Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"

Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"

Pros: "The salad was good."

Pros: "The plane ride was quick and easy!!!"

Pros: "Good leg room. Seems to have improved."
Cons: "Additional food options would be good."

Cons: "Play primetime tonight cancel playing in late overnight real pain in the butt"

Cons: "I never got to go on my trip... wasted all my money and never got anywhere and can't seem to get a refund or at least another ticket."

Pros: "We were given sandwiches and drinks when our flight was delayed."
Cons: "We boarded our flight and then told there are maintenance problems. Our flight was delayed 4 hours."

Pros: "The food and the movies!"
Cons: "The air on the plane was stale and I could barely breathe the entire flight. I feel sick and light headed after that one."

Cons: "Ok"

Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"

Cons: "Old plane"

Pros: "on time, even a little early"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane at the boarding gate for 2.5 hrs with no water or food or able to get off and wait in the airport. This caused us to miss our connecting flight and not make it to Iceland causing us to lose hundreds of dollars in accommodation and car rental etc fees in Iceland. American dis nothing about it."

Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."

Pros: "Excellent experience despite short weather delay. Outstanding flight crew"

Pros: "Very timely, didn't take forever getting off the ground"
Cons: "As a first time traveler, it would have been nice to have a little help with navigating the airport once I arrived."

Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"

Pros: "Fast boarding, courtesy of flight attendants, high tech, good meal"
