Cons: "Two hours and a half late and no updates whatsoever"
Pros: "Yes the crew was great."
Cons: "It was a short 2.5 hr flight. Jet blue provided packaged snacks and a soft drink at no additional charge. Other airlines charge for everything. A carry on and a handbag were also allowed which others don't. The seats are leather and have more room. Seems Jet Blue is the last one of those traditional airlines giving more for your money. Thank you Jet Blue ! I am sold."

Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."
Pros: "The TV options"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by one and half hour because crew members were travelling to Newark airport from other place. Flight was scheduled at 6:00 PM and Crew members were scheduled to arrive at 5:51 PM. Poor scheduling. Boarding started only after Crew member arrived. Then came the glitch in accounting for fuels filled in the aircraft."

Cons: "That we were delayed by 90 mins."
Pros: "Did not board that flight... I received emails throughout the day of departure time changes and the last email indicated that they had changed the departure time 33 minutes earlier. I was already en route for the flight when I received the email . When I got there they refused to let us boar stating that we were late!!! The attendants were very rude and not at all helpful! Instead they booked a flight for me the next day at a very early time! I lost out time and money! I had booked a hotel. I will never book any flights with Jet Blue ever again."
Cons: "The seats barely reclined it was very uncomfortable and the entertainment was not the best"
Pros: "Leg room was good, comfortable."
Cons: "A 4 hour delay with no explanation as to why. Also don't like that you don't give earbugs for the entertainment."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice despite appearing a bit overworked and frazzled."
Cons: "We were over 30 min late taking off because the pilots were late from another flight and people wouldn't listen to crew instructions to sit down. Monitors wouldn't work for entertainment. That didn't really bother me, but it was an issue for the two people sitting in my row. We had paid $40 for even more, so I was surprised when the flight attendant wouldn't give my neighbor a complimentary pillow so he could rest since the monitor wouldn't work. Flight attendant said he would need to pay $5. I feel flight attendants should be given permission to change policy based on certain circumstances."
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!"
Pros: "I didn’t die."
Cons: "The 6 hour delay. The over tired, but outright rude crew in both the airport and plane."

