Cons: "Seats were a little dirty especially for the COVID-19 going around."
Cons: "I had a flight with a connection starting at 6 PM on a Monday. At 5 AM the day of the flight I received notification that the first flight would be delayed, making connection impossible, I was prompted to select another flight to arrive to my destination. I chose a flight with a connection staring at 7 PM. Upon getting on the first flight we began to prepare for takeoff. After about 30 minutes the pilot notified us that we would be delayed 40 minutes because we had nowhere to land at my connection airport. I realized at that point that I would possibly miss my connection, which was scheduled at 10:20 PM. However, I did arrive at the connection airport around 9:40 PM which would have given just enough time to arrive at the connection gate. Unfortunately, upon arrival to the connection airport the pilot informed us that we would have no gate to de-board the plane. The pilot stated that all connections "were aware of our delay" and gave us the gates for each connection. I got off the plane at 10:15 PM and ran to my connection gate arriving exactly at 10:20. The gate attendants informed me that my flight had left, my bags were on the way to my destination city and that I would need to spend the night in the connection city. The attendants, appeared disinterested and impolite but upon prompting provided us with a hotel voucher for the night. The next day we arrived at the airport 2 hours before boarding and waited at the gate. When it was near the time for departure we were informed that the plane had been downgraded and requests were made for some to give up their seats for a later flight or check carryon bags to make room for other passengers. While some lined up to give up their seats and bags, those who chose to remain on the original flight were forced to wait before boarding the plane. We were then told that we would have to wait until the pilot and crew arrived before boarding. Scheduled departure time was 5:46 PM but the time got pushed back until we boarded around 6:30, departure was rescheduled to 6:50 PM. We boarded the plane and waited for departure but a few minutes later the pilot informed us that "he just got here" and that there were mechanical problems that would cause further delay. After an hour we were informed that the plane was not able to fly and instructed to go to another gate for another plane. Departure time got rescheduled to 8:30 PM. The plane departed after 9 PM and arrived at 10:30 PM for a 5:46 PM scheduled departure."

Cons: "The non-ability to pre book seating. Assignment not available until arriving at departure gate. No entertainment."
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."

Cons: "Flight crew"

Pros: "Seat and headrests especially were nice"
Cons: "Very bumpy rides in both cases"
Pros: "Nice crew and good equipment"
Cons: "Bad bad food very disappointing"
Cons: "Due to weather patterns, we sat on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off. There was approx. 50+ planes ahead of us. I know this because I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot on his way home. About 2 hours in, there was 30 planes left to take off, and then us. They air traffic control people were only letting off one plane per minute which is what was holding us. THEN after the 3 hours on the runway, our crew timed out and the brought us back to gate saying we were not taking off. At the gate, they informed us the flight was not 'cancelled' but 'delayed' to the following morning. I/m not sure how a 16 hour difference is considered 'delayed', but I digress. All Delta reps had NO idea the time of the new flight the following morning and told us all to just 'keep checking the app'. Now, fortunately for me I live in Brooklyn and could just go home. But what about everyone who was at LGA as a layover? I heard from multiple passengers they had to spend the night in a hotel, that Delta did not pay for. We finally got notice the new flight was scheduled for 9:30AM, which they AGAIN delayed until 11:30AM. Many people did not get the second change, and were already at LGA for the 9:30AM flight. To say Delta's handling of this was poor is an understatement. We knew when we got on that plane the crew was going to time out. Again, I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot who told me to 'get comfy, we're gonna be here awhile' the minute I sat down. Delta should have given us a fresh crew, or had a backup one prepared. I understand the weather is out of there control, and I understand you can't have a tired crew piloting an airplane, but there are other ways to have us take off remotely on schedule."
Pros: "The moviea"
Cons: "The time of night"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "Low price."
Cons: "Delta provided no information as to why the flight was late. No earlier flights on other airlines were offered."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "Seat 27F is not a seat. The online system messed up!"
Pros: "Overall service, food, entertainment was good. This was a Virgin Atlantic flight to New york with a connecting flight to LA."
Cons: "The time between the two connecting flights made it impossible to make the next flight. Between waiting for customs and my luggage by the time I made it to check my bag again it was time for the flight to leave. There just isn't enough time and it looked like everyone missed their connecting flights."
Pros: "After canceled, Delta had a hotel and found new flight for next day. Shuttle to and from hotel provided."
Cons: "Ten gate changes. Rescheduled for 15 to 45 minutes each time for 6 hours, this lead passengers to believe flight would still happen. Which a backup flight was not booked. Frustration!"
Cons: "We could not get our seat assignments till the gate I thought we would get bumped off our flight"
Pros: "Very comfortable for such a quick flight."
Pros: "The flight time are on time ."
Cons: "Good entertainment on broad"
Pros: "Crew was great. Love that the soft drinks are still free, unlike some other carriers. More leg room in the plane as well"
Cons: "Delay of 1.5 hours for “fuel” reasons that were sketchy at best. Luckily we were not one of the many that missed connections"
Pros: "Comfortable seats with plenty of legroom."
Cons: "The counter agent charged us for one bag when it should have been free. According to her, there was nothing she could do as that's what the computer stated. She did mention we have a receipt so we can ask for a refund. Why was she even there?? Could have done the same with a kiosk."
Pros: "Crew was courteous; greeted entering and departing the plane. Flight arrived on time."
Cons: "Increase leg room and widen seating- way too narrow in width and uncomfortable. Flight, although it arrived on schedule, was unable to taxi to the to dock at gate due to lack of ground crew. I have experienced on-time arrivals only to wait on the tarmac until ground crew arrives is unacceptable."
Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Pros: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"
Cons: "Equipment delay"
Cons: "Only pretzels, came eat refined flour, nuts or something else would be great."
Pros: "Overall the plane was in good shape with a nice infotainment screen and charging options."
Cons: "Add support for Bluetooth headsets on entertainment screens. For the love of all that is good in the world make those seats more comfortable! The isles were super narrow and difficult to exit quickly while carrying my carry-on"
Cons: "Flights got delayed"
Cons: "This plane needs to be retired! It was the most uncomfortable seat I’ve ever had! Also the plane was extremely warm. Like a sweat box or a sauna. Miserable flight. Glad it wasn’t long!"
Cons: "Last minute (after partial boarding) they had to switch planes due to a "maintenance issue" which I would think they would have caught earlier."
Pros: "Punctual, connexion gate very close"
Pros: "The seats are roomier than British Airways"
Cons: "One surly flight attendant-generally obnoxious to the passengers."
Pros: "Power outlets at some seats"
Cons: "Little entertainment choices, no complimentary food, late, charged for even the most basic seat selection"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "On time, arrived early"
Pros: "They made a long trip comfortable with an excellent attitude."
Cons: "I was in such pain by the time I left this flight, the seats were horrible."
Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "I had to run for all its worth."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed somewhat by a service door not completely latched. The plan returned to get it closed, then was promptly airborne. After the delays, the flight actually made it to our destination by our scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"
Pros: "I didn’t like it. I am still here and I hope i can fly back to ho chi minh without extra pay."
Cons: "Delay, pay extra money for different fly."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I flew American four times in 7 days, every flight was delayed. delay times varied from 90 minutes to over three hours. Fog in Chicago was beyond anybody's control, but the other times were not weather related, I recently flew frontier Air and their flights were also late. I jinxed myself by stating I never have this issue with AA. Great job at proving me wrong. I flew a good bit last year and these issues didn't start until after the new year., Thank you for your time."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "Absolutely none of it"
Cons: "The entire experience was the worst flying experience of my life"

