Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Quick flight time even though we left late."
Cons: "Needed larger plane. The passengers were smashed together in small seats."
Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."
Cons: "Getting food service back on plains."
Cons: "DCA poorly organized"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and well organized. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "By the time the snack service was completed, the plane was already descending and the crew had to pick up the service items before people had a chance to finish."
Pros: "I've been flying Spirit lately to save money, so know that this is my comparison. American Airlines staff were friendly and helpful, the website was easy to use for things such as changing seats and adding bags, and I really appreciate the updates from AA via email and text. I appreciate the snack."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Amazing crew and boarding process (given our priority status), great food throughout the flight."
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Cons: "They need to have better policies for morbidly obese seat mates who feel entitled to lift the arm rest and take over a good part of the neighboring seat. With a full flight, the attendants couldn’t change our seats and said that they realized I was out a horrible situation"
Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."
Cons: "The seats are so cramped - not just on this flight but on ALL flights. It’s especially hard on my husband who is larger than I am. Airline cre, food and entertainment made up for the space but US airlines should re-think this sardine approach to flying. Sorry to vent. Thank you."
Cons: "The flight was booked. A lot of families were separated. It included family with the small children. Passengers were running around asking to change the seats. The entertainment system was very slow. The sound made cracking noises. The flight was over two hours late. In addition, we had to wait for our luggage over 40'. The luggage was wet."
Pros: "Second flight had more comfortable seating in comparison to our first flight."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Plane was a little bigger from Grand Rapids and they moved us around to balance the plane and a lot of us got better seats."
Pros: "Mostly really friendly crew members. Plane seemed new, first and business class looked lovely."
Cons: "Wihout question, the most uncomfortable seat ive ever been in. It was obviously a newer plane, long haul flight, and thw configuration maximized space for more passengers. Width of economy seat was tightest I've ever experienced, with the arms of the seats literally right at my legs, nearlt digging in. The leg room was very short with my knees nearly touching the back of the seat in front of me. When i put my tray down, it actually rested on my knees, and was not level because it pitched up due to longer legs (and I'm only 5'9). This was a long haul, 8 hour flight. I've never beeñ so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and have never counted the minutes I could get out. Seemed obvuous that meal service had taken a hit when corporate looked for places to cut expenses, its one of the lower quality meals. If compared with an international carrier, the food was really sub par. Mostly really friendly crew members, unfortunately, one who really didnt seem to enjoy the job any longer."
Pros: "Only one screaming kid. I was allowed to move to another seat"
Cons: "Food was good. Crew nice"
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."
Pros: "Nothing about the flight we screwed around before takeoff, in the air as well as on the ground. Wasted an hour and a half, missed my connection"
Cons: "Seat was uncomfortable, no entertainment, barely a snack. Sadness."
Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"
Cons: "The Avianca flight was canceled a month ago, and kayak failed to notify me."
Pros: "Once we finally departed the flight timing was excellent."
Cons: "This was the first flight out. Flight was delayed and there was no gate agent that communicated why the flight was delayed. When we were finally able to board, it was NOT done by group number and thus I had to check my bag."
Pros: "Boarding was fast!"
Cons: "The staff was not great! When I had just arrived to the gate, they had already called group 5 so I went up and presented my boarding pass and the crew made a facial expression of annoyance since group 5 was called and they were boarding group 7. When I entered the plane, one of the staff just looked at me twice without saying hello back. I said it twice and the same lady gave me a cold goodbye when I was leaving the plane. There was no entertainment!!!! Also, no plug to charge my phone that I had to wait to charge my phone after getting my bags to contact a taxi driver (Lyft)."
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Really unconfortable seats."
Pros: "Newer plane and one very friendly male flight attendant."
Cons: "Aside from one younger male flight attendant the service was terrible. They did not pick up garbage and ran out of meal selections. One flight attendant by the name of Valerie was incredibly rude. I would recommend American Airlines invest in younger and more professional flight attendants."
Pros: "Gate attendant kept us informed frequently as to the status of the flight"
Cons: "Rudeness/snappiness of the stewardesses"
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."
Cons: "Never enough leg room!"
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly American Airlines again"
Pros: "The meals were good and the flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. The seat my husband was sitting in (30A window seat), the touch screen seemed to have some technical issues, for it did not recognize when you touch the screen. It was a bit frustrating trying to select entertainment. Also, when checking in from our original departure location, MCO, we were not provided our boarding pass or luggage tags for our final destination, Barcelona, only to our connecting flight, Philadelphia. The connecting flight was delayed in MCO for an 1 hour and a half, after we have boarded the plane, therefore almost cost us to be late for our final flight to Barcelona. Since we were not given our boarding passes for PHL to BCL it caused confusion when trying to board our plane in PHL to Barcelona, and also caused for our baggage to not arrive with the flight. After landing, we spent an additional 2 hours at the Airport going through customs, and waiting on line for the lost and found desk for baggage in Barcelona. The lost and found desk had three agents available to assist, however we can only talk to one which was designated specifically for American Airlines. This caused a very long wait time of 1 hour. We were advised the bags stayed in Phildelaphia since they did not have the additional luggage tags, and will not arrive till the next day. Overall the experience within the Airport service desks and baggage check in' s was not a pleasant experience. I believe many of these issues could have been avoided if the American Airlines agents were more knowledgeable and attentive."
