Pros: "comfortable plane."
Cons: "Kay&k was awful. Never use them again."

Cons: "Seats are too close"
Pros: "Crew was nice and made sure we were all comfortable before taken off :)"
Cons: "I was thirsty on the way back but we were not offered anything to drink so I waited till we landed to buy a drink, other then that was very enjoyable. Plan on using America airlines again"
Cons: "Old aircraft ...what’s with the non-assignment of seats until the last minute unless you pay extra !"
Pros: "Entertainment available excellent"
Cons: "Seating space seems to narrow"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "didn't get my flight you said booking was guaranteed refund 24 hours but when i call to change or refund you said the airline would not change or refund. you didn't live up to your end. if you refund i would consider tat but for now. i would never use kayak again and will post my experience"
Cons: "you could have change my return when i called 2 hours after or 18 hours after now i have to pay 500 to get home you should live up to your rules and refund my money"
Cons: "When I checked in on line, I was asked to choose my seat. However, there were no seats available that were free of added charge. I had to pay another $50.00 for a seat. I do believe, when I have a confirmed ticket, I should not have to pay an additional charge for a seat."

Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The flight attendant"
Cons: "Service was poor."
Pros: "Price, entertainment, direct flight"
Cons: "Plane left because pilot was late, little to no legroom for a 6"2 person. Boarding procedure is a joke. Instead of their group system the plane should be boarded from the back. By the time group 8 comes on board there is no room in the overhead bins."
Pros: "Prompt on time service."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Far and away the most uncomfortable and worst value-for-money international flight I've experienced. This plane is so old it should be put in a museum. The warm food was terrible and the non-hot food was completely frozen so even if I wanted to eat it, this wouldn't be possible. Individual seat in-flight entertainment screens have been the norm for many years, yet this plane had the community-style in-flight entertainment. Half of the time, the screens weren't working, which just made matters worse. The total lack of legroom and chair ergonomics made getting comfortable nearly impossible. I was literally in pain sitting in these seats. I live in Prague and visit family in the US often. This was my first experience with American Airlines' newer direct flight option from Prague to Philadelphia; based on the extreme discomfort of the inflight features and to top it off it was the highest price I've paid for a flight back home...(total lack of value for the money! )I would go out of my way to make sure I never take this route again."
Pros: "Flt on time crew and staff very polite"
Cons: "7pm flight, received flight delayed notification at 11am that day. How do you anticipate a delay 8 hours prior to a flight. Delay allowed me about 10 minutes to sprint through the lovely Charlotte airport. To finish off my trip, American Airlines manages to misplace my carry on that was required to be tagged and stowed. I handed it to the individual right outside the plane to be stowed. How does the bag not get in the same plane?!?"
Pros: "Seats which we selected where great"
Cons: "I would have like the opportunity of moving up to preferred seating. Would be willing to purchase it"
Cons: "They changed my flight schedule that made me have to arrange my travel plan"
Cons: "Someone stole an ipad and that forced us the be delayed for 2 hours"
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!"
Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Cons: "Delays again. Can American. Ever be on time?"
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."
Cons: "Plane was late missed the connecting flight. Aer Lingus/American Airlines refused to help us find another flight to Dublin. I called Vagama customer service and the attended refused to help get an additional flight or confirm our returning flight would be held."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "No personal TV’s and no food for purchase"
Cons: "The layover was too short we missed our connecting flight. How did Kayak even allow us to book such an itinerary. Staff with the airline was also rude! Never will I book with site ever again!Rude"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "American airlines lost my bag... Customer service in LAX is non-existent."
Pros: "Lucked out with extra legroom seat. Seat was broken though."
Cons: "The whole customs process is a seemingly endless mess."
Cons: "The cleaniless of the flight can get better"
Pros: "Flying AA. Excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "My daughter is in a wheelchair. She was a carry on (I e I carry her on board). The staff knew this but failed to notify the airport. Hence, we had to deplane without a jetway. I didn’t. The steep stairs made it unsafe. Had to wait a long time for a handcranked lift. No one really knew what they were doing and they wanted to put her in an adult wheelchair in spite of my identifying safety issues. My daughter was scared and upset. Epic failure on AA’s part. Communication breakdown on many levels. Shameful."
