Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice attendants was the only thing good about this flight"
Cons: "Flight was very late causing problems for connection. Forced to check carryon due to poor storage. Seat instruction were in Spanish. Magazine was in Spanish. This is America and can’t it be in English."
Pros: "The Captain was well spoken and informative. The entire crew really seemed to care. They were so efficient. All of this happened in white-out conditions, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving—the busiest travel day in history! They were AWESOME. And the gate agents took advantage of 3 people who didn’t show to let my family sit together, which I really appreciated."
Cons: "The flight was great. I just want American Airlines to stop donating any money at all to those horrible, treasonous Republicans!"
Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"
Cons: "Seating is extra tight. I’m 6 feet tall and find American seats to be too closely packed together."
Pros: "Very competent flight attendant."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late. Pilot could have communicated with passengers. Gate 35X at National Airport is a terrible situation. We go down stairs to deplane, then wait for a bus to take us to the terminal. Not acceptable."
Cons: "Nothing really needed to be better this time around"
Cons: "American Airlines consistently proves that customer service is not a priority. Their servicemen/servicewoman make no effort to show customer care at any point whenever a customer is experiencing difficulty with ticketing or boarding. They are routinely late and appear extremely amateur"
Pros: "AA has good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "1+ hour delay, could’ve left on time"
Pros: "I liked being able to board early as an active duty service member."
Cons: "I don't really have anything to complain about."
Pros: "Seat seemed smaller than previous flight BDL to MIA"
Cons: "On a short flight MIA to GCM AA has seat back screens. On longer flight BDL to MIA no seatback screens. Seems backwards logic!!"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "The flight was very quick and the crew was very professional"
Pros: "Convenient departure time originally"
Cons: "Late start due to needing more fuel because of weather at the destination. So after everyone had boarded, at the minute we were supposed to take off, they beg for 2 volunteers to get off the flight to compensate for the weight of the excess fuel. Eventually 2 people b3came annoyed enough to get off and take a $200 voucher (probably for another delayed flight.) so we were late taking off for that. At our destination there were clear sunn6 skies. Extra fuel was needed for that. So I was stuck in a seat the size of a child’s car seat for an extra 40 minutes? And when we could finally get off, my legs had fallen asleep ffrom being too squeezed in for that relatively short flight. When will the airlines focus on the passengers’ safety & comfort and not on excessive profits?"
Pros: "The flight crew"
Cons: "Small space. Old plane. Tight seats."
Pros: "nothing good nothing bad, just ok."
Cons: "737 might as well be a cattle cart..."
Cons: "spending $600 on a one way flight with you today has been the worst experience and rip off ever! Delayed in Hartford 6 hours. Changed my layover flight in Dallas. Now Dallas delayed 1 hour."
Pros: "When we left the gate"
Pros: "It works if you follow the rules."
Cons: "I could tell you how I liked it if I wasn’t sleeping inthe Ronald Reagan National Airport."
Pros: "Great crew, efficient boarding, on time flight."
Cons: "The seats remain too small and the chairback gave my shoulders cramps."
Pros: "Great light, great staff. They did not have any movies or music you could listen to, but everything else was fabulous."
Pros: "all around experience was good arrived in Charlotte early"
Cons: "Nothing to really say wasn't to bad to say..."
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
Pros: "courteous helpful & friendly crew and really great ground crew too"
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Pros: "Roomie seat"
Cons: "Made me Put my purse in back of plane"
Pros: "On time, smooth flight, no hassles"
Cons: "Tight space but overall not unexpected"
Pros: "Rebooked before we got inside"
Cons: "Landed early but were left on the taxi way for nearly an hour while the gate wasn't ready. The first gate had a plane at it with "mechanical issues". Then it took about 30 minutes to get a different gate. Why do they give short layovers when their performance is not stellar?"
Pros: "I liked having in flight entertainment available. The flight crew was very friendly and allowed me to change seats once boarding was completed to be more comfortable."
Cons: "My only complaint was that it was a long time between pushing off from the gate and lift off but that was due to weather. Not the pilot's fault."
Pros: "Was on time, flight attendants very nice and professional"
Cons: "flight was overbooked good thing people volunteered to give up seats"
Pros: "Flight crew was peofessional"
Cons: "First flight was delayed. Delay not related to weather. American refused to provide hotel. the provided hotel and meal voucher for a fellow traveler on same flight who missed his connection. I was told he was accommodated because he is priority. When asked how I become priority I was told "he spends more money and flies more often." To me that means as a customer I am not a priority to American Airlines."
Cons: "i didn't like my seat 8c with no room to put stuff under the seat in front because there was no seat in front and its like theres even less leg room than a normal seat bc crew going up and down the aisle i had to really squeeze in"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, at not fault of the crew on board, however the flight attendants did very little to update the passengers on connecting flights and did not try to help in making the connecting flight aware that some passengers would be delayed. I missed my connection by MINUTES (I saw it still taxied at the gate) and they could not hold the plane for 5 passengers connecting. Awful service and procedures."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Service is excellent"
Cons: "I didn't like the seats are to small"
Cons: "Only pretzels were served. Crew was very nice. Friendly too!"
Cons: "-missed my connecting flight at 10pm due to weather. -waited in long line for customer service -received a phone number to book hotel -waited 30 minutes for shuttle -waited behind 8 people who checked into their rooms -when it was finally my turn they had not received my reservation and I was told to take a seat and wait, -eventually I called the booking number again, the call got dropped due to no service in the hotel lobby -I had to go outside to call after midnight! (a female alone) -finally after 45 minutes they received my reservation. -I didnt get to my room until 1am and had to get up at 5 to get the shuttle back to the airport -Frustrating and nerve racking experience"
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems."
Cons: "The planes were clean but had no phone charging outlets."
Pros: "I liked that the middle seat was open on my flight and that they checked my carry on for free because the plane was filled."
Cons: "I didn't like the minimal leg room. Also, there is no way to try and work on a computer anymore because of the lack of room."
Pros: "Entertainment screens were easy to use and fun. Crew was extraordinarily nice and attentive."
Cons: "Boarded 2 hours late due to the flight crew reaching the maximum amount of hours they can fly by law. American should be more aware of their employees' hours. Seats need better head rests. Menu needs more vegetarian options and the prices need to be lower."
Pros: "Finally upgraded planes on this route. Dreamliner was very comfortable."
Cons: "Hour and a half delay for a scratch on a cargo door. Glad safety is a top priority but it must have been more this just a scratch."

