Pros: "Comfy seat, nice crew"
Cons: "Hour delay before departure; 30 minute delay after landing before we reached gate; 15 minute delay to get carry on bags!"

Pros: "as expected"
Pros: "Food was not too bad and I liked that they had snacks/ beverages out near the bathroom area for people to eat/ drink in the middle of the flight."
Cons: "Wish bathroom had been cleaned more frequently. Ran out of toilet paper a few times and floor was wet. My seat was broken so I could not recline back for 17 hours and since the flight was fully booked I was unable to move seats. It made the already long flight even more uncomfortable"
Pros: "The boarding process was quick, seats were comfy, staff was very nice."
Pros: "Stewards were good."

Pros: "Flight attendant gave me a free beer!"
Cons: "They left our laggage out in the rain at some point of our trip and the contents of our suitcases were soaked. Ruined a dress my wife had planned to wear to a wedding because the red suitcase bled through to the dress. Underwater, etc was soaked. The extent of it we didn't realize until unpacking the suitcases later. Totally disgusted they could have left our suitcase in the rain uncovered (or perhaps dropped them in a puddle)."

Cons: "Uncomfortable old dirty aircraft."
Cons: "Delayed for mechanical."
Pros: "I loved the attitude and helpful approach of the female flight attendant working the AA gate for the flight I took from DFW to COS last night (6/13). Truthfully, it was almost like I was back with Southwest. She was kind, calm, polite, efficient, and capable. Very rare in my experience with American Airlines yesterday. Interacting with her was refreshing."
Cons: "Getting home to Colorado Springs at 11:30 PM, taxiing for 15-20 minutes, and then waiting another 20-30 for checked luggage! Never have I waited that long during and after a Southwest flight! AA could truly learn something from their more modest counterpart. I have all but decided to resume my drives to Denver every other week rather than risk more and more time and poor experiences with AA flying in-and-out of Colorado Springs."
Pros: "NOTHING AA IS THE WORST. This is my 2ND AA experience within a 5 month time period and the first experience i tried brushing under the mat as it was bad however this one TAKES THE CAKE"
Cons: "The airport staff after TSA are RUDE! I was suppose to leave from one destination to another, last night. AA rebooked me without my consent and assumed i would be ok taking a later flight 24hrs later. After hassle, i thought i received a perfect flight which would get me to my destination A WEDDING at that in time. However, i have been rebooked over 5x in under 24hrs and still at the airport from 9hrs later! They do not compensate you and do not even extend the offer!"
Pros: "The 737 was excellent. Boeing still makes the best aircraft."
Cons: "Being rescheduled from an 0830 departure to a 0530 departure, which meant I had to get up at 0300 to get to RIC by 0400 for TSA and check-in. As originally planned I would have arisen at 0500, still early, but not nearly 0300. The equipment had no individual entertainment screens. So we were stuck with whatever was on the common screen...which was bad."
Cons: "When will the airlines stop cramming so many people in planes with seats that are too cramped. Especially when you are on a regional flight, with a seat crammed in a corner that does not recline."
Pros: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks. Flight was late"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "I was last getting on the plane and I didn’t want to check my carry-on and the flight attendant found a spot for me! Nice, quiet flight."
Cons: "The drink cart skipped me! I was definitely awake too. When I got his attention I finally got my drink but I didn’t get a napkin or pretzels offered either. WiFi was iffy and never loaded for me."
Pros: "On time departure & arrival; helpful staff at check in & at the gate; plane was comfortable."
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly American again."
Cons: "Both flights delayed. Over six hours late."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, clean airplane, great flight! Our original flight was delayed, but we still made it right on time for our connecting flight! I didn't realize when I was booking the flights that American lets you bring a carryon no charge, but United does not. You have to be a "Special" customer with them in order to be allowed a carryon, so we ended up paying an additional $50!!!"
Cons: "I was a little unhappy we were delayed, I had a meeting in Charlotte planned, but these things happen."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No safety briefing for infants, rude gate staff, primitive fleet, terrible customer service at all levels."
Pros: "I liked how quick the flight was to New York"
Cons: "Once boarding the plane and searching for my seat number , all of the cabin went pitch black . The lights went out for not more than a few moments. When the lights came back it was problematic and dim then fully lit to flickering off and on. Whenever it "seems" to have any electrical or mechanical failure. It's natural as a passenger my first thought is it's a Bad omen . I had genuinely lost some faith in the plane ."
Pros: "Crew, clean"
Cons: "Flight delayed as we were pushing back from the gate."
Cons: "So delayed that I was going to miss connection to talked my way onto a direct into New York"
Pros: "Security checkpoint was very quick, being a Sunday morning, and we departed on time. Everything was very normal."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "The boarding was very disorganized and took a long time, and there was no silverware on board, which I needed."
Cons: "It took so long for me to leave this airport. I got there around 11:30pm and my flight wasn't till around 9:45am the next day and so when it came to that time they had cancelled my flight so I got another ticked for around 2pm and they didn't board that flight till around 4:30. My experience there was to much to handle. I was supposed to get to Colorado Friday night but didn't even get here time Saturday afternoon. Really upsetted me because I leave wednsday so I don't have enough time to be with my boyfriend. I honestly don't think I'll be flying American Airlines again"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and the plane was on time."
Cons: "I tried to switch my flight to an earlier time. First, they charge $75 (Southwest is always free). Second, the gate agent charged me and let me board, but her boss came on the plane and pulled me off because I wasn't Executive Platinum status! The plane took off with an empty seat and I had to wait two more hours for the first flight. When I complained to AA about it, they sent me a $50 voucher. I don't plan on giving any business to AA for the rest of my life."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Pros: "I fell asleep on the trip so that was nice."

