Pros: "Crew was amazing"
Pros: "My seat mate"
Cons: "The flight attendant"
Pros: "The crew did a great job. The seat was uncomfortable after such a long flight. But that is to be expected, I guess. The lady, kicking our seats behind us, because she felt it was disrespectful to recline your seat, even during a 9 hour flight, was the only drawback. But the crew responded approp"
Cons: "The best part about the food was the ice cream. The rest of the food was lackluster, but what I expected on a flight. The lady kicking our seats behind us because she thought it was disrespectful to recline made for an uncomfortable flight. The rest was as good as expected on American Airlines"
Cons: "Could give more time before baggage and check in. Arrived exactly one hour before flight and ohh my god........ Management however pulled some miracle...."
Cons: "Our extra legroom premium seats didn’t feel like we had much more room. No TVs, WiFi that didn’t work...left a lot to be desired. I know the standards are pretty low in the US compared to other countries, but for a plane that seemed relatively new, the lack of standard technology seemed cheap."
Pros: "Very kind flight attendant. Flight on time."
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work."
Pros: "Flight attendants were great."
Pros: "Ok trip"
Cons: "Could not watch movies on app or website.. “technical dificulties” made the trip longer and dull"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "Power outlets at some seats"
Cons: "Little entertainment choices, no complimentary food, late, charged for even the most basic seat selection"
Cons: "They have very long and annoying credit card announcements"
Pros: "nice gate, crew Very efficient boarding Very quick and efficient takeoff Rosario"
Cons: "We have a 4 hrs flight nothing to eat wasn't offere, when we arrive to Mexico we have to pick up our luggage from one gate to and other far away! Very frustrating because I have to take other flight to Veracruz, it supposed that I have to pick up everything when arriving in Veracruz. Rosario"
Pros: "Nothing, this was a miserable flight."
Cons: "Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it."
Cons: "One of the stewardess felt like she was at her house with unwanted visitors, I guess. Very senile and careless attitude"
Cons: "It's was my kids first time fying and no entertainment. Wi-Fi didn't work. And the kandng was a bit scary."
Pros: "Flt on time crew and staff very polite"
Cons: "delayed. and boarding crew had no clue how to handle boarding. senile behaviour of a specific old lady"
Cons: "A two-stop flight turned into a three-stop flight and lost connecting flights!"
Cons: "The snacks."
Pros: "It was a really fast flight. Twenty minutes from wheels-up to wheels-down."
Cons: "Plane is more suitable for passengers under 5'11". At 6'7", I wasn't an ideal passenger!"
Cons: "Delays again. Can American. Ever be on time?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks, food, better eat a 7 eleven, confort very very baf"
Cons: "American flight attendant service"
Pros: "On time, non stop"
Cons: "New higher prices for less service."
Cons: "My seat was considered "Premium." The pull out table was dirty and broken. Was not able to use it for eating or holding a drink. Food was inedible. Plane was old so there were a few screens for the whole cabin. The screen was poorly located so unable to watch programs offered."
Cons: "Delays, broken plane, not even a water while waiting . Took 8 hours to get to provedence RI from Chicago. Crew was not friendly!"
Cons: "a little delay in the departure connection flight ."
Cons: "Unexplained delay, more than 4 hours. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time & staff were pleasant & effective"
Pros: "We were delayed because of weather yet the crew kept us aware of what was going on and still got us there on time. Great crew. Very polite and professional."

Pros: "American Airlines has alot more commodities than most"
Cons: "Alaska sold passengers to American"
Pros: "Good space on first."
Cons: "The boarding process is not organized, even if you're flying first you have to "elbow" your way in. The headphones or the connection are wrong the noise coming of it is terrible, couldn't watch a single movie. Unusable. Tried moving it around and changing for another unsuccessfully."
Cons: "Leg room - i feel like it's the smallest of any carrier worldwide."
Cons: "Fast boarding on coach."
Cons: "no entertainment! Nothing. On the flight from Mex City to LAX the bathroom facilities were so limited that some Economy class passengers had to try to use the business class or first class facilities' An FA then came on the intercom and said Economy class must only use their own facilities and this is according to an FAA regulation. THat is a straight out lie. If you eliminate bathrooms from Economy class to squeeze in more seats this problem will persist. American Airlines should be ashamed of itself."
Pros: "The flights left on time and arrived early. It reminded me of the old days when everything ran like clock-work."
Cons: "The leg room was barely enough for me and I'm 5'4". I can't imagine people much larger than me being comfortable at all. Also, the chair made my back hurt, so I did a lot of sitting up straight as opposed to being "in the chair". I noticed that you had snacks for purchase on the flight, but the free snacks were cookies and pretzels. It would be nice to offer a trail mix or dried fruit. Pretzels are good for people who might be a little sick at their stomach, but better snacks are a nice option. I ordered coffee and it was perfect. Overall, the flight was a good flight, just a little tweaking and it would be great. Thanks for asking."
Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew allowed us to move to open row of seats"
Cons: "It seemed that asking for extra service was an imposition on the 'gossip session' for the crew standard fare of biscuits"
Pros: "The crew, boarding went smooth"
Cons: "The seats too close ,I drop one paper I could hardly bend over I am 5ft tall"
Cons: "The automatic machines wouldn't check me in. The lazy who checked me in manually have me wrong information about my luggage. The affect on the Mexico side have me MORE wrong information about my luggage. Ultimately, my luggage was lost. Still waiting for them to find it."
Cons: "The most horrendous costumer service & treatment from AA employees aether in the LAX airport and on the phone by costumer service."
Cons: "May be better food choices. Overall I was happy with the flight!"
Cons: "Strange reasons for delay."
Pros: "A pleasant trip without issues"
Pros: "I didn’t die."
Cons: "I researched United’s, FAA, and my car seat company website before trying to board with it. I was told by flight attendant that I could only bring the car seat on board if it had a sticker? I don’t know what sticker she was referring to and it’s tough to keep a toddler safe with just a lap belt"
Cons: "I will never arrive to this airport again. It’s too difficult to go to manhattan (especially on Sunday) it’s not worthy to save a few bucks to spend more than one hour in the taxi"

Cons: "Out flight was supposed to leave by 11:10 PM. United kept delaying the flight until 2 AM when they announced they flight was delayed to 8AM the following morning. At that point we had to stand for 1.5 hours in line in customer service with no information as to why this had happened. By the time we were with customer service it was too late to go to a hotel to sleep, so we had to sleep in the floor of the airport. The flight boarded to leave by 8 AM but we were again delayed in the runway 2 more hours. The last explanation the gave us was that the copilot never showed up. I do not recommend flying with United Airlines."

Cons: "That there was no one at gate to direct us to customer service being that most of us missed our flight due to equipment repair and hold up from Newark. I fly delta most of my trips. When this happens with them. They have a rep at the gate to help you. Also. There were only two people at the customer service desk for all of us. You should have had all four stations available to expedite the process of reschedualling. Everyone one agreed that united just did not care. So sad. We had a very tired infant with us. What should have been a short twenty minute flight turned into two hours."
