Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Not run late, have entertainment on board and provide better snacks."

Pros: "Fast. Arrived early."
Cons: "More room."

Pros: "plane was very nice and roomy, crew were friendly and good service"

Pros: "Loved sitting in exit row. So much more room!"

Pros: "The seat was super Uncomfortable. Squished Middle seat that I paid $37 for (w/Priority boarding, see below). What a ripoff. The seat was designed specifically to torture passengers, of this I am certain."
Cons: "I paid for a seat upgrade that included "Priority Boarding", For AA, that meant Group 5 out of 9. WTF?? Clearly Bait and Switch - there's a big placard at every AA boarding gate that states: Priority Boarding 1-4 (to the Left) and "Main Boarding" 5-9 (to the Right). Fraudulent, clearly."

Cons: "No concerns What I expected for a quick flight"

Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Flight got delayed several times. Had to reschedule flight."

Pros: "The crew was very attentive. The seat (as I am sure you know) is not 100% comfortable. One of those little pillows that some airlines provide would have been appreciated as I need a bit more back support."

Pros: "Although boarding took a very long time because the flight was full, the flight was smooth. The touchdown was awesome."
Cons: "I can't comment on food. I didn't get any."

Pros: "Seats are fine but confining."
Cons: "Need more overhead luggage room, more seat room, missing individual monitors to watch a variety of programs."

Pros: "Customer service In Philadelphia was fantastic. Got us on earlier flight so we didn’t have to wait 4 hours."
Cons: "Food and aircraft was old."

Pros: "Staff were nice enough."
Cons: "We gate checked our stroller and carseat intending to pick them up at the gate when we land. This is something we do every flight we take with no issue, but despite the gate agent confirming that the items would meet us on the jetway, when we landed, we were informed that we would need to pick them up in baggage claim. This meant that instead of having our infant sleeping in his car seat as we spent an hour + going through customs, we had to carry a crying baby around the entire time. In addition to the fact that we asked the gate agent told us the wrong thing, instead of being handled with care, the stroller and car seat were sent down the baggage claim carousel with all of the other bags, getting banged up. This was incredibly frustrating and a terrible customer service experience."

Pros: "This was our first time flying Avianca. The flight attendants were attentive and helpful!! We will definitely fly Avianca again to Colombia!"

Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."

Pros: "Crew was very nice Flight was very comfortable"
Cons: "Mediocre snack/meal"

Pros: "Got to Nj safe"
Cons: "3hr delay leaving; delays in getting bags at baggage claim"

Cons: "Fourteen separate delay communications. Second time in three weeks had this happen. Figure out the problem and give us an estimate when you know something. Don’t just constantly add a half hour."

Pros: "The quickness at which they discovered my suitcase was missing even before I got to the luggage carousel and sent me text. The quickness at which my suitcase was found, put on another plane and returned to me the next day by noon to my home. There was nothing missing."
Cons: "That damage on my suitcase is not covered. Corner was torn 8 inches and a tear in the fabric. But it wasn't my expensive suitcase. It got caught on the carousel I sure because the paper identifying strips got caught somewhere."

Pros: "Good choice of movies."

Pros: "Real nice people at check in and flight crew was really nice"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I went to check in for my flight and was told that it changed to American Airlines. By the time I arrived to the gate it the flight was full and they wouldn't let me on. I want a refund."
Cons: "See above."

Pros: "Food & Entertainment were good. Thankfully the crew seemed to have waited for us."
Cons: "We were late, so some guy took my seat. Attendant was annoyed that I didn't just take any open seat. I wanted the seat I purchased, near my wife. The other passenger didn't gain anything by taking my middle seat as he travelled alone."

Pros: "Great plus amenities if watching flight."

Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "not enough food"

Pros: "Streamlined boarding process"
Cons: "Poor leg room and no video . Older plane."

Pros: "Customer service in general"
Cons: "Boading could be smoother. Some customers had a hard time to put a luggage into the upper compartment and blocked a passage."

Cons: "The fact that your company doesn't want to give me some sort of compensation for being delayed and missing my connecting flight and having to get a hotel."

Pros: "Good price, effective transportation, nothing special"
Cons: "Very full, not super comfortable"

Cons: "I was advised by customer service agent over the phone that it would only cost me $100 for an extra bag on my flight and that it would remain the same whether i paid it online or at the airport. However, at the airport i was told that the extra bag is $200. My office agreed to paying for the extra bag only for $100. Now I am out of pocket with $100. So disappointing."

Pros: "Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Adequately handled the 13 hr delay."
Cons: "Flight delayed 13 hrs for mechanical problems. Seems to be an ongoing problem w/ American Airlines now."

Pros: "We were delayed because of weather yet the crew kept us aware of what was going on and still got us there on time. Great crew. Very polite and professional."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Plane did not crash."
Cons: "Has anyone at AA ever watched the insane boarding process? No running water on the plane, not hot anything (coffee, tea, food). Generally terrible experience, like most of the airlines."

Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "No volé en LATAM si no en AA y en esta compañía al principio no sabían sobre mi reserva y cuando si, no pude hacer el checking online, sino solo en el aeropuerto , en ambos vuelos"

Cons: "Our flight was delay for about 3 hours."

Pros: "roomy flight, great movie selection, food was great"

Pros: "They got us seats on a Latam flight later in the day."
Cons: "I don't like being bumped from a flight when you have e-tix in hand from a month previous purchase for three travelers."

Pros: "Entertainment system has a good selection"
Cons: "No earphones to listen to the soundtrack on the entertainment system"

Cons: "Food was bad even for airline standards. Seats uncomfortable. There were 2 female crew members who seemed like they didn't want to be there or cared. Movie selection was limited with not many new releases. One of the worst international flights I've been on for a long time."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew was unhelpful, not prepared, only cookies for food, no personal entertainment, and charged check-in bag fee."

Cons: "Turbulence was horrible That there is no internet"

Pros: "Excelente la atención y los servicios prestados por la tripulación"

Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."

Pros: "Quick flight (made up for lost time), good pilot, smooth landing."
Cons: "- Delayed by 30 minutes or so at take off - Too cold in the cabin, no more blankets to provide - Overhead compartments were full so people with a luggage where asked to get back to the front of the plane to check in their luggage. Very inefficient process as there were still people trying to board at the same time - No in-flight entertainment"

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly. Pilot was easy to understand and gave the passengers regular updates on flight status. Flight was short and easy."
Cons: "The seats on this smaller plane were shaped in such a way that they provide very little support to your back...I guess that's my only complaint."

Pros: "Loved the people, very friendly and accommodating. I sat in first class and felt very comfortable."
Cons: "I think needing your own device for entertainment is awful then having to pay rental fees, even if you're in first class."

Cons: "It was a short flight so there was really no food or entertainment."

Pros: "COMFORTABLE SEATS EVEN FIR A BIG GUY LIKE ME, FRIENDLY STAFF."
Cons: "LAST RED EYE FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED"
