Airline reviews

Pros: "Smooth ride, great crew, free flight entertainment with screen built into each seat."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "See my earlier comments on the first leg of the flight"

Cons: "In-flight movies were broken the entire flight. There was no way to charge a phone or laptop despite the 3+ hour flight time. My 45 minute hopper from RDU to CLT had both plug and USB. Additionally AA does not offer free messaging."

Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seat comfort and space aboard."

Pros: "Not much crew stayed in back almost the whole 6 1/2 hr flight and seemed not to friendly"
Cons: "It would have been better if they had departed when they said they were going to after a delay. Flight was delayed first 1 hr then two more hours. The airline finally posted that it would depart a 4 PM and we didn't even start boarding until 5PM. Then they tried to rush us on so that everyone was standing on the HOT jetway for 10 min waiting to get on the plane. Plane didn't take off til 5:35 PM. Over all on this trip I had three flights that were delayed. I'll think twice before taking American Air again."

Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything was fine"

Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."

Pros: "Pilot and crew were great even though we had lots of delays due to weather"
Cons: "Gate agents were a little rude to some customers"

Pros: "The flight attendant gave me a whole can of Diet Coke (I didn’t ask for it)"
Cons: "Seat number is crazy. ACDF. How about ABCD..."

Cons: "In a perfect world, no 2-hour delay."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. Ruined my plans and reason for flying."

Pros: "The crew and seating were good"
Cons: "The entertainment center provided on the hop from Phoenix to Tucson would have been better suited for my flying with three kids to Phoenix than the one Cars movie on the flight"

Cons: "Todo bien gente tranquila"

Pros: "Once the flight began everything was fine"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3.5 hours without a solid reason being explained to the passengers"

Pros: "They were very apologetic about all of the delays and they tried to make it up to us the best they could."
Cons: "Having a plane that was properly prepared to fly. Not stealing my Lemoncello Cream and tape measure."

Pros: "plane was completely full , but the seating seemed comfortable for the short flight ( 1 hour )."
Cons: "bags were a bit delayed in delivery to baggage claim."

Pros: "The snacks."
Cons: "This was the worst flight I've ever been on. Delayed 7 hours. Made it to deicing pad only to be told we needed to turn back to the gate due to technical issues. Kept being told 15 more minutes until departure."

Cons: "It was United not american and it was ok"

Pros: "Food, staff and entertainment was good. However, the touch screen on one of our systems did not work, and had to use the remote control."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms, and the one on our side got dirty fast. Also, give yourself lots of EXTRA time to get through the airport in Madrid. It takes forever to get out to the gate, and you have to go through Security, Immigration and sometimes a second more intense security (which we did). If you need to get your VAT refund on purchases, add at least ONE hour. 30 minutes to get the approval stamp in one line, and 30 minutes in another line to get your refund."

Pros: "On-time, 20 minutes early!"

Pros: "Convenient flight from DRO to Dallas."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Boarding lounge and plane were hot. No gluten-free options for snacks. At least I’d had a long layover where I could get a decent meal."

Pros: "Flight Crew were professional and accommodating throughout the trip."
Cons: "AA should inform customers via its App when they are the carrier for another airline. That way, one would know which terminal at LHR to go to. Check in was not good as there was no staff to assist or even an information kiosk in the immediate area. Had to go looking for one with all my luggage; they were having a group 'chat'. Then, instead of being helpful when asked to change seats, commenced to quiz me about why and what I did during my trip."

Pros: "After we were boarded and ready to take off, the power on the place went off. They kept us there without any AC or even air draft for about an hour. It was hot and stuffy. They took forever to let us know what was going on. Everything else went well. I just wished they had kept us appraised on a more timely manner and had done something to control the temperature of the plane."

Pros: "Each of the flights arrived on time"
Cons: "Documentation initially was a bit vague around which legs of the 2 Stop Flight would be handled by American and which would be handled by Latam though that is probably more of the website problems"

Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant."
Cons: "Very small aircraft that didn’t even have a working bathroom. All roll-ons had to be checked because overhead bins were too small to hold. Seats didn’t recline and rows were too close. Very uncomfortable aircraft."

Cons: "I purchased a flight two weeks ago to depart at 11am from lax I checked in at 10:30 where they told me It was too late for me to check in they gave me another flight departing at 4pm (free of charge) weird right? Very disappointed since I always fly and check in 30 minutes before. I didn’t have any luggage with me either I do not think it’s fair and I will not be flying American Airlines/Alaskan airlines ever again."

Cons: "The boarding process."

Pros: "Arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "No power outlets at seats."

Pros: "American gate agent started mandatory bag check unnecessarily...plenty of space in overhead compartments."
Cons: "American gate agent started mandatory bag check unnecessarily...plenty of space in overhead compartments."

Cons: "The breakfast, no hot meal just sugary food."

Cons: "Getting to the airport early and waiting an additional ten minutes on the tarmac."

Pros: "British Airway, as their partner, made everything perfect."
Cons: "Iberia never picks up the phone. American Airlines always says 'No' first, & sticks with their 'No' for about an hour before being willing to think of work 'round solutions. AA online check-in didn't work, There's always a 45+ minute wait by phone to get AA to answer.. Then the customer service line of Airlines @ LAX had 70+ people needing help, but only one person working. So it was an hour long wait, only to be told 'No' you can't fly. Yet once I walked over to British Airways, they found a way to get me to my destination. Airlines just does not have enough employees and doesn't care."

Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."

Cons: "The pilot decided to add fuel and catering after all the passengers had boarded. We arrived in Chicago after a 4 hour delay and we couldn't find a gate for 20 minutes. Ridiculous!"

Cons: "Entertainment. None. Horrible movies on common shared screen. Really sucks on long flights. Would not fly American again until they update enetertainment."

Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."

Cons: "It was an eight and a half hour flight that took place in the night. My seat was broken so it did not recline. I also have trouble sleeping on flights and thought there would be the opportunity to watch TV/movies but this was not the case unless you wanted to pay extra. Most international flights already have this built in for free and should be included in the cost. What a disappointment flying on American was. I will take LAN or Copa from now on as my other options."

Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"

Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly American Airlines again"

Pros: "Quick connection"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bins - even in first class"

Pros: "It was a good and comfortable flight and a nice crew allthough it was Operators by AA"
Cons: "The food is not overwhelming."

Pros: "Offer to send the carry on for free at the gate."
Cons: "Have to pay for check in bag. Used to be free!!!"

Pros: "Friendly, efficient service."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Smooth flight on snowy day"

Pros: "Plane was on schedule luggage taken as I boarded and help available as needed. This is very important for an 80 year old. Thanks for a great trip. Sue"
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight."

Cons: "Flights that long should have on board entertainments and food"

Cons: "On time yes. Every seat sold. Overhead baggage full had to check luggage. Dinner time flight no food. No beer."

Pros: "Crew and breakfast business class"
Cons: "Entertainment"

Pros: "No problems"
Cons: "More comfortable seats"

Pros: "Seats barely reclined"
Cons: "More food they ran out."

Pros: "The overnight flight made it easy to sleep most of the way."
Cons: "I didn't like getting woken up in the middle of the night to eat a sandwich. The bathroom was not stocked well with paper towels, so there was no way to dry my hands after washing them. I also don't know how to order gluten-free meals before the flight."

Cons: "slight delay but still made connecting flight"

Cons: "When boarding we were suddenly told that we're not allowed to take any carry-on and all this without prior notice as far as we knew. They just told us bluntly, our tickets are not eligible for any carry-on which ticked us off and they wouldn't budge."

Cons: "Flight was denied in 3 hours"

Cons: "Awful. Recieved flight delay info then recieved another email hour before flight moving it back tonoriginal time. Based on your emails my wife and daughter missed their flight. Total disaster. Makin me reconsider wver using kayak again"

Cons: "Plane seats were so narrow that my knees were pressed into the back of seat infront of me."

Pros: "The landing was one of the smoothest I have ever experienced on the Belize runway. And that is saying alot, as the runway is very rough!"

Cons: "Perhaps a choice of two items could be given for a snack."

Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "The annoying person next to me"

Pros: "Crew on board"
Cons: "Delay"

Pros: "Apart from the poor attitude of the lady in Denver the rest went fine."

Cons: "Seats could've reclined a little more."

Pros: "Helpful gate staff"
Cons: "Frozen croissant for breakfast. Non-functioning entertainment centre. Seats recline too much. Passenger in front leant back as far as he could (without courtesy of request or apology), making my flight most uncomfortable."

Pros: "Quick check-in proceds"
Cons: "Honestly, everything was fine."

Pros: "The ticket staff. The only thing about the Harlingen airport is that it needs more than a couple of exray machines ....the Valley is woefully behind in staff training and technology. It took forever to get through the short lines...it was too long of a wait."
Cons: "The way that a couple of young AA men who were biligirent, combative and vulgar upset about their seat assignments. I told one of the young men to stop using vulgarity and no way to treat the lady that was doing her job, she continued treating them with courtesy and they kept mumbling under their breath God knows what. So young and already so bitter. They were towering over her and took a confrontational stance...she finally called security. I would not allowed them on the plane. I commend the young lady there in Harlingen."

Pros: "It appeared as though I would miss my connecting flight and then crew moved me to an empty seat by the door so I could get off to make my flight!"
Cons: "The plane was too cold!"

Pros: "Same as above"

Pros: "The staff was always very helpful. I carry a saxophone and everyone was always very open to accommodating me, which I really appreciate! Also, great legroom, great pilots, positive attitude."
Cons: "The added fees for food and beverage were a little tough. I would understand if the flights were shorter, however we had several-hour delays in a time period from lunch through the middle of the night, and were not offered any sort of voucher or food item. Then my bag got lost (which I understand with the weather issues that caused delays), but it left me in a city with no clothes, very hungry, in an hour past public transportation hours. Which is not THEIR problem, but I would have definitely appreciated some assistance of some sort."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Just an easy flight that day. Got Eco Premium seat and made big difference."

Cons: "No entertainment whatsoever. They can at least put wifi."

Pros: "The crew was very accommodating. The cockpit crew did an excellent job from start to finish. Great landing in Newark."

Cons: "They mis-tagged my bag and still haven't found it and have not been helpful or informative when I call to check the status"

It left me with a five minute layover to get from one gate to the different gate One building away for my connecting flight. The plane also felt very old and definitely needs to be updated or replaced. The plastic panels where the lights and air vents are were slightly damaged to the point where they would dip low from the ceiling. No entertainment was offered."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "We have to be delay check-in our baggage because at the baggage check-in was ONLY PERSON worked - She DID NOT Work as her Job - Just very Slow... Finally We need to left our baggage at the airport even we did as to pay for return for next fly ... Very Poor service !! any question about that just call me!
