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."

Cons: "The flight was delayed so I have to re-book my whole trip. I was being told first that I was going to make my connecting flight, and then rushed to the new gate due to terminal re-assigned, and then told that I won't make it to the connecting flight so I have to go to the re-booking counter. And then at the counter being told that I could have made it. Very confusing."

Cons: "complimentary ear plugs for when there are crying children"

Pros: "Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest"

Pros: "Nothing because the fly was delayed"
Cons: "The flight has to be on time"

Cons: "Boarding seems to always take longer than necessary. Why not board passengers in the back of the plane after special status boards?"

Pros: "Ice cream sundae was yummy. Good amount of entertainment options."

Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick and on time. Transfer in Phoenix was no problem. Luggage arrived OK."
Cons: "Seating is too small and too close to next rows. Unhappy with having to pay for seat assignments and checked bag while watching gate agents refuse to enforce overhead bag size limits."

Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable - period. I do not have any type of back problem but I was sore after that flight."

Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Less bumps"

Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours weeks before which made the return really inconvenient for my schedule. Then the flight was delayed on the day of the flight until the next day. I did not get to the hotel room until 3:30 AM- 3 hours sleep then back to airport only to have the flight delayed again."

Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"

Pros: "Seat was comfortable"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."

Cons: "No in flight service"

Cons: "Flight delay at every single step of the way Crew was great though"

Cons: "late departure"

Cons: "While my experience was excellent, I must acknowledge that the practice of charging significantly more for some seats is outrageous. I was happy with the (free) seats I had."

Pros: "Once we were finally on the plane everything felt comfortable and looked newish."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO! The flight was delayed by 7 hours. We were told different stories Time and Time again by the ground crew. Either the plane was on the way or it was turning back, or it had landed or was perpetually 20 mins from landing. At one point, they did slip and admit that they actually had no way of actually tracking the plane, so everything they told us had been wild guesses about what had actually been happening! When some passengers asked to speak with a manager, we were told that the manager was not accepting calls at that time. After hours and hour and hours of delays and lies, they finally found a plane, but we still had to wait an hour for a crew as the original crew was now over their time limit. Once we were airborne, the flight was smooth and the newly cobbled together crew was nice. Zero mention or promise of reparations for the massive delay. AGAIN, DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO!"

Cons: "Plane was hot, dinner was a sandwich that was still frozen and the attendants weren’t friendly."

Pros: "friendly crew, great service"

Pros: "Excellent passenger service. PSA consistency performs as best of regionals."

Cons: "Due to technical error my flight delayed and I missed my flight to Hyd from London. I was traveling on personal medical emergency and missed an important surgery of my mother."

Pros: "The flight was smooth sailing from the beginning to the end and the meal service was good."
Cons: "A little bit of turbulence during the final descent into the airport made it a bit uncomfortable."

Cons: "System resets & bright light bursts in our faces over and over. Also when cabin lights dimmed the blue lights on seats were not enough to light the way."

Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"

Pros: "We shopped price, this was the most affordable flight for us."
Cons: "Getting seat reservations should be easier and sooner."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"

Cons: "Old airplane, bad food"

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "Movies and did not feel squished. Never had so much food service on a flight before."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."

Pros: "There was an extra seat and they allowed me to move there. Superb entertainment!!"
Cons: "They guy behind me kept kicking my chair"

Pros: "extra leg room but I had to pay for it"
Cons: "This should only be used for important communications. And to not offer food on a 6 hour flight is horrible."

Pros: "New aircraft with good entertainment system. Did not crash."
Cons: "Very tight seat spacing in pitch and width. Screen did not tilt so even with the very minimal backrest recline viewing was not ideal. This was to "punish" me for not buying the various seating upcharges American tag onto the ticket price. It was a low cost ticket on a very convenient transatlantic flight from RDU, "Easyjet" pricing brings "Easyjet" seating. I have flow a lot, 3MM miles on UA alone, and this reminded me why AA did not get much of my business! I will have to revert to the "Continentalised" UA (another sore point!)."

Cons: "My seat was considered "Premium." The pull out table was dirty and broken. Was not able to use it for eating or holding a drink. Food was inedible. Plane was old so there were a few screens for the whole cabin. The screen was poorly located so unable to watch programs offered."

Pros: "The airplane was new and very spacious. Air hostess were very accommodating. The flight took off and landed on time. Food and snack quality was amazing. Entertainment options were plenty. Restrooms were clean and smelled fresh through the journey."
Cons: "Since my flight was connecting from London to New York we barely had a break even though we were suppose to have a 2.5 hour layover. As soon as we got off our first plane we were directed to American Airline security where they questioned me about my trip and what I did in Spain. Then I was directed to TSA where it took a long time to get through the lines. I got to my gate an hour before take off and they were already boarding. I didn't have a moment to take a bathroom break or grab a drink/snack. But again, this experience was not all that bad because all the positive notes listed above."

Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and flights were on time."
Cons: "Crew could have been a little more friendly and the planes were a bit dated...although I know AA is in the process of replacing their fleet."

Pros: "The only good thing about the flight is that it was nonstop."
Cons: "This four-hour flight had no movie and no seatback entertainment system. It didn't even offer SiriusXM to listen to. How old exactly was this plane?!"

Pros: "The flight had a delay of 4 hours in Philadelphia. I missed the appointment in Lisbon for which I was flying in the first place. Furthermore, I had purchased the ticket with the intent of flying with British Airways and found myself in a charter from American Airlines. I wish to be compensated for this mistake. Thank you"

Cons: "Boarded small plane too early Air conditioning did not work...sweated whole flight No beverage service seats too small for an adult, and I am only 5'-5""

Pros: "Check in Miami Stewards Miami Quito portion"
Cons: "Being 3 1/2 hours late from Quito to Miami Being delayed from Denver to Houston and switch to United to coach seats, they did give us coupons though, but after the fact . Luggage arriving late from Denver, customer service didn't have a clue were the luggage was. As we were leaving to come back next day the luggage, we saw it in a carrousel, and pick it up. Republic flight from New Orleans it's not worth it the business class, very poor service ."

Pros: "Flight was oversold so they upgraded us to first class at no charge"

Pros: "The professionalism of the pilots in handling the extremely rough weather during the flight"
Cons: "The meal of a turkey sandwich on dry bread was forgettable . They are co - shared with Qantas and could learn a lot about providing a decent meal on a long expensive flight"

Pros: "Crew was lovely"
Cons: "1 hour late"

Pros: "Snacks"
Cons: "They wouldn't allow me to check my bag at the main gate so I had to go through security and check it at the boarding gate. Souvenirs were confiscated because the bag couldn't be check sooner. Then they tagged my bag with the wrong name and destination. It was 48 hours later before I got my bag."

Pros: "Kayak did not refund or have an option to exchange my ticket for a later time in the year."
Cons: "My tickets were 415.00 and I wanted to change the dates and couldn't since I bought from a third party I had to pay an extra 400."

Pros: "Comfort"
