JetBlue doesn’t inform their passengers of why the flight is delayed. If you land it and don’t get out of the plane yet they don’t tell you what you are still sanding in the plane. JerBlue doesn’t keep their passenger inform of anything. They really should be thankful that they are still in business and is that is to all their customers but they don’t value that at all.
I liked how fast the trip was. The cheese ITs we got where stale
Having to pay $35 to check my small suitcase that could have fit in the overhead compartment. Poor communication with baggage claim carousel pickup. Upon arrival, the same baggage claim carousel (marked “United”) was used for multiple flights, causing over crowding (COVID concerns anyone?), and waiting too long to retrieve the bag.
I did not like the spontaneous stop in Puerto Rico. The flight staff was kind
Pros: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours."
Cons: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours. We were told to arrive at the airport for our flight which was delayed incase our flight left on time. our gate changed five different times. Our flight was supposed to leave from Puerto Rico to Ft. Lauderdale @ 1:30 p.m. the flight kept getting delayed . our flight did not take off until 7:30 that evening. Nobody informed us of anything what the delay was etc. it was handled horribly by Jet Blue staff. We were t offered vouchers nothing."
I don't recall hearing any boarding announcements, people just started getting in line. Flight attendants were nice. A bit chatty with each other but helpful enough during our tarmac delay. Plane ride was very comfortable.
Pros: "Everything it was ok. Travel on time."
Cons: "No complaint."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight by about 15 minutes, strange that we get delayed for about an hour but the connecting flight can’t wait a few minutes. Currently en route to another airport to spend the night at the airport and then take an early morning flight to my home city. Would have been nice to get a hotel room. I also had trouble with being charged for a second checked bag when I only had a single checked bag, would be great if the customer service help desk could help with that at the airport."
Pros: "The crew in the plane was good and the fly was good."
Cons: "Boarding crew in front desk was not too friendly and could have used better words to communicate. Seen I was waiting for 20min before realizing that my gate was changed after check in. I approached the lady in the front desk to see if it was time to get my seats assigned. The lady in the front desk asked me in Spanish if I new English seen I was speaking Spanish to her I really don’t get why me knowing English had to do with me getting my seats. Also I went to gat 7 cuz that’s the gate I printed out 1hr before my fly but had to run to gate 3 cuz JetBlue changed gate seen 7am but couldn’t change it on the check in printouts/information (does that even make sense). Finally the answering service is a lottery you have to pray you get someone nice(and I hate to say this cuz I’m Puerto Rican but we can be so rude in customer service). You can tell from the accent a person has where they from and every time I get a Central American person they are so nice but when you get a Puerto Rican person they can be so rude and almost always you get nothing answer or done. This particular time before my flight I call to get my seat cuz when I flew to PR and almost always I call 24hr before my flight and get my seats assign free of charge. Not this time the customer rep answered and I tell her that I’m calling to get my seats and she answers you can do that when you check in, I tell her that I try but I’m being charged to get them and that in my previous flight the girl said to call 24hr before this flight and I could get them assigned free of charge (which was true cuz I had call for my fly going to PR and the girl also said it too) and the customer rep said well it probably cuz is not 24hr before yet. I told the rep yes it is I’m currently on my way to the airport but I want to get them before I get to the airport and the rep answers well you can do it when you get there (mind you I’ve been on hold waiting for almost 2hr that’s why I’m on my way to the airport cuz I usually do it 5-6hr before my flight but the answering service has been very busy) I tell her that I’m trying to save some time and get them before I get to the airport and the rep said well I can’t help you cuz we can’t give you seat on the phone you have to do it when you check in or wait until you get to the airport and they’ll give you your seats. It’s very frustrating that there’s people like this and they are from the same birthplace as you. So sad!"
Cons: "We had a 5 hours delay and crew didn’t have any information"
Cons: "flight was delayed"
Pros: "Crew was excellent The seats was very comfortable"
Cons: "Something has to be done with your entertainment system. Not only was it not working going out of Newark to Phoenix but also was not working on the return flight home. They tried to reboot it several times and it still didn’t work. You seen your advertising that you’re not going to be bored well it’s not true I was bored It made for a very unpleasant experience and I was very disappointed."
Pros: "Nice crew. Plenty of legroom"
Cons: "The time to get the luggage to baggage claim was way longer than expected."
Pros: "Seat comfort is better than many airlines but I still felt boxed in."
Cons: "Flight crew was mediocre at best. Very abrupt and snippy when offering drinks and snacks. Flight attendant who gave disembarking instructions had difficulty with language and stuttered and stumbled with words."
Pros: "Purchased even more space seats. Unfortunately so did a family with a screaming 2 year old. She screamed the entire flight. It was awful."

Cons: "The TVs and WiFi weren’t working. That’s why i fly Jet Blue. Also the flight was very crowded."
Pros: "Very grateful for this airline. Staff with their due precautions. The seating area was clean, the food was light (but it is understood by the situation that we are going through Covid 19). All in order."
Cons: "I only found that they must be a little more rigorous with the rules of keeping distance when entering and leaving the plane."
Pros: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job."
