Cons: "More details on the map, for example, show landforms, mountain ranges, major roadways, rivers, etc."
Cons: "Just doesn’t compare to the new 787’s"
Pros: "Easy boarding"

Pros: "Crew, seats, and smoothness of ride."
Cons: "You have to pay for seats to sit with your travel partner."
Pros: "Very smooth boarding process. Made an announcement early that later groups would have issues with finding overhead space and asked for volunteers to check bags at the gate at no charge. Made things go very well without any delays."
Cons: "Nothing to improve. Very well run."
Pros: "We finally got here."
Cons: "Communication about the delay , which gate we were leaving from, having an entertainment system that worked (they said I could use my device with the app downloaded, but it did not work, I kept getting an error)."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "seat comfort was not good Seats are too crowded and not comfortable for those that are curvier."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Boarding and deplaning was quick. Flight was on time"
Cons: "WiFi was super slow"
Pros: "The seats in first class. But far from adequate amenities for the price paid. There are no USB ports nor are there electric Outlets, yet you're expected to use your own tablet or phone to access their entertainment. When flying across the country that's a little ridiculous in this day and age."
Cons: ". If you expect us to use our own devices you need to provide USB port or outlets. This was a coast to coast redeye,Iwas awake the whole flight. 20 min before landing announcement was made to not get up, We were not given time to use the restroom, brush teeth, have coffee before landing. Bad form."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seats that worked"
Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable and clean. The seats were larger than those on other economy flights. In flight wi fi entertainment was great, as long as you have a device."
Cons: "The flight was delayed from 9:35 PM to 10:15. No announcements were made at the gate. We were all standing around (no seats left) and only had text or email notifications informing us. I overheard crew say it was entirely avoidable, and the fault of some crew that weren't at the right place on time"
Pros: "nice flight attendant"
Cons: "had to board and squeeze into a bus to ride out to the plane. Had to stand for a really long time waiting for all passengers to gert on bus"
Cons: "In-flight snacks and lack of working entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Cons: "To many delays."
Pros: "That I could watch movies"
Cons: "How complicated it was to watch movies. Look at Netflix, they know how to do it right."
Pros: "The crew on this flight was excellent. Very respectful and kind in their answers."
Cons: "AA should really do something about their food selection as the cost of improving the food they can give economy class will not cost anymore than what they give now."
Pros: "Great service and sweet attendants"
Cons: "Person next to me was a little large and it was uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight delayed multiple times and then again upon landing at destination."
Cons: "Seats are so uncomfortable! Too close together"
Cons: "Delayed for mechanical."
Cons: "7.5 hr flight from Lisbon to Philadelphia on a dingy old plane that looks like it hasn’t been retrofitted in close to 20 years, with no charging ports for electronics, which seems insane in this day and age, especially for such long flights. Had no in-seat entertainment systems either, and only offered news and sports on the American wi-fi service — not their usual lineup of movies and TV."
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: "Everyone was nice"
Cons: "No gluten free snacks. Flight was late"
Cons: "Food could have been better. Plane was 1/2 full. WiFi was not giving all the movies. Only 6 or 7 to choose from."
Pros: "Great service"
Cons: "Qantas would not let me upgrade at 24 hours into Business Class. They wanted me to buy a whole new ticket. All other international flights I take allow me to pay for an upgrade within 24 hours of the flight for around $2000."
Pros: "everything was on par to most travels until we got to miami."
Cons: "they lost a container of bags for over 2 hours!! i was supposed to have a 6-hour layover (i had 2 separate tickets) and had a spa appt at the ritz i had to cancel and pay for because you couldn't locate a container of bags for 2-hours. i feel bad for people with a connecting flight who didn't get home with their luggage. ruined the homecoming."
Pros: "Great people"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Pros: "The flight departed on time, landed early, had plenty of entertainment, and the crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Check-in was problematic: the first agent claimed my luggage allowance was only one checked bag, even though the ticket said 2. Had to wait in a second line to fix it."
Pros: "I liked that the internet connection was free because I am a T-Mobile customer."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was a bit clumsy. I felt like everyone was tripping over each other since the front of the plane was boarding first."
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No safety briefing for infants, rude gate staff, primitive fleet, terrible customer service at all levels."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and friendly. They tried the best that they could given the circumstances."
Cons: "My flights were delayed so I missed my connection. I had to fly a red-eye from San Fran to Boston getting in at 6AM with meetings that started at 10AM...had to BUY a day-pass at the Admirals Club (I feel this could have been provided as it was mechanical issues that caused the delays). THEN my trip from Boston home were delayed so they switched me to another flight and then THAT one was delayed twice so I actually got home later than if I had taken the original flight! Overall the flights really sucked!!"
Pros: "I had never flown coach and decided to try it at a ridiculously low price. It was fine. I slept well and the service was above expectation for Coach"
Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"
Pros: "Rveything ok i noticed American keeps lights low for people rest unlike other airlines"
Cons: "Everything fine considering hours in plane also note passing out fooda all once jal toyko manila didnt like"
Cons: "delayed so long we missed our connection"
Cons: "The emergency exit row window seats are extremely uncomfortable. Seats don't recline and there is no arm rest along the wall. Also, there were no vegetarian options aboard and the flight attendants didn't make any effort to put together something I could eat."
Cons: "Mejorar el snack"
Pros: "Love the new entertainment on your own phone"
Cons: "Boarding took forever due to people's luggage in the overhead."
Pros: "On time. Good crew and nicer flight."

