American have not always been good to fly with. This was one of the best services (on board only) I've recieved. What was better was AA didnnt charge for checked baggage and gave me free seat selection. Wonderful big thank you :)

Online checking confusing, then couldn't do online.

This flight was delayed due to technical reasons, but the staff dealt with this issue in a calm and professional manner.

Beware, American Airlines charge extra for everything: seats, luggage etc. Would look elsewhere before booking again, however easy it was, as felt taken advantage of every step of the way.

I am a very nervous flyer and the staff on BA 225 could not have been more caring! They were extremely attentive and so very friendly. What a wonderful group of people! I will be flying with BA from now on!

It would have been good if you could have seated us together as we only booked 2 seats and did it at the same time.
