                                          Appreciate flight attendants allowing flight to get off on time without a full complement of flight attendants. Would have missed connection otherwise

                                          All went smoothly at check in, but it would've been helpful to have a staff member available to direct people who's flight had a shorter departure window. The flight attendants were professional and friendly!!

                                          Seats need to be wider. That is not your fault.

                                          Entertainment could be better. The staff was excellent.

                                          The flight at SFO was delayed and passenger would miss connecting flight in Philadelphia to continue on to Paris, France.Passenger had to switch flights to another airline , Air France which was able to accommodate him to Paris with a direct flight even!. Though he had to wait 3.5 hours longer he still arrived at about the same time he originally would of on your airline. Biggest problem is that his luggage was to be pulled and put on the new flight, but nothing arrived when he got to Paris. 1 day later still no luggage.My son was told that luggage is still at the San Francisco International airport. I wonder if it went to Philadelphia? Air France airline iskindly going to deliver him a set of clean clothes and let him know when or if his suitcase ever arrives in Paris!! Pretty shitty service from your airline. Oh, also he paid for preferred seating on his American flights for SFO and Philadelphia flight which he did not end up riding on. How can we get that reimbursed? Hopefully his flight home with your airline will be better and have no incidents next Sunday, 6/9/19. We will see!!!

                                          your company lied to me. Look it up. You should be ashamed of yourselves. I am out $100 because of you.

                                          Poor communication about two broken planes and a five hour delay with no compensation was inexcusable

                                          Jun 23, 2018

                                          1. check in procedure : agent is free .. not doping much .. so I go directly with 2 bags to check in to the agent bypassing kiosk .. the agent tries hard to send me back to the kiosk .. but checks me in at the counter anyway .. why would I need to use kiosk if i'm dropping bags anyway .. moronic 2. service in flight : asked for coffee .. was told .. no hot beverages served on this flight due to turbulence .. what a BS!! .. flew enough to know the difference .. turbulence is not a reason not to serve hot coffee 3. This is 5 hour flight taking off late night .. when we go Europe on 5 hour flights overnight .. u get decent meal included in the price of airfare .. not on this flight ..shameful!!!

                                          Delayed an hour and a half, not weather related

                                          Jun 18, 2018

                                          Once again the flight was delayed and I was forced to sit in seat that did not recline next to the bathroom because of was traveling with some one and even though I book my trip a month in advance they wanted us to sit 5 rows apart. That is totally unacceptable the San Francisco to Philadelphia portion of trip was horrible two months in a row.

                                          I tire of being treated as a second class citizen, with services being rendered as if it were a privelage to fly on a plane as opposed to something I paid for. Smile attendants, it's your job, enjoy it or do something else. I felt as if I were a nuisance asking for water, forbid me if I asked for nuts (which I didn't). And when
