The flight was ok, the baggage claim took almost 2 hours. :(

Annoying that every short flight is delayed over 40 minutes consistently . Why am i taking a 1 hour flight when it becomes two hours plus airport and uber time? Maybe we should all just drive??

my row of TVs didn't work

plane was delayed 1 hour

Pros: "It has been over 2 years and I still remember the service, comfort and atmosphere of this flight. Whatever JetBlue is doing, it works!"
Pros: "I liked the male flight attendants on my flight. They were nice and cheery and was always willing to help. The inflight entertainment and WiFi was great. The snacks were also good."
Cons: "I forgot to the flight attendant’s name but she was quite rude. I traveled with an infant who required warming up of her milk in a bottle and I would ask for hot water and she failed to bring it over. I requested hot water twice. Initially when the plane was taking off- she stated she cannot bring anything while the flight was taking off but even after take off and in cruising altitudes she did not come over until we rang the call bell and another flight attendant came over. Second time mid flight we happen to ask the same flight attendant for hot water as she passed by— she nodded her head but again never returned with the hot water. Again I hit the call button and another attendant came over and gave me water. I felt that she did not like attending to the flight guests and always seemed to give an attitude. I understand traveling with a child may be hard for others, but imagine the parents who have to care for a starving baby. The flight was also a bit too warm."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were stranded at the airport for hours"
Pros: "Basic flight"
Cons: "Major delays. Poor updates on app regarding timeliness."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and responsive"
Cons: "Would’ve been nice if they offer headphones. Maybe they did and I just didn’t notice."
Pros: "Love the free WiFi. That was awesome and somewhat unexpected."
Cons: "There was no coffee left on board when serving the second round - kind of hard to wake up from a 6 hour flight."
Pros: "Very good service"
Cons: "More food choices"
Pros: "An excellent crew makes the flight so much comfy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Facilities and amenities (WiFi, unlimited snacks, comfortable seat)"
Cons: "Gate agents consistently telling paxs to SIT DOWN if their boarding group hasn’t been called yet."
Pros: "Crew is always fantastic, JetBlue crew members never let me down!"
Pros: "Great crew. Mint experience is fantastic, actually great airline food. Better than any other domestic first class. Free internet!"
Pros: "Not too full of a flight"
Cons: "It was delayed 3 hours"
Cons: "Don't push a credit cards on us via in person brochures. I found it very unsavory."
Pros: "The seat was good, snacks is good."
Cons: "I wish the crew would did a little more to ask the people behind me stop playing the loud music and talking loud. Also rap music with bad language with children next to it is not a good idea. I actually like rap but not listening loud with the speaker on with kids in the plane is not considerate."
Pros: "Gabe me a free wine"
Pros: "the carry-on luggages were checked-in free at boarding to avoid chaos of the over-head bins space shortage"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Extra snacks and drinks were a big plus on a long flight."
Cons: "There were not enough people that checked their carryons, which lead to a long delay in boarding. Jetblue people should have demanded more checked bags to avoid a long delay in boarding. The flight was painfully long due to snow, which is understandable."
Pros: "I like the comfort of the flight and the kindness of the crew"
Cons: "I'm disappointed that my carry-on has been charged like a suitcase, that has stolen time to reach my booked house in the city"
Pros: "It was really nice having a USB charger under every seat."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and I was only notified when I had arrived at the airport."
Pros: "The entire flight experience: seating, price, flight crew, entertainment, and snack bar are light years ahead of the other budget airlines. Never fly NYC to SF on any other airline. The crew was so friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Everything was perfect!"
Pros: "The crew and ground staff were accomodating."
Cons: "Entertainment controller was broken"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough once it got going after a 5-hour delay."
Cons: "Flight from FLL to SFO was delayed by 5 hours due to a technical issue with the plane. Upon arrival I received an apology email from JetBlue and a flight voucher. However, I will also be filing a claim with the airfare app to seek reimbursement for the enourmous inconvenience this delay caused."
Pros: "return flight was better service"
Pros: "They made us wait in the aircraft for 1 hour because they didn’t have assigned gate! I missed my very important meeting"
Pros: "I love JetBlue's hot towels at the end of long flights. I also love that the have free (Good) snacks. They do have considerably more leg room and bigger seats, and the free WiFi is fabulous!"
Cons: "The cleanliness of the plane in general could've been MUCH cleaner, but I understand that with quick turnaround times and getting in and out on time this is difficult. The air temperature was inconsistent sometimes too cold, sometimes too warm which made staying comfortable difficult. I wish they had more fresh options on the later leaving flights. Also, two of the crew members were SUPER chatty all throughout our evening flight and I could hear them through the earplugs."
Cons: "BOARDING WENT SMOOTHLY, FLIGHT ATTENDANTS WERE GOOD, FREE ENTERTAINMENT WAS GREAT, SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE."
Pros: "The boarding was easy, the legroom was great for economy, the service was straightforward and the price was fair."
Pros: "Smooth flight everything moved pretty timely"
Cons: "Check in was a little hectic"
Cons: "Delayed and departure time changed but wasn’t reflected until I was at the gate. They also changed my seat from the front to very back of the plane"
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was awesome. They have free WiFi, Direct TV, XM radio and more."
Cons: "The flight was so uncomfortable. It was hot in the cabin, and the seats seem to be even more uncomfortable than other airlines. Our backs and butts hurt, and nobody was able to get any rest."
Cons: "I had to gate check my carry on bag, which is one of my biggest traveling pet peeves."
Pros: "Extremely slow taxi-ing at both Boston Logan and SFO led to delays. Plane was very cold which made it hard to sleep"
Cons: "Excellent flight attendants Clean, comfortable plane (other than the temperature)"
Pros: "Long flight so drinks and snacks were appreciated"
Cons: "The rude pushy passenger next to me who kept push8ng 8nto my space and stated that because I was on the Aisoe and he in the middle he should be able to push me 9verbbut that was not Jet Blue’s responsibility. Although the crew offered to move him to the back which he refused but it did quiet him temporarily."
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"
Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy! I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Kindness all around from gate agent who gave us lovely seats even though my husband caught in morass of pre-holiday TSA line to flight attendant who we saw first hand give superlative care to man traveling with 2 children, one of whom had very high medical needs and required lots of accessible supplies. Comfy seats and great communication just seem to go without saying at Jet Blue."
Cons: "TSA at JFK was having a rough night"
Pros: "2.5 hours late boarding because there was no piliot or co pilot. They lied about reason blaming on grounding by san fran but then a supervisor said they were waiting for a pilot because they were taking out"
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "My seat wouldn't lean back irrespective of how hard I pushed it. It went half way back compared to the seats next to me and then it got stuck"
Cons: "Late departure; headphone jack on my armrest was faulty so I had to hold the plug in the whole time if I wanted to hear sound of movies; once we were at the gate in SFO, it took a good 10 minutes for them to open the door to let us off."
Pros: "Again the on board crew was very helpful and were willing to vouch that the plane had mechanical issues not weather issues when the gate agent in LGB tried to tell me that I would not get reimbursement for ground transportation to get from San Jose to San Francisco. So the good is that JetBlue did reimburse me for the LYFT I had to take to San Francisco."
Cons: "Well I arrived in San Jose, not San Francisco. So I arrived 3.5 hours late. Also, I did not appreciate when the gate agent told me that I could not be reimbursed for ground transportation because my flight was weather delayed not mechanically delayed. I understand that he/she may not have known what was the issue with my original flight out of Salt Lake. But, telling me that I would have to pay for ground transportation at 1 am to get the last 30+ miles to my destination made me really worried. If he/she didn't know and didn't have the time or resources to figure it out, I would have preferred if she redirected me to someone else or a phone number or email."
Pros: "Crew were great, boarding process was good too. Great snacks and overall a good experience."
Cons: "The plan temperature was like 85°f for the whole journey meaning you pass our, sweat, or get a headache. Also the seats were really uncomfortable."
Cons: "The Jet Blue counter person was not helpful at all providing direction to us from International Terminal to Domestic terminal C. No help at all to passengers who are not familiar with Logan Airport. Major major disappointment!"
Pros: "On time, very efficient"
Cons: "Checked bag pickup was on the opposite side of the terminal, with inadequate signage."
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."
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Change the whole system be more kind and human"
Cons: "Newer aircrafts"
Pros: "Leaving and getting on time"
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "After confirming $100 bag fees for surfboard by phone, I was charged $169 at the airport. The cool air vents did not seem to work till an hour into the flight. It was the hottest taxi and first hour flight in my memory."
Cons: "Lots of passenger we were cold we needed a blanket and there were no more ."
Pros: "My seat wouldn't recline"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "When they were giving safety instructions we couldn’t see the videos. I’m glad nothing happened. They manage to fix the issue with the entertainment after dinner."

