Pros: "EVERYTHING about this flight was a NIGHTMARE. From the delays, to the agents, to the crew - absolutely terrible. Will never fly American again. They claim the flights are full but have a TON of empty seats and don't let you pay for upgrades."
Pros: "The seating, the comfort, the entertainment, the complimentary food, the drinks. Everything was great with American Airlines."
Cons: "Our flight from Dublin was delayed 2-1/2 hours. So we missed our connecting flight to SJC. Instead of flying back at 5:15 PM we flew back at 8:13 PM. But that flight didn’t leave until 9:00 PM. They rerouted us to fly into SFO which is about 1-1/2 hours further than SJC from our house. Not good!"
Cons: "The flight attendants were the best"
Pros: "All crew very friendly & helpful. Went out of their way to help elderly gentleman traveling alone"
Pros: "On time, arrived early"
Pros: "Smooth flight, good food"
Pros: "Seats were reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "My console did not work for the entire flight, including the overhead light and hellp/call button. The screen in front of my seat displayed error messages for the entire flight of 8 hours, from the time I got into my seat until after landing. I asked the crew about it before take off. Nothing they did fixed it, not could the screen be turned off completely to avoid scrolling messages for 8+hours. During the flight I was told it couldn't be fixed until after landing. In that case why wasn't it taken care of before my flight ever started? Anyone inspecting the plane properly in between the previous flight and mine would have and should have seen the same error messages on the screen I saw, and resolved it then. ''Hot'' food in the main meal was salty and lukewarm. Also irritating that flights for 3 people booked 5 months ahead of take off with no option for us to choose seats should end up with 3 separate seats at opposite ends of the plane. Should automatically assign seats together for people booking that far out, on a first come first serve basis or allow seat assignment at time of booking by the customer. This flight was about the typical experience most passengers have come to expect from companies who have too much power and really don't care about the customers they are supposed to serve. This is not a reflection of the actual crew on the flight itself, they were average, not bad, but not great."
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, the crew was really nice (and it didn't hurt that they were generous with the wine)."
Pros: "Loved all the meals. Tasty, well-coordinated."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant, meal was tasty."
Cons: "Seated next to a man who should have booked 2 seats."
Pros: "Movies and did not feel squished. Never had so much food service on a flight before."
Cons: "Nothing negative to say."
Pros: "On time, efficient, new plane. No troubles."
Pros: "Seats were relatively comfy. Things were on-time."
Cons: "Vegetarian and vegan food options were virtually non-existent.iwas so hungry during this 7-hr flight. There was no seat-back entertainment."
Cons: "When I purchased my tickets, American decided it would be reasonable to separate my husband, our 1 year old daughter, and myself which I was notified of only when I asked the customer service agent over the phone prior to our flight. She explained that she was unable to do anything about it. I then called American during my trip and spoke with another agent who said it was out of her hands as well and to take it up with an agent at the desk at the airport. When I checked in online, I was able to change our seats myself which was nothing that either agent even suggested. The lack of ability of these agents on the phone to help two parents traveling internationally with a toddler was unbelievable. American has terrible customer service."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Poor service and food quality for having paid for business class. Cabin crew more focused on their own convenience than the customers."
Pros: "Lots of movies. Constant trash collection and drink service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Dirty bathrooms."
Pros: "Food was good as were the movies & seat"
Cons: "Gate supervisor (male) in Dublin was unhelpful. He announced theee times that the US Customes pre-clearance would close shortly. This announcement was in the gate area where everyone had already had to have cleared the Preclearance US Customs. Then when he announced boarding for priority and Business class he "pointedly" told the zones 1 thru 4 to all begin boarding at once (w/ one agent while three agents stood behind chatting) and to only use the one Priority lane. Thirty people all gathered for the very slow process. The Gate Supervisor the says he would start boarding Zones 5 and 6 in the other lane. Zones 5 & 6 all boarded while I (zone 1 passenger) and five others were still in que boarding thru the priority lane. Poor leadership. The Business Class flight attendant while serving snack, spilled my hot tea on my shirt, trousers and iPad. She was very apologetic and said that she wished she had not filled the cup so full. The tea "happens" and was no big deal. The Gate agent on the microphone in Dublin was having a bad morning and transferred his unhappyness to me, which I did not bargain for on the 27th."
Pros: "Nothing it did not exist"
Cons: "You cancelled my flight without telling me"
Pros: "Fast and early"
Cons: "Tv screens kept freezing"
Cons: "At least one of the entertainment systems wasn't working right. Otherwise everything was okay."
Cons: "Miserable food. Just horrible quality. Truly - and I'm not picky."
Cons: "Missed first connecting flight because American Airlines wouldn't allow me to check in online due to having a toddler in my party. Had to pay for next day transfer. $240 a person. Will never use American Airlines again!"
Cons: "The staff, specifically Stephen, need to focus when serving who he served and where he left off! 5 passengers were not served at all until they came around for trash which we did not have! Then were told there were not any full meals left! If you booked that many tickets the amount of meals should match!"
