Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Our MAD-JFK flight was delayed and we weren’t going to make our connection, so American Airlines automatically rerouted us through Philapdelphia, and got us to Indy just two hours and thirty minutes later than our original arrival time. I was very pleased wiht this service"
Pros: "Flight was under booked so there was plenty of room."
Cons: "Crew was unexpectedly loud/chatty with one another throughout the flight, even when things were quite and calm they were calling over our heads to one another and laughing loudly. Initially, it's an international flight from Spain and no crew members in my section atleast could speak Spanish. I had to help a passenger who only spoke spanish because the attendant kept repeating an order in english, just getting louder each time."
Cons: "48 hours to get to Philadelphia from Madrid. First flight was cancelled due to plane mechanical problems. Then flight diverted due to bad weather. Horrible flight."
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Offered ice after I burned and blistered my finger on the overhead light because it was so hot because it was so old. Pilot got me safely to my destination."
Cons: "-A line of agents asking for passports to even enter the area where American Airlines is located. Crazy security for no reason. -Tiny seats -No legroom for an 8 hour flight -No creature comforts or modern day technology like personal TV's or charging ports. Only 3 Small TV's along the the middle aisle. I remember flying on a plane like this in 1986. Played movies from 2012. Smurfs? Really? -No headphones offered -Burned my finger on the overhead light!!! Still have a blister!"
Pros: "Trip on time"
Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Upgrade from cloth seats was nice."
Cons: "The food wasn't terribly tasty or filling. Also, it was freezing - with a blanket, sweater and scarf on."
Pros: "The attendants helped you with all your needs. They were professional and fluent in the languages necessary to help the passengers. Very impressed"
Cons: "Good was good. Snacks and beverages were awesome."
Cons: "I paid hard-earned money for an expensive flight to Madrid. Not only were we very delayed on the way there, we were also delayed on the way back. We spent 3 hours back and forth on the tarmac stuck on an old bus in 100+ degree weather being delivered conflicting information, summed up to the seats being "broken". We got a "bathroom break" during which was talked to very rudely by the flight attendant at the gate, and then was almost left behind by the bus on the tarmac. Additionally, once we got onto the plane, it was extremely old (I'm talking no TV's, ashtrays on seats, filthy tables, dirty seats). To top it off, when I went to the restroom in the middle on the flight, I saw flight attendants drinking Tito's and soda in the back in the plane and talking loudly. I am not usually one to complain- but this was a particularly bad experience and terrible ending to my vacation."
Cons: "Due to what had happened in Alicante and having to purchase a new ticket for Rosario IBERIA told us they could not issue a boarding pass due to the fact that the flight from Madrid to JFK was on American Airlines. Once we arrived in Madrid it was very nerve wrecking because we had to go to several places in and explain everything and we needed to do a lot of running in order to make it to our flight on time, all this with two small children and people that were so unwilling to help"
Pros: "Everything was awful about the flight."
Cons: "The crew members were extremely rude, especially, Michelle and Micheal they should not be on long flights with such awful attitudes. None of the tv's, usb charging Ports worked. AA was the worst airline to fly overseas. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew besides the message below. Still one of my favorite airlines!"
Cons: "Crew made too many announcements that were commercial. The volume of the announcements was out of sync with the inflight entertainment audio and hurt my ears."
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary, which for plane flights is about as good as it gets. No delays, no scares, no extra inconveniences."
Cons: "It's a transatlantic plane flight, not anything I'd describe as a fun experience."
Cons: "Was disappointed to learn after buying a British airways ticket that we were only on American Airlines flights. The seats were very uncomfortable and we did not get personal screens which seems uncommon for an international flight."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Food service was efficient and not delayed."
Cons: "Crew asked us to close window shades , so others could watch TV. It was difficult to find things under seat and reading light not as good as real light. Also we think 9 hours of darkness contributed to our difficulty in adjusting to time zone in states. My entertainment panel was very difficult to use and frustrating. It didn't respond to light touch, heavy touch, etc."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had the row to myself and got to stretch out. Great selection of movies. Decent food."
