Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The plane had several problems mechanically. After we boarded we spent another hour waiting for the problems to be repaired. It added an extra hour to sitting."
Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Lots on in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Nothing, I pretty much just slept the whole time."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Cons: "Four and a half hours on board and just a cookie? Really!?"
Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"
Cons: "I got to Moscow, SVO. I didn't receive my bag. This sucks."
Pros: "The employees were nice. That's about it for positive words."
Cons: "As we were a few minutes from our scheduled boarding, the flight was canceled. The reason we were given was the weather, but the weather was fine in Chicago and it was fine in New York. No other flights were canceled, so the weather excuse didn't hold up. They wouldn't put me on another flight that day, so I ended up leaving the next morning on the first flight out but I was still late for work. They didn't seem to be very accommodating or apologetic and I didn't even offer compensation to those who had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight out. C'mon AA. Step it up! I would think that if you cancel a flight, you should help your customers get home the same day. Do whatever you can. I don't think you did whatever you could for most of us on that flight."
Pros: "the crew went out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible very nice"
Cons: "No wifi, no personal TVs"
Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Bad organization during boarding"
Pros: "Crew was excellent."
Cons: "The connection in Chicago was 3 HOURS late with several gate changes. People on the desk were rude and never explained what was wrong. They didn't even announce the gate. change. I got it from Kayak."
Pros: "Overall the flight was good, on time"
Cons: "Nothing at this stage"
Pros: "The flight was a one way to PDX and felt fast and not exhausting coming from LHR. First time flying direct. Great food and snacks the staff took care of us. Bathrooms were cleaned over the trip which was great!"
Cons: "N/A - nothing..."
Pros: "Very nice staff"
Pros: "I loved the Movies that I could watch, Charger plug ins as well as the service. No extra hassel."
Cons: "Everything was fine. The flight was on time and I made it home safely."
Pros: "we have a very old plane from rome to chicago no entertainent"
Cons: "it was a 10 hours fly in a old plane without any charger for computers and tablets,no individual tvs"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Cons: "The plane was tiny and old"
Cons: "We paid extra for 'exit row' seats and were sat in sets that had maybe even less room than a standard row! I was extremely disappointed, and even the flight attendant said he had flagged this with his management and they continue to sell those seats as exit row and charge a premium. Very poor business practice on BA's end and will absolutely avoid flying with them in the future."
Pros: "Customer service at American Airlines was amazingly good. They figured out the mess that the third party agent, WEBJET.COM made and fixed it."
Cons: "The third party agent, webjet.com, was horrible. American airlines contacted them several times about canceling the ABQ-ORD flight and they never responded. WEBJET.COM did not put their name on the electronic ticket so I was unaware of who to contact. Finnair was not particularly helpful. They discontinued my chat conversation and didn't have an option to call back so I had to wait for 20 minutes. American Airlines was impressively helpful. They figured out that WEBJET.COM had canceled one leg of our fight and AA.com reinstated the flight. American had also contacted WEBJET.COM numerous times and WEBJET.COM had never responded."
Cons: "My tickets ultimately were booked through Kayak/webjet. I will never book through webjet again. You can't directly speak with an agent. They never sent me my e-tickets. I couldn't download my tickets prior to arriving at the airport. It was super confusing because I couldn't figure out whether I was flying on British Airways or American Airlines. I didn't know what terminal to go to. I finally checked in with American even after they told me to go to British Airways. Next, American said that my booking was messed up such that they couldn't check my bag through. So at Chicago I had to exit the Secure area, pick up my bag from baggage check, check it back in and go back through security. I still didn't have my ticket for the chicago-barcelona leg of the trip. At American, they told be I had to exit the airport again to go to British Airways for the Chicago- Barcelona leg of the trip. Luckily, i asked another agent and she confirmed my flight was though American. It was the most confusing flight experience, I have ever had."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath. Unable to use the entertainment, as I was unaware had to use my own device, which I had not set up in advance."
Pros: "There was nothing too bad other than I wasn't able to check in online bc our first leg of the flight was operated by American Airlines. But there wasn't anything that really stood out that would make me want to fly them again other than it was the best price."
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2 hours and after seated in the AA plane for 2 hours, the flight was canceled because without pilot?! Changed to a UA plane but after seated in the UA plane 1 hour, the plane needed to be maintenanced. Had been changed to another UA plane. After three times into three planes, arrived Chicago at 3:30am without the checked baggage."
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "Almost half empty cabin made this a very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "Food on AA was mediocre as usual. Edamame salad was nice and fresh for a change. Desserts are now prepackaged wrapping similar to candy bar..."
Pros: "An old aircraft but well maintained. Crew was courteous and efficient. No food or entertainment"
Cons: "Delay in receipt of baggage at Chicago"
Cons: "Okay, but flight was delayed."
Pros: "Options for entertainment. Seats felt larger. Plenty of storage space for carry-on luggage."
Pros: "Overall, I'm pleased with BA."
Cons: "This flight didn't have the individual TV screens."
Pros: "Air Berlin has very nice jets"
Cons: "The connection time was much to short, 40 minutes connection. I was in the back end of a 777 with a lap child. My stroller that was gate checked came back with a missing wheel on just"
Cons: "My flight was scheduled for 5.37pm, but came to the airport thinking that I could get an earlier flight to Chicago and I was there at 1pm, requested for standby status, did not get it because am not platinum of diamond member, asked for $75.00, of course I didn't want to pay and stayed in the airport thinking that my flight would be on time, but it was delayed and delayed and took off at last, saw O'Hare airport but it looks like the pilot could not land it because he did not get the clearance, but as a passenger, I saw the flight going around and around the Ohare area, at least 6 times, then after landing taxing took for ever. I WILL TRY NOT TO FLY IN AA AGAIN."
Pros: "delayed at both sides with very little announcements keeping us updated"
Cons: "That it got cancelled"
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Cons: "This was the worst flight ever. AA is the worst airlines ever."
Pros: "efficient, courteous staff"
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule. God my refund, but missed my business trip"
Pros: "Service, clean aircraft, I felt AA cares about me"
Cons: "Changing gates before boarding"
Cons: "American Airlines must change the way they service."
Pros: "It's a good flight but the crew in Mexico City is really bad"
Cons: "Good flight experience, but the front desk in Mexico they are really mean. I request to talk with the manager to give me solutions but the manager was the worst. The manager show lack of experience and he was unable to give me solutions. He give me more problems than good news."
Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"
