Cons: "Better food menu!"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Nothing. I’ll never fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Literally everything. I spent 30 hours sitting in the Philadelphia airport and then had to buy a flight with SouthWest so that I could get home. Too bad my luggage is headed for Toledo."
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Cons: "My bags were not checked all the way to my destination, I had to get them re-tagged and checked for this part of the trip and the American Agent was EXTREMELY rude and made us pay oversized bagge fees even though our baggage was within the Qantas allowance, the main carrier for our flight."
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Cons: "It was not clear that I needed a different 6 letter code to checkin using the AA website. I finally got frustrated and called AA only to find out the code was different. The codes should have been the same or you should have referenced it on the website when I tried to check in"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Not getting service even SW served on 45 min flight"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and I missed a connection in Dallas so I had to get a flight with Delta, but the staff was very helpful getting me that flight."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Cons: "Delayed for mechanical."
Pros: "The crew are always excellent."
Cons: "The comfort is horrible. Airline companies keep shrinking the seats and charging more. Also they keep serving less food. And flight changes."
Cons: "The baggage customer service said the crew will wait for us, but they never did. THANKS for NOTHING!"
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "After the nearly 9 hours of delays, the seemingly hastily assembled crew appeared to be equally annoyed, but got us through to MIA."
Cons: "Same. The flight crew and stewards were mostly also angry in demeanor."
Cons: "Not enough leg room for tall people unless you pay extra."
Pros: "On-time arrival"
Cons: "They lost a bag and then took nearly an hour to do the lost luggage report. Handoffs among three staffers (one disappeared)."
Pros: "Great food, professional conduct"
Cons: "Couldn't control window tint after we left California"
Cons: "Beyond pritzzels pls have other snack varieties"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "pretty comfortable seats"
Cons: "45 minute delay from Punta Cana Flight crew lets passengers switch seats and sit wherever they want. Screaming children were put in the row in front of me, which I know they didn't pay for(and I payed extra for my seat)"
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Pros: "when different flight left Chicago to London, crew and food was good. Entertainment helped with long flight"
Cons: "The maintenance issue took 3 hours to confirm and then when flight was cancelled, there was no announcement over the loud speaker to tell us so we could line up for rebooking attempts. Then was a rush to try to get in right line to make next flights to connect through to Paris."
Pros: "The economy seats were relatively spacious and had a full TV menu and outlet to charge devices."
Cons: "For a red eye they could perhaps ask people to turn off their lights, but it doesn't matter."
Cons: "The handle for the window shade was torn off"
Pros: "We did not take this flight when its schedule was moved back, instead taking one LHR-SEA that would get us home at a reasonable hour."
Cons: "The change by British Air in flight departure/arrival times. The resulting adjustment was costly and we were unable to get "extra" seating on the long leg of the trip by the time we were notified of the changes."
Cons: "I am million miler in Korean air. It's a seven star airlines"
Cons: "My outbound flight to Manila had an overnight layover in Japan. I asked at the luggage check-in at O'Hare International Airport if they can check it all the way through as I had planned to go outside of the Narita airport for the layover. They told me I couldn't check the luggage all the way through and that I had to pick it up from baggage claim once I land in Narita. From there I had to check-in the luggage again on the same day. When I took my luggage out from baggage claim, I tried to check-in and the counter crew told me I was given wrong information. I had to keep my luggage with me until my flight the following day. On my return flight from Manila and another overnight layover in Narita, the check-in crew at NAIA told me I could check-in my luggage all the way through, and that they also allowed this at my outbound flight to Manila. The check-in crew at O'Hare International Airport gave me wrong information."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The television was in the aisle and couldn't be properly seen. Also there was no outlet charger. During boarding, even thou they called by group number, the crew allowed a queue in the front, making it confusing who was in line and who wasn't. Better wait till the end to board that get in that mess"
Pros: "Safe, smooth, on time flight."
Cons: "Older plane. This was my return trip and the pane I took to my destination was much nicer. I feel like I should get a discount for an older plane."
Pros: "The whole crew was great. Made the trip go buy quickly."
Cons: "Luggage did not arrive with us"
Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."
Cons: "For an airline that has been around as long as they have, their customer service is lacking signicantly. Communication was lacking to the passengers. As far as helpful, I cannot say they I witnessed anyone being helpful or trying to make a pleasant experience. The flight attendants seemed lacking in knowledge, friendliness, consideration, or empathy."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
Pros: "SAME AS ABOVE."
Cons: "SAME AS ABOVE."