Pros: "Nice attendant."
Cons: "Very late."
Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "Everyone with United were courteous and professional. The flights were on time as well. Would fly with them again"
Pros: "I liked the fact another passenger was willing to switch seats so my husband and I could sit together."
Cons: "I didn't like the attitude received from the person at the desk at the gate. My husband and I looked at our tickets and were surprised to see the seat assignments I had chosen when I purchased the tickets were not there and instead the boarding pass said "see agent". She then assigned us seating in separate rows and handed us new boarding passes. No explanation. We looked at them and handed them right back and said no thank you, we had purchased tickets together. She said, "this flight has been oversold" and motioned for the next passenger to step up. This really upset my husband who told her, "Wait, we are not finished discussing this!" He went on to explain to her we purchased our tickets together with seat assignments - Together. She then said if we didn't reclaim them when checking in, 24 hours prior, the seats then became available again. What kind of logic is this?! Ugh! If I wanted to be treated like cattle I would have stuck with Southwest! We. It's back to Southwest for us. At least they are up front with their rules."

Pros: "The United app was awesome so I could watch movies on my phone during the flight."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed and caused me to miss my next flight which forced me to have to stay over night in a hotel and take a new flight the next morning. I had to pay for all the extra costs of the hotel, taxis and food. It was very frustrating that they didn't hold the plane just a few minutes since there were a lot of passengers ( including myself) who ran to the gate."

Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"

Pros: "Quick short sweet flight"
Cons: "Boarding late"

Pros: "The flight was ok but they got my luggage almost destroyed and I couldn't complain once I got it, because no one was working in the courier."
