Cons: "Boarding processs"
Pros: "It was easy to check in at the counter and online. Staff was friendly and responsive. Ease of navigation from country to country with plenty of visible staff available to answer questions."
Cons: "The long layover was a bit taxing. It would be better to cut these down in case of changes in weather condition"
Cons: "It was my sister's first flight ever. She was late to the airport (LA traffic) and then treated absolutely horribly by the agents at the desk. She ended up missing the entire trip on account of these heartless agents who refused to honor the "flat tire rule.""
Cons: "Cabin too warm. Service too basic"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and all the check in and boarding process was very organized"
Cons: "I was very hungry the whole flight. Very little food for six hours."
Pros: "The airline gives a good service to travel, always on time that's really good, but their staff don't have a good costumer service, food and entertainment is pretty good!!!"

Pros: "Friendly staff, free checked baggage, beverage service."
TsA was fast and efficient. Boarding was effortless, fast. Having a new and clean plane only amplified the experience
Crew was super helpful storing my bag, seating people, etc And now they’ve started thanking their Delta frequent flyer members !! Two crew came to find me and thanked me by name
Cons: "Seat could have been more comfortable"
Pros: "great everything!"
Pros: "That it got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The crew, the food, the tv capability, the amenities. Overall it was the worst international flight I have ever been on. They confiscated my unopened beer I purchased after security point. They had me assigned to a wrong seat, so I had to fight my way 20 rows up as people are filing into their seats. The hot towel to clean your hands was dry and cold. The roll was hard as a rock and cold. The crew was rude and unapproachable. It took almost 3 hours to get them to reset my tv and when she finally did it glitched the whole time I tried watching it. The croissant was literally cooked to the paper and had to rip apart Croissant to get the paper off. They didn't serve the cocktail as promised. It was a pretty poor performance on all levels, and if this survey truly means anything, I hope this gets remedied."
Pros: "It was all good glad the last leg of the trip was pleasant."
Pros: "Airplane accelerated from stand-by directly to runway without preparation stop. Awesome!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No leg room for 6’6” person."
Cons: "Small plane, feels cramped"
Cons: "The unfortunate delay prevented me from attending my grandmother’s wake. Fewer delays would be helpful."
Pros: "The crew did their best to deal with delay."
Cons: "There was an absolutely awful job done by both Delta and Kayak of informing us if additional delays, new gate assignments, when the plane would be reboarded. Also, people were quite angry that the plane had to be cleaned between the time we got off and the time we reboarded. Just get us home."
Pros: "The fight was very professionally carried out."
Cons: "The gate agent hurried ineffectively to board our slightly delayed flight (around 10 min). She left open the Priority Lane and boarded all pax there, having to step 4 steps to the left to scan every boarding pass."
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Pros: "The crew and the comfort plus seat"
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Flight left on time"
Cons: "Gate crew had trouble identyfing boarding pass on their computer. Difficulty getting on plane"
Pros: "Fast boarding, friendly crew, and comfy seats"
Cons: "It was pretty bumpy and a few times we changed altitude very quickly"

Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant spoke like a robot. Could not understand her."
Pros: "Staff, service, options"
Pros: "As usual great staff and awesome entertainment/connectivity"
Cons: "Due to weather & maintenance flight was delayed for IFR release & fuel temperature gauge issues. Staff was very helpful. Would have appreciated a drink voucher. Some unprofessional passengers took their frustrations out on the flight attendants."
Cons: "Over an hour delay before boarding due to supposedly bad weather. Because flight was overbooked they were offering $400 gift card to change to standby on another flight. If you didn’t make that flight (evening), you’d be confirmed on a flight the following morning with one stop in Detroit (we booked a nonstop to Chicago). Uh, no thanks. Then to top it off, we’ve landed and been told that it will be at least an hour before we can deplane due to no availability at the gate (it’s 1145 pm right now). All this plus their new policy of not allowing us to select our seats because we bought the cheapest tickets. Really Delta? You go ahead and cater to the rich and I’ll choose to fly with another airline."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Middle seat with no option for me to move"
Cons: "Break downs again... At least this time they found another plane."
