Long time taxi’ing on runway and took over an hour to get our bags after getting off airplane
I made it to gate right before they closed the gates and still got put on the next available flight BUT let two other people go in who were behind me on the line. So disappointed.
Crew was nice and accommodating, but someone failed to inspect the plane before the passengers got on and we ended up deplaning and changing planes when this could have been avoided.
Pros: "The entertainment choice on AA and the in flight wifi are super! The flight attendants were impeccable."
Cons: "My flight was supposed to be on May 26 but I got bumped! The counter at Lax was completely UNDERSTAFFED! At one time the three customer service representatives were stuck with ‘difficult cases’ for over 20 minutes - the line did not move AT ALL! With roughly 75 passengers in line this is unacceptable. I sprang into action and demanded quicker service from the supervisor Seth telling him that people are going to miss their flights. He showed no people skills and decided to be confrontative, inquiring since when I was in line and telling me that I should have come earlier; he did admit that he was understaffed that day but could not do anything about it. After having waiting in line for 1 hour it took the representative too long to check out my Covid Test done by the company AA partnered with - and because of a missing ‘entry registration’ and the use of my married name on the Covid Test instead of my maiden name on my passport ( I had documentation to prove the validity of both names) I stood no chance to rectify any of it as the cut off time for the flight had approached. Instead I was issued a ticket for the next day. No smile, no empathy - I really felt treated like cattle...When I came to the same counter the next day the wait to see a customer service representative was 10 minutes!!!! Which proves my point that they were completely understaffed on May 26! And I had to get a hotel at LAX! On the flight on the 27 May I found the breakfast on board to be very disappointing: no bread, no deli meat and no cheese but yoghurt instead."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, the aircraft had been recently refurbished (interior had new paneling), and the seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Snacks/food was virtually non-existent. A tiny water bottle and pretzels in a clear plastic bag; no flavored beverages (juice/soda). Wasn't offered headphones on this flight, although I was offered them on the outbound; I've mixed feelings about that, as I had headphones, but they were in my carryon. Prefer built-in IFE rather than Bring-Your-Own-Device, as a smartphone is inferior to a large touchscreen."
Pros: "Not much maybe just the boarding"
Cons: "The staff needs to be retrained a lot like many police personal and subsequent Police departments. The first class is literally coach with a slightly nicer seat. They treat you like cattle at American Airlines. If you have another option take it."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "No beverages! I should be able to purchase a can of beer! I am willing to pay the outrageous cost of $8 for one can and still not able to do that! Ridiculous and I believe they are using the virus excuse to save money !"
Pros: "Absolutely positively nothing."
Cons: "Everything literally!! Plane down for maintenance, rebooked four times and not willing to spend 48 hours in an airport due to incompetence. Never flying American Airlines. Will use Delta from now on."
Cons: "The crew seemed like they didn’t know what they were doing."
Pros: "Inability to move up seat given 6’0 height and several available."
Cons: "Worst turbulence ever."
Pros: "Crew was nice. I bought two seats so that I would be comfortable Also the in flight Wi-Fi was a nice touch"
Cons: "Fight was delayed; possibly due to weather Wish the economy seats had just a little more legroom for those of us who are taller"
Cons: "Delayed. Sat on the airplane for over an hour after already being delayed 30 to board the plane."
Cons: "The plane was broke and had to wait an hour and half did another one"
Pros: "The pilot did great job.brought us before time."
Cons: "Pay extra for bag :( No video screen No food The check in area was mooved without notice."
Pros: "Nice crew, more legroom, punctuality"
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
Cons: "We had a very rough landing into Fort Lauderdale on 3/29/19. Pretty sure we had a new pilot. It felt like she was going too fast and didn't slow the plane down enough as we were descending d threw on the brakes feeling like the plane wasn't going to stop. Very scary! Return flight was much better."
Pros: "Uneventful as it should be!"
Cons: "Non functioning personal lights for reading etc."
Pros: "The person I sat next to was kind, as was the crew."
Cons: "The seats in economy are too close to the row in front and too narrow. You can barely move. Its claustrophobic, even for a person not prone to it. I had to upgrade my seat to avoid this as I was in those horrid seats on the trip over. Crew from the late arriving flight should have announced the connecting flight delay well before landing at DFW. The flight should have been held for 20 minutes, as it appeared that the majority of the passengers affected were able to clear customs and arrive at the gate in time."
Pros: "Your crew was friendly, attentive and efficient. Flight was excellent and the pilot kept us informed."
Cons: "food selection was minimal. Wanted one of the fresh plates, but there was only hummus and crackers."
Pros: "Basic flight. Super uncomfortable seats. Older plane. Cramped. Pilot was great. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Got there safe!"
Pros: "Very comfortable, affordable, nice staff! On time. Will fly AA again."
Pros: "A lot of food"
Cons: "Didn't make it clear food/drink would be included. Crappy boarding people. No movies on seats!! Super small seats"
Pros: "But the crew was great!"
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."
Cons: "One poor attitude flight attendant."
Cons: "I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it."
Pros: "Worst experience food is very bad"
Pros: "I made it home."
Cons: "No entertainment on the flight, no plugs so my phone died, as I almost missed this flight due to my first leg being late, so I was very bored on this plane."
Pros: "Food on time. Good Food. Good Entertainment like watching movies. Top priority for Diabetes or any other patients."
Cons: "Little guidelines for new comers especially while changing the flights."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"
Pros: "Full flight which is to be expected flying in to Orlando. Badly done seating, I think every group was separated from at least one person in their party. Several people weren't given seat assignments until time to board, even if other people in their party were assignments seats when checking in. No ecplanaation of why. In flight entertainment was an older movie. No options, and no sound if you forgot your own headphones."
Cons: "The seating assignments of lack thereof."
Cons: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "As will sometimes happen, aircraft was delayed over and over again. After an announcement that a new aircraft "might"arrive but we may have to fly the next day, I had my travel agent book a flight with Southwest. Only reason ever given was that there was an "odor" on the aircraft....awesome. I know aircraft issues happen, but the communication was horrible."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "The staff was rude. I witnessed a crew member yelling at a a pregnant lady for trying to use the first class restroom when the other restroom was blocked off because there was a cart in the way. I also had a crew member yell because I put a water bottle in her trash bag. She literally yelled "I'm standing here," which I am still not sure what she meant by that. I was definitely taken back by how rude the staff was. I have never had an experience like that with United or Virgin,"
Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Pros: "AA has. Not been an airline I have used in many years. Great experience, I will be looking to fly with them again very soon."
Pros: "Pilot info/smooth flight."
Pros: "No internet on long light!!!!"
Pros: "I met someone who was going to a university I used to attend from South Africa. I enjoyed the entertainment selection and the fact that the flight was quiet and peaceful."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence on the plane ride a couple of times during the 8 hour flight."
Cons: "We were delayed by a mechanical then we waited another hour after that until they finally decided to take some people off because we were weight restricted. Then we waited another hour while they changed their minds and brought us back to the gate to get the people back. Then when we got into SFO at 1 am we had to wait because they had another plane parked at out gate."
Cons: "Cancelled flight, not notified in timely manner. Delayed Five hours due to be placed on connecting flights instead of a direct flight which is what I paid for."
Pros: "I arrived on time."
Cons: "No personal l TVs. Salty soulless flight attendants. No AC power or wifi even in main cabin economy comfort. Tbis old plane needs to be retired or renovated."