Pros: "Quick and painless flight"
Pros: "Just about nothing."
Cons: "Aged plane, aged bitter crew."
Cons: "No screens in each seat."
Pros: "Great flight & got in early"
Pros: "Everything great. Rate food and entertainment moderate because there was no dinner, which we did not require, and we went to sleep so didn't pay attention to entertainment."
Cons: "I didn't get home til 1am bc of this flight delay. A lot of the passengers were on the final leg of overseas travel, so we had a really hard time with the delays. Boarding was inefficient. Cree counted us like 6 times. Why is that necessary? Plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "For the most part the trip was wonderful."
Cons: "I was unhappy because every leg of my journey I was being charged for my baggage. I thought this was unfair. Those working with customer service was not helpful either. They were frustrated and thus frustrated me. In addition my flight was late leaving the airport and the captain nor the stewardesses gave an explanation. This was unacceptable. We were late over hour."
Pros: "After I pledged 25 years ago I would not travel with AA, this recent trip to Miami was delayed 30 minutes going to Miami and one hour goin back to Panama."
Cons: "Ticket counter very long in Miami. Kiosk did not work. Flight delayed in both routes."
Pros: "Boarding process was easy"
Cons: "Extremely cramped seating for such a long flight and there was no food or entertainment. when my daughter got sick, crew seemed put out by having to help."
Cons: "The boarding was seemed unintelligent. Why would a passenger in a window seat have to wait until the other middle and aisle passengers board. I got on the plane and had to wait for the other two passengers get up and step into the aisle so I could take my window seat. I was in group 7 and apparently they were in a lower number group that was allowed to board before me."
Cons: "I had problems with my reservation. Somehow my last name was typed wrong on the sistem and they couldn't fixed it at the moment i was doing my check in. I had to purchased another ticket otherwise i was going to missed my flight. Very disappointed with that airline. It was my second time traveling with them and definitely my last one."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, attentive staff, good entertainment offerings"
Cons: "AA got rid of the video screens on the back of seats."
Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Japan Team excellent in customer service"
Cons: "AA flight crew very poor and not helpful, I saw one of the flight crew almost fight with a customer over a baby crib. As per my experience I had a nice travel suit that I took off and flught attendant did not offer help. I have to store on floor."
Pros: "Everything was very pleasant for myself and my four year old grandson. Have never had any problems flying with American Airlines. Thank you"
Pros: "Quick boarding, no shuttle! Pilot very informative"
Cons: "We were never asked for beverage service.Also when arriving and exiting to retrieve our bags when congested with baggage no room to stand and wheelchairs all at once trying to exit up ramp.Very unorganized and chaotic."
Pros: "The crew's response was better than expected."
Cons: "Snacks were a bit too expensive."
Pros: "I had a great experience. Each flight left and arrived at designated times and the staff were very friendly."
Cons: "I have no complaints about any of my flights during my trip."
Cons: "Iwould like my money back notting i bever made it home"
