I wanted to book tickets for the very next day so, i researched on the internet to find the best suitable airlines for myself. As per my research the american airlines came out to be best with cheap flight rates and best services. I did not wanted to book tickets through the website of american airlines as i had some doubts to clear. I called up american airlines but i had to wait for 3 mins to connect with a representative. After connecting, the representative was soft spoken and he helped me to get my flight tickets booked. The representative also cleared up all my doubts and queries, the call was very helpful for me and i was ready for my flight. The in flight services and facilities of american airlines were also top class, they offer good quality food and drinks during the flight. Crew members of american airlines were polite and assistive all the time with the passengers.
