Crew timed out for a 7:20am flight. They had to fly another crew in. Didn’t leave until 3pm. Very poor communication throughout the day. Received a $12 food voucher and 8000 miles for compensation. Bags delayed in San Diego - came in on later flight. Delivered around 11:30pm
Flight was cancelled. AA customer service is a nightmare. A lot of flights cancelled during the night we had to stay on a hotel until next day and pay for expenses Very disappointed
The boarding was a mess with the ground personal! Twice in a role transit in Narita both confusing, delays,, and many passengers were upset! They could do a much better job! All we saw are the girls busy running around but accomplish nothing!
Tried to check in online as per usual - what a nightmare. Couldn't change my seat, tried 16 times and was rejected from process at change seat screen every time. Ended up having to phone BA at 5.30 am in the UK on my mobile from the US as was automatically allocated last row non-aisle seat - the worst place on the plane. On hold with executive club for 25 mins - I'm dreading the charges. Executive club customer service also couldn't change the seat (no reason given) but could see a free seat was available and would put a note about seat change for the airport check in staff. Got to airport - told no note on system and that UK BA executive club customer service staff had 'lied' to me by check in staff at san diego End up sitting next to toilet with constant noise all night. I will not fly with BA again (other than to try and use up existing avios). Virgin are now giving way superior service on my transatlantic routes and swiss air for my short hauls. This flight was confirmation that ba no longer offers good value or service.
PHOG airport infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired and even lack back up electrical generators for power outage contingencies that delayed the departure of this flight more than 1.5 hrs. As the gateway to Maui they need a lot of work to meet standards
Air conditioning was broken on both flights
The aircraft was clean and new. The crew excellent
Online communication worse than terrible.
Pros: "This was the worst flying experience I have ever encountered."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac 3 hours, then deplaned to a holding area for another hour and then were told the flight would be delayed until 1 pm the next day. I booked this flight in order to arrive home 7 hours earlier than originally planned on Alaska Air. I finally arrived 20 hours LATER THAN I WOULD HAVE ARRIVED!"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Stop charging for wifi. Jet blue has free wifi on domestic flight"
Pros: "On time, easy boarding. I have always thought they should load the back of the plane first, but I don't think that will ever happen!"
Cons: "We get it about the masks! Between the airport and the airline we hear it 100 times. Taking it down to 50 would be nice."
Pros: "It was a small jet but the first class section was extremely nice."
Cons: "Small jets have limited overhead space and most roller bags have to be gate checked for pickup when you exit the plane. My roller bag is small to fit under a seat, and it fit in the overhead."
Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Pros: "That it arrived eventually without crashing"
Cons: "Boarding. Sitting on a tarmac in hot stuffy plane for 40 min is not why I was looking for"
Cons: "The food was pretty terrible, especially the egg breakfast."
Cons: "Missed flight due to not being able to access terminal because of stopped Skylink. Arrived at terminal while plane was still boarding but was told I could not board cause it was the final two minutes. Horrible customer service. Asked them to please contact the gate and let them know I was enroute on foot. They refused."
Cons: "No había espacio para equipaje arriba."
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work."
Cons: "Instead of taking my one half of one ounce plastic cup half-full of wine, the stewad, allowed me to keep it. I love common sense."
Cons: "4 gate changes, delayed delayed delayed. UGH. Sirens going off at gate no staff around to turn it off or talk to. Lady at counter very upset with pilot. We had a plane at the 2 gate but no flight crew. Next gate no plane but crew. Who organizes this? American airlines has some work to do!"
Pros: "The entertainment system is pretty cool and complete. There seems to be more room on coach."
Cons: "The usb charger for my seat didn't work. The power cord kept falling off."
Cons: "I missed this connecting flight."
Pros: "Everything was time."
Cons: "Sitting next to the toilet."
Pros: "Although they charged me $10 to book a seat for check in it allowed me to pick one that keep the middle seat open for my wife."
Cons: "To be charged to pick a seat. You should have revealed that in you pricing."
Pros: "Too many passengers, crazy lines and the food not great. Flight crew was friendly and helpful. Was great in terms of flight time. Flight arrive earlier than expect. Was smooth flight in terms of turbulence."
