The seat back TV was great rather than wifi movies. Easier to get on.
My seat was changed from window to middle. I do not like sitting in the middle which is why I chose a window seat.
Layovers at DFW should account for delays and terminal distances.
Cons: "Too much to write down. Start at the counter and work yourself to the plane. I hope you get it right eventually, I’ll be flying Southwest"
Cons: "San Salvador gate is to small, everybody on top of each other"
Pros: "The Captain was courteous and the flight itself was good."
Cons: "There was a barking dog on the flight that was very high pitched. The stewardess was not polite, kept repeating herself and her voice was like the teacher you never wanted to have. The WiFi did not work. We had to wait for a gate approximately 30 minutes when we reached DFW."
Pros: "Crew excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was crowded!"
Cons: "typical poor computer jet poor experience. Now no service"
Cons: "Hard landing on arrival in Philadelphia."

Cons: "Better control and seating of families with little kids."
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The plane could have arrived on time, made sure everything worked fine, and got me to my destination like they said they were going to... instead, stand by for a different flight was not what I paid for... but it is what I got."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "AC power. Seat back TVs."
Pros: "Great attend ants"

Cons: "No seatback TVs."
Pros: "I liked everything"
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."
Cons: "waiting on runwat for 30 minutes"
Pros: "Great service and sweet attendants"
Cons: "Person next to me was a little large and it was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Over 90 minutes delay on arrival time on a less than 2 hours flight"
Cons: "I didn't like that it was delayed. But it was not their fault because it was the thunderstorms that held us up."
Cons: "Delayed for mechanical."
Pros: "I loved the attitude and helpful approach of the female flight attendant working the AA gate for the flight I took from DFW to COS last night (6/13). Truthfully, it was almost like I was back with Southwest. She was kind, calm, polite, efficient, and capable. Very rare in my experience with American Airlines yesterday. Interacting with her was refreshing."
Cons: "Getting home to Colorado Springs at 11:30 PM, taxiing for 15-20 minutes, and then waiting another 20-30 for checked luggage! Never have I waited that long during and after a Southwest flight! AA could truly learn something from their more modest counterpart. I have all but decided to resume my drives to Denver every other week rather than risk more and more time and poor experiences with AA flying in-and-out of Colorado Springs."
Pros: "There was an excellent selection of movies to choose from. The seats were pretty nice and clean and modern. A power outlet at every seat, and not just USB."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to paperwork and some people were racing to their connecting flights. Lots of turbulence. The seats seemed comfortable at first, but actually hurt my tailbone pretty quickly, while the 17 hour flight we took next did not. Tray tables are the folding kind and a bit awkward. We were in the last row by the bathrooms and our seats didn't recline at all. You had to pay for any kind of snacks other than a little bag of pretzels and a package of cookies. We were in one of the last two boarding sections, and the woman letting us on the plane tried to make us check out carry-on luggage, stating that the overhead bins were full. Well, we didn't want to be without our bags for the next 24 hours, so we argued and she let us "try" to bring them on. There was PLENTY of room back there! It's just the standard line they feed, apparently, so beware if you're sitting in the back of the plane!"
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks. Flight was late"
Pros: "All went well and without incident. Friendly crew. Easy On, easy off."
Pros: "I liked that the internet connection was free because I am a T-Mobile customer."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was a bit clumsy. I felt like everyone was tripping over each other since the front of the plane was boarding first."
Cons: "Cancelled flight. Booked on another 2.5 hrs later. Seating not until the last moment. No human touches... all mechanical / perfunctory."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No safety briefing for infants, rude gate staff, primitive fleet, terrible customer service at all levels."
Pros: "The plane was clean and the crew was ecxellent"
Cons: "Very skimpy on room in and around eat. Aisle very narrow."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and the gates were so crowded. Plane was very crowded, my luggage almost went missing"
Cons: "It took so long for me to leave this airport. I got there around 11:30pm and my flight wasn't till around 9:45am the next day and so when it came to that time they had cancelled my flight so I got another ticked for around 2pm and they didn't board that flight till around 4:30. My experience there was to much to handle. I was supposed to get to Colorado Friday night but didn't even get here time Saturday afternoon. Really upsetted me because I leave wednsday so I don't have enough time to be with my boyfriend. I honestly don't think I'll be flying American Airlines again"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and the plane was on time."
Cons: "I tried to switch my flight to an earlier time. First, they charge $75 (Southwest is always free). Second, the gate agent charged me and let me board, but her boss came on the plane and pulled me off because I wasn't Executive Platinum status! The plane took off with an empty seat and I had to wait two more hours for the first flight. When I complained to AA about it, they sent me a $50 voucher. I don't plan on giving any business to AA for the rest of my life."
Pros: "I fell asleep on the trip so that was nice."
Cons: "The seats are pretty uncomfortable for tall people."
2 hour delay and then 15 min taxi to the gate just to be told a big pile of snow was blocking the gate.
Not being delayed 3 hrs because of United’s inability to book crew.
Pros: "Seats were ok."
Cons: "Crew was very grumpy and not accommodating to families (ours and others). No wifi or outlets."
Pros: "Flight was quick"
Cons: "better coffee"
Cons: "Gate checked baggage took forever to be brought to the jetway. I’ve been on several UA flights. It seems to be a major problem with UA and their contractors. They don’t load bags quickly."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cheap seats. And why were we not seated together when we booked way in advance?"
Pros: "Everything was as pkanned"
Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot and attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Rules are rules. Yet, at least ten people brought on more than the designated one carry-on bag and purse. Flight attendants shouldn't have to deal with those poorly mannered passengers who think they deserve special treatment. Otherwise, it was all fine."
Pros: "Crew was nice, boarding okay speed."
Cons: "The plane was in poor repair. Seats were frayed, overhead panels were bent or broken on the ceiling, floor dirty, air not working... Old planes can still be old AND well kept. I was told I could have a carry-on, but at the gate, I was told that all bags would need to be checked. My "carry-on," which met criteria, came back bent AF with items missing."
Pros: "The crew service in the airplane, it was clean and the were very nice."
Cons: "The service in the gate, I tried to explained her that when the plane land in Washington My connection will be already boarding and she didn't do anything to help. I asked her to check my bags complimentary so I could be able to run and she said no."
Cons: "No refund, no compensation, no apology....just too bad."
Cons: "Took forever to get off the plane because there was some problem with the baggage that was holding up all the planes. Not the airline’s fault, rather the airport."
Pros: "Helpful staff and smooth flight. No connections or Hassels"
Pros: "The flight attendant used my name. Great landing."
Cons: "Tar mat loading. In flight service."
Pros: "Our flight attendants were the best!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed but we didn't find out until we all boarded and then we all had to get off and re board about 15 minutes later. Some missed connecting flights. Seems like they need to work on communication."
Pros: "They were very friendly and helpful to unapproved toddlers and while we waited on the tarmac for incrlemnt weather (not United’s fault)."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Seating and maybe some different reading material"
Pros: "I enjoy flying, despite the security checks, secondary security checks, the general lax nature of TSA agents who care not when your flight is leaving or how inconvenient it is to have to unpack your entire bag to show them a bar of soap is not, in fact, a plastic explosive. I do like to fly, but it seems to be increasingly difficult to adhere to the rules properly."
Cons: "I was in line to board with group 4 and the woman in front of me had a large duffle bag, a purse, and 3 small grocery bags. The gate agent let her through, but told her to consolidate her bags. I had one carry on and one purse and was forced to gate check my bag, only to find out I would have to go to baggage claim to pick it up. If the woman in front of me was forced to adhere to the rules, I would likely have fit my bag into an overhead. UNFAIR."
Pros: "On time, crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I'm 6"1 and there's no leg room for at all!"
Pros: "Wi if!"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats"

