Very cramped in economy

Dec 12, 2018

Customer service Agent in Australia WAS AWESOME!!!!

I just wish there was more room in the seats!!

LAX was horrible. It was dirty and some of the international airport staff were rude.

Jul 30, 2018

The flight to Australia was incredible. The flight returning to Los Angeles was not. The plane was old and my seat cushion was loose and I spent most of the 13+ hours sitting on metal. Some of the flight crew was a bit unfriendly. They also ran out of food for our lunch and we had no choice.

Jul 26, 2018

On the older planes the seats are not as roomy as on the newer planes. So the ride going wasnt as comfortable as our ride home. And we were notified that our flight was changed causing us to lose time in our second vacation location, but no compensatiin was made or offered.

American Airlines was great! There was a medical emergency on our international flight and they handled it professionally and seriously. I was impressed!

Mar 16, 2018

Easy transfer of luggage.

Feb 22, 2018

More time should be allowed for changing planes at LA; I needed Express Passes and to run between terminals and the airport to just make it in time, despite the plane being slightly early and my bags getting through quickly.
