Cons: "The crew seemed a bit tired, but it’s the season"

Pros: "The flight attendant named Steven went so far beyond the call. He was attentive, he fixed our video system when no one else could and when he learned we were celebrating an anniversary he brought us a present. He was awesome!"

Pros: "Couldn’t find a thing."
Cons: "My husband booked West Jet by phone. They spelled my name wrong on the ticket which caused hours of delays tryng to check in...ultimately leading to our missing the flight. The time spent was around 6 hours....4 of them the were on one continuous phone call where we were bumped back and forth between West Jet and Delta. The problem was never fixed and we haven’t flown home yet. We have new flights booked on Delta but only because Delta took pity....West Jet does no refunds or reticketing. If flights are missed you're out on of luck!"

Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "They want us there at 4:20 for a 6:20am flight but Clear doesn't open until 5. I was through checkin by 4:23. Why bother if one can't get to the breakfast facilities for another half hour plus? Then Peet's had no pastries."

Pros: "Good snacks and movie selection. Seats were spacious and comfortable"
Cons: "Delayed flight, confusing boarding, and not the friendliest flight attendants"

Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."

Cons: "Sold us a flight with unassigned seats"

Cons: "Flight delays automatically book you to the next available flight after speaking with a representative stating that you would still like to stay on the same flight and receiving confirmation that will happened."

Pros: "Crew aware of my children's nut allergy and chose not to serve"
Cons: "Coffee horrible"

Cons: "I can’t believe with all that’s going on American doesn’t care. The terminal was packed with people. Terminal B Charlotte airport. Packed!!!. I had no choice. In the future Jet Blue. I know it’s all about making money the flight was packed. Logan airport Delta every other set has a sticker don’t sit here"

Cons: "Fog in Philly. AA should have diverted our plane to a bigger airport where AA could have serviced us (eg. Washington DC). Instead AA diverted us to Salibury/Ocean City!! We missed our connections."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "snacks"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."

Cons: "traffic made lose this flight. Had to change flights. Can not get connection flights with one hour difference between connections"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The cliff notes of this debacle are, inbound flight arrived late to Montreal, I contacted AA social media team to make sure they could notify the gate of my connecting flight, they didn’t after they said they did. Flight arrived in Chicago a little early, I have to wait 15 min for my bags from the valet, I run to the next gate and arrive with 13 min to spare, the gate agent (not nice) goes I’m sorry we already closed the door. I’m like, huh? Then he has the gall to tell me, “well had someone called us we could of held your seat”. That’s when I lost it. Needless to say I’m now flying to Dayton and back to Dallas. That’s in lieu of a 3:50 PM flight TOMORROW!"

Pros: "Collecting bags was terribleterriblel"
Cons: "Collecting bags was terrible"

Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"

Pros: "Jet instead of prop."
Cons: "No snack service but understandable on such a short flight"

Pros: "Ease of boarding, friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Space was very tight, music choices were terrible, no plug to charge my phone, no individual screen for entertainment, movie screen went black half way through the movie I was watching and it never came back on"

Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"

Pros: "Plane on time plane in reasonable condition"
Cons: "American airlines keep increasing their greediness by charging for everything, provide fewer benefits to frequent flyers and have poor customer service They acting like United as if they are a monopoly that can charge what they want and treat customers like they feel like Hoping for small airlines that get a better service and price"

Cons: "Plane not ready to go because of missing trash bags"

Pros: "Good service friendly made sure I had morning coffee even though I was sleeping during service"

Pros: "on time, quiet trip, lots of entertainment to chose from. if you like to eat and get alot of beverages you'll love this flight"
Cons: "had to do pre-clearance security screening before getting to the states and no notice given. This takes twice as long and if you don't get to the gate by a certain time you don't get to your flight. Thankfully we were at the airport 2.5 hours early and it saved us!!"

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."

Cons: "The flight was delayed hence felt a sufforcation the flight as well"

Pros: "Read above we didn't fly American until we got to Chicago to Dallas. We flew British Airlines entire time :("
Cons: "Please read above. This was a special trip for my husband and me since I'm pregnant and it's the last trip before we have a baby for a while. We were highly disappointed on way home."

Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."

Cons: "Poor snack options"

Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"

Cons: "Gate agents need to talk slower then we're clearly… It's ridiculous how some of them talk, they need a communications course it's not that hard 10% slower equals 100% more effective."

Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"

Cons: "Sat on the ground for an hour."

Pros: "It was quick"
Cons: "No drinks handed out."

Pros: "I have no praise for American Airlines. We didn't board our flight because we would have landed in a flooding, evacuating area with gale force winds. Despite this unexpected natural event, we were unable to cancel our trip. I paid American Airlines more than a month's rent and could not recover this cost."
Cons: "American Airlines policy on refunds should be illegal. When there are hurricane and flooding conditions at a destination, CUSTOMERS should have the choice whether they want to CANCEL or reschedule. Simply providing a small window of time for a fee-free flight change to the same destination is not acceptable. The flooding is still not alleviated inany areas and the change period is over."

Pros: "The cabins are very cold and the seats stiff. Food was just dry pretzels and soda, coffee etc. Landing was smooth. I just wish more information was given as to why we were delayed etc."

Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"

Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"

Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"

Pros: "Willingness to help find a new flight"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight, I was able to get on a new flight but I had to sprint to my connection because that plane was boarding before I was even on the ground. Thankfully the attendant opened the door for me to get on. I am on a 10 day leave from the Marine Corp. so every hour counts, it's frustrating to lose time at the airport. Also, my luggage didn't make it on the connection."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "See above comments"

Pros: "For a flight on a US-based airline, this was very comfortable. Much better than the current domestic tin cans. Flight was early"
Cons: "Flight crew giving instructions seemed to be forgetting everything and breaking in every 2 minutes to add a new sentence."

Cons: "Then take different fly from Florida to NC then waiting another fly at 5:45 pm to Dallas at 8:45pm. My fly should be 1:30 to Dallas 4:30pm non stop, that day we have appointments 8Pm. End up we back to Dallas 9Pm is bad. If we waiting for fly from 8Pm delay we may be home or be home at midnight time that is very bad."

Pros: "The flight was smooth and the coastline views were amazing."
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment. Poor quality sandwiches."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being contacted even though reservation was cancelled the day it was made months ago. Caused unnecessary stress that I needed to call Airline to confirm cancellation."
