Liked nothing. Flight delayed an hour departing. Screwed up my flight schedule for rest of the day! Had to rebook to American Airlines! Then my bag never got to my final destination! God only knows where it is!

Liked nothing. Flight delayed an hour departing. Screwed up my flight schedule for rest of the day! Had to rebook to American Airlines! Then my bag never got to my final destination! God only knows where it is!

My first time flying Alaska air I have to tell it was a good flight , no tv is the downfall but if you have a phone or laptop/ tablet you should able to see movies

On time. Following Covid-19 guidelines. Nice to get a cup of coffee on those early flights. Enjoyed the staff.

The seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable. The A/C didn't work and the crew didn't care. There was no in-flight entertainment. It's a must-have for a direct Seattle to Dulles flight.

Cons: "You changed the times of my flights almost weekely. Not what I signed up for"

Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

One of the best flights I ever been on a know it was two super friendly stewardess one by the name of Jessica that was super nice we’re really Like to get the chance to thank her personally for her hospitality and friendliness as I was first class first seat from Portland to New York on 01/01/2022 catch in my connection fight four and a family emergency she made me feel really good about everything it was an long 6 hr flight

Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

El servicio a bordo excelente, Pablo una gran persona, pero el atraso en la salida fue demasiado

Outdated media

Cons: "They delayed the flight because of a mechanical issue now I have layover for 12 hours"
Cons: "Too long to get “maintenance sign off”"
Pros: "One stewardess was pretty rude and impatient. Other staff excellent"
Cons: "Stewardess should speak slower, enunciate and smile."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "The TV reception was terrible There were 3 cats on the plane and I have a terrible allergy to cats. Miserable 2+ hours"
Pros: "Very friendly crew and the plane arrived in Costa Rica 30 mins early!"
Cons: "I have a JetBlue credit card and I’m very disappointed that membership to the credit card does not offer priority boarding or zone A or zone B boarding. I was in seat 6C and had boarding zone E! Every other airline sponsored credit card I own offers some form of priority zone seating; even Spirit!"
Cons: "I never went on this trip. Why are you asking me to rate it??"
Pros: "Easy flight left and arrived early even!"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, on-boarding was easy and fast, everything was clean, and there were nice touches like a sleep mask and ear plugs on every seat."
Cons: "The leg room was better than in other flights, but that's not saying much and the seats were very uncomfortable and for such a long flight, it was deeply uncomfortable overall. My knee joints still hurt two days later."
Pros: "Not much other than an easy boarding."
Cons: "I want to complain about my experience on your Flight #1206 from PDX to JFX the plane is severely outdated. It doesn’t even look like a JetBlue plane. My tv doesn’t work as did a few others on board. We were told by the steward they were already reset and they just don’t work. That’s really unacceptable and a-shame. I could of flown whatever airline if I wanted to be uncomfortable for a 5 hour flight. I’m very disappointed with this. I have tried to go through your website to voice the issue but conveniently it doesn’t process after I fill out the required information. Your Twitter help team offered me $15 credit for my inconvenience wow what a way to help a customer what’s that not even a checked bag on one of your flights. What a joke. Very unhappy and I fly JetBlue often. Sad."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great service"
Pros: "Focus on customer service, spacious and comfortable seating, courtesy with respect to my disability, and general availability of Wi-Fi without charge."
Cons: "Where I am on a long business trip, I did not appreciate being charged $150, above the $30 baggage fee, due to being 8 pounds overweight with my luggage."
Pros: "Light snacks and water bottles for free were nice. They kept it dark for most of our overnight flight. Flight attendants were helpful and competent."
Cons: "My tv would not turn off. Had to cover it so I could sleep."
Pros: "Effecient! Nice plane. Great flight and ground crew"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment did not work."
Pros: "Plane loaded a few minutes late, but efficiently on the return leg. Flight Attendants were courteous, and attentive on both. Did those of you who don't know how to turn the TV off, lower the 'Brightness' to zero."
Pros: "The seat had a bit more cushion/comfort than the non-JetBlue flight I took recently, although overall comfort minimal in economy. Staff were friendly and efficient. I took a red-eye flight and the complimentary eye masks and ear plugs were a nice touch."
Cons: "My tv screen and the channel buttons and volume were glitchy but I didn't ask about fixing them. I did miss the phone charging port that is available on other airlines."
Pros: "It was a joy"
Pros: "Roomy seats, good snacks, great crew!"
Cons: "Bumpy ride"
Pros: "Free wifi"
Cons: "Flight was late; incoming aircraft was running late all day. Upon landing, there was no gate available. Plane got uncomfortably warm while waiting for one."