Pros: "Good flight"
Pros: "No assistance with carry on bag"
Cons: "Proactive crew to assist the elderly"
Cons: "We upgraded to business class but it didn’t make up for the old plane. It was loud, old and dirty, the crew was good. It was was a 5+ hour flight and it would have been great to be on a newer plane, which they use for shorter flights."
Cons: "The plane it was small"
Pros: "The service was excellent and I highly recommend flying with Avianca. My round trip to El Salvador could not have been better."
Cons: "The boarding process at El Salvador was a mess. People was not organized at all."
Pros: "Service, food & comfort are unmatched! staff kind & professional. couldnt ask for more."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The passengers on this flight from San Salvador to LAX were drunk and standing in the aisles and talking VERY loudly for nearly the duration of the 4.5 hour flight, and the crew did nothing about it. I asked the crew (a grumpy male flight attendant) if they are allowed to do that, and he merely grunted. The female flight attendants smiled at the large men drinking in the aisles and continued to bring them drinks. My boyfriend had a large man's butt in his face for the duration of the flight. Behind us a man was talking very loudly and obnoxiously about his travels to the point where his voice woke us up. The crew did NOTHING to mitigate the obnoxious behavior of the passengers, and allowed them to stand in the aisle for the whole flight, to the point where we felt claustrophobic and invaded upon. We were particularly surprised as we've heard that this violates airline policy AND the crew did nothing to even ask them to sit or to move to the back of the plane. In addition, it was very hot at the AC was not working above our seats."
Pros: "Entertainment, seat comfort"
Cons: "20 minutes on the plane stopped at the gate. 15 minute bus ride to the International terminal. Over sized bags took 2 hours to arrive. Regular baggage over an hour."
Pros: "Pretty good fly"
Cons: "Crew not to friendly"
Cons: "My seat didn’t recline"
Cons: "lots of turbulence/ storms didn't get movies or food or earsets etc for a couple of hours!"

