When I opened it to view the itinerary it showed she had been booked for the am fight at 6:30 am! after spending another hour and 35 minutes on the phone your support team could not find a fight until Dec.21!! Not to mention the accepted they had problems with their email system and phones, but asked why didn't I called,mmm I was on the phone for the 3rd time!!!! I am very, very disappointed!! Not a discount was offer or a fight the next day even when I was checking an flights were available!!! Here is the other part,,Rosa came all the way from Mexico to care for her ill sister for the last 2 1/2 months, all she asked was to be able to be back home for the holidays!!

Pros: "Good service."
Cons: "No power outlets."
Cons: "Overseas flight and the seats were so tiny. I literally have bruises on my legs on the sides and on my knees from being crammed into the seat in front of me. I'm 73" tall and I couldn't even lower my tray all the way to set food and drink on it."

Cons: "American flight attendant service"
Pros: "There’s nothing better than a non-stop."
Cons: "Oy, they offered an $800 credit if I let them bump me. But they had no way to get me to my destination! I guess instead of asking for volunteers, they should have asked for people who really didn’t want to go. Then the flight attendant announced, “we’re really low on food”. Really? This is a SEVEN hour flight!"
Cons: "The aircraft was hot. Barely any A/C. It felt like 78 degrees. Uncomfortably hot."
Cons: "a little delay in the departure connection flight ."
Cons: "Delayed boarding that caused us to miss our next flight."
Pros: "Bridget was managing the cancellation lines with finesse, compassion, and urgency. She was a star! The rebooked flight was fast, comfortable, and landed early."
Cons: "Previous flight was canceled and forced us to stay in DC an extra day. Watched flights continue to arrive and depart from our hotel room. Rebooked using the mobile app but could not check in on mobile or at the kiosk. Waited in line for almost 2 hours for AA to simply check us in and print passes. The flight did not get catering refreshed after landing in DC so no refreshments or snacks were offered during the flight home."
Cons: "Unexplained delay, more than 4 hours. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time & staff were pleasant & effective"
Pros: "The handed out the customs forms just before landing because they were too busy chatting. I had to fill up the form during landing and got dizzy. During the fligh I asked for water and the stewardess forgot about it."

Pros: "American Airlines has alot more commodities than most"
Cons: "Alaska sold passengers to American"
Pros: "Good space on first."
Cons: "The boarding process is not organized, even if you're flying first you have to "elbow" your way in. The headphones or the connection are wrong the noise coming of it is terrible, couldn't watch a single movie. Unusable. Tried moving it around and changing for another unsuccessfully."
Cons: "Leg room - i feel like it's the smallest of any carrier worldwide."
Cons: "Fast boarding on coach."
Cons: "no entertainment! Nothing. On the flight from Mex City to LAX the bathroom facilities were so limited that some Economy class passengers had to try to use the business class or first class facilities' An FA then came on the intercom and said Economy class must only use their own facilities and this is according to an FAA regulation. THat is a straight out lie. If you eliminate bathrooms from Economy class to squeeze in more seats this problem will persist. American Airlines should be ashamed of itself."
Pros: "The only thing I liked was how polite and helpful the staff was at the airport."
Cons: "The flight attendants both seemed unhappy and we're not very polite. They hardly came through the cabin at all. It took a while to get anything. They mostly just stayed in the back talking to each other. The pilot didn't greet us. Just stood there when we walked in. And there was a kid screaming for most of the trip. My seat was broken and wouldn't recline. This was my first trip flying, and on the trip to Miami I flew with Delta. The service with them was tremendously better. I was really disappointed."
Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew allowed us to move to open row of seats"
Cons: "It seemed that asking for extra service was an imposition on the 'gossip session' for the crew standard fare of biscuits"
Pros: "The crew, boarding went smooth"
Cons: "The seats too close ,I drop one paper I could hardly bend over I am 5ft tall"
Cons: "The automatic machines wouldn't check me in. The lazy who checked me in manually have me wrong information about my luggage. The affect on the Mexico side have me MORE wrong information about my luggage. Ultimately, my luggage was lost. Still waiting for them to find it."
Pros: "Actual travel was OK. I arrived as per any flight"
Cons: "Baggage policy on my fare rate. Ended up spending about $300 to check a carryon. (proper size and weight) I knew it was not included in the fare, but assumed that I could check it or carryon for a *reasonable* fee. Checkin personnel not sympathetic despite travel being forced by coronavirus eviction. Great fare turned into an expensive full fare."
Cons: "The crew and the people do the tickets are very rude"
Pros: "A pleasant trip without issues"
Cons: "I will never arrive to this airport again. It’s too difficult to go to manhattan (especially on Sunday) it’s not worthy to save a few bucks to spend more than one hour in the taxi"

Pros: "Everything was on time and on schedule."
Cons: "No food."
Cons: "Out flight was supposed to leave by 11:10 PM. United kept delaying the flight until 2 AM when they announced they flight was delayed to 8AM the following morning. At that point we had to stand for 1.5 hours in line in customer service with no information as to why this had happened. By the time we were with customer service it was too late to go to a hotel to sleep, so we had to sleep in the floor of the airport. The flight boarded to leave by 8 AM but we were again delayed in the runway 2 more hours. The last explanation the gave us was that the copilot never showed up. I do not recommend flying with United Airlines."

Cons: "Missing it."
Pros: "On the departure as well as an early arrival to my destination."
Cons: "I kept getting bumped into by flight crew ever though I was clear from the aisle, and they would constantly be walking up and down.

Overhead compartment adjacent to me kept opening, thankfully, it didn't cause an accident."
Pros: "It was great!"

Cons: "The entretainment was not working"
Cons: "1hr late to board because of a missing flight attendant. They could not get replacement for an hour."
Pros: "Free movies/entertainment"
Cons: "No selection of beer or liquor or food. OK - A flight to MEXICO and you have no mexican beer, tequila, or anything even remotely resembling Mexican drinks yet you boast all the routes you serve to mexico. It was nearly a four hour flight. C'mon"
Pros: "It was a direct flight"
Cons: "Even though I checked in early I was not assigned a seat. I had to wait to see if people didn't show up to claim a seat. For a red eye it is difficult to notify family if you don't get on the flight because most likely they will be getting up early to pick you up at the airport. Luckily I got on the flight but the stress of waiting was tough. I was treated just as if I was on standby yet I purchased my flight ahead of time."
Cons: "I did not like that our flight was delayed three hours. I understand there was a thunderstorm but it has resolved before we were to board the plane. Then we had to switch gates three times."
Pros: "At the gate, I asked about chaining our seats since they were in the extreme back of the plane. The gate attendant gave us some great economy plus seats for free. I wish I would have remembered his name. But Thank You!!!"
Cons: "It's still a long flight from San Francisco to Mexico City but it's just on the cusp on not getting any freebies, i.e. food, premium drinks. This was kind of a let down but I got over it."
Pros: "I didnt like it at all"
Cons: "That ac was always wrong so temperature never refreshed. That made impossible to enjoy this trip at all."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice and welcoming. I had enough space in the plane to feel comfortable."
