I like direct flights and the flight attendants were attentive when passengers had any issues. The bathrooms were cleaned."
Cons: "There was not anything negative that I experienced on my recent flight to El Salvador."
Cons: "I find my luggage broken, I need my luggage replace. I was told at airport to file online I've been tryin to file a claim online on AVIANCA'S website but I was not able to find a link to follow a claim. Please help me. Thank you! Olga Noriega 202.409.4830"

Pros: "I arrived to my destination safely."
Cons: "Sound didn’t work for the sreen in headrests on my whole row. Asked if they could reset, kept being told they would, but never did. Seats are extremely uncomfortable. Butt and back hurt. No good air circulation, especially if you sit by the window. The middle seat feels it more. Lack of caring from crew unless you spoke Spanish."
Pros: "Nice employees."
Cons: "Departure delayed."
Cons: "Avianca wouldn’t let me board because gate agents couldn’t find return trip in system. Only had a week’s vacation and lost a full day to be in Costa Rica. Then had same problem going back. I’ll never book Avianca and never use kayak to.book any airline"
Pros: "Generous food and beverage. No 1st checked luggage fee."
Cons: "My nonstop flight was anything but. At the San Jose Airport I got one boarding pass, and yet was told the flight was not direct when I inquired to confirm. I did not like that I had to offload some of my belongings out of my checked luggage. This was especially inconvenient as I had to deplane in Guatamala and go through their customs and security procedure all to get on the same plane 3 not so easy to get to gates over. And me with a broken toe, you can see how this would be not fun especially because I did not have any boarding pass or other information even telling me what gate I should be boarding at. It was really a small miracle that another passenger found someone to ask and I overheard the gate #. Stressful."
Pros: "Christian the flight attendant was amazing!"
Pros: "They don't feel cheap like the USA airlines these days. Free entertainment, real food, free alcoholic drinks. Pilot gave my kids a tour of the cockpit and gave them a wings pin and a little toy airplane. Flight attendants are kind and efficient. AND they were the cheapest option. I want to always fly them if possible!"
Pros: "I love Avianca, I wish I could fly everywhere I go with them"
Cons: "They always seem to misplace my miles information. I had to get a new card even though I have traveled with them FOY MANY YEARS!!"

Pros: "Speed and punctual"
Pros: "I liked everything except the food."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian options for meals"
Cons: "My flight landed at 2:00pm, and my connecting flight boards at 1:55pm. The gate was all the way on the side of the airport and I had to go through another security checkpoint and barely made my flight."
Pros: "- boarding the plane was efficient and well organised - airline staff were friendly - when my flight was canceled I was sent to a hotel and didn't have to wait around in the airport - comfortable with plenty of room, pillows and blankets"
Cons: "- My first of two flights was canceled which was poorly communicated after waiting in a queue for two hours. I am still even now unsure as to why the flight was canceled as no one bothered to inform us as to what the reason was. - On my new connecting flight from San Salvador to Bogotá there was only two meal options (both meat) which I do not eat and was told to just take the meat out of the meal as there was no other options. Would have been helpful to have known before the flight so I could have bought my own food to take on the plane. - The charging points on the back of the seat were inactive"
Cons: "I think the Salvadoran crew is better than the Costa Rica crew"
Pros: "Plane is fine"
Cons: "They change the flight at the last minute so they can acomodate their own staff.."

Pros: "There was nothing exceptional on Avianca's service on this service."
Cons: "Flight was delayed to perform some last minute maintenance work and crew wasn't very organized during the boarding procedures."
Pros: "Duration Of The Flight. But TACA Airlines is very BAD has to be the Oldest Fleet of Airplanes I've seen in a Long Time. I Guess TACA handles the flights from El Salvador to SFO."
