Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The crew was great. The plane was. It comfortable. There was no entertainment. Boarding was horrible. The manager was rude and made a snide comment to my husband while we were boarding.

Cons: "Manager on duty could’ve been more tactful and professional."
Pros: "Like clockwork. New plane."
Cons: "plane was too hot...AA needs to keep a lower temp and pump air through their plane...on a crowded flight like this was, claustrophobia set in. First time I ever experienced this."

Cons: "Limited space and I had a better seat Just beverage service - not even crackers offered No entertainment options Seat recline mechanism was faulty"
Pros: "Friendly curbside skycap at check in"
Cons: "I didn't realize that I was sold a "basic" ticket. No early seat assignment, last boarding group, no access to overhead stowage (didn't need it) so all bags have to be checked for extra fees, bought preferred seating just to be sure my wife and I could sit together but did not get a receipt and had trouble explaining this at curbside check in. Overall unsatisfactory. Same seats but no amenities."

Cons: "Missed first leg of a return flight to london. Was given no options for rebook and my RETURN flight was also cancelled. Iberdola flight operated by American, ticketed by airfare.com. I've never heard of a product where you have to consume one piece in order to be allowed to consume the other you already bought. Legal basis seems very suspect. Do not fly with airfare.com and be wary of kayak vendors unfortunately."
