Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane was also dirty and I had to whipe down my own area"
Pros: "Unlike other AA planes, the plane that flew this particular route was at least updated with seat-back screens."
Cons: "Unfriendly service. A sandwich wrapped in plastic wrap is an absolutely horrible excuse for first class meal service."
Cons: "Social distancing"
Cons: "More sanitation efforts. Stop overselling flight to help stop the spread of COVID-19"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Pros: "Really friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "Entertainment and air hostess"
Cons: "American Airlines have to improve with their food. Spend more than 500 for ticket and they cannot provide lunch for > 5 hour flight? We had to buy that food as well. They also boarded us too soon and didn't have time to grab the food outside as our time between flight is only 50 mins."
Cons: "Everything was late, the flight, the logage pick up, the aproching to the station which means 30 minutes inside the plane parked waiting for a spot to get off, and finally The Price."
Pros: "Crew was super friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Affordable fares equate to such a small amount of space."
Pros: "Friendly crew all the way around"
Pros: "The crew was very nice. Everything was satisfactory"
Cons: "Would have been better if the flight attendant didn’t drop another passengers drink on me. They gave me nothing for being sorry."
Pros: "Nice big plane, new technology"
Cons: "When landing in LAX we were unloaded far from anything and loaded into buses and taken to the terminal. It was like a weird sci-fi movie LOL."
Pros: "Going my flight was delayed almost 4 hours and my connecting flight was canceled. Had to stay over night in the airport. I was able to book another flight and make it to my destination. But had to wait for the next flight to bring my baggage."
Cons: "Coming back my flight was good . I have no complaints."
Pros: "The boarding process was easy. Crew was friendly. In flight movie selection was great."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable and some passengers could have used a little deodorant."
Pros: "The plane was big and spacious."
Cons: "When we landed to lax, the crew should announce where our baggage claim is. It was different from what was texted, what was on the monitors. The location changed without announcement. After an hour, one agent said to go to another area to find my bag. 1 hr in baggage claim is excessive."
Pros: "The 787 is a nice aircraft"
Cons: "It should not take 2 hours from touchdown to the terminal. The flight arrived early but by the time the last passenger made it to the terminal, they probably missed their connection."
Pros: "Beautiful plane, new, very comfortable."
Cons: "Two hour delay in taking off."
Pros: "Wait staff we exceptional."
Cons: "Comfort for my legs considering on crutches could have used ability to prop my foot up"
Pros: "Crew was fine, nothing spectacular."
Cons: "Paid extra for exit row on A321 - scam for AA to charge extra for this row, there is no extra leg room"
Cons: "I've tried to respond twice now with a long detailed answer only to get booted out of the page. In short you and Flyus.com are criminals that ripped me off for over 430 dollars U.S. will never use you again"
Cons: "Flight attendant was not helpful and the border of rude"
Pros: "Pilot John going to DFW , awesome!!!!"
Cons: "All good !!"
Pros: "the plane was newer"
Cons: "the very long delay!!!"
Pros: "Smooth sailing"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment at all."
Pros: "The boarding was efficient. The service was fine. The pilot was informative."
Pros: "My flights were booked through British Airways, but these segments were operated by American. Dallas to LAX was on an Airbus 321. Entertainment options were very good (although not as diverse as on British Airways). Food was okay. The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Small Airbus models (319 and 321) have noisy engines and noisy hydraulics, and they create an annoying amount of white noise in the passenger cabin."
Pros: "Good flight. Arrived early. Great crew. A321 is a nice aircraft. Good legroom."
Pros: "Very comfortable. Each seat had its own monitor with lots of entertainment options."
Pros: "Overall good service."
Pros: "I liked the expediency of being rescheduled for another flight and the kindness of the American Airlines staff. When I first received my boarding pass, the pass listed gate A24 as the one where my flight was scheduled to depart. The plane destined to depart from Dallas to LAX did not show up. However, a few of us were kindly offered a cot and blankets to sleep on. The next morning I folded the cot and the blankets and found an American Airline staff member who swiftly rescheduled me for another flight to LAX. She did state that the original flight had departed at 11:15 p.m."
