Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Least favorite leg of the trip. The seats were super tight with very little room. The crew was the least friendly I have met. The food was the least pleasing I have ever had."
Pros: "Good food service and friendly crew. No waits in line for bathrooms."
Cons: "That my bag was overweight and I would have to get out of line and go to another section of the airport to rearrange my luggage, which would make it too time consuming. Had no choice but had to pay the steep charge!"
Pros: "Finnair uses the American Airlines flight for this destination. Non-stop flight Raleigh to Heathrow (round trip).. Fantastic, on time and comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "It would have been easier to book our seat assignments if Fdfinnair had directed us to contact American Airlines directly to get seat assignments. Could not pre-select through Finnair. If you did not want the meat meal the vegetarian meals on both flights included mushrooms...not into fungi."
Pros: "Exit Row Seating"
Cons: "Delayed Flight 1 hour and 20 minutes"
Pros: "Flt attendent was really nice, friendly, courteous"
Cons: "Flt not on time. A/C did not work properly."
Pros: "nothing was exceptional"
Cons: "Not the airlines fault but we had a long delay because of weather"
Pros: "No complaints at all. Comfortable and on time."
Pros: "More clarification pre purchasing of extra bag fees"
Cons: "$50 bag fee. Attendants not friendly. The seat pocket had chewed gum on magazine. Trays were dirty when I turned on the light- looked like blood. Will not fly American anymore."
Cons: "I had already landed late from Budapest, and therefore missed my connecting flight to Raleigh, so I was put on a different flight to Raleigh via Philadelphia. Only, my new flight from London was delayed by one hour, causing me to land late in Philadelphia, and miss my new connecting flight to Raleigh. I was put on a different flight, but there was no seat for me, so I ended up being stuck at the airport overnight. All these in one day!"
Pros: "Good flight. Fairly comfortable flight. Attendants Were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The movie was mediocre. Biscuit cookie was tasteless. Would prefer peanuts or pretzels."
Pros: "The smooth boarding process and the enterainment."
Cons: "The limited food option. In general, there's not much vegetables. The food is either a pasta dish (quite heavy) or a meat dish with potatoes or rice."
Pros: "Landed on time. AA is mostly on or before schedule. Definitely like that part. Smooth flying as well."
Cons: "No interactions with the crew this time. Boarding is okay."
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "very cold"
Cons: "When I finally got a seat on the plane, it was fine. The lady at the counter was very helpful!! She helped me get on a flight since LATAM had changed my flight until the next day."
Pros: "We were able to be put in an exit row which was great - especially since my husband and I are very tall and it was a cross-country flight."
Cons: "I find it ridiculous that on a cross-country flight they can't even offer pretzels or peanuts. There was NOTHING!!!! I have been on short hops on other airlines and you get something."
Pros: "Direct Flight from LAX to RDU on a redeye."
Cons: "Delayed 5.5 hours at LAX. Boarded on time, waited at gate for 1.5 hours and then had to get off. During our delay waiting for a 1st Officer, the Captain times out. NO BACKUP CAPTAINS or 1st OFFICERS AT LAX? Then miraculously during our 3rd hour waiting for a Captain they discovered the 1st Officer was going to time out. So, rather than KNOW this while searching for a Captain, they waited for 3 hours and then had to find a 1st Officer to fill in. Result 2.5 more hours of delay. Even the Flight crew was in disbelief on this one. I think we should all get reimbursed and triple miles for this snafu. Not weather or mechanical - just poorly managed time -- BY A MAJOR AIRLINE - INEXCUSABLE!"
Pros: "- Departure and arrival ahead of schedule - Great entertainment system and choices"
Cons: "- Rather uncomfortable seats and minimal leg room for a 5'11'' / 180 lbs passenger - Flight attendants were superficial (continuously overlooked / ignored me on the service cycles), I was seated on the window."
Cons: "Plane was delayed by 4 hours due to mechanical issues"
Pros: "It served the function of crossing the ocean. The crew was kind."