Cons: "Delays! That is all. Huge inconvenience. Overall it turned out okay though."
Pros: "The seats"
Cons: "The shotness of the crew and all the noise slamming around the compartments being slammed contnuously and angrily"
Cons: "None of the TVs worked on the flight. The boarding crew in the terminal was rude and very short with everyone. i had to go up multiple times to ask about my seating assignment and was ignored and then waved away multiple times. And then as boarding began I was given a seat saying they "thought i was on standby" but i never was. i was given a seat in the last row with two other people who had infants on their laps so it was a very tight fit."
Cons: "I had a great flight! No complaints! I didn’t use I flight entertainment, so I can’t recommend either way. The food was good, but I did purchase it. Hence the 4 stars."
Cons: "I wasn’t able select more channels to view and not able to see the live map to track the trip. I think it wasn’t working my."
Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable."
Cons: "Los televisores de nuestra fila no funcionaban y al llegar el vuelo tuvimos que esperar 40 minutos para poder salir del avión."
Cons: "My husband & I were in Row 5 & in last boarding group. When we got to our seats, all of the overhead bins were filled all the way back to Row 8. So, we put our suitcases up there. When we landed, we had to wait for everyone to get off the plane to be able to go back to those bins. And someone had already exited the plane with my husband’s suitcase. Their suitcase was left. We spent an hour with Suitcase Services, but could not find out who took my husband’s suitcase. (No ID inside theirs) I recommend that you board lower numbered rows first so that people in the back rows don’t take the front bins!"
Pros: "The best part of this trip was checking in.. it was a breeze.. I must say the Orlando landing was the best touchdown I've ever experienced..Smooth.."
Cons: "Let's start with getting on the airplane was like herding sheep.. When I finally got to my seat someone was in it.. And I had no place to put my carry on.. The flight was suppose to leave 9:00pm.. we didn't leave til 9:40.. The safety announcement was awful. We cudnt hear most of it.. The turbulence was scary and the noise made me put on headphones to sleep. Once it landed in Orlando the airplane traveled around the entire airport .. It took forever to get off the plane but I was so happy to get off"
Pros: "Comfy seats. Snacks. Easy boarding. Online checkin was a breeze."
Cons: "JFK security screening was slow for the volume of people. LONG queue line. Made me reconsider and apply for PreCheck to prevent future backups. Not JetBlue's fault, but JFK, like LAX and other major hubs is a labrinyth with many levels of hell to overcome. Leave ample extra time. Esp if you have checked luggage."
Cons: "my entertainment screen was messed up, no sirius xm and video programs blacked out, plus brightness control graphic would not go off screen. Flight was late, again. Piece of used chewing gum was stuck under armrest handle."
Cons: "Flight was delayed so I got an earlier flight but they did not change my luggage, so I had to wait for original flight to come in to retrieve bag"
Pros: "The person at the counter was helpful"
Cons: "My son (unaccompanied minor), had his flight departure delayed almost 4 hours. I watched the plane leave and called my mom to pick him up at 6pm, the scheduled time. She calls me panicking that the arrival time is now 8:15 and no one will tell her why there is a delay. I had to call JetBlue only to tell me "sorry, they have the wrong arrival time, he's almost there". Really?? Luckily she was planning based on my information, not theirs. If she had been 2hrs late picking him up, this would have been BAD."
Pros: "seat comfortable"
Cons: "ticket price"
Pros: "The airplane was very nice with great space between seats and the crew was nice."
Cons: "During boarding procedure, the gate used did not support the number of passengers and was a little bit messy"
Cons: "My seat. It did not recline"
Pros: "Plane was good, plane staff were good."
Cons: "Forced to move seat (whole row of us) as plane was taxiing to the runway. Just managed to squeeze bag into overhead bin, sit down, and buckle in before we took off. Don't know why we had to move - not explained. Ended up with a middle seat rather than my booked window seat. There was a curfew in Bogota, which caused the plane from Panama to Bogota to be late, thus ensuring I missed my connection. Rather than being put on the next plane, I was forced to miss not only my original one, but 2 further ones. So rather than arrive, as scheduled, at 15:15 I will arrive over 9 hours later, after midnight. Could have been handled better by Avianca."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "More available for information and resolve situation to passenger lost her connections"
Cons: "Flight delayed four hours. Missed connection. Stuck in El Salvador overnight. Informed that A representative from Avianca would meet me at the airport to take me and others to a pre-arranged hotel. Immigration will not let me pass to baggage until the Avianca representative arrives. Still waiting."
Cons: "Vegetarian Food"
Pros: "never took flight due to cancellation by airline. still have not received refund."
Pros: "Ready for long travels with my wife"
Cons: "Aborting through inspection area different airports"
Cons: "The checking process at the counter in Lima was horrible,they moved me to another flight saying that mine was delayed. Once they moved me to Alan they couldn’t check me in and send me back to Avianca, during that process they lost my suitcases. I arrived to Orlando with no clue where my suitcases where and I was traveling g with to young kids. Although I recovered my suitcases I haven’t heard a follow up."

Pros: "Good service and comfortable trip."
Cons: "Nothing went wrong."

Pros: "departure was on time, crew was very good, flight was smooth"
Cons: "food was about what you'd expect from any airline these days; we did get wine though! Six across seating in an Airbus 319 makes for limited space (but again, that's all the airlines for planes of this size)."
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "had to wait 1 hour for my baggage at Orlando airport. No choice in food"
Pros: "My first time flying on Avianca. American based carriers should take a look at Avianca’s playbook. Free hot towel given after take off, free pillow and blanket, a meal served with out a fee. Flight attendants make up and hair professionally styled, flight attendants offering to place bags in overhead bins. Customs forms handed out an hour into the flight not the last 30 minutes."
Pros: "Plane ride was smooth and on time. Entertainment was good. Lot of choices. Breakfast was just OK"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Basically the plane."
Cons: "I got a really bad customer service experience with one of the members of the crew. She answered my questions in a not polite way."

Pros: "Everything was fine."

