Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"

Cons: "Usual uncomfortable seating. Plane was not pulled into a gate. DCA should be an embarrassing operation for American."

Pros: "4 flights and all of them in middle uncomfortable seats. I requested aisle seats many times and counter agents were unhelpful and rude."
Cons: "Better seat options and more comfortable seats"

Pros: "I liked the big 787 plane and the in flight entertainment with individual TVs!"
Cons: "Not a huge fan of the captive audience announcements for the credit card and the meal pre-orders"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for hours, and I am still trying to get to lax. All due to the pilots being too tired to fly, and due to maintenance. I would of appreciated checking into a hotel room a lot earlier than I did due to vague communication. I’m exhausted with only 2.5 hours of sleep."

Cons: "Better food"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "There was a technical difficulty with the plane, which made a short delay in our flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "At this stage, you cannot use such an old plane for an overseas 8 hour flight. The plane was so old it even had the cigarrete disposers on the arm rest and it didn't have TVs not power outlets."

Cons: "Flight arrived over 40 min late and despite my connecting flight still being connected to the gate I was told I couldn’t board. There were 5 people trying to connect to the same flight so it’s pretty rediculous that we were told to rebook when the plane didn’t leave the gate for 15 more minutes. This was the call of the airline and it was handled poorly. The rebooking agent was also extremely rude and seemed totally self absorbed. This was my worst flying experience out of approximately 50 flights this year. Never again American."

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"
Cons: "cost to check baggage"

Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."

Pros: "departure and arrival time"
Cons: "the passenger next to me smelled horrible"

Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Nothing special just another flight another day"
Cons: "AA...they delayed flights and were very unprofessional. i will definitely choose BA over AA anyday."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Cons: "Received an email 6 min after booking from British Airways saying the reservation was cancelled. They are trying to charge me $550 for this cancellation claiming they are not the ones who cancelled the reservation, and that I did. From what I understand the flight wasn't available in the first place and should not have been posted to purchase. British Airways will not take responsibility however."

Cons: "There was a glitch in the system with our boarding passes. It got sorted out but was just kind of weird."

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: "We didn't go to Dallas!"
Cons: "We didn't like the London Airport and we didn't get enough to eat and drink. We flew from London to Seattle Airport (SEA). From there we had to take an Alaska Air Flight to Salt Lake City (SLC) We had a difficult time finding the terminal for our flight to (SLC). . Alaska Air Broke one of the wheels on my suit case."

Pros: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."
Cons: "Instead of British, my plane was changed to AA. The plane was very old and outdated. For a long international trip, it was disappointing and scary at the same time. No personal monitors, no phone or iPad charger, dirty and old bathrooms.... just disappointing."

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "extremely friendly, smiling, and helpful service by the flight attendants, comfortable upgraded first class seat, timely arrival."
Cons: "No food service other than snack/ junk food."

Pros: "Crew updates during a technical issue investigation."
Cons: "This plane is very small for an international flight, and it does not have the proper entertainment system for long flights. To top it off, the plane was very smelly; I got a headache because of it. We also had to return to the gate due to a technical issue and ended up leaving almost two hours late, which defeated the purpose of picking this flight over the rest as it was the one that was supposed to land in Milan the earliest. I will be careful next time I pick a flight to check what kind of airplane they're using. My assumption that international flights have the best airplanes seems to be wrong :(."

Pros: "I am not comfortable flying so for me, flying makes me nervous"

Cons: "A hot breakfast would have been nice."

Pros: "Easy boarding"
Cons: "Would you like a beverage? Not unless you asked and that was only if you could get her attention. Truly felt like a second class citizen in this fight"

Cons: "My flight was delayed. I felt lucky when they gave me a place in a plane leaving 1 hour earlier. But that flight was delayed twice because of mechanical problems: the first time we had to go back to the gate and the second time we stayed on the runway just before take off Not enough room in overhead bins. They asked people to check small suitcase or bag."

Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."

Pros: "There was surprisingly a great amount of legroom"

Pros: "Great service from flight attendants and smooth flight, take off and landing."

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."

Pros: "The middle seat was empty I had an aisle seat. That was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi screens for books or movies but I had my iPhone."

Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."

Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."

Cons: "The sound did not work in my assigned seat. I could not watch any movies or partipate in any games."

Cons: "Delay No direction help for the gate Bad seats"

Cons: "Seemed like most people had the same boarding group so the queue was a cluster"

Pros: "Entertainment, 110 plugins for devices, internet."
Cons: "only free meal option was cinnamon cookies."

Cons: "They squeezed me into a new plane after saying there was absolutely no way for me to get home... hmm."
