                                          My personal tv screen located in the head rest in front of me stopped working on my seat and attendant offered a 50$ travel voucher. She mentioned the plane was “old” and she hopes they get replaced soon. That didn’t comfort me in any way and the broken screen in front of me was now the least of my worries!

                                          The only drawback was my husband and my seats were separated and it’s our honeymoon so it’s hard not being to sit next to the one you are traveling with

                                          Had to pay for a ride to LA... bullshit... never again!!

                                          May 14, 2018

                                          Our flight was delayed by 2.5 hours, to start. AA had to fly mechanics in from elsewhere. The lady made a point about retrieving our bags off that plane and rerouting our travel. We went to Phoenix instead, we had 10 min to get to our connecting flight, so stressful as we barely made it!!! I tracked our bags which indeed went to LAX. By the time we finally got to Kona we were exhausted. Our bags were who knows where. Our bags did finally show up at 10:30 that night... but this changed our entire day the following day as we couldn’t plan our next day without the items in our list luggage.

                                          Very disappointing. Will not be flying American again.
