Those regional jets are just cramped. Not much you can do.

Wifi didn’t work for me. Would be nice to have screens.

Cons: "My mother, Linda Thompson, has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, Dystonia. Along with this condition, stress can bring on non-epileptic seizures. My mother has had to endure one of these seizures due to the stress that this incident had put her through. As my mother's power of attorney, I am helping her vocalize this incident that she has experienced. The image below shows the spot where she was left, in the Atlanta airport, in her wheelchair. Delta airlines says they provide safe, accessible travel to all of their passengers. That includes providing an employee to transport physically disabled persons to and from their flights and to their shuttle. An employee accompanied my mother when she got off of her plane arriving in Atlanta from Charlotte. This employee was obligated to transport her where she needed to go. Due to her first flight being delayed, she missed her connecting flight in Atlanta, and had to stay the night until the connection could be made in the morning. They provided her with a voucher to a local hotel and a shuttle to that hotel. The employee who met her at the gate was obligated to help her get to that shuttle so she could get to her hotel in time. As many of us may know, Atlanta airport is one of the largest. You might need to take a train to get from one area to the next. It would be very difficult for my mother to walk that distance with her cane, and that is why she needed a wheelchair. The inconsiderate, selfish employee of whom needed to transport my mother to her destination was coming to the end of his shift. He attempted to hand my mother off to another employee at the desk while she was getting her voucher. Told her it was the end of his shift and he had to clock out. She told him, "You can't leave her here". Her statement, and the way she stated it, made my mother feel like she was a piece of luggage. She ignored it and let the employee take her on her way. She just wanted him to take her to her shuttle so that she could get to her hotel and rest. That did not happen. He strolled my mother along for a moment until they were out of site. They approached a gate, of which was empty, and he told her to wait here for an agent to come by. He left. She waited...and waited. No one ever came and assisted her. She was left like a piece of luggage in the middle of the Atlanta airport with no one around. My mother was treated like a bag that someone did not want to carry around anymore. This situation and the selfishness of that employee makes me think of who else could have been treated like this, or who else could be treated like this in the future. Help me spread this message so that something can be done about this issue. Delta has already been contacted, they do not care enough to do anything about it. I bet they will if this message gets heard by their potential future passengers."
Pros: "Airport staff was nice.. Boarding was good.. Flight attendants very friendly.. Smooth trip"
Cons: "Plane too small.. Nothing but one beverage given all flight"
Pros: "Staff all was good."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Pros: "Seats seem to get smaller but overall a good experience"
Cons: "Seat room"
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."

