Cons: "There was no entertainment in first class for a cross country flight"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Overall a horrible experience. Would never choose American Airlines given other choices. This was the second time this year I was held at an airport over 24 hrs due to plane maintenance."

Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"

Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"

Pros: "The crew was great, but overworked."
Cons: "Obnoxious people on board were allowed to be obnoxious. It would have been nice for the crew to follow thru with requests,"

Pros: "The crew was fantastic. The food was excellent"
Cons: "seat room space"

Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"

Pros: "Crew was fine, nothing spectacular."
Cons: "Paid extra for exit row on A321 - scam for AA to charge extra for this row, there is no extra leg room"

Pros: "Flight attendants were great."

Pros: "Not a full flight"
Cons: "Not unhappy"

Pros: "The flight was crowded, but what can you expect? Turbulence prevented beverage service. The flight arrived early but had to wait to land."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Delay, the waiting room was very hot, very small place for many gates. Not enough seats for rest until my flight comes"

Cons: "Small, cramped seating"

Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."

Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Upon arriving to the gate we were delayed 15 min. As the last few people were boarding the gate agents announced there was not more overhead space and we would have to check all bags from now on. I’ve seen this done before but I was very irritated because it seemed as if the gate agents were a little rough with the newly checked bags. As I felt like I didn’t have a choice I checked my bag reluctantly knowing I had a gift for a friend inside and continued boarding. As I boarded I was highly irritated to see more than 5 available overhead spaces for carry ons. I asked the steward why they made us check bags when there was still space and she barely stopped to answer and just said they have a monitor up front that tells them when it’s full. Clearly the monitor was wrong and common sense would lead me to at least take a look before LYING to paying customers. I was very hurt to see the gift I had just bought for my friend was broken when I opened my bag at baggage claim."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our honeymoon started off with American airlines delaying us by 3 hours in Miami causing us to miss our flight to Iceland and now we are stuck in Dallas paying out of pocket for everything because American does not reimburse anything. Just brutal."

Pros: "Ease of entry."
Cons: "Personal space is very, very limited and food is terrible for an international flight."

Pros: "Son flew alone and everyone was very helpful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"

Cons: "flight was delayed by about 4 hrs, however that worked to my advantage bcos of the inordinate delay in Immigration clearance in Miami."

Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."

Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."

Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."

Cons: "The plane was very old."

Pros: "it was fine. flight left on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "that you have to pay $100+ for economy plus to get the legroom you used to get for a regular ticket."

Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"

Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"

Cons: "Extremely old plane"

Pros: "Fairly regular updates from Captain, approx every 15-30 minutes. Flight attendants were ok, performed duties as expected. Announcements were difficult to hear over sound system. I don't know if Captain and the flight attendants were soft-spoken, or if the volume was not turned high enough, but I could hear less than have of what was said over the audio system."
Cons: "On the plane for approx six hours. Sat for two hours at the gate, then another hour on the tarmac. Would have been more bearable, but AA's seats are sooooooo close together, that there is nowhere near enough room to stretch legs when weather causes delays. AA's seats are the most uncomfortable (in regard to space and lumbar support) of the three major airlines."

Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"

Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"

Pros: "It was a good flight back to DC."

Pros: "we have a very old plane from rome to chicago no entertainent"
Cons: "it was a 10 hours fly in a old plane without any charger for computers and tablets,no individual tvs"

Cons: "Service was terrible. Uncomfortable and good was not at all tasty"

Pros: "Smooth"

Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."

Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time"
Cons: "Seat very uncomfortable. American doesn't let you standby for earlier flight- charges 75 dollars Gate agent wasn't helpful-pointed in general direction of kiosk to pay the 75 dollars Flight attendants passed up our entire row for drinks"

Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor for a 9 hours flight."

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "For price paid, service and treatment not comensurate expense. Boarding system seems arbitrary to seat booked. Had window seat but middle and aisle seat boarded first...doesn't make sense."

Pros: "It got me where I needed to be safely."
Cons: "The most uncomfortable flight ever. Cramps in legs and seat would go back a bit so I could get somewhat comfortable."

Pros: "I really like the extra leg space compared to the previous flight on AA to Paris. The food was good. The attendants were very pleasant and professional. The boarding process was speedy."
Cons: "Not coming back for beverage refills. It really irritated me that the person in front of me kept her seat pushed back when we were getting ready to land. She only put it in upright position when told to do so, but when the attendant past by, she promptly pushed it back again."

Pros: "Baggage handling is very slow. Speed it up with baggage manager changes."
Cons: "Baggage handling is very skow."

Pros: "As usual the plane was clean and everybody involved with American was very friendly."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I did not like I wish they gave you peanuts instead of pretzels or chips"

Cons: "Company blamed weather for flight cancelation and did not pay hotel and meals. Onboarding crew were very rude and not helpful, Food provided in the flight is very bad."