Pros: "all the crew was extremely friendly. The meals were delicious and my vegetarian request was honored. All the flights had meals even though some of them were strange times, and a good beverage selection was also offered. The in-flight entertainment was pretty top-notch. Great ticket price though, and somehow I lucked out and had some free seats next to me in some of the flights. very friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "all the flights that I was on didn't even start boarding until about 20 minutes before the plane was supposed to take off. This resulted in all the flights I was on being around 45 minutes to an hour late taking off. The cabin size was very small, it was hard to fit my stuff in the overhead compartment. not a lot of legroom and for a 6 foot one guy, this was a bit of an issue and I had some intense leg pain from my position. for the low-cost flight that I got I did have some seemingly out-of-the-way layovers and they were also quite long. would be great to see airplanes that The option to choose a bunk bed instead of a regular seat so that you could rest on redeye flights or just take naps in general."
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "seats were unconmfortable and food was horrible"
Pros: "I am impressed! I will be booking through Avianca again!"

"The 2 hour delayed and the seats were very uncomfortable for economy"
"Appears to have been delayed to wait for other crews to get to Miami, its tough now but schedules missed count"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Nothing was mediocre about the crew or delta. The other passengers around us made a 4 1/2 hour flight feel like 8 hours of hell."
Cons: "Seats were a little dirty especially for the COVID-19 going around."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, nice staff, clean facilities"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were professional and courteous."
Cons: "Media interface system and Gogo inflight app are not synced and I could not listen to the movie I was watching. No subtitles offered for in flight movies. Someone farted before we deplaned and it was quite unpleasant. Also I wish the automatic seat assignments took my height into account."
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Pros: "The crew was one of the best I have ever experienced. They even had the flight deck wish a happy birthday to my 89 year old mother in law."
Cons: "Stop being LATE!!!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. The airplane was not stocked with the food prior to scheduled departure. It appears as though our plane had landed at 7:30 am and our departure was scheduled for 9:30am. I am struggling to understand why in two hours the plane could not be stocked with food."
Pros: "Very comfortable, great entertainment selection"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Could not get entertainment interface with my tablet to work, especially since I paid extra to do so. Could not access live TV on my seat/chair screen."
Pros: "The seat back screens."
Cons: "Completely full flight. Rough landing."
Cons: "Terminal g18 is in the worst possible place. It is right smack in the middle of a food kiosk and restuarants with the ipad tables. You can't hear any announcements and boarding is just a cluster."
Pros: "I loved flying delta comfort. I’m going to do it more often."
Cons: "6 hours late. Unacceptable."
Cons: "We had to wait at the customs for nearly 1.5hrs, then pick up our luggage, then check in again!!! We were running and got on the plane 10 mins before the departure. Super stressful!!"
Pros: "The people was relaxed and the flight attendant was polite and professional.. everything was on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all great service"
Pros: "I think they flew so fast. We could land almost on time even though we departed a hour late. Airplane was new and clean."
Cons: "Boarding was chaos. They overbooked 25? 45? Anyway, they are in panic. They tried to request ppl to take next day flight by giving away 300 gift card etc. the ppl who were told there are no seats upset and arguing at the gate. Flight was delayed for one hour. Once we are on airplane, they are still shuffling seats around, so ppl cannot move forward. Just standing there for 10mins waiting for things to settle. Flight attendants did not give us a headphone. (I have a headphone for iPhone X so I could not connect it to their entertaiment system.)"
Pros: "Smooth. Fast boarding"
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Cons: "No Gluten free option"
Pros: "The lady at the ticket inter helped me em get eat I wanted!"
Pros: "I am used to flying Frontier because of cost but recently traveled Delta and boy did I feel completely spoiled! Not only did my other half get our bags for free due to his status with Delta but the amenities they offer and the comfort of the economy seats compared to other airlines is a major difference. As a chronic pain patient, if I can find a Delta flight for a little more, I will be booking with them for sure! Highly recommend them!"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and the crew barely announced the sections. It took an incredibly long time to bard the longest that I have ever experienced and I couldn't point to any reason why."
Pros: "Everything was in order"
Cons: "None really"
Cons: "My toddler daughter became ill before departure and the crew was awful. They failed to provide me with hardly anything besides 2 blankets and a few remoistened hand wipes to clean up vomit and was very rude when I asked to change seats, even though there were at least 8 other seats open on the flight."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Cons: "I paid for an upgraded seat and it was still very cramped"