Cons: "Some of the crew was decent others seemed annoyed they were doing their job. Two of the employees serving the cabin could use an attitude adjustment. The crew was late in getting food out but for a four hour flight there is no value in flying anymore. Airlines are just trying to rake in as much money as possible. When are they going to be responsible for everyone getting sick like cruise ships are? They should hand out masks and sanitizer because airlines are one of the dirtiest public spaces that there is! Show up late and barely clean the plane between its third or fourth leg of the day."
Cons: "Yes. Delay by 4 hours. I got the notification when I was at the airport."
Pros: "The seat and leg room"
Cons: "Better in flight entertainment and WiFi"
Pros: "Perfect take off and landing"
Cons: "Little chilly in the cabin."

Pros: "The space was very comfortable."
Pros: "The entire trip was comfortable I have no complaints"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "If there is a delay let it be known do not keep saying five min for over an hour. Also flight attendants were very upset to be working Christmas and my tv didn’t work. They also did not want to switch me to one of the three empty rows because they were upgraded seats that no one was occupying."
Pros: "Nice leg room."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Plus, for this flight, I sat in row 8 but had to put my bag in the overhead compartment in row 18!!! Huge hassle to get back to my seat boarding, and a long wait to get it to get off!!!"
Pros: "Great flight attendant especially the gentleman!!! Super helpful even with a bunch of cranky New Jerseyians on a delayed flight!"
Cons: "Too hot! AC was going on and off??"
Pros: "That we landed safely"
Cons: "Autistic child behind me without mom supervising her or sitting next to her . The child was about 11 but for some reason her mother was sitting on the isle next to her and wasn’t concerned about having that changed or helping her daughter have a better experience on the plane. The lil girl was screaming , she had a car that she rolled on my seat and the seat next to me for hrs. It’s not her fault, her mom didn’t do anything to help.. nothing .. Then the Crew was arguing and wasn’t happy at all .. Craig talks so fast on the intercome I couldn’t understand him .. Craig wasn’t happy with him having to do credit cards and wanted to do trash . Him and the crew from the back were arguing and I was in disbelief that not one crew member tried to help, talk to the mom or do anything about it .But they were involved in their own mess so they were not worried about the young lady screaming . I left that flight with a headache and no rest what so ever..i really wish the mom or someone would have said something.. absolutely awful flight .. awful I left there saying to the crew get me off of this plane pls .."

Cons: "the seats were very uncomfortable and it smelled really bad"

Pros: "Comfort and ease of travel."
Pros: "I have never seen an airline get the bags off the plane and onto the baggage carousel as quickly as JetBlue did on my flight!"
Cons: "Wished they had sandwiches for sale. It was a noon flight arriving to EWR at 3. That is time to eat lunch."
Pros: "The flight was smooth and uneventful. The landing was expertly executed. No safety issues. The cabin was comfortable and quiet."
Cons: "Fat snacks The $25 charge for checking one piece of luggage. The rudeness at the airport when I asked for directions. I don't fly everyday, so why would you expect me to know where everything is and exactly how your process works? The emotional exchange at the airport when I checked my bag. I was the only person in line and there were two JB employees behind the counter who were more interested in their social conversation than in assisting me. I made a simple request for assistance and was immediately blown off. I can't complain enough about this."
Pros: "Service is terrible on my way to Peru the entertainment unit in front of me did not work I am formed SteFf but all they could say was they would help me but we never return very disappointed returning from Peru our plane got stuck in Bogotá Columbia we’re trapped inside the plane For three hours with no air-conditioning when we finally disembarked they offered us to stay in a hotel but the voucher process also took a very long time we ended up going to the hotel at 3 o’clock in the morning in order to get up at 5 o’clock in the morning for the return flight very disappointed with that flight of Avianca again or would I would not recommend Avianca to anyone"
Cons: "Hire competent employees"
Cons: "For that size of airplane basing on the fact that it was an international flight not having a USB port or any power source by the seats it’s ridiculous. The boarding process was a nightmare, very disorganized the crew members starting boarding group by group just using ONE of the two entrances available because of it the line to board the plan occupied almost 2 boarding gates. I couldn’t reclaim my seat because it was broke, the quality of the food was very mediocre, crew members attitude were upsetting... uncaring and ignoring passengers call. Another filthy plain ... I had 4 flights with avianca between 2 International fights and 2 national connections, all flights were terrible! The worse part is I probably could’ve flight more comfortable for less money or at least get what I paid for."
Pros: "Delayed for more than half hour"
Cons: "More aircraft"
Cons: "Food was horrible but again not looking to eat on planes anyway"
Pros: "The crew was very nice people. It was a good trip."
Cons: "Plane was half empty and not allowed to move to unused seats. Excuse was something about weight distribution. Sounded like a very bad excuse."
Cons: "From bogota to NY was delete 1 hour"
Cons: "The cabin crew was really awful.. lousy service..I shut the lights off and then they disappear to go into hiding I rang my bell for service and some lady comes by a few minutes later holding a cup of water and I Asked her if I could have some juice and she hands me the water and walks away"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "thank you for the patience you have with passengers and children, very grateful thousand thanks Avianca"
Pros: "Yes the food was great and my seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "This is beyond the crew’s control: there was lots of turbulence."
