Pros: "everything but the cabin temperature. it was very hot and uncomfortable."
Cons: "Too warm in the cabin."

Pros: "Can’t say anything good"
Cons: "When boarding crew was rude because carry on did not fit the overhead compartment. No options to choose from for entertainment. Flight was delayed almost an hour while sitting in plane. Food options almost nonexistent"

Pros: "The Crew. Polite, helpful accommodating, SMILING!!!!"
Cons: "Note code share - came on American Airlines Delayed- no explanation- no"apology"- but really not necessary as most of the time - things happen. Food was mediocre. Entertainment system not working."

Pros: "It was a good flight"

Pros: "Roomy leg room"
Cons: "Plane to start,delay loading,dlaying taking off.almost hour late arriving."

Pros: "Smooth boarding. On time flight"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks:("

Pros: "Gates, delays, changes"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. No opportunity for priority boarding. Flight crew no help. Just another hum drum experience."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"

Pros: "I like the cookies. Any flight that safely lands is a good flight. I didn't have to hear the inflight "entertainment". There was room for my backpack, and I was in group 6 on a nearly full flight."
Cons: "I hate having media flashed in my face. The srewardesses misses me when serving beverages, which is hard to imagine, and rarely happens. We had a particularly bumpy landing. I've flown a fair amount, and I thought our bouncing and jostling was unusual, but then weather is unpredictable - still... I've seen navy pilots stick landings of small planes in worse weather."

Pros: "This flight is the normal nonstop from Mia to StL. The seating is tight but not completely uncomfortable."
Cons: "I just had knee replacement 4 1/2 months ago. It was difficult to fully extend my leg under the seat in front of me because the space between rows has shrunk to include more seating."

Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"

Pros: "I am not comfortable flying so for me, flying makes me nervous"

Pros: "Quick smooth flight"
Cons: "Everything went well with this flight."

Cons: "Getting to the airport early and waiting an additional ten minutes on the tarmac."

Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"

Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Terrible entertainment. A 1980s common screen. Horrible movies nobody wanted to watch and no choice was available given the common screen,"

Cons: ""Parked" on tarmac for 25 minutes waiting to leave LAX. Arrived half an hour late"

Pros: "Exit row seat very roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "Flight from ORD to LGA delayed even though the plane was already at the gate in ORD. No announcement explaining why it was delayed. What was worse was that after landing at LGA, baggage tagged as Priority did not come out first, it came out much later - after numerous non-priority baggage came out. This is not the first time this has happened at LGA. What's the point of tagging it as Priority if it won't be handled that way?"

Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"

Cons: "Space too tight. Nothing was offered to us, not even a cup of water. Staff not friendly, mean even."

Pros: "The food and entertainment were adequate, and the pilot did a good job of communicating the status of our delay."
Cons: "Takeoff was 2 hours delayed because we were waiting for the first officer. Surely this could have been anticipated and resolved earlier. The crew was inappropriately familiar with the passengers. We are not friends, and I prefer a bit of professional distance. The seats are designed for VERY tall people; my feet were swinging, as were those of everyone in my row. It was quite uncomfortable."

Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."

Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."

Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."

Pros: "The accommodations. Loved the high tech tv and choices on the entertainment, as well as the more advanced reading lights. LOVED LOVED LOVED the charging ports available."
Cons: "The headrests/seats weren't very comfortable."

Pros: "Great service by agents at gate and crew. Nice, new aircraft. Entertainment system was also very good."
Cons: "Had plenty of leg room in Exit Row, but seats were very narrow."

Pros: "We were greeted by an AA employee after our connecting flight arrived and escorted through the various security steps to the departure gate. The vegetarian meal was very good."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is grossly inadequate. The entertainment system has poor controls and had to be rebooted."

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"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