Cons: "The TV's were not working properly. Could not view the World Cup match between Brazil and Mexico."
Pros: "Staff was very courteous, plane was very clean and looked nice. Lots of room in the seats. Boarding was very fast - I got there and went straight on."
Cons: "There was somewhat of a delay on the ground before we took off. It would have been nice to have some more substantial food available, like meals. Also, my neck wasn't comfortable when trying to sleep so I could have used a pillow and it would have been more comfortable in a window seat."
Pros: "The comfort space from the seats"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I appreciate the commitment to safety but it seemed odd that the entire plane was help up for almost an hour to add a quart of oil to one engine. Otherwise an excellent first experience with Jet Blue. We will be back."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "The second half of the flight the TVs didn’t work till halfway through the flight."
Cons: "I received a text when leaving about a 2 hour flight delay with an estimated arrival time ( when the plane would be to the airport before departure. When going home, I received a similar text with a delay warning and a new arrival time. It was the arrival time at the destination airport not the travel airport and I arrived 30 minutes after the flight had left and had to scramble to find a flight a different airline because Jet Blue had no one there and nothing leaving for over 24 hours and that was to NY not Ca. I can say I will not fly Jet Blue again nor use a booking service again, I will take my chances on my own!"
Pros: "Staff on the flight was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Late departure from Portland created a late arrival in New York- the gate door was closed when I got there. Scheduling connections as tight as you did came very close to leaving me in New York. Jet blue staff in Portland was less than helpful when I expressed my connection concerns ( wanting to rebook to a latter connection before I left Portland). Stop treating people like chattel"
Pros: "Loved the free WiFi but signal wasn’t very strong"
Pros: "The system was down at my seat. No wifi"
Pros: "Free wifi and comfortable seats"
Pros: "JetBlue flights continue to be both comfortable and relaxing. Your upbeat crew are the best."

Cons: "The TVs did not work for the entire flight."
Pros: "The fact that the flight was short"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "I loved everything about this flight"
Pros: "Half the passengers were sleeping in rows to themselves. I’m 6’5” with a bad back and was stuck in an aisle seat, unable to even rest much less sleep. I get that those seats were available for purchase, but after the doors close it seems ridiculous to not let a customer sit there, ESPECIALLY is taller folks!!!! One could make the argument that it’s less safe as well, seeing how there’s no one IN the exit row to help open the window in the event of an emergency. I like Jetblue but this policy is likely to keep me from flying them if I can fly for just a bit more $ and have comfort."
Cons: "Heartless rule, give the flight attendants power to make customers happy...healthy!"
Pros: "Quick and prompt service at check in. The flight pulled out of the gate on time as well."
Pros: "The attention and the time was great and thanks Kayak for all the help booking my ticket. Walter"
Pros: "Easy on, easy off. I've been flying JetBlue for years, never had a "bad" experience. Reliable NY-based airline with a good network."
Cons: "Seats don't have power, limited food options. Entertainment hasn't been updated in years. Newer aircraft have newer amenities, but upgrades have been slow on the older planes."
Cons: "my seat was dirty when I arrived and I had to clean food off of it."
Pros: "Groundstaff at check in were very good. Quick and professional. Legroom was better than average without paying extra. Staff were very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The system wouldn't let me check in online. I rang JetBlue,very unhelpful, they could find no record even though I gave them confirmation and flight details. They said try checking in with American airlines as the second leg of journey was with them,no good there either."
Pros: "Reliable, comfortable, excellent crew"
Cons: "Like all commercial airlines, you have to pay for any little extra. While Jetblue has better legroom space, exit rows now cost extra for long legged people like myself. But overall, a good experience. seamless."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "More leg room than most, friendly staff"
Cons: "After fully boarding, we sat at the gate for over an hour due to paperwork. Nearly half an hour after the scheduled departure time, I got an email alerting me to the delay saying I should still 'arrive on time.'"
Pros: "flying schedule was on time"

