This flight and our connecting flight AA 1252 from Dallas to Sacramento were almost identical. Both flights were full and had on time arrivals. In both cases boarding could have been much better. The boarding areas were congested and the "gate fleas" crowded around the lanes designated for boarding by zone. The zones were called quickly but the line backed up in the jet way. On both flights our tray tables were dirty and sticky. The flight attendants were pleasant but on these 4 and 3 1/2 hour flights
there was only one beverage service and additional water was not offered. On a more positive note the luggage came quickly in Sacramento.