Cons: "The airplane was outdated. It did not have personal entertainment suites at each seat. I haven't flown across the ocean without being able to choose my own movie in 3 years. Also, because of the outdated entertainment suite, the headphone jack is located in the armrest to the side instead of in the seat back in front of you. This caused me to bend my 3.5mm headphone connection at one point while I was moving my leg, because the connection jack is located below thigh level. The temperature was unbearable, and could not be controlled by the flight crew. Dressed for winter weather and roasted for the entire flight. I actually was dehydrated when we landed because I was sweating for 7 hours crossing the ocean."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are toght. Just an inch more would have made a long flight much better."
Pros: "Great movie selection, including ones currently in theaters."
Cons: "Only received pretzels for snacks, while others received cookies."
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "AA was slow to act or communicate and was half hearted in their attempt to make up for the cancelled flight"
Pros: "No delays, speedy boarding and off boarding."
Cons: "Nothing..it was great."
Pros: "Flight was on time"

Pros: "Great customer service and attention"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment"
Cons: "huge delay 7 hours??????????????? I ended up sleeping the rest of the night in the airport"
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "Bad seating system you can have a front of plane seat, but be boarded last. That creates personal items from being able to be placed near your seat and forced to put in bins at back of plane. That means waiting for entire plane to unboard before getting personal items"
Pros: "Getting there"
Cons: "Waiting 2.5 hours bc flight attendant didn't show up"
Cons: "Missed this flight because of missing the first flight"
Pros: "On time"

Cons: "Flight delay, awful boarding, had to switch planes, no entertainment, no free wifi"
Cons: "Flight delayed on tarmac for almost an hour. No air during delay. Seats are not very comfortable."
Cons: "My flight that had been scheduled for months was cancelled out of the blue and when I spoke to American it was for scheduled maintenance. So which was scheduled first? I would assume my flight. Lost a whole day of vacation. Thoroughly irate."
Pros: "Staff friensly"
Cons: "Multiple delays and gate changes the last when we were already were to start boarding Aircraft seating had some issues."
Cons: "My 3rd cancelled American flight this summer. No fun. Takes twice as long to get home when they do that. Time to switch airlines."
Pros: "Honestly - nothing!"
Cons: "Old 767 with very tight seating configuration made it impossible to et comfortable. The crew seemed generally pissed, especially outbound from RDU. Food was awful! Pretty much a Greyhound bus ride to London and back."
Pros: "I like it every thing about the flight I always find the suitable timing and cheapest fares. I always get a rental car at the airport. This is the best traveling service ever."
Cons: "Running behind schedule."
Pros: "The crew had excellent customer service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth-uneventful"
Pros: "Everything was well run, the usual jam to get on the plane but that's a USAir tradition."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Long lay over, could not get access to finair web site to get upgrade."
Pros: "Seats were comfy. Crew outside was helpful, i suggest AC have some men to lift suitcases from scale to belt and not have these women who r checking ppl in have to struggle to life suitcases frim scale ti belt-why aren’t men there to assist? AC need to provide some assistance in this regard. in-fight crew was plain and ordinary, nothing to write home about. Not friendly, just do what “we are here to do” period!"
Cons: "I have given reviews on so many occasions to improve the airline but nothing got better"
Pros: "Nothing stood out as being particularly good."
Cons: "A 6-hour international flight should provide food and entertainment. I flew Toronto to Port of Spain. No free food (not even pretzels), no inflight entertainment system, cramped seats with poor legroom, grumpy flight attendants, an hour delayed due to disorganized boarding process."
Cons: "Didn't take this flight because a fire broke out in the terminal. I got rebooked to almost 24 hours later and a friend I was flying with got rebooked 36 hours later. Customer service at the airport was not willing to help us and we could not connect to customer service on the phone."
Cons: "I didn’t like anything about this flight, except that we arrived safely. I had the last seat, next to the toilet, and that container or whatever it is, was dirty. Every time someone flushed, I was bathed in the smell of urine. It was raining in Toronto; consequently, my checked bag was wet through. I’m glad I was coming home rather than arriving at a vacation destination, where all my stuff would’ve been wet. I’d like to see some effort put into keeping my bag dry. Also, the passengers had to slog through the rain to get on the plane!"
