Crew were super amazing this flight. Smooth take off and landing.

It didn’t happen. The flight left early. We would have made our connection had they left on time. Our arriving flight had a 2.5 hour delay. We would have made it on our connection had they not left early. Now our luggage is in limbo.

How fast it was

I completely missedy flight to South America because of a maintenance issue.

Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."
Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."

Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."
Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "On time, courteous"
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."

Flight was delayed 2.5 hours

All was great, thank you.

Flight was smooth and the crew were great, but I ended up getting delayed in Dallas and spending 6 hours in the Dallas airport and they lost my luggage and it never made it to New Orleans.

Fue cancelado la reprogramacion fue terrible

Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
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: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "The crew was great. I showed up to early and they were able to adjust my flight so I wasn’t sitting at the airport all day. Best service."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Pros: "The gate crew handled the delay as best they could."
Cons: "Seems that a crew timing out could be better anticipated."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."
Cons: "Delays,"
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Pros: "Crew was sweet and accommodating, much better than my previous flights with AA. Flight was clean and take off and landing was quick despite the delay."
Cons: "Second flight to get delayed in the span of a week. Bags took an hour to be distributed at baggage claim. On flight meals have no variety and are too expensive for the portion sizes."
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Pros: "Jet instead of prop."

Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Pros: "The America flights were all ON TIME."
Cons: "The seats on this particular flight were not as good for my back and they no longer offer pillows to put behind my back."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"

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

Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
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."
Pros: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."
Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."
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: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."
