Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."

Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."

Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour to get the gate. Unacceptable."

Pros: "Snacks that include a dairy free option like the kind granola bar"
Cons: "We were delayed like crazy."

Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."

Pros: "Short time and easy on and off boarding."
Cons: "One stewardess was in a mood but otherwise a very pleasant flight."

Pros: "Didnt expect dinner but was served"
Cons: "Delayed flight, offset entertainment, touch screen un responsive"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"

Pros: "crew kept a great attitude throughout"
Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"

Pros: "Everything was great, easy boarding, great idea (board ahead of your zone if you check bag free at gate), courteous staff, good food choices, arrived ahead of schedule, good movies."

Pros: "Clean plane, great breakfast options included with the flight. Crew was polished, helpful and genuinely nice! Gate agents at NYC were knowledgeable, organized, and quick. Boarding was a breeze. Impressive selection of movies for onboard entertainment choices."
Cons: "I thought the $11.00 fee for 30 continuous minutes of full Wi-Fi access was a bit pricey, esp when it kept getting disconnected and ended being about a collective 7-8 mins of access."

Pros: "Personality and charm of the flight attendants made it an especially relaxing trip."

Pros: "Fast boarding and complimentary snacks."
Cons: "I was seated next to a very large woman who came over the arm rest onto my seat."

Pros: "They were comprehensive and tried to move fast"
Cons: "Delayed flight because they didn’t had the crew ready"

Cons: "90 minute delay leaving LAX. Stuck on plane. 30 minuet delay getting to gate after landing at SFO. Stuck on plane again."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats are too crammed and uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great selection of movies"

Pros: "Food was plenty."
Cons: "Long security lines at Logan. No free WiFi"

Pros: "Crew was wonderful, fine flight, very prompt"
Cons: "Was unable to board an earlier flight without paying $75. If there are seats it shouldn't be so difficult to be moved."

Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"

Cons: "Delayed take off and waited for the bridgr"

Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."

Cons: "Got in early"

Pros: "What an easy flight. Run very well!"
Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable ... enough. Boarding process, once underway allowed me to get overhead bin and stash my other luggage in the seat below me. Flight wasn't overly booked (85-95%) so there appeared to be room for others to stretch out. Now about that crying kid..."
Cons: "Ugh. Weather delays. The flight was scheduled to board about 7P but it arrived late and they had to not only unload the self-loading cargo, but clean up afterwards. Would be nice to get a better estimate as to how long it would take to board so that I could hang out in the lounge. In addition, departure from JFK was delayed as well, either we missed the IFR window or got stuck behind some traffic and I fell asleep on the plane only to wake up what seemed an hour later just getting ready to hit V1. No upgrade."

Pros: "Being on time."

Pros: "We were not happy with our flight my flight got cancelled 3 times I miss work they need to reimburse us and also reimburses the hotel cuz we had to stay at a hotel because they cancelled our flight three times and then our flight that we went out on Monday was late because of a flight attendant arriving late to the hotel to the airport"

Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."

Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"

Pros: "The temp"
Cons: "It was too hot."

Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew lacked any customer centricity, service was poor"

Cons: "Zero communication to the passengers as to why we were delayed for almost an hour sitting on the plane"

Pros: "entertainment services"
Cons: "legroom"

Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."

Pros: "Excellent video selection, Sweetwater 420, cookies were good. Landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."

Cons: "Delayed four hours"

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Tv wouldn't work and delay that wasn't weather related and the food was awful"

Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour resulting missing connecting flight"

Pros: "Crew was polite"
Cons: "Rocky takeoff"

Pros: "same"
Cons: "same"

Pros: "Delta treats diamond medallion members better than any other airlines treats their elite members"
Cons: "No in seat entertainment"

Pros: "I liked the free in-flight entertainment - movies, music, HBO, etc. That was very nice and helped the flight fly by"

Cons: "They should have separate lanes on boarding like United. Then people can line up in the appropriate group."

