One bag was delayed but American had it delivered to our hotel that evening.

Please go back to just having people board the plane according to seat #. The current way is humiliating.

Great flight!

Nov 15, 2018

My experience was overall great! I have not flown in years and my last flight was with another airline, I was hesitant to try a different airline but I’m glad I did! The flight was so smooth and I barely felt the take off and landing. I don’t like flying but I’m thankful that American Airlines made this a good experience for me.

Aside from sitting on the tar mat for an hour it wasn't to bad. On such a long flight it would be nice if the TV screens were on our seat. I was unable to see the one that hung down because the guy ahead of me was tall.
