Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Newer plane, pretty comfortable seats. I like the 2-4-2 seat alignment. Flight arrived at destination about 30 minutes early."
Cons: "I could not access the games the lady next to me, and others were playing. When I decided to watch movies the earphones were so small they kept falling out of my ears, and I am a small woman. It was a long flight from Tokyo to Dallas, and the lack of diversion became a major irritant."
Pros: "Nice Asian stewardess made up for the rude tall bald African-American male Stuart who was snapping his fingers and literally yelling at me for no reason! I turned around and walked away to avoid conflict. He was being overly dramatic and completely rude and several people clapped when I responded"
Cons: "One particular steward mentioned above could adjust his attitude and be polite to his guests. He had no reason to be overly dramatic and excited nevertheless yell at clients!"
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Cons: "Baggage claim was terribly slow and we were director the wrong carousel."

Cons: "Plane late to take off because caterer was late"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Honestly. Nothing."

Cons: "Why did you remove T-Mobile!?? It was the best, bring it back"

Pros: "Price was great and the boarding process went by smoothly. The flight was pretty full, so I was able to check my carry-on at the gate for free. The crew and agents were friendly and professional."
Cons: "The complimentary snack was somewhat lacking and the in flight entertainment required you to use your own device, but I did not see any place to charge my devices, so I didn't end up using it and using up all my battery life."

Cons: "Delays! A few hours. There were liars among their staff!"
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: "I know there is little to be done about who you get seated next to. I also know you do your best with full flights. However I was seated next to a frightening woman who touched me and laid on my the whole flight. No matter what I did, she moved closer to touch me and did not give me personal space for the entire flight. Since it was a full flight I couldn't ask to be moved."
Cons: "Flight was late. AA charged me for an exit row seat, but assigned me a non-emergency exit row window seat. Wi-if did not work."
Pros: "no fresh food"
Pros: "Seats were more comfortable than expected. Flight was smooth and uneventful"
Cons: "I did not like being asked to pay extra for a seat assignment. Luckily I was assigned a great seat even though I chose to wait until check-in!"
Cons: "Flight from LAX was late causing our flight to leave 2 hours late missing our flight to CAE. This would have caused us to miss wedding events on Sat Drove to DIA took Red Eye to CLT and drove to CAE to pick up car and drive to Charleston for wedding event at 11:00 Am"
Pros: "Leg room is extremely limited and they made me Check my bag even though it was not at all over size and fit easily into the overhead on my previous flight. Gate crew was impolite but crew on plane was friendly."
Cons: "Smaller seats with very limited leg room (I'm only 100 pounds and 5'4" and felt crowded!) Forced to check bag"
Cons: "Board keeper rude to several guest who didn't want to check in their bag when there was plenty of room on the flight."
Pros: "The airplane had screens that tracked the flight progress, which was nice once we finally left."
Cons: "The delay leaving Boston caused me major ground transportation problems in Philadelphia. Also boarding agents did a lousy job getting people to check their carry on bags, knowing with a full flight they wouldn't have room. This further delayed take off."
Cons: "No elbow room."
Cons: "Dirty food trays trash jammed down it and flight attendant said the she doesn't touch that cleaners doBeing"
Pros: "Person at the ticket desk was nice and helpful"
Cons: "Not enough people to help all of the travail let's"

Cons: "Nothing you can do about this one. I don't like the little planes, so that's on me."
Pros: "Got me there"
Cons: "Delayed crowded and bumpy"
Pros: "American routinely cancels flights between CLT and TRI. this is the fourth time this year ive had to rent a car and drive the 3 hours at a cost of $130-300 each time. They are a terrible airline in terms of customer service. If they can't serve the route they shouldn't sell tickets!"
Pros: "Headphones provided. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "Exhausting overseas flight. Seats barely recline, impossible to get any sleep. The system was broken so no wifi, movies, maps etc. Power was intermittent so it was difficult to charge devices."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Gate in Miami wasn't ready and we sat for 45 minutes until they opened a gate for us to deplane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Nothing. Two flights were canceled for "weather" when all signs pointed to lack of equipment. I drove from CLT to TRI and the weather was fine."
Cons: "American failed to be timely or honest about the reasons for the canceled flights and did not offer refunds or alternative transport. It's only a 3 hour drive from CLT to TRI. They could have offered a bus. We'd even have paid bus fare. I had to hire a $500 driver because car rental was unavailable and American could not provide an open flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the first class seat with the bed.."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid extra money for first class but did not have a phone charger or usb hook . The regular seats came with phone chargers. I felt like the crew of men were more kindly pay attention to certain customers and avoiding my request"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Couldn't hear announcements very well. Being at the end of the terminal, space was a bit confined and the flight was full."
Pros: "Pleasant crew"
Cons: "Delayed about 90 min sitting on the plane"
Pros: "I LOVED the staff on this flight. Especially the man, I didn't catch his name but he was the friendliest flight attendant I have ever met. He had a warm smile the whole flight and helped me get an ice pack for my back when I was in pain. Every time he got something for someone he was smiling and happy which made me and my husband smile and happy. He should be recognized because he made our experience very enjoyable. I have never been on a flight where the service was constant, all of the flight attendants walked up and down the aisles throughout the flight making sure everyone was doing good. Typically, they go down the aisle with the service carts once and thats it, but they made sure everyone was taken care of for the whole flight. Thank you for the great flying experience after a long and tiring trip!! We were dreading the flight but the staff was great."
Cons: "Waiting in the Charlotte Airport for the flight to board was a bit irritating because the two girls that were supposed to call the sections for the flight were on their phones and not very present with what was going on. We boarded late and i am not sure if this is because the flight itself was late or they were just slow with the process.. The only thing I would complain about the flight itself is that we had to wait on our plane for about an hour after we landed. This, I know- has nothing to do with AA and the service/staff. I think this is something that SFO is responsible for, and I felt bad that people were taking it out on the crew."