The flight staff were polite, seats were comfortable, and we reached our destinations on time. This was my first time traveling first class since the pandemic. The difference in service was dramatic and made me seriously regret having paid three times more for a first class ticket. Specifically No Sky Cap lounge - One of the main reasons I traveled first class was to use the Sky Cap lounge since we were going to have to wait for our flight for several hours at PDX. PDX Sky Cap would not allow us to enter as first class passengers. The receptionist said we needed to have their American Express Card. Further the Las Vegas Sky Cap lounge is permanently closed. Food - Our first flight was early in the morning, so I thought no need to grab breakfast in the airport, I'm traveling first class. The only food we were served or offered between LAS and PDX was Biscoff cookies. Our return trip was the same. Seems the days of being served a hot meal in first class are long gone.

Offer better food options . Even if for purchase

Great

Wasn't a very good selection of entertainment. The chairs were a bit uncomfortable.

Cons: "Seats were narrow and I’m not a big guy. 6’0”. 185."
Pros: "They got me an air sick bag since there were none in the pockets. Bathroom was very clean. Chair had bendy headrests. Didn’t have to check my bag."
Cons: "Very turbulent, seat did not stay reclined. On a redeye flight, this was the key misery-maker. Seat in front was reclined so no possible position to sleep from the middle seat, even for a short person."
Pros: "The crew was awesome. The entertainment was great with a huge selection of movies. The food was really good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed while waiting for Delta agents to come and assist people off of the plane."
Pros: "In flight service was fast and well organized. The dinner was very good. Flight was turbulent free and no isues."
Cons: "The plane was at the gate but it took over an hour for international inspection and a long time for the plane to be cleaned."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Hot in the plane and the landing was uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seats did NOT recline, which seems to be a pretty poor planning for a red eye flight."
Cons: "Comfort"

Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Cons: "Being on time"
Pros: "The pilot, Mr. Howes, I believe, came out and personally thanked everyone for flying Delta. It was a nice touch to see the actual pilot that was flying and me home and that he shared his gratitude. Go DELTA!!"
Pros: "The crew members were excellent and efficient. Europe was fabulous."
Cons: "9+ hours in the air is never fun when you're in economy class: humans have gotten bigger as airline seats grow smaller."
Pros: "I was moved to an end Seat, as I was in constant leg pain."
Cons: "I was zitting against my Neighbor as the Seats are so narrow."
Pros: "Flight was quiet and comfortable."
Cons: "Felt claustrophobic after a while because guy in seat next to me was rather large and spilling into my seat"
Pros: "Movies selection were good, snacks were pretty good"
Cons: "Why make someone pay for an upgraded seat that doesn’t recline? Terrible. Also delayed the flight by an hour, no explanation, and no idea if connections would be made or not. Had to run to my connection and they almost didn’t let me on. Smh"
Pros: "Delta worked with us on rebooking a flight after we messed up. Onboard the staff was incredibly friendly and the free snack selection was decent (even gluten free treats). Boarding was an orderly process."
Pros: "The entertainment was really good and the service was excellent. Flight attendants were great. Enjoyed my complimentary beverage and on time departure and arrival."
Cons: "It was hard to understand what zone was boarding. Hard to hear and understand made It impossible. And the plane seemed smaller, seats were very close to one another, and it was difficult to get comfortable. I'm not big either."
Pros: "On time, free beer , good price"
Cons: "No movie, no charging telephone"
Cons: "I will make it my sole purpose to let everyone I know and review this on every site. Kayak messed up our flights so badly and then would not fix them. I spent 4 hours being bounced between airlines and travel sites just to be screwed with for a mistake Kayak made and would not fix. Worst company ever!"
Pros: "ATL based crew was great. Exit row extra room as promised"
Cons: "Cheese snack purchased was not up to par. Grapes soft, almonds mealy and cheese dried out. Disappointing. New faster Wi-Fi was intermittent at best. Down for long stretches."