Pros: "Space, food and entertainment"
Cons: "It was late 20min"
Cons: "Really doesn't fit into the "didn't like" category but my boarding pass said Zone 6, however there was no Zone 6 called nor signage for it. Even the person checking our boarding passes was surprised. Just a comment really!"
Cons: "Air Canada induced errors Caused a need to interact with airport staff in Toronto Pearson. Staff were RUDE and completely ambivalent. They simply did not care. The area was grossly understaffed. The staff present were incompetent. Will never fly them again."
Pros: "the over seas flight was fine... once we got on board"
Cons: "The desk does not open until two hours before your flight. Our flight was canceled, 10 minuets before boarding .... with no recourse we were booked on the next day. It took the airline 3 hours after the cancelation to get out luggage back. When we finally got out, the next day, our flight was delayed and we almost missed our connection. Every one who was trying to make the same connection said that every time they fly Air Canada they are always running. We needed up being the last ones on the plane.... they gave away our seats so we were separated for 12 hours. And shoved into corners!!! Our bags made it two days late."
Pros: "Media choice"
Cons: "Crew was very unorganized, had a lot of noticeable blips in service"
Pros: "Everything went almost smoothly and so I have little to complain about."
Cons: "There was a snow storm in Toronto that caused me to lose about an hour. This is obviously to the fault of no one, but it was annoying nonetheless. It ended up causing me to miss my initial flight to Kelowna."
Cons: "Extremely cold on the plane"
Cons: "Took 2 standbys and much time in “service” lines to get another flight. Added six and a half hours to my day"
Cons: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The fact air canada booted me and my year and a half year old off the plane. They gave me no compensation for the fact that they did this. So not impressed"
Pros: "Cadence of service. Amazing plane."
Cons: "No free drinks"
Cons: "t took the crew 3 hrs on the tarmac to figure out the plane was unsafe to fly!"
Cons: "Wirnessed a nasty discussion between crew member and passanger."
Pros: "Coming home"
Cons: "price of Air Canada Rouge not worth it, they should put this flight back to the regular air Canada flight. I can go with United and have a much more comfortable flight home"
Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Cons: "Checked carry on from Montreal to RDU. Bag was never entered in the system (customer service at Toronto stop could not find record for the claim tag we were given), which caused a problem with customs. Bag did arrive with rest of luggage at destination, however."
Pros: "Gate customer service (Jaslon) at Newark Airport was great. When my flight from Newark to Toronto was late and I was going to miss my connection, Jaslon was very helpful by rebooking me on a better flight and having my bags transferred immediately. Second checked bag fee was reasonable,"
Cons: "You pay for everything - snacks, headphones, food. Slow counter service at check-in at Newark"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly & everyone was helpful"
Cons: "Nothing every thing went well"
Pros: "This was a boring flight which is a good thing, no drama, no mechanical problems, no weather problems. More leg room than an overseas flight."
Pros: "airline hostess were friendly and positive"
Cons: "food - seats tight"
Pros: "As we approached Raleigh ~3:15am, over 4.5 hours late, the pilot apologized for the delay, which was thoughtful of him. And we arrived in one piece, so that was good too."
Cons: "While waiting for the flight, I whined on FB about our probable delay, and a friend responded with "I'm guessing that you're crammed at the end of that terminal hallway with about 10 other gates of people with no airplanes, no information, and 2 AC employees." Spot on. Apparently such delays, understaffed gates, and failures to communicate with passengers are par for the course. Friend even predicted the free bagels AC would eventually offer at the restaurant that closed 3 hours before our flight finally left. He didn't predict the multiple announcements about assorted other flights not having functional restrooms so please pee before boarding."
Pros: "The flight was quick and easy.."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on the way from Atlanta to North Bay. This was a expensive hunting trip that was planned in January with no return on the deposit. I got my bags on the day I was scheduled to leave. They had no way to track my bag and offered me $50. I had over $7000 of gear in the bag and I lost my $2600 deposit for the hunt. Not to mention the time a way from work where I just sat around in the bush doing nothing. On the way home, they lost my bag again. No one ever came to customer service desk and I had to call a number to India who was zero help. Terrible experience. Never fly Air Canada!!!!!"
