Cons: "Catering not up-to the standard. Ran out of food. Seats too congested"
Cons: "Boarding this flight consisted of minimal organization on the crews behalf, the Gate's security machines were off, people scattered everywhere with not enough seats to fit everyone. When entering the gate (with security machines turned off keeping in mind everyone has already passed general airport security and is only trying to enter the gate. Staff would direct passengers towards an attempt at creating a boarding queue. Once passing the gate doors and walking towards the queue directed by staff, it seemed to be a normal occurance to have another staff memeber shout at you and redirect you another way. Getting scolded by gate employees and requested to remove all electronics turn them on and being requested to remove most clothing items at the gate while everyone is watching with security machines off while only selecting a few passengers seems to be a regular occurnace in Doha & with Qatar Airways. People standing all around, no queues were initiated by staff, instead staff would push through passengers to get to the front instead of propretly annoucing the boarding through an intercom. No matter how loud staff was screaming their sounds were drowned out by the passengers which turned boarding a full translatlantic flight into a chaotic scene. Once on the flight I noticed the headphones provided were broken, I politely requested a new pair...from 3 different employees...which took over 20 mins to replaced. Qatar Airways prides itself on quality unfortunately as an economy passenger I have yet to experience any of that other than when it comes to good on flight entertainment."

Cons: "5 hour maintenance delay due to non-responding maintenance crew. Deplaned. Then re-boarded. Then additional delay due to broken tug. Ridiculous."

Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."

Cons: "Too much advertisement!!!! Between the credit card offers and aa advantage program it’s overwhelming. When trying to enjoy the onboard entertainment it was once ahead too much advertising. Overkill!!!!"
Cons: "Ability to download premade events apple calendar and apple wallet tickets was seemingly impossible. Send me one email with each of those items as it’s one of the number one thing customers care about"

Cons: "A bit too much taxiing but that's understandable at least"
Pros: "I was comped an upgrade to first class for the 25 minute flight. That’s something."

Cons: "Working plane mechanical issues"
Cons: "Actually having a flight to Charlotte. They delayed flight without much warning... actually, they were delaying/cancelling many flights without warning most of the day. Long story short, I had to get a ride to LaGuardia, to catch a different flight. That flight got delayed when boarding"
Cons: "2 hour delays on both flights of a round trip"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Pros: "That I could watch movies"
Cons: "How complicated it was to watch movies. Look at Netflix, they know how to do it right."
Pros: "Smooth flight, entertainment"
Cons: "The flight attendants just weren’t friendly and rather moody Many just felt they didn’t want to be here on the flight. No smiles, subpar service. Never saw attendances walking through except when serving us our meals or drinks"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Cons: "Least favorite leg of the trip. The seats were super tight with very little room. The crew was the least friendly I have met. The food was the least pleasing I have ever had."

Cons: "i never LEFT!"
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with an efficient and present crew."
Cons: "First, passengers had to wait in the main terminal for a bus ride to a remote terminal to wait to board. The only food items offered in first class were unhealthful packaged snacks. On a flight such as this, at 8:12 am, something like a breakfast wrap would be more appropriate, especially considering the fare charged."

Pros: "The plane was fairly new. Video worked."
Cons: "You sold me an Iberia flight and stuck me on American. That's very wrong! Then, I had a screaming infant and didn't get one minute of sleep on an overnight flight. American is so cheap they don't even have ear plugs any more. Seats are too small."

Pros: "Good service in 1st class."
Cons: "Our 10:40AM flight got cancelled. We had to wait in line until 1AM with regular check-ins to rebook for 8:40AM. When we made it to the airport again after limited sleep, that flight also got cancelled. We bought a ticket with LATAM which was a breeze. Throughout the following week, we tried calling them numerous times to have them tell us we had to loose yet more time by having to go to their Cusco office... but they couldn't resolve the issue either. We had to escalate this over the phone from their office so they would issue us a flight back to Lima at no charge to us. Now, I can only hope that they will honor this ticket but I'm not expecting much."
Pros: "Nothing. AA is the worst airline. Period."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants, delayed flight (as always), just AWFUL."

Pros: "I had ample room and I really like the biscuits"
Pros: "After boarding and a 20 min wait seated we were told we had to leave the plane because of the broken something . It was fixed and we were off about two hours late. Fresno is a beautiful easy airport."
Pros: "The flight was not only on time, but a little early!! The flight crew were fantastic & the plane looked new. Everything went according to plan which rarely happens these days!!!"
Cons: "Ladies in the front desk are super RUDE yes I said super not just rude! I WILL NEVER book with American Airlines again. Worst customer service I have ever encountered. When I left from Fresno onto when I left from Pheonix!"
