Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was awesome...love AA crew! Always and this time superb!"
Cons: "Leg room gets worse and worse...boarding sucked since they took our bags and we felt like it was only us that were singled out!!!"
Cons: "Communication among crew members was terrible. We had to ride a crowded shuttle over to the plane only to be told we could not get off because the crew was running late. The crew shows up and begins their pre-flight preparations, but we then could not get off the shuttle because of broken air system"
Pros: "The Crew was friendly and professional"
Cons: "More entertainment options and food"
Pros: "Loved getting pretzels and pop. Loved having movie options. Didn’t love the delay."
Cons: "If the seat hadn’t broken and delayed our flight by 20 minutes"
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendants in both our flights."
Cons: "Instead of taking my one half of one ounce plastic cup half-full of wine, the stewad, allowed me to keep it. I love common sense."
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Pros: "Nice crew!"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Pros: "Jesus, the flight was phenomenal! He lightened up the atmosphere with his wit and grace."
Pros: "There was nothing to like about the way this sudden last minute cancellation was handled."
Cons: "I expected at least an offer of some kind of compensation for the inconvenience. it didn’t and hasn’t happened thus far."
Cons: "If the airline decides to cut cost by giving 2 lousy biscuits to each passenger, why not cut it all out? That saves the crew the troubles too."
Pros: "Fast trip!"
Cons: "We were delayed because of a broken tray table and then the broken tray table was mine. But we made it, and the flight was good, so it was fine."
Pros: "Friendly crew, flight not full so able to switch seat to bulk head seat for more leg room."
Pros: "Left close to time and arrived early"
Cons: "Wifi was offered, but could not get it connected."
Pros: "Loved all the meals. Tasty, well-coordinated."
Pros: "Ummmm the only thing I like is we landed in Maui safely. Pilots and crew seems friendly."
Cons: "We almost this flight because the connection flight can't find an open gate to park the plane. Inside the air plane kids got hungry, we were ready to order $$$ meals and they said they didn't have it anymore. Seriously?! 6+ hours flight and no meal. Then I asked for 3 pretzel and they gave it to another passenger, so they only have 1 left supposedly!!! Come on!!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Tiny plane, old. No leg space at all (I'm 5.5). Our connection before this flight was a 1 hour flight on a modern very spacious airplane, we wished we could've flown on the same plane for the 6+ flight to Paris."
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Pros: "New and Updated plane, great service, great crew."
Pros: "I loved our flight from Anchorage alaska to Los Angeles California. Flight attendants were kind and helpful. We had plenty of leg room and it was great flight. Loved our window seat."
Cons: "I didn't like that the flight attendants snarky attitudes when we would ask for son."
Cons: "Shaky landing."
Pros: "Stewardess was really nice, friendly. Made me feel welcome and took good care of us"
Pros: "Nothing except leaving American"
Cons: "Changed to a smaller plane from Chicago to Dublin Paid extra for seats on original and didn't get them Flight late because of catering difficulties"
Pros: "Everything was fine---smooth flight, no problems until after landing."
Cons: "We waited 45 minutes on the tarmac for a gate before we could deplane."
Pros: "Friendly people, seemingly short flight, as I slept part of the way. A lot quicker than driving from upstate New York."
Cons: "Again, hard to hear announcements, and I was unaware that non-alcoholic beverages were complimentary. Ride was a little rough, awakening me numerous times"
Pros: "The food, in flight entertainment and attention to detail by the Flight Attendants was very good."
Cons: "The personnel handling the front desk at check in gave myself and others bad information about how to check a bag. Which resulted in me being called to the desk at the gate about 30 minutes prior to boarding and being told I screwed up checking my bag when I was just following the instructions given to me. Was then told I had to leave the secure area of the airport, go back to the front to check my bag all within 30 minutes of boarding. when I returned thru the TSA checkpoint they were rude, obviously, but more importantly the flight was boarding early. So you could've 1. told me what the actual procedure is for checking my bag instead of telling me "just leave it by the green lit up check mark then 2. told me at the gate that not only do i need to go fix your mistakes for you but that youd also board my flight early thereby putting me in jeopardy of missing my flight. all i got was a very insincere apology when I complained up front and at the gate about the airline's screw up. i get that you're all human like me and make mistakes but the customer is always right. there was a time in this country when customer appreciation and service were important standards and qualities businesses thrived on. Don't know what happened to those days... Also i should not need to be a first class passenger to get a meal during a flight. whatever happened to meals for everyone? you (all airlines in the US) charge way too much money and provide poor service compared to pre-9-11 days. I dont see how one event can justify the loss in service but the increase in ticket price. you should all get back to what flying should be about: fun and time saving."
Pros: "The AA staff was very friendly. The flight was late due to weather however it did not affect our connection. I believe I paid more more my seat class which proved a power outlet."
Cons: "I really couldn't rate the food or entertainment because there wasn't any."
Pros: "Provided overnight hotel for cancelled flight"
Cons: "Cancelled two flight connections to Austin from Phoenix."
Cons: "Seat 17F is very short on leg room for a 6 foot man. Flight attendants didn't care and rough landing; pilot needs more practice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed my connection and was told I would have to spend the night in Philly."
Cons: "Haven't taken it yet!"
Cons: "Being led to pay to select seats on flight that was only 50% full"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I would like to be able to let the passenger next to me to close the shade. He slept , the sun was not in his face ."
Pros: "Person at the ticket desk was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough people to help all of the travail let's"
Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."
Pros: "The flight was only 30 min"
Pros: "After boarding and a 20 min wait seated we were told we had to leave the plane because of the broken something . It was fixed and we were off about two hours late. Fresno is a beautiful easy airport."
Pros: "On time, good serv in first class."

Pros: "Good crew. Early arrival"
Cons: "No entertainment. Not enough food"
Cons: "My first flight was cancelled. This was frustrating as there were not options for a flight out that night. And then the airport staff let us know there weren't even places to stay. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Left on time and landed early."
Cons: "The seat seemed to be really old and could have been more comfortable. However I wouldn't change that for a flight leaving on time."
Pros: "Flight was fine...but delayed."
Cons: "Missed my connection."
