Cons: "2 hour delay on take off"

Pros: "there was nothing to like. A few hours before the early morning flight Alaska cancelled the flight and rebooked us fir a flight 12 hours later. Their phone is off during the night and we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night to get a flight that would get us to our cruise on time. A"
Cons: "use something other than Alaska and it will be better"

Pros: "Nice seats. Good crew"
Cons: "Tell us it's in terminal 1. We already had to go back and forth through terminal 2 from checkin on one side, back up escalater to other side, then back to check-in side through security. I had to drag my checking bag since you have an extra small check-in size, so my roller stayed home. Then once upstairs it's 1/2 mi through the terminal back to 1. I would have picked up a bag mover if I had any idea. Since I did check-in on line, I could have gone directly in terminal 1 if I was told. I also would have missed my flight if I hadn't come early to the airport."

Cons: "When I went to check in in San Jose, they told me I was double booked on the flight to Seattle. One booking was paid for but not connected with the Reykjavik flight and the other booking was not paid for and connected to the Reykjavik flight. I spent 30 minutes at the first class check in counter of alalska air and then another 20 minutes at the gate almost missing the flight."

Cons: "The entertainment they had on board was through your own electronic device and I didn't even think to bring earbuds so we couldn't watch anything but the flight was so short that it really wasn't needed."

Cons: "There was a horrible smell remaining from a previous flight. It was awful. The staff tried to spray but there was no hope. It was awful."

Pros: "Everyone was very nice and helpful. Taking care of everyone, and helping pacify some kids !"
Cons: "The only negative thing wasn't anything related to the flight or crew, just whom I happened to be seated next too!!"

Pros: "I loved the staff and the quickness of flying and boarding. Everyone was very polite and satiafactory to me."
Cons: "There was a malfunction in some electronic computeres on the way home that left us sitting at the airport on the plane for about fifty minutes. And i had to get back to go to work at midnight."

Pros: "San Jose, Calif to Guadalajara. Super nice crew, had some leg room in economy. Some drinks, two cookies and a bean burrito. Not much, but small quantity good amount in morning."
Cons: "Seats a bit slouchy. No lower back and headrests to forward. Made me more hunchback, and lower back achy (maybe that's normal for 3-4 hour). No tvs, snacks OK."

Pros: "Seats, coffee (serving starbuck"

Pros: "I liked the snacks and beer on the plane but that was it."
Cons: "I was 5 minutes late to my 6:30am flight because of sjc security being the worst, slowest, people ever. Then I was promised I'd make it on the 7:30am flight to Seattle but there was only one seat available so my friend went and I stayed behind where I was then told I'd definitely get on the next flight. But wait!! I wasn't allowed on the next flight and had to wait until a 12:55 flight all while sobbing and having the worst anxiety attack of my life by myself. So I'd have to say that was the worst experience of my life. Thanks!"

Pros: "We boarded early and arrived a LITTLE earlier than expected. That was nice. Overall the flight was OK."
Cons: "The "snacks" were less than impressive. And when the attendant, in her thoughtlessness, poured me half a cup (what is it, a 6oz cup?) I asked for more (at least the other half of my cup) and I got water... Gee, thanks. And they should really be more diligent about checking and re-checking the overhead compartments. One popped open on the return flight. And looking back I remember noticing that it didn't look flush with the rest. Thankfully no one was hurt."

Pros: "Plane wasted full."
Cons: "Nothing everthing well done."

Pros: "short flight... only 45 minutes. Small plane but comfortable"

Cons: "It would have been nice if the email for checking in explained exactly what it meant and whether or not online check in was mandatory. As someone new to flying, it was a bit confusing."

