I sat in row 38 seat D. The headphone jack was nearly broken. The charging port was completely broken. My under seat space was compromised by a little metal box not seen under all seats so there was less room for my bag (which ended up having to go under the empty middle seat). These things could have been better. One of the flight attendants walked by me while my eyes were closed but I was awake waiting for breakfast and didn’t try to wake me for meal- and then when I asked about it didn’t offer to give me a pack I loved the other flight attendant - he was very kind funny witty and made extra efforts my comfort Overall everyone was polite, flight was smooth Off boarding was a ridiculously long process and should have been avoided if possible
Cons: "Not making me sit on tarmac pretending you already don’t know the flight is canceled. Enough of the dog and pony shows."
Cons: "I did not understand special with covid why half the plane was empty they keep us all together. Would have been nice to be able to spread out and have more room. Seats and leg room are small."
Cons: "Not repairing the engine of the aircraft while I’m on it. Not having to deplane due to the fact I felt unsafe."
Pros: "Enough leg and seat space for coach. Timely, easy boarding, clean airplane."
Cons: "Entertainment screens (though good selection for iPhone entertainment) , ability to charge phone."
Cons: "I was sitting in premium economy and there was no food left. Unacceptable on a long flight. Also on long flight they should give you the can to drink. One little cup of liquid and NO food not even a bag of pretzels or cookies was offered. They could have at least come around with water only later on"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "More drinks"
Cons: "Entertainment—screen was not visible from seat and sound did not work for first hour of flight"
Cons: "Plane flight got delayed until 6pm from 10:30am. What."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful"
Cons: "I missed my flight because of crew shortage."
Cons: "Crampt space, cold cabin"
Pros: "The flight itself was about as average as any other flight. At least all our luggage made it from the incoming flight from Key West to join us in Charlotte. That was our final destination but most of the passengers were making additional connections."
Cons: "The boarding went like the plane was ready to leave on time, except it didn't. There was a delay because the flight crew came from another arriving flight, so they had to go through the full pre-flight checklist. Then there was a "minor maintenance issue" that couldn't be fixed right away because it was "shift change" for the maintenance crews. Eventually they arrived and fixed whatever, while everyone was getting texts and alerts that kept delaying the departure by 15-minute intervals. Over an hour (while sitting in a warm plane) after the original scheduled departure, we left the gate, sat on the taxiway a while, then took off. Cabin crew only had cookies and drinks, no other snacks or food. All anyone got was an apology for the extended delay."
Pros: "Friendly staff,good food,entertainment was also top notch Staff helped me a lot;I am a nervous flyer and they checked on me regularly"
Cons: "Could have used a bit more room but I was not to squished"
Pros: "The staff was very cheerful and helpful !"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "Flying internationally is civilized even in coach. There is more legroom, the food and drink carts come by several times, and there are blankets and pillows for everyone. I think all cross country non stop domestic US flights should have the same coach amenities as trans Atlantic flights."
Cons: "The seats aren’t the comfiest on the 757. They are kind of stiff. But there is more legroom on international flights."
Pros: "The food was good....they kept bring us more and more."
Cons: "There wasn't a choice of movies and we all had to watch the same one with the screen in the middle of the aisle. I had to have my head at an angle and it got tired after a while..... We also had to pay an extra fee to choose seats that were together....that was a rip off!"
Cons: "Foods are so salty overall. No individual entertainment system available."
Pros: "Friendly flight crew and boarding agents."
Cons: "Entertainment system on the Boeing 757 was not up to par compared with other international flights that I have taken in the past."
Pros: "The food was good and there was a great entertainment selection."
Cons: "The one calling out the group numbers was unnecessarily rude. Then when I couldn't pull up my boarding pass to see my seat number the woman at plane's door acted like they was nothing she could do to find out my seat. Luckily another flight attendant actually knew how to do something and cared about me getting to my seat. For the flight, the air quality in the plane wasn't good and they seats felt like small prisons."
Pros: "I didn’t like it. I am still here and I hope i can fly back to ho chi minh without extra pay."
Cons: "Delay, pay extra money for different fly."
Cons: "We had a snow storm I arrived at the counter 75 minutes early. The staff were rude and unhelpful. By the time I got assistance it was 9:01and my flight would leave at 10:00. They would not check my bags. I had to be rescheduled for another flight tonight at 7:00. I hope it goes better. I still have received NO confirmation for my flight tonight."
Pros: "Quick service, respectful of need to sleep on an overnight flight. Much appreciated!"
Pros: "All else is fine."
Pros: "Entertainment, courtesy, flight attendants, and service"
Cons: "Just being confined. But that's the nature of that beast"
Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"
Pros: "Lots of movies. Constant trash collection and drink service"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. Dirty bathrooms."
