Flights were on time, no surprises.

Dec 23, 2019

Wheel chair service requested during booking. Indy was great. At Ohare, assistance was not there upon arrival. I walked to gate ground crew desk. Ground crew at desk kind of rude. She checked and saw wheelchair had been requested. Told me to go sit and wait. After 15 minutes, I began walking. Met wheelchair after walking quite a distance. Very disappointed with this.

Oct 23, 2019

Plane left late and we had to run a very long way to catch connecting flight and barely made it.

Baggage ended up on the wrong carousel at my destination

Pretty quiet

Jan 23, 2019

Flew two segments from Indianapolis to Sarasota. Both were on time and had great flight and cabin crews. I did have to pay $30 to check one item of luggage, but since I flew basic economy I was aware of that charge. Really good job by AA.

Dec 4, 2018

Flights were delayed slightly. Not too inconvenient. I did the the baggage check was a little redundant. I chose one check bag & enter a my credit card when I checked in in the app. Then I still had to use the self-service kiosk when I got there. Just seemed like I already did that but the staff member was friendly & helpful.

Nov 16, 2018

Entertainment was lacking in a big way

Sep 24, 2018

It would be nice to have a gluten-free FREE snack option, like Delta offers. I have celiac disease, which has become more common in the population, and I can't eat anything that has gluten in it.
