Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"
Pros: "Calm no crowd organized and perfect"
Cons: "My transfer was supposed to be from JFK, but when I arrived a staff told me to take a taxi and go to LaGardia airport. Nobody apologized neither explained why I had to go there. Instead from leaving New York at 5.25 pm the flight was delayed to 8.30 pm. Horrible flight with angry employees"
Cons: "They left my bags behind and told me they weren’t even checked in Worst customer service ever"
Cons: "The seats were small and I’m 5’3"
Pros: "Why do I get asked 3x times if I am ready able to assist with a verbal yes. I get asked at baggage check in, again when I board by gate agent, and then again by flight crew. Is this FAA regulations to ask 3 Times?"
Cons: "Ask me 1 time"
Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."
Pros: "Fast check in"
Cons: "Unfriendly airhostesses, I asked fir a blanket as it was freezing but refused to bring me one"
Pros: "The pilot and co-pilot took the time to answer my question about turbulence. They were very friendly. I appreciated that."
Cons: "There is insufficient legroom in coach, especially when the passenger in front of me reclines."

Pros: "AA people are better to talk to and are trying to locate bags but still not successful"
Cons: "Whole experience is nerve racking"
Cons: "Lost money traveling and moving offered to snake up for it."
Cons: "I am STILL in Chicago :("
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage and it did not arrive in Boston"
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: "On time, no problems, free food"
Cons: "3 & 3 configuration"
Pros: "Viaje de regreso a Panamá estuvo mucho más confortable"
Cons: "El avión de ida a Miami, muy básico."

Cons: "There was no individual entertainment on board (TV’s, internet, etc)"

Crew did not assist people who needed to make connecting flights by keeping other passengers from blocking the aisle after landing.. Airline did not seem to care about all the chaos caused by being so late."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"
Pros: "The fly departed on time"
Pros: "Cookie hehehh"
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Their service is useless. Processes are in need of a major overhaul. They have become too big for themselves and have not adopted the customer-centric value that prevailing companies have incorporated and are implementing. I predict that they will not be around in the next 10 years if changes are not made."
Cons: "Kayak should be more particular who they partner up with as being more selective will bring more value to your brand."

Pros: "I have had the most uncomfortable seat ever. It felt like there was a huge ball under my seat."
Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."
