Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the stewardess took good active care of us"

Pros: "quick ontime boarding"
Pros: "nothing lousy flight"
Cons: "treat people with respect"
Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Airline to be more user friendly with connecting to free entertainment"
Pros: "The movie options they have"
Cons: "More comfortable seats & better food"
Pros: "The entertainment and crew in flight(not the ticket crew)"
Cons: "First of all, We were delayed 5 hours, I did not know finnair was operated by American Airlines(I wouldn’t never bought this thickets) we so many issues with AA in the past that we refused to fly with them, on top of all this they were trying to split us up(2 times) I bought 2 ticket for a reason..."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "It was too warm and a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "miserable. Flight."
Pros: "Good overall service level of AA"
Cons: "USB-, and Audio plugs are misplaced in the AA Premium Economy seats. Acrobatic skills required to connect/disconnect devices"
Pros: "The flight crew was terrific, and the pilot provided good information on the cause of the delay, and expected deoarture and arrival."
Cons: "We were 80 minutes late leaving Portland. Fortunately I did not have a connecting flight and the late arrival was a nuisance and not a problem."
Pros: "direct flight"
Cons: "OLLLLLLLLD AIRPLANES"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "i arrived alive"
Cons: "My flight was delayed on the way to Puerto Plata on 9/9 which made me miss an entire day and I was billed for a stay at the resort. I was booked to a crappy room in MIA that I had to get changed to another hotel. THEN my departing flight from Puerto Plata back to the US was delayed 2 plus hours (as was the first flight) due to a flat tire that had to be replaced. I missed my connecting flight and had to be placed on the next flight to DCA which was the last flight. This experience was the worst. I do not have a favorable opinion of American, of which I have flown this airline for years."
Pros: "Fine for a domestic flight. Normally, American Airlines offer a small snack to go with the drinks. But on this particular flight, they went the United way and offered nothing but drinks. Crew was pleasant enough during the flight, although they didn't greet half of the passengers entering or exiting the plane."
Cons: "Flight was a little late taking off and therefore getting to Denver. But there was no announcement about it. There was one announcement from the captain, but it was so soft that I couldn't hear anything. Upon landing and arriving at the gate, we stood there for a while with no lights on and seatbelt sign on, but no explanation of what was going on. There was no welcome to Denver message either. Maybe their announcement system was down."
Pros: "Boarding the plane was incredibly fast. As for the crew, I got an iffy energy from one of the crew members whom I felt was trying to play on my intelligence."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Pros: "Flight attendants were the best ever."
Cons: "Entertainment set up was confusing and slow. Headphones didn’t work. Seat didn’t recline."
Pros: "It was on time. I liked the head rests on the seats."
Pros: "Staff very professional, everything else went as planned. That's all one needs."
Cons: "We had a hard time hearing (clarity of speech) announcements over the intercom at the gate & on the plains (specially when the captain spoke). Nothing life threatening, but wouldn't want to miss something important."
Pros: "Nice crew, very reasonable cost. Didn’t like the “no overhead access” but worth it for the money I saved."
Cons: "The seats are ridiculously crowded. It’s really so uncomfortable and claustrophobic, even for shorter flights."
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Cons: "Food was dreadful and plane was very cold and that was in first class"
Pros: "One was great and one was not helpful and was condescending"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing was good about this flight."
Cons: "An 8 hour delay to get from DFW to DC, after an 18 hour flight from Sydney. No one knew where the plane was and the delay changed from 3 hours, to 5 hours to finally 8 hours. The former, refitted United Airlines plane, with no frills, no electric outlets, uncomfortable seats, and the joke that is the "recline" position."
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Pros: "on schedule"
Cons: "uncomfortable sits impossible to sleep (red eye flight)"
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to text via free WiFi in the sky. Oddly, this same service is unable to be acquired, once you’re in the United States. Leave it to Mexico, a beautiful country that’s struggling with so much poverty, to offer up free internet service instead of some silly $20 per flight deal which occurs once you cross into (at least on the surface) the wealthy, not so poverty stricken, USA! AMERICA! America, the same America that the side of the plane you’re flying in, is so proudly representing. Rich, powerful, fair America needs the extra $20!"
Cons: "I loved all of it. I have nothing to complain about. Thanks for a great experience!! Except, if there’s any way that I can extend a complaint about the Cozumel airport... I was SO disappointed that they no longer carry those delicious Doritos, that can only be found in Mexico. Their stores stopped carrying them and I nearly died of sadness! Just kidding guys. I had a great experience and I love Cozumel airport. It’s one of my favorites, honestly."
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like is that he have any fresh food they said something was going on in LA that prevented him from giving us actual food other than that everything else was fine"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment. Delayed"
Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"
Pros: "it was ok"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat but had to sit in different spot. Set in isle seat"
Cons: "Was disappointed to learn after buying a British airways ticket that we were only on American Airlines flights. The seats were very uncomfortable and we did not get personal screens which seems uncommon for an international flight."
Cons: "We didn't fly Finnair. All of my emails said Finnair and then when arrived at the Finnair counter they didn't have my family registered. After some panicking, we were told to try American Airlines. That is who we flew with, not Finnair"
Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"
Pros: "Service was not only on time we landed early as oppose to me losing 1300 usd on my original flight to dallas for work Friday which I didn't make and cost me out of pocket"
Pros: "Free drinks!!!"
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Arrived. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat too small, cramped leg room. Was told there was no space for my carry-on and to check it, but there was plenty of space when I got on plane."
Pros: "Great crew, early boarding and early departure."
Cons: "Not every seat has electrical outlets. very few poorly spaced screens. Food is average. Seats don't reckine very far. I'm told it's worth catching the British Air flight from Philly bc the planes are better with a screen at each seat"
Pros: "Amazingly, the flight wasn't full and the stewardess let my wife, 2 month old son and me have the last row."
Cons: "Entertainment on AA is sub-par"
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"

Pros: "Flight was on time."
Pros: "Everything was fine for the short flight. Plane left in time schedule. The crew was friendly."

