Cons: "I was completely rerouted at the last minute to take 3 flights instead of just one and completely missed all of my other connections. Avianca forced to to travel for over 36 hours and continued to have all of my rerouted flights delayed. It was the worst travel experience of my life and i received no help or compensation for missing all of my other flights. All thy gave me was one stale muffin. I will never fly with this airline again."
Pros: "Leg space"
Cons: "Everything. We have flown over 6 flights with Avianca this month. Every single one of them was delayed or cancelled. Not one apology. Not one upgrade. Nothing. We missed 4 days out of our family vacation due to Avianca's terrible service and airline. We went to 3 different offices and called the call center 3 times, we sent 4 emails to no response. Do not fly with them ever."
Pros: "Easy flight to Dulles. It's always nice to be fed too. Professional flight attendants."
Cons: "Everything was fine. No complaints."

Cons: "The pushy attitude of the check in hostesses"

Cons: "The service and entertainment wasn't as good traveling on this airline to the US as it was traveling from the US. Barely any entertainment besides fold down small TVs for every 4 rows. The app they tell you to download was useless on this flight too."

Cons: "Final destination flight was canceled and was not offered a refund for the hotel in my final destination and was only offered a $56 credit in the countries currency but I paid dollars. On the return flight I was give. A huge hassle because I had a carry on and a personal article. Avianca wanted me to check in my carry on but my flight landed in Miami at 2:30am. The reason I took a carry on was so that I would not have to wait for suitcase. Would never fly with them again. They can keep their credit as far I am concerned."

Pros: "Very pleasant and friendly"
Cons: "Good service"
Cons: "Suppose to fly out at 3pm, socked in by fog, by the time that cleared and other flights had left, told the plane would fly at 8 pm. 8 pm, no boarding, finally an explanation a tire needed to be changed. No further updates as to was it really going to fly that night. Finally about 10pm, flyers were offered a 5:45 am flight and those who didn't want that could wait to see if the plane would leave at 11pm. If it didn't don't know what one would do. People were gathered around the one agent, trying to re-book their flight, getting upset. Finally at 11, it was announced it would fly, nobody cheered because nobody believed it. It did fly and after collecting luggage in Bogota it was too late to get to the reserved hotel. Ending up spending the rest of the night in the airport to catch an early flight out. Avianca handled the delay poorly, very little communication and assurance, felt hostage to their bottom line."
Pros: "I liked the way the crew treated the pasengers and helped them I wished every avianca crew was like this one"
Cons: "First plane, small. Food"
Pros: "It is super comfortable and the entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The food didn't taste great. It seems to be a general problem with Avianca pilots but usually the take-off and landings are bad. You will usually hear people say "aaaaah" during landing just because the pilots depart waaay to fast."
Pros: "Yeah, I had no problems with Avianca"
Pros: "The flight departed on time, in-service food (not as expected flying economy), arrived on time to IAD. Overall: good."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Generous food and drinks. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Kind and respectful personnel"
Cons: "I was asked to be at the La Paz airport 3 hr before international flight, so did I, only to see the check in open 1.5 hours before the flight, more consistency needed"
Pros: "Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "It would be nice to have food options that do not include meat. However, in general the food was poor."
Pros: "Poor attitude by crew members. Upon arrival back to the USA, found luggage had been broken and items lost. I spent 1 hour filing paperwork with Avianca- two months later and I have not heard from them. Unbelievable. Will not fly Avianca again."
Cons: "Everything. I missed the flight because I was sleeping near the gate after two night flights and no one called me to board the airplane. I got only stress from this flight. Regards, Iadviga"
Pros: "The crew was so prifessional"
Cons: "Flight was almost an hour late, everyone lined up to board and they didn't boder to make any announcement or explanation. How rude!"
Pros: "The flight was in scheduled"
Cons: "There was ONE crew member from Avianca welcoming passengers as soon as you got there, but this person disappeared after he got the forms filled out ... I didn't know who to ask about the vip room because there was no one from Avianca around so I had to spend my 2 hours sitting in the waiting room without wifi and been Cold and hangry when I as a executive class passenger was able to have access to the VIP room . That I didn't like . Also, when we were boarding the plane there was another plane for the same gate that we were boarding passengers, too ... In another words I didn't like that airport . I'll make sure never again if I can to go through la Paz, Bolivia."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Initially separated from my minor child and had to change seats. Also, my tweezers were taken away."
