Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Nice all in all"
Cons: "Asked for seafood meal. Only to get some kinda shredded fish w. Ton of garlic and ton of cheese on top."
Pros: "Spacious aircraft with entertainment system"
Cons: "Check-in took more than one hour even though only few people were in front of me"
Pros: "Seemed to be more leg room than I'm used to."
Cons: "This is complete false advertisement and a blatant example of bait and switch. After booking 4 direct flights from New York to Barranquilla to Cartagena to Medellin and back to New York, only one of which was through bogota, I got 3 notifications that all my flights were now going through bogota with 3.5 hr layovers! Worst airline ever."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "I like the comfort measures of this ~2.5 hour flight each way trip without being "nickel and dimed" like what happens on the so-called "economy" airlines."
Pros: "The check in staff moved us to an earlier flight from Cartegna to Bigots so we wouldn't have to rush to make our Bogita to New York flight. Very nice of them & much appreciated. We flew Avianca 8 times over the past 11 days thru Peru & Colombia & had great experiences all the way around."
Cons: "different non-meat option"
Pros: "The attention"
Cons: "No food"
Cons: "Extremely disappointed. Tried changing flight back from colombia. The fee was $800. Change due to sickness. The fee was outrageous."
Pros: "I like the fact that the flight left on time"
Pros: "Great staff, on time!"
Cons: "My suitcase arrived busted open, which made the next leg of my trip more "exciting" than I would have liked."
Pros: "Lots of room between seats, that there was a USB port at every seat"
Pros: "Their service has lowered the standards though and that is why I do not grade them 5 stars. In particular the crew in the plane was not as nice and the food was not as good as before. Compared to other airlines I frequent though, Avianca is the best."
Cons: "Worst service ever and we got the last 2 seats in the plane. Pilot seemed to be disturbed and and had a bad attitude towards passengers that could be felt overtime he communicated anything. Maneuvers were really rough."
Cons: "Entertainment was out of service and I received no compensation whatsoever. this is part of the service we are paying for."
Pros: "The crew was very polite and attentive. Enough overhead space. Online check-in is very quick, easy, and a huge time saver."
Cons: "Some of the tv's need repair. The woman who spoke on the intercom (pre-boarding) wasn't speaking clearly on the microphone. making it difficult to understand her instructions."
Pros: "On the flight down from Miami to Cartagena, we did not expect a meal...and since we are all vegetarians, pretty much did not get one, but the flight attendants gave us what they could. I called Avianca and requested vegetarian and received for all 6 of us! Also, pleased that my whole family was seated in one row."
Cons: "The screen didn't work on seat."
Pros: "Just a very good honest and helpful airline - a first class service from a reasonably priced airline. I was in business class and extremely comfortable and very reasonably priced for the extra room and service"
Cons: "My office in UK needed to change my departure day electronically. She was told she needed (for complex reasons) to go to London to do this - ridiculous as we live on the Isle of Wight. The other option was I needed to go to the airport to change it and pay supplement. Luckily it was only a 30min taxi ride from my hotel. The desk staff could see the issue and resolved the problem within 20mins - extremely helpful. A shame this could not be sorted in UK by phone and email"
Pros: "Vuelo a tiempo, excelente atención, muy buen manejo de equipaje, iba con equipaje sobre dimensionado por qué llevaba mi bicicleta y le dieron trato preferencial"
Cons: "No hubo nada de comida, solamente ofrecieron café, jugo y agua, dado que no es una aerolínea de bajo costo no deberías dejar de tener la atención de unas onces"
Pros: "Really really nice plane"
Pros: "Clean and smooth. No problems. Food fine, nothing special, but no complaints."
Pros: "one of the best experiences in coach I have ever had"
Cons: "Crew was incredibly ruse"
Pros: "On time and easy"
Cons: "The two options of breakfast where the same thing except for a slight variation!"
Pros: "USB port and entertainment tablet on seat"
Pros: "Avianca is the most comfortable airline I've ever used. It's like heaven compared to many others. I would fly it every time if I could."
Cons: "Boarding's a bit chaotic."
Cons: "The check in process was hectic. Even though on line check in was completed 24 hours earlier it took us almost 45 minutes to get our boarding passes. We understand the need to check documentation but this has to improve"
Cons: "Where the snacks at?"
