Finally the was here, I wake up at 3:00AM and get ready as fast as possible!!! but my family wasn´t quickly as I am
 Sad , so we finished going out to the airport at 3:40am. At 4:15AM we arrived into the Airport and to the AA counter, the line for check-in was pretty long and the AA staff was really slow, witch is not good for me!!! We spend about a Hour in the check-in, but after that we had our boarding pass and ready to go to the Immigration Area, As you can Imagine the Immigration was slow as ever so we spend more than 45 minutes, At 6:25 we passed all the troubles in CCS and immediately call us for boarding the plane, So I don´t have any time to Photograph planes only the AA 737, sorry for the poor Quality

The boarding was really fast Because of the Capacity of the 737, at 6:47AM the Captain Closed the door and started our push back and taxiing for rwy 10 Departure. Here is some pics

We taxied for gate E4 and Finished my Trip in the Immigration Area when we went ot the airport at 11:00AM

Conclusions:

- American Has the better Service Between CCS-MIA with 4 Daily flight and really good Schedules.. My vote is 8/10
- American CCS Staff is really slow and they really need to improve the quality... 5/10
- The Plane was in Excellent Conditions, Inside was really clean 10/10
- Food Service, good but no great 7/10


So I hope you liked and sorry if I have mistakes in the report

I'm glad to hear you had a good experience on AA to MIA! I was curious, did they show a movie or just CBS Eye on America?

Thanks for the trip report!
