Dec 25, 2019

The staff constantly made announcements. While some we're the necessary ones we expect, many were absolutely frivolous and irritating as they were also quite loud and uncomfortable if you were listening to music and were interrupted. PLEASE MAKE THEM STOP.

Great flight crew on London to Chicago leg AA 91

Jul 31, 2018

We were not happy that after landing, we had to wait for over 30 minutes inside the plane as there was no gate available.
