Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "That flight for 2.5 hrs is way to tight. An hour, hour and a half... OK. But 2.5 hrs on a packed flight was uncomfortable"

Cons: "My tray table was dirty. It had crumbs on it. The flight was on time which was awesome."
Cons: "The seats are extremely restrictive and in a aisle seat I had the gentleman sitting next to me with thighs touching and attendants brushing by me as I squished to left to avoid contact with him. Entertainment screen between center seat and window seat so I just didn't even try to look at it and mostly just leaned forward to have a little space. Also another inch or 2 was taken by person in front of me putting their seat back. With such restrictive space why is this even possible??? Flying has become ridiculous and I try not to as much as I can."
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendlly and accommodating. The landing in Paris was the smoothest I've ever had."
Cons: "The guy sitting next to us. He was very messy with his own airport-bought food all over the floor. And very restless and up and down the entire flight."
Cons: "We landed early but the plane was late 50 minutes into gate. Plane went pst our gate twice, just driving around the terminal."
Cons: "I'm expecting more from AA. We were delayed for 2.5 hr since we didn't have a pilot !!!!!"
Cons: "Speaker volume was too high."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."

Cons: "Small, cramped seating"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Cons: "Our flight reservation was somehow cancelled and we had to go through a process getting rebooked on other departing flights that day. Only our second leg (Chicago to Seattle) was confirmed."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Tiny bathrooms"
Pros: "Liked the flight. Very nice crew."
Pros: "The flight crew was very friendly"
Cons: "I wish the flight was longer. :)"
Cons: "The flight was delayed an hour (which wound up being a 3.5 hour delay in total, with all the continual delays that pursued afterwards(, which would have made us miss our connecting flight back to our home destination. We switched flights in order to make it home at a decent hour and not spend our entire day and night in an airport. We arrived home and they did not transfer two of our three checked bags to our flight, thus making it highly inconvenient upon our arrival home with no luggage."
Pros: "Nice new video entertainment system was good as were electric outlets . Adjustable headrests good too. Crew fine..."
Cons: "No food for 4+ hour flight . Seats incredibly cramped . Gee whiz ."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."
Pros: "Plane was new and entertainment was free. Great service too."
Cons: "American has improved a lot"
Pros: "Everything else was Fine on the flight..."
Cons: "...But having HBO NC-17 available on a public flight is uncalled for. Even though screens employ technology limit viewing from the side, the seats behind can see everything. We were thankful none of our kids were on this flight. Gratuitous sex scenes in abundance. No thanks American."
Pros: "Shabby Cramped"
Cons: "Cramped Uncomfortable"
Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."
Pros: "The seat pockets were decent, though I like when the magazines have their own designated slot behind the tray in addition to a pocket. Also good there were power outlets. I liked that they didn't skip row numbers, including 13. So if you're in row 22, for example, you know that's literally how many rows back you are."
Cons: "It took 25 minutes from when plane landed until it reached the gate. There was also apparently an issue with the auxiliary power -- the lights went out in back half of plane when we arrived at gate. I prefer having a screen behind each seat, rather than those attached to ceiling on this flight, so that the entertainment can be customized."
Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."
Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."
Cons: "lack of ent. options"
Pros: "Boarding process and flight crew were just fine - nothing excellent, just average. The plane was an older model, nothing special. We arrived 10 minutes early but then had to wait 20 minutes for a gate."
Cons: "They had no alcohol and no entertainment on a Transcontinental flight from IAD to LAX. Also once we landed we had to wait 20 for a gate assignment."
Pros: "entertainment displays on the back of every seat headrest. Nice room on Main Cabin Xtra, even with someone in the middle seat."
Cons: "1 of the flight attendants was pushy(older caucasian lady)"
Pros: "Flight got to gate 15 earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "But took one hour to get gate checked bag, which was mixed in with checked bags at bagged claim."
Pros: "Comfy seats, great service, was a smooth ride"
Cons: "my entertainment system wasnt working, the headphone jack was not working at all."
Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."
Cons: "Each flight delayed at least an hour"
Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "no food"
Cons: "Baggage charge. I always try and fly with southwest if possible no baggage fee and they have an overall better vibe for the flyers"
Pros: "Brittish Airways is so professional, treats everyone as if they were in first class, served great food, and loved the open bar the whole flight!"
Pros: "On my return I had my own seat! Not nearly as cramped. Had soda and pretzels. The air magazine was latest issue! The attended was nice."
Cons: "The seats needed to be shampood."
Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."
Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and kind."
