If I needed to leave in an emergency and could leave my bags in Chicago, this would have been an option.

I just bought a different flight on southwest because I didn't feel like paying extra for bags and shitty service. Better to pay more for a known commodity even thought I would much rather fly a major airline than southwest.

Cheap price

Food is expensive. I couldn't get my seat to recline. No option to purchase internet. It would be nice to be able to purchase food/drinks as a part of our ticket, so that we know ahead of time the cost and don't have to worry about paying on the plane.

Shared my row with 500lb people and though two rows ahead of me had two empty seats I couldn't move to be comfortable. This beast of a woman couldn't put her arm rest down and therefore her body was smashing mine the whole time. It was disgusting.

The flight didn't exceed 15 minutes to take off. Most AA flights I have taken in the past were delayed were 3+ hours. Boarding was completed efficiently and the entertainment, even though was on a common screen, was okay rather showing nothing.

The crew was very unprofessional, yelling across the plane because they couldn't figure out the seating arrangements for a family. It seems there was an error on AA's part of overbooking. They also forgot to my husband's beverage and never looked back. It would also be nice to have individual screens with the ability to freely watch entertainment provided.

Seats were comfortable, but much too crowded. The seating would have been very good for children but for adults it was much too crowded. My knees were up against the seat in front and my back is sore from having to spend most of the trip twisted to try to fit into the small space. Also, my seat was is row 16 and was called a “premium” seat and I was charged an extra $24 for it. I did not find it any different than all the seats around me. What was the extra charge for?

Boarding

I flew from DC to Austin, through Chicago. Flight was late leaving DC, was late leaving Chicago (mad had a gate change that wasn't announced), and when we go to Austin had to sit in the runway for 20 minutes due to someone else at the gate. I don't know if this was all AA's fault, or just bad luck.

Left on time arrived on time.

We went to the gate early and it was printed on our boarding passes. We left to get some food and came back and tried to board. The gate agent was incredibly rude and sarcastic about telling us that the gate had been changed. They also tried to sell us 3 upgrades when we were trying to get our boarding passes.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