Pros: "Friendly service, comfortable seat, on time, no issues."
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable seating"
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarded quickly with no fuss."
Pros: "Flt on time, very nice and friendly gate agent and flight attendant"
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "We were traveling with a toddler and infant but put in different row because the tickets were purchased separately. Gate staff promptly put us together and even bumped us up to delta comfort. Was a very pleasant trip. Thanks delta!"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "Accident on way to airport, so I showed up to check bags 45 minutes before flight time. They said they couldn't get the bag to the plane..in 45 minutes? So, they put on the next flight... 6 hours later. Said I could fly without the bag... uh, no thanks. They would not look for alternatives without charging me more. Flight attendants were crabby, otherwise everything was fine. I flew British Airways a few months ago. Night and day. Seriously. Delta does not even approach having good service. There was no comparison to British Air--- Delta is not in the same league."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Pros: "What I liked: Sky Priority privilege came with separate luggage check-in queues and early boarding"
Cons: "What I disliked: Seats were too small No beverages or snacks offered No USB or power outlets available Three different groups board before Delta Comfort (e.g. those needing more time, travelers with children, first/business class) Didn't see the value compared to a less expensive main cabin ticket"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Pros: "Great short trip with an attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats were a bit uncofortable and small compared to previous flights."
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Cons: "The flight attendant looked like she was mad throughout the whole flight"
Pros: "We were delayed due to weather and Delta brought a cart of snacks and drinks over to the gate for us."
Pros: "Everything went well"
Cons: "I was late from first flight"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes for No Reason"
Cons: "Were to plug a charger, pillows, tv screens"
Pros: "Crew did a great job."
Cons: "No entertainment. Copa app did not work on my phone."
Pros: "Crew were present"
Cons: "Poor entertainment, terrible food not very comfortable seats... older airplane."
Pros: "Great customer service at check-in, gate and wonderful crew! The flight attendants were some of the best I've had on any airline."
Cons: "We were seated in the back row and the seats did not recline. What made that even worse, is they are COMPLETELY upright. I mean you are sitting at nearly a 90 degree angle! The other rows un-reclined had more recline than the last row. This was an older 737 and those seats never should have been installed on that plane. Luckily, there were a few empty seats and we were able to move, although not together. 3 of our 4 flights were on newer planes, and on one other flight we were also seated in the back row. But, those seats reclined and were as comfortable as any other seat on the plane. COPA, if you're reading this, kudos to your great operation, but do NOT use that horrible old 737 on such a long flight. Or, only use those seats for standbys!"
Pros: "Business seats good Food good Well taken care of."
Cons: "Seat is uncomfortable and food is terrible."
Pros: "Land crew at BA."
Cons: "Onboard service (Food, entertainment and comfort)."
Pros: "the only plus was that the plane had TVs and blankets, and a meal. otherwise, not much"
Cons: "Everything... not a good experience overall. We were significatnly delayed for no reason. poor communication, rude staff and no wifi. seats very uncomfortable..."
Cons: "Few new Entertainment options."
Cons: "Too warm in cabin. Someone was sitting in my seat 7D and actually began to negotiate w me to sit somewhere else."
Pros: "It got me back to Chicago."
Cons: "It was so uncomfortable - the seats were horrible and the temperature on the plane was way too hot the entire flight."
Pros: "Boarding was organized, the crew and food/refreshment services were great. I prefer Copa over others because of this. Last time I traveled to South America was 6 years ago and the quality is still great."
Cons: "Seating cushioning was a bit uncomfortable, which is a bit difficult during a long flight."
Pros: "Boarding was in Spanish - thankfully I recognized the number of our boarding group. Everything was average - what you’d expect on a normal flight. But for breakfast, one of the options was eggs. I expected something barely edible, but it was actually really tasty!"
Cons: "Boarding was all in Spanish. I recognized our group number though, so figured it out, but it’s always nice when it’s repeated in English."
Cons: "En el check in lo hice por la web y liego tarde mas q la gente q no lo hizo xq atendian a todos mezclados"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Pleasant crew. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Food very basic. Small aircraft (737)."