Pros: "For the first time in a ling time I felt if I dropped something I didn't have to kiss it goodbye. My knees and back didn't hurt by the end of the fight. I know longer felt like a sardines in a tin."
Pros: "Enjoy able"
Pros: "Short comfortable flight.. good entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "Everything was good with this flight.."
Pros: "From curbside check-in to landing the plane, overall excellent service ! Very pleased to find out they offered a shuttle from checkin to the gate. I am having knee surgery soon and the walk from security to gate 34 LaGuardia would have put me over the top with pain! It was a very nice gentleman that gave me a ride to the gate and even stopped to let me use the bathroom. Thumbs up *****"
Cons: "The fact that I was charged $150 to check a small cosmetics bag is no loose change ! I would have carried it on but my hand is in a brace and I has to have extensive surgery. Then yoy get to the gate, and they repeatedly asked for volunteers to check their bags for free. I think this is a very unfair policy and try to explain it to the curbside attendant. I literally cannot carry more than five pounds in my left hand until I get bone replacement surgery. I'm also having knee surgery soon and this small additional weight would be caused me excruciating pain ! They didn't care and still charged me $150 for a bag thats no bigger than 12 inches and weighs less than ten pounds. Thats the way you treat your first class passengers? One other quick note: the sausage and egg sandwich? that was served for breakfast was absolutely horrible! Thumbs down !"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "I fly Delta Airlines 2x a year and if I had to go on this flight experience alone I would never fly with them again. This particular flight attendant. Brunette who wore all red~ like she had a personal conflict with us from the moment we walked on the plane. We were sitting in the back and could hear the things that she was saying about my grandson and myself. She was rude, snotty, had a sassy mouth. I was COMPLETELY APPALLED as to the way we were treated by her. It was a long flight to have someone you felt was bullying you the whole flight to the moment we were exiting the plane. Karma will come back to her one day..."

Karma will come back to her one day..."
Cons: "No food on a coast to coast flight, outrageous drink prices and a crew that didn't fit in the aisle. Searched at the gate and was sorry I. Am back in America!!!"
Pros: "I liked the in-flight entertainment and the crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "The seats are awful. If you're 6 ft or taller, your legs barely fit if at all. Boarding is ridiculous."
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat No entertainment"
Pros: "I had a middle row seat for this 3 hour 50 minute red eye flight. The plane was quite new. There was plenty of storage space in the bins above the seats. My seat was very comfortable. It reclined a lot. The leg room was more than I needed and I am 6' tall. The individual TV monitor was great. Delta made a long flight quite bearable!"
Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"
Cons: "Seat(19c) is in a position that due to its design causes it to be bumped into continously throughout the flight... I lost track of the amount of times I got jostled by passengers and crew. May want to rethink the use of that seat. They ran out of food. Had to wait over 30 min on the tarmac before being able to deplane."
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Moron putting the seat back in front of me"
Pros: "I liked how fluid and easy the landing was. And I especially liked how we arrived to Orlando in less than the allotted time which was three hours."
Cons: "Did not like how there were not many options for eating, but loved the flight overall."
Pros: "The friendliness and helpfulness of flight attendants was outstanding"
"I checked in using the app flying from IAD to CR and connecting in Panama. I was over 2 hours early for my flight. Upon boarding they didn’t let me board because I needed a paper ticket and a QR code nobody told me about. Your employee decided to just take me out of the flight instead of fixing the issue. She put me on a red flight. That alleged QR code Could have been completed on the plane since I am fully vaccinated. Horrible experience throughout. Your employees are on our parent and rude"
"Friendly crew on plane. Food and beverage service was appreciated. Copa staff at check-in was uninformed or new. He was requesting a document aside from the required negative covid test results to enter the US. On the first leg, a shorter flight, there was a screen on the back of each seat for easy viewing. On the next leg, which was the longer flight, there were only occasional drop down screens that were more difficult to view dependent upon where you were seated."
"Entertaining was limited for such long flights. The crew was good"
"I didn’t like anything!! This is the worst airline. They cancelled our flight last minute. This has happened twice. Fly a different airline if possible. Copa will scam you!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "A very crowded flight"
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: "On time excellent attention perfectly clean"
Cons: "Easy and fast acces to aircraft."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Different movie, more leg room but I'm tall so that is with any plane."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and the seats were comfortable"
Pros: "The crew and ground customer service are great! Overall we were very pleased with COPA and would definitely fly with them again."

