90 min delay for a food cart that needed to be fixed.
The crew was great, given the situation—we were delayed because the cargo door wouldn’t lock. Why wasn’t the plane checked before we boarded the 777-200? That’s a lot of people to be left sitting there, especially during Covid .
The boarding was a mess with the ground personal! Twice in a role transit in Narita both confusing, delays,, and many passengers were upset! They could do a much better job! All we saw are the girls busy running around but accomplish nothing!
It was canceled twice. To the point I couldn't go on my trip.
The Wi-Fi didn't work at all. It was extremely frustrating.
I've experienced friendlier flight crews, but they weren't rude or bad by any means. I just chalk it up to being the end of the day.
Flight attendants were pleasant especially considering the flight was full. Charger in my seat was inoperable and no entertainment available.
Pros: "The seat seemed broken. The main issue was that all shades were down. I thought when we took off and landed , window shades were supposed to be up? I felt like I was in a dark tunnel with shades down and lights the entire flight out and it was mid-afternoon."
Pros: "Flight crew were nice"
Cons: "More spacing between people"
Pros: "Ended up with a row to myself since flight wasn't full and people were able to move to different seats to provide for social distancing."
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: "The crew was great and I really appreciate how they accommodated a family with 4 young children"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and friendly."
Cons: "The crew announced that there was limited food options on the flight (low supply). When a flight is 5 hours long, an adequate amount of food options should be available. Hand towels and toilet paper ran out during flight."
Pros: "Pilot was very careful went around the storm that we could see from out flight nicely got us home safely. Great job."
Cons: "Even though I had a priority boarding I was told that I was suppose to stay with group 5. As a BA silver traveller I didn’t get the boarding priority."
Pros: "Desk attendant was very kind, but clearly had no idea what to tell us."
Cons: "See previous flight post, another delay for mechanical issues, another round of poor communication."
Pros: "Everything was very smooth and pleasant overall."
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after boarding because there was some minor mechanical issue on the plane. Also, my video screen didn’t work so I had no way to access the in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Average but what we’ve come to expect from american airline companies"
Pros: "Things went as they should have got a 2 hour flight."
Cons: "The inside of the plane around the air vents definitely could use some cleaning."
Pros: "AA was great, the only issues we had was 100s of screaming babies and rude people that cut the line....Not much AA can do about that."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and I missed my connecting flight, causing me to be much further delayed coming home. Spent all today miserably tired at work. I also sat in front of a very obnoxious man who was very loud and no body was telling him anything about video chatting on his speaker phone during take off."
Pros: "Food, cleanliness"
Cons: "All the different prices for seats. I think it is a stupid system. Miss the good old days of air travel."
Pros: "Everything was very adequate, nothing special about this flight."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed about 35 minutes just due to traffic on the runway. Out of all the flights on our international trip, the only issues we experienced were with American airports. You would think an issue like this would be readily solved by foreplanning, but instead we sat on the tarmac just waiting for our turn to take off. Some form of entertainment on the plane would've been nice. Or at least a place to charge electronics. Our bags arrived at our destination before we did, and although I immediately received a text alerting me to this fact, I was dismayed to find out they were in an entirely different terminal of the DFW airport. After 24 hours of travel and very little sleep, instead of just walking off the plane and retrieving our bags, our group of 20 weary souls had to first determine where our luggage was, catch a bus to a different terminal ( because of the size of our group we couldn't all fit on the first bus, so had to wait for the second bus), and then track down our bags. American Airlines did absolutely nothing to help make this experience any easier for us. Five of our party were in wheelchairs due to various levels of exhaustion or ailment, and all we were told is "I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do." This little adventure delayed us about an hour."
Cons: "Delayed by nearly 2 hours, missed connecting flight"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and they next flight left 5min early?! WTF! We missed the flight by 3min. 10 other people missed the flight too. Now our whole day is blown waiting nearly 6hrs for next flight."
Pros: "The onboard entertainment has definitely improved. Nice to see how organize is the boarding process when compare to other local airlines."
Cons: "I was seating in the front of the plane were the seating should be better. The seat reclined minimum. Also, had the had luck to travel next to an amazing mother who was traveling with two small kinds and a dog. Brave woman but nasty flight for me. Need to improve the meals on the international flights. Too mediocre."
Pros: "Spacious aircraft for a relatively short flight. I usually take a smaller aircraft that requires us to check our luggage. I'm reconsidering where I will have layovers now."
Pros: "Quickness of flight once up in the air"
Cons: "Getting stuck at gate waiting for air traffic control to find/make the flight a new flight plan"
Pros: "They were able to reschedule to another airline"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Pros: "Free drinks!!!"
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "Entertainment is rather limited."
Pros: "I was in a seat in coach that was appalling. (28C?), one row behind the exit row seating. I am only 5' 8" but could not cross my legs. The guy to my left was KNITTING, so was constantly jogging my arm which I carefully had kept inside the armrest on my side. I will avoid flying in a BA 747 in future. Even Business is awful on those jets. I flew in Business once, and thought the head to tail layout was the worst I have experienced. I pulled down the joint divider and thought the person in the next bed was dead, he was lying there with his arms crossed over his chest! It's time to update the 747's or retire them."
Cons: "The pathetic little 4.5" times 3.5" screen in the seatback was a joke in today's environment."
Pros: "Electrical outlets."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online"
Pros: "I liked that there were no stops."
Cons: "I had an instant panic attack when our flight was delayed because a box cutter was found under a seat on the flight that just arrived. I get honesty, but I was seriously reconsidering getting on the plane, because what if they missed something? I was working out in my head what would happen to our pets if we died on this flight, because we don't have a will yet."
Pros: "I loved how there were screens to pass the time with. I watched a movie the whole way back home and it really made the ride smooth and enjoyable. There were some great movie selections."
Cons: "I had trouble choosing one movie. Too many good movies."
Pros: "That it went smooth and had room on the flight. Crew was good."
Cons: "Need more than just pretzels on the plane to give out"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."
Pros: "Please put n/a as an option. There was no entertainment for a flight lasting a little over an hour."
Pros: "The fact I made the flight"
Cons: "Nearly missing the flight that my luggage did not arrive with me that I had to go back to airport 6 hours later to get it!!!!!"
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
Cons: "Cancelled flight, not notified in timely manner. Delayed Five hours due to be placed on connecting flights instead of a direct flight which is what I paid for."
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "We didn't take off on time so I was in anxiety about catching my next flight out of ORD."
