Pros: "Flight was comfortable and smooth all the way"
Cons: "Tastier food options"

Pros: "Average flight. Crew was polite."
Cons: "On time performance. Barely made my connecton, because of flight delay. Seems like only 1 in 5 flights are on time according to flightaware.com."

Cons: "We weren't alerted there was a chance of delays. Over two hours late."

Pros: "The cabin was to warm"
Cons: "The cabin was to warm"

Pros: "Great seat easy flight. The food always seem to be the same. I wish they would change it up every once in a while. I've been on this flight 14 times this year and its always exactly the same.."
Cons: "The gate was under construction in Seattle, and it was impossible to hear the gate agents."

Pros: "Crew were attentive and the food service schedule was helpful in making the time pass. wonderfully generous pours on the complimentary wine service"
Cons: "Food was really just gooey goo."

Cons: "They did not have a “gate available” for our arrival so we have been waiting in the plain on the tarmac for over fourty minutes and still waiting. This is ridiculous. We purchase tickets at delta for a plain that had a departure and arrival gate. This should not be happening"

Pros: "Super friendly staf, big enough seat, good enough food, enough room for luggage."
Cons: "Seat was smaller than EVA and food not quite as good."

Pros: "Entertainment, food, comfort"
Cons: "Slow boarding/alighting, entertainment system was too sluggish"

Pros: "This is what airlines used to be like. The food and quantity were excellent. Too bad these services aren’t offered on domestic flights. We had a snack or meal every couple hours with plenty of drinks. The legroom was ample and comfortable."
Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Great staff and they worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The seats are small and the plane feels like a Sardine can."

Cons: "Did not serve the food we asked Limited choice of movies"

Pros: "Great flight attendants and crew, 30 min early!!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Food, service and entertainment"
Cons: "Entry into the aircraft was a bit chaotic"

Cons: "Had a 5 hour layover - booked first class but this did not entitle me to use the delta lounge in seattle. Snacks only on the flight."

Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."

Pros: "absolutely nothing"
Cons: "The crew! So slow! Not helpful with your questions/request and the attitude! What on earth! Awful customer service!"

Cons: "Too many interruptions on the inflight entertainment."

Pros: "Loved the swift checking in at Seatac, being picked out of the Special check-in line, tended to by a Ndeye, smooth all the way through to the gate. Also liked that the plane's arrival at Schiphol was only 30 minutes later than initial ETA after long delay at Seatac. Also liked the many snacks."
Cons: "Prolonged delay of flight departure. Choices of entertainment, especially movies."

Cons: "Old cramped untidy and limited drink service"

Pros: "Good food, excellent service"
Cons: "Seats did not have enough storage."

Cons: "Seats a bit cramped"

Cons: "The crew appeared tired, scattered, and unhappy. The flight was delayed after boarding nearly 1hr while repairs were completed. 1st announcement by captains crew stated passengers could disembark during repair, then stated 10min later to take a seat. Very poor communication."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"

Pros: "Crew was excellent everything served was of great quality, all the amenities were solid and flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "The only complaint was the extreme use of air conditioning that made it a necessity to use many blankets to keep warm from freezing."

Pros: "Wifi for entertainment worked well"
Cons: "No longer have entertainment on back of seats"

Cons: "*Again, my first choice of main off the menu, in Delta One, had run out. *Not a fan of the Delta One seats."

Pros: "Getting to China, albeit two days late."
Cons: "The fact that the lack of knowledge regarding international travel visas by the counter staff and supervisor meant that two days of the vacation were lost. Upon arrival in China the 144 hour travel visa was granted with no problem within minutes, but the U.S. staff was completely befuddled by the possibility. The interrogation was completely stressful and resulted in a reschedule of the original flight and during the second attempt at flying even an email from the U.S. consulate with a link to the Shanghai/Chinese government immigration site was deemed "not official enough". i will be expecting proper compensation. I was once given an $850 travel voucher for voluntarily giving up my seat, and was flown first class to Hawaii, given 4 star accomodation and then flown first class on to China within 48 hours. This was an involuntary bump from our chosen flight time, all because of a lack of knowledge about current visa regulations and international law on the part of the check in staff. We have been loyal Delta users for over 15 years, and this was the biggest blunder ever. Also humiliating and extremely frustrating, stressful and a big problem with fulfilling our travel plans between son and father."

