    I flew First Class from MCO to ORD on AA1221 on a MD80. I arrived at MCO at 17:30 thanks to the Disney Magical Express courtesy bus, which gives you instructions on how to find departures and get around the airport. Disney do a checked baggage facility for people staying at their hotels, but this ...

    DFW EWR 2 hours 35 mins Got seat 8A, bulkhead row in coach, no-one next to me, so a bonus. Althought he Super 80 does not feature in AA's plans for the long term future, the cabin was clean and tidy and in very good condition. Cabin crew were pleasant, the captain was particularly informative ...

    American's service was awful. My UA flight connecting in IAH was cancelled, so thew rebooked me on American. The boarding was short, but very unprofessional. The seats were in a 2-3 layout and covered with cheap cloth. The flight had no IFE whatsoever. There was no food or drink served at all on ...

    I flew AA first from DFW to ATL, it was a through flight from LAX so there was no opportunity to pay to use the AA Admiral's Club lounge but I found DFW to have a wide choice of places to get food (including a fast-food court with McDonalds) and a TGI Fridays. There wasn't much in the way of shops ...

    We flew from Las Vegas to New Orleans via Dallas F.W. Check in at L.V. was very busy but efficient using the kiosks and bag drop. We expected a baggage charge of $25 per bag but this was not levied! Boarding was orderley but I cant understand why they dont board rear seats first. We had 25A andB, ...

    Although I enjoy the quietness of the MD80 in the First class cabin, those planes are really getting old. AA did a good job on this flight to Las Vegas, it was on time, the FA attentive and the food acceptable. The only minus was the lengthy wait for the luggage to be delivered.

    LAX – LAS, January 09. Check is at Los Angeles was quick. The lounge area has enough to entertain yourself for an hour or so. The seat was surprisingly roomy. The service was quick. The staff was rude and walked up and down the chewing gum.