Cons: "Flight departure could have been on time"
Cons: "Seats are very small, could be bigger and more comfortable"
Pros: "ANA Chicago to Tokyo was so awesome. Crew is super courteous and polite. Food is good even economy class. Good headphones were already in front of the seats. ANA is the one that you want to fly!"
Cons: "Plane delayed to gate from hangar for mechanical. Flight never took off b/c the mechanical issues couldn’t be resolved; no other planes available. My trip postponed a full day, causing me to lose $500. Really poor to arrive at an airport before 6am and not fly for another 24hrs."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cheap seats. And why were we not seated together when we booked way in advance?"
Cons: "delayed. missed my connector and had to rebook to a later flight"
Cons: "everything started when we tryed to check in online for our flights with Lufthansa, when we got some errors saying that our flights does not exist. NO Emails, not calls, no messages, no voice mesagges left by the company! -called the client service, located in Philipine apparently, the lady confirms that all our flights were canceled (3), then she hangs off the phone. -called the second time, another lady is rebooking me on a different flight, but she informs me that my husband is not on the same reservation as me, so basically he is in another flight. Eventualy she is changing his reservation as well and puts him on the same flight as me. -waiting for the confirmation email, of course the reservation is just for me, no husband anywere. -called the third time, a nice canadian gentelman informs us that the second flights was canceled so he will redirect us via NJ instead of Washington. -we are rushing to the Richmond airport to catch the NY flight, at the counter they let us know that this flights was canceled and we are back on the DC flight. -when ready to board in the DC flight they are announcing the this flights is delayed from 1:30 pm to 7:30 pm due to weather conditions. -waiting in the line to be rebooked in another flight, after 3 h of waiting they decide they can fly to DC at 4:45 pm, with about 15 people on board."
Pros: "The flight going to Newark was cancelled due to the weather. The service person was prompt to changed our flight to Washington, DC."
Cons: "Due to staffing problems the flight going to DC left Richmond 1.5 hours late. The plane left at 4pm and our connecting flight to Rome was starting boarding at 425pm. It was very stressful. I can understand changes due to weather but there is no excuse when it comes to staffing."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the pilot and attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "Rules are rules. Yet, at least ten people brought on more than the designated one carry-on bag and purse. Flight attendants shouldn't have to deal with those poorly mannered passengers who think they deserve special treatment. Otherwise, it was all fine."
Pros: "Boarding was seamless"
Cons: "Planes were older and tight."
Cons: "2 hour delay"
Pros: "Helpful staff and smooth flight. No connections or Hassels"
Pros: "Courtesy and smiling faces"

Pros: "We were early getting into the Springs."
Pros: "Short flight so little to complain about."

