I had a malfunctioning chair that kept automatically going from recline to fully erect and the footrest next quite functioned properly.
This was the worse leg of the flight. It delayed for over an hour due to mechanical issues and lack of ground crew to push the plane for take off. Never thought of this from a giant company such as AA. Definitely a bad experience!😕
Flight cancelled and no other flights available till afternoon next day
American unexpectedly and without any reason moved my and my wife’s seat so that we were 11 rows from our 7 and 9 year old. I tried to get moved back to our original seats and while they were trying to figure out how to do that, someone bought the exit row and we were stuck. It just seems like being a million miler and and a gold elite don’t mean anything anymore.
The first-class flight attendant from LIT to Mia was very professional and a nice older experience attedent .
Pros: "Clear instructions, clean plane, flight on time."
Cons: "Getting food service back on plains."
Cons: "Flight attendant was very aggressive and confrontational."
Cons: "MIA is the worst airport with American Airlines. Had to exit and recheck our bags and everything. Led to us misplacing our duty free thru security. Absolutely will not be flying AA again, or visiting MIA."
Cons: "I wish there were charging ports so I could charge my device on such a long flight."
Cons: "Food was what you’d expect on a plane, wine and beer service was nice. No real entertainment unless you could see the screen on the roof. WiFi was kind of expensive. Cabin crew were very nice"
Pros: "Coach seating is quite cramped."
Cons: "Knowing upgrade options at check-in would be nice."
Cons: "Not more room, just room in general"
Cons: "Flight was delayed about 10 minutes. :("
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Pros: "Crew were amazing despite all the delays throughout the day"
Cons: "The weather lol"
Cons: "Flight attendant was very rude on Flight AA3451 on April 25th"
Pros: "Thankfully they gave out ear buds on the plane"
Cons: "The flight was over booked, at the point of boarding there was no room left on the flight for any carry on’s so they wanted everyone to check bags one particular lady at the gate snatched my husbands boarding pass out of his had and threw it back at him so it landed on the floor. She came back with a checked bag ticket, this bag could have fit under the seat. We would have preferred not to check the bag because it had everything in it we needed access to like medication, ear buds, book, tablet, it also contained my Jewlery and various other things. The lady was extremely rude when I told her I prefer not to check the bag, she said we could take everything out of the bag we needed but that would have been 70 % of what was in the bag, where was I supposed to put all this stuff? My small purse was already full. my husband was upset at her treatment and said something to her and she told us we where welcome to book another flight. I paid a hell of a lot of money on this flight alone plus upgraded our seats with extra legroom. Once on the plane the seating was so crammed, uncomfortable and no legroom. My seat reclined but my husbands did not. I will never fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
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: "Quick boarding, smooth on time flight. Easy access to DC from Reagan airport"
Cons: "Delayed due to no available gate attendant. Limited ground crew."
Pros: "Checking in and boarding the plane went fast and smoothly. The crew was very kind and friendly."
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: "Reasonably comfortable seat. Nice crew"
Cons: "I had a screen with excellent selections but the audio didn’t work. They reset it twice but nothing. Started watching a movie with CC but 40 min in it ‘died’."
Cons: "Plane was cold, seats old and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice staff!"
Cons: "Rediculously boarding process! Packed and unorganized."
Pros: "I liked the expediency of being rescheduled for another flight and the kindness of the American Airlines staff. When I first received my boarding pass, the pass listed gate A24 as the one where my flight was scheduled to depart. The plane destined to depart from Dallas to LAX did not show up. However, a few of us were kindly offered a cot and blankets to sleep on. The next morning I folded the cot and the blankets and found an American Airline staff member who swiftly rescheduled me for another flight to LAX. She did state that the original flight had departed at 11:15 p.m."
Cons: "From around 6 P.M., December 11, 2017, I was at gate A24 - the gate listed as the Departure gate for my return flight to Los Angeles. The last flight that left went to Saint Louis, I believe. There was never a flight to depart from Gate 24 to Los Angeles. I believe the gate may have been changed and for some reason, those who were at Gate 24 were not informed. Also, the travel instructions on the advertisement for scheduling the flight mentioned the ability to carry on luggage for no additional charge. When I received my boarding pass, it stated I was only allowed to carry on baggage that would fit underneath the seat and not in the overhead bin. I had to pay to check my baggage that I thought was free. In spite of the changes, the flight was a good flight. Thank you"
Cons: "For our delay with no information"
Pros: "Plane was comfy and food was good"
Cons: "Boarding in Munich was a nightmare. There was no place to line up and there was only one person checking tickets which resulted in 100s of people trying to push through at same time. After that we had to cram on buses and wait on tarmack for 30mins till plane was ready and then everyone rushed on the plane."
Pros: "Nice meals, attentive staff"
Pros: "Very comfortable cabin,"
Cons: "couldn't get the in flight entertainment to work"
Pros: "It was a larger plane than the first leg of my journey so I did not have to gate-check my carry on luggage."
Cons: "It was a bit of a bumpy flight during take off and landing. Flight was cold, but not freezing - tolerable."
Cons: "Our flight out of Montgomery, AL was cancelled TWICE! We never made it to Charlotte to take this flight. AA was difficult to deal with in rebooking. My family ended up missing several events surrounding my niece's wedding and the individuals with whom I spoke didn't even seem to care."
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Decent communication during delay of previous flight (delay of 4+ hours), friendly and helpful crew on the delayed flight."

