Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Great service and comfortable; well sanitized."

Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "All good with me"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "There were no power ports on this flight."
Pros: "Clean. Rough landing- felt like slamming on the breaks too hard"
Pros: "On time flight, efficient, friendly crew. Clean plane."
Cons: "I was told that 30 minutes is plenty of time to make a connection at DCA. However in order to make a connection there you need to take a bus across the tarmac. The bus sat on the tarmac loading up with way too many people for 10+ min… Almost missed our connection"
Cons: "The flight was delayed which caused us to miss our flight in London our family was delayed for 12 hours"
Pros: "Nothing n"
Cons: "Again - door broken on connecting flight as was the first leg. American needs to better maintain their planes. This is ridiculous"
Pros: "Left on time and arrived early"
Cons: "The booking process. Went through a third party (ka$@k) and at the last minute was transferred to a cheap aggregator I had never heard of. Needless to say customer service was a joke. Plain fraud."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Two hour delay including 20 minutes to get flight data because on board computer not functioning. Usual knee in chest seats on commuter jet."
Cons: "We had a very rough landing into Fort Lauderdale on 3/29/19. Pretty sure we had a new pilot. It felt like she was going too fast and didn't slow the plane down enough as we were descending d threw on the brakes feeling like the plane wasn't going to stop. Very scary! Return flight was much better."
Cons: "The crew seemed annoyed and not into it."
Pros: "Delays. Standbys. Cancellations. No explanations provided."
Cons: "EXPLANATIONS!!! Don’t bump me from a flight and not explain why!"
Pros: "The Flight Crew was amazing. They accommodated us very well. We were two toddlers, a pregnant mother and a handicapped senior."
Cons: "The counter representatives were terrible. They discriminated us & forced us to check our stroller at the counter & not at the gate. Even though another family had the exact same stroller & was permitted to enter with their stroller. We were two toddlers, a pregnant mother and a handicapped senior."
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
Cons: "My A/A flight, which was scheduled to get in after midnight, was delayed by over an hour with multiple gate changes."
Pros: "They seem to have more time for the passengers then other airlines do"
Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."
Pros: "Flying internationally is civilized even in coach. There is more legroom, the food and drink carts come by several times, and there are blankets and pillows for everyone. I think all cross country non stop domestic US flights should have the same coach amenities as trans Atlantic flights."
Cons: "The seats aren’t the comfiest on the 757. They are kind of stiff. But there is more legroom on international flights."
Pros: "Smootm and in early."

Cons: "Delayed over two hrs due to mech. Known long befire scheduled departure according to pilot. Did not know why alt plane was not provided sooner! Not best airline as claimed!"
Cons: "Had to wait for pilot coming from Mexico flight for 20 mins after everyone boarded"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "It was 3 hours delayed and we ended up with an aircraft that was in the hanger. The economy seats were really tight, more suitable for a 2-3 hour domestic flight, not for a transoceanic 7 hour flight. I paid $81 for my seat since AA did not let me choose my seat. $81 for a seat that was really uncomfortable and with very limited leg room. I felt ripped off. There were common screens as entertainment instead of individual ones, very obsolete. This will be the last AA flight I will take."
Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Cons: "Massive delay. Waited over 4 hours to get on plane and more wait time on the tarmac. Unhappy flight attendants"

Cons: "The food was okay."
Cons: "Did not get to finish the movie I was watching on my first flight and movies were not offered on this flight."
Cons: "Several consecutive issues delayed our start, then had a weather hold before we could descend. VERY crowded, got stuck with a window seat with a very large man next to me--better than B or D, at least."
Cons: "Seeing as this flight was cancelled and we had to wait as two elderly people until 3pm the next day to get another flight and American Airlines would not compensate in anyway. I would say that we will never fly American Airlines again nor will my family. This was not the only delay or cancellation because of American either. We spent 48 hours traveling because of delays and cancellations and still American would do nothing for us. I'm 66 and my husband is 72 (who also has had back surgery for five slipped discs) and we had to sleep on concrete floors and had very limited money to buy food. It was by far the worst experience of my life and I would encourage everyone to not travel with them."
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"
Pros: "Wasn't over booked"
Cons: "No entertainment no offer to up grade"
Cons: "When I noticed on the itinerary that the layover only gave me 35 minutes I knew it would be a problem. I missed my flight and never got to Pensacola . AA staff were not very Empathetic. It seems to happen often. I'm in a hotel and praying that my flight leaves today."
