Cons: "The boarding process at LAX was awful. I’m sure the horrible shuttle wait and transfer from terminal to terminal is the airport’s fault, but the airline did not do anywhere near enough to inform passengers of what was in store. It was confusing and annoying."

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."

The breakfast was at least in the mediocre category..."

Pros: "n/a"
Cons: "went to the airport to checkin for my flight from lax to panama, with a connecting flight to sao paulo, only to be told that because i didn't select a seat when i bought my ticket over 2 months prior, the airlines sold my seat (they overbooked the flight by 5 people or so). i had to wait at lax for the next flight, which wasn't until 8 hours later. the problem here was that i had bought a ticket to get to rio from sao paulo, and this delay made me miss that flight. so i had to buy another ticket, which was $175. i was only compensated a $400 voucher for missing the flight and for my time. not worth it. the airlines only provide you with a blanket. no pillow."

Cons: "I only had one hiccup w/a rather bizarrely unpleasant flight attendant that wanted very badly to make me change my seat. Otherwise, the rest of the crew was lovely!"

Cons: "Seats too uncomfortable"

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."

Pros: "I was so grateful for the upgrade! I injured my back two days before I was scheduled to fly out and having roomier seats that reclined and lots of water to drink really helped. I am SO grateful."

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: "The staff were friendly."
Cons: "Bag drop was unnecessarily slow with long processing lines. The gate area and on-boarding process was a zoo. Business Class seats (opposing design) were spartan and relatively uncomfortable. My upstairs 50B seat viewed directly into the wash room which made sleeping impossible. Food was not good. Overall, this is the weakest Business Class experience of recent memory especially for a newer wide-body aircraft."

Pros: "The service was above and beyond expectations. Seats in economy are roomier than I'm used to. There was also many movies to choose from for in air entertainment. Food was delicious. Will fly Japan Airlines again in the future."

Cons: "Can't really think of anything. It was a good flight."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Amazes me how the airlines can shrink legroom. I'm 6'5" & had an economy middle row middle seat. Needsless to say, I was stuck actually & figuratively since it was a full flight."

Cons: "I was in business class and was terrible The airplane too old , so expensive for that? Can’t believe it..."

Cons: "My confirmation number did not work; originally my flight appeared to be through copa but then it was clear that it was part of the way on United and part of the way on copa; Was unable to check in for flight before getting to the airport; first flight was very delayed and connecting flight was not acknowledged in the delay - in other words, I was going to miss the connecting flight but was unable to get any information about re-booking; waited in the airport for 6 hours then boarded the plane and sat on the plane for 3 hours, then was told flight was delayed until the following day; eventually did take off 22 hours late; when I arrived in Quito finally my bag did not make it; they did not deliver my bag to my hotel as they said they would in the airport, instead I had to go an agency and pick it up. I missed a day and a half of seeing a dear friend I was coming here to visit and nothing can make up for that. Overall, terrible experience."

Cons: "Plane was late and missed connection."

Cons: "..."

Pros: "Boarding went smoothly and there was overhead space for my big backpack. Attendants were nice."
Cons: "We received drinks twice but never got snacks. A bit of food during a long early morning flight like this would have been very welcome."

Pros: "Awesome Plane and flight"

Cons: "Terrible experience. Will avoid united at all costs. We arrived with enough time and called ahead. They said to run and the plane would still be there however at the kiosk, the personell was very unhelpful. They made us miss our flight, fly out the next day and didn't now help change our return flight to the next day. I called united, the booking agency and the other airline without getting any changes."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "A five hour flight and you only get a mini pack of mini pretzels and a soda. The boarding was made an hour late, the United employees didn’t seem to care that a line formed ine hour before.

Cons: "Seats in the last row."

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Plane was a little drafty."

Pros: "Friendly staff, great food.Overall good flight"
Cons: "Limited Space for Carry on luggage had to exit plane in order to check the bag in to cargo area. Confused as to why the crew chosen had no Spanish speaking attendants. We were going to panama there will more then 1 traveler that may not know how to speak English."

Cons: "I left New Jersey during snow storm. Flights had been cancelled on the previous days but our flight was not. It did not leave on time, had to switch planes before we actually took off. My luggage was lost. I did not make my connecting flight. Had sty over in Panama. Got to my destination a day late without my carry on ( checked at the gate...lost). Still have not located my other 2 bags. Very stressful expirence. Will not fly united again. Staff at my lay over was poorly trained at handling the situation and my luggage issue is taking a very long time to correct."

Cons: "Flight was canceled"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Worst airline I’ve taken in a while .. you can tel they want is $$. From charging to change seats. To have VERY LITTLE leg room (and I’m 5’2”). Charging for entertainment and the seats are uncomfortable. Crew seemed embarrassed. The crew was fine and did their job."

