Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Cons: "When there isn’t a person assigned to the emergency exit row and you offer your service and the flight attendant says you need to pay for it. Seriously there a deadly flu and the fight attendant is concerned about the price difference and not making sure there is social distance. Tons of empty seats and they never offered for anyone to switch"
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and caring."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The pilot explained that the plane had been sitting in the sun all day and during the flight check, they realized that the interior of the plane had gotten over 100 degrees by not being operated for hours before the flight. Seems like poor planning or preparation."
Pros: "Ne’er front of plane for easy on/off. Payed extra for extra leg room."
Cons: "Flight attendants were overworked on a full flight."
Pros: "Good flight and crew"
Pros: "The crew was amazing,attentive and courteous."
Cons: "Better boarding procedure. Everyone was budding the lines not well organized."
Cons: "Seats on American Airlines are the pits. So much so, that my back has gone into spasm. Bottom line, in future I'll do my best to avoid flying American!"
Cons: "Plane was late arriving from California because of mechanical problems. Then we sat on JFK runway waiting to take off. Pilot said we'd be taking off in about 9 minutes. A half hour later we took off. In the middle of the flight a loud horn went off in the cabin. It lasted for about 20 seconds. It was really quite alarming given the earlier mechanical problems. No explanation ever given."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Pros: "I liked the arts and craft show that was showing on the plane."
Cons: "As I came into the airport I went to a kiosk to check in and the attendant at the kiosk basically took over my passport and started pushing buttons that I never asked her to push. I eventually got my boarding passes only to find I wasn’t assigned a seat for the first flight and I will get it later at the gate. After getting through security my name was called for a extra security screening which I thought was interesting since I have Global Entry and am an American citizen. Weird. Because my name was called I had to get to the gate early. Upon arriving to the gate the gate agent confirmed I have extra security screening and she would assign my seat soon. After waiting some time she assigned me to a middle seat in the last row of the plane! After boarding someone came and sat next to me that was overweight and should have been charged for 2 seats. With such a long flight it’s the least American can do."
Cons: "After take off I could no longer hear anything through the headphone jacks. Staff was VERY rude & unpleasant the whole trip. Feed half of my family, and left the other half of us to sit there until there was only one choice left, Then completely forgot to serve me anything."
Cons: "Flight departure was delayed for 30 mins by a flight attendant not showing up on time."
Pros: "The sight that you can see when you fly over Cordillera de los Andes."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment. We had to board by bus, not by the bridge. Old plane."
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "Courteous professional staff!"
Cons: "I couldn't imagine a smaller space for traveling - rediculously small!"
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Cons: "Plane not ready to go because of missing trash bags"
Pros: "The process of boarding, baggage check, etc"
Pros: "Food was really good, crew members fantastic. Boarding was a little messy, a mix between anxious passengers and weak organization."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work and there was no way to solve it. It should've been checked before. It was a 9-hours flight with almost nothing to do."
Pros: "seats and space were good"
Cons: "2 hour delay and freezing cold inside the plane"
Pros: "I lucked out, I was in a row alone, so got to stretch out and sleep for 3 of the 6.5 hours of the trip."
Cons: "The entertainment might have been good, but the touch screen system was extremely cumbersome andf it was hard to get a good overview about what was available and then when one thought one had chosen something, something else started to play. I tried to listen to classical music, but the cabin music was louder,"
Cons: "We boarded an hour late and then sat in the runway for ever. Flight was scheduled to arrive in Nashville at 1137p we arrived at 148a! Ridiculous"
Pros: "Everything till we landed in Paris"
Cons: "Thinking I was flying Brit Airways and switched to American Airlines was a unwelcome surprise. No one at the gate in Paris to tell me the next switch....Not British Airways but Aer Lingus totally different flight number and on the other side of the airport. Got sick of climbing stairs. American should have had an English speaking greater to tell me about the Aer LIngus switch. Took me 3 hours to figure it out on my own, go through security twice and barely make the flight to Dublin."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Also rearranging our seats so that we could sit next to our 2 year old daughter was very helpful."
Pros: "The new Dreamliner was amazing. However my great experience was also directly a result of the unfilled nature of the plane. This gave so much room to the passengers, food service was fast and plentiful, and crew was in a good mood."
Pros: "I liked the crew and I liked the entertainment, as it made the 10+ hour trip go so quickly. I was also able to sleep 1/2 the time. The crew was extremely nice. I would love to fly BA or AA or any of their partners as long as the fates are reasonable."
Cons: "I checked in online and had my seats reserved and I only had one piece of luggage to check in. In LAX, as long as I checked in for the flight on time, all I had to do in LA was go to a kiosk and check my luggage myself and give it to the people who work at the counter. The whole process took 5 minutes. However, even though I was checked in For my flight, in LHR, I was told that I still had to wait in the long line for those who needed their boarding passes among checking in tons of luggage. I was given a paper ticket lthough i already had one in my iPhone apple wallet. Besides waiting, for what I thought was a waste since I only had to check in luggage, the gates seemed so far away and the scheduling boards don't indicate right away as to what gate I need to go to. Luckily, my app told me what gate and I was hoping it was correct because I had to walk so far. Basically my gripes were with the airport and not with the flight itself. One thing bout the plane from London to lax, it seems the bigger the plane, the less legroom I had. I felt too close to the people next to me. The plane from Paris had more room."
Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."
Cons: "I did not fly I lost my flight they had a problem with the airplane on my flight from brasilia to sao paulo so I arrived late lost the connection to my other flight from Sao Paulo to LAX. Also they lost my luggage. LATAM and American Air Lines doesnt know where my luggage is. I arrived at my LAX 12 hours after. They still dont know where my luggage is"
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "Comfort was about equal to any other flight I've taken. Most of the crew members were friendly. Free wine."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment choices were lame. I suppose most people sleep on long flights. The food was not great. Mostly edible if you're really hungry. There was not enough room for everyone to put a carry on in an overhead bin. Luckily, I'm short and I keep mine under the seat."
Pros: "Assigned seats"
Pros: "The airline was excellent, I am over being cramped in these planes for long flights. Unfortunately living in Australia makes us have to do the long flights."
Cons: "When you are travelling on long flights travelling all night, people in front have seat reclined right back and it is so hard to get out when you need to go to toilet."
Pros: "State of aircraft was great. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Gate information for flight was not posted on monitors in airport. Boarding was disorganized, required transferring onto a bus and later onto plan. Flight take off was delayed. Flight arrival was delayed by 50 minutes."
Cons: "I NEVER TOOK THE TRIP I WANT MY $$ MONEY BACK"