Cons: "Delays on the tarmac made our flight arrive late"
Cons: "Charlotte lost my bag and will not answer"
Cons: "lack of communication on flight delay"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work"
Pros: "Everything was generally fine. The flight left about 1 hour late, but the pilot made up the time on the flight and we landed about the same time as originally expected."
Cons: "The crew, particularly the flight attendants were rude and impatient. Have they forgotten their manners?"
Pros: "Smooth flight and crew was very good."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "We arrived on time"
Cons: "Didn’t do beverage service and had to sit on the tarmac for a while for a maintenance issue before take off"
Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 3 times!"
Pros: "Everything went as expected. Overall a smooth flight and friendly service."
Cons: "Well, it's never comfortable to try to sleep in economy class, right? But I knew that going in, and that's what I chose."
Cons: "The fact that it was a night flight and the lights were on 75% of the flight. They need to allow drinks to be an option."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was told to preboard when I checked in before the flight and was told by another employee i was in group 6 and shouldnt be in line. Had to explain why I was preboarding and didn't like having to hold up the line. It was embarrassing."
Pros: "The flight attendant was sweet and nice; flight was not full so I got to have a row to myself."
Cons: "I was surprised there was no beverage service at all. On my flight from Roanoke to Charlotte, same length flight, we were served water and pretzels. I would have liked a beverage."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and genuine"
Cons: "They didn’t load enough “for purchase” food. This was a six hour flight! They has no options left excepthummus and chips. This is second flight on American this year where they don’t supply the plane appropriately."
Pros: "We arrived safely The seats were comfortable We were on time"
Cons: "1) American's boarding process seems to be driven by ticket price and nothing else. Every other airline I've been with boards families with small children first. It lets those families and get on board and get setup so that they don't block aisle access for everyone else. American seems to board based on how expensive your ticket was. So, the aisles get blocked and boarding takes forever. 2) The cabin crew gave pretty apathetic service. When our baby threw up on us, they just told us to go clean ourselves up in the bathrooms. They gave us a can of soda water to help clean up, but that was about it. 3) When my wife asked if the bread was dairy free (for our baby with a dairy allergy), the staff's response was to turn to another staff member and ask them, "Do you want to go back and research that?" In the end they just told us they didn't have time to look it up."
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Have to pay for wifi use. Entertainment used to be included in flights and was apart of your airfare."
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Pros: "The flight crew was great and it was a very smooth landing."
Cons: "Had to pay extra for seats so we could sit together, near the front of the plane (not really, and no bathroom nearby, very small seats with zero legroom). we were delayed twice (40m then 1h10m) then told to go to a different terminal because now our flight WAS leaving on time! so we hauled over there only to be delayed again several times. we know it was a weather thing, but just wish there was more accurate info about when we would actually take off. seats on outgoing flight from SFO to CLT were GREAT, very roomy, comfortable. Coming back- not so much."
Cons: "I wasn't able to fly Alaska Airlines due to storm in Washington DC. My first flight American Airlines from Charlotte to Washington DC was cancelled. The second flight Alaska Airlines from Washington DC to Portland was delayed, but I never flew. I got a direct flight from American Airlines from Charlotte to Portland instead."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Pros: "We boarded fast and the flight was smooth. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The sears were a little uncomfortable. They went terrible but my back started to go out on my 2 hour plans ride."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "All well"
Cons: "Six hours of delay on the outward trip; five hours delay on the return trip. Don't count on American to get you to your destination when it says it will."
Pros: "I had all three seats to myself! The plane temperature was good, the pilots were friendly and funny as a spoke to the passengers. The crew was attentive, and we arrived on time despite getting off to a late start. Plus the pilots did a great job on landing the plane."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "My two Grandchildren and Daughter and Son in Law were bumped from first class due to change in equipment. There was no refund or other compensation offered at the gate. Agent said to contact AA customer service."
Cons: "The fact that people carry-on luggage that exceeds the max requirements for carry on luggage so they can avoid the checked luggage fee. It's a disgrace. It time to live by your rules, the same for everyone. I had to be rebooked out a different airport as PGV was flooded. I was seated in 21F which does not recline. AA cancelled my flight out of PGV, a better seat would have been nice since I had to drive an hour to EWN whereas I was staying only 10 mins from PGV."
Cons: "The flight was delayed my baggage was charged when I use my credit card for the flight and the plan was very small"
Pros: "The flight was on time, I like the assigned seat, and the service was pleasant."
Pros: "Nice pilot, one of the flight attendants were nice. The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "This airline always has delays! There is no in-flight entertainment (music, tv, movies, etc.); thus, the flight was terribly boring! Also, only peanuts and a small cup of soda was offered to us. Other airlines give cookies and biscotti! The seats don't recline and they need more legroom. The majority of the airline crew largely ignored us and showed mediocre customer service."
Pros: "The flight was boarded well in advance of takeoff, which was a pleasant surprise. The short flight was smooth and uneventful. I enjoyed a free movie, and then we were back on the ground."
Cons: "Baggage claim took extremely long time. It took a while before the baggage crew even became aware of situation."
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems. Had to check my carry on due to lack of space but my bag arrived quickly at my destination so this was not a big deal."
Cons: "Boarding is always a free for all. Even though passengers are called in groups no one listens and the boarding process never seems very efficient."
Cons: "The customer service from AA representitives in the airport was completely unnacceptable and the absolute worst service I have recieved in an airport to date! One incident during this trip was as follows: When arriving in Charlotte and running to catch my connecting flight, I arrived as the lady at the desk was closing the door, she looked at me and rolled her eyes. When I went up to the desk along with the other passengers arriving from the same flight as me the AA representative said "Hurry up , I want to go home!! At a point I'm just going to cut you off and that will be it!" She was of no help to me in anyway amd was forced tonstay the night in charlotte ; Normally this would not have been such a big deal, However I am on emergency leave from the Navy rushing home because I have a very serious family emergency, that representitive was very lucky I held my temper! From now on thanks to the poor unproffessional customer service I received I will no longer be flying American Airlines!"
Cons: "Broken seat and terrible gogo video experience with an attendant crew that was dysfunctional together for food/beverage service. I prefer to not fly AA."
Cons: "Spent over 30 minutes taxiing because another plane was in our plane's gate."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed 2 times in CLT then delayed almost an hour in Sacramento because there was not a gate open when we landed"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Seats are too close together, not wide enough, to short, no knee room."
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "Overall experience with American Airlines and those under them was definitely not a good one. In the future I will probably look at other airlines."
Cons: "Had another problem with the plane, this was the cargo door and after waiting forever, that was fixed and then they had to refuel, I was an hour and a half late getting to my destination and they kept telling us just a few more minutes."
Pros: "Fairly quick boarding, nice crew."
Cons: "Old airplane with old uncomfortable worn out seats. They showed a movie during flight on overhead screens, could barely see it and the audio was terrible. The food choices were unacceptable for an over 5 hour flight. Only one sandwich choice, pastrami on rye, really how many people like that one! Drink choices were the usual. Overall There would have to be a very compelling reason for me to choose American again."
Pros: "Only one word can be used to describe my experiences with American Airlines: seamless. From beginning to end, my trip with American Airlines was a relaxing experience."
Pros: "Wifi but I paid for it"
Cons: "Original flight got delay and had to miss my connection. Had to re issue a ticket. Flight also delayed. In flight lots of turbulence guy infront of me throw up smells bad, and my stuff got puked on."
Cons: "When arriving in Charlotte North CAROLINA, waiting to board my next flight to Nashville, Tennessee, upon exiting the flight there was no mention as to check your boarding passes because of a change at the gate to our flight fiying back to Tennessee. So i go to the terminal and wait patiently at my gate for my flight to arrive. The departure came but it wasn't for Tennessee it was for Norfolk?? So when i went to the flight agent asked her what happened to the Tennessee flight, she said the flight left 2 hours ago. And when i mentioned no one said anything different about some gate checks had been changed. So i ended up missing my regular flight back home to Tennessee, no thanks to everyone involved, and had to wait an extra 2 hours to receive another flight back to Tennessee. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!"
Cons: "Thanks to having to turn around and return to the US we were 7 hours later than expected. That is a huge chunk of time to be late"
Pros: "I liked the monitors on the seats allowing us to watch some recorded tv shows as well as track our flight. It was also nice to be able to charge my phone while on board."
Cons: "Seating was cramped as it always is. The seating was designed for children to sit side by side not 3 mature adults."