Pros: "The crew was very good."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Cons: "The fact that I lost my flight because website vayama changed my flight itinerary and didn't airlines know"
Pros: "THAT i ACTUALLY MADE IT HOME"
Cons: "AVIANCA DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH SEATS TO ACCOMODATE ALL THE TICKETS THEY SOLD. MY ENTERTAINMENT SCREEN WAS BROKEN, MY RECLINING SEAT WAS NOT WORKING PROPERLY & MY TRAY TABLE WAS NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO CLOSE AFTER BEING OPENED, SEATS WERE EXTREMELY CRAMPED AND TIGHT. THE MEAT IN MY MEAL WAS HARD"
Pros: "Service is good and they provide meals, which is always a plus."
Cons: "The line to check in bags at El Dorado (Bogota) was 1.5 hours. Then the flight was delayed for almost an additional hour and no announcement was made. In addition, it seemed only half of the televisions/screens worked. The other half were blank."
Cons: "Avianca decided to strand a bunch of passengers at 2am and the reason was that the pilot was "sick." When we asked to be switched to a different flight so we would not have to wait until 2pm the next day, they eventually booked us on an early flight. We stayed in the airport overnight in anticipation of this flight. The next morning they informed us 10 minutes before boarding that they delayed that flight so we could no longer make our connection. We had to spend 15 hours total in Bogota airport before being able to go home. Avianca used to never be this inconsistent with flights. They should not be allowed to do whatever they wish to passengers flights and offer minimal compensation when they inconvenience customers."
Cons: "On Feb 26th we had a flight leaving Bogota back to NYC, and at the gate, we found out our flight would not be operated by Avianca, but by a Spanish carrier called WAMOS. Wamos airlines does not offer in-flight entertainment. It offers an app that you can download on your mobile device prior the flight, even though there are no plugs inside the plane and no fully reclining seats. This change is being caused by an ongoing strike action by some of their own pilots and this has been regarded with absolute no consideration from Avianca to its costumers. At the airport we talked to 3 different customer services employees, all giving us different versions of the story and no clear answers. One employee told us that we MAY have a possibility of reimbursement and another one that we could stay in a hotel and catch another flight the next day (which was not an option for us) There was no advance warning about this change to me (not even during check-in) Found out later some passengers gotten an email informing about this change, but not all of them. Staff didn't know anything about this flight. The gate staff only informed passengers of the change, after I complained, and kept insisting that the airplanes were the same, when clearly it was not the same quality, in amenities and service on board. There were big delays and a mess with seat assignments. Many customers traveling together with separated seats and of course, delays in departure caused by the mess that Avianca caused. Just to be clear. what Avianca is doing is stealing the money that we paid for a specific flight, to voluntary change us to a much less inferior flight, with absolutely no consideration and no compensations."
Pros: "The crew was kind and helped with getting bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The announcements were all in Spanish and it made it difficult for me to understand what I needed to do. I acknowledge that I was one of a very few passengers who spoke only English, so this was not a problem for many people. The leg room on the flight was incredibly cramped."
Cons: "The airplane and crew was from a different company than Avianca (Omni Air International). Only two flight attendants from Avianca. Omni Air International service was poor."
Pros: "I loved that I was upgraded to business class, which was highly appreciated since I had a bit of a rough adventure trip in Costa Rica and had all over body pain. The seating and service in business class was excellent."
Cons: "Loved everything about my flight."
Cons: "This plane did not have the new flat bed seats in business class The business class seats were narrow and not fully flat"
Cons: "The boarding process at El Salvador was a mess. People was not organized at all."
Pros: "Great airplanes."
Cons: "2 hrs to drop one bag and 1 hr and 18 min delay. Poor coordination with the staff."
Pros: "We loved everything about the airline we have been traveling with Avianca for several years now and we love it , definitely no other airline has the quality of service and professionalism as Avianca does."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled three times and I never make whit Avianca, in the last minute I have to buy quit American!!! Do I get my money back? I did not use in my way to Colombia and back to New York!!! Very disappointed, sorry!!"
Pros: "LA PELICULA QUE ME VI ESTABA BUENA."
Cons: "NO PUDE USAR LA COBIJA DE AVIANCA PORQUE TENIA UN OLOR ESPANTOSO ASI COMO LA DE MI ACOMPANANTE, EL AVION ESTABA HELADO Y NO PUDE USARLA POR CULPA DE AVIANCA. LA COMIDA ES POCA Y DESAGRADABLE. HABIA UNA AZAFATA CON UN CARACTER TERRIBLE,MALGENIADA Y PARA NADA AMABLE A LA HORA DE AYUDAR O ATENDER A LOS PASAJEROS,DABA MIEDO HABLARLE. A MI ME ACOMODARON DONDE SE LES DIO LA GANA, NO DONDE ESTABA SUPUESTA A SENTARME PORQUE SUBIERON DE ULTIMAS A UNA PERSONA EN SILLA DE RUEDAS Y ME TUVIERON QUE INCOMODAR PARA DARLE LA SILLA A EL. ME PARECE QUE TIENEN QUE DARLES OTRAS SILLAS A ELLOS. ES MUY INCOMODO EL ASIENTO. MUY CARO PARA TAN POCA COSA DE AVION. ES MEJOR American Airlines."
