Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"
Pros: "We landed safely; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work"
Cons: "Extreme delays; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work; Sitting on the runway/tarmac for hours"
Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "I had to put my carry on item 10 seats behind my seat location. That delayed my leaving of the plane to my next flight."
Cons: "Not enough time in London to change planes. We missed the flight"
Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."
Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."
Pros: "seats comfy, seemed like a newer plane, crew was lovely."
Cons: "usual complaints about domestic flights - not having free headphones and not having free snacks."
Cons: "Middle seat"
Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"
Pros: "Cabin crew attentive. Comfortable seat. Only 2/3 full. Easy boarding and embarking. Overall, value for cost."
Cons: "Food. No individual entertainment unit."
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."
Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"
Cons: "I paid for a non-stop from Seattle to Philadelphia. they cancelled it and only had options that dragged out the trip, caused an extra day of lost work. There was no attempt or offer to ameliorate the inconvenience, or refund the cost -- even an upgrade would have been appreciated. just here's what we have, take it or leave it. I am through with American"
Cons: "No screens, no wifi"
Pros: "Really? I just gave 1 star. Your feedback form should be smart enough to realize that."
Cons: "It's not finnair. It's American Airlines. The sears were so cramped that I have a horrible backache. Stop calling it finnair. Several airlines booked tickets on this flight. There's nothing good to say."
Pros: "Flight was ok, staff was professional and friendly. A good cleaning would be great. I'm average height and light build for a woman but I find the seats really are snugger than ever."
Cons: "AA didn't notify me of their change to my itinerary so I missed my flight, they cancelled my return flight from Europe, and only offered to refund my ticket when I spoke to a supervisor. I drove 5.5 hours to another city to catch a flight to Europe, believing my return ticket was valid as AA first told me, only later to learn they cancelled it. Thanks to AA, I currently I have no return ticket. Others on this flight and on my later Iberia flight were cursing AA loudly so I don't think my issue is an anomaly, but is more likely AA's new standard of conduct."
Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."
Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Good price."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Bags didn't get lost. Pilot and crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Smallest middle seat I've ever sat in. Wifi was $40. Baggage Fees were pricey. No free snacks. No free entertainment options."
Pros: "I know AA and Alask are same company but I bought Alaska ariline ticket and everything I need to deal with is AA. It's too confusing."
Cons: "Too confused!"
Cons: "Fat constantly moving man next to me"
Pros: "free entertainment"
Pros: "Help that I received from check in through security to the gate was awesome. The person who checked me in offered me a wheelchair as it was a pretty long distance to the gate. I don't think that I would have made it all the way without her for thought and help! Same goes after the flight when we landed in Philadelphia. From the plane to gather my luggage and then to the place where my ride could pick me up. Awesome service. The stewards were also very helpful to keep me supplied with ice for my dogs. They get very stressed and tend to overheat. Thanks to a couple of the staff, especially, my dogs stayed very comfortable as well. Other then the fact that they got too warm a couple of times. Will definitely keep American in mind for another flight."
Cons: "I have not got a background in flying. I read the literature in the seat in front of me but I would like to have known sooner that I could turn a knob to help get cool air on my dogs. They were getting very warm and I spent a great deal of time fanning them when I could have just let the air do it's job."
Cons: "No information and made us wait about 3 hours past departure time to tell us the flight was delayed until the next day, but did not even know at what time or why!!! It really messed up it vacation since we were going to Florida for only 3 days!"
Cons: "They boarded group 1 all at once. I was group 2. They boarded all of us all at once. It was a cluster!. I haven't flew in 6 years. But when I did they boarded by so many rows. Not all at once . Boarding was horrible. It was like a cattle drive."
Pros: "Just wish the boarding was better"
Pros: "The price was right! Connection in Chicago was a little tight but overall a good flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for an hour after we landed. Missed my connection, no other flights that night. It wasn't even 10 pm yet."
Cons: "I'm not sure why I paid Alaska Airlines, and received confirmation emails from Alaska Airlines, but whenever I went to check in for my flights Alaska Airlines couldn't do anything for me. Instead all they did was tell me to go to American Airlines if I wanted help. I gave you my money Alaska Air.. how about you help me?"
Cons: "Our flight from Seattle to JFK was delayed over 11 hours, not because of weather or mechanical issue, but because a flight attendant fell ill and American Airlines had no one to take his or her place. They had to fly in an employee from Texas to cover the shift. Are you kidding me? I understand there are unforeseen events but any reputable airline should have a personnel contingency plan better than that. As a result, we lost a whole day of our vacation, missed our Broadway performance, and others missed their business meetings. All the alerts informing us of the delay were sent long after they already occurred. I will avoid flying American again at all costs."
Pros: "Flight attendants and boarding personnel are very friendly."
Cons: "Mediocre food and entertainment. Internet price are ridiculous compared to competitors ( just flew SouthWest - so much better). Cost at about $6 for a half-hour. They had to bring the cleaning crew back on to clean parts of the plane - it was to dirty for anyone to sit in one row."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The pilot told us what landmarks we were flying over as well as weather, altitude updates and arrival times."