Cons: "1. The flight departed two hours late. The airline offered no explanation or apology. We wound up landing in Washington at 2:00 a.m. 2. Boarding in Panama was chaotic. There was no P.A. system, so we had to strain to hear the shouting airline employees. 3. There were no individual entertainment monitors. There were screens that dropped down about every five rows. All passengers would have to watch the one movie selected by the airline. I was so far from the nearest screen that I could barely see it. 4. The food was awful. 5. The seats were very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Flight crew. Berry nice"
Cons: "To many kid's crime on the 5hr flight"
Pros: "Everything was pretty-much great."
Cons: "Was told that headphones were going to be issued. Never got any, so I couldn't watch any movies...."
Pros: "I flew business class. Having extra leg and seat room made a huge difference in my comfort. The staff on both the flight down and on the flight back were wonderful. I have mobility issues and they made sure I could safely get up to the restroom and to stretch my legs when I needed to. I will definitely fly Copa again."
Cons: "There was a second security check before passengers could enter the gate. No drinks were allowed past. I was thirsty before and during my flight."

Pros: "We made it on time"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the crew can offer water more often"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable"
Cons: "Broke my wheel off my check luggage, food wasnt good. Staff are somewhat curt & could be more friendly/accomodating."
Pros: "Quick board and deboard and the breakfast was OK"
Cons: "Flight was almost 5 hours long and we weren't allowed to bring beverages on the plane from the Panama airport (which was kind of nuts in my opinion, since I'd just gotten off another plane and had already gone through security); the flight crew only distributed beverages once. I've taken 3 hour flights where the beverage cart has gone up and down the aisle twice! I was really thirsty by the time I got off the plane, and then by the time I got through customs, it had been like 6 hours since I last had anything to drink!! They really should have offered customers AT LEAST water at some point later in the flight."
Pros: "All the way it should be!"
Pros: "The flight & the attendants were all great - the food was good & the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost an 1 hr. waiting for the airport to load the luggage. I could not understand the person making the announcements on the plane. It was garbled & so none of us really knew what he said on any of his announcements, We arrived at D.C. & we did not get our luggage. They said at the D.C. airport we would receive an email within 24 hours regarding our luggage. We didn't. They gave us a # to call - no one answered that #. We were supposed to get an email with our case # - we didn't. We were told on the plane we would get a bag of necessities - but we didn't. My husband had to keep calling different #'s to try to get ahold of someone to tell them about our luggage."

Cons: "additional xray at gate and requirement to leave all water bottle behind."

Pros: "On-time departure and arrival Friendly and courteous staff"
Cons: "Old Plane No USB charging connectors"
Cons: "My mom had wheelchair service and the person who take care of the put her on lines fir two hours and she missed the flight connection. Even do she showed him several times the boarding pass fir the next flight. And then set her on the wrong area."
Pros: "Breakfast was actually good for airline food. Boarding was way late. The security in panama made everyone throw out water so I wasted $4. They also were not thorough at all and abandoned the metal detector at one point."
Pros: "Service is good and food is fine"
Cons: "Not happy with the lack of tv screens and movies."
Pros: "All of my flights were on time. Flight staff and gate attendants were curteous. Planes were clean and service on the plane was wonderful."
Pros: "The only good thing was boarding"
Cons: "Well i would think it would be a better expiernce cuz I've heard that copa was a good airline and their service was excelent but i was wrong the food was dry and the people were rude the entertainment was a joke. The music would play the same song's over and over."
Cons: "There needs to be some snack options in business class after the light meal."
Pros: "Always sent notification"
Pros: "The flight attendants were super nice, and caring, they brought me a new pair of headsets when the original one broke."
Pros: "I have flown with COPA for years and they never fail to impress me. Food is great for what it is (aircraft food) one of the best I have ever had. flight is pleasant and smooth most of the time. always super helpful and make it a seamless experience"

Cons: "Planes are old and outdated, no entertainment for medium/longer-haul flights"

Cons: "No seat-back TV Small leg space The seats in the front row of Exit doors do not recline"
Pros: "Service was good loved feeling special"
Pros: "Did not make flight, overbooked"
Cons: "We were faced with many difficulties throughout the process including delays at every stage (plane boarding, takeoff, bus shuttles, etc.) of four different flights. The flight to Panama City was a significantly more enjoyable experience, but the return trip was absolutely miserable. After being boarded, we waited on the runway with no explanation for over a half hour. Then the flight staff came through with a very mediocre dinner and drink; however, they never came back for anything else until the customs form, and any attempts to flag them down were fruitless. When I finally got their attention, I requested water, and never received it. It was an incredibly frustrating and thirsty experience."