Pros: "Staff friendless"
Cons: "Business class seat wouldn't recline"
Pros: "No response given."
Cons: "After all these connecting flights especially after being delayed in Cali, the flight in Bogota was delayed and the Avianca crew did not announce it. After realizing it was time for boarding according to the time that I needed to be at the gate from my ticket, that's when people were realizing there was an issue. Once I got to the podium and handed my tickets the staff handed a voucher. There wasn't a hello, we're sorry for the inconvenience or the reason why the flight was delayed 2 hours. I had to ask them why what happened, what is the voucher for, how does it work, what time we were expected to be at the gate. The staff made everyone aware that we needed to be at the gate at 4pm so we can depart at 445pm. The food was okay and the staff looked a little annoyed when serving drinks. I shouldn't say all of the crew but from the back half of the plane the staff looked annoyed if not bothered. Didn't get to NYC until 12am, but had to wait on the runway for an additional 20 minutes. Again no communication on what was going on."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and courteous! Seats were comfy enough for someone over 6' tall."
Cons: "The boarding process was a disaster. Started late, so we didn't depart on time. I also noticed that some passengers who opted not to pay for their seat assignments just sat wherever they felt liked until the actual owner of that seat showed up and were asked to move."
Pros: "I had a rough time due to stomach problems."
Cons: "When I asked the attendants for some medicine to help my stomach, they replied they were prohibited from giving medicines to passengers. Since they are not doctors, I understood their point of view."
Pros: "The plane was clean and although it was full it was not incredibly noisy."
Cons: "The passenger next to me needed a blanket and the crew took a long time to give her one. She had to ask several times."
Pros: "I really liked how they gave out a free meal - few airlines still do this."
Pros: "Love aviancas attention to customer detail especially when traveling with an infant."
Cons: "This aircraft was a older model so not as spacious and didn't have a personal tv in the head rest"
Pros: "I received a free upgrade on my way back, it was amazing I wish it would happen more often... on the way their I had the worst seat in the plane. The non reclinable back seat"
Cons: "On the way there my seat was extremely uncomfortable (back non reclining seat)"
Pros: "Nothing at all from beginning to end!!!"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for over an hour while the passengers waited inside the plane without air conditioning, some of the crew members have despicable attitudes, the food unworthy of an international flight, not even worth it for a domestic flight and the most uncomfortable seats due to unkept plane."
Pros: "that we landed safely"
Cons: "plane take off was delayed flight 670 and employees on ground were un-organized and over booked"
Pros: "Food was good!"
Cons: "We landed in Ny around 8:33 pm, I was able to get my bags out of the carrousel at 10:10 pm!! Unbelievable how slow it was!"
Pros: "Seating was comfortable"
Cons: "The boarding process was not bad. They boarded all passengers at once instead of by rows. I requested a Asian Vegetarian and instead I got a meas 99% pasta and 1% vegetable. Very poor food."
Cons: "I took two separate flights with Avianca three months apart from NY to Ecuador. BOTH times the airline had delays of over 3 hours. The first time the connecting flight was canceled and all of us passengers were running around the airport trying to find out where to go. The new flight didn't leave until much later that night. Three months later, the connecting flight back to new York was delayed from 3pm to after 6pm and had a gate change without notification by the airline to the waiting passengers. I was not the only one upset by this. We were not compensated in any way for these delays. Quality of service seems to not be high on their list of priorities at all. I WILL NEVER fly Avianca again and I want at least a partial refund! I strongly suggest going with a competitor if you can."
Pros: "Quiet overnight flight."
Cons: "Staff was insensitive to frustrations caused by the airline. Flight was delayed yet no updates were posted at the gate. A delay on the Avianca flight caused us to miss our connections and the staff at the Avianca Club desk was not knowledgeable and told us to figure it out ourselves."
Pros: "Great choice of entertainment, individual screens"
Cons: "Disorganized boarding, supposedly there is an sequence of groups, but it was very poorly implemented"
Pros: "the flight attendants were very friendly."
Cons: "boarding was a complete disaster. the lady at the counter gave me all wrong information. the random screening was done very rudely. not a single staff spoke a word of English which is unacceptable for an international flight. the food albeit not significant after the horrendous boarding experience was terrible, and I had to ask several times for water. Further, for the flight to bogotá, we had called and spent a lot of time on the phone to reserve seats, which were then all wrong once we checked in at the airport. what was the point."
Pros: "Schedule at stated, the seat even though it was in the back, no one bothered to move in or out thru out flight."
Cons: "I know airplane food is not suppose to be the best, but this time was way below the norm. Flight attendants didn't pay too much attention as this airline normally does. The entertainment system is ok but it's content needs to be updated, not enough new movies."
No seat assignment. Was put in the absolute last seat in the plane. Flight was delayed because of an electrical issue which also broke the AC until we were taxi-ing. It was hot.
