Airline reviews

Pros: "The seat was super comfortable, because of o lot of place for legs"
Cons: "The crew sometimes seems not to be happy with the passengers"

Pros: "Nice big plane, new technology"
Cons: "When landing in LAX we were unloaded far from anything and loaded into buses and taken to the terminal. It was like a weird sci-fi movie LOL."

Pros: "Good service. The crew was very attentive. The pilots were very good about relaying Typhoon related issues to the passengers; and doing their best to get us to our destination as close to on time as they could"

Cons: "Ticket was never issued."

Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Special note for Payton very attentive to my needs. Great personality. I will fly AA if all attendants are half as good and responsive as she was. She definitely deserves a raise."

Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly. I was super tired so I slept almost the whole way through. But they still left a bottled water and snacks for me. Very thoughtful."
Cons: "Everything was good, no complaints."

Pros: "I loved the movie options, It really made it a great experience."

Cons: "No food served on a 5+ hour flight...you had to pay extra for it and it didn't look like it was worth it. You also had to pay to choose your seat to be with other members of your group....this is all after paying for the flight itself! For the trip to Ireland from LA, for a group of 6, it was another $1000+! Just another way to get a few more bucks because they can! :("

Pros: "No blankets no entertainment"

Cons: "American Airlines had put my luggage on a flight earlier than me and is still NOT FOUND."

Pros: "On time departure, early arrival. Comfortable journey. Our pilot was a woman! Go girl power!"
Cons: "The WiFi did not work. You couldn’t download the American Airlines app. The crew forgot to give me my complimentary drink. After attempting for 10 minutes, Gave up."

Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"

Pros: "Organised, clean"
Cons: "Food... pizza... bad idea to serve during a flight. Moreover, the smell and the taste was bad"

Pros: "The flight was great--good food, good service, good entertainment, on time."
Cons: "They lost our luggage. Four people traveling together arrived in Phnom Penh, but our luggage didn't. It took almost 2 days to be reunited with our luggage."

Pros: "Good flight. Arrived early. Great crew. A321 is a nice aircraft. Good legroom."

Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"

Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"

Pros: "This JAL flight was actually operated by american airlines using an american airlines plane. This flight was not great compared to the JAL flight we took to Haneda which was actually a JAL plane which was roomier and had pretty good food."
Cons: "Food was extremely salty, overly sauced. The breakfast options were salmon or omelette and i got salmon. It was spongy and didn't look like salmon. It must have been mashed with something else and reformed into a roll form."

Pros: "We made up time in the air and landed early. Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "We landed early but had to wait a half hour to be able to get to an open gate. Then when arriving at the gate the jet bridge was unavailable so we waiting on the plan for an hour after touchdown. Then during my baggage claim pick up I found it open and spilling out into the bin and it was the first time I used this suitcase. Overall, I don't think it was the airlines fault but the airports fault at LAX, however all of these thing combined made it a less enjoyable flight/experience."

Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"

Cons: "Service was terrible. Uncomfortable and good was not at all tasty"

Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."

Pros: "I did like that the flight attendant checked my bag for me land was very forth coming on tips on how to save money with traveling. The fights we very smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that airport staff didn't alert when the plane was leaving (no announcement was made and staff gave wrong information, I ended up"

Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses to transfer from AA to PAL."

Pros: "Excellent, friendly attention from flight attendants."

Pros: "we had all the necessary conditions for work, rest, sleep and eating. The level of service has increased"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."

Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."

Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."

Cons: "We had purchased the tickets months before flying - It was Quantas, but we flew on American and Alaska- no one seemed to talk to each other - not one site had the complete itinerary. Took hours of phone calls and a lot of anxiety before we completed the trip. I used my American airline frequent flyer card and even though we flew over 14000 miles, we got credit for 500."

Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."

Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."

Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."

Pros: "Medical emergency response and support was excellent."
Cons: "No pre-boarding for infant. Straight legroom in 13D still had seat in front recline into my knees at 6'5". Extra legroom purchase did not provide any extra legroom. Need to know what seats provide extra legroom for 6'5" tall passengers."

Pros: "They were very professional and very welcoming. Made my eleven hour flight feel short with the entertainment the airline provide and the delicious meals that were provided. Definitely will be flying again with American Airlines for my next flight."
Cons: "Can't complain. Pleased."

Cons: "the flight did not have charging areas on the plane for phones for the regular seating. also, the seating was much tighter and our arm rest was not functioning. On all the planes going to our destination the accommodations were much different."

Pros: "That I finally arrived and got off the plane"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for three hours, we landed and sat in the plane for another hour to wait for a gate to open up. After apparently being hbaged three times. Terrible experience"

Pros: "Entertainment screens were easy to use and fun. Crew was extraordinarily nice and attentive."
Cons: "Boarded 2 hours late due to the flight crew reaching the maximum amount of hours they can fly by law. American should be more aware of their employees' hours. Seats need better head rests. Menu needs more vegetarian options and the prices need to be lower."

Pros: "Loved the people, very friendly and accommodating. I sat in first class and felt very comfortable."
Cons: "I think needing your own device for entertainment is awful then having to pay rental fees, even if you're in first class."

Pros: "Speed check in"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "The kiosk didn't work and sent us to check-in from which they couldn't figure out why the tickets wouldn't work. There was only one attendant at the ticket counter for the entire airline. And finally when the problem was finally resolved we nearly missed the flight; despite being there nearly 2 hours early."

Cons: "no leg room"

Pros: "I liked the seats I paid for on the flight."
Cons: "American Airlines flight attendants are horrible! Unhappy, disgruntled and it shows! They are not a good reflection of JAL!"

Cons: "Missing luggage is a common thing in British airway, which is not so common in other airways."

Pros: "The flight landed early. The Entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "When I got on, my seat mate spilled her coffee and almost got it on my clothes. The service felt rushed - the attendants seemed to want to clear the trays and sit in the galley chatting. They forgot to serve bread to the 2nd half of the First Class cabin and had to be reminded to do so. Definitely not their best day, so the experience could have been better."

Pros: "Great crew. Good, friendly service throughout. Even in coach the seats on this new A321 were pretty nice as far as the back of the plane goes. I'm 6'2" and had enough legroom. Inflight entertainment is decent. I watched the multi view flight map all the way -- now every seat is a window seat. M"
Cons: "Nothing. It was an excellent flight."

Cons: "Changed equipment and my aisle seat went to middle seat with no advance notice"

Pros: "The plane was nice and new and I really enjoyed the free entertainment option"
Cons: "I can't even come close to counting how many flights I've ever been on in my lifetime, but for me, this attendant was the absolute WORST I've ever come across. He was SO rude to so many passengers, I could hardly believe it. I've also maybe only ever taken the time to write less than a handful of reviews of flights, so I hope that leaving this comment says something. If I were American Airlines, I would NOT want this person representing my business. I took a photo of him on my phone with the original intention of reporting him directly to the airline. I have yet to find the time."

Pros: "I liked the at seat TV and the selection of movies"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that they ran out of most food choices."