Pros: "efficient flight, good/helpful flight attendants, arrived early, great flight"
Cons: "poor soft drink selection, mediocre food"
Pros: "The crew they were very nice."
Cons: "The food was okay.Also I was trying to watch a movie and it keep saying coming soon that was really annoying."
Pros: "Pasta plate was delicious"
Cons: "Flight delayed an hour Crew Service: 1) Asked for pillow twice and they told me to go find a chair with an empty one 2) Asked crew for a glass of wine and she told me that next time that I go to restroom I can ask for one Upon arrival there was no gate ready so we had to wait longer to get shuttled to Tom Bradley Terminal and there was no communication of this Terminal change (from 2 to Tom Bradley)"
Cons: "Screen didn't work properly"
Pros: "Everything was good service really good customer service."
Cons: "The comfort on the seats. they where like worn out."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Crew was not helpful, too slow for this type of service :("
Pros: "-free movies of good quality -good customer service and attention in checking in. -Good breakfast -comfortable seats"
Cons: "The size of the seats no leg room."
Pros: "Food, seats, entertaiment, customer service"
Cons: "The baggage took almost half hour to come out, I missed my car in the rental because of that."
Pros: "the whole crew."
Pros: "I fly avianca often and their service sometimes very, this particular time the crew was very professional and polite. We did good timing, but I do need to add that avianca has never been late to a fly I have taken, always on time. Food has changed, it used to be better and more generous but food in general on a plane these days is not the reason why you would enjoy flying."
Pros: "When Taca was managing it was a total disaster: Now under Avianca we experienced great courtesy from the crew, acceptable food and snacks, and prompt service. Taca took the prices to the ceiling and it was a shame to pay 900.00dls for a trip to El Salvador.to make it worst they threw peanuts and soda y our trays, which was poor second class service. It took us almost 10 years to return to Avianca/Taca. but now we are pleased. Definitely your best point is CUSTOMER SERVICE. ( pRICES STILL HIGH). tHANK YOU."
Cons: "VOLUME ON THE ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE TOO LOW, AND HARD TO UNDERSTAND BECAUSE THEY RUSH, CREW SHOULD SPEAK SLOW, PAUSED AND CLEAR ON BOTH LANGUAGES, ESPECIALLY IN ENGLISH SO TO MAKE IT UNDERSTANDABLE FOR ALL."
Pros: "It's just ok"
Pros: "The food they served for dinner was enjoyable."
Cons: "After arriving in San Salvador from San Jose, another passenger informed us that there was a flight departing for LAX at around 3:30 PM. Considering that our flight was scheduled to depart at 7:25 PM, we decided to ask the customer representative at the Avianca information desk if there were any open seats available on our flight home to LAX. She informed us that there were open seats BUT we would have to pay an extra $200 to board that flight. I have been on other airlines before and they have offered me the option to get on an earlier flight - FREE OF CHARGE. Considering I had bought my complete, round trip ticket for $435, the idea of paying an extra $200 for one leg of my journey seemed ludicrous! So I stayed the 6+ hours in El Salvador. Fast forward 6 hours and the desk agent at our gate announces that our flight is completely booked and they are offering $300 for anyone who will give up their seats. I am PISSED. Avianca knew our flight was overbooked and had the opportunity to take two passengers off the list and free up seats for the next flight! Instead, they chose to make us wait and delayed our flight. I do not understand Avianca's customer service procedures. Why would you not put my friend and I on the next flight when you know the next flight is going to be overbooked and possibly delayed? I'll I know is that if I can avoid flying with Avianca in the future, I will do it."
Pros: "It was awesome that movies and checking bags were free for the flight! That was something i did not expect:)"
Pros: "On flight home I had seat 1 c on my ticket so I went to coach to find 1c. I soon found out that 1c was business class !! It was wonderful sitting up there. My friend booked the flight and even she didn't realize 1c was business class. I had a wonderful flight back to LAX in 1c. The crew was special as well. Nelson made me feel special as well as rest of crews."

Cons: "La comida mala t el entretenimiento malo"
Pros: "Buena atención"
Cons: "Asientos incomodos"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew staff."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Pros: "Really impressive crew. They even served food and drinks on a commuter flight. Classy. I'll fly again!"
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "The same comment that Lima - San Salvador flight."
Cons: "Same that Lima - San Salvador."
Pros: "On board entertainment was perfect, nice selection of movies and series. The crew was helpfull and the food was good."

Crew was very pleasant and helpful. One flight attendant stood out: he was so sincerely nice & welcoming. As we were preparing to deplane, another flight attendant congratulated him on finishing his first week as a Delta flight attendant. He then told us this was his new second career and that he was a retired police lieutenant. Impressive.

We had to change gates 3x. Got off late. Given wrong gate info. The lines were so long I couldn’t get lunch.

Offer better food options . Even if for purchase

Everyone is doing their best, but travel sucks! Mask wearing is necessary but odious. The worst thing is the toilets on 767s are so cramped that you cannot see where the trash is without crouching down or being a pigmy, so people leave their towels by the sink!

As a silver medallion I don’t know how to request upgrade and when I call delta I have been on hold 3 times for over 2 hours each and can’t reach anyone.