Pros: "Overall okay."
Cons: "Of course the seats are too tight as always, but there was at least a meal served. The screens for the movies aren't positioned so all can see them well."
Pros: "Good service by crew and the food. That's about it."
Cons: "The plane was old -6 seats across no leg room, seats narrow, packed in like sardines. Isle monitors for entertainment - everyone to watch selected old movies. Sound so garbled in our seats that we couldn't watch. Almost 8 hour international flight costing over $800 USD. Terrible."
Pros: "Although the crew encountered a maintenance issue with the aircraft, another aircraft was provided and we were able to take off within an hour. So glad it wasn't cancelled!"
Cons: "Could not bring a guest into the Admirals Club during the flight delay, although I was allowed to do so on the same outbound leg. There seems to be inconsistency in the way the guest policy is applied (e.g., flying first class international)."
Cons: "Comfort was compromised because we had to sit in chairs against back bulkhead and chairs did not properly recline. Headphonesfor movies were not offered. Even though I tried to reserve aseat 24 hours ahead of time, the computer system was impossible to navigate."
Pros: "Our family was spread over the aircraft and American Airlines seated us together! The food and inflight movie were great! It was an excellent experience."
Cons: "Was a bit difficult to book through Kayak. I then had to call American Airlines for everything else, and next time I'll do that instead."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, easy. Lots of movie choices. Quiet flight."
Cons: "Flight attendant with an attitude. He announced the dinner choices but turned around the moment he began speaking. When I asked what he had said, he rolled his eyes. That's pretty disgusting and takes a lot away from the overall experience. Sorry, that I'm a burden when I paid a ton of money for this flight. And I had no extra or special requests. I'm an easy passenger. I didn't ring for service outside the scheduled ones once... E.V.E.R. Food was the same sweet sour chicken that I had on every one of my flights with American Airlines in the last few years. Come on. Mix it up a little. The flight is expensive enough. A tiny bit more pampering would just make the difference. And flight attendants with a pleasant and patient attitude would make things a lot easier."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and served multiple snacks through the flight."
Cons: "The plane was not only too small for a 7 hour international flight but the sound didn't work for the only video screen in the cabin. Perhaps bigger planes can't fly from Shannon but it would make me think twice about either flying American or through Shannon again."
Pros: "Great aircraft and a very attentive cabin staff. Food and beverages were served by friendly and pleasant attendants despite a full economy section. It isn't easy to be pleasant in such circumstances, but our cabin staff were - and this on an American airline!"
Cons: "Knee room was sparse but a considerate person in the seat in front of me keep her seat upright through the flight. I thanked her for that after we landed."
Cons: "Plane needed to be updated. CRT TVs still? More space in seating for such a long duration flight. Head rests that don't rise more than a few centimeter. What's the point then?"
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "*Kosher* meals are always better than regular meals on AA. Served first and meals are fuller and of higher-quality (on AA, at least)."
Cons: "Flight attendants partying with a row of passengers for over an hour. Southern bonding"
Pros: "Nice crew,very efficient."
Pros: "I liked that the seats had chargers (even though I didn't need them) and that they offered entertainment."
Cons: "Boarding was over 30 minutes late which ruined my SF plans. The crew was mot welcoming walking on or off the flight. They were also very rude when serving, one even gave me a super nasty look and mumbled something under her breathe because she ran into me. Just a terrible experience. They also didn't tell me baggage prices when I was there just swiped my card."
Pros: "Good service and friendly crew; efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped for a transatlantic flight, very uncomfortable. I have been flying to Ireland for many years and this plane was possibly the worst."
Pros: "On time. Smooth flight."
Cons: "A bit of wait I'm the taxi area in Miami. Not AAs fault double."
Cons: "Flight delayed for 4 hours"
Pros: "A free airline ticket!!"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that American Airlines cancelled my 17 Yr old neice's flight from Dallas to Denver over a thing called "timed-out". And had her sleep in a room with a cott instead of a hotel room. And the fact that we as customers pay good money for tickets only to be subject to the airlines way of business. It is absolutely unacceptable!"
Pros: "Pleasant travels. Small plane"
Cons: "Somewhat cramped. Very difficult getting seat assignment. Website confusing."
Cons: "A passenger seated next to me threw up all over me as we landed. We were seated towards the back, we should of been let out first because when I say threw up, I mean he THREW UP!! And the hosts looked less than pleased and just handed us paper towels to clean it up. Just not very friendly."
Pros: "I especially liked the flight attendants. Very friendly and polite and one in particular had a sense of humor and made everyone feel at ease. The whole process of our flight went smoothly with our flight so we were very pleased. There was a group of 10 of us on board. No one had any complaints. Thank you!!!"
