Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I’m tall. And there is no room to put my legs or my arms."
Cons: "Nothing that AA could do better. Both fellow passengers had body odor that was so bothersome. I could not even sleep, not eat because of their smell. Oh well, laugh when we can, right?

The flight attendants were blatantly rude and would sit right in front of us and openly talk badly about the passengers. One of the flight attendants walked by and literally just grabbed my drink out of my hand and took it. There was only one flight attendant who was actually pleasant and polite to everyone and her name was Kate. The other flight attendants were just rude and abrasive to everyone and basically would mock people who did not speak English as their primary language. We were both treated okay but I was truly appalled with the way they spoke to some of the other passengers."

Finally got the seats from Rome to DFW changed and didn't have time for DFW to Denver changed. If your going to offer seat assignments up front for a fee, you need to stick to it.
