I don't mind cooperating when these things happen, but it's extremely frustrating when they happen completely unnecessarily."

Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "It was cramped; it wasn’t overcrowded."
Cons: "You were out of earphones"
Pros: "We were allowed to board early with my father, who is disabled."
Cons: "Denver airport was a nightmare with my disabled father. We were given a “wheelchair” but no escort through a nightmarish security scene.

Cons: "Delay due to equipment failure, were not able to estimate delay"
Cons: "Such tiny seats."

Pros: "Wi fi did not work."
Pros: "They were on time"
Cons: "The A321 had the most cramped seating I've ever experienced. The video in the seat back didn't work properly going or coming back. Boarding was slow. I don't know why they don't load the rear seats first so you don't have to wait for everyone ahead to secure their carry-on luggage. If they didn't charge so much for checking a bag there wouldn't be so much carry-on baggage"
Pros: "No surveys"
Cons: "No surveys"
Pros: "The Denver airport is beautiful"
Cons: "I will never fly AA again - see below"

Cons: "Short flight everything was fine"
