Cons: "After missing all our other connections, our luggage was delayed for hours, we were only given $12 each for meal vouchers for an entire day of layover, we were not given the upgrade for the seats we originally paid for (nor seats together) only promised refunds. The line for service was 2 hours."

Pros: "Crew, check in crew and captain keeping us informed about flight changes. Leg room."
Pros: "The crew were fine, not their fault for sure."
Cons: "5 hour delay. That about says it all. All due to late flight crew from weather elsewhere, having them being taken offline because of long hours, trying to find new people, having a jetway break. Having to sit on a plane in the terminal for more than an hour with no air and stifling heat, taken off the plane and back on. All for a non-stop flight from Boston to LA. Definitely not fun."
Cons: "Nonoption for wireless headphones to connect via Bluetooth."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean. Boarding went well and staff nice on boarding. Service was smooth though food not great but then it is airplane food. The morning continental food was nicely packaged and good."
Cons: "The plane boarded and left gate a little late but had a maintenance issue with one of its doors so plane had to return to gate. We finally got off the ground almost three hours late but staff tried to be as helpful as possible though they didn’t know much. It was good the passengers seemed fairly patient and accepting. The horror was at the airport in Venice where it took over two hours in very long line just to get through passport check."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed by 4.5 hours. Then when we finally landed, we had to wait nearly 2 hours on the tarmac before we taxied to the gate. American kept us in the dark about what was happening -- I might have made different plans if I had known what was going on."
Cons: "Seats are too narrow"
Pros: "Fast booking"
Cons: "my flight was cancelled. I got a call earlier today that I was rebooked to an earlier flight. I had to rush out of the hotel to return the car. Flight was delayed for another hour."
Pros: "Flight crew offered me compensatory AA aadvantage miles for screen not working"
Cons: "Screen did not work on video display. As always, seat was terribly uncomfortable. Felt like I was sitting on a wooden playground bench."

Cons: "Flight service was ok"
Cons: "We had to wait almost two hrs on the plane before take off."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "I’m never comfortable in airplane seats"
Cons: "American Airlines flying out of DCA is highly disorganized. I will look to fly to Washington-Dulles next time, or just avoid American Airlines altogether."
Cons: "Both to and from Hawaii, they ran out of food before they made it to us. It was bad enough that they had one cart for the entire plane. It took 90 minutes from the time they began serving until they got to us in row 34, but they ran out of food at row 31. The flight attendant just shrugged and said, "They do that to us all the time, sorry.""
Pros: "Normally a kayak super fan"
Cons: "Missed first leg of a return flight to london. Was given no options for rebook and my RETURN flight was also cancelled. Iberdola flight operated by American, ticketed by airfare.com. I've never heard of a product where you have to consume one piece in order to be allowed to consume the other you already bought. Legal basis seems very suspect. Do not fly with airfare.com and be wary of kayak vendors unfortunately."
Pros: "Not muchi"
Cons: "I ordered a gluten free dinner for my husband and even checked on I two days before and they didn’t have it. He basically had no dinner"
Pros: "Smooth flight and on time."
Cons: "Small plane. Even small carry-ons had to be gate checked"
Cons: "When I finally got a seat on the plane, it was fine. The lady at the counter was very helpful!! She helped me get on a flight since LATAM had changed my flight until the next day."
Cons: "Nothing was together, missed connection. Had to buy a hotel in Phoenix"
Cons: "Baggage claim process way too long. Took 1hr to get off plane."
Pros: "Good Airplane"

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: "Flt time!"
Cons: "Boarding announcer was rude"
Cons: "We lost our connection to Jacksonville"
Pros: "The flight was very good. Boarding was good, shorter flight, smooth, landed and off we were."
Cons: "Seating still needs a little more padding for comfort. Delta airlines has a screen on every seat and you can see where you are and how far you have gone and so on. That would be nice. It was very difficult to hear what the pilot said when he spoke to say hello and whatever else he said. Entertainment? There wasn't any on this flight"
Pros: "plenty of leg room. very little turbulence. fight staff was very professional. staff was very responsive to assist me in finding my passport which I had left on the plane after I had left the plane and gotten to my connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't pleased with the snacks. I recommend changing to different snack options; perhaps fruit snacks or nuts."
Pros: "Our flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled And rescheduled and we were not notified. We missed our flight. The next flight was the following day. We missed a day of vacation and $500 a day hotel fees. We felt we should be reimbursed for our flight but the person we talked to wasn't too helpful."
Pros: "They flew us back to Charlotte in good time."
Cons: "Prior to take off as the plane backed away from the ramp, we heard a noise for several minutes from under the plane. It sounded like something with the wheels. Kinda unnerving. Just prior to taxiing the plane stopped, the pilot announced a technical difficulty. They had to reboot one system to correct it. We heard more wheel noise. Almost like the doors over the wheels were stuck. Again kinda unnerving. Once airborne everything was smooth."
Pros: "Very quick curbside check-in. TSA check went quickly and gate was easy to get to."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Cons: "Took my bag for no reason, I flew there with it."
Pros: "Same as above "loved everything" excellent flight!!!"
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "Plane on time."
Cons: "Small commuter jet. Very cramped."
Cons: "Having to pay $50 to check bags when if I had been able to to Ak Air check in they would have been free"
Cons: "seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "on time..."