Seats were narrow and uncomfortable ( business ) and there was only one toilet for both business and premier…. The one up front was blocked as it was solely for the crew …. One always had to wait in line with 3/4 people in front of you ..at minimum….. while you waited , the crew made it clear that you were in their way …. Fair enough as we had to stand partially in the galley…
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Entertainment / TVs were not working"
Pros: "Entertainment on flight."
Cons: "The boarding crew was not helpful and rude. Traveling is stressful enough, not having a boarding crew be able to answer simple questions made the rest of the experience bad"

Cons: "Better care of luggage and better customer service"
Pros: "Everything was great. Seats, service, flight, crew."
Pros: "The crew was helpful."

Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Crew was great, check in was fast. Overall great experience."
Cons: "Nothing, really. Airlines unfortunately can’t make people patient or polite, & I can’t afford a private jet, so I’ll have to settle for an eye roll or twelve."
Pros: "Cabin crew was great. Was told they don’t feel they can do a good job of serving 48 passengers in Premium Select with 2 crew."
Cons: "Image recognition step slowed boarding down a lot. Food and amenities on Delta Premium Select seem to be getting worse"
Pros: "Fast service and precise timing"
Pros: "The poor cabin stewardess was working the whole time as it was a short flight."
Cons: "This is a horrible route, they charge you more than flying to Europe and give you a one hour ride in a cramped plane where you can't even bring in a carry-on. The cost is insane but is one of the reasons Wall Street loves Delta as they are racking in the profits for very little service."
Pros: "We got earlier than expected to our destination"
Cons: "Perhaps educate passengers on the new Delta process of boarding. Too many passengers where disorganized; the crew tried very cars to direct people"
Pros: "the young man who was our flight attendant was just terrible. He could care less about his job. Name I think was Nathan."
Pros: "surprisingly spacious seats. plane felt brand new. on screen entertainment was great, and relieved to have charging inputs for my device in the seat."
Cons: "Explain why there’s over a 2 hour delay"
Cons: "Faster lines at check-in. More courteous security personnel"
Pros: "Clean plane. On time"

Pros: "Smooth ride"
Pros: "Amazing service from crew"
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Space between"
Pros: "On flight entertainment was very good. Flight was smooth and ran ahead of schedule."
Cons: "They were out of vegetarian meal options. Really poor for a six hour flight. Also, the family behind us was atrocious, but that’s not Delta’s fault."

Cons: "Bigger personal space"
Cons: "Flight was 20 minutes delayed"
Pros: "Michael was super polite and helpful. i Traveled with my young son and he took such good care of us."
Cons: "The overhead didn’t fit my standard and I ask the gate attendant and she assured me or would. Otherwise excellent game"
Pros: "Quickly boarded and took off as well. It was a really smooth flight!"
Pros: "The flight attendants was very rude & keep harassing me about my emotional support dog, I was a real animal hater, the complaint is to long to list here, never experienced such a rude flight attendant in all my years of flying , I filed a official complaint with delta."
Pros: "How professional everyone was"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Cons: "When my flight with American Airlines cancelled, I felt so panicked because I needed to be in Florida on Saturday night. But thankfully, lady who works for American Airlines solved my problem on the phone in couple of minutes easily. After that, when we were boarding to the aircraft, there was a cabin attendant lady. She came to us and ask me and my mother if we can talk English.I answered her with yes we can, but she demands to talk with my mother. And English is not her native language, but it doesn't prove that she doesn't know it. She tried to ask questions to her like, "where were you today?" so we couldn't really understand the reason for her to ask those questions in the first place. So we couldn't really say anything. While we were talking about my mother's English, the all aircraft was watching us, and trying to figure out what was going on. After all, she made us to sit there and wait her to replace us with other passengers. We waited the whole aircraft to be seated, then she took us to another seat with my mother. I can understand that it is her job but I'm not sure, if it had to be that much discomfort. We got pretty upset about it and it affects our flight quality. Plus, while cabin crew serving beverages, they didn't really ask us anything. We needed to call them for our order. To be honest, I would never flight with Delta. It was a disappointment."
Cons: "The bulkhead sears had no electrical outlet"
Pros: "We took off, flew and landed without incident. Crew was polite."
Cons: "Even though we booked months ahead, we weren’t provided seat assignments until we got to the gate. We were put in the very last row with less room than normal and no window."
Cons: "Some of the flight attendants were rude and not very welcoming at all."
Cons: "flight ticket very expensive."
Pros: "I ran from B terminal to E terminal to catch the flight and as soon as I sat down, the flight attendant offered me a cocktail as she could see I was out of breath"
Pros: "Service was exceptional, flights were on time and in some case, early, and communication throughout was clear!"
Cons: "Everything was on time, but we had to sit on tje runway for more that 30 mins which made us late all around. But aside from that everything feom Delta from dropping of bags to Landing in Miami was perfect."
Pros: "Everything. I really loved that I could track where my checked luggage was, so when I arrived to my final destination I knew my bag was going to be there. The individual TV for my seat, so I could watch what I wanted. Having an USB port to charge my devices."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Pros: "Left on time... Arrived 10 mins early. comfy plane. Pleasant help."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very helpful and been nice."
