Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "The onboard crew was rude and one guy actually grabbed me which to me is unprofessional. All because I had a poster tube that wasn't in my bag they wanted it in my bag. Then I asked for a seat change due to my size hard for ne to be in the middle and the lady was snooty about it."

Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."

Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"

Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."

Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."

Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."

Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."

Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."

Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Cons: "Cancelled, had to stay in Dallas until next day"

Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."

Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."

Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"
