Pros: "The turkey sandwich was okay."

Extremely disappointed,"
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"

Cons: "Unbearably hot!!"
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "crew was nice and pilot was informative."
Cons: "1. flight was delayed twice, which meant my arrive was delayed in Cincinnati. 2. boarding was a nightmare. After 2 delays, I was crammed into zone 4. I dont fly as often, the seats space seems to be getting smaller. 5. I sat next an overweight person. I didn't like my personal space violated. 6. The flight offer movies, I slept. Yet kept getting elbowed by this overweight neighbor. 7. I am a single, independent person. I prefer to sit near the front. First on and settled and 1st off and gone!"

Pros: "Good films"
Cons: "Seats cramped, legroom bad"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment Nice crew"
Cons: "The Delta seat assignment and boarding process The flight was delayed"
Pros: "Close to on time"
Cons: "No peanuts! Why can't they be an option? 4 hour flight and all we get is snacks? pretty cheap!"
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Kayak should know that. I got about 15 message s from you about a flight that was cancelled 24 hrs ago. That is not helpful."
Pros: "I liked the individual tv screens to watch the latest movies"
Cons: "The slow boarding"
Cons: "They wouldn't deal with any flight changes."

Pros: "Since I am a Silver Medallion Skymiles member, I asked about an upgrade. All seats in First Class were taken, but the agent at the gate seated me in a seat in the front of coach with more legroom (comfort plus? I don't know what they call it). That was great!"
Pros: "First flight"
Cons: "Too packed"
Cons: "Never again!"
Cons: "Delayed over 3 hours with no explanation from Delta or any information. Once boarding finally began, another 30 min went by before they closed the plane again without any explanation. As a connecting flight after a long international flight, it was awful. Unfriendly and impatient staff."
Pros: "Friendly crew and quick boarding process"
Pros: "On time departure, clean plane, competent and professional flight attendants, pilot announcements were clear and relevant"
Cons: "Check in took forever. Delta reservations made some type of mistake when they cancelled our flight to CUN and I needed to rebook the flight. It took the CUN counter agent about 30 minutes to correct their mistake. Then, as we boarded our flight, the bar code reader at the gate indicated another error that the gate agent took about 10 minutes to correct. CUN Delta staff was great and we appreciated the efforts they made to direct us around the airport."
Cons: "I could not print my boarding pass, get it on email, get it at the airport. A waste of their time and mine. And makes no sense. It is some new policy of Delta. Not good"

Cons: "Smooth and enjoyable trip unlike the second leg to Aspen"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours for maintenance. Changed gates 3 times. Not well organized"
Pros: "The crew was very polite and helpful as the flight attendant was still new."
Cons: "It was FREEZING on the plane."
Pros: "One flight attendant who was on a plane not scheduled for this flight (much smaller plane than scheduled) so lots of people left behind. Don't know her name but she had the best personality and really took care of a lot of people not happy being late of stuffed into a very small plane."
Cons: "Delays happen but DCA is a pretty big hub not to have a big enough plane to get passengers on board who are already delays. You had to pay $700 vouchers to a whole bunch of folks so whatever profit was possible went to vouchers instead."

Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times before we even boarded. Then we sat in the plane for an hour."

Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful and very caring, he made a difference in the overall flight. He was super friendly and ensured that I needed everything that I wanted and more."
Cons: "Probably adding personal entertainment on each seat would be great."
Cons: "Check in at Heathrow was a pain. One agent asking questions about where people work and who there manager was. The other not. Having to tag baggage yourself is frustrating, especially when nobody is around to ask questions and ensure it’s done right."
Cons: "The lack of leg room was wild. I’m under six feet tall and my knee caps were in the spinal column of the man sitting in front of me."
Cons: "This plane needs to be retired! It was the most uncomfortable seat I’ve ever had! Also the plane was extremely warm. Like a sweat box or a sauna. Miserable flight. Glad it wasn’t long!"
Cons: "Need to have handheld device to watch entertainment. Terribly uncomfortable. Delay getting out of Dallas."
Pros: "The crew was great. No leg room, seats and isles were too narrow. Had a soggy turkey wrap both going to and coming from Honolulu. It was not what I expected from AA. Will not fly AA again on a long haul."

