Same as above. American Airlines is an absolutely the worst run airline I have ever used. There was no one at the gate in the first airport to help us. Whiplash from the emails about the flight time and no one was able to give us a definitive answer. Had to cancel our flight to charlotte, never even got to make it there. Big thumbs down to American Airlines.
My flight was delayed a total of 6-7 times before finally boarding 51/2 hours after the original time of the flight.
It’s American. They just don’t go out of there way to make it good. It’s ok. Frankly, if you want to go some places - they are the only real choice for non stop. If they weren’t - you wouldn’t fly them. Flight was fine. Nothing special.
Kind and caring flight staff. Comfortable flight
No food except pretzels were served and no movies available - no comment can be made
Cons: "When I got to dallas there was no one there with a wheel chair to help me get to my next flight. Asked the counter person for information and she almost could not be bothered. After asking twice I notice a golf cart type of transportation for the handicap. Well it took me 1 1\2 to get to my connecting flight. 2 other people had missed there flight. I was disappointed in American Airlines that they could not be bothered to help or even answer a couple questions."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was wonderful, she worked so hard the whole flight and was so pleasant. I am sorry I don’t know her name, but she’s beautiful!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Great flight"
Pros: "The pilot, crew, etc. was all good. Boarding was great, as was deplaning. There was a lot of communication."
Cons: "I'm a tall woman and I was never more cramped. I think in a long flight such as this 2.5+ hours, they should not be using American Eagle jets. They are so tiny and my neighbor and I were practically on each other's laps."
Cons: "Poor planning caused us to sit on the ramp an hour and a half for a gate to open up."
Pros: "We landed Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tray table broken Entire flight too cramped. Grateful I didn’t have the last seat in the back across from the lav. can you squ3eze any more seats into that aircraft?!"
Pros: "Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday."
Cons: "Our already delayed 1 am flight was cancelled a little before midnight. It was rescheduled to 8am. It was a big headache trying to get a hotel, meal vouchers. Then, there were no shuttles to the hotel available so has to wait in line again for taxi vouchers."
Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Pros: "Easy access and commute"
Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."
Cons: "Requested special meal online. When meal time came they said they never got the request. Wasnt able to eat. They should keep special meals on the plan in case this happens s"
Pros: "Good service in-flight. Pretty comfortable seats and decent in-flight food/beverage options."
Cons: "Crew was slamming overhead compartments before take-off and would ignore questions from passengers. Late take-off, very late gate change and late arrival. No help from crew on the plan to get bags taken care of so boarding took forever."
Pros: "While the incoming flight arrived late causing us to board late, the flight still landed almost 2o minutes early. The staff was very friendly as well."
Pros: "Clean airplanes. Customer service at PBI was great. Fake smiles. Charging in economy"
Cons: "No entertainment (tv wasn't working), FAs doing the bare minimum. No help even when traveling with a small child."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Late flight"
Pros: "Flights reached the destination before scheduled arrival"
Cons: "Chicago airport is a mess. It took us about 3 hours from exiting international terminal to domestic We managed to board a flight just before the gate close. Literally running in the airport. I believe there are people who missed the flight"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Baggage took 40+ mins unacceptable"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Layover, I had to also unexpectedly pay $50 for my carry-on. I couldn't help that I was group 9. I am very disaapointed. I will be using Jet Blue next time I fly to Arizona."
Cons: "Delayed flight and missed connection flight to KC"
Pros: "Staff is friendly and helpful, great attitudes"
Cons: "My initial flight time was changed to a longer layover for some reason. Which.. spending 6 hours in an airport is just not ideal"
Pros: "the fly was on time"
Cons: "I don't like central seats"
Cons: "Terrible attitude of Kay (Kathy) our flight attendant. Seemed like she didn’t want to be at work today. Said “thank you” and no response— didn’t talk at all. Seemed overworked?? No movie- no monitors? This was not First Class Service and we were very disappointed."
Pros: "The staff did their best to compensate for the 4 1/2 hour departure delay, getting us Panera sandwiches and snacks."
Cons: "The 4 1/2 hour departure delay"
Pros: "While it wasn't Singapore Air ultra quality, the staff did a nice job for an USA-based airline. I appreciated the option of watching first run movies. There was one I wanted to see but would never have made the time to see it in the theater. Done."
Cons: "Sadly, I am a big guy (2XL to 3XL). Halfway through the flight, my left thigh was throbbing from the pressure. I cannot afford first class travel so this will presumably be an issue until I drop the weight."
Cons: "The lady next to me was too large to fit in her seat. She clearly needed a second seat, but instead the stewardess just brought her a buckle extender. I was in an exit row and was smashed to the wall almost the entire trip. I was dissapointed that AA didn't require her to purchase a second seat on what was already an overbooked flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"
Pros: "Spaciousness of the middle seat they gave me headphones"
Cons: "Not a thing to complain about wonderful flight"
Pros: "It was nice that I had a seat empty next to me, allowing for extra room. Flight was a little early in landing in Dallas, allowing for extra time for a short layover to find my terminal and gate for my next flight."
Cons: "All was good."
Pros: "Entertainment, service, pilot and his crew were great."
Cons: "Food was not good. Can do better. As vegetarian there are lots of good places they can order the food from."
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "crew was kind and helpfull"
Cons: "They lost my luggage for 6 days. Also a 18 hour layover just the little things that makes the difference in travel"

Pros: "the people were very helpful and understanding of the situation."

Cons: "Having to get off!"
Pros: "Quick boarding, no shuttle! Pilot very informative"
Cons: "We were never asked for beverage service.Also when arriving and exiting to retrieve our bags when congested with baggage no room to stand and wheelchairs all at once trying to exit up ramp.Very unorganized and chaotic."
Cons: "Old plane with old everything!!!!"
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Cons: "For one of the premier air company's. They don't know what there doing. Old planes. Super hot. Dirty airplane."

Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"