Cons: "A 5+ hour flight the planes they use from El Salvador to San Francisco has NO Entertainment, NO USB Charging outlet and Meal was Horrible. You can really see the difference between an Avianca Flight and TACA flight'"
Cons: "One of my suitcases didn't make it to my final destination and was found still in Bogota a day later making my arrival home very stressful and upsetting. I had medicine and important items in my suitcase and could only retrieve them 2 days later."

Cons: "massive delay in the counter"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "To wait"
Pros: "It is super comfortable and the entertainment is great!"
Cons: "The food didn't taste great. It seems to be a general problem with Avianca pilots but usually the take-off and landings are bad. You will usually hear people say "aaaaah" during landing just because the pilots depart waaay to fast."
Pros: "Staff was nice. Relatively comfortable, good movie selection"
Cons: "I'm vegetarian, only ham and cheese sandwich"
Pros: "Viajo mucho y Avianca es mi aerolinea preferida, las asistentes de vuelo mientras no sean de Costa Rica, son muy amables, las costarricenses son muy pedantes y groceras y las Colombianas las mejores, lindas, amables, pacientes."

Lots of delays. Armrests are not big enough for two people.

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The economy seats in an A321 are uncomfortable and there is very limited legroom."
Cons: "I had a flight with a connection starting at 6 PM on a Monday. At 5 AM the day of the flight I received notification that the first flight would be delayed, making connection impossible, I was prompted to select another flight to arrive to my destination. I chose a flight with a connection staring at 7 PM. Upon getting on the first flight we began to prepare for takeoff. After about 30 minutes the pilot notified us that we would be delayed 40 minutes because we had nowhere to land at my connection airport. I realized at that point that I would possibly miss my connection, which was scheduled at 10:20 PM. However, I did arrive at the connection airport around 9:40 PM which would have given just enough time to arrive at the connection gate. Unfortunately, upon arrival to the connection airport the pilot informed us that we would have no gate to de-board the plane. The pilot stated that all connections "were aware of our delay" and gave us the gates for each connection. I got off the plane at 10:15 PM and ran to my connection gate arriving exactly at 10:20. The gate attendants informed me that my flight had left, my bags were on the way to my destination city and that I would need to spend the night in the connection city. The attendants, appeared disinterested and impolite but upon prompting provided us with a hotel voucher for the night. The next day we arrived at the airport 2 hours before boarding and waited at the gate. When it was near the time for departure we were informed that the plane had been downgraded and requests were made for some to give up their seats for a later flight or check carryon bags to make room for other passengers. While some lined up to give up their seats and bags, those who chose to remain on the original flight were forced to wait before boarding the plane. We were then told that we would have to wait until the pilot and crew arrived before boarding. Scheduled departure time was 5:46 PM but the time got pushed back until we boarded around 6:30, departure was rescheduled to 6:50 PM. We boarded the plane and waited for departure but a few minutes later the pilot informed us that "he just got here" and that there were mechanical problems that would cause further delay. After an hour we were informed that the plane was not able to fly and instructed to go to another gate for another plane. Departure time got rescheduled to 8:30 PM. The plane departed after 9 PM and arrived at 10:30 PM for a 5:46 PM scheduled departure."
Cons: "we boarded on time and were on tarmac for over an hour and a half with no explanation, no beverages."

Pros: "Reliable Airline - on time - kept up to date on flight timing - Great crews."
Cons: "Good stuff."

Pros: "Internet access. Waiting area at JFK with charging stations for every seat and a tablet to order food & drink."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by an hour. No explanation given"
Cons: "It took longer to get from nyc to dc that it did Venice to NYC. Horrible....got home at 2am"
Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"
Cons: "Seats could’ve been assigned ahead of time"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No idea why there was over a two hour delay."
Pros: "We were able to fly standby on our original 2:30p flight but had to return to DCA for checked baggages later that day"
Cons: "Connecting flight from JFK to DCA was moved from approx 2:30p to nearly 8p, making our layover 7+ hours, as opposed to 1-2 hours. No reason for this change was provided. Delta crew member in JFK was rude and unhelpful. The second agent (who ultimately booked our standby tickets for our original connecting flight) was more pleasant."
