Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."
Pros: "The flight was ontime, boarding was okay. Disembarking seemed a little slow."

Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "Not applicable"
Pros: "All was quiet. It was an early flight. Nice offer of more snack choices than other airlines."
Cons: "Didn't understand why I had to wait until getting to the gate to have a seat assigned when I purchased tickets several months ago. Since I was in the last boarding group, Had to check in my bag since it was already full, had fragile stuff in there and hoping everything is ok. it is what it is. Not anyone's fault but disappointing to have to do when I didn't plan on checking in and going to pick up at the baggage claim. This is what i wanted to avoid in the first place. could have at least offered to let us pick them up as we deplaned and not baggage claim!"
Pros: "Free meals and entertainment"
Cons: "Can someone please improve airline food?!"
Cons: "No Wi-Fi"
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"

Pros: "Delta fed us so well. They made sure we were as comfortable as possible. The flight attendants were nothing short of kind and always smiling. Even the pilot was very ethusiastic over the intercom before the flight. He made jokes and everyone laughed. In fact, it was the most I've ever heard from a pilot on any flight in my life. I would rate this the best flight I've ever had. Thanks, Delta!"
Pros: "gate personnel delivered bad news routinely"
Cons: "contingency planning was zero to get flight crews to next flight..."
Pros: "Excellent service and on-time"
Cons: "Baggage charge"

Pros: "The customer service of the middle aged White frmale FA"
Cons: "The seats were small"
Pros: "Ground crew screwed up"
Pros: "The quiet so I could sleep"
Cons: "Changing my seat last minute. Had to ask two women to move to get into my seat. Loading the plane first with passengers that have nothing to store above would expedite the experience for me. My seat belt disconnected from the back of the seat. The tray was broken and could not be lowered into a writing or eating position."
Cons: "The airplane was very cold, and our seats were screwed up. Gentleman at the gate was very helpful, and handled the problem the best he could."
Cons: "Free WiFi"
Pros: "The crew was professional. The seats work OK. This flight was on schedule and on time and I appreciate that most of all."
Cons: "Nothing really. No complaints"
Pros: "The crew did great"
Cons: "During covid-19 they are not even attempting at providing a modicum of social distancing. Every seat in both of my flights was completely filled, meaning that we were squished up next to everyone despite any efforts to stay 6ft away from each other in the airports. Many passengers were wearing their masks incorrectly (not covering their nose, TAKING OFF THE MASK TO SNEEZE) and were not being asked to wear their mask properly by staff. I felt completely unsafe and won't be flying American again until there is a vaccine for covid."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost an hour. Being that it doesn't arrive in ABQ until almost midnight, a 52 minute delay means I don't get home until almost 2 in the morning. Seats also seem to be kind of narrow on the 737-800. I'm not a big guy, but I am still bumping shoulders through out the flight."
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"
Cons: "All good with me"
Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"
Pros: "Crew was courteous; greeted entering and departing the plane. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Increase leg room and widen seating- way too narrow in width and uncomfortable. Flight, although it arrived on schedule, was unable to taxi to the to dock at gate due to lack of ground crew. I have experienced on-time arrivals only to wait on the tarmac until ground crew arrives is unacceptable."
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."
Cons: "More communication with the passengers would have been a bit better !!"
Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"
Pros: "crew made me feel guilty to change my paid for seat so a married couple could sit together and I was solo"

Cons: "Seats size and bathroom are horrible. I don’t know what to rate for food. They don’t serve you anything but a drink."
Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."
Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."
Pros: "Flight Crew were professional and accommodating throughout the trip."
Cons: "AA should inform customers via its App when they are the carrier for another airline. That way, one would know which terminal at LHR to go to. Check in was not good as there was no staff to assist or even an information kiosk in the immediate area. Had to go looking for one with all my luggage; they were having a group 'chat'. Then, instead of being helpful when asked to change seats, commenced to quiz me about why and what I did during my trip."
Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "Excellent passenger service. PSA consistency performs as best of regionals."
Cons: "Past was dry... It was the first time but changed my experience"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Cons: "flight delayed in Mazatlan 115 minutes, although told time would be made by pilot, not true.. No help in DFW, missed flight, had tickets in first and had to settle for coach 3 hrs. later."
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "very crowded waiting area, too little leg room, horrible dinner"
Cons: "I'm pregnant, and didn't have time before my connecting flight to get food at the airport. I was sitting near the back of the plane, and was ready to purchase food. By the time the cart reached my row, all the food options were literally sold out. I ate the free cookie and had some apple juice, but wanted something with some protein. I guess I'll remember to pack more snacks next time."
Pros: "Fast, friendly service."
Pros: "On time. Helpful at check-in and friendly staff on board."
Cons: "Flight was late, no info why, when landed in DCA NO GATE AVAILABLE - and that is past 10 PM."