Cons: "This company is not honest - they pushed my flight back each hour on the hour - they did not offer a hotel and they never cancelled the flight they just kept delaying it over and over again."
Pros: "Everything I love this airline"
Pros: "Speed of boarding and friendly crew"
Cons: "I don't recommend avíanca it is one of the worse airlines now never again don't waste your money on them"
Pros: "The airline gives a good service to travel, always on time that's really good, but their staff don't have a good costumer service, food and entertainment is pretty good!!!"
Cons: "Some of the staff were so rude, specifically a guy was so rude and mean when a lady asked him for help to place his baggage on the compartment, he was so aggressive like mad because she asked for help and that kind of attitude feels so disappointed of them"
Pros: "Flight seemed pretty standard. They had some in flight entertainment that was a little dysfunctional for me but worked for my boyfriend sitting next to me."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Pros: "We arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "This is my second Avianca flight. Both times the flights were not full, yet both times my seat was in front of an exit row so I could not recline. A red eye overnight flight while sitting up perfectly straight is horribly uncomfortable. I do not understand why I was placed in this seat when there were other available options. This should be communicated to the customer when placing him in that seat, and a discount should be provided. I am requesting a partial refund, very unnecessarily uncomfortable flight. Thank you."
Pros: "Boarding was fine. Flight attendants were nice. Seats fine. Food regular. No entertainment options: just 1 screen every 5-8 seat rows."
Cons: "Lack of personalised entertainment."
Cons: "Business class not worth it at all. Seats don't recline and there is next to no separation from main cabin with its crying babies."
Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Nice plane, pilot landed softly."
Cons: "Security personnel at Msgr Oscar Romero International airport were ugly manner and very unprofessional, disgusting the way they treat people, I am Diplomatic Consul General and he didn't care and gave me more grief!!"
Pros: "They follow the squedulle every thing was on time"
Cons: "No complains"
Pros: "Friendly staff, free checked baggage, beverage service."
Pros: "1- The seating assignment that you think you have when you buy your ticket is not honored. 2- my phone was stolen by either the flight crew or the cleaning crew. I was one of the first passengers to leave the plane and immediately realized that my phone was in the seating pocket. I had to wait for everyone to get out in order to come back in and the cleaning crew had already pass trough my seat. I immediately called security, but what security? That doesn't exist in Avianca. I called customer service and they told me there was nothing to do. 3- Avianca is not a member of global entry, so go back in long lines. 4- Tge planes are old, no TV's on them. Your iPad is your only solution for entertainment. 5- You can't fly with an airline that tells you they can't do anything for you because a crew member stole a phone, not even try to address the situation."
Pros: "They got us from here to there."
Cons: "Chaotic check-in, snobby flight attendants, food that tasted like dog food and spam combined, entertainment system kept losing sound in the middle of programming, same programming each way, not enough pillows and blankets to go around on overnight flight. One of the worst airlines we've ever flown."
Pros: "Customer service on point. Great food, comfortable seats. Availability of 2 check in bags is helpful for those who traveling for a longer time."
Pros: "They are professional all the way. They take great care of their passengers. The food was very good. They made sure we had as a comfortable trip as one can"
Pros: "Organized overall"
Cons: "Cabin way too cold"
Cons: "Delay in boarding by 90 minutes; I think it was a power failure in the boarding gate...computers didn't work. No air conditioning either. Ugh"
Cons: "I missed my flight from ABV to Istanbul. The customer representatives at the airport office couldn’t help me find or place me on another flight. They wanted me to purchase a new ticket and pay full price instead of the difference. The flight ime on my itinerary was 12:15a on Sunday (instead of 00:15) which confused me. My flt coming to ABV, airline left my baggage in turkey too and had no representative at airport to inform us what happened. Seems airline treats flights to Nigeria this way"
Pros: "A Lousy airline. Also for Americans: They don't issue visas to allow the passenger who lost their flight to go to a hotel. They stated that there was a diplomatic problem between Turkey and the US so they don't issues visas anymore to Americans. STAY AWAY FROM TURKISH AIRLINES!"