Cons: "From around 6 P.M., December 11, 2017, I was at gate A24 - the gate listed as the Departure gate for my return flight to Los Angeles. The last flight that left went to Saint Louis, I believe. There was never a flight to depart from Gate 24 to Los Angeles. I believe the gate may have been changed and for some reason, those who were at Gate 24 were not informed. Also, the travel instructions on the advertisement for scheduling the flight mentioned the ability to carry on luggage for no additional charge. When I received my boarding pass, it stated I was only allowed to carry on baggage that would fit underneath the seat and not in the overhead bin. I had to pay to check my baggage that I thought was free. In spite of the changes, the flight was a good flight. Thank you"
Pros: "I was able to sit with one of my family members. Nice leg room, great movies to wathch"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic."
Pros: "Thank god it was a short flight."
Cons: "Was given no preference to get though checkpoints when last flight landed an hour late. My seat was given away so they had to reseat me. The tv was broken and constantly needed to be reset."
Pros: "quick easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Pros: "Lost bag, came on later flight Totally disorganized TSA on Dallas very rude"
Pros: "We landed an hour early, which I have never experienced all the times flying into LAX. Entertainment had a bunch of new movies to kill the flight time."
Cons: "Airplane was very warm temperature wise. We landed super early, but had to wait almost 30 minutes for a gate to open."
Pros: "Flew a 787, so pretty new aircraft. That meant good seat-back entertainment system. Got to watch 2 complete movies - one before we got off the ground. Keep reading..."
Cons: "The flight boarded just fine. Then, about the time we should have been pushing back from the gate, a flight attendant comes on the PA asking for a licensed doctor. Several minutes later, they announce that there's a medical emergency and EMTs are on the way. Said EMT comes down the aisle with a wheelchair. I assume they took that passenger off the back, because they didn't come back by me. We finally leave the gate only to find that the weather we were supposed to get out ahead of had now rolled in, and we're stuck on the taxiway for an hour and a half. Once we finally got airborne, things went well. When we arrived at LAX, we parked in a remote area and had to bus to the terminal. So, while none of this was really anything American could have prevented, it made the flight more of an ordeal."
Pros: "The guy in the middle seat left and never came back. Smooth flight. Good crew. Got both pretzels and cookies, as well as 2 cups of ice, with no problem."
Cons: "Entertainment system had some quirks. I choose my flights in an attempt to make sure I can watch a movie during the flight, so that's important to me. This one stopped once in the middle of the movie, but worked one I started it again. Didn't have buttons for fast forward or rewind, so had to guess on the timeline when I wanted to see something I missed. Then the flight map kept resetting to a mode other than what I wanted. I know these are first world problems, and they in no way affected the safety of the flight, but I expect more."
Pros: "All of the crew was nice and helpful except for one."
Cons: "Although this isn't new info, but the exit row seats are garbage. They should remove a seat and make the remaining seats wider. When trying to use the arm rest table the Flight Attendant just watch me struggle and didn't help. So I just gave up."
Pros: "We made up time in the air and landed early. Seats were very comfortable."
Cons: "We landed early but had to wait a half hour to be able to get to an open gate. Then when arriving at the gate the jet bridge was unavailable so we waiting on the plan for an hour after touchdown. Then during my baggage claim pick up I found it open and spilling out into the bin and it was the first time I used this suitcase. Overall, I don't think it was the airlines fault but the airports fault at LAX, however all of these thing combined made it a less enjoyable flight/experience."
Pros: "Good seat back entertainment system. Plenty of movies I wanted to watch. Good to have an AC power outlet, too, to keep my phone charged."
Cons: "Charging more for some seats is a crappy business practice. Never enough room. Warmer than I'd like. Guy behind me kept stretching out his legs so much that he'd hit my feet unless I also stretched out."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth and quiet"
Cons: "The delay was to accommodate other passengers, but we sat in the airport for hours. AA's communication about the situation was poor, at best, the staff was tired and cranky, and there was no effort to make sure that we were not inconvenienced."
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "Lack of customer service for parents traveling with babies. Denied pre-board despite asking gate agent. Not kid-friendly."

