Long flight needed snacks

I would like to add that check in at San Jose is really slow. We didn't get why we checked, waited in line and then we were called up by name to tag suitcases. Crazy slow and it was very early in the morning. Glad we flew early. Could not imagine had it been busy. TSA was very slow as well...

Will fly AA again.

Plane did not have individual entertainment like that of our previous flight. Baggage was a fee, seatbelt was smaller on this plane than the previous.

Very unhappy because they broke the zipper on my new suitcase an ripped it. This was my first time I had used this suitcase.
