Mar 13, 2020

I truly appreciate the help of the British Air staff to ensure that we were able to access our tickets to fly from Chicago to Louisville. I realize the virus and travel ban are creating very challenging situations for staff to work with and the staff member who assisted us was exceptional.

Our flight attendant should have smiled more

Jun 25, 2019

The flight landing was delayed due to the storms but the captain was sure to alert us about that even thought Orbitz didn't. We found out minutes before we boarded. The flight attendants were quick, efficient, and very friendly. Great trip, AA!
