The aircraft was extremely cold throughout the duration of the flight. Of all of the long haul airlines I've flown with, I find that American Airlines offers the least leg room.

Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy.

The flight attendants were pleasant and courteous

The boarding was delayed and the boarding area was crowded, Boarding was delayed due to high number of wheelchair passengers. I was seated in an Even More Space seat, yet was placed beside a woman who was obviously suffering from some degenerative condition, and was slumped over towards my seat. The result was that I was uncomfortable the whole way back to Kingston.

On two of the legs of the trip they notice I was a tall person with long legs and upgraded me to seats with more leg room!! I didn't even ask. Thank you.

On the way back there were open seats with extra leg room and I asked the gate attendant if it was possible to switch my seat to one with more room and they said they only could if I paid extra.

Entertainment options (when they worked). Unlimited snacks were good for the kids. Legroom is better than any other airline for coach seats. Once we were in the air, all in all it was a good flight.

Boarding - we have two children ages 7 and nearly 4 and we had to wait to board with the rest of the crowded adult group. We were stalled waiting to take off for 1 1/2 to 2 hours which is tough when you have small children and it's nearing their bedtime (8 PM). In the row in front of us was another family with a small girl who was uncontrollable. It was not pleasant having items thrown at us, screaming, howling, and talking loudly. Again, we have two small children of our own and I was upset that the parents didn't better control their younger child. Reception for some TV stations stalled for hours at a time; i.e., NBC during a live airing of the Olympics.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
