Cons: "Everything was great"

Pros: "Smooth Travel! AA is great"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. No suprises. Predictable"
Cons: "American continues to surprise through their lack of consideration and cheapness Prefer to have seat empty on the front rather than move passengers that are loyal frequent flyers. The most important point for American is you have to pay for everything including for flight status. No longer miles flew but how much you pay them"
Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
Pros: "Nothing aside from that the flight wasn’t crowded so I didn’t have someone next to me which was a plus."
Cons: "Funky smell in plane something like artificial strawberry, farts and mildew. Crappy plane overall. Old and no power at seats. Horrible in flight entertainment for a long haul with no individual screens. American used to be so good and now it’s aweful."
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: "I was truly surprised by how smooth the entire experience was on this flight. The crew was excellent and the flight was on time!"
Pros: "We enjoyed the room on the seats and the power outlets were very comfortable. Air Crew was extremely attentive!"
Cons: "Too much space in between meals provided and small portions."
Cons: "Terrible attitude of Kay (Kathy) our flight attendant. Seemed like she didn’t want to be at work today. Said “thank you” and no response— didn’t talk at all. Seemed overworked?? No movie- no monitors? This was not First Class Service and we were very disappointed."

Cons: "Lack of entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was smooth. Service was perfect"

Cons: "How late the flight took off How tight the seats were Entertainment if you want to call it that was barely visible from our seats"

Cons: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Cons: "I paid hard-earned money for an expensive flight to Madrid. Not only were we very delayed on the way there, we were also delayed on the way back. We spent 3 hours back and forth on the tarmac stuck on an old bus in 100+ degree weather being delivered conflicting information, summed up to the seats being "broken". We got a "bathroom break" during which was talked to very rudely by the flight attendant at the gate, and then was almost left behind by the bus on the tarmac. Additionally, once we got onto the plane, it was extremely old (I'm talking no TV's, ashtrays on seats, filthy tables, dirty seats). To top it off, when I went to the restroom in the middle on the flight, I saw flight attendants drinking Tito's and soda in the back in the plane and talking loudly. I am not usually one to complain- but this was a particularly bad experience and terrible ending to my vacation."
Pros: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
Pros: "The stewardess was nice enough to give me water with my gingerale"
Cons: "We didn't take off until 3 hours after scheduled, and we're forced to watch ads on the overhead monitors for most of the flight. I was not impressed. Poor communication from the pilot."
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Kept asking passengers pretty boarding to check luggage due to limited space...yet after we boarded there was at least 1 completely empty overhead compartment."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are not roomy, but that's par for the course."
Pros: "Great friendly crew for 7 am on a Saturday morning."
Cons: "Tarmac delay upon landing because of runway constr"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."
Cons: "Finnair was thru American Airlines. American had only a couple of check in windows open when we got to the Frankfurt airport - nowhere near enough to handle the number of people checking in."
Cons: "Small plane now for the same price and no food like before in the same route"
Pros: "Easier to board. Smaller plane so not as many people to climb over"
Cons: "Planes overall every airline are too tight but AA seemed better than others I've been on actually"
Cons: "it was really bumpy"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Even with being checked in, the line was so long to check bags, it took over an hour. I had to run to catch my flight. Several people missed their flight. It was an 8 hour flight, with cramped seating, no internet, no TV. They ran out of meals with exception of vegetarian."
Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. 3 gate changes and finally on an old plane. Avoid if you can. Only good thing about it, it was bringing me home"