Pros: "The crew onboard was very good."
Cons: "My 4 year old daughter and I were not seated together and I was told that a 4year old could not sit alone yet Delta refused to move anyone. Instead I had to get on board and beg someone to please wait h seats with us."
Pros: "The service, free entertainment."
Pros: "Early boarding for Seniors"
Cons: "Limited food"
Pros: "The efficiency of having my boarding pass on my phone (Apple Wallet). The Kayak and Delta apps streamlined perfectly and I was able to check in and pay for luggage through Kayak! I just need to do better at checking my phone due to both apps sending me updates about flight delays and luggage locations"
Cons: "Lack of space from being confined to the middle seat but the passengers next to me were nice and the plane ride was over before I realized it."
Cons: "There was no rhyme nor reason for who boarded first"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "AC was not working properly and it was very hot and miserable trip"
Cons: "There really needs to be a way the airlines can better make seating assignments. I was in a window seat and the woman in the middle seat was so large that her arms took all of the arm rest and some of my seat area. Even crossing my arms I was unable to not have her arm up against me."
Pros: "Arrived safely"
Cons: "Crew arrived late from Buffalo (?!?!) so our 7:59 flight didn’t start boarding until very close to that time. That delay, as Delta well knows, dominoed into LGA’s ATC issues and resulted in an arrival at DCA well after our scheduled arrival."
Pros: "Thanks to Angel in the ATL airport who helped ensure I had a more comfortable flight. He was very kind and I appreciated his help."
Cons: "On time, free upgrade."
Pros: "The seats."
Cons: "In typical Delta fashion they boarded, deplane, board it again and then beat the plane. Blamed it on weather even though a full maintenance crew was beneath the plane in the entire time and, for the coup de gras moved a new flight an hour later 30 gate down. Classic Delta hopefully they'll be out of business in a year"
Pros: "Good abording"
Cons: "problems with seating assignment"
Cons: "Disgusting smell to urine and else. It was a two-hour bad experience"
Pros: "I will always fly Delta. I have tried other airlines and they don't conmpare to Delta's service"
Pros: "The movie availability was very much appreciated."
Cons: "Although my TSA Pre check number was on my flight coming into Atlanta, it wss not on my fight leaving Atlanta. That caused me to arrive at my gate 5 mins before boarding time and prevented me from having time to eat breakfast before my flight."
Cons: "Being late"
Pros: "Service of all the flight staff, smooth flight, and early arrival. Staff was very courteous and helpful"
Cons: "Nothing really. It was an uneventful flight with good service"
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: "The plane was late to JFK and then we had to wait for them to deboard and prepare for us to get one. Now we are in DCA and we can’t even get to our gate for another 10 mins"
Pros: "Allowed Pre boarding of infant (which American no longer does), complimentary food, entertainment on domestic flight, and friendly staff. Delta is upping the game!"
Cons: "Flight was late by almost 2 hours!!!"
Pros: "Flight"
Cons: "no access to sky club"
Pros: "Good food and entertainment choices on board. Little to no feedback from captain regarding inflight turbulence."
Cons: "Getting through security at the LAX Delta Terminal 2 was chaotic and the slowest I have ever encountered. There were two lines which moved at very different speeds. My husband got through his line 15min before I was finished in the other line. One line required iPads to be other, the other didn't. Something was seriously wrong with how things were being handled. Bathrooms onboard were a pigstie."
Pros: "It was on time"
Cons: "Too short of a layover in Atlanta"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cost of the ticket"
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."
Cons: "Delayed"
Cons: "Cancelled my flight then re-booked me for the next day; was able to then find a flight same day but 7 hours later. That then was delayed another 4 hours and I had to buy a rental car to drive home instead. Thus far they have been unresponsive in getting me a refund for my travel. Don't fly Delta."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "On time...great service!"
Cons: "Seats were a bit narrow."