Pros: "Great flight. Decent sized seat. Friendly crew"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the process was standard"
Cons: "For some reason both my friends and I felt it was a very uncomfortable flight"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Plane too full. Again, without the individual screens, you didn't have a choice on what to watch on a very very long flight"
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was flawless. Pleasant staff & comfortable seats... LOVED the free movies, audio selection, food, beverages, etc."
Cons: "1. would not allow duty-free purchases with under 60 minute boarding time. 2. required TSA check & disposal of all beverages before entering the area to wait for the plane - a 30 minute wait in the hallway!"
Pros: "The seat had extra leg room, BUT..."
Cons: "The seat's cushion was pulled out from the backrest, making it a very uncomfortable seat & giving me Backpain. (This was the seat next to the window, not the middle seat.)"
Pros: "I like the fact the there was a entertainment system for each passenger."
Cons: "I didnt like that the airplane was small for a international flight, also didnt like that the aircraft did not have wifi."
Pros: "Nice crew and we left on time"
Cons: "No legroom whatsoever nice crew and we left on time"
Pros: "Excellent service and room to stretch"
Cons: "We were late due to waiting for a crew member to arrive"
Pros: "All the services at the plane were very good"
Cons: "The order at the boarding in Istanbul and in Panama, were poir, with no preference for freq flyers"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Copa has a reputation for being the on-time airline in Central America, and so it was for all 5 of my flights with them this trip. Customer service on the phone was really great, too. They got things done, and done the first time."
Cons: "The in-flight TV screens are old-school and not very good."
Pros: "I got upgraded to first class. Awesome experience"
Cons: "I asked for the temp to be adjusted, but wasn't able to get them to fix much. It was easily 80 degrees."
Cons: "We did not have the little TVs"
Cons: "I went through security at Lima Peru (Jorge Chavez International), everything was fine. I arrived to Panama, and the gate was next door which is just great awesome. The bad part was that I had to go through a security check once again there, although I had not left the airport since I left Lima. I went through the exercise, I was told that there would be no liquids (8 oz bottle of water, soda, etc) allowed passed that check point. Yet they were selling these items next to the gate. It made no sense why this checkpoint and why the liquid restrictions. Once in the area if I wanted to go use the restroom or whatever I needed to go through the checkpoint. There were 6 Copa employees manning this station, that's extra expense that the company passes on to the flyer for a step that should be evaluated and look at to see why other airlines do not do this. I was not the only one getting frustrated with this setup, but also passengers that did not speak Spanish they could not communicate with Copa employees. I saw this liquid restriction with Spirit Airlines in Lima, and I decided not to fly with them any more, no matter how inexpensive their fares were. Spirit told us that it was US law that made them have people throw away their drinks, although they were bought in a secured area. To me this was just a way to charge for drinks on the plane. I never had to throw away my drink if I had bought it in a secured area."
Pros: "On time departure from the gate."
Cons: "To board the plane in Panama City passengers had to go through a second security screening and were therefore unable to bring bottled beverages onto the plane. Once through this second security there was no where to purchase water. The free never came through the plane to offer more beverages after the meal service. Many passengers got up and corralled at the back of the plane to get water. I watched a flight attendant drink from one the large bottles herself and then presumably serve to a customer."
Pros: "This announcement by the pilot at the beginning of the flight turned out to be incorrect. Despite the fact that I did online check-in at least 23 hours in advance, I was seated way at the rear of the jet. As a single woman who looks unusual because half of my hair is shorter due to recent surgery; I sincerely hope I was not seated at the back due to my appearance. The other passenger seated with me was a very kind developmentally disabled young man. The placement in row 33 +/- only emphasized the many instances of turbulence on the flight to Chicago."
Cons: "The many occasions of turbulence on this flight."
Cons: "Why would you put a cartoon on to watch??"
Cons: "My complaint is with the Panama TSA!! Why do you have 2nd security check at the gate before boarding? They were rude, didn't speak English (or played like they didn't) and their just throwing your possessions around in front of everyone!! Just stupid!!"
