Our flights were on time in both directions. I loved having the American Airlines app to get notifications to check in and alert me of gate changes.
Cons: "Flight was delayed several hours due to an issue with the plane. Didn't get to our destination until close to 2am."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "Crew was professional and accommodating, everything went smooth and quickly"
Pros: "The was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty unfriendly."
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow and we were director the wrong carousel."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Crew (one member in particular) was rather short and rude to passengers who may have been unaware about the device holders on the back of seats. These are new for some. Use it as a teachable moment."
Cons: "5 hour delay including multiple gate changes, being pulled off the runway and poor communication"
Cons: "I will never, ever book with Kayak again"
Pros: "Busy but kind stewardesses"
Cons: "Please offer another snack option besides carboard flavored pretzels."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Grabbed me a blanket. Did not mind the small plane."
Cons: "Bumpy ride."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours with little communication from staff as to why, gate was changed to a gate across the airport."
Cons: "Condescending staff, lackadaisical crew, pitiful excuses of why we were delayed."
Cons: "MY LUGGAGE GOT TRANSFERED TO CHICAGO INSTEAD OF MINNEAPOLIS IN WASHINGTON"
Pros: "On time, not completely full, good staff at gate & on plane"
Cons: "All good."
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "short flight, crew was nice"
Cons: "left 40 min late due to a communication error deciding what crew would work the plane. didn’t find out why the flight was delayed until airborne."
Pros: "Very comfortable, affordable, nice staff! On time. Will fly AA again."
Cons: "The desk people were aggressively unhelpful when I asked for advice on getting a jacket back that I had left my previous flight (less than an hour earlier). They treated me with derision and ridicule because my previous flight was with a different airline, an airline that is closely enough associated with American that they booked me on an American flight. It should have been possible to at least talk to someone that could address my situation but now I'm stuck with the likely loss of something important to me and a strong dislike of American airlines. I'm probably just salty because it happened yesterday though. I'll get over the jacket eventually and probably fly with American again. But I will always resent them."
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: "Crew; snacks are okay, but could be better."
Cons: "Coffee is always burnt; overhead compartments too small; too little space for legs."
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."
Pros: "Perfect quiet comfy flight"
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!"
Pros: "I really like having the ability to upgrade to a more roomy seat the most. I am 6 foot 1in and leg room is so very important to me when i fly, it the difference between a good experience and a great experience. For just a few more dollars i was able to enjoy a great flight."
Cons: "I don't like not having the movies to watch on the back of the seats, although i do understand the cost cutting reasons. It's not a problem, just saying."
Pros: "I found this flight to be very efficient and the crew very professional and friendly. After a previous 15 hour flight I was very tired and this flight was a welcome ending to my journey."
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
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: "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: "The in-flight snack and the flight attendants on the flight were great."
Cons: "I tried to standby for an earlier flight on a first class ticket but I was told that's almost impossible as people waiting for upgrades have priority over me, so they may be able to get me a seat but in Economy. So, AA has no problem having a First Class ticketed passenger traveling in Economy and ticketed Economy passengers flying in First Class. Well, I do have a problem with that and didn't stand for it."
Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"
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: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "Flight was on time, and arrived about 1/2 hour early into MPS!!"
Pros: "Uneventful, except for a malfunctioning getaway in MSP which caused a very brief delay."
Pros: "Hospitality, service, flight, and crew!"
Pros: "Enjoyed the flight"
Pros: "Did not travel from Phillies to Minneapolis. Due to change in program."
Pros: "The boarding process was simple. We left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "The flight was absolutely freezing and the air was incredibly dry."