Cons: "Delayed flight. Lost baggage. Although promised to be delivered on the next day, it didn't happen. Still waiting for resolution of this issue."
Pros: "Crew accommodated at seat change so I had a space between me and the next passenger and I got a row seat."
Pros: "Food customer service touchcreen tablet in each seat. Tablet has access to free movies, shows"
Cons: "for those flying to Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage or umrah, the crew is not knowledgeable on it."
Cons: "Previous flight cancelled due to weather conditions, and despite calling and having a lot of flexibility with time, we were unable to reschedule without massive charges. Our refund was quite low, and we will rebook on another airline. This, despite being a TK gold card member."
Cons: "I was supposed to be given two boarding passes through my check-in but I was given only one. This caused a lot of confusion on the Istanbul Airport. The staff there we unbelievably rude. They caused two passengers (on separate occasions) to miss their flight right in front of my eyes due to no apparent reason. They plainly refused to cooperate with passengers."
Pros: "Nothing, will never use this airline again."
Cons: "Worst customer service. Very uncaring and rude. Worst airline I have seen and I have traveled with many. Had doubts about using Turkish and a little less expensive ticket turned out to be the most expensive in many ways. Went to the gate 17 minutes early and the agents and the plane was there but was refused entry and was lied and told to go to gate 215 and missed the flight even though there were empty seats on the plane. Asked for help at the other gate but was given the run around and ignored by everyone and told to go to gate 214. After I went to gate 214 was told to go to customer service lower level. Turkish airline supervisor Mustafa Bogaz at Istanbul customer service held a grudge because I was upset and yelled at one of the supervisors and he told Mustafa and everyone not to help me and wanted to get back at me and said penalty in front of me to the customer service member I was speaking with. Mustafa lied and would not put me on a connecting flight and said I had to pay penalty and wait 24 hours. Told me to go to customer service outside the airport and would not call them after I told him I was ready to pay for a connecting flight and could not wait 24 hours and needed to go to work. Even though an American citizen was told needed a visa after waiting 1 hour in line and had to pay to exit the airport. The machine didn't work and the credit card was refused. Got stuck at the airport for 24 hours and missed work and a family event. Turkey is a hell hole and nothing works. Will never visit again. Mustafa 6 hours later was still holding a grudge and told another customer service member in Turkish in front of me to lie to me and say there was no emergency aisle seat available for the flight the next day. Got an emergency aisle seat the next morning when Mustafa wasn't there. Everyone in the customer service team including other supervisors took Mustafa's side and would not help me and lied. Everyone had no compassion and held a grudge."
Cons: "I didn't received my luggage same day Ithat was not find it and I had to wait 4 days to get it"
Cons: "My seat was terribly uncomfortable. The airplane temprature was really low that it made me so sick. I had a missing luggage where i did not hear any updates from Turkish Airlines for 5 days. I ALWAYS fly Turkish Airline internationally when going to Turkey. But after my last experience, i am not so sure"
Pros: "Everything operated fairly smoothly on the flight. Service was very good."
Cons: "Boarding was haphazard, no use of group numbers. They ran out of one selection for dinner less than halfway through the plane. My entertainment screen froze about 2 hours into the 9 hour flight and they couldn't/didn't reset it though I asked several times, so I read a book instead. I will say this was the exception flight out of the other 3 I have had with Turkish. On those, I encountered no issues."
Pros: "The entertainment selections and technology were great."
Cons: "There were no announcements made during boarding and it was a little chaotic."
Pros: "Plane was clean. Good food, nice details. Nice variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Entertainment system stopped working with about 2.5 hours left in flight."
Pros: "Best long distance airline I have flown to date."
Pros: "Cabin crew was quite attentive."
Cons: "Boarding at Istanbul airport took a very long time and was not organized. Meal preference was not recorded properly, so there was a scramble to find me a vegetarian meal. Flight was pretty delayed."
Cons: "3 hour delay. No announcements. Had to use my passport just to use the restroom. Food was terrible."
Pros: "The food was good, the flight attendants were mostly friendly and normal."