Pros: "Being upgraded was a GREAT surprise !"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "The cabin was a little cool for me during at least half of the flight"
Pros: "Smooth and fast."
Cons: "Headphones should be free. Also some free food would be nice."
Pros: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Food somewhat expensive..... boarding off the plane - people with no luggage should get off first then there should be some kind of control instead of everybody just getting in the aisles trying to get their luggage and holding everybody up"
Pros: "Crew very helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "The flight was delayed almost an hour due to inclement weather in the originating city. The Delta personnel explained the situation and did all they could considering the circumstances."
Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "being on time"
Pros: "I like having the adjustable head rests."
Cons: "There was no window in the back row of seats, which was claustrophobic. The seat rows are too close together, that it was hard to focus on the movie on the seatback in front of me. My seat didn't recline at all."
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Cons: "Bring ear buds if you want to watch/listen to a movie. Delta changes for ear buds Everything else was fine"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Better customer service. Your employees should be te-trained and reminded they are in a service industry where your clients have other options to fly."
Pros: "The crew and the boarding were good"
Cons: "No food. Just unhealthy snacks"
Pros: "Everything was great. Our 4-hour flight went off without a hitch. We've flown with Delta many times and have never had any problems."
Pros: "Very comfortable, no complaints."
Cons: "People that take up more than one seat should be required to purchase two seats. The woman on the isle was over the arm Rest in my seat the entire trip. It is unfair to me. No one came to Take trash for 2 hours so we had to keep our tray tables down."
Pros: "Everything except lack of internet connection AFTER paying $19.95"
Cons: "Not getting internet after paying $19.95"
Pros: "It is good to be able to go straight to Paris without connecting."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "."
Pros: "The last time we flew Delta, we were underwhelmed. Our flight was delayed several hours and there was nothing exceptional about it when it did finally leave. That was 5 years ago, and there's been a lot of changes. There I'd now in-flight entertainment, reasonably comfortable seats, and everything was on time."
Cons: "Virtually no food options."
Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."
Pros: "My travel was booked by a third party, so they selected a flight with a 37 minute layover. We left LAX ~30+ minutes late, so I less than 5. minutes to make my connection. I'm pretty sure the connecting flight waited for us to make it and the crew on the LAX flight tried to expedite those with VERY short connection off the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "SHORT connection times and unspecified delay made for a stressful flight."
Cons: "On time, free upgrade."
Cons: "could be cheaper"
Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Pros: "Like the airplane - Boeing 757. More comfortable than the 737."
Cons: "Don't like the towel dispenser location and function. Can't find it when standing and a bunch of them come out at one time."
Pros: "direct flight from bdl to cun."
Cons: "reclining seats that doesnt give much room to person behind recliner"
Pros: "Delta could not help FAA regulations, so it was not their fault our initial flight was delayed an hour and 50 minutes. The gate agents in Missoula were fantastic in trying to help us figure out connection options to Baltimore."
Cons: "Z"
Pros: "Quick and easy boarding. The overall flight was fast so no time to get uncomfortable."
Cons: "Terrible customer service. Took two business days to respond."
Pros: "They must deliver my missing bag on top most priority."
Cons: "All four checked baggages received up to Mumbai. I handed over to domestic jet airways all four bags as per the system at Mumbai. But at the end I received only three baggages at Ahmedabad. I informed jet airways about one missing bag. They have acknowledged it and the missing bag was to arrive at Ahmedabad in the next flight. I am still waiting for the missing bag."
Pros: "The flight was calm"
Cons: "What I didn’t like is the inconviece where we had to change flight hour and aircraft and move to another one and we were delay for one all hour plus the 3 hours that we were there before the hour of departure that is really really bad"
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed, when it was time to board and take off, this was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Delayed flight. However, I know this sometimes out ot the airlines control."
Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"
Cons: "Bathrooms filthy..crew surly, no good option for food on three hour flight but cookies and pretzels."
Cons: "Again, not enough leg room. Also, our luggage did not make the connecting flight and we didn't get our bags unit the next morniing - late."
Pros: "Flights were both on time and boarded quickly. Crew was wonderful!"
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "Good do to Delta Staff"
Pros: "They held the plane for me. Due to customs and TSA, I had to run across the airport, and then a bus to the correct terminal to catch the plane. I arrived at the gate a couple of minutes after it was closed. THANKFULLY the gate agent came back (he was on the plane) and issued my seat ticket (it had been upgraded) and led me to the plane. So, didn't miss my flight, AND had a seat upgrade."
Cons: "Nothing. Despite the slight delay to allow me on board, and the loooong line on the runway, we still made it to our destination ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "on board service was nice and promptly"
Cons: "Delta continúes to use an older 757 in this 6-hour flight with cramped seats and seating arrangement in business class. I have taken this flight several times in the last 2 years and written about this issue but now doubt anybody cares about these comments. To make things worse, my seat would not recline!"
Pros: "Flight was quick, Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Plane was older with no power connections"
Pros: "Yes. Was excellent."
Pros: "Crew was excellent, one snarky attendant—sent me back to my seat, then two other folks went on to get in line for restroom. I didn’t appreciate her tone with me. Just sayin"
Cons: "The seats are not comfortable for a long flight. They light up pain on my tailbone. I sat on my neck pillow from time to time to get relief."
Cons: "Checking in was very slow - food should improve vastly !"
Pros: "the flight attendant was great, he did a very good job."
Cons: "Tuve un problema en carretera y llegué un poco tarde me dijeron que solo podía viajar pero sin equipaje y así no puedo viajar ahora me dicen que tengo que pagar penalidad que son $380.00 y eso es inaceptable porque yo me hice presente al aeropuerto. He viajado en otras aerolíneas como United"
Pros: "crew member was rude"
Cons: "Being polite"
Pros: "It was a regular trip"
