Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Very good main meal. Numerous movie choices Friendly attendants. Pretty good leg room."

Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "If I can avoid flying American I will... on my way to Rome, 4 hours delay due to technical issues. Same plane on our way back, 2 hours delay due to technical issues. I did not feel safe knowing that plane has so many technical issues. Had to wait almost an hour on the plane to get to our gate."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "One bathroom was out of order, staff appeared very tired, food service was missed twice on one side of our class section like they didn't have assigned sections. Also, the food and drink options do not compare to British Airways who we originally purchased our tickets from. All alcohol is free with BA."
Pros: "Checked luggage at the gate smoothly"

Cons: "The touch screen for the video monitors need to be replaced. It was very difficult to select a movie."
Pros: "Customer Service, movies & comfortable seats"
Pros: "The meal was passable but the space to eat it made it very difficult."
Cons: "I dropped my Kindle and earbuds on the floor and there was so little room I was unable to pick them up! Anything I had on the floor could not be accessed because of the tiny amount of space. I would have to ask the passenger next to me to get up if I wanted to get my things."

Cons: "Food, beverages, service"
Pros: "Seats were more spacious and a representative was great about helping us find seats close together for a party of 4 that had originally been split up."

Pros: "Choice of entertainment was excellent , ice cream excellent"

Cons: "AC didn't work and no beverage service or WiFi"

Cons: "I tried to tell the attendant my screen wasn't working but she cut me off and said "it's loading" (it had been loading for 30 min while everyone else's screen was working, but she was gone before I could mention that). I watched my wife's screen for a whole movie and then re-asked a different attendant if they would mind restarting my screen. He did, and it loaded."
Pros: "More leg room than expected, food was airline food, but not that bad considering. Plenty of beverages, great selection of movies. Hour delay leaving, but arrived only half an hour late."
Pros: "Service, good, comfort but most of all Price! Great but at $600 round trip from Orlando to Rome."
Pros: "You are pushed into 4 square inches. But the boarding and checkin process was much much better then the ny experience."
Cons: "Food and comfort"
Cons: "We paid extra for 'exit row' seats and were sat in sets that had maybe even less room than a standard row! I was extremely disappointed, and even the flight attendant said he had flagged this with his management and they continue to sell those seats as exit row and charge a premium. Very poor business practice on BA's end and will absolutely avoid flying with them in the future."
Pros: "Stewards were patient and attentive."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant, boarding efficient."
Cons: "Food was very mediocre but nothing new in air travel. The biggest complaint is that there was no individual light available for each person to sue to read. On a transatlantic flight of 10+ hours that is not overnight, it is a bit much to expect customers to fill that much time if one cannot read because the lights aren't working. The flight attendant said it was a very old plane as the reason why, not exactly what one wants to hear. Also, the plane was different than the one I prepaid my seats for, thus the money I spent on bulkhead seats was wasted as we just got two normal seats. Not a good experience."
Pros: "One of the crew members, Walt, was amazing."
Cons: "Everything else was a NIGHTMARE. We bought our tickets in Nov. I paid for an upgrade and assigned seats in FEBRUARY. We flew May 13. Not only did they RESELL and REASSIGN our seats to someone else -- we could not get a refund for the upgrade we paid for. To add insult to injury, the only seats they could give us were in the back of the plane next to the toilet. Having heard so many similar nightmare stories about American Air I can say I will never ever fly American Air again. We now have to spend our firrst few days home from vacation disputing that charge, writing letters and making calls to get that damn refund. I will be sharing my discontent far and wide. Whoever at corporate thinks it's best practice to sell and sell and sell seats and live with the aggravation of the customers has an upside down notion of how to run a successful business. NIGHTMARE."
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "Staff members went above and beyond expections; accomodating some seating reassignment requests, charging customer phones, and being very responsive overall."
Cons: "It would have been nice to at least have USB chargers in economy class."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Cons: "Plane was late because of malfunctioning jetway"
Pros: "Plane didn't crash!"
Cons: "Never on time leaving/getting there, gates unavailable on landing, 40 minute wait for luggage, plane not working, lost important meeting in Rome, placed me in a dump hotel on worse area of Phili, surprised I got out of there alive.... I can write a book!"
