Pros: "In flight entertainment is nice but only seems to happen on shorter legs of the trip. Also, too many useless interruptions from crew during movie. You don't have to keep thanking the passengers throughout the flight. And the volume through your headset is way too loud on crew announcements compared to regular listening volume of your program."
Cons: "Forced on later flight."
Pros: "Once we finally boarded, it was fine- plane was new and clean and entertainment system was great. Agents did the best they could with limited information on flight status. Provided snacks at departure gate- but they were all unhealthy."
Cons: "Flight originally booked with 2:30pm departure time, was pushed to 4:30pm a few weeks in advance. Then the flight was delayed on the day by 30 minute intervals until 9pm. Finally, we were switched to a different gate to board a different plane. Then sat on the plane at the gate for another hour so they could load all the bags. We didn't take off until 10:30pm- painful."

Cons: "Used a neck/back pillow and jacket against hull to try and keep my shoulder and arm from freezing solid. I usually sit by the window on a couple dozen flights per year, and it has never been this cold on my arm. I wonder if a heating pad would work on their outlet?"

Cons: "Customer service over the phone is the worst. 30 minutes for them to pick up and then get transferred to a very rude representative."

Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with tv in the seats"
Cons: "Huge delay on my flight and most other flights from LaGuardia that day, lack of information on reasons for the delays ."

Cons: "1. 1.5 hour delay on a 70-degree, sunny day. 2. all of the outlets in the gate area to charge devices during the delay -- and 90% of them didn't work!!!! It's almost better not to design new seating with outlets between seats, when the outlets don't work -- neither did the ones on the walls. People were lined up for the ONE wall outlet that did work."
Cons: "Weather delay"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "So I originally had the free seat 11A. The app offered me what looked like a bulkhead from the seat map on the app at seat 10A for additional $19. I feel for it. No bulkhead, no extra room, nothing, waste of $19"

Pros: "Lots of movies available!"
Cons: "One small bag bag of peanuts?!?"
Pros: "Window seat"
Pros: "Frontline staff were nice."

Pros: "Crew was good n seat could have been bigger."
Cons: "Landing late to Chicago almost cost me my connection so I was stressed and could not eat due to limited time in between. The airline didn't notify us of being late to Chicago until I was on plane. We were told it was on time. Very disappointing.."
Cons: "seating, food, entertainment, boarding"
Cons: "This is my first time that I travel to US form dec 18 and have to pay for luggage. I can understand if that’s a company policie, but maybe I can flight in another airline that’s doesn’t have any variable fees."

Cons: "They seemed to have entire plane boarding in group 6. Hardly anyone boarded in groups 1-5, and when they called 6 the entire gate area lined up."
Cons: "No free wifi"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice, boarding was calm, we got there much earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "1) Biggest complaint is not about the actual flight we were on, but the one we missed, who left the gate Early, even though they knew we had landed and other people from our BCN to JFK flight made it. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING, esp since all other flights to DC out of JFK were cancelled. 2) We were on the last row of the plane so our seats didn’t recline. Annoying at best bc the flight was so short, but would have been nice since we had been traveling for 18 hours by that point (because of the late flight, missed connection, cancelled JFK flights, etc)."
Pros: "Nothing, they’re awful."
Cons: "American Airlines failed to provide the service we paid for: a flight that arrived home in the morning, so that we could get to work. We had to use vacation days we did not have to spare."
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Pros: "That the armrest came up."
Cons: "The landing, having to check my luggage and receiving it banged up when I saw more spaces for my luggage on the overhead compartment, the pilot not mentioning turbulence, no entertainment, flight attendants not being observant for persons not buckled in, last but certainly not the least...the flight delay."
Pros: "There was nothing that I liked."
Cons: "One half hour before boarding we learned there was a delay. Obviously, American Airlines knew way before this time of the delay. At 6:00 p.m we were told they were bringing another plane from the hanger. The plane showed up around 9:00 p.m ... must be a long trip from the hanger. Then we were told they are waiting on a rear flight crew from another flight. After getting the rear flight crew, we were told that the front flight crew "timed out" and they had to look for other pilots. Needles to say after arriving at West Palm Beach at 1:00 in the morning...about four hours late the passengers were all devastated. American could have orchestrated this so much better"
Pros: "Short trips so no entertainment is offered so it's n/a"
Pros: "Left on time, arrived early, God food, pleasant flight."

Flight attendant responded immediately when I had trouble with my headphone cable and brought me a replacement cable. Entertainment option with wide choice of live television was fine for flight and helped make flight go by fast. This was our first use of first class service, and we would consider it again.

Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to mechanical issues. The AC was not working but they had us sit in the plane for an hour in the heat while they tried to fix it. Then finally had us deplane to wait for replacement plane. Not that the employees weren't polite and courteous because they were, but the last time I had a delay like that the airline gave everyone vouchers for $100 off next flight they booked. Your company let us watch TV for free. Hardly comparable!"
Cons: "The departure monitor first said "on time," then "awaiting aircraft," with ever-later estimates for departure. There was little confidence that there would even be a plane."
