Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Flight was cancelled for no reason."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was almost on time."
Cons: "The power outlet at my seat didn't work. The baggage was delivered to the wrong carousel at DFW. The seats are TOO DAMN SMALL."
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: "It was a red eye. So good to be seated, quiet. not too crowded."
Cons: "It was really GOOD overall."
Pros: "I liked absolutely nothing about my flight to Richmond."
Pros: "Ne’er front of plane for easy on/off. Payed extra for extra leg room."
Cons: "Flight attendants were overworked on a full flight."
Cons: "On time departure. Meal service."
Cons: "Ticket agent was rude and 3 flights later found a super sweet ticket agent but 10 hours longer to get to my destination"
Pros: "Serial delays of over 3 hours are truly annoying. 8 delays is just not real. It avoids rebooking for the airline. I got home at 330am which is just not right at 68 years of age."
Cons: "Communicate. This is the 5th flight with serial 30 minute delays. Crazy poor. Would not be accepted in any other industry. There is no recourse as a consumer."
Cons: "Wi-Fi was spotty."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great, plane was comfortable and clean"
Cons: "No WiFi, it was delayed, bags came off a different belt so we didn’t find them for 30 minutes... but at least we found them"
Pros: "New plane, more headroom made the cabin feel more spacious! Friendly flight crew! Loads of entertainment options....free! USB ports in every seat!"
Cons: "Traveling in coach is never comfortable. Fan was difficult to direct, and air flow was not especially strong."
Pros: "staff was very nice. boarding was on time and efficient"
Cons: "no screens to watch movies. the plane was delayed for a repair and we had to sit on the plane for two hours before we took off. they should of let us off the plane during this time. because of this the flight felt longer. there was no choice of movie because there was only the screen in the isle. the food was horrible for dinner. the smell made me feel sick and the taste was worse. a sandwich might of been better than that disgusting hot food."
Pros: "Ease of boarding with the group numbers"
Pros: "The seats were comfy and spacious."
Cons: "No airline has trans Atlantic flights without personal entertainment anymore. I expect it and am super disappointed when I don’t get my movies."
Pros: "Flight was safe and uneventful"
Cons: "Limited space and I had a better seat Just beverage service - not even crackers offered No entertainment options Seat recline mechanism was faulty"
Cons: "The landing was pretty rough. One of the roughest I’ve ever experienced. I thought we were skidding for a minute. The pilot pulled the brakes super hard"
Pros: "The cabin crew was great at boarding and organizing the overhead bin space. Also, ground staff didn’t start check roll aboards before the overheads bins were full. There is nothing more frustrating than getting on after forced to gate check your bag to empty bin space (ahem, United at SFO)."
Cons: "Couldn’t get the entertainment to work."
Pros: "Service was fine and the crew members were professional. Everything you would expect in a standard flight"
Cons: "Price tag to travel within the country was more expensive than transatlantic flights despite leaving from a major hub. Wouldn’t allow carry lbs either. If you’re going to fly basic economy, might as well just do spirit and save several hundred dollars."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "issues FA ran out of Mexican immigration forms."
Cons: "No TV nor entertainment of any type. Food choice terrible. I am allergic to shellfish and the other option was pasta which I don’t eat. Had to feed on two cups of nuts... really mediocre."
Pros: "Lovely service on the plane, I fly every other week or so and it was a relatively easy travel day."
Cons: "Lost connection because previous flight was too late , had long wait. The space in the seat on the plane were quite small and the plan looked old, or not updated. It didn't have individual screen monitor for entertainment , which I think nowadays is expected; especially for a coast to coast flight."
Pros: "Comfortable and smooth"
Pros: "Overall flight was great. Crew, pilot, flight attendants, boarding, everyone and everything was great. Drinks and snacks were offered."
Cons: "No seat back entertainment. 45 mins flight from San Antonio to Dallas had seatback entertainment. But 2hr flight from Dallas to Cozumel had no seatback entertainment. Go figure."
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We had to walk outside to board the plane. My husband has two bad hips and we had to walk up a flight of stairs to board the plane. The plane was extremely small and our sits were located in the rear of the plane. The bathroom had an unpleasant odor."
Pros: "Nothing very unhelpful staff also very rude"
Cons: "How they sell a ticket without seats available?? Very unpleasant flight! I will never buy through kayak.com and never will flight with American Airlines again"
Pros: "The seats weren't bad and there was enough space for my carry on and personal bag"
Cons: "It was so hot the entire flight and the overhead air was very low pressure that it didn't even feel it touch my head. The person next to me had very bad odor and was hoping the air would clear it for me but it didn't because the overhead air was so low."
