No drinks service because the flight was so short, and there was no wifi either.

The food was ice cold and poorly selected. Staff was pleasant as usual

The mask policy is not enforced by the crew. Multiple people around us would not even wear the mask or have it on their chin. Flight attendants would walk past these people and not say anything. All they do is make overhead announcements about the masks being mandatory but they are terrible at enforcing the rules, very disappointing.

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "Flight attendants need to enforce all policies. It makes no sense to enforce a seat being leaned back a 1/2 inch but allow a Face Mask be worn as a Chin Guard through the entire flight instead wearing it properly!"
Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"
Cons: "It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all"
Cons: "Some of the Crew members were not covering their nose with their face masks"
Pros: "Fast food service"
Cons: "Very narrow seats in coach. If you’re sitting next to a larger person expect to be crunched."
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "The cabin was hot for the whole flight"
Cons: "We sat in boarding in about 90-100 degree heat for over an hour. Everyone is drenched in sweat and should have never boarded."
Pros: "Boarding was fairly quick and on time. Transfer in Phoenix was no problem. Luggage arrived OK."
Cons: "Seating is too small and too close to next rows. Unhappy with having to pay for seat assignments and checked bag while watching gate agents refuse to enforce overhead bag size limits."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."
Cons: "Healthy snack options"
Cons: "Small plane, forced to valet checkin carry on luggage, no drinks or snacks :/"
Pros: "After the initial delay, the female desk agent got us on another connecting flight without a problem. Second flights attendant was also great."
Cons: "They boarded the plane, only to tell us they had to de-ice, which is understandable. However, after waiting 20 min for the de-icing that never came, they made us get back off the plane because of mechanical issues. The captain/pilot was rude to the woman working the desk over the radio, to the point where she had to leave the desk and go speak to him in person (she knew we could hear everything.) That conversation is also how the whole line of people was informed that then knew about this mechanical issue since the night before, and chose not to fix it before boarding all of us. After getting to Philadelphia later than expected, we were forced to pay for hotel food that was horrible and overpriced. Only to then have our plane be delayed AGAIN because of mechanical issues, again the pilot not giving much information to the attendant she was faced by a room of 40 angry people and had no answers. The departure time slowly crawled out longer, and the only reason I knew was because of having the American app. Information/communication on all ends was poor. I usually fly Allegiant, which is notoriously “cheap,” and I’ve never had an experience like this. Happy my boyfriend has flown with American before and knew to give us an extra day so we didn’t miss the wedding we paid $800 in airline tickets to attend. Just disappointed."
Pros: "Routine flight. No problems noted."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "the gate attendant was very nice as my husband was stuck in security line (I have Pre check) He barely made it, but the guy never made me feel uncomfortable or rushed. He was kind, calm and reassuring."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed to have a chip on her shoulder from the moment we stepped on the flight. I had a broken foot and it was difficult for me to fit my boot and personal item under the seat. Rather than assisting me, she barked commands and quickly walked away as I attempted to address the situation. - poor attitude - failed to ask if I wanted a biscuit but simply slapped one down on my tray table (I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE) - American really needs to catch up with the other airlines and offer a GF option to those of us who have immune disorders. - no WiFi"
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "The staff wouldn't except my registration for my support animal!!"
Pros: "The complementary beverage was a welcomed surprise!"
Pros: "The crew was lovely. Really nice, and did a wonderful job with the cart service."
Cons: "We ended up being deleyed about 30 minutes, in damp weather. It's not like it was snowing. Not sure why it took so long. B/c of baggage charges now everyone brings a carry on. This seems to slow the process of boarding as know passengers are asked multiple times to check baggage (for free, which is the one nice thing) before boarding b/c the overheads will be too full. Group 6 which I was in seemed like it was just the rest of the plane. Super busy, took me forever to get to my seat all the way in the back. Why don't airlines reverse board? People sitting in the back should board first. I feel like this would save so much time."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane and dificult to sleep No breakfast when we arrived in Brazil In Lima, after the flight from Miami, the period for the connection to Brazil was very short. At the airport, when I inquired about attention to get through the security line, the answered was that we have to ask for permission to pass before the passagens that was waiting in queue."
Pros: "Nothing to like. If I could give them 0 stars I would"
Cons: "Tight connection from our previous flight yet the counter folks were rude and rushed us. My daughter is obviously 7 months pregnant. Because our connecting flight left milwaukee over an hour late, we had no time to even grab a sandwich, no problem we will buy food on the plane. Wrong! The food is was gone so quickly that by the time they got to us, they were out of everything. Oh did I mention we also had 3 children ages 2, 7, and 9. Oh yes and the entertainment? Small screens mounted on the ceiling of the plane. How about updating your equipment?? Plane was old. No USB to charge your phone and stream from their App. Terrible. We own a 2nd home in Maui and travel there twice per year. Looking at other options."
Cons: "I really did not like that I was unaware why I could not check in on my phone and then I get to the airport and the Alaska desk is closed. My phone just says the plane is sky west, me and the other workers at the airport had no idea what this meant. Very frustrating experience trying to check in, finally walker talkie a guy that new it was American. Frustrating I thought I would miss my flight, why not clearly state it's not an Alaska flight."
Pros: "Voo pontual, atendimento da tripulação, serviço de bordo, qualidade da aeronave."
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Good movies"
Cons: "not enough food"
Pros: "the check in went very well and the crew seemed efficient."
Cons: "the food was not good. it was not hot. the sound system was not good. the plane's screens were too far away. the earphones were a joke and did not fit well in the ear....plus no crew member came around offering them-I had to ask for them."
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Cons: "Horrible long delays."
Cons: "The tsa in chicago was very unorganized. The tsa workers were extremely rude."
Cons: "delay, then no sandwiches available for purchase onboard during a 3-hr evening flight"
Cons: "Rude staff, they changed our flight 2 times and did not offer a drink or food"
Cons: "The stewardesses repeatedly rammed their cart into my seat. They were so rude. it was appalling. I will never fly american airlines again"
Pros: "Good movie selections. Prompt clean up service after the meals"
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants (not all) were quite rude and inpatient. My husband and I had ordered vegetarian meals and at the start of the meal that asked us our names and apparently the wrong names were on the meals so we didnt get it. But when the cart came down with the choices we told them what happened and they got upset and said we denied the vegetarian meal. Plain crazyness."
Pros: "Captain did his best to make up time"
Cons: "Flight was initially delayed an hour, then bumped to 30 minutes late."
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Liked the little compartment above the tray for electronic devices and the outlet below helped keep my grandsons tablet charged for the flight! Liked the headrest - had flaps that folded out for support if you needed a nap."
Cons: "Will never fly American again"
Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"
Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "Crew came by once with drinks, never came back through with food/snacks. Never came through with water, as they usually do later in this flight. They spent most of the time chatting in the galley."
Pros: "Movies and on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "Crazy uncontrolled child in row across from us."
Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."
Pros: "The crew was very apologetic"
Cons: "The fact that we were an hour and 45 minutes late leaving. I know they say weather was the cause and not their control, but every time...yes, every time I fly American there's a delay. Every time I've flown United I arrive early."
Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"
Pros: "Great Workers, and Super nice staff."
Pros: "Taking off and landing."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Seating was cramped."
Cons: "Turbulence was horrible That there is no internet"
Cons: "The lady at baggage check-in was rude and persistent on not letting me board due to a slight fold in my passport. Other coworkers did not agree, and allowed me to proceed. She also spent 20 minutes in back searching for information while I waited and the line filled up. My luggage was also lost (the last to handle the luggage was this lady) and I needed to retrieve it 3 hours after my flight arrived."
Pros: "The plane actually left without a cancellation"
Cons: "Every flight on this trip was delayed"
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "The seats were sooooooooo small and it felt like it was a really old plane, it shook a lot."

