Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Delayed for an hour and a half because of a flat tire"
Cons: "When I arrived to check in at 5:48am for my 6:20am flight, I was treated very poorly. The lady at the counter asked me what time my flight was and I said 6:20 and right off the bat she was extremely rude and said that I missed the flight. I panicked internally and asked her how that was possible?! She said the cutoff was at 5:45am and I missed it. I asked if there were other flights available today or tomorrow and she said there was nothing she could do and that I had to call the booking company to see if they could book me. I wanted to cry because my friend had just dropped me off and I called to see if she was close enough to turn back. Luckily she hadn’t left yet. I called the booking company and they were able to book me a trip for the following day but they charged me an additional $100. I wish they had disclosed that we need to be there 45 minutes to an hour early otherwise you miss your flight. And it’s ridiculous that I had to pay an extra $100... financially it was stressful due to the covid 19 situation. I was extremely disappointed in how the lady at the check in counter at American Airlines treated me. She www extremely rude and I have never been spoken to in a way that made me feel attacked."
Pros: "They were fine. Seemed really short with a mom and her children but other than that, average."
Cons: "Well, my flight was delayed for an hour and a half and it seemed like the airlines mistake, not weather. It's going to make me over 2 his late to a concert, which is the main reason I came here. So hopefully they let me in, or I just spent $300 for nothing."
Pros: "Great crew and staff."
Cons: "I didn’t notice that the aircraft didn’t have chargers so my phone died mid flight. I wish there were chargers on long flights."
Pros: "Everything was great."
Pros: "There was a TV with entertainment. The fight to DR was terrible with no TV for some reason, in 2019"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "No customs forms on board. Big inconveny"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable main cabin."
Cons: "Lead flight attendant too casual. Didn’t wear jacket, didn’t even know he was a member of the crew until he walked the aisles mid flight. Wore Bluetooth headset around his neck. Inflight WiFi entertainment didn’t work at all. Internet (AA.com) seemed to function."
Pros: "I like the fact that I made it to London alive. The turbulence was so bad and the pilot never came on and reassured us I was shaking and nervous all the way across the ocean"
Cons: "The boarding issue to me is a big problem you should put the conditions of the ticket up front and center for example boarding last when you are on an international flight with bags that need to be put in the overhead is a big problem having to pay for each seed internationally for each leg of the trip made my ticket just as expensive as if I had bought it from a regular company never again will I use your service rip off rip off. Once you buy the ticket then you send clarification letting the passenger know they have no rights I had no right to anything I was wondering if they were going to tell me I had to clean the plane in order to be transported from New York to Spain. A satisfied customer is a repeat customer you got over on me once but never again"
Pros: "Frequent updates on lightning in the area ( causing delays). Full service on board while we were wIting for weather to clear. Very good i flight service."

Pros: "Boarding, crew, frequent refreshments."
Cons: "Entertainment was virtually non-existent"
Pros: "The trip was fast and efficient. The crew was very friendly and we had no issues."
Pros: "Delays, delays, delays. An initial delay of 1.5 hours due to a switched plane. Then they needed mechanics to check out a bird hit to the plane. That took another 3 hours to happen. And they boarded us first, then found the issue, deplaned us, had a gate switch and then the wait. Very frustrating! Once on board, everything went smoothly as it typically does."
Cons: "The long delay"
Pros: "Multiple delays with little information as to why or by when it would be corrected."

Cons: "We were delayed due to some balance issues."
Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."
Cons: "Seats are small and not ergonomic"
Pros: "American Airlines was fantastic. The plane was new and nice. The crew was wonderful. No problems."
Cons: "Never will I book through a third party again. I was not able to choose my seats or upgrade my seats until I got to the airport. Also, I was not able to get a boarding pass for my 2nd flight until I got to the 2nd airport which caused a minor problem at immigration. DO NOT BOOK WITH WEBJET!!"
Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"

Rebooked for the next day an airport an hour away from original destination and had to provide my own transportation to destination. Finally they lost my luggag."

Pros: "Plane was on time, everything proceeded like clockwork."
Cons: "Paying for luggage or food."
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Cons: "Too long of a layover when flying from san diego through phoenix to detroit. Need to look for improvement in scheduling to make this a trip enjoyable."
Pros: "Getting through security was a lot better than I thought. Also, I had plenty of room and the overall ride was smooth."
Cons: "I just wish that there was a little more room and easier ways to earn miles and entry into the lounge."
Pros: "Great crew!"

Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Everything I like :)"
Pros: "i dislike booking with British Airways and ending up flying with American Airlines, who is their partner. This usually happens from US>London, but happened both ways this trip. AA flies outdated aircraft with old entertainment systems. Time for an upgrade! AA crew is okay, but BA crew is better. Might choose a different carrier next time."

Cons: "All most everything. The seats are too small. I felt like I was in a cattle car. The food was cheap and offered little in nutrition. The attendants seemed to be understaffed although one attendant tried hard to be courteous. The lavatories were reeking by the time we landed. Flying has become a chore.

Pros: "All service from check in to boarding was just ok."

Granted when I finally got to the kiosk, I went through in a short amount of time but I’m not sure of the benefit as I knew I would need an assistant to review my documents."

Cons: "The seats were super close , I felt like a sardine . My legs were cramped and it hurts so bad. The WiFi didn’t work as good as it was supposed to. They gave us a little bag of mixed snacks as if we were toddlers. $425 spent on a flight to be treated like that ? Never again"

Cons: "Heh, it's 2017 and the halcyon days of travel are long gone . . . unless you're willing to shell out money . . . and more money. . . and more money. Flying is a demeaning experience where the airlines nickel and dime you for everything. Seats in economy are miniscule, your neighbors are in your laps, the food is objectionable and costly, entertainment non-existent or costly. Customers are cash cows who can be sucked dry for every amenity."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 4 hours due to airplane maintenance"

Pros: "Delta airline"
Cons: "floght delay ; at least 3 times for me!"
Cons: "The visitor documents could have been passed out sooner. We didn't babe much time before landing to complete and instructions were not very clear."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. We accidentally left our Camera on the plane and didn't realize it until we got to our hotel. They had found it and returned it directly to our hotel. They saved our honeymoon."
Cons: "We had checked in early and selected seats together because this trip was our honeymoon. We or an alert saying our plane was changed as well as our seats and we were seated on OPPOSITE SIDES of the plane. We were then charged over $200 in order to sit next to each other. I even called United directly and they said there was nothing they could do. That's pretty inexcusable and ridiculous. If the customer service representatives are not Empowered enough to rectify such an egregious inconvenience, then why do they exist?"
Pros: "On time Skilled pilots Smooth landing Accommodating staff Pleasant"
Cons: "There was no entertainment, no more food left when they got to my seat and the seats were really small"
