We were all trapped on board for about 4 or so hours without much communication from the crew or captain which made me very anxious. We arrived 5 hrs late and it put my whole trip in jeopardy. Based on this experience, I eont be inclined to use this airline again for future trip planning. This airline will need to work hard to earn my trust back because i felt physically and emotionally unsafe throughout the experience, many times."

Pros: "Flight was smooth"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."

Pros: "The food was pretty good and the staff were friendly. During our transfer in Paris, my mum had a medical emergency and had to go to the medical centre. As such wr couldnt go to our final destination in Morocco and had to get our luggage off the plane. The staff at the AF counter were very helpful in that aspect. And when one of the luggages was completely damaged, it was replaced it with a brand new one which was fantastic. On the way back, we had some issues with the ticket because we didnt go to Morocco as planned which resulted in some trouble checking in. But the staff at the counter were quite helpful."

Pros: "What’s not to like!"

Cons: "Very small seats, space for nothing All the time delays and the horrible things is a lost luggage, even when there is enough time between flights."

Cons: "The 3 hours delay"

Cons: "No leg room between seats"

Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."

Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."

Pros: "Nice Flight Attendants Good Food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1.5 hours"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth and the crew friendly. Flight ran on time."
Cons: "Unloading the baggage took over 90 minutes, and there was no explanation for the delay and nobody from Air France in sight on the ground in Boston."

Pros: "Food and service"
Cons: "Too many business class seats and the plane is so big it basically feels like flying on coach. You have two seats next to the window so it's exactly the same when trying to get up than in economy class with a passenger stuck next to you"

Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"

Cons: "My entertainment system did not work for the whole 8 hours. Seats were uncomfortable. The lights above the seats broken."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "Old airplane with very low amenities. Plane still had ashtrays"

Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."

Pros: "The aircrew are very friendly. The staff at CDG were very helpfull with our connecting flight."
Cons: "The seats are very cramped for tall people, especially when the passenger in front of you reclines their seat."

Pros: "Super comfortable even in coach (upstairs). I was impressed with service and quantity and quality of food. Would be pleased to fly them again."
Cons: "Seat did not recline as much as normal aircraft."

Pros: "The service & food were excellent! Outstanding. Boarding was efficient, crew was polite & helpful. I've never utilized such high-tech entertainment. It was great to be able to select movies, tv, music etc. whenever I was ready."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."

Pros: "Plane wasn’t full and left and arrived early!"
Cons: "Offering some kind of beverage"

Cons: "It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all"

Cons: "I already complained about the lateness of airlines. So it all still stands"

Cons: "How about not being 4 hours late."

Pros: "The crew was really nice and I like the cookies"
Cons: "."

Cons: "communication prevented me boarding my British flight, rerouting done by american, had paid reseved seat don't know if I will receive a refund. now have to spend my first few days back home going through the delayed flight to europe protocols."

Cons: "I was sitting in premium economy and there was no food left. Unacceptable on a long flight. Also on long flight they should give you the can to drink. One little cup of liquid and NO food not even a bag of pretzels or cookies was offered. They could have at least come around with water only later on"

Cons: "Communicating rules such as not going through the business class to loop around to the other aisle of the coach class is definitely acceptable however the tone in communicating this should never sound condescending and patronizing, esp over the PA. Flight staff shld refine her communication skills."

Cons: "Economy cabin is not meant for anyone over 6' tall. Worst seats I have experienced on any airline. My knees were jammed against the seat on front of me the entire flight. The seats lacked cushion. My legs became numb 20 minutes into the flight. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever experienced."

Pros: "yes thank you"
Cons: "all vary good"

Pros: "The service representative at check in was very helpful and went above and beyond to assist my husband and I. American Airlines was outstanding on all fronts."
Cons: "However my overall experience with kayak and csfare was poor as they made a mistake on the name on my ticket that was not found until the day of my international flight and once I got a hold of customer service after calling 4 different numbers... most did not have 24 hr service... they stated they were unable to assist me and had no other options or solutions. American Airlines tried to help and eventually were able to accommodate me through purchasing a new ticket and ensured my husband and I were still sitting together. Kayak and csfare basically told me sorry for your luck. I will not use this company again."

Cons: "Very confused as to why I am receiving messages regarding confirming flight and post flight review when I did not purchase this flight. I watched it, did NOT book it. I should not be charged for it."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Poor food choices for vegetarians"

Pros: "Flight was smooth."
Cons: "Flight arrived PHL early and no jetway as typical at PHL"

Cons: "AA cancelled my direct flight, booked me on flights thru Dallas and did not notify me"

Cons: "My flight got delayed at least 3 times!"

Pros: "They got me there on time"
Cons: "Long delay getting off STL-CLT. Made it to gate for CLT-ROC. Then, crew delay. The usual crammed interior, cheap snacks, feeling about like a public bus"

Pros: "The Pilot still got us here on time, even though we took off late"
Cons: "The flight attendant in my section was sharp & cranky. We never recieved snacks."

Pros: "Went smoothly as it should."
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't function well but that could have been more an airbus issue."

Pros: "The flight itself was fine and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "Didn't like getting herded onto a shuttle bus where most people had to stand packed in like sardines, only to idle for 15 minutes and drive in a circle back to the gate because there was something wrong with the plane. Then the ambiguous delay that lasted three hours."

