Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all"
Pros: "The crew handed out “party favors bags” with bottled water and snacks."
Cons: "The American Airlines app deleted the connecting flight after a Ground Stop delay caused us to arrive after its departure. We were “flying blind” trying to get set up as a standby for a subsequent flight. The process was stressful due to insufficient information."
Cons: "I had my period and desperately needed to use the bathroom. We were told to stay in our seats The entire flight even though there wasn’t much turbulence. The flight attendant yelled at me over the intercom to return to my seat when I tried to get up so I ended up bleeding through my tampon."
Pros: "Boarding crew in Spokane was friendly and very efficient."
Cons: "There were no snacks - they told us they “ran out” on the previous flight and hadn’t refilled yet."
Pros: "Nothing. I missed this flight because of a delay of my flight on Friday."
Pros: "Crew was nice and I was comfortable"
Cons: "Well on the way to Florida I had an entertainment screen that froze and in this flight the screen was blue needing maintenance so it was out of service too."
Pros: "We were allowed to board early with my father, who is disabled."
Cons: "Denver airport was a nightmare with my disabled father. We were given a “wheelchair” but no escort through a nightmarish security scene. Airport is terribly designed, lacking clear signage and navigation. TSA was a disaster and no one seemed remotely concerned about my father’s comfort or needs."
Pros: "We were given sandwiches and drinks when our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We boarded our flight and then told there are maintenance problems. Our flight was delayed 4 hours."
Cons: "Could give more time before baggage and check in. Arrived exactly one hour before flight and ohh my god........ Management however pulled some miracle...."
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "AA is rated next to last in being on time. It shows. Seats were uncomfortable. At least the interactive screen in the seat back worked well, and was informative."
Cons: "The wifi didn't work very well/at all"
Pros: "The crew were very nice and helpful!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 2hrs - but no fault of the airline."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the new AA so-fi"
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Cons: "Jammed plane. At origin we were asked to check carry on at the gate to save overhead space. Bags never made the plane. We had our stubs but when we arrived at destination or at layover none was able to help. Bag tags had been removed at origin and bags were opened to determine who they belonged to. Plus wheelchair had armrest broken off."
Pros: "Best leg room last leg."
Cons: "Nothing specific."
Pros: "I love it"
Pros: "The flight attendants were able to find a place for my carry-on luggage when the overhead bins were filling up. I got a seat with extra leg room by chance (without having to pay the extra fees)."
Cons: "There are no snacks served on the flight. The Philadelphia Airport was overcrowded. There was hardly any room to navigate and there was a long line at nearly every women's bathroom."
Pros: "I liked that we got to San Juan safely. The crew on board was very accommodating."
Cons: "Due to the delays, we missed our jumper flight and American refused to compensate. Also, only had two cookies all day from 8:05am until 3:45 pm! No sandwiches as promised. We were delayed approximately 4 hours total. Had to take a taxi ($85) to Fajardo to HOPEFULLY catch last ferry to Culebra. Guess AmericansAirlines doesn’t care if you have to sleep at the dock!"
Pros: "Flight had very few people on it so everyone could stretch out for the 6 hour flight."
Cons: "The original flight turned around 45 minutes in and I missed my connecting flight. AA refused to try and get me on another flight the same day so I could make it to Sydney on the original day I was supposed to land. We waited 2/3 hours to board a whole new flight, and AA hardly compensated. If anything they should’ve provided a meal at least instead of a bag of pretzels. Flight crew seemed very inconvenienced and it showed."
Cons: "Coach seating is too tight"
Pros: "Flight was one time. Flight crew was also polite and attentive."
Cons: "Plane was more cramped than the flight to Portland, even though both planes were 737's."
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!"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was as expected. 1 star on entertainment as there was none. Would have liked to have been able to get 3 seats together without extra charges."

Pros: "Thank you and keep up the great work"
Cons: "My seat was broken"
Pros: "New plane, all kinds of entertainment choices including new movies, great flight crew, smooth flight."