Cons: "While the flight attendants and crew inside the airplane were all friendly and nice , I can't say that for the employees inside the airport!!! They are the WORST employees I've ever seen! Multiple times, when I was trying to ask for help, they barely made eye contact or rudely ignored me! I was shocked! Never have I ever seen airport employees act so rude! One girl even was half asleep when I went up to her to ask for directions. She just pointed to the direction and didn't even look at me or say anything ! Never again will I fly with Turkish airlines."
Pros: "Clean, efficient."
Cons: "Inexplicably, food choices ran out and the crew were basically like tough luck...no explanation, aporigins or anything. My fiance who didn't eat meat was left eating bread and crackers."
Pros: "Food was wonderful, technology helped the flight "fly by", and the plane was comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was different in every city we stopped in - mainly due to other countries' airports and regulations. I believe this was not a problem due to the airline, but boarding groups weren't always adhered to."
Pros: "The quality of service, food and beverage variety, entertainment selection, and overall aircraft condition were superb. From the fresh flowers in the toilet rooms to the selection of top shelf alcohol, it was all first class, and all of this in economy. People who have not flown them will be amazed."
Cons: "The only thing I was disappointed in was the fact that the aircraft was a Boeing 777 which is new, but less roomy than the Airbus A330."
Pros: "Great service, awesome crew, delicious food, wonderful entertainment. They know how to take care of the people!!! My favorite aorline so far !!"
Pros: "Loved the food!"
Cons: "Although I had a book and good seat-mate, the movie screens stopped working after a few minutes for about 80% of us on the flight. That made for a very long 11 hr flight. There was no apology made to those of us with broken screens. and for boarding, the Airport screens when from no gate to "GO TO GATE" and we all rushed there, some of us 2 hrs early. They put us through security where we were stuck with no available restrooms for nearly 2 hrs before our flight. There was no reason for the rush, and there really should have been bathrooms for us."
Pros: "Flight on time and pretty smooth. Plane was nice."
Cons: "Same documents were checked several times. Kids screaming most of flight. I know that is not crews fault. Could not eat food due to food allergies. Very hungry and tired at end of flight. Legs swelled up very large. Good idea to remind passengers to move feet around every hour. But...overall the flight was nice. Good plane. Good movies. Would fly Your airline again. Will just bring my own food and move around more."
Pros: "The movie selection was great. Flight times were right on track. No unnecessary delays. Food was good too."
Cons: "The incredibly long layover. 9+ hours. We were all cramped in this incredibly small space like sardines. Please don't decrease seat space more! Very uncomfortable seats. I could not get my seat to recline at all. Service was very slow. Especially clean-up of food trays."
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for over an hour and we had to stand in line in closed off secure room (without restroom) due to security issues. They should have had everyone sit down to wait rather than stand in the ABCD group lines."
Pros: "Everything was really great!"
Pros: "Security checks in a narrow area serving several flights to the USA took way too long time to board"
Pros: "There was an amazing chef that specially made a meal for me since I am a vegetarian and there was not an option to order a vegetarian meal when I checked in."
Pros: "Great staff Best airline food"
Cons: "Nothing to not like"
Cons: "The food caused food poisining"
Pros: "It was a good flight, what one would expect from an airline. The crew came by the right amount with drinks, etc."
Cons: "I thought the boarding was a little irritating. They had a random extra security check at the gate, and the process made me laugh a little bit. I didn't see any value that this extra security was adding, and I'm all about extra security... just not this experience. On the other hand, the extra security was also very frustrating to me because my previous Turkish Airline flight had arrived late and boarding had already started before I even got off the first plane. I just wanted to get through the gate and be done considering the big rush the delayed flight caused. Also, part of the last meal served was salmon. There were no alternatives to non-seafood eaters, but they did have enough other food on the plate, which made the situation bearable."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Seat room was small for me and hard to get comfortable. More leg room needed. Also Overhead compartments filled too fast and no room for my carry on."
Pros: "Comfort economy is a great option if you're lucky to get. Service, food, drinks and attention by the crew was great. Lot's of entertainment options."
Cons: "For some reason in Istanbul they don't give a plane a bridged gate, but take people by buses a lot. Interior was a bit outdated, and the USB sockets broken. 2 Hour delay wasn't great..."
