Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment."
Cons: "More refreshments for longer flights."
Pros: "Comfort and service was great."
Cons: "The severe delays was frustrating and not getting enough information about it."
Pros: "They were late and and tried to blame weather"

Cons: "The person next to me"
Pros: "The crew onboard was very good."
Cons: "My 4 year old daughter and I were not seated together and I was told that a 4year old could not sit alone yet Delta refused to move anyone. Instead I had to get on board and beg someone to please wait h seats with us."

Pros: "It's a fast flight and boarding was quick."
Cons: "The terminal at LGA airlines is terrible."
Cons: "Plane was Boarded and we sat for over an hour waiting on fuel. Minimizing the wait time on the plane should be considered prior to boarding. The practice of getting us on the plane to make us wait shhould be stopped. It will creat a much more relaxed and smooth delay if we are allowed to be in the terminal."

Cons: "Flight delay further to the 30 minutes additional 20 min due to crew being not there"
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to make sure they got the plane ready as quickly as possible and get us to Jacksonville as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Delta lost the plane for over an hour. After already spending 10 hours in ATL because of an earlier delay due to human error I was extremely disappointed in Delta that my flight out of Atlanta was delayed by an hour because they LOST the plane and couldn’t find it or the truck to bring it to the gate. This kind of error on Xmas eve is embarrassing. Delta didn’t do anything for the passengers affected by this. I was dumbstruck by the apathy of the Delta employees at the gate (the exception was the flight crew, who tried to get the aircraft there earlier). Because Delta did nothing but make error after error I arrived at home 11 hours later than my original flight was booked for on Christmas Eve, missing Christmas Eve Services and family traditions. When I need to get somewhere on time I’ll never rely on Delta after this experience."
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight very smooth"
Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"
Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."
Cons: "No entertainment, no power outlets, no food, crappy overhead bins"
Pros: "Service was exceptional, flights were on time and in some case, early, and communication throughout was clear!"
Cons: "Everything was on time, but we had to sit on tje runway for more that 30 mins which made us late all around. But aside from that everything feom Delta from dropping of bags to Landing in Miami was perfect."
Cons: "start from the back to the front for god's sake! crew is often focused more on process than customer service."
Pros: "everything on schedule; courteous staff and great pilots"
Cons: "everything was very ordinary so cannot complain"
Pros: "on time"
Cons: "Super small plane"
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class since my flight was overbooked and I had to miss my original flight"
Cons: "Security for traveling to US is a very time consuming with long lines and in my mind useless process which does not make me feel any more secure - just wasting time and resources."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Unfriendly sataff. Not informed that we have to me know in with a difrnt confirmation number related to the operating Claire. I had to spent one hour to fit this information to be able to check in.? It was an international flight but it was treated like a domestic flight. We were not even offered the curtesy snake for a domestic flight by unfriendly stewards apparently unhappyted with her job. Apparanty all American carrier staffs has no respect for customers. It is not only s united problem. Curtesy and respects goes both ways. They need to be retrained in public relation."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, service was good, movie/entertainment selection great. Logistics for flight were awesome, there was no long layover."
Cons: "The extra fee for check-in baggage."
Cons: "I had to wait at the gate for 3 hours due to the maintenance of airplane. Delta offered some snacks and beverages but 3 hours? I was so stressed out to wait 3 hours to worry to take a connect flight."

Cons: "Dealing with West Jet to refund a mistake on the ticket purchase."
Pros: "everthing went well"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "They should tell about why they are postponing the flights constantly. Just a flight delayed 4 times and no explanation."
Pros: "This crew was amazing"
Pros: "We eventually made it to our destination, with our luggage!"
Cons: "Better update on delays. Seats are horribly uncomfortable especially for international flights. Food was a joke, dinner was mediocre and breakfast was a cold snack, you can do better. Please consult with airlines that rank in the top ten about how to do things. You already make a huge profit, stop squeezing your customers for more. Maybe you won’t be ranked amongst the worst airlines in the world anymore. Second bad international experience with AA. Never again."
Pros: "Very uncomfortable seating even though paid for preferred. Not enough space for carry on."
Cons: "Crew service"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive."
Cons: "There were no power ports on this flight."
Cons: "American airlines needs to improve their inter hub options"
Cons: "I’m never ever in my life flying with American Airlines Again. I want my money back honestly. I’ve had 4 flights with AA. 2 to get to Columbia and 2 to get back to Washington. 3-4 HAD ISSUES OR WAS WAY LATE. Unexceptional"
Pros: "The boarding process was easy. Crew was friendly. In flight movie selection was great."

Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"
Cons: "No entertainment in the seatback or power for charging personal devices"
Cons: "British Airways moved us to American Airlines. AA canceled the flight like two hours before the flight was scheduled to leave Baltimore to Philly. Never received any information from either British Airways or American Airlines.i was able to ctahc the second leg of the trip by driving to Philly Airport."
Pros: "The crew was probably the only positive thing of the flight."
Cons: "Late boarding because of downsizing plane and overbooking, than sitting on a plane for an additional hour after boarding completed while it was very hot inside. Departed and landed with a delay. Very old airplane with no individual fans above the seats, no outlets to charge devices and no entertainment system."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival"
Pros: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"
Pros: "Nice new aircraft - clean and comfortable. Entertainment selection and system is excellent. SFO airport is clean and efficient"
Cons: "I DO NOT like JFK airport. The signage is poor and it's difficult to figure out where you need to go. There aren't enough monitors and people in the airport are rude (including staff)"
Pros: "The customer service/ticket agent skipped her lunch break to get us on the plane. She went way beyond the call of duty. We will be eternally grateful."
Pros: "Food was edible, flight left early, arrived early in philadelpia, the customer service helped out it my baggage."
Pros: "Almost everything. Only the food was lacking. I like their new planes. The outlet at the seat in coach. The magazine options at the seat as well. I did not look at the entertainment so I will not rate that. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Just the food options. Ginger snaps was what was served for food and a beverage. I suppose this is what obtains on most airlines these days but can't I hope for something more like maybe a sandwich? AA has the opportunity to set themselves apart in this area."
Pros: "Flight was delayed an hour in LAX due to mechanical issues. Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "Flight Delay"
Cons: "It was delayed."
Pros: "Mostly everyrhing"
Cons: "Food was so so"
Cons: "I'm petite 5 ft 2. 120 pounds but felt Not enough leg room too cramped. Otherwise was good on time and good choices of movies and food"
Pros: "Crew and actual flight were great but something was broken on the rear air conditioning unit. It was a full flight and 86F in Dallas and 77F in Columbia. I was seated in rear of the plane very very hot with all the people on the plane. I felt it was difficult to breath once we were on the ground in como. We were at the gate and everyone stood up to get off but the doors remained closed for awhile. It seemed to get even hotter."
Cons: "Crew was great and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Cons: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."
Pros: "Fast service, wonderful crew"
Cons: "Our seats couldn't recline. It was such a long flight and sleep was difficult in a sitting position."
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "On time Attendants friendly Great service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Boarding-we boarded class 9 and had a carry on that was to big so all 3 personnel yelled at me and my husband with my daughter in my arms very loud and disrespectfully " YOU CAN NOT BRING THESE TYPE OF BAGS ON THE PLANE!" Mind you 3 people are saying this while other people were also waiting to board the plane! So I quickly say we do not need 3 people to tell us 1 thing and especially yelling at us like we were kids or criminals because it felt like we must have broke the law the way they treated us! That experience was horrible and ruined my liking for AA"
Cons: "Iberia does not have a check in counter at lax. All flights are operated by American, but ticket issued by Iberia. American could not locate my ticket and as a result I missed my flight. Iberia's 1800 number would not cooperate to release or rebook my ticket until a full day and 3 trips to the airport later when I made a manager speak to an American airline rep to explain and resolve what should be done with my unused ticket. Unbelievably inefficient and rude."
Cons: "Total incompetence. Navigational system broken, two hours on the tarmac, unboarded, then reboarded one at a time, then out to the tarmac and then back to the gate to do FAA paperwork before finally being over 4 hours late. And they don't really care. Very sad."
Pros: "Why would a jet this size wobble all the way across the Atlantic! The pretzels were even stale, and they served a "pizza" that was a stale mini loaf with sauce and a little mozzarella. People were starving when breakfast was served. The thermostat fluctuated from horribly hot to freeing - for 14 hrs. The crew slammed things down on table trays, grumped, were giving harsh orders to patrons rather than gently directing them. These ladies do not enjoy their job. I am done with Delta. We were also an hour late taking off due to a door on a cargo hold not closing. I was embarrassed that our Aussie friends experienced this as their first American flight."
Cons: "Food, attitude of flight attendants, comfort of cabin. Pilot took charge of thermostat issue and kept us informed in a friendly manner regarding the status of our take off and flight progress."
Pros: "Very full flight arrived 20 mins early."
Pros: "Employees were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I think every CEO of a company should be forced to eat their food. It was horrible. A fresh sandwich would be so much better (with add your own may/mustard) The air freshener from the bathroom was so strong that I was nauseous the whole flight. We were at least 8-10 rows away from the restroom. It sprayed about every 20 minutes. My tv screen didn't work. Made it a long flight. No one else around me had that problem"
Pros: "Newer Aircraft had a little more legroom than I have seen in the past. Complimentary entertainment was excellent. It made the time on the ground and in the air go by quickly (even on this short flight)."
Cons: "Time on the ground waiting for takeoff. We spent more time on the ground than in the air. But that is more the congestion at the airport than the airline."
Pros: "The AA staff was very friendly. The flight was late due to weather. I believe I paid more more my seat class which proved a power outlet."
Cons: "I really couldn't rate the food or entertainment because there wasn't any."
Pros: "The crew did the best they could after 3 delays and having to then get off the plane for another hour while a tire was changed."
Cons: "This entire flight was pretty god awful. The plane itself was the old MD-80 which looks and feels like a museum reject."
Pros: "Being able to see movies for free was a real plus since the flight from Australia to Wash.DC is so long."
Cons: "Everything OK."
Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"
