Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better route planning and time management"

Pros: "Flying is not fun… The seats are too close together making it very difficult to stand up to enter or exit the aisle!"

Pros: "Michael DJ was awesome! Made us laugh during the safety demonstration which was much appreciated on a long travel time home!"
Cons: "The descent down to the airport was rough. I felt it was done too quickly, caused a lot of pressure on my head and was very painful"

Pros: "Awful"
Cons: "Hot crowded late horrible"

Cons: "Air conditioning"

Pros: "Attentive crew, generous drinks"
Cons: "I am not crazy about this plane. I had flat beds, but the ones that face each other in an awkwardly intimate way. Also miss the places to store the things I might need/want on the flight. All I had was the little drawer."

Pros: "That the flight attendant took pity on me when she could see how flustered I was boarding and let me move up to the business class section."
Cons: "The gate agent was awful! She decided that my bag was too big to go onboard even before I put it in the measurement thing. I did have to rearrange some items - but then it fit! Regardless of the fact it completely fit on my first leg of the trip."

Pros: "I really appreciate the automatic notifications letting me know what gate my connection is at and what baggage claim I’m in. Very nice."
Cons: "Nothing that I took note of."

Pros: "Crew was great, boarded quickly."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "the movie selection was quite nice"
Cons: "I have to run to get my connection flight"

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: "That I had to take multiple plans when I wanted a one time stop"

Pros: "The service was excellent and the flight on time."
Cons: "The seats have been refurbished In the narrow size."

Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and I missed a connection in Dallas so I had to get a flight with Delta, but the staff was very helpful getting me that flight."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and pleasant"

Cons: "The aircraft was tiny and we were delayed"

Pros: "The aircraft was perfect :)"

Pros: "The flight left on time, there wasn't a lot of fuss about overhead space and we arrived early."

Cons: "Nil. No complaints what so ever."

Pros: "crew"
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!"

Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"

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: "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. Then I missed my flight. Then they offered NO support. They would not pay for a hotel and I'm presently sleeping on the airport floor. WORST EXPERIENCE EVER AND I WILL NEVER FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES AGAIN."

Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I was a little worried I wouldn't make it to the connecting flight."

Pros: "The seating was good."
Cons: "Even though the weather caused issues, i felt that we were treated poorly. I wound up having to sleep in an airport. Never had to do that before. There was no empathy for our situation whatsoever."

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

Pros: "Clean, friendly"
Cons: "The first leg of my flight left an hour earlier than scheduled, and I was never notified. Fortunately I found out when I went to "check in" the night before, and was able to arrange for earlier transportation to the airport."