Cons: "The staff was very informative"
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"
Cons: "It would be nice to have a little more room on airplanes anymore..."
Cons: "The bathroom on the flight from Denver to Santa Barbara was the WORST EVER! I doubt it has ever been cleaned and the poor people that had seats near or at the rear of the plane should have been refunded their money having been subjected to the smell of an “indoor outhouse!” Shameful!!"
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Puddle jumper so very basic n"
Cons: "Cold air streaming from the storage bins."
Pros: "United- I cannot believe that the computer assigned seats in the last row since we have been United/Continental frequent fliers for over 30 years. We will always choose Delta over United based on our experience on Saturday/Sunday."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was great. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "There was very little room for my legs and I couldn't rest my arm on the seat next to me since the person on my left took over. It made my flight much worse. It is difficult to fly overnight when you are so uncomfortable and the price was very high in the economy area."
Pros: "Flight was quick"
Cons: "better coffee"
Pros: "Crew was kinda rude"
Cons: "nothing much"
Pros: "The seats on this airplane are very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight left late, crew a bit unorganized seating passengers."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Cheap seats. And why were we not seated together when we booked way in advance?"
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: "Customer service in Mexico City is horrible!"
Cons: "Better training for customer service!"
Pros: "Helpful staff and smooth flight. No connections or Hassels"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed safely, and pretty much on time."
Cons: "Smallest cabin seats I’ve ever been in. Oversold plane. Bored, uninterested flight attendants. Free DirecTV for some passengers, $8 for others. Peanuts and water/coffee grudgingly served, but lots of enthusiasm for opening a United Credit Card. I will pay more for a different airline next time - just for normal sized seats."
Pros: "They were very friendly and helpful to unapproved toddlers and while we waited on the tarmac for incrlemnt weather (not United’s fault)."
Pros: "The crew was cool very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Too cramped and took forever to board"
Pros: "Free movies"
Cons: "Sat on plane for two hours after we boarded waiting to take off"

Cons: "Cramped plane. Not enough space. Late boarding and then sat on the tarmac for a while."
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: "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."
Pros: "Small planes make it easier to embark and disembark. It was on schedule on both legs, but changing terminals (on a bus) for the connecting flight was a drag."
Cons: "These are very small planes with little seating room. Thankfully, the flight was very short. C"
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"

Pros: "They let us deboard plane after they found out it was delayedcrew did give out extra snacks. And gave out pillows and blankets to some people"
Cons: "They didn't give us frequent updates. Even after pilots landed they took a while to leave."
Pros: "The plane boarded smoothly and on time"
Cons: "The flight attendants ran over my foot with the cart and they kept bumping people as they went down the isle. I don't blame them for bumping into the passengers as much as the aisles being too narrow. The worst part, however, was the television. On my flight to California two weeks ago we had free television and movies. On the flight today we couldn't get anything without paying eight dollars. Ridiculous!!!"
Pros: "I was too sick to wait in the airport between flights and my husband came up to Denver and picked. Me up."
Pros: "Speed and friendly staff"
Pros: "Flew on Delta Airlines"
Cons: "Had to run to Delta and barely made that connection."
Pros: "Updated interior. Those new seats make it feel like a lot more room."
Pros: "The flight itself was okay"
Cons: "We were delayed 5 hours. When we got to Orlando the gate would not work and after another delay we were pushed back from that gate to another gate, almost another hour. No shuttle service in the airport at 1:30am. We had to wait for someone to operate it."
Pros: "There was one really nice flight attendant but it looked like she had to do everything! I never saw the other person who was supposed to help her."
Cons: "We were stuck on the Tarmac when we arrived for an hour. They said it was because of lightning but the storm had passed in 20 minutes so for 40 minutes it was just raining. We had no idea what was going on."
Pros: "Larger plane, great comfort. Nice staff!"
Cons: "You have to pay for wifi, nothing to look at during flight."
Pros: "I had an empty row."
Cons: "Waiting for boarding an extra 30mins. Waiting for departure an extra 30mins. All after having my gates switched, and walking accros the concourse just to get to it."
Cons: "The 2 hour delay"
Pros: "I like that they waited for me before they took off"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for 3 hours. They did provide free movies and extra snacks for some passengers."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and snacks were average"
Cons: "The seat back was very uncomfortable but this was a short flight with a small plane. Not terrible but below average."
Cons: "Boarding was 15-20 minutes late, no one at the counter. Bumpy flight due to turbulence due to weather."
Pros: "For my first time flying every thing was great. Crew was friendly. Flight was early. Ready to book another flight!!"
Pros: "Airline attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "No wifi and a very small plane. The plane was also extremely cold. There was very cold air blowing at my feet and I was so cold on the flight I was shivering. I had to lift my feet up or place them under my bag to keep them from being so cold. The Newark airport in terminal A did not have many food options and security did not honor TSA precheck. It was also extremely dirty and poorly organized."
