Maybe not treat the passengers like cattle.

Very good service, on time, excelent. Equipment

El servicio a bordo excelente, Pablo una gran persona, pero el atraso en la salida fue demasiado

The kindness of the staff was very refreshing.

Flight incrementally delayed for hours without advance notice, at the very last minute changed by over two hours into past midnight

I liked how fast the trip was. The cheese ITs we got where stale

The was just Ok but the flight was 2 hours and 44 minutes late in arriving to Phoenix. Thus departure was 11:59pm then pushed to 2:30.

Cons: "Something has to be done with your entertainment system. Not only was it not working going out of Newark to Phoenix but also was not working on the return flight home. They tried to reboot it several times and it still didn’t work. You seen your advertising that you’re not going to be bored well it’s not true I was bored It made for a very unpleasant experience and I was very disappointed."

Pros: "JetBlue provides little sleeping mask and earplugs and I think that is a lovely touch for an overnight flight."

Pros: "The flight was normal. The crew was nice and the flight itself was painless."
Cons: "There were only two flights, one to my and one to Boston. My bag went to the wrong place and the way they handled it was disgusting. Making us run around the airport with no answers and nobody wanting to check the conveyer belt. Then they said if they found it they would let me know. They found the bag and they said by 6:30. Well, 6:30 passed and they had my bag but they couldn't tell me when it would be delivered and they use a third party company who they didn't have a contact number for or any answer as to when it would be delivered (I needed several things for work so it was a rush). Lastly, the lady I spoke to on the phone said it was my fault that I would not be there to receive the bag the following day as they did what they are supposed to. I was really surprised with how bad this customer service was as a whole. No communication and just nasty."

Cons: "Seats crowded no leg room"
Pros: "Legroom was excellent! Crew were nice."
Cons: "Flight was very late, I had to delay my ferry reservation to their last trip. Not sure if anyone is responsible for it, but your email directed us to get to the airport at the same time as originally scheduled. That's not fair. I could have slept a couple more hours (which I'm in dire need of). Flight delay would not have been so bad had not been for that direction."
Cons: "No in flight entertainment 1 lousy bag of pretzels"

Cons: "It would be nice to have vegetarian options and the entertainment options were down. This is no way a big deal. I just mention it as there are more and more people embracing vegetarianism so if you want to be on the front lines of customer care, that would certainly make you one of the top ones in that regard alone! Pura Vida! Dave"

And it came super dirty. I’ve never had an airline not bag the caraway. Especially when I asked. Southwest is a better company to work with. Disappointed"

Pros: "Boarding & crew were excellent. Very polite."
Cons: "On flights 0204 & 1687 on 9/21/16---there were no blankets available for comfort. I would expect this since I paid extra for the delta comfort seats. Not very nice☹️ Only Chardonnay & Merlot wines were available. if you're going to carry two full bodied wines then you should carry two light wines as well. For example a Riesling or Pinot noir. I could not drink either of the wines delta carried. Furthermore, I tend to eat low carb & sugar snacks. All the snacks offered were high in carbs except the peanut packs. Delta only had one peanut pack on board. They had many pretzels , bananas & yogurt bars which were high sugar & carbs! Try carrying some Greek plain yogurt & unsweetened vanilla almond milk. TY for your attention."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and airlkne system was down"
Pros: "Flight was great and crew was very nice as usual."
Cons: "When I got to Guatemala I was told I couldn't check in unless I had a ticket leaving Costa Rica. I have never had a problem with this in the past.

Pros: "Airplane crew was friendly. The flight departed on time."
Cons: "We traveled with an infant who sat on our laps. We were never asked about the infant traveling until we went to check in at the desk and were told we needed to pay taxes for the baby at a rate of 10% of the cost of the ticket. But because we were doing it on the day of the flight, 10% was almost $200! We did not receive good customer service from staff, who simply told us we "should have known to investigate this." We have never been asked to do this when flying with a baby before! This was after an hour and a half of already waiting to check in our bags. We were waiting so long and dealing with this issue for so long that we almost missed the flight! A terrible experience. Also, the web check in line took even longer than the line of people who had not checked in online beforehand! It was so slow, it added to us almost missing our flight. It was a waste of time to check in online, especially since they gave us new boarding passes when we checked our bags in anyway. We also had trouble finding both of our reservations, even though we booked them together as a family, so we ended up with seats that were not together. When we had an issue, we were given an attitude by the staff checking us in."