Pros: "Overall good flight"

Pros: "This one was late due to maintenance issues, but they beat the new take off time by 30 minutes and I had plenty of time for my connector"
Cons: "Being tall it is a little uncomfortable with head room in the restroom"

Pros: "The crew was simpatic and servicing"
Cons: "The in-flight systems did not work even in the USA. Too limited offert of free entertainment when it worked"

Pros: "Clean, roomy, not a packed flight. Great price and friendly crew!"

Cons: "No internet in the flight"

Pros: "The male flight attendant was not very attentive. He would serve me first and then lean over my food and drink to serve the guy on the window seat. I had to ask him every time if he could take away my glass and then my wrappers and then my...well everything. Many people from the main cabin came up front to use the first class bathroom, and he didn't stop them. He abruptly woke he up three times with his loud voice talking with passengers...with no regard of the sleeping passengers. He is more suited for the main cabin. He didn't offer any help when I was struggling to put my bag in the overhead bin. He watched as the young lady flight attendant struggled to open the plane door... I did not feel that the cost for first class was worth it. He never responded when I thanked him for each thing he did...nothing...not, "You're welcome" or "my pleasure." So, it was a first class disappointment."

Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Comfort and other services were among the best I've experienced ever flying."

Cons: ""Parked" on tarmac for 25 minutes waiting to leave LAX. Arrived half an hour late"

Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."

Pros: "thay we didn't crash"
Cons: "1. To didn't work 2. Give us pillows"

Pros: "Ss"
Cons: "Sd"

Pros: "Entertainment comfort crew food fligjt"
Cons: "Not 1 thing"

Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."

Cons: "It was cancelled"

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Missed this connection"

Pros: "Comfortable first class seats for a regional airline, although no food or entertainment. Flight attendants were great, very friendly and they checked up on us often. On time departure and early arrival. American Airlines has always been great for me. Will be back"
Cons: "No food in first class, but it was only a 2 hr flight on a regional"

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, no problems or hassles. Seat reclined and was reasonably comfortable. Left early, arrived even earlier."
Cons: "Crew was more robotic than human, which is bexoming a trend on AA. No smiles, no acknowledgment, just doing the job of handing out food and picking up trash. No personal touch whatsoever. Food was subpar for an AA flight, especially international. Entertainment system has many defects and problems, for example "search" is useless. Uninspiring and forgettable film choices as well. The knob to control air flow was broken which made it chilly. To finish as I started, a more engaged and pleasant crew could have made all the other things more palpable and acceptable. They were just too cold, like the temperature in the cabin and distant."

Cons: "No space! Glad I was sitting next to family! Seats were tight...no leg room...long flight!"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "I never felt like writing a review but I feel like I should let other families with little ones know. My wife, 2 year old son, and I was boarding at the gate and they couldn't scan my son's boarding pass. They quickly went over to the computer station and gave my son another pass. We went to our seats and found out someone else is in our 2year old seat. Apparently they gave the seat to someone else at the last second because up to the point when I printed our boarding passes at the kiosk, our seats were still together (and I paid $41/per seat extra to try to keep us together). The other customer was nice enough to switch with our son so were able to stay together at the last min so it goes to show AA priority and service."

Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"

Pros: "just Ok for everything."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and attentive."

Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."

Pros: "Direct Flight from LAX to RDU on a redeye."
Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hours at LAX. Boarded on time, waited at gate for 1.5 hours and then had to get off. During our delay waiting for a 1st Officer, the Captain times out. NO BACKUP CAPTAINS or 1st OFFICERS AT LAX? Then miraculously during our 3rd hour waiting for a Captain they discovered the 1st Officer was going to time out. So, rather than KNOW this while searching for a Captain, they waited for 3 hours and then had to find a 1st Officer to fill in. Result 2.5 more hours of delay. Even the Flight crew was in disbelief on this one. I think we should all get reimbursed and triple miles for this snafu. Not weather or mechanical - just poorly managed time -- BY A MAJOR AIRLINE - INEXCUSABLE!"

