Cons: "First time we have flown First Class on American Airlines and service was outstanding and perfect! Thank you for an amazing experience!!"

Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"

Pros: "On-time, crew was nice."
Cons: "Seats are too tight. Board from the outsides in, not front to back. Windows seats in the back go first (after first class, ADA, etc), and fill the cheap seats back to front. As it is, literally everyone with an aisle seat ends up on first and overheads fill before people have a chance to know, requiring a lot of against-the-flow foot traffic and delays pushing away from gate."

Pros: "On time, main cabin extra was great, crew was nice, entertainment was great."
Cons: "No criticism"

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

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a missing officer. Because of this, I missed my flight from Chicago to Narita Japan. I had to cancel the hotel in Japan and pay $120 cancellation fee. The customer service changed my flight to go to Dallas/Fort Worth TX then fly to Narita Japan next day. They gave me vouchers for hotel stay and meal ($12) which are absolutely minimal compensation after all this headaches. They were unable to upgrade my seat since they’re full. Now the flight to Narita is 2 hour delay and they have changed the gate at least twice. I’m worried if I can get on the next connecting flight to Sapporo due to this delayed schedule. I feel like this whole trip is ruined because the delayed flight from Philadelphia to Chicago. This has been my worst and the most ridiculous flight experience ever. I don’t think I ever want to fly with American Airlines in the future."

Cons: "Of the 4 FA only 2 were pleasant. The others were short and accusatory, not with me but other passengers not okay American"

Cons: "Absolutely horrible plane. This 737-700 sucks. I’m in premium economy and it’s horrible. Very narrow seats. Very tight. Horrible. At airport American Airlines jfk ground crew were non existent when the aircraft pulled into the gate."

Pros: "Crew was nice, entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food was mediocre"

Pros: "Once boarding, we didn’t wait long for take off."
Cons: "Being on time."

Pros: "Nice aircraft once I got to Texas. From my hometown the plane was kind of old."
Cons: "Well they lost my luggage after my original flight was delayed 2+ hours. Rebooked my flight but never communicated to me whether they would handle my bag transfer or if I needed to go get them myself From the baggage claim to put into the correct flight. So I had no clothes..."

Pros: "no"
Cons: "on time departure"

Cons: "Wider seating"

Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"

Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
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: "Our extra legroom premium seats didn’t feel like we had much more room. No TVs, WiFi that didn’t work...left a lot to be desired. I know the standards are pretty low in the US compared to other countries, but for a plane that seemed relatively new, the lack of standard technology seemed cheap."

Pros: "Everything worked out well and plane arrived 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Seemed like it took longer than average to get bags from baggage claim."

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: "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: "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: "We were delayed, but still arrived almost on time at our destination"
Cons: "Delay due to weather."

Pros: "Entertainment selection"
Cons: "Minimal leg room Not allowed to bring bag aboard. Told bins were full even though there was AMPLE Space in the overhead in my row. Onboard crew unhelpful. Baggage intended for carry on got “temporarily” delayed 45 min additional at baggage claim. wait was 1 1/2 hours."

Pros: "We arrived to LAX at the same scheduled time and the pilots were very informative when we might have turbulence."
Cons: "Head phone jack was broken, was told by one attendant that they would fix it. He never came back, told someone else and they said sorry, there was an open seat 6 rows back. Was not going to have my son sitting by himself. Knowing that you have to check many things prior to the flight, maybe have a back up plan for something like this."

Cons: "Entertainment via internet could NEVER be really be done complitly. And the flight attendants did not know how to help costumers"

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

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"

Cons: "seats are very cramped"

Pros: "I was under the weather and she was very very very helpful Mary and all AA flight attendants are great I will fly AA as often as I can because of Mary"

Cons: "Six “10 min delays” that led to a 1 hr plus delay"

Pros: "The pilot was great. Avoided turbulence and arrived about 20min early. Easy to find seat and stow bag. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Alaska airlines was who I thought I was riding with but the itinerary changed past min. Gate change and the airline itself was changed. Really confusing since I printed my boarding pass the night before."

Cons: "The baggage customer service said the crew will wait for us, but they never did. THANKS for NOTHING!"

Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."

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: "Boarding on time and arrived to my destination on time."
Cons: "no comment"

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

Cons: "Delayed flight, multiple gate changes"

Pros: "Almost empty in economy"
Cons: "I liked everything"

Pros: "Friendly flight attendant and arrival earlier than expected"
Cons: "There was nothing not to like. We took off on time, had no turbulence, friendly service and landed early."

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

Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."

Pros: "Boarding was quick, but rushed."
Cons: "- plane was extremely hot, no A/C until boarding was complete and on the runway. So about 45 minutes of heat. - no entertainment units - no food, just pretzels and cookies, one drink - seats not comfortable, even with Main Cabin Extra"

Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."

Cons: "I believe the flight was delayed due to weather. This resulted In my seat being given away on my connecting flight."

Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."

Pros: "This trip of 7hrs with AA was excellent customer service. I was very surprised, I loved it!!!"

Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."

Pros: "Got us on the flight and in the air fast."
Cons: "They had plane issues and then the flight was delayed and then they changed our gates."

Cons: "Jetway should not be backed up all the way to the counter. Stop calling so many groups for boarding without knowing that no one is actually getting onboard. Force subsequent groups to step aside until called."
