Being on time. Free carry-on. Could use shorter layover.
Never made it connecting flight was canceled. Waste of $$$
Again, AA has lost its customer service. I will be calling AA to discuss my entire experience
1, the communication when the flight was delayed was incredibly poor. Things happen, that's okay, but not knowing where the inbound plane is, changing gates via text and not an announcement, showing up and finally speaking to people without any clue of what was going on, and dismissing customer's questions without any real intent to listen was disappointing. The Wi-Fi didn't work on the plane, hence the poor entertainment score, there simply was not any.
Worked out okay. Flight was delayed waiting for crew to show. So glad it wasn't cancelled!
Poor customer service upon arrival in Dallas with cancelled connection. Offered no compensation, connecting flight, hotel room or anything.
Flight delayed out of MCO cost me my connecting flight to PDX. Held up in a hotel in Phoenix…
Cons: "Canceled flight caused me to remain in a hotel for another day. Confusing check in. No one to help. Machines broken. Unable to disembark from the plane. Bad logistics all the way around."
Pros: "The crew and boarding process was excellent."
Cons: "Social distancing with the seating arrangements was lacking."
Cons: "Gate agent was cold rude and incompetent"
Cons: "They need to stop selling the flights at full capacity"
Cons: "Arriving on time to make connection although I am not sure 1 hour 30 minutes was long enough to make our next flight. The baggage took a very long time."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "We paid for WiFi but it was not working on this flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing and work diligently to make everybody feel comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing. I had no issues!"
Pros: "The plane was a good size for that length of trip. Free entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Had to pay $80 for an upgrade to be (fairly) comfortable for the flight."
Pros: "Crew was really great!"
Cons: "My bag never left Chicago so I had to wait a day to get that"
Cons: "I was in 10C a So I was able to hear a disgruntled AA employee. Just like office politics. But up in the air. I didn’t need to hear"
Cons: "Check in at Heathrow was a pain. One agent asking questions about where people work and who there manager was. The other not. Having to tag baggage yourself is frustrating, especially when nobody is around to ask questions and ensure it’s done right."
Pros: "Good flight with a little turbulence."
Cons: "Better entertainment options."
Pros: "Flight was under 4 hours."
Cons: "No where to store carry on since everyone is allowed to bring larger bags than they should so you end up having to stuff everything under the seat leaving no room for your legs. Very uncomfortable!"
Pros: "Flight was delayed by approximately 90 minutes. Attendant was friendly."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."
Cons: "The seat in front of me reclined so far that the guy in that seat had his head less than a foot from my face and my knees were being smashed by his seat. Very painful."
Cons: "Some turbulence"
Pros: "Every aspect of the trip went very smoothly. Great crew. Very comfortable. The 787 Dreamliner is a great airplane. Row 19 is the way to go in coach!"
Pros: "Friendly staff great pilots we got up and down safely...."
Cons: "No time to grab lunch all I had was pretzels do you"
Pros: "Early and easy"
Cons: "Was perfect"
Pros: "It was 1 in the morning in the Philadelphia airport and I had an 8 hour layover and there were no vending machines available and an airport worker went and got me a drink and some chips and would not take any payment. I call that going above and beyond his job duties. Very pleasant man."
Cons: "They layover was a little much and to get one with a better time was $300.00 and all I wanted to do was get to Watertown NY to see my grandkids."
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Take-off and landing were smooth. Food quality was decent, could have been better though."
Cons: "One of customers was rude. One of hostesses kept on bumping into my arm, waking me up twice and hit me on accident with the food cart without apologizing. Did not provide enough snacks."
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "They cancelled this flight."
Cons: "I had to fly to a different city in order to get home."
Pros: "Crew overall was friendly. Flight took off a little early and arrived nearly an hour early."
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted for the entire plane, so no entertainment for the first hour or so. Even once working, the tactile screen did not work well and was frustrating to use. Food was OK, not great. Pasta was overcooked and dry. Fake cheddar cheese was not good."
Cons: "Comfort of plane!"
Pros: "All I want is clear communication- not strung along. Reasonably comfortable seat - without person next to me too large for seat. Don't gate check my bag then I find plenty of space above my seat. Stop giving people food and drink on short flights as it is unnecessary and it constrains use of the bathroom"
Cons: "The scene of returning bags at the gate of arrival is awkward and other passengers take advantage - blocking walkway etc. please change system and adt a baggage handler to drop bags in a line along one side of the gateway while passengers wait along other side of the gateway"
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"
Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."
Cons: "I was scheduled to leave Lisbon at 11:45 am however at 6am I received a call to say my flight was cancelled and I was booked on the British Airways flight the next day at 7:30 am. This after AA had turned my flight on the way out around on the way from Austin to Paris and we had to spend the night in Chicago."
Pros: "Wide selection of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "This was not food that was served in the Economy class. This was pure junk. I understand that airlines are saving on the service in Economy but a minimal quality should be maintained. I recommend to prepare some sandwich etc. and other snacks and to take it on the plane."
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Pros: "The flight staff had an amazing energy about them especially for 7am. They didn't do anything above or beyond but they extremely pleasant, energetic, and courteous. The pilots also pulled off the one of the smoothest landings ever."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. Streamlined boarding process"
Cons: "Outbound flight was delayed by 2 hours because the flight crew that was supposed to fly our flight was delayed relying out of some other airport. Had to get a rental car and ended up reaching my friends place really late. And had an interview early next morning. Not ideal at all."
Pros: "Ordinary flight, not too chaotic for holiday weekend."
Cons: "My luggage was lost! Had to wait an entire day to recuperate my suitcases."
Pros: "Flight was on time with no problems."
Cons: "The planes were clean but had no phone charging outlets."
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "No tvs"
Pros: "not beat up"
Cons: "people trying to get extra carry on on"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and then cancel altogether. No vouchers provided for the inconveniences."
Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