Pros: "Great Wifi! After reading bad reviews it was actually ok. Flew business on the A319 (single aisle plane) and it reminded me of qantas 737. I think for a short haul day flight I may just put up with economy instead for the price. Food is ok. I think with AA you have to pick your aircraft, it makes a difference what plane you fly as to what you get in business class. FA's were great. Overall I'd fly them again. Food was ok."
Cons: "They asked everyone to put the window shades down but I fly window seat because I like looking out! It was a day flight too! LAX T4 lounge is being refurbished so you need to go to T5 and make sure it's not the regional lounge!"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "the choice of movies was great. I two very well presented selections."
Cons: "Outside of one drink service we never saw or heard from the crew. Not one food item for purchase was ever offered. I am glad I ate in the terminal or it would have been bad for me."
Cons: "The service had much to be desired. The stewardess who was serving our section was curt and rude. Whenever I would ask for a napkin (that she had forgotten to give with my drink, I might add) or any other questions, she would come off as annoyed and as if I was testing her patience, which I did not appreciate as I had been having a horrible experience with American Airlines as it was. Also, why do you not serve milk with your coffee? The flight only served half and half, and I cannot have cream in my coffee at all. So unless you want to clean up my diarrhea in your toilets, I suggest you start giving options. It's not like milk is a scarce delicacy in the US. How is it that other airlines offer both milk and cream, but I get told by your staff, rudely, that half and half "is milk" and that it's all you have? Unbelievable. I hate to be a b*** but honestly this isn't the first time that I got treated like this on AA. I always seem to have a horrible experience with this airline."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "not much"
Cons: "Old plane and the movie app kept cutting out"
Pros: "They crew tried their hardest"
Cons: "There was no one at the gate to deplane us in Toronto. There for I missed my westjet connection home by 5 minutes. I was looking at the plane by the jet way unable to get on. AA staff would not pay for a hotel for being so late to Toronto because the wether was not thier fault, which I agree. But the lack of staffing was and a hotel should have been provided to me due to this. I will never fly America Airlines again due to my incoming flight to Toronto and the out bound to Philadelphia (cancelled on the way to Philly for no apparent reason)."
Pros: "Renovated planes, modern entertainment options that were free, charging by outlets."
Cons: "Overbooked flight, poor resource management, nickel & diming for snacks on a 5hr flight, lounge access (not Priority Pass, charge $60 for a single visit), no room for onboard luggage, safety video fluff"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and boarding went smoothly. The seat had more room under the seat in front of me, my purse was not jammed in."
Cons: "I hate paying extra for almost every seat on the plane. It's a con job. Food selection was terrible. If I'm paying anyway, give me better choices. No monitors in plane at all. Entertainment needs to be viewed on a tablet or laptop of some sort."
Cons: "If the airlines was able to help finding my pierce that was missed at the security or the craft"
Pros: "Was actually an Air Canada flight. AC has much better seating in Economy Class. Seats have more room and more recline."
Cons: "United made no effort to alert us to the fact that we were actually flying Air Canada. Our rewards upgrade to Business Class was not honored.Extremely misled!"
Pros: "Just another 4 hour delay featuring United. By the time we took off the storm in Toronto had started and it completely ruined my plans."
Cons: "Be on time"
Pros: "Crew worked hard under difficult circumstances but flight was not well equipped"
Cons: "First we boarded and then had to deviate and move to a different delayed flight. No head sets, tv did not work , seat was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Fine, perfectly adequate for a tiny plane on a short flight."
Cons: "There are so many airlines in the world that refresh their fleets. This was like a trip back in time to airlines of the 1980s."
Pros: "great job over all."
Pros: "The agent at the gate quickly realized the problem and was able to put me an exit row, which was a nice consolation, but if the flight had been full, I don’t know what would have happened."
Cons: "I was bumped from my first class seat with very little explanation why, and wasn’t even informed until the boarding process was underway. My name was never called at the gate before boarding as a “Mr Smith, please come to the gate”, and it was very embarrassing to be pulled out of line like that."
Cons: "Strange reasons for delay."
Pros: "Crew was good. Food was ok."
Cons: "Athens check and security processes caused huge delays resulting in our missing our connection in Toronto and having to spend the night. NONE of the entertainment systems worked on the flight. We were rebooked without an opportunity to make our original flight which was possible. Agent also unkind"
Cons: "Roomier Seats more isle space and comfortable seating. Better head sets"
Pros: "The customer service wait is extremely long especially when u get hung up on and start all over . But one man was very helpful in changing to accommodate me next day"
Pros: "Staff was nice. Comfy seats."
