I've flown to USA twice in the last couple of years with AA, and both times have been just satifactory.
While I appreciate the cost of oil is driving airfares through the roof, customers still expect something for their money.
AA have a very swift and easy check-in process, but then again I have never had a troublesome check-in with any airline. I thought AA were supposedly the equivalent of British Airways but there is something rather 'budget' about AA these days. Firstly, when did you have to start paying for an alcoholic drink on a flight?
Maybe this is a new thing across the board, but I felt like saying 'Cmon, this flight is £100 more expensive than a year ago and you now want to also charge me for a beer??'
The Food: Always leaves a lot to be desired, but this was BAD! I just couldnt stomach and felt bloated for a couple of days after. Airlines need to keep things simple. Stop trying to create fancy meals in the sky. The best things I have eaten on a plane have been snack things like sandwiches and muffins. A piece of fruit on top and i'd be content with that!
The Entertainment: Not that bad actually, a good selection of movies/tv shows to keep me occupied. But the headphones they supply are terrible. Fortunately I had my own with me, as will most people these days I imagine.
Flight Punctuality: Well we left 45 minutes late because there was not enough water on the plane. But we only arrived 15 minutes late. I think airline schedules are all made up anyway. If there isnt much cloud cover the flight time is always quicker.
So all in all, I expected more from what I perceived to be a 'premium' airline. But i guess until I can actually afford anything other than coach class, I'll never be a happy flyer
Summary: Not as premium as I had imagined