Pros: "Service was terrific."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "on time, got the seat I wanted"

Cons: "Video stopped working, power plugs didn’t work"

Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Narrow seat"

Cons: "Not enough time to get to my connecting flight. Landed at 9:40 in terminal C then had to run to terminal E for my 10:20 flight. Even if I ran as if I were in a marathon I had no chance in making my flight. Please don't advertise such a tight trip for purchase. Spent 5 hours at the airport waiting for the next flight. Lovely..."

Pros: "The plane ride was great really liked the connecting times"

Pros: "First rate service"

Pros: "Flight attendants were awesome. Understanding and kind."
Cons: "Small seats"

Pros: "Good attention"
Cons: "Food not Not any enterteinmet unless you pay"

Cons: "El peor servicio que he recibido"

Pros: "the large Wide body plan"

Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful. They saw I am a large person using a crutch for my foot and upgraded me to business economy with an empty seat next to me. The plane was only about half full, so this was easy for them."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had an annoying habit of pausing frequently to buffer the movie. I tried to pause it purposely to gain buffer, but to no avail. Because of this, I was unable to watch the entire film. I chose the length to be well below the flight time, so the lack of closure was annoying. There are not enough chocolate choices in the snack menu."

Pros: "It was good overall"

Pros: "Very helpful wheelchair boarding -- very fendly and professional ticket counter/check-in personnel"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"

Pros: "Staff nice and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The computers were down in SJC so everyone was waiting in line to check in and drop off luggage. It was a very long and slow process, but staff were friendly and professional even with difficult passengers. The thing that bugged me was they kept telling us not to worry and that the flight would be delayed so that we all could make it. I was the last one on the plane and I know there had to be at least 10 that didn't make it in time. I think the flight was only delayed by like 15min or so. I don't think they should tell people not to worry because the plane will wait for them, when it didn't wait for all. I get it that you want to also please those in the plane already and those waiting at destination so I'm not upset. Just giving feedback."

Pros: "I had an entire row to myself."

Pros: "Good service"

Cons: "Because the flight to Houston sat on the tarmac for so long, no one was able to get food in the airport before boarding this flight. I was at the back of the plane and there was NO fresh food available once the flight attendants reached the last 6-10 rows. Unacceptable that there is not enough food options for all passengers. By the time I landed in Panama, I had not eaten for 13 hours."

Pros: "It was indeed good experience."

Pros: "After I boarded the plane I discovered my seat had been assigned to another passenger as well as myself! A bit unnerving but nicely solved by an upgrade to business class!"

Pros: "Airline personel were all very pleasant and eager to help, just not very effective"

Pros: "All went smoothly this trip"
Cons: "The ability to standby for earlier flights with no added fee"

Pros: "Good price, Good people"

Pros: "I like the raffle ticket for middle seat."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "spirit sucks"

Pros: "Actual plane interior was nice."
Cons: "Baggage policy is misleading and absurd. $50 for a carry on doesn't make any sense."

Pros: "Some of the air hostesses were nice.. Others were not that personable"
Cons: "as above"

Cons: "It's was delayed causing for a lot of expensive ad ons."

Cons: "Stated that we were NOT boarding. Also the gate number was wrong on the transfer and several people who were not me were sitting at the wrong gate and did not hear the announcer's voice and were pissed."

Pros: "Smooth and quick take off as well as landing"

Cons: "I had two carry on cases at LAX, a briefcase for my computer and a Samsonite small case that would have fitted in an overhead compartment. The attendant at the ticket counter told me it would cost $59.00 to carry it inside the plane and $52.00 to put it as checked in luggage. So I agreed to send it as checked in luggage. On my return trip I did not ask any questions, I paid $52.00 repeated the same experience. Later I found out that there were passengers carrying similar size cases in overhead compartments. I am thoroughly disappointed with Spirit Airlines for singling me out and charging me $104.00 to increase their income."

Cons: "None existent."

Cons: "Was not accommodating. I wanted to do standby. The agent did not help"

Pros: "The plane"
Cons: "The personnel and the way they handle people"

Cons: "Over priced luggage fees. Unclean planes, untrained employees"

Cons: "I am boycotting spirit airlines. Their fees, bad service, poor treatment of customers and their own employees is unacceptable. I will be telling everyone I know to boycott as well."

Cons: "We had a baby with us, they didn't provide boarding pass online and then they asked to stand in general queue for half an hour. They should have provided boarding pass online or should have treated us as preferred customer"

Cons: "They cancelled ruined my plans"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "Delayed over an hour on the runway, crappy vodka"

Pros: "Everything was good no complaints"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "Costemer service"

Cons: "Both flights , to and from destination were delayed quite a bit"

Pros: "Nothing"
