My first airline trip in 4 years. Normally I’d fly Virgin or Jet Blue, but this was the best fare and schedule for me. I figured I could suck it up for 4 hours. My seat was upgraded without my asking for one and I was very pleased with the entire trip. No issues whatsoever. Arrived early. Awesome crew. There was a time when I would not even consider American Airlines. Now I will definitely do it again. Great flight. CLT to LAX 09.04.21
Cons: "The crew failed to enforce ANY mask policy. The WiFi did not work. They over served alcohol to the passengers."
Cons: "The plane is falling apart. Overhead bins broken. Dripping water. No water in bathroom Tray tables don’t retract."
Pros: "comfortable seats, legroom,"
Cons: "seat recline, food, offer lounge access"
Cons: "Had to change our plans, and AA wouldn't give us a refund. We never got on the plane but had to pay for the tickets anyway. I'll never fly AA again."
Pros: "on time departure offered a beverage and snack"
Cons: "we had to circle phila we had to wait for our gate"
Cons: "Sat on the ramp for an hour with no A/C, no water. Jaded crew. Not good overall."
Pros: "When my original flight out of Roanoke was delayed so much that I was going to miss my connection an employee went above and beyond to find me a different flight to ensure I got home that day."
Cons: "The first AA employee basically told me I was out of luck and there was nothing he could do, which was incorrect and he just didnt want to do everything he could to help me like the other employee eventually did."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for awhile and there was little information on an ETA of when we would be able to leave."
Pros: "Premium economy was roomy and appreciate the included cocktails."
Cons: "The flight was delayed."
Cons: "The guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind.he is so nice person."
Pros: "Flight from Narita to Kaoshiung was great, as usual, with JAL"
Cons: "Slept overnight in LA terminal, Bag sent to San Diego. Flight on American Airlines to Narita was cramped. Short stay in Narita, on to Kaoshiung via JAL, got to Kaoshiung and bag was/is still in San Diego. Hopefully, I'll never have to fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "I appreciate that I was able to switch seats thereby giving the cat and its owner more room."
Cons: "I have to say I was very surprised that there would be a passenger flying next to me with a cat in a carrier seated next to me."
Pros: "We were very well looked after by a group of male flight attendants. The plane was clean, calm, quiet and we had all we needed."
Cons: "Breakfast - lots of sugary items"
Pros: "the gate attendant was very nice as my husband was stuck in security line (I have Pre check) He barely made it, but the guy never made me feel uncomfortable or rushed. He was kind, calm and reassuring."
Cons: "Our flight attendant seemed to have a chip on her shoulder from the moment we stepped on the flight. I had a broken foot and it was difficult for me to fit my boot and personal item under the seat. Rather than assisting me, she barked commands and quickly walked away as I attempted to address the situation. - poor attitude - failed to ask if I wanted a biscuit but simply slapped one down on my tray table (I HAVE CELIAC DISEASE) - American really needs to catch up with the other airlines and offer a GF option to those of us who have immune disorders. - no WiFi"
Cons: "One bathroom for whole plane for 5.5 hr flight. Enough said."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "The help on getting on the plane and the pleasant staff on the flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "It’s a jet"
Cons: "Boarding terrible at DCA, seats cramped"
Cons: "the drink service came through pretty late in the flight. i asked for hot tea. a few minutes later i was provided with extremely hot tea. about 10 minutes later it was a temperature i could tolerate drinking. about 1/3 through the drink i was required to throw away my drink because we were preparing for landing. i understand that, fine. bad timing. it’s just a drink. what was unsatisfactory is that the attendant rudely commented “you have to give us your drink. it’s not that long of a flight.” the comment made me feel like i had done something wrong even though i had just been drinking my tea as soon as it was at a drinkable temperature. i was not impressed with the attendant. also, there weren’t any biscotti cookies."
Cons: "The entertainment screens did not work in my seat and my wife's seat."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "I’m never comfortable in airplane seats"
Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."
Pros: "A crazy day at the airport with TWO unattended baggage threats that created a back log at security. Efficiently boarded the plane and took off on time, arriving early."
Cons: "Taking a bus to the plane, being forced to wait on the bus in hot conditions to board, having to climb stairs to access plane."
Pros: "Everything was organized pleasant staff,"
Cons: "We boarded an hour late and then sat in the runway for ever. Flight was scheduled to arrive in Nashville at 1137p we arrived at 148a! Ridiculous"
Pros: "It was a short smooth ride, no delays and the crew was nice. The snack was fine."