Pros: "Loved the check in. No baggage expense. Up to two bags FREE! Then, we had a meal --that was included in the fare. The crew was pleasant and accommodating. Everyone was pleasant. To pass the time on the 5 1/2 hour flight, there were options for movies, TV, games and etc. Overall, it was a pleasant flight. When I book my next trip, I'm going to see if Copa goes there. If so, that's my first choice."
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."
Cons: "The headset didn't work well."
Pros: "Nothing. Everything was a bad costumer service."
Cons: "I missed my flight because in the town I live , there was a landslide and rocks fall on the road. And it was impossible to get out of the town and I didn't find any help for refunding or changing the dates of my flight. Really bad costumer service, I'm still waiting for a reply of the emails I sent to vayama. Imposible to comunicar with it by phone with them and with the kayak office in Colombia."
Pros: "The crew were nice and they had good meal servir."
Cons: "We were in the last row which wasn't comfortable. The flight departed late, arrived late, and it took almost an hour for the bags to come out. The entertainment was also very poor."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "All of my grievances regard the Panama staff at the airport and on the plane, the staff and services at O'Hare were top notch. Customs was extremely fast and efficient and everyone was friendly and did their jobs well. As far as the Panama airlines go, the food was okay, nothing special but not disgusting, and not all the flight attendants were unpleasant."
Cons: "The worst thing that happened was mean spirited security guards at the airport did a security check before allowing us to get to our gate. They forced us to dispose of a bottle of water that we had bought at that very airport. We were then quarantined into a waiting area with no seating and no access to other water, bathroom or food. Then on the plan we were offered beverages twice, so I was only able to get about six swallows of water from Panama to Chicago. Dehydration makes a plane ride a lot less healthy and comfortable. The staff was mostly unpleasant, the seats were really small and uncomfortable (more so than any other airplanes I've been aboard), and for some reasons they kept turning the main lights on and off, allowing us to sleep and then waking us all up for no good reason. Unbelievable."
Cons: "Business class lounge in Panama was terrible. Over crowded, noisy, poor and inadequate food and drink, only tiny, underfilled, tasteless sandwiches and dry crackers. Inferior to any other lounge I have been in. On the plane, the food was dry and tasteless for the most part."
Cons: "Being an international flight of 5+ hours long, they only transmitted 1 movie."
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
Pros: "Amazing crew. Speedy boarding even having to board a bus to the airplane."
Cons: "Mini sandwiches could be served."
Cons: "Little late boarding and leaving. No explanation"
Cons: "No problems during the flight"
Pros: "THE WAY THE PLANE IS LOADED WITH SEATS IN BACK LOADED FIRST AND FRONT SEATS LOADED LAST SO DON'T HAVE TO FIGHT THROUGH ALL THE PASSENGERS BLOCKING FRONT AREA"
Cons: "FOOD IS MOST TASTELESS OF ANY AIRLINE FOOD WE'VE EVER HAD ON THE MANY AIRLINES WE'VE BEEN ON AROUND THE WORLD"
Pros: "Friendly staff clean cabin"
Cons: "Not much"
Cons: "Menos tiempo en las escalas"
Pros: "Food was good and healthy."
Cons: "Online entertainment didn't work. Crew was rude and unhelpful."
Cons: "Paid extra to upgrade. Then never saw the flight crew during the flight. And they provided no drink or snack service. Instead they all huddled at the front of the plane and talked with each other. Disappointing to say the least."
Pros: "all except the food"
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "La temperatura interna dentro del avión era muy baja. Ni siquiera tenían una manta en todo el avión, la azafata intentó buscar una y dijo que NO tenía. El resfrío es camino por ese motivo. Y la comida era un pedazo de pan con algún tipo de fiambre dentro , sin gusto y pura Harina."
Pros: "Flight staff, food, seating, Personnal space, restrooms were clean, landing was smooth"
Cons: "Checking in at the counter and boarding the aircraft can use some polishing. The boarding process is confusing due to lack of communication to customers and faulty speaker/PA systems at LATAM gates."
Pros: "The flight left and arrived on time, which is always nice."
Cons: "the seat was a little old and the cabin was a little smelly but was okay when the AC was turned on."