Cons: "Actually we were denied at Istanbul to get on this flight because they said they have closed the gate,even if they knew we were coming with the transfer from budapest.after that they made us pay almost 900$ for a reboking fee in order to get us on the next flight,huge amount for a reboking fee which I am trying to get back at least half of my money,terrible experience,in Istanbul at the airport nobody wanted to help us,they don't speak english,I ended to pay almost 2500$ for me and my husband for the tickets"
Pros: "There was nothing enjoyable about this flight. I am re-thinking if I ever want to take another Turkish Airlines flight again. I gave them rave reviews on the flight from Chicago to Istanbul, could this possibly be the same airline?"
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic and crowded. They should not be pushing a full plane load (777) through a tiny boarding area. By the time I got on the plane, all the overheads were full or overflowing. People were not being told to put one carry-on under the seat in front of them. The seats were the closest together I have experienced in a long time, probably since I flew Ryan Air. The spacing was totally inadequate for a flight that took 10.5 hours of flight time. We got stuck in a section with young children, and the inattention/poor behavior of the parents was ignored by the flight crew. Honestly, this was the WORST flight I have ever been on in my life and I have flown hundreds of thousands of miles over the past 40 years."
Pros: "great service, on time, good food and entertainment. Long haul flights are never fun but this was comfortable and pleasant"
Pros: "The plane, food and beverage service but especially the service from the flight crew far exceeded any expectations we had. We noticed the crew dealing with several difficult passengers around us and they maintained their calm demeanor and professionalism throughout the flight. I am also in the service industry and know what type of patience this takes. Your flight crew were exemplary through and through, bravo!"
Cons: "Our initial checkin was handled by a trainee in Chicago whom we told specifically that we were going to stay in Istanbul for one night on our way to Barcelona. She assumed that our final destination was Barcelona. But after verifying the tags on our luggage, I immediately told her that no, we were to spend one night in Istanbul as we had a performance (we're both musicians). Needless to say our luggage was not on the belt in Istanbul and after more than one hour we chased it down before it made it on the plane to BCN. Our tuxedos for our performance were in the suitcases and we were late for our performance in Istanbul. I will file a formal complaint with your company and I did save the luggage tags as proof. Unfortunately, this put us in a very stressful position, specifically after we had told your check in agent. The overall service was wonderful, however this check in agent truly needs a little more time and supervision before being allowed to check in passengers independently."
Pros: "I love everything"
Cons: "Same as the above feedback. Why couldn't Turkish notify us when our tickets were cancelled? Why does a persons entire itinerary is cancelled even if there are medical reasons for no show. Horrible experience."
Pros: "Flew from Athens to Chicago with a change of planes in Istanbul. Security was excellent. Flight crew very attentive."
Cons: "Luggage did not make the change of planes. Will receive the luggage in 3 - 4 days."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "Again, food and service were good. Entertainment options were sufficient."
Cons: "Once again issue with legroom, however, since this was a long flight, I had to find a row with an empty middle seat to be able to get through this flight."
Cons: "I've managed to book the seats that I really wanted for my parents; however the seats have been reasigned while boarding and they ended up in a row with less leg room."
Pros: "I loved the food and the movies that were available. Especially with such a long flight, it's good to be kept entertained"
Cons: "Space was a little tight, as well as the boarding process was not in order. Everyone was allowed to go in at once regardless of the group or where the seat was and that was a little frustrating."
Cons: "Get with the times and stop using plastic cups."
Cons: "The flight is so short that if you didn’t bring headphones, you miss all the entertainment. It wouldn’t be bad at all that the sandwiches are not stone cold. I fly copa very frequently and I know they often heat them up"
Pros: "see previous comments"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I was quashed beside a large stranger. The seats were not wide enough."
Pros: "Nothing, rude and not caring for their customers. My flight from dtw to Chicago was canceled and I was never informed. I lost 1 day of my trip and a wedding. Worst airline."
Cons: "Notify flight cancellation, rebook the flight with another airline, and offer a compensation since we missed a wedding and that was the whole reason why we were going to Ecuador. Worst costumer service ever."
Pros: "Having a direct flight to our destination won out. The crew members were polite and friendly."
