Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was great & flight was quiet."
Pros: "Flight time, availability on short notice"
Cons: "Delayed, no communication, delayed at boarding, sat at arrival with no gate."
Pros: "The crew members were extremely helpful. It was a full flight and hard to find space for all the carry-on luggage, but an extremely helpful stewardess did a great job of finding space for my bag. She was attentive and friendly for the beverage service and really made me feel welcome."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Be on time 2.3/4 hour delayed no weather issues or mechanical"
Cons: "Play primetime tonight cancel playing in late overnight real pain in the butt"
Cons: "I never got to go on my trip... wasted all my money and never got anywhere and can't seem to get a refund or at least another ticket."
Cons: "If we had access to the WiFi to watch shows earlier like United does, that would be nice."
Pros: "Great food"
Cons: "Need a polite crew"
Cons: "There isn't enough leg room for those of us who are tall. I'm 6'3 and my knees always strike the seat in front of me."
Pros: "I didn’t like anything. I was stressed the whole time because my flight was late in Abilene and was going to cause me to miss my flight in Dallas to Portland possibly and I had to run through Dallas to make it on time."
Pros: "food, drinks, seats, price"
Pros: "on time, even a little early"
Pros: "Arrived and left on time, something that really counts!"
Cons: "I checked in in Miami airport 12 hs before leaving. I was told by the fake friendly attendsnt that our seats , my husband’s snd mine, were separated. When asked to see if wevcould bd placed together she sarcastically commented that we had bought our flight through expedia and if we had dome it directky with AA we might have been together. Shame on her comment! AA offers their flights to many companies snd I now wonder if her comment is true, which makes me consider next time I choose an airline. In Buenos Aires when We checked in something similar happened and we could not book our seats the day before bcause they were all taken . The answer was if we wanted a better seat we’d have to pay because only back seats are available in economy and AA waits forbthose whi pay first and only then they”ll give us a seat. I”ve travelled several times with AA and feel the service is not worth the money I pay for it. The food on our flight back to BA was not good st all. However , I have to point out that all my flights BA to N Y, N Y to Mia and Mia BA left on time. On the whole it was good but I believe AA cares onñy about money and I feel disappointed"
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: "Finishing my flight, being able to say I'll never fly American again."
Cons: "Without notice or warning, I was required to pay $200 for my dog, tranferring from Alaska Air, to ride in cargo for the 2nd leg of my trip. My fare was approx. $84. They would not accept cash, but made me spend another $5 on a "gift card," because I don't own credit cards. Rude, uncaring, marginally competent ground crew."
Pros: "New economy extra for those of us with elite FF status was awesome and made a long flight comfortable"
Cons: "The entertainment system on these planes need to be updated. It's really unacceptable today to have everyone forced to watch the same movie in the ceiling, forgot about pausing for toilet breaks. This one they showed one movie and then we were forced to endure snippets and NBC shows that I can't imagine anyone watching. What happened to the second movie? They supposedly had entertainment that you could watch on your phone or tablet, but it was only tv shows as well?!"
Pros: "AA got me home safe."
Cons: "Entertainment was nonexistant. Most movies were unavailable and those that were would start and then say “no longer available” monitor did not work. I was not the only passenger with issues. Many could not get system to work. Antiquated and/or poorly maintained. Also, announcement made it seem as if you had to pay for wine/beer/spirits. I wasn’t drinking so it didnt matter but at other times this would have been a hassle. Never had this on an international flight. Flight was okay just not top drawer like it used to be. Cost cutting measures have impacted the brand. Would not say it is first tier. Dont mind a “no frills” flight if it results in lower cost to consumer (aka Southwest Airlines)"
Cons: "Boarding is always awkward on any airline. If you boarded back to front and deplaned front to back, time and aggravation would be reduced."
Pros: "Roomy leg room"
Cons: "Plane to start,delay loading,dlaying taking off.almost hour late arriving."
Pros: "Crew was nice and gave my son Captain Wings"
Cons: "Left 50 minutes late, only provided sugar cookies as food"
Pros: "All prompt boarding smooth flight early arrival"
Pros: "Flight attendants were wonderful and very accommodating. They were pleasant, nice to talk to, and attentive to all passengers. Special assist personal were polite, pleasant and extremely helpful."
