I fly American Airlines whenever I can because I have a credit card that give me points towards flights. Over the past several years I have flown with AA from LAX to DFW and onto Liberia, Costa Rica as well as many shorter flights from Orange County to Phoenix, Arizona and Orange County to Albuquerque, NM. I have not yet had any bad experiences and usually get Priority Boarding on my ticket which makes it a lot nicer especially in PHX which is one of the worst airports with the longest security lines. I like the fact that you can pre-select your seat with an online reservation. I have been fortunate to have had some of the best flight attendants compared to any airline I have flown.