Pros: "delayed. equipment failure."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "plane left on time"
Cons: "seats were too close, luggage was delayed,"
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: "Nothing"
Cons: "Check in was slow. Boarding was disorganized - half the plane was business class or so-called preferred status. Ground staff were unhelpful"
Cons: "Everything it’s fine"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Baggage return was slow."
Pros: "Loved the leg room in the emergency seat row"
Cons: "Wider seats in economy"
Cons: "Late to leave gate/ cramped"
Pros: "Everything!!!"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "delay"
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: "We were 7 people traveling together with 4 kids and the system gave us the emergency exit seats, the check in took over one hour (both ways) once inside I have to ask passengers to change seats with my kids because the crew didn’t do it"
Cons: "Nothing, plane is old."
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 ...."
Cons: "The flight from Panama City to Washington, DC didn't have the personal television screens."
Pros: "They offer food and free alcohol. This is not common any longer in the US."
Cons: "In Panama City during a layover, we had to go through security a second time."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine. Good entertainment, in seat options and decent food."
Cons: "There is a second security check point right before you enter the gate area and you can't take any food or drink it which includes water. That made for a long wait with nothing to drink and once on board there was no extra water service."
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: "2 free bags, free food d, free booze"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight was safe and comfortable."
Cons: "The connection flight was delayed, the gate at our connection was switched (meaning we had to go through security 2 extra times), neither flight had individual TV screens, and a vegetarian option was not available by default-as it had been on the flight there."
Pros: "Timeliness, food, good price for a non-stop flight."
Cons: "Not allowed to bring full water bottles on flights from Panama and crew didn't provide enough water service during flight."
Pros: "The crew was super polite!"
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."
Pros: "Excellente attention flying, very friendly, very nice and clean inside the airplanes."
Cons: "Need more personal at the counters servicing people when checking in at the airport in Panama."
Pros: "no comments"
Cons: "I was soprice that we did not have any piows or blankets for this trip."
Cons: "The boarding and departure took extremely long. I understand that there was a Power outage the day prior to this flight and that this cause major delays and issues throughout the following days."
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."
Pros: "We made it on time"
Cons: "The food was not very good, the crew can offer water more often"
Pros: "All the way it should be!"
Cons: "El aeropuerto de Panamá e el peor que he visitado en mi vida"
Pros: "The flight & the attendants were all great - the food was good & the entertainment was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by almost an 1 hr. waiting for the airport to load the luggage. I could not understand the person making the announcements on the plane. It was garbled & so none of us really knew what he said on any of his announcements, We arrived at D.C. & we did not get our luggage. They said at the D.C. airport we would receive an email within 24 hours regarding our luggage. We didn't. They gave us a # to call - no one answered that #. We were supposed to get an email with our case # - we didn't. We were told on the plane we would get a bag of necessities - but we didn't. My husband had to keep calling different #'s to try to get ahold of someone to tell them about our luggage."
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"
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."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
Cons: "The online booking company was confusing and not friendly"
Cons: "There needs to be some snack options in business class after the light meal."
Pros: "The crew was extremely friendly, one of the friendlier crews I've flown with lately. Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Planes are old and outdated, no entertainment for medium/longer-haul flights"
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.."
Cons: "Additional security check at the gate in Panama is not run very professionally or securely and is a hassle."

Staff very friendly and attentive. Boarding and landing all went really smoothly.

Pros: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "If flight took place"

Pros: "Premium Economy was very comfortable"
Cons: "Food was delivered in a hurry just after we embarked A bit more relaxed would have been better"
Pros: "Crew and pilot great."
Cons: "Toilet was dirty."
Pros: "Flight space was quite empty in my section so that was AMAZING. Crew was lovely and helped with a few requests for myself and travel companions. Very good selection on tv and movies and the refurbished aircraft was very comfortable for me on this flight. Probably helps having seat to self."
