Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Numerous delays."

Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."

Pros: "plane had lots of leg room- movies were free"
Cons: "bought ticket online for an Alaska Airlines flight 3 weeks prior to flight online, picked seat, too. When I checked in online 24 hours to flight, it became an American Airlines lflight, and my seat was gone, and when I checked at the gate, I had NO SEAT! I was the last person to board the flight- no seat choice!! Absolute bullshit when I pay for ticket and pick seat 3 weeks prior- on June 6. Didn't even know if I was going to get on flight until last minute."

Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"
Cons: "The very least employees should offer customer some waters to cool of"

Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Smooth flight. Early."
Cons: "In Charlotte the kiosks were not acting right. The agents were still exceptional but you could tell they were frustrated"

Pros: "Staff on the plane was pleasant."
Cons: "When I checked in I wasn't given a seat assignment. I had to wait until I got to the gate."

Pros: "Well organised"

Pros: "Roomy aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Aircraft is small, boarding is a mad dash to the plane"

Pros: "Plane full, like traveling in a cattle car, jammed in, My minimal contact with flight crew was fine, flying these days on any airline in coach is the same, American neither the worst or the best, in flight movie was the trolls, horrible movie"

Cons: "Flight was delayed arriving, connecting flight was in a completely different terminal = they didn't wait for us and auto booked us on a flight out the next morning. We requested our bags and drove home instead. Horrible."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."

Pros: "Boarding was swift. Gate staff was friendly."
Cons: "Phone charging stations at gate were down at every gate in the terminal. We waited nearly 45 minutes on the plane at the gate for a "flight attendant that is going to hitch a ride to make a flight from San Diego to Charlotte." This was obnoxious! We waited for almost as long as the flight was scheduled to take. Poor form."

Cons: "just like above + I had previously requested a vegan meal that had been confirmed and I was presented a "dish" of pasta loaded with cheese and was told that that was vegan ... 9 hours flight with no food The sound outlet on my seat was broken and, again, no entertainment for the entire flight"
