Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA.

Cons: "Boarding is inconsistant. At JFK it was like boarding a plane in China. Everyone congested at the front. One Delta person taking tickets. Two Delta people not helping her. We boarded slowly, partially because people STILL refuse to check bags that are not carry on bags. We left late. Why have zones at all? Why have carrying rules that you don't enforce? Why did we pay $25 a bag if you don't enforce this? Food choices are funny, especially the "tapas". Whoever thinks THOSE are tapas should Google the word tapas. Delta reportedly earned 746 million in the first quarter and you charge for everything and still can't come up with decent food for us to BUY?"

Please keep in mind this isn't a security check point we went through all with no problem.This is boarding after you have you ticket scanned and they are boarding row by row.

Cons: "The plane was very old fashioned with outdated seats."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that the fares are none transferable to family members. I like the fact that I can travel very early in the morning.

It was an excellent trip from web check-in to reaching to the airport and check-in luggage. The flight crew was very polite, warm meal, tea or drink. Pilot was great, flight was great apart from a few turbulence. We reached our destination five minutes before scheduled time. So overall my trip from JFK to KIN was excellent I have nothing to complain about. Experienced things for "yourself" don't rely on the reviews that you read because if I did, I would have cancelled my flight. Thank-you CAL for my marvelous experience with you and you just gained a new customer. They say one bad apple spoil the bunch, but if you didn't have a bad experience with CAL don't follow the few that may have maybe because they don't adhere to rules and regulations. And yes TSA do check bags for security reasons because my TV was opened for inspection to see if it was ok and resealed with the TSA inspection card inside, nothing was missing from my luggage's. Thanks CAL excellent experience with you guys."

Pros: "Fast and easy service"
Cons: "In 2 weeks, my husband and I had 4 flights with American and none of them went as planned. We endured flight cancellation, incomplete rebooking with another airline, rude customer service agents, multiple flight delays as well as multiple day lost luggage. Finally, it cost $2K more to get to my destination. Obviously not flying American again."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "At the end of three flights to obviously be understaffed and to have luggage take an hour and fifteen minutes is disrespectful and shows how AA is callous about it’s passengers needs."
Pros: "Entertainment streaming was decent."
Pros: "American did transfer us to another flight after several hours' delay."
Cons: "Lack of scheduled flight crew caused a 2 hour delay causing American to re-route us via Chicago in lieu of Phoenix. Still, arrived 2 hours later..."
Pros: "Not much"
Pros: "My Business Class upgrade."
Cons: "Needs better snack selection."
Cons: "No personal space or legroom. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Cons: "When I arrived in Kingston after a long day of traveling only ONE of my TWO checked bags arrived that has my clothes swimsuits shoes jewelry and a host of other important items"
Pros: "Great attendants. Easy ride. Easy take off, easy landing."
Cons: "We departed late due to something going on in the runway. No free wifi option."
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "The flight attendants were courteous and the ride was very smooth, I felt at home."
Cons: "We received no snacks coming back home to Jamaica but we give thanks for you guys informing us."
Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "all my flights have been ontime and they arrive earlier than the expected better late that never"

Cons: "Can't think of anything I dislike about the flight. Service was great!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst flight ever."
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"
