The crew. The boarding at The airport in Buenos Aires was a disaster. Got to the airport 3 hours before and only got to the gate 30” before departure

Pros: "The incoming flight was late, but we still made it to Durango on time."
Cons: "No fuel available"
Pros: "The crew was fine."

Pros: "They offered some entertainment"
Cons: "Took no caution with coronavirus. Packed the plane with the seats full and all rows filled. I was not expecting this especially since my flight was not cheap."

Cons: "The "Miami based" crew were a little abrasive"

Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."
Cons: "You have to pay for seats to sit with your travel partner."
Pros: "Extra seat width would always be nice"
Cons: "Prior to boarding, a gate attendant talked to the passengers in a VERY condescending way with regard to their carry on luggage. The original plane had mechanical problems, identified after half the passengers had already boarded. It was stressful enough without this person raising her voice and talking to us as though we were children."
Pros: "Pilots made up for delayed departure. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Everything was cancelled or delayed, missed connection are very common."
Pros: "Delayed 4 hours. Strung along the entire time. Awful experience. Inability to get hotel."
Cons: "Boarded onetime, maybe a little early, but still departed 25 minutes late for no apparent reason. This caused me to nearly miss my connecting flight. Got to the gate just as they were about finished boarding."
Cons: "The food was just barely edible. No leg room The crew was excellent"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable. Purser spoke clear"
Cons: "Poorly organized boarding in Cancun"
Pros: "Took an hour extra to get in the air but we arrived safe, and that is always 5 stars"
Pros: "Arrived early."
Cons: "Lack of professionalism, and exceptionally rude attendants on staff. No where close to on par with international standards from start to finish. AA desperately needs to improve their training and motivation programs for their staff."
Cons: "Our 5:30am flight was delayed for over 4 hours causing us to miss our connection. So by the time we got to our destination we had wasted the entire day. This was a loss of an entire day of our vacation. This was our first time traveling with American. We will never book with them again."
Pros: "Plane was only half full"
Cons: "American did not allow an upgrade at gate and said they never do that but just did it less than a year ago. He said we had to call, then walked away. Plane so old no plugs to charge devices on long flight, horrible."
Cons: "I expect better service from American Airlines, total disappointment. Given incorrect information by 2 gate agents concerning connecting flight delays."
Pros: "The movie selection was good"
Cons: "The crew kept bumping into people and were not a pleasant group."
Pros: "I am handicapped so I was concerned about my walker and ability to use stairs etc. The crew on the plant and boarding area couldn’t have been more helpful. I was impressed by the comfortable seats and friendly stewardesses. After the plane landed the first officer went to get my walker so I didn’t have to wait."
Cons: "The plane was so hot, by the time we landed everyone was literally dripping from sweat. It was so uncomfortable that it was cooler outside of the plane even though it was 83 degrees when we landed."
Cons: "Took off 40 min late without explanation"
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Cons: "Outdated 757. No individual entertainment. Power restricted to premium seats and was intermittent when it worked."
Pros: "Quick easy flight"
Cons: "The terminal was a long way from the main terminal and accessible only by shuttle bus. Also we had to re-check our bags following our first leg flight and subsequently couldn't change our flights to an earlier departure."

Pros: "Boarding as quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing bad to comment on as the trip was a smooth trip"
Pros: "Great crew and plane"
Cons: "The staff was rude not helpful and mean worst crew I've ever seen and I fly alot"
Cons: "Because our first flight was delayed so much, we missed our connecting flight and our rebooked connecting flight (made while on the phone while waiting for several hours on the tarmac) and didn't make it to our final destination until the morning of 6/23 (first flight was 6/21 and was supposed to arrive morning of 6/22). Spent the night in JFK."
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"

Cons: "The time allotted between flights was too short."
Pros: "Nothing, the worse experience I've ever had on a flight from the US Never AA again!!"
Cons: "Unprofessional crew!! The safety instruction was a mess, first it was on the big screen, totally black, only sound, then the crew started a discussion in the ail if the would do the safety instructions yes or no...in the end they did it without explanation what the were doing and in 2 minutes. Al three of them just did something. Rude and chewing gum crew, the dropped a salad bowl but not one of them was thinking about cleaning it up. The entire flight everybody walked over it in to the carpet. Friendlynes and service are two words that does not apply to this crew. From the first flight till the last flight AA made a mess out of it. Canceled our flight in JFK, no help or service, you are on your own when AA cancels a flight, after rebooking our flight we had a 7 hour stopover at Dallas, again no service, no voucher, no nothing. Then today with our return flight AA could not find our ticket numbers, turns out that when they rebooked our inbound flight they forgot to take over the return flight...cost us 2 hours and 10 minutes to check in at LGA Never, ever again with AA, even easyJet provides better service then AA does on intercontinental flight!"

Pros: "It was all good.it was"
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "the wntertainment worked."
Cons: "This is one of the worst flights I've been on in a long time. When I arrived to the airport they had not assigned me a seat and did so at the gate. I was in the worst sear on the plane. Very last seat on the plane by the lavatories and newr the flight attendants station. The flight attendants talked very loudly the entire flight. so loud I woke up and needed to watch a movie to drown them out. i wdoubt I will be back on American any time soon."
Pros: "The crew were helpful and as I have a disability they gave me a chair with moreegroom and closer to the exit."

