The seats were good. The plane was very clean. The crew was friendly. On-time departure and arrival. Entertainment center/WiFi faltered underway

My bought this for my mom who is very particular when picking up airlines, she said it was great!

Very satisfied with all aspects of my jet blue experience. Highly recommended.

plane was delayed 1 hour

Pros: "none stop fly,"
Cons: "could have more route to other cities"
Pros: "An excellent crew makes the flight so much comfy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The TV monitor was very small and the picture was pretty poor."
Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. The pilot got us down safely in freezing rain when we might have been diverted back to JFK! Super job!"
Cons: "Ear buds, even for sale"
Cons: "Seats did not recline."
Cons: "So first thing before takeoff one flight attendant told someone to turn there music down because it could be heard outside of the headphones, but then proceeded to talk extremely loud throughout the entire flight to the other attendants. It was a 6am flight and mostly everyone was trying to sleep, but she was so loud that I gave up after trying to. If you tell someone else to be quiet because of sleeping passengers, I recommend you follow your own advice."
Pros: "nothing much from my previous trips"
Cons: "inflight service is just average for economy class. the air hostess attitute is also not appropriate overall."
Pros: "Boarded, departed and landed on time."
Cons: "No TV no sound . Was suppose to get $15.00 voucher for further travel still has not got the email regarding it"
Pros: "Movie was goos"
Cons: "Delay of 30 minutes"
Pros: "Jet Blue know how to make everything right"
Pros: "On time courteous crew!!"
Pros: "The plane was very old and very warm when we boarded. The crew was great."
Cons: "Old plane"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything!!! This happened too many times with JetBlue! 5 hour delay was ridiculous!!!"
Pros: "My flight was timely, smooth and the attentive service appreciated. I like this airline’s consistency."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The flight was over an hour delayed in reality, but we were only told it would be 30 minutes late. We then waited on the runway for a very long time, which wasn’t incorporated into the information we were given. This made me miss a dinner reservation in buffalo."
Cons: "Disgusting."
Pros: "Great crew. Best flight in a loooooong time!"
Pros: "Love the new snacks, free WiFi, and TV shows"
Pros: "Unlimited snacks, roomy seating, tv/entertainment throughout flight"
Cons: "I wish there were more flight offerings from and to Rochester, NY."
Cons: "When I boarded and got to my seat a passenger with a dog in the seat beside me. I’m allergic to animal hair and fortunately I could switch seats with my daughter on same flight but different row. There should be a screening method in place to prevent this from happening to not inconvenience passengers."
Pros: "Got our tickets nice and cheap. Made it home safe and sat beside a cool person"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't go back, so sleeping was difficult. Staff seemed a bit annoyed with everyone."
Cons: "Someone farted nearby and the smell lingered."
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew. JetBlue... free wifi -- you can't beat that."
Cons: "Late leaving Boston on the outgoing flight and 30 minutes late leaving Buffalo on the return flight. Not the usual JetBlue quality. I'll chalk this one off but hope my next flight with them is up to their usual standards."
Pros: "Comfortable, great service. We were headed home in bad weather and were anticipating the possibility of cancellation, but the flight was just delayed a few minutes. Then there was a mechanical issue and we had to deplane and were moved to a new plane which got us home 3 hours after originally anticipated. But then we all got $75.00 gift certificates, so it was all good."
Pros: "Amazing staff and flight service. Wonderful trip between two great cities."
Pros: "Nothing to speak of except we got here in one piece"
Cons: "A flight that was to leave at 6 am did not leave untill almost 9 AM because the maintenance was onboard and would not clear it.. They swapped airplanes gave us a new gate and the same problem at the new gate as well..... the maintenance is in the plane and we will begin boarding once they give us a green light..."
Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."
Pros: "Even with snow falling in both Boston and Buffalo we managed to only be an hour late."
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Cons: "On the morning of the flight, our flight time was changed via e-mail 4 times."
Pros: "Lots of legroom, more than any other airline I've flown on. Free wi-fi, good snacks."
Cons: "Paying extra to check a bag."
Pros: "seats were comfortable and plenty of room - even without upgrading to roomier seats option. Flight was smooth, attendants were polite and professional."
Cons: "On both the flight to Orlando and the return flight home, we declined to check our one bag each because of the additional cost. Yet each time when we got to the boarding gate, we were asked if we'd like to check our bag for free to help with the overcrowded overhead aboard plane. 15-20 bags were checked for free. Why don't you just offer to let customers check one bag at no cost - on top of the one bag their allowed to carry on. If you're giving away free checked bags at the counter anyways, there can't be that big of a difference is there? And offering one free checked bag would be a great promo."
Pros: "Experience was average and therefore pleasant."
Cons: "I was in seat 8D and the headphone jack was broken. I wasn't extremely miffed but I thought it might be fixed for someone else if I left a review."
Pros: "Seats had more legroom"
Cons: "Just the rough takeoff and landing, but not as bad a LGA."
Cons: "Never got on it."
Cons: "No AC and seat 11A didn't recline"
Cons: "The flight had to be rerouted halfway through the journey due to a weired odor on the plane. There was horrible communication between the flight staff and passengers. The staff at the gates were not helpful either once it was time to deplane."
Cons: "Some televisions were broken and headphone jacks weren't working."
Pros: "Great plane. Flight was seamless. Only complaint was that hour delay."
Cons: "Delay in the flight. It was postponed 3 times. Other than that it was good."
Cons: "Delayed by an hour and a half"
Pros: "Seat location was OK , arm rest issue a real problem sound aux not working properly, could not enjoy entertainment"
Cons: "Seat location was OK , arm rest issue a real problem sound aux not working properly, could not enjoy entertainment"
Cons: "After boarding, we waited on the plane for a period longer than the duration of the flight, for a JetBlue crew member who wanted a ride to Buffalo. He was at his hotel in Boston when the announcement was made. JetBlue offered only free water for the delay. Water which was free anyway. At least they didn't drag a passenger from their seat to accommodate the JetBlue employee. That's about the nicest thing I can say."

