Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "They moved me to a more comfortable seat"
Cons: "The smell in the bathroom was terrible"
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Cons: "We didn't leave on time, so an on-time departure."
Cons: "This is the second American Airlines flight we have had in less than two months where there was an issue with the plane and multiple delays lasting hours. I understand delays happen, but we've had two late evening flights turn into red-eyes while traveling with one of our children. Will not be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "Pilots could have at least tried to talk to passengers on what was causing delays. Just silence"
Cons: "The flight was canceled; why allow booking for a flight you plan to cancel. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "The delayed flight was an issue, this caused me to miss my connecting flight. Punctuality is very important to me and should be to your airline."

Cons: "Overhead speakers in he plane weren’t very loud."
Cons: "They left my bags behind and told me they weren’t even checked in Worst customer service ever"

Pros: "i arrived alive"
Cons: "My flight was delayed on the way to Puerto Plata on 9/9 which made me miss an entire day and I was billed for a stay at the resort. I was booked to a crappy room in MIA that I had to get changed to another hotel. THEN my departing flight from Puerto Plata back to the US was delayed 2 plus hours (as was the first flight) due to a flat tire that had to be replaced. I missed my connecting flight and had to be placed on the next flight to DCA which was the last flight. This experience was the worst. I do not have a favorable opinion of American, of which I have flown this airline for years."
Pros: "The flight attendant for the back of the plane was lovely."
Cons: "The plane was unbearably hot and stuffy. My row wasn’t offered any snacks (some other rows were). A giant moth flew into my forehead, which was extremely startling. There was no entertainment offered and no power outlets for my phone, which was dead."
Cons: "Everything sucks"
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: "Horable...never ever use AA"
Cons: "Missed flight in DFW. All other flights full. Had to reroute thru Miami"
Pros: "Entertainment and a lot of empty space on each flight"
Cons: "I lost my first flight, as Avianca close it 1 hr before to aboard , Employees in JFK are so mean and rude. Avianca charge me another 900 Dollars on Top of 828 Dollars I did paid on Kayak.com, to "reschedule all my trip", that finally is exactly the same I had before . Avianca overcharged me 898 on top of what I Paid Luggage came destroyed and with missing thing at the final destination, nobody take care of that yet. even I made the compliant on write."
Cons: "Still waiting to get to the terminal."
Pros: "Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Bag transfer through customs and transfer to domestic was easy."

Cons: "Nothing, was a great flight!"

Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."

Cons: "No personal entertainment devices on 737-800."
Cons: "The flight company's got changed to AA from Iberia but didn't get any email from Kayak. Send an email next time please."
Pros: "Older smaller plane, no wifi"
Cons: "Iberia does not have a check in counter at lax. All flights are operated by American, but ticket issued by Iberia. American could not locate my ticket and as a result I missed my flight. Iberia's 1800 number would not cooperate to release or rebook my ticket until a full day and 3 trips to the airport later when I made a manager speak to an American airline rep to explain and resolve what should be done with my unused ticket. Unbelievably inefficient and rude."
Pros: "AA customer service was great because we had missed our connection from Rome to Chicago. They got me and my daughters on the next available flight back to LAX with preferred seating that we had already paid for. They proactively checked my carry-on and the flight had all the individual entertainment amenities we were hoping for. The crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "There was nothing about this flight I didn't love."
Pros: "Faux Leather seats on the flight Good overhead compartment space Decent legroom"
Cons: "The booking agent poorly scheduled our connecting flight in Charlotte as by the time we hit the ground, our next flight was boarding and the landing gate was way across the airport from the connecting gate. Needless to say we missed our flight and had to wait for 7-8 hours to fly out."
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Pros: "Great crew and amount of food. Loved the ice cream and little pizza snack - extremely good!"
Cons: "Flight really delayed which didn't make a whole lot of sense since it was the first flight that day"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled, then rebooked three times, when I finally was able to fly almost 24 hours later, the flight was delayed by over an hour. Not acceptable service at all. Not interested in ever flying with American again."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable and inadequate for a comfortable ride."
Pros: "Excellent staff and flight attendants."
Cons: "Coach seats were like cardboard. My back was killing me within 2 hrs... :("
Cons: "Our flight was delay for about 3 hours."
Pros: "I was in a seat in coach that was appalling. (28C?), one row behind the exit row seating. I am only 5' 8" but could not cross my legs. The guy to my left was KNITTING, so was constantly jogging my arm which I carefully had kept inside the armrest on my side. I will avoid flying in a BA 747 in future. Even Business is awful on those jets. I flew in Business once, and thought the head to tail layout was the worst I have experienced. I pulled down the joint divider and thought the person in the next bed was dead, he was lying there with his arms crossed over his chest! It's time to update the 747's or retire them."
Cons: "The pathetic little 4.5" times 3.5" screen in the seatback was a joke in today's environment."
Pros: "Quick, easy, great crew"
Cons: "They need to update their planes. No tvs, no ports to charge phone, not many food options for longer flights."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "My luggage was lost!!! People were sympathetic but no apologies or compensation Also, we were forced to pay extra for our seats before we were able to print boarding passes. My husband and I were not able to sit together which was upsetting to me."
Cons: "No seemed happy at all."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and got there on time to make connection"
Cons: "Nothing it was fine"
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."

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."