Cons: "Changed gates at Panama without any alert until boarding time."

Cons: "El aeropuerto internacional de Panama es sencillamente horrible y extremadamente caro y ni siquiera wifi free hay para los pasajeros que como yo tenemos que hacer escala. La señal para llamar por teléfono usando mi propia proveedor. Es un aeropuerto del siglo pasado que ya es hora COPA que tiene su centro de operaciones pongan de su parte para hacer más placentero la estadía en ese aeropuerto; aeropuertos como el CR o el de Bogotá no más sale uno del avión y hay excelente wifi que le permite a uno estar en contacto con la familia."
Pros: "The aireplane in clean. And the people ver y gently"
Cons: "Board not very organized"
Cons: "I went on the site and mentioned I was vegetarian, but I guess the 'snack' wasn't big enough to warrant a veggie option. I had to run from one flight to another, and my previous one only served breakfast, so it would have been really nice to have a veggie option. I put poor on entertainment because there was none, but it was a short flight, so not a big deal. Rest was great!"

Cons: "Entramos al avión 20 min tarde. Nos pusieron esperar en el avión, completamente full de pasajeros, 30 min sin aire acondicionado (en panamá, donde hace TANTO calor)! Después, tuvimos que esperar en la pista unos 20 min más, todavía sin aire acondicionado. Finalmente, pasamos casi todo el vuelo con los platos vacíos de la comida en nuestras mesas. JUSTO cuando el piloto dijo "prepara para aterrizar", pasaron corriendo para recoger la basura. En total, fue un vuelo muy incómodo. We boarded 20 min late. They made us wait on the plane, a completely booked flight, for 30 min without air conditioning (in Panamá, where the temperature is insufferable)! Later, we had to wait on the runway another 20 min, still lacking air conditioning. Finally, we spent almost the entire flight with our empty meal trays sitting in front of us. RIGHT when the captain announced "flight crew prepare the cabin for landing", the crew ran through to pick up the trays and trash. In total, it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Pros: "Everything about them. The crew is so helpful and kind, flights are always on time, the planes are in great condition and the amenities included with your tickets makes it worth to choose COPA!"

Pros: "It was a short flight....they made the trip comfortable, and on time..."
Cons: "No complaints....."

Guy sitting next to me didn’t wear his mask the entire time and flight attendants didn’t ask him to wear it. Strange since they usually do, but he took it off immediately upon sitting down and it wasn’t addressed for the 2 hour flight. WiFi wasn’t operational.

The puddle jumper from Charlotte to Asheville often appears to be a low priority, if not for American Airlines then Charlotte International Airport. We had a tight connection (45 minutes), made worse by malfunction of gateway which took agonizing time to repair. I got no less than 3 gate changes, all in Concourse E, the farthest away from B where we landed. Fortunately airport people were great with a wheelchair for my wife, without which we would have missed the connection. Then, when we arrived at the resigned gate, the wheelchair attendant had to try times to get gate personnel to direct her to the right gate. Finally, when we went down stairs, we were redirected to a plane at least 300 yards from where we went down the stairs. If all that weren't enough, the two flight attendants appeared more interested in flirting with each other than paying any attention to the travelers. Avoid this connection if you can. Delta much better customer service.

Plane was exceptional clean. Crew polite, efficient

Only sad part is one bathroom worked in entire aircraft! And one Barbie sized bag pretzels 🥨 doesn’t cut it

Miss two days of my trip . Now I have to go back to AZ. Nov 14.

Extremely late

Delayed little by little, so there was no chance to sleep longer or go out to eat. Missed connection flight and did not offer allocation, had to request it and $12 for lunch dinner and breakfast. No transport to hotel provided so there is another $120 in uber to get there.

Also, the legroom was laughable, as the person in front of me hit my knees as soon as he began reclining."
Pros: "First class seating comfort and service. Even my flight in the main cabin was relatively comfortable, but I'm a smaller stature person so... On time promise kept every flight."