Cons: "The connection trip Panama, San Francisco, very bad xq the scale in Cancun, very long without being able to get off the plane and not even water do not offer, that very bad scale, my taxi see san francisco I lost it and I had to pay it xq ya It was scheduled as well as a meeting."
Pros: "Great crew, lay-flat seats in business made for a very comfortable flight back home."
Pros: "Schedule and boarding"
Cons: "Better food"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "everything"
Cons: "Customers service, i didn't get meal the flight in. Also, i asked for seats away from the windows, and wasn't honoured."
Cons: "Bad food. Smells awful, cheap. Poor wine. Don't serve anything rather than bad food. They seem rather disorganized. Captain and copilot were okay. They landed the plane."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats feel like they are made of a composite of concrete and bent metal rods. I couldn't get comfortable in the economy plus seats on the 7 hour flight from San Francisco to Panama City, and on the return trip, I was in first class...and the seat was uncomfortable there as well. It was like sitting on a concrete park bench for 7 hours."
Pros: "The staff really helpful"
Cons: "That my ticket said my departure and arrival were a certain time and they were different with out them notifying me of the changes."
Pros: "In-flight entertainment was good and headphones offered without being asked. Blankets were placed on seats for those who wanted one."
Cons: "TSA agents at Panama Airport are the rudest people I've ever met. Ruder than TSA Agents is USA if you can believe that! I've flown out of Panama several times and they are rude every single time. Seats on plane are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Copa Airlines"
Pros: "On time Orderly process Friendly/helpful crew"
Cons: "Recent movie selection was not as robust as other airlines but decent still"
Cons: "-When I left Punta Cana I had bought 3 rum bottles at the Duty Free. I was able to carry on board these bottles, but when I arrived at Panama the Copa crew informed me I had to check my liquor. I had to throw out everything from my backpack and place the bottles in it. Copa crew managed to break my bottles."
Cons: "They said the flight was delayed by 2 hours but then decided to board all of a sudden. We somehow made it but still ended up missing our connecting flight. Food was pathetic with no vegetarian options. Groups of people were split up and not seated together. Complete mess!"
Pros: "Good food provided on plane at no extra cost. Also, you can get a glass of wine included. Staff was very courteous."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great. Extremely easy going handled everything thrown at them with great poise."
Cons: "Not Copa's fault but had the WORST family sitting behind me that allowed their young children to run up and down the 1 aisle at whim. Can't believe how they thought this was okay. Again, probably not Copa's fault, but why on earth do we have to go thru a 2nd round of security AT OUR GATE in Panama City, when we've already done it in a much more secure manner just to access the terminal? Having to give up my water before getting on the plane for a 6 hour flight makes ZERO sense. I hope this requirement is due to some stupid TSA/USA regulation and not Copa. If its the latter, please re-evaluate this."
Pros: "Some crew members were trying to their best"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The stewardess gave us a row of seats after noting that my husband and I were in two separate rows."
Pros: "Price, service, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are not very comfortable, but it was fine."
Pros: "food staff right time start"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Friendly flight crew. Quick boarding."
Cons: "No vegetarian option for dinner. Taxied for 30 minutes after landing and luggage took another 30 minutes."
Pros: "Poder dormir tranquilo porque habíamos dormido en el suelo por haber perdido el vuelo anterior, y esperar el que nos consiguió el counter de Copa, diciéndonos: "lo único que puedo hacer es no cobrarles el nuevo pasaje""
Cons: "Haber perdido el vuelo por culpa de Copa y por haber incomodado a 2 personas de edad ( mi esposa de 68 y yo de 72), sintiéndonos degradados de tener que dormir en el suelo por ser 1a vez de estar en Panamá y no disponer de dinero extra para un hotelucho."
Pros: "La atención dentro del avión, desde el Capitán que nos tuvo informados hasta las aeromozas (os) q nos brindaron bebidas y alimentos ricos, la mejor y exquisita atención!!!"
Cons: "Ya en el aeropuerto de Tocumen, Panamá, la peor organización nunca vista porque no hay suficientes letreros de las puertas (gates). Es más un Centro Comercial que Aeropuerto!! Todo mundo anda corriendo para poder encontrar su "gate". En el counter de Copa y en el Servicio al Cliente lo atienden a uno como basura por la gran cola y con gran tranquilidad le dicen a uno: "aquí cambian los -gates-a cada momento" y por eso hay que estar preguntando y viendo las incómodas pizarras electrónicas. Con mi esposa perdimos el vuelo a San Fco el 26 de dic 2017 por estar esperando en la gate del ticket. Era otra!"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Gate from arrival to connecting flight very far and almost lost my plane"
Cons: "Didn’t like the options available, reduced"
Pros: "Attended very helpful food is good"
Cons: "I didn't like I could not choose my seat."
Cons: "Disliked having to go through security again right at the gate, also was not allowed to bring drinks into the plane that I had just bought inside the airport, had to throw away or drink them immediately before boarding because of policy, have not had any problem with any other airline..."
Pros: "Movies were good."
Cons: "Copa crew at the boarding gate was non-communicative with passengers despite being 25 minutes past posted boarding time."
Cons: "TERRIBLE. Never had a worse flying experience. Was told at the first leg of the trip that there were 2 open seats on this flight but they would not reserve one for me. Mind you I booked this flight several months ago and somehow my seat got taken away from me because copa overbooked yet again. Worst customer service of all time. Was traveling with a group of 7 girls and got left behind in Panama because Copa took my seat away. Had to sit at the Panama airport for over 10 hours waiting for the next flight and arrive home at midnight. Copa would not allow access to a lounge or hotel even though they initially offered it when they said how they would take care of me if they couldn't get my seat back. Disgusted by how this airline operates."
Cons: "My first plane was delayed. Then the flight delay exceeded to where I'd miss my next connection. Then I changed flights once the connection was going to be missed and had a narrow margin to catch the newly assigned connection which was the last flight to town. The flight leaving SF was delayed to where I missed my last flight and had to stay the night in Seattle. It seems all of this could have been resolved if I could have gotten on an earlier flight, which I was trying to do since 4:00 that day. I didn't end up leaving SFO until 9:00 pm"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Meals Chatting and gossiping of crew"
