I wouldn't say I liked being forced to check my small roller bag at the gate; too many people had bags and were in a higher boarding group.
It was delayed and I missed my connection to BHX
Pros: "Seating is better than most other airlines. In seat entertainment option, bring headphones. Accommodating crew. Beverage and snacks provided at no cost."
Pros: "Precautions taken appropriate"
Cons: "Environmental controls, it was a little warm. Seats seemed more uncomfortable than usual. Air vents, lights, too far from aisle seats."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."
Cons: "Flight was freezing. Crew was overly concerned about my tree nut allergy. Been flying for 40+ years and this was the first time any one has asked...appreciate it but they went overboard"
Pros: "The guy working the terminal was very helpful."
Cons: "There was some grouchy lady working the terminal and she put a damper on everyone mood. Could put my seats together without me paying an up charge."
Pros: "Comfort, efficiency and entertainment were great."
Cons: "Crew was a little sassy and sour. Maybe one gal was in a happy mood."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and had great personality. They anticipated any needs we had."
Pros: "When my initial flight was delayed significantly, the gate agents went above and beyond to help me get on an earlier flight so I didn't get home too late."
Pros: "Crews were helpful. Seats are comfortable enough."
Cons: "Foods could have been better. But, all airlines foods are pretty bad."
Pros: "Boarding & disembarking were super efficient, captain was very communicative, plane cabin was clean"
Cons: "The flight attendants were competent, but not friendly at all on my first flight or connecting flight."
Cons: "Make sure the customers have the right gate in the boarding pass, I almost missed the plane because of that thanks to a Copa'employee who gave me the wrong gate"
Pros: "It was an old plane, no WiFi!!! There is was an hour and half delay which no one made it clear as to why ."
Cons: "the manager at the counter at IAD insisted make the connection in Panama City! Of course after landing in Panama City I missed the connection. Had to stay at a hotel and I purchased business class ticket but they don’t have business class seats available on the next flight and book me on economy"
Pros: "Boarding process, inflight service"
Cons: "Flight was canceled, was booked on flight 812, that flight was also canceled. I didn’t get to Quito until 24 hours later. Customer service was terrible in terms of providing accurate information to passengers."
Cons: "When the flight was delayed, we would’ve like to have a better explanation of what was happening"
Cons: "Air flight attendant was rude and Had an attitude with some passengers"
Pros: "Crew was very helpful and accomodating."
Cons: "Not sure if that was an older plane or what, have travelled with COPA lots of time before, but this time around the chairs were specially uncomfortable (didn’t even reclined) only worse chair i’ve seated on a plane has beeb on spirit (which is a bargain airline, so unlike copa)"
Cons: "Need more attention to details like order to boarding and entertainment"
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the hot meals were a treat!!"
Avianca is the worst most uncomfortable airline I've ever been in, the seats are incredibly small and offer no support, the worst experience I've had traveling ever, do not bother with Avianca
Cons: "The food was really out of the Avianca standard. The quinoa “salad” was frozen. I asked the flight attendant and he told me it was supposed to be room temperature, but it was crystallized. Understand it was Ash Wednesday and no meat was serve (cheese quiche was ok)."
Pros: "Took 3 planes so had 3 different experiences. Leg 1 and 3 were average. Basic no frill flights and average meal. Leg 2 was superior. More modern plane, choice of entertainment. Crew on all flights were great."
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "I liked the food and the service from the crew."
Cons: "Entertainment screen and updated aircraft. Bogota to San Salvador flight was short and provided many inflight entertainment options and more comfortable seating ( leg room ). A this 6 hour flight was the opposite and extremely uncomfortable to be using an outdated aircraft for a long flight. I should have flown direct into LAX."
Cons: "I arribes at the airport 1 he before the original flight time because the flight was delayed 50 minutes. Counter told me I couldn't check in my luggage anymore. Avianca was using any possible excuse to give seats to stand by passengers from other flights. There were very long lines of stand by people at the Avianca area."
Pros: "Entertainment makes flight go faster. Many choices"
Cons: "the Food (. Snack) not the best choice of ham empanada and rice chips plus something else I didn’t even tried."
Pros: "Free alcohol"
Cons: "They overbooked the flight after I called to verify this didn't happen. The night crew in LAX (11/22) were rude, unhelpful and bad people. If I were a manager I would have fired everyone. I will never use Avianca again"
Pros: "The attention of the staff and punctuality at the departures"
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Rude check in employees, mediocre flight crew terrible food. Only good thing about the flight was the check in counter people at Asunción airport. The rest was so bad, will never flight with Avianca ever again."

