Cons: "Never heard the announcement for boarding resulting in me missing my flight. If it were just me I’d say all my fault but there were 12 people that did not hear the announcements."
Cons: "The gate in Dallas changed three times, which caused me to walk all over the airport. Then the flight was delayed 3 hours with little communication"

Pros: "Jesus, the flight was phenomenal! He lightened up the atmosphere with his wit and grace."
Cons: "Did not know that we did not fly with British Airlines (as I had printed out before my first flight to Germany) was replaced with American Airlines. I lost valuable time at the airport and almost missed the flight. Chaotic and unexpected baggage problems before boarding to Dallas: the board luggage, same as we had on the way over, was not accepted and had to be checked in. Problem since we had to move laptop, etc. before the actual boarding. Attendants not as professional as they should be. Also seats were changed -- I was not able to sit with my daughter who regularly gets travel sickness. Overall not a good experience. But the worst: changing airlines and not being informed!!!!"
Pros: "Nothing special. Crew was fine."
Cons: "Just a couple of cookie/crackers to eat. No entertainment."
Pros: "Boarding process was fast and organizedfor the most part(people for lines before they are called)"
Cons: "No food or entertainment, but I do understand given the duration of the flight!"
Pros: "Only one screaming kid. I was allowed to move to another seat"
Cons: "Food was good. Crew nice"
Pros: "Surprisingly enough leg room for me, even though im 6 foot 6in. Staff on plane were very very nice."
Cons: "In lax The women checking your ticket before you go upstairs to security was super rude. Theres one tiny bathroom in the entire AA terminal."
Pros: "Convenient flight from DRO to Dallas."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful, professional and friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, not in good shape; seat pocket broken, are rest controller did’t fit into arm rest properly, panel in bathroom held in place (kind of) with duct tape, no individual screen for movies."
Pros: "The flight overall very good and smooth"
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the oberhead compartments."
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: "Food was good. Staff was polite."
Cons: "Both flights were late leaving. Plus then we waited on board for a long time. Once on board and waiting, no explanation, no updates. No idea what was going on or why. An announcement would have helped a lot. Philky-Prg: Long delays with food , staff was slow on the Philly -Prg flight. Seemed like they didn't want to be there. No info from flight crew. Phily to Prg - Crappy old plane that should not be flying over seas anymore. Applies to both flights unless specified."
Pros: "An elderly lady sitting next to me with a broken arm.....was approached by the flight attendant and the flight attendant was so considerate that she took the lady to the empty seat in first class!!! I noticed this kind gesture and noted it to the flight attendant. She told me sometimes folks get upset asking why they did not get the upgrade! It amazes me....I always think if that were my mother how would I want to be treated!!! CUDOS to this Flight attendant....Thank you AA for making this gesture and God Bless you all!"
Cons: "Surprise....American Airlines no longer food nor one bag free! Well if you can stomach the not even a snack nor one bag...then Fly AA so not so bad after all. But Gate agents, baggage handlers, pilots and flight attendants take away any negatives whatsoever! Great work AA."
Pros: "The staff tried all they could to move things along"
Cons: "The congestion at the gate, and the staff’s frustration dealing with the people who weren’t listening caused some of the problems. This plane took about twice as long as it should have to get everyone into their seats. I don’t know why. Maybe it was a lot of people who’ve never flown before. The rollaboard bags always are a problem. There was plenty of room in the overheads."
Pros: "Long flight, but I really like the 787. Comfortable travel."
Cons: "American airlines mishandled my luggage. Extremely poor communication about status. (I don't know how much all my phone calls to them will end up costing!) Two and a half days later, I have to return to the airport to pick it up. If you travel with AA, pack MORE than essentials in your carry-on! Also it is criminal that they charge extra for aisle seats!"
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Cons: "The crew was rude."
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and they next flight left 5min early?! WTF! We missed the flight by 3min. 10 other people missed the flight too. Now our whole day is blown waiting nearly 6hrs for next flight."
Cons: "Left s half hour late because they had to shift cargo, then we taxied on the runway for what seemed like a half hour. My wife and I purchased our tickets in July but could never pick our seats and ended up 9 rows apart."
Cons: "BA redirected online check in to AA and seats were available early, not 24 hrs before flight, what is different seat policy from BA. I didn't know that and I was late to find 2 seats besides for me and my family member."
Pros: "There were a lot of movie choices; the flight attendants were amazing!"
Cons: "We were late leaving so I missed my connecting flight"
Pros: "the check in went very well and the crew seemed efficient."
Cons: "the food was not good. it was not hot. the sound system was not good. the plane's screens were too far away. the earphones were a joke and did not fit well in the ear....plus no crew member came around offering them-I had to ask for them."
Cons: "Plane for a transatlantic flight only had the tv screens in the aisles with a single option. Antiquated plane"
Pros: "I actually got to sit by my sweetie. Perfection."
Pros: "During the time we were wkaiting for final decision on the flight delay I did not like any activity from crew and AA's emplyees."
Cons: "I understand some delays can occur due to tecnical problems and most of the times they are out of control but negative issues related to communications they are controllable and they must be reviewed and implemente properly."
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."
Pros: "This flight left about 90 minutes late again due to weather issues. The crew was excellent which made this long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "The Check In Agents were so kind and helpful especially when they found out we were having a rough time with a family situation.....So blessed to have those two ladies working for such a magnificent airlines"
Cons: "you have become like the rest of the wolf pack......charges on everything! Try become like Pan Am of days of old!"
Cons: "We were inside a plane for almost 3 hours due to unavable pilot. They got us out and then back in again, all in all we wasted six hours until the flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Flights lately have been a huge disappointment but American Airlines was great! Crew was so pleasant and helpful,food was good and the "entertainment" was too! I'll definitely fly with them again!"
Pros: "The boarding has become much clearer and efficient since the new system is deployed (instead of calling each level, you just see the boarding group no.)"
Cons: "The seat is cramped to its maximum. Leg room is no longer a thing. Entertainment system is lacking... sigh..."
Pros: "The inflight crew was outstanding!"
Pros: "Loved the comfort of the plane. There was generous seat space especially when reclined in the main cabin. Personal entertainment screens with abundance of options to choose. Flight crew was very pleasant and helpful. T"

Pros: "Slick boarding"
Cons: "No movies on way out."
Pros: "The pilot and crew were considerate that it was very early on a Sunday and so they kept interruptions to a minimum."
Cons: "The legroom seemed particularly tight on this flight. Not sure why. I fly a lot. Maybe this plane was diffferent - or I was particularly interested in napping and it was hard?"
Pros: "They didn't delay our flight so that was good. My boyfriend's name also didn't show up on the reservation at the kiosk. One of the employees was happy to help and found him on the reservation."
Pros: "Crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Seats are toght. Just an inch more would have made a long flight much better."
Cons: "Carry On : crew did not help me find a spot for my carrying on. An older man actually found me a spot It was on this leg ( not the La Guardia to Chatlotte ) that the food tray kept opening after trying to close them ( old latches ) US airlines flight attendants don't understand how to talk to travellers . Asian airlines have excellent flight attendants"
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and tired! No energy. Plane was hot no AC when we boarded."
