Pros: "Nice, efficient crew. Wheel chair & motor cart waiting for me as requested. Good flight."
Cons: "Cabin oppressively hot during boarding, stayed a bit too warm. Never found the power outlets that the plane profile in magazine claimed were on the aircraft."
Cons: "Our 5:30am flight was delayed for over 4 hours causing us to miss our connection. So by the time we got to our destination we had wasted the entire day. This was a loss of an entire day of our vacation. This was our first time traveling with American. We will never book with them again."
Pros: "The people working for Avianca were especially helpful and curious. We need extra help with wheelchair assistance for my wife."
Cons: "We delayed one day do to rescheduling"
Cons: "waiting on runwat for 30 minutes"
Cons: "Our original flight was delayed then cancelled. After assigning to another flight, it was delayed and gate changed about 10 times and was finally cancelled after it was boarded and left gate after 2am due to engine problem. We had to cancel our trip since it was a short trip for a funeral and we had missed it. AA offered no compensation and no apology (not during the whole night of delays and cancels)."
Pros: "Routine flight. No problems noted."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed. But it was not their fault because it was the thunderstorms that held us up."
Pros: "We landed 8 minutes early although we left 20 min late"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment on a small plane"
Pros: "flight crew on my way to BWI were great!!!"
Cons: "american airlines does not care about the privacy of their passengers. even after several calls my information wasn't updated correctly and my flight confirmation was passed along to members who weren't even traveling. there was no in flight entertainment and in order to pick seats together i needed to pay extra (i thought i was flying with american not spirit) apparently the only way i can be helped is writing a letter to customer service which they will review within 10 business days. THANKS american for starting a war in my family and ruining my trip. unfortunate the crew is so awesome but the customer service is mortifying, rude, inconsiderate and completely mechanical. i dont ever intend on flying with them again unless necessary."
Pros: "Crew did the best they could considering the situation."
Cons: "There were multiple delays, leaving half my flight with missed connections in Phoenix."
Cons: "Typical Shanghai ground delays"
Cons: "I find this fairly serious! All people were boarded on the plane In a timely manor. We were then informed that one flight attendant had not made to the flight and we were to wait until the flight attendant arrived. We waited over 20 minutes for the employee to arrive to work rather late. This put out over 200 people for one irresponsible employee. In my business that employee would of been fired unless there was a very serious reason. So a full plane of passengers were inconvienced as well as many people that were helping the passengers what maybe 300 + for one employee! Doesn't make sense!"
Pros: "To be fair. The flight is only 50 minutes. By th time you get a drink it's time to land. It is completely unfair to the staff to have to do that. A flight like that. Have a box with a snack and some coolers that have 5 different beverages. I wouldn't even sell booze. I person can hold out for a flight that shot to get one on the connection or in the terminal."
Cons: "It's always a cramped flight. Nothing to be done except use a bigger, more spacious plane. The good thing is it's the fastest way to get to Chicago from where I lived it would take 6hrs by car."
Cons: "Briish Airways does not fly to JFK from Edinburgh. I paid for a flight that apparently did not exist. I had to purchase another flight from another airline on top of the flight that I booked with Kayak. I was supposed to fly to my original airport, but I had to fly to a tiny little airport upstate and pay for a bus to get me back to NYC. I doubt I'll see any of that money I lost in the initial transaction..."
Cons: "This was on Avianca, not American Airlines"
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Booked on another 2.5 hrs later. Seating not until the last moment. No human touches... all mechanical / perfunctory."
Cons: "While Delta are stepping up their snack & refreshment options, American seems to be joining the downhill slide group. If you don't like dry pretzels... choose another airline. Also had that wonderful experience of learning after boarding that you need to have downloaded the app to be able to reach any entertainment options. And, nowhere to plug the device to keep it alive. I didn't realise that AA was competing with the budget airlines like Rouge now..."
Cons: "i ask the crew for help to locate my luggage because we didnt pick it up after we landed in chicago for custom check! we were told in thailand that our bag will be going to wichita and we did not need to pick it up in chicago, when i try to do the self check in their machine didnt work! so i had to wait in line, and then wheni ask the crew member for help to locate my luggage she said she is too busy!!!!!"
Pros: "Excellent service and very friendly; thanks!"
Cons: "The seats are too tight."
Pros: "Plane was not full and seats seemed spacious. Everything was on time."
Cons: "the entertainment systems was very slow to respond to the touch commands on the screen."
Pros: "We had a wonderful flight experience. Smooth take off and landing. The in flight service was impeccable! Will definitely be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 3.5 hours while the crew cleaned up a fuel spill and we waited for a different co-pilot."
Pros: "Plane was ancient"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly & I plan to book more trips on Kayak in the future."