Cons: "It was delayed because of late or no show flight attendants. Thankfully two women who just got done offered to do the flight, so our flight wasn't cancelled."
Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. I know it's not AA's fault, but still, despite how nice the plane and staff were, I was sweating bullets for two hours!"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was prolific, with many many movies to choose from including recent releases. The staff provided plenty of beverages to help the time slide by nicely. The seats had both USB and 110V power outlets which was awesome. The entertainment systems work with regular iPhone headsets which was good."
Cons: "Couldn't get our meal preference selected, Iberia page for the flight check-in didn't work at all, getting a page not found error. Then after calling Iberia, and getting the AA confirmation managed to at least get into AAs web site for the flight, but now it was apparently too late to change our food option, and AA wouldn't work with us at all, the phone agent event LIED on the phone suggesting we could talk to customer service at the airport to have them provide an appropriate meal option. The customer service line was CORDONED OFF at LAX, and getting help out of their agents was like trying to get blood from a stone. The worst customer service experience I've ever had, even than Comcast. Then, I guess this ticket is economy minus, you have to pay more for seats that aren't at the total arse end of the plane. WTF. Economy means economy, not the back end of economy, but now you gotta pay to "upgrade" to regular economy. I can't imagine what that must have been like for families of four with children who are being extorted just so they can sit together. Then at the airport, despite having been assigned a gate, the plane came into a different gate, and we're just sitting there slowly wondering more and more why there aren't many people around. Finally we have to go ask another airlines' desk where our plane is at (it never had a correct gate assignment on the monitors) to figure out where we had to board. No announcement, no agent at the old gate to direct passengers to the correct place. Upon traveling to London on the red-eye, they proceeded to keep the plane completely dark the entire trip. No attempt to help passengers adjust to the destination time zone at all. Trying to open a window resulting in being curtly asked to close it. Jet lag on eastbound transatlantic is bad enough without the airline making it worse. On the return journey the line for the gate was around the corner AFTER boarding had started, and people couldn't board in any sort of order. My entertainment system crashed, when they finally came round with food, I could ask them to reset it. Having paid for the Wifi, which is fine, it's an add-on service, it was difficult to connect to, my phone really struggled to bring up the sign-in page, and I had to reboot my laptop three times, clearing my browser cache to get it to connect. The connection and payment screens were very slow, which was because the wifi overall was very slow. I am sitting on the plane waiting to hear from my father about his critical surgery with my phone dropping on and off the wifi due to slowness and extreme packet loss (>50%). I had been hoping to get some work done on the flight, so much for that idea, I couldn't maintain a solid VPN connection for more than 5 minutes at a time. I will never fly AA again unless they are the last option at a non-horrible price. This was an emergency trip as it was, and booked through Iberia; thanks for nothing Iberia."
Cons: "Seemed like most people had the same boarding group so the queue was a cluster"
Pros: "Small snack and drink included. Free checked bags."
Cons: "Very few drink choices. Flight was cancelled mid-air, so we were returned from the air above Cusco to the Lima airport where there were no other flights departing that evening and no compensation for the inconvencience (no hostel voucher, no upgraded tickets on our next flight, etc). Many people ended up missing their long-planned trip to Machu Picchu as the earliest Avianca could get anyone to Cusco was 11:00 the following morning. The staff was unhelpful, and the lines were incredibly long (about 3 hours). Funnily enough, we were supposed to be on an earlier flight, but due to the length of their check in line, we waited over a half hour in line and when we arrived at the desk 56 minutes before our flight, we were unable to check in (since check in stops an hour before the flight). Truly ridiculous. I will definitely think twice before ever booking an Avianca flight in the future."
Pros: "Didn't realize till half way through the trip, but it was possible to view free movies via my iPad mini on Gogo Entertainment app. That entertained my rest of the trip!"
Cons: "No outlet found around seats, so I couldn't recharge my devices during the trip."
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Pros: "The departure time. This left enough time to get to the airport and go through security without rushing!"
Cons: "Sitting in the middle Paying for luggage ( I wish Southwest flew out of ORD)"
Cons: "This was not my original return flight. I was seated in the middle and plane was very warm."
Cons: "over one hour delay due to plane coming in late from boston."
Pros: "The flight crew was exetrmely helpful"
Cons: "Even for a more room seat it was a bit tight"
Cons: "Plane was late"
Cons: "Then take different fly from Florida to NC then waiting another fly at 5:45 pm to Dallas at 8:45pm. My fly should be 1:30 to Dallas 4:30pm non stop, that day we have appointments 8Pm. End up we back to Dallas 9Pm is bad. If we waiting for fly from 8Pm delay we may be home or be home at midnight time that is very bad."
Cons: "Crew didn't smile much."