Pros: "Price. Timeliness"
Cons: "No food or drink"

Cons: "Flight was delayed for up to 8 hours."
Cons: "Very like it !"
Cons: "I had a ticket counter employee tell me that I did not Vivint the ticket counter and lied to my face saying" sir you were never here" and implied that I had just arrived. That and the fact that 5 employees could not have a sense of urgency to take care of a short line of customers. People could've made their flights but missed them because of the incompetence of the ticket staff. I travel for a living and will NEVER use this airline again for myself or any member of our staff."
Pros: "Price was affordable."
Cons: "Had to pay for a carry on bag :("
Pros: "Frontier is by far the worse airline You have the believe you save but is more expensive than Delta AA or other airline You pay $35 per bag , you pay per the seat one seat next to each other same row isle seat one is $12 the other$17 you figure ??one of bags stay in GA now we have to deal with a lost bag"
Cons: "Don't fly Frontier it will cost you more $$$"
Pros: "cheap flight. really all there was to it. I got my plane ticket last min so I lucked out. was pissed that I was going to have to pay for a carryon so I check it instead. either way I saved money that way. from now on I would only fly frontier if I was doing a short distance. two hours or less, overnighters or long distance forget it. not worth going to a chiro after."
Cons: "seats dont recline, felt like I was flying in a C-130. then each time I boarded a flight back and to and from my destination. they were late. seats are very tiny was stuck next to larger people. not their fault but it sucked."
Cons: "All my schedule got changed and received luggage after 1 hour ..spoiled my day"

Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment."
Cons: "I don't like how you have to pay for Your first checked bag"
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, tight fit, snack options"
Cons: "Seats are very close together, I am 6' 3" so my knees are against the seat in front of me. Any drink or snack was very over priced. Charge for checked or carry on baggage is very high."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight in the last minute withiut even sending out an email. Some of the passengers even went to the gate and they said flight was cancelled then. It was ridiculous how frontier treated customers. I literally had to pay more than $500 for my one way flight with another airline. I will never fly with frontier ever again."

Pros: "comfortable seats, nice to get the window; crew was helpful"
Cons: "additional charge for carryon"
Pros: "The crew was fine. The aircraft was too. Felt safe."
Cons: "The airport employees for this airline was so rude, disrespectful, and not helpful (in Denver). The luggage fees are higher on this airline than other airlines. You're not notified of changes made until it's too late, if at all, causing you to have to pay a fee. It's like they want you to miss your flight, so that they can charge you more money! Very poor communication. They charge for EVERYTHING. I opted to let them choose my seat, so I didn't have to pay extra for that. Would rather pay more to be on an airline I actually like. Lesson learned. Perhaps they don't treat their employees very well? (Which is still no excuse). Or they know they won't have any consequences for mistreating customers? Don't know. But it's not worth it... their "cheap" ticket prices shoot up quickly. You might as well pay more for an airline you like, it'll be less expensive, and less stress..."
Pros: "The boarding and overall flight was really quick. The plane was really clean and comfortable for a 5hr flight."
Cons: "There wasn't a lot of complimentary options for snacks or drinks. All the other flights we took for this distance had some more options."
Pros: "Being a direct flight"

Pros: "No frills. Not comfortable at all. No leg room. The seats don't recline at all."
Cons: "It was a ride that's all"
Cons: "Seats did not recline. Everything but ice cost money and must use credit card. No entertainment. Charging for up grading seats in air made me feel like I was listening to barkers at a carnival."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 9 hours. Crew let us know they were not happy about having to take us to LAX. The token $100 does not help me at all. It would only help business travelers. The last time I flew before this was 7 years ago. An apology does not go very far. I will never fly Frontier again."
Cons: "An 8hr delay, for a small emergency light part. Missing a day of work."
Pros: "The cheap ticket. It left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Extra charges (carryon bags, snacks)"

Cons: "I had to cancel my trip altogether because the outgoing flight was delayed by six hours rendering part of the purpose of my trip futile"
Cons: "Charged for checked bag, carry-ons, and to select seats on the flight. Seats were uncomfortable and did not recline. Crew seemed like they wanted to be there less than we did and was poor at distributing water in the Sahara that was our cabin."
Pros: "For the money i spent to fly the only thing i had free was water. Wasn't used to flying with no complimentary snacks and to purchase items were a bit expensive.

Thanks for your service, but i will try not to use Frontier airline's"
Pros: "Flight was affordable"
Cons: "The seats were extremely uncomfortable and it cost $40 to check in a bag"

Cons: "We had to change gates last minute"
Cons: "You go into the computer to check your baggage and confirmation then you go to another line so they can give you your baggage tag then you go back to past the 1st area to give them your tagged luggage and then you stand in the security line zig zag 4 areas within a small place I hated it"
Pros: "Somewhat fast boarding."
