Dealing with customer service was a terrible experience. Our flight was changed by the computer system to a different flight a full day later, and we were given no option to change it. It took us a full 6 hours of waiting before we could actually talk to a human on the phone to help us get it fixed. Then we had to talk to customer service at the airport as well which was a 90 minute wait. The employees were wonderful and helpful when we talked to them, but the wait time was unacceptable.
Boarding went fine, the plane was clean, and the crew was very friendly. Seats were a bit cramped, but that seems to be typical on all airlines anymore. Cookies and pretzels were offered as were beverages - the usual. I’d fly American again.
Cons: "middle seat was not blocked like most other airlines. Plane was full"
Pros: "Short swift flight"
Cons: "The way the plane was boarded took a long time for such a small flight"
Pros: "Getting to destination"
Cons: "Seats terribly small. No leg room. Sat on runway 30 mins before departure totally cramped"
Cons: "Inflexible employee, bad website, worse app. NO ROOM for mid seat traveler. Had to keep arms crossed the whole trip, Dangerous for somebody like me with respiratory illness and sleep apnea"
Cons: "Crew should be trained again in basic stuffs."
Cons: "Everything comfort communication"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "The seats"
Cons: "ages they don’t came"
Cons: "Be on time. Plus we were in first class and it would be nice if the center counsel was smaller giving the passenger more seat room."
Pros: "The window seat of this plane is so closely placed to the window that you can hardly sit straight up and down. Food is non existent and one drink offered in 4.5 hours is bad service"
Cons: "Virtually everything"
Pros: "The flight was not even 1/3 full, which made everything easy. Was able to find a spot for my bad above my seat. The seats next to me were to empty, so that added benefit through out the flight. The in flight entertainment on the app is a not annoying if you don't download it first but there's a work around if you know it."
Cons: "Minimal food selection."
Pros: "Easy check in, helpful staff. Great seats and lovely in-flight amenities. Most of the food was really good and quite a bit was offered during the flight. Arrived early and staff was really helpful in getting through customs."
Cons: "Weight limit on baggage was very strict. Boarding took a long time and seemed disorganized."
Cons: "Delay, the waiting room was very hot, very small place for many gates. Not enough seats for rest until my flight comes"
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed. But it was not their fault because it was the thunderstorms that held us up."
Pros: "The crew was very good. The made sure we were informed and helped get people rebooked."
Cons: "We were delayed by about 2 and 1/2 hours. Which I get no one can control a maintenance issue, just made for a hectic day"
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."
Pros: "How the pilot flew faster from New Bern to Charlotte because we were 3 hours behind schedule, so I appreciate his effort."
Cons: "Right from the start, customer service was not compassionate in helping out. I was forced to leave my huge luggage behind in order to make it to the next available flight. In addition, American Airlines continued delaying their flight departure times like it was no big deal.. It was stressful for many passengers. This other woman and I had a second plane to get onto, and were worried that we wouldn’t be able to get to the next plane ride because the first plane ride was pushed back like around 10 times or so. This is my first experience with American Airlines, and absolutely do not have a good impression whatsoever. I do not support this airline because it is clear that they do not value their customer’s satisfaction, wellbeing, or schedules."
Cons: "This was an 8 hour international flight and there was no leg room, outdated amenities and no tvs! How can people take an 8 hour flight without individual air vents??? I have never had such an uncomfortable flight, and I will never fly with you again."
Pros: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"
Pros: "on schedule"
Cons: "uncomfortable sits impossible to sleep (red eye flight)"
Pros: "Was supposed to leave at 8:00 am. Waited for 4 hours, got my flight rebooked after having to search for an AA representative. I had to get my luggage due to the change of airlines, after waiting for an hour at the luggage reclaim center i was told that my bag had already shipped by itself with other flight"
Cons: "Everything. Poor service. 5 hours of waiting. Disaster"
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "Only good thing about the flight is the price."
Cons: "I do not like the two hour delay, after a hour maybe consider getting another plane."
Pros: "The first leg had awesome pasta.Then, on the 2nd leg, Philly to Denver, they had a "pay for meal" option for turkey with Chutney sandwich - again, delicious. I should add that the service was very good as well."
Pros: "It Was Great. Flight Attendant Rita Was Amazing. The Flight Was Quite And Relaxing."
Cons: "That It Didn’t Last Longer. It Was A Short Trip."
Cons: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."
Pros: "My flight was very good and I had no issues.I was very surprised how smooth everything went and I will be use kayak again."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike.I will use kayak again I know that much"
Pros: "Great flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was excellent good and frequent food, snack, and beverage service great entertainment choices"
Pros: "quiet dark plane, gave blankets for overnight flight. Got placed in an exit seat free of charge."
Cons: "Crew member was 20 min late and they would not let us board until he got there. Ended up making the flight 30 minutes late and I almost missed my connection. They didn't update us saying he was on his way or anything, just that we were "still waiting." No entertainment was visible from my seat either."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."
Pros: "Crew were very good seat as comfortable as can be on a flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and information was not clear boarding was messy people had far to much hand luggage I had one piece but was not allowed to take it on board as the overheads were full already? my main case was sent early and I was a long time in baggage claim waiting for it till I found it in a contained area it had been opened for security reasons? No information was given about the early sending of luggage? Don't think I will go through Philadelphia again."
Cons: "There were seats on the plane that were "inoperative". How is that possible or safe or legal?"
Cons: "Tiny seats in Economy, BA on the way to New York was so much better! Faulty seat which wouldn't recline properly and faulty entertainment system!! Having to pay extra for seat choice and then getting a tiny with no leg space or side space, again the BA plane on the way out was much better"
Pros: "No surveys"
Cons: "No surveys"
Pros: "Departed on time, arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Our checked luggage didn't make the transfer in Philadelphia. We got it late the following day. What entertainment?"
Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "After paying for a seat upgrade when I booked the ticket, I was forced to pay a second upgrade fee just to sit only 12 rows further back than the seat I paid for. The excuse given by the airline was that they had changed planes and the new plane didn't have a seat 13F. Instead, the equivalent was row 40. I was told that I could pay more and more up to row 25, but that all the lower rows were full. When I asked the service rep to refund the difference, I was told I had to fill out a form online. I was told there are no humans with whom a customer can speak that can process a refund."
Pros: "So there was a lot of turbulence because of storms and we ended up in a holding pattern over the airport and then stuck on the tarmac when we landed. The captain and crew were very professional, offering us all the information available and explain current plans. It wasn't the best flight ever but the people handled it professionally and clearly."
Pros: "I would definately fly with them again."
Cons: "I did not like that they changed the seating arrangments & my husband & I were not able to sit anywhere near each other."
