Pros: "Everything was great. I especially liked the enter active map that showed some towns and lakes we flew over and the speed and elevation of the aircraft."
Cons: "More details on the map, for example, show landforms, mountain ranges, major roadways, rivers, etc."

Pros: "Once getting on the plane, experience was great. 15/10 on the inflight entertainment option. Was not expecting that luxury and was super grateful! Flight attendants were amazingly sweet and helpful. (Cali and Stephanie)"
Cons: "the gate was never posted on the mobile boarding pass, online, the tv next to the gate or the airport boards (it was never posted anywhere). Everywhere said TBD or was blank when everything else was filled. I only accidentally found the gate because I knew my flight should be boarding so I went to all the lines and it ultimately was the unmarked one and I had to ask the person at the desk. I almost missed this flight because the lack of communication on what gate the flight was from."

Cons: "American Airlines lost our luggage and both flights were late, wife her cell phone and credit cards due to running in airport to catch our flight to Lisbon. Not impressed."

Pros: "Ease of bording"

Pros: "The crew was good given the challenges of a delayed flight"

Cons: "Uncomfortable Old plane with cigarette compartments Unfriendly staff They could not Sit me and my partner together because of the “fate” which was like 700 USD each! Yet they had empty seats and the ability to fulfill the request. It’s sad the low service level, operated by American Airlines booked with British Airways."

Pros: "Plane was cleaner than most. Not freezing cold like almost all other flights"
Cons: "Paid for upgrade that wasn't great. Next class down was just as good. AWFUL FOOD!! Worst I have ever had. HATE the new seat design. Cant lean against the window because of the gap. My purse fell through the gap onto the floor behind my seat. Had to ask the person behind me 3 times to please hand it back to me. The armrest doesnt go up which helps at times getting in and out. It is a large uncomfortable impediment. The remotes were all over the place, down in the seat, on the floor. No one could find the plug in for the headphones. It is in the most ridiculous place!"

Pros: "Smooth flight, on time!"

Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I felt like cattle. Horrible for long haul flights."

Pros: "the flight was on time"
Cons: "the seats are too close together. I understand the desire to maximize quantity; I do however think that AA has gone too far. Leg room is necessary, not a luxury. The cost of the ticket should include leg room."

Pros: "Flight was delayed in classic AA form, ten minutes at a time, leaving you standing around the gate picking your nose with no information! An hour later we board. Our flight attendant Nicky was awesome!"
Cons: "The plane had no power outlets and spotty WiFi. Even though they knew we were late to Charlotte, they let our connection take off EXACTLY on time while dozens of us rand through the airport. AA does this to themselves, they are the worst!"

Pros: "Worst experience food is very bad"

Pros: "good selection of movies"
Cons: "Mess up between the 2 airlines operating the 2 different legs of the journey means that we didn't get our boarding pass and (the worst) seats until 1h15 before departure... and we were not the only ones facing this stressful situation. One luggage lost, with Iberia luggage delivery service team in Barcelona being slow to understand how to work a google map."