Cons: "I didn't like that my delta studio screen did it work. I had to find other ways to pass the time for 5 hours"

Cons: "head of the stewards was nasty with everybody, not polite and passive aggressive. Very poor food selection, even if you paid for it."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Very cold on plane and when I asked for a blanket was told when she had time I then saw her give people blanket s all around me she was very unfriendly"
Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable the entire flight. Seats too close together, then when you recline you hit the person behind you."
Cons: "Good tv shows, friendly attendants"
Pros: "On line customer service was very courteous and helpful."

Pros: "Buen servicio y llego a su hora programada"
Pros: "Space between seats, tv on each seat, iPhone charger"
Pros: "flight was non stop and arrived more or less on time."
Cons: "boarding in PTY was awful--total chaos. Seat was uncomfortable meal was mediocre"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Copa change our flight to 5 hr layover with no options and panama airport is not comfortable to be there for that many hours unless you pay for the lounge $48 p/person and only 30 mins free wi-fi so very inconvenient. Also that airport closes the gates that are not been use so no one can sit."
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."
Pros: "Crew and seat comfort were exceptionally good"
Cons: "Since the flight was arriving at jfk,passengers were required to go thru a security check,prior to boarding.we were restricted to an enclosed area for hours with no water or bathrooms.small children were crying as it was a late night flight. Tsa precheck global entry were disregarded.avoidable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "I think everything is ok right now."
Pros: "Crew was rude, didn’t give the 12 people in our group any attention. We felt discriminated our group were told that our duty free purchases were considered carry on &we have to check our other carry on while the passenger next to my friend had her carry on plus 4 duty free purchases w/her & was not"
Cons: "I travelled with my husband, 15yr old daughter, 2yr old twin boys and 1yr old baby, tried checking in online the nite before and couldn’t, rep on the phone couldn’t help me, told me we were all assigned seats separately & she couldn’t help fix the situation, checked in at the airport & was told I ha"
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Luggage pick up"
Pros: "Comfortable, nice crew"
Cons: "Dirty baths"
Pros: "The information provided prior to the flight and online booking experience."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants Rude gate / entry attendants No guidance was given to passengers prior to boarding regarding how long it would be until boarding so everyone was just standing around pushing toward the doors. Long, unorganized boarding process. Attendants just allowed everyone to gather in front of the doors so rude passengers pushed their way to the front and cut the "line." No tvs in the seats. I am vegetarian and was not given a vegetarian option! Very Inconsiderate of this airline. Even worse, the flight attendant basically told me that it was my fault because I didn't ask for one in advance. Extremely poor customer service! Had I been asked, I would have requested a vegetarian meal but I did not see that option when booking."
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June with a window seat. When I got to Copa check in they told me I didn’t have an assigned seat (and I got there very early) and that she couldn’t help me get a seat assignment until I got to the gate. Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."
Pros: "I have no complain about nothing . The food was good better than nothing . The crew are very polite very Alert with the passenger. The was excellent very pleasant."
Cons: "The Airplane is narrow a little uncomfortable when you need to get up and you have to pass by between passenger."
Pros: "Got us to our destination poor."
Cons: "The long waiting on the line to board and the food portion small and quality poor."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised at how new, and nice, the plane was. I appreciated the entertainment system and meals. The crew was super friendly and nice. It seemed that try actually enjoyed their job, which is refreshing to witness."
Pros: "They offer food and free alcohol. This is not common any longer in the US."
Cons: "In Panama City during a layover, we had to go through security a second time."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable & price for Business Class very reasonable."
Cons: "Boarding crew didn’t speak English but, tried to be helpful. No one shared there would be 2nd security at the gate. Business lounge would only rate 2 stars. Reception team not very friendly. Nothing to eat & no outside food allowed. If you were a big drinker I guess it was great. Crew was nice but, did not make you feel special like on my two flights down."
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: "The food and the first class seating"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "On time departure, staff professionalism, service"
Cons: "Boarding process in terms of travelers blocking boarding lane for other travelers to board. An announcement has to be made several times for travelers in groups 2 through 5 to remain seated and not block boarding lane."
Pros: "I liked everything. Excellent service, friendly crew, very good food, well informed, been travelled with Copa Airlines for a few years now n will continue with them on the future. Great job guys. Thanks"
Pros: "The crew was attentive Ontime"
Cons: "Limited movie choices Limited legroom (like many airlines in cattle class) No chess in games"
Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."
Pros: "Me gustó todo, el menú para vegetarianos y demás la amabilidad de todos, el vuelo puntual y bastante tranquilo"
Cons: "Todo estuvo súper bien"
Cons: "entertainment system touch screen was not working. No relaxing music video, meditation videos. new Movie selection was ok only 4 titles, at least one was nominated for a oscar."
Cons: "There was a second security check right at the gate, which we were not warned about at all. I had bought a bottle of liquor in Colombia and they would not let me get on the plane to NYC with it. Luckily I had a large shopping bag that I got from the gift shop in Colombia, so I was able to dump everything that was in my nylon tote into that shopping bag and they haphazardly wrapped my bottle in one of my sweaters and checked my tote. The employees said this was a new policy in Panama City, but many other travelers were confused. Passengers should be warned!"