Cons: "I wish they offered drinks more. Like a bottle of water along with something else to drink."
Pros: "Since air travel holds little charm for those of us who ride in economy class, my expectations are pretty low. The crew was polite and there were no delays."
Cons: "The food was typically low quality."
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly with American Airlines again."
Pros: "On time start and finish. All but one of the crew were pleasant. One was a bit imperious and seeming overwtought."
Cons: "The 9 hour international leg of our flight was very, very uncomfortable. I'm 6'2", not a freak, and my legs were jammed against the seat frame in front on this new dreamliner Legroom AND seat width both markedly less than the short haul Airbus on our fist leg. To get one of the last 'extra room' seats would have been 179.00...rediculous. This was abuse."
Cons: "Flight cancelled"
Pros: "The crew was courteous and very nice."
Cons: "The aisles are too narrow. As passengers are boarding and you sit in the aisles you are constantly struck. FAA should investigate with the decreased aisle width and distance between the seats, can the evacuation be completed within required time, in an actual emergency. American Airlines is endangering the lives of passengers. And the cramped conditions are contributing to the hostile actions of some passengers. What does it take to do what is right?"
Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."
Cons: "The storage are very small, by the time i boarded everything was full. I had to hand carry bags and i had to put it in front of me which is a very small space already, on top of that i had the window sit so i had no space to move. it was very uncomfortable, and flight was delayed. We sat there for an hour before taking off but i understand its due to the weather but it was my worst plane ride not worth 300dollars. I will not ride american airline again."
Pros: "Arrived. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Seat too small, cramped leg room. Was told there was no space for my carry-on and to check it, but there was plenty of space when I got on plane."
Cons: "Entertainment is rather limited."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Service, size of plane, lack of enthusiasm from staff"
Cons: "Delay but it happens"
Pros: "The gate crew in Roanoke were professional and helpful. The next day's flight was on time and uneventful."
Cons: "The flight attendant was unfriendly at boarding. He did not say or play any pre-flight safety announcements. We were told the flight might have to refuel in Richmond due to major weather delays in LGA. When we were landing they said they expected a refuel and a quick turnaround in Richmond. On the plane after landing, I learned via my phone's internet the flight was cancelled. They never announced it on the plane. At the final moment before we disembarked, the crew told us to be sure to take our belongings. When we landed, Flightaware showed delays of 45 minutes at LGA. AA never took responsibility for the problem though the gate crew mentioned they canceled the flight because the crew was going to be over their maximum hours. AA really couldn't plan to allow for up to an hour delay? I feel disrespected and even deceived. Although it was clear that flight attendant really needed to get off that plane. At the gate, we were told there were no available flights to NYC and were stranded overnight in Richmond. AA did offer a hotel pretending it was a courtesy since they claimed the problem was weather related and not theirs. We chose to stay with relatives and were told AA could only provide transportation from the airport which we did not need. We often have problems and cancellations on this route from when it was branded a US Air route to the present, but this was egregious."
Pros: "Music/radio was nice at my seat; got into Sacramento early"
Cons: "No gate # on boarding pass, almost missed flight; kind of had to slouch to look out the window; rough/fast landing"
Pros: "Piglet did a great job, flying through and around storms. A smooth flight in stormy weather."
Cons: "Turned out the lights too early."
Pros: "The leg room on these flights is becoming a joke. I purchase upgrades seats always and was appalled on this trip how aa seems to be trying to rip off customers more and more with any trick they can come up with. My extra leg room was barely acceptable for any flight. I can't imagine those behind me."
Cons: "I really will avoid AA at all costs now. Just feels like a rip off every time I fly with them and their crew is rude."
Pros: "Nothing but delays, cancellations, and rude people"
Cons: "Cold,no blankets .flight attendant was a little rude"
Cons: "Why are you bothering me with a survey after your already inconvenienced me with a flight I had to cancel? No notification that this flight would not make my connection in time. No alternatives given. Horrible customer service all around."
Pros: "Not a lot!"
Cons: "We had about seven wheelchair passengers booked on this flight and no one had a clue how to manage it. two ended up being carted off to other gates and the rest boarded slowly, resulting in a 40 minute delay departing. When we got to Charlotte there were planes backed up, another 20 minutes to get to a gate. My 90 minute leisurely stroll to my next flight morphed into a race across three concourses. Charlotte is a nightmare under the best conditions, this just sucked."
