Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Flight did not take place because of cancelled return flight. the whole itinerary was cancelled."
Cons: "because of cancelled flight I had to schedule a new itinerary directly through American Airlines. The cost increased from $947.50 to $1,873 plus airport parking for 17 days."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely, and American provided us with extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Service was curt and there was only phone-based entertainment."
Pros: "The pilot was great. Avoided turbulence and arrived about 20min early. Easy to find seat and stow bag. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Alaska airlines was who I thought I was riding with but the itinerary changed past min. Gate change and the airline itself was changed. Really confusing since I printed my boarding pass the night before."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. On time flight"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks:("
Cons: "Me 6’ 200 lb sitting in middle seat next to somebody that needed 2 seats for self (pls understand I’m not unsensetive nor prejudice just stating a fact). I requested to sit in last row (of both sides of plane that were empty but attendant said sears reserved for attendants - 2)."
Cons: "Flight connections time was not enough for mam with infant.we missed the flight should better set up that kind of big airport"
Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."
Pros: "Spacious seats"
Pros: "Mostly friendly staff and quick flight time."
Cons: "Only half the plane got snacks and drinks. Additionally, I was forced to check my bag, which is a pretty big deal because I was connecting to an international flight and was unable to retrieve my prescriptions in all the rush to check my bag."
Pros: "I was so happy I could check in online and boarding was a breeze. I actually got to sit by the window when my original seat was in the middle. So nice of the ladies to suggest it to me."
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "The video monitor for my seat was broken. So, low entertainment score."
Pros: "everything was on tyime"
Pros: "On time take off"
Pros: "A nonstop flight, with a friendly efficient crew, met my expectations. A crew member went above and beyond when I asked for a coffee stirrer with my coke and ice."
Cons: "I've been spoiled by another airline's access to screens on the back of the headrest. I have my own hand held devices to entertain myself instead."
Cons: "Flight was late, got a message from Kayak that it was delayed 3 hours...thank goodness I happened to check again, because then it was only delayed for 41 mins, then it gave me an update that it was only 21 mins delayed, then went back to 41! Pretty inconvenient, and it would have been nice to get a text, not just some silent pop up"
Pros: "Got to La Guardia almost 26 minutes early but then waited FORTY minutes for the gate!"
Cons: "AA needs better coordination with the horrible La Guardia airport"
Cons: "Delayed a total of four hous!"
Pros: "Flight was on time, staff was friendly and boarding was organized."
Cons: "I'm a small person (5'-2", 105lbs) and I didn't have room to breathe in that tiny little seat."
Pros: "Smooth - trouble free - calm process"
Pros: "Arrived to the airport well ahead of time and encountered lines so long that we were not able to make our flight. Only 2 attendants working and so many people had to be rebooked we didn't get another flight for 3 days. Did I mention I was traveling with a baby?"
Pros: "The flight was short and on time."
Cons: "Airlines should board from the back first. That would eliminate all the jostling of passengers already seated in the front, as well as the clogging of aisles as passengers trying to load their bags into overhead bins or under seats bar the way for passengers with seats behind the people blocking the aisles. It would also make it easier for flight attendants to get to passengers who need assistance. Seats are too narrow for the size of most American passengers. The people next to me on both my flights took up part of my space and pressed against me because their upper bodies were too large to fit in their seat space. Paying to check a bag on a domestic flight is very irritating."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "The storage are very small, by the time i boarded everything was full. I had to hand carry bags and i had to put it in front of me which is a very small space already, on top of that i had the window sit so i had no space to move. it was very uncomfortable, and flight was delayed. We sat there for an hour before taking off but i understand its due to the weather but it was my worst plane ride not worth 300dollars. I will not ride american airline again."
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."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Only suggestion would be to make the connection process a little easier. If the passenger doesn't speak English, the fact you need to print the international ticket in Miami, then re-enter at checkpoint might create confusion."
Pros: "The flight attendants were great and very friendly!"
