Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats were ok"
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Food was very nominal considering the 8 hour flight even for a small female like myself. One sandwich and chips and one serving of snacks. Also the temperature on the plane was extremely warm."
Pros: "On time departure from PHL and on time arrival in LAX."
Cons: "This was an older Airbus A321 with no power outlets at the seats and no video screens on the back of seats. As an Executive level Advantage member, I felt that I received no special recognition from onboard flight staff; they did the minimum as scripted."
Pros: "Nothing. American is consistently terrible."
Cons: "Flight pushed back on time, but then we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour. I'm sure they did that to fudge their on-time record. Totally lame."

Pros: "Good boarding and on time departure."

She had a very unpleasant face, and her attitude was like she was not happy on what she was doing"
Cons: "Pésimo perdí mi vuelo de conexión porque el vuelo estaba retrasado 1hora y media"

Pros: "It was on time, no delays"
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 attendants were perfect"
Cons: "Beginning about 5.5 hours prior to departure I started getting text and email alerts indicating a sixty minute delay. Then thirty minute delay. Then sixty. Then none. I had to decide whether ir not to believe the alerts, get some things done and change my airport departure time .... or to disregard the alerts. Flight ended up leaving on time. Why the alerts??"
Pros: "They announce in the local language."
Pros: "The flight left on time, there wasn't a lot of fuss about overhead space and we arrived early."
Cons: "They didn't offer any snacks...no pretzels or cookies."
Cons: "Thanks for the cheap flight. Oh wait, still over $200 and they passed out iceless water. Why can't they give coffee as an option or heaven forbid, anything other than iceless water?"
Pros: "Schedule was punctual. The entertainment was superb. Good crew. The overhead bins were, for some reason, larger which aided the boarding process."
Cons: "I guess the lack of snack options but that is just the way it is nowadays."
Pros: "the crew was pleasant and efficient The landing was really smooth compared to my trip in the opposite direction."
Cons: "paying extra for a small seat was really frustrating"
Cons: "This flight was operated by Avianca, the flight was delayed 2 hours at the beginning, they said they will give as a voucher for food while we wait, when I went to the counter they said they don't give anything for a 2 hours delay. Then the flight was delayed a 1/2 hour extra, it was not even announced and we ended up boarding at 12:15am from a flight that was supposed to leave at 9:35pm, then the plane was waiting for 1/2 hour before we went abroad and I ended up arriving at 2am to my destination when I was supposed to arrive at 10:45pm, this was the worst fight experience and we didn't even got an apology for the inconvenience."
Cons: "In Rome they told us our bags were checked thru to our final destination which was Ontario Ca. In fact they were offloaded at JFK and had we not noticed a sign indicating that we had to reclaim our bags and walk them through security they would probably still be in New York. It was a long flight and everyone was edgy, but it didn't help that the crew was too. We had assigned seats next to one another but that somehow got changed and we had to get them back at check in."
Cons: "For a customer-based service, I found it disturbing that one of the flight attendants was abrasive to passengers on this flight."

Cons: "I felt like cattle. Horrible for long haul flights."
Pros: "Dame coments"
Cons: "Same coments"
Pros: "Reserved seating at time of boiling so all 5 of us sitting together."

Pros: "Pleasant flight for the hour ride. Not bumpy at all."
Pros: "Very quick connection"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was very nice and extremely helpful."

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."
Pros: "Nothing special. Horrible food (the worst in years). Cabin crew try to manage but a refurbished plane doesn't justify more than double for a substandard bussines class."
Cons: "my luggage was lost between Dallas and St petersburg russia and I waited 5 days to receive it"
Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"
Cons: "Apparently Finnair leases a Hilly plane and crew for this flight right now, so it wasn't quite the same."
Pros: "Did reschedule our flight before we left which was helpful -Group 4 but at least we could get home."
Cons: "Paid for seats closer to front to get off for connecting flight. Waste of money as flight was delayed 90 minutes trying to fix the water system which the slow response maintenance crew never fixed. Ended up using Sani-wipes and had no coffee - seemed ok for a relatively short flight and half full plane. 90 minutes to make the decision to just go on resulting in many rescheduled flights."
Pros: "The air hostess gave me extra pretzels"
Pros: "Great flight Captain and staff was friendly"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "I sat next to my wife"
Cons: "Paying extra for seating"
Pros: "BA system down. Najor delays and long lines. Flight good."
Pros: "AA has been good to me--- Gold card a big help."
Cons: "The LAX concourse could at least 2 more coffee shops in addition to Starbucks.The wait was 40 minutes at Starbucks to get a cup of coffee!!! Get on the ball LAX!! We need our caffine in the morning."
Pros: "My flight from Charlotte to LAX was great. The crew was really nice."
Cons: "The boarding was a little stressful because the flight was booked so there was not a lot of over head space so,while people were trying to get on others were holding up the line trying to figure out where to put there suit case, but there's nothing you can really do about that."
Pros: "The lay over wasn't bad at all had enough time to make it to my gate and get something to eat"
Cons: "Was scheduled to leave at 3:15pm didn't leave until 4:17pm"