Pros: "Food great"
Cons: "Everything exelente"
Pros: "Service is better . Has improve a lot"
Pros: "It was my first time flying with LATAM and I loved it! The planes are amazing, such a great taste for everything. Delicious food! Everyone was so nice and helpful! Very attentive and polite. Definitely will be looking forward to travel with then again!"
Cons: "The pilot arrived 1.5 hours late and my bag was out on another flight, further delaying me. Terrible."
Pros: "Nice crew. Comfort ok."
Cons: "They herre delade."
Cons: "Plane was a Dreamliner"
Pros: "There entire experience was 1st rate. I've flown to Europe with various international flight companies and LATAM has equaled such but what put it above others was the personal attention when I had a problem with luggage. In Lima, Peru there was a connection and an attendant named Sebastian went the extra mile contacting luggage handlers with his cell phone to ensure my bag was recovered and waiting at the gate of my connecting flight en route to Buenos Aires. A special thanks goes to Sebastian. Thank you Brother."
Pros: "The planes were modern and up to date. Good food and friendly service"
Cons: "I loved it all!"
Pros: "There was nothing special"
Cons: "Staff attitude food"
Pros: "Entertainment is ware out, headphones jacks don't work well."
Cons: "Headphones jacks Food can be better and warmer"
Pros: "El personal abordo fantastico El sistema de entreteimiento muy bueno La comida buena"
Cons: "El espacio entre asientos....terrible, una verdadera lata de sardinas."
Cons: "First of all I bought my ticket through Kayak, but apparently something called the flight network was the issuer of my ticket apparently they are and travel agency in canada , first i needed to change my ticket and they could not do it , then I dis not use my outbound flight because I needed to get to my destinantion one day earlier and yesterday i received an email saying that my return flight was cancelled. they told me that since i did not use my outbound they automatically cancelled my return flight, I ended up loosing 300 USD because of mis information from that travel agency , the people that answered my call were very disrispectfull, this has been the worse experience and ai ended up loosing all my money I had to purchase another return ticket."
Cons: "Tight space between seats"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable."
Cons: "The crew boarding the passengers did not seem to know what they were doing. I waited in line for over 30 minutes, which at 1 am in the morning was tough. I had my boarding pass reviewed by 3 different attendants. They did a cursory inspection of my backpack by opening 2 of the 15 pockets."
Cons: "Food was rubbish!"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed and there were no meteorological problems, I finally arrived in LAX more than 2.5 hours late"
Pros: "They took every measure to make sure me and my family had the most comfortable flight possible. I will be sure to fly LatAm again. Thank you so much!"
Cons: "Could not select my seat"
Cons: "Everything. We booked flights a half year in advance yet they forced a couple of us to upgrade to premium in order to get seats. They then separated one of the couples with premium seating without notice so some other couple could sit next to each other. Their website didn't allow us to use an electronic boarding pass. Its cumbersome and uninformative. Some of the attendants are incredibly rude."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lástima connecting fligh was a little bit tight but every things worked"
Cons: "TAM is extremely unreliable and will never leave on time. LAN was actually very nice, but their sister TAM is by far the worst I've ever taken. I will be very clear next time when booking in South America to not take TAM again. We were delayed by 2hours for no apparent reason."
Cons: "Leg room nonexistent."
Cons: "Terrible boarding experience. Plane was delayed 2 hours with no explaination. Plane was a bit dirty and old. Will not fly again if I can help it."
Pros: "The best business class seating we've encountered ... tons of leg room, side by side seating arrangements. I peeped into economy and that's not too bad neither. The seats were 3 sets of 3 seats per row. Most other planes would have at least 10 seats across."
Cons: "The crew was not very attentive. A group of them always chit chatting in the kitchen area. Food was very mediocre in business class, can't imagine what it's like in economy."
Cons: "There was a LAN strike at airport. No manager from LAN, nor airport came forth for over 2 hours to talk w/ passengers. 8 a.m. flight left at 2 p.m. No apologies given."
Cons: "24 hour delay, second flight returning delayed AGAIN, lost all my luggage and was never returned."
