Cons: "The flight was delayed due to several mechanical issues but the ground crew did not communicate effectively on the issue or how long the delay would be. I understand that these issues occur, but better communications and empathy from the ground crew would have gone a long way. Boarding was also a disaster because everyone tried to board at the same time and again, the ground crew did nothing to control the situation."
Pros: "Nice people at the counter in Paris!"
Cons: "How They managed the cancellation!!!very poor! Send to Miami!!!very desagreable people at the counter there! No one flight was in time going to Europe!!! I arrived a day later !missed my train connection to Strasbourg.!!!! Coming back could not confirm my flight because the page did not allowed me to do so.....my place was all ready given!!"

Cons: "No notification that boarding was delayed No in seat entertainment Older seats were not comfortable"
Pros: "I slept the entire duration."
Pros: "This was a sold out flight, however, the flight crew remained professional, friendly and efficient, and we departed and arrived on schedule. The seating was the same as every other airline - not roomy enough. On the bright side, I've had more than a few meals on international flights with six or more other airlines and this was the best meal service so far. Dinner was very tasty!"
Cons: "Poor choice and food"
Pros: "Piolet tried to fly higher and faster to reduce time. Good job"
Cons: "Flight delayed by over hour. Desk crew could have been there to help us make decisions but were not. There was no one to ask about connecting flight gates. When we got off in philly there was someone to give directions to connecting flights. That was too little too late . If we had not on our own looked up connection gate and map of the airport andwould have had to stand in line to ask we would have missed our international connection."
Pros: "Very prompt"
Cons: "Staff were short with passengers, and one was quite rude to an older gentleman."
Pros: "Courteous crew, easy experience smooth "get in and get out" process"
Cons: "Flight was late due to weather but that's beyond anyone's control obviously"
Pros: "it was a reasonably priced flight, so I guess having to put up with the delay and a cramped plane is what you should expect"
Cons: "the fact that we were delayed for over 3 hours (mechanical? then switched plane). The plane itself was really cramped - I realize you have to put up with that on domestic flights, but international, really??? American should figure out other ways to cut costs."
Pros: "plenty of leg room. very little turbulence. fight staff was very professional. staff was very responsive to assist me in finding my passport which I had left on the plane after I had left the plane and gotten to my connecting flight."
Cons: "I wasn't pleased with the snacks. I recommend changing to different snack options; perhaps fruit snacks or nuts."
Pros: "They have a huge selection of movies"
Cons: "They do not have gluten free options"
Pros: "The trip from st martin was fine in terms of check in. AA opened their windows early so we beat the crowd."
Cons: "The plane left 20 minutes late, and then we hit turbulence and a bit of rain close to our arrival in Charlotte. I had originally booked a flight through Miami with plenty of layover time to get a connecting flight to Dallas, but AA canceled that one and put me on a connection the following day! When I called customer service, they were helpful in regards booking and assured me there would be plenty of time to connect through Charlotte. When our plane landed 35 minutes late, there was only 15 minutes to connect, and we waited for baggage that whole time. No idea what took baggage so long, but the result is that we missed our flight. AA did put us on standby for the next one, but that meant our relative had to pick us up at midnight."
Pros: "Well organised and even arrived early! The flight crew were kind and efficient."
Cons: "No free food"
Cons: "One miserable pack of coffee cookies for $700+ ticket. I don't expect a 3 course meal on a 3 hour flight but seriously a pack of cookies? Too bad if one follows a gluten free diet."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "Seat 17F is very short on leg room for a 6 foot man. Flight attendants didn't care and rough landing; pilot needs more practice."
Pros: "We had a good flight home everything was good going was a terrible flight a lot of turbulence and attendance weren't very friendly"
Cons: "No tv.. Rude customer service n my luggage got lost.. I will make to stay away from aa"
Cons: "Didn't have food or entertainment so I was neither pleased or displeased."
Pros: "That plane took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Flight to philly, waited 3 hours on the plane before take off because of holes in the plane. Flight to dallas, waited 2 hours on the plane because the plane in front of us on the runnway wasn't clear for take off, we were and they couldn't taxi them out of the way?! Missed my connection and a day of work had to pay for a hotel. I only have so much $. I'm not and AA CEO."
Cons: "Poor legroom"
Cons: "Once again the boarding process was a mess. No clear directions given on when groups should board so everyone from every group bombarded the gate. This slowed down finding overhead bin space and getting seated for everybody. Delayed everything when there was such an easy solution."
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "The lack of organization at he moment of boarding generates problems with the passengers .. A lady started to get angry when group 3 was boarding and she was group 2. She was waiting were group 3 was in line .. It would be better to have it like united that they have lines for all groups."
Pros: "Boarding was pleasant, flight attendant was very nice. Served several snacks and choice of drinks."
Cons: "no entertainment"
Pros: "Entertainment and great beverage options"
Pros: "I like how they kept us updated on when the flight would leave"
Cons: "I didn't like that it took so long for us to actually get on the plane. My flight was supposed to leave around 4pm but it didn't actually leave till around 9pm so I had to sleep overnight when we landed in Dallas"
Pros: "Very nice cabin crew, attentive and informative. The pilots really put me at ease....not the best flyer but their information on the flight etc. was actually quite calming."
Cons: "An alternative to pretzels!"
Pros: "I was in group 2"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Then we all were told to re-ticket at customer service. Waited on the line for 2 hours to get a stand by ticket for the next flight. Luckily I was the second from the last that got the seat, or else I would have to wait for the next flight which would take even longer than just drive to Vegas myself. I asked customer service to accommodate me with some food coupon since I had to wait for the next flights...they said they don't have that kind of accommodation, really?!!!"
