Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "the crew was great, the food was okay, the movie selection was awesome, overall really happy with the flight."
Cons: "as far as a seat in coach goes, you're getting a pretty good deal. obviously flying 14 hours across the pacific is pretty rough and we would all like to fly first class, but as far as coach goes, I cant complain. only downside was that I had an exit seat, so tons of leg room, but couldn't use the entertainment while in taxi, takeoff and landing, where I could've squeezed another movie in, but its a safety thing and a fair trade for the extra room."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "If I can avoid flying American I will... on my way to Rome, 4 hours delay due to technical issues. Same plane on our way back, 2 hours delay due to technical issues. I did not feel safe knowing that plane has so many technical issues. Had to wait almost an hour on the plane to get to our gate."
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "This was a quick flight - 39 mins I also got an upgrade too"
Cons: "This leg of my trip went off without a hitch boarding and crew were very professional."
Cons: "Instead of taking my one half of one ounce plastic cup half-full of wine, the stewad, allowed me to keep it. I love common sense."
Pros: "Game of Throne as a boxset"
Cons: "if my return flight was by AA rather than another operator"
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"

Cons: "It was an older plane but it flew fine"
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, friendly service."
Cons: "Need some sort of gluten free snacks!"
Pros: "Entertainment, crew, and service were great. Captain announced kept us updated and the flight was smoothe sailing."
Cons: "No room to move at all. I had an aisle seat and almost everyone bumped into me when walking by. The guy In Front of me reclined his seat and banged into my knees for 4 hours. If the inside person wanted out, we had to grab our belongings, unbuckle, and move completely into the aisle to let him out. Then do it all over again when he returned. Rediculously tight on space."
Pros: "ontime easy boarding comfortable and quiet"
Cons: "no gluten/dairy free items"
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Cons: "Boarding crew did not realize I had priority boarding and split me up from my wife. Not a big deal, just annoying."
Cons: "inflight entertainment wasn't working on my seat only which made my 6 hour flight seem even longer :("
Pros: "staff was nice, but check-in is clumsy and inefficient"
Cons: "plane from Prague to Philly is ancient, still has the drop-down screens from 1981 and the radio station dial for listening in, but that didn't even matter as the video system was down for half the flight. No electrical charging capability unless you carry a car adapter with you. Overhead space was tiny. At least they had headrests, which is weird since the seats are obviously 30+ years old. Business class and first have been upgraded with new features."
Cons: "My flight TO Charlotte was cancelled on Wednesday morning and AA couldn’t find me a flight to CLT on Wednesday so I had to spend 22 hours in the car driving to NC and back. I huge pain!!!"
Pros: "Flight was on-time and crew was pleasant. This flight had movies available to watch!"
Pros: "Fast trip!"

Pros: "Boarded in a timely manner."

Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "Got an option to upgrade to first class and it wasnt expensive either, my first time flying first class"
Pros: "Once we got underway everything was excellent and fast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to the original plane being hit by a bird."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Cons: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation. We understand that Things happens and the airline takes precautions to make sure everything is okay before take off. However, I'm very frustrated and disappointed."
Cons: "The leg room for seats were horrible especially anyone passed 5 ft 7in."
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."

Pros: "Service, attitude, great hospitality. Was never treated this nice on any flight ever."
Cons: "Fact that I have to fly different airlines in the future"
Pros: "everything ran like clockwork"
Pros: "Immediately after I finished with the check in agent, two men flashed police badges, grabbed my bags, and took me to a sketchy back room upstairs and absolutely tore apart my bags. While my bags were being searched they peppered me with questions. It lasted about 20 minutes and it was extraordinaryly stressful because they didn't seem to care if I was going to miss my flight. Normally, i wouldn't blame the airline for this, but another lady who was similarly harassed said that when she asked someone they said that if you're traveling alone and booked online, you got flagged for this extra screening. (A young German man was also dragged to the back room... we were all very non-Andean looking). That is ridiculous criteria to prevent anything- terrorism or drug smuggling! I would think the airline/police could come up with better criteria. Also, there was no drug sniffing dog and they didn't even have me turn on my gigantic camera... which I have had to do in the past to demonstrate that it was functional. Horrible."
Pros: "We were able to get to Denver"
Cons: "Jammed in like sardines, rude flight staff, extremely hot aircraft for November"
Pros: "Everything, it was my first time flying and I actually really enjoyed it! I'd be looking Forward to flying with this airline again!"
Pros: "The entertainment is modern and had a good mix of movies and music."
Cons: "It was crowded and and hot. I couldn't stand to go to the bathroom because the seat in front of me was leaned so far back."
Cons: "We waited on tarmac to depart from San Jose Cabo because of an AA paperwork screw up! Tower didn't have same flight info as pilot. The pilot apologized and crew was nice - but I missed my next flight and the replacement flight was delayed 2 hours. Bummer of a way to end an amazing vacation!!"
Cons: "Flight detoured because of weather, had to land in diff city to refuel which made landing 2hrs later than scheduled. Super uncomfortable and extra long flight"

Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."

Cons: "I was a bit annoyed that my TSA Precheck was not included on my return ticket although I purchased the RT tickets through my Allegiant account that has all of that on my profile information. Feel like this should automatically have been added when tickets were purchased."
Cons: "There was no way for us to add another bag after our seat placement. No one answered the phone for Alligent and the website didn’t work. It costs $20 extra to do this at the airport. Even though it was not our fault that there was no one answering phone calls (and no way to leave a message)"

Cons: "information in the reservation part of this app could have been better, my layover was 22 hours long. the 1st time i looked at this flight it was 30 mins long."

Cons: "Media has not been reflective of my great experience."

Fare was $111 compared to around $375 to Orlando. I was able to fit this flight into my scheduled so saved the company $$."
Cons: "Can't blame Allegiant for a noisy child, but there was a child across the aisle from me who shrieked and talked loudly THE WHOLE FLIGHT. I was trying to sleep and was NOT pleased. I like a good fare, but selling a can of Coke on the flight for $2 seems a bit extreme. Glad there are cut-rate airlines out there as an option, but I won't be flying them any more than necessary."
Pros: "We had kids wound up from Disney and caused all kinds of problems. Normally the attendants are irritated, every single one of these remained genuinely polite. I really thought the staff/crew were great. Other than that the flight was fine, a little late, but all went well."