Cons: "The wifi wasn't very good so I couldn't access the in flight entertainment I also had my own snacks so I didn't buy any food"
Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"
Pros: "On time. Good leg room."
Cons: "Valet flight, i.e. even normal sized carry-on cannot be stowed above the seat We arrived at the gate 20 min before departure, due to TSA delays. But they closed the door and no one was around to even talk to. At least they put us in the next flight.... Still, as we're not checking in any bags, they could have let us in."
Cons: "Got to charlotte with 80 minutes to connect. Sat on the tarmac for 60 waiting for a gate. Missed connection by <5 minutes. Thanks, AA!"
Pros: "Non stop"
Cons: "Boarding took forever, the flight was over 2 hours late which caused me to miss my connecting flight and my military orders were not honored - I still had to pay extra to take all my gear back to my duty station. Never had that issue with any other American airline."
Pros: "Crew was fine even when we had to sit on the ground for 1 1/2 hours for a repair."
Cons: "American Airlines didn't honor my choice of seats."
Cons: "No food or beverages for me. I slept comfortably on my flight"
Pros: "I don't know how airlines get away with all the stipulations and regualations they have in the buying process there is. Otho g I like about the scam artist they are"
Cons: "The fact they they can just make it a policy and then because the employees have to have a job and enforce it blows my mind. 200 dollar transfer fee plus the difference in the ticket when it's over two weeks in advance. You people are scam artist"
Pros: "You provide me with the best ticket prices and to me that was the the most important part of of the trip thx"
Cons: "The airlines charging for your luggage"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room no entertainment so I dozed."
Cons: "People stuffing oversized bags in overhead."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "No Food"
Pros: "One I love free sodies and two I love free sodies with a smile. I definitely got both with this flight crew."
Cons: "Not enough sodies and I couldn't smell my own farts."
Pros: "Frankly there isn't much to say here. After 7 flights in 2 weeks there was only 1 flight with great staff that actually cared about the customers and looked like they enjoyed their job. The rest treated guests with indifference at best."
Cons: "Customer service is dreadful, the planes are so old they still have cigarette lighter charges in first (but of course no adapters), no food/snacks of any significance, and they seemingly cancel flights at a whim with basically no staff to help re-book the lines of guests that have been disrupted. I pity those who loose luggage AA baggage services are flooded with lost baggage they just don't care any more. Seriously its embarrassing how little they care about customer service."
Cons: "We were delayed for 4 hours, due to a mechanical issue. We were not given any forms of reimbursement. I would like a 500.00 voucher."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "Would be nice to know ahead of time if flight is equipped with an in seat television so as to be prepared to bring headphones."
Pros: "We arrived safe."
Cons: "Departure 1.5 hours late. Missed connection. Travel took 16 hours instead of 6 hours."
Cons: "I choose my seat to accommodate a physical condition. My seat was changed at the last minute and that made the flight very uncomfortable."
Pros: "All great."
Pros: "Everything was timely."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I was very pleased that the attendant gave me a free drink since I had a military ID. It was very kind of her."
Cons: "The flight was delayed multiple times. We were never informed as to why this was. It was very frustrating since I had a connecting flight into Tucson from Dallas. I got off the plane with twenty minutes to get to my next flight which was not in the same terminal. The plane was also incredibly hot while we waited to take off, I was beginning to become uneasy and nauseous."
Pros: "Very good service"
Pros: "The flight was fine, no drama. Crew was s great. But damn that is an uncomfortable plane. We were only on it 3 hours and I found the seat to be so short in the seat pan my back and legs were aching an hour in to it. You are really are just pearched on the seat. Also the aisle is extremely narrow. You almost have to walk side ways down it."
Pros: "Lufthansa was great"
Cons: "TSA in SFO treated us like vermin. Issuing confusing orders and barking at us to come and go. I almost cried that I had returned to this beautiful country to be treated like an unwelcome criminal."

Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