Pros: "The staff was welcoming and it felt good!"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Although an email was received 3 hours before departure that everything was on schedule, we were told when checking in our whole itinerary had been changed to leave the next day. We had not been contacted and we missed our daughter’s professional basketball game in France. This was the reason we bought the tickets from Kayak to begin with. The cancellations were happening with British Airlines and they were not working with American Airlines to help us out to get to the game on time."

Pros: "Comfortable aircraft with an efficient and present crew."
Cons: "First, passengers had to wait in the main terminal for a bus ride to a remote terminal to wait to board. The only food items offered in first class were unhealthful packaged snacks. On a flight such as this, at 8:12 am, something like a breakfast wrap would be more appropriate, especially considering the fare charged."

Pros: "Decent boarding group, same snacks, same flight attendants (who were very nice)"
Cons: "My only gripe is that paying for an assigned seat is only allowed 48 hours before takeoff and costs at least $30, twice what Spirit charges to allow you to select a seat during booking, so it is worse. No one watched us to ensure that we didn’t use the overhead bins (a stipulation of the fare) but we did comply anyway. We chose to take our chances and were assigned seats at the gate 16 rows apart and both in the middle seat."

Pros: "Nothing - the flight from Chicago to Philadelphia was delayed by about 2 hours. Luckily, was able to get the flight switched to a Chicago - London direct flight."
Cons: "The connecting flight from Philadelphia to Manchester would've been missed. So, American Airlines booked the same flight for 24 hours later. Luckily, they offered a different flight. Due to the flight changes, the prepaid ground transportation from Manchester to Leeds wasn't used. Transportation from London to Leeds had to be purchased at a much greater additional expense."

Cons: "Seats very narrow. Not enough legroom."

Pros: "On-time departure from PHL; on-time arrival in RIC, my checked bag was on the flight."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Nothing. From the plane to the awful delay and poor service."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Old plane, no comfort and 6 HOURS DELAYED. Truly disappointed by the airline"

Pros: "On time and what was advertised. Considering that the flight was after Thanksgiving and very full, we still had a good experience."

Cons: "The crew was rude, one member complained the whole time saying she deserved a raise. We sat on the runway an hour because we were overweight and had to burn off fuel (which lead to me almost missing my connecting flight. they didn't ask before having someone sit next to me (when the seat was suppose to be free). was woken for every reason except food. check in was a nightmare and I was selected for extra checks (so I couldn't check in online). Terrible. Will never fly American Airlines again!"

Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the seating in biz class on the 787s is great. Lots of entertainment choices also"
Cons: "I think the service lacks to some extent given biz class is the highest level of service offered on this London flight. Seems like American lacks in this area"

Pros: "The crew was professional and very accommodating."
Cons: "Cramped quarters."

Pros: "Flew a 787, so pretty new aircraft. That meant good seat-back entertainment system. Got to watch 2 complete movies - one before we got off the ground. Keep reading..."
Cons: "The flight boarded just fine. Then, about the time we should have been pushing back from the gate, a flight attendant comes on the PA asking for a licensed doctor. Several minutes later, they announce that there's a medical emergency and EMTs are on the way. Said EMT comes down the aisle with a wheelchair. I assume they took that passenger off the back, because they didn't come back by me. We finally leave the gate only to find that the weather we were supposed to get out ahead of had now rolled in, and we're stuck on the taxiway for an hour and a half. Once we finally got airborne, things went well. When we arrived at LAX, we parked in a remote area and had to bus to the terminal. So, while none of this was really anything American could have prevented, it made the flight more of an ordeal."

Pros: "Poor attitude. Seemed as though they were doing us a favor serving us. Did not pick up garbage for at least an hour. Absolutely zero personality"
Cons: "I do not like flying American. Still sitting and waiting on my flight to Waco"

Pros: "No ac, left late. Can't pull in bc our gate is occupied. I never have complaints, but I'm hot and my back hurts."
Cons: "Prior flight had a problem Apparently. It affected our flight. Hot and tired. I want off.....still sitting here..."

Cons: "Flight was extensively delayed and had to remain inside the plane."

Cons: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."

Cons: "Seat broken tray table broken reading light did not work 15 total hours in the air and 7 of them the movie system did not work Paid for upgraded seat and did not get one - got moved to a standard seat."

Pros: "they would not let me up grade and there was plenty of room to upgrade"
Cons: "I am handicap and was not given a upgrade"

Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."

Pros: "The movies and free liquor!"
Cons: "The time it took"

Pros: "Ease of checking in by agent. Courteous and friendly staff. On time departure"

Cons: "Flight was delayed two hours then canceled."

Pros: "All of the flight attendants were amazing and went above and beyond."

Pros: "Flight took off and landed on time."
Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."

Cons: "I asked the woman at the gate prior to boarding if there were electrical outlets on the plane. She looked it up and said, its an Airbus, yes they have outlets at each seat. I didn't worry too much about charging my devices at my layover because I knew I could charge them on the plane. When I got on it was clear that there was no outlets, no video on the backs of seats, no devices being handed out for purchase. Nothing. I'm definitely used to more updated planes, but I would have been ok without the misinformation. I ended up on a 4 hr flight bored out of my gourd—which could have been avoided."

Cons: "On a 5.5 hour flight, a snack would have been nice. Crew needs to be friendlier like in the old days."

Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"

Cons: "The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight."
