Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Pros: "It was nice that plane wasn't full so I had an empty seat next to me. Crew was nice."
Cons: "AA trying to sell seat "upgrades" during online checking."
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Pros: "Good connection"
Pros: "The crew was professional"
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Pros: "The person at the luggage area, she gave me the ticket, very nice and polite the only professional person."
Cons: "Didn't let me take my hand luggage, small that complies with the size and told me only at gate, I said I had things that could brake and showed no concern and they would send it to my final distinction instead giving it to me in the end of first flight...I've been traveling around the world and the disrespect for customers and poor service of most of US carrier is amazing... some African companies are much better. on the second flight, almost two hours delay, the plane from philly to Lisbon, old, just s few tv screens, exactly like the North Korean airways..., bad food, my tray stayed with me the whole fly, flight attendant not very professional with no concern for customers and job."
Pros: "The crew was very kind and we had a safe trip in general"
Cons: "2 hours of delay to take the airplane in Orlando and they changed the flight to Charlotte when it was planned it would go to Philadelphia but it was not a big deal to me."
Pros: "Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected."
Cons: "AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch or raise legs. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
Pros: "Entertainment and meals"
Cons: "Crew could of been friendlier"
Pros: "an extraordinarily long and stressful journey that sgould have taken 15 hours but took 27.. I may stop using American Airlines"
Pros: "On time departure"
Cons: "Why do not they serve FREE water????"
Pros: "it was ok"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat but had to sit in different spot. Set in isle seat"
Cons: "You overbooked the flight"
Pros: "Pilot did good job in tricky conditions at landing."
Cons: "Wish food were served."
Cons: "No priority boarding for people with babies and toddlers"
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Pros: "The options for entertainment were great."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. I received errors when trying to access gogoinflight on my tablet, even when I had the most updated app. Therefore I was unable to use the app during my flight to Philadelphia. Also, when checking in from our original departure location, MCO, we were not provided our boarding pass or luggage tags for our final destination, Barcelona, only to our connecting flight, Philadelphia. The connecting flight was delayed in MCO for an 1 hour and a half, after we have boarded the plane. So we waited in the plane for the whole hour and half while a maintenance issue was being resolved. The delay almost cost us to be late for our final flight to Barcelona. Since we were not given our boarding passes for PHL to BCL it caused confusion when trying to board our plane in PHL to Barcelona, and also caused for our baggage to not arrive with the flight. After landing, we spent an additional 2 hours at the Airport going through customs, and waiting on line for the lost and found desk for baggage in Barcelona. The lost and found desk had three agents available to assist, however we can only talk to one which was designated specifically for American Airlines. This caused a very long wait time of 1 hour. We were advised the bags stayed in Phildelaphia since they did not have the additional luggage tags, and will not arrive till the next day. Overall the experience within the Airport kiosks, service desks, and baggage check in' s was not a pleasant experience. I believe many of these issues could have been avoided if the American Airlines agents were more knowledgeable and attentive."
Pros: "Crew and promptness. Roomie seat."
Cons: "No cellphone charger. No movie screen at the seat."
Cons: "It's AA, never again"
Pros: "Left on time from LAX"
Cons: "We booked for British Airways since we have good experience with them before but this is "operated by American Airlines" - not sure why they just don't say American Airlines when booking. It's deceiving!!!"
Pros: "GSP easy to navigate- easy option for WNC travelers"
Cons: "I paid for a non-stop from Seattle to Philadelphia. they cancelled it and only had options that dragged out the trip, caused an extra day of lost work. There was no attempt or offer to ameliorate the inconvenience, or refund the cost -- even an upgrade would have been appreciated. just here's what we have, take it or leave it. I am through with American"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. Disaster"
Cons: "My flight was pushed back and I was never notified and I had to reschedule my flight completely from Vegas to Frankfurt"
Cons: "Flight was changed. Didn't get the seats I had already picked out. Woman on flight was very rude to me when I asked where the restroom was. NOT a good experience over all."
Cons: "Baggage was lost!!!!!"
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Pros: "The entertainment was free on our flight and that was very nice. Watch a lot of movies iv been wanting to watch. Pilots flew the plane very well."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Pros: "Boarding was good, Good flight , good service , plane was small for the distance with limited space for movement ,"
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time departure"
Pros: "Staff was pretty good, and while the food wasn't incredible, it wasn't bad."
Cons: "I hold the personal opinion that the headrests on transatlantic seats should be the sort that prevent one's head from falling to the side. It seemed like this was a domestic plane assigned to an international route."
Pros: "great service from flight attendance"
Pros: "Entertainment options were outstanding , 4 movies and 10 hour flight is quicker than quick."
Cons: "Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Cons: "I booked the flight specifically because it was advertised and booked on British Airways, which is considered a nice international airline to fly. The flight was swaped to American Airlines, and I was put on an international flight that was archaic, I would have been better off flying a prop plane from the 1970's."
Cons: "I had booked an international flight with British Airways and it ended up being American Airlines. There was no notification of this change and I was not happy. I found AA to be subpar. The plane itself didn't have individual screens and my view was obstructed by other seats. The food was terrible and I got sick later, possibly from the bad airline food. Overall I got to my destination on time, but unhappy as I had chosen an airline and was forced to use another."
Pros: "Our extra leg room seating was fantastic. The crew was delightful."
Cons: "The entertainment was just okay."
Pros: "We were very happy with the crew. They were very helpful and attentive throughout. One of the flight crew members even found me at customs to return a toy we had inadvertently left that belonged to my 13 month old. She certainly did not have to do that, so we are very thankful. Unfortunately, I did not catch her name."
Cons: "Unlike other airlines we have traveled that give priority to people traveling with children, American Airlines does not. That would be something that would be helpful for traveling parents. Allowing people with children to board first and get off the plane first would make things better for all passengers. Planes are also outdated. We have been traveling with other airlines that have individual screens. Much easier for people to travel on long flights when they have individual entertainment."
Cons: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Second time I fly to Springfield and it's delayed at least a didn't have to sleep in the airport like the first time"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to maintenance issues. I got home at 1 am instead of 10 pm."
Pros: "generally on time"
Pros: "Nothing but delays, cancellations, and rude people"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "The crew was just downright rude. Condescending rude and full of tude. Also they are all 100 years old and one lady was so fat she could barely fit in the aisle. Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."
Pros: "The entire crew pre-boarding and in flight were extremely friendly and nice and seemed to have a good raport with each other. The last time I flew, I took Frontier from LGA to Denver and the staff on Frontier's flight were very rude and dismissive towards passengers. It was so refreshing to fly American Airlines and be greeted with warmth and professionalism by the staff!"
Cons: "The only downside to the flight was the lack of music/tv."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Pros: "The flight minus was very fast, 26 minutes"