Pros: "everything was great."
Cons: "the AC on the Guatemalan Airport"
Pros: "The movies and the crew were very friendly."
Cons: "The waiting on the departure of the plane"
Cons: "Took off an hour late for no reason. Just sat on the runway watching planes take off. Made us not arrive back in DC until after 2am."
Pros: "Love it great service great flight"
Cons: "Security at the gate was an annoyance. We could not bring on drinks we had previously purchased after clearing security. We could not figure out how to transport liquor we would have liked to have purchased at Lima duty free shop through Panama and on to US. Prefer when individual TV sets are available. The meal was light, could have been more substantial."
Cons: "The cabin was too cold.....and we had at least three different departure gates"
Pros: "Food was provided."
Cons: "Took off late."
Cons: "The fact that we were delayed for 2.5 hrs. But that was the act of God."
Pros: "I was pleased with everything"
Cons: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "Boarding at Panama was a mess. Completely disorganized chaos. So bad on the other end there were immigration people screaming at the crew "Copa - help your passengers a little"."
Cons: "This was fine because it was a United flight"
Pros: "Boarding process and customer service"
Cons: "Food could have been better and seating comfort"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Entertainment has old movies. I don’t pay less to fly rouge, and sometimes I may not have a choice. At least they should have the same movie content as the planes that provide movies outside of the rouge app."
Pros: "I got to my destination safely, luggage came out guickly n intact."
Cons: "I have no complaints. I taught the flight was good."
Pros: "Quick and easy"
Pros: "Very happy with my trip"
Cons: "My lineup in USA entry line was ridiculous and I missed my boarding time because it was as hard to get the air Canada attendants attention so I ended up waiting 40 minutes anxious about missing my plane. Their kiosks weren’t working proper hence the longer line."
Cons: "Would nice to have better and more movie choices"
Cons: "Not much knee room"
Cons: "7:05am Flight got cancelled and they saw fit to rebook us on a 20:30pm flight.. decided to reroute us to anotjer city in canada and down to a different airport in DC Lost my luggage from time i checked it it at 0500am yo time dflight was cancelled and rebooked at 0700. And to fike claim and travrl without jt. Worst experience ever."
Cons: "Wirnessed a nasty discussion between crew member and passanger."
Cons: "Air Canada is always late in my experience. I always end up waiting at the gate for the inbound flight which happens to be late. It is so annoyingly dishonest, considering that the flight is announced as on-time up until minutes before the departure time. When all along they know the incoming flight is late. After we boarded the plane at origin, we spent 15 minutes at the gate and quite a bit on the runway. When nearing the DCA, the plane took a complete detour went near Baltimore and then Annapolis and then flew back to near Gaithersburg as if it was intentionally wasting time on the air. Upon landing in DCA we had to wait 15 minutes on the taxiway waiting for the gate to clear. The (one hour long) flight that was scheduled to land at 10:20pm landed just before midnight. Air Canada is awful. This happens every time I fly with Air Canada and their conduct is just cheap and dishonest."
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Pros: "Easy boarding."
Cons: "Video screen loose and no volume control, so Oud I couldn't watch. No food-na more applicable. Seats uncomfortable and tight."
Cons: "Arrived in Montreal six hours late"
Cons: "Nice flight. A bit of delay, otherwise everything was fine as always :)"
Pros: "They afford a civil and enhanced trip on an Express flight. Something AA and other airlines consistently fail to do."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, considering there were just over two hundred passengers to manage. The crew was excellent: responsive, courteous and proactive. Entertainment: Overall plenty of options though some were dated. Food: surprisingly good, and COMPLIMENTARY. Didn't have to pay extra."
Cons: "Coach is CRAMPED. And on a 14-hour flight, that's important.."
Pros: "Everything was quick and efficient in boarding and replanting, the captains spoke to us to tell us what was going on. Food was good."