Pros: "Friendliness of the staff"
Cons: "No complaints. I wish that the updates on the flight delay were a little clearer, but that's about it."
Pros: "Getting to the correct destination."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seating has gotten WAY too tight. Will not do that again ... discomfort, inability to even stretch a little bit caused painful nerve flare?"
Pros: "Smooth flight; informative crew"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Pros: "Delta has a good business product. The entertainment system was good. The food was good."
Cons: "The business class crew struck me as distracted and putout to be there."
Cons: "Snacks if possible"
Cons: "I chose my seats when I purchased tickets thru Expedia. Then for some reason Delta wouldn't allow me to keep my seats and I had to have them assigned at boarding. Why? What causes this? I was stuck in the back of the small jet from Minneapolis to Cwa when there were a few open seats in the middle. Disappointed. I won't be choosing Delta in the future!"
Pros: "Long flight but smooth despite delays"
Cons: "Delayed by 2.5 hours."
Pros: "When flying using the big carriers, Delta is becoming our go to airline for timeliness and comfort."
Pros: "The ground staff at check in was excellent. She was extremely helpful. The flight was on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a scramble. The amount of hand luggage people were allowed to bring on board was excessive and the overheads were crammed full."
Pros: "Nice plane. Comfort seats were nice."
Cons: "Extremely slow boarding."

All went well thank you

Pros: "On time and good flight"
Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past. I had to have someone purchase a ticket last min out of costa Rica so I could check in. When I got to CR they didn't even ask me for my ticket or proof"

Pros: "Excellent!!!"
Cons: "Very good"
Pros: "Take off on time"
Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Changed gates at Panama without any alert until boarding time."

Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "No air conditioning, small gates, too crowded."
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "No vegetarian options granted :( the planes are dirty."
Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"
Pros: "Super nice crew! Gave us food even though it was a 50 min flight."
Cons: "The crew kept bumping Into me since I had an isle seat more than normally."

Pros: "Gate agents are superb"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "La tripulación tenía tan buen actitud! Todos eran muy amable. The crew had a very friendly attitude. All were very kind!"
Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"
Cons: "---"

Short flight

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Check in was hard and slow for American Airlines. However the flight was fine.

I dreaded the flight. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the passengers and employees were. After watching the news I expected bedlam and rude people. Everyone everywhere wore masks without hesitation. There were no problems.

This was not a direct route, so it took longer than it should. Connecting in Minneapolis or Chicago would have made better sense than Dallas.

Extremely late

Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."
Pros: "Very accommodating crew as we were traveling with my elderly grandmother."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Decaf tea"

Cons: "Being on time."
Pros: "amazing seat and awesome crew couldn't ask for more"
Pros: "Arrived early with great service which is most important when flying."
Cons: "Entertainment was not on par with competitors like Delta, especially on a long flight. Movies depended on downloading the gogo app before you boarded which most were not aware of until we were airborne."
Cons: "My luggage was delayed. I received it the day after"
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"

Pros: "0ntime quick boarding"