Pros: "The entertainment was good for such a flight. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Food was very basic; neds to be improved cosnideing it is international."
Pros: "The flight crew were pleasant and tried to help."
Cons: "The food was horrible, options were limited, seemed like no special meal options easily reserved."
Pros: "The service was good and the crew was very kind."
Another delayed flight on American. Another missed connection. No gate when we finally landed, sat on the plane for over 30 minutes and we all missed our connecting flights.
Disappointed in the toilet area both flights- filthy and urine on floor everywhere both flights Boarding and texts communications excellent
Flight attendant for first class is definitely not a morning person. Oh and the WiFi DID NOT WORK!
The flight was delayed for five hours due to airplane issues.
Entertainment was very plentiful, staff were courteous. Seating was HORRIBLE. That is the most cramped I’ve ever been on any flight …Jet Blue and Spirit included. Very uncomfortable for a six hour trip.
The entertainment box wasn’t working. The food was mediocre. The fruit was warm. The tiny salad was good. The champagne wasn’t cold. I really expected more from First Class.
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.
The plane had mechanical issues which caused the flight to be delayed over an hour, which would cause me to miss my connection. I was unable to take this flight so I had to wait 4 1/2 hours for the next available flight to Dallas. I will try to avoid connecting through Chicago or Charlotte since there are limited flights through those cities. American did change my flight for no charge.
The boarding process went very quickly, faster than I’ve ever seen boarding occur. I understand the need for efficiency, but the groups were called so quickly that there was a lot of chaos at the gate and people running through the airport. Then we all sat on the plane for a while, which seemed silly.
…sat in a window seat with a window that was either dirty or fogged over and couldn’t see out. …the flight was delayed and late for unspecified reasons.
Pros: "empty plane"
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a missing officer. Because of this, I missed my flight from Chicago to Narita Japan. I had to cancel the hotel in Japan and pay $120 cancellation fee. The customer service changed my flight to go to Dallas/Fort Worth TX then fly to Narita Japan next day. They gave me vouchers for hotel stay and meal ($12) which are absolutely minimal compensation after all this headaches. They were unable to upgrade my seat since they’re full. Now the flight to Narita is 2 hour delay and they have changed the gate at least twice. I’m worried if I can get on the next connecting flight to Sapporo due to this delayed schedule. I feel like this whole trip is ruined because the delayed flight from Philadelphia to Chicago. This has been my worst and the most ridiculous flight experience ever. I don’t think I ever want to fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic"
Cons: "Well my flight got delayed four separate times. I was stuck in LAX for 3 hours. So much that booked another flight with another airline for the following morning. I had to book a hotel nearby LAX just so I could somewhere to sleep for the night. My luggage made it to Chicago safely, but I didn’t at least not with American Airlines. It took them an hour to tell us that they reassigned the pilot to another flight, not only that when it was delayed the first initial time (40 minute delay) about ten minutes before we were supposed to board they tell us that the flight attendant crew is going to take 30 minutes to get to the gate. Not only but those poor airline service staff were completely unaware of all these changes! They had to find out from the passengers what was going on. Honestly I will never fly with American Airlines ever again!!!"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Cons: "American Airlines has terrible customer service. We were unable to board our flight at the Philadelphia airport because when we arrived (almost 2 hours before our flight) the ticket counter was already closed for the evening. No one from American Airlines could help us. We were left stranded at the ticket counter until it reopened at 3:15 am. We are very disappointed and disgusted with the poor service we received from American Airlines. After hearing multiple horror stories from others, it is safe to say we will never fly that airline again."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Pros: "Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!"
Cons: "Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!"
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "How fast they had us in the air (5 min early)."