Cons: "My tv screen was broken, meal service was pretty late and drinks were not served before, as a result the lights were only off in the flight for a very brief while."
Cons: "The post office lost my passport and I was unable to go on this flight. Customer service was unwilling to provide a solution that did not cost thousands of dollars to rebook and see my family for Christmas."
Pros: "The plane was clean and fairly comfortable."
Cons: "Our flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for no apparent reason. We were not told of this delay until 45 minutes after boarding time was supposed to begin. Good communication would have helped with this issue."
Cons: "On a 4+ hour flight, I was really surprised that there were no snacks or food included in the ticket; only paid "cafe" options."
Cons: "There was only one snack option and I couldn't eat it because it contained gluten."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Announcement was made at the last minute. There wasn't enough space for carry-on luggage, mostly because the flight crew let people hog space leaving less for everybody else."
Cons: "They mess up on my flight. Had to wait for a good 30mins. They finally found me flight"
Pros: "The crew were effective and efficient. We boarded promptly and departed on time. They were polite and friendly."
Pros: "Easy flight to DC."
Cons: "First time at Pearson Airport needed some help finding my way around the airport"
Pros: "Decent everywhere options, leg room, and seat comfort."
Cons: "Delays with no adequate explanation and very few updates. Boarding process was chaos."
Pros: "The service was fantastic flying over night is never fun but the staff made the plane very comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was very cold"
Pros: "It was on time, and quality service, but actual comfort of flight was not good, landing was very rough and we seemed to circle around Los Angeles for a while before landing. Also, the headphone jack on my screen didn't work so I couldn't movies which was disappointing on a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "I was supposed to be home on a Sunday. That I didn't arrive until the follow Tuesday should tell you something. My adventure included: 2 cancelled flights, one drastically oversold flight, being given a hotel room without a working toilet, hours spent waiting at the airport for information from gate agents who never showed up, and being curtly told that, as a passenger who didn't arrive on a connecting flight, on my second night I would not be given a hotel room, but instead a mat to sleep on in the airport. I did finally get a hotel room—this time with a working toilet"
Cons: "Delays on every leg of our flight. Missed our evening flight to USA and had to spend the night in Canada to fly out the next day. Desk agent service was atrocious!"
Pros: "Once I actually got on the rebooked flight, everything went great."
Cons: "I get it, weather happens, but airlines should have figured out by now how to make any issues that come from that as painless as possible. Air Canada did not have it together. There was little communication and coordination. People had to wait multiple times in ungodly long lines while agents spent way too much time with each customer. There was misinformation and lack of information given by agents and at times no one to help at all. When there's weather it should be all hands on deck until the effected customers get to where they need to be. Otherwise it's an aggravating and nearly intolerable experience. Commercial airlines have been around for 60+ years - figure it out already."
Pros: "Staff was at least friendly"
Cons: "For a 5+ hour flight only beverages were offered - anything else (such as a snack or small meal) had to be purchased. Very cheap service IMO. The selection of entertainment (movies/tv shows) was exceptionally limited and out of date. Their way of boarding the plane (via zone) is very backwards as families with children weren't asked to board until half way through the plane loading (unless those families had already paid for the more expensive zone upgrades). Most airlines let them load first to give them extra time. My checked bag was 1.2kg over the limit so I had to open the bag and switch 1.2kg of clothing into my carry on in front of the rest of those checking in. What an embarrassment and such foolery. All in all Westjet does a better job for trips across Canada. Will not be trying Air Canada again."
Cons: "This was an absolutely terrible flying experience. Our flight from Toronto to Vancouver was delayed by almost 5 hours, which meant I missed my connection to Victoria. Almost no information was given about what to expect about our onward travel connections in Vancouver (most people had connections). I was told that not only would AC book me on an alternate flight, but there would be an agent to meet us with information about baggage, hotel stays, etc. There was no such agent. An agent was only available for folks connecting long-haul to Sydney, Australia, but for no other destinations. I tried to call the airline directly to get information, and kept being told "you will have to speak to someone at the airport". No information was given about where my bags where, whether they would be at the airport or about my connecting flight. I was also told that if I chose to stay in a hotel I would need to pay out of pocket and then seek reimbursement. Unwilling to take the risk of not getting reimbursed, I, like many of my fellow travellers, chose to suck it up and sleep on the floor at the airport. They also failed to tell me that I would need a brand new boarding pass, so after waiting 30m to get through security, I then was sent back to wait another 30m to "check in" yet again and get another boarding pass. This was absolutely one of the worst flying experiences I've had recently, and it utterly frustrates me that AC has a near-monopoly on Canadian air travel. I live in Victoria and will likely go back to what I did in the past, which was take sea travel to Seattle and fly from there just to avoid Air Canada."
