Pros: "Plane wasn’t full, they allowed everyone to spread out in the plane"
Pros: "Good movie selection on the touch screens"
Cons: "The new self scan at boarding took awhile for each time to read the phone or paper boarding pass. The crew, specifically the lady with big hair, was not in a good mood. Super narrow seats!"
Pros: "The crew was better than my first leg of my trip. They had manners and were attentive."
Cons: "The food and drink selection"
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"

Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."
Cons: "The cabin was hot for the whole flight"
Pros: "Boarding was fine and crew were friendly with one exception. The in flight entertainment is great idea, except that the wifi went down mid flight, mid movie."
Cons: "First and foremost seats are very uncomfortable. Would expect American to realize that passengers will be sitting for 9 hours and the seat needs to have some cushion. Could not get comfortable so could not sleep. Most of the crew were friendly and courteous, but was the 1 who was less so. Wifi quit"
Cons: "The flight was canceled; why allow booking for a flight you plan to cancel. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."
Pros: "Old aircraft. No media at the seats. Why are old aircraft still being used?"
Cons: "Basically everything. For the price, the flight on AA across the sea was horrible."
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: "Good flight"
Cons: "Nothing. Process was smooth"
Cons: "AA flight into Miami delayed due to late arrival of aircraft, followed by significant delay on the tarmac waiting for another plane to leave. This then delayed getting bags that required rechecking. At the AA booth, even though I was 42 minutes before the flight, they would not let me check my bags (not 45 minutes before) requiring me to stay in Miami overnight before booking me on a standby flight the next day. Customer service representatives were unhelpful and supervisor was rude. As someone who travels a lot, this was the worst service I have ever received from an airline (which says quite a bit). Will rethink ever booking a trip on American again."
Pros: "Great plane"
Cons: "ATC delayed us 2 hours IN THE PLANE. Luggage was delivered to the wrong baggage terminal. LAX is the worst."
Cons: "Flight delay at every single step of the way Crew was great though"
Pros: "My favorite part was after we all got off, the man helping everyone get their luggage said take one down and pass it down if it’s not yours. It was genius!"

Cons: "Missed because of first delay"
Cons: "Tiny plane. No leg room. No TV’s. Staff took three full rows to themselves for sleeping."
Pros: "Rarely do I find the airline food excellent, or even good. But the Pasta dish on the Amsterdam-to-Philly flight that is what I experienced, absolutely delicious."
Pros: "American airlines is located in a small terminal at CDG which works to its advantage. Compared to other airlines, getting to the US from Paris is a lot easier. The airplane was brand new, entertainment on board is the best I've seen in a long time. In Chicago, clearing immigration and customs was a breeze, the airport is very well designed for international travelers."
Pros: "Food was okay. Luckily plenty of wine to get through 8 hours on this horrible plane."
Cons: "No individual video screens. Also our audio did not work ( true of most of one side of plane) so we could not even watch movie on the TINY overhead screen. Reading lights also did not work. We had no options to pass the time for an eight hour flight. The crew was unconcerned about the problem. They seemed grumpy!! This plane should not be used for long haul flights."

Pros: "Entertainment selection."
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "Plenty space due to flight not completely booked ."

Yet the airline won't let you know or change the schedules they just take your money knowing they will likely not be able to deliver the desired product."
Pros: "I enjoy the movie/TV options while in the air. They have a good selection you can view on your wireless device."

I feel sorry for American Airlines..Ok we landed safe..Thank God, that's something..."
