Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "None of the USB outlets were working in isle 7 A-C"
Cons: "No screens at all for a 5 hour flight. No charging outlets. Terrible flight comfort."
Cons: "If you fly first class your seat should recline. Ridiculous and the reason I go out of my way to make sure I NEVER fly American. Couldn’t avoid it this time and as always American managed to disappoint."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Leaving airport on time would’ve been a pleasure"
Pros: "Gate side crew was amazing in providing repeated delay updates."
Cons: "6:34 flight was delayed until 1:00 am due to not having a pilot. No weather issues just no pilot, poor staffing. Unacceptable."
Pros: "Non stop smooth flight"
Cons: "Gate crew sucked"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for no reason given. Flight attendant touched my baby without asking if it was ok. Too many announcements over the speaker. 20 min one trying to sell us a credit card was ridicoluolously long. It was also after an ad for it on the video screen."
Cons: "When my husband retrieved his luggage, it smelled terrible- like dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows down & throw away the baggage when we got home."
Cons: "The flight was canceled; why allow booking for a flight you plan to cancel. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Seats were more comfortable than other airline seats."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then stuck on runway for over an hour. No air at 3 am"
Pros: "The only good thing on that plane was the crew. We where grounded in board for three hours because of a water leak in the kitchen... My seat had a hole were the ashtray used to be filled with garbage, the tray was filthy when I pulled it open, the overhead light didn't work"
Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"
Pros: "Straight to the point,easy,and convenient"
Cons: "Nothing yet"
Pros: "Our luggages were pulled out of the plane without prior consent. Can’t deliver till the next day. Created a traumatic experience for our trip"
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: "Seats are cramped"
Pros: "Good entertainment and cabin crew was helpful and friendly"
Cons: "The ground crew was awful. After sizing my carry on and getting permission for my bag to go onboard I was stopped at the gate before boarding, the bag was re-sized and they made me check it in. I was very frustrated w their attitudes and overly rigid enforcement of the rules. In addition the boarding process was very confusing and unorganized. I don’t want to fly American ever again."
Cons: "The airline decided to randomize seating so boarding was an absolute mess, with families switching seats, understandably. Flight attendants didn’t help at all or try to de-escalate the issues. The bathrooms were dirty and unkept which is unacceptable for long flights."
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "It was 1:45 late . It was American Airline, we had extra passenger on board. It took them long time to figure it out. I was so rush, I barely made the connectiog flight and I only had carry on luggage."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew"
Cons: "Not much room to move around for such a big trip"
Pros: "New onboard entertainment"
Cons: "There was delay, as one of the steward was not there. There were 2 connecting flights for me, and was totally stressed about my connections."
Cons: "Delayed flight and missed connection flight to KC"
Cons: "Food could have been better. Plane was 1/2 full. WiFi was not giving all the movies. Only 6 or 7 to choose from."
Cons: "Delays, not helpful staff, not even a meal for a 5+ hr flight. No headphones available. All of this after American Airlines delayed flights and caused us to miss connecting. A whole night delay with no luggage because not one American Airlines staff could step up and help us. It was easier for them to be lazy and say “I know how you feel”. Never Again American Airlines"
Pros: "VEry good Cabin crew and the plane was reasonable new"
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Cons: "Age of plane, overall service"
Cons: "The seats are hard although spacious for a 3 set row."

Cons: "Check in / baggage drop : long wait ; rather unhelpful personnel at counter."
Pros: "I like AA overall, better than United for sure. I've been flying with AA since forever."

Cons: "Rude staff"
Pros: "My neighbor."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for over an hour for no apparent reason."
Pros: "When the arrival time of the connecting flight was changed, we chose another set of flights."
Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."
Pros: "Very fast, efficient boarding."
Cons: "Entertainment options were excellent although the screen did not work very well (touch screen not super responsive) so I could not get to them easily. Neighbor had the same problem too"
Cons: "plane no tv on each seat on a long flight from spain to jfk - that is truly traveling in the stone age - it was operated by American Airlines -the food was truly not eatable - the flight attendant did not even know where Bongor was and if the plane was landing there - the plane was from the stone age truly a disappointment"

Cons: "1 1/2 hour delay waiting for another plane was ridiculous."
Pros: "The captain and the flight attendants were very communicative and kept in touch with the cabin at regular intervals but not intrusive."
Cons: "There were 2 meal choices., one was chicken and one vegetarian curry/rice dish. Clearly the chicken would be the most sought after meal and the flight attendant even suggested the possibility that everyone would not get their first choice, and ofcourse they didn't. We had a group of 10 traveling and by the time some of,our group was served the chicken was gone. Our daughter was 7 months pregnant and was one who didn't get a chicken meal. I don't understand why the airline would not provide an adequate amount of meals that would apply to the masses. Only a few vegetarian to fill in for specific diets would be expected. We all felt this was poor planning on the part of the airline catering company.."
Pros: "On time, we arrived safely."
Cons: "Long way to connecting flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "Single seating on the left side of the plane has limited foot room due to the design of the plane at the floor, which is raised. Leg room is non existent as is headroom. The seat was very uncomfortable. Luckily this was only 1.5 hours flight time otherwise it would have been pure misery. Right side seating on the isle would be better for foot room but the other aforementioned issues exist."
Pros: "What’s to like about flying commercial economy ? The chicken meal was tasty though."
Cons: "45 min delay boarding because the catering was late. Room in the seats. Plug between seats was not very reliable."

Cons: "Too early Too full"
Cons: "Flight was actually non existent. It took us two days to get to our destination, Cancun so we lost a day of vacation there. We had to stay a night in Dallas and traverse all over the airport between American and Untied to chase down our vouchers for luggage, dinner, and rooms. Exhausting. We had to travel two hours in an old mini van from Columbia to St. Louis to even get started on our vacation flights. We did not have a pleasant experience with United on either side of the trip."
Pros: "As usual, the crew was excellent. Very professional and courteous. The pilot kept us informed of progress throughout the flight and was also very personable."
