Only issue was that my TSA precheck didn’t go through. I called AA and they tried but were not successful. Thankfully security lines went quickly.

On a 2.5 hour flight, it took FA over an hour to begin inflight service. Also, pax were boarded with a known maintenance discrepancy causing a near hour long delay before leaving the gate.
