Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Good trip"

Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."

Pros: "Crew super attentive and pleasant, movie options good, liked plug/outlet,"
Cons: "Seating could’ve been a little better, just not super comfortable for such a long flight"

Cons: "The flight sat on the ground well over an hour after landing. No gate was available. Many missed their connections. Miserable."

Pros: "Crew was spectacular"
Cons: "If it had been on time"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Play primetime tonight cancel playing in late overnight real pain in the butt"

Pros: "On time,"
Cons: "WiFi didn't work."

Cons: "The crew could have been more polite."

Pros: "It was changed from British Air to American Air, which would have been my last choice to fly with. Bad choice!!!!!"
Cons: "No American Airlines! I have trouble with them every time I have used them. Usually their plane breaks down or requires maintenance, which happened again this trip. It made use have to run from customs to the other end of the airport in 10 minutes to make the connection ."

Pros: "On time despite ground hold"
Cons: "Having flight attendants board with 4 bags and taking most storage"

Pros: "The flight crew was terrific, and the pilot provided good information on the cause of the delay, and expected deoarture and arrival."
Cons: "We were 80 minutes late leaving Portland. Fortunately I did not have a connecting flight and the late arrival was a nuisance and not a problem."

Cons: "Didn’t like how old the plane was. Didn’t have any entertainment, and food was bad. Seats were not very comfortable and not much leg room."

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."

Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Upon arriving to the gate we were delayed 15 min. As the last few people were boarding the gate agents announced there was not more overhead space and we would have to check all bags from now on. I’ve seen this done before but I was very irritated because it seemed as if the gate agents were a little rough with the newly checked bags. As I felt like I didn’t have a choice I checked my bag reluctantly knowing I had a gift for a friend inside and continued boarding. As I boarded I was highly irritated to see more than 5 available overhead spaces for carry ons. I asked the steward why they made us check bags when there was still space and she barely stopped to answer and just said they have a monitor up front that tells them when it’s full. Clearly the monitor was wrong and common sense would lead me to at least take a look before LYING to paying customers. I was very hurt to see the gift I had just bought for my friend was broken when I opened my bag at baggage claim."

Pros: "The gate attendant was especially helpful in advising me how to pack my bag under the seat without having to check it. The flight was on time too"
Cons: "The Emotional Support Animal was flatulant the entire trip. I was gagging the entire trip from the smell"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Big hassle trying to get on an earlierflight ehich originally booked."

Pros: "The people I spoke to on the customer service line and then especially at the service desk in Miami were able to help me get a sooner flight so I didn’t have to be driving home until the wee morning. I am VERY grateful to them and American Airlines policies which empower its employees to assist its customers."
Cons: "There seemed to be some passive aggressiveness present on the flight to Houston. Passengers seemed to be defying in small ways orders from the staff, standing etc. The staff responded quite severely in my opinion, repeating the safety video to everyone’s annoyance because some passengers were talking out loud."

Pros: "Free Wi-Fi"
Cons: "The crews aren’t very kind. Average service."

Pros: "Everything happy and in time. Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Terrible lead flight attendant"

Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "pleasant crew"
Cons: "CRJ900 is a small plane. no WiFi"

Pros: "Very hard landing."
Cons: "Your pretzels are terrible"

Cons: "The food options on the brochure were not available, flight attendants had bad attitude and negative vibe"

Pros: "The flight crew did a good job."
Cons: "Throughout the boarding process, my spouse and I had a seat and pre-check, until we got to the airport and we were told they don't know why, but our pre-check was "dropped" so we needed to be rechecked in. What wasn't told to us was we would lose our seats and be put on the bottom of a waiting list. We were able to board bc other passengers did not show up, however we no longer had our seat preference, so I had a middle seat, although I'm a service member with a left knee issue so my seat needs to be an isle one. Also, there were no food choices that did not account for my allergy."

Pros: "On time departure and arrival - friendly crew"
Cons: "No own movie screen."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "The entire flight. Bumbing, disabled seating was not provided as promised, neither was off boarding to baggage area."

Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Cramped beyond belief. Can’t roll carry on bags through aisles. Seems they’re more narrow. Boarding seems something beyond common sense. On domestic flights I only fly Southwest unless a must do trip and they don’t fly there. Our trip over to Milan on British Airways was wonderful. Sorry the last leg was American Airlines.)"

Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"

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: "i slept though not too comfortably."
Cons: "I literally wasn't given a glass of water or any food. I fell asleep for a bit but wasn't woken to be asked if I needed anything when they came around with the carts. It was a 5 hr flight."

Cons: "Their customer service was no help and didn't know why. So o scrambled to buy a last minute ticket home from the Netherlands."

Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."

Pros: "Friendly staff. In-flight entertainment included."

Cons: "Almost did not make it on the dieses flight because totally crowded at security check point."

Pros: "Very pleasant employees at the Hattiesburg/Laurel airport. We were thanked for our patience even though it wasn't directly their fault for the call-out."
Cons: "They kept delaying the flight in Hattiesburg because of someone who called out earlier in the day. My family had to take off of work early to take me to the airport and it was difficult to know how late they could work due to the flight delays."

Pros: "The A321-S was a pretty good aircraft. Nicely updated interior. Staff were young & professional. Everyone was happy, efficient and professional. It was nice to see the Captain smile and say goodbye to ALL the passengers. Well done AA!"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"

Pros: "Everything was crew, drinks and the flight was great!"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and served multiple snacks through the flight."
Cons: "The plane was not only too small for a 7 hour international flight but the sound didn't work for the only video screen in the cabin. Perhaps bigger planes can't fly from Shannon but it would make me think twice about either flying American or through Shannon again."

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: "Crew was very helpful"
Cons: "Seating onsite didn't facilitate the experience. Traveling with a minor, it is important to seat with family members how can help throughout the flight. First come first serve seats approach not a good strategy as a customer approach. Charging extra for regular seats to choose online...not a good approach. Not having vegetarian options a big mistake. What do we eat?"

Pros: "Food and movies"

Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so we missed our connection. The entertainment system was down during the flight and all they did was apologized over the speaker. There was no rep waiting to help upset customers so we had to wait TWO hours in line as there were only 2 girls at the counter when there are 6 counters. They were completely unapologetic and although they set us up on another airline to fly back, the whole experience was completely unsettling. AVIANCA NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!"

Pros: "Movie selection is great."
Cons: "No cookies :("

Pros: "Main cabin extra leg room."
Cons: "Barely any help with delayed flight and connecting flight. Had to say a prayer and sprint through DFW to make the connecting flight."