Cons: "The flight was delayed so they put me in another flight. When I already had the confirmation, the people at the counters said I could not fly because the flight was oversold. I had to complain strongly and asked to see the manager. Finally I was able to fly, but after much arguing and stress. Poor experience."
Pros: "Service Departure on time Entertainment"
Cons: "I have no issues"
Pros: "We left early and landed early. Nice staff and attentive. Snacks. (better get rid of the terrible so called barittos-they were awful. Cookies not bad and the snack.

Cons: "Read the first."
Pros: "I liked that we got food."

Pros: "The entertainment on board was amazing. Good selection of movies."

Doodles with a pen on the tray table, sticky arm rest, and it looked like the other seats around us were almost in the same shape. I would've rather waited an extra 15 minutes before boarding the plane for it to be clean. I think that was really poor on their part."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Pros: "luggage was there when I got off the plane."
Pros: "Staff were friendly. Nothing they could do about the maintenance issue that we experienced."
Cons: "Hour delay due to a maintenance issue. This was a hassle in and of itself, but the flight was also on New Year's Eve and ended up getting us to Buffalo about 20 minutes before midnight, which was a bit disappointing when I had made previous plans for the night. Also, I found the cabin to be very cold during the flight, but it was pretty short so I didn't complain."
Pros: "Friendly greeting and goodbye.goog entertainment."
Cons: "Too hot, attendant did not know plane."
Pros: "Delta employees are a cut above American AIrlines and I have to say everything went very well with the flight. THe last flight I took on American went horribly wrong and it was not even completed."
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Cons: "The flight dely 1 hour"
Cons: "My seat ,the distance to get to the gate, The wheelchair l No window The distance I had it walk to get to my seat I was told this was the row behind the break after the exit row. I was not I’ve been with you before and have not any of these problems No more"
Pros: "At the counter the staff is friendly, nice."

Pros: "The pilots were communicative of why and what the reasons were of delays as far as the landing and getting the plane to the gate."

