A 50 minutes flight whit 90 minutes delay, thanks American Airlines
Pros: "Great flight, great crew, comfortable seats, good entertainment. I LOVE the AA 787s"
Cons: "Not have 6 hour delays after people have already boarded the plane."
Cons: "Checking bags in PHF very poor. Disorganized and poorly managed. Staff needs more training and explicit direction. Kiosks should ALL be in working condition!"
Cons: "miserable crew, old equipment. Cabin was very cold during flight"
Pros: "Because the flight wasn't full we passengers in the main cabin had the chance to spread out a bit more, which was great on such a long flight. Also the flight attendant let me have my scotch for free! Hooray!"
Cons: "Without power at each seat it's difficult to take advantage of the otherwise free entertainment that is only accessible through the app or on a laptop. There was a DC power outlet at my seat (not all of the seats in the main cabin even have that) but guess what--it required a cigarette-lighter-style adapter to plug in. I certainly don't travel around with one of those! And most of the other seats in the main cabin had no access to power at all. My battery wouldn't possibly last through a 7-hour-plus flight without supplementary power. Oh well, fortunately there are still books and magazines. Just like old times. Be more like United or any other international airline, American!"
Cons: "Traveling during the holidays is never fun and a flight with American International doesn’t make it any better. No personal entertainment system on board, no place to charge a phone, an overnight flight with lights on bright enough to read by and a seat clearance of about 1cm."
Pros: "Plane was only half full"
Cons: "American did not allow an upgrade at gate and said they never do that but just did it less than a year ago. He said we had to call, then walked away. Plane so old no plugs to charge devices on long flight, horrible."
Cons: "no air jets. told it was an old plane with no air jets. Very uncomfortable flight for 7.5 hours."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The plain was very old meaning no screens, outlets, pretty much no entertainment what so ever."
Pros: "After we boarded there was a lot of confusion with the flight attendant. Apparently people ‘s bags got mislabeled. He didn’t know the those passengers final destination. Then he called out to see if a passenger was on board...shouldn’t he know? He had the list in his hand. Another baggage issue. Third, he asked if there were children under 10...was thoroughly confused when he only found one. It was a bit unsettling to the point where we were wondering where we were really going to end up. But our pilot, Hercules, got us there."
Cons: "Newport News airport was exceptional."
Pros: "food, alcohol very good, pleasant flight"
Pros: "Crew was excellent, very polite, very helpful."
Cons: "Entertainment system would not play any movies or music. Eventually they got it working for most passengers, but around 20% including myself still had no service."
Pros: "All of the above marked excellent. Very smooth flight too."
Cons: "The vegan food was a bit ordinary. Maybe think of Thai and indian veggie curries, roasted veggie and potatoes, pasta with no cheese, etc. :)"
Cons: "Overseas flight and the seats were so tiny. I literally have bruises on my legs on the sides and on my knees from being crammed into the seat in front of me. I'm 73" tall and I couldn't even lower my tray all the way to set food and drink on it."
Cons: "the seat space just to tight not any leg room on long flight"
Pros: "It wasn’t overcrowded"
Cons: "It took 3 planes to get us out of DFW. The first 2 had mechanical problems. The third got us to Amsterdam 4 hr late. None of the overhead ser lights functioned properly. We will never Fly American again."
Pros: "Good seats with a bit more room than most planes. Very good staff onboard."
Cons: "Outdated 757. No individual entertainment. Power restricted to premium seats and was intermittent when it worked."
Cons: "It got delayed and delayed, cancelled and re-routed and delayed two more time. I have yet to make it to Knoxville."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent"
Cons: "The connecting flight from philadelphia to amsterdam was cancelled by American airlines due to a faulty plane. The system auto-rebooked many passengers on the flight on a 2 connections flight to arrive in Rotterdam for the following day. This was obviously not a suitable alternative. However after hours of waiting at the gate to get a better flight, an american airlines representative was able to rebook a flight to amsterdam via london that was still not until the following evening. I had to stay in philadelphia overnight and had to find a room on my own. The flight the next day went better however I still lost a day and a half of my trip. Unfortunalely for me, the issues did not end there. There was an issue in communication with british airways; american airlines never gave them the new flight details so british airways marked me as a no show for the Rotterdam flight and cancelled my return flight. By luck i called the day before my flight back to the US since i felt something was wrong. British airways representative was able to rebook me on a similar flight for the same day. Will most likely not use this airline again for international flights"
Pros: "Plenty space due to flight not completely booked ."
Cons: "No personal choice in entertainment."
Pros: "I liked that food and entertainment was included without additional charges, even a glass of wine."
Cons: "Not too comfortable to sleep in."
