Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Maintenance issues which led to a flight delay- understandable But we have been on the plane waiting to taxi. The person talking said it will take “3-4 minutes” to deplane...it’s taken about 45 min... Don’t overpromise and under deliver"
Cons: "Lack of a crew delayed flight 4 + hours."
Pros: "The crew was friendly enough and the seat size / storage was typical for standard plane tickets."
Cons: "The flight was extremely cold. Coming from Mexico to LA we didn't have jackets / blankets on us but it would have been very helpful for this flight. Deplaning at LAX was ridiculous. We stood on the tarmac outside the plane inside a glass tube for 20-25 minutes with no information waiting for a bus."
Cons: "Takes forever to load and unload those big planes."
Cons: "Air conditioning"
Cons: "On time is always better, otherwise it was a good flight."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! food, crews attitude, helpfulness"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. A nice, calm trip."
Cons: "It would have been nice if members of my group could have flown together instead of being scattered around the airplane."
Cons: "Get the plane to terminal bridge and not buss the passengers to and from to plane."
Pros: "Comfortable seat, no middle seat on my side of plane."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "Flying these days is no better than taking a local bus."
Cons: "The delay of 1 hour inside the aircraft and at the end before they closed the doors 3 new passengers came in and it appeared that the aircraft was waiting for these passengers"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly pretty good. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "The 3 1/2 hour delay was the worst - missed our connecting flight because of it, which is pretty bad when you're supposed to have a 3 1/2 hour layover. Then the flight they put us on was 3 1/2 hours late. We got home at 7 am instead of midnight. Spent 45 minutes sitting on the runway in Philadelphia because another plane was at our gate so we had to wait for them to take off, not just leave the gate. Flight attendants were efficient but not at all friendly - not a smile among them."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Delayed on the tarmac"
Pros: "crew were top notch"
Cons: "plane did not connect to a jet bridge for boarding or exiting no charging area no WIFI"

Pros: "Our seat upgrade was great. had plenty of leg rooms. Staff was attentive and flight was once again comfortable."
Cons: "Took a while to embark on time. The in flight usb on all of our seats wasn't functioning at all. At least the entertainment portions was working."
Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"

Pros: "Very comfortable. Each seat had its own monitor with lots of entertainment options."
Pros: "Selection of movies, food, air hostess"
Cons: "There was no personal screen like most flights have now. We had to watch the movies on the general screen overhead; however, the sound for the headphones didn't work so we couldn't enjoy those movies. The flight was a non-stop 9hr flight, which made it seem very long without having entertainment."
Pros: "Lovely service on the plane, I fly every other week or so and it was a relatively easy travel day."
Cons: "They were late because of bad scheduling and the gate agent was rude"

Cons: "Being forced to pay extra for seating because no other seats available."

Cons: "You are kidding."
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Pros: "Large selection of movies/TV to keep your mind busy, food is great and plenty of it (liked the additional ice cream and free beer at meals)"
Cons: "I tried to tell the attendant my screen wasn't working but she cut me off and said "it's loading" (it had been loading for 30 min while everyone else's screen was working, but she was gone before I could mention that). I watched my wife's screen for a whole movie and then re-asked a different attendant if they would mind restarting my screen. He did, and it loaded."
Cons: "The touch screens were less than responsive. They weren't very touch sensitive."
Pros: "Staff try ed not much they could do"

Cons: "see review headline above"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner"
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The television was in the aisle and couldn't be properly seen. Also there was no outlet charger. During boarding, even thou they called by group number, the crew allowed a queue in the front, making it confusing who was in line and who wasn't. Better wait till the end to board that get in that mess"
Pros: "we didn't crash"
Cons: "EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS FLIGHT WAS MISERABLE, but particularly the fact that we are packed in like sardines in a can. I'm 5'3 (on a good day) and weigh less than 115 pounds and those planes are UNBEARABLE. If I had been sitting next to one of the 100 obese people waiting for that flight I would have had a mental breakdown. No joke. I realize you are trying to be profitable but making your customers miserable is not the way."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Pros: "entertainment system on domestic flight is swesome"
Cons: "boarding took long time"
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Pros: "Nothing: worst flight !"
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly and helpful staff especially flight attendant on EWN/CLT flight. She was great and extremely helpful."
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Cons: "Lack of entertainment provided."
Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"
Pros: "It was a short flight to begin with but due to winds it was delayed."
Cons: "Due to bumpy air nothing but water was handed out to cabin passengers. 1st class managed tho. We were asked to stay seated almost the entire flight, although people still went to restroom as needed. After a late night it would have been nice for a little bite to eat. But apparently mother nature thought otherwise."