Pros: "The pilots were EXTREMELY polite, informing us through the intercom why everything is delayed. SUPER flight through the rain!!! FANTASTIC PILOTS!"
Cons: "We were Stuck INSIDE the plane for an hour. If there is a delay either offer a refreshments or let us go back inside the air port and get a refreshments. The crew were unprofessional, i travel enough and this crew was the worst I have seen. On top they offered No hot beverages. Upon my request of a simple cup Of coffee the flight attendant said, NO, ask if I wanted a coke. It is great that he is giving me an alternative but he can simply appogize that he has not made any coffee and be sincere about it. TERRIBLE service all together. We all in the plane have appointments that now we are late to, crew showed no concern."
Cons: "Delayed flight from Toronto to washington"
Pros: "Flight was only half full. It was a red eye from Halifax to London, so there were several rows with no one in it. That allowed me to move to a row that I could lay down in. Flight attendants were pleasant. Everything was included (ie, food, free checked bags, earphones for TV) Great value for money."
Cons: "I watched WTF on the in seat entertainment system but it was not formatted for that screen, it was too narrow and the sides were cut off so part of the action was not on screen. Pretty minor issue."
Pros: "Nothing about Kayak"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight on Saturday morning to a later flight. After being on hold for 30 minutes, Air Canada said I had to go through Kayak to make changes. I called Kayak and the offices were closed. I had to buy a whole new ticket. I will only use Kayak again out of desperation. Anton Maillie"
Cons: "The flight from Toronto to Washington DC was delayed for more than 3 hours and there was not even a drink offered for the inconvenience."
Pros: "Quick boarding. Great with children."
Cons: "Multiple confusing security processes at airport. Huge lines. Flight delayed twice."
Pros: "The crew and their sincere attitude to be of help. Wonderful team of professionals."
Cons: "One hour delay, which was very tiring for someone who already had gone through the 9 hour flight torture from Athens. The Global Entry for US bound passengers procedure is very confusing. Maybe it would help if the steps were communicated on the US bound passengers before disembarking. First the passport process (easy) then there is this confusing process where we need to see our names in green on the screen, with some staff telling us to move on while others insist that we need to stay back and wait for our names to go green on screens that keep changing. Good idea and intentions to help clear bags, and can be improved. Overall the Montreal to DC flight (with the exception of the awful Montreal airport and the long delay) was excellent."
Cons: "The person behind me kept kicking my seat and yelling at me to not recline my seat. I called a crew member over and asked if I wasn't allowed to and he said well she does have long legs. I paid for economy knowing the room that I was going to be given .. If she didn't like having her legs squished she should have upgraded her seat and the crew member shouldn't have allowed me to be uncomfortable and not having the same luxuries as the rest of the customers."
Pros: "Flights on time and cabin crew pleasant."
Cons: "Where do I begin? I flew round trip SFO to Glasgow via Toronto , a route I do frequently. Usually use British Airways, but tried AC this time. Very unimpressed! Transatlantic portion of journey worse, food and entertainment awful!"
Cons: "Got to Denver 4h Late."
Pros: "Wifi was a bonus (not free, but was good to have, and worked well). Staff was friendly."
