Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Not as crowded as the LAX to PHX"
Pros: "This was a prompt, well organized flight. In-flight entertainment on AA is always decent."
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Pros: "The flight crew was amazing. Super considerate and very fun to talk to/be around especially on my first flight."
Cons: "Honestly, nothing! The entertainment was not necessary for such short flights and were still available. The pretzels were... well... pretzels so no complaint there. Overall great flight"
Cons: "The flight was very good. The landing sounded rough with a lot of braking. Crew were really friendly. The food was expensive but fresh sandwich. Plane was beautiful. Lovely flight overall"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "They at least need to have TVs in aircraft. I felt United was better service wise and aircraft wise."
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."
Cons: "The man in the aisle seat was so obese he took room from the middle seat, which caused that person to lean into my seat. I spent three hours leaning to the right against the wall. If the airlines are going to make the seats smaller, they need to make arrangements for people who don’t fit in the seats. Entertainment didn’t work."
Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."
Pros: "Smooth ride, good service."
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Pros: "Flight to Philadelphia was on time"
Cons: "Coach shared with American Airlines. Service not nearly as good as British Airways. Changed our connecting flight back to SFO without notice. Was a big hassle for us trying to get on an earlier flight which was the original time we booked initially"
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Pros: "Did not even have food for sale was given a cookie for 4 hour flight and food services at airport was closed so this was pathetic and miserable finally three immigration officers for 4 international flights so we waited for 2 hours"
Cons: "The whole trip was miserable..., flight attendant and pilot were the only nice thing about this trip"
Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Pros: "On time, crew was helpful and kind, entertainment options were vast."
Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Very smooth trip from beginning to end."
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Free snacks provided on plane."
Pros: "On time and very professional"
Cons: "The snack had coffee in it."
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I enjoyed the Gps chart showing the flight data from takeoff to landing."
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
Cons: "Overcharged, problem with res (caused by AA) caused me to line up to check in. Had to pay for checked bags which I still don't get. Boarding was a cattle market and guess what they ran out of overhead space so they gate checked bags free of charge. . Rest of flight unimpressive. I try to avoid AA but they had the only direct flight to my destination. sometimes a connection is preferable"
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "Staff was honest. Pilot and ground representative kept us updated."
Cons: "Delay while we waited for a crew from Denver and nobody cleaned the plane while they waited. Instead the crew arrives quite late to find a dirty plane. While the plane was being cleaned our Co-pilot was reassigned. We waited on the plane while they scouted up a different co-pilot. This caused another delay. Staff did the best they could but the organizational incompetence was not lost on the passengers."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me ＄50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Flight was smooth and landing was good"
Cons: "Having to pay for luggage under the plane. I booked my flight 3 months in advance to sit with my wife and we got switched, fortunately I asked the man next to her to trade me seats. I ve flown to Managua about 7 or 8 times with American Airlines and this was my least favorite flight. People take up the space in the overhead compartments above my seat almost all the time then there is no space for mine."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and uneventful, but late."
Cons: "no good glutenfree options. How about a Turkey Sandwich on multigrain gf bread? Or a wrap made with corn tortillas? Toasted almonds instead of only pretzles. Or a coconut macaroon instead of a cookie made with wheat."
Pros: "We did get onto another flight that morning in the exit row."
Cons: "I didn't receive an email to check into my flight for Alaskian airline/American Airlines, and when I tried to check in online from my confirmed ticket order the website wouldn't let me check in. When searching where to go at dallas ft.worth (DFW) airport to check in for our alaskian airlines flight the website sold us to go to terminal E 18 where they are, but when we arrived we were in fact flying out of a completely different terminal A, not having enough time to check our bags and missing the flight."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."
Cons: "It's getting progressively pricier with all kinds of added fees and the seats and spaces smaller. It's rediculous..."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Pros: "Staff was professional and friendly."
Pros: "I love the stewartesssssss"
Cons: "The dudes cause they prolly gay"
Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."
Pros: "Everything was convenient everybody was nice got the seating that I asked for"
Cons: "Layover was long"
Pros: "The attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Why are you asking about entertainment? There is none. There were a few TV screens scattered about showing something, but no headphones were offered at all, and it appeared the entertainment, which was very hard to see, was NBC TV shows. The quality of air travel has plummetted over the last 10 years."
Pros: "The chairs where comfortable and there was a free movie"
Cons: "The sound for the movie didn't work, the atenders dI'd not do any thing tI make uo for it. There was no complimentary snack. Loading on was a mess, not organized well."
Pros: "Comfortable newer plane More overhead cargo room"
Cons: "Not enough time between groups - people standing around blocked terminal Extremely full flight"
Pros: "Free snack and drink"
Cons: "Complicated check in process for basic economy. Sat on tarmac for 30 min for gate to open up. Crew was not knowledgeable. No food, no WiFi."

