Cons: "Chicago to Venice flight was amazing. We were in premium economy, although the seats were larger it was hard to sleep in them, we all felt it needed some back support in order to sleep better. Crew was fantastic, would fly AA again internationally"

Pros: "When the plane finally arrived everything went smoothly"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed at least 5x. We started getting delays around 1pm but our flight wasn’t scheduled to leave until 7pm. We were on a connecting flight so it was no chance of making the second leg of our flight. I used an AA discount to get a room in Charlotte but we didn’t get to the airport until almost 2am so I had called to cancel that hour before making it to Charlotte but was told I may still be charged for the room even tho at this point it was outta my control. It would be great if the airline took care of giving you shelter when you are stuck in limbo with no reason behind while you are stuck. American is a good airline but they seriously dropped the ball this trip."

Pros: "Leg room in coach"
Cons: "No movie selection"

Pros: "TB honestly I can’t say I liked anything about this particular flight. So nothing."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by two hours leaving Fort Lauderdale. As a result of that delay I miss my connecting flight to Palm Springs. I was rebooked for a flight to smile Palm Springs the next day which I did not except. Then I was booked to leave Dallas to Los Angeles that flight was delayed also. To make matters worse my bags ended up in LA when they were supposed to be route it all the way to Palm Springs. I still don’t have my bags yet. Called three times and the representatives cannot reassure me of my bags on the way."

Cons: "Small plane"

Pros: "Boarding eas good and crew was very good."

Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."

Thanks to the affordable price I was able to visit my family for the holidays. After all the bad service I always experience from Spirit Arlines this was quite a change.

She was walking around and I told her can you please stop walking around and help me ? At this point the to people that supposed to be helping were so lazy looking at each other . The lado had actitud me , very rude then on top of that they didn't give me my boarding ticket they forgot because they were too busy talking to each other about what I told the lady to stay to help me . I will never fly with this airline. Plus the crew that helps to load and unload the bag they just stand there , I'm with my baby in my hands and bags and they don't even ask can I help you"

Cons: "Cannot believe that the airline is so cheap that all a passenger gets is a half cup of soda. Otherwise you will have to pay for a bag of chips......what's next?"