Pros: "The entertainment system had a wide selection of good movies to watch."
Cons: "The seat was busted and could barely recline at all."

Pros: "Great staff, polite and helpful"
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Very attentative."

Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"

Pros: "Helpful staff. Never felt rushed if I had a question. The special meal (VLML) was excellent. Tasty, filling and nutritious Plenty of foot room in economy."

Pros: "Nice Pajamas. Individual window seat. Decent food."
Cons: "Seat ptich could be/should be - wider. Snacks can be better and have better option.. ( only Apple for a fruit? Gimme a break)"

Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"

Pros: "The movies."
Cons: "Horrible food and Very very uncomfortable seats. Absolutely NO leg room. One of these days Delta is going to be sued for deep vein thrombosis (blood clot)."

Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"

Pros: "Economy seats are comfortable. I wasn't compressed in any way sitting in a window seat. Delta is my go-to airline. Not always the least expensive, but it's usually a pleasant trip."

Cons: "Must have been an older Delta jet. It had no entertainment. The wifi was poor."

Pros: "Crew was very helpful."
Cons: "This flight was delayed 5+ hours past its scheduled 12:15 departure due to mechanical issues with the plane. Delta was only able to offer a $50 travel voucher for this huge inconvenience."

Pros: "Finally, a free movie! Now, whoever picks the movie needs to do a better job, but atleast it was something! Service was Excellent, first pass with snack and drink carts, then they came through with coffee, and again with water! Now, that's service! Great job! Very friendly staff."
Cons: "Bathrooms, once again... disgusting. Urine on the floor, smelled awful. Tiny bathrooms, only 1 up front"

Cons: "Boarding was 30 minutes late."

Cons: "I was surrounded by a basketball team. They all have terrible breath. I know that because they kept talking to each other and I was in the middle (literally) of it all. Thanks Delta airlines!"

Pros: "The gate agents were friendly and made the boarding process quick."
Cons: "This was my connecting flight, and also left late. I can't really rate the crew on either flight, because I didn't see them. It's also impossible for me to rate the food/beverage service, because there was none. I spent over 3 hours on planes, and no beverage service was provided. If you have connecting flights, are flying for business, or don't pack your own refreshments assuming that something standard services will be, well, standard, Delta is probably not who you want to fly with. I work in the industry and sm usually not this brutally honest, but the whole trip was pretty disappointing."

Pros: "Overall, the flight was good. It actually wasn't a Delta flight but an Alaska Airlines flight."
Cons: "The aircraft was new model 737-800, very nice! Except the seats are a bit hard. Not good for a 5 hour flight. What really made me angry is I paid for a Delta flight. What difference does it make!? On long Delta flights, you get a meal (you pay for it in the cost of your ticket), but I was put on an Alaska Airlines flight where the meals are $7.50! I think that if Delta puts you on an affiliated airline, they should pick up the tab for the meal. Entertainment is via your smartphone. Don't have a smartphone, no problem, cough up $10 for a 2 bit tablet to watch a movie!"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "The flight was late"

Pros: "Crew, on board entertainment..."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized. A lot of food options but only one dish, missed the salad or other options compared to other companies such as Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and etc.. Drinks were ok, lacked alcohol options compared to other companies."

Cons: "The time it took to open the door upon arrival"

Cons: "Great service, excellent food, very good quality, comfortable, thanks so much for everything. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"

Cons: "Only one gate agent was boarding passengers, which made the boarding process very slow. I was assigned a seat on the aisle in front of the exit row. For a midnight flight, I was really bummed to find out that my seat would not recline! My leg room on the A321 was lacking in comparison with GOL."