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "The service was great"
Cons: "No TV or WiFi"
Cons: "The flight left late but the delay was made up for in the air."
Pros: "Volare con American"
Cons: "No snacks offered! No alcohol drinks offered!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and the gates were so crowded. Plane was very crowded, my luggage almost went missing"
Cons: "The crew services are excellent"
Cons: "My wifi was not working for the entire trip!"
Cons: "I was made to pay for my carry on because of weight. I didn’t understand that when I booked. I am also certain that many other carry ones were more than 12 kilos."
Cons: "Food could be improved by improving preperation"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and flight was excellent"
Cons: "Not enough movie options"
Pros: "You got me there without problems. Even the baggage got transferred. Better if seats declined more. I would pay an extra 40 to have a more seat recline."
Pros: "It was comfirtable"
Cons: "They charged you for earphones. On our flight to St. John’s they didn’t charge for earphones. The flight from Toronto to St. John’s was delayed almost 4 hours because a deicing machine guy thought he saw a blemish on the tail of the plane. After that we went to maintenance, after that our flight crew timed out and we went back to the gate, deplaned and waited. Then we got back on THE SAME PLANE and never arrived until 8pm. We should’ve been there at 3pm and lost almost 1/2 a day of our vacation. I will never take this airline again!!!!!"
Pros: "LITERALLY NOTHING Trashiest airline in the world"
Cons: "Customer service, boarding, check in desk, LITERALLY EVERYTHING WAS 3rd CLASS WILL NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN EVEN IF THE TICKE IS FREE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE AND I WILL TELL EVERYONE"
Pros: "The crew ensured that all my needs were met while on the flight. Truly a pleasurable experience."
Cons: "Nothing... Can't exactly shorten the distance."
Cons: "I want to seriously complain about Air Canada and Kayak booking systems. I reserved the tickets to Shanghai but there were no place reminding me that I need Canadian VISA to connect flights between two Canadian cities. I am a Chinese citizen who is working at USA and not allowed to change flights in Canada based on the newest government rules. However, in both booking systems, there is no reminders. In my opinion, either Kayak or Air Canada can add a simple checkbox to let the potential guest choose his or her nationality status, then this kind of trouble can be mitigated. We talked and called Air Canada people but no buying. They kept saying this is our responsibility. We bought United Airline tickets at the last minutes and cost us about $2,400 because we cannot wait to get back China to prepare our wedding ceremony and US Visa interview. We are very very disappointed with Air Canada and will keep complaining about this issue. As a service supplier, how cannot you think on behalf of a customer? The air company definitely knows more about government rules than a customer. We did have mistakes of not researching government rules. However, the biggest mistake was we trusted Air Canada and Kayak who we thought had taken care of those kind of issues for us. Thanks."
Cons: "Air Canada cancelled my original flight and it was difficult to reschedule. Customer service wasn't great."
Cons: "Food was not good. Just filling. Crew was not polite when I asked for more water"
Pros: "Nice crew and service, I ate all the food :) lots of new movies !"
Cons: "I guess it is a good thing for the airline because the plane was full, although it was crowded to me."
Pros: "Overall, flights were ok"
Cons: "4 hour delay in Toronto for our connection."
Pros: "Good meals and services with beverages"
Pros: "Excellent service in business class: attentive, cordial, not intrusive."
Cons: "The Air Canada counter officer do not help me at all. She only told me to call Air Canada which I can not since the Shanghai office is close and the US number did not work. I ended up bought a new ticket with AA."
Pros: "It is always a pleasure to fly with Air Canada! The staff is always friendly and helpful and they provide great in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms on this plane, constant line for bathroom."
Cons: "Everything- packed tight like sardines"
Pros: "Quick professional services"
Pros: "Crew very nice."
Cons: "Boarding staff very unprofessional and not knowledgeable. Didn't tellbus correct info and caused us to muss flight. Had to buy new tickets. Terrible experience! Will never fly again!"
Pros: "Service before boarding was excellent. Checking in as long as the boarding time was efficient and fast. In flight service was okay, flight crew was helpful and friendly. The selection of entertainment was excellent. Good international films, in addition to the monocles 24 hours radio station. However, the food was mediocre, there was not enough food for a flight of 11 hours."
Cons: "I didn't like the amount and selection of food."
Pros: "The ciabatta buns served with the regular meals, looked lovely, as did the regular meat meals. Unfortunately, I ordered the Hindu Vegetarian meal."
Cons: "Usually the Hindu Vegetarian meals are quite nice, but these ones were not. I have eaten a lot of Indian and Middle Eastern food, and I could not identify what this was supposed to be. The basmati rice had the consistency of oatmeal. The first meal was tasteless and the second meal had too much hot spice, but still no flavour. The bread they gave with the meal was tiny and tasteless compared to the lovely ciabatta rolls served with the regular meals."
