Pros: Thanks Jennifer, my flight attendant
Cons: Under the current health emergency the whole crew went above and beyond. Thank you!

Pros: Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: The crew was so friendly and helpful and nice. Love the whole online entertainment thing that AA does now.
Cons: There was an awful flight delay and the reschduling options sucked at first. Once that got sorted to my liking, however, everything else was perfect

Pros: Free reschedule of flight.
Cons: Flight was cancelled for no reason.

Pros: Crew
Cons: Decaf tea

Cons: On the first leg of my journey, there was a card explaining how to get inflight entertainment using the which worked great. However the Phoenix to Eugene leg used Boingospot but there was no card in the seat pocket explaining what needed to be put in your browser to access the entertainment portal. There were only two flight attendants on the flight and, aside from the drink service, no one ever came to the back of the plane so I could ask the question. I could have used the call button but I think that should be saved for emergencies. I think the information on how to access the inflight entertainment should be in every seat pocket

Pros: Like the multiple USB charging outlets and the mobile device holder on the backrest

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: I will NEVER fly UNAmerican Airlines again.
Cons: Everything. Overbooked flight, no room, no comfort, no entertainment. Not even a usb port to charge anything. I paid for a carry on bag and was approached repeatedly to have my bag checked in due to overcrowding and no room for carry on bags.

Pros: entertainment, seat space (main cabin extra)
Cons: meal service more suitable for daily flight (breakfast first and lunch last)

Pros: The ground crew were very courteous but I feel they were not being completely honest regarding the delays. It felt like we were being given false hope that the flight was taking off soon.
Cons: We were boarded thinking we were taking off soon. Except the delay continued for another hour and a half I found out. I had exited the plane having been given the option of staying in Gainesville in a hotel provided by the airline and being booked on a flight the next day.

Pros: Crew professional and competent

Pros: It was a red eye. So good to be seated, quiet. not too crowded.
Cons: It was really GOOD overall.

Pros: Flying is not fun… The seats are too close together making it very difficult to stand up to enter or exit the aisle!

Pros: Captain asked passengers not making close connections to allow passengers with connections to deplane first was very helpful.
Cons: Flight left late and arrived late making my connection in Philadelphia for a flight to Budapest a very close call.

Pros: The boarding process was not complicated and my moved along in an orderly fashion.
Cons: Make the seats more comfortable! Especially on long fights where the risk of blood clots are higher.

Cons: Ticket agent was rude and 3 flights later found a super sweet ticket agent but 10 hours longer to get to my destination

Cons: Air conditioning

Cons: To hot in the back of the plane

Pros: Early arrival!

Pros: Super-friendly, easy-to-understand crew
Cons: Too short of a flight for WiFi or snacks

Pros: Friendly service, quality new airplane, American airlines has improved a lot!

Pros: Deplaning in White Plains
Cons: Boarding the way there, they did not honor my AA Advantage card to board earlier because my boarding pass did not say so. Even after seeing it said so in the computer system, they refused to honor it. So this time, I gave up and boarded with the last group. No prior warning was given that this plane would not allow for carry on luggage in overhead bins. Further were no charging ports on board, no free WiFi, no adjustable headrests, and the seats did not recline. There were no kosher cookies.

Pros: Crew was personable and proactive in settling families in and helping with luggage. Funny and helpful. Movie choices were great! We were early to gate.
Cons: It was a very long check in process in Madrid, and 45 minutes more to gate. I think it may just be layout of Madrid airport, but I would suggest to anyone getting to airport a minimum of 3.5 hours before flight.

Pros: They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip.
Cons: They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion.

Pros: Just about everything was wonderful. Flight crew was great, infotainment centers are always a plus, and the seats are better than I remember (don’t get excited, slightly).
Cons: This was considered an international flight, as we discovered when we were directed to the international terminal. It was also a 6 hour flight so... where was the food?! We could pay upwards of $10 for 3-4 options, none of which were 100% kid friendly. What’s up with that?

Pros: Food was good. Staff was polite.
Cons: Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified.

Pros: The crew was friendly
Cons: The staff wouldn't except my registration for my support animal!!

Pros: Entertainment, food, comfort, competence of staff, cleanliness of restrooms - all good. We were seated separately per the booking, and at the gate, the staff there managed to get us together.
Cons: Was impossible to sleep, but that's par for the course these days. It was a full flight.

Pros: The seats were comfy and spacious.

Pros: Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful.
Cons: Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable.

Pros: Turbulence most of the way. The breakfast homlet was horrible.
Cons: Change the food. Better headsets in business class. The seats could be updates in business class.

Pros: Was impressed with the legroom, and complimentary in-flight entertainment. I am a big dude (6'4" - 230lbs), and I found it enjoyable to have room for my knees (I feel like there are a number of airlines where my knees are in the seat in front of me). The crew were very pleasant; they worked to move the people in my row so I wouldn't have to be squished between another guy (also a big dude).
Cons: I wish the snacks were better. I would love some complimentary fruit options.

Pros: Best fligh I had in some time. Left on time, arrived early very attentitive crew (with smiles as they worked through the rear cabin - wish I had their names to give recognition for/to). Food rating should have had a ‘NA’ as I nor partner did not consume any food.
Cons: Can’t think of one thing - unless a flying saucer could have delivered me like in about 5 minutes to Cabo! Ok - maybe one thing: charging for a checked bag on international flight seems rediculous (you asked).

Cons: The fact that my original seats were not given. The other issue was that Alaska wasn’t my airline but American was. They didn’t even tell me until I got to the gate, moved over to another and then got transferred over to my gate.

Cons: Not enough food to feed all passengers and the service was very slow.

Pros: seat was comfortable. flight almost on time food was poor
Cons: food was poor

Pros: The food was great! The entertainment was great! I had enough space!

Pros: Nothing
Cons: The staff encouraged me to get on my first delayed flight because my second was delayed as well. But as I landed from my first flight the second flights delay was reversed and I had no notification of this change. I missed my connecting flight. Had to stay in the airport all night, had to fly into a different destination at 7 am. No explanations, no help. Terrible.

Cons: Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes.

Pros: Friendly and attentive crew. On time.
Cons: Upgraded seat to be more comfortable. Very, very cold. Uncomfortable cold. Apparently it was an old plane and adjustments to temperature were difficult. No individual tv screens. At one point the steward lost control of drink cart and crashed into my personal headphones which he broke.

Pros: Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised.
Cons: Landing was ROUGH

Cons: Never enough leg room!

Pros: Great entertainment my second leg with personal TVs and great selection of movies and games. Also got great exit row seating for no additional price!

Pros: I understand that the breakfast cookies are economical, and many people enjoy them, but can we add some variety or switch things up sometime, pleeeeease. My kids love the cookies. thanks Jesse
Cons: The cookies

Pros: They were able to arrange for a seat for my daughter who was technically a lap child. The crew were courteous and helpful. The flight arrived early.
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: Provided overnight hotel for cancelled flight
Cons: Cancelled two flight connections to Austin from Phoenix.

Pros: I am very grateful for the pilots who quickly turned around and immediately flew for us. Even though they weren't the ones scheduled to pilot my plane, they did and had a good additive about it.
Cons: There was a lot of turbulence in the flight that had no warning at all. I was walking in an aisle when it started and almost fell and would've appreciated more advanced notice. It was a bummer that the flight was delayed, but that happens and I understand it.

Pros: Good service from the flight attendants.
Cons: BA and AA don't have their computers coordinated so if you book on BA, but the flight is on AA, your booking reference number for check in, etc., does not work. You have to call customer care for AA to get their booking reference number.

Pros: the flight was great and comfortable
