Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Copa airlines lost my baggage for 6 days. I had xmas presents and all my belongings since I did not travel with a carry on. They did not communicate with my until day 5 to tell me where the bag was. It pretty much ruined my short trip that I get to have once a year with my family."

Cons: "I had to wait over an hour in line for a boarding pass for my copa flights."

Pros: "Total failure deception! I was denied access to the flight because of going into Peru they said I had to have a round-trip ticket and Copa would not let me on board. I was told this and after standing in line for over an hour waiting to check in at almost midnight in LAX. I spent hours on line I spent hours on the phone trying to recoup the situation. they wanted to charge me $325 to make changes plus other expenses of the airfare. I missed important connections in Peru. I am applying for a retirement visa there I should've been allowed to deal with immigration in Peru . However if it is the regulation of that airline that I'm not allowed in there without a round-trip ticket why did kayak sell it to me? Kayak cost me $539 and change not to mention a week and a half late getting to Peru! Customer service was just pretty much ridiculous I spent a lot of time on hold so somebody could go ask somebody who Ask somebody else a question. I could understand no refund however that was just downright not fair kayak and Copa airline basically screwed me over."
Cons: "See the above"

Pros: "Had movies and tv shows for free"
Cons: "This is the letter I wrote to the airline My sister in law and I rode your airline for the first time on July 2, 2016 to fly to Bogota from the United States. We first couldn't download our boarding passes on our phones so we were forced to wait for 1.5 hrs in line. (45 min of that which had no one behind the desk working and hundreds of people just standing in lines.) Finally after we checked in we went to the gate and we saw on our tickets that she and I were not sitting together even though I booked the flights for us together and chose our seats to be right next to each other months in advance. I went to the guy at the counter and he said that "it's a full flight, nothing they could do and you will just have to write a letter." My sister is diabetic and needs insulin medicine and to check her blood sugar and since we were unable to sit next to each other we were forced to go do this in the bathroom. Not only that, but to be on a 7 hr flight not sitting with each other when we were supposed to be is very unprofessional. The whole ordeal didn't bode well for your future repeat business of your passengers. Just very unhappy all around regarding using Copa Airlines."

Pros: "Puntualidad"
Cons: "Almohadas, blanquets aire acondicionado cuando recien subes al avion"

Pros: "Nothing exceptional, but it got me there smoothly and in one piece."
Cons: "I found the seats to be particularly uncomfortable but otherwise nothing was wrong."

Cons: "missing luggage for 2 days now. not Good!!!"

Cons: "I thought I had paid for my bag only to arrive at the airport and be told it was not paid I had agreed to one price and was charged another and on top of that to have to pay baggage fees. I will not be using your service again nor recommending your site."

Cons: "Everything was good. We just ran late on boarding"

Pros: "We booked premier class and enjoyed the extra comfort. The first leg of the trip went well."
Cons: "The second leg of our trip had a flight cancellation, so we got bumped out of premier class even though we had already paid for it. There was an 8-hour delay in Mexico City and the second leg of our trip was no-frills, so we have to go through Aeromexico's online process to get reimbursed."

Cons: "Flight delayed 7 hrs and the official website never updated to reflect the change. Called customer service twice and they had no clue. The last representative advised to be at the airport at the original departure time to make sure we spoke to someone there. That showed a lack of knowledge and trustworthiness. The airports official website also didn’t reflect the delay."

Pros: "Entertainment!"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and missed my connecting flight, they had me going all over LAX and took 3 hours to finally put me in a standby. Aeroméxico and Delta kept blaming each other and obviously I was really frustrated."

Cons: "Boarding was very delayed. The flight was very delayed. There was never an explanation or acknowledgememt, of the delay and it seemed no effort to make up the delay while in the air. As a result, a great number of us missed our connections to Boston. Poor effort by AeroMexico and Delta"

Pros: "Arriving 20 min before schedule time"
Cons: "Nothing everything was perfect!"

Pros: "I like that they came by for drinks and again for coffee."
Cons: "We took off nearly 30 minutes late. The seats are pretty small for a tall person. Food was a piece of bread, cheese, apple sauce, and chocolate. That's it. No in flight entertainment at all."

Pros: "the worse airline"

Pros: "Entertainment was good, as well as the crew"

I have created a report but they did not even told me if they will pay me back for my things. By the way I use a flight at least 10 times per month ( MX / US / and sometimes Europe)"

Cons: "We ended up on the same plane that we flew on from Cancun to Guadalajara. Major disappointment since this is about a 4 1/2 hour flight. Flight was full so we were unable to move our seats. It was a very uncomfortable flight. Also had challenges being able to use restroom while flight attendants were serving food or drinks. Had to wait until they were done and it took a while. Broken and uncomfortable seats. Lacked entertainment. Plane should be retired or have major upgrades. Otherwise, this plane should be used for short (less than 2 hours) flights."

Pros: "Flight went smoothly, no delays. Friendly staff."
Cons: "I got tired of getting crossaint sandwiches for each meal on flughts. Didn't like having to go through customs in Mexico when I was just catching a connecting flight."

Pros: "The food service and entertainment."
Cons: "I had a car seat for my baby. It was one of the last thing to be put out in luggage. I would suggest for car seat, strollers ect. They be a priority to be sent out in luggage first since babies are being held by parents, i was traveling alone, with all other luggage waiting for over 30 min. It would be much more convinient"

Pros: "Smooth as butter. Slept the whole way."
Cons: "Nothing could have improved it."

