Pros: "I like that you could watch TV, movies, or listen to music."
Cons: "When we arrived to SFO the flight was delayed for mechanical issues. When they couldn't fix the plane they had to fly another one from the Island to get us. This resulted in over a 14 hour delay and ruining our plans for our first day. The wing in SFO was all under construction so if you wanted to get anything you had to leave security and go back through it over and over."
Pros: "Room for my tennis racket on the side"
Cons: "It was all good"
Cons: "My surfboard bag was ripped and all straps were broken and was then patched up with duct tape!!! What the F#€*?!! It looked like it fell off the plane and was run over. Plus my bike box was torn to bits and patched with duct tape and was cut open by someone’s knife, I ended up loosing bike parts because of this. Horrible bag handling by the crew!! This was all noticed when I picked up my bags in Auckland"
Cons: "No free blanket. No free entertainment."
Cons: "Waiting for baggage at the baggage claim."

Pros: "Nice crew, comfortable seat, good temperature."
Cons: "Appreciated the complimentary sandwich but since I am vegetarian had to pull the meat out and basically eat a cheese sandwich. Poor selection of "free" movies - just ended up reading."
Cons: "When I checked in i asked the agent to help me board early since I was carrying a fragile musical instrument. She said check back later. I had no seat assigned and was told I would be seated after all families were taken care of. I waited and waited and finally when everyone was boarded, I checked one last time because I was the only person left in the waiting area and the gate agent totally forgot about me. So she assigned me to a seat that had a wall in front of it and no storage space in the seat in front of me. I was livid. Thankfully I didn’t have to check the instrument but the hassle was a nightmare I really wanted to avoid."
Pros: "Boarding didn’t take too long and seats were comfortable."
Cons: "WiFi on plane would be awesome!"
Pros: "Our flights were delayed in both directions!"

I watched her handle multiple difficult situations. In a severely stressful moment insane her handle with such grace and professionalism. She deserves a personal pat on the back and a raise:)"
Cons: "Customer service"
Pros: "Really friendly attendants"
Pros: "The free run punch and chips they serve right before landing."
Cons: "Reserved seats and they were not honored. Instead we were stuck in the next to last row. Agents were unapologetic and did not care."
Pros: "Let me think, food was free. Some of the staff was friendly. Glad was the flight was quick, because I don't think I could deal with that staff anymore than the few interactions I had with them."
Cons: "Lets start with the boarding process. Its not organized and just a huge mess. This zone boarding thing is very old school and no where is there a screen saying which zone is boarding, you have to listen for the quiet announcement and hope you heard it correctly, because they only say it once. When on board, the staff I dealt with was having a bad day or something, because slamming drinks down on tray tables and cups in to a half full cup must be the norm. The passenger next to me mentioned that the staff was very rude to me, as I was pretty passive at the time. The seats are somewhat comfortable, but when the staff tells you not to lean back because the lady behind you doesn't have enough leg room, then whats the point of paying for comfort plus. The food may be free, but if you want some sort of entertainment, TV shows or movies, it isn't free. Everything must be paid for on this flight. You pay a pretty penny to get on these flights only for them to up-sell you on everything! This airline needs some major changes to staff and technology."

When my 1st flight was delayed I asked to be rebooked then and the delta employee insisted that I would make my connection. I didn't make it. This is not all. I could have gotten to a near city several hours after but on the same day, but the mediocrecy of this employes did not allow me to get there until the next day at 7 am. Happy new year to me. This two women (or one of them) on the phone, lied to me. There was an option to get me here and one of them failed to do their job right AND LIED TO MY FACE ON THE PHONE. Just unacceptable. I will sue them, I had an under age waiting for me in Cancun and a pet with me!. With no food or access to do its necessities. AND THERE WAS AN OPTION THAT "they missed" on porpuse."

Pros: "The Good: The seat configuration available for an upcharge of $38 gave just enough additional room to make getting my frail elderly mother in and out of her seat and accessing items she needed from a bag stored under the seat ahead of me much easier and safer than it would have been in, say, the sardine can-like conditions of the coach section on United flights."
Cons: "The Bad: At boarding, American does not provide pre-boarding for those who need extra time. I was traveling with my elderly mother, who can walk (very) short distances but is quite frail. American was great about providing a wheelchair to the gate, but then we were on our own. Because there was no designated boarding for people needing extra time or assistance, I had to sharp elbow my way to the front of the post-first class boarders and talk folks into letting her through. Stressful for both of us."
