Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"

So spent flight in last seat in back next to bathroom, while 2 comfort + seats were empty. Did not feel like a valued customer."
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"

Pros: "Excellent customer service. Friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Seats where still small in business and first class."
Cons: "Hard to get comfortable even in easy comfort but easy comfort is better than typica arats."
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "I would never fly Delta again! What you have done to the leg room, seating reminds of living in a third world country!"
Cons: "Very dated plane. First class seat was worn, crooked, and uncomfortable. No entertainment offered. Almonds or biscuit cookies were the only food options."
Cons: "Efficient and comfortable all I ask for"
Pros: "All crew was great"
Cons: "We lost checked bag or it was taken, will loss a half day shopping for replacements. Compensation policy very unclear, not counting on getting any."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment."
Pros: "Pleasant crew, newer plane, and very efficient travel time"
Cons: "The boarding process was extremely slow, "Comfort Plus" seats in the smaller regional jet were definitely not worth the upgrade."
Pros: "lte leaving Houston, cancelled flight back from Atlanta, reset to 3 hrs later, wound up leaving 12 hrs later."
Cons: "Reservation. Checkin. Seating. Flight."
Pros: "Entertainment is now free."
Cons: "This was the fourth first class leg of our overall trip and the first three flights on Delta were great. The attendants were pleasant and even fun. I have allergies and requested a special meal on all legs. No problem on the first three flights. All attendants approached me to confirm my allergy and the special meal. They were very polite. But on this flight, the attendant didn't speak with me about it at all. She tried to give me the regular meal. When I explained I needed an allergy free meal (mind you this was first class), I was told I could not get it and got no apology or other accommodation. Her attitude was take it or leave it. I found this interesting since on two of the other flights an announcement was made about another passenger with an allergy to peanuts so no one could have them on the flights and the attendants were very concerned."
Pros: "Plenty of complimentary drinks and snacks. Even complimentary Earbud Style HEAD-SETS !"
Pros: "Loved the 757 layout with 5 first class rows and then economy plus to the left of the entrance door."
Pros: "Very clean aircrafts"
Cons: "Don't like how you have to pay extra to pick your seat. This is something that budget airlines usually do, so I was surprised Delta did this. I was unable to sit with my boyfriend, because we elected not to pay additional fees to pick our seats, yet there were many open seats on our plane. I would choose United over Delta, as they don't force you to pay extra to sit with those you are traveling with."
Cons: "Delta Flight #1661 I paid for 1st class. My first flight was late so I arrived at the gate after boarding began. When the gate attendant scanned my ticket another printed. When he handed me the ticket my seat had changed to seat 25E. I told the attendant that I had paid for first class. He asked me to step aside while he contacted his supervisor, Joe. Then I had to wait until ENTIRE flight had boarded which defeated part of the reason I paid for the upgrade. This was on top of the fact I was so thirsty because 1st flight didn't have drink service and because it was late I had to book it to the connection arriving sweaty, hot and needing to use the bathroom. I was told they had given my seat away to someone as a free upgrade. Joe offered me a $100 voucher to take other seat which was less than I paid for 1st class, plus the seat was a middle seat in the rear of the plane. When I told him as much, he tried to manipulate me by telling me that they would have to kick someone out of my seat. When I declined the downgrade, they made me stand by while they kicked someone out of my seat which was embarrassing and humiliating. Then, when they handed me a new boarding pass, it was not the seat I had paid for and selected, instead it was in the first row, which I’ve always hated because there is no under seat storage and I cannot keep my backpack with me. When I pay for first class, it is primarily so that I can board first and so that I have extra room to work (which I need access to my bag to do). While I was trying to take out the minimum of the things I needed from my bag and figure out how to manage without it, 3 times a flight attendant told me they had to take my bag (since I was the last person to board they tried to prevent me from using the bathroom and they were anxious to leave early). I tried to explain that Delta had prevented me from boarding earlier and that they gave away the seat I paid for which was NOT the first row."
Pros: "Games and videos were good. Food was ok."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Need at least another 2 inches."
Cons: "We need food"
Cons: "No masks"
Pros: "I was moved up to seat 9E from 16E move leg room makes a difference"
Cons: "I had started a movie on the earlier flight but I could not finish it because it was not offered on this flight"
Cons: "Entertainment screen and WiFi both not working for entire flight"
Pros: "Slight delay in leaving"
Cons: "Baggage claim took 30-45 minutes after deplaning"
Pros: "Great crew, very attentive."
Pros: "Honestly, Nothing!"
Cons: "Most terrible flying experience all around. I will never fly American airlines again."
Cons: "Instead of taking my one half of one ounce plastic cup half-full of wine, the stewad, allowed me to keep it. I love common sense."
Cons: "Need to have handheld device to watch entertainment. Terribly uncomfortable. Delay getting out of Dallas."
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Pros: "Only a small 20 minute delay - things went rather smoothly"
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, polite & effective crew, functional aircraft, nice weather"
Pros: "Comfy seats and legroom in first class"
Cons: "Expected more than cookies for food in first class."