Cons: "The seats are very narrow. The plane did not have in seat entertainment and the movie choice was awful. To add to the poor experience when boarding in Panama City, must pass through gate security with no access to a bathroom or ability to bring water on board. Given the inability to bring water, I would hope to have a water service at least twice during the flight in addition to the drink service with dinner."
Pros: "Everything was great food, confort, crew, boarding etc."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was flawless. Pleasant staff & comfortable seats... LOVED the free movies, audio selection, food, beverages, etc."
Cons: "1. would not allow duty-free purchases with under 60 minute boarding time. 2. required TSA check & disposal of all beverages before entering the area to wait for the plane - a 30 minute wait in the hallway!"
Pros: "The flight was not full so I had the row to myself and could stretch my legs. Overall, though, there was good legroom and the seat was generously sized."
Cons: "Would have like an adjustable headrest so I could sleep more easily."
Pros: "Loved the check in. No baggage expense. Up to two bags FREE! Then, we had a meal --that was included in the fare. The crew was pleasant and accommodating. Everyone was pleasant. To pass the time on the 5 1/2 hour flight, there were options for movies, TV, games and etc. Overall, it was a pleasant flight. When I book my next trip, I'm going to see if Copa goes there. If so, that's my first choice."
Pros: "The food and service was great!"
Pros: "Considering their is no water for purchase after security the airline should offer much more water during the flight. I was only offered a drink once during a 5+ hour flight. I had to ask for additional water later on."
Pros: "All the way it should be!"
Pros: "Food and drinks on even short flights Very efficient and friendly crew"
Cons: "The flights had connections that were too close together which almost caused us to miss the flight"
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is trying to appear as a big, powerful company. I choose them because there was direct flight from Chicago to Panama City. Big mistake. Take any American or European Airline. Worst experience ever!"
Cons: "Flights not on time, always late, lying employees and crew. They show a flight to Boston signs on the flight to Chicago, no airconditioning working. Bunch of idiots and incopetent people playing airline with passagers lifes. Never use them, you will thank for this advise someday."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and food was good."
Cons: "Someone stole my hat from the airline counter and no one could help track down who. I kept getting the run around. Flights were delayed and there was a lot of chaos albeit it might not have been the fault of the airline."
Pros: "Made it home safe"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline and horrible gas smell. Blower didn't work."
Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Anytime I needed something, such as a refreshment or travel form, employees did not follow through on the request or even return to me. It took over an hour from arrival time for luggage to arrive."
Pros: "I love the comfort in these planes and also the fact that at least they serve food, which they don't do in other airlines. The boarding wasn't good due to the stupid restrictions the US imposes on flights to the USA. We didn't appreciate the fact that the airline didn't let us know in advance that we couldn't buy drinks at the airport. That was a waste of money. The food wasn't good at all though. The coffee was terrible and so were the eggs, but at least we got something."
Pros: "Copa allows two bags of 50 pounds to be checked along with carry-ons. They provide a full meal on each flight (at least that we've been on). The crew is accommodating, even providing more than one drink. The chairs are fairly comfortable."
Cons: "The headset didn't work well."
Pros: "Comfortable leg room Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Very limited food options, International flights have poor entertainment options Very old seats and covers gave a very dull impression"
Pros: "The flight departed on time, easy connections in PTY hub, crew was very friendly."
Pros: "Nothing. Everything was a bad costumer service."
Cons: "I missed my flight because in the town I live , there was a landslide and rocks fall on the road. And it was impossible to get out of the town and I didn't find any help for refunding or changing the dates of my flight. Really bad costumer service, I'm still waiting for a reply of the emails I sent to vayama. Imposible to comunicar with it by phone with them and with the kayak office in Colombia."
Pros: "Very welcoming flight crew! Did their best to make sure we were all comfortable throughout the flight."
Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."
Pros: "The crew were nice and they had good meal servir."
Cons: "We were in the last row which wasn't comfortable. The flight departed late, arrived late, and it took almost an hour for the bags to come out. The entertainment was also very poor."
Pros: "Food wasn't horrible."
Cons: "Crew didn't know what food was being served. There were no movies to watch. The temperature on the cabin was freezing and there were no blankets available."