Cons: "Flight delayed an hour and a half"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Seating and maybe some different reading material"
Pros: "Relatively, on time."
Cons: "The seats were hardest, most uncomfortable airline seats yet. No padding whatso ever. They now have 4 boarding classes plus the 'special' folks. If you drag your bag to the gate , which slows down boarding, you get it checked for free, if you check it yourself at the counter you get to pay 25$ ... Since older people generally do not want to be carrying luggage up the 'stairs and through the Chicago airport', it means they get to pay extra! I think it is age discrimination that all the airlines are doing. Only the young can fly the cheapest."
Pros: "On time, crew was very friendly"
Pros: "The pilot had an excellent landing in adverse conditiions"
Cons: "The in-flight concessions were extremely poor. The staff were impolite and inconsiderate"

Pros: "Everything was on time. Had enough time to get breakfast before departing. The stroopwaffle is awesome."
Cons: "Very cramped plane. Very hot in the cabin. And veneration wasn't good, cabin smelled like farts. The bathroom door lock was broken and didn't close all the way either. Had to gate check my bag again."
Cons: "The fact that only one cup of coffee with 2 creamer was the maximum I was allowed. She was no friendly at al"
Cons: "Cancelled and automatically booked with no option for a refund unless I waited seven hours in line at 1 AM. Ridiculous especially given demver's proximity to the springs. WEBSITE NEEDS A STREAMLINED REFUND OPTION FOR AUTOMATICALLY REBOOKED FLIGHTS."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled so I'm on stand by for who knows when"
Pros: "Both flights were early landing which was nice everything moved smoothly"
Cons: "I didn't have an assigned seat in the 22nd flight so when they called I asked about they said wait for ur flight to be called so I went and Sat back down til they called me by name so almost missed my flight because the communication with the staff needs improvements"
Cons: "Whers my bag!?!?!"
Pros: "I was too sick to wait in the airport between flights and my husband came up to Denver and picked. Me up."
Cons: "United rerouted us and added another leg to our trip. We never flew Richmond to Denver. We ended up going Richmond -> Chicago -> Denver -> Santa Barbara. This caused us to miss a post-wedding brunch with family that we're only able to see about once every three years. All this after changing our flight out to the east coast the day of the flight (my 8:55pm flight was changed to 5:23pm, and I was notified after 3pm - meaning I had to run out of work early, costing me money, run home to pack, and rush to the airport, only to wait 3 hours for a now delayed flight). The also added another leg to that trip as well (at 3pm, day of). This was a red-eye flight and the last thing we wanted to do was get on and off the plane all night.

Cons: "when i purchased my flight ut was for 6am. After paying for my tickets my flight time was changed to 9am. Then 24 hours prior to my flight it wad changed to 11am due to technical difficulties. This caused me to have to take a later flight out of Chicago O'Hare."
Pros: "Convenient, cheap, best route"
Cons: "Incredibly uncomfortable seats on the express jets - we joked that we need to bring stadium cushions next time. For a full day of traveling, I would consider a more expensive route with another airline than tolerating the hard seating they offer."

Cons: "Had to sit on runway for over 2 hours causing me to miss connecting flight in Chicago. Then no more flights to Little Rock so had to spend the nite in airport very uncomfortable!!

Cons: "Boarding was 15-20 minutes late, no one at the counter. Bumpy flight due to turbulence due to weather."
Pros: "The entertainment on the app for movies is pretty cool but everything else sucks!!!"
Cons: "Never never never ontime. I can't trust your flights to get me where I need to go. 3 weeks in a row your 5:20pm out of Richmond, VA was late due to waiting on an aircraft. How can that be? You didn't fix the problem the first time? I won't be flying United unless something changes. You lost a customer for life"