Pros: "The captain of the plane did a phenomenonal job communicating with the passengers on board. He provided us information on location, altitude, and let us know when to expect turbulence which I thought was great, as many do not communicate much with the passengers. Also the plane was in good conditions and was comfortable."
Cons: "They lied to us in the pieces of luggage free of charge in international flights (asked at the phone), and charged us $25.00 per each piece of luggage."
Pros: "relatively quiet for a redeye, seats were made out of a decent leather like material, TVs in the back of each seat along with charging inputs"
Cons: "AA version of the 737 is very cramped, small seats with little room and very upright, barely recline if at all. Also, unlike other airlines they installed metal boxes underneath the seats for the life vests which take up a third of your leg room. Overhead air barely blows and the overall temp was a little too warm for comfort even while just wearing shorts and a T-shirt. Lights were bright for first half of the trip until they finished drink service even though flight started at midnight."
Pros: "There isn't much to like about a red eye flight. It got us home. We selected it based on price and schedule."
Cons: "Crew made one pass thru cabin with a mini bag of pretzels and one pass thru with beverage. Never saw them again but perhaps that is the norm for AA. No so with other carriers we have flown red eyes on. Always tough getting a good connection when flying west to east"
Cons: "5 gate changes and 1 hour 20 minute delay!"
Pros: "Everyone from the woman checking boarding passes at the gate to the pilot himself, was friendly, jovial, and light. Very relaxing trip, I just felt very welcome by everyone."
Cons: "Nothing at all. Well, it'd be nice if ALL seats were 1st class size, lol."
Cons: "flight was delayed. long overlay. uncomfortable plane from lac to fat."
Pros: "I had really awful sinus pain on the flight and the crew was very helpful and sympathetic"
Cons: "The entertainment system was pretty lame (DirectTV) and of course the now-typical lack of food and beverage items for domestic flights"
Cons: "This was just so awful! I was so disappointed because I have heard good things about United. The seats I paid extra for were ridiculously small, no leg room at all! Then the plug for earbuds was broken, so I was unable to watch movies or listen to music. I am really dreading the trip back!"
Pros: "I was asleep for most of the flight so I missed any food & did not use the internet. I consider an uneventful flight as a great experience :)"
Cons: "At 1 am, SEA TAC had a 20 minute delay for air traffic!"
Cons: "Worst flight experience ever."
Pros: "Nothing great, nothing bad. took off and landed on time."
Cons: "paced seats, nit enough room for carry ons."
Pros: "Gates for connecting were close and even with delay, I made it on time."
Cons: "Flight delay, that made the short connection even shorter"
Cons: "Gate crew didn't help much with seating or connecting flights. Staff almost never smiled, and when boarding the plane instead of a, "hello" or "good morning", there were two attendants staring at their phones. They looked up when I greeted first, but seemed put off a touch. They also switched the seating without telling us ahead of time, so my husband and I had to sit in middle seats, apart from each other on our anniversary trip. Very unhelpful and unfriendly when I inquired to change."
Cons: "The plane was delayed in WA DC and the staff did nothing to help with transfers in Addis Ababa and I missed my connection."
Pros: "Atleast 2/3 movies free"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment"
Cons: "Now Sherry in any documentation I received did it say that my flight was operated by United airlines. I waited at ANA check in until within the 2 hour window and went around and asked someone at United who confirmed that they were partners with ANA."
Pros: "How they gave me exit row seats and flifht crew was good"
Cons: "Your check in ticket counter workers in SEA airport.. there was a married couple who was very rude and because i could not get a "prepaid card" but had 25 for my bag the man said "well i guess you are not going" excuse me?! I paid over 200 for my ticket!! Luckily there was a nice polynesian young man who stepped in and helped right away. That couple made my experience HORRIBLE! I do want something done about that! I almost missed a very important event and they looked to be arguing with each other! They need to keep their personal stuff at home! I was so mad.however, the flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Delayed because of no crew members"
Pros: "Access to in flight entertainment."
Cons: "Air vent pressure was lacking Cramped quarters but it is expected in economy."
Pros: "Delays 2 hours"
Pros: "Good flight and good crew."
Pros: "Everything went by smoothly, no problems"
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "The staff was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was late but that was at no fault to the airline."
Pros: "The seat itself was comfortable but the leg room for my taller companion was a bit tight."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight and on the outgoing flight not even a snack was offered. On the return flight a very small bag of spicy pretzel bits was offered. When I went to get on the return flight I had a small sling purse, a small yarn bag (both hung on the same arm) and a bag of food for the lunch they wouldn't serve me. I was told I couldn't get on the flight with 3 bags, even though all 3 would fit under the seat. The free entertainment contained a grey box over part of the image reminding I could pay for more. Was only given a tiny glass of soda, I remember when they would give a can. I will consider another airline in the future."
Cons: "4.5 hr.delay due to crew unavailability."
Pros: "Nice leg room courteous attendants"
Cons: "Pay to watch all tv? Not worth the charge"
Pros: "BEFORE BOARDING, THE STAFF WAS SUPER FRIENDLY AND ACCOMMODATING"
Pros: "Everything not TSA related."
