The flight was delayed for hours then canceled, because they couldn't find a captain to fly the airplane!!! On the next day they kept postponing the boarding from 10:00 AM to 01:00 PM and when we finally got on-board we had to wait for almost 2 hours for the catering to deliver 50 trays of food and the utensils!!! Unbelievable...
At the boarding gate i was informed the airplane suffered a downgrade and therefore my business seat wasn’t available anymore. The company wasn’t open for conversation and simply changed my business seat for a coach seat. After boarding the whole experience was terrible: the food made me throw away 1h later, when i felt sick i called for assistance and nobody showed up, the flight attendants were rude and hit me 3 times without apologizing. Never felt so humiliated and disrespected during a flight.
Rough on the edges staff both at the JFK terminal 8 in NYC and then on board - they all seemed uninterested and quite passive aggressive in their demeanor. I fly Delta and JetBlue often - several tiers above AA in every aspect. The plane was in good shape with nice leather seats - but they couldn't make up for the "unpleasant crew" on board.
Flight Miami São Paulo was amazing but São Paulo to Recife was not. The airplane had not AC before it take off and when asked about to turn the AC on the flight attendant was rude and told me to wait for it to be on in the air. Totally disrespectful with all the crew who as tired after a international flight.
This was a very rocky flight made me feel that the person that was flying the plane was learning on the job
Standard flight. Could be better by taking off and/or arriving at scheduled time.
Terrible hit Ding noise at take off and landing. Needs to be checked!!!
Cons: "The wifi was never turned on so we never had any entertainment available. This made the flight less enjoyable."
Cons: "They messed up the seat assignment I paid extra for, and while I bought WiFi for the entire trip it turned off halfway through."
Pros: "Great crew and good seat in Main Cabin Extra!"
Pros: "That the flight ended"
Cons: "Everything. In a flight from Miami/Orlando (full of families) you are not allowed to choose seats, at the gate (where you supposed to change seats) the staff was rude, inside the plan people make their own changes and it gets a mess. Terrible experience."
Pros: "Crew was absolutely precious."
Cons: "Delayed because a passenger was let on that shouldn’t have been. The plane was kind of beat up and gross. The gate changed after boarding started. This is the second flight in two weeks that had the wrong gate posted."
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Cons: "Better customer service, better customer experience, no delays"
Cons: "American Arline’s gave us a meal voucher and hotel stay. Left be t day. Not happy."
Pros: "Comfortable good service and friendly attendants and good price"
Pros: "The kind staff made the flight more bearable."
Cons: "No personal TV screens to watch movies, which would have been more acceptable if there were plugins at each seat to plug in personal phones/ipads/etc to help maintain battery. BUT THERE WEREN'T. Everyone's phones/ipads died a few hours into the flight and therefore had to stare at the wall for HOURS. I even brought my laptop to get some work done, but without a plugin to keep it charged, it died. In this day and age, for an overseas flight that is 10 hours long, to be this old old without updated features and without plugins, this is unacceptable. Flat out ridiculous. This plane was SO OLD and dingy. Just awful."
Pros: "New Plane interior"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The carrier was supposed to be Alaska it turned out to be American Airlines and with that comes the confusion checking in with the wrong confirmation number. On a separate note, this was a bundled itinerary and the Thrifty Car shuttle was so infrequent and slow to the terminal I nearly missed my flight... I am not sure if I would bundle my travel plans again..,,also Thrifty car rental was short on cars in Liz Angeles on arrival"
Cons: "The flight from Miami to Sao Paulo was delayed, therefore, I lost the flight from Sao Paulo to Asunción, those from Latam did not give me any solution and they sent me to the people of American Airlines saying it was their fault. I traveled 3 hours through the whole airport and they did not give me any solution, no new flight."
Pros: "Great seats in first class"
Pros: "early flight. Smooth. Good landing. Friendly folks."
Cons: "No WIFI. Sat on Tarmac for 15 minutes upon arrival. No fault of anyone though."
Cons: "No other snack choice, just pretzel. Can we have some cookies?"
Pros: "Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!"
Cons: "Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!"
Cons: "We have to wait inside of the plain 45 min"
Cons: "There was only a shared screen. And the AA Entertainment app didn't work"
Cons: "Past was dry... It was the first time but changed my experience"
Pros: "My flight is tomorrow"
Pros: "It got me there safely without delays."
Cons: "Food isn't good. the connections can be offered in a much better and time efficient way but they were not. I had to change airports in NYC with a 7-hr layover while they could've flown me to JFK (there was available flights). Same thing with coming back, a long layover in Texas."
Pros: "Check-in staff very helpful"
Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"
Pros: "Very comfortable cabin,"
Cons: "couldn't get the in flight entertainment to work"
Pros: "We had a really nice, friendly and fun male flight attendant."
Cons: "1. Weather was bad and airlines knew it without sending out caution email or text messages early to passengers like Delta so that passengers can prepare for coming situation, either re routing flight or mental prepare for flight delay 2. Poor coordination - called to change flight and got confirmation via phone only found out in ticket counter that was not valid. 3. Luggage counter was bad, giving wrong picking luggage location caused two hour waiting in airport for nothing."
Pros: "Great movie selection and beautiful plane!"
Pros: "everything on travel is good."
Cons: "The airline did not inform us that the flight lands and passengers would need to travel by bus to the terminal. Just a surprise. I would like to know when booking the flight."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."
Cons: "LATAM deboarded me from the flight after I had boarded. They claimed American had cancelled my reservation because they did not think I would make my connection. I ran in order to make it and then instead of offering me information on the next flight they left me stranded with instructions to find American. Terrible, terrible customer service. I will think twice before booking a LATAM flight again."
Pros: "Again the wheel chair attendant was helpful, patient and considering we were not feeling well, assisted us at customs. We are seasoned travelers and this is not usually how our travels usually go. We appreciated the wheelchair services, the flight attendants."
Pros: "They have a huge selection of movies"
Cons: "They do not have gluten free options"
Pros: "Enterteiment was Very good. Plane New."
Cons: "Attendants did not give me coffee. Just yougurt. Nobody offered. But esse offered to Others."
Cons: "in the gate the crew didnt let me took my only hand bag i have with my personel things including my medcian and cupe machine for brithing they say that my bag is big but itwas in the standert that i was allowed to take up to airplane i think the reason was i was the lat passenger to go in the air aplein and no space t o put the hand bag"
Pros: "I liked because it was my mom first international trip and she got all the support from the crew. She loved it!"
Pros: "Plane was the best. Newer model and took us one less hour to get to our destination."
Cons: "Boarding was a little messy. We had to wait even though we had a toddler with us."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Cons: "Voar 8 horas de Miami para Sao Paulo sem entretenimento de bordo foi péssimo. Poucos filmes e nenhum com legenda em Português. Se o voo era pro Brasil acho que era o mínimo que se poderia esperar. A comida estava horrível."
Pros: "Madrid to Charlotte personal was very good but Charlotte to Atlanta was completely the opposite."
Cons: "The Charlotte - Atlanta portion! Flight attendance were like doing a favor... very bad service."
Pros: "We arrived to our destination safety."
Cons: "My seat was changed on me last minute without notifying me. I was moved away from my friends. It took a while to get this resolved with my seat. Once it was solved my chair was broken and could not recline. It took them 3 hours to get this fixed and were rude to me the entire time. I told them I had never been treated so poorly on a plane."
