For a delayed flight, and one that most choose because of the amenities, no one apologized for the lack of amenities. A simple, “we are truly sorry” announced to everyone would have gone miles. Instead, the crew kept trying to almost conceal the total lack of available entertainment and even feign like it might “sort of work” until the last minute. I was traveling with my life partner, who intended upon and did work the whole flight (despite zero internet, even for the little time avail that we are aware of when traveling to/from PR), but also with a just turned 6 year old who had been looking forward to using “his own” screen for the last 2 weeks. Underwhelming to say the least. The crew’s apathy didn’t help.
The seats were small, even for airplane standards. No on board wifi to use the app entertainment.
Cons: "Almost 4 hour delay."
Pros: "Crew was snappy in getting people in plane and checking in carry ons since occupancy had been reached."
Cons: "Lack of adjustable headrest on seat."
Pros: "Crew helped us find new seats on board."
Cons: "American Airlines changed our seats after ticket purchase so that we were not sitting together. We chose seats at check-in in San Francisco so that we could sit together. When we landed in Miami we discovered our seats had been changed yet again and we were seated in different rows, middle seat!"
Cons: "Feeling of being cramped"
Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "Service from crew was fine"
Cons: "No delay! Got notification that our flight was one half hour earlier. Then boarded aircraft, and it had electrical problems. Delayed. We had to get off. Then board another aircraft."

Cons: "The seats have been refurbished and if you are a plus size the seats are uncomfortable."
Pros: "Reliability that your flight will not be cancelled. Punctuality."
Cons: "They charge you $125 for a dog in cabin (JetBlue and Southwest near $100, Frontier $75). There is NO benefit, even with this extra amount of money. I was assigned to enter the aircraft in Group 8... I suggest AA the benefit to enter (at least) in Group 5 for people with PAID in cabin dogs."
Cons: "Seats and space"
Pros: "Turkey sandwich snd boarding went smoothly"
Cons: "There was no entertainment and since there is no WiFi for most of the flight due to being over water the flight seemed longer than what it actually was."
Pros: "I loved everything. No complaints. American airlines is one of the best airlines I have flown with."
Pros: "I liked that we got to San Juan safely. The crew on board was very accommodating."
Cons: "Due to the delays, we missed our jumper flight and American refused to compensate. Also, only had two cookies all day from 8:05am until 3:45 pm! No sandwiches as promised. We were delayed approximately 4 hours total. Had to take a taxi ($85) to Fajardo to HOPEFULLY catch last ferry to Culebra. Guess AmericansAirlines doesn’t care if you have to sleep at the dock!"
Cons: "Dallas to San Juan San Juan Dallas American Airlines has the worst seat of any airline flown by us fare almost 2000 dollars for round trip and the seat is small hard uncomfortable even for a short flight this is no business class!!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cold cabin"
Cons: "The seats are very tight."
Cons: "Last minute cancellation and reschedule if original flight with 20 people hounding the gate for standby status. Craziness. These last minute revisions mist stop"
Pros: "USB Outlets are nice to have"
Cons: "Nothing was bad on this flight"
Pros: "Boarding process"
Cons: "Delay, no food,"
Pros: "Schedule was punctual. The entertainment was superb. Good crew. The overhead bins were, for some reason, larger which aided the boarding process."
Cons: "I guess the lack of snack options but that is just the way it is nowadays."
Pros: "Nice crew clean airplane"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled after 2 hours delay. My next flight was scheduled the earliest possible by AA which was 24 hours later. No transportation,hotel or miles compensation for this. I had work and responsabilities the next day. TThe scheduled trip was supposed to take off at 7:45. Boarding started late and was very slow. My bag fit the meassurements and still was forced to check it (which I did not want to do as I did not want to be waiting an hour for my bag at my arrival as I had work early the next day. In addition there was airplaine traffic as it was "rush hour" instead of flying at 7:45 we departed almost at 9pm!!!! Have to pay for food Quality of tv monitors very poor And in an uncomfortable position No movie options No wifi although stated the aircraft has Non functioning electrical plug"
Cons: "Never made it to San Juan to catch my cruise. To top things off I was a ship for two days without my luggage and underwears. Never again!!! Thank you JetBlue!!!"
Cons: "That all the passengers were rechecked at the Gate by TSA without offering any explanation as to why, if it was a domestic flight, why were they requiring ID again. And checking bags."
Pros: "The pilot was a riot, the flight was on time. Again, nothing wrong, nothing special. As it should be (if only we had more leg and seat room, and I am pretty streamline)."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Landed early. Offered a free bag."
Cons: "They moved the flight earlier, which was not fun. And, there were no entertainment centers."
Cons: "Super old planes, no had a tv."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The television was in the aisle and couldn't be properly seen. Also there was no outlet charger. During boarding, even thou they called by group number, the crew allowed a queue in the front, making it confusing who was in line and who wasn't. Better wait till the end to board that get in that mess"
Cons: "The airline had trouble with the plane. After we waited 3 hrs in the plane they cancel the flight. They offer a hotel but it was very dirty"
Pros: "Nothing. My fight from San Juan to Miami on Friday Oct. 7 was cancelled because of hurricane Matthews, since I didnot buy a roundtrip with AA they did not reimburse or offer me a credit for my returning flight. I contacted AA in two ocassions and both times their personnel were impersonal and even rude to me with the whole situation. I ended up losing $250 because of choosing American Airlines. I will do my best to avoid traveling with American ever again, and I will spread the word, as well. I felt robbed, so unfair."

Cons: "No have owned screen TV"

Pros: "The crew was pretty good."
Cons: "Wish they offered better snack options but I’m not complaining"
Pros: "Finally getting home safe and sound."
Cons: "It was close to an 8 hour layover for a 35 minutue flight. We almost made an earlier flight that supposedly had room for our luggage but not us. So when we finally got to Pittsburgh our luggage was just sitting at the terminal unattended. Hundreds of people were delayed or had cancelled flights and it wasn't due to weather or related conditions. It was lack of planes and what appeared to be double-booked flights."
Pros: "Customer service was super"

Cons: "Flight delayed 3 times due to maintenance, total of 5 hours. After final arrival time came and went with no plane or even announcement, I had to go back through security to front desk to find a rep and remind United that they had forgotten about us. They handed us off to the Delta counter with no apology (except the "new girl" apologized)"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. Then waited on crew. Then had to walk a mile to connecting flight. Worst flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Then waited on crew. Then had to walk a mile to connecting flight. Worst flight"
Pros: "No positives"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 3+ hours... In this order... • United system went down • when it came up instead of us next they let a later flight go next • then they moved our gates • then they changed planes so all luggage needed to be moved • then their flight crew timed out, so couldn't leave • I didn't want to end up at my desination at 4am in the morning or later so it would completely screw up my sleep/work schedule, so I left, ate the cost and the time and rebooked on another airline"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly!"
Pros: "The staff is really polite."
Pros: "The customer service was very professional and collaborative."
Pros: "we had to wait a long time before boarding, and no informaton, as to why."

Pros: "The wait wasn't bad for boarding"

Cons: "I checked in online and was asked to pay $25 for my 1 checked bag, but was told at airport i shouldnt have been charged bcuz 1st checked bag is free. Why did i have to pay $25?"

It was found 4 days later in Albany, where they made me pay the FedEx charge to ship it to me. Still haven't received it 4 days after I paid for overnight shipping - 8 days In total so far with no results."