Cons: "The racist OKC TSA. The line was moving along and the TSA agent sitting behind the podium checking boarding passes put his hand up and asked me to wait there. There weren't that many people in the lines, so I was wondering why. His partner at the other podium watched him quizzically, as did I, as he paced left and right, looking at nothing then sat back down again and stared at nothing. All the while the line for screening grew smaller and smaller. The other agent asked him, "what are you doing?" He responded by saying, "You said you were getting THEM all." I didn't understand, but clearly there was some subtext that I was not privy to. She shook her head and said, come up here sweetie. Then she managed to do what he obviously couldn't do: his job. Then my girlfriend and I proceeded to be profiled and had our bags searched. If I didn't have to be in OKC I would avoid that airport like the plague. Unprofessional."
Cons: "Sat next to a very large man with injured shoulder whichave has five pens in it"
Pros: "Boarding. Crew friendly"
Cons: "Uncomfortable tight seats. Overpriced entertainment cost"
Pros: "The captain kept us informed, the flight attendants were simply amazing, going above and beyond to ensure the best flight possible."
Cons: "The plane was delayed twice. The crew members at the terminal did nothing to explain why. I do know that in their world things like this happen, but in the customer's world, things like this can really mess up someone's day, so simple periodic updates as well as one genuine apology for the inconvenience would have made things a whole lot better."
Cons: "Lost my second flight because first one late, got a standby ticket for next flight, but the plane was full, was hungry, no money to spend in airport restaurants, United company should provide at least a breakfast for this inconvenience. Next flight will be with another company for sure."
Pros: "I am 5 foot 6 and my knees hit the seats in front of me. Seat did not recline. Sucked."
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating."
Cons: "I was seated in the economy section. It was quite uncomfortable for a four hour flight. I'm 5'9" and didn't have enough space to stretch in the 737. I felt bad for the middle seat section because there was no room at all. I had an aisle seat and still didn't have enough room the stretch. There was no food or snacks served but the crew did offer free drinks: oj, tea, water, or soda. if you can upgrade to economy plus it's definitely worth it. Spend the money for it. You will have more leg room for sure."
Cons: "One of two people bumped. I missed a ceremony with my father at the Naval Base due to the delay. We are both military and have had limited time together over the last two years. The $200 voucher does not cover the missed time I had planned with my family."
Pros: "Everything was great! Was even early, flight staff was very pleasant."
Pros: "Friendliness of the crew...leg room ....excellent, could stretch my legs out and was not cramped."
Cons: "Paying 30.00 for each bag and was not give the whole soda when offereda soda"
Cons: "It was cancelled morons."
Pros: "The flight at 7:10 am was delayed due to computer troubles. I had to be re routed because I was going to miss my connection flight in San Fran. I was able to be added to a Delta Flight direct to Philly at 11:45 am."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. Minimal customer service."
Cons: "Rude lady serving and no tv options"
Pros: "Beverage service"
Cons: "The seats were so narrow and uncomfortable that it was impossible to enjoy the flight"
Pros: "Being appeased lead to over a two hour delay. That lead to me miss my connecting flight & missing work later on that day."
Pros: "They had a backup plane and tried to get us out of Seattle as soon as possible"
Cons: "How they were overbooked and we had a delay due to maintenance so some people missed their connection flight from Chicago. It was just a hectic flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant didn't address that someone else was in my seat when I got on the plane. I specifically picked two seats next to each other because the person I was traveling with has anxiety while flying. If other passengers hadn't willingly changed their seats then we wouldn't have sat together. I told the flight attendant and she dismissed me entirely. Also they packed is all in even though the exit row seats were completely filled. I think they should've just allowed some to have those seats for the comfort of the rest of us"
Pros: "Everything this was one of the worse companies that I have ever delt with. Both in and out of travel. Customer service was completely rude and inconsiderate and the "supervisor" that hung up on out phone calls 3 times was completely disrespectful with our issue. I will never be traveling with this company again."
Cons: "Everything this was one of the worse companies that I have ever delt with. Both in and out of travel. Customer service was completely rude and inconsiderate and the "supervisor" that hung up on out phone calls 3 times was completely disrespectful with our issue. I will never be traveling with this company again."
Pros: "Cheap and non stop, free chargers"
Cons: "Allowed people to put personal items and carry ons in overhead bins which forced some to check bags. Internet option is useless without Hulu, Netflix support."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "It took forever to board, was completely booked. No snacks, no entertainment, jampacked plane with no leg room. The wi-fi was not working."
Pros: "I liked that it was a plane that flew me to my destination."
Cons: "The seating was tighter than I could handle. I'm a 6'1 175 lb male and I felt like my knees were going to pop out the other end of the seat. Like sure you try and maximize profits with a ton of rows, but you're going to lose customers like me do to the lack of space."
Cons: "I actually threw up on the plane is was so bad."
Pros: "When it was over."
Cons: "ran out of room for carry-on too fast - full by 2nd main group boarding"
Pros: "Staff very patient."
Cons: "Computer issue with three recounting of passengers. Missed connecting flight."
