Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Good leg room. Seems to have improved."

Pros: "CREW WAS GREAT AT BOARDING GATE AND IN FLIGHT."
Cons: "LEFT 30 MIN LATE, DUE TO CONNECTING FLIGHT."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Need a polite crew"
Cons: "I had almost two hours to make my Moscow connection. I almost missed the flight! The bus transfers are awful. I will avoid this airport if possible. M"
Pros: "Not enough leg room and children sat behind me kicking the seat the whole trip"
Cons: "More leg room"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Umm, maybe a tv in the headrest"
Pros: "Wonderful and on-time!"
Cons: "American Arline’s gave us a meal voucher and hotel stay. Left be t day. Not happy."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"
Cons: "I lost my connection flight to Denver in Miami because of the delay luggage"
Pros: "Pilot kept informing us what was happening..."
Cons: "Plane already late, then 15 minute taxi, then they could not drive the walkway up to us correctly so another 10 minutes wasted. We missed our connecting flight... rescheduled with different airlines much later. Missed a whole day out of our three day visit. Airline travel at its normal worst!"
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Pros: "flight crew was great"
Cons: "“Yvonne” or whatever the actualy name of the gate agent in PHL was. Terribly rude and condescending. The CRJ 200’s are way too small, old, and uncomfortable. Please sell or give them to the third world where they belong."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to poor maintenance that caused issues before take off. Of course safety is important but that is why maintenance should be done routinely and prioritised accordingly. The pilot on the first delayed flight (new airplane) was clueless, his exact words "... our analysis team from midwest needs an hour to figure out whether we can fly or not" This is after we have boarded the flight. Then after about an hour of sitting in the plane, he says "rumor has it that a new plane will be towed in..." What? Why didn't they stop boarding and just get the new plane in. And I don't appreciate the emails saying flight is delayed without giving any reason for it. AA could have certainly done a better job of communicating the issue. Further the flight crew including the pilot were acting like victims. If it were an Asian carrier like Singapore Airlines, the crew would be smiling and providing assitance courteously since they represent the airlines. Not flying them again."
Pros: "The have the lotus cookies which is my favorite ."
Cons: "charged a surprise of $175 for my third bag although Kayak mentioned i should be charged $75 at the time of booking. AA says it is due to Jordanyan Airlines, why was I surprised by this extra charge?!"
Cons: "Took off late from Minneapolis only to announce that there was something wrong with the plane, no explanation as to what but that we had to circle to burn off fuel before returning to Minneapolis. Switched to a flight to D.C. with a connection to get to LGA. As soon as we sat down on that flight an announcement was made that we wouldn't make our connecting flight. Got to D.C. and asked to switch to go into Westchester instead of LGA which we were denied. So changed to another connecting flight to LGA that didn't take off on time. Offered nothing for any of the inconveniences. Etc."
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: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "I was on a flight to Dallas on an American Airline flight which arrived late due to weather conditions, and the connecting flight didn't even wait for me although they know why I couldn't make it on time. And I was only late for about 5 minutes."
Pros: "A great flight"
Cons: "No real food to eat"
Pros: "Crew was lovely. Attentive but not annoying."
Cons: "Not until the cabin doors closed did I realize the plane didn't have an individual entertainment system."
Pros: "The un seat entertainment"
Pros: "Great time. It was one of the best flights I have ever taken."
Pros: "I slept the entire duration."
Cons: "Staff were so rude"
Cons: "Not so pleasant flight attendants."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, clean airplane, great flight! Our original flight was delayed, but we still made it right on time for our connecting flight! I didn't realize when I was booking the flights that American lets you bring a carryon no charge, but United does not. You have to be a "Special" customer with them in order to be allowed a carryon, so we ended up paying an additional $50!!!"
Cons: "I was a little unhappy we were delayed, I had a meeting in Charlotte planned, but these things happen."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."
Pros: "The crew for the most part were friendly. Boarding was easy enough"
Cons: "The one thing that stood out was that the flight attendants weren't offering water outside of the regular beverage service. I've never been on an international flight where there wasn't almost a constant flow of water. I was so parched after 8 hours. It seemed unusual. Also the seats are so small. I'm only 130 and 5'7" and it was a tough ride"
Cons: "The seats are too tight."
Cons: "The chicken dinner was not good. Also the sound on seat computer was not working and on a 11 hour flight it is terrible."
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"
Pros: "Food on time. Good Food. Good Entertainment like watching movies. Top priority for Diabetes or any other patients."
Cons: "Little guidelines for new comers especially while changing the flights."
Cons: "I'm still limping slightly from not having hardly any legroom period but it's just a fact that you're playing too not designed for people like me"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "See above. Worst flight in 60 years of flying.Their systems failed at every point-- changing flights without carrying over seat reservations "Too close to flight time""
Cons: "Attitude of many employees--" tough on you, suck it up. stuff happens". poor communication re flight change, rejection of AA Advantage Mastercard to pay for baggage check and get boarding pass and seat assignment. Rerouted me by 200 yards to TSA checkpoint I could see was 30 yards away. When flight arrived in SFO the arrivals board never showed it and there was no carousel shown for checked baggage. I finally had to go to customer service, where attendant just pointed to my bag on the floor with lots of others from the flight, shrugged, no apology, and chewed her gum a little faster before turning her back."
Pros: "It's American company airline So,not bad. People are not good service but still fine."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled and they refused to pay for my hotel and food. They finally paid for the hotel but not food."
Cons: "There was no more room on the plane so me and 10 other passengers had to wait 3 hrs for next flight."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment app was nice."
Cons: "I liked the in flight entertainment app however my powers source for my device wasn't working well and I couldn't finish the movie that I had purchased."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and fairly efficient, I imagine thanks to ground crew at PHX."
Cons: "Plane was seriously dated. Interior seems to be untouched in the last ten years. Seats creaked and squeaked, easily could have been remedied with a few man hours of care to the plane. I pray that the state of the interior of this American Airlines flight does not reflect the condition of the plane's vital flight systems."
Pros: "Made flight eventually to Dallas."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed"