Cons: "Late to leave gate/ cramped"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Went above and beyond"
Cons: "On schedule more leg room"
Pros: "Not a single thing. Flight was cancelled and we are being held captive in Costa Rica. We have been given multiple excuses why. Overbooked, weather and the 737 max issue. We just want to go home. Please help us. We have been trying to check in for our new flight with a 20 hour itinerary for 30 minute"
Pros: "Crew and service was great."
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: "Easy flight, good service, attentive crew."
Cons: "Food was not that great."
Pros: "El tiempo fue rapido"
Cons: "La comodidad del avion. Son muy estrechos."
Pros: "The size of the aircraft.period."
Cons: "A crewman took up space when we were loading the plane to discuss something with a customer that could have waited until everyone, including me got a chance to sit down. Then, they almost forgot to ask us for beverages during the meal which was horrible according to several neighbors- I was not hungry."
Pros: "Para poder abordar .........muchas Gracias"
Pros: "No esperaba mucho y menos de un viaje tan corto... En general los vuelos de copa no son muy buenos pero cumplen con el traslado"
Cons: "Confort la comida .... Aunque se salva la persona q me hizo el checkin en el counter a el si le doy 110 puntos eccelentecactitud fue un joven moreno"
Pros: "The lost my bag and couldn’t find it till two days after.... they gave me no voucher or explanation I would like to be refunded foe this terrible experience ...."
Pros: "Crew was outstanding! Pleasant, helpful, and professional, smiling even when dealing with difficult passengers."
Cons: "The sound with the headset faded in and out and was scratchy sometimes. I gave up."
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: "The flight, the food, the confort"
Cons: "The crew at the Orlando airport.....no enough help for elders. my Mom was helped to a wheelchair and left her there to push herself.....No help was given. Very dissapointed"
Pros: "The staff was nice and I liked that it had a TV screen for each chair with entertainment."
Cons: "I paid extra for a seat which stayed it had extra leg room. It seemed to be the same as every other seat. The only benefit is you get to board sooner and get off the plane sooner. As far as extra room I should have booked an emergency door seat."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "The flight crew was friendly, the seat was comfortable, and the flight was quick"
Pros: "People are very friendly"
Cons: "The food is not very good at all, especially for breakfast and snacks. Also, the seats and entertainment are on the older side, therefore not very comfortable (but not uncomfortable) and not easy to watch/enjoy."
Pros: "Great flight attendants!"
Cons: "Often flying to Orlando is a headache because there are always a lot of clueless foreign families and noisy children going to Walt Disney World. This flight was the exception--everything was smooth!"
Pros: "The crew was super polite!"
Cons: "Seats were too cramped."
Pros: "You pay for a ticket. If they get you to your destination safely and close to on time, they did their job. Once, half the fun was getting there; now all the fun is after you arrive."
Pros: "Timing and service"
Cons: "Wait on reclaiming luggage"
Pros: "I was impressed that even though it was such a short flight the crew worked hard to provide everyone food and drinks."
Cons: "This was the first Copa flight that we didn't receive a full meal. The crew also seemed more serious and less friendly than on other Copa flights."
Cons: "El aeropuerto de Panamá e el peor que he visitado en mi vida"
Pros: "Copa has the worlds very best gate agents and check-in agents by far... they had a huge line and held very professional atmosphere"
Cons: "Always the good there was none"
Pros: "Everything from boarding to landing"
Cons: "BAD THINGS: the people in the check in counter! They need more training about: how to treat well amd with respect to people who they do not know anything about!!"
Pros: "Free meal and drinks (including alcohol!) Great service Clean plane Free headphones and movie"
Cons: "If I had to say something negative, I'd say that the crew members have a heavy accent when speaking English. It didn't bother me personally, but some people may not like it."
Cons: "Boarding was too slow"
Cons: "Boarding facilities are inadequate for waiting time. Entertainment system did not work, very disappointing. Paid extra for Business Class seat and this was the most important reason. Flight attendant in charge eas Elogia Ruiz."
Pros: "Everything was ok, easy, fast and got special attention in the airport for flying in copa. We didn't had to make the line for security in Costa Rica's airport"
Cons: "Nothing I can tell"
Pros: "The service by the crew in providing the food and drinks was excellent."
Cons: "I'm still traveling.. copa rebooked on united.. is coming in at midnight instead of 2pm.. missed an dinner event I have planned. Disappointed some people.. plus I'm still not home.."
Pros: "They paid for our food and hotel."
Cons: "Every flight with them I had this week was delayed and canceled. I missed connection flights and one of my connection flights was delayed. At the end of the trip all my luggage never made it back to Boston and now I can't get In Contact with anyone to find my luggage."
Pros: "Nothing at all everything was awful I can not recommend this airline to a friend"
Cons: "Poor service at the counters and customer service on the phone. All of my flight were delayed nothing was on time for all 4 flights and in plane service I was given 1 small drink for a 5 hour 20 min flight. This was the worst experience I have had on any airline I'm very unhappy about this. As for the phone service the rep did not know about my flight being delayed 4 hours because my parents called to see the arrival time and they said it was on time and I called them right after to tell them I was delayed 4 hours. I fell that the US airlines are much better in all these cases I really can not see myself talking well about Copa Airlines after this experience."
Pros: "The service was great. And I had a personal issue so I had to change my schedule and they were very kind and helped me."
Pros: "Free Wifi"
Cons: "Free Wifi all over the flight"
Pros: "The crew was great, as always. Unfortunately, my seat mate was very overweight, pushing into my space. No fault of BA except that bigger seats would help the "growing" population of travelers."
Cons: "Bigger seats for bigger travelers. Especially on long flights. Those of us that are less full figured would be more comfortable. Go back to the system that includes one checked bag and one carry on as included in the advertised price. I know that airlines need to be more competitive, but the ala carte for luggage is not acceptable. Instead, offer an opportunity for customers t donate to offset the carbon impact. Thanks"
Pros: "The overall experience was great! I was extremely satisfied. I thought the crew was very kind and the extra touch of bringing ice cream to everyone as a treat was perfect for our family that had to restless little boys."
Cons: "I did find it strange that the only brought the drink cart around once during the 9 & 1/2 hour flight. It was a cost savings approach more than anything. For the crew, I am sure it was also a time savings approach. When going to find another drink, it was clear supplies were also thinning out."
Cons: "The plane delayed by 30 minutes, I was rushed past security to wrong plane in Orlando, making me miss my flight, cue multiple times as the airlines "British Airways" and "American Airlines" bickered about who's fault it was. I'm still sat in Orlando waiting for my flight after losing my hotel in LA"
Cons: "More legroom."
Pros: "I reached my distanation safe"
Cons: "Newer and cleaner plane better entertainment"
Pros: "Check In went fast, getting through security was also fast. The price was excellent."
Cons: "Small seat, did not recline fully but it was an economy ticket."
Cons: "Getting through customs in UK and getting luggage tags to Dublin was a nightmare. Took over 2 hours, went through 4 lines to get luggage tags and given misinformation. Poorest travel experience in 40 years of traveling. Brits need to learn how to expedite processing."