Cons: "I was seated at an exist row at the window seat. The crew would not allow our row to stay seated at the exit row because she said we did not know Spanish well. Instead of finding us replacement of a window and aisle seats we had to take middle seats. She didn't even make an effort to ask if anyone would switch out. I wish airlines would train their crew to think out of the box style and practice customers service, which finds solutions and not state rules. In the end - people migrated to the exist aisle anyway (where we were seated) and made it into a bed."
Pros: "Getting off the plane"
Cons: "Biggest problem was the inappropriate advice given in Sint Maarten by Copa employees about checking bags in Panama. This caused us to have to buy a new piece of luggage to transport something that couldn't be carried through security. Apparently TSA requires additional screening beyond the normal airport security for Tocumen. For Copa employees in Sint Maarten - whose only flights are to Tocument - to not know this is absurd. There was also an incident with duplicate seating that was handled extremely poorly. I was not involved, but it occurred on an adjoining seat. I finally resolved the problem by giving up my seat. Tocumen airport is not an airport that I want to see again. The security - as indicated above - is not up to standard, the flight listings are ridiculous (6 screens all showing the same flight information and never progressing past "M" In the alphabet, way too much duty-free shopping and way too little other signage. It's off my list."
Pros: "On time!!!"
Cons: "The food needs to improve and some of the attendants need to be friendlier."
Cons: "Copa cited some airport restriction on number of people they could accommodate on the plane due to weather and how this was handled and processed by the ground crew was just terrible. This affected a number of passengers -- 30 or more, by my estimates. And it started with the leg from Panama to San Francisco not checked in automatically and getting placed on standby. The call center did not offer a suitable explanation for the airport's weather restriction. As a frequent flier on the Star Alliance, I have not seen a situation handled as poorly as this. The ground staff seem very poorly trained to handle what seems to be a frequent situation. And despite most affected travelers being there early with a layover began to resolve this only 45 min before the flight. My appetite to fly Copa from San Francisco has vastly diminished. And so has the desire to fly through Panama City, if weather is as fickle as they say it is."
Pros: "I was bumped from an overbooked Copa flight and was offered another that would get me home at 1am (rather than 3pm) or an overnight stay and a flight the next morning. Instead of trying to find a way home from the airport (a 1+ hour ride) in the middle of the night, I opted to stay in Panama overnight. Copa put me up in a very nice Sheraton in downtown Panama City with a pool, several restaurants, a casino... They gave me $20 per meal I'd be staying for (lunch, dinner, and the following breakfast), arranged a shuttle to and from the airport, and, the best part, a $1000 voucher for future flights with Copa within the next year - enough for two more round trip flights."
Cons: "Communication was minimal or false. When I checked my bag, the agent told me that I was being placed on standby because of a weight limit on the plane. She assured me that the flight wasn't full and that I would absolutely get a seat. When I got to the gate, there was minimal information available, but about 12-15 people were on standby, including two families of 4 and 5 people. The agents were ill-informed and didn't immediately explain why so many of us were on standby and whether anyone would make it on the plane, or what the other options were for those who wouldn't make it on the plane. Eventually four or five people boarded, another few got moved to a later flight, and 6 including me were put up in a hotel. Betzy, a gate agent for Copa at Tocumen, was absolutely wonderful and so helpful and informative with all of this."
Cons: "Only middle seats available; couldn't be seated next to travelling companion."
Pros: "Once I boarded the flight, everything was pretty standard. They had charging ports in the seats."
Cons: "Unlike other airlines like Delta or United, Copa doesn't ask people if they want to take a later flight for travel credit when a flight is over booked. They randomly select people who get pulled out of the boarding line, even though I already had an online boarding pass. They cite something in the fine print that says you can get kicked off a flight if you don't check in at the front desk with the gate attendants 90min. before the flight. Again, I already checked in and had a boarding pass on my phone. After getting kicked off, the service continued to be poor and they blamed those of us who got kicked off for being 'late.' All of us were there in the terminal well before boarding."
Pros: "The actual crew on the flight was great!"
Cons: "They told us we were on standby even though we were one of the first ones to check in. The ground crew was lackadaisical and somewhat off putting. We had to wait in a second security line for 30 minutes before boarding g and were not allowed to bring water purchased in the airport after security onboard."
Pros: "Everything perfect"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "In Panama City we had to go through a secondary security at the gate and had some of our belongings taken from us.. belongings that are normally allowed through security in the U.S... and because of this we had to have our fragile items put below with all the baggage and be sent to baggage claim.. which was extremely scary for us and frustrating. We were held inside the security of the airport without be allowed to leave to use the restroom, buy water or eat food."
Pros: "I like that my seat was comfortable and I had movies to watch"
Cons: "It was not clear on leaving the plain where to collect luggage"
Pros: "I missed my first flight due to faulty advertising by copa. Because they announced the flight was delayed. Then they did not want to put me on the next flight because they said it was full, but it was not. Copa representatives at sfo treated me very badly, even though I was very polite. I told them if they didnt put me on the next flight, I would miss my cruise in panama and they were still not helpful. They told me they couldn't do anything to change my flight because I booked through kayak. They ended up putting me on the next flight and I still barely arrived at my destination on time and I had to spend 150$ extra because my transport in panama had already left me. I had to walk all o er ago to see if there were any flights to panam from other airline because they didn't want to admit their mistake and put me on the next flight. I had a horrible experiences with copa on my way to panama and on my way back. Their people were unfriendly, rude and not helpful at all. They give no greetings, they lie about planes being full and my suitcases arrived cracked. Worst and most stressful flying experience I ever had!! I am still infuriated and would like some kind of reparation or action taken because I had to stay 4 extra hours at the airport, spend extra money and they gave me the most stressful experience ever while flying. Oh"

