Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "offer coffee at least"
Pros: "quiet, comfortable. good food in first class"
Cons: "people with "emotional support animals" should board LAST, not first"
Cons: "No room for long legs. Seats too close"
Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."
Pros: "The crew tries."
Cons: "Planes are just uncomfortable and the airlines have a monopoly on long distance travel."
Pros: "Honestly, nothing!!"
Cons: "Everything. This airline has disappointed me for the last time."
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: "Usual uncomfortable seating. Plane was not pulled into a gate. DCA should be an embarrassing operation for American."
Pros: "Seats are too narrow We paid extra to sit in the exit row so leg room was good Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seats too narrow...would like to see wider seats to be included when you pay a premium for leg room"
Pros: "The Flight Crew was amazing. They accommodated us very well. We were two toddlers, a pregnant mother and a handicapped senior."
Cons: "The counter representatives were terrible. They discriminated us & forced us to check our stroller at the counter & not at the gate. Even though another family had the exact same stroller & was permitted to enter with their stroller. We were two toddlers, a pregnant mother and a handicapped senior."
Cons: "American’s little buses at DCA suck. Why should I have to wait for everyone who gate checked a bag to get to the terminal? Let me walk to the terminal, get more buses, or get more gates."
Pros: "We’re able to get a different flight after ours was re-scheduled several times."
Cons: "Re-scheduling was later then earlier then later, hard to plan’ Comfort: airlines should have a bill of rights for passengers."

Pros: "Modern equipment (787)"
Cons: "8 emails from Kayak and 1 from AA warning of flight delay. But gate agents did not know anything about this and boarded us on schedule. So we sat for 90 minutes until the new aircraft was 'repaired'. Failed by a mile to make the connection. And I suppose I should have paid first-class fare, as then I would have made by connection?"
Pros: "Food wasn’t awful."
Cons: "Late. Very. Delayed at departure, then parked on the tarmac for most of an hour, perhaps more, to get to a gate. several of the cabin attendants were very unhappy people, grumpy, snappish and harsh. Old plane, no frills. (Center screens for entertainment, no usb charging in main cabin) come-one—use this poor old guy for short haul stuff."
Pros: "One plane had comfortable seats, with adjustable headrests."
Cons: "The first plane had very uncomfortable seats that do not really lean back and no charging ports for devices. No free WiFi."
Pros: "The seats were smalllish but had excellent amenities, such as a multifunction screen and built-in chargers for my phone or such."

Pros: "Smooth ride, easy security"
Cons: "Tight seats, return was late missed connection had to spend the night in Charlottte."
Pros: "British Airway, as their partner, made everything perfect."
Cons: "Iberia never picks up the phone. American Airlines always says 'No' first, & sticks with their 'No' for about an hour before being willing to think of work 'round solutions. AA online check-in didn't work, There's always a 45+ minute wait by phone to get AA to answer.. Then the customer service line of Airlines @ LAX had 70+ people needing help, but only one person working. So it was an hour long wait, only to be told 'No' you can't fly. Yet once I walked over to British Airways, they found a way to get me to my destination. Airlines just does not have enough employees and doesn't care."
Pros: "The crew was phenomenal!"

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "We had to walk outside to board the plane. My husband has two bad hips and we had to walk up a flight of stairs to board the plane. The plane was extremely small and our sits were located in the rear of the plane. The bathroom had an unpleasant odor."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "The service was super"
Cons: "Flight cancelled American Airlines aircraft old 30+ years No AC No entertainment"
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: "Everything went more smoothly this time than on our way to Phoenix. Even though the airport was quite crowded they had enough staff to get us through baggage check fairly quickly. They flight was smooth."
Cons: "No problems on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "We were denied boarding to our flight because the gate agent said we were late to the podium. We were there 10 minutes prior to departure. The jetway was still full of passengers. There was no reason she did not let us on other than she wanted to punish us for being late to the podium. We missed our connecting flight and had to rent a car to get home. Corporate American Airline customer relations was awful to work with. They did not care."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats Crying child"
Pros: "Great selection of movies, comfortable flight overall."
Cons: "Only one drink service for 5 hours, attendants not friendly or attentive, and it took an eternity--again with AA--for the bags to hit the carousel. Over 30 minutes' wait."
Pros: "Flight oversold. Couldn't use online system to book flight, so went 3 hours early to check in. Told couldn't check in still, had to do it at the gate. Then flight delayed two hours. No communication."
