American airlines really could improve their online check-in process. It is difficult to find the record locator and check in to your flight. On Southwest airlines, for example, the check-in process is completed with one click.

I’ve learned a new trick. No one has to pay for luggage as long as you get to your gate. Everyone offers free baggage check and I find that exasperating because I had to pay for mine in advance. Totally not fair!

Great flight but small seats.

Smooth process, efficient staff, friendly personnel. Thank you!

Space is getting smaller and smaller. On first flight, seat padding was flat, making you sit with your upper body in the shape of a C-my back was aching by the end of the flight. On second flight, seats were newer and padding was better, and head rests did not force your head forward.
