Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "Most of the crew were great. Responded to requests promptly. Wifi and movies I could watch on my phone."
Cons: "Seating was tight and my set back was broken. Individual screens for movies."
Cons: "First flight delayed for mechanical. Put on another flight. About to take off and ground for two hrs on the tarmac. No refreshments offered on either. The only thing they did was tell us we had the right to de board after sitting in silence for 1.5 hrs. I wish I could say this is not the norm for American Airlines but they are 5/6 in the past two months for being late and having mechanical issues"
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."
Pros: "Non-stop flight and arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "No individual entertainment in seat backs and the common system wasn’t working. But, since it was an overnight flight it wasn’t that disappointing"
Cons: "Smoke in cabin, has to return to Houston. Then they never transferred our luggage as promised."
Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"
Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."
Cons: "Not get delayed. Don’t make me check a bag that clearly isn’t oversized"
Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."
Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."
Cons: "Snacks, non usable Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Pros: "Flight got me home safely. Flight was delayed gor hours due to weather. Crew was good. Short flight so no food/beverages or entertainment."
Pros: "Great crew cabin and excellent service at the checking area"
Pros: "Largely unremarkable flight out of LIM."
Cons: "B767-300 used for LIM-MIA was exceptionally old with overhead monitors for inflight entertainment. Headphones not given until 20+ minutes into the only movie (the rest of the programming was stupid TV shows/profiles)."
Pros: "Flight departed on time. Meal was hot and tasty. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Insufficient arm/legroom. Limited selection of interesting movies."
Pros: "I didn’t like it. I am still here and I hope i can fly back to ho chi minh without extra pay."
Cons: "Delay, pay extra money for different fly."

Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Extremely nice and helpful lady at Philadelphia airport self-service kiosks sorted seating and frequent flyer number out for me, I noticed she really was helping everyone who was working on their tickets and I was completely impressed. The cabin crew and pilots were very professional as well."
Cons: "There were one or two staff members phoning it in but even they were basically pleasant to deal with. Overall I'd definitely fly American again. It reminded me of the simplicity and professionalism of flying in the early 90s."
Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."
Cons: "Very cold airplane"
Cons: "There were no available snacks and drinks between meals in a long international flight. In other airlines, they have continous supplies of snacks and drinks at the food area for passengers to enjoy at their leisure."
Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."
Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."

Cons: "Bought a seat that was explained as not having another passenger on either side, but it was just two seats in a row."
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "Flight attendets were great, friendly, helpful, made me feel very welcoming, it made such a great experience. Thank you."
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Pros: "I will only book a flight on a 777. The wifi and movies are a great perk!!!"
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Cons: "Food was expensive and not well put together."
Pros: "The flight attendant was nice. That's all!"
Cons: "The value of first class in relation to how much more it costs is way out of proportion. It's not worth the extra money. Again, why even ask about entertainment? Over a four hour flight with no movie or music unless provided by yourself is complete and utter bullshit. Again, the available free wifi is bullshit."
Pros: "Boarding was pleasant, flight attendant was very nice. Served several snacks and choice of drinks."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."
Pros: "No complaints. No food or entertainment to rate the flight on, but sleeping was good and the book I brought from home filled the time."
Pros: "The crew was nice enough , app updates are nice"
Cons: "To many technical issues with this airline , everytime for the last 2 years there's a mechanical problem or issue with a plane blocking runway . Honestly I've never been on time with an American Airlines flight . I could have taken a bus and gotten to my destination faster, communication is poor , had to walk from terminal 4 to 6 because they have gates at both but didn't post the correct terminal to my ticket , so I walked from 4 to 6 ... Then the delay made me walk back to 4 because of a gate change . Then we waited on the plane for another half hour . All in all its not really the staff but more so the actual operation of the airline that I'm not willing to work with anymore ."