Cons: "my language has been lost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Movies were nice. The flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "The flight attendants can be nicer. It seems they were bothered when we ask sth. And it took me half an hour to get the entertainment system to work on my computer ( the plug in wouldn't work) but the crew was nice and let me use an iPad for free. But I think people shouldn't have to pay for entertainment on such a long flight when you can fly other planes that don't make you pay."
Pros: "Great service and attention"
Pros: "- On time performance - Friendly crew - Comfortable flights"
Cons: "The gate facility at the Toronto airport was worse than a bus terminal. It was over-crowded and chaotic. Again, we boarded through the tarmac and not through a walkway."
Pros: "Please post meal intentions on-line so I can plan for the possible need to bring food on board. I had repeated instances when my elbow would hit the buttons on the arm rest, thereby changing video/lights/call for help, etc. Poor ergonometric placement."
Pros: "The crew was especially friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Awesome entertainment and tech interface at the seats!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane."
Pros: "Air Canada is not a goo Air Lines for customer service."
Cons: "I do not like there customer service policy."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Would be nice to get notified by email."
Pros: "That it brought me to my destination"
Cons: "I' a small person is this i entirely uncomfortable, so i can't imagine what it's like for bigger ppl. BTW seems like Air Canada was just opening at 4am, so there were huge lines for checkin but no people were attending the Air Canada counters. THen at about 4:30 they all started coming out. For a 6am flight ppl are supposed to be there 2 hours before. I usually don't feel nauseated on planes but I did for this ride."
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Like to be able to pick my seat ahead of time without a charge."
Pros: "Econamy class allows 2 piece of bag."
Cons: "I only have one bag. My bag is weighted 57 lb and charged me CA$100.00. They should have averaged 2 bags' weight and I should not have charged CA$100.00. I think the service is poor."
Pros: "The entertainment was good and the crew was efficient. Getting on and off the plane was smooth."
Cons: "I couldn't believe how little room there was for such a long flight! There wasn't enough room for me to reach my bag that was on the ground even when the seat in front of me wasn't reclined. And the people next to me kept jabbing me with their elbows because three grown adults simply could not sit next to one another in such a small space. I'm a small person so if I feel crammed on a flight I have no idea how the average person can tolerate it!"
Cons: "the gate changed FOUR times and passengers were never notified as there were no crew at the gate. The flight was delayed by two hours. there was no in-flight entertainment on board as it wasn't working. upon landing, we were forced to stay in the plane for an extra 30 minutes because the gate and crew were not ready. I was NOT impressed by this flight and am very upset with how things went. I expected better of AC and will not be flying again with them."
Pros: "Extra leg room even though I had to pay extra for it."
Cons: "Long wait at the Claims Dept. because my luggage was broken."
Pros: "Idont like a bit."
Cons: "It was to noise inside the cabin,no space for my carry onl lggage,they only free coffe or soda,any thing ealse you pay,eg. coffe was cold,next time i will think over before take fly."
Pros: "Good onboard entertainment"
Cons: "Overhead cabin extremely small compare to US planes"
Cons: "On the Montreal-Athens leg the meal was free but of poor quality and quantity. Breakfast was just a piece of banana bread... No entertainment system in the aircraft. Had to rent iPad with very poor quality earphones (struggled to listen to the movies) Also some of the movies were not adjusted for the iPad which translated into using only a portion of the iPad screen."
Pros: "The service was excellent. Our flight into Calgary was delayed due to bad weather in Newark so we missed our connecting flight. Because of this, the airline payed for our hotel room and for a portion of our meals. Everyone was so helpful and kind when it came to answering our questions and helping us make our experience an easier one."
Cons: "No tv but you can use your iPhone/iPad to watch movies but only if you downloaded the app (they only let you know about the app when you're on the plane and you don't have a chance to download it since you don't have Internet), you can rent an iPad for $10 to watch some movies from the '90s. The cabin crew was rude and ignored me when I had a question. Boarding took more than an hour So of course we left late. I would not fly with them again."
Pros: "Crew was nice but customer service at the airport and over the phone is terrible (takes over 30 min to speak with someone and a few times they hang up the phone)"
Cons: "Luggage was delayed for over 36 hours and customer service hotline was useless."
Pros: "Flight got delayed twice I had to go to the airport 3 times, finally the personal change me to another airline. I payed over 250 just in taxi to and from the airpor, plus 300 dollars in hotel reservations plus 250 in tours. The airline other than continue rebooking and printing more and more boarding passes did nothing"

Cons: "map was broken halfway into flight"
Cons: "One hour late due to mechanical issue. There was very crowed thru US custom in Toranto. Took 1.5 hours to completed US custom."
