Bad - no included suitecase in price...not even one...what long distance transportation is so discarding of their passangers as to not allow them to take clothes and personal hygiene items. I don't feel this airline understands its passengers. I didn't feel appreciated by this airline.

Very happy with Obitz American Airlines flight = great pre-selected seat and inflight entertainment (Amazon Prime selections)....Wish the flight price was cheaper, but it is the holidays! Overall - very happy with outward bound flight = hope return trip is just as enjoyable! :)