Cons: "In their rush to leave, they didn't communicate with the on board crew about overhead bins and I was forced to check a priceless item that I purposely wanted with me in the cabin. The overheads were empty above my own seat. I wasn't allowed to go back and reclaim my bag because they had already taken it. And they were completely indifferent to my situation, which isn't surprising given they didn't understand the value of my item. Thus, I had a full blown panic attack for my entire 2 hour flight, my medicine being one of the items also in my now checked bag. It was too late, my bag was taken and thrown under the plane by the time it struck. And the flight attendants also had on perfume that brought on a tension headache due to my sensitivity to scents. Considering they work in a recycled air tube, this seems like a vast oversight on their part and should consider that not everyone can handle even the faintest of perfumes. It may not seem like a big deal to them, because mental illness is still seen as a made up thing, but it was enough of a trigger that I will not fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "WiFi not working"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Cons: "My wife needed a wheelchair at arrival at ORD. Although 5 people needed wheelchairs only 2 were available! Then no one from Prospect was there to push them. We were at the farthest International Airport gate M20. After 10 minutes one "pusher" arrived and moved my wife to the bottom of the ramp, approximately 100 feet and left her sitting in the corridor unattended. Although I had 2 Rolla boards I had to push her the full distance to Immigration and Customs. Our bags were sitting on a stationary baggage conveyor, the last from our American Airline flight. It wasn't until we're were ready to leave Customs that 4 people from "Prospect" asked if they could help, saying that they were SORRY!! They had just been standing around. A year ago I had the exact same thing happen to me from gate M1 and my wife had to push me the full distance. BTW, I 'm 71 and my wife is 68."
Pros: "We boarded on time and we departed on time. We got into Chicago 30 minutes early. We recently acquired a AA credit card and we got 2 checked bags free and priority boarding (Group 5). In today's world your need priority boarding of some sort on AA or you risk not being able to store you bags in the overhead and may have to get it checked free to your final destination. Also, one of our checked bags had a painting in it that we purchased and the bag and painting arrived unharmed. Good job by AA baggage handlers."
Cons: "Cramped seating. Airlines seem to be moving seats closer together to be able to hold more passengers."
Pros: "The flight was quite emty and instead of packing everyone in the same area, we all had a row for ourselves which was very enjoyable. Flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The interview by a British Airway agent before the flight. I have been to the USA many times and I totally understand this type of interview, but the agent was aggressive, asking questions that were totally irrelevant. She did not even care about why I was going to the USA or where I was staying. Se was rude and I was really unpleased by her attitude saying it was British Airways way off doing interviews. Again I have had many interviews before flying to the USA, never been a bad exerience before"
Pros: "Seats were overall comfortable, food was adequate, flight attendants where nice, and great selection of movies."
Cons: "We weren't able to choose seats at time of booking and AA gave my fiancee and I seats on different parts of the plane; AA employee suggested we ask other passengers to switch with us, which is not convenient or preferable--it shouldn't be difficult to put 2 people next to each other on such a large plane; almost 3 hour delay made a really long flight (over 10 hours) even longer causing us to miss our connecting flight; boarding passes where reissued but we had to pay extra baggage fees since AA transferred to a different airline and didn't provide vouchers or other ways to cover baggage fees which where originally covered by the ticket; new boarding passes didn't include our TSA precheck status which was on our original boarding passes, so would have had to go back to ticket counter to get boarding passes reissued or go through regular security line--both inconvenient and time consuming-- would be nice if AA paid more attention o these details"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "Staff was courteous. Plane was clean."
Cons: "It was a very grueling trip. Plane left Rome at 9:15a but that meant getting there at 7:15a. Plane was kept dark even though it was daylight outside. Staff was courteous but did not particularly demonstrate awareness of the strain on the travelers being cramped for 10+ hours. Plane was so cramped that one could not take a stretch walk down the aisles to alleviate muscle cramp being in same position for 10 hours. My ultimate destination was San Jose, CA, but that entailed a wait at O'Hare from 12:30p to 8p. Again, staff uninterested in traveler comfort in these parameters. American felt okay to delay my last leg from Chicago to San Jose an hour later than original scheduled, but offered no compensation for the addition to my discomfort. The switch from British Airways to American was a surprise. New flight numbers, change increased my travel stress. I am only 5'3" and not obese, yet could not really fit in my seat: kept getting bumped by passers by in aisle. Airline uninterested in passenger comfort."
Pros: "The complementary wine was nice. The raspberry sponge cake was nice. Nice options for entertainment."
