Re: Yes/No Poll: Do You Like American Airlines?

Im sure they can be as good as any airline. It depends on the crew. But honestly..i would spend 60-80 bucks more on a euro/asian/any other than the US2 (UA AA) DL though.. Ive had many positive experiences on them. But i would still Fly VS over DL if i had the choice.
