Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight and plan where great."
Cons: "Stewardess was very rude and un please y with all customers. Didn’t feel like she wanted to be on the flight. Her attitude was the main problem."
Pros: "The seat was a caca"
Cons: "With Covid they could hand out a bag containing water and a snack."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Almost had 3 people in a row...of people not in Same household. Luckily flight wasn't full so people moved around and made my row less crowded"
Cons: "Overall a horrible experience. Would never choose American Airlines given other choices. This was the second time this year I was held at an airport over 24 hrs due to plane maintenance."
Cons: "Flight was so delayed that we missed our connection"
Cons: "Flight was late for no apparent reason"
Cons: "If you fly first class your seat should recline. Ridiculous and the reason I go out of my way to make sure I NEVER fly American. Couldn’t avoid it this time and as always American managed to disappoint."
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Seat was ok because we paid more or has a “status”"
Cons: "Nothing has changed and nothing will-services is nothing to write home about, with yr little pack of pretzels-i am happy to get safely to my destination and that’s all that matters"
Pros: "Ground and flight staff terrible."
Cons: "Will not fly AA again."
Cons: "Flightleft 2 hours late and then an extra hour waiting at the next gate."
Cons: "Seat pitch was too tight, especially when the person in front of me pushed their seat back."
Cons: "2 hours delay, confused boarding process, very poor inflight service (got ignored twice)"
Cons: "Multiple lengthy delays, gate agents in Charlotte not committed to explaining the problem and solutions"
Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "The flight from Charlotte to Jacksonville denied 4 passengers boarding due to a weight restriction being met during the boarding process. There were no more same day flights available and staff was confused about how to resolve the issue."
Cons: "Our 5:30am flight was delayed for over 4 hours causing us to miss our connection. So by the time we got to our destination we had wasted the entire day. This was a loss of an entire day of our vacation. This was our first time traveling with American. We will never book with them again."
Pros: "The boarding was great. The food and comfort was consistent with the average."
Cons: "The crew (some, not all) could have been friendlier and more accommodating. Entertainment is better with TV’s at each seat for variety."
Pros: "Fun attendants"
Cons: "We boarded late, and due to technical issues had us stay on the plane for 30 minutes with no AC and delayed us for over 2 hours. I had a meeting and missed it. I’m also an American Airlines member and am horrified by this experience!"
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "We received an upgrade for our seats, during the flight the staff were very attentive to us. The flight was quiet and calm."
Cons: "This was an MD80 that had absolutely been ridden to death. I thought that AA was modernizing their fleet? This was a 30 year old plane."
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Pros: "I love everything on my trip service, time, flight"
Pros: "The flight was short and all went well."
Cons: "Due to what had happened in Alicante and having to purchase a new ticket for Rosario IBERIA told us they could not issue a boarding pass due to the fact that the flight from Madrid to JFK was on American Airlines. Once we arrived in Madrid it was very nerve wrecking because we had to go to several places in and explain everything and we needed to do a lot of running in order to make it to our flight on time, all this with two small children and people that were so unwilling to help"
Cons: "Easy direct flight. No issues."
Cons: "I felt like cattle. Horrible for long haul flights."
Pros: "everything on travel is good."
Pros: "I did not have a seat! Waiting for people to give up their seats!"
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Pros: "We boarded fast and the flight was smooth. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "The sears were a little uncomfortable. They went terrible but my back started to go out on my 2 hour plans ride."
Cons: "Without any explanation...American Airlines cancelled my reservation! I needed to be sent back to poor quality hotel for a night and take a different flight out the next morning. American Airlines was supposed to provide transportation back and forth from the hotel however a car never showed up at the hotel to pick us up and I needed to get my own taxi at the last minute (American did however reimburse me for the taxi fare at the airport). I never received an explanation as to why my reservation was cancelled and was never offered any type of compensation for such a major inconvenience. They dd ultimately waive my 25 bag fee but it wasn't very easy to even get that from them. I felt that they should have been more empathetic towards my inconvenience and offered me any type of compensation to make up for such a horrible experience. When I asked about possibly being upgraded to first class they told me absolutely not! A little graciousness can go a long way, American Airlines showed that they could not care less about my inconvenience (other than Rodrigo at the counter the next morning who actually showed he was truly sorry for the situation and at least ended up moving me to a row with more legroom). Other than this, I was extremely disappointed with this experience and how it was handled."
Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"
Cons: "AA worst airline People They have working in SFO Incompetent Rude Useless"
Pros: "The flight was cancelled on the runway on October 30, 2016. At times, someone within the ranks of this company needs to understand the experience and financial position of the average passenger. $12.00 voucher for dinner and breakfast in Panama city Panama is an example of being disconnected from the reality of that experience."
Pros: "Fomos atendidos pelo JIM ao fazer o check in e despachar as malas e adoramos o atendimento. Muito simpático e gentil."
Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."
Pros: "On time, arrived early."
Cons: "Seats too close in front of you."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane landed in Pittsburgh an hour and a half late because of mechanical issues. So that was inconvenient."
Pros: "Seats are the most uncomfortable seats ever"
Pros: "Very affordable! Traveling can be difficult, especially from Chicago O'hare - one of the busiest airports in the country - but everything was made easy for me and was a breeze!"
Cons: "No complaints here!"
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Pros: "I like the fact that the price was reasonable and the airline didn't charge for EVERYTHING! I didn't feel robbed."
Pros: "In an attempt to cover their failing fleet that caused a cancellation, they did provide taxi fare to another airport and food."
Cons: "After a cancelled flight sent me to a much larger airport, they did not have the staff to man the flight for 3 hours. I will not make this mistake of flying AA again."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Delays. Always. Delays. Tiny plane. Not enough leg room. Can't lean seat back enough."