Provide blankets and a real breakfast

Pros: "The crew was great. Trent was outstanding"
Cons: "This was a regional jet, and this flight segment was 3 hours. The seats seem to have a little more leg room than larger jets but much less cushioning, and the pitch/shape of the seat back was very uncomfortable. I could barely walk when we reached Houston."
Pros: "Crew professional. Flight on time and clean"
Cons: "Seating room was horrible. My knees hit the seat on front of me, fortunately the gentleman sitting there did not try to recline. Seat very narrow As well as isle. Controls for monitor in seat back on arm rest and I kept activating it accidentally while trying to nap which was annoying. I’m 6’1” and 190 pounds so am not what I’d consider oversized but I’ve not been this uncomfortable on a flight in many years. Will make a note to avoid this line and plane in the future"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was the best!"
Cons: "The weather."
Pros: "The pilot tried to make up lost time in the air."
Cons: "Due to regulations, our crew had to delay our flight 39 min. This was done the night before. There was no way we were going to make our connecting flight, but no one from United seemed to care. The crew from milwaukee to Houston was rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "The crew was very good."
Cons: "We had a two hour weather delay and 4 gate changes. Had to unnecessarily walk from one gate to the next. Every time we got a. Texted updated we had a new gate number. Frustrating.

Pros: "Departed / arrived on time, clean, good snack options."