Pros: "Boarding was fast because over fifty passengers were delayed checking in due to computer problems. Air conditioning was good."
Cons: "Flight delayed almost two hours due to computer problems. Seat pitch (room for knees) very limited, felt like I was packed in like a sardine. Crew should have provided refreshments (not just tepid water) and snacks during the delay. Pilot announced computer problem solved and remaining passengers would be boarding in fifteen minutes which turned out to be closer to an hour."
Cons: "American has lost my bags multiple times and always has delays. They’re domestic planes are dirty and run down. Not a preferred airline for me."
Pros: "The have the lotus cookies which is my favorite ."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very helpful and courteous. Can't ask for more than that."

Pros: "Nothing, they’re awful."
Cons: "American Airlines failed to provide the service we paid for: a flight that arrived home in the morning, so that we could get to work. We had to use vacation days we did not have to spare."
Pros: "On time flight, as comfortable as can be hoped for."
Cons: "This flight was on time, but Dallas to Huntsville is frequently delayed. Also, the airplane is often quite old-appearing on the interior."
Pros: "Crew was nice."

Pros: "The crew were wonderful! Everyone was polite and accommodating. The entertainment available was on point. The food was both tasty and offered often."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Again, it was sold as a British airways flight when it was an American airlines flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."

Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "That we flew over the Atlantic safely. Pleasant enough crew."
Cons: "Very old airplane , the ones with a screen TV in the middle of the airplane."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed overnight in Las Vegas, which was hassle but unavoidable due to weather and pilot flight hours restrictions. But the ground crew and American Airlines worked very hard to compensate all the passengers: gave us each a voucher for hotel, 2 meals, round trip shuttle ride for hotel and airport. Good work to make up for a bad situation."
Pros: "I got to my flight with ease, my flight was on time and the pilot did an excellent job of taking off and a picture perfect landing . The attendants were quick to respond to my needs, ( I needed some trash thrown away and I had a request for coffee)"

Pros: "Quick flight"

Cons: "I'm not sure the stewardess is really a morning person. She wasn't rude or anything, but she wasn't nice either. :)"

Pros: "Nice size plane for this run"
Cons: "Loud high pitched tone in cabin while taxiing"

Substitute flight was next day noon - original offer was for late afternoon flight! That flight had poor service. Attendant dawdled so there were no drinks served."
Pros: "Can’t think of a thing on this flight."
Cons: "Delay after delay. Took way too long for de-icing. The storage compartmemt door got stuck and I could not get my bag out. The flight attendant blamed the issue on my bag. She claimed it was too big. It was not. I have carried the bag on several flights with similar planes, the gate agent slowed it on the plane as many have, and I had no issue opening and closing other compartment as I tried a couple after maintenance retrieved my bag."
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Everything, but mostly the fact that with absolutely zero warning they wouldn't allow my wife to carry on her roller bag.because we purchased economy tickets.

Pros: "The flight was excellent"
Pros: "Easy on ! Organized"
Pros: "Speed of flight"
Pros: "Crew were great."

Cons: "Better foodeal options"
Cons: "I am a school director and had a very important meeting, that's why I had to get to my country and I almost lost my job for losing my flight due to the airline's ineligibility. I did not like the fact that, I didn't know were to go because it was too crowded. every time I ask them to help me, they ether not answers or did not know what to tell me. Every one seen to be very confused. They have very bad costumers service. I even cut myself wile trying to put the bag into the square that they now have, to see if it can go into the airplane.

Cons: "The plane is too small, I'm 6 foot 4 inches tall and there no leg room, my leg was raising the middle arm rest, I apologized to the guy next to me...he was cool about it. The plane does not absorb turbulence very well. That plane is to small for a flight that is a little over 2 hours"
Pros: "I usually fly spirit"
Pros: "The food was tasty for airline food."
Cons: "The tv on the headrest didn't work."
Cons: "Taxied on the tarmac in Chicago for almost as long as we were in the air from South Bend. Arrived too early and there was no gate. By the time we finally deplaned, my next flight was already boarding."
Pros: "Fast. On time. Great service"
Pros: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
Cons: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."

Pros: "Wheels up to wheels down took under 20 minutes."
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and if I would've had to sit on that plane much longer I would've been quite sore. Seats are small, space is exceedingly limited. But, it was a regional jet, so this was to be expected. Nonetheless, other airlines' regional jets haven't been quite so cramped."

Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "comfortable and room for me and carry on"
Cons: "we boarded late. we were told that unless we were ready for take off in 6 minutes we would have to wait 3 hours due to ATC. It created an unnecessary level of worry on the plane.

Pros: "Nothing. Very unhappy"
