Great flight

Flight was delayed

It was quick, plane was loaded and the service on board was ok

Those corn kernel snacks were too hard for my dentures

Pros: "crew was great and moved me further up in the plane to make a tight connection"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and flight was smooth."
Cons: "It was amazing"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."
Cons: "Super crowded boarding area in DCA. Hurried to board, then sat at the gate for 15 minutes after door closed with no mention of being delayed or why we were sitting there. Finally found out the fueling paperwork was missing. This was after being forced to gate check bag in group 6 (and 7,8,9) Then luggage offload in Charlotte took forever, and then was on the wrong belt. Baggage staff in CLT were clueless."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy and the lights were dimmed as it was a red eye flight. Couldn't have asked for anything more."
Pros: "Was not long enough"
Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"
Cons: "We were delayed at the gate after getting on the plane. While the crew was communicative it would have been better if we were alerted before boarding"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours. They didn't tell us it was delayed until 2 hours before the flight, by which time we were already at the airport. They first delayed it 1 1/2 hours and then another 30 minutes every half hour. The airline/crew never even acknowledged the delay or apologized for it."
Cons: "Seating in Economy plus is tight. No electrical or UBS outlets for charging devices."
Pros: "Good crew, good service, good captain."
Cons: "If I did not have to check my carry-on to baggage claim. The flight was delayed and landed late (high winds)"
Cons: "There is always a plane waiting at the gate in Miami if one arrives early. Not really American’s fault. Miami International Airport is the one that needs to be more flexible."
Pros: "Crew tried very hard."
Cons: "Delays. Get on the bus. Get off the bus. Get back on the bus."
Pros: "Not a challenging process from beginning to end."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and expected to delay further and the attendants put me on another flight to get there before my connecting flight."
Cons: "My bags never made it and when I arrived, I was told that one of my bags was still at my departure airport and the other wasn’t scanned."
Pros: "Efforts to get us to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Got to Philly - no one there - rushed 2 concourses and plane still there with daughter on-board. They gave away our seats, told us we would not get on, would not get our baggage and would not get put up in a hotel. Because of the NBA draft - had to travel 60 miles to New Jersey for a hotel. Lost a day, lost 2 tours, endured additional hotel costs...and the attendant made it clear she was on overtime and we just needed to move on. American Airlines is too big and consolidation of airlines has not been good for the public."
Pros: "Pleasant service ; courteous team"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "DCA based AA gate agents were awesome. We were booked on a flight that was delayed, turned out there was a flight about to depart (it had been delayed 2.5hrs due to weather), but was departing prior to our reg scheduled flight so they put us on standby. No doubt the crew was also columbus based and eager to get home...as they did. Couldn’t be more pleased to get home"
Cons: "the usual garbage AA flights on CRJ's with poor on-time performance and frequent maintenance issues..."
Cons: "X"
Pros: "The gate agents took great initiative to line up new fights for possible missed connections."
Cons: "Didn't appreciate an hour delay because a crew member decided not to go to work today and there seems to be no planned contingency staff at the airport for early morning fights. Made me late to PHX, and I had to run across most of the airport to make my connection."
Pros: "We were 40 minutes delayed but received good communication and had an uneventful flight otherwise."
Pros: "The wait time for the connection was not too long. But on the way back to the US, I almost missed my flight from Miami to Washington-DC because I didint have enough time to go though imigration and also had to wait for my luggages. Thank you!"
Pros: "Easy to check in before trip, curb side check in is amazing, staff was super helpful. Flight attendants were so nice. Overall great flying experience"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "There was NO ROOM for my legs when the man in front of me reclined his seat. I could not work on my laptop because it was such a ridiculously tight fit. I am 5'9" tall, and i have never been so cramped on an airplane."
Pros: "On time, good service."
Pros: "Big comfortable plane."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food at all."
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Pros: "I think for the most part you have some of the best customer service but your snacks are awful compared to other airlines."
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "We did eventually reach our destination safe and sound"
Cons: "In flight service on AA was very disappointing. This was a cross-country flight of 5 hours at the dinner hour. The plane was full [ as usual these days ] seat space was tight [ as usual these days ], but cabin service was practically invisible. The two stewards made one pass with the beverage cart, and that was it for the duration!! On a five hour flight!! When I went back for a beverage, the stewards were chatting at the rear compartment. This was the poorest American Airlines service that I have experienced in fifty years. I will avoid them in the future. Don"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Lost connection"
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Pros: "Boarding and debar king was quick."
Cons: "Attendant was surly, no coffee, no continental breakfast as indicated on the reservation. Very disappointed with in-flight service."
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "Gate agent at DFW helped with a seat change so my wife and I could sit together--excellent seating in the exit row"
Pros: "The plane has improved greatly with their comfort and leg space"
Cons: "With checking my luggage my bag fee was waived a total of seven times this trip because I'm a military wife to see my husband overseas who is serving a year in Saudi Arabi except this past time on October 2nd at DCA airport. Spoke with the Supervisor Ralph who stated it was against policy. How stringent is this policy if it was waived seven times previously? Policy needs to be reviewed with entire staff. I will no longer use American Airlines because their military convenience and policies no longer seem to favor the military. My husband also after speaking with him will also no longer use your airline including all his members he overseas when they return after their year tour."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Cons: "I thought I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight. I booked on Alaska Airlines website. I picked seats. I missed the part in the email I received later saying I didn't have seats. I never received a check in notification email. It took forever to check in at the airport because the the kiosk took a while to pull up my reservation after asking for additional information. I got stuck with middle seats on 5 hour plus flights when I had actually checked to confirm I could still select a window seat before I booked and did indeed select window seats when I booked."
Pros: "Was about an average flight for domestic travel."
Cons: "Leg room on flight wasn't the greatest and seat recline also slides the bottom of the seat forward."
Cons: "The flight attendant chastised my husband loudly when doing a pre check before take off. She reached over and yanked his charger our of the socket and stood over him and reprimanded him for not being on airplane mode. The passengers in front were turning around while the passengers behind were laughing. It was excessive and inappropriate. The passengers behind him had tray tables down and video games out and when she addressed them it was in a respectful manner, but when addressing my husband, it was disrespectful and unprofessional. Seemed to be discrimination as she did not treat any other passengers like this. I wish I would have captured this on video to share with American Airlines as I do not think they would condone her behavior. Her name was Marlene and she needs additional training regarding customer service."