Cons: "I did not understand if I booked with British Airways why my return flight was through American Airlines. I requested special accommodations with extra leg room as a result of recent knee surgery. My seat location was in row 34, the back of the cabin. Not as pleasant. Too far to walk leg room uncomfortable at times during the 8 hour flight."
Pros: "I was truly surprised by how smooth the entire experience was on this flight. The crew was excellent and the flight was on time!"
Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Pros: "The food seemed better this flight. Service was laid back and friendly."
Cons: "The flight's departure was pushed by 45 minutes but we didn't board until an hour after the initial scheduled time and then stayed on the plane for another hour and a half. The flight left almost three hours after it was scheduled to depart. I've only experienced such flight delays with AA."
Pros: "We had a really nice, friendly and fun male flight attendant."
Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Flight crew was kind and curtious."
Pros: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Cons: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Cons: "AA delayed flight 3 hours, overbooked, took 1 hour to board the plane with all passengers, another 45 minutes to prepare a gate at the destination airport and another 45 minutes to unload checked bags. Hesitant to fly with AA again."
Pros: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Pros: "Take off was on time, and landed early."
Cons: "The woman boarding us asked me to combine my small items into one - and that was not the issue, it was her demeaning tone, and that there were several other passengers she had already let on with more than two consolidated items. Seats were very tight"
Cons: "Flight was late. AA charged me for an exit row seat, but assigned me a non-emergency exit row window seat. Wi-if did not work."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Kept asking passengers pretty boarding to check luggage due to limited space...yet after we boarded there was at least 1 completely empty overhead compartment."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are not roomy, but that's par for the course."
Pros: "The seats were more comfortable. You"
Cons: "The middle seat and the guy in front of me who decided to recline!!!"
Pros: "The flight was on"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"
Cons: "Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front"
Cons: "having people trying to shove baggage in overhead storage, this is ridiculous, shifting baggage from one bin to another just to make it fit, why not just store it all below. this would be a great idea, free baggage like it used to be."
Pros: "I fainted on my flight and everyone was really nice and helpful to make sure I was okay."
Pros: "Easier to board. Smaller plane so not as many people to climb over"
Cons: "Planes overall every airline are too tight but AA seemed better than others I've been on actually"
Pros: "JoMarie was very helpful at LGB. And we eventually arrived at our destination."
Cons: "This was a horrible travel experience, the worst I have ever known. My uncle had died, so I had to search for the soonest and most economical flight in order to attend the funeral. Traveling with me was my aunt (his ex wife) and my cousin (his only daughter). Our initial flight was delayed 'due to mechanical issues' and they said we weren't going to make our connection in Phoenix. So they had to reroute the whole trip, which took about half an hour because all of the flights were full. So instead of flying from LGB - PHX - CLT - CAE and arriving Saturday night, we ended up departing from LAX (which we specifically were trying to avoid) almost 9 hours later. From there to DEN - CLT - GSP arriving Sunday morning. Because of this I had to contact the hotel and let them know that we weren't going to check-in until the next day, but I still ended up having to pay for Saturday night. Then, I had to cancel the rental car and make a new reservation to pick it up at GSP and return at CAE since the hotel was close to CAE, plus the return flight was through CAE. Also, wifi was an additional cost (which we didn't use because of this), the snacks were pitiful, and the seats were very narrow and uncomfortable. I have flown with JetBlue in the past, but on this occasion, last minute flights to South Carolina were prohibitively expensive. That being said, if I had known how bad the experience with American was going to be, I would have gladly paid literally double the price for the JetBlue tickets. And in the future, I will be flying exclusively with JetBlue no matter what the cost."
Cons: "flight has been cancelled, airline staff gave me hotel vouchers which the hotel would NOT honor, I went back and forth twice because those two hotels would not accomodate american airline passenger vouchers, I end up calling a friend to pick up at the airport she has to drive for an hour just to pick me up, I regret buying a ticket in american airline"
Cons: "You couldn't hear anything as people boarded."
