                                          Huge improvement over my Spirit experience from 5-6 years ago. It's completely different, modern, and efficient. Comfortable seats with room.

                                          Feb 24, 2020

                                          The flight from American Airlines before this was late this flight was late when I got on to this flight and went to my seat that I paid more for 4 extra legroom and a preferred spot that weird silver entertainment box that steals the foot space that you pay for was ripped open and had the metal facing my feet. I told the flight attendant and her response as she walked by with the look at me and say I don't know anything about that. It later became a big issue when they finally realize it was serious and then they wanted to deal with it mid-flight. They wanted me to move despite the fact I paid for my seat but couldn't really understand why I was upset about this metal box being open with the door that open into my foot stays with a sharp metal Edge facing me

                                          I missed this flight connection due to delay of my BNA flight to Dallas. No connection.

                                          Bad weather conditions. Out of anyone’s control

                                          flight delayed 12 hours. never flying AA again

                                          Jul 20, 2018

                                          I was not aware of the information on basic economy. When we got there it felt like we were treated different than other customers. I did not know until the airport that I couldn’t use the overhead bin and could only use the area by my feet for my check in. Also the flight had TVs on the seats but ours did not have tv or movies due to getting the basic economy

                                          Jun 10, 2018

                                          AA connecting flight cancelled and rebooked for the next day. Stuck in DFW airport without any offers from the airline for the inconveniences caused.

                                          TSA held up the the line and did not open extra check points till the last five minutes before the flight was to leave. Had to be booked on following day. Very unhappy with TSA