Pros: "The service aboard the plane was great"
Cons: "It was a little nightmare with the double screening, this is hard when you are traveling with kids."
Pros: "To do bien To do muy. Muy Bueno"
Cons: "To do"
Pros: "Excellent service from beginning to the end awesome job"
Cons: "They canceled our flight without notice, did not help us find a hotel or another flight and offered us a flight five days later in a foreign country. I am an American from USA and we should cut all contact with COPA airlines immediately."
Cons: "The fact that you do not allow water in the waiting area at the gate after passing the first security check is utterly ridiculous! if you want to enforce that policy you should provide free water at the gate. it was overheated and crowded to the brim and my wife went to get water after having gone through the second security check. She paid $10 for 2 bottles of water at the stand just before the gate and when she tried to come in again they did not allow her to go through... really a ridiculous situation!"
Cons: "The seat was too small. I am 5' 5" and 135 lb and it felt totally small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sitting all the time, the seat also doesn't recline enough. This was a totally awful trip due to the seat."
Cons: "Not only were we not told in advance that we'd have to go through security again in order to sit in the gate area, but we weren't allowed to bring in beverages we bought right next to the gate and there was no bathroom in the area we were being held before we were boarded. You'd have to go through security again. Also, the security guard accused my tall, black, injured, elderly father of being suspicious because he was sweating in spite of the fact that she wouldn't let him drink water unless he left the gate area even though he was injured. Never flying Copa again and never going to Panama again, not even for a layover."
Pros: "Arrived at the gate about 1 hour before departure due to heavy traffic. Attendant was pleasant and did a quick checkin."
Cons: "When you select the meal options in advance through the Copa Airlines site the phrasing of those ptions is not very clear and I was stuck with a choice I didn’t want (“meal with fruits” - it was pretty confusing in English or Spanish - while I assumed perhaps the dessert items would be substituted with fruit, instead they brought me a pretty mediocre fruit platter). They said there was no way to change this. Copa airlines personnel at Panama airport actually were kind of rude about it."
Pros: "The crew was really sweet."
Cons: "The waiting between flights"
Pros: "i dont know because i stills waiting for it!!!"
Cons: "no comments because i was supposed to be in ny right now amd im still sitting here at the airport waiting for my flight! because of the people in Venezuela! !"
Cons: "Lack of food"
Pros: "Everything was great accept"
Cons: "NO WIFI, MAKES NO SENSE. if you love Internet access while you fly Copa isn't the airline for you."
Check in was horrible in Miami. The woman was rude and not helpful with the questions. There was nothing to like at the check in and there were really slow even for First class passenger like me.
Pros: "Crew was fine, outlets were nice"
Cons: "It should be a crime to have a fully packed plane in the middle of covid. It’s also illogical to not serve food but allow people to bring food on, doesn’t make it more covid safe. I will avoid American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Fast transportation"
Cons: "It could be better if the pandemic was over, I think everything could be better."
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Cons: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "The movie selection was good, although it was in Italian. The drink selection was good. Thanks for the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "I began flying when airline attendants were called airline stewardesses. Their personality plus attitudes and attention to detail reflected on the overall image of the airline, and did not make me feel like a second rate citizen in a second class seat. I've noticed over the last decade-plus that this has changed. I've been rudely spoken to for reaching for a napkin off the cart as I was not given one with my drink. My elbow was hit by the cart as it moved from back to front of isle, and no apology followed. The garbage was collected moving back to front, so I had to get the attention of the attendant after she flew by me. I thoroughly researched the size of the suitcase required prior to flying, and bought a new one to meet the requirements. My suitcase did not fit on American Airlines. Why am I bringing up American Airline? When getting to the airport in Milan, Italy, 2 1/2 hours prior to flight departure, I approached the British Airway counter. As no one was there, I proceeded to believe I was too early, so I had breakfast. I again approached the British Airway counter and still no one was there. On my way to the bathroom, I found the flight board and followed the directions. I searched for British airlines at the gate I was directed to, but was unable to find it. I asked an attendant, and I was directed to the American Airline gate. It was very confusing. It would have been nice if there was a sign at the British Airways counter directing its customers to American Airlines."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "That I arrived at my destination"
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "1. No individual monitors. The pull down shared monitors are antiquated and not the standard now. 2. Would not fly AA from SJU again because of this. Unless I preloaded my iPad with movies."
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I hadn't realized that British Airlways had contracted the flight out to be operated by American Airlines. The flight was delayed in Paris and I ended up missing my connecting flight through JFK to DC. Though we were told on the plane that we would be given assistance upon landing and helped in an expedited manner through customs, instead I was briefly informed I had missed my connecting flight, handed an envelope, and told I needed to now travel to Laguardia Airport. No other information or assistance was provided. I was not given a reason why I needed to travel an hour in NYC traffic to switch airports nor was I given any help through customs. The shuttle I was told to take was unable to take me to the correct terminal, so I needed to get on a secondary shuttle. Again, after a 7 hour international flight, little assistance or aid was provided. I was barely able to make it through security in time to catch the new flight. Additionally, the actual flight from Paris to JFK lacked basic in-flight entertainment that almost any international flight would have. I will not be traveling on American Airlines again, and I am hopeful that Kayak and BA will be more clear in the future."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."
