Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Everything is good !"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and it was easy to catch a quick nap."
Cons: "I wasn't offered any type of sanitation wipes like I was on my way departure. The airport in Mississippi disnt offer any type of sanitation such as hand sanitizer or a reputable substitute. Sure their were bathrooms, but that's very inconvenient to have to use every time you touch something."
Pros: "Travel is becoming a pain ... what’s new?"
Cons: "Just the way travel has become —loathsome"
Cons: "God knows how long we sat in the plane on the tarmac. I fell asleep! Totally missed my tour at the Airplane boneyard as a consequence. Way to go AA. You truly suck!"
Pros: "The flight crew and the captain were terrific."
Cons: "Gate agents were rude. Everybody was forced to check-in their carry on luggage due to the small plane. This information should have been shared before boarding. We were informed as we were boarding and had to scramble to remove the laptop from our carry-on and help up passengers behind us from boarding. A totally unnecessary stressful situation created by the gate agents for failing to share information. Once we got onboard we saw carry-ons larger then what we were forced to check-in. Evidently, enforcement of standards is at the gate agents' discretion."
Pros: "Everything was seamless."
Cons: "Why are seats so small?"
Cons: "Communication among crew members was terrible. We had to ride a crowded shuttle over to the plane only to be told we could not get off because the crew was running late. The crew shows up and begins their pre-flight preparations, but we then could not get off the shuttle because of broken air system"
Pros: "When my original flight out of Roanoke was delayed so much that I was going to miss my connection an employee went above and beyond to find me a different flight to ensure I got home that day."
Cons: "The first AA employee basically told me I was out of luck and there was nothing he could do, which was incorrect and he just didnt want to do everything he could to help me like the other employee eventually did."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats that worked"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "I appreciate that I was able to switch seats thereby giving the cat and its owner more room."

Pros: "Good piloting...courteous on board service"
Cons: "Entertainment system was not operational. No food..only simple snack. Even willing to pay only a simple snack box is available...few choices due to length of flight being under 3 hours."
Pros: "Plane and fact that pilot was able to make up lost time"
Cons: "Plane had plenty of room for carry on bags. No need for valet bag check."
Cons: "No entertainment. Everything got somehow disconnect d. No one could reboot it and there was no explanation or concessions given. The staff were not forthcoming. The flight also took incredibly long to land. The landing was very bumpy like the plane slammed into the concrete."
Cons: "Flight was delayed almost two hours due to crew staffing issues."
Pros: "Great movie selection, food was good and crew was amazing"
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Pros: "Plenty space due to flight not completely booked ."
Cons: "No personal choice in entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Food was not good at all."

Pros: "Everything was organized pleasant staff,"
Cons: "At the beginning it wasn't clear the flight was operated by AA, but it is a failure of the British Airlines broker who sold the tickets. We almost missed the flight"
Pros: "Lots of good movies"
Cons: "Less than average legroom for an international flight."
Pros: "A flight that actually had extra seats? I couldn't believe it. Plus the entertainment options made the 8 hour flight "fly" by (no pun intended)"
Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."
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"
Pros: "All good! Nice staff. Easy travel."
Pros: "clean and newer airplane"
Cons: "7 hour flights must have good entertainment facilities like individual screen wherein you can choose your own. I don't normally get a good sleep on planes so a good entertainment is a must for me..."
Pros: "Very quick connection"
Pros: "Speedy boarding"
Cons: "Unmotivated crew, uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "No wi Fi available and I paid for an all day pass"
Pros: "It was a very early morning flight and yet the two flight attendants were awesome!"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Cons: "I reserved an exit seat , it is not comfortable at all . there is no space to keep my stuff in cabinet , my lagguge late in Chicago there is no entirtenment"
Cons: "I paid for an upgrade to Business and my seat would not recline. Spent the whole 6 hours in one position."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Attendants very good."
Cons: "Everything fine."
Pros: "Both my flights were slightly early (a plus for me, might not be for all) and I had no issues or complaints."
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Cons: "That there is no internet"
Cons: "flight was rebooked to a terrible time, the next day, had to spend over $300 for hotel, extra parking, extra meal, extra day on rental."
Cons: "See all comments in first leg section"
Pros: "I used points to bump up this flight to first class and was very grateful for the delicious food and extra room. We received good service from attendants who checked on us often to bring extra drinks and answer questions. I see now that it's worth the extra money/points to fly first class. Thank you for making it a great experience!"
Cons: "I felt the flight attendant who first served me was a little brash. We were seated for what seemed like extra time before takeoff so I ordered a mimosa when asked if I wanted a drink. She seemed reluctant to give it to me so I wish she had explained that there wasn't much time or explained any hesitations that she was maybe trying to hide from her expressions. I was only 1/3rd finished with the drink when she practically grabbed it from my hands and said she had to take it away. A warning would have been nice, I could have finished it faster. Then during the flight when I ordered another one so I could actually enjoy it, she still seemed hesitant/judgmental and finally said "that will be the last champagne the plane has." It was an awkward experience that I didn't appreciate. However, this same attendant seemed more friendly throughout the flight and was kind and helpful."
Pros: "This one at least flew off the runway soon after closing its doora"
Cons: "Why are you bothering me with a survey after your already inconvenienced me with a flight I had to cancel? No notification that this flight would not make my connection in time. No alternatives given. Horrible customer service all around."