Cons: "I missed my flight because a connecting flight I booked with you all got canceled would I be able to get a refund or claim back"

Cons: "TV at each seat"

Cons: "Better aircraft and personnel should smile and be more friendly"

Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Try to avoid LATAM. Actually low cost competition is offering a better service. Latam grew too much and the service is bad. They are making too many mistakes such as not delivering basic information such as where to pick up luggage claim. Honest advice: look for alternatives and avoid big headaches"

Pros: "no"
Cons: "everthing"

Pros: "Seats were acceptable. Crew was competent and prompt."

Pros: "I missed my flight, latam's computer was down, I stayed at the airport for 16 hours with them telling me I can't refund, I can't reschedule, pretty much they took my money and left me stuck in Houston. I waited for this day for 6 months, I sold my car, just for this trip. never flying latam"
Cons: "customer service is the worst I've ever seen in my life.. worse then any other place I've gone, they will not even try to look into your situation, they took my boarding pass and left me stuck in Houston. $1,000 put into their pocket with no service rendered. I hate my life"

Cons: "Food is very"

Pros: "easy enough..."

Pros: "On board entertainment"

Pros: "I had few questions about emigration in São Paulo and they helped, the food was good and all were very kind!"

Pros: "I loved the service, attention they flight attendants gave me and feeling like I was at home.."
Cons: "My only complain would be the customers that are in airline, but that’s not the airlines fault..."

Cons: "Unless you have a super category in this airline, don’t even try to apply to an upgrade. Employees have more preference than you"

Pros: "The seat"
Cons: "The food. Awful. Awful. Beyond awful."

Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."

Pros: "Tryp Hotel at GRU"
Cons: "We should get some sort of refund. Just food and hotel is not enough"

Pros: "Gave good snacks"

Pros: "Bad services, bad food, No enterteiment services available."

Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."

Cons: "I have time toget the other flight but they already have every thing ready to let us in Sao Pablo, I have to stay 1 day. That was very bad."

Pros: "The movie choices are endless!"
Cons: "I wish I was told about the Lan app to download before we took off"

Cons: "TAM is extremely unreliable and will never leave on time. LAN was actually very nice, but their sister TAM is by far the worst I've ever taken. I will be very clear next time when booking in South America to not take TAM again. We were delayed by 2hours for no apparent reason."

Cons: "It feel weird to have the crew discussing their personal things/stories while selling the on board duty free."

Pros: "Nice people and good food"
Cons: "The tv stopped working halfway through flight"

Cons: "Poor food and drink service. The entertainment system was antiquated."

Pros: "US based airlines should take a lesson from AeroMexico - reasonable prices and the services we used to receive without additional charges: snack, food, 1 bag checked without fee, leg room! Thank god I Iive just south of Vancouver and can floy out of there instead of an American airport with greedy American-based airlines."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "So so beverage selection"

Cons: "Again flight was delayed"

Pros: "Staff was pleasant, the flight wasn't full and they spaced us out nicely. The volume was difficult but at least the movie/entertainment was available this time on the long flight. Always nice to have something to eat, even if it's not awesome :) Flights were basically on-time."
Cons: "This is not a problem with AeroMexico but I found it absolutely RIDICULOUS that our flight crew had to deplane from their in-bound flight - and Go Through Customs & Immigration - only to turn around and get back on the plane for the return trip. INSANE and Embarrassing as this does not happen in other countries - not even Canada."

Pros: "Excellent customer service and they actually served us delicious dinner, no pretzels nor peanuts ...very impressed !"

Pros: "Everything was great,,, good crew attitude"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "I’m gonna leave this empty"

Pros: "Excellent service, plus no extra cost for the carry-on."
Cons: "It took almost an hour to get off the plane at our arrival."

Pros: "Excellent Customer Service. Very pleasant flight."

Cons: "over booked flight"

Cons: "The flight was late with no explanation. On flight entertainment broken, no explanation or apology. Mexico City airport is is disorganized and the bathrooms broken or filthy. They broke three suitcases on my flight, including mine. Quality of service and response is zero."