Cons: "They had to check mom's little bag, so we had to move things into her carry on that she needed."
Pros: "It’s ok. The airplane is not comfortable. It’s old and small"
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "United 737-800 seats are cramped. The flight was severely delayed due to weather, and United did not do well in communicating that well. We had to wait 38 minutes after arriving in Toronto for baggage to start arriving in the baggage hall. United did not provide customs cards prior to arrival."
Pros: "Landing safely"
Cons: "Late departure. Poor food sale selection"
Pros: "The flight captain made up the total time that the flight was delayed, good take off & good landing, got us to Toronto on time. Thanks."
Cons: "Male flight crew could be better - first do your job of giving out the immigration forms then chat, not complete handing them out just one minute before landing so passengers can de-plane & then fill out the forms"
Cons: "The flight leaving Houston was delayed by over an hour due to some problems finding another captain for the flight thus extending the layover time by at least four hours. As a result I didn't get back to Toronto until around 12:30 in the morning. Otherwise everything else was fine."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and very helpful and kind. The flight was delayed but the crew was positive and boarding was very fast and efficient."
Cons: "The morning snack had egg and I am allergic to egg so I could not eat it. There was no non-dairy creamer for my coffee."
Pros: "The crew was great, the seat was very comfortable. The flight was quick and seamless."
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"
Pros: "The crew in the plane was very nice. The pilot gave us many updates. There was available entertainment on flight."
Cons: "The plane was again delayed. 4 flights with United, ALL 4 flights delayed. Plane is not quite comfortable. Boarding was messy. Could use lane for group 1 once they are boarded for all the other groups or have 2 ppl boarding for faster smoother turn around."
Cons: "US Gov shutdown a pain to get thru customs and security. cabin crew on flight to YYZ was terrible."
Pros: "Even though we boarded late, things moved along and we got out just a few minutes late."
Cons: "We boarded late because they told us they were cleaning the plane from the previous flight, but when we finally got on, the floor under my seat was still dirty, so I don’t know what they were doing...."
Pros: "Was good and all went well."
Cons: "Flight delayed until 8pm then sat on the plane in Toronto for 45 minutes waiting for a gate and because we were sent to a parking area with numerous other planes and ended up getting boxed in and couldn’t get to our gate earlier. Nothing offered to the passengers during this time, not even water."
Pros: "Entertainment screens were a nice addition and had plenty of options including movies and solitaire."
Cons: "I was near the back of the plane and they ran out of most food options by the time the flight attendants reached me. The plane appeared to be newly upgraded. The design of the bathrooms, however, was problematic. The sink water faucets splashed water outside the sink and by the end of the flight there were huge puddles of water on the floor. It was also difficult for the flight attendants to navigate their beverage and meal carts around the people waiting in line for the bathrooms."
Cons: "Almost six hours late in Toronto Missed all connections No hotel No transportation No shave kit Exhausted"
Pros: "Everything was great and i hate flying"
Pros: "Crew was great"

Cons: "Late by almost an hour"
Cons: "No seatback screens."
Cons: "For the second time in a row, the Houston Airport crew did not transfer the luggages to Air Canada."
Pros: "Delay, delays delayed !!!"
Cons: "Definitely delayed"
Pros: "Greg care and service from those stationed on board."
Cons: "Very long walk from aircraft to immigration"
Pros: "Had own entertainment did not use however like the app availability. Considering all of the weather delays I am very impressed and happy with service."
Cons: "Unfortunately there were no hot beverages, but cold were served."
Pros: "The crews and staff were competent and helpful."
Cons: "The seat pitch and width isn't worth the price of the flight. Some passengers winced some when they saw where they would be seatied in the cramped cabin. For the plane type, I would think not much can be done for the width, but the tight seat pitch is very tight for most of the people that fly."
Pros: "Amazing plane with great features! Incredible staff!"
Cons: "Bathrooms should be bigger"
Pros: "Crew were all friendly and trip went very smooth in the air. Havent flown for years so computer checkins were a bit overwhelming at first but staff again very helpful. thanks for a great experience Mildred Johnson"