Cons: "The flight crew from PDX to CLT were not very customer service friendly. I was quite underimpressed."
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Bathroom door still has ashtray. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Pros: "On time departure, this flight tends to get delayed, not this time. Good service and pleasant flight."
Cons: "I prefer personal entertainment systems."
Pros: "Crew is very nice, we were on time and baggage didn't get lost for once."
Cons: "Seats are simply too tight, not enough space for carry-on, and boarding procedures are a joke."
Pros: "The crew was nice and so was the American Airlines customer service office in Phoenix"
Cons: "I didn’t like the male and female check in people in Portland. They sat there and watched me for an hour not telling me I could not use cash to check in my luggage at the gate after they told me it was double the amount to check it in at the gate. The sight u use on the boarding pass u download on the phone is not clear. It says baggage fee +$25.00. I thought it was 25.00 till the women in Phoenix showed me the + sign. She said “it is confusing”. I did not buy the ticket because it was for an unexpected funeral of my sister. My other sister did so I didn’t see all the stuff from Travelocity. After telling me it would be $50.00 the check in male and female at the gate saw me sitting there for an hour and never told me I couldn’t pay cash. By the time it was boarding time if a nice woman did not offer to use her credit card and I have her the $50 cash I would have missed my flight. The manager at the gate in Portland even told me I would miss my flight. The two check in staff at the gate said “well we didn’t know you only had cash” and they weren’t even concerned that I was going to miss my flight. It would of been nice of them to tell me this when I sat there for an hour after they told me They we’re doubling the price. I would of had time to go back through security, only pay $25.00 and the other nice passenger would have not had to use her credit card. Very rude and poor service especially after a sad occasion of burying your sister!"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "Flights from PDX to BOS cancelled. Rerouted to PHX. All flights out of BOS, DC, Philly cancelled. I missed my Habitat for Humanity trip, not getting any refunds on flights or hotels. Out thousands and no one is helping me."
Pros: "A nice uneventful trip"
Cons: "Seats smaller than before."
Pros: "Nice flight once we finally boarded!"
Cons: "Flight was late causing me to run for my connecting international flight in LAX."
Pros: "I liked the inflight entertainment."
Cons: "The flight attendants going down the middle aisle and bumping me as I had an aisle seat."
Pros: "the clerk at the boarding desk was kind"
Cons: "delayed"
Pros: "Ticket agents at all airports were helpful and very considerate."
Cons: "We were not able to print our boarding passes the day before as expected per the website and purchase docs for the tickets, despite providing passport numbers (several times) and Global Entry registrations. Had to go to a ticket desk at first departure and third departure points to have them printed, with no explanations given. Also not allowed to choose our seats for the third leg. Food was barely edible. Paid extra for roomier seats on one leg, making it more comfortable, but were extremely tight on another leg which had many empty seats scattered throughout the cabin. Cabin attendants seemed more interested in pushing items that generated revenue than providing the ones that came with the ticket (which is never cheap to begin with)."
Cons: "Due to mechanical issues our 8am flight kept getting delayed in 30 minute increments until around 9:45 when the front desk attendants told us the necessary part had to be driven from Seattle and wouldn't be available until noon, and that their was no certainty the part would work, and that we should make other arrangements. So we did, but their earliest we could get us into Chicago was 9:30pm (original arrival was 2pm). We booked the arrangements only to find out that our original flight took off at 10:55 and American didn't even attempt to contact us. The cherry on top was that our flight (which was indirect through SFO) got delayed and we're now going to miss our connection in SFO. So currently looking at 10:30pm arrival in Chicago."
Pros: "."
Pros: "Timeliness"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Entertainment and great beverage options"
Pros: "The switch up w amaerican air Can't find flight for check in no one is on the phone over night. Finally figured out the prob. Did like amer air And all the shuttling. Chaos"
Cons: "I used to fly with American Airlines a lot more and every time the staff somehow finds a way to be rude and ruin my day so I try to avoid this airline. On this particular flight it was the very rude asian flight attendant that really set the mood. The attitude of the staff really makes or breaks the experience and it seems like American Airlines doesnt care about the quality of thier employees"
Pros: "Pretty comfortable"
Pros: "I like that they had a TV show showing at no extra cost"
Cons: "The seats were so uncomfortable, I've been on planes before but after an hours I couldn't get comfortable at all."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ticket agent would not let me pay for up grade was first flight for me to fly with my wife she sat in first class while I was at the back of the plane!! And there was a seat available for me in first class he just wouldn't let me have it I would not recommend American to any one"
Pros: "The in flight attendants were very helpful. They never got upset with anyone when I got walked passed my seat while boarding and had traffic backed up while boarding.Such a pleasant flight. I would rather fly American Airlines than spirit, United."
Cons: "The only thing I can say I didn't like was the vents did not blow the air condition hard enough. .."
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
