Pros: "everything"
Cons: "snacks"

Cons: "Thank reserved seats at time of purchase for a British airways plane and paid for extra legroom. When I checked in, I was routed to American Airlines and the seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. Why did I pay and shouldn’t I get a refund?"

Pros: "Trip was wonderful."

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

Cons: "My son and I had seats in different places and they asked him to move forward several rows because of weight and the seat beside him was empty so I asked if I could sit next to him and they said no without giving any explanation. That kind of upset me. Just a short explanation would be fine."

Pros: "The flight attendants were able to find a place for my carry-on luggage when the overhead bins were filling up. I got a seat with extra leg room by chance (without having to pay the extra fees)."
Cons: "There are no snacks served on the flight. The Philadelphia Airport was overcrowded. There was hardly any room to navigate and there was a long line at nearly every women's bathroom."

Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"

Pros: "The whole experience was stress free and comfortable."

Cons: "We booked our airline tickets at the same time and our seats were separate. This was the first time flying for my wife so she was very upset when we found out our seats were not together. We had to pay an extra $60 to have the seats moved to an exit seat."

Cons: "It was canceled and our trip has been delayed a day."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delays when other airlines with same destination did not have them. The constant asking if is move seats. No means no."

Cons: "See above"

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."

Pros: "The American Airways gate agent was very helpful fixing the problem that British Airways created. She went out of her way to get me booked on AA flights to catch my BA flight from London to Riyadh."
Cons: "My original flight was cancelled and the first available flight was 3 days later. BA booked me on the flight but failed to change my ticket from the original flight causing me to miss the flight from Kansas City. At the airport BA agent told me on the phone that I would have to wait 3 more days after I had already waited 3 days because BA canceled my original flight. Because of the flight cancelation I missed two days of work and because of the failure to ticket my following flight I almost missed a full week of work. The BA booking person seemed content that there was no way I could make it to Saudi prior to the end of the week. Fortunately, the AA agent was able to find a way for me to continue my trip on a later flight."

Pros: "Everything was on time and great."
Cons: "Ever thing was fine."

Pros: "On time. Friendly."

Cons: "Poor snack options"

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

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Dirty plane. DIFFICULTY hearing which baggage kiosk to use. Should have a board with postings"

Cons: "- The entertainment system was not working - needed few restarts - on many seats - Food - horrible - Air hostess dropped water on me - not a problem by itself as accidents do happen. However her comment was more annoying - no sorries - not apologies - just said - "oh it's just water - it is refreshing" - Seats pushback was almost broken - it would break your thumb to push the button and then almost stand to push the seat back. - This was transatlantic flight and you charge for liquor? It is not free - you have to purchase - They ran out of red wine (which was free) by the end of the first meal. Do you keep just one bottle for this big 777 fight. - Overall experience was horrible."

Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"

Pros: "They were able to use the electronic boarding pass through the app which is nice. Boarding was really quick."
Cons: "The overhead bins didn't have enough space for carry on for everybody flying."

Pros: "Friendly service"

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

Pros: "Everything was smooth, even the getting through TSA process. I had minimal wait time."

Pros: "The plane we new and amazing, loved all the extra features."
Cons: "There was nothing that I did not like."

Cons: "This was my 5th American flight in 3 days, four of which were significantly delayed. I was supposed to meet relatives for dinner; instead I got there at bed time"

Cons: "That my earlier flight was cancelled."

Pros: "Excellent piloting (good driving) and communication during a torrential downpour. That's important. The two hours on the tarmac were unavoidable, so appreciated occasional comments about the storm and circumstances. Interesting parking. I didn't know a plane could pivot like that. Also, flying through cumulonimbus clouds was thrilling. Thank you."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Flight attendants very friendly"

Cons: "An hour delay"

Pros: "Easy on and off"

Pros: "The attendant was nice about it"
Cons: "They tried to still get me home on the same day. They even put me on a different airline. It did not work. I am in Chicago for 24 hrs with one $12 meal voucher. A burger at the hotel is $17"

Pros: "On time and great professional staff throughout"

Cons: "The flight was delayed then to top it off we sat on the tarmac awaiting to off load in DesMoines. We spent just as much time waiting to off load as we did in flight!"

Pros: "Early arrival to DSM."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They delayed so long that I had to reschedule for another day. This is after watching planes to other possible locations take off before United would switch peoples tickets. This was after a 4 hour layover completely disappeared. They should have been able to reroute planes or something after the first 2 hours of delays since it was for a weather phenomena that gives tons of warning (at least 24 hours)."

Pros: "We were delayed taking off from Denver due to snow storm. The crew was communicative and accommodating."

Pros: "Thanks for the free cocktail"

Cons: "Not enough room!"

Pros: "Agent at check-in was very, very helpful and accomadating"

Pros: "Flight was delayed by mechanical difficulties and weather in Newark. Boarding was confused, and the announcements in KC were muffled. Once in the air, The crew was exceptional, explaining what the strategy was for avoiding as much turbulence as they could."

Cons: "Late."

Pros: "Great flight! On time. Pleasant crew. Good snacks"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Nothing I wasn't on it I missed it because of you"
Cons: "My plans for travel were ruined because when I arrived at the airport for my flight I was told it was too late to check my bags, therefore I had to be placed on a later flight which then set off a chain reaction where I lost my rental car and missed various meetings at the event I was supposed to be at my final destination. The main issue was that when I purchased my ticket throughout Kayak YOU NEVER SPECIFIED THAT I SHOULD CHECK MY BAGS 45 MINUTES EARLY OR I WOULD LOOSE MY FLIGHT. YOUR LACK OF CLEAR INSTRUCTION SCREWED UP MY TRIP"

Pros: "Excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I did not like sitting on the runway for 40 minutes I did not like to have to run to catch the next flight I'm 63 years old I do you dont like to run to the next plane"

Pros: "Everything went perfectly! Check-in easy, security line fast...gate support was professional and pleasant, flight attendants great, pilot very friendly & it was a jammed packed flight!"

