Generally AA is good in the Trans-Atlantic Y service, however, as stated above, the crew can be a bummer most of the time, although I have had some FA's that are not the typical AA international FA(old, decrepid, boring). Instead, one had a dry sense of humor and showed it, which lightened the mood a bit. The service is great, but the small things aren't apparent. Generally, there are no hot-towels, and there no amenity kits, and this was before 9/11.
AA does well in the big things, but lacks in the small little touches.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...
