I travel on American Airlines a lot both domestically and internationally and during my last vacation trip from New York to San Pedro Sula, Honduras, in economy was a experience I would not forget the check in agents, and the flight attendants were friendly. However, the aircraft when traveling from New York to Miami for my connection was very new but when I got off in Miami to make the connection from Miami to San Pedro Sula the aircraft was so old and in poor condition that I felt like putting my hands together and praying that we make it in one piece. I was delayed for two hours on the aircraft due to a flap that was malfunctioning. In addition, to make matters worst if I was not afraid already I was very afraid now. I kept hoping that they would move all the passengers to another aircraft because after two hours and hearing all that was happening I wanted off the plane. The seat cushions on this aircraft were very uncomfortable and old and looked like they rolled out of the 1950's. No meal service was available only food for purchase but the choice of snacks was good they had a large variety. My expectations for AA based on this experience left me disappointed because I have always flown AA and never encountered planes this old. However, after traveling with a few other Airlines I soon realized that they are probably in line with their competitors but if you choose to travel to the Caribbean, South or Central America expect to be disappointed!, And maybe your connecting flight will not be as scary as my ordeal.
