Pros: "Very comfortable, affordable, nice staff! On time. Will fly AA again."
Pros: "Smooth Travel! AA is great"
Cons: "The trip is still ongoing 6 hours after it was to have been over and we still have a couple more hours to go. I understand that things happen, but most of the problems today seem to have been preventable. First, our plane in Lihue was delayed for over 3 hours because they could not get a working fuel truck to fill the plane. Three hours? This caused us to miss our connection in LA, although just barely. We had to wait onboard so that we could use the same gate that our outgoing plane was departing from. If we had just been sent to a different gate we. Oils have made our original flight. So, they put us on a flight to Chicago because there were no more flights to Minneapolis. Then, once in Chicago the incoming plane was delayed and we sat on the tarmac for 40 minutes before deplaning. Then after an hour delay we were told the crew was on the ground and we were boarded. Sat in the plane for another hour, then we’re told we were still waiting for crew members that were delayed so we deplaned again. Another 90 minutes past and we got back on the plane and sat for another 45 minutes. We are finally pulling away from the gate. Hallelujah!"
Pros: "Reliable and efficient."
Cons: "It took a while for the luggage to be delivered to the claim area, but it was very late in the day so I guess it is to be expected."
Cons: "Made me check my carry-on because they claimed the bones were full and they weren't. Not even close."
Cons: "New cheap fare is honestly offensive trash."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and provided good service."
Cons: "Seats are very small. Boarding process could be improved. Seems some people board out of sequence and it screws up the process of stowing luggage and getting to your assigned seat. These same people bring in large over sized bags that will not fit in the above compartment or underneath the seat. Charging these individuals for these violations would deter them from engaging in this behavior. You might also want to add to your instructions how to disembark the plane, some individuals think their schedule is more important and rush up the isle in front of others who are trying to get their carry on luggage from the overhead compartment. Losers!!"
Cons: "I find this fairly serious! All people were boarded on the plane In a timely manor. We were then informed that one flight attendant had not made to the flight and we were to wait until the flight attendant arrived. We waited over 20 minutes for the employee to arrive to work rather late. This put out over 200 people for one irresponsible employee. In my business that employee would of been fired unless there was a very serious reason. So a full plane of passengers were inconvienced as well as many people that were helping the passengers what maybe 300 + for one employee! Doesn't make sense!"
Cons: "it was an hour late"
Pros: "Actually, I like that it was late because my first flight arrived late. The flight overall was very quick and smooth."
Cons: "The seats were covered in crumbs from the previous flight, but that's probably because of the hurry to get passengers on to the next flight because the plane was late."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Cons: "The handle for the window shade was torn off"
Pros: "My flight experience with Etihad Airway was fantastic. I will recommend anyone to flight with Etihad. Thank you for your great service Etihad crews. I will flight with you again soon."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"
Cons: "Female attendant on 11/22 mpls>Dallas-Fort was very rude."
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation."
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."
Pros: "More spacious seating."
Cons: "All ofd the overhead bin carry on luggage left no room atg all by the time we boarded So hence the leg room was very crowded. When will the airlines stop the ridiculous over use and abuse of carry on unchecked bags?"
Pros: "Flight was on time, and arrived about 1/2 hour early into MPS!!"
Pros: "Love the new entertainment on your own phone"
Cons: "Boarding took forever due to people's luggage in the overhead."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Pros: "Uneventful, except for a malfunctioning getaway in MSP which caused a very brief delay."
Pros: "Hospitality, service, flight, and crew!"
Cons: "Budget Rental, OMG 55 min wait in the parking lot before some would check myself and several other renters. NEVER use budget again. Its not that they were understaffed. I saw Budget employees standing around doing nothing. On a side note the inside of the car was coated with a white cleaning solution, windows were dirty, and windshield fluid was empty."
Cons: "It was freezing."
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight"
Cons: "Requested for wheelchair assistance but none provided?!!"
Pros: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."
Cons: "Two hour delay due to mechanical issue was a showstopper."
Cons: "My flight was canceled."
Cons: "A passenger seated next to me threw up all over me as we landed. We were seated towards the back, we should of been let out first because when I say threw up, I mean he THREW UP!! And the hosts looked less than pleased and just handed us paper towels to clean it up. Just not very friendly."
Cons: "Same as above but I missed a whole day with my relatives at the lake :("
Pros: "We left on time and arrived right on schedule. No problems or issues."
Cons: "I had a $200.00 fee to change my flight by 12 hours."
Pros: "Flight attendant was amazing!!!!!!!"
Cons: "Too much chaos at counter to board planes, 2 flights scheduled at same gate and my flight was 1hr 30min delayed because of it. Other customers missed flight etc... Admin could have worked better with these upset customers"
