Cons: "Plane was supposed to depart at 9:09pm. An announcement was made that in Atlanta which is Delta hub, there were no flight attendants for the flight so we had to wait for another crew to fly in. That's just unporfessiknal. To make matters worse, the gate agents didn't make announcements even if just to say we know this isn't good and we will update you asap even if just to tell you we are still waiting on word. Total silence and seeing the gate agents laugh and talk amongst each other was pretty bad."

Pros: "Seats felt thin"
Cons: "No delay. Seats were horribly uncomfortable."
Cons: "Rude crew member who yelled at me from across the cabin. I had stopped at an empty row to sit and look out a window. She yelled at me to return to my seat."
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."
Pros: "Seating had a good amount of room and was comfortable."
Cons: "Bathroom was messy and a little disgusting."
Pros: "The entertainment options"
Cons: "The crew barrels down the isle with the cart on am already cramped plane. LAX construction consistently causes ridiculous waits on the tarmac after landing. The deplaning process was super slow."

Cons: "Luggage lost never return"
Pros: "Flight attendant was a little rude"
Pros: "I liked that we arrived on time. Besides that. Not much."

Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "Bag check fee is steep for students."
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Cons: "Let's take a minute to thank American Airlines for assigning a 34 year old US Air plane without power outlets, entertainment options or even working personal lights for a trans-Atlantic flight. On the positive side, the seats were also very uncomfortable and had ashtrays!"
Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Cons: "Took off 40 minutes late, rude attendants, very hot on plane, no apologies from staff for being late. Worst flight in a long time."
Pros: "Finishing my flight, being able to say I'll never fly American again."
Cons: "Without notice or warning, I was required to pay $200 for my dog, tranferring from Alaska Air, to ride in cargo for the 2nd leg of my trip. My fare was approx. $84. They would not accept cash, but made me spend another $5 on a "gift card," because I don't own credit cards. Rude, uncaring, marginally competent ground crew."
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Pros: "The counter attendant was helpful in changing our seats so could sit together."
Cons: "The flight attendant when first boarding was extremely rude. We had a bag we brought on three previous legs of our total travel which was considered by all of the other attendants as a personal item. This particular attendant very rudely informed us it was not, and we needed to check it. When we tried to explain the previous flights she responded with “I just explained this to the other passengers...it’s not allowed.” We didn’t argue, and gave the bag to the personnel in attendance, but the tone for the duration of the flight continued."
Cons: "The cabin heat was way too high, I actually was sweating. Boarding took 35 minutes"
Cons: "Bought a sandwich which was old ..."
Pros: "Super smooth flight - it’s an average commuter flight - no fancy bells and whistles."
Cons: "The legroom sucked. I’m 6’1”, and my knees were up against the seat in front of me."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival."
Cons: "My checked bag, which l paid $25.00 for, didn’t make it on the flight to Pittsburgh. It got there on another flight at 7:30 pm Monday night but no one from American Airlines did anything about trying to get it to me until 11:30 pm. As a result, while l stayed at a hotel only 30 miles from the airport, my bag wasn’t delivered until 2:00 am on Tues, more than 8 hours after l got there. And their website for supposedly checking on lost luggage, aa.com/bag status, is next to useless. It gives no useful information. Use the 800 # but state you want to talk with a human when answering the questions in their phone tree. I’ve had other experiences on AA over the last few years that lead me to question their commitment to customer service. I’ll be avoiding American Airlines as a travel option where other alternatives are available."
Pros: "Leg room between seats"
Cons: "Temperature in the aircraft was extremely cold and when I asked the stewardess for a blanket one asked the other if there was a spare blanket and very bluntly answered no. Only toilet in economy class was cloughed up and was not functional therefore a very disgraceful situation, they sent me to the other toilet in 1st class area and there I notice several blankets on empty seats after I was told there weren’t any spare blankets."
Pros: "Landed on time. AA is mostly on or before schedule. Definitely like that part. Smooth flying as well."
Cons: "No interactions with the crew this time. Boarding is okay."
Pros: "No complaints. A smooth flight. Met my expectations. Would fly American again."
Pros: "AA flight crew were wonderful. Very helpful and polite."
Cons: "The overhead compartments filling up. Had to check in my bag. Just glad they offered complitary checkin bags."
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Cons: "lost time and monies...and opportunities."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient"
Pros: "Plenty of food and drink on the flight. Having your own choice of movies and TVs to watch helped pass the time."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "Couldn't get movies to play"
Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."
Cons: "Flight delayed from CLT-LGA: Missed connection by 1 minute. They practically slammed the door in our face."
Cons: "I am so tired of people reclining back in my lap. It has happened for the last 3 times I have flown. The last flight the man reclined before we even took off and he was not instructed to put his seat up. There is no room for the tray table when the person reclines in front of you. I am sick of looking at fat bald heads during the entire flight. Wifi also sucks."
Pros: "Premium space"
Cons: "Sporadic communication from flight deck on the nature of 2-hour flight delay. Initially we understood that dispatch was the issue because of fuel for the flight. Next, it was a weather delay followed by an apparent ground stop."
Pros: "The free mivies, the leg room was good also"
Cons: "Flight left late and yge long wait for the baggage. Too long!"
Pros: "The crew was hospitable and did well under the circumstances."
Cons: "Older aircraft was slightly cramped; no entertainment or food. Flight was full and boarding slow, with much ado about overhead storage use."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor for a 9 hours flight."
Cons: "When your on your honeymoon it sure would be nice to have a seat next to my husband like we requested."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Everything was perfect from the boring to me getting off the plane"
Cons: "nothing wrong"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Could not get a flight to tulsa. Moved to a delayed flight to OKC with rude gate staff and no inflight drink or food service."
Pros: "This leg of the trip was not packed. There was an empty seat between me and the person next to me"
Cons: "This flight was 6 hours. It did not have frontal entertainment, which was not pleasant. They did not offer blankets. The plane was cold as I boarded the plane. I asked for a blanket and was advised they didn't have any. I was so cold the entire flight that I still have a cold due to the flight. I froze the entire flight. I stuffed my arms in my shirt and let my hair down for warmth. Also, I learned my lesson. Pack my own blankie for comfort. I checked my carry on in Aruba due to overhead capacities. My bag had my sweatshirt and the blankie Delta bankie I acquired when I flew from SFO to ATL."