Cons: "One FA seemed visibly annoyed with me; I'm honestly not sure what I did. I am a FA for another airline; didn't identify myself as such but always make sure to not be "that passenger." During two beverage services she did not ask me if I wanted anything but simply looked at me with disdain and sighed loudly. She wasn't rude; just not friendly and I never once saw her smile. She seemed tired and annoyed. I understand that feeling. I've been a FA for 16 years, still junior at my company, but it reminded me how important body language and facial expressions are when we work hospitality and customer service in the public eye. I hope everything is ok with her and I'm sorry if I did something that irritated her. I didn't get her name."
Pros: "New aircraft, very comfortable"
Cons: "The Flight Attendants were HORRIBLE. They were rude and dismissive to all passengers, One in particular (Suzette) actually made a passenger sitting next to me cry. I was embarrassed to be an American. It was a nightmare of a flight because of the flight attendants."
Pros: "The inflight crew was outstanding!"
Pros: "That the flight was not full and staff were just great very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "All good on this flight."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"
Cons: "Toilet was broken causing long wait time Tv's didn't work causing for a very long flight Many things in restroom were also not working"
Cons: "Just a suggestion, if you get new planes it is very comfortable when the seats have a bending headrest. It really helps to hold the head, especially nice for red eye flights."
Pros: "The crew was one of the best flight crews I have ever met! We had many of the same attendants on the flight back to MIA, as well. Give them raises!"
Pros: "Staff was pretty good, and while the food wasn't incredible, it wasn't bad."
Cons: "I hold the personal opinion that the headrests on transatlantic seats should be the sort that prevent one's head from falling to the side. It seemed like this was a domestic plane assigned to an international route."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Attendants very good."
Cons: "Everything fine."
Cons: "Not able to check backpack."
Pros: "Madrid to Charlotte personal was very good but Charlotte to Atlanta was completely the opposite."
Cons: "The Charlotte - Atlanta portion! Flight attendance were like doing a favor... very bad service."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The entertainment touch screens are HORRIBLE! It can take up to a minute to get the button you are pushing to respond. It was this way on both AA flights I had (different planes). Also, when the captain or flight attendant chimes in with a message when you are watching a movie, the volume of the announcement is incredibly loud. Last, there was no WiFi available on the plane. It was a 9 hour flight and this is 2016."
Pros: "Nice food service."
Cons: "It wasn't British Airways. I had to hurry to American after being told at the check it was a different airline."
Pros: "Take off delayed, poor comfort, service was not good and the entertainment system was not individual"
Cons: "Take off delayed, poor comfort, service was not good and the entertainment system was not individual"
Pros: "Flight was not full so i got two seats to myself. Movie selections was great, and crew was great ."
Cons: "-AC was way too high. -Blanket was way too small and thin. Only cover half of my body and they didn't have any extra blankets -There was no free movie available on a flight that's over hrs long. -I got sick because it was so cold"
Pros: "Great service, good food, even had an ice cream break. Awesome."
Cons: "Gate assignment was 45 minutes from the check-in area. Would be nice to have that heads up a day or two earlier. We had enough time but the extra time that we thought we had built in."
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Charlotte. I am still waiting for it one day later."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing, very friendly, and really went out of their way to make it more pleasant"

Cons: "Noisy, hard to sleep even with earplugs and eye shades. Unruly children."
Pros: "No problems flight wise. Made it safely overseas."
Cons: "Grumpy and impatient flight attendants, particularly with the gentleman who only spoke Spanish next to me. Worse was the nearly two-hour line to check our baggage and check in for our flights! Total mayhem."
Pros: "Entertainment was good but the system had to be rebooted two times as it was getting stuck."
Cons: "crew was more about relaxing themselves vs. worried about passengers. Wrong priorities! They ran out of food choice by the time they got to our seating area which was at half point of the plane!"

Cons: "i asked if my children could peek into cockpit and flight crew said no."

Pros: "The flight, boarding and arrival, was smooth and friendly."
Cons: "The notification through Kayak or Finnair was severely delayed."
Pros: "Very convenient"
Cons: "Plane was really old. Shook a lot from turbulence. TV was very old with the same 8 movies there and back. My screen was actually so dim (with the brightness turned up 100%), that I couldn't even watch anything on the way to madrid"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Total confusion about tickets. Last minute shift to Iberian Airlines and time change. No coordination between airlines on boarding passes. Took 2 hours to check in at Madrid airport and still wrong. Worst airline food in over 40 years of flying. Miami airport filthy."
