Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"

Pros: "The prompt transfer"
Cons: "My one piece of hard shell luggage has a special, difficult way of latching. As long as nobody opens it, it stays fine for shipping. The problem is your greedy Chinese luggage handling thieves who work for your airlines in Chinese airports. Whenever they can steal from luggage, they always try to steal from passengers, particularly American. I have had multiple experiences with theft from Chinese airports. I have been to China and back to the USA five times. Many times, items have disappeared from my suitcases in Chinese airports. That is why I decided not to move to China to live but instead move to Indonesia. However, if I fly any plane that transfers my luggage in China, I can usually expect to have my luggage robbed. Although this time, nothing was missing from my luggage, that fact that your people had to wrap my suitcase in plastic (because they did not know the secret for relatching it) and resend it a day later, that is proof that one of your airport personnel opened it to see what he could steal and then got caught because he could not close it again. I am really really really tired of you Chinese thieves. I blame all of you because you are all a product of Mao Tse Tung’s godless atheistic evil society. The Chinese have proven to me again and again that they cannot be trusted. A Kong Chinese official even stole my Ohio driver’s license when I transferred through that airport on a previous trip to Jakarta. I understand your problem. If you fire all dishonest luggage department workers, you will not have any workers remaining. That is why you will always rank as a third world backward primitive society even though you buy expensive airplanes that you don’t build and dress your people up like professionals which they aren’t. AS LONG AS Chinese airport luggage people are dishonest and cannot be trusted, your entire airline is a failure. That is not prejudice against Chinese people. I know some honest good ones. They are all Christians, the kind of good people the corrupt Chinese government hates. An atheistic country is an evil country. Do not expect to be respected by honest people. You people clearly do not deserve it. You are still in the stone age when it comes to professionalism which requires total honesty, a quality which your luggage handlers consider to be dispensable. Such cave men they are!"

Pros: "All restroom floors were wet. I have seen this in others 767's too. Is this a 767 phenomenon"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Stewards"

Pros: "loved the cookies!"
Cons: "Wish there were more legroom on those little planes."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "cramped"

Cons: "see above"

Pros: "Plane got to NY."
Cons: "Plane got to NY an hour late due to a maintenance issue, and we missed a connection because of it. Delta staff very unhelpful regarding connections and rebooking... we got redirected to a wall of phones to call for help."

Pros: "Was good"

Pros: "Excellent"

Pros: "the Ground team from Israel to New York was amazing and very helpful."

Pros: "It's what I didn't like....as a Sky Miles member I should get a free bag. Small aircraft for a FL trip."

Cons: "Announcements were difficult to hear. ?static"

Cons: "make me sleep in the airport unexceptedly"

Cons: "Coming back was good ,but going was a mess"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I paid additional money for 3 seats together, when I got to check in I was told I cannot do that. I had to sit separately from my children. I was sat next to an obese man. I kindly asked the flight attendant if I can take empty seat across the aisle from me and was told no without a reason. I thought we were doing social distance ,but apparently not. As for there earlier claim of no 3 seats available next to each other .. it was obviously a lie because the seats just across from me where empty. I hope not to fly on American Airlines again."

Pros: "Great crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Plane was late getting in so boarding was an hour late"

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 crew was very nice and service-oriented."
Cons: "Things are weird now due to COVID-19"

Cons: "Delayed flight. Sat on Tarmac for 60 mins"

Cons: "The flight was delayed for two hours"

Pros: "On time, good boarding process."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Left late and had a middle seat"

Pros: "good luggage space overhead - accommodate wheelie vertically like books. each seat had indiv tv screen, recent movies, usb charger, 3 prong charger."

Pros: "There is nothing positive to say besides it got me where I needed to go, even though my first flight was cancelled and had to completely redirect to another airport an that took me 2 hours to get to."
Cons: "Everything, the staff was rude especially at the gate. I was forced to check my bag not because of size but because I was in Group 6 boarding and I got on there was plenty of room on the plane. I had even explained I needed to do work and would have to hold everything in my arms."