Pros: "Our flight attendants were lovely people specifically the first class attendant and he was humorous and witty, polite and friendly trying to make our christmas eve late night flight to be enjoyable."
Cons: "When we touched down in a blizzard we were told there was no jetway available and we had to climb down an icy ladder to walk probably 1000 feet on black ice barely seeing where we were going and at least one person fell and overall it was just very unprofessional and not the quality of service I expect from Delta."
Pros: "All the staff are sincere in serving. It must be a direct result of the great management at the top. If the employees were unhappy and rude that also would be a direct reflection of the management. I use the same flight often and let the staff know I appreciate them."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Fast as always. Very professional"
Cons: "Inwasny aware my small pocket knife wouldn't be accepted at the airport even though it has been cleared before and the staff was a bit rude about it.the food"
Pros: "Delta auto-booked me so I didn't have that worry once I arrived in Atlanta."
Cons: "Their system gives too-short layovers so any delay at the point of origin means a risk of missing connections. Many people on my flight were worried about connections because Delta delayed our start by over 30 minutes to "change a switch," whatever that means. Then for passengers with short connection times, they should NEVER be seated in the rear of the plane when it takes 20-30 minutes for the rear-seated passengers. Not very consumer-oriented."
Cons: "We we missed our connection they wouldn't help us at all."
Pros: "My Delta flight was a code share with Virgin Atlantic. A pleasant flight overall with my first impression being an airline with current popular music playing in the background and flight attendants cheerful. Since I was traveling alone, I opted to not purchase my seat prior to my flight date, instead I chose my aisle seat within 24 hours for free. I checked in my one bag and found out I had pre-checked so my security check went so smooth at the new terminal 2 at LAX. Looking forward to my flight back on June 15."
Cons: "Had a toddler behind me crying and screaming the last 40 minutes of landing into Heathrow because she couldn't sit on her mother's lap and made it quite unbareable for all of us in the vicinity. Wondering if there was an alternative way to handle the situation."
Cons: "Not a fan of the distance between our arrival gate in ATL and connecting flight to BUF. Couldn't be helped, I suppose."
Pros: "Turbulence didn't allow the beverage cart to serve passengers"
Pros: "As of April, they have free small meals. We had a turkey sandwich which was filling. Later came a snack, just enough to tide one over until finding dinner."
Cons: "Seats still cramped."
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Cons: "Boarding process was very sluggish causing us to be delayed."
Pros: "Good uneven full flight"
Cons: "Wifi didn't work."
Pros: "Everything went fast and smooth."
Cons: "Thought Comfort Plus had in-seat charging ports, but neither leg of our flight did (A320, RJ900)"
Pros: "N/a"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Got my first class seat, smooth ride, early arrival"
Pros: "Nothing. This airline is awful in every way imaginable."
Cons: "We booked tickets to Costa Rica with Copa and they just changed our flights to two days later than the booking. They didn’t even bother to inform us of the change we only found out because we booked through Kayak and they let us know. Apparently Copa expects you to frequently check your booking just in case they’ve changed anything and don’t feel the need to inform their customers of any changes they make. Then we were told we could get a Copa voucher to use for other Copa flights for having to cancel our booking and rebook with another airline as a 48 hour change to our flight made flying with Copa not doable for us. But the website kept telling us we had a voucher that was sent to our email but despite repeated attempts it never came through. And spent hours trying to get through to someone on the phone to sort it out with no success ever getting through. My advice. NEVER EVER FLY WITH COPA."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food was really bad"
Cons: "Easy and fast acces to aircraft."
Cons: "Time or order to boarding , entertainment"

Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Baggage return was slow."
Pros: "The crew was great and the food selection very good as well"
Pros: "The price I paid for the ticket was outstanding, and that I am not charged for my checked bag."
Cons: "Yesterday, COPA "did not have a system" so they were doing everything MANUALLY. I almost missed my connection because we were supposed to leave San Jose at 11:23, but did not get off the tarmac until almost noon!"
Cons: "Late to leave gate/ cramped"
Pros: "Everything!!!"
Cons: "delay"
Pros: "Crew and service was great."
Pros: "We seré stuck for 50 minutes in the plane, when landing as there was some problem probably with the airport ability to accept us. At first the captain anounced something but then no information was given. It was quite stressing."
Cons: "We"
Pros: "Check in was fast and efficient. Flight was uneventful, no issues."
Cons: "Copa check in is now at Terminal 3, but boarding is from Tom Bradley Inter'l Terminal. We did not see a regular "high placed" sign for Copa which caused us to make two circuits until we saw the street side sigm which is in a nondescript area and easy to miss. My entertainment touch screen was not responsive and sticky. It froze twice. However after bringing it to the attention of the crew, they did make the effort of resetting it. In this regard I highly commend the very tall FA who was a credit to his profession. It still had problems but did work somewhat. I will add that in all my prior experiences in which this problem occurs the FA's are too busy, or forget to reset the entertainment system, so I happy that he did. The interior did not seemed to be very clean there were food stains on the pull out tray and no in flight magazine in my seat pocket. the cabin crew was nice, youngish but did not have enough personality to tell off passengers doing things that they shouldn't out of common courtesy like the passenger seated next to me playing Chinese language videos out loud on his i phone. The same group spent a lot of time burping and then spending an inordinate length of time picking their teeth with wooden toothpicks which did not make for a pleasant scene. I almost lost my appetite seeing which what vigor they went at it, what were they expecting to find? They would then spit the residue in the air making me a bit nauseous. The food was dire especially the two melted cheese/beef/chicken sandwiches served near the last third of the trip. The main lunch ravioli meal served earlier was not bad. The bottom line is that the flight was uneventful with nothing to note, but there is definite room for improvement."
Pros: "Reasonably good food, nice service."
Pros: "Easy flight, good service, attentive crew."
Cons: "Food was not that great."
Cons: "This flight did not have the screens for each seat, leaving no choice to choose what to watch or to see flight info."
Pros: "El tiempo fue rapido"
Cons: "La comodidad del avion. Son muy estrechos."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "the connection was short the flight dropped me off on the tarmac never again will I go Copa"
Cons: "I didn't have a seat from Panama to Sao Pablo, because they oversold"
Pros: "Great comfortable flight. Decent sized seat."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Copa Airlines. Flight delayed an hour due to weather.(understand) We sat on the tarmac for 20 minutes when we got there. We ran to the gate. The guy scanned our boarding pass but didn’t let us board plane. We waited 6 hours to get a new flight booked. They had no line, no organization, they didn’t communicate what was going on, just left us sitting there in limbo. They never apologized for anything. They put us up in a hotel at midnight just to leave to catch our rebooked flight at 7:00AM. We didn’t have a chance to eat because we were stuck in line not knowing anything. When we asked questions they pretended like they didn’t hear us. By the time we got to the hotel we barely had enough time to sleep so we didn’t bother with the free dinner. They absolutely ruined our vacation. I’ve been using Kayak for years. Never again. This is beyond bad customer service; this is a total lack of empathy."
Cons: "The A/C it's very cold, and I asled for a blanket and they did not have one."
Pros: "The lost my bag and couldn’t find it till two days after.... they gave me no voucher or explanation I would like to be refunded foe this terrible experience ...."