Cons: "Nothing on this occasion"
Pros: "Problems started at check in and it went downhill from there"
Cons: "Customer service mostly"
Cons: "For a major carrier in Europe we expected more. Be Be prepared to pay for food and even a drink on a domestic flight. Seats tiny barely any leg room. Crew members appeared to be having a bad day not many welcoming smiles. I guess if you had to budget just pay use one of the other carriers"
Cons: "Transit time should be calculated reasonably."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Having to take a bus from the plane to the terminal. This would make me fly via Amsterdam to the US to avoid these connections"
Pros: "British airways and the customer service"
Cons: "The fact that I was use inbooked a premium economy ticket on Kayak and when I got there it was an economy ticket."
Pros: "City airport is very convenient from East London. Flight is only 40 minutes"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable,but was very cold around 1h after start. The fan should be regulated by passengers.The crew was nice. I liked the movies"
Cons: "Dinner was not good not tasty.no free snacks"
Pros: "Plane was much more comfortable than the old AA plane we flew to Lisbon. Crew was excellent. First meal was good. I was in window seat, and enjoyed the side bin with also gave armrest space."
Cons: "Second meal of "hot pocket" type of thing was poor. Plan took off late due to security checks"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Inflight meals and entertainment seat pitch"
Cons: "The seats rows are too close - high density. The flight was late."
Cons: "Our baggage was delayed coming off the plane in Seattle and getting to the carousel. When we were finally able to claim our baggage in customs, the gate said it was too late to re-check them through to Seattle, so they had to re-book us for a later flight. So after 13 hours of travel (with a toddler, which makes everything harder), we had to wait an unexpected 3 hours at Seatac to board a plane home. It was terrible. The BA representative at the baggage claim was incredibly dismissive and rude to everyone. It really was miserable."
Pros: "There was no wheel chair provided for the passenger even though requested for one in london"
Pros: "very pleasant attendants."
Cons: "a bit crammed."
Cons: "Poor service and communication"
Pros: "Nothing - even in so called Club Europe."
Cons: "Cheapness and shabbiness in every respect. A sad downward spiral for a once impressive airline."
Pros: "Very smooth and fast."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The crew were friendly, professional and extremely pleasant."
Cons: "I’m not a fan of the constant PA’s during the descent. Playing a video about arrival procedures for an airport is extremely superfluous. Nobody pays attention and you just have to follow the signs when you get there."
Cons: "Unfortunately, I couldn't travel as I was told to bring the credit card used in the booking of my flight. This was not explained in the booking option. Thus I would need a refund on my flight ticket."
Pros: "The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. Everything worked perfectly. I had a great experience travelling with British Airways"
Pros: "Fast Boarding. Easy Airport"
Cons: "Very Rude & Disrespectful Crew"
Pros: "Just perfect ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"
Cons: "Nothing wrong"
Cons: "Nothing."
Cons: "Had to pay for a cup of coffee - this is a free service in the US so was surprised when asked for a cc."
Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee! WOW. they charge and nickle and dime you to death. I had to buy a seat to be guaranteed to sit next to my wife. the base price for the flight was reasonable but then they added extra charges that were almost 1/2 more. the baggage charge was high. If I have my choice would not fly BA again."
Pros: "Liked the dinner. Loved the dessert (chocolate cake )"
Cons: "Didnt like the breakfast. Omelette eggs too greasy aswell as the rest of food. Coffee wasnt good either"
Cons: "The flight was an hour late"
Pros: "Good flight, bit bumpy due to weather."
Cons: "4-hour delay for a 40minute flight"
Pros: "Excellent food and service."
Cons: "Seats were too tight on the A380."
Cons: "old plane. Bad food. Old entertainment system and poor selection"
Pros: "Overall quick, easy and event free...just as flights should be."
Cons: "Plane got a little hot sitting at the gate and our seats were the only ones that didn't have air vents."
Pros: "I appreciated the free upgrade to an empty emergency row."