Pros: "I landed"
Cons: "Flight was changed which left me with five minutes to get off one plane and onto another. I got to my first gate early and attempted to ask the person there about the timing. She walked away without looking at. On her way down the hall says it will be open in an hour. An hour later I go to the gate. A woman is there and finishing up with another customer. When it was my turn, she said she was closed, yet she helped the joy behind me for over an hour. I know this because I got In the generic questions line and stood there for an hour watching the woman who was "closed" help this guy. When I was FINALLY able to talk to someone, the only thing he told me was to walk fast. That was well worth the 2 hour wait. I will never fly with American again."

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "n/a"

Cons: "Flight delayed for two hours and then eventually cancelled!"

Cons: "Extra rules about headphones are annoying and no beverage options. Horrible terminal that does not let you get a drink before boarding and gate agent did not update boarding when it was late, so no one could venture off and get a drink of water before flight."

Cons: "Late. Wifi on the aircraft but didn’t work. Inflation GHY service suspended due to reported turbulence."

Pros: "The seat beside me was vacant, so I had extra room."
Cons: "Flights in the late evening from Toronto to Ottawa always seem to be delayed. We spent a lot of time boarding, and a lot of time de-icing before take off. There would have been plenty of time to serve refreshments during de-icing. But refreshments and dismemberment of ear phones only began once the plane was airborne. There was not enough time to service all the passengers at that point. I'm not sure why Air Canada cannot at least give you ear phones when boarding. And why cannot refreshments be served during de-icing?"

Pros: "The fact that the in-flight meal was as cold as the crew, and you got to pay for that coldness. Just love it! You get me right?"
Cons: "The Montreal-Vancouver route was by far the worst. The attitude of the crew was denigrating and arrogant."

Cons: "Had to spend the night in Toronto for flight delay"

Cons: "N/c"

Cons: "They lost our checked baggage. Luckily we did get them back within 20 hours."

Cons: "Actually I flew from Buenos Aires to Vancouver on Air Canada. I had paid to prebook my seats both on the B.A.-Torononto leg and also Toronto to Vancouver. Did not get either of the seats I had paid and prebooked. Therefore Air Canada is taking money but not providing the service or product...... technically this is stealing"

Pros: "good overall...so MUCH BETTER THAN Air Canada rouge service we took from Ottawa to Venice. Rouge service is very poor!!"

Pros: "The pilot and the crew are very proffesional."

Pros: "Everything on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Cleanliness, crew (in general)."
Cons: "Problems with entertainment system sound seem to be a recurring problem aboard aircrafts - the jacks seem to be in bad shape in most, whether for the provided eraphones or those brought on board."

Cons: "AC was helpful arranging a delivery of the delayed luggage. But carrier was further delayed from the scheduled delivery time."

Pros: "Airbus 380"

Pros: "Breakfast and lunch filling and tasty with good options. Attendants came around often."
Cons: "Multiple glitches in flight- Some entertainment systems did not work, so the pilot had to do a reboot of whole system for 20 minutes. One overhead compartment would not close, had to divert bags somewhere else. Planes need a major upgrade to entertainment equipment. view screens are 20 years old, the touch screens don't work on the first try because its such old underpowered tech. Safety demonstration props missing."

Pros: "We had lots of leg room unlike the Air Canada Rouge flight that we took from Toronto ON to Kelowna BC. Also very little table on the rouge flight."

Pros: "Service was poor. Attitude was less than enthusiastic."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cancelling flights , lying about reasons why, running away from customers when the flight finally after 10 hours was canceled"

Cons: "The staff was really nice. However I was asked to switch seats and a flight attendant spilled water over me. They were very thankful that moved and very apologetic about the water so I feel bad for bashing them, I just think I should have gotten a free snack or something. The rest of the flight was alright."

Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."

Pros: "Entertainment system did not work"
Cons: "Crew provided a card to contact air Canada for compensation"

Pros: "Leg room adequite."
Cons: "Only beverages served, there wasn't the usual snack."

Pros: "Seat availability (lots of empty seats) Entertainment system had lots of movies & music Friendly flight attendants"
Cons: "Flight attendants could be more aware of his/her surroundings. For example, I was either stepped on (as a result, being woken up) or my backpack was stepped on several times when an attendant was walking down the aisle, and neither of those things were sticking out into the aisle. This has rarely happened to me on trans-Pacific flights (more crowded, longer flights) so I can only attribute it to the carelessness of the attendants and/or the aisle width but since I think aisle width follows international standards it's more likely the former."

Pros: "Not refunds, no voucher, no credits .... But still s stupid fee of U.S 200 to pay on my Next flight using same booking Code . RIDICULOUS !! Guess other airlines want my business and my friends' too.."

Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "My "window" seat was beside a wall. So i actually didn't even have a wi dow seat, not really."

Pros: "They were able to put me on standby for the next flight and I made it on. I would have been upset if had to wait for the last flight at 10:55pm. I understand this is not always in the airports control."
Cons: "My flight from Montreal to Ottawa was canceled and I almost had a panic attack. I was flying alone for the first time."

