Mobile Flights AA MAN via PHL

Hi, we have just sorted our flights for March and have booked through BA with Americans airlines Manchester to Orlando via Philadelphia. Just wanted to know peoples experiences with AA as weve never flown with them nor have we gone indirect before, always been Virgin to Orlando. We are doing a week at WDW then 5 nights in Tampa for WrestleMania.

Thanks

AA are my preferred airline at the moment, had great service last time doing man to phl to MCO and return TPA to phl to man.

American Airlines are a perfectly decent option certainly on a par with BA. Philly isn't the best airport in the US, but it certainly isn't the worst and it tends to have a good on-time record which is all you really need to care about as a connecting passenger

If I fly with "BA" always try to get a route operated by AA IMHO far better than BA better food better staff more room. Only slight concern I woudl avoid flights with them to CLT as they were using the old US Air tin but that may have stopped now.

Man to phl currently has an old 767 with no screen back ife scheduled to fly the route later this year.. So that's one to avoid.

We have avoided that route this year due to this.

Good to hear that they are going to be using a different plane next year.
We like AA and have flown that route a few times.