Cons: "Food. I didn’t like my seat, was uncomfortable."
Pros: "Fast trip!"
Cons: "We were delayed because of a broken tray table and then the broken tray table was mine. But we made it, and the flight was good, so it was fine."
Cons: "It took 30 ish minutes to wait in line to speak to to an AA rep about what my next steps were to get home from Dallas."
Pros: "Crew aircraft and was given an exit window seat no charge"
Pros: "First class is always comfortable"
Cons: "Headline tells it all. First thing passenger did when he sat down was hand flight attendant a$5 bill, which she accepted she made sure he and the others in row one were served preboard refreshment. The rest of us not, as she was so engaged with the favored passenger. Not good!"
Pros: "Not much, the flight attendants were fine"
Cons: "They boarded the plane for the ‘on-time departure’ scam, then proceeded to do maintenance for 30 minutes, then when you think your on your way we wait another 15 minutes for takeoff. We spent more time sitting still than we did in motion. Horrible."
Pros: "Staff at SAN was good helpful. Check in was seemless."
Cons: "Wishing that they would serve something to drink — even if I would have to pay for it. Flight attendant gave me wrong directions and I left for another terminal while my carry on luggage (which had to be checked) was still at the gate. I had to wait until it arrived at baggage claim."
Pros: "IFE very good"
Cons: "No legroom"
Pros: "We shopped price, this was the most affordable flight for us."
Cons: "Getting seat reservations should be easier and sooner."
Pros: "The crew was amazing - agreeing to work extra because it was Christmas eve and they wanted us all to get to our destinations for Christmas. They were very gracious and helpful."
Cons: "We were over an hour late to leave. I understand the reason for the delay because of weather. What I was disappointed in is that the delay was not announced until our actual scheduled time to leave. It meant people coming to pick me up didn't get the change information in a timely manner."
Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."
Pros: "This flight was not full, so most people on the plane had the opportunity to spread out and have an empty seat next to them. The in-flight entertainment choices were vast."
Cons: "Food quality was not as good as some of the other flights, but there was still an ample amount of food served."
Pros: "The flight was smooth."
Cons: "The crew announced we would not receive beverage service without a reason. Also there was very little air coming from the vents, so not to receive a cold beverage on a hot airplane for a 72 minute flight (should've been 52 minutes; however we were delayed on tarmac) is not logical."
Pros: "Arrived on time !"
Cons: "We arrived on time but this is the 9th Flight in A row into PHILADELPHIA that we can’t Find an open Gate. Then we just sit and wait 15 to 30 minutes! No other airport that we travel To has this problem!"
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Cons: "The departure was delated more than 30 minutes and the arrival disembarking was to slow."
Pros: "Customer service was excellent. Comfort and other services were among the best I've experienced ever flying."
Cons: "The flight company's got changed to AA from Iberia but didn't get any email from Kayak. Send an email next time please."
Pros: "Flight went well despite some bad weather"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable and narrow. We had seats at exit door in an effort to allow for more leg room but even that did not make for a completely comfortable ride. Even on a bus you have enough room to sit without elbowing your neighbor. Cannot say the same for planes these days."
Cons: "The video screens weren't very good. You had to tap screen multiple times to select a choice."
Pros: "As a fat guy, I really like these newly built AA airplanes with huge seats. Two great flight attendants, too (a rare thing this day and age). Better than average coffee for an airline."
Cons: "Terrible turbulence. I know it's not AA's fault, but still, despite how nice the plane and staff were, I was sweating bullets for two hours!"
Pros: "Food, flight plan on the screen, selection of music and movies, that the lights were turned down for sleep, quiet efficiency of the crew"
Pros: "The stewardess was nice enough to give me water with my gingerale"
Cons: "We didn't take off until 3 hours after scheduled, and we're forced to watch ads on the overhead monitors for most of the flight. I was not impressed. Poor communication from the pilot."
Cons: "Should be allowed one checked bag per person at no charge."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "No gate available upon early arrival. Paying extra for aisle seats is ridiculous."
