Cons: "The flight was delayed from 9:35 PM to 10:15. No announcements were made at the gate. We were all standing around (no seats left) and only had text or email notifications informing us. I overheard crew say it was entirely avoidable, and the fault of some crew that weren't at the right place on time"
Cons: "Delay luggage"
Pros: "Great Airport and easy access to the gates and transportation."
Cons: "Delay due to equipment failure, were not able to estimate delay"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "The Avianca flight was canceled a month ago, and kayak failed to notify me."
Pros: "Largely unremarkable flight out of LIM."
Cons: "B767-300 used for LIM-MIA was exceptionally old with overhead monitors for inflight entertainment. Headphones not given until 20+ minutes into the only movie (the rest of the programming was stupid TV shows/profiles)."
Pros: "Nothing spectacular when sitting in economy."
Cons: "Agent at lost baggage was less than desirable. His attempts to read my mind failed miserably."
Pros: "Left close to time and arrived early"
Cons: "Wifi was offered, but could not get it connected."
Cons: "The only complaint I have is our bags getting lost twice. I’m very understanding that these things happen. But for it to happen twice seems like people might be careless to the problem."
Pros: "Pilot was able to land on a very rough weather!!!"
Pros: "American airlines is located in a small terminal at CDG which works to its advantage. Compared to other airlines, getting to the US from Paris is a lot easier. The airplane was brand new, entertainment on board is the best I've seen in a long time. In Chicago, clearing immigration and customs was a breeze, the airport is very well designed for international travelers."
Pros: "The flight boarded on time and arrived early. Very comfortable new aircraft"
Pros: "Friendly, engaged and helpful check-in staff at Fiumicino (a first), great aircraft (777-200), early landing and no wait time for a gate or baggage reclaim. Seat back entertainment was also excellent relative to other flights, as was the flight crew."
Cons: "I could not check in and pay for my second bag at the kiosk. I had to wait in the very long ticketing line to get help. Also, it was not clear that the international flight flew from the AA terminal and not from the International terminal where Iberia flies from...I had to walk to the AA terminal with all my bags which was stressful since I was dropped off at the international terminal which made sense as it was an international flight and the ticket did not say it was flying from the AA terminal only that it was operated by AA.."
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."
Cons: "One poor attitude flight attendant."
Cons: "We were rushed onto the plane to sit on the tarmac. After waiting to take off for 45 minutes, we were told that our route had been closed and they were looking into other options. This was a flight from NYC to DC, route is closed? Once we finally got into the air, all was good."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "On a 10+ hour flight that you're trying to stay awake for, some sort of entertaining is near mandatory. Neither mine nor my boyfriend's TV worked. Even after the crew reset the system twice, they still didn't work."
Pros: "The crew was nice, boarding wasn't an issue, and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "A little chilly, but not horrible."
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and comfortable."
Cons: "I didn't find the crew very friendly and often don't on AA. Boarding was difficult as the agent was difficult to hear/understand."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landing was good"
Cons: "Having to pay for luggage under the plane. I booked my flight 3 months in advance to sit with my wife and we got switched, fortunately I asked the man next to her to trade me seats. I ve flown to Managua about 7 or 8 times with American Airlines and this was my least favorite flight. People take up the space in the overhead compartments above my seat almost all the time then there is no space for mine."
Pros: "Flight attendant, Billy, on flight to Chicago encouraged everyone to help each other figure out how to manage close connection times due to a long delay leaving Charlottesville. He then arranged for folks with short times to move forward. We would never have made our connection without him. Gate agents also kept the door open for us as we dashed to our connecting flight and hustled us on board. Amazingly the ground crew also got our luggage transferred in the short 10 minutes we had. Thank you American!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, missed my connection and was told I would have to spend the night in Philly."
Cons: "Not good movie available"
Pros: "Why because my flight was delayed did I get moved to the last boarding group???? I was group 2 on my original flight... I feel as though I should've kept that status. Subsequently... I was forced to check my roll on carry-on. I also was forced to wait at baggage claim in msp. I purposely traveled with carry-on items to avoid this issue! Not happy..."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Crew was unhelpful, not prepared, only cookies for food, no personal entertainment, and charged check-in bag fee."
Pros: "Pretzels and drinks."
Cons: "The group's for boarding are ridiculous. The back of the plane should board first and so on... the new plane we flew on had the smallest seats we've ever seen. When we tried to board, the crew would rudely say, it's not your turn. We were flying for a funeral and paid a lot for our tickets. We should be treated with respect. One lady said to put our luggage in the first available compartment, then when we tried, another lady rudely said, if that's not where you're sitting, you can't put your bag there. We were embarrassed and when we tried to explain what we'd been told she told us to keep moving."
Pros: "On time. Good crew and nicer flight."
Cons: "Actually no complaints."
Pros: "The curticity of the staff"
Cons: "Not enough leg room my seat was 7a not comfortable and an upgrade was to expensive. Also need more options when booking a flight online"
Pros: "The onboard crew was amazing. No problems there. The flight was decent."
Cons: "Both ways I had delayed trips. On my way back my first flight was running late. So arriving at my connecting airport I literally had to RUN clear across be airport and the attendant tells me I was a "no show". So I would have to wait and go on a different flight. The plane was still there. It was 25 minutes before take off time. And she rerouted me onto a different aircraft in which I had to RUN to the other side of the airport again. Only to find out this flight was delayed for 45 minutes. In which adding on to me already delayed flight. I understand some things are out of everyone's control. But the lady made me feel like I was just looking around in shops instead of being where I needed. Never again."
