Pros: "Nothing. Have not flown American airlines for the past 15 yrs because they always managed to have mechanical problems, delays, etc. Flew with then for the first time since, and again, mechanical problems.

Cons: "The entertainment might have been good, but the touch screen system was extremely cumbersome andf it was hard to get a good overview about what was available and then when one thought one had chosen something, something else started to play. I tried to listen to classical music, but the cabin music was louder,"
Pros: "The replacement crew and ground attendants get thumbs up for trying their best to help."

Cons: "I had a 2 hour layover to switch from my BA flight to my American Airlines flight in Heathrow, but since I, and every other AA passenger had to wait in line to reprint my boarding pass to an AA boarding pass after we had taken the bus to the terminal, I waited about 45 minutes in that line. Then we had to go through security again. By the time I made it to my gate the flight said it was "closing." We took off about 15 minutes after that. The "hot box" snack had goat cheese and I'm not a fan."
Cons: "3.5 hours late out of Columbus, minimal if any communication by gate agents, 45 minutes wait for gate in PHL, 15 minutes at gate to get jet bridge to plane."

Cons: "Very cheap on the snacks and beverages for a 5 hour trip. Boarding was out of order and slow getting both on and off."
Cons: "Very hard seat"
Cons: "Taking away headphones 40 mins prior to landing is ridiculous. AA needs to abandon Bose or figure out a better way."

Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"
Pros: "Flight was on time, seats were comfortable."
Pros: "I was in a seat in coach that was appalling. (28C?), one row behind the exit row seating. I am only 5' 8" but could not cross my legs. The guy to my left was KNITTING, so was constantly jogging my arm which I carefully had kept inside the armrest on my side. I will avoid flying in a BA 747 in future. Even Business is awful on those jets. I flew in Business once, and thought the head to tail layout was the worst I have experienced. I pulled down the joint divider and thought the person in the next bed was dead, he was lying there with his arms crossed over his chest! It's time to update the 747's or retire them."
Cons: "The pathetic little 4.5" times 3.5" screen in the seatback was a joke in today's environment."
Pros: "Plane was on schedule luggage taken as I boarded and help available as needed. This is very important for an 80 year old. Thanks for a great trip. Sue"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."
Pros: "Nothing. Again, super old plane, no screens, no movies, zero effort."
Cons: "I got tricked into spending $80 for a seat with legroom. I'm 6'6" there is zero compassion and/or understanding for being a tall person. That's fine, I'll pay more. But then I was sat in a 'special' section, the only 2 seats that are narrower than a regular seat. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do. 5 1/2 hours and I spent half the time standing up to avoid serious cramps. As a tall person I am literally getting phased out of airline seats. My knee to hip length prevents me from sitting in some seats. No one cares."
Pros: "not bad, I upgraded to first for the leg room, I'm 6'6", so it kinda worked out."
Cons: "Very old plane."
Cons: "I ask many AA customer assistance this question no body help me understand. I buy a seat and a 70$ extra for a premium what does this seat offer , what am I paying 70 $ for"
Cons: "The weather was bad in Dallas preventing our landing. Our plane had to be diverted to be refueled which caused us to miss our connecting flight. There was no one at the counter to help us, but one of the crew told us to call the 800 number which told us our connecting flight was in the air. When we finally found someone to help us, they rescheduled us for the next flight out 11 hours later. When we asked about accommodations, we were told there would be none since it was weather related. Then we were told we could "look for a cot", but she didn't know where any cots were."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Wished the airline would have checked my bag rather then leave it at the gateway Time was wasted if you had a connecting flight"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Advertised snack pack wasn't the one in the brochure. I had to pay for something I didn't care for. And couldn't put my purchase on my new AA MC because I am new."
Pros: "I like that I was finally able to come home"
Cons: "The United Airlines reps could have shown some empathy to the passengers who were delayed. The arline knew we had connecting flights and could've alerted the other flight that we were there and to wait on us. The connecting flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50. I arrived at the gate at 9:49 only to find that the flight had not only boarded but had already left. The reps at the counter showed no level of empathy and acted put out when asked to provide transportation to the reassigned gate. Lastly, the flight could've offered something more than a $10 food voucher, especially since the majority of the food in the airport is greater than $10."

The inconsiderate bumpkins in front of us put seat back and then leaned forward the whole flight. we could not even put our tray table all the way down. Coke spilled all over us in turbulence as liose tabke bounced significantly more than if set in place. Give people rude, freeze saet so cant recline or remove tray tables so we dont hurt ourselves due to rude people."
Cons: "Was not offered a drink or snack on the flight"
Pros: "Seats and entertainment"

Pros: "The flight was on time and our luggage arrived on time."

Pros: "Caught all my flights on time everything went smooth."
Cons: "Very happy"
Cons: "my daughter and I didn't even have seats together...and the plane was not full. We spent $69 and $77 to get seats together and the seat backs didn't work, no TV screens, and my expensive purse was soaking wet when I retrieved it from under the seat. So gross. And of course the food was gross...but that's to be expected, I guess."
Pros: "Staff was so hospitable"
Cons: "Crying baby"
Pros: "I had a terrible time flying from IAH to Pensacola with United. I was flying on Christmas Day and there were not enough employees from United to help the customers. One of United employees completely disregarded me when I needed help, and I ended up missing my flight."
Cons: "Didn't ride. Stuck in Chicago overnight."
Pros: "Due to weather delays "not able to accommodate" Service representative had an attitude. I understand there are a lot of issues, but it's their job in customer service and if anyone should be upset it should be the customer for not being able to make their flight as scheduled."
Pros: "Boarding and crew were good"
