Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Cons: "Traveled Comfort Plus. Looking really crowded in the main cabin."

Pros: "pilot was great... made the landing at key west seem easy!"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed to really like their jobs!"

Pros: "Very smooth flight. On time take off and landing. Excellent in flight entertainment. Great crew."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. My seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The plane was delayed. It arrived over 25 minutes after it was originally scheduled to."
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time, crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I am over 6 foot so comfort for me isn’t possible. It was an older aircraft so the seat monitor was of the older version but it did work and helped to pass the time while I was in my no leg room seat! I am NOT over weight! With turbulence there was only one opportunity for inflight beverage service."
Cons: "The floor of the aircraft was cold!"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 20 Minutes, after taking off late. Arrived to my connecting gate 10 Minutes prior to scheduled departure with no delta attendants in sight and watched my plane sit at the gate and pull away with no way to get on board. Now I’m waiting unnecessarily for 4 hours on another flight."
Cons: "Seats were a little tight."
Cons: "To many screaming kids"
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "Late departure. Almost missed connection. Even though we planned a decent amount of time between flights. Always something causing delays when we leave from Newark."
Pros: "I like the efficiency of the boarding process & the courtesy of the crew."
Cons: "Small overhead bins. No entertainment facilities on the seats. Although I wasn't expecting a movie for an hour-and-a-half flight, at least the airplane should have amenities to provide music so that passengers bringing their own headphones can listen to some music."
Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and professional. The crew were professional and friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment system. The cabin was cramped and the food/snake was forgettable."

Cons: "Late with no information"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Did not like that they still made me pay a fee to bring my support dog aboard. Stood at the special services counter just to pay a fine for my medical animal."
Pros: "On time. Clean."
Pros: "Once we hit the coast we skirted down the coas of Florida which provided a spectacular view. The approach and landing at Key West airport was thrilling and absolutely perfect. We’ve flown Delta many times but this was our first but not last time to Key West."
Cons: "I have traveled with my luggage plenty of times through airports and the flight from washington to jacksonville, my luggage came back to me cracked and broken. I was surprised that Delta handling was worse than any of the cheaper flights I normally take and will not be checking any baggage with Delta again."
Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."
Pros: "Delta agents rerouted me in face of weather problems in Southeast so as to allow me to make my LAX to Sydney flight. Well done."
Cons: "Not enough leg room in Economy. I lucked out on transpacific leg with an exit row seat, everything else tight. Movie choices kinda limited and very US."
Pros: "Everything went well...on time, quick boarding and free gate check of bag."
Pros: "What can I say...I love Delta!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, we even left early! Very kind crew. Flight was WAY shorter than it said on our itinerary!"

Cons: "I used mobile checking and did not get seat assignment till Boarding started"
Pros: "Ease of it all!"
Cons: "The jerk behind me who kept kicking my seat and kept coughing obnoxiously like he had never been on a plane"
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Cons: "One lavatory didn't work and we had to use the nathroom for first class..couldnt access bathroom half of the flight"
Pros: "gate and plane staff friendly, smiling and helpful."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no cabin service on short flight, no power in seats."
Pros: "Staff hospitality"
Cons: "Deboarding delay, seems typical"
Pros: "From curbside check-in to landing the plane, overall excellent service ! Very pleased to find out they offered a shuttle from checkin to the gate. I am having knee surgery soon and the walk from security to gate 34 LaGuardia would have put me over the top with pain! It was a very nice gentleman that gave me a ride to the gate and even stopped to let me use the bathroom. Thumbs up *****"
Cons: "The fact that I was charged $150 to check a small cosmetics bag is no loose change ! I would have carried it on but my hand is in a brace and I has to have extensive surgery. Then yoy get to the gate, and they repeatedly asked for volunteers to check their bags for free. I think this is a very unfair policy and try to explain it to the curbside attendant. I literally cannot carry more than five pounds in my left hand until I get bone replacement surgery. I'm also having knee surgery soon and this small additional weight would be caused me excruciating pain ! They didn't care and still charged me $150 for a bag thats no bigger than 12 inches and weighs less than ten pounds. Thats the way you treat your first class passengers? One other quick note: the sausage and egg sandwich? that was served for breakfast was absolutely horrible! Thumbs down !"
Cons: "Three bags were left at Paris and were delivered to me only after more than 48 hrs - lock of one bag was missing and other bag was in damaged condition"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."
Pros: "Sitting in the exit row (52H) gave me lots of space and the temperature was great."
Cons: "My original flt KE018 on 03Apr17 was a different story; had adequate space, but the temperature was warm making it uncomfortable to sleep during the 13 hour flight. Unfortunately, the A-380 does not have manual overhead air vents."