Cons: "Food was disgusting. Not many options to choose from."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and professional."
Cons: ". The economy seats on the Lufthansa A350 were extremely uncomfortable and seemed excessively narrow as well has having cramped legroom. I could not get comfortable let alone sleep, and my backside felt like I had been sitting on a park bench rather than a long haul coach airline seat."
Pros: "My flight was delayed four hours, so I missed my connection to Sofia and had to re-book for two connecting flights instead of one, which makes for a long, tiring trip."
Cons: "I understand the delay due to weather conditions, but I wish I was rebooked for one, not two connecting flights. Now, instead of flying directly to Sofia from Frankfurt, I have to go to Munich first and then to Sofia, which makes my trip 9 hours longer"
Cons: "They told us there were no earbuds so recommended using our own. Our children had left theirs at home so they ran to get a $20 pair nearby. But the the plane DID have the buds; what we did not have were blankets — the crew said none were to be had."
Pros: "On the first leg of flight - united, we were surprised by the stewardess' request. We have 2 small children. The stewardess asked the man to change the seat so we can have more room in the center seats. We are grateful for that otherwise it will be very uncomfortable long flight."
Cons: "I am hoping for games but didn't find chess or any other games on the Lufthansa flight. Please add that on the flight otherwise I will stuck watching the movies the rest of flight."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and provided excellent service"
Cons: "The seat could have been a little bit more comfortable. Then again for a long trip, unless you are in business or first class, it's not going to be that comfortable."
Cons: "Fight could have been on time! It was over 45 minutes late, because of the crew"
Pros: "Baggage arrived with me. Upgraded to First Class because so many of those passengers got other flights the night before."
Cons: "Original 5 pm flight was cancelled because there was no Crew or plane, even though it’s a United hub. Though flight cancelled early, United could not get me home same day so provided hotel and meal. Next day flight scheduled 7:05 then 8 am, but even that time came and went without boarding. 15 hours delayed and no hurry getting the plane to depart at the stated time. Total lack of customer service and concern"
Pros: "Underseat AC power and USB power was the highlight of the trip."
Cons: "Food portions were tiny. Totally dehydrated at the end of the flight, and water was passed out in 100 mL servings. Insufficient space under the seat for a backpack."
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Pros: "Everything on the flight was very efficient and organized—the boarding process, the excellent and pleasant service, the food, and the entertainment selections. Thank you for making a long flight enjoyable."
Pros: "Crew amazing, airport security staff and procedures are preposterous, food crapy, layover way too long"
Pros: "The large plane that I was on was great. Comfortable and a smooth ride. Movies were good. Drinks good."
Cons: "Food could be a little better."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and professional, the food was flavorful and plentiful, the entertainment selection was good and the aircraft was well take care of and had amenities like spots to charge devices"
Cons: "The WiFi didn’t work even though it was advertised as working"
Cons: "In JFK, they asked to check in every single carry on. This is very inconvenient and adds time upon arrival. Considering that this is a late evening flight, the more you wait the later it gets. If this plane has not enough space they should use other plane"
Pros: "Quick entrance from JFK"
Cons: "Horrible terminal service will not fly ever again with aueromexico"
Cons: "Took us one hour to taxi out to the runway."
Pros: "Un avión en buen estado con buena variedad de Filmes"
Cons: "Quedamos mucho tiempo esperando dentro del Avión antes del despegue y después del aterrizaje"
Pros: "Horrible! They changed my flight to much later. I’mnstill in mexitco city waiting for my flight to Lima. Hated it."
Cons: "It changed last minute. I was supposed to be in Lima for my dad’s surgery"
Pros: "Tons of food during the flight, you can still get alcoholic beverages without extra charges, very on time. Flight from here to Mexico was perfect. Now, on my way back, there was a 5 hour delay. The treatment was much better than other airlines, but it would have been better to let us know that we could track the plane from GDL. Now my only complaint regarding the small airplane from MTY to NYC is that the entertainment is provided via a mobile device, yet there's no ports for charging it, and there's no way a device will last that long, which made the whole excercise totally useless."
Pros: "Good seats - boating was smooth- crew was attentive"
Cons: "Earphone were garbage- seat didn’t recline enough- food was atrocious- cold ham/cheese sandwich for the entire flight"