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."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "I liked how accommodating the staff was with seating for my family, as I was traveling with two young children and we weren't seated together. There was more leg room than most other domestic air travel companies I have been on. There was no upgrade charge for every little thing, such as blankets, pillows, etc. We were fed on each flight, and alcoholic beverages were at no additional charge. The exit tax to leave Costa Rica was included in our ticket, which I was not aware of until I was leaving the country. (nice surprise). Over all, most other airline companies in the USA have made changes that improve their bottom line, but they have completely ruined any favorable aspect of traveling with their airline (American Airlines, Frontier, Southwest, Delta, etc). Copa has done a great job of providing great service and cost for travelers. Please do not change your business strategy by removing some of the above mentioned benefits I enjoyed in order to improve your profit margin. It is refreshing to know there are still air carriers out there that retain the service that is hoped for by most travelers. Also, Roxana and her entire flight crew were outstanding. Thank you , I will fly with you anytime I have the chance."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The flight crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable, and the flight was quick"
Pros: "The crew was super polite!"
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew was efficient and friendly."
Cons: "I️ think the crew could have come around with drinks more than once in a 5 hour flight."
Pros: "The electricity went out at the airport in Panama which caused cancellations and delays. Copa did not handle the situation well. They did not put extra staff to deal with all the people who missed their flights. It was a total mess. I had to wait hours to get a new flight."
Pros: "Overall good experience. Crew member were polite and pilot did well flying."
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable and way too cold in the plane."
Pros: "14 hour Layover when you have to recheck luggage is terrible. Can't even check in for 8 hours so stuck outside the airport with no place to go until 6 in the morning. Not good at all."
Cons: "14 hour Layover and luggage did not go straight through. Had to recheck baggage after 8 hours. Then wait another 6 hours inside the airport."
Cons: "El aeropuerto de Panamá e el peor que he visitado en mi vida"
Pros: "Copa has the worlds very best gate agents and check-in agents by far... they had a huge line and held very professional atmosphere"
Cons: "Always the good there was none"
Cons: "The flight was overbooked from Panama to Lima, so they leaved us for another day, and we missed the flight from Lima to Cuzco as well as the tour of tomorrrow morning to Machu Pichu, more than 1200 dollars of lost and for sure no responsability from Copa."
Pros: "Excellente customer service"
Pros: "My flight was delayed, causing a lot of stress at the terminal because many people had connecting flights. The Copa staff could not have been more helpful. Copa even put me up for the night at a Sheraton in Panama City when I missed my connection, provided free transportation to and from the airport, and gave me a free dinner voucher. All in all, a well handled experience in the face of disaster."
Cons: "Getting home a day late wasn't pleasant, but it wasn't Copa's fault."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Bad all around"
Pros: "The staff was nice and the flight was timely."
Cons: "There was no entertainment and the sanwich served was very small."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
Cons: "The online booking company was confusing and not friendly"
Pros: "The service by the crew in providing the food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "I'm still traveling.. copa rebooked on united.. is coming in at midnight instead of 2pm.. missed an dinner event I have planned. Disappointed some people.. plus I'm still not home.."
Pros: "The service was great. And I had a personal issue so I had to change my schedule and they were very kind and helped me."
Pros: "I loved the drink service. Star Alliance aircraft continue to impress me with their cleanliness and maintenance. The crew service is wonderful. I thought boarding was standard, compared to other airlines. The in flight entertainment was a positive surprise."
Cons: "If you stick to your part of the Panama City terminal, there may be VERY limited food options. For me the only food option in the area was a tiny fried chicken stand."
Pros: "The crew was exceptionally kind And efficient The food was ok"
Cons: "Not that much"
Cons: "Leaving vegas to Panama they checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" .. Arriving in Panama we flew to costa Rica again checked my passport and stamped my ticket "documents ok" ... Now almost 11 hours later we arrive in Costa Rica and because my passport was ripped they wouldn't let me in the country and sent me back. Why your airlines couldn't have told me this before I got all the way to Costa Rica and passed two check points I don't know. So you guys said you would send us to Puerto Rico but I would have to by my own plane ticket home... Very disappointed in your airline. And to top it off my boyfriend and I had very expensive osprey packs we were traveling with .. We used a copa plastic bag to wrap them up in Vegas so the strings would not get caught .. When we received our packs in Puerto Rico YOUR employees had taken the bags off and cut my boyfriends 300 dollar bag! I will never fly again with your airline."