Cons: "Movies and audio lacked currency, simply old and little variety."

Cons: "No good movies or music"

Pros: "I arrived early and was able to change my flight to an earlier one."
Cons: "The air hostess/stewardess was surly...and looked like she hadn't slept.."

Pros: "Leg room was great."
Cons: "The pilot wasn't that good. It wasn't a smooth landing at all."

Pros: "There is nothing I liked about air Canada"
Cons: "Everything sucks"

Pros: "We left and arrived early, the seat was surprisingly comfortable (it helped that there were lots of empty seats, including next to me), my full-size carry-on fit easily in the overhead bin, despite it being a small plane, the in-flight entertainment was always on and pretty good... everything went well."
Cons: "Only the things I've grown to expect on any domestic service (e.g., no food)."

Pros: "Great service on a quick flight"

Cons: "There was no access to movies."

Pros: "I like the comfort of the seats and how fast the boarding and take off was."
Cons: "I did not like that I was not offered peanuts during my flight. The last time they offered free peanuts"

Pros: "as above"
Cons: "nothing"

Pros: "Space and meals"
Cons: "Entainment"

Pros: "The fact that I was rebooked immediately to my new flight AC-DC 705 at 8:50 am by two wonderful ladies at La guardia airport who comforted then boarded me unto a flight due to the fact that I missed my original flight. This occured due to the Airport being Unorganized! As I had checked in well before 3 hours and was on time for my original flight at 8:30 am."
Cons: "The airport was extremely packed, Unorganized and not well staffed. What I hated is that when I arrived at my original gate A7 the gentleman who boarded my original flight was unprofessional, rude, basically ignored me and said "You missed your flight !" Not even taking the time to listen to my situation or guide me in my next steps of acquiring a new flight to go to my classes and home in Toronto!"

Pros: "Comfortable and large plane with tvs"

Pros: "Everything but the size of the in-flight seats"
Cons: "Seats way too small and uncomfortable."

Pros: "On the plus side, the service was great."
Cons: "There is just not enough space in the seats! I am not a tiny person and my trip was not helped by the fact that the seats are too narrow to comfortably seat people larger than a size 10!"

Pros: "The plane was fairly modern and the seating had more leg room than many other economy flights I have taken. The flight attendants were friendly and courteous. All-in-all a very good flight. I was especially appreciative of the concessions made for skiers when it came to luggage. Also, the luggage fees were very reasonable."
Cons: "I was a bit surprised that no snacks were offered free of charge. I can understand that meals are not included in economy, but nuts, cookies or some pretzels would be nice."

Pros: "AC changed to a different plane for our flight at the last minute, so seat assignments were messed up, and we had paid extra to choose seats. So why pay extra for seating when the airline can put you wherever they want at their discretion. In addition there was a minor delay in take off while the flight deck crew had to re-programmed the avionics to our scheduled route. But we made up the time en route and were only a few minutes late. On the whole, not a bad flight experience, just the usual frustration in the process. I long for the days when flying was a pure pleasure."

Pros: "Hourly flights in a Boing 676. Comfy economy class seats with leather headrest (cleaner than fabric). Ample overhead space for carry ons. Individual TV monitors with entertainment (I prefer leaving it on flight itinerary status while reading a book). Good bretzels & tomato juice served by a multilingual flight staff. Boarding, departure & arrival on time to the second. Can't ask for more."

Pros: "Flight attendant very caring and friendly."
Cons: "Gate attendant very rude - made my daughter cry Her seat was way at the back. Baggage handlers lost a luggage strap - sturdy one 7 boarding pass The gate was changed to one at the end farthest from original gate It was supposed to be two flights - she ended up with 7 boarding passes in the end. Second really unpleasant flight with Air Canada in less than a year. Will avoid Air Canada from here on."

Cons: "Salty pretzels!"

Pros: "flight was on time"
Cons: "not even a little snack served with the drinks and the amount of legroom was minimal and I'm not tall"

Pros: "The crew actually enforced the zones when boarding, which often isn't the case and tends to slow things down."
Cons: "This connecting flight was worse, as we sat on the tarmac for well over an hour and were not provided with so much as a single beverage the entire time we were waiting or flying. Apart from the great in-flight entertainment system, the whole experience was brutal."

Cons: "Ticketed for Air Canada, but it was a code share flight with United Airlines. The check in at United took over 15 minutes because my reservation was not recognized by the United online system. Luckily a United agent was able to work through my paperwork and get me checked in, with luggage, via Ottawa to London, Heathrow. However, at the boarding gate for my flight to Ottawa, my boarding pass was deemed invalid and it took another 15 minutes to issue a new boarding pass - with seating at the back of the bus. Was a frustrating/annoying process. Luckily I encountered two capable United employees who worked to resolve the issues."

Pros: "The staff were efficient and friendly. The entertainment system is great."
Cons: "More room - but the flight was short and the price was right, so that's not a deal breaker."