Pros: "Wonderful service while on board"
Cons: "Very little space to move for such a long flight."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and attempted to check in at 11:17, 58 minutes before my flight was schedule to depart, having just rushed to the airport from my father's bedside in the hospital. I purchased a ticket on this flight because I absolutely needed to be back in New York City by 2:30 pm today - otherwise, I wouldn't have left. When I attempted to use the kiosk to check in, my booking reference number couldn't be found, despite repeated attempts. When I approached a customer service agent to check in manually, I was simply told that I could not - I was not offered any reason other than that I was "too late" and not offered any alternative. I asked to speak with a supervisor who attempted to clear me for check in seeing as I had no bags to check and have a Global Entry card, but was told by the agent that I spoke with that the flight was over booked and so there were now no longer any seats available. I asked to speak with the supervisor in person, and was told she was on her way, but 15 minutes later she was nowhere to be seen and time was ticking. While the first agent was completely unhelpful, and never offered to rebook me on another flight, another agent helped me by giving me a boarding pass for the next flight and told me she was putting me on standby for the flight I originally purchased the ticket for. I got to the gate in plenty of time to board my original flight, but was told that I wasn't on the standby list and there were simply no seats left on the flight - even though I purchased one which should have been held for me until 10 minutes before departure as is the policy for every other airline as far as I am aware. I am beyond frustrated that due to Air Canada's overbooking the airline used the excuse that I arrived 58 minutes before my flight to give the ticket I purchased away to someone else, with no consideration for me as a customer. The extremely poor customer service I received only added insult to injury. I am completely stumped as to how Air Canada could possibly be the only airline in North America with a 4 star rating when I have consistently experienced overbooking, flight cancellations, and abysmal customer service, including 30 minute wait times to speak to an agent, an inability to check in online for international travel, topped off by poor in flight service, when traveling Air Canada. I have never before complained but am doing so in this case because today's experience truly put me over the top when the airline's blatant disregard for my circumstances and needs as a customer and overbooking practices went beyond causing annoyance and inconvenience. I am therefore requesting a full refund of the ticket I purchased only to be bumped off the flight I paid for."

Cons: "The gate was so far away. And the AC wasn't working in their terminal"
Pros: "Typical intercontinental flight in coach. Plenty of movies to watch, bin space and comfortable enough seats."
Cons: "I have a severe food allergy and despite requesting and confirming my special meal multiple times I was only offered a banana for the entire trip."
Cons: "Gate attendant accused me of trying to get "free extra baggage" when I simply asked whether there would be gate-checking on this particular flight."
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "Audio jack did not work and no one bothered..."
Pros: "Efficiency, punctuality, courteous service"
Cons: "Small aircraft, for the sector."
Pros: "-Blue lighting and head space makes the plane feel more open. -Staff was patient considering the unfair backlash they were getting for the recent abuse of a United passenger. -Seats were well cushioned. -I arrived home to my family alive, unhurt, and safe."
Cons: "-2 hour delay (especially after I arrived 2 hours early) is unacceptable. -Overhead bins too low over our seats. We can't stand up straight at our seats making it very difficulty to get in and out of our seats. -Couldn't access entertainment on my Mac laptop. -Bathroom closets are too small. Floors in the bathroom were consistently wet because the sink is too small for people to wash their hands. -Two bathrooms for the majority of the passengers on the plane is just not enough and you know it. It's pretty uncivilized. It creates a line at the back of the plane covering at least 5 rows. Then, your aisles are too narrow. So we have to rub our bodies up against each other to let people squeeze through. -I think you guys could do better than one tiny bag of pretzel mix for a 5 hour flight. -Let's get upper management flying in economy across the country and see what they would change."
Cons: "We had to check our hand luggage and be charged EUR120.00 We should have been aware of this before we obtained the boarding pass..."
Pros: "On time. Enough space ."
Pros: "Phone charger at every seat"
Cons: "Earphones for movie did not work"
Pros: "Nice crew, on time"
Cons: "Tiny cramped plane"
Cons: "Lack of planning. Even though it was specified that I was travelling with a senior citizen. There was a short time between conecting flights. Having my elderly mother having to rush from one gate to other with no assistance whatsoever. Barely making it to the gate on time and luggage getting lost. Still to this time which is around 24 hours later from the flight, there is no response about her bags. Insulin was on checked luggage. She experiencing serious knee pain due to the fast walk from gate to gate. Fast walk being mention since she is old and can't run. Besides that, flights were good."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "Quick flight, good service"
Cons: "Delay on return flight."
Cons: "Delays no good..."
Pros: "Crew were nice and flight was on time."
Cons: "I didn't know i needed an app before i will be able to enjoy entertainment on board, so i had to pay for internet to be able to download the app to be able to watch movie. PA system wasn't gud."
Pros: "The London based crew: attentive, kind, relaxed, sympathetic and very professional in a relaxed fashion."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the rest adequate. Since all airlines cahoot to have same prices the choice for the passenger is quality and United does not offer a great deal on that subject."
