Pros: "The crew was friendly and we arrived earlier than expected"
Cons: "Seats are too tight and too expensive to upgrade."

Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

Pros: "Short time and easy on and off boarding."
Cons: "One stewardess was in a mood but otherwise a very pleasant flight."

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"

Pros: "They tried."

Pros: "Landed Early at LAX"
Cons: "Having to go through 1 terminal to get bussed to another terminal & gate was at the opposite end. Having to ask the person next to me not to eat nuts Bc I was allergic. I disclosed this on my registration for my flight."

Pros: "On the first leg I liked the entertainment options. There were plenty of current content to watch and the screen was good enough. I still resorted to my iPad after a while but it was more because I wanted to watch something specifically rather than I had to. The food was decent but as usual the good stuff runs out before you get your turn. Order special food next time."
Cons: "I don’t like any airlines boarding process in general. They always seem inefficient and slow. I didn’t like the free headphones they passed out. They’re so awful that they really ruin whatever you’re trying to watch."

Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"

Pros: "Amenities, service, and punctuation of flight"

Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Attendant probably trying to be funny"

Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"

Pros: "The crew was amazing. They were attentive and very professional"
Cons: "I upgraded my seat and paid extra for one with more room. And I wasn’t impressed with my upgrade, doesn’t feel like more leg than regular seats. Comfort was below average. The crew"

Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."

Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."

Pros: "Delayed 40 minutes first flight out at 5am. Missed connecting flight by 2 minutes."
Cons: "No assistance in helping us get to our destination"

Pros: "Funny people at the gate, all was smooth and on time"
Cons: "It was too hot in the cabin, which is unusual (usually, I freeze)"

Cons: "Paid first class. Got served after people in coach."

Pros: "Delta is the best airline by far."
Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"

Pros: "Comfortable seating and roomy"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The new boarding pillars with Priority, Sky, Zone 1, Zone 2, etc was a mess. In concept it should be a good process, but it was just a sea of people asking each other which boarding group they were in. Going back to asking those who are in a particular boarding zone to form a line and doing so each zone at a time seems like a smoother process."

Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"

Pros: "Got to Richmond on time."
Cons: "Had the same problems with loading. Loaded from the front, not enough room for carry on, slow us down causing us to take off late. Made up for lost time though."

Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."

Pros: "Great crew."
Cons: "Very cramped seating on this plane."

Cons: "Read previous complaint"

Cons: "They need to stop selling the flights at full capacity"

Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"

Cons: "Delayed, no communication, delayed at boarding, sat at arrival with no gate."

Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."

Cons: "Old plane. No seatback entertainment available in plane."

Pros: "Because American Air had to change a light bulb on the plane in Lisbon, which took a couple of hours, we barely made our connecting fligh. We ran from customers TSA to the other end of Philly airport."
Cons: "Another airline."

Pros: "Tim was great!"

Pros: "Everything was just fine!"
Cons: "The only issue is that my entertainment screen kept in malfunctioning which was a bit tiring throughout the flight n"

Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Plane was about 1000 years old and I don’t think I’ve sat in a more uncomfortable seat."

Pros: "everything"
Cons: "snacks"

Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."

Cons: "Was very cold on fight,"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Anything"

Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"

Cons: "No tv, entertainment, charging"

Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"

Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"

Cons: "."

Cons: "charged a surprise of $175 for my third bag although Kayak mentioned i should be charged $75 at the time of booking. AA says it is due to Jordanyan Airlines, why was I surprised by this extra charge?!"

Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."

Cons: "My flight was 7:45AM from JFK to ANU I got into airport at 6:30AM But AA refused to me take on board. They said flight gate is closed."

Pros: "The professionalism from the entire crew. Very smooth flight. The in-flight meal was very good ."
Cons: "Even dow we were late departing Santiago Chile, we made it to Dallas in good time."

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

Cons: "Flight got canceled for over a week."

Pros: "I liked that the flight crew worked hard to get us to Tokyo as comfortably as they were able."
Cons: "I booked a flight on JAL, but had to fly on American. None of the JAL amenities or services were available. Also our flight was delayed by 4+ hours."

Pros: "We didn't go to Dallas!"
Cons: "We didn't like the London Airport and we didn't get enough to eat and drink. We flew from London to Seattle Airport (SEA). From there we had to take an Alaska Air Flight to Salt Lake City (SLC) We had a difficult time finding the terminal for our flight to (SLC). . Alaska Air Broke one of the wheels on my suit case."

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

Cons: "Lost connection because previous flight was too late , had long wait. The space in the seat on the plane were quite small and the plan looked old, or not updated. It didn't have individual screen monitor for entertainment , which I think nowadays is expected; especially for a coast to coast flight."

Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

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

Cons: "Poor crowd control in airport- monitor did not show gate even 20 minutes before the flight after the gate changed , then it changed 3 different times. Few Avianca staff available to answer questions/clear up the confusion. It was actually comical. On the previous flight Lima-> Cusco, they bumped us off our flight even with confirmed tickets, said the "flight was full" (obviously oversold) and said we'd get a $50 voucher and asked me to write my email on a piece of scrap paper, no receipt."

Cons: "The plane never cooled off for the entire flight"

Pros: "New planes, in seat entertainment"
Cons: "Very hot plane, never cooled down."

Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."

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

Pros: "Free drinks!!!"
Cons: "No leg room"

Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."

Cons: "Poor snack options"

Pros: "Boarding was a mess - there were no announcements about boarding and the gate agent did nothing to promote order in the gate area. Thank goodness for the new planes on this route - the old planes with the blue "leather" seats were so overdue to be retired. Onboard entertainment was great and every seat had a USB port and AC outlet. Smoothest landing ever, I couldn't even tell when the wheels hit the pavement! It was also the first time I recall a female captain on American - maybe the smooth landing wasn't such a coincidence :)"

Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"

Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"

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: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."

Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "Delay but it happens"

Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"

Pros: "I fainted on my flight and everyone was really nice and helpful to make sure I was okay."

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."

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being contacted even though reservation was cancelled the day it was made months ago. Caused unnecessary stress that I needed to call Airline to confirm cancellation."