Cons: "Very bumpy ride....but I realize that can't be helped"
Pros: "Rude boarding employee- Rude in general on phone with United Got to my confirmation code after having to change my flight and we got disconnected- didn't call me back when he had my number. Lost the connection"

Pros: "We got home! After canceled flights on other airlines, United got us home safely. There were delays and turbulence, but we all landed safely."
Pros: "Everything was on time. Had enough time to get breakfast before departing. The stroopwaffle is awesome."
Cons: "Very cramped plane. Very hot in the cabin. And veneration wasn't good, cabin smelled like farts. The bathroom door lock was broken and didn't close all the way either. Had to gate check my bag again."
Cons: "United cancelled our first flight, and would not re-book us on another flight until 24 hours later, so we ended up having to drive from Washington DC to Savannah for an event. Instead of cancelling just the first leg of our flight, they cancelled the return trip as well, and then tried to charge us the difference because we were "booking at the last minute". United really is the worst airline, and we will never fly with them again."
Pros: "My flight has a delay and i miss my connection to my second flight. I need to book an hotel room and that was not in my budget."
Cons: "Cancelled and automatically booked with no option for a refund unless I waited seven hours in line at 1 AM. Ridiculous especially given demver's proximity to the springs. WEBSITE NEEDS A STREAMLINED REFUND OPTION FOR AUTOMATICALLY REBOOKED FLIGHTS."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so I'm on stand by for who knows when"
Pros: "Both flights were early landing which was nice everything moved smoothly"

Pros: "Flew on Delta Airlines"
Cons: "Had to run to Delta and barely made that connection."
Cons: "The flight was extremely late and completely upset my travel schedule. It cost me extra money to get to my final destination on-time. The worst travel experience I have had. The airlines did not communicate AT ALL regarding the delays that they knew about."
Pros: "Updated interior. Those new seats make it feel like a lot more room."
Pros: "Larger plane, great comfort. Nice staff!"
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi, nothing to look at during flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Boarding was 15-20 minutes late, no one at the counter. Bumpy flight due to turbulence due to weather."
Pros: "Everything went well. No problems. Left and arrived on time."
Pros: "It was a direct flight from Chicago to Savannah."