Cons: "A complimentary drink was not offered. I had to pay for my entire meal including the drink, because no snack or drink was provided."
Cons: "Nothing special ti say except what already said on the flight in about the fact that now you have to pay for every single thing and ONLY tap water is free."
Cons: "The seats are so close together the seats are actually painful. I'm 6 ft tall and my boyfriend is 6 3". A very short lady in front of us leaned all the way back and caused such major discomfort my boyfriend had to push her forward. She then complained even tho she visibly had a lot of space. We requested an upgrade from gate crew and flight crew upon boarding but were told the flight was full even though multiple seats were available. Will not fly British Airways again."
Cons: "crew told my husband the flight was too full and asked if he would leave it with her and he would get it after the flight. She ended up checking it and told him he had to get it in baggage claim. This flight was already 1.5 hours delayed and we had a connecting flight from London to US that left in 30 minutes. We were not able to go to baggage claim to get the luggage. We then found out she never tagged it and they had no way of linking it with him."
Pros: "I liked the movies and the entertainments on the plane."
Cons: "People like old when it comes to history, traditions, restaurants etc. But when it comes to travel and technology people don't. Two of my friend's entertainment monitors were broken, bugs with the program all the time, no wifi on board. Compared to other airlines BA was quite disappointing."
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Pros: "Ran on time"
Cons: "Boarding via the tarmac; check-in staff did not assign a seat for ongoing flight legs, desp"
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "Everything went as well as expected. Nothing out of the ordinary."
Cons: "No response from stewardess when I handed her the envelope with Money for the BA children's program. I kinda expected a thank you. But then I guess God wants us to give without expecting anything in return."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the crew got out of he way when I went to the bathroom."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic, everyone ran to board and it wasn't clear who could board when, there was no wifi on the plane, the "screens in the headrest" were not functioning, and the ones that were were SO OLD that you could see the lines on the screen where you were supposed to touch, entertainment was terrible, and we sat on the runway for over three hours because "the left engine wasnt starting" only to discover two hours later that a latch was frozen which is why it didn't start, so they defrosted it and then we flew. WTF?!"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and they provided great service."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane had some technical problems so they let us go inside the plane and we had to sit there for 3 hours while they were fixing licking gas situation. Flight was ok but we got food only once."
Pros: "Crew friendly and attentive."
Cons: "Leg room worse than Economy."
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Good crew and service"
Cons: "Tough landing at DC but it was the wind"
Cons: "30 min to de-ice an E170? Why?"
Pros: "My crew was very attentive"
Pros: "Awesome Customer Service"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight was short."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "Not being delayed for 6 hours would’ve been better."
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "Weather delay 5 hours"
Cons: "AA provided me NO assistance when my flight was cancelled and I had to make arrangements on my own, which caused me to incur in extra expending."
Cons: "It was hot"
Pros: "Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Wifi that actually worked."
Cons: "O prematurely had to check my carry on when there was room to bring it on board with me"
Cons: "Excelente"
Pros: "Free movies on the included display and electric outlets are top notch."
Cons: "I wish they would offer food service more in the middle as we just ate before boarding."
Pros: "All the crew were pleasant"
Cons: "There was a delay but we weren’t well informed"
Cons: "Better seat cushions! There is not much padding & the seats get really hard."
Cons: "The plane was so hot temperature wise. I was literally sweating in a T-shirt"
Pros: "Their CRJ was very comfortable. More comfortable and modern than what I’ve seen on a lot of Skywest/delta connection flights. Crew was great"
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Friendliness of gate staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The flight to Washington was fine. It was the flight back that I have issues with."
Cons: "My issue with flying back American is that...I didn't. They boarded us on the plane, moved down the tarmac, and then checked to see that we had a brake problem. They took our plane out of service (which I get, I would want brakes before takeoff), but then they never updated us on our status, until I physically went to the counter to ask an hour later. This is when they informed me that the flight was cancelled and we were rebooked on the 9pm flight (Mind you, this is 12:30p and I have a 2 year old with me). Luckily, I was able to book JetBlue and get home earlier (8:00pm)"
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Pros: "Nice modern plane. Even though the flight was delayed, we ended up boarding earlier than expected and arrived pretty close to our original expected arrival time."
