Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Water, sanitizer"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "American has been overbooking flights, doesn't respect social distancing, not true that the middle seat is empty, the person next to me coughed frequently, and since it was a FULL flight, I couldn't get another seat!, never again American"
Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Opportunity to buy food on a 3.5 hour flight. Pretzels just doesn’t cut it on a ‘dinner time’ flight."
Cons: "Original flight came in 1.5 hrs late. Missed connection, then sat on the tarmac for 2 hrs before taking off because the pilot was late."
Pros: "The plane was nice. The captain was friendly and informative, and the flight was great."
Cons: "The food was pretty mediocre with a small soggy sandwich that I didn't bother to eat. They force you to watch a very long and extremely boring trailer for Disney. You can't turn it off and have to sit through one bugman movie trailer after another."
Pros: "Good range of entertainment, comfortable seats."
Cons: "Some dinner choices had become unavailable by the time I ordered."
Cons: "The chairs can be more comfortable."
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating, even on short flight"
Cons: "Good - no complaints."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "At this stage, you cannot use such an old plane for an overseas 8 hour flight. The plane was so old it even had the cigarrete disposers on the arm rest and it didn't have TVs not power outlets."
Cons: "Same is last."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "Flight was very oversold. I purchased an aisle seat and had to give it up to a family that needed to be together. Would be nice if the airlines didn't charge more to pick a seat so situations like this could be avoided."
Pros: "The in flight experience and entrrntainment was great."
Cons: "The preboarding process by American Airlines was really bad. My passport was looked at 6 times before I boarded. This is after going though passport control by Spain officials at the airport. AA has people waving you down the aisle looking at your passport and sending you to then Verify my boarding pass and that I had documents ok to travel, they told me I did and still sent me over to a security person who asked more questions than the immigration officials in the US, he then sent me to the counter to get my passport scanned ( not sure what that meant), after waiting 10 minutes of waiting the counter clerk asked me what I needed and I told her I was sent there, it was evident there was no reason for me to be there and she printed my boarding pass, which I didn’t need since I had a mobile pass. Then when boarding the aee two people asking a bunch of questions about people having control of their items and looking at your documents which the person who scans to board does again...really very inefficient and slow, it sure it is really helping with safety. Could be done smoother, faster and a lot less people."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "At the end of three flights to obviously be understaffed and to have luggage take an hour and fifteen minutes is disrespectful and shows how AA is callous about it’s passengers needs."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Pros: "Smooth flight, takeoff, and landing. Efficient boarding and unloading plane. Excellent timing of departure and arrival. Crew was efficient."
Cons: "No leg room. No food. No entertainment. Long taxi time to gate after landing at DFW. Crew all business not that friendly."
Cons: "Flight left early on top of us arriving in Philadelphia late. Hadw the staff been more helpful we would've made the connecting flight. This occurred to multiple people on our flight from Rome."
Pros: "Getting home EVENTUALLY"
Cons: "10 minutes after leaving Austin the pilot tellsnus Houston air traffic control is grounding all westbound flights due to a storm in Dallas that's causing too much congestion. So we sa on the Tarmac for 90 minutes. I have a difficult time believing this situation was a surprise. Possibly it was just to free up the gate and not have to go through reboarding. Also leg room is getting reduced to 28 inches. I'm 5"11 and cramped. How is JetBlue better than American? How much will these airlines continue to bend us over. I didn't even take the screaming infant into account.... since it's not AA's fault for letting that baby on board."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Thank you. I get to see my family."
Cons: "We had buy food or snacks on the 4 hour flight. Very cheap airline."
Cons: "It was terrible. definitly not up to the standards of a first class fare."
Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "CRJ900 is a small plane. no WiFi"
Pros: "Boarding on time and arrived to my destination on time."
Cons: "no comment"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "I bought the tickets together, but was informed at the ticket counter that i had only purchased tickets—not boarding passes. Boarding passes needed to be purchased by paying extra if my husband and I wanted to sit next to each other. I tried calling the customer service line through kayak and waited on hold for a long time with no indication of wait time. When the gate agent arrived, we asked and were moved to seats next to each other right away. The ticket agent at initial check in was very abrasive and non-solution oriented. if what she was saying was true— that we only paid for tickets and had to pay extra for boarding passes together— that was never made clear during the booking process. It’s unlikely I’ll use kayak again unless I know for sure what I’m buying."
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Pros: "That we arrived safely and that the flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats again with no head rest. I have not had this on any flight of any length for a very long time. Most seats have the adjustable head rest. WHO EVER HEARD OF HAVING TO PAY ADDITIONAL FOR SEATS. AND I PAID TWO TIMES AS I CHANGED MY FLIGHT TO AN EXIT ROW SO PAID DOUBLE...TWO TIMES WHICH IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY."
Pros: "Food was good and service and crew were excellent"
Pros: "Left on time"
Cons: "Some glitch said the flight was delayed, when it wasn't. Good thing I checked with the Check In Counter."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Comfortable seating, congenial crew. Provided wheelchair service as requested with no glitches"
Cons: "Food was subpar for class of service"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Crew let people move to main cabin extra without paying like I did"
Pros: "The crew was professional"
Pros: "The row I was in was spacious, I'm glad that I paid extra to move closer to front of plane and then paid extra to get an earlier boarding. I would recommend seat 13C for these types of flights. Legroom was good and I was comfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment program was a bit glitchy towards the end of my flight, but I slept inside. Maybe check all screens and such because it wasn't really registering when I would push the buttons."
Pros: "The smooth flight"
Cons: "The smell in the plane"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to change my seat to sit with my husband because there were empty seats."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that children sitting behind us weren't told to stop kicking the chair. They also spoke loudly when it was quiet and thus woke me up from my sleep. We were delayed leaving due to unforeseen circumstances, but our arrival time was only 15 minutes later. There was a lot of turbulence during this flight."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating attendants"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" and the seats were extremely uncomfortable for a 10 hour flight. No vegan options"
Pros: "Liked that one of the flights ha a usb connection to charge my phone"
Cons: "It was slightly more cramped in the seating and it was very warm for the duration of the flight"
Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights. Entertainment good but touchscreen was not responsive and frustrating to operate. Long walk to new terminal for connecting flight even though flight was listed as the same flight number for both legs."
Pros: "Starting with seat selection with an agent, every step of the trip was handled with efficiency and professionalism. The cabin crew saw to my needs and was watchful of each passenger. Communication was provided as needed, food, drink, snacks as well as comfort dispensed smoothly."
Cons: "The delay with our flight leaving Rome was tied to a delay at JFK the evening before, so although there was nothing to be done at the Rome end, it was inconvenient. Also, because we needed to make a connection in New York, this set the stage for delays on the last leg of our journey"
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Cons: "Taking 2 shuttle buses to transfer from AA to PAL."
Pros: "The food was pretty good."
Cons: "Old 777-200. not very comfortable and the entertainment is very sub-par"
Pros: "Quick boarding and on time departure"
Pros: "we arrived safely"
Cons: "had to take a shuttle to depart from a remote terminal. Had to climb up a long ramp. Seats were very close to each other (no knee room). No food. not enough overhead space for luggage. Very tight and uncomfortable seating."
Cons: "Luggage was placed on a later flight and no reason given for action. Had to go back to pick it up two hours later which made drive to columbia grueling long and very late."
Pros: "Not a full flight able to stretch out and crew friendly"
Cons: "The plane was dirty, crumbs and stains on seats. Unfortunately no individual entertainment screens with limited offerings overhead makes for a long transatlantic flight but would fly again for the price."
Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."