Pros: "Friendly"
Cons: "Everything was good"

Pros: "Online movies and TV"

Pros: "Easy to board friendly"
Cons: "The snack food selection, price on wifi"

Pros: "The flight I was able to get on eventually had pleasant crew and arrived early."
Cons: "Where to start.... they "delayed" my flight for 11 hrs from 5:55pm to 0700am due to "weather" so no hotel or food vouchers would be issued. THEY ALSO SAID "don't bother going stand by for the other two flights leaving this evening as they will be overbooked or "cancelled" as well. When I walked to customer service they stated it was NOT cancelled but rather "rescheduled due to operational issues" then they put me on stand by for the next flight leaving in a couple hours. I boarded that flight only to be pulled out of my seat the last second before the gate closed saying there was an error and there were two "Fishers" and I was in one of thier seats. After closing the door and departing the gate the agent said "whoops" I guess it was a small child that was to be on the parents lap. "Sorry" as the plane left with an empty seat that I had been sitting in. After a long conversations with the supervisor they finally were able to book me on the last flight out that night arriving in DM at 12:15 in am. I had to dig my original boarding pass out of the garbage as they had refused to put me in first class... an upgrade I had paid for. After being lied to repeatedly about status of plane and bumped from flight due to incompetent gate agent I was able to finally procure a $10 food voucher (a beer is $11 at the airport. There are additional bungles including lost luggage and more to this saga but I think you get the picture."

Cons: "A passenger had to move because of an allergy to the "emotional support dog" in the seat next to her. They moved her before the rest of the flight had boarded, so the seating got messed up and took quite a bit of time to sort out. The flight crew seemed to be extremely put off by the whole scenario and couldn't seem to keep their displeasure professionally under control. I ended up volunteering to move because the passengers who caused the problem refused to bend. For all the crew's displeasure, they didn't handle the passengers, the passengers handled them."

Pros: "No turbulence. Easy-in, easy-out"
Cons: "Not much leg room or seat space. Also for over 2 hour flight, no food was offered."

Pros: "Good flight. On time. Good crew. Decent legroom."
Cons: "Not enough room for suitcases in overhead bins. Crew could tell people not to put jackets in overhead bins but did not. Food selection - would be nice to have a choice of 2-3 snacks."

Pros: "Both flights were delayed."

Cons: "No help from the flight attendants before we landed to inquire to see if the connecting flight would wait - just MINUTES!"

Pros: "The crew was polite."
Cons: "The plane was flithy. The crevice between the seat and the wall of the plane was caked with filth. The beverage served was lukewarm water, with no other choices. The plane was uncomfortably hot."

Cons: "Late night flight to begin with then mechanical issues so more delay which made it later. Chicago ground folks were very good at keeping us informed on the status."

Cons: "My suitcase was ruined in transit to Kansas City. The help desk basically asked me to leave my bag behind for three weeks to see if they can fix it. They had no means of looking after the contents. Was I suppose to carry my content???This was ever so frustrating since the suitcase was brand new. Then the lady told me that my warranty on the bag will cover the damage. It was obvious she was not willing to help and did not have a clue what she was doing thus I just logged the complaint and had by suitcase sorted out the San Francisco Airport. They were very helpful."

Pros: "Able to pick seat"
Cons: "A little tight"

Cons: "there was no outlets on the flight for me to conduct business and to use my laptop to access wifi."

Pros: "The pilot comes on and tells us what's going on. I like being informed."
Cons: "When offered a drink, how come we aren't offered the whole can of coke? If we don't want that much we can always say no. Also, I rated entertainment and food low only because there weren't any of these to rate. The overhead was so full that I couldn't place my bag in the overhead. The luggage check in is no longer a service a customer is provided if 1) I have to pay to check one in. 2). I have to lug it around with me only to have no place to put it. 3) the amount of time it takes to get off and on the plane because the line backs up while everyone waits on prior passengers to get their luggage into or out of the overhead (some are too short, too weak, ot placed their overhead ten rows away). Yikes!"

Pros: "I asked for assistance because I have a hurt foot and wear a boot, so walking is difficult. There was someone at every stop wAitng on me with a wheel chair and they quickly got me to my next gate and also asked if I needed the rest room or wNted to stop and get a drink or food. Very very Attentive and friendly!"

Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "I have metal leg braces. The staff was helpful getting me from terminal to terminal. They were very helpful."
Cons: "Having a leg brace makes difficult I am blessed I can move a little without them. I had to move a short distance without my brace. No place to put it back on."

Pros: "It eventually ended"
Cons: "Spent almost an hour before actually taking off. Terrible service. No"

Pros: "The seats were comfortable."

Pros: "The stewardess that tended to me was extremely nice and had a wonderful attitude. Effortlessly, she accomplished her job and made myself and everyone around feel comfortable with limited means."
Cons: "Flight delay. Some flights have phone chargers-This flight did not. no pillows"

Pros: "Leg room on the flight was better than expected."
Cons: "I slept most the way. So which I had my pillow and blanket. Lol"

Cons: "Seat cushion uncomfortable, seat back wouldn't stay forward"

Cons: "The plane was delayed."

Cons: "I don't like small crowded planes. You get off at gate 50 and have to race to gate 20 to catch your next flight."

Pros: "I have no compliants at all. :)"

Cons: "Three gate changes prior to departure"

Pros: "The new planes are great."