Pros: "Friendly clean and spacious"
Pros: "Seat comfortable, Crew was great."
Cons: "The guy in front of me pushed his seat back and the space was reduced dramatically, even for lunch. Screen was not so good, but pprobably enough"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the food was good."
Cons: "Being on a plane for 9 hours in those small seats with no leg room is not pleasant, but I don't guess that will ever change. Also, no music to listen to other than United Kingdom bands I never heard of...I tried some... not my thing. Would like to have had some classic rock options, British or otherwise."
Cons: "food / leg room / in-flight entertainment / no wifi / no plugs for electronics - everything was missing and horrible."
Pros: "Flight was safe. Pilots did fine job."
Cons: "Plane was filthy. Crew did not collect rubbish throughout the flight except once immediately after each meal service. I went to the back to throw away my and my seat mate's rubbish, bins were overflowing and untidy. seemed to put out crew members when I asked for a cup with ice."
Cons: "The plan from Philadelphia to Amsterdam didn't have the normal TV screens in the seats ahead of the passengers, which meant we all had one show to watch. :("
Pros: "Food !!the services"
Cons: "The seats not very good and the tv screen"
Pros: "The orderly manner in boarding & customer service"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Great service, good / plentiful food, lots of entertainment options."
Cons: "No outlet / USB to plug in my phone or computer."
Pros: "Loved everything about this flight great complimentary food options"
Pros: "Long haul service and food has improved but service is still kinda ‘cold’. Cabin crew still wears a frown most of the time."
Cons: "The reclining mechanism is not user friendly whereby the chair does not recline smoothly. Unfortunately it falls too quickly and not allow the passenger in the back row to get out of the way. a must thing to improve."
Pros: "I am very glad BA have bought their food service back from the brink. A big improvement."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Crew, ground staff, courtesy, service orientation all hugely lacking."