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful."
Pros: "The Staff was excellent"
Cons: "I cant believe you have a seat that is exactly parallel to the bathroom in addition to the seat being in am exit aisle so the seat didn't recline. Lastly there should be outlets on flights longer than 3 hours. There is no excuse American Airline"
Cons: "We booked a round-trip flight on AA from Philadelphia to Dublin. Due to changes in our travel plans we revised our flight dates. The phone customer service rep who helped me make the changes, assured me that the AA policy was to group families together after she informed me that I could not choose our seat assignments at that time. Arriving at the Philadelphia airport, we used the self service kiosk to check-in. The issued boarding passes put my wife and me in different rows on one side of the plane, and our nine year old son on the other. I asked a roving AA customer service rep if it would be possible to change our seat assignments and explained what we were told when rebooking. She waved vaguely in the direction of the baggage counter, and told us we could change our seats when checking our baggage. We brought out baggage to the counter and informed the customer service rep working there what we were told by the kiosk and phone representatives. She immediately yelled at us and told us to calm down, even though we were merely asking and explaining. Each time we attempted to explain our situation or ask where we could seek assistance, she bristled. Finally, she told us we should go to the main check-in counter because she could not change seat assignments. The check-in counter rep was very brusque. She said she could not change anything because we had boarding passes and should accept the locations because it was an international flight; however we could ask at the gate if changes could be made. At the gate, service was provided for three flights - Dublin, London, and Manchester(?). We stood briefly in line and were motioned up to a desk for the London flight. I informed the customer service rep that we were travelling to Dublin, and what we were told by the previous AA representatives. Without checking to see if was possible to seat the three of us together, he told us that he could only put my wife and son together. Somewhat relieved, we asked him to revise their seat locations. He made the changes and handed us our new boarding passes. As we walked away from the counter, I noticed that the new boarding passes were for the London flight and did not have my wife's or son's names. We returned to the counter and told him that there had been mistakes made. He immediately snatched the passes from us and berated us for not telling him that we were not going to London. I told him that we had told him of our destination as soon as we approached the counter. He retrieved our original passes from the trash and told us to wait for the Dublin flight reps to arrive. Immediately, I called the AA toll-free number and informed the phone agent of all that had happened. She was able to locate two seats together for my wife and son, and told me to inform the gate reps of the information. Because of character limitations I cannot tell of the counter rep who was an angel and managed to seat the three of us together. Thank you!!!"
Pros: "We arrived safe."
Cons: "The plane had been on the ground for 6 hours prior boarding time, yet we leave until 1 hour late. Waited for the food to be loaded and then waited for paperwork to be signed. Really?"
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Cons: "No screens, no wifi"
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: "Flight operated safely and on time. American is trying to be better."
Cons: "Never enough overhead storage space when flight attendants bring three carryons and passengers can only bring two. The Group Zone boarding process is an improvement. Captain not very informative about the plane's route of flight and some of the major cities the that we flew over."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3.5 hours while the crew cleaned up a fuel spill and we waited for a different co-pilot."
Cons: "I strongly believe they cancelled our flight due to lack of passengers. The plane was sitting on the runway. I boarded for almost two hours for a flight of only one hour away. They were holding plane to fill with those already scheduled for the next flight?"
Cons: "I had reserved seats 31A and 15C for my flights 1561 and 6779, goinf Frankfurt to Dallas, and Dallas to San Jose. The charge for reserving seats was $182.03. Instead, I was put in mid-row seats 42D and 24E, on both flights. No notification or explanations from American Airlines or Kayak, and no refund...yet. Any comments?"
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "The A321 had the most cramped seating I've ever experienced. The video in the seat back didn't work properly going or coming back. Boarding was slow. I don't know why they don't load the rear seats first so you don't have to wait for everyone ahead to secure their carry-on luggage. If they didn't charge so much for checking a bag there wouldn't be so much carry-on baggage"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "Kind and attentive crew"
Cons: "Was a bit delayed"
Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."
Cons: "I had to leaves Denver early due to my granddaughter needing help. To sees switch returns my ticket it would cost me me $200.00 but it could get a retire ticket for that day for $40.00. Why couldn't that dollar amount come of my ticket . That was just crazy"
Pros: "From the onset of booking the flight, checking in, the crew. And the The soft landing!!"