Cons: "The crew was nice and everything, but they weren't very good at making announcements on the loudspeaker. You could tell they didn't really know what they were saying or haven't practiced. One lady was trying to make a sales pitch for a new master card and you could tell she was reading and there were long pauses. My sense is that when using the loudspeaker to talk to the entire flight, one should be practiced and know what they're saying and communicate quickly and efficiently. Don't mean to be critical, but it's something that I noticed that could be improved."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."
Pros: "Shabby Cramped"
Cons: "Cramped Uncomfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours- weather related, but at other destinations- so this flight had to wait to be rescheduled. Also they weren't able to give any idea when the flight would be boarding- they just kept sending text alerts that it was delayed another half hour and no updates were listed on the screens. When the flight finally left, after I had been waiting for over 5 hours, we were told that they would be flying low, so there would be no beverage service. It would be nice in these situations to simply have bottled water to pass out quickly, or make the announcement prior to boarding so people would be able to bring their own beverages."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Pros: "The flight was fine, no complaints from JFK to DCA, luckily at JFK they gave us priority check-in forms to help us skip a few lines to get through faster for our connecting flight to DCA."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "Boarding is terrible at DCA for commuter flights. You get on a bus packed in like sardines and the stand there for 15 minutes."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Pros: "The quick boarding and kind flight attendants"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline. Somewhat nauseous smell at first."
Pros: "Bought a ticket from Alaska Air, but got farmed out to American, If I wanted to fly in American, I would have bought a ticket from them. This also made checking in a lot more confusing..."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Pilot did a great job getting here, but gate was blocked by a fuel truck and sat on the tarmac for an extra 20 minutes! Pilot has now asked for a tug to pull us in."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "I was not able to seat with my son, I was not very happy about it."
Pros: "Excellent aircraft. EJR190. Not big but very comfortable aircraft. AA has decided to give actual leg room. Nice experience even in the back of the aircraft."
Cons: "AA needs to work on boarding logistics at LaGuardia. It's confusing to have to shuttle across the tarmac to another terminal. If the flight times had been closer I would not have arrived in time to board."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Pros: "food"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked. I almost didn't make it home."
Cons: "No tv/movies."
Pros: "Easy connections"
Pros: "Because our plane sat on the tar mat in both White Plains and D.C. for over 40 minutes after an hour delay, we missed our connection to Knoxville. AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again."
Cons: "Because our plane sat on the tar mat in both White Plains and D.C. for over 40 minutes after an hour delay, we missed our connection to Knoxville. AA refused to offer any assistance with a hotel or rental car and literally ran through their script versus showing any empathy. Terrible experience and will never fly AA again"
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Cons: "Worse customer service ever inside and outside the plane. Try he daughter was traveling with a 3 year old and they didn't want to change their seats together are u kidding me my daughter had to be asking in the plane but they did it for other people."
Pros: "All great."
Pros: "Landed safely."
Cons: "100 degree plans before taking off for mechanical reasons. Upon arrival it looked like a refugee camp in baggage claim area. A bunch of bags unclaimed scattered about. The screen said carousel 12 and confirmed it with local reps and then after waiting for a while some passenger says "if you're coming from Charlotte the bags are at 11, that's where I found mine". The miracle of flight is a miracle. I rarely complain but more often than not when flying domestically I realize how stretched the airlines are."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to see that I was seated easily before the crowd came on board."
Cons: "The cookies are ok but not very refreshing. I prefer Pepsi to Coke. Being in a wheel chair, I didn't have the option to stop at a food place to get something to eat before boarding. It was so extremely cold in the cabin."
Pros: "Having a meal on the flight in couch"
Cons: "Nothing."