This flight was fine.

Please see previous note.

Pros: "The time and the route and seat pitch."
Cons: "Food and crew."
Pros: "Efficient well groomed staff, thoughtful amenities such as baby seat belts & toiletry kit containing toothbrushes. Palatable tasty cuisine."
Pros: "The best airline in the world!"
Cons: "Overall it was a very good experience. The crew was bad obliging and professional. The flight took off 30 minutes early from Abu Dhabi. However, it was late taking off from Heathrow. There was a delay of 1.25 hours as the ground crew took a long time to load and get the plane ready at Heathrow."
Pros: "Great crew, very friendly"
Cons: "Prior to departure, we were told to check in our carry-on luggage due to flight overbooking..... Turned out that there were lots of overhead compartments/bins were totally empty. We were not prepared for that so cluld not pack personal items accordingly"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "Six years ago, after a very bad experience with this airline, I swore never to use BA again. However, this year, because of my children, I found myself on this airline again and had a very positive experience. The flight was on time, luggage was transferred without a hitch, the food was excellent and in-flight entertainment had a great variety to choose from. The 747 provided a very steady flight experience. Personnel were reasonably helpful. Continue this kind of service - it will help you remain successful."
Pros: "Lie flat bed"
Cons: "Non-A380 plane feels very old now and in need of an overhaul. My biggest complaint was the food. On the outbound leg (SFO-LHR) I had the pasta dish which was dry and poorly cooked so on the return flight I opted for the beef dish which was ok. I thought that the pasta was just a one-off issue. When the pre-landing meal arrived, it was so bad I had to look at the menu to see what it was (pea mousse with artichoke and almonds). It was completely inedible. Finally the amenities bag consisted of hand cream, face lotion and lip balm as well as the std toothpaste, socks, eyeshades etc. in the past there were far more items in the bag. Overall it feels like BA has cut costs and I had a reasonable deal on my flight price which I was willing to pay just to have a lie flat bed. I can't imagine if I paid $5K for this flight and had the same experience. I recently flew Emirates from SFO to Dubai in business class and it was comparable to first class in BA."
Cons: "Very big delay!!!"
Cons: "seats are too small - but y'all know that!"
Pros: "Great, very comfortable, easy transatlantic flight"
Pros: "Business class seats were good & the business class section was only 50% occupied."
Cons: "My flight attendant Mike had a bad attitude rolling his eyes often. The requests were not outrageous (e.g. I asked for an add'l french roll for dinner because I was hungry) AFAIK, but he constantly had a snobby/snooty demeanor about it. The food was ok, but for the fancy presentation I would have expected better flavor."
Pros: "It was a long flight but it seemed like the crew was constantly handing out drinks or food and the food was really good. There were plenty of recent movies and TV shoes to watch on the personal video screen."
Pros: "Liked the big 380 airbus. The food and entertainment was great on the long distance flight. The Airbus seats are more comfortable than others."
Cons: "2 hour delay because they said they didn't have the equipment to back the plane out of the maintenance hanger. Really? - at one of the big airports of Europe, they didn't have a tug vehicle."
Pros: "overall the flight was smooth. they had a video about collecting leftover coins, but but no one came by to collect, and no information as to where to leave your donation, so i just took my envelope and euros with me. price is the only reason I flew British airways again. If I could afford a better ticket I would fly a better airline."
Cons: "the armrest between the seats did not go up all the way. the storage area next to the window seat was dirty on the inside with food crumbs. after the recent news about bed bugs, i was uneasy on the flight. the actual flight was smooth, some turbulence but not the worst. they have absolutely the worst food ever. i have no idea what the awful purple stuff is, but they really should get rid of it. it is really unappetizing by the look of it. the carpet was coming loose in a number of places, just in our seat area. how long would it take to put some tacks in, or even some tape? bathroom was nasty and the sink was clogged.and full of water"
Pros: "We could tell upon boarding that the crew was focused on making our fight of 10 hours as pleasant as they could. They got along well together, which aided in providing excellent coordinated care to the passengers. Not an hour passed without being offered food, drinks, snacks, drinks, and more food. Even a time delay at take off due of a passenger leaving passport in the terminal was made up mid flight, for an ontime arrival in SFO. Would definitely look to British Airways for my next European trip."
Pros: "Entertainment options were varied and good."
Cons: "The Airbus seating in the tourist section is terrible. The seats are very close together, making it very difficult to get in and out, particularly if the person in front of you puts the seat back. On long flights we like to get up and move around a few times, and not only is it hard to get out of our seats to do this, there is little room to walk or stop to stretch. Heathrow London is tolerable if one is going to London, but as a place to change planes, it's exhausting. The various walks feel like mazes, and going from one terminal to another, even by tram, is time-consuming and tiring. We fly to Europe often, but we will try to avoid both British Airways (Airbuses, at least) and Heathrow."
Pros: "Quickly loaded full, huge plane. Excellent demeanor from stewards. Seats very comfortable in econ class. Were as on time as they could be. Superfast deplaning. Couldn't be happier."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Cons: "the only hard part was the boarding in London, very hard to hear the boarding directions. Kind of chaotic. BUT it all worked out"
Pros: "very friendly and efficient crew"
Cons: "mediocre food, chaotic boarding area"
Cons: "For the 2nd time, neither me or my husband got our food choice...it has happened everytime we have flown. And we purchased full fare business class seats! I can understand once and maybe for one of us but it has happened EVERY time. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I sadly left my laptop onboard and I called the number for SFO BA Lost and Found for 48 hours....every 20 minutes. NO ONE answered and no one returned my messages. I finally had to drive back to the airport to talk to a human....a 5 hr round trip. No laptop turned in and it didn't turn back up in London. So clearly, cleaning crew stole it. That in its own right is a problem but NO ONE returning my calls. Completely unacceptable. I got the duty manager's email and emailed him TWICE over TWO days before he returned my email. I highly doubt I will fly BA again, I'm afraid."
Pros: "The air plane ran out of fuel we had to divert to San Jose we waited two hours because of weather and because the paperwork had the wrong pilots name so they wouldn't let the plane fly. Therefore we waited in the airport all night because neither British airways or American Airlines would help us We waited here all night with no sleep no one would give us a hotel or a meal we have now will be getting into London 24 hours later than planned and we will be out about $1000 in hotels in two hours we had booked that were non-cancelable . Multiple phone calls to British airline Waze and to American Airlines for all of the helpful"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "Wasn't allowed to check in prior to flight and got 2 middle seats on a A380"
Cons: "The lady at the check in counter changed the seat I paid to reserve from the front to the back of the plane without informing me"
Pros: "Entrees were OK"
Cons: "Not nearly enough snacks. They were pretty much out in business class half way through the flight"