Pros: "Space between seats"
Cons: "Staff was rude and condescending to many passengers. Never smiled, and served the food and beverages with a bad attitude. Nothing else makes an experience worse in my opinion as a bad attitude. Both our flights were bad in this respect, however it seemed a little better on the return."
Cons: "Nothing wrong. Complete perfection"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Booked flight months ago and selected seats for my family to Panama and return. The flight there was fine. When arriving at the airport in Tocumen, the agent told us our seats had been changed to the back. They said it was because they changed planes. New seats were in the second to last row, uncomfortable, noisy, and near bathroom. Instead of moving seats forward this is what we received. Disappointing:.."
Pros: "All of my grievances regard the Panama staff at the airport and on the plane, the staff and services at O'Hare were top notch. Customs was extremely fast and efficient and everyone was friendly and did their jobs well. As far as the Panama airlines go, the food was okay, nothing special but not disgusting, and not all the flight attendants were unpleasant."
Cons: "The worst thing that happened was mean spirited security guards at the airport did a security check before allowing us to get to our gate. They forced us to dispose of a bottle of water that we had bought at that very airport. We were then quarantined into a waiting area with no seating and no access to other water, bathroom or food. Then on the plan we were offered beverages twice, so I was only able to get about six swallows of water from Panama to Chicago. Dehydration makes a plane ride a lot less healthy and comfortable. The staff was mostly unpleasant, the seats were really small and uncomfortable (more so than any other airplanes I've been aboard), and for some reasons they kept turning the main lights on and off, allowing us to sleep and then waking us all up for no good reason. Unbelievable."
Pros: "The people from Copa are so helpful answer questions I like that."
Pros: "The service by the crew in providing the food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "Being an international flight of 5+ hours long, they only transmitted 1 movie."
Pros: "Don't you know this information already?"
Pros: "I liked being able to choose my own seat, and the seats were pretty comfortable."
Cons: "The food was pretty bad. I'd rather have snacks than the weird beef and rice. As an aside, either the speaker in my arm didn't work or my headphones didn't work."
Cons: "On a direct flight from Cartagena to San Francisco we were delayed by an hour on the runway then stopped in Cancun for unspecified reasons. The Captain said we prepared to stop for one hour to refuel but one of the flight attendants said it was to change crew, which seemed likelier given the crew did change. We sat there for an hour with no communication from the crew. When we landed in San Francisco we sat for over an hour waiting for an open gate and also had little to no communication about how long we'd be waiting. Baggage claim took 45 minutes. Overall service was poor and communication was terrible. No accommodation for the significant delays and no drink service while we were waiting despite not being able to bring liquids of our own on the flight."
Pros: "The crew on the plane was very nice."
Cons: "The staff at the Panama city airport while boarding were jerks. A couple of snobby women with attitude problems. Also there was basically no entertainment because it was impossible to see those little tv screens and even if yiu could see, you have to crane your neck. Also the lighting in this airplane was so horrid it was unbearable. Who chooses blue tinted lights? It's like flying in an industrial garage for 5 hours."

Cons: "Boarding announcement only in Spanish and without PA. Hard seats. Prefer individual video screen"
Pros: "Food was decent."
Cons: "Had over an hour for a connection at Panama city, however there was an additional security checkpoint at the gate so our entire layover was spent in line. There was no explanation for the additional security which was the first problem. Water bottles which were with us on the incoming flight leg were confiscated with no opportunity to replace them with unopened bottles due to the slowdown caused by the additional security. On a 6 hour long international flight, drinks were only served once and that was with dinner. Also, there was only a single movie and a 10+ year old television episode played as entertainment."
Cons: "I had to go through another check point (inside the airport,for abconnecting flight) made me throw away a sealed bottle of Gatorade that I purchased inside the airport 5 minutes earlier for 5 dollars. That is ridiculous!!"