Pros: "Both the crew in the plane and the groundcrew were helpful. Particularly the people in Key West, in terms of finding our luggage and helping us get a taxi."
Cons: "Offer offer healthier food choices, and larger amounts for beverages, particularly water."
Pros: "Cormfortable and brief"
Cons: "A screaming spoiled three year old that started acting out in the boarding area and progressed to screaming for things at the boarding gate and didn't stop until we were almost there. At the top of her lungs screaming!! This was no child with ear issues, this was a child with parents that don't say no! Bad towards the front, I can't imagine how it was for the poor people seated in the back. Geez!!!!"
Pros: "I like the promptness of the service Delta offers. The planes typically are not delayed due to mechanical difficulties."
Pros: "I loved the award winning video that introduced the flight safety instructions."
Cons: "Nothing, it was great"
Pros: "I like that I paid for a first class seat with no first class service."
Cons: "Suspended food is a rip off, I flew this same leg a month and a half ago got food, what changed, NOTHING...I have flown AA for 20plus years. I never got credit for that flight either. I am aware safety first but what does it really have to do with QUALITY of the Airline. Still love yah tho."
Pros: "The plane was clean"
Cons: "More spacing with the whole Covid-19 thing going on"
Pros: "This was a prompt, well organized flight. In-flight entertainment on AA is always decent."
Pros: "Nothing. As sucks."
Cons: "Planes auck. Terminal suxks."
Cons: "It was a quick and perfect flight."
Cons: "Air conditioning wa not working. We were in a hub why wasn't the plane switched."
Cons: "Get rid of commuter jets."
Cons: "Commuter jet—no comfort. No jetway, we were on airplane stairs."
Pros: "Flight was delayed, and unclear why."
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Cons: "No boarding by zone."
Cons: "No idea. I thought everything was good."
Cons: "Nothing the flight was great and very fast."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. They did not allow me to take her whit me in the plane because i did not fit a suitcase that always travel on top because is small suitcase terrible I will never travel again with amercan airlines"
Pros: "All was good with the flight. It was a bit cramped, but it was an old full flight. Not a big deal"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Cons: "I could not get the Wi-Fi to work even though I paid for 24 hours of it there was a different Wi-Fi Carrier on this flight than the flight from Munich to Philadelphia, he did not recognize me and even the free shows I could not get to work it had 3 different site said it told me the log in to in none of them work on my cell."
Pros: "Smooth flight, good food"
Pros: "Stairs cause me tremendous pain due to a 4 year misdiagnosed ruptured SI joint. Usually, we have no way of knowing that our flight will end with a downstairs walk rather than a ramp. I emailed American Airlines last week but hadn’t gotten a response yet so when they announced that we would exit by stairs, I was almost in tears as I gathered my belongings. To my surprise, American Airlines had a ramp for us to use. I don’t know it it was a coincidence or if they responded that quickly knowing I was on the plane through todays’s technology. I will be a fan and a customer forever."
Cons: "On time, loaded quickly,ramp access to exit the plane."
Pros: "USB port at seat. Smooth ride and landing. Complimentary wine."
Cons: "Some of the typical unfriendly flight attendants. No way to get comfortable on the 10-hour flight. Horrible movie and other "entertainment" selections. Had to wait about 45 minutes on the tarmac after landing because they couldn't get an available gate for our scheduled flight. Beats the 5 HOUR delay on the flight out to Athens though. I have to say that's all the usual American Airlines incompetence. The cockpit crew always seem great though. I don't fly American unless I have to."
Pros: "There’s no usb charger for my phone.there is no Monitor in front of me"
Pros: "Efficient and on time! Courteous and professional travel assistants. Nice job. Nice new planes too!"
Cons: "Traveling as family of 5 - booked tickets two months ahead and we did not sit together despite me selecting seats when I booked. They were cheap seats so I can’t complain too much but felt that could have been accomplished given the advance booking."
Pros: "Announcements clear pleasant staff decent food"
Cons: "All was well"
Cons: "Every leg of my journey was frought with issues. From weather delays to maintenance issues. The biggest issue I have is that invariably when I fly American, if I go through Charlotte, is on the whole inconvenient. It takes way to Long to get to a gate when you land. And while everyone is apologetic, I would prefer they didn't have to be."
Pros: "The stewardesses were very polite and helpful"
Pros: "Legroom, interactive lcd screens on seat headrests. Would fly again, affordable as well."
Cons: "difficult connecting to wifi."