Pros: "Clean airplane. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Leg room is too small"

Cons: "American Airlines cancelled this flight and then sent one of my two checked luggages to another flight to Newark from Chicago O'Hare and didn't even think to put me and the luggage I left behind on said flight? Either they should have left both and let me deal with it OR send me on a flight."

Pros: "The crew was excellent. Very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "They seem to have a lot of technical issues. The flight to my destination was cancelled about 8 hours prior to the flight due to maintenance issues with the plane. The computer system at the airport crashed on the return flight and caused a long delay. I won’t fly AA again."

Pros: "Crew"

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Plane was hot and smelly upon boarding; turbulence on landing caused delay with no updates from pilot"

Cons: "Delayed and had to fly around when getting to Newark. Supposed to land at 11:30 and it’s 1:40am and not even off the plane. Never flying American again."

Pros: "Delayed"
Cons: "Delayed"

Cons: "Flight was delayed 90 minutes"

Cons: "Instead of flying MIA-EWR I was sent to ORD and then to EWR arriving at 11:00pm"

Cons: "Departure gate staff forced passengers to check bags, when there were multiple empty overhead bins on the plane at takeoff. This makes no sense."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Got to Nj safe"
Cons: "3hr delay leaving; delays in getting bags at baggage claim"

Pros: "The on-board attendants were personable and efficient."
Cons: "The lack of overhead storage was not noted at the gate so about half the passengers had to have their hand luggage tagged on the plane itself, involving wheeling to the back to be tagged. Then once everyone was seated, the attendant wheeled them by and passengers had to call out when they saw their bag go by so that they could be issued the corresponding luggage claim ticket. The seat width and pitch was sad compared to 'low cost' airlines like JetBlue."

Cons: "They damage my luggage both of my suitcases broken and the airline doesn't give me an answer and doesn't want to reimburse me the money I paid for the suitcases. Airline good for nothing."

Cons: "Bought a sandwich which was old ..."

Cons: "The flight had no pilot assigned to the flight yet the attendants still boarded us. Then we waited on the plane for an hour before exiting the plane. The attendants gave us little information on flight alternatives and when the flight was finally allowed to board again, they did not announce it and so had I not been waiting close by, I would have missed my flight. It was extremely disappointing but not shocking with all the scandals that have occurred this year with American Airlines. I do not recommend flying with them."

Pros: "ON TIME"
Cons: "NO ROOM TO BREATHE. AISLE TOO SMALL TO WALK WITHOUT HITTING SOMEONE AA IS MAKING BILLIONS PER YEAR IN PROFIT. SO CHEAP, YET PRICES ARE SOOOOOOO HIGH"

Pros: "Nice staff, on time"

Pros: "Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "We taxied on the runway for over an hour. The plane was uncomfortably hot while we taxied. They could have waited to board the flight or served drinks while we waited."

Pros: "Purchased extra legroom -- on time boarding"

Pros: "Leave and arrive on time"

Pros: "Helpful staff"

Cons: "Very uncomfortable and noisy flight kid behind us cried the whole trip no food no tv nowhere to charge phone no internet just bad experience overall"

Cons: "The usual delays out of O'Hare. This plane was an older plane, but good enough for a medium length flight."

Pros: "Wifi available. Big plus!"

Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"

Cons: "Couldn't get off the plane. A problem with the ramp."

Cons: "I was supposed to be in stand by and the screen continue showing I could go to the counter and get a seat and I have to wait till the end so that I was going to be given a middle seat. I said forget about it, to pay 75 dlls for a change of ticket and you make me wait till the end to give me seat u want, forget it, I know this is stand by ticket but I dont like the attitude of the people, they dont help you at all really bad service you should learn from other airlines giving at least if you are delayed an apology and sometimes miles reward, not just food... Thanks for the SERVICE (i dont flight with you no more, even though cheap flights, but cheap things are expensive)"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Was asked to keep moving to another check in line. By the time we got to an open kiosk it was too late and the machine said we could no longer check our bags! Just Awful"

Pros: "Ecerything from the boarding to the seating assignment"
Cons: "Just have to be organize as they do the boarding process"

Pros: "I purchased extra leg room -- very spacious"
Cons: "Long weather delay -- over three hours."

Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."

Pros: "Flight was on time."
