Customer service at the airport after our flight was canceled was the only thing hat made my experience better. Thankfully she was able to find me a flight with American to get home to my family.

I was headed to see my family because my grandmother passed away that morning. You changed our gate 10 minutes prior to boarding, so ALL of the passengers left the gate, boarded the airport tram, went to the other side of the airport to arrive at our gate to find out 30 seconds after walking up that YOU CANCELED OUR FLIGHT?!!!?!! And then automatically scheduled us all for a flight at 10pm that night. Not ok.

I was returning from an international flight, and had carried my smallish rollerboard +1 personal bag all through (including outbound) with no problems. Just on the last leg, IAD to RDU, the gate agent forced me to check the bag, even though the flight was not full, and the bag could easily fit in the overhead bin. I was in Group 3.

Forced to gate check rollerboard for no reason.

We were upgraded to seats with more room. After a 8+ hour flight before this one, it was welcome. We had to deal with the hurricane. After delays, the pilot filed a different flight plan. The gate people kept us updated and you had the feeling they were trying to get us to our destination. We left a couple hours late and had a very skillful landing into some pretty stiff winds but landed safely.

I could upgrade to a good seat closer to the front. And I was the only one in my row maybe because people had canceled their flights. lol boarding was quick and simple. Good amount of over head space and room. Def easy going simple and had no issues

We only got cups of room temperature water I had to ask for ice and one passenger during boarding was on their phone being disruptive and loud and no one asked him to be quiet seeing as everyone was visibly annoyed.