Cons: "Air Canada staff appear to wear their job dissatisfaction on their sleeves. They don't smile enough and often when they do its to each other like there's an inside joke we don't know about."
Pros: "We had two different tickets, one on ANA and the other for Air Canada. The young lady at checkin linked them, checked our bags through Tokyo to Toronto AND got us boarding passes all the way. Without that help we would have missed our connection in Tokyo. Thanks SO much to ANA."
Pros: "Flight attendant did his best to make light of a tough situation."
Cons: "The flight was gradually postponed more and more, with very little communication on the ground. What communication we did get was spotty, and not delivered in a pleasant manner."
Pros: "the flight attendant was VERY friendly and helpful. we had her on another flight as well and were very impressed."
Cons: "the flight was delayed, and there was so much confusion as to the departure gate at the airport. it kept switching and airline reps were not helpful or friendly on the matter. it was a huge mess"
Pros: "Quick flight and smooth ride. Same for boarding and exiting."
Cons: "Entertainment was not working well. Headphone jack broken and on board screen was spotty. Crew members did not offer anything to soften the situation."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Boarding was very chaotic and our seats were originally booked together and someone needed up separate. In the end, the crew worked it out for us and we were satisfied."
Cons: "I've flown this airline a few times and the seats are pretty uncomfortable."
Pros: "Spacious flight Cozy environment Comfortable sitting"
Pros: "Drinks were provided."
Cons: "Not even snacks were provided on the 2 hour flight."
Cons: "There was no complimentary checked luggage. Not impressed because usually this is only done by the cheap budget airlines not a national airline."
Pros: "I liked how we got there safely."
Cons: "I did not like the fact I was cramped."
Cons: "Every air Canada flight I had on this trip had horrible turbulence and rough landings. The turbulence may or may not be the pilot's fault, but the landings are probably the pilot's fault."
Pros: "Quick fight-I slept for the whole flight."
Cons: "Delayed for over an hour. Not enough seating be at the terminal."
Pros: "No problem"
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "Liked the smile in the faces of the crew as they served the snacks"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for more than an hour"
Cons: "Delayed for no good reason. Flights were back to back way too closely so there was no time for delays"
Pros: "All flying may have weather issues. At almost 1 am there was a wonderful ticket agent that was in charge of all of the rescheduled flights in the "basement" area of the Toronto airport. Thanks to her for her pleasant attitude."
Cons: "Lack of communication: 1. There were gate changes that just showed up on the board with no verbal announcement. 2. There were a large number of rescheduled flights on July 1, 2016. We were all "herded" into a small, hot area. It seems like this time of day has a number of late flights that don't seem to have a good plan. 3. We landed in Greensboro and the pilot walked in to tell us after the fact. Come on, an announcement before the actual landing would have been good communication."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Flights were all on time, crew and staff was very nice. Food was better then other flights I've been on."
Cons: "Seats were so uncomfortable, smaller and did not recline as much as other air canada airplanes I have been on. There was no entertainment for the almost 7 hour flight unless you uploaded the app prior to boarding which we were not told and could not because our devices, or you rented a tablet (which for this long of a flight it shold be included). The cabin was warm and stuffy with not much airflow which made my motionsickness worse and the plane was all on one setting so I could not control anything."
Pros: "Free wifi in airport, easy boarding and disembarking"
Cons: "Limited movies on wifi, limited sandwiches"
Pros: "the aircraft is beautiful and new. the services were great. there was plenty of movies to chose from."
Cons: "a little tight in my space. It's ok for a short flight, but not in far away flights"
Pros: "My bag was lost. I waisted 1 hour after the flight trying to find it. By the time I realized I won't be able to find it lost baggage counter was closed and air Canada didn't answer the phone. When I called air canada next morning it took half a day for the bag to belocated. None called me as they say they would upon locating the suite case. Then it took another 8 hours for the suitecase to be delivered to my house."
Cons: "I didn't like that none notify me when my suitecase was located. Then none fade any time estimate on when It was going to be delivered."
