My experience over many years of flying on American has always been a good one. This trip was no exception. The flight crew were kind and accommodating. Flying may be uncomfortable at times, but keeping a sense of humor and decorum always makes things better, Flight 1270 was smooth. As was the flight from Charlotte to Albany. We returned to San Diego out of Philadelphia and I had the same experience - a kind, helpful and accommodating flight crew. In my opinion the flight crews work hard. They have to interact with a myriad of personalities and sometimes “the obnoxious”. I have always found if you give respect you get the same in return.
