Pros: "Nothing to like. If I could give them 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Tight connection from our previous flight yet the counter folks were rude and rushed us. My daughter is obviously 7 months pregnant. Because our connecting flight left milwaukee over an hour late, we had no time to even grab a sandwich, no problem we will buy food on the plane. Wrong! The food is was gone so quickly that by the time they got to us, they were out of everything. Oh did I mention we also had 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9. Oh yes and the entertainment? Small screens mounted on the ceiling of the plane. How about updating your equipment?? Plane was old. No USB to charge your phone and stream from their App. Terrible. We own a 2nd home in Maui and travel there twice per year. Looking at other options."
Cons: "Late taking off. Almost missed my connection"
Pros: "I was taking students and we had seats all over but they rearranged so my students could sit together. It was a nice flight with a friendly crew."
Pros: "Everything was very good. Food was good, entertained options were outstanding, crew was all friendly (one attendant got a little short with some customers, but they deserved it)"
Cons: "My seat partner (who, granted, had the middle seat, which is a tough one) was the only negative. Lots of space taken up and liked to laugh at everything in his movies. Loudly."

Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "The waiting time due to the storm and the no communication from the crew . 5 hours strand on the tarmac plus 9 flying."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."
Pros: "They were accommodating to my boot on my foot in the boarding process."
Cons: "Comfort and room in the seats. The temperature was very hot as well."
Pros: "Crew pleasant. Food nice."
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "The 10:50 PM flight was delayed beyond midnight with no prior indication. The reason given was the flight from Dallas delayed due to weather. This looks childish. Why not pay for inconvenience. Is our time and hardship so invaluable?"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."
Pros: "My wife and liked the food selection during both flights. We also liked how one of five flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their job. And also how that one flight attendant made sure we were taken care of."
Cons: "Initially upon arriving in phili, my wife and I boarded the plane and I walked on the plane first than immediately my wife was asked by a flight attendant if she was supposed to be on the flight without any explanation at all, it was weird and disheartening. Also other than one flight attendant actually seemed to enjoy what they were doing, and I am a big customer service man, and some of the attendants didn't seem to care AT ALL at many points, very disappointed. Also he plane that we took out of the United States to go to Ireland was very small, and the plane to return us to the states was very small as well. The flight from our connection in phili to go to Charlotte was the biggest plane we had, just for a two hour ride.. really disaipointsd with American Airlines."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "Quick flight, great service"
Cons: "Was not accommodated for a missed flight"
Cons: "No yves on the plane like delta. Flight delayed 5hrs"
Cons: "Food was horrible. A lot of seats in economy do not work properly and power supplies for cell phones are broken in a few seats. The flight attendants had to assist passengers by manually pushing seats back to up right position. Overall, needs a little remodeling."
Pros: "Boarding was pleasant, flight attendant was very nice. Served several snacks and choice of drinks."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "Flight was very timely (boarding, getting everything ready for take off, & getting to destination & off flight quickly)."
Cons: "Flight attendants in back of plane were rude on several occasions. I'm pregnant & had an almost 2 year old in my lap. I was only given one pretzel & not offered any drink for my son or me. We had 4 people in our row (including my son in my lap), when I let my son walk down the aisle I noticed rows with only 1 person. Flight crew should of asked if someone wanted to move for more space. They ran over the guy's foot across the aisle from me & were rude about it."
Pros: "All personnel where polite,helpful, and respectful. Greg to have wifi and power chargers."
Cons: "There was no real entertainment on the screens. No movies."
Pros: "Crew worked very hard to accommodate our family"
Cons: "We are a very tall crew and the seats were a bit tight."
Pros: "That it reassured me that American is one of the worst airlines"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to the fact that it was an old plane that had problems with the engine. All the passengers were on the plane while they were trying to fix the problem. Then all 250+ passengers had to go to the worst ticket agents ever to try to get new flights. Terrible. Awful. The worst."
Cons: "It was very delayed which I understand happens but then we arrived in San Francisco and were delayed on the runway because of the gate. I think at this point moving us to an open gate would have been nice - we had been delayed for so long - my 8 year old daughter was really having a hard time. Instead we had to sit and wait for 20 more minutes once we were on the ground. This seems avoidable to me."
Pros: "Staff at LAX was helpful and tried helping me get to my next flight by moving me to front of plane at the end of flying."
Cons: "My flight to SFO was delayed so it made me miss my next flight. I ran trying to make it to that gate with a 20 pound backpack on my back, couldn't stop coughing for the rest of the trip after that. American Airlines staff told me that I can pay $75 dollars extra to secure a seat for the next flight 6 hours away. I told them I am not paying anymore because it wasn't my fault I missed this flight. Then, they lost my suitcase so they took 30 minutes to find it. I tried boarding with the priority pass members because my new ticket they gave me was for priority and one of the American Airlines staff members kept getting in my face until I was at the back of the line because I was in boarding group 4. I just never have been treated so poorly before my any airline. I travel often so I will never take American Airlines again. The final straw was another delay at my last layover in PHL, which made me and up traveling for a total of 21 hours."
Cons: "Flight delayed about two hours"
