in separate sections on the flight."
Pros: "Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself."
Cons: "There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie."
Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."
Pros: "Overall solid flight"
Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."
Pros: "Not a single part has a positive remark"
Cons: "Well - this partner of westjet was terrible. The amount of re direction to get to the final terminal was absurd .. that's just my venting My real problem is that then "crew" or team that represent s the American Airlines / compass part was just useless. A hand full of people - myself included didn't get a chance to board the plane as they didn't make any announcements. Beyond disappointing. When you check in they take your cell phone "in case " well no call no txt no nothing. It was a joke the level of service No apologies or anything just a group of any tired patrons getting the worst customer experience. I'll never EVER book a flight that has anything to do with American Airlines or its partners"
Pros: "I enjoyed the customer service, the nice landing and the pilots recognition that too many announcements on night time flights is unwanted."
Cons: "I was on the plane for 50 minutes before we departed. I was in group 6. The people before my group waited even longer. I also don't like Americans stand alone terminal at LAX; there's no vendors or services there."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Seats were very small and very tight bags did not stow under seats like usual"
Pros: "Smooth and easy experience, newer plane (and clean!), exit row is great with lots of leg room."
Cons: "Seats are small"
Pros: "Flight attendants were courteous and hardworking. Made sure all passengers were taken care of."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"
Cons: "The PA system was not working in the terminal, so crew member had to yell for passengers to hear her while calling out the groups to board."
Cons: "AA changed my flight plans without advice me. THEY ARE BREAKING MY BAG. The flight was very late. They ask me to pay $300"
Pros: "The people where great. But this does not make up for what happened."
Cons: "1. Undisclosed LAX bus ride time limit to get to gate. BS 2. Undisclosed LAX bus ride to gate. BS 3. Alaska Airlines never explained at ticket purchase that it was at American Airline Terminal. Caused a 8 min walk to AA terminal from Alaska terminal. BS 4. None of this was explained at ticket purchase. Not happy. Probably will never try to fly Alaska Airlines again."
Pros: "Flew 1st class, everything excellent"
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed. that meant I arrived home at 1am. That is a very rough morning."
Cons: "Fight was operated by American. Alaska forced to wait in line and see assistance, then inform that because the flight is operated by American, they won't be able to check me in. Had to walk to a different terminal of LAX wait in 2 more lines and by the time they were able to assist it was too late to check in. Missed the flight, have to rebook a 3 hour later departure, move the meeting and take a flight back 4 hours later that has a layover and adds about 2.5 hours more on the return leg. Not to mention having to pay for the new seat."
Pros: "Fast boarding. Arrived earlier. Nice plane, very clean."
Pros: "Overall, one of the most enjoyable International flight experiences I have ever had."
Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. I know it's not AA's fault, but still, despite how nice the plane and staff were, I was sweating bullets for two hours!"
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Pros: "We flew safely!"
Cons: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Watched an entire season of High Maintenance."
Cons: "Advertisements were a bit much. Also, if everyone is confused about where the spoon is on the ice-cream, maybe you should show them when you hand it out instead of trying to make them feel stupid for asking."
Pros: "Quick flight. but my row and some others behind us did not get beverage service. Never had that happen before."
Pros: "New airplain."
Cons: "As usual bad luggage handling in USA. At passport control, noticed that my luggage handle was removed half way but I had to re-check in the luggage and airline people did nothing about the handle with tag. And the luggage was lost. Can someone study how other country luggage handler care about customers ' luggage? Save your operation cost!"
Cons: "The airline had trouble with the plane. After we waited 3 hrs in the plane they cancel the flight. They offer a hotel but it was very dirty"
Pros: "Flight delayed which allowed us to make connection after long runway and customs delays. Crew friendly and helpful. Prompt cabin service. Baggage brought quickly in SAT. Clean plane. Power source."
Cons: "Local pickup at SAT is now devoted to taxi. Airport police rude. Most people picked up at 11PM and hard for cars to get to curb or see passenger due to taxi line. Both terminals terrible after several experiences in last couple months. SAT worst pickup experience that I see national and international travel. Obvious that cabs and air port police are the worst congestion problem I experience."
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Cons: "Had a passenger behind us that was coughing the whole flight with what we think was a cold and now we are both sick with colds."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "We sat behind a 3 year old child. Very loud screaming jumping. Parent did not have control over child. The stewardess did not seem bothered. The longest most miserable flight EVER!!!!"
