No in seat tv screen so was forced to watch the tiny overhead screen of terrible tv shows and mediocre movies. I prepaid for a seat a head of time which was given to someone else.

In addition the crew "aged out" so we had to get a second crew - waited for that. the first plane had a mechanical, the second plane had a mechanical - more lengthy delays then finally the last plane was fine - but was again delayed by yet another hour for a total of 7 hours delay.

Cons: "Nowhere on my finnair reservariondid it say this flight was operated by American. I kept logging into finnair and it was telling me I had no reservation. Very frustrating!"
Cons: "LONG LINES to check in, LONG LINES for customs. Once we got through customs we could not get to the stores or restaurants, so LONG LINE to get a bottle of water. Plane late boarding, so a dash to get to next plane at Philadelphia."
Pros: "Long wait for take off. Everything else was great."
Cons: "After having my flight delayed 4 hours causing me to miss my connection, I was placed stand by on a different flight through another city so I could try and make it home on time. I was the first person in line for stand by, but the flight was full so I knew it was a long shot. Waiting at the gate, I was excited because one person didn't show and they were giving him a two minute wait time before I could board. During this wait time a woman passenger came over and said she had just been given a ticket change at the gate counter. The agent at the gate was furious because the flight was sold out and said the woman should not have received a ticket, but should have been placed on stand by. She went over and scolded the other agent for this mistake. Okay, so she should've been placed on STAND BY behind me in line. After the unprofessional arguing between the two agents, they both admitted it was a mistake and she should be second in line for stand by, BUT they did not honor this and placed her on the plane bumping me. Needless to say, I missed my connecting flight because of this and extremely inconvenienced my family and in addition had to pay an extra 75 dollars out of my pocket to keep my dogs at their kennel an extra night because I arrived home 5 hours after expected. I understand that flights end up getting delayed and the agents are doing the best they can to accommodate travelers, but admitting a mistake and not fixing it to make it right is unacceptable. I notified American Airlines of my situation and only received a form letter with enough miles to get me 1/8 of a flight. I don't even care about the miles because I don't plan to ever fly with them again, I want the money for the dog kennel I had to pay extra. I was visiting my husband who serves in the US Army causing separation from our family for long periods of time and this extra headache and expense due to the mistake of American Airlines was disheartening."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the flight was smother and on time, boarding was timely"
Cons: "The plane was older with a poor entertainment system"
Pros: "I liked how the flight was on time and how the flight was not overbooked. Over the past year I have had ad experiences with flying so much so that I thought the airlines did not value its patrons schedules and plans; it was all about getting our money. But American Airlines has restored my faith in the Airlines. Thanks!!!"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Flight left about 30 min late but still landed in philly pretty much only time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to request to not sit next to someone carrying on a pet."
Pros: "Constantly good AA service"
Cons: "The chairs have to be better for a 7h flight"
Cons: "The crew was late arriving to the gate which delayed boarding and then the plane had an electrical problem that could not be quickly fixed so had to deplane, go to another gate and board another plane. We were an hour and a half late leaving."
Pros: "The trip was great. Very courteous crew & the cabin crew was very efficient with a big smile and helpful. Great flight."
Cons: "The first leg of the flight out of Huntington was 4 hours late as the flight was cancelled due to one of the crew members not showing up. It was a very uncomfortable delay. They stated that one of the crew was sick. There was no notice about the delayed flight."
Pros: "I liked sitting next to my friends."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "The seats had head rests"
Cons: "Rude staff, flight was delayed. No food or drink service."
Pros: "Since the merge with US Airways, it seems as though American has adopted it's ways. US Airways was my least favorite airlines therefore I am disappointed by the merge. American now charges $25 each way for a trip to the Caribbean, which was not the case in the past. No entertainment provided unless one wants to watch a Free movzie on your small cell phone screen (lets hope your phone is well charged and you remember to bring your ear buds also)."
Cons: "Lack of snack options, lack if entertainment, baggage fees, less space for comfort."
Pros: "the plane took off an hour late and they didn't explain what was going on until like, 40 min after we should have taken off. also, the plane was really loud and felt like it was going to fall apart. the reason we were delayed was because they needed to fix the door latch. i dont' think that's all that needed fixing."