Cons: "The flight attendant closed all the overhead bin doors...even though there was room in them and she INDICATED as much...so why did she close them DURING the ongoing boarding process. Very strange and very dumb!"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "Central movie screen like its 1995"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable American airlines is the worst"
Pros: "Flight was on time and not cancelled."
Cons: "AA does not consider USPHS Officers as military despite beer mg defines as such in the Servicemember Civil Relief Act. All to make a dollar."
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: "Crew was nicw"
Pros: "Fast trip!"
Cons: "We were delayed because of a broken tray table and then the broken tray table was mine. But we made it, and the flight was good, so it was fine."
Pros: "Customer Service, movies & comfortable seats"
Pros: "I found the crew to be nice and friendly and the breakfast was good."
Cons: "It seems like American Airlines has lived up to its reputation. More seats in a plane and less comfort. On top of that, the entertainment system has not been upgraded since the 70's. TV monitors in the middle and everyone has to watch the same thing. Of course, the sound system did not work for one entire side of the plane so I could only watch the movie and not hear it. If you are not going to have individual monitors for each seat, allow your passengers to what from their mobil devises like almost all other airlines are doing."
Cons: "Our luggage was ruined and our stuff inside in bubble wrap was smashed to bits!"
Pros: "Nice flight, great leg room, staff was friendly and flight was on time."
Pros: "change to larger aircraft meant more room."
Cons: "change to larger aircraft caused significant delay without option to disembark while maintenance was being done. Also time between connections was too tight."
Cons: "Plane kept circling Laguadia and turbulence made everyone nervous"
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."
Cons: "First of all, the announcements that come on after we take off and last for 20 minutes is very annoying. We have brains, we can figure out how to plug our head phones in to watch the inflight entertainment. After saying the “show” was going to start, it never did. The screens were down the whole time and it remained black. good thing I had my phone with a movie on it, or I would be very bored for the 3 1/2 hour flight. Never flying with American Airlines again."
Cons: "3 hours stuck on the tarmac before giving up on repairs and switching aircraft"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Cons: "Flight departed approximately 5 hours late, excuses given by employees didn't make sense."
Pros: "Exit seat"
Cons: "Canceled flight after many hours butting was obvious it was. It going to happen from the start. Asked for a hotel and none offered but many others on same flight for a room from AA. Rebooked for the next day an airport an hour away from original destination and had to provide my own transportation to destination. Finally they lost my luggag."
Pros: "The meals were pretty decent and I loved that I was given chocolates during the flight."
Pros: "I got there safe and there was some entertainment"
Cons: "seats small and not real comfortable."
Pros: "The service and the food was great and getting to watch new release movies was a pleasant bonus"
Cons: "We did not get the seats we purchased but we did get a refund"
Pros: "Flight attendets were great, friendly, helpful, made me feel very welcoming, it made such a great experience. Thank you."
Cons: "There was no wifi"
Cons: "Only one plane really gave me a bad experience. The plane was pretty old and cramped and the crew was very rude. Maybe they were having a bad day or didn't want to be in the old plane either, but their performance was bad. One of the attendants, I think his name was Juju, asked me is a soft voice if I would like a drink. With the engines roaring in the background I thought he asked have you been served a drink? I responded "No, I have not." And he started off serving everyone else. I had to call him and asked if he was skipping me and he replied "I asked you if you wanted a drink and you said No!" I explained the engines were loud and I mistaken his words and with an attitude he served me a drink. For the whole 9hr flight I avoided him at all cost and just responded to the other attendants. The other attendants seemed annoyed and would roll their eyes or make a face when people would try to pass them on the aisle, but I in their defense, they were moving a large cart in a small aisle. Passengers should have waited until the aisle was clear before moving. That was my only issue. The next flight was better with no problems."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Pain in the neck to make sure seats are next to others in same booking!!!"
Pros: "My two Grandchildren and Daughter and Son in Law were bumped from first class due to change in equipment. There was no refund or other compensation offered at the gate. Agent said to contact AA customer service."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "I would like to be able to let the passenger next to me to close the shade. He slept , the sun was not in his face ."
Pros: "The staff was so nice and helped me find my way around."
Cons: "Food prices a bit high when compared to buying the same thing outside the airport."
Cons: "Me cambiaron de asiento arbitrariamente, yo hice check in 24 horas antes para escoger los asientos que me acomodaban a mí y mi acompañante de 12 años ( los primeros) y resulta que por un cambio de avión me dieron los últimos al lado del baño. Lo que fue horrible, el olor, los pasajeros haciendo fila al lado de mi asiento todo el tiempo, sin poder descansar o estar tranquila. Comprendo que pueden haber descompuestos en el avión y cambiarlo por otro pero al menos al re asignar asientos deberían ver los lugares iniciales que tenía cada uno y no dejar a quienes habían solicitado con anticipación los primeros en el último, literalmente en los últimos puestos. Además la comida es bastante mala."
Cons: "Cancelled, had to stay in Dallas until next day"
Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."
Pros: "Delays caused a little stress but all in all a good experience."
Cons: "Late arrival to DCA."
Pros: "I was in group 2"
