After buying the leg room upgrade. forget it. Entertainment? What entertainment? You have to buy the entertainment player. Seriously? After Alaska Airlines nickel and dimes the customer to death?"

Pros: "gate agents and crew nice. leg room good"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "I have never been on a flight where I was bumped in the leg or arm repeatedly. Passengers were constantly up and down the aisle along with the carts hawking their wares. I trussed myself up like a turkey with the seatbelt so I wasn't on the armrest so as not to get hit again. My grandson who is a lot smaller than I, tried to put his head down to sleep on the tray table. He looked so uncomfortable. I know the deal is butts in the seats, but even the seat bottom is horribly uncomfortable. These planes have become cattle buses. I put up with it because there is no choice and I can't afford first class."
Pros: "Staff was cordial"
Cons: "Seats were narrow. I'm not overweight, and I have no idea how fat people fit. I'm certainly pleased that I wasn't sitting next to someone big."

I was told they didn't have bags for my car seat and that I missed my flight. By the time I scheudled a new flight and made it through security to wait for my 9 am instead of 6 am flight the flight I was suppsosed to be on was boarding. Also when I checked my bags after being told I had to call the 1800# instead of use the customer service desk I was told that I had to pay for my pack n play. When it was not charged on the way up."
Pros: "On time and can check in at least two bags each passenger !"

Cons: "Can't think of any negatives."

Cons: "I'm tall and the space is really tight, especially when the person in front of me reclines their seat."

I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about. I rated the food as 3 * because the snacks they give out are cookies (which I am sure most people appreciate) but I am only eating healthy things. Some salty nuts would have worked for us. Drink wise there were multiple sugar free options, which I appreciate,. I had a Seltzer and orange tea."

Pros: "I appreciated the checking in process with Akemi. She made it seamless! Thank you!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, but it may have been that I was squeezed against the window because of the extremely obese person in the middle seat. It would be nice if there is a person who cannot fit in the seat to have them be moved to a larger seat. Not sure if that is realistic or not, but it is pretty uncomfortable to have a stranger's stomach fold laying on your leg for 3+ hours."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and then postponed to 3 hours later but at least they reaccommodated the passengers as good as they could."
Cons: "Flight schedule is what I did not like. It would have been good if there was a straight flight from Alaska (Anchorage, Fairbanks) to LA and LA to Alaska (Anchorage, Fairbanks)"

Cons: "Delayed for an hour because of changing tire"
Pros: "The flight crew was great"

Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Pros: "Pleasant crew, pilot was a little late, but was very courteous and apologetic."
Pros: "Fairbanks airport small and cozy, very easy to hear boarding announcements. There were two seats in our row and behind us that had been assigned to more than one person. The flight attendants were very quick and resourceful in solving the issue to everyone’s satisfaction."
Cons: "I srill dislike the idea of purchasing food and paying baggage fees separately from the tickets. Creates inconvenience as well as at least three separate transactions, increasing your exposure to possible credit card data theft."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Cons: "The leg from Atlanta to Pointe de Pitre had no wifi or even old style entertainment. Bring a book!"

Pros: "Plenty of room, on time"
Cons: "The flight was quite smooth."
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."

Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Mess up at JFK left us on the tarmac for an hour before getting to our gate. Pilot kept us informed. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "Very nice airport, comfortable and up to date"
Cons: "Having to wait for seat assignments - add to the stress of travel"
Pros: "Stewardess named "Mel.""
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat to "Comfort" for both of us. Bank account was charged for both. Got to gate and only one of us was upgraded. Gate agents said there was nothing hey could do, and that I had to call customer service. Nothing, in person. Terrible"
Pros: "The crew of this flight were fun and personable without being intrusive."
Pros: "The overall flight was good."
Pros: "Snacks were readily available; gate and flight attendants were friendly and accomodating."
Cons: "Free in-flight entertainment required an app to play, need for which was not advertised at all. Flight on United earlier in the month included announcements to download their app before takeoff. Customer service ahead of flight was a mixed bag. One assistant was went out of her way to help quickly and then comped a fee after I waited ~30 mins and then explained why we'd need assistance at the gate that she could not provide. A previous assistant was not able to provide this explanation."
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Everything was satifactory and as expected."
Cons: "Flight was delayed from leaving the gate due to a fuel manifest needing to be signed. My baggage was really mauled ( by TSA or by Delta baggage handlers, I don't know). One zipper on a compartment was totally torn off. Another zipper was missing its pull and was difficult to open."
Pros: "Plane was clean, staff helpful"
Pros: "Airtravel is not exactly something to 'LIKE' but it was good."
Cons: "Attendant was a bit forgetful, didn't get my or my daughters drinks straight. She took forever to take the order too and was using a phone or something to type the order in and STILL got it wrong!"
Cons: "Flights too close together, didn't allow time for transition go gate and a break before getting on another plane"
Pros: "Service and friendliness was awesome."
Cons: "No drinks served, sorry flight."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped! Cabin crew not particularly friendly."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "i love the view from the window seats and that I was able to relax and the snacks."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The flight was packed and wearing masks Was not enforced."
Pros: "Good crew, appeared to work we’ll together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."
Cons: "Why do I continue to subject myself to American Airlines and their horrid equipment, late, delayed or cancelled flights? The ABSOLUTE worst carrier in the country. Without question."
Pros: "Nothing. Door closed in my face departure board never showed it was boarding and I ran from my other delayed flight to try and catch the Wilmington flight"
Cons: "American needs to step up their device and the airlines should be punished for their lack of service If an airline vises a non weather delay there should be immediate compensation for passengers. No different than what retailers do to their suppliers when supplier is late delivering merchandis"
Pros: "On this flight was a female flight attendant who anticipated my every need. I wasn’t flying first class, but still, she went out of her way to treat me very well. Her personality and hospitality made my flight relaxing, made me feel loved and appreciated, and the flight felt like I was already home"
Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"
Cons: "No idea. I thought everything was good."
Cons: "Multiple delays with no updates."
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Nothing. Process was smooth"