Cons: "Food was the worst of any plane I've ever taken"
Cons: "LATAM deboarded me from the flight after I had boarded. They claimed American had cancelled my reservation because they did not think I would make my connection. I ran in order to make it and then instead of offering me information on the next flight they left me stranded with instructions to find American. Terrible, terrible customer service. I will think twice before booking a LATAM flight again."
Cons: "The staff, American airlines did not accommodate me. I purchased a first class ticket American airlines flight was delayed making me late for my connection on another American flight. I was given a coach ticket and told to take it leave it."
Pros: "Good space, the seats reclines almost flat, very close to a dreamliner."
Cons: "The tablet entertainment is complicated."
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "Delay due to maintenance"
Cons: "The wifi entertainment stopped working for me half way through the flight"
Pros: "My trip was awesome and very easy."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Flight to Chicago which was at the same gate took way too long to board. Could not figure out the problem. Took WAY too long to get wheelchairs to unload passengers off the plane that was to take us to Dallas. Sat on the tarmac for additional 20 min. Delay cost me an additional 2 1/2 hours later in Dallas and FIVE hours in London airport!!"

Pros: "Flight was not full so i got two seats to myself. Movie selections was great, and crew was great ."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant smooth flight take off and landing."
Cons: "When the caption came over the speaker it was very loud it started me every time should be toned down."

Pros: "We arrived to our destination safety."
Cons: "My seat was changed on me last minute without notifying me. I was moved away from my friends. It took a while to get this resolved with my seat. Once it was solved my chair was broken and could not recline. It took them 3 hours to get this fixed and were rude to me the entire time. I told them I had never been treated so poorly on a plane."
Cons: "Three hour delay getting out of little rock when I paid $75 extra to take an earlier flight that then departed later than my original flight."
Pros: "The HBO shows on the screens were good for binge watching. The pilot seemed skilled and we arrived safely."

Cons: "Very small cramped aircraft"
Pros: "Great to be home in time"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"

Pros: "Everything from ticketing to deplaning was smooth and professional."
Cons: "No problems at all."
Pros: "Bingeworthy titles and good entertainment. Friendly crew. Decent boarding and good baggage room for carry on."
Cons: "The economy plus seating is what we usually get as economy in other international carriers. No food and just tiny tasteless small snack for a 5+ hour flight. No pillows nor blankets. It can get rough with the small pitch on economy."
Cons: "Never made it and had to go yet to another desk because it was a united flight this was the worst i have ever experienced"
Pros: "We had a tail wind and the flight was super fast!"
Cons: "The were a lot of screaming babies around."
Pros: "Courteous crew. Smooth landing. My only compliant is that we have to purchase in-flight wi-fi. I find this unacceptable, especially because the airlines charges upwards of $80 for an Economy Plus seat and then one needs to $26.99 for wi-fi for the duration of the flight."

Pros: "Boarding was fast. Flight was ahead of schedule. Landed 20 minutes early. Staff was great."

Cons: "I selected my seats day I purchase. I didn't get the seats I had selected. I prechek in online. I ended up the very back in a single row against the toilet which made me throw up 3 times. I don't get sick on flights. But the smell was so bad!,"

Pros: "It was a packed flight, the captain was excellent!"
Cons: "The food item's for purchase were over priced!!!"
Pros: "Text and email alerts."
Cons: "Everything. We arrived 2 hours early and my daughter worked very hard to fit everything she needed into a carry on bag which was not easy. Her flight was delayed, delayed again, delayed again, and then cancelled. She was flying alone and should have received top priority and been one of the first called up to figure out how to get her to her destination. But that did not happen. She didn't know what to do at first then got in the long line of people and waited her turn. ONLY TO BE TOLD THAT HER ONLY OPTION WAS TO FLY OUT ON A LATER FLIGHT TO HOUSTON WHICH WOULD MAKE HER MISS HER CONNECTING FLIGHT ANT THEN STAY THE NIGHT ALONE IN HOUSTON AND WAIT THE ENTIRE NEXT DAY THERE UNTIL 9 THE NEXT NIGHT TO CATCH HER FINAL FLIGHT TO SALT LAKE CITY. I cannot even explain how angry and horrified I was that your airline thought that was acceptable for an unaccompanied minor! Clearly this one option that was offered to her by you was not accepted. Then she calls and a guy tells her he can get her there and is going to book her new flights.....only to get disconnected and never called her back. After that there was no one to be found at the desks for your airline. At this point I had driven back to the airport (spent hours driving and waiting) when a wonderful lady from a different airline helped my daughter out and got her on a different airline. However she had to check her bag due to her seating after all the hard work she put in to not checking her bag."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "We were deplaned due to mechanical issue. Had to take a didferent flight which put me in portland 9 hours later than planned. Only compensation received was a $10 meal voucher."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and united told us on the phone that all flights were cancelled for the day. I specifically asked on the phone to be moved to an American Airlines flight later that day, and was told that flight would be cancelled. Drove to the airport because I didn't understand how both the flights were cancelled with perfect weather in the departure and destination cities. The people at the airport moved us to the American flight that I was previously told was cancelled. Would have been much easier to do over the phone, but I was lied to on the phone."
Pros: "boarding was on time"
Cons: "plane was so small."
Pros: "The food was good and generous - full meal, ice cream, snack and sandwich for 8 hour flight. Very comfortable seats and many entertainment options."
Cons: "The premium seats were left vacant, but people moved to them mid flight after I was told I could only sit there if I paid a premium. Would recommend boarding from the back forward to speed up the process. Headphones were uncomfoetable."
Pros: "sufficient space for luggage overhead"
Cons: "too much chatter among crew, especially during boarding and disembarking rest rooms too small - claustrophobic additional, and roomier rest rooms could help wish announcements could be delivered more slowly, better enunciated, and less slurred; often cannot be understood; one often has to guess the meaning more smiles and friendlier tones and attitude could help having window seat can be very inconvenient when leaving one's seat"
