Awful experiences on American Airlines. You feel crushed and herded in like cattle. They offer zero amenities, and the planes are often a little grungy. I only had one crew in recent time that was polite and a joy to travel with, so kudos to them on our way to Boston. They weren't skimpy on complimentary beverages and just really wanted to make everyone comfortable. But they are a rarity!
I have been flying American since I was little from California to Hawaii. My family and I made the journey this Christmas, it was not memorable - in a good way. The airlines was on time and the people nice. On the way home, we were delayed for an hour on the tarmac with no apologies fir arriving late into Lax due to a mechanical problem. Passengers were late for their connections and no assistance was given to ensure that they would make their flight by the ground people. Glad we had a long layover to not worry about anything.
Always easy to work with and when I flew as a teenager they were very helpful and made sure that I made it to my destination. Also, I got a first class upgrade once which was awesome!
I really love American Airlines! Such a shame to see those who have had unpleasant experiences. Our flight from Dallas to Los Angeles went very smoothly! Plane was nice and clean white updates that didn't make you watch small scratchy tv's. Seats were on par to other airlines I've flown (but seats recline compared to cheaper airlines that don't even have seats that recline). They do charge for meals on planes for those that didn't know so bring your card if your hungry! Enjoy my flights through AA and wish I could fly with them every time!
Every time that I fly with them is just a reminder to never do it again, they do have a nice price, however, it's worthy to pay more and fly safe than to be with them. Last time I flew with them I waited 1 hour at the airplane, at the airport, and they asked us to live the airplane because it was with a mechanic failure... I had to wait for 5 hours in the airport with no food or anything at all to be placed in the next flight... never flying with them again!
I think American is good for between bigger cities and even international travel like when I went to Madrid with my mom, however Southwest honestly beats them for flights last minute between smaller cities within the US. Their service is pretty good, though I did once have to sit on the tarmac for about an hour and a half--more the fault of the airport though. It happens! Definitely fly AA!
I'm a loyal united flyer, when I went on american for the first time San Diego to Miami and an airbus a321 I was really amazed by how nice and new the aircraft was. There was a video screen on every seat with free entertainment. Then I went to my connecting flight on an old Boeing 737 from Miami to Orlando that looked like it was older than me. And I'm 25. Then I realized AA wasn't any more special than other US airlines. It has its brand new planes and has its old planes just like the other major airlines. Still a good airline :)
Only a good airline if you're a member. Otherwise, they only show the least popular seats. An airline with a lot of delays and issues, but the new fleet is much nicer than a lot of other planes I've been on. Worth it if you're a member, but not at all if you're not
This is my absolute favorite airline to fly with. The seats are comfortable, the people are kind and the snacks are great. The airline also informs you about everything that is happening. They are very specific and it allows you to feel safe and comfortable. They also are very good about the shows they show on the screens. Every time I've flown with them, I've loved my experience.
Have not flown with this airline in a while! Used to use it go to Haiti but I prefer JetBlue now the customer service is better with JetBlue 🤷🏾♀️ sorry not sorry