Pros: "Conforto das poltronas. Mesmo na area mais simples."
Cons: "Comida, pois nao da pra comer feijao preto no cafe da manha junto com omelete, sistema de entretenimento que nao funcionou por quase 3hs. A equipe tambem parecia nao querer atender os passageiros."

Cons: "Food was poor and flight delayed because of crew, at least that is what I was told."

Pros: "It was a direct flight."
Cons: "The delay when departing, and the attention of the flight attendants. Also very limited kind of beverages."

Pros: "Priority boarding is what I like in this trip."
Cons: "The crew had occupied the front overhead lugguge space that cause passenger need to find space for their luggage not around their seat. The crew member also occupied the remaining business class, is it better to upgrade some customer to the business to have great experience for the trip."

Pros: "Hatted !"
Cons: "Extremely disappointed. The flight was cancelled and next day it was delay for about 2:30 hrs and they let us waiting inside of the plane got about 1h 30 min . I will never use air Mexico again"

Cons: "the only food served to us during the fly was a breakfast which one was the combination of black beans with eggs which was rotten and smelling very bad ...."

Cons: "Aeromexico in a new cost reduction strategy decided to lower the temperature in their air conditioners making it a VERY uncomfortable flight. Also the lady at the gate didn't let me board the plane with a frappuccino arguing that's what the no liquids policy is about. A blatant display of ignorance and lack of training."

Pros: "Movies"

Cons: "Lack of information which caused delays to board."

Cons: "we never even got on this flight"

Cons: "O tempo que demorou para sair do avião e pegar o ônibus para o local de resgate da bagagem"

Cons: "The company just sucks. I have gotten so many flights delayed with them that I am not even going to bother buying any more tickets with them"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was one person helping a huge amount of people. It took one hour to check in. No common sense. They were helping the domestic flight people first with less bags to check in and the international flights were backed up with people missing their connections. No common sense at all. Incompetent service."

Pros: "Better snack"
Cons: "Snack"

Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seats for such a long flight 10 hrs"

Cons: "I didn't know about the luggage extra fee.when i buy a ticket ,i mean that include the luggage! In this point , i was very disappointed!!!"

Cons: "The staff at Rio mis-labeled our bags and we almost missed our connections because of this error. It was extremely stressful and badly managed."

Pros: "nice, clean plane; nice check-in experience"
Cons: "Crammed bus to the airplane"

Cons: "Couldn't check in online because system was down and at the airport they had trouble printing my ticket because of a challenge between kayak (flight network) and Gol. Literally hours wasted."

Pros: "I like everything about this trip with this airline"

Cons: "Flight extremely delayed, people accompaning crew boarded first and took space in the overhead, i tried to change seats no no one at the gate was willing to work"

Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Every step of the way from checking in to picking up the baggage was very frustrating... one of the worst flying experiences I have had."

Pros: "On time departure"

Cons: "Flight time was changed quite substantially from the time when I bought the ticket, therefore I simply did not take the trip."

Pros: "Space between seats"
Cons: "Lack of food options"

Pros: "Excellent crew members !"

Pros: "On time and the flight wasn't cancled like their partner airline."

Pros: "It was a short flight so there was no entertainment and I believe the snack was just a snack. But neither of those two things were necessary anyway, I was quite happy to just take the short trip without. I like GOL, it's a nice airline and the people all seem very happy to work."
Cons: "Although not really necessary, it would have been nice if the inflight magazine could also have English because most of us first language English people don't speak a second language, unfortunately!"

Pros: "Very reliable and good schedules"
Cons: "Nearly impossible to make a change if booked through KAYAK site. Baggage policies and fees very different from US carries and a bit of racket. Be careful."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The time"

Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to bad weather which was not the airlines fault but they gave us no updates then didn't help at all once we missed all or connections. In the end, we had to purchase new flights from Sao Paulo to Sydney to make our important function on Wednesday morning. We went to the Etihad desk in São Paulo and they did nothing to help us except suggest we complain via the website. The worst flight experience of my life!"

Cons: "The food."