Cons: "The lady at the boarding gate at newark airport was extremely unpolite and with a very law service attitude"
Pros: "My original flight and rebooked flight were both canceled, then this flight was delayed. Even with the extra time, we still sat on the runway because paperwork wasn't in order. It was just a mess."
Cons: "I had to rebook my own flight and considering the plane was already delayed, it should have departed as soon as we left the gate."
Pros: "Our crew was good but everything else was awful. A 1/12 hour flight ended up with us on board for 6 hours."

Cons: "Very tight. Not food except snack."
Pros: "Plane was on time and even landed early"
Cons: "The gentleman sitting next to me held his duffle bag on his lap the whole flight. Take off and landing included. Take off I thought no big deal, but when it was time to land the flight attendant actually looked right at him and said nothing.. When I put my tray down, there was sugar and coffee stains on it. Luckily, I had a wet wipe to wipe it off. The attendants were not very friendly and I was disappointed with them. It just seemed like they were in a hurry. Note this was my flight from Omaha to Chicago. NOT the connecting flight Ord-DCA."
Cons: "Lack of space in economy....might as well box each one of us up and stick us in the cargo hold."
Pros: "My flight was changed several times and I almost missed my connection flight international departure. But a lady at 800 customer service took care of everything. Local United personnel at Omaha airport is lack of customer service and handling knowledge."

Pros: "All perfect! Amazing how much nicer flight staff was!!"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Why do all the employees at United try to make you feel like your "putting them out" whenever you ask them anything. I have never experienced how an entire company can walk around with a chip on their shoulder. No life-threatening we are done."
Pros: "Boarded on time"
Cons: "Late to mke!"
Cons: "I never made it to Helena. Flight was delayed 2 hours so I missed my connection and had to fly to an alternate airport and buy myself a rental car and hotel room."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "The fact that my bag got sent to LAX."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Boarded plane with my 8 week old baby. After getting settled had to deplane due to mechanical issues. Then I stalled feeding as he has to nurse during takeoff to relieve pressure. Airline kept slightly postponing it so wasn't comfortable nursing as I needed him to eat during takeoff. But no realistic time was ever given. Eventually they cancelled flight and they rebooked next day. Then united realized they would have to give travel vouchers / hotel if flight was cancelled so they re labeled it "delayed" to avoid putting everyone up in a hotel. 13.5 hrs of a delay overnight is not a delay and deserves better treatment! To add insult to injury, my GATE checked stroller took 45 min to come up to the top of the jetway. 45 minutes! I had to ask 4 times with a screaming 8 week old with nowhere to set him! The kind girl kept paging down to them but nobody would bring it up. It was absolutely horrible. Then today at check-in they couldn't figure out how to print the infant boarding pass which ultimately took 30-40 min of the lady trying to no avail. I arrived 1 hr 10 min early to my flight and nearly missed it due to United. The issues with printing my "infant voucher" caused me to have to run through the airport and frantically collapse stroller to make on time. With zero sleep thanks to the debacle the night before. Beyond disappointed and believe should be compensated for this experience."
Pros: "Airport and crew on ground and in flight very nice"
Cons: "I'm a big guy and plane just to small"

Pros: "Almost didn't make my connection."
Pros: "Everyone was beyond helpful and wonderfully nice."
Pros: "The flight attendants are super duper nice. Like so nice. Too nice."
Cons: "The chairs will make your butt go numb after awhile. It's inevitable. The snacks are god awful packaged poison BUT the beverage selection is vast which it pretty dope."
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding, friendly staff, On time/early to arrival"
Cons: "Not a lot of space for passengers- even someone small like me at 5'2 and 120 lbs. Flight was also a bit turbulent"

Cons: "That I could get my seat assignment when I place the reservation"
Pros: "The United staff I interacted with were some of the friendliest people I'd worked with all day."
Cons: "Our first flight was delayed, which meant we'd miss our connecting flight. We were moved to a flight that would leave us in the airport for 8 hours. I called and someone got my onto an earlier flight, but when we showed up at the gate, we found out she hadn't finished the transaction and now there weren't enough seats for us. We were supposed to land in RIC by 2, but by the time we got a flight (which was again delayed), it was almost 10pm. The only helpful person I dealt with was John, who took my call to get us on another flight."
Pros: "Our flight was on time. Economy plus seats were roomy. Also, we had gate checked car seats and the pilots waited to ensure that they were delivered before de planing."

Pros: "View out the window"
Cons: "Delayed at Chicago for 8 hours before they canceled the flight. It was beautiful & Sunny in both Chicago (depart) & Omaha (arrive) all day. The flight was most likely canceled because of an incoming flight that never arrived. Stayed at hotel on my own dime after wasting an entire day. Completely unacceptable and will never use airline for this route again."
Pros: "Smooth boarding. Friendly crew. Got us there on time, despite a late start That included a gate change."
Cons: "Was asked to check my carry on bag, because the flight was full. Meaning they sold the seat I purchased for my wife (who was unable to make the flight). I did so, but when I looked in the overhead bin after the flight, it was empty. When we arrived in Denver, I waited at the baggage carousel, watched everyone pick up there bags, until there were only 5 or 6 bags going around. I then went to a counter behind the carousel and asked about my bag. I was only then told that my bag had been there the whole time I was waiting."