Pros: "The male server was great. The ice cream for dessert was magnificent."
Cons: "First class was awful- no drink service for far too long, didn't have my food order that I selected ahead of time, the female asian flight attendant was not friendly at all, the seat reclined at the back only there was nothing for your feet, the blankets were awful, and movie selection was mediocre at best."

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: "Great service and friendly stafg"
Cons: "Loved the yourt for breakfadt...rest of it was ok"

Pros: "Easy and customer service at lax was awesome and very helpful!!!"
Cons: "The 45 minute bag time that's it may or may not be able to go 45 mins within boarding ."

Pros: "Dunno"
Cons: "Dunno"

Pros: "Slept through the entire flight, ground crew got me from gate to seat ASAP."
Cons: "Everything was good, so no problems to report here!"

Pros: "Flight got cancelled"

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: "Becasue I was in boarding group 8, I was advised to again check my carry-on bag. When I boarded (almost the last person to do so), there was an empty overhead compartment directly across from my seat. I had to wait 30-40 minutes at the carousel to collect this carry-on bag. I could have just gone directly to my car as I had no other checked bags. Very poor service. I will avoid booking with American Airlines in the future."

Pros: "Entertainment on long flights is vast. Flight attendants are nice and are prompt with requests."
Cons: "Bags that are told will be planeside end up being sent to tne final destination and no tags are given to the riders to let them know beforehand. Workers at counters were very rude."

Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."

Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"

Pros: "I slept the whole way and we even landed a bit early. It was a great flight."
Cons: "No complaints!"

Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."

Pros: "Our 'lullaby flight' was not completely full, so that made things nice, but what really made our day after being tired from traveling and finally getting on this flight was the steward. I don't know his name, but he's most likely one of American Airline's most senior stewards. His grey hair did not stop him from being one of the most positive and funny people to lighten up a flight. Thank you!"

Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"

Pros: "Business seats comfortable."
Cons: "Crew was friendly. Not always professional."

Pros: "2 flight attendents reset the unit but to no avail."
Cons: "We could not resolve it."

Cons: "My luggage was damaged and I have yet to hear from an American Airlines representative after I was not ok with a replacement from a luggage company that did not reflect my current luggage brand. Being in the Customer Sevice industry I know this is unacceptable, I would never replace a damaged item with one that was not like the original or ask a customer to do so. I will not fly American Airlines any longer."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, great crew, lots of food & drink options, great screens with excellent selection of movies & games."
Cons: "Long flight. We did not realize that we needed to claim baggage and then re-check it at Japan Airlines for a domestic flight. Airport personnel were understanding and helpful, so no crisis."

Pros: "Crew made up time to get us in to Boston nearly on time."
Cons: "1 hour delay in LA without an explanation. 20 minute delay in Boston, on arrival, because the jet bridge did not fully extend to the plane."

Pros: "Flight on time."

Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."

Cons: "LATAM deboarded me from the flight after I had boarded. They claimed American had cancelled my reservation because they did not think I would make my connection. I ran in order to make it and then instead of offering me information on the next flight they left me stranded with instructions to find American. Terrible, terrible customer service. I will think twice before booking a LATAM flight again."

Cons: "The boarding was seemed unintelligent. Why would a passenger in a window seat have to wait until the other middle and aisle passengers board. I got on the plane and had to wait for the other two passengers get up and step into the aisle so I could take my window seat. I was in group 7 and apparently they were in a lower number group that was allowed to board before me."

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Pros: "Overall it was very comfortable and smooth flight."
Cons: "The airplane was looked new, clean and the seats were very comfortable."

Cons: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."

Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"

Pros: "Nothing. Flight was late, I was bumped out of my seats that I paid extra for. The seats we had wouldn't recline. Boarding was announced in 5 minutes so lines were formed and we boarded 35 minutes later as we had to wait for one extra cabin crew member. We got charged toe all our bags (see SWA). There was human waste in the bathroom."
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Surprising seat comfort in economy."

Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."