Pros: "Nothing.. They did not take any responsibility .. I gave them my ohine and showed all the calls to cops airline and the minutes I was on the phone with u guys getting information in my travel .... They then sent me to reservations she was a lot nicer and understood the situation . My phone number in the US is 2153686087 .. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org"
Cons: "The supervisor was rude and had no compassion .. I had called cops to inform then that j was traveling to several country lies and what are the requirements . Since my husband is from Mexico and I am from the US.. They did not tell me about the shot for yellow fever that was required and I specifically called to get information .. If they would have told me to look for the unfortunate myself I would have. But I was told nothing was needed . Because if that I had to Wilbur at the airport and chafe all other flight I had to return to the US and ended up paying more than $600 .. I had to change Three flight add hotel charges.. It was a mess .. My itinerary FEXWK5 and FEWS4Z.."

There were 3 different food options, and they all came with a little salad; the in flight entertainment was working and people seemed to enjoy it (I was reading a book instead). Boarding was easy and fast, the plane was surprisingly comfortable!"

If you don’t have enough seating available don’t sell a ticket that you know doesn’t exist. It’s not the first time it happens with Aeromexico, their airline is HORRIBLE & I didn’t expect with my first experience with Kayak to be just as bad. Never buying a flight through this website ever again nor am I planning to fly with Aeromexico."

Pros: "The flight was on time and I had no issues filight attendants Aeromexico in Guadalajara on either trip."
Cons: "The Customer Service agents at ORD are pretty bad, not knowledgeable and quick to pass on the buck. I was not allowed to bring on an extra package I had with me (pre paid) and was asked to take the package to TSA for approval. TSA approved it but the ticket agent still did not allow me to take it on, now I'm out $45. Also they made me check my carry on because it was slightly larger than the recommended size, even though it fits in their recommend size criteria."

When I questioned the lady at check-in why I was being charged for extra baggage and I did not have extra, she said those were the rules and either I paid or I could not check my bag in, then showed her proof that I had purchased my baggage option online and she stated they don't work with the online policies. That she didn't know why I had purchased my bagged fee online, and still charged me extra. I will NEVER FLY WITH THIS AIRLINE EVER AGAIN!!! She did not even allow me to speak to a manager, she said there was no one above her. Extremely RUDE!!"
Pros: "I was comfortable, it was an all Arround good flight, friend Iiness,."

Pros: "The crew onboard were very nice and attentive."
Cons: "At check in, they had me stand in the same line three separate times. Aeromexico personnel were very rude and even threatened me that I would not be able to fly.

Cons: "Nothing to complain about. Everything was perfect!"
Cons: "Rude staff, didn't translate announcements to English, uninformed staff -- when asked questions about the constant delays, had no idea where the plane was, if it was coming, or if the flight would be cancelled. We were at the airport for four hours not knowing the situation or whether we would get new connecting flights that we had missed due to delay. We ended up going on the delayed flight and getting new flights at the next airport because the staff was so uninformed."
Pros: "The flight was good. Takeoff and landing were great. Service in flight great."
Cons: "The online safety show didn’t work. They started it several times, then did it in Edson. The overhead reading lights flashed on and off periodically making me a bit concerned about the electricals. Our main piece of luggage was sent on a different flight. It took us over an hour to locate that had happened. We waited at the distribution point. We got one Piecebut not the other. After all we’re taken from the belt we went in search and found it."
Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."

Cons: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"

Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."

Pros: "The crew was very helpful at each stop even though they weren't responsible for the disasters."
Cons: "Initially we thought we were flying with British Airways. We then had to do some digging to realize it was all out of American Airlines. Then we couldn't get proper boarding passes and luggage tags until one of the crew members spent a significant amount of time untangling each leg of our trip so they were in the proper order. We got delayed by 4 hours in Chicago and missed our connection in Manchester. We had another 5 hour wait there. By the time we got to Dublin, our bags didn't also arrive. After almost 24 hours of travel, we arrived but without all of our stuff."

Pros: "It's a good flight but the crew in Mexico City is really bad"
Cons: "Good flight experience, but the front desk in Mexico they are really mean. I request to talk with the manager to give me solutions but the manager was the worst. The manager show lack of experience and he was unable to give me solutions. He give me more problems than good news."
Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "When I arrived at CMI no ticket was issued for my second leg, so I could not use the internal transit bus to at Terminal 5 at ORD ("for ticketed passengers only). I had to exit use the external train (which was delayed) and go through the very slow Terminal 5 security. Almost missed my ORD-LHR flight (arrived at the gate after the official closing time)"
