And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."

Cons: "The seats are so cramped - not just on this flight but on ALL flights. It’s especially hard on my husband who is larger than I am. Airline cre, food and entertainment made up for the space but US airlines should re-think this sardine approach to flying. Sorry to vent. Thank you."

As a result the hour flight was an hour and a half. The pilot kept us informed and it was a very smooth flight. So even though I was over an hour late arriving I so appreciated the communications and the safer route. AA seems to be communicating more than other airlines and I appreciate that.

Cons: "American Airlines baggage check-in at Paris CDG was total chaos. It took 1 1/2 hours. They need a systems analyst to review their process; especially for customers using their ticket kiosks during check-in when the lines get long. There's never a problem when the lines are small (duh !!). The staff involved in baggage check did well considering the poor process flow they had to deal with. The entire flight crew was great. It is management that is falling down on the job."

Cons: "Check in was total chaos. Food was horrible."

Cons: "Check in was the worst. 1.75 hours just to check bags. Barely made flight when arriving 3 hours before"
Pros: "The crew was great, very attentive."
Cons: "A flight from Paris to Miami is 9 Hours without delays. We had bad weather so it was 11 hours. There's no excuse for inflight video not working. If I'd paid for First Class you can bet I'd be comped something. But for the rest of us, TFB!. Such is the way of airline travel, you pay for a product you don't entirely get."
