Okay 4.0

Pros: The gate crew were very responsive and told us accurate estimates about the delayed departure time. They even distributed snacks for us.

Cons: The flight crew was subpar. We had been delayed by 2 hours and they did nothing to assuage anyone’s frustrations. Service was minimal and lacklustre. In flight WiFi didn’t work with any streaming service. Plane was noisy and old. Seat was about worn through. Truly the worst in flight experience I can remember having domestically.

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Boarding was fairly fast and the the flight was on time.

Cons: I can’t complain. Flight wasn’t full so I had the row to myself. That being said, I find the seats are too close together. I am tall and never have enough leg room.

AUS
IAH
Mediocre 3.2

Cons: Had to sit on the tarmac for 35 minutes because our flight was “randomly” selected to wait because there was too much air traffic over Houston. Result: I missed my connection to my final destination. The airline promised that the other flights were alerted of the delay and that people would be there to assist. May departure gate was literally two gates away from my arrival gate in Houston. No one was there to help. No exceptions were made to get me on the flight, even as it was delayed at the gate for 15 minutes, meaning that they could have gotten me aboard. The whole experience made me very angry. After all this, I had to wait an additional two hours for the next flight.

Cons: Everything was perfect.

Okay 4.5

Cons: The flight was delayed for over 2 hours because of a reported maintenance issue with the aircraft but was originally delayed because of not having flight attendants available. When the flight attendants did finally arrive they all had an attitude of wishing to be anywhere but on this flight. The lead flight attendant even got into a verbal altercation with the gate agent demanding help getting people's bags into the overhead compartment because she was "injured" & not supposed to be at work. All in all a quite dissatisfying experience but not an uncommon one with this airline & this airport. I will use both only when I have absolutely no other options.

Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Not much crew stayed in back almost the whole 6 1/2 hr flight and seemed not to friendly

Cons: It would have been better if they had departed when they said they were going to after a delay. Flight was delayed first 1 hr then two more hours. The airline finally posted that it would depart a 4 PM and we didn't even start boarding until 5PM. Then they tried to rush us on so that everyone was standing on the HOT jetway for 10 min waiting to get on the plane. Plane didn't take off til 5:35 PM. Over all on this trip I had three flights that were delayed. I'll think twice before taking American Air again.

Good 6.6

Pros: Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)

Cons: the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from.

PHL
Mediocre 3.0

Pros: Actually, the entree was good!

Cons: As always with American, we take off late - today 25 minutes. Constant announcements disrupting sleep - another common feature. And please don't thank me for choosing American, it's the only option from Philadelphia for the locations I travel to. Recently I traveled twice to Newark (an extra hour away) to avoid having to fly American.

Pros: The pilot told the passengers before the flight took off that there would be some turbulence. It was nice to know about it beforehand

Cons: The crew started serving first class passengers BEFORE boarding was complete, which forced the passengers who had not boarded yet to wait in line until service was complete. This sent a poor message to the economy class telling us we were not important customers

Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
