Pros: "It was on time and efficient. Easy flight and I liked the announcements."

Cons: "I am still waiting for flight to DFW.. I"
Cons: "Tiny seats..."
Pros: "During boarding the first class cabin attendant gave me water so I could take a pill I had forgotten."
Cons: "Lav could have been cleaner. Boarding area at airport is small and crowded for all airlines. Stairs to aircraft instead of ramps."
Pros: "The access to a movie while flying was great to help pass the time."
Cons: "All good"
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: "The flight was on time and I was upgraded to First Class!"
Cons: "Lost the flight because of TSA who didn’t care I was missing the flight and gate personnel who didn’t allow me to get on board while the jet was still there. A nightmare and my luggages are still somewhere..."

Cons: "Wait time to board"
Cons: "One hour late"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour plus delay in plane on tarmac then long flight with entertainment not working. Crew could care less."
Cons: "Mechanical difficulties in Dallas caused us to leaveat least 1.5 hours late. Got to Phoenix after my scheduled and all other flights to Spokane had departed. AA put me up in a hotel at the airport. Had to wait 35 minutes outside for a shuttle in 102 heat at 9:00 in the evening. Had to ask for a voucher for evening meal."
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"
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Pros: "The amount of food we received was very unexpected and it was in abundance! The crew was awesome and friendly."
Cons: "I wish I could have picked my own entertainment to watch. But what was shown was entertaining."
Cons: "Horrible service and was never notified so I was not able to make either of these flights."
Pros: "The flight arrived early which was nice. But that's the only good thing about this flight."
Cons: "From checking my bag to leaving the plane in Dallas, I felt like AA employees thought passengers were just in the way. It was almost as if the flight attendants were traveling to Dallas and they happened to have to take care of passengers along the way. There were very few smiles, hellos, or how can I help you. It was almost always and grunt and what do you want? The personal device entertainment was very buggy. the movie I tried to watch kept skipping, like on old scratched CD."
Pros: "Relatively smooth flight"
Cons: "Seats are built for very small people. My knees were pressed into some hard surfaces for the entire 3+ hour flight. Made it a little painful to walk when we landed. The movie screens (not headrest systems) were all up overhead so you get a neck cramp watching anything. The headrest behind me pressed my shoulders forward and the extendable part would not stay up. The window stopped at about my shoulder so to look out I had to crouch down. AA better stop squeezing us for profits and start delivering a quality service or we'll all find some other airline that puts passengers first."
Pros: "Entertainment: individual tv screens, free current movies, flight tracking, music, etc."
Cons: "Not all food items were available when they got to us. The food was not that good. After landing we sat idle for about 15 minutes because another plane was at our gate..this resulted in us almost missing our connecting flight."
Cons: "One flight attendant in my section (23H), plonked food down on the tray with a curt, "passengers-are-a-nuisance" attitude. Her male colleague, when I asked about a spoon for the tub of ice cream said "It's there. If you can find it, you can eat it." I am a 71 yr old woman, and was shocked to be spoken to with such impertinence. Had I not already been travelling for16 hrs, having started the day in the Occupied Territories, I would have reported him to the senior person on board. I was just too tired."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and courteous. Arrived early."
Pros: "The service was okay, they were polite."
Cons: "The plane took forever to load, the plane departed late, although the captain still claimed we would make it 10 minutes early we did not. And to top it off, we waited on the tarmac to find a gate because we were late. Thanks American, I appreciate the reminder as to why I never fly your airline."
Cons: "Neither of our bags made it to Jacksonville. We have an hour drive home and it is 10:15 PM and I am yet to be served by customer assistance because there is a line and only one person working the desk!"
Cons: "The flight out of Dallas was delayed. We hustled to our last gate and the person was incredibly rude about last call a d is just arriving to the gate..."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic, the flight was smother and on time, boarding was timely"
Cons: "The plane was older with a poor entertainment system"
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"
Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"
Pros: "No vouchers were given out to customers"
Cons: "Delayed flights"
Pros: "Very kind crew and staff."
Cons: "Newport news has no comfortable seating in the airport...no where to nap until the flight."
Cons: "AA was slow to act or communicate and was half hearted in their attempt to make up for the cancelled flight"
Pros: "Overall very good"
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "The entire process from check in to boarding to the actual flight was wonderful"
Pros: "Got me home safely"
Cons: "Boarded us late. Got us to the runway, realized they didn't have the paperwork they needed and returned to gate. Swapped out a crew member whilst they were there. Lost place in the queue and so we ended up about an hour and a half late. Lots of excuses but don't recall hearing an "I'm sorry for the delay"."
Cons: "Weather delay"
Pros: "Flight was good. Crew was friendly."
Pros: "We had a safe flight."
Cons: "If we wanted to fly on an old American Airlines plane, we wouldn't have purchased a British Airways ticket. Deceiving and unfair."
