The pilot on this plane was so funny. Considering everything that is going around in this crazy world right now it was good to hear someone w a sense of humor. Thanks American Airlines. Also, that’s for movie screens.

Flight from Dallas to Detroit went well. No delays.

Nov 20, 2019

I’m very allergic to cats and dogs so I’m concerned about future flights when I see pets allowed on the plane. What should I do if a pet is placed close to me on a plane?

Earphones jacks need to be replaced. This is the second flight in 5 months that the plugs were loose and shorted.

The only thing I was not satisfied with was the fact that I was forced to check my carry-on bag when there was plenty of overhead space still available. I was part of the last group to board and I am very understanding when it comes to this, but I did not understand why I was made to check it in when there were multiple empty bins near my seat.