Pros: "Some entertaining choices but not all clear which ones were in my flight"
Cons: "The food I wanted had sold out by the time I ordered it"

Cons: "I did not like being assigned to a seat that did not recline at all and was given no up front warning so it was a very unwelcome surprise at the start of my 6+ hour flight."

Cons: "Spent 90 minutes on the plane before it even took off."

Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "The flight was over two hours late because of winds in San Francisco."

Pros: "Flight attendant was very fun. It was her birthday and made the day fun for everyone."
Cons: "Seats are always too close together - left to right and front to back. A sad reality that only improves for the well-to-do."

Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Small plane, kept hitting my head on overhead bins"

Cons: "The terminal 52A-J is a disgrace"

Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."

Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"

Cons: "experienced a 1hr mechanical delay. it would be nice if refreshments were served."

Pros: "Actually had leg room on these flights and was pretty comfortable. Excellent crew, food pretty good too on the first leg."

Pros: "Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Internet slow to access."

Pros: "The row I was in was spacious, I'm glad that I paid extra to move closer to front of plane and then paid extra to get an earlier boarding. I would recommend seat 13C for these types of flights. Legroom was good and I was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment program was a bit glitchy towards the end of my flight, but I slept inside. Maybe check all screens and such because it wasn't really registering when I would push the buttons."

Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Surprisingly, AA provided the worst experience of the overall itinerary, compared to Aer Lingus and Iberia. The AA plane was outdated, cramped legroom - despite having purchased an "upgraded seat" and departed 1hr late"

Pros: "Nothing special, but no problems. I did pay for the fruit and cheese plate, which I think is a good deal for the price. Brie is better than you'd expect on a plane! Totally recommend it."

Cons: "tvs weren't working correctly during the entire flight"

Pros: "No entertainment nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."

Cons: "Felt sufforcation again and flight was delayed"

Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."

Cons: "No Gogo entertainment"

Cons: "I didn't get ANY flight status reports until I had arrived and was at my destination for the night!! American did a fine job. I got updates TODAY on my flight and baggage claim for yesterdays flight form you!!! Your service sucked balls!!"

Cons: "Again American Airlines was LATE. It was boarding time and no agent was at the gate. 10 minutes past boarding time the screen shows that the flight is delayed 25 minutes... but wait, there is still no plane at the gate! After 45 minutes the plane arrived, again had to be "cleaned" and prepared for flight back to SF. Customers were told the flight was delayed because Air Traffic Control issues in SF, but there was no plane in sight... Again I felt we were being lied to. The plane was filthy with garbage everywhere still. I will never fly American Airlines by choice!"

Pros: "That this flight didn't get cancelled"
Cons: "Well I didn't like that we sat at the airport for nearly 10 hours after multiple flight delays and cancellations. Why not just let us know we aren't going to be flying out. That way you could reduce the 10 hour anxiety attack and mixed emotions coming with all the drama. I also didn't like that the only flight we could get the next day was into San Jose (not SFO which is what I paid for) there wasn't any offer of reimbursement for hotel, taxi or flight. I also missed 2 extremely important fairs that my company was expected to participate in on Saturday Morning. I didn't like that when we landed in San Jose our bags were in SFO. Then American Airlines didn't want to get us a ride to SFO which we finally received after a lot of arguing which I don't find ideal. I feel like AA didn't take any responsibility. They kept saying it was weather related which I can't accept because other flights (including AA) were coming and going the entire day!!! One customer service member said the plane we were supposed to be on had to be maintenances and another said they didn't have a flight crew. The whole day was a disaster and it cost my thousands of dollars and many many hours of stress and anxiety."

Pros: "I can't comment on food or entertainment and there is no N/A option. I did not purchase food or use the wifi for entertainment. The seat I upgraded to was comfortable and spacious even if it didn't recline (I sat in front of the OWWE)."