Pros: "We arrived safely at our destination. Our bags arrived at our destination. Plenty of room in the overhead compartment. Due to a security snafu unrelated to the airline, we arrived at the gate after boarding was over but the gate crew were gracious and welcoming and let us board. The male flight attendant was quite nice. The entertainment screen choices were decent, and the hand-held controller was a great improvement over the touch-screen variety. There were multiple lavatories available. There was a decent amount of space by the lavatories that we could use for stretching and exercising. The wrap they gave us for high tea was pretty good."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped. I was sitting on the right next to the window, and there was no room for me to extend my right leg while facing forward; I had to twist to my left and extend my legs under the middle seat in front of me (fortunately my wife was next to me so I could do this). In addition, the passenger seated in front of me decided to recline his seat, nearly knocking over my drinks in the process, which left me with very little usable space. I haven't ever felt that cramped on an international flight. The main meal was very low quality. I had the pasta and it was quite awful; the sides were quite bad, as well. One of the female flight attendants was rather testy and unpleasant throughout the flight. She, and another female flight attendant, seemed put out when passengers asked questions about the food offerings, as though we should already have known what was being served. One passenger had just woken up and seemed confused and the flight attendant was quite impatient with him. The flight attendants were quite stingy with the water and only poured out a little bit at a time; they also came very infrequently, which meant that we had to keep pressing the call button to ask for more (which made us feel bad about bothering them). They would not give us a whole bottle of water, saying that there was not enough, but did, when we asked, provide multiple plastic cups of water at a time, which just seemed wasteful (of cups, not water). The timing of drink service was also perplexing: they did not offer drinks at least 45 minutes before or after bringing the boxes of salty "movie snacks"."
Pros: "This was my first time on an Airbus A380 and I must say that I'm still in awe of how an aircraft this large can be so quiet and smooth, let alone get in the air. Boarding was smooth. Entertainment was great and the food (depending on what you got) was okay. The inflight crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "Economy seats are very uncomfortable. I am 6'4 and there isn't that much space. It's even worse when you have a kid sitting in front with his seat reclined all the way back - so the little room I had to start with became even worse. Not to mention he kept rocking his chair back in forth, passed gas about 5 times, felt the need to stretch his arm behind him 3 times so his hand was blocking my screen. I really never got comfortable in my seat during the 11 hour flight. For a plane this large, i would of expected a little bit more comfort, especially when I felt it on AA 777"
Cons: "So jammed in the damn airplane you couldn't move!!! Stop the caring about the money so much and start getting back to customer service. What a concept"
Pros: "Food and Drink were good!"
Cons: "My husband and I weren't seated together. No matter how we try to change or ask for it even before check-in we couldn't change our seat locations. I am 5 months pregnant and it was not comfortable not having husband close to me, when in case of emergency I need something and he is not able to help right away."
Pros: "The food and entertainment met our expectations. The crew was attentive and provided good service throughout our flight."
Cons: "I prepaid for 3 seats in the front row of a coach section according to the diagram provided when I paid $75 per seat to reserve them. If I had known we would be placed back a row and not able to be more comfortable I would not have paid that fee. I do feel as though I was scammed for the $225 for reserving the seats."
Pros: "BA crew was amazing--friendly, courteous, helpful. There was always plenty of food--most of it good, and they certainly kept us hydrated with trays of juice. Free everything: wine, movies, music, etc"
Cons: "There was nothing different that could have been done. We had a 5 hour layover after our flight from Shannon. That was ok because we ate, shopped and generally used the time. But we were 1/1/2 hours late taking off, then had to wait to land because we were out of order for the gates. It turned into a 23 hour day."
Pros: "Crew and ground personnel extremely polite and helpful. Good entertainment selection. And there's room for everybody's carry-on! Comfortable airplane even on coach, besides the 2 sore points on the "don't like" pane."
Cons: "Airbus A380, so boarding and de-boarding took some time. Aircraft interiors are made per airline requirements, not simply by aircraft manufacturer. On an airplane that will always be use on long haul routes I won't expect the usual non-really-reclinable last row of seats. Moreover, the armrest does not disappear between seats when moved upwards, it goes up only 45 degrees. Quite a nuisance traveling with your s.o. or children if you want to lean on each other."
Pros: "Fantastic service and entertainment. One of my best flights in years."
Cons: "1st service was good. Second just ok."
Pros: "A very long flight but decent food, good entertainment and leg room surprisingly not bad"
Pros: "-Crew was very attentive to the passenger who needed medical attention. -Captain spoke clearly and slowly. All crew members were very professional. -Cleaner and bigger WC rooms than most planes I've been on which is always a plus."
Cons: "-Food was mostly bland (e.g. vegetarian lasagna), overly seasoned (e.g. caramel/chocolate pudding dessert) or just not quite good (e.g. cole slaw). Lots of room for improvement here. Thank goodness I'd packed some snacks while we were still in Barcelona. -The earbuds wasn't very good in comparison to other in-flight earbuds I've used from other airlines. Sometimes staticky, noise cancellation was low, and wasn't as comfortable to wear."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The meals are very high in carbohydrates, much of which I and others cannot eat. Please provide healthier choices for all passengers such as fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese and nuts."
Pros: "Seats were cushioned and comfortable, entertainment screens were crisp and colorful, restrooms stayed clean and maintained throughout flight."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great with very good movie selections. The food was not as bad as I thought it'd be."
Cons: "Crew members came off as a bit racist and weren't nice at all. One of the flight attendants spilled liquid from my cup and didn't even apologize. Instead she blamed me for stacking stuff with my cup"
Pros: "Food Movie selection Flight attendants"
Cons: "Nothing: everything was beyond expectations"
Pros: "The in-flight food was good"
Cons: "Not being able to select seating for free at time of ticket purchase"
Pros: "entertainment crew comfort"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "NOT A DAMN THING"
Cons: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on on this flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). THIS WAS A BARE BONES PLANE> We will NEVER use KAYAK again."
Cons: "They ran out of food option so at a certain point the only option was mushroom risotto. Also my husban ordered a lactose free meal which he received but all the other snacks and meals on the flight included some type of lactose product."
Pros: "Helpful staff at BA Heathrow and crew onboard BA287. Great luggage delivery speed at SFO relative to other cities recently visited."
Cons: "Lost my wife's reservation for return trip. Thus, lost the extra luggage reservation and payment as well. Seems Aer Lingus failed to input her ticket properly into BA system. That's what BA claimed, anyway. It had been a mystery as to why we could not check in on line so we knew something was wrong. Could not easily pick up phone to correct while in UK. FINALLY, BECAUSE OF LATE CHECKIN, SEATS WERE MIDDLE MIDDLE in a giant airbus jet and quite a bit less desirable than we usually get by checking in early and arriving early. Overall a disappointment, tho we arrived safely and nearly on time."
Cons: "Most uncomfortable 6 hour flight I've ever taken. No food or snacks served whatsoever, no entertainment options, flight attendants were curt, not even pillows. This would be OK for a shorter flight, but for 6 hours is ridiculous. This was worse than even the cheapest economy carrier. American Airlines bad service is definitely not what i was expecting booking a flight through British airways, which is consistently top- notch."
Pros: "Overall it was good. Food and service were great. While in the air, this is one of the quietest flights I've been on. I was impressed with the food compared to other flights I have been on and I felt that there was way way more space in a normally priced seat."
Cons: "Take off and landing were a bit rough. Since there are so many people on this plane boarding can be a bit of a nightmare. Overall good. Slight delay but not bad."
Pros: "Plenty of space on Airbus"
Cons: "Crew didn't address complaints, loud party like atmosphere for crew without regard for passengers. The Airbus wobbles when it hits turbulent air, which makes air sickness common."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and friendly, food was decent, good selection of new movies on board"
Cons: "The plane was delayed, boarding was slow"
