On both legs of my trip, going out and coming home, the flights were delayed. I had to run through PHX to get from Term A to B because the delay left me with <20 mins to departure. Staying consistent, the departing flight was late and I made the flight. Seems that a schedule is just a suggestion on American
Everything was great. I was on a 777-300, where they have 4-class seating; I paid to upgrade to a suite in First from Business lie-flats at check-in, because it was only a couple hundred bucks, but would stay in Business next time.
Pros: "The snacks"
Cons: "They put WAY too many people on one flight, during Covid it just is not safe"
Cons: "the 2 stewardesses disappeared as soon as the flight was in the air. i upgraded to business class in what was a huge waste of money. the fact that they do not make alcohol available in business class is pure laziness, and these people are loving it. keep in mind that you can have water juice and pop. i was given the water i asked for after take off, and then she promptly disappeared for the entire 3 hours. she only returned when i pushed the call button. not good."
Pros: "The food and the crew totally good"
Cons: "Maybe the toilets, need to be clean at least once in a flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great. Friendky,.; Had the holiday spirit!"

Pros: "Clean airplane. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Leg room is too small"
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Pros: "Had a bulk head seat with no one sitting beside me and we landed early!"
Cons: "Maybe a gluten free snack option"
Cons: "We stay stuck in PVR"
Cons: "you didn't respond and we were unable to take the flight."
Cons: "I haven’t had such a terrible experience with another airline before. Missing out on dinner reservations. Wasting 12+ hours in airports. Spending more money at the food court than ever desired."
Pros: "Easy boarding, flight on time, friendly creew"
Cons: "old plane with seat not confortable for a 3h flight"
Cons: "i wasnt able to select a seat when I checked in. they couldn't give me a better seat before bording and the fact that Im the one approaching then to have a seat selection, no one called my name."

Pros: "The flight crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and when we arrived to the destination we were unable to land and the pilot made a brisk turn then the landing was rough. We also fad to wait about 45 minutes before we parked at the gate. I suppose the bad weather was to blame but it was very uncomfortable and would have appreciated better communication from the flight crew."
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "On time. No delays. Smooth landing"
Pros: "Jams you up with connections in Charlotte."
Cons: "Always running to make connections."
Cons: "The male flight attendant was incredibly rude, kept hitting my arms with his body with zero apologies. No manners when taking food and drink orders. Did not seem like he liked his job and in a customer service atmosphere this was extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Crew was friendly- organized everything well as far as getting everyone seated quickly and handing out refreshments"
Cons: "Very little leg room for anyone over five feet six inches! Happy to be 5’2” for a change!"
Pros: "But, the customer service was good."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "We got upgraded...Happy New Year to us!!! Service was excellent...landing was one of the smoothest we have ever had! Nice quiet flight with not too many people on board! I will use American Airlines again!"
Cons: "We are letting too many people with the flu, travel. This in turn is spreading it to other places and getting too many people sick. We need to control this more. I don’t have an option after spending all this money on if I can stay healthy or not, and that is not ok."
Cons: "We left late and then got stuck on the tarmac for almost 45 minutes upon returning."
Pros: "nice people taking care of us during the flight"
Cons: "in Miami, had to change gate 2 times, from D38 to E9,than to D7."
Cons: "It was advertised that one can see entertainment through WIFi, but from my iPad, i can't connect to this WiFi. I tried several times until I just gave up."

Pros: "Everything was on time!"
Pros: "Tons of entertainment options, friendly crew, flight was on time"
Cons: "My seat was not clean"
Pros: "Pulled from get on time. Short hold on runway. Easy landing."
Cons: "Still arriving in Washington where we have no gate. Being on time stinks because you still sit on runway. AT the destination. I would focus on quicker turn around and less accommodation of highly variable flight times in tight NE corridor"
Pros: "New Airbus Dreamliner is a nice plane."
Cons: "Not much"
Pros: "The American Air crew was great very attentive and they pass out free drinks"
Cons: "The 787 is tight and when the fight is 7 plus hours it tends to ware on you"
Pros: "No complaints. Keep up the good work, American!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that food has to be purchased. I liked it much better when the food was included in the price, as it still lives in the major international overseas airlines."
Pros: "The airline was great."
Cons: "It airfare.......I've never in my life had to deal with such an unprofessional company in my entire life! I'm honestly shocked that you use them considering your a creditable company. I was screamed and cursed at hung up on and also cancelled off my flight the morning of and then had to pay an additional $100 to get back onto the flight! When I checked online they have nothing but bad reviews. Unfortunately I will not be booking through kayak again in fear of having to deal with airfare."
Pros: "Much more legroom on this flight, even though it was a smaller aircraft."
Cons: "Gate agent seemed a bit overwhelmed. Helpful, but not overly friendly. In stark contrast to my earlier flight from Charlotte to Memphis, where the gentleman was extremely pleasant and cheerful."
Pros: "Everything.,Avianca crew was really great and helpful."
Cons: "The food was cold ,if not great service."
Pros: "Trouble free and on time. Got in early to the CLT connection and AA put me on an earlier flight to BOS on standby. Very smooth trip. Good job AA."
Cons: "Their check in was ridiculously slow-15-20 min per person at times. How is that possible? The flight was said to be 90 min delayed. I asked about getting on another airline. They said no. Finally this 1 hour flight was 3 hours late to Lima & I missed my international flight. Never again Avianca."