Pros: "Staff was helpful throughout the flight. I like being kept updated on arrival time etc."

Pros: "Another customer allowed me to sit in the aisle seat rather than the assigned middle seat. That was much appreciated. And I enjoyed an movie during the flight. I like being able to choose what I want to watch and stream it on my own device."
Cons: "It was really cold on the airplane. I kept my jacket on for the entire flight. I’m typically warm natured, so it was unusually cold."

Cons: "I didn’t like the food, worse I’ Ever taste"

Pros: "Latam would not transfer 1 medium baggage from LATAM to Avianca at Lima"

Pros: "Fast friendly service. From the security line to the friendly employees at AA. It was simple and fast."

Cons: "No complains"

Pros: "the flight was AVIANCA , not American Airlines"

Cons: "Tiny airplane. We had a delay of 2 hours."

Pros: "Booked through Kayak. Confusing because paperwork says Alaska Air but I was flying American. I understand subsidiaries but you need to be informed as the airlines are at different terminals. The flight was great. That ticketing glitch was bad."

Cons: "I need to be able to charge my phone on the airplane!"

Pros: "Good food, kind staff, free booze"

Pros: "Good food!"

Cons: "You better hope you don't have a short connection. Sacramento fails to allow you direct access between the A and B terminals. You have to leave and hunt for the other building through the parking garage with no guidance and then go back through security. Unacceptable!"

Pros: "one more bag"

Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."

Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't have any food or drink. I slept the whole way to Dallas"

Pros: "It has been a good experience! Kayak kept updating me about gates and terminals for my connecting flights..."

Pros: "Great crew!"

Pros: "The flight was fast and good service"
Cons: "En El Salvador the person who check my luggage was rude And throw my medicines to the garbage and she told That I need a proscription from my Dr , never it happen before , I think she work for El Salvador airport but she was rude"

Cons: "Check in through website was confusing to do. Flight shows on alaska airlines sight as a united flight. I downloaded the united app, and it tells me my flight is not just through american airlines, but through another carrier, american freedom or aomething like that. Very confusing. I called someone, I think american airlines, by this time completely confused. If there are multiple carrier types, I should be able to input my flight number and my info ahould come up for me to view flight info and check in, or seat assignment. In the end I dowloaded 2 or 3 apps, a confusing phone call, and when i got to rhw intial check in I was not treated well by tsa personnel. Maybe my name triggered thw extra search or something.Anyway, that last part is unrelated but my return flight was kind of a struggle."

Pros: "Solo que a la 1:10pm le comunique al sobrecargo del vuelo Avianca #928 Lima _ salvador 1010 1: 20 pm hora local me di cuenta que se quedo el anillo de matrimonio en el paso de migración en la bandeja, el sobrecargo me di una instrucción que debía hablar con el encargado del Salvador la Srta Geaninia Gomez indica que como no es pérdida dentro del avión no se hacen responsables, lo que no estoy de acuerdo que me digan eso ya que es trayecto del vuelo que estaba realizando voy a tomar medidas para presentar un reclamo ya que es un valor sentimental ya que ni me dejaron ir a ver estando casi 40 minutos y sentí que no me ayudaron por los menos con una llamada en el departamento."

Cons: "2 days late"

Pros: "good attention"

Cons: "Didn't even get on the flight due to delay out of KSMF and I talked to the ticket lady and this has been happening very regularly due to runway construction in Phoenix.

I missed a big birthday event I was throwing for my class that I teach, lost out on money spent for the event and missed out on all the memories made that night. I never got to leave, ended up cancelling my flight. What a waste of time. Seems to always happen when I fly through United."

Pros: "i was rebooked and am still on my way"
Cons: "i was delayed in ONT, making my flight an almost 24 hour trip from vONT to my destination. not fun had to reschedule car rental. luckily, they did not charge extra"

Pros: "Crew was great. Very patient with a difficult situation."
Cons: "Issue with something in the bathroom. I was on the plane watching them decide what to do for 20 minutes or more. Then I had to de-plane (just my row) while they cleaned. Then they decided it was too wet. Everyone deplaned. They changed planes and we didn't leave for hours. Seems like they could have found the issue and changed planes before we boarded."

Cons: "I paid 125 for my hockey bag. Flight was delayed but no email or anything. Changing my flight was miserable staff so rude and people on phones can barely speak"

Cons: "TSA took forever, other than that. My flight boards at 0540 and I got there exactly at 0545. The plane already made its way to the runway and wouldn't wait an extra 10 mins for passengers to enter."

Pros: "Three hours late. No in flight snack since the weather was too bad for the flight attendant to bring a cart down the aisles. Pretty old plane, so kind of uncomfortable. But the staff was really nice and friendly for it being the holiday season, so they get all two stars."

Pros: "2.5 HR layover lost bag"

This was an overnight flight, so all the places to buy food were closed- United didn't offer snacks or blankets or really anything for the troubles. There were kids also stranded."

Cons: "The cramped conditions. By the way, please add a "N/A" or "not relevant" or "not interested" option to your rating selections. Or allow categories to be left not rated. There was no entertainment on my flight and even if there was I probably wouldn't use it. I don't want to leave a rating at all for that but there's no way not to."