Pros: "There was plenty of room because the flight was less than half full. There was a very friendly and helpful female flight attendant with an Asian ethnic background."
Cons: "It was impossible to check in online because I have a U.S. Green Card. Something should be done to fix this. It shouldn't be too difficult. There was a gray-haired male flight attendant who was extremely negative and unfriendly. Perhaps (I hope) he was really a security guard. But if he is going to serve people, he has to understand the concept of service."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Wasn't offered a snack. Was in the BR whe they were handed out."
Pros: "The services very nice"
Cons: "It's very good service"
Cons: "I think United is improving constently"
Cons: "The plane operated from LV to Washington smelled like urine. Yak! The plane from Washington to Vienna: Food - nothing special. The new touch screan tv's are great to watch but terrible to feel. The person sitting behind me kept hitting buttons for 7 hours, so i didn't get any sleep at all. I was furious!!!! And exhauated. Will not fly with these airlines again nor will reccomend."
Pros: "The crew is kind"
Cons: "UA flights always get delayed and this time I failed to catch my connecting flight to London. I was rescheduled to the flight in the morning of the second day. And when we were heading for London half way, the pilot said some sensors stopped working and we had to come back to Dulles. To be honest, I will never take UA flights anymore, it is just TERRIBLE!"
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like everything. All my United flight were delayed, the international was cancelled after waiting for 7 hours of delays."
Pros: "My other passengers in First Class. Your crew was also very kind and well mannered."
Cons: "I spent over 150 for an upgrade for a red eye for a flight I already spent over 500. Your crew lacked attention in service and one specific crew member (male) woke me up twice due to the loudness of his voice. Disappointed in the quality for the amount spent."
Pros: "The actual flight was great. It was very easy, the movies were new and good. The food was surprisingly good (as I was coming home from Italy). The crew was great and always nice"

Cons: "landing was little jerky and food smell made me nauseated."
Cons: "Luggage compartment too small even for a rolling laptop bag"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, and the snack (caramel-filled waffle cookie) was a nice little treat."

Pros: "Entertainment options were great, and the food was decent."
Cons: "The seat were really uncomfortable."
Pros: "Curtesy of staff"
Cons: "No seat reclining at all. Feeling very stiff by the end of the fight."
Cons: "The plane was so damn HOT inside. Then we sat on the tarmac for 40mins, while being cramped inside with no word from the flight crew, on why we were not taking off. Worst and most uncomfortable flight in years for me and the rest of us suffering passengers on board.... Horrible Horrible Flight"
Cons: "My bags were tagged to Dakar but my final destination was Conakry. I was told my United that South African airlines doesn't have a "luggage contract" with ASky so my bags could not be tagged to my final destination. This is bizarre because Kayak didn't inform me of this when I bought my ticket otherwise I would never have bought that flight."
Cons: "Very rude crew."
Pros: "The staff were excellent ! Great attitudes, great personalities,very informative staff and pilot!!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed!"
Cons: "No snack or entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was on time and crew was pleasant and professional."
Cons: "Snack and drink selection was poor."
Cons: "My 3rd old was very hungry and I reached out to cabin staff for any kind of food for purchase, they turned me down saying I need to wait for another hour till the dinner time. Did not provide any help there."
Pros: "The plane was exceptionally nice,"
Cons: "Although I purchased my ticket more than four months prior, due to some complication or miscommunication between SAS and US Air, my seat had been filled and someone had to be "bought off the plane" with a voucher and better seat. If someone wouldn't have taken the offer, I would have missed all of my flight waiting on a new connection."
Cons: "everything else"
Pros: "The seat itself was comfortable but the leg room for my taller companion was a bit tight."
Cons: "It was a 5 hour flight and on the outgoing flight not even a snack was offered. On the return flight a very small bag of spicy pretzel bits was offered. When I went to get on the return flight I had a small sling purse, a small yarn bag (both hung on the same arm) and a bag of food for the lunch they wouldn't serve me. I was told I couldn't get on the flight with 3 bags, even though all 3 would fit under the seat. The free entertainment contained a grey box over part of the image reminding I could pay for more. Was only given a tiny glass of soda, I remember when they would give a can. I will consider another airline in the future."
Pros: "First overseas flight to Europe. Very impressed with everything with the flight. Comfortable, great crew, great food. Thank you!"
