Sadly, we don't have much trust in American Airlines because my husband travels frequently out of Columbia, Missouri, and his flights home have often been delayed. We still like flying out of Columbia, though, so we take our chances. Our trip to Cancun (COU to ORD to Cancun and then the return trip from Cancun to DFW to COU ran on time! I watched two movies from Chicago to Cancun. On the way back, I slept through both segments. Economy was as fine as it's ever going to be. We traveled light and didn't check baggage.
