Pros: "Amenities, seating, plane was newer and nice"

Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "First flight delayed 30mins due to crew rest issues."
Pros: "Transportation of my pet with no issues"
Cons: "First flight delayed for mechanical. Put on another flight. About to take off and ground for two hrs on the tarmac. No refreshments offered on either. The only thing they did was tell us we had the right to de board after sitting in silence for 1.5 hrs. I wish I could say this is not the norm for American Airlines but they are 5/6 in the past two months for being late and having mechanical issues"

Pros: "Both flights on time. Boarding slow but organized"

Pros: "Flight was delayed. booked another flight through Dallas with a 150 minutes layover there. That almost wasn't enough as we had an unscheduled 1 hour stop in Austi . In Dallas I had to run from one flight to the next. The only reason I made was because the connecting flight eas also delayed. In rhe end we landed at SFO (instead of OAK) over 2 hours later than originally scheduled. To make matters worse, there was a backup on the Dublin grade, making the drive home to Tracy over three hours long. arrived at SAT at 4:30 PM CDT and arrived home in Tracy after 3:30 AM OFT. oh yeah, and my luggage didn't make it at all..."

Cons: "The seats have been refurbished In the narrow size."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No overhead. No crew interaction getting on or off plane. First time in 55 years no crew at door as deplaned."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and pleasant"
Pros: "I feel everyone was courteous and professional in their job. Nothing special happened that was outstanding."

Pros: "The aircraft was perfect :)"
Cons: "The new basic economy fair. My tickets were booked before this happened and I was requested to pay my carry on"

Cons: "air conditioning did not work well. heat was coming into the plane from the windows."
Pros: "The punctuality of the boarding, take off and landing of the flight!"
Cons: "When I came up to have a seat assigned, the representative could have given me a better seating, not necessarily a First Class ( as they were available AND I checked in as an Active Duty Army Officer) but instead assigned me a seat at the rear of the aircraft! Horrible, if that's how AA treats their dedicated service members!"
Pros: "On time, staff at gate and on plane friendly and courteous."
Cons: "No plug for electronics. Seats crowded with heavy person next to me."
Pros: "Punctuality and clean plane"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "People were nice about screwing us ocer."
Cons: "We boarded on time. But then we sat outside forever because apparently they had too much fuel. Then we left 40+ minutes late. Then when we got to Dallas our fate was taken.

Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."

Pros: "Quick load, full flight, courteous crew."
Cons: "As the norm, American Airlines once again did not have their numbers prior to departure. Upon arrival American Airlines did not have a gate readily available for us. This caused a delay in arrival and a delay in departure. American Airlines is renowned for this type of treatment. I had hoped it would improve when US Airways had acquired them. Unfortunately, such is not the case. You can do better."

Pros: "Mas o menos"
Cons: "En el manejo de mi maleta me rompierón una de las ruedas de la maleta."
Pros: "The space of the plane since I volunteered to be at the emergency door I felt comfortable..."
Cons: "Not giving me my seat number because my ticket was not a standby ticket and I seem to think that the agent thought that I was on standby but I have to go to him several time to make him understand that my ticket had a confirmation number and I did a reserve and I needed a seat number it was not on standby when he checked it he said okay and I also explained to him that I was a military personnel ...

Cons: "Mechanical failures flights canceled had to rebook the next day!"
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Gosh---no feedback on delay of takeoff . Didn't seem like they tried to avoid the turbulence which lasted the entire 4 hour flight . And to top it off the landing tossed us around in our seats because it was so rough. No apology and no sign of pilots when we disembarked very odd"
