Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Pros: "The crew looked tired and somewhat friendly. We were delayed about 45 mins and they really didn’t communicate much the Captain did. On the ground we had to wait 20mins for the jet bridge and the door to open and no one said anything. The plane was shut down and turned on again too."

Pros: "Entertainment System loaded with movies Optional WIFI at cost Aisle seat Air quality / temp control was comfortable Passport control through JFK was straight forward and short for USA citizens"
Cons: "Food: Better to just serve a fresh panini than to go through hassle of heated mystery meal... Seat Assignment: I went to Malpensa airport the night before to assign seat, but there was no American Airlines gate agent nor partner airline that could help me...Even though this was AA199 purchased through British Airways. The B.A. check in said that they couldn't help"

Pros: "Unfavourable crew. Pilot was very good and detailed though."
Cons: "The smell on airplane, was not offered any water to drink."
Cons: "The pilot decided to add fuel and catering after all the passengers had boarded. We arrived in Chicago after a 4 hour delay and we couldn't find a gate for 20 minutes. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "The cabin seemed to have more room than most I have been on. Short flight, so no big negatives."
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: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."
Pros: "Everything was fine except..."
Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good. The Founder and Creed are great movies."
Cons: "It's an old plane and almost nothing works. The food was not great. The crew was horrible. It sounded like the pilot was drunk. The crew treated us like we were a burden. They spent the entire time bothered and ripping on the passengers."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Pros: "Swift boarding."
Pros: "The friendly flight attendant."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding and leaving Dallas but we arrived on time. And the plane is very narrow. Two ladies with hips sitting next to each other can be uncomfortable."
Pros: "Everyone was so nice"
Cons: "They didn't give me a drink"
Cons: "The flight was delayed severs hours. I missed my event in Tampa due to the delay. We were sending back and forth between gates and the flight was overbooked. The staff was very unpleasant."
Pros: "Fast, friendly service."
Cons: "They left my bag in RDU.."
Cons: "I did not like the head rest, very uncomfortable"
Cons: "No food or drinks on this flight"
Cons: "ORD -> LAX We sat on the Tarmac for 45 mins without any communication. We ended up landing on time, but I was connecting to an international flight, so this naturally caused me and my companion a great deal of unnecessary stress. LAX -> ORD I arrived at the gate prior to the 10 minute before take off deadline and the gate attendant said I couldn't board and walked away. I sat and waited several minutes until a gate attendant returned where they proceeded to call stand by passengers. I was checked in and present, but not allowed to board. So I approached a different attendant, explained and he looked surprised that I wasn't boarded. He then without asking me any questions or checking with me typed on his computer and then handed me a new boarding pass for a new flight 1:25 later. I boarded that plane and sat for over an hour. The pilot had no updates for us other than the delay was a maintenance issue, saying repeatedly that he would check again in 15 mins. Finally after wasting more time we had to deplane and wait for a new one. Ultimately I was not allowed to board my original flight without explanation, which then caused me to have over 3:30 in delays. This is all after I had arrived from an international destination, which made the ordeal very miserable. This type of awful experience is a pattern with American Air - rarely are my flights on time and I've had more cancellations with American than any competitor airline. Anything but A full refund would not be acceptable. Thank you, Randi"
Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the plane was small the plane was not comfortable"
Pros: "The trip was great. Very courteous crew & the cabin crew was very efficient with a big smile and helpful. Great flight."
Cons: "The first leg of the flight out of Huntington was 4 hours late as the flight was cancelled due to one of the crew members not showing up. It was a very uncomfortable delay. They stated that one of the crew was sick. There was no notice about the delayed flight."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."
