Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Bast trips!!"
Cons: "Evriting is good!!!"
Cons: "Enforcement of federal rules requiring children two and over too wear a mask. Flight attendant did not believe it was her responsibility to ask the age of the child sitting next to us, sneezing and coughing."
Pros: "The crew.was so rude, even from the check in process"
Cons: "Sick joke of an airline they treat you like cattle even in first class if you can even call it that. It’s more like premium economy and the staff is not friendly they act like they are put out when you ask for anything."
Cons: "There is nothing that this company can do to be better."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and accommodating for seats due to virus."
Cons: "Delays could've been prevented or let passengers know, instead of being on the plane for 2 hours without moving."
Pros: "Crew was very hospitable"
Cons: "Flight was a little late taking off, so punctuality could have been a little better"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Provide coffee at least"
Pros: "The crew serving the plane didn't look like they wanted to be there. Somewhat abrasive. The entertainment was poor and not very easy to access through your mobile, Iphone and Ipad. If you want to provide a better customer experience, equip all your planes with seats video screens. Passengers on a 4 to 5 hours flight don't want to have to figure out what do to watch a movie or TV. I don't fly American that often, but wanted to give it a try to see the difference between you and the other airlines. I have to say that on the return segment (ORD to SFO), I was not that impressed."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Slight delay in leaving"
Cons: "Baggage claim took 30-45 minutes after deplaning"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful"
Cons: "I have an injury so I paid extra for 'extra leg room" but there's a wall between economy and business class so very little legroom. My leg was hurting a lot and the flight attendants had to find me a different seat because I could not stay there for 5 hours. I wouldn't have paid extra for this seat."
Cons: "4 hour delay for no reason! I’m never flying with American Airlines again!"
Pros: "They had the AC on while we were waiting on the plane at the gate for 1.5hours"
Cons: "That the flight was delayed for 2 hours, information was inaccurate/missing, they knew we'd miss our connections but did nothing except, "they'll deal with it in San Francisco" and when we landed there was no one in sight to help us--no escorts/expedite to gates, no one to tell us where to get rebooked, and after going back and forth between terminals, waited in line an hour to get rebooked on a series of flights that would get me in 22hrs later after my original flight."
Cons: "Boarded onetime, maybe a little early, but still departed 25 minutes late for no apparent reason. This caused me to nearly miss my connecting flight. Got to the gate just as they were about finished boarding."
Pros: "The flight and cabin crews handled an equipment problem and consequent delay, and information about it, very well."
Cons: "salt free option for snacks; flight could have not been delayed but that’s not the flight crew’s fault. winds at sfo caused us to delay our takeoff"
Cons: "if the crew/flight wasn’t filled with racist tendencies that forced a black man and his partner to take a new flight because his “tone” wasn’t to their liking when he responded to accidentally being the wrong seat, costing us 90 minutes at least of delays because they deplaned us all when all."
Pros: "Everyone was nice and it went smoothly!"
Cons: "No in flight service"
Pros: "Everyone was so nice and I appreciated the chance to pre-board with my toddler! Thank you."
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."
Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Cons: "Felt very uncomfortable on that seat me and my girlfriend. We got delayed before taking off And our first flight from SF to Miami we got delayed an hour after landing before exiting the plane!"
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable. On time departure, early arrival. Gate crews not ready in SF"
Cons: "Entertainment options good, but require download of a proprietary app. Quit trying to sell us credit cards! Should get more than a pack of cookies for a 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Because they canceled my flight and i had to buy another ticket for 380$ and after that I realized my chair was available and i took a picture. It was really bad and i never choose again American Airlines."
Cons: "The airport crew in Fort Myers were rude, slow, difficult and more concerned with chitchat among themselves than helping passengers"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendants were very patient and efficient. Flight was very smooth and surprisingly not overcrowded. For the first time, in a long time, when getting off of the plane it was very organized and not everyone rushing and pushing to get off. Everyone followed suit and did row by row, and no one pushing or shoving which is always nice."
Cons: "The only this I would suggest is that on a longer flight you should offer better deals on food/snacks."
Pros: "Flight had very few people on it so everyone could stretch out for the 6 hour flight."
Cons: "The original flight turned around 45 minutes in and I missed my connecting flight. AA refused to try and get me on another flight the same day so I could make it to Sydney on the original day I was supposed to land. We waited 2/3 hours to board a whole new flight, and AA hardly compensated. If anything they should’ve provided a meal at least instead of a bag of pretzels. Flight crew seemed very inconvenienced and it showed."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No arm room when someone the size of an NFL player sits next to you and falls asleep with their arms relaxing into your space. Then they sleep open-mouthed with bad breath. I paid extra for that?"
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable, there was no entertainment options, there was no way to charge any electronic devices because the plane was so old, which meant I almost wasn't able to catch a ride home after the flight. For a cross-country flight, I would expect a better experience."
Cons: "No leg room"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "For a flight five hours or more I was disappointed that there was no complimentary food. It otherwise it was fine"
Pros: "blanket made it comfortable"
Cons: "No entertainment options"
Pros: "I really enjoyed the movies on this flight and they had us change to better seats before we took off"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable and flight was smooth."
Cons: "The shuttle to the plane wasn't bad, but would prefer not to have that element included."
Cons: "No room, limited entertainment, mediocre food. Was a very uncomfortable, long flight! Luggage late coming off plane, missed connecting flight and was not very helpful in getting rebooked."
Cons: "Again American Airlines was LATE. It was boarding time and no agent was at the gate. 10 minutes past boarding time the screen shows that the flight is delayed 25 minutes... but wait, there is still no plane at the gate! After 45 minutes the plane arrived, again had to be "cleaned" and prepared for flight back to SF. Customers were told the flight was delayed because Air Traffic Control issues in SF, but there was no plane in sight... Again I felt we were being lied to. The plane was filthy with garbage everywhere still. I will never fly American Airlines by choice!"
Cons: "That fact that on both ways they changed our flights which either we got to the destination late or we had to run across the airport so we don't miss our flights"
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Pros: "The flight was >1 hour late, which the pilot told us was due to the LAX controllers changing the landing patterns due to weather. So this really wasn't anyone's fault. But there was a large difference in comfort between this flight and the JAL flight from Tokyo. Seats were smaller, and my wife and I couldn't get seats together."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Pros: "The crew was able to seat my husband and I together at the last minute as my husband has mobility issures"
Cons: "The crew seemed like they could care less about the passengers. Choice of either one snack bag of pretzels or a biscotti ~ very minimal. No headphones were offered for the movies."
Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."
Cons: "As I mentioned in my last comment I was seated at the back of the plane on over four and a half hour flight by the time the food got to me they had ran out that I mention that I'm a diabetic with high blood pressure so I have to sit and suffer for over 3 hours will never ever fly American again"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and competent and obbiously embarrased by whoever in operations screwed this flight up good."
Cons: "Pleane departed two hours and thirty minutes after original schedule because of operational and equipment problems. Plane wasn't even in Philadelphia unti 6:00 pm. The guy at boarding (unlike the boarding in SFO) called way too many groupss individually, First Class, Diamond, Premium, Gold, Priority. This led to many people being refused boarding and told to wait. In SF they simply call first class and then all the rest or the Aadvantage members together before the land boarding. Much faster and more efficeint. Even though the flight was full there less than 12 people in the Diamond, Premium, whatever classes. And the guy taking the boarding passes was a jerk. He actuallly seemed to take pleasure in telling people they couldn't board. Might not ever fly AA again. At least never from Philadelfphia."
