Pros: "Pilots made up for delayed departure. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "The crew did an excellent, professional job."
Cons: "There were problems with arrival at the gate necessitating delay and 3 gate changes for connecting flight. This was not fault of American but due to a plane breaking down at the original gate at LAX causing our plane to be rerouted to a different gate."
Cons: "The delays due to software"
Pros: "I really appreciate the automatic notifications letting me know what gate my connection is at and what baggage claim I’m in. Very nice."
Cons: "Nothing that I took note of."
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "American needs to recognize that people in Miami are savage animals and don't have manners, which is relevant to getting off the plane. They come running up from the back and clog the aisles instead of letting people off row by row like the rest of the country does."
Pros: "Healthy snacks, better quality food"
Cons: "Poor they lost my luggage. They did not allowed me to take my suitcas whit me because the plan was too small. I never travel again whit amercan airlines"
Cons: "Entertainment is becoming too complicated for us old heads. Food, I still resent having to pay for something that is ed to be included in my fare."
Pros: "Convenient flight from DRO to Dallas."
Cons: "Three + hour delay out of ORD, equipment problems. Even though she had a boarding pass, they would not allow wife to board. Some ticketing problem between AA and BA. Finally, they let her on. We were the last to board."
Cons: "Cabin temperature was probably 60 degrees. Could understand if we left a 90 degree city. But not on an early morning flight with 70 degree ambient temps when we took off. I’ve been warmer in mid January flights from Chicago."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Late flight"
Pros: "It was not a full flight so I didn’t feel cramped and had space for my carry on in the overhead compartments instead of having to check it in due to lack of space like I had to do on all the other AA flights."
Cons: "We were given last minute notice our flight was going to be delayed and our gate changed 3 times. There was never a definite time frame for anything and very vague information was given. Our flight ended up being delayed almost 2 hours. It was my most frustrating experience with any airline. Definitely would not choose to fly with them again"
Cons: "The plane was late"
Pros: "Once we were finally on the plane everything felt comfortable and looked newish."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO! The flight was delayed by 7 hours. We were told different stories Time and Time again by the ground crew. Either the plane was on the way or it was turning back, or it had landed or was perpetually 20 mins from landing. At one point, they did slip and admit that they actually had no way of actually tracking the plane, so everything they told us had been wild guesses about what had actually been happening! When some passengers asked to speak with a manager, we were told that the manager was not accepting calls at that time. After hours and hour and hours of delays and lies, they finally found a plane, but we still had to wait an hour for a crew as the original crew was now over their time limit. Once we were airborne, the flight was smooth and the newly cobbled together crew was nice. Zero mention or promise of reparations for the massive delay. AGAIN, DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO!"
Pros: "Masson was very attentive and thoughtful. She checked on my connecting flight for me and was generally extremely helpful."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Pros: "Exit Row Seating"
Cons: "Delayed Flight 1 hour and 20 minutes"
Pros: "Thanks, we had a very good experience, Everything was just fine."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and most of the counter staff was good except for the one in Dallas. Actually flew on JAL partner AA"
Cons: "Delay out of Wichita and another delay out of Dallas, got into Tokyo 3 hours late. Paid $167 for upgrade to economy plus but seat assignment was in economy"
Pros: "The Crew. Polite, helpful accommodating, SMILING!!!!"
Cons: "Note code share - came on American Airlines Delayed- no explanation- no"apology"- but really not necessary as most of the time - things happen. Food was mediocre. Entertainment system not working."
Cons: "80 minute delay"
Cons: "Delays and more delays"
Pros: "Really like how smooth and easy was to aboard my plane."
Pros: "Attendants were pleasant and helpful. Baggage was broken but replaced with new one in Philadelphia."
Cons: "No entertainment options at all in this flight - system was down."
Pros: "I truly enjoyed the flight attendants, the flight overall and the great price I got."
Cons: "The seats are slightly uncomfortable to sleep in, but that's normal."
Pros: "Unfavourable crew. Pilot was very good and detailed though."
Cons: "The smell on airplane, was not offered any water to drink."
Pros: "Once again, another good and on time flight with American. I was once again surprised."
Cons: "Landing was ROUGH"
Cons: "AA used a ground hold in ICT. Was told connection to Flint would not be a problem. When I got off of plane in Chicago the flight Flint had already pushed back. Could either wait for the next Flint flight that would get in at about midnight and risk not having a rental car or take an earlier flight to Detroit and pay $85 for dropping rental car off at Flint."
Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours."
Pros: "Gave us plenty of food and entertainment"
Cons: "the touchscreen for the inflight entertainment wasn't working properly - slow/unresponsive on the right side - and the announcements were deafening over headphones"
Cons: "Was not able to check in online in advance. AA wouldn't recognize the booking # that was emailed to me. Sat on the plane for nearly 3 hours while a mechanical issue was looked at; lateness of the flight meant we missed our connection. When we got to the table for people who would miss connections to get our boarding pass for a rescheduled flight, there wasn't one for us. We got there, but this wasn't really a great experience."
Cons: "We were denied boarding to our flight because the gate agent said we were late to the podium. We were there 10 minutes prior to departure. The jetway was still full of passengers. There was no reason she did not let us on other than she wanted to punish us for being late to the podium. We missed our connecting flight and had to rent a car to get home. Corporate American Airline customer relations was awful to work with. They did not care."
Pros: "The "very" new 777-200 was very comfortable, well-laid out. I usually skip or leave half of the in-flight food served, but this rates as one of the best meals, I've had in an airplane outside of business class. The in-flight entertainment/information service was decent, but perhaps because the plane was still in new condition."
Cons: "On this entire business trip, I booked with other companies, but ended up 5 flights operated by American Airlines. One cancellation, 4 delayed, 3 late arrivals. The last one was the most annoying. I will be avoiding AA in the future. The domestic crews are generally brusque and miserable. The international flight crews were more accommodating and pleasant, but most of them also seemed annoyed at passenger presence. Also, having to pay for a preferred seat on a half-empty airplane is simply unfair. By 24hrs before the flight, AA must have known there were plenty of empty seats."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were considerate that it was very early on a Sunday and so they kept interruptions to a minimum."
Cons: "The legroom seemed particularly tight on this flight. Not sure why. I fly a lot. Maybe this plane was diffferent - or I was particularly interested in napping and it was hard?"
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Several of the seats were broken - not sure why they insist on everyone raising their seatbacks for security reasons while they continue to operate flights where customers can't raise their seats. Maybe this isn't that important after all? The plastic backs of the chairs has clearly been refinished but the finish has worne off or been etched with customer graffiti."
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