Pros: "Actual flight was fine, uneventful"
Cons: "Check in at Santos Dumont Airport in Rio was absurdly slow -- just three or four agents for a mob of people. Each agent seemed to take 15 mins to issue each boarding pass and check bags. Many passengers were in a state of semi-panic. They moved like molasses. After arriving at Garulhos in São Paulo, those same bags took 40 mins to come out, causing me to almost miss a connecting flight."

Pros: "Good crew, appeared to work we’ll together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."

Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "That the flight ended"
Cons: "Everything. In a flight from Miami/Orlando (full of families) you are not allowed to choose seats, at the gate (where you supposed to change seats) the staff was rude, inside the plan people make their own changes and it gets a mess. Terrible experience."

Cons: "Other than at meals, No crew around to distribute water on a 9-10 hour flight. Crew not very nice when we were asking for water. Completely dehydrated on arrival. Ground crew very charming."

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"

Pros: "We landed safely; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work"
Cons: "Extreme delays; Beautiful infotainment screen that did NOT work; Sitting on the runway/tarmac for hours"

Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."

Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "I had to put my carry on item 10 seats behind my seat location. That delayed my leaving of the plane to my next flight."

Cons: "Not enough time in London to change planes. We missed the flight"

Pros: "Crew made a special effort to find me a nondairy meal (which I had neglected to request)."
Cons: "Web page dysfunction meant we couldn't sign up for wifi. The page asked me to set security questions but the pulldown for the questions had no options to select from. I tried on multiple devices/browsers."

Pros: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."

Pros: "seats comfy, seemed like a newer plane, crew was lovely."
Cons: "usual complaints about domestic flights - not having free headphones and not having free snacks."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Middle seat"

Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"

Pros: "Cabin crew attentive. Comfortable seat. Only 2/3 full. Easy boarding and embarking. Overall, value for cost."
Cons: "Food. No individual entertainment unit."

Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"

Cons: "No food or entertainment offered at all - for a 5-1/2 hour flight. Seats uncomfortable. I don't like how it feels like you're nickle and diming us - charging for every little thing, including what seat you sit in."

Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."

Pros: "loved having a movie to pass the time. Super friendly attendants."

Pros: "Was able to change my seat"
Cons: "The tone of the flight attendant (male) who can through the cabin to check things before landing. He was brash and abrasive. Yes, safety first, but overall not a good look for someone in a customer service industry. you can accomplish the same goal with different delivery"

Cons: "I paid for a non-stop from Seattle to Philadelphia. they cancelled it and only had options that dragged out the trip, caused an extra day of lost work. There was no attempt or offer to ameliorate the inconvenience, or refund the cost -- even an upgrade would have been appreciated. just here's what we have, take it or leave it. I am through with American"

Cons: "No screens, no wifi"

Pros: "Really? I just gave 1 star. Your feedback form should be smart enough to realize that."
Cons: "It's not finnair. It's American Airlines. The sears were so cramped that I have a horrible backache. Stop calling it finnair. Several airlines booked tickets on this flight. There's nothing good to say."

Pros: "Flight was ok, staff was professional and friendly. A good cleaning would be great. I'm average height and light build for a woman but I find the seats really are snugger than ever."
Cons: "AA didn't notify me of their change to my itinerary so I missed my flight, they cancelled my return flight from Europe, and only offered to refund my ticket when I spoke to a supervisor. I drove 5.5 hours to another city to catch a flight to Europe, believing my return ticket was valid as AA first told me, only later to learn they cancelled it. Thanks to AA, I currently I have no return ticket. Others on this flight and on my later Iberia flight were cursing AA loudly so I don't think my issue is an anomaly, but is more likely AA's new standard of conduct."

Cons: "Self check-in staff at Seattle was not that helpful."

Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."

Pros: "On time. No issues. The last two times I have flown Delta I've had issues. Smooth sailing"

Pros: "On time. Friendly crew. Good price."

Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."

Pros: "I liked a lot about our flight, especially that we didn't crash."
Cons: "For a 12 hour flight a little more leg room would have been nice."