Cons: "Slow boarding and disembarkation processes."
Cons: "Connecting flight experience"
Pros: "staff friendly."

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."
Cons: "There was no food."
Pros: "Flight good."
Cons: "Your website didn’t tell us bags not included. Cost me an extra£200 at airport. More than poor. Who do I complain to?"
Cons: "My suitcase got stuck in London, now I have to chase it..."
Pros: "see above"
Cons: "see above"
Pros: "Boeing 777"
Cons: "Plane old model, not updated and terrible entertainment"
Pros: "We made it safely"

Pros: "Flights were on time, staff was courteous."
Cons: "Food was not tasty, leg space was inadequate, air conditioning was not adjustable,"
Pros: "Ok food."
Cons: "Horrible flight from a comfort standpoint."
Cons: "Plane was very old and my seat was very out of condition and uncomfortable.... also ordered a gluten free meal which the main meal was fine but the 2nd meal was 2 packets of raisins!! Where as everybody else got a sandwich and snack!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time"
Cons: "Baggage didn't make the connection. No free food or drinks"
Cons: "upon existing the airline, we were instructed to go to a certain gate, which ended up being the wrong gate and by the time we discovered that we were at the wrong place, we missed the flight! British Airways was unhelpful, not compassionate and completely oblivious to their own mistake! I had to purchase a new flight home and was stuck in the airport for over 6 hours! not to mention that they told us the air craft was smaller than the originally scheduled craft so they made us check everything including our carry ons. Thankfully I didn't need any of my medication. This was absolutely the WORST flight home!"
Pros: "A great crew member or more can make a flight so much better."
Cons: "Update your entertainment systems. Head jack was broken and system old."
Pros: "The ease of San Jose airport. The nice, new, clean airplane."
Cons: "Food could be better. Also they ran out of most of the choices. We were in business class and for the price you should be able to get your choice. I do see British Airways does offer a pre-flight meal selection and I would use this next time."
Cons: "No food not even snacks were served"
Pros: "The in-flight service was great!"
Pros: "Nothing good to say its an old plane, rubbish entertainment system no help by the British airway's staff not even in checkin when my girlfriend struggled to weigh bag the staff just looked and offered no assistance. Hardly came round to offer drinks meal was foul and the Sandwick was inedible. I will never fly British airways again I wrongly thought that they were a premier service how wrong was I"
Pros: "The flight was short."
Cons: "The card machine kept declining my cards for a bag of crisps. Seriously! Money was available on all cards. Got to the airport and purchased crisps and tea with no issue. Flight attendants were nice, but aloof."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "We paid $85 each to have extra leg room - which were horrible seats near the toilet. Which became a gathering area and we were unable to sleep/watch movie in peace. Worst of all was the fact that someone was sick in the toilet (inside and out) the toilet was closed BUT no sign is placed on it so people continue to line up and wait..... unless I told them it was not in use.... this went on for 2 hours!!! A simple sigh on the door was all it needed."
Pros: "Free drinks and food when traveling overseas. Possibly cheaper flights than other airlines?"
Cons: "I got switched to American Airlines last minute, which is a sister company of British Airways, apparently. This was 1 of the 2 worst flights that I have ever been on, only second to my other booked flight for this trip home. This flight was 7+ hours long and it was nothing short of horrible. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and barely went back at all. The male flight attendant was clearly annoyed and was short with every person who would ask for anything. He would roll his eyes at every request by customers. At one point I saw him literally toss a sandwich into a customers lap because they were turned the other way and didn't hear him when he asked if they wanted one. There was no way to watch anything unless you had your own device and had downloaded it yourself prior to the flight."
Pros: "Everything was ok. Just OK. Decent meal - if small."
Cons: "Not much space in the cabin. Plane was quite tired. Breakfast, as always, terrible."
Cons: "High cost airline, no service. Food and drink have to be paid for now, prices are ridiculous. Crew rude and unattentive. Easy Jet and Norwegian way better and significant cheaper."