Pros: "Appreciated the staff acommodated me with an aisle seat."
Cons: "Had worse return flight experience. The flight was supposed to depart at 10am. While everyone was boarded, we were told the airplane missing a part. All of us had to wait for 2 and half hours for the crew to tell us that the part was in London. Thus, the flight had to be canceled. Then we waited to pick up our luggages from 12:30pm to nearly 4pm in order to get transported to a 40- minute drive away Hotel. I was starving because I didn't have breakfast as I tried to catch my flight and no food was provided during the waiting time. Plus, the entire day was wasted. Oh well, at least we were provided accommodation for the overnight, 2:40am breakfast, 4am airport shuttle, and 8am flight to get to our destination next day."
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "flights were re-scheduled and therefore had to travel a day early causing overnight expenses in NY. Re-scheduled flight was also delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "Had 2 plane tickets to Puerto Rico for my mom funeral But all the sudden my dad passed away one week before the date Iso a have to change the date They did charge me $200 and the other ticket was for my friend was my support he couldn't go cause he's job So I call and they said yes that they gonna help me with the refund all I need is a dead certificate so I send it the papers by email Now they telling me that they can't gave me the refund All my brothers and sisters didn't have no problem with South west air line and other airlines they understood the problem And they did everything without problems Worst service ever Not flying with them ever again"
Cons: "Charge for changing date"
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."
Pros: "I suppose the food / wine was okay."
Cons: "The plane was one of the oldest I have been on in years. The center aisle overhead bins were not even big enough for luggage and there was one TV every 5 or so rows. We were at the mercy of the crappy movies American Airlines chose for us. Most flights these days have individual entertainment and at a minimum room for luggage. The plane was old, dirty and not up to date. Never flying American again. Extremely disappointed with the service on the flight, as well. A little more than halfway through the flight, the woman in the row next to me began reading the airline magazine. Her window shade was up and the sunlight caused a horrible glare on the magazine pages that beamed like a laser over everyone near by. My friend seated next to me and I both have extreme sensitivity to light that causes migraines. I asked the woman to close her shade which at first she did about an inch or two. This didn't do anything to help the glare so I asked again and she refused to do anything more. I explained it was giving us migraines and she didn't seem to care. I asked the flight attendant to help navigate the situation, which was just as useless. She said she could ask but not force her to close her window shade. While I understand that AA can't control that some people can be selfish, I find it incredibly hard to believe that the crew can't intervene when a passengers actions are making other people physically ill. Our only other option was to be relegated to the last row, next to the crews stinking pile of garbage that had been accumulating for the first five hours of the trip. Almost every crew member we interacted with was completely apathetic to the situation. We spent the rest of flight nauseous and with splitting headaches. But I sure hope my row mate and fellow human being in 32A enjoyed the article about the dinosaur flea market in Bolivia This entire situation could have been mediated by the flight attendants who chose to disengage. Furthermore, when we were deceding to land, overhead bins were still open, and people were starting to stand up to gather their belongings in the overhead bins. Again, the apathetic flight attendants were no where to be found. Overall, disappointing experience. Glad to never have to fly them again."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and very professional. It was not a full flight and boarding was quick and easy. We landed almost an hour early. When we made the reservation we were told it was an 8 hour and 50 minute flight but we got there in 7 hours and 45 minutes, more than 1 hour early. It would be good to know the real timing so that meetings could be planned in a timely way."
Cons: "This is a code share with American Airlines and an American Airlines plane and crew and it is an out of date plane. There were no individual screens only 1 screen hanging down every five or six seats. The seats are very, very narrow. The cleanliness of the tray tables were gooey and full of crusted dirt as were the seat areas in front of the tray tables. I was told that they fly an even older plane from Europe to NY, which is an old one aisle plane. Not sure why AA continues to use such out of date planes but if they use planes from the 1980's it seems to me that they should charge 1980 prices!"
Cons: "One flight attendant in my section (23H), plonked food down on the tray with a curt, "passengers-are-a-nuisance" attitude. Her male colleague, when I asked about a spoon for the tub of ice cream said "It's there. If you can find it, you can eat it." I am a 71 yr old woman, and was shocked to be spoken to with such impertinence. Had I not already been travelling for16 hrs, having started the day in the Occupied Territories, I would have reported him to the senior person on board. I was just too tired."
Pros: "Is AA ever slightly embarrassed by the fact that their planes look like they're from the 80?"
Cons: "Shared TV?!!"
Pros: "cabin crew was nice and friendly. Very smooth and experienced pilot, nice take off and landings both ways."
Cons: "This was supposed to be an Iberia flight, but with code share nothing is as it seems. (Had to cancel previous flight on Scandinavian air as that turned into some Turkish Charter). These old birds were 30 years old, out of Arizona desert storage...former TWA, so no entertainment or power or anything. And, AA re-confirmation showed flight and ticket canceled! Said Iberia flight, Iberia said AA flight...yikes! Serious glitches and lost data...locator number erased! You see why I tried to take a foreign carrier."
Cons: "The plain was an old model with no personal screens... So boring"