Pros: "Good personnel"
Cons: "No individual video screens, no choice of movies - as if we're back in the 1990s! Unheard of for a transcontinental flight! Be sure to bring your own entertainment! Gluten Free breakfast was useless - yoghurt which I couldn't eat + underripe fruit. Be sure to bring your own!"
Cons: "Plane was SUPER old. As a result: No entertainment: Couldn't relax with a movie Limited space between chairs: Couldn't use my laptop No Wi-Fi: Couldn't work Old looks: I felt I was in a museum Obviously the plane was broken: 3 hour delay, missed parts of a wedding Good job!"
Cons: "plane does not have in seat monitors, using tablets for entertainment. Power plugs worked on and off during the flight old equipment (767) but still better than PHL-AMS 757"
Cons: "I was unable to choose my seat, so my boyfriend and I had to fly cross country on opposite ends of the plane. There was a stewardess named Karen who was so rude. She clearly was not happy to be working, never smiled, and banged on the bathroom door while I was peeing because I was "not allowed to miss the instruction video." Had I not seen it a few hours earlier, I would have waited to use the restroom. Good thing they showed the same video three times in a row."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was on American Airlines 220, not a BA carrier. No power outlets. No Wi-Fi. No individual entertainment. Cramped seating in spite of paying a premium for improved seating. Lousy food. Flying to Hong Kong on AA was much better. Never again on AA to Europe."
Pros: "We paid almost $100 each extra for our seats. For that price we should at least have had a little wiggle room. My husband is 6'4" tall and it was a pretty uncomfortable flight for him. It was American booked thru Iberia."
Cons: "The seats were quite cramped. It was a long flight to be so cramped. The flight attendants were very nice and hospitable. It was also nice to get a pillow & blanket. When we flew to China on American I was appalled that they were charging for use of them."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Cons: "No tvs for a long international flight. No wifi. Come on, your competitors offer much more at the same price. Not flying BA again."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "American airline serviced the flight with an extremely undersized plane that was only suitable in seat size for children. Our family of 5, including 2 children were placed each in a different location. The 2 men, average size, 5'9" were placed in window seats that required your head to be bent to the side because the wall curves over and the seat was so narrow. Everyone was hanging over each other's seat. There was no leg room. Everyone on the plane was upset and in disbelief that for 7 hours we would have to fly like that. Spending thousands of dollars, I did not expect this extremely closterphobic conditions. I would have paid extra for better seats. Not a happy customer."
Cons: "We bought 3 seats on Business class. My seat did not have the TV working. After flying for 2 hours the flight attendant gave me a portable TV, after asking multiple times. The food was totally horrible. The catering company that American Airlines uses needs to be replaced immediately. Flying TAP, Emirates, Latam, British Airlines , their catering company is very good. Flight attendants were sarcastic and rude. The service was equivalent if you fly coach class."
Pros: "Cleanliness of plane, attitude of crew, on time"
Cons: "0600 departure. Too early."
Cons: "No TV's in back of seats (aisle TV's with poor resolution), no ac outlets, no wifi onboard. Needed to change a tire, flight was delayed 2 hrs"
Pros: "Courteous crew, easy experience smooth "get in and get out" process"
Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"
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: "Good crew"
Cons: "Very dark and hard to see entire trip Overhead lights too bright and aimed at odd angle"
Pros: "The Spanish staff were nice."
Cons: "Air plain was old."
Pros: "Excellent. See above."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Old aircraft with issues"
Pros: "Glad AA offers a direct flight from Philly to Amsterdam."
Cons: "The flight left over two hours late, for reasons never provided. We were not alerted until after I arrived at the airport (thanks for the timely email, AA). I also dislike having to pay extra for a seat after I've already paid for the ticket!"
Pros: "Gave us plenty of food and entertainment"
Cons: "the touchscreen for the inflight entertainment wasn't working properly - slow/unresponsive on the right side - and the announcements were deafening over headphones"
Cons: "Plane needed to be updated. CRT TVs still? More space in seating for such a long duration flight. Head rests that don't rise more than a few centimeter. What's the point then?"
Pros: "Nothing really. I feel for the crew. The space is so small and confining there is no room to work or move around"
Cons: "We thought we would get some decent amenities with a name brand carrier but American has basically become like Spirit or Frontier. International travel used to be exempt from impossibly small seats, lack of in flight entertainment and terribly overmatched crew members scurrying to try and complete their duties. Terrible. But the good news is if you pay an extra fee they will let you get on the plane first. More time to be miserable! Hoorah!!"
Pros: "I'm in the military so thank you for allowing active duty to board with 1st class passengers. Also having the free movies available to watch is great too!"
Cons: "No bad comments to put here. The only thing I would recommend would be to add a free Internet option"
