Cons: "I feel like they are cramming more seats on a plane. I am 5'2 and I felt I had no leg room!!!! It's an international flight, they should be some roominess!!! I rather chose an Asian airline than a USA airline. I can't believe the space!"

Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Pros: "Clean equipment and good food"
Pros: "The flight went very smoothly once we were finally on our way."
Cons: "Kiosks that worked were rare. Crowds trying to get boarding passes and finally getting their luggage checked were huge. Not enough staff to help confused passengers. Overall, the situation was something I have never experienced with any other airline."
Pros: "This was British Airways operated by American Airlines. I'm usually not a fan of American Airlines but this was a pleasant surprise. Plane was on time and pleasant. Seating was not roomy but what we expected. We were served dinner with option for and simple breakfast. Entertainment system was up to date with personal screens and choice of movies and games."
Cons: "There were six of us flying and we choice this flight because it was the lowest cost we could get per seat. When we try to check in for seating, we ended up having to pay significant fees to get seats together. I feel like this wasn't upfront and we may have used other Airlines/ flying times if we realized this wasn't the cheapest way to go. (I'll have to read the fine print better next time)"
Pros: "The meals were good and the flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "The space and seats were uncomfortable. The seat my husband was sitting in (30A window seat), the touch screen seemed to have some technical issues, for it did not recognize when you touch the screen. It was a bit frustrating trying to select entertainment. 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, therefore 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 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: "Absolutely nothing. I was upgraded from business and would have been better in business."
Cons: "The seats were horrible. The tv screen was so old and small I could barely see anything, and the sound kept cutting out. The food was the same quality as business class with less choices and no menus. The staff kept forgetting to clear the table or refill my wine glass. I never had to use the call button on a flight before, but on this trip I was constantly hitting call or flagging people down. If I had actually paid for 1st class I would have been livid."
Cons: "It didn't happen"
Cons: "Didn't happen"
Pros: "An agent found me a window seat for the Chicago-Barcelona leg of the trip with extra leg room. That was amazing. Also, the lost luggage assistant for American Airlines was super helpful and nice. Also, the 787 (I think that was the Chicago-Barcelona craft) was a very enjoyable airplane. It was super smooth. It had high tech windows that adjusted the amount or type of light that could filter through the windows depending on the settings."
Cons: "When I arrived in Barcelona my Bag went missing. It showed up an two hours after my flight landed."
Pros: "Everything. I had no problems at all when coming to Barcelona last week!!"
Pros: "The TVs/back of the chairs were great because they could shut off completely so there was no screen glare when you want to sleep, the headphone jack worked with good sound quality, and there was a decent movie selection. Staff was courteous and the food was fine."
Cons: "This flight itself was great overall. No complaints. The only thing I didn't like was that I'd wanted to book a return direct flight on American Airlines as well, but the price skyrocketed from a few hundred to over $2200, which is just outrageous, so I booked TAP Portugal instead. My friend paid under $600 round trip and it boggles the mind that the same flights shot up to over $2k... It's not realistic to expect customers to stay loyal to an airline that prices them out."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous."
Cons: "Delayed departure."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour because crew announced there was a discrepancy between # passengers boarding central records. Flight crew didn't do anything to comfort passengers during this. Captain made one announcement about turbulence once at the beginning but nothing else for 1/2 hour or longer long turbulence period. Crew took away tray without asking. Ran out of water. Doors did not open for quite awhile after docking but crew said nothing. Seats so small one had to keep elbows glued to body to eat without touching neighbors. Felt like cattle being driven to slaughter. Min"
