Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Cool AC, it was hot! AC barely working or set too low."
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with the other flight"
Cons: "This is my first time that I travel to US form dec 18 and have to pay for luggage. I can understand if that’s a company policie, but maybe I can flight in another airline that’s doesn’t have any variable fees."
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."

Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare.

Cons: "See comments above"
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Pros: "You at least have the one main screen to watch that everyone watches."
Cons: "Unlike most of to other flights, there is virtually no selection to choose from. It is extremely surprising that for a 7 hour trip there is no airborne gogoinflight option to at least watch videos on your own device."
Pros: "The plane was fairly new. Video worked."
Cons: "You sold me an Iberia flight and stuck me on American. That's very wrong! Then, I had a screaming infant and didn't get one minute of sleep on an overnight flight. American is so cheap they don't even have ear plugs any more. Seats are too small."
Cons: "Not so pleasant flight attendants."
Pros: "Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff."

Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Didn't like being grounded in Charleston because we were on a commuter flight while our AA connections was allowed to land in Charlotte and leave without us. Did not know AA operated flights receive priority at the airports over their inferior non-AA operated "partners". Will look for alternatives to AA in the future. Flight too short for a drink! No lodging because not their fault! Okay, storm not their fault, faulty policy is!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."
Pros: "Food. There was dinner (and wine) and breakfast. Check-in was quick, flight departure was on time."
Pros: "Business class comfort was a huge difference! The seat, space entertainment was great."
Cons: "Food not great. Priority line not separate for boarding. If you don't board right away when first called, you get stuck behind everyone else boarding. Those that have higher boarding numbers stand around blocking the line and no announcement ever made to remain away from line."
Pros: "It seems like the plane was recently renovated and I loved the comfortable seats."
Cons: "There was virtually no free entertainment available."
Cons: "Couldn't get my boarding pass. My name was wrong in your system, had to go to American Airlines desk for assistance and the attendant couldn't locate my name. There was a service attendant at the Alaskan airline service desk."
Cons: "Sits were not comfortable."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Several of the seats were broken - not sure why they insist on everyone raising their seatbacks for security reasons while they continue to operate flights where customers can't raise their seats. Maybe this isn't that important after all? The plastic backs of the chairs has clearly been refinished but the finish has worne off or been etched with customer graffiti."
Pros: "Did reschedule our flight before we left which was helpful -Group 4 but at least we could get home."
Cons: "Paid for seats closer to front to get off for connecting flight. Waste of money as flight was delayed 90 minutes trying to fix the water system which the slow response maintenance crew never fixed. Ended up using Sani-wipes and had no coffee - seemed ok for a relatively short flight and half full plane. 90 minutes to make the decision to just go on resulting in many rescheduled flights."
Pros: "They were able to use the electronic boarding pass through the app which is nice. Boarding was really quick."
Cons: "The overhead bins didn't have enough space for carry on for everybody flying."
Pros: "The boarding at GYE was very smooth and the GYE terminal is very comfortable."
Cons: "The check-in process at GYE needs to improve. Not many people in line and it still takes an hour get checked in. Plane crew waiting much longer to serve the food. That made sure I would get less rest on and overnight flight. Worst of all, after the crew served the food, the never came to pick it up. Just makes it uncomfortable to have a tray of trash on your tray table for 3 hours."
Pros: "Flight in air"
Cons: "Take offs and landings"
Cons: "They would not move me from next to the smokey 50'year old next to me. that's fine. But they told me I couldn't tell her to bathe and quit smoking. O well. I'm not gonna hold it against them for stinky old lady"
Pros: "I liked the smoothness of the flight"