Pros: "The flight crew was helpful"
Cons: "I got stuck in Dallas overnight with no place to stay and no compensation"

Cons: "My flight was delayed 2+ hours which made me miss my connecting flight & not make it to my destination until the next day ."

Pros: "Not happy ."
Cons: "No good communication in why flight was cancelled or delayed . I personally had family traveling far to pick me up at the airport and it was very inconvenient on all my flights with American Airlines."

Pros: "Everything about the flight seemed fast. From the boarding process to the landing process. It was a very fast flight. Much faster than Southwest Airlines."
Cons: "It was a 6 am flight and the crew looked like it was a 6 am flight. No smiles. No energy. They looked like they didn't like their job. Maybe they needed coffee."

Pros: "The flight crew were really good and efficient. The plane was a new 737 and was beautiful and clean when we boarded."
Cons: "The boarding was rough. Very slow. Too many folks with carry ons. Pressure from the gate crew was put on those last in line to hurry to make gate departure time although it was fthe folks on the plane with carry ons that were keeping us from boarding. I paid the money to check a bag but folks with over sized carry on got their bags checked for free at the plane entrancewhen they ran out of room in the cabin. They ran out of room before more than half the plane was boarded."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Bags didn't get lost. Pilot and crew seemed nice."
Cons: "Smallest middle seat I've ever sat in. Wifi was $40. Baggage Fees were pricey. No free snacks. No free entertainment options."

Pros: "I know AA and Alask are same company but I bought Alaska ariline ticket and everything I need to deal with is AA. It's too confusing."
Cons: "Too confused!"

Cons: "We spent 24 hours in LAX with absolutely no answers from American Airlines. This was a complete nightmare. I have never experienced anything like this."

Cons: "Fat constantly moving man next to me"

Pros: "free entertainment"

Pros: "Help that I received from check in through security to the gate was awesome. The person who checked me in offered me a wheelchair as it was a pretty long distance to the gate. I don't think that I would have made it all the way without her for thought and help! Same goes after the flight when we landed in Philadelphia. From the plane to gather my luggage and then to the place where my ride could pick me up. Awesome service. The stewards were also very helpful to keep me supplied with ice for my dogs. They get very stressed and tend to overheat. Thanks to a couple of the staff, especially, my dogs stayed very comfortable as well. Other then the fact that they got too warm a couple of times. Will definitely keep American in mind for another flight."
Cons: "I have not got a background in flying. I read the literature in the seat in front of me but I would like to have known sooner that I could turn a knob to help get cool air on my dogs. They were getting very warm and I spent a great deal of time fanning them when I could have just let the air do it's job."

Cons: "No information and made us wait about 3 hours past departure time to tell us the flight was delayed until the next day, but did not even know at what time or why!!! It really messed up it vacation since we were going to Florida for only 3 days!"

Cons: "They boarded group 1 all at once. I was group 2. They boarded all of us all at once. It was a cluster!. I haven't flew in 6 years. But when I did they boarded by so many rows. Not all at once . Boarding was horrible. It was like a cattle drive."

Cons: "Delayed"

Pros: "Just wish the boarding was better"

Pros: "The price was right! Connection in Chicago was a little tight but overall a good flight."

Pros: "relatively quiet for a redeye, seats were made out of a decent leather like material, TVs in the back of each seat along with charging inputs"
Cons: "AA version of the 737 is very cramped, small seats with little room and very upright, barely recline if at all. Also, unlike other airlines they installed metal boxes underneath the seats for the life vests which take up a third of your leg room. Overhead air barely blows and the overall temp was a little too warm for comfort even while just wearing shorts and a T-shirt. Lights were bright for first half of the trip until they finished drink service even though flight started at midnight."

Pros: "There isn't much to like about a red eye flight. It got us home. We selected it based on price and schedule."
Cons: "Crew made one pass thru cabin with a mini bag of pretzels and one pass thru with beverage. Never saw them again but perhaps that is the norm for AA. No so with other carriers we have flown red eyes on. Always tough getting a good connection when flying west to east"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "5 gate changes and 1 hour 20 minute delay!"