Pros: "I liked the easy boarding and exiting process. I liked the crew, they are all trained very well and seem to enjoy their jobs."
Cons: "A lot of the planes have not been updated and have poor comfort and entertainment. This is unfortunate, due to the price that we are paying for this travel."
Cons: "Delay due to mechanical glitch which should have been checked before boarding"
Pros: "At least they kept throwing food at us on the plane."
Cons: "Arrived 3 hours early to CDG, and a long line to check a bag. It took so long, eventually they allowed people to cut in line as their flight departure times neared. 2+ hours later, I finally got to a kiosk to print my boarding pass and baggage tag, but now another line to drop off my bag on the conveyor belt. With less than 30 minutes to departure, and still haven't gone through security, I gave up and made my checked bag a carry-on as well. And then tight seats on the plane, with no individual screens (the movie played on a tiny screen 2 rows up in the aisle.)"

Cons: "Only being provided a warm cup of water. Paid extra $$ for seating with no other liberties provided."

Cons: "The seat was extremely comfortable."
Pros: "Quiet. Overnight."
Cons: "no meal, no internet."
Pros: "Was fairly roomy and flights were generally on time"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic- partly because passengers payed little attention to boarding groups and ground crew tried to control it- to little avail. Also, pilot or crew did not tell us what gate we were deplaning at and with short tomes between flights, I need to plan where my next gate is and fastest route there."
Pros: "- approachable staff - plane was insulated enough where I wasn't too cold - ample food options on flight"
Cons: "- plane was older and less comfortable - limited film selection - films only played at certain times so you had to wait in queue until the next showing started"
Cons: "LATAM took our luggage from a flight from a different airline that we used to get from Miami to Orlando. They locked it up and closed before we arrived. My friend was unable to get his medicine, I missed vital time from a work contract, and we had to spend the night at the airport waiting until 1pm today to receive our luggage. This is the worst experience I've had with an airline. No one spoken with on LATAM seemed to care. We were stranded without sleep and got no clear answer from the LATAM hotline. There was no mention of compensation for our troubles. I will not be recommending this airline to other travelers aa this has ruines my work schedule and my friend is unable to get his medicine."
Pros: "General professionalism of crew"
Cons: "Food selection was poor, small quantity, and bad value. Online boarding pass didn't work for return flight first time, but worked a second time."

Cons: "Not enough sodies and I couldn't smell my own farts."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. In fight crew was great."
Cons: "Apparently you can make a reservation for a seat and AA is not required to honor it. They told us that you reserve a seat but you get your seat assignment when you check in to your flight. Apparently many people can make a reservation for one seat and the first person to check in gets it. My husband and I were very upset when we found this out. Especially since we went through many hoops to get a good seat assignment."
Pros: "Pleasant travels. Small plane"
Cons: "Somewhat cramped. Very difficult getting seat assignment. Website confusing."
Pros: "Check in was done on my phone, boarding passes there too. Very convenient. On time, smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Did not use entertainment. Asked for a cup of hot tea and got a cup of of coffee with a tea bag in it. Must have been because it was such an early morning flight! Didn't get biscuiit either! When I gave full cup to attendant collecting them and told her what was in the cup she never said a word or offered fresh cup."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination"
Cons: "AA changed my flight plans which resulted in a 4.5 hour layover in Philly. The gates were filthy, there is not much selection for in-flight food and nothing for entertainment. I couldn't even find an outlet that worked at the gate."
Pros: "The pilot was very helpful And his crew extremely nice to me with much patients thank god for that crew"
Cons: "I never was looking forward to not having the help I solely deserved when in dallis as I needed help with my wheel Cheer there was no help available to me so I had to do everything completely alone as the pilot and his crew helped me out of the Aircraft entering into Chicago I thank god for that crew I fliy often however this was so unreal what I had to indure when headed back home to Scottsdale' AZ after visiting my husband in Columbus Ohio perhaps I'll find another airline to use hopefully ii will get the help I truly need"
Pros: "The condition and appearances of everything was pretty standard"
Cons: "Delays delays delays! Both flights were delayed and while sitting on the runway waiting to take off the captain said we had a maintenance issue. WHAT!

Pros: "Smooth flight no delays"

We had to go from terminal B to C by wheelchair for my Dad then by electric cart to get to our next gate. We barely made it. They were boarding when we got to the gate. On our flight to our destination we were given the wrong gate and terminal. We actually were supposed to go from terminal E to B at opposite ends of the airport. We missed our connectio and had to be teschuled 6 hrs later. Then that flight was cancelled and we had to pay for a hotel and missed a whole day of our trip.