Pros: "Service was poor and unconcerned about comfort or needs."
Cons: "The flight staff did not appear to want to do their job."
Pros: "Nice quick, timely flight."
Cons: "BARELY made the flight..delays leading to it. Ridiculous waiting on the Tarmac."
Cons: "Delays departing delays connecting delays delays delays. Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "We found the chart listing gate where we should go. We went there. Told the last listed flight was late so stayed there. With no announcement the gate board listed a different flight. We asked and was told gate was changed. What a surprise, Went to the info board and had to RUN to our new gate. Barely made it on time. This is awful communication."
Pros: "The seats were quite comfortable."
Cons: "My bags didn’t make any legs of the trip. AA should allow downloading the app on the airplane."
Pros: "Great seats in first class"
Pros: "Most everything was great"
Cons: "When you have an isle seat, it is very difficult to sleep when you get bumped by the flight attendants every time they pass you. Understanding that there is limited space, just giving feedback"
Pros: "The films available were okay, but we had to watch them on our phones."
Cons: "Moved our gate twice, both times the AA boarding crew laughed at the anger they’d caused among the upset passengers. They were also not vocal about the gate changes until pressed. We were asked to sit by the emergency gate as able and willing humans unaware it was placed beside the center bathroom.. so unpleasant."
Pros: "The crew was nice and the plane was sparkling clean"
Pros: "The complementary beverage was a welcomed surprise!"
Pros: "Good time for flight"
Cons: "Tight, hot inside plane, no refreshments"
Pros: "Do you really think there is anything to like about flying these days. We are sardines pack on a your planes."
Cons: "Purchased business class seats, boarded in group 5. Had no where to put my 1 backpack. All the storage up front was gone. Why should I pay extra for a seat if I have to wait for everyone to get off the plane so I can go back 10 seat rows to get my bag. Dirty tray tables."
Pros: "Very quick fight. Faster than anticipated arrival"
Cons: "Lack of leg room, no personal entertainment, poor snack options"
Pros: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."
Pros: "Attendants were so nice as kind"
Cons: "AA claimed the overhead storage was full and took my carry-on. Except I walked by at least 15 spots that easily would have fit my bag. They made us pay $50 to check-in luggage, but then didn't bother to put the bags on our flight. They also tried to charge us twice for the privilege of checking bags. They had no flights that would get us home on the same day, then claimed that since 12 hours had elapsed, we had to repay to check bags. During the flight, they had non stop commercials for their credit card. Ugh"
Cons: "Missed it."
Pros: "Once I got onto the plane, it was fine. It was a short flight. Everyone was nice and they offered drinks and a small snack."
Cons: "I was late to my first flight from Dallas to LR due to my flight from Spain coming in late. I got off the plane and there was also another connecting flight printed for me. I thought "wow that is amazing sevice! I am def going to brag on them." I should have done it myself... after a 30 hour traveling day.. I got to the counter to get on my second scheduled flight home, and it wouldn't let me on because something with my Rickey was not working on the computer. The person did not know how to fix it so I missed the flight. After calling a supervisor, and that said supervisor never showing up, someone else finally happened to walk by and helped the original person fix the problem. Finally after waiting 5 hours total, I was on my flight home. The first flight was amazing but this flight makes me question if I want to ever use American Airlines in the future."
Cons: "I paid hard-earned money for an expensive flight to Madrid. Not only were we very delayed on the way there, we were also delayed on the way back. We spent 3 hours back and forth on the tarmac stuck on an old bus in 100+ degree weather being delivered conflicting information, summed up to the seats being "broken". We got a "bathroom break" during which was talked to very rudely by the flight attendant at the gate, and then was almost left behind by the bus on the tarmac. Additionally, once we got onto the plane, it was extremely old (I'm talking no TV's, ashtrays on seats, filthy tables, dirty seats). To top it off, when I went to the restroom in the middle on the flight, I saw flight attendants drinking Tito's and soda in the back in the plane and talking loudly. I am not usually one to complain- but this was a particularly bad experience and terrible ending to my vacation."
Cons: "Hot on plane."
Pros: "Badly handled dealy situation"
Cons: "Airplane very clean like new"
Cons: "Not enough staff at the airport to check in all passengers for early departures"
Pros: "Ability to avoid storms in order to provide a less stressful and safer flight. Actually arrived early!"
Cons: "Did not like having to board from the tarmac."
Pros: "Quick and fast. Slept through the landing and woke up to everyone gone and was in a rush to get out, but forgot my phone and passport, and I asked about it they went back there and looked for it for me and got it back. Over all good experience."
Cons: "Wish they offered water, but since it was short it made sense."
Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Pros: "Nothing special. Horrible food (the worst in years). Cabin crew try to manage but a refurbished plane doesn't justify more than double for a substandard bussines class."
Cons: "Late by 40 min"
Cons: "Didn't have the wheelchairs for my elderly family members and then gave us attitude when we asked for them."
Pros: "good service......"
Cons: "there is not much selection for in-flight food"
Pros: "Overall experience was great. I prefer American to other Airlines. I love how there are several flights daily between these two destinations with low fares."
Cons: "Plane was late"
Cons: "The plane was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "The seats on this plane seemed narrower than any plan I have flown on. I have never had a seat where both my hips were touching side of seat at same time"