Pros: "Pilot did a great job coming into SFO airport. Had to abort landing and do it again."
Cons: "Unless we slept through it, no food or snack was served. It was a 6+ hour flight. I was awake for water and soda offerings but not even nuts. To be fair, I may have been asleep but I woke up every time a drink was offered. We came from a connecting international flight with no time to get a meal. We grabbed a bagel as we rushed through the airport. I didn't pick the flight so we couldn't have more time."

Cons: "Lovely flight, but onboarding groups were a nightmare. Given the chaos, they started forcing bags to be checked early."

Pros: "Entertainment"

Pros: "Good communication"
Cons: "I don't understand why you boarded the flight when it seemed you knew there would be a delay to take off to SFO. We boarded only to learn we would sit at the gate for 30 min and the wait on the tarmac for anothe 40. Why not just delay the flight an board an hour later? It would have been a lot more comfortable in the terminal."

Cons: "Multiple delays, ended up having to change flights, then 2nd flight was also delayed. The only silver lining was the customer service representative, I think named Sofie(?) was astoundingly wonderful and helpful."

Pros: "The entertainment screens and the new seats in business class were very nice"

Pros: "Tebsnacks were awesome!!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Customer service was not great. They canceled my flight without any great reason. While I learned about another situation regarding my flight, I was not treated well on the phone by costumer service. I don't think I want to fly with American Airlines again."

Pros: "It's nice to see a large corporation getting back to the basics which helped their company grow CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!"
Cons: "The airport waiting times through TSA check points. It's over kill and an obvious reason just to extend employment. Reminds me of the old saying " the criminals are running the asylum @"

Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The snacks are good and the seats are fairly comfortable. The entertainment options were nice too."
Cons: "But paying $8 for 30 mins of Wi-Fi is just outrageous. I did not, and will not ever pay that much for internet service. Additionally, my bag was asked to be checked at the gate. Mind you, my bag was a Airline Compliant design, that fit into the overhead bin sideways on the same sized plane going out to Chicago. If the flight were full, I would understand them being cautious about space, but the plane was barely over half full. It was just an annoying inconvenience."

Pros: "Nothing absolute nightmare .. no water .. are you serious"

Cons: "The flight was delayed, the ground staff made no effort to update its passengers as the mood to grow angry, however instead two of the counter people continued to laugh joke and talk between themselves as everyone grew more and more restless by 6:30pm"

Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together."

Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."

Cons: "Crew was not skilled or kind in dealing with others around me. Had the finesse of a frustrated 10 year old when asking other to check their bags."

Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"

Pros: "IFE"
Cons: "Delay 1st leg. Had to rebook to later flight. Later flight delayed. Then delayed again due to crew time out. Arrived 4 hours later than originally scheduled. Meaning public transportation could not be used to get into downtown final destination. Made an originally short trip even shorter."

Pros: "How the pilot was insistent on the idea of taking off and flying, although we were informed of two system error messages, alledgedly the first for an issue with the AC, the other regarding the drain system. After our return to the gate for the second warning, I deplaned. Didn't feel safe after that!"
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."

Pros: "Flight attendants very kind"

Pros: "The crew was very helpful providing updates to our status. They moved us smoothly on and off the plane during the delay."
Cons: "Sitting on the runway for what seemed like hours. The initial boarding was confusing with multiple levels of priority boarding."

Cons: "The plane was freezing and made me very uncomfortable! I asked the flight attendant for a blanket and she told me no. Even though I saw some in first class.... I would have purchased one. It was very hard for me to fall asleep because of how cold I was. Comfort is one of the main things I expect in a 4 plus hour flight."

Pros: "Thank you for the new, comfortable plane"
Cons: "No IFE on 6 hour flight."

Cons: "All 3 of my flights were delayed due to mechanical issues. GET IT TOGETHER"

Pros: "All hostes are nice"
Cons: "İt was Delay almost 90 mins and the plane was so cold:)"