Pros: "Constantly good AA service"
Cons: "The chairs have to be better for a 7h flight"

Pros: "The flight attendants were very pleasant"

Cons: "They would not move me from next to the smokey 50'year old next to me. that's fine. But they told me I couldn't tell her to bathe and quit smoking. O well. I'm not gonna hold it against them for stinky old lady"
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "Although the flight was booked solid I was bery comfortable. The plane had frontal entertainment which made time go by fast."
Cons: "The plane had no TV in front of the seat for a international flight, the space was tiny as well. I could never recommend this to anyone else."
Pros: "On time. No issues"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "If the airlines was able to help finding my pierce that was missed at the security or the craft"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional, and the food and beverage on the Lufthansa transatlantic sector were better than US carriers offer."
Cons: "The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat. I will avoid this aircraft if possible in the future."

Cons: "The flight was about 9 hours delayed and I didn’t feel like anyone was trying to make up for it"
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed by 4 hours due tknsmong in India. I called United ahead of time to tell them I was not able to make my flight and if there was anyway I could get a new ticket. The representative was confident that 40 minutes between my flights at Delhi was enough time to make it despite me reminding her about the time it took to get off the plane, pick up my luggage, get through immigrations and travel to my terminal. She was very wrong. She insisted I call them when I land and that I go to the ticket booth. Little did she know that once I miss my flight my ticket is no longer valid and I was no longer able to enter the airport in India. Once I reached the entrance I was directed to a Untied booth all the way at the end of the terminal and was told to buy a new ticket. There was no United representative at this booth. I waited 3 hours and even called the number posted at the booth. No one picked up and no one came. I had wasted several hours. I ultimately decided to buy a ticket online spending another thousand dollars to get back home when I was told that I would be given a new ticket at the booth by United. But I had to wait another 24 hours outside the airport because I was not allowed in so early prior to my flight. Very unprofessional and unhelpful when I needed it the most."
