Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Except for Ginette , the rest of the crew weren’t courteous or polite. Couldn’t wait for you to complete your meal to clear up."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient and on time."
Cons: "The temperature was so hot at one point I was getting sick to my stomach. Twenty minutes later I was putting on a jacket."
Cons: "Sat on runway when we landed took forever to get to gate. Late on a non stop w good weather"
Cons: "The flight boarded twenty minutes late despite the plane being at the gate early scheduled departure. Baggage took another forty minutes to load. Then they decided there we were overweight (data that should be known before the cargo was loaded) and off loaded two people. Then after another delay they realised that off loading people meant off loading their baggagge, total delay nearly 2 hours The hedset socket on the entertainment system did not work The USB port did not work THey ran out of food after serving three rows, loaded four sandwiches, no wraps and 2 cheese plates for a full evening flight that was over 5 hours in duration including the delays."
Pros: "That the flight attendant was really helpful"
Cons: "If the flight would have been on time"
Cons: "Plane left an hour late - due to not enough water! American always has some excuse. On an overnight flight where people like to sleep, the pilot shouldn't be making an announcement one and 1/2 hours before landing, waking everyone up! Movie selection is very old."

Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "On Time. Delayed advice 3 times."
Pros: "Seat 5A was great"
Pros: "The connecting BA flight from Houston to LHR was an old 747 and my broken window blind didn’t go down. The worst part was I paid for a bulkhead seat and once we got on the plane it turned out the configuration was different and the seat was not bulkhead."
Cons: "Accurate configuration. A more modern plane."
Pros: "Wide choice of films on the flight, boarding was hassle free."

Pros: "19 minute flight wheels up to wheels down!"
Cons: "There was a 1.5 hour weather delay."
Pros: "The seat was cormfortable and the entertainment was dope!"

Pros: "People on the planes were nice"
Cons: "The guy at the gate in france made me check my bag, he said it was due to the size but people were walking by with bigger bags and he didn't seem to care about them at all. Not sure why he singled me out. Also took my passport, which he wasn't doing for other passengers and told me to board the plane. I had to ask multiple times for him to return my passport. Not sure if it was his first day or something but it was a very frustrating experience."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Cons: "1. The music played while boarding and deboarding was not relaxing. It made me anxious and irritable. 2. The food was absolutely poor. Taste, etc 3. Poor selection of movies, etc.. 4. Poor selection of music, especially the classical channel. Won't be flying American again if I can help it."
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "First flight TUS to DFW was delayed by 3 hours causeing us to mist all the remaining flights. Had to scramble to find other flights DFW to LHR and LHR to DUB. We arrived at our destination 10 hours. No reason for the delay was given. Lousey service on AA."

Cons: "Delayed flight. I was informed of the three-timed delays. Eventually, the flight met the 2nd one."

Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "Legroom was great!"
Pros: "Friendly staff great pilots we got up and down safely...."
Cons: "No time to grab lunch all I had was pretzels do you"
Pros: "I got there on time and they didn't lose my luggage."
Cons: "The planes are too cramped, costs are too high, staff just love pointing out a carry on isn't a carry on even though it's sold as one and fits in every other airline's definition of one. Boarding process is ridiculous."

Cons: "On the top of that my luggage was damaged"
Pros: "Video was good, seats were good."
Cons: "Man doing the check-in in Madrid (site 909) was very rude and unhelpful."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "They lie to you when they tell you that your luggage in included and you end paying $250 more. Now they only give you one meal in 9 hours and the prices keep going up. Find another company and another flight searcher."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and professional. They sat me in the last roll on the left with 2 seats. I could not recline the seat and I had to travel sitting up right all the way from Spain to Brazil. Horrible!"
Cons: "They should have offered the empty seats to the passenger as soon the plane closed to take off."
Cons: "If my plane wasn’t overbooked and I actually got on it. Instead I missed my connection in Barcelona and had to buy a new ticket from Barcelona to the US."

Cons: "Temperature was very hot and embarking procedure took a while to be completed"
Pros: "Departed on time, nice entertainment"
Cons: "Food could have been better, for such a long trip beverages service was scarce"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, as was to be expected for Business Class service."
Cons: "Out of a total of only seven (7) Business Class passengers on the flight from Venice to Madrid, for some reason they only had five (5) meals available, so we were offered a selection from the standard economy class snack list, which was substandard and very disappointing considering we paid for Business Class and therefore expected a Business Class meal and not just a snack! Very poorly planned and completely unacceptable!"
Cons: "The seats was no to comfortable for the price . They charge for the luggage and any company for traveling internationally does for almost one luggage"

Cons: "seat 53d has sound it the screen broken personal spot light also out of order everything is old"
Cons: "The boarding is very bad, you can not board 400 people in 15 minutes, the result will be, you will arrive one hour late! Also, Why the crew wear gloves when pick up left overs but not when serving the food? Really the crew training, it is very poor to sat the least. Arlindo."

Pros: "Nice Flight, and Service"
Cons: "Food can be better and the AC was not so cold."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely."
Cons: "My plane took off 45 minutes late and no one told the passengers (in English at least) why we were leaving so late (and I still don't know). After about 20 minutes of waiting for takeoff, I pressed the button to ask a flight attendant why we were leaving so late but no one would come up to me, so I had to flag a flight attendant down when she walked by and she only stayed long enough for me to ask her when we were leaving. I also wanted to buy a snack on the plane and the same flight attendant who had answered my question before snapped at me about using a credit card when I accidentally gave her my debit card. Normally, I'm not one to complain about these types of things and this situation definitely could have been much worse, but I think it's important that any delays are communicated to passengers."

Cons: "Sat sweltering on tarmac with doors open. All passengers sweating"
Pros: "The comfort and crew attentions"

Cons: "The boarding was slow and it was hot in this flight."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and one started bording it when ok."
Cons: "It was delayed, as normally, 45 mins this time. Awful experience going through security in CDG I would avoid that airport at all cost. Randomly making you wait luggage before security, with add extra 30 mins to the security processes, not sympathy of staff even if flight people may miss their flight."
Cons: "I had the worst experience I have ever had. Very unhappy, please contact me directly."
Cons: "The delay"

Cons: "There was only one person initially checking people in. Then when there was a second person, she was going to make us move to the end of the other line after waiting 30 minutes. She did end up taking us, but it was only after conceding that."
Pros: "Great price to value ratio, attentive crew, good food. Wifi available."

Cons: "The seats didn't have a port to charge phones. Older planes with antiquated tech. Monitors on back of seats were also outdated. Plane was late leaving Madrid."