Pros: "Coming back can't say anything coz everything's alright"
Cons: "Going to New Zealand we're delayed an 1 1/2 that's all I experienced in my first time flying with qantas. But the rest are very good. Myrna"
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."

Cons: "My one time United club passes were not honored. Everything is an upcharge. Newark airport is awful going terminal to terminal by bus."
Pros: "Everything worked the way it should. In contrast to the United flight from Newark to Berlin that was supposed to go on May 4 and ended up going on May 5, having been cancelled at 1:45 AM"
Cons: "The only very minor difficulty on the flight from Berlin to Newark was that the announcements were not always audible."
Cons: "Kayak's third party CS company gives me the ANA schedule while in fact I have to check in with United Airlines. Because of this, I was not able to check in on line in San Diego. Please ensure that Kayak & their affiliate are well coordinated with the information they send out to customers."
Pros: "Excellent crew and snacks, we were on time, actually arrived early in Boston."
Cons: "The strong exhaust fumes while in the gate was really uncomfortable. It finally cleared once under way but 10 minutes of breathing it was not pleasant."

Pros: "The fact that the flight was very smooth, easy landing and we were on the same flight with our friends."

Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "Wasn't able to find my luggage as fast"
Pros: "The flight was on time and our luggage arrived on time."
Cons: "There's not much attention to friendliness any longer. The stewardess isn't any longer interested in making you feel welcomed. Seats are now so cramed together that you can barely lower your tray unless of course you want to pay an extra $100."
Pros: "Staff was friendly. And,Handicap assistance was good."
Cons: "Check in was very complicated & inconvienent! They wouldn't accept my gift bank card. Then we had to pay for a card because they didnt accept cash either,& nowhere,to get,cash. My husband had to leave &get money out,which took a,half hour-no easy way to check in."
Pros: "The crew was polite and offered an extra six ounces of water in addition to the usual beverage service. The flight departed and arrived on time, which is a rarity when dealing with ORD."
Cons: "The cabin was near 80 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes of boarding. During the boarding process and taxiing, the DirecTV add ran theee times. The commercial was annoying and loud. Once would be enough."
Pros: "Staff and the pilot got us to our destination safely and with out complications."
Pros: "Staff was so hospitable"
Cons: "Crying baby"
Pros: "Being a red eye, they were too busy congregating among themselves and chatting away.. when requested for a beverage, the service was as though they were doing a big favor and the guests on-board were disturbing them..!!"
Pros: "Attendant was nice."
Cons: "Unexpected, unannounced delay put us into Chicago 30 minutes late. I was scheduled to have a 45 minute layover, now down to 15. I was given no support getting to my next gate, that plane was not held despite the fact that I ran across the terminal to catch it."
Pros: "Crew was lovely."
Cons: "Seats BARELY reclined, and leg room was minimal. The whole flight was very uncomfortable even for someone who's only 5'3" who flys regularly. Also, no in flight entertainment for a long flight. Total fail."
Pros: "Boarding went well. Lots of empty seats, so i had the whole row to myself."
Cons: "There was nearly a 3-hour delay because the plane was late arriving from Newark. Take-off was very bumpy;plane dropped and shuddered for a minute or so Considering the small number of passengers, the flight attendants didn't spread their time around any more. Just before the end of the flight, a crew member came offered a glass of water. It tasted so bad that I had to bring it to the back and dump it. The lfight attendant wouldn;t take it' he told me to wait for the next member with a trash bag."
Cons: "Seat are very cramped. I'm short and hardly ever complain about leg room but it was terrible."
Cons: "The United flight out of LaFayette left late. We told them we had a connecting flight to Phoenix. They told us to "run". We ran about a half mile to the other gate for them to say we were too late. So yeah stuck overnight in Houston and not sleeping in my own bed tonight and missing work tomorrow morning. Not acceptable."
Pros: "Got us here early, smooth ride"
Pros: "Really short flight. Everything was up to par."
Pros: "I'm not a frequent flyer so I can only compare to my 2 United trips (1 last year and the most recent) but the experience was great. Thanks"
Pros: "The flights were all on time, we had no problem getting through TSA, despite the fact that the airport tonight open until 4 AM for our 530 departure from Lafayette, Louisiana . United agents were there to get us through quickly at 4:15 AM. Because we were being met in Managua at noon and moving in with families that afternoon, there was a little margin for error."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Flight on time, bathroom was clean. Flight attendants did their jobs, but were arrogant"
Cons: "I checked in online and was asked to pay $25 for my 1 checked bag, but was told at airport i shouldnt have been charged bcuz 1st checked bag is free. Why did i have to pay $25?"
Cons: "Seated in the last row of plane and was continuously bumped by flight attendant as she delivered drinks."
Pros: "The time of departure was 5:30 AM, and I was concerned that we'd have trouble with TSA, competing with other early morning flights at a small airport whose terminal only opens at 4 AM. But the United ticket counter handled us efficiently and we were seated in the boarding area at 4:25."
Cons: "Nothing to not like. Everything went smoothly and we arrived in Nicaragua on time and the rest of our complicated plans for the day went perfectly. And that wouldn't have happened if we had run into glitches."
Pros: "Flying across the country is always kind of a miracle. Lots of babies an toddlers on this flight and they all slept. Flying now is like Greyhound bus with wings."
Cons: "No meal served, coffee tasted burned, cramped seat didn't recline. They sold out of alot of the food choices"
Cons: "Code share between United and Air Canada, operated by Mesa. Many troubles finding the correct website. Confirmation number changed once.
