The economy seats are smaller than on other planes we've flown in; my husband could not fit his legs in his own leg area and was miserable the entire flight. And only one small snack for a 6 hour flight?"

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Pros: "The digital entertainment was off the chart. It kept me awake during the whole flight. A flight feels shorter when one becomes entertain instead of nodding off and on, which makes the flight feels longer than it really was."
Cons: "I am vegan. So I guess I am minority for now, but I hope some of the food in the futures also cater to those of us that don't eat any type of animal product. One only can hope!."

Cons: "See above"
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "AC was not working. Bathrooms were inoperative for the second time. They also didn't work when flew out of EWN to start our trip. American Eagle aircraft must have some major maintenance issues!"
Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."
Cons: "Boarding took forever, the flight was over 2 hours late which caused me to miss my connecting flight and my military orders were not honored - I still had to pay extra to take all my gear back to my duty station. Never had that issue with any other American airline."
Pros: "We enjoyed the movies and games available, lots of leg room and had a lot of food to hold us over. The flight was long but very smooth."
Cons: "I did have to lay for my seat or I would have had to get a middle seat."
Cons: "I did not like the head rest, very uncomfortable"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
Pros: "I missed my previous flight, and even before that my day was going pretty bad. I was quickly routed to the desk to get a replacement ticket, and even though the flight was oversold, they had me wait around until the plane was ready to take off. A couple minutes after they shut the door of the boarding bridge, I was called and told to follow one of them. It turns out a couple of people were headed to the right city in the wrong country."
Pros: "The safety"
Cons: "We were stuck from 11 pm to 9am at the airport without food (nothing at the airport was open and nothing was nearby). We did not get the hotel promised. The plane was very small and uncomfortable. I felt sick."
