Cons: "No food or beverage service while in COVID mood. Pilates and flight crews were inconsistent with using masks. However overhead announcements by AA constantly stated that face mask were required and that the could prevent you from traveling with AA."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Denver airport boarding crew was really Good. Flight attendants not so much. I’m sure they were as tired as the clients after the 4 hour delay"
Cons: "Better communication and resolve Maintenance issues or change the aircraft sooner. Which is what finally happened. Delay started in L.A."

Pros: "I got to Miami safely"
Cons: "The communication regarding delays, flight attendants with manners and decent attitudes, preparation for flight before passengers boarded. The flight attended that made announcements needs to be CANCELLED. Her attitude was repulsive. Do better sweetheart."

Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."
Cons: "You have to pay for seats to sit with your travel partner."

Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Free BBQ DINNER"

Pros: "The seat was super Uncomfortable. Squished Middle seat that I paid $37 for (w/Priority boarding, see below). What a ripoff. The seat was designed specifically to torture passengers, of this I am certain."
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade that included "Priority Boarding", For AA, that meant Group 5 out of 9. WTF?? Clearly Bait and Switch - there's a big placard at every AA boarding gate that states: Priority Boarding 1-4 (to the Left) and "Main Boarding" 5-9 (to the Right). Fraudulent, clearly."

Cons: "They hate kids"

Cons: "How about departing on time! Almost 3 hours after our advertised departure time is ridiculous!"

Cons: "Flight delayed twice and then had to wait on runway for take off"

Pros: "Comfortable seats & fast boarding"

Cons: "I was in business class. The seat in front me magazine holder was stretched out and constantly hit me in the knee."

Pros: "Crew was really great!"
Cons: "My bag never left Chicago so I had to wait a day to get that"

Pros: "On times and good service - half-empty plane."

Pros: "Great film selection. Wonderful food and drinks. Airline staff quickly arranged for us to catch two more flights when there was a delay."
Cons: "There was a long delay and we missed our connection. We were re-routed so in total we had four flights in 24 hours, which was exhausting."

Cons: "Notify us sooner about the 2 hour delay. Had to know there was not a pilot available."

Pros: "service was consistent"
Cons: "Plane was unusually hot"

Pros: "Left on time"

Pros: "?"
Cons: "the fact they changed my schedule and had to come in earlier customer service was awful and my luggage came back dirty and the best response was that the belts are dirty and i can expect wear and tear. not only that i had to book myself an earlier trip to pay the standby fee so i can leave the same time my brother left tsa screening had us wait 20 min before we move in the line for the fact no worker was there but one guy and i was the last person to board the plane after almost missing closing gates my expierence was awful and disrespectful"

Cons: "The delay of 1 hour inside the aircraft and at the end before they closed the doors 3 new passengers came in and it appeared that the aircraft was waiting for these passengers"

Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation. That kind of upset me. Just a short explanation would be fine."

Pros: "Timeliness and friendly staff. Arrived before scheduled time..."

Pros: "Our flight attendant was delightful. Nothing special with a flight, as long as its was on time."

Pros: "It was on time, no delays"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and efficient. Everything was on time."
Cons: "Cramped seats with zero leg room."

Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and organized"
Cons: "No face masks or ear protection made sleep difficult"

Cons: "No entertainment. Everything got somehow disconnect d. No one could reboot it and there was no explanation or concessions given. The staff were not forthcoming. The flight also took incredibly long to land. The landing was very bumpy like the plane slammed into the concrete."

Pros: "Great service. The staff was great."

Pros: "They booked us on the next plane after missing our connection. Giles was very helpful!!"
Cons: "Booked our connecting flight too close. We had to wait for a bus to take us to our new terminal and then security took a long time."

Pros: "I am happy to have made it to my final destination."
Cons: "This was a disappointing experience to say the very least. The boarding process in Quito was chaotic to say the least. The AA staff did not make an effort to maintain any kind of order. My husband and I are both enrolled in the AA frequent flyer program and had at least 6 people cut in front of us while on-line. When we finally approached the AA representative, Dayana Gómez, She was rude and not helpful. Our seats on the UIO-Dallas flight did not even recline. We sat completely upright for the duration of the 6 hour overnight night flight into Dallas."

Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"

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

Pros: "The meals were pretty decent and I loved that I was given chocolates during the flight."

Pros: "Flight was great. Landed a few mins early"
Cons: "Not much selection of snacks. No tv"

Pros: "We were on time. Traveled safely. Uneventful."
Cons: "Comfort is in the past... seats are uncomfortable. No space. we are always crammed in like sardines. Seats were in poor condition and did not appear clean. Video equipment at my seat did not work. Did not seem to have enough crew. . . took forever to get the limited service - - crew seemed complacent - no enjoyment in their jobs - doing what they always do. Having enjoyed five years with Delta - I enjoyed my job and the people. No one seems to like their job now. Shame. Takes even more fun out of flying these days. It's a job - more people - more coffee - more sodas.... Don't LIKE it. . . give someone else the chance to fill that position. Flying Should be Fun. . . it's special!! every time."

Pros: "Previous flight was awful but this flight was good. Everything was new and felt like first class."
Cons: "Remodeling old plans if not getting new ones"

Cons: "The check in process took to long. In line more than an hour."

Cons: "I WAS NOT ALLOWED TO BOARD MY FLIGHT BECAUSE I WAS ONL,Y 19 MINUTES EARLY RATHER THAN 20 MINUTES EARLY FOR CHECK-IN. SOUTHWEST WOULD NEVER BLOCK A PAYING PASSENGER BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T CHECK IN 20 MINUTES EARLY. I PAID $600 FOR THAT FLIGHT AND WATCHED IT SIT ON THE RUNWAY WHILE I WAS BLOCKED FROM BOARDING. IT WAS 20 FEET AWAY FROM ME IN THIS TINY AIRPORT. MY CO-WORKER WAS ABLE TO GET ON, BUT I WAS A COUPLE OF STEPS BEHIND BECAUSE OF RETURNING THE RENTIAL CAR."

Cons: "Baggage was lost!!!!!"

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, new plane"

Pros: "After having AA 776 cancelled due to an East Coast snow storm, we were rebooked and flew a day later on AA 669 which operated safely and on time."
Cons: "Seats on Airbus 321 in row 4 do not recline fully; no power outlets at seats; pilots were uninformative with any scenic details during flight, merely providing the usual departure and arrival information in a very impersonal manner."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Being late, i already have long wait at the airport"

Pros: "American got it right this time. Departing on time with a crew that seemed well qualified."

Pros: "The flights were smooth and easy."
Cons: "Due to the crew being late, my second flight was delayed and hour and a half."

Pros: "Normal flight"
Cons: "The flight was ,the plane was small. And I was charged for my baggage when I used my card"