Cons: "No one in the entire airport knew what flight I was talking about when I told them it was Iberia + flight number. People were saying I must have the wrong airport. I almost missed my flight because of this. Everything was through American airlines. It would have been nice to know this going in. Also it was tough doing transfers because once again, none of the departure screens refer to "Iberia flights." It was also tough to check-in. Instructions were not clear in terms of the booking number to use. The Iberia app had a lot of usability problems. The seats are too cramped. I'd have to take out a loan to be able to afford business class or 1st class. It's absolutely horrible for everyone in coach. Especially for long flights as this one. The food was subpar, but that is to be expected in my opinion. Would have been nice to offer complementary headphones. I wasn't able to utilize the entertainment because my headphones are blue tooth. Upon arrival, we had to sit on the tarmac for 20 minutes because there was another airplane in our spot."
Cons: "Check in staff was unprepared for volume of people. When asking an American Airlines agent if I could use the priority check in because I had priority seating I was told no. I was informed by a customer going that way that I indeed could. When I got in line for the priority check in, the agent looked over and very loudly said that I was in the wrong check in area. Given the volume at which it was said to me I felt embarrassed, and was upset at the fact that I then had to respond that I indeed was in the correct location."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."
Pros: "The gentlemen from the wheelchair service who was there to pick us up when we arrived in Heathrow went above and beyond his duties. Instead of passing us over to another wheelchair attendant as we needed to switch terminals, he stayed with us thru the terminal change until we were on the airplane. We needed to get our boarding passes at Heathrow from a different airline and he helped us with this. Kudos to him!! The attendants on this flight were very helpful when my husband was having a diabetic reaction and I was vomiting form air motion sickness. We were a mess!! However the flight attendants were sure we had a wheelchair in Chicago and helped us with our bags as we were exiting the plane. Nice Job"
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"
Pros: "•Boarding was easy - small plane. •No crazy flight maneuvers, so I guess good pilots"
Cons: "•Cash only for drinks?! C'mon AA, it's 2017. •Charging for checked bags is greedy, I don't care if others do it, that's not a good excuse + Southwest doesn't charge. •Plane left 30 min late (and arrived 30 late), then had to sit on Tarmac waiting for a gate. •Placed us at the farthest bagged claim from our arrival gate (all bagge claims walking up to ours were empty), so thanks for thinking of the customer first there. •I reserved an aisle seat, they changed me to window without asking. Thanks. •Overall, there are too many other choices in airlines... I may just be one customer, but this is one less they'll have, as other major carriers haven't ever racked up this amount of annoyances in a single trip with me before."
Pros: "Boarding was a mess - there were no announcements about boarding and the gate agent did nothing to promote order in the gate area. Thank goodness for the new planes on this route - the old planes with the blue "leather" seats were so overdue to be retired. Onboard entertainment was great and every seat had a USB port and AC outlet. Smoothest landing ever, I couldn't even tell when the wheels hit the pavement! It was also the first time I recall a female captain on American - maybe the smooth landing wasn't such a coincidence :)"
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "While boarding the plane an AA employee actually grabbed the 1/4 full gym bag out of my boyfriend's hands and said he had to check it (even though it had fit under his seat next to his backpack on our previous American Airlines flight). Boarded and saw there was still plenty of open overhead bin space. Had to wait 30 extra minutes at our destination to claim his unnecessarily checked bag. This is on top of poor customer service from the gate agents and a long delay on our outbound flight. Will not choose to fly American Airlines in the future"
Pros: "The movie selection and how often we were given beverages."
Cons: "I was selected for a random inspection. I was pulled aside and went through a separate check in process. I completed everything I was instructed to do and as I'm boarding, I'm pulled aside and told I needed to go back to pre clearance because someone forgot to punch a hole in my boarding pass. The stewardess and j had to run all the way back to security so I could go through the whole process again. I delayed the flight and everyone was upset. It was completely unnecessary. Simply because one employee didn't do their job, I delayed a transatlantic flight to Chicago. Best part, I arrived at the airport four hours before my flight. Also, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. And I was separated from my traveling companion for this entire process. Had I missed the flight, she would never have known."