Pros: "Was impressed with the legroom, and complimentary in-flight entertainment. I am a big dude (6'4" - 230lbs), and I found it enjoyable to have room for my knees (I feel like there are a number of airlines where my knees are in the seat in front of me). The crew were very pleasant; they worked to move the people in my row so I wouldn't have to be squished between another guy (also a big dude)."
Cons: "I wish the snacks were better. I would love some complimentary fruit options."
Pros: "Movies online you had is always awesome"
Cons: "Space on planes are ridiculous"
Pros: "Check in staff were very good.Lots of entertainment choices. Very comfortable seating,was worth the extra price."
Cons: "I went to check in with Iberia airlines as the flight information said. Desk was closed. Went to American airlines as suggested by airport staff, which was correct. Completely different terminal,we were lucky we had 3 hours between connections, the whole process took over an hour. Very confusing. The plane was American Airlines, Iberia was not mentioned anywhere else,very confusing. Dinner was served within an hour of taking off at 11pm, which we didnt have, but then nothing until an hour before landing and very hurried. Staff had been very busy chatting in the galley. No snacks available. Had a group of rowdy and rude passengers near us, not alcohol related. I think staff shoud have had a word with them, it looked like they didnt want to know, another passenger finaly did after 5 patient hours. Arrived in London, our bags did not. Staff were good. They found the error straight away. They delivered them to our home the next day which was a very good service."
Pros: "The calmness and assurance from the cockpit was promising"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not pleasant at all. They had know clue what to do during the flight emergency."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "Inadequate overhead baggage space."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "That the armrest came up."
Cons: "The landing, having to check my luggage and receiving it banged up when I saw more spaces for my luggage on the overhead compartment, the pilot not mentioning turbulence, no entertainment, flight attendants not being observant for persons not buckled in, last but certainly not the least...the flight delay."
Cons: "delayed and missed connecting flight"
Pros: "Nothing in particular. They got me there."
Cons: "The usual stuff. Uncomfortable. Worse than riding a bus."
Pros: "Was quick once we figured out what airline to check into."
Cons: "We arrived at the Finnair desk to find no one. Wasn't told to go to a American Airlines desk until standing in line for awhile. Could've miss s our flight due to this miscommunication. Also, could not check in online through Finnair, nor American. The whole process was very confusing."
Pros: "Started when 7 am flight from Knoxville was delayed - multiple times until finally at 4 PM there were no options. Nobody with AA saying a single word all this time even when asked. Finally called their customer service line only to learn that I could get on another flight that left in a few minutes. Door was still open but gate agent argued with the lady on 800 line about who could ticket faster. By time they finished arguing the door closed. That began a 14 hour nightmare of bumping between flights and delays and the inevitable lost luggage. Paid for $300 hotel room at Vancouver that I will get to stay in for 4 hours. Will NEVER fly American again"
Cons: "Service, poor rebooking process, lack of communication."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "JAL is customer oriented and it's always a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, though the return trip is also JAL, the cabin crew isn't."
Pros: "It was a fairly routine flight. Could use a more substantial snack for a four hour flight."
Cons: "While waiting for our baggage in Phoenix, we noticed a few random bags with tears, rips and clothes hanging out. Then we saw our suitcase. The zipper was torn away from the lining so that it no longer closes all the way. There items hanging out of the gap. What was happening in the basement that caused at least 4 damaged bags?"
Pros: "Swift boarding."
Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled. My rescheduleday flight was delayed and I missed my connection and had to spend the night in the airport. My 2 1/2 hour flight turned into a 16 hour trip."
Pros: "I lucked out and was able to get a emergency row seat which helped tremendously because of having long legs."
Cons: "What I don't like is what is true of all airlines now and that is that if you are born with long legs you are penalized and expected to pay more money than people with short legs - that is prejudice and not fair to people that cannot do anything about it. I understand charging obese people extra because they have a chance to change it. Also, seats are too narrow now!!!"
Cons: "Prices, of course. No one wants to pay the prices. My company is small and we check pricing all the time."
Cons: "seating was very uncomfortable crew was extremely rude no entertainment at all for the 5 hours flight"
Pros: "All flights were on time and the flight each way was very quick."
Cons: "AA wants to charge $75 to change tickets to take an earlier flight. Plenty of seats available on the earlier flight, while standby passengers not able to get onto the later flight. I lost 4 hours, AA lost revenue, standby passengers stuck in Philly. Also, no air conditioning on this flight."
Pros: "Staff was courteous, efficient, and professional. Plane was clean and the seats seemed roomier too. Pilot was excellent. He made up considerable time once we were in the air."
Cons: "Flight kept getting delayed."