Cons: "Roomier seats"
Pros: "Good job"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow"
Cons: "Bigger seats and food service"
Pros: "Worst experience I’ve ever had traveling and I travel a lot. United needs some better works and to compensate for my 14 hours of sitting in the airport for no reason."
Cons: "Everything that happened was completely shitty...."
Cons: "Seat was insanely small"
Pros: "Great crew. Clean cabin. United App easy and free entertainment"
Cons: "Cramped seats - no leg room (unless you want to pay much more). I'm 5'10 on a good day, so I don't know how someone 6'+ can sit in the back 2/3 of the plane."
Pros: "Outstanding that United Airlines finally has allowed for complimentary use of built-in entertainment system; i.e. Direct TV without charging passengers. That is good business sense - congratulations on a good PR decision. Haven't complimented UA in long time, but this is about time to say "thanks!""
Pros: "crew was SO pleasant! respectful of sleeping passengers came around with snacks and drinks then came around a bit later with coffee and water in case anyone needed a refill or missed it the first time"
Cons: "Never enough food selections"
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "United Arlines has a lot of room to improve. It’s clearly just in it to make money and doesn’t care about the individual customer"
Cons: "Pilot need to improve on communication skill, use better judgement when storm or other situations arise don't boarded the plane and let customers. Wait for 2hrs then turn back to the gate, I don't know what are the protocol, but letting cust. waiting in the plane on the tarmac for 2hrs that's unacceptable. Thank you"
Pros: "I had window seat"
Pros: "This was the final leg of our Toronto to Orange County trip. It was 1 ½ hours. We got on fast and took off on time. I slept through most of it..."
Cons: "As we have learned, airlines, like banks, have figured out how to make more money (even though fuel prices have dropped) fees, fees and more fees and less, less, less services..."
Pros: "Landed safely"
Cons: "Delayed 4 hours. Moved gates 3X's to a different terminal twice. Landed at different airport with a 1hr bus ride. Nothing good. No compecompensation. Booooo."
Cons: "Extra for carry on extra for movie,extra to eat,cramped sitting for 4 hours,earphone jack broken,screen control broken,keep paying more for less,sucked"
Pros: "The layover in Denver worked out perfectly - no long wait. The United entertainment availability. Friendliness of crew. On-time flight."
Cons: "The leg room. Small size of complimentary snacks. No screens for United entertainment so you had to use cell phone, but this eats battery and no power in our zone"
Cons: "Couldn't make"
Pros: "Quick, smooth"
Pros: "No problem at all with my ticket"
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and accomodating. What a great experience!!"
Pros: "Eventually got home safe and sound."

Cons: "Delayed take off, cramped seating, predatory fees, ...what else could go wrong?"

Pros: "I ALWAYS LOVE THE SMILING FACES OF THE CREW"
Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT"
Pros: "Clean new airplane. pleasant staff. On time."
Cons: "United charges 8 bucks for you to just see where you are now. Worse yet, the entertainment system loops with sound off even if you dont choose it. Taunting you to "just swipe" so you can join the club. I HATE this experience and feel the airline has made a very bad call. I'm sure some bean counter is looking at the "swipes" as proof of his brilliance. but i will pay more to fly on other airlines after this...so screw you guys."