Good service

Flight was delayed by one hour, then another 1/2 hour then cancelled and changed till the next day. We were not allowed to get our luggage & put up in a dirty hotel. I had cockroaches in the bathroom. When I finally arrived home…i noticed the airline had damaged the zipper on my suitcase. An awful awful trip thanks to American Airlines.

It was quick, plane was loaded and the service on board was ok

Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "Loading"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "It would be really nice and good for the environment to utilize less plastic bags and find ways to recycle more. When I think of the amount of plastic used in every flight I cringe knowing where all that plastic would end up."
Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"
Cons: "Debbie in Business Class made the trip even more special than ever! 1. Congratulated everyone on board for thanksgiving for those who follow that tradition 2. Spoke so kindly on the PA system in both English and fluent in Spanish 3. Kept my coffee hot fresh and always was smiling even those had to work on a holiday We will always fly AmericAn because of flight crew like Debbie..... 1000% super star for AA!!!"
Pros: "cabin attendant was excellent"
Cons: "terrible plane because overhead space is extremely limited and the curvature of the plane limits legroom for window seats."
Pros: "Seats were very comfortable staff was really professional"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Play primetime tonight cancel playing in late overnight real pain in the butt"

Cons: "Seats are cramped"
Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."
Pros: "The trip was easy and the time very good set!"
Cons: "Boarding is always awkward on any airline. If you boarded back to front and deplaned front to back, time and aggravation would be reduced."
Pros: "That our pilot was giving us updates as to why we were slightly delayed."
Cons: "Our flight attendant didn’t know what food we were getting. When someone asked in front of me, she said “I’m not sure it could be either turkey or ham”. If you serve customers from all walks of life including Hindus, vegetarians, Islam, Judaism, it should be expected that the flight attendant know if that is turkey or ham. Another thing is that there was no final check by the flight attendant. We landed with tray tables down, seats recline, and people were still on their laptops."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Pros: "Nice leg room seats were comfortable loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Vest flight ever way better then copa"
Pros: "At least they should give a can of the soda"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."
Cons: "Change of gate without notice because of this I lost my flight and I had to stay at the airport overnight the next flight was seven next day and the person out of content wass not nice at all she was so rude that didn’t make it easier for me !!"
Pros: "I had a relaxing trip everything went smooth and the crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "the only thing I did not like is the food choice because it seems like every airlines have the same to choices no big deal"
Pros: "Wasn't completely full."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delayed!!"
Pros: "Everyone was quick"
Cons: "Small seats"
Pros: "the crew and the people at the desk for boarding were great. the app helped me keep up with the changes"
Cons: "delays and changing gates"

Cons: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Pros: "flight left on time and went smoothly. Flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "person next to me did not fit in their seat and spilled over into mine. Could not even put armrest down - so i was sitting in less than a full seat.."
Cons: "Again American Airlines was LATE. It was boarding time and no agent was at the gate. 10 minutes past boarding time the screen shows that the flight is delayed 25 minutes... but wait, there is still no plane at the gate! After 45 minutes the plane arrived, again had to be "cleaned" and prepared for flight back to SF. Customers were told the flight was delayed because Air Traffic Control issues in SF, but there was no plane in sight... Again I felt we were being lied to. The plane was filthy with garbage everywhere still. I will never fly American Airlines by choice!"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
Cons: "HORRIBLE experience. I had a flight delay that forced me to reschedule to a flight the following morning and caused me to pay for an overnight at a hotel; none of the staff seemed to care whatsoever about their customers' travel plans or experience, giving us little to no information up to the point of canceling our flight, and doing even less to accommodate when plans were foiled. I honestly am waiting for a refund at this point. Terrible trip with American Airlines."
Cons: "Thought I would be flying on Quantas, not AA"
Pros: "CR is awesome"
Cons: "AA is screwing up with the flight times, bring them back"
Pros: "Very comfortable"
Cons: "Kept asking passengers pretty boarding to check luggage due to limited space...yet after we boarded there was at least 1 completely empty overhead compartment."
Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Lot of movement"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Seats are not roomy, but that's par for the course."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Served food and beverages. Comfortable flight"
Cons: "Food tastes better on other international flights that I have taken. Movie and music selection better on other flights too. One flight attendant not so nice when I requested another napkin. The first one fell on floor when as I was attempting to pick it up. I did get another one."
Pros: "Easier to board. Smaller plane so not as many people to climb over"
Cons: "Planes overall every airline are too tight but AA seemed better than others I've been on actually"
