Cons: "4 hour mechanical delay and shitty communication"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "It’s a commuter. It’s tiny. In flight left trash with us till plane was about to land. Pilots seemed inexperienced. Landing was hard, braking was hard approach was awkward and it was a beautiful day with no wind. Pilot shortage isn’t helping the regionals."

Cons: "Paid extra for six inches of leg room but the seats recline 2 inches. Not comfortable. TV touch screen did not work."
Pros: "Nice aircraft,"
Cons: "let down by unattentive staff and felt more like a budget airline with the fact that you have to pay for meals"
Pros: "The Admirals Club in Paris is lovely."
Cons: "My seat did not work properly- there was a short in the mechanism, I believe- that required repeated attempts to get it to recline completely, which was ultimately unsuccessful. I was clearly having difficulty with the seat but didn't receive any assistance while FA chatted up a celebrity in the seat in front of me. Flight attendants seemed to provide very perfunctory service, not commensurate with first class. Very disappointing experience compared to others in the past. I don't need to spend half a zillion FF miles when I could just buy a coach seat."
Pros: "Since air travel holds little charm for those of us who ride in economy class, my expectations are pretty low. The crew was polite and there were no delays."
Cons: "The food was typically low quality."
Pros: "Got to my destination without any delays"
Cons: "I booked a window seat and sat by a wall instead with no window. Seats were very cramped."
Pros: "Smooth at GRR. A little Delay in CLT. It was a good experience because we weren't on a deadline to be somewhere."
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly helpful airline atendents."
Pros: "everything was on tyime"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Jet bridge was broken and needed repair. Delayed departure."
Pros: "That I arrived safely"
Cons: "I did not like the departure delay from 6:05 to about 9:50. Why did have to wait so long for a pilot to come, and then further wait for a flight attendant to arrive"
Pros: "The cabins are very cold and the seats stiff. Food was just dry pretzels and soda, coffee etc. Landing was smooth. I just wish more information was given as to why we were delayed etc."
Pros: "The flight crew was exetrmely helpful"
Cons: "Even for a more room seat it was a bit tight"