Pros: "Everything! Leg room"
Cons: "The touch screen for entertainment was maddening!"
Cons: "Prefer ANA to JetStar!"
Pros: "I liked that a pilot of the flight was a woman."
Cons: "First, the gate staff in Dublin called my name to assure my bag was arriving to JFK. They assured it is! Guess what! The bag never arrived and was stock in London!"
Pros: "Nice crew. Chairs were comfortable."
Cons: "Not enough movies! No individual screens. Plans had dirt stuck all along the air vents"
Cons: "Lousy food. Cramped seats, try to make you pay extra for seats to sit together,"
Pros: "Good food-ample space"
Cons: "Tv didnt work for 3+ hours took 4 attendants to restart it."
Pros: "My wife and liked the food selection during both flights. We also liked how one of five flight attendants actually seemed to enjoy their job. And also how that one flight attendant made sure we were taken care of."
Cons: "Initially upon arriving in phili, my wife and I boarded the plane and I walked on the plane first than immediately my wife was asked by a flight attendant if she was supposed to be on the flight without any explanation at all, it was weird and disheartening. Also other than one flight attendant actually seemed to enjoy what they were doing, and I am a big customer service man, and some of the attendants didn't seem to care AT ALL at many points, very disappointed. Also he plane that we took out of the United States to go to Ireland was very small, and the plane to return us to the states was very small as well. The flight from our connection in phili to go to Charlotte was the biggest plane we had, just for a two hour ride.. really disaipointsd with American Airlines."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No gluten free food available"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "No leg room, tight."
Cons: "The flight crew was very rude"
Pros: "Individual TV. Price."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Flight attendants were equally bad. Only one attendant was helpful and accommodating. They act like they don't like being there. Need to take lessons from Emirites Airlines. Or Swiss Air. Or even Ethiopian Airlines. Just smile. Be genuinely nice. This bunch were grumpy, conceded, and unfriendy."
Pros: "Getting there safe and sound"
Cons: "We didn't fly FinAir, it was American Airlines"
Pros: "The movie selection and how often we were given beverages."
Cons: "I was selected for a random inspection. I was pulled aside and went through a separate check in process. I completed everything I was instructed to do and as I'm boarding, I'm pulled aside and told I needed to go back to pre clearance because someone forgot to punch a hole in my boarding pass. The stewardess and j had to run all the way back to security so I could go through the whole process again. I delayed the flight and everyone was upset. It was completely unnecessary. Simply because one employee didn't do their job, I delayed a transatlantic flight to Chicago. Best part, I arrived at the airport four hours before my flight. Also, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. And I was separated from my traveling companion for this entire process. Had I missed the flight, she would never have known."
Cons: "The touch-screen entertainment system was not very responsive. It was difficult to get the screen to recognize your selection."
Pros: "Individual screens worked well, food was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants with carts bumped my boyfriend's shoulder repeatedly, nearly every time they went by, without ever apologizing. They were also really rude when we asked for additional beverages. I travel very frequently, and I was shockedz"
Pros: "Available drinks"
Cons: "Poor selection and no coffee"
Cons: "No entertainment systems Chairs were old and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "The meal was terrible. They ran out of chicken and the second option was awful."
Pros: "The food was good and the flight was short."
Cons: "It would be nice to have more room"
Pros: "The captain and the flight attendants were very communicative and kept in touch with the cabin at regular intervals but not intrusive."
Cons: "There were 2 meal choices., one was chicken and one vegetarian curry/rice dish. Clearly the chicken would be the most sought after meal and the flight attendant even suggested the possibility that everyone would not get their first choice, and ofcourse they didn't. We had a group of 10 traveling and by the time some of,our group was served the chicken was gone. Our daughter was 7 months pregnant and was one who didn't get a chicken meal. I don't understand why the airline would not provide an adequate amount of meals that would apply to the masses. Only a few vegetarian to fill in for specific diets would be expected. We all felt this was poor planning on the part of the airline catering company.."
Pros: "Upon sitting down, I was able to fall asleep almost instantly. The helpful stewardesses were constantly aware of my needs."
Cons: "Check-in desk seemed confused and unorganized. Two very friendly ladies were helping out but were on different wavelengths."
Pros: "The food was very good! Chicken and mashed potatoes with broccoli was very tasty! A very small salad, a seeded bun, cheese and crackers and apple crumble rounded out the meal. Later pretzels and the grilled cheese and blueberry pastry. Pillow and blanket nice."
Cons: "Movies hard to hear with provided ear buds. I tried three and gave up."
Cons: "EXTREMELY LONG CHECK IN & SECURITY LINES"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and customer service oriented! They were very organized and always helpful!"
Cons: "Some of the screens on the chairs need to be looked at. It was extremely difficult scrolling thru the options because very often our screens would get frozen or land on an option that we did not select."
